David Beckham ‘’e's ‘avin’ a larf – tragic finals from Guild Esports, cash burn central, Yellow Journalism at Daily Mail disgraced again!

Floated at 8p on the (sub) Standard list on 2 October 2020, football gaming shower Guild Esports (GILD) now sees its shares languishing at just 3p after the release of truly dreadful interims. The only shareholder laughing all the way to the bank is David “show me the money” Beckham.

Explosive: 2018 Document from Neil Woodford which shows him admitting to screwing Old Mutual to meet redemptions

Thanks to Winnileaks I have obtained an explosive document prepared by Neil Woodford in January 2018  in which he answers questions put to him by Old Mutual for whom he – at the time – managed a value fund. I publish it in full and it is explosive in part because Woodford – for once – shows a degree of honesty in what he says. And that makes it all the more damning. If the FCA can be bothered to read this it explains in a nutshell why Neil Woodford should never again be allowed to manage other folk’s cash.

Recent Footsie Falls are Bonkers as the Economy Looks Set to Burst Forth.

Link Accused of Throwing Good Money after Bad at Former Neil Woodford Fund

Link seems to have a habit of shooting itself in the foot at the former Woodford Equity Income Fund as it prepares to defend itself against a legal onslaught from Harcus Parker on behalf of 6,500 folks whose investments were mis-managed into the ground by Neil Woodford, overseen by Link acting as authorised corporate director (ACD). Most recently, it has announced that it has invested some of the fund’s cash into a company called Mafic and the mainstream media has been having a field day as cash supposedly due to be handed out to beleaguered Woodford investors has headed in the opposite direction.

Once again the heroic boss of JD Wetherspoon has dared to speak out against the GroupThink gripping academia, the media, and the political classes on the subject of Covid. As an example of this madness, rather silly Daily Telegraph reporter Helena Horton was today lecturing the actor Laurence Fox on twitter about his idea of meeting six folks for a drink tonight.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Ian Smith you are in denial and Versarien tell us about the Nike "leak"

I start the podcast with my torture in trying to transfer a pension from the Daily Mail to my SIPP. It got so surreal this week but I might be making, expensive, progress. Then I look at how we often jump to easy conclusions when a share price falls. I am guilty of one such lazy jump. I refer to Versarien (VRS) and UK Oil & Gas (UKOG) in this section. I also have questions for Versarien and its hapless Nomad Bobbie Hilliam of Quindell infamy about the recent spike in its share price. Then I look at Bidstack (BIDS) and investors in denial and finally at Ian Smith and MXC Capital (MXCP) which is leaving the AIM Casino which is NOT what it should do. Smith is in denial too.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast - My Slimbiome arrives this afternoon

In today's podcast I discuss Optibiotix (OPTI), how the critics have moved the goalposts and the ghastly Daily Mail. I also look at Big Dish (DISH) where ennui is setting in, at misleading interims from the worthless cur that is Plutus Powergen (PPG), at serial confetti issuer Zenith Energy (ZEN) and then at Eurasia Mining (EUA) where, after this post, I should say Optiva is now denying it is doing a placing. But frankly, it's still a matter of when not if.

Neil Woodford Dog RM2 to be fork-lifted off the AIM Casino at last

There is no doubt in my mind that disgraced Neil Woodford’s revolutionary pallet company RM2 (RM2) should never have got anywhere near the AIM Casino and through keep-the-lights-on refinancings (largely paid for by Neil Woodford with other peoples’ money) it should have been removed a long time ago. But Neil needed the listing as he tried (and failed) to keep within his 10% proportion of investments  unlisted limit so despite protestations from within, the AIM listing continued. Well, this morning it is all over bar the shouting.

Redemptions Watch: Neil Woodford’s Income Focus Fund gains... but will WEIF fiasco renew redemptions?

Neil Woodford’s Income Focus Fund (WIFF) had a good day yesterday as it put on 0.53% in NAV per unit, according to Morningstar. Mind you, the FTSE-100 put on 1.8% and the FTSE All-Share index added 1.5%, so it wasn’t all that great. But a gain is a gain. In theory, that should have pulled the total assets up from Friday’s close of £287.65 million to £289.17 million...

Who made the worst Neil Woodford call? Egg on Face Contest

The deadwood press was fawning as a pack over Neil Woodford until relatively recently. For a long time myself and other other writers here, notably Cynical Bear and Nigel Somerville, were lone voices in the wilderness though our analysis was spot on. But in recent times Neil has lost most of his makes but some still stayed loyal.

More bad news for Neil Woodfjord (Geddit?) as Thin Film reports in the middle of the night

Oh dear, oh dearie me. Woodford dog Thin Film of the Oslo Bors province (THIN) has reported its full year numbers to December 2018. We knew they would be bad – there was a strategic review post-period – but it looks as though a trip to the corporate undertakers could be on the cards unless the company can get a fundraising away, and with Neil Woodford out of cash that’s going to be a big ask. Even if it does, unless Woodford stands his corner he could be diluted away into oblivion.

Neil Woodford’s disaster of the day No 1 – Netscientific

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.

Woodford Patient Capital lasts just 11 days in FTSE 250 – PR campaign neutered after feck up

The PR machine of Neil Woodford got its pliant servants at the Daily Mail and elsewhere in the corrupt deadwood press to make great play about how the Woodford Patient Capital Trust (WPCT) was about to go into the FTSE 250 Index so meaning that Index funds would have to buy the shares so the share price would go up. Uh Oh! Late last night came an announcement from the LSE:

The Daily Mail repeats the Neil Woodford lie as it tries to save him yet again

Over the past two years one salient feature of the Neil Woodford car crash is that every couple of months the Daily Mail or Mail on Sunday, which were the biggest cheer-leaders for Nomates when he set up Woodford Investment Management, runs an article saying “it’s bad but will get better, average down.” The trouble is that the Mail thesis is based on one big lie.  At the weekend it was veteran Personal Finance hack Jeff Prestridge who landed an exclusive interview, i.e a blow job for Neil.

Neil Woodford gets blow-job write up in Daily Mail - shameful journalism but look at the reader comments!

"Why Woodford has NOT lost his magic touch... despite UK's star stock picker seeing a series of huge bets going wrong spectacularly". So screams the headline on a leading article by Paul Thomas in the Daily Mail. I suppose it depends on how you define magic? If you mean it is making things ( like other people's money) disappear then indeed, Nomates is still the King. Why was this article written?

Another Woodford money pit – Thin Film Electronics

I wouldn’t normally cover stocks listed on the Oslo exchange but Thin Film Electronics was mentioned in the comments of a recent Woodford piece and I also noted it was the Share Punt of the Week in the Daily Mail on Friday, so if it is good enough for them to recommend a Woodford-backed cash guzzler to its brain dead readers, it is appropriate for me to provide another side to that story, especially as the cash burn here is off the scale.

YOLO: Surprise, surprise, the Daily Mail was totally wrong again

I smiled wryly at the announcement on Thursday from YOLO Leisure and Technology (YOLO) about its investment in Magic Media Works, the manufacturer of the Electric Jukebox / ROXI as, once again, it makes the Daily Mail look pretty silly and one wonders whether its “financial journalists” ever ask a probing question before just publishing whatever is served up to them by corporate PR.

Nektan: CEO quits – Daily Mail readers have had a bad week!

No great surprise that Nektan’s (NKTN) CEO, Leigh Nissim, has announced his resignation this week as it must be a challenging and dispiriting role, although one I do wonder when he actually started looking as he’s been in the role for less than a year. It leaves me though with me with a sinking feeling about the PR machines at play at this end of AIM and must also leave Daily Mail readers fuming.

Tom Winnifrith & George Orwell Bearcast - the tax on the stupid goes into overdrive today

Surely a statement is needed to explain the share price movement.

Proactive Investors - surely it & the Daily Mail should declare that this is paid for ramping?

I have no problem with folks taking payment to promote a stock. If a company wishes to spunk shareholders cash to pay an IR firm like Proactive to record a soft interview with its CEO that is not an issue as long as commercial interests are declared. You have got to be transparent. But Proactive Investors and the Daily Mail are showing no transparency and this is surely wrong. I refer to Inspirit (INSP) ramping.
