Tomorrow’s AIM-related headlines will be dominated by news of New World Oil & Gas’ (NEW) resounding shareholder rejection of its highly controversial placement. While this is cause for much celebration, this story is far from over. New World’s board appears determined to push ahead with the proposed open offer, to save the reckless forward sellers, despite such categorical resistance from the company’s rightful owners. The situation is now more explosive than ever, as illustrated by the figures from the vote.

I got rid of my Marks and Spencer (MKS) shares a few years ago now. They were among my slowest moving stocks of all time.
At No-one is watching O'clock ( 6.29 PM) the news finally came through. Congratulations to Ben "pitchfork" Turney - the EGM of AIM casino posterboy New World Oil & Gas (NEW) has not passed either proposal made by the board.
Sorry is this is a bit personal and short but the Mrs arrived at 3 AM and I have better things to do than natter to you lot all day. However I do have a good few words on Plus500 but also on the nature of the material on this website
Having identified attractions as a recovery play at 73.5p a year ago (see HERE), shares in foundries and engineering group Chamberlin (CMH) exceeded 100p in November. However, now back at 85.5p following results for its year ended 31st March 2015, the following updates post a chat with management…
Last night (after hours, of course) New World Oil and Gas (NEW) issued an RNS to report on the fiasco that was its EGM called to pass proposals which would allow the controversial Placing announced on 29 April to proceed. Every man and his dog knows that there has been a disorderly market in the company’s shares pretty much ever since, and so with speculation rife that the company would have a spot of bother working out who was entitled to vote as massive multiples of the issued share capital traded through the market and even a formal notice from the LSE that shares were not settling in a timely manner, the ShareProphets RNS Translation Service is pleased to help readers understand what is going on. Quotes are in bold with our interpretation in normal script.
AIM favourite Richland Resources (RLD) is now producing sapphires from its Capricorn mine in Queensland and expects to hold its first sales of blue and coloured gemstones in Hong Kong next month. After a long process of transformation, the company, chaired by veteran mining entrepreneur Ed Nealon (of Aquarius Platinum fame), argues Capricorn, part of Australia’s Nardoo gem deposit and currently boasting a formal resource of 21.6 million grammes or 109 million carats, has ‘the potential to become the world’s largest sapphire mine’, citing surveys showing average sapphire prices have risen 75% over the past decade.
Smaller mining companies aren’t exactly in favour at the moment, but I think that Wolf Minerals (WLFE) is well worth a look.
I took notes during New World Oil & Gas’ (NEW) EGM. Although these aren’t a comprehensive record of what turned out to be a very long meeting, they should hopefully provide some insight to those shareholders who were not able to attend.

John Meyer of SP Angel this morning comments on Bushveld, EMED, Kefi, Mwana, Ormonde, South32, Tertiary & Weatherley as well as offering a detailed macro view on the news that is shaping global mining and the AIM mining pond.
One of the more difficult things to do when it comes to trading either fundamentally or technically is to call time on an extended uptrend. This is what shares of BTG have served up over the two years leading into January this year.
Lombard Risk Management (LRM) has announced that “John Wisbey has informed the board of his intention to stand down as Chief Executive and director of the company with immediate effect in order to pursue other opportunities”. We understand differently.
Sirius Minerals is one of those stocks of whom following the trend is likely to work on a technical basis - until the fundamentals spoil the party.
We still don’t know which way the vote from New World Oil & Gas’ (NEW) EGM will go. No doubt recognising that a show of hands would have resulted in defeat of Resolutions 1 & 2, meeting Chairman Peter Sztyk’s first action was to announce a poll. He was well within his rights to do this. The poll results should be available in the near future, but there is one point I have to make, while we wait. Based on what Mr Sztyk said in the meeting, in front of New World’s solicitor and brokers (four of whom were in the room), if Resolution 1 is defeated it is inconceivable that the company can proceed with an open offer in good conscience.

Hello Share Mates. As we flounder along in a rather pedantic time for shares , apart from the pennies and rogue firms hat always provide a bit of excitement on the bleakest days, it’s time to reflect on a few illogical paths that await happy share-shifters like us.
As we prepare to publish a new hot share tip on Tuesday, here is a lesson on a mistake that Steve Moore and I made on the Nifty Fifty website we run. It cost our readers a few quid but we are unapologetic and would do exactly the same again. Let me tell you about Restore PLC.
Detail is slowly emerging from the farcical New World Oil & Gas (NEW) EGM in Jersey today. Criminal market abuser Chris Oil was not present - maybe his passport has already been confiscated. But Ben Turney was attending as were no less than four heavies from broker Cornhill Capital. The bottom line is, knowing that a show of hands would go against the company, it started the meeting by calling a poll - that is to say a vote of those actually casting votes on the two resolutions. However...

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.
