The 200 day moving average is traditionally the benchmark as far as determining the trend for stock or market. Therefore as far as Extract Energy is concerned at the moment, its first break of the 200 day line 2 years has to be regarded as a significant technical watershed.
One of the more difficult challenges as far as stocks or markets are concerned is to call time on an extended bear run. In the case of ECR Minerals it can be seen that there has been an extended drift since the through last summer's double top through the 0.8p level.
As can be seen from the daily chart of Forbidden Technologies, the shares had their time in the limelight going into the start of 2012. Those lucky enough to be on board an unfilled gap to the upside from the 20p's were treated to a Happy New Year at a peak for the shares towards 50p.
Global Petroleum (GBP) has a relatively low cash burn and right now has more cash (£14.8 million) than, at 6.625p, its £13.2 million market capitalisation.
DJ Zak Mir takes a technical look at the latest "hit" from the satellite communications group.
It is now been almost two and a half years since the glory days of Ural Energy when the shares were trading at 18p plus at the beginning of 2011. The issue now is whether after what seems like an interminable period of unwinding/ de- ramping and a general imposition of misery to the bulls, the time has finally come for a sustained turnaround and a possible retracement of what has been lost?
I was delighted to find out that tungsten/gold miner W Resources as its assets focused in the Iberian peninsula-Spain/Portugal. This implies that there is at least some form of wealth creation going on in the "bailout zone" even as the local inhabitants await the arrival of the ECB helicopter money drops.
As someone who is realistic about how doomed the environment is, and who would like to see Global Warming take us back towards the levels of the Holocene Climate Optimum, I have no fear of fracking.
How do you fancy hearing talks and jokes from Evil Knievil and Lucian Miers? How do you fancy seeing the 2013 AIM Cesspit awards handed out to the companies and CEOs who have made the bottom end of AIM the joke that it is?
I can reveal exclusively that at last things are starting to happen on the regulatory front when it comes to AIM Cesspit listed Sefton Resources (SER) – the AIM regulation unit is now conducting multiple investigations into the company.
At the Annual General Meeting of shareholders of Bullabulling Gold Limited (BGL) held today the chairman served up a statement that was classic Bullabullabullshit. Investors are waking up and the shares lost another 10% to close at 2.375p but that still values this company – which may well be toast by mid-August – at £9 million.
Shares in AIM-listed Straight plc (STT), the UK's leading manufacturer and supplier of specialist kerbside recycling containers as well as a key supplier of a broad range of other waste and recycling products, have jumped more than 25% on the back of an announcement that the company has secured a position on a new four year, estimated £30 million-£60 million across six suppliers, framework agreement.
Following an AGM statement from Kenmare Resources (KMR) another broker has tweaked its forecasts and once again the tweak is downwards.
This has been well spun by Cupid (CUP) but yesterday’s trading statement was a disastrous profits warning.
AIM-listed Blavod Wines & Spirits (BES) is a company I have long, very disappointingly, followed – with it continually apparently having been on the verge of a turnaround but never really delivering.
I offer no comment on this weekly feature it is a simple matter of observation.
Shares in fully-listed, international recruitment and IT outsourcing & offshoring company Harvey Nash (HVN) have been strong performers since falling to 46.5p in July 2012.
I found the comment by Tom Winnifrith in his Video Postcard that technical analysts tend to make calls on the basis of momentum - long at the top / short at the bottom somewhat erroneous.
The current technical set up at Herencia Resources leaves me almost lost for words. This not only due to my parents having burned the equivalent of £150,000 on a Harrow School “education” to leave me with limited grammar skills and strange accent, but also because there are so many plus points on the daily chart.
The May edition of the UK Investor Show Magazine is live featuring three share tips from Gary Newman, the Greek meltown is worse than everyone thinks, and the EU is not fit for purpose plus a photofeature from the 2017 UK Investor Show.
The busting of a placing by AIM-listed UK Oil and Gas (UKOG) at 1p by Tom Winnifrith has caused a bit of controversy. It is not the first time he has been accused of being irresponsible by blowing the lid on a placing only for it to be pulled or the price dropped. Anyone left holding the baby gets their fingers burned – in the recent example quite badly if they had been buying into the ramp at north of 1.4p only to see the company raise cash at just 0.8p. Is it right?
The nauseating Mail on Sunday fawned upon Pippa Middleton and her ghastly family as they celebrated the "wedding of the Year". Bring on the revolution! But perhaps the real wedding of the year should be between our two very own in-house Bulletin Board Morons GrannySnuffs & Wildes who seem made for each other. can you find examples on the LSE Asylum, iii, ADVFN or twitter of comments more idiotic than those of our own dream team? If so post in the comments section below, the deadline is midnight Sunday 28th May.
Having bought itself some time by declaring an initial sack-the-board General Meeting requisition “invalid” (a revised, valid requisition announced by it at an attempted ‘no one watching o’clock’, 5:15 pm, on Friday), Infrastrata (INFA) has this afternoon made a “Review of stategic options & project update” announcement...
AIM-listed travel agent and wannabe Greek holiday resort developer Minoan (MIN) announced a small bolt-on acquisition this morning….and a placing. Oh, and an update on its debt facility due to expire at the end of June. It is disappointing to see a placing (at 9p), but in the general scheme of things it is a relatively small amount so the pill is sugared to some extent.
It was a keen competition this week. But we have found a winner.
Take a look! European investors are clearly failing to grasp the very significant financial and commercial benefits available for Orphan or Rare Disease drug developers. So much so in fact, that sector-focussed Amryt Pharma (AMYT) finds no quoted peers in London, yet a good basket of NASDAQ-listed comparables are seen to command a significant premium despite mostly being pre-revenue and somewhat earlier in their development. Such anomalies can and, of course, do rapidly correct.
Any reader of my pieces will know I hold Challenger Acquisitions (CHAL) in pretty low regard but the outrageous ramping that has now gone on for the last four trading days is an absolute disgrace and the FCA should take a look. I’ll explain.
I have already covered the dire financials of Eden Research that indicate it is just months from trading whilst insolvent as well as its panning by the Financial Reporting Council (FRC) - in response to my urgings. Now to today's monstrous half truths - I am perhaps being 50% too charitable in that description.
Eden Research (EDEN) has today published godawful results and admitted that my very good friends at the Financial Reporting Council (FRC) investigated it - after I requested such an investigation - and have forced it to restate past numbers. It claims that the FRC has now settled all matters. Au contraire. that is another lie from the fraudsters and there are many more porkies in this statement. Truly, the pants of shamed PR Paul Queenie McManus of Walbrook will be cinders and ash after this effort. This all came out as Eden published Godawful numbers for calendar 2016.
The sold-out success that was the 1st April 2017 UK Investor Show again saw five 'Dragon's Den' sessions where a number of CEOs each gave a pitch and three Dragons each picked one stock for a £1,000 investment. How are they faring so far?...
With some great investigative journalism of which this website would have been proud, Brokerman Dan flushed it out a few weeks ago. The former bank robber - correctly - stated that Andalas (ADL) was looking to raise £1 million at 0.06p and the AIM listed crock of shit suspended its shares. Today they are unsuspended after the company raised £600,000 at 0.1p. It says this is at a premium to the suspension price. But it is a spoof, Andalas is still bust. It is insolvent as of today!
Malcolm Stacey is old enough to know about King Canute. In fact he is so old that he was there as a boy when the King sat in his chair on the beach and attempted to turn back the tide. Malcolm surely you remember the day as if it was yesterday? In which case why do you forget this valuable lesson when it comes to Inmarsat (ISAT) and your article today in which you misquote me and get it wrong in so many other ways.
"A credit crunch is brewing and when it happens, the UK is going to get hurt." These are not my words but the start of the Editorial in this weekend’s Guardian. The article then went on to say "That is the message emerging from senior executives in the financial services industry, who do not think Britain has changed that much since the 2008 credit disaster and the devastating crash that followed. Three developments lie at the heart of this disturbing analysis: spectacular growth in the sale of second mortgages, car loans and credit cards." I would heartily agree with these comments as this is my experience too. But what the article fails to say is that the UK is not alone in this debt bubble - once more it is a Global issue.
Hello Share Scoopers. There have been quite a few occasions now that I’ve commended a Footsie satellite company to your attention. On each mention, as I recall, the share grew in value. However, last year the shares took a big knock.
One of the most fascinating scenes I’ve seen for some time is the sight of Big Donald jigging around with some sort of weird entertainment put on by the Saudi’s for the President's visit. It almost made me forget the big benefit of this amiable state visit on share shifters like us. And that of course is that the President’s friendly reception sent the oil price up.
An announcement from Corero Network Security (CNS) with a headline “Corero Tier 1 Internet service provider customer GTT Communications, Inc. launches DDoS Mitigation service”. Then “further to the announcement on 19 April 2017 regarding a Global Tier 1 Internet service provider customer win… announces that the customer, GTT Communications, Inc. (NYSE: GTT), has launched its DDoS Mitigation service”. “Global Tier 1” now hey! And you what? The contract win has already been announced? Ramptastic…
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.
