Hello, Share Scrumpers. As Uncle Tom kindly reminds you from time to time, I’m of a great age. This leaves me prone to a few minor health issues that require small-time surgery. But I have to endure discomfort until the covid-ravaged waiting lists at my local hospital push me to the top. But what has this to do with buying and selling shares?

I start on the issue of PLCs with unpaid bills from lockdown. There will be some catch-ups and icebergs ahead. Cineworld (CINE) is a case study. Then the stock I am buying tomorrow. It is NOT Open Orphan (ORPH) or Red Rock Resources (RRR) as some of you think and I discuss both. Then to Ben & Jerry’s and its hatred of the Jewish state. I am tempted to buy a share in Unilever (ULVR) to go to its next AGM.

Hello, Share Lovers. One of the best indicators of a company that might be going places is when directors have skin in the game. That is: they own a lot of shares. And it’s better still when they’ve very recently bought more. So perhaps it’s time to have another look at a AIM medical pioneer, Open Orphan (ORPH).

The most read non-Tom article is Bacanora is trading at a big discount to the cash offer price, is it worth buying? by Gary Newman at number five, or number 13 including Bearcasts and Tom’s new shareshow. Which one is the best of the week? Tell me in the comments.

Following yesterday’s shock revelations here of fine upstanding behaviour by no one at all in the Open Orphan (ORPH) camp apart from the company’s saintly boss Cathal Friel, the company’s retained broker, FinnCap (FCAP), has it appears been forced to issue a short statement.

This is a tale which leaves no one involved, other than Open Orphan PLC (ORPH), looking like angels. It is also an invitation to you from Sam Allen at Walbrook PR to front run a broker upgrade.

After years as a serial AIM dog about which we repeatedly warned, Mountfield Group (MOGP) is now a cash shell c/o a Peterhouse Corporate Finance Special. A recent placing at 0.1975p has allowed many of the spiv, sewer dwelling, clients of Peterhouse to flip their stock for a quick turn. For them and also the advisers who racked up costs of c£300,000 on the £3.1 million placing it is coke, hookers and in many cases warrants all round. Yum Yum. But this is perhaps not a total tale from the sewer.

Thanks to reader Paul we have an answer. Normally companies presenting at such events, as they pay to do so, do not always deliver in terms of share price gains. In fact Ed Croft of Stockopedia claims they always do the reverse, they underperform. That would be unlike big calls from Stockopedia, which tipped Wirecard as a storming buy 2 days before what was obviously Europe’s largest fraud went tits up and also said Quindell was one of the cheapest shares on AIM. Did I mention Globo, Ed had that as a big buy too before it became a zero. Anyhow back to our show in May…

Hello, Share Pickers. Should you hate making big decisions, share pricking is not for you. A fairly frequent armchair trader has to make them all the time. It’s not just a question of whether we should dump a share, hold or buy more. There’s the more pertinent issue of timing, either long-term or at what part of the day to hit the buy or sell button. I suspect most of us are dithery decision-makers.

Hello, Share Graspers. Truth be told I’ve just had a pretty poor week. One of my biggest investments, the futuristic battery maker Ceres (CRW) has continued an unexplained fall. It began when a big fund sold about 5% of the shares. Though as I opined at the time, that was understandable and no reflection on Ceres. This was a fund that buys interests in bargain companies and comes out as a matter of policy when the shares have a bumper rise.
