Highlights from my portfolio:

That was a week and a half but of late I have had several good first weeks to a month, only to see things fall away.

Amphion Innovations (LON:AMP) has been added to the portfolio on the back of the news that Kromak has received official EU certification to provide colour x-ray liquid detection systems to all European airports.

From Dow Jones Newswires:

LONDON (Dow Jones)--Amphion Innovations PLC (AMP.LN), the developer of medical and technology businesses, said Monday its Partner Company, Kromek, has received official European Union, or EU, certification to provide color x-ray liquid detection systems to all European airports.


-By April 2011, liquid items bought in transit will be allowed on board, providing the appropriate security measures, such as screening, are in place at the airports concerned.

-The results of the European Civil Aviation Conference, or ECAC, led trials establish that the technology is ready to allow the 2011 deadline to be met by the airports; By April 2013, the ban will be lifted completely, allowing the carriage of liquids on flights across Europe.

-Kromek's Bottle Scanner has qualified as a Category B device that has achieved Type 1 and Type 2 100% capability and has been officially tested, verified and authorized by ECAC.

-As of now, all EU airports are free to buy and implement Kromek's Bottle Scanner product, opening the company to the multi million dollar airport security market.

-Kromek specializes in the development of disruptive technology solutions for a range of commercial markets including airport and border security.

The market hasn't noticed yet....so I'm hoping I'm ahead of the curve. The fly in the ointment is that AMP itself looks close to being out of cash. High risk then and I only bought a few.

Avanti Communications Group Plc (LON:AVN) holds steady and my short is yet to get into profit (thank goodness). Nothing to but wait for 25/11

£GCL was one of the stars of the day. Uranium seems to be in the news and this investment trust is trading at a discount.…
