@Captain_Chaza - @barney does this on a volunteer basis for the benefit of those who visit ASF.

Thanks @Joe Blow . I appreciate your support. I do now understand better what the Captain (@Captain_Chaza) was eluding to with his previous posts, so no problem from my end.

The purpose of the Thread was always meant to present a portion of data which might entice ASF "surfers" to re-visit the site if the Small Cap space is of interest. I am more than happy to try and present the data in a better way if it is useful, and happy to accept advice opinions on how to do that.:cat:

Cheers and I hope everything is ticking along with yourself Joe.

All good here @barney. Hope you are fine also.

Regarding my previous post, it bothers me when I see the volunteer work of others criticised rather than appreciation being shown. Suggestions are always good, but they should be constructive. Thanks again for your efforts. I know this thread is appreciated by many.

As mentioned above, the List is post CLOSE (plus at least 20 minutes so data is complete) "Top Stocks" only; No Volume List.

Worth noting again that the data/Volumes on the Top Stocks is also from the ASX only, so no Chi-X Volume. I have found when I have checked the Chi-X in the past, the "relative" Volume between the ASX is similar percentage with or without Chi-X:bookworm:.

as a person who does not ( intentionally ) trade i see your posts as indications of what might be interesting to research further ( say , over the weekend ), sadly the days of 'reverse take-overs seem to be over ( when such indications might have been extremely useful )

cheers and thanks for the time and effort

Cheers to you also @divs4ever ... and thanks for the input:cool:

Speaking of "take-over" targets, you and many others are way more in tune with larger cap Stocks than I will ever be.

Do you have any idea why NIB Stock (NHF) has been so strong in the current climate?

My wife owns a few NHF and I semi-jokingly suggested that they may be a take-over target given their recent performance.

I remember many years back, I predicted a couple of takeovers based on price action alone (Repco was one I think, from memory)

I know little about NHF, but I am curious, is it a possible take over target?? And who would be the suitor?:shifty:

I agree Captain ..... picking one of these little fellas is generally a very sparse and "lonely" exercise:)

As a fellow sailor could I perhaps liken it to Australia 2 winning the America's Cup back in 1983 (seems like a couple of years ago!)

I wonder what odds we could have gotten on Aus 2 prior to the competition, and even duringo_O

Its easy to cull the wanna-be Spec's most of the time, and it only takes a couple of minutes

Occasionally, something will pop up which defies the norm, and/or logic, lol.

If I had to state one "indicator" which I believe makes a Spec worth researching,

It is a "healthy" Cash to Market Cap ratio.

It is rare for a Spec to be "cash positive", but it does happen, and it is probably my major yeah/nah decision on whether to research further.


Back when I started the Thread, I was still actively looking for Stocks which may have fitted the mold so to speak.

I was buying VML back when it had more cash on hand than its total Market Cap, plus there have been a couple of other good performers over time.

If the Lists promote research which finds 1 "good" Spec stock per year, or even every 2 years (assuming punters are much younger than me and can afford even more patience, lol)

Then, it will/could/can be a potentially valuable exercise.

Cheers.:)

i have avoided health insurance stocks , tackling the exposure from the super fund ( providers ) and trust fund ( providers ) , who basically resell health insurance as a bolt-on . and PFP ( for when the health system fails the patient )

however since the ( international ) pension funds are picking the cream of the utilities and infrastructure companies ( stocks like AST , SKI , SYD , arguably CWN if you look at it as a money laundromat ) .. NHF as a take-over target becomes possible , but who will be the predator , the ACCC will probably frown on MPL throwing in an offer , MQG a tiny chance ( at least MQG understands the risk v. investment game ) , now Buffet understands the insurance/investment game as well , but are the numbers attractive ??

IAG and QBE are probably neck deep in distractions , and SUN looks to be restructuring , so i would argue a lower chance currently

on the left-field side would NHF become the predator and try to expand during wider weakness , there are some smaller health-related companies out there

NB Volume Stocks are now listed from high to low Market Cap, so "Small Cap" punters can disregard the Stocks at the top of the list.:wheniwasaboy:

What is the point of watching TLS win the highest volume every day and not make a move
I would think it would be best to Sort by highest % move down
and I can promise you we will see the last of TLS on your tables
Just My Opinion LOL!
Bit cruel on poor old Telstra there Captain, lol
Actually the big-T has been performing really well since that swing low back on 14th June.

Interestingly there was a Volume spike on the 14th 15th 16th and 17th June ... and another above V day today on a wider range bar

Often an indicator that reducing one's holding might soon be a consideration as @divs4ever mentioned a few posts back. :wheniwasaboy:

If TLS is the best you can do with your money and you are happy then hold on
I would find it BORING
and probably fall asleep and miss all the warning indicators

Agree CC ........ Haven't looked at TLS for the last 10 years until you mentioned them.

Personally I am far more drawn to a minnow Spec with some reasonable cash in the bank,

And a couple of "deposits" with potential. :bookworm:

@greggles has sparked my interest in CAZ over the last couple of days. I now watch with interest ;)

Interesting that TLS (even with high Volume today) did not make the VOLUME LIST @Captain_Chaza :wideyed:

You obviously have a trading influence we should all perhaps be aware of ;)


TBH, the algorithm of this particular site does come into question when TLS (and many others) often makes the LIST of the "small-caps" :confused:

Anyway, all that is out of my control, but the bottom line is

Always check/confirm whatever data you are using to make Trading decisions; then double check!!

YES! You have got it right
In the days of 2003+++ ++on the "Incredible Charts"Forum
I was accused of having a seat on the board of every company I recommended because I had "Insider Information"

This was not True then and has never been True

I am just a Rich Technical Analyst without a seat on any board
