On February 3rd, Johnston Press Johnston Press (LON:JPR) put out an RNS stating that following an independent review their pension deficit has been reduced from £90m on 3/1/15 to £53m on 3/1/16. Following the announcement, the share price jumped 12%.This is a massive deficit reduction of 41% at one stroke which is unusual but not entirely unheard of. The company also stated that full details…

Below is the text of an email I sent earlier today to Dmitrios Gryparis, Globo's Finance Director. The main issues have been unashamedly drawn from Paul Scott's blog of today (all E&OE are of course mine).  Any replies I receive will be published here."Dear Mr GryparisI am a Globo Plc investor who has been following your company’s fortunes fairly closely over the last 18 months.…

Today's Sunday Times carries an interesting article on the extent of pension fund liabilities in listed companies balance sheets and impact on prices. Nothing new in this for those who study financial results. What struck me as interesting is that the report saw a ratio of pension liabilities to net assets of 50% as a marker.

Hi Minnow - You have had pretty good advice from PhilH. For what it's worth here is what I do. I have switched to being a momentum investor since last year and follow fairly closely Minervini's methods. He is a momentum investor who only invests in stocks which also show strong fundamentals. If you combine the two, then you are likely to get the superstocks…

Hi extrader - I think the answers to your question are in the quoted text of my earlier post. For the actual price applying to new shares you need to look into the details given in the documents. The only share conversion that is good for a current shareholder is one that is converted on market prices. Anything else is probably bad news to a…
