Asiamet Resources (ARS) is a great example of what happens to a share that the market has totally lost confidence in and how a major, company-making piece of news is likely to be needed in order to bring about any sort of change in sentiment.
Central Asia Metals (CAML) is one of those companies which I think is consistently undervalued by the market, and although it carries some degree of geo-political risk, I believe that too large a discount is applied for that.
Asiamet Resources (ARS) has been a very frustrating share to hold and in the past I have been less than impressed with the management, especially when it comes to the Aeturnum debacle at the start of this year.
I’m surprised to see Central Asia Metals (CAML) showing some share price weakness prior to the release of its interim results next week, as I’ve no reason to suspect that they will disappoint the market – in fact I would expect them to be good!
About eighteen months ago, I remember reading Gary Newman’s article here on Central Asia Metals (CAML). I started following the name and ended up buying some shares during the dog days in the U.K. market about a month ago. With a nice profit today, do I take it and run or keep on holding for more?
The AIM market is full of companies which have never managed to achieve anything of note despite operating for years, and often it isn’t that hard to spot when they are going to raise more funds imminently.
Central Asia Metals (CAML) is a company which I have followed for a number of years, and although the share price hasn’t seen much movement during that time, anyone who has followed my previous buy tips should still have done okay from it.
Banker Alex Molyneux argues that uranium is an attractive commodity that utilizes long-term contracts; however, that can result in pricing that doesn’t reflect the underlying product. Lately, uranium has been rising from mine closures, and due to the way, KazAtomProm and Cameco operate.
I can’t see Europa Metals (EUZ) shareholders being particularly pleased with the latest news from the company, and even less so with the 22% odd drop that it caused in the share price yesterday. This small AIM company is one that I haven’t exactly been a fan of in the past in its previous incarnation as Ferrum Crescent, and as is often the way with these companies that change name, and even management, not a lot tends to change with regards to performance...
When you find a resources company that has plenty of growth potential and you like both the fundamentals and the management team behind it, then it often makes sense to build up a long term position in it over a period of time.
Central Asia Metals (CAML) has been a favourite of mine for some time now and with this company I think it is very much a case of letting your winners run, as I can still see plenty of upside in the coming months and years.
If I’m being completely honest then I have to admit that I was somewhat annoyed when an RNS from Central Asia Metals (CAML) initially landed to say that trading in the shares had been temporarily suspended pending the acquisition of a large asset. That annoyance though was largely driven by a shorter term view, as shares in the company had been doing very well and the price was increasing steadily in the run up to the financial results, which were expected to be good and with yet another high yielding dividend to be paid. Alongside that copper was flying and had just topped the $3.10/lb level.
The lower end of the AIM market can be surprisingly predictable at times, especially when it comes to raising funds, so it often amazes me how many private investors get caught out when such news comes. That would certainly seem to have been the case with the recent fundraising activity at Ferrum Crescent (FCR) and the events leading up to that, even if many on the bulletin boards were in denial of what was coming.
There would appear to be an increasingly common correlation between CEOs who freely indulge in podcasts, interviews and courting private investors, and those same PIs getting screwed a short while later!
I was all set to recommend selling Arian Silver (AGQ) when it popped to 12p the other day for no apparent reason. It’s now 8p to sell and despite a lowly market cap of £2.8 million the shares are likely to trade much lower.
