BREAKING: The BBC fesses up to misleading over Scotgold pump and dump now AIM Regulation needs to step in

By Tom Winnifrith, the Sheriff of AIM | Friday 7 July 2023

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.

I have noted before how one valiant reader complained to the wretched BBC about its coverage of Scotgold (SGZ) earlier this year ( January 30) – reports which were clearly false caused the share price to spike to 70p allowing a bailout placing at just 40p to go ahead. Amazingly the BBC has now formally accepted that it did mislead its viewers, thus costing many of them a good few quid. But it gets worse.
