I tipped this stock at 175p to buy the other day on my Nifty Fifty premium web site but now at 184p in the middle it is still cheap – target price at least 250p.
I remember a time not long ago when there was a story that Kenmare Resources could be taken over by Rio Tinto (RIO) at 100p a share.
It is clearly a scandal how utilities groups make millions and billions a year, and of course even more pathetic that we the consumer keep on paying up without question.
Where is the value in the market? How about a company trading at a discount to net cash let alone Net Asset Value.
It may just be me, but it would appear that much of the battle with AIM stock heroes such as Igas is trying to work out when it is safe to go back into a speculative situation.
Greenwich Loan Income Fund (GLIF) announced a Q1 NAV of 54p (end-2012, 49.1p) a couple of weeks ago with the increase being half asset appreciation and half currency related.
Chamberlin plc (CMH) is a UK-based specialist foundry and engineering group which myself and Tom Winnifrith have followed successfully previously – including Tom recommending, with the shares at 187.5p, on the back of a trading update in October that “given the short-term outlook, the safest play right now looks to be to take the profit and sell”.
The prize for the biggest POS among AIM oil explorers and producers is a hotly contested one but New World Oil & Gas (NEW) is – after today’s dreadful announcement of drilling failure – an almighty strong contender.

Welcome to the wonderful world of Quantum Dots in which Nanoco is literally a leading light.
As is often the case as far as stocks and markets are concerned, when profit taking sets in, the pullbacks tend to be the “worst of both worlds.”
There is nothing like the smell of patented active-active replication technology in the morning, especially when enterprises can have non-stop access to their crucial data.
The U.S. Comex gold futures surged 4.76 percent to $1,462.0 on Thursday, about 6.6 percent below the closing level of 11 April before the rout occurred.
Commissioned researcher Edison has today published a detailed note with forecasts on AIM listed Kea Petroleum (KEA) – shares in which trade at 7.25p.
Dialight plc (DIA) has for a while been a favourite of star fund manager Mark Slater and the shares have proved a hugely rewarding investment over recent years – up from little more than 100p in early 2009, sub 700p at the start of 2012 and just over 1000p in some of the early days of 2013 to a current almost 1300p.
The uber excellent mining analyst Roger Bade of Whitman Howard is clearly an interesting and widely read fellow and as a result of his subscription to the gripping publication Industrial Minerals Magazine appears to have picked up on a few problems round at Kenmare Resources (KMR).
Results last month from mid cap oil and gas stock Afren (AFR) produced no shocks but this is not a sector that is flying.
Oil and gas stocks may be unloved but Ireland based AIM listed Fastnet Oil & Gas (FAST) has its fans.
We first recommended shares in Telecom Plus (TEP) on a website we founded and edited at 187.25p in January 2008.
Range Resources (RRL) shares will be unsuspended today as it has announced a merger with an Australian company founded by convicted heroin dealer Frank Timmis and also a placing.
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…

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.
