I end the podcast discussing what it is and what my short and long term targets are and why. I start with Brent Hoberman and when we crossed swords first and why he is such a wanker. That was back in the days of Lastminute.com (LMC) and it showed me how the British establishment always looks after its own however much they screw up. Brent was the founder of Made.com (MADE) which I discuss. Then it is onto Union Jack (UJO), Angus Energy (ANGS), IGAS (IGAS) and Uk Oil & Gas (UKOG) and fracking. I look at Bezant Resources (BZT) as wretched Colin Bird prepares for his next bailout with all the usual ramping. Finally, TP Group (TPG)
In the past it did not matter that Zak Mir took brown envelopes before recording blow-off interviews with CEOs and then publishing it and bullish articles as cliaming this was journalism. Sure it is unethical NOT to declare that you are being paid by a company to write a research report or to record an interview with it, but it is no crime. But it matters now.
I start with football and a question from last night’s West Ham game, concerning how society now views crime and criminals. Then onto the lessons from the collapse of Sensyne (SENS), the bastard child of Neil Woodford and sleazy Lord Drayson. Finally, I look at: Canadian Overseas Petroleum (COPL); Bidstack (BIDS); Angus Energy (ANGS); Sound Oil (SOU); the odd case of NFT Investments (NFT); and the Bixby/Edwards/ Frangos/Storey/Peter Wall gang.
In today’s Bearcast I start with a rant about Prince Harry. I suppose that, as a Republican, I should view him as a good thing. Then I move onto Omega Diagnostics (ODX) whose shareholder list seems stuffed with retards – Global Petroleum(GBP) and a placing rumour, Angus Energy (ANGS) and its shareholders being beaten like an innocent nanny, exporting two more British criminals to the US public markets and finally Made Tech (MTEC) where the maths just does not stack up for me. What sort of institutional retard backed this IPO?
I start with Mr Moulding who must be a decent chap as he gives vast sums to that beacon of integrity that is the Conservative & Unionist party. I discuss today’s horrible statement from THG (THG).The incident should also see firings at the Mail on Sunday and Sunday Times but it will not. I look at Omega Diagnostics (ODX) as it rushes towards a single figure share price and at Guild e-Sports (GILD), still a joke, notwithstanding today’s statement. Finally i look at the Sound Energy (SOU) bids for Lord Lucan’s Angus Energy (ANGS) Will Lucan get any more lucky?
On more than one occasion both Tom Winnifrith and I have commented that Steve Sanderson is over-paid. It’s a claim we have both made, but neither have us put demonstrable evidenced numbers to that. I thought it was about time to substantiate and quantify just how much larger Steve Sanderson’s trouser pockets are compared to his peers, in celebration of Tom Winnifrith's virtual walk to Horse Hill yesterday.
Say what you like about AIM dog Angus Energy (ANGS) but it has provided us all with a colourful cast of characters during its short and inglorious history on the AIM Casino. Right now, the man at the helm is Lord Lucan but how lucky does he feel in having as his non-executive chairman, a fellow Irish aristocrat Paddy Clanwilliam. Paddy also sits on the audit committee and is paid £68,000 a year for his sterling efforts.
In today's podcast I look at two utterly absurd proposals from Labour on broadband and on Inheritance Tax. Insanity. I also warn No Gold that he better get his £50 ready for me on December 13. Then I look at Angus Energy (ANGS), Optibiotix (OPTI), Neil Woodford disasters Kier (KIE), Eddie Stobart Logistics (ESL) and Non-Standard Finance (NSF). Then at Veltyco (VLTY) which is clearly insolvent. 95p to 1.5p in two years, thank God it had a female CEO to demonstrate the benefits of boardroom diversity for some of that period. Incidentally that CEO Ms. Blau earned 220,000 Euro for just seven months work so did a great job of closing the #GenderPayGap. Rejoice! Rejoice!
In the first half of this podcast as I look at UK Oil & Gas (UKOG), Angus Energy (ANGS), Brockham, Horse Hill and the Weald Basin ramp I am joined by comrade Brokerman Dan. Then, alone, I look at Woodford Patient Captal Trust (WPCT) including the key missing info in today's bullshit RNS, Costain (COST), Versarien (VRS) and Mirriad (MIRI).
I report to you from the Grim North, a phrase Joshua has learned, much to the annoyance of the Mrs who is, herself, from the great post industrial welfare safari. In this podcast I cover Argo Blockchain (ARB), Optibiotiox (OPTI), Plus 500 (PLUS) and Angus Energy (ANGS).
If you had followed the last two share ramps from Big David Lenigas you would be feeling pretty sore. In less than two months you would have spunked two thirds of your cash on Angus Energy (ANGS) and a third on Greatland Gold (GGP). Well done Dave. Today he is pumping UK Oil & Gas (UKOG) as you can see below but has he gone a step too far?
There is a lot of bad language in this podcast. Do not play it in front of the children. In it I cover Naibu (NBU), Daniel Stewart (DAN) and Pinsent Masons (WANKERS) and the latest from their legal battle. I look at TrakM8 (TRAK), Angus Energy (ANGS), UK Oil & Gas (UKOG), Flybe (FLYB), and AIQ (AIQ).
Below I bring you three tweets from the great promoter himself, Mr David Lenigas urging folks to buy Angus Anergy (ANGS) shares at up to 14p as recently as six weeks ago. Uh Oh those in his flock of followers who bought into this ramp must be feeling a tad sick today with the shares at just 5.5p after a statement that raises big questions about Paul Vonk, ousted as CEO last week and the matter of material non disclosure.
In this podcast I discuss a generous offer from Angus Energy (ANGS) then the kill (London & Capital Finance) now shown as a ponzi, and the possible kills to come: Alien Metals UFO) formerly Arian Silver (AGC) - stick that in your pipe Yellow Jersey motherfuckers - Telit (TCM) and Cabot Energy (CAB). Tick tock. Tick tock. I also look at Reach4Entertainment (R4E) and discuss what happens when bad management meets good assets and then what happens when a good manager arrives. Suffice to say, Reach is very cheap indeed.
I am plagued today by Bulletin Board Morons reporting me to the FCA, by Roger Lawson and some ungracious comments on fraud busting at Globo (GBO), Quindell (QPP) and Patisserie Holdings (CAKE) and by our former in house Bulletin Board Loon who has returned to really rile me with some vile comments on the holocaust which expose him as the Jew hating vermin that he is - HERE. I comment on Angus Energy (ANGS), UK Oil & Gas (UKOG), Domino's Pizza (DOM), Feedback (FDBK), Photonstar Led (PSL), Starcom (STAR) and Cabot Energy (CAB). Footnote, Roger is now planning to run an amendment flagging up that I did advise folks to sell/short Patisserie warning "something's not right". Roger you are a gent.
In this podcast I thinkI agree with Dan's tip. I then look at Independent Oil & Gas in light of Jim Armitage's article in the Evening Standard which takes this scandal forward some more. I cover ramp dog Chesterfield (CHF), Marks & Spencer (MKS), Gear4Music (G4M), Halfords (HFD), Starcom (STAR), UK Oil & Gas (UKOG), Angus Energy (ANGS) and the zero scenario, and Carclo (CAR). Tomorrow I may have better things to do than a bearcast as is the case every January 12. Or maybe not!
Angus Energy (ANGS) shares may or may not be cheap on fundamentals. That debate is for another day. But weighing down on this company is one almighty issue of corporate governance: the lies its founder Jonathan Tidswell-Pretorius told about his dealings with loan provider America 2030 in June 2018 and the cover-up that continues to this day.
Of course David Lenigas is not on the board of Angus Energy (ANGS) and thus had no idea at all that a heavily discounted placing at 9p would be announced today. And thus his aggressive pumping of the stock on twitter last week, as you can see below, is just another remarkable coincidence. Just like this one ahead of the last UK Oil & Gas (UKOG) bailout placing. Big Dave.., an AIM casino leopard who never changes his spots.
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.
I have been greatly distracted today. In part by some ludicrous piffle from Brokerman Dan, I explain why he is deluded. More importantly there is the growing sex and physical abuse scandal at my old school Warwick as I explained earlier today HERE. Today I have spoken to a second sexual abuse victim and been contacted by the new Head Master. Maybe something will happen. On the markets I look at First Derivatives (FDP), Angus Energy (ANGS), Purplebrocks (PURP) Totally (TLY) where Stevie Wonder could see that it is placing ahoy and Goldplat (GDP)
In today's bearcast I help my pal Mr Lenigas out and answer his question as to why shares in Angus (ANGS) are not rising after the Balcombe flow results yesterday. I look at Blue jay (JAY) where it is placing ahoy, Pantheon Resources (PANR), Optibiotix (OPTI) and in detail at Malcolm's favourite penny dreadful, Feedback (FDBK) and its risible trading statement today.
It has now emerged that Brokerman Dan attacked what he thought I said about Angus Energy (ANGS) without actually listening to what I actually said despite us giving him a 24 hour pass for bearcast access. He spouts an awful lot of piffle in his latest article but declines to print corrections. Poor Dan. Oddly on one major point he is almost correct. Moving on, I also look at Cenkos (CNKS), Frontera (FRR), Rosenblatt (RBGP), i3 Energy (I3E), MySquar (FRAUD), Online Blockchain (OBC) and Kellan (KLN).
Brokerman Dan Levi has again today insisted that Angus Energy (ANGS) is doing a placing. It will clearly have to do one at some stage soon but right now Daniel is being played, as was I last week. I sense market abuse here and once again the name Chris Oil, a man with form when it comes to market abuse and other nonsense, comes to the fore. As a reminder
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.
Update. Two thirds of this podcast stands. The ramping and share dealing comments are 100% fair and very serious. But there is no placing as this podcast suggests - I was "played" as explained HERE. David Lenigas is leading the ramping of Angus Energy (ANGS) shares as you can see below. A placing is on the runway, Then there is the issue of the shares sales by America 2030 of shares ex CEO and Company founder Jonathan Tidswell-Pretorious claimed to own as we reported here. Quite simply what Angus stated in RNS statements which is what we reported is not what happened and it has failed to acknowledge that and what has happened since. Until it does new Nomad and broker Stockdale must surely stop any placing going ahead - there will be one one day. Listen and despair of the AIM Casino.
First of all thanks for all the kind comments on the Woodlarks walk. The final photos and my final thoughts are HERE. It is not too late to donate HERE and that is what David Lenigas should do now as he gets his twitter knickers in a twist over his pre-placing tweets on UK Oil & Gas (UKOG). He now says on twitter he was an insider -in the US that would be a perp walk admission. The shameless old ramper is now batting for Angus Energy (ANGS). Elsewhere I cover Optibiotix (OPTI) and the odd Midas call, Wolf Minerals (WLFE), N4 Pharma (N4P), Arden Partners (ARDN) and Goldplat (GDP). Back to Woodlarks: next year I seek volunteers to join the 4 rogue bloggers. I now have 4 (PR genius Steffi, daughter Olaf, my pal the Euro loon Jonathan Price and Steve Moore), if you are up for it email firstname.lastname@example.org
After recent revelations here the position of Angus Energy (ANGS) founder and chairman Jonathan Tidswell-Pretorious was untenable and today he has “been resigned” from the board with immediate effect. But Tidswell will remain as a non- Board Operations Director, responsible for progressing all the Company's oil & gas operations while some oafish NED becomes chairman, in name at least. That is what the company says…
Only London’s worst Nomad, Roland “fatty” Cornish could have overseen the shambles at Angus Energy (ANGS) exposed earlier today HERE whereby its boss Jonathan Tidswell-Pretorious handed over all his 39 million shares as security on an (undisclosed) before signing paperwork only to find – with no money advanced – that 10.8 million had been flogged. But it gets better. Far better.
It is hard to know whether to laugh or to cry but it seems that the CEO of Angus Energy (ANGS), Jonathan Tidswell-Pretorious seems to have lost a stack of his shareholding in his company and, inadvertently, his range of advisers (led by London’s worst Nomad Beaumont Cornish) have misled investors. What a clusterfuck.
I start by wishing my daughter Olaf a happy 17th although she will not be listening and indeed wants me to retire so I stop embarrassing her by expressing my support for Trump, reservations about abortion or other crimes against the new world of 2018. It was Olaf's birth all those year ago at 1lb 4oz that got me involved with Woodlarks as I explain. This weekend my training walk will be 26 miles in this scorching heat. Think of me and if Olaf can spare a tenner so can you - donate HERE. In the podcast I explain why Julie Meyer must be stopped it is not just investors that need protecting. I cover FastJet (FJET), Action Hotels (ACHG), Akers Biosciences (AKR), Management Consulting (MMC), UK Oil & Gas (UKOG), Angus Energy (ANGS) and Amur Minerals (AMC).
This panel discussion was chaired by our very own Gary Newman and featured Jonathan Tidswell of Angus Energy (ANGS), David Bramhill of Union Jack Oil (UJO) and Richard Hale, assistant to "The Knife" in the City's No 1 oil team round at SP Angel
I have made the point before but do so again that not all death spirals - or alternative structured financings or whatever the MBA phrase is - are the same. Some can actually help the share price. Some really shaft shareholders royally. All are created in a way where the provider cannot lose but some are just usurious. Why, for instance, has Angus Energy (ANGS) agreed to a deal this week with Bergen which ensures that its investors will get so utterly rogered that no amount of lube can ease the pain.
Having asked for readers tips for 2018 for the amazing prize of a meal with Tom Winnifrith (or the chance to fob it off on someone you don't like) HERE, the following is a monthly update on performance (to be eligible needed to have selected, on a per username basis, a buy & sell pick from the LSE or AIM Casino and the stocks not to have been suspended at the commencement of 2018)...
Friday is one of my two and a half days a week when my 17 month old son Joshua is not at nursery and I am the primary carer. I am such a fucking feminist it is unbelievable. In fact I am almost expecting Harriet Harman to call for the Mrs to start giving me vast sums of money for being such a role model. Anyhow, I record with Joshua snoring so if I speak quietly it is so as not to wake him. In this podcast I cover Angus Energy (ANGS), UK Oil & Gas (UKOG), IQE (IQE), Versarien (VRS) and Sosandar (SOS), shares in which I am VERY happy to own. My son and heir is pictured snoring away below.
Shares in Angus Energy (ANGS) have plunged by 36% to 17.125p today after news from the Lidsey Field which cannot be described as anything other than disappointing. Hope meets reality. At some stage the same process will see shares in UK Oil & Gas (UKOG) crash. Let's start with Angus.
Following on from today's truly shocking results from Lombard Risk (LRM) covered HERE I have more questions for the company not least on how secure is its overdraft on which it is, I suspect, already reliant and on the quite disgraceful salary compatibility review. Talk about rewards for failure. Then I look at Defenx (DFX), another horror story, before issuing a wake up call to our own in house Bulletin Board Moron Wildes and looking at Angus Energy (ANGS) and finally Dialight (DIA). Meanwhile it is now less than a month to the olive harvest and Greece. I cannot wait.
In this video from the storming success that was the 2017 UK Investor Show, David Lenigas of Doriemus (DOR), David Bramhill of Union Jack Oil (UJO), Jonathon Tidswell of Angus Energy (ANGS) and Gary Newman discuss UK Onshore Oil.
