Hello Share Turners. The seesaw impositions of Covid restrictions and the easing of them has predictable effects on the economy. So we should be able to see immediately which Footsie share prices will rise this week and which won’t? But no. We need to research educated guesses about much later developments in the Covid saga.

It has always amazed me how the paper that purports to be the voice of business has, on so many issues taken a profoundly anti-business line. The FT told us to vote for Blair, to join the EMU and the Euro and to oppose Brexit. Natch it is all in favour of a radical green agenda even if it cripples business in the West. And it cannot get enough of the sort of ESG porn that the FCA also jerks off on every day. Today it bigs up a story about the FTSE Russell Index threatening 208 companies with expulsion. According to the FT:

Hello, Share Munchers. Most indicators point to a surge in share prices during the summer. So much for the city adage ‘Go away in May and don’t come back till Leger Day (early September)’. It’s always wise to keep at least 10% of our assets in cash rather than shares. But I’ve just exchanged some of my dough for stock in expectation that a share boom happens.

We are now up to eight rogue bloggers for Woodlarks with J, the son of reader Jonathan Price joining the party. That means one more person for the “having to talk to Dan Levi rota” so spreading the misery of hearing about the evils of Brexit and why disgraced Guardian fantasist Carole Cadwalladr is a genius, more widely. That is all good news. But think of how we will suffer on the day, even if it is now for less than 2 hours each and make a donation HERE. Meanwhile we continue with our training walks. As I look at the snow falling here in Wales I am glad I did my weekly walk yesterday. But here is a photo from Robert in Cornwall as he made it up to 15 miles.

Who’s a clever boy then? Me. I hope that you are happy holders of Aggreko (AGK) on my advice. Send the thank you ouzos to Tom as I do not drink.

I see that Dechra Pharmaceuticals (DPH) has continued to see a share price rise since I last wrote about the stock here in early September. Back then I concluded that it is hard to push back on ‘improving global animal health and welfare’ but it is an expensive multiple to buy this one. So what is the updated view post its first half results?

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.

Hello, Share Planners. Investing in a shipping broker has a rather historic feeling to it. Isn’t that where the share game first started, with merchants buying shares in ventures by galleons to exploit foreign markets? Shipping brokers often turn up in the exotic works of my favourite author Joseph Conrad. Any road up, today’s choice is a modern version – Braemar Shipping Services (BMS)…

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.

I mean it. Happy New Year to you all, especially our own in house Euro loon Jonathan Price who will be in tears at 11 PM tonight. I shall not be! In this podcast I discuss the FCA and today’s mini-bond calamity in waiting, Supply@ME Capital (SYME), and the Marwyn vehicle (MAC1) where Vin Murria is now on board but where it seems impossible to buy shares. That’s not much fun is it? Vin: how about a Primary Bid offer for we plebs? I also lash out at Priti Patel and the Tories for blowing off the public sector while the private sector is screwed. I thought that is what Labour was for.
