Fitbug – this time RNS Reach joke (sorry, ‘announcement’) seen for what it is

Published 3 days ago

Having seen its shares soar last month on its previous RNS Reach announcement, enabling a placing before the shares completely slumped back, Fitbug (FITB) has now released another – claiming it “would like to share some insights and findings from a recent case study, following a pilot wellness programme with MTR Crossrail”...

Published 33 days ago

On the back of an RNS Reach (i.e. not even deemed to merit a main RNS) announcement, shares in “digital wellness technology provider” Fitbug Holdings (FITB) roofed it to be 370% higher, at 0.775p, before a suspension of trading was announced. Hmmm…

Ergomed (ERGO) receives a "buy" recommendation is the headline of the RNS Reach that has just gone out. It is very unusual to announce a broker report so I had a butchers at the RNS Reach - a Reach is an announcement the Nomad deems not to be price sensitive. Read on and you see why.

FastForward – Uber ramp as new Nomad/Broker signals Placing Ahoy

Published 263 days ago

I have a few questions to add to Tom Winnifrith’s and Cynical Bear’s coverage of the fine outfit that is AIM-listed FastForward Innovations Ltd (FFWD). I’m sure there are perfectly reasonable explanations, but perhaps the company might like to share them – especially with a placing so obviously on the way as the (re-) renewal of what was once the AIM-China play called London Asia Chinese Private Equity Fund (CGOP) continues.

Pointless PR Puffery RNS of the day: ServicePower Technology – when’s the placing?

Published 486 days ago

Hmmm. Seven – yes, SEVEN RNS Reach releases since the start of H2 (July 1). That’s the running score with AIM-listed ServicePower Technology (SVR). It is almost one per fortnight. Surely there is no attempt to pump up the share price ahead of a placing, is there? Oh hang on, what do we find in the interims which were published on deadline day?

UPDATED: Pointless PR puffery RNS of the day – NetDimensions: when’s the Placing?

Published 489 days ago

I had to laugh out loud when I read this morning’s RNS Reach from AIM-listed NetDimensions (NETD). It is normally a pretty bad sign when a company announces that it has won some sort of spurious award, but this really takes the biscuit. You see, it is not even NetDimensions that has won it: it is one of its clients!  The update is the figures from the balance sheet - far, far worse than my first reading.

Frontera – good news? Or just a pre-placing ramp?

Published 500 days ago

AIM-listed Frontera Resources Corporation (FRR) issued a long and detailed RNS regarding its operations in Georgia this morning. It seems to offer a rose-tinted view of the world: could it be that this is a good moment to be buying the shares, then? There is much to like, as the company trumpets a significant upgrade to gas resources associated with its ongoing exploration and production efforts in the country of Georgia. Or is it just a pre-placing ramp?

Since 23 March Touchstone Gold (TGL) has realeased 4 RNS Reach statements. An RNS Reach is a statement that is not financially material but allows company's to ramp their shares bu hoodwinking mug punters into thinking that they are of great import. And the 4 releases were indeed true ramperoonie drivel. The shares responded heading up to 0.9p to buy so guess what happened next?

PR spinning, share price obsession, misleading investors – Avanti Communicatons, look to sell on Monday results

Published 889 days ago

Avanti Communications (AVN) is a Bulletin Board darling which spews out more than its fair share of Red flag warnings. Its obsession with its share price is understandable given that it needs to get away yet another equity fundraising within 12 months. And hence I draw your attention to a release issued on Friday.
