Tomco – yet another bailout placing – can any AIM listed company better this record of value destruction?

Tomco (TOM) arrived on AIM via an RTO int a failed tech business just in time for Christmas 2006. Was that a White Christmas? I only ask because I am dreaming of one and the chap behind that RTO was Howard Crosby, nephew of Bing and cousin of Mary who shot JR.  More than £5 million was raised at 2.5p. Wind forward today and, accounting for a 2017 200-1 share consolidation, the shares at 0.335p, are 99.933% down. Can any AIM dog, still going, match that record of disaster?


Black Cats and Ladders. The Daft Superstitions Some Folks Observe when Buying Shares.

Hello, Share Takers. It’s possible you’re in light-hearted mood after taking the advice, over the last few months, of various writers on this glorious website to buy shares in oil companies. They’ve since soared on the  galloping price of oil and gas. So allow me to be frivolous while the markets are closed and look at some of the superstitions that can govern the buying or selling of shares.


Breaking: After last week’s insider dealing and pulled placing Tomco placing again but broker Turner Pope not on the case

Shares in Tomco (TOM) have continued to race ahead even thought it is teetering on the brink of bankruptcy as those who broke insider dealing laws by forward selling last week’s placing, which had to be scrapped after it emerged the company had lied to investors, scuttled to buy back. That offers an opportunity and so I can reveal…


Tomco Bailout Rescue Placing Pulled but shares soar – call the cops, call the FCA I smell white collar crime

Following the shocking revelation that Tomco (TOM) had lied to investors it has pulled the £1.5 million placing at 0.4p announced on Wednesday leaving it running on fumes. In fact, I’ll wager you a line or two of finest Colombian marching powder, direct from the City’s grubbiest dealing floors, that it is technically insolvent. Yet its shares, returning from suspension, have rocketed ahead to 0.775p, a gain of c75%. The FCA should be hot footing it to the offices of broker Turner Pope without delay. I smell crime.


Tomco shares suspended, will rescue placing be pulled as it appears company has been very naughty indeed in the truth department

Oh dear,. Oh dear, this looks very grim for Tomco (TOM). Gary Newman slated the heavily discounted bailout placing at 0.4p announced first thing.  But it seems that Tomco has been telling porkies and at 2.52 PM its shares were suspended pending an announcement. What will that say “ We are scumbags and fucking liars!” would be my suggested headline.
