OMG! (Opportunity 4 Material Gains)

A Premium Blog…………………………………….. See Newsletters

Date: Friday 26th September

Time 5.30pm

Location: All Bar One

Attendees:  Jon Lev/ Andy Hore


Jon –  As I like to remind you not only am I better looking I have also had a more varied city career than you. Analyst, Journalist,  Fund Management and corporate broker so have seen how small cap stock value is  built and destroyed  from  a range of perspectives.  Some good stocks do not perform well for a variety of reasons;  badly placed, the investment  opportunity not well described and management arrogance .  While some shocking stocks do really well…….. for a time and either get lucky or crash back.

Andy-   A consistent track record shows that if you follow the newsflow on the slightly more mature stocks the risk of extreme volatility is greatly reduced . The trigger is usually recognising the importance of the newsflow on the business plan, which needs a memory.  I am not sure your sequence of jobs amount to a career.

Jon-   I see you did not deny that I am better looking.  You are missing the point as there are often non-financial indicators that a company is amount to flash or crash. A crude one is directors dealing , un-usual volume and perhaps the appointment of a bigger or more appropriate  broker .

Andy  – Astute investors  who subscribe to OMG ! at the bargain first year price of £45 will expect more than one liners on company appraisals. They will want facts; the debt position, turnover growth, variance on profit margins and an understanding of cashflow. I can accept that sometimes a company has increased investment which increases short term losses for medium term gain.  If you are so good looking why do you not have a photo on this blog?

Jon –  Clearly,  I accept that facts do need interpretation  and the wider the reference points used the better the conclusion are likely to be.

Andy-  likes make sure that OMG !  succinctly gives a appraisals of the business risk as well as the market intelligence that can make the timing for buying and selling.
