Notes from Underground – Most read articles for the week ending 13 April

By Darren Atwater | Sunday 14 April 2024


Here are the most read articles and the most listened-to Bearcasts over the past seven days. The most read non-Tom article last week is Nigel Somerville with Gold Stocks – My Take On Why They’ve Still Got A Long Way To Go at No 3 or No 11 including Bearcasts. 

The most-read ShareProphets articles this week were:

  1. WOW and Kefi you really are a twit
    Almost every day someone describing themselves as WOW, a reader of this website, sends me an hostile or demanding email about Kefi Gold & Copper (KEFI). I now put them in spam but I bring you an idea of the tone with today’s missive.

  2. Speaker line up almost there – it’s time to book your seats at Sharestock 2024 on September 7, now almost 50% sold out
    As of today just under half the seats for the third Sharestock event on 7 September are now booked. If you have been before you know why but this year’s event will be bigger and better than any yet. Here is why you should make sure you have a seat HERE today.

  3. Gold Stocks – My Take On Why They’ve Still Got A Long Way To Go
    Tom Winnifrith discussed why Gold stocks are not even higher in yesterday’s Bearcast and set some possible price targets. I thought I would do the same, from my perspective as a Gold-loon. We have differing portfolios, but some shares are the same – time will tell who might be right!

  4. Photo Article: the proof that Chill Brands MUST be sitting on bad news about WH Smith
    Chill Brands (CHLL) has been very cagey about when its products were set to be sold in 150 of the busiest WH Smith stores. Thanks to a fan of the stock who has also tweeted some nice things about me, here is a hint. The stock was in the Gatwick Airport branch on 5 January, as you can see below. That is a bombshell.

  5. Pete Brailey says short the £400m Pantheon ramp
    He was too bust smoking 140 cigarettes yesterday to comment during the working day on the big spike on the Pantheon Resources (PANR) share price which I flagged up as spurious in bearcast HERE. But Peter has now sent over his thoughts which are below.

  6. BREAKING: FCA slams Neil Wooodford – worse to come for the disgraced fund manager we exposed
    Neil Woodford, the “man who made Middle England Rich” until he fecked it all up, exposed by this website, has been served with a warning notice by the Financial Conduct Authority today, after only five years of investigations. But there could be worse to come for Neil.

  7. Explaining free speech with a cartoon for the 10th time for defamatory fantastist and liar Magna Carta
    For the 10th time - the first perhaps for our many new readers - I feel the need to explain what free speech really means. I do this for Magna Carta , a poster here, who seems to think that we are obliged to approve & publish his comments which are defamatory and in some cases just so unpleasant that I do wonder for his twisted little mind. Not bold enough to post in his own name and a man proven to have lied, inter alia, about attending Sharestock and about loss making spread bets, Magna posts several times each day about myself and Kefi Gold & Copper (KEFI). He is obsessive.

  8. Clem Chambers trough-fest Online Blockchain Annual Report finally surfaces and it’s a hoot
    Thrown off the AIM sewer on January 5 2024 after its Nomad, London’s worst, Roland “fatty” Cornish quit, Online Blockchain (OBC) has finally, yesterday, filed its annual report for the year to June 30th 2023. You really could not make it up. Awarding himself a 25% pay rise, boss Clem Chambers is a laugh a minute. He starts off with Fatty’s Resignation. Natch it was not Clem’s fault.

  9. BREAKING: Has Ben's Creek sacked all bar 5 of its staff? Statement needed asap
    On the Ben's Creek (BEN) Telegram Group, a hang out for obsessed lunatics in abject denial, screenshots have appeared from Facebook. I bring you the shots below. These appear to be from Ben's employees claiming that nearly all staff have been laid off by the drowning in debt, loss making company. The shares should already have been suspended pending clarification as I noted HERE. Now an RNS is needed ASAP and surely a suspension looms? 

  10. GOTCHA! Ben’s Creek ‘fesses up that it's firing nearly all its workers! Does advisor Allenby give a FF about market rules
    Before midnight on Wednesday I published an article stating that drowning in debt and loss making Ben’s Creek (BEN) had fired all bar 5 of its workers and, being a nice guy, told Guy and Nick at Ben’s advisor Allenby about this at once. Today comes the ‘fess but why the delay Allenby?

The most-listened to Bearcasts this week were:

  1. Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Should I care if Shell goes to America?
    I do not own the shares. A 3.82% yield for an oil major does not float my boat. But if I was a shareholder I would not object. What does this say about the wider market and UK PLC? I discuss naivete from Labour on tax, a lesson from Uncle Chris on how to agree to disagree with crazed Brian Basham, Procook (PROC), Online Blockchain (OBC), Tern (TERN), Ben's Creek (BEN) and ouzo man and Pantheon Resources (PANR)

  2. Tom Winifrith Bearcast: Malcolm is 'avin' a Turkish if he thinks Lloyds is worth a quid
    I disagree with Malcolm Stacey on buying shares in Lloyds Bank (LLOY) and explain why.

  3. Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: whataboutery
    I did a silly thing today. I start with Whataboutery, tax dodging Angela Raynor and twitter. Then Lok 'n' Store (LOK), Ben's Creek (BEN), Distil (DIS), Powerhouse Energy (PHE), BSF Enterprises (BSFA) and the silky words of Colin Bird on placings.

  4. Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: the price of a loaf of bread was 26p in 1980 & I bet teachers were lazy then too
    In today's bearcast I discuss lazy teachers, share buybacks, Lloyds (LLOY), Victoria (VCP), gold and bread prices annd signs of a top in gold stocks and what my target is for Jubilee Metals (JLP). Then there is Ben's Creek (BEN) where the 0p target is perhaps just days away. Let the recriminations begin...

  5. Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Petrofac is free money for the bears and does anyone advising Tern have any conscience?
    In today's podcast I discuss Kefi Gold & Copper (KEFI), Nostra Terra Oil & Gas (NTOG) and "being saved" by Jesus or Matt Lofgran, Tern (TERN), Petrofac (PFC) & Ben's Creek (BEN) and a day of shame for Allenby Capital.

  6. Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: IQE is still a quarter of a billion sell
    I discuss the delisting of ETX (ETX). Should you hold the shares and can AIM now be saved. I look at the issue of re-orders (or lack of them) at Futura Medical (FUM) and Chill Brands (CHLL). I comment on Tern (TERN) and , in depth, IQE (IQE)

  7. Tom Winnifrith Bonus Bearcast: thoughts on the £12.5m bailout of Revolution Bars at just 1p
    In this bonus bearcast I look at where next for Revolution (RBG) and also Nightcap (NGHT), macro trends in hospitality and this final vindication for me in my debate with thirsty Paul Scott on how the minimum wage destroys jobs.

  8. Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Wrexham up and my new least favourite football team, the gender pay gap, gold and bitcoinI start with football. Celebrations in Wrexham and joy as my new least favourite side look set for the drop. Then the gender pay gap, gold and bitcoin. Footnote: Iran attacks Israel, bitcoin loses $8,000 in minutes, my store of value point made at once.
