When you look over the 30 most-read stories of 2021, what jumps out? Fraud busting. There are one or two tips thrown in there but what ShareProphets readers really sink their teeth into is the ShareProphets team digging into the accounts and showing up the wrong ‘uns. The author of all of the top 30 articles is….
It was, of course, John Story who engaged with Seth Freedman, causing the harassment of myself, Gary, Peter, and a poor PR girl some months ago. We know he is a proven liar and also a rule breaker. So has he been dumping shares in Chill Brands and not telling anyone via TR1? You bet. And I prove it in this podcast. I also suggest what Chill, its shamed advisers Nick Harris of Allenby, and arsehole journalist smearer Henry Harrison-Topham of Buchanan as well as the FCA need to do about this mess.
‘The best time to kick a man is when he is down’ is a quote from my friend the bear raider Simon Cawkwell, aka Evil Knievil. It is not a reference to individuals who have fallen on bad times for Cawkwell is, sometimes, not that uncharitable, but to shares in companies hitting new lows.
Shares in Chill Brands (CHLL) have slipped again today to a new year low of 17.75p. Ouch. To think that they were 76p when I published that 60 red flags dossier but of course the bulletin board morons, Seth Freedman et al knew so much better. The question now is about the trading statement and US sales update. What statement you say? Exactly!
On February 3 2021 I published a damning 60 Red flag dossier on a fraud called Zoetic (ZOE) with the shares at 76p. The response was utterly poisonous.
Cripes! This must be a record. First Sentinel was only appointed as corporate advisor to Block Commodities (BLCC), formerly the African Potash (AFPO) fraud on March 4. Today it has resigned with immediate effect meaning the shares are suspended yet again. The reason: exposes by the Sheriff of Aquis, a man whose day job is the Sheriff of AIM.
If you are have had an issue listening to bearcast via your Apple feed, let me explain why. It is the same reason I got phone calls at 6.43 AM on Saturday and 0.01 AM today. And before any folks suggest that in some way I deserve it, no journalist deserves this harassment and the wife and 5-month-old baby of a journalist never deserve harassment. Surely even the biggest chatroom moron can see that.
I think last night saw more phone harassment but maybe it was just pocket calls. Anyhow, I have spent some time chatting to North Wales Police about comrade Seth Freedman and the Zoetic (ZOE) inspired menacing phone calls of last month. They are taking it seriously. In the podcast, I discuss this plus the news that Hargreaves (HL) may be sued over Neil Woodford and the myth that there is a short position in small and mid caps to be squeezed.
The most read non-Tom article this week is Asiamet Resources looks in a stronger position post-placing – buy by Gary Newman at number six, or number 14 including Bearcasts and Tom’s new shareshow. Which one is the best of the week? Tell me in the comments.
In today’s bearcast I look at Zoetic (ZOE) and why its monster lie from April Fool’s day 2019 does matter, even as Seth Freedman, at the behest of a Zoetic shareholder, harasses another one of our writers at 11 PM. I also look at Peter Brailey’s call on oil, why I agree and how to play it.
You will recall how Seth Freedman harassed and insulted me over the course of 16 phone calls on 24 February. He said it was investors in the fraud Zoetic (ZOE) who had prompted him to contact me and that he would take pleasure in defaming me. Another Zoetic expose appeared here yesterday and like a puppet on a string, Seth is at it again, this time harassing Peter Brailey as well.
