There are some people who think the stockmarket and shares business is like robbing a bank - all about making money however you go about it. But at a time of year when many of us think about a man who gave the ultimate gift, his life, for others we think that business should also be about giving. And that brings us to Woodlarks and the UK Investor Show. It started with Paul Scott who donated his, very small, speaker fee...
In this video from the storming success that was the 2017 UK Investor Show, in the 'Dragon's Den' companies have a 60 second pitch to the Pizza Hardman Darren Atwater, Tom Winnifrith and Steve Moore for three £1,000 investments. This fourth round features Big Sofa (BST), Ariana Resources (AAU), BMR Group (BMR), Versarien (VRS) and W Resources (WRES).
From the FCA's spreadsheet of short positions required to be disclosed to it, at the start of the year we showed the ten top shorted London-listed shares HERE. The following updates, showing those with a current reported short position of +7%...
In this video from the storming success that was the 2017 UK Investor Show, John Dawson, CEO of Alliance Pharma (APH), is at the podium. And make sure that you keep April 21 2018 free for next year's UK Investor Show.
Okay this is a Proactive Interview so it is not exactly probing. The slippery little twit asking the questions is no Paxman. But we own shed loads of Wishbone Gold shares (WSBN) so, as Richard Poulden gives a very upbeat explanation of where the company is heading, we are happy to give it the oxygen of publicity. Enjoy.
Big Sofa (BST) is signing major deals but the clowns who manage its PR seem unable to communicate why this is so important to the market. In due course despite the manifest incompetency of Vigo Communications, a firm too cowardly and inept to answer basic questions posed by email, the truth will out and the shares will zoom. But pro tem this is frustrating.

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...

Hello Share Samplers. I’m quite excited about this. This family has now received its Whitbread (WTB) shareholder’s discount card. A good investment that, as I’ve only held the share a few weeks and am already up by 12%. And the added perk is really quite good, as shareholder discounts go.
In this video from the storming success that was the 2017 UK Investor Show, Andrew Bell, CEO of Red Rock Resources (RRR), is at the podium. And make sure that you keep April 21 2018 free for next year's UK Investor Show.
Purplebricks (PURP) is one of a raft of new-breed estate agency companies making some bold and questionable claims in the property market at present but how many of these claims stand close scrutiny and are they even trading within the law?
A month ago, Tom reported the Takeover Panel’s decision that Dave King should make a 20p offer for Rangers International Football Club (RFC) (HERE) and also commented on King’s ridiculous response (HERE). Well, King has point blank refused the request to make a bid but the Panel is not backing down without a fight.
In this video from the storming success that was the 2017 UK Investor Show, David Lenigas of Doriemus (DOR), David Bramhill of Union Jack Oil (UJO), Jonathon Tidswell of Angus Energy (ANGS) and Gary Newman discuss UK Onshore Oil. And make sure that you keep April 21 2018 free for next year's UK Investor Show.
The ShareProphets AIM-China Filthy Forty is set to have yet another casualty – this time MoneySwap (SWAP) which is proposing to follow Taihua (TAIH) and Jiasen (JSI) out of the back door via a cancellation EGM to become the twenty-seventh Casino delisting. But this will be after almost eight months suspended from trading. Oh Oxymorons at AIM Regulation, whatever happened to AIM Rule 41 which says that execution comes at the end of six months’ suspension? Why don’t you just apply your own rules? Does the AIM Rulebook count for nothing these days?
In this video from the storming success that was the 2017 UK Investor Show, in the 'Dragon's Den' companies have a 60 second pitch to Gary Newman, Tom Winnifrith and Steve Moore for three £1,000 investments. This third round features Optibiotix (OPTI), Metal Tiger (MTR), Saffron Energy (SRON), Collagen Solutions (COS) and Wishbone Gold (WSBN).
Slowly, slowly, catchy monkey. Further to my previous piece (HERE), Aidan Earley has updated his blog this week setting out progress on the launch of Newco and the issuance of share certificates to the Worthington shareholders. To be honest, I admire his tenacity and efforts here as it appears to be quite a tortuous route and sometimes I wonder whether it would be easier to defeat the Warlock of Firetop Mountain.
Gold is poised to crack the critically important $1291 level which is a trendline going to back to the all time high on September 22nd 2011 when gold hit $1922 an ounce.
In this video from the storming success that was the 2017 UK Investor Show, Roland Phelps of Galantas Gold (GAL) is at the podium. And make sure that you keep April 21 2018 free for next year's UK Investor Show.
Copper has remained volatile in recent weeks, but is still showing far more strength than we’ve seen in the last couple of years, and I think the upward trend will continue. There are still some concerns about a potential drop in demand, but at the same time we’re not seeing many new copper projects reaching production and I can see further shortages in supply going forwards, barring a worldwide economic meltdown.
I start with the announcement late last night from FastFoward Innovations (FFWD) the overvalued investment company run by my good friend the offshore based asset stripper Mr Jim Mellon. I move on to the FRC dealing with Russell McBurnie the disgraced ex FD of RSM Tenon and discuss book cookers, fraudsters. Sam Antar theories and crime and punishment generally. I look at Akers Biosciences (AKR) where book cooking ahead of a placing is alleged, at Zenith (ZEN) and at LPA (LPA) where i would not bottom fish after today's warning for a variety of reasons. Then I note MySquar (FRAUD) is down to 1.15p and I ask John Meyer of SP Angel once more if he will act or is he happy to wash his hands and turn a blind eye to crime. Tonight is a 6 mile training walk and Joshua and I will do two miles this morning. With Gift aid my charity walk on July 28 has now raised almost £10,000. I explain exactly what that means to Woodlarks. If you have not donated, please chip in now with a tenner to get us over £10,000 HERE
A leading Australian Newspaper has revealed that “broke” estate agents are quitting Purplebricks (PURP) in Oz in droves as the market slows. They claim the business model is flawed. Maybe as the UK residential market slows similar cracks will appear here. Remember Aussie growth is one way Purplebricks claims it will start to move out of the red in a material fashion. Perhaps not. The AFR reports:
Below I republish a legal printout from Singapore where four days of Court time has been reserved for MySquar (MYSQ) boss Eric Schaer and his Rising Dragon company ( which is and has always been involved with MySquar as a loan provider) as they stand accused of fraud from a party claiming back $8,750,770 – a lot of dosh. It gets worse.
You could have made a bit of money off my January reiteration that Dixons Carphone (DC.) was too cheap. The shares have pulled back from a slightly frothy 240p and are now trading just below the 200p level which is really building into a big resistance/support level. Today's numbers complicate matters a little more, with a second attempt by the new CEO to ensure he is starting the job at a suitably depressed profits outlook level by pulling down hopes for the next twelve months to just £300 million pre-tax profit versus not far shy of £400 million in the year just completed and over £500 million for the year before that.
In today's podcast I cover in detail Telit (TCM) and also look at MySquar (MYSQ) partially in light of today's stunning news HERE. I look at Audioboom (BOOM), Frontera (FRR), Woodford Patient Capital Trust (WPCT), Prime People (PRP) and 88 Energy (88E). Tomorrow I will be bored to death by Lucian Miers, he will drone on about West Ham for 6 hours as we complete a 19 mile training walk from Bristol along the Avon to a few miles past Bath. I am building up to my 32 mile walk for Woodlarks with Brokerman Dan on 28 July. Think of my suffering tomorrow and please donate a small sum HERE.
Wishbone Gold (WSBN) has announced 2017 calendar year results showing a loss of $0.91 million – though that reduced from 2016 on sales nearly doubled to $8.2 million and “as we look ahead, we see opportunities for 2018 in all our areas of operation”…
The market doesn’t respond well to any announcements of accounting problems, and the share price of any company releasing such news tends to get hammered. In some cases the resulting drop is justified, but there are also plenty of occasions where there appears to have been a massive over-reaction and that can present a buying opportunity, as long as the underlying fundamentals of the business haven’t changed and it is just a one-off error or omission that won’t negatively impact the company going forwards.
In his morning email to his esteemed clients, Zac “The Knife” Phillips, of SP Angel, the UK’s no 1 oil analyst, has utterly ripped into Mayan Energy (MYN) demanding the sacking of the entire board. The great man opines:
Peter Young was the co founder of Independent Oil & Gas (IOG) and until March of this year sat on its board. He is still its “head of Business Origination.” He, and his wife Fiona who works for charity Social Enterprise UK, are either the UK’s greatest living share traders or just plain insider dealers. The stock in question is Rock Rose Energy (RRE) and I merely print a timeline of phone calls and emails and, as Peter Cook’s version of Judge Cantley in the Jeremy Thorpe trial would put it, “then invite you, ladies and gentlemen of the jury, to go away and consider carefully why these two fine upstanding individuals are not guilty of anything at all but should do themselves a favour and become professional day traders.”
Last year Woodlarks managed to do amazing work despite receiving income of just £126,650. That is less than the disgraced now ex CEO of Oxfam earned (excluding his generous expenses). With that cash it does some amazing work as the video below shows. Brokerman Dan and I want to increase Woodlarks income by 20% in one go by raising £20,000 (+ gift aid) from sponsors for our 32 mile walk on July 28. We are now 39% there and we thank all who have backed us already. If you have not: Please please watch the video and sponsor us now HERE
On 29 June last year Israeli tech-company Ethernity (ENET) joined the AIM Casino at 140p. Today the shares sit at just 30.5p after a profit warning and dire results yesterday. What’s not to like?
The great success that was the 2018 UK Investor Show saw six 'Dragon's Den' sessions where a number of CEOs each gave a 1 minute (well, supposed to be!) pitch and three 'Dragons' at each session each picked a stock for a £1,000 investment. With the show having been on April 21st, here’s a second performance update...
Writing on Akers Biosciences (AKR & NASDAQ - AKER) last month - “decided to withdraw” an initial FDA application… & worse, I concluded to run for the hills from this stock. Now, the shares are slumping again – this time on a “Notification of Class Action” announcement. Uh oh…
Since we started performance-tracking stock tips on our platform, Stockomendation has captured over 14,000 individual broker ratings. From this, we can draw inferences from broker activity and identify companies and sectors that are busier than we’d typically expect. Out of curiosity, we ran some analysis this week using data from January 2015 to June 2018, to see which sectors receive a higher than average number of recommendations for each month in the year. Our research produced some interesting, and unexpected, finds.
Hello Share Smiters. Just before I left school there was a hit song by the Brook Brothers. And now I can’t get it out of my head. It was called Warpaint, all about a girlfriend who overdid her make-up. That could be how today’s choice for your further researches got its name.
Yesterday afternoon, AIM-listed Haydale (HAYD) announced a buy by the wife of one of the NEDs. That should be good news, but I see it as bad news - especially as we all know the company needs to get a placing away and has just announced a crap trading update.
You know the old updating of Shakespeare's seven ages of man speech. Well, the modern version is just four ages - lager, aga, Saga and ga-ga. Saga (SAGA) being a company which provides services for the getting-on-in-years tribe. This tribe is more numerous than it used to be - and becoming even more plentiful.
