|Valentine - Is CEY on your radar?|
|OXB..still holding but market not as +ve as I was.
Need good news...and soon.
Trovax is what they are all waiting on.
CHP more likely to produce goods in the short term.
Primavera West is a massive find and ready to tap. takeover prospect now allegedly. news after next Thurs..when exactly can't say with two weeks from now imo.|
|Valentine - you better believe that LBT will make shed loads this year - small shareholder stuffed again.
What are your current thoughts on OXB?|
|Still on cards...ssooon!|
|CHP news next couple of days..maybe tomorrow..I believe..
get out as soon as released, on spike, until settles.|
|Nanjing take 35-yr lease from st Modwen for Longbridge. I wonder how it affects LBT? Not badly, now they own outright, I assume. Getting cynical in old age.|
|COIL retreated but still big trades, probably someone picking up the nervous sells.
Assured it's still a runner. Will hang in there. Maybe get some more.
MRP another contender. More news on Gas well in Louisiana due soon. Could be V big.
IMP also retreated today, first time in ages. It's still on course for major revelation. Nothing changed. End March?
OXB ticked up today. It could double easily with right news, or approach.
CHP: T20 will take you past the 'news' date predicted by CEO. approx March 16th|
|I'm sooo tempted!|
|RNS Hendersons acc 29m CHP. nearly 6%!!
IMP item in Times today. Rumour of the day! £5.00.
COIL looking good!|
|They have to access the oil first. It is there acc to seismic chap Graeme Stevens ..and I've heard from his own lips, at AGM a few months back. Kept it under wraps until certain they have it in bag. CHP awarded him 1m share options last week. ergo?
Someone thinks about £2.50 on present knowledge if they have 400m barrels. Paraguay gas story still to come..who knows?..Some say, as self-funding, another Cairn Energy??
they are unlikely to say they think it has 400m in RNS..merely that they have licence to pump out what is there.|
|Saw the Telegraph article yesterday.
How far can this go?|
|See the CHP board for link to Telegraph article on CHP. Be up early!|
|CHP mentioned in The Times and have a verbal on Wall St Reporter.
Should be up again on Monday
The Primavera site is serious stuff
Have a look at COIL also. A snip at 6p.
TAD give away Streaming ETI whole kit and caboodle for a song. Legal claims against them for dismissal etc. not forgetting dodgy accounting. Did SW hold up SoftBank to swing deal and force them to sell, and/or will the ever pay up. They included the SB 'delayed payment' in figs. Would look horrible if not there. Well off away from them. be a longtime before smell goes away.
Passive Shareholders as victims. Soon as S/h committee threatens to get involved they capitulate and give it away!|
|CHP doing nicely........and so are my Jap warrants - SB52 up 27% today.
Will have to move to Dec warrant SC 19 soon.|
|Been informed by Barclays stockbrokers that they will receive settlement from the TO on 27/01. Distribution into nominee accounts will occur about a week later.|
|SD needs more investment. Bugs still there and security factor in doubt. That is why went to games perhaps? Big boys unconvinced their product was 'safe'.
Someone will buy and make further investment.
Old ETI and ST ex-employees have claims against Tad for being 'sacked' without notice.
Some are saying if they get rid of present incumbent they may resurrect AppX and maybe Magi.
Done deal allegedly. Sage VC?
ps GSD is core co now. MK becomes CEO, I believe.
Hope you got your CHP's...8p now and will go a lot further.|
|Been in and out of Japan - fortunately was out the country early this week and sold my highly geared warrants last friday and moved to a safer product.
Bought back into the more leveraged product in time for the bounce.
Allowing for leverage I'm down 2% and Nikkei is down 5%. Will be moving to December Warrants so there is no time issue and expect to be smiling by Spring!!
SD - are they giving up on it all together??
Can I assume Magi has gone by the way and no doubt they'll be selling off Cartesia to fund some other unprofitable venture.
|Broker sent letter of acceptance or default today.
Accepted the loss regrettably. Happy to get away with the added knowledge.
CHP very chirpy today by comparison. Expect some +ve statement soon and the elation of a bit of success.|
|Should've stayed in LBT C.
Sorry about Livedoor.
Hope you held off getting in.
To think Tad/StreamTheory have a contract with SoftBank. ST supposedly unaffected by the scandal.
Strong rumourette that SD is no longer an item.
$10m and royalty!|
|Looks like not far off now.
Hope it is soon and can put a few bob more into CHP!
