You will remember the case of poor Mr Bagot, an elderly client of WH Ireland (WHI) who had his life saving stuffed into a range of utterly inappropriate penny stocks, many of them corporate clients. Mr Bagot has got a bit of his money back but not most. He fights on. Mr Bagot has this update:

Hello Share Swappers. We are now living in even scarier times than usual in Shareland. What with Brexit, Big Donald, a possible new cold war, inflation and growing world debt. We are also being frightened witless by the continuing shocking revelations by Uncle Tom and his top team of investigators. If I were running a shaky company, especially one on AIM, I would not be sleeping - ever.

Hello Share Scrappers. One of my favourite penny shares is not every body’s cup of tea. I keep seeing IQE (IQE) on a list of most-shorted shares, you know the one that appears from time to time on this wondrous website.

Scumbag brokers WH Ireland (WHI) hosted a table at last night’s black tie AIM awards. What with the taxis, champagne on top, etc. that must have cost it £3000+ but presumably it did not invite Essex Pensioner Mr Bagot, a man whose life savings were trashed by its former senior employee John Molyneux (see HERE)

Over the past two weeks we have unearthed details of how senior WH Ireland (WHI) Stockbroker John Molyneux (now suddenly retired) systematically stiffed those with discretionary accounts into duff penny stocks, usually corporate clients. So far one 78 year old who lost c£330,000 has been given compensation of £150,000 – but this may be the tip of the iceberg. So I have written to Business Secretary Sajid Javid asking him to intervene urgently.

Hello Share Rattlers. There are some shares, dear chums, which we wish we’d never heard about. I bought stock in Ross Group (RGP), an electrical set-up, 21 years ago. They were 20p each then. What are they today? - less than one and half pence each.

Hello Share Scribblers. It is the wisest thing you can do with penny shares. If one of your cheeps rises by an awful lot in a day, you must hover over the sell button.

Hello Share Splashers. I’ve been trying to de-clutter my over-stuffed home by selling at a car boot sales. After three hours of just sitting on my car seat, I made an easy 60 quid. All very enjoyable in the sunshine.

Hello Share Shooters. While this Greek farrago continues to make investments in the Footsie and mid cap range a bit scary, I’ll continue with my trilogy on how to handle shares, which are not likely to be affected by the Euro crisis. So I make a few more observations about the best way to dabble in penny shares.

Hello Share Scratchers. As the Footsie is blighted at the mo by the Greek tragedy, it’s right that we should turn our attention to penny shares. These blighters, as we all know, can turn into multi-baggers whereas Footsie gains can’t. They can however sink without trace a lot more easily, because their valuations are so near the floor anyway.

The Summertime Blues seems to have hit shares again. That old adage about going away in May is no longer true. But the fact remains that the old share game goes off the boil between June and August.

We wish life was that easy. Yes our last tip was a winner - it was the infamous New World Oil & Gas - we got in and out at the right time and made a killing for our readers. It happens now and again in the world of penny shares. Even we did not think that tip would work out quite as well - our targetted gain was just 50%!

Given an ongoing addiction to the bulletin board stocks and the penny shares area in general, it takes a lot for me to stray to more sedate situations where perhaps the trading volumes are subdued. However, Thorntons (THT) is currently in focus as it would appear that we have a big bullish daily chart.

Hello Share Pootlers. It’s nearly always the same when the big companies put on a huge spurt, the penny shares suffer. Not all of them, of course, but there is a definite downward drag.

Hello Share Munchers. I’ve been getting a little bit nervous over the many penny shares I hold. Should I be waving bye, bye to some of my more risky stocks? Normally, I shrug off such spooky feelings, unless I have good reason to believe a penny dreadful is indeed dreadful.

Hello Share Chisellers. It's almost too late. And yet it can make a big difference. I'm talking about the annual job of selling winners and losers over the year to try and balance the books and avoid paying too much capital gains tax on our share profits.

The token deluded lefty on this website, Comrade Malcolm Stacey is taking a well-earned break on a desert safari searching for the mythical money tree which he and his fellow lefties both worship and believe in. On day 3 we have heard from our Guardian reading friend that there are some very poor people wandering around the desert with only a tent to their name. Malcolm thinks that this is all down to the wicked Bedroom Tax imposed by the Evil Tories back in the UK. Once again he blames Thatcher! In his absence we bring you a few words from his timeless classic, The Armchair Tycoon.

As well as choosing different sectors of the market in which to buy your shares, really prudent investors scatter their funds over a large number of companies. If you rely on just four enterprises and one collapses, then it's serious. If you have 20 share certificates with different names at the top, big losses posted by two or three companies won't send you looking for an outside ledge on a tall building. Some brokers urge their clients to buy an interest in just 10 businesses. They argue that this is a nice manageable group and that it's hard to keep track of any more.

Hello Share Peddlars. Trading shares is a funny old business. Sometimes, I am well up on my dealing activities. And at other times, I go around kicking the kids because the old stocks are, well, in the stocks.

Beginners think these are equities priced at one penny each. That’s been known. But it simply means a cheap share, priced at less than 80p. They usually belong to companies which have skated on thin ice and haven't yet found a ladder to escape the pond. Some analysts scathingly refer to them as 'penny dreadfuls’.

Howdy Share Fans. There are lots of crucial choices we have to make as share shifters. All of them are brain-hurters. Perhaps the worst of them is: how long should we hang on to a penny share, which has just stormed into life?

Hello Share twitchers. I love trading penny shares. In and out, in and out, that’s the way to do it. Of course, the normally big spreads are a nuisance. But the rewards when a penny hits the red hot trail can be stunning.

Hello Share Seekers: I'm off to a birthday party in the Smoke to meet people I've not seen for 20 years. Wonder what they look like now? Lots of bald patches and less-than-trim figures I should imagine. A bit like shares you've held a long time, lots of unattractive changes can take over the year. I will be a lot gladder to see my old colleagues than be reminded of shares which have let me down over the years – and most of these bad memories are penny shares I kept too long.
