Published 116 days ago

Hello, Share Samplers. Online shopping is likely to grow even faster in the future than it has in the recent past. A company well placed to take more than an average advantage of this fact is Ocado (OCDO). And that’s because this retailer has a super duper system for fulfilling orders that other companies will also want to use - at a price.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Ocado can you smell burning bear paw?

Published 341 days ago

I suspect that Ocado (OCDO) is even more overvalued after today's share price surge on the Kroger deal - it goes to show the dangers of shorting anything other than an outright fraud in the current climate. I look at the FOBT news - Nanny State gets more and more bossy every day. I look also at Mothercare (MTC), Foxtons (FOXT) and WH Ireland (WHI)

Tom Winnifritb Bearcast: lessons from Carillion, 88 Energy, MySQUAR and the faux political correctness of my father exposed

Published 652 days ago

Here I am in Shipston with my father who enjoys bearcasts if they mention him so just for that reason I record again. His faux political correctness is exposed by the issue of coverage of women's cricket in The Guardian - the dreadful newspaper he has delivered to try to fool my family of public sector "working" lefties that he is one of them. In terms of the market I look at Carillion (CLLN) and 88 Energy (88E). Shares in both companies are collapsing today and I look at why and at what lessons folks should be learning. You could so easily have avoided losing money on both. Please note Malcolm Stacey and other Ocado (OCDO) bulls, lesson one on Carillion is for you. I also make it clear that while he may have some of the attributes of a Bulletin Board Moron as he showed HERE, Evil Knievil is not, in fact, a BBM, I was just joshing him when I suggested otherwise. En passant I look at MySquar (MYSQ) and explain why today's exposes HERE and HERE may refer to events a long time ago but are pertinent. 

How About Ocado - if You Think On-line Shopping is Set to Get Even Stronger?

Published 655 days ago

Hello Share Smoothers. Ocado (OCDO) is one of those annoying companies which does not give you a clue as to what it does by its name. It is in fact an online supermarket. And it should have been called something like ‘The On-Line Supermarket.’ Never mind. Silly names is just one of my personal irritants in the share picking game.

Sell the Ocado Rally at 300p

Published 669 days ago

Until recently the stock market has been very kind to Ocado (OCDO), with the shares in May rising from 250p to nearly 320p valuing the enterprise at north of £2 billion. The company has though never remotely justified its market cap on fundamentals and has therefore needed to tease investors with hints of a huge, game-changing, deal.

Still no news on Tom Jnr but I shall keep you posted. Actually the Mrs has banned the name Tom and is on a bit of a roll for cot related reasons. On the markets I look at Avanti Communications (AVN), Ocado (OCDO) and in detail Corero (CNS) and Tyratech (TYR) and cannot resist a smug mention of Wishbone Gold (WSBN) after my weekend comment HERE.

It is ironic that its “real” counterparts have struggled to prove themselves to the market, while with difficulty even turning a profit online grocer Ocado has been one of the more resilient plays at least in share price terms.
