“A lot of companies aren’t meeting expectations and they’re getting hammered to the downside,” he explains in the latest London Finance Show.

“If you’re a value investor then maybe there are opportunities there, once they’ve had the sell-off, to start to accumulate these positions.”

Elsewhere, Harrison discusses: Rio Tinto’s £28mln fine from the FCA; AIM-listed Cloudcall’s placing; currency markets; Bernstein’s downgrade of Compass Group; and the Dow Jones’ record-breaking run.

Zak Mir tips Faroe Petroleum shares to re-test 2017 highs Technical analyst Zak Mir is tipping the Faroe Petroleum plc (LON:FPM) share price to re-test its 2017 highs and head towards the 110p mark.

“[Shares] hit as high as 100p by February but they’ve come back since then [but] it looks like we’re still in an uptrend from the beginning of last year,” explains Mir in the latest Proactive Investors Bulletin Board.

“The floor of this channel [is] at 85p and really while we’re above that we should hopefully get a re-test of the best levels of this year-to-date up to £1.10.”

‘Exciting’ EVR Holdings could add 60% in two months Technical analyst Zak Mir tells the Proactive Investors Bulletin Board that virtual reality specialist EVR Holdings PLC (LON:EVRH) can add 60% to its share price over the coming two or three months.

“The floor of the [rising] channel is currently running towards 9p and at least while we’re above that we could hit the top of the September trench channel of 16p over the next couple of months,” Mir explains.

“At this stage, only back below the 50-day moving average of 7.3p currently would only begin to suggest there was a delay in the upside scenario.”

Kodal Minerals to re-test 0.5p level as long as it stays above this number Technical analyst Zak Mir reckons the Kodal Minerals PLC (LON:KOD) share price can head back up to its recent highs of 0.5p and above in the coming months.

“Shares have surged through the 0.2p level to start 2017 [and there is] likely support back towards the 0.2p to 0.5p range,” he explains.

“Only back below 0.2p really delaying the bull argument and a potential re-test of the 0.5p+ zone.”

Despite cautious outlook, Zak Mir tips Thomas Cook to soar towards £1 Despite the cautious outlook from Thomas Cook Group PLC (LON:TCG) in yesterday’s first quarter results, Zak Mir reckons shares in the travel operator could still head towards the £1 zone in the coming weeks.

“The summer was really the low point for the stock breaking back above the 50-day moving average in August and it’s been guided by that line ever since,” Mir explains in the latest Proactive Investors Bulletin Board segment.

“[The stock is] in a rising trend channel from June with the top of the channel heading towards 100p and that’s the target on a technical basis while we hold above the floor of the channel towards the 80p level.”

SSE has support and can power 10% higher British energy supplier SSE plc (LON:SSE) saw its share price dip following an underwhelming half-year report at the start of the month, but could it be ready to kick on from here?

Technical analyst Zak Mir certainly thinks so, and is tipping the stock to add the best part of £2 to its price over the next couple of months.

“You can see that the shares have been sideways in a range between 1350p and 1650p. At the moment we’ve bounced a support line from February at 1450p,” he explains in the latest segment of the TIP TV Proactive Investors Bulletin Board series.

“One would be looking for recovery towards that 1650p range.”

Alba Mineral Resources in ‘recovery mode’ which could see it add 30% Shares in Alba Mineral Resources PLC (LON:ALBA) have been on the rise since the summer and could add another 30% in the coming weeks and months, according to Zak ‘King of Charts’ Mir.

“At the moment it looks like Alba is in recovery mode,” Mir explains in the latest segment of the Proactive Investors TIP TV Bulletin Board series.

“We’ve had a golden cross buy signal for the shares between the 50-day and 200-day moving averages earlier in November… [which] is normally a longer-term buy signal.”

A golden cross is generally viewed as a bullish sign and is when a stock’s short-term moving average breaks above the long-term moving average.

Mir reckons the junior explorer could now be set to build on its recent rally by adding another 0.1p or so.

“The target there at the top of that June channel is up to 0.45p and that’s valid while there’s no break back below the 200-day moving average.”

Greene King share price dip bottoming out, so time to go long Greene King PLC’s (LON:GNK) share price could be set to stop its recent, with Zak Mir expecting the stock to bottom out soon and then take a turn for the better.

“As far as the technicals are concerned, cautiously buying towards the 700p level,” Mir explains in the latest segment of the TIP TV Proactive Investors Bulletin Board.

He does add that it might be worth waiting until after the brewery’s interim results which are due out this Wednesday (30 November).

“Is there much incentive to go long over the shares ahead of such a binary type of result?,” Mir asks.

“They could be full of good cheer or they could be full of misery, so it’s probably worth waiting on that.”

On a separate but related issue, Mir bemoaned the potential 30p hike in beer prices after pub bosses warned inflation and soaring business costs they could force to up the price of a pint.

“It’s ridiculous. What, have you got to be a millionaire to go to the pub now?”

The Gold Cup: Which horse should you be backing? There are a couple of big races this weekend, starting with the Hennessey Gold Cup at Newbury on Saturday at 15.10.

Mark ‘The Couch’ Winstanley reckons punters should have a flutter on Native River which is around the 5/1 mark with most bookmakers.

“This horse is a second season chaser and it ran over hurdles the other day to preserve a nice handicap mark, so it’ll do for me,” The Couch says.

“He’s older than Arsene Wenger I’m afraid, and like him, he’s not going to win anything this year.”

Onto the next race which immediately follows the Gold Cup, the 3.45 at Newbury and The Couch thinks favourite Grey Gold will romp to victory.

“It won the race last year on its first time up from marker 147.

“It runs in the same race this year off marker 149. You don’t have to have been to a public school to realise it’s been laid out for this, and I think it’ll take world of beating.”

The Battle of the Bridge: What the bookies think The big game this week is of the course the Chelsea vs Tottenham in the ‘Battle of the Bridge’, which got its name following the fiery encounter between the two sides back in May.

Twelve cards were dished out in that match which ended in a 2-2 draw, and the sensible money might be on a similar event this time around.

Ladbrokes' Alex Odonohue says: “We’re 9/4 that a red card gets shown in this game. Spurs are 9/2 to have a player sent off, with Chelsea 6/1, so it’s certainly going to be pretty tasty.”

In terms of who might win, Odonohue adds that Chelsea are the clear favourites at 8/11, with Spurs further adrift at 4/1.
