I am not saying that my investment decision is based purely on the spread - I am just pointing out that if the spread is 10/15% or more then even if the sp goes up by 20% you are still only break-even. So, you are obviously looking for big moves but ultimately it is just another reason why in the long run you will struggle as you have to find a share which will gain by even more than that far more often than you find a share which drops or the spread will get you in the end.
Nonsense. Big spread is bad as it means there isn't much of a market for the shares, and to buy only to be immediately 10% or 20% down is a red flag and puts many people off (as it should) When the spread tightens it indicates more demand for the share, and more chance of a rise.
I struggle to see how you think the market will interpret this as good news - if things were set up then he isn't going to leave just before success is he? The only "positive" I could see is that perhaps he tried to force through another placing and was told no, or not while he was still at the company.
Yes, have a decent lump in there. Went blue yesterday but red again today. Plan there long term hold rather than trade although not a great plan so far as I have missed a few trading op's on it. Looking to hold until £10 plus there. Probably hit that next week, although not before going down to 1p in the meantime :)
Fair enough. Not invested myself here at the moment, though I did trade it on the drop to 43 ish (a few months ago) For what it's worth, I am local to the area and I do know that some in the business community here are bullish that more progress will now be seen by the company, and have invested accordingly. I just don't understand people holding when they don't believe, as there is no rule I know about that says you have to try and recover your losses on the same share on which you suffered the losses originally. Best of luck
Good to see some respite for holders here lately. Not really one for me, for anything other than a short term trade anyway, as I am not a fan of the union influence or the potential for political interference but good to see holders making some money back.
