ASOS – Evil Knievil STILL Wrong to short the shares at 3,334p + College Group PR, sheep shagging and pornography

26 Mar 2013 @ 18:49
Some folks think that I am the lackey of bear raider Evil Knievil, writing to order to suit his needs. Au contraire. He does not work for me and vice versa and given how insufferable the old boy can be when he gets it right, I – like many – take a perverse pleasure when […]

The old “We are vulnerable to a bid” line – ref Cupid

24 Mar 2013 @ 10:39
If I had £100 for every time that in my 25 year career that a CEO told me “our low share price makes us vulnerable to a bid” I would right now be sitting in a luxury mansion in the Bahamas.  Very few CEOs whose company’s shares are on the up say this. But guess […]

Enables IT (formerly Nexus) what is going on?

21 Mar 2013 @ 14:31
Shares in AIM listed tech stock Enables IT (LSE:EIT) formerly Nexus have zoomed ahead over the past few days and now trade at 32p valuing the business at £4.75 million. Notwithstanding that bounce this is still one of my least successful tips from my years at t1ps. At least I take some consolation from my […]

Imagination Technologies IMS – Great company but the wrong price

17 Mar 2013 @ 11:18
I have always believed that Imagination Technologies (LSE:IMG) is a good company. And you have to pay for quality. But you can overpay for quality and right now that is what investors in this stock are being asked to do. The company issued a detailed trading statement on 12 March which should not have provided […]

Blinkx – Options Grant, Knickers, twist

17 Mar 2013 @ 08:53
I note an announcement the other day that Blinkx (LSE:BLNX) had granted yet another 1.5 million share options to its senior execs. The subject of executive share options always seems to cause some folks to get their knickers in a twist. I am not so sure. Firstly 1.5 million shares is a lot of shares […]

Cupid: Great Results and Massive Director Buy yet shares tank – what’s up (or down?)

10 Mar 2013 @ 16:57
Shares in Cupid (LSE:CUP), the AIM-listed online dating business have tanked since some unhelpful media coverage in January. But calendar 2012 results last week should have silenced the critics. They did not. Neither did the CEO splashing out c£1 million to buy 865,000 shares at 114p. This is bizarre. What is going on? I tipped […]

IQE - Cheap as chips

28 Feb 2013 @ 21:18
In November I commented that shares in AIM-listed IQE plc (LSE:IQE) – a company headquartered in a land where no-one has ever, ever molested a sheep which provides products and services to the global semiconductor industry – remained a buy at a then 28.75p share price. By the middle of this month the shares were […] – Profits Warning

20 Feb 2013 @ 20:18
I last wrote on AIM-listed printing company (LSE:PDC) following its interim results in November. The shares then traded at 32p, but are currently down at 28.25p following the company announcing today that softer than anticipated European trading and increased marketing expenditure on new initiatives mean “that it is now likely that the company will […]

Free tip of the week: Buy Forbidden Technologies at 25p

20 Feb 2013 @ 17:03
Widows, orphans, welfare scroungers who need a guaranteed £200 a month to feed their horse, those looking for safe dividends, yield and asset backing…look away. This stock is not for you. It is uber-speculative. But the risk reward play-off is very attractive indeed. AIM listed Forbidden Technologies (LSE:FBT)  could go bust. But I doubt it […]

Special Sunday Report: The quirks of tech accounting and valuation – 15 stocks analysed as buys or sells

16 Feb 2013 @ 18:14
Tech stocks are different. Well that is what those who promote them say. It will be different this time. We can capitalise whatever expenses we want so claim that we are making profits. A PE of 137 is justified because of our growth prospects. Our technology will change the world. So we must be massively […]
