Today we are told by Highlands Natural Resources (HNR) that the "institutional investor" that it refuses to name which bought 10 million 25p warrants ( and has an option to by 20 million more) at 1p per share has exercised 5 million warrants. Oooh er missus, now this spiv & chancer, sorry meant Institutional Investor must reveal himself.
Drone company Strat Aero (AERO) has announced results for the 2015 calendar year ridiculously late and after its AGM earlier on 30th June. I wonder why? …
I previously noted the importance of a successful conclusion to Premier Oil’s (PMO) bank lender discussions, and made the case that a very large equity raise was probably needed to put the company back on a sound footing. This morning finally sees some news on those lender discussions, made necessary by Premier’s inability to satisfy its covenants.
I warn you that this podcast uses bad language as I am unspeakably angry about the numbers from AIM cesspit posterboy Servision (SEV). In so many ways its results, which were issued at no-one is watching O'clock yesterday, are a disgrace. At least it is prepared to admit to some of the financial crimes against humanity which I have accused it of. But it is clearly bust and I comment on its numbers, on what the directors and auditors say, on its partial admission of guilt and on the reprehensible behaviour of Jon Bellis and his colleagues at Belfort Securities around the time of the (grossly misleading) interims of 30 September. The target price is 0p as this company is almost bust and truly is a piece of Turkish.
For what it is worth Wishbone Gold (WSBN) reported a loss of $1.12 million for calendar 2015 but that is all in the past. Perhaps the most noteworthy element of the historic numbers is the fact that the auditors cannot verify almost $100,000 of travel expenses and flag this up.
Getafix is still on holiday and has sent us back another snap for our amusement. But before we go to today's caption contest there was a clear winner yesterday

Are you listening Jon Bellis at Belfort Securities? You know your form is acting for fraudsters and shite companies yet you are happy for Belfort to keep banking the retainers. This is morally wrong. How do you sleep at night? In this podcast I discuss four stocks that are each worth 0p: Jiasen (FRAUD) - broker Belfort Securities, Servision (SEV) - where are your crooked accounts? Broker Belfort Securities, China New Energy (CNEL) a fraud, broker the disgraced Daniel Stewart and PCG Entertainment (PCGE) another China Norfolk, broker Belfort Securities.
Previously reviewing long-time purveyor of jam tomorrow (sorry, of X-ray screening systems to the security and industrial inspection markets), Image Scan Holdings (IGE) I concluded that it was looking more likely that the company can avert a cash crunch ahoy and move into profit and cash generation but that I awaited more evidence. The following updates post an announcement of “the single largest portable X-ray order ever received by Image Scan”…
Investing in foreign stocks usually brings with it a greater exposure to risk. That risk can come in a variety of forms: fraud, legal and political problems, and even war. But I would wager that few investors in Ukrproduct (UKR), the Ukrainian dairy producer, ever thought it was possible that a war would light up on their doorstep and damage the prospects of their harmless butter and cheese manufacturer.
You cannot keep a good stock promoter down. And say what you want about him , and I do, David Lenigas is pretty good at promoting, usually worthless, shares and he is back. In case you had not noticed he has rejoined the board of two of his former charges in the past week. I have today spoken by email with the big man.
Post its shares having been hit hard in the post UK EU referendum fallout, technology-focused recruitment and offshore services group, Harvey Nash (HVN) has emphasised that it is “encouraged” by performance in the first four months of its financial year. But what now?
I pointed out at the weekend why cash guzzling, dodgy accounting, jam tomorrow, RNS misleading, worthless piece of Turkish Servision (SEV) may have a few issues with its results. But where are those results for calendar 2015?
The race to see which of the twenty remaining ShareProphets AIM China Filthy Forty companies clocks up a suspension/delisting is hotting up as we enter the final furlong. Yesterday saw the loose horse of Grand Group (GIPO) – a non filthy forty runner but an otherwise well qualified AIM-China play nonetheless – cross the line first with a suspension as it can’t get its accounts out on time. But with a surprise late run GTS Chemical (GTS) now looks clear of the field as they head for the line after announcing plans to delist in August, subject to the forgone conclusion of a vote at its AGM.
I kid you not: this company has been on the Casino since joining in June 2010 as an investment company with assets of about £3 million and has never invested a cent. Yesterday, ShareProphets AIM-China Filthy Forty company Northwest Investment Group (NWIG) released results for calendar FY15: it still hasn’t invested a cent. But the money is disappearing.
I have not taken a view on Westminster Group (WSG) to date but it has done itself no favours at all with news today that it has appointed as its new NED, Tony Baldry, the Tory MP for Banbury until 2015 and a vile pig who demonstrates everything that is so repellent about the political establishment.
Writing earlier this month, I remained optimistic on both of my share tips of the year. Post recent developments and amidst current market volatility, I now update…
And so the ShareProphets AIM-China Filthy Forty is to be reduced by yet another company to just nineteen as GTS Chemical (GTS) has decided to up sticks in the best interests of its shareholders. For some reason this, apparently, serves as a perfectly valid reason for the company to bin the full year dividend which had previously been earmarked for an increase.
Old Getafix feels that he needs a break and so, cashing in a few of his dividend cheques, he has ,left us for a week but is sending back pictures every day for the Malcolm Stacey daily caption contest. Simply post your entries in the comments section below with a deadline of midnight. I shall start the ball rolling with this entry:
This morning ShareProphets AIM-China Filthy Forty play Aquatic Foods Group (AFG) released its calendar FY15 results. This is a complete farce and AIM Regulation should be ashamed, for that is where the real scandal lies.
The June edition of the UK Investor Show Magazine is live featuring three resource shares to buy, two more share tips, a voting guide for investors, and where to emigrate if the wrong party wins a special offer expiring on June 14 and much more.
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.
Slater & Gordon (SGH) spunked £649 million on buying the worthless, fraudulent assets of Quindell (QPP) in 2015, a deal that has seen its shareholders suffer a 99% wipeout. It has now filed a UK High Court claim against Watchstone (WTG), Quenron as was for £637 million and we have obtained the papers and, in a major scoop, publish the Claim in full below.
I tipped shares in Saffron Energy (SRON) but urged folks to take profits some months ago. The shares were then 8p+ having listed at 5p. In recent weeks the shares have slithered back towards that 5p and I have been urged by folks to re-tip. I resisted that urge. Something was wrong. Now we all know what some folks have clearly known for a while, what the problem is.
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.
It is good to see a CEO putting his money where his mouth is and the share purchase by Erik Henau should also scotch the silly rumours that a placing is imminent. The Concepta (CPT) head honcho has purchased 80,000 shares at 12.175p. He now owns 293,333 shares so in that context this is a decent purchase. We'd hope to see more boardroom buying soon but expect also to see more hard news on order flow very soon.
AIM-listed Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO) has released its full Annual Report. Having looked yesterday at a few things I thought it would be worth a second look – especially in the light of a clean audit report from RPG Crouch Chapman. Mea culpa to myself and Tom who expected something different, but hang on a minute…
I warned you in explicit terms yesterday that the doubling of the Strat Aero (AERO) share price to 0.14p on the back of results which can best be described as a shit sandwich with dollops of jam tomorrow on top, was not justified. The shares have now slumped back to 0.09p-0.11p (TW 7, BBMs 0 once again) but do not BUY now for there are still deluded fools abroad.
You may know Tom Winnifrith as the man who exposes fraud on AIM and gets a stack of death threats and lawyers letters for his troubles. Just on Tuesday he has published a massive exclusive on Quindell, the biggest London stockmarket fraud for 30 years, and a con the regulators thanked him for exposing. That breaking news is HERE.
Another day and another director walks, a new strategy is adopted and yet more confetti is issued by AIM casino uber dog Mayan Energy (MYN), formally the hound known as Northcote Energy. But this latest move just makes no sense at all. Let me explain with a little bit of help from a friend....
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?
Shares in ‘big data’ company WANdisco (WAND) are continuing a recovery on the latest news of an agreement with Silicon Valley Bank.
Worthless AIM listed piece of excrement Servision (SEV) always seems to report its results at the last possible moment to avoid suspension on the casino. In 2016 calendar 2015 numbers (piss poor) arrived on the 30 June deadline day. For 2016 its a slam dunk bet that the numbers (piss poor) will arrive this Friday on deadline day. Why is that?
I see shares in Blur (BLUR) are tanking again. Quelle suprise - given that it could be tits up time in three weeks. Anyhow for Phil Letts and his fellow grossly overpaid director his Mrs a song to brighten up the day. Natch as I think happily to a concert way back then in a summer's evening in Mile End Park, it's by Blur... To The End!
Hello Share Buglers. If you have cats like me, or dogs, you’ll be painfully aware of how much vets charge these days. I’m sure they need years of training and the drugs they use don’t get any cheaper, but the price I pay for two daily tablets to keep my cat’s thyroid problem at bay is rather unnerving.
It has taken more than two decades and exposed the Greek planning system for the total joke that it is but Minoan (MIN) now has the all clear to go ahead and develop the spectacular Cave Sidero site in North East Crete.
A “Holding(s) in Company” announcement in Blur Group (BLUR) of a transaction on Friday – the day in which at 7am it released an “Update on financing, business plan and trading”…
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.
