All seems a bit squiffy TBH. Not many trades showing so either there is some heavy selling in the background or bad news has leaked. Or it's just a manipulated shake out before a rise. Is the spread above correct? I assume not, it seldom is and haven't tried any dummy trades.
Lades I don't remember any of them apart from range. I confess to being tempted to buy Range in the past. More recently I managed to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory with KEA, but that was my fault for being greedy. Back to RR, I'm hoping that RGM have success at Horse Hill and it has a knock on effect here. ATB
YA - could be converting the last of the most recent CLN. Need to go back and count to see if any remain O/S
Greenland - Unlikely, unless they publish a LOI for a bottom of the market offer which AB discounted a few weeks ago
Staff shares - Is it the right time of year for that? Usually see these twice a year, don't have time at work now to find them to confirm
DS holding - Who knows? But I would say no otherwise the price wouldn't have fallen so badly
Annual accounts - Usually published at the last possible time allowable, so not due until next month
Director dealings - Unlikely, AB only does that in the staff scheme at a discount and cheap shares thrown in on top
JMS - Could be a wildcard this one
Colombia - Might be production figures if they are half decent on grade and tonnage
IC / Kenya - Could be issue of licences, might be more field studies
I am non the wiser having written all that. Could be more share issuances, but shouldn't be if debt is under control like AB says it is. Working capital without heavy debt repayments should be less severe in coming to the shareholders for cash so frequently. We shall see.
Let us not forget that AB must be looking for a "retirement package" sooner rather than later. As you quite rightly hint, RGM is his darling. AB doesn't communicate with shareholders with openness but rather in evasive riddles. Usually that is the metier of those with something to hide. The Greenland load of cojones springs to mind. I think AB is in it for himself.
Ridiculous as it may sound, many have wondered about this.
ds does appear a decent guy from his posting, however we don't REALLY know anything about him or WHY he would choose to invest so much in this company, especially when the 1st string Horse from the stable is also very attractive odds and is the one which runs in the first colours and is the one that the trainer and owner undoubtedly favour.....................
