With Nigel Wray, aka Britain's Buffett, as its largest shareholder and we also having a decent though nowhere near disclosable , stake we take a keen interest in R4E (R4E) whose boss David Stoller flew in from New York to present at UK Investor show. Enjoy.
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.
Post one of the Dragon's Den session we appear to be the owner of shares in Xtract Resources (XTR), I blame Steve Moore & Gary Newman. Anyhow, here is Jan Nelson presenting at UK Investor Show.
The following video is hilarious but makes a rather serious point. Enjoy.
And now a presentation at UK Investor Show by Eddy Travia of ISDX lobster pot listed Coinsilium (COIN). Enjoy.
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).
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.
Minoan (MIN) disappointingly announced after hours Tuesday that two appeals have been lodged following the issue of the Presidential Decree granting land use approval for its project in Crete.
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.
Technology provider to the leisure and entertainment markets, accesso (ACSO) has updated that “the announcements made by the company on 5 April 2016 and 6 April 2016 incorrectly stated Mr Sim's (founder and now employee who retired from the board in March) total beneficial interest” (in the company’s shares). Hmmm…
The fourth Dragon's Den session at UK Investor show saw myself (Tom Winnifrith), Brian Kinane and Steve Moore each invest £1,000 in shares. Our choice of where to invest was ValiRx (VAL), Jubilee Platinum (JLP), Kibo Mining (KIBO) or Ariana Resources (AAU). Enjoy.
Investors in collectibles have had a tough time with stamp dealer Stanley Gibbons (SGI) in recent times, those shares down by 95% over the past 12 months. Rare book minnow Scholium (SCHO), on the other hand, is looking rather cheerful.
When you think CEOs do not look old enough to be CEOs maybe you are getting old. And that brings me to the presentation at UK Investor Show by Stephen Clayson of ECR Minerals (ECR)
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.
This s why so many of us on this website are so bearish at a macro level. David Scott of Andrews Gwynne articulates the bear economics case very clearly. Enjoy!
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.
Perhaps that is why drowning in debt Avanti Communications (AVN) has been unable to hit any of its targets and perhaps it is why it is going to run out of cash his year. It seems that the price it can charge for satellite capacity has fallen by up to 80%. Who says so? er...
Post the Dragon's Den sessions we found ourselves owning shares in Berkeley Energia (BKY). Steve and I reckon these shares are worth at least 45p, watch the video to see why we are so excited. Incidentally when we first tipped them at 20p, Brokerman Dan Levi said this was a rotten tip and stuck the knife in. Time for an apology Mr ex bank robber?
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.
Shares in Wishbone Gold (WSBN), which is still not doing a placing as a certain ex bank robber insists but instead is raising debt but not for PLC costs, have slipped to 0.475p prompting a couple of readers to ask if Richard Poulden said something bad at the Mining Capital Conference yesterday?
The May edition of the UK Investor Show Magazine is live featuring three share tips from Gary Newman, the Greek meltown is worse than everyone thinks, and the EU is not fit for purpose plus a photofeature from the 2017 UK Investor Show.
The busting of a placing by AIM-listed UK Oil and Gas (UKOG) at 1p by Tom Winnifrith has caused a bit of controversy. It is not the first time he has been accused of being irresponsible by blowing the lid on a placing only for it to be pulled or the price dropped. Anyone left holding the baby gets their fingers burned – in the recent example quite badly if they had been buying into the ramp at north of 1.4p only to see the company raise cash at just 0.8p. Is it right?
The nauseating Mail on Sunday fawned upon Pippa Middleton and her ghastly family as they celebrated the "wedding of the Year". Bring on the revolution! But perhaps the real wedding of the year should be between our two very own in-house Bulletin Board Morons GrannySnuffs & Wildes who seem made for each other. can you find examples on the LSE Asylum, iii, ADVFN or twitter of comments more idiotic than those of our own dream team? If so post in the comments section below, the deadline is midnight Sunday 28th May.
Having bought itself some time by declaring an initial sack-the-board General Meeting requisition “invalid” (a revised, valid requisition announced by it at an attempted ‘no one watching o’clock’, 5:15 pm, on Friday), Infrastrata (INFA) has this afternoon made a “Review of stategic options & project update” announcement...
AIM-listed travel agent and wannabe Greek holiday resort developer Minoan (MIN) announced a small bolt-on acquisition this morning….and a placing. Oh, and an update on its debt facility due to expire at the end of June. It is disappointing to see a placing (at 9p), but in the general scheme of things it is a relatively small amount so the pill is sugared to some extent.
It was a keen competition this week. But we have found a winner.
Take a look! European investors are clearly failing to grasp the very significant financial and commercial benefits available for Orphan or Rare Disease drug developers. So much so in fact, that sector-focussed Amryt Pharma (AMYT) finds no quoted peers in London, yet a good basket of NASDAQ-listed comparables are seen to command a significant premium despite mostly being pre-revenue and somewhat earlier in their development. Such anomalies can and, of course, do rapidly correct.
Any reader of my pieces will know I hold Challenger Acquisitions (CHAL) in pretty low regard but the outrageous ramping that has now gone on for the last four trading days is an absolute disgrace and the FCA should take a look. I’ll explain.
I have already covered the dire financials of Eden Research that indicate it is just months from trading whilst insolvent as well as its panning by the Financial Reporting Council (FRC) - in response to my urgings. Now to today's monstrous half truths - I am perhaps being 50% too charitable in that description.
Eden Research (EDEN) has today published godawful results and admitted that my very good friends at the Financial Reporting Council (FRC) investigated it - after I requested such an investigation - and have forced it to restate past numbers. It claims that the FRC has now settled all matters. Au contraire. that is another lie from the fraudsters and there are many more porkies in this statement. Truly, the pants of shamed PR Paul Queenie McManus of Walbrook will be cinders and ash after this effort. This all came out as Eden published Godawful numbers for calendar 2016.
The sold-out success that was the 1st April 2017 UK Investor Show again saw five 'Dragon's Den' sessions where a number of CEOs each gave a pitch and three Dragons each picked one stock for a £1,000 investment. How are they faring so far?...
With some great investigative journalism of which this website would have been proud, Brokerman Dan flushed it out a few weeks ago. The former bank robber - correctly - stated that Andalas (ADL) was looking to raise £1 million at 0.06p and the AIM listed crock of shit suspended its shares. Today they are unsuspended after the company raised £600,000 at 0.1p. It says this is at a premium to the suspension price. But it is a spoof, Andalas is still bust. It is insolvent as of today!
Malcolm Stacey is old enough to know about King Canute. In fact he is so old that he was there as a boy when the King sat in his chair on the beach and attempted to turn back the tide. Malcolm surely you remember the day as if it was yesterday? In which case why do you forget this valuable lesson when it comes to Inmarsat (ISAT) and your article today in which you misquote me and get it wrong in so many other ways.
"A credit crunch is brewing and when it happens, the UK is going to get hurt." These are not my words but the start of the Editorial in this weekend’s Guardian. The article then went on to say "That is the message emerging from senior executives in the financial services industry, who do not think Britain has changed that much since the 2008 credit disaster and the devastating crash that followed. Three developments lie at the heart of this disturbing analysis: spectacular growth in the sale of second mortgages, car loans and credit cards." I would heartily agree with these comments as this is my experience too. But what the article fails to say is that the UK is not alone in this debt bubble - once more it is a Global issue.
Hello Share Scoopers. There have been quite a few occasions now that I’ve commended a Footsie satellite company to your attention. On each mention, as I recall, the share grew in value. However, last year the shares took a big knock.
One of the most fascinating scenes I’ve seen for some time is the sight of Big Donald jigging around with some sort of weird entertainment put on by the Saudi’s for the President's visit. It almost made me forget the big benefit of this amiable state visit on share shifters like us. And that of course is that the President’s friendly reception sent the oil price up.
An announcement from Corero Network Security (CNS) with a headline “Corero Tier 1 Internet service provider customer GTT Communications, Inc. launches DDoS Mitigation service”. Then “further to the announcement on 19 April 2017 regarding a Global Tier 1 Internet service provider customer win… announces that the customer, GTT Communications, Inc. (NYSE: GTT), has launched its DDoS Mitigation service”. “Global Tier 1” now hey! And you what? The contract win has already been announced? Ramptastic…
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.
