GW Pharmaceuticals. A Drug Fueled Valuation at £1.2 billion

A glance at the chart of GW Pharmaceuticals (GWP), the developer of Cannabis based cures for a variety of diseases, since its appearance on AIM some fifteen years ago perfectly demonstrates the fact that when it comes to ramping and promoting drug companies the health obsessed Americans have no equal.

Crikey Creighton! You Carry On Collecting Cash.

Hello Share Trundlers. Some of my colleagues on this wondrous website may not agree with me, but I think a full listing on the stock exchange is worth more, for peace of mind, than the hit and miss world of AIM. I am especially encouraged if the fully listed firm is a true minnow. And I give today for your further research, Creightons (CRL).

Isle of Man Government dumb clowns but also morally bankrupt to do business with WH Ireland

The poltroons who run the Isle of Man Government yesterday announced that it had awarded a mandate to manage the cash the colony favoured by tax dodgers has hoarded away to WH Ireland (WHI). The mandate from the tin pot crown colony will not be enough to transform the fortunes of WH Ireland whose financial position is still pretty dire. But it shows the Isle of Man Government up for the fools that they are.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast - Nicotine Clean for 2 days under 3 months

Yup I am still clean and 99.9% of the time very glad to be. But I know that if I have just one fag it will be all over. So I will not. I digress. Today's podcast covers my little internet difficulties here in Kambos then goes onto Aureus Mining (AUE), Circle Oil (COP), IGAS (IGAS), LGO Energy (LGO) and Gulf Keystone (GKP). Finally I urge regular listener Marcus Stuttard, head of the oxymorons at AIM Regulation, to read the utterly shocking Phil Edmonds and Andrew Groves tale HERE as it shows what a shite job the bogus Sheriff is doing.

Friday game: Who wants to be an African Mining Multi Millionare?

Okay this game is really simple. Pictured below are four players well known to the AIM casino resources game. All you have to do is name the four and match how much they are personally thought to have made from listed Africa plays. Sadly investors in their companies are not eligible to play "who wants to be a millionaire" as they have largely done their conkers. Anyhow, over to you dear readers.

England Cricketer Phil Edmonds, Andrew Groves, African Potash and an explosive dossier on AIM fraud

African Potash (AFPO) was one of seven companies listed on the AIM casino by former England cricketer Phil Edmonds and his business partner Andrew Groves. My attention has been drawn to a recently published dossier on the two men which can only be described as utterly explosive. On the basis of what is in this dossier any company associated with the two looks to be, pro tem, 100% uninvestable.

The Case for the Big Proton Beam Venture - Part Two

Hello Share Slickers. I’ve already featured the bulletin board darling, Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO) this week. But as I’ve currently spent a large wodge of time researching this interesting share, it would be a waste  not to bring you a bit more info and opinion on a share which has risen like a rocket and fallen like its stick. I think that fall has been overdone and punters are possibly waiting in the wings for a bit more news before they return to the stock.

How the Snap Election Will Affect Your Share Prices

Hello Share Pillagers. We all should have known something big was going to happen by the way shares were marked down heavily after the Easter break. On Easter Monday, when our stock market was closed, the US version was open. During that session, American shares rose by about 1%. That usually means British shares rise in tandem, but not this time.

TODAY: Patience, patience, patience and yet more patience - that is the key to making money from shares

Making money from shares is simple. Well it should be. Buy cheap. Hold. Hold. Hold. Hold, and finally sell when the shares have delivered you big gains. Where so many folks go wrong is getting impatient and not being prepared to hold, hold, hold. Let us tell you about Symphony Environmental (SYM) which we tipped at a 6.75p offer just over three years ago. It did nothing for ages....

African Potash - the legal case for victims of the fraud almost underway

Before I call it a day I want to see the victims of the African Potash (AFPO) fraud get some of their money back, even if some of those victims were fairly beastly to me as I exposed the fraud. Friday's bombshell from Potash shows the game is up but the big frauds happened before this worthless enterprise was booted off AIM. To that end I have been working to help put together a legal action. That action is now almost underway and Peter Petyt, the man running things, wrote to more than 50 victims who have come forward at the weekend. If you lost money and want to try to get it back it is not too late to contact Peter. His letter & contact details follow.

You are hereby on notice as retail bubbles start to pop

Artificial political constructs never last. The EU is great for the “elites” in Brussels; not so much for the average citizen and the tragedy of monetary union is that Europe's political class has gone to extreme lengths to hold the euro together regardless of underlying economic logic. But this has only perpetuated and exacerbated the coming political crisis. "Monetary union has created a conflict between a centralised elite on the one hand, and the forces of democracy at the national level on the other. This is extraordinarily dangerous,” Mervyn King wrote in his recent book 'The End of Alchemy'.

As ever, this is just a spoof in order to encourage more buying in the market so as to allow Bracknor to offload more of its death-spiral conversion shares as Advanced hopes and prays for the next £1.235 million tranche of funding before the coffers run dry.
