Last week I was cautious on Cambria Automobiles (CAMB) noting macro concerns, today there’s a pre-close statement from fellow AIM-listed Marshall Motor Holdings (MMH)…
I discuss the slew of retail trading statements. At a company level this podcast covers Card Factory (CARD), Lombard Risk Management (LRM) and Fishing Republic (FISH) where today's RNS is very er...fishy.
It was only yesterday on this site that I wrote: 'One of the hardest things for less experienced stock market participants to get their heads around is the expectations game. Numbers can be good (or bad) but if the teenage scribbler analyst, ‘professional’ fund managers and ‘the great unwashed’ in the form of other market participants broadly already think something, then confirmation of this event is not going to really change the share price needle. Of course as a consequence companies then start to try to become clever in managing expectations in order to 'beat' anticipated numbers...but that's for another time'. It is clear that Tesco (TSCO) either did not get the message or the animal spirits of those teenage scribbler analysts got the better of them…
Belatedly back at his desk after a long Christmas and New Year break, Andrew Monk of VSA Resources continues his sector reviews with a look at what he calls Batteries and Energy but, as he notes, it covers a multitude of sins really as there aren’t that many stocks that really fit this. Over to Monkey
We are, again, asked to explain the announcement made by Optibiotix (OPTI) about a forthcoming GM. Okay here goes!
I can see why holders of Tri-Star Resources (TSTR) would be less than impressed with the recent open offer, especially given the huge discount to the share price prior to that. This isn’t a company which I have really followed closely in the past, but the recent large fundraising at a 92% discount to the previous share price, and subsequent approval at the general meeting this week, got my attention.
Following my questions about the RNS released last Friday at 4.31pm by AIM-listed Victoria Oil & Gas (VOG) which saw a 20% share price drop during the auction, I have had confirmation of what actually happened from a reliable source. It makes a mockery of AIM Rules and MAR.
We own these shares but Zac "The Knife" Phillips is the City's No 1 oil analyst so we have an excuse for flagging up his latest note. His employer, SP Angel, is also shop to Curzon (CZN) so even the great Zac cannot be deemed impartial. However, the leader of the free world has done another "beautiful" thing, slashing US tax rates. Zac opines:
Hello, Share Trudgers. Following my less-than-enthusiastic article on Morrisons (MRW) yesterday, I now turn a jaundiced eye on its rival Sainsbury (SBRY).
In this podcast I look at the FCA Report into CFD providers. It rightly slams themn. We have told ETX we will have nothing more to do with it and really I want no part of this industry. As a libertarian I look at an industry where 76% of customers lose money. Then I hail the King, that is the King of the spoofers, Mr Clem Chambers of Online Blockcrap (OBC) - as I also cover HERE. I look at Moss Bros (MOSB) and what its profits warning plus the problems at Byrons say about B2C stocks. I also comment on Sosandar (SOS), which we own, en passant. Finally I look at the IPO of Nuuvera on the TSXV ( a market that makes the AIM Casino look sober and well run) and what that means for FastForward (FFWD). I again explain why all cannabis stocks will not fly.
A “Christmas Trading Update” from Quiz plc (QUIZ) is headlined “Strong trading across the Group's omni-channel business model”, yet from a 161p per share July AIM listing and almost 190p re-reached in October, the shares are currently little changed at around 150p. Hmmm…
In the UK the former Dragon's Den star who is a fully paid up member of the great and the good, Julie "Praise be the Lord" Meyer MBE stands accused of fraud and theft as we revealed HERE. - this is a charge she vigorously denies see HERE The FCA has now said that it is looking in to her and her flagship company Ariadne is in administration. But what of her offshore bolt hole in Malta where she runs five companies and is, pro tem, regulated to run her fund?
Cyber security services group ECSC (ECSC) has updated, including that it “is pleased to announce that trading performance for the 12 months ended 31 December 2017 was in line with market expectations”. So why a current circa 20% share price decline, below 200p?...
After his (belated) return to his desk Andrew Monk of VSA Resources has sent out another big report today to those lucky enough to be on his private email list. This time it is mining stocks. Over to the Monkey...
One of the hardest things for less experienced stock market participants to get their heads around is the expectations game. Numbers can be good (or bad) but if the teenage scribbler analyst, ‘professional’ fund managers and ‘the great unwashed’ in the form of other market participants broadly already think something, then confirmation of this event is not going to really change the share price needle. Of course as a consequence companies then start to try to become clever in managing expectations in order to 'beat' anticipated numbers...but that's for another time.
Andrew Monk of VSA is (belatedly) starting his 2018 this week with a seroes of sector reviews. In this one he looks at where oil is heading, at the majors and then concludes with the five oil juniors to buy. Over to the Monkey...
The Nomad is Roland "Fatty" Corniush, the most incompetent financial adviser in the known universe so, on that basis, Clem Chambers blockspoof Online Blockchain (OBC) must feel under no obligation to tell the truth as it places £1 million at 100p. This is the stuff of peak bull market insanity.
Previously writing on industrial LED lighting technology company, Dialight (DIA) I noted failure to deliver on addressing outsourced manufacturing issues. There’s this week been a “Directorate change, Trading update and outlook” and two “Director/PDMR Shareholding” announcements…
Hello, Share Stackers. Of the four big British supermarkets, I have the most hope for my holding in Morrison (MRW). This is not saying much, as I think they all suffer in comparison to the cheaper prices offered by the Germans. Aldi and Lidl still attract my custom more than Tesco (TSCO) and Sainsbury (SBRY). And I know I’m not the only one. But Morrison reports a bouncy Christmas.
If you are not old enough to remember the clip below you may not remember dotcom madness. In that vein i discuss Online Blockchain (BOLLOCKS). I look at Carillion (CLLN), surely a slam dunk short, BOS Global (BOS) and in some detail Mayan Energy (MYN)
After a lengthy hiatus, the Bulletin Board Moron of the Week has returned, thanks to the unrelenting lobbying of ShareProphets member Juicin Drumroll.
In today's bearcast my mind is a bit elsewhere as I explain HERE. But I cover SalvaRX (SALV), Optibiotix (OPTI), the fraud MySquar (MYSQ) and Falanx (FLX).
I have already covered results from Falanx (FLX) in bearcast but there is one matter than niggles me in the annual report – the “resignation” as a director of CEO Stuart Bladen. Let me explain…
Prompted by a reader I wonder exactly what Gavin Burnell of Globo infamy is doing round at Novum Securities these days?
As well as the public censure and fine announced yesterday for MBL Group (MUBL) two AIM Cesspit companies were fined and given private censures by the clowns at AIM regulation. But who are the naughty boys who misled investors and market and what does waste of space AIM Regulation boss Nilam Statham hope to achieve by this?
Recorded and transmitted from the Greek Hovel I appear to have upset someone because my ,language has become too ffing clean. Whatever. In this podcast I look at Andalas (ADL), Frontera (FRR) and Online Blockchain (OBC), Clem Chambers' block-spoof.
A day after pretty poor results from AIM-listed Falanx (FLX) and we have two RNSs announcing that the boardroom has been buying shares. Is it good news? Er…..to quite Shania Twain, that don’t impress me much.
Following the latest Walcom – customer still not coughed up, now its off to the lawyers, here's an August ShareProphets China AIM 'Filthy Forty' performance update...
Cynics will say that Falanx (FLX) delayed its results until August so that it could sugar the pill of not exactly sparkling numbers for the year to March 31 2018 with news that it achieved EBITDA profitability in July. Perhaps there is another reason. Certainly, no-one could describe what has been served up as sparkling and we shareholders will only be hitting the ouzo to dull the pain not to celebrate. The shares are down by 14% to 4.15p-4.4p, valuing the company at £11.1 million at mid. Is that an over-reaction?
Too many years ago to remember my most influential old boss gave me the nugget of investment advice that 'there is nothing more complex than an insurance company'. Broadly I have shared such sympathies over the resulting time period and it has probably saved me more times than it has hindered me. However in the light of this week's esure (ESUR) takeover by Bain Capital, I thought I would have a quick look at Admiral (ADM), which reported first half numbers today.
Castings plc (CGS) has updated commencing “demand from our main customers' remains strong” - so why do the shares remain well down on the comfortably more than 450p they were at early this year?...
I first commented on Nanoco Group (NANO) here with the shares at 64p in 2016. The stock has subsequently approached 22p, but jumped on a ‘Material Development and Supply Agreement’ in February – and closed yesterday at 47p. It is currently though more than 10% lower today on the back of a year-end trading update…
Despite Boxhill Technologies (BOX) announcing on 30 July that it still hoped to get its audited accounts out by 31 July, it has still failed to do so and this morning’s announcement of further delay looks pretty terminal to me. Let me gloat, sorry, I mean please allow me to explain...
I noted last Thursday that in the wake of updated Directors’ information (Messers Leith and Ritchie having missed out ten insolvencies) and the clarification over forecasts for Device Authority that one wonders what will come out next from AIM-listed Tern plc (TERN). Well, on Monday it announced it had appointed Allenby as Nomad. What I wonder is whether WH Ireland jumped or was pushed?
Shares in MBL Group (MUBL) closed approaching 18% lower yesterday on the back of a 3:54pm “Cancellation of Admission & Notice of GM” announcement, which followed a 6:04pm “AIM Notice and Update on Proposed Cancellation” announcement on Monday…
Historically a provider of health, safety, hygiene and environmental consultancy services, PHSC plc (PHSC) decided to diversify into security technology and associated systems. How do results for its year ended 31st March 2018 show things going?...
Hello, Share Cuddlers. August is a dead month for the kind of stock market news which causes a share to soar or crash. On the whole, values slowly decay. Not necessarily because companies are in trouble, but because volumes are low. And they're slow not for any interesting reason, but for the prosaic fact that many of the big traders have swapped their screens for a bucket and spade to keep their holidaying kids happy.
