Afentra – proposed acquisitions excitement sparks shares, take 90% profits?

There is no "house view" on this website. Our authors can and do disagree. For instance, I think Malcolm's piece today is complete and utter bollocks and will explain why later on bearcast. Last week Gary was bullish on Afentra (AET), HERE. But there is another view.

Tullow Followers could Benefit from the Planned Merger and Perkier Production

Hello Share Scrapers. This old punter once nearly sold his Tullow Oil (TLW) shares by mistake. The price then was around £6, so I wish I had done. That’s because today’s price is around 54p. Never mind, it was a long time ago. And I think the huge rise in the oil price hasn’t galvanised Tullow’s share price as much as it should have done. Mayhap it has some catching up to do. Also, Tullow looks like becoming bigger as it plans to merge with Capricorn Energy (CNE), formerly Cairn Energy, a British explorer and producer of oil and gas.

I think that Capricorn Energy shareholders are getting a bad deal from this merger with Tullow - Sell

I’ve been a fan of Capricorn Energy (CNE), formerly Cairn, for some time now and my investment there has done pretty well, but I probably won’t be holding for much longer now that it has announced a merger with Tullow Oil (TLW).

Rushing to Snaffle Oil and Gas Shares? Don't Forget to eyeball Tullow

Hello, Share Tweakers. You don’t have to be an Einstein to guess that share prices for oil companies should keep on rising, at least for a bit.

Why Shell and BP Shares Aren't Surging Is a Mystery to me. But You Might Want to Invest in Case the Dam Bursts

Lofty Oil Price Hasn't Galvanised the Share Prices of Big Boys of the Black Stuff - But that Could Change Soon

Hello, Share Folks. As I write, the oil price has reached the giddy height of $75 a barrel. Last November it was only about $20. The current high level is a main cause of inflation in Blighty. And inflation is the enemy of share prices everywhere. However, there is one sector which benefits most from a lofty oil price. And that of course is the one comprising big oil producers like BP (BP.) and Royal Dutch Shell (RDSA). So why have the share values of these giants only been treading water for the last few months?

With a new team in place, Afentra is a buy

When an AIM company changes its name it can often be to try and hide a dodgy past, generally where it has raised money consistently from shareholders but failed to actually deliver anything, but there are also times when it can signal a change to the business and a move in the right direction.

As an investor, doing nothing is generally under-rated (but sometimes the facts have changed)...

The oil price tanking - for reasons I explained at the weekend HERE - and shares tumbling across the board on concerns as to what damage the Coronavirus is doing, and will do, to the real economy and thus to corporate earnings. Generally, my view is that doing nothing as an investor is something that is greatly under-rated. It is perhaps better to wait until the smoke clears. Having said that, sometimes we need to accept that facts have changed and that does fundamentally alter an investment thesis...

Time to build a position in Tullow Oil

The oil price is on its knees, but I think we’re very close to being at a stage where its time to start buying oil producers for the longer term.

Reduced hedging to cause more pain for oil producers

Oil producers have had a terrible year, but I think there could be more of the same to come and we will see some more casualties. Unfortunately oil is one of my favourite sectors and it has performed abysmally over the past 12 months or so, thanks to the crash in oil prices, with WTI currently sitting at around the $40 area, and Brent at circa $43.

ShareProphets Exclusive; Interview with Chariot Oil & Gas CEO Larry Bottomley Part 1 – Namibian Central Block Licence

A month ago, I wrote a critical piece about Chariot Oil & Gas (CHAR) in reaction to its £8.8million placement. The company has responded perfectly. It didn’t petulantly jump up and down, demanding a retraction, but instead approached me, asking if I’d like to talk directly with CEO Larry Bottomley. I thought this was a risky move on Chariot’s part, as our reputation here for not taking prisoners is well deserved. However, the request was courteous and seemed genuine. I was happy to take the call on the understanding everything we discussed would be on the record and I wouldn’t write a PR puff piece. Chariot agreed and Mr Bottomley was refreshingly candid in his answers. In this first piece I deal with the looming deadline for the company’s Central Block licence, offshore Namibia.
