Re: Hurricane Energy (HUR)

Not only 2 separate fields but move valuable oil in the second one! All good so far.

Re: Gold in Sterling Within £10 of Record High

Youfoolishboy, I have been following your AAZ and note it has popped up some 9% today. I'm not sure what caused it, as gold itself is little changed. Last night a report from Bloomberg claimed the Azeri government were looking to buy the 49% of the JV they own with AAZ for the mines. Thy Azeri gove...

Re: Gold in Sterling Within £10 of Record High

I have been buying a gold proxy for some time, I don’t like buying physical gold no dividend only capital growth. I started buying last year as I began to believe the world economy was looking rather shaky. To me now we are heading into a worldwide recession Trump is not going to stop his America Fi...

Re: Tanker attacks!

Found this at lunchtime when looking up what the Israelis are thinking about, maybe it was them that attacked the tankers, looks like its party time for them if this report is true. The fact the PoO has gone down today however suggests no one is believing it. https://www.jpost.com/Middle-East/Iran-N...

Re: Tanker attacks!

None of the public evidence is clear. It apparently took quite a lot of effort to get the crew freed from the custody of the Iranians. The other tanker's crew refused to go with the Iranians and managed to resist the persuasion long enough for a US naval vessel to take them. If I was going to take ...

Re: Tanker attacks!

At 9:26 a.m. local time the Iranians requested that the motor vessel Hyundai Dubai, which had rescued the sailors from the M/T Altair, to turn the crew over to the Iranian FIACs. The motor vessel Hyundai Dubai complied with the request and transferred the crew of the M/T Altair to the Iranian FIACs...

Re: Tanker attacks!

No, Saudi and Iran have many of the same unpleasant traits. They are theocratic states, with very limited human rights. Iran is probably the more aggressive with its Revolutionary Guard causing trouble throughout the region, propping up Basha Al-Assad and supporting Hizbollah. The Saudis cause trou...

Re: Tanker attacks!

Like all conflicts and potential conflicts in which we have a vested interest*, we will all have to take sides, if not now, but eventually. Your viewpoint clearly puts you on the side of the Mullahs. My conscience will not allow me to take that stance, so I must go with the UK and US governments. *...

Re: Tanker attacks!

YFB says Trump doesn't want a war. It's a fair point, he is isolationist rather than interventionist by instinct. But he is also lacking in international experience, and not always the most stable. I would worry he could drag the US, and perhaps others, into a war without intending to. I think the ...

Re: Tanker attacks!

I don't understand the desire to defend the Iranians by some people here. They are ruled by a murderous evil tyranny, with a crazy well armed wing in the Revolutionary Guards. They have survived this long mainly because they have killed or intimidated all the moderates that used to be in that count...

Re: Tanker attacks!

One point to note Trump does not actually want war. His rhetoric on the campaign trail was all about withdrawing troops from the Middle East and he has done that in office and increased massively the risks for his allies, the Kurds, in Syria plus the aircraft carrier that has been sent to the area i...

Its been a few years since I went to Cuba for Xmas having done it 3 in a row but can recommend it as a new experience, communism is not dead yet! Havana you should do before it becomes completely Americanized again. Weather perfect that time of year.

Re: Tanker attacks!

The facts are very varied an hour ago one of the tankers had allegedly sunk now seems to have refloated! I would say the torpedoes theory is a bit far fetched as well I am betting on Saudi and limpet mines, or Miss Scarlett in the library with the knife. Saudi are the ones that benefit most from the...

Is it the Woodford effect? Is it something else? If its only Woodford then I will hold and buy more on the basis the company is sound I can always sell when they recover if I am top heavy and take profits so will wait a little to see how much lower they will go.

Hi youfoolishboy, Well I have about 15% of my portfolio in prefs right now which I bought at the tail end of last year in the mid 110s (also topped up a previous RAVP holding around then). I agree that RAVP hasn’t done much, but all of the others are up nicely between 3 and 9% including dividends. ...

Re: Central Bank Gold Purchases Surged 74% in 2018

I tend to agree a multi currency world is more likely I am just betting on instability driving people to gold I dont think it will be the next currency of the world. Plus there is the threat of a turndown in the world due to trade wars at the moment so again always a good time for gold.
