In what has been the longest running bull market that I can remember, in which stocks have risen, pretty much in a straight line for over nine years, it has been hard for bears to witness the benign tolerance with which evidently flaky and fraudulent companies are treated by the investing community. In these times patience is required, and it is worthwhile preparing a watchlist of names that are likely to be the most vulnerable when the market finally rolls over. While this list should comprise for the most part those with over-leveraged balance sheets and questionable accounting practices, solid companies should not be discounted out of hand.

The beverage/retail sector isn’t one which I normally watch that closely in general, but there is one small AIM listed outfit called Distil (DIS) shares in which I have been following for a while now.

This is interesting. Are the glory days of Fevertree (FEVR) behind it? Is it time to call the top? This is the bear case as presented by a leading broker today. It is an interesting read...

Whilst it is true that a lot of the small companies listed on AIM are total junk, there are also some gems amongst them, and I think that Distil (DIS) falls into that category. I first came across this company at the UK Investor Show a couple of years back and it has performed extremely well since I first covered it as a buy here at around 0.8p - the share price is currently nearly 350% higher than it was back then.

Hello Share Pickers. Whenever I consider tonic water, I always think of, well, you know who. But they're not the only people to make this vital addition to a small gin.

Investment Case: Formerly Blavod Wines & Spirits, this is a company which has been around for ages but has thus far failed to deliver. However, having joined the board as a non-executive in 2010, Don Goulding - previously a senior executive and lastly UK Managing Director at industry giant Diageo - took the full reins in late 2011 and has led the company to exit distribution for third parties to focus on developing owned brands. Although not yet reflected in the financial results, this looks a move of some promise and the shares at a 0.8p offer price, capitalising the company at sub £3.5 million, are a buy.

Generally I tend to stay away from the really tiny AIM shares, but recently one has caught my eye that I think has potential. Unlike many of the popular ones with a market cap of sub-£10 million, this isn’t some oil or mining company promising the earth with some old license no one else wants, or an investment shell company.
