I can't say why but it concerns a greedy and selfish individual and I am now in a very bad mood indeed. In this brief podcast I cover Andalas (ADL), Avanti Communications (AVN), Outsourcery (OUT), African Potash (AFPO) and Butterfly Corporate Finance.
"How can you have a winner?" screamed the new barking mad Jew hating head of the NUS. "Winning is such an elitist concept. I bet you are a white male. Probably a Jew too." And with that she stormed off. But we do have a winner with a caption for the picture below. There were some oustanding entries as you can see HERE (as well as a deranged rant at myself by one loon with a maths problem) but the winner is Santiago with:
Anadalas Energy (ADL), the much ramped piece of Turkish, once called CEB Resources, and run by Dave "rule breaker" Whitby had until close of play on 22 April to publish a re-admission document or it should - if anyone gave a FF about the rules these days - have been booted off the AIM casino. It is now 25th April. There has been no RNS. So....
Gold seems to be in an uptrend so maybe it is time to get a bit of exposure to the gold sector once more? But how? We adsked ten writers connected to this site and/or speaking at UK Investor show on Saturday if they had to bet the ranch on one stock what would it be?
Having last week noted the conditional granting of finance facility waivers including for obligations for Petropavlovsk (POG) to comply with certain financial covenants, the company has now highlighted a further update from its Hong Kong-listed associate, IRC.
A “Trading Update” from marketing group St Ives (SIV) commences that “trading overall in the eight months ended 1 April 2016 has continued to be broadly in line with management expectations, with group revenue running approximately 5% ahead of the equivalent period last year”. Hmmm, ok. “However, the outlook for the final quarter, and for the following financial year, has deteriorated”. Uh oh…
BHS started with 1 store in 1928. Today it employs 11,000 folk and operates from 164 stores. And it has just gone bust. The blame lies not with the current management but with Sir Philip Green who sold BHS to today's bosses for £1 a year ago.
"Clumsy interventions" by some of the world's central banker will "destroy" the economy and usher in political chaos, a notoriously bearish Societe Generale strategist has claimed. In a note published Friday, Edwards once again slammed loose monetary policy, pointing fingers at central bankers for failing to recognize the consequences of low interest rates and quantitative easing. European Central Bank President Mario Draghi attends a news conference at the ECB headquarters in Frankfurt, Germany, March 10, 2016."When in the last few weeks I have heard that Janet Yellen sees no bubbles in the U.S., when Ben Bernanke hones and restates his helicopter money speech, and when Mario Draghi says that the ECB's policy of printing money and negative interest rates was working,
Well you cannot say that you were not warned! I have exposed time and time again on this website how the business career of one series Dragons Den flop Piers Linney has been marked by serial failure. The loathsome self-publicist Linney said floating Outsourcery on AIM at 110p in May 2013 was the highlight of his career. Today Linney has admitted that his company is almost toast. What fucking brilliant news.
Having spotted the appointment of another joint Broker to AIM-listed Bushveld Minerals (BMN) on 8 April – see HERE – I had wondered if it was placing ahoy. Last Thursday saw the suspension of the shares announced by AIM at lunch-time, pending an announcement, although it took until after-hours on Friday for the company to bother to comment.
Hello Share Mates. If you don’t plan to go to our UK Investor Show this Saturday (April 30), then may I humbly suggest that you should give it a go. And may I quickly say that I have no percentage stake in the event, so the numbers attending make no difference to me. But I hope you grab a free ticket HERE and let me explain why you'd be mad not to.
This weekend is all about the London Marathon but in just SIX DAYS time a galaxy of legendary investors will be speaking at UK Investor Show. This is not a platform for share rampers based in dodgy offshore tax havens but a chance to hear men and woman who are simply the best. Make sure you have the date in your diary - Saturday April 30 and this is the LAST CHANCE to grab a complimentary ticket.
I now conclude my four part series on Rob Terry's remarkable interview with the Sunday Telegraph with the most shocking part, his denial of all wrongdoing, off all known facts. Whatever his actual mental state, Terry sounds like a psychopath.
If you didn’t know that the AIM market was highly regulated by the FCA, you could be forgiven for thinking that some companies exist purely to generate fees for the directors and brokers.
I start this podcast with a bit of a reflection on one or two excellent pieces this weekend notably my own stuff on African Potash (AFPO) and the Horse Hill ramp but also the cracking piece today by Cynical Bear on Fast Forward (FFWD). In the bearcast I also look at a stack more Brexit lies as well as discussing why Rob Terry has broken cover and where the SFO is with its investigation into the fraudster.
He may be a technical analysis freak but that does not mean he is not correct. After all this is not Zak "Judas" Mir we are talking about here. Jordan Roy Byrne argues that at the start of a bull market the miners perform way ahead of the metals and this is what we are seeing now. This has been the worst bear market in 90 years, so the following bull market should prove to be even bigger.
Anyone who uses the phrase "to be honest " or "I'll be honest" before making a statement is usually lying and that brings us to fraudster Rob Terry who uses that phrase in today's laughable interview with the Sunday Telegraph. One claim is that he made £30 million from the Quindell (QPP) fraud. Natch: Terry is lying as he does every time when there is a Y in the day he is speaking.
Following on from a few bearish pieces from Tom on FastForward Innovations (FFWD) that you can see HERE, I have my own views on why what was the “Jim Mellon show” but is fast becoming the “Lorne Abony show” is a no-go investment for me.
Preceding the financial crisis in 2008, debt was unchecked and increasing by $100 billion a month. The current capital markets are following a very similar trajectory. The USA and Canada have huge debt issues because of out of control government spending. The average person has no idea of the scale of the challenges the global system is facing. That is these thesis of fund manager Jonathan Wellum. He continues...
I really do not care who media minister John Whittingdale is shagging. He seems to have a way with the ladies, he is single and his latest hook up, the ex porn star, looks pretty fit. I am not sure about the hooker with a specialisation in S&M but it probably brought Mr Whittingdale back some happy memories of boarding school. Ooooh matron...what should I do about press regulation? Thwack. What is perhaps of more interest to me is the list of those making donations to Mr Whittingdale as disclosed in the register of members interests.
The June edition of the UK Investor Show Magazine is live featuring three resource shares to buy, two more share tips, a voting guide for investors, and where to emigrate if the wrong party wins a special offer expiring on June 14 and much more.
Queenie smears journalists and spins for all the worst companies on the casino from fraudsters Eden to Advanced Oncotherapy to Norfolk's finest Fusionex. He truly is a posterboy for AIM and thus a fitting sponsor for this week's contest. The challenge: We're looking for exemplary examples of sheer stupidity from those founts of brilliance; the Bulletin Board Morons who dwell on the cesspits that are LSE.co.uk, III.co.uk and ADVFN.co.uk. The deadline to post your entries in the comments section below is midnight, Sunday 2 July.
Slater & Gordon (SGH) spunked £649 million on buying the worthless, fraudulent assets of Quindell (QPP) in 2015, a deal that has seen its shareholders suffer a 99% wipeout. It has now filed a UK High Court claim against Watchstone (WTG), Quenron as was for £637 million and we have obtained the papers and, in a major scoop, publish the Claim in full below.
I tipped shares in Saffron Energy (SRON) but urged folks to take profits some months ago. The shares were then 8p+ having listed at 5p. In recent weeks the shares have slithered back towards that 5p and I have been urged by folks to re-tip. I resisted that urge. Something was wrong. Now we all know what some folks have clearly known for a while, what the problem is.
It has taken more than two decades and exposed the Greek planning system for the total joke that it is but Minoan (MIN) now has the all clear to go ahead and develop the spectacular Cave Sidero site in North East Crete.
You may know Tom Winnifrith as the man who exposes fraud on AIM and gets a stack of death threats and lawyers letters for his troubles. Just on Tuesday he has published a massive exclusive on Quindell, the biggest London stockmarket fraud for 30 years, and a con the regulators thanked him for exposing. That breaking news is HERE.
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. We'd hope to see more boardroom buying soon but expect also to see more hard news on order flow very soon.
I guess if you write for a website that makes the Official Jimmy Saville Fan Club website seem well read and popular, it forces one to also post on Bulletin Boards in order that your words of wisdom/attempts to ramp your flagging portfolio reach an audience of more than three men and a dog. Speaking of dogs - Watchstone (WTG) is stock which bear raider turned Bulletin Board Moron Evil Knievil has long argued is worth 500p. The shares are now 140p ( and falling) after yesterday's massive revelations from me HERE.
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?
AIM-listed Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO) has released its full Annual Report. Having looked yesterday at a few things I thought it would be worth a second look – especially in the light of a clean audit report from RPG Crouch Chapman. Mea culpa to myself and Tom who expected something different, but hang on a minute…
Another day and another director walks, a new strategy is adopted and yet more confetti is issued by AIM casino uber dog Mayan Energy (MYN), formally the hound known as Northcote Energy. But this latest move just makes no sense at all. Let me explain with a little bit of help from a friend....
I warned you in explicit terms yesterday that the doubling of the Strat Aero (AERO) share price to 0.14p on the back of results which can best be described as a shit sandwich with dollops of jam tomorrow on top, was not justified. The shares have now slumped back to 0.09p-0.11p (TW 7, BBMs 0 once again) but do not BUY now for there are still deluded fools abroad.
Metal Tiger (MTR) has updated on exploration at the Logrosan Minerals joint venture in Spain – helping the shares currently slightly higher to 2.03p mid.
A year ago Ronald Stoeferle stated that we were at the very beginning of a bull market in gold, He was wrong. He says that was stopped by Donald Trump. Gold and commodities are dirt cheap when compared to stocks. Equities, bonds, and real estate are at or near their all time highs. He thinks the dollar is close to rolling over.
In a sense this is not that relevant as Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO) is within a couple of months of running out of cash and going tits up but on a point of principle I have written to the my very good friends at the Financial Reporting Council as there are aspects of Advanced's 2016 annual report and accounts which stink more than a pile of rotting kippers left out at a sewage farm in the scorching midday heat. The letter follows:
A few weeks ago I penned a piece on Blenheim Natural Resources (BNR) in which I was highly skeptical of the recent holdings RNSs from a certain Pershing Nominees/Valbury Capital.
Worthless AIM listed piece of excrement Servision (SEV) always seems to report its results at the last possible moment to avoid suspension on the casino. In 2016 calendar 2015 numbers (piss poor) arrived on the 30 June deadline day. For 2016 its a slam dunk bet that the numbers (piss poor) will arrive this Friday on deadline day. Why is that?
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.
Get the first ShareProphets Pocket Guide ebook, EIS - Buying shares with numerous tax breaks. Want to cut your income tax bill, get loss relief if your AIM listed shares go down, pay no CGT, avoid IHT - EIS could be the way and this book explains how.
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.
