I start by referring you to a video just up of my labour of love, the Greek Hovel, which you can see HERE. Then I take apart the bullish nonsense about the stockmarket Malcolm Stacey served up yesterday HERE. Finally I look at IPOs planned for the next few weeks such as that of Sam Smith's FinnCap and broker AJ Bell. Why oh why go now? Surely they are both either mad or desperate? I discuss in detail why both should be avoided like the plague, referring also to the Funding Circle IPO debacle.
Is there anything better than sitting back and reading a well-written article on a lazy Sunday? Every week ShareProphets features some long form journalism that you'll find of interest. Grab your cuppa and enjoy these five articles.
During the last couple of years we have seen two retailers from the angling market float on the market, and their fortunes have taken very different directions.
Looking at the leaderboard this week, I find it interesting - after a few days of plummeting share prices - that the most read articles are on prosaic things: clothing, hotels, real estate, and minerals.
Many years ago the appearance of the company’s auditors on site would send shock-waves through the work-force. Everyone would do absolutely everything by the book and mind their Ps and Qs – and breathe a sigh of relief when the bean-counters departed the scene, according to my late mum who spent a youthful period out of school working for Guinnesses in Dublin.
And so another month has slipped by and it is time for another update on my five to sell – or just steer a very wide berth around. Last month the average loss amongst AIM-listed Telit (TCM), Inspirit (INSP), Catanae (CTEA, formerly Milestone Group, MSG), Frontera Resources (FRR) and UK Oil and Gas (UKOG) was sitting at 17.4%. But we’ve had a bit of a sell-off……
Despite a series of strong earnings announcements, it’s been a disappointing few months for holders of London-listed bank shares. Tip activity spiked in the banking sector this week, spurred on by third quarter results announced by Lloyds Banking Group (LLOY) and Barclays (BARC) in recent days. This week, we take a look at recent tip activity in the sector, and see how tipster sentiment towards banking firms currently differs from brokers.
Early this month on HaloSource (HALO), I wrote emphasises “significant milestone”. Er, how’s this Woodford dog’s balance sheet? - concluding it looks prudent to currently be especially wary of apparently ‘good news’ here. Now a “Trading Update”…
In light of Cynical's piece earlier this week I discuss what happens next to Neil Woodford and his funds and it is not good. Of course some of us - not the useless FT - predicted it all a long while back as you can see in this excellent video from UK Investor show 2018 here
From the FCA's spreadsheet of short positions required to be disclosed to it, the following shows the shorted AIM shares with positions from 2017 and thus far in 2018 (by net short position %) - and if this position has increased (red), reduced (green) or remained unchanged (black) since last week...
It could be that the current market turbulence is no more than an entry point for easily the most successful investment strategy of the last ten years: BTFD (Buy the fucking dips) but I sense that this time we might be about to discover who has been swimming without trunks.
Hello, Share Carriers. Despite Uncle Tom’s denouncement of me as a money tree worshipper, I bring to you another more optimistic view of our shares and why I don’t think we should be selling right now. And it’s all because I’m one of the very few denizens of Shareland who see that there is a cynical strategy going on, which, as usual, began in the USA.
It is Oxi day here in Greece and I explain the historic context of that which brings me to why the EU has enabled conman Darren Winters to keep cheating the vulnerable and parting them from their money. I then look at Crawshaw (CRAW), Blue Jay Mining (JAY), Great Western Mining (GWMO) which is the ultimate penny dreadful, SalvaRx (SALV) and VR Education (VRE). And I should warn my old pal, the offshore based asset stripper, Jim Mellon that I have more bad news for him over the weekend.
A “Statement re media speculation” from Crawshaw Group (CRAW), including “the board confirms that it is considering a number of remedial actions to address the key issues it has identified, which may include raising additional funding through an equity capital raising”. Uh oh – hopefully my prior warnings were heeded…
AIM-listed Imaginatik (IMTK) has beaten the odds and signed up a new Nomad to replace FinnCap which slipped out of the back door a month ago. Good news – and on deadline day too. And so WH Ireland steps up to the plate. We also learnt that the company got a placing away – at just 1.1p, plans an Open Offer and has signed up for a death spiral toboot. Great stuff – but I won’t be interested for now and here is why.
Distil (DIS), owner of RedLeg Spiced Rum, Blackwoods Gin and Vodka, Blavod Black Vodka, Jago's Cream Liqueur and Diva Vodka, has announced results for its half year ended 30th September 2018 emphasising “our strong brand performance, operational improvements and continued tight control of overheads enabled us to deliver a maiden first half profit during the period”…
The country’s, easily, largest and ,certainly, most exciting, one day event for those who want to make more money from shares, UK Investor, is still nearly six months away but already more than two thirds of the 135 exhibitor PLC stands have been reserved. And we have an almost complete all star speaker line-up headed by Luke Johnson, Vin Murria, Mark Slater & Nigel Wray...
The markets are starting to show signs of weakness and although we are yet to see any major downwards correction, it is starting to look more likely that we will get one.
You may remember that PR man Henry Gewanter has taken Julie “Lingerie on Expenses” Meyer to court over unpaid bills. On 2nd August Gewanter won his case because Ms Meyer simply failed to file a defence. But now using the firm of Shakespeare Martineau, her 19th lawyers, most of the other 18 having failed to receive payment, Ms Sex Toys on expenses has struck back in her own, typically mendacious, way….
Slightly belated update on the end-September portfolio listings this month but the ‘good’ news is that I am no longer fighting this battle alone and a small, parochial rag called The Financial Times has started to pick up on the issues, although they don’t get all the story, natch!
