As long as there is nothing fundamentally wrong with the company itself, then with any leveraged play on commodity prices, which is basically what many producers are, the time to be buying is when the price of the underlying commodity is near the bottom of a cycle. It is usually hard to judge exactly where the bottom is going to be but, when it comes to platinum, I think we are nearing that area.

A 10:15am “Trading Update” announcement from restaurant group Comptoir (COM), which IPO’d at 50p per share on AIM less than a year ago. An unusual time for a trading update + a restaurant group, with all the pressures facing that sector currently = I think I can guess much of how the announcement is going to go…

Orosur Mining (OMI) certainly isn’t amongst the more popular resource stocks on AIM and trading volumes are often verging on non-existent, but I believe that many are missing an opportunity here as they go chasing rainbows with companies that are years away from production, assuming they ever actually get to that stage!

Digital Barriers (DGB) has been like so many other AIM companies, in that it has promised a lot but has failed to deliver in the way that investors expected it to, and it now looks like the last chance for the company to live up to expectations.

Chariot Oil and Gas (CHAR) has begun to get my attention again recently as it has plenty going on operationally during the next year or so, and could well become a popular share to be in once again.

Lonmin PLC (LMI) was one of my best performing share tips during 2016, and following the recent pullback I think it is well worth another look.

If it wasn’t for the fact that ordinary PIs will have lost a lot of money, the announcements and share price movements in Fitbug Holdings (FITB) over the last couple of days would almost be comical!

I just ask a simple question about AIM-listed CloudTag (CTAG) and this pesky financing deal with L1 involving convertible loan notes and associated conversion warrants. Something caught my eye in yesterday’s RNSs from the company, in which it announced yet another loan conversion – and the first (I expect of a great many) warrant exercises by L1.

Hello Share Spaders. Recently, I opined on this superlative website that BT had been over-sold in the last 12 months and was possibly cruising for a new target of 500p a throw, rather than the present sad sub-400p share price. But I’m not so confident over its rival Vodafone (VOD).

“fastjet (FJET), the low-cost African airline, is pleased to announce that… it has successfully placed 143,449,794 new ordinary shares at a price of 16.3 pence per share… If the placing does not proceed and complete, and in the absence of the group being able to successfully agree or implement any alternative funding, the directors would seek to commence a process of placing the group into administration”. Wait a minute, just in August the company raised “total aggregate gross proceeds of £15.2 million… all at 50 pence per new ordinary share”. What’s gone on?

Sports nutrition company Science in Sport (SIS) has made a “Pre-Close Trading Update” announcement commencing that “sales increased 30% to £12.24 million in the 12 months to 31 December 2016”. Sounds promising, what about profitability?…

After last week’s “cleansing” RNS which saw the previous suspension finally lifted, you would have thought that there were no further little surprises to come from AIM-listed CloudTag (CTAG). So imagine my surprise at reading yesterday’s RNS announcing the drawdown of the latest lump of cash from L1: just where did £50,000 of expenses come from?

Orosur Mining (OMI) remains one of my favourites amongst the small gold miners listed on AIM, and I now hold shares in the company myself, hopefully awaiting a turnaround in the price of gold.

On the back of an August AGM Statement from Castings (CGS) with the shares at circa 428p, I noted there looking an increased risk of short-term share price pain. The following updates on the back of the company’s Half-year Report, with the shares currently sub 400p…

The farce continues apace with AIM-listed Malaysia and China play Galasys (GLS). This morning we were served up with a rum’n’coke for breakfast in the form of a trading statement. On the one hand there was plenty of blather about numerous and significant new contracts being won, but on the other there are ongoing legal actions in the UK, Jersey and Malaysia to sort out who actually runs the company and we are warned that the costs could put a big dent in the bottom line.

I indicated in part 1 of my results analysis that there were a few bits and bobs in the Tern (TERN) Annual Report which had not made in into the RNS version of the FY15 results. Often it pays, when studying a company’s numbers, to begin with the notes to the accounts and then work backwards from there. And so here are a few things which caught my eye.
