At 7 AM a week ago liar and crook Jim Ellerton stepped down from the board of Sefton following the publication by me of documents showing that he was a liar and criminal. This was meant to be temporary pending a full investigation which we were told would mean that we would get an update “within one week”.Well guess frigging what?
Following my update last week on Cineworld Group (CINE), the largest cinema operator in the UK, the shares have continued to advance (to a current 421p) and the company has today announced an expansion of its partnership with IMAX Corporation…
I tipped shares in collectibles business Noble Investments (NBL) at a 220p offer price in February on the Nifty Fifty website I run with Tom Winnifrith and at the time I noted that the company had been hit a few months prior by commissions due of £2.2 million remaining unpaid “as a significant Qatari collector has yet to settle the consideration due in respect of auction purchases”.
Following interim results from international engineering, construction and technical support services provider, Kentz (KENZ) yesterday there has been further broker reaction. The following updates…
Commissioned researcher Edison has published a bullish and detailed note on IQE (IQE) this morning with the stock at 31p.
The U.S. Comex gold futures advanced for three consecutive weeks and have rebounded 20.4 percent since the trough on 27 June. This week, the gold futures were up 1.75 percent to finish at $1,420 on Tuesday. Year-to-date, the prices declined 15.26 percent. The Dollar Index ended at 81.166 on Tuesday and fell 0.24 percent this week.
Our very own penny stock resources guru Doc Holiday has challenged our friends at Mining maven to a share tipping contest. Today is day two. C’mon Doc:
Results from Kenmatre (KMR) out today are – as expected – dismal. But it is the cautious statement about ilmenite demand and prices that will really set alarm bells ringing given the dire state of the company’s balance sheet. The world’s top mining analyst Roger Bade of Whitman Howard warns that yet another cash call is needed.
Kentz (KENZ), the international engineering, construction and technical support services provider whose share price (currently around 570p) has recently been buoyed by takeover approaches, has announced results for the first half of 2013. The following updates along with a broker’s thoughts…
Invensys plc (ISYS), the FTSE-250 software, industrial automation and energy controls company which last month announced an agreed takeover offer from France-headquartered multinational Schneider Electric has announced “an extension of the normal timetable for posting of the scheme document” due to “the time required to prepare and obtain regulatory approval for the prospectus to be published by Schneider Electric in relation to the offer”…
Sylvania Platinum (SLP) announced its annual results today and the world’s No 1 mining analyst Roger Bade of Whitman Howard reckons that what was published really does not tell the whole (unimpressive) story. Bade writes:
Eric Sprott founded Sprott Asset Management in 2001, and has been a steadfast proponent of owning gold and gold equities over the last decade. He recently argued that gold may rally to new highs within the next 12 month – he is perhaps the world’s best known resource stock investor. As such this interview given the other day is pretty interesting stuff.
Northern Petroleum (NOP) announced last week that 3D seismic data purchased and interpreted since the company acquired its leases in northern Alberta, Canada “has increased the number and type of drilling opportunities available on the land… (these) include the identification of undrilled reef structures as well as reefs which may benefit from drilling up-structure from the previous entry point”. With also formal assignment of existing wellbores from previous operators taking longer than usual (the drilling of a new well and a side track not affected by this), the company notes that “the final proof of concept well sequence will be adapted to reflect this”
Our penny stock resources guru Doc Holiday has challenged our friends at Mining maven to a share tipping contest. Doc will over the next few days pick five oil stocks, Mining Maven a five mining stocks. Let battle commence ( c'mon Doc!):
Meggitt (MGGT) is in part a supplier of military aircraft equipment to the US. This time last year, facing the US ‘fiscal cliff’ (remember that ?) when observers were gloomy about Meggitt’s prospects in that market. Who and how many predicted that Meggitt shares would have outperformed the FTSE 100 in the way it has over the last year (Meggitt’s shares are up 33% and the Index by 12%).
The more you dig the more you find with Sefton (SER). As such here are a couple of other items for Pinsents, Dr Ali, the NEDs and the Spiders from Mars to add to the internal investigation into liar and crook Jim Ellerton. I take you back to the 2005 Annual Report.
Those who backed the IPO of technology investment company Frontier IP (FIPP) in 2009 are still nursing heavy losses but recent weeks has seen some interesting buying and the shares have moved ahead to 13.75p. Has the corner been turned?
The Pinsents Masons enquiry into Jim Ellerton just got a bit longer thanks to Dan Levi’s smoking bazooka revelation of yesterday which means that without ambiguity one can say that Jim Ellerton is a liar and a criminal. The only question is what sort of criminal? I discuss below where Jim will be prosecuted and for what and what this means for Sefton and me.
In this week’s video postcard Tom discusses why only bad companies such as Sefton and Cupid use lawyers to bully their critics. He also covers the joke outfit that is the AIM Regulation team.
With its own lawyer, Russell Booker of Pinsent Masons, admitting that the Sefton libel case against myself and Dan Levi is in tatters with its sole witness (liar and crook) Jim Ellerton having been booted off the board in disgrace and now (in Booker’s words) “discredited,” the way is open for Dan Levi and myself to launch claims against Sefton. Will this sink the ship?
Nigel Wray's family buys the UK Investor Show, confronting the new takeover code, five buy share tips (and three sells), plus what are they drinking in Scotland?
Advanced materials engineering group Versarien (VRS) floated on AIM at 12.5p around four years ago. Its plan then was to commercialise a process called Lost Carbonate Sintering, the brainchild of a Dr. Zhao of the university of Liverpool. More recently it appears to have shifted its focus to graphene products.
Tomorrow we will run stories on 2 AIM listed companies showing evidence of wholesale lying and worse. I will show why even a small lie matters and why the real scandal is that in case 2 this is a leopard who is re-offending and the weedy spineless poltroons at AIM Regulation knew of his character before allowing him scope to re-offend. I also question why Gavin Burnell of Globo infamy is allowed to remain as a fox inside the regulatory chicken-coop while investigations into that fraud continue.
Fox Marble (FOX) has announced that it has received an unsecured loan of £500,000 from Roy Harrison OBE, a non-executive director of the Company - The interest rate is a very reasonable 5% and the loan can - and will - be repaid within two years.
Excuse the late Bearcast but my journey back from my father's in Shipston in the snow covered Cotswolds was long and eventful as I discuss in this podcast. In a valley on the Road between Stow and Cheltenham I took part in and saw the best of selfless Britishness, folks acting with a true Christmas spirit. And also the worst, in spades. The photos give some idea of the scene as I explain what went on. Normal service resumes tomorrow.
I smiled wryly at the announcement on Thursday from YOLO Leisure and Technology (YOLO) about its investment in Magic Media Works, the manufacturer of the Electric Jukebox / ROXI as, once again, it makes the Daily Mail look pretty silly and one wonders whether its “financial journalists” ever ask a probing question before just publishing whatever is served up to them by corporate PR.
Further to yesterday’s piece on Milestone Group (MSG), it gets a bit more serious today as any Milestone shareholders should think very hard about whether they want to get into bed with Black Cactus and Larry Cummins as he looks like an A1 prize bull-shitter to me.
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...
Hello, Share Smilers. At the end of the week, the Footsie gave us an early Christmas present of 73 points. 0r 1%. Yet, I don’t think the big index has finished yet with its traditional Yuletide gifts. The Santa Rally, rather late as usual, is now upon us.
BOS Global (BOS) is teetering on the brink of insolvency while the company's founder Michael Travia also tries top oust current directors led by serial fuck-up merchant Adam Webb. I have now seen letters sent by those very close to the situation which act as a second source for me of the most damning allegations about Webb who should stand down at once and never be allowed to run a public company again.
You may remember that the hand of God (i.e. hurricanes) derailed the artisanal gold mines in Honduras which were set to supply gold to the Black Sands gold trading operation of Wishbone Gold (WSBN). We now have an update.
A couple of pieces this weekend on one of the Blockchain Buffoons, Milestone Group (MSG). First a light-hearted look at what must have been a dispiriting clear-out this week of the ex-CEO, Deborah White’s mess and then tomorrow a more serious piece that I would urge all Milestone shareholders to read. First though, the (more amusing stuff.
Accrol (ACRL) has announced General Meeting refinancing approval – and the shares have responded 5.5% higher to 43p. However, I remind there are still significant reasons for caution here…
Another week where 7 out of 10 of the top articles are videos or Bearcasts. That's fine by me, it's a USP of ShareProphets membership and I'm glad that people are using one of the defining things of our site in such numbers.
Metal Tiger (MTR) has announced “encouraging early results of T3 underground project mining study” in Botswana and a Water & Environmental Monitoring Program in Thailand…
AIM-listed Tern plc (TERN) seems to have a spot of explaining to do – or, more particularly, its CEO Al Sisto. I refer to the presentation on the website of US Capital Partners in relation to the (so far failed) attempted fundraise by Tern’s principal investee Device Authority.
