Although Alien Metals (UFO) main claim to fame when it first came to the stock market was its quirky ticker code, things are starting to get serious both in terms of its mining portfolio and the recent share price rise. This has put the market cap at £50m plus, something which can not only attract some serious institutional investors, but allow the company to expand its footprint even beyond the present Mexico and Australian hubs. The latest rise of 50% for the stock has the shares on 1.8p.
Perhaps one of the few stocks which can currently hold a candle to that of the meteoric rise of Alien Metals is Orosur Mining (OMI). Here the shares have risen almost vertically from 5p at the turn of the month to 33p now. The fundamentals behind the rally were underlined in the wake of fully year results for 2020. The company said that during the year ending May 31 2020, its focus has been on continuing its plan to restructure the business, advancing the Anza project in Colombia with regular payments from Newmont Colombia, and finding a solution to its assets in Uruguay for its shareholders.

Perhaps the brightest light in the update was the revelation that sales momentum continued even after competitor bricks and mortar outlets came back out of lockdown. AO World founder John Roberts thanked “AOers” for working “tirelessly” over the period and said,” our mums would be proud of what the AO team is achieving. The stock closed at 302.5p – a five year high, making shareholders as proud as their mothers.

This was carried out at 2.35p, versus the mid price close of 2.5p.
Shares of punters favourite Greatland Gold (GGP) were on the front foot again, as the stock continues to underline the presence of strong chart support at and just under 20p.
