Lighthouse Group Disgraceful Directors – Tell Them No!

Jul 11 2012 @ 05:17
Two days ago the IFA group Lighthouse (LSE:LGT) announced that it wished to delist its shares from AIM and operate as a private company. The stock now trades with a share price of 2.375p having more than halved since the news. This is a total disgrace and shareholders can reject the proposal (it needs 75% […]

Centamin, Egypt and a fatwa for myself and Clem Chambers of ADVFN

Jul 09 2012 @ 15:46
Clem Chambers, the CEO of ADVFN, assured me that I could write what I liked here. The idea of being able to write with total freedom had a certain novel appeal and so far I have tested him with the odd swear word but not a lot else. Tonight as he and I both receive […]

Barclays: Is the yield and asset backing real?

Jul 08 2012 @ 07:25
A few folks seem to think that my Barclays bearishness is wrong and that this stock is as cheap as chips.  Presumably that would be chips from the Casino that is Barclays Capital (LSE:BARC).  We shall see what happens to the share price on a one year view. But to counter the points of the […]

Barclays Target Price Dunno but the share is a sell

Jul 07 2012 @ 09:54
I have not got every stock market call right over the past two years. I am as aware as anyone of some of my AIM buy tips that have not done well in this horrid market. But on my big macro shouts, calling the banks as a sell with Barclays (LSE:BARC) as my conviction sell […]

Avanti Communications – Buy or Sell ahead of Hylas 2 Launch

Jul 06 2012 @ 02:48
I first tipped, Avanti Communications (LSE:AVN), the AIM listed satellite operator years ago on at 116p. Its share price almost hit £9 ahead of the launch of its first HYLAS satellite the year before last. The shares have since slumped back to a low of c240p but are now back at 351p (valuing Avanti […]

ECB and Bank of England behind the curve as usual – both are useless

Jul 05 2012 @ 13:07
I am not sure which is more hapless and hopeless, the ECB or the Bank of England. It is a close run thing and today’s actions by the pair did nothing to clarify the situation. The Bank of England announced £50 billion more Quantitative Easing. Ok, so QE has not worked to date so let’s […]

Allez Le French Property Price Crash!

Jul 05 2012 @ 05:39
Sacre Bleu! It was just a couple of weeks ago that I warned HERE that French property prices would ( like those across much of Europe) crash. And it seems as if New French President Hollande is looking to  make my prediction come true rather sooner than expected. Today comes news of proposed (i.e. it will […]

Anglesey Mining – Surely a Snip Despite Uppity Indians?

Jul 04 2012 @ 15:27
I see today that some native peoples are causing a bit of disruption for Toronto Stock Exchange listed commodity play Labrador Iron Mines (TSE:LIM), throwing up barricades whichare causing (fairly trivial) disruption to operations. This news might impact on the share price of AIM listed Anglesey Mining. But that could well be a trading as […]

Why Greeks should not pay tax & Evil Knievil’s false assumptions

Jul 02 2012 @ 14:55
I am, as you may have gathered by now, spending some time in, my favourite hot and bankrupt country, Greece. The infamous short seller Evil Knievil, and I, are both the sons of classical scholars and Evil seems to have got it into his head that I am spending my time here checking out either […]

Barclays Chairman Quits – Not Enough: Diamond Next

Jul 02 2012 @ 09:01
The chairman of Barclays Bank (LSE:BARC ) has resigned. I had never heard of Mr Marcus Agius until today and bet that you had not either. He says that he is the bankster to take the rap for the LIBOR rate fixing scandal.  The word bollocks springs to mind. Mr Agius was not in any way […]
