According to a report in China Daily Europe a new wave of Chinese company listings are [sic] expected in London as the London Stock Exchange ramps up its efforts to attract Chinese firms. With the stench of the ShareProphets AIM-China Filthy Forty in full nauseating flow, seemingly unaddressed, my heart sinks.
Banks have had a torrid time over the past few years, and few have been hit quite so hard as Standard Chartered (STAN), but this could present a longer term buying opportunity.
Okay the photo is from tree huggers but WTF is going on at Horse Hill. Men in whote protective suits arriving on the site and wandering around. Doing what exactly? Perhaps you'd like to suggest what the men in white coats are looking for at the Gatwick Gusher? Over to you. David Lenigas, Chris Oil, PR genius Steffi ( who works for both), anyone involved in Sefton, menacing PR hardman David Bick, Andrew Bell, shareholders in US Oil & Gas are all fair game. Do your worst in the comments section below. Deadline midnight Sunday
Has all the hard work by the PR fucking genii at Citigate Dewe Rogerson been successful? I refer not to the hard work of not being able to spell the name of clients properly, or of smearing journalists as racists to ensure that they really can secure great coverage for clients. Instead I refer to how much bottom line value the fascists added for their listed owner Huntsworth (HNT). Let’s look at Citigate’s results as disclosed in Huntsworth Plc, its parent company, 2015 results just published on Tuesday.
The lying market abusing little criminal twerp is behind bars at last as the photo below shows clearly. Don't hold back in today's caption contest - post your entries in the comments section below.
Hello Share Pickers. You don’t need me to tell you that shopping habits are changing. Yes, the days of going shopping are still with us. The great British public regard it as its number one hobby.
Shares in Sirius Minerals (SXX) have slipped back sharply since the annnouncement of the DFS for the North York Moors Potash mine. They now trade at 15.5p. But then then a slew of gushing broker buy notes pre the DFS pushed the stock up a lot. I personally would not get too fixated on short term movements.
As we have noted before, everyone round at Citigate Dewe Rogerson are PR fucking genii. That is especially those working on the Fastjet (FJET) account Angharad Couch, Eleni Menikou and Nick Hayns. You have to be a PR fucking genius to issue a release for your client when you can't even spell its name correctly as the screen shot below demonstrates. Fastjet may be a company heading for insolvency but at least its crack PR operatives are all fucking geniuses and any suggestion otherwise will result in an angry phone call with threats of libel suits, lawyers letters and a suggestion that you are a racist Greek hater.
Gianni Kovacevic is driving a Tesla across the US and promoting his book, ‘My Electrician Drives a Porche’. Contrary to popular belief the car only takes 30 minutes to charge, on long term trips the Tesla takes no more time than a conventional car. The age of the electric car is finally upon us.
Ariana Resources (AAU) has followed a recent announcement of a doubling of the resource estimate for its Kizilcukur project with news that a “recent drilling programme at Kepez West has confirmed the presence of a significant mineralised system”.
To the Bubble boys 5 nil, To the bubble boys 5 nil, To the bubble boys 5 nil. That great Bubble Sir Stelios has Fastjet (FJET) and its fascist bully boy PR scumbag operatives at Citigate Dewe Rogerson realing. Naturally I start with this. The heroic Sir Stelios makes me even more of an admirer of all things Greek. Well almost. I look at Hellenic Carriers (HCL) and also at Gulf Keystone (GKP) and Northern Petroleum (NOP).
Leading retailer and manufacturer of PVCu replacement windows and doors to the UK homeowner market, Safestyle (SFE) has announced results from a“record” 2015 and that so far this year “order intake has been significantly ahead of the same period in 2015 and the board looks forward to further progress in 2016”.
“Surface Transforms (SCE) is pleased to announce a conditional equity fundraising of up to £5 million… The net proceeds of the fundraising will enable the board to pursue its strategy of having the capacity to supply the commercial volumes which may be required by automotive OEMs… as well as fulfil their existing commitments to the company's aerospace and other customers”. Hmmm…
This morning saw a most interesting “Holding(s) in Company” RNS from Red Flag strewn ShareProphets AIM-China Filthy Forty play GTS Chemical. Now perhaps all is completely above board and we are looking at an unfortunate coincidence. Or perhaps the company has just announced that its CEO has been offloading shares. A clarification is surely needed.
Shares in Plexus Holdings (POS) are a significant faller today despite its latest announcement being a “Well Order Signed with Det norske, Norway” and this following an announcement of a “Russian Licence Agreement” and that its “Malaysian JV Wins First GBP0.9M Well Order”…
Fastjet (FJET) has today threatened legal action against Sir Stelios Haji-Ioannou after he published an open letter to the company suggesting it is heading for insolvency and revealing alarming data on load factors garned from "secret shopping" which Fastjet has bee hiding from investors. Naturally I agree completely with the analysis of Sir Stelios. His letter is below:
Hello Share Tusslers. Spaggers recently asked me on this magnificent website to have a look at one of the alternative banks. Banks that are not among the big four British banks with their less than impressive recent history. So why not put under the spotlight Onesavings Bank (OSB).
Imagination Technologies (IMG) has announced “an acceleration of its restructuring programme” and that “the group will undertake asset write-downs as well as record a number of contract and tax provisions”. The following updates with this coming after a dreadful profits alert last month…
I start with two matters from yesterday's Budget which I neglected to mention in my otherwise excellent post Budget podcast HERE. The I move not to Sirius Minerals (SXX), which I shall cover in a seperate article elsewhere following a chat with Chris Frazer which left me quite impressed, but to Sirius Petroleum (SRSP) which is a dog with fleas and whose placing today stinks. Then it is onto Wandisco (WAND), Gulf Keystone (GKP) - where are my fucking apologies from the morons? - Audioboom (BOOM), Challenger Acquisitions (CHAL) and the uber perma dog Sareum (SAR) before I engage in a lengthy discussion on Fitbug (FITB) another perma dog.
As a bear of Gulf Keystone (GKP) since 180p, I note that the shares are now just 11p after the publication of results which are at every level just a disaster - even today this is a storming sell. Where to start?
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.
