I start by mentioning tomorrow's activities. Many, many thanks to the more than 300 souls who have donated. If I have not reminded you enough and you have forgotten to sponsor the rogue bloggers for Woodlarks there is still time HERE. Then I mention a knobhead called Robbie. Then it is onto Odey share overhangs, mentioning Shanta (SHG) en passant, IOG (IOG), Wray and Alliance Pharma (APH) in days gone by, Canadian Overseas Petroleum Limited (COPL) and finally two minnows on the brink of going under, I suspect: Deepverge (DVRG) and Microsaic (MSYS).
Shares in AIM-listed Shanta Gold (SHG) shot higher yesterday after the company announced that it had received approaches regarding the potential takeover of the company. Could this be the start of a bidding frenzy in the bombed out Gold mining sector?
I see that NED Robin Fryer at AIM-listed Shanta Gold (SHG) has dumped his entire holding of the company’s stock. And CEO of Ariana Resources has been cashing in on options – and selling. Should we read either as a cue to follow suit and sell?
AIM-listed Shanta Gold (SHG) has announced another director share purchase which looks to me to be more of a sell signal than a buy signal. I previously highlighted (HERE) that CEO Toby Bradbury had changed his mind about supporting the recent fundraising by ponying up for 500,000 shares at the offer price of 6.5p – instead completing half of promised purchase in the market at the reduced price of 5.65p. Today we learn that NED Robin Fryer has put his hand in his pocket to the tune of 45,000 shares at 6.2p.
Gold seems to be in an uptrend so maybe it is time to get a bit of exposure to the gold sector once more? But how? We adsked ten writers connected to this site and/or speaking at UK Investor show on Saturday if they had to bet the ranch on one stock what would it be?
AIM Listed gold producer Shanta (SHG) is in production and should be generating cash from its New Luika mine in Tanzania At June 30thit had $21 million in the kitty yet onOctober 5thit announced that it had secured a new $4 million loan facility from a director and was “in discussions with additional providers of working capital financing facilities to meet its short term working capital requirements during the ramp up phase of the New Luika Gold Mine.” What on earth is going on?
