If Paul Smith of Morses Club does not go to jail for insider dealing the FCA is admitting that it is a not fit for purpose joke!

Today Morses Club (MCL) served up a horrible profits warning and announced that its CEO Paul Smith was leaving with immediate effect.  The shares have crashed by 26p to just 15.95p. But last last week one lucky trader dumped 464,119 shares at 42.65p almost his entire holding. That lucky trader was Paul Smith. If this is not insider dealing I am a banana. Here is the timeline and why the FCA MUST feel Smith’s collar asap.

No Insider Dealing Honest Guv: Chill Brands car crash trading statement – it is even worse than it looks

Yesterday saw two trades of 2,005,106 and 2,550,000 Chill Brands (CHLL) shares dumped well below the offer at 14.25p. That is more than 2% of the equity. There were other big sells below the bid on Monday. Was a major shareholder at last accepting that I was right or was this just canny de-risking as today there is a trading statement which is so terrible it is hard to know where to start. No doubt the FCA will ensure there is no story of insider dealing to tell. So how bad is the statement? It is dire.

Yosi Fait sold all his shares in Telit (TCM) AFTER it breached its banking covenants which as FD he must have known about as he must also have been aware that first half trading was way below forecast. But the company's new chairman has taken external legal guidance and said Yosi did nothing wrong and so has appointed him full time CEO. Well that's alright then. But there is yet another catastrophic profits warning ( as predicted) which begs the question of how great is debt now and will bank covenants be breached again?

Echo Energy shares suspended after no insider dealing on AIM, honest guv!

Shares in uber-ramped Echo Energy (ECHO) were suspended today after a sharp share price move on Friday forced an admission from the company. Hmmmm, heavy share dealing just before a big announcement. But this is AIM, the world's most successful growth market so that is just a total coincidence just like it always is on the casino. Move along gents..nothing to see.

Management Resource Solutions Fined £85,000 by LSE but this is a whitewash and cover up

Management Resource Solutions (MRS) has today been fined £125,000 (reduced to £85,000 for co-operating with the LSE) for lying to investors back in 2015. But this is a whitewash and a cover-up protecting the establishment. The LSE notes that only the FD remains from 2015 and finds he was blameless. Cock. There is no censure of the Nomad (Northland) which was reckless in its lack of due diligence. How do I know this? Because it took me 30 minutes of internet research to expose this scandal back in April 2015 HERE.

Reader Comment of the Week - Evil Banksta's damning analysis of Telit. its far worse than CEO insider dealing

Evil Banksta is an occasional writer here and is evil because he really is a banker by profession. As such he does know about banking covenants, the relationship between corporate borrowers and lenders and that sort of thing. As such his comments on Telit (TCM) really are damning and merit a wider audience. Before we get to Evil Banksta I am just flabbergasted by why CEO Yosi Fait has not been fired.

What exactly was the Telit Covenant Breach - this will determine how long CEO Yosi Fait should spend in jail

Perhaps Sam Smith, CEO of Nomad FinnCap which appears happy for the CEO's of corporate clients to engage in industrial scale insider dealing, can help us with this problem?

A letter to Finncap CEO Sam Smith: are you a big supporter of insider dealing?

Generally I would have thought that the CEO of one of London's biggest Nomads, Sam Smith of FinnCap, would have disapproved of insider dealing. It is, after all a criminal offence. But I am not so sure any more. After recent revelations at Telit (TCM) it seems Samantha does not think it is anything to worry about. I have dropped her a letter just to make sure and cc'd in the head of AIM Regulation, Mr Marcus Stuttard, as I am sure he and his colleagues the Oxymorons would like to know where Sam stands.

Three critical days in June & 3 more in July - why acting CEO at Telit Yosi Fait must be fired NOW!

Yesterday there were more revelations about Telit (TCM) which, as I noted, made the position of former FD now CEO Yosi Fait all the more tricky. Now I want to revisit three days in June and three in July - events then make Yosi's position utterly untenable and explain why he must be fired at once. He is guilty of either extreme and sackable levels of incompetence and of lying to shareholders and insider dealing or of just insider dealing. It is one or the other - there is no third way. So there is no way out for Telit, Yosi must be sacked at once.

Wanna buy shares at 11 cents when a £3.50 bid has been tabled? Welcome to the crazy world of Africa New Energies

Back in February 2017 I was contacted by a private company Africa New Energies asking if I wanted to buy shares in a placing at 11 cents. Since the company is run by Stephen Larkin, a man who takes advice from loathsome Richard "Gollum" Gill I was nor rushing to sign up. But then I was told, but we are going to be taken over soon at 350p per share a bid has been tabled! Er... so is this placing not sort of insider dealing I asked?

We all know about Rob Terry’s insider dealing in shares in November 2014 thanks to the shysters at Equities First Holdings.

Optimal Payments and Cloudbuy – nervous moments as EFH margin calls loom

Last year Optimal Payments (OPAY) was forced to come (semi) clean over a loan package between its CEO, Mr Joel Leonoff, and Equities First Holdings LLC (EFH). Optimal originally told that market on 1 April 2014 that Mr Leonoff had pledged 1.5 million shares in the company as collateral for a loan of approx. £4m, but failed to mention a few details such as the non-recourse nature of the package and that EFH was free just to dump the stock into the market. This did not become clear until it was exposed on ShareProphets last autumn and resulted in a number of clarifications from Optimal, along with AIM-listed Igas (IGAS), Cloudbuy (CBUY), Quindell (QPP), IQE (IQE) and Angle (AGL).

Sadly I have to agree with this sentiment, but this instance of seemingly clear-cut insider dealing has caught my eye.

Long, long chats yesterday with a Liverpool lawyer and a helpful reader email allow me, I think, to explain why the underlying cashflow miss at Quindell in H2 2014 was in fact UP TO £85 million ( not the £45-60 million I had demonstrated). And I think the key to the miss is accruals and when Quenron started its Industrial Deafness push and how it accrues for it. This is a bit geeky but I believe explains the mystery in full. It has clear implications for the Rob Terry insider dealing case, demonstrates clear market abuse and also if one reads through to 2015 shows why Quindell is insolvent.

I guess the in-tray for Laurence Moorse,  the insider dealing Finance Director at Quindell (QPP), is getting to be a little on the bulging side: folks owed £180 million by the cash strapped company demanding immediate payment; letters from the FCA, letters from AIM regulation, the PWC memos on his dodgy accounting and now to add to his woes …Companies House has confirmed that its on his case.

Rob Terry of Quindell should face AT LEAST 7 years in prison and a £19 million fine – how many times has he insider dealt?

The chocolate teapots that are the SFO/FCA have prosecuted just 46 people for insider dealing and 29 have been found guilty and not one has been sent to prison. But the scale of Rob Terry’s Quindell crimes mean he should be the first. I suggest he face the maximum 7 year prison stretch and a fine of £19 million (fines can be unlimited) – the question is how many times has he dealt on inside knowledge.

Quindell Warning Bearcast: Implications for Rob Terry, Cenkos, shareholders - what next?

I have just had a Quindell (QPP) shareholder on the phone. Not any old shareholder but a veteran of class actions. I warn you KPMG, Rob Terry and Cenkos you are potentially in big trouble, this man is very serious and knows exactly what he is doing. Ahead of that I examine what happens next for Cenkos, Rob Terry and shareholders. It is not pretty. And I now have new questions for the FCA about the scale of Rob Terry's insider dealing.

Oi Quindell are you sure your customers still love you? Tell us about Swinton

Quindell (QPP) insists that its suppliers and customers still have faith in it and that none at all have been spooked by its shares falling 90%, its founder Rob Terry being sacked and investigated for insider dealing and the fact that Quenron is paying suppliers ever later. Of course that is patent bollocks so Quenron tell us about Swinton?

I Demand the FCA & AIM Investigate David Currie and Robert Fielding of Quindell for market abuse and breaching AIM Rules

The stand in bosses of Quindell, The captains that will see the ship go under are Mr David Currie and the insider dealing Rob Fielding. Together with the insider dealing Finance Director Laurence Moorse they know that cash is well below market forecasts and that profits forecasts will not be met because there are gargantuan write-offs off goodwill and bogus revenues looming – that I proved today HERE.

Hello share varlets. BT (BT.A), or British Telecom as I continue to call it, is a very ambitious company. Consequently it has a very exciting share.

The stench of fraud, corruption, lies and deceit at Quenron (QPP) is now obvious to all but the biggest moron.

Let's reveal another scandal at Quenron.  This will horrify you. Meet Overland and meet Jason Cale.

Letter to the FCA: Robert Fielding CEO of Quindell is Guilty of Insider Dealing – please investigate

We already know that the FCA is investigating Rob Terry, Steve Scott and Laurence Moorse of Quindell for insider dealing – they are clearly guilty in that they sold millions of quid’s worth of shares knowing that join broker Canaccord had quit but without letting the market know that. But now I also accuse CEO Robert Fielding of insider dealing and wonder if this is why Canaccord quit on October 21st. I have written to the FCA (and cc’d in AIM Regulation as well as the chumps round at Cenkos) asking that the FCA widens the Quindell insider dealing enquiry to include Fielding.

What Would I do now if I was Rob Terry of Quindell?

So far my cunning plan to help Rob Terry get as much cash as possible before the Quindell (QPP), cough, cough consultant goes to prison is working brilliantly. I advised him to resign HERE and he duly took my advice. Rob I have already accrued a £10,000 consultancy fee for that can you be a good fellow and post me a cheque with a small portion of your ill-gotten gains. Now what next?

Rob Terry you are a liar, a fraudster and now I also accuse you of insider dealing. I shall not rest until you go to prison you low life vermin criminal.

Cloudbuy – Contract RNS and Director Dealings

I have long been a fan of Cloudbuy (CBUY) – an interesting idea looks set to go places. Operating in the B2B arena, Cloudbuy has developed a platform for B2B sales – think of it as a kind of Ebay for business and you get the picture.

Westminster Group Insider Dealing ahead of Placing – why are the City Spivs allowed to get away with it?

Westminster Group (WSG) last Thursday decided to raise just over £1 million in a placing for reasons I understand and believe to make sense. When the calls from its broker SP Angel started to be made the share price was 50p in the middle. That was late Thursday afternoon.

Minoan Placing at 12p – Insider Dealing on the AIM Cesspit

On 19th May shares in Minoan (MIN) traded at 16.375p on the AIM Cesspit. Then they started slipping and slipping and closed yesterday at 13.625p. Today a placing is announced at 12p. What do I conclude? That crony capitalists in the City are not content with buying stock at a discount but that they also engage in insider dealing. They break the law. Will the FCA do anything to stop the fuckers? What do you think?

Another day and more documents emerge.
