RE: Trump's ego and the dangers it presents.06 Jan 2020 15:35
The other thing missing is the US/international corporations that want the conflict and control of the middle east. Trump's cabinet and Senators on both side of the house are all using him as a puppet for their dirty deeds.
I'm ahead of you. I have emailed asking for a statement explaining their holding position - as delusional as such an enquiry will be perceived! Albeit not as knowledgeable as some of you on the legal aspects of these holding positions, my basic understanding of the conversations on this board is that ARCM are clearly in breach of FCA rules? I'm therefore astounded that there hasn't been any statement from PMO or indication of FCA investigation into the holding? This said I'm probably being naive.
Thanks. I had noted over the past year or so the growing resentment (putting it mildly) for GS. I agree with many of you, how it's not illegal is staggering. It must severely constrain investment in PMO likewise PMO's ability to borrow - not that it seams we would want to encourage TD to borrow based on some comments :-)
You're more on the edge of your seat than laidback! :-) A lot like me. I'm more concerned that much of the value has been factored into the share price :-( Some of our more informed colleagues on this board suggest this is the case... I would like to know how robust such a claim can be - albeit many appear to have a rough idea of Zama's estimated value - therefore predicted affect on the share. Any suggestions on scale of bounce or not?
RE: The traditional oil & gas industry is on its knees18 Nov 2019 11:01
"On its knees" or lengthy transition? There is a slow realisation electric cars on large scale are worse for the environment than the latest petrol (see reports on decimation of Congo forests for mineral extraction to meet battery production demands). The Government Chief Scientist for Transport recently announced at the IET in May the new UK Transport Strategy does not see electric cars as the primary transport mode - they are still exploring the primary fuel source options, electric is seen as supplementary possibly urban transport solutions in busy cities where emissions are currently excessive. We could well have a number of years of large scale oil use ahead... Whether or not that is sufficient for this SP to rise to anywhere near the levels (£1+) some on the board predict is my concern!
mmm... I don't know, is it mis-selling or simply where customer service is these days.... It's like the 12 inches being talked about... should it be nearer a yard... or has the leak been counter-productive?
Hi Auson, Interestingly on that point Uk DfT are not promoting electric as the primary propulsion in their Transport Strategy. It's seen as a catalyst with a primary emerging from an alternative (inc. Hydrogen) the obvious in my view as a natural migration from existing fuels is possible (i.e. you can run an ICE on Hydrogen as you do with LPG) DfT's chief scientist recently stated they see electric as something complimentary to an alternative primary e.g. around smart cities.. Very futurist!
