Oh dear, oh dear. This is truly awful, and explains why results normally released in late April, came out today - deadline day. Shield Therapeutics (STX) is in a mess, as I warned so often. Ouzo for me. Cabbage water for those who ignored my explicit warnings and instead, hurled abuse at me.
Supporters argued that incompliance with listing rules was of no great import and, as the FCA agreed, perhaps they were right. Hopefully, you did not fall for that and bailed, at 115p, on my warning last August. Shares in this Optiva-promoted dog’s breakfast are now 35p. It is not what is said today, but what isn't.
Nope, it doesn't ask Cheryl Cole for a hook-up; this petition is even more pointless. Hosted on Change.Org, it was launched by cash-strapped Cellular Goods (CBX), along with seven other “leading” companies.
The results were delayed by a month and that demonstrated that while good news travels fast bad news is oft tardy. Even the fraudsters at Supply@ME Capital (SYME) seem to be starting to be forced to admit that the game is almost up as calendar 2021 numbers are a real shit show. This company is technically bust.
As you know, I believe the saintly Vin Murria, the thinking man’s Cheryl Cole, can do almost nothing wrong. However, she is being a little naughty on the matter of M&C Saatchi (SAA). Let me explain.
As its old auditor walked, and the new one needed more time, today’s results for the 12 months to March are unaudited interims – the prelims will be for the 18 months to 30 September. But one cannot dodge the numbers: even Neill Ricketts is forced to ‘fess that Versarien (VRS) may soon run out of other folks’ cash. Anyone holding the shares is, thus, certifiably insane.
After eleven weeks as the latest CEO of Powerhouse Energy (PHE) Paul Drennan-Durose felt the need to reassure the morons owning this stock. And he took as his inspiration the great Ronan Keating who, as I am sure you know, sang a song about the relationship between a penny stock promoter and his gullible investors.
First thing yesterday morning shares in Love Hemp (LIFE) the pot play backed by boxer Anthony Joshua saw its shares suspended. At 4.35 PM it fessed to the grisly truth: it had lied about a fund raise announced on 8 February. But then it carried on lying. No wonder, adviser Peterhouse has resigned.
A day after its lie-infested results announcement, Wildcat Petroleum (WCAT) has yet to put out a correction. Instead, we are treated to its quarterly newsletter, which might as well be an April Fool, or written from Alice’s Wonderland but instead is authored by “Mr T.C., the virtual representative of Wildcat Petroleum in these times of social distancing & restricted travel”. Jeepers.
As explained HERE, sub scale investor in crap companies Tern (TERN) needs to get a placing away by April Fool’s day or it is in deep merde. Hence a desperate attempt to ramp the shares ahead of a visit to the bucket shops for the discounted bailout. Even Tern could not bring itself to make today’s release an RNS. It is an RNS Reach meaning that it is financially immaterial. You will be amazed just how immaterial it is. As such this is a major red flag that a discounted placing is imminent so if you are buying shares in the market today you better lube up.
One year and one month after Wildcat Petroleum (WCAT) lied about having raised £600,000 and took its place among the worthless joke companies on the Standard List, its long promised RTO of an E&P asset is still nowhere to be seen. However, nearly all of the money which did come in after spiv investors flipped the shares they had been issued without paying for, has now been spunked. Cash is now well under £200,000 so serious spoofing is needed.
Bulls of Union Jack Oil (UJO), the company that uses shareholder cash to troll its own shareholders, advisers and journalists, have taken some comfort from the latest desktop study of West Newton. I did a desktop study of Cheryl Cole last night and that proves nothing either. It is all hot air. Only drilling proves anything and on that count Union Jack is a serial failure. But there is another matter: the cashburn.
I start by discussing Eurasia Mining (EUA), its CPR on its nickel assets and Range Resources (RRL) and a similar exercise undertaken by Pirate Pete Landau. Then I look at Omega Diagnostics (ODX), at the piece I penned earlier inspired by Luke Johnson, HERE, and finally at Sensyne (SENS) and what happens next.
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.
It was two years and three placings ago that Eurasia Mining (EUA) first predicted on social media that it was on the point of paying a dividend. Now, three and a bit months after a potential bidder completed its due diligence on a bid for nearly all its assets there has been no offer, as yet, so Eurasia needs another ruse to keep its moronic shareholders happy.
An update today from Simec Atlantis Energy (SEA) showed the sort of unbridled and wholly unjustifiable optimism one would associate with a Norwich City supporter discussing who his team would like to draw in next year’s Champion’s League or my own hopes of hooking up with Britain’s favourite chanteuse, Ms Cheryl Cole. Only at the end of its statement does it mention the problem that makes it uninvestable.
Iconic (ICON) shares have been suspended since 7 June 2021 due to the appointment of joint administrators by Toxic Dave Sefton on 4 June 2021 via his company Arch Capital Partners LLP which purchased debts and claims from Shard Capital.
How many folks have tested for this variant in the UK or died from it in the country where it is most prevalant – not Botswana? Or even been hospitalised by it in the epicentre? The answer is the same number of times that I have shagged Cheryl Cole this week. But the market is tumbling. I discuss the real data behind this variant, the wild scaremongering and whether this is a buying opportunity in the world of shares? I referred to a bird from Edinburgh University who is the worst of the experts on forecasting HERE and to data from three continguous US states HERE, from Wales and England HERE and from central European countries centred on Hungary HERE.
The curse of former Tory MP, Tony Baldry of 3DM infamy just will not go away. When oily Tony joins a company, he will make a packet and the shares will tank. That is one of my golden rules of investing and slimy Tony’s record in this respect is unblemished. So to the latest warning from Westminster (WSG), a turd which Tony tries, and fails, to polish.
This is the company that lied in its very first RNS on December 30 2020, claiming to have raised £600,000 for its IPO when, in fact the money did not arrive until January when “investors” had been able to flip their shares to raise the cash for the placement. Between then and now it had boasted of utterly spurious crypto and NFT deals then, one suspects under FCA pressure, reverted to its prospectus gameplan of trying to do an RTO in oil. But now another lie.
When I read Purplebricks (PURP) CEO Vic Darvey prattling on about a solid platform to achieve longer term targets my mind immediately switches to thoughts of Cheryl Cole. I feel that I too offer an increasingly solid platform (boom boom) and I have my targets too. Whatever … today Vic served up a ghastly profits warning and shares in Purplebricks (PURP) are in freefall. You cannot say that this site has not warned you all often enough. So what’s the story morning glory?
I set out below four reasons why Tintra’s (TNT) interim financial statements are not compliant with the requirements of IAS 34 for interim financial statements and why new interims are required. Do I expect Nomad Allenby or the Oxymorons at AIM Regulation to do anything about black and white breaches of the rules? No. My faith in regulators or City advisors is at rock bottom. But just for the record:
The Oxymorons at AIM Regulation, led by the hapless poltroon Mr. Marcus Stuttard, the bogus Sheriff of AIM, like to claim that they have created the world’s most successful growth market. But the events of the past two years at Eurasia Mining (EUA) have shown that those who want to run rings around Marcus and the clowns who work for him don’t have to try too hard. I have written to Marcus and his colleagues about the farce at Eurasia and the supposed bid talks. Enough is enough. Will AIM Regulation force a statement? The answer to that one may involve myself and Ms Cheryl Cole.
After the West Newton debacle Reabold Resources (RBD) is Mark Knopfler, that is to say it is in Dire Straits. Today it serves up news of a US deal which it headlines “Equity Exchange with Daybreak Oil and Gas – Creation of Enhanced California E&P Company.” This is surely a spoof. It is taking the piss. This is utterly misleading.
Today is not only Joshua’s Birthday but also 100 days to Christmas and also Dydd Owain Glyndwr Hapus!. So I am busy cake making. Maybe a picture later after I burn my own house down in honour of the last Welsh Prince of Wales. In the podcast I discuss naughty corporate brokers, Optibiotix (OPTI) and Novacyt (NCYT)
The FCA needs urgently to take a look at the paid for research market. It seems anybody can enter and then can charge a fat fee for publishing whatever ramptastic shite they like. On Tuesday I cited the utter fiction produced by Proactive Investors on the Supply@ME Capital (SYME) fraud. Today I bring you one reason Eurasia Mining (EUA) shares roofed it yesterday, a report from ACF Equity Research, a company that cant publish its own accounts so why on earth should it be able to analyse those of anyone else?
There is so much in today’s absolutely appalling trading statement from the fraud that is Supply@ME Capital (SYME) that I need to cover it in three parts. I kicked off with how Supply deceived the woke dullards at the FCA and investors with bogus revenues. Then there was the shocking misleading Proactive report now exposed as pure fiction. Now we turn to the actual trading…
I know that some of you are sceptical about my chances of getting lucky with Britain’s leading chanteuse but it seems that many of you think that my chances are improving. I refer you to the poll I ran last night on when Chill Brands (CHLL), formerly the fraud known as Zoetic (ZOE) would finally publish its results. The top answer…
Chill Brands (CHLL), the fraud formerly known as Zoetic (ZOE), blames covid for delaying its results which, in May, it said would be out in July until August. We all know the reason is its battle to persuade the auditors that it has enough cash to survive for 12 months. Which it does not. Anyhow, we are now almost at the end of August and good news travels fast but bad news is always delayed so where are the results which are bound to be truly absymal? When do you think Chill will sneak out the bad news?
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?
Back in April Vast Resources (VAST) managed to persuade shareholdcers to approve a 100-1 share consolidation by telling them a stack of blatant lies, lies which have been shown up with news today of yet another discounted placing.
The Bulletin Board cult followers of the dog Versarien (VRS) never look under the bonnet at hidden horrors. That is why critics such as Ian Westbrook are so useful. Ian has now raised more than 70% of the cash needed to make loathsome stock hustler Neill Ricketts sweat with a court hearing. He has six days to raise the rest. Please donate, even if it is just a tenner, HERE. If the full £20,000 is not raised you get your cash back. Please give now. So what is this little horror I have stumbled across?
That is because there really is no trading. But the update does contain an explicit warning that the cash is going up in smoke fast. This is a shocker. Some turds can be polished but PR man Graham Herring at IFC will not have bothered with this one. It is just a rough and ready turd au natural. And that makes the valuation a joke. BTW Graham: I wonder why the shares have fallen so sharply in the couple of days ahead of this awful update? It is a coincidence I am sure.
If the FCA was not staffed by such useless mothers, it would have forced Wildcat Petroleum (WCAT) to issue a brand new prospectus just 6 weeks after its December 30 2020 listing as it announced a whole new business strategy. But the FCA is not fit for purpose so it will, I expect, ignore black and white evidence that the very first RNS issued by Wildcat was a whopper of a porky. On the (sub) Standard List who cares?
The headline results of Supply@ME Capital (SYME) were, as I predicted, piss poor: revenue was a mere £1,147,000 and the loss for the year was £2,964,000. The balance sheet shows net liabilities of £452,000 and net current liabilities of £1,332,000.
It looks as if Richard “nobody likes me and I don’t care” Jennings had a narrow escape not merging his Align Research company with Vox Markets as its accounts are now out and they are shockingly bad. But when 50% of the board is comprised of Justin “the Clown” Waite, is it any great surprise?
The fraud Supply@ME Capital (SYME) first stated that it would announce the work of fiction that is its calendar 2020 results in April. But on April 23, that became May. On May 26, that became next week (i.e. this week). And today it is er…next week again. As they say, good news travels fast…
The fraud Supply@ME Capital (SYME) says that its calendar 2020 results will be out next week. Let’s hope auditor Crowe UK has boned up on IFRS or it could be in the merde with the FRC. And Supply has given more details of its proposed acquisition of TradeFlow Capital as it has now moved from an MOU to signing a share purchase agreement. Sadly, the latter is all smoke and mirrors.
Red Rock Resources (RRR) has now this month updated on investee companies Elephant Oil and Juno Minerals – which now look to offer some material further upside potential.
Another day and another merger occurs in US cannabis. This time it is Hexo which is to acquire 48North Cannabis Corp in an all share $50 million deal so what is the read-across for the fraud Zoetic (ZOE) and its valuation? Look away now bulls… it is dire.
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…
After years of executive greed and value destruction, Bahamas Petroleum (BPC) tried one last roll of the dice on April 23 with an open offer at just 0.35p but I wonder whether there are growing signs that this is failing?
Booted off what is now Aquis for lying to investors and then suspended on a Danish bourse before it closed, no exchange will now list US Oil & Gas (USOP) but still its laughable boss little Brian McDonnell battles on with ludicrous releases as he tries to part savers from their savings: “It’s the way I tell em” he smirks but folks who have lost almost everything in a company once ramped up to a £300 million valuation but which is worthless are not laughing.
Yesterday, I established that the revenues booked and boasted about by the fraud Supply@ME Capital (SYME) were fantasy. Not my thoughts about Cheryl Cole fantasy, but the stuff of real make believe. So if revenues do not really exist, how come Supply has not suffered a crash landing in tits up alley yet? Read on…
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!
I get regular e-mails every Friday with often rude, but always amusing jokes. But nothing is a bigger joke or more amusing than UK Oil and Gas (UKOG) year-end accounts. This year was no disappointment and really had me chuckling – perhaps the Chairman had Tom Winnifrith and myself in his sights while he tried to justify the total disaster?
I have covered the antics of Mr John Story – the largest shareholder in the Zoetic (ZOE) fraud – before, demonstrating here the lies he has told to investors. But now even Zoetic itself appears to question whether Mr Story can be believed.
The IPO of Nightcap (NGHT) was pushed back from pre Christmas to early January which means that in announcing results for the period 23rd September to December 31 2020, it reveals sod all of interest which allows boss Sarah Willingham to engage in fantasies about expanding her chain from 10 to 50 units. This disgrace of an IPO gets more tawdry by the day.
I have already dealt with the imminent demise of its sister company, One True View, where a sham £186 million bid evaporated and where the end is nigh. Now to Appbox Media, the first company set up by Polat Hassan as part of his City boiler room operation which has stolen £30m from naïve investors. The FCA was warned by me as long ago as November 2019 but natch has done nowt.
We live in times of sheer insanity. It is a rampers’ paradise and cometh the day cometh the four horsemen of the rampfest apocalypse. I bring you a tale of sheer insanity from the Aquis lobster pot market, formerly the NEX Exchange. It starts with what was once PGC Entertainment (PGCE), a serial uber dog which was eventually slung off the AIM casino. I should say that its boss is my pal Richard Poulden.
I start with the Mrs and George Orwell. Then with the podcast that went live today with me as the guest, not of Cheryl Cole or Princess Anne as was suggested, but of James Delingpole and it is – I think – very entertaining. Then to the final vindication of 2 big exposes from October 2019 HERE and HERE. These both show the failings of the FCA and I compare and contrast whistleblowing to the floor shitters with whistleblowing to the SEC which I did today re the fraud Zoetic International (ZOE).
Reader SB asks if there are any forecasts for MyHealthChecked (MHC). There are not. Not even from the UK’s leading healthcare analyst Mr Brokerman Dan Levi. However, the company does give indications of what sort of sales it might achieve in a corporate presentation video below. There is more and I am not sure what this means and think MyHealthChecked should clarify.
For years, AIM sewer listed Bahamas Petroleum (BPC) has spun the line that all it needed was a farm in partner to unlock massive potential for oil in the Bahamas. For years I have called out CEO Simon “Harry” Potter as a useless and grossly overpaid promoter who should be fired – here is a piece from 2015. And warned that this stock was just not investment grade - you can see a series of exposes and scoops HERE. Sadly, Potter was not fired in 2015 and today – with him having hauled out well over £5 million in compensation – since his 2011 appointment when the spoof started, the house of cards has collapsed. It will get worse.
We know from audited 2019 results released yesterday that as at this week, Supply@ME Capital (SYME) has still not signed one contract with a customer and has no cash with which to service any customers. Yes it has provided term sheets but that is not the same thing. I might well provide a term sheet to Cheryl Cole later today about a servicing proposition I have. But that, I am sad to say, would not be a binding contract! And without a contract or even a purchase order you simply, as a PLC, cannot book any revenues. Which brings us to today’s release of half calendar year 2020 results from the con that is Supply@ME Capital.
Twice in the past week, most stridently yesterday afternoon HERE, I have made it clear that Verditek (VDTK), the serial AIM sewer deceiver ramped by shamed tipster “old mother” Walters and chaired by Tory toff Lord Willetts, needed to come clean on yet another pre-placing deceit and its lack of revenues. I guess the Oxymorons at AIM Regulation were listening as this morning the company fessed up. It’s ouzo time for me!
With some folks having paid 8p+ for shares in Xtract Resources (XTR) late last week, today the company did a placing to the sewer-dwelling clients of Novum Securities at just 4.5p. The shares are now just 4.8p to sell. Boy those folks suckered in by the Colin Bird ramping must be hurting today. This is so familiar but I did warn you explicitly what the old scoundrel was up to.
Yesterday, I was offline from ShareProphets for most of the afternoon due to a snowstorm here in Canada that knocked out my Internet. Tom wanted to see some pictures, which you can see below. The third one is right in front of the house – that’s some guy who has drilled a hole and is ice fishing. At the time of the photo, he had not caught anything. Now, on to the most read articles.
Since both sides in this particular tussle speak only to folks of a similar bent, both will take enough from a statement that says nothing concrete to allow them to scream for joy inside their respective echo chambers. Both camps will be emboldened in their GroupThink. But should they? Here are a few hard numbers to consider…
If only because this is another opportunity to gaze at a photo of Britain’s most talented chanteuse, it is time for the result of the Cheryl Cole Rover’s Return caption contest yesterday. Some of you have minds like sewers and many of you followed a predictable theme in supplying captions for the photo below.
I am asked for where we are with Big Sofa (BST). As you may know, it delisted last April saying PLC costs were not worth it. It then raised £1 million at 3p a share in October so how is it doing? I hope that it is making its way towards profitability and a trade sale. Just as I hope that Cheryl Cole has something special for me for my birthday next week. But in both cases I think it is sensible to plan for the the outcome not being entirely as one might have wished. Anyhow Big Sofa has sent a missive to some of its shareholders, some folks being more equal than others. So for those of you plebs who did not receive an update on trading, here it is.
Gary Newman got much grief in times gone by for warning folks about this dog. Today, I imagine he will be enjoying extra ouzo with his fishcakes as the shares were suspended from AIM as the one month notice period of, now, former Nomad Strand Hanson came to a close. But what next?
Have I judged Oisin Fanning of San Leon (SLE) by a different standard to, say, Neill Ricketts of Versarien (VRS)? Sure. Would I not judge, for instance, Cheryl Cole by a different standard in the looks department than, say, Diane Abbott? Yes I would. And I bet Cheryl is also better at singing, counting and more or less everything else than Ms Abbott too. Management is key to it all in the world of investing as I discuss today.
We still have three days left in 2020, so Tom may pull out a spectacular Bearcast that disrupts this list. Barring that, these are the fifty Bearcasts that delighted and infuriated ShareProphets members the most. You free riders have no idea what you are missing out on
But the Bulletin Board Morons who have fallen in love with this con are delighted so that is the main thing – it will allow the insiders to dump more shares while getting the Sith Lord Zak Mir to tell everyone they are buying!
In my detailed coverage of the POS AIM Company Verditek (VDTK) I have shown how in every year since its IPO it has announced contracts, ramped the shares and then having raised funds in a bailout placing or two, the contracts disappear. Sometimes it ‘fesses up, sometimes there is no ‘fess, other times I have to run articles and sheeplishly, Tory Toff Lord Willetts and his chums are forced into an RNS. Well here we go again.
Little Brian is a comic genius. His company may have been booted off two markets junior to AIM for gargantuan regulatory breaches but USOP, once ramped to £500 million, struggles on raising money as a private company. And so it still issues releases to sucker in more investors. They are a scream. Little Brian has won the highly contested “ShareProphets CEO fantasist of the year” several times in the past few years and with a release today, he must be a very strong contender for 2020.
Much ramped DeepVerge (DVRG) has very kindly put the presentation it gave on December 1 to lucky clients of its corporate broker, the esteemed house of Turner Pope, on its website. Have you read it? I have rarely seen a more compelling sell case in my life. No wonder the shares are tanking. Off another 10% today to 23.5p; I am slashing my target price from 10p to 5p.
If you believe the statement issued today by Zenith Energy (ZEN) then I have a bridge in London I’d like to sell you. It simply defies belief that what Zenith says can possibly be true.
Well what is not to like? Having tried to find a buyer for this loss-making POS since February 19, the process has now been terminated and the adviser fired. But Audioboom (BOOM) would not wish you to think badly of it as a result.
Three weeks ago the share price of Manolete (MANO) slipped below 300p. Given that it was 515p when I published a major dossier on July 10 warning that the shares would more than halve, it was panic stations…
I have documented over many years what a rotten investment Scancell (SCLP) has been but its spoofing on its quest for a Covid vaccine is one of the biggest red flags fluttering. Today it plunged new depths of spoofery as it announced a collaboration with Cobra Biologics “for Cobra to manufacture Scancell’s COVID-19 vaccine.” Great, except that…
Notwithstanding a £4.2 million placing at 0.2p back in June, UK Oil & Gas (UKOG) is now running on vapours. The question is not if it will do another bailout placing but when? And “news”, I use the term in the loosest possible sense, today suggests that Lyin’ Steve Sanderson et al are preparing to pass the hat around, yet again, very soon. There are already 10.97 billion shares in issue but brace yourself for another tsunami of worthless confetti to be arriving shortly.
Of course there really is more chance of me shagging Cheryl Cole than of this happening. But let’s hope for it anyway. How many of the current wave of enthusiastic shareholders who piled into the grossly misleading announcements starting on September 10 understand that there could still be much more share dilution to come? There are three separate financing instruments under which Iconic (ICON) can be required to issue shares for and they are as follows:
When I, again, exposed the con Supply@ME Capital (SYME) the other day, its boss Alessandro Zamboni told one of his moronic shareholders that his lawyers had advised him not to sue me for libel as I was only seeking readers and, anyway, full year numbers would speak for themselves. But with the shares sliding and the company almost out of cash, today we have a trading statement which whiffs of panic and is pure bull. It also begs the question of insider dealing.
The spoof continues. Shares in Supply@ME Capital (SYME) a company drowning in more red flags than one sees on a May Day parade in the land of the free, that is Russia comrades, now trade at 0.74p after today’s spoof release valuing this crock at £242 million. Now to explain why today’s news is a 100% spoof and the claims made by the company are pure fiction…
London millionaire liberal elitist, our own in-house Euro Loon Jonathan Price, faces house, or should I say mansion, arrest within days. About bloody time. I joke with him on email but I am not sure he sees the funny side. After that digression I discuss Red Rock Resources (RRR) – do you believe Andrew Bell? – Amigo (AMGO), Sunrise Resources (SRES), Cobra Resources (COBR), and the very odd price movement at joke company Anglesey Mining (AYM). Cheryl Cole gets two mentions in this podcast
Standard listed Cobra Resources (COBR) is the sort of enterprise that gives Aussie stock promoters a bad name. It has two brokers to pump the stock and do placings as often as possible, the esteemed blue chip houses of Peterhouse and SI Capital. Lots of placings, lots of dilution, but lots of commission, coke and hookers all round. It also employs THREE firms of the calibre of LSE Share Talk to pump the stock to mug punters. But an RNS release of 17 August surely goes a step too far.
On Thursday, I published a letter, now confirmed as genuine, from the Government of the Republic of Congo saying that Zenith Energy (ZEN) had lost its sole asset, Tilapia on June 4, something it failed to disclose to investors as it secured more funding. Still, Zenith and its newly appointed adviser, Allenby Capital, have failed to address this. Instead, we have a statement on a Cheryl Cole type deal. Let me explain.
Even where the Government is testing like the blazes to cover its arse and con us into believing that its coronavirus response was sensible and proportionate, it is struggling to find cases. In the new 'hotspot' of Blackburn where there is mass testing, the cases are just 77 per 100,000. Of those found posititve, nearly all of them are asymptomatic so would not have known they had Covid had they not been tested. This testing is not saving any lives.
Following the shocking revelation that Tomco (TOM) had lied to investors it has pulled the £1.5 million placing at 0.4p announced on Wednesday leaving it running on fumes. In fact, I’ll wager you a line or two of finest Colombian marching powder, direct from the City’s grubbiest dealing floors, that it is technically insolvent. Yet its shares, returning from suspension, have rocketed ahead to 0.775p, a gain of c75%. The FCA should be hot footing it to the offices of broker Turner Pope without delay. I smell crime.
I start with a few words on the summer weather here in Wales. then it is on to Big Sofa (BST). Then onto a few words about Neill Ricketts, Versarien (VRS), Rolls Royce (RR.), me, Cheryl Cole and the company's latest promo video HERE. Finally, onto Wirecard a German Norfolk which tests the Roger Lawson thesis on how to deal with short sellers to destruction as it implodes.
Pity those who bought shares in Sound Energy (SOU) at well over 80p at peak ramp. Luckily for him, the chief ramper James “Dracula” Parsons sold most of his stock while urging others to buy, as the shares now trade at just 1.11p to sell, valuing this company at £12.5 million, which is far too high. By about £12.5 million in fact.
Sound Energy (SOU) limps on. Dracula is still a consultant as the company tries to sell its main asset to a bidder which has no money. Without such a disposal – and I am sure you can spot the flow in this “cunning plan” - the company will be unable to pay its debts as they fall due and will almost certainly go bust. So, what of another hound in Dracula’s kennels, Echo Energy (ECHO), which reported its results today a headline loss of $10 million is pretty good going.
Tom Winnifrith has written two articles recently about PowerHouse Energy (PHE), firstly noting how Zak Mir is promoting the stock and secondly how there are a bucket (shop) load of 0.5p warrants outstanding; separately Peter Brailey has noted the absurdity of the valuation as being "quadruple bonkers". But today I want to ask a more basic question: does its so called "technology" even work?
I am absolutely exhausted. Recording videos is pretty draining. You have to remember not to pick your nose and to be alert at all times and right now I am recording four or five a day plus bearcast. That is all for the ShareProphets Shares Conference where, I promise, you will be dazzled by the content so BOOK YOUR TICKET NOW HERE!!! In today's podcast I discuss Big Sofa (BST), Shell (RDSB), ValiRx (VAL), Catenae (CTEA) and James "Dracula" Parsons, Cheryl Cole and Ascent Resources (AST). Suffice to say only one of that trio excites me in any way.
With other folks cash, Neil Woodford was a big fan. The company has missed all its targets to date. Even now, having belatedly slashed costs, Xeros (XSG), the company founded to disrupt the world of washing machines, does not expect break even until Q2 2022. What could possibly go wrong? I reckon there is more chance of me shagging Cheryl Cole by Q2 2022 than of this company reaching breakeven by 2022 but we shall see. Anyhow if you are tempted, not by Cheryl – that is a given - but by Xeros here is your chance.
I am not sure how Nomad Strand Hanson managed to sign off on today’s misleading RNS from Nostra Terra (NTOG) but maybe we have all just come to expect that Matt Lofgran et al are just allowed to say whatever they wan t with no comeback. This is the AIM casino after all.
The Oxymorons at AIM Regulation and hapless Nomad Mark Brady at SPARK have yet to reply to my letter of Saturday about Bidstack (BIDS), the almost bankrupt company led by Lyin' James Draper which, I believe, (again) deceived investors last Friday. so I have penned a follow up missive. Surely the time has come to suspend the shares. The letter is below.
The only metric you need to know about Bidstack (BIDS) is how much cash it has left. Based on the likely run rate at the year end, on the fact that it has not laid off staff but has hired it is almost certain that by the end of April the number will be nothing at all and that, barring a bailout placing, it will be crash landing in Tits Up Alley. A trading statement today more or less confirmed that in what it did NOT say. Naturally CEO Lyin’ James Draper tries to spoof gullible investors.
Okay most listed oil stocks are heading for zero. You don’t need the brains of Cheryl Cole, sorry I meant Lloyd George, to realise that ceteris paribus most of the sector is fecked. But surely, Sound Energy (SOU), once valued at c£800 million, is toast and the last rites will be read soon.
Insolvent AIM dog G3 Exploration (G3E) promised us, on February 7 that it would have news for us on 13 March. The news came today and it is not was NOT said that is the killer. Good news travels fast, bad news is delayed. The shares have crashed 40% to 10p mid but a 20% spread tells you this is uninvestable. The target - for a company I first exposed with the bloody dossier at 260p - remains 0p.
I covered technically insolvent Conroy Gold and Natural Resources’ (CGNR) interims and came to the obvious conclusion that it was technically insolvent. Yesterday its sister company (with largely the same management), AIM-listed Karelian Diamonds (KDR) followed with its own half-year numbers and guess what. But the statements are just unutterable tripe which, I suggest, are intended to mislead.
Nope, this is nothing to do with Cheryl Cole. Instead the chart below is intended to show how obsessed I am with the Versarien (VRS) car crash. The chart was published before today's shock warning and aims to show that I am obsessed or desperate and thus to be ignored. I fear those who have ignored me are rather poorer as a result. But fear not morons, when you have lost all your money and Versarien has been booted off AIM, a then 100% vindicated Sheriff will cease coverage... meanwhile I bet Neill Rocketts is glad he sold so many shares even if he was not 100% honest about the reason!
We know that Bobbie signed off on most of the untrue and fraudulent releases issues by Quindell (QPP) so perhaps he will sign off on anything? But the February 4 2019 RNS from Versarien (VRS)? Really?
The PR person for Plutus Powergen (PPG) is the Cheryl Cole of her world, but even more classy. But not even her charms can save her client from more comment from myself, notwithstanding appeals from head honcho James Longley that I remove prior, harsh but accurate comment HERE.
I assumed, as it turns out correctly, that the GM held today to approve Anglo African’s (AAOG) duff deal to sell 80% of its stake in the Tilapia field to fellow AIM dog Zenith (ZEN) would go Anglo’s way. But just to make sure the two companies served up a massive spoof today … the RNS is total crap.
I start and end the podcast defending the editorial style and approach of this website, based as it is on free speech and on nailing crooks, from two seperate attacks. In between I enter the raging Hurricane Energy (HUR( battle with my own, balanced and detailed, thoughts and comment en passant on the big news today: Malcolm Stacey's severe case of #TrumpDerangementSyndrome and the real shocker, the terrible news about Cheryl Cole.
Any time someone registered via this website takes part in a Primary Bid offering we earn a few quid and so for that reason I urge you ALL to sign up HERE as, now and again, Primary Bid has some good offers. Today’s offering to raise cash at 0.1p comes from Premier African Minerals (PREM) is not such an offer. In fact...
I reply to a listener who blames yesterday's lack of bearcast on my thoughts shifting away from Ms Cole to this young olive harvester - such a suggestion is almost defamatory. Then it is on to Dignity (DTY), St James Place (STJ) and - in some detail - the very naughty boys at Iconic (ICON), led by toxic Dave Sefton and why the two NEDS walked today.
Or maybe I am just misreading the data?
It is quite clear that regulators in this white collar crime infested land are useless. Yesterday I flagged up a £12 million and increasing boiler room operation in the City of London that the authorities will do nothing about. So just for fun which of the following will happen first:
My pal, Liverpool’s top share blogger, Doc Holiday calls many shares correctly but his latest twitter call on Standard listed Chesterfield Resources (CHF), below, is bonkers. He is ‘avin’ a Turkish when he claims that the shares, now 3p-3.5p could be trading at 15-20p. Let me explain…
So there is a Plan B right? Well sort of. But it changes nothing at Sirius Minerals (SXX). It is still almost certainly a total wipeout for shareholders whatever the company says about an update on its “strategic review.”
For some reason, Britain’s most disgraced fund manager held this AIM dog in his Equity Income Fund though the chances of it paying a dividend made my chances of getting lucky with Cheryl Cole look like a nailed down sure fire certainty. Today there is another body blow, clinical failure, but the real issue, if you do the maths, is looming insolvency.
You think that Justin the Clown at Pox Markets and Proactive are there to help you? Think again. He who pays the piper...I reference Bidstack (BIDS) and Big Dish (DISH) in this part of the show. I discuss Dev Clever's (DEV) "news" today with reference to Cheryl Cole, look at the accounting mess at PureCircle (PURE) and have a few thoughts on the trading statement from Sosandar (SOS) where I am really not tempted to leap back in again.
As if those folks who do not mind that CEO James Draper lied to them on August 8 about H1 results do not need another reason to sell their shares in Bidstack, Draper has provided it by dumping stock himself. Smart move.
As you can see below, Joshua watched Panorama on Neil Woodford avidly. He liked seeing me but had a major gripe. I reflect on the show. I look at the bonkers boss of you cannot be Sirius Minerals (SXX) and at his company and then on to the latest "news" on Horse Hill from UK Oil & Gas (UKOG) and, yes, Britain's most talented chanteuse is relevant.
I should stress that the photo below was taken after our Welsh decorators had stripped what is the master bedroom but before they had decorated it and that I can look smarter as I hope you will see later today. Watch this space. In that light almost all entries to yesterday's contest which suggested that either the Welsh Hovel or myself need a lot of work were disallowed. You can see the abuse here. The winner is:
In today's podcast I discuss the ominous silence from Brady (BRY), dare to disagree with Chris "three brains" Bailey on SIG (SHI), look at Bidstack (BIDS) and consider the, incomplete, Q3 trading statement from Audioboom (BOOM), pondering when its next bailout placing will be.
NuOil & Gas (NUOG) has been a cornerstone of my crap quartet for some time and I read todays RNS with some delight. This company has caused me to write to the FCA / aim regulation more than any other company in recent years and the social media insults aimed in my direction from “long and strong” shareholders have been truly disgusting. I am sure the dilution to practical oblivion by James Parsons and Marco Furmagalli of Sound Energy (SOU) infamy is a richly deserved reward for those moron shareholders.
If the Quindell fraudster Rob Terry is, this morning, wondering who his roomie will be when he goes down, perhaps he may be able to discuss accounting fun and games with a member of staff from Goals Soccer Centres (GOAL) which has today fessed up to the scale of its problems as it admits its days on AIM are almost over.
The Sheriff of AIM is surely entitled to a celebratory breakfast ouzo at his hovel in North Wales? On Wednesday I flagged up a profits warning from the Krauts at Siltronic and suggested that IQE (IQE) was likely to follow. Less than 48 hours later the Cardiff dog duly barks. As a long term bear I have repeatedly warned silly sell side analysts, Thirsty Paul Scott and others that this company is a crock…once again I stand vindicated. And so to detail….it is grim.
Today's bearcast is a full report on the AGM of Neil Woodford's Woodford Patient Capital Trust (WPCT) which I'd score as a win for me against the great fund manager and his chairman Susan Searle. I did manage to get Cheryl Cole into the debate and I did ask Neil woodford to donate to rogue bloggers for Woodlarks, as you can do here,, but I also took the board to task on a number of other matters and managed to get Neil pretty riled. Happy days.
Please remember that i do occassionally lapse into Parody thus while the first few minutes of this podcast concern the nation's sweetheart and most talented chanteuse, my real concern is the scandal at Blue Jay Mining (BYAY) unearthed by today's RNS. I cover the role of shamed promoter Old Mother Michael Walters, disgraced broker John Meyer of SP Angel of the Mysquar (MYSQ) fraud shame and of course the company itself. There should be a full investigation and heads need to roll after almost two and a half years of the market being misled. If you enjoyed this podcast please support the EIGHT rogue bloggers for Woodlarks with a small donation HERE
In today's podcast there are repeated references to Cheryl Cole as I discuss Utilitywise (UTW), Sensyne Health (SENS), Neil "smug bastard" Woodford, Flybe (FLYB), Eqtec (EQT), Phontonstar Led (PSL), Active Energy (AEG) and Altona Resources (ANR)
As this morning’s shock revelations about Neil Woodford’s greed and reward for abject failure start to sink in, I imagine that many investors in his funds will be feeling a deep sense of disgust and regret. Perhaps they will blame those who advised them to invest and who, as the performance has gone from bad to worse, to even worse, have told them to hang on or average down. Perhaps the biggest cheerleader has been Hargreaves Lansdown which has just published another blow job type piece on Woodford.
Nope Cheryl Cole is not mentioned. But plenty of other old faves including Quindell (QPP), Globo (GBO), MySquar (MYSQ), Julie "Lingerie on Expenses" Meyer, Big Sofa (BST), Wishbone (WSBN) and Neil Woodford are. There are six resolutions. The first concerns fitness and the walk for Woodlarks where I urge you to donate HERE
Just when you thought it was dead, wrote Gary Newman on 5 December 2018. Clearly some people were on the pitch – they think its all over. Well, it is now! Last night at 5.40pm AIM-listed The People’s Operator (TPOP) announced the resignation of FinnCrap as its Nomad. That should have given this POS a month to find a new one, but since it has been suspended since failing to produce its FY17 accounts, it will be booted off the Casino on January 3rd.
There were two enormous red flags waving at NetScientific (NSCI), the healthcare IP commercialisation group. The first was the announcement a few weeks ago of a “strategic review” which in plain English means “we are fucked” and the second was that Britain’s worst performing fund manager Neil “Nomates” Woodford owns 47% of the company with the funds he used to manage round at Invesco owning another 19%. And so to today’s disastrous news.
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 gyrations in the share price of Frontera Resources (FRR) caused by its latest lie-packed City presentation have forced the company to put out a statement and it makes for truly grim reading. This company is worth 0p per share and in the current climate it may well get there before too long.
In 2017 Purplebricks (PURP) held its AGM on 29 September and pushed pout an H1 trading update on November 6. The news was not blisteringly good but enough lipstick was put on the dog to fool the sell side analysts. Wind forward 12 months…
On Friday some punters paid up to 13.5p for shares in Stanley Gibbons (SGI) after it claimed that it had received a bid approach. The shares are now c11.5p to sell after that was exposed as er...just not true.
By my maths Strat Aero (AERO) now has cash of er...about...roughly...sweet FA. It is completely out of cash and continues to burn cash and indeed when publishing results that were drowning in red ink on September 30th the management were reported as admitting that it needed to place before Christmas. I should cocoa. You don't need the brains of Cheryl Cole to work that one out.
How on earth did hapless Nomad Peel Hunt sign off on what Jim Mellon's FastForward Innovations (FFWD) terms a "strategic update" but is in fact nothing more than a shameless pre placing ramp.? My comments are in bold. FastForward's are not.
It looks as if shareholders will very soon hear the final grim news at Gulf Keystone (GKP). I first said sell at 180p and have been given grief all the way down. Folks can line up to apologise to me in an orderly queue. I discuss who is to blame and what happens next. Then it is onto the reason Brexit is not the real issue, there is an elephant in the room and its European but its on the other side of the channel. That takes me to the UK deficit, Cheryl and the cheerleaders and my stance on equities.
Last time it was the slowdown in house prices. Today it is the fact that UK equities are not rocketing that Malcolm Stacey is blaming on Brexit fears. His fellow Guardian reading Euro loons blame Brexit for slowing UK economic growth while Dodgy Dave blames it for an increased chance of World War Three. Maybe it is Brexit that is causing Cheryl Cole not to head out to the Greek Hovel for a night of passion with me?.Bloody Boris, you bastard: it is all your fault that I am not playing jiggy wiggy with the UK's leading chanteuse tonight.
George Osborne says UK house prices will fall by 18% if we vote for Brexit. At every single conceivable level he is talking bollocks. Even the lovely Cheryl Cole can testify to that as I explain in today's podcast.
Conroy Gold (CGNR) has today put out a laughable release claiming that it is "targetting" 5 million ounces of gold at its deposits on the Irish/Ulster border. I, as you know, am still targeting getting up close and personal with Britain's most talented chanteuse but I've been on my quest a lot less long than Conroy has been, unlike the AIM tiddler I'm pursuing my quest with my own money and there is almost as much evidence to support my dreams as that of the AIM listed money cruncher. That is to say sweet FA.
Show Me the Money was not only an award winning TV programme fronted up by a terribly witty and intelligent chap whose name temporarily eludes me, but is also what shareholders in MX Oil (MXO) will be shouting at CEO Stefan Oliver today. The Nigerian moolah has still not arrived.
As a bear of Gulf Keystone (GKP) since 180p, I note that the shares are now just 11p after the publication of results which are at every level just a disaster - even today this is a storming sell. Where to start?
In today's St David's Day podcast I wish my Welsh listeners a happy national day and - especially for you - discuss why sheep porn matters. I then move onto Horse Hill and today's news and why Ben Turney and the other silly rampers are talking shit. To make it simple, I use the analogy of Ms Cheryl Cole and Mr Wayne Rooney. I discuss African Potash (AFPO), letters of credit and thus Environmental Recycling (ENRT) and its fellow FRAUD Eden Research (EDEN). Its PR man Queenie McManus is - I assume - still smearing me as he chats to his pals the Bulletin Board Morons - but the company refuses to meet for an interview. What - other than fraud - is it hiding? I discuss Greka Drilling (GDL) as it heads down the pan and - after today's results from Barclays (BARC) - banks in general and why Old Getafix is wrong to be such a bull.
Just a reminder that it is Shrove Tuesday or, as younger folks might say, Pancake Day. Next up I shall be asking what you are giving up for Lent? I shall be giving up expressing my undiluted admiration for Britain's leading chanteuse Ms Cheryl Cole. Back to shares and I discuss what is real asset backing and what is it worth with relation to Allied Minds (ALM) and Cambian (CMBN) and a piss poor trading statement from Tungsten (TUNG). I express some displeasure with MX Oil (MXO), now off any buy list, and then move onto Servision (SEV) which is heading to where Motive TV (MTV) is now - off another 50% at 0.00p
Shares in e-procurement software provider, EU Supply (EUSP) currently trade approaching 30% lower today, at 4.5p, on the back of a “trading update”. Hmmm, I wonder what that has in store?
Yesterday Quindell (QPP) fraudster Rob Terry announced that his Knob Park vehicle had spun out a new subsidiary ( which is this still controlled by Mr 2+2 can = 5) , Quob Park Technologies and that "Quob Park Estate (the parent), along with its partners, will be providing advice around the company’s future development strategy, fundraising and corporate financing activities, including any potential IPO". Rob you are avin a bubble.
If a company tells a demonstrable lie in an RNS that tells you everything you need to know. I turn now to the Greek operations of InternetQ's (INTQ) Akazoo unit. I spent an hour last night with a friend of mine in Kalamata, George the architect. He is Greek and what we discovered demonstrates that InternetQ has lied to investors.
It is short podcast time as I am having issued sending material back to the UK. The Albanians did not turn up today so the olive harvest is delayed by 24 hours. It may be delayed again if I have to head to Athens on Global Shorting Conspiracy business. Things are starting to get interesting as I mention briefly and this is NOT Globo (GBO). Elsewhere I cover Edenville (EDL), Gulf Keystone (GKP), Sweet Group (CSG), Atlantic Coal (ATC), Iofina (IOF) and African Potash (AFPO). Warning: this podcast contains bad language and rather too many references to Britain's most talented chanteuse Ms Cheryl Cole.
I am attracted to stunning women. My wife and, obviously, Cheryl Cole. Evil Knievil is attracted to fine wines. In fact to any wines. And it seems as if pouting ex Sefton Resources FD Raylene Whitford is attracted to overvalued cash strapped POS AIM listed oil Companies.
Market abuser Chris Oil seems attracted to lobster pot stockmarket disasters in the way that I am drawn to Cheryl Cole. It is fascinating to watch car crash after car crash for the little twerp. Following on from Sefton (upping his stake to 13%) just before delisting, Lenigas Cuba (CUBA) – nuff said – now we have Mkango Resources. This train wreck hits AIM on December 2nd.
AIM-cesspit poster-boy Daniel Stewart Securities plc (DAN) has announced the raising of £650,000 from the issued of convertible and non-redeemable bonds. It then goes on to say that a total of £630,000 has been received. So it has raised £630,000 so far, not £650,000. Perhpas that is splitting hairs. But we are also told that the company continues to work on the finalisation of a placing....which it expects to announce shortly. Ah, that word "shortly" again. I'll come back tomorrow to see Mr Godot. Tom Winnifrith continues to work on the finalisation of an approach to Cheryl Cole. Well, maybe it is on the way after all.
On 1 Oct - almost a month ago - shares in AIM-Cesspit poster-boy Daniel Stewart (DAN) were suspended as the company had, for the second year running, failed to publish its accounts on time. The statement issued by the company referred to a funding package, that it [Daniel Stewart] expects to announce shortly, following which it expects to be able to publish its FY 2015 Accounts and resume trading on AIM.
The good news: Worthington's lawyers letter issued today is not from Pinsent Masons and so as per my deal with God earlier I can carry on drinking, swearing and thinking about Cheryl Cole. In short: the letter has arrived and I shall see you in short bitchez! I am not a man for backing down. The bad news, my critics have anounced they will smear my 78 year old Dad as well as me. I feel a bit of white rage coming on here. At a company level I discuss Trap Oil, Gulf Keystone and Tangent Communications.
Okay none of you guessed, my first lawyer’s letter of the year came from Lse.co.uk. Apparently I have damaged its good name and caused it distress. Yes, that is the website which each day carries at least 50 posts smearing me with all sorts of abuse and lies. Next up, Prince Andrew is going to give me a lecture for inappropriate behaviour because my wife is six years younger than I am.
After not one but two visitations from the ghostly figure of the grandfather of Christmas share blogging, Rob Terry was jolly glad to be back in his massive four poster bed. His faithful watchdog Cencord slumbered on, snoring loudly and oaccsionally licking his master's toes, but still young Mrs Terry had not returned from her girl’s night out and it was now quarter to midnight.
I have pointed out numerous times that GXG listed US Oil & Gas (USOP) is a worthless POS with joke assets run by liars. Just check the archives on ShareProphets. Wee Brian McDonnell has served up a Christmas treat for us all with an announcement from GXG that trading in the shares has been suspended because of a disorderly market. FFS
Today I start a new feature here on ShareProphets as I look into the world of Venture Capital Trusts. Traditionally the VCT season tends to run between the New Year and the end of the tax year so I thought I would scrutinize some of what is on offer as the promotional bumph starts to hit the doormat.
I have noted before how I regard Paul Scott as the UK’s top share blogger. A trained accountant his judgement is, nearly, always bang on the money. And he is a nice chap although his recent Greek travel exploits seem a bit wishy washy to me – next time Paul fewer whinges about mosquitoes and tweets about cocktails, more frigana cutting! Anyhow, he posted a comment on Quindell (QPP) yesterday which is bang on the money and reads:
It happens once a day. Some helpful fellow – who inevitably owns shares in Quindell (QPP), blinkx (BLNX) or Globo (GBO) says that I do not behave like a proper journalist and offers helpful suggestions about how to improve my zero credibility. Inevitably one of those suggestions is to write less about blinkx, Quindell and Globo but there are others. Let’s get this straight.
If you are a good Chinese company you list in Hong Kong or Shanghai because it is easier to raise money, here is liquidity in your shares and ratings are higher. If you are a piece of Junk (geddit?) you list on the AIM Cesspit. Time and again it is the same old story. Today’s catastrophe is Bodisen Biotech (BODI) – which Chinese POS will be next?
Quindell (QPP) has today updated its shareholders on its plans for a Full Listing. The statement is weak, begs questions and was only prompted by me and others asking questions. I know that Rob Terry, the Quindell PR bimbos and his other advisors are keen readers of this website and I am glad that they have tried to answer a valid question raised here.
