Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: making the local Beauty Queen cry

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)

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: PR firm takes its knob off the Block

Forgive the crude title or love it if you are Matthew and his dog. I could not resist. I start with a discussion of the tyranny of village facebook pages prompted by my latest spat with some villagers of Holt in Wales HERE. Then I look at Kefi (KEFI), Zoetic (ZOE), Kanobo (KNB), Supply@ME Capital (SYME), Block Energy (BLOE) and the bitcoin pump by America’s Neil Woodford and others. Ian Westbrook is now at just under £12,000 and has ten days to reach £20,000 to see the loathsome Neill Ricketts at the next stage. To call the bluff of the Versarien (VRS) bully, please donate HERE. PS Darren points out it is the 26th not the 27th. He is correct.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Zoetic shares crash 20% in US

I start with a request to you all, to help me nail some villains. Please can you send THIS OUTSIDE PAYWALL ARTICLE to all your twitter, instagram, facebook etc accounts. I then look at the frauds Zoetic International (ZOE) and Supply@ME Capital (SYME), as well as Best of the Best (BOTB) which is not a fraud but is a stock that for three reasons I would not touch with a bargepole.

Have you lost Money on the Appbox Media and One True View £35m cons - contacting the FCA as new facebook group goes live

The first time I contacted the FCA about these two boiler room scams was in November 2019. Natch the woke dullards were too busy jerking off on ESG porn to do anything and now about £35 million has been stolen. My coverage has been extensive as you can see HERE. But now it really is time that the FCA did something and put these frauds to the sword if only so that those who invested under EIS can get some of their cash back.

A Grade share ramping from Big Dave Lenigas – the great man takes to facebook to discuss Greatland Gold

When is an exploration company worth £1 billion? Very rarely. When does its market cap reach £1 billion with almost no, or no, institutional support?  The answer is when you are in a bull market and the stock is being ramped by folks saying it could treble again.  Ask yourself whether you would rather own 40% of Centamin (CEY) which has cash, is producing vast amounts of gold and whose directors are not big sellers of stock or 100% of an exploration play with heavy boardroom selling like Greatland (GGP). Exactly…my thoughts too which is why I own Centamin. But Big David Lenigas owns Greatland and so writes on facebook:

The View from the Montana Log-Cabin as the Nasdaq sells off, Gold holds its own and I welcome convert Jeremy Warner of the Daily Telegraph

Phew – that was quite a week! Having posted yet another all-time high on Wednesday, the Nasdaq went into a mini-meltdown and dragged the DOW and the S&P with it, albeit to a much lesser extent. Even Bitcoin felt the wobbles as it closed the week at a shade over $10,000 having notched up almost $12,000 during the week. But as I sit here on the veranda of my log-cabin gazing out into the woods (where my secret stash of Gold is buried) it was a week of relative peace: it went up to just shy of $2,000 per oz and closed the week at $1935. Crisis? What crisis?

'Why Are Many Shares Holding Up In the Virus Carnage?' and How to Exploit a Strange Situation

Hello Share Trashers. A good friend asked the other day why shares are holding up so well, despite the inevitable recession to come. Well, of course, the answer is that many aren’t. My Shell (RDSA) shares are down by a half and my Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS) holding is dire. But overall the general market is bearing up because the virus has benefitted the techies. This is rather ironic…

Not So Sure About this Marketing and Communications Giant as the Times They Are A-Changing

Hello, Share Flashers. One of the biggest business turnarounds in recent years is how advertising is changing. Though many of us are irritated by the seemingly unstoppable surge of adverts on the telly, the truth is that more adverts are being swapped over to big techies, like Google and Facebook. So it’s not entirely surprising that WPP (WPP), the giant marketing, P.R. and advertising agency, has reported lower revenue for the third quarter of 2018.

Elon Musk's biggest fan in Greece updates his facebook page - crime does pay for Costis the Globo fraudster

Elon Musk might be forgiven for thinking that few in the business community still love him. But he does have fans. Step forward Costis Papadimitrakopoulos the founder and CEO of Globo (GBO) which raised tens of millions of dollars in debt and via issuing shares on AIM and claimed to have net cash but er... did not. It was a fraud and Costis took stacks of that cash and also sold all his shares before the balloon went up after being tipped off by snot gobbler Dan McCrum of the FT. Anyhow Costis has been busy on facebook updating his profile last month as you can see below.

You say Facebook...and I say Fadebook

Let's start off with a confession...I am actually not on Facebook (FB in the US) and have actually no real interest in ever getting a profile. Perhaps that makes me an unsociable Billy No Mates...or maybe it makes me a trendy young thing, aware that the creation of Mark Zuckerberg is looking a bit shabby around the edges after a last year full of privacy challenges, embarrassing Congressional testimony, two fingers to House of Commons committees and share sales by a certain M Zuckerberg. More on all this in a second. The reason why today I am ignoring the bevy of large cap UK listed stocks that have reported is because the most fascinating move in global markets over the last 24 hours was the after hours 20% plunge of Facebook shares post its quarter two numbers disclosure.

Roger Lawson & ShareSoc links a hate crime against my wife with my writings - very poor form

On a post approved by ShareSoc on its blog, Roger Lawson has today commented on the incident I described in bearcast on Monday - the email I received in response to my fraudbusting work. I have made Lawson aware of the content of that email currently with the Police so something I cannot publish - but it is the most disgusting material about my wife of Indian origin. Yet he is unapologetic for writing in a way that trivialises it and has refused polite requests to withdraw his article of today. Roger, your failure to see hate crime against an innocent woman, committed by someone not wanting fraud exposed is poor form - you should have checked your facts before writing such a monstrous article. ShareSoc seems unapologetic too - wankers. Roger comments on Audioboom. My comments are in bold.

Tulip mania/south sea bubble – Snap IPO

It will also made its two founders, Evan Spiegel and Bobby Murphy, worth more than $5 billion each. The stock closed at $24.48, giving the company a market value of $28.3 billion. At one point it reached $26.05 and a market value of $29.1 billion. The company raised $3.4 billion at $17 a share after pricing its initial public offering making it the biggest tech float since 2014, when Alibaba shattered all records. It is almost three times the size of Twitter, bigger than both HP and CBS, and almost as big as EBay.
