Supergroup’s Lastest Interims

Prices in Supergroup - the High Street fashion retailer - are testing 24 month highs on the back of their interim results released on the 12th December. For those of you new to the world of Supergroup, they're the company behind the Superdry and CULT brands. Here'a a little blurb from the Superdry website: Inspired by a trip to Tokyo in 2003, Superdry fuses design influences from Japanese graphics and vintage Americana, with the values of British tailoring. The result – unique urban clothing, with incredible branding and an unrivalled level of detailing. Such distinctiveness has gained the brand exclusive appeal, as well...

Supergroup – New Highs Following Optimistic Interims

After you've bought a new car it's amazing how often you'll spot the exact same make and model on the streets. Obviously, roughly the same numbers were sharing the tarmac the day before, but that realisation often doesn't come until you're an owner of that same model yourself. Lately I'm finding the same case can be made for clothing. Since first investing in Supergroup back in 2012 I'm noticing a lot more of their leading brand, Superdry, being sported by the young and fashionable - in my little nook of Europe at least. Not content with just being a shareholder, I decided...

Gold, Supergroup, Lavendon, Archipelago and Avocet

It seems like an age since I've put index fingers to keyboard and tapped out a bit of an update. It's not as though I haven't had a dabble on the markets here and there, it's just that I've been a little preoccupied with some of our other web ventures. But more on that in a later post. We dipped back into gold long at $5 per point at $1609 an ounce back in mid February. Since then - with a tug-of-war as China, Russia, et al. stockpile the stuff and fund managers offload it - it's traded in a range...

Supergroup Hits 12 Month Highs

A retailer sells more product over Christmas, it releases a statment to that effect, the price of its stock goes up. It's investing Utopia. But how often does it happen just like that in reality? Read on my sceptical friends...

SuperGroup – That’s the Clothing Retailer

Use the word Supergroup around someone of my age and it'll no doubt conjure up images of men in sequined spandex with substantial bouffants strutting around stage, backed by a tottering stack of Marshalls the height of a housing estate. Even the Google alert I've set up to track any newsworthy online utterings of the term 'Supergroup' tends to return more headlines on wannabe rockers than a certain UK clothing retailer. But I digress. Usually I digress. The Supergroup to which this article refers is in fact Supergroup PLC. A nifty little FTSE 350 company that sells clothing under a number of brands...

Bought: Getech Group, Sepura, Incadea, Avocet Mining, Supergroup, Dragon Oil and Gemfields

So enough of all of this stock screening malarkey, it's time to move on to some real market action. I've given the Investor Trader portfolio a damn good shake over the past few weeks and I've got lots of buys and spreads to report. I'll jump into the specifics of each company in the coming days but as a bit of a taster we've taken up shares in a bunch of companies, namely: Getech Group, Sepura and Incadea. We've also taken out a bunch of spread-bets, going long on: Avocet Mining, Supergroup, Dragon Oil and Gemfields. So drop by in the coming days...
