Most recently writing on RedstoneConnect (REDS), I concluded that there looked to be continuing encouraging trading momentum and, at 1.425p, the shares were for watchlists. They were little changed on the noted share price level – before a “Trading Statement” announcement this morning…
Cynical Bear says that I am just being far too kind to Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO) with my 15 questions earlier today. Oddly I have yet to get an answer and nor will I as the company contemplates insolvency and other matters. But back to Mr Bear who says I should have asked a 16th question concerning another possible case of lying.
Having last month failed to ignite the share price with a ramptastic “blur engaged with Top 100 UK law firm” announcement, blur Group (BLUR) has had much more success today – on the back of a “blur engaged with Global Electronics Group” announcement, the shares currently 200%+ higher at above 20p…
For years Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO) has ramped its shares to get away placing after placing with ramptastic investor presentations. But that was before I started asking all those horrible questions for which there was no answer. and Winnileaks started obtaining toxic leaked emails. Last night the company had a presentation in London. It has another in Zurich this morning. Warning Swiss folk and tax dodgers quotes about the London chinwag include "everyone left unhappy" and from a long term bull "I am just throwing in the towel." The shares have crashed by 23% to 36p bid so far today. The target for me remains 0p. But for those folks going to the Zurich meeting here here are 15 questions Advanced can't or won't answer:
Amryt (AMYT) has announced that it has completed of discussions with the Food and Drug Administration, the US FDA, and European Medicines Agency regarding the design of its pivotal phase 3 clinical trial for AP101 as a potential treatment for Epidermolysis Bullosa. The global market for a treatment for EB is, according to Amryt, worth £1.3 billion.
On 24 August 2015, Eden Research (EDEN) announced its now infamous deal (aka massive panama pump fraud) with TerpeneTech. That fraud is now unravelling big time as explained here. But let us revert to the RNS of 2015 which stated :
Previously writing on LED lighting technology company Dialight (DIA) I noted somewhat of a share price recovery to 759.5p, but that ahead of the results for the 2016 calendar year I avoided. The following now reviews post those results – and with the shares having risen further…
Hello Share Thrashers. In the past I’ve commended you to look at JD Wetherspoon (JDW). My reasoning was that average families, like mine, cannot do without it.
Shares in Independent Resources (IRG) are up 569% today. I know James Parsons of Sound Energy (SOU) has joined but this is insanity, a rampfest by many of the usual suspects. Just do the maths! If you cannot I can do it for you in his bonus podcast.
Having noted previously justified caution on parcels, mail and logistics group DX (DX.), the shares had edged up to 9.5p before a “Re: Proposed West Midlands Hub” announcement last week…
We start with myself and Dr Freud trying to offer helpful advice to an attractive young lady. The the podcast meanders on to Thor Mining (THOR) and I digress to an old pal whose uncle was apparently a war criminal. Then I move on to Bowleven (BLVN), 88 Energy (88E), Rose Petroleum (ROSE), Electronic Data Processing (EDP), Worthington (WRN) and pension deficits.
Last week I asked you explain which of the four companies whose logos I showed ( Globo, Cloudtag, Naibu & Polly Peck) was the odd one out. A few of you were game enough to have a stab as you can see HERE.
There are some folks who think that the failure of the Serious Fraud Office (SFO) to arrest king fraudster Rob Terry of Quindell means that Mr 2+2 can = 5 is off the hook. Think again. A source has been in touch.
Kick-the-board-out requisition-pressured BowLeven (BLVN) CEO Kevin Hart is “delighted to be working together with Victoria Oil & Gas to unlock the potential of Bomono… gaining access to Victoria Oil & Gas’s extensive infrastructure and gas marketing experience”. Hmmm, the market doesn’t seem to share ‘delight’ in the deal from your side though Kevin – shares in BowLeven currently more than 7% lower, whilst those in Victoria Oil & Gas (VOG) more than 12% higher…
There are two matters under discussion in this podcast. First the merger between Aberdeen Asset Management (ADN) and Standard Life (SL.). I am bored by it. It is not what will drive the share price. Second the corrupt way the news was leaked via a corrupt Fleet Street in a way that can only harm private investors. As an "insider" in days gone by I explain exactly how this corrupt and rotten system works.
Really pleased to see the announcement from MetalNRG (NEX: MNRG) this morning that Paul Johnson, who I dubbed AIM’s very own Tiger Woods for reasons outlined HERE, is back in a top job having taken on the CEO role at Metal NRG. I’m hoping for good things, Paul.
Aidan Earley, the long term close business partner of Craig Whyte, is suing me for £50,000 for libel because I have, he claims, damaged his good reputation as a businessman and financier. As our research team looks at the 52 UK companies where he has been involved since starting his career in 1988... well that can wait. But before Mr Earley continues with this farce I should like him to consider two emails I have received from Mr Tony Keeling... oh dear, oh dear Aidan.
Good try Waseem. The great Bear raider and professional Northern git nominated himself as the Bulletin Board Moron of the week for expressing sympathy with Cloudtag Morons who had lost money on the fraud. In normal circumstances I would give Waseem the prize. But his was one of 50 entries last week. As you can see HERE many of them were splendid as the Cloudtag (CTAG) loons went into meltdown. The winner arrives late in the day and displays such a string determination to ignore all the known facts, that I almost admire this moron.
The US President is expected to speak to the Greek prime minister in the coming days. The substance of the call, according to well-placed sources, will be Greece’s ongoing negotiations with creditors and the role the International Monetary Fund may or may not play in the country’s current rescue programme. Donald Trump has publicly tweeted that he thinks the Greeks are “wasting their time” staying in the Eurozone.
Hello Share Riders. I’d been playing the markets for many years before I went to my first investment show in London. Like everyone else in this golden game, I thought I knew it all anyway. Nor did I want to be bored to death by grim-faced grey-suits, all younger than I. But Uncle Tom told me his show was different and I attended my first UK Investor Show four years ago.
The March edition of the UK Investor Show Magazine is live featuring 7 share tips, company profiles, interview with Richard Poulden of PCGE, why we fight fraud & fake news on Channel 4, Donald Trump, Marine Le Pen, a look at the banksters and much more.
Well this is a company that will sponsor any old crap and let's face it, 95% of Bulletin Board Morons post on the LSE Asylum. As the countdown to the fraud Cloudtag (CTAG) being booted off AIM next week accelerates you kind of sense which stock will be the focus of most entries. The competition rules are simple. Just nominate the daftest post on a BB or on twitter in the comments section below. Once again, our in-house semi-trained loon Wildes is allowed to nominate his own posts. The deadline for entries is midnight on Sunday 26th March. Post away!
David Buik is one of those City grandees you are not allowed to criticise. It is like having a go at the late Queen Mum or beating baby seals to death. In that vein he sent out a wteet today which is wrong but I am not sure why exactly.
I comment on the hopeless response of smug MPs and the established media to yesterday's terror attack on my own website in a podcast HERE. On the markets I look at expectations management at Next (NXT), at how we know or knew about the balance sheet at Toople (TOOP) covered HERE by Cynical Bear or Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO) heading for 0p and covered in detail by me earlier HERE. I look at Public Services Properties (PSPI ) and what its AIM casino departure says about RTOs and contingent liabilities - which reminds me again of New World Oil & Gas (NEW). Finally I have a detailed look at the strange world of Paternoster Resources (PRS), not a stock you have to own in any way. PS Cynical Bear is not me. Can you see any typos in his articles?
The Mrs (on maternity leave) is off galavanting somewhere. Eight days ahead of UK Investor, the busiest time of the year, I am babysitting. I am such a god damn frigging feminist. Anyhow I record this in terror lest Joshua wakes up. In today's podcast I explain why you cannot finesse a trade on a fundamental play and discuss Minoan (MIN) and Wishbone (WSBN) in that vein. I look at Digital Barriers (DGB) the latest triumph from Cloudtag (CTAG) moron in chief Liam Nichols. I discuss Tethys (RPL) which like Cloudtag is soon to leave the AIM Casino, Nyota (NYO) and London Capital (LCG).
When running Broken Hill Resources (BHR) into the ground Murray D'Almeida threatened shareholders to vote for a crap deal at a GM or face wipe-out. Despite the infamous hairdresser sham placing, shareholders voted against Murray and his colleagues on the "screw you - we hate you so much" principle. Now with D'Almeida pulling strings at Management Resource Solutions (MRS) as a consultant - to avoid GM eviction shame see HERE - the same threat is being used.
If no Nomad is prepared to act for the FRAUD Cloudtag (CTAG) then its shares, now suspended, will be booted off the AIM Casino. No AIM = no death spiral funding so it will - very soon - run out of, other people's cash, and will go bust. But the first step is being booted off AIM. And, inspired by liar Amit Ben Haim, we have a useful countdown clock until that ouzo moment. Enjoy.
You might hate bear raiders. You might think that short selling is unethical. But what you cannot argue with is that ignoring men such as Evil Knievil when they sniff out a fraud or accounting malpractice will cost you a packet. At last year's UK Investor Show the Country's top bears did a detailed presention on AIM darling Avanti Communications, one of the AIM companies most beloved by professional fund managers. Since that warning Avanti shares have collapsed by more than 90%. This year the bears have new targets.
Hello Sharemates. As predicted on this glorious website some time ago, the share price of IQE (IQE) would fall on reporting day - and then recover. In the event when the figures were revealed on Tuesday, the shares fell by about 12%. This was not logical, as the results were rather perky, as I outlined at the time.
The fellow or lady from the Costa del Crime is yet to tweet but he (or she) has a cracking portfolio as you can see on his/her profile, headed up by the fraud Cloudatag (CTAG). In light of that I wonder if you would care to suggest a first tweet as our caption contest with a twist. Submit your entries in the comments section below. The deadline is midnight tonight, 23rd March
Writing last month on Flowgroup (FLOW) I noted the shares down below 6p, having been 25p+ less than a year ago. Having fallen further, to sub 4p, they have currently recovered to 5p following a couple of recent announcements…
The demise of Gametech PLC the next venture of Jason Drummond after the Teather's (TEA) debacle looks clear - so much for a stockmarket float care of London's worst Nomad Roland "Fatty" Cornish. We revealed the Gametech was heading for tits up town HERE last week. Now Mr Drummond's apparent arch enemy Richard Skelhorn has bitten back with an official statement relating to that article:
Shares in surveillance technology company Digital Barriers (DGB) are currently more than 17.5% lower, at 25.5p, on the back of a “Trading Update” announcement. Trading warning ahoy! You were warned…
With funds replenished by the recent placing the new management team at ECR Minerals (ECR) is - as predicted - not hanging around. The shares are well up on our share tip at a 1.7p offer, at 1.9p-2.05p. If you can get stock at 1.9p you should do so - our target to sell remains 2.5p+ and we expect to be there soon. The newsflow is only just starting.
Specialist electronic equipment manufacturer and components distributor Solid State (SOLI) has made a “Trading Update” announcement – and the following reviews with the shares currently more than 10% lower, at around 450p, in response…
Shore cap is House broker to Amryt Pharma (AMYT) so everything it writes cannot be said to be any way shape or form impartial. And since we own a shed load of the shares we are biased as hell too. Having said that this note is detailed and lifting the target price from 35p to 88p in light of recent news is pretty dramatic given that the shares were 18.5p on Friday when this "most excellent" research note came out.
I have just noted that my old pal "thirsty" David Bick is doing the PR for hedge fund Crown Ocean in its battle to oust the shamed, discredited and unwanted board and management at Bowleven (BLVN). If you are in a scrap with utter scumbags having Bick on your side is no bad thing as he is the king of this form of trench warfare, gutter warfare. Team Crown issued a statement on Friday which is damning. You will remember that the management of Bowleven is still in place despite shareholders voting most of the bastards off the board and now they are trying to flog the company. Crown - quite correctly - smells a monstrous rat. It states:
Together Robert Sutherland Smith and Tom Winnifrith have now been working in finance for 71 years - the last ten or so together. Tom wishes to stress that RSS accounts for most of that, the great value investor starting his City career at the Unilever Pension Fund the year before Tom was born. In this book they outline 71 tricks of the trade for making money from shares.

Most investment books seem to be large enough to keep the front door open and while some contain gems it is hard to find them amid the verbiage. The aim here is to produce a short guide which simply cuts to the chase. I hope that it will provide food for thought for everyone from beginner to expert but whoever you are it should be quick and easy to read and digest.
