I see that AIM-listed Milestone Group (MSG) has had its shares marked down below their nominal price of 0.1p today: they are now 0.09 – 0.1p bid to offer. Given that the company has a desperate need for cash, that’s a problem – especially when it passed on the opportunity to put resolutions for a capital reorganisation to its forthcoming AGM.
Previously writing on The Real Greek and Franco Manca operator Fulham Shore (FUL) in September it was ANOTHER restaurant group profit warning. Yesterday afternoon (3:36pm) saw a “Trading Statement” announcement from the company. Uh oh…
I am a bear of Pantheon Resources (PANR) as explained again in today's bearcast. The City's No 1 oil analyst Zac "the knife" Phillips of SP Angel does not seem to be much of a fan either. In his morning email he opines:
Writing on industrial chains and related power transmission products supplier Renold (RNO) in October it was Again “Trading Update” = Profit Warning. Now another “Trading Update” announcement…
It’s amazing what can be done when one’s back is against the wall. For the third month running, the guys at RM2 International (RM2) have found some cash from behind the sofa and can put some money in the meter. Its RNS this morning is its most upbeat in a while although I'm not sure it will alter the long-term outcome.
The Mrs plays Radio 4's Today programme to annoy me. Today it was some lazy and greedy lefty teacher bleating on about how overworked and underpaid she was. Try being an entrepreneur - the folks whose efforts pay your bloated wages - you pampered bitch. From that I look at IQE (IQE) and why Getafix is wrong with his comments today, Pantheon Resources (PANR), Polemos (PLMO), RM2 (RM2), Andalas (ADL), Katoro (KAT) and Renold (RNO).
Sooner or later UK Oil & Gas (UKOG) will have to fess up that Broadford Bridge flow rates are not very good at all and its shares will slump. While we wait for that let's just ask who is lying about a sidetrack well?
Writing on Starcom (STAR) last month it was from “breakeven position or a small loss” to now a loss “materially higher” than this – with a placing inbetween!. The remote tracking and monitoring technology company has now announced its 2017 results…
Bluebird Merchant Ventures (BMV), has served up more good news from the land of the dog eaters, that is to say South Korea.
Hello Share Shelvers. When Uncle Tom writes about IQE (IQE) we know we can expect a disparagement of its record on making money. He questions the company’s valuation, believing the shares to be worth less than they are currently valued at. That’s a reasonable view and it’s based on the fundamentals. But does it give proper credit to the company’s future potential? I think not - which is why I wrote a piece suggesting that shorters were taking a big risk with IQE.
Writing on InnovaDerma (IDP) in January with the shares towards 230p, I concluded at least ahead of further comfort of the second half weighting expected actually being delivered, I avoid. Now a 10:13 “Trading Statement”. Uh oh…
You know that I view soft soap paid for interviews with folks like Proactive in a deeply negative way. But Steve O' Hara of Optibiotix (OPTI) comes, I believe, across well and explains the import of recent announcements. In this interview O Hara gives the sort of hard numbers I have used in my writings on this stock. Paul Scott shows an extremer double standard in describing this as "nudge, nudge wink, wink" - I just called it talking to a company which is what anyone sensible would do. I explain why Scott is talking cock and applying double standards HERE. As for Optibiotix, do your maths listen to the whbole interview ( the last 30 seconds are very interesting), the shares are incredibly cheap at 62p offer and will go to well over 100p this year if half of what O'Hara says in this interview comes good. BUY.
I do try to be balanced from time to time and despite all his troubles, there’s been a few green shoots for Neil Woodford in relation to Woodford Patient Capital Trust (WPCT) in recent weeks, most notably with a substantial round at Atom Bank…….although much more funding is still required.
AIM-listed Tern (TERN) has announced a placing this morning, raising £650,000 (gross) at 2.55p, and that it has terminated its death spiral facility with immediate effect. This is very good news indeed. I don’t suppose shareholders will be feeling the love just yet, given the destruction of Tern’s share price since last summer, but at least the rot seems to have been stopped.
Roll on the Easter break in just over three weeks I say because those of us who track, appraise and opine about corporate names from around the world have now racked up two months' worth of earnings appraisal...and still they come thick and fast in the UK. So another pot pourri offering from me.
Paul Scott is having a go at me on twitter and on the comments section here - which I publish as I believe in free speech - but I put him straight on what research means and why he is - not for the first time - applying a double standard. Come on old boy - be fair and look at the actual facts. Then I look at Vela (VELA) and what its share price says about sentiment on the AIM Casino. En passant I cover the dog Arian (AGQ) Finally a detailed look at Countrywide (CWD) - dire statement today - and where that leaves Purplebricks (PURP). Which is the bigger short? A tweet from Scott is below:
I realise that the crony capitalists round at Nomad Northland have a few things on their mind, such as who will pay the wages this month, but how on earth can they have signed off on the worst death spiral deal I have ever seen where the counter-party is a man who the SEC nailed for "defrauding investors." I despair.
Having successfully shorted UK Oil & Gas (UKOG) down to 1.6p, bear raider Waseem Shakkortt still sees 65% or more downsidee from here. And he says this long running farce will soon be over. Was stated on a BB post today:
Andalas Energy (ADL) should be issuing a statement about its own solvency and other matters flagged up HERE. This company, as it stands, is insolvent. But this is AIM so instead....

Value investing is how you make money from shares. Any other approach is not investing but speculating and is, by definition, hit and miss. So do you want to know what Britain's leading value investors are thinking and what shares they are buying and selling? Today's special opportunity is.... Three great value investors will be on stage together discussing how they select stocks and what they are buying and selling at the Global Group UK Investor Show in London on April 21. They are: Paul Scott, Britain's top share blogger, Nigel Wray, the man known as Britain's Buffett, and Dr Paul Jourdan the boss at the hugely successful Amati fund management operation.
From the FCA's spreadsheet of short positions required to be disclosed to it, the following shows the shorted AIM shares with positions from 2017 and thus far in 2018 (by net short position %) - and if this position has increased (red), reduced (green) or remained unchanged (black) since last week...
Soorry it is rugby day. C'mon Ireland. As you can see Joshua is getting himself ready...
This morning, on such a snowy day, I was thinking how nice it would be to go somewhere quiet and sit, read the paper, and drink my coffee without being bothered by people. As it happens, I live just down the street from the Business Design Centre in Islingtion, and it is Master Investor day, so that would fit my plan perfectly.
The market was remarkably sanguine about the operational update served up by Telit (TCM) this week and at 160p the shares remain a compelling sell.
A Trading Update from Veltyco Group (VLTY) a few weeks ago noted, following continued “strong” trading in December, results “significantly ahead of market expectations”. However, having exceeded 100p last year, the shares are currently available at 89p to buy and this looks to represent an opportunity ahead of April-expected results. BUY at 89p with a target to sell of 125p.
Hello, Share Walkers. Anyone not subscribing the measly £5.99 a month to reap all the trading advantages of this beautiful website is probably taking an unacceptable risk. Especially at this time of year, when you still have a chance to sell your losers to cut your capital gains bill.
I just can’t help fearing for AIM-listed Cloudbuy (CBUY) and its shareholders. Here we are heading for two years after a £5.75 million rescue refinancing by Mr Roberto Sella and now post a further rescue refinancing last December (another £3.5 million committed, of which £1.7 million has been drawn) and I still wonder if the company will ever make any money. Yesterday morning we had its FY17 numbers: they are not as awful as the last lot, but it still look pretty bad.
It's been an ongoing trope on this site to note when mainstream media ties itself into knots trying to avoid mentioning the word ShareProphets. Instead, they tend to refer to our dozen writers as a 'blogger' or, in more convoluted cases, as 'an Italian newspaper.' But finally! We have a brave newspaper, the Western Telegraph, in Haverfordwest has referred to our name in full. No wonder that they were named the best weekly newspaper in Wales.
Amerisur Resources (AMER) has certainly failed to live up to the expectations of its investors and the share price has been in a downward spiral for several years now.
If anyone from Jim Mellon's organisation wishes to visit UK Investor Show we give them admittance. But Jim's minions are desperate to stop us from seeing what a shambles and disaster his event yesterday has become. While Mellon's henchmen stopped Darren Atwater from attending we got another photographer in and what she produced shows why Mellon is so desperate to hide the ghastly truth about his heavily loss making event.
