|More on the ongoing Nutella safety discussion..
|Adverse press comment over recent days might well serve to temporarily affect the PAL share price,possibly significantly so.The "scare stories" contain nothing new however;they have just been deemed newsworthy,with Nutella, possibly unfairly,singled out for special attention.
Palm oil is the most consumed vegetable oil on the planet, appearing in just under half of all packaged products found in supermarkets.
It is the most efficient source of vegetable oil and its use is expanding rapidly – which is a threat to habitats in tropical rainforests, where it grows.
The fears that palm oil cause cancer are due to compounds called glycidyl fatty acide esters (GE), that are produced when palm oil is heated above 200 degrees celsius.
The oil is heated above this temperature during the processing of many foods, but Nutella has received the bulk of negative press.
Demand for palm oil is skyrocketing worldwide. The recent spike in use by the US snack food industry is due in large part to Palm Oil being used as a replacement for controversial trans fats.One might draw the conclusion that the strong upward trend in consumption will continue .
Possibly any significant short term weakness in the share price will present an opportunity.|
|Nice informative thread Muddy.. I wish I'd found it earlier. My entry price is double yours so maybe I'll hang on for the 14p :-).. assuming everything goes to plan that is, and we eventually get to the Mirabaud target.
PAL is one of 14 stocks I bought in the new year.. nearly all of them for the potential shown in the chart, but also helped by reading useful threads such as this.
I'm revamping my portfolio after a couple of fairly disastrous years when I abandoned my basic principles .. ie listening to too much bb and other hype, holding on to stocks when the chart says sell etc etc. New year new beginning for me. (still holding BYOT btw, for my sins :-!)
|Thanks shrout for your post which is the first since I opened the thread last May.
My target is 14 pence,in line with earlier valuations,although I will probably exit at 6.5 pence which will be a nice uplift from my 1.25 entry point.|
|Looks like KLK showing interest again.Very leaky.|
|Pleased to say I bought a small stake in these last week mb. Your 28 Nov prediction looks to be well founded :-)
Wouldn't have bought without EPO's commitment to environmental sustainability, which appears to be much better than some palm oil companies still engaged in destruction of primary rainforest.|
|This boring one is turning to be a good one
May continue for long time|
|As suggested,PAL is now demonstrating relative strength with the share price recovering towards
2015 levels.Lots more to come in my opinion,for we could well see a 100% ++ rise through 2017.|
|I wander what happening??
Whatever it is let hope it last
|agreed. I bought many Russian coins last year hoping|
|Happy to hold for the more to come.
|PAL looking interesting again at just below 2 pence to buy.
Maybe not the most exciting holding in my portfolio,but imo there is tremendous medium term value on offer here.
(Plus I would suggest that the next movement in the share price will be strongly upwards.)|
|Extracted from the Audited accounts for the year ended Sept 30th,as published yesterday.
"The construction of this mill is significant for the communities in which we operate and for the Liberian Government. Given the recent downturn in prices for commodities and oil & gas the Liberian Government has put a greater emphasis on agriculture and is providing all necessary assistance to the LPD Group to ensure all imports for "agro-processing" are free of any import duties."
As the continued support of the Liberian government is crucial to PAL's success the fact that they are focusing,to a greater extent,on their green economy augurs well.|
|People forget that house broker Mirabaud accorded a target price of 14 pence to PAL and stressed that this was conservative.
Add to this the progress achieved since their review and this company remains a wondrous bargain,imo.
"The company will focus on the West African and European market, both of which have an advantage for shipping, and are burgeoning in terms of market demand. By remaining focused on developing environmentally stable palm oil, outside of virgin forest and producing an accredited, sustainable palm oil, the company is a top contender for older markets as well.
Liberia is well placed to have significant palm oil production and be a successful West Africa palm oil producer, and Equatorial Palm Oil has tapped into its potential. As the company grows alongside the country, it stands to reason that Equatorial Palm Oil could be in operations for generations to come."
The "icing on the cake" though remains the fact that PAL could well be acting as stalking horse for global parent company KLK;establishing a viable and acceptable operation in Liberia prior to being seriously scaled up and with PAL then bought out at around the above valuation mark.
The Directors(of KLK) think so too,having invested heavily at much higher prices.|
"Agreement reached for 1,500ha of new plantings on Palm Bay estate."|
|The value here is slowly evaporating.
Shares acquired at circa 1.4pence now look well bought.
Even so,I would still consider them a strong buy at up to 2 pence,for there is much to go for in terms of current value and future implementation of their ambitious growing strategy.|
|Palladium on fire.|
|UNDER !.5 PENCE TO BUY INTO PAL !!
Timing is everything and I would recommend this micro cap as a speculative investment whilst the price is right at the lower end of its trading range.
Sub 1.5 pence to buy.
