Told y’all: Vast Resources - no bear squeeze, but a new spoof

In a string of RNS statements, Vast Resources (VAST) insisted it wouldn't allow death spiral provider, Atlas, to convert a final $800,000 of loan notes into forward-sold shares. The Bulletin Board morons made the error of believing this, and insisted there was a bear squeeze. Guess what?at?

In less than three months: 1.57p, 1.24p, 0.86p, 0.77p and now just 0.59p – the Atlas death spiral pushes Vast Resources shares ever closer & ever faster to 0p

By the end of April, worthless, deceitful and pointless AIM-sewer-listed Vast Resources (VAST) has promised to refinance its Atlas death spiral with a bunch of Swiss gents. But with $5.5 million outstanding on the loan, the market cap, at 0.625p, down to £2.3 million, and a high risk of bankruptcy, maybe the Swiss are getting cold feet. Hence…

Vast Resources: Atlas dumps again as cash crisis becomes critical – fat Lady now gargling for May Day performance!

Just four days after death spiral provider Atlas converted $150,000 of debt into Vast Resources (VAST) shares at 0.86p having forward sold, it has announced the conversion of another $150,000 this time at 0.77p. In February the conversion was at 1.24p. Do you see a trend? My guess is that those shares have already been forward sold and that Atlas will now be working on dumping even more stock ahead of the next conversion. Why the panic? Two reasons:

Rutherford Health (formerly Neil Woodford Favourite Proton Partners) – Is Reality About to Bite?

This website has made no secret of its cynical take on the valuation of one of Neil Woodford’s most controversial investments into Acquis lobster-pot listed Rutherford Health (RUTH), formerly Proton Parters. There was a tiny investment made at its IPO allowing Woodford to mark up his original investment heavily, but since Woodford held all the cards apart from Rutherford’s management, there was nobody to sell and thus the apparent price was, we argued, totally illusory. We predicted problems when the cash ran out……

Good news travels fast bad news is delayed – its Salt Lake Potash again

Shares in Salt lake Potash (SO4) have been suspended on the ASX since 27 July although on AIM they have traded since 29 July allowing anyone with half a brain cell to get out. The cause of that suspension was an admission of technical issues which meant a delay in production which, in turn, meant that without new funding Salt Lake would crash land in tits up alley by Christmas. As the meeting with the Fat Lady draws ever closer we have news today. Or rather lack of news on that financing.

BREAKING: AIQ – sub-Standard Interims from a Dead Man Walking as the Fat Lady Begins Her Warm-up

Sub-Standard listed AIQ (AIQ), pride and joy of Andrew Monk’s VSA Capital fold, has updated the market with publication of its interims. Given that the company only joined the LSE sewer that is the Standard List in January 2018 and spent its first six months suspended – in part due to disclosure failures in its Prospectus (nice work, VSA) – one might not be surprised to learn that AIQ’s existence hasn’t exactly been stellar. But this morning’s Interims – to April – are utterly disastrous. Shame on all concerned.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: I'm only doing it for the Israelis, for the Jews & what about the missing £100,000 say the morons

I start with a reflection on two smears from Bulletin Board Morons and about how media platforms from BBs to twitter need to respond to deal with such malice. Then a few thoughts on why the Tories are pissing off Tory voters in Chesham and elsewhere. Then I look at Versarien (VRS), Westminster Group (WSG) and at Bidstack (BIDS), breaking AIM Rules as it teeters on the edge. Oh, is that a Fat Lady I see gargling over there?

BREAKING: The FCA fecking up again, the next Mini Bond catastrophe: The High Street Group – is that a fat Lady I see approaching?

On its website under heading “High Street Group In Numbers” it states its Current Estimated Value of The Group is £1.5 billion and forecasted value of the company by 2023 is £3 billion.  My forecast value by the end of 2021 is exactly zero. You will not be able to say that you were not warned. Or that the truly useless FCA has done anything, or is currently doing anything, to stop mug punters losing cash on this mini-bond disaster. Given the scrutiny it faces over London & Capital Finance, that is doubly shocking.

URU Metals: A Massively Technically Insolvent POS “is pleased to announce” FY Results!

AIM-listed John Zorbas vehicle URU Metals (URU) has today released its FY20 results. It is “pleased to announce” them, as is Chairman Jay Vieira, but there is absolutely nothing here for shareholders to be pleased about. It is massively technically insolvent and the Going Concern statement is a hoot. And call me old-fashioned, but where has the Nomad signed off on this announcement? Maybe I am going blind, but I can’t see the Nomad mentioned anywhere: surely that it a breach of AIM Rules? Has the Nomad resigned? Should the shares be suspended?

Oi FastJet where is that trading statement you promised? Or are you too busy negotiating with the Fat Lady?

My guess is that the long awaited meeting of FastJet (FJET) PLC with a crash landing at Tits Up Airport cannot be postponed for that much longer. It is not as if this company could ever make any money pre Covid. But while I await that moment as one that I celebrate with champagne and noxious phone calls to its journalist smearing motherfucker PRs at Citigate Dewe Rogerson, I remind the company that it had promised us a trading update by Monday at the latest.  Specifically, on 8 June it stated: 

Updated: Intu: At 7 AM Oi Fat Lady no more gargling you are almost on! No at 1.43 PM, she is on!

Almost 100 times since the comical and failed Hammerson (HMSO) bid for Intu (INTU) in December 2017 which Steve Moore described as “shopping centre madness” we have urged you to sell or short Intu. Today, if we are not at midnight on the death clock, we are at 1 second to midnight. Update. at 1.43 PM we are at midnight. It is game over.

Filthy Forty Walcom: bank blinks first

They say that if you owe the bank a quid you’ve got a problem, but if you owe the bank a million quid – or in the case of ShareProphets AIM-China Filthy Forty group Walcom (WALG), RMB200,000 by the end of May, then it is the bank which has a problem – especially if Walcom can’t pay. And so the latest deadline came and went….and it was the bank which blinked first...

Filthy Forty Walcom – the Wagnerian opera continues, but for how much longer?

AIM-listed Walcom (WALG), one of the handful of remaining members of our AIM-China Filthy Forty has once again updated the market over its grim financial position……and the CEO loan which has still not arrived. This melodrama has been ongoing since January – one wonders whether the company thinks that if it drags on long enough the Fat Lady, who has been well warmed up for months, will finally be too hoarse to sing. But I fancy the denouement is now on the way.

Finablr – all over bar the shouting as the Emergency Fat Lady warms up en route in the taxi

Yesterday I described the lack of liquidity which had led to fully-listed Finablr (FIN) being unable to provide certain payment processing services as sounding terminal. And of course, the company had just turned up a stack of dodgy cheques, the CEO had walked and an investigation which sounded like a full forensic had just been commissioned. Now we learn that the emergency Fat Lady has been called in and is warming up en route to the theatre as we speak.

Filthy Forty Walcom - Fat Lady put off for another week but surely suspension is long overdue

The Wagnerian opera of the eventual demise of ShareProphets AIM-China Filthy Forty play Walcom (WALG) continues, as we learnt today that the bailout rescue loan from its CEO is still not in the bank, but apparently more orders and perhaps more importantly measures from the Shanghai government in response to the corona virus mean that the company will survive until a week on Monday in the continuing absence of the CEO’s largesse.

Catenae Innovation – the fat lady is coming on stage. And again: is the company trading whilst insolvent?

There is no answer to the question as to whether AIM-listed Catenae Innovation (CTEA) was trading whilst insolvent, as posed here. But what we do know is that the fat lady has finished her warm-up and is coming on stage: we learnt at 1.20pm on a Friday afternoon (AKA no-one-is-watching o’clock) that there is still no sign of the rescue bail-out funding hoped for on 11 January. And Catenae isn’t even sure whether the funds it hopes for will be in the form of equity or debt even if it does arrive. It doesn’t sound as though discussions have advanced very far, does it?

Following its rather smelly announcement after hours at no-one-is-watching o’clock on December 20 which offered up nice Christmas presents to shareholders in the form of a profit warning and a statement that its financial position was weak, AIM-listed Catenae Innovation (CTEA) followed up yesterday at 12.23pm (lunchtime on a Friday, no-one-is-watching o’clock) with a further announcement that it still not agreed the hoped-for £100,000 bailout and that absent new funding it will be a trip to the corporate undertakers.

Oh dear, oh dear – an intra-day Company Update….not a good sign. ShareProphets AIM-China Filthy Forty play Walcom (WALG) – one of a handful left – has updated the market on its position. We learn that African Swine Fever continues to affect most of the company’s domestic customers (so another profit warning), its former best customer still hasn’t paid up and it is unclear whether it will, the company has only funds to see it through to the middle of next month and absent alternative funding it will be a trip to the corporate undertakers. Apart from that, everything is fine!

DiamondCorp – Fat Lady in full flow and an investment lesson

Fair play to (pro tem, albeit currently suspended) DiamondCorp (DCP). The news is bad but at least the company is being plain about it.
