Having previously noted a respectable showing from the start of 2018 top shorted London-listed shares, how was the performance of the AIM shares then shorted?...
Hello, Share Tweakers. Next (NXT) is another retailer that realises online sales are becoming more dominant over high street stores. And that has paid off. A last-minute burst of computerised Christmas shopping has been especially beneficial, according to the clothing giant.
In today's podcast I explain domestic disturbances caused by the need to move to the Grim Northern welfare safari and to be closer to my mother-in-law. Oh happy days. In the podcast itself I look at FinnCap (FCAP), IQE (IQE), UK Oil & Gas (UKOG), Amur Minerals (AMC), Cabot (CAB) and Corero (CNS) a most almighty sell however you look at it.
There is probably no more irritating an adage than the old Wall Street one which says “no one rings a bell at the bottom or top of a market” … but it does highlight the purpose or value of making a trading call - or if you prefer (as it is the season for it) … in making a forecast.
Oh dear. Oh dear. For those beguiled by the shoddy analysis of thirsty Paul Scott into buying shares in IQE (IQE), things are set to go from bad to worse. Much worse. Last night Apple issued a first quarter sales warning.
Last year Britain’s most conceited fund manager, whose flagship fund is ranked 241/241 for performance, Mr Neil Woodford filed accounts 11 days before the deadline, on 20 December. This year Woodford Investment management has yet to file its accounts for the year to March 31 2018. It is late. It will be fined. The FCA will be having kittens. You want proof?
Wakey wakey London’s second worst Nomad! Your client Independent Oil & Gas (IOG) could be about to crash land in tits up alley. A statement is needed NOW after the FCA swooped on its ultimate benefactor. What, you mean Finncap’s (FCAP) Nomad clowns didn’t realise? Jokers. Poltroons. Not fit for purpose.
A “Trading Update” from Corero Network Security (CNS) emphasising “order intake for 2018 is expected to be approximately 20% higher than 2017, driven by record order intake in H2 and the final quarter”, “SmartWall revenue growth of approximately 20% over the prior year” and “significantly reduced EBITDA loss to approximately $2.5 million”. The shares have currently responded, er, approaching 6% lower to 12p…
At 5.09pm last night, no-one-is-watching o’clock (natch), The People’s Operator (TPOP) announced that it had filed a notice of intention to appoint administrators – we are told this will happen within ten days. Of course, readers of ShareProphets have known this was coming for some time (not that the company has been falling over itself to make that clear). The decision was taken on New Year’s Eve – so how on earth did it take until 5.09pm yesterday to announce it (after everybody had gone home for the night)?
Happy New Year and all that...it is good - as a larger-cap share watcher - to finally have some proper and pukka newsflow to write about again. It was getting dangerously close to me having to write about the millennial bleating about how stock markets shockingly could actually go down. The even better news is that you do not have to suffer one of my subjective retail runaround pieces akin to my mid-December musings HERE. Back then I observed that;
Most material on twitter is unadulterated junk. But there is the odd gem. In the case of Tesla (TSLA) where the sell side analysts are all paid bulls, some of the best insight is on twitter. Like Lucian Miers, I regard this company as an accident, no an outright car crash, just waiting to happen. In that vein I bring you a most instructive series of tweets yesterday from @Polixines13 who knows his or her onions.
Hello Share Chasers. Findel (FDL) is an unusual sort of company, combining two very different areas of business activity. It sold a lot of Christmas bits and pieces in the Yule countdown. Its less seasonal products include clothes, toys, furniture and kitchen stuff. The other arm is the Findel Education department. This supplies things to schools. The only common denominator which comes quickly to mind is that children’s needs are a large part of its custom.
In today's podcast I explain why own in-house Bulletin Board Moron Wildes has disappeared, how I am considering kidnapping the Chavs cat, a forthcoming contest and then I look at Amur Minerals (AMC), MX Oil (MXO), Audioboom (BOOM) and Online Blockchain (OBC).
Early each year, we note the top shorted London-listed shares as at the start of the year. How did 2018's perform?...
Eagle Eye Solutions (EYE) “is pleased to announce the appointment of Shore Capital as joint corporate broker to the company with immediate effect”. Hmmm, why might that be?...
Fund manager Jaime Carrasco is a bundle of New Year cheer. Not! He assumes that markets are manipulated through excess money printing and suppression of some like gold and silver. Investors would likely be less interested in markets if the price of gold were much higher. Precious metals reveal the underlying market risks and the year ahead will probably bring additional risks but also opportunities.
I have had my threats for exposing the fraud that is Pacific Tycoon, a fraud that companies such as ADVFN (AFN) and others in UK financial services have been prepared to promote despite my exposes. It seems that Pacific now operates under two names, a reader (Daryl) has the whole scam banged to rights and relayed his experience on our comments section. This post merits a wider audience. Over to Daryl…
This is a typical AIM Cesspit tale of woe and greed. CSF Group (CSF) listed on the AIM casino in 2010, a smallish Malaysian company of no interest to anyone. But the advisers raked it in with fat fees and fat promises to the board and shareholders. Coke and hookers all round in the Square Mile. Wind forward to August 28 last year.
Having asked for readers tips for 2018 for the amazing prize of a meal with Tom Winnifrith (or the chance to fob it off on someone you don't like) HERE (to be eligible needed to have selected, on a per username basis, a buy & sell pick from the LSE or AIM Casino and the stocks not to have been suspended at the commencement of 2018), the winner is...
Catenae Innovation (CTEA) has announced results for its year ended 30th September 2018, including “the board saw the restructuring of the business as critical to delivering the new business strategy and became the primary focus for much of the year. The period saw the commencement of the recovery for the business with the introduction of the new product set and the board are pleased to see that the revised products areas are attracting both interest and revenues”…
