Any rto companies worth a look at?
Bounced off support again this morning,260p seems a solid base now so I am expecting a steady move back to 280p - 290p range in next 6 weeks.
elias jones
The recent drop looks overdone I think this will steady itself back in the 280p to 290p ranges soon.I been holding these for a while now since 192p and sliced a few off in feb for a good profit,this stock has always been agile when in recovery mode and will attract buyers at this level.
elias jones
results look good to me .. keep buying imo
Shells on the AIM market have a deadline to do a deal. Many fail that timeframe and get kicked off, with investors taking a 100% hit. The best shell companies have a business already, producing day to day income prior to any deal. Get a company that’s on the MAIN London market that’s valued at a tiny £1.5M and about to do a deal and you have a winner.
only winners please

Former shell looking to turn round and the market hasnt twigged - Kryptonite 1 - they are investing in cryptocurrency, have done very well and are trading at a 50% discount to likely valuation.... hTTps://
Although the track-record of Polemos (PLMO) has been poor, a shell should never be written off until it's definitely over. Because there's always the potential for new management, new finance, and a new strategy ... to give a touch of the CHA CHA CHA. The renowned shell Concha (CHA) 40-bagged in 2014, to a market cap. of over £100M. at its peak. But CHA's initial investments in 2013 had quickly failed, and the share had to be refinanced. And there are some similarities to CHA's position then and PLMO's at the moment, at 0.022p (market cap. £1.14M.)

A share that hasn't featured on this thread before is ZMNO, which is currently trading at well below cash, and is currently considering a cash return to shareholders, &/or an acquisition. At 3.9p its strong cash position, especially relative to its market cap., helps make it a lower risk shell play, but one which could still give some 'Zam, bam, thank you ma'am': Zamano (ZMNO) 3.9p Market cap. £3.9M. In its 31st. March final results, ZMNO stated that " ... a decision is expected to be made during H1 2017." So we are now over a month overdue. However, ZMNO's recent recovery to 3.9p is a bullish sign. And ZMNO's AGM on Wednesday could provide a timely opportunity to update the market. 31/03/2017 07:00 UKREG Zamano PLC Final Results "... In light of this, the Group took the decision in early February 2017 to formally wind down the existing business lines in order to protect the cash position on the balance sheet. The wind down of the existing business lines is ongoing and the Board is currently considering alternative strategic options. In the absence of a timely strategic alternative, the Group will look to maximise its cash position and make a distribution back to shareholders. The zamano Board is focused on conserving the Group's strong cash position by optimising our withdrawal from our existing business lines and the Group remains fully committed to supporting its clients and providing a high level of customer experience and service during the wind down process. ... This profit after tax, excluding the impairment charge, led to a further improvement in the Group's net cash position. At 31 December 2016, net cash was EUR7.2 million, an increase of EUR0.9 million over the 31 December 2015 net cash figure of EUR6.3 million.... (b) Going concern As explained in the Directors' Report, detrimental regulatory changes introduced during late 2016 have impacted both the Group's performance in the short term and the ability of the Group to sustain profitability going forward. In light of these changes, in February 2017, the Board took the decision to formally wind down existing business lines over the course of 2017. The Board is currently considering alternative strategic options for the Group beyond the cessation period for existing operations, one of which includes a liquidation and distribution of the Group's net assets to its shareholders. No decision has yet been made over the Group's strategic options however a decision is expected to be made during H1 2017." 27/06/2017 17:06 UKREG Zamano PLC Posting of Annual Report & Notice of AGM "zamano plc is pleased to confirm that its Annual Report & Accounts for the 12 months ended 31 December 2016 have been published and sent to shareholders.

Main-listed shell Senterra Energy (SEN) resumed trading this week post-RTO as United Oil & Gas (UOG). United Oil & Gas (UOG) 3.0p Market cap. £6.0M. SEN's period as a shell saw a disappointing share price performance: at listing on 10th. November 2015, the Company issued 25,000,000 new ordinary shares at a price of 5 pence per share, raising GBP1.25 million before expenses. Whereas the UOG RTO placing has been priced at 2.5.

Yesterday's IC article on position sizing should come as no surprise to investors familiar with the legendary "Zurich Axioms", the first one of which recommends concentrated investing. These twelve axioms (some of which are more useful than others - I dislike II, XI, & XII) were summarised in the "Investors Chronicle" about three years ago (21 August 2014): Axiom I - on risk. Risk enough to be really worried about the outcome. Play for meaningful stakes. Axiom II - on greed. Always take your profits too soon. Control your greed; don't let it control you. Axiom III - on hope. When the ship starts to sink, don't pray. Jump. What makes a top-rate poker player - knowing when to fold. Axiom IV - on forecasts. Distrust anyone who claims to know the future. And don't let your own reasonable expectations of the future harden into dogmatic certainty. Axiom V - on patterns. Don't see order where it does not exist. Most of the time you're dealing with chaos, but that's not dangerous until it seems to look orderly. Axiom VI - on mobility. Stay light on your feet. Don't get locked into a way of thinking about investments and don't stick with a situation because you think it 'owes' you something. Axiom VII - on intuition. Trust a hunch if you can explain it. And you can explain it if it's consistent with the conclusions you can draw from an area that you have studied in depth. Axiom VIII - on religion and the occult. Don't imagine that providence will make you rich. After all, if astrology worked, all astrologers would be rich. Axiom IX - on optimism and pessimism. Learn the difference between confidence and optimism. If you are confident, you know how to handle the worst; if you're just optimistic, you don't. Axiom X - on consensus. Arrive at your own conclusions. Be deeply sceptical of majority opinion and never follow what look like speculative fads. Axiom XI - on stubbornness. Leave stubbornness to others. If a speculation does not succeed first time, forget it. And never average down a losing situation. Axiom XII - on planning. Forget long-range planning. All speculative media will change in ways that you cannot imagine.

The main article headlined on the front cover of today's "Investors Chronicle": "Investing cracked Why putting all your eggs in one basket could pay off" "By Todd Wenning Position sizing is a constant challenge for amateur and professional investors alike. There’s no exact science behind it (we’ll discuss a few strategies in a moment), yet how you allocate capital across your investments can have a massive impact on your returns. ..." HTTP:// A key message in the article is that investors should put more into their very best ideas, so that they have a more meaningful impact upon their portfolios. That immediately made me think of the BeST BeaST on the London Stockmarket ... video analytics company BST (23.5p, market cap. £13.3M.). In my opinion, long-term BST is a potential Qlik: “Visual Analytics Firm Qlik to be Acquired for $3bn June 6 2016 Visual analytics company Qlik is to be acquired by equity investment firm Thoma Bravo, in an all-cash transaction valued at approximately $3.0 billion. Lars BjörkHeadquartered in Radnor, Pennsylvania, Qlik has offices around the world with more than 1,700 partners covering more than a hundred countries. Its portfolio of self-service data visualization and guided analytics products is used by companies of all sizes worldwide to explore information and generate insight. This portfolio comprises three core solutions: the Qlik Sense visual analytics platform; the QlikView guided analytics and dashboarding solution; and the Qlik Cloud range of SaaS apps. Under the terms of the acquisition agreement, Qlik shareholders will receive $30.50 in cash for each share of Qlik common stock, a 40% premium over the stock's last closing price. The proposed transaction is expected to close in the third quarter of 2016, subject to approval by Qlik's shareholders and regulatory authorities and the satisfaction of customary closing conditions. CEO Lars Björk (pictured) comments: 'Thoma Bravo recognizes the value that Qlik delivers - a platform that lets our customers see the whole story that lives within their data. Thoma Bravo has an excellent track record of investing in outstanding technology businesses for the long-term, and I am confident our employees, customers and partners will greatly benefit from our partnership with them'.
