In today's podcast I look at Eurasia Mining (EUA), Powerhouse Energy (PHE), Shield Therapeutics (STX), Simec Atlantic (SAE) and Ben's Creek (BEN) and John Story of Chill Brands (CHLL) and Cellular Goods (CBX) infamy.
The Financial Reporting Council is currently investigating this deception; now, Chill Brands (CHLL) has assisted with that enquiry by fessing to the total cost of the (pointless) domain name, Chill.com - a transaction that suggests the company may soon need yet another bailout. Let me explain.
The comedy shit show from the liars and fraudsters at Chill Brands (CHLL) continues. Well, I guess that it is not so funny if you paid 110p last year to see new shares offered at 2p but then folks cannot say that they were not warned by my good self well over 200 times! In today’s instalment of beer and popcorn we discover…
Earlier this week, I complained to the FRC about the grotesquely misleading interims, published by the fraud, Chill Brands (CHLL), on 28 January. Given the company has now undertaken a bailout fundraise, the FCA will have to act. Moreover…
In today's bearcast I discuss the different regulatory failings of AIM and the Standard List referring to 2 companies worth 0p, Vast Resources (VAST) and the fraud Chill Brands (CHLL) and the lies they tell. I look at Amur Minerals (AMC) and Eurasia Mining (EUA) and in detail at Novacyt (NCYT). I mention Jubilee Metals (JLP) where I am a loyal shareholder.
How investors wish that the FCA had dealt with my previous letters as a responsible regulator of the Standard List would have done. But it did not, and thus, earlier this week, the fraud, Chill Brands (CHLL), announced a bailout placing at just 2p. Unfortunately, it is clear that on a number of grounds, investors were deceived ahead of that fundraise. I have written to the FCA.
One of the reasons the fraud, Chill Brands (CHLL), had to do a bailout placing this week, is the ridiculous purchase of a domain name. I can now reveal how the company has deceived investors about this fantastic money spunk.
Last time, the complainant was anonymous; this time, it was Julie Meyer. I describe my chat. Suffice to say that Ms "sex toy on expenses" Meyer will again be frustrated. I contrast these Police visits with the way they failed me when I exposed the Chill Brands (CHLL) fraud, and was then harassed and smeared - I wonder how the guilty men, notably those at Buchanan Communications, feel this afternoon. Today, I deserve a shed load of ouzo after numerous triumphs and, in turn, I look at Chill, Supply@ME Capital (SYME), Bidstack (BIDS) and Vast Resources (VAST). Actually, I am joking about the ouzo: the kids and I are off to buy a hosepipe extension, some lavender plants, and an ice cream for Joshua. That is our reward.
Excuse me if I crow, but all the threats, harassment and smears I have received from those paid to attack me, as well as from dumb investors, enraged that I had dared to expose this crock since 3 February 2021, must now be viewed in light of a bailout placing, announced yesterday, at just 2p.
This has been the most stressful day in Greece for a long while; I really do need a holiday. I explain all. Then I look at Sensyne (SENS); Chill Brands (FRAUD); Blue Star Capital (BLU) and an AGM shock that may trigger the collapse of the Bixby, Edwards, Frangos, Story and Peter Wall house of cards. Then it is onto Canadian Overseas Petroleum (COPL), where today's placing vindicates me. I argue that a 20.75p share price is a compelling shorting opportunity on a risk-reward basis. Matthew and his dog will enjoy that section, as Arthur Millholland, the snake oil salesman at Canadian, really is talking shite in today's release. I am so angry.
The fraud, Chill Brands (CHLL), is almost out of cash. It is existing on vapours and is not paying bills. But if it is to get any refinancing away, even a massively dilutive one, the existing board must change, as it is just not credible. Hence today’s night-of-the-long-knives announcement.
Listen to the 20 most listened-to Bearcasts since January 1st and you'll hear nearly seven hours of Tom's dulcet tones unwinding the unexplainable, embarrassing the shameless, and chiding the ridiculous (Music Magpie holders? Chill Brands RNS's?) Plus cats, gardening, and, if I heard these correctly, life as a single mother.
Some ShareProphets articles are marmite, in that it's good for you but not very popular. Other ShareProphets artiicles are, well, marnite, in that they cause widespread, viceral disagreement. Here are the twenty stories that ShareProphets readers read and read with Julie Meyer featuring in four of them. Ms Lingerie on Expenses sure is box office.
I start with news of flooding at the Welsh Hovel, and end with a reminder of podcasting schedules as I head to the Greek hovel. Then, I apologise to Peter Brailey as I cover: Simec Atlantic (SAE); Kefi (KEFI); Ince (INCE); Arden (ARDN); Cellular Goods (CBX); Chill Brands (FRAUD); Gatemore fund managers and Sensyne (SENS); Mark Slater and the folly of attempting corporate regime change; and Audioboom (BOOM).
I explain why the podcast is late. Apologies. Then I look at a bubble that is clearly bursting, what caused it and what happens next. I mention a number of companies, including: Cellular Goods (CBX); Seed Innovations (SEED); Eden Pharma; and Chill Brands (CHLL).
I explain why and about a bit of a mishap as I left Wales. The it is onto musicMagpie (MMAG) after this piece earlier, Parsley Box (MEAL), Chill Brands (FRAUD), Online Blockchain (OBC), TrustPilot (TRST) and Knights Group (KGH). After my enforced training walk thismorning you can donate to Rogue Bloggers for Woodlarks HERE on the news of our new star walker.
Forgive the voice. Last week’s cold has left me sounding like I have been swallowing gravel. I start with a few words about distractions today which included ordering 72 blackthorn plants and 12 wild blackberry bushes and fetching antique Welsh furniture to go to Greece. Then I ponder whether Nigel is reinvesting his Ariana (AAU) dividends in Ariana (AAU).I explain why I am not and where I am putting the cash. Or rather I am sitting on the fence between Optibiotix (OPTI) and Skinbiotherapeutics (SBTX). The 3x company I mentioned on Saturday, is a well known one and will be exposed via a multi-part series kicking off tomorrow at 8.30 AM and it is, I am sure, a zero. Ahead of then I discuss what makes a real bear market and how it affects rubbish stocks out of cash. Until you see a good few RNS statements each month saying that “shares are suspended pending clarification” you are not in a bear market. In that vein, I mention three POS companies which RIGHT NOW have no cash and are burning it: Vast Resources (VAST), Chill Brands (CHLL) and Supply@ME Capital (FRAUD) and I discuss the next steps for that trio and why the net is tightening on them.
There now seem to be serious peace talks in Ukraine with both sides, apparently, prepared to give a little to stop the bloodshed. I know too many folks are beating the war drums and bursting with pride every time a British missile takes out a Russian tank but they are mistaken as I explained in a podcast HERE. As a human being I pray for peace and an end to the killing. If there is peace all stocks will melt up, but especially the big caps.
I discuss the latest developments in Ukraine. Then I move on to Fevertree (FEVR), Tern (TERN), Braveheart (BRH), Iofina (IOF) and the fraud Chill Brands (CHLL) and the bucket shop based maths based on liquidity, or rather the lack of it.
My quiz question has an Irish theme, I have a Greek Hovel offer or the genesis of one and, indulge me in this day of sweet victory, I then discuss in detail the strange death of the fraud Chill Brands (CHLL) as we wait for the last rites to be read.
Auditor PKF LittleJohn will already be considering the unenviable task of auditing the accounts of its fraudulent client Chill Brands (CHLL) for the year ending March 31 2022. Given that Chill is now already teetering on the brink of insolvency I would suggest that PKF asks for payment up front. In light of the shocking admission today, I felt it wise to mark the card of PKF and my good friends at the Financial Reporting Council on two matters. My letter is below:
This is awful. After a number of communications between myself and the FCA, the regulator of the Standard List, the fraud Chill Brands (CHLL) has been forced to come clean on its related party “loan”. And the truth is awful. Chill now admits that nearly all of its H1 sales were in fact booked to a key shareholder which has not paid for the product bought. This is a pig and pork fraud as I suggested in THIS podcast sent to the FCA the other day.
I discuss those threats and at a company level I add commentary on Nightcap (NGHT), Cake Box (CBOX) Chill Brands (CHLL), Cellular Goods (CBX) and Supply@ME Capital (SYME)
I discuss with reference to Tulsi Gabbard, who I admire immensely, and Nigel Farage, who I don’t, what makes someone a Russian asset. Neither Nigel or Tulsi are but that won’t stop certain loons from saying they are. Then a bit more on dangerous fake news. Then I look at Pearson (PSON), Novacyt (NCYT), Nightcap (NGHT), Deepverge (DVRG), Chill Brands (FRAUD) and Supply@ME Capital (FRAUD).
Obviously I do hope Chelsea goes bust and is docked 500 points and finds itself playing next season in the National League so allowing two clubs to be promoted which might just include Wrexham. But what is happening to the Abramovitch sets a dangerous precedent. I discuss this with reference to Evraz (EVR). I look at Parsley Box (MEAL) and the role of certain institutional investors and also FinnCrap (FCAP) in some detail. I predict Parsley will go bust by the autumn notwithstanding today’s dishonest bailout. I look at Oxford Cannibinoid (OTCP) and the growing scandal there and also comment on Eurasia (EUA), then at Chill Brands (CHLL) and that other Standard Listed fraud Supply@ME Capital (SYME). I discuss Summerway Capital (SWC) and Argo Blockchain (ARB) but I start with a parents dilemma.
I start with a recovered Joshua learming a new word. Then it is onto Gfinity (GFIN) and Nigel Wray, Guild ESports (GILD), Parlsey Box (MEAL), the markets and Ukraine, Chill Brands (CHLL) – the day’s biggest gainer (pro tem), a true dead cat bounce and Cineworld (CINE). There is also a history lesson for GCSE student, our in house Euro loon, my friend, Jonathan Price.
I am shortly off to Tesco then will be in action as the family cook. Ahead of that I look at Deepverge (DVRG) run by the arse Gerry Brandon, wondering which will come first, the next trading warning or the next bailout placing, at Mirriad (MIRI) where I disagree with comrade Stacey, Amigo (AMGO), Chill Brands (CHLL), Jubilee Metals (JLP), Supply@ME Capital (SYME), Cellular Goods (CBX), oil, gold and Ukraine and finally at Argo Blockchain’s (ARB) latest news.
On Saturday I explained in great detail why the $1million loan made by Chill Brands (CHLL) to Ox Distribution has almost certainly been recycled as revenue which makes this a classic pig and pork style fraud. But even if it is not a pig and pork it still breaches the rules and here is why.
These are the most-read articles and most listened-to Bearcasts of the week. The two most read non-Tom items last week were by me – The ShareProphets Sunday Pub Quiz #130 and Sunday Long Reads: Last of the Department Stores, Successful Estate Agent, Secret Taliban, Inside Pornhub, New Goldfish– which should buy me some time against a P45. TW Note, Don’t kid yourself. The most read non-Tom, non-Darren story is After Ukraine it can never be the same again and it is going to be far worse before it gets better by David Scott.
The gardening photos from the Welsh hovel will appear later on my own site. Before then I review the 4 retail stocks of the Lucian Miers apocalypse: Versarien (VRS), Supply@ME Capital (SYME), Eurasia (EUR) and Chill Brands (CHLL) and then my 10 stocks to collapse by Christmas. One has fallen so far it is probably not a short now though I would not buy it while three look set to go to zero, possibly as soon as next week in one case. My 10 are Supply, Chill Brands, Versarien, Avacta (AVCT), Wildcat Petroleum (WCAT), Amigo (AMGO), Cineworld (CINE), Argo Blockchain (ARB), Verditek (VDTK) and Tern (TERN). I also look at the oil price and consider whether those sitting on gains might bank a few profits.
With Chill Brands (CHLL) the only question is when the end game is played out. In this podcast I discuss the nature of fraud and suggest how it is possible that the company is a 100/100 fraud on the spectrum of crime becuase it may have committed a pig and pork type fraud for c£1 million. This podcast has gone to Mark Steward and his team at the FCA asking that it makes an urgent enquiry and if the answer is yes it is suspension and game over. If the FCA is as useless as ever the auditors will cry fowl in the summer and it is game over then. But i am 99% sure that this is a pig and pork and I believe the smoking gun is there for all to see.
What I show you below, is not the sort of post one sees every day on the LSE Asylum, especially on the Chill Brands (CHLL) board. As yet there has been not one apology for industrial scale historic abuse received from Chill owning morons. Maybe next week, after what I shall be serving up after lunch on this nailed down fraud, more sinners will repent.
I start with a look at wider stockmarket sell offs in the UK, US and especially Germany and what we – who will all be down – should be doing about it. I warn that if you go full bear you could be burned when most shares spike or rebound as will happen at some point. I comment specifically on the frauds Chill Brands (CHLL) and Supply@ME Capital (SYME) and on Ukranian hookers and fake news and also on Ten Lifestyle (TENG). And I discuss pen Orphan (ORPH) vs Braveheart (BRH), the saintly Cathal Friel vs the spiv chancer Trevor Brown. It is all to do with returning capital or not.
I last wrote to the FCA as regulator, no sniggering at the back, of the Standard List, about the almost insolvent fraud that is Chill Brands (CHLL) on 31 January, just five weeks ago when for a second time I flagged up how it was deceiving investors with sales announcements that are bogus. Npw it is a 3rd strike on this count and the FCA needs to suspend trading in Chill shares pending an enquiry and sanctions against its management team and advisers Allenby. I have gone to the head of enforcement Mark Steward with the letter below.
Oh dear. Oh dear. Oh dear. Just when you thought things could not get any worse for the fraud Chill Brands (CHLL) they have. A trading statement signed off by adviser Allenby is a total shocker and exposes more deception by a company heading rapidly towards insolvency. Surely the FCA must, this time, act? If it does it is a quick death. If it does not the cashcrisis means it is still a fairly quick death.
David Beckham-backed pot play Cellular Goods (CBX) has axed its boss after serving up a horrible lack of sales warning, as I said it had to do on January 7 HERE, and I shall come to that later. But first just to point out how evil PR spinner Neil Thapar rather over-eggs the pudding when it comes to media endorsements in today’s release. In a series which also included a riveting read “Woman claims mixing semen with her moisturiser gives her glowing skin: Is there any truth in it?” Thapar et al reckon that the Metro newspaper endorsed Cellular’s products. Well er …
In a long podcast I explain why the climate has changed so making it a year for the bears and then explain the common thread and individual reasons for my top ten shorts for Christmas 2022. The terrible ten are Supply@ME Capital (SYME), Tern (TERN), Avacta (AVCT), Versarien (VRS), Chill Brands (FRAUD), Amigo (AMGO),Cineworld (CINE), Argo Blockchain (ARB), Verditek (VDTK) and Wildcat Petroleum (WCAT)
A year ago shares in Chill Brands (CHLL) the fraud then known as Zoetic (ZOE) were 76p as I published a 60 red flags dossier. Here is how one moron responded – natch by abusing me. The shares are now 9p. I guess this tweet has not aged terribly well. Meet Stocks Gazer. He is a moron.
I start with two attempts to restrict what I say, one HERE and another to be discussed later. This is the sort of day when I consider packing it all in, chucking my laptop in the river and spending the rest of my life gardening and keeping goats. Then onto Capital Metals (CMET), Chill Brands (CHLL) and Optibiotix (OPTI)
Set to run out of cash and go bust within weeks, the fraud Chill Brands (CHLL) is again deceiving investors with news of a “landmark partnership” which is neither a landmark or a partnership. The deal is with a company called Fabric.
Do you remember all the abuse that this site and I got when publishing the 60 red flags dossier on Chill Brands (CHLL), Zoetic as was, exactly one year and one day ago? I was part of a short selling cabal, the FCA would have my testicles roasted on a fire by the weekend, I did not know what I was talking about, etc, etc, etc. The shares were them 76p mid. Today they are 7.625p mid. – a near as damn it 90% fall. The next 90% fall will be far quicker and it could be far greater.
I start with Hitpiece – the latest NFT scam. Aren’t all NFT’s scams? I discuss the ephemeral nature of contemporary music as an asset class. Then onto Amigo (AMGO) where – with the shares surging – it is surely ‘a mega’ short. Then it is onto regulatory and ethical failure at Braveheart (BRH) and Chamberlin (CMH), the common links being the scumbag Trevor Brown and the scallywags at Peterhouse Capital. Then on to more regulatory failure at Chill Brands (FRAUD) before I take along look at UK SPAC (SPC) and all who sail in her. Finally a few words on Optibiotix (OPTI) where I plan to catch up with Steve O’Hara later today.
Since the Standard List is regulated – no sniggering at the back – by the wretched FCA, lying to investors about the nature of a transaction is probably not considered to be a problem. Here is a deception and rule breach served up by the soon to be insolvent fraud Chill Brands (CHLL) on December 20 2021.
In today’s bearcast I discuss Cineworld (CINE), Gulf Keystone (GKP), Chill Brands (CHLL), Omega Diagnostics (ODX), Vast Resources (VAST), Joules (JOUL) and the dreadful grammar of the younger brother of London’s worst Nomad, Roland “fatty” Cornish. How many BP’s does Michael think there are 2, 3, 27?
The real issue with the fraud Chill Brands (CHLL) is that it could run out of cash within two weeks. It is teetering on the verge of insolvency: the FCA IS NOW looking closely at interims from last week which imply that THREE trading statements in 2021 announced, what are now, clearly bogus sales and meanwhile its main ramper, the lying rule breaking John Story who said the shares would go to £25 is bailing as fast as he can. Today we have news from Spreadex.
As I write, four of the top 12 fallers are stocks that I have exposed as total wronguns and one of the four even coughed up that I had gpt a scoop on Friday. In today’s podcast, which should please Matthew and his dog, I cover: Omega Diagnostics (ODX) and its porkies, MGC Pharmaceuticals (MXC), a Turner Pope dog still valued at £40 million even now but not worth a fraction of that, Guild ESports (GILD) & the greed of David Beckham, Vast Resources (VAST) and the fraud Chill Brands (CHLL ) which could be going down the plughole for good within a couple of weeks. I forgot to discuss the latest news from Zak Mir and Lift Ventures. That will have to wait for another day.
Shares in Chill Brands (CHLL) were 76p when I published that 60 red flag dossier last February – they are today at just 9.25p, the lowest since July 2020. They are falling sharply again today on the back of Friday’s interims which showed sales in the six months to September 30 which were only about half the level of sales already announced in three separate RNS statements covering the same period. I have again written to the FCA.
These are the most-read articles and most listened-to Bearcasts of the week. The most-read non-Tom is Eurasia Mining: It’s Time to Fess Up and Tell the Truth SP Angel! by Evil Banksta at Number 8 ornumber 15 including bearcasts.
I start with the University of Chester and despair. Then a win for the bears, well done Fraser. Then I look at Nanosynth (NNN), Advance Energy (AVD), Omega Diagnostics (ODX), Supply@ME Capital (FRAUD), Chill Brands (LIARS) and the GM called to sack Clem Chambers at ADVFN (AFN)
Being shown to have deceived investors in a material way about your sales is a hanging offence as I explained to the FCA earlier. But drill down into today’s interims from the fraud Chill Brands (CHLL) and more red flags emerge. Let us start with note 8.
In light of interims today from Standard Listed Chill Brands (CHLL) which show clearly that the company has lied to investors in inventing bogus sales which it then announced via RNS, I have written to the FCA which is the regulator – no sniggering at the back – of the Standard List. Surely announcing bogus sales cannot be acceptable?
Chill Brands (CHLL) has today issued results for the six months to 30 September and quite simply what it says does not tally with numerous RNS statements about sales. This is slam dunk fraud but it gets worse.
We will come to the latest deception by the fraud Chill Brands (CHLL) later but first a lesson for Buchanan PR and its China fraud specialist Henry Harrison-Topham. It seems Buchanan was fired in November.
Tomorrow will be a day of domestic childcare hell so I flag up now that my copy may be limited. Today I discuss Novacyt (NCYT) vs IG Design (IGR) where I think young Steve is wrong to be so bearish after today’s 53% share price fall. Then I look at two potential zeros Chill Brands (FRAUD) and Verditek (LIARS).
When shares in the fraud Chill Brands (CHLL) surged towards a quid, spiv John Story told folks they were going much higher. He gave ramptastic interviews where he told lies about the company then known as Zoetic (ZOE). He ostentatiously bought a few more shares. He engaged with the man who helped Harvey Weinstein to silence his victims to harass and troll myself, Gary Newman, Peter Brailey and others to try and scare us away from exposing this con. But now with the shares barely into double figures Story is bailing. And here’s why.
This podcast contains reference to various chats with Lucian on the markets, millennials and on Cake Box (CBOX) after yesterday’s bearcast & the Maynard Paton expose. I discuss what Trustpilot says about the company HERE and Lucian’s road trip to do more due diligence. Re Lucian I also discuss other big blowups that will happen this year and bitcoin. Then there is Amigo (AMGO), Chill Brands (TOAST), MyHealthchecked (MHC), Novacyt (NYCT) and Argo Blockchain (ARB) in light of today’s NFT nonsense but also the collapsing bitcoin price.
Ahead of what will be dismal interims and a catastrophically bad update on current trading due within 11 days and with a bailout placing needed PDQ, shares in Chill Brands (CHLL) are again lower today at 11.8p. My target price is still 0p and still the idiots who have ignored my numerous warnings from 76p down as they know better still play the man, me, not the ball, my data and bear thesis. Meet kaka47 on the ADVFN Asylum who posts:
Okay the crime is not as exciting as it sounds and was not, as far as I know, perpetrated by some Bulletin Board loon. After discussing that I look at Chill Brands (CHLL), Brave Bison (BBSN) and Skinbiotherapeutics (SBTX)
In today’s podcast I cover Chill Brands (CHLL) and Guild E-Sports (GILD) as both prepare to publish results.I look at lessons learned, or rather not learned by the Oxymorons at AIM Regulation, from Deepverge (DVRG) and I comment on Union Jack Oil (UJO), its disgraced boss David Bramhill and its inevitable cashburn.
Will Joshua ever make it back to school? There appear to be suggestions that Wales’s bone idle teachers will postpone his education in why white privilege makes him an automatic victim by yet another day. In the podcast I discuss why Cliff Weight is wrong about share options, the Chill Brands (CHLL) spoof and then took a detailed look at AIM China play Univison Limited (UVEL) which looks tome to be a zero. Have you looked at what this loss making indebted POS spunked £949,000 on during the first half? In signing off on interims,Nomad Spark Advisory is ‘avin’ a bubble.
I discuss the arrests made on 29 December in the USA and why the FCA should look at some of the activities of folks in the UK small cap world. Case studies include Eurasia Mining (EUA) and Chill Brands (CHLL). I then move on to Supply@ME Capital (SYME) and its news today, Wildcat Petroleum (WCAT) and also Verditek (VDTK), which I reckon is a zero for 2022 but since it can’t be shorted is not one of my tips of the year. To JP, sorry I have no idea why Peel Hunt quit as broker to Bushveld (BMN) but I suspect it gave three months notice. Leaving SP Angel as sole broker can’t be seen as good news. It is like firing our beloved West Ham as joint broker to retain the sole services of Chesterfield Town.
I start with my personal experience of the NHS today and how much I’d like to see all GPs lined up againat a wall and shot. I am so bloody angry. Then it is onto Union Jack Oil (UJO), Chill Brands (CHLL), Tern (TERN), the fraud Supply@ME Capital (FRAUD) and Hurricane Energy (HUR)
The fraud that is Chill Brands (CHLL) is running out of cash fast with sales at levels that are almost statistically insignificant. Rather than update us all on that tale of woe there is another spoof. This is all part of an attempted ramp to get a deeply discounted bailout placing away as soon as is possible. Todays spoof is laughable. I offer a translation service
We knew John Story was a proven liar and a lock-in rule breaker but we thought he was smart so would have been dumping his holding in the fraud Chill Brands (CHLL) as it rapidly runs out of other people’s cash. Au contraire, if he is telling the truth, Story has been catching the falling knife.
I write after a day in which shares rallied sharply after Friday’s big sell-off. That shakedown was on fears that the Botswana covid variant or rather the extreme over-reaction to it given the level of hospitalizations and deaths it has caused (0 & 0) could see corporate earnings hammered. I noted on Friday that the sell off was driven by a false fear. Surely even the lunatics in charge of the asylum we call Britain will soon have to accept that the Omicron (an anagram of moronic) variant is no great threat and thus the new lockdown measures will have to be reversed and thus the impact on PLC earnings will be trivial. One would hope so. That growing realisation that our leaders have blundered is what, one suspects, drove the rally.
When Oxford Cannabinoid (OCTP) listed in May, raising £16.5 million at 5p I warned you all that its £48 million market cap was a complete rum ‘n’ coke. This company will, in a best case scenario, generate first revenues in 2027 and it will very obviously run out of cash well before then. I reckon the next cash call is within a year. Meanwhile the non-financial red flags mount at an alarming rate.
There is news of an interesting new shareholder today at ADVFN (AFN). I discuss what is, I think, going on and why you should not bet the ranch on a formal bid emerging. Then I look at the crackers acquisition made by Nightcap (NGHT) as La Willingham refuses to address the manifest corporate governance failings at her firm. Finally Chill Brands (CHLL) has been relegated to the Spartan South Midlands Division One and I explain what that means.
The top non-Tom article this week is Oil and Gas– I think an inflection point has been reached: oil could hit $200 and here is why by Peter Bailey at number three or number eight if you include the Bearcasts.
Matthew and his Dog will enjoy this one. I discuss just two companies: Abingdon Health (ABDX) and the fraud Chill Brands (CHLL), the photos which I refer to about it are HERE
Shares in the fraud Chill Brands (CHLL) have raced ahead today by 53% to 17.25p on the back of news of a new distribution deal. Yup, the market cap has gone up by c£12 million on the back of a transaction worth £275,000 or less. Insane. You bet. But of course Chill does not give any numbers in its release and morons buying this stock have not done the maths or checked out Google Earth. I have, as you can see below.
I record from the Welsh Hovel which is once again a building site. Excuse any background noise. I look at Wildcat Petroleum (WCAT) and its uncorrected and untrue 4 October RNS. Then at the fraud Chill Brands (CHLL). In both cases the regulator, the hapless FCA, should be acting right now. Then it is onto Cineworld (CINE) and, with the graphic below – hat tip EB. I explain why its trading statement is so deceptive and why the shares are still a sell. Finally a few words on Optibiotix (OPTI) & Skinbiotherapeutics (SBTX) and today’s confirmation of what a good journalist I am. What does it mean for both stocks?
Yesterday, in bearcast, I explained in detail why the Chill Brands (CHLL) website is misleading with regard to major shareholders and why the proven liar John Story must have reduced his interest but has not filed a TR1. Sadly, there appears to be no corrective RNS so I have written to Nick Harriss of Allenby Capital, Chill’s retained adviser, suggesting that if he has a shred of integrity he will correct the situation. I cc in the FCA
It was, of course, John Story who engaged with Seth Freedman, causing the harassment of myself, Gary, Peter, and a poor PR girl some months ago. We know he is a proven liar and also a rule breaker. So has he been dumping shares in Chill Brands and not telling anyone via TR1? You bet. And I prove it in this podcast. I also suggest what Chill, its shamed advisers Nick Harris of Allenby, and arsehole journalist smearer Henry Harrison-Topham of Buchanan as well as the FCA need to do about this mess.
‘The best time to kick a man is when he is down’ is a quote from my friend the bear raider Simon Cawkwell, aka Evil Knievil. It is not a reference to individuals who have fallen on bad times for Cawkwell is, sometimes, not that uncharitable, but to shares in companies hitting new lows.
There are suggestions today that Chill Brands (CHLL) next bailout fundraise will be at 5p. I would suggest that this is the bull case. Rapidly running out of cash and with a business model that is a proven failure I cannot see why this business will be rescued until it is on the brink and the spivs at broker Peterhouse do a friends and family offer at 0.1p turning it into a cash shell. What is clear is that the shares will collapse as stale bulls dump and that anyone hanging on is insane. But what of the FCA?
A second podcast on the US elections, analysis results I predicted so accurately yesterday can be found HERE. In this Bearcast I cover Chill Brands (CHLL), what the FCA must do NOW and why Chill is now officially fecked, Darktrace (DARK), Trainline (TRN) and shocking news from Parlsey Box (MEAL) flagged up by Sherlock – surely this demands a formal statement.
Yesterday saw two trades of 2,005,106 and 2,550,000 Chill Brands (CHLL) shares dumped well below the offer at 14.25p. That is more than 2% of the equity. There were other big sells below the bid on Monday. Was a major shareholder at last accepting that I was right or was this just canny de-risking as today there is a trading statement which is so terrible it is hard to know where to start. No doubt the FCA will ensure there is no story of insider dealing to tell. So how bad is the statement? It is dire.
Shares in Chill Brands (CHLL) have fallen by almost 20% since the start of the week and it is not yet Tuesday Lunchtime, unless you are Roland “Fatty Cornish in which case Tuesday lunchtime started just after elevenses. In such a situation many companies would be tempted to issue a “we know of no reason for the share price move” statement. But Chill cannot and it cannot for two reasons.
In today’s Bearcast, I ask how much would you be prepared to do to break LSE Rules to stop your company’s share price from crashing – ref Chill Brands (CHLL). I look at Versarien (VRS) and its latest spoof and the track record of it spunking your cash via Innovate UK grants. But the meat here is on HK360 Limited Brian Basham, Net Zero Infratructure (NZI), the FCA and what appears to be amassive failure of corporate governance, as outlined HERE
Shares in Chill Brands (CHLL) have slipped again today to a new year low of 17.75p. Ouch. To think that they were 76p when I published that 60 red flags dossier but of course the bulletin board morons, Seth Freedman et al knew so much better. The question now is about the trading statement and US sales update. What statement you say? Exactly!
I have again written to the FCA as it is meant to be the regulator, no sniggering at the back please, of the Sub Standard list on which the fraud Chill Brands (CHLL) is listed. The company said that it was going to publish quarterly sales updates. It has not for the three months to September 30 and as the interims will, in due course show, that is because quarterly sales were sod all. Thus, having claimed that it was profitable the company is sitting on a profits warning. That is a breach of market rules. The letter follows.
I start with the wish of Joshua’s best pal to be a sheep in the school play. Like father like son, natch my boy is one of the three wise men. Then I ask if Andrew Bell will be fired at the Red Rock Resources (RRR) AGM before looking at Simec Atlantic (SAE), Feedback (FDBK), the fraud Chill Brands (CHLL) and my next missive to the FCA and British Honey (BHC) where, following up from my earlier piece, it seems an entire family was at the trough.
You can get borrow and you should. There is a collapsing long position on margin but the real reason to go aggressively short of Chill Brands (CHLL) is the deafening sound of silence. Let me explain.
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.
I sart with the unhappy young man. Actually he is in his 40s. But it is a tale which, I suspect, is being replicated across the UK. It will trigger abrain drain as we go back to the 1970s. Then I discuss the scumbags at Abingdon Health (ABDX) screwing PIs ahead of an inevitable placing, I ask when Sosandar (SOS) will warn as it surely must, I look at share trades in the fraud Chill Brands (CHLL) and what they mean and then ask what the xxxx (Matthew & dog please insert word) Luke Johnson is doing investing in the lifestyle business run by the upper class twit of the year that is Marechale Capital (MAC). I am sure it will do better as an investment than Patisserie Holdings (CAKE) but not that much better.
Tomorrow, I shall tell you about a young man in despair, naming no names but what it says about this country. Today, I look at Powerhouse Energy (PHE) options and warrants, Zoltav Resources (ZOL), Sensyne (SENS), Supply@ME Capital (SYME), Parsley Box (MEAL), Deepverge (DVRG) and Chill Brands (CHLL).
In today’s podcast I look at a raft of utter triumphs for me as a bear: Rosslyn Data (RDT) – no longer run by a former pornographer – Supply@ME Capital (FRAUD), Chill Brands (CHLL), Braveheart Investment Management (BRH) and Parsley Box (PUKE).
Advisors should have their interests aligned with those of shareholders. Not so Virdian Capital Partners, announced today as the new strategic advisor to the fraud Chill Brands (CHLL). Strategic advisor my arse, Viridian is a broker and corporate financier. Its remit as a strategic advisor is according to Chill, but the underline is mine: “in connection with capital raising strategy, M&A strategy, development of its board of directors and investor relations.”
I sart with a chat I had with my friend Lucian Miers on Demetri Kofinas and financial nihilism. Honest, it is more interesting than it sounds. Then to gold and why one might be losing faith. Lucian has. Then to two stocks I own Kefi (KEFI) and MyHealthchecked (MHC) and one that I do not and which is on its way down the plughole: the fraud Chill Brands (CHLL).
The FCA is meant to regulate the Standard List of the LSE. Cripes it is not just at the back I hear sniggering, you are all laughing out loud. Please be serious and let us treat the FCA with the respect that it is due. Standard Listed Chill Brands (CHLL) has misled investors as to its trading position. What will the FCA do about it? I have written a letter this morning.
The results for the year to March 31 2021 came out on August 31 but the audited annual report is not out until today, the day of Chill Brands (CHLL) AGM so a second AGM will be needed to approve this sad document. I can see why Chill does not want folks reading the report for it contains multiple horrors all of which indicate that the shares are going to crater. My target price remains 0p-5p but, after today, 0p looks far more likely.
I receive an invitation to an online pot conference. More signs this sector is hot and thus one I shall avoid. I mention Chill Brands (CHLL) which is not hot and which could see its shares suspended by Friday. I discuss why the Tiger Royalties (TIR) portfolio is toxic and could implode. Surely its Nomad Roland “fatty” Cornish can peer over his ever expanding belly and see the danger? I discuss en passant Go Ahead (GOG) and in more detail interims from Powerhouse Energy (PHE). Then to why HEIQ (HEQ) numbers today are so dripping in red flags as yet another recent IPO ( 10 months ago) comes crashing down.
Shares in the fraud Chill Brands (CHLL), formerly the fraud Zoetic (ZOE), are falling again and now trade at a new year low of 24.75p to sell. With suspension possible as soon as Friday, with almost no sales now in the US and with the market cap still a bonkers £53.3 million, of course, anyone with half a brain cell should sell. But then nobody with half a brain cell would own the shares in the first place. The big question is when will the long delayed annual report arrive? What do you think. Vote below:
I discuss the Mrs and I both taking tests this morning as we both feel a bit under the weather. Then I look in detail at Chill Brands (CHLL) where the risk-reward of holding until next Thursday is surely terribly unattractive and at Tern (TERN) accounting for Geeks, what is being hidden and why that makes this such a sell and also at Argo Blockchain (ARB).
Appointment of strategic advisers shouted the press release. What, thought I, a strategic review to understand why sales are SFA and the company still can’t get it annual accounts out? Er no. The headline should have read “sales failing, more money spent on brand promotion but not enough cash to make a real difference.”
I am up early thanks to a new nightmare. Can anyone interpret it? Are you out there Joseph? I then look at saint Vin Murria and Summerway Capital (SWC). Then I discuss Lucian Miers big Joe Retail toxic four (Chill Brands, Supply@ME Capital, Tern and Eurasia), why things are going his way, which will crack first and why and what the fallout will be. A regular bearcast will follow later.
I start with one big story, the Stagecoach (SGC) & National Express (NEX) bid talks. The other big story is the word “bird” being dubbed sexist at an insane Barclays (BARC) employment tribunal which I cover HERE. I also look at Versarien (VRS) ahead of its AGM, Chill Brands (CHLL) ahead of its AGM and at regulatory issues for Eurasia (EUA) and Deepverge (DVRG) where the wrongdoing is as plain as day.
a few more words on Umuthi (UHS) after today’s bombshell and on where it leaves the FCA. Then I flag up a few personal committments which sees me cooking like a dervish for a few days but then I shall be onto my next fraud expose which is also in Africa but this time with AIM listed companies. Then I look at comedy from ADVFN (AFN) ask a serious question abut Chill Brands (CHLL) and the proven liar John Story and finally discuss Argo Blockchain (ARB)
I make three excuses for a short bearcast all of them equally valid and then serve up a normal length bearcast after all covering ennui and self delusion setting in at Chill Brands (CHLL), my ancient memories of Anglesey Mining (AYM) and why you should not believe a word that it says and the most excellent expose by Peter Brailey of Powerhouse Energy (PHE) which we published today.
There are certain questions that the fraud Chill Brands (CHLL) will not answer because were it to do so truthfully it would expose just how badly its business is failing. With a three months to September trading update due within a couple of weeks I have written to the company with those questions
After the farce of the diabolical and unaudited annual results for the year to March 31 issued at 6.25 PM on August 31 attention now turns to the annual report and AGM of the Chill Brands (CHLL) fraud. Today the company is posted its required 21 day notice that the AGM will be held at 4PM London time in the US on 30 September. All well and good, but…
Yesterday I was reviewing Lucian Miers’ big 5 small cap shorts with the great bear over breakfast. Breakfast BTW was porridge with homemade stewed apples (from the Welsh Hovel) in cinnamon. In the podcast, I discuss last night’s culinary fare but then probe Lucian on what he sees as critical mid and end points for each of his 5 UK small cap big shorts: Tern (TERN), Versarien (VRS), Chill Brands (CHLL), Supply@ME Capital (SYME) and Eurasia Mining (EUA).
I flagged this up in bearcast yesterday, the case of the two large trades in the fraud that is Chill Brands (CHLL), both sells, going through late on Friday of last week. I have written to the FCA urging it to investigate.
I start with what should have been Joshua’s first day at school but for the utterly inexcusable laziness of the teachers. Then I mention Versarien (VRS) before moving onto the fraud Chill Brands (CHLL), a bt of CV analysis at Nanosynth (NNN) and a discussion of the latest nonsense from Eurasia Mining (EUA) where again I compare it with Jubilee Metals (JLP).
Perhaps the incredibly dim, journalist£smearing, PR man Henry Harrison Topham advised his clients that sneaking out one of the worst results statements I have ever seen at 6.25 PM on the last day of the month on which it was promised would mean that nobody noticed. There is a reason why, despite all those expensive Harrow fees, Henry only managed to gain acceptance at Northumbria University when it was still Newcastle Polytechnic. For the sneaking out of what is an abomination only attracts attention to how bad this all is for Chill Brands (CHLL), the fraud formerly known as Zoetic (ZOE).
In today’s bearcast I look at Salt Lake Potash (SO4), MyHealthChecked (MHC), Supply@ME Capital (SYME), Chill Brands (CHLL) and Union Jack Oil (UJO) as well as at internet trolls who want me dead.
In May of this year, the fraud that is Chill Brands (CHLL) announced that its piss poor results for the year to March 31 2021 would be out in July. July saw two utterly dreadful trading statements but no results and on August 4 the fraudsters said that, due to covid (natch), results would be in August. That was bollocks.
Two dogs, covered extensively on Shareprophets.com where i am short are leaving it rather late to come up with the goods. Chill Brands Group (CHLL), formerly Zoetic, has until Tuesday to publish its results to March 2021 (and that’s after a Covid extension) and Supply@Me Capital (SYME) has stated that a trading update is “expected” this month.
I start discussing Laura Ingalls Wilder and why I read her books to Joshua and as an aside, have an amusing – one has to laugh – tale from Sweden. Elsewhere, I look at MyHealthChecked (MHC), Nanosynth (NNN), Amigo (AMGO), Chill Brands (CHLL) and Dev Clever (DEV). Enjoy the bank holiday weekend. I shall as my mother-in-law is coming to stay. You see, irony is not dead.
In today’s bearcast, I look at those failures in detail: Wildcat Petroleum (WCAT), Tirupati (TGR) where you might brace yourself for some language some may deem sexist and not very 2021, and Supply@ME Capital (SYME) where today’s extraordinary news really should alarm any holder. I also revisit Argo Blockchain (ARB) which has published its US listing prospectus HERE which I comment on. En passant, I look at share trading patterns in Versarien (VRS) and Chill Brands (CHLL) and what they tell us about sentiment in what were last year’s Bulletin Board darlings. They are just so 2020 aren’t they?
I am not in the slightest bit apologetic. In fact I think she is rather pathetic and she deserved exposing for raising money on a false prospectus. But I am the pantomime villain of the Holt facebook page yet again today as I explain HERE. I then discuss Roquefort Investments (ROQ) a proposterous Standard Listed shell, Kefi (KEFI), Chill Brands (CHLL), and Nanosynth (NNN)
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?
Canadian and Aquis listed Yooma (YOOM) has today bought the leading British CBD brand Vitality for, depending how you look at it, £8 million or £10.2 million. The read across for the valuation of Chill Brands (CHLL), the fraud formerly known as Zoetic, is a disaster.
On February 3 2021 I published a damning 60 Red flag dossier on a fraud called Zoetic (ZOE) with the shares at 76p. The response was utterly poisonous.
