Tom Winnifrith SHOCKING Bearcast: No individual accountants at all are paying a cent of the fines the FRC boasts about

This is a shocking revelation which I discuss in detail. It shows the Big 4 accountancy firms are actually incentivising partners to engage in risky and incorrect business practices by indemnifying them against all costs if they are found out. The Big 4 then treat such fines as just another cost of doing business. What is going on is a disgrace which expses the moral bankruptcy at the heart of the accountancy establishment and must force the FRC to rethink punishments. I also discuss Ariana Resources (AAU) and why it needs no PR but especially the shysters it currently uses, the deafening silence at Chill Brands (CHLL) which marks it out as a zero and Union Jack Oil (UJO) where I suspect it is tme to give up and look elsewhere in the sector.

At the weekend, ShareProphets’ favourite technical analyst seemed at his bearish worst, warning that the correction hasn’t played out yet, that gold could drop to the low $1800s and you should keep your powder dry. Of course, in the longer term, Jordan Roy-Byrne of TheDailyGold.com is a major gold bull so he sees a pull-back as an opportunity. On the other hand, I have been suggesting selective accumulation as and when the opportunity presents itself.

Ariana – surprises with share buy-back - shows how cheap the shares are

Turkish gold miner Ariana at 1.4p worth 2.82p – Panmure Gordon

Panmure Gordon is house broker to AIM-listed Turkish gold miner Ariana Resources (AAU) and is therefore not impartial – so you can takes its latest musings on Ariana with a pinch of salt if you wish. However, with the shares at 1.4p Panmure has upped its price target from 2.75p to 2.82p in the wake of Ariana’s Q3 numbers. Naturally, with a boat-load of this stock myself (so I'm not impartial either) and a target of at least 2p, I think Panmure are complete geniuses...

Ariana – cracking update from Kiziltepe: buy

AIM-listed Turkish gold producer and explorer Ariana Resources (AAU) announced its second quarter production numbers from its JV Kiziltepe mine this morning, and the numbers blew me away.

AIM-listed Ariana Resources (AAU) released its quarterly report this morning for its joint venture mine at Kiziltepe in western Turkey.

A day at UK Investor and my pick from the show

I went with a shopping list of companies I wanted to speak to, and to find something which might prove a worthwhile investment – that, alongside chairing one session, a cameo appearance in another, a meeting with the Global Shorting Conspiracy and a bit of time on the ShareProphets stand. My marks out of ten were about 6 or 7 – I didn’t get to see all the companies I wanted to but I think I gleaned some useful information. And I have my tip – although it is not a widows and orphans pick!

Ariana Resources - cracking update shares unmoved...they will

Under promise and over deliver is what every adviser tells every company listing on AIM. One might say that Ariana (AAU) has not kept to that script with perfection since it listed all those years ago back in the black and white era. But as we move though 2018 with the 50% owned Red Rabbit mine now operational Ariana is doing what it should as we saw in a cracking operational update this week.

Ariana remains a buy after resource update

A new Reality TV show at the Greek Hovel: Lots of snakes & AIM CEOs having to do real work

Today I plunged into the wildest parts of the land at the Greek Hovel. In the far corner the olive trees are immersed in frigana, long grass and bushes. If I was a snake that is where I'd live. No question. Tentatively I plunged in to prune but I looked nervously around me every step of the way. There are some areas where the plants are just so dense that I don't dare head in. I will need to call fearless George the Albanian to "assist me" with those. Or maybe I tackle them in December when the snakes are hibernating? Anyhow, as I pruned I thought of all those AIM CEOs sitting at their desks in London, earning vast salaries for shuffling paper around.

Ariana Resources……..We Know it’s a Gold Mine But Did you Know It’s a Silver Mine?

ShareProphets Tip of the Week: Buy Ariana Resources at a 0.85p offer

Like most gold juniors Ariana Resources (AAU) has suffered a terrible few years in share price terms. The share price is down from 6.5p less than three years ago but a lot is changing. Now is the time to buy in. Why

AAU
AAU

Ariana Resources: genuinely building value? At 0.9p looks tempting...

Ariana Resources (AAU) is not a company well known for its ability to keep deadlines. First scheduled production at the company’s Red Rabbit gold-silver project in western Turkey has been delayed several times over the years, but Ariana now claims it expects to reach this goal in H1 2015. Patience is bound to be wearing thin among long term shareholders, as they’ve watched the stock drift lower. The share price has been further restrained since last summer, after Ariana entered into an Equity Swap with Lanstead Capital.
