Trends and Targets for 30/11/2017

LAIRD (LSE:LRD) In the great scheme of things, few things define utter boredom more than Lairds share price during the last six months. But oddly we'd a flurry of requests for an update, so perhaps something interesting is possible.

Trends and Targets for 29/11/2017

THE UK POUND vs THE EURO Inspired by Mrs T&T returning from the supermarket with an expensive bag of gold foil covered chocolate coins for the Xmas tree, a look at how Sterling is performing makes a lot of sense. In recent months, many feints on this pairing serve to confuse but

CENTRICA (LSE:CNA) We managed to get past the USA Turkey Festival without mentioning Gulf Keystone once! Something of an achievement as the open goal in recent years made GKP an obvious victim. Alas, this year we would have been reduced to talking about stuffing...

FTSE this Week (FTSE:UKX) We've had pretty good reason to expect some good "stuff" from the markets, absolutely none of which has made itself known on the FTSE. The US, Germany, even France, responded to the upward forces, the FTSE opted pretend it was a frightened ostrich.

FTSE FOR FRIDAY (FTSE:UKX) The USA's turkey festival surprised us by coming a week early! Apparently the last Thursday of November is not a fixed rule for gobbler massacres. Our complaint, the markets in Europe opted to enjoy a duvet day, rather than experience the buoyant day we expected.

Thomas Cook Group (LSE:TCG) Many men go through life, wondering what they will next do to irritate their wife. A good idea led to a surprise 8/10 level of nuisance. When asked to quickly blend her soup, apparently using a high torque hand-drill is not allowed despite the tool fitting perfectly.

FEVERTREE DRINKS (LSE:FEVR) With a corporate name like this, we wonder why this mob don't sponsor "I'm a Nonentity" which is currently polluting UK TV screens! It certainly would tend add something to the vacant lot of people confusing fleeting TV appearance with fame.

YOUGOV (LSE:YOU) Our little diatribe regarding 2017 being "The Year The FTSE Did Nothing" struck a chord with a few folks. Last year it witnessed 1,700 range, in 2015 there were 1,400 points, in 2014 a sad 900 points were on display, virtually the same as 2013. So this years 500 point range stinks.

FTSE this week (FTSE:UKX) The market is really starting to bother us. On Friday, for instance, we'd mentioned our concern of any rise above 7389 fading out half way to target. At precisely two minutes past noon, this actually happened with a 5 point drop. It suggested our optimism was based on a fake!

Trends and Targets for 17/11/2017

FTSE FOR FRIDAY (FTSE:UKX) There are times when we wish it was permissible to shrug our shoulders and admit we just don't know what's happening.
