  3. QUOTE (Baggins @ Friday 16/03/07 09:48am) Baggins - don't think you're going to get any answers here... there is a correlation between quiet threads & stock performance. FMG is one of the most extraordinary stocks on the ASX. ASIC investigations - FMG hiccups, then powers on. Despite the market downturn, then the tragic cyclone aftermath (when logic said FMG should be punished due to delays) - it just keeps going up. Crikey reported on this phenomenon the other day - hinting at 'something' - but FMG just kept going up. The low free float plus management's capability is key to this stock. One of the best stories I have for the share market - Met an unassuming very nice gent at a TNG investor presentation in Brisbane recently who is top 20 for FMG (he was there with his broker). He bought FMG when it was a penny dreadful, and has no thoughts of selling his holding in the near future. He loves how FMG has delivered what they said they would, so far on time (although production target looks to be out now). At today's price (around $20), his holding is worth $12m. Original investment $36k. The holy grail of the share investor! And, interestingly....he had never heard of hc or ss or any of the share chat sites. cheers Marny PS sadly...don't own any FMG. Well done to those who do http://www.sharescene.com/html/emoticons/smile.gif

    In contrast to hajda's grey...how about a touch of blue? Sam is a big man and can do big things - Bobby Godsell, AngloGold In an interview on Radio 2000 @ 18:20 on Tuesday, 13 February 2007 [miningmx.com] -- SAM Jonah found the world "full of opportunity" and could not be restricted to the board of AngloGold Ashanti, said the South African gold company's CEO, Bobby Godsell. Speaking on the Moneyweb Power Hour, Godsell said he regretted not being able to keep Jonah at the company. "He's still my friend," Godsell said. This was after an announcement today confirming the resignation of Jonah as non-executive chairman of the AngloGold Ashanti board. Jonah presided over the merger of Ashanti Goldfields with AngloGold Ashanti in 2003. "Sam arrived in South Africa and found the world full of opportunity. He's an entrepreneur and what's happened in the board room has reflected that," said Godsell. "Sam is a big man and will do big things for the continent. It was always going to be difficult to restrict him to the board room and I regret not being able to do that," said Godsell. Jonah serves on more than a few boards of listed public companies including Moto Goldmines and Equinox Minerals. Commenting on AngloGold Ashanti's new financial year, Godsell said the forecast for 200,000 oz higher gold production year-on-year was more modest than the group would have hoped. This was owing to a pit wall failure at the group's Geita mine in Tanzania, and seismicity at one of its South African gold mines. http://www.miningmx.com/radio/628391.htm cheers Marny

    bless u knotta...hope you're enjoying that steak?! http://www.sharescene.com/html/emoticons/smile.gif cheers m Chemeq downs tools in battle for survival 6th February 2007, 7:45 WST Endangered WA biotech Chemeq has suspended production amid mounting investor accusations that the Federal Government has not done enough to help the company. With fears growing that Chemeq’s novel animal treatment could end up in foreign hands, the company yesterday confirmed it would appeal against last week’s WA Supreme Court ruling that it breached the conditions of a $60 million funding package from its US bondholders. Chemeq is yet to make a decision on the fate of the 30 staff at its Rockingham plant but chief executive David Williams, who axed almost two-thirds of the company’s workforce as part of a review of the business in September, yesterday said no staff had been laid off. However, the factory has been put on care and maintenance and Chemeq said it was also reviewing projects in a bid to defer activity and cut its costs while its future was determined. The company became embroiled in litigation after the bondholders, Stark Trading and Harmony Capital Partners, demanded immediate repayment of their $60 million debt, claiming Chemeq failed to meet a revenue target as set out in the convertible bonds deed poll. The Supreme Court last week ruled in favour of the bondholders. Chemeq’s board and senior management spent the weekend assessing the details of the decision and Mr Williams yesterday said the board believed there were “genuine grounds for appealâ€ÂÂÂÂÂ. “Chemeq is obliged to appeal the decision in the interests of its shareholders,†Mr Williams said. “While the initial decision is obviously an adverse outcome for the company, we are committed to taking all possible steps to protect the interests of our shareholders.†However, Chemeq will have to first secure orders from the Supreme Court to suspend the immediate repayment of the bondholders’ $60 million debt. Its application to maintain the status quo will be heard this afternoon. While the legal bills pile up, anger among its largely retail shareholder base is also growing. Former founding director and major shareholder Graeme Major said Government tax deductions on offer to new technology companies were useless when the companies were not paying tax. “You can’t deduct something from nothing. We certainly have a few tax losses to offset against income in future years but that is for when you are going well,†he said. Mr Major quit Chemeq’s board more than two years ago when the company was grappling with a cash crisis but he has not given up hope of seeing the company successfully commercialise its product. He also said there were people who were willing to kick in funds to support Chemeq if it was ever needed. Investor Michael Flanagan, who said he faced significant losses if Chemeq collapsed, was also critical of the Government for not fighting to ensure the treatment stayed Australian-owned. “They are talking about a 49 per cent stake of Qantas not leaving the country, what about Chemeq which was founded, discovered, developed, produced and sold here?†he said. “This would be a great loss for the Australian economy and it is not rhetoric it is true, because there is no competition for this product.†Chemeq shares were suspended ahead of the court decision. http://www.thewestaustralian.com.au/default.aspx?MenuID=159
  9. In reply to: Cooper on Tuesday 06/02/07 03:28pm Hi Cooper Demerger disclosure document released by ARU (12 Jan) - ARUO holders will receive 1 NUPO (assuming that will be the code) for every 3 ARUO held on the record date.

  10. First post on NUP.... http://www.sharescene.com/html/emoticons/smile.gif Despite this week's U correction, NUP has all the boxes ticked for a great future.

  14. In reply to: albir60 on Wednesday 31/01/07 12:41pm good luck albir60...Ted had the same thoughts as you! Having investments in Africa, I know first hand the painful experience of sovereign issues biting & am very aware of that particular risk issue http://www.sharescene.com/html/emoticons/ph34r.gif However, Thailand is much lower on the risk scale, but always a point to keep in my mind. As neo pointed out, quarterly is due. cheers Marny
