Manic-Depressive Markets

10 Mar 2015 @ 20:01
“Like any high-stakes business, the highs and lows can make you a manic-depressive person, if you weren’t that way to start with.” Sounds like someone commenting on the stock market – and anyone involved with it – doesn’t it? One day everyone is euphoric. The next, they are ready to admit themselves to the nearest […]

The FTSE, Maxwell Smart & Roger Bannister

06 Mar 2015 @ 00:09
The FTSE failed once again to soar about the coveted 7,000 mark. However, it closed at yet another record high again today, finishing at 6,961.14. As Maxwell Smart, the infamously inept spy from the mid-1960s TV program Get Smart, would say, “Missed it by that much!” If you weren’t around in the mid-60’s, ask your […]

The Weird World of Barclays Banking

03 Mar 2015 @ 21:33
The share price of Barclays (LSE:BARC) fell 3.22% on the LSE today, closing at 254.30, dragging the nearly record-setting FTSE 100 index from its lofty heights of 02 March back to 6,889.13. The decline today was clearly attributable to two things: the release of the bank’s final results for the year ended 31 December 2014 […]

FTSE Weighed Down By Glencore

03 Mar 2015 @ 20:23
The share price of Glencore (LSE:GLEN) dropped by 3.11% in trading today, closing at 291.20. Since Glencore acquired Xstrata in May 2013 the impact of picking up the coal mining assets has combined with the broader world economic conditions to weigh on the company’s FY 2014 results. Taking the good with the bad On the […]

FTSE, NASDAQ and Russell Hit New Highs

02 Mar 2015 @ 19:10
Lately the U.S. and UK markets have been getting excitinger and excitinger. I know that’s bad grammar, but I just can’t help it. It’s exciting! We’ve been watching the FTSE 100 as we promised. (Obviously we would do that anyway.) But we can’t ignore the NASDAQ and the Russell 2000, both of which are reaching […]

FTSE Sets New Records on Way to 7,000!

24 Feb 2015 @ 17:03
I’m sitting here watching the clock with one eye and watching the FTSE with the other – just like everyone else involved in any way with the London Stock Market today. Observers have been cautiously optimistic watching the FTSE get closer to the almost incomprehensible height of 7,000. But, lest we forget, in about five […]

The ARM Around Apple's Shoulder

11 Feb 2015 @ 20:59
ARM Holdings (LSE:ARM) share price is up 2.94% today and, in a moment, I shall tell you why. But first, I would like to say that ARM is one of the most fascinating and well-conceived companies that I know. I and my ADVFN colleagues devote a significant amount of copy to ARM Holdings – and […]

Resetting BP for 2015

03 Feb 2015 @ 16:04
“We have now entered a new and challenging phase of low oil prices through the near and medium term. Our focus must now be on resetting BP.” ~ CEO Bob Dudley. A funny thing happened on the way to the office this morning. I read that BP (LSE:BP.) (NYSE:BP) had released its final quarterly report […]
