Four times in the past three or four months we have advised our readers to bank big gains on shares we tipped - the one before the one before last was a 77% profit (offer to bid ) in just 12 days. But we are not perfect. Only folks living in council houses but boasting of their million pound investments on Bulletin Boards get it right all the time.
Former ShareSoc chairman Roger Lawson, who has threatened to sue Tom Winnifrith, is the sponsor of this week's Bulletin Board Moron contest. Yes he sponsored last week's contest as well but the disgraced share ramper is such a prize dick and still has a few of the Globo sharesw he promoted so thusiastically to hand out as a prize so Roger is back again.
The July edition of the UK Investor Show Magazine is live featuring eight share tips, a question of life after the Tories, a special book offer, CEO interviews with Optibiotix (OPTI) and Wishbone (WSBN) and much more.
Getting through the Greek planning system is like wading through treacle as AIM listed Minoan (MIN) has found to its cost over two decades on its Cave Sidero site in Crete. But Greek blogs are today reporting progress on its Fastrack (ho, ho, ho) application progress.
Three months ago video technology company Forbidden Technologies raised just under £9 million at 20p thanks to an oversubscribed placing – that was a game changer. The share price does not reflect that game change. The shares are buy with an initial 45p target. Here’s why.
In the wake of the shock departure of CEO Harry Adams, commissioned researcher Edison has argued that the shares, at 7.5p, are still cheap and are worth either 11p or 22p.
Commissioned researcher Edison has produced a report on a client who pays it for research which asks a quote stunning question: might the company be a going concern under some circumstances? The company in question is perennial dog Hambledon Mining (HMB).
Shares in Sefton Resources (SER) remain suspended as we await its (dire) interims. But if there was a change in its trading it should still, under AIM rules, let us all know via an RNS. But it seems that Sefton is not playing by the rules. Plus ca change.
Hello Share People, The most interesting shares in my bag at the mo are probably Lloyds Group (LLOY). They are rising quite nicely. And it wasn't too long ago that they were worth half as much as they are today.
Northgate (NTG) shares have been a good buy for value. Now they mainly have only price momentum to justify further buying after their eighty per cent rise in price over twelve months. But that looks to me, as though it has gone as high as it should reasonably get at this stage, allowing for a significant healthy correction.
AIM Cesspit posterboy Cyan (CYAN) is – after 8 years of non-delivery – set to run out of cash by Christmas. Hence today it issued an utterly over-hyped press release (go ahead sue me for libel, see where it got Sefton) in an attempt to ramp the shares ahead of it, yet again, asking investors to pony up for a rescue share issue.
On the surface this it looks a familiar story of woe. Frontier (FRI) joined first ISDX then AIM as an exploration company with Celtic overtones. But..
Hello Share Mates: As you probably know, Barclay's Bank (BARC) has launched a massive rights issue. They need loads of cash in reserve, just in case the whole credit crunch thingy happens again.
Fox Marble (FOX) has released its half yearly result for the six month period to 30th June 2013. The company reported a loss of Euro1.066M for the period. With the shares at 15p, house broker Fox Davies has published a post numbers note.
More from the growing US Oil & Gas (USOP) scandal. The Eblana1 workover 2 daily reports have now been released by the Nevada Division of Minerals and they're a mystery. They can be seen here Apart from the fact that key daily reports seem to be missing (including the reports immediately after an alleged oil flow), the data we can see, and the timeline, just doesn't add up.
Hello Sharemates: There is a mind-set which should be eradicated in Shareland, but can I usually ignore it? Can I Buckden Abbey!
George Osborne is set to follow Nigel Lawson as the chancellor who created a mega house price bubble. It is fun while it lasts but real pain is on the way. It is only a matter of when.
Jeepers – yet another email from the Sefton (SER) cupboard full of skeletons has emerged and this one raises a ghastly question for uber-expensive bully boy lawyers Pinsent Masons. Is it genuine? God only knows but round at Pinsents there is a deathly serious question to answer.
We have had the pump now when’s the dump – the placing of new shares ? It is now only a matter of time for AIM listed Sovereign Mines of Africa (SMA) which at 3.5p is valued at £8.3 million. The company is clearly sub scale as a gold explorer and its cash position is dire. Come on Sovereign – it’s time to fess up: how much will you be diluting shareholders to hell and when? I am sure that your slimeball broker Jerry Keen of Shore Cap is already on the case.
The U.S. Fed delivered a surprise gift to the markets by staying put on its QE bond purchases. The daily settlement time for the U.S. Comex gold futures ended before the Fed announcements on Wednesday, and so the gold futures jumped 4.73 percent on Thursday to $1,369.50 while the spot gold price jumped 4.06 percent on Wednesday and 0.18 percent on Thursday.
Hello Gang: Well, that was a nice surprise. The Americans decided, against all expectations, to keep the old quantitative easing on the boil. This sent US shares shooting ahead and British stocks picked up the story on the day afterwards.
EMED (EMED) has today announced that CEO and company founder Harry Adams has resigned with immediate effect. Yeah right…time to get out some piano wire for another PR man who is being economical with the actualites. Step forward my old mate Nick Rome...
The release goes on with the usual corporate bullshit: “The Board would like to thank Mr. Anagnostaras-Adams for his dedication, leadership and contribution to the Company during his tenure as CEO.” Oh please, pass the sick bag.
K3 Business Technology (KBT) has announced results for its year ended 30th June 2013 reflecting "very weak markets, especially in the retail sector, at a time of major investment in Project Gemstone, which is delivering a new Microsoft-certified AX solution for the retail market” , but reports that it ended the year "very encouragingly”
Lucian Miers' 3.1p short call on UK Oil & Gas (UKOG) seems to be, at present, right up there with most of the share tips of the market abuser Chris Oil in the pantheons of duff calls. The shares surged yesterday to 7.25p-7.3p. Ouch.
Disgraced Share Ramper Roger Lawson of ShareSoc is determined to use his wealth to stop publication of legitimate comments about his writing and share dealing activities and has thus threatened me, Tom Winnifrith with both a libel case and an injunction for harassment. I will see you in Court Bitchez before I agree to his demands to remove all articles about him, publish a grovelling apology dictated by him, accept a gagging orrder and pay damages as I set out on Monday HERE.
Andrew Monk of VSA Resources has a geography lessn for those following oil explorers. Believe it or not the hot spot is not somewhere close to Gatwick Airport but somewhere a bit more exotic.
Oh dear. Poor old Evil Knievil who has been a perma bull of Watchstone (WTG), the former Quenron (QPP), loftily dismissing claims by Slater & Gordon for £637 million and my analysis as not worth the paper they were writen on. Oh how bullish was the great man, at 141p, just a few weeks ago as he posted his bon mots on a Bulletin Board. The shares have duly plunged to just 97.5p so costing EK and his fellow BB Morons a good packet. Poor Evil. Poor BB Morons.
Big Sofa's (BST) AGM went smoothly enough but the market seems to have overlooked the statement from chairman Nicholas Mustoe. It really is very exciting indeed. Mustoe stated:
I must apologise. Yesterday I wrote an article stating that Totally was in breach of AIM regulations in not making an announcement about its CFO getting another job. I was wrong; I have given myself a good and proper birching this morning and am here to beg forgiveness.
The trouble with Norfolk's is that in the end they run out of other people's money. And that brings us to MySQUAR (MYSQ) the sort of company which, even by the lowly standards of the AIM Casino, is a dog. A Source has been on the trombone and says...
I wrote last week about ITV (ITV) pinching Easyjet (EZJ)'s CEO Carolyn McCall and no doubt she is rubbing her hands together thinking not just about her new pay and incentives package but after today's update...also a fourth series of Love Island. The show only a minority of you will ever have viewed figured prominently in today's corporate presentation as ITV's management team attempted to get down with the kids - and rev up the financial analytical community - with lots of excitable statistics about viewer levels, website interactions and app/short video downloads.
Those who heard Paul Atherley of Berkeley Energia (BKY) on the main stage miners session at UK INvestor Show 2017 will be well versed in the uranium bull case. Paul is booked in to be back again in 2018 for a refresher but I need no convincing, we have a few of his shares just in case. Meanwhile here is another crash course on why you need uranium exposure.
Since we previously updated on Obtala (OBT) at the start of this month, there have been developments including a quarterly report. The shares are down but is this fair?
Audioboom (BOOM) has today announced that CFO, David McDonagh has left "with immediate effect". It says it is looking for a replacement but gives no reason for the departure. And oddly this resignation occurs just one week after the company published interims. It was clearly not planned.
Nu-Oil and Gas (NUOG) is a company that I covered a couple of weeks back as being totally over-valued, and although it has pulled back a bit I think it potentially has further to go.
Yesterday at 5.57pm this RNS was released by AIM-listed (for now) Nyota Minerals (NYO). It followed this RNS at 7am that morning. Nothing extraordinary, two TR-1s issued but it seems that former chairman has been offloading shares issued to him by the company in lieu of director fees in short order.
Having already declined from approaching 50p earlier this month, shares in Vertu Motors (VTU) are currently slightly further lower, at 43p, despite an “AGM Statement” announcement including that “at this stage, the board expects the group's trading performance for the year ending 28 February 2018 to be in line with market expectations”…
Currently attempting to push a 2.9p per share offer from S&P 500 financial services technology company Fiserv through, Monitise (MONI) has followed the recent lead of InterQuest (ITQ) in delivering a downbeat trading update…
Hello Share Shedders. When I invested in Royal Mail (RMG) on the golden day it went public, I made an instant paper profit. I sold the shares soon afterwards at an even bigger gain. However, others in my family, hung onto their shares. And since July 2016 there has been a slough of despond.
Plant Impact (PIM) has announced the conditional placing of new shares in the company at 31p each raising a gross approximately £4 million, with the announcement also including “the placing place (price?) represents a premium of 6.0 per cent to the closing mid-market price of 29.25 pence per existing ordinary share on 25 July 2017”. Hmmm…
