AIM-listed provider of voice and data telecommunications services in the UK, AdEPT Telecom (ADT) has announced it has signed an agreement to acquire approximately 3,000 business customer contracts from Bluebell Telecom Ltd for an initial approximate £2 million...
I previously commented on this website on AIM-listed collectibles company Noble Investments (NBL) in June – concluding that the shares looked a good long-term investment (see HERE). They had however dropped back from the then 220.5p to sub 200p before a Monday-released trading statement from the company. The following updates…
The U.S. Comex gold futures fell for six consecutive days and ended at $1,282.60 on Tuesday. During Asia Wednesday morning, the gold futures fell a further 0.40 percent. The prices have already dropped over two percent this week while they went up 7.25 percent in July, the best month after January 2012.
I previously commented on FTSE-250 constituent Greggs plc (GRG) in April HERE when the shares were trading at 420p. I concluded then that the stock did not look particularly attractive given that key headwinds the company was facing showed little sign of abating any time soon. This has been borne out by results for the first half of the 2013 calendar year from the company today – which have seen the shares fall to just above 400p, capitalising it at just over £400 million. The following updates…
Fully-listed specialist motor finance and home credit provider in Britain, S&U plc (SUS) has updated that “it continues to trade in line with market expectations and intends to announce its interim results on the 25th September”. The following reviews…
For three years Sefton (SER) has strung its shareholders along, getting away a series of fund raisings, claiming that a report on how to transform the (dire) economics of its Tapia field, written by a certain Dr Ali was imminent. It never appeared as promised.
After thirteen inglorious years of bluster and swagger, Pursuit Dynamics (PDX) finally disappeared from our screens yesterday having sold its entire business for £50,000. Apart from the company’s founder, John Heathcote, who sold out some years ago for millions, pretty much everyone lost out on Pursuit.
George Osborne’s father in law who thinks that ‘fracking’ should be confined to desolate places could well have suggested the Anglo American (AAL) company share price, which has looked pretty desolate until quite recently. Not long ago
Mr resource investment Eric Sprott does not mince his words. In this remarkable interview he says that 80% of mining juniors are absolutely worthless.
In his weekly video postcard Tom Winnifrith discusses Sefton and the abject failure of AIM regulation – he urges Sefton shareholders to sue the LSE. He also discusses gold and the disconnect between physical and paper markets and overall stockmarket trends and sentiment.
Fully listed CPP Group (CPP) shares have rocketed to 16.5p in what infamous short seller Evil Knievil describes as “the biggest bear squeeze I have ever seen”. Evil, aka Simon Cawkwell, remains short and expects the shares to collapse, but admits that they could easily go higher short term.
Shares in AIM-listed provider of enterprise resource planning software, hosting and managed services K3 Business Technology (KBT) have nudged approaching 3% higher today, to 114p, on the back of an announcement that the company has secured the first phase of a new order for its Microsoft-based 'Gemstone' AX product with “a major UK garden centre chain”. Following my analysis of the company on this website last month – when the shares traded at 101p (see HERE) – the following updates…
Commissioned researcher Edison has today published an upbeat note on fully listed Anglesey Mining (AYM). It argues that in uncertain times the company is well placed to deliver returns for shareholders.
Shares in specialist commercial lender GLI Finance (GLIF, formerly Greenwich Loan Income Fund) have fallen back to the level (49.5p) at which they were added to the income portfolio of the 'Nifty Fifty website which I co-edit' in December. This follows a second quarter trading update from the company and subsequent research update from Edison late last month. Is there still income value here?
VSA has changed its mining analyst but still rates Archipelago Resources (AR.) as a gold stock to buy. In a note published today it argues that the shares are worth 58p each.
AIM-listed provider of technology focused on increasing revenues and improving guest experiences in the attractions and leisure industry, Lo-Q plc (LOQ) yesterday announced that non-executive director, Anthony Bone, had sold £600,000 of shares at an average of 600p each (taking his shareholding to 201,517 shares) “in response to significant institutional demand”. This follows another director selling £1.5 million of shares last month at the same average price with the same reason given. The following reviews…
Leyshon Resources (LRL) has released a report covering the second quarter of 2013 - which emphasises that it remains “well placed” to continue advancing its exploration and appraisal of the Zijinshan gas project in central China. So are the shares a buy? Yes.
Shares in Red Rock Resources (RRR) now trade at 0.39p but are worth 2.77p-4.24p according to a detailed note published today by Edison updating investors on the sale of Red Rock’s Greenland assets. Edison writes:
The U.S. Comex gold futures have dropped close to one percent since the FOMC meeting on 31 July and ended at $1,310.80 on Thursday. During Friday in Asia, the gold futures have faced further selling pressure before the U.S. payrolls data.
Proper fund managers are not interested in small cap AIM companies worth sub £20 million. As such if you run such an enterprise and wish to raise money you have 2 choices and both need you to ramp your stock and that means fleecing the Bulletin Board Morons.
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?

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.
