Mixed emotions for me this week as it looks like one of the more entertaining stars of the Sub-Standard Shockers XI, Opera Investments (OPRA), may finally have done a decent looking deal with the Kibo Mining (KIBO) gold assets; however, it looks like it will be heading off for the sunnier climes of AIM as a result, leaving my squad ever so slightly weakened.

Under its death spiral funding package with Bracknor, AIM-listed Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO) has to call an EGM to seek shareholder approval to reduce the nominal price of its shares (currently 25p) by at least half if the closing share price is below 110% of nominal (ie 27.5p) for ten consecutive trading days. And that brings us to the latest spoof director share purchase announced this morning (which hasn’t worked: the shares are down 4% last seen this morning).
Shares in Amryt Pharma (AMYT) have surged to 26p-26.5p so we are well up on the share tip price (18.4p offer) and within spitting distance of the 28p+ to sell target. But hang on tight pro tem...
Union Jack Oil (UJO) has noted an “Appeal & New Planning Application” announcement on the Wressle oil field (Union Jack: 15%, including 3.33% subject to approval from the Oil and Gas Authority) from operator Egdon Resources (EDR).

Yesterday afternoon AIM-listed, cash-crisis-hit Rurelec (RUR) announced that storm damage had hit its 50%-owned outfit in Argentina, Energia del Sur, resulting in a fire in a power switch which looks to have knocked out its 136 MW CCGT power plant in Southern Patagonia. But the storm was on 31 March: why did it take until 12 April to ‘fess up?

Hello Share Mulchers. Anyone fancy investing in palm oil? I thought not. It can get a jaundiced press for the effect it can have on gorillas and other animals that rely on palms. But it’s the general criticism that might lead you to research DekelOil (DKL).
It seems that despite bears not being universally popular, I'm not the only one who thinks that AIM-listed Frontera (FRR) is an out and out bargepole stock. In the wake of yesterday's ramparoonie (oops) highly informative RNS, the Twitterspere has seen a few comments - not least of which from Waseem Shakoor and investment house Jub Capital - sticking the knife in.
Hayward Tyler (HAYT) has announced £3.7 million of new order wins, emphasising these “in addition to those already announced in March as evidence of our ability to convert our strong pipeline into order intake”. Hmmm, this follows a profit warning as recently as 20th February though…

Kudos to Cynical Bear’s questioning whether a “Competition approvals” RNS last month from Sepura (SEPU) was really about competition approvals – it has now been announced that the Competition and Markets Authority is “to consider whether a public interest consideration is relevant to the acquisition as a result of Sepura's commercial arrangements with UK government entities”…

It is not just unrepentant former armed bank robbers who engaged in pump and dump. Even the "most respectable" City Nomads and brokers are, it seems, at it. Welcome to 24 hours in the world of Numis.

Readers will know that I'm far from convinced at the buy case for AIM-listed Frontera (FRR), shares in which have again been on the rampage after what looks like a rampety-ramp RNS yesterday. The ShareProphets RNS Translation Service thought it should chip in...

In a “non-regulatory RNS Reach communication”, Fitbug (FITB) “is pleased to announce a customer renewal for wellbeing services with a large financial institution”. Wow, a renewal hey – this following recently announced 2016 results showing a more than £3 million net cash outflow before new financing on reduced revenue of £1.1 million…
In this video from the storming success that was the 2017 UK Investor Show, in the 'Dragon's Den' companies have a 60 second pitch to Britain's Buffett Nigel Wray, Tom Winnifrith and Steve Moore for three £1,000 investments. Up first are Sula Gold (SULA), Symphony Environmental (SYM), Asiamet (ARS), Bluebird Merchant Ventures (BMV) and (sort of) Interquest (ITQ)...

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.

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.
