The launch of the ShareProphet's China Filthy Forty is the kind of thing that shows why the financial press fear ShareProphets. Clear and devastating. It sums up ShareProphets as a whole. It also demands an informed readership. Your average ThisIsMoney.co.uk reader isn't going to come across a chart of 40 Chinese companies which IPO'd on AIM, shares in which are almost all underwater, and understand the relevance. This sometimes puts ShareProphets in a bind, where we seem to be wonks speaking to swotters.
So what was Rob Terry doing hooking up with the Bahamas based financial criminals back in 2011 when he floated Quindell (QPP)? Answers on a postcard to the Serious Fraud Office (SFO) I suggest.
We today launch the China AIM Casino Filthy 40 – a way of tracking what a fraud ridden mini cesspit this is. The findings and the tables below will truly shock you and shows what fantasists the idiots running the London Stock Exchange are.
What a huge shock to see Armadale Capital (ACP) conduct a placing yesterday. Of the biggest surprises on AIM this year, Armadale’s fund raising has to be in the top three. There is no way anyone saw this coming. It wasn’t clearly sign-posted across social media at all. The recent 50% rally in Armadale’s share price over a week was definitely driven by fundamentals. The increased liquidity in the stock simply reflected enthusiastic investor demand for a prospective gold miner in the lower reaches of the market…
The FCA now has two reasons to call its colleagues Down Under, at the Australian Securities & Investment Commission (ASIC). First it might like to suggest that perhaps the Australian Women’s cricket team should represent the country in the next Ashes series. Based on recent form, they will certainly offer a greater challenge than their male compatriots. Second, after we pointed out the odd issue or two in Black Mountain Resources’ (BMZ) planned involvement in a so-called subsea salvage operation to retrieve >$1billion worth of lost war gold, perhaps the FCA might like to find out how serious the Australian authorities are in policing their small cap market and protecting British Private investors.
If you want me to analyse a stock for you just drop me a line at [email protected] - Today I look at shares in Feedback (FDBK), MySale (MYSL) and Valirx (VAL) setting a share price target for each.
In the latest edition of Financial Orbit Speaks, Chris Bailey looks at continuing challenges in Europe despite the likelihood of a third Greek bailout, interpretations around the Chinese yuan movement, issues in the US and why individual corporate equity analysis remains the key.
It has been quite a rocky ride for shareholders of Sportech over the past couple of years, with the sharp decline in H2 2015 a good example of how problematic the price action here has been.
Jersey Finance is terribly keen to get Chinese companies to register in Jersey and list their shares on the London Stock Exchange, notable on the AIM casino. What a marvellous set-up they offer: it is the jurisdiction of choice for corporate entities seeking to list, one fifth of Chinese companies listed in London are registered in Jersey, there is political and economic stability, a sound regulatory reputation and, of course, Jersey Finance has a representative office in Hong Kong (since 2009) just to ease things along. What’s not to like?
Although one suspects that the “trend is your friend” has not always been the best stock market saying for traders and investors on all occasions, the situation for safe Safeland (SAF) does remind us that at least being able to identify the best examples of bullishness can lead to significant rewards. I offer some price targets below.
Vast Resources (VAST), the AIM-quoted mining hopeful with interests in Central Africa and Eastern Europe, has begun blasting at its 1.8 million-tonne Manaila polymetallic mine in Romania. The company, formerly African Consolidated Resources, will seek to take production there towards 10,000 tonnes of ore per month, having passed what chief executive Roy Pitchford hails as ‘a landmark day in the life of Vast’. Having trebled since early this year to a share price of 1.53p, Vast’s shares put a value of £18.3 million on the company, but how much upside is there from here?
Featuring the shares of Cap-XX (CPX), JKX Oil & Gas (JKX), Management Resource Solutions (MRS), Stellar Resources (STG), Tek Capital (TEK), with some price targets.
Hello Share Campers. I’ve got an awful admission to make. I am an addict.
Thanks for all the entries to the China fraud caption contest of yesterday. That was such fun we have a new contest (deadline for entries midnight Saturday) in honour of the useless tosser Xavier Rolet, the garlic munching imbecile in charge of the London Stock Exchange.
Outwardly, the Australian Securities & Investments Commission (ASIC) appears far more rigorous in dealing with wrongdoing on the ASX than our dear old AIM Regulation Team is on AIM. ASIC has a form you can fill in. British shareholders in Black Mountain Resources (BMZ) might wish to drop ASIC a line about the latest moonshine Pirate Pete is flogging. Details below.
Crowe Clark Whitehill is the UK auditor of a number on AIM casino china frauds and its associate in Fujian, Crowe Horwarth Associates really gets fingers dirty. We know that the blatant long term fraud at Sorbic (booted off the casino), Naibu (booted off the casino) and Camkids (soon to be booted off the casino) as well as at Jiasen and JQW totally escaped its attention. In light of that we bring you the latest Financial Reporting Council review of Crowe.
Of all the escapades we’ve covered over the years from Pete “The Pirate” Landau, his latest caper with Australian-listed Black Mountain Resources (BMZ) is off the scale on the guff-ometer. Pirate Pete and his motley Black Mountain crew claim to have secured the right to a 20% stake in an undersea salvage operation to recover a supposed >$1billion worth of gold from two wrecks, torpedoed during the First World War. Regular readers will not be stunned to learn that Landau now plans to raise AU$6.87million in pursuit of this fool’s errand.
Having crashed well below 500p on a 27th July interim results announcement, shares in Dialight plc (DIA) have maintained recovered levels of around 550p following an announcement of “Cost Reduction Actions”. What’s the current view here?
John Meyer of SP Angel this morning comments on Serbai Gold (SRB), Stellar Diamonds (STEL), Vast Resources (VAST) and ZincOx Resources (ZOX) as well as offering a detailed macro view on the news that is shaping global mining and the AIM mining pond.
Rangers International Football (RFC) recently announced the appointment of Peterhouse Corporate Finance as its ISDX advisor, and sources close to the deal say that ISDX is desperate for RIFC to join its junior market in London. A few uncertainties remain.
It is not as if Optibiotix (OPTI) management do not put their money where their mouth is. Just a few days ago chairman Neil Davidson splashed out £150,000 buying shares at 71p. Now we have news of an option package for three senior staffers including Davidson. No options….one way bet… nooooooooooooo you scream. No. Read the RNS.
For those of you who are contrarians you will have heard the quip by Baron Rothschild that the time to buy is when there is "blood in the streets" and by extension, the time to sell is at the point of maximum euphoria - "this time it is different" are the kind of words that should make you bridle.
Thank God for small mercies. Now we can start a rota on who has to listen to Brokerman Dan blathering on about blockchain and what a frigging genius Clem Chambers is. For now there is a third rogue blogger joining us as we walk the 32 miles from Horse Hill to Woodlarks on July 28. He is a man who knows Horse Hill well…
I’ve been following darling of the bulletin boards, Versarien (VRS) for some time finding the ever-increasing share price more and more incredulous. I thought I would use today’s results to take a closer look and come up with a considered valuation. In short, this appears to be the in the top 5 most overvalued shares on AIM – get out while the going’s good!
The extract from the Land Registry below is in the public domain and looks like a huge misunderstanding to me. Worthington (WRN) may be in administration but it seems the FCA have a few questions for its former boss Doug Ware. I am sure there is a perfectly innocent explanation for all of this.
Maybe Julie "Lingerie on expenses" Meyer MBE has other problems to consider? Take it from me that she does. There is more to follow, the wheels are a turning. But perhaps she or her uber expensive bully boy lawyer Julian Pike might answer a simple question for me. It relates to ASX listed Norwood.
Oh dear, I sense that in my adopted home of Greece there are a few folks heading for the slammer in connection with the Folli Follie Fraud which we helped Gabriel Grego to expose on this website. It seems like just the other day that burly security guards were chasing me away from its HQ North of Athens, as you can see HERE.
I recorded this on my last night in Greece. As you listen I shall be starting the trek back to Bristol. I appeal to those yet to donate to the Woodlarks charity walk by myself, Lucian Miers and Brokerman Dan to donate HERE - we are at 69% of our £20,000 target and every cent pledged will make a difference. Thanks to a reader for spotting a court case involving Safestyle (SFE) which is utterly shocking - I reckon this makes the stock uninvestable. I then take issue with the analysis of a City pal of Chris "three brains" Bailey on the matter of fraud.
I’ve touched on Immunocore a few times in passing as it one of the largest holdings in Woodford Patient Capital Trust (WPCT) as well as being the largest investment made by Dublin-listed Malin Corporation, of which Woodford is the largest shareholder, obvs! Well, it looks like it’s not a particularly happy ship and I wonder whether a (further) devaluation is required?
Previously writing on SRT Marine Systems (SRT) in April, I concluded with previous delays and a current market cap of more than £30 million, I await to see evidence it is actually on-track as well as the cash flow and the balance sheet. Today a “SE Asia Contract Change” announcement…
I assume that dividend munchers are feeling a bit glum today as the FTSE 100's most boring company (as I previously dubbed it HERE), Scottish & Southern Electricity (SSE) is seeing its shares fall by 3% odd percent. So what is going on?
HaloSource (HALO) “is pleased to announce that it has received initial orders for its new astrea ONE lead filtering bottle from its first retail customer in the US”. Hmmm, promising or ramptastic?...
Previously writing on Hotel Chocolat (HOTC) it was interims emphasise “another period of strong progress”… but progress enough for the valuation?. Now a trading update for the company’s year ended 1st July 2018…
Shares in Be Heard (BHRD) are currently the leading fallers today on the back of a trading update. The digital marketing services group though commences that with revenue up to more than £14 million, including 15% like-for-like growth. So what’s the problem?...
I commented on the lunatic management at Premier Foods (PFD) a couple of weeks ago HERE, who, after turning down a perfectly good bid, are circling the wagons against activist investors who want to help to start to create value by booting out the CEO. I could not agree more with their assertion that the CEO's tenure is 'five year of failure'...
Hello Share Shapers. Royal Mail (RMG) is not a share I would buy more of. I will however hang onto those I do have for a while longer. Though I really ought to be looking for a good exit point I think.
Previously writing on Goals Soccer Centres (GOAL), with the shares down to circa 75p I cautioned with the trading update, currently awaiting a new CEO and the Chairman admitting “our recovery plan remains ‘work in progress’”, I certainly continue to avoid. Today a further trading update – and the shares currently down below 70p…
