Jubilee Platinum continues to make progress: BUY

Published 38 days ago

Shares in Jubilee Platinum (JLP) have taken a bit of a battering in recent months, but I can still see plenty of upside here on any sort of positive reversal in platinum prices, and it is also worth remembering that other platinum group metals have been more robust.

The People's Operator burns through cash at an astonishing rate

Published 54 days ago

The People’s Operator (TPOP) was once a favourite with private investors but its share price has taken a tumble since the latter part of 2016. However, I believe that it is still well over-priced at its current level.

Distil has been a fantastic investment but it may be time to take some profit

Published 74 days ago

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.

Fishing Republic: Impressive growth but still looks expensive

Published 90 days ago

Fishing Republic (FISH) is a company that I have been keeping a close eye on ever since it first listed on AIM back in June 2015 and, although I find it hard to see value at the current market cap, it is showing signs that it could grow into it.

In a “non-regulatory RNS Reach communication”, Fitbug (FITB) “is pleased to announce a customer renewal for wellbeing services with a large financial institution”.

Could Digital Barriers be on the verge of turning things around?

Published 119 days ago

Digital Barriers (DGB) has been like so many other AIM companies, in that it has promised a lot but has failed to deliver in the way that investors expected it to, and it now looks like the last chance for the company to live up to expectations.

Switch Your Focus from Tiddlers to Leviathens - But Not Any Old Leviathan

Published 142 days ago

Hello Share Swappers. We are now living in even scarier times than usual in Shareland. What with Brexit, Big Donald, a possible new cold war, inflation and growing world debt. We are also being frightened witless by the continuing shocking revelations by Uncle Tom and his top team of investigators. If I were running a shaky company, especially one on AIM, I would not be sleeping - ever.

Published 179 days ago

Time Out Group (TMO) “is pleased to announce” that “revenue for the full year is anticipated to be ahead of the board's expectations” and “closing net cash expected to be better than previously anticipated”. So why are the shares barely ahead, at 137p?...

CloudTag – just how much cash is this company burning? £9m in 2016?

Published 201 days ago

With the L1 funding package now fully drawn, AIM-listed CloudTag has now had an awfully large amount of money, yet we are still to see a product available for it to sell. But thumbing through the RNSs of the last few months shows an incredible cashburn. Where has it all gone?

ShareProphets share tips of the year Number 19: Sell Taihua says Nigel Somerville

Published 205 days ago

ShareProphets AIM-China Filthy Forty play Taihua (TAIH) is, in my view, a screaming sell in view of the Red Flags highlighted on this site for months. I doubt very much whether a short position is possible with this stock, but if I were a holder I’d be running for the hills.

Published 300 days ago

Hello Share Puzzlers. Thank goodness the hay fever season is over. I no longer suffer, having moved to the seaside, but the horror of a blocked conk and streaming eyes remains. You may have noticed that allergies seem to be on the rise. At least the number of folk who complain about them is.

Filthy 40 Haike Chemical – yet more Red Flags as it admits 50% overstatement in trading update

Published 321 days ago

ShareProphets AIM-China Filthy Forty play Haike Chemical (HAIK) took the biscuit this morning with an update that its last trading statement was just sheer hogwash. If it was uninvestable before, finding out that an “administrative oversight” led to a 50% overstatement of revenue which has taken almost seven weeks to come to light ought to have investors shying away from their bargepoles even if wearing asbestos gloves.

Record Car Sales Should Boost Engineering Firm TT Electronics

Published 332 days ago

Hello Share Funsters. I don’t like investing in the motor industry because I think we should all do more walking, I hate air pollution and don’t really like driving. But this should not stop my bringing to your attention companies in this line which I think might make you some money. Though you must always do your own research as I could be - and often am - wrong.

The Welsh Wafer Firm Gets a Share Boost - and It Could Be Justified

Published 368 days ago

Hello Share Fiends. As ARM (ARM) is likely to be taken over at a juicy premium for shareholders of 42% on the pre-news price, it is only fitting that we look at another company in (very) roughly the same line of business. It is another of my limited stable of technological shares and it's called IQE (IQE).

Eagle Eye Solutions – CEO reckons “encouraging progress”, the market reckons not…

Published 409 days ago

C'mon Postie, Don't Be Slow, Your Shares in Royal Mail Could Go Man Go.

Published 416 days ago

Hello Share Crunchers. Let me send you a letter recommending you research Royal Mail (RMG). I believe, though am not entierly sure as I don't look too closely into her finances, that my wife still holds some shares. So I am not entirely unbiased. Though I sold mr Royal Mail stock some time ago for a tasty profit - and have no plans at present to buy them back. This is not because I believe the share has a limited prospect of rising, but because this family already owns enough Royal Mail shares. Eggs and baskets and all that.

SpaceandPeople plc – another profits warning, what now?

Published 1045 days ago

Manager of promotional and retail merchandising space in shopping centres and other high footfall venues, SpaceandPeople plc (SAL) has announced results for the first half of 2014 “challenging period for the group, with trading in a number of areas being slower than had been anticipated". It now expects full-year “profit before tax and non-recurring costs of between £800k and £1.0million and profit before tax but after non-recurring costs, of between £500k and £700k”. Is this discounted in a share price, which has fallen from more than 150p earlier this year to a current sub 50p?

Early September's Stock-Ping - research Hydrodec Group Plc

Published 1054 days ago

For the September Stock-Ping Stockpinger brings you a company operating in a specialised and niche market, a company far unlike companies already featured. However, having said that, this is a company with an emphasis on recycling, slightly akin to last month’s Stock-Ping, TEG Environmental. This month we’ve picked Hydrodec Group PLC (HYR).

Nighthawk looks a good buy at this price

Published 1059 days ago

Nighthawk Energy (HAWK) has had more than its fair share of ups and downs over the years, but now seems to be heading in the right direction. The AIM-listed oil producer and explorer is based in the US with licences in various parts of Colorado, and the latest update showed that during July it produced over 2,000bopd – although this was down slightly on the previous two months due to maintenance work and testing.

WPP at 1245p; an excellent play on Sterling weakness

Published 1062 days ago

WPP interim results are a classic example of what the strong pound has been doing to British overseas earners. Thank God the minority of two on the Bank of England rate setting Monetary Committee did not persuade the rest to raise interest rates when the Committee met recently. Life is tough enough for companies such as WPP (WPP); most of its top line revenue comes from overseas. In the six months to June 30 this was reported up 2.7%. However, if it were not for the painfully strong Sterling exchange rate, revenue, we are told would, have risen a staggering 11.3%.

Sell Group4 Services; looks undercapitalised

Published 1066 days ago

I first looked at Group4 Services (GFS) just thirteen months ago. Then the share price had collapsed to 212p after the Olympic Games fiasco and the charging scandal, in which HM Prison service was wrongly charged by G4S for tagging offenders not in custody, when it turned out that they were in prison or not available for such a service. It transpired that the picture of Group 4 operatives turning up for a made to measure electronic leg attachment, had too much fiction about it. Such seeming duplicity was a disastrous public relations and brand image catastrophe with bad vibrations. In July 2013, I found value in the company and the share price of 2012p, which duly obliged by peaking at 274p earlier this month. Last seen, the shares had come down to 261p.

Power to the People Giant Set to Energize Share Price.

Published 1083 days ago

Hello Share Pickers: Aggreko (AGK) has been a great share for me. But that was a few years ago. When the share price started to decay after a long healthy bull run, I dumped 'em. There is no loyalty in this black heart. Your best share in the whole wide world should be dropped when things start to go wrong. And they nearly always do, eventually.

Afren at a bargain basement price

Published 1083 days ago

Afren (AFR) has taken a massive hit following the suspension of two of its directors, and it could well have further to drop.

Back to the ‘T’s and mother nature for this month’s Stockping however far removed from wireless technology and infection control, the company this month operate on the old adage ‘where there’s muck, there’s money’ and possibly in increasing amounts in years to come. TEG Group PLC (TEG) with its wholly owned subsidiaries, TEG Environmental , TEG Energy  and Simpro  along with 50% stakes in TEG Biogas (Perth)  and TEG Biogas (London) provides state of the art technology for handling organic wastes with abbreviations such as: ‘IVC’ – in vessel composting, ‘ABP’ – animal by product and ‘AD’ anaerobic digestion, gardeners will know, the latter is rather smelly, but this shouldn’t put you off the share!!!
