Good morning from Paul! 

All done for today, and the week. Have a smashing weekend!

Podcast is up here - mystery shares (my favourite share ideas of the week) are Warpaint London (LON:W7L) and Zotefoams (LON:ZTF)

My SCVR Summary spreadsheet here is now also up-to-date. It's a quick reference tool, where any company we've covered (588 in total) can be found by searching its ticker via CTRL+F. I use this spreadsheet before writing every section in the SCVRs, to get myself up to speed on this year's previous news from the company in less than 60 seconds. Also it provides a nice visual overview of the pattern of company reporting. You can hover over any cell, to see a pop-up summary of that company's news.

Explanatory notes -

A quick reminder that we don’t recommend any stocks. We aim to review trading updates & results of the day and offer our opinions on them as possible candidates for further research if they interest you. Our opinions will sometimes turn out to be right, and sometimes wrong, because it's anybody's guess what direction market sentiment will take & nobody can predict the future with certainty. We are analysing the company fundamentals, not trying to predict market sentiment.

We stick to companies that have issued news on the day, with market caps (usually) between £10m and £1bn. We usually avoid the smallest, and most speculative companies, and also avoid a few specialist sectors (e.g. natural resources, pharma/biotech).

A key assumption is that readers DYOR (do your own research), and make your own investment decisions. Reader comments are welcomed - please be civil, rational, and include the company name/ticker, otherwise people won't necessarily know what company you are referring to.

What does our colour-coding mean? Will it guarantee instant, easy riches? Sadly not! Share prices move up or down for many reasons, and can often detach from the company fundamentals. So we're not making any predictions about what share prices will do.

Green (thumbs up) - means in our opinion, a company is well-financed (so low risk of dilution/insolvency), is trading well, and has a reasonably good outlook, with the shares reasonably priced.

Amber - means we don't have a strong view either way, and can see some positives, and some negatives. Often companies like this…
