Really heartening to read the posts on here today, the later ones. Many of us are in the 5 or 7 stages of grief right now as we move into a very different world and for some, lose loved ones, shock, denial, anger, bargaining, depression, testing, acceptance.
One day we'll emerge from all of this and agree with Jay12, this strengthens my resolve to get my priorities straight in future!
Thank you, your kind and yes, sometimes detailed but often musical responses have been much appreciated and enjoyed! Hope Hurricane and everyone I've had the pleasure to meet on here and other boards gets through this and see you on the other side!
Thanks PetetheStreet and Genghis
Fundamentals for Hurricane don't influence my decision, on a personal level just having to take steps to make sure my family are covered and that's meant some difficult choices in the last few weeks. I sincerely hope Hurricane get through this and that they get adequate support from the OGA and the Government. Let's see what the next few months bring, wishing you all the best.
We all know Hurricane is woefully undervalued, or was, what happens in the next months remains to be seen - globally as a result of Covid. We've all seen this before, a tentative rise only to be sold into the next day and I think that's exactly what this is.
I'm out as of today, only holding a few stocks now. I may regret it long term but right now cash is king and I'll just have to make it back. These are going to be challenging times for every single business out there and none the less so for Hurricane. If I'm still here in a few months and it looks like there might be some positive support for growth I'll be back in.
Sincerely good luck to all invested here and previously invested here. Keep safe and well and take care of those you love. Most of all - be kind!
BBC - 'not straight' - let's not mention every seriously dodgy (but fondly remembered nevertheless in all innocence) children's programme made in the 70s - Magic Roundabout, Captain Pugwash ... there were many
Daltry 100% with you there, either they're putting on a 'show' or one has to question their complacency at this juncture when the rest of the world is loving loved ones on a daily basis - either posturing or seriously suspect! And that's from someone who loves Russian writers and thinkers - (yes the ones who inevitably ended up dead!)
Please listen to this recording from an NHS A&E consultant. If we can pull together as a country and prevent NHS overload hopefully this doctor and all doctors up and down this country won't be put in the position of having to choose which patient they put on a ventilator and which patient they can't ...
Agree on the panic buying, it's a vicious circle. Supermarkets are adjusting policies in response so we'll see how that works out. Suspect Captain Swag was being ironic re. who the virus effects. Meantime let's go check on our neighbours and loved ones ...
I hope my posts will be excused as off topic as they were in response to other postings musings on the current or likely impact of Covid-19. There's always a silver lining though, priorities may be realigned with reality at last instead of the 'greed is good culture' propagated by Thatcher for so long. Even Trump's becoming socialist, though he's called it 'Americanism', bless him!

Estimated death toll in different scenarios:
If nothing is done: 500,000 deaths
Slow spread of virus, including isolating those with symptoms: 250,000 deaths
Measures in place now: Suppress virus, including school closures, reducing social contact, isolating vulnerable and those with symptoms: 20,000 deaths
Note: It's been said by one or other of the Imperial College advisors that broadly speaking take the current number of reported cases x 10 = the probable figure.
One consideration, which someone mentioned on here before, if you consider NFX are in a highly competitive market place, one factor for the current silence may be advanced talks/developments and wishing to keep cards closer to hand than before ... silence, in this case, might well be 'golden'.
