IMImobile (LON:IMO) popped up on one of my screens recently. It's got reasonable growth (albeit mostly through acquisitions), the PE ratio isn't too crazy, and the chart setup for Minervini lovers looks of interest trading above the 50 and 200 day moving average and arguably in a period of consolidation. I thought I'd generate a discussion thread to hear views as I am considering buying.In…

QUIZ (LON:QUIZ) clothing looks interesting to me. I was first attracted to it as a share because it has strong Boohoo.Com (LON:BOO) style advertising everywhere on the London Underground and I noticed more women in my office were browsing the site at work. This is a retailer towards the budget end of the highstreet with around 70 physical stores, primarily in the UK, around 170…

The new Google Finance update has lost the portfolio and live prices (for UK stocks anyway) feature. In fact it's a terrible update - I don't see why I'd use the website anymore. Can anyone recommend a website that has live prices for free? I use the mobile app Webull but its portfolio feature is a bit basic and I try and avoid using my…

I’ve recently been going over Innovaderma (LON:IDP) a share I’ve held on and off this year, so thought I’d share my research with Stockopedia users. I currently hold it and topped up recently after it fell nearly 50% from its high earlier in the year. Graham Neary has also written about it a few times and it was Graham that originally flagged it to me.…

Do Stockopedia readers have a personal view on the outlook for the UK economy at the moment? I appreciate it's all educated guesswork but it's obviously important for considering what to do with one's portfolio. For me there are some contradictory signals. E.g. Safestyle UK (LON:SFE) recent update made me nervous that we're on the verge of a recession if a big ticket item like…

It does seem like an overreaction given the PBT is still in line - as Tricorn (LON:TCN) said in October although they did not warn about flat revenue for H1 so we'd already been guided that revenue growth was flat. The attraction with this share remains dramatically improved profits and eventually falling debt I hope. I was happy to hold still this morning although the…

I share your views on MySale (LON:MYSL) Paul. It is looking good value - it achieved underlying EPS of 2.3p in 2018 and should be higher than this in 2019 given modest revenue growth and cost efficiencies. This is cheap for this sort of company. However, I also wonder if the falling share price is related to governance issues. In October the CFO resigned without…

More thoughts on me from QUIZ (LON:QUIZ) in addition to what Graham has pointed out (I hold and have looked at it in reasonable detail). Firstly, worth reminding ourselves this share is currently trading at c.7x 2019 (conservative looking) earnings and cash at half-year end now represents around 22% of the market cap. So the share must be doing really badly or is very risky…

I would also just like to flag up Palace Capital (LON:PCA) half-year results today. I hold this and topped up again this morning as I think it looks good value for a number of reasons: - NAV per share is now up to 421p a share even though the share price is currently sat at around 300p. A near 30% discount to the NAV per…

Thanks for another good report Graham. I always enjoy your understated humour - "It's worrying that a fire alarm company can be so accident-prone!" On another note, at 9am this morning Patisserie Holdings (LON:CAKE) "Subsequent edit: I also just stumbled across this interesting article about On The Beach (LON:OTB) ambitions for growing its staff which is a good sign of the current confidence of the…
