The Equities First Scandal - Its going to get worse, heads will roll - Tom Winnifrith BearCast Special

The AIM Casino scandal involving Equities First Holdings LLC is going to get an awful lot worse. Heads will roll with Optimal Payments (OPAY) and IGAS (IGAS) firmly in the firing line but directors at Cloudbuy (CBUY), IQE (IQE), Angle (AGL) and ,of course, Quenron (QPP) also exposed. For the latter, at least, this is probably not their greatest concern. The sad truth is that none of the six have said enough and ALL need to clarify the clarification statements. Until they do all six firms are uninvestable. This and specific crmes are examined in this podcast special.

Quindell Bulletin Board Moron of the Day – Tycoon Ted – but sentiment is changing as it does with all frauds

I despair. Quindell “needs to sort me out” – so says Tycoon Ted on ADVFN. Well why doesn’t it launch legal proceedings as it threatened three months ago if I did not shut up and grovel? Or does Ted think it should just have me killed. What do you think Ted? Ted posts:

Reasons to be bullish on gold – the Brian Lundin interview

It might not be fashionable right now but I remain a gold bull for reasons I have explained here many times. As such I agree with many of the sentiments expressed by Brian Lundin, the host of the famed New Orleans Investment Conference, the world’s oldest and most respected gold investment event. That happened the other day and in this interview with my colleagues at Palisade Capital Brian covers many of the themes from the event.

Reader Poll – when will Quindell hit 0p/have shares suspended?

In March this company was capitalised at almost £3 billion, Quenron (QPP) was – according to fraudster Rob Terry – heading for the FTSE 100.  Today, at 68.5p, it is valued at less than £300 million and surely the end is nigh. So when do our readers think that Quenron shares will be suspended and/or hit 0p. The deadline for voting is midnight Sunday.

Kibo Mining seeks project partners

Louis Coetzee, entrepreneurial chief executive officer of Tanzania-focused Kibo Mining (KIBO), says he is talking to 12 companies as he looks for a development partner in the power side of Kibo’s $60 million (£38 million) Rukwa coal and power station project in the country’s south-western Mbeya region. Kibo, which had last year signed a memorandum of understanding with Korea’s state-owned East West Power group about possible participation in Rukwa, is now concentrating instead on a pre-feasibility study, due this month from energy-to-infrastructure specialist Aurecon, of its plan to build a 300 to 350 megawatt power station there.

Tom Winnifrith BearCast Special - Himex the biggest fraud within Quindell

The most fraudulent acquisition made by Quenron (QPP) was that of Himex. It really is a worthless POS but has been used to boost profits and cashflows at Quindell simply via fraud. However it will start to unravel by New Year's day and this podcast explains why. DCD Holdings, Rob Terry, Hassan Sadiq and Elizabeth Dawson are you listening to this Cosy (pun, geddit?) little message from the Sheriff of AIM?

Optimal Payments, Canaccord and the LSE this will not do – lets discuss the market abuse

Yesterday I wondered aloud whether Optimal Payments (OPAY) was going to be the sixth company in the EFH scandal. I was right on the money. The shares fell pretty much through the day, dropping 22% at the close – yet there was no news. All day long. Then after the market had closed, at twenty-one minutes past five GMT on Friday evening  (no-one is watching o’clock, local time) out came this statement:

Jefferies International Limited – Enhancing the Reputation of the Aim casino in true fashion – ref IGAS

Lest it not be forgotten, The AIM casino holds Equities First Holdings LLP (EFH) in such high regard that it not only allowed EFH to sponsor this year’s AIM Awards, but even got one of their number ( the witch Elena Clarici) to sit on the judging panel. What fine, upstanding citizens those fine fellows at EFH must be.

Tom Winnifrith BearCast Special - Quindell just how grim is the cash position?

Right now we are focussing on Rob Terry's lies about share trades and about how he and Fidelity are racing to offload their worthless stock in Quenron (QPP). But there is another pressing issue which is just how grim is the cash position. I put it to you that while Mr Terry's personal bank account might be bulging, back at Quenron the position is dire and that is why Mr 2+2 can = 5 is so keen to offload his stock at almost any price. I explain why the game is almost up.

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 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?
