Falanx - full year numbers not entirely impressive, but...

Published 277 days ago

Cynics will say that Falanx (FLX) delayed its results until August so that it could sugar the pill of not exactly sparkling numbers for the year to March 31 2018 with news that it achieved EBITDA profitability in July. Perhaps there is another reason. Certainly, no-one could describe what has been served up as sparkling and we shareholders will only be hitting the ouzo to dull the pain not to celebrate. The shares are down by 14% to 4.15p-4.4p, valuing the company at £11.1 million at mid. Is that an over-reaction?

Falanx – another itty bitty acquisition don’t impress me or Shania much ...but

Published 304 days ago

The management of Falanx (FLX) are nice guys but do themselves no favours. Issuing, albeit small amounts, of shares at rock bottom process for small itty bitty acquisitions is rarely a strategy that is value accretive.

Doing a major placing at 4.5p when not long before your shares were 9p really f**ks off we loyal shareholders. Suffice to say, the statement accompanying those results in a couple of week’s time is going to have to be pretty hot.

Paternoster GM Notice - market has this very wrong

Published 360 days ago

The first thing to note is that the NAV of Paternoster Resources (PRS) was 0.172p per share and that was 94% in cash and listed investments. One of the larger stakes was in I3 Energy (I3E), shares in which have rocketed in recent weeks - almost certainly unjustifiably but that is life.

There is now a placing and at the same time we were told that this order would now be booked in Q4 2017. Surely that unwinds the profits warning.

Published 724 days ago

Four times in the past three or four months we have advised our readers to bank big gains on shares we tipped - the one before the one before last was a 77% profit (offer to bid ) in just 12 days. But though we target quick gains, most tips take rather longer to make money for our readers. take Falanx (FLX) we tipped it last year at a 4.75p offer - it is a solid cashed up fast growing cyber security play. We like it so much we own a few shares too but won't be selling any of them till after our readers bank big gains. The shares are now 9.5p -10p! That is a potential 100% offer to bid profit!

Minoan – still waiting for notice of legal clearance, short-term trading opportunity or avoid?

Published 735 days ago

AIM-listed wannabe holiday resort developer Minoan (MIN) has tested the patience of even the most saintly of saints for years and years. It has a plan to build a resort in northern Crete which has been going through Greek permitting and legal processes which make our own UK planning environment look as nimble as an Olympic gymnast. Of course, the misery has been about to come to an end for years, but perhaps now the green light really is imminent. Is it worth a punt?

Published 800 days ago

Certain folks wonder why we, on HotStockRockets, we tipped shares in LGO Energy (LGO) as a buy?

We wish life was that easy. Yes our last tip was a winner - it was the infamous New World Oil & Gas - we got in and out at the right time and made a killing for our readers. It happens now and again in the world of penny shares. Even we did not think that tip would work out quite as well - our targetted gain was just 50%!

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast - 29th May

Published 1452 days ago

In today's bearcast I can't help but look back as the Evil Empire's 2014 accounts come to light. Then I move on to a few other favourites Quindell ( vindicated), Coms (vindicated) and Sefton (vindicated). A hat-trick of wins on a day when I deposited cash in a Greek Bank. More on that later.


Vela – Broker Note Vicarage Capital

Published 1471 days ago

Vela (VELA) is a stock that we have tipped on HotStockRockets and it looks an interesting play. The shares are 0.2p and I reckon that NAV could well be in excess of 0.5p. Of course most of investments are illiquid private companies so the shares will always trade at a discount to NAV but the current discount seems excessive.

Like all small gold explorers Ariana Resources (AAU) has been a complete dog of an investment but at 0.95p to buy we think it will bounce and is a very attractive trade. And there are three reasons why.

Buy Vela Technologies

Published 1508 days ago

At the bottom end of AIM there are a raft of investment companies most of which are absolute POS lifestyle companies. It is all too easy to write the lot off as vehicles to allow useless directors and City parasites to milk the gravy train, if that is not mixing metaphors. But there is the odd nugget of value and that brings us to this month’s share tip of the month, Vela Technologies (VELA).

HotStockRockets share tip of the year No 2 – Insetco

Published 1599 days ago

This is our most recent share tip for paying subscribers and although up on that tip it is still a buy and is our second tip of the year. Insetco (INC) has been one of those horrid little stocks that curse the bottom end of AIM. Always promising jam tomorrow, always raising money and never delivering. However over the past six months it has gained a new management team, sorted out its balance sheet, started to win big business and it could well be THE recovery play of 2015. It is our second tip of the year at a 0.17p offer with an initial target price to sell of 0.32p.
