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.
AIM-listed Frontera (FRR) has announced the appointment of WH Ireland (WHI) as broker to the company. I’m sure they will be very happy together, but in the wake of a series of loan conversions to wipe out debt you might wonder if it is placing ahoy. The good news is that they even tell us that it is!
CyanConnode (CYAN), which describes itself as “the world leader in narrowband radio mesh networks”, has updated on the first half of 2017; “a busy period for the company with key existing relationships strengthened and the company's global reach enhanced”. Sounds encouraging, so why are the shares currently lower at 0.15p?...
The AIM casino has hosted the London stockmarket's biggest fraud for almost 40 years (Quindell) and a raft of smaller frauds in recent years. One might almost say that fraud is endemic. Yet, in a consultation paper published this week, the London Stock Exchange (LSE) has insisted that it is not within the remit of its own AIM Regulation department to tackle fraud or indeed do anything about it. This shows a complete contempt for investors - we bank the fees, you bank the losses.
I haven’t looked at UK Oil and Gas (UKOG), and more specifically the Horse Hill oil field, for quite a while and a lot has changed in the meantime, so I thought it about time that I revisited it.
Early this year we showed the ten top shorted London-listed shares at the start of 2017. Following the recent half-year and crash in the top one, Carillion (CLLN), how are they performing?...
Hello Share Scudders. What does Taptica International (TAP) actually do? It states it does ‘data-focused marketing solutions’.
Having at the end of last week announced a conditional, bailout (and thus dilution-extraordinaire – a gross £1.75 million at 1.75p per share) placing, blur Group (BLUR) has now announced immediate effect “Board Restructuring”…
Following my initial piece on the Woodford-backed Eve Sleep (EVE) two weeks ago, I thought I would comment on today’s trading update which outlined great growth but it’s what it doesn’t say that worries me a tad.
Shares in cloud-based software business integrating communications into CRM platforms, CloudCall (CALL) are currently accelerating beyond 100p on the back of a first half of 2017 trading update…
The Quindell boys are back in town, as they buy a worthless little business, Business Advisory Services (BAS), from Watchstone - having netted £100 million from the originalheist. To celebrate their adventureering, they are sponsoring this week's Bulletin Board Moron contest.
Last night at no-one-is-watching o’clock AIM-listed Parallel Media (PAA) slipped out a correction to its major shareholders listed in the recent full-year results for 2016. Actually, it was a major correction: 33% of the company!
It was my great privilege to speak at The UK Investor Show this year, along with the illustrious bears and short-selling raiders Lucian Miers, Matthew Earl and Gabriele Grego. For my choice of bear tips, I again went for the easy target of Fastjet (FJET) (down by over 70% since I first mentioned it in November 2015), but my new tip was the rarely-discussed pallet company, RM2 International (RM2).
Don't these fools ever learn? For chancers and crooks like Darren Winters, the shysters at Globo, Blinkx, Quindell and Daniel Stewart and for lyin Chris Cleverley and Lord Hain of sleaze and for so many others, sending me a fascist lawyers letter never works out well. That is not for them at least. But it seems there is one born every day. A new letter is in demanding that three years of articles be removed, that damages and costs be paid and that I put my name to a grovelling apology dictated by this poltroon. Who do you think is daft enough to have sent it? Vote now in our latest poll with a deadline of midnight tonight.
Falanx (FLX) has finally released its results for the year to March 31. The numbers were in line but it is the forward looking statement that is the dazzler. That is not reflected in the share price which came off by more than 10% on the session at 6.75p-7p. We think the market called that wrong and here is why.
Tim Martin is again our4 hero of the day, speaking out against the FCA,m the CBI, the Financial Times and other remoaners" who are trtying to dilute Brexit with disingeneous comment. On the occassion of a trading statement from his JD Wetherspoon (JDW) chain of ghastly plastic pubs, Martin has let rip. The great man states:
The distracting noise and untruthful commentary surrounding the results from Big Sofa (BST) a couple of weeks ago has died down and the shares have started a re-rate - they are now 25p-26.5p and if you can get any stock at all at 25p or better you should do so. We continue to see a minimum price target of 50p + to sell. Today we have news of two heavy hitters coming on board.
Hello Share Twitchers. Truth be told I was getting a bit worried about my Galliford Try (GFRD) shares. They initially did really well for me. So much so that I topped up rather generously a few months ago. That led to the usual falling away of share value.
The macro news today showed a glimmer of hope for retailers with the UK British Retail Consortium (BRC) data showing a 1.2% rise in June like-for-like retail sales compared to a year ago. All hail the hot weather and the Eid celebrations which apparently - according to the experts - helped out.
I am with my father and he enjoys being part of bearcast so here is another one off. We start on the use of language and its misuse something which Dad and I talk about a lot. Thus there was Theresa May referring to THE cricket. And a fellow Tory MP who used a word she really should not have used in a phrase with a clear meaning. many said the phrase was racist. It was not it is the word that is, rightly, just not acceptable. That brings me to Sound Energy (SOU), Amur Minerals (AMC), MySquar (MYSQ) and Bagir (BAGR). I leave Shipston tonight so no more father and son bearcasts, regular podcasts will be back in September.
iii, aka Interactive Investor, do not seem happy at being called total bastards for changing the terms for holding client money so that clients, that is mug punters like you and I, get more risk and iii gets more money. It says that this is not the objective of what is going on any anyhow other stockbrokers such as Hargreaves Lansdown and the Share Centre are doing the same thing. As such I am happy to clarify " I apologise for saying that iii are total bastards. I meant to say that iii like many other stockbrokers including Hargreaves Lansdown and the Share Centre are total bastards." The iii spokesman is keen that I put this all in context. iii's comments are in bold, my translation service is below.
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.
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, this really is a clusterfuck even by the lowly standards of the AIM Casino. You will remember that AIM listed Glenwick (GWIK), linked via Peterhouse Corporate Finance and Amanda Van Dyke to fellow AIM dog Paternoster Resources (PRS) in a related party snakefest, has had its shares suspended an RTO but there have been a few problemos. Oh dear. Oh dear.
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.
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.
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.
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?
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:
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.
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...
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”…
With a calendar financial year and no updates on trading since 21st March-announced results for 2016, a “Trading Update” announcement from waste management company Augean (AUG) seems routine. However, the shares are currently circa 14% lower, at below 55p…
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.
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.
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…
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.
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.
