I don't really follow currencies closely but this one has peaked my interest. It's now at its lowest level (in terms of dollar value) since WWII (78.2 and moving all over the place having been as low as 76.4 as stops no doubt got hit) as I type. The considered view is that the BoJ are likely to start buying around 80 USD/YEN to protect…

Barratt Developments (LON:BDEV) looks to be another good asset play. The current market seems to be throwing lots of them up.Recent Half yearly report available here: · Revenues for the half year were in line with the prior year equivalent period at £877.6m (2009: £872.4m) · Completions for the period were 4,832 (2009: 5,053), including 36 (2009: 25) joint venture completions · Average selling price…

Sure, it's not black and white (nothing ever is) but it's about doing the least harm to their own reputation and I very much doubt many will be disappointed if they resign. The longer this carries on the worse it will get for Cenkos.

Couldn't disagree more Peter. Actually their leaving would suspend the shares and stop the farce that is currently taking place.

This is indeed uninvestable - their continuing relationship with Quindell is beyond belief. You literally could not make this up.

A non-binding agreement to repurchase the shares in two or three years' time, does not negate the reality that the shares have been transferred to another party, in return for money - which to any rational person would be called a saleFrom an accounting perspective the question is have the risks and rewards of ownership transferred?It's not completely clear to me in that the borrower…

Makes no sense to me to have arbitrary places where you average up (or down) for that matter. In a investment pot when money comes to hand the question should be what is the best return I can obtain from this cash. I don't see the relevance of whether that stock has gone up, down or even sideways.
