2017-06-12 00:47:24

Stanley Gibbons bid approach - maybe mad Edi is not mad after all?

2017-06-11 09:05:57

This has been an awfu sharel tip and so, as a shareholder myself, I almost welcome an end to my suffering. I am sure the bidder is looking to pick up assets on the cheap and won't pay anything like a full price but at least the shares are up by 2.125p to 13.25p mid.

2017-06-04 05:28:51

2017-01-05 04:31:48

Stanley Gibbons Dreadful Results

2016-10-05 03:02:56

Only posters on the LSE Asylum get it right 100% of the time. That is why they are all millionaires but are so generous that they still share their wisdom with the rest of us. Steve & I don't always get it right. Since we launched the Nifty Fifty website almost four years ago our second worst tip has been Stanley Gibbons (SGI). Overall we are still c20% per tip up with an average holding period of less than a year. But this one has not helped our average.

Aaagh. We have called this terribly. Only BB Morons always get it right we have got this wrong and can only apologise. Are we selling? Where next for the shares?


Stanley Gibbons - where to start?

2016-02-25 02:55:44

We start with an apology - this has been an awful share tip. If only we were Wildes or Bulletin Board Morons and got every tip 100% right. But we are human. So apologise. Stanley Gibbons (SGI) has announced that it “now believes that for the year to 31 March 2016 the group will report an adjusted loss before tax of between £1 million and £2 million”, that it“is in the process of raising approximately £10 million of new equity” and the appointments of a new nominated adviser & broker (finnCap) and new auditor (BDO).

So I've bought some shares for FIML at 99p.

2015-04-06 07:43:37

Yes I know that it has just had a profits warning and that the old adage is that warnings come in threes. But I do not expect that to be the case with Stanley Gibbons (SGI) and so it is my third share tip for Easter at 249p.

2013-12-24 09:00:27
