The Weekend Briefing.

Question

Hi Alan, My name is Winston Anderson, a long term InvestSMART tragic. I have only written fan mail about 5 or 6 times in my life. What has prompted me here is your magnificent and informative article. What a month etc…… The first question is how many months did it take you to write? I was particularly amazed at the sub “The Advantage” Over all the article has given me an understanding of “why Xi & Trump are behaving the way they are”. My first job in life was to work in Contract Notes Department @ A.C. Goode & Co. 1968. The so called Poseidon boom. A love for investing in shares has never dimmed and in most cases profitable. Over the past three years I have been researching for shares that are, or could be a takeover target for quite obviously the reason of increased value of the shares or a pecuniary gain. I have made up five rules that guide me. These have been applied to two sections of the market, food and drugs + one other one off. The success stories so far have been Patties Foods PFL, Glencross, GXL and Fantastic Furniture. The share that has me very interested at the moment is Sigma. Rules: 1/. It has a healthy financial position. 2/. The share price has a history of being 100% + higher. 3/. The current price if a takeover were it to be offered gives the opportunity so that to offer 100% + to the price, it is going to be well worth it. Room to do it but only paying what the shares are really worth. 4/. Units & numbers of investors wanting shares has over the past six weeks far out weighed sellers. This same situation happened with the afore mentioned Companies. 5/. BTC has since their offer invested in a block of shares as has Vanguard. 5%+. Not fools. At the current price plus it is a healthy takeover target. Bonuses: It has been a takeover target by BTC It has sorted out Chemist Wharehouse situation which was costing it a lot of money. A lot of people thought this was a negative. Also they have gone looking for markets. Such as Hospital Pharmacies. The shareholders meeting is the 5th September. This coming week. So we shall see if more light is shed on the companies position. Any thoughts Alan. Once again thanks for you article. One of the best I have ever read. With apologies to Gaurav signed as my accountant refers to me….. Guru Winnie. - Submitted by Winston Anderson
