Tom Winnifrith Bearcast 25 April - In a very bad mood

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.

The People's Assembly Workshy Bimbo caption Contest Winner

"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:

Andalas Energy: Where's the RNS? Justin the Clown now homeless thanks to rule breaker Whitby

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....

You want one gold stock to buy but what? Ten experts say it should be...

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?

St Ives – “Trading Update” + shares down 45% = you guessed it…

“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 goes bust - why Sir Philip Green's brand of capitalism is not acceptable, he should be made a pariah

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.

Is Current Monetary Policy Sowing-the-Seeds to Crisis?

"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,

Ouzo O'Clock already: Dragon's Den flop Piers Linney admits Outsourcery is almost toast!

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.

Bushveld Minerals – suspension, proposed RTO, questions

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.

Treat Yourself to Saturday's UK Investor Show - and Possibly Save Thousands of Pounds.

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.

Rob Terry must be a psychopath - complete denial of wrongdoing in the Quindell fraud

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.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast 24 April: More Brexit lies as fraudster Rob Terry breaks cover: why?

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.

Biggest Risk For Gold Investors Is To Not Be Invested

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.

Rob Terry says he made £30 million from the Quindell fraud - another lie

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.

FastForward Innovations – 3 reasons why I can’t invest in the Lorne Abony show

Average Person has ZERO Exposure to Precious Metals; That Will Change

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...

Tory Minister John Whittingdale, the porn star, the hooker and now the bung, is it from disgraced businessman Sean Nutley of Silverdell infamy?

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.

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.

Saffron Energy - The City's No 1 oil analyst Zac Phillips sticks his knife in and he has a point

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.

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

Concepta - CEO buys a not un-trivial amount of shares: Follow suit

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.

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?
