I got a tad concerned about the delay at SDX when waiting for the Morocco news and foolishly sold my holding at a slight profit to preserve it in case bad drilling news was on its way. Should have held too! I still hold my AMER though and it is on its way to breakeven for me. Should probably have invested my SDX proceeds into AMER when I had the chance but alas I bottled out. Would have done well if I did! Staying put and not doing anything in the days of instant news at our finger tips is not always easy. When we actually physically held share certificates back in the day it wasn't so easy to chop and change! Good to see HCM coming back now and also to see BVXP regaining ground. You will have some dividend money to reinvest now Apad!

Apad, I think SDX is a bit different to other oilers because of its exposure to gas. I think gas is the future and that was the reason RDSB paid so much for British gas for its exposure to gas reserves. I guess when Saudis decide to float AMARCO, you know the oil's peaked, and all this effort to increase oil prices is to get it to float when poo is high. There's a move by Europe and China to move to fuel cell and hydrogen technology. In France there are a no of trams that are running on them, and in London a no of buses have been using the technology for many years without any issues. The company behind it is BALLARD which is a Canadian company but the big issue is that the infrastructure for recharging is nowhere near adequate to warrant any expansion. There's also been a lot of joint venture between BALLARD and Chinese companies to move trains and trams from diesel to their technology which is a combination of hydrogen and electric. So, I can not get excited about oil but gas is the future, and hence I think SDX may continue to do well if gas discovery continues.

My boredom with SDX and judgement that BOO was undervalued is now showing a 39% loss on the switch. Better to do nothing, indeed. apad🤔

The Norris item on FEVR rings a little hollow, red. "'A couple of years ago you could only really buy it in high-end bars and restaurants and it was very good in terms of protecting its brand,' he said. 'But if you can buy it discounted in Sainsbury's the brand value of the company is not going to sustain itself in a way it would have done if it was more exclusive. 'When brands meet the shopping mall they often die and I think that's going to happen with Fever-Tree.'" I think he doesn't understand what a brand is. I'm more worried about the aspartamine subsidy. apad😎

APAD, janeann investment firms are particularly affected in a downturn of the mkt as they charge a % of the funds under management which would decline even if investors stay put

We will email you when we have news on them. by Daniel Grote on Apr 20, 2018 at 14:06 Norris shorts Fever-Tree, says shares could halve Barry Norris, manager of the Argonaut Absolute Return + Add to favourites fund that has enjoyed a revival in fortunes over the last year, is betting against Fever-Tree (FEVR + Add to favourites ), the stock market darling whose shares have risen more than 16-fold in less than four years. Norris has taken out a 'short' position on shares in the mixer drinks maker, saying the stock could fall by 'at least' 50% if his prediction of a dramatic slowdown in sales growth is borne out. He has pitted himself against a host of top-performing rival fund managers who owe a large chunk of their returns to the huge rally in the stock. Independent (IIT + Add to favourites ), the top-performing UK-focused investment trust of the last five years, whose shares have rallied 233.5% over that period, has a 10.4% position in Fever-Tree, according to the latest portfolio data, published at the end of January. Old Mutual UK Smaller Companies Focus + Add to favourites , the best-performing open-ended UK smaller companies fund of the last five years, has a 5% position according to February's factsheet, which has helped towards a 176% return. Shares in Fever-Tree have risen by more than 1,500% since floating at 165p in November 2014. Today the shares were changing hands at £26.85, down from a peak of £29 in March. 'The growth rate has to slow down' Norris (pictured), who owned the shares two years ago, has now turned against the stock, arguing the shares' valuation left no room for error, just as the company's heady growth in UK sales was likely to slow down. 'When you start on a valuation of 18 times sales, a 60 times price-earnings ratio, that leaves no room for execution error,' he said. 'There's a lot of growth already factored into the valuation.' In an update to investors in his fund, Norris said UK sales growth, which the company estimated at 96% for 2017 in a January trading update, was likely to slow down. 'My basic contention on this stock is the growth rate simply through the law of large numbers, has to slow down and that the company will struggle to grow into its multiples,' he said. He said Fever-Tree's UK sales were particularly vulnerable as a result of the company's move towards supplying its products to supermarkets and a workforce which was incentivised towards sales rather than profits. This risked damaging the brand and leaving existing customers over-supplied, Norris argued. 'A couple of years ago you could only really buy it in high-end bars and restaurants and it was very good in terms of protecting its brand,' he said. 'But if you can buy it discounted in Sainsbury's the brand value of the company is not going to sustain itself in a way it would have done if it was more exclusive. 'When brands meet the shopping mall they often die and I think that's going to happen with Fever-Tree.' Norris claimed the level of sales growth delivered by Fever-Tree to date meant the company was risking oversupplying the market, meaning future growth was likely to tumble. 'If we look at the sales force with Fever-Tree and the management, they are all highly incentivised on sales rather than profitability. 'So the chances they have stuffed the channels in the UK with as much Fever-Tree product as they possibly can and that their customers are overstocked with Fever-Tree products I think is quite high,' he said. 'Clearly the company in the UK is not going to grow 96% in 2018. The question is what is that number and is there a chance that the number not only slows down to very low growth but potentially turns negative on the back of overstock of their products? 'Certainly if that happens the share price is going to be down at least 50% if not more.' red

Yep, looks like oil is back in fashion. Back in as well, through the usual suspects but more cautious this time around. So many bull traps with oil so far that I lost count. However, the crude index keeps moving higher so I suspect oilers could and should reconnect in due course.

AMER does look interesting, I agree. Haven't actually bought any yet though. Well done on SQZ, Hydrus.

Been adding to SQZ in the sixties, seventies and eighties (in reverse order as price dropped) - thought i was going mad but finally appears to be moving forward.Not an oil expert but the projected cash flows are insane

janeann - do you have evidence that wealth managers don't suffer in a bear market. I had the same thought about IGG as Big7 - then I had the thought that people bet on falls anyway, so it is perhaps always profitable when there is volatility? apad

Bought few Naspers today. It is a play on their 30% stake in Tencent and is trading at significant discount.
