Notes from Underground – Most read articles for the week ending 11 November

By Darren Atwater | Sunday 12 November 2023


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 Steve Moore, plc – notes “sales growth” and medium and long-term “potential”…though what about the bottom-line currently?! at No 3 or No 10 including Bearcasts.

The most read ShareProphets stories this week were:

  1. Superdry – shareholder approval for South Asian IP disposal, but how much is this really set to help a “turnaround plan”?
    Fashion brand company Superdry (SDRY) “is pleased to announce… approval of proposed disposal by shareholder vote”. This is for the proposed disposal of its intellectual property assets in India, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh, and what of a current 40.75p share price in response?

  2. Technology Minerals – now about that legal action over the unpaid £391,000
    Oddly enough Technology Minerals (TM1) – the company that stinks with numerous links to the fraudster Chris Cleverly of Tingo (US:TIO) infamy – has not mentioned this huge legal threat. I do hope it has flagged this up with the FCA as it struggles to get an RTO prospectus approved. I bet it has not.

  3. plc – notes “sales growth” and medium and long-term “potential”…though what about the bottom-line currently?!
    Previously writing on arts and crafts, stationery, toys and books retailer TheWorks (WRKS), towards the end of August with the shares falling below 30p I concluded to continue to avoid ahead of half-year detail including with costs and consumer spending headwinds. The shares most recently closed at 40p…but what of them currently down to 28.4p on the back of a “half-year trading update”?

  4. BREAKING: Boohoo – undercover BBC reporter discovers it is up to no good again, Matt Earl sticks in the knife
    Last week the Daily Telegraph reported that investors were suing Boohoo (BOO) over the allegations of modern-day slavery. Today another bombshell lands c/o the BBC’s Panorama team who planted an undercover reporter, Emma Lowther, with the company.

  5. BREAKING: Yet More ouzo for the Sheriff! The Fat Lady is heading to Jockland for a gig at Scotgold
    Oh dear, oh dear, pity all those deep fried Mars bar munching viewers of BBC Scotland and the rapidly dwindling band of listeners to Radio 4’s Today programme suckered into buying shares in Scotgold (SGZ) by its fake news. Pity all those Bulletin Board Morons who knew better than the Sheriff as I flagged up red flag after red flag and published damning internal emails sent to Winnileaks. My full, and excellent coverage is HERE. Today Scotgold has essentially admitted that the game is up.

  6. Folks will call me sexist for saying this but Sosandar’s joint CEO Julie Lavington sounds very, very silly
    Ms. Lavington is quoted in the ghastly Mail on Sunday as saying “Our share price is the same as when we turned over £1 million – except now we're turning over £40 million. It's frustrating.”. Where to start? It must be rather worrying for those still owning these shares that she has such an appalling grasp of how markets work. It is enough to turn a man to drink.

  7. Sarah Willingham's NightCap – silence is violence ( for the share price)
    In 2022 Nightcap (NGHT) announced on 3 November that its full year results to July 2 would be published on 10 November and they were. A week’s notice was given. We are now on November 6th and there has been no announcement of when results will be out this year. Good news travels fast, bad news is delayed. So, what’s afoot, a source well acquainted with the company has contacted me.

  8. October AIM statistics – another disaster and a £40 billion question
    The numbers do not tell a lie and are truly dreadful. In October nine companies left the casino and zero joined. That makes it the worst month of a dreadful year to date which has seen 59 departures and just 12 arrivals. The number of companies on the sewer was 769 at the end of the month, the lowest since early 2003. But there is a more damning statistic.

  9. Has Justin the Clown's Vox markets gone bust yet? Annual results suggest its only a matter of time
    A reader takes me to task for failing to comment on the annual report of Vox Markets, the company that takes payments from shite companies to pump their worthless shares, often using the services of Justin the Clown. The annual report covers an extended 16 month period to 31 December 2022 and came out on September 26. I can but apologise for not picking up on this earlier.

  10. The View From The Montana Log-Cabin As Gold Tests $2,000
    Gold closed the week at $1992 – a shade below the psychologically important $2,000, having been a shade above it last week. The Fed held interest rates, as did the useless Andrew Bailey’s Bank of England, and US Treasury yields retreated.

The most-listened to Bearcasts this week were:

  1. Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: A tale of two wars and more nonsense from Malcolm
    Many folks have not liked what I have written about the Russia Ukraine war but it looks very much as if my prediction on its outcome is coming true and I assess what that means for shares and oil. Then to the Hamas Israel war and I make a couple of calls on how that will go and what that means for gold, oil and Israeli shares. Then onto Malcolm on ethical investing and why he is wrong to ignore bottom up analysis as he hops on another bandwagon.

  2. Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: A new book by Tom Winnifrith out today
    I discuss that book which you may find hard to read then Versarien (VRS), Tern (TERN), Celadon (CEL), Tingo (TIO) and, in detail, another Cleverly stock going to ZERO, Technology Minerals (TM1).

  3. Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Alison Rose is still a greedy pig, chatting to O'Hara & more
    In today's podcast I look at NatWest Group (NWG), Optibiotix (OPTI), Technology Minerals (TM1), Argentex (AGFX) and have a new angle to the Upland resources (UPL) scandal.

  4. Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Ben's Creek pregnant with a profits warning and a financing crisis
    In today's Bearcast I cover Predator Oil & Gas (PRD), Ben's Creek (BEN), NightCap (NGHT), Naked Wine (WINE), WeWork, Scotgold (SGZ) and Actual Experience (ACT).

  5. Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Eurasia, Boohoo, Vast and Verditek - all very possible zeros but when?
    In today's podcast I start with another couple of thoughts on the war in Ukraine and why a peace deal could see Eurasia Mining (EUA) have to 'fess as to the lack of any real bidder and go to zero. I also look at a raft of other possible zeros discussing the reasons why for Verditek (VDTK) where my analysis suggests it is already essentially insolvent, Tintra (TNT), Mosman Oil & Gas (MSMN) and (BOO). I also comment on the pre bailout pump at Guild ESports (GILD) - oh and a new speaker at ShareStock has been announced HERE.

  6. Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: How many times can the pompous prick Sir Martin Sorrell be allowed to screw it up?In today's podcast I discuss an accumulator bet on three profits warnings before Christmas or 4 before St Valentine's Day. I look at S4 Capita (SFOR) run by the pompous prick of the year 2010-23, Argontex (AGFX) and the disaster that is Falanx (FCS)
