hot Bravo Fastnet Oil & Gas!

By Ben Turney 11 hours ago

This morning, Fastnet Oil & Gas (FAST) announced it had awarded 5,000,000 options to its Chief Financial Officer, Will Holland. There might be some complaints about the size of this award, especially as Mr Holland currently holds no Fastnet stock, but the vesting conditions of the options are worth paying attention to. Rather than grant Mr Holland a free ride on Fastnet’s share price recovering from its all time lows, the board has set some stretching, yet possibly achievable, targets over the next few years. Long-term holders might not be overly enamoured with these, but for anyone new to the stock (including Mr. Holland!!!) this could prove to be a positive alignment of director and shareholder interests.

hot SpreadBet Pick: what next for the FTSE100?

By Ben Turney 13 hours ago

My recent call on buying the rising FTSE100 at 6,644 has been a very good one. Although the German and American markets didn’t fall far enough to trigger my entry targets for the DAX or Dow, within the space of a fortnight, Britain’s main index rose through its target and jumped over 100 points. Once again the MIDAS Method has proved itself to be a superb indicator. However, with the FTSE100 now trading at 6,759, the question is can it make a push on that obstinate all time record? Better yet, can it finally break through 7,000?

Ladbrokes at 137p, can it emulate William Hill's success?

By Robert Sutherland Smith 15 hours ago

One the golden rules of investing is the one which says that companies whose profitability is dependent on politics and government regulation should never be too highly rated and even then, prepare for possible disappointment. Such now is the case of Ladbroke (LAD) shares. To its problems is added the fact that the government plans for the greater taxation of gambling (or ‘gaming’ as some lime to call it.) Technology is changing the economics and commercial opportunities for betting companies, as it is changing much else. And wherever technology goes so too does Her Majesty’s Treasury and with tax revenue collectors following up behind. That must make nonsense of those early cash flow models around at Ladbrokes, carefully and thoughtfully built to anticipate future cash flows if and when the company starts its recovery.

The bulk of these options go to employees and there shouldn’t be many concerns about this. I appreciate the need to keep the troops happy and to retain key players. Giving employees a sense of ownership in the business has to be positive. However, the 2.65million options the directors have awarded themselves are in extremely poor taste. Broadly speaking, I’ve become a fan of Xcite’s over the last four or five months, but I’m under no illusions that recent performance can yet be judged a success. The new strategy is risky and so far, judging by the share price, the market is not convinced. Xcite’s board is in serious need of a credibility overhaul.
