Will things be different this time around at Westminster Group?

Published 2 days ago

Westminster Group (WSG) is a company which I once had high hopes for, but in the past it has always been one which has promised the earth but has failed to deliver much of any real substance.

Canadian Overseas is going to run out of money again soon - avoid

Published 22 days ago

Canadian Overseas Petroleum (COPL) is a company which I have been pretty negative on in recent times, and certainly nothing has happened to change my view on it, certainly in the shorter term.

SOCO International share price decline could be close to a reversal

Published 77 days ago

As an investor who has always been a big fan of oil and gas plays in general it is difficult not to focus on that particular sector at the moment, given the recovery that we have been seeing there. Some people may argue that the move has already happened and that oil prices might not go much above the $64 level that we have hit this week, and could well finish the year a fair bit lower – certainly somewhere in the high 50s wouldn’t surprise me, although a lot will revolve around the outcome of the OPEC meeting at the end of the month. Whilst that may be the case with the commodity itself, when it comes to equities many have lagged this commodity correction, and given the share price action of some of them, you could be forgiven for thinking that oil was still down in the doldrums and completely unloved.

Why I'm happy with the Central Asia Metals acquisition

Published 119 days ago

If I’m being completely honest then I have to admit that I was somewhat annoyed when an RNS from Central Asia Metals (CAML) initially landed to say that trading in the shares had been temporarily suspended pending the acquisition of a large asset. That annoyance though was largely driven by a shorter term view, as shares in the company had been doing very well and the price was increasing steadily in the run up to the financial results, which were expected to be good and with yet another high yielding dividend to be paid. Alongside that copper was flying and had just topped the $3.10/lb level.

Growth rates are failing to support the Gfinity market valuation

Published 149 days ago

Unfortunately a lot of early stage media and technology companies can look to have huge potential but then fail to really live up to expectations, and I think that has definitely been the case with Gfinity (GFIN).

Central Asia Metals is probably the most under-valued commodity play on the market!

There are times when a large background seller can present a good buying opportunity, and an institutional investor offloading shares isn’t always a sign that the company is failing to perform.

Ariana – gold price, production news and share price

Published 164 days ago

After my mea culpa of June 20th we have had further news. It has taken a bit of time to digest, but overall it looks positive to me, if rather laced with jam-tomorrow. With the share price finally off its low point of just 1.25p, let’s look through the detail.

Kaz Minerals offers a buying opportunity on this dip

Published 164 days ago

Kaz Minerals (KAZ) is a great example of the extent that commodity prices can effect larger miners, and the recovery in copper prices has seen the share price trading at multiples of where it was just 18 months ago.

Sylvania continues to deliver a strong performance - buy for the longer term

Published 177 days ago

Sylvania Platinum (SLP) is a company which I’ve followed for quite some time and hold shares in myself - and I view today’s unexpected acquisition news as being positive for the company moving forwards.

Sylvania Platinum looks to offer great long term value

Published 221 days ago

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.

Comptoir Group – less than a year after IPO on AIM… a profit warning…

Published 233 days ago

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 looks under-valued as gold shows continued strength

Published 280 days ago

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!

Could Digital Barriers be on the verge of turning things around?

Published 303 days ago

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.

Is it worth giving Chariot another chance?

Published 311 days ago

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 offers a leveraged play on platinum prices

Published 325 days ago

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.

Fitbug's latest update must be a joke surely?

Published 369 days ago

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!

CloudTag – are there fees/costs we don’t know about ref. L1 warrants?

Published 371 days ago

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.

Growing Competition May Curb Vodafone Shares from Ringing

Published 371 days ago

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 – 5 months after the last, it’s bailout fundraising AGAIN!

Published 383 days ago

“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?

Science in Sport – a “trading update” which omits to update on the bottom-line impact of trading!

Published 384 days ago

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?…

CloudTag – draws first half of Tranche 2, but where did £50k expenses come from?

Published 400 days ago

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?

New mine coming online should give Orosur a boost

Published 408 days ago

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.

Castings – half-year results show profit hit, to get hit further?

Published 439 days ago

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…

Nature Group – “pleased to announce” results as shares slide on another ludicrous statement…

Published 483 days ago

Following an absolutely ludicrous results statement previously, Nature Group (NGR) is “pleased to announce the unaudited interim results for the six months to 30 June 2016”. The shares are currently approaching 8% lower, at 4.375p, in response. Is the company at it again? …

Galasys – trading update warns of possible material profit miss whilst it sorts out who its directors are

Published 720 days ago

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.

Tern – FY Results part 2, what’s in the Annual Report but not in the Results RNS?

Published 724 days ago

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.
