  1. Is it possible to add return on total assets (ROA) and dividend cover ratio to the Stocks Screener?
  2. Investegate: Offer for Finablr Limited No word on the price, but presumably it will only be a notional amount. Also presumably the stock will delist and this situation will apply: https://www.ig.com/uk/help-and-support/spread-betting-and-cfds/market-details/what-happens-if-the-stock-i-am-trading-delists
  3. Intu appears to have unknown availability of borrowing for short selling on IG. Does that imply an increased risk of a short squeeze?
  4. DFS has convinced shareholders that raising some more equity will fix it, but its balance sheet looks worse than ever. FT Alphaville: Markets Now (Registration but not subscription required.) DFS Interim Results FY2020 (pdf)
  5. The announcement of the merger collapse was on 16th March and the lockdown was on 20th March.
  6. LSL Property Services announced on 16th March that it would not be merging with Countrywide. Its balance sheet looks terrible with net assets of £141m including goodwill of £160m and a Current Ratio of less than 1. Since then it has been affected by the lockdown as well, but somehow today the share price is back to a pre-lockdown level. I'm short at 177.
  7. Nothing, Anglo American bought them from you for 5.5 p each.
  8. Countrywide's merger with also failing LSL Property Services has fallen through Countrywide's market value has been in freefall for months, which it attempted to mask with a share consolidation in December 2019. Now this merger has fallen through I'm short and I think Covid-19 will push the price down significantly in the next few weeks.
  9. and the shares are suspended.
  10. https://investors.finablr.com/en/reports-and-releases/regulatory-news/ I think this is the endgame.
  11. Amigo's founder and controlling shareholder says Amigo is committing slow-motion suicide in his blog. FT Alphaville has more. I think if Amigo was going to seek a judicial review of the Financial Ombudsman Service's guidance on irresponsible lending then it would have done so by now. It looks like insolvency is coming.
  12. Intu receives mention in today’s FT Alphaville (registration but not subscription required). From intu's update on strategy to fix the balance sheet: The only "alternative capital structures" I can think of involve giving creditors more control than current shareholders. Intu's going to keep selling off what assets it can. Effectively it is doing what would happen if it went into administration.
  13. The vote went through and Sirius receives another mention in today’s FT Alphaville (registration but not subscription required). Looking at another share dealing forum there seem to be some Sirius shareholders who gambled far more than they could afford to lose.
