    IGas and the Dart Takeover – were Dart Shareholders Duped? How can Andrew Austin survive this?

    I have been looking in detail at the takeover by IGas (IGAS) of Aussie-based Dart Energy over the summer of this year - an all-paper deal which, at time of announcement, offered a substantial premium to the prevailing share price of Dart. Since the deal was first agreed by the two Boards, Igas’ share price has fallen substantially to leave former Dart shareholders nursing hefty losses. But there are skeletons in the closet:

    Government to Resume Sale Of Lloyds

    Fresh from its successful pass of the stress test more of Lloyds (LLOY) is going to be sold off by the UK government. As I’ve mentioned, the UK government currently owns around 24% of Lloyds Banking Group, but this figure could be reduced to around 20%.

    New World Oil & Gas; another laughable bogus ramp perpetrated through DirectorsTalk.com

    Over the last few days, we’ve witnessed one of the most laughable bogus stock ramps of the year. Using DirectorsTalk.com and a little known website called www.smallcapnetwork.com, certain unidentified parties are distributing wildly misleading “research” about my old favourite, New World Oil & Gas (NEW), in a classic a pump and dump. Unfortunately, the New World pump and dump isn’t the first time we have come across this particular operation and there are now serious questions about what DirectorsTalk.com is up to.

    Xaar – forecasts increased, but the picture bright enough to suggest the shares a buy?

    Following a recent more positive trading update from digital inkjet printing technology company, Xaar plc (XAR), researcher Edison has upgraded its (previously vastly reduced) earnings forecasts for 2014 and concluded that “the rating does not look demanding given the growth potential, IP and cash generation”.

    ValiRx – I just have to crow

    On December 5, I was lambasted by Bulletin Board Morons for being beastly to ValiRX (VAL) – the 0.285p in the middle (down by 98% under current management). Apparently I did not understand the science.

    Back by popular demand – the Quindell Bulletin Board Moron of the Week (7) Competition

    Today Quindell (QPP) has admitted that it can only continue to trade because its banks have not (yet) pulled its overdraft. It had flagged up that mammoth writedowns of revenue unwisely recognised which was bogus and of goodwill is on the way. It has not explained why it bought a company from a convicted Nigerian fraudster for £30 million. And some folks think this is good news. For example…

    And now at 32p the Quindell Bulletin Board Moron of the day (DMajor) thinks smearing me helps

    Quenron (QPP) shares are now down to 32p. 0p or suspension or both looms and is coming soon. Even the dumbest fuck in the universe must understand that. But no, Tom Dobell at M&G and the posters on the LSE Asylum just reckon it is corporate governance or in the case of the latter it is all down to me. Today’s moron DMajor explains Quenron’s share price collapse by posting six sentences containing three howling spelling mistakes or grammatical errors and NINE lies about me.

    How to play the Oil Price Slide on AIM

    The Oil price slide throws up some interesting opportunities on the AIM market. I have shorted a basket of five stocks on the basis that if it continues to fall or stays at these levels they will get into serious financial difficulty very rapidly.  If it rallies the upside is hopefully limited by management practices that are unlikely to reward shareholders.

    Why the FCA is a chocolate teapot when it comes to AIM: it is an unkown unknown

    We have been saying for a considerable time here on Shareprophets that the authorities who are supposed to regulate and deal with bad behaviour on the AIM Casino are just a bunch of chocolate teapots. Complaint after complaint has met with absolutely no action being taken. Clearly demonstrated frauds, rule breaches, market abuses and so on have been handed to the authorities on a plate and yet the perpetrators are still out there operating on the markets.

    Thank you to 17,050 readers for another month of record readership but please don’t tell us what not to write about!

    ShareProphets launched just twenty months ago and has not spent a dime on advertising – our audience has grown by word of mouth alone. We already have more readers than Shares Magazine and our readership, now 17,050, grows every week. At this rate we will overtake the Investors Chronicle within a year, especially of it keeps on tipping China frauds. The readership numbers for the past month were another record.

    Oil Prices Can’t Remain This Low Forever!

    It’s been a shocking week for the FTSE and oil shares. The FTSE was down 2.49% on Friday alone. BP (BP.) has taken a battering too, with a fall of 3.3% and a fall of 6.1% over the previous four days. For some share writers, this might be a quirky thing to write about. But for me I actually put quite a lot of my own money into BP, so it’s more serious and real. However I certainly will not be selling any BP shares, and here’s the main reason why.

    Life as CFO in a failing company like Quindell: someone who has been there explains

    What is it like being Laurence Moorse, the FD at Quindell (QPP) as it goes down the swanny. I asked a gentleman now FD of a successful AIM listed company but who in a former life was parachuted into a quoted entity that he pretty soon realized was a can of worms, to explain. The experience still haunts him. His recollection will give you some idea of what life is like in Fareham right now.
