Trends and Targets for 10/04/2018

Lloyds Bank (LSE:LLOY) Writing about Lloyds is similar to cutting the grass - something one would prefer avoid but in reality, it needs done! Just as the lawn outside is starting to look threatening, it's that time of the month where we really must pay attention to another UK retail bank.

FTSE THIS WEEK (FTSE:UKX) The index remains somewhat reticent of exceeding our 7217 points mentioned on Friday. Despite the highest achieved being 7214 points, we're still fairly hopeful some upward travel is possible, if only to celebrate children returning to prison (school)!

Trends and Targets for 6/04/2018

FTSE FOR FRIDAY (FTSE:UKX) We started this week with a commentary which suggested caution if believing the doomsayers who've been suggesting the index is in trouble. Our analysis revealed 7217 points was probably going to prove important. The FTSE still has not bettered this but...

Trends and Targets for 5/04/2018

BARCLAYS (LSE:BARC) The banks are proving somewhat lethargic. We opted to take a glance at the parent index for the sector, the famous NMX8350 Banks Index, as it usually gives some sort of clue as to what's really happening. Current trading at 4190 points, some slight hope seems available.

Trends and Targets for 4/04/2018

BUSHVELD MINERALS (LSE:BMN) It's funny how just the mention of the first two letters of a company share code can provoke a frisson of discomfort. When asked about BMN, we immediately thought "BMR", closely followed by some rather unkind - though deserved - epithets.

FTSE FOR THE FUTURE (FTSE:UKX) This column is being written on the 2nd April and thus, can be regarded as serious. Then again, it is about the FTSE, so perhaps not too serious. Should we opt to go with a couple of our throwaway comments to end last week, it's maybe best to read the following fairly attentively.

FTSE FOR THURSDAY (aka Friday) (FTSE:UKX) The first of this years stock market holidays seems to have taken an age to appear with the market experiencing greater volatility in 3 months than in the whole of 2017. In fact, last time so much action was

Trends and Targets for 28/03/2018

DIGNITY (LSE:DTY) Having been asked about a company named after the famous Deacon Blue song, we took a hard look at their price potentials. In light of their principal activity, perhaps a miracle is due given the time of year. Then again, such miracles would probably prove bad for funeral companies...

DEBENHAMS & FACEBOOK too (LSE:DEB) (NYSE:SPY...) There is actually a pretty good reason we do not have a Facebook page. Aside from it being the cause of family meltdowns worldwide, we just don't like it! And when trying it out, the access demands to an Android phone verged on ridiculous to outright prying.

Trends and Targets for 26/03/2018

THE FTSE FORECAST (FTSE:UKX) With the market edging ever closer to the 6,800 level we've been moaning about for months, what happens if it breaks? Hopefully not a further diet of somnambulistic Formula 1 races or Top Gear rehashing old Top Gear programs.
