Stanley Gibbons: Above 10p could lead back towards 18p

Stanley Gibbons (LON:SGI) was founded in 1856, but it would appear that the troubles at the stamp collecting group in the recent past have been worthy of a Dickensian novel. In a documentary about the eponymous founder of the company, it was revealed that he became a womaniser some years after setting up shop. It…

Interestingly enough, it may be that Hurricane wins the “punters” prize after the latest announcement. Is it not ironic that the small-cap companies who tend…

It may be the case that after the Horse Hill mania of the past few years, Alba Mineral Resources (LON:ALBA) is finally in sharp focus as a decent small cap prospect.

While 2016 was full of black swans, surprises, shocks and an overload of celebrity deaths, the rise and rise of the online retailer was at least one predictable concept that was in line with expectations.

It should be the case that cyber security is a no-brainer area of growth given that hacking and cyber fraud are on the rise. However, it would appear that many are happy to leave their cyber guard down. I have to admit, the immediate aftermath of any profits warning gives me the instinct to run…
