Scotgold Resources (LSE:SGZ), gonna need a bigger hole…

#Gold #SP500

Regular readers will know of our utter distaste for negative share splits, price movements designed to make a share sound more respectable. Often, for the longer term, whatever culture permeated a company, causing any initial share split, remains, creating the same situation again. Scotgold in Tyndrum, guilty of 100:1 surgery in 2017, saw their share price boost from around 0.4p up to a pretend 40p in a blink.

The manoeuvre, we’ll take 100 of your shares and give you a brand new single shiny one back, rarely seems to work out for the longer term, victims from prior to the share split being the ones who obviously pay. For instance, folk from 2012 “only” need see Scotgold move above 6 quid until they find themselves in profit. Glancing at the chart below, it’s easy to suspect Scotgold may soon consider yet another share split as the immediate future looks pretty vile.

Movement next below 11.5p looks very capable of a trip down to 8.5p next, perhaps with a bounce. Our secondary, if such a level breaks, works out at just 4p, a price level below which we cannot calculate as every target gets prefaced with a minus sign.

In the event any miracles are planned (it is nearly Easter) apparently the share price only needs exceed 15.5 to make an attempt at 18 next with our secondary, if bettered, at 22p (which may be 25p, thanks to the market gapping the price down. Unfortunately, this feels like it has similar quality to a dead cat bounce, none of the targets coming close to 32p, above which the market would be forced to concede it was all a dreadful mistake.

We fear, despite Gold prices being at record high levels, Scotlands Gold miner intends drill down to the 4p level and hopefully shall discover an excuse for the market to gap the share price up substantially. Currently we’re lacking optimism, suspecting the market doesn’t inflict a minus 63% day without good reason. Perhaps the Earnings Report due later this week shall contain good news…

SUCCESS above means both FAST & SLOW targets were met. ‘CESS means just the FAST target met and probably the next time it is exceeded, movement to the SLOW target shall commence.

UPDATE. We often give an initial and a secondary price. If the initial is exceeded, we still expect it to fall back but the next time the initial is bettered, the price should continue to the secondary. The converse it true with price drops.
