    QUOTE (romaioi @ Sunday 23/01/05 06:41am) Hi romaioi Excellant analysis. Just too add one more feature is what is often called a Rising Three pattern. Its not a perfect reflection of this, but its pretty close. A rising 3 pattern is a continuation pattern that consists of 5 candles. The first candle is a long green candle, as we had on the 17th. It is then followed by 3 candles, usually smaller bodied and confined to the range of the initial green candles (between its hi' and low) The final candle is a long green candle again that opens at or above the close of the initial green candle and closes higher again. It works best in an existing uptrend, which we dont have ... but the psychology of the pattern is still valid. IF we have can now stay above the mid point of Fridays range, we will have further confirmation of the bullish nature of BQT. If BQT cant close above the 28c in the early part of the coming week, then BQT maye well reverse. YOu will see these "3 down days" in a stock often ... and to then be followed by a Bullish candle shows that the maket is favouring the BULLS and that the 3 down days lacked conviction. You can see this in the volume of each associated day. So lots of "IF's" http://www.ShareScene.com/html/emoticons/cool.gif * We need to get above that 29/30c area. This is where the previous uptrend started from, and will really spark some interest. It also seems to be where the forums began focusing on "supposed contracts coming" ... oh it all sounds so familar. * Once above there, that will become support and we can target our next price level, this being, for me, 33c. Interesting times ....

    Still waiting for it to find a support level. See if 17.5 holds .... I believe Financials due out end of Jan, so wait to see whether it can stay afloat.
  5. Was thinking SLX would hold the 120 area and move Nth ... with the current setup ... but that peak below yesterday to 119, whilst its only a small amount, makes me think that a bounce off 112/114 area is more likely.

    http://www.theaustralian.news.com.au/commo...255E643,00.html OzEmail tilts towards iiNet Michael Sainsbury January 21, 2005 PERTH-BASED internet service provider iiNet is in the box seat to buy rival OzEmail for about $100 million when bids for the company close today. A successful deal would give iiNet about 450,000 internet customers, making it the third-largest ISP in Australia behind telcos Telstra and Optus. IiNet is likely to be the last company remaining in the drawn-out sale process that has been under way since last June, when OzEmail's owner, MCI, began scouting for a buyer. IiNet is understood to be happy to pay more than rivals SP Telemedia and No2 ISP and telco Optus for the business. US-based MCI, once known as WorldCom, was pushed into bankruptcy in 2001 after accounting irregularities were exacerbated by the global technology crash. Its founder, Bernie Ebbers, and other executives face criminal charges in the US this year. WorldCom bought OzEmail for $520 million in 1999, making instant multi-millionaires of its founders Sean Howard, Trevor Kennedy and recently elected MP Malcolm Turnbull. Earlier the ISP became the first Australian company to list on the US technology-heavy Nasdaq index. As a mainly residential ISP, OzEmail has remained an anomaly on MCI's books, but its sale was delayed while the company emerged from Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in the US. OzEmail's customer base has shrunk from about 500,000 in 2000 to about 250,000 as it was starved of capital during its owners' woes. But the OzEmail brand name is still strong. In a report on iiNet published this week, Macquarie Equities analyst Gary Pinge forecasts a sale price of $100-120 million. "We estimate that OzEmail achieves revenues of around $80 million to $90 million per annum and has a 30-40 per cent earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortisation margin. Based on these metrics, an EBITDA multiple of 3.5 to 4 times seems reasonable." IiNet is one of the few remaining local survivors of the late 1990s internet boom to have improved in value. It listed its shares for $1 in 1999. The stock was trading at $3.20 at yesterday's close, valuing the group at $260 million. Macquarie Equities estimates that the acquisition of OzEmail would lift iiNet's reported earnings per share by 12 per cent next financial year and 22 per cent in 2006-07. IiNet is in the process of building its own broadband (high-speed internet) network using Telstra's copper wires and ADSL technology.
  9. http://www.theaustralian.news.com.au/commo...255E643,00.html Santos hails huge oil strike Nigel Wilson, Energy writer January 21, 2005 SANTOS has made the biggest oil strike in its 50-year history – a discovery that could dramatically transform the company's long-term prospects. The full ramifications of the find off the coast of Indonesia have yet to be determined, but it has immediately quelled concerns about Santos's reliance on the declining fields of the Cooper Basin in central Australia. Analysts believe the Jeruk discovery could be worth $1.25 a share, or more than $700 million, to Santos. The company's shares finished 8c weaker at $8.60 yesterday, with the latest drill results released after the close of trading. After months of speculation, Santos yesterday confirmed its Jeruk discovery, offshore from Surabaya in Java, contained "likely recoverable reserves in excess of 170 million barrels of oil". This compares with the 120 million barrels reserves estimated by Woodside Petroleum at Chinguetti off the west African nation of Mauritania, which is now being developed as a $US625 million ($823 million) project. A find of 170 million barrels would be worth billions of dollars in revenue to Santos, which is a 50 per cent partner in the Sampang "production sharing contract". The balance is held by the Indonesian company PT Medco, which last year bought Australia's Novus Petroleum. The find is likely to transform Santos, which has been facing the prospect of fading petroleum reserves from its key operations in the Cooper Basin, without a substantial replacement in its portfolio. After the stock market closed yesterday, Santos reported a column depth – the amount of oil-bearing sand – of at least 379m in the Jeruk-2 well. But due to the technical difficulties, the well had not achieved the planned total depth. "The results of Jeruk-2 are very encouraging," Santos managing director John Ellice-Flint said. "We are currently integrating all data into a final evaluation of the well, which will help us narrow a likely reserve range for the field." Analysts previously suggested Jeruk could contain up to 500 million barrels of oil. But people close to the drilling program suggested that because total depth had not been reached, the available data indicated that Jeruk could contain as much as 700 million barrels. In a report published last week, UBS energy analyst Gordon Ramsay said the Jeruk structure was estimated to contain between 250 million and 300 millions barrels of oil. "We view Jeruk as a potential re-rating trigger for Santos," Mr Ramsay said. "Although early days, we believe Jeruk has the potential to be worth up to around $1 a share to Santos. John Hirjee of Deutsche Bank said that if 170 million barrels was confirmed, it would be worth 51c a share to Santos. But reserves in the range of 350 million to 500 million barrels would be worth 90c to $1.25 to the company.

  14. http://www.theaustralian.news.com.au/commo...255E643,00.html Mystery buyer shops for Miller's Katherine Jimenez January 19, 2005 AILING discount variety retailer Miller's Retail could be in for a shake-up amid speculation that a mystery buyer is accumulating its shares. About 24 million Miller's shares have changed hands since the company revealed a profit downgrade last Friday. The share price has jumped 24c to $1.10 in that time, including a rise of 11c yesterday. Sources said the activity was led by one buyer -- possibly a private equity company such as Catalyst -- accumulating shares via UBS. UBS bought more than 4million of the 9.2 million shares that traded yesterday, at price of between $1 and $1.11. The investor could have amassed a stake of up to 9 per cent and could seek to make changes in the company. Speculation about the future of Miller's -- the owner of Katies and Go-Lo -- has been running rife for some time. Miller's co-founders Ian Miller, who has a seat on the board, and chief executive Gary Perlstein own nearly 20percent of the stock. But there have been suggestions that Miller's might need to close or sell parts of its business and make management and board changes. Last year Brett Blundy, the founder and biggest shareholder of retailer Brazin, stepped aside to make way for a new chief executive. Last Friday, Miller's issued its second profit warning in less than seven months. It advised that full-year earnings before interest, tax and amortisation would be cut by $5.2 million to $43million, after a disastrous first half in which earnings were savaged by up to 20 per cent. The collapse in earnings was again blamed on fierce price competition from struggling rival New Zealand Warehouse Group. Price cuts in that discount variety space, poor sales in part due to supply chain issues and a "meaningful" reduction in currency gains were also blamed. Citigroup Smith Barney immediately slashed its target price and 2005 and 2006 profit forecasts. It questioned Miller's ability to meet its new forecast, highlighting the thin cash flow the company had to meet debt repayments. "Bank support is likely to be highly dependent on a clear turnaround in operating metrics," Citigroup said. Miller's supply chain was another concern for the analyst. Macquarie Bank described the first-half performance as "disappointing" and said it was surprised by the "scale of deterioration" in the apparel business. It also had concerns about its supply chain. "This is the second Christmas in a row that one of Miller's divisions has been impacted by supply chain issues," Macquarie wrote. It concluded by saying "we expect things could get worse before they get better". Other industry observers agreed. Miller's discount variety business would struggle to compete with powerful rivals such as Coles Myer, Woolworths and Warehouse and had other problems in its apparel business, they said. Macquarie said that one of management's key initiatives last year was to lift its price points to raise margins. "This initiative appears to have failed to gain traction," it said.

    http://www.smh.com.au/news/Business/AMP-pu...5810915044.html AMP pushed up as capital return looms By Lisa Murray January 19, 2005 The prospect of a $1 billion-plus capital return for investors has boosted AMP's share price to its highest level in almost two years. Chief executive Andrew Mohl, who was speaking at the company's financial planners conference in Auckland yesterday, is expected to update the market on AMP's capital management plans at its full-year results on February 14. In a report released yesterday, JP Morgan insurance analyst Shane Fitzgerald estimated AMP's surplus capital at almost $600 million and said the group was capable of returning double that amount to shareholders. Mr Fitzgerald said that AMP was unlikely to "fire off all cannons at once" but investors should not underestimate the potential for a big capital return. He expected the company to return capital through a special payment to shareholders of up to $900 million and debt reduction of up to $350 million. AMP shares jumped 17c yesterday to close at $7.60, their highest level since February 4, 2003, when the company was plagued by capital problems and on the verge of announcing the amputation of its gangrenous UK arm, now HHG. Some brokers also said AMP's share price was being boosted by lingering rumours that ANZ was running the ruler over the wealth management group.

  21. Currently watching EPT with a close eye .... * Got key support at 89c, at which the price is settling at the moment * Currently the daily hi's are getting slowly lower, but conversely, the daily lo's are holding that 89c level, with the possiblity of a symetrical triangle setup. In these situation we get the market gradually agreing on a price (maybe 89c) and then someone spooks them (announcement, rumour etc) and the price just explodes Nthwards. * VOlume has dropped, but the price is holding relatively well. Going to be interesting to see what happens in the lead up to end of Jan.

    QUOTE (romaioi @ Monday 17/01/05 07:50pm) Here is a chart with a slightly longer timeframe to show where romaioi's resistance point of 30c comes from. What I note is * Since mid Oct. this stock hasnt been able to put on more than 3 days of higher hi's / higher lo's. You can even see this with yesterdays trading and whilst the close back at 27 could be quite bullish, its still shakey ground. BQT needs to put a string of ups together with a limited pull back * Since mid Oct the stock has range traded between roughly 20 and 25c. Great if you feel comfortable with trading the swings, but could potentially result in a lost opportunity if/when this things decides to move. * I bought in at 23/23.5 on the run back in Nov, but that move failed to break 25c. * The last few days have seen some volume kicking in which we havent seen since Nov, and also a break above 25c. For those trading a breakout style this could have been a trigger to buy, depending on your plan and whether or not you wait for confirmation such as a retesting of support etc. * Since the stock isnt trending at the moment, we use Momentun indicators. MACD gave a buy back on the 31 Dec area. RSI gave a BUY back on the 14 Oct with its move from below 70. Pretty gutsy of you used that one http://www.ShareScene.com/html/emoticons/cool.gif You will note RSI is getting close to 70 and the possibility of an "over bought" situation occuring. This is common in a stock which has been consolidating for a period of time and will often signficy the beginning of a new trend. * Personally, yesterday was good price action. The biggest plus was the testing of 25c and then the pushing back to 27c close. Shows at a psychological level that the players arent prepared, yet, to see it move backwards. The volume was reasonable, so we have fresh holders coming in at these prices to create some new support. 25c should be support and if broken, wont be good. For me I have next resistance at around 29c as this was a brief stalling point back at the end of Oct, as well as back in June. * There are no key divergences occuring between price and indicators to suggest a reversal ... so all in all .. if we can just stay above 25c, all is looking good. Just need another dominant bullish candle to show this isn't a false start. In terms of price predictions ... I dont get into that. As long as BQT shows signs of continuing, I hold. The red line in the chart is my trailing stop. YOu can see how close I got to exiting on 16th Dec .... Current stop is 24c.
