Agreed cash bid by Silver Lake Management for ZPG (LON:ZPG) (the property agent formerly known as Zoopla) @ 490p per share announced this morning. 31% acceptances (including largest DMGT holding of 29%) already committed, so well advanced but not yet in the bag. C.30% premium on share price already up 10% or so in the last couple of weeks. Interesting punt given the cloud…

Appreciate O&G is generally off limits, but a footnote for the Falcon Oil & Gas (LON:FOG) record that the Northern Territory authorities have lifted an historic moratorium on O&G fracking/development in the state that will allow Falcon Oil & Gas (LON:FOG) and their partners to develop the substantial Beetaloo gas field in the state that was identified a few years ago. Shares have been in…

.... is having another Monday morning off. Anyone else seeing any more than about a dozen (pretty inconsequential) announcements on any of their usual news feeds? Gus.

All cash bid at 610p per share announced after hours on Monday evening for Fenner (LON:FENR). Missed it first time around wading through all of the portfolio red ink! Not yet fully in the price but has been on a decent run of late. Gus.

Not necessarily plugging this as an investment, but fascinating to follow the development of this polyhalite mine up in the North Yorkshire moors by Sirius Minerals (LON:SXX) . Very much a “ jam tomorrow” story stock (already a decade in the making and no production expected until 2021) but the logistics behind the development read like something from a long gone period of British industrial…

Not a small cap, but Next (LON:NXT) full year results always worth a read for an insight to state of U.K. retail. Might take a while to read through though .... Gus.

Year end results/confirmation of the 24p pay out plus a possible rump of indeterminate size and timing from sale of any residual assets. 24p to be paid out following approval at a GM in May by end of Q2. Gus.

Hi Lordyjordy. As with most things to do with investing, you need to figure out a few criteria before deciding where to park your cash e.g. what’s your time horizon, risk appetite, target return etc.. Asssuming you’re in cash for a longer term (i.e. not just parking it for a few weeks pending investing in shares), relatively risk averse (looking for capital preservation above all…

Hi InvestorJohn. John Eustace has answered your question in his post, i.e. use the drop down menu in the alert function. My screener was just to give you an idea of a few “near, but just below” the %200d MA stocks to put into the alert function to make sure (a) that it works, and (b) that it does so in a timely enough fashion…

Hi Investorjohn. Assuming the stock you’re interested in is currently below it’s 200 day moving average, (I think) that if you set an alert for “%200d MA” at > 0 , this should alert you when a stock crosses above its 200 day moving average. Not one I’ve tried to use previously but according to the definitions it should work. Suggest you give it a…
