XP Power – Advanced Energy Industries not to make an offer, did its proposal really ‘fundamentally undervalue the company and its prospects’?

Advanced Energy Industries, Inc. (Nasdaq - AEIS) has announced that it does not intend to make an offer for electronics power control components company XP Power (XPP) after a latest, 1950p per share, possible offer was unanimously rejected by the XP Power board as “fundamentally undervalues the company and its prospects”. So what about the XP Power share price reaction then?

DCI Advisers shares to be suspended July 1 - more red flags vicar?

I served up an explicit warning about DCI Advisors (DCI) back on 21 April HERE. Today another shocker from Greece. The shares will be suspended on July 1 because of audit issues.

Mission Group – how ‘pleasing’ is its AGM trading statement?

An “AGM Trading Statement” from digital marketing and communications business Mission Group (TMG) which it states it “is pleased to provide… report further new business wins underpinned by the investments made in previous years”. So what of a 24p share price, down from 28p earlier this month and 37.5p going into the final quarter of last year?

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: what is worse, 2 Shipman encounters or emails from Kefi shareholders

I start with the Shipmans and it's mixed news then I look at Versarien (VRS),Mind Gym (MIND), ARC Minerals(ARCM), Anglesey Mining (AYM), Kefi Gold & Copper (KEFI) and Corcel (CRCL).

H&T Group – now again a Buy

Like Wood Group (WG.) recently, H&T Group (HAT) is a former successful share tip here with we banking good gains a couple of years ago at a 388p bid price. We noted then confidence of expectations for full-year earnings per share rising above 32p, whilst now there are current year hopes of they rising above 57p…but the shares are currently still available at a 395p offer price. With a strong dividend too, we now rate the shares again a Buy.

Ariana Resources – Dokwe project Mineral Resource increase, Buy target up to 10p!

Ariana Resources (AAU) has announced the completion of a revised Mineral Resource Estimate of both Dokwe North and Dokwe Central. The detail suggests that there is good reason for we shareholders to be pleased.

Acuity RM – fundraising “focusing on accelerating the growth”, how significantly so?

Risk management software group Acuity RM (ACRM) “is pleased to announce… the company has raised approximately £1 million in aggregate (before expenses)”. This is with it stating it “is now focusing on accelerating the growth” following the reverse takeover of the trading business in April last year. But what’s the detail of the fundraising and how significantly does it look set to ‘accelerate the growth’?
SYME

Supply@ME Capital: I know that TR1s are for little people but….

The technically insolvent fraud Supply@ME Capital (SYME) now has 71,732,142,145 shares in issue following the placing of 9,000,000,000 new shares effective from 31 May 2024. The Avantgarde Group issued a TR1 on 31 May showing its reduced holding but to date death spiral provider Venus has not issued a TR1.
CRCL

Corcel: the latest rogue in charge is perhaps the worst yet as chairman welches on placing letter

All sorts of colourful characters have run Corcel (CRCL), Regency Mines as was, over the years. Rather like Archbishops of Canterbury you insist that the current incumbent is the worst ever only to discover that his replacement is even worse. Andrew Bell once ran this company into the ground. Then there was James Parsons and today’s chairman is Antoine Karam. After news today, shareholders will look back on the days of Bell and implore him to return just as we now think that the bearded lunatic Rowan Williams was, with hindsight, not such a bad Archbishop after all.
MIND

MindGym – full-year results, trading to sufficiently improve for the valuation?

Previously writing on provider of corporate jargon, oops I meant “provider of human capital and business improvement solutions”, MindGym (MIND), in April I concluded with the shares up to 38.5p that the valuation, noted continuing “cautious” trading environment and balance sheet uncertainty suggested to still avoid. What of now full-year results and the shares currently down to 30p?

BIRD

As Blackbird shares hit a six year low is it time for yet another lack of profits warning?

After twenty-six years of being funded with other people’s money, twenty four of them as a listed company, Blackbird (BIRD), formerly Forbidden Technology (FBT) is, I suggest, sitting on more bad news.

Eden Research: More lesbians with your diversity vicar?

You really could not make this up. I have always viewed corporate awards as a complete joke, an excuse for mutual back slapping by folks pouring themselves into DJs and party frocks with shareholders (never invited) picking up the tab for the canapes and champagne. They are always a pointless vanity but this takes the biscuit.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Why on earth did that woman from the Stock Exchange get a gong?

In today's podcast I cover Supply@ME Capital (SYME) and the AGM I now think I might be attending, Nightcap (NGHT) and its barking mad CEO La Willingham, the London Stock Exchange and a wholly undeserved gong for Julia Hogget, and Gary's assertion that labour tax threats are discounted. I also look in detail at the failure of AIM regulation to fine a single PLC for three years..

NightCap's Sarah Willingham goes mad can she even count beyond ten these days?

La Willingham's business is crumbling. Nightcap will only be able to pay rent and payroll this month thanks to another bailout funding. But even that £3.5 million funding is struggling to complete. She is having to fire staff at HQ as I revealed HERE but has yet to 'fess up to the market. Her staff hate her after I revealed how money from the tronc ( tips for low paid bar staff) was used for a luxury ski trip for senior managers. So what does she do?

Given the Labour manifesto on UK oil and gas, is Serica Energy still worth considering as an investment?

In the past I’ve generally been pretty bullish on Serica Energy (SQZ), but that changed with the Tailwind Energy acquisition deal which I was far from being a fan of, and since then the share price has slid backwards fairly dramatically.

The View From The Montana Log-Cabin As Gold Sneaks Back Over $2300,$2500 here we come!

Gold closed the week at $2,333 – up from last week’s disappointing $2,293 and back over $2,300. The question is whether $2,300 will hold now, or whether the yellow metal will correct to a lower level. I fancy it could well hold the line after a week during which expectations for US interest rate cuts were massaged lower by the Fed – usually bad news for Gold – as US treasury yields fell.

Visual Aid: EU Emigrants by Country
