Investment Strategy

Doing the reseach to find undervalued well estalished companies, hopefully still paying a dividend, and sticking with them until the share price recovers. Realise the mistakes/loss makers early and not be too greedy before selling the winners.

Run with a range of 20+ equity investments with individual holdings of anything between a few hundred pounds to a maximum of £5,000.

My thoughts here - http://www.stockopedia.com/article/view/32977/kopane-a-rough-diamond Yet again, this one feels too racy for my liking. There's massive potential from the Main Pipe project The Company announced on 10th September 2009 a new resource statement in respect of the Main Pipe showing a total resource of 90.09 million tonnes, which is an increase of 19.1% over the Interim Resource Statement of 2008. The statement showed a…

Are you looking for massive potential upside but, to get to it, you're willing to retain confidence in distant operations that take much longer and absorb much more cash than initially expected? Are you willing to live with the price of your shares fluctuating, over a twelve month period, from 1.38p to 18p? If so, then diamond group, Kopane Diamond Developments, currently mining in Lesotho,…

This AIM listed engineering group of companies is based in Washington,  Country of Durham. With the shares standing at 34p each (29.10.09) and close on 72m issued ordinary shares, it has a market capitalisation of £25.2m. These bald facts only begin to tell a story which has become something of a business school case study. A little over two years ago (23 July 2007), TAN’s…

The Company has a 100% interest in Temir-Service LLP ("Temir Service"), which holds the Subsoil Use Contract for the Chilisai phosphorite deposit in NW Kazakhstan.

Guru and pubster: Many thanks for your interest. The third para of the article refers to 'a potential agreement with an unnamed mining group'. However I do not share the optimism that any agreement will be on terms all that favourable to the KDD share price. Regards

Betasurfer: Agree with your comments, the biggest news here is FORD and given the suggested volumes involved that's bad. Listed last behind a fair bit of flim flam - US Mail excepted though that's at prototype stage. Spin - they could be more straightforward and why did the FORD project wither ? I repeat not for me.

Cyberbub and Betasurfer: Thanks for your interest. The £100m is the immediate (medium term) amount of new capital required ($150m reported at the July 2009 AGM  duly converted) you are correct that much more will eventually be needed. Mention was made of the very direct railway system in Kazahstan and I had intended to mention the proposed link between the factory and the railway system…

For any holders of SKR out there, I have written up my views to date after researching Sunkar  - http://www.stockopedia.com/article/view/32753/sunkar-resources-any-capital-growth-from-this-fertilizer As you can probably tell from the article, I am doubtful on it amounting to much. Not one for the widows and orphans portfolio, in fact one for the dreamers if you ask me. But feel free to tell me why if you think I…
