Previously updating, we noted even with the gutter standards of some AIM Nomads, there was no one who wanted to take Walcom on and thus the ShareProphets China AIM ‘Filthy Forty’ was down to just 4! How’s the latest performance?…

Last weekend, China breached Taiwanese airspace. It’s not the first time, they do it frequently enough for it no longer to be news but fresh from their victory in Hong Kong they are shaping up for a big one. Right now, having won in Hong Kong, they believe they can do what they like.

Previously updating - on China New Energy “HKEx Admission and Cancellation of Trading on AIM” - we noted at least it remains trading and with a public quote unlike most of the others. We wonder why it couldn’t “increase shareholder value and provide access to capital to enable the company to expand to its full potential” on London’s AIM! With also Walcom’s troubles increasing. Now “Cancellation - Walcom Group”...

China has the world’s most overleveraged, fragile financial system. In 2008, China’s total debt-to-GDP was 140%. It is now roughly 300%, while GDP is slowing. The economy is held together by capital controls. If those fail, the whole system fails. The capital flight in 2015/16 cost the government $1trln in reserves, and that was with ultra-dove Yellen in charge. Imagine what would have happened with Volcker at the helm.

I rather wondered what Dr Hon of The Global Group would say about China fraud on AIM but what he said was pretty explosive, exposing those within the City who quite deliberately and systematically broke Chinese rules to allow frauds to float in London. This was great stuff because the scandal is that those who did this still operate in the City today. I make a cameo appearance at the end. Enjoy.

Last week Chinese leader Xi Jinping became the third ruler in the communist country’s history to have his named enshrined in its constitution and the first to receive this honour while still alive. In 1947 the US announced the Marshall plan to help to rebuild the devastated economies of Western Europe. America was much more generous with its aid 70 years ago, but the plan was not just about charity. American companies needed consumers overseas to have enough money to buy their products, and Harry Truman wanted to tie the recipient countries in Western Europe into a military alliance to counter the threat from the Soviet Union. The modern version of the Marshall Plan is Xi’s Belt and Road initiative...

In the wake of AIM’s shocking execution of ZAI Corporate Finance last night – announced not once but three times at 6.15pm – the collection of AIM-listed to-be-former clients of that Nomad firm has been keen to get a message out to the market that the search for a replacement is already well underway.

With the demise of the twenty-fifth Filthy Forty listing, Asian Citrus (ACHL), as of this morning there are just 15 of our motley crew remaining listed on the Casino – and one of those, MoneySwap (SWAP), has now been suspended for more than six months, but it seems the Oxymorons have decided not to apply AIM Rule 41.

Ten days ago we identified ten of the (only) seventeen still-listed members of the ShareProphets AIM-China Filthy Forty which had a results reporting deadline of tomorrow (Fri 30 Sept) to meet. Actually, it was eleven as although Asian Citrus (ACHL) has a year-end of March it is dual listed in Hong Kong and only gets three months to report its finals there. But it won’t make it and has been suspended – as has MoneySwap (SWAP) which can’t get its accounts out on time. Which of the Filthy Forty are still to report, with just one day to go?
1846 days ago
Last year’s Sept reporting season saw a raft of casualties as members of the ShareProphets AIM-China Filthy Forty either failed to release numbers on time and/or saw the Nomad quit. With less than one week to go until deadline day for interims to June 2016 (or finals to March 2016) there are ten of the remaining 17 members of our iffy index still to report (or announce that they won’t). Which will be the next to get suspended?

Of the original 40 AIM-China companies we identified as our ShareProphets Filthy Forty, the steady attrition has seen that number whittled down to just 17 companies. The period either side of the reporting deadline for calendar 2015 numbers (30 June) saw further departures, but last year’s interims deadline saw a queue for AIM’s Death Row develop. How are we looking this time?

It seems that Yougov, Mori and whatever else the pollster are called these days have a thing or two to learn from ShareProphets polling. They keep on getting it wrong, but our readers responded to the question of how many delistings and suspensions were coming on the ShareProphets AIM-China Filthy Forty over four weeks from 17 June and half of respondents said two or three. So far, it is bang on. Mind you, there are still a few days to go.

The race to see which of the twenty remaining ShareProphets AIM China Filthy Forty companies clocks up a suspension/delisting is hotting up as we enter the final furlong. Yesterday saw the loose horse of Grand Group (GIPO) – a non filthy forty runner but an otherwise well qualified AIM-China play nonetheless – cross the line first with a suspension as it can’t get its accounts out on time. But with a surprise late run GTS Chemical (GTS) now looks clear of the field as they head for the line after announcing plans to delist in August, subject to the forgone conclusion of a vote at its AGM.

I previously highlighted that a good few of the twenty remaining ShareProphets AIM-China Filthy Forty faced a reporting deadline of Thursday this week, 30 June. In honour of Royal Ascot we ran a poll which showed that readers of ShareProphets reckoned on two or three suspensions/delistings to come over the next (now) just under three weeks. The race has now entered the final three furlongs…how are the runners and riders looking?

There are just twenty of the ShareProphets AIM-China Filthy Forty still listed – and three of those are currently suspended from trading.

ShareProphets is delighted to bring you the Filthy Forty Casino Elimination Stakes in celebration of Royal Ascot - it is time to place your bets!

The ShareProphets AIM-China Filthy Forty is already down to just 20 AIM-listed companies, with a further three currently suspended. The calendar FY2015 reporting deadline is now looming (30 June), which last year saw a splurge of suspensions and Nomad resignations as companies either failed to report or their advisers decided enough was enough. But we’ve had a good few RNSs in the last few days, so it is time for a rancid round-up!

There is a growing fear in financial and monetary circles that there is something deeply wrong with the global economy. Publicly, officials and professional investors alike have become confused by policy failures, and privately, occasionally even downright pessimistic, at a loss to see an easy solution.It is hardly exaggerating to say there is a growing feeling of impending doom. The reason this has happened is due to today’s Central Bankers and their very failure on the one subject about which they profess to be experts: economics.

The ShareProphets AIM-China Filthy Forty is today officially reduced to just 20 companies remaining listed on the Casino (Auhua, ACE, being the latest dispatch following a Nomad resignation and no replacement being found). But is it a problem specific to the Casino? It seems not, according to an interesting post by Steve Dickinson in China Law Blog (see HERE), but there are some simple tests which can be applied – take note AIM Nomads – which gives a very good indication of whether you are looking at a fraud or not.

According to a report in China Daily Europe a new wave of Chinese company listings are [sic] expected in London as the London Stock Exchange ramps up its efforts to attract Chinese firms.

The ShareProphets AIM-China Filthy Forty was launched on 15 August 2015, just 197 days ago, as a way of tracking what a concentrated stinking cesspit this mini-sector of the Casino was. At the time, already ten of the forty had left world’s most successful growth market for a variety of reasons: two had been booted off the Casino for failing to publish accounts, a further five had been booted off after a Nomad resignation and no replacement appointment, and three had delisted in, cough, the best interests of shareholders. One further company was, at the time, suspended as its Nomad had quit but the one month grace period to find a new one had not yet expired. (That duly became the next AIM-China execution).

With a hat-tip to Graham Chester for spotting it, I bring you a wonderful tale from the Hong Kong stock exchange. Out with the frilly frocks, cross-dressed hero and wicked step-mother, and let’s get the boos and hisses going in the audience. For some time we have, on ShareProphets, been calling for full forensic audits (oh no you haven’t! oh yes we have!) of all the remaining companies from the ShareProphets AIM-China Filthy Forty which have not yet been booted off the Casino (boo, hiss!). It seems that our sentiments are perhaps not falling completely on deaf ears, for in Hong Kong we have seen exactly that taking place with a company (currently suspended) called China Animal Healthcare. But there appears to have been a bit of a snag…..

In part 6 of this series, Graham Chester takes a look at the share-price performance of the remaining AIM-China companies which have listed in the last five years, and who has been doing the financial due diligence.

As the crony capitalists enjoyed their Black Tie dinner tonight to celebrate the world’s most successful growth market, might they have paused for a moment to reflect on the horrific losses which have been seen this year on AIM? Fat chance. One number ought to have had the champagne going down the wrong way, and that is how much capital has been wiped out on the ShareProphets AIM-China Filthy Forty so far this year from delistings and suspensions caused by Nomad resignations. I promise you that number is a horror.

Phew, what a scorcher! The heat really was turned up on the ShareProphets AIM-China Filthy Forty over the past two weeks. Last week we had one AIM-execution, a suspension (and subsequent restoration) as Vmoto (VMT) announced a transaction which we find less than credible (HERE) and results from Jiasen (JSI) which prompted Tom Winnifrith to present us with a choice that he was a banana or Jiasen is a fraud. And JQW (JQW) had its operations suspended by the Chinese authorities for contraventions of advertising and pyramid-selling regulations before releasing less than convincing interims. This week saw fourteen of the Filthy Forty racing to the line to get results filed by close of play Wednesday so as to avoid automatic suspension, two of which added to the overcrowding problem on AIM’s Death Row as their Nomad quit. Here is the ShareProphets round-up of AIM-China Red Flags served up this past week.

Of the 40 China stocks listed on AIM on June 1 2014 or listed since only 25 are still trading. 11 have been booted off and 4 are on death row awaiting expulsion following the loss of their Nomad. The returns from this portfolio of doom now average MINUS 50.125%. But actually it is worse.

This week George Osborne was merrily tweeting away that he was Delighted we have agreed with China to look into benefits of connecting UK and China stock markets.

With the ShareProphets AIM-China Filthy Forty turning up scandal after scandal, what on earth does he think he is doing?

Last month we launched the ShareProphets Filthy Forty – companies with their main operations in China, registered overseas (apart from a handful in Hong Kong) and listed on AIM on June 1 2014. We noted that the overall performance was astounding: average loss from IPO was 43%, and nine had already been booted off the exchange. An attrition rate of 22.5%. The reasons varied between Nomad resignations (5), being booted off for failing to publish accounts (2) and voluntary delistings (2).

Jersey Finance is terribly keen to get Chinese companies to register in Jersey and list their shares on the London Stock Exchange, notable on the AIM casino. What a marvellous set-up they offer: it is the jurisdiction of choice for corporate entities seeking to list, one fifth of Chinese companies listed in London are registered in Jersey, there is political and economic stability, a sound regulatory reputation and, of course, Jersey Finance has a representative office in Hong Kong (since 2009) just to ease things along. What’s not to like?

Just now and again readers on ShareProphets post utter gems which merit a wider audience. Reader its me is a City insider and knows how the system works or rather does not.

Global Lock and Safety (GLOK) was incorporated in the British Virgin Islands in December 2009 and listed 250 million shares on AIM on 21st October 2010, with Allenby Capital Limited as the nominated adviser and broker. The future looked bright with the then CEO claiming, "We are already one of the leading security providers in China and we know of no other providers of this type of comprehensive integrated security service in the Peoples Republic of China.”

I revealed yesterday how Houyan Lin of Naibu (NBU) has been rotting in prison since November 2014 yet his AIM casino shares carried on trading till January 9 2015 and there has been no RNS. Despite this – as I revealed a week or two back, AIM is working to get more China companies to list on the casino. Think again fools, now I can tell you about a second AIM CEO from China who has been arrested.

I have noted before the remarkable take of Ultrasonic a China shoe fraud from Fujian listed in Frankfurt. It is of note of you are stupid enough to own shares in AIM Casino listed Naibu (NBU) and Camkids (CAMK) which are also shoe plays from Fujian and also frauds.

Today Camkids (CAMK) has followed its fellow AIM casino Fujian shoe related China POS heroes Naibu (NBU) and China Chaintek (CTEK) in cutting their dividends despite claiming to be hugely cash generative and drowning in cash. As such we bring you the Monday Caption Contest. Please post your captions in the comments section below:

Last week we asked you for your thoughts on Alibaba, the world’s biggest ever IPO. It seems that 7% of you already hold the stock and 24% would buy at a lower price but that seven tenths of ShareProphets readers are bearish r not interested. And the results show why. We asked would you buy shares in Alibaba. And you said:

You think that the odd China fraud in Germany or the UK is just a case of a few bad apples? Think again. I bring you today an article from Chinafraud.blogspot.ca which lists all the frauds inflicted on American investor in recent years. And also details the nature of the scams. The list is incredibly long and demonstrates quite frankly that there is industrial scale fraud underway. No sane individual would own a single share in any Chinese company listed in AIM – read this and realise why.

Shares in Alibaba have raced ahead since its IPO and the Chinese internet giant ( which could not get a HK listing away so is US listed is now valued at more than Wal-Mart. Are you temped or compelled to get on board? Personally I think the valuation is insane and am not wild about Chinese stocks in general. But what do you think? The deadline for voting is midnight Sunday and you can vote only once unless you are from Glasgow where it appears multiple voting is par for the course.

The recent passing of its interim dividend by Naibu (NBU), which would have involved an outlay of £600,000 against claimed profits of £20 million and claimed net cash of £30 million has prompted accusations of fraud and skull doggery at the Chinese sports shoemaker and put the spotlight on other China frauds that might be lurking on AIM.

I think that it is now 100% clear that Naibu (NBU) is a fraud. It is only a matter of time before it goes to 0p or is booted off the AIM Casino. But where did it come from and is it unique? Meet Zedex Capital. What follows will shock you. It says so much about how corrupt AIM and the City advisors working on it have become. It is a scandal.

Yesterday I attempted to contact Abchurch Communications which acts as PR spinners for most of the China frauds on AIM and even to those Chinese Companies so bogus that they could not quite make it onto the AIM casino - see HERE. Lead toff spinner Henry Harrison-Topham was already away from his desk but another upper class twit took my call but refused to answer any questions. He had so many silver spoons in his mouth that I could barely understand a word he said. But it seems that the Abchurch Team were heading off for an away day, after spinning for the fraud Naibu (NBU) to prepare for the next China fraud to float. And we have obtained secret footage of that Abchurch away day...

Alibaba, the Chinese internet giant, is set to go public. Supporters say that it is like Amazon, eBay, PayPal and Google all rolled into one and could be the most profitable company in the world. Does that sound too good to be true?

Just when you thought, yet again, that digital technology had delivered the perfection of a perfect market, we find that a giant aircraft filled with humanity has apparently disappeared from all view and knowledge. It’s a bit like an Agatha Christie story on a non domestic scale; or rather more like Alfred Hitchcock’s film ‘The Lady Vanishes’ with the stunning tweed suited Dame May Witty - remember her? - playing the part of the vanished lady; and Naughton and Wayne as those none demonstrative civil service types whose only wish is to get back for the Test at the Oval.

Lunatics in popular fable are often spoken of as having taken over the lunatic asylum. It has probably never happened in what we like to call real life. But it has happened when the lunatic asylum is, by way of metaphor, the United States Congress and its moon struck inmates, the Tea Party and their fellow travellers in chaos.

I have long regarded China as a bubble. I have expect it to burst in spectacular fashion for quite some time. But that is the nature of bubbles: they keep expanding more and more and then day “pop” – it is all over. As such I bring you a fascinating piece out overnight from David Franklin, the market strategist at the world’s best known resource investment company Sprott. It is fascinating.
