Alpha Returns gets a prod from Companies House – but this is a symptom of ANOTHER AIM Casino scandal breaking

I noted in my article HERE  that the company formerly known as Digital Learning Marketplace plc (DLM), then Shidu Capital plc (SDC) and is now called Alpha Returns Group plc (ARGP) has a subsidiary called Shidu Investments Ltd, which filed just an abbreviated balance sheet as its annual accounts to April 2013 under a smaller companies exemption. But as part of a group of companies containing a plc this exemption does not apply. I wondered why the board of Shidu Investments had seemingly broken the rules: was there something to hide?

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast Special - Maple Energy: EFH type share deals, bankruptcy looms & 7 questions for Cenkos

Hat tip to the Deputy Sheriff of AIM for spotting the strange events at Maple Energy (MPLE) a true AIM Cesspit posterboy whose hapless Nomad is - as it happens - Cenkos, the tossers who represent Quindell. Share transactions undertaken by former CEO Tony Hines have a strange Equites First Holdings LLC look to them although they may not be with EFH. In this podcast I look at the nature of those transactions, the reasons why Hines quit and the financial trainwreck that Maple is today. Maple has the smell of death about it. I therefore have seven questions for the poltroons round at Cenkos.

Gold & Gold Equities rally - how much further could the rebound go?

IGas takeover of Dart Energy – is this why the company and hapless Nomad Jeffries are refusing to “clarify” the deal with Equities First?

In January 2014, IGAS (IGAS) announced that its CEO had transferred shares in the company to Equities Frist Holdings LLC as security for a loan. We have asked several times for clarification on this because the EFH contracts we have seen all show that the transfer is of title and voting rights.

Optiobiotix – a share tip that is flying (gain to date 120%) – more to come

We tipped shares in Optiobiotix (LSE:OPTI) just a few months ago at a 9p offer. Knock me down with a feather they closed Friday at 20.75p-21.25p. But the fun is not over yet. We urged you strongly a week ago to buy at up to our limit buy price of 15p as the last chance to get in cheap. We hope that advice was taken even if you ignored the original tip.

Tom Winnifrith BearCast - Roble sinned but did not break the law - Quindell committed crime

Lets nail this Roble issue in a short podcast. The hedge fund shorted Quindell (QPP). There was a deliberate event to avoid transparency which I argue is wrong. But no laws were broken. The laws need to change. On the other hand Quindell and its Board have broken numerous laws. That is the issue. Bulls keep playing the man not the ball. It will not save Quenron

Salamander Energy End Game

Today’s announcement of Ophir’s bid for Salamander Energy (SMDR)  comes with a price tag (115.9p a share) which is less than one hoped for however given the curse which is upon this company at present and the new 30% collapse in oil prices post my original tip (HERE) I believe this is the best outcome possible. The ofer is 2% ahead of my original tip, no disaster but this is clearly a disappointment.

Alecto adds new project

Africa-focused explorer Alecto Minerals (ALO) has bought another gold project in Burkina Faso, to add to its interests in Mali, Mauritania and Ethiopia. The London-based company, which recently appointed as chairman City veteran Mark Wellesley-Wood, who once sought to revive Cornish tin mining, is acquiring the Kerboule gold project in the West African country’s Djibo gold belt, near fellow AIM counter Avocet Mining’s Inata gold mine, in a deal which chief executive officer Mark Jones suggests ‘is capable of delivering significant returns.’

Rob I have already accrued a £10,000 consultancy fee for that can you be a good fellow and post me a cheque with a small portion of your ill-gotten gains. Now what next?

Attending the Albion VCT Seminar Series Part Two

There were a decent number of speakers at this seminar, starting with Richard Young a Director at BVCA Manchester. He started with some general comments on the UK economic outlook which were accurate but you will already be aware of what is going on. Unemployment is falling, but real wages are at most only holding ground and probably decreasing. Here is an interesting quote:

African Minerals – Kerching for the Bears it’s tits up time at no-one is watching O’Clock

Given the heaps of abuse I took for calling this one as a nil (that is to say worth 0p) HERE and HERE and several other times on BearCast, I may be forgiven for having a celebratory ouzo today as African Minerals appears to have bitten the dust. Needless to say “its tits up time” was announced at no-one is watching O’Clock , 5.36 PM.

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?
