If you are impressed with the performers on ‘Britain’s Got Talent,’ wait until you see the stars that Glencore Xstrata (LSE:GLEN) is bringing the to stage!  The Company’s share price, which has lagged since the merger, was up modestly this morning by 0.48% to 303.95, a 1.45 pence increase.

Latchways' Heights: a Breath of Fresh Air

Jun 10 2013 @ 10:15
I like companies that operate quietly in a well-defined niche, don’t catch a lot of headlines, operate efficiently, provide an important service, fill a vital need, and pay a handsome dividend.  Latchways (LSE:LTC) is that kind of company. The share price of LTC was up by what some would call “a modest 2.41%” today.  But […]

Accendo Markets Weekly Roundup, 7 Jun 2013 - NFP beat + negative revision = non-event = good = status quo = relief rally

Jun 07 2013 @ 10:30
After all the recent fear and uncertainty that markets’ upcoming monthly ‘fixes’ might be reduced due to the dealer restricting supply on improved economic/labour market outlook, the major piece of data used to decide supply (NFP) came in at a level which was OK but neither good enough to intensify fears of restricted supply nor […]

FastJet on Fast Track

Jun 07 2013 @ 10:15
There are two reasons that I don’t usually write about small-cap companies.  The first is that that they don’t typically generate much in the way of big news.  The second is that my boss keeps telling me to follow the Big news.  Well, today I think that FastJet (LSE:FJET), a company with a market cap […]

Jun 05 2013 @ 10:14
I’ve been watching ARM Holdings (LSE:ARM) for some time now.  It is a fascinating company on its own merit, regardless of its public status.  It almost defines “leading edge technology,” and it is unique in its offering of proprietary circuit designs without manufacturing the chips themselves.  Its high-performance, power-efficient circuit designs have propelled the company...

Market Word of the Day: "Unstable"

Jun 03 2013 @ 09:26
Just to be certain, before putting fingers to keyboard for this story, I looked up the word “unstable” in the dictionary.  It defined “unstable” as “not stable.”  I may not be the sharpest knife in the drawer, but even my cat could have figured that out.  Digging a little deeper, I found the following definition […]

May 31 2013 @ 08:41
Today is 31 May 2013.  Bumi (LSE:BUMI), the bane of Nat Rothschild’s existence, has, at long last, released its final report for the year ending 31 December 2012.  Its share price did absolutely nothing for the 39th consecutive day because trading of Bumi shares was suspended on the London exchange on 22 April for the […]
