    Sun, 15 Jun 2014 09:48:00 GMT

    Can penny shares be 'shorted' ?
    ....Yes , all the time...but the mm's need to 'borrow' your shares to enable the 'bet' to be transacted. IT's a bet rather than an investment and CANNOT 'win' for the 'shorter' unless the price falls.!

    IF the stock looks healthy and unlikely to fall, then the shorter will almost certainly 'lose'unless he can 'help' the stock down....Now how the hell can he possibly do that ?

    * OFF TOPIC but important that all AIM investors understand the pitfalls of investing in stocks that are being shorted down to rock-bottom levels?

    So you think that is 'cute', now you can buy at the lowest sp for months?'ve gotta be on:-

    ~ *3,995 voted so far ~THEY CAN'T ALL BE WRONG?
    (That's a lot of irate investors?)

    # Thanks to all those that have supported this HMGovt epetition !

    Many pi's are questioning the validity of 'short selling' and are voting in their thousands....the people have spoken, they are feeling hurt and disenfranchised.

    The 'not so quick' and 'unsavvy' cannot be blamed for having their life's savings 'shorted' away just because they cannot spend hours on end glued to their computer screens. Having to work during trading hours, investors cannot keep in touch with hourly movements on stocks that they have chosen for their retirement and had them locked into ISA's. What gives shorters the given right to play down stocks at their own leisure thus profiting at everyone else's loss....on perfectly good stocks with sound fundamentals?

    ..campaign heading for 4,000 !

    HMGovt epitition to make short-selling illegal (or better regulated?)

    **did ya vote?

    Full post:

    HMGovt-epitition (closes 24th September 2014, so still plenty of time to get those votes in)

    A lot of irate investors ... are voting for this campaign...?

    *How the big players transfers YOUR money into THEIR money !


    *Davide Serra,
    Chief fund manager and banking adviser to the Govt wants the FCA to investigate!

    Ever wondered why your investments often go down, even on GOOD NEWS ?

    IT is estimated that over 90% of AIM stocks are INFESTED by short-sellers !

    Many highly popular stocks are going down even when the news is positive !

    IF you think it will help....*post the link/s on, (including my full post if you want?)LSE, Advfn, twitter, iii, anywhere !

    At last this share is starting to provide some return. I would class myself a longer term holder in aeg as have held this share for several years - benefiting from a lot of the peaks and troughs. I believe this share is showing it's greatest potential and could be a multi bagger as we go in to 2015. Mr Spinks has a proven track record and for what he has already demonstrated with aeg, I cannot believe this share isn't higher. The recent media coverage has been tremendous. I have two questions,

    1. What do we think the 2013 results will show? Due next week.

    2. What's your thoughts for the share as we progress through 2014 and why are we still sat a market cap of c. 12m with such growth potential and strong management team?

    Appreciate your thoughts and would like to try and get this thread going with some valuable discussions.

    It does look good but take care. If they are using silicates as a binder, this creates glasses in boiler burners. So depends on whether they can meet the specs if major clients reliably. Large plants don't work well with high levels of fouling. That said it does sound like a major cost benefit if you are starting with dry material like sawdust, so a way will be found even if just blending with other pellets. Dyor By luckbyjudgement

    Yum, yum!

    Whole interview could be summarized as 'NO BRAINER'. Also liked the look of his clear-headed, unhesitant sure footedness.

    He himself bagged a load last October at 2.5 & 2.75p.

    Seems others are now waking up to very serious potential &, like us, smelling an imminent multi-bag.

    My only regret...never seized the opportunity of a massive top-up last week.

    Thoroughly agree.

    Had serious concerns with such on-going violent escalation in Ukraine. In my opinion today's RNS link demonstrates a BOD of exceptional ability to diversify & adapt both in Ukraine itself & expanded supply chain from Montenegro & Spain. All this in just a few months.

    Tue, 02 Sep 2014 11:42:31 GMT

    Hi there. Done a ton of research and came up with a similar view to you that when we get the forestry valuation in in a couple of months, we should be due a major re-rate as this value would dwarf our current market cap, even at conservative levels of $ per hectare. I think and would hope that management are working hard with timber management organisations and the like to be able to present a clear strategy on how they would monetise the asset in the short and medium term, so this could be presented when they are clearer on what they have. Either way - by year end this will rerate, without this canadian asset, underlying performance should exceed broker expectations given the currency point alone. bought some more this morning, at a slightly higher price than I wanted as was holding out for VLK results. Turns out they were rubbish and should have bought in yesterday here having sold yesterday. you live and learn

    Chipman, totally agree...and I am on it. This company was already going places, before this, potentially, game-changing deal with the Metis. Mr Spinks just keeps on pulling bigger, more interesting rabbits from his hat. Value here is tricky (very) to work out and understand, (we have only just doubled our estimate of the acreage!), BUT, it is way north of where we are now for sure. As ever patience will pay here. Good luck everyone.
  • Something has to give here... by ChipMan
    Tue, 02 Sep 2014 02:56:03 GMT

    I have been following this thread and the company's announcements for some time and it seems to me that this company has now developed, subject to understanding how technically it can be accounted for or sold/leased an asset base that makes a mockery of it's market cap. Having worked in the Biomass space with exposure to forestry for many years now, it seems to me that this asset in Canada could have immense value to all of the partners involved including AEG, if it can be valued properly, packaged for sale or at least the rights as we read in the announcements and press coverage at anywhere above the baseline valuations easily identifiable by reading the many announcements by forestry investment organisations. If the company can bring this value, or their 45% of it to their balance sheet, I wonder what this will do the the value of the shares, does anyone understand how this might work? In addition, if say they sold even a few hectares (or a few hundred/thousand, let alone 200,000) to one of these Timberland investment groups, see the Mail article on AEG today, what would this do to the company's value if say they sold at $2000/ha (I pick this number as being much lower than any I have found for such deals over the past 5 years on TIMO sites, which seem to go from $3.5k to over $6k per hectare depending on where you look) and would this be a balance sheet value for all of the hectares, now apparently over 200k, or at least the AEG 45% of the potential value? Interesting that Canada is number 6 on the list of safe investment markets on the websites I have seen, a far cry from the Ukrainian position on which the company initially built it's business. This deal makes the Ukrainian business almost irrelevant if they can monetise even a small portion of this forestry asset it seems to me. And just think how much wood chip/biomass could come out of this scale of forestry, regardless of the much higher value saw log timber! In short, this has a value, cut it or not, but much more if they do and even greater if they build a power station to burn all of the inevitable waste and low quality wood there; this is extremely interesting. Student, you had better get a student loan and buy some more AEG while you still can, I have a feeling this is going places faster than we might have thought even a few months ago...anyone else done any research? Would be very keen to understand what might be in the offing and how it might impact the share.

    Once the asset has a monetary value and AEG secure the loan needed to build a power station. Not surprised the forest is double the original estimate; RGS said at the AGM that he flew in a helicopter for 4 days over looking the trees and only saw 10%..! 500,000 acres is massive equivelent to 780sq miles...

    Very good news again from AEG - now estimating c200,000 hectares of forestry under KAQUO Canadian corporation management, compared to original c100,000 hectares. I hope it's a sign of similar arrangements to come - it's a unique deal with huge potential. Very excited for all concerned... but wondering when the market will wake up to the company's true worth?!

    Is huge. This is a company maker size deal, and am very excited to hear about the levels and quality of timber they think they can extract. Wonder if this slips under the radar today. Elite - have you followed Richard Spinks before?
  • Excellent News by elite
    Thu, 28 Aug 2014 06:39:51 GMT

    As usual, back Richard and he will transform the company. A rare case of a CEO proving his worth very quickly indeed. "Following the formalisation of the joint venture arrangements and the establishment of the joint venture company, KAQUO Forestry and Natural Resources Development Corporation ("KAQUO"), in which the Group shall have a 45% equity interest, the Directors of AEG now expect that KAQUO will have the rights to commercialise a significantly larger hectarage than at first envisaged, and in any case not less than 200,000 hectares (c.500,000 acres) of high quality forestry in Alberta."

    The AEG Chairman said at the AGM that all future announcements would be " in a timely manner " . Therefore I would expect the interims we not be in the last week of September ( the last possible date allowed ) etc
  • RE: Results by earlsfield
    Tue, 19 Aug 2014 11:06:46 GMT

    Would have thought that we won't get the interims until end Sept perhaps, in line with prior year, so a little wait yet. Perhaps we'll get an update on Canada before that, although I was looking into forestry valuations and how they are derived and it looks like it would be a very lengthy process
