sphere25: Thank you Tole. A late one today with battling some ear issues and Tinnitus. It's giving me a good kicking so somewhat fatigued, on different timelines and behind of late so just do a bigger roundup here and then have a look at ALFA and some of the index moves. Fortunately current issues haven't fed through to trading with some of the very recent share posts (GATC, BWNG, DWF and a couple of trades in RCH) moving well and providing some opportunities for folk. It is also nice to see some of the more testing laggards like CAPD, SWG, SREI, HWG and RST actually significantly outperforming of late. SWG was the main balls up at one stage and now wondering whether to lob some or go for gold! Still, they're not all working. The likes of INL, IBST and EPWN continue to be stubborn and just don't want to re-rate. INL and IBST are significantly off pre-covid levels too so it's more disappointing. Just comment on XLM, because it is divisive. I can see XLM has come out with an iffy statement today. That is a veiled warning and why I only quickly nip in and out of that one outside of news (see previous posts there). Granted if their tone changes, it could be a different proposition but that's what they do. There is a history there of that kind of statement, which disappoints investors, and then makes you wonder if they are going to come out with another such iffy statement or a full on warning. It becomes hard to back them fully when they keep doing it year after year. Hopefully for longer term investors there, there is a significant change in tone and longer term reward. Overall though, nice markets and folk must be happy with how things have gone. As per previous posts, clearly have one eye on the US before making further moves and it looks like sideways there at the moment with the indices having tested support levels and bounced. As also previously stated, their markets bend but don't break (market is siding with the FED that inflation and therefore rates won't become an issue for stock markets as well as the crypto and nutty valued shares sell off's not feeding through via any negative forced leveraged effect to the main indices), which will keep us in the UK stable. It gets harder if there is bigger selling further down the line in the US because it will feed through here and that's when folk will have to make their minds up on how they're going to approach their portfolios. I usually have stops or raise stops, and if it hits, it hits and then it'll be all quicker trading if the market is less forgiving than this one. At the moment, you have so much leeway. Folk have been able to buy and almost not have to worry about the buy prices because it has been one way, with dips getting bought and so much share price strength. From a trading perspective, this has fed through to allowing folk to almost not use stops because it has almost been a given that the downside won't last long and prices will bounce back. It's a dangerous mentality to have once the market does get more challenging because the downside will be bigger and last longer, which has huge implications for not just normal share trades but the use of leverage in particular. It becomes so important to tighten things up and be very disciplined. I know there are alot of seasoned pro's in this market, but this is the new world with an army of newcomers. We can see from the likes of AJB today, the average of new investors being younger and alot less experienced so hopefully we can all share some experience with them. I'll have to split this post and move onto ALFA and the index moves. All imo DYOR
sphere25: Yes, someone came in and lobbed four blocks of 100k @78p and then there were a few further sells later so that resistance is clearly on the minds of investors. Perhaps that is the market saying we're not quite convinced that the story has changed enough to justify a further re-rating higher yet. It's a wait and see, bid has hit 80 again but still not managing to push through yet. From a shorter term view, tend to lob and bank profits if a stock keeps bumping its head against a certain mark. The overall longer trend here is still down, but it's one to watch from both short and longer term perspectives because of the rating, balance sheet strength and cash generation. If it doesn't crack resistance, wouldn't mind bouncing around between 60-80. Be prepared for all eventualities. EDIT: 25k block buyer at 80. Let the battle commence. All imo DYOR
togglebrush: Brief EXTRACT from Shares Magazine article. ' investors were concerned about the timing of new contracts after the company said revenue growth would be weighted to the second half of this year. ' The takeaway seemed to be that several new large contract implementations would take longer than initially expected and this could pressure profitability in 2018.
