Evil Knievil: A close shave

Capita (LON:CPI): their results statement was as complicated an affair that I can recall. But CPI is solvent and debt is coming down. I am long at 49p and have no intention of selling.

The FCA may be investigating Amigo (LON:AMGO) on a wider basis than previously assumed. This does not matter as long as there is a company left over after the further delays of implementing the Scheme of Arrangement. I think there will be. A buy at under 20p.

The Supreme Court decision on Uber strikes me as barmy. In the end the distinction between employed and self-employed must cause economic distortion. It would be more sensible if the engaged individual were to sign up to a self-employed status if he were to prefer it.

Finally, Cheltenham was kind to me in 2021 – as regular readers know all too well it can be pretty vicious. I made £72,000 and got there by winning £90,000 on the Gold Cup on the last day. A close shave.

    Spot of Gold Cup after-timing there Simon?
    Your loyal followers might have liked your Cheltenham advice, particularly after your recent Australian success.

    Would have much valued your Gold Cup selection (i.e. before the race), but very glad that you had a good Cheltenham. It always springs surprises, and can certainly be vicious! I didn’t do too well this year. I almost backed Minella Indo in the Gold Cup – but didn’t. Henry de Bromhead had a very good festival.
