The joke awards from ADVFN (AFN) are here again and yet again Brokerman Dan is honoured as the share blogger of the year. Two wins in three years. Nothing to do with him being on the board of delisted & shamed Sefton Resources together with his pals the ADVFN bosses, running an online tipsheet with the ADVFN Chairman this is all down to merit. Oh yes it is. Stop sniggering at the back! Actually it is not the most "interesting" award.

Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO) is, as you know, utterly desperate to create buying interest in its shares so that death spiral shysters Bracknor can dump £13.7 million of equity onto the market over the next year. That is not going well and so Advanced today boasts that it has paid investment analyst prostitutes for hire, Hardman, to publish a glossy note. This report is so unbelievably unbalanced that I can only assume that Hardman outsourced the work to the Bulletin Board Morons on the LSE Asylum. Folks can see through this shite and the shares are down by a penny at just 40p bid which is very bad news for Advanced as explained HERE.

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.

Shares in drowning in debt Avanti Communications slumped again on Wednesday to a new record low of 18p - the market cap is now just £27.6 million and death is imminent. As I pointed out at the weekend, its shares could be suspended on December 30th but its real worry is insolvency - it will be out of cash by January and it looks impossible to refinance. The cry is Timber! This once mighty AIM play is falling and will soon be lying as a rotting corpse on the forest floor. Where has all the money gone?

On 16 May 2016 Avanti Communications (AVN) published a third quarter trading statement in which the company's bombastic, pompous and no longer credible CEO David Williams declared "Avanti is making good progress." Shortly afterwards he proudly boasted that he had bought shares in the company at 91.25p. Today, less than four weeks later the shares have collapsed to just 53.25p to sell. On a daily basis they are being marked lower and lower. What is happening and what must Williams announce on Monday?

Paid for researcher Edison is, of course most famous as being the employer of convicted felon Champagne Charlie Gibson but it is also there to take cash for helping ramp shares in piss poor companies. And few companies could be as piss poor as Avanti Communications (AVN) run by uber bombast David "not worth a million bucks a year" Williams. But not only does Edison publish crap research on Avanti with a target price of 427p. It also does video interviews. Cripes, the bird quizzing Williams makes Zak Mir look like Jeremy Paxman on steroids. As you enjoy this shite from Edison you will note the shares are now just 59.5p as Williams seeks emergency bailout funding. Oi, taffy its time for a statement!

I am not 100% up to speed on the comings and goings at paid researcher Edison so am unaware if its star analyst The Right Hon Charlie Gibson is still on a police curfew and wearing an electronic ankle bracelet after his spot of bother trying to give a member of the working classes, who happened to be a rozzer, a damn good thrashing. On the subject of convicts (well at least those descended from them) and damn good thrashings I note that shares in Aussie law firm Slater & Gordon (SGH) are now 28 Aussie cents having been A$2.67 on 23rd September 2015 when Edison published a note proclaiming "valuation - considerable upside" and flagging triggers for a re-rating. Hmmm... so that is a fall of c90% in the seven months since that buy note - is that the worst research note of the past 12 months?

Edison is paid by companies to hire analysts such as convicted felon Champagne Charlie Gibson to produce research reports. The hooker never tells a punter that he has a small dick and Edison finds itself in the same position: just keep the client happy. And thus once again it has today served up a research report with a massively misleading title. The stock is Brady (BRY) which today served up a first half trading statement.

A brief podcast as I prepare to spend a morning on the beach with the Mrs. Then it is off to Athens. She thinks she is seeing a la dee da play. I am heading there for riot porn as the Greece Grexit crisis hots up again. Is Tsipras planning to betray the Hellenic Republic? Will he get away with it? Will Greece be booted out of the Euro anyway by the Krauts? Then a few words on the farce at Sefton as Jimmyliar Ellerton tries to make it go bankrupt via legal means. And then to the con Worthington.

Once again IT issues in Greece delay this podcast. I start by explianing why the reaction of Paul Scott and the craven deadwood press to the new national living wage proposed by George Osborne displays 100% economic illiteracy. It is simply a transfer of wealth from business to the State, the poor will gain nothing. Then onto defending David Lenigas and Andrew Bell from some of the sillier comments made by some folk and to explian why flip flop Ben Turney is again wrong on New World Oil & Gas. hats off to Paul Curtis for the silliest remark of the day as I stck the boot into Gulf Keystone and then also to the prep, pump and dump at Beowulf Mining. And finally I have another go at biotech dog ValiRx.

This has been delayed by certain IT issues here in the Hellenic Republic. I start the podcast on Greece then onto China and finally to chancellor George Osborne and his budget - the guy is a prize twat. At a company level I look at Azonto Petroleum, Monitise ( TSOA wins again!), Red Rock Resources and the fraud Jiasen.

As an experiment I tried to upload this direct, rather than via Pizza Hardman Darren Atwater, but could not work out how to upload my photo so had to use an alternative. In today's podcast I look at Greece, China (the real story of the day), Sefton, Fitbug, Phorm, Stratmin Global and fat cats. Real fat cats like Oakley not fat cats like Sir Martin Sorrell.

Happy Independence day to our American listeners. My prayers are that tomorrow Greece votes for freedom and votes Oxi! But will it? And what does that mean for the Euro and shares. I note Goldman Sachs claims that a Nai vote will see global equities rise by 10%. Hmmm, I think it misses the bear in the China shop. A few thoughts brought to you from Athens in today's podcast.

I start this podcast with a few developments on the ground here in Greece - tonight sees two mass demos which I shall be attending and reporting back on. Then it is on to Phorm, Provexis, Ubisense, Jiasen ( smoking gun located?) and the other China Norfolks, Netcall and Cenkos where conversation naturally turns to its role in the Quindell fraud and what the fallout will be.

I forgot to mention convicted felon Champagne Charlie Gibson in the podcast. Silly me. But in case you have forgotten why he is a felon go HERE and why I am going to keep mentioning it go HERE. In the actual Bearcast I look at Sirius Minerals and Monitise and then have breaking news on the unlikely hero of the day China fraud specialist Mr Paul Shackleton and bad news for investors in Gate Ventures. Then it is onto Daniel Stewart with a bad Winston Churchill parody. Then onto Speedy Hire, Lightwaverf, Independent Oil & Gas and Phorm where the chickens are coming home to roost, at last.

In today's regular podcast I decide that I am not yet bored of niggling the felon Charlie Gibson so remind you again of his naughty antics (HERE) - his colleague really should not have been such a beastly apologist for crime last night (HERE). Then onto business. China is more of an issue than Greece. Then there are the China frauds and I predict bad things for Gate, Geong and Jiasen and call on Gate to fess up to is real Nomad position. Then onto William Sinclair, Torotrak and Motive TV. And I also discuss why I am not quite so mega bearish as you might think.

Before I turn to Sefton and the wider issue of impairment (or not) on the AIM casino I am still bristling after being rubbed up the wrong way last night by an apologist for convicted felon Charlie Gibson and so until I get bored I wish to remind you of why Gibson is a felon (HERE). Then onto today's business. To give flip flop a break there are a few comments on Sefton's results and why I am still a bear. Then the issue of asset impairment and today's Kansas news vindicates a lot of what Dan Levi and I said about Jimmyliar Ellerton. But it raises the wider issue of inadequate impairment reviews on the AIM casino.

Ariana Resources (AAU) is ten years old. I really do admire its battling CEO Kerim Sener who is a really very good chap. The shares are – at 1.15p mid – very cheap and so I was delighted to attend its 10th anniversary on the AIM casino party tonight. I return very well refreshed - it has been one hell of a trip.

Who said that mining analysts were dull? When not writing the worst research notes in history, or getting smashed and then giving members of the working classes a damn good thrashing, it appears that Honourable Edward Charles d'Olier Gibson, son of the 4th Baron Ashbourne is having a spot of bother with the ladies.

Convicted felon Champagne Charlie Gibson round at prostitute researcher Edison reckons that Ariana Resources (AAU) shares – now 1.08p – are in fact worth at least 1.9p but possibly up to 2.67p. Okay, The Hon Charles may have a penchant for giving members of the working classes a damn good thrashing after he has driven back from the boozer totally sozzled but sometimes he is right. We tend to think that this may be one of those occasions. Hooray, champers and a spot of oik bashing all round.

This time the report is vaguely credible not the shocking lie-filled ramp Tangiers Petroleum (TPET) commissioned in Australia which we reported on HERE.
