Deramping SHORTERS !
Shorting a rising stock....is much worse when it is done by your resident posters that seemingly are your buddies and convince 'long' holders to give up!
What many pi's fail to grasp is the extent that shorting is taking place. Often we tend to think that the 'shorter' is gone, 'he' is out of the way? You'd be wrong in most cases, for ( he ), the shorter, is often joined by others that keep the stock down !
Some stocks fall after GOOD NEWS!
Shorting or normal profit taking?
The main reason for many pi's selling, is they are afraid they'll be left in losses AND because of the fear of shorters !
Consolidating shares often sees the sp fall as the multi-bagger potential is greatly reduced. Shorters know this and 'get their digs in' with a distinct advantage
Quindell has consolidated 15 for 1 and guess what? The shares are tanking! Probably being shorted again and not just by the professionals. Ordinary investors are having a go as well (if you can't beat 'em....?).
BUT, where does that leave the genuine investor that has put stocks like QPP into their pension funds?...holding losses again!
* Once pi's know the stock is being shorted...they'll SELL UP IN THEIR DROVES !
We can't both WIN !
The 'shorts' therefore 'win' their bets, whereas the 'longs' lose the best part of their investment, possibly for some time to come......and just when you thought this couldn't go any lower, THEY'LL SHORT THE STOCK AGAIN !
* Thanks for all your support. We are now heading towards 5,000 votes!
* Investors are saying something? They are voting in their hundreds !
# The big problem with shorting is that THEY (the shorters) WOULD most likely lose most of their money IF they just 'bet' on the price going down without trying to 'help' it down?
'Catch 22' .... No one would know of an RNS to be released that will contain BAD NEWS, if they did and then 'shorted' the stock, then they are guilty of 'insider trading'.
The only sure way to short a stock and WIN is to spread dis-information to defame the company with help from other posters that are in concert with them. To ENSURE that they don't lose the biggest part of their 'short', ironically, then, they must deramp with (seemingly) believable posts.
* When the pro's do it, they simply get the media or well known 'crooked' tipsters, analysts or brokers to do it for them. (say no more).
# The campaign against shorting is for the benefit of the 'cheated' investors that cannot control their investments due to the dirty tricks played out by co-ordinated shorting !
The results will be reviewed by Govt legislators for further action! The FCA will be asked by Davide Serra to conduct an investigation into short selling practices, with the view to either ban short selling, or to be better regulated !
Good predicted yield, low PER, good predicted earnings growth after the little slow-down in 2012, good ROCE, cash in the bank, interest and divis well covered, price-to-sales only about 0.13, yet brokers are reducing earnings forecasts and the SP has done nothing much but bounce 30%up and down for the last couple of years. Don't they like Julia Robertson, the new CEO, or is it just that they think margins a bit too tight? Is there any reason not to buy more if you only have a small position in IPEL?
I think it's just a case of IPEL being under the radar screen (and under valued) IMHO. That said, generally when there is a big jump in a short space of time, it's not uncommon for stocks to trade sideways or even gradually drop back a bit. However, this one has a high proportion held by institutions and not much left for the rest of us (free float). Any price drop, like this morning, that is not on high volume is probably just the MM's trying to shake us out of the market for Impellam.
you also need to bear in mind that with only 45.1m shares issued improving results lead to increasing earnings per share. Last year, IPEL had eps of 46.7p and with projected eps of 59.7p (for the current year - a 27.8% increase), the current PE of about 8 looks very modest!
Am I the only investor that thinks Impellam is being ignored by the "experts"?
I think that for a Company with a turnover in excess of £1billion and a very low PSR (around 0.08), coupled with improving prospects deserves more attention. In recent weeks, there have been some very good (upside) surprises in companies involved in the recruitment business.
Checking around, I've noted the following:
1. Sharescope rates it a "Buy"
2. Hemscott shows Cenkos Securities rating it as a "Buy" with eps of 43.3p forecast for the y/e 31.12.2010.
Newbie here.. i've noticed that the share price has jumped lately on back of the recent RNS seems to be a nice rise daily. What is going on? Anybody still invested here that can run me up to speed in this company is it worth investing?
