Want to know why shares in On Line (ONL) the company with no realisable assets and a small overdraft so NO CASH TO INVEST but which is run by ADVFN boss Clem Chambers - soared from c19p to 81.5p today? Natch go to the man twice recognised as the share blogger of the year by ADVFN, Brokerman Dan. The great man opined on his blog:
Updating earlier this month on KEFI Minerals (KEFI), we noted it is the Tulu Kapi gold project of imminent interest – and the company has this week made a “Large Exploration Program for Tulu Kapi District” announcement…
We own shares in Obtala (OBT) and think they are cheap so why not give a wider audience to a broker buy note. Okay VSA is the retained broker so it is 100% biased so feel free to ignore it completely. But for what it is worth...
Shares in On Line (ONL) are - as I record - up c350%. Is this peak blockchain insanity or is Clem Chambers simply the greatest spoofer in the history of mankind? What happens next is the big question. Then I look at murky share dealings in Mkango Resources (MKA) by market abuser and serial fantasist Chris Oil. Does he not care about TR1 rules at all? Then it is onto Lombard Risk Management (LRM) where I have 2 more questions about its overdraft but a very big question about how the silky words of Phil "InterX" Crawford on July 19 tally with the utterly shite H1 results. Does Nomad Finncap of Telit (TCM) infamy care? I suspect it does not. I look again at BCA Marketplace (BCA) - THE BIG SHORT - in light of recent macro data. It remains a stupendous short. I look at management greed and an impending placing to fund that at Arian Silver (AGQ) and then at the dire interims from System1 (SYS1) and profits alert from Attraqt (ATQT). It is the former which remains a stonking sell even after today's share price collapse. And I have a question or two for AIM dog Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO).
This is not going to get the shares soaring, but it is further affirmation of the technology that Optibiotix (OPTI) owns and which it is showing an increasing ability to monitise.
Declaration One: This has not been a cracking tip so far. Declaration two: this is the second time we have tipped it and the first time we banked big gains. We will again. Declaration three: both FIML and my one year old son Joshua and also my pension own a stack of shares. We will not be selling until they have almost doubled from here and we all got in much lower. A recent trading update was a bit of a curate’s egg but on balance, not that the share price reflects this, it is good news from Wishbone Gold (WSBN). The key point is that its gold trading operation Black Sand FZE is now receiving full volume shipments from its new supplier in Mali.
Writing on Vitesse Media (VIS) in August with the shares at 2.75p, I concluded that with it placing ahoy and the results having shown increased losses, for now I’ll be avoiding. The company has now announced results for its half year ended 30th September 2017…
Hello, Share Swoopers. Back in the mists of time, I was keen on shares in the gaming industry. The shine went off when I discovered nearly all my investments were plunging down the wrong path. At the same time, another company to let me down was Zoo Digital (ZOO), which I stupidly thought was a designer of games. It’s not. It had revolutionary ways of producing dvds for the entertainment industry.
Sadly it is half term so that weekly treat with Joshua is postponed for another seven days. Instead I look at Magnolia Petroleum (MAGP) as its shares hit new all time lows: boy that share consolidation worked well did it not? Then it is onto Challenger Acquisitions (CHAL) which is utterly fecked but why is boss Mark Gustafson not filling his boots with shares at 1p when he bought so ostentaiously at 20p+? Then it is onto Cloudbuy (CBUY) which needs to fess up on its cash position, or rather lack of it. En passant I cover the spoof at On Line (ONL) and also revisit my earlier piece on AIM going underground.
At the end of last month we noted from marble quarrier in Kosovo and the Balkans region Fox Marble (FOX), with the shares then down to circa 7p, disappointing interim financials but some reasons for optimism. The company has now since followed a $500,000 receipt from a sales agreement with a “First consignment of marble to Marble Dino” announcement...
I previously wrote on Kin Group (KIN) in August; From dire to ‘kin worse; administrators to be appointed for principal trading business & proposed CVA - including commenting on the company stating “there is no guarantee… will be completed successfully”, with it’s got to be ‘kin joking, right? Is “successfully” what, at best, further mega dilution is? I now note a “Suspension update & proposed share consolidation” announcement…
I’m always wary of companies that have seen a large hike in share price, especially smaller ones in the natural resources sector, but in some cases the rise would appear to be justified by recent news.
A top broker, who shall remain nameless, has this morning had a go at AIM regulators. His ire is prompted by a meeting in a pub where Berkeley Energia (BKY) presented to retail investors. It was by all accounts packed which, since I am a loyal shareholder, pleases me. But I just do not understand what is wrong here.
Following a positive share price performance since late last month-announced results for its year ended 30th June 2017, with there also subsequently a “Contract Extension” announcement and the shares last closing at 1.15p, there is now from Zinc Media (ZIN) an announcement of a “Proposed Acquisition and Placing to Raise £3.5m” - at 0.90p…
A dead cat bounce is that last flicker of life, a brief rally, in the share price of a company that is clearly firmly on its way to the knackers yard. Intelligent Energy (IEH) is a case study - yesterday afternoon saw the final wipeout confirmed but ahead of that some folks were buying the shares insisting that "it will be different this time". It never is.
I would not want to play poker against ADVFN (AFN) and On Line (ONL) boss Clem Chambers. The man has pulled off a blinder of a spoof this morning with On Line which has sent its shares soaring by 50%. It is all bollocks but I take my hat off to Clem anyway for pulling off such a classic spoof.
Yesterday at almost no-one-watching-o’clock (4.12pm), AIM listed eternal jam-tomorrow pain-today play CyanConnode (CYAN) posted a director declaration RNS. It being issued at 4.12 in the afternoon suggests an announcement other than routine, and when we look at the details we see information which surely should have been released one day short of six months ago!
Hello, Share Sorters. Sellers of clothing are not flavour of the month at the mo. That honour seems to fall on miners and oilers, as commodity values and the oil price goes up. Share-shifters are now concerned that consumer spending power may falter in the wake of inflation and consumer debt.
IQE (IQE) is being hailed as “the next ARM Holdings” - you can see the bull case from my pal Paul Scott HERE. But if this is correct it would mark a major turnaround for a company that has been around for nearly two decades without generating any shareholder equity.
I have to tip my hat to the various brokers and advisers involved with EVR Holdings (EVRH) that have managed to place £15 million of stock with various UK and US institutional investors today. That’s a great effort with still no sign of the Melody VR app launch and the two founders have managed to cash in £5 million out of that too.
Another day, and another set of expenses claimed by Julie Meyer MBE as being "on company business" from Ariadne Capital Limited, now in administration. Staff who were paid late or not at all, investors who have lost everything and the HMRC who will surely see these as more benefits in kind on which Julie should have paid tax, will be horrified. Natch this document has gone to the HMRC. This is October 2014 and is a retail special. Although the Co-op entry, 11 October, is a total hoot.
Oh dear Julie Meyer. This document below which has dropped into the hands of the Winnileaks service is already with one of the FOUR investors in your companies who is suing you and he is adding it to his case. It will be with the FCA and MFSA later today for it indicates a wholesale fraud on your part. It is dated 13 November 2017.
I start with confirmation that Brokerman Dan and I really are doing a Horse Hill to Woodlarks charity walk on 28 July. Are you free and would you like to walk too? If not just give us your cash ( as Dan used to say in different circumstances in the old days). More details here I then comment on the latest year on year newspaper circulation stats (below) - what is happening, why and what it means.
When Sosandar (SOS) listed on AIM at 15p late last year, the forecast was that sales in the year to March 31 would be £1 million. Now we learn that they were £1.34 million. How many companies beat forecasts by that much in their IPO year? This is a special company as anyone who watched the two birds who run it HERE will know. This is not just about sales. It gets better for we loyal shareholders...
Oh dear. Two grovelling letters from tax evading Julie Meyer have come to me via Winnileaks. It seems that her US assets ( 2 flats) are now under lien to the taxamn (the IRS) as Julie forgot to pay any Capital Gains Tax on the sale of First Tuesday in 2000. She is now begging for a payment plan.
It is just over a month since I updated on my trawl to find big dividends which might be safe in a market environment where I don’t see much upside and plenty downside. Having originally settled on BT (BT.A) at about 225p on a yield of just shy of 7%, I added ITV (ITV) at the last count, paying 143.7p. That puts its dividend at 5.4%, although it went ex-dividend before I bought. Meanwhile I finally succumbed to the attractions (as I saw them) of Centrica (CNA), paying 142.95p ahead if its final dividend. How are things looking?
A “Business Outlook Update” from computer vision technologies company Seeing Machines (SEE) - following an announcement on Wednesday of “Australian Distributor Expands Guardian Commitment” and on Friday of “European Commission Agenda Affirms SEE Tech”, which together saw the shares up from 6.6p to 8.55p. Surely good news then…
As we saw earlier, Julie Meyer has told the US taxman, the IRS, to who she owes vast sums, that her only source of income is - illegal - director loans from Ariadne in Malta. Unfortunately that is a lie. Because, thanks to Winnileaks, you can see below a letter from a Swiss company Vestergaard where Julie is a director detailing her pay in 2017. Check its website and you'll see she is still a director. Ooops, I bet Julie hopes the IRS don't find out about that. Sadly for the devout Christian...
The People’s Operator (TPOP) is one of a number of AIM companies where you have to wonder whether there is really any point in it continuing to stay in business, other than generating fees for its brokers.
As we saw earlier Julie Meyer MBE appears to have forgotten to pay any tax on the Capital Gain she enjoyed when selling First Tuesday 18 years ago. Sadly for her the US tax authorities at the IRS have caught up with the devoutly christian tax avoider but are not demanding all their cash at once because it appears that poor Julie really is flat broke. Thanks to Winnileaks I bring you a filing Julie made to the IRS.
If Italy’s neo-anarchist "Grillini" had combined with anti-euro Lega nationalists two or three years ago to form an insurgent government, it would have set off panic in the bond markets. Yet now that this is upon investors, risk spreads have barely moved as Bond purchases by the European Central Bank and negative rates have enveloped Italy with an enormous comfort blanket as most investors think there is no chance that the ECB will let Italy go down, because it is the end of the European project if that happens.
As I head off to Greece later this week it will be to start training at altitude in the Taygetos Mountains. Only kidding. But i have been taking to the gym and starting some modest walks. I really do not want to be shown up too badly on 28 July when Brokerman Dan Levi and I walk from Horse Hill to Woodlarks.
Hello Share Strikers. In recent weeks, nay months, I’ve advocated buying shares in the big oilers, like Shell (RDSA) and BP (BP.). I was very lucky here. And I still think there’s some way to go, with the price of Brent Crude once again at the top of the tree.
Andalas Energy (ADL) is a company that even after its recent placing has NEGATIVE net current assets of $1-2 million and no assets of any value. I think it is worthless but its management wishes to meet me to explain why I am wrong. Hmmm. Well for starters I am a hermit who never goes to London other than for UK Investor and secondly I simply will not meet until the company answers four questions and it is still refusing.
As the winner of the 2017 Dragon's Den – grand prize, a free trip to anywhere the #73 bus goes, bus fare not included - I have a a reputation to protect. So there would be absolutely no reason to do a check in on how the 2018 leaderboard is doing.
AIM-listed, Houston headquartered, Cayman Islands registered oil/gas play Frontera (FRR), whose operations are in Georgia (and if that’s not a Red Flag….) has confirmed gas flow rates from its Dino-2 well in the Taribani complex. It flowed at 315 bbls per day – well, at least part of one day. Apparently that’s commercial, but I doubt shareholders can count their winnings just yet.
Amazingly, the cash shell that is Standard Listed AIQ (AIQ) – with somewhere around 8-10p per share of cash and nothing else – has again returned from suspension this morning. The shares, having peaked (ahead of the last suspension) at 150p to buy are now in free fall, sitting on a spread (last seen) of 80p (to sell) to 130p (to buy). I have no hesitation in recommending a sell – there is, after all, only 8-10p of value here. What does surprise me is that there has been no official comment whatsoever from the company – or, indeed, anyone else.
