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?
Have I judged Oisin Fanning of San Leon (SLE) by a different standard to, say, Neill Ricketts of Versarien (VRS)? Sure. Would I not judge, for instance, Cheryl Cole by a different standard in the looks department than, say, Diane Abbott? Yes I would. And I bet Cheryl is also better at singing, counting and more or less everything else than Ms Abbott too. Management is key to it all in the world of investing as I discuss today.
After 89 days the Golden Saint Resources (GSR) crowd funded debt death spiral organised by Crowdforangfels and its imbecilic compliance officer Gollum Gill was pulled last night. It had raised just £3,350 - just a little way below the minumum of £50,000 and the £250,000 target. This morning Golden has fessed up to the flop.
