This week`s Most Ramped stocks on AIM June 6 2013

I offer no comment on this weekly feature it is a simple matter of observation. The two tables below show the most active discussions on the ADVFN and iii Bulletin Boards as of a Thursday morning.

Alliance Pharma - quality AIM stock to buy

Specialty pharmaceutical company Alliance Pharma (APH) has today announced an $11.5 million (£7.5 million) acquisition of all existing rights to the ‘Syntometrine’ drug from industry major Novartis. This is part of its strategy of buying in “orphan” brands from majors which it can then monetize by flogging through its existing sales infrastructure.

Noble Investments - interim results, buy

Ostensibly the interim numbers released late last month by AIM-listed collectibles company Noble Investments (NBL) didn’t make positive reading – showing a pre-tax profit down from £2.42 million in the comparative prior year period to £0.504 million on revenue, excluding a £1.39 million contribution from the December acquired Fine Art Auction Group Ltd, 4.5% lower.

Buy Silverdell at 14.5p with a 25p target

Specialist environmental support services group Silverdell (LSE: SID) announced its results for the six months ended 31st March 2013 yesterday.

Buy Cyan Holdings (CYAN): Initial 1p Target

Although it can be seen from the daily chart of Cyan over the past couple of years that the shares and their road to recovery have been peppered with false starts, traps and gaps, through all the noise we still have the fact that 2013 support above 0.4p was a major higher low versus the multiple bear traps over the middle of last year.

6 June 2013, 14:49 | By Zak Mir |

Premier Gold Resources (PGR): The Journey Towards 0.5p Begins

Premier Gold Resources is not a stock which was on my personal radar in terms of potential recovery situations. However, it was offered up to me by a kindly Twitter follower. What can be seen on the daily chart currently is that we appear to be in the run-up to a combination of a bear trap reversal, and a W-shaped rebound contender.

Buy Tower Resources (TRP): Triple Bear Trap Reversal Targets 2.4p

Perhaps more than anything else what gives charting a bad reputation is when what appears to be the perfect formation/pattern then goes and gives traders a slap in the face.

6 June 2013, 14:41 | By Zak Mir |

Buy Cadogan Petroleum (CAD): 200 DMA Break Targets 25p

There are some recovery situations where a great deal of head scratching and soul-searching is required to finally plucked up the courage and press the buy button. However, it would appear that after an exceedingly long wait Cadogan Petroleum as returned as a likely share price revival contender, and done so in style.

African Eagle (AFE): Wings Remain Clipped

It is quite clear from the daily chart of African Eagle in recent months and years that this is certainly not the type stock that dreams are made of, unless of course you are a bear.

Buy Kentz - contract award, value still on offer

FTSE-250 engineering, procurement, construction and technical support services group, Kentz (KENZ) has announced it has been awarded its “largest US contract to date” - this for the Point Thomson gas cycling and condensate production plant in Alaska.

Cupid (CUP): Never Mind The Bollocks

A great album by the Sex Pistols, one of the greatest albums ever, and although Johnny Rotten did not know it of the time, the perfect retort to the latest article on Cupid by Tom Winnifrith.

Greggs Q1 2013: is the 4.8% yield safe?

There is something comforting about Greggs (GRG) the Newcastle based convenience food company;  as reassuring as Geordies cheerfully tucking into sausage rolls, whilst sitting astride a cask of Newcastle Brown to the sound of a brass band playing “Pick ya feet up Geordie Hinnie” - and what is wrong with than man, do I hear you ask?

Gold Price Volatility Continues as Investors Prepare for the Fed`s QE Tapering

The U.S. Comex gold future prices rebounded 0.33 percent this week to $1,397.20 on Tuesday and reached almost $1,408 during Wednesday Asian morning. The S&P 500 index is flat this week after falling 1.14 percent last week.

Enables IT Up 15% - Something afoot?

Shares in AIM listed tech stock Enables IT (EIT) are ahead by 15% at 40p today prompting suggestions that something is afoot. That would come as something of a relief to shareholders in the company formerly known as Nexus which has been a serial disappointer.

5 June 2013, 16:26 | By Zak Mir |

Proteome Sciences (PRM): Technical Target Now Stretches Towards 100p

Perhaps the saddest back about UK pharmaceutical companies is the way that while we all hope they will blossom into the next Glaxo or the next Astra, too many of the minnows have fallen by the wayside.

5 June 2013, 16:12 | By Zak Mir |

Buy Neos Resources (NEOS): Significant Support Down To 0.4p

While picking stocks that are creating a buzz on the bulletin boards is always a fascinating pursuit, as most of us are aware, it is not necessarily a path to riches. Indeed, there is a risk that the buzz is just as likely to be flagging a sharp break on the downside, as it is to the immediate prospect of a mega rally.

Sefton Kansas Statement – The Normal Rubbish – Tick Tock Tick Tock on the cash front

Sefton Resources (SER) – the AIM Cesspit company that is suing me for libel – has served up May output data from its Kansas operations. At least we will not have to suffer much more of this rubbish as it is 20 seconds to midnight on the great cashburn clock. Tick Tock Tick Tock.

Noricum Gold (NMG): Former 2011 Support Target At 2p

I have to confess that one of my best calls of the year-to-date in Noricum Gold was not actually a situation that I found myself on a charting basis but actually flagged to me on a fundamental basis from the newsflow when the shares were below 0.5p.

5 June 2013, 14:42 | By Zak Mir |

IGas Energy (IGAS): Technical Target Towards 160p While 95p Holds

Shock, horror we have a down day for IGas Energy shares. The question now is whether after all the media hype, which has been almost universally favourable, the shale Gold Rush play can live up to expectations? From a technical perspective it would appear that it can, after an appropriate period of cooling off and consolidation.

Anglo Asian Mining - Buy at 35p with 50p target

Last week I noted that, at 28.75p, shares in AIM-listed gold producer in Azerbaijan, Anglo Asian Mining (AAZ) looked a compelling investment but that, with sector sentiment dire, significant patience would likely be required.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Why Paul Scott's fucktard follower will always lose & should you sell all your oil shares?

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.

Luke Johnson speaks up for we terrified entrepreneurs

Those with a golden ticket will also get to hear him in conversation with Nigel Wray at the Saracens evening the Wednesday beforehand - that will be a battle of the pizza men, a real treat - more details HERE. In his Sunday Times column last weekend he echoed my post-election gloom about how we entrepreneurs should feel terrified - HERE. It is brilliant stuff.

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.

Mitie Is No Mouse at Cost Cutting and Finding New Customers

Exclusive: The full Slater & Gordon High Court Claim against Watchstone for £537m - damning on Rob Fielding, David Curry & the lies Quindell told

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.

Saffron Energy - The City's No 1 oil analyst Zac Phillips sticks his knife in and he has a point

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.

Concepta - CEO buys a not un-trivial amount of shares: Follow suit

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.

Bulletin Board Moron Evil Knievil still wrong on Watchstone

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.

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?

Advanced Oncotherapy - letter to Financial Reporting Council re uber dodgy accounts

Servision - how do you keep lots of idiots in suspense? We'll tell its shareholders on Friday

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?
