BREAKING: Bear Raider Miles Dyson sticks it to Audioboom

I do not think Miles is finished with Victoria (VCP) yet where I agree with him that this could well be a zero. Meanwhile he has a new target where I am also a long time bear, 

It is Audioboom (BOOM). Enjoy. The valuation here is bonkers so with the red flags exposed by Miles this is a double short.

Unbound Group – fundraising result, it really “pleased to announce”?!

Unbound Group (UBG) states that it “is pleased to announce all resolutions put to shareholders at the General Meeting held earlier today in connection with the fundraising and share capital reorganisation were duly passed” and that it “would like to thank shareholders for their support of the fundraising and take the opportunity to welcome new investors onto the register. Now, with the fundraising approved, we will focus on accelerating our growth strategy in a controlled fashion”. So what’s the detail?

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: When it comes to customer service the French can be such xxxxx

I start with my troubles in travelling and also with a guest at the Greek Hovel changing all the locks. Suffice to say I am in a bad mood as I head back to Wales. Then it is onto Canadian Overseas Petroleum (COPL) where - goaded by a trolling and abusive shareholder - I remind you why the shares will be sub 10p by Christmas and could well then head rapidly towards zero. Then back to Zak Mir and Lift Ventures (LFT), where I serve up a scenario where the initial deal was illegal and the cover-up needs exposing, something Aquis Regulation could do at ease. Of course if the NEDS and adviser Optiva are smart and, if my theory is correct, they will resign and whistleblow now as IF the initial deal was illegal and that is now being covered up they do not want to be implicated if things get messy.

Digitalbox – trading “significantly ahead of the company's expectations”, so why a share price fall?

Digital media company which owns ‘Entertainment Daily’, ‘The Daily Mash’ and ‘The Tab’, Digitalbox (DBOX) has announced a trading performance “significantly ahead of the company's expectations” and on “the acquisition of the web and mobile platform assets of TVGuide.co.uk Limited, announced in May… expects this to enhance… revenue performance and profitability”. So why a current share price response to 11.25p, more than 6% lower?

Hostelworld – interims emphasise “strong month on month growth”, but what does that mean financially?

Hostel market-focused online travel agent Hostelworld Group (HSW) states that it “is pleased to announce its interim results for the six-month period ended 30 June 2022… strong month on month growth… in the absence of any further deterioration in the macro-economic climate, disruption to airline schedules, or escalation of the conflict in the Ukraine, we expect to be EBITDA positive in H2”. So what of a current share price response to 90p, down almost 5%?

By all means have a Deliveroo delivery a couple of times a year…but don’t buy the shares!

Back in April I wrote about “The continuing madness of Deliveroo” (ROO) HERE. I am sure there are a bunch of shareholders (and users) of the online food delivery company who are excited to see a c. 3% rise in the company’s shares today. But don’t forget it is still down a mere 52% year-to-date! And if you purchased last year’s IPO, I offer you my commiserations.

How does Victoria respond to the Iceberg bear dossier?

Short selling outfit Iceberg recently published a bear dossier on carpets roll-up play Victoria (VCP), which I reposted on this website HERE. Writing to you from Greece, I am not aware if the deadwood press is taking this matter onwards as what Iceberg wrote was very punchy indeed and I am sure that Victoria’s PR spinners will be using phrases involving the dreaded L word (lawyer) to any of the spineless 4th Estate hacks who ask questions.

Sage Knows Its Onions and Should Shine in the Ever More Complicated Computer World

Hello Share Seekers. Though it’s not been one of my favourites previously, I’m rather taken by the prospects of software specialist Sage Group (SGE). The fact is that computer technology is the biggest growing thing around. Yet in the grand scheme of things, it’s still in its infancy.
