It'll certainly be a horror show once these rates rise. I just don't know how these people, supposedly in charge, think they're helping the ordinary man. In fact, scrap that. They have no intention of helping the ordinary man. They just help themselves. Did you see that idiot of a conservative MP who was caught on camera effectively taking bribes? All the trouble there has been in the last couple of years with people getting caught doing the exact same thing and they still do it. There's just no shame and no bounds where these people with money are concerned and it'll all be forgotten in a few weeks time for others to do the same thing. And there you have an explosion in food banks where the ordinary worker is being paid so little that they have to turn to charity to feed their family. It's a good job I don't live in America because come the revolution I'd be the first one out the door, gun in hand. lolol
Madrid really turned over Chelsea. They had a big incentive though. An all Madrid final. Would be like Man C playing Man U. Athletico are the top team in Spain, surprisingly enough. Even better than Barcelona this season. Should be a cracking final.
In theory Shaun, we should already have it! Someone has the brakes on with this. The annual AGM is very close now, perhaps there will be some news there, about it. Either way Lloyds can't hold out much longer and keep face.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
Looks like a good start to 2014 - nothing crazy, but met their #s. The only thing that seems to be moving stock prices these days is upward change in future expectations. Didn't read the entire transcript, but sounds like they're on point, but no upward adjustment.
didn't see that, but not concerned. So much so, that have topped up on NG for more scrip divi action after results today, & VOD to pre-empt results next Thursday. Forget weirdo-hunter, I am the divi-hunter.
Re GOlf Paris, like Slimy Javille, & Squirrel Smyth, they must think that it won't come to light in their lifetimes, & nobody used to speak ill of the dead. Their cult of personality and endearing TV persona's were their defence,
Our CEO is leaving - a bit of a bolt from te blue, but he has chosen his successor, hope it isn't like Ferguson Moyes lol. Difference is,he has only been with us for 3 years, but that is the maximum time he spends somewhere before moving on to the next challenge. He certainly turned our place around.
Got my God-daughters 18th birthday family bash to look forward to tomorrow night - where have those years gone lol. Should be good fun, drinks & food, gazebo in the garden, supposed to be 20". Also helps for the long hour walk from dropping in the car for its service. New exhaust going on, as it has snapped like a carrot & sounds like Lewis Hamilton is parking up on our driveway - will miss the meaty sound though.
Did you see the Damned United about CLough & his 44 days at Leeds last night? Although short, it is a great film, & was like Cloughie was there - the actor captured his mannerisms, accent, intonation on the words, & general arrogance. You would have loved the trip down memory lane seeing Dave Mackay, Bremner, Giles & what sh1tes they were to him (but he did bring a lot of it on himself!). Saw a player I had long forgotten about in Duncan McKenzie - was he any good overall?
Keep falling, keep announcing bad news after bad news and still have a lot of lawsuits in the tank. This bank is going no where for the next 5 years. Jenkins knows it and he is main concern is to avoid a total price collapse. Shareholders should push to sell the bank piece by piece, the only way to get our money back (just may be).
okay, back again - hated this Portsmouth trip. Funeral only had 24 people there, but that is because they didn't announce it so that hated sister (my Auntie) wouldn't show her face. Long story short - divorced bankrupt money-grabbing #$%$ with a friendly engaging personality. She was the apple of grandparents eye, but ripped them off out of pension money etc. Still, saw last remaining brother uncle Ken for first time in 30 years - clocked his features a mile off - looked so much like my dad it was untrue.
Not much else to say at present, apart from bemoaning the 10 hours boat trip it takes to go direct to Pompey - ahh, sorry guys, not in a good frame of mind - never seen a burial before, & found it awful, especially leaving him there alone....
Lloyds Banking Group PLC’s “Sell” Rating Reaffirmed at Espirito Santo Investment Bank Research.
A catholic institution rating a bank....
Maybe there is a devil involved with this stock....
Well, good job your dog has had his gnashers done before the World Cup starts, as he can now growl along with you to bad refereeing decisions & Englands hard luck story, though Stephen Hawkins has solved the penalty problems through a mathematical equation. Shame he doesn't do markets - but why do you think there has to be a correlation between markets & reality? It is an imperfect mechanism, & the only time real value is realised is when a takeover bid comes along for a company. Imagine how high the FTSE would reach, if every one of the component companies were being bid for - the sky would be the limit lolol. This is how we make our money.
Risky thinks Golf is going to HM pleasure as well - he has more dark side than Darth Vador!
Went to a stage show tonight for the Wizard Of Oz - very amateur but hugely enjoyable! Have been inspired to walk past the theatre again in the future.
C'mon Belgium! Holland have now lost their 2 best creative players - Strootman was already out, & now Van Der Vaart has done his hamstring - I hate it went the best players can't be on the biggest stage due to injury, it robs us of the sheen
Downloaded Gettysburg that was only available in USA on bluray - a 4 hour epic that will suit the Saturday hangover.
Ego doing great today, beautiful lady at our office said "Hello Gorgeous" to me in my safe today, it is a very long time since that happened - I say a long time, I mean never! Been smiling inside all evening, but not daring to tell Mrs GRim why.....he he he...
Damn - missed the Uruguay game - thought that was on later. Did Suarez miss out? Might explain the loss. What happened to them in '66? Thought it was Argentina & Ratin that were the animals? - south Americans must have been well disliked lol.
Buffon, captain of Italy & goalkeeper for 10 years is definitely out - there is a psychological boost already. Stop Pirlo Moon, kick him where it hurts, see how fast he can hop, c'mon England!!! Time to blast out 3 Lions, World In Motion, & Noble England.....get your Lions out Moon!

Wow, what a crazy ride it’s been for KDR’s shareholders… They’ve certainly bounced back nicely from the share price collapse I (correctly) predicted two years ago. In fact, in the past year, KDR managed an astonishing near-1,000% rally at one point! The graph is just as astonishing:
KDR 1 Yr Chart
Yup, I didn’t see that coming..! Incidentally, it’s worth taking a closer look at the actual chart, and KDR’s news & placing history – the serendipitous timing of some of the splendiferous diamondiferous news flow, price rallies & share placings is even more astonishing! ;-) Well, perhaps it’s bested by certain holders of this stock: They’re masters of timing, of course – always catching the tops & bottoms just right – so I suppose we should presume they’ve banked astonishing profits..?! But the chart above is also a reminder KDR’s rapidly returning to earth again. And the long-term chart’s a prescient reminder of what it’s really like for shareholders:
KDR LT Chart
All in all, the recent price surge was really just a pleasant diversion – KDR still has nothing tangible to show for itself (in the way of booked reserves, or resources). However, it’s managed an astonishing 4 placings in the past 6 months, more than tripling its outstanding share count – a grim reminder any possible shareholder value here (however remote) will surely be diluted away. Totting up cash, debt, net payables, annual cash burn & cash raised since (plus debt/payables written off) will nail down a valuation for us:
(EUR 0.0 M Cash – 1.2 M Debt – 1.5 M Net Payables – 0.3 M Annual Cash Burn + (GBP 2.7 M Placing Cash * 93% + 0.9 M Debt/Payables Write-Off) / 0.8135 EUR/GBP) * 0.8135 EUR/GBP / 287 M Shares = GBP 0.3p
KDR remains horribly over-valued – I think we can safely assume shareholders will end up disappointed here all over again.
Price Target: GBP 0.3p
Makes little sense. Maybe the commission increases a bit, so some traders will trade less. However, there should be more retail buyers of AAPL now that price per share has dropped. There should be a better explanation for the drop in volume.
Come on, ANSWER the Question, don't avoid it.
It's a simple Question, just come clean and answer it!
WHY would you CARE to post here at all, much less all day every day, on the Board of a stock you neither own nor like?
that's what we're wanting - hatred lol. Germany Holland, Argentina Brazil - either will be a war. Not a classic tonight - could go to penalties this one - another late night beckons...
I've liked Robben. He's so fast. I think Holland will score a couple before the end of extra time. Anyway, I'm going to watch the rest of the game in bed. The dogs are tutting because it's well past their bedtime.
