Trends and Targets for 15/12/2017

FTSE FOR FRIDAY (FTSE:UKX) Sometimes we wonder at our logic. For instance, the FTSE is now regarded as probably going up but from the point at which it closed Thursday, it'll probably go down a bit first. Closing the day at 7448 points, we'll not be aghast to witness weakness toward 7431 points, then a bounce.

Lloyds Bank (LSE:LLOY) It's time for our monthly visit to Lloyds where we shuffle words around to try disguise the fact we're saying the same thing we've said for the last few months. Oddly though, this time we are saying it with a vague expectation something is about to happen.

CARD FACTORY - again (LSE:CARD) When we gave this as one of our ISA shares for 2017 (link here) the share price has performed in a fashion which makes the UK Brexit bloke seem sensible. It went up, it met our targets, it collapsed. But thankfully, with nothing close to our expectations.

Trends and Targets for 12/12/2017

MARSTONS PLC (LSE:MARS) The current meteor shower (think it is The Haemorrhoids) reminded just how bright Mars shines in the current dark winter sky. It also served to remind us to update our outlook against Marstons share price as we last glanced at them in early 2015

FTSE this week (FTSE:UKX) & GBP EUR In common with, we suspect, most of the UK, we've some doubts as to the integrity of any vaunted agreement between our esteemed leaders and the European mob. However, currency markets appear on the verge of taking it seriously.

Trends and Targets for 8/12/2017

FTSE FOR FRIDAY (FTSE:UKX) Sometimes, the utter boredom inflicted by the market leads one down a strange path. Thursday was a case in point, the morning session used productively by figuring out the lead guitar bit of Girls Aloud tune, "Love Machine". Only once note perfect did the "why" question rear its head?

Trends and Targets for 7/12/2017

RENTOKIL (LSE:RTO) Rentokil was one of our proposals for an ISA candidate in February. It's due a bit of an update as, similar to AG Barr (a solid 15% rise), the share price has now met and exceeded our target levels. In fact, it doubled BARR's performance with a 30% rise.

Trends and Targets for 6/12/2017

A G BARR (LSE:BAG) This lot last featured in February (link here) where we proposed them as an ISA candidate. We've tried avoid discussing price movements since but their 'The Snowman' Xmas TV advert (in Scotland only?) makes them hard to ignore - lyrically a work of genius.

Trends and Targets for 5/12/2017

PROSPEX OIL revisited. (LSE:PXOG) When discussing share prices, sometimes we will appear to use "weasel words" in what can be perceived as an attempt to cover our derrière. The truth is rather more boring - share prices usually do not go straight to target.

Trends and Targets for 4/12/2017

The FTSE this week (FTSE:UKX) We tend take absurd efforts in measuring index movement as part of our ongoing attempts to identify pressures which will effect the FTSE. Sometimes these efforts can be wasted, sometimes they bare extraordinary fruit.
