Cineworld Group (CINE) has updated on trading for the 46 weeks ended 13th November 2014 “in line with our expectations” and “remains confident of delivering results in line with market expectations for the full year”. Good News
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?
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 and gold equities have enjoyed a three week rally. But will it fizzle outor does this rally have legs? That is the question that technical analyst Jordan Roy-Byrne answers in this podcast produced by my colleagues at Palisade Capital.
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.
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.
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
Copper and mineral sands hopeful Savannah Resources (SAV) has agreed to take a big chunk of another copper project in Oman, while raising £1.3 million from investors at a discounted 4.45p to spend both on Oman and on its Jangamo heavy mineral sands project in Mozambique.
From the FCA's spreadsheet of short positions required to be disclosed to it, the following details the most shorted shares (by total net short position %) and if this total position has increased (red), reduced (green) or remained unchanged (black) since a previous analysis HERE ('Position Holder''s in bold appear in the table more than once).
Hello Share Fanciers. I become a little embarrassed from time to time by the fact that I keep bringing to your attention shares which I already own.
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.
It may not be loved right now but I remain a big bull of gold. My colleagues at Palisade Capital this week interviewed industry veteran Brent Cook who reckons that 2015 will be the year of peak gold and explains why.
As noted earlier by Tom Winnifrith, the identity of Roble S.L. (as well as other shell companies Fest N.V., Blau GmBH and Fresco S.R.L.) has been revealed (as being the work of New York hedge fund giant Tiger Global). The following looks at how its FCA-declared UK shorts have performed and its currently disclosed short positions here.
It ia hard to be mean to anyone today given how splendid Greece is looking, how warm it is and how relaxed I feel. But if you insist...it is time to take a detailed look at Coms. I also cover bear squeezes, Quindell, Beacon Hill and African Minerals
Today’s news that China cut interest rates has been well received by the stock market. The FTSE 100 rally continues, the UK index has now retraced 80% of its previous decline and has regained the levels above the 200-day moving average.
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.’
So far my cunning plan to help Rob Terry get as much cash as possible before the Quindell (QPP), cough, cough consultant goes to prison is working brilliantly. I advised him to resign HERE and he duly took my advice. 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?
Symphony Environmental Technologies (SYM) has announced it has raised £1.28 million from issuing new shares at 10p, a more than 20% PREMIUM to the prior share price and, conditional on 19th December General Meeting approval, the raising of a further £0.295 million at the same share price and a possible further more than £1 million – the latter at a more than 80% premium to the 8.25p closing mid-price of the shares before the transaction was announced. This good share tip is looking even better!
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:
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.
The June edition of the UK Investor Show Magazine is live featuring three resource shares to buy, two more share tips, a voting guide for investors, and where to emigrate if the wrong party wins a special offer expiring on June 14 and much more.
Queenie smears journalists and spins for all the worst companies on the casino from fraudsters Eden to Advanced Oncotherapy to Norfolk's finest Fusionex. He truly is a posterboy for AIM and thus a fitting sponsor for this week's contest. The challenge: We're looking for exemplary examples of sheer stupidity from those founts of brilliance; the Bulletin Board Morons who dwell on the cesspits that are LSE.co.uk, III.co.uk and ADVFN.co.uk. The deadline to post your entries in the comments section below is midnight, Sunday 2 July.
Slater & Gordon (SGH) spunked £649 million on buying the worthless, fraudulent assets of Quindell (QPP) in 2015, a deal that has seen its shareholders suffer a 99% wipeout. It has now filed a UK High Court claim against Watchstone (WTG), Quenron as was for £637 million and we have obtained the papers and, in a major scoop, publish the Claim in full below.
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. In recent weeks the shares have slithered back towards that 5p and I have been urged by folks to re-tip. I resisted that urge. Something was wrong. Now we all know what some folks have clearly known for a while, what the problem is.
It has taken more than two decades and exposed the Greek planning system for the total joke that it is but Minoan (MIN) now has the all clear to go ahead and develop the spectacular Cave Sidero site in North East Crete.
You may know Tom Winnifrith as the man who exposes fraud on AIM and gets a stack of death threats and lawyers letters for his troubles. Just on Tuesday he has published a massive exclusive on Quindell, the biggest London stockmarket fraud for 30 years, and a con the regulators thanked him for exposing. That breaking news is HERE.
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.
I guess if you write for a website that makes the Official Jimmy Saville Fan Club website seem well read and popular, it forces one to also post on Bulletin Boards in order that your words of wisdom/attempts to ramp your flagging portfolio reach an audience of more than three men and a dog. Speaking of dogs - Watchstone (WTG) is stock which bear raider turned Bulletin Board Moron Evil Knievil has long argued is worth 500p. The shares are now 140p ( and falling) after yesterday's massive revelations from me HERE.
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?
AIM-listed Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO) has released its full Annual Report. Having looked yesterday at a few things I thought it would be worth a second look – especially in the light of a clean audit report from RPG Crouch Chapman. Mea culpa to myself and Tom who expected something different, but hang on a minute…
Another day and another director walks, a new strategy is adopted and yet more confetti is issued by AIM casino uber dog Mayan Energy (MYN), formally the hound known as Northcote Energy. But this latest move just makes no sense at all. Let me explain with a little bit of help from a friend....
I warned you in explicit terms yesterday that the doubling of the Strat Aero (AERO) share price to 0.14p on the back of results which can best be described as a shit sandwich with dollops of jam tomorrow on top, was not justified. The shares have now slumped back to 0.09p-0.11p (TW 7, BBMs 0 once again) but do not BUY now for there are still deluded fools abroad.
Metal Tiger (MTR) has updated on exploration at the Logrosan Minerals joint venture in Spain – helping the shares currently slightly higher to 2.03p mid.
A year ago Ronald Stoeferle stated that we were at the very beginning of a bull market in gold, He was wrong. He says that was stopped by Donald Trump. Gold and commodities are dirt cheap when compared to stocks. Equities, bonds, and real estate are at or near their all time highs. He thinks the dollar is close to rolling over.
In a sense this is not that relevant as Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO) is within a couple of months of running out of cash and going tits up but on a point of principle I have written to the my very good friends at the Financial Reporting Council as there are aspects of Advanced's 2016 annual report and accounts which stink more than a pile of rotting kippers left out at a sewage farm in the scorching midday heat. The letter follows:
A few weeks ago I penned a piece on Blenheim Natural Resources (BNR) in which I was highly skeptical of the recent holdings RNSs from a certain Pershing Nominees/Valbury Capital.
Worthless AIM listed piece of excrement Servision (SEV) always seems to report its results at the last possible moment to avoid suspension on the casino. In 2016 calendar 2015 numbers (piss poor) arrived on the 30 June deadline day. For 2016 its a slam dunk bet that the numbers (piss poor) will arrive this Friday on deadline day. Why is that?
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.
