That the highly successful duo of George Godber and Georgina Hamilton, who are leaving Miton, are bound for Polar......not sure how true this is as personally I would have thought the Miton set up might have been better. Miton's strengths are smaller / medium UK companies and the research that goes with it.......wouldn't say that about Polar and will be in no rush to follow them if they do end up at Polar.
Perhaps the directors have woken up to the fact that their remaining customers and shareholders do not appreciate POLR being run mainly for the benefit of their employees, and have accordingly lowered both fees and salary costs.
No idea, only bought yesterday looking for good divi but not much capital excitement so was a bit surprised. Been googling but nothing on the newswires. Could well see it back down tomorrow if this was on a rumour
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 done with and we expect the stock to now rise, now that 'he' is out of the way? You'd be wrong in many instances, for 'he' the shorter, is often followed by others that 'help' keep the stock down !
Some stocks fall after GOOD NEWS!
Is it being shorted or normal profit taking?
The underlying reason for many pi's taking early profits, is simply they are afraid they'll be left in paper losses AND because of the fear of shorting !
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 !

# 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?
So, there is the 'catch 22' scenario. 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). .They're all involved together!
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 in order to tank the sp to abnormally low levels.
When the campaign is complete, the results will be reviewed by Govt legislators re- further action! The branch of the FSA ie FCA will be asked by Davide Serra to conduct an investigation into short selling practices, with the view to either:- an outright ban on short selling, or to be better and more vigorously regulated !

They both have very similar forecast growth rates, PER, PEG, No debt, Cash Flow greater than EPS.
Polar has a better history of growth, but I look more at the future so this is a minor point. The main reason is Polar is performing better, but this could change very quickly. Also Mark Slater has just bought Polar.
There is nothing more to it than that really. Brewin looks good
A good write up, has been on my watch list for a while. Unfortunately the good AUM figures were the catalyst for good move and now Slater has them too. I say unfortunately because I haven't bought in yet. I will wait for pullback and then add this to my portfolio.
I'm just in the very early stages of putting a website together on the shares I have bought and why.
Discussion boards do have useful links to information and articles but often you need to wade through ramping or de-ramping so I would like it to be a site where investors can go and go to find articles easily.
Obviously I own the shares so rate the company but I do try to highlight any negatives
If you have recent links to research / articles (good or bad) on any of the shares on my site please use my contacts page and send them to me and I will add them.
My page on Polar Capital is complete but the rest I'm working on
Just bought some more as it looks like were off on another upward leg. (422p currently).
This is such an amazing share: yield of over 5%, PEG of 0.3 and positive news flow with new fund recently launched.
Quietly does it, on and upwards, with those dividends also!
First AIM purchased in my ISA...
