Nice to hear from you mate, been a while, glad to see you are still with the business, whilst the "markets" seem to love the cost cutting/job shedding it always makes me feel slightly uncomfortable, i prefer to see the sp grow on good news and the expansion of the business, likewise i shake my head with despair, when i read comments on these boards , where there seems to be pleasure when things are not going so well for a business and are slightly challenging for whatever reason, yea , as investors, we may shed a tear for our bad fortune but it should be remembered, it is some peoples whole livelihood, career and family that are also effected by all this .
World events we can't control and will always be the risk here, but HG is doing ok , she might need to consider this is not a woman show and start bringing her senior Team up to her polish and per-nazz ! though .
Anyway , while it might look a bit painful on paper at the moment, nothing to get too excited about , smiley faces to come i am sure, cavok :-)
I think it is very interesting that HG has bought again when the SP is depressed and if I had spare cash I would be inclined to follow her. Reason being is that very soon she has to prove that she is more than just a cost cutter and show that TCG can return a profit. At that point SP booms and I suspect shortly after that she will be off to challenges new. Speaking as someone experiencing her cuts, it is still painful, but I can see what they are trying to do and it seems to be working, slowly but surely. There is signs of innovative thinking and expansion, again tentatively, but in sensible areas. Always low business risk. I think this SP will go over 200p next year, unless world events intervene.
The Cat I'm a little disappointed by you suggestion that Rolf Harris could take over TCGs PR. I was thinking Max Clifford?
fitchi I probably didn't put that too well. I've bought and sold TCG a number of times and done quite well on each occasion. I was always of the opinion that it couldn't last, hence my comments on the management's strategy to date. Good short term. Perhaps not so good long term. Assuming that we want to invest, the money has to go somewhere and perhaps TCG is no longer the best place. I've done ok out of this share but I've always been cautious about it. Ms Green has been the darling of The City for a while now but what goes up must come down. Anyway, as I said, I'm an amateur so these are just my thoughts.
Analysts were forecasting £2.50 for this share for quite a while. What happened to that? (I wasn't a believer).
Am I right in thinking that the share price dropped significantly on the 14th - the before HG issued her statement?
Anyway. I'm really not frustrated at all. A little disappointed perhaps but, hey, if I can't take a joke I shouldn't buy shares eh...
In truth, I'll be hanging onto my shares and tend to believe they'll get back to a reasonable level (again, only my amateur opinion).
Yes the down turn in SP has left me with a bitter taste in my mouth and i wasn't expecting it, but as things stand i,m currently shaking my granny upside down to see if i can lay my hands on more funds without cashing in any of my other holdings.
like many on here i was looking to off load a few thousand at £1.90 - £2 mark which if i'm honest was hoping for last week, but as Ester say's "Thats Life!!
But having been here since the dark days of 12p & 14p so still sitting on a large pot of profit, but a few K short from last wednesday, was hoping for a new car this week, will now put that idea on hold for a few weeks i think!!!!
It’s standard practice, take the sp down. Divide your loss by 5 & times it by 100 & top up by that amount. Then if it rises by 5% over the next few days you’ve got your loss back + hopefully some profit too.
Looks like the mm's want to kill off TCG once and for all. Now down to 148 with little sign of any real upturn. They did the same at 3.00pm last Friday. They see it as an easy target and are out to make the most of it and putting further panic onto the pi's
JN, I'm far from expert on the subject but I get your frustration. If we were back at around 180-190 I'd be out, for sure.
Problem is where do you put it? TC is (or should be) reasonably low risk / high reward over medium & long term, that's my opinion anyway.
The PR needs revamping urgently as the last 3 reports were relatively positive but put over so poorly they came out negative. Wouldn't surprise me to see Rolf Harris as the new frontman on the TV adverts.
Hello all. I'm just a hobby investor so my knowledge is fairly limited.
I've made good money off TCG in the past, but my investment has mostly been based on Ms. Green's BS swinging market sentiment. Of course, I understand there's a lot going on worldwide that is affecting the markets, but TCG's share price dropped quite significantly and fairly quickly.
She sold off the family silver and cut costs raising share the price short term, but I'm not entirely convinced she has truly "added value" and all the time she and other upper management figures have been helping themselves to shares and bonuses like there's no tomorrow.
Has everyone lost faith in Ms. Green and moved on? Should I cut my losses and buy elsewhere?
