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.
In today’s podcast, I discuss Christmas cheeses past and present, Bluebird Merchant Ventures (BMV), Guild E-Sports (GILD), Boohoo (BOO), Ince Group (INCE) Supply@ME Capital (SYME) and Eurasia Mining (EUA).
Recorded from my new studio, that is to say a hired car in Greece, I start with olive harvest news then move onto Versarien (VRS), Supply@ME Capital (SYME), Guild eSports (GILD) and Argo Blockchain (ARB). Natch you’d be bonkers to own any of these four stocks.
When not earning millions promoting one of the most hateful homophobic regimes on this planet or appearing with his good pal Elton at a gay Pride event, Mr David Beckham has become a celebrated investor. There is Guild E-Sports (GILD) which will see him turn £250,000 into £15 million however badly the company does. And it is doing badly. And then there is Cellular Goods(CBX) with the same motley crew of pre IPO investors and advisors. It makes facecreams which must be useful if, like Becks, you have two of them. It had results today.
The antics of the Mike Edwards/Jonathan Bixby gang at Aquis listed Dispersion Technologies (DEFI) have been well documented on this website. All sorts of scoundrels backed this in a heavily discounted pre-IPO round, the sort of scoundrels whose accounts at broker Pello ignore lockins and the smoke and mirrors continues today with news of an acquisition. The stench here is getting unbearable.
On 30 June 2021, Guild Esports (GILD) published its interim financial statements for the six months ended 31 March 2021 which showed cash and cash equivalents of £15.86 million. These interim financial statements were unaudited and unreviewed by their auditors. However, they did state that they had been prepared in accordance with International Accounting Standard No 34. Hmmmm.
I say this is David Beckham’s company, just to remind you that Becks owns less than 5% having put in £250,000 at a fraction of the 8p IPO price just over a year ago. In return for promoting this company’s products Becks will trouser a guaranteed c£15 million over five years. Today Guild (GILD) made a shocking admission but showing it does not give a FF about market rules today saw a shocking admission but not the full story.
It has been a bad day at the homestead, the Welsh Hovel, as I explain. I have also had a run in with Shipmans and other staff at “the envy of the fecking world” so am in a bad mood. I discuss Kefi (KEFI) and what is happening in Ethiopia. I know more than all the BB savants but there is only so much that I can say. Then I look at the David Beckham-linked swizzle at Guild ESports (GILD) and, by implication, Cellular Goods (CBX) both of which will end in tears and be posterboys for the bezzles at the fag end of a bull market.
On Thursday 4th February at 7 AM a CBD company Cellular Goods announced its plans to raise £8 million on a £20 million valuation and join the (sub) Standard List, home to so many frauds and dogs. The night before, Sky News came up with the “scoop” that this news could be revealed as soon as the following morning and that David Beckham had invested and would soon sign a deal to promote the CBD skin product. Oooooooh a nice photo of Becks and blow off comment with no questions asked, this is the corrupt MSM and a PR drop all over again as I noted with the other listed company where Becks has “invested”, Guild Esports (GILD) the other day HERE.
I start with the annual horror that is doing a tax return for the Mrs. It was a pleasant shock. Then onto Left and Gamestop. Then I look at MyHealthChecked (MHC), Novacyt (NCYT), Jubilee Metals (JLP), another man with a posh wife who might struggle with her tax return – Mr David Beckham and E-Guild (GILD) -, and the real issue at Supply@ME Capital (SYME).
As you can see here, I shall be engaging in a small act of defiance tonight. In the podcast I discuss UK Oil & Gas (UKOG) - forced by myself to ‘fess up today about what is happening at the Gatwick Dribbler. I look at Trainline (TRN) and explain why the soon to be ex CEO is not a crook, at Guild Esports (GILD), Bluebird Merchant Ventures (BMV) and at Jubilee Metals (JLP).
I start with a few notes on preparations for Thursday’s funeral following my piece on mad Covid rules and Dad’s ceremony HERE. Then I look at Verditek (VDTK) and Versarien (VRS) where the wheels realy are coming off. Then it is onto a defence of my friend Tim Blackstone and my analysis of Metals Exploration (MTL). Finally I look, in real detail (hence the length of this podcast), at Guild Esports (GILD) which was much hyped by the deadwood press at its IPO a few weeks ago partly because David Beckham was investing in it. I expose why that is so utterly misleading, Becks will make a killing from this IPO but I suggest mug punters will not. This whole thing stinks.
