Okay, VSA Resources is the house broker so it is paid to be bullish but could these shares really be a five bagger plus? Analyst Oliver O’Donnell reckons so and opines:
This is the great Leo the man who has transformed Del Boy Lenigas operation LGO Energy into a company that is going places, Columbus Energy (CERP). This presentation struck me as not bad at all.
Broker VSA - which is house so not impartial - has published a deatiled research report on Columbus Energy (CERP) explaining why the shares, at 5.4p, are worth 26p. It writes:
In his private email to clients this morning Andrew Monk of VSA, broker to Columbus (CERP) brings charts from yesterday's AGM presentation and uses them to explain why he sees the shares, he first tipped at sub 2p, roofing it. He is not the only fan...but first to Monkey who gushes:
Columbus (CERP) has renegotiated the terms of its $8.9 million Convertible Security Funding Agreement with Lind Partners, LLC , announced by the old regime on 7 December 2016. This is big news and it is good news.
Columbus Energy (CERP), formerly LGO, has continued the new broom change process. It has announced that Fergus Jenkins has stepped down from the Board and from his role as Chief Operating Officer, with immediate effect. He will remain with the Company and act as an advisor to the Board until 31 January 2018 but that is just a face save for Fergus. That is the last of the "ancien regime" cronies kicked into touch.
Andrew Monk of VSA Resources has a geography lesson for those following oil explorers. Believe it or not the hot spot is not somewhere close to Gatwick Airport but somewhere a bit more exotic.
Shares are valued on the basis of what is to come. that is to say future earnings ( or lack of them). Not historic losses, profits or performance. But shares in Columbus (CERP), the former LGO Energy have been marked a tad lower after an operational update as punters looked in the rear view mirror. Their error = your opportunity.
We tipped these shares a couple of weeks ago for a third time. The shares are now 2.7p in the middle and so even at the bid we are up on this one. But our target to sell at 3.5p+ so there is more to go for. Our original share tip reads:
This evening new LEGO Energy (LGO) boss Leo Koot will host an analysts briefing in the City on the day the company changed its name to Columbus Energy (CERP). The company has upgraded its FD and a statement issued is exceedingly upbeat. For that, as a loyal shareholder, I am glad. But the statement also contains aboslute A grade corporate gibberish/bullshit. Who is responsible for what follows? Please do not say it is Leo.
