Today's the day that African Potash gets slung from the NEX markets or has the rules bent for them, so in normal circumstances it would sponsor this week's contest. But there is an even better sponsor, step forward disgraced share ramper Roger Lawson of ShareSoc infamy who will donate some of the Globo shares he owns as a prize. Natch, Ramper Lawson sold most of his Globo shares before telling readers to sell, but he still has some left and even offered to help the management take the company forward.
The July edition of the UK Investor Show Magazine is live featuring eight share tips, a question of life after the Tories, a special book offer, CEO interviews with Optibiotix (OPTI) and Wishbone (WSBN) and much more.
KEFI Minerals (KEFI) “is pleased to announce that it has conditionally raised approximately £3.8 million (approximately US$5 million), before expenses, through the issue of 761,921,740 new ordinary shares… at a price of 0.5p per share”. Is it right to be so?
If you ever wanted a case-study in Red Flags then look no further than the FY15 results of ShareProphets AIM-China Filthy Forty poster-boy China New Energy (CNEL). This is a company festooned in them. Just for starters, let’s take a look at yesterday morning’s RNS and the involvement of its “independent” NED. It just stinks. Never mind about AIM Rules, let’s get the share price up so that we can get more confetti issued.
Hello Share Sippers. One of those dynamic companies which is never out of the news for long is BT (BT.A). The reason is obvious, the country relies on it not just for telephone land lines but for access to the internet. It’s an odd situation for so many companies to be reliant on another one for a service nobody can do without. And BT, if its rivals are to be believed, has taken advantage of the fact.
In this podcast I start by clarifying exacty where I stand on Nostra Terra (NTOG) then I move onto Lead All (LEAL), Blenheim Natural (BNR) and China New Energy (CNEL). Then I look at Strat Aero (AERO) where there is news from Texas ( not good). Finally a stock we own, Bluebird Merchant (BMV) and I assist you with the maths on today's cracking news.
Shares in previous wrongster Rightster Group, now Brave Bison Group plc (BBSN), currently trade more than 17.5% higher today, at 5p, on the back of a trading update ahead of its results for the first half of 2016, expected to be announced on 31st August. Is it really now recovery ahoy here?
Now that NunaMinerals is in administration no-one other than the poltroons at the UKLA believes it will do a RTO of worthless fraud Worthington. So what next? Roll up Flagship Global Corporation which is listed on US OTC markets and is essentially bust. Perfect!.
Fevertree (FEVR) has announced blisteringly good interim results today, helping to nudge the share price higher by another few percentage points. With the market cap rapidly closing in on £1 billion, investors would do well to re-assess their positioning.
I was delighted to read this morning’s RNS from AIM-listed cancer-buster ValiRx (VAL): it has ditched the value-destroying funding package with Bracknor. About time too, this has been a disaster for the share price ever since it was announced back in March. With the shares having crashed from 12.5p the day before the package was announced to the current 6.875p (last seen) the damage has been horrific.
In May I questioned whether the HaloSource, Inc. (HAL) sale of its Recreational Water business was all as it initially seems – and the company now updates that “total revenue from continuing operations for the period ended 30 June 2016 was $1.4 million (H1 2015: $2.7 million)” and “a cash balance of $4.1 million”. Hmmm…
AIM-listed jam-tomorrow investment company Tern plc (TERN) released its interims to June 30 2016 this morning. Once again the company has to be commended on the speed with which it gets its numbers out. As expected there is a large paper profit, no cash and the promise of future dividends despite a lack of cash and hefty retained losses. As to the profit…..
As house broker to Optibiotix (OPTI), Hybridan is paid to be a fan and on that basis you should really take its bullishness for granted. But a note published a few days ago, before today's cracking news, explains the bull case and since we own shed loads of these shares why not give this most excellent report a wider airing. If the target was 106p pre today's good news surely it would be higher now as analyst Derren Nathan ( not a total poltroon) could cut the risk weighting on one product?
Hallelujah! Only six months after admission, the Sub-Standard Shocker XI stalwart, Falcon Acquisitions (FAL) yesterday announced a potential RTO of the exciting OTT business, Quiptel Hong Kong Limited. Months of looking and it was under its nose the whole time!
He tried his best to ramp this crock of shite but even arch twitter ramper Wayne Gibson, aka Big Gib, could not push the rancid wastewater that is Blenheim Natural Resources (BNR) uphill. Having bought a stake of 5.625 million shares ( 3.05%) just before Christmas at 0.8-1p, Gib has now bailed, taking a huge haircut.
Tungsten (TUNG) has announced results for its year ended 30th April 2016 and that “the board is confident the company is well positioned for further sustainable growth”. The shares are further lower, at a current 43p, in response. Hmmm…
There would appear to be an increasingly common correlation between CEOs who freely indulge in podcasts, interviews and courting private investors, and those same PIs getting screwed a short while later!
Hello Share Swashers. We all know that shares in Britain took a tumble on June 24 when the Brexit vote was announced. But then many shares recovered. Most property and building stocks, however, did not. So in my view, as the results of Brexit will become clearer later on and will be favourable, property shares are probably now one of the biggest bargains out there. Though of course, if you still fear the exit from Europe, then you won’t agree with me.
I explain why there was no bearcast yesterday. Then I look at the allegations made by Brokerman Dan against Nostra Terra (NTOG) and its CEO Matt Lofgran. Nostra did itself no favours at all but insists it has done nothing wrong. I tend to believe it however... Then I look at Marechale (MAC) Servision (SEV) and Vislink (VLK)
“NetDimensions (NETD), a global provider of performance, knowledge and learning management systems, is pleased to provide a trading update for the six months ended June 30, 2016”. The shares are currently more than 25% lower, at 43.5p, on the back of it. Hmmm…
AIM-listed Purplebricks (PURP) only joined the Casino in December and today it was announced that its Chief Marketing Officer dumped 243,618 shares at a price of 140p – worth a shade over £341,000 – last Friday.
Highlands Natural Resources (HNR) is shameless in the way that it announce the most fantastically misleading news to ramp its shares to get another covert placing away. Today's announcement is a total shocker. It is paying $500,000 for the right to pick up 100% of the costs but just 80% of the revenues from six wells in Colorado. The numbers sound great...sadly they are just plain old bollocks as 10 minute's research on the internet shows. Highlands states:
I started the PLC death list in June 2015 with 21 members. The aim is to pick stocks that will either go bust or get slung off the AIM Casino. Each departure requires a nreplacement. With nine new entrants today 40 names have joined this select group. So far there have been two outright failures on my part, Mariana Resources (MARL) and Jersey Oil & Gas (JOG). There was one volte face but I was ahead at volte face point and it was a great call both short and long - Wandisco (WAND), two near kills, InternetQ (INTQ) and Monitise (MONI) and thirteen slam dunk kills: Cloudtag (CTAG), Worthington (WRN), African Potash (AFPO), Jiasen (JSI), Camkids (CAMK), China Chaintek (CTAK), JQW (JQW), Afren (AFR), Daniel Stewart (DAN), Sefton (SER), Outsourcey (OUT - boy I enjoyed that one - Afriag (AFRI) and Auhua. So 13 out of 31 = 40%+ - not bad eh? Arguably that is 15 out of 31 - almost 50%! That leaves:
Our exclusive Winnileaks service has obtained a series of emails from May 3rd 2017 which show that Peterhouse Corporate Finance has misled investors in Nyota Minerals (NYO) - these emails compound the damning evidence of the secret document I published on Wednesday. This is so damning that maybe even the useless clowns at AIM Regulation will take an interest.
I wrote an article yesterday on my own website about the ponzi that is the UK state pension and how it is bound to collapse unless very hard choices are made which they will not be. I note a lot of smart comments were posted by readers on that article so delve deeper into this issue but go on to address other massive changes that will hit the UK workforce and how the State is in total denial about how it will cope. It comes up with bad solutions or no solutions but the net result is that in 20 years time you and I will not be able to rely on the State for anything at all - so what should we all do now?
Naturally Sprott Asset Management, as the world's best known resource investor, favours gold but, and this may surprise you, it does see a case for bitcoin exposure. Its latest monthly report discusses the battle: Bitcoin vs Gold. Over to analyst Trey Reik who writes:
For months, shares in R4E (R4E) have been held back because it was in technical breach of the covenants on its bank debt. We never expected the bank to pull with Nigel Wray and Johnny Hon owning c50% of the equity and standing behind the firm. But some BB savants knew better...they always do.
I've known Andrea Gonella for ages. We have never, to my knowledge, met but have oft corresponded by email. He resides, I think, in Belize and seems to spend a lot of his time fishing. Lucky chap. He is also minted and someone who has for ages believed that Conroy Gold & Natural Resources (CGNR) sits on a very interesting gold deposit in some of those counties of Ireland that are part of God's own Kingdom of Ulster but are these days in the Republic of Ireland. However...
I see that UK Oil & Gas (UKOG) has cemented its position as the nation’s favourite oil tiddler with a stonking rally to 5.1p since my recent short call at 3p. I haven’t received such joyous vitriol on twitter since I called Cloudtag a sell at 7p and saw the shares rise to 20p. Tom Winnifrith gleefully points out that he is glad to see someone take over as the Bulletin Board Moron's No 1 hate figure, at least for now.
Over the past few weeks we have published a string of letters sent by a significant shareholder in AIM listed Norfolk Mercantile Ports & Logistics (MPL) to its Nomad Cenkos so that when Mercantile runs out of other people's money as it surely will, the shamed former adviser on the Quindell (QPP) fraud cannot say that "it did not know." Its role is on the record as you can see in our full coverage HERE. Now that same shareholder has written to Daniel Slater, the analyst at co broker Arden Partners responsible for - arguably - the worst research note of 2017.
Last week the Nomad and broker to Nyota Minerals (NYO) announced that they were quitting as of August 17. As I have exposed HERE and HERE the advisers have behaved disgracefully and if there was any justice they would be facing sanction. But I fear that it is Nyota that will suffer.
On the AIM market these days it seems as though many would far rather buy into the latest pump and dump on a piece of junk, than invest in a company that is actually running its business properly and making money. The problem with putting your money into junk is that at some point true value normally shines through and the resultant share price crashes can be spectacular.
Hello, Share Muckers. Because I still own far too many oil stocks, I really must take my pruning shears to most of them. We seem to be moving very slowly towards renewables and nuclear, not to mention the march of hybrid cars.
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...
Metal Tiger (MTR) has updated on a preliminary interpretation of airborne electromagnetic geophysics data collected along 50km of the T3 Dome – a largely unexplored structure, where the company’s Botswana joint venture discovered the copper-silver deposit ‘T3’ last year.
Having commenced the year at just over 100p, shares in staffing group Empresaria (EMR) reached 168p at the start of last month before slipping back – closing yesterday at 146.5p. However, they are currently 5.5% higher today on the back of a “Trading Update” announcement…
Shares in AO World (AO.) haven’t even nearly recovered to levels prior to a profit warning in 2015 – and indeed have recently been sliding further. Does an “AGM and Trading Statement” announcement today help?...
Hello, Share Pingers. Budget airline EasyJet (EZJ) has issued a trading statement to say that passengers in its third quarter were up by more than nearly 11% to 22 million. Revenues improved by 16% to £1.4 billion.
A “Project Completion” announcement from MediaZest (MDZ) – a company with an end-March year-end but whose two previous announcements thus far in 2017, a 3rd March “New Business Update” and 8th May “Significant Project Completion” included no update on overall financial performance. Surely something now then, approaching four months after the year-end…
