Notes from Underground: Dy-No-Mite!

Week after week I complain that readers choose the soap opera story lines on ShareProphets over the hard journalism, or, at the very least, press play on Bearcast and zone out to the bliss of Tom's outrage. But this week, at the beguinning of the summer silly season, readers have chosen a real ShareProphets investigative story, Dynamite: Highlands Natural Resources: Tell us all about Mendell Energy Technologies LLC, as their number one read of the week. I'm proud of you.

Filthy 40 AIM Casino Elimination Stakes – you were right! (so far…)

It seems that Yougov, Mori and whatever else the pollster are called these days have a thing or two to learn from ShareProphets polling. They keep on getting it wrong, but our readers responded to the question of how many delistings and suspensions were coming on the ShareProphets AIM-China Filthy Forty over four weeks from 17 June and half of respondents said two or three. So far, it is bang on. Mind you, there are still a few days to go.

Alexander Mining has more dilution to come

Alexander Mining (AXM) seems to be popular amongst PIs at the moment, but I wonder how much of that actually relates to the performance of the company rather than being linked to the recent placing and warrants!

Filthy 40 MoneySwap refinancing proposals as equity faces big dilution

Friday after-hours saw a no-one-is-watching o’clock proposal released by ShareProphets AIM-China Filthy Forty play Moneyswap (SWAP). IF all goes according to plan then existing shareholders will be diluted very heavily as the bailout money gets most of the equity (at quite a discount to Friday’s closing price). If not then the company goes bust. But you can’t say you were not warned.

Malcolm Stacey on Holiday Day 4 Caption Contest & Day 3 winner

It is not just to avoid Wildes screaming "fix - insider dealing and market abuse" and reporting me to the FCA but once again I am not awarding the prize for the day three contest to Nigel Somerville. You can see his and the other five losing entries HERE. For today's contest Getafix has, it seems, left the beach and headed inland and sent us a new photo to allow you to do your worst. The deadline for entering today's contest is midnight ( which is also the deadline in the Tory leadership poll HERE). So yesterday's winner with another corker was...

Tom Winnifrith BearCast - the FCA has been investigating me for the past few weeks - poltroons

In this podcast I relay to you news of an investigation which has now closed into me and others relating to InternetQ. It shows the sinister powers the FCA has and uses but also the crass stupidity of the regulators in pursuing such an obviously flawed investigation. Not only was I 100% innocent but I was demonstrably so. What makes the fact that these fascist poltroons go after an investigative journalist who has busted so many frauds is that the FCA has not gone after the frauds despite me handing it evidence on a plate. I refer to Quindell, 3DM ( where in its FSA days it actually helped protect the fraudsters), Globo and Sefton This has meant that investors have been screwed as a result. The FCA is not fit for purpose

China FRAUD Taihua - another stinker of a set of results from the Filthy 40

ShareProphets AIM-China Filthy Forty play Taihua (TAIH) released its FY15 numbers on Thursday – deadline day to avoid suspension under AIM Rules. But they were released after-hours at 4.52pm: talk about last-minute. The numbers are a horror, but then so is the Auditor’s Qualified opinion, and the material uncertainty warning in the Going Concern Statement.

Nektan – Another disappointing trading update – any hope?

I first wrote about Nektan (NKTN), my bear pick of the year, in mid-January HERE with the share price having already had a bad start to the year down to 107p from 130p at the close of 2015. Following yesterday’s pre-close trading update for the year to 30 June 2016, it closed down 23% on the day at a mere 47p. Time to reassess my position.

Gulf Keystone Petroleum - Living On Borrowed Time

June was a quiet month for Gulf Keystone (GKP), at least in terms of news for observers. Internally, there are doubtless all manner of interesting conversations taking place. We were given a twin helping of clues on Friday as to the content and direction of these discussions. Unfortunately, there is still no reason to believe that the shares have any value. But maybe the end is nigh.

Vast Resources: Crexit achieved, an incredible effort from the activist shareholders

It’s been a fantastic week for democracy on AIM first with the ousting of the Teathers Financial (TEA) Board early in the week and then, yesterday, even more impressively was the show of strength by the shareholders of Vast Resources (VAST) at the general meeting ousting the greedy financiers, Crede, in the process.

Tory Leadership Poll v2 - 60% of you were wrong last time, please try harder

On Tuesday we asked you who would be the next Tory leader and 60% of you went for folks who are not even on the ballot today including the man who has screwed half the women in London (Boris), the man who has screwed up English Football (Roy Hodgson) and the man who allowed the greedy junior doctors to screw even more cash out of the NHS, Jeremy Hunt. So let's try again. Who will be the next leader of the Tory party? The deadline for voting is midnight on Sunday.

Worthington is now Officially fucked - "merger partner" Nuna declared bankrupt: time for the Rozzers to move in?

The former CEO of Danish listed NunaMinerals was owed cash by the company and yesterday managed to get the company formally declarred bankrupt in a court in Greeland - see HERE. That means that Main market listed fraud Worthington (WRN) can no longer procrastinate and claim to be in talks about an RTO. So it must be game over for Aiden Earley, Craig Whyte and Doug Ware.

Filthy 40 – China New Energy FY15 results: a stinking POS festooned in Red Flags

ShareProphets AIM-China Filthy Forty play China New Energy (CNEL) has seen us hoist the Red Flag on several occasions before (see HERE) but its FT15 results, released on deadline day (Thursday) take the biscuit. The company is, quite simply, a disgrace and its advisers (Nomad Cairn and disgraced Broker Daniel Stewart) should be ashamed.

China fraud 40 Jiasen – drowning is cash, generating cash, profitable, PE<1, cancels dividend. Why might that be?

Having traded as high as 6.25p just six weeks ago, shares in ShareProphets AIM-China Filthy Forty Jiasen International (JSI) have collapsed down to just 3p after it scraped over the line to release its calendar FY15 numbers on deadline day yesterday. The numbers are, of course, wonderful…which is why the company which is drowning in Red Flags (oops) cash has cancelled the full year dividend.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Once a Fraud always a Norfolk (Eden) & Fisking Belfort Securities Research

Ahead of my hot date with the most amazing woman tonight I am just counting down the hours. Meanwhile I contemplate the nature of fraud with explicit reference to Eden Research (EDEN) which - pro tem - retains its AIM listing. I am sure PR fecking genius Paul Queenie McManus won't like what I say but he can just go chat to his BB Moron pals, smear me again and go fuck himself. Moving on I do a complete fisking of a "corporate hold" ( ie sell as fast as you can) research note from Belfort Securities on piece of Turkish Servision (SEV). Yes this podcast contains yet more quite appalling language.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Why Paul Scott's fucktard follower will always lose & should you sell all your oil shares?

Okay this really is the last one until September. But I have packed and am ready to travel and am bored, so here goes one more time. First up I discuss those who always blame others for their lack of profits, citing some twitter chum of the great Paul Scott. Then as Brent plunges through $45 I discuss why it is falling, where it will go next and if you should sell all your shares. The answer is a very selective no.

Highlands Natural Resources: Results out - fun over - bubble bursting - get out

I’m no longer surprised how stocks that, in my view, are inherently worthless or at least worth a fraction of their current share price can stay at such a high price or so long but I think the bubble is bursting, and gravity is taking hold, at Highlands Natural Resources (HNR) with a shocking set of results released yesterday. Let’s have a look at the “highlights”!

Lies, smears & blackmail: Loathsome Rita tries to cling on at Magnolia Petroleum

Less than lovely Rita Whittingham is doing her utmost to cling onto the gravy train for her and her relatives which is Magnolia Petroleum (MAGP). You will remember that there are moves to oust the proven failure and install one director from Nostra Terra (NTOG), Evan Ainsworth, and an independent director, Zac "The Knife" Phillips, the City's No 1 oil analyst. This would not be a change of control as Rita asserts since The Knife is independent, but a much needed boardroom clearout. Now to the defence document which is worthy of Jeffrey Archer. It is just low grade fiction.

Naibu – SHOCKER filthy forty update and litigation news. Who's in the frame?

Out of the blue this morning, we have had an update from ShareProphets AIM-China Filthy Forty Naibu. This was an obvious fraud and delisted in 2015 when the money stopped flowing and Houyan Lin disappeared. But the board decided to stand up to be counted. They may have been taken in and signed off on all sorts of lies, but they have been pursuing the case and today have also announced that viable legal causes of action look to exist to go after certain of the various professional advisers who were involved at the time of the flotation.

Now we all know what some folks have clearly known for a while, what the problem is.

It is good to see a CEO putting his money where his mouth is and the share purchase by Erik Henau should also scotch the silly rumours that a placing is imminent. The Concepta (CPT)  head honcho has purchased 80,000 shares at 12.175p. He now owns 293,333 shares so in that context this is a decent purchase.

The fake news Guardian - misleading headline on Brexit and EU workers leaving

I bet the BBC News picks up on it and runs with it too. But its sister publication is quick out of the blocks...The Guardian today runs with a raft of misleading headlines and other fake news as is its wont but the one on Brexit driving EU workers abroad wins the prize. The left wing rag with plunging sales and spiralling losses states: "Almost half of highly skilled EU workers 'could leave UK within five years". The sub head is "Deloitte study finds 47% were considering leaving after Brexit, while overall one-third of non-British workers could leave". Right, okay but hang on what did the survey actually say and was it big enough to be statistically valid?
