Bonmarche – “extremely poor” sales, though argues “confident in the strategy” & “well prepared to weather the storm”. Really?
Like Zac "the Knife" Phillips the City's No 1 oil analyst, I have been calling Nighthawk (HAWK) out as worthless crap for ages and thus today's 'fess up bu the company is yet another vindication, as you can see HERE
Oh dear the fat lady needs to get on stage quick. I have been warning you that Nighthawk (HAWK) was worthless toast for ages but as ever the bulletin board savants knew better. Well folks now the company has fessed up. Once again the scoreboard reads: The Sheriff of AIM 5 Morons 0.
I have warned you often enough that Nighthawk Energy (HAWK) is a drowning in debt dog with fleas and that its shares are worthless. But obviously while I trained as an oil analyst with the City's top rated team, Bulletin Board Morons know better. So here is Zac "the Knife" Phillips of SP Angel, the City's No 1 oil analyst, to explain why today's PR guff announcement really means. Over to "the knife":
Nighthawk (HAWK) is out of cash, drowning in debt, burning cash and its production is falling month on month and that trend is not changing. In plain English it is 100% fecked. Today we have news of a massive boardroom resignation. We offer up a ShareProphets translation service
Shares in Nighthawk Energy (HAWK) are off by 40% today at 0.225p but that still values the company at £2.17 million. For a company that looks utterly screwed that is surely far too high? About £2.17 million too high.
The City's No 1 oil analyst Zac Phillips of SP Angel is not, like most of his peers, a man who ignores the failings of the numerous useless management teams among the AIM Casino's O&G legion. His verdict on the latest statement from the clowns who run worthless, drowning in debt, Nighthawk Energy (HAWK) is brutal and to the point. Over to "the knife:"
The City's Number one oil analyst Zac "the Knife" Phillips is back from celebrating Christmas by butchering baby seals or throwing cute little rabbits to a pack of bloodthirsty dogs and is doing what he does best - sticking it to useless management teams on the AIM Casino. Today Nighthawk (HAWK) has served up a piss poor operational update and the SP Angel analyst opines
The City's number one oil analyst, Zac "the Knife" Phillips of SP Angel has a few words to say about today's lamentable trading update from Nighthawk Energy (HAWK). In short he puts the management on notice that it is now drinking in the last chance saloon. That, I think, is his way of saying you should sell the shares. The Knife writes:
Nighthawk Energy (HAWK) has announced that it has settled US litigation today which is good news. The bad news is that the settlement is nothing like what is described in the RNS. The company is misleading investors in saying that this is a nil cash settlement. And thus the City's top oil analyst, Zac "the Knife" Phillips of SP Angel senses blood. He writes:
Last week Nighthawk Energy (HAWK) issued an operational update. Over the weekend its erstwhile business partner Running Foxes issued a press release which puts Nighthawk in a bind. I shall leave the rest to the City's top oil analyst. Over to Mr Zak "the Knife" Phillips at SP Angel:
SP Angel analyst Zac Phillips has now really got the bit between his teeth. Normally he is Mr Nice Guy but he scents blood at POS Nighthawk (HAWK) and has today given it another savaging. This is one of the most brutal assessments of an AIM listed company and of management incompetence I have seen penned by a City analyst in 25 years. Good work Zac, keep it up. Mr Nice Guy turned Mr Hyde says:
I have noted before that Zac Phillips, the oil analyst at SP Angel is normally only too kind to shite oil companies on the AIM Casino. He bends over to be nice to them and to excuse their lamentable performance. But just now and then, the inner Zac emerges. It is like when mild mannered Sir Geoffrey Howe plunged the knife into the blessed Lady Thatcher, an episode which was seen as "like being savaged by a dead sheep"
On April Fool’s day last week, AIM-listed Nighthawk Energy (HAWK) provided the market with a 7am RNS. There was good news and bad news. Or, rather, not-quite-as-bad-as-it-might-have-been news, and very bad news indeed. Unfortunately the better bit was corrected yesterday afternoon. An extended April Fool, then.
Life is pretty grim for Nighthawk (HAWK). By April 16 it has to figure out how to repay $10 million of its $23 million borrowings despite having only $2 million of cash. There must be a solution but it may not be entirely pleasant for shareholders. But at least the company has a sense of humour, now admitting that production numbers it issued on April 1st were utterly bogus. April Fool! Shucks, its shareholders really believed you. Good one!
The weekend news from the oil sector is grim. I am not sure that folks out there in, what Malcolm Stacey might term, punterland realise just how grim it is. There is a massive PR and IR industry supporting the proposition that things can only get better. Au contraire, for the next few months at least, they are going to get a lot worse. And in that spirit I offer up a list of eleven oil E&Ps to sell now, to get out what and while you can, as they could well hit zero.

Nighthawk Energy (HAWK) has had more than its fair share of ups and downs over the years, but now seems to be heading in the right direction. The AIM-listed oil producer and explorer is based in the US with licences in various parts of Colorado, and the latest update showed that during July it produced over 2,000bopd – although this was down slightly on the previous two months due to maintenance work and testing.
The Bulletin Board Moron of the Week is a ShareProphets reader nsf297 who has taken grave exception to my shock Nighthawk revelations of yesterday. Nsf297 has to blame someone else for life’s misfortunes. He writes on Shareprophets comments section:
Earlier today I revealed how Nighthawk Energy (HAWK) was served with papers for a potentially large legal claim by its former business partner Running Foxes on 29th April but had not bothered to tell shareholders. Nighthawk has responded but its statement is er… “interesting.” I have now spoken to Running Foxes. Ho. Ho.
And today’s star turn on the AIM Cesspit is Nighthawk Energy (HAWK) which was served with papers for a major law suit on April 29th. Surely under AIM rules it should have fessed up to shareholders even if it thought the case was without merit? Fear not, Nighthawk may not want to issue an RNS but the Sheriff of AIM is here to help.
The party for fans of Nighthawk Energy (HAWK) on a charting basis started with the bull flag buy signal above the 200 day moving average in July, followed by the golden cross buy signal between the 50 day / 200 day moving averages in July.
On May 23rd Nighthawk Energy shares were trading at 4.89p and having gapped up through their 200 day moving average were given a 7p target. A couple of weeks on and we have a fresh gap and a new upside target of as high as 9p.
While it may be easy to get caught up in the “euphoria” of a big up day for private investor favourite Nighthawk Energy, the real plus point here is the constructive profile of the daily chart here over recent months.
In theory Nighthawk Energy (HAWK) could be regarded as being close to perfection in terms of being a speculative minnow destined for great things.
