Hello Share Scratchers. On the heels of my last piece, in which I commended the fortunes of giant oilers, a few readers have asked me which jumbo firm do I prefer. I suppose the choice for British investors is between Shell (RDSA) and BP (BP.) I have big holdings in both outfits, but I lean towards one of them.

Hello Share Splashers. There are several well-worn maxims in Shareland which happen to be true. One of the best in my humble experience is ‘the trend is your friend’. Simply put, this is a share which has been rising for a few days continuing to rise. Just as a company which is doing badly continuing to see its stock tumble.

Hello Share Swipers. BHP Billiton (BLT) is a famous mining and oil producing company. It provides us with iron ore, copper, diamonds, aluminium, the ebony nectar and natural gas. I can imagine in my mind's eye many of you are now heading for the door. But hang on a bit.

Shares in Fitbug Holdings (FITB), having slid back to 7p, have soared again on Friday to 10.5p – to capitalise the company at more than £25 million - on the back of an announcement entitled “New Contracts with Amazon, Best Buy.com and Target”.

Fitbug (FITB) is a company that I’ve been watching with interest ever since its meteoric rises in October and November. I could sort of see why the rise from less than 0.4p to over 5p could be justified to some extent by the news that its ‘Fitbug’ was to be extensively stocked by Sainsbury’s and US giant Target, especially with Thanksgiving and Xmas on the way.

Previously updating on this website on Restore plc (RST) I concluded that the share price – then 182p - looked to have largely caught up with events after a very strong run in recent years. The following updates my view following a first half year trading update last week.
