Jeremy Martin, chief executive officer of unloved nickel hopeful Horizonte Minerals (HZM,) says latest drill results from bulk sampling at the AIM and Toronto-quoted company’s Araguia nickel project in Brazil ‘confirm high nickel grades that are scheduled for the early stages of Araguia’s mine life.’ He is also celebrating what London-based Horizonte describes as ‘positive support’ for the project, south of the Carajas mining district in north central Peru’s Para State, shown at a public meeting with the local community and government representatives, a development Martin dubs ‘a major milestone towards receiving our preliminary licence’ to develop Araguia.
I thought this was a polished effort from Collagen (COS) CEO Stewart White at the ShareProphets seminar on 2nd February at The Free Speech & Liberty Pizza House in Clerkenwell. Sorry to Mr White for asking a hard numbers question on camera!
Everyone knows it by now but the growth in domestic US oil production has been truly astonishing. Spurred on by high oil prices and easy credit, oil companies in Texas and North Dakota have been drilling like crazy and the result has been an inexorable rise in US domestic production.
My esteemed colleague comrade Malcolm Stacey is nothing if not consistent. The great Money Tree worshipper is perennially bullish and once again that is his message today (HERE). But is the Footsie "flying?" I compare it to a 1916 Wisden and it is clearly not. And I point out why even if it breaches 7,000 there is every reason to be bearish rather than bullish.
The New Year’s rapid increase in the BP (BP.) share price has been testimony to some old market truths; buy for book value and buy when the last man has heard the bad news.
Following my (unanswered) open letter to Jefferies International (Nomad to IGas) in the wake of having inspected the share register and finding a 10.25 million shareholding registered on 25 Nov 2014 (HERE ), I have now asked AIM Regulation to look into the matter.
Hello Share Sweepers. As previously predicted by this old codger, the bull market is well and truly on track again. So far none of my detractors has acknowledged defeat, but when the old Footsie target of just short of 7,000 is breached, I expect some concessions on that front.
Both Maribel and I are feeling a little fragile after a night of boozing at The Free Speech & Liberty Pizza House. And so life is a bit of a struggle today for both of us. Anyhow this podcast covers insider dealing, Afren, TXO, Camkids, Northbridge Industrial, profits warnings, Asian Citrus and Creston
At the ShareProphets seminar on Monday 2nd February in Clerkenwell at The Free Speech & Liberty Pizza House, David Lenigas & the new CEO of UK Oil & Gas (UKOG) Mr Steve Sanderson explianed why they thought Horse Hill was not a busted flush but very exciting. The video is below.
1Spatial (SPA) a well-run firm on the AIM casino has today announced the immediate departure of its chairman, crony capitalist Steve Berry. This follows a series of revelations such as THIS about his activities elsewhere at POS and Touchstone Gold (TGL). While The Sheriff of AIM celebrates another scalp, our resident in house poet, EJ has dashed off an offering: In Memoriam Steve Berry.
As foreshadowed here in November, Scotia Exploration & Mining is finalising details for a £2 million pre-float fund-raising attempt at 25p, ahead of a projected much larger AIM flotation at 125p or more to probe and tap gold deposits potentially stretching from the Southern Uplands of Scotland to the border area of Ireland. The Glasgow-based company, which aspires to rival and, if possible, overshadow present AIM Scottish gold play Scotgold (SGZ), is concentrating on prospects along the Orlock Bridge geological fault, which links the Leadhill gold deposits in southern Scotland with Co. Armagh, where another AIM counter Conroy Gold and Natural Resources (CGNR) has been spending years investigating and establishing gold projects.
Hello Share Chirpers. Let's have a look at the ideal company to invest in – one that ticks all the boxes.
Tesco, Waitrose, John Lewis and Now Etihad Airlines have all asked Google not to carry their ads on ShareProphets as a result of a campaign by Bulletin Board Jihadists who do not like what I have to say.
The jihadists of the QPPSAG and other frauds and morons have waged war against me, this website and especially our cracking Clerkenwell restaurant for 2 years as we expose crime and dishonesty in the City. Today we accelerate the fight back against the free speech deniers as the restaurant gets a makeover.
Last week, websites supportive to Quindell (QPP) claimed that there would be a bid for QLS from Slater & Gordon by the weekend because its exclusivity deal with Quenron ran out on Friday. Quindell ignored that comment. Today, with its shares in freefall, it has in a raher panicked way “responded to press comment” and said exclusive talks are still on. So what does that tell us?
I am a bondholder in Afren (AFR), having bought in size in recent days as the company has revealed its cash flow problems. I haven't bought very well, I'm afraid, paying far too much early last week at 41c, although I did add significantly at 34c, without paying accrued interest into the bargain. That means that, in the unlikely event that the coupon due on 31st January 2015 is paid within the 30 day "grace period", I'll have bought at the equivalent of about 28c.
Shares in AIM casino listed Berkeley Minerals (BMR) remain suspended as forensic analysts investigate the scope of the accounting black hole within the company but, following an RNS today, we know that the quantum is not £4.3 million as previously announced by £11 million. Surely jail time beckons and I have a nomination to make.
Heck it is free speech day for me every day. In today's podcast I look at Sefton, Quindell, Afren, Igas, ISG, Insectco, Ascent Resources, Mosman Oil & Gas, Mopowered & Outsourcery
For anyone who likes a flutter on the outcome of oil drills, all eyes will be on the Falkland Islands again this year. Given what has happened during previous drilling off of the Falklands, and the fact that the Erik Raude rig is now on the way for a prolonged campaign, I expect there to be a lot of hype in companies such as Rockhopper (RKH) and Falklands Oil and Gas (FOGL).
Well it is a bad day on two counts. Fisrt it is the disaster that has hit our village in Greece and its olive harvest, as I explain in a photo article HERE. Then it is events at Premaitha (NIPT), a share we own. I explain why I am not selling. I look at Stanley Gibbons (SGI) and then at FastForward (FFWD) where things really don't stack up and where there are far more questions than answers.
As I noted earlier the fantasist Chris Oil has returned to twitter as a result of "exceptional demand". And as you can see he wants to take AIM back for the "good of honest investors". Great Chris. we wish you well and it is good to have someone as honest as you fighting the good fight. I see that I am not alone in holding that view. Last Thursday, according to twitter counter he had just 2,787 follower. Wind forward a few days...
The only suprise is that the market abuser Chris Oil has not rebranded as Chris BlockChain. But after an absence of well over a year from the public arena, the man who, modestly, compared himself to Warren Buffett is back! Hooray, his investment advice has always been a golden (counter) indicator.
A TR-1 released by AIM-listed Purplebricks (PURP) reveals that Woodford Investment Management - the stamping ground of former idol Neil Woodford - has been piling in to buy more shares in the light of recent weakness in the share price. Is it good news for Purplebricks? I fear not.
This is not the news we Premaitha (NIPT) shareholders wanted and it is clearly bad news. The question is how bad? The UK High Court has upheld three patent claims made by Illumina against Premaitha.
There were those, such as our own Drunken Sailor, who argued that UK Oil & Gas (UKOG) could manage to absorb the rolling short of a £10 million death spiral announced last week quite easily and it would not hit the share price. The evidence with just 5% of the spiral drawn suggests otherwise and this makes the stock a slam dunk short.
Yesterday I exposed how fantastist Chris Oil was buying bogus bot twitter followers on an industrial scale to make it look as if folks really cared about what he tweeted. He or someone close to him has responded in predictable fashion.
The recent history of Stanley Gibbons Group (SGI) together with a 12:15pm “Update” announcement don’t suggest good news… and the news is its Guernsey investment division has appointed administrators…
I note that yesterday AIM-listed Bowleven (BLVN) released a TR-1 RNS from Crown Ocean – the rebel shareholder which threw out the old board earlier this year. It has increased its holding (again).
Today's pre-placing ramp is for serial offender in this regard, Strat Aero (AERO). The totally insolvent AIM dog boasts that it has signed a "significant" Commercial Agreement with Alnahdi Aviation Technology , experts in aviation technology in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia to collaborate on establishing a UAV Training Centre in the KSA." Fab. So how much will this bring in? Er...
Shares in main market-listed Interserve (IRV) have been falling today, last seen down a thumping 8.2% - quite a drop for a £106 million company when there has been no news. One wonders why.
In the gold old days the fraud MySquar (MYSQ) used to report breathlessly on average daily sales volumes - that is to say cash coming in. But - as we subsequently discovered - that was largely related party non core income and it fell off a cliff on July 1. Not that MySquar bothered to let us know about that until it had got a bailout placing away. On any other market than the AIM Casino that would be securities fraud. Heck, even on the Zimbabwe Stock Exchange you'd get your collar felt for that. But on AIM fraud is okay as long as you pay your fees. Anyhow these days MySquar serves up different bollocks.
Hello Share Trundlers. Today’s commendation is one of those companies that you can take pride in supporting because it’s such a jolly humanity-serving idea. And in this case, the prognosis, in my humble opinion, looks rather good.
The Taxpayers Alliance has produced a fascinating 51 page report explaining why so many of us are "just about managing" to quote our useless Prime Minister. In short it's hard evidence that Ronald Reagan was right when he said that the scariest words in the English language are "I'm from the Government and I'm here to help." We feel poor not because of wicked Tory austerity (fauxsterity), but because of how a bloated state has distorted the economy.
Previously writing on recruitment group Empresaria (EMR) in the summer, I concluded it one of the more attractive plays in the sector but prevailing uncertainties meant wariness of the industry. A trading update today is headlined “reduced performance in Germany and the Middle East”. Uh oh…
Writing last week on Van Elle Holdings (VANL), I noted a boardroom shake-up General Meeting requisition from its founder seeking to return. Today brings a response from the company…
Self-described UK “specialist in data science led digital marketing”, Jaywing (JWNG) has announced results for its half-year ended 30th September 2017 including “since the election was called in the Spring we have seen consumer-led businesses in the UK grapple with difficult trading conditions… their first action has been to cut costs, including marketing costs”. That doesn’t bode well here…
