You would have thought that even being able to spell or say Petropavlovsk (POG) would give a trader some right to make money here. Er…no.
Hello Share Dabblers: There's an odd situation building up in Shareland. The Footsie is not behaving as I would, after yonks of experience, expect it to behave.
Scientific digital camera developer and manufacturer Andor Technology (AND) has announced results for a year ended 30th September 2013 which it found “more challenging in terms of sales than we had predicted” as “government expenditure in research curtailed across our principal markets”. The company has also updated that it “is disappointed that Oxford Instruments was not able to increase its offer price in light of the considerable management time that has been spent in helping Oxford Instruments understand Andor's business and its future prospects”. The follows a further letter from Oxford Instruments reiterating 500p per share as its “possible offer” amount for Andor. The following updates.
I had never done a spread bet in my life until eight days ago. But I have just completed my fifth trade – selling Cupid (CUP) at £4 a penny at 54p. My stop is set at 64p.
Last week’s announcement by Cupid (CUP) that its CEO and largest shareholder Bill Dobbie is stepping down struck me as rather odd.
If you believe in continuing US and UK economic recovery, then Wolseley (WOS) the building and construction supplier is the share to ride it.
It should have been a walk in the park for bulls of Plexus Holdings this autumn, something which the triple unfilled gaps to the upside from July and the subsequent gap fill failure above the 200 day moving average currently at £2.33 would attest to in terms of a very positive charting setup here for the oil and gas engineering group.
Centamin shares have provided entertainment all kinds to traders over recent months, although to be fair it can be said that given the horrific price action as far as the underlying metal is concerned we have not been treated to as bad a ride as one might have expected. That said, the current situation is pivotal given the way that the floor of a rising trend channel from March this year is now in play.
Hello Share Finders: I'm a bit under the weather having had a tooth out. One of those back molars with three prongs.
Plastics products manufacturer for global niche markets, Plastics Capital (PLA) has announced results for the six months ended 30th September 2013 which note that “revenue growth has resumed on the back of some partial demand recovery from customers in Europe and we have continued to win new business” though that the company has also been “affected either by prior period overstocking or customer delays in the commencement of many projects affecting start of production dates”. So what is the net impact and the outlook from here?
To bounce or not to bounce? I have been watching the Standard and Chartered (STAN) share price like a man hopefully looking for a parting of clouds after bad weather but they do not part!
The house broker to Creston plc (CRE) has, following the marketing services company’s recent results announcement for the six months ended 30th September 2013, downgraded its earnings forecasts, though noting that the company “is positioned for stronger growth in 2H and the pitch activity bodes well for the medium-term performance of the group, especially given the improving UK advertising environment”.
11 Days ago I tipped Beacon Hill (BHR) at 0.8p – the shares now trade at 1.22p. Now I do not want to sound like a total spiv, but..
The party for fans of Nighthawk Energy (HAWK) on a charting basis started with the bull flag buy signal above the 200 day moving average in July, followed by the golden cross buy signal between the 50 day / 200 day moving averages in July.
Back in the summer I covered Afriag (AFRI) at 1.3p after interviewing David Lenigas. I suggested the 1.3p stock would sharpishly become 2p. Fortune favoured the brave and there was a stack of reasons why investors would miss the rise then as they might now.
Over the years The Closet Chartist grew up attempting to decipher not only the golden prose of the Godfather of UK Technical Analysis – Zak Mir, but also the tricks of the trade he offered in a quite unique fashion.
The dismal nine year tale of woe that has been AIM Cesspit posterboy Cyan Holdings (CYAN) continued today with news of a £1.1 million placing at just 0.15p. The Bulletin Board Morons who abused me, as I have warned of this disaster in waiting for more than six months, lose again.
Pete Landau, the head honcho at Range Resources (RRL) has been busy emailing shareholders about my weekend opus magnus. Good for him to come out fighting. Low life CEOs would resort to hiring bully boy City lawyers to try to gag me. Landau seems happy to debate the facts. For that I really do give him full credit. Pete: you are THE man!
Hello Share Twiddlers: With your permission, gang, I'm going to look at banks again.
I approve of AIM companies doing rights issues rather than discounted placings to City insiders. But not when the company in question is, to use the technical term, fucked. That brings me to dual listed Scotgold (SGZ) which, I have noted before on this website, is a total POS.
The modest deflation in place in the shares of Blue Jay Mining over the last several weeks still has some way further to run in my opinion. Here are the reasons why:
Is there a better thing to do on a Sunday than to sit back and read a real, meaty article that is meant to be savoured and enjoyed? Not a blog post, not a news item. Like when we used to do with newspapers before the smart phone ruined everything.
After a lengthy hiatus, the Bulletin Board Moron of the Week came back last week , thanks to the unrelenting lobbying of ShareProphets member Juicin Drumroll. But Juicin did not win, being pipped by a splendid entry from Drunken Sailor as you can see HERE. So to give JD another chance...
Ariana Resources (AAU) has updated on performance from the Kiziltepe mine joint venture, emphasising “strong operational cash flow” and “we remain fully on track to deliver on our production guidance for the year”…
Turning to my third, and the most recent, quoted constituent of Woodford Patient Capital Trust (WPCT) this weekend, I thought I should give a warm welcome to Sensyne Health (SENS) that joined AIM on Friday at a very nice valuation indeed. It’s good to see that the words ‘healthtech’ and ‘AI’ are able to suck in as much dumb money from the markets these days as the word ‘blockchain’!
What I am looking from you this week, dear reader, are blurbs that I can use to promote subscriptions to ShareProphets. If you have found ShareProphets valuable, would you be so kind as to write a one-liner in the comments that I can put on the subscription page to knock over those on the fence?
Continuing my leisurely weekend stroll through the cash-guzzling listed stocks in Woodford Patient Capital Trust (WPCT), I’ll look at his second Norwegian dog, Thin Film Electronics, as its half year results came out yesterday.
Something a bit different for the weekend. Did you see that the US President has asked the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) to look at whether the quarterly report cycle, that almost all publicly listed US corporations adhere to, should be cut back to reduce regulatory barriers and give a boost to longer-term thinking. Like him or loathe him, I think the Donald has muddled thinking on this issue. I see that Tom Winnifrith, the President's biggest fan in the UK, agrees with me HERE.
Hello Share Stripers. How's this for an encouraging set of results? Balfour Beatty (BBY) has announced that underlying operating gains for the first half of 2018 are up 69%. That brings them to £66 million. And what makes that mighty jump even more impressive is that it was achieved on less revenue.
An update from luxury brand group Mulberry (MUL) commences it has considered the impact of recent developments at House of Fraser and “is expecting to provide £3 million for exceptional costs in the results for the six months to 30 September 2018”. But why a current more than 17% share price fall, wiping approaching £60 million off the market capitalisation?...
The current US bull market started its life on March 9, 2009, one of the darkest moments of the financial crisis, when the S&P 500 touched 666. Since then it climbed to a high of 2,872, in January of this year, and still holds above 2,850, for a gain of more than 320 percent. On August 22, the current US bull market turns 3,453 days old— putting it one day more than the longest bull market, which ran from October 1990 and ended with the bursting of the tech bubble in March 2000.
