An apology if I ever suggested that Mr David Lenigas was a shameless ramper of penny shares and not Britain's leading analyst of resource stocks

And I mean this most sincerely folks….my view is not coloured in the slightest by the fact that I, like Lenigas, own far too many shares in Wishbone Gold (WSBN). What follows below is one of many tweets sent out by Mr Lenigas this morning after Wishbone’s latest RNS demonstrating that any suggestion that he is a penny share ramping huckster is so wide of the mark. Big Dave is quite obviously the most talented objective analyst of fundamental value in small mining plays. Yes indeedy.

A Covid Boom In Private Trading Could Help Your Penny Shares, but You Might Need to Hover over the Sell Button.

Hello, Share Fanciers. There aren’t many consolations for the pandemic on the financial front. Ok some shares have done better than others. But the Footsie is down least 12% on pre-covid days and it should have risen by 20% given the bull run which was underway just before that. However there’s better news for owners of many penny shares.

Perhaps it Pays to Be Dippy in the Current Bull Market

Hello Share Swivellers. One of the more sensible pieces of advice in the crazy shares game is ‘sell the peaks and buy the dips.’ It’s also the hardest action to get right. Will the dip fall even more or will the peak become higher?

The Usual Agonising Dilemma Sets In as a Losing Penny Share Suddenly Takes off

Hello, Share Players. This modest article is out of the ordinary. Lately, I’ve been featuring companies I think stand to benefit from the covid shadow or which should recover faster than most after a nasty year. Today I feature a share which has given me a few worries, but which has suddenly taken off…

Another heartfelt apology to Mr David Lenigas

If I have ever given the impression that Mr David Lenigas, aka Big Dave, is a shameless ramper and promoter of penny shares, I would like to apologise most sincerely. As a fellow shareholder In Wishbone Gold (WSBN), I note the tweet below and it must now be clear to all that Mr Lenigas is the most thoughtful, balanced and objective analyst of gold stocks here in London and, as the late great father of the late Paula Yates used to say, “I mean that most sincerely.” Mind you, on this occasion, Mr Lenigas might actually be right.

Now then, What's the Best Strategy for Making Money from Shares in the Election Run-up?

Hello, share Bakers. You have to congratulate television’s political reporters. They always find new and ingenious ways of saying they haven't a clue what’ll happen next on the Brexit front. In my days as a telly reporter, I would have made strenuous efforts to find out the most likely course of events. But that was a long time ago and I didn't have such a forbidding workload - tweeting and contributing to the BBC website, etc.

Share Portfolio Tumbling? Perhaps Not, if You Do Penny Stocks.

Hello, Share Swipers. If your shares are toppling backwards at the moment, you may have the balance wrong between big cap companies and penny stocks. My portfolio is probably split 50-50, with very few firms in the boring middle range. Off course, its the Footsie giants which are most affected by the general slide. Then penny shares, as usual, are going their own way, be it up or down.

The Best Lesson in Share Trading that You Will ever Learn?

Hello Share Trustees. The Footsie was around 7,800 in the summer. It’s now between 7,100 and 7,200. On paper, most of us have lost big money. Though if you are using this wondrous website you will, like me, have a few penny shares in your bag. And if your choice was anything like mine then you may have had some big successes in this shaky period for the Footsie giants.

I Bag a 5-Bagger, But Where Have My Flipping Shares Gone?

Hello, Share Dabblers. As I’m a slave to security, I took fast action when one of my brokers Beaufort went belly up. I did not want to be in the situation where I held more cash and shares with any broker above that unfair £50,000 compensation limit set by the FCA. So I swapped many of my shares into different brokers. But I had a heart-stopping moment with news from Communisis (CMS), a share I’ve long commended on this delicious website.

Should Wide Spreads Make You Delay Selling? Aye, There's the Rub

Hello, Share Scrapers. Let’s air a few thoughts on the vexed question of the difference between selling or buying shares and the average price we see on our screens - the spread. The width of some spreads can put us off selling at a time we really want to sell - and that’s a dangerous choice to face.

Three Penny Shares I Have High Hopes For

Hello, Share Peekers. Like some of mine, your shares are probably making some real money in this continuing bull market. But will it keep going? My own view is that it will, bolstered by the fabled Santa Rally. But watch out for the New Year Party hang-over. And even then, selected penny shares will keep on rising, as they often do when the Footsie carnival falters. Here then are some of my favourite small cap jewels, one of which has already boosted my bank balance big time. And I believe that it, and the other two selections, have further value waiting in the wings.

How to Make Hay when an Over-Hyped Share Keeps on Rising

WH Ireland Stockbroker John Molyneux explains discretionary broking to Mr Bagot – new picture emerges

Scumbag brokers WH Ireland (WHI) hosted a table at last night’s black tie AIM awards.

So I have written to Business Secretary Sajid Javid asking him to intervene urgently.

The Sensible Way to Deal in Leaping Penny Shares.

Hello Share Scratchers. As the Footsie is blighted at the mo by the Greek tragedy, it’s right that we should turn our attention to penny shares. These blighters, as we all know, can turn into multi-baggers whereas Footsie gains can’t. They can however sink without trace a lot more easily, because their valuations are so near the floor anyway.

How Many Eggs?

As well as choosing different sectors of the market in which to buy your shares, really prudent investors scatter their funds over a large number of companies. If you rely on just four enterprises and one collapses, then it's serious. If you have 20 share certificates with different names at the top, big losses posted by two or three companies won't send you looking for an outside ledge on a tall building. Some brokers urge their clients to buy an interest in just 10 businesses. They argue that this is a nice manageable group and that it's hard to keep track of any more.

Penny Shares – Penny Dreadfuls?

Beginners think these are equities priced at one penny each. That’s been known. But it simply means a cheap share, priced at less than 80p. They usually belong to companies which have skated on thin ice and haven't yet found a ladder to escape the pond. Some analysts scathingly refer to them as 'penny dreadfuls’.

Why Most Penny Shares Don't Deserve Loyalty

Hello Share Seekers: I'm off to a birthday party in the Smoke to meet people I've not seen for 20 years. Wonder what they look like now? Lots of bald patches and less-than-trim figures I should imagine. A bit like shares you've held a long time, lots of unattractive changes can take over the year. I will be a lot gladder to see my old colleagues than be reminded of shares which have let me down over the years – and most of these bad memories are penny shares I kept too long.
