No doubt the spivs are on the ramp again but shares in Independent Resources (IRG) have dived by 30% to 0.415. That is because the stock has today on ex-rights on the open offer announced today. If you buy now you do not get to take part in a 2 for 3 offer at 0.065p! So do the maths again.

Well, this is awkward.. Prime Minister Theresa May will be visiting newly minted US President Donald Trump next week and hopes to initiate some sort of trade deal, a mere 48 hours after Trump told the world of his plans: “From this day forward, it’s going to be only America first. America first.” But I am sure that he'll make an exception for us. TW Note - Does Darren actually bother to check what Trump says on Trade deals? More fake news from remoaning liberal losers...

Those who do not like Beaufort Securities have been lining up to send me copies of an FCA notice varying its permissions to shut down its Discretionary Fund Management (DFM) services with immediate effect. Indeed, for weeks, I have been told by a number of folks tales of the FCA pitching up at Beaufort to remove computers. For those viewing this as part of a wider clampdown on City brokers or a massive blow for Beaufort, I have bad news...

We picked up some of these shares at the Dragon's Den pitch at the UK Investor Show. We sold this morning at a loss and in disgust at 91p. The order was just to sell after United Cacao (CHOC) served up the most god-awful trading statement on a day when most folks are just not around but are off doing Christmas shite. Sadly for Cacao Scrooge's biggest fan is at his desk and my comments on this horror are in bold.

As you may remember, by February 14 AIM listed Strat Aero - a company that has committed fraud - will be both out of cash and £300,000 in debt to a loan shark. As it munches its way through a hundred grand a month the outlook looks bleak, in fact it looks terminal. This has 0p written all over it. The man who exposed the frauds we know about is a chap called Hulsey Smith who was given a stack of cash and 12% of the equity to settle a legal case and shut up. And so today we learn that Hulsey has been dumping more shares.

As joint house broker to the exponent of Securities fraud that is Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO), Beaufort has to sound bullish and has thus reiterated its speculative buy stance today. But read the note carefully. Beaufort is frit. I have highlighted key phrases that have not appeared before for you. Key phrases which show goalposts being moved and a broker that is sick of being made to look foolish.

By my maths Strat Aero (AERO) now has cash of er...about...roughly...sweet FA. It is completely out of cash and continues to burn cash and indeed when publishing results that were drowning in red ink on September 30th the management were reported as admitting that it needed to place before Christmas. I should cocoa. You don't need the brains of Cheryl Cole to work that one out.

I was starting to warm to Colin Bird at Xtract Resources (XTR) with his decisive action and straight-talking, although today’s hugely disappointing funding RNS which needs about five reads and three espressos to understand leaves me feeling cold, although I’m guessing Beaufort Securities and Beaumont Cornish should shoulder some of the blame.

In this bearcast special I take apart a share price ramp being orchestrated today by Solo Oil's (SOLO) broker Belfort Securities, PR fecking genius Steffi and the rampers nest of snakes that is the Justin the Clown podcast at Vox Markets. Investors need to be aware there is a massive stock overhang and a placing ahoy. They are being hoodwinked not by the company I stress but by its crony capitalist advisers and by those for whom Lenin's phrase "useful idiot" could not be more apt.

Just when Wishbone (WSBN) shares were getting going again after the last placing conducted by Belfort Securities to their spiv share flipping bucket shop mates, here we go again. Boy my morning has started well: not only do I have to suffer more laziness and abusive emails from my lazy, greedy bitch of a selfish bitch of an ex wife but this as well. I want to go back to bed.

My last comment on Wishbone Gold (WSBN) was not exactly positive. The company's shares had raced ahead, in part methinks, down to comments made by me saying I'd not be selling until the shares were closer to 2p than 1p. It then raised £600,000 at just 0.75p with broker Beaufort Securites trousering not just commission but warrants. I write a fairly vicious piece HERE. But we did not sell and at 1p are still holding and hoping for better. I swapped emails with chairman Richard Poulden last week.

I am in a bad mood because a) baby with no name is screaming a lot and I am tired and b) some little shit for brains round at Beaufort Securities was slagging me off to a client today. This little turd of little brain turned out to have his facts wrong and so I am now officially on the warpath and, hence, go through today's morning note from Belfort and dissect its utterly 100% shite research on Strat Aero (AERO), Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO) and Servision (SEV). I also look at Audioboom (BOOM) and Kodal Minerals (KOD).

Lying to your investors is bad. I suppose committing fraud is even worse. But advisers without morals such as Nomad SP Angel and broker Beaufort Securities do not care about such matters as long as they get paid. But that may pose a problem as interims today from Strat Aero (AERO) show that it is completely bust. That SP Angel and Belfort will sign off on an RNS like this says everything you need to know about them. The only thing they should be signing is a resignation letter as Strat is bankrupt both morally and financially.

At almost no-one-is-watching o’clock yesterday (4pm) a complete waste of space POS on AIM called Draganfly Investments Limited (DRG) announced that it had raised a poxy £145,000 before expenses through the good offices of its Broker Beaufort Securities at 0.8p a share – a discount to the prevailing share price of 27% - representing 35% of the existing equity. Ouch and double ouch. But the whole thing is a complete joke of an enterprise.

I am not kidding you but there really is an AIM Rulebook for the Casino. But I guess round at Strat Aero no-one has bothered to read it. Sadly ignorance is no defence.

The more one reads of the explosive legal dossier packed with damning emails, filed by Hulsey Smith in the Texas Courts against Strat Aero (AERO), the more one sees the massive implications for the whole of AIM. In yesterday's bearcast I discussed the massive conflict of interests at Strat's broker Beaufort Securities. Now let's take that further...if you are a Beaufort client this should concern you.

A detailed dossier posted by Hulsey Smith as part of his legal claims against AIM Casino listed Strat Aero (AERO) is in our possession and can be accessed below. It contains numerous internal emails appearing to show clear fraud by Strat as it raised money time and time again on AIM, the payment of a poster to ramp on Bulletin Boards and that the business model was just not viable. It will be humiliating both for Strat and for its broker Beaufort Securities which raised all that cash and which is involved in many of the email exchanges. Shares in Aero, appear to be utterly worthless in light of what appears here and the potential for regulatory fall out and thus must be suspended at once and the FCA must step in.

Beaufort Securities is joint broker to grossly over-ramped Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO). That means a fat retainer and also a good slug of the commission earned for the regular placings this company needs to keep paying its bloated boardroom payroll and other costs. The commission on the May 2015 fundraise at 8p would have been £1 million. Coke & hookers all round! Except for the shareholders, that is, as the share price is now 5.25p and its going to fall further as the next placing is imminent. So how do you ramp a stock ahead of a placing?

When it comes to cash, Cyan (CYAN) is the AIM equivalent of a crackhead. That is to say if shareholders pony up for a placing, the company responds with a marginal increase in sales but a huge increase in losses and then comes back for ever more. FFS cries executive chairman John Cronin in today's results, "give me some more fecking scrabble" I'm almost out. And that brings us to the £12.5 million placing which Mr Cronin was planning to do at 0.21p on May 24th when I spoiled his party with this scoop HERE.

TW Note: I do not agree with the thesis of this article at all but allowed it to run. I have, however, amended it to reflect the fact that there are no related Party transactions involving Richard Poulden as had been stated on Proactive and which the author referred to. This is a factual error for which I apologise on behalf of the website. The rest of the article - which I still disagree with - stands and reads: With all the China frauds and the dismal performance of China-focused shares exposed by Shareprophets, one begins to wonder if any link at all with China is a red flag. Take PCG Entertainment (PCGE), a Gibraltar incorporated holding company, for example.

As the self-congratulatory celebration of AIM’s twentieth birthday reaches a crescendo, the odd share trades (just coincidence we are sure) continue unabated. This morning, in a perfectly timed manner, we found out why StratMin Global Resources’ (STGR) share price mysteriously jumped 19% in the last hour and a half of trading yesterday. This morning, the company announced a strategic partnership with India’s Tirupati Carbons & Chemicals Group. What is brilliant about this example is that we’ve been here before with StratMin. Better yet, I reported the last time well-timed traders got their hands on StratMin’s price sensitive information to the FCA.

Yes you read the headline correctly. The CEO of an AIM listed company has been languishing in prison since mid-November and no-one has been told about it. Two Nomads, the non-execs, AIM Regulation you stand accused of contributing to the darkest hour of the Casino. Anyone who has bought shares since the incarceration you know who to sue. Surely heads must roll?
