This stock has been bouncing back and forth from the early 70's to the late 80's for the past couple of months.

What will it take for it to break through $1?

Re: OXR

A MIRACLE!
It sure feels like that. I've been in and out of it a couple of times recently without much success.

I definitely feel that OXR is a good long term prospect. At the moment it just seems a bit bogged down.

Re: OXR

Hey Joe,

I saw a headline on Monday (30Aug) in the AFR (finreview) that OXR had been downgraded by brokers. Couldn't read it all but worth a look.

Looks like it's safe to accumulate at around 70c. Upside will probably kick in once people flow back into metals and energy in the next month or so. It's been quiet for the last two months for those sectors- well, for the stocks I've watched anyway!

Re: OXR

From its chart, it looks to me like it peaked in Nov/Dec last year and is now gradually trending downwards.

Cheers,
GP

Re: OXR

Hi Folks,

Just wrote a few paras but lost it! (got logged out for some reason). So here's a summary:

IMO, Oxiana is highly leveraged to the gold price (Just compare graphs).
I don't see it falling below 70c support in the near term but I'm waiting for the trend to reverse or at least consolidate before buying in.
I reckon $1 will fall before long, but maybe in a few months. Just have to wait for the next rally in gold.
Gold is heading south again (see thread on gold) but will pick up and run further than oil did this year, IMO.
Haven't had time to check out the financial review article on the OXR downgrade yet.
(these are just my views (not recommendations) and I am most likely wrong- considering some of my recent trades- but the gold/OXR charts are worth comparing)

good luck!

Re: OXR

Redwing,
Yep, that was probably what led to the downgrade (couldn't find the article I referred to earlier on the downgrade- maybe I saw it somewhwere else). Always an opportunity when it's going down, just have to wait for the reversal.

Come to think of it the price may not find its way down to 70c if gold bounces up again. But maybe the recent report may still weigh on the stock, I mentioned 70c as a psychological level since there isn't any obvious support below 75c.

Re: OXR

Okay, I reckon $1 next stop for OXR, gold rising has given it a big legup and the brokers are thumbs up on it again. It didn't fall as far as I expected and the bad report is now history. Full steam ahead as OXR has broken the downtrend.

Re: OXR

All the announcement says is that OXR and MNR have both halted trading pending some announcement. Trading to resume either on Wednesday or after the announcement is made.

No idea what the announcement might be.

Re: OXR

Been a while since this thread has seen some action so I thought I'd bring it back to life. OXR is perpetually on my watchlist as it has been a reliable range trading stock.

When GP last posted eight months ago OXR was trading around the $1 mark, it closed today at $0.91, up 2 cents. Market cap. currently around $1.15 billion.

Any views on this one particularly in view of their recent acquisition of the Golden Grove mine from Newmont? What has been keeping it down? :confused:

Re: OXR

I own this stock.
I think it is still undervalued.
Why is it down? Well the price has risen substantially and profits are being taken. Also it is being valued at a two years timeframe.

I believe profits will be higher than brokers forecasts and will rise further come the third year.

The takeover is midly positive assuming metal prices stay high. I think they will.

Yep, sure is trading in a band, in fact the first post by Joe mentioned that. We are again seeing it fall back to the bottom end of the range and then recover again to be mid channel. Here's the chart, slightly slanting lower support level or you could draw a broad horizontal line around 80c, issue then is stop level as it has dipped toward the mid 70's.

I guess medium term we may see some consolidation and then a powerful breakout through resistance. BUT that's not on the chart yet so it could just as easily fall through support. High turnover in the last year. My money is on ranging for a few months.

Re: OXR

Message from the MD

"In respone to rumours in today's press concerning a potential takeover offer for Oxiana by Xstrata,Oxiana advises that it has had no contact from Xstrata and is not aware of a pending bid from that Company"

Does anyone have any details?

Re: OXR

I've had these from 10c levels but sure enough everytime I sell some they end up going for a run (sold at 98c this time)

Re: OXR

Won't know for sure for a few days, but could be some buying ahead of takeover offer
Personally I don't think thats it, more likely presentation at Diggers and Dealers got some interest from overseas players.
Finanlly seeing the true value emerge

Still kicking myself for selling at 98c
:mad:

Yeah, I agree, hard to know when a takeover is on, so many candidates out there. And we don't know what exactly xtrata is after. Let's see if there is a pullback after today's rise to an all time high.

I have not read this stock well at all. Yet another pattern to learn from for me.

Tech, this must be on your scans by now for sure.
