An apology to Mr David Lenigas, the UK's top analyst of gold stocks

2021-02-18 14:30:59

Of course, I am not influenced at all by my ownership of a significant number of shares in Wishbone Gold (WSBN), at 15p valued at £24 million. I note the claim, below, by Mr David Lenigas that Wishbone's gold asset may offer a bigger gold target than that of Greatland Gold, market cap £856 million. If I have ever given the impression that I consider Mr Lenigas a penny share pushing stock promoter prone to laughable hyperbole I would like to apologise. The man, as you can see below, is the most prudent and conservative analyst of high quality gold stocks in Britain today. He is a National treasure.

Another heartfelt apology to Mr David Lenigas

2021-01-07 13:05:58

If I have ever given the impression that Mr David Lenigas, aka Big Dave, is a shameless ramper and promoter of penny shares, I would like to apologise most sincerely. As a fellow shareholder In Wishbone Gold (WSBN), I note the tweet below and it must now be clear to all that Mr Lenigas is the most thoughtful, balanced and objective analyst of gold stocks here in London and, as the late great father of the late Paula Yates used to say, "I mean that most sincerely." Mind you, on this occasion, Mr Lenigas might actually be right.

2020-10-05 12:09:46

I think that I am still c£25,000 underwater on my Wishbone Gold (WSBN) shares so far be it from me to discourage shameless Aussie stock promoter Big Dave Lenigas from ramping the stock as shamelessly as possible. However…


Wishbone Gold – Australia exploration work to add further excitement?...

2020-09-13 09:32:29

A month ago, we told you to average down and BUY Wishbone Gold (WSBN) at a 2.1p offer. With the shares now at 3.3p-3.6p, we hoped you took our advice and have clawed back some, if not all, of your losses on this serial disappointer. Where next?


David Lenigas ramps again - please don't let me stop you

2020-09-09 13:17:50

I reckon that my losses on Wishbone Gold (WSBN) are now down to around £25,000. In that vein, I should like to apologise for any suggestion that Mr David Lenigas is an unscrupulous ramper of penny shares and make it clear that he is a thoughtful analyst who does detailed research before taking to twitter. For he is at it again.


Wishbone Gold – placing and news on further Australia exploration...BUY

2020-08-22 10:30:10

I admit that this has been an awful share tip and I can only apologise again. If it is any consolation, my losses on this are in excess of £30,000. The only way to make some of the losses back is to average down and I suggest you do that if you can at up to 2.4p because with a following wind these shares could easily hit 4.25p.


Wishbone Gold: Big Dave Lenigas now ramping, Go Dave Go!

2020-08-19 13:20:41

This has been a dreadful tip from me and the only consolation that you may have if you followed my advice is that I have lost a vast amount on this one myself.Wishboe Gold (WSBN) shares are up by 75% today at 2.45p but I calculate that i still need a gain of c 900% to break even from here. The stock is ahead on news that the company is going to start exploring for gold in Australia and the, rather fruity RNS mentions some grades from chip samples at surface.


Wishbone Trading statement – a bad tip, apologies but a buy at 0.05p

2019-05-26 13:28:20

Last week, Wishbone Gold (LSE:WSBN) served up a trading statement that saw its shares tumble to 0.04p-0.05p. As a shareholder I share your pain and apologise for what has been a bad tip. I have drunk my own medicine averaging down so do feel that pain big time. I can understand how some folks are angry. Over at ShareProphets someone posted this comment:


Ooops I forgot to say this in bearcast (Wishbone)

2019-04-24 15:08:26

Thanks for all your emails, fellow shareholders. I had indeed noticed that shares in Wishbone Gold (WSBN) were down by c27% today at 0.07p and so put in a call to Richard Poulden.

2019-01-02 02:35:51

Wishbone Gold Placing, I could ffing scream - BUT!!!!

2018-12-27 01:03:57

Tom Winnifrith wrote before Christmas: I am just livid, But you make bad trading decisions when livid so I am not selling my shares in Wishbone Gold (WSBN) but am doubling down on my torture by going to spend two days with my mother in law in the grim Northern welfare safari.


Wishbone Gold: Buy at 0.095p target 0.589p or 1.19p

2018-11-19 02:17:36

Two caveats. Firstly, the analyst producing this note is Dr Michael Green who as PR man to the fraud Sefton (SER) earned a fat wedge protecting that fraud by, inter alia, masterminding a dirty tricks campaign against myself and Dan Levi.  He is a motherfucker with no place in financial services and he should be cold shouldered by anyone with any sense of morality. Secondly, Align is a paid for research provider. Notwithstanding that I reckon Wishbone Gold (WSBN) shares, which we own and bought more of at 0.1p, are very cheap.  So here is the Align research. The morally bankrupt Green who Align should fire on principle, opines:


Wishbone Gold - placing at just 0.1p, ouch, but strong buy – average down (we have)

2018-10-19 08:05:45

Tom Winnifrith writes: This has been a bad tip. We apologise. We owned the shares too and share that pain. But with the stock now at 0.1p-0.12p the shares are a STRONG BUY, average down. Let me explain.

UK Investor Show 2018 video: Richard Poulden of Wishbone Gold

2018-04-29 02:15:19

I own shares in Wishbone Gold (WSBN) in my pension and so does FIML. So, for that matter, does my son Joshua. I think that in the end we will all make money and a lot of it but so far it has been "bumpy." Here to explain why the future is golden is founder and chairman Richard Poulden.

WishBone Gold Honduras Update - it is good news: STRONG BUY

2017-12-10 02:06:54

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.


Wishbone Gold - trading update, Buy to almost double your money?

2017-10-27 00:35:00

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.


Align says buy Wishbone Gold at a 0.7p offer - target 1.97p

2017-09-28 00:20:53

Okay the researcher is paid so is not impartial, but Align shows it believes by using its fees to buy shares which it holds. So as paid for researchers go it is more credible than most. It has initiated coverage of Wishbone Gold (WSBN). We see these shares as a buy at up to 0.85p with a 1.3p target to sell. Align is more bullish. It notes, in precis,


Wishbone Gold – interims, Honduras disruption but potential African excitement: BUY

2017-07-01 04:28:07

Wishbone Gold (WSBN), the precious metals trading and exploration company, announces its final results for the year ended 31 December 2016. The numbers are pretty academic just look for 7 key words in the statement from chairman Richard Poulden.


Last time we made 117% on Wishbone: buy again at up to 0.9p

2017-06-04 07:22:45

It was a cracking tip last time around. We never sold the shares we held in Wishbone Gold (WSBN) as we have always had faith in the long term story. But our website is not about long term gains - although they are not a bad thing! It is about short term gains and we reckon that Wishbone Gold will deliver those in spades. The trade is to buy at up to 0.9p with a target to sell of at least 1.3p within months - when this article first appeared on HotStockRockets the shares were 0.7p offer. Our readers are already in the money but the shares are still buyable!.

Richard Poulden of Wishbone Gold explains import of recent RNS

2017-04-15 01:39:56

Okay this is a Proactive Interview so it is not exactly probing. The slippery little twit asking the questions is no Paxman. But we own shed loads of Wishbone Gold shares (WSBN) so, as Richard Poulden gives a very upbeat explanation of where the company is heading, we are happy to give it the oxygen of publicity. Enjoy.

The good news for Wishbone is that the deal involves all the output from those mines being supplied to Wishbone – at preferential prices – in a deal which runs for 30 years.


ShareProphets Share Tips of the year Number 18 - buy Wishbone Gold says Tom Winnifrith

2016-12-30 01:04:00

You want your share tip of the year to have the potential to double or treble. You will not get that with GlaxoSmithKline (GSK). Equally it is incredibly unlikely that you might lose 75% of your cash on Glaxo. Elephants do not gallop eith forwards or backwards. My third tip of the year is a stock that could lose 75% and become a cash shell. But it is also one that could easily treble and I think he odds are on the treble not the collapse. I refer to Wishbone Gold (WSBN)


Bloody Hell - another Wishbone Placing as Beaufort Securities shows naked greed

2016-10-27 01:35:04

Just when Wishbone (WSBN) shares were getting going again after the last placing conducted by Belfort Securities to their spiv share flipping bucket shop mates, here we go again. Boy my morning has started well: not only do I have to suffer more laziness and abusive emails from my lazy, greedy bitch of a selfish bitch of an ex wife but this as well. I want to go back to bed.


So we did not sell Wishbone after that placing, conversations with the chairman

2016-10-16 08:33:27

My last comment on Wishbone Gold (WSBN) was not exactly positive. The company's shares had raced ahead, in part methinks, down to comments made by me saying I'd not be selling until the shares were closer to 2p than 1p. It then raised £600,000 at just 0.75p with broker Beaufort Securites trousering not just commission but warrants. I write a fairly vicious piece HERE. But we did not sell and at 1p are still holding and hoping for better. I swapped emails with chairman Richard Poulden last week.


Wishbone Gold Placing - not in the script at all

2016-09-28 02:35:45

I apologise to one and all over Wishbone Gold (WSBN) which has today completed a £600,000 placing at just 0.75p with broker Belfort Securities handing out shares to spiv bucket shop flippers. This was not on the script and I cannot recommend a purchase of the shares at 1.15p-1.2p. That the shares are up a tad today but fell in the run up to his placing tells you everything you need to know about forward selling on the AIM casino, especially when the broker is Belfort.


Wishbone - why I am certainly not selling now : the maths are compelling

2016-09-11 04:11:07

We are almost 200% ahead on our investment in Wishbone Gold (WSBN) with the shares at 0.815p and I must admit that in recent weeks, I have, several times, thought about banking a few gains. But then came Thursday's statement from the company and I did the maths again - am I mad? This stock could still be extraordinarily cheap. Hear me out before you send for the men in flapping white coats.


Wishbone: belated AGM statement - much better late than never

2016-08-15 23:58:56

Why on earth it took Wishbone Gold (WSBN), the owner of the Black Sand gold trading business, two working days with a weekend in between to release an AGM statement is beyond me. Amid the uncertainty that caused we loyal shareholders suffered as the shares slid. But better late than never we had an RNS yesterday and it was good news indeed.


Wishbone Gold Prelims - now we know why FD left in a hurry, numbers irrelevant

2016-06-30 23:45:17

For what it is worth Wishbone Gold (WSBN) reported a loss of $1.12 million for calendar 2015 but that is all in the past. Perhaps the most noteworthy element of the historic numbers is the fact that the auditors cannot verify almost $100,000 of travel expenses and flag this up.


Did Richard Poulden say something bad about Wishbone at Mining Capital? No - slides below

2016-05-12 09:41:58

Shares in Wishbone Gold (WSBN), which is still not doing a placing as a certain ex bank robber insists but instead is raising debt but not for PLC costs, have slipped to 0.475p prompting a couple of readers to ask if Richard Poulden said something bad at the Mining Capital Conference yesterday?

2016-05-06 01:03:20

Notwithstanding the lies put about by a former bank robber regarding Wishbone Gold (WSBN), its shares have raced ahead in recent weeks and, as a happy holder, I see more upside. Watch the presentation from the show (something a certain ex bank robber did not do) and you will see why.


Wishbone forced to make statement as shares zoom: don't sell now!

2016-05-02 05:20:02

Wishbone shares jump 20% - TW Trust buys more, what's new pussycat?

2016-04-20 00:16:13

We guess everyone is hearing the same sort of gossip. The word on the street is that Wishbone Gold (WSBN) is making good progress on securing the debt facilities needed to start trading in gold bullion. and that should lead to a massive ramp up in profits very quickly indeed. As such any RNS confirming debt is in place will see the shares race ahead. Bring it on.


Buy Wishbone Gold at 0.31p - target 0.6p to sell

2016-02-14 03:41:35

"Oh no" you say, "not that old dog again". Yes it is that old dog with a Wishbone (WSBN) but everything changed two weeks ago with a quite transformational deal. The  market has not twigged just how transformational this deal is. The shares are a buy at 0.31p with a (cautious) target price to sell of 0.6p.


Wishbone Gold scans the scene

2014-07-09 13:08:37

Richard Poulden, the barrister and entrepreneur who built potash play Sirius Minerals by acquisitions around the world into a company with a stock market value of more than £200 million, confesses to one particular enthusiasm: gold. He argues the stage is set for a major increase in the price of bullion, largely attributable to the machinations of the People’s Republic of China, and, as executive chairman and key shareholder of AIM-quoted Wishbone Gold (WSBN), he is seeking to grasp opportunities among newly producing or soon to be producing gold projects.

Not only do you get free booze and food but there are presentations by two good friends of mine, Kerim Sener of Ariana Resources (AAU) and Richard Poulden, the uber-libertarian CEO of Wishbone Gold (WSBN).

There is also a decent looking bird, Jan Skoyles speaking on macro themes.

HotStockRockets tip of the year Number 2: Buy Wishbone Gold at 3p

2013-12-31 11:25:41

We do not really do tips of the year at HotStockRockets since our timeframe is three months. We thus offer three selections today with the caveat that we expect to tell our readers on HotStockRockets to bank gains well before the start of spring. The first tip for today is Wishbone Gold (WSBN) at 3p (offer) – already 20% up on our original tip of a few weeks ago but, we think, set to fly.
