Hello Share Shavers. One of my all-time big successes has been Creightons (CRL), the pocket company which does things to make your car smell better, fake suntans and so on. It wasn’t much more than a penny a throw at one of its darkest stages. Then the City finally woke up to its sterling performance and the share reached 45p. But you have to know when to say enough is enough and I sold a large lump of my shares at 43p. I wish I’d dumped the lot because they fell to 24p.
Creightons (CRL) has made a 4:05pm Trading update - expected 2018 outturn announcement. I guess it ain’t going to be good then…
Hello, Share Peekers. Like some of mine, your shares are probably making some real money in this continuing bull market. But will it keep going? My own view is that it will, bolstered by the fabled Santa Rally. But watch out for the New Year Party hang-over. And even then, selected penny shares will keep on rising, as they often do when the Footsie carnival falters. Here then are some of my favourite small cap jewels, one of which has already boosted my bank balance big time. And I believe that it, and the other two selections, have further value waiting in the wings.
Hello Share Scorchers. There are still quite a few of our regular readers who can only glean the first paragraph of each article. Just to save less than £1.50 a week. Don’t they realise they would retrieve thousands of pounds just by following our warnings about dodgy cpmpanies they might otherwise stay with till the very end? I can’t understand human nature, and never will.
Hello, Share Scramblers. As my shares in IQE (IQE) were sold in anticipation of a lacklustre set of figures, I am now looking for new homes for the profits I made. I had contemplated diving back into IQE once the share price had re-settled, but I cannot see it becoming another ASOS now.
Hello Share Smatterers. If anyone ever berates you for risking your money on penny shares, you might want to tell them the following tale.
Hello Share Crushers. I’m going to have to bring my currently favourite share before you yet again. Stock in Creightons (CRL) once reached a low of about 2p a pop. As I write it is just short of 25p.
Hello Share Sappers. Occasionally armchair tycoons like us come across a little jewel. When it happens, and I’ve commended this share to you previously, it is very tempting to blow my own trumpet. Which is what I now do with Creightons (CRL).
Hello Share Finders. Probably the smallest firm I invest in currently is Creightons (CRL). This has not deterred me from recommending it to you from time to time. Luckily, each time I bring it up, we seem to be rewarded with further gains.
Hello Share Fans. These days I find myself commending to your further investigation shares that I do not own myself more than shares that I do. One reason is that I feel it’s part of my job to explore promising companies which don’t always show up often on the City radar.
Hello Share Trundlers. Some of my colleagues on this wondrous website may not agree with me, but I think a full listing on the stock exchange is worth more, for peace of mind, than the hit and miss world of AIM. I am especially encouraged if the fully listed firm is a true minnow. And I give today for your further research, Creightons (CRL).
Hello Share Smashers. I drew your attention a while back to Creightons (CRL). It fashions toiletries and things which make your car smell nice. The very popular Lidl is an outlet for its produce.
My investment in a little firm called Creightons (CRL) sometimes raises a smile among my friends.
Hello Share Nudgers: Many, many years ago I was persuaded by a good friend to invest in Creightons (CRL). You probably haven't heard of them – they're so small and usually moribund.They have a market cap of just £2m. They make soaps, fragrances and toiletries, such as things you put in cars to make them smell a bit better.
