|Share price nicely cleared £7 - albeit for the second time! Think we may well be seeing £8 by the time full year results released on the 14th of March. All imo/dyor.|
|It's certainly towards the adventurous end of my portfolio!|
|BUR listed by Hargreaves Lansdown as an idea for the adventurous end of a portfolio.|
|AIM shares were eligible for inclusion in an ISA from April 2015, so it's worth using whenever possible.|
|yes, me too but tax efficiently if I can.|
|I'm a long term investor rather than a trader so not too worried in the grand scheme of things.|
|It's an ill wind as they say. I sold some recently to crystalise a capital gain before the end of the tax year and hoped to buy back in my ISA at no extra cost. The share price continued upward making me wonder if my sale was a mistake.
This morning, my buy back at a lower price has restored my holding but inside my ISA so for whatever reason, I'm grateful for the opportunity.|
|And me yesterday.... but back in now.... bit nervous though. Hope things settle today.|
|Some tree shake. It got me out unwittinglyb|
|Market makers tree shake!|
|trident - I'll need to think about that!|
|full year results announced on 14 march according to web site|
|I thought this was supposed to be results day?|
|Jonwig - I think one of the problems with forced disclosure is that it enables large companies to see which small companies don't have backing.
Litigation funding is going to be controversial and attract criticism and proposals to change the law - and it will be driven by the behaviour of those at the margins.|
|Nicely put Jonwig. I try to invest as ethically as I can and I wouldn't buy into ambulance chasing companies. Burford are not in that category as they back claimants who they feel have a strong chance of winning, ie, they have strong justification for suing. But they are adding other strings to their bow too, which I like.|
|re the Lexology article (post #609), winsome is right; the situation applies at present only to class actions, and it's useful that the target company knows the plaintiffs have big resources backing them up.
In general, large companies often mistreat smaller companies (patent, copyright, contract infringement) knowing the smaller one can't afford to take action.
If the smaller one uses litigation finance, and that fact is disclosed, the larger is more likely to settle out of court. The financer has received less, but for less risk.
Burford has said, I believe, that it would be happy to disclose its involvement in a case if it were allowed to.|
|That's old news from last week. And it's not really an issue of much significance for Burford. This litigation financing is in relative infancy and Burford don't back the flimsy and opportunistic class actions that courts don't want to encourage.
So the share price rockets to 750p and falls back to level it was 9 trading days ago on low volumes. Why look for reasons for it? Just MM's trying to generate trades.
Hold and forget. I'm in for the long term. Their cases typically take 2 yrs to pay out. Not a business for short termists. Was almost tempted to sell some at 400p, 500p and recent levels and glad I didn't. Once we hit my target of 1200p in a few years' time (or sooner if the price keeps getting a bit ahead of itself) I'll think about selling half.|
|Could this be the reason for the sudden fall?
|Couldn't resist some more - showing as a sell|
|Big drop in last 30 mins - albeit on low volume|
|Talk about bad timing ! Long term view tho|
|Added to my position here today|
|Kirkie - thanks, yes it's on the website.|
I've got a calendar note that the results are Tue 14th March this year.|
