Numis ups target price for Berkeley Energy shares from 40p to 100p - you what?

I know that the news from Salamanca last week was big but this big? Big enough for Numis to up its target price for shares in Berkeley Energy (BKY) from 40p to 100p? The shares are now 26.5p? Really?

I think the shares are cheap but my target price is only 36p. But then I am not paid to act as corporate broker to this company. Numis is. The note is worth a read but 100p? Numis is surely 'avin' a bubble.
