Is it worth giving Chariot another chance?

Chariot Oil and Gas (CHAR) has begun to get my attention again recently as it has plenty going on operationally during the next year or so, and could well become a popular share to be in once again.

Precious Metals Video Update: Short-Term Upside But How Much?

In this video Jordan Roy-Byrne of Palisade discusses the short-term upside potential in gold stocks and the key resistance levels. It would be a good sign for miners if they can test their February highs. Otherwise, the sector would remain in a trading range.

Milestone Group: Shocking ramptastic RNS’s with just one purpose – placing anyone?

Tom and I have been pretty consistent in our criticism of lifestyle company, Milestone Group (MSG), and although it was touched upon in Friday’s Bearcast (HERE), I thought the ridiculous recent RNS’s required a bit more of a kicking. It is an appalling effort with one sole purpose, to try to seduce new mug punters into supporting this useless company.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: What is a Cloudtag moron & the great EU blow-up we are missing

For the nth time not all Cloudtag (CTAG) shareholders are morons. But some are. I discuss how one defines a moron but also responding to "Rachael" I discuss why my combative style is needed and will not be changing. It cannot be an excuse for some of the things that have gone on. Yesterday's Cloudtag moron has now noticed my wife is of Indian origin and is emailing me accordingly. Then I look at the EU. The issue is not Wilders or Le Pen but economics and I present some data that will truly scare you. The can cannot be kicked down the road forever.

Final Thoughts on the Disgraceful IGAS Debacle. Lest We Forget

As the sordid story of IGas (IGAS) reaches its conclusion with massive destruction of value for its shareholders, let us not forget a deceitful and misleading chain of events, approved by Sarah Hale then at NOMAD Jeffries and completely unpunished by the AIM regulators.

Bulletin Board Moron of the Year - or is this parody? (Cloudtag Natch)

Not to be confused with our in-house loon Wildes, Wiids posts on the LSE Asylum and is long and strong Cloudtag (CTAG).

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Bob Diamond Panmure Gordon & a crap industry

I have been greatly distracted not least dealing with this utterly brain dead and vile Cloudtag (CTAG) shareholder who has been spamming me with the most ghastly abuse all day. I look at the Bob Diamond bid for Panmure Gordon (PMR) and what it means for the wider broking/corporate advisory sector. I then turn to Premaitha (NIPT) and the wider issue of the pointlessness of commissioned research. I touch on Management Resource Solutions (MRS) in light of the news earlier HERE but now the way it is really trying to screw shareholders with a 5p placing. There is comment on Jubilee Platinum (JLP). Then it is back to two old favourites: Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO) and Milestone (MSG). Woof Woof.

A One Off: Meet and talk 1-2-1 with Nigel Wray, the man dubbed Britain's Buffett only at UK Investor on April 1

Normally Nigel Wray turns up at UK Investor, talks and leaves. This year - our 15th anniversary party - is different. He will be there from start to finish and when not on stage that opens up a unique opportunity for those attending on April 1. For more than 40 years, Nigel , the man dubbed Britain's Buffett, has been a stockmarket legend for his ability to generate stellar returns not by wild gambling on mining punts or biotech start ups but by rigid value investing. Like the Original Buffett, the Sage of Omaha, Wray is a bottom up value investor who buys and holds. Would you like to know what he thinks is the cheapest share in London? Would you like a one to one chat with Nigel?

But today we learn that the shares are to remain suspended, yet there is no mention of an impending execution. This is a regulatory shambles – especially when we consider the apparent reasoning.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Wringing the Vicar's Neck, he is a mad Guardian reader

Dad and I got back from the hospital and were sitting down to lunch. water for me, wine for him. After a morning with a range of Shipmans he deserved it. Who should bound in but the vicar from our old village of Byfield. I told him that I had recently written an article about wringing his neck HERE. He then gushed out a stream of left wing views on Trump, Brexit and other matters that were so barking mad that even my Guardian reading father was a bit taken aback. A bitter attack on Uncle Chris Booker was the final straw. No wonder the CofE is going to the dogs.  On the podcast that followed I cover Orogen (ORE) where we are in and backing Adam Reynolds again, Nyota (NYO), Audioboom (BOOM), Andalas Energy (ADL) and Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO).
