The Admirable Creightons Reveal Great Numbers. But what about its Future. Golden, in my View

Hello, Share Bakers. When the Footsie falls, there are always shares that still shine, often in the small cap bracket. One such outfit is Creightons (CRL) maker and seller of budget cosmetics and hand washes. It’s not long since I reviewed the jolly numbers behind the healthy share price, but let’s now look at something even more important for would-be investors. And that’s future trends.

Morrisons is still rudely unloved

Back in early January I observed that ‘Morrisons (MRW) is rudely unloved’. Since then the shares have done very little, but this morning’s update is another indication that the stock remains cheap – and that Morrisons is a good place to do your food shopping too.

Remote Monitored Systems – an absolute horror of a trading update & a bonkers valuation

Shame on all those such as Zak Mir who have promoted this bag of excrement for today’s trading update was a true horror both in terms of what it said but also what it did not say.  Starting with the latter: this is a trading update which admits that sales are SFA but made no mention of losses or the cash position. Why not? I put it to you that if the company was drowning in cash it would shout about it.  That it does not mention it at all screams out the possibility that another bailout placing is on the way. Then there is what is said which is almost as bad.

Remote Monitored Systems – does anyone believe this Amazon joke projection? Have a look for yourself

Bulls of Remote Monitored Systems (RMS) or paid penny share hustlers, such as LSE Share Talk, are forced to make extraordinary projections about sales of Pharm2Farm face nappies in order to justify urging folks to chuck their cash down the pan by buying these shares. For the current valuation is bonkers. Just see for yourself and ask a few questions.

DS Smith makes progress but no takeover news...yet

I have written many times about DS Smith (SMDS), typically loving-up its exposure to e-commerce delivery box-making…along with a capability for ‘sustainable packaging solutions, paper products and recycling services worldwide’. I know this is not that exciting an area but the first bit in particular has growing demand all around the world. Even the average company is working out that to be competitive against the Amazons of this world, having such a box option matters. Unfortunately for them DS Smith is a big supplier to Amazon too…

Sector excitement tells me to remain optimistic about DS Smith

Today’s numbers from the paper and packaging name Smurfit Kappa (SKG) were damn impressive in my opinion.  Certainly it is no disaster to say that ‘prices rose rapidly in H2…and continue to see prices increasing in early 2021’. And when you look a bit more deeply, you realise that the rise of e-commerce remains a great growth area as firms such as Amazon are driving a lot more demand.  Smurfit Kappa’s CFO observed that such demand is ‘here to stay’ and even Brexit was not that much of a concern given that the company produces locally rather than relying on significant exports between Ireland/Europe and the UK.

More Reasons to Buy More Shares in Morrisons

Hello, Share Scrapers. My holding in Morrison (MRW) the supermarket is one of those stocks I wish I’d sold ages ago. After many years, I’m still nursing an 8% loss. But things are improving for it and among the four big British supermarkets it’s gaining market share. Also, with the lockdowns, sales are well up, with supermarkets staying open and still also selling unimportant stuff.

Morrisons is rudely unloved

It is good to be back writing a few thoughts on UK stocks. Another time I will update some views on a few names such as GVC, which renamed itself Entain (ENT) back in December. What a last few months for it, and the Americans now want to buy it. I also need to do an update on my old pal DS Smith (SMDS), which performed very strongly whilst I was not watching the markets. And on a whole load of other favourites I will update over the next month or two. I am going to leave Next (NXT) to the experts, as an 8% odd romp in the share price has pushed it to crazy levels, and focus here on Wm Morrison (MRW) instead…

Philip Green’s Arcadia to go bust so who is to blame?

It appears that Arcadia, owner of TopShop, Burtons and Dorothy Perkins is unable to tap an additional £30 million banking lifeline and so is likely to go into administration next week putting 13,000 jobs at risk. The odds are that most stores will be bought from the administrators so the actual jobs cull, though painful, will not be as painful as some fear. Already the blame game has started but who is really to blame?

Sell Netflix short as US Subscribers Back Off

Back in May, ten days before the end of that month’s savage sell off on Wall St, I suggested selling a Cannabis Index on the basis that it was likely to lead the market down and lag any gains in the other direction. I am pleased to say that despite the rip-roaring June to-date rally in the US markets, the IG Cannabis Index is now lower than it was at the end of May. It is still an outstanding sell here (the level on the IG Cannabis Index now is 904 but I am sure there are others). Following the same reasoning, I think Netflix (NASDAQ:NFLX) is an excellent short after yesterday’s 11% fall…

Is Sky the first FTSE-100 name headlining a deal Sunday?

So we wake to Sky (SKY) having a new owner, as media behemoth Comcast beat another media behemoth Fox (in effective combination with Disney) in a blind auction for Europe's biggest satellite TV operator.  Boy did it pay up though.  Comcast won with a final bid of £17.28 a share, versus a Fox bid of £15.67 a share for the 61% of Sky it did not already own.  So if you own Sky shares...well done.  As I own Disney shares, I feel more relief that it did not massively overpay (Disney is already buying a bunch of assets from 21st Century Fox and is in the throes of launching its own streaming channel to compete with Amazon and Netflix, so it has enough on its plate).
