Okay we own a stack of Reach4Entertainment (R4E) shares so I am biased. Dowgate is house broker so it is too. But the thesis is solid and if anything I regard the target price as far too low. So with all those caveats, here is the broker's note.

Until recently analyst Paul Richards was at Numis and was the City's Now 1 rated media analyst. Now he is at Dowgate and has just published a detailed note on Reach4Entertainment (R4E) after its placing and acquisition today. He reckons the shares should almost double from 1.29p to 2.4p. I own the shares and think his forecasts are light and thus so is the target price. Judge for yourself, the note is in full below.

I start with why this bearcast is late. I got back very late from London where I was watching my daughter play Harold Wilson in Made in Dagenham and she was brilliant. So too was the musical. Well done Olaf although you are wrong about the gender pay gap! I look at the market bounce and the shit that is leading it. I look in real detail at the trading statement at Reach4Entertainment (R4E) where I am a shareholder, at Woodford dog RM2 (RM2) which is going on a one way trip to the vets in a fortnight and also at Woodford Patient Capital Trust (WPCT). Post bearcast it announced its NAV at 85.93p which means gearing must surely be through the 20% barrier. I also look at Optibiotix (OPTI) and the warrant exercise issue.

The publicity hungry, failing, fund manager Neil Woodford is all over the papers. On the markets he's right ( and bearish) but when discussing his own (failing) funds he is talking utter bollocks and I explain why. Brokerman Dan (Levi) has formed a shareholder action group on Ascent Resources (AST). I discuss his case against them and make a few suggestions to the company. I comment on R4E (R4E) on the disgraceful behaviour of Pathfinder Minerals (PFP), look at RM2 (RM2) and then finally at Sabien (SNT) which look either to be on the brink of a last gasp fundraise ( at a more than 99% discount to the IPO price) or of insolvency. In the same breath I mention Inspirit (INSP), another AIM boiler room dog that should be shot.
