David Lenigas has ramped the insolvent standard list company where he has seized control, PennPetro (PPP) on twitter with gay abandon as we have detailed here on a number of occasions. I hope those who ignored our numerous warnings of its technical insolvency, shit assets and Lenigas ramping lubed up, for today the shares have been suspended.
With the FCA continuing to pretty much ignore market abuse at the lower end of AIM, it has become almost the done thing for some insiders to try and manipulate the price of shares, whilst knowing that an equity fundraise is being worked.
You may remember that when Big Dave was at UK Oil & Gas (UKOG) right at the start of the Horse Hill farce, AIM regulation stepped in to force a retraction of claims that the area contained 6 billion barrels of oil. It seems that Big Dave is at it again.
Another day dawns and yet again Canadian Overseas Petroleum (COPL) has issued yet more shares. This is a death spiral on steroids but of you do the maths you must be a nonce. I am kidding. But at least some of the morons who own the stock are not. Let me explain.
Okay I lied about doing a training walk today for Rogue Bloggers for Woodlarks. I offer two excuses and will do an extra two miles tomorrow. Please do donate HERE. Then I discuss why you should never mention anything critical of transgender folk or even, as did I, ask a question, as you will be flamed all day as I have been. Then I discuss Versarien (VRS), Supply@ME Capital (SYME) and the morons who own the shares.
If you see Lucian tweeting out #COYS or Buy Cineworld (CINE) you know what has happened!. I start this podcast on the subject of home made apple juice then cover Cineworld, Alien Metals (UFO), Skinbiotherapeutics (SBTX) and Jubilee Metals (JLP)
Anglesey Mining (AYM) appears to be trawling for followers on twitter. with a claim that it has "material value not currently in the share price". That sort of activity for a company now running on vapours is a massive red flag. At least some of the responses show folks calling out this spoofing by charlatans for what it is.
I see that, on twitter, comrade Gary Newman of this parish is suggesting that he is tempted by Audioboom (BOOM) largely because he sees there being more and more demand for podcasts.as his friend and colleague I urge him to sit down in a dark room, dream about kissing poisonous spiders in the jungle, and think again. Today’s 2022 trading update adds to the bear case as outlined by Lucian Miers in his tip of the year HERE, it is no reason to buy.
Will the online harm bill do anything to protect journalists facing constant online harassment including a celebration of violence against them? I doubt it. I bring you Tuesday's TW troller of the day.
A wise man suggests that I should not publish the details below of the alleged $100 million social media shares fraud as it might give certain folks in Airstrip One a few ideas of how they can up their game. But I do so anyway. Can you think of a podcast host who invites on private investors posing as BSD traders to pump their stocks with daft price targets. Who checks on whether the host or guests trade into the spikes? As for twitter pumpers...don't get me started. Anyhow enjoy what is below, and if you have comments about UK citizens engaging in similar practices post away and I will approve.
We all know the sort of wretched individuals who pump and manipulate small cap UK stock prices on twitter by telling knowing falsehoods but the FCA, despite being provided with evidence does SFA. In the US it is different. A release from the SEC shows how to do what the FCA refuses to do because it is too busy monitoring how many lesbians or BAME folk sit on the Climate Change committees at UK PLC.
I have always taken the view that Elon Musk is a crook and that he has committed serial fraud at Tesla (TSLA). It is so 2022 that this has made him the world’s richest man. Notwithstanding that, the way he is dealing with his new toy twitter is a joy to behold, not least in the way that it is causing wailings and howlings from all corners of the liberal world, especially today as Elon has said he will sack half the workforce by the weekend. Pro tem Elon is my hero!
I start with proof below of what an "earth mum" I have become and the blue tick issue on Twitter. Then I look at Avacta (AVCT), Chill Brands (CHLL), Wildcat Petroleum (WCAT), Pure Gold (PUR) and ouzo for Nigel and then Argo Blockchain (ARB) a triumph for the forces of good, transparency, honesty and hard analysis. That is to say myself & Boatman Capital. And a disaster for certain named individuals who are drawn from the forces of evil.
Elon Musk need not worry about snowflakes quitting twitter and so numbers dropping. He seems to be getting new folks joining all the time. The hate preacher Anjem Choudary says that if Elon believes in free speech he wants to rejoin in order to preach his support for ISIS, for killing jews and homosexuals and for turning Buckingham Palace into a mosque, Over to you Elon. And there are new bogus Gary Newman's appearing, to swell the ranks of Elon's customers. This one has now disappeared but, as you can see below, a new bogus Gary has appeared.
Over on twitter Richard Poulden and his fellow Australian hustler, the shameless penny share ramper David Lenigas, are claiming that Valereum Blockchain (VLRM) changing adviser is good news. Whatever….Back on planet earth.
As you can see below yet another fake Gary Newman has appeared on twitter. The photo is Gary. The name is Gary. And the @ is almost Gary, except there is one extra letter added. So what is happening here?
1,271 folks follow Nigel Hassard on twitter for a non stop diet of tweets about why you should buy shares in Bidstack (BIDS). Given the level of delusion from Nigel the question one asks is who is he trying to fool? Himself or other morons? Take this absolute gem below.
The shameless ramper is at it again. Yesterday, the boss of Predator Oil & Gas (PRD) unleashed a Twitter volley, as shown below. The last tweet is, arguably, the sort of material that should be left for an RNS. This is a massive red flag, especially when Lonny is actively deceiving. I underline one tweet that is simply not true.
In today's podcast, I discuss Elon Musk and Twitter; Vast Resources (VAST) & associated scumbags; Optibiotix (OPTI); Condor Gold (CNR) and why comrade Jim Mellon must pay up soon; and the complete and utter Irish jackanory spouted by Hydrogen Utopia (HUI) and Powerhouse Resources (PHE): those holding shares in either company are certifiable. We are now just £68 away from £10,000 in the Rogue Bloggers for Woodlarks (plus gift aid) fundraise. On Sunday, I really will do a 20-mile training walk. If you are amongst the 96% of listeners yet to donate, please do so today, HERE.
Bitcoin has rallied overnight, and is back above $30,000; that will, no doubt, convince more millennials that BOTFD is the way to make money in a Ponzi. But will the rally continue? If not, this poses – as I flagged up yesterday, here – massive questions for Argo Blockchain (ARB). Bear raider, Boatman, which exposed a host of red flags at Argo, took to Twitter to raise additional issues, and we followed up with an e-chat.
I start on the news from Twitter & Elon Musk. Then, I look at Wildcat Petroleum (WCAT); Novacyt (NCYT); Vast Resources (VAST); the stinking RNS from Nightcap (NGHT); and Versarien (VRS), where the TWO death spirals are starting to bite, as the cash crisis intensifies.
The failure of twitter to clean up the sort of filth that makes it a sewer relates to this tweet.The matter of unusual prayers is discussed at the end of the podcast. The diary date is for THISEVENT and the I chat about the 3xs, not my ex wives but the sources an investigative journalist needs. One 3x was in touch on Friday ….
46 years ago my mother killed herself. I do not hide the fact and yes it is an event that saddens me. But I do not expose folks like Julie Meyer, who has fled Britain to avoid a six month jail term, owes taxes all over the world and is the subject of an FCA Criminal investigation because of what happened in on Oxford hospital in 1976 but because folks like Julie Meyer should be exposed. The tweet below ike others were Meyer incites the mob with talk of terrorism has been reported to twitter but nothing will be done.
The chap below blocked me on Twitter as I did not know what I was talking about when it came to Omega Diagnostics (ODX). He did, of course, and now he has lost so much money he cannot bring himself to ‘fess up to his Mrs that he has trashed the family finances. I do actually feel sorry for him though no doubt he has said a lot of beastly things about me. It will be of no consolation to him when folks, the sort of Omega owning folks who egged on his enthusiasm, say things will get better or he can learn from this. Things may improve for Omega and I hope he learns but right now he must feel pretty rotten. The biggest lesson, of course, is never to put all your eggs in one basket. Perhaps a second one is that, on bear calls, whatever you read on Bulletin Boards,I am almost always right.
I have had to agree to remove two tweets directed at Walbrook PR man Paul “Queenie McManus” as Twitter says that I am harassing the poor little bunny. I have had, in an Orwellian way, to admit to Big Brother that I did indeed harass Queenie and must now suffer 12 hours of twitter silence on the naughty step. So here is what I said and why it was utterly fair and did not, in fact,break twitter rules.
Argo Blockchain (ARB) today ‘fessed that it had briefed someone who appears to be an unemployed fund manager, Anthony Coyle, with price sensitive information some of which he misunderstood and then tweeted it all out. Argo has this morning addressed some of the errors on the, since deleted, tweets but not some that are accurate and even more damning. What on earth is a supposedly grown up company playing at? And now, we can reveal exclusively, that bear raider Boatman Capital has piled in.
I explain why there was no bearcast yesterday. Then I look at the part this household is playing in the fuel crisis. It is all about psychology. Then a look at Real Good Food (RGF) and companies delisting before a look at the pathetic punishments for the enablers of fraud at Patisserie Holdings (CAKE) I also look at what Australian regulators are doing to tackle pump and dump twitter gangs while the FCA jerks off on more ESG porn doing nothing about tackling real crime. I flag up Aura Energy (AURA) in this regard.
I start with a reflection on two smears from Bulletin Board Morons and about how media platforms from BBs to twitter need to respond to deal with such malice. Then a few thoughts on why the Tories are pissing off Tory voters in Chesham and elsewhere. Then I look at Versarien (VRS), Westminster Group (WSG) and at Bidstack (BIDS), breaking AIM Rules as it teeters on the edge. Oh, is that a Fat Lady I see gargling over there?
I start with a request to you all, to help me nail some villains. Please can you send THISOUTSIDEPAYWALLARTICLE to all your twitter, instagram, facebook etc accounts. I then look at the frauds Zoetic International (ZOE) and Supply@ME Capital (SYME), as well as Best of the Best (BOTB) which is not a fraud but is a stock that for three reasons I would not touch with a bargepole.
First it is Peter Brailey: My colleagues Tom Winnifrith and Gary Newman have provided opinion on the investment case of AsiaMet Resources (ARS) for some time. I think it is fair to say both see good potential upside. I remained on the fence watching. But I do see downside on the company’s social media strategy and I do not like it at all. It’s made me get off the fence – I will not invest until the company acts with a moral code I can agree with.
Well you heard it here first. Actually you did not.As you can see below this report comes from an impeccable source: twitter where Jack Dorsey et al ALWAYS act to censor fake news so you can rely on twitter to give you the truth. Perhaps that is why 26 folks liked this tweet and 1 has retweeted it. Sadly for those 28 losers ( the author, RT and likes) this is demonstrable fantasy.
As it happens I am never short of any stock I write about. I don’t short but why let the truth get in the way of a good story when you are moron? Welcome to a new account on twitter. Do you think that the wife of the moron responsible – for such folks are invariably male – is aware that he spends his time harassing and libelling journalists?
The big tech stocks have led the US markets ever higher and valuations as a whole for this subgroup look, to me, to be stretched. But I have been saying that for a while so you may choose to ignore what follows. However, while I have compared shorting such enterprises to standing in front of an oncoming express train waving your red flags, is there now a case for shorting Twitter? At $47.42, the market cap is $37.8 billion.
I start with Joshua’s Advent calendar and with some right-wing harridan on Twitter who reckons that suggesting Jesus was a refugee is anti-Jewish left-wing fake news. Then it is onto Falanx (FLX) en passant, Online Blockchain (OBC) and to Remote Monitored Systems (RMS), both of which have disgraced themselves yet again today.
Oh dear, as they say, these tweets did not age well after Fridays planning setback. Let’s hope these UK Oil & Gas (UKOG) ramping chumps did not spend all their “winnings” too early. The shares closed the week at 0.145p, down 32% on the day.
The deadwood press gives Ms Gilmarrtin an easy ride because she is a female CEO so will not call her out for bullshit and her convenient share trading. But, having no truck with such woke niceties being a gender blind meritocrat, let’s tell it as it is on the day Claire has announced that she is to step down as Trainline (TRN) CEO in six months time. For starters, her company has not delivered for investors, is in crisis and clearly never will deliver.
Can you beat this gem from the LSE Asylum Supply@ME Capital (SYME) board? I put it to you as I return from my Greek eco palace never having held a short position in Eurasia (EUA), as suggested below, that council house dwelling fantasist Andre01 is quite simply bonkers. Anyhow, in these fevered times can you spot a better example of lunacy, delusion or just sheer stupidity on a Bulletin Board or on twitter? Entries in the comments section below with a deadline of midnight on Sunday 23rd August. Now over to Andre01 who is bonkers:
Such are the stages of grief, those who have lost out seek folks to blame. Supply@ME Capital came to the market via an RTO at 0.68p on March 23 2020. Its prospectus was, at best, grotesquely misleading and, in my view, fraudulent, mistating both assets and the trading posution. Today we have published yet more shocking revelations and shares in the, almost insolvent, company languish at sub 0.05p to sell. They are worth 0p. So who is to blame for the losses suffered by morons like @Aimfatgreek who takes to twitter? Er…. you will never guess. Or maybe you have seen this play out before.
All that guff you read in the deadwood press about reallocating assets for this new era is just worthless tosh. One investor from the world of twitter explains his“genius” trading strategy – one which is almost identical to mine, except that I have also bought more, largely gold, shares from cash. Prepare for enlightenment:
Peterhouse is the broker, Chris Akers is on board, Dave Lenigas is too and now there is a paid for interview over at ShareTalk. It is almost the perfect cocktail. So what is the collective noun for a group of share rampers> A bluster? A promote? A festering turd? The stock here is Pires Investments (PIRI) and Big Dave has twitter diarrhoea.
The power of a twitter witch hunt by the woke mob should not be underestimated. It can, in the current climate, ruin lives and careers, erase history and crush businesses. It does not need to have any factual basis at all. In New York this morning, trending on twitter was #BoycottDominos. This will astound you.
I had a twitter spat today regarding the difference between Debt and Liabilities and was called a host of names and told I was stupid etc, etc. ZZZ. Twitter is not the best place to discuss stocks with the faithful who have a rudimentary understanding of balance sheets and throw around Investopedia definitions and accounting terms and consider that an argument. The company in question was Eve Sleep (EVE).
Last week I asked you to supply your idea of the most moronic post on the ADVFN, LSE or iii Asylums or on twitter. There were some good entries as you can see HERE but thanks to Aiminvestor for spotting this gem from the ADVFN asylum, Versarien (VRS) thread, natch, explaining why shorters should be in prison whatever they say but share rampers create wealth and should all be lauded whatever they say. Our BB of the week is “Scrutable”:
Covid 19 brings out the best in folks and the worst in folks. In that vein to lighten the mood I bring you a Bulletin Board Moron contest with a difference. Simply find the most idiotic post on the LSE, ADVFN, iii asylums or on twitter which must reference the virus and post it in the comments section below before midnight on Sunday 22 March. I challenge you to surpass this effort below, from Versarien (VRS) ramper superg on the ADVFN asylum who thinks short sellers want folks to die from the virus for their financial gain.
A week ago, I asked you for examples of sheer lunacy from the ADVFN, iii and LSE Asylums and there were indeed many fine examples provided as you can see HERE. However, anyone who uses the Nazis to make their point is generally someone who has completely lost the plot and thus there can be only one winner.
The Versarien (VRS) owning lunatic from the ADVFN Asylum cited below really does take paranoia to a new level. "infamy, infamy, they have all got it in for me". The only suerprise is that he does not mention the Jews or Mossad in his deranged post below. Anyhow can you find something even crazier on the ADVFN, iii or LSE asylums or on twitter before midnight on Sunday. If so, post it in the comments section below. But you have to beat the moronic post below:
This is an easy way for SP Angel to show it really is a serious Nomad. Does it think that Versarien (VRS) boss Neill Ricketts lied about share sales he made? If so will it issue a corrective RNS tomorrow and/or resign? Let me start with two tweets made by Ricketts after he dumped £153,750 of shares on 4 January 2018.
I asked you to nominate the moron making the most moronic comments on twitter or the LSE, ADVFN and iii asylums last week and there were many fine entries as you can see HERE. But the winner is clear and was spotted by me so I win the non prize. From the ADVFN Asylum, Versarien thread
Okay, I want to make Juicin happy so let us have another Bulletin Board Moron of the week contest. The deadline is midnight on Sunday 9th February and all you have to do is find another comment from twitter or the ADFVN, iii or LSE Asylums which is more moronic than this one from mavfav on the ADVFN asylum, Versarien (VRS) thread. Entries in the comments section below
Last night I was flamed on twitter by a host of Eurasia Mining (EUA) investors, a group who made your average Versarien (VRS) investor look like a true multi brained genius. I kid you not. One wanted me to hire him as a journalist as he had posted a few comments on BBs about Eurasia and that, he thought, qualified him. Another said I couldn;t be a proper journalist if I did not interview Eurasia, preferably by flying to the Indaba coke and hooker fest. And so it went on. The fact that Eurasia lies to investors ahead of fund raises & abuses market rules in private chatrooms was dismissed as irrelevant. Anyhow this is a hint as to where to seek out a winning entry in this week's contest. What is the most moronic post you can find on the ADVFN, iii or LSE Asylums or on twitter? Entries should be posted in the comments section below with a deadline of midnight on Sunday 26th.
On 9th August 2019, following comments here and a letter to the authorities, Versarien (VRS) was forced to put out a statement relating to a twitter post a day earlier by its boss Neill Ricketts. But it gets far worse as I can reveal today.
Last year I forced Versarien (VRS) to issue a clarifying RNS after Neill Ricketts made unverified and it seems untrue claims on twitter. Nomad Bobbie Hilliam at Canaccord read Ricketts the riot act and his twitter outpourings have been greatly diminished. But I can reveal that he has a new conduit on a private chat group on Discord. I doubt his Nomad or AIM Regulation are aware of it but thanks to Winnileaks they will be soon and will be horrified as I have a series of screenshots to share.
@THeAIMClown is long of Eurasia Mining (EUA) though he doesn't declare as such as he drones on ad nauseam about how cheap its shares are. But he demands to know on twitter of, the wrong, Gary Newman and myself if we, our families, friends or associated parties are short. Where to start?
News last week that digital marketing company, Mporium Group (MPM), had gone into administration shouldn’t have come as a complete surprise as it has been on a steep downwards trajectory for a number of years, but things did come to an end far more suddenly than anyone could have predicted.
I asked you a week ago to nominate your Bulletin Board Moron of the week from the iii, LSE and ADVFN Asylums or from twitter. There were some great entries which, in a normal week, would have won, as you can see HERE. But..
At the Woodford Patient Capital Trust (WPCT) AGM this year that scallywag Neil Woodford suggested that if I had any interest in beating the disease that would incdeed kill my dear Uncle Chris within weeks, that is to say cancer, I should be getting behind the joke company Rutherford Internationbal (RUTH) into which he had spunked vast amounts of other folks cash. This is a common meme among shameless promoters.
In the days before his Nomad ticked him off for his ludicrous tweets, Neill Ricketts of Versarien (VRS) would have been on twitter like a maniac 24 hours ahead of the AGM telling folks of all the good news in store. Well tomorrow, in a dingy side room at Gloucester Rugby Club the faithful will gather for an AGM where Neill has promised big news from China. But has he got any?
Anyone who owns shares in a company that tells demonstrable porkies, via RNS, is by definition a moron. And, after events this week, that clearly includes shareholders in Iconic Labs (ICON). But they do not like the demonstrable falings of Iconic being pointed out to them and a small band of lunatics have taken to twitter to attack me.
Ariadne Capital, the flagship vehicle of Julie Meyer may now be in administration but with the Insolvency Service and the FCA (as well as the IRS, HMRC and others) formally investigating Ms Lingerie on Expenses, whistleblowers should surely be cherished and protected? Er…
AIM regulation has acknowledged that it has received my formal requests to investigate lies told via RNS and the related party nest of snakes at Management Resource Solutions (MRS). At the centre of it all is 10% shareholder and noted market bad boy Leon Hogan. Now thanks to Winnileaks here is something else for regulators to consider...potential market abuse.
As you can see below, I am being attacked on twitter by someone purporting to be a shareholder in tecnically insolvent, red flag strewn, Management Resource Solutions (MRS). Is my troll really a convicted AIM fraudster?
I start with my big moral dilemna - listeners do you have any advice? Then I look at another day of shame for AIM ref Maestrano (MNO) and, more particularly, Immotion (IMMO). I look at Gama Aviation (GMAA), Numis (NUM), Finncrap (FCAP), Greatland (GGP) - another Dave Lenigas twitter ramp heading south - and at Avanti Communications (AVN)
Over the weekend I covered a waste-to-energy company called Eqtec (EQT) and surmised that it was going to need funding very soon, and this would most likely come in the form of a discounted equity issue.
Most material on twitter is unadulterated junk. But there is the odd gem. In the case of Tesla (TSLA) where the sell side analysts are all paid bulls, some of the best insight is on twitter. Like Lucian Miers, I regard this company as an accident, no an outright car crash, just waiting to happen. In that vein I bring you a most instructive series of tweets yesterday from @Polixines13 who knows his or her onions.
Of course David Lenigas is not on the board of Angus Energy (ANGS) and thus had no idea at all that a heavily discounted placing at 9p would be announced today. And thus his aggressive pumping of the stock on twitter last week, as you can see below, is just another remarkable coincidence. Just like this one ahead of the last UK Oil & Gas (UKOG) bailout placing. Big Dave.., an AIM casino leopard who never changes his spots.
As you know, since Versarien (VRS) supplies the Israeli Defence Forces and thus helps protect the only democracy in the Middle East, it can do no wrong in my eyes. Thus I note, with some concern, the increasingly odd reaction of boss Neil Ricketts as the shares continue to slide.
It never ceases to amaze me how much of a gamble some PIs will take with their money, even when the company itself has warned that it is in real trouble and it is almost impossible to see a way out of a bad situation which would result in a higher share price.
Having demanded we bring back this contest, once again, Juicin Drumroll failed to win last week but he came second and tried very hard as you can see HERE. So he is clearly desperate to win a semi naked photo of Britain's leading share blogger before lunchtime, Thirsty Paul Scott. So we will give him a fifth and final chance. Can anyone stop Juicin from winning this week? Okay here is the challenge for you all:
A flurry of activity last week saw shares in AIM-listed Minoan (MIN) propelled from 5p to almost 6p, with bulk of the rise on Friday. We know that news on the sale of the travel and leisure business is expected “imminently” and that news on the Cavo Sidero project in Crete could come soon. So does the market know something?
Having demanded we bring back this contest, once again, Juicin Drumroll failed to win last week and so for the fourth time the semi naked photo of Britain's top share blogger before lunchtime, thirsty Paul Scott, went elsewhere. Come on Juicin this contest is for you please try harder....if you don't win this week we are dropping it.
Having failed to ramp shares in UK Oil & Gas (UKOG) on the back of its utterly misleading RNS yesterday, an episode discussed at length here, Big Dave Lenigas tried to deflect attention by launching an amazing twitter rant at anti drilling protesters at Horse Hill. It started off as only semi-Musk but by the end, as you can see below, it was alarming.
Having demanded we bring back this contest, once again, Juicin Drumroll failed to win last week and so for the third time the semi naked photo of Britain's top share blogger before lunchtime, thirsty Paul Scott, went elsewhere. Come on Juicin this contest is for you please try harder....
Having demanded we bring back this contest, once again Juicin Drumroll fails to win with his nomination. Come on Juicin, we are doing this for you, please try harder. This week's winner of a semi naked photo of Britain's top share blogger, before lunchtime, Thirsty Paul Scott, is Daniel Victor. You can see all the entries HERE but Daniel's winning entry, from twitter, is from a Tesla loon:
Having demanded we bring back this contest, once again Juicin was beaten by Drunken Sailor in last week's contest as you can see HERE. Drunken now wins a second semi naked photo of Thirsty Paul Scott as his prize. Okay, for one more week I urge you all to post your entries to stop Drunken making it a hat-trick.
I trained as an oil analyst 27 years ago and have been writing about the sector ever since. Those morons who thought they knew better, as they filled their boots with Gulf Keystone (GKP), Xcite (XEL), Magnolia (MAGP), Andalas (ADL) and UK Oil & Gas (UKOG) always thought they had greater sector experise and on twitter came up with devestating responses to my hard analysis. Meet utter fucktard Donato Perretta, a UK Oil & Gas owning moron.
In today's podcast i look at tweets from Big Dave Lenigas which at every level would, in the US, see him heading for the cell next to the one being prepared for Tesla's Elon Musk. He just cannot substantiate what he is saying. I then look at Pantheon Resources (PANR), have a question about May 25 2019 and the Horse Hill Woodlarks walk, at Condor Gold (CNR), one of Jim Mellon's dogs, at Imaginatik (IMTK) at what price would I buy for Vin Murria? Finally there is a detailed look at Marechale Capital (MAC) a true AIM Casino POS. The goat milking video to which I refer is HERE and the latest Hovel photos are HERE
An RNS has to be signed off by a Nomad as fair and not misleading. UK Oil & Gas (UKOG) is sometimes forced to correct an RNS which it turns out was in fact misleading but there is at least some control. On twitter UK Oil & Gas says what it likes. So can you spot the difference?
This was the moment I had been thinking about for most of the 14 hours and 33 miles to keep me going but I could not have imagined the wonderful reception we would get at the Camp as you can see below.
As of last night a group of UK Oil & Gas (UKOG) twitter trolls have moved from attacking me over THIS ARTICLE to having a pop at Woodlarks over the walk on Saturday. Big Dave Lenigas is copied in on these tweets. I urge him to state clearly that attacking charities for the disabled is obscene and to make a donation HERE - as should any bearcast listener who has not done so already! I have recorded a special Woodlarks podcast today which you can listen to HERE. In this bearcast I ask what will make an overvalued market crack and look at Tern (TERN), Amur (AMC), Metals Exploration (MTL), Optibiotix (OPTI) and Uk Oil & Gas (UKOG) once more.
The UK Oil & Gas (UKOG) twitter feed, dutifully retweeted with added hype by David Lenigas, has so far reported three tankers leaving Horse Hill full of oil to be sent to the BP refinery. But is this proof that the Gatwick Gusher is a gusher? That is what the Bulletin Board Morons believe but they would believe almost anything. Let’s look at the tweets below and do some maths, not Leni-maths, real maths.
Anyone who follows the world of AIM on bulletin boards and Twitter will have noticed a lot of sudden excitement in Bellzone Mining (BZM) yesterday, with the share price rocketing and closing at around 0.9p, but unfortunately some were posting false news. Was that deliberate market abuse?
Okay despite all the harsh ( but arguably fair) things I have said about him, thirsty Paul Scott has just donated £50 to the Woodlarks sponsored walk charity appeal so I am going to be nice about him for a while unless he has a twitter meltdown. Chaka Khan. Chaka Khan. Cheeese. Anyhow surely you can follow Paul, watch this video HERE to see the great works Woodlarks does then donate a few quid HERE. In the podcast I take MySquar (MYSQ) apart, John Meyer at SP Angel needs to wake up, listen and get off his arse. I also look at Frontera (FRR) - bailout placing at 0.3p? - IDOX (IDOX) and Herencia (GER)
We have received an email from a chap called Ian Hislam who is now officially the Bullettin Board Moron of the Century. I know we still have 82 years to go but this Quindell (QPP) shareholder is surely unbeatable.
Oh dear it seems that the myriad of Ariadne companies just got that bit less complex with two more biting the dust for failure to submit accounts for the year to March 31 2017. So what were they hiding as they have now been formally struck off as you can see below...
Is @HemoGenyx the corporate account of HemoGenyx (HEMO)? Sadly PR poltroon Paul "Queenie" McManus of Walbrook and pouting brokerette Lucy Williams of Peterhouse have yet to return my calls as I pose this question. But since the lamentable Walbrook has tweeted directed to @HemoGenyx in the past they are either complete idiots (well they are) or that is all the confirmation one needs. Which makes the last two tweets on this account all the more outrageous. You can see them below. Bear in mind there has been no supporting RNS.
If devout Christian Julie Meyer MBE does not like FACT based articles about her and Ariadne Capital Limited ( now in administration) by City AM, The Evening Standard, The Times, ShareProphets ( an avalanche) and ex employees turned whistleblower such as John Galt posting on LinkedIn she could always send yet another fascist lawyers letter to them. But since all that has been written has been based on fact....
There is a new kid on the twitter block, @ariadnecapitals seems to ask a lot of questions of the Ariadne Group and Julie Meyer as you can see below. How long before Julie sends a lawyers' letter to get it shut down?
The current exuberant mood of the market has thrown up some great opportunities for bears as well as bulls on AIM recently. But for bears they are not for the faint hearted. Timing is particularly difficult when shorting rubbish and, particularly in these times, it pays to drip feed into a position and to maintain plenty of margin. Even then it is not unusual for a stock to double against you as happened to me recently with Online Blockchain (OBC)
There has been a fair amount of noise coming out of AIM-listed Ariana (AAU) lately. The back end of last year saw news from its self-styled Hot Gold Corridor and now the focus seems to be raising the flag for its Kiziltepe site, which has been in production for 9 months or so – and we are due the next quarterly report from that in the next week or two. Meanwhile the gold price has been strong of late, and Ariana’s share price has benefitted – although there is a way to go to get to the target of 2p.
As I noted earlier the fantasist Chris Oil has returned to twitter as a result of "exceptional demand". And as you can see he wants to take AIM back for the "good of honest investors". Great Chris. we wish you well and it is good to have someone as honest as you fighting the good fight. I see that I am not alone in holding that view. Last Thursday, according to twitter counter he had just 2,787 follower. Wind forward a few days...
The only suprise is that the market abuser Chris Oil has not rebranded as Chris BlockChain. But after an absence of well over a year from the public arena, the man who, modestly, compared himself to Warren Buffett is back! Hooray, his investment advice has always been a golden (counter) indicator.
A three part bearcast. In part one I look at Stratex (STI) where old managers are trying to oust new. l explain why the old boys are dreamers and should be told to foxtrot oscar. Then it is onto 1Spatial (SPA) which is behaving as if it is placing ahoy and I am almost certain that it is placing ahoy. Either way - avoid. Finally I waste time debating with a total fucktard on twitter. Folks like @Aimfatcat deserve poverty.
Has Roger Lawson of ShareSoc not heard of the Streisand Effect? Last week his lawyers sent a take-down letter to Audioboom about a bearcast that he asserted ( wrongly) was defamatory and libellous. Since the podcast is more than a year old and so was rarely listened to these days his act was pointless but, more importantly,, Audioboom had no legal liability as libel is time limited by statute. But Audioboom has no cojones just like it has no FD after the last chap resigned without any explanation given but with immediate effect the other day. We explained this tale of media cowardice in full HERE. However...
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.
Okay this really is the last one until September. But I have packed and am ready to travel and am bored, so here goes one more time. First up I discuss those who always blame others for their lack of profits, citing some twitter chum of the great Paul Scott. Then as Brent plunges through $45 I discuss why it is falling, where it will go next and if you should sell all your shares. The answer is a very selective no.
I looked at MySQUAR (MYSQ) recently commenting on the apparent conflict between the broker, Beaufort Securities, and its lender, Sandabel Capital (HERE). The good news is that the Sandabel deal has now come to an end. The less good news is that the average PI here has just been played like a fiddle with a classic pump and dump and it is worth taking a closer look.
Snap, the parent company of Snapchat Inc, floated yesterday on the New York Stock Exchange giving the company a closing valuation of just over $28 billion, after the shares surged 44% from the IPO price. It will also made its two founders, Evan Spiegel and Bobby Murphy, worth more than $5 billion each. The stock closed at $24.48, giving the company a market value of $28.3 billion. At one point it reached $26.05 and a market value of $29.1 billion. The company raised $3.4 billion at $17 a share after pricing its initial public offering making it the biggest tech float since 2014, when Alibaba shattered all records. It is almost three times the size of Twitter, bigger than both HP and CBS, and almost as big as EBay.
At the CES show this week Cloudtag (CTAG) will be launching its product and Amit Ben Haim will go on Proactive to promise that this will translate into hard sales by May. Oh, no that was 2016 and total sales were nil. But maybe it will be different this time eh? In honor of the morons who think it will be, please post in the comments section below the most idiotic comments on twitter or on Bulletin Boards from the first week of 2017. The deadline for entries is midnight on Sunday 8th January.
Of all the Cloudtag (CTAG) lunatics out there, Greg Brittan has to be the stupidest and also the most homophobic.It seems quite common among Cloudtag supporters on twitter to label someone "gay" as a term of abuse but Greg is obsessed about the subject. Almost every other tweet refers to a homosexual act, someones anus or a claim that someone else is gay.
Nasdaq listed GrubHub is one of many companies offering an app to allow you to order food from your local restaurants. Its boss Matt Maloney was a vocal supporter of Hillary Clinton and he has just committed commercial suicide for his company after telling Trump supporting workers to resign. #BoycottGrubHub is trending on twitter across the USA.
A late bearcast. Sorry. I was working on the new share tip. Away from that I look at just two stocks: twitter and how you monetise a troll? So what does that make the shares worth? Then onto Bushveld Minerals (BMN) and its placing today done by Belfort Securities. What does that tell you about AIM. There is a lot of PR horseshit flying about that placing as I point out. Warning: this bearcast contains bad language right from the start.
I again find myself asking about the high correlation between those who own shares in the crappiest frauds on AIM and those who think calling someone gay is a term of abuse. Whatever. Of more import I look at twitter a case study in bull market insanity. It will not be "different this time" and there is a case for saying that the shares are worth $0.
Hello Share Grinders. The falling pound always seems like a disaster. And It is to holidaymakers and students who are studying broad, like my daughter at the moment. But there is no need to be glum if you are a shareholders. There’s no doubt in my mind that the current soaraway Footsie is because we have brilliant companies over here. Not!!
I see the nutters on Twitter going on about as the share price of some company or other that ShareProphets investigates continues to rise, we're obviously idiots who don't know how to do the only important thing in life - fill yer boots.
Hello Share Swaddlers. There are some companies which don't appeal to me because I prefer businesses which do solid trade in things like engineering, transport, oil, mining, banking and the like. Some may caustically say: much good has it done me. And so I sometimes look for companies with a more esoteric feel (to me anyway) to try and redress the balance.
I am almost getting bored of this but to see poltroons get all their facts wrong and delight in their own stupidity gives me a vague feeling of superiority. Meanwhile I explain the latest farce that is entertaining various morons on twitter. I then look at Xtract Resources (XTR) and also, in detail, Rose Petroleum (ROSE).
I have spent the morning getting twitter grief for this article but the one polite twitter enquiry concerns BoxHill (BOX) and I answer that in this podcast as well as explaining why shares are both up and down since Brexit - it all depends how you look at it. I also cover Gulf Keystone (GKP), Bluebird Merchant Ventures (BMV), Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO) and Avanti Communications (AVN), I meant to talk about Bovis (BVS) but forgot. I shall try to remember tomorrow when I am down to make a gooseberry crumble. I shall report back on that over the weekend.
The sort of folk who not only believe every word that the war criminals Blair and Straw say about Iraq but are also lobbying the BBC to have Chris Evans appointed as the new presenter of Top Gear, are heavily concentrated on the shareholder list at Cloudtag (CTAG), an AIM listed company that is almost insolvent and whose valuation is a joke. Its shareholders are possibly the stupidest folks I have encountered on twitter with the possible exception of the England soccer team.
Given how a number of followers of lyin' Paul Scott went onto twitter last night to retweet or like tweets about me which were simply untrue I feel the need to publish a private email which, I fear, shows that the blogger wwas just making things up. I do so merely to protect my own reputation. It all stems from Cyan.
Today we have the sad news that fantasist and criminal Chris Oil is to quit twitter and blogging - more on that and highlights of the past two years of crime, lies & fantasy HERE. But as an au revoir as we are sure that the little twerp will be back, we have a new Chris Oil caption contest. Do your worst. Post your entries in the comments section below with a deadline of midnight on Sunday 22nd May
The petty criminal, market abuser and deluded fantasist Chris Oil has announced that he is to quit social media and to stop posting on his tedious blog. He fails to explain why but he has put out a pompous statement on his blog echoed in a tweet. I bring you highlights of Oil's two years on Social Media below but first his blog statement which reads:
Market abuser and criminal Chris Oil (as explained here) has now deleted the tweet below, perhaps on the advice of PR genius Steffi. But I suggest to you that it shows a man whose Walter Mitty condition is now becoming critical.
To his credit after a little final flourish last night Mr David Lenigas has gone all quiet on twitter in terms of character attacks on me and I shall reciprocate. Its a summer truce on twitter although I have a few articles to write. But I do worry, for his sake, that Mr Lenigas appears to have attracted some of the stupidest people on this planet to tweet nonsense which they - mistakenly - think might please him. Meet Kathryn Buckley.
David Lenigas has no shame. He yesterday told the most blatant 100% lie and smear on twitter, duly retweeted by a collection of morons - two of whom also posted comments underneath my article of yesterday here. It really is just rather sad to see a man move from shameless ramping to blatant lying and smearing about demonstrable facts. I fear Jabba is losing it. Poor man. Let;s start with his tweet
Gracie May Turner sent out her first tweet today Her best pal who she chats to Miriam Sharples also sent her first tweet today. Both have tweeted just five times. Both tweet on David Lenigas themes only and love shares in his companies. And both commit market abuse. I put it to you that both are bogus accounts. In response to the damning Horse Hill bombshell earlier, Gracie May tweets:
Before we turn to Lynda Duval who is a twitter diehard follower of David Lenigas par excellence, blowing him off by tweet on a daily basis, we go to last week's contest and an excellent winner. There were many fine entries as you can see HERE but the winner was a standout, a FastJet moron.
As ever there were some classic entries in last week's Bulletin Board Moron of the week contest with Drunken Sailor's own made up entry almost plausible as a real one. Had he not fessed up he'd have one the prize. The full raft of entries is HERE. But there is no moron like an old moron and no old moron like an MTV moron.
What on earth is the little criminal and market abuser Chris Oil up to? A twitter conversation just spotted by an eagle eyed reader from the welfare safari is recorded below and begs a question or 29 for the twerp.
The demise of Motive TV (MTV) & the Slater & Gordon (SGH) car crash were obvious triggers for some of the stupidest folks on this planet to talk shite on Bulletin Boards last week. On some threads (LSE Asylum Worthington WRN being a case in point) no trigger is needed for idiocy. There were numerous splendid entrants for last week's BBM of the week as you can see HERE but there could only be one winner.
On 19 November 2015 shares in Rare Earth Minerals were 0.8p and I warned that they were overvalued and that a placing was 100% inevitable - HERE. David Lenigas took to twitter and explicitly accused me of lying/being a troll/making it all up. Today the shares stand at 0.57p after a placing today at just 0.55p. So who is the liar now?
I start with Jimmy Savile as I have no apologies for running this yesterday.The BBC enquiry is just another establishment cover up and I explain why. Then it is onto investor denial at Petroceltic (PCI), not at Premaitha (NIPT), but at LGO Energy (LGO). I explain why Volex (VLX) is - and always will be - a shit company. Then I ask Rob Terry and Knob Park to unblock me on twitter as we should all have an online beer and popcorn party late on Sunday when Slater & Gordon (SGH) reports its results. I'll be up to do a special podcast and it will be fun. I hope you'll be joining me and that Rob will unblock me so he can take part too. There is also a brief comment on Nyota (NYO) where the piggery by a useless CEO is about to stop.
There is an RNS out from LGO Energy (LGO) which is being spun as a triumph. It is not. The shares are up 37% today (so just 90% down on the IPO) but I systematically expose the truly bad news LGO is fessing up to. David Lenigas is - as you can see - on twitter having a go at me. Like his tobacco smuggling pal Yusuf Kajee he plays on the suicide of my mother, implying again that I have mental health issues. I do not, but Mr Lenigas will see his soul burn in hell. He is shameless and all folks with any conscience will just refuse to have anything to do with him.
A lot of references today to yesterday's podcast covering cats and Andrew Monk's puzzles (see HERE). Today I answer the money puzzles and I am afraid there is very bad cat news indeed. So I really dont care about shares and it was not a good day for a moronic disciple of David Lenigas with 9 followers to have a go at me on twitter. As it happens I have a few things to say about Jabba who I will be nailing for good within six weeks. I also look at Nomad resignations, Auhua (ACE), DQ Entertainment (DQE), Milestone (MSG), Litebulb (LBB) and then at Magnolia (MAGP) and the wider career of Gavin Burnell.
Will today's suspension of shares in Motive TV (MTV) stop the morons who own this stock from dreaming about the golden tickets they own? Will administration stop them? Truly in the land of the morons these fellows are the uber-morons and so last week's contest winner came from among this flock of loons. You can see the full raft of delusion (with Worthington shareholders again featuring) HERE.
As ever the standard of entries to the Bulletin Board Moron & twitter moron of the week contest was exceptionally high last week. But there was a clear standout winner which may well be a slam dunk for the Bulletin Board Moron of the Year 2016 title as well. Can anyone beat this?
There could only be one winner of last week's Bulletin Board Moron of the week. I am not sure if it is the follower of Jabba who compares the fat Aussie share ramper to Gandhi or Jabba himself for thinking it is so profound that he retweeted it. Anyhow thanks to Britta for this gem of a tweet:
Some prat abused me on twitter so I checked out his feed and it contained the tweet below. Surely this guy has to be the biggest moron out there? He is - natch - a Glenwick (GWIK) shareholder but just how stupid is he? Anyhow this is my entry in this weeks contest - can you do better?
There is a campaign out there urging folks to block me on twitter. Jabba The Hutt started it. He said that anyone following me would no longer receive ramptastic and occassionally true tweets from the great David Lenigas as he would block them. But now a swathe of morons are urging folks to block me...
Every single Bulletin Board and twitter ramper seems to have a field day with AIM listed Glenwick (GWIK) over the past few weeks - it is the rampttastic cash shell of the moment. This stinks in oh so many ways and why can't these folks do basic maths?
I'm still pinching myself. Have I been at Tom Winnifrith's magic mushrooms again? Surely it cannot be that ShareProphets has anything in common with Rob Terry's Quob Park Estate? But in the wake of the admission by AIM Death Row in-mate Daniel Stewart (DAN) that it cannot find a new Nomad to replace Beaumont Cornish (and thus is scheduled for the execution chamber next Friday morning) we find that Quob has been tweeting out its approval:
Fat Aussie share ramper Jabba The Hutt is still new media obsessed and is apparently starting a series on his new blog on twitter, trolls and how the media are all such bad guys while Big Dave is left to carry the sword of truth and wield the shield of justice. His first article is a classic in self delusion and well, er...lies.
David Lenigas associate Yusuf Kajee of Afriag (AFRI) has spent the festive season smearing and trying to bribe me. He asked that I email questions. I did just that HERE. He has not answered. Instead he has again taken to twitter explicitly accusing me of having psychiatric issues caused by my mothers suicide. He tweeted just now:
Our Christmas website traffic was 40% up on last year and almost 200% higher than in 2013 and still we have not spent a cent on advertising. The LSE Asylum appears to have last week stopped folks from linking in to our articles - a clear demonstration of head in sand mentality - Chris Oil and others call for folks to boycott us but...
He learned from the master of twitter abuse David Lenigas. Do not answer mammoth questions raised over Christmas about tobacco smuggling & criminal enquiries underway (HERE) or why shares in Afriag MUST be suspended (HERE), instead Mr Yusuf Kajee has sent me more than one hundred abusive tweets making the most lurid of (unfounded) allegations. You can see some below.
This morning fat Aussie share ramper David Lenigas has, without warning, resigned from the boards of all five AIM Casino Companies on which he sat: Inspirit (INSP), Afriag (AFRI), Rare Earth Minerals (REM), Bacanora (BCN) and Evocutis (EVO). Why?
Jabba The Hutt is no longer on the board but he ramps shares in Octagonal (OCT) on twitter and his pal from Inspirit (INSP), John Gunn, runs the show. Piss poor interims were out yesterday but being Jabba related they contained a clear breach of AIM Rules - just what was it trying to hide?
Clearly the twitter addiction of David Lenigas is contagious as his Afriag (AFRI) colleague Yusuf Ismail Kajee is plaguing me on twitter with dozens of tweets, he is emailing and posting here in ShareProphets an invitation to South Africa. Where Yusuf fitted in at Lonrho and at Afriag in the world of tobacco is explained HERE. The original message reads:
Sometimes when the bad guys come under pressure it all gets too much for them and they panic and make a silly mistake. The Quindell "response to a blogger" statement actually gave proof of certain frauds. It was a blunder made in panic. And that brings us to David Lenigas who was so panicked by yesterday's Afriag (AFRI) bombshells and so effectively signed the AIM death warrant of the company with one single panicked tweet.
Jabba The Hutt knew I was running a piece today on Afriag (AFRI) so braced the lemmings, the few peasants who still believe him, with a twitter smear callimg me a drunken twirp (sic) and predicting I would produce a whole new set of "unfounded lies". I have never penned one lie on Jabba, all my damning criticisms are valid and today's Afriag article is no different in that respect, it is a bombshell. Just in case the former Lonrho chairman wants something else to tweet about here is some more.
Tomorrow I shall be examining the Afriag (AFRI) ramp of Friday in detail and Jabba The Hutt will not like that expose one iota. Ahead of that we have a picture of Mr Hutt preparing for a weekend shoot, an event in which a lot of dumb creatures will face wipeout. Anyone have a suitable caption for this picture of Jabba spending a rare monent away from his twitter account? All entries in the comments section below by midnight Sunday
I do not follow the twitter diarrhoea of Jabba The Hutt, partly because the fat Aussie share ramper blocked me and partly because his share ramping is just so tedious. But a kind reader alerts me to two tweets today which suggest that David Lenigas is quite simply cracking up.
There was a very interesting debate on Twitter recently about what drives the share price of smaller companies, such as on AIM. Opinion seemed to be split between sentiment and fundamentals, and I think it is very easy if you read Twitter, or the bulletin boards, to get the impression that the majority of people these days are only interested in trying to make their fortune overnight on low market cap, illiquid pump and dump junk!
Tired of acting for shite companies run by David Lenigas? I can’t blame Optiva Securities for feeling that way. Acting for Lenigas Cuba must be a bit of a drag. So why not set up your own shite company and float it. Welcome to Senterra Energy (SEN). Rope in a few mug punters like market abuser Chris Oil to pump it on twitter and off you go.
Hat tip to twitter follower @Terryfwit1 for flagging up a fascinating new section on the LGO Energy (LGO) website – Q&A. It displays clear signs that CEO Neil Ritson is trying to distance himself from David Lenigas over his share dealing i.e. selling)..
Fat Aussie share ramper David Lenigas says that he has a new job. Well I guess after the way he had car crashed so many companies on AIM plus ISDX lobster pot listed Lenigas Cuba that has to be a relief to the wider investment community. Apparently Big Dave (pictured left) is now a full time troll hunter. Well part time. He still has his main job of gushing twitter diarrhoea to keep him happy.
In today's podcast I start with my thoughts on the NHS. Guardian readers may wish to fast forward past that.Then it is onto assisting a twitter dickead (not David Lenigas) on Reach4Entertainment (R4E) and Nigel Wray. Then it is onto CDialogues (CDOG), blinkx (BLNX) and Havelock Europa (HVE). Finally a few more words on Gulf Keystone (GKP), Alba (ALBA) and Horse Hill.
I increasingly fear for the sanity of my friend David “I just love the smell of newly issued confetti” in the morning Lenigas. Instead of answering simple questions he just tweets increasingly deranged abuse. Have a butcher’s at this classic from last week.
The last tweet was September 23. But Quindell (QPP) fraudster Rob Terry and his Knob Park ponzi are again tweeting promising news next week. Might this be an update on his discussions with the Serious Fraud Office or from fraud to farce, news about AIM Casino POS Daniel Stewart (DAN)?
If this owner of shares in China Norfolk Auhua (ACE) is not living in a council house already he soon will be judging by his quite bonkers investment strategy. Are you up for a challenge? Can you supply a more obvious Bulletin Board Moron of the week? Yes the contest is back.
Last night Doc Holiday (@dds_doc_holiday) had his Twitter account suspended for the umpteenth time. It seems that certain free speech deniers have taken exception to Doc’s social media prowess at exposing crooks and cheats for what they are. Never afraid to deliver a 140-character broadside, Doc’s popularity on Twitter stems from his determination to speak the truth. It is shameful that Twitter repeatedly bans Doc at the behest of liars and market abusers. If you care about free speech and defending what is right, then help us support Doc now!
Once upon a Quindell (QPP) time the fraudster Rob Terry seemed to be suffering from twitter diarrhoea. But for the past six weeks his new mouthpiece, the Quob Park Ponzi scheme has been almost silent. One might almost suspect that on legal advice the fraudster was being advised to say schtum as he awaits arrest by the Serious Fraud Office. He should not have to wait long. But, meanwhile, what about his discussions with Daniel Stewart (DAN)?
Play the man not the ball. That is the way of fat Aussie share ramper David "I love the smell of newly issued confetti in the morning" Lenigas. Big Dave has again blocked me on twitter so I cannot see his deranged rants and blatant ramps. But a kind reader has supplied me with today's attack on this website even before we commented on the latest ramperoonie nonsense from UK Oil & Gas (UKOG) - HERE.
