MoPowered Group – A Disaster with Red Flags all over it – Is Death imminent?

MoPowered Group (MPOW) raised a gross £3.64 million at 100p when listing on the AIM Casino on December 18 2013. The shares now stand at 20.5p valuing this POS at just over £3.2 million. And while it says that it is going ahead with a £3.5 million fund raise you’d have to be mad to subscribe as this has red flags all over it. Death is all this deserves.

Quindell & Its Legal Threats to me update…all very odd but I am not gagged! Watch this space!

On 19th August 2014, Quindell’s (QPP) lawyers wrote to me giving me eight hours to agree to withdraw all articles about Quenron, sign a grovelling apology written by them ( how fucking Stalinist) and not to write again. Otherwise I was threatened with a number of measures including injunction and a libel case. I replied within the deadline that I would see the bitchez in Court.

Buy Flybe at 116.5p – price target 250p (short term) 500p (3 years)

Following my recovery play holding of last week I promised to reveal my second private non-oil share this week – here goes it is Flybe (FLYB). This is a perfect hedge for anyone with large oil investments or a recovery play in its own right. It’s a sort of EasyJet in the making with a £250 million market cap -I reckon that should be well over £1 billion.

Financial Video Postcard #51 – China, liars and the failure of AIM

It is clear that a number of fraudulent Chinese companies have been listed in the AIM Casino. And also that a number of non-Chinese companies tell outright lies and also commit fraud.

The sheer extent of Chinese stock fraud on the West revealed & how they do it

You think that the odd China fraud in Germany or the UK is just a case of a few bad apples? Think again. I bring you today an article from Chinafraud.blogspot.ca which lists all the frauds inflicted on American investor in recent years. And also details the nature of the scams. The list is incredibly long and demonstrates quite frankly that there is industrial scale fraud underway. No sane individual would own a single share in any Chinese company listed in AIM – read this and realise why.

US Oil & Gas – More Lies: Target Price 0p

As I have demonstrated on a number of occasions US Oil & Gas (USOP) lies to the sad band of financial masochists on its shareholder list on a serial basis and its CEO young Brian McDonnell is a liar. In that vein I bring you its latest release from Friday which is par for the course. i.e total bollocks.

Alpha Returns and the murky world of Shidu – this stinks

In 2012 Digital Learning Marketplace plc (DLM) was in financial trouble which eventually saw the company restructured into a cash shell. I’ve already written on a placing of shares in Aug 2012 which contravened the Placing Letters, untrue RNS releases, the issue of unannounced loans - in particular a £50k convertible loan issued 1st Oct 2012 which mysteriously survived a CVA which was part of the restructuring and a whole lot more besides.

Low interest rates have created the biggest stockmarket bubble in history

You know that I am an equities bear. So too is Gerald Celente, the well-known precious metals investor. His view is that we are heading for stockmarket disaster as we pump up the biggest bubble in history. This view was clearly explained in an interview he gave to my colleagues at Palisade Capital this week.

How Bulletin Board Morons Deny Disaster – case study Monitise

Thursday’s news that Visa was dumping Monitise (MONI) was quite clearly a disaster. It must have come as a total shock to Monitise otherwise the director who dumped 1.5 million shares at 44p on Monday (good call mate, BTW) would be heading for prison. And it is a body blow as I explain HERE.

ShareProphets Share Tip of the Week: Buy Chapel Down at 28p or 19p if you hurry

English wines and beer maker, Chapel Down Group (CDGP) will within the next week complete a £1 million crowdfunding fundraise at 28p per share. But it is EIS eligible so if you are a higher rate taxpayer you effectively pay 19p and – ok – you have to hold for 3 years – but you will pay no CGT. Frankly this is a nil brainer.

Fair Treatment For Both England and Scotland Should Follow ‘Independence’ Vote

The market certainly liked the Scottish ‘No’ vote on Friday! In fact, my father’s prediction about what would happen in the day came true. He advised me to watch the market and perhaps sell some shares which spiked up after the vote. And indeed, shares did spike. SSE (SSE) shares were up to above 1560p at one stage. They finished at 1523p. Lloyds (LLOY) shares  rose above 77.5p, although they ended at 76.82[. TSB (TSB) shares reached 297p at one stage, before finishing the day at 291.75p. I followed my usual philosophy of just holding onto the shares.

Naibu – a Damning Indictment of the failure of regulation on the AIM Casino

Shares in China fraud Naibu (NBU) bounced to 27p at the tail of the week. That is a dead cat bounce. This is a fraud and the shares are worth 0p. But the episode shows just why regulation on the AIM Casino is such a total joke.

How the Snap Election Will Affect Your Share Prices

Hello Share Pillagers. We all should have known something big was going to happen by the way shares were marked down heavily after the Easter break. On Easter Monday, when our stock market was closed, the US version was open. During that session, American shares rose by about 1%. That usually means British shares rise in tandem, but not this time.

African Potash - the legal case for victims of the fraud almost underway

Before I call it a day I want to see the victims of the African Potash (AFPO) fraud get some of their money back, even if some of those victims were fairly beastly to me as I exposed the fraud. Friday's bombshell from Potash shows the game is up but the big frauds happened before this worthless enterprise was booted off AIM. To that end I have been working to help put together a legal action. That action is now almost underway and Peter Petyt, the man running things, wrote to more than 50 victims who have come forward at the weekend. If you lost money and want to try to get it back it is not too late to contact Peter. His letter & contact details follow.

You are hereby on notice as retail bubbles start to pop

Artificial political constructs never last. The EU is great for the “elites” in Brussels; not so much for the average citizen and the tragedy of monetary union is that Europe's political class has gone to extreme lengths to hold the euro together regardless of underlying economic logic. But this has only perpetuated and exacerbated the coming political crisis. "Monetary union has created a conflict between a centralised elite on the one hand, and the forces of democracy at the national level on the other. This is extraordinarily dangerous,” Mervyn King wrote in his recent book 'The End of Alchemy'.
