Shares in Vedanta Resources (VED) did very well last time I tipped them, and it looks like it is time to think about buying back in again. Back in March I tipped Vedanta at 845p and a few months later it hit highs of over 1200p, and now that it is back down in the 940s it is well worth buying at this level and on any further dips.
Martin Murenbeeld highlights in the recent Gold Monitor the lack of attention steered towards the continuing up-take of physical gold in China. Despite the general conclusion of physical demand in China being down year-on-year, from record level 1,275t last year to an expected 900-1,000t according to WGC, the distribution of physical gold through the Shanghai Gold Exchange (SGE) shows a growing appetite for gold in the long term.
Gem counter Firestone Diamonds (FDI) should be ready to produce one million carats a year from its flagship Liqhobong project in the politically-troubled southern African kingdom of Lesotho by the middle of 2016, having halved its pre-tax losses to $11.2 million (£7 million) in the year to June. So says chairman Lucio Genovese, as the AIM-quoted company nears completion of the sale of South African assets and works to dispose of its ‘low-grade, high-value’ BK11 mine in Botswana.
Having seen the share price of Royal Mail (RMG) reduce by a quarter (from 526p to 390p - last seen) since my initial assessment last May, I thought it opportune to have another look to see where now are in valuation terms?
On previously commenting on AIM-listed developer and provider of offerings based on the ‘Automatic Identification System’ maritime domain awareness technology, Software Radio Technology plc (SRT) I noted an approach to ALL investors and potential investors that should be applauded, but awaited operational delivery. The following updates on a trading statement which has helped the shares 4.5% higher on the day to 26p.
Hello Stock Riflers. I guess most share shifters who tune into this fabulous website are short or mid term punters. I'm mostly a momentum trader which means some of my trades are very short indeed. You can't afford to stay with a stock too long when you haven''t done deep research, but are instead relying on the fact that the share is moving upwards now - and could continue to do so for the next few days.
Having announced after the market closed on 30th September, with its shares at 31.75p, that its Chief Financial Officer had sold all of his shares in the company, eServGlobal (ESG) has noted “the recent move in its share price” (closing at 27p yesterday) and “wishes to announce that it continues to trade in line with the board's expectations”. With the shares already down from more than 59p earlier this year, what’s with the share sale though?
There is speculation that Quenron (QPP) subsidiary Quintica is horribly late in filing its annual report which was due on May 30th. Actually it changed its year end so the report was due to be filed 30th September 2014. It has not been but it is only a bit late not horribly late. However, I just wanted to point out that the release announcing the deal was a tad on the misleading side.
On Monday 29th September the first ShareProphets evening seminar was held. 4 talks, free pizza and booze. A great time was had by all. To ensure that you get priority booking for future seminars (the next one is 13 October) register HERE. The first talker was Chris Gilbert of Fox Marble (FOX) who spoke well and made a good case. I rate the shares as a buy.
When, in the not too distant future, learned books and articles appear discussing the crazy climate at the top of the bull market which started in March 2009, there will be various iconic examples greed and folly at the peak in 2014.
There are some palpable reasons for the markets nervousness at the moment. They include the hush that has settled around the public demonstrations in Hong Kong - where the love of liberty seems to have taken root - and the alarming geometric growth in the number of Ebola infections in West Africa.
It sticks in the craw when management award themselves share options at 10p when the share price is 17p. But that is what Premaitha (NIPT) announced yesterday. However
Benjamin Graham is the man who taught Warren Buffett about investing in shares. His classic book is The Intelligent Investor which is as relevant today as it was when first published in 1952. Let’s get right into the quotes again, we’re now on Chapter One.
Daniel Stewart (DAN) earns its money advising companies (not all of them frauds) how to list and behave on AIM. It brought us Naibu (NBU) and Quenron (QPP). Two days ago its own shares were suspended on the AIM casino because the cash strapped firm could not publish its accounts on time – see HERE. In honour of this…
Today I cover another pair trade. This time I say dump shares in Urals Energy (UEN) and grab a slice of Fastnet Oil & Gas (FAST). Here is why. In short, Urals is an obscenely risky play and Fastnet is an extremely tasty, low risk, play.
I have noted before how active QPPSAG member, the Jew hating DaveyCaferacer posts some utter crap about Quenron (QPP). It now seems he threatens to “pay me a visit.” From the asylum that is the LSE Bulletin board he writes:
Shares in digital inkjet printing technology company, Xaar plc (XAR) plunged 37% to 231p yesterday after ots latest profits warning. Should you bottom fish? Don't be silly.
This video is superb, In a humourous way it demonstrates why bears & short sellers provide such a valuable service to the stockmarket and it promises another major China fraud expose next week. I am almost tempted to head off to the Big Apple for the party...
Hello Share Tipplers. The big drinks firm Diageo (DGE) has had a dream rise to fame and fortune. But all that stopped about a year ago.
When I last wrote about Sound Oil (SOU), I suggested the “valuation looked stretched”. People lined up to disagree with me, not least Brokerman Dan. The problem with the rebuttals is they just sounded like the same tired old lines trotted out about countless resource stocks on AIM, all promising heavenly riches. And we know what happened to the overwhelming majority of them. Despite my cynicism, I was approached by a friend of Sound Oil’s asking if I’d talk to CEO James Parsons to hear his version of the story. Earlier in the week I caught up with Mr Parsons and there could be more to this company than I initially thought.

Making money from shares is simple. Well it should be. Buy cheap. Hold. Hold. Hold. Hold, and finally sell when the shares have delivered you big gains. Where so many folks go wrong is getting impatient and not being prepared to hold, hold, hold. Let us tell you about Symphony Environmental (SYM) which we tipped at a 6.75p offer just over three years ago. It did nothing for ages....
This week's contest is graciously sponsored by African Potash, AIM, NEX, Chris Cleverly vehicle that is bound to hit the stratosphere.*
Before I call it a day I want to see the victims of the African Potash (AFPO) fraud get some of their money back, even if some of those victims were fairly beastly to me as I exposed the fraud. Friday's bombshell from Potash shows the game is up but the big frauds happened before this worthless enterprise was booted off AIM. To that end I have been working to help put together a legal action. That action is now almost underway and Peter Petyt, the man running things, wrote to more than 50 victims who have come forward at the weekend. If you lost money and want to try to get it back it is not too late to contact Peter. His letter & contact details follow.
In this video from the storming success that was the 2017 UK Investor Show, Paul Scott finds Nigel Wray's and Paul Mumford's investment strategies. And make sure that you keep April 21 2018 free for next year's UK Investor Show.
Artificial political constructs never last. The EU is great for the “elites” in Brussels; not so much for the average citizen and the tragedy of monetary union is that Europe's political class has gone to extreme lengths to hold the euro together regardless of underlying economic logic. But this has only perpetuated and exacerbated the coming political crisis. "Monetary union has created a conflict between a centralised elite on the one hand, and the forces of democracy at the national level on the other. This is extraordinarily dangerous,” Mervyn King wrote in his recent book 'The End of Alchemy'.
As I flagged up over the weekend, in a desperate attempt to keep the fraud from becoming insolvent, African Potash (AFPO) has proposed a RTO of a company called Onshore Energy Limited, OEL. Lyin' Chris Cleverley Potash's boss is also a director and shareholder on OEL. But it gets worse. Much worse.
I previously wrote on WANdisco (WAND) in January – ‘one quarter does not an investment make, but offers some encouragement for shareholders’. The following updates with the shares currently on the rise on the back of a “Significant customer win and Q1 update” announcement…
Yesterday we wandered through the first page of search results on the OpenCorporates.com website to look at the record of AIM-listed Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO) Executive Chairman Dr Michael Jeffrey Sinclair. There are rather a lot – here comes page 2.
Stanley Gibbons (SGI) has announced it “has sold one of the rarest pieces of Indian Philately to a private collector-investor in Australia for £500,000, the highest price ever paid for a single Indian philatelic item”.
ShareProphets AIM-China Filthy Forty play Taihua (TAIH) announced last Friday that the EGM called to approve the company’s proposed delisting from the AIM Casino had passed the proposals with the requisite majority. The shares are expected to depart the world’s most successful (but perhaps not for Taihua) growth market first thing on 8 May. In the wake of the announcement – at 4.15pm last Friday, bordering on no-one-is-watching o’clock - the shares again nose-dived, registering a new low of 0.1p on the bid yesterday, but all of a sudden the stock is on the rampage this morning. What is going on?
AIM-listed Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO) – teetering on the brink of having to call an EGM to reduce its nominal share capital under the terms of its death-spiral funding package with Bracknor – has announced yet another director share purchase, the fourth just this month (if we ignore the botched 7am RNS of 4 April). As ever, this is just a spoof in order to encourage more buying in the market so as to allow Bracknor to offload more of its death-spiral conversion shares as Advanced hopes and prays for the next £1.235 million tranche of funding before the coffers run dry.
On 12 April 2017, the fraud that is African Potash (AFPO) announced a change of auditors from RSM UK Audit LLP to PKF Littlejohn LLP. One can understand why RSM UK Audit LLP might be keen to cease its relationship with a company with the frankly appalling track record of African Potash but how desperate does PKF Littlejohn LLP look in taking on African Potash as an audit client?
The COT report reveals the large paper short and long positions in silver. Currently it appears to be indicating a small downtrend in the silver market. In this week's Palisade podcast David Morgan discusses how silver markets move and how they can be pushed to the downside once investors run low on cash, as banks will short the market at opportune moments.
Goals Soccer Centres (GOAL) has admitted “preliminary discussions” with key rival Powerleague on “combining the two businesses”, though emphasises that is “but one of the strategic opportunities currently being assessed by the Goals board”…
An announcement from Blancco Technology Group (BLTG) entitled “Q3 Trading Update, Cash Flow Review and Funding”. Hmmm, I’d guess it ain’t gonna be positive…
Truly, there are no winners from the pool of Bulletin Board morons, only those who succeed in making our eyes roll the furthest.
Together Robert Sutherland Smith and Tom Winnifrith have now been working in finance for 71 years - the last ten or so together. Tom wishes to stress that RSS accounts for most of that, the great value investor starting his City career at the Unilever Pension Fund the year before Tom was born. In this book they outline 71 tricks of the trade for making money from shares.

Most investment books seem to be large enough to keep the front door open and while some contain gems it is hard to find them amid the verbiage. The aim here is to produce a short guide which simply cuts to the chase. I hope that it will provide food for thought for everyone from beginner to expert but whoever you are it should be quick and easy to read and digest.
