This week’s strategy update from Bluebird Merchant Ventures (BMV) reminded me that I meant to go searching for its interims as it had done that really annoying thing that rubbish companies do in not actually putting the interims in the RNS, but merely putting a link to the website and then it isn’t actually on the website till later. Having finally tracked them down, I now realise why the company wanted to hide them away as they make horrific reading.

We now have evidence that some of those who invested in Bluebird (BMV) at the IPO are ignoring lock-ins. That is seeing the shares slip when they should be racing on more good news.
