In this interview Share Talk spoke with Michael Masterman, Chairman of AIM-listed W Resources (WRES). Michael gives an overview of the company’s three Tungsten projects La Parrilla, Régua, Tarouca and their Copper/Gold project CAA/Portalegre. He also talks about the recent Montforte-Tinoca Portuguese exploration licence that WRES was granted that contains the Tinoca and Azeiteiros copper mines.
Michael goes into detail and covers what this means for WRES going forward, their goals, long-term prospects and potential.
The year of 2013 was very productive with a staggering performance of the FTSE 250 with many companies, about a dozen as I recall, increasing in value by over 100% and another 30 increasing by some 50%. The FTSE 250 appreciated by some 26%; indeed only about 12% of the FTSE 250 declined in value during that sweet year. How good was 2013 when compared to other recent years? Well, maybe the best way to answer that is to take a look at the wider indices the FTSE All Share which itself gained 17% in 2013 whilst only one of the bracketing years of 2011, 12 & 2014, 15 gave a positive return. So where does this lead us? Well to my view it just shows that the majority of the time we exist in a stock picker’s market. Yes, we can be risk averse and just simply go for an index tracker route or as I do, invest via the stock picking route. For myself, stock picking by and large has been for the best part of the last twenty years based on screening stocks (or may I say whittling) down the total universe of shares to come up with a relatively small number of shares for more in-depth investigation.

This week, Zak Mir hosts a panel of contributors, discussing Cyber Crime, Cyber Security, and Cyber Defence.
Certain types of behaviour, such as insider dealing and market manipulation, can amount to market abuse. Firms must have safeguards in place to identify and reduce the risk of market abuse and other financial crime. The UK’s civil market abuse regime aims to ensure the smooth functioning of the market for financial securities by curbing behaviours that distort the price of securities and harm investor confidence in the integrity and impartiality of the market.
At the EU-level, concerns of market distortion arising through regulatory arbitrage have led to the introduction of new harmonising measures in the form of an EU Regulation on Market Abuse (“MAR”). This briefing provides an overview of some of the key changes which came into affect on 3rd July 2016.
