I told you that Metro Bank was dodgy...and that you shouldn't underestimate Burberry's Chinese chavs!
Hello, Share Grabbers. Well, the New Year has bumped off to a decent start after a disastrous end to 2018. All the fears about a no-deal Brexit seem to have been priced in now. And some better news about the affair should send shares upwards fast. But, of course, some companies will continue to do better than others...

Tipster sentiment spiked as tipsters saw buying opportunities in the wake of an October sell-off. Earlier this month Roland Head at the Motley Fool wrote “we’re interested in gaining an advantage over the market, not following the crowd”, and as key UK indices dropped over 5% this month tipsters were drawn to undervalued companies.
Serica Energy (SQZ) has been one of my best performing share tips ever, but following recent developments now would seem to be a good time to bank some profit, if you haven’t already done so.
Given that I have closely followed the Serica Energy (SQZ) story here closely over the last few years, and in light of the news this week, I felt that I should give my current thoughts on it.
When it comes to the AIM resources sector, any sort of delay or news which is perceived to be negative can have a negative effect on the share price which is far from justified. Of course there is a lot of junk on the market and when bad news comes and it inevitably crashes, it is of no real surprise, but there are other companies where a temporary hit to the share price can present a great buying opportunity.
