Hiring Out Gear Is Ashtead's Game and it could Attract Big Business from a Beleaguered Building Trade

Hello Share Fans. Over the years the big tool-renter Ashtead Group (AHT) has been a big money spinner for me. Though a few years ago, I took the view that what goes up usually always comes down. So I sold the lot. Needless to say, that folly sparked yet another rally. I’m still shy of the shares, though. For the same reason: that good things don’t last forever. However, the firm’s latest numbers look to prove me wrong yet again.

This Bouncy Broker Rings the Bell for Results and Is Worth Sounding Out

Hello Share Pickers. This old punter has just become a customer of the broker AJ Bell (AJB). I know nothing about its competence in being an ordinary self-select share broker, so I’ll stick with my present providers, but my financial advisor Alice rates the company highly as a customer-friendly and efficient platform for bonds and similar financial products.

Inflation, Inflation, Inflation. That's Why I'm Staying (Mostly) in Cash.

Hello Share Trudgers. There’s a feeling in the city that shares will soon rally. A few well-known analysts have said that British equities are cheap compared to the world. And indeed the Footsie has been creeping up. But this old punter believes that - apart form a few lucky sectors - British shares will stall again. Here’s why I’m staying in cash.

Just a Thought: Take Look at Just. It might Just See a Rising Share Price

Hello Share Wallowers. If you’ve never read Liar’s Poker and The Big Short may I seriously recommend you do so. We all have a tendency to think that every financial company employee knows their subject backwards and keeps on top of trends. But these two books don’t agree. However, one of the many financial outfits that does seem to keep on top of things is Just Group (JUST).

Consider Following the Rainbow if You're Looking for a Promising Mining Play

Hello Share Mates. A perky outfit that sounds a bit like something from Lord of the Rings is worth a peek. Rainbow Rare Earths (RBW) deals in some pretty unusual commodities. More about them later, but we’re talking about a pretty exciting mining operation here.

Yellow Knees in the Fifties Remind Me this Penny Share Company could Be a Winner

Hello Share Bunnies. When I was a little boy in the middle of the last century (eek!), there were a lot of classmates with bright yellow knees and elbows. The school nurse used iodine as a healing lotion. Iodine is still an important chemical today and with some analysts predicting a return to a bull market in 2023, a company which might jump the gun and see a share rise specialises in iodine, it’s called Iofina (IOF).

Tullow's Share Rise Hasn't Kept Pace with its Bigger Rivals but that Could Change

Hello Share Collectors. Like all oil producing combos, Tullow Oil (TLW) will do well out of the lofty price of oil. Even if it has just reduced its production aim of 60,000-64,000 barrels of oil a day to 60,000-62,000 barrels. It’s not much of a reduction and, given the sturdy current values for the black stuff, I don’t think the share price has risen as far as it should do, when compared to its larger rivals Shell (SHEL) and BP (BP.).
