We've never been friends, T. What I find interesting is your posting history. Take your 5th ever post as Tanzania. In that post you use the 'we' to refer to longterm holders. You express surprise at another poster Patient Ali because, you say, you find it 'very unusual' that he hardly ever posts on this bb. You challenge his honesty and integrity because of his lack of posts. It was your 5th post and his 8th or 9th. Lol. So, rather than me make snide remarks about your lack of posts like you did about Patient Ali, I'll ask you the question you alluded to with Ali: don't you find it 'very unusual' that for longterm holder you have even less posts than Patient Ali?
See, I think you forgot who you really are and posted in the same way as a regular contributor. Oh, and stop speaking for other people - that's very clearly defined as a certain other poster's job!
"I sold my remaining Aex shares early this morning (think it was around 140,000 shares). I just don't see the sp rising substantially for the next year or so and there are too many risks after that, strictly in my opinion. I know it's all about risk/reward but I just want to invest more funds in another company (another flipping high risk/high reward venture).
Obviously, I'll still be looking in here (probably every day!). Normally when one sells up a share one can't help but feel vindicated and even a little pleased at a good decision. However, as a result of growing quite fond of most of you, in this case I'll be praying and hoping Aex rises - and my new investment rises more!
I've done very well out of Aminex (it's been my best investment ever having got in low and then selling the bulk of my shares at 2.8p but that was lucky because I'm down 70% on my second biggest investment!) so I'll have great memories of it.
No doubt I'll offer my tuppence worth to the conversation now and again but for now I just want to wish you the very best of luck with Aminex."
This was the opening line from my post last Sunday about Rak Gas:
"I'm still studying the two latest RNSs and the more I choose to look to the future and leave 'family silver' issues behind the more upbeat and less deflated I feel about the whole deal."
Does that sound like someone disgusted with the deal? So Tiptop and Tanzana get another scapegoat. The worst I expressed of the deal was a sense of deflation. Even that was dissipating as you can see above.
Wtf is wrong with some of you? I made one jokey comment re Tiptop's alleged grumbling about Bhatterjee and now I'm public enemy number 1 again? I think I've posted three times since I sold up last Monday. No post was serious and I can assure you all that other than state I don't see much happening here for a while and repeatedly wishing you all the best I have certainly kept my exact feelings about Aminex in check this week.
Irishmouse, if I see a decent GSA I'll call it decent, if I see a shyte one I'll call it shyte. You, and others, seem to have forgotten my comments last Sunday about the Bowleven deal - I'll copy and paste them.
Tanzana,get a life. I know exactly who you are and will watch with interest to see if (if ever) the penny drops with the rest of the crew.
Tiptop, I thought you had a sense of humour and would see the humour in my last post but it seems this bb was looking for a scapegoat because of the utterly shyte performance of the sp since the deal. I did say all our opinions are hugely irrelevant and that the sp will tell us whether the deal was good or bad. It's still early days though.
For the record, this is a free discussion board and I will post whatever I like whenever I like on whatever board I choose whether I hold 1,000,000 shares or none. I'm quite disappointed at being the centre of a discussion having sold up last week and saying I'd drop in every now and then. It's amazing how peoples' anger with their investment has to be taken out on somebody.
The bizarre thing is Kev has supposedly held for a while through the hard times and sells right at the last moment just before things get interesting and he was always so downbeat. We may have a smaller portion of Ruvuma but we have hugely de-risked and will soon clear our debt and have plenty spare in the bank, providing us with security. So clearly a more cynical person would say Kev had been shorting and was leaving before the GSA arrives and targeting Solo instead. Now clearly I don't really care if Kev has moved on because that's his choice, so I will not be discussing him again but that's my thoughts.
So lets get back to the important questions like when is our GSA to arrive and what has Jay got to surprise us with next ???
I agree with you CP. At least Kev brings some sanity to this board - some others comments are truly breath-taking in their naivety. WE ALL NOW KNOW THE DEAL WAS TRANSFORMATIONAL! It's just that a lot of us, both short and long term investors, had believed for many years that we wouldn't end up at fire sale prices. Our illustrious leader/s have been telling us that our assets were worth a good deal more than the figure now achieved - and would be monetised some time ago.
Additionally the idea that the Bowleven arrangement is a "win, win" deal is a little overstated; I do not want to rake over old coals but AEX were forced into the Bowleven deal due to dalays in the Kiliwani GSA and, as a consequence, in my mind and in those of many others, AEX ended up taking a bargain basement price for these assets.
Yes the best we could get maybe but not perhaps as good as we could have done but for being in a dire financial situation.....
I believe that I am right in saying that Kev does still have a sizable interest in Solo; besides which I often follow and contribute to BB when I am thinking of buying in to a particular share not necessarily when I hold them....
