African Potash (AFPO) saw its Nomad Cantor Fitzgerald quit on September 7 and it is still yet to find a replacement who will sign off on its bogus and untruthful press releases. If no-one steps up to the plate by December 7 its shares are suspended and a month later they will be booted off AIM. African says it is confident it will find a replacement Nomad but just in case... the shysters have been busy.
The great bear raider is a charitable soul and is doing his very best to explain to Cloudtag (CTAG) owning morons how death spirals work for frauds like the one they are invested in. What a nice guy Shakoor is, spending his valuable time educating the (soon to be) poor and stupid. Give the man a bloody knighthood for services to the intellectually challenged. Saint Waseem explains thus.
Provider of surveillance technologies, Digital Barriers (DGB) has announced results for the six months ended 30th September 2016 including “it is clear that we have now established a strong organic growth engine”, though later also stating “organic revenues… were broadly flat at £6.9m”. Hmmm…
Oh dear, AIM-listed jam- (and product) tomorrow (or sometime, maybe) CloudTag (CTAG) closed last night notching up (or, perhaps down) a bid price of just 6.75p per share. This might be causing a few headaches over at L1 Towers as it seeks to convert its remaining £1.2 million of convertible notes from Tranche 1 of its death spiral funding package. My plan to become a death spiral financier on the Casino seems to have hit a nasty problem – that of headroom in already existing share issuance authorities of the investee company running out and leaving me lobster-potted in unconvertible notes. Of course, I can “persuade” the company to increase the authorities, but time is of the essence: I want to offload ASAP and bank my bunce.
Last updating on fresh meat and food-to-go retailer, Crawshaw (CRAW) in September as the shares fell below 35p I particularly noted a first 7 weeks of the second half -15.8% like-for-like sales setback. With the company noting a further share price decline towards 20p, there is now a further “Trading update”…
Given what we now know about the guaranteed sales order from Second Chance and the binding heads of terms deal with Cities, I just had to have a chuckle at the content of an RNS released by AIM-listed jam-tomorrow (and product some time thereafter) CloudTag (CTAG).
I must rush. Woodlarks beckons and then it is Greece. But first I look at: Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO) in light of last night's bombshell HERE, TrakM8 (TRAK ) - chatting to Paul Scott - Pantheon Resources (PANR), Bushveld Minerals (BMN), FastForward (FFWD), Jim Mellon's reported comments and Mosman oil & Gas (MSMN).
Prompted by Waseem's very legitimate points about censorship on the LSE Bulletin Board I am asked to explain the madness and the metrics behind what is going on over on that asylum. And that I do in this bonus podcast.
Engineering group Hayward Tyler (HAYT) has recently been “pleased to announce a series of contract wins, totalling in excess of £4.5m which… confirm that momentum is continuing to build”. However, the shares remain down on the year at a current 83.5p…
Thanks to @MarkTaber_FII and @WShak1 for the link. This explains how a death spiral wipes you out. Please take note investors in Cloudtag
Seeking to further bolster its defence against a 740p per share offer from Malaysian company Kuala Lumpur Kepong Berhad, M. P. Evans (MPE) has made an “announcement of independent valuer’s valuation and dividend policy”...
Advanced Oncotherapy's (AVO) much ramped JV with China based Sinophi is falling apart in the most embarrassing of ways. Advanced announced its first deal with Sinophi on March 25 2015, a statement made by Sinophi should have the FCA and AIM regulation crawling all over this one.
Hello Share Pushers. There seems no decline in the popularity of pizzas. They are easy to buy and easy to eat. And Britons, together with probably the rest of the world, will take the easy way out if we can, while gastronomic considerations often take a back seat.
I am beginning to miss Charles Clark the former CEO of Rosslyn Data Technologies ( RDT), the man who had forgoitten about his career in pornography. His successor Roger Bullen is long on the yadda, yadda, yadda in today's trading statement but misses out on what we really want to know. That is a bad sign.
As I consider my new career as a death spiral financier on AIM, I am watching developments at AIM-listed jam-tomorrow (if it ever has a product to sell) stock CloudTag and its funding deal with L1 with great interest. Boy, those death spiral chaps are clever!
In this bearcast I start with yesterday's party with my wife's colleagues, the Guardian reading sociology lecturers. I was biting my lip hard. Then it is onto Trakm8 (TRAK) and a general point about acquisitive companies - the specifics of my latest triumph are covered HERE. Then it is onto Cloudtag (CTAG) and a detailed look at the numbers for Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO) in terms of when it will run out cash, then onto Boxhill (BOX) and more questions for sleazy Lord Razzall. I then cover Premier Oil (PMO) and the stock that left podcasting share ramper Justin the Clown living in a cardboard box, Andalas Energy (ADL)
I recently noted shares in powered access equipment rental group Lavendon (LVD) soaring on a takeover offer, but that only 12.3% support was reported and that the offer looked far from certain to succeed. There have since been further developments in that move from TVH Group, but also now a possible rival offer...
Cloudtag (CTAG) shareholders might expect that Amit Ben Haim, the supposedly superstar CEO, would be wholly focused on building Cloudtag’s business but based on filings at Companies House he has a number of other directorships. Let's look at how a few other businesses led by the great man are doing....
The surprise paper currency money-grab by the Indian authorities has intensified the Indians public’s perception of a corrupt, overly-bureaucratic, and ineffective government and the suspicion that government paper money is ultimately worthless (which of course it is) will have gained immeasurable credence. An accelerating decline in the purchasing power of the rupee is the most likely economic consequence for Mr Modi, ultimately destabilising for both the country and his government. Globally, not just in India, Our entire monetary system depends on trust.
Over the weekend I urged AIM Regulation and the FCA to open a formal enquiry into market abuse and securities fraud by the AIM uber-fraud Cloudtag (CTAG). This morning I have sent an urgent missive to AIM Regulation and its hapless boss Marcus Stuttard asking why Cloudtag is not being forced to postpone its General Meeting allowing it to issue more shares.
What will Father Christmas be putting in the stockings of the writers of ShareProphets, nine share tips, plus what sexism at the BBC
So Carillion (CLLN) has gone tits up. You do rather feel for its 19,500 employees but as folks work out what happens next there is an orgy of recriminations. What lessons do you learn?
It only took 15 days but I have just received my first lawyer's letter of the year, via email. So here is a little quiz. Who sent the letter:
So yesterday saw Joshua go to his first proper football match - Brislington Ladies vs West Ham Ladies. A full photo report will follow later but the language from the Essex Girls in claret and blue was not very lady like. Listeners, I was shocked. On the markets I look in detail at Versarien (VRS), Greatland Gold (GGP), Velocys (VEL), RM2 (RM2) and as well as Nomates Neil Woodford I also have some Julie Meyer news, I fear that "Praise Be the Lord" may be about to send me a letter.
Whenever a relatively small oil and gas company manages to raise a substantial amount of money it gets my attention, especially when you consider what the market has been like for this sector in recent times.
A hat tip to Waseem Shakoor for the graphic below. Carillion (CLLN) went bust today. Greatland Gold (GGP) has seen its shares halve as Newmont has pulled out of a jv. So what else do folks owning these two stocks own? See below.
Andrew Monk's VSA floated AIQ on the Standard List last week. Its shares soared 1000% and were suspended. As Andrew notes, through the passive investment vehicle RRR I own shares in AIQ (about £10 worth - CORRECTION I am told it is £1841 worth!). I will try to sell the lot as the valuation is insane. But Monk wants to defend his corner so before our writers really go to town - and I am on their side - here is Monkey in his private email to clients today...
To understand why 2018 will be a catastrophe, imagine a magnificent mansion built with the finest materials and craftsmanship and furnished with the most expensive furniture, carpets and decorated with finest art. Now imagine this mansion is built on quicksand. It will have a brief shining moment and then sink slowly before finally collapsing under its own weight.
Hello, Share Pilers. Even though you must be making dollops of money from shares, given the perky Footsie, some of you are still scrimping a few quid a month, by avoiding a life-saving subscription to this magnificent website. That makes no sense, as it will help you avoid making slips which could put you back to square one again.
Last week’s flotation of AIQ (AIQ) on the LSE’s standard list raised a lot of questions. For a start there was demand for the stock, but apparently no stock available to buy: it seems the registrar had yet to send out certificates and so the shares rocketed until they were suspended. But after much digging, there appears to be rather more to the story than the listing of a bare Cayman Islands shell. Where to start?
Clearly, the whole AIQ (AIQ) IPO was a farce the way it has been handled and having also been digging around, there is more to come but I will leave it in the excellent hands of Nigel to report further on the dodginess here. I will just turn my hand to a bit of poetry inspired by Monk’s defence this morning and by recent Twitter hilarity.
I previously wrote on Carclo (CAR) in late 2016 – noting the company stating some encouragement but that credibility needed to be regained. Today a trading update for its year ending 31st March 2018 and…
Despite the scepticism previously exhibited on this stunning website, I would not be in a rush to sell shares in Versarien (VRS). Even though yesterday’s leap was approaching 35%. That’s normally a signal for this old punter to trouser the profits. But this is one of those mystery shares which could go either way, and I don’t welcome the pain of maybe selling too quickly.
Investors who believed all the hype surrounding Greatland Gold (GGP) received a nasty shock this week when the share price collapsed, but for many of us who have been around the market for a while it didn’t really come as much of a surprise.
North of the Border, www.scottishhousemove.co.uk is going after Purplebricks (PURP) big time. Its homepage boasts thatr it will undercut Purplebricks by £750 and carries a stream of dismal reviews from allagents.co.uk for its larger rival. Then it really goes on the attack as you can see below.
Having taken a look at the prospectus for the flotation of AIQ (AIQ) on the Standard list in part 1 we now move on to Mama Captain, Barrel2U, Mama Harbour and iBuddee. These outfits have faced allegations of being ponzi/MLM (multi-level marketing)/pyramid/money game schemes.
There's been an accelerated bookbuild which has seen Adam Reynolds and a number of close allies place out all their stock in React PLC (REAT). The shares we own were not placed out. We will only sell after advising you to do so.
