    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.

    Hi
    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.

    Hope this helps.

    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.

    well its 10p now, with the RNS through I would be looking at 12-15p and then the following deals could even push it up to 30p. The sky is the limit with this share

    Agreed, it has huge potential. Especially if the major consumer brands get on board.

    What else are you currently in?
