Between Boxing Day and January 3 all of our writers will be serving up their share tips of the year for 2022 – and now a new occassional contributor has stepped up to the plate so that will be 24 tips. Twenty third in our series is a BUY from Darren Atwater. Over to our man in the socialist sink hole that is Canada who has taken time out from striking in protest at the oppression of vegan members of the LGBTQ+ Innuit community to serve up this…
Every day until New Year’s Day. we’ll publish a picture taken from the window of a ShareProphets reader. Today, this guy came and visited my mum and dad’s house while was sitting in front of the fireplace. I had not met him before but by the tracks in the snow, he’s come by every night.
Self-styled “leading provider of instant communication mobile solutions to the enterprise market” Mobile Tornado Group (MBT) has announced it has received notice from its customer in Canada that the customer will not be renewing its contract but it “remains in discussions with the customer about the possibility of extending or amending the contract”. So what of a current response, to below a 2p share price, £7.5 million market cap, 20% lower?…
As with most junior miners, this one told us little of note in its interims today. But yesterday, Standard-Listed Panther Metals (PALM) announced the commencement of drilling at its Dotted Lake property in Ontario, Canada. The campaign with the drill-bit is to be short, with just a single hole planned, but the plan is for a 400m hole to be drilled directly below a historical trench previously excavated in 2010 which threw up some promising samples. Of course, at this stage it is a jam-tomorrow prospect but the drill bit might just prove it is a little more than that and we should find out fairly soon.
We are told that company directors need incentives – you have to pay for quality! Often this involves handing out share options “to align directors’ interests with those of shareholders” but often they are anything but. Often, the options are free and thus offer directors a one-way bet with no upfront cost (or risk) involved. As a general thing I dislike options – they dilute me as a shareholder and directors are well paid enough anyway – but they are a fact of life. However, options packages can be structured in such a way as to leave plenty in it for shareholders and this morning’s announcement from standard-listed Gold explorer Canada and Australia Panther Metals (PALM) seems to tick all the right boxes.
I3 Energy (I3E) has been a great example of why past failure doesn’t necessarily point to a continuation of that in the future – in the same way that past success doesn’t mean that a company or management team will manage the same again.
Hello, Share Herders. It’s pretty sultry around here at the moment. Thanks to climate change we may be in for a long hot summer. Not just here, but all over the world. In Canada and the USA, folks are being carted off to hospital as they struggle with record temperatures of 125 degrees. All this heat makes water the most precious commodity on the planet. Which brings me back to an old favourite; Water Intelligence (WATR).
My second buy tip for 2021, a speculative play on Standard-listed Panther Metals (PALM) has had a good fortnight as first a series of TR-1s showed some buying by larger holders including CEO Darren Hazelwood and then on Thursday a new Gold target was announced at the Merolia project in Western Australia, following an auger drill geochemistry programme.
Russell Starr is President and CEO of Trillium Gold so is talking his own book. But he talks a lot of sense. He explains how we are in the stealthiest gold bull market because most investors are overlooking it. This lack of interest has created enormous opportunities for investors. Inflation is likely to drive generalist investors back. Just consider housing prices and compare them with the official CPI numbers. The value of everything is being destroyed, and investors will soon realize that they should put money into gold.
If Clem Chambers manages to keep his job as boss of ADVFN (AFN) as Israeli brainbox Yair Tauman plans a boardroom clean out, it will only be because AIM dog Online Blockchain (OBC) owns 18% of ADVFN. And who runs Online? Er…Clem Chambers. Today, Online, which celebrates its 25th birthday next week having racked up more than £5.5 million in losses and has less chance of making a profit than I have of shagging Cheryl Cole, for this week at least, has news. Wait for it…
Having been heading down towards 2p a couple of weeks ago, shares in Power Metal Resources (POW) are higher following recent news flow. Is there more to come? You bet!
Standard-listed Gold explorer Panther Metals (PALM), under the oversight of Ariana Resources’ (AAU) CEO Kerim Sener in the position of Chairman, has announced that the Australian listing of its Aussie assets has moved a step closer with the completion of a pre-IPO funding round. This is good news – especially if one considers the implied valuation.
Panther Metals (PALM) has announced its calendar year 2020 results including emphasising that it has “developed the business to a point at which the portfolio may be rapidly commercialised”. Whatever you say Mr Promoter, what does that actually mean?…
Sub-Standard-listed Gold explorer Panther Metals (PALM) has released its FY20 results today. The numbers are largely irrelevant (losses) but the progress has been impressive for a company being run essentially on a shoe-string.
Oh dear, oh dear. It never rains but it pours for loathsome Neill Ricketts, the boss of grossly overvalued AIM promote Versarien (VRS). Now realising that his attempts to gag a Bulletin Board critic will end in a humiliating climbdown, his week just got even worse news with developments in Eire. You will remember how Canada has moved to ban graphene enhanced face nappies?
I may have given the impression that Canada was a semi-socialist woke hell hole run by the biggest poltroon on this planet where within a few years the economy will be such a trainwreck that folks like Darren Atwater will be forced to eat their cats. If so, I’d like to apologise, for Canada is a progressive paradise run by a visionary statesman, Mr Justin Trudeau, who wears his Eid socks to the Pride parade, or vice versa (I forgot); a chap who is eerily reminiscent of FDR or Churchill. Where this dynamic and free nation leads, the rest of the world surely will follow which is bad news for loathsome promoter Neill Ricketts and Versarien (VRS).
Our esteemed IT genius Darren says that there are so many pictures of my garden in badgerland Wales, the latest going up last night, and that my bleatings about snow stopping play are so pathetic that we should post a picture of his garden in the socialist paradise of Canada this morning. Okay.
Standard-listed Australian Canadian gold explorer Panther Metals (PALM) – chaired by Kerim Sener of AIM-listed Ariana Resources (AAU) – has announced another small fundraise, this time £300,000 worth of new shares at 10p a pop to give the company funding “well into 2021” as it progresses its portfolio of gold assets.
We recommended shares in Panther Metals (PALM) in July, taking a 55% bid to offer gain just a week later at a 13.2p bid price. That proved well-timed as the shares have since slipped back. However, overall, junior gold excitement has even strengthened since then and, in this environment, there look the potential catalysts to spark the shares to 15p+…
There are many reasons to dismiss Standard-listed Panther Metals (PALM). For a start, having decided to depart the Nex (now Aquis) lobster-pot, it opted for the somewhat tainted waters of the Standard List, rather than a full listing (which, to be fair, at the time would have been a bit of a joke as its market cap would have been very small). And its Broker is that bastion of the bottom end of AIM, Peterhouse Corporate Finance. My immediate reaction is already to wave a red flag over this investment. But there are some attractions – enough to warrant a small spot in the cellar of the Montana Log-Cabin?
The level of trust that you have in the management of a company can often play a big part in your willingness to invest.
I had been wondering when further news would come from i3 Energy (I3E) and these week two significant RNSs dropped on the same morning, which ultimately led to shares being suspended for the foreseeable future.
OptiBiotix Health (OPTI) has announced “a non-exclusive license agreement for its SlimBiome® trademark with Smart For Life, Inc. and related launch of cookies containing OptiBiotix's SlimBiome® proprietary weight management technology in the USA and Canada”...
We're inviting you to send pictures in of what you see out of your window and/or of your new workspace. Just email them to email@example.com . Today, we're looking at the view of Darren in Canada.
As usual the bulletin boards seem to be flooded with people saying what a great deal I3 Energy (I3E) has just secured, having announced today that it had acquired Toscana Energy Income Corporation (TEIC).
Last week we noted a licencing agreement for LPLDL, of OptiBiotix Health (OPTI), was clearly positive with the potential then significantly added to but that Uruguay itself is clearly not the largest of markets. The latter is not the case for the United States and Canada!…
Estate agency business which argues it “combines highly experienced and professional Local Property Experts and innovative technology”, Purplebricks (PURP) has announced results for its half-year ended 31st October 2019 – on election day. Hmmm…
Cabot Energy (CAB) suddenly seems to have become very popular for such a small AIM oil company, and given the recent news on a forthcoming discounted fundraise, I’m surprised that people are paying a huge premium to that.
A couple of days after Greene King (GNK) got scooped up by a Hong Kong billionaire, and on the day that Cobham (COB) announced the scheme particulars for its mooted takeover by a US peer, I read that plumbing and bathrooms kit company Ferguson (FERG) is thinking about switching to a US market listing. So woe betide the future of the UK market? In my opinion not at all...but you just have to face facts…
I decided to spare everyone my annual paen to Canada, as it is Canada's National Holiday tomorrow, and stay within ShareProphet's wheelhouse. This chart, from VisualCapitalist.com shows the conversion of the worlds largest companies from providing a wide-range of goods and services in 1999 to being tech (and Johnson + Johnson) in 2019.
Shares in “secure payments provider” PCI-PAL (PCIP) are currently more than 5% higher today, above 20p, on the back of an announcement; “PCI Pal Extends Global Cloud Beyond UK & US”…
Yesterday, David Scott wrote ‘The Tax System Explained in Beer’, a well-known parable about the tax system if it was 10 guys drinking in a pub. He missed the point.
I have got more chance of shagging Cheryl Cole than Rob Terry has of achieving a £1 billion flotation of his latest fraud but let us humour the old criminal and examine his plans for OS3 Digital Limited, formerly Knob Park Estate.
The Canadian economy and housing market is tanking, in part thanks to the crackpot socialist policies of its preposterous PM Justin Trudeau. Dope is now legal thanks to the only PM in the world who makes Theresa May look half competent but if you lived in Canada you’d need to be on drugs. What better place & time to spunk £45 million on buying a cash guzzling estate agency? Step forward Purplebricks (PURP) keen to distract us all from what will be Godawful full year numbers announced later this week.
Lithium has been all the rage amongst AIM investors over the past few years, but the reality is that many of the projects which people have been getting excited about will fail to ever actually produce anything.
Hello Share Squirters. As I get older, I become more fearful about my health. Apart from a minor problem with the old prostate, I am not yet troubled by illness. But I think disaster may be around the corner, especially if I do not watch my diet and take preventative steps to slow down wearing out. So it would only be fair to consider buying shares in a company which fulfils those needs.
Hello Share Gobblers. My relationship with RSA Insurance Group (RSA) goes back to the long-gone days when it was Royal Insurance. And it has generally not been a happy one.
I have flagged up many times before that the Hubio (formerly known as the fraud Himex) and Ingenie operations in Canada faced serious issues because they had simply failed to deliver product as promised to major customers such as Aviva. Now it is out in the open with writs flying both ways. Oh dear...this is not going to end well for Watchstone (WTG), the legacy of fraudster Rob Terry strikes again.
I end with a couple more questions for Darren Atwater to see if the pizza Hard Man is going to get deported back to Canada. I start with a few words on City of London (see HERE) and African Potash (see HERE) before moving on to ECR Minerals (ECR), Harvest Minerals (HMI) and in some detail uber-dog with fleas Servision (SEV). Tomorrow my Guardian reading sisters arrive. Woe is me.
The pizza hardman took a test to see if he can stay in the UK and avoid deportation to the socialist hell hole that is Canada. I give you one of the questions whuch had me stumped since in part it depends on whether you live in the hard working South or the Northern welfare safaris. Then I answer a question on forward selling and another listener question on whether Sirius Minerals (SXX) is cheap. Then it is onto Harvest Minerals, (HMI), Iofina (IOF), Alba (ALBA) and the Jim Mellon joke that is SalvaRx (SALV) which I have covered in full HERE. Finally I am working on exposing an AIM listed company which has been engaging in industrial scale bribery. I hope to run the story tomorrow. Can you guess the company? Suggestions in the comments section below. Ho Ho Ho.
Oh dear, oh dear, oh dear., if my father had not drunk it all, it would be another ouzo moment for the Sheriff of AIM with news that Ingenie Canada is no more. We have been warning for ages that the Toronto based frauds of Rob Terry were falling apart but Watchstone Group (WTG), the rebranded Quindell has been in denial. There you go.
Hello Share Plasterers. Before the Brexit result, I opined that shares would topple, but then make a quick recovery. I didn’t realise then how the bounce back would be much more than a recovery. Shares reached an 11 month high. And yet the BBC continue to broadcast doom and gloom comments that the British economy is now in a perilous situation. The healthy Footsie belies that sort of talk.
Hello Share Changers. What gave me the arrogance to say that the oil price would rally quite nicely this year was experience. Though I am no longer an energetic young trader, I have been plying our golden game since I first dated Bodicea. So I know that when the price of a commodity falls, it always bounces back. Always. So the recovery of oil was never the world’s greatest prediction.
Each day until New Year's Day, we a showing a photo taken through the window of a ShareProphets reader. We started in the socialist la la land of Canada (where pizza hardman Darren Atwater is with his parents) Today's snap is by James Quinn of Dittisham.
Unfortunately, Canada lost at the rugby yesterday and thus everything this morning seems dull and lifeless but we persevere. As they lost to Ireland, speaking about it to Tom can only be a lesson in humiliation. But at least Tom will not sack me as he threatened to do should Ireland lose.
As foreshadowed here last month, imposingly-named Galantas Gold Corporation (GAL) is assembling finance for its Cavancaw underground gold project near Omagh in County Tyrone, Northern Ireland, and has raised an equity component through a C$2.4 million (£1.2 million) placing of ‘units’ at the equivalent of 6p, 80% of them taken up by celebrated Canadian mining tycoon Ross Beaty. The AIM-quoted company, steered by entrepreneurial chief executive officer and 25% shareholder Roland Phelps, has issued shares equivalent to a 14.9% stake to Beaty, chairman of Pan American Silver and Altera Power Corporation and prime mover in several other resource ventures, to help fund underground mining at Cavancaw.
Quindell (QPP) has announced what it believes to be a major deal. Oddly certain Bulletin board morons who have in the past been leaked confidential lawyer’s letters by Quenron have been pre-announcing this for days making a mockery of AIM rules re the release of supposedly price sensitive information. But that is the least of Quindell’s crimes.
Antinomy, a versatile metal used in fire retardant materials, microelectronics, batteries and bullets, may not be looking too glamourous these days. It has fallen from one-time peaks of around $17,000 (£10,200) a tonne to below $10,000, but Emin Eyi, managing director of AIM-quoted TriStar Resources (TSTR) insists its hour will come. Tri-Star, with antimony deposits in Turkey and Canada, similarly has few outside fans in the stock market just now, having lost £534,000 (or £1.2 million at the operating level) in the first half of the year and seen its shares plunge from 2003’s float price of 27.75p to a barely visible 0.16p.
Northern Petroleum (NOP) is running out of money. A cash call is inevitable and it will happen before Christmas. Hence prostitute researcher Edison has “reinitiated coverage”. That means Northern has paid it a cheque to write bullshit so that private investors are suckered into buying the stock before institutions buy in at a whopping discount. The Edison note says it all. It is a classic.
