Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Is this entrapment I see before me Charlotte dearest?

Published 100 days ago

I start with communications received by email and twitter. I sense attempted entrapment by shareholders in the fraud Supply@ME Capital (SYME). Then it is onto a speech by Debbie Gupta of the FCA and her failure to understand why her organisation is not fit for purpose.  Then to Nightcap (NGHT), Petra Diamonds (PDL), Mountfield (MOGP), Skibiotherapeutics (SBTX) and me being fat as described here.

Petra Diamonds is about to complete balance sheet restructuring but I still wouldn't touch the equity

Published 123 days ago

Petra Diamonds (PDL) is one of those mining companies which is drowning in debt and could very easily have gone bust, had it not recently announced a restructuring with its lenders.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Vela is today's Covid ramp but as a supposed beneficiary I say it is all bollocks

Published 241 days ago

I speak as a type 2 diabetes sufferer – today’s Covid ramp from Vela (VELA) is total bollocks. I also cover stinky share dumping by the Trainline (TRN) bird, Petra Diamonds (PDL), where I am vindicated again but not holding my breath for BBMs to apologise, Wishbone Gold (WSBN), Panthera Resources (PAT) and POS Mosman Oil & Gas (MSMN) – now in the Minus 99% club. Time for boardroom bonuses all round I reckon, as it places again.

Petra Diamonds Dissembles as the countdown to doom continues, 13 days to go

Published 275 days ago

Yesterday, Petra Diamonds (PDL) issued an RNS which sounded like good news: “Recovery of Five High Quality Blue Diamonds”. Feck FYB thought the morons and the shares jumped by 10%…but this was dissembling. For beneath the bullish headline was not such good news: 

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Why is Bidstack trolling Darren Atwater?

Published 330 days ago

Answers on a postcard please. Anyhow, it prompts me to discuss when Bidstack (BIDS) will run out of cash again so will have to do another bailout funding (again), and the history of its associates harassing me. I discuss historic death threats I have received. Elsewhere, I have more words on Lenigas PLC and frenzied activity in gold. I look at Midatech Pharma (MTPH), Petra Diamonds (PDL) and Symphony Environmental (SYM).

Petra Diamonds asset sale news ultimately makes it look to be heading for a wipeout for equity holders

Published 354 days ago

Buying bombed-out shares in companies that have previously run as successful businesses can be very lucrative if they somehow manage to turn things around, but it also offers a very high chance of losing all your money if you are proven wrong and hold to the bitter end. There are plenty of companies on the stockmarket that have been at death’s door but have managed to survive and have subsequently gone on to do quite well, but there are also a large number of others that went bust and where investors lost all their money, and there is a very fine line between the two if you do decide to take a risk on a company that finds itself in this situation.

This Really is Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: St James House surely the fat lady is gargling now?

Published 414 days ago

This is my day of peak recordings - 7 hours of interviews and bearcast underway. I kid you not. apart from bearcast it is all great material for the Shareprophets shares show on May 9. I have just done the Jim Mellon recording which should knock your socks off. Poor man, he is trapped in lockdown in the Isle of Man but seems to be bearing up well. Anyhow, buy your ticket HERE. In this podcast I look at Eurasia Mining (EUA), Scancell (SCLP), 13 Energy (I3E), Arden Partners (ARDN), Petra Diamonds (PDL) and Intu (INTU).

Two stocks which are clearly slam dunk zeros

Published 445 days ago

Okay, I have been wrong with such calls before. Quindell (QPP) was a total and demonstrable fraud, running on fumes and so just had to be a zero... Then along came those Aussie poltroons from Slater & Gordon, who bought most of its worthless assets, so saving Quindell but train-wrecking their own company. It happens now and again that the corporate world throws up an even bigger fool than your average Bulletin Board Moron on the LSE Asylum. Moreover, these are “challenging” times...

Petra Diamonds the slide to zero accelerates – even at 3p the market cap is £25 million too high

Published 470 days ago

I have repeatedly warned you on this website that Petra Diamonds (PDL) is an accident waiting to happen. It is happening and this is one where the shares have a clear end game of 0p. Let’s start with the three top golden rules of investing in mining companies…

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: what happens when the Donald Trump stockmarket bubble bursts?

Published 484 days ago

I start with a bit about the US election this November, the Trump economic and stockmarket bubble and when it will burst. It is a when not an if and in that vein I review stocks that could be utterly cratered when the mood music changes including Petra Diamonds (PDL), De La Rue (DLAR), Versarien (VRS) and other jam tomorrow overvalued jokes and NMC Health (NMC). And I suggesy how you start to prepare for the bubble bursting.

Sometimes with recovery plays like Petra Diamonds it becomes clear you've got it wrong and it is time to cut your losses

Published 484 days ago

Whenever you buy a share which you view as a potential recovery play, you have to accept the risk that of them will do everything but actually recover, and if the situation worsens then it is time to cut your losses and sell.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Cambridge, 14 March, £83, Lingerie on Expenses - She's back! Bargain!

Published 488 days ago

hey what better way to mark International Women's day than to hear an overpaid BBC nobody interview someone who  says she is " A self-confessed believer in the human spirit, she is ‘ridiculously and overwhelmingly happy with the opportunities that she has to develop and how she can play into the amazing world that we live in." Yup, you know who is back. Elsewhere in this podcast I discuss Versarien (VRS), whose Nomad DID resign, ValiRx (VAL), Sound Energy (SOU), Petra Diamonds (PDL), Novacyt (NCYT), Nostra Terra (NTOG) and Laura Ashley (ALY). I also ask you to be generous and give to a great cause today HERE

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Bat soup worries - should we sell becuase of the China Virus?

Published 509 days ago

In short no, although this virus could well be far larger than some folks (Lucian) think. Elsewhere I discuss useless research from broker Goetz and Optibiotix (OPTI), Future (FUTR), Amigo (AMGO), Iconic (ICON), Oracle (ORCP) and Petra Diamonds (PDL)

Always back the debt markets over equity markets

Published 581 days ago

The value of any asset traded in any volume is determined by the price at which buyers and sellers are prepared to transact. So for some surprisingly large companies where the liquidity ( lack of) or some other reason means there are no institutional investors, or trades, the share price is thus largely determined by private investors, many of them untrained in analysis and some of them full blown Bulletin Board Morons.

Tom Winnifrith – the 10 most overvalued stocks on AIM

Published 585 days ago

Yesterday Waseem Shakoor’s top six stocks from the AIM Cesspit which he thought set to crash were revealed HERE. That seems to have annoyed a fair few folks on the Bulletin Boards so, on that basis, I thought I’d offer my top ten stocks to crash. In no particular order:

The 5 most overvalued stocks on AIM according to Waseem Shakoor

Published 585 days ago

Bet against the great Northern Bear Waseem Shakoor at your peril. He is invariably right and his ability to spot frauds and overpromotes is uncanny. So I asked the great man what he considered the five most overvalued stocks on the AIM casino. With an answer that will make him even more reviled on the Bulletin Boards, Waseem said:

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast - Forgive me while I point out how fecking clever I am - ref Defenx

After you have looked at the most-read articles and listened-to Bearcasts this week, answer me this question. How much foreign market companies would you like to see ShareProphets cover, in particular US, Europe, Oz, etc?

Is Petra Diamonds going bust? – hat tip Waseem Shakoor

Published 596 days ago

As at June 30 2019 Petra (PDL) had net debt of of $541 million. The shares, 45p a year ago are now 8.735p valuing the company at just £75.6 million. The question is: will Petra go bust?

Petra Diamonds results have done nothing to change my opinion of the company - I now hold myself

When a share keeps on falling you have to decide whether the decline is terminal or how good the chances are of a recovery at some point. In some cases you will just be throwing good money after bad, and just because the shares have traded at a higher level in the past doesn’t mean that they will necessarily do so again if the fundamental changes to the business are terminal. But we also see cases where there is a temporary decline followed by quite a strong recovery, especially where the business is reliant on factors that are cyclical – such as in the natural resources sector as commodity prices fluctuate – or where it has suffered from shorting or a persistent seller, or even a combination of all of these...

Petra Diamonds remains a speculative buy and could still turn the business around

Published 685 days ago

Petra Diamonds (PDL) is a company that I covered back in March and so far I have been wrong about it having potential as a speculative investment, as the share price has just taken another big drop.  

Petra Diamonds could add some sparkle to your portfolio

Published 814 days ago

Diamond miners have performed very poorly of late, but that doesn’t mean that trend will continue indefinitely - and now could be a good time to buy with a longer term view. Petra Diamonds (PDL) is definitely one in this sector which has caught my eye lately, and is one of several diamond miners which I have kept an eye on over the years...

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast - picking up Andrew Monk on a couple of things

Published 1122 days ago

Forgive the late bearcast. Blame it on Greek Hovel business. In today's podcast I look at Folli Follie, shares in which are slumping again as I warned you the other day HERE - tomorrow might be D (for Death) Day. I then take up Andrew Monk on AIQ (AIQ), Petra Diamonds (PDL) and the idea of consolidating brokers and Nomads via M&A. It makes no sense Andrew. Then I look at the GoTech (GOT) shambles - its now a dope play but frankly you must be a dope to own this stock. Then I cover Optibiotix (OPTI) again with a point folks like Cynical Bear have missed. Finally its i3 Energy (I3E). Thanks to those who have sponsored me as I suffer the dual agonies of walking 30 miles and having to listen to Brokerman Dan drone on all day, but 99% of bearcast listeners have not yet donated a tenner. Please do so HERE

The Blue Moon of Josephine May Bring You Luck - with Petra Diamonds.

Published 1759 days ago

Hello Share Shufflers. There’s been a lot of commendation for gold miners on this splendiferous website. And quite rightly, as many of them have put on impressive share value in the continuing uncertainty about currencies, Brexit, QE and so on. But if the value of gold rises, so should the price of silver, platinum and precious stones. So let’s not forget diamond miners like Petra Diamonds (PDL).

New gem licence for Botswana Diamonds

Published 2079 days ago

Botswana Diamonds (BOD), the gem hopeful chaired by occasionally controversial veteran Irish entrepreneur John Teeling, has won a new prospecting licence in the southern African state of Botswana covering ground which the Dublin-based AIM company describes as having ‘the highest priority’. Lately out of favour with investors who have sent its shares down from a 12-month high of 2.62p to 0.83p now, BOD owns half of Sunland Minerals, its 50-50 joint venture with state-controlled Russian diamond heavyweight Alrosa, and the Botswana government has awarded Sunland a three-year prospecting licence, PL 260/2015, covering 25 sq.km. in the diamond-rich Orapa region.

Stellar drives on to production

Published 2668 days ago

West African gem play Stellar Diamonds (STE) is hoping to bring two projects into production in Sierra Leone, which could yield 400,000 carats annually for a combined capital cost of $90 million (£56 million). But Stellar will need money to fund these ambitions from investors, potential partners or even bidders. This has obvious implications for the share price.

Bulletin Board Moron – Most Insane email of the week

Published 2717 days ago

I get some fairly crazy stuff in my email in-box: Nigerian chain mails, promotions for buy to let in Costa Rica, plus the usual range of Bulletin Board Morons with their crank suggestions. But this one, just arrived, from “All That Glitters” is a clear winner for Bulletin Board loon of the Century.  His charges are, you can take it, not exactly true. I reprint in full:
