88 Energy (88e)
A bulletin board favourite of recent weeks saw discussion of the company’s board of directors visit to London. Dave Wall, Paul Basinski and Steve Staley met with shareholders and shared information about the company and their plans going forward and people have asked me to thank @Aberdeen_shares for setting up such a good event and for the team at @88EnergyLtd for attending, it just goes to show what a group of individuals can do to help others.
What are your hopes and expectations from the results to come in circa 6 weeks time? With the potential not to have any Joint Venture in place pre Icewine2 Spud do you think they will need to do a potential fund raise?

Cluff Natural Resources (CLNR)
From the low point towards the end of august to recent highs share holders of Cluff Natural Resources have enjoyed rises over the last few weeks. The company announced that it identified prospects on its P2248 licence in the North Sea which could increase prospective resources estimates to about 3trn cubic feet of natural gas. Cluff Natural Resources expects to generate interest from companies operating in the region to attract farm out partners. In February the company extended its memorandum of understanding with Halliburton until February 2018 to accelerate the development of its assets.

Kibo Mining Plc (KIBO)
Kibo Mining Plc announced this week that it has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with General Electric International Inc. this is a major milestone in respect to developing the Mbeya Coal to Power Project. The MOU provides GE and its affiliate companies to supply the equipment and technology to the project. In addition to also exploring opportunities where it can assist Kibo in bringing the Project to a successful financial close. Kibo and GE are currently in discussions to set out the terms and conditions of their collaboration into a binding agreement.
With this major piece of news for shareholders is this the first in many projects that Kibo Mining have in the pipeline? Do the contracts and agreements have more potential upside in the current share price?

Ocado claimed its best quarterly volume and financial growth in four years this week. Comments about the tough margin environment however seem to have put a dampener on the company. With sales growing 15.4% in the 12 weeks to 7 August, helped by 18.9% growth in average orders per week to 226,000, this being its best performance for five years. With earnings per share estimates have fallen to 0.89p from 1.2p. And why growing sales within the business why isn’t the share price acting accordingly? Do you think the group needs an overhaul in the way it approaches what is a crowded market place? Is now a good entry point for investors?

On Wednesday Sepura PLC warned that earnings for its full financial year could be below expectations, it also announced that its chief executive is taking an extended period of absence.
The communications services provider said orders have been lower than expected in recent months due to delays, mostly through budgetary pressures which are extending product life cycles. In addition, key contract awards in its Systems business have also been delayed.
With the company stating that it will have a significant impact on full-year revenues, and potentially 60% lower than its previous expectations is now a good time to look towards investing after the drops in its share price over the last few months? Is the company now uninvestable due to these delays? With the CEO taking time away from Sepura do you trust the step in of the current Acting CEO Mr Smith?

My thoughts of the week
After multiple interactions with private investors over the last two months, since ‘Steve Shares’ has been in circulation, not many people contact company’s in regards to your investments to fill in any blanks. I would encourage individuals to do this as a matter of course so as you can establish facts as opposed to feelings or thoughts of others on social media. The last two weeks have seen a rise in share price based on facts with Alexander Mining.
With social media and group actions now changing the way in which we invest I feel there could be a shift towards groups spearheading the way forwards in regards to proper research of company’s they are investing within? Now being questioned openly by groups and not just individuals the company’s are under more scrutiny and are information hungry and are quick to ask Questions.
However, in regards to companies, groups and individuals and the way they act within the markets and via social media the Financial Conduct Authority (Fca) and other associated companies such as @actionfrauduk are taking action towards those who misrepresent any information or are spreading untruths. Since rules and regulations were changed in June 2016 we are seeing the first actions against those falling foul of the regulation changes filter through.
If anyone feels like any actions against your company have been misrepresented or false allegations have caused disruption or a fall or rise in share price or dealings with your company you can contact the Fca via these various methods Twitter @TheFca Their website https://www.fca.org.uk/ under the contact section they have a live chat function. Call them on 08001116768 (free phone) or 03005008082 from the UK, or +44 2070661000 if you are abroad. They open Monday to Friday 8am to 6pm and also on Saturday’s 9am to 1pm.
Take action in regards to protecting your investments and trades, and together you can have a fair market to invest in.
