More Red Flags at BNN Technology

Published 7 days ago

BNN Technology (BNN) published its Annual Report last week along with an update on its current cash position and the appointment of a new Non-Exec Chairman. The share price has rallied 6% but is still shy of the 80p at which broker Mirabaud recently raised £25 million - and, looking through the bluster, there are some serious issues that holders might care to consider.

Mercantile Ports & Logistics - slam dunk sell (target 0p) as Nomad Cenkos (again) brings AIM into disrepute

Published 9 days ago

Nomad Cenkos was repeatedly warned by myself and others about the fraud at Quindell (QPP). It banked fees of more than £12 million and did nothing to stop the wrongdoing. In doing so it brought AIM into massive disrepute. Now there is evidence that it is turning a blind eye to horrific red flags at Mercantile Ports & Logistics, which at 8.5p is capitalised at £32 million. My target price is 0p but what the hell is Cenkos playing at? I break my break to deal with the errant Nomad - I have a score to settle here since some of the money it raised for the Quenron fraud was used to harass me with fascist lawyers letters..

Advanced Oncotherapy – another SPOOOOOOOOOF and a screwed up RNS: KEEP SELLING

Published 25 days ago

It seems that AIM-listed Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO) is so desperate to get out any good news it can that it rushed out an RNS yesterday morning to notify the market of director buying and got the numbers wrong. Oops. Great work in checking and verifying there by Nomad Stockdale Securities.

The Telit Sea of Red Flags

Published 40 days ago

Telit Communications (TCM) is still the number one most shorted share on AIM, even after releasing final results last Monday that were welcomed by the market and saw the shares soar 14.6% to their peak of 360p on the day.  But with 10.5% of the stock out on loan to the alleged “smartest guys in the City” you have to ask yourself “What exactly am I missing?”  So began my thought process as I sat down to dissect the accounts.  Here are some quick thoughts:

China FRAUD Aquatic Foods Q4 update: drowning in a sea of Red Flags

Published 41 days ago

ShareProphets AIM-China Filthy Forty purveyor of all things fishy, Aquatic Foods (AFG), has updated on 2016 Q4 trading this morning. In a statement plastered with Red Flags it would appear that the company is nearing the final chapter of the China Norfolk playbook as we are warned that there has been a spot of bother getting cash out of China. Is it bye-bye to the dividend? 

It took a year but my "insanity" call on Concha 100% validated

Published 49 days ago

Almost exactly a year ago, investment vehicle Concha (CHA) spunked £4 million on a 0.43% stake in new media darling Ve Interactive a deal and valuation that I branded as "insane". Hey ho, today's Sunday Telegraph suggests that the Sheriff of AIM is right once again.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: from Jewish Vlachs to Avanti Coms - a business that can never ever work so is toast

Published 56 days ago

I answer an email from a reader who reckons the Vlachs, (world's greatest living expert, or so he says, Dr TJ Winnifrith), are really Jews and that opens up a wider issue of Jewish settlements in Greece. Then the main issue of the podcast, why Avanti Communications (AVN) will go to Zero? Quite simply its business model is flawed. There are other red flags to consider but I strike at the crux of the matter.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast - the lunacy of PC Aviva & 3 Stockmarket Red Flags

Published 70 days ago

In today's podcast I look at the new rules Aviva is implemententing in the name of gender equality. They are not needed and are bad news for all concerned. It is yet another sign of how Britain is losing the plot on capitalism. I then offer up three clear signs that we are at a market top and why it pays to be very wary.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Ouzo time for me but a bad bathtime for an AIM CEO tonight

Published 74 days ago

The ouzo refers to the latest crushing blow for snakeoil salesman Darren Winters. This man has claimed to have fleeced, sorry trained, 500,000 Britons yet still the deadwood press fail to report on our takedown of the charlatan. Pathetic. The bathtime refers to the CEO of Tracsis (TRCS) who claims to listen to bearcast in his bath. I comment on today's trading update. Then it is onto China fraud Jiasen (JSI) and its latest bollocks news signed off by low life Nomad Cairn Financial. And then after an en passant look at Polemos (PLMO) I take a very detailed look at Blenheim Natural Resources (BNR) which is overvalued hype with a bushel of red flags thrown in for good measure. I advise my pal Big Dave Lenigas to take profits and sell and others to do likewise.

Filthy Forty Taihua – Another letter to AIM Regulation: still no website, still no buy-back, still no update on related party receivables.

Published 110 days ago

ShareProphets Aim-China Filthy Forty play Taihua (TAIH) is having a giraffe. The buy-back announced last August, to be paid for from an Open Offer long since completed hasn’t happened. There has been no update on the matter since the end of September. The accounting matters over related party receivables which the company, in its FY15 Annual Report promised an update on has seen no further comment. The website has disappeared, meaning that the company is in breach of AIM Rule 26 – a matter I raised with AIM Regulation on 29 December last year.

Challenger Acquisitions chairman quits after just 358 days as company admits its in real trouble

Published 114 days ago

Cynical Bear is probably onto his second bottle of ouzo by now thanks to today's news from Challenger Acquisitions (CHAL). Mr Bear has warned you time and time again about the numerous red flags associated with this company and indeed made it one of his two sells of the year with a target price of 0p HERE. And today we learned that after just 358 days with the company the chairman John Le Poidevin has resigned. It gets better if you are Mr Bear. Have another ouzo.

Advanced Oncotherapy - Sinophi denial throws up more red flags: this stinks more and more

In the face of relentless pressure from this website, embattled Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO) yesterday put out a statement attempting to draw a line in the sand over its falling out with Sinophi, whom it had claimed was set to buy $120 million of machines from it. It has failed. the statement begs even more questions and the shares remain utterly uninvestable.

Filthy 40 Aquatic Foods – Q3 trading update

Published 168 days ago

Shares in ShareProphets AIM-China Filthy Forty play Aquatic Foods (AFG) put on 35% on Friday, following release of a third quarter trading update. Drilling through some of the numbers they seem to be impressive, begging the question of why an apparently profitable and cash-generative company which is drowning in cash worth about three times its market capitalisation would be considering its dividend policy, having chopped the half-year payment by 71%.

LAST DAY to order free copies of Tom Winnifrith e-books

Published 183 days ago

A slight tweak in the ShareProphets business model means that as of November 1st nearly all, of the e-books that I have penned will no longer be available for free on this website - you will have to buy them on Amazon. So you have just TODAY to get free copies of titles such as "The 49 Golden Rules of making Money from Shares" as well as the 49 Red Flags book and the book Ben Flip Flop Turney and I produced on how to value oil, gas and mining shares. The same applies to Zak Mir's crap e-book on charting.

Filthy Forty Taihua – where, oh where, is that share buy-back?

Published 186 days ago

At risk of sounding like a broken clock, ShareProphets AIM-China Filthy Forty play Taihua (TAIH) announced a comical open offer which, apart from a bit of working capital, was to fund a share buy-back. That was back on 25 August – more than two months ago. So where is it?

Telit - now the biggest short on AIM?

Published 202 days ago

There are many smaller companies on AIM that are heading for zero as they are either almost out of (other folks) cash - Avanti Communications (AVN), IGAS (IGAS) or are plain frauds like African Potash (AFPO) nor Cloudtag (CTAG). But if you are a looking for a big company with plenty of borrow that is ripe for a share price collapse look to Israeli tech stock Telit (TCM). At 278p the market cap is a monstrous £321 million, call it $400 million. That is a rum n coke.

Filthy Forty Haike Chemical – first out of the traps this week with interims. Red Flags for breakfast?

Published 215 days ago

Well done to ShareProphets AIM-China Filthy Forty play Haike Chemical (HAIK) for being first to stick its head above the parapet this week with the release of its interims to June. One down, nine to go. The PR reads well enough: profitable for the half, lots of cash in the bank. That’s the spin – but what about the Red Flags – such as negative net current assets?

Filthy 40 Taihua – Open Offer (to fund share buy-back) result: it’s a rum’n’coke

Published 224 days ago

In the curious world of ShareProphets AIM-China Filthy Forty play Taihua (TAIH) we have now had the result of the Open Offer which was announced in order to raise funds to pay for a share buy-back. I’ve got a great idea to get Jeremy Corbyn elected into Downing Street: let’s raise the basic rate of income tax in order to fund a cut in the basic rate of tax. I digress….This is, of course, all from a company which saw its Auditor issue a going concern emphasis of matter and a qualified opinion on its FY15 accounts in relation to trade receivables.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Highland Natural Resources really is run by some well dodgy fellows

Published 242 days ago

Still no lawyers letter from African Potash (AFPO) has arrived at Sheriff Towers. It really is like waiting for Godot. But at least my mother in law has remembered that it is my wedding anniversary tomorrow. I discuss another thing happening tomorrow, that is to say African Potash which has no cash having to repay $1.1 million to its FD's Mrs, Katrina Clayton. I look at Highland Natural Resources (HNR), Gulf Keystone (GKP), Glenwick (GWIK), Opera (OPRA) and then Gable (GAH) which really has posted a most enormous red flag today. Sell - target 0p. 

ACEEEEEED!! Filthy 40 Taihua – on drugs as it announces Open Offer to pay for share buy-back.

Well this is a most bizarre situation. ShareProphets AIM-China Filthy Forty play Taihua (TAIH) has announced an underwritten one-for-three Open Offer at a 134% premium so that it can fund a share buy-back (and keep back a few quid for working capital). Has the company been taking too many doses of its own medicine?

Audioboom - drowning in red flags - where to start: sell

Lo and behold there is indeed a £2.55 million placing at 2.5p today but there is also a stream of other announcements which are a red flag festival. This is a horror story.

China fraud Aquatic Foods – shares roofing it: surely a statement required?

Published 292 days ago

There are so many Red Flags surrounding ShareProphets AIM-China Filthy Forty Aquatic Foods (AFG) that it is hard to know quite where to start. One could consider the discount to cash, to profits, to assets and wonder why there have been no buy-backs announced just for starters, but there are plenty more to be found HERE. So why have the shares been roofing it?

Filthy 40 – China New Energy FY15 results: a stinking POS festooned in Red Flags

Published 302 days ago

ShareProphets AIM-China Filthy Forty play China New Energy (CNEL) has seen us hoist the Red Flag on several occasions before (see HERE) but its FT15 results, released on deadline day (Thursday) take the biscuit. The company is, quite simply, a disgrace and its advisers (Nomad Cairn and disgraced Broker Daniel Stewart) should be ashamed.

Advanced Oncotherapy Red Flag Season part 3 - Tell us about Sinophi?

Published 315 days ago

On 25 March 2015 Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO) announced what it claimed was a major breakthrough in China, what it termed the "first major sale of a LIGHT system" in China. Well that was the headline. The customer was a firm called Sinophi. The shares zoomed on this $40 million order. Jolly good news. 37 days later the company raised £20 million in a placing at 8p. But did anyone care to look underneath the PR spin? No. Lets start with Sinophi Healthcare Limited.

Fusionex: A Right Wrong 'un reports dismal interims, well done Kevin Ashton

Published 333 days ago

We have been on the case of bargepole stock Fusionex (FXI) since the world's greatest tech analyst Kevin Ashton flagged it up as a sell at UK Investor 2015. The bear case grew with Zak Mir giving it the kiss of death with not one but two buy tips but it was the trading statement last Autumn that really woke folks up to the genius of Ashton as an analyst and of Mir as a counter-indicator. Today we have interims. Natch, the shares are down - at 158p - but the stance remains a stand out sell.

Highland Natural Resources, the stench of Stanford (C)Rook and the related party deal that makes me run a mile

I realise that over on the LSE Asylum criticising Highland Natural Resources (HNR) gets the sort of reaction normally reserved for those who suggest that the McCann's are not complete role models when it comes to best practice in babysitting, but a transaction announced back in 2015 looks very odd indeed to me. Any more red flags vicar?

Published 396 days ago

The ShareProphets AIM-China Filthy Forty is today officially reduced to just 20 companies remaining listed on the Casino (Auhua, ACE, being the latest dispatch following a Nomad resignation and no replacement being found). But is it a problem specific to the Casino? It seems not, according to an interesting post by Steve Dickinson in China Law Blog (see HERE), but there are some simple tests which can be applied – take note AIM Nomads – which gives a very good indication of whether you are looking at a fraud or not.

Published 424 days ago

ShareProphets AIM-China Filthy Forty play Aquatic Foods (AFG) released a trading statement yesterday for its full year to Dec 2015. I commented that the last trading statement had more holes than a fish-net and yesterday’s serving of fishiness lowers none of the Red Flags previously raised.

It is hard to keep up. We called Auhua “Clean is my middle name” Energy (ACE) as the 21st AIM delisting/suspension on the ShareProphets AIM-China Filthy Forty as its Nomad steps down effective first thing on Monday, but at no-one-is-watching o’clock last night up popped Asia Ceramics (ACHP) to say that its Nomad had resigned.

DQ Entertainment – the Red Flags pile up. Writing, wall.....this stinks!

Published 449 days ago

Following the appearance of AIM-listed DQ Entertainment (DQE) in our Red Flags at Night series regarding the resignation of its Nomad and other matters, slipped out at no-one-is-watching o’clock on 3 Feb, we had a Director Shareholding RNS yesterday afternoon. It is a complex announcement, but it stinks. Certainly it did not give any reason to question the wisdom of the Nomad, Allenby, to step down on 22 Feb. The shares remain a big sell even after the collapse of last week.

Red Flags at Night – DQ Entertainment to lose Nomad

Published 451 days ago

Update: the company re-issued the RNS of last night at 7am this morning, with the correction in the title that it's Nomad was resigning. Now it could be that someone at the company thought it a bit of an oversight, or perhaps the Nomad (Allenby) insisted on the correction. Either way it would appear that any attempt to bury the bad news has backfired in spectacular fashion: the shares are off by 45% last seen. 

Tom Winnifrith Bonus Bearcast - China Norfolk Aquatic Foods Red Flag special

Published 452 days ago

Aquatic Foods (AFG) has been on the AIM Casino for exactly one year but its shares have slumped from 70p to 15p bid.

This one is going down.

The Crony Capitalist City parasistes trousered fees of £550,000 ( two years after tax profits) from a £1.5 million fund raise at IPO (with directors pocketing £106,000) but I somehow suspect investors will not propser with this AIM casino chip.

Results round-up a festival of AIM-China Red Flags at the end a festy fortnight on the Filthy Forty.

Published 575 days ago

Phew, what a scorcher! The heat really was turned up on the ShareProphets AIM-China Filthy Forty over the past two weeks. Last week we had one AIM-execution,  a suspension (and subsequent restoration) as Vmoto (VMT) announced a transaction which we find less than credible (HERE) and results from Jiasen (JSI) which prompted Tom Winnifrith to present us with a choice that he was a banana or Jiasen is a fraud. And JQW (JQW) had its operations suspended by the Chinese authorities for contraventions of advertising and pyramid-selling regulations before releasing less than convincing interims. This week saw fourteen of the Filthy Forty racing to the line to get results filed by close of play Wednesday so as to avoid automatic suspension, two of which added to the overcrowding problem on AIM’s Death Row as their Nomad quit. Here is the ShareProphets  round-up of AIM-China Red Flags served up this past week.

The Camkids FRAUD – An Open Letter to Cairn Financial and AIM Regulation – suspend shares in JQW NOW!

Published 627 days ago

Yesterday we demonstrated quite clearly (HERE) why Camkids (CAMK) has committed accounting fraud and why the statement of yesterday just does not add up. We have been saying that this company is a fraud for months and months and that is now clear to all. The local auditors of Camkids and the now delisted fraud Naibu acted for three other AIM stocks, one of which is JQW (JQW).  The other was Sorbic International, a now delisted fraud. JQW is also a fraud and we call for an immediate suspension of its shares as well.

Red Flags at Night – Xplorer plc FY Results: horrific!

Published 637 days ago

Xplorer (XPL) came in for a grizzly Bearcast savaging from Tom Winnifrith back on 1 Dec 2014 (HERE) following its Friday after-hours at no-one-is-watching o’clock interims statement. Last week saw this LSE Standard Listing company repeat the trick with its full year results to the end of March 2015 statement, released at 6pm when everyone had gone home for the weekend, or possibly for a few days’ summer holiday on Marbs with Jon Stretton-Knowles. If the Interims were a shocker, this statement was so much worse - it is hard to know where to start. 

Visit to Jiasen International June 2015 - Red Flags Ahoy, when's the delisting?

Published 639 days ago

A man known to me has recently been to China to see Jiasen (JSI). I was a bear before, having read this I am even more of a bear. Too many things just do not stack up. There clearly is a Jiasen business. But it is just nothing like what is claimed by the listed company. On the basis of this on the ground reporting by a fellow who understands industrial processes I state that beyond doubt I do not believe that its stated profits, sales and net assets are real.

China New Energy – another Norfolk on AIM, or just a POS?

Published 644 days ago

AIM-listed China Companies with characteristic Red Flags seem to be coming thick and fast as featured articles here on ShareProphets. Tom Winnifrith was on record some time ago saying that any Chinese company listed on AIM was an automatic bargepole, and with good reason. We’ve had Naibu (NBU) and Sorbic International (SORB) already given their marching orders by AIM, after spending over month looking for a new Nomad. Indeed, with Naibu’s CEO jailed and evidence that the cash it claimed to have was all fiction, and Sorbic’s rather more straightforward situation that the CEO ran off with the cash and the assets (and the Chinese authorities seem reluctant to intervene) it is hard to avoid the conclusion that these were just plain, abject frauds from top to bottom. 

So what is Quindell really worth? Probably not 0p but it could be

Published 650 days ago

Shares in the biggest stockmarket fraud for 30 years, Quindell (QPP), are currently suspended at 124p valuing it at around £625 million on a fully diluted basis. But what is it actually worth? Some brokers are marking it down to 0p because of the suspension but it is probably not worth 0p – thanks to the folly of the Aussie prats at Slater & Gordon – but it might just be.

Daniel Stewart – More Companies House revelations as Red Flags abound

Published 655 days ago

Having posed a few questions (HERE) about AIM-Cesspit poster boy Daniel Stewart Securities plc (DAN) and its unlisted plc subsidiary Daniel Stewart & Company plc, I’ve had something else pointed out by an avid reader. I wondered how it was that the parent company had managed to produce audited FY Mar14 results (albeit months after the deadline, which saw the shares suspended) when the subsidiary accounting for the vast majority of revenues had not. Given that the two share the same financial year, this seems all rather odd. And given that the parent was audited by PWC, how on earth has PWC been able to verify what is reported with reference to the contribution to group revenues (ie almost all of it) without itself auditing the subsidiary accounts?

Quindell Bulletin Board Moron of the Day: Mr Palmer LSE Board – his “obligation” is to destroy me”

Oh dear, The Quenron (QPP) shareholder list does contain more than its fair share of complete and utter nutters. On an almost daily basis I am alerted to a post which has been made by someone who really is truly bonkers. I was entertained to see some cretin on ADVFN discuss the “TW Red Flags” on Quenron – apparently having a strong opinion which is not buy is deemed a Red Flag.  However, The Bulletin Board Moron of the Day is “Mr Palmer” on the LSE Board. On a day when another Quindell nutter who boasted on twitter of having a "hitlist" which included myself and Dan Levi has been reported to the Old Bill (not by me as I regard the Met as useless), Mr Palmer takes centre stage.

It was only the other day that a Bulletin Board Moron owning shares in Naibu (NBU) referred to me as Winnifraud, accusing me of making it all up. Hey presto come Friday there were dire interims and t is clear that it is not me that is the Norfolk and the moron saw his investment slump in value by another 40%. Worse is to come as I shall reveal later today.  But this follows the same pattern as we have seen with Range Resources, Sefton, Vialogy, Globo, Quindell, Iofina, blinkx, Gulf Keystone, Outsourcery etc. etc. Folks like myself and Paul Scott, the great share blogger, point out obvious reasons to sell and all we get is abuse.

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.
