Following the Dragon's Den pitches it appears that we are now shareholders in Jubilee Platinum (JLP). And in that vein I invite you to watch its boss Leon Coetzer presenting at UK Investor show. Enjoy
Broker Brandon Hill has a corporate relationship with Bushveld Minerals (BMN) so take what follows with a pinch of salt. However in a note out yesterday it exploians why the deal to buy Evraz vanadium assets makes sense and looks to be a good one for Bushveld.
Well this was not on the agenda but in a surprise move Paul Scott pitched up to do a breakout room presentation at UK Investor Show. Enjoy
Hello Share Bunnies. You may be tempted top think that shares in magazine companies could be a bit iffy following Trinity Mirror’s (TNI) decision to pull the plug on its latest daily newspaper. But there is a company in this line which is doing rather well. Connect (CNCT) is Britain’s largest magazine and newspaper outfit.
Lucara Diamond Corp (LUC) today announced the sale of an 812.77 carat rough diamond for a record $63,111,111. Mined at the Karova mine in Botswana in November 2015 the diamond has been named, "The Constellation", The numbers are just mind boggling. The photos below are pretty amazing too.
There were some absolutely cracking entries for this caption contest as you can see here. In a sense, as it is round at WH Ireland (WHI), everyone is a winner (other than the clients) so high was the standard of entries as you sought suitable captions for the picture below from the WH Ireland HR department. But the two joint winners are
I end with a summary of the wildlife diversity encountered today at the Greek hovel as I start pruning the olive trees. I start with Iofina (IOF) where the numbers are ghastly, this is a ramp built on sand. I also cover China Africa (CAF), Opera (OPRA), Bango (BGO) and Optibiotix (OPTI). But my mind is really on the manual labour that lies ahead here in the mountains of Greece
Rightster Group (RSTR, though set to be re-named Brave Bison Group) talks in an AGM statement today of “moving to profitability and greater value going forward” with a “new strategy, in creating owner operated video channels”. Hmmm, having thus far been a wrongster, is this really now set to be a rightster?
As ever, when Avanti Communications (AVN) sees its share price slipping it announces a new contract win. There is a brief rally, and the rally gets smaller each time this trick is pulled, and then the shares start to fall again because - as we know - this company is hurtling towards insolvency. And so with the shares sub 90p to sell on Friday what do we have today?
Shares in Fairpoint (FRP) are off by 10% today to 128p, giving a market cap of £58m, as the market digests a trading statement to accompany today’s AGM. While not entirely straightforward, an investment thesis can be made at this valuation.
In Rome on Thursday, in the very same room where the famous treaty was signed in 1957, Martin Schultz, president of the European Parliament, complained that ‘we have a lot of salesmen in the European Council and only a few statesmen’. The problem with the idea of one EU state and one vision was and is an illusion. The 28 nation block lacks leadership and is descending into petty, nationalistic political trends being exacerbated by mass immigration and poor fiscal disciplines.
Another day and its another announcement from Challenger Acquisitions (CHAL) that its boss is again buying shares. Don't be fooled this is a spoof. Its a sell signal not a sign to buy.
We own shares in Petropavlovsk (POG) and wont be selling at anything like the current share price. Our target to sell is 19p. I hope this presentation from the head honcho Peter Hambro explains why we are able to be so bullish.
HaloSource, Inc. (HAL) has announced “a conditional asset sale agreement to sell its Recreational Water business… for an initial cash consideration of up to $7.5 million and further deferred cash consideration of up to $0.5 million”. The announcement though later states “an initial cash payment of $4.0 million”. Hmmm, what’s going on?
Ed Croft was a busy boy at UK Investor Show doing a main stage slot as well as a couple of breakout room presentations and below is a video of the first of these.
AIM-listed ValiRx (VAL) operates in the biotech space, developing cancer drugs. I’ve been pretty beastly in previous pieces (see HERE) but I am pleased to note that the company has seen fit to address the questions asked over Companies House filings. As pointed out HERE they were indeed wrong and they have now been corrected. Good news. My hope is that the questions over the Bracknor funding deal will now be addressed.
In this presentation I explained how laws on insider dealing and market abuse worked and what they were exactly. I used Chris Oil as a case study showing why the little twerp should be facing a mega fine and a jail term.
Armadale Capital (ACP) has updated on work to develop and add further value to its Mpokoto gold project, alongside funding discussions.
We bought this stock and tipped it at 8p. The shares are now c80p and we still hold more than half our holding and won't be selling them for anything less than 100p. we are bullish and after this presentation by Optibiotix (OPTI) boss Steve O'Hara I hope you can see why. Enjoy.
Hello Share Stumpers. Today I return to the space-age firm of Inmarsat (ISAT) the satellite company that goes where no man has been before. That’s probably over-egging the pudding, as there is some competition for what it does, which is arrange the launching of communications satellites into space. I have had my shares a long time and have seen my investment rocket. However, there was a glitch at the end of last week when the company revised its revenue expectations. The shares were down about 14% at one point
The April edition of the UK Investor Show Magazine is live featuring Metal Tiger, BMR, Harley Investments, Action Hotels and much more.
This week's contest is graciously sponsored by MoneySwap, the Filthy Forty constituent that has this week requested to be dropped from the AIM market.
Making money from shares is simple. Well it should be. Buy cheap. Hold. Hold. Hold. Hold, and finally sell when the shares have delivered you big gains. Where so many folks go wrong is getting impatient and not being prepared to hold, hold, hold. Let us tell you about Symphony Environmental (SYM) which we tipped at a 6.75p offer just over three years ago. It did nothing for ages....
Before I call it a day I want to see the victims of the African Potash (AFPO) fraud get some of their money back, even if some of those victims were fairly beastly to me as I exposed the fraud. Friday's bombshell from Potash shows the game is up but the big frauds happened before this worthless enterprise was booted off AIM. To that end I have been working to help put together a legal action. That action is now almost underway and Peter Petyt, the man running things, wrote to more than 50 victims who have come forward at the weekend. If you lost money and want to try to get it back it is not too late to contact Peter. His letter & contact details follow.
AIM-listed Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO) Exec Chairman Dr Michael Jeffrey Sinclair has, according to the OpenCorporates.com website, served as an officer of 155 companies over his illustrious career. With Advanced Onco facing a few issues of cash as it tries to get its Harley Street facility installed and running, it is perhaps worth a gander through this record. Here are the first 29 listed on the OpenCorporates.com website (actually it is 30, but one appears to be a double entry so has been removed).
On tipping shares in Metal Tiger (MTR) earlier this month, we noted an oversubscribed (initially £3 million, but then £4.29 million) fundraising through well-known North American natural resources name Sprott. Tiger has now announced the closing of the funding…
BNN Technology (BNN) published its Annual Report last week along with an update on its current cash position and the appointment of a new Non-Exec Chairman. The share price has rallied 6% but is still shy of the 80p at which broker Mirabaud recently raised £25 million - and, looking through the bluster, there are some serious issues that holders might care to consider.
Artificial political constructs never last. The EU is great for the “elites” in Brussels; not so much for the average citizen and the tragedy of monetary union is that Europe's political class has gone to extreme lengths to hold the euro together regardless of underlying economic logic. But this has only perpetuated and exacerbated the coming political crisis. "Monetary union has created a conflict between a centralised elite on the one hand, and the forces of democracy at the national level on the other. This is extraordinarily dangerous,” Mervyn King wrote in his recent book 'The End of Alchemy'.
Hello Share Snappers. It’s a bit disconcerting when you elect a share to bring to your notice and then find it appears on the list of most shorted shares on this stupendous website.
This week's contest is graciously sponsored by African Potash, AIM, NEX, Chris Cleverly vehicle that is bound to hit the stratosphere.*

Friday, we asked you to caption the photo inside in recognition of the snap election. The results seem to show that ShareProphets readers are neither Labour voters nor CloudTag fans.
Another day and another ramptastic "Operations Update" from Andalas Energy (ADL). Operations is a bit of a strong word as Andalas does not really have any. It should really have been "Jam Tomorrow" update but then again tomorrow suggests the jam may arrive which, given the track record of this dog, looks unlikely. What will arrive on Friday is a demand for £500,000 and as Andalas has sod all cash and is burning what it has at a rate of knots that is a bit of a problem. Oddly this is not mentioned in today's RNS.

I previously wrote on WANdisco (WAND) in January – ‘one quarter does not an investment make, but offers some encouragement for shareholders’. The following updates with the shares currently on the rise on the back of a “Significant customer win and Q1 update” announcement…
After all the fussing and moaning about Tom leaving the site to pick olives or raise snakes or whatever it is he's doing, and following a spectacular week where the most popular story was written by yours truly, we have come to what we all expected in the first place. The number one story this week is General Election June 8th - Surely there is no doubt as to the outcome, there is no uncertainty now, written by one Tom Winnifrith.
Together Robert Sutherland Smith and Tom Winnifrith have now been working in finance for 71 years - the last ten or so together. Tom wishes to stress that RSS accounts for most of that, the great value investor starting his City career at the Unilever Pension Fund the year before Tom was born. In this book they outline 71 tricks of the trade for making money from shares.

Most investment books seem to be large enough to keep the front door open and while some contain gems it is hard to find them amid the verbiage. The aim here is to produce a short guide which simply cuts to the chase. I hope that it will provide food for thought for everyone from beginner to expert but whoever you are it should be quick and easy to read and digest.
