To be fair, just a month and six days after launching in the USA Purplebricks (PURP) appears to be gaining some traction. Already it lists 1,460 apartments for sale in Los Angeles so folks are at least using it. Perhaps they like the claims made on the website Purplebricks.com?
At the end of June I commented on eServGlobal (ESG) that the interims argue “strong outlook” & Homesend “sales expansion”, but that the financials remained troubling. There’s recently been a pump – 2nd October; “HomeSend progress in the banking market”, 10th October; “eServGlobal outlook and business update” announcements – seeing the shares up from sub 8p at the end of last month to above 12p, closing yesterday at still above 10p… and so now “the company is pleased to announce”…
I cannot blame Jersey Oil & Gas (JOG) for raising £20 million today. It's the smart move. But if it has to offer shares at a 15-20% discount when it's on a roll what sort of discount will UK Oil & Gas (UKOG) have to offer as it seeks to raise £5-10 million with things going badly wrong? I also look at MySquar (MYSQ) after today's article that proves FRAUD. What is not allowed on AIM these days? Would complicity in mass murder be a problem? I give up.
I wrote that I would not comment again on the Internet of Things company Telit Communications (TCM) until borrow became available again. The recall of borrow, it will be remembered, along with buying by various parties such as Davide Serra (the self-regarding nincompoop who complained to both the SEC and the FCA about the truth being told about the Quindell fraud in which he was foolish enough to have a sizeable holding), caused the share price to almost double recently. The good news is that borrow is now possible and the shares are unsurprisingly on the slide. They should be sold with vigour.
It is clear that Nomad SP Angel does not care if its client MySquar (MYSQ) issues lies via RNS and it has not bothered to ask the one question that would show very clearly the Securities fraud committed by its client on July 31. It is a sorry state of affairs and I shall be writing to AIM Regulation and to the chairman of the LSE later to ask that SP Angel's license be revoked as it is clearly not fit and proper to run a public lavatory let alone be a Nomad. But now for John Meyer and his fellow dullards at SP Angel here is how your client defrauded investors.
Hello, Share Scoopers. Sometimes, gang, it makes sense to include advice from a different source when bringing shares before you for a possible punt. Especially when the other analysts agree with me. The boys and girls at Barclays have repeated an ‘overweight’ commendation for two big oil giants, and I’m glad to say I have chunky holdings in both of them.
UK Oil & Gas (UKOG) is almost out of cash and the see-through from the latest Horse Hill transaction shows that at 4.775p, a market cap of £169 million is absurd as I explained HERE. So at what price will the rescue £5-10 million bailout be priced a?. We know that it was offered some cash at 2p a few weeks back but that was before all the bad news. With a placing surely imminent the deadline to vote in this reader poll is midnight tonight (19 October)
LightwaveRF (LWRF) has announced “its next generation Apple HomeKit certified product range, for controlling smart devices with iOS apps and Siri voice commands, is now available to purchase via the Apple Online Store”, with CEO Andrew Pearson stating this “fantastic to confirm”. I bet it is…
The LSE Asylum recent hosted an evening for its moronic readers at which MySquar (MYSQ) presented. Afterwards its CEO was interviewed. Natch PROVEN RNS LIAR Erik Schaer told at least one whopping lie ( sales in the Quarter ending September 30th were NOT 400% up on the prior year). Natch the interviewer did not ask Erik about the securities fraud or the fact that MySquar was running out of money. Instead he was allowed to LIE that the last funding was to be used "for acquisitions and investments". Nothing to do with keeping the lights on as it burns cash then. Puke. Keep selling - target price 0p. How on earth can Nomad SP Angel stand for this nonsense and ask us to take it remotely seriously?
Avanti Communications (AVN) is now operating without its founder and, until recently, its CEO, the king of the uber Welsh ricks David Williams. Say what you like about a man with an ego the size of Powys, but he was a good bullshitter. Without him keeping the plates spinning and proimising everyone jam tomorrow, the drowning in debt satellite company which never hits any of its targets, would have been toast years ago.
Investors face a big difficulty as the world is experiencing a record synchronous growth phase, but an increasing number of assets are becoming overvalued just as fundamental risks grow in the background. Should investors continue to dance to the tune of central bank stimulus and low volatility, or prepare to exit?
I cannot get used to calling the company formerly known as Regus the new comedy name of International Workplace Group (IWG). Perhaps David Brent had something to do with the change of name... Anyhow the newish name has not provided much luck today with a 30%+ dumping in the shares.
Despite a conditional takeover offer “of approximately 67-76 pence per share” currently remaining in-play, shares in San Leon Energy (SLE) remain depressed – at a current 25p offer – following recent newsflow.
Lebanese and Middle Eastern-offering restaurant group Comptoir (COM) has announced a pre-costs £2.69 million property auction sale of its central processing unit, with it to “use funds raised from the sale for general working capital purposes and to assess further new restaurant opportunities”. The shares have responded from 16.5p to a current 23.5p…
It is on the LSE Asylum so it must be true. This moderated forum censors readers who say express bearish stances on frauds like Cloudtag (CTAG) and MySquar (MYSQ) but gives its readers free rein to discuss my mother's suicide or to, oh the irony, commit market abuse by knowingly spreading an untruth that I have committed market abuse by telling you to sell as I buy. And like moths to a flame they all leap to discuss this obvious lie in great detail.
On the agenda today as I prepare for my weekly coffee morning with my baby son Joshua and the fit young mums is: Andalas (ADL) a joke broker note, MySquar (MYSQ) another RNS which is all smoke and mirrors and a desperate attempt to prop up the shares but SP Angel refuses to force the company to come clean on the lies in the last RNS and the fraud. Pathetic. I look at Interserve (IRV) and its latest dire news. We did warn you. I "out" the company that was truing to raise $15 million via Cornhill yesterday. I look at former ZAI clients whose days on AIM are numbered and finally I read across from yesterday's Horse Hill trade involving Regency (RGM) and Alba (ALBA) to show just how monstrously overvalued is, out of cash and desperate to place, UK Oil & Gas (UKOG)
Hello, Share Hearties. No mistake about it, Centrica (CNA) is a well-run company and a huge entity. Its market cap is £9.6 billion. But as we know, the expression ‘Too big to fail’ does not always work. Many of us will have lost money on British giants that went pear-shaped, like BT, British Energy, Northern Rock, RBS etc. And Centrica does not seem to me a rosy share to hold or buy at the moment.
Heck it is on twitter so it must be true as you can see below
Specialist recruitment group Prime People (PRP) was a former recommendation on the Nifty Fifty website, though we opted to play it safe and sell towards the end of last year – with macroeconomic and some trading concerns. I today note a (rarely good sign) intra-day “Trading Update” announcement from the company…
Arguing it is positioning “to capitalize on significant projected increases in spending” as suggested by it having “reported a strong set of financial results for the six months ended 30 June 2017”, Ubisense (UBI) “is pleased to announce it has raised £5.5 million (before expenses) from a placing in order to support growth plans and strengthen its balance sheet”. Hmmm, let’s review…
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.
If it sounds too good to be true, it is too good to be true. That brings me to the Cascade (nothing to do with Bill Gates) ramp and Servision (SEV) and a detailed look at why it is utterly worthless. I look at the bogus French bid stories at UK Oil & Gas and how the Froggies are actually dumping the shares ahead of a bailout placing and because they are monstrously overvalued. Its also placing ahoy at Magnolia (MAGP) and Andalas (ADL) which is so shite it makes UKOG look like BP. I look at Blenheim (BNR), the boardroom departures and why its shares are 50% overvalued. Finally I try to work out how soon Condor Gold (CNR) will have yet another placing and why I would not back it at any price.
Some posts on our comments section are so interesting that they merit a wider audience. Overnight Paul Scott, Britain;s top share blogger, served up a really interesting one on ASOS (ASC), prompted by Malcolm Stacey's recent (bearish) article here. This is really very interesting analysis. The great Scott writes:
The past week has shown clearly why MySquar (MYSQ) shares should not be traded on any market, even the AIM Casino. I demonstrated HERE that it had lied to investors in an RNS this month. That lie stands uncorrected. I demonstrated HERE that without any doubt it had committed wholesale securities fraud on July 31. This was chapter and verse stuff and MySquar is now exposed. Yet nothing has happened. As such I have written to my pal the bogus Sheriff of AIM, Mr Marcus Stuttard the head of AIM Regulation
Hello, Share Pilots. There is so many predictions of a earth-shattering share crash on this lively website, that we must all be feeling nervous. We all remember a few black days, only nine years ago, when it began to look as all shares would be worth hardly anything at all. Picture your mind’s desolation if that were to happen again. Here are a few precautions you might take.
If you look at the 2011-2017 gold chart, we are facing the most significant trial yet says gold guru Lior. Gantz We managed to break through support, but that is being re-tested. If we can maintain support, we should see no further resistance up to $1400. This outcome is contingent on what the Federal Reserve does in December.
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...
Many folks seemed to think that Concepta's (CPT) next announcement would be a (lack of) profits warning and/or a placing and the shares have been sold down on that basis. Oh ye of little faith.
Finally, after all these years, I have hit upon a 50% profit system, and it was discovered when I was buying almond milk. (I DO live in Islington.) So I am at Sainbury's, and they have posted signs all over the tills: "We do not accept the old £1 coin." Yet some poor sod was trying to buy his kale smoothie (Islington, right?) but the cashier was denying his coins.
In this bearcast I look at a 200 page report out last week from the FCA. It examines saving and borrowings level of our fellow citizens by age group and is truly alarming. I look at5 its data and what that means for us all and it only makes me all the more bearish about the debt bomb upon which we sit
At no-one is watching O'Clock on Friday the insolvent fraud African Potash (AFPO) issued three announcements one of which is that its shares will re-start trading on the NEX lobster pot. This is the return of the living dead. I examine those releases which show that Potash is insolvent as well as a company that lies routinely and commits fraud. It is worthless but what does this say about NEX Markets too?
A piece of good news is posted by our friends in Kosovo, Fox Marble (FOX). It says that the advance payment of $500,000 it was promised by OM Enterprises , a leading tile manufacturer and distributor based in Calcutta has arrived. This is part of a deal announced on the 28 September 2017 when OM Enterprises agreed, to purchase 5,000 tonnes of material over three years. As part of the agreement, OM committed to a $500,000 advance payment.
Financial guru Per Wimmer is invested in the natural resource space and has seen both the good and bad times. He has worked with many entrepreneurs in the mining space. Wimmer says, “From an investment point of view you have to do your homework. Investigate the stories and the management teams.” He became interested in the mining sector before the last supercycle when he discovered that it was a no-brainer from a supply-demand perspective.
Foundry and engineering group Chamberlin (CMH) has updated on “overall good levels of demand across the foundry and engineering businesses”, but that “margins within the group’s foundry businesses have been adversely affected by production issues”. The shares have, unsurprisingly, responded lower, but the potential value looks to justify a buy...
Mail, parcels and logistics operator DX Group (DX.) has announced results for its year ended 30th June 2017, a self-described “especially challenging period”. These ain’t going to be good then…
