I start with Ms Lingerie on Expenses after the latest bombshell. Then it is ADVFN (AFN), Union Jack (UJO) with its spoof from the Eurasia (EUA) playbook, Seraphine (BUMP), Peel Hunt (PEEL) and FinnCap (FCAP).
Bulls of Union Jack Oil (UJO), the company that uses shareholder cash to troll its own shareholders, advisers and journalists, have taken some comfort from the latest desktop study of West Newton. I did a desktop study of Cheryl Cole last night and that proves nothing either. It is all hot air. Only drilling proves anything and on that count Union Jack is a serial failure. But there is another matter: the cashburn.
These are the most-read articles and most listened-to Bearcasts of the week. The most-read non-Tom, non tip-of-the-year is Is it time for me to sell my Barclays shares by Chris Bailey.
In today’s podcast I cover Chill Brands (CHLL) and Guild E-Sports (GILD) as both prepare to publish results.I look at lessons learned, or rather not learned by the Oxymorons at AIM Regulation, from Deepverge (DVRG) and I comment on Union Jack Oil (UJO), its disgraced boss David Bramhill and its inevitable cashburn.
The elephant in the room is that Union Jack’s (UJO) disgraced boss David Bramhill has spent vast amounts of shareholders cash hiring spooks to spy on and troll shareholders, journalists and his own advisers as exposed HERE. That makes Union Jack shares toxic and today’s utterly misleading trading statement will not change that.
I name all those shareholders or their BB or Twitter names that Union Jack Oil (UJO) is using shareholder cash to troll in a most thoroughly unpleasant way as I exposed yesterday. I also comment on THG (THG), Cineworld (CINE), Tintra (TNT), Versarien (VRS) and then on the bursting of the Covid testing bubble with particular reference to Omega Diagnostics (ODX), Avacta (AVCT) and Novacyt (NCYT) which has its own BIG question to answer. Plus, of course, MyHealthChecked (MHC). I reference vaccination and covid rates in Israel in the podcast which is covered in more detail HERE.
I start with a belated Happy Birthday which I hope you will join me in saying. Then onto what NFT’s of farts in a jar tells us about this insane world of investment. That naturally leads onto David Bramhill and Union Jack Oil (UJO) and today’s utterly shock expose. It left me in a sort of moral quandry but I decided I had to publish. So what next?
I have been sent a new document sent by corporate spooks Fortisat to its client Union Jack Oil (UJO), “Investigation Update Report” 22nd October. It is utterly damning and suggests that the company was aware and sanctioning activity which is a clear breach of the rules set out by the Information Commissioner, not to say utterly creepy. Resignations or sackings must surely result from this expose. In today’s article I shall name some of those targetted by Union Jack and is shameless boss David Bramhill.
In today’s Bearcast I look at Bitcoin and at Argo Blockchain (ARB), at Sosandar (SOS), at the increasingly uber toxic Union Jack Oil (UJO), at Vast Resources (VAST) and at Eurasia Mining (EUA)
Just when you thought that the scandal of Union Jack Oil (UJO) blowing £45,000 to produce reports containing creepy personal details, factual errors and no conclusions of import on journalists and its own shareholders could not get any worse, it does.
For the third year, I’m going to belch forth and see if my crystal balls (being an Engineer I don’t put all my eggs in one basket) can spot the oily sector shares which just make me retch when I think about holding them. Most investors are coalescing around the view oil prices will be stable to up chucking, but can we congeal around those sector investment cases that really make you toss your cookies? The 2022 Vomit list – I would rather hold a bucket of puke than these shares.
Between now and January 3 all of our writers will be serving up their share tips of the year for 2022. We start the series with a BUY from Peter Brailey. We can safely say that it is not Union Jack Oil (UJO).
I start with my personal experience of the NHS today and how much I’d like to see all GPs lined up againat a wall and shot. I am so bloody angry. Then it is onto Union Jack Oil (UJO), Chill Brands (CHLL), Tern (TERN), the fraud Supply@ME Capital (FRAUD) and Hurricane Energy (HUR)
Only kidding. These rules are bonkers. I discuss looming covid tests as I start to prepare to make my way back to Airstrip One. Then it is onto Nomad SP Angel and two of its clients, Versarien (VRS) and Union Jack Oil (UJO). Will John Meyer and his colleagues do thedecent thing for once?
It is not shock at all that the top non-Tom article this week is Union Jack Oil – Trolling journalists and their girlfriend and ex wife: Who’s a total scumbag? Mr David Bramhill by Peter Brailey at number one or, iif you include the Bearcasts, number one. This one is a must-read, folks.
As Peter disclosed earlier this week he is the journalist on this website that Union Jack Oil (UJO) paid the bastards at Fortisat to compile a dossier on with all sorts of very personal information plus ludicrous assertions. David Bramhill, the now disgraced, boss of Union Jack has admitted that there are around 20 such dossiers. Peter has now written, as you can see in a redacted manner to protect private addresses and phone numbers, to Union Jack demanding that it hand him any of the 20 dossiers which mention him. David Bramhill promises me …
The olive harvest is almost done, bearcast listener and harvester B and I finished today as the heavens opened. So I am a bit wet but it is done. More details on my own site tomorrow when I shall have a full day at my desk. Today I talk about the Government’s mad new covid laws then about how shareholders in Red Rock Resources (RRR), Union Jack Oil (UJO) and, increasingly, Tern (TERN) and Versarien (VRS) should be careful what they wish for.
I comment on day three of the Greek Hovel olive harvest, a good day but a long one. But I start with Peter Brailey’s piece on Union Jack Oil (UJO) and explain why the company is now possibly the most toxic on AIM. I then look, en passant, at Amala Foods (DISH) and in detail at Tern (TERN) and Argo Blockchain (ARB).
Tom recently revealed that an AIM company had apparently spent £40,000 investigating the background of a journalist on this site. I understand the revolting dossier included details of the writer, his partner and his Ex and his business. The report was trying to pin the leaking of this companies’ placings on an individual, and doing so in a very nasty way. I have not seen the report. Tom has it and has let me know the highlights. So, Mr David Bramhill, of Union Jack Oil (UJO), step forward and take the honours. You investigated me with your £40,000 Private Investigators. You, Mr Bramhill, are a xxxx — and I make no apologies for that language. You are Scum.
I do not name the company but the dossier is one one of the journalists here. It concludes that he has done nothing wrong but it goes through utterly uncalled for very personal details about him, his world view, his girl friend, his work and more. It made my skin crawl and the company that spunked £40,000 on this document should be utterly ashamedof itself. I have put in a call and let it know that behaving like this towards one of our journalists is asking for a lot of trouble. It is repellant and I am on the warpath. I then look at theSP Angel/Union Jack Oil (UJO) scandal, at Nanosynth (NNN), Powerhouse (PHE) explaining the RNS/RNS Reach issue in full.Finally I discuss Skinbiotherapeutics (SBTX).
A couple of years ago we exposed how SP Angel had been ramping the arse off Bluejay Mining (JAY) with ludicrous price targets while secretly dumping its entire holding at a fraction of the stated target. In other words it was selling its shares to the same folks who wanted to buy because of its ramping. SP Angel should have lost its license from the FCA then and the regulators should have been pressing charges against the individuals involved. The regulators did nowt and now we come to Union Jack Oil (UJO).
In today’s Bearcast I refer to my earlier podcast on the Botswana variant market sell off but take that forward to specific stocks to be buying and shares to be selling as a result. Then I look at Optbiotix (OPTI) and whether Steve O’Hara has been a naughty boy, ADM Energy (ADME) and my expose of earlier HERE – you ain’t seen nothing yet - and Union Jack Oil (UJO).
The top non-Tom article this week is Oil and Gas– I think an inflection point has been reached: oil could hit $200 and here is why by Peter Bailey at number three or number eight if you include the Bearcasts.
My esteemed colleague Peter Brailey waxes lyrical about an interview that his friend and, in past days mine, David Bramhill of Union Jack Oil (UJO) has given with Proactive. Peter says that it is “One of the best interviews I have watched.” If that is the case he should get out more. To me this paid for interview is an exercise in folly and self-deception and makes Union Jack uninvestable.
David (Dave) Bramhill of Union Jack Oil (UJO) put an interview into the public domain yesterday. While I am not a shareholder currently, I was most impressed. It is worthy of noting any CEO / Exec Chairman who acts with apparent and demonstrable honesty and openness and I wish many more would do so. He did not duck hard questions – far from it. I should say Tom disagrees with me viiolently and explains why HERE.
Union Jack Oil (UJO) states that it “is pleased to announce an update in respect of the West Newton A-1, A-2 and B-1z discovery wells as part of the Extended Well Test programme, accompanied by an updated estimated best estimate in-place oil and gas volumetrics of the Kirkham Abbey reservoir”. The shares have responded more than 6% lower to 18p to sell, so is the news really ‘pleasing’?
This is a shocking revelation which I discuss in detail. It shows the Big 4 accountancy firms are actually incentivising partners to engage in risky and incorrect business practices by indemnifying them against all costs if they are found out. The Big 4 then treat such fines as just another cost of doing business. What is going on is a disgrace which expses the moral bankruptcy at the heart of the accountancy establishment and must force the FRC to rethink punishments. I also discuss Ariana Resources (AAU) and why it needs no PR but especially the shysters it currently uses, the deafening silence at Chill Brands (CHLL) which marks it out as a zero and Union Jack Oil (UJO) where I suspect it is tme to give up and look elsewhere in the sector.
The top non-Tom article this week is Union Jack Oil – I have lost faith by Peter Brailey at number 2 or number 7 if you include the Bearcast.
Union Jack Oil (UJO), has be one of the most frustrating share listed on AIM as it holds so much potential within its UK onshore oil and gas asset base. But with any microscale oiler looking to establish a profitable future you have to have to believe in what it is doing, and the shenanigans over this latest placing is the final straw for me. The risk reward balance has now tipped the wrong way and I have lost the faith.
I have an update on the Union Jack (UJO) placing which I forced it to ‘fess up to last Friday and I can now reveal that worthless ramp Wildcat Petroleum (WCAT) is now seeking fresh equity at almost any price. At 1p, a £21 million market cap is about £21 million too high in my book. I also discuss Jubilee Metals (JLP) and Mark Slater and that links nicely to an IPO I am dodging and I explain why I am passing on what appeared a likeable and competent team. Finally, a detailed look at perennial dog Mirriad (MIRI) whose shares are – despite slipping 10% today – still a stonking sell.
I stand by my comments over the weekend on the strategy and possible placing at Union Jack Oil (UJO) which I forced it to ‘fess up to on Friday. I am not a happy bunny. But there is another thing that rather frustrates me.
Quindell (QPP) was the first. Maybe there has been another, Anyhow I look in great detail at Eurasia Mining (EUA) but akso at a spoof from cash strapped Verditek (VDTK), more on Union Jack Oil (UJO) and signs of trouble at mill for Colin Bird and Bezant Resources (BZT).
The top non-Tom article this week is My Gold Stocks, and Time To Revisit One I Let Go? by Nigel Somerville at number 4 or number 9 if you include the Bearcast.
Forgive the late bearcast but I was cooking amazing grub for relatives today including long lost cousin C. On the subject of families, congratulations to listeners Matthew & his dog who frequently request more swearing as Matthew has got engaged. In the podcast I discuss two no-one is watching O’clock statements yesterday from MyHealthChecked (MHC) and from Union Jack Oil (UJO). I do not mince my words on either.
I am a bit of a sweaty wreck as I prepare for a weekend of hell. I explain why. In the podcast I deal with Unon Jack Oil (UJO) and my article of earlier and of the issue of who CEO’s should do interviews with. In the end of course the share price is driven not by how much time is spent ramping the stock but by whether a company generates cash and how much.
This is the market rumour. Shard rather than the listed broker the fraudster’s pals SP Angel is apparently running the book. I have given the company the opportunity to deny it but it seems to have declined that opportunity. Apparently much of the cash is for an acquisition the rest for general corporate purposes yak yak yak. Given the broker apparently in charge…
A “West Newton Update” announcement follows, not entirely accurate, comment from Brokerman Dan and bulletin board mutterings. A first point is that West Newton is operated by Rathlin Energy (UK) Limited, with Union Jack Oil (UJO) having a 16.665% economic interest, and therefore not having direct ownership of the situation. So what is the latest update?
In today’s bearcast I look at Salt Lake Potash (SO4), MyHealthChecked (MHC), Supply@ME Capital (SYME), Chill Brands (CHLL) and Union Jack Oil (UJO) as well as at internet trolls who want me dead.
Union Jack Oil (UJO) has announced news on the West Newton B-1Z well, in which it has a 16.665% interest, that it is “encouraged by the indications of permeability of the lower portion of the Kirkham Abbey under test, and the initial recovery of hydrocarbons to surface”. What’s the detail of the ‘encouragement’?
Shares in Union Jack Oil (UJO) are 9% lower at 29p thanks to an article penned by my friend Brokerman Dan suggesting that all may not be well at the West Newton drill. Ho hum, a quick break from afternoon playtime with Joshua as calls go out from the Greek Hovel.
Union Jack Oil (UJO) has announced that all necessary consents have been received for the final phase of achieving targeted oil production from the Ashover Grit reservoir, one of the three productive reservoirs present at Wressle, following its 2020 results.
Union Jack Oil (UJO) is “delighted to report that mobilisation in respect of well testing, initially on the West Newton B-1Z well, is expected to commence in May 2021”. That means that significant news flow is ahoy.
Union Jack Oil (UJO) has announced an online consultation has been launched as part of a public planning consultation process on a proposed hydrocarbon development of the West Newton A site (‘WNA’). So what’s the import?
Union Jack Oil (UJO) has announced that it has agreed to acquire a further 15% economic interest in PEDL253 containing the Biscathorpe project, to increase its interest there to 45%, and the shares have edged up. Is Mr Market right or wrong?…
Union Jack Oil (UJO) has noted an update from the operator on progress at the Wressle (Union Jack – 40%), North Lincolnshire, hydrocarbon development site after the workover rig and associated services and equipment have been successfully mobilised…
The most read non-Tom article this week is Ariana – Ozaltin Deal Conditional Agreement Completed, cracking news – last chance to buy? by Nigel Somerville (for an unheard-of ninth week in a row) at a fantastic number four or at number nine, including Bearcasts and Tom’s new shareshow.
Updating you all on Union Jack Oil (UJO) last month, we noted on the shares falling to 0.12p on a drilling update from West Newton (Union Jack Oil: 16.665%) that Kirkham Abbey remains very much in play, with the indicated hydrocarbon charge and the location confidence noted on the swift side-track… Initially targeting a recovery to 0.20p+, Buy. That call has been vindicated…
Having had an involvement in UK onshore drilling decades ago, I follow the sector with interest, and just occasionally my cash. For some time now Union Jack Oil (UJO) has seen me invest and cross my fingers. West Newton has really interested me. Today’s news on the WN-B1Z drill results is a further very positive result, for what could be an exceptional find.
Union Jack Oil (UJO) has updated investors with news including that it is to provide a £1 million loan facility to Wressle oil field (Union Jack: 40% economic interest) operator Egdon Resources (EDR), which “as well as providing a commercial return on funds will also assist in the development of the Wressle oil field”, and Wressle “workover being completed and initial oil flows anticipated later in January 2021”…
Union Jack Oil (UJO) “is pleased to provide an update on the West Newton B-1 appraisal well (WNB-1)”. The shares though responded to the update around 20% lower at 0.12p, so what’s going on?…
ShareSoc has a question about PE backed IPO’s like the AA (AA). I answer it. I discuss the modus operandi of Chris Akers with reference to Trafalgar Property (TRAF) and then long chats with David Bramhill of Union Jack Oil (UJO) which looks a great trading buy and then with another old geezer, that is to say my broker.
Whenever a smaller oil company is drilling a well these days you pretty much have to expect the share price to get hammered unless they announce a substantial find that exceeded market expectations, and that is exactly what hammered to Union Jack Oil (UJO) this week.
I answer this question as best I can as there has been internet commentary suggesting that it is. After Supply@ME Capital (SYME), I look at another POS, Bidstack (BIDS) and a third in TrakM8 (TRAK). Then it is onto Union Jack Oil (UJO), Reabold (RBD) and Concepta (CPT) where – do not laugh – I am really very excited.
Union Jack Oil (UJO) has announced that the West Newton B-1 well (WNB-1) has spud with completion expected to take six to ten weeks…
On Thursday, there was a “Response to Market Speculation” announcement from Union Jack Oil (UJO), noting “recent market speculation relating to a potential fundraising”…
And now from Wales, by just 30 yards, it is my new, I hope, weekly video show. This costs 99p per episode, and you can either listen to, or watch some sparky interviews with Nigel Somerville on gold and where it goes next, on how to play the gold bull market, what stocks to buy and what non stocks to buy and how a gold bug positions the rest of his portfolio. Then Paul Atherley from a non gold miner, Pensana Rare Earths (PRE), a play on all this green shit everyone – bar me – seems to love. And I explain why I have bought Pensana shares even though I think man-made global warming is utter bunkum. Finally two stocks where the valuation is insane: Dev Clever (DEV) and Trainline (TRN). You can access the show HERE
And now from Wales, by just 30 yards, it is my new, I hope, weekly video show. This costs 99p per episode, and you can either listen to, or watch some sparky interviews with Richard Poulden on the collapse of empires but also of the West at every level. Also covered is the death of oil and how we should save our finances against such a backdrop and with Kerim Sener of Ariana (AAU). I also explain why Supply@ME Capital (SYME) is a crooked zero and I review the six short ideas from the previous five shows, one of which is already a zero. You can access the show HERE
It would appear Reabold Resources (RBD) is looking to take over Deltic Energy (DELT) with an all share deal that values Deltic at less than the cash on the balance sheet. My response to Reabold as a shareholder of Deltic is simple – sod off at any share conversion valuation.
And now from Wales, by just 30 yards, it is my new, I hope, weekly video show. This costs 99p per episode to access and you can either listen or watch very sparky interviews with our Gary Newman on mining stocks to buy, why gold is NOT going to soar, a compelling £1.7 billion non-mining short and fishing shares, Harry Adams the boss of Kefi (KEFI) - a stock I own - and myself on why Cineworld (CINE) deserves to go bust, wont, but is a stonking short none the less. You can access the show HERE
And now from Wales, by just 30 yards, it is my new, I hope, weekly show. This costs 99p per episode to access and you can either listen or watch very sparky interviews with our in house gold guru Nigel Somerville on why you must be in gold and on the stocks or ETFs to own to maximise your bull market gains and with Union Jack Oil (UJO) boss David Bramhill, the most underpaid oil CEO on AIM. I also serve up a red flag-spotting session with reference to Diversified Gas & Oil (DGOC). You can access the show HERE
Union Jack Oil (UJO) “is pleased to announce” both an agreement to purchase a further 3% interest in PEDL253 and a settlement agreement with Humber Oil & Gas Limited...
Union Jack Oil (UJO) has announced it “is pleased to publish the positive conclusions of a Carbon Intensity Study on the West Newton hydrocarbon project”...
A final few words on yesterday and a final thank you. If you have not donated to Woodlarks yet it is not too late and i am just £536.34 away from shutting up about it so perhaps a small donation HERE. Then I look at Peter Brailey's excellent piece earlier and press comment on Boohoo.com (BOO) and at the pay consultants who, in my view, should all be shot and issues of executive remunerration and greed. I also comment in this vein on Union Jack Oil (UJO).
On more than one occasion both Tom Winnifrith and I have commented that Steve Sanderson is over-paid. It’s a claim we have both made, but neither have us put demonstrable evidenced numbers to that. I thought it was about time to substantiate and quantify just how much larger Steve Sanderson’s trouser pockets are compared to his peers, in celebration of Tom Winnifrith's virtual walk to Horse Hill yesterday.
Union Jack Oil (UJO) “is pleased to announce that it has agreed to acquire a further 12.5% economic interest in PEDL180 and PEDL182 containing the Wressle hydrocarbon development project”...
But is Union Jack Oil (UJO) not a UK oil producer in an extremely troubled oil environment? It is… but only in a small and low-cost way and the oil market will swing back to a better environment as it always does. Meanwhile, the shares down from more than 0.30p last year and the asset potential here sees us ride again…yes, we have twice tipped this before and twice told you to bank big gains. Now for our hat-trick...
Readers know I focus on the oily investment space and try to track the macro picture as well as the detail of specific investments cases. I thought it only appropriate with the current oil price turbulence to offer a few views on my own, which I free admit are influenced by other respected commentators. I hope this is useful in forming and reforming opinions on investment cases in the sector.
In today's podcast I look at the British Journalism Awards and Neil Woodford ( no shocks here folks), Union Jack Oil (UJO) and that planned placing, Tissue Regenix (TRX) as the FD walks, FastForward Innovations (FFWD), and at Plutus Powergen (PPG) , dire news and surely looming insolvency and yet more evidence of not gviving a flying wotsit about stockmarket rules.
In this eighth edition of the ShareProphets Radio podcast, sponsored by Yorkville Advisors, in order I discuss my guest next week (the biggest name yet on the show) and Burford (BUR) and the more general issue of revenue recognition. I then chat for about an hour to liberatrian comedian, songwriter and singer, Brexit Party activist, gold & bitcoin guru Dominic Frisby. Prepare for a few laughs. Then it is Cathal Friel of Open Orphan (ORPH), where I am a shareholder, and finally David Bramhill of Union Jack Oil (UJO). After that section I discuss nearology with reference to Union Jack, UK Oil & Gas (UKOG) and more generally. If you like this and can't wait seven days for more of the same you should listen to my Bearcast every day.
Having asked for readers tips for 2019 for the amazing prize of a meal with Tom Winnifrith (or the chance to fob it off on someone you don't like) HERE, the following is an August bank holiday update on performance (to be eligible needed to have selected, on a per username basis, a buy & sell pick from the LSE or AIM Casino and the stocks not to have been suspended at the commencement of 2019)...
In this fourth edition of the ShareProphets Radio podcast sponsored by Riverfort Global Capital, this week, in order I discuss bad convertible loan/death spiral funding looking at the recent RNS from Kefi (KEFI), I interview David Bramhill of Union Jack Oil (UJO) and then bring you part one of two part interview with the greatest living and funniest fraudster Sam Antar of Crazy Eddie's infamy. Enjoy. If you like this and can't wait seven days for more of the same you should listen to my Bearcast every day.
I explain the unusual location of my studio today. The welsh hovel is amok with workmen including Brokerman Dan who has explained to me his thoughts on Union Jack Oil (UJO) as he clears away asbestos. I also look at IQE (IQE) and at Idox (IDOX) both of which SHOULD have placings and neither of which I'd bottom fish.
When Union Jack Oil (UJO) confirmed the results of the West Newton A2 drill in June, we were told consent was in place for the extended well test and this would go ahead in Q3 of this year. With all too many UK onshore drills impacted by delays due to difficulties obtaining planning consents everything sounded very positive. This week however has seen the operator make a planning application for the well test phase, which introduces timing risk.
Having previously banked gains on Union Jack Oil (UJO), we re-recommended at the end of last month at 0.19p to buy noting with the initial West Newton result excitement having calmed down and new funds raised, it looked a good opportunity to get back on-board before the potential excitement in the second half of this year and that the ‘commentators’ who ramped last time in a fairly aggressive way had not gone away & indeed participated in the placing. The shares are now 0.27p to sell on the back of a “Biscathorpe-2 Well Update”…
Caveat 1: SP Angel which produced this note is house broker to Union Jack Oil (UJO) so is biased. Caveat 2: Zac Phillips no longer works at SP Angel and the new analyst is not fit to lick Zac's boots. Caveat 3: Chris Oil owns stacks of these shares and will sell into any spike while urging others to buy like the dirty little spiv he is. Having said all iof that I can't fault the logic of this detailed note.
In this podcast I reflect on the birth of my daughter Olaf (Olivia) at just 26 weeks, weighing 1lb 4 oz all those years ago as she turns 18 today. I look at Boris Johnson's proposed stamp duty bribe and why it is wrong at every level. I answer the questions I raised yesterday, about Chris Oil's share trading in Union Jack Oil (UJO) and I discuss the "news" (it won';t be to you dear listeners!) that Neil Woodford's Equity Income Fund is being gated for a lot longer than the first announced 28 days.
I suggested that Union Jack Oil (UJO) was planning a placing in yesterday’s bearcast. And lo and behold the Sheriff of AIM is right again, £2.25 million has been raised at 0.17p. But this raises big questions about the share trading activities of Mr Chris “Uranium” Oil, a man who has featured on this website often enough.
I discuss the double standards of those running the LSE Asylum with reference to UK Oil & Gas (UKOG), its lying CEO and some poltroon who asserts I take bribes. I ask Nigel if he still thinks Sosandar (SOS) is a buy at sub 20p as it is sub 20p. I'm not sure. I look at greed and rewarding failure at Staffline (STAF), pass on rumours about Union Jack Oil (UJO) and comment on Bluejay Mining (JAY) and Dev Clever (DEV). Now it's back to hard work at the Welsh Hovel.
In today's podcast I look at Union Jack Oil (UJO), Sound Energy (SOU), Westminster Group (WSG), PCG Entertainment (PCGE), Bluejay (JAY), why Nigel Somerville is, today only, wrong about Neil Woodford, Future (FUTR) and Staffline (STAF).
As is so often the case with oil and gas drills amongst the smaller companies, private investors built expectations around West Newton up to such a level that the actual results were never likely to live up to that.
Union Jack Oil (UJO) has announced results for the 2018 calendar year and that “the company eagerly awaits the results of the current drilling of West Newton A-2 appraisal well, the result of the Planning Appeal at Wressle and the re-processing of 3D seismic in respect of Biscathorpe. These ventures are expected to provide a steady stream of newsflow throughout 2019 and success at any one of these projects has the potential to dramatically transform your company”…
A “Wressle Planning Appeal Update” announcement, with Union Jack Oil (UJO) “pleased that a date has now been set for the planning enquiry”…
Union Jack Oil (UJO) “is pleased to announce that it has conditionally agreed to sell its 7.5% interest in PEDL143 to UK Oil & Gas” (UKOG)…
Union Jack Oil (UJO) “is pleased to announce that it has conditionally raised £1.75 million by way of a placing and subscription, through the issue of a total of 2,333,333,334 new ordinary shares at an issue price of 0.075 pence”…
My big trouble in life is that I am a charitable soul and, as thirsty share bloggers know, bend over backwards to see the best in folks. Others are far less charitable. That brings me to a now deleted tweet from Chris Oil from 1.07 PM on Wednesday 20th February on Union Jack Oil (UJO). Chris may have thought that history was erased but a co-conspirator has preserved the golden prose below:
Union Jack Oil (UJO) has updated that the appeal against the refusal of planning consent for the development of the Wressle oil discovery by the North Lincolnshire Council's Planning Committee on 28th November has been submitted to the Planning Inspectorate…
Union Jack Oil (UJO) “is pleased to announce the commencement of drilling operations at Biscathorpe-2”…
Well it is all happening down at Union Jack Oil (UJO). Let’s start with fundamentals.
With a 27.5% working interest in the Wressle development, Union Jack Oil (UJO) has noted a “Wressle Recommended for Approval by Planners” announcement from operator Egdon Resources (EDR)…
We have no idea what our pal Brokerman Dan is up to. For as long as we can remember he has been beastly about Union Jack (UJO) writing things that are true, untrue and half true but all nasty. But suddenly his mate Chris Oil is buying shares and Brokerman Dan thinks the shares are cheap as chips. Whatever. What is that about sinners and repenting?
The City's No 1 oil analyst Zac Phillips has today published a note on Union Jack Oil (UJO) setting out exactly why he is so bullish. Over to the great man...
Union Jack Oil (UJO) is “pleased to announce that the company has agreed terms… on a proposed farm-in for a 16.667% licence interest in PEDL183… located onshore UK in East Yorkshire”, with this accompanied by a £2.25 million equity raise…
Union Jack Oil (UJO) has announced results for the first half of 2018, including to “expect a very active six months for Union Jack with the drilling of the economically compelling Biscathorpe-2 conventional well and the upcoming planning processes to allow the Wressle discovery to move to development”…
Yesterday North Lincs council rejected the latest permit application for the Wressle field where Union Jack (UJO) is a junior partner. This was expected as this council is a politically driven mess. The partners will now appeal to grown ups at Central Government. So while disappointing this is not unexpected and, of course, Union Jack has a number of other assets. So the minor sell off in the shares today does not change our BUY stance.
I have had a business lunch, a rare event for me down in the boonies and as such I assess my sobriety. In this podcast I discuss Union Jack (UJO) and the new business-hating climate in Britain, Optibiotix (OPTI), Countrywide (CWD), UK Oil & Gas (UKOG), RM2 (RM2) and base rates on both sides of the pond.

No this is not an airfield at all but a small oilfield seven miles from Lincoln. Union Jack Oil (UJO) is paying approximately £137,000 for a 20% stake. This figure includes a pro rata share of the Operator`s legal, licence, planning and acquisition costs. The other 80% is owned by operator Egdon Resources.
Union Jack Oil (UJO) has announced that it has bought the "entire onshore hydrocarbon portfolio interest of Nautical Petroleum Limited, a wholly owned subsidiary of Cairn Energy PLC.". That sounds more impressive than it actually is. This is a small bolt on deal.
The planning committee of North Lincolnshire County Council met on Monday to - again - discuss the Wressle application. Officials had recommended approval as it fitted in with all the authority's guidelines. All was set fair. Then came the first sign of trouble.
Union Jack Oil (UJO) has announced that the North Lincolnshire County Council's Planning Committee will meet on Monday 3rd July 2017 at 2 PM to determine the new planning application for the Wressle Development which includes additional detailed information to address the specific concerns raised by North Lincolnshire County Council in its 11 January 2017 decision to refuse the original application.
Okay it is from house broker Turner Pope so it is not to be viewed as impartial but then it does not come with a buy or sell stance, this report just gives a deatiled breakdown of the assets and operations of Union Jack Oil (UJO), whose shares -at 0.14p are - I think - cheap.
Union Jack Oil (UJO) has announced that Egdon, the operator of blocks PEDL180 and PEDL182, the Lincolnshire based Wressle prospect, has received a variation to the Mining Waste Permit. Union jack has a 15% stake in Wressle where progress in getting the field producing has been delayed by NIMBY's at the County Council.
SP Angel is houes broker to Union Jack Oil (UJO) so take its notes with a pinch of salt. Bur I rate analyst Zak "The Knife" Phillips highly and as such today's reiterated buy stance after the news from Wressle cannot be totally ignored. As for the target price! The Kinfe writes:
In this video from the storming success that was the 2017 UK Investor Show, David Lenigas of Doriemus (DOR), David Bramhill of Union Jack Oil (UJO), Jonathon Tidswell of Angus Energy (ANGS) and Gary Newman discuss UK Onshore Oil. And make sure that you keep April 21 2018 free for next year's UK Investor Show.
Union Jack Oil (UJO) has noted an “Appeal & New Planning Application” announcement on the Wressle oil field (Union Jack: 15%, including 3.33% subject to approval from the Oil and Gas Authority) from operator Egdon Resources (EDR).
Now we know the reason for the £1.4 million placing at 0.135p by Union Jack Oil (UJO) a week ago. As we predicted at the time the acquisition it was targeting was at Wressle in Lincolnshire. Today we are told that Union has spent £600,000 to buy from Celtique Energie Petroleum Limited a further 3.33% interest in PEDL180 and PEDL182. Union Jack currently holds an 11.67% interest in both licences so its stake now goes to 15%.
I start and end with Cloudtag (CTAG) - so far today no news which I take to mean it is bad news and explain why. At the end I discus who disgruntled and out of pocket punters should sue over this fraud and when. In the middle of the Cloudtag fraud sandwich I look at Andalas Energy (ADL) which really is fucked whatever it says. I reckon Justin the Clown will have to sell the cardboard box and sleep in the open air before long. I also look at Starcom (STAR), Servision (SEV) - which is a major scandal in the making - Union Jack Oil (UJO) and Milestone Group (MSG) which remains non investment grade crap as CEO Deborah White should be wearing an orange jump suit and doing a perp walk.
Union Jack Oil (UJO) and its partner on the Wressle field, Egdon, have appealed against a planning set back on the Wressle field in North Lincolnshire. In the end it will win and at 0.17p (offer) the shares are undervalued and the stance is buy with a target of c0.3p at least.
The UK's 14th onshore licensing round came to a close today with the final awards of new acreage and Union Jack (UJO) gets a win from the process. Egdon Resources has formally been awarded license PEDL 339 in the East Midlands and if Union Jack pays 20% of the cost of the first well - which it will - it gets a 10% interest.
The world still hates small oil stocks. We are not sure when that will change but given how many of the mid caps are collapsing either entirely (Afren) or surviving only via schemes that see shareholders almost wiped out ( XCite, Gulfsands, Gulf Keystone, IGAS, LGO, etc, etc) we feel we could be at a Burmah Castrol moment. Do a google search if you are too young to understand the reference!
I start with the rise and fall of foxy Katia Beauchamp and Birchbox a tech hero which is stuttering. What does that mean for the rest of us? I discuss specifically what it says about Wandisco (WAND). I look at Global Resource (GRIT) or should that be more SHIT from Sam Hutchins and then also Environmental Recycling (ENRT), a worthless fraud. The it is onto Goldenport (GPRT), MX Oil (MXO) and also Union Jack Oil (UJO). Finally back to Nyota (NYO) please email Richard.Chase@NyotaMinerals.com and tell him that a move to NED is not enough, he must go and must go now for good. And I dont think he really is an NED anyway for what it is worth - something I explain in the bearcast.
I have always thought that the London Capital Club in the City was jam packed with prize arseholes so that is another reason why I am turning down free booze tonight .FFS it is the new series of Grantchester on the box and the Mrs and I would not miss that for the world, But if you fancy free booze with a 5 PM kick off...
I am NOT going to London on 2nd March. My resolution to stay away from the ghastly Capital is intact but if you are there next week and fancy free booze from 5 PM on the Wednesday...
The weekend press is full of stories of doom and gloom and dividend cuts for BP (BP.) and Shell and clearly there are a stack of smaller companies that are totally screwed and where shareholders are likely to face total wipeout. In that vein I discuss Magnolia (MAGP), Igas (IGAS), Gulf Keystone (GKP), XCite (XEL) and, of course, LGO Energy (TOAST). But is there a case for buying oil shares as a long term invester. I look at a few cases from BP down to Union Jack Oil (UJO). Perhaps there is no rush but the time will come.

SP Angel acts as an adviser to AIM listed Union Jack Oil (UJO) so take this with the proverbial pinch of salt. However the share price target seems so bullish that it might be worth reading this detailed note out today.
Really? 223% upside? Amazingly SP Angel does not appear to be house broker to AIM listed Union Jack Oil (UJO) so maybe this note by Zac Phillips is of interest and might almost be seen as independent. He seems to like the shares.

David Bramhill, entrepreneurial executive chairman of Union Jack Oil (UJO), has been sounding characteristically bullish about tests at the Wressle 1 oil and gas discovery in North Lincolnshire, where the AIM -quoted company holds an 8.33% stake. Fellow AIM counter Egdon Resources (EDR), with a 25% interest, has estimated a potential resource of more than two million barrels at Wressle, in the Crosby Warren field, and recently indicated three separate reservoirs had shown oil and gas, with an oil column below the gas zone, and extended tests are now under way.

The markets are all about momentum and expectation a lot of the time, and that is especially the case with companies listed on AIM. One company that is currently seeing a fair bit of both of these share price drivers is Union Jack Oil (UJO), but I strongly suspect that it will end up vastly over-valued, even if there is further positive news on the current drill that it is involved in.
After reading Union Jack Oil’s (UJO) interim results released today it really did cement the company in my mind as being well placed to take full advantage of the buzz around onshore UK. It’s little wonder people are looking for the safe haven of Europe as West Africa with Ebola, The old Eastern Bloc '' nuff said '' and the Middle East has the dawn bombing raids to look forward to.
Broker SP Angel has published a detailed research report on AIM listed Union Jack Oil (UJO) claiming that shares in the AIM listed UK onshore oil play should be valued at 0.7p rather than the current 0.27p.
