Malay Junk Fusionex - to end the AIM farce - RNS at no-one is watching a clock - as £55 million of UK cash goes up in smoke

Published 22 hours ago

At 5.30 PM on the Friday before the bank holiday, no-one is watching O'Clock, Fusionex (FXI) said that it was to delist from AIM. The shares closed the day off 2p at 129p but will absolutely crater Tuesday as this stinks as we have warned you so many times - as you can see HERE. Once again we are vindicated and the City pump & promote machine must hang its head in shame.

Frontera - Why an AGM BEFORE FY numbers are released? Is the balance sheet really THAT bad?

Published 11 days ago

AIM-listed Frontera (FRR) has rather slipped since I last wrote about it last month HERE and HERE, concluding that it had a gaping black hole in its balance sheet. The shares were then trading at around 0.4p. This afternoon the shares are 0.31p in the middle (last seen) and it has announced its AGM. Just one thing: where are the full year results? The company is trying to raise c. £40 million in cash and loan settlements, and won’t show us the balance sheet? How big a RED FLAG do you want?

Stuttard’s Septic Seven May update: another one bites the dust (Taihua 'where’s the website gone now' plc)

Published 15 days ago

Marcus Stuttard, head of AIM and the oxymorons of AIM Regulation, had a specially selected and beautifully diversified portfolio of AIM stocks chosen by ShareProphets back at the end of last September so that he could demonstrate his faith in the regulatory set-up of the market he runs. Naturally, there was nothing at all wrong with any of the companies picked: they were all trading on the Casino as normal, so we were just plain wrong to be Red Flagging them all for one reason or another.  We were just so, so wrong that……

Stuttard’s Septic Seven April update: Happy Easter Mr Stuttard, you are down 55%!

Published 43 days ago

Obviously the world’s most successful growth market is tightly regulated and supervised by Marcus Stuttard’s oxymorons of AIM Regulation, who seem incapable of applying their own rules. That is why we selected a beautifully diversified portfolio of stocks which we have Red Flagged here on ShareProphets but since Mr Stuttard’s well-oiled regulatory machinery is just so good there must be nothing wrong. Nothing at all…..which is why after 200 days the portfolio is down by 55%. Oops.

Tip of the year update – Taihua collapseroonie

Published 50 days ago

I think I should rename Deputy Sheriff Towers as Smug Towers. Having offered two sells in the ShareProphets Tipfest for this year, Igas Energy (IGAS) duly crashed to bottom out at 4.5p (I’d been saying sell from 18.5p - last year’s Christmas tipfest, and then 11.625p this year). Last week came the turn of Filthy Forty play Taihua (TAIH) to do the decent thing and collapse in the wake of an entirely squeaky clean suggestion that it delist from the Casino. There’s nothing wrong here at all – move along please, nothing to see……

Milestone – AGM statement ignores the Elephant in the room: WHEN’S THE BLOODY PLACING?

Published 60 days ago

AIM-listed Milestone Group (MSG) has released an AGM statement – but it is not the voting result, it is the Chairman’s statement – to be delivered by Deborah White, who is (corporate governance Red Flag) also CEO. Of course, some of us think that there should have been a change at the helm some while back in the midst of the non-arrival of placing funds scandal which the company was, to say the least, tardy about ‘fessing up to. 

Stuttard’s Septic Seven – March update (or is that down-date?)

Published 71 days ago

Marcus Stuttard, as head of AIM, completely trusts and supports the regulatory framework of the world’s most successful growth market. As such, and ever keen to help, ShareProphets put together a beautifully diversified portfolio of AIM-listed stocks for him, so that he could demonstrate his faith in the system he oversees by investing in stocks which we have Red Flagged. How better than to put his money where his mouth is to show us that there is nothing wrong. Last time I revisited the portfolio it was down by some 23%. If that had Mr Stuttard feeling a bit queasy, he had better look away now….

Filthy Forty China New Energy – fundraising, contracts, trading update.....BARGEPOLE!

Published 74 days ago

ShareProphets AIM-China Filthy Forty play China New Energy (CNEL) updated the market on trading for FY2016. The company reported a profit at the interim stage and continued to perform well in the second half of 2016 with revenue (subject to audit) expected to be up to about RMB 72 million. There are also contracts announced totalling about RMB 80 million expected to see project completion in Q3 of this year. So all is going swimmingly – except that the company has raised more money. Clearly the profits are not turning into cash. Why?

Filthy Forty Asian Citrus – (lack of) progress on fraud allegations as Aim execution looms in four weeks

Published 90 days ago

ShareProphets AIM-China Filthy Forty carcass number 24 was taken away from Paternoster (death) Row last night in the form of Jiasen International (JSI). But yesterday the race to become number 25 hotted up as Asian Citrus Holdings (ACHL) gave an update on the lack of progress made in resolving allegations of fraud which its auditor wants to look in to before signing off overdue accounts. With four weeks to go before a one-way trip to the lethal injection room is triggered by reaching the maximum six month suspension period, progress in resolving matters seems to have been non-existent.

Red Flags at Night – NED-share-pledge-for-loan at Lobster-pot China play MiLoc and the read-across to F40 Jiasen

Published 93 days ago

5.34pm on a Friday – truly no-one-is-watching o’clock – and up pops an RNS from NEX- (the lobster-pot formerly known as ISDX) listed MiLoc Group Limited (ML.P) detailing the dealings of a NED in the company’s shares: he pledged a bunch of shares in return for a loan back in September and has now released the stock to the lender. Sound familiar? Are we thinking Equities First? So where is the RNS from September? And then there are the other companies on that NED’s CV – which include AIM-China Filthy Forty plays Jiasen (JSI), delisting on Tuesday, and already delisted (no accounts) LED Holdings (LED) as well as PAQ International (PAQ) which quietly disappeared from the Casino back in 2010.

Stuttard’s Septic Seven – February update: oh dear!

Published 99 days ago

ShareProphets has Red Flagged quite a few companies on AIM, but as we all know there is no problem of fraud on the world’s most successful growth market. This is why we created a diversified portfolio of Casino stocks for AIM head honcho and Sham Sheriff, Mr Marcus Stuttard, to invest his own cash and thereby demonstrate his complete faith in his team of oxymorons at AIM Regulation. With the portfolio heading towards the end of its fifth month, here is the latest update – and it is not a pretty sight.

Frontera – another “speeding ticket” RNS on the way? Sell.

Published 103 days ago

I think Tom Winnifrith missed a cracking entry for his Dirty Dozen AIM-listed resource stocks whose share prices might head north for no good reason. Certainly, the history of Frontera (FRR) suggests so from its share price performance over the years. Plenty of Red Flags to look at here! This morning the shares are indeed on the rampage (up 168% last seen) in the wake of a board appointment RNS. As we shall see, there seems to be little reason to celebrate that, and with one “know of no reason” RNS already issued this week, I fancy another is on the way.

AIM-China Grand Group: a bargepole investment from the province of Norfolk, or just misunderstood?

Published 108 days ago

By pure accident of timing AIM-listed China play Grand Group (GIPO) missed the cut-off for inclusion in  the ShareProphets AIM-China Filthy Forty. But it is littered with Red Flags and with the shares having collapsed from just shy of 60p a pop after a lack-of-accounts-induced suspension was lifted at the end of December to yesterday’s close at just 14.75p those Red Flags are fluttering brightly in the wind on the world’s most successful growth market. 

FRAUD Jiasen - ouzo time as Filthy Forty AIM departure #24 is booked, NED walks

Published 119 days ago

Did it jump or was it pushed? ShareProphets AIM-China Filthy Forty posterboy Jiasen (JSI), one of the Fujian four, has announced this morning that it is proposing to delist from AIM and move instead to NEX (the lobster-pot formerly known as ISDX) - just when we thought that the race to AIM departure #24 from the Filthy Forty was down to a two-horse race between Asian Citrus (ACHL)and MoneySwap (SWAP). Jiasen also announced the departure of a NED with effect from the end of February.

ShareProphets share tips of the year Number 19: Sell Taihua says Nigel Somerville

Published 149 days ago

ShareProphets AIM-China Filthy Forty play Taihua (TAIH) is, in my view, a screaming sell in view of the Red Flags highlighted on this site for months. I doubt very much whether a short position is possible with this stock, but if I were a holder I’d be running for the hills.

The Avanti Coms Annual Report Released at 2.22 - Gem number 2, rewarding greedy CEO David Williams for failure

Published 152 days ago

112 minutes after the stockmarket closed on the Friday before Christmas Avanti Communications (AVN) published a red flag strewn annual report. I have already raised one mighty red flag HERE and more will follow. But now just consider how the bombastic prick of a CEO David Williams was rewarded so handsomely for failure. Shares in Avanti are just 23p today. They were c£8 when Williams sold millions of quid worth of shares as he ramped away after the launch of Hylas 1 back in 2011.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Shall I break a lifetime habit for Aidan Earley?

I start with the kerfuffle over Aiden Earley of Worthington (WRN) infamy. I described earlier how he has libelled me but is threatening me with legal action. He has lost the plot and I am now talking to my lawyer about dealing with this irritant proactively as I explain in the podcast. Then  I discuss why it is better to travel than to arrive and a Red Flag that links Sefton (SER) and Cloudtag (CTAG)

FRAUD African Potash - now the Nomad Quits: no reason given

Published 189 days ago

Oh dear, oh dear, the problem with frauds is that eventually they run out of other people's money. And when they can't pay the bills, even morally bankrupt crony capitalist AIM advisers, decide that enough is enough and quit. And thus Cantor Fitzgerald has today said it is resigning as Nomad to the fraud African Potash (AFPO) - which is still not suing me for libel despite promising to do so on September 1st if I did not cease calling it a fraud and pay it £2,000. GOTCHA Potash: you are still a fucking FRAUD now where's that libel letter you bastards? I want to see you fraudster bitchez in Court so badly. So what's going on here. One broker summed it up brilliantly today:

Management Resource Solutions - another nightmare for AIM emerges

Published 212 days ago

Management Resource Solutions (MRS) has been a stock much ramped by the usual suspects and its shares have flown until last Thursday when they were suspended pending clarification of its financial position. The next day the CEO and founder was fired. But we can reveal that the CEO Paul Morffew claims this is a stitch up and, as a 20% shareholder is prepared to fight back. This has the potential to be another major AIM scandal given that it was less than two months ago that £2.8 million was raised at 10.5p. Nomad and co broker Northland is refusing to answer calls and its position now looks untenable.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Just how many red flags do Cloudtag morons need to see?

Published 236 days ago

This morning's article on Cloudtag (CTAG) should be yet another red flag and Lucian and I should served up one more soonish. Just how many red flags to the morons need to see? I ask this after a fellow asks me what he should do about his collapsing investment in TrakM8 (TRAK). Answer you should have listened to me when the shares were double today's price! I also look at Impact Holdings (IHUK) and then offer warnings about Blur (DOG), Rosslyn Data (RDT), Strat Aero (AERO) where, in all three cases, I'm sure it is placing ahoy and I explain why. And I look at why the Footsie is heading through 7,000 and where next.

Marcus Stuttard, Sham Sheriff of AIM: here is your specially selected AIM Portfolio. Good luck, pal.

Published 242 days ago

If Marcus Stuttard, the Sham Sheriff of AIM, really believes that the Casino is properly regulated, we think he should put some of his own money where his complacent mouth is by investing in a portfolio of companies which would demonstrate his confidence in his team of Oxymorons at AIM Regulation. We are such nice guys here at ShareProphets that we have helpfully compiled a beautifully diversified portfolio for him. We, ahem, AIM to please.

ShareProphets AIM-China Filthy Forty play Origo Partners (OPP) issued a notice of results RNS on Wednesday, telling us that its interims to June 2016 will be released on reporting deadline day of Sept 30th.

Then it is onto Optibiotix (OPTI), Minoan (MIN), Nighthawk (HAWK), Strat Aero, (AERO), Botswana Diamonds (BOD), a grammar lesson for the City's top oil analyst and finally a new golden rule for shares: the inverse relationship between the number of homophobic lunatics on a shareholder list and the long term prospects of a company. I refer of course to, drowning in red flags, Cloudtag (CTAG)

Galasys Red Flag Festival – boardroom farce, resignations & joke accounts

Published 304 days ago

Oh dear, oh dear, oh dear. Things are starting to terminal for AIM-listed Galasys (GLS). With the boardroom already at war with itself and dragging the dispute into English, Jersey and Singapore court-rooms and with qualified accounts released for FY15 now we learn that Computershare has terminated its services as company secretary and provider of the registered office. 

China fraud: Haike Chemical loses CFO. Uh Oh…..are we on a familiar path to oblivion?

Published 313 days ago

Oh dear. One of the traits of the China Frauds is that so often the precursor to the wheels coming off the subterfuge is the resignation of the finance director. And so this morning’s announcement from ShareProphets AIM-China Filthy Forty play Haike Chemical (HAIK) that its Chief Financial Officer stepped down on Monday with immediate effect “for personal reasons” is a stand-out Red Flag. So is the tardy announcement.

China FRAUD LED, useless AIM Regulation and AIM Rule 41: I despair. And where are the Interims?

Published 318 days ago

The clock is ticking for ShareProphets AIM-China Filthy Forty play LED International Holdings (LED). Actually, the clock ran down to zero last month but still AIM Rule 41 has not been invoked. AIM Regulation is well aware of the situation and has elected to do nothing: the chocolate teapots appear to be happy to flout their own rulebook in blatant fashion.

Tom Winnifrith bonus bearcast - 14 Red Flags you may have missed At Avanti Communications

I would expect the collapse in the Avanti Communications (AVN) share price to continue. You cannot say this site did not warn you. In this bonus bearcast I run through 14 red flags which apply to Avanti and which I managed to jot down in less than ten minutes. Drat! I missed an obvious 15th: the promise to move from AIM to the Main Market. It did not happen. Companies that promise the jump but don't make it (think Quindell) are always red flagged.

China fraud 40 Jiasen – drowning is cash, generating cash, profitable, PE<1, cancels dividend. Why might that be?

Published 332 days ago

Having traded as high as 6.25p just six weeks ago, shares in ShareProphets AIM-China Filthy Forty Jiasen International (JSI) have collapsed down to just 3p after it scraped over the line to release its calendar FY15 numbers on deadline day yesterday. The numbers are, of course, wonderful…which is why the company which is drowning in Red Flags (oops) cash has cancelled the full year dividend.

China Fraud LED International Holdings – FY15 (to June!) numbers but Audit comments suggest they are not worth a candle. Nomad Allenby MUST resign NOW!!

Published 340 days ago

ShareProphets AIM-China Filthy Forty play LED Holdings (LED) has finally got around to releasing its full year results to June of last year. They are audited numbers, but the Red Flags in the audit report are so shocking that surely the Nomad to this company, Allenby, has to resign on the spot. Is it really good enough for an AIM-listed company to produce numbers against which the auditor issues a disclaimer of opinion?

China FRAUD? MoneySwap, PCG Entertainment former chairman – a look back in history: the post-match analysis

Published 351 days ago

Kung Min Lin is the former chairman of ShareProphets AIM-China Filthy Forty MoneySwap (SWAP) and PCG Entertainment (PCGE) – having stepped down from both in the last six months or so.  We have been taking a look at the history of Sportswinbet (SWB) which joined the Casino in 2005 – with Kung Min Lin as Exec Director – which went on to become Power Capital Global (PCGB), with Kung Min Lin moving up to the role of Chairman. The history of both is riddled with related party transactions involving his brother, Heng Jui Lin, and his Kolarmy vehicle, and things came to a sorry end last December. Continuing with Cynical Bear’s football theme (it is, after all, the Euros!), it is time for the post-match analysis.

Filthy 40 China New Energy – placing and rampfest, BARGEPOLE!!

Published 354 days ago

ShareProphets AIM-China Filthy Forty play China New Energy (CNEL) has seen its shares heading higher in the last few sessions on the back of expectations of contract developments in Zambia. It is all still yet to be confirmed, of course, and in any case the mooted deal seems a tad incestuous to me. Oh, and it involves an Investment and Protection Agreement (IPPA) – whatever that may be (but I fancy that an IPPA is a different thing to a contract!) Well blow me down with a feather: this morning we had a placing announced – at a very healthy 25% discount to yesterday’s close.

LightwaveRF - an RNS which misleads

I have picked up LightwaveRF (LWRF) before for the way that it mangles the English language in its statements. It makes Chris Oil look like John Le Carre. Back in July 2015 I took its language mangling as an intent to gloss over the grim reality and said it was a Red Flag The shares have duly collapsed from 38p to 15p and today it serves up another RNS which is misleading. It is bullshit.

Filthy 40 Walcom FY15 numbers: Red Flags abound - but who for, Mr Stuttard?

Published 388 days ago

Despite being part of the ShareProphets AIM-China Filthy Forty, Walcom (WALG) has rather slipped under the radar. Our apologies for this oversight are due. Yesterday the company released FY15 results. I have no idea what the company does, but the numbers presented seem to raise rather a lot of Red Flags. But are they fluttering for the company or for the Sham Sheriff and head of the oxymorons at AIM Regulation, Mr Marcus Stuttard?

Will the birth of Prince be celebrated in two hundred years or his death in 400. I start with a reflection on a chat with my father. Then it is onto the first red flag at African Potash (AFPO) and why folks should have run a mile back then. Finally I point out after today's bombshell why folks are looking at valuing all the Horse Hill stocks, but especially UK Oil & Gas (UKOG) in just the wrong way altogether.

Goldenport – delisting leaves shareholders dead in the water

Published 402 days ago

It will come as no surprise to readers of ShareProphets that main market listed Goldenport Holdings (GPRT) is to leave the LSE, as announced this morning. Shareholders are set to lose everything just as predicted (see HERE, HERE, HERE and HERE) but amazingly the shares are still trading pro tem. You can still get your bad of crisps….or perhaps just a couple of penny chews, for the shares have collapsed (so far) by 70% today, to 1.5p mid. So there is another 1.5p to go….

I have been very critical of AIM-listed Cloudbuy (CBUY) of late, but in fairness there is much to praise after the company published on its website all the documentation in relation to the funding package announced with Mr Sella on 24 March 2016. It is a model of transparency, and the answers to my questions (HERE) are all to be found. The paperwork is HERE.  Other AIM-listed companies should take note.

Cloudbuy – kitchen sink RNS. Buy or Bargepole? Part 1, reward for failure

Published 429 days ago

Thursday afternoon saw a packed RNS released by beleaguered AIM-listed Cloudbuy (CBUY) detailing all manner of news – far too much to cover in one article. I suppose that you can’t quite describe 3.32pm as no-one-is-watching o’clock, although it was less than an hour before the city knocked off for the Easter recess and one might imagine that most were packing their bags by then. Let’s start with the options.

Urban & Civic – board changes and the stench of EFH that just won’t go away

Published 430 days ago

Fully listed Urban and Civic (UANC) has announced a series of board changes. It looks like a pretty comprehensive round of musical chairs and from a corporate governance point of view it is good to see the role of CEO and Chairman being split. But a spot of PR spin caught my eye which sticks in the craw, as the shadow of Mr Robert Adair’s dealings with Equities First Holdings LLC is cast.

Telecom Plus – is this Red Flag anything to worry about?

Published 469 days ago

Shares in fully listed Telecom Plus (TEP) seem to have fallen off a bit a cliff over the last few weeks. I’ve not seen anything terrible in the way of RNSs to explain it and although falls in the wider market would contribute to weakness a 20% drop seems hefty. But I did turn up something at Companies House which I think the company should explain.

F40 China New Energy on the slide as the Red Flags pile up

Published 496 days ago

Just three weeks ago, during the no-one-is-watching fortnight of Christmas and New Year, ShareProphets AIM-China Filthy Forty play China New Energy (CNEL) completed a keep-the-lights-on placing in what I wondered was the fastest pump and dump in history. It was, in my view, a disgraceful affair: announce what appears to be a significant contract to send the shares rocketing higher (it did) and then 39 minutes later announce a massively discounted placing into the rise. The grateful company brought in some meter money (just £200,000 before expenses) but the new shares issued represented 3.28% of the enlarged capital. Surely that is a notifiable holding?

Back in the UK I look at Gulf Keystone (GKP), African Potash (AFPO) and LGO Energy (LGO)

Inspirit – more Companies House issues, more on that change of Auditor, more Red Flags.

Published 509 days ago

AIM-listed Inspirit Energy Holdings plc (INSP) has confirmed that its change of auditor was due to the resignation of PKF Littlejohn. There is a statement in FY15 accounts that the auditor was appointed during the year following the resignation of PKF Littlejohn LLP. But that means that PKF resigned during the year to way back in June 2015. When an auditor resigns there is supposed to be a filing to Companies House to that effect, with an accompanying letter from the retiring auditor giving the circumstances relating to the resignation, or a statement that there is nothing to be brought to the attention of the members or creditors of the company. Those are supposed to be filed to Companies House within fourteen days. Here we are more than six months later: where are they?

Quite what happens next remains to be seen, but as things stand shareholders cannot be certain who is actually running the company. According to AIM, Galasys’ country of operation is China. It is a holding company registered in Jersey, with its main assets rolled up into a BVI vehicle.

Then it is Golden Saint Resources (GSR) where I also try to help out hapless compliance officer the Northern Slum refugee Richard "Gollum" Gill by explaining the rules about a financial promotion.  I missed out FastJet (FJET) - down on weak passenger data, can anyone remember anyone involved in its IPO who might be a red flag? Then I turn my attention to David Lenigas, the boiler room and Inspirit (INSP).

Mobile Streams – amendments to full-year results announcement, but still ridiculously spun

Published 593 days ago

From 4.75p before a 12th October results announcement, shares in Mobile Streams (MOS) closed at 17.375p yesterday. Today the company has announced a number of amendments to the 12th October “Audited Final Results” announcement…

Following trading update disappointment from AIM-listed Regenersis plc a few months ago, I noted that it suggested the value of checking our such short positions updates – with there continuously having been a disclosed short position in Regenersis since November. Since August there has been such a position in Telit (TCM) and now…

Vmoto – yet another red flag from a China AIM casino joke

Red Flags at Night - Ultima Networks Interims: when’s the placing?

Published 613 days ago

Issuing interims at no-one-is-watching o’clock this evening (at 5.11pm) is AIM-listed Ultima Networks (UTN). A few hum drum bits and pieces – turnover down about 10% and not a lot of cash in the bank didn’t make particularly happy reading. But surely not bad enough to slip out the statement after-hours, was it?

Golden Saint Resources – after-hours Interims. What a total POS.

Published 615 days ago

Words fail to convey the contempt with which I read yesterday's after-hours interims statement issued by AIM Cesspit poster boy Golden Saint Resources (GSR) - a company that is almost certainly insolvent, numbers don't lie. It almost matches the contempt with which the management of this POS treats its own shareholders.

Imaginatik plc – loan from director necessary, another red flag ahoy!

On 10th September Rob Terry and his Quob Park Estate vehicle took their shareholding in Imaginatik plc (IMTK) up to more than 14% and, based on his track record, it is not a surprise to see the shares currently on biggest fallers lists – down approaching 13% presently today to 6.75p. This follows the company’s announcement of a “Director Loan”

Red Flags at Night – Univision Engineering Limited (awful) Final Results

Published 626 days ago

AIM-listed Univision Engineering Limited (UVEL) issued its full year results for the year to the end of Mar 2015 at no-one-is-watching o’clock, 5.33pm last night. That is enough of a Red Flag already, but given the recent focus of this website on AIM-China set-ups, I see that this company is registered in Hong Kong. Oh dear….

Sefton – management delivers stark warning of delisting ahead of EGM

Published 627 days ago

As indicated HERE in Tom Winnifrith’s comic snipe at the unfolding Greek Tragedy that is AIM-listed (for now) Sefton Resources (SER), things are getting serious. Very serious. Shareholders, however small their holdings may be, have a decision to make and a vote to cast. Get it wrong or ignore it and it could be a total wipe-out. Here is why.

AIM-China Filthy40 member Aquatic Foods Interims fail to reassure

Published 627 days ago

One of the problems that AIM-listed China stocks have at the moment is that nobody believes them. Nobody believes the claimed cash-piles or profits. This is amply demonstrated by the stock-market histoire of Aquatic Foods (AFG), a member of the ShareProphets AIM-China Filthy Forty. To remind you, it listed in just February of this year at 70p per share, to give it a market capitalisation of £79.3 million. Yet the shares fell steadily to the current 29p. Today saw Interims to the end of June 2015. Scratch the surface, and the Red Flags are all too apparent.

Red Flags at Night: Goldenport Holdings Inc Interims and offer talks terminated

A bank holiday weekend: what better time is there than 6.29pm on Friday night to slip out bad news?! And so we come to fully listed Goldenport Holdings Inc (GPRT) which did exactly that, in the form of its interims. But it was not just that this came at no-one-is-watching o’clock, there were a few other matters which anyone holding this stock might want to pay attention to – if they are not blinded by subterfuge.

ShareProphets Filthy Forty: Asia Ceramics and its bizarre lending arrangements with the boss

Published 640 days ago

ShareProphets AIM-China Filthy Forty member and Jersey-registered Asia Ceramics Holdings (ACHP) recently featured HERE in the wake of its after-hours (and Red Flag riddled) full year 2014 results. What emerged was a large market capitalisation relative to (almost) non-existent earnings. But there was also a long string of related party transactions, and a CEO who appeared to be running businesses in China doing the same thing as Asia Ceramics does…in China. But what catches the eye now is an RNS on Tuesday of this week which describes a very peculiar set of loan agreements between CEO Dr Pu and the company.

ShareProphets RNS Translation Service: Asia Wealth ‘fesses up to another farcical Roland Fatty Cornish foul-up

ISDX listed Asia Wealth Group Holdings Limited (AWLP) issued THIS RNS on Thursday of this week. Asia Wealth (Orwellian misnomer if ever there was) is a company which is represented by the much tainted Roland “Fatty” Cornish at Beaumont Cornish as Corporate Adviser (the ISDX equivalent of a Nomad for AIM companies). Anyone following the trials and tribulations of AIM’s worst Nomad (surely even surpassing the valiant efforts of ZAI Corporate Finance for that unsavoury crown) will appreciate that there has been a heavy case-load of self-inflicted disasters and you might have thought that this would persuade a fellow to be just a tad more careful. Not a bit of it - over to the ShareProphets RNS Translation Service (original in bold):

Red Flags at Night: Trafalgar New Homes - results with a little help from the ShareProphets Translation Service

Published 681 days ago

Quite how a house builder manages to lose money in the current environment is a mystery to me. For the second consecutive year, £1.8 million market cap AIM tiddler Trafalgar New Homes plc (TRAF) has done just that, reporting a doubled £620,000 loss for the year (0.26p per share, a third of the bid price) to 31 Mar 2015 at no-one-is-watching o’clock on Friday (at 5.23pm). The ShareProphets RNS Translation Service has had a field day with the Chairman’s statement. Original in Bold.

Photos & video from Greece: Victory Rally Syntagma Square – when Oxi went from blue to red

Published 693 days ago

On Friday before the Greek referendum Syntagma square was awash with blue and white Greek flags and white Oxi flags. This was not about party politics, Alex Tsipras and Syriza wanted you to vote Oxi as it was your patriotic call. I happen to agree with that. Pro tem all Greeks could put party aside and vote Oxi to vote for Greece.  Last night something odd happened after the polls closed: Oxi turned from blue to red.

Red Flags at Night…..Regal Petroleum after-hours results RNS

I have some sympathy for the board of Regal Petroleum (RPT) given that its area of operation is in the Ukraine. I sense that they are doing their best to manage the company in the most difficult of situations, but for investors the RNSs released yesterday are very worrying. Cash is trapped in a rapidly depreciating currency and the risks here are massive.

Friday After-Hours RNSs: Rosslyn and Powerfilm (Red Flags at night, shareholders’ fright)

Edison is paid to puff Tungsten but cannot bring itself to do so, so writes garbage - SELL

Published 742 days ago

Paid for researcher Edison is paid by companies to produce notes. The hooker never tells her client how small his cock is she just gets on with it and thus Edison is always looking on the bright side. But in its utterly misleading note on Tungsten (TUNG) out today, even the rent-boy of the research world cannot bring itself to say buy. That is a pretty big Red Flag.

Rurelec plc – Red Flags at Night, Shareholders’ fright

Published 745 days ago

It is always worth a gander through the after-hours RNSs to see what is being slipped out when no-one is looking. It is a common way for companies – especially those on the AIM Cesspit – to try to hide bad news from their shareholders. It simply doesn’t work, so why they bother is beyond me. But it is an immediate Red Flag. And that brings me to Rurelec plc (RUR). On Tuesday at 4.30pm – bang on market closing time - it released an RNS entitled ‘Extension of Radix Facility Agreement’. Gosh what an exciting life I lead: I just had to take a look…

Quindell – Oh Dear – the CCJs start – massive cash red flag

Published 820 days ago

Managing a company that has run out of cash is hard. You must delay paying bills until the last possible moment, keep the banks happy, try to generate cash however but in the end something cracks. If like Quenron you have net debt and are burning cash, you can stretch your average payment terms out to a disgraceful 122 days (and climbing) but in the end someone you owe money to takes you to court and gets a County Court Judgement (CCJ) against you. For investors this is a massive red flag.

Today they were sold for $1.4 million. This Bearcast covers the role of Greg Smith in the range tragedy, questions the value of Range's Trinidad assets, points out how Pete Landau misledinvestors and calls on the FCA to investigate Landau for market abuse and to ban him as a director of AIM Casino listed companies. It covers the legal threats I received from him and the spineless approach of other publishers that caused me to set up ShareProphets.

At RMPC we normally pay staff in the last week of the month but in December we will pay my heroic colleagues on the 15th or thereabouts. Nearly all companies pay staff early in the festive month so that they can pay for the vile consumerist event that Christmas has become. I am sure Quindell staff were paid early in 2013 as the company had just completed a £200 million placing. But what about 2014?

Reader Comment of the day: TurboMuncher on the Quindell cash Crisis

Published 957 days ago

It is abundantly clear that Quenron (QPP) now faces a cash crisis of monumental proportions. I am sure that the FCA is now monitoring its Regulatory capital position with extreme concern. And if you want to know what happens when this becomes an issue have a look at Daniel Stewart HERE. I flagged up earlier today, one way in which Quenron is hiding this time bomb from investors – by delaying salary payments HERE – but the other obvious way is by not paying its bills, something you would not be able to gauge from the cobblers in its trading statement of Monday. But poster TurboMubcher has the data and puts it into context for you in an excellent post:

Quindell Will Again Test Recent Lows

Published 1006 days ago

Quindell’s (QPP) Interims duly arrived last Thursday and as is so often the case with this company when it attempts to reassure the market, yet more concerns were raised.  The share price has now lost all the gains in the run up to the announcement and it would not surprise me if they test the recent 140p low in pretty short order. And the ultimate target is a tiny fraction of that.

Quindell & Himex: how many shares in itself has Quindell sold this time? And More.

At the same time certain other related businesses were lobbed into the pot and all in all it cost The Innovation Group c£60 million all in goodwill which was all written off within a year. Cosy was a cosy deal for some but not for Rob Terry believers – as explained HERE. Will it be different this time? I now refer you to the 2014 interims from Quindell and the year to March 2013 results for Himex which you can see HERE. Red Flags for lunch anyone?

I only ask because of a revelation regarding Quindell flogging shares it issued to itself in today’s interims. That stands out but what about those accruals? Boy oh boy.

Skillwise, the shelf company with no assets bought by Quindell from (I think Mark Ford) for £2.76 million in cash on August 30th 2013 has finally appointed some directors (Rob Terry and Laurence Moose). And it has extended its year end. So I guess some revenues will be put through it and it will not be struck off. But while we are on the subject of Mark Ford, let’s move onto BE Insulation Ltd.

PLCs that are Good Investments Do not issue an RNS at 5.52 PM

US Oil & Gas (USOP) once issued an RNS at 10 PM on a Friday – that Liam Mcgrattan is a comic genius. But he serves to demonstrate a valid point: if a company starts issuing RNS statements well after 4.30 PM this is a red flag that you should not be invested. Not a reason on its own but the sort of red flag that catches the eye.

When a company issues an RNS which is frankly incredible – that is to say unbelievable on the known facts – that should be a massive Red Flag moment. If that company has a long record of missing targets and burning cash and is also drowning in debt then it is a stinking sell. And that brings me to Avanti Communications (AVN) up at 253p after a contract win announced today. Hmmmmm.
