While some stocks may leave us scratching our heads on a fundamental or technical basis, or even on both, the real secret to getting it right is to go for the set piece situations where the indications are very difficult to question.
Commissioned researcher Hardman is paid by companies to publish “independent research” on them. Oddly its research reports on its paying clients rarely come to the conclusion that the client company is overvalued.
Satellite operator Avanti Communications is one of those companies that clearly divides traders and investors right down the middle.
West African Minerals is a good example in terms of the recent charting history of how a stock’s technical fortunes can flip around entirely and once they do this U turn in the price action forces fans of a company to make awkward decisions: in this case how to deal with the prospect of a return to early 2012 levels under 20p.
An extended triangle formation based at 100p suggests that below this level Xcite Energy could head as low as 50p on a 3-6 month time frame.
Britain’s Buffett, Nigel Wray and commercial property tycoon Nick Leslau discuss the markets, investing, and property.
Apparently 9 days ago when shares were 36p I suggested that they were a buy with a 50p target. As things turned out on Wednesday they peaked out at 49.63p, a third of a penny short of the target.
AIM and Canada-listed, South American focussed gold producer and explorer, Orosur Mining (OMI) is a company I followed from 2010 on a website I formerly wrote for.
14bn barrels of oil as a possible reserve sounds enormous. But can Gulf Keystone export any oil that it produces from Kurtdistan?
Amanda van Dyke is a partner at Dundee Securities and chair of Women in Mining. She is a mining guru-ess and gave a detailed presentation at the UK Investor Show on April 13th.
Thanks for all the positive feedback on the Shareprophets.com service. And also for the suggestions! And so we have, over the weekend incorporated a few new features in the website.
AIM-listed, Indonesia-operating gold company Archipelago Resources (AR.) is highly rare amongst its peers in that it is actually profitable and dividend-paying.
I want to requisition an EGM for AIM listed management lifestyle, oops I meant oilfield services company Vialogy (VIY) to change its name to Yadda, yadda, yadda PLC to reflect more accurately what this is all about.
Although at first glance the price action of Aminex shares would appear to be erratic, there is a method in the madness, something which derives from the way that at least since this time last year the stock has been occupying a relatively reliable 4p – 6p range.
While many traders lust after the volatility of AIM , resources stocks and many small caps in general, it has to be said that there is much to be said for price action which is consistent and does not give you myocardial arrhythmia.
I tipped Pan Pacific Aggregates once. It was a rotten tip. I thought the company had gone bust but like a vampire in a horror flick this corpse keeps coming back, sucking the life out of investor's wallets.
Hedge fund managed Man Group’s recent history has been one of the more troubled in the recent past, with flagging performance at its key AHL Fund, and a distinct underperformance on a lack of visibility on any positive drivers as compared to its more traditional fund manager rivals whose shares have shot ahead.
I may be an expert on The Beatles, the weather and even charting, but I am not yet one on handbags.
From a personal perspective the golden age of Bollywood was the late 1960s and 1970s with such classics as Sholay, Kabhi Kabhie, and Qurbani with the ultra beautiful Zeenat Aman.
It’s the battle of the year, again, as Tom Winnifrith takes on Richard Poulden at the UK Investor Show: is there a future for the AIM market?
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.
