Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: the shock 6.22 PM death of 4D Pharma - lessons everyone can learn

At 6.22 PM yesterday evening, 4D Pharma announced the reason for its "temporary" share suspension. It wasn't a messy and discounted placing, as I suggested here, but administration. Shareholders will, I fear, lose everything. I discuss who is to blame, what can be done (nothing) and the read-across to a raft of other stocks that could go the same way, including Shield Therapeutics (STX), Cineworld (CINE), Petropavlovsk (POG), Verditek (VDTK) and more.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast – today's news is a £240m damning of Neil Woodford's greed and wickedness

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.

Cineworld – another sign of the financial crisis engulfing it: target price buttons

The Mrs is threatening to take me on a hot date to see Downton Abbey at our local Cineworld (CINE). With a seventeen month old baby, any date will do.

One has fallen so far it is probably not a short now though I would not buy it while three look set to go to zero, possibly as soon as next week in one case. My 10 are Supply, Chill Brands, Versarien, Avacta (AVCT), Wildcat Petroleum (WCAT), Amigo (AMGO), Cineworld (CINE), Argo Blockchain (ARB), Verditek (VDTK) and Tern (TERN). I also look at the oil price and consider whether those sitting on gains might bank a few profits.

Cineworld and the £3 weekend a triumph but an irrelevant one

It would be churlish not to concede that if the aim of Cineworld’s (CINE) £3 tickets on Saturday was to pack cinemas, then the company succeeded. I am hearing numerous reports of packed theatres and even of some folks being turned away as all seats were sold out. Assuming that the folks buying the tickets gorged on diet Pepsi and sweet popcorn as is the norm, then Cineworld will have been profitable this weekend just gone. But …

Cineworld and the £3 ticket giveaway- things are getting desperate: stay short

The maths of running a movie theatre are simple. Ticket sales cover all your costs and the profit you make is on the hugely expensive high margin junk food, sweets and teeth rotting drinks you flog. But when audiences slump that means fewer tickets so costs are not covered and then tubs of ice cream sold so one struggles overall to cover costs. That brings us to Cineworld (CINE).

Lucian Miers and myself have repeatedly called out Cineworld (CINE) as a compelling short and those who have followed our calls have prospered. But the FT, the home of almost every wrong call in history from backing the UK joining the Euro to selling its gold in 1997, runs a story “Cineworld debt pile set to save cinema operator from bankruptcy.” You might think this is a reason to buy.

Does Cineworld need to deliver a profits warning?

In its November 15 trading update Cineworld (CINE) included a table, which compared revenue from months in 2021 with revenue from months in 2019.  This was an attempt to illustrate that cinema viewings were returning to pre-covid levels, the CEO specifically commented that “We are thrilled to see audiences returning in significant numbers”. As Tom pointed out then, Cineworld made these comparisons notwithstanding that October 2021 had five weekends whilst October 2019 only had four weekends.  Given that cinema viewings tend to cluster around the weekend, this meant that the October 2021 numbers artificially appeared stronger than reality.

The Botswana bounce and the cash strapped – a short list for shorting

I write after a day in which shares rallied sharply after Friday’s big sell-off. That shakedown was on fears that the Botswana covid variant or rather the extreme over-reaction to it given the level of hospitalizations and deaths it has caused (0 & 0) could see corporate earnings hammered. I noted on Friday that the sell off was driven by a false fear. Surely even the lunatics in charge of the asylum we call Britain will soon have to accept that the Omicron (an anagram of moronic) variant is no great threat and thus the new lockdown measures will have to be reversed and thus the impact on PLC earnings will be trivial. One would hope so. That growing realisation that our leaders have blundered is what, one suspects, drove the rally.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: GroupThink on Lockdown, Remote Monitored, Optibiotix and Cineworld

I start with the non-financial GroupThink but explain how this is relevant to three shares: Remote Monitored Systems (RMS), Optibiotix (OPTI), and Cineworld (CINE). And I outline why two of the three are screaming sells and one a screaming buy. Guess which? I refer to this article I penned earlier on how dissent from GroupThink is being stifled.

Cineworld – the answer to drowning in debt is ….er more debt?

Cineworld (CINE) is drowning in more than $8 billion of net debt. Its net assets at the half year were just $1.2 billion and if you strip out intangibles that number falls to MINUS $4.3 billion. With cinemas around the world either shuttered or likely to reopen to much smaller audiences, what to do? Yup…take on more debt.

You will have your own thoughts about President Trump's decision to ban European Union citizens from entering the United States, but it is clearly another impediment to global supply chains and that is not good.

Move into Movies by Looking at a Share Which Shouldn't Have Flickered as Much as it Has

Hello, Share Springers. I’m guessing most of us are film fans. Though maybe more of us rely on our big screens at home rather than trogging round to the cinema. It’s this change of many a lifestyle that has hitherto put me off investing in cinema chains. But there is one that seems worthy of our attention now.

Burberry - rare diamond in today's large cap choppy weather

Lots of larger cap news today but I have to say most of it is pretty sh...poor quality, which of course says something about the wider market…

Cineworld's big American bet

Almost everyone - apart from some cheapskate standouts or those lucky enough to have a next-generation home cinema capability - likes going to the cinema. In the wider scheme of things it is fun, inclusive and compared to many other trips out it does not completely trash the bank account (although the cost of a small plastic bottle of my favourite soda tipple Dr Pepper Zero was ludicrously expensive when I was stupid enough to buy one there). I have never owned Cineworld (CINE) but I have admired its progressive upgrades and solid management of my recent cinema and helped out by some half-decent blockbusters it has built up a solid position here and across various eastern European geographies. Cash generative, paid a dividend, growing market share...no wonder the share tripled between early 2013 and the middle part of this year. The recent share price chart has not been so hot though.

Why The Curtain Might Fall on Cinema Shares

Hello Share Samplers. At least one bank seems to like Cineworld (CINE) shares, but I won’t be buying into the company, nor any other cinema chain for that matter. The shares rose a bit this week when the Honkers Bonkers bank awarded them a ‘buy’ recommendation with a target of 720p. Today the share price is 540p, so that would be quite a jump.
