Whats hot? Whats not?
Highlands natural resources (HNR)
Hot topic on many news fronts, across social media and hitting the top of the chat boards HNR has had a volatile share price this week. News from the recent annual general meeting were reported as being favourable and positive and talk was about the third tranche of warrants, which have recently caused the fluctuations in the share price. The CEO said these won’t be exercised for the foreseeable future. The general consensus was that the two tranches of shares were now exhausted and allowed free movement of the share price. News came on 30/9/16 that highlighted the facts that Schlumberger have extended the DT Ultravert contract, Helios drilling matched expectations and they were planning to drill a horizontal well on the Eagleford Shale play. Then news in the afternoon that the third Tranche of shares have been exercised explained the share price action on the mornings news.
With so much news flow due in the short and mid term and the results being in line with expectations what are your thoughts in relation to the share price? Will all of the prospects meet their expectations? With the dynamic approach to the teams to combine gas volumes in the two plays do you think the management and drilling teams are excited over the potential of the product?

Covered several issues ago Cloudtag has gone from strength to strength, with the news being talked about the product launch and up and coming meetings. Again some brilliant research by share champion @Liam_Nicholas shows the future potential deals that could be on the table. Here he is in his own words… I posted that world-leading research and innovation hub in nanoelectronics and digital technologies IMEC are hosting a “Nano meets healthcare” event on Tuesday 4th October in Baltimore USA. World leading companies such as Emocha, GSK Bioelectronics, Intel, imec, Johns Hopkins University, Johnson & Johnson Innovation Center, miDiagnostics, National Nanotechnology Initiative Coordination Office, and Phillips and Under Armour as well as others will share their vision on the future of healthcare. I was alerted through the IMEC app that the attendee list had been publicised and CEO of CloudTag Amit Ben-Haim was on the attendee list as a guest, with Chris Van Hoof – Director Wearable Healthcare & Fellow, imec / Holst Centre Professor. Together they are presenting “Human electronic interface – The virtual coach: tools for chronic disease management and for prevention through behaviour change” Imec and Cloudtag Collaborate on High Quality Frictionless Wearable technologies for Lifestyle Coaching.
What are your views and opinions on new investors joining the share after recent rises? What are the expected news flows? Are the bigger players lurking in the shadows for a buyout of the product? Could we see many more excellent pieces of research from @Liam_Nicholas ?

Sports Direct International (SPD)
Famous for its catchy jingle and oversized mugs, Sports Direct shareholders have had a bad run in the media as well as in the share price over the last few months. With the media coverage being negative and the falling in profit margins, is the company now one you could invest in? News fell on Friday of last week about the resignation of the Chief Executive and director of the company Dave Forsey. Does the new manager have the drive and ambition to make the company as good as it once was? Has the fundamentals of the business changed so much to warrant the drop from the recent highs? What would you do to change the company going forwards?
Your thoughts and comments please on #stspd
Independent O&g (IOG)
Talks over social media about troubled times ahead with the board of directors having previously raised so many people’s hopes up with the expected results on the drilling program for ‘Skipper’ The results this morning showed an 11api oil discovery. This would normally indicate that it is most likely to be noncommercial in this current oil climate. With commentary pre and post drill what are your thoughts about the Board of Directors and their hopes and expectations? Are the assets they have targeted sound? Is the potential Vulcan acquisition at risk? Is the lower share price a good potential entry for new holders?

My thought of the week – Deutsche Bank
In today’s world of high technology and computing power it still amazes me how the most needed facts and figures needed globally are only reported on every few months or are kept as an unknown. This week saw the news that Deutsche bank should make a $14bn (€12.5bn) payment to settle an investigation into its sale of residential mortgage-backed securities in the years immediately before the start of the financial crisis. This Following the US Department of Justice proposal earlier this month that the German lender had acted wrongfully. Should pre programmed parameters have been set up by the authorities governing the banks to protect consumers?
Why talks of a bailout by Angela Merkel have been even discussed and furthermore discounted by herself are beyond recognition as the facts are out there. The media states that on paper the bank is worth 60 billion Euros. So initial thoughts are that it should be a massive issue to raise this additional amount needed to fund the payment… The bank only having put aside about a third of that amount it all looks terrible! Enter Co-Chief banker Cryan who has reported that the bank has circa €215billion in reserves. Why has he allowed all of the unrest in the already ailing banking sector? Where are the clarifying statements from him to take the pressure of the sector and indeed Europe? As Europe’s biggest bank all eyes are on them and the future at present is not looking trouble free.
Just a thought… back in March there was a global stress test on all banks worth over $50billion in which Deutsche bank failed. Could this be a move in which to devalue the bank so as next years stress test won’t include them?
