Estimated hidden value #finance #investments

The surprise news of the week came from Solo Oil which announced it was investing in helium exploration by buying a 10% interest in Helium One Limited with an option to buy a further 10%. This news trashed the share price even further and wasn’t greeted with enthusiasm by the market. This acquisition could add to Solo Oil’s hidden value. The hidden value is in the gas field that Ntorya2 was supposed to validate. Now we have bought into more potential value but that is all Solo Oil is, potential without the realisation of value. The gas sales from the Ruvuma well was realisation of value and fuelled optimism about Ntorya2 leading to a soaring share price which then crashed when shareholders were disappointed with results.

Long-term diversification #investments

Some investments take a long time to come good and are much riskier than the FTSE 100 companies. We can limit risk by diversifying and limiting our exposure quantitatively. These investments often lose money, at least on paper in the short-term, but can give a good return in the long-term.

Global risks #investments

When you’re investing in the stock market there are always political and global risks. Will the UK leave the European Union? It could affect trade and so it is a risk. The refugee crisis and the military action in Syria is a risk. As one risk disappears the politicians create another risk, this leads to a volatile market. You can lose money in a volatile market and you can make money. (more…)


Financial uncertainty #finance

Financial uncertainty seems to be caused  by political considerations and lack of regulation. The problems in Ukraine seem to have taken a backseat now to the problems in Syria. The drop in economic growth in China seems to be less of a worry too. Those problems are still there, but we have more important things to worry about now! Get used to more uncertainty! (more…)


Safe harbours? #investments

safe?

Last weeks election is all over now and we have to consider the political consequences. We also have to watch out for bubbles in the market. Interest rates are still ridiculously low and so many investors are happy to get a low return even from the stock market. Some safe shares are priced too high as a result. (more…)


Taking AIM #investments

Investing in the AIM market

I bought shares in another AIM company this week. As usual I invested half of my usual minimum amount and got a discounted dealing commission. It’s even more important on the AIM to limit your risk by investing less and diversely. (more…)


Finance Friday: Investing for the future

Last week, I wrote about supply and demand within markets. Supply and demand effects all free markets. The housing market in the UK, particularly in the south is seeing rising prices, because demand is high and supply is low. (more…)
