Tom Winnifrith Bearcast - if the FCA really cared about financial promotions Gollum would be doing porridge

In today’s bearcast I start with Cathie Wood of Ark Invest and another sign ( hat tip FP) that she is Neil Woodford on steroids and will see a mega blow up in 2022. The onto the FCA’s plan to crack down on financial promotions. My arse it will. If it was serious on this matter Gollum Gill would be in the slammer already. Then some consolation for Gary Newman with some words on Advance Energy (AVN). I comment on URU Metals (URU) and the there is Best of the Best (BOTB). Surely there must be a Steward’s intp the £60 million share dump by directors nine months ago.  But are the shares now cheap?

Best of the Best – interims, profit warning AGAIN!

Online prize competitions company Best of the Best (BOTB) has announced results for its half-year ended 31st October 2021 including “in line with market expectations as updated in August 2021”. However, I previously noted that “updated” was actually a massive profit warning, concluding with the shares around the mid 600p’s I want to see some evidence of the earnings “uptick” potential before reconsidering from the watchlist. The shares last closed at 606p but are currently below 450p, so what’s going on with the apparently “in line” results?…

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: A day in my idea of Greek hell thanks to my wife

I refer to the resort of Stoupa. My wife knows how much I loathe and despise it and why and yet I found myself there again today. It was, as anticipated, hell on earth. Forget subbing Zak Mir’s copy for eternity this is the real deal. On a lighter note I examine timelines of placings, director share dumps, profits warnings and ramptastic statements at Best of the Best (BOTB) and Braveheart Investment Group (BRH). In a world where anyone cared any more there would be a full steward’s on both. Of course nobody gives a damn and the world moves on. Nothing to see here sir.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Zoetic shares crash 20% in US

I start with a request to you all, to help me nail some villains. Please can you send THIS OUTSIDE PAYWALL ARTICLE to all your twitter, instagram, facebook etc accounts. I then look at the frauds Zoetic International (ZOE) and Supply@ME Capital (SYME), as well as Best of the Best (BOTB) which is not a fraud but is a stock that for three reasons I would not touch with a bargepole.

Best of the Best - Inline and Online

I covered Best of the Best (BOTB) last month, noting the positive trading update issued by the company and musing on the outlook given the rather expensive PE ratio at which the company was trading. Today sees the publication of final results which should reassure long-term holders that there are still rewards to be had here.

Time to buy Best of the Best?

Those of us who like to hunt in the micro-cap space are drawn like moths to a flame when it comes to simple, profitable businesses. And what could be simpler than Best of the Best (BOTB)? It rents spaces in major airports, shopping centres, etc. where it displays luxury cars in the most tantalising way possible, maximising the temptation for passers-by to try to win them. Of course, it helps that these punters are very likely carrying some loose change which won’t be legal tender at their travel destination.
