Fair play to (pro tem, albeit currently suspended) DiamondCorp (DCP). The news is bad but at least the company is being plain about it. Of course, we have to throw in the obligatory “you can’t say you were not warned” ShareProphets catchphrase, as the writing has been on the wall for months, but yesterday’s after-hours RNS looks to be the cue for a long and arduous aria.
Hello Share Hikers. It’s been my view for yonks that companies which make and sell greetings cards are possibly cruising for a bruising.
These share tips cannot wait. Events are moving fast. We expect shares in both companies to start racing ahead within days and those who follow our tips to be sitting on gains of 50%+ as a result. And so we will publish two new emergency share tips this afternoon ( Tuesday 9th May) at 2 PM sharp.
The April edition of the UK Investor Show Magazine is live featuring Metal Tiger, BMR, Harley Investments, Action Hotels and much more.
On MySQUAR (MYSQ), Cynical Bear has previously warned of rampers and pumpers being out in force. Having commenced May at sub 1.3p, the shares are currently more than 60% higher on the day, at above 4.5p, on the back of a “Significant Revenue Milestone and Product Update” announcement. Hmmm…
I was horrified to read a really vile article on this website yesterday by pizza Hardman Darren Atwater which showed that, like the other metropolitan lefty elitists who run the Labour party, he has an undisguised contempt for the working classes. And folks like Darren wonder why such folks are voting Tory?
Hornby (HRN) has updated that “further to its announcements dated 10 April 2017 and 25 April 2017… on 8 May 2017 it received a letter… withdrawing with immediate effect the requirement for the company to proceed with convening the requisitioned general meeting”…
Tom Winnifrith keeps reminding us that frauds, like Labour Governments, always end up running out of other peoples’ money. And that brings us to the Chocolate teapots of the FCA which have been exposed in an excellent piece in The Daily Telegraph as having spent enough to keep a couple of nurses on shift for a year to have its logo redesigned….to almost identical and equally pointless window-dressing for its website and corporate communications. Why not spend the cash on catching criminals? I am reminded of images of yester-year of swanky new deep-pile carpets in the hospital chief executive’s office whilst patients waited for years to regain mobility offered by a hip replacement.
He gets much wrong, but I take my hat off to the old bank robber as he has got Andalas Energy (ADL) shares suspended today by revealing that it was trying to get away a bailout placing at 0.05p-0.06p. Dan has compared Andalas to " a crock of shit" but his assessment is unfair. Unfair on a crock of shit that is.
Last week Nyota Minerals (NYO) was “pleased to announce” a placing to raise up to approximately £93,880 (approximately Australian$120,000) at 0.02p per share. Despite this thus looking very much a ‘keep the lights on’ raise, the shares have currently reached 0.07p. Hmmm…
Great news from Sepura (SEPU) this morning as the rollercoaster deal with Hytera continues with the announcement that the UK government seem minded to allow the deal to proceed. Just the pesky Germans to deal with now. I feel the skills of Dean Gunnarson are needed now. Who’s Dean Gunnarson you might ask, quite understandably. Well, read on….
Even here, half way up a Greek mountain in the snakefields, word reaches me of a major fundraising being undertaken at 1p by UK Oil & Gas (UKOG).
Hello Share Moochers. After I commended IQE (IQE) the shares have gradually improved, now by some 200%. I very much considered taking profits. Only one thing stopped me last week: the thought that surely some predator had the Cardiff company in its sights. I’m now glad I didn’t sell for a different, more tangible, reason. The case to buy more shares gets better.
A “Significant Project Completion” announcement sees shares in MediaZest (MDZ) currently around 30% higher on the day. Oh, it’s a “Non-regulatory”, RNS Reach ramparoonie (Oops, sorry) ‘announcement’…
“Eckoh plc (ECK), the global provider of secure payment products and customer contact solutions, today issues a trading update for the year ended 31 March 2017. The board of the company confirms that trading for the year ended 31 March 2017 was comfortably in line with market expectations”. Hmmm, what about the September announcement that “it is expected that the company's pre-tax profits for the year to 31 March 2017 will be below market expectations and is expected to be in line with the performance last year” though?...
Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO) has announced that NED and highly respected senior clinical oncologist at Great Ormond St and Barts Dr Nick Plowman “will” invest £250,000 in the company – at 30p a share, a 36% premium to last week’s close. Why am I not convinced that this morning’s announcement is anything other than the most desperate of spoofs in a long line of spoofs here?
Palisade has been a perma bull of gold. We think that its target for the yellow metal is er..optimistic. But we are bulls and anyone without material gold exposure - c15% - is, in our view, bonkers. Anyhow from Palisade a reminder of the bull case.
Presently the markets are blissfully ignorant of the threat that imminent global central bank tightening poses on risky highly valued assets. Despite the market’s current perceived calm facade and low perception of risk, the vast chasm that lies between perceived risk and reality is greater than ever before.
It's congratulations to a longtime poster, first-time winner whose contributions have been almost exclusively on ShareProphets.
The May edition of the UK Investor Show Magazine is live featuring three share tips from Gary Newman, the Greek meltown is worse than everyone thinks, and the EU is not fit for purpose plus a photofeature from the 2017 UK Investor Show.
The busting of a placing by AIM-listed UK Oil and Gas (UKOG) at 1p by Tom Winnifrith has caused a bit of controversy. It is not the first time he has been accused of being irresponsible by blowing the lid on a placing only for it to be pulled or the price dropped. Anyone left holding the baby gets their fingers burned – in the recent example quite badly if they had been buying into the ramp at north of 1.4p only to see the company raise cash at just 0.8p. Is it right?
The nauseating Mail on Sunday fawned upon Pippa Middleton and her ghastly family as they celebrated the "wedding of the Year". Bring on the revolution! But perhaps the real wedding of the year should be between our two very own in-house Bulletin Board Morons GrannySnuffs & Wildes who seem made for each other. can you find examples on the LSE Asylum, iii, ADVFN or twitter of comments more idiotic than those of our own dream team? If so post in the comments section below, the deadline is midnight Sunday 28th May.
Having bought itself some time by declaring an initial sack-the-board General Meeting requisition “invalid” (a revised, valid requisition announced by it at an attempted ‘no one watching o’clock’, 5:15 pm, on Friday), Infrastrata (INFA) has this afternoon made a “Review of stategic options & project update” announcement...
AIM-listed travel agent and wannabe Greek holiday resort developer Minoan (MIN) announced a small bolt-on acquisition this morning….and a placing. Oh, and an update on its debt facility due to expire at the end of June. It is disappointing to see a placing (at 9p), but in the general scheme of things it is a relatively small amount so the pill is sugared to some extent.
It was a keen competition this week. But we have found a winner.
Take a look! European investors are clearly failing to grasp the very significant financial and commercial benefits available for Orphan or Rare Disease drug developers. So much so in fact, that sector-focussed Amryt Pharma (AMYT) finds no quoted peers in London, yet a good basket of NASDAQ-listed comparables are seen to command a significant premium despite mostly being pre-revenue and somewhat earlier in their development. Such anomalies can and, of course, do rapidly correct.
Any reader of my pieces will know I hold Challenger Acquisitions (CHAL) in pretty low regard but the outrageous ramping that has now gone on for the last four trading days is an absolute disgrace and the FCA should take a look. I’ll explain.
I have already covered the dire financials of Eden Research that indicate it is just months from trading whilst insolvent as well as its panning by the Financial Reporting Council (FRC) - in response to my urgings. Now to today's monstrous half truths - I am perhaps being 50% too charitable in that description.
Eden Research (EDEN) has today published godawful results and admitted that my very good friends at the Financial Reporting Council (FRC) investigated it - after I requested such an investigation - and have forced it to restate past numbers. It claims that the FRC has now settled all matters. Au contraire. that is another lie from the fraudsters and there are many more porkies in this statement. Truly, the pants of shamed PR Paul Queenie McManus of Walbrook will be cinders and ash after this effort. This all came out as Eden published Godawful numbers for calendar 2016.
The sold-out success that was the 1st April 2017 UK Investor Show again saw five 'Dragon's Den' sessions where a number of CEOs each gave a pitch and three Dragons each picked one stock for a £1,000 investment. How are they faring so far?...
With some great investigative journalism of which this website would have been proud, Brokerman Dan flushed it out a few weeks ago. The former bank robber - correctly - stated that Andalas (ADL) was looking to raise £1 million at 0.06p and the AIM listed crock of shit suspended its shares. Today they are unsuspended after the company raised £600,000 at 0.1p. It says this is at a premium to the suspension price. But it is a spoof, Andalas is still bust. It is insolvent as of today!
Malcolm Stacey is old enough to know about King Canute. In fact he is so old that he was there as a boy when the King sat in his chair on the beach and attempted to turn back the tide. Malcolm surely you remember the day as if it was yesterday? In which case why do you forget this valuable lesson when it comes to Inmarsat (ISAT) and your article today in which you misquote me and get it wrong in so many other ways.
"A credit crunch is brewing and when it happens, the UK is going to get hurt." These are not my words but the start of the Editorial in this weekend’s Guardian. The article then went on to say "That is the message emerging from senior executives in the financial services industry, who do not think Britain has changed that much since the 2008 credit disaster and the devastating crash that followed. Three developments lie at the heart of this disturbing analysis: spectacular growth in the sale of second mortgages, car loans and credit cards." I would heartily agree with these comments as this is my experience too. But what the article fails to say is that the UK is not alone in this debt bubble - once more it is a Global issue.
Hello Share Scoopers. There have been quite a few occasions now that I’ve commended a Footsie satellite company to your attention. On each mention, as I recall, the share grew in value. However, last year the shares took a big knock.
One of the most fascinating scenes I’ve seen for some time is the sight of Big Donald jigging around with some sort of weird entertainment put on by the Saudi’s for the President's visit. It almost made me forget the big benefit of this amiable state visit on share shifters like us. And that of course is that the President’s friendly reception sent the oil price up.
An announcement from Corero Network Security (CNS) with a headline “Corero Tier 1 Internet service provider customer GTT Communications, Inc. launches DDoS Mitigation service”. Then “further to the announcement on 19 April 2017 regarding a Global Tier 1 Internet service provider customer win… announces that the customer, GTT Communications, Inc. (NYSE: GTT), has launched its DDoS Mitigation service”. “Global Tier 1” now hey! And you what? The contract win has already been announced? Ramptastic…
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.
