Range Resources

A positive bit of news from their operations in Trinidad followed by an update on their interests in Guatemala (via a recent investment in Citation Resources Limited) has seen Range Resources put on 30% in 8 days - from 3.00 pence at open on 5th February to 3.90 pence, as I type. On the Trinidad find, Executive Director Peter Landau had this to say: We are extremely pleased with the results of the ongoing drilling program in Trinidad, and particularly with the discovery of new oil reservoir. The QUN 135 well confirms once again that the development potential on Range's Trinidad blocks...

Range Resources and Newton’s Third Law Redux

For those of you who drop by from time to time, you may remember a little piece I penned late last month titled, Range Resources and Newton's Third Law. To cut out the babble (and there was a fair bit of babble), the post travelled along the lines that, if: prices (of late) were tending to drop on good news, then surely there was a case to be argued that a little bad news could see a...

Range Resources and Newton’s Third Law

I've spoken at length in the recent past about the futility of releasing perfectly good statutory news in these most trying of financial times. I know, I know, timely release of such news is mandatory, but wouldn't it be nice to stockpile all of those nuggets of wonderful data - the opportunistic deals, the reassuring JORCs, the tantalising executive re-shuffles - and drip feed them to the investing community piecemeal in more economically fragrant times. Time and time again in recent months I've woken to news releases ranging the gamut of pleasant to overwhelmingly positive just to witness the price close...

When Not to Sell

Despite investing at the more volatile end of the market I like to think I remove many of the elements of chance by doing my homework and remaining informed about any holdings in my portfolio. Information is a little like insurance, not home insurance or buildings insurance, rather portfolio insurance. When the markets are in turmoil it's even more important to stay informed. However it's easy to get sucked in by plunging prices. Potential entry points appear when prices are in flux and sometimes we go chasing the quick quid rather than staying to true to our long term investment goals. On...

The Power of the Road Trip

Never underestimate the power of the road trip. No, I'm not talking about gathering up a bunch of buddies and box full of beers and hitting the tarmac (which admittedly can be a heck of a lot of fun), I'm talking about one of my favourite little short term price pushers, the company presentation. It can be a one off show at a trade fair or if you're lucky, management can take the whole kit 'n' caboodle on the road in an attempt to sell their vision to the big boys with the dough (institutional investors) and stir up a little...

Purchase: Range Resources

We've been eying them off for long enough. We listed them in December 2010 as one of 17 potential speculative investments to watch in the year ahead...

17 Potential (Speculative) Investments for 2011

Following on from my most recent post - Which Shares Should I Invest In - I've spent a few days pouring over my own pool of potential investments. No small job in the end as the list had ballooned to over 50 possibles, thanks in no small part to suggestions from our readers. I've had a cursory glance over the lot of 'em and have very crudely trimmed that list back to 17 based on a bunch of criteria that underlines my investment philosophy (I'd love to look more deeply in to each and every one of them but there's...
