|Nice 10% fall on the back of nothing. Burns was in and out no doubt.|
|Lovely statement from Brode's other interest, LTG this morning, which i mentioned here recently. All time high. They did a deal with RWS recently too. At risk of being filtered... Just sayin' ;)|

Ditching mines to make a mint - Hugo Duncan
It's all change at Aurum – and at 5.12p, now could be the time to get in.
New chairman David Williams, who turned building materials group Breedon into a £1billion company, has outlined plans to sell Aurum's gold and tungsten mining assets and shift into cybersecurity, changing the company's name to Shearwater in the process.
Williams has assembled a board including former Airbus UK boss Robin Southwell and Stephen Ball, former head of Lockheed Martin in the UK.
Aurum's new chief executive Mo Stevens is the former head of the cybersecurity business at Airbus.
The company now plans to acquire or take stakes in small cyber businesses and turn these minnows into major players.
An investment in Aurum/Shearwater is not without risks. But the management team looks worth a punt.
|Agree with all of that Jeffian. Yes his age is undoubtedly of note, hoping if he does retire that he has already made sufficient of a mark on LTG to pass it on in good hands.
Purely a hunch he might be inclined to stay longer at the less established company to take it further forward.
As I said I think LTG has still work to do and therefore carries higher risk than RWS, but I like everything I've seen to date.|
|I've had a quick look at LTG accounts and RNS's. Seems to follow a very similar 'MO' to RWS - cash in the bank (until latest acquisition), cash generative, growing by targeted acquisitions. Certainly the Brode style - although he's not Executive there - and he's been very successful at RWS. He is getting on a bit, though.........|
|Perhaps 'stable' was exaggerating a touch! :) Top man though, am trusting him to build LTG in a similarly successful way to this classy company|
|Thanks, microscope. I wasn't aware Brode had a "stable"! He's certainly done me proud with RWS so I'll take a look at LTG.|
|Put this up as my share for 2016 in post 473 on Jan 2nd, price has risen from about 220p to 325p - about 48% gain. Very happy with that, was never going to be a multibagger, just a strong outperforming quality share.Could not put anyone off staying with it for 2017, with further growth on the cards. For 2017 though going for the slightly riskier LTG. Another inmate of the Andrew Brode stable and will be putting a post on there fairly soon, at just over 34p, with my thoughts.|
