  1. Someone sold 1.3 million Thomas Cook today, looks like a big holder is profit taking (or salvaging what they can!)

  2. Any views on Drax Power (DRX)? I know coal isn’t very fashionable at present, but it is “too big to fail” with 7% of UK electricity generation, and seems to be doing well under a woman CEO.

  3. Do you have any views on AIM listed Niche Group, who’s share are currently suspended. When are we likely to hear news regarding the company moving forward and the position regarding share price etc?


  4. The Share Centre

    We currently do not have a comment on Niche Group. We know they are in the process of acquiring business so for AIM rules have to be suspended. However Niche Group say they will provide more news shortly.
