New Bulletin Board Moron of the Week contest - sponsored by Paul "Queenie" McManus PR to London's worst frauds & AIM trash

Queenie smears journalists and spins for all the worst companies on the casino from fraudsters Eden to Advanced Oncotherapy to Norfolk's finest Fusionex. He truly is a posterboy for AIM and thus a fitting sponsor for this week's contest.  The challenge: We're looking for exemplary examples of sheer stupidity from those founts of brilliance; the Bulletin Board Morons who dwell on the cesspits that are LSE.co.uk, III.co.uk and ADVFN.co.uk. The deadline to post your entries in the comments section below is midnight, Sunday 2 July.

Strat Aero - shares double on results but the company is almost bust - placing ahoy!

Shares in Strat Aero (AERO) have almost doubled today to 0.14p which amazing as the final results for calendar 2016 are out and are utterly crap. Okay they are less crap than 2015 but they are crap and indicate that the company must be as near as damn it, bust. Yes we are promised more jam tomorrow but before we get there surely it is placing ahoy?

Anyhow for Phil Letts and his fellow grossly overpaid director his Mrs a song to brighten up the day.

Mother Of All Bubbles - there is no such thing as a free lunch

It typically takes about a 5% cut in US interest rates to fight bad US recessions and it was even worse after the Lehman crash in 2008. The Fed ran out of ammunition after 4.75% points and had to flood the system with liquidity by printing money. The total was, in artificial terms, the same as an 8.5% cut in rates. Currently the Fed has just 1% of cuts to play with in a crisis and in addition more QE is looking unlikely with both a growing electoral backlash and the fact that the two new Fed members suggested by the Trump administration, Randal Quarles and Marvin Goodfriend, are both staunch conservatives and very hostile to QE. This means the Fed may have to fight the next downturn with little in its arsenal.

Bombshell: How Rita Whittington changed her service agreement at Magnolia after GM requisition - this is attempted theft

On 2nd June 2017 the company received a GM request to, inter alia, fire Rita. So what to do?

For the Record No 3: Nomad Cenkos YET again put on record about RNS lies by client Mercantile Ports & Logistics

When AIM listed Mercantile Ports & Logistics (MPL) disappears up in smoke having sent tens of millions of UK Investor cash to money heaven, the stink will force Nomad Cenkos to show that it acted in a way that did not bring the Casino into disrepute, as it did when it allowed Quindell to commit wholesale fraud. Thus one shareholder, a veteran of the ports and logistics industry, is putting Cenkos on record now so that it can have no excuse at the death. letter one HERE raised clear questions of fraud. Letter two HERE showed more cases of how Mercantile misled investors. Now the shareholder has followed up again with a third letter to the head of corporate governance at Lagos Securities, Amber Wood, cc'ing in Redleaf, the PR to Mercantile as well as Quindell at the height of that fraud. Do Cenkos and fragrant Amber give a toss about clients lying to investors?

Blistering Performance of IQE Shares, But I'm Not selling Yet

Hello Share Scrimpers. When one suggests a share which becomes a two-bagger plus, there is a bit of a duty to keep readers appraised of developments. That is to examine whether it looks like enough is enough and it's time to consider taking profits. In the case of IQE (IQE) though, this is perhaps not the case.

Condor Gold Nicaragua Court No Show as it bullies peasants opposing La India Mine

Condor Gold (CNR) has still to inform its long suffering investors of the enormous opposition it faces on the ground as it tries to develop the La India gold mine in Nicaragua. Perhaps it is because CEO Mark Child knows that his company is acting like fascist bullyboys in the way they deal with poor local peasants. Child's actions probably impress his offshore based asset stripping millionaire mates but in the wider world the mood is changing and robber capitalism is not so cool any more. So what is overpaid and underperforming Mark not telling you?

Are we starting to see the revenge of the exploited AIM private investor? Or are they being double duped

Few, other than the clowns such as Marcus Stuttard at the LSE, can argue against AIM having delivered absolutely dreadful returns for investors. Since its launch the AIM Index is down by 5.4% (dividends included). The FTSE 100 has doubled over the same period and the FTSE Small Cap Index is 250% ahead. Actually the numbers are even worse. Strip out a handful of massive winners like ASOS and Domino's Pizza and the AIM Index is into double digit losses. But are private investors who have born the brunt of this wealth destruction now getting revenge with spate of attempted boardroom purges? Yes and No.

Qatar and helium make Solo Oil a true special situation

The term “Special Situation” has often been used as labeling by the marketing teams of funds as a means of attracting added investor interest in some of their funds where a strategy to invest in a “Special Situation”…….well sort of exists.......the actual fact is, the discovery of true “Special Situations” that offer real opportunities for investors to gain an advantage because of the “Special Situation” rather than the underlying fundamentals of the equity in question are actually not so easy to come by. Which leads me nicely onto Solo Oil (SOLO) and Helium-One.
