Stanley Gibbons (SGI) has updated including that “all areas of the business remain open and functioning other than the physical shop” and “the coin market has remained quite robust in recent weeks and we have seen evidence of more people showing an interest in both coin and stamp collecting”. However, the shares have currently responded lower, to 2.5p...
Stanley Gibbons (SGI) has announced a Proposed Refinancing, including raising £6.2 million at 2.5p per share… and the shares have currently responded more than 15% higher on yesterday, above 5.5p…
Star Wars beckons. Happy days. Ahead of that I discuss Stanley Gibbons (SGI), Provexis (PXS), Fishing Republic (FISH), Inspirit (INSP) and have some more questions for Neil "nomates" Woodford.
I am livid about something not stockmarket related so the season of goodwill is cancelled in this house. On the agenda today: Earthport (EPO), Audioboom (CRAP), Minoan (MIN), Fishing Republic (TOAST), the quoted CFD providers, Telit (TCM) and Stanley Gibbons (SGI).
Well it is a bad day on two counts. Fisrt it is the disaster that has hit our village in Greece and its olive harvest, as I explain in a photo article HERE. Then it is events at Premaitha (NIPT), a share we own. I explain why I am not selling. I look at Stanley Gibbons (SGI) and then at FastForward (FFWD) where things really don't stack up and where there are far more questions than answers.
The recent history of Stanley Gibbons Group (SGI) together with a 12:15pm “Update” announcement don’t suggest good news… and the news is its Guernsey investment division has appointed administrators…
I’ve previously been wary of rare books and collectibles group Scholium (SCHO) – stating I await evidence of the company making better returns from its asset base. The share price has though recently been rising – today on the back of a “Trading update and establishment of stamp business” announcement…
Collectibles group Stanley Gibbons (SGI) has announced results for its year ended 31st March 2017 and a revised sale of a division. The shares have currently responded more than 13% lower towards 8p…
End December-announced half-year results from Stanley Gibbons (SGI) showed, after a net £3.3 million of ‘exceptionals’, a pre-tax loss of over £6 million and noted, with net debt at £16.5 million, it “working on a number” of balance sheet initiatives. In May it announced a £2.4 million sale of a major part of its Interiors division and, with this then delayed to 3rd August, we now have an “Update on Interiors Division” announcement…
Ha ha. We've been waiting for this for weeks, but now Slater & Gordon (who were given all the relevent ShareProphets articles when there was still time to back out) has actually filed suit against Watchstone, nee Quindell, claiming breach of warranty and/or fraudulent misrepresentation for a total amount of up to £637 million plus interest. It almost makes one want to root for Quindell this time.
Folks asked if I had learned any lessons from Stanley Gibbons (SGI), a dire share tip and a stock where I also did my conkers. I hope there are. In this last bearcast until I return in September (as discussed HERE) I look at the rationale for this tip and my errors.
On Friday some punters paid up to 13.5p for shares in Stanley Gibbons (SGI) after it claimed that it had received a bid approach. The shares are now c11.5p to sell after that was exposed as er...just not true.
This has been an awfu sharel tip and so, as a shareholder myself, I almost welcome an end to my suffering. I am sure the bidder is looking to pick up assets on the cheap and won't pay anything like a full price but at least the shares are up by 2.125p to 13.25p mid.
This has been a dog of a share tip from us but is there now a case for a small buy as a recovery play? Stanley Gibbons (SGI) has followed the recent sale of a major part of its Interiors division with an announcement of a £1.4 million sale of its interest in operator of the annual Masterpiece London art and antiques fair, Masterpiece London Ltd.
Stanley Gibbons (SGI) has announced it “has sold one of the rarest pieces of Indian Philately to a private collector-investor in Australia for £500,000, the highest price ever paid for a single Indian philatelic item”.
This is one of our worst share tips and also one of my (TW) worst investments of recent years. Collectibles group Stanley Gibbons (SGI) has announced further dire results - this time for the six months ended 30th September 2016 - though “is optimistic that the trading of the group is now beginning to reflect the giant strides made through the restructuring plan in a year of substantial transition” (including a completely new board of directors).
Only posters on the LSE Asylum get it right 100% of the time. That is why they are all millionaires but are so generous that they still share their wisdom with the rest of us. Steve & I don't always get it right. Since we launched the Nifty Fifty website almost four years ago our second worst tip has been Stanley Gibbons (SGI). Overall we are still c20% per tip up with an average holding period of less than a year. But this one has not helped our average.
I spent the morning at an ante natal class with the Mrs. Hell's teeth I am a feminist don't you know? But the whole experience left me feeling just rather old and I discuss why. Then it is onto today's ramptastic news from Horse Hill and I explain what it actually means. I waltz through Gulf Keystone (GKP) - bear squeeze - Stanley Gibbons (SGI) - recovery play? - and Guscio (GUSC) - Nigel Wray play. Then it is onto Tern (TERN), Gable (GAH), IGAS (IGAS) and Golden Saint (GSR) where I discuss why today's RNS really is just bollocks and how bulk sampling really works.
Results for the company’s year to 31st March 2016 see rare books, arts and collectibles group Scholium (SCHO) comment “we were pleased with the performance for the year. A significant loss has been reversed and many of our core markets stabilised”. However, the shares are currently approaching 11% lower on the day, at 32.5p, in response. Hmmm…
Investors in collectibles have had a tough time with stamp dealer Stanley Gibbons (SGI) in recent times, those shares down by 95% over the past 12 months. Rare book minnow Scholium (SCHO), on the other hand, is looking rather cheerful.
The first non-Tom story this week, way outside the top ten natch, is by Lucian Miers, representing the mysterious hedge fund billionaires/illuminati who fund ShareProphets with Can anyone help me get shares to borrow on UK Oil & Gas?. If you have some UKOG shares, please contact Lucian now, please don't take food out of his kid's mouths.
The sizzling rumours - MX Oil (MXO) and Moneyswap (SWAP). I start and finish with a favour to all of my younger or more IT minded listeners. If you can please action that today it would be fab, Then I move on to look at Gulfsands Petroleum (GPX), Nighthawk (HAWK), Stanley Gibbons SGI), Starcom (STAR) and, in some detail, Cambian (CMBN) - where I do hope you heeded my warning 141 days ago HERE.
Last year in ADVFN's financial services awards the share blogger of the year was Dan Levi, Brokerman Dan, aka the business partner of ADVFN head honcho Clem Chambers. Natch I was gutted not to win so what about this year. Shucks. The awards were announced this morning and once again I am not even mentioned. Double shucks.
We start with an apology - this has been an awful share tip. If only we were Wildes or Bulletin Board Morons and got every tip 100% right. But we are human. So apologise. Stanley Gibbons (SGI) has announced that it “now believes that for the year to 31 March 2016 the group will report an adjusted loss before tax of between £1 million and £2 million”, that it“is in the process of raising approximately £10 million of new equity” and the appointments of a new nominated adviser & broker (finnCap) and new auditor (BDO). Hmmm.
Thank you for your kind messages about my late cat Tara. Today I record with morbidly obese three legged Oakley listening and try to get him excited with an imaginary ffing dog. Actually it is the Chris Oil of cats. I explain. I also look at Stanley Gibbons (SGI), the London Stock Exchange (LSE) and the first placing into the Horse Hill ramp - Evocutis (EVO). Next will be - I predict - Solo (SOLO). I also look at ISDX lobster pots and David Lenigas lies ref Afriag (AFRI).
After today's twitter harassment from Yusuf Kajee of Afriag (AFRI) I was rather reminded of the Spitting Image classic below. But it's a lie. I had a good chat with Jan Nelson of Xtract (XTR) who is a nice South African and I offer a few thoughts on his company and explain why our podcast interview will be in a few days. The it is onto LGO Energy (TOAST) and Jabba The Hutt ramping, Stanley Gibbons (SGI), Premier Oil (PMO), Independent Oil & Gas (IOG) and the China frauds. I also mention the new vehicle of Andrew "piggy" Austin of IGAS Infamy which Nigel takes apart HERE. He is not a South African but should be.
About ten days ago, Stanley Gibbons (SGI) announced (piss poor) results for the six months ended 30th September 2015 and stated that “the board expects that the group will deliver materially higher revenue and profit in the second half of the financial year than in the first half, partially assisted by this year's auction calendar being more heavily weighted towards the second half”. So I've bought some shares for FIML at 99p.
A few folks seem to take exception to my exception to state sponsored extra judicial execution. Big Big brother really loves folks like flip flop Turney. Away from that I discuss the pros and cons of death spirals ( a reader request) and there are a few jokes at the expense of fat Aussie share ramper David Lenigas. I look at DCD Media (DCD), Caza Oil & Gas (TOAST), Nu-Oil & Gas (NUOG), Stanley Gibbons (SGI), Rurelec (RUR) and Oilex (OEX) and a few other bits and bobs
Daniel Dunkley of the Sunday Times business section is a tosser devoid of professional ethics. I explain why in this podcast and also why the deadwood press is a corrupt propaganda machine contribution to its own demographics driven demise. Then it is on to a session on value investing looking at Stanley Gibbons (SGI) and Surgical Innovations (SUN) with an en passant mention of today’s episode of Carry on up the Sefton (SER) thrown in.
I am not picking on Mariana Resources too much. Okay I am and did so HERE. But the point in this podcast is to show how the actions of Mariana in destroying shareholder value while the crony capitalists plunder and profit are just symptomatic of how AIM works as a whole. I also cover Stanley Gibbons (SGI), Paragon Entertainment (PEL), the scumbags at Mosman Oil & Gas (MSMN), Iofina (IOF), BTG (BTG) and Volex (VLX).
Stanley Gibbons (SGI) has updated that “it is currently uncertain whether high value sales completed by 30 September 2015 will be at the level required to achieve the group's internal budgets for the first half of the year” but that “the directors continue to believe that the group will achieve market forecasts for the full year ended 31 March 2016”
Yes I know that it has just had a profits warning and that the old adage is that warnings come in threes. But I do not expect that to be the case with Stanley Gibbons (SGI) and so it is my third share tip for Easter at 249p.
Stanley Gibbons (SGI) has disappointingly announced that “because a number of anticipated high value sales within the group's retail business were not completed in the run up to the (31st March) year end… it is expected that results will be materially below current market expectations”. The following updates with the shares now 8.5% lower in response at 241p-246p…
As I explained in my Christmas Day 10 macro themes for 2015 I generally cautious on UK equities – hence my decision to run with 5 buys and 5 sells in my NY selection (three more to come by Sunday night). As such my seventh tip is one you may deem cautious but I see 35% capital upside in it plus dividends and very limited downside. I refer to Stanley Gibbons (SGI), a buy at a 290p offer and at up to 300p with a target of 400p.
Stanley Gibbons (SGI) has announced results for its half year ended 30th September 2014 and that “the board look forward to the second half of the financial year with confidence”. Good News fr our readers at the Nifty Fifty but there is more to come!
Stanley Gibbons (SGI) has announced a recommended £8.6 million (60p per share) cash offer for Mallett plc (MAE) - one of the oldest established antique dealers in the world, specialising in furniture and works of art and with interests also in restoration. Gibbons sees the move as “furthering its ambition to become a global auction house for collectibles” and considers it “a logical and affordable next step for us to acquire a valuable brand and relevant assets. The Mallett business will expand Stanley Gibbons's expertise into an adjacent collectibles area, drive significant cross-selling opportunities across the combined businesses and build a stronger auction platform in the collectibles marketplace”.
Stanley Gibbons (SGI) has announced it has exchanged contracts on a £4.5 million sale of its freehold property at Adelphi Terrace in London, with completion scheduled on or before 17th November. The company added that by this time all of its specialist collectibles trading and auctions divisions will be co-located at its Strand premises.
We tipped Stanley Gibbons (SGI) at a 225p offer price on the Nifty Fifty and with the shares now at 310p we are – dividends included more than 40% ahead but following yesterday’s AGM statement we still see material upside in the shares.
I tipped Stanley Gibbons (SGI) at 225p back in November 2012 on my Nifty Fifty Website. We have picked up a 3% yield along the way and the shares closed Friday at 290p. So not a bad share tip so far. But there is a long way to go. The stock is still a buy.
