Thanks I also added Santova as it seems like it has had solid results year after year. Pallinghurst was bought at around R 3 so not too bad in the last year I think now that Platinum is heading up it will do even better with Sedibelo Platinum and their Gemfields and Iron operations now getting good prices.
Just as a matter of interest I sold out of Pallinghurst at R 3.14 - but this was in 2011 thus why I say they have done very little over the years

Agreed Pallinghurst was pretty meh

Tawana, waiting in anticipation!!!

"Tawana and AMAL are in the advanced stages of completing a feasibility study with off-take pricing, metallurgical and process engineering aspects of the study completed, and the mining engineering and infrastructure capital costs nearing completion. The results of the study are expected to be released within two weeks."

So looks like we are just waiting for the mining engineering and infrastructure capital costs to be completed. I think Primero has completed their bit of the feasibility study.

Go to Moneyweb's site and have a look at the small cap picks that were punted by Keith McLauchlan at the Money Expo on Saturday. I have known Keith and have interacted with him on purely an investor level and do not follow his picks like a slave and he will admit that he has got some wrong over the years - so read and make your own determination

Thanks. I have seen his stocks in his portfolio and some are disasters and some ok but overall I think his overall returns are not that great. I do however also like Santova and 1 or 2 other picks.

Of his punts I only hold Santova but it is also a volatile share

Hi all

Any thoughts on COMAIR?

With their fleet grounded due to COVID it is obviously not a great time, but with SAA likely liquidation and very low oil prices is this not a good long term value pick*?
They have also derecognised the legal claim from SAA so that has washed through. They are changing technical servicing to Lufthansa from SAA which they expected to result in double costs for at least a year...but if SAA is liquidated that additional cost may fall away. My only concern is their cash position which could be larger.

*I have a long position in COMAIR but just interested in other opinions.

I recently bought a fair number of Comair shares - they may benefit from SAA's malaise, but, this will have to be a longer term shareholding as I believe it could take them 3 - 5 years to get back to current levels

I think they are now in Business Rescue...

They are indeed in Business Rescue - I've been buying more shares (even today prior to BR) and now hold 33,000 shares.
As posted previously I'm holding for the long term - my averaged price is R 1.42 but what ay happen with SAA could become a game changer for Comair or I could lose quite a bit of money

Too risky for me. Hope they come back from the brink as they are quite well managed. If they could get a few of the regional SAA/SAX routes, they could do very well.
