It was only just over two years ago that shares in the fraud Verditek (VDTK) reached 18p at peak Mike Walters ramp. But, like so many stocks promoted by old mother Walters, Verditek was a fraud and now the shares are just 0.6p. This website has exposed the way Verditek has made announcements about big new contracts on a serial basis since 2017, ramped the shares, got a placing away only to ‘fess that the contract was bogus. The problem with frauds, as Mrs Thatcher might have said, is that eventually they run out of other people’s money. That point will arrive within months.
I may have been born in the 1970s but I do not have too many direct memories of it. However as a student of economic and political history I have spent a lot of time trying to understand how we lost the scope and hope of the white heat of technological revolution to needing the saviour that was the blessed Mrs Thatcher.
Thank you for the kind words about yesterday's special podcast on my own website HERE. In today's bearcast I look at Carillion (CLLN) and Jamie's Italian, both of which are in dire trouble. I touch on bank bailouts, Mrs Thatcher (rightly) shutting down coal mines and the madness of Government farming/forestry policy. It is related to Carillion I promise!
