|THANKS EI Have been away from the computer today and have had to have the computer man out for problems, so missed posts.
MAD didn't realise you were in RBW?
I got into them early Feb but at last they seem to have taken off.Don't like any ref to blood diamonds though, anybody know what that poster was on about with management?
ONEV is supposed to have a better second half so hoping those shares will follow through as well.|
|henry, agree 100% re well being and weight loss,
although far from a stick myself.
The GE call scuppered my intention to take a break, hoping markets remain
relatively calm in to the Summer as plan a reduced time commitment
to trading/investing for a while. My better half not at all happy an
intended holiday last week did not happen, oh my ).|
|Truth is Germany loves a weak euro but the others are beginning to wake up to the fact that Europe is Germany and they cannot cope.|
|RBW really taken off the last couple of days and it looks like more to come.|
|The Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung reports that the German polling organisation Allensbach conducted a simultaneous poll in France and Germany on how people see the economy and the political system. 86% of Germans think the economy is great, while 75% in France think the opposite. The imbalance of attitudes runs through the entire survey. 61% of Germans are happy with the economic system, while in France that number is only 27%. Two thirds of Germans are happy with the political system, but only 15% in France. And, finally, only 13% of Germans have a problem with globalisation, while in France that number is 55%.
The problem for Macron is that Germany is quite happy with the status quo. Why would they want any changes to the EU?
M/F...yes rabbit, rabbit, rabbit does sound a bit Chas & Dave.|
|Rabbit prevention always a big issue. If the wife doesn't give me peace I always end up in the garden too Henry.|
|Alitalia looks likely to file for bankruptcy. A national airline going down and the government unable to set in because of rules about EU state aid. Something like that could turn out to be the straw that breaks the camels back and it will also be interesting if Macron has anything to say about it.I don't think the French election is over yet. The lesson of Trump and Brexit is that the majority do not like a wealthy metropolitan elite telling them what to do and Le Pen may surprise. But whoever wins in France won't be able to get anything through parliament, so stalemate will result in any event. Le Pen may well be thinking that this time is too early for her, but next time, with all the old parties having failed and the bright new thing having failed, their will be no alternative. Gawd help us.|
|Since getting back out in the garden these past few weeks I've lost over half a stone in weight, down to 12 stone. The long spell of good weather has helped & I'm feeling much better for it. Rabbit prevention is the big issue at the moment.|
|Andrew Neil is just head and shoulders above any other UK political interviewer atm,
talk about ferociously clever.
hazl, replied, apologies for the tardiness, and that should have read "worked".|
|GSK- quick scan of the statement, it looks more than OK,
however very difficult to assess immediately.
Dividend outlook and guidance for 2017 maintained.|
|I did )).
Always easier after the event though whymps!, my Dad happened to call me
about LLOY just when you asked that question, he still holds as mentioned.|
|I reckon you made that in 2-3 days, so that's pretty good going and your logic was there. I'm still holding as a trade and also have held for a while in portfolio.|
|I'm throwing some money at a couple of short gold positions. 5GOS in London, and once NY market has settled down, JDST. Tech leading and the French election out of the way I think a correction has started.|
|whymps, would love to say yes, but sadly no, sold before the weekend
just in case the French result had Le Pen with a strong showing.
I held in quantity by last week. The more sensible and logical
approach would have been to sell a %. It was a quick £4660 profit,
although would have been considerably more by this morning!.
On Monday had intended to buy back, but thought the price had got away,
would still have been a decent entry or re-entry in my case ).
My Dad still holds, just spoke with him about LLOY as it happens.|
|EI still long LLOY?|
|GSK report at 12.00 folks for anyone interested.
Not a great fan of Mr Bragg's vocal delivery, although he does a
great version of "Never Had No One Ever". The beginning a little ropey,
but it builds in to something startling- on YouTube, worth a listen.|
|That is one aspect I miss about growing up in Co. Cork,
the coast and sea close by.
Surrey is a tad land locked ).|
|Spitting, small world. I started of at Thomas a Beckett primary.|
|"New England" is quality.
The second of the two additional verses he wrote for KM's version is
pretty special, one of my favourite lyrics.|
|whymps2 - Yes I grew up in Worthing and went to Worthing High School with Billy Idol (William Broad as he was then)|
|SpittingBarrell did you go to school in Worthing? I think Billy Idol went to Durrington High School.I was at school with Alvin Stardust's son. His son Adam and was a very disruptive student who didn't do any work and was always in trouble. This said, the guy was incredibly gifted when it came to music. At the time he couldn't read music but could play any tune he heard by ear. Having 'left' school he got into record producing at home and dj'ing and became the drum and bass producer Adam F. His big break came when he sent a demo tape to Def Jam records, where it was heard by LL CoolJ. Upon hearing it he delayed the release of his new album and asked Adam to work on it for him before releasing it.|
|I've been standing at a urinal minding my own business when who should appear next to me and struck up a conversation but the Bard of Barking Mr Billy Bragg!|
|Whilst waiting for a hair cut in a barbershop in Walthamstow, Brian Harvey, the lead singer of E17 came into the shop and stumbled over my outstretched leg as he went to greet the barber..
I looked up and called him a *anker...
Best I can do I'm afraid :)
