The previous owners of the assets within Ben’s Creek (BEN) went bust. This is a low grade producer in a cyclical industry and so I fully expect the pattern to repeat itself. The shares are down again today to 11.75p. My target price here is 0p. This company has always been drowning in red flags, I offer you a non-exhaustive list, perhaps readers can add others.
Luckily for MBU (mining advisor Mr. Adam Wilson of Daniel Stewart infamy) it has been dumping its shares in Ben’s Creek (BEN), CEO Mr. Adam Wilson of Atlantic Carbon/Coal infamy as fast as it can. Because today there is news of two more events in what is becoming an increasingly less slow motion car crash.
The FCA always tells us, when not lecturing us on climate change or the need of the financial services industry to employ more lesbians of colour, that past performance is no guide to the future. But the thing is that it very often is an excellent guide to the future. And that is one of the reasons why I have always regarded Bens Creek (BEN) as an accident waiting to happen.
If a company is run by Adam Wilson of Atlantic Carbon and Daniel Stewart infamy and also hires former Daniel Stewart boss Peter Shea on a chunky retainer the word that instantly spring’s to mind is sleaze. Another few words are inevitable long run value destruction. And that brings me to this morning’s announcement.
Gamfook was a Jersey Registered China play. That is always a good sign it was a fraud. It listed on the NEX lobster pot on Christmas Eve 2018 with Daniel Stewart, a firm with a fine history of floating frauds both British (Quindell) but also Chinese. The tale of what happened next is a scandal.
Thanks largely to the work on this website, the ludicrous proposal to reverse drowning in debt POS Atlantic Carbon into worthless Daniel Stewart Securities ahead of a Standard List came a cropper in early April as noted HERE. But the curse of doing business with Daniel Stewart and its toxic boss Peter Shea is now becoming clear for all to see.
I had to laugh at the basket case that is the stockbroker Daniel Stewart as it finally came out with the accounts for its trading subsidiary, Daniel Stewart & Co (DSAC), for the year to 31 March 2016, not just as it shows how worthless Rob Terry’s holding is but also, being such a quality outfit, it accidentally provided much more information than it intended to. It is worth taking a look before Daniel Stewart corrects it.
This is a small side issue in terms of the greater Quindell (QPP) fraud which will, in due course , see Rob Terry and others go to jail but this week Watchstone Group (WTG) as Quenron is now known suffered a minor setback against Terry and others. We publish the ruling in full below...
We asked you a simple question HERE. Look at the mugshots of the honourable chaps below and tell us the odd one out. For those who could not recognise the ugly sisters they were (top row first, left to right): Dodgy bubble Costis from Greek fraud Globo, Roger Lawson ( NOT a fraudster), the king of the fraudsters Rob Terry of Quindell, lyin' Chris Cleverley of African Potash, Peter Shea of Daniel Stewart and Jimmyliar Ellerton of Sefton infamy. So who is the odd one out? No-one got this one correct.
Oh joy upon joy, the accounts of ex-AIM Cesspit posterboy Daniel Stewart Securities plc and its subsidiary Daniel Stewart & Co plc have been published. As plcs they should have filed accounts to Companies House for the year to 31 March 2015 by the end of September that year, so the date stamp of Companies House of 22 December 2016 means that they were filed almost a year and three months late. But what joys there are to be had!
Say what you like about fraudster Rob Terry, the man is a comedy genius. I am sure that when he does get sent to prison he will be providing entertainment for his fellow inmates in all sorts of ways. But away from the shower block one way will be as a comedian. Terry's latest commentary on the "blog" of his new ponzi, Quob Park Estate is a comedy classic.
You could not make this up but fraudster Rob Terry is getting into crowdfunding working alongside Peter Shea, the boss of disgraced ex AIM Casino listed China fraud specialist Daniel Stewart (DAN). It was, of course, Daniel Cesspit that listed Quindell on a fraudulent prospectus and signed off of the fraudulent deals with TMC Southern, that conjured up entirely fictitious profits for Quenron in 2011. The SFO will sooner or later arrest Terry and he's going to jail, but it seems as if Shea is determined to implicate himself by association.
Maybe you have no shame and will tonight be attending the Daniel Cesspit (DAN) Christmas Party but are worried that you might struggle to make small talk with its useless boss Peter Shea and his dwindling numbers of staff? Fear not, just for you, here is a cut out and keep 13 handy one liners to use. There is no need to thank me, in the season of goodwill I'm just trying to help.
You can’t say were not warned! Shares in AIM-cesspit poster-boy Daniel Stewart (DAN) have been suspended yet again as the company has failed to release accounts for the year to March 2015 by yesterday’s deadline. But having just raised £1.2 million of cash just at the end of June at the ludicrous price of 3.35p, it looks as though the reason for the lack of accounts is because the company needs to raise even more money. It sounds horribly as though there is a little bit of an issue over getting an audit sign-off. Is this because of a lack of regulatory capital, a reluctance of the auditors (PWC) to pass the company as a going concern, or PWC foreseeing a shortfall?
Trawling through the dog’s breakfast of Companies House filings by Daniel Stewart Securities plc (DAN – the parent company) and its subsidiary, Daniel Stewart & Company plc I came across some loans by the Employee Benefit Trust. Tom Winnifrith has long held the view that the only people who make any money out of Daniel Stewart are those associated with its top dog, Peter Shea. In good years, pay and bonuses balloon. In bad years the equity is diluted and the share price gets pummelled. What, pray tell, is the total sum of dividends paid out to investors over the years?
This share price is simply insane. You can defy gravity bit not for long and at 1.35p Daniel Stewart (DAN) is capitalised at £10 million – it is at least 85% overvalued and so is the first of my here Easter short ideas.
All will be revealed in due course but this is going to raise money for Woodlarks, will be a lot of fun at UK Investor Show and I ask for your help. Simply nominate your top nine stockmarket knaves or buffoons of the past 12 months – all must be from different companies or organisations. For starters here is mine:
In light of today’s revelation that a Class action is heading towards Quindell, the fraudster Rob Terry and others I have just sent a friendly email to Terry, Laurence Moorse and folks whose firms may well become co-defendants in a class action suit: Peter Shea of Daniel Stewart, Bobbly Hilliam at Cenkos, Emma Kane at RedleafPolhill and Victoria Geoghehan at Bell Pottinger. Gents & ladies it is payback time...hope you all have good lawyers.
Daniel Stewart held its champagne Christmas party last night. Its own shares are suspended as it does not have enough cash but the crony capitalists need to party on. I filmed this video outside to make a few points.
As ever there was no shortage of readers keen to stick the boot into near bankrupt crony capitalist AIM Casino advisor Daniel Stewart (DAN), the firm run by Peter Shea that made millions floating Quenron (QPP). Earlier this week we revealed the shock picture of its IPO department headed by smooth talking Paul Shackleton and asked you for your captions. And the winner is:
Yesterday we revealed that while Daniel Stewart (DAN) does not have enough regulatory capital to operate as an FCA authorised firm it has enough capital to plan a lavish Champagne Christmas party (where’s my invite?) HERE. But it gets worse. Much worse. This is crony capitalism in a nutshell.
Shares in Crony capitalist Nomad and broker Daniel Stewart (DAN) remain suspended on the AIM casino as the financially challenged enterprise has still failed to get its accounts signed off and published. While we wait we have managed to obtain an exclusive image of its IPO Department. This is the part of the firm that brought you winners like Quenron (QPP), Naibu (NBU) and China Chaintek (CTEK), made £1 million raising cash for Globo (GBO) but could not quite manage to float China fraud Fraspens in August. So what will be its next offering? I ask you by midnight tonight to post a suitable caption below.
Let’s face it the firm that floated Quenron (QPP), China Chainek (CTEK) and Naibu (NBU) deserves to go bust so we won’t be able to laugh at Daniel Stewart for that much longer given how its shares are suspended, it cannot get its own accounts signed off on time and is almost out of cash (see HERE). So let’s have fun while we can. With a deadline of midnight tonight lets have your captions for the picture below:
Peter Shea is CEO of Daniel Stewart a firm that listed Quindell (QPP), acted as its Nomad and broker from May 17 2011 to January 31 2012 and which was paid handsomely in cash, shares and warrants for its efforts. As Nomad to Quindell it was responsible for ensuring that it did not do things such as hand cash to pals of Rob Terry or lie to shareholders but did it do its job?
Cenkos, Canaccord and Daniel Stewart are the three City firms that have made most money from listing Quindell (QPP), advising it and helping it raise cash. For these three City firms Quindell has been an enormous money spinner. And the last published research reports from these three fine houses all advise investors to BUY Quindell stock with price targets a multiple of where the shares are now. But ….
