Tom Winnifrith: The Top short sellers, bears and fraudbusters all together on April 1 - don't miss out
Published 4 days ago
Death spiral provider Bracknor does not buy shares in companies. It loans the desperate, cash at pound of flesh rates which it then converts into shares at discounted rates and flogs to mug punters. That is the classic death spiral model. But to get such a death spiral away it needs a perception of market liquidity and also to avoid a complete short term collapse of the share price. And that brings us to Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO).

Cynical Bear says that I am just being far too kind to Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO) with my 15 questions earlier today.

For years Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO) has ramped its shares to get away placing after placing with ramptastic investor presentations. But that was before I started asking all those horrible questions for which there was no answer. and Winnileaks started obtaining toxic leaked emails. Last night the company had a presentation in London. It has another in Zurich this morning. Warning Swiss folk and tax dodgers quotes about the London chinwag include "everyone left unhappy" and from a long term bull "I am just throwing in the towel." The shares have crashed by 23% to 36p bid so far today. The target for me remains 0p. But for those folks going to the Zurich meeting here here are 15 questions Advanced can't or won't answer:

AIM listed Eden Research (EDEN) has been engaging on fraudulent deals with related party company Terpenetech for six years now. The first deal was a sale which Eden booked but Terpenetech never paid for. Who cares, Eden kept that debt as a current asset for 5 years. Sure the auditors should have kicked up a fuss, the Nomad should have objected but this is AIM who cares about fraud! Of course the far bigger £600,000 fraud waited until August 2015. It was a panama pump classic as you can see here - but this is AIM and Nomad & broker ShoreCap wanted to earn big commission do a placing so everyone again turned a blind eye. But now the cover up is falling apart.

When AIM uber dog Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO) announced that instead of going for non dilutive funding ( as no-one would provide it) it was being forced to resort to a dreadful £13 million death spiral from loan sharks Bracknor, its shares were 65p. When the death spiral started the shares were 58p. Now it just £100,000 of the death spiral loan notes on the first £1.3 million tranche converted, the shares are just 43p to sell. Bracknor now has three reasons to panic.

Employer of convicted felon, the cop mugger champagne Charlie Gibson, investment prostitutes Edison will publish bullish research notes and interviews with any company as long as they dip into their shareholders' funds. The interview with the bombastic prick David Williams who earns a seven figure wedge for running Avanti Communications (AVN) into the ground last summer ( see HERE) was a classic of its genre. Today Edison has published a note saying Avanti shares are worth 109p. The market thinks the report is worthless bog-paper and the shares are down by almost 10% at just 14.875p.

There seems to have been quite a bit of volume yesterday in trading of AIM-listed CloudTag (CTAG). Some of us have been noting the rather greater difficulty with which L1 has been offloading stock from loan conversions and warrant exercises which goes in tandem with lower volume - and a complete lack of news from the company to get the BBs in a lather, but yesterday things really picked up.

Moody's states viz a viz the bonds " Moody's sees a default by Avanti over the next 6-12 months as almost inevitable." On that basis the target price for Avanti shares has to be ZERO.

Just last week Quisling Quindell (QPP) blogs like Betaville promised us that a bid from Slater & Gordon was imminent. Oh dear. More lies. Hard cheese morons. Slater & Gordon has just released its interims and they do not read well for Quenron.

The publication of material that you know to be untrue or misleading in an attempt to persuade folks to buy or sell securities is termed market abuse and is a criminal act and that brings me to the latest act of insanity by a Quindell (QPP) owning moron – the creation of the twitter account @tomwinifrith. You will note that it has only one n and so is not me but you could easily be forgiven for making that mistake.

It has been a quiet week on the Quindell (QPP) front although none of the ludicrous bull calls have come good: S&G exclusivity ended Friday and we were told that a bid would happen last week and that Quenron had lined up a big bank to advise it. Well …it did not happen and it will not happen.

I start on the matter of free speech and attempts by the Jihadists of the QPPSAG to deny that. We won a big victory over the morons yesterday. In that vein I urge those who enjoy Bearcasts and who support free speech to book their seats for UK Investor Show on April 18 in Westminster now HERE. In the podcast I cover Mosman Oil & Gas, Rambler Metals, Red Leopard, Beacon Hill Resources, Management Resources and then go in big time on Asian Citrus but more especially on Camkids - target price 0p.

In today's podcast I look at how the human mind reacts to rising and falling share prices, the case study being Quindell (QPP) which is tanking today - now at 80p, target remains 0p. I look at Mosman Oil & Gas (MSMN) and its proposed Aussie takeover which - as I explain - must now be in terrible trouble - target here 1p. I look at the pointless Forte Energy and Red Emperor and then a read through from Produce Investments. I also propose a new "£4 million Rule" for the AIM Casino - what do you think?

I exposed how Quindell is going to get rogered (at best) by Slater Gordon overnight HERE in this podcast I discuss how this accounting fiddle works, what it means for Quenron's (QPP) dire financial position, it really should be fessing up to that and has not and I also flag up that Gotham City Research is starting to wake up. For the avoidance of doubt the share price target remains 0p and the fact that the shares are up today shows nothing other than the insanity of man, the bear case has just got stronger still.

Shares in the fraud Naibu (NBU) were finally suspended on the AIM casino on 9 January 2015 after the NEDS woke up and requested clarification of the financial position of a company claiming to be cash generative and drowning in cash. How long does it take to check this out? What next?

In today's podcast I start with oil stocks and oil prices and discuss why I would not touch any of them with a bargepole - particular mentions of Tangiers Petroleum, Falklands Oil & gas, Rockhopper, Igas, Northern Petroleum and the rampers of Mosman Oil & Gas. I then move onto Quindell discussing whether my 0p target is too low.

The suspension of trading in shares in China fraud Naibu (NBU) will make bear raider Lucian Miers a stack of cash as he was a long time short. So who is next?

Anyone owning a Chinese based AIM stock is certifiably bonkers. That is especially the case if it is based in Fujian Province, a small part of the PRC which has specialised in listing frauds on AIM, the Frankfurt Exchange, the TSX and NASDAQ. The Fujian four on AIM are: Camkids (CAMK), Naibu (NBU), China Chaintek (CTEK) and Jiasen International (JSI) and for all four my ultimate target price is 0p. But I feature Jiasen today at 42.5p as a sell of the year.

Quindell (QPP) has today issued an RNS which is pure bollocks. Ever keen to help I am happy to provide a translation into English, something which shows both that the new board are as keen to mislead as the old and that this company is up shit creek without a paddle.

Some of you may regard this as boring. There is after all, ALMOST, nothing written below that I have not written before. But I promised my top 5 shorts as part of my 10 tips of the year and Quindell (QPP) is my top short. Quite simply these shares are worthless. And so selling at 42p or whatever you can get is a sure fire 100% win. This is a “niller” at so many levels. Where do we start?

I actually like the team from Beaufort Securities but have to pull them up for this note of last Thursday on AIM China POS Jiasen International (JSI). This company may be legit but everything it states follows the pattern of companies – like it – from Fujian province which are out and out frauds.

Having sunk to 0.055p after stating that “if the company is not able to raise additional funds by early January 2015, then the board will have to consider whether or not the company can continue to trade beyond this time”, shares in Ultrasis plc (ULT) currently trade at 0.14p – capitalising the company at £2.5 million – on the back of an announcement that financing “discussions remain ongoing”, though that “there can be absolutely no certainty that an agreement can be reached”. If they are not this is 0p. If there is a refinancing it will be at 0.05p. Why anyone is buying defies belief. The following details the, err ‘not exactly promising’, track record here…

I touch on a few other companies in this podcast, notably 3Legs Resources, Wandisco and Security Resources which is leaving the AIM casino. But I focus on Quindell analysing how and why its remaining shareholders are simply in denial. I also discuss at length today's bombshell research note from Canaccord (HERE) and what it means. It means death and 0p.

Canaccord has not only quit as broker to Quenron (QPP) but it has now withdrawn its forecsats, buy stance and target price. In a note packed with red flag alerts it says its stance is “under review”. As I explained here the other day that means SELL! The note reads:

Daniel Stewart earns £6,250 + VAT pcm for being Nomad and broker to China fraud Naibu (NBU) – it needs the cash. But its latest note from respected analyst Simon “Wincey” Willis shows that even it has had enough. All forecasts, recommendation and target price have been withdrawn. It seems that even Daniel Stewart is alarmed by this total joke for reasons I explained yesterday HERE.

The China fraud Naibu (NBU) has today served up a ghastly profits warning but it gets better – it has now changed its excuse as to why a company supposedly drowning in cash has had to scrap its dividend. But Nomad Daniel Stewart, the specialist in floating China frauds, has signed off on the ludicrous statement so that is alright then. Another £6,250 pcm retainer saved for Daniel Cesspit. Ching. Ching. Coke and hokkers all round.

Given the heaps of abuse I took for calling this one as a nil (that is to say worth 0p) HERE and HERE and several other times on BearCast, I may be forgiven for having a celebratory ouzo today as African Minerals appears to have bitten the dust. Needless to say “its tits up time” was announced at no-one is watching O’Clock , 5.36 PM.

Quindell is a fraud. It has lied to investors and since it never generates cash it is worth 0p. Right now the shares are 49p – and falling – and in today’s BearCast I explain why the fall to 0p might be steady or dramatic. But for now we pretend that with Rob Terry on the board it is a normal business. This is a pretence and needs to be addressed. Here are ten questions hapless shareholders need to be asking.
Published 858 days ago
Rob Terry you are a liar, a fraudster and now I also accuse you of insider dealing. I shall not rest until you go to prison you low life vermin criminal. For today we discovered that you and your FD Laurence Moorse and NED Steve Scott sold vast numbers of Quindell shares while withholding price sensitive information – that Canaccord, your joint broker and sponsor of your failed main market listing application had quit.

The Sunday Times has today unearthed evidence of the cash crisis at Quindell (QPP). Listeners to bearcasts here will not be suprised by this news. So what does Quindell do now? Will the sad excuse of a Nomad that is Cenkos let it respond or must the shares be suspended at once. In an angry and hard hitting podcast I lay out what lies ahead as the shit hits the fan and the shares become worthless. 0p is in sight. Events are now moving at light speed, the word "vindication" is on my lips.

In March this company was capitalised at almost £3 billion, Quenron (QPP) was – according to fraudster Rob Terry – heading for the FTSE 100. Today, at 68.5p, it is valued at less than £300 million and surely the end is nigh. So when do our readers think that Quenron shares will be suspended and/or hit 0p. The deadline for voting is midnight Sunday.

The default position of Quindell (QPP) bulls is that in a worst case scenario it can be saved as was the Innovation Group (TIG) when the fraudster Rob Terry exits stage left. They might not get all their cash back but they would not lose everything. In this podcast, I examine this proposition and conclude that it is rather different this tme and hence why 0p is the only end game for Quenron.

A few interweb problems here in Eire, so I have nipped up to Darina Allen's Ballymaloe house to book supper for tonight - a mega culinary treat for the Mrs and myself and to upload another hard hitting recording. On the agenda is Quindell and how soon its shares could be suspended for the Equities First Holdings LLC farce. Also a discussion of the whole issue of suspension and where the AIM casino will go post this scandal. There are some hard questions here for many. Then I also look at African Minerals (target price 0p).

I have only just driven across Ireland and arrived at Ballymaloe to record this but there is plenty to discuss in this hard hitting podcast. Oh yes it is very hard hitting indeed. On the agenda: Quindell (end game, a new whistleblower and new frauds emerging) and Cenkos (lies), Coms ( a bombshell revealed), Radiant Growth, China frauds and Daniel Stewart, Sefton, APR Energy (political risk generally) and African Minerals (vindication and 0p on the cards). Ouch, its stinging all round.

As the stench of death gets ever more ghastly at Quenron (QPP) it seems that every new day this corpse in waiting attracts the attention of a new celebrity bear raider. A couple of weeks ago Muddy Waters chipped in. Today it is the legendary John Hempton of Bronte Capital who has been tweeting words of “encouragement” to the morons. That is before he warns that the shares are going to 0p.

At the weekend we asked you which of the most worthless POS and in some cases fraudulent stocks on the AIM Casino would be the first to go to 0p or be suspended. It ended up as a three horse race with all three front runners having just one thing in common – the involvement of Daniel Stewart, always a red flag.

On Monday night I gave a 40 minute presentation in Clerkenwell in which I showed the frauds Quindell (QPP) has perpetrated, demonstrated why - despite what it says - it has never and will never generate cash and so why its shares are worth 0p.

This came onto my desk yesterday and is a true horror story (unless you are a bear). Of all of the stinking Quenron subsidiary accounts to emerge so far this is arguably the one that stinks the most. But I still have plenty more to go through so I will not award the “stinkiest Quenron subsidiary accounts 2013” title just yet. I covered the POS that is Maine Finance Ltd in a preliminary way yesterday night in a 40 minute presentation showing clearly that Quindell was a fraud and worth 0p. The video of that talk and accompanying slides will go live within 36 hours and the 2 PLC FDs in the room were horrified by what they heard. But back to Maine Finance Limited.

Quite simply I have never read such complete and utter bollocks in my life. As I write Quenron (QPP) shares are down by a couple of pence at 151p. That is despite it issuing a trading statement which was meant to appear extraordinarily upbeat. In the old days the stock would have jumped by 20% on this sort of bull. But these days investors seem to be waking up to the fact that it does not add up, that the company is talking patent bollocks and that the cash situation is clearly critical. Chuck in the Red Flags from subsidiary accounts which are landing thick and fast and this one is now in a a rapid spiral towards death.

I know who poster 42 is and he knows more about Quenron (QPP) than any analyst currently covering the stock in the City. His comment on the trading statement today is bang on the money (or rather lack of it). I shall post my own thoughts later once I have gone through a couple more bogus subsidiary accounts. 42 writes:

And so Quindell Legal Services, the biggest part of the Quenron Group (QPP) has filed its accounts. Also of interest is the fact that it filed two annual returns for last year. Would Quindell care to deny that it had a spot of bother with its capital adequacy forms filled in with the FCA? That might explain a few of the red flags but not all.

The Quenron (QPP) subsidiary accounts are now landing thick and fast at Companies House and I am ploughing through them but have unearthed the stinkiest yet – Compass Costs. The numbers stated are different in different places, there is revenue missing and there is a curious dividend paid. It stinks to high heaven and since Compass is part of an FCA regulated entity (Quindell Legal Services of which more later) this is certain to attract FCA attention.

At last the accounts of Quenron (QPP) subsidiaries are starting to emerge at Companies House and you can see why Rob Terry and his FD Laurence Moorse were so tardy in filing because they are a true can of worms. The first which has arrived is 360GlobalNet Ltd which is 60% owned by Quindell and this stinks to high heaven. Even the pathetic QPPSAG must surely now be hearing the alarming bells ringing? Or perhaps they all have Industrial deafness.

I have made it clear that I believe that even without an escalation of Ebola, the balance sheet weakness of African Minerals (AMI), the debt laden POS AIM Casino listed miner founded by convicted heroin dealer Frank Timis, will be its undoing. Today the company tried to put the best possible spin on pretty dismal interim results.

From the team that brought you Naibu (NBU) we also have China Chaintek (CTEK) which released its interims today and it goes without saying that they do not stack up either. My target price for the shares is 1p (the value of the cash dividend on offer) but since it will probably be the last when the stock goes ex my target price will be slashed to 0p.
