Hope you all had a great weekend!

Decided to change the title - Did want to use this title originally but thought it wouldn't be understood or go down well, didn't even know if I would continue with the report - But, there was some discussion on the title the other day so now it will be "I Read The News Today Oh Boy!" ripped off from the Beatles A Day In The Life - Thanks guys!

Anyway, had a nightmare here this morning, Investegate (my main go to news feed) was not working for me (still isn’t) – The main London Stock Exchange site is working but I cannot find news for some of the companies I was expecting to find news for – (Also checked lse.co.uk to no avail).

The rise last week means the current Mkt Cap is £21.6m.  Another kind of Stock Report I don’t particularly like – No consistency in Profits, poor ROCE, no Dividend and debt about 50% of Mkt Cap. Surely, I can find better shares than this to invest in! Stockopedia classes this a Speculative Contrarian play, that looks appropriate. I was going to comment here, on the assumption good news was announced today – Is there some insider dealing going…
