Despite a big drop in share price Greatland Gold still looks expensive

Published 8 days ago

Investors who believed all the hype surrounding Greatland Gold (GGP) received a nasty shock this week when the share price collapsed, but for many of us who have been around the market for a while it didn’t really come as much of a surprise.

When gold bounces Centamin will shine

Gold has been very difficult to read lately, with a lot of the swings making very little sense in the context of the events that have been driving them.

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.

Eco Atlantic should reignite PI interest in large exploration drills

Back in 2010 it seemed that barely a week would go by without some tiny AIM oil explorer drilling a well that could potentially make or break the company, but these days much of that excitement seems to have disappeared.

Canadian Overseas could be worth the gamble - but only if financing is secured

Published 127 days ago

Canadian Overseas Petroleum (COPL) is a company that I have followed for a while now and recently I have noticed it getting a fair bit of attention again – certainly as much as we’ve seen since the failed drill in Liberia back in late 2016.

The future looks bleak for Ferrum Crescent - another placing isn't far from being needed!

Published 128 days ago

The lower end of the AIM market can be surprisingly predictable at times, especially when it comes to raising funds, so it often amazes me how many private investors get caught out when such news comes. That would certainly seem to have been the case with the recent fundraising activity at Ferrum Crescent (FCR) and the events leading up to that, even if many on the bulletin boards were in denial of what was coming.

Ferrum Crescent - still burning through cash and achieving little of note!

With any AIM listed natural resources company it is always interesting to look at where the company is at this point in time when compared to the accumulated losses of the business since it started.

Sometimes geographical location can be enough to put off investors, but in a lot of cases that is unjustified and means that companies operating in these areas can represent good value for money.

Central Asia Metals looks a great longer term investment in copper

Published 187 days ago

On the AIM market these days it seems as though many would far rather buy into the latest pump and dump on a piece of junk, than invest in a company that is actually running its business properly and making money. The problem with putting your money into junk is that at some point true value normally shines through and the resultant share price crashes can be spectacular.

If all else fails - buy a lithium licence! The "business plan" for AIM joke Arian Silver

When a tiny AIM company suddenly becomes popular all over Twitter and the bulletin boards, and without any real news to justify that sudden attention, then you have to question why it is happening.

Hello Share Swabbers. I’ve held Tullow Oil (TLW) shares for as long as I can remember. At one stage they were up 120%. Nowadays I’m down by 50%. Like all the other big oil producers the share price has been attacked by the falling value of Brent crude. But Tullow seems to have suffered more than most.

Ariana remains a buy after resource update

Published 265 days ago

I recently wrote a piece HERE expressing my surprise that the share price of Ariana Resources (AAU) had failed to react positively to good news, so it probably shouldn’t have come as a surprise that a decent update on its resource actually resulted in the share price closing slightly lower.

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!

Published 428 days ago

Hello Share Shufflers. Though I hold quite a few mid-size oil companies, I do not have a stake in Premier Oil (PMO). Perhaps I should, though. The company has been in final stages of financing with banks and bond holders. That signals that the big lenders have faith in the company.

It's time to buy Randgold Resources for a continued gold bull run

Premier Oil - Holed Below the Waterline? (Part 2)

Published 584 days ago

Yesterday in Part 1, I outlined the gravity of the situation facing Premier Oil’s (PMO) equity investors. In that piece, I presented my view that the purchase of E.ON’s North Sea assets was an attempt to temporarily fix a covenant breach situation, but that any profits it generates are unlikely to be material against Premier’s debt pile.

Premier Oil - Holed Below the Waterline? (Part 1)

Published 585 days ago

Anyone lucky enough to buy independent exploration and production company Premier Oil (PMO) around the January lows achieved a two-bagger in quick time as the shares rallied rapidly from around 20p to achieve a high of 75p last month. It is currently capitalised at £360 million ($500 million) and is a favourite on the bulletin boards. Sadly, it’s not yet clear that Premier has its house in order. There could be some serious pain yet to come.

Canadian Overseas will attract plenty of interest later this year - now is the time to buy

Many private investors love a bit of a gamble on a big exploration oil drill and there is always plenty of hype surrounding them, but over the past year or so very few have taken place, certainly compared to previous years anyway.

88 Energy has the potential for a large rise

Any of you who like to have a gamble on oil exploration drills should take a look at 88 Energy (88E). The AIM-listed oil explorer is about to kick off a drilling campaign in Alaska at its Project Icewine licence, and it is potentially one of the biggest exploration drills of the year, given the size of resource that it is targeting.

I update in the following having last month concluded, at 53p, that the shares looked to have some speculative appeal.

Antrim Energy looks a decent gamble

Published 1241 days ago

Buying a share that has spiked on hype is rarely a good idea, especially when the level of hype is unjustified, and that certainly applied to Antrim Energy (AEY). When the UK based company, which is listed on AIM and the TSX, announced the result of a prospective resources report of its 25% owned Skellig block offshore Ireland, you’d have been forgiven for thinking that they’d actually struck oil the way the share price spiked and from all the hype on the bulletin boards!

Borders and Southern (BOR) are the only Falkland Islands oil company to have drilled that doesn’t yet have a farm-out partner. But all that could be about to change imminently, if there is any truth in the rumours currently doing the rounds. The company itself has stated that the farm-out process has already been started, so it should be a matter of when, not if.
