It may be off your radar but Anglo African Agriculture (AAAP) is a standard list company originally floated by Andrew Monk of VSA Resources but where big Dave Lenigas took over as chairman last Autumn. I should declare that we are shareholders and for what it is worth I am relaxed about the progress Big Dave is making, something that is not evident in legacy interims out today. VSA Resources still acts as financial adviser and broker and Monk is on the board. But I suspect not for long.
Hello, Share Spooners. Given the ageing and less healthy world population, I have often said that the big pharmaceuticals offer a buying opportunity. But as usual with medical advances, progress has been slow. I hold shares in GlaxoSmithKline (GSK). But although I’ve often been tempted to dive into its big rival AstraZeneca (AZN), I have resisted the urge. Now I’m rather glad I did.
Copper prices have remained volatile but continue to push higher, and if this continues it will be a very bullish signal for both producers and those looking to bring new projects online.
My good pal Roger Lawson will be receiving a superb see you in Court Bitchez letter from my lawyer tomorrow addressing his spurious allegations of libel to go with the one I sent last week concerning his spurious claim of harassment. On Friday his lawyers misled poor Audioboom (BOOM) bullying it to take down an April 2016 bearcast by telling porkies as you can read about HERE. So here is a new bearcast for Roger, for ShareSoc which really needs to consider its position and its association with Mr Lawson and for Barbara Streisand.
When disgraced AIM casino posterboy Mercantile Ports & Logistics (MPL) moves from being a member of the minus 98% club in which it currently sits to being a member of the minus 100% club, I want it known that Nomad Cenkos has been fully aware of massive issues all along and has done nothing other than bank obscene fees. As such we have run a series of letters from a big shareholder to Amber Wood, head of Corporate Governance at Lagos Securities, HERE and HERE and HERE and HERE and HERE and HERE Now for letter six which puts fragrant Amber and Lagos, Nomad to the Quindell (QPP) fraud as well, on notice for when the final wipeout occurs that they will be held accountable. This letter has also been cc'd to AIM Regulation - I know they are useless but surely even they must realise that Lagos Securities has "form."
Tungsten Corporation (TUNG) released its prelims for the year to April 2017 this week and there are few signs that a viable business is emerging from the mess left by founder Edi Truell.
Did you lose money on the wipeout at AIM Casino Paragon Diamonds (PRG) run by Philip Manduca? If so there is, perhaps, a chance to get it back from Nomad and broker Northland which made a killing on fees from Paragon and signed off on all of its statements, the veracity of which has been questioned.
On Friday at 4.30 Provexis (PXS) announced that it had raised £240,000 at 0.5p on top of the £350,000 it raised in May and it has now announced that it had opened the offer out to customers of PrimaryBid. But before you all rush ....
A business story that I have found facinating is the attempted takeover of NISA (the food shop people) by Sainsburys. We don't cover it because there is no investor angle. But the human angle is, always, unpredicable.
In five year time, the king of the fraudsters, Rob Terry of The Innovation Group and Quindell (QPP) infamy says he will be floating his latest ponzi, Quob Park Estate for $1 billion. Bollocks. There is more chance of me getting lucky with the entire Dallas Cowboys cheerleaders squad within the next 48 hours. As the SFO investigation into the £3 billion Quenron fraud ratchets up a gear, the only thing Rob Terry will be doing in five years time is praying that his next Roomie at Ford Open doesn't have a taste for ugly older men.
AIM-listed ASA Resources (ASA), formerly Mwana Africa, has been getting into a right mess of late, with significant funds having been remitted from operating subsidiaries in Zimbabwe and not properly accounted for. Funds remitted to group entities in Hong Kong have not been accounted for and it seems that the bank accounts in Hong Kong appear to remain under the control of two recently sacked directors, Mr Yat Hoi Ning (CEO) and Mr Yim Kwan (FD). It is an all too familiar story for followers of the ShareProphets AIM-China Filthy Forty: directors walk off with the cash, get sacked but can’t be reached. Now ASA tells us that it’s shares are suspended pending financial clarification – and a third director, Mr “Brian” Ching Fung Hung having gone AWOL has now also been removed from the board.
Are there no depths to which disgraced share ramper Roger Lawson of ShareSoc, Globo and blinkx infamy will not go in order to gag a free press? The latest trick from shamed ramper and his fascist lawyers Keystone is to lie to Audioboom. Ramper's lawyers have again been in touch with Audioboom about a post. You will remember that two days a go they argued that a bearcast from July 2017 was libellous and Audioboom did not have the balls to question this and just removed it - full details on thst shameful day plus the bearcast in question now hosted on another platform are HERE. Buoyed by the fact that Audioboom are just plain pussies, the bully boy lawyers and Lawson have tried it on again. So late last night a poltroon called Alex from Audioboom wrote to me:
Minoan (MIN) has announced results for its half year ended 30th April 2017, with Chairman Chris Egleton emphasising “following the dismissal of the Appeals against the Presidential Decree granting Outline Planning Consent for its Project in Crete, and the continued increase in the profitability of its travel business, the Group is about to enter the most rewarding period in its history”…
AIM Casino uber-ramp MySQUAR (MYSQ) 'fessed up on Friday that, as I had revealed 24 hours prior, a placing was underway but it insists that it does not need the cash. Really? I want you to consider a few numbers.
Hello, Share Twiggers. Probably the hardest decisions we have to make as diligent share shifters is when to sell a big winner. Because even the strongest share can reach a point where it is overbought. It may continue to defy gravity for some time, but what goes up too far must come down.

Oh how the Lucian Miers baiters were having fun a couple of days ago as UK Oil & Gas (UKOG) shares hit 11p. The Bulletin Boards were full of folks gloating about impending poverty for Lucian and for bears such as Waseem Shakoor. The biggest morons were adding to their holdings as they talked of ever more fanciful targets. Oh dear, as wre speak it is those who averaged up who are now hurting and hurting badly. The shares are just 6p-6.15p.
Two weeks ago exactly AIM Casino listed crock of shit lifestyle company Andalas Energy (ADL) announced some more hot air and jam tomorrow news sending its shares spiking to a peak of 0.14p to buy as Bulletin Board Morons whipped themselves into a semi-orgasmic frenzy of innumeracy and filled their boots. Today the shares are 0.065-0.07p meaning that the paper loss for those buyers at peak moron is already 50%+. Time for a podcast with long term Andalas groupie and well known cardboard box resident Justin the Clown methinks? The bad news for Justin and the morons is that things can only get worse...
ShareProphets AIM-China Filthy Forty play Aquatic Foods Group (AFG) has released news of its delayed FY16 numbers in an (almost) no-one is watching o’clock RNS yesterday, released at 4.26 pm – 12.26am local time in China. Goodness me, they must have been putting the wording together for hours! Needless to say, there are still no accounts. In my view the whole thing is a joke and Nomad SP Angel is being made to look foolish: take a look at the directors’ page of the company website!
Optibiotix (OPTI) has announced that its German partner HLH has achieved product registration of capsules containing the Optibiotix product LPDL and started commercial sales to drug stores on July 24.
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.
The August edition of the UK Investor Show Magazine is live featuring six share tips, the one gold share that all must own, and six reasons why the stock market may crash in 2017 and much more.
Earlier this month in Neil Woodford - how long before The Deadwood Press admits that he does not walk on water?, Tom noted a bad record – recently including Provident Financial (PFG). The Mail on Sunday had written “the FTSE 250 doorstep lender whose profits halved after it struggled to move to a new operating model” - the struggles have got considerably worse…
Showing not an ounce of humility, the fund manager who seems to have at least three high profile disasters as week, Neil Woodford has posted a comment on his group's blog explaining why Provident Financial (PFG) shares are cheap after yesterday's disastrous warning. But before you rush out to buy it is worth noting that after the last warning (in June) Nomates Neil posted another blog. Nomates had chatted at length to management, he understood the score, the market was wrong and Nomnates had bought a stack more shares. There seems to be a pattern here.
When Neil Woodford launched his Patient Capital Trust (WCPT) to much fanfare in 2015, everyone waited expectantly to see how he would start spending the £800 million war chest and so one had high hopes in April 2015 with the announcement of the first investment for the fund, namely a £4 million investment in an exciting quoted biotech play, Sphere Medial Holdings (SPHR). As an announcement last night showed, it has been as successful (or not) as one of his other uber-dogs RM2 International (RM2).
Once again I return to the subject of the company on AIM with the stupidest bunch of shareholders. The auditors of Bushveld Minerals (BMN) have stated explicitly that the company needs to raise fresh equity to avoid going tits up but shareholders respond by saying "how often have auditors got it wrong?" and a range of other excuses. They just do not get it at all, it is placing ahoy. Now the company has news today which the morons who own this stock seem to think is good. Ina private email this morning a top City broker put it thus:
On Monday 13th February, Tom Winnifrith noted a crazy market for resource juniors and that, as an experiment, we'd track a 'Dirty Dozen' of such stocks after 1 week, 1 month, 3 months, 6 months and on December 31. Here is a slightly late (so slightly longer than) 6 month update...
This week's Bulletin Board Moron contest is sponsored by the AIM Markets, the world's most successful growth market, now only slightly smaller than it was last year.
Optibiotix (OPTI) has announced that it has extended the Europe wide supply agreement announced with Sacco in March to cover the USA and Rest of the World. The new deal grants Sacco an exclusive licence to manufacture and supply OptiBiotix's cholesterol and blood pressure reducing LPLDL® strain in the US and ROW, in return for 50% of the profit, with a guaranteed cost of manufacture and minimum sales price per kilogramme to secure against discounting.
Hello, Share Mixers. As you may have gathered, I favour investment in all four big British banks at the mo. My main reason is that each time one of them announces new figures, its balance sheet seems to have improved nicely and the share price usually shoots up.
We asked you for suitable captions for the picture below of the leather man who took over from the cowboy as CEO of the Telit (TCM) village people. I refer, of course, to insider dealer Yosi Fait. You offered numerous suggestions as you can see HERE but there can be only one winner and it is
I wrote at the weekend about the surprising lack of TR-1’s at Red Leopard Holdings (RLH), particularly from the largest shareholder Spreadex, with the company having gone into suspension pending an RTO. Well, as if by magic, they arrived yesterday, after hours of course.
Ok this really is easy. All you need to do is to say which of the four well regarded and utterly honest individuals below is the odd one out and why. Do your worst. The deadline is midnight tonight (Wednesday)
Hello, Share Smugglers. The main staples of your portfolio, I should imagine, are in these popular sectors; oil, banks, pharmaceuticals, utilities and insurance. I could be wrong, but history shows that people who invested in these areas years ago still hold the stock.
It was around a year ago that I wrote an article about one of my then tips of the year BHP Billiton (BLT) observing that the world's largest mining company had just made billions of dollars of losses...but correctly the share price was going up. Billiton was a nice solid pick for 2016 but so far this year the share has been more volatile than remunerative.
Too many years ago to remember as a fledgling analyst and junior portfolio manager, I was told by an old hand that 'WPP is the company with the greatest correlation to the FTSE-100'. I have no idea - nor the boring Excel skills - to say whether this is true but the notion that the world's largest advertising company should broadly share the same ups and downs as the very international main UK market index makes quite a bit of sense.
Wishbone Gold (WSBN) has announced an £800,000 fund raise at 0.7p. Well we wish it was that simple. The mechanism is really very complicated but involves Yorkville so we imagine that there are people out there saying Death Spiral. They are wrong.
