yeah i'm watching them very closely. i got in and am 20% up so may consider selling.
Well they could secure funding from the chinese or not, looks like they will from reading but fairly risky.
Profits profit if you're not prepared to risk waiting... plus there wasnt actually any news today which spouted the increase.... very strange.

I'm new to this, just wanted to know how you guys research companies and decide which ones are worth buying?
I research mostly via the internet from news sources and also company profiles via their websites. Try to establish the potential of the company based on this information and predict where the share could be in X amount of time.
Normally I buy shares only on the uptake, very rarely will invest in stocks that are extremely volatile and have either bad or no news forthcoming.
Do a lot of reading before investing in any company, evaluate the risk and always consider the worst.
Some people analyse charts which can work if you are shorting a stock but I've found its less reliable.
Just for those who are new to buying shares, you might notice me and others on here using abbreviations. Below I've listed what a few mean....
SP - Share Price
MM - Market Maker
Investing Short Term - Buying a share short term and holding it for a short period of time.
Investing Long Term - Buying a share and holding it for a long period of time.
RNS - Regulatory News Service (the exchanges service of releasing news about companies)
LSE - London Stock Exchange
This is just a few but it might help people understand some of my posts
Edited due to pedantic comments of some utter tools.

This one looks ok actually, RNS any day now, company has huge potential with possible buys from coca cola and the likes...

Might invest a couple of hundred short time in this to pay for some beer for freshers week :P
