Don't you just love our new Cloudtag (CTAG) countdown clock on the right hand side of this page? I am already assembling material old and new for this presentation at UK Investor but the clock is a jolly jape is it not? Elsewhere I never cease to wonder at the stupidity of some investors. I look at Amur (AMC) in this respect. I then look at Weatherly (WTI) which is telling you, plain as day, that its shares are worthless. I explain a few hard facts and ask new questions about Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO) and then have a butchers at Rosslyn Data (RDT) shares in which have just hit a new all time low. I wonder why? Smiley face, smiley face.

There are two statements out today from Xtract Resources (XTR) and neither can be viewed in any way as good news. We own these shares thanks to Dragons Den choices by Steve Moore & Gary Newman at UK Investor 2016, and today's admissions prompt me to start filling in P45s for both those writers.

I start with a discussion of gold versus Sovereign debt and refer to a table at the bottom of an article I penned today on the delusional poisonous midget Nicola Sturgeon and her welfare addicted countrymen HERE. Then it is onto TrakM8 (TRAK) but more importantly Boohoo (BOO). Will Paul Scott concede defeat on the former, should I show humility and concede defeat on the latter, just to avoid another session of retail gross margins waterboarding. What do you think? Cripes that reminds me that we picked up some Boohoo shares in the Dragons Den session last year at UK Investor. Bank gains, methinks.

On Thursday I spent much of the day with MBN, the firm run by Nigel Wray's daughter with which we are now putting on UK Investor. More details regarding April 1 2017 soon but it is all pretty exciting. On friday I had a catch up chat with Nigel and in this podcast I look at three companies we chatted about: Guscio (GUSC), Reach4Entertainment (R4E) and a new one, Franchise Brands which was born from the ashes of Myhome. Hmmmm.

The UK Investor speaker, Moneyweek columnist and gold guru and professional comedian Dominic Frisby sends me a flyer for his gigs at the Edinburgh Festival. Unlike some want to be writers, such as Ben Turney who are accidental comedians in that we just laugh at them, Dominic really is a professional comedian and is very funny so if you are in Edinburgh this year go see him. His main gig is Tax!

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.

Firstly happy birthday to my father - I have a present see HERE. Then a message on landing times for UK Investor tickets. If you have not booked yet do so now. Then I am going to annoy Paul Scott by bashing Roger Lawson. Those who followed Lawson's advice as he ramped blinkx (BLNX) without declaring his holding are 90% down. Yet the cocksucker is yet to apologise to them or to those he smeared & defamed who pointed out why his analysis was all cock. So let's look at the dire trading statement today. Then it is onto Asiamet (ARS), Strat Aero (AERO), Iofina (IOF), Fitbug (FITB), Vast Resources (VAST) and finally a detailed look at Rare Earth Minerals (REM) and some interesting points raised by Andrew Monk.

After the stock market crash of 1987, The US Federal Reserve sowed the seeds of the biggest debt bubble in the history of the world and this is now starting to unravel. Protecting wealth is now the order of the day and those who are not positioned for the unfolding events will see their net worth fall sharply and substantially, with very little prospect of a sharp bounce back.

Why would you go onto the Internet to read a magazine? I haven't the faintest - but thousands of you have done so and clicked here to read the first edition of UK Investor magazine. We've being podcasts, so I guess that's like radio on the Internet and we've do videos since the beguinning, and that's a little like television on the Internet so I guess that I should not be surprised that putting print on the Internet is a success.
