The Sheriff of AIM is feeling rather fragile today in the wake of the AIM Cesspit awards dinner. Do not expect a great deal of output from me today. I had a good time and think that others did too. The wine and beer flowed freely, Evil and Lucian Miers gave good talks and David Lenigas pitched in with his thoughts on Nomads. A brave Quindell (QPP) shareholder turned up and was teased a bit but took it well. But you want to know who won.
Dr. Kerim Sener, the mild-spoken geologist who runs Turkish gold hopeful Ariana Resources (AAU), is a patient man -- and the performance of his company’s shares since its AIM float in 2005 has tried the patience of many of its investors. He is now celebrating the award by the Ankara government of a range of fiscal incentives, estimated by Ariana to be worth more than $2 million (£1.2 million), as the company heads towards the long-awaited start of production in 2015 at a targeted annual rate of 21,000 oz. a year at Kiziltepe, a key part of its Red Rabbit gold and silver project in western Turkey.
Hello Share Nudgers: Many, many years ago I was persuaded by a good friend to invest in Creightons (CRL). You probably haven't heard of them – they're so small and usually moribund.They have a market cap of just £2m. They make soaps, fragrances and toiletries, such as things you put in cars to make them smell a bit better.
Quindell (QPP) owning twitter moron Keith Allen does not like what I say about the company. And his response appears to be overt threats. For the avoidance of doubt I do not respond to threats and will not be cowed into silence.
I have to admire the Dunkirk spirit of certain long term bulletin board supporters of Sefton Resources (SER). Surrounded on all sides, under constant bombardment from land, air and sea, this plucky little group of shareholders will never fail to see the silver lining in the storm clouds gathering over their heads, no matter how bleak or perilous they may be. I’ll write about the dire terms of Sefton’s refinancing deal tomorrow, but in the meantime the company’s results for last year are abysmal. Anyone considering buying into this revival story should have a long hard think about their nearest and dearest before throwing cash into this money pit of a company.
Outside the palatial offices of City financiers Daniel Stewart I considered a quite bizarre AGM. The chairman had a few problems with his visa so could not be there leaving two hapless NEDs to field questions. I congratulate the Naibu (NBU) shareholders who attended – they seemed a well informed and perceptive bunch.
To forget to issue shares which you said you were issuing once is arguably excusable. To forget to issue shares that you said you were issuing a second time starts to look like carelessness. Why oh why do the vendors of businesses to Quindell (QPP) not seem to care that they are not being issued with the shares they are owed. I forced a statement on this matter with PT Healthcare (see here) now I turn to Iter8.
Outside the palatial offices of City financiers Daniel Stewart I waited for the massed herds to arrive at the Naibu (NBU) AGM. In the end seven other folks attended. Before going into battle I composed a few thoughts and recorded them on video.
If I comment on Fidelity increasing its stake in Quindell (QPP) I am damned as an obsessive. If I say nothing I am damned as a coward. So I am damned either way but for what it is worth…
Vin Murria of Advanced Computer Software (ASW) is rightly regarded as the Queen of UK Tech and headed up the all star panel in our tech session at UK Investor 2014. Listen to her sage words before you consider investing in the next loss making, high flying, tech IPO. She is on blistering form in this video.
Hello Share Fans: I'm a great fan of government-led initial public offerings. This is when a Whitehall set-up like the Royal Mail (RMG) decides to sell shares to the public for the first time. Obviously, the Royal Mail offering was a success. They pitched the price of the shares too low. But wouldn't you, if you wanted to grab some money from the man and woman in the street to shore up the Treasury?
Hurricane Energy (HUR) announced some fantastic news last week, but like most AIM shares these days it didn’t stop the share price being manipulated. This oil explorer with assets in the West of Shetland area revealed that the appraisal of its 100% owned Lancaster discovery had been a huge success, with flow rates as high as 9,800bopd being achieved.
I am sorry to go on but I could not resist this gem. If you ever wondered how Rob Terry and Quindell (QPP) managed to capture between 75% and 150% (depending on which stats you use) of the UK Industrial Deafness market from a standing start just ask Rod Cameron, “Executive Assistant to the Founder and Chairman of Quindell PLC.” Ooooh er missus.
I met up with Oisin Fanning of San Leon Energy (SLE) some weeks ago and though I liked him greatly I told him point blank that he was overpaid and his interests were thus not aligned with those of shareholders. I made a suggestion and to his credit he has taken it onboard 100% as the publication of today’s AGM agenda shows. This is a groundbreaking victory for The Sheriff and a great day for shareholder democracy and empowerment and I’d like to see it rolled out across the AIM Cesspit – a Fanning Rule.
Our last share tip was published nine days ago. On an offer to bid basis it is already 22% ahead. And we think it offers 50% more upside from here and will get there within weeks. That I what we look for – shares that are cheap and moving fast. 20% ahead after nine days is not bad but just wait for our next winner – our tip of the month which is out on Monday! You can catch it for just £5 HERE
There were two interesting articles on Rose Petroleum (ROSE) written by Chris Oil this weekend that caught the attention of many retail investors. Chris has made some great calls recently, most notably Hurricane Oil (HUR) which has risen over 50% since his tip at 27.5p. Anyone following Chris’ advice would be reaping some healthy gains. However I think Chris has got his calls on Rose wrong. I am greatful to Tom Winnifrith for - in the interests of balance - allowing me to put the alternative point of view.
You may not like short sellers but the bear raider panel at the UK Investor Show 2014 called things right on a range of stocks from blinkx (BLNX), to Globo (GBO), to Quindell (QPP) as you can see in the video below. Evil Knievil, Lucian Miers and Matt Earl (The Dark Destroyer) have all promised to return for another main stage masterclass at UK Investor Show 2015 on April 18.
We tipped UK Oil & Gas (LSE:UKOG) on Hotstockrockets at a 0.9p offer on 16 June 2014. Two weeks later the stock is trading at 1.1p-1.2p. But the big gains are yet to come and will come soon. We expect to sell at 1.8p within five weeks.
Tom Winnifrith had a great meeting with the AIM listed CEO he admires the most last week and discussed a range of issues relation to acquisitions. Yes, a bit of this relates to Quindell (QPP) but it is a more general discussion.
