On Friday afternoon and throughout the weekend folks from the Upland Resources (UPL) ramping community, a group almost as pointless as Queers for Palestine, were tweeting that Upland had received a 14p bid approach but was going to reject it as being too low. This morning Upland said that as a result of speculation it was forced to confirm this was all true. That the shares are just 6.25p tells you Mr. Market smells a rat. The FCA and the Takeover panel should be all over this and shorters should be adding to their short as fast as possible.
