Rockrose. Too dependent on the oil price for my liking.

Dear All, Thank you for your advice. 35 years of experience tell me this is an excellent investment - but I may be wrong. Valued at restricted cash. Producing 22,000 barrels of oil per day. CEO Andrew Austin owns 29.9999% of the shares. He is about acquisitions, above their existing market cap, in the North Sea. They suspend the shares on acquisition - they then come back about 2.5 x time share price. It is about poo and making the correct acquisition(s). Worth a look.

Yes, an interesting prospect, bigalan3. Of course, many would advise you not to put too big a chunk of investment in one company, especially a small company and in an uncertain sector. I'm personally not of that mind. You're not going to make a fortune spreading your money across a wide range of industry sectors, like backing all the runners in a single horse race, so I've always put most of my eggs in a single, well-researched basket.

Interesting, bigalan3. RRE look to be fairly cash rich in an industry ridden with debt and highly dependent on POO. Good luck with your investment, but until the effect of the reverse takeover of Marathon becomes clearer, investment in RRE is a bit of a lottery. Good to see they are now paying a decent dividend though.

Dear All, Thank you for your very rigorous analysis of my rather meaningless prediction. What is far more important is the Rockrose energy (rre) price at the end of the coming year. Rockrose energy is by far my biggest investment and I suggest you might want to look at it. Many on the interweb said it will be life changing and I am sure they are right. Happy New Year Everyone.

getting, You’re absolutely correct on the rules of the share price contest. Please accept my apologies. Now on your question - ‘Do I ever get anything right’? Yes, frequently. I was right, for example, to keep all my investment capital in MRO at the beginning of this year and not to put a large amount of this investment into Burford Capital or MINUS900.

Meanwhile, do you ever get anything right?? The invitation for entries clearly stated that entries must be submitted by 5pm on 01 Dec (see original post below). Bigalan missed this deadline, therefore his entry was excluded. It’s really not that complicated. So it’s your lack of attention to detail and carelessness that has led you to believe I have a lack of attention to detail isn’t it???? Now back to my turkey sandwiches. 🦃 🦃 gettingrichslow - 28 Nov 2019 - 16:58:20 - 10739 of 10928 Right, it’s that time of year again - time for the traditional Christmas share price prediction competition! The question is: “What will the closing share price be on Christmas Eve 2019?â€�; Submissions by 5pm Sunday 01 December please? I believe the last 2 champions were Casey the Dog and Mattboxy but I may have got that wrong. The winner gets a night out with Meanwhile in the Wrexham Wetherspoons.

So getting got the result of the contest for MRO's Christmas share price wrong. bigalan3's post of 2nd Dec. states :- "My estimate for year end is 242 p. If there is any hint they might sell Norton then it could be a lot higher." If I hadn't recently reformed my behaviour on this site, I would have said that this was a very typical case of getting's carelessness and lack of attention to detail, spanning all areas, including matters relating to investments. However, I have reformed so I wouldn't say it. I leave it open for others to say. But I can congratulate bigalan3 on his successful prediction. Nick Robinson has now also been pulled out. He wanted a paid Taxi from London to Wrexham. The vacancy has been taken by the duo of Minerve and Vince Cable. The prize also comes with a passport-size wallet photo.

Excuse me, I predicted 2.42 - sadly I cannot afford a wallet. I hope the directors can! Happy Christmas everyone.

An independent investigation of this result is needed. Last Thursday 25 million shares traded - almost 2x the norm with virtually no price movement. On Friday 18 million shares traded again with virtually no price change. Yesterday 2 million shares traded and the price moved up strongly while today 2 million shares resulted in another upwards move to position the closing price almost on the successful call. Has the attraction of the prize caused some hanky panky trading to guaranty winning. Andrew Bailey should be brought in to scrutinise this before his move to the BOE.

The entries to the Xmas share price competition were as follows: Yertiz 267p Brexitplus 252p Meanwhile 248p Sliotar 248p Ryelodge 248p HVS 248p Mattboxy 247p Gettingrichslow 239p So at a closing price of 242p, I hereby declare the winner is.... Me! As my prize I get a night out with Meanwhile, Sliotar, Ryelodge and HVS in the Wrexham Wetherspoons. I’ve decided to embrace this and will therefore be travelling up to North Wales to stay at Meanwhile’s house in sheep-poo city on Boxing Day morning! Is that ok with you Sliotar?
