AIM round-up: Blue Star Capital, MediaZest, Nightcap


London’s AIM Index has seen another relatively uninspiring session with the market sitting in a very tight range, reaching the bell down by less than one point at 1226.68. Tomorrow’s interest rate decision from the Bank of England and the surrounding uncertainty as to how this will play out could inject some fresh volatility here.

  • Blue Star Capital +44%
  • MediaZest +24%
  • Nightcap +21%
  • Inspirit Energy -21%
  • Enwell Energy -12%

Blue Star Capital LON:BLU had another strong day, again coming in at the top of the board having added a further 44%. This is simply the overhang of yesterday’s trade where the stock rallied after a positive update from a portfolio company.

MediaZest LON:MDZ also returned to our radar, adding 24% today However there’s no news to support the gains and with the £2m stock being quoted on a spread of almost 10%, it’s difficult to read anything at all into this.

A notable mention for Nightcap LON:NGHT who issued a bullish trading update today, with the company noting results for the full year to next July will now be significantly ahead of current market expectations. Sales for Q1 were 68% ahead of the 2019 pre-COVID comparator. Shares added 21% by 4.30pm.

Inspirit Energy Holdings LON:INSP is the day’s worst performer, off 21% at the bell. Shares saw some heady gains earlier in the week leading management to publish an operational update after the close last night. The key point here was arguably the line that there was nothing to justify the gains, with the rest of the update being rather anodyne. Today’s reversion put shares back at levels seen yesterday morning.

Enwell Energy LON:ENW was also left languishing, down 12% at the close. There’s not much news out and thin trading doesn’t really help matters, but there are a number of reasons being touted as to why invetsors may be cautious over the stock. One to watch.
