The outlook is looking brighter for Synthomer

Thursday 12 Sep 2019

Chemicals firm Synthomer ( SYNT ) looks very tempting at the current price following a big sell-off over the past year.

Ted Baker shares are just too cheap to ignore

Thursday 22 Aug 2019

We think you should buy lately-unloved global lifestyle brand Ted Baker ( TED ) at 912p. This isn’t a trade for the faint of heart as the current valuation is discounting that already-downgraded profit estimates may yet be missed, but Shares still has faith in the strength of the Ted Baker brand...

Thursday 22 Aug 2019

Want to buy a best-in-class company while market sentiment is poor? Now’s your chance with Chilean copper miner Antofagasta ( ANTO ) .

Ideagen is a structural growth story with plenty of opportunity

Thursday 15 Aug 2019

If the 10-year run of global economic expansion really is winding down then it makes sense for investors to look for structural growth drivers and companies capable of pulling those levers even in a slowing global economy. We believe that Ideagen ( IDEA:AIM ) is just the sort of stable growth...

Tate & Lyle has got the right ingredients for growth
