Plastics Capital (PLA) was among the three companies presenting at the last ShareProphets seminar. The video of Executive Chairman Faisal Rahmatallah can be found below.
Hello Share Bunnies. If you make a mistake in Shareland and buy when you should have sold, it was not your fault. You must realise this – and be happy
Infamous bear raider Evil Knievil was the guest speaker at the ShareProphets seminar on 24 November and did not hold back with his views on the market, a stock that he views as a slam dunk short and Quindell whose boss Rob Terry was described as a fraud. The video of Evil can be viewed below.
The Olive harvest at the Greek hovel is finally underway and so it is a late BearCast. On the agenda: Beacon Hill, Radiant Growth (a Daniel Stewart special), Xplorer (a disgrace), Petroceltic, Rose Petroleum, Quindell (a fraud) and New World Oil & Gas (a total shocker).
San Leon Energy (SLE) was among the three companies presenting at the last ShareProphets seminar. The video of CEO Oisin Fanning – who faced one or two tough questions - can be found below.
IGas (IGAS) has this morning admitted that it got its numbers wrong last week. Yesterday’s piece on today’s RNS HERE on Shareprophets was, er, prophetic.
From the FCA's spreadsheet of short positions required to be disclosed to it, the following details the 20 highest net short positions and the changes (red if short increased, green if reduced) since a previous analysis HERE.
I kid you not, someone has just started a thread on ADVFN Quindell the next ten bagger. The Quindell(QPP) morons are in full cry today convinced that a 1p rise in the share price discredits “the blogger” completely and shows that they are on their way to untold wealth. WRONG. Rob Terry is sitting on £7 million because he’s dumped stock, the morons are heading for poverty. So what do you call a group of Quindell shareholders, we asked for your suggestions for the collective noun on Saturday.
US equities continue to rise Heavenwards and we wonder how long that can go on, given the high valuations they have already reached? The S &P 500 Index reportedly values its constituents on an average multiple of 16 times estimated, prospective average earnings. That we learn is about 13% higher than the average ratio on the Index over the last decade.
Hello Share Rockers. It's only 24 days to go now, gang. And we are now seeing, at last, the fabled Santa Rally. Will it keep on going? You bet it will. The Footsie will probably not slow down until the New Year, except for the odd mini correction for the sake of good taste.
Tomorrow I will be calling rock stars from across the bear community as we need to think of those less fortunate than ourselves. It is time to record our charity single… Feed the Morons. The message has gone out to Gotham City, Evil Knievil, Paul Scott, Lucian Miers, Paddington Bear, Matt Earl, John Hempton of Bronte, Sam Antar, Muddy Waters, Citron Research, Nigel Somerville, A Huntsman, Dan McCrum, Paul Murphy, Pizza hardman Darren Atwater, Cockney Rebel and Kevin Ashton. We gather tomorrow in Clerkenwell to raise money for those facing a bleak Christmas, Quindell staff and shareholders as we record Feed the Morons, Do they know it’s Christmas?.
It strikes me that we are showing favouritism to Quindell owning morons. This is a bit unfair. We should not discriminate against those morons who are backing Fitbug at any price, who think Coms is heading back to 10p or who also own Monitise, blinkx, Globo and Cupid as the remainder of their balanced portfolio. And so to win a bottle of wine this week you can post the most insane comment from any thread on any Bulletin Board below. In the event of a tie-break, a Quenron entry wins but the LSE Fitbug asylum does look a good place to search for winners.
In the light of yesterday’s piece on boardroom piggery, wrong figures in RNSs, incorrect data given to Dart’s shareholders etc – you can read it HERE I have now checked through all IGas’ share issue announcements and Companies House Filings, with particular regard to the holdings and ‘interests’ of CEO Andrew Austin.
Our writers are divided. Ben Turney sees the recent OPEC meeting as disastrous for AIM listed oil shares (HERE). On the other hand Chris Oil (HERE) and Paul Curtis (HERE) argue that the bad news is more than discounted and are buyers of the sector. I started my career as an oil analyst and so what does Tom Winnifrith think?
As you know my economics are crystal pure Austrian and so this week’s interview by my colleagues at Palisade Capital was a real delight. John Wiliams is the founder and publisher of Shadowstats.com, which is an independent investigator and publisher of real government statistics in relation to the economy. He explains how the Government of the US is fiddling the numbers, why this will lead to hyperinflation in 2015 and – naturally – why this is very good for Gold.
No wonder investors are so bullish, we are now officially into the third longst bull market in history. But will it last? In this week's edition of Financial Orbit I flag up a number of worrying indicators. And just for Tom W one of the flashing warning signs is coming for the country where he now seems to live most of the time, Greece.
At RMPC we normally pay staff in the last week of the month but in December we will pay my heroic colleagues on the 15th or thereabouts. Nearly all companies pay staff early in the festive month so that they can pay for the vile consumerist event that Christmas has become. I am sure Quindell staff were paid early in 2013 as the company had just completed a £200 million placing. But what about 2014?
I read with interest my friend Ben Turney’s post OPEC bear view on the oil price and stocks HERE. I disagree with him and my initial economic reasoning is that lower oil prices will see heavily indented US fracking firms wiped out so restoring a supply demand balance.
Last week IGas (IGAS) accompanied a dire set of results with another statement regarding the shabby dealings of CEO Andrew Austin with the dodgy American firm Equities First Holdings LLC. As usual it was deceitful and inaccurate.
Taking readers suggestions for improvements, we've made it much easier to subscribe to your favourite one-stop source for breaking news and expert analysis on AIM and LSE listed shares. £5.99 pcm gets you access, that works out at sub 2p (inc VAT) per article. Think how much our big red flag calls on the AIM frauds have saved you and hot tips like IQE have made you. Its a nil brainer....it's madness not to sign up.
I am a shareholder in Amryt (AMYT) which has had a placing today. I am furious and feel shafted. The shares are almost certainly cheap but I feel livid so am off, with Joshua, for coffees with the fit young mums. I also comment on i3 Energy (TOAST), 88 Energy (88E), Frontera (FRR) and ADVFN (AFN).
How the Bulletin Board Morons laughed at me as I warned in the strongest possible terms that 88 Energy (88E) shares were a slam dunk sell and that drilling of the Icewine well was not going well. Please form an orderly queue morons I guess you did know better than a trained oil analyst after all. The shares have slumped by 0.75p to 1.25p but a market cap of £56.9 million is still way too high. There is worse to come.
I start off with a cheque received for 29p. Then as we see the Purplebricks (PURP) share price start to melt I look at hard maths and explain why the shares will collapse from here. I look at the Rose Petroleum (ROSE) placing, misleading comments from worthless crap Strat Aero (AERO), dismal interims from shamed lifestyle company Magnolia Petroleum (MAGP) and then at Intelligent Energy (IEH) which looks like a zero in waiting.
The debt timebomb has not gone away. In fact it is bigger than ever and that has massie implications for all of us, the central theme of this month's newsletter from the world's biggest investor in resource stocks, Sprott Asset Management. It writes:
This week's Bulletin Board Moron contest is sponsored by Nyota Minerals, a company that has more lives than all of our reader's cats.
Falanx (FLX) has announced a partnership with Stone Group, a major supplier of IT services to the Education sector and Government. Stone provides the hardware to all these money tree-funded bodies and will, in future, promote Falanx Cyber Defence as its sole cyber security partner.
Last night at 5.25pm Nyota Minerals (NYO) announced that its shares were being booted off the AIM casino. The roll call of shame on this one is appalling. We have AIM Regulation, broker Peterhouse and the directors of the company seemingly all at fault here, not to mention former Nomad Beaumont Cornish and two further Nomads, ZAI Corporate Finance and Allenby being dragged in. It is a true horror show. But rather than look in the mirror, the directors pointed the finger at ShareProphets – blame the media, the investigative journalists, blame evil Tom Winnifrith and myself, Nigel Somerville. This is shocking.
Uber has lost its London license thanks to Transport For London (TFL), a move applauded by useless Mayor Sadiq Khan, The Guardian, the BBC and black cab drivers. But it is very bad news indeed for London and I explain why. It is symptomatic of a new era of economic madness as is Theresa May claiming giving £20 billion (it will be more) to the EU is a good deal and our useless PM also trying to satisfy the greed of lazy and overpaid public sector workers. Perhaps the biggest sign of this madness and wish for economic hari-kiri is Labour's plan to renationalise the utilities. It is utter madness but no one dares say so. We are heading faster and faster towards the precipice my friends.
Hello, Share Poppers. It’s always a pleasure to listen to comment from readers of this terrific website. So a few months back, I bought some shares in Aeorema Communications (AEO), as one of my readers said they couldn’t understand why the stock of such an award-winning company was not doing much better.
Hello Share Samplers. When a share approaches company results day, whether for six months or the full year, we can expect the share price to rise. Once that special day arrives, the value often falls - even when profits are in line with expectations or even better. Naturally, the most trading often goes on in the run-up to the announcement concerned and in the week afterwards. But there’s an advantage in buying your shares when nothing imminent is on the company’s diary and when no other news is expected.
Symphony Environmental Technologies (SYM) was a 6.75p offer price share tip – and the shares rose to 11.5p on the back of a first half of 2017 results announcement, though have currently slipped back to 10.5p…
Well it did arrive in a brown envelope! The eagle eyed among you will see that I appear not to have cashed the last cheque from this source, for 51p. I think I lost it. But I'm now entitled to 80p as a result of being a loyal shareholder in the London Stock Exchange (LSE). Of course my real "dividend" is being able to attend the AGM to berate the hapless head of AIM Regulation, Mr Marcus Stuttard. Truthfully, notwithstanding today's cheque I can say that I am not in this one for the money.
An unusual time (1:01pm) “Statement re contract” announcement from marketing services group St. Ives (SIV). Uh oh...
This is a share tip that has not worked out. We are well down on the 37p offer price of January - our timing was imperfect. To be fair, we advised averaging down a week or so ago at a 24p offer. Shares in the geoscience and geospatial group Getech (GTC) are now 26p offer after a very good trading update and at this level they are a strong buy.
