Petroceltic its a zero, a 0p - let the blame game get going

Oh dear. You cannot say that you were not warned by this website but those morons who were hoping that they would get at least 3p for their Petroceltic (PCI) shares must now brace themselves for 0p. It is a day of shame for certain City analysts, the board and the morons who, in many cases, were the architect of their own doom.Vindicated I laugh at my abusers...

Point of sale, payment and loyalty systems group Universe (UNG) has announced results for the 2015 calendar year and that “a combination of customer expansion and a broadening product portfolio means that we are confident that the pleasing progress that the group has been made so far can be continued”.

Petroceltic – insufficient valid acceptances for Worldview’s offer, Uh oh…

Having stated its offer for Petroceltic (PCI) was conditional on 90%+ acceptances, Worldview has announced at closing valid acceptances of 54.6% have been received and that resultantly “the acceptance condition has not been satisfied and the offer has lapsed”. Uh oh…

The biggest Lenigas blizzard of confetti ever - have you read the LGO EGM notes?

It rather seems to have passed folks by but having failed to raise £6 million in a placing he masterminded a month ago (as leaked emails show HERE), Jabba The Hutt is still determined to see dilution on an unprecedented scale - even by his standards - at LGO Energy (LGO). There is an EGM on Monday 18 April.

Gulf Keystone 0p by early May - I slash target price from 1p

I am beginning to think that my 1p target price for Gulf Keystone (GKP) is in fact far too generous. Having called this as a sell at 180p and all the way down to abuse from every moron in the land I think it is time to revise the target price. The shares are off another 9% today to just 4.675p. Okay I shall stop being a nice guy, I am cutting my target price from 1p to 0p.

Keras Resources shares tank after trip to Walsall ahead of placing

What on earth made Keras Resources (KRS) boss Dave Reeves travel thousands of miles from Oz to London, only then to head up to Walsall and what happened in the black country shit-hole? I only ask because Reeves arrived in Walsall on Saturday 9th April to do a presentation after which the shares collapsed ahead of a placing announced today. You may not know much about Walsall other than that it is a post industrial shit hole but let me enlighten you.

AIM-China Red Flags at Night: Grand Group boardroom departures

Hmmm, a Chinese company domiciled in the Cayman Islands lists on the Casino and less than sixteen months on there appears to be a bit of a procession going on, with two directors walking the plank with immediate effect in consecutive days. Sound familiar?

Conrad Windham plans stockmarket comeback - the strange world of Flamethrower (v2)

Young Conman Windham has listed at least four companies on the ISDX market which have all proved to be complete disasters for investors. This man makes David Lenigas look like Warren Buffett in terms of value creation. Undetered by serial failure - chronicled here - Conman Windbag is now threatening to inflict a new venture on ISDX, Flamethrower PLC. Natch this is a rum and coke too.

Michael Page May Be Just the Job for Divi Seekers.

Hello Share Squelchers. You may or may not recall that I am a fan of recruitment agencies. This is because there are more jobs in the UK than ever before. Also, if you are looking for employment, going to an agency is probably the best chance you have. As my son found out, they will find you a temporary job . And that comes without your having to be interviewed by the new employer. Then, in many cases, the job becomes permanent and there you are.

After a material profit warning less than four months after its 11th June 2015 £27 million AIM listing, online advertising software company Adgorithms (ADGO) has announced results for the year and that “it is now evident that 2016 will be a year of transition and investment”. What was 2015 then?

CloudTag – Oops!

With apologies for missing this on Tuesday afternoon, I see that AIM-listed CloudTag (CTAG) has issued a rather embarrassing correction to its Monday RNS which announced a fundraising of £171,430 apparently issuing 5,357,143 shares to a new investor….at a price of 3.2 pence per share, representing a premium of 12.3 per cent. Over the mid-market closing price of 2.85 pence per share on 8 April 2016 (the previous Friday).

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast 14 April: Dancing on the graves of Ruspetro & Gulf Keystone

Lucian will be here soon so I thought Id better record ahead of our trip to the Conservative Club with its tempting cheap beer. On the agenda I fail to mention that Finncap are complete and utter bastards but they are. I do, however, cover Ruspetro (RPO), Gulf Keystone (GKP), SeaEnergy (SEA), Rose Petroleum (ROSE), Sierra Rutile (SRX), Burberry (BRBY), Mothercare (MTC), a couple of Paul Scott jokes - please do not tell me he has any friends in the Mothercare management community that he thinks I may be offending - as well as a word or two on Challenger Acquisitions (CHAL)

Fastjet - more bad news from bongo bongo land..the jungle drums play the tits up song

Our resident Fastjet (FJET) owning lunatic Duck & Dive yesterday predicted an RNS from this piece of Turkish imminently claiming that it would show what a "twit" I was with good news. Well D&D was half right there was an RNS. Sadly, for him, it is not good news. Duck remains the twit, I continue to call this one right.

Optibiotix - Hybridan increases its target price to 106p

Hybridan is house broker to Optibiotix (OPTI) and so although I agree with its conclusion this note is clearly biased and feel free to ignore it completely. As for Hybridan, like most brokers. its employees should be strung up with piano wire. But for what it is worth.

Premaitha - all sorts of fun and games: buy

The shares of Premaitha (NIPT) have been all over the shop since what was a cracking year end trading statement on Monday. The reason is the cackhanded disposal of Rupert Lywood's remaining 17.9% stake. We thought he was locked in following his last dump on 9 March and a statement signed off by broker Finncap. Weasel words. His shares were placed by Finncap at just 6.5p with directors taking some and solid institutions Helium, Henderson and Hargreave Hale taking the rest. The overhang is now gone but boy has it crushed the shares. Without Lywood's "assistance" since last summer we think the shares would be 20p today. But he is now out of the picture.

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.

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.

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?
