Here is a comparison of all current major US and UK stock indices, tracked against the 50, 100 and 200 EMA s. The time period is the past two years.So as the headline says, are we living in dangerous times? 

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. Anything above 50% is a amber to red flag.…

Hi Graham re. Rightmove (LON:RMV) the one thing that has always struck me in awe is this company's operating margin (and I mean operating margin and not gross margin). Today's results show 75% and I believe this ratio has been above 70% over the past few years. This underlines the monopolistic power that you mentioned. They are just dominating this sector. Unfortunately I have never…

Hi WDWombat Re. Treatt (LON:TET) Many thanks for the podcast link. I have just sat through the interview with Lord Lee and D Reeve the CEO. Very impressed. Now to answer my own question put in post no. 8 above, and based on what I picked up from this podcast - there is a major global demand for sugar substitute flavours and fragrances. Quite clearly…

Re. Treatt (LON:TET) I am a happy holder of this stock and was pleasantly surprised by today's excellent trading update. Without wishing to look a gift horse in the mouth, I am puzzled to understand what brought about such a major step-up in revenues and margins. It is an important question because the answer will reflect on the quality of earnings. If the huge growth…

FREng - Re. Blue Prism (LON:PRSM) Just a note of caution. The RNS says revenues will materially exceed. Doesn't say anything about impact on the bottom line. If you look at the historical data losses have been widening and current broker forecasts are higher losses. Whether this RNS results in the co. moving into profit is a moot point. Personally I'd like to see a…

Re. Trakm8 Holdings (LON:TRAK) I am sad but not surprised by the turn of events with this company. I held a decent sized stake until the 7/9/16 update and then sold out for a modest gain. The following red signals were there in that update: - 1H results lower than the comparable previous year's - claim by management that 2H weighting will make things right…
