AIM-listed Haydale (HAYD), fresh from its bailout keep-the-lights-on placing and open offer at 2p in which it raised £5.5 million (gross) last month, has announced its full year results, to June 30, this morning. The numbers are truly grim.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Snopes raises massive questions for KPMG, Nomad Peel Hunt, the idiots at AIM Regulation, the SNP et al

I refer to this amazing exposé by Snopes HERE into Max Polyakov, Ukraine's Elon Musk. Why does it matter: I recall Cupid and the great establishment cover up.  Thjis is crime plain and simple and the board knew about it and covered it up. KPMG covered it up. The Nomad did nothing and so too did the Oxymorons at AIM Regulation. The SNP has been lobbying hard for Polyakov. They are all beneath contempt. Then I ask if share buying at Bluebird Merchant Ventures (BMV) is legit. It is. Then I discuss why a whistleblower may or may not have a story about another AIM company, look at Made.com (MADE), Sosandar (SOS), Tern (TERN) and Bidstack (BIDS): two placings , one a pea shooter, one possibly (but probably not) a bazooka.

Image Scan – warns on trading but argues “retain our optimistic outlook for the future”. Really?

Previously writing on x-ray imaging company Image Scan (IGE), in March with the shares up to 2.25p I questioned how “significant” is the loss to be? and concluded to avoid the shares. What of today a “trading update” and the shares currently a further more than 20% lower on the back of it, to just above 1p?

Video: Dollars or Gold, Choose Wisely

Gold asset manager Jaime Carrasco of Canaccord Genuity reckons that for gold bulls like him the goood rimes really are abnout to start soon as the world goes to hell in a hand cart. Jaime says, “I’ve been preparing for this storm for a long time, and it’s here. I don’t think we can hide from the global volatility. In 2008, they bailed out the banks, but now the question is who will bail out the governments."

Slashing (already dire) Versarien forecasts ahead of Q4 share price meltdown

You can sometimes get some borrow in Versarien (VRS) and if you can you should even with the shares, which were once almost 200p, having slumped to below 15p. The next collapse will happen and happen fairly soon. It is a when not an if.

Bidstack raises £10 million – is that enough?

Lunatics such as the low grade Ulster share spiv Nigel Hassard insisted that Bidstack (BIDS) did not need a fund raise even as its own broker slashed forecasts and warned that the company would be down to just £34,000 cash at December 31 this year.  The loons said that I was just scaremongering.  Of course, Bidstack did not tell ordinary investors about that Stifel red alert, instead, the very same day issuing a ramptastic statement about a $100 million market opportunity. I’d like to talk about an opportunity – also not grounded in any hard actual events – that I have with Cheryl Cole.

Victorian Plumbing – “trading ahead of market expectations”. What, previously massively lowered ones?

Online bathroom retailer Victorian Plumbing (VIC) has issued a trading update for its year ended 30th September headlined “Trading ahead of market expectations” and the shares have currently responded more than 15% higher to above 40p. How creditable ‘ahead of expectations’ is, of course though depends on how challenging the expectations were. So what’s the story here?

Tern Primary Bid offer flops – do the maths on when next bailout needed: it’s grim

If you do the maths, the Primary Bid flop for Tern (TERN) announced this morning is really bad news. The amount raised by Primary Bid and in a subscription is just not enough. It is a sticking plaster on a wound bleeding cash when a full tourniquet was needed. And it means that the countdown to the next placing is already underway.

A pleasing update from Imperial Brands

Regular readers will know that I never have smoked or vaped  and never will in the future. It is not my bag but if people want to buy the range of products offered by Imperial Brands (IMB), British American Tobacco (BATS) and the few other global corporate peers that exist out there (all of which are highly taxed by governments around the world), that is absolutely fine by me based on my belief in a freedom of choice. As for health and safety and common-sense, if you want to ban tobacco and related stocks then I guess you should do the same for alcohol and gambling and a bunch of pharmaceuticals. Anyhow, my view has been that Imperial Brands has been a must-have for your pension fund for a couple of years now. And so it has been pleasing to see a 20% share price rise this year (despite all the overall global market angst) and a 4% share price rise today.
