Shares in Proxama (PROX) currently feature on today’s top gainers list on the back of a “Contract Renewal” announcement. Hmmm, what’s the detail here?...
Our very own Gary Newman nailed this spot on at the weekend flagging up that an almighty pump in Arian Silver (AGQ) was underway. Our sober, harsh but fair coverage contrasts well with the really sordid rampfest that saw the shares pushed ahead ahead of a placing today raising £600,000 at just 0.5p.
Every AIM company must have a Nominated Adviser, a NOMAD, to retain its listing. A Nomad is an FCA regulated financial adviser which charges an arm and a leg as a retainer to ensure that every RNS issued is 1005 accurate and that the company also complies with all the other AIM Rules. Not, as the LSE has made clear, that there is any downside in breaking all the rules or telling outright lies. That brings us to UK Oil & Gas (UKOG).
AIM-listed Frontera (FRR) has announced the appointment of WH Ireland (WHI) as broker to the company. I’m sure they will be very happy together, but in the wake of a series of loan conversions to wipe out debt you might wonder if it is placing ahoy. The good news is that they even tell us that it is!
CyanConnode (CYAN), which describes itself as “the world leader in narrowband radio mesh networks”, has updated on the first half of 2017; “a busy period for the company with key existing relationships strengthened and the company's global reach enhanced”. Sounds encouraging, so why are the shares currently lower at 0.15p?...
The AIM casino has hosted the London stockmarket's biggest fraud for almost 40 years (Quindell) and a raft of smaller frauds in recent years. One might almost say that fraud is endemic. Yet, in a consultation paper published this week, the London Stock Exchange (LSE) has insisted that it is not within the remit of its own AIM Regulation department to tackle fraud or indeed do anything about it. This shows a complete contempt for investors - we bank the fees, you bank the losses.
I haven’t looked at UK Oil and Gas (UKOG), and more specifically the Horse Hill oil field, for quite a while and a lot has changed in the meantime, so I thought it about time that I revisited it.
Early this year we showed the ten top shorted London-listed shares at the start of 2017. Following the recent half-year and crash in the top one, Carillion (CLLN), how are they performing?...
Hello Share Scudders. What does Taptica International (TAP) actually do? It states it does ‘data-focused marketing solutions’.
Having at the end of last week announced a conditional, bailout (and thus dilution-extraordinaire – a gross £1.75 million at 1.75p per share) placing, blur Group (BLUR) has now announced immediate effect “Board Restructuring”…
Following my initial piece on the Woodford-backed Eve Sleep (EVE) two weeks ago, I thought I would comment on today’s trading update which outlined great growth but it’s what it doesn’t say that worries me a tad.
Shares in cloud-based software business integrating communications into CRM platforms, CloudCall (CALL) are currently accelerating beyond 100p on the back of a first half of 2017 trading update…
The Quindell boys are back in town, as they buy a worthless little business, Business Advisory Services (BAS), from Watchstone - having netted £100 million from the originalheist. To celebrate their adventureering, they are sponsoring this week's Bulletin Board Moron contest.
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.
Last night at no-one-is-watching o’clock AIM-listed Parallel Media (PAA) slipped out a correction to its major shareholders listed in the recent full-year results for 2016. Actually, it was a major correction: 33% of the company!
It was my great privilege to speak at The UK Investor Show this year, along with the illustrious bears and short-selling raiders Lucian Miers, Matthew Earl and Gabriele Grego. For my choice of bear tips, I again went for the easy target of Fastjet (FJET) (down by over 70% since I first mentioned it in November 2015), but my new tip was the rarely-discussed pallet company, RM2 International (RM2).
Don't these fools ever learn? For chancers and crooks like Darren Winters, the shysters at Globo, Blinkx, Quindell and Daniel Stewart and for lyin Chris Cleverley and Lord Hain of sleaze and for so many others, sending me a fascist lawyers letter never works out well. That is not for them at least. But it seems there is one born every day. A new letter is in demanding that three years of articles be removed, that damages and costs be paid and that I put my name to a grovelling apology dictated by this poltroon. Who do you think is daft enough to have sent it? Vote now in our latest poll with a deadline of midnight tonight.
Falanx (FLX) has finally released its results for the year to March 31. The numbers were in line but it is the forward looking statement that is the dazzler. That is not reflected in the share price which came off by more than 10% on the session at 6.75p-7p. We think the market called that wrong and here is why.
Tim Martin is again our4 hero of the day, speaking out against the FCA,m the CBI, the Financial Times and other remoaners" who are trtying to dilute Brexit with disingeneous comment. On the occassion of a trading statement from his JD Wetherspoon (JDW) chain of ghastly plastic pubs, Martin has let rip. The great man states:
The distracting noise and untruthful commentary surrounding the results from Big Sofa (BST) a couple of weeks ago has died down and the shares have started a re-rate - they are now 25p-26.5p and if you can get any stock at all at 25p or better you should do so. We continue to see a minimum price target of 50p + to sell. Today we have news of two heavy hitters coming on board.
It has now emerged that Brokerman Dan attacked what he thought I said about Angus Energy (ANGS) without actually listening to what I actually said despite us giving him a 24 hour pass for bearcast access. He spouts an awful lot of piffle in his latest article but declines to print corrections. Poor Dan. Oddly on one major point he is almost correct. Moving on, I also look at Cenkos (CNKS), Frontera (FRR), Rosenblatt (RBGP), i3 Energy (I3E), MySquar (FRAUD), Online Blockchain (OBC) and Kellan (KLN).
I have had one of those days which happen all too often when I think I want to retire. Blame Laurence Smith. All is explained in this podcast. I look at today's news from Premaitha (NIPT) which is certainly a bolt from the blue, comment on the nature of corporate lying, ref Frontera (FRR), cover RM2 (RM2), Optibiotix (OPTI), Sosandar (SOS) and Online Blockchain (DOG).
Having demanded we bring back this contest, once again, Juicin Drumroll failed to win last week but he came second and tried very hard as you can see HERE. So he is clearly desperate to win a semi naked photo of Britain's leading share blogger before lunchtime, Thirsty Paul Scott. So we will give him a fifth and final chance. Can anyone stop Juicin from winning this week? Okay here is the challenge for you all:
Yesterday Frontera Resources (FRR) received a second lawyers letter from convertible loan note provider Yorkville in regard to the $2.65 million outstanding debt on which it is now in default. The letter accused Frontera of lying to investors. Frontera has not disclosed that letter, or its contents nor has it repaid the sums due to Yorkville Instead it has issued another RNS which is simply misleading. It is doubling down on lying and apparently Nomad cairn is fine with that?
Mrs Stacey says that I have been spending too much time in the Punter’s Return reading dull articles about shares and that we need a break. She says that I need inspiration for my next novel and so has suggested that we head off on one of those holidays advertised during Midsomer Murders for a more mature and sophisticated audience.
One of my few vices in life is sugar. I have parlayed this into stock selection via a recommendation on Tate & Lyle (TATE), which I last wrote up HERE. The company held a capital markets day late last week and the one presentation slide that stood out was one which talked about 'sugar replacement is a key market opportunity globally'. Well of course it is. Gluttons like me want to both have our cake and eat it and one way to do this - without becoming significantly obese - is to focus on non conventional sugar options, a market which Tate & Lyle has been active in with its Sucralose product.
“Specialist full service supplier of technical fluid power products and services”, Flowtech Fluidpower (FLO) updated on trading in July – but the half-year results announcement today is currently accompanied by an approaching 30% share price fall, towards 120p. Hmmm…
I see that ShareSoc is praising Tern (TERN) for holding a conference call to which anyone can dial into and at which Al Sisto will answer pre-submitted questions. I wonder..
Shares in Neil Woodford uber dog RM2 (RM2) are up by 59% at 0.875p. That means that the market cap has jumped by £14.4 million to £38.8 million on the back of a contract win termed “significant” but which clearly is not and does not change the fact that this company is five minutes away from midnight, that is to say bankruptcy. It’s got to be placing ahoy.
On tipping shares in redT Energy (RED) at a 7.4p offer price in July we noted we looked for German project funding and other orders to drive a re-rate. The shares are currently higher, above 9p, on the back of an “Update on German Grid Project Funding”…
CyanConnode (CYAN) “is pleased to announce” both “the receipt of a $11.6 million purchase order relating to a smart metering deployment by an Indian state-owned utility” and “the consolidation of its European operations”. Hmmm…
Writing on results from MediaZest (MDZ) last month I concluded sell / bargepole, though note the shares currently ahead today on the back of a “Trading update”…
Shares in AIM-listed graphene play Haydale (HAYD) are off again to 44p (mid, last seen) following full year results to June this morning. Following a profit warning in June, when I said this was a bargepole stock at 78p and suggested that we were in for a £6 million loss before tax, cash would be down to around £5 million at year-end and another big cash-call was on the way, let’s see how my Mystic Meg powers are holding up……
“Drunken Sailor” commented to me a few days ago; “I would find it useful if you could do occasional reflective pieces on ones that go wrong and any lessons to learn from them.” OK Drunken. Here goes…
As you may have gathered yesterday, Malcolm’s long-suffering wife reckons that he has been spending too much time in The Punter’s Return and so has organised a holiday in Denmark, Sweden and Russia where Mr Stacey hopes to discover the magic money tree and a theme for his next novel. We left him at Heathrow, but our senior reporter has now updated us on his progress…
We all know UK retail is in a tough spot but problems for Kingfisher (KGF) are ironically not in the UK, where today's half-year numbers were correctly discussed as a 'solid performance' benefiting from continued growth at Screwfix and the self-inflicting wounds at peers that aided B&Q. The trouble is a 15% fall in underlying pre-tax profit mainly due to a 30% fall in profitability in the group's second-largest market France…
Previously writing on LightwaveRF (LWRF) in June it was from “real energy and excitement” to CEO ‘stepping down’ in less than two weeks!, with I concluding even if there is “real energy and excitement within the company”, it’s, as usual, the ability to generate cash which should prove key. On these bases, it’s currently bargepole ahoy / sell. The shares have though just risen on the back of an announcement; “Lightwave rated the best UK HomeKit solution”…
