Re: Just Some Nice Music Thread Here...Post it Here...

This thread has now racked up precisely 10,001 views. So, to acknowledge the occasion ...

"City of Angels," 10,000 Maniacs (live, 1989)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w5Zg-Dz0aWw

The video itself is nothing special, but Natalie Merchant's voice is terrific.

Re: Ashley (Laura) Holdings PLC (ALY)

Interesting point about the balance sheet, and I could see that as the basis for potentially buying into ALY as an asset-based value play. But as a consumer spending/Far East play, I would think there must be far better prospects than this one. IMV, it's a tinpot with a tired brand and a chequered f...

Re: Yellow Cake Flotation

(is your nickname a reference I should recognise? I feel it is but can't put my finger on it!) No, it's just something that popped into my head in an inebriated moment. You are correct to be wary of confirmation bias, but in the specific case of uranium, the argument for structural underpricing doe...

DP Eurasia (DPEU)

Is anyone out there feeling brave? DPEU* has plunged 27% since the close of Thursday's session and is down 41% so far in August. Of course, there's a good reason for that: DPEU gets three-quarters of its sales from Turkey, which seems to be slipping into a full-blown currency and debt crisis. And mo...

"I Wonder What She's Doing Tonight," Tommy Boyce and Bobby Hart (1967) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mfnlBXLHd08 A very well crafted song from a duo who knew a thing or two about coming up with pop hits. It's a shame to think that this song only went to #8 in the charts when crap like &q...

Re: Buy/Sell/Hold

The past few months have been rather dismal for owners of gold, which traded above $1,350 an ounce as recently as 19 April and is now around $1,220/oz. And looking at a two-year chart, gold has definitively made a lower low , violating the pattern of higher highs and higher lows that played out duri...

Re: Card Factory (CARD)

hope its the bottom, but plan to hold long term. Agreed. I have not topped up, but to be clear, that is down to a desire to avoid becoming too heavily weighted in a single stock, rather than any concern about CARD's performance as a business. Considering the serious pressures on the UK retail secto...

Re: Tesco's mystery 'new store format'

Could it inject new life into this share held in quite a few HYPs (mine included)? Or will it all end in tears? Tesco shares have been looking pretty lively in recent months. In the year through June, the stock recorded nine up months versus only three down months, and the 14.6% gain in April was t...

What a terrific voice. And the first song written by Mick Jagger and Keith Richards to become a top 10 U.K. hit.

Yellow Cake, a pure-play uranium investment vehicle, plans to go public on AIM with trading expected to start next month. The plan is to hold uranium that will be purchased from Kazakh producer Kazatomprom, giving investors exposure to the price of the metal without any involvement in mining. The in...
