Any ideas on where to with this stock which seems to be floundering compared to opposition SIG?

Floundering? you are hard to please! sp has moved from around $4 a couple of years ago to $6.40 and during that time shareholders have had the opportunity to participate in the float of SOT at .25 (now $1.26) and NHC last year at .40 (now .66), an old style co run on the basis of thin carpets and thick dividends, I hold plenty of them all.

This is possibly not a trade stock but SOL will get plenty from either dividends or Capital return dividends from NHC who have just received $500m from sale of Indonesian mine equity. SOL is major shareholder. Anyone else have an opinion on how the funds will be utilised?

Souls Private Equity Limited was sponsored onto the public lists by the Soul Pattinson Group on 16th

December 2004 with an equity raising of some $130 million. As outlined in the ChairmanÃÆâ€â„¢ÃƒÆ’ƒâہ¡ÃƒÆ’‚¢ÃƒÆ’¢Ã¢Ã¢Ã¢Ã¢â€š¬Ã…¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚¬ÃƒÆ’…¡Ãƒâہ¡ÃƒÆ’‚¬ÃƒÆ’¢Ã¢Ã¢Ã¢Ã¢â€š¬Ã…¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚¬ÃƒÆ’…¾Ãƒâہ¡ÃƒÆ’‚¢s address, SPEL

pursues a long term investment philosophy into ÃÆâ€â„¢ÃƒÆ’ƒâہ¡ÃƒÆ’‚¢ÃƒÆ’¢Ã¢Ã¢Ã¢Ã¢â€š¬Ã…¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚¬ÃƒÆ’…¡Ãƒâہ¡ÃƒÆ’‚¬ÃƒÆ’â€Â¦ÃƒƒÂ¢Ãƒ¢Ã¢Ã¢â€š¬Ã…¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚¬ÃƒÆ’…âہ“private equityÃÆâ€â„¢ÃƒÆ’ƒâہ¡ÃƒÆ’‚¢ÃƒÆ’¢Ã¢Ã¢Ã¢Ã¢â€š¬Ã…¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚¬ÃƒÆ’…¡Ãƒâہ¡ÃƒÆ’‚¬ÃƒÆ’â€Å¡Ãƒƒâہ¡ÃƒÆ’‚ and listed small medium enterprises (SMEs).

In the seven and a half months since listing, the management team at SPEL has been most active and at the

time of writing this report, we have reviewed in excess of 195 investment opportunities. When reviewing these

projects your managers have followed closely the Soul Pattinson investment strategy and thus we investigated

a wide range of investments, be they start-ups, venture capital, IPO pre-investment, Bio-tech, Life Sciences,

small through to large mature businesses.

We have focused on process with each project reviewed utilising our ÃÆâ€â„¢ÃƒÆ’ƒâہ¡ÃƒÆ’‚¢ÃƒÆ’¢Ã¢Ã¢Ã¢Ã¢â€š¬Ã…¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚¬ÃƒÆ’…¡Ãƒâہ¡ÃƒÆ’‚¬ÃƒÆ’â€Â¦ÃƒƒÂ¢Ãƒ¢Ã¢Ã¢â€š¬Ã…¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚¬ÃƒÆ’…âہ“three-filterÃÆâ€â„¢ÃƒÆ’ƒâہ¡ÃƒÆ’‚¢ÃƒÆ’¢Ã¢Ã¢Ã¢Ã¢â€š¬Ã…¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚¬ÃƒÆ’…¡Ãƒâہ¡ÃƒÆ’‚¬ÃƒÆ’â€Å¡Ãƒƒâہ¡ÃƒÆ’‚ model. In addition, the

overriding factor at each investment committee meeting held to review a proposed investment is ÃÆâ€â„¢ÃƒÆ’ƒâہ¡ÃƒÆ’‚¢ÃƒÆ’¢Ã¢Ã¢Ã¢Ã¢â€š¬Ã…¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚¬ÃƒÆ’…¡Ãƒâہ¡ÃƒÆ’‚¬ÃƒÆ’â€Â¦ÃƒƒÂ¢Ãƒ¢Ã¢Ã¢â€š¬Ã…¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚¬ÃƒÆ’…âہ“one out all

in the cycle approximately 85% of the projects are rejected relatively quickly, 10-12% are still under review and

the balance of 3-5% are being prepared for the final filter, which is SPEL Board approval. However, it should be

noted that the rule of ÃÆâ€â„¢ÃƒÆ’ƒâہ¡ÃƒÆ’‚¢ÃƒÆ’¢Ã¢Ã¢Ã¢Ã¢â€š¬Ã…¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚¬ÃƒÆ’…¡Ãƒâہ¡ÃƒÆ’‚¬ÃƒÆ’â€Â¦ÃƒƒÂ¢Ãƒ¢Ã¢Ã¢â€š¬Ã…¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚¬ÃƒÆ’…âہ“one out all outÃÆâ€â„¢ÃƒÆ’ƒâہ¡ÃƒÆ’‚¢ÃƒÆ’¢Ã¢Ã¢Ã¢Ã¢â€š¬Ã…¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚¬ÃƒÆ’…¡Ãƒâہ¡ÃƒÆ’‚¬ÃƒÆ’â€Å¡Ãƒƒâہ¡ÃƒÆ’‚ applies even at the SPEL Board of Directors meetings.

European and Australian clinical trials of sterile water in association with PerfectCapsuleÃÆâ€â„¢ÃƒÆ’ƒÂ¢Ãƒ¢Ã¢Ã¢â€š¬Ã…¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚¬ÃƒÆ’…¡ÃƒÆ’â€Å¡Ãƒƒâہ¡ÃƒÆ’‚® have shown reduced

capsule opacification after one year. Similar trials have now obtained ethics approvals in the United States of

Outlook for Souls Private Equity Limited

SPEL had experienced a very active 7 1/2 month period since listing on the ASX on 16 December 2004 with a

large number of projects reviewed resulting in 4 new investments during the period. The dealflow continues to

be strong with three significant investments and four potential IPOÃÆâ€â„¢ÃƒÆ’ƒâہ¡ÃƒÆ’‚¢ÃƒÆ’¢Ã¢Ã¢Ã¢Ã¢â€š¬Ã…¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚¬ÃƒÆ’…¡Ãƒâہ¡ÃƒÆ’‚¬ÃƒÆ’¢Ã¢Ã¢Ã¢Ã¢â€š¬Ã…¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚¬ÃƒÆ’…¾Ãƒâہ¡ÃƒÆ’‚¢s currently in the SPEL pipeline. The

management team remains optimistic about 2005/2006 year and especially so given the ongoing above

Operating and Financial Review

Souls Private Equity Limited was incorporated on 30 September 2004 with the objective to invest in private

equity investments as well as invest in other unlisted and listed investments. Souls Private Equity Limited initially

acquired six private equity investments, as seed portfolio. Acquisition of those private equity investments was

completed on 10 December 2004.

During the period 30 September 2004 to 10 December 2004, Souls Private Equity Limited did not trade.

Shares and options in Souls Private Equity Limited were listed on the Australian Stock Exchange Limited

commencing 16 December 2004.

The principal objective of the consolidated entity is to maximise returns to shareholders over the long-term

within risk parameters acceptable to the board of directors. This is achieved by investing in a combination of

unlisted and listed Australian and Asian securities. In essence, the consolidated entity will invest in and support

unlisted SMEs which offer high prospects for capital growth over the long-term. Investment in listed and

interest bearing securities will be an ongoing strategy, but particularly important in the formative years to

generate income whilst the unlisted portfolio is developed and matures.

Portfolio Performance and Results

The directors are pleased to report a consolidated profit after tax for the period of $2,478,000.

The long term listed investment portfolio has also performed well and increased in market value by $2,925,000.

Over 3 years - nothing???

Is SOL unloved? or just not speccie enough?


In March, the green signals slipped under my radar because I filter for liquid stocks, cutting off at $500K per day.

Today, the turnover clearly made the grade, and has done so for a while.


Possible Trading Idea: Buy the break of $10 for a potential upside of $11.60 (Fib 161.8%); careful around the 127.2%, where we often find serious resistance.




Going by the Weekly, it was a Buy since March, above $8.45; as it failed to break below the (green) trailing stop at $9.40, it's again a good buy or top-up opportunity. That's by the rationale: If it's not dropping to a "Sell", it's a reasonable "Buy".




PS: Can you spot the Bullish MACD Divergence? (Had I seen it before taking the snapshot, I would've drawn it in ;) )

Hi crooky


Try this website:



For SOL, the Divergence is in the weekly chart, where the Lows of November and March run in opposite (converging, or Bullish) directions.




On the Daily chart, there is no Divergence; the run from $8 to $10, which you correctly identified, is indicated (at least "supported") by the red MACD line crossing zero and, at the top, dropping back through the mottled blue line.
