Opera Investments – yet another disappointment on the (Sub) Standard List.

Following on from my recent piece on Toople (TOOP) being its newest member and the almost predictable, disappointing news relating to Opera Investments (OPRA) earlier in the week, the time has come for a call to arms. There must be change to the rules governing the clearly Sub-Standard Listing segment of the Official List as it is not fit for purpose. I need your assistance.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast - a Nightmare about bars in Sunderland Edition

A reader says that ahead of bearcast he now gets an advert for bars in Sunderland. Poor fellow. Perhaps he should move from the welfare safaris of the grim North to the hard working South of England?

Sound Energy - The Truth is this (junk) Bond issue is a disaster: Sell!

Sound Energy (SOU) has today boasted that it has signed heads of terms for Euro 28.8 million of new bonds with a coupon of just 5%. Sound fantastic. Except that if you dig into the detail you will see that, in fact, Sound could get away bonds only at junk pricing with a related party. That tells you that its shares are a stonking sell.

Mercantile Ports & Logistics - slam dunk sell (target 0p) as Nomad Cenkos (again) brings AIM into disrepute

Nomad Cenkos was repeatedly warned by myself and others about the fraud at Quindell (QPP). It banked fees of more than £12 million and did nothing to stop the wrongdoing. In doing so it brought AIM into massive disrepute. Now there is evidence that it is turning a blind eye to horrific red flags at Mercantile Ports & Logistics, which at 8.5p is capitalised at £32 million. My target price is 0p but what the hell is Cenkos playing at? I break my break to deal with the errant Nomad - I have a score to settle here since some of the money it raised for the Quenron fraud was used to harass me with fascist lawyers letters..

Concepta Results - where are the China sales? Buy: fireworks ahead

Concepta (CPT) wants to know why its shares are nor racing away although having tipped this at an 11p offer we are, at 16.5p, well up.? Simple. It announced last autumn that it was about to sell its MyLotus kits in China and since then it has appointed a country manager and huffed and puffed but there are no sign of those sales. And against that background after calendar 2016 results the shares are just 16.5p mid. But before you sell hang on a second...the shares are actually a stonking buy if yoiu can get them at 16p or underand here is why.

Rosslyn Data - moves goalposts with bailout placing to hide its abject failure

Floated at 33p by Lagos Securities, or Cenkos as it prefers to be known, on the back of a prospectus that forgot to mention critical damaging information, Rosslyn Data (RDT) has been a serial disappointer and was clearly set to run out of cash this year, despite numerous protestations from its discredited management that this was not the case. And so today, the oldest trick in the book - a bailout placing dressed up as an acquisition. The price of the bailout, just 4.5p.
