Up 5.5% today (thanks to EUA and no thanks to EQT!), still down 5% from 3 weeks ago.

Aiming to buy a bit more TED (thanks IF) tomorrow. Had this a year ago but sold for a small profit.... should have followed my conviction and kept it for the long term as missed out on a big rise. Oh well, nice to be back in. GLA!

Sold OEX @ .34 for a nice profit

Last 2 days ARB purchases nicely +

ODX now down approx -30%

Oh and sold RMM the other day @ .40. It’s now .54. I got RMM from the Sunday Roast with Zak and took 30% profit out of it but had a feeling I’d regret selling.

£170b of disposable income saved up, been an easy trade really lots of domestic companies looking attractive, value wins at the moment for me and will do so into summer, not need to chase rainbows in EUA.

"Liberum's top trades
The pick of the value trades are Ted Baker and Superdry after Liberum said the pair's current valuations offered little credit for their ongoing strategic and operational overhauls.

Superdry shares dived as low as 70p in the early days of the pandemic but are now at 265p as investors increasingly eye the turnaround potential of founder and chief executive Julian Dunkerton's “influencer-led, digital marketing strategy”.

A similar story is playing out at Ted Baker, where chief executive Rachel Osborne is continuing to impress with progress on the reset of the business after a troubling couple of years.

Liberum has a target price of 400p on Superdry and has just upgraded Ted Baker from 180p to 225p after an impressive 60% run for shares to as high as 161p in this month alone."
Liberum's target just short of mine at 250p
Agree, mostly anyway. In hindsight if I'd held onto some of my more mainstream stuff from 18 month ago, like LLOY for instance, I'd be 50% up now. But there again I've made some good profits on my lesser holdings too.
I'm in TED hadn't joined the Superdry crowd. Hadn't thought of them TBH but I'd worry that they're a fashion brand that is going out of fashion (says a 68 year old laugh) Actually is TED still a fashion wear too?
I read elsewhere that ASOS is still a good one to go into, I was in and out of BOO over the last couple of years but not ASOS.

Oh that was a surprise, what happened at EUA, no RNS out. Just another P&D by the big holders?
I'm tired of the whole thing now, maybe that's what the MM want(?).

Has anyone joined me in a flutter on Lordstown Motors Corporation (RIDE:NASDAQ)? The share price plummeted after the company pulled their entrant from the San Felipe 250 race in Baja California, Mexico.

They are building utility vehicles (AKA pickups) with an electric motor in each wheel. This means a nice flat floor for the battery pack and simple drivetrain. The company has an ex-General Motors factory and GM have shares in the company.
The race vehicle didn't break down, but the power consumption running in deep sand was greater than anticipated, so the team knew it wouldn't complete the next stage.

I'm gambling on this being a minor hiccup, as the average pickup buyer is probably spends more time on tarmac than in deep sand.

The share price is already on the turnaround, and up over 6% from when I bought them this afternoon.

In other news Fuel Cell Inc (FCEL) is up 8% today. Is this a turnaround or just a blip on their steep and slippery slide from the lofty height they were at in February?

Pleased I put some small gamble money into Corcel (CRCL) just after Xmas, has been a solid one and up 23% last week and 18% so far today. Going to hold for a while, but close to a bag...

Analysts suggest it has massive legs, might be worth a look for anyone wanting some more green shares.

Paul
Another little spurt on today.....
Yep. I'd normally drop out by now as it's doubled on my initial investment but I think it has more legs yet and market sentiment is very strong. But then they said that with SYME...
I've stuck some more into it, the feeling is strong with this one........

My thought too. chance to buy more?

RMS made steady gains earlier but I see it's ebbing away (again).

KIST took off this morning too.

Bit annoyed my buy order for abml was set too optimistic at .90, although I'm sure it'll be down again at some point in its future!

Bought some more BEEM.

Green stuff (including Nikola surprisingly) seem to be doing quite well. Nasdaq isn't looking that great either.

Edit: and they drop! hehe

sold a fair ££ out of KWEB (Chinese tech in $) and at a 25% loss, painful.... Been going nowhere apart from down since i bought right at the top

DVRG looked good yest @30.5p as it seems undervalued, up 10% atm. Hopefully another 20% and KWEB will be just a distant 'mare.

The highlight of my day is seeing the salty shorters of Nikola on Stocktwits.

I'm still way in the red but there's been a little bit of positive news today and it looks to be breaking out of the downtrend (for now).
