Last week, I exposed how Standard Listed company, Genflow (GENF), was created by a convicted pump-and-dump fraudster, currently facing an 85-year prison sentence. He and his “known associate”, Mr Adrian Beeston, supposedly own 20% of the equity, for which they paid peanuts. That alone should trigger an FCA enquiry, but it gets worse.
THIS article yesterday exposed the activities of Mr. Ron Bauer and his known associate Mr. Adrian Beeston. Now let us see the hook up with my old pal, the Sith Lord Zak Mir and what appars to be a horrific quid pro quo. Or maybe it is just a coincidence...
This is a major scandal - one that will create massive embarrassment for those operating in the depths of the AIM, Aquis and Standard List sewers. And for Matt Lofgran of Nostra Terra (NTOG), his buddy, Gavin Burnell of the Globo (GBO) fraud, and Novum infamy, it poses a major question of what they knew and when.
Yesterday at 7.40 AM, an RNS appeared saying that trading in shares in Eurasia Mining (EUA) had been “temporarily suspended pending an announcement.” 24 hours later we still have no news. Good news travels fast, etc, etc. I considered possible reasons for the suspension HERE but, there is another possibility.
Lift Global Ventures (LFT) - a cash shell that buys assets in the financial media world - was listed at 3p on 29 April, after a fund raise which brought in £1.73 million. That, we are told, was “oversubscribed”, which is obviously a testimony to the brilliance of its CEO, the Sith Lord Zak Mir. Every bandit in town is on the shareholder list, as well as upstanding blue-chip investors like David Lenigas and ex ADVFN boss, Clem “a legend in his own expenses lunchtime” Chambers.
Excuse me if I crow, but all the threats, harassment and smears I have received from those paid to attack me, as well as from dumb investors, enraged that I had dared to expose this crock since 3 February 2021, must now be viewed in light of a bailout placing, announced yesterday, at just 2p.
Some ShareProphets articles are marmite, in that it's good for you but not very popular. Other ShareProphets artiicles are, well, marnite, in that they cause widespread, viceral disagreement. Here are the twenty stories that ShareProphets readers read and read with Julie Meyer featuring in four of them. Ms Lingerie on Expenses sure is box office.
This morning’s RNS from Eurasia Mining (EUA) smacks of desperation. It’s missing any update on the only topic that shareholders are interested in: the sale; or the “liquidity event” as Eurasia referred to it in its 14th of February RNS. We’ve repeatedly highlighted issues with the supposed sale here on ShareProphets, but it should now be crystal clear that the political risk in Russia is off the chart, meaning that no non-Russian company is ever going to buy a mining asset in Russia! And any Russian company will simply do what Putin tells them to do.
I am asked this question by a long suffering reader in relation to Skinbiotherapeutics (SBTX) and do my best to answer. I look at IQE (IQE),the curious share dealing of Mr Drew Nelson and whether I’d be tempted. I still see no sign of the IPO of Zak Mir’s crazy media investment company which he said was imminent two weeks ago. Is it Lift off? I comment on Bluebird Merchant Ventures (BMV) and then have a detailed look at Sarah Willingham’s Nightcap (NGHT) in light of today’s expose. It really is a one way bet. Down.
The Sith Lord Zak Mir always tells me that all publicity for him is good publicity. That is why, as I, alone, report his utterly atrocious stock picking, inability to understand even the basic grammar he was taught at Harrow or his strange business ventures. He should be so incredibly grateful to me. I am almost the only chronicler of the Fall and Rise of Reggie Mir. And that brings us to Lift Ventures. Is it Lift Off or Lift on?
As I write, four of the top 12 fallers are stocks that I have exposed as total wronguns and one of the four even coughed up that I had gpt a scoop on Friday. In today’s podcast, which should please Matthew and his dog, I cover: Omega Diagnostics (ODX) and its porkies, MGC Pharmaceuticals (MXC), a Turner Pope dog still valued at £40 million even now but not worth a fraction of that, Guild ESports (GILD) & the greed of David Beckham, Vast Resources (VAST) and the fraud Chill Brands (CHLL ) which could be going down the plughole for good within a couple of weeks. I forgot to discuss the latest news from Zak Mir and Lift Ventures. That will have to wait for another day.
I start with the dire customer service from Scottish Power which is scamming me here at the Welsh Hovel. What to do? Then I am disppointed that none of you could Sherlock ADM Energy (ADME) and its latest fake sheikh. Then, sorry Gary, back to Advance Energy (ADV) and its history with this fine website as Andalas and as CEB Resources, the pumpers (Zak Mir, flip flop Ben Turney, and Justin the Clown), the villains (Dave Whitby) and the lessons. Finally I explain why those predicting financial armageddon are, all of a sudden so plausible, but are wrong, or at least are over-egging the pudding.
I start by considering events in the Ukraine where my sympathies are, naturally, with Mother Russia but what could it all lead to? Then I consider why shares in Zak Mir’s Lift Ventures might fly but why his plan is flawed. Then onto THG (THG), Deepverge (DVRG) and Union Jack (UJO) and CEOs who say the shares are too cheap too often or who “fear” a takeover at this price.
This is from the private Telegram group where Zak Mir committed market abuse citing the Good German excuse. This is how shareholders in this company get their rocks off…Whatever… A shareholder list this dumb is a sure fire sell signal.
You may remember that, on November 23, the Sith Lord Zak Mir put out an RNS to say that he had teamed up with the scumbag spivs at Novum Securities to announce that the media company he had created, Lift Ventures, was to raise £1.7 million at 3p and to list on the Aquis lobster pot. I explained what a top of the market rum ‘n’coke this was at the time HERE. Anyhow…
Let nobody suggest that David Lenigas is a shameless penny share huckster who makes Zak Mir look like a man of impeccable integrity. The great analyst (Lenigas not Mir) has highlighted a stock I own as one of his top 5 ramps, ooops I meant, conservatively analysed value investments, for 2022 but suggests you do your own research before filling your boots. Well since you mention it Dave, I might as well flag up the shite you are talking about one of the five.
Tom’s almost-daily podcast remains the cornerstone of ShareProphets, always racking up in the top of the most popular items on the site. From the Welsh to Greek hovels, to the salty language, to the copious amonts of Ouzo and ultimately trenchant analysis of stocks, here are the 25 Bearcasts that ShareProphets members had on their podcast players.
I kid you not. Natch there is a very obviously related party stink, the valuation is a joke, the brokers behind it are scumbags and my friend Zak is a clown who doesn’t have a scooby about media and fintech M&A but do not let me put you off. This madness will at least be entertaining, if not rewarding for those daft enough to back it.
This is the second dreadful trading update from Supply@ME Capital (SYME) in the space of six weeks. It demonstrates that the company will soon run out of cash and has hoodwinked mug punters to allow industrial scale director share sales and dumping by death spiral providers. If the FCA does not act on this latest clear evidence of outright fraud, it really is admitting that it is not fit for purpose. Anyone still holding the shares is insane and here is why.
The results for the year to March 31 2021 came out on August 31 but the audited annual report is not out until today, the day of Chill Brands (CHLL) AGM so a second AGM will be needed to approve this sad document. I can see why Chill does not want folks reading the report for it contains multiple horrors all of which indicate that the shares are going to crater. My target price remains 0p-5p but, after today, 0p looks far more likely.
Two or three weeks ago I clambered off the fence and explicitly told you to short Eurasia Mining (EUA) at 28p. The shares are now 23.6p in the middle. So far so good for we bears but the company is still valued by the market, on a fully diluted basis as there are loads of in the money options, at well over £700 million which is insane. A placing announced yesterday is the cue to add to your shorts.
David Lenigas is to ramptastic tweeting what Colin Bird is to pre placing pumps. He just cannot help himself. Today’s special is a picture of two men in late middle age standing in a tax haven shaking hands. Apparently this is very significant for Aquis lobster pot listed Valereum (VLRM), the crypto play pumped to 80p three months ago as the shameless chartist turned penny share stock promoter Zak Mir called it up to £2, That helped it get away a £1 million placing at 70p. Its shares now trade at 29p but even that is still a staggering 20 times net assets for this loss making business. Maybe three men could shake hands tomorrow in some tax dodging location and that would be even more significant, eh Dave?
Both Tom Winnifrith and I have commented on the corporate goings on at Powerhouse Energy (PHE) often and over a long time. We can and should comment on all the questionable activities to inform investors. Pierolunaire commented earlier this week how it is not always possible to drill into the techy detail of all companies. I agree with that, but if you work in this area, rather than being a professional spouter of pomposity, then it is possible.
Powerhouse Energy (PHE) today issued a release to clarify media speculation about a possible tie up with Hydrogen Utopia (HUI) and Linde. Really. Maybe that was prompted by HUI issuing its own release yesterday HERE. So much for everybody playing by LSE listing rules.
This really is Alice in Wonderland stuff. Sitting on the big mushroom is Dominic White, the ex-chairman of the Supply@ME Capital (SYME) fraud but also boss of Aquis listed Eight Capital Partners (ECP) whose last stated net assets were just £40,000. Now Supply promoter Zak Mir hands over the hookah to the dormouse. Please try to keep up.
The FCA needs urgently to take a look at the paid for research market. It seems anybody can enter and then can charge a fat fee for publishing whatever ramptastic shite they like. On Tuesday I cited the utter fiction produced by Proactive Investors on the Supply@ME Capital (SYME) fraud. Today I bring you one reason Eurasia Mining (EUA) shares roofed it yesterday, a report from ACF Equity Research, a company that cant publish its own accounts so why on earth should it be able to analyse those of anyone else?
I am back in Wales as of the wee hours and reflect on that. Today has been plum harvesting day. In the podcast, I look at Jubilee Metals (JLP) where I am out but should I dive back in and Ariana Resources (AAU) where I am in but should I dive out? Then the two dogs both beloved of the Sith Lord Zak Mir: Argo Blockchain (ARB) and Remote Monitored Systems (RMS).
I am no longer anything to do with UK Investor so gain nothing from bringing this offer to you. There is what is termed a UK Investor Summit taking place on Saturday 2 October at the Saracens stadium in North London. I am such an anti social bar stool that I would rather eat my own toes than pitch up but you may have missed chatting to other investors face to face during lockdown. And there is one really big reason to go.
I refer to the resort of Stoupa. My wife knows how much I loathe and despise it and why and yet I found myself there again today. It was, as anticipated, hell on earth. Forget subbing Zak Mir’s copy for eternity this is the real deal. On a lighter note I examine timelines of placings, director share dumps, profits warnings and ramptastic statements at Best of the Best (BOTB) and Braveheart Investment Group (BRH). In a world where anyone cared any more there would be a full steward’s on both. Of course nobody gives a damn and the world moves on. Nothing to see here sir.
I end with another appeal for brave Ian Westbrook. We are now just over £7,000 from making Neill Ricketts of Versarien (VRS) sweat like the loathsome pig he is. Please do donate HERE. I start with a comment on Kefi (KEFI) from the horse’s mouth, and a look at the fraud Zoetic (ZOE), Deepverge (DVRG), Moonpig (MOON), Uru Metals (URU) and the Zak Mir top of the market call.
If this is not a sign to sell all your shares I do not know what is. The list of rogues with zero experience of managing money but who are veterans of ramping penny share frauds and promotes who are involved here is such a massive red flag. Lift Ventures was set up with £50,000 from the paid for penny stock ramping site LSE Share Talk on 13 May. The lead director who, it appears, will be managing its investments is Zak Mir who has never managed other folks money in his life bar the generous handouts he got from his parents as pocket money when at Harrow.
During the early months of this year Zak Mir was the hero of numerous bulletin boards but notably those for Supply@ME capital (SYME) and remote Monitored Systems (RMS) for his almost non stop buy calls and ludicrous price targets. By contrast in calling out Supply as a fraud and Remote as an overvalued POS, I was the villain of the tale. With shares in both companies heading south at a rate of knots I invite you to consider the cartoon below and offer up suitable captions in honour of my good pal the Sith Lord. Post away in the comments section below. Do your worst.
When a director of a listed company is interviewed by a fine fellow such as my old friend the Sith Lord Zak Mir or Justin “the clown” Waite there are restrictions on what he can or cannot say. Of course some directors ignore the rules and the Oxymorons at AIM Regulation do nothing. But there will be at least a note of caution in making ludicrous claims. But in recent times, there has been more evidence of a get-around.
On 8 March 2021, a couple of weeks after directors dumped millions of pounds worth of shares at 243p, Argo Blockchain (ARB) raised £26.8 million at 200p. So where has all the money gone?
Valereum Blockchain (VLRM), The Richard Poulden blockchain/NFT/bitcoin ramp hyped disgracefully by shareholder David Lenigas and penny share paid for promoter Zak “the huckster” Mir, has managed to raise £1 million at a shocking 70p. And the shares are now 76p. This is insanity.
The current fashion for retail investors to back any old company that claims to be active in the UK intermittent generation market continues. Dukemount Capital (DKE) has been brought to my attention as one of the latest to attempt to tap into the retail enthusiasm for anything power and green related. Unfortunately this one does not pass my test as a worthwhile investment on so many levels.
Now that Remote Monitored Systems (RMS) has finally confessed that its much hyped face nappy business is a worthless piece of crap unable to deliver any of the sales contracts alluded to as directors pumped the shares so they could dump their holdings, you may ask what is the company actually worth? The answer will shock those conned into buying the shares by the silky words of Zak Mir and others.
The number of lies told by this company is so great that I have almost lost count. But then Remote Monitored Systems (RMS) is listed on the AIM Sewer where rule 67 states “Any company can lie to investors via RNS or in podcasts with Justin the Clown or that imbecile Zak Mir and the Oxymorons at AIM Regulation will do absolutely nothing about it.” Okay I made that bit up. And so, with no great hope of it doing anything about quite blatant RNS lying, I have written to AIM Regulation about Remote Monitored Systems and its Nomad and broker SP Angel asking for an investigation into a new £1.5 million lie that emerged yesterday. The letter is below:
One of these three gents is a good friend (or was, maybe he won’t be after reading this), one is godfather to my daughter and one is a fat and utterly shameless Aussie share promoter who used to think there was more oil in the Weald Basin than in Saudi Arabia and whose latest tweet is below.
At peak ramp, folks like Zak Mir were telling you that Remote Monitored Systems (RMS) would be drowning in cash from selling gazillions of its high margin face nappies. I warned repeatedly that this was pure fantasy. Today the grim truth has emerged and the shares have slumped. Worse will follow.
Valereum Blockchain (VLRM) is an Aquis listed illiquid company with a start up business with sod all revenues and sod all cash. But ramped by hucksters like Lenigas and Zak Mir it is now, at 33p capitalised at £21.5 million. Now it seems, according to Lenigas, that IG Index will pour petrol on the fire allowing folks to buy on margin. What could possibly go wrong?
This looks like a Hail Mary pass from an investor that has spunked £25 million on three separate occasions and is now looking like a prize Charlie. It may win the battle but Crystal Amber will, like other mug punters, still lose all or nearly all of its cash at Hurricane Energy (HUR).
Sleazy ex Tory MP Tim Yeo has another spoof announcement at Powerhouse Energy (PHE) but we are in the late stages of a bull market so, while Yeo is clearly taking the (Greek & Hungarian ) piss, moronic mug punters have lapped it up.
Shame on all those such as Zak Mir who have promoted this bag of excrement for today’s trading update was a true horror both in terms of what it said but also what it did not say. Starting with the latter: this is a trading update which admits that sales are SFA but made no mention of losses or the cash position. Why not? I put it to you that if the company was drowning in cash it would shout about it. That it does not mention it at all screams out the possibility that another bailout placing is on the way. Then there is what is said which is almost as bad.
As ever, I urge the 95% of bearcast listeners yet to donate to give today to Rogue Bloggers for Woodlarks. Now I must warn you that Matthew and his dog may not approve of this podcast, nor will the FCA as - in light of today’s expose - I discuss its role in enabling the Supply@ME Capital (SYME) fraud. I discuss the failings of the standard list and also why the end of lockdown will see more businesses go bust and I explain why the fine details of revenue recognition are not – as folks like Zak Mir seem to think – accounting porn for Geeks but really do matter.
On 8th January 2021, the fraud Zoetic International (ZOE) announced that its shares had started trading on the US OTC market, OTCQX and the shares jumped by 10% on the news. For the big lie being pushed by shameless promoters of frauds and other penny dreadfuls listed in the UK is that such a listing will put a rocket under the shares.
The fraud Zoetic International (ZOE) has released a trading update. Natch, there are lorry loads of jam tomorrow but it is what it does not say that should give investors looking at a £157 million market cap ( at 80p) a real panic attack. The lack of critical data here is the monumental red flag.
Valereum (VLRM) in the Aquis lobster pot has, as of today, zero revenues and – if it is lucky – £300,000 net cash. But mention the magig bitcoin word, throw in a few tokens and some magic beans and, hey presto, promoter David Lenigas and the Sith Lord Zak Mir reckon the shares should hit 60p. That would be a valuation of £38 million. Whatever you say Gents…today’s ramptastic love triangle from twitter is below.
Bulls of Remote Monitored Systems (RMS) or paid penny share hustlers, such as LSE Share Talk, are forced to make extraordinary projections about sales of Pharm2Farm face nappies in order to justify urging folks to chuck their cash down the pan by buying these shares. For the current valuation is bonkers. Just see for yourself and ask a few questions.
The most read non-Tom article this week is Gold Shares – It’s been a tough few months, but I sense we are near the bottom by Nigel Somerville at number four, or number nine including Bearcasts and Tom’s new shareshow. Which one is the best of the week? Tell me in the comments.
All chartists, not just Zak Mir, talk total cobblers and so here are two of them on the subject of gold, silver, and copper. Kevin Wadsworth and Patrick Karim talk cobblers. I’d love them to be right but I bet they are not. Enjoy.
We may previously have given the impression that old Harrovian Zak Mir was born with a silver spoon in his mouth and was a bit of an intellectual lightweight if not an outright poltroon who could not analyse his way out of a paper bag and was also semi-literate. Moreover, we may have suggested that his analysis of certain frauds such as Supply@ME Capital (SYME) and obscenely overvalued promotes such as Remote Monitored Systems (RMS) might in some way be coloured by the fact that a company he works for, LSE ShareTalk, generates revenue from promoting such rubbish. If so, now is the time to apologise to Mr Mir, aka the Sith Lord.
Last night, Argo Blockchain (ARB) announced a bookbuild and Primary Bid offer to raise £26.8 million at 200p. It was hugely oversubscribed. This sector is hot and both retail and institutional investors could not get enough. Good luck to them all.
I start with a reference to the covid testing stocks and the £8 billion Government tender I revealed earlier HERE. Then it is onto how companies are circumventing rules about ramping their shares with lies by getting shareholders to do the pumps via folks like Justin the Clown and Zak Mir. The FCA, AIM Regulation and corporate advisors need to stop washing their hands onto a range of abuses by shareholders and deal with it.
Shares in Supply@ME Capital (SYME) have now been “temporarily” suspended – after I explained to the FCA why a suspension was needed – since January 21. I wonder how the Sith Lord Zak Mir, such a keen promoter of this fraud, interprets the 1 month share price chart?
The most read non-Tom article this week is Update on my share tips of the year 2021 by Steve Moore at number three, or number 10 including Bearcasts and Tom’s new shareshow. Which one is the best of the week? Tell me in the comments.
Some folks have all the luck.
Yesterday I discussed the shocking share ramp by David Lenigas, Zak Mir, Peterhouse Corporate Finance of Richard Poulden’s Upper Thames Holdings (UPPT), a business with £300,000 of cash, zero operations, which is capitalised at £6.4 million and still the ramp goes on. Part of that ramp is the hire as a non board advisor of Vinay Gupta, a blockchain guru. Sadly, Mr Poulden your new hire is bonkers. Here is how he explains how we can all become millionaires overnight.
I warned folks on 22 January that cash shell Ridgecrest (RDGC) was, at 3.1p, a £13.5 million accident waiting to happen. With folks such as the penny share hucksters at LSE Share talk, employers of disgraced promoter Zak Mir, in full on spiv mode, folks were piling in even though the company had cash of just £2 million and no other assets. It was insane. Still, if Zak says the shares are a buy…
We live in times of sheer insanity. It is a rampers’ paradise and cometh the day cometh the four horsemen of the rampfest apocalypse. I bring you a tale of sheer insanity from the Aquis lobster pot market, formerly the NEX Exchange. It starts with what was once PGC Entertainment (PGCE), a serial uber dog which was eventually slung off the AIM casino. I should say that its boss is my pal Richard Poulden.
The fraud Supply@ME Capital (SYME) has repeatedly declined the opportunity to say what its cash position is right now when issuing updates on trading, today being the latest case in point. The reason, as I shall show below, is that it is bankrupt, utterly out of cash. And that may be one, of many reasons, why the FCA does not allow its shares to resume trading. So here is the maths which is so easy that some of the morons who own this stock, perhaps even promoter in chief Zak Mir, might understand it.
We know that the fraud Supply@ME Capital (SYME) is not great on accounting matters, given the three attempts to account for the £224 million deemed cost of the reverse takeover which has now been accounted for as an asset in the balance sheet, then written off to the income statement and now charged to the statement of changes in equity as I outlined on these pages and also the two changes of year end which led to its suspension. I note that it is still in the process of appointing a Chief Financial Officer. A Chief Financial Officer is clearly needed when you look back across the results published by Supply and the apparent inconsistencies as detailed below. Yes here are more red flags for Zak Mir and other morons to ignore.
Shares in the fraud Supply@ME Capital (SYME) have now remained suspended for 16 days as the FCA investigation into numerous irregularities continues. As we wait for the final denouement, a question for folks like the Sith Lord Zak Mir who are so keen to promote the stock: let’s turn to page 47 of the prospectus.
Though he does not declare so in the tweet below, he has elsewhere: penny share huckster and known associate of Zak Mir, Mr Alex McKinley is a shareholder in joke company Remote Monitored Systems (RMS). You know, the maker of masks to stop covid spread that are so good its site turned into a covid hot spot. Yes, that fine enterprise.
I start by flagging up that I aim to publish an 85 page dossier, m an opus magnus, on the sort of company Zak Mir promotes at 8.30 AM tomorrow behind the paywall. I see it as a zero. Then I discuss why Zak is, contrary to some suggestions here otherwise, a total and utter genius who did not kill Maddie and then look at his analysis of Jubilee Metals (JLP). I move on to why I’ve bought more shares in AEX Gold (AEXG) before looking at the nest of snakes at Dev Clever (DEV), its bonkers valuation and why it must collapse. I reference this excellent expose of that nest of snakes. I look at investor grief and what is happening at Supply@ME Capital (SYME) and what will happen – and when – at Dev.
Of course you do not have to listen to me or, in this case to an industry veteran. Why not just listen to Zak Mir, Alex McKinley and the other “experts” and fill your boots with this con when its shares resume trading. On that note, Looker published its delayed accounts today and its shares were unsuspended at 9.35 AM. I wonder why the FCA is not unsuspending Supply@ME Capital’s (SYME) shares yet? Anhow back to the expert auditor who notes:
I was never in doubt that Crowe UK, the auditors disgraced as the firm that signed off on the books of a vast number of the AIM China frauds, would sign off on the accounts for Supply@ME Capital (SYME) for the 9 months to December 31 2019. After all it was just a cash shell back then, awaiting the Supply RTO. But even so what this document tells us should scare, at least some, of this company’s moronic shareholders.
You would have thought that after the last scandal we exposed, where Zak Mir acted as a good German and posted on the private Telegram chatroom false ramps on the orders of a Eurasia Mining (EUA) director, the company would be a bit more careful about how it discloses information. Think again. Today the shares crashed by 40% as it was announced that M&A director Alexei Chukov dumped 27.4 million shares at 29p. On the “private and secret” Telegram chatroom punters panicked as we showed you HERE.
I warned you on Friday that with the scoundrel penny share spivs at LSE Sharetalk, the house of Zak Mir, ramping away, the 3p share price of AIM shell Ridgecrest (RDGC) was insane and that even broker Peterhouse which has only last Wednesday raised £2 million (gross) at 0.6p would be vaguely embarrassed. Indeed, that seems to be the case as now the company has been forced to issue a statement.
I start with the question of who should pay for lockdown via taxes or inflation. Then it is onto an article by Harriet Dennys in the Mail on Sunday on NightCap (NGHT), the AIM baby of Sarah Willingham of Dragon’s Den which could go bust by July. The article is so bad, so full of massive factual errors and so utterly misleading that it is easily the worst piece of financial journalism I’ve seen so far this year. And that includes articles by Zak Mir. Seriously, writing this sort of bollocks does have consequences.
I guess with shares in Supply@ME Capital (SYME) now suspended, the paid for penny share ramper Alex McKinley of LSE Sharetalk, employer of the Sith Lord Zak Mir, needs to find other shite to promote with ludicrous targets plucked from thin air. I flagged up one zero sales entity enjoying full on ABM pumping here, now have a butcher’s at Ridgecrest (RDGC) which this loathsome sewer dweller is pumping today.
Since both sides in this particular tussle speak only to folks of a similar bent, both will take enough from a statement that says nothing concrete to allow them to scream for joy inside their respective echo chambers. Both camps will be emboldened in their GroupThink. But should they? Here are a few hard numbers to consider…
With London’s worst Nomad, Roland “Fatty” Cornish, advising it, we have time and again warned you that VAST Resources (VAST) is the sort of dog that even paid for hustlers like Zak Mir wouldn’t tip. Okay he probably would but you get the picture. Today we have a major disaster and the shares have crashed.
‘Twas the night before Christmas and Neill Ricketts levered his corpulent self into a grand four poster bed in his newly built fake Tudor come fake Georgian Gloucestershire mansion. Bloody Hell, he thought to himself, the boy who left school at 16 with one GCSE in woodwork (grade D) has done good. He stared at the wall at a large picture of his idol. And Elon stared back.
This morning, with shares in Powerhouse Energy (PHE) having surged past 8p yesterday the company was forced by AIM to issue a statement:
But the Bulletin Board Morons who have fallen in love with this con are delighted so that is the main thing – it will allow the insiders to dump more shares while getting the Sith Lord Zak Mir to tell everyone they are buying!
The advisor to Remote’s largest shareholder Gareth Cave, who wants to kick the chancers off the board, said on Twitter: “I started in the City almost 35 years ago. I have never seen anything like the shareholder revolt brewing at #RMS”. It does look as if Paul Ryan and Trevor Brown will be getting the order of the boot. Cripes, things are so bad that even fellow spiv and a long time promoter of this stock, the Sith Lord Zak Mir, has turned on the board. That is not a rat jumping ship. That is a flea on a rat jumping off the rat after it has jumped ship.
Round at Supply@ME Capital (SYME) HQ it really is starting to look like the May Day parade in Moscow. So here is another matter for promoters such as the Sith Lord Zak Mir and the dwindling band of bulletin board fanatics to consider.
Well actually there is no trading – as in generating real as opposed to accounting sales – to report on. Supply@ME Capital (SYME) again offers an update with not one single inventory monetization transaction processed. That is one mystery, the transaction cannot be heard barking at all. And there is another dog that could not be heard barking:
And now from Wales, by just 30 yards, it is my new weekly video show. This costs 99p per episode, and you can either listen to, or watch, some sparky interviews with Chris Gilbert the boss of Fox Marble followed by me explaining why, though I am 80% down, I am sure Fox will multibag from here. Then a very long – and very funny – session with Zak Mir with his top share tip among London small caps, his view on the markets, the real economy and discussions on Supply@ME Capital (SYME), Eurasia Mining (EUA) & the lies of both, on Big Dish (DISH) and more. Finally it is me onSupply’s lies again and also on why Trainline (TRN) miust surely see a share price collapse. You can access the show HERE
I see that Supply@MECapital’s (SYME) multi-shamed boss, Alessandro Zamboni, has done yet another soft interview with the Sith Lord Zak Mir. Repeated interviews with a man who makes Justin the Clown look like Jeremy Paxman are a strong red flag. You can’t deliver operationally so try to get the ramping away with a man who won’t ask awkward questions. So I asked a bear, who is short, when the shares will stop dribbling lower as they do most days and completely collapse. He said:
The video is slick and features the Sith Lord Zak Mir blowing off UK Oil & Gas (UKOG) boss Lyin’ Steve Sanderson in a soft paid for interview. What investors might note is that the 2016 claims made by Lyin’ Steve have been shown to be utter fantasy. Meanwhile the protestors continue their fight and the way that UK Oil & Gas has tried to bully them with legal threats is no credit to capitalism. Enjoy.
The out and out con that is Supply@ME Capital (SYME) has today issued another statement of delay in rolling out its nonsensical business plan. Perhaps it will buy time for the founding shareholders to dump more shares while getting the Sith Lord Zak Mir and other promoters to pretend that they are net buyers.
“BigDish Plc (LON: DISH), a technology and software solutions company currently specialising in the food technology space, is pleased to announce a Strategy and Operational Update”. But this latest spin from its “Digital Communications Officer”, a certain Zak Mir, presently sees the shares at 1.4p, 12.5% lower…
I am in Shipston with my father and start by discussing how I deal with phone calls here. I look at another crazy Covid story and then at Versarien (VRS), Amigo (AMGO), Vela (VELA), Falanx (FLX), Cineworld (CINE) and at a clever arb for fools like Zak Mir who believe in Supply@ME Capital (SYME), that leading enterprise from the province of Norfolk.
If Supply@MECapital (SYME) was about to announce price sensitive information as it repeatedly claims, how come its directors are share dealing like dervishes? There is another one at it today – chairman Dominic White dumping stock with an excuse lamer than a three-legged cat and, meanwhile, the market abusing CEO Alessandro Zamboni has been forced, by my article, to clarify his dodgy dealings of yesterday. His clarification begs more questions.
Another day and another massive red flag is hoisted by con Supply@ME Capital (SYME). Surely even the Sith Lord Zak Mir will not be able to promote this as good news while keeping a straight face?
Meet Krazykat, @GBarlowinvestor, he is a moron.
When I, again, exposed the con Supply@ME Capital (SYME) the other day, its boss Alessandro Zamboni told one of his moronic shareholders that his lawyers had advised him not to sue me for libel as I was only seeking readers and, anyway, full year numbers would speak for themselves. But with the shares sliding and the company almost out of cash, today we have a trading statement which whiffs of panic and is pure bull. It also begs the question of insider dealing.
The company with no revenues, cash or serviced clients, an RTO prospectus which must rank as the most dishonest in history, which tells demonstrable lies, where the CEO dumped shares while pretending he was not, and where the sole London regulated advisor, its broker, has quit, has served up a statement of stonking disingenuity today. I refer, of course, to Supply@ME Capital (SYME).
Sorry to the in-house Euro loon Jonathan Price who reckons that my interest in the US election is excessive but two new polls yesterday cast further light on the races in Pennsylvania and Florida which
as I noted yesterday are two of the three states that will decide the election. I discuss this and then Justin Urquhart Stewart on gold where he gets his numbers so wrong that I am more bullish than I was as I think this tells you something of wider import. Finally onto my good mate the Sith Lord Zak Mir, a chap called Carl Linton who is a plumber and heating engineer, and the current mood of market craziness.
The spoof continues. Shares in Supply@ME Capital (SYME) a company drowning in more red flags than one sees on a May Day parade in the land of the free, that is Russia comrades, now trade at 0.74p after today’s spoof release valuing this crock at £242 million. Now to explain why today’s news is a 100% spoof and the claims made by the company are pure fiction…
Aided and abetted by Good Germans such as the Sith Lord Zak Mir as well as active stock manipulation by unscrupulous social media operators, the ramping of con company Supply@ME Capital (SYME) continues. But at the heart of this are the activities of CEO Alessandro Zambini whose activities I exposed at the weekend. This is clear market abuse and I have written to my great fans at the FCA asking for a formal enquiry.
The other day, the Sith Lord Zak Mir produced a slavish piece of PR puffery dressed up as journalism suggesting folks buy shares in Supply@MECapital (SYME) at c0.7p – a £250 million valuation. It was vomit inducing and, even by the standards of my semi-literate and utterly innumerate friend, it was utterly moronic.
I speak as a shareholder and a supporter but this is quite literally insane. The company has appointed Alistair Ford, who works for paid for stock promoters Proactive, as a director. And this is where it gets bizarre. Ford has given an interview to the Sith Lord Zak Mir,
I just can’t help but notice that shares in AIM-listed jam-tomorrow serial non-deliverer Tern plc (TERN) seem to be sinking fast. The latest move yesterday, with the shares closing down again at 7.9p, has taken out the issue price of the subscription shares announced last Monday of 8.5p – which was already a 21% discount. It is always a very bad sign if the share price drops below the placing or subscription price. Oh dear…….and it gets worse, for it is under the curse of the Sith Lord Zak Mir who gave it the kiss of death at 10p, predicting a rise to 18p. Oops – 21% down so far on that one!
Well blow me down! AIM-listed jam-tomorrow POS Tern plc (TERN) has announced yet another fundraise, this time to raise £1.5 million at 8.5p. Given that the announcement came at 9am and the price just beforehand was 10.75p, that’s a 21% discount. Ouch.
I have spent most of the day recording videos for MineProphets and should warn you that Zak Mir has served up a double kiss of death. Anyway the content is - forgive my conceit - excellent so please book your seat now HERE. In the podcast I discuss scumbags at Blue Rock Diamonds (BRD), Great Western Mining (GWMO) and its scumbag broker Novum, Kefi Minerals (KEFI) where I was wrong about something and Big Sofa (BST).
I commented back on June 20th on Zak Mir’s squiggles in the sand when he gave AIM-listed jam-tomorrow investment company Tern (TERN) the kiss of death, suggesting it could make it up to 18p per share. This, of course, was based on his charting analysis and not fundamentals. So how has he done?
It was Harrow that gave Sir Winston Churchill his great powers of oratory. It was Harrow that made Lord Byron such a wonderful poet. And it is the same establishment that has allowed the Sith Lord Zak Mir to polish up the complete turd that is today’s statement from Big Dish (DISH) into something almost respectable. Given that Zak is almost completely illiterate I applaud him.
A reminder, July 18 keep it free. I first discuss the latest ideas of Rishi Sunak to revive the real economy and point out the problems and contradictions. Then I consider Zak Mir's cunning plan to make a killing on the stockmarket and a variant of the Sith Lord's wheeze suggested to me by a private client stockbroker. Will it end in tears?
Squiggles-in-the-sand specialist and all round Good German, the Sith Lord Zak Mir, noted yesterday that his bullish comments on POSs on the AIM Casino tend to trigger bear articles on this fine website in his lead-up to comments on AIM-listed Tern plc (TERN). Well I don’t want to disappoint him….after all, as you all know, I’m all heart.
AIM-listed Catenae (CTEA) shares are up this morning in reaction to the latest update on its Covid-bandwagon ramp. This, of course, was a technically insolvent outfit before some clever clogs at Catenae Towers realised that the mug punters would pile into anything to do with Covid-19 and thus a project involving a consortium in which two companies which apparently had been working together for 25 years despite one of them only coming into existence 13 years ago was born. Catenae’s shares roofed it and now two placings later (at a whopping discount) sees Catenae funded perhaps to the end of the year. This morning there was an update on the consortium Covid-19 bandwagon project……
At every step the last few days have seen Powerhouse Energy (PHE) show everything that is wrong with life among the dregs of the AIM Casino. Today a new chapter but as a reminder....
I noted that in terms of the Eurasia Mining (EUA) scandal, my old friend, the Sith Lord Zak Mir played his part in the promote only becuase he was obeying orders. Now I see that he is pushing shares in almost insolvent Powerhouse Energy (PHE) ahead of its merger with almost insolvent Wastte2tricity. Peter Brailey exposed the ludicrous nature of Zak's ramping HERE yesterday.
I start with a few reflections on recordings I am doing and how lucky I am. there have been a lot of laughs so far today and to his credit the Sith Lord Zak Mir is quite funny. Anyhow, this is all for the Shareprophets Shares Conference where the 70 hours of video content really is, and I say so myself, of a very high quality. If you like bearcast, You really will enjoy what I am producing so book your tickets now HERE. In today's podcast I discuss the latest misguided thoughts of the one global star of the investment world not speaking next Saturday, I refer, of course, to Roger Lawson of ShareSoc, on regulation in the wake of the latest NMC (NMC) news. I then look ata clear failing where the FCA needs to act fast, Akazoo and the role of Tosca Fund. I am on the warpath.
Just before the long Easter weekend, Eurasia Mining (EUA), shares in which have now been suspended for more than two months, issued a partial ‘fess up. As I flagged up almost two months ago, Nomad WH Ireland has indeed resigned but why?
It is not often that a press release has me reaching for a dictionary but today’s Covid 19 update from Big Dish (DISH) manages that. The company’s evil spin doctor my old pal the Sith Lord Zak Mir, tries to use a long word but I am not sure he knows what it means.
Versarien (VRS) shares raced ahead yesterday as Doc Holliday pumped away, He has now admitted that he has sold most of his stock into that pump. Suckers! Today Neill Ricketts has done an interview with IG where the questions were blowjob soft and even so the bullshitter struggled as you can see below.
Nine days ago shares in Eurasia Mining (EUA), having rocketed to 7.3p were suspended following “social media” comments which we revealed to be a suggestion that after months of promising to sign an engagement letter with Chinese bank CITIC, that it had signed and was well on the way to making massive disposals. Since then amid a lack of news there has been nothing and he rumour mill is in overdrive. A statement on some of the rumours is needed now as some investors fear they may lose everything while others consider how many Porsches they will be buyng. So what are the rumours?
Updated: Eurasia Mining (EUA) boss Christian Schaffalitzky talked about a dividend, PR guru the Sith Lord Zak Mir was told to suggest on a secret chatroom that directors would be buying millions of pounds of shares in the market and the shares zoomed.
Well that is not something you don’t see on AIM every day. My share tip of the year at 4.6p to buy on January 1, Open Orphan (ORPH) now sees its shares, which I own some of, trading at 6.45-6.5p. But the excitement is only now starting – the company is now saying that a £5 million placing at a premium to today's share price looks set to be heavily oversubscribed. Let me explain what happens next.
All the signs are that AIM Regulation and hapless Nomad Canaccord is clamping down on the private Versarien (VRS) chatroom inhabited by Neill Ricketts and his Versarien cronies after shocking revelations like this HERE. However Winnileaks now has material from a similar chatroom on the private Telegram platform where Eurasia Mining (EUA) boss Dmitry Suschov and his proxies are "at play".
I explained in great detail in yesterday’s bearcast why Big Dish (DISH) chairman Jonathan Morley-Kirk needs to be fired or "resigned" at once over the statements made via RNS on May 30 a week ahead of a placing which, interims out yesterday, showed (again) to be a most monstrous lie. But those interims are also non IFRS compliant and must thus be reissued and for this latest bollocks up the man who is meant to bring City experience to the board, Morley-Kirk, must surely walk.
Powerhouse Energy (PHE) provided an interesting update on 23rd December which would see the company merge with Waste2Trricty Ltd and address one reason I called this a Sell back in August. Nice as this news was to the investment case, thie shares remain a sell.
A stream of articles on this monstrous lie was followed by lunch with Big Dish (DISH ) founder Aidan Bishop and his PR spinner the Sith Lord Zak Mir here at the Welsh hovel. I urged the company to make a full apology and to make serious boardroom charges. Today it has gone only half way there. It is not enough to make the shares investable.
The third annual Rogue Bloggers for Woodlarks walk is on June 13 2020. This year the route is increased by one mile to 34 miles and is from Winchester to the Woodlarks camp site. As ever, myself (Tom Winnifrith), Brokerman Dan and Lucian Miers will walk but we want as many others as possible to join us.
The Sith Lord Zak Mir and the head honcho at Big Dish (DISH) will arrive shortly at the Welsh Hovel to take me to lunch. Some folks have all the luck. Ahead of that I discuss two things where, to me, the numbers do not add up: Cloudcall PLC (CALL) and the Labour Party manifesto. I offer another, non financial, reason NOT to vote Labour HERE
I discuss Malcolm Graham Wood and his analysis of Sound Energy (SOU), Versarien (VRS) and its need for a statement, Amur (AMC) and its latest silly statement, Big Dish (DISH) and the threat of a visit from the Sith Lord Zak Mir to the Welsh Hovelm Plutus Powergen (PPG) and Bonhill (BONH) and what its statement does NOT say.
Is the, until today, CEO of Big Dish (DISH) Sanj Naha a liar? The articles we have run on this website over the past few months show that statements were issued by RNS in his name, notably on May 30 2019, that were lies. But did he act alone or is the whole board complicit?
Following weekend revelations HERE and HERE about the “rollout” of new restaurants signed up by Big Dish (DISH), this morning I have further bad news from Bristol and surely this means that the company must fess up with a formal trading statement/lack of profits warning now.
Anyone buying shares in Big Dish (DISH) is off their rocker at two levels, notwithstanding the appointment of my good friend, the Sith Lord Zak Mir as the company’s PR man. Firstly, as I discussed here, is the fact that it is prepared to tell manifest industrial scale lies to investors. Secondly…
I start, to annoy NoGold, by describing another hidden gem we have revealed at the Welsh Hovel. Then it is onto Castleton (CTP), Bahamas Petroleum (BPC) and Woodford Patient Capital Trust (WPCT). If, like the Sith Lord Zak Mir, you are going to the AIM Awards Dinner tonight just remember who ultimately has paid for your gluttony.
Yes my good friend is going to the AIM Awards dinner now that he is an evil PR man ( for Bigdish Ventures (DISH). Elsewhere I discuss the news about the Thomas Cook (TCG) stores and the lesson for Sirius Minerals (SXX). I look at Reabold (RBD), Brady (BRY) and Iconic Labs (ICON) as it serves up a bollocks packed RNS.
BigDish (DISH) “is pleased to announce that it has reached an agreement with NFS Technology Group to integrate BigDish within its Point of Sale software solution for restaurants” – noting “NFS Technology Group have been operating for over 20 years and has over 1,500 clients”. The shares are though currently more than 4% lower on the day at 3.25p. Hmmm…
In this third edition of the ShareProphets Radio podcast sponsored by Riverfort Global Capital, this week, in order I discuss the political threats to the UK stockmarket, interview the UK's best known chartist Zak Mir and then discuss all things Versarien (VRS), the most overpromoted stock on AIM, with bear raider Lucian Miers. 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 reflect on two sorts of fraudsters in the news, King conman Rob Terry HERE and chaps at Goals Soccer Centres (GOAL) HERE. I offer a cameo of life here in Greece explaining why the economy is such a joke, discuss Versarien (VRS) its latest news, the kiss of death from Zak Mir HERE, and its valuation and also comment on Optibiotix (OPTI) and the demise of the spivs at SVS Securities
As you may know I like the management at Big Dish (DISH) and its PR guru/Digital Communications Officer the Sith Lord Zak Mir is one of my very few friends. Pro tem. As such it pains me to say this but this company is now shown, with the publication of its results, to have lied to the market on May 30th 2019 in the most serious of ways, just eight days ahead of a £2.1 million placing. This should be jail time for someone.
We live in a mad, mad world and I cite four examples of this: the banning of the original US flag by Nike 48 hours ahead of July 4, illiterate Zak Mir going into PR, the PI love-in on Bulletin Boards with utterly worthless Premier African Minerals (PREM) and the IPO of Funding Circle (FCH). I look at Dialight (DIA), and Fastjet (FJET) and then list my top ten shorts worth more than £250 million (with two slightly smaller cheats included) and explain the bear case for each.
Oh dear, Oh Dear. We have another operational update today. This just looks ever more messy for Big Dish (DISH) as we once again return to the 30th May ramptastic RNS which came just seven days before a £2.1 million placing.
I've been part of ever one of Tom's investor shows since 2008, where as a new employee of t1ps.com, I was assigned to watch the door of a breakout room. This is the first year that I have largely seen it as a punter.
I think we have found an interviewer dimmer and more sycophantic than both the Sith Lord Zak Mir and Justin the Clown. I bring you a paid for video made by Core TV featuring an interview by a toothy bimbo with Lyin Steve Sanderson of UK Oil & Gas (UKOG). Shareholders should not worry about dilution, we are fully funded for our next two wells, look at the cash we are and will generate. Fabbo.
For 18 years Gervais Williams of Miton has been one of the UK's top small cap fund managers delivering an annualised return of 8.7% over that period, almost 2 points per annum better than the market. Miton (MGR) is itself listed and has been a good share to own. So what is the secret of Williams' success and what small cap shares is he buying or selling right now?
My daughter Olaf is on half term and bored so has called twice to discuss the great issues of the day. Being an Islington leftie she reckons that ISIS supporting nutter and her son should be allowed back into the UK. I disagree. In the podcast I also look at Footasylum (FOOT) and the lardbucket loud-mouth wild card when it comes to being short retail, at Yourgene (YGEN), Falanx (FLX), African Battery Metals (ABM) and Red Rock (RRR), Victoria (VCP), Motif Bio (MTBF) and Plexus (POS). To go heckle the Sith Lord Zak Mir, drink as much free booze as you can and grill Andrew Bell next Monday book your seat HERE
With the Sith Lord Zak Mirinterviewing him, Adam Reynolds had nothing to fear. But there were questions from the audience that were far more daunting and interesting than those posed by Britain's worst chartist.If you are, like me, a holder of Optibiotix (OPTI), Yourgene (TGEN) - my Q1 nap pick - Big Sofa (BST) - my tip of the year - or Conc epta (CPT) you will want to watch this. I have never been more bullish on the quartet. This will be our year and I know Adam feels the same. The next City forum hosted by the Sith Lord is February 25. Put the date in your diary now.
With the Sith Lord Zak Mir hosting, presenting CEO's knew they would some really tough questions (that's sarcasm folks) after presenting. Third up was Tony Sanders of Catenae (CTEA) The next City forum hosted by the Sith Lord is February 25. Put the date in your diary now.
With the Sith Lord Zak Mir hosting, presenting CEO's knew they would some really tough questions (that's sarcasm folks) after presenting. Second up was Glynis Frew of Hunters Property (HUNT) in which Nigel Wray is a big investor. The next City forum hosted by the Sith Lord is February 25. Put the date in your diary now.
With the Sith Lord Zak Mir hosting, presenting CEO's knew they would some really tough questions (that's sarcasm folks) after presenting. First up was Greg Bandy of Red Emperor (RMP) The next City forum hosted by the Sith Lord is February 25. Put the date in your diary now.
The one technical analyst we take seriously, no not the Sith Lord Zak Mir but Jordan Roy-Byrne, sees resistance levels on the charts for gold and silver which indicate that we are not in a bull market yet and indeed we may see some short term weakness. Courtesy of Palisade Capital, over to the great man...
If you are a shareholder in OptiBiotix, Sosandar, SkinBioTherapeutics, Yourgene, Concepta or Big Sofa then put 21st January in your diary now! That evening, the man who listed all those companies and who is still involved with or close to all, will be quizzed at the next UK Investor City Forum at PwC in the City of London. Places are limited to just 90 and are first come first served. You can book a free seat HERE.
The next City Forum is on January 21 with Adam Reynolds as the guest speaker being quizzed by the Sith Lord Zak Mir. I bet Adam's quaking about that grilling. Three companies will also present and take questions as will Adam. Put the date in your diary. From this week's seminar here is Brian Kinane of Riverfort Global Opportunities (RGO), formerly Paternoster Res presenting and taking questions.
The next City Forum is on January 21 with Adam Reynolds as the guest speaker being quizzed by the Sith Lord Zak Mir. I bet Adam's quaking about that grilling. Three companies will also present and take questions as will Adam. Put the date in your diary. From this week's seminar here is Britain's Buffett being interviewed by Three Brains himself
The next City Forum is on January 21 with Adam Reynolds as the guest speaker being quizzed by the Sith Lord Zak Mir. I bet Adam's quaking about that grilling. Three companies will also present and take questions as will Adam. Put the date in your diary. From this week's seminar here is Skinbiotherapeutics (SBTX) presenting and taking questions.

Okay, I know that an interview with Proactive Investor is not exactly taxing, the questions make those posed by the Sith Lord Zak Mir look like the Spanish Inquisition in full flow. But Optibiotix (OPTI) has more great news today and Steve O' Hara rams that home in the video below. The shares are 96p and I am certainly not selling any at anywhere near this price - they are going a lot higher.
In today's podcast I look at Tomco (TOM), Watchstone (WTG), the bastard son of Quenron, Condor Gold (CNR), dire numbers from WH Ireland (WHI) and the read across to the FinnCrap IPO, Amedeo Resources (AMED), the Sith Lord Zak Mir and Optibiotix (OPTI) and at Haydale (HAYD)
If you are a proven liar like Steve Sanderson of UK Oil & Gas (UKOG) who won't buy any shares in his own company but wants to ramp them ahead of the next placing what do you do? Easy. Pay Sharetalk (we will interview anyone who pays the fee) to record an interview with the Sith Lord Zak Mir who makes Justin the Clown look like the Spanish Inquisition and ramp away. Today's podcast is a classic bit of Leni-maths as Lyin' Steve explains to a credulous Zak how to value an oil stock and why UK Oil & Gas could be worth hundreds of millions of pounds if not more. Of course Lyin' Steve is talking utter crap as I explained HERE. Meanwhile enjoy...
Warning: This podcast contains references that vegans with a sense of humour bypass (i.e 99% of them) may find offensive. In this podcast I reflect on walking past a dark restaurant in a prime location yesterday. I consider Vodafone (VOD) and the security of its dividend. Finally I ponder whether I am being far too harsh on a company ramped in a sordid manner by Justin the Clown and the Sith Lord Zak Mir and run by a total knobhead, that is to say Amur Minerals (AMC)
Share Talk is a website that takes money from, usually, crap companies. It does not appear discerning. If you are a PLC with a cheque book come on down! It does not disclose its business model and it then provides what it terms “the Independent voice across social media” or what you and I would term sordid share ramping. Shares in Conroy Gold (CGNR) are up 30% today to 13p to sell thanks to such ramping. But before you get too carried away….
AIM-listed online ladies fashion wear start-up Sosandar (SOS) has seen its shares race even further ahead, as I predicted last week. At the weekend, with the shares a noggin below the 40p mark, I said it would be time to sell another tranche into what I expected would be a bit of a rally into the AGM when I would imagine a trading statement will be forthcoming. Today (thus far) the shares have clocked up yet another record high of 45.5p in the middle and I helped myself, selling a lump at 42.44p. But I am still holding over a third of my original holding.
Okay the video is from blowjob TV that is to say Proactive from yesterday and thus the interviewer makes Zak Mir look like Jeremy Paxman. But, remembering that chairman Davidson has a reputation to lose, take note of what he implies about buying even more shares and also about deals not yet announced. His quiet confidence is clear and that is why even at 86p-88p you would be certifiable if you sold. We certainly will not be at anywhere near this level.
If only I was not in Greece, I would be sorely tempted to head along to an evening of free booze hosted by the Sith Lord Zak Mir and the disgusting piece of Northern slum vermin that is Richard "Gollum" Gill. Seriously it could be fun.
The chart of UK Oil & Gas (UKOG) looks truly sickly. It might well have been a Zak Mir charting buy it looks that bad. However much paid promoters like Malcolm Graham Wood and the (dwindling) armies of its BBM fans say buy, the trend is clear. So how about a Christmas contest?
Want to get the best sell ideas on AIM? Just ask Zak Mir for his hot buy ideas and the Sith Lord kiss of death will not take long to play out. The world's worst chartist will be serving up more duff calls next Wednesday evening at NEX Exchange in Broadgate. There is more.
It is an old stockmarket truism, just like "everything tipped by both Zak Mir and Justin the Clown will always go down". But while the latter truism bears the test of time, proving to be 100% accurate how did the former do in 2017?
Interims from Strat Aero (AERO) today are dire. They show a company that was bust on June 30, one with zero earnings visibility and an ongoing cash burn. There is a lack profits warning and a tacit admission that a bailout placing is inevitable. I should cocoa. But even if there is a heavily discounted bailout this company is probably toast. The shares are worth 0p. SELL. This is, like most stocks promoted by the Sith Lord, Zak Mir, toast.
Our very own Gary Newman nailed this spot on at the weekend flagging up that an almighty pump in Arian Silver (AGQ) was underway. Our sober, harsh but fair coverage contrasts well with the really sordid rampfest that saw the shares pushed ahead ahead of a placing today raising £600,000 at just 0.5p.
This is not the normal fare from gold bulls Palisade Capital. The firm's technical analyst Jordan Roy Byrne is uber bearish warning that July will be awful for both gold and gold stocks. Watch the latest video from Jordan, for a TA saddo he is better than most. All we need now is the Sith Lord Zak Mir saying that the charts look bullish and the bear case would be complete.
Yesterday morning I ran a piece pointing out that at 0.15p the valuation of PCGE (PCGE) was utterly insane and anyone buying shares (at up to 0.16p!) deserved the beating that would surely follow. It did not take long. At 2.19 PM the company announced it had raised £400,000 at 0.1p. Ouch. The shares are now 0.11p to sell. BBMs 0 The Sheriff of AIM 1. A familiar scoreline.
England (well mainly the South East) subsidises Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland. C'est la vie. It is part of being a United Kingdom. Personally I'd send all the Celtic loons packing, give them their independence and slash taxes for we hard working residents of England. But that is not the way and just to rub our noses in it, Welsh resident, Malcolm Stacey celebrates how local councils and the Welsh Assrembly have ponied up £50 million to turn some Godforsaken post industrial shit hole in South Wales into a new "Silicon Valley." Bollocks.
Amur Minerals (AMC) was one of the great mining junior ramps of the past 12 months. With the Sith Lord Zak Mir and Justin the Clown leading the charge using bogus charting tomfoolery and soft interviews with the CEO Robin Young, the shares surged to 15p in December at the height of the rampfest. They are now 6.25p to sell and heading sharply lower. What say you rampers? How about "Tom Winnifrith's repeated bearcast warnings were spot on and Zak & Justin The Clown were talking 100% cock as usual?"
Another day and another ramptastic "Operations Update" from Andalas Energy (ADL). Operations is a bit of a strong word as Andalas does not really have any. It should really have been "Jam Tomorrow" update but then again tomorrow suggests the jam may arrive which, given the track record of this dog, looks unlikely. What will arrive on Friday is a demand for £500,000 and as Andalas has sod all cash and is burning what it has at a rate of knots that is a bit of a problem. Oddly this is not mentioned in today's RNS.
A brief walk around tour of today's sights including two real celebs...and also Zak Mir
As the well-known saying goes, turnover is vanity, profit is sanity but cash is king! How then, should you refer to a company that displays either zero or negative for all three? Welcome to the fantasy world of EVR Holdings (EVRH), the holding company for buzz-word bingo business MelodyVR.
A couple of days ago I noted how the London South East Bulletin Board ( aka the LSE Asylum) appeared to be heading towards insolvency - HERE. It is the fate which, almost, invariably happens to companies that hire Zak, the Sith Lord, Mir. For Judas is also Jonah. And now a closer examination of its historic numbers shows that the crisis may be far worse than even we thought. Timber!!!!!
Yesterday we advised our readers to bank gains in LGO Energy (LGO) at a 3.9p bid - that would be a 77% gain on an offer to bid basis made in 14 days. Not bad eh? All those idiots who questioned why we tipped LGO have their answer: to make money for our readers. And that we did. The shares are now 3.7p offer. Paying customers (just £5) come first so got out at higher levels. The rationale for the take profits advice is clear - our article from behind the paywall reads:
After languishing unloved for a while in the low sixties, shares in Optibiotix (OPTI) are really steaming ahead and are now 78p to buy. We hope you bought in the low sixties as we repeatedly urged. If not it is not too late. The shares are a buy at up to 80p and I expect to be advising you to sell at WELL OVER 100p by Easter. So what has happened?
Having last raised money at 0.2p earlier this year shares in Andalas (ADL) are sliding again and are now just 0.1p- 0.105p. Oh dear. It really is time for CEO Dave "the Rule Breaker" Whitby to fess up and admit that the placing is underway and, it seems, not going well.
I have pointed out a number of times in recent weeks that not only is Andalas Energy (ADL) really very close to the wire in terms of running out of cash but that it is also on a ramptastic promotional exercise which all adds up to placing ahoy! But now I have confirmation.
A slight tweak in the ShareProphets business model means that as of November 1st nearly all, of the e-books that I have penned will no longer be available for free on this website - you will have to buy them on Amazon. So you have just TODAY to get free copies of titles such as "The 49 Golden Rules of making Money from Shares" as well as the 49 Red Flags book and the book Ben Flip Flop Turney and I produced on how to value oil, gas and mining shares. The same applies to Zak Mir's crap e-book on charting.
The Mail on Sunday is such a truly vile publication that as a service to this website, I read it so that you do not have to, just in case it contains anything of interest. This week amid the usual nonsense about how immigrants give you cancer and a scoop about loathsome crook Keith Vaz MP playing away from his Mrs with a couple of Polish rentboys, the paper covers ramp de jour Cloudtag (CTAG). Needless to say the coverage is shocking.
AIM Rule breaker Dave Whitby of worthless crock of Turkish, Andalas Energy (ADL) is now officially on a ramptastic rampage as he works out how to get a bailout placing away before the New Year in order to stave off bankruptcy in the early part of 2017. Surely it is only a matter of time before he does another interview with Justin the Clown and gets the full ramping crew from Vox Markets and Big Gib's Momentous Events into action. After all, folks are only 90% down from buying into the ramp last time. What could possibly go wrong?
Oh dear. Oh dear. AIM Casino bad boy Strat Aero (AERO) does not like seeing emails which show clear evidence of industrial scale fraud and market abuse appearing in public. That is the emails you can see HERE in the $20 million legal claim filed against by proud Texan Hulsey Smith. And so on Monday it went to court to stop the flow of information and to get existing articles pulled.
Ok this is my declaration of war because the fraud and crimes at Strat Aero (AERO) concern not just this one POS AIM Casino company but also touch many other players in the game. You can read the explosive 338 page legal document we published on Friday HERE. I am amazed that some of those named in it, Zak Mir for instance, have still not read it. They should. But mark my words, what went on at Strat goes on across the AIM board every single working day. If this really blows up there are an awful lot of folks who will be sweating.
The last placing from Andalas Energy (ADL) was in April at 0.2p. As those punters who paid up to 1.3p suckered in by Dave "rule breaker" Whitby, disgraced ramper Big Gob, ooops sorry Big Gib, and Justin the Clown screamed in agony they must have thought things could get no worse. Au contraire...
Old Gervais is a credible fund manager so what on earth is he doing appearing on a new video show "The spiv Olympics" produced by the LSE Asylum? Its host is Sith Lord Zak "I will do anything, tip any crap for money" Mir, guest one is some barrow boy from low life bucket shop Optiva and the third guest is an uber-spiv from the Asylum itself. So far in three days only 480 folks have watched this shite and Darren and myself are two of them. But Zak needs the money so needs the Asylum to think he has a mass audience so do your bit to assist a poor chartist.
Dave "Rule breaker" Whitby and his colleagues at AIM Listed Piece of Turkish Andalas Energy (ADL) are on the spoof again with a ramptastic RNS saying nothing at all of of any interest whatsoever. Folks know Whitby's game and the shares are off at just 0.165p because what is really happening is the start of the ramping that proceeds a deeply discounted placing. Next up a soft interview with Zak "Judas" Mir, a podcast with Justin the clown or a presentation at a Proactive seminar? Perhaps a buy note from Edison? We have seen the Andalas ramp before and surely no-one is stupid enough to buy it again?
With Challenger Acquisitions (CHAL) trading at a 52-week low during Friday at 20.75p, and having just lost eight minutes of my life watching Zak Mir’s recent “mauling” of Mark Gustafson, CEO, in yet another paid for ramping interview on TipTV, I wondered whether this was the beginning of the end of the ride for Mark and Challenger.
Thor Mining (THR) has just issued a release saying that its CEO has recorded an interview with Zak Mir for the lamentable t1psTV. Jesus wept: like it thinks we care? But there is something that CEO Mick Billing is not telling anyone tempted to buy into this rampfest.
Paid for researcher Edison is, of course most famous as being the employer of convicted felon Champagne Charlie Gibson but it is also there to take cash for helping ramp shares in piss poor companies. And few companies could be as piss poor as Avanti Communications (AVN) run by uber bombast David "not worth a million bucks a year" Williams. But not only does Edison publish crap research on Avanti with a target price of 427p. It also does video interviews. Cripes, the bird quizzing Williams makes Zak Mir look like Jeremy Paxman on steroids. As you enjoy this shite from Edison you will note the shares are now just 59.5p as Williams seeks emergency bailout funding. Oi, taffy its time for a statement!
Oh dear, Oh dear, when even those you pay to produce buy notes, refuse to promote your shares you know that you are in trouble. Equity Development, which has been pumping Fastjet hard since 2013 has today said it cant set a target price any more. Cripes, I suppose that if FastJet can spare a few quid it could always get Gollum and Zak Mir to ramp its shares but back to those paid for rampers we can take, at least a bit, seriously.
Earlier today we flagged up a planned rampfest investor evening organised by jam tomorrow and hot air producer Inspirit Energy (INSP) which - according to the original RNS - featured an array of attractions including Zak Mir - who was laughably described as the UK's favourite technical analyst, which Nomad signed off on that crap? - and a chance to quiz FD Nilesh Jagatia. Oh goodie goodie thought a number of folk from the Teather (TEA) shareholder action group who would like to ask Nilesh about how he has trainwrecked their company and if he condones blackmail?
We have been on the case of bargepole stock Fusionex (FXI) since the world's greatest tech analyst Kevin Ashton flagged it up as a sell at UK Investor 2015. The bear case grew with Zak Mir giving it the kiss of death with not one but two buy tips but it was the trading statement last Autumn that really woke folks up to the genius of Ashton as an analyst and of Mir as a counter-indicator. Today we have interims. Natch, the shares are down - at 158p - but the stance remains a stand out sell.
There has been a real attempt to ramp Inspirit Energfy (INSP) on a six month timeframe ahead of today's placing. There were tweets from my fave Monaco based Colonial with whom I have a summer truce and whom I thus shall not mention, the utterly meaningless share purchases (spoofed ya!) by John Gunn and a series of soft paid for interviews with Sith Lord Zak "Judas" Mir and others when Mr Gunn said there was no need for a placing. So today there was a placing.
The last time I got a "late night" text from David Bick, the thirsty PR man for share ramper David Lenigas, the Guv'nor warned me not to go to his Manor in E13 or else.... But as Bick prepares to see his client Jabba The Hutt exposed on Saturday at UK Investor show and with his client now reduced to tweting out blatant lies that just make him look a pathetic wretch, I have received another bizzare late night text.
In this podcast special I look at Andalas (ADL), the lessons for folks and also the future if it has one and where should the shares go and where will they go. All the clowns are in there, flip flop Ben Turney, the Sith Lord Zak "Judas" Mir,, Dave "rule breaker" Whitby and of course the crown prince of clowns, Justin the Clown himself
Do you have any questions for the new management team at Strat Aero (AERO)? I do and they are below. Would you like to quiz whoever is in charge well thanks to the Sith Lord Zak "Judas" Mir you can. You can also ask Judas a few questions and, to get the ball rolling, I have one regarding David Lenigas.
There was some oustanding abuse handed out to disgraced journalist smearer and fat Aussie share ramper David Lenigas in our latest caption contest as you can see here. The winner?
I have noted before that the little watched internet TV channel tipTV charges companies to appear then serves up a soft ramptastic interview and fails to declare that it is being paid to pull its punches and assist the rampathon. This is wholly unacceptable but tip TV persists. I guess it needs the cash.
Ramp ramp ramp, Neil Ritson of Solo Oil (SOLO) is in full ramptastic action right now as he tries to pump the shares ahead of a placing - just do the frigging maths, a discounted offering is inevitable. You can't do the maths? Let me assist.
A wide ranging podcast starts with comments on Eden Research, Ken Brooks and the abject failure of the FSA/FCA to protect investors. Then it is onto three shite companies starting with the letter M : Magnolia Petroleum (MAGP), Motive TV (MTV) and Mosman (MSMN). I look at Circle Oil (COP), Trinity (TRIN) and Tethys (TPL) as well as Servision (SEV) where my target price remains 0p. Then a brief stockmarket lesson for the Sith Lord on what a dead cat bounce actually means and a look at Aureus Mining (AUE).
Philip Jackson was appointed as CEO of Boxhill (BOX) currently suspended - as noted here - on 24 May 2013 and was, according to the wimpish chairman Lord Tim Razzall, a thoroughly good bloke. Lord Razzall noted: "I am excited by the substantial opportunities that the acquisition of Poseve provides and I look forward to working alongside Phil, James and the existing team." Perhaps he should have looked at Phil's other business interests a little more closely.
It is not a great day for the AIM Casino. First down PeerTV (PTV) and now Oxus Gold (OXS) has called in the administrators and Nomad SP Angel has quit. The shares have been suspended since it lost its spurious legal case in Uzbekistan and now the money has all gone.
AIM casino listed Servision (SEV) went public on New Year's Eve 2004 ad has been a serial disappointer ever since. More than eleven years on its shares have collapsed, more than $14.672 million has been sent to money heaven and the only commendation one can make is its consistency. It is always losses, more losses, more jam tomorrow and when's the placing? And it is that matter that needs addressing for the answer must be soon. Beware the ramp.
Nigel Somerville has today posted a pithy explanation of a Red Flags No-one is watching O'Clock RNS from Tethys Petroleum (TPL) which shows that it is toast. But there were three killer red flags here you might have noted from way back.
On 21st December - as all normal folks were not watching - much ramped AIM casino telematics play TrakM8 (TRAK) announced the £9.1 million purchase of Route Monkey Holdings, a transaction which is nonsensical - if one bothers reading Monkey's 2014 accounts - but given that Trak's own shares are ludicrously overvalued who really cares?
