Notes from Underground – Most read articles for the week ending 29 June

By Darren Atwater | Sunday 30 June 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 by Steve Moore, with Microsaic Systems – a “pleased to announce” ‘company update’. Er, what about the upcoming shares suspension?! at No 3 or No 8 including Bearcasts. 

The most-read ShareProphets articles this week were:

  1. Castings – strong full-year results, but what about the outlook; bank gains?
    Iron castings and machining company Castings (CGS) has announced results for its year ended 31st March 2024 and that it “will continue to develop opportunities with existing customers in areas such as the electrification of lighter trucks and build relationships in other markets such as wind energy, agriculture and in the US”. The share price is 372p in response so what to do?

  2. BREAKING EXPOSE: Kisbey-Green “resigns” from Kazera Global but what about the missing $80,000
    Those, like Andrew Monk, who follow Caracal Gold (GCAT) will be familiar with the way Gerard Kisbey-Green and Robbie McCrae work. As we saw with Amala Foods (DISH) the dynamic duo will happily borrow money from another PLC and then just not pay it back. How Mr. Monk and VSA Capital (VSA), where I am an unwitting shareholder, are prepared to act for such scallywags defies belief. Now I can expose that the two rogues have been at it again as Kisbey-Green has “resigned” from Kazera Global (KZG) as legals kick off.

  3. Microsaic Systems – a “pleased to announce” ‘company update’. Er, what about the upcoming shares suspension?!
    Microsaic Systems (MSYS) has issued a “Company Update” announcement including that it “is pleased to announce… it has now received a research and development tax credit from HMRC… and… is actively building up partnerships and joint ventures to support its commercial objectives to deliver a total solution for water testing and safety”. How good are these developments from a current 1.125p share price?

  4. Which PR genius wrote this?
    A simple question, the words below were written without irony by a well known PR person/promoter of penny share shit. So who was it? Guesses in the comments section below:

  5. OptiBiotix Health – further positive Slimbiome study results, Strong Buy
    OptiBiotix Health (OPTI) has issued a “Slimbiome study results”-titled announcement including that latest results from human studies carried out at Roehampton University “continue to prove the efficacy of Slimbiome to reduce hunger and food cravings which changes the amount and type of food people eat leading to sustainable weight management”. Following a chat with OptiBiotix Chief Executive Stephen O’Hara, the following is why such studies are potentially highly significant.

  6. GOTCHA! Nightcap trading warning, fund raise fails and to delist from AIM – but some bad news hidden
    Sarah Willingham needs to record another video for her staffers saying that folks like me who called her and Nightcap (NGHT) out are just jealous of her success or do a PR puff piece in the deadwood press saying how she makes her best management decisions while on a meditative walk. Jog on Sarah, today is a disaster. Told y’all.

  7. Tribe Technology – argues a “strong support” fundraise. Er, is it?!
    Previously writing on autonomous mining equipment company Tribe Technology (TRYB), in March with the shares at 6.25p I cautioned “First generation autonomous drill rig update”, attempted ramptastic ahead of interims?. What of now a “£1.41 million Fundraise” announcement, and the shares currently further down to 4.25p to give a prospective £10.2 million market capitalisation?

  8. Oxford Metrics – interims, remains a balance sheet-supported BUY
    ‘Smart sensing and software’ company Oxford Metrics (OMG) has announced results for its half-year ended 31st March 2024 and that it “enters the second half with >90% visibility of full year revenues and with a growing pipeline”. is that good news factored in to a c100p share price?

  9. Ariana – FY23 Results And Technological Advance
    AIM-listed Gold producer Ariana Resources (AAU) released its full-year numbers for calendar 2023 this morning, along with an interesting announcement concerning the use of a new “detectORE” technology. Mr Market seems unimpressed, but I think Mr Market is just wrong.

  10. Eco Buildings – shares up as factory “fully automated and operational”, but much further upside potential: BUY
    Modular housing group Eco Buildings (ECOB) has announced that it has now achieved fully automated production at its Albanian facility, improving current revenue and profit projections and into the future.

The most listened-to Bearcasts this week were:

  1. Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Ouzo on La Willingham day but what about piss poor Optibiotix numbers?
    Today's bearcast is long. So there are delays uploading it. It starts with Nightcap (NGHT) then covers Regtech Open (RTOP), Supply@ME Capital (SYME), Eight Capital Partners (ECP), Miriad (MIRI), Guild ESports (GILD) and Optibiotix (OPTI).

  2. Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Rishi Sunak's old school (Winchester) shows in a letter how Labour's VAT on public school sums do not add up
    I start with a letter I have in front of me. Then it is onto the thesis that litigation will stop companies telling porkies. It won't. It will just make lawyers even richer. Then Bushveld Minerals (BMN) and Ariana (AAU) with results that don't impress me that much but I am not selling my shares and explain why.

  3. Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: When, not if, will owning a UK house become THE WORST investment you can make?
    I start with a note on how I live my life for in house nutter Magna Carta. the and another reason to be a bear, then finally UK house prices, population, net migration and a political class GroupThink getting it all wrong again.

  4. Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: 2 hours of my life certainly not wasted at the AGM of a fraud
    In today's podcast I look at Supply@ME Capital (SYME) and some shocking AGM revelations, ECO Buildings (ECOB), Bluebird Merchant Ventures (BMV), Chapel Down (CDGP) and Technology Minerals (TM1), target price 0p.

  5. Tom Winnifrith bonus bearcast: 30% of Ariana shareholders vote to bring on suicide
    I was told that those with a death wish would sink the Dokwe deal at yesterday's Ariana Resources (AAU) GM. they did not but 30% of votes cast were to reject the goose that will lay golden eggs. So what next? Will as they threaten, they all sell? I almost hope so.

  6. TomWinnifrith Bearcast: Guess the June 30 failures & share suspensions as Evil Banksta fails to spot his fellow club member
    I start with guess the shameless PR huckster contest which Evil Banksta failed in.
    Then to Kibo Energy (KIBO) where AIM Regulation must surely step in. I ask you to suggest other companies whose shares will be suspended on July 1 in the comments section below. I look at Chill Brands (CHLL) where bad news surely cannot be delayed any more, at Eurasia Mining (EUA) where a collapse within weeks looks likely, TrakM8 (TRAK) and then at Great Western Mining (GWMO), a pointless POS. Finally as I head to mow a lawn, if you are coming to, probably the last, ShareStock on 7 September please book HERE

  7. Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: the Greeks know how to deal with fraudsters, jail time for the Folli Follie gang
    I start with another bin collection failure in broken Britain. Then it is Folli Follie where I played my part and where, after 9 years, the gang behind this 1 billion Euro fraud have been sentenced. Then its Tern (TERN) and Moonpig (MOON) where I am doing a volte face. 

  8. Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: as Olaf turns 22, two dinosaurs discuss market lack of integrity as opposed to rule breaking on AIM as the Mail blows off La Willingham
    My eldest daughter is 22 today. I must be old. I discuss more fallout from Nightcap (NGHT) whose delisting is described by yellow journalists on the Mail as a blow to AIM. Sarah Willingham shows no market integrity but there has also been copious rule breaking. I discuss and name various guilty persons.
