No fanfare as crown seized on the quiet

A QUEEN'S visit doesn't draw the crowds like it used to. Gone are the days when we all bought bunting and lined the streets 10-deep to watch her royally wave by, secretly wishing she might drop around for tea so we could finally use the good china.

A QUEEN'S visit doesn't draw the crowds like it used to. Gone are the days when we all bought bunting and lined the streets 10-deep to watch her royally wave by, secretly wishing she might drop around for tea so we could finally use the good china.

While commemorative plate makers are wishing she had brought her grandson and his new wife, the market couldn't even manage a royal rally.

Our share racers didn't take much notice, and nor should they, but in this, our final week of this very short but tightly paced race, a few of them have slipped backwards.

Varun Sablok will be very happy to have finished first, proving that the little upset last week, in which Robert Pearlman momentarily took the top spot, was just that - a moment.

Metgasco is still Robert's darling, and the top gaining stock of all our share racers picks, but it wasn't giving as much love as last week, down $1000 off its peak. Seems you can have too much of a good thing.

Shhhhhh.

It's a competitor so we probably shouldn't talk about it much but Kerry Stokes's Seven West Media had a stellar week.

Turns out it could refinance its debt after all. Who knew? Well Kerry, probably.

It wasn't the only media company that competes with this one in the Dartboard's bunch of stocks either. But it was was the only good thing for the Dartboard this time, which finished dead last.

God save the Queen!
