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.
