For just £5, NEW HOT share tip out TOMORROW (Friday) at 2PM - Don't miss out!

Four times in the past three or four months we have advised our readers to bank big gains on shares we tipped - the one before the one before last was a 77% profit (offer to bid ) in just 12 days. But we are not perfect. Only folks living in council houses but boasting of their million pound investments on Bulletin Boards get it right all the time.

New Bulletin Board Moron of the week PRIZE contest graciously sponsored by Disgraced share Ramper Roger Lawson again

Former ShareSoc chairman Roger Lawson, who has threatened to sue Tom Winnifrith, is the sponsor of this week's Bulletin Board Moron contest. Yes he sponsored last week's contest as well but the disgraced share ramper is such a prize dick and still has a few of the Globo sharesw he promoted so thusiastically to hand out as a prize so Roger is back again.

Advanced Oncotherapy – Bracknor gone, new loan for £3.9m. Is all suddenly rosy in the garden? Er…

AGM day for AIM-listed Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO) and it has pulled something out of the hat. The shares have shot higher, death spiral outfit Bracknor is history and Advanced doesn’t look like going bust now for at least 4 months. But is the deal as good as believed? Er..no.

EXPLOSIVE: Nyota - here is the document that damns Peterhouse and Beaumont Cornish as not fit for purpose

Thanks to the Winnileaks service I am able to bring you a document that shows that Nomad Beaumont Cornish and broker Peterhouse have misled investors, costing mug punters tens of thousands of pounds and as such both firms should lose theoir license to practice.

Optibiotix - another day, another deal, O Hara confirms the ARM model - BUY

OptiBiotix (OPTI) has announced another sales deal. Like others it is small to start with but will build up and this grows more and more reminiscent of the early days of ARM. Check out the Steve O'Hara quote at the end of the release.

British Land Seems Undervalued and Might Be Worth Building On

Hello, Share Cinchers. It’s been a while since I last commended British Land (BLND) to you. I don’t regret that, though the share was falling at the time and has yet to really rebound. The company deals in what they are not making any more of and it owns it around the UK, including where it’s most costly: London.

Nyota - shamed Nomad & Broker Quit but Winnileaks suggests they are not telling you everything

The Nomad and broker to AIM Casino listed Nyota Minerals (NYO) have today announced that they will cease to act as of August 17. So Nyota has one month from then to get new advisers or its shares will be booted off the market. Nyota may well be a worthless bag of shit but it is what the Nomad, disgraced scumbags Beaumont Cornish, and broker Peterhouse Corporate Finance are NOT telling you that is the real scandal.

ADVFN does not want to take money from neo paedophiles - well done

I flagged up a while back how some neo-nonce made inappropriate comments on the ADVFN Bulletin Board about my daughter turning 16 - see HERE. What amazed me were the comments that appeared elsewhere suggesting that - as with death threats received - "while there is no excuse for this , you do ask for it." Truly some folks are morally bankrupt. But not ADVFN.

Advanced Oncotherapy now just 10p to sell. When will Bracknor walk – or has it already?

Cynical Bear wonders whether there might be a read across to AIM-listed Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO) from today’s news from suspended-pending-clarification Kin Group (KIN) in the wake of its announcement that its funding partner had walked because the share price had fallen so far. Certainly, given the cash-back situation for any loan note conversion by Bracknor into Advanced shares there looks to be a point at which the situation breaks down..

EVR Holdings: Where’s the bloody app – is this just a warrant exercise vehicle?

A couple of people have asked me for my views since I called the top for EVR Holdings (EVRH) a few months back HERE, following the recent Microsoft and Sony announcements. Well, the more interesting news to me is a recent interview by the CEO with Music Ally (HERE) which hints at further delays, presumably as it’s taking longer than envisaged for all the connected guys to sell their warrants! Let me explain.

Kin Group – on the verge of ‘kin disaster as shares suspended. You were warned…

On 15th May the renamed from Fitbug Holdings, Kin Group (KIN) was “pleased to announce that it has secured up to £1.125 million (before expenses) of additional funding”. I bet it was – as I noted this bailout funding, with also amongst the conditions “the closing bid price of the company's ordinary shares (as reported by Bloomberg) not being below £0.001 (0.1 pence) for any five consecutive trading days on or prior to the relevant issue date” and concluding it remains bargepole ahoy. The shares had now slid towards 0.05p – and there’s a “Statement re. Suspension” announcement. Uh oh…

Kefi - Project Funding for Tulu Kapi secured: game on! BUY

To those who sold we could say "oh ye of little faith" but we cannot entirely blame you, Kefi Minerals (KEFI) has taken a good while to deliver but it has now done so in spades. The company has announced that it has signed terms for $135 million of project funding with Oryx Management Limited to finance and operate all the on-site infrastructure at the Company's Tulu Kapi Gold Project in Ethiopia. The planned financing package also includes funding finance charges during a 30-month construction and production ramp-up period. Game on!

Wincanton's Softened Share Price May Be a WIN-ner for You

Hello Share Swivellers. Wincanton (WIN) is not a horse racing set-up, but a haulier and warehouse provider. Doesn’t sound too exciting, until you realise how much modern retailers rely on somewhere to put their stuff before they sell it over the internet.

Plant Impact – following share slump from 35p on Friday… Potential Capital Raise at 31p. Over to blink-182…

Following a far from routine “Third Quarter Trading Update” last month which saw shares in Plant Impact (PIM) slide, they recently looked to have stabilised at around 35p – that was until Friday when they strangely slumped to sub 30p. Or is that now ‘strangely… until today’?...

Advanced Oncotherapy - is that the whiff of panic I smell at death spiral provider Bracknor?

Shares in Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO ) are again tumbling on this fine summer's day. Oh what joy it is to be alive. 350p at peak ramp less than two years ago, they are now just 10.75p to sell. Ouch, I just love the smell of burning share certificates belonging to Bulletin Board Morons in the morning. So what crisis looms? Take your pick.

Andalas - the Neville Chamberlain of the AIM casino: placing ahoy

I have in my hand a little piece of paper which means peace in our time said Andalas (ADL) boss Dave "the rule breaker" Whitby as he announced yet another great deal for his company. But like all the other pieces of paper that he has waved in front of his labotomised army of groupies led by cardboard box dwelling sheep shagger Justin the Clown, it is just a worthless piece of paper - just like an Andalas share certificate. Hat tip to Brokerman Dan for that joke.

On Borrowed Time

There are a number of things you don’t want to hear a central banker say. One of these was recently spoken by Janet Yellen when she said “I don’t believe we will see another financial crisis in our lifetime.” That has to be up there with Irving Fisher’s seminal observation of 17 October 1929 when he said "Stock prices have reached what looks like a permanently high plateau" or John Maynard Keynes’ equally adept forecast from 1927 that "We will not have any more crashes in our time." We are in the Mother of all bubbles and in relation to equity and bond markets we can define these bubbles by longevity (how long has the Bull Run lasted), or valuation (how expensive is the market now).

Central Asia Metals looks a great longer term investment in copper

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.

MediaZest – “Project Completion” update, what about some insight on results for a year finished approaching four months ago?

“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.

R4E - Very good news on the banking front: At up to 1.6p BUY

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.

SHOCKING: Nyota - the killer emails: Peterhouse has defrauded investors and misled them

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.

The Mercantile Ports & Logistics fraud - Arden partners now on the record

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.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: The ponzi of the UK state pension, 15 million job losses and the failure of the British State

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?

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast - The PLC Death List Update - 9 new entrants

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:

I stay short of UK Oil & Gas - I'm a Russian and the BBMs are the Germans in the snow

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.

Nyota – former Chairman selling ahead of suspension - what a smart trade!

Yesterday at 5.57pm this RNS was released by AIM-listed (for now) Nyota Minerals (NYO). It followed this RNS at 7am that morning. Nothing extraordinary, two TR-1s issued but it seems that former chairman has been offloading shares issued to him by the company in lieu of director fees in short order.
