Tesco and VW JV (Pod Point) The Telegraph EDF buys electric car charging firm EDF has bought one of Britain's biggest electric vehicle charging companies in the latest foray by an energy company into renewables. It’s a done deal.
Tesco and VW JV (Pod Point) "Majority shareholders which hold more than 50 per cent of capital in Pod Point are understood to be willing “in principle” to sell their shares to EDF, as part of a deal that would value the firm at around £110m. If the deal proceeds it would see EDF acquire all of Pod Point’s shares. " This feels likely to go ahead. Mildly disappointing x 2.15 return. – 7 Feb 20 EDF charges up £110m Pod Point bid Offer would support French-owned utility's ambitions of becoming leading player in e-mobility in the UK Unraveling the tax benefit might end up being a pain. Proceeds will go back in Elfin Purse (now), litigation financing (soon) and cash holding for an upcoming pre-emption round (next week). DL
So, Ripley! “Imo the poster was almost certainly a man (maybe men) from one of the many Rusky troll farms infesting the internet.” Originally he was Tim someone or other( many years ago). He lived in the Uk (Essex if I remember right) until he lost heavily in a crash and had to sell up. He had to move to Spain and lived in a goat keepers shack up a mountain somewhere. Since then he has been desperately hoping for other investors to suffer the same fate… which he why he is forever predicting disaster!
So, Ripley! Ripley94: He sent loads of emails over about two months ten per day maybe then disappeared just before Christmas. I just did not have time to look at all of it wasn’t sure what to make of it. I also do not like judging people but always want to try to understand them . Like investing trying to hard to do that might send one mad . Hi Ripley, Thanks. I think it’s a healthy attitude to have & similar to mine. Indeed, a complex character, quite clever, who knows more than the average guy about market operations. The 10 emails daily doesn’t surprise me & to each their own. But whereas I’d rather trade accordingly & let my trading do my talking (as I do on these BBs, warts & all), there are some people who like the sound of their own voice or comments a bit too much for my inclinations. He’d happily talk markets with anyone well into the early hours. That’s fine for those so inclined. But for me the point of markets is a bit more specific: ie. try to make money, then enjoy my life away from them. Not always easy. OT: Not that I’ve enjoyed last week. I kept most of my emotions in check, but I was beyond disappointed by the outcome of the GE, at least the scale of it, & I’m sure that was manifest in me being more brusque than usual in my comment s last week. But then one collects oneself & moves on. I try to let disappointing things go & always look to the future. Life’s too short for it to be otherwise. - Regards & GL.
So, Ripley! 10 emails a day sounds like the same type of obsessive behaviour he displayed on these message boards. Cheers, Frog
So, Ripley! HI jackdawsson I actually swapped email address with last call this time last year. He was very much a chart man explained he once had a sort of Master who he worked for who took no prisoners and he learned so much from. The charts would have pink clouds on them which indicated Asian buying . Very detailed . He was Into options and the like. I would of found it interesting to meet up in person to see what i made of him . We did discus that. From the Newcastle area he claimed . But was often in London. He sent loads of emails over about two months ten per day maybe then disappeared just before Christmas. I just did not have time to look at all of it wasn’t sure what to make of it. I also do not like judging people but always want to try to understand them . Like investing trying to hard to do that might send one mad .
So, Ripley! Ripley94: Last Call was not an ordinary Pi . Ripley, A number of posters on LSE say that Last Call is as active as ever, but now on ADVFN BBs. Not least on VOD’s BB. Apparently he’s now using the alias Sentimentrules. One thing I’ll say for him, his sheer volume of posts almost beggars belief. I don’t like judging people on any grounds, but I struggle to imagine what he gets out of it. Only he knows that for sure. Or at least one hopes so & that it’s not a form of compulsion. - Cheers.
So, Ripley! Last Call was not an ordinary Pi .
So, Ripley! At the time SR explained that when the platform changed s/he couldn’t reuse HUproar and had to adopt a new avatar. Other problematic posters who have been banned have popped up under new names. An example is our old friend Broadmoor 1 who currently posts (with restrictions) as Grey Carpet having previously used a number of other IDs. Then there was Last Call who also kept being banned and then popping up with new IDs. He was a real nuisance. Cheers, Frog
So, Ripley! “Hardcore Uproar AKA Sara Racano was a genuine poster .” Hi frog … if that is the case . Why post under different names , what is the point ?
So, Ripley! I doubt that Russian troll farms would bother with a low volume chatboard like this. I have no doubt that Hardcore Uproar AKA Sara Racano was a genuine poster but one who had rather warped RW views and who had little ability to discriminate between conspiracy theory and reality. The simple fact is that s/he rightly got banned for far right racist posts referencing Enoch Powell and white supremacist ideology. No loss to the rest of us. Frog in a tree
So, Ripley! El_Kel Its not always easy to see who is a genuine poster . Well done all who highlighted this one , i suspected a couple on the TUNG board some time back . Flush them out .
So, Ripley! DaveHughes: SR aka Hardcore Uproar … etc etc, just wait for the next reincarnation! Imo the poster was almost certainly a man (maybe men) from one of the many Rusky troll farms infesting the internet. He/they will be doubtless be back if these boards show any sign of life. I could never understand why anyone could be bothered to waste their time interacting with those trolls and their rabid posts.
So, Ripley! SR ana Hardcore Uproar … etc etc, just wait for the next reincarnation!
So, Ripley! Ripley94: Thank you Jack for going to the trouble to explain that. I wish you a happy Christmas. Ripley, Thanks & you’re welcome. I likewise extend my very best wishes to you & all. It’s been a difficult year at times for most of us, so here’s to a more prosperous 2020! Well done also on following your own counsel with holding on to a few stocks when they were struggling, to now see some VG gains. Well deserved. - All the best!
