Stanley Gibbons Interims - bad as expected but...heck I've bought the shares

Disclosure: Financial Investigative Media Limited, which is not owned by Tom Winnifrith but by a trust for his dependants, owns shares in companies mentioned in this article. I wrote this article myself, and it expresses my own opinions. I am not receiving compensation for it (other than from ShareProphets). I have no business relationship with any company whose stock is mentioned in this article.

About ten days ago, Stanley Gibbons (SGI) announced (piss poor) results for the six months ended 30th September 2015 and stated that “the board expects that the group will deliver materially higher revenue and profit in the second half of the financial year than in the first half, partially assisted by this year's auction calendar being more heavily weighted towards the second half”. So I've bought some shares for FIML at 99p.
