  Is Fairpoint a fair investment?Fairpoint plc is currently trading at a P/E of 1 based on Stockopedia broker targets of an adjusted P/E of 14p for the current year. I’ve been a shareholder in this company before so I am interested in seeing whether the market is now overlooking potential value. Dividends are currently suspended here so ignore the Stockopedia estimated dividend of 50%!  Why…

I've been taking a look at Blancco Technology (LON:BLTG) recently as I spotted that it's growing quite fast with some further near-term opportunities for growth. It primarily does data erasure and, to a lesser extent, mobile diagnostics. This is not a sector I know a lot about although most investors will be familiar with the recent 'right to be forgotten' EU/Google case as a high…

Hi, Can anyone recommend a good RNS alerts service? I was using but they seem to have stopped adding new shares and when I emailed them to request adding them my email bounces back! Hopefully this doesn't break any stockopedia editorial rules by discussing other services. I also tried using the londonstockexchange email service but that doesn't seem to work properly. Ideas appreciated!

I think NAHL (LON:NAH) looks interesting, especially after recent falls. I am currently a holder. It is cheap (p/e of 6-7) and currently trading on a 9% dividend. The business is also easy to understand.However, there are a number of risks to the business which is why it will probably only be a small, short-term holding for me. The biggest of these are proposed regulatory…

I thought I'd start a thread for people to share their thoughts on the one or two shares they think look great value at the moment. I'm partly doing this for selfish reasons as I am struggling to find shares I am interested in right now! I've entitled this 'Bargain Basement Shares' because my strategy is tilted towards value, but I'd also be interested to…

Almost half a year after the year end! What a joke! So glad I sold out on the day of the profit warning.

Did everyone see The Times article? The Times is speculating it could be bought out by private equity or "a rival such as Stonegate Pub Company" which seems strangely specific! The CEO also says the share price drop has been an "overreaction".

Thanks for covering Innovaderma (LON:IDP) Graham. I eventually bought a small amount after researching it following your original note - albeit several weeks after it had gone up a lot! It's becoming difficult to guesstimate what sort of MCap is possible because it's made quite a few new product and trading update announcements in the last few months and this feels like a company that's…

To help with research I have done a quick little table of Eve vs competitors in the UK. I would say is a serious competitor as it is well-known (it sells furniture) and markets itself very well. Its products are also good quality. The downside with Made is that it doesn't allow ratings of its products; I personally wouldn't want to buy a mattress…

A more recent example is Gattaca (LON:GATC) which bizarrely has actually gone higher than its SP before the profit warning!
