Quite simply, Sir Nigel warns that Destiny Pharma (DEST) will go bust if it stays on AIM. If it delists he reckons it might survive. This is no penny dreadful. Destiny is a properly managed company and Rudd is a well-respected BSD so these words will hurt.

The View From The Montana Log-Cabin As Gold Threatens All-Time High

Gold closed the week at $2,410 – a good improvement on last week’s $2,389 and back over the $2,400 mark. Indeed, it closed around 1% off its all-time high.

Did You Back the Black Horse? Stay in the Saddle for More (Possibly much More) to Come.

Hello Share Scramblers. ‘Misery!’ quoth my nephew Daniel in the fair city of Doncaster last October. “I bought Lloyds (LLOY) shares at 60p and now they’re only 40p’. ‘Fear not’ responded his favourite uncle. “Buy some more, for they’ll be back at 60p. by the summer’. His favourite uncle, though crippled with age, was right.
