For my sins - it's become a bit of a trading share and the BB became unreadable so just look every now and again. I have been doing the odd trade myself to pull my average down so not looking as bad as it was.

Or cruel though it sounds he could just decide to retire and take his family with him. Now that would help - let someone interested in actually working for a living instead of this leech take over the company. It's been a bountiful meal ticket for him for far too long.
That's a shame as the people I know that work there don't want to go on strike but feel they have to support the union. Before anyone says blindly I think it's more to do with the fact that they feel that the talks aren't being taken seriously due to the seniority of the representatives of the company that are being sent to these meetings. As a result of CV there is so much stuff being bought online and in theory, awful though it sounds, RMG is looking at being pretty darn busy. A lot of these people may well find it more convenient to carry on buying online so it would be be a pity if that coincides with RMG workers being on strike. I hope they sort it out
RE: Scary thought. BKR is offline but gas still near 15 yr lows!27 Feb 2020 14:05
I like RRE but they have a lot of de comm costs and TBH I'm not such a fan of their BoD but I wouldn't go on that BB and post that as it's a personal view and I'm not invested there. If you believe gas prices are at the bottom of the cycle then you buy. I'm not being funny but why do you feel the need to post here if you have zero interest. Why do you want to buy a company like ESL? That's not to mention some of the other rackety outfits
The crazy thing was that everyone and his dog was saying that the FTSE was waay undervalued to the DOW which needed a pin stuck in it but the FTSE has dropped a corresponding amount. I can remember a few year back when the FTSE used to trade at roughly half the DOW - look at the difference now. Still it will be a good excuse for companies looking to trim their dividends - they have something to blame it on. For those that don't then yields could look pretty impressive
Their half year report is due around the 7th March . Thing is he has liked a trade or three in HUR in the past but nothing which is another thing that made me wonder whether he has been made inside. I think part of today is that HUR has become a useful proxy oil short since it attracted plenty of flies so when the sp showed signs of life anyone shorting who knows their stuff will know that they will flit off for a couple of percent especially on a Friday. HUR always seems to overshoot when the oil price takes a battering
Sorry only just seen your post - yes absolutely It's one of two things he's either got a massive short running which he wouldn't need to notify as with 5% unlikely to be net short or he has thumped the table and possibly been made privy to what the current data and plans are and as a result be made "inside" I can't find anything on the CRS fund information to say that the fund manager can run short positions but someone else may find it so in the absence of that I'm going for the "inside" option. IMO of course :)
I'm fascinated by the silence of Richard Bernstein - he's an activist investor so you can't tell me that he hasn't been at the very least on the phone or more likely in for a meeting. I think CA's results come out before HUR's so it will be interesting to see if there is any comment.

I think also that because so many of us have been caught by companies like XEL, SOU, BLVN etc that you struggle to trust the BOD's of these companies which is ridiculous. If AIM were regulated as it should be and the shenanigans that some of these companies themselves indulge in reference placings etc then I don't think some of us would lose our nerve so quickly. What I learn't from both XEL and BLVN was to watch the II's as when they jump ship and desert a company then they probably know something you don't. Also anything that appears in a video or interview with the likes of proactive and isn't in an RNS I take with a pinch of salt. So far that hasn't happened here. Hoping for a strong finish that would be nice for a change

Cocopops I totally get that it's an issue I have too! Hence I mainly try and stay away from AIM. One of the dirtiest pieces of work posted just prior the last drill on here about how fantastic it was going to be. I had a feeling then since the price hadn't been reacting and HUR themselves squashed it that the chances were that he was up to no good but like a twonk did nothing about it. Same MO post some stuff to lull people with his oily credentials and then stick it to them. You can only hope that they get impaled on their own spike right where it hurts!!!
