All share recommended offer (looks like a consolidation/merger of comparative equals) just announced at c.28% premium by John Wood (LON:WG.) for Amec Foster Wheeler (LON:AMFW) . First of several in the sector perhaps? Gus.

Link below to MGW's 2017 bucket list picks for the Oil and Gas sector together with a review of the selections made in 2016. Stockopedia metrics don't really work so well with these kind of mainly exploration and development energy stocks - just take a look at the stock ranks of the top 5 in the list - but together with the mining/other natural…

All cash 50% premium offer announced this morning for Fyffes (LON:FFY) by Sumitomo Group. RNS details below. 37% premium to previous all time high so looks a reasonably full price. Best, Gus.

One of my stocks, Sound Energy (LON:SOU) , has today announced an underwritten placement of about 5% of its current share capital. As part of the book building process, they have included an offer to PIs with a minimum £1,000 subscription, to participate via the portal on similar terms as institutional investors. Presumably this is a cheaper and quicker means to tap the market…

Idle musings for a foggy Sunday morning (well it's foggy here in deepest Surrey anyway) in the run up to Hallow'een.We're probably all familiar with the notion in Chaos Theory that potentially the biggest events can be set off by the most trivial of root causes (the classic example being a distant butterfly wing beat setting off a hurricane or something like that).

Hi Ken. In the middle of the Australian outback at the moment so not paying too much attention to be honest. Thursday's RNS suggests PV Crystalox Solar (LON:PVCS) have streamlined their limited ongoing options and the level of the cash balance in the company (higher than expected I think) but the big potential payday remains the ongoing litigation case. No news on that so far…

Reasonably good year end trading update from Dunelm (LON:DNLM) posted this morning. Shares have been on a bit of a downward trend so far this year. Margins still under pressure but LFL sales up coupled with decent online growth coming from Worldstores acquisition being bedded in. They claim to be taking market share from the competition. Given their sector (mid to large ticket home…

Yes. Recommended cash bid at 700p (20% premium) announced this morning, albeit well down on the share price at the time of the original article. Gus.

Hi Paul. No particular knowledge on Tanzania, but I fear for the worst and will sit on the sidelines until the position is clearer. Currently hold a couple of resource stocks with country risk exposure to Zimbabwe (long term basket case) and South Africa (showing potential to be the next Zimbabwe) given the "politics of envy" that seems to be coming to the fore under…

Good luck to the NEDs trying to find the cash. I suspect it has long since been siphoned off to some obscure and untraceable bank account somewhere offshore in the Pacific. On your comment about naming and shaming the brokers etc., the company's website has a helpful (if two years out of date) list of the great and the good providing "professional" services. Gus.
