Following complaints from shamed share ramper Roger Lawson, ADVFN has insisted on a raft of new editorial controls on OneFreeShareTip.com. I did not re-start my life five years ago to be told what I could or could not write. I said no and ADVFN boss Clem Chambers has just said that the website will be shut down. So...our hand is forced ... Welcome to fivefreesharetips.com - we hope you join NOW HERE.
Yesterday brought new shame on Gary Ashworth & co involved in the management buyout of InterQuest Group (ITQ) - as Tom has stated in a BearCast HERE. The following details a timeline of shame…
Having previously, in June, stated it “more than usually so… expect 2017 performance to be significantly weighted towards the second half” though also attempted to reassure that “whilst activity in the Public Sector is expected to be below last year's levels, this will be balanced by a better than expected demand from Retail and Lifestyle and Corporate Services clients”, there is now from interiors company Havelock Europa (HVE) a further “Trading Statement”. How’s that expected more so than usual second half weighting working out?...
I covered the Interquest (ITQ) scandal in a separate bearcast HERE. If you like bad language or tales of AIM wrongdoing you will love it. Elsewhere I look at the latest utterly meaningless trading statement from Audioboom (BOOM). Why is its CEO Rob Proctor so averse not only to defending free speech but also to handing out metrics that actuially mean anything. He is another man for the job of lavatory attendant at the Athens bus station. And BTW this company is going to run out of cash AGAIN. I also look at Havelock Europa (HVE), UK Oil & Gas (UKOG) and 88 Energy (88E). Now SIGH UP FOR A HOT SHARE TIP FREE HERE NOW!
Oh Ye of little faith!. There was big news on Tuesday for Optibiotix (OPTI). This was ONE of the big deals we were waiting for. There are more to follow but this should send critics of Optibiotix scuttling for cover as India's Tata is a giant. It has 660,000 employees and annual sales of $103.51 billion! Those who doubted us as we bought our first shares for two years HERE - at sub 55p a few weeks ago you can apologise. now. Go form an orderly queue. The shares are now 75p-77.5p and they are GOING MUCH HIGHER & SOON!
Top City PR Man Julian Bosdet, a senior director of of slimey and evil spinners Abchurch - PR of choice to China frauds on AIM and employer of many a posh but dim upper class twit - is on unconditional bail as he attempts to wriggle off a charge of driving his Range Rover back to his Country pile while well over the limit. His defence is based on attacking the fine and honourable men and women of the Avon & Somerset Police.
The word on the street is that - having raised £6.5 million (gross) at just 0.8p back in May - UK Oil & Gas (UKOG) has been so startled by the spectacular - and largely unwarranted - re-rate of its shares that it is lining up another, much larger, placing alberit at a material discount to the current share price. The shares raced ahead again yesterday as private investors again fundamentally misunderstood an RNS.
Previously writing on e-procurement software provider EU Supply (EUSP), I noted the market cap now approaching £13 million and looked forward to reviewing the cash flow detail in the September results announcement. This has now been made…
Gary Ashworth the founder and chairman of Interquest (ITQ) was once someone I once counted as a friend. No more and never again. Gary has behaved like a total prize shit with his 42p per share attempted MBO and a statement at 4.01 PM today was a final fuck you from Gary, CFO David Bygrave and the other complete and utter bastards behind the MBO. Gary I despise you and your pals as you have behaved beyond badly. Today's RNS is a case study in telling shareholders that their views do not matter and that they are about to be ( once again) utterly shafted. This podcast contains a lot of bad language but perhaps that is the only language that prize shits like Ashworth understand.
Hello Share Smilers. Touch wood, I’ve been rather lucky with my share tips this year. So I’m now looking for penny companies which may replicate the success of some of my babies which may have reached the end of their rising tethers. It’s not easy. There is not much value out there.
It of late seems to have been particularly difficult times for restaurant groups and I today note an “AGM Statement and trading update” announcement from Franco Manca (40 sites) and The Real Greek (15 sites) group, Fulham Shore (FUL)...
This is a wide ranging bearcast and given my assertion that Charles Tatnall and James Longley are not fit to run the public lavatory at Athens Bus Station I thought I'd fill you in with a bit more detail about that place, what the job entails and why these scallywags are just not up to it. I cover in this podcast Papillion Holdings (PPHP), MySquar (MYSQ), ITM Power (ITM), Fulham Shore (FUL), TrakM8 (TRAK) and, of course, World War three. And ahead of 11 AM tomorrow I remind you to ALL SIGN UP HERE NOW!
If you look at the FTSE-350 names reporting today there is something of a thematic bias with names like Barratt Developments (BDEV) and Berkeley Group (BKG) updating investors with their latest.
I wonder if my pal Paul Scott, the UK's top share blogger, has headed up to the post industrial grim urban wastlelands of Coventry for the AGM and investor open day of TrakM8 (TRAK). As someone who grew up near there I would not wish such a fate on anyone let alone a sensitive soul like Paul. Anyhow if a day in the place that gave us "Living in a ghost town" is not bad enough he will also have to digest a trading statement crafted by evil PR genius and crony capitalist Reg Hoare which ...leave a lot to be desired in term transparency. I would expect nothing less.
A week after my last piece on Papillon Holdings (PPHP) in which I slated the directors Charles Tatnall and James Longley, for their shocking behaviour, I can’t help but comment on this morning’s RNS stating that the long-awaited RTO with a failed gambling business is off. Who would have thought?
Interesting to see a new tech IPO this week with appScatter (APPS) joining AIM yesterday, raising £9 million at 65p. I thought I should take a look and only have the three concerns; the management team, the business model and the valuation! Taking each in turn:
The City's number one oil analyst Zac "the knife" Phillips of SP Angel has this morning torn into much ramped AIM dog Frontera Resources (FRR). I think you can take it that what the Knife means is BARGEPOLE!. Over to the great man:
I am going to Dublin on October 6th to do my utmost to see Professor Richard Conroy and loyal sidekick Maureen Jones booted out of the company they founded and have used as a lifestyle business for far too long - and replaced by Messrs Johnson, Heddle & O'Sullivan as I noted HERE. The way that the Prof sodomised democracy at the last Conroy Gold & Natural Resources (CGNR) GM means that he is not fit to run a pissoir in Bora Bora let alone a PLC. So what dirty tricks do you think Prof Moriaty will use this time: You vote - deadline midnight tonight.
We hope that you bought shares in Falanx (FLX) at sub 6p the other day as we told you to do. Even though that was well up on our 4.25p offer share tip level. The stock closed previously at 6p-6.5p, but we have now had a cracking trading statement. Told y'all!
Although you can’t currently trade shares in Central Asia Metals (CAML), given my bullishness on the company I felt that I should take a look at the current situation following news of a suspension in trading at the start of the week.
Taking readers suggestions for improvements, we've made it much easier to subscribe to your favourite one-stop source for breaking news and expert analysis on AIM and LSE listed shares. £5.99 pcm gets you access, that works out at sub 2p (inc VAT) per article. Think how much our big red flag calls on the AIM frauds have saved you and hot tips like IQE have made you. Its a nil brainer....it's madness not to sign up.
I have been having some good natured debate with Tom on the pros and cons of Big Sofa Technology (BST) recently and, as ever, he has allowed me to present my bearish version of events in advance of next week’s interims in contrast to his bullish thoughts the most recent of which is HERE.
It all started with a game of croquet. I start with my long term battle with scumbag ex Tory MP, the loathsome Sir Tony Baldry. He is now chairman of Westminster Group (WSG). I analyse its woes after Friday's interims. I look at the forthcoming IPO of the City Pubs Company and hoist some red flags. Then to 88 Energy (88E) and to those who have lost badly by ignoring my previous warnings I warn again. Big Time!
The following censure of Jason Drummond of Teathers (TEA) infamy is damning. It relates to his time at Media Corp (MDC) an AIM disaster story ending in bankruptcy. I think it is fair to say that Jason will not be sitting on any more AIM boards after this.
With its shares having reached 25.75p last week and closed at above 25p on Wednesday, Amryt Pharma (AMYT) announced on Thursday that it was “delighted with the support we have received” for an “oversubscribed placing”, raising a gross €15 million (£13.3 million)… at 20p per share! As a long standing shareholder I say "F**k you." I feel so utterly 100% shafted as will those who paid 26p+ last week after confident results which made it clear that Amryt was fully funded. So I asked Steve Moore to pen an analysis. As I explained in Thursday's bearcast HERE I am too angry to be objective. The fact is that at a 22.5p offer the shares are a BUY.
Hello, Share Collectors. Many of us, I know, are still awash in oil stocks, both the producers and riskier explorers. I’ve been advising that we cut down, as the competition from wind, sun, waves and biomass, threatens to grow. But I think I may have been too hard on ebony nectar and here are a few reasons why.
I’m continuing my look at forthcoming interims with the horror show that is the Woodford-backed RM2 International (RM2), first pointed out as an excellent bear tip by Graham Neary (HERE). One has to ask what the hell was Woodford thinking here?
From the FCA's spreadsheet of short positions required to be disclosed to it, the following shows the shorted AIM shares with positions from 2016 and thus far in 2017 (by net short position %) - and if this position has increased (red), reduced (green) or remained unchanged (black) since last week...
This week's Bulletin Board Moron contest is sponsored by Nyota Minerals, a company that has more lives than all of our reader's cats.
Last week it was the Sunday Times' chat through on personal debt which induced my breakfast coffee to be consumed in an unorthodox fashion. Today it is pension deficits - that quiet corporate horror show.
I am prompted by a great Zero Hedge article HERE to look at the mounting evidence that thanks to what is now the greatest debt binge in history, surpassing that of 2008, we are at peak insanity. Whether it is boob jobs on tick, the latest funding round at Deliveroo at a ludicrous valuation, the downgrade of UK Government debt or the madness of some peer to peer lending there are timebombs aplenty waiting to explode.
A useful lesson has been handed out recently to bears by the price action in two stocks: Telit Communications (TCM), an Israeli fraud quoted in London, and Eros International, an Indian fraud quoted in New York.
Want to get the best sell ideas on AIM? Just ask Zak Mir for his hot buy ideas and the Sith Lord kiss of death will not take long to play out. The world's worst chartist will be serving up more duff calls next Wednesday evening at NEX Exchange in Broadgate. There is more.
Having in the last couple of weeks been slipping back from above 1.3p towards 1p, shares in August tip at a 1.25p offer price Powerhouse Energy (PHE) are now recovering on the back of a “MOU for waste-to-hydrogen facilities” announcement. But they have a lot further to go.
Joining in with Cynical Bear’s run of interims previews, I thought I’d take a look at our old favourite, AIM-listed Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO). The history here has been nothing short of a disaster in the last 12 months or so, and appears to be now culminating in a potential cash-crisis.
Having been sparked from well below 200p by a May update including that “in the first 19 weeks of 2017, overall revenues were ahead of the corresponding period last year. The immediate outlook is more positive than it has been for some time”, shares in video security systems group IndigoVision (IND) have now fallen back to around the 200p level on results for the first half of 2017. Hmmm…
Reach4Entertainment (R4E) has announced results from a stated “modest” first half of 2017, though emphasises “second half of current financial year expected to be satisfactory, but 2018 forecasts already looking like a return to form from the key companies with support from the new initiatives of Dewynters Germany and Jampot”…
