Notes from Underground – Most read articles for the week ending 26 August

By Darren Atwater | Sunday 27 August 2023


Another week gone and here are the most read and most listened-to articles and Bearcasts on ShareProphets over the past seven days. The most read non-Quiz, non-Tom article last week is by Lucien Miers, Crunch Time for the Tingo Three, at No 2 or No 7 including Bearcasts.

The most read ShareProphets stories this week were:

  1. Matt Moulding of THG really is a prize prick as he hits out at Gabriel Grego & the bear community
    I guess if I had floated a business at a grossly inflated 500p share price less than three years ago, getting well paid brokers to overlook shocking corporate governance and a mad valuation I would be pissed off with bears who pointed this out and have coined it in as the shares have crashed to just 90p. Matt Moulding of THG (THG) cashed in to the tune of hundreds of millions of pounds in that September 2020 IPO and has no shame.

  2. Crunch Time for the Tingo Three
    Having missed its Q2 earnings release date on 10th August, brazen fraud Tingo Group (NASDAQ:TIO) has undertaken to file on 21st along with producing an independent report commissioned by its non-executive directors into the serious allegations made against it in June by Hindenburg Research.

  3. EXPLOSIVE DOSSIER: RegTech Open Project Plc - a £60m IPO CON from the Supply@ME stable the FCA thinks is fine and dandy
    Yesterday the FCA approved the Prospectus for RegTech Open Project Plc (RTOP) so that it can list on the Standard List with a £60 million valuation, enriching Alessandro Zamboni of the Supply@ME Capital (SYME) fraud to the tune of £21 million. This detailed dossier explains why the FCA should hang its head in shame. This is a disgrace and shows that the Standard List regulator is just not fit for purpose.

  4. Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Has WH Ireland dumped its Alien Metals shares and if not why not?
    I start with apologies and explanations on 2 Bearcasts appearing later than they should. Then onto Alien Metals (UFO), WH Ireland (WHI), Ashington Innovations (ASHI) and another bombshell due this weekend, BlueJay Mining (JAY) and finally Eurasia Mining (EUA) and Jubilee Metals (JLP)

  5. Aviva shares are so much more attractive than the average bond, but…
    Home insurance is very boring…but rather important. I know some people choose not to bother, but I think this is very foolish. Sadly, home insurance is not particularly cheap. My (until recently) supplier had offered a good product at a sensible price, but pushed the proposed cost up over 30% and was not even willing to negotiate. Having asked a Welsh opera singer for a bit of advice (as you do), I found a more sensible deal. And all this waffle about my very boring personal home economics, brings me to the FTSE 100 giant Aviva (AV.) ...

  6. Why I'm considering switching my Gulf Keystone holding for Genel instead
    Gulf Keystone Petroleum (GKP) and Genel Energy (GENL) are good examples of what can happen when geo-political factors come into play and highlight why you always need to consider those risks.

  7. Bluebird Merchant Ventures – Richard Jennings clearing shares overhang, risk/reward STRONG BUY
    Bluebird Merchant Ventures (BMV) has announced that Catalyse Capital Ltd has reached an agreement to acquire the 122.5 million shares in Bluebird held by Southern Gold (ASX - SAU), emphasising that this should “remove a significant perceived 'overhang' in the trading of Bluebird's shares and allow investors to focus on the inherent value of the three-project portfolio”. What of a current share price response up to a 0.80p offer price?

  8. BREAKING: c/o Winnileaks - How Jason Drummond tried to stop folks knowing about ShareProphets exposes!
    As my investigations into Ashington Innovations (ASHI) intensify ore and more folks are coming forward. I have an absolute bombshell this weekend which, surely, even the FCA must act upon. Today a source has contacted me via Winnileaks to say how Ashington co-founder Jason Drummond used to publicly say how much he hated our numerous exposes of his antics here on ShareProphets. As you can see below, Drummond was desperate to hide the dirty washing we exposed.

  9. Email to Andrew Monk: How can you sink this low, you are morally bankrupt!
    I have highlighted the numerous red flags and dodgy deals that make no sense relating to Standard List Zamaz (ZAMZ) on this website numerous times. Its main man Dominic White made millions cashing out of the fraud Supply@ME Capital (SYME) which he helped bring to the market. Today Zamaz has announced that it has a new adviser. Which firm is so desperate that it will act for Zamaz?

  10.  Turner Pope just cannot learn from its past errors – pathetic Powerhouse placing
    If I had any sympathy for the Mitchell Brothers, the chaps running Turner Pope, it was on the basis that it was on the basis that they had learned from their past errors and were, enjoying a Damascene Conversion. Today came evidence that the Mitchells have learned nothing and they thus deserve the financial ruin heading their way.

The most-listened to Bearcasts this week were:

  1. Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: I know its the 13th really
    Apologies for the introduction, long covid. In today's podcast I discuss why what Gary or I say about a given stock does not matter, in the long run what matters is cash generation or lack of it. I discuss what Stuart Ashman and Steve O'Hara said about Gary's bear piece yesterday. I discuss house prices. And I flag up that there are now just 12 tickets left for Sharestock so if you want to come book now HERE

  2. Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Canadian Overseas deliberately deceives investors and what is it hiding now?
    In today's Bearcast I discuss: Marks & Spencer (MKS) and John Lewis, Amur Minerals (AMC), Ben's Creek (BEN) - a zero in waiting - Optibiotix (OPTI), Skinbiotherapeutics (SBTX, Tingo (TIO), Canadian Overseas Petroleum (COPL) and Sharestock where there are just 11 seats left for September 23 - you can book HERE 

  3. Tom Winnifrith Bearcast, after sacking Gary Newman I must fire Darren, this is a monstrous lapse of judgement
    I discuss Gary's sacking then a monstrous lapse of judgement from Darren which surely merits a P45. Then the ouzo moments regarding Asimilar (ASLR) and Dev Clever (DEV) and who should be going to jail if the FCA was not so ffing useless. Finally, we now have just 11 tickets left for ShareStock so if you want one book now HERE

  4. Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: injecting allogeneic immunomodulatory progenitor cells into the myocardium of patients who were having coronary by-pass grafting.
    I start with a travel tale that has my good pal the Euroloon Jonathan Price at last seeing a benefit of Brexit. Then a schoolboy error from me today. How many folks put 2+2 together to make 25 re trades in Skinbiotherapeutics (SBTX) today. I chat with Steve O'Hara of Optibiotix ( OPTI). I have some light reading for the FCA, SI Capital and Ashington Innovations (ASHI) HERE which should sink its planned RTO. Finally, there are now just 9 tickets left for ShareStock on 23 September and you can book them HERE

  5. Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: for Catriona & Matthew's Dog: FECK YOU BILL GATES
    I start with IT issues which see the Kerim Sener interview delayed. My language and mood is foul. In the podcast I discuss Ariana resources (AAU), Canadian Overseas Petroleum (COPL), Verditek (VDTK) and, in some detail, Tern (TERN), predicted NAV by Christmas sub 3p, target price by the start of 2024, 2p.

  6. Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Joshua in the room otherwise Catriona & Matthew's Dog would love my words on EasyJet
    Joshua is here as I record from Athens which tempers my language. I discuss our travel experience and then it is onto tern (TERN), Hydrogen Utopia (HUI) and the scandal at Ashington innovations (ASHI), where the FCA must surely wade in. Finally I apologise on behalf of Darren, the latest video is working now HERE

  7. Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: No more Lionesses bollocks economics & be honest with Darren about this website
    I am at the Greek hovel but with no water or phone as I explain in this podcast. However it is lovely and a first swim beckons. Before that a few words on the fake maths written about the Lionesses and then I ask you to help me and Darren with your honest comments about the IT on this website and also the editorial content. Please be honest in the comments section below.
