International provider of audio visual equipment and services to the live events, broadcast and entertainment industries, Avesco Group (AVS) has announced results for the three months ended 30th June, reflecting “difficult trading conditions” and seeing it “now believe that it is likely that the group's results for the full year to 30 September 2013 will be below previous market expectations” But!
International specialist staffing company SThree plc (STHR) last week updated on its third quarter, ended 25th August. This led me to update HERE and the following adds the views of the company’s brokers to this…
It seems that the market mood is changing and the next beneficiary could be AIM listed Obtala Resources (OBT) – the hot money is buying and reckons that the shares will rocket from 6.625p in the middle today.
I met up today with Sally Schofield, the executive chairman of AIM listed Edenville Energy (EDL), and Rufus Short, NED, in the wake of today’s publication of a scoping study on the Rukwa coal project in Tanzania.
Following my letter to Pinsent Masons senior partner Chris Mullen on Friday there must be a lot of head scratching round at the bunker of the bully buy lawyers to Sefton Resources. Can Pinsents continue with this case without falling foul of the regulators at the SRA? I think not. Is it enjoying the publicity? I know not. As such…
With gazillions of shares in issue and on the back of a terrible run for the sector the share price of Victoria Oil & Gas (VOG) has been free falling from 6p since July 2011. But…
An open letter sent today to Chris Mullen, the senior partner at Pinsent Masons. I shall keep you posted on the response.

Shares in international specialist staffing group Empresaria (EMR) presently trade at 32p-35p on the back of the company’s results release for the first half of 2013. Having added the shares to the Penny Share portfolio of my Nifty Fifty website at a 28.5p offer price in January, the following reflects my current view.
International specialist staffing company SThree plc (STHR) has updated on its third quarter, ended 25th August, noting “a sequential improvement in our performance over the second quarter, led by Contract and our newer sector disciplines” (Energy and Pharma & Biotech). However, ...
Some of London’s hotter small cap players have, I hear, been having a nibble at AIM listed Paragon Diamonds (PRG) and reckon that the shares are set to rocket on news next week. At 4.875p the company is valued at £11.6 million.
I tipped Sound Oil (SOU) on 17th May at 7.875p. The shares are now 11.5p. Not bad. But things are moving along nicely. The company announced on 4th September some pretty good news.
I first looked at holding company of life and pensions businesses, Chesnara plc (CSN) on this website in May HERE – concluding that at 245p the shares looked an attractive investment proposition, particularly for income seekers. The following updates post interim results from the company at the end of last month and subsequent reaction from its joint broker, Panmure Gordon…
AIM and ASX listed Thor Mining (THR) is a mineral and Development Company with an advanced tungsten/molybdenum project poised for development and exciting precious and base metal exploration projects. A £3.2 million market cap does not discount this.
A mutual pal asked both Evil Knievil and I to assist in a small way in a recent placing at 1.3p for Inspirit (INSP) on AIM. I, or rather RMPC, assisted in a small way on this one as did Mr K
There was a report earlier this week that a big international investment bank has ranked Associated British Foods (ABF) shares as ones to outperform. So I have cast my eye over this equity. I took a preliminary look at the share price noting that the shares are not only way above the five year trend line support but that the share price pattern has formed what technical analysts call a double top; generally regarded as a harbinger of doom.

GLI Finance (GLIF) has followed its July investment in the crowd lending platform FundingKnight by taking another “at least” 20% stake in the form of equity and preference shares in - with its CEO, Geoff Miller, again joining the board of - another crowd-funding platform, Platform Black Ltd. A good move? Yes.
Perennial dog Blavod Wines & Spirits (BES) has announced results for its year ended 31st March 2013 which it notes “reflect the refocusing of the business… the launch of the new owned brand RedLeg Spiced Rum and the investment in reinstating the volumes of a key agency brand impacted by the loss of a listing in the prior year”.
In a very positive development for AIM listed Nostra Terra Oil & Gas (NTOG) it seems to be making progress in its claim against Richfield Oil & Gas for $1.5 million plus fees, according to an RNS announced on 3rd September. House broker XCAP has published a detailed not on the significance of that announcement.
Following complaints from shamed share ramper Roger Lawson, ADVFN has insisted on a raft of new editorial controls on OneFreeShareTip.com. I did not re-start my life five years ago to be told what I could or could not write. I said no and ADVFN boss Clem Chambers has just said that the website will be shut down. So...our hand is forced ... Welcome to fivefreesharetips.com - we hope you join NOW HERE.
As seen here, Telit's (TCM) distributers are a, um, diverse lot, including a distributer in Vietnam that appears to be a scooter courier firm. Which is nice, and thank you for sponsoring this week's Bulletin Board Moron search.
The failure of the LSE to insist that hapless Nomad FinnCap forces Telit (TCM) to bring in a firm like KPMG to conduct a full forensic review will hurt it even more when this company goes tits up as I noted in a letter to Stock Exchange boss Donald Brydon earlier today HERE. Two sources tell me that the FBI may have bad news for the Boston fraudster Oozi Cats and his Mrs as I explain in this podcast. But the meat of the podcast is explaining why Telit will go tits up and why that could be within six weeks. Enjoy.
You may remember that at the last AGM of the London Stock Exchange (LSE) its chairman,, Donald Brydon CBE, 'fessed up to being a ShareProphets reader and as we chatted afterwards he came over as a thoroughly decent man. But he has, yet again, been failed by his minions in their handling of the biggest AIM fraud of the year, so far, Telit (TCM). Lowly gofers such as the head of AIM Regulation, the fake Sheriff Mr Marcus Stuttad, have allowed Telit to avoid any independent scrutiny of its accounts & business practices despite clear evidence of fraud. That has to change and maybe Brydon will push for that. I have sent him a letter.
If you read the bent, freebie is our middle name, personal financie columnists in the deadwood press, fund manager Neil Woodford walks on water. I disagree and have noted before, that, maybe, after three dismal years, others are starting to see the light. But, with assistance from a leading broker, how about we have a real look at the Woodford Patient Capital Trust (WPCT) but also at the sort of dogs Neil ifalls in love with.
VSA is house broker to Obtala (OBT) so is not impartial. Neither am I as we own a small number of shares following a Dragon's Den pitch as the 2017 UK Investor Show. But the price target suggests real upside and VSA's research team is well regarded and since we happily published an uber-negative piece from Evil Banksta the other day, this offers some balance. VSA has tweaked its forecasts
You may remember that ShareProphets poster Drunken Sailor and I were co-defendants in a libel case a couple of years ago ( which we won). Mr sailor is not a drunk and he is a great sleuth when he wants to be. My pressing concerns about uber ramped Bushveld Minerals (BMN) are its balance sheet, but DS has unearthed another major issue which, for some reason, Bushveld has not covered in an RNS. Perhaps it might do so now? Drunken's post merits a wider audience:
Like Richard Poulden, CEO of PCG Entertainment (PCGE), I have a bit of time for Brian Kinane at Riverfort. As someone who believes in transparency and clear communication, my view is that Brian is trying to bring some of that to the world of small cap funding, particularly where the dreaded phrase “ death spiral” is concerned and there’s a few points here to be applauded. It still doesn’t prevent the obvious question being aimed at Mr Poulden though – WHY RAISE MORE FUNDS NOW?
Some folks think that handing out share options to senior staff is a cost free exercise and b) benefits all shareholders as it incentivizes the board and also aligns their interests with those of stockholders. Bollocks on all counts.
Following the postponement of a significant contract announced at the end of last month, SRT Marine Systems (SRT) has now announced an “AIS Aids to Navigation Contract”, including that “the order is for the world's biggest single deployment of AIS AtoN”. The world's biggest hey, sounds impressive!…
Having reached more than 75p in May, shares in information management technology and services company Idox (IDOX) declined below 60p early last month before recovering above 65p - then declining towards 60p again. The company is now “pleased to announce that it has acquired… Halarose, a supplier of electoral back office software and services to UK local authorities, for £5.0 million, comprising £3.5 million in cash and £1.5 million in shares” (at 61.5p)…
Hello Share Grafters. The congestion in most of our airports will give you the heads-up that air travel is booming. It will continue to do so, especially as more people from developing countries become middle class. But you may still be wary of big airlines.
After a stack of RNSs earlier this year, it has all gone quiet at AIM-listed Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO) since the announcement of the termination of the Bracknor death-spiral. How’s the cash position?
Drilling services company Capital Drilling (CAPD) has announced results for the first half of 2017, including that an initial uplift in activity has broadened with an improving outlook in industrial metals and capital markets activities support. Why then are the shares further lower, below 40p, having been above 60p earlier this year?...
From the FCA's spreadsheet of short positions required to be disclosed to it, the following shows the shorted AIM shares with positions from 2016 and thus far in 2017 (by net short position %) - and if this position has increased (red), reduced (green) or remained unchanged (black) since last week...
Previously writing on System1 Group (SYS1), then named BrainJuicer Group, as the shares slid below 700p I concluded there still, despite self-admitted “limited revenue visibility”, a clear lack of a Benjamin Graham ‘margin of safety’ (”for absorbing the effect of miscalculations or worse than average luck” e.g. an earnings miss or negative change in stock market sentiment) and I thus continued to avoid. The shares have though recently been above 800p… until a “Trading Update” announcement today…
In the piss poor results for the six months to 30 June 2017, Telit (TCM) highlighted that it had purchased GainSpan and provided the following rather limited commentary on its contribution to the interim results:
