Bigbench, I totally agree. I think we are seriously cheap at the moment if you can believe in the plans of the company going forward. I've met Mohammed Saghiri & think he just wants what is best for Morocco. That's the kind of alignment I really appreciate. I remember years ago when Sound were valued roughly the same as they are today...but with far fewer tangible prospects - surely they can repeat that amazing rise they had back in 2011, when things were much more risky & uncertain than before the sucessful well tests at Tendrara! We can catch that train again but hopefully this time we will know when to get off!!
Lyndon, you certainly made me laugh with that post!
Bigbench, no we don't moan; we evaluate the current sp & company value & make our own personal decisions as to risk versus potential...& then we buy or maybe sell! I still believe we have another shot at a big rise & will be buying accordingly - acording to when I believe we have hit rock bottom - probably passed it in any case............................
Testpack, you must have had one serious operation by the NHS when you had that 'sense of Humour Bypass'...are you telling me you have never joked, poked fun or even just had pet names for your place of employment? Even self-employed folk I know have a sense of humour about their work - you, it seems, have no humour whatsoever & in my book that makes you a very sad individual! The sort of person who would rather whinge than roll their sleeves up & get on with it. A sense of humour right now at the NHS is essential & I am just glad the likes of you are not my colleague.........have a great weekend & stay safe!
Pontcanna, I never once encouraged anyone to buy. You will never find a post where I actively encouraged folk to buy shares! Don't mistake enthusiasm for coertian!
As for just being an 'admin guy' you are wide of the mark. My NHS job entails various duties where I literally muck in with whatever has to be done & I have never been more proud to work for such a great cause as our National Health Ssrvice...I wear my ID with pride & even dangle it from my reversing mirror when driving!
Have a great weekend.............
Thanks Jack, I will do. But fingers crossed one of my close colleagues tests negative...I wont know until after this weekend.
Right now I am concerned for me & especially for my wife, who is probably more vulnerable than me. This could go on for months & even years & so there is now a new paradigm, or a new normal that could threaten to drive us all apart...even though we are closer than ever in the 'unreal world' of the internet...a net which has become a lifeline for many! I'm just grateful I have a beautiful garden in the SouthDowns National Park I can relax in when returning from a hospital shift but I sympathise with anyone who doesn't have access to a garden, who maybe live in a high rise. I see colleagues at the hospital who are paler than Dracula!
Thanks for that comment Sage. I am still invested & will almost certainly be buying more shares as I still believe in our prospects. In the meantime I am still reporting for duty at my local NHS Hospital & doing my bit, even though some of my close colleagues are self-isolating with suspected Covid & I suspect it is only a matter of time before I am...
Good to see a guy sat on a local roundabout with a cross of St George flag & 'keep Calm & Carry On' banner talking to motorists as they passed by inspiring all on our national day!!
Audible, you have shown a complete lack of understanding of the situation. We are not offering a "nutrient restricted diet". We are just consolidating our many choices down to what we & our dieticians think feasible, bearing in mind we may have a reduced catering ability. It makes sense to concentrate our efforts on a core menu. I hope that is clear to you? I'm only talking about my Hospital but it may apply in many others soon. Simplification in every aspect of life is surely a good thing in the light of current circumstances...
Just popped into my department at the hospital I work at (I am using up vacation days) & we have now gone into C19 menu mode. This means we offer a much reduced choice of food for our patients. This makes sense as we can simplify the cooking process in readiness for any shortages of staff. I also wanted to advise my team not to congregate in small offices. We had a situation at my hospital where Costa Coffee were giving away free coffee...causing a build up of folk wanting free coffee. Our Cheif Executive walked through the main entrance, saw what was going on and closed the whole thing down.
I took advantage of Sainsburie's offer to admit essential workers only at 07:30; flashed my ID & picked up one or two essentials...namely anti-bacterial soap, which I haven't been able to find. Oddly enough, coffee filters & amazingly toilet tissue & even pasta! It was quite odd passing through the queue (safely) whilst flashing my NHS ID.
I heard earlier that even 30 year olds in good health are dying so nobody is safe from this disease.
Wash your hands, keep your distance & dont pick your nose!!
Cheers & stay safe......Crude
Well, I guess Libraries are the first public sector - maybe one of the only public services - that can shut down. Libraries in Sussex are now closed. But how many other Public Departments could do likewise? Maybe town planners & architects? I can't imagine 'Trading Standards' will have much to do in this present economically depressed climate. Museums, the BBC ...the list could go on but it will never include our amazing NHS! No matter who you are & what you do for the NHS - you are a vital worker & a part of a chain that keeps Britain safe! We cannot just close shop like some other Public Sector departments - we HAVE to be on watch; at work & on call 24-7!

Oilpimpbxb....you say that James is a "spanker"...but I know he put his heart & soul into the belief that Tendrara would be the beginnings of a new hydrocarbon provincle & he maintains that view to this day: he is not the person that many make him out to be! He is not an Aim crook, he is just another small-cap O&G CEO who belived in their project & tried to do the best by investors...financing the company whilst trying to keep dilution to a minimum & offering real upside potential. I live in hope that new CEO, Mohammed will progress our Tendrara project to the satisfaction of all investors.
I've got a lovely picture of me holding that award up at a Park Lane hotel like I was Bobby Moore in 66 hoisting aloft the Jules Rimet trophy..................those were the days my friends we thought they'd never end, we'd sing and dance forever & a day, we'd live the life we choose, we'd fight & never lose cause we were foolish & always had our way......la la la la la la - etc & so on!
Whimsical mood Crude
Kelvin, I'm mystified why Sound didn't release an RNS advising investors on the state of the 'exclusive rights' deal with a private equity company & with a timeline that expired yesterday: if this is a taste of things to come regarding the new way of doing business & the transparency we can expect...I am not impressed! I fully expected an RNS advising about the delay in signing the deal & the lack of it leaves me sceptical, to say the least! We have gone from being the most transparent AIM company to being the least & that saddens me.
NAV, another very interesting video. Food for thought indeed.
'Dennis the Menace' is fast approaching Sussex as the wind & rain increases...but tomorrow will be the epicentre of the storm for Sussex folk. The river Arun floodplain is already flooded so a months worth of rain tomorrow will cause considerable disruption....so it PJs all day for me; a warm snug fire & maybe binge-watch a TV series or two.........
Jack, yes Greg sang 'Cynical' at the gig & yes, very appropriate. Two of my favourite songs are 'Cuckmere Shore' & 'Gibbet Wood', which is a wood very close to where I live where a highway man was hung! Greg is so soulful. He has a new guitarist who is excellent...Paul Linali. I am hoping to catch is next gig in Worthing in March or April.
Jez, I am starting to become more sceptical about 5G. My friend Adrian thinks the same will apply as happened with cigarettes & DDT & other such things that were once thought safe...the truth will out but at what cost.
