Sunday Long Reads: Old Celebrity Death, Woe is Venice, Putin’s Tactics, Where the Children are Buried, Sabotaging Carter

Sunday is a good time to sit back, read, and forget about shares. Put the kettle on, find a comfy chair. You have the time, don't you?

How was the large cap investment world in Q1 2023, punk? And how will the rest of the year go?

Barkby – Another AIM Hound Produces A Dog’s Breakfast Of Results

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Andrew Bell insists his imaginary g/f is no April Fool

Did you spot my April Fool story today? I start with that and end with Andrew Bell's imaginary g/f. If Donations to Rogue Bloggers for Woodlarks (currently £2605 + an unbooked £500 pledge) go above £3,000 by Sunday, I will publish photos of her supplied by Bell and she is a looker, if perhaps imaginary). Donate HERE. In the main bearcast I discuss at length UK Oil & Gas (UKOG), the stench of David Lenigas related party deals and the lies of Lyin' Steve Sanderson plus, in detail, the bailout of Genedrive (GDR) at 6.32 PM last night

Hound Catenae Innovation – 2022 Finals A Dog’s Breakfast Plastered With Red Flags

On Thursday AIM-listed Catenae Innovation (CTEA) released its Finals for the 15-month period to December 2022 – just a day inside its self-imposed deadline. At least it got them out as the last full-year and interim results were so late that the shares were suspended, but the numbers from this serial hound were a dog’s breakfast.

Total Market Solutions - gosh this is low grade ramping, yes its Versarien again

The tweet below is the latest pathetic attempt to ramp shares in Versarien (VRS) so that it can get away one last placing before June and avoid insolvency. In pushing the fantasy that the company will soon be awash with grant money David Burton of Total Market Solutions fails to mention a number of critical points.

Ingenta – a business trading momentum and ahead of results again a Buy

Technology and supporting services to content providers and publishers company, Ingenta (ING) has previously been featured on this website – most recently towards the end of last year when we banked a near 40% offer-to-bid gain in little more than two months with the shares at a 130p bid price. That was with the swift gains, though we had targeted 140p+ as the underlying cash generation became clearer and on further earnings/cash upgrades. A subsequent trading update, ahead of results expected in April, has added to our confidence, yet the shares are down to 114p and the following is why we consider 150p+ now realistic.

BREAKING: Neill Ricketts selected as Conservative candidate for Tewkesbury & Gloucester

With time on his hands, many have wondered what Neill Ricketts, the founder and former CEO of Versarien (VRS) will do next. I can exclusively reveal that at a meeting of Tewkesbury & Gloucester Conservatives this morning, Mr Ricketts has been selected as the Parliamentary candidate in what is one of the Party’s safest seats.

As I Said it to Tom 23 Years Ago on National Television: Buy when Shares are Cheap.

Hello Share Mongers. The Footsie has yet to recover its poise after those nasty bank scares in the US and in the land of William Tell. But it will. Because the fact remains that British shares were generally cheap before the bank chaos - and they’re even more likely to be a bargain now. So how do we play it from here?

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: No Giles McDonogh falling house prices is good news

I start with a slam dunk political bet in the wake of Donald Trump's looming arrest - a clean sweep for the Republicans in 2024, as I explained a couple of weeks ago HERE. Then onto why house prices falling at the fastest rate for 14 years ( a misleading headline) are to be welcomed but not if you are long Purplebricks (PURP) or the housebuilders. Not that I'd necessarily go short either. Today's ouzo is sponsored by Asimilar (ASLR). I also cover Genedrive (GDR) and the placing it will not 'fess to although it is clearly underway. Then I look at Pensana (PRE) where yakking on about climate change and hiring stacks of lesbians from Islington seems not to have prevented a bit of a looming cash crisis. How, I wonder, do folks in London N1 describe a fat lady in a woke way? Hey Magna Carta, guess what I forgot to mention today? HERE is a clue

Ben’s Creek - yet more cash goes to Adam Wilson and MBU, another red flag vicar?

There are some folks out there who think that Ben’s Creek (BEN) was established to mine coal in America, albeit from an asset which was last economic back in the 1940s and had sent its two previous owners bust. If you are one such believer I have a bridge to sell you.
