Uru Metals – shares ramped up on US OTC Spoof, John Zorbas is 'avin' a Turkish

By Tom Winnifrith, the Sheriff of AIM | Wednesday 19 January 2022

Disclosure: I have no positions in any stocks mentioned, and no plans to initiate any positions within the next 72 hours. I wrote this article myself, and it expresses my own opinions. I am not receiving compensation for it (other than from ShareProphets). I have no business relationship with any company whose stock is mentioned in this article.

Luckily those attracted to owning shares in joke John Zorbas company URU Metals (URU) have the collective IQ of a cheese sandwich so they fell for the spoof. But spoof it is. As Nigel pointed out when Uru snuck out dire results on New Year’s Eve, Uru is almost certainly running on vapours with a death spiral to convert outstanding debt kicking in at 85p. Thus, a share price of 200p (up 17% on the spoof) is insane.
