Just for a hoot I visited the Supply@ME Capital (SYME) thread on ADVFN (AFN). You should try it, it really is a laugh, rarely have I encountered such moronic fantasists. There is almost no discussion of fundamental analysis of Supply yet still plenty of dreamers wondering what colour Ferrari they will buy when it all comes good. That the shares are down by almost 50% over the past year and by almost 90% since peak ramp is, according to many posters, down to one thing:
Today I look at Conroy Gold & Natural Resources (CGNR), Ariana (AAU) and Bluebird Merchant Ventures (BMV). Then at Pantheon Resources (PANR) and at ADVFN (AFN). Finally Evil Banksta has sent me this Bulletin Board post below on Technology Minerals (TMI). I have always been bearish on this stock as any company in any way linked to Chris Cleverly is always a dog with fleas. The post below looks to be kosher, thought it may not be, so, I suspect, does not alter the bear case and my target remains 0p.
I am sure you can guess the sport related reasons for the fragility. Blame my pal C who you may have met at ShareStock last year. It is all his fault. I start with that and a milestone this website reached on Friday. Then onto pot/CBD stocks including Seed Innovations (SEED), Chill Brands (CHLL), Oxford Cannabinoid (OCTP), Love Hemp (LIFE) and Cellular Goods (CBX) and "investment expert" Clem Chambers of ADVFN (AFN) infamy. No sniggering at the back please
It is 50 years since the Rocky Horror show first appeared and to celebrate this Clem Chambers and the AIM dog that funds his sons’ business, Online Blockchain (OBC), has another spoof for you all as it tries to get away yet another bailout placing.
It is a sign of just how much, to its credit, the largely Jewish board of ADVFN (AFN) really does believe in free speech that it still allows the biggest jew hating nutter out their to pollute its boards. But surely there must be a limit? The post below is from yesterday and concerns Bidstack (BIDS) where aidenabettin is long and wrong and insists that any share price weakness is down to a conspiracy between myself and unnamed Israelis. The post is below the words in bold type are brief comment from me:
Words almost fail me. In writing his excuses for another abysmal year at Online Blockchain (OBC), Clem Chambers starts by banging on about ADVFN (AFN) which Online bled dry with bogus charges when Chambers also ran ADVFN and where Online holds a 17% stake. Chambers knows who is to blame for matters at ADVFN. Not him for 20 years of relatives on the payroll, obscene expense claims and grossly inflated pay for him and his mates. Oh no…. Chambers says:
Recorded on the hoof before I fly to Greece, this Bearcast covers the open offer at ADVFN (AFN) and what new management must do to deal with the revolting greed, reward for failure and disgraceful behaviour of ex-boss Clem Chambers and his gophers. It is truly nauseating.
I start today's Bearcast by agreeing with the vile Peter Mandelson on why the Tories really are toast. Then it is onto musicMagpie (MMAG), ProCook (PROC), Online Blockchain (OBC), ADVFN (AFN), Cellular Goods (CBX), Gild eSports (GILD) and Eden Research (EDEN). What a roll call of infamy.
I start with the wildlife diversity and will leave you in supense ahead of the drive back to Wrexham which starts in one hour. Then it is onto Zak Mir's sordid Lift Global Ventures (LFT), more Clem Chambers gimps getting the boot at ADVFN (AFN) and Bidstack (BIDS) where after today's piss poor interims, even Stevie Wonder can see that the writing is on the wall about the next bailout placing.
I start with AMTD Digital, run by a man banned from operating in Hong Kong, whose US listed shares have zoomed ahead by 14,000% since its IPO a few weeks ago. It is now valued at more than Goldman Sachs. This is insanity writ large but it is risky betting against insanity. Then it is onto the stench of the Betahny Garner affair, Cellular Goods (CBX), Kanabo (KNB) and Oxford Cannabinoid (OCTP) where i discuss other clear signs that a bailout placing is being lined up. Then it is onto Online Blockchain (OBC) and the threat ADVFN (AFN) should be making against it. Finally I discuss La Willingham's Nightcap (NGHT), its trading statement and the cash crisis looming this Autumn.
I end with a few thoughts onb your fires back in Blighty and the relative lack of fires here in Greece and what it says about the global warming scam some folks are pushing. Then dividends, ADVFN (AFN) and Royal Mail Group (RMG). Then Morses Club (MCL) and Optibiotix (OPTI). And I admit to being bored with gold. What does that tell you as I am a real gold bull?
The Mrs arrives in a few hours so I record early so that Joshua and I can tidy up the hovel and car in order to ensure a harmonius reunion. I am sure all men know how I feel when your other half has spent a few daysd away from home allowing you to make the sort of mess only men can make. In the week coming up I shall be chatting to Yair Tauman the new supreme ruler of ADVFN (AFN) about various matters but mainly about how the sewer that is the ADVFN Bulletin Board can be improved. I share my views with you, noting some recent extraordinary market abuse on the Optibiotix (OPTI) thread, but also invite you to post your views in the comments section below and, as long as they make sense, I shall relay them to Yair.
It is just five days to Rogue Bloggers for Woodlarks and we are at just under 33% of our target so can the 93% of listeners yet to donate please do so HERE. In today's podcast I cover the quarter of a billion quid blown, largely by Neil Woodford, at Rutherford (RUTH) and how that made Woodford,personally, even richer. I name and shame a couple of those who enabled that scam. I look at Wildcat Petroleum (WCAT), Guild ESports (GILD) and Cellular Goods (CBX) and the piss poor Times' idea of breaking news, I mention Optibiotix (OPTI),look at Eve (EVE) which seems to be a zero to me, at spineless and busted Cineworld (CINE) and in detail at ADVFN (AFN) and its woes.
At the peak of a raging bull market ADVFN (AFN) managed an almost unique event in its history, it reported a profit. Facing a "sack the board" threat from Yair Tauman it recklessly started paying dividends. Now, as we slip into a bear market and with Yair’s nominees in charge we see how that payout was foolish and unsustainable as a ghastly warning of steep losses and worrying cashburn is served up.
Thanks to Yair Tauman, he is no longer able to draw a £300,000 salary and an even bigger expense account at ADVFN (AFN), so what now for Clem Chambrs? There was the hilarious attempt to stag the disastrous IPO of Lift Global Ventures, but a man needs more in life. So as you can see below Clem is now a celebrated artist with his work showing later this week in a "flash" exhibition in Paris. In case you are in Frogland I also bring you a couple of Clem's masterpieces. They don't float my boat but maybe you have a "different" taste?
I write this as someone who operates a small venture with ADVFN (AFN), and, at this point, nobody has bothered to tell me where I stand; so, what follows is informed speculation - I am in the dark as much as you. Yesterday afternoon, the GM results came in.
Cue a rant on teachers and other public sector workers! I then discuss ADVFN (AFN); Mkango Resources (MKA); Parsley Box (MEAL); McColls (MCLS); Sensyne (SENS); Petropavlovsk (POG); and Vast Resources (VAST). Then, I look in detail at Nightcap (NGHT) and AO World (AO.)
This is outrageous and enough to make one lose all faith in the integrity of some in the financial markets. Today ADVFN (AFN) has announced its 2022 financial awards where past winners include Ronnie Kray (re-distributor of the year), Bernie Madoff (fund manager of the year) and Gordon Brown (economist of the year). The correlation between those financial services companies receiving awards and those advertising heavily on ADVFN is, as ever, just a pure coincidence. The main award is the blogger or blog of the year. Naturally nobody associated with this website has ever won …
I start with events in Ukraine and offer a few thoughts. But I also look at a few companies notably Eurasia Mining (EUA), Versarien (VRS), ADVFN (AFN) – one of which is, I think, a buy – and also, en passant, the fraud that is Supply@ME Capital (SYME) and in the context of bitcoin tanking, Argo Blockchain (ARB).
It seems that Clem Chambers knew that Yair Tauman has the votes in the bag to oust him at an EGM that Tauman has called and thus the ADVFN (AFN) CEO has said that he will be leaving the firm on Monday. The terms of his departure, approved by his fellow troughers on the current board, are revolting.
I start with Ms Lingerie on Expenses after the latest bombshell. Then it is ADVFN (AFN), Union Jack (UJO) with its spoof from the Eurasia (EUA) playbook, Seraphine (BUMP), Peel Hunt (PEEL) and FinnCap (FCAP).
I comment on the weather here in Wales and then start with those sort of folks who engage in utterly reckless behaviour they know will ruin them. I think of vicars or Tory MPs having unsafe sex with rent boys in the era of the News of the Screws or of Paul Smith the, now ex, CEO of Morses Club (MCL). I look at ADVFN (AFN) and ask if its shares are now cheap at 63p? Then it is onto UK Oil & Gas (UKOG), and to Predator Oil (PRD) where I smell a pre-placing ramp and where the COO is now tweeting like a lunatic. Finally it is Guild ESports (GILD) and Cellular Goods (CBX).
“This may well be my last CEO statement and as such I will take this opportunity to wish shareholders, customers and staff my best wishes for a good outcome for all” wailed Clem Chambers as he announced interims. Quite frankly, after the dismal numbers he had just served up, I cannot see anyone wanting him to continue.
I start with the economically illiterate state broadcaster and almost despair. Then it is onto Gareth M Edwards, Duncan Soukup, Anemoi (AMOI) and Alina (ALNA). Then it is onto ADVFN (AFN), Eurasia Mining (EUA), Jubilee Metals (JLP), Omega Diagnostics (ODX) and Ocado (OCDO)
I start with the Carrie Antoinette “victory party” a few weeks after my dad’s funeral.This is the final straw at so many levels. Then I move onto news that the FCA staff are balloting on strike action over plans to scrap their bonuses. Then to lessons learned from the Novacyt (NCYT) scandal – where I did warn you! The chief lesson is that poor corporate governance often goes hand in hand with poor share price performance. I discuss ADVFN (AFN) in this vein.
I start with the University of Chester and despair. Then a win for the bears, well done Fraser. Then I look at Nanosynth (NNN), Advance Energy (AVD), Omega Diagnostics (ODX), Supply@ME Capital (FRAUD), Chill Brands (LIARS) and the GM called to sack Clem Chambers at ADVFN (AFN)
Grab your beer and popcorn. Yair Tauman, who owns 20.42% of ADVFN (AFN) has made his move, calling a GM to oust boss Clem Chambers and to bring in his son plus two incredibly high powered Brits as new directors. ADVFN says it is considering the legality of the request but given who the two new guys are, that is just playing for time. It is, I am afraid to say, laughable.
In today’s podcast I look once again at ADVFN (AFN) and the chances of a bid, I look at Wildcat (WCAT) and Tintra (TNT), en passant, as indicators of market madness and finally I have a detailed look at Mercantile Ports & Logistics (MPL), a company that should have been booted of the AIM Casino a long time ago.
Now that it is cash generative, pro tem, ADVFN (AFN) reckons that its shares are undervalued. Of course Clem Chambers, the globe trotting boss of the websites group, has been saying this for years as the stock price tanked and I reckon that Cheryl Cole is missing out on a damn good time here in North Wales. We are all entitled to our opinions.
I need to write this quickly so as not to interrupt the luncheon plans of Mr Roland “Fatty” Cornish, Nomad to this fine company. I would imagine that the start of Advent or the anniversary of the birth of Winston Churchill or the fact that it is Wednesday will be seen as good reason for a celebratory seven course meal starting as soon as Fatty has finished his elevenses. And so to rush. Fatty, you and your client Online Blockchain (OBC), the bastard parent of ADVFN (AFN) have goofed with final results today and those results will have to be re-stated. That is, if you care about accounting rules as much as you care about your reputation as the City’s greatest gourmand.
Once again we get an RNS reach from spoof company Online Blockchain (OBC) run by the same gang who run ADVFN (AFN) which put out its own comedy release today as discussed in bearcast HERE. But this one is so special it needs a full translation service. The translation is in bold.
a few more words on Umuthi (UHS) after today’s bombshell and on where it leaves the FCA. Then I flag up a few personal committments which sees me cooking like a dervish for a few days but then I shall be onto my next fraud expose which is also in Africa but this time with AIM listed companies. Then I look at comedy from ADVFN (AFN) ask a serious question abut Chill Brands (CHLL) and the proven liar John Story and finally discuss Argo Blockchain (ARB)
First up, would you rather listen to Joshua on Dinosaurs than to me on shares tomorrow? He thinks he is the world’s greatest expert but perhaps we should see how he fares on the Sunday quiz if Darren yields to his demands and has some dinosaur questions in it first? In today’s podcast, I look at the FCA’s new business plan, at ADVFN (AFN) and why Yair Tauman need to put up or shut up, at Online Blockchain (OBC), Supply@ME Capital (SYME), Seed Ventures (SEED – in detail – and en passant the fraud Zoetic (ZOE) and Orcadian (ORCA) which I backed pre IPOand which Peter Brailey writes up HERE.
Well not really and it was a long time ago. But it comes up when I discuss NightCap (NGHT) and why the numbers are all bonkers and it will end in tears. Then I look at Mirriad (MIRI) and ADVFN (AFN) parallels. Finally Amigo (AMGO) where the directors make threats that would be ruinous for them personally if they implement them. As ever, if you are bored, why not donate to a wonderful cause HERE.
I start on the usual subject. Please do donate HERE. Then I discuss a bull market and the bezzle and recent deals that are simply corrupt or wrong or deceptive. The case studies are Live Company (LVCG), Iconic (ICON) and Powerhouse (PHE). Anyone spending 20 minutes on the internet can see for themselves. Only in a raging bull market could folks think they would get away with such nonsense. I comment on the crisis at Bidstack (BIDS) and then analyse today’s trading statement from ADVFN (AFN) and what it means for the battle for the board.
I end with the usual appeal – go on, we are almost a third of the way there so please make a donation to Rogue Bloggers for Woodlarks now HERE. I start with MyHealthChecked (MHC) and the fraud Zoetic (ZOE). But the main focus is on beer and popcorn time at ADVFN (AFN). Will King Clem Chambers be ousted by Israeli brainbox Yair Tauman, an expert in Game Theory? I discuss and what it all means for ADVFN.
In today’s podcast I look at Remote Monitored Systems (RMS), Online Blockchain (OBC), Zoetic (ZOE), Zenith Energy (ZEN) - after today’s bombshell expose - ADVFN (AFN), Optibiotix (OPTI) and Skinbiotherapeutics (SBTX).
Two years ago after a bout of shameless ramping involving IR genius Steffi a certain Manchester based blogger and the company, shares in Online Blockchain (OBC) touched 200p at which point low life broker Smaller Companies Capital organised a £1 million placing at 100p.
In today’s podcast I start with PrimaryBid and the way brokers are crying foul on the London Stock Exchange backing it financially. Then onto, quite good, H2 numbers from ADVFN (AFN) but my real disquiet at the way my taxes are going on supporting the lifestyle of an overpaid board.
My wife’s young cousin – L – and her young man will arrive shortly to our house to cat sit and the Mrs, Joshua, and I can head to the Greek Hovel. I wonder what Covid restrictions there are in Greece and how they will be applied? Here in the UK, BoJo has new rules and I ponder if they will mean the death of Cineworld (CINE). On the subject of death, I discuss Versarien (VRS) and also its moronic shareholders and why ADVFN (AFN) scores an own goal in not banning them. I look at Coro Energy (DOG) and also International Consolidated Airlines (IAG), British Airways as was.
I had a long chat today with my stockbroker, City veteran A. Laiker Esq on what it is like working from home. He loves it. I sense so do many others. I have loved it for years, being essentially a miserable and anto-social bastard. Companies will also love this new trend in the post Covid era and i discuss its implications. I look at Intu (INTU) and what an awful position it is in. The shares are a zero but discuss the whole sector. I run through the latest rumours on Ascent (AST), reveal that it is Novum Securities that has welshed on a £200,000 commitment but report another (bad news) rumour that Ascent needs to comment on. I look at a good deal for Webis (WEB) but think my old pal Jim Mellon is taking the piss with his view of who qualifies as an "independent" director. Then onto the markets where we have another bad news is good day and finally the prize contest relates to the utterly shite results of Online Blockchain (OBC) snuck out at no-one is watching O'clock yesterday alongside the pretty shite numbers from sister company ADVFN (AFN)
On a daily basis, shareholders in Versarien (VRS) continue to make the most defamatory of allegations against myself and other critics. ADVFN (AFN) occasionally removes a post but seems reluctant to ban these halfwits defaming in defence of a fraud, so they just reoffend.
Oh dear, oh dear, London’s worst Nomad, Roland “Fatty” Cornish really does have a lot on his plate this morning. I refer not to his third portion of finest Manx Kippers dripping in butter, followed by a quartet of hot crumpets with lashings of strawberry jam. No, he is already in hot water over his advice to ADVFN (AFN) that it should break AIM Rules but now Fleet Street Legend Brian Basham has written to Fatty about another of his cash guzzling and worthless clients, Vast Resources (VAST) and, thanks to Winnileaks, I have that letter.
ADVFN (AFN) sister company Online BlockChain (OBC) shares a Nomad in Roland "fatty" Cornish. If you read the 2019 accounts you will be squealing with laughter yet the shares have rocketed 58% today. Why? No doubt Roland is on the ball and a statement will be forthcoming. I look at the madness at Davos, signs of peak bull market insanity and at the news from Westminster Gtroup (WSG) chaired by repellent pig The Right Honourable Tony Baldry of 3DM infamy.
Thanks to Winnileaks I now have in my possession a damning email sent by London’s worst Nomad, the restauranteurs saviour, Mr Roland “fatty” Cornish to his client ADVFN (AFN) advising it to take a course of action in direct breach of AIM Rules. I do not blame ADVFN for this at all but surely Fatty needs to be given an almighty bollocking by AIM Regulation for his latest crime?
It may well be that London’s worst Nomad, the Cambridge educated gourmand, Roland “Fatty” Cornish has, in between meals, invented a time machine. Or perhaps he is just not very bright but that the tutors at Pembroke College thought he was a jolly good fellow who had been to the right school and that the College VIII needed a bit of ballast in the middle? I shall leave you to decide.
In today's photo bearcast I discuss ADVFN (AFN) and London's worst and fattest Nomad, Optibiotix (OPTI), Plutus Powergen (PPG), Dods (DODS), Tissue Regenix (TRX) and Sosandar (SOS) whose antics are enough to turn a man to drink.
Both Versarien (VRS) and ADVFN (AFN) have been forced to issue major 'fess ups today directly as a result of my actions. I explain how both cases show just why AIM is not working at all, naming names why the Nomad system is failing you all and what happens next. And yes it is a day of fecking triumph for me and this website.
Shareholders have a right to know exactly why the Fleet Street legend Brian Basham quite as a Non Executive director of ADVFN (AFN) on Friday but despite Basham ensuring that Nomad Roland “fatty” Cornish was kept in the loop, ADVFN has refused to come clean. Luckily, thanks to Winnileaks, I have BOTH resignation letter sent by Basham and what they say is utterly shocking.
The full year results from Online Blockchain (OBC) do not look that terrible until you compare them with the interims at which point you start to ask just when will the money run out. This statement is terrible and, understandably, the shares – 200p at peak ramp earlier this year – have slumped another 3p to 22p-27p. Ouch.
I start with a reader request. I do as you wish. In this podcast I cover MySquar (FRAUD), ADVFN (AFN) and Totally (TLY) in the battle of the anorexic Ethiopian super model balance sheets, Avanti Communications (AVN), Purplebricks (PURP) and ripping off customers as a business model, and also Angus Energy (ANGS). Post bearcast I have just had a good chat with Tim Steer who has a book out soon. More on that when it is published.
Most of what was in yesterday's bearcast on Angus Energy (ANGS) stands. The ramping is sordid and the company MUST come clean on Tidswell-Pretorious and his sordid share dealings. But I do not believe there is a placing at 6p. I was played and discuss that. Project Fear cheerleader Mark Carney says a no deal Brexit could cause house prices to fall by 35%. I explain why he is talking total cock (again). I look at Amur Minerals (AMC), Pan African Resources (PAF), Obtala (OBT), Online Blockchain (OBC) and ADVFN (AFN). I did not ask how ADVFN is affected by the new EU article 13 on copyright breaches? I cannot think that it will be a good thing for it.
In this podcast I cover Tesla (TSLA) which is curiouser and curiouser, Optibiotix (OPTI) and the parasitic vampire that is ADVFN (AFN), Great Western Mining (GWMO), Toople (TOOP), Angus Energy (ANGS), the Brockham Well, UK Oil & Gas (UKOG) anmd its latest despicable smear c/o yellow journalists at The Daily Mail and cheered on by the vermin paid share rampers of LSE Share Talk
Brokerman Dan has been replaced as the maps man on our Woodlarks Charity walk on Saturday. Perhaps we now know why in his former career he did not always get away. For it turns out that the walk is not 32 miles but 33. Lucian has mapped it out in full. Cripes. We now need just over £2,000 to reach our £20,000 target so if you hav e not yet sponsored me please do so HERE. Get us to target & I will shut up about it. In the podcast I look at IQE (IQE), Rangers FC and another date in court for Dave King, Thirsty Paul Scott not understanding what research means & wanting me not to cover Sosandar (SOS), Cenkos (CNKS), ADVFN (AFN) and Online Blockchain (OBC), Highlands Natural Resources (HNR) and Fishing Republic (FISH) which, I think, is AIM toast in waiting
We may like to have a bit of a Turkish when posting videos featuring Clem Chambers of ADVFN (AFN) explaining blockchain but we still run a couple of newsletters together so, on that basis, if you want to go to Clem's great blockchain conference in London on June 13th there is a 30% discount on tickets for ShareProphets readers.
ADVFN (AFN) has today published its list of big advertisers on its website, oops I meant to say its awards for outstanding contributions to financial services. As ever I take the list of winners with the gravity that is merited. They really are the cornerstone of the financial calendar these days. But one fact screams out at me: BrokerMan Dan Levi was on a hat-trick as share blogger of the year - surely he had the title in the bank. But he's been robbed.
It is advertised all over ADVFN with - I assume - Online Blockchain (OBC) paying the full commercial rate. But here's a promo for free. How would you want free pizza with PR bird Steffi and the entertainment provide by ADVFN (AFN) and Online boss Clem Chambers. I say entertainment - have you seen this video below?
I hold no candle for either Roger Lawson of ShareSoc or ADVFN (AFN) but Lawson has made the most serious of allegations about ADVFN's AGM of last week which surely the company needs to answer and thus I bring Lawson's words to a wider audience. While he is at it Lawson has a go at ADVFN's business model and its blockchain spoofery.
Today Joshua and I have coffee with the fit young mums then we are off to go to his first business lunch. I have a work lunch and my boy is coming too. That is the deal for folks wanting to meet up on a Wednesday to Friday. I start today's podcast with ADVFN (AFN) and On-Line (ONL) talking pure 100% unadulterated crypto bollocks. Then it is onto Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO) - good news yes but given its track record of allowing insider dealing, misleading customers and investors and, arguably, wholesale securities fraud I would not buy. I look at The People's Operator (TPOP) and question the wording of today's RNS - the shares are 71% down but this could well be toast by Christmas - look at the wording again! Finally a few words on the latest news from the boiler room and the dog Sabien (SNT)
In this bonus podcast prompted by recent events at African Potash (AFPO) and ADVFN (AFN) I look back on other bouts of market insanity. There was the radio boom of the 1920s and the dot com boom of 1999-2001 but is the blockchain bubble at 1999, 2000 or 2001? Among the companies also mentioned are On Line (ONL), Vela (VELA), Milestone Group (MSG) and Coinsilium (COIN), where we have a small holding. Madness, my friends, is in the air.
Sadly illness is still rife in this house so for this Thursday it is no coffee for me with the fit young mums. At least I shall be in Greece in five days time and that must be restorative to my health. In this podcast I start by looking back on UK Oil & Gas (UKOG) and its death spiral. I explain exactly how it works. Then a few further thoughts on Falanx (FLX) and why I am not selling our shares at this price. Then I look at Alexander Mining (AXM), another mega spoof from Clem Chambers, this time at ADVFN (AFN), at "Nomates" disaster RM2 (RM2)Fishing Republic (FISH) - a good zero bet - and at Regal Petroleum (RPT) which seems to be in a spot of bother in Ukraine.
I would not want to play poker against ADVFN (AFN) and On Line (ONL) boss Clem Chambers. The man has pulled off a blinder of a spoof this morning with On Line which has sent its shares soaring by 50%. It is all bollocks but I take my hat off to Clem anyway for pulling off such a classic spoof.
I am a shareholder in Amryt (AMYT) which has had a placing today. I am furious and feel shafted. The shares are almost certainly cheap but I feel livid so am off, with Joshua, for coffees with the fit young mums. I also comment on i3 Energy (TOAST), 88 Energy (88E), Frontera (FRR) and ADVFN (AFN).
I flagged up a while back how some neo-nonce made inappropriate comments on the ADVFN Bulletin Board about my daughter turning 16 - see HERE. What amazed me were the comments that appeared elsewhere suggesting that - as with death threats received - "while there is no excuse for this , you do ask for it." Truly some folks are morally bankrupt. But not ADVFN.
Sometimes in business you have a moral choice. Do you accept the custom of an individual or not. As a libertarian I do not thing it should be for the state to tell me who I can or cannot choose to serve.
The joke awards from ADVFN (AFN) are here again and yet again Brokerman Dan is honoured as the share blogger of the year. Two wins in three years. Nothing to do with him being on the board of delisted & shamed Sefton Resources together with his pals the ADVFN bosses, running an online tipsheet with the ADVFN Chairman this is all down to merit. Oh yes it is. Stop sniggering at the back! Actually it is not the most "interesting" award.
Convicted criminal Aiden Earley has today sent a lawyers letter to ADVFN (AFN) threatening it, unless it removes posts made by certain individuals within 48 hours. The insurance policy ADVFN has is standard for Bulletin Boards and means that it is almost certain to remove the posts even though it knows that they are not defamatory in any way shape or form. So much for free speech in the UK.
The word on the street is that the AGM of Sefton Resources (SER) is to be held today at the Essex offices of ADVFN PLC (AFN) - the head honchos at both company's being the same. Flip flop Ben Turney, who now owns almost 13% of the stock says that ADVFN boss Clem Chambers has slammed the phone down on him as he tried to confirm this.
I rather like the ADVFN service, and having met its CEO briefly a few times I rather liked him too. And as a house matter, there was much to commend about the staunch resistance to pressure being applied on ADVFN to put clear water between it and ShareProphets was over the way in which, for example, the Quindell fraud was being systematically unpicked in these parts. That was not just an issue of free speech, it was a matter of exposing bad people and trying to save the shirts of our readers. So I have an awful lot of time for Clem Chambers, the CEO of ADVFN.
Flip Flop Ben Turney who is endeavouring to oust Clem Chambers and Mike Hodges of ADVFN (AFN) from the board of now de-listed Sefton Resources (SER) has accused the two men of "telling blatant and demonstrable lies to investors in Sefton."
This podcast is not just about the dog with fleas that is Andalas (ADL) and the motley crew of low life and fools associated with it. I also cover Highlands Natural (HNR), Mayan (MYN) and ADVFN (AFN) for whom I have a question. It is not exactly the most blue chip of selections today is it? The hot tip for a fiver I mentioned can be accessed .HERE
These numbers from ADVFN (AFN) were snuck out late on Friday. In part they relate to me and I can say that they are categorically misleading and so here I set the record straight. And then I analyse. This may well be commercially damaging for me but I am not going to stay silent this time as I explained yesterday HERE
Speaking out against Bushveld Minerals (BMN) today will cost me hard cash but I want nothing to do with this company after its sordid antics of last week. I plan tomorrow to look at how ADVFN's (AFN) results snuck out at no-one is watching O'Clock yesterday do not give a full and fair picture and that may also cost me financially. So be it. 15 years ago I was a failed whistleblower. I think there are mitigating circumstances but I regret it none the less and relay that story. Sometimes, whatever the consequences, you just have to speak up.
No more public service calls today, I would not want you thinking that I am a nice guy: yesterday was a one off! Lucian seems to have found a new China Norfolk over on the Nifty Fifty. I look at AEC (AEC) which should not be on AIM, On-Line (ONL) and its relationship with ADFVN (AFN), Glenwick (GWIK) and Golden Saint Resources (GSR) which - after this - is simply not investable or credible in any way shape or form. And there is more to come. On the bull tack I look at Independent Oil & Gas (IOG). Yes I did say bull tack!
There may not be a bearcast tomorrow. It is all down to the arrival of the Mrs as I explain. Meanwhile I look at Gulf Keystone (GKP) and XCite (XEL). The best time to kick a man is when he is down. So says Evil Knievil. And that applies to these two oilers where events are moving fast and the shares are near enough certs to be toast already. CIC Gold (CICG) is in an even worse state and today's RNS is a shambles. The curse of boy scout mugger Stuart Bromley strikes again. It is doomed. Then I discuss what, if anything, is wrong at TrakM8 (TRAK). Then a question raised by the share price move on Friday at ADVFN (AFN).
ADVFN (AFN) owns 20% of this website but that cannot mean that both as a public company but also a website many of us use daily, we can avoid asking a couple of questions after it snuck out interims at 5.45 PM the day before the bank holiday weekend - no'one is watching O'Clock. Moreover I am being berated by many folks for not flagging this up. I will now get bashed for flagging it up. I cant win so make no comment but just ask three questions.
I start with last night's/this morning's twitter tag team trolling of me by David Lenigas and Yusuf Kajee of Afriag (AFRI). I really feel pity for them and next time I go to Church ( December 24th) will pray for them. Then it is on to ADVFN (AFN) and its share price movement, to Blenheim Natural Resources (BNR) & African Potash (AFPO) an AIM tale of shame. Then I move into Riosslyn Data (RDT) and the looming placing, blinkx (BLNX) and Restaurant Group (RTN)
In today's podcast I cheer on Paul Scott in his twitter battle with Roger Lawson (see HERE). Then it is onto Globo (GBO) and where we are now. Then I look at the companies announcing at no-one is watching O'Clock yesterday: IGAS (IGAS), EKF Diagnostics (EKF), ADVFN (AFN) and Gulf Keystone (GKP)
A wide ranging little podcast with none of the bad language ( well less) in my earlier bearcast on CEB Resources (CEB) and its scumbag CEO Dave Whitby (HERE). In this edition I cover Globo (GBO), Daniel Stewart (DAN) – with breaking news - Northbridge Industrial (NBI), Auhua (ACE), New World Oil & Gas (NEW), ADVFN (AFN), Sefton Resources (SER) Holders Technology (HDT) and Northern Petroleum (NOP)
As expected today’s news from carry on Up the Sefton Resources (SER) signals the death of its AIM career but it gets worse, the new management team and its backers stand humiliated. The City of London is closing ranks against them
Carry on Up the Sefton Resources (SER) has helpfully given us an update on its death throws as an AIM casino listed stock – suspension could well arrive by as soon as Friday at 7 AM. The timetable of doom is thus:
You may well remember my six part acid trip with scumbag a'hole dirty tricks specialist lawyers Pinsent Masons HERE. I had almost forgotten but last night I was sitting in Free Speech & Liberty Pizza when a white rabbit wandered in wearing a T-shirt saying "Chris Oil - Sefton's saviour". I looked up and the white rabbit handed me a sugar lump. Heck. Why not. I'd had a good day. Camkids was on its way to AIM casino death row so I said "thank you", forgot about my diabetes and swallowed. Shroooooooooooooooooooooooom.
We all knew that at the October 6 EGM, team Chris Oil would win and that the current directors – bar Jossy Rachmantio would be booted out to be replaced by ADVFN’s (AFN) Clem Chambers and Mike Hodges. Sefton (SER) has now thrown in the towel but the drama is far from over.
Another day and yet more entertainment from the biggest joke company on the AIM casino, Carry on Up The Sefton (SER) – CFO Barbara Windsor, played by Raylene Whitford, has quit the board with immediate effect. WTF?
Since the end of last week there have been a number of online leaks suggesting an announcement was on the way concerning Sefton Resources (SER). Yesterday, the company’s share price rocketed 26.3% on no news, to close at 0.06p. It would be very interesting to know who was buying and why. Sources have now confirmed that Chris Oil, acting as Daniel Levi Associates, has submitted a letter of requisition for an EGM at Sefton, seeking the appointment of ADVFN’s (AFN) Clem Chambers and Mike Hodges to the board. This is surely unrelated…
It is well known that ShareProphets has a long-standing business relationship with ADVFN (AFN). Not withstanding this, the Daniel Levi affair has raised a number of questions regarding his relationship with ADVFN, which do require answering. The easy thing for us to do would be to ignore these questions, but it is our responsibility to report on this story thoroughly and comprehensively.
This morning, ADVFN (AFN) confirmed speculation that it has entered into a heads of agreement with the directors of London South East about a possible takeover. Although this deal is still subject to “certain conditions” being met, it has piqued our interest - why would anyone wish to buy the LSE Asylum, a website noted for publishing duff reports of broker notes and for providng a platform for the countrys looniest Bulletin Board morons?
Hello Stock Pickers: There are some websites, which are truly beneficial for sharesmiths like us. This one is a case in point – especially for warning us what shares to avoid or sell. Its 'buy' tips are extremely tasty, too. Except mine, mayhap. Ok, I'm highly biased.
