Magnolia Petroleum Part 1:-Back Zac "The Knife" Phillips and Sack Rita Whittingham

And so the battle lines are drawn at Magnolia Petroleum (MAGP), the dash guzzling worthless AIM POS founded by Gavin Burnell of Globo infamy. On the one hand there is an overpaid incumbent board led by less than lovely Rita Whittingham and backed by an overpaid army of crony capitalist advisers. On the other side are Even Ainsworth from Nostra Terra (NTOG) and Zac "The Knife" Philips, the City's top oil analyst. Magnolia has accepted that a GM request to outs less than lovely Rita and appoint Ainsorth and The Knife is valid. So what is the voting maths?

Tesla Motors – Is it a FANTA stock or is Elon Musk just David Lenigas on steroids?

I was going to have my usual weekend dig at one of the many over-promoted pieces of crap on the lower reaches of AIM but thought instead I should lift up my head and look further afield and take a pop at most over-promoted stock in the global markets with a proper superhero at the helm, namely Tesla Motors (NSDQ: TSLA) and the irrepressible Elon Musk.

Notes from Underground: Um, go Quindell?

Ha ha. We've been waiting for this for weeks, but now Slater & Gordon (who were given all the relevent ShareProphets articles when there was still time to back out) has actually filed suit against Watchstone, nee Quindell, claiming breach of warranty and/or fraudulent misrepresentation for a total amount of up to £637 million plus interest. It almost makes one want to root for Quindell this time.

Magnolia Petroleum - why Rita Whittingham must be fired Part 3 - duping mug punters

Earlier today i showed how Magnolia Petroleum (MAGP) has become a gravy train not just for CEO, not so lovely Rita Whittingham, but for her extended family as well. But when the operations are not generating cash how to fund the gravy train? Shimples: pump the stock with misleading RNS statements and do a discounted placing. Rinse and repeat. Want an example (for there are many)? Here goes.

Stuttard’s Septic Seven – June Update: and then there were just three

It is five weeks since our last update on the portfolio of seven AIM stocks selected for Marcus Stuttard, the sham sheriff of AIM, to put his money into to show his faith in the system of regulation last September. As you will recall, these were all companies which we had Red Flagged but about which AIM Regulation had done nothing. Last month the losses were 61.7% in about 8 months.

New Insurer on the Block Conquers Growing Market for Brits Abroad

Hello Share Bottlers. You may, or may not, have noticed that I currently favour insurance companies.

I would still commend both these entities to your further inspection. However, I now turn the spotlight on a smaller, newer and more specialised insurance player.

Servision and that breach of AIM rules with the delayed (lack of) profits warning - is it even worse that we thought?

I have been deeply troubled by the most recent lack of profits warning from AIM listed worthless POS Servision (SEV). My initial view, expressed HERE, is that in not admitting to order slippage from December for almost six months it had committed a massive breach of AIM Rules regarding timely disclosure of price sensitive news. But I fear it may be far worse than that.

The question of a soft or hard Brexit does not lie within UK politics

The question of a soft or hard Brexit does not lie within UK politics but with the priorities of the EU. The EU’s number one priority is to avoid setting a precedent of successful exits – the UK election result does not change this. What is clear, however, is that Mrs May is no longer in control of the outcome; parliament will decide on whatever deal emerges.

Echo Energy: The “Cornerstone Investor” leaving so soon – surely not?

My second piece on insiders cashing in and odd TR-1’s is, very predictably, looking at Echo Energy and, in particular, the two late RNS’s on Friday afternoon which show that the “Cornerstone Investor”, Greenberry plc, is offloading shares and warrants all over the shop and appears to be almost giving them away too – what a charitable sort!

For the Record No 2: Nomad Cenkos 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. Now the shareholder has followed up with a second 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.
