|As Index funds buy got to be at least 20p upside on FTSE inclusion|
|RTO made it back to FTSE100 then!
Incidentally, re-bought last week @ just below 237p and now looking for c260p.|
|RTO was at position 99 at the end of last week (225.7p) so FTSE100 re-entry becoming a possibility. My only concern is that the share price probably still needs to put in a correction as the Dec 2016 drop back to 204.5p doesn't really qualify...but then maybe the impressive rate of growth has effectively led to a breakout.
Should have probably held for 250p but having made a fair bit of profit on this already and broader market looks to be in correction mode sold out @ 228.9p.|
|who is carefully picking up stock in SRO at the moment? they are trying to keep under the radar. anybody heard anything?|
|SMA. Giles Clarke's next RTO.|
|Today's news should be positive for share price going forward. RTO used to be a FTSE100 company about a dozen years or so ago when CEO Sir Clive Thompson (Mr 20%) was in charge. At the beginning of this week it was knocking on the door in position 105 and the company has generally been sure-footed and growing for several years now.
I am a holder and targeting c250p before a correction of the gains from 24 Aug 2015 (138.7p:236.6p for +70.6% thus far).|
|It was a bit of a surprise to see ONZ suspended at the start of this week, for failure to implement its investing policy, despite having invested in over 19 companies. That shouldn't have been cause for a 'nineteen nervous breakdown'!
Is AIM tightening its interpretation of the rules I wonder?

|The only other Adam Reynolds cash shell I'm aware of is his ISDX investment vehicle HubCo Investments Ltd ... but I'm not sure what's happened to it -
|Share prophets were talking about big sofa being reversed into another Adam Reynolds cash shell. Any idea which company it is ?|
the shuffle man
|I agree Luminoso, a real disappoint, as Big Sofa looked to have great multibagger potential.
Chat this week on LSE though suggests that its RTO into NEW could potentially be reactivated later, so fingers crossed.
If not, then we should certainly keep an eye out for Big Sofa RTOing somewhere else.|
|A blow to hopes for NEW's reverse into Big Sofa. No details on the complication but something has been discovered in NEW's legacy closet. Real pity, I was looking forward to that RT. Have to wait to get more details.
|Just like the old days: rabbit out of the hat.
Much to comment about, many dubious comments, many pumpers & dumpers caught out.
However cash flow problem sorted for the short term.
Minty lives to fight another day, the project looks good now.
The reality is, the old company was under capitalised, had the oil rich project in the wrong geology & location.
Minty is a great wheeler dealer & successive j/v's failed due to lack of cash with the other halves. Then the oil crash.
Unlike most failures in oil Minty has developed an alternative & grand project with great partners, which may, just may, benefit from the crash.
He will be the great survivor if it thrives, from the wreck of Eneg.
It now looks like he may be well on the way to pulling it off.|
Alan Minty deserves credit for having secured funds at about four times NUOG's recent share price.

£700.000 raised at a great price for the dead in the water share price
Caught a lot on the pump & dump, but the prospects are much better now on this one.
The project might now happen & might be affordable for the company.
|Sadly I have lost far too much on this one to get back in today.
This company is well under water & will need to raise cash to take it's part of the project forward.
It was really thought to be on the way out any day & Minty, as ever has pulled the rabbit out of the hat one more time.
A great character.
However I do still have a few left !|

|On 3i.Re NU-oil & gas.
Not clear if this is accurate, something afoot ?
I see the boys from New World Oil and Gas now hold more than the Minty clan and enough to call an EGM. Phil Terry looks like an activist. Some fun to watch at last?|
|Something has changed in a big way this week at Nu-oil & gas.
Looks like a reverse t/o ?
No news at all & a very strange trading week.
Any hints ?|
|Many Tx Hedgehog 100 for your v. helpful reply.|
|Hi Maytrees, and thanks for flagging up LVRT (Levrett).
To address your question, a RTO suspension is usually a very positive event if the RTO goes through, as it generally adds significant value.
A recent example is VLOX (outlined in the post above yours), which returned to the market as VLTY at the end of June after a RTO priced at five times the suspension price: which was a real gain, not just down to a share price consolidation.
Further back, in May 2014 ONE was suspended for a RTO, and returned a month later as BOOM at double the price.
In fact buying in just ahead of a suspension can be a good strategy if you expect a positive outcome, as the share price can be depressed beforehand by investors who don't want to be locked in, and/or are unsure of the outcome, creating a buying opportunity.
And just the potential of a suspension can create such an opportunity, even if the suspension doesn't actually happen.
However, the situation is less clear cut if there has been a very strong run up in the share price just prior to suspension.
It is possible for expectations to be too high, for the shell to be overvalued, and for it to trade lower after the RTO.
But then again it could be a deserved rerating upwards, for a shell which has previously been oversold.
You will need to assess what is fair value for the shell, and its likely deal.
And that can be very subjective and speculative, given the lack of info. you are likely to have on the RTO prior to any suspension.|
