I have many criticisms of Nigel Farage but it seems that he is being persecuted by the banksters. Before you laugh, it could happen to you too. This is not good. I then look at Canadian Overseas Petroleum (COPL) where Gary points out a minor error I have made, Eden Research (EDEN), Echo Energy (ECHO), Premier African (PREM) and Tinybuild (TBLD). I forgot to ask in this podcast how Zeus Capital can be advising both Boohoo.com (BOO) and also Revolution Beauty (REVB) as they engage in such vicious verbals?
I misspoke on Kefi Gold & Copper (KEFI) though I corrected myself in the text yesterday I apologise again today. Then it is onto Joshua's Sports Day which has made me so unbelievably angry. Then to the ouzo moments as I look at: Revolution Beauty (REVB), Boohoo.com (BOO), Guild ESports (GILD), Avacta (AVCT), Bidstack (BIDS), Deepverge (DVRG), Gear4Music (G4M) and Microsaic (MSYS).
The annual weekend from hell looms. Think of my suffering and please donate to Rogue Bloggers for Woodlarks where, with gift aid, we are now over £10,000 but still more than 95% of you have not donated, you can do so HERE. In the podcast I discuss Lucian's suffering at the Supply@ME Capital (FRAUD) teach in and why its shares are collapsing, Versarien (VRS), Tern (TERN), Pan African Resources (PAF), Boohoo,com (BOO) and Revolution Beauty (REVB)
Young Steve is not well so it really is just me holding the fort on a day when childcare and the Young Mum's Group curtail my own hours. Notwithstanding that I bring you thoughts on the late Victoria Oil & Gas (VOG), Revolution Beauty (REVB) and Boohoo.com (BOO), Genflow Biosciences (GENF), Wood Group (WG.) and Pantheon Resources (PANR)
I start with walking to school with Joshua in the snow then cover being an insider (Kefi and Skinbiotherapeutics) and what it actually means. Then Mode Global (MODE), ouzo on my cornflakes again, folks were warned, Red Rock Resources (RRR) and its comical broker note, and finally today's trading statement from Boohoo.com (BOO)
After the slave labour in Leicester scandal, Boohoo.com (BOO) insisted it had done nothing wrong but put in place all sorts of ESG committees, procedures and staff to make sure it never did anything wrong again. Not that it had sinned in the first place, you understand. Today, an undercover reporter from The Times has exposed what happened when posing as a worker at the company’s Burnley distribution centre.
I start with Muddy Waters, Pete and Pantheon Resources (PANR). Then on to ouzo man and his bear calls on Boohoo.com (BOO) and AO World (AO). Finally onto the blow up of FTX and Almeda Research and what that tell us about crypto and NFT hype which is now bursting.
I start with a few words on UK press coverage of the mid terms. No the Democrats have not won! Then I look at bitcoin and its woes, Argo Blockchain (ARB) - bust by next week? - Revolution Beauty (REVB), Boohoo.com (BOO), Novacyt (NCYT) and Nightcap (NGHT) and the problems a CEO has when the media blows smoke up his or her arse for too long.
Sorry for the last Bearcast. Lots of things distracted me today. In the podcast I look at Boohoo.com (BOO) and on a related note the honesty of Waseem Shakoor. Then at Sosander (SOS), Bidstack (BIDS), Non Standard Finance (NSF) and Guild eSports (GILD) asnd also at the sense of denial in some quarters about economic gloom/reality and base rates.
It is my ninth wedding anniversary today and I am a lucky fellow indeed. Tonight a romantic meal at the local boozer with the Mrs. Having discussed this and answering my own quiz question I move onto contemporary art where i am glad to be getting out as claims of hs historic performance offer no guide to the future. Then I look at Revolution Beauty (REVB), Boohoo.com (BOO), Tomco (TOM), Cake Box (CBOX), Made.com (MADE), Asilimar (ASLR), Dev Clever (DEV) and Audioboom (BOOM).
Over the weekend I explained HERE why Boohoo.com (BOO) could go bust. Given the shocking corporate governance history here arguably it SHOULD go bust. Boohoo is just a bad actor on the PLC stage. Matt Earl, the Dark Destroyer, was an early critic of Boohoo but even with the shares having crashed to 44p, giving a £560 million market cap, he warns of massive problems ahead and quantifies the extra cash need: £200 million.
I start with a nasty shock my grandmother, Lesbia Cochrane, got in the late 1920s. This is relevant I suggest that a whole swathe of millenials could be getting a similar shock this year and that is one of many reasons why I pose the Boohoo (BOO) question. I look at its balance sheet, cashflows, shocking G ( as in ESG) and find myself agreeing with ouzo man. Thewn the chart below and what it means for any company including Purplebricks (PURP) , getting some PR dictated puffery in The Times today, exposed to UK housing. Finally it is 12 days to ShareStock. I am off to mow the lawn for the tents next, book your seats HERE
All is explained in the podcast but my pension has gone to nil cash after this trade. Then I look at Eden Research (EDEN), musicMagpie (MMAG), Cineworld (CINE), Boohoo.com (BOO) and Revolution Beauty (REVB). As of today 72 chairs will be needed for ShareStock on September 10. I am scrabbling to get them so if you want to attend please book early in case I need to do more scrabbling. Book HERE
Jeepers, the answer will shock you but is a reminder that Fleet Street does read this website avidly. In the rest of the podcast, as my son spends the day vomiting I discuss a work life balance that is becoming increasingly daft. Then I head back to work looking at Ariana Resources (AAU) where I disagree with Nigel and probably lose another friend (Kerim Sener), Chesterfield Resources (CHF), Boohoo.com (BOO), AO World (AO.), Parsley Box (PUKE), Mercantile Ports (MPL) and Primary Bid and what it needs to change.
I start with a few comments on paedophiles as yet another one is brought to my attention from Warwick School. Then it is on to the tawdry world of insanity that is Valereum (VLRM), a true nest of ramping snakes. I then cover Sosandar (SOS), Atalaya (ATYM) and Kefi Gold & Copper (KEFI). Finally, Boohoo.com (BOO) has made a very generous donation to rogue bloggers for Woodlarks and we are almost 1/4 of the way to target. Please make a small donation tonight to get us to that 25% mark, we are just £600 short, HERE.
In today’s podcast I recount three crossings of the border out of house arrest Wales into free England and on a visit to a local store. I discuss Carolyn Harris MP on kettles, a woman who makes Matt Hancock seem like Einstein. I discuss what a dead cat bounce actually is with reference to Malcolm’s article of earlier and also why I’m glad fund managers are telling MP’s where to stick it when it comes to who should run Boohoo.com (BOO)
And now from Wales, by just 30 yards, it is my new, I hope, weekly video show. This costs 99p per episode, and you can either listen to, or watch, some sparky interviews with Chris “3 brains” Bailey on his dirty secret, the real economy why UK shares are so cheap, on gold and his 3 top picks. There is also a detailed interview with the boss of AEX Gold (AEXG) who is not really 13 years old plus I discuss a new stock I have bought into heavily and also why Supply@ME Capital (SYME) has this week hoisted its biggest red flag yet, is a scam and is worth 0p. You can access the show HERE
A brief and early bearcast today, as I am heading off to Shipston to see my dad and with reference to the sterling price of gold, I have to explain why he is not quite as clever as he thinks. Then it is off to near the Coronavirus hotspot of Leicester to buy an antique wood burning stove. What exciting lives Joshua and I lead. I discuss where next for gold and why companies with no proven resource can be a play on gold & silver prices but are really just a gamble. I cite Alien Metals (UFO) as a case study. What a terrible dog. Then it is onto Mahmud Kamani, Boohoo.com (BOO), the slave labour allegations and today’s news. I read it as bad for the bears and good for Mahmud.
Today there will be little material from me on ShareProphets as I am recording videos for MineProphets all day. I have just done one with Ross Norman which was a total zinger. The content you will get for just £2.99 really is awesome if you have any interest in mining stocks. Please buy your ticket HERE. Elsewhere, I had a long chat last night with Mahmud Kamani of Boohoo.com (BOO) and I discuss that in full. Enjoy. I also discuss the daft RNS from Cambridge Cognition (COG).
I start with an admission that I am having PC problems which make it a nightmare recording sessions for MineProphets. to tackle this I went to Wrexham to PC World today and report on the true retailaggedon occuring here in Wales. I should be up andrunning and recording by tonight so grab your seat HERE. Then onto Boohoo.com (BOO) and thoughts on last night's bombshell HERE. Then onto Manolete (MANO). I rebut its pathetic rebuttal HERE but in this podcast deal with its attempted PR hit job on Shareprophets which brings the spinners at Instinctif into utter disgrace.
The most read non-Tom article this week is Gold ends Q2 on a high, Centamin, Ariana and a breakout? by Nigel Somerville is at fantastic number four or number 11 including Bearcasts and Tom's new shareshow.
I start with a few words on the end of lockdown for those of us living within 5 miles of England. Then I look at the growing scandal involving Boohoo.com (BOO), and its suppliers using slave labour in, Leicester, spreading disease and treating workers like, well, slaves. It is a scandal. But who will Baillie Gifford which wanks for Britain on virtue signalling ethical investing (see HERE) react as it is a major Boohoo backer? Now Matt Earl's words about bumper margins at Boohoo, in my second video show HERE, seem even more prescient. PS remember to book your seats for MineProphets on July 18 HERE.
A final few words on yesterday and a final thank you. If you have not donated to Woodlarks yet it is not too late and i am just £536.34 away from shutting up about it so perhaps a small donation HERE. Then I look at Peter Brailey's excellent piece earlier and press comment on Boohoo.com (BOO) and at the pay consultants who, in my view, should all be shot and issues of executive remunerration and greed. I also comment in this vein on Union Jack Oil (UJO).
Ouch. This is a compelling read from Matt Earl and his Shadowfall company which is short of Boohoo.com (BOO) and makes a very compelling case indeed as to why the shares are overvalued. The dossier is below , in full.
Ahead of another round tomorrow, at UK Investor Show 2016 there were five 'Dragon's Den' sessions where a number of CEOs each gave a pitch and three Dragons each picked one stock in which FIML invested £1,000. How have the dragons fared?...
I refer to young Steve's article earlier on the most shorted AIM shares. The fact is that most AIM shares cannot be shorted at all. There then follows a discussion on Sound Energy (SOU), Boohoo.com (BOO) and Telit (TCM). On a serarate note I look at LGO Energy (LGO). When the facts change what do you do?
In this bearcast, delayed by more upgrades to my PC from Mr Gates, I look at the appointment of an Oxford contemporary Charlotte Hogg as deputy governor of the Bank of England. Does it really say anything about the advancement of women? Then I discuss growth stocks such as Gary Newman's Fevertree (FEVR) and Boohoo.com (BOO), Finally I ask for your help please as I assemble a dummy portfolio of AIM Resource dogs just to see if market sentiment is so crazy that they fly. I nominate Golden Saint Resources (GSR) and Xtract Resources (XTR) now please can you nominate another ten dogs by noon Monday 13th?
Three generations of Winnifrith males appear today. Young Joshua is with me as I record and chips in now and again. we start with my father helping Boris Johnson with some of his history errors. Poor show Boris. Then I look further at Murray d'Almeida and Management Resource Solutions (MRS). I follow up my earlier Winnileaks massive expose HERE by asking if insider dealing took place? Then I turn to uber dog & AIM rule breaker Milestone Group (MSG) before commenting on Torotrak (TRK), Cambria Africa (CMB) and Challenger Acquisitions (CHAL). Then I revert to Boohoo.com, the unacceptable face of capitalism which I covered in a bearcast special earlier. I repeat my warning for shareholders: it is all about unknowns.
I am no fan of Channel 4, Most of its reporting is shocking. But the Dispatches programme today was superb journalism. It exposed Boohoo.com (BOO) and to a far lesser extent ASOS (ASC) for the way they treat management. Boohoo was truly shamed. Its management were shown to be shifty and deceitful in their responses to a film footage which showed quite sickening exploitation of workers and indeed law breaking. If I was a customer I'd shut my account down at once. There are legal and financial implications (bad ones) but the biggest will be reputational damage. How will the snowflake generation who are Boohoo customers react? Looker at #BoycottBoohoo on twitter and have a guess. All this is discussed in a bonus podcast.
At UK Investor Show there were five 'Dragon's Den' sessions where five CEOs each gave a five minute pitch and three Dragons each picked one stock in which FIML invested £1,000 via our most excellent broker J Herbert Esq at European Wealth. And so £15,000 was invested, how has it fared?
The Mrs is staying with the mother in law for another day meaning more peace and quiet for myself and Oakley and another day not to tidy up various messes that have been created. What bliss. In the podcast I discuss Kefi (KEFI), some very serious questions for the scam Highlands Natural Resources (HNR), Magnolia Petroleum (MAGP) and placing ahoy Strat Aero (AERO) as well as Boohoo (BOO) anj Asos (ASC)
Having asked for readers tips for 2016 for the amazing prize of lunch or dinner 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 a buy & sell pick and those to be listed on the LSE or on the AIM Casino)...
At UK Investor Show we ran five Dragon's Den sessions where five CEOs each gave a five minute pitch and three Dragon's each picked one stock in which FIML invested £1,000 via our most excellent broker J Herbert Esq at European Wealth. And so £15,000 was invested on Tuesday Morning. Steve will track this portfolio over the year with each Dragon at liberty to place a sell order at any time. And so this is what we bought.
Paul Scott may be Britain's top share blogger but today he served up the sort of grotesque factual innacuracy which would put David Lenigas to shame. I start on that matter and Birthday communications with the younger generation. Then it is onto Afriag (AFRI) - Incoming! Watch this space. Then to Boohoo.com (BOO), Aquatic Foods (AFG), MX Oil (MXO), Magnolia Petroleum (MAGP), CIC Gold (CICG) and London Capital (LCG). I also mention, en passant, Kefi Minerals (KEFI)
If you want me to analyse a stock for you just drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org - Today I look at shares in Boohoo.com (BOO), Redde (REDD), Savannah Resources (SAV) and set share price targets for all three stocks.
A few reflections on the AFCE Fraud conference today at which I spoke and on the Boohoo (BOO) supper with Paul Scott last night. Then onto Daniel Stewart, Caza (CAZA), LGO Energy (LGO), Wandisco (WAND) and Magnolia Petroleum (MAGP). Then the fire alarm went.
Interrupted by fuckwit PR men and a host of other things this is not a good day. But at least in 48 hours Pizza hardman Darren Atwater has the FSAL headache and I shall be away from acursed London and back in Bristol. On the podcast today: Outsourcery (OUT), Wandicso (WAND), Paragon Diamonds (PRG), Sefton Resources (SER), Fitbug (FITB), Koovs (KOOV), Boohoo.com (BOO), Daniel Stewart (DAN), Golden Saint Resources (GSR) and Blur (BLUR).
If you want me to analyse a stock for you just drop me a line at email@example.com - Today I look at shares in Boohoo.com (BOO), Intelligent Energy (IEH) and Xcite Energy (XEL) setig share price targets for all three.
This article was posted as a comment on ShareProphets but after discussion with Tom Winnifrith I am happy for it to gain a wider audience and Tom is very keen that both sides of the argument be heard. Tom's articles and bearcasts on Boohoo (BOO) are utter nonsense. Let's take each point in turn;
In today's podcast I cover Big Dave Lenigas, LGO Energy (LGO), Sefton Resources (SER) and Pinsent Masons and Boohoo (BOO), ASOS (ASC) and the unsustainability of super normal margins at a general level
Sadly for us bears most of the slam dunk mid-cap AIM shorts have already gone our way. We have had great sport with Monitise, Tungsten, Quindell, Range Resources, LGO Energy, Cupid, Globo (still more to come there), Gulf Keystone, etc. We won. The Bulletin Board Morons lost. Only Avanti Communications is still left to topple. It will. But now I think we have a new quarry to stalk: Boohoo.com (BOO) looks a slam dunk short at 33p.
It may very well be that the clue is in the name as far as the present charting position at boohoo.com, although cynics might argue that this state of affairs has essentially described the price action for the retailer over much of its lifetime on the stock market.
