FTSE FOR FRIDAY (FTSE:UKX) Something interesting happened with our "private" FTSE projection for Thursday as we'd given a bottom target at 7707 points. FTSE Futures hit 7707, crucially not going below. Firstly, it tells we were watching the correct trend and second, it suggests we should anticipate a near term bounce.
LLOYDS BANK (LSE:LLOY) As always, it's difficult to contain our excitement when writing about a UK Retail Bank. The absolute thrill generated, running analysis on a share with a trading range of just 4p during the last few months, can only compare with watching a tree grow.
WEBIS HOLDINGS (LSE:WEB) Some shares are like politicians. Every now and then, one comes along which you've never heard of and, for a brief moment in time, you think they might be interesting. Webis are unlike politicians tho' as it looks like it might actually prove worthwhile.
JOHNSTON PRESS (LSE:JPR) Our last expedition into the potentials of JPR (link here), a Scottish media company reputed to alienate their readership with frequent anti-Scottish stances in their main title (The Scotsman), speculated as to whether a bottom of 7.5p would make a guest appearance.

UK OIL & GAS (LSE:UKOG) Launching directly into "boring" probably isn't the best way to start a riveting report. Alas, UKOG is displayed one of these charty things which always bears some scrutiny, the often ignored and derided "Flying Monkey" pattern.
VODAFONE (LSE:VOD) This is a share which has, unfortunately, tended to bring disappointment over the last few years. Similar to any new model of mobile phone, share price moves promise a lot yet tend deliver anything new. Worse, price movements prove rather rangebound over the last while.
A G BARR (LSE:BAG) The makers of Scotlands other national drink were supposed to be left reeling when US President Trump declared war on them. The problem; Barrs Irn Bru stains cannot be removed from his Scottish Hotel carpets. The greater surprise is why no-one thought to ask a Scot how to remove the ginger stain?
FTSE THIS WEEK (FTSE:UKX) Given the FTSE closed Fridays session at 7725, we allowed ourselves a little pat on the back as we've spent a while mentioning that number. As regular readers will know, that's probably a problem! For some reason, "important" numbers tend be important.
