2021 Vomit List Review– How has a Rising oil price impacted my Crystal ball clarity?

So here we are once again considering the merits of a bucket of highly avoidable oily sector investments I heaved into a bucket this time last year, uninfluenced by free pork pies or site visits. The 2021 Vomit list. After chucking up 9 out of 10 winners in its inaugural 2020 list, what has 2021 thrown up? Perhaps none given the rising oil price? Don’t be silly – “Lying” Steve Sanderson would never let me down!

Ascent Resources becomes Descent Resources: The James “Dracula” Parsons kiss of death

With James Parsons as Executive chairman you know: A) He will make a lot of money, b) He will ramp the shares, c) It will end in tears. It does not matter what the company is, with Dracula at the helm nothing changes. And so on Friday at no-one is watching O’Clock, 4.56 PM, there was news from Slovenia where Ascent’s attempts to deliver a gas project have, it claims, been stymied by the Goverrnment. Oh dear, news at that time is never good.

2021 Vomit List- Who’s in the running for the “2021 Golden Technicolour Yawn”? 10 oil stocks to crash!

With the 2020 Vomit list throwing up 9 out of 10 sick investments, it’s time to think about next year. The oil price is looking to be on the upwards trajectory, and hence any company really needs to be a standout monument to investment stupidity to be considered for entry to this year’s bucket list.

Vomit List- 2020 Vomit Bucket Winners: 10 oil dogs reviewed

After a rolling year of oil price movements, I find myself once again sat next to the fire at Christmas time cogitating oil company performance and prospects. Having suggested I would rather hold a bucket of Vomit than some oil shares this time last year, it’s time to review just how much money I did not lose. Yep it’s time to project the 2020 Vomit list awards to the deserving winners.

Ramper James Parsons with an Ascent share purchase which is a sell signal

Ascent Resources (AST) has only avoided a crash landing in tits up alley thanks to the provision of death spiral finance by Riverfort Global and Align Research. Essentially, it has sod all cash, its assets in Slovenia it failed to monetize for eons and some joke Cuban assets. At c6p it is capitalised at c£5 million. Given Parsons’ track record as a pump and dumper and value destroyer, only a total poltroon would buy any shares. So step forward… Mr James Parsons.

Beggar

Take Pity and bail out the dogs supported by Richard Jennings of Align

No!  The dogs to whom I refer are not Ascent Resources (AST) and other pond life companies residing at the bottom end of the AIM sewer who are blessed with enthusiastic Align Research reports penned by the halfwitted enabler of fraud and smearer of journalists Dr Michael Green. But to a far more worthy cause as you can see below.

Caspian Sunrise – Tom is correct on finance, but the rest is far worse! Zero!

Tom Winnifrith commented in Bearcast on Friday that in his view Caspian Sunrise (CASP) is a potential zero based on review of the interim finance numbers. I concur with the conclusions but I will add a few comments of my own. For me it is a total shite bag of an investment case with a highly questionable transaction to add to the mix. I’m amazed I have arms of sufficient length to type this ramble while I run for the hills…

Dr Michael Green at Align on Ascent Resources – now he really is taking the piss

I have commented before on how Dr Michael Green should not be working in the City because of the role he played in the Sefton(SER) fraud which included launching a dirty tricks campaign against the heroic investigative journalists Mr Daniel Levi and er…me. A couple of months ago, he published a note on Bluebird Merchant (BMV) with a price target which, though I am a very supportive shareholder, especially after today’s RNS, I said at the time was quite utterly bonkers. It still is. Today he opines on Ascent Resources (AST) and his research makes that on Bluebird seem sober and considered.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Journalist-smearing motherfuckers Citigate Dewe Rogerson & FastJet Edition

I have been waiting for this day for a long while. I hope that comrade Graham Neary has a glass (or seven) of Black Velvet over in Ireland tonight. I shall have an ouzo as I enjoy some karma heading to the journalist-smearing fascist PR bastards at Citigate. I should warn you that this podcast contains some bad language as I consider the AIM demise of Fastjet (FJET). I laugh at a rumour about Ascent Resources (AST) and the whore blogger Malcolm Graham Wood and I consider the laughable plans of the pathetic nanny state regime of Bojo to tackle obesity.  I also look at Cineworld (CINE), R4E (R4E) and Supply@ME Capital (SYME), three firms I fear are in the merde.

Oil sector Vomit List Update– What’s the verdict so far? Which becomes terminal first?

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: my distraction from the stockmarket crash is working out my odds of dying from coronavirus

It is a happy game which I have discussed with a couple of listeners. Anyhow, it just shows how data can be interpreted in so many ways. I am, you may be pleased, or maybe distressed, to hear taking steps tpo improve my chances. I then discuss the market crash and how it affects different classes of shares - the issue for us all is not whether our investments are cheap but will the equity in them survive? If the answer is YES then I suspect they are now cheap. If NO well then they are still expensive. I discuss Optibiotix (OPTI), Bidstack (BIDS), Versarien (VRS), Big Sofa (BST), Big Dish (DISH), Restaurant Group (RTN), Ascent Resources (AST), City Centre Pubs (CTC) and also why gold and gold shares are not soaring.

Ascent Resources - placing inevitable and imminent - surely it is time just to put this dog down?

My attention was drawn to Ascent Resources (AST) last nightby a number of rampy comments on the boards.  It’s one that I’ve shorted in the past and if you can get borrow then I suggest that you think of doing that when markets open after the long weekend.  The analysis is simple: Ascent is a dog, its business model is farcical, it’s run out of cash again, rather coincidentally (as is always the case on AIM) the share price has been ramped in the last week and a discounted bucket shop placing must be just round the corner

Ascent Resources (AST) has hardly exactly lived up to its name in recent times, as it has been on a steady downwards trajectory for some time now.

The publicity hungry, failing, fund manager Neil Woodford is all over the papers. On the markets he's right ( and bearish) but when discussing his own (failing) funds he is talking utter bollocks and I explain why.

I comment on R4E (R4E) on the disgraceful behaviour of Pathfinder Minerals (PFP), look at RM2 (RM2) and then finally at Sabien (SNT) which look either to be on the brink of a last gasp fundraise ( at a more than 99% discount to the IPO price) or of insolvency.

A challenge to Eden Research (EDEN) about its FRAUD - will it please send me a lawyers letter as I really want to see the bitchez in Court. Its PR man Queenie McManus smearing me is just so tedious. Man up Queenie and do the decent thing. I also suggest that Nomad Shore Cap thinks twice before assisting Eden with a bailout placing. In this podcast I also look at DDD Group (DDD), Ascent Resoures (AST), Auhua (ACE), ECR Minerals (ECR), Evocutis (EVO), Alba (ALBA) & Stellar Resources (STG)

Does AIM make thieves of us all?

I’ve had an interesting discussion with our stalwart reader Wildrides on my recent 88 Energy piece (88E). Cut a long story short Wildrides has made a number of comments on pieces I’ve written pointing out the obvious flaws in the businesses I’ve covered. Wildrides and I swap the odd email, so I do know his real name. He is an experienced investor and someone whose opinion I respect, but our recent exchange has left me wondering; does AIM make thieves of us all?

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast 12 November: Hero (Optibiotix) & a stack of zeros

In this podcast i start with two shares on the up: Optibiotix (OPTI) and Volex (VLX). One's a dog and it is not Optibiotix. There is a word on Finnaust (FAM) a caveat on yesterday's bearcast. Then onto Ascent Resources (AST) - that may surprise you - Oilex (OEX), Rolls Royce (RR), Ubisense (UBI), Communisis (CMS), Spire Health (SPI) and Atlas Developments (ADSS) where flip flop is talking more nonsense.

Provexis raises £280,000, Primarybid.com gathers steam

Yesterday morning, Provexis (PXS) announced it had raised £280,000 through Primarybid.com. I won’t pretend to know the first thing about Provexis, but this looks like a positive step forward in the evolution of AIM. Primarybid.com is a crowdfunding service, designed to end the tyranny of bucket shop placements on AIM.
