After languishing unloved for a while in the low sixties, shares in Optibiotix (OPTI) are really steaming ahead and are now 78p to buy. We hope you bought in the low sixties as we repeatedly urged. If not it is not too late. The shares are a buy at up to 80p and I expect to be advising you to sell at WELL OVER 100p by Easter. So what has happened?

Nomad Cairn has not resigned as adviser to Cloudtag (CTAG) even though it has lied to investors on a serial basis and committed Securities fraud. Cairn's reputation is thus in tatters. It thus begs the question of how any of its other clients are frauds, how many are simply not investment grade material and how many of the few good clients will want to be associated with the disgraced Nomad for much longer as it will not help their share prices to be linked to this rotten, stinking adviser. The clients are listed below by AIM or ISDX category.

I am asked by a couple of readers whether RMPC is buying more Optibiotix (OPTI) or selling as the shares have fallen back to 31p from c40p. As we do not follow this as an official tip I just pen a couple of thoughts.

The largest holding that Real Man has in its portfolio is Optibiotix (OPTI). At 34.5p we are, quite amazingly, looking at a 300% profit (plus warrants) on our initial investment. The size of the holding is, I admit, a trifle frightening as are the gains. But although we have advised readers to bank gains we are not doing that ourselves. Are we mad? I think not.

Lets be upfront, RMPC owns this shares and since I often say that all brokers notes are worthless piffle I cannot make an exception here. However broker Hybridan has initiated its coverage of Optibiotix (OPTI) with a very bullish assessment indeed.

Last week Optibiotix (OPTI) announced that it had appointed three men in white coats to its Scientific Advisory board. We are sure that Professor Patrice D Cani, Professor Jens Walter and Steven Morrison are all good chaps but it is not the sort of news that tends to get investors that excited.

Mark Howitt has today penned an article slating writers who write about shares they do not own. He is a young man, naïve of the ways of the world and – with respect – an amateur talking out of his arse and here is why.

As I noted in my ten macro themes for 2015 article (HERE) the analysis that Steve Moore and I serve up is bottom up – that is to say company specific – not so much macro driven. But the odd macro think session establishes useful tramlines for the investment process. My first, second and third share tips for 2015 are already live and so onto Number 4.

Not flinching once despite threatening lawyer’s letters, wholesale harassment abuse and even death threats Tom Winnifrith has over the past six months clearly exposed the fraud and lies at the heart of the Quindell (QPP) soufflé.

I tipped Optibiotix (OPTI) at 10p just three weeks ago and the shares are now 21p. Normally I’d say sell the lot and thanks for a 110% gain but on this occasion…

We tipped shares in Optiobiotix (LSE:OPTI) just a few months ago at a 9p offer. Knock me down with a feather they closed Friday at 20.75p-21.25p. But the fun is not over yet. We urged you strongly a week ago to buy at up to our limit buy price of 15p as the last chance to get in cheap. We hope that advice was taken even if you ignored the original tip.

Heck, I am biased, we own these shares, but I thought that the presentation by Steve O'Hara and Adam Reynolds of Optiobiotix (OPTI) at the second ShareProphets seminar was pretty compelling. I certainly view the shares as cheap on the basis of what I heard. To ensure that you get priority booking for future seminars (the next one is on 27 October ) and features myself, Amanda van Dyke of Bluebird Merchant Ventures, Rob Proctor of Audioboo and Cathal Friel of Fastnet Oil & Gas register HERE.

Fifty folks will from 6 PM on the 29th be enjoying free pizza and wine in Clerkenwell and listening to presentations by Premaitha, Fox Marble and Anglo African Agriculture and to one by me on 10 ways that AIM companies mislead investors by inflating profits. I shall illustrate my talk with real examples. The next talk is on 19th October and they continue every two weeks thereafter.

I am feeling rather virtuous today. Just a Greek salad and a coke to eat and I have already done one hour’s manual labour in the fields. I am just off for another stint now. I am pretty sure that my Body Mass Index is back in the “normal” range and as someone with diabetes – thanks to eating and drinking too much – that is good news. I’m heading the right way. But the rest of the world is not.
