Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: cutting a deal with the IRA man and is it okay for Amur to tell a slam dunk fib on AIM?

I start by explaining the result of that deal, viz me being a sweaty wreck. Then it is onto Rurelec (RUR), Tingo (US:TIO) and Amur Minerals (AMC). Finally, if not too hungover tomorrow I shall aim to do a 20+ miles training walk,, my last training walk for the June 17 Rogue Bloggers for Woodlarks. If you are among the 92% of bearcast listeners yet to donate, please do so HERE. In advance I thank you.

Rurelec – Some Good News Or Time For An Ouzo?

Long suffering shareholders in AIM-listed Rurelec (RUR) had some good news this week in the form of a special dividend. But it was for just 0.2p per share and the company now has six months to make an acquisition or face suspension and if no transaction is found during the following six months it will be booted off AIM.

Vesuvius plc – a markets recovering Buy?...

Describing itself as “a global leader in molten metal flow engineering and technology”, a recent trading statement from Vesuvius plc (VSVS) included that its end-markets recovery pace “remains slow and uncertain”, but that they have started to recover from a low level of the end of last year and that its current trading is ‘ahead of initial expectations’. With this adding to confidence of its performance as its end markets recover and a good dividend yield whilst we wait, at a 417.8p offer price and up to 420p, we consider the shares a Buy.

XPS Pensions – positive full-year trading update, Buy

Recommended in May at a 167p offer price, UK pensions consulting and administration group XPS (XPS) has since stated that it “is pleased to provide its post-close trading update (unaudited) for the year ending 31 March 2023 ahead of its full year results expected to be released on 22 June”. With the shares currently slightly up, how ‘pleasing’ was the announcement?

Is London Really Losing its Financial Clout? If It Isn't, Shares could Rocket.

Hello Share Hoarders. One reason many shares have been either stuck or falling, is a concern that the London Stock Exchange might be losing its importance to the world. A personal example is that a good friend in London’s insurance game has just been transferred to New York. But the perception that the London Stock Exchange is no longer the best home for companies could be slowly eroded. What does this mean for share shifters like us?

Mirriad Advertising – “pleased to announce” equity raise result…as it bails it out. But not for long!

Previously writing on company which describes itself as a “leading in-content advertising” business Mirriad Advertising (MIRI), last month with the shares up to 3.8p I wrote “collaborates with Microsoft” ramptastic desperation as funding crisis further nears”. Quelle surprise – there’s now discounted equity raise news.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Oh no, the IRA man has another go at me

I start with the IRA man who is hopping mad at me yet again. Then I look at how the whole political/media class should be in the dock in the Covid enquiry as they all called for what has caused our inflationary crisis. Then it is Tingo (US:TIO), a detailed look at Audioboom (BOOM), Purplebricks (PURP), Versarien (VRS), tern (TERN), Chill Brands (CHLL) and the regulatory threat to UK vaping. Finally, my last big Rogue Bloggers for Woodlarks training walk this Sunday will be c22 miles. It will be very hot this weekend and I have a thirsty Irishman here for supper on Saturday so may be somewhat the worse for that on Sunday morning, so think of real pain ahead and leave the 93% who have not donated & meanie Magna Carta and make a donation HERE

Pelatro – emphasises “large contract” win, but what about the bottom-line financials?

Describing itself as a “customer engagement hub software specialist for enterprises”, Pelatro (PTRO) states that it “is pleased to announce that it has been awarded a large contract for campaign management solution by a Middle East telco with operations in multiple countries”. What though of a share price currently more than 23% higher in response at 8p?

BREAKING: Now Gabriel Grego goes short Tingo - he knows about companies claiming "net cash"

Gabriel Grego has just tweeted that he has shorted Tingo (US:TIO) joining other bears such as Fraser Perring, Lucian Miers and a stack of US bears who all see this as a zero. Natch mug punters have responded with abuse as they always know better, especially as Tingo is drowning in cash and auditors never get that wrong do they? Er..

IQE, Drew Nelson and the scumbag scallywags at Equities First – another sordid chapter of pretence

Equities First holdings offers a service where CEOs of companies where the CEO knows the stock is going to tank, pledge shares to EFH in return for a loan at c65% of the value of the shares. We exposed this scam back in 2019 when EFH first open up shop in Britain. EFH ALWAYS dumps the shares on day one so locking in a neat 50% profit and when the shares tank the directors are faced with a margin call and default.

Video: The Inevitable Death of Fiat Currencies & why the entire British political class caused soaring inflation

Author and analyst Rafi Farber is an economist who is pf the Austrian School so his observations on money printing should not be that surprising, even if his conclusion is a bold one. He speaks as the debt ceiling issue hits the headlines. Again.

Cohort – trading “slightly ahead of expectations” and positive outlook, BUY

Technology for defence and related markets company Cohort (CHRT) has issued a trading update including “trading performance for the year ended 30 April 2023 is slightly ahead of expectations on higher revenue” and “closing order book of over £325m (30 April 2022: £291.0m)”.  That sounds like good progress then.

Amaroq Minerals – Q1 results and outline of workplan, STRONG BUY

Amaroq Minerals (AMRQ) has announced first quarter 2023 results and outlined its workplan for the year. So what of the shares currently at 40p?

Ocado beats British Land to be the FTSE 100’s lantern rouge!

Five days ago, I wrote an article titled “What happens when Ocado falls out of the FTSE 100?”. As John Maynard Keynes, not somebody I frequently quote, said “in the long run we are all dead”, and my guess would be that Ocado (OCDO) will struggle to stay a FTSE 100 stock for the rest of this year, let alone beyond. And how did the now sub £3 billion market cap business survive in the FTSE 100 this time? Because the £3.2 billion market cap British Land (BLND) fell out instead.

Eurasia Mining – a fortnight to “all the money’s gone for this £80 million joke?

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast - it is Tingo-tastic day

With two exposes today it is a Tingo (US:TIO) - tastic day for me. I discuss why I am so interested and why this is a zero. Then it is onto More Acquisitions (TMOR), Westminster Group (WSG) and its scallywag chairman Tony Baldry. Then Ascent Resources (AST) and Amur Minerals (AMC), finally I look at the pretence I expect to be announced tomorrow by Supply@ME Capital (SYME). Finally, Andrew Bell's imaginary g/f is real! I have spoke to er and she WILL join the Rogue Bloggers for Woodlarks on June 17. More on the fragrant Mercie later, please do donate HERE

Tingo threatens the bears with legals (again) so here is something from Google to explain about Tingo's 9 million supposed customers

Tingo (TIO) reckons that its shares collapsing is all down to a New York broker pretending to do a placing and to “of false and malicious allegations on certain bulletin boards, social media accounts and websites” so it has called in its lawyers. Again. Just to assist I have another oddity for the lawyers to have a butcher’s at.

Silver Bullet Data Services – 2022 results argue “highly encouraged by the developments being made”. Er, what about the balance sheet?!

‘Provider of digital transformation services and products’ Silver Bullet Data Services (SBDS) states that it “is pleased to announce its unaudited preliminary results for the year ended 31 December 2022”. So what of a current share price response to 32.5p…down more than 24%!?

Has Predator Oil & Gas got a water problem in Morocco?

BREAKING: Tingo – so where are the 9 million claimed customers in Nigeria? Lets check out facebook!

There are folks out there who still think that Chis Cleverley and Darren Mercer have ignored the habits of a lifetime and created a real business in Tingo (US:TIO) and that its fully diluted billion plus bucks market cap undervalues the story despite Lucian’s damning dossier HERE. Well here is something for such folks to consider: where are Tingo mobile’s 9 million supposed customers? I present to you a series of screenshots.
