H & T (LON:HAT) Ramsdens Holdings (LON:RFX) Some interesting reading recently on HAT and RFX with various announcements. Should I buy either/or ? To compare: Well done H&T for buying the Money stores, paying 10.6m for 9.9m revenues. Additional 4m in working capital to make them operational. The stores are in a bit of a state from what I’ve seen but H&T should know what…

Cineworld (LON:CINE) Price has dropped yesterday, trading around 258p. CINE released a RNS saying their Auditors KPMG have pulled out of the tender process and a letter from KPMG is listed on CINE website citing commercial reasons for withdrawing “…we declined to participate as we did not consider that it was likely that we would be able to agree acceptable commercial terms.”. While this is…

Private equity is awash with cash. My limited interactions with them, they were looking for cash generative funnels they could ideally leverage with debt and achieve 8% ROA (where the 'A' is really their equity if not debt funded) so a fairly low investment bar. The analysis of cash flow projections were obsessive, beyond imagination, when I saw their work.

Strix (LON:KETL) Nice earner Strix. But I wondered about their heating control patent and found this Patent Office reference, which shows their heating control patent expires Feb 2022'm not an expert at all, but for this reason dropped Strix off my list, as they could lose their moat in two years.

Great article, thank you for putting the time in to write this A qualitative observation from myself. Fever tree tonic in the UK has achieved cult like status, with bar managers and their customers. However, I travel internationally and I'm a gin drinker. I always ask the bar tender what tonic he's going to use when I order a G&T - if it's a cheapie…

I'm not holding much cash, don't think we're at peak yet, I'm relying on the leader of the free world wanting to win an election at all costs, to cover off recession risk to stocks markets. Last few days have seen a 'hard brexit off' rally. Bought some cheap UK centric shares recently now on a rip: Countryside Properties (LON:CSP) British Land (LON:BLND) Newriver Reit…
