Santa’s Little Helpers – Comments section uncovers more on Equities First share sales

ShareProphets has some intelligent people leaving comments on the articles written. The IQs must be about 2 Standard Deviations higher than that of a chat room poster, to judge by the response I receive, and the commentators’ research has sometimes been better than mine.

Christmas Party Invitation from Tom Winnifrith to Rob Terry of Quindell

Tonight is the Real Man Christmas party and please do not let it be said that I am a bad winner or do not have sympathy for my fellow man even if that man is a liar, fraudster and insider dealer like Rob Terry of Quindell (QPP). And so I have just dropped Mr 2+2 can = 5 an email.

Quindell Bulletin Board/Twitter Moron of the week (5) – winner announced

Once again we were inundated with entries for the Quindell Bulletin Board Moron/twitter moron of the week contest. I was almost tempted to give a retrospective prize to this comment from March from a Mr R Terry of Hants “The only question is whether Quindell goes in the FTSE 100 or the FTSE 250, a main market listing is just a tick box exercise.” Rob that was a stormer but this week’s entries were even better – you can see all of the madness HERE  And so to the winner.

Savannah Resources. Is it pumped up or are there real resources?

Today I look at a bulletin board favourite Savannah Resources (SAV), a mining tiddler operating out of Oman and Mozambique. Investing in mining companies is as much fun as shooting yourself in the foot at the moment so is Savannah that special diamond in the rough or is this a case of SAVe yourself.

Insider Dealing added to Rob Terry’s Rap Sheet – Canaccord quits Quindell: Terry going to prison, Quindell to 0p

Rob Terry you are a liar, a fraudster and now I also accuse you of insider dealing. I shall not rest until you go to prison you low life vermin criminal. For today we discovered that you and your FD Laurence Moorse and NED Steve Scott sold vast numbers of Quindell shares while withholding price sensitive information – that Canaccord, your joint broker and sponsor of your failed main market listing application had quit.

The Exceptionalism of iGas, and the lessons of Morris v Equities First, LLC

Forget today’s news that a well has been spudded in some grim Northern welfare addicted hell hole. Let’s deal with the real issue here. On Friday 14th November iGas released a terse announcement: “IGas Energy notes the recent movement in its share price and confirms the detail contained in the statement on 16 January, in respect of Andrew Austin's facility with Energy First Partners LLP, is full and correct disclosure for the purposes of the AIM and Disclosure and Transparency Rules.” But it was not.

Quindell Bulletin Board/twitter Moron Competition - Week 5

It is Monday 10 November 2014 and I am on a high, Quindell shares are tanking after a quite disastrous admission forced out of it by a great team effort from a number of writers at ShareProphets. And there is worse to come for Quenron. In the absence of any hard drugs and needing to stay sober ahead of a presentation tonight at Real Man  on "Quindell the End Game" I can celebrate only by playing the Real Man 80's collection loudly and singing along. I apologise to our neighbours in Clerkenwell. Next up is "Stand & Deliver" How apt. Post presentation tonight I shall be on an uncontrollable celebratory roll. I digress... by popular demand this contest is back.

Open Letter to AIM Regulation– Do Closed Periods mean anything to you or will you “fire” Joel Leonoff of Optimal Payments

Joel Leonoff, the CEO of Optimal Payments (OPAY) misled investors by selling shares (i.e. transferring title and getting cash) to the hoods at Equities First Holdings LLC. That should be a hanging offence. But worse still he made the transfer when Optimal Payments was in a closed period and so when no directors should trade. Do AIM Rules mean nothing or will AIM regulation Publicly censure Joel or, even better since this is a double offence, force him to stand down at once. I have written a letter to AIM Regulation on this matter.

Equities First Stench: Pledging shares for loans issue spreads to main market ref. Telecity, Partnership Assurance Group & Perform Group

Over the weekend, the issue of directors pledging shares for loans has spread from AIM to the Main Market. It is too early to say if anything untoward has happened, but next week we shall seek urgent clarification from Telecity (TCY), Partnership Assurance Group (PA) and Perform Group (PER) concerning arrangements made  by directors of each company with UBS AG, over the course of 2014. In each instance (linked to in the RNSs above), it appears one director has used part or all of his respective holdings as security against loans received from UBS. There is nothing to suggest any rules have been broken, but, in light of the developing Equities First Holdings LLC scandal, the appropriateness of such transactions is now in question. Urgent clarification is needed from all three companies first thing Monday

Memo to HMRC re Robert Simon Terry of Quindell

Al Capone was never prosecuted for his real crimes, it was the tax man who got him. I shall be making dam sure that for his lies and fraud Rob Terry of Quindell (QPP) does not get off so lightly. However I am equally concerned that all directors of the AIM Companies who have done deals with Equity First Holdings LLC do not try to avoid Capital gains Tax on the shares they have sold. A formal note on all of them will go to HMRC in due course but pleasure before business, let’s start with Robert Simon Terry of Quindell. This article will be sent to HMRC.

Weekly Financial Video Postcard #59 - Quindell shareholders I forgive you all, here is some friendly advice

The past six months have seen a small minority of Quindell (QPP) shareholders hurl at Tom Winnifrith an unprecendented volley of abuse, death threats and attempts to destroy his business.  Tom says that he forgives even those who sent death threats and has a genuine sympathy for all of those holding shares in this fraud as they face wipeout.  In this video Tom explains why he feels sympathy for every Quindell shareholder (Rob Terry excluded) and offers genuine advice for them all on what to do on Monday morning.

The AIM Awards dinner, Cannacord, Equities First and the stench grows by the day

Each year a sell-out dinner takes place attended by over 1300 AIM company directors, Nomads, brokers, accountants, lawyers, analysts, people from the financial PR and investor relations industries and the media. It is the largest AIM gathering in the City calendar, according to the AIM AWARDS website, http://www.aim-awards.co.uk . Lots of mutual back-slapping goes on as they ‘celebrate outstanding achievement on the world’s most successful growth market’.

Equities may be up but the world remains unbalanced

A month ago global equity markets were in a state of complete panic.  Four weeks later markets are substantially up, sentiment has hugely recovered and investors are generally looking forward again to 2015…especially in the US.  Despite the market recovery of recent weeks the world remains clearly imbalanced.  That’s not to say there are now things to be doing and the technology, food retail and gold sectors were of particular interest to me this week.

Tom Winnifrith BearCast Special - Quindell cash Crisis, The Sunday Times - Suspension Monday?

The Sunday Times has today unearthed evidence of the cash crisis at Quindell (QPP). Listeners to bearcasts here will not be suprised by this news. So what does Quindell do now? Will the sad excuse of a Nomad that is Cenkos let it respond or must the shares be suspended at once. In an angry and hard hitting podcast I lay out what lies ahead as the shit hits the fan and the shares become worthless. 0p is in sight. Events are now moving at light speed, the word "vindication" is on my lips.

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.

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?
