Mirriad Advertising – “pleased to announce” equity raise result…as it bails it out. But not for long!

Previously writing on company which describes itself as a “leading in-content advertising” business Mirriad Advertising (MIRI), last month with the shares up to 3.8p I wrote “collaborates with Microsoft” ramptastic desperation as funding crisis further nears”.

IQE, Drew Nelson and the scumbag scallywags at Equities First – another sordid chapter of pretence

Equities First holdings offers a service where CEOs of companies where the CEO knows the stock is going to tank, pledge shares to EFH in return for a loan at c65% of the value of the shares. We exposed this scam back in 2019 when EFH first open up shop in Britain. EFH ALWAYS dumps the shares on day one so locking in a neat 50% profit and when the shares tank the directors are faced with a margin call and default.

Ocado beats British Land to be the FTSE 100’s lantern rouge!

Five days ago, I wrote an article titled “What happens when Ocado falls out of the FTSE 100?”. As John Maynard Keynes, not somebody I frequently quote, said “in the long run we are all dead”, and my guess would be that Ocado (OCDO) will struggle to stay a FTSE 100 stock for the rest of this year, let alone beyond. And how did the now sub £3 billion market cap business survive in the FTSE 100 this time? Because the £3.2 billion market cap British Land (BLND) fell out instead.

Why I am happy to keep on avoiding Auto Trader shares

Just over a year ago, I concluded that I was fundamentally unexcited about both Auto Trader (AUTO) and Rightmove (RMV). Whilst I was correct about the latter, the former is actually up about 5% over the last year (and pays a small dividend too). I must admit that I am a bit confused by that, as today’s full year to the end of March numbers may have shown a 16% rise in revenue, but they also showed a 9% fall in profit.

Tern – Disastrous Results: The Chickens Are Coming Home To Roost

AIM-listed jam-tomorrow (if ever) investment company Tern plc (TERN) announced its calendar 2022 results this morning and they are a dog’s breakfast. The NAV per share fell sharply from 9.2p to 6.4p despite placings of £1.5 million at 10p in December, £1.6 million at 7.5p in October and £200,000 at 9.9p in August. But for these, the drop in NAV per share would have been even more extreme. Worse still, I suggest that the company is itself running on fumes and with the shares now trading at just 3.75p (well below the historic stated NAV per share), shareholders are soon to be heavily diluted in a discounted bailout placing.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Dear Jonathan let me explain logic to you, I did not NOT say all Ukrainian women are hookers

Think of my suffering. On June 17 I shall walk 34 miles and be lagging at the back of the pack with my friend Jonathan Price who will have 16 hours to explain to me why Brexit was a disaster, how 17.4million of us are dim or Xenophobic or both and how the fraudster Carole Cadwalladr is the greatest living journalist. Think of my suffering and please donate HERE as we approach ( with gift aid) £10,000 raised for Woodlarks. In today's podcast I discuss Pantheon (PANR) - target price 6p? - BSF Enterprises (BSFA), Versarien (VRS) - shares up 50% today - and Cineworld (CINE), still 100% overvalued. I also look at Cellular Goods (CBX) looking at seaweed to carbon zero technology and referencing THIS ARTICLE.

Call me woke, but I still like Johnson Matthey shares

I have been really quite pleased with my pension fund performance over the last eighteen months or so. Thanks primarily to a couple of rather good tobacco sector performers, despite me never being a smoker, last year I made some money. And this year has been absolutely fine too. Don’t worry, I am not sad enough to try to become an institutional fund manager again and it is also not as if I have not had any investment disappointments. Believe me, anyone who claims they are more than an eight out of ten investor is a liar in my opinion (and if you are regularly more than seven out of ten, then I assume you are appearing on the front page of some business newspaper or equivalent). As for this year, one of the reasons why I am not a regular seven out of ten (or more) investor is associated with Johnson Matthey (JMAT).

The last time I wrote about the shares of Marks and Spencer (MKS) was just before the world of Covid-19 kicked in globally. Back then I concluded that “at least the incoming Marks & Spencer CFO knows how to admit a wrong strategy”, and over the last 27 months or so M&S shares have gone down and up. This morning’s rise, after full year numbers publication, of about 11% has taken the shares back to the level of just over 180p of when I last wrote about them. Is the turnaround actually working?

It’s been raised over a hundred times and every time, it’s nothing but a political posturing. This is only going to lead to the debt being increased exponentially. In fact, since Reagan, the U.S. debt has doubled every eight years, and by 2025, it is projected to reach around $40 trillion.

Before we get onto today’s rather good update from the company which is “passionate about producing only the best quality food, efficiently and sustainably in well invested facilities across the UK”, I am very grateful for the reader who pointed out that in my analysis of Hull I had missed out that “Siemens has its blade factory there” and “Peter Levy from Look North of course should not be overlooked as lead ambassador”. I would therefore like to take this opportunity to add those extra insights and now back onto Cranswick.

The deep yawn continues for me at Metro Bank

I hate to break the news to Metro Bank (MTRO), but I am never going to be one of its customers. A few years back, when the company had a share price of thirty, then twenty and then below ten quid, it used to make quite a few appearances on these pages as a number of us thought (correctly) that it was a dog stock. There have been a bunch of more interesting stocks to think about for the last few years, but I was reminded again about the apparently “highest rated high street bank for overall service quality for personal customers and the best bank for service in-store for personal and business customers, in the Competition and Markets Authority’s Service Quality Survey in February 2023” when I read about an “Admission and Listing of new ordinary shares” this morning.
