Was just watching Michael Buerke talking to H & Ms Royal cake maker, and they were running through a few favourite royal dishes and wines for Saturday.
I was delighted to hear that Megans top of the list wine for the day is ..............................................wait for it....................................The Tig.
What taste and perception the girl has.
And to think one day, she might inherit some of the mineral rights and accompanying royalties from under the Woodsmith Mine. Paid for with some of my hard earned brass.
You don't get owt for nowt.
Wow Skegness.. we went to Mablethorpe once a year. By Thursday mum and dad had ran out of money and would take us on long walks. The joy of getting a threepenny bit and blowing it all at the fair ground, but never on a ride as always wanted something to take back that night, even if it was a cardboard periscope.
OK - Popeye - I can see you do not believe me.
Age wise , I am 21 just approaching 80. I had a bank manager dad who's best man was one of the founders of Redmayne Bentley, and like all good dads, he discussed all his reccommended tips with me in the pram, ( once I had learned to talk -that is ). Park Yorkshire Holdings was an absolute slammer. My mum did not have a clue. But she used to play bridge with me in the pram to make up for it. Two of lifes valued lessons and essential skills learned early. And that meant that once the war was over , he made more than enough investment profit every year to give us a good holiday. ( and a good schooling ) Places like Skegness, Abersoch and Whitby. So along with the bottled milk and his allotment grown veggies, I had investment juice running through my veins. And it has never gone away.
So nine years of holding / buiding SXX is just a lucky but well researched bit of archeology.
As for Freeports, I am no expert, but my understanding is that imports coming into the UK through a Freeport with intent to re-export can have a customs immunity stamped on them, which speeds up the processes. Helps the big import /export cos.
I was actually thinking that a Belfast Freeport might actually secure the Good Friday agreement, and stop the IRA / Sinn Fein trying to use honest trade as a reason for re-incarnating mayhem and destruction.
But imagine Teesside reborn under the excting leadership of Ben Houchen, Simon Price, Robert Goodwill, Chris Fraser , et al, 20 million tons of Poly4 a year flowing down the river, 40 trawlers back in Whitby, The Dogger bank wind Turbine under way,
- Yorkshire will be reborn.
So treat me gently, - I am getting too old to fight.
In nearly 70 years of investing, SXX is really quite unique in nearly every aspect
Do you're beyond 90, or what?
I wouldn't express it thaaat strong(in (self)only 10, 15(investing)ys, or whatever), but basically agree.
The current momentum, the true possible risk, the gathering backing, Freeports, Mayors, MPs, Whitbyites, crop trial data, the significant media articles, the expanding staff levels, etc. etc. are raising this share into the bright, bright sunlight, and one would have to be seriously pessimistic to predict no future.
Can you explain me what "Freeports" mean?
I wish you kids, which forgive you the biggest sins. : ) : )
It reads well - but is there a slight weakness? The target is 80 trials and they only have 14. And it looks as though they need a couple more marketing deals before Stage2 can be seriously approached (and all they say is that negotiations continue). So there could be a shortage of news for a while.
On the positive side, deals already negotiated are expected to achieve $145 per ton against $125 for bank planning purposes. I assume they are hoping/expecting higher prices for spot sales. And construction seems to be on time and on budget.
There will be a massive sigh of relief and higher prices when (if) stage 2 is done and dusted.
GK - my appreciation as always. You are - as usual - a quarter light year ahead of me ( and most others ) - and I must admit that as an accomplished dinosaur, I do keep off the Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, Whats App, et al. feeds. My children are disgusted with me , but what the hell.And I do talk by mouth to my children. But I do also read and I do research, and I do check.

And that puts a very good layer of icing on the polycake.
My instinct tells me that we will have pre AGM news, and good news meanz prizes.
Printed today - Sunday - 2/3rds of page article - in Biz Section P.4.
Very impressive, - you don't get this sort of coverage for second raters.
All grist to the Mill ( House gang ).
Good run up for the AGM.
And great for Ben Houchen. The new Teesside Powerhouse guru. let it all rip.
A number of companies have recently closed their short positions in Sirius, meaning that the percentage of shares shorted has dropped from ~7% a month ago to 3.68% today. A reassuring sign. May top up on Monday.
The recent conversions was on the basis of shares changing hands in an "orderly manner".
Looking at the one month graph and considering daily volumes, it seems to me that the SP is allowing shares to transact to bigger hands at "fair" price. As around 20 April and yesterday the SP was corrected against what appeared to be heard inflating the SP on previous daily small volume relative to % movement of shares disclosed after the close of the day.
We have seen on occasion in past how this share can inflate and deflate very rapidly. Given the rise over the short week it was no surprise to see the correction when comparing to the one month graph post CB conversions and TS announcement.
I prefer the SP to reflect (company) facts rather than heard sentiment.
The exact nature of the second tranche financing is the principal unknown, and it should be resolved soon(ish). Best possible would be all debt with large chunk guaranteed by the government (which is company policy). If they pull this off the price will rise strongly. Any all debt solution will be seen positively. If they have to give an equity kicker there may be a modest pull back, but even with another half million of equity the shares look cheap. Don't be caught with your boots half full.
All the news so far has been good. This is a class operation.
If it was any other share, I would be tempted to agree in parts. But it isn't and I don't. We have no idea what Stage II will look like and I am a little reticent of leaving myself exposed with fewer shares.
The truest statement you have made Rog is "" that it is just your opinion "" -
and "" in my opinion "" quite unsupported by fact s.
I could refer you to a significant number of major upcoming events that may, could , would, will, affect the SP, ( none of which could be observed as negative ) but perhaps your depth of research is either non existent or shallow.
At this stage of developments SXX has reached as high as it will go. Inevitably, next few month will drop considerably lower, (has started already), and when financing comes along, it will be at its lowest level. After second phase financing it will start rising again to whatever level Market decides it should be. Recent rise is just opportunity, to cash in the profits for those who are positive. It is totally pointless to watch these benefits melt down like a snow in Sahara. There will be further opportunities to buy back, especially after 2nd financing. Remember first financing was done at 47% discount. As I said, just my opinion.
I totally agree I will be watching closely love this share been in since 17pence never had my timing perfect with ups and downs, I also thing the big boys have been buying in I notice the two plokers on here last week saying sell are not about 😀😀😀😀😀 i into a little battle with them. I think it will settle about 35 over the summer if it does differ lower I am topping up cheers to all holders
As yet, the SP movement could be for all sorts of reasons.
But almost certainly not a huge surge in P.I purchase.
Could be I.I. buying on City whisper.
Could be some more take off sign ups.
Could be Both.
Always good to stimulate a forthcoming AGM.
The LSE board is even suggesting a BHP approach or a Warren Buffet takeover - probably improbable.
Whatever - something appears to be stirring.
But the Happiness monitor is generating optimistic thoughts.
The relentless steady rise over the past 2 weeks has indicted to me that something "firm" is happening. Question is whether this will shoot significantly higher in the short time or follow the "saw tooth" pattern of the chart that has been consistent over past months. Have cautiously set a couple of limit sells just in case.
The recent price hike is perfectly normal behaviour if you look at the trading stats.
There has been some healthy volume in the last 10 days which has helped the new shares (from CB's) to be absorbed easier.
Historically, there hasn't been a lot of trading activity between 30p and 35p so once the price hit 30p again on it's way up then 35p would have inevitably come quickly, under current buying pressure.
I would predict that the price will top out at 35p-36p in the short term (2-4wks) and rest for a while, until perhaps early Autumn when traders will start to get excited about the then imminent news of stg2 financing. It is because of this anticipated finance deal in late Q3 - early Q4 that I think the share price won't retrace much.
Is this just the market catching up with a good news story, or is something more aggressive afoot? Surely too early for a takeover? St2 funding looking more certain and insiders stocking up? Who knows but lets not get too greedy! 1p a day for the rest of the year is asking for trouble!!!
I cannot complain about a rise first thing of over 1p (and wont) but lets hope this is driven by some positive news such as progress on Government Guarantee, 2nd Stage Financing or ????
I guess I will have to wait for a bad day to top up but then again, but hoping there are none :-) ....1p a day for the rest of the year would do nicel
all IMHO and DYOR y
best to all
