Cathie Wood - the new Neil Woodford

Of course certain folks* do not want to learn all the lessons of Woodford so that it never happens again as that might threaten the grievance industry gravy train on which they ride.  One lesson is that the press only start calling out bad actors in financial services when it is too late. Before then, they promote the bad actors for the mainstream media are bad actors themselves.  The next Neil Woodford, as Lucian myself and others have noted for a while, is Cathie Wood of ARK whose funds share a lot of the failings that caused Woodford to blow up and whose arrogance matches that of the disgraced Neil. But for years the deadwood press blew smoke up Cathie’s posterior just as the FT and others blew off Neil.

ADVFN “strategic review” and formal sale process – whatever

Now that it is cash generative, pro tem, ADVFN (AFN) reckons that its shares are undervalued. Of course Clem Chambers, the globe trotting boss of the websites group, has been saying this for years as the stock price tanked and I reckon that Cheryl Cole is missing out on a damn good time here in North Wales. We are all entitled to our opinions.

SHOCKING EXPOSE: Net Zero Infrastructure – the green virtue signallers and the dodgy offshore cash: it gets much worse ( the HK trial dossier)

So who is behind the offshore (Belize) based tax dodgers at 360HK Limited which took part in the 3p per share IPO fund raise of Net Zero Infrastructure (NZI) on the Sub Standard List but has been dumping its shares into the pump ever since? It is a simple question but the company’s response will shock you? Or maybe with a patsy career politician Tory Baron and mate of Boris on board it will not.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Brian Basham demands a retraction

The Fleet Street Legend is up in arms about what he terms a foul smear on him HERE but, as I explain, the old champagne socialist is trying to pull the wool over our eyes with his mockney dining habits. At least the budget means that the champagne for Brian and his comrades will be cheaper but the Budget really is a shower. I explain why. Then it is onto Bluebird Merchant Ventures (BMV), Red Rock Resources (RRR) where it looks ever bleaker for my pal Andrew Bell and finally why the Redcentric (RCN) valuation is bonkers.

Vast Resources: The Oxymorons at AIM Regulation vs Fleet Street Legend Brian Basham (again)

Clearly Vast Resources (VAST) has misled investors of many years allowing the AIM fat cats who run this company to live the lifestyle at the expense of others. I flagged up one such shocker HERE. Fleet Street legend Brian Basham has tried to get the woke dullards at the FCA and the Oxymorons at AIM Regulation to do something but neither seem to care.  His latest exchange of emails has fallen into my hands.

Vast Resources should sue Tom Winnifrith for defamation says a Fleet Street legend

So says Fleet Street legend Brian Basham. Given that Brian has accused Vast’s (VAST) board of malfeasance and repeatedly called on the useless regulators to act against the company I doubt he has its best interest at heart. This is one case I would love to fight so bring it on Vast: see you Bitchez in Court! So what is Brian’s point?

Ex Vast Resources director Brian Basham names paid BB ramper in damning email to FCA

Fleet Street Legend Brian Basham was once a director of Vast Resources (VAST) but resigned in disgust at what he saw as blatant corporate malfeasance. He has been urging the Oxymorons at AIM Regulation and the woke dullards at the FCA to act, so far, without success. His latest missive to the FCA has fallen into the hands of Winnileaks and makes accusations that surely demand a response. It is shocking and it is below.

BREAKING: Former Vast Resources director Brian Basham accuses AIM and the LSE of obfuscation and deception in not tackling clear abuse

Fleet Street legend Brian Basham is at war with Marcus Stuttard, his team of Oxymorons at AIM Regulation and the London Stock Exchange over its refusal to tackle what he sees as industrial scale abuse of market rules and shareholders’ funds at Vast Resources (VAST) where he was once a director. His correspondence with the hapless Stuttard, the self-styled Sheriff of AIM, began on April 20:

Vast Resources – wants shareholder approval for more value destruction: vote NO at GM, let's end the gravy train now!

In 2008, shares in Vast Resources (VAST) traded at 24.6p. Today they trade at 0.082p. In other words, those running this company have, while trousering multi-millions of pounds in fees, managed to destroy 99.67% of shareholder value. While many companies do badly for shareholders, the trick here is to keep the company going so more fees can be extracted as part of an ongoing shareholder screw. Now the board wants shareholder permission for more of the same. I urge shareholders to say NO!

Fleet Street Legend and serial NED Brian Basham writes to AIM boss Marcus Stuttard re Vast Resources & the AIM sewer in general with a novel suggestion

Brian Basham has been a legend of journalism and PR for more than fifty years. He moves in the highest circles of the Labour Party, is a serial AIM NED and exposer of corruption, notably the HBOS Reading scandal, and is a man not to be ignored. He has written a letter to AIM Regulation boss, the fake Sheriff of AIM, Mr Marcus Stuttard which I publish in full below as it makes very strong allegations.

Winnileaks special: Vast Resources: Ex Director Brian Basham accuses Fatty Cornish of signing off on untrue statements

Oh dear, oh dear, London’s worst Nomad, Roland “Fatty” Cornish really does have a lot on his plate this morning.

The Biggest Clown on AIM: Roland Fatty Cornish warns Brian Basham who quit last week that ADVFN might now have to sack him

It may well be that London’s worst Nomad, the Cambridge educated gourmand, Roland “Fatty” Cornish has, in between meals, invented a time machine. Or perhaps he is just not very bright but that the tutors at Pembroke College thought he was a jolly good fellow who had been to the right school and that the College VIII needed a bit of ballast in the middle?

A Two VITAL questions Letter to Amber Rudd MP about the stolen £65,000 & London & Capital Finance

The scandal about the £240 million London & Capital Finance ponzi, which we have done so much to expose here, grows by the day. The real scandal is that it is just the tip of the mini-bond iceberg and those politicians such as Nicky Morgan on the LCF case should now, as a matter of urgency, be looking at other schemes that are still taking in money such as the West Ham promoted one we exposed HERE.  But back to LCF and Amber Rudd.

Tom Winnifith Bearcast - Will the Lombard crew be prosecuted for fraud & I'd rather not write in ignorance like Cynical Bear

It is a day off from training, after yesterday's ten mile walk. My 75 year old coach, Brian Basham, says I must rest my muscles. I restart again tomorrow but how about you donate a tenner to a great cause and sponsor me HERE? Meanwhile i discuss Cynical Bear's latest piece written in ignorance on Big Sofa (BST). He might be right and I may be wrong. So far he has called it right. But what we do know is that he is guessing and writing in ignorance, I'd rather not do that. Then I look at fund managers making pathetic excuses for their own failure over Persimmon (PSN). Finally after today's shocking Lombard (LRM) expose HERE I ask will the authorities finally hold individuals to account to show they really want to stamp out fraud.
