The oil price recovery continues and sector guru Peter Brailey has noted HERE that it is becoming very clear that demand is recovering back to pre-Covid levels along with production and storage decline trends. From around $67, he now sees $100 oil this year as very likely and perhaps inevitable rather than possible. And so to a geared way to play this…
EnQuest (ENQ) is a company that I have followed for a long time and have previously been invested in myself, but over the past few years its shares have performed terribly and has never really recovered from the previous oil price slump, which bottomed out in 2016.

Aside from the continued implosion at the correctly friendless Amigo Holdings (AMGO) which this morning has announced the departure (in 2020) of both the chair and the CEO...the most interesting of today's regulatory disclosures for me has to be Tesco (TSCO) noting that - following weekend press reports - it has 'commenced a review of the strategic options for its businesses in Thailand and Malaysia, including an evaluation of a possible sale of these businesses'…
A “Trading Statement” from learning and skills company with courses delivered on sites in London, Manchester, Singapore, Malaysia and online, Malvern International (MLVN) includes “full year revenues are now expected to be modestly ahead year on year… the board expects to report a positive underlying EBITDA for the year… The board with its new members believes that it is pursuing the right strategy in diversifying its product offering and locations”. The shares have currently responded to comfortably below 1p – er, circa 50% lower!...

Hardly a day goes by on AIM without some complete piece of junk being pumped up to some crazy share price level, and it often happens as a result of private investors failing to actually read RNSs properly and understand what they mean. Today has been the turn of failing IT company CSF Group (CSFG).
As I had suggested might happen several times, Nomad Stifel has resigned the Fusionex (FXI) account. It could not wait for the AIM delisting on the 26th. Instead it gave notice after hours yesterday that it was quitting as Nomad and Broker with effect from 5PM today. Hooray.Game over.
Shares in Fusionex (FXI) the tech play from the Norfolk province of Malaysia still trade at 45.5p valuing the company at c£20 million. This has to be the biggest slam dunk short in London because at 10 AM tomorrow...
Since I last covered MP Evans (MPE) in May, there has been no lack of drama on AIM. But if you just wanted to own a decent business, collect a few dividends and sleep somewhat soundly at night, you could have done a lot worse than buying into this company.
We have already noted that AIM-listed Galasys (GLS) appears to be minus a company secretary, minus a registered office, minus a Nomad, minus a Broker and minus a NED or two since the board declared war upon itself last year. Now it seems that two disgruntled shareholders have decided enough is enough, but the implications as to what has been going on are dreadful.
Scouring the market or bargains has the unsurprising result that most (nearly all) of what you find are stock market duds. Unfortunately, I think that those investors who have piled into CSF Group (CSFG) and helped the price to treble on Friday are going to find that it is no exception. Indeed, it looks quite a bit riskier than the typical “value” investment.
We have been covering AIM-listed, but not (quite) AIM-China Galasys (GLS) through the who-is –in-charge battle since last October. There have been court proceedings in the UK, Jersey and Malaysia and here we are in April 2016 with still no resolution. Yesterday morning the company issued an update: Jersey proceedings were suspended as a kiss-and-make-up negotiation was underway, and in Malaysia a ruling went for the company and its directors (one of them former) but seems to have been appealed.
The farce continues apace with AIM-listed Malaysia and China play Galasys (GLS). This morning we were served up with a rum’n’coke for breakfast in the form of a trading statement. On the one hand there was plenty of blather about numerous and significant new contracts being won, but on the other there are ongoing legal actions in the UK, Jersey and Malaysia to sort out who actually runs the company and we are warned that the costs could put a big dent in the bottom line.
We have previously reported (HERE) on the farce that is AIM-listed Galasys (GLS), the company where two directors were announced to have stepped down only for those directors to resort to law. There are three sets of legal proceedings – in the UK, Jersey and Malaysia and the company updated the market on Friday morning: it looks set to drag on for some time. Just who is in charge in the meantime? Anyone?
AIM-listed China and Malaysia hybrid Galasys (GLS) is turning into a fascinating soap-opera and the entertainment was turned up another notch yesterday. Entertainment for onlookers that is, but not for shareholders who might be more than a little concerned at the ongoing difficulty in establishing quite who is in charge – or, at least, who should be in charge – of the company.
