This morning LGO Energy (LGO) admitted that US investors were - after all - not going to spunk $20 million on bailing out the debt ridden, AIM listed disaster story. I can reveal that a plan B is now underway. Jabba The Hutt is back in town...
Hello Share Fanciers. Car designs do not change very much. Apart from the electric hybrids, the petrol driven technology hasn't really altered since they first hit our roads at the end of the nineteenth century. And now motors nearly all look alike.
A statement today from the disgraced AIM rule breaker, Dave Whitby of Andalas (ADL) - formerly ramptastic CEB Resources - begs a stack of questions. Not least is "how soon will Andalas go bust?". The rampers may love this but this bonus podcast sees me fire off a raft of queeries for Dave, his army of advisers and for this POS company.
A 1:43pm “Trading Update”. Uh oh. And yep… “Messaging International Plc (AIM:MES), a provider of converged messaging products and services announces that one of its large mobile customers has informed the company that it will terminate the Text to Landline Service provided by TeleMessage, the wholly owned subsidiary of the company, effective 22 March 2016”. The following reviews…
You know that things are tough when even those firms that are paid money to ramp hapless shares on the AIM Casino cannot bring themselves to do so with any conviction. And thus I bring you the latest note from Equity Development that is the piece of crap heading for 0p, FastJet (FJET). It is what ED does not say rather than what it does say that is so horrific.
Oh dear. Things look uber-bleak for serial money burner and AIM Casino disaster story Phorm (PHRM). Its shares are suspended pending discussions with potential investors because it is again out of cash. But has it told those mug punters the bad news from Russia? Methinks not.
Rob Proctor, CEO of spoken-word audio platform, Audioboom (BOOM) states “I and the team are obviously delighted with our progress during Q1. With the appointment of commercial directors in the USA, UK and India, combined with increased activity of the Cumulus media sales team, I believe that Audioboom is now acutely focussed on the key elements of its business, allowing it to target revenue growth and long-term profitability for shareholders”. The shares though are currently down more than 10%, at 3.125p. Hmm…
KEFI Minerals (KEFI) has announced that the Tulu Kapi Gold Project in Ethiopia could be expanded from the initial 115k oz pa to around 150k oz pa by developing the underground potential of the project. Broker Brandon Hill ( house to Kefi and therefore so partial as to be ignored completely) says that the market cap of c$15 million ( at 0.4p) compares to a revised NPV of Kevi's share of Tulu Kapi of $150 million.
It is International Women's Day and I ponder how to celebrate now that the Mrs has cooked my breakfast and been made aware that my West Ham shirt needs cleaning. Then to the markets. Solgold (SOLG ) announced its placing last night - as I flagged it would at the weekend HERE - next up is Rose Petroleum (ROSE) where I flagged up the timing of the placing it must surely announce soon 90 days ago HERE. It is just about doing the bloody maths. I have a detailed look at Audioboom (BOOM) and then have a new message for the disgraced failed CEO pig that is Richard.Chase@NyotaMinerals.com. My other podcast to which I refer on why the sordid deal with Turkey MUST make you vote for Brexit is HERE
Gulf Keystone (GKP) has announced that the $15 million gross it announced it was getting on 19 February has arrived which is good news. The bad news, and boy it really is bad news, is that cash post payment is just $56 million.
Last year in ADVFN's financial services awards the share blogger of the year was Dan Levi, Brokerman Dan, aka the business partner of ADVFN head honcho Clem Chambers. Natch I was gutted not to win so what about this year. Shucks. The awards were announced this morning and once again I am not even mentioned. Double shucks.
I’ve been noticing a lot of chatter on Twitter about a small AIM investing company called Onzima Ventures (ONZ), so I decided to take a closer look to see if all the fuss was justified!
Hello Share Plungers. Miners have had a really bad time of it. But the thing about bad times is that there are cycles at work and bad times can become good times. The tragedy is that recoveries only rarely equal and, even more unusually, exceed pre-crash levels.
A sickening email arrived at ShareProphets Towers regarding AIM-China Filthy Forty play Origo Partners (OPP). It begs all manner of questions and casts a dark shadow even by Filthy Forty standards. Who got all the money?
Receiving the baton from Cynical Bear we now continue the detailed series on the 100% rum and coke that is AIM Casino listed Craven House Capital (CRV). Now let's turn to Ceniako.
Watchstone (WTG) has offloaded another of the joke/frauds bought during the Rob Terry era to its management at a stonking loss. The sale of Quintica for £1.35 million is good news for Watchstone but shows once again what a crook the fraudster Rob Terry was.
In the race to 0p who will win? After today's statement FastJet (FJET) is in the running as is LGO Energy (LGO), PetroCeltic and XCite Energy (XEL) which also had news today. I also look at Plethora (PLE) and the idea of something which is too good to be true. Then I move onto Richard.Chase@Nyotaminerals.com - if you have not emailed the greedy useless mother yet PLEASE DO SO NOW. I offer up a suggested form of wording for your email. Warning/ Bad language alert.
And yet again the Bulletin Board Morons take something of a battering because they thought they knew better. This time it is - essentially bankrupt - Petroceltic (PCI), shares in which have this morning been suspended pending clarification. Ooops a daisy.
The Brexit vote is a distraction and we are in danger of the distraction of reorganising the pebbles on the beach whilst a great tsunami bears down behind us. Rather than focusing on whether or not we should remain in Europe, the decision should be more about how we participate and ultimately shape the economic grouping that will come after the Euro single currency breaks up and the European community has to become more accountable and economically functional.
Omce again Trinity Exploration (TRIN) has persuaded the banks not to bull the plug on its borrowings until March 11, at least. But that is not the real story accoriding to broker SP Angel and the meaning of its comment today should be clear to all. At 3.125p SELL.
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.
