I haven’t been following BOS Global (BOS) that closely since the comedy gold video I commented on HERE but note the share price has increased quite nicely in recent months, much to my surprise. I noted, however, an acquisition announced yesterday which included the one thing that annoys me more than any other on AIM, the spoof made-up share price for equity issued as consideration for acquisitions. Let me explain.

In the main bearcast today I touch on the Cloudtag (CTAG) fraud but that is really covered in its own bearcast HERE. I do look at RapidCloud which was suspended today and will lose its AIM listing in a month. Who warned you that this would face a "terminal conclusion" 149 days ago? Was it PR wankers Walbrook or Nomad WH Ireland or savants on the LSE Asylum? Er no, it was me HERE. I then look at Challenger (CHAL) a zero in waiting, Iofina (IOF) and IGAS (IGAS) both of which should also be zeros. I commend today's excellent piece from Nigel, the Deputy Sheriff of AIM, on the Servision (SEV) scandal HERE. I take Nomad Allenby to task for failing to comment on this and for allowing Servision to mislead mug punters. AGAIN. Finally I take apart overvalued ramp Wey Education (WEY). Its shares are up 33% today. That is a ramp not a reflection of value.

My thinking remains as before: if you hold it is time to look skywards, be thankful and sell.

In September I used EVR Holdings (EVRH) as a case study in ‘How to make money out of a Chris Akers stock’ and suggested that it could rise from around 3p and wouldn’t be surprised to seeing it hit 6p, but would perhaps get out then.

And so today we have another revelation, this time from Nigel, showing how the rotters at Cloudtag (CTAG) have once again lied to investors in an RNS. I say once again because we have now lost track of the number of times this has happened. And the lies have been told with deliberate purpose: to pump the share price to allow both insiders and those backing placing after placing to dump stock at inflated prices. This is fraud. Yet Nomad Cairn continues to sign off on these lies issued via RNS, to tolerate CEO Amit lying in podcasts and videos to ramp the shares.

AIM casino cash munching machine Phorm (PHRM) today served up an “operational update” which is a load of bullshit in itself but what that means is that a placing will happen within days. Just look at the pattern.

And that meas that to win the contest you have to show a tweet which is either criminal or just mindless ramping that beats this one from market abuser Chris Oil.

Now my interest has been reignited in the Sefton Resources (SER) story, I’ve been pursuing various investigative leads and have uncovered something pretty surprising. It look very much like Chief Financial Officer Raylene Whitford is a genuinely decent person, who is doing her level best to save this company. Unlike certain previous executives, Miss Whitford is not a serial market abuser, intent solely on lining her pockets at the expense of Sefton’s shareholders.

In the long run a share price will reflect the NPV of future cashflows of a given company. In the short term it can go anywhere. Stocks can whizz higher purely based on aggressive stock promotion, .e ramping. So who would your ramping dream team be? As I sit having a coffee waiting for my car to get an MOT I have put together my own starting five.

This morning’s “Clarification of Press Comment” from UK Oil & Gas (UKOG), and the other companies participating in Horse Hill, heaps shame on all involved in last Thursday’s monumental ramp. At ShareProphets, we were the first to criticise the BBC, ITV, Sky News and all the other broadcasters, who leapt so obediently onto this propaganda bandwagon, for their deeply misleading coverage. Hundreds, if not thousands, of private investors bought stocks in the Horse Hill nags, thanks to the appalling laziness of too many journalists. Within 24 hours, most of these ordinary people were facing losses of upwards of 35% on their “investments”. This disgraceful episode illustrates once again why AIM is in such desperate need of comprehensive reform.

For the benefit of one reader in particular this podcast explains the difference between a share tip and a ramp, it explains pump and dump, it looks back to historic cases such as the City Slickers and explains why Bulletin Board Morons use the words differently to normal human beings.

I have noted before on a number of occasions that Volex is obsessed with spin and share price promotion but that its market cap (£59 million at 65p) is just a total Rum and coke. A grotesquely misleading RNS today only highlights the big problem with this enterprise: (lack of) cash generation.

I watched the trade in Alba Mineral Resources (ALBA) last Thursday and Friday in a state of bemused bewilderment. For the life of me, I just could not understand what was encouraging buyers to push this company’s stock price higher. Thursday’s announcement of Alba’s acquisition of Regency Mines’ (RGM) stake in Horse Hill gave a crystal clear warning that the company would place at 0.25p, to help pay for this transaction. Today Alba did precisely this. What on earth possessed people to buy shares at 0.4p and above is a mystery to me, but it does suggest one thing. There will be buyers for the next Horse Hill ramp.

Yesterday, HERE, I showed that a piece of market data which was being totally misrepresented at loon central as the basis of the mother of all ramparoonies for Tern (TERN) was, in fact, incorrect. However, Tern and its advisers, rather than correct the market’s wrong perception, had seen fit to conduct a Placing on the back of the incredible rise in Tern’s shares. Well, it is now confirmed that the data upon which the ramp was based has been corrected.

There are three reasons why IGAS (IGAS) shares are a screaming short at 56p. One is that the shale bubble is set to burst. Greed will turn to revulsion and any company that has used the word shale in release after release to ramp its shares in the good times will now suffer the backlash. The second is Andrew Austin, the CEO. He is still not telling the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth on his Equities First Holdings LLC dodgy share trades. That makes the stock uninvestable until he fesses up and quits. It is only a matter of time. The third...

Another day and another “contract win” announced by Avanti Communications (AVN) – natch the value is undisclosed. Friday’s Victor Meldrew “contract win” was – as I explained HERE – very peculiar indeed. And the directors are all making small share purchases. Its ramp ramp ramp time because Avanti desperately needs to do a placing.

I flagged up 6 days ago on 10th June that Concha (CHA) was at 2.18p the most ramped and overvalue stock on AIM. The shares are now 1.55p and the stock remains grotesquely overvalued, a point reinforced by a statement on 11th June by chairman Chris Akers who really is a prize bullshitter.

Concha (CHA) is quite possibly the biggest ramp on AIM. I Know that my pal Nigel Wray owns 10% but, sorry mate, the current valuation is just ludicrous.
