NEX-lobster pot listed Afriag (AFRI) slipped out a 4.45pm placing announcement last night – a no-one-is-watching o’clock special, raising enough to keep the lights on but not much more. But there seems to have been a spot of confusion over which company was issuing the RNS. Was it Afriag or fellow David Lenigas company Doriemus (DOR) – also of the NEX province?
Amryt Pharma (AMYT) has announced results for the six months ended 30 June 2017. There were no great shocks the buy case is compelling and low risk - my target, for shares I admit to owning, is very conservative. Others are twice as ambitious or more!
This may be the last bearcast you listen to. I hope not. To ensure you can listen to tommorrow's podcast and read two belting exclusives for just £5.99 sign up HERE. Today cover in detail sheer pointlessness of Starvest (SVE) & Torotrak (TRK). Both need to do placings both should, like flea bitten ageing hounds in pain, go on a one way trip to the vet. Once again I apologise to my old friend the offshore based asset stripper Jim Mellon for intruding on private grief as I look at another dog he has backed, Billing Services (BILL)
Epwin Group (EPWN) has announced results for the first half of 2017 emphasising as a first highlight “sound performance in challenging market conditions”. The shares have responded, er, currently approaching 4% lower to circa 70p…

It is a false economy not to join as Malcolm points out very clearly. So watch comrade Stacey in action and then sign up NOW HERE
In the latest podcast from Palisade Capital, gold guru David Skarica discusses the volatility in the market and the reasons for a coming decline. A fight over the budget, tax cuts, or the debt ceiling could create further problems. The technical foundations of the market have been crumbling in recent months. Gold is doing well although a bigger rally has not happened since the general market has held up.
Deborah White should have been fired as boss of AIM uber-dog Milestone (MSG) so many times. The company has been a serial non deliverer, shareholders have lost nearly everything and Debs has made out like a squealer being amply rewarded for her abject failure. Then last Autumn was the crime that should have seen her go to jail
We have had a few emails about the share sale announced by former Optibiotix (OPTI) director David Evans. Panic not. The shares are back at 69.5p mid on the news: treat that as a buying opportunity.
Hello, Share Tanglers. The idea of living on a Barratt housing estate used to fill me with dread, but a lot of folk seem to like its houses nowadays, so I humbly suggest you look at the shares.
A half year 2017 results announcement from Goals Soccer Centres (GOAL) is headlined “significant strategic progress in the period, early signs of turnaround”. The shares have responded… er, currently at 93.5p, more than 10% lower!...
Boom boom! I suspect that once again the Mrs will regard that that title as rather crude as she did with this offering the other day. I discuss that topic which is close to the heart my old friend Jim Mellon. Then I look at MySquar (MYSQ), a disaster waiting to happen and its link to disgraced Bell Pottinger. Then it is onto Avanti (AVN) before I issue another warning about 88 Energy (88E) not that the morons trying to ramp it will listen. Finally I look at strange share price action and hard maths for Zibao Metals (ZBO)
An update from Van Elle Holdings (VANL) ahead of its AGM today includes “trading in the first quarter of the financial year has been encouraging” and that the board “remains confident in its expectations for the current financial year as well as the long-term potential of the group”. Sounds encouraging…
AIM-listed restaurant group Tasty plc (TAST) served up its interims to 2 July this morning. Starters included good news that revenue was up 12% and that four new sites were opened. But the main course left a bad flavour in the mouth, reflected in the (last seen) drop of 12% in the share price.

Interims from Strat Aero (AERO) today are dire. They show a company that was bust on June 30, one with zero earnings visibility and an ongoing cash burn. There is a lack profits warning and a tacit admission that a bailout placing is inevitable. I should cocoa. But even if there is a heavily discounted bailout this company is probably toast. The shares are worth 0p. SELL. This is, like most stocks promoted by the Sith Lord, Zak Mir, toast.
I have got to credit the management of industrial/construction rental machinery Ashtead (AHT) for their sensitive words about the hurricanes that have battered some of the American southern states in September. Clearly this is not a time for anything other than expressing sympathy for those impacted but - with a commercial hat on - over the balance of this year and throughout 2018 I would imagine a business renting industrial and construction machinery is going to have a bunch of opportunities. That's for the future though and today's first quarter results continue the excellent progress I noted when i last wrote about the stock three months ago here
Columbus (CERP) has renegotiated the terms of its $8.9 million Convertible Security Funding Agreement with Lind Partners, LLC , announced by the old regime on 7 December 2016. This is big news and it is good news.
Gulf Keystone Petroleum (GKP) was one of the most hyped up oil companies that I have ever seen during my time in the markets, and although that all ended in tears, I think it could be worth another look now as it has changed a lot since those days.
Hello Share Shooters. As Uncle Tom has been urging us to buy into gold, I thought I ought to increase my holdings. He rightly argues that gold is undervalued, given the top currencies, like sterling, the euro and the dollar, are all under some kind of pressure.
Shares in InterQuest (ITQ) have indeed been suspended after it terminated its nominated adviser and broker relationship with Panmure Gordon. However, following an “Update on nominated adviser and suspension” announcement, is there more hope for shareholders than initially feared?...
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 have been having some good natured debate with Tom on the pros and cons of Big Sofa Technology (BST) recently and, as ever, he has allowed me to present my bearish version of events in advance of next week’s interims in contrast to his bullish thoughts the most recent of which is HERE.
It all started with a game of croquet. I start with my long term battle with scumbag ex Tory MP, the loathsome Sir Tony Baldry. He is now chairman of Westminster Group (WSG). I analyse its woes after Friday's interims. I look at the forthcoming IPO of the City Pubs Company and hoist some red flags. Then to 88 Energy (88E) and to those who have lost badly by ignoring my previous warnings I warn again. Big Time!
The following censure of Jason Drummond of Teathers (TEA) infamy is damning. It relates to his time at Media Corp (MDC) an AIM disaster story ending in bankruptcy. I think it is fair to say that Jason will not be sitting on any more AIM boards after this.
With its shares having reached 25.75p last week and closed at above 25p on Wednesday, Amryt Pharma (AMYT) announced on Thursday that it was “delighted with the support we have received” for an “oversubscribed placing”, raising a gross €15 million (£13.3 million)… at 20p per share! As a long standing shareholder I say "F**k you." I feel so utterly 100% shafted as will those who paid 26p+ last week after confident results which made it clear that Amryt was fully funded. So I asked Steve Moore to pen an analysis. As I explained in Thursday's bearcast HERE I am too angry to be objective. The fact is that at a 22.5p offer the shares are a BUY.
Hello, Share Collectors. Many of us, I know, are still awash in oil stocks, both the producers and riskier explorers. I’ve been advising that we cut down, as the competition from wind, sun, waves and biomass, threatens to grow. But I think I may have been too hard on ebony nectar and here are a few reasons why.
I’m continuing my look at forthcoming interims with the horror show that is the Woodford-backed RM2 International (RM2), first pointed out as an excellent bear tip by Graham Neary (HERE). One has to ask what the hell was Woodford thinking here?
From the FCA's spreadsheet of short positions required to be disclosed to it, the following shows the shorted AIM shares with positions from 2016 and thus far in 2017 (by net short position %) - and if this position has increased (red), reduced (green) or remained unchanged (black) since last week...
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.
Last week it was the Sunday Times' chat through on personal debt which induced my breakfast coffee to be consumed in an unorthodox fashion. Today it is pension deficits - that quiet corporate horror show.
I am prompted by a great Zero Hedge article HERE to look at the mounting evidence that thanks to what is now the greatest debt binge in history, surpassing that of 2008, we are at peak insanity. Whether it is boob jobs on tick, the latest funding round at Deliveroo at a ludicrous valuation, the downgrade of UK Government debt or the madness of some peer to peer lending there are timebombs aplenty waiting to explode.
A useful lesson has been handed out recently to bears by the price action in two stocks: Telit Communications (TCM), an Israeli fraud quoted in London, and Eros International, an Indian fraud quoted in New York.
Want to get the best sell ideas on AIM? Just ask Zak Mir for his hot buy ideas and the Sith Lord kiss of death will not take long to play out. The world's worst chartist will be serving up more duff calls next Wednesday evening at NEX Exchange in Broadgate. There is more.
Having in the last couple of weeks been slipping back from above 1.3p towards 1p, shares in August tip at a 1.25p offer price Powerhouse Energy (PHE) are now recovering on the back of a “MOU for waste-to-hydrogen facilities” announcement. But they have a lot further to go.
Joining in with Cynical Bear’s run of interims previews, I thought I’d take a look at our old favourite, AIM-listed Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO). The history here has been nothing short of a disaster in the last 12 months or so, and appears to be now culminating in a potential cash-crisis.
Having been sparked from well below 200p by a May update including that “in the first 19 weeks of 2017, overall revenues were ahead of the corresponding period last year. The immediate outlook is more positive than it has been for some time”, shares in video security systems group IndigoVision (IND) have now fallen back to around the 200p level on results for the first half of 2017. Hmmm…
Reach4Entertainment (R4E) has announced results from a stated “modest” first half of 2017, though emphasises “second half of current financial year expected to be satisfactory, but 2018 forecasts already looking like a return to form from the key companies with support from the new initiatives of Dewynters Germany and Jampot”…
