Keeping optimistic for 2022

Did you have a good start to the year yesterday? I had one or two excitements but as I did not enter 2022 with either (1) a bunch of bond holdings and/or (2) a bunch of technology sector positions, it was a great start to the year.

The Barclays boss and Prince Andrew and Bill Clinton's paedo mate, the late Jeffrey Epstein

Hello November! The eleventh month of the year has always been an interesting one for the world’s investors with over the last 70, 20 or 10 years only April – on average – generating a similar return. Of course nothing is guaranteed but the reason why November has on average performed well is a combination of Q3 earnings updates and building hopes towards upcoming end of year brokerage updates towards the following year. It is not guaranteed, but its all good active investment fun and now for a couple of bits of excitement in today’s news.

Money raising and a rejected takeover, so what is going on at easyJet?

I have been an easyJet (EZJ) fan for a while and, whilst holding some shares going into the COVID-19 crisis hurt, doubling up on the shares just under eighteen months ago has worked out well. So today’s complex update is of interest at many levels…especially as the shares today are down by more than 10% to only just over a 7 quid price following news of a (turned down) takeover approach and a decision to raise money. What is going on?

Esken (former Stobart Group) – update on Ryanair Departure

As I had hoped, fully listed Esken (ESKN) has updated the market this morning on Friday’s Red Flags at Night announcement that Ryanair is departing from London Southend Airport. Good news…..well, up to a point.

Red Flags at Night: Esken (ex-Stobart Group) Announces Departure of Ryanair from Southend at 5.36pm

Oh dear, oh dear, oh dear. 5.36pm on  a Friday evening in August – just as the City dives into its second G&T after a long week, or is already far away on holiday – clearly is a good  time to bury bad news! Fully listed Esken (ESKN) – the former Stobart Group (STOB) – has announced, at no-one is watching O’Clock, that Ryanair (RYA) has decided to chop its operations at Southend airport. It is yet another hammer blow for Esken’s/Stobart’s punch-drunk shareholders. The timing – apart from being announced late on a Friday evening when everybody had gone home – is even more terrible as Esken is in the middle of an open offer alongside the recent placing at 14p. With the shares having already dropped to 16p to sell at Friday’s close, will this news kybosh the whole operation?

RyanAir – what is its real cash position as it still shits on customers from on high while snaffling taxpayer funds?

Michael O’Leary and RyanAir (RYA) boasts that it has, or had, one of the strongest balance sheets in the industry. But is its stated cash balance the true balance or is it inflated by shitting on its customers. Let me introduce you to my brother-in-law and his family….

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Maybe this time the odious bullshitter O'Leary is right

In today's podcast I look at the pronouncements from the odious leprechaun at Ryanair (RYA), Michael O'Leary. He may be right in what he says but that is no reason to buy airline shares. Then I cover Corero (CNS), Open Orphan (ORPH), where I am both vindicated after Friday's letter to AIM Regulation and also a seller of more shares today, Novacyt (NCYT), Collagen (COS), Falanx (FLX), and Bidstack (BIDS). Thanks to those who have donated to Rogue Bloggers for Woodlarks but most of you have not yet! Please do spare a few bob as the campsite needs our help urgently if it is to make it to 2021. Donate HERE

Video: Michael O'Leary whines for Ireland on EU flag carrier bailouts

Remember when the noxious leprechaun told us that RyanAir (RYA) might have to quit Britain if we voted for Brexit? It seems he is not leaving now and thinks we Britishers are jolly good chaps for bailing out his airline even though it sits on a vast cash pile. However, as his airline faces massive price competition as EU member states break all the rules to bail out flag carriers, O'Leary took to CNBC to complain. Of course he is correct, this is a crazy breach of the rules and spunk of taxpayer cash. But as a consumer facing years of cheap flights with the added joy of seeing the odious O'Leary kicked in the gonads and EU taxpayers stiffed with the bill my libertarian anger is somewhat muted.  Enjoy the video.

Ryanair Could Face Headwinds which Might Keep the Share Price Grounded

Hello Share Flingers. It’s easy to spot possible headwinds in the flying game. The green lobby against air travel is getting stronger. Brexit will make travel to 27 countries more difficult. Oil prices are rising again after a brief rest. The fallen pound makes trips abroad more expensive and so on...

Why Ryanair Shares May Not Fly So Well in the Future

Hello, Share Wobblers. Investing in airlines is something I stopped doing a long time ago. And since I sold my British Airways shares years ago, I’ve probably saved a lot of money. It’s such a volatile sector. It’s at the mercy of world economics, rising fuel prices, fierce competition, strikes and compensation claims...

Share price shockers at easyJet and the Royal Mail

A rough old start for certain large cap UK equities this week. Tom has already commented on Ryanair (RYA) and today's September traffic from the same company does nothing to encourage me to bottom fish here. By contrast, the knock-on impact on easyJet (EZJ) shares - which I loved up on these pages on Saturday - has been pretty savage, pushing the shares down 10% odd since the Friday close…

Tom Winnifrith's Bearcast: Big Sofa's boss Liddington is a corporate wanker who should be fired

I have told this to Simon Liddington to his face but my comments merit a wider audience. I apologise for a dire share tip. I have lost £40,000 myself on Big Sofa (BST) and I must take blame for my own decisions. But I also have words for Arden Partners but the buck stops with the pathetic failure Liddington who MUST GO NOW! I also comment on Avanti Communications (AVN), Ryanair (RYA) and on Rosslyn  Data Technologies (RDT) and Avocet (AVM)

Getting sleazy with easyJet

We all love to hate the low cost airline carriers but at least easyJet (EZJ) has not completely shot itself in the foot like its great peer Ryanair (RYA) which appears incapable of having even half reasonable internal labour relations.  EasyJet has also been smart in taking advantage of some airline sector developments by hiring staff from the failed UK airline Monarch and buying assets in Germany following the Air Berlin bankruptcy.

Tom Winnifrith Bonus Bearcast: Stupid Theresa May jumps on gender pay gap bandwagon, media fails to see how meaningless data really is

As you know I care greatly about the way meaningless data is misinterpreted when it comes to the gender pay gap. That got me into an Orwellian soup thanks to a bedwetting millennial when I gave THIS lecture at Bath Spa University. Today is the day by when all companies must publish gender pay data. But the data offered is utterly meaningless and the fact that Theresa May uses it as she jumps on the bandwagon show what a silly woman she is. The BBC is wilfully misreporting it too as you can see below ref RyanAir (RYA). I explain why today's wall to wall coverage is so misleading.

Hat Tip to Easyjet CEO Johan Lundgren for taking me seriously as a customer

You may remember that in a podcast (HERE) on 4th March I recalled a horrific 22 hour trip from Kalamata, via Athens Airport, to Bristol made hellish not just by snow but by the behaviour of EasyJet (EZJ) staff who repeatedly lied to me and fellow passengers. last night I sent that podcast to EasyJet CEO Johan Lundgren with a note:

As Airports Fill Up for Christmas, EasyJet Could Fly Up and Away

Hello, Share Smoothers. There's no point in my knocking the service given by the budget airline Easyjet (EZJ). For one thing, it would be hypocritical as I use the service more than any other flyer. This will no doubt apply to many of the other passengers swelling the airports for Christmas. And at last I am able to commend your further research into the company, as things are looking up.

Like Yorkshire Airlines, This Avation Giant's Shares May Go Hey Up! - and Away

Hello, Share Scoopers. We all know that investing in airlines is one of the riskier areas of share shifting. What with the Ryanair (RYA) situation and the end of good old Monarch. But the more speculative among us should not, given a huge surge in air travel, give up on the flying sector altogether. So may I suggest that you look at another British-based budget airline.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Eric Schaer of MySQUAR your soul will burn in hell you bastard & your company is a POS too

A recent statement by MySquar (MYSQ)confuses genocide and mass rape with "civil unrest". This is obscene and shows that the company is morally bankrupt. Its CEO Eric Schaer will see his soul burn in hell for this and it makes me unspeakably angry. The company is a worthless piece of crap but promoting that is not now Eric's biggest sin. All is explained in this podcast. I also cover China New Energy (CNEL), Ryanair (RYA) - see this link - Petro Matad (MATD), FastForward (FFWD) and, in some detail, Paternoster Resources (PRS).

Time to boycott Ryanair it lies and treats passengers with contempt once too often

At no-one is watching O'Clock on Friday , 5.29 PM, Michael O'Leary's Ryanair (RYA) slipped out a statement that is obviously a lie shows utter contempt for its customers. Not that this is a novelty.

Ryanair - This is how you run an airline! Although the shares are probably not a Buy

I know that the Sherriff of these parts is no fan of Michael O'Leary (and I also disagree with the Irishman's stance on Brexit) but there is no denying the fact that he changed air travel for the better by providing greater capacity at lower prices than anyone had previously done. Today's Q1 result shows how the momentum continues.

Wizz Air - The Ryanair of the East posts top results: Buy!

Those who have read our coverage of Fastjet (FJET) on this website know that we have no qualms about warnings investors away from worthless airlines. But I believe there are worthwhile alternatives, and Wizz Air (WIZZ) happens to be one of them. The airline today posted record Q1 results.

Ryanair boss Michael O'Leary - what he really thinks of the EU

Though not actually British, Michael O'Leary, the Ryanair (RYA) boss, is now an official ambassador for Project Fear telling us all that we must vote to stay in the EU or else. But back in 2011 he went to Brussels to tell the truth about what he actually thought of the EU, a body he described on that day as "The Evil Empire". Here captured on camera is what the pompous little prick really thinks

Elsewhere I look at the piece of Turkish that is Golden Saint Resources (GSR) - still pissing away £3k a month on PR genius Steffi - as it heads for insolvency again. Then it is onto Nighthawk (HAWK) and Trinity Exploration (TRIN) and the problems for banks that lend to oil companies. Then I refer to HSS Hire (HSS) and cover Andalas (ADL) again as its shares sink like a stone. They have a lot further to sink, sell now!

Petroneft – negotiations at gunpoint?

So the sack-the-board EGM (the sequel) was adjourned at AIM- and Dublin ESM-listed Petroneft (PTR) when it was announced that the company was pleased to announce that it was in advanced discussion with (almost) 30% shareholder and EGM requisitioner Natlata over and agreement on Board and management composition. I hope that not many shareholders bothered to make the trip to Dublin for that, given that it only announced at 2pm on Monday – the day of the 11am EGM.

It’s Hey Up and Away! as this Yorkshire Lad Suggests We Look at Airlines.

Hello Share Muddlers: In an earlier piece this week, I opined that we should not be fearful of investing in airlines, just because murderous terrorists are at large. The argument was that there are so few airline incidents that the chances of being embroiled in one are more or less nil. And yet airline shares have suffered in the last few weeks. Ever since that crash of the flight from Egypt to Russia, to be exact.

Only buy EasyJet when its shares lose a bit of altitude

I was on an EasyJet (EZJ) plane yesterday and a generally fairly pleasant experience it was too.  Admittedly there were not free drinks or nibbles, I had to print out my own boarding card (in a personal technological first I actually downloaded it to my phone – who said you cannot teach an old dog new tricks!) and there were attempts to cross-sell me all sorts of things I did not want but as an overall A-to-B travel experience it was absolutely fine and did what it said on the tin without being too minimalist or crude.

Why I paid more NOT to fly Ryanair? Because it is just so cheap and nasty and tries to hustle me at every point

I have just booked my flight to Athens next week. RyanAir (RYA) was the cheapest flight but once you add in the charge for taking one full suitcase the gap between it and British Airways narrowed. And do I really want to trek out to Stansted rather than go to Heathrow on the tube which is much cheaper for me? The cost gap narrows again. And then O’Leary’s website tried to nickel and dime me on insurance and I just gave up and went with BA.
