aspringo: Shouldn't average down but have done a Woodford. My buys show as sells, just for info.Fingers crossed this isn't the basket case the share price reflects.
paleje: Tempus in today's Times says its a buy. When Circassia came to the market in 2014 at 310p a share, it was seen as the owner of a promising but unproven treatment for allergies, including hay fever. En route the company paid £239 million for a couple of companies making treatments for asthma and pulmonary disease, raising fresh funds at 288p a share. The first widescale trials of that allergy treatment for people allergic to cats have been an unmitigated disaster. Put simply, sufferers given the treatment did well but so did those given a placebo. This is frankly baffling. Circassia is giving up trials of the same treatment for sufferers of hay fever and those allergic to ragweed, though two others are sufficiently well advanced that there is no point in abandoning them. The conclusion of these may give an idea why the feline trials went so badly and whether the treatment has any value whatsoever. This leaves the company with those asthma products, several of which are on the market. If the study was baffling, the market’s response was equally so. Circassia shares lost two thirds of their value, falling 179¼p to 91p. This gives it a market capitalisation of £257 million. Tot up the cost of those acquisitions and the cash in the bank and you get to £379 million. This suggests that the fall in the price is wildly overdone, assuming those businesses bought have the value ascribed to them, with the original allergy treatment assigned no value whatsoever. Any biotech company is always going to be speculative, but this looks a good gamble. MY ADVICE Buy WHY Risky, but the share price fall looks overdone
battlebus2: I'd be a buyer philander, when the cat allergy comes to market the share price will be treble todays imv.
miamigo: thecynical That's because last Feb they released this RNS, which subsequently came to nothing, but did, as you say, cause a flurry of interest: Capricorn Resources PLC 07 February 2005 Capricorn Resources plc ('the Company') Statement regarding a possible acquisition. The Company notes the recent increase in its share price. The Company is in discussions that may or may not lead to an acquisition that would constitute a substantial and a related party transaction, but not a reverse transaction under the AIM Rules. A further announcement will be made in due course. This information is provided by RNS The company news service from the London Stock Exchange
pork belly: thanks for sharing that sharecropper. the value is "substantial" according to the RNS dated 07 Feb 05 (assuming its the same deal of course) RNS Number:3035I Capricorn Resources PLC 07 February 2005 Capricorn Resources plc ("the Company") Statement regarding a possible acquisition. The Company notes the recent increase in its share price. The Company is in discussions that may or may not lead to an acquisition that would constitute a substantial and a related party transaction, but not a reverse transaction under the AIM Rules.

buddabar: looking at most of the company share prices where Brian Moritz has directorship, my opinion and by the charts they have all made money soon after listing on Aim or LSE stocks for companies share price approimate increase and decrease cir 2p - 12p now down to 4.5p during past 24 months can started a high of 15p now priced at 5p during past 12 months mtlb now priced at 256p this stock has been a steady gainer/sp has fluctuated NBR now 20p - 55p now sitting @ 35.5p PIR was 33p now 15p 8 month period sfu was 5p now 26p 32 month period down from a high of 42p zar 1.5p reached hight of 6p now is 3p another faller from a high wnl extream high now in suspension......... zba opened and reached a high of 2.75p now at low of 1.5p this says it all for anyone thinking to invest in this great team, take your chance looks like they have finace companies behind them, all the works to be honest, and all these companies must do some kind of deals behind closed doors, makes me wonder who they gonna rip off next to give great gains to, who is who in this TANK of BIG fish????? dodgy dealings i see hear... Maybe im wrong maybe im right who knows, but all have one pattern in common they all rise sharply then crawl back down and stay down with exception of course.... dyor i will be doing more
sharecropper: My uninformed view is as follows: this company is close to an incredibly successful deal pipe - Edmonds/Groves, who are working very hard in Africa, and who have solid contacts, and who are being offered deals - good and bad - left right and centre. WNL is an example of a good one, carefully put together. CFM is also busy. I have also heard rumours of assets and deals being put into CIR, some very valuable ones, because they don't fit anywhere else in the stable. I do not believe that the backers of CFM etc can afford to have a dog of a stock languishing in their stable. It would look terrible in the market. And we know they are spinning off a number of opportunities into new, soon-to-be listed companies. How would they fare if the credibility of the directors was shot through. Market logic tells me this will not happen. But other indicators also tell me that. We also know CIR are looking at an acquisition (or more than one, depending who you talk to). It is just a matter of time. But let me make one thing clear - I have lost a lot and made a lot in shares like this over the past 5 years. I am no expert, but I respect the opinions of certain people I ask advice of, and when I take a view, I back it. I bought a lot of CFM at 3.5p, when everyone I know was rushing to sell, and now they are selling at 11p. It's not rocket science, but neither is it widows' and orphans investing. I am prepared to lose all my investment. I also see SFU, another one in the stable, has taken a battering. I sold at 41p, and I have watched it fall and still do not intend to buy back into it yet, although I will do if it dips below 25p. And re today's drop in CIR - shaking the tree. There is nothing in the pipeline that could possibly have that impact on the share price (it's not like a well they have drilled has come up empty) It may fall further, and I may buy more. This isn't supposed to be a scientific answer, by the way, just the way my mind works. Best regards, Sharecropper.
superflyer: Thanks to Superflyer heres the article in Full. Not very exciting and does not mention 50 million! But Stuff will be out soon!! CAPRICORN SEARCHES FOR AN 'OPPORTUNITY' By Rebecca Bream Published: March 26 2005 02:00 | Last updated: March 26 2005 02:00 Capricorn Resources, one of Phil Edmonds' stable of exploration vehicles, was listed on Aim in 2003 and has a market capitalisation of about £3.8m, writes Rebecca Bream. So far, though, it has no assets, except for a small cash balance. According to a statement last September, Capricorn's aim is to "locate resource-based opportunities and mining projects at or beyond early-stage development in the area north of the Tropic of Capricorn in Southern Africa, with an emphasis on countries including Angola, the Congo, Mozambique and Zambia". The group said "finding the right deal has taken significantly more time than previously anticipated" and it would step up its efforts to secure assets. The lack of progress had caused Capricorn's share price to drift down last year to a level of about 2p, but at the start of February the shares jumped almost fourfold to 7¾p on the back of rumours that an acquisition was imminent. On February 7, the company said it was "in discussions that may or may not lead to an acquisition that would constitute a substantial and a related party transaction, but not a reverse transaction under the Aim rules". That was the last the market heard. The shares have dropped back to 5¾p - still valuing Capricorn at nearly three times higher than it was in January.
dwelshmafia: in the papers this week about CAPRICORN.IT GOES CAPRICORN SEARCHES FOR AN far,though,it has no assets,except for a small cash balance.according to a statement last september,capricorn's aim is to "locate resource-based opportunities and mining projects at or beyond early-stage development in the area north of the tropic of capricorn in southern africa,with the emphasis on countries including angola,the congo,mozambique and zambia".RUMOURS OF AN ACQUISITION IS A MATTER OF WEEKS AWAY,AND WOULD VALUE CAPRICORN AT OVER £50M,BUT THIS HAS NOT BACKED BY SUBSTANTIAL PROOF.IF NEWS OF ANY ACQUISITION WOULD SEND CAPRICORN'S SHARE PRICE TO NEW just goes on and on ,hey but bloody good news share price should rocket after this prees news.
miamigo: This was posted on the WNL board. Looks like Phillipe is pretty busy at the moment. Not sure if any of these goings on will have any effect on CIR, but worth a read nontheless. Drilling for Oil? Start Prospecting in London: Matthew Lynn March 16 (Bloomberg) -- Where is the best place in the world to look for oil? Under the Indian Ocean? In some of the remote regions of Africa? Down around some of those countries with long, tricky-to- spell names that used to be part of the Soviet Union? No. The best place to prospect for oil right now is London. The London stock market is going through a speculative frenzy over oil exploration stocks. Investors are piling into stocks based on little more than rumors and hope. Shares are being sold on the back of the purported expertise of developers, not business plans. Is this just another dot-com style bubble? Or is there a real investment opportunity underneath the hoopla and the hype? For a flavor of oil mania 2005, here are two examples. On March 14, Afren Plc., a new oil and gas company, listed its shares on the London exchange at 20 pence each. By lunchtime, they had jumped to more than 56 pence, almost tripling in just a few hours. The London-based company raised 8 million pounds ($15.3 million) in its initial public offering. Afren has a starry pedigree. The directors include Rilwanu Lukman, a former president and secretary-general of OPEC. Another director, Egbert Imomoh, used to run the Nigerian operations of Royal Dutch/Shell Group. The company clearly has people on its team who know a lot about oil. White Nile Investors in White Nile, however, might regard those gains as relatively paltry. Last month, the company soared in value. White Nile is an exploration company set up by the former England cricket star Phil Edmonds. Listed on the London market at the start of February, the shares increased more than 11-fold in a week before being suspended. The Financial Times reported that the U.K. Financial Services Authority was investigating the price surge, which came just before an announcement that White Nile had obtained a stake in an oil field in Sudan. The shares are still suspended. There have been plenty of other spectacular gains. Centurion Energy International Inc., which develops oil assets in Tunisia, has seen its share price rise from just 52 pence in 2003 to a high of 780 pence last month. Desire Petroleum Plc has seen its shares soar from 22 pence last year to a peak of 67 pence this year, before falling back slightly. In total, 24 new oil exploration and production companies have been listed in London in the last 12 months, according to research by Al Stanton, an analyst with Bridgewell Securities Ltd in London. Another Prospectus ``Every day there is a thump on the door, and it's another oil company prospectus landing on the doormat,'' said Stanton in a telephone interview. ``Share prices are being pushed up very quickly, with what I suspect are thin volumes and a lot of trading from private investors. The man in the street could well get burned.'' The oil exploration frenzy is starting to show some spooky similarities to the dot-com bubble of five years ago. Take companies such as Afren and White Nile. They don't actually own any oil in the ground yet. Afren has an agreement to take part in a field in Nigeria. The rest of the money raised from investors will be used make acquisitions. Likewise White Nile. Again, no actual oil. At least not yet. According to a company statement, it was created ``to identify and acquire projects in the natural resources sector with particular emphasis on oil projects within Africa.'' Emphasis on Presentation While oil exploration by its nature always has been somewhat of a guessing game and companies jumping into that world may go on to great things, many of the new companies seem to be as much about presentation as future production. There are few better illustrations of that than FirstAfrica Oil Plc. It actually used to be a public relations business called Financial Development Corporation Plc before a reverse takeover at the start of this year. It's now in the oil exploration industry (and had been rewarded with a tripling of its share price). The prospects for small, nimble companies that are good at finding oil haven't looked better in years. The demand for oil has been rising strongly during the last two years, and so has the price. The oil giants need to replenish their reserves. Unrealistic Expectations It's not necessarily a bad thing that some oil companies are being floated on the backs of personalities. The oil industry depends on contacts as much as anything else. The more difficult the territory, the more important it is to know the right people. That may well be a crucial factor for success. The trouble is, a genuine investment story is being over- hyped, just as it was in the technology bubble. The market is channeling investment into an industry that needs it. Yet it is also creating unrealistic expectations and a playground for speculators. Very few of the technology companies that surfaced during that bubble actually went on to make any money, and the same will almost certainly be true of London's new wave of oil companies.
