IQE – EBITDA bullshit again

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Just how do market makers work and set prices

I am asked this question by a long suffering reader in relation to Skinbiotherapeutics (SBTX) and do my best to answer. I look at IQE (IQE),the curious share dealing of Mr Drew Nelson and whether I’d be tempted. I still see no sign of the IPO of Zak Mir’s crazy media investment company which he said was imminent two weeks ago. Is it Lift off?  I comment on Bluebird Merchant Ventures (BMV)  and then have a detailed look at Sarah Willingham’s Nightcap (NGHT) in light of today’s expose. It really is a one way bet. Down.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: IQE in no way a Da company, I agree with Gary and that Big Sofa placing

I start with the Earl of Shrewsbury (not Shaftsbury a podcast mis-speak) who should be kicked out of the House of Lords after my latest cash for questions expose HERE. Of course he won’t be. Airstrip One is a rotten and corrupt place these days where folks like him are above the law.  Then I look at Cineworld (CINE), Big Sofa (BST), MyHealthchecked (MHC) and Horizonte Minerals (HZM) before looking at the peripheral issues raised by IQE’s (IQE) disastrous news and also at what is the real valuation, from someone who has called it 100% correctly.

Balchder Cymru IQE: ci gyda chwain yn rhybuddio eto

Just how many profits, or rather lack of profits, warnings has IQE (IQE) issued during  the 21 years since its 2000 IPO at c400p. The shares are today 40p after the Pride of the Welsh tech sector added another warning to its, already extensive, collection. I hope that folks have listened to my warnings over many years that this is a dog with fleas, or ci gyda chwain as we say here in the post-industrial, rain sodden, second world province.

Trading a bad stock like IQE

There are two ways of viewing IQE plc (IQE). One, mine, is correct. The other, as pushed by the share promoters, the numerous corporate brokers and financiers who see its constant demands for fresh debt and equity as something of a gravy train, is not. Let’s start with those who are wrong.

IQE and what it does not say in its trading statement

Crafting a brief one side of A4 trading statement as chip maker IQE (IQE) has today is not exactly a great effort. This is not translating the complete works of Shakespeare into Hungarian and then onto Welsh. So if something is left out, you must ask why?

Lots of Exciting Speculations Out There, Gang. But Boy! You May Need To Hover Over that Sell Button

Hello Share Peckers. As a private share trader, there are two ways to play the Covid outbreak. One is to assume all ships rise on the tide. And that as the virus will go eventually, we just need to sit back. The other is to take advantage of the scary volatility of some stocks at the moment. In other words to buy on the dips and sell on the jumps. So what will you do?

Hello Share Scrappers. Do you view the battered trade and foreign tourist industries as a buying opportunity?  Doesn’t every battered sector usually come back up?

And I certainly will now. The current French fiasco is only the start of travel restrictions yet to come. So where should we put our money now?

It is we in the private sector that have suffered the massive economic pain from the Government's blundering during Covid.

Fuck you Boris.  You and I are done - this was the final straw.

IQE and CEO Dr Drew Nelson – Missive to AIM Regulation and the FCA

I have dropped a note to our good friends the Oxymorons and Chocolate Teapots, of AIM Regulation and the FCA respectively, with regard to AIM-listed IQE (IQE) head honcho Dr Drew Nelson and his recent dealings with Equities First Holdings. It seems to me to be a certainty that he has not come clean over his loan that isn’t a loan, under which he is “obligated” to repurchase the shares he sold yet these deals are non-recourse (so he’s not “obligated” at all), where we were told he had cash put aside to meet margin calls but settled one with more shares, and where his margin call appears to have been reported well after the fact – or it was not the first – when, if I understand the rules correctly, all margin call matters and any other developments in relation to his EFH loan which isn’t a loan should be reported to the market within a few days.

We have heard nothing more from AIM-listed IQE over when head honcho Dr Drew Nelson received the dreaded margin call from Equities First Holdings (EFH) in relation to his non-recourse sale-and-repurchase deal involving (now) over 12 million shares. Yet as I noted on Monday, it seems pretty clear that we have not been told the whole truth and I shall be writing to AIM Regulation on that matter later today. But looking back, it seems there is something else which doesn’t quite match what we were told.

Three stocks where a Coronavirus warning looks inevitable & not discounted

It may seem tasteless to consider such matters but the reality is that Covid 19 is spreading and whilst the numbers infected are still a drop in the ocean the fear is palpable and the effects on the real economy are already clear. The Fed may have slashed base rates by ½% earlier this week but, like the markets which promptly puked, I do not see this curing anything. Folks are not going to start spending again just because money is a bit cheaper, further cheap money will not solve a snagged up supply chain...

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Even Shipston's Buffett is starting to panic

I am indeed with my father in Shipston this morning and even he has noticed that he is not quite as rich as he was two weeks ago. Shiuld we pamic about our holdings? On balance I am not suggesting that you do but certain stocks do look very vulnerable. Surely profits warnings from Telit (TCM), IQE (IQE) and Carnival (CCL) are in the pipeline. Then there is the issue of companies such as Bidstack (BIDS) which need placings urgently. Just how possible is that going to be in the current climate. Then to Sirius (SXX). The Sunday papers seem to think that sh\areholders may well reject the Anglo bid and so lose everything. I discuss this looming calamity, who is to blame and what the impact localised and more widely will be.

Breaking: Bear raider Matt Earl’s 2 Big Coronavirus Shorts

There will be some who say that shorting a stock because it is exposed to the fallout from Coronavirus and what may well soon be a global pandemic is Tasteless. They probably have no such complaints about going long of a company with a test for the product. I am sure we all pray that this human tragedy ends soon. But the reality is that right now it is growing and, notwithstanding today’s sell-off, many of us reckon the market in certain stocks fails massively to discount the downside risks.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Update from flood central, just when will IQE issue its Coronavirus warning

This really is today's bearcast despite my introduction. Thanks for the kind messages about the flooding, the waters are now recedng fast. In today's podcast I look at China and the Coronavirus and ask WHEN IQE (OQE) will warn and if that will force a discounted placing. Methinks it will. I then look at the rioles of brokers (does research mean anything)? and Nomads (rules on quitting) in general and specifically in relation to Versarien (FRAUD). Then I discussa crazed TW hater and Optibiotix (OPTI) and how ultimately all comment on a company cannot determine its real value. In that vein I also look at Novacyt (NCYT) before finally looking at the worthless joke that is Conroy Gold and Natural Resources (CGNR). And I announce a fifth rogue blogger, Praise the Lord.

Bulls claim to be delighted. Having issued a shocking profits warning on June 21, IQE has served up half year numbers which reconfirm full year guidance. There is no follow up profits warning. Well not yet. But bears have real reasons for cheer. Having stated in June that it could operate within its existing £27 million overdraft into Q1 2020, we see today that the company has secured an additional £30 million asset financing (expensive debt).

IQE – In the dock as the Equities First scandal re-emerges with an incomplete and therefore misleading statement

We have not heard from Equities First Holdings (EFH) for a while, but regular ShareProphets readers may remember the scandal which emerged five years ago whereby directors of AIM companies announced they were buying shares when, if fact, they were selling vast numbers of them to EFH with the right, but not the obligation, to buy them back. Such fine enterprises as Rob Terry fraud Quindell (QPP – now Watchstone), Igas (IGAS, under Andrew “piggy” Austin), Cloudbuy (CBUY), Angle (AGL), Optimal Payments (OPP) and, of course, IQE (IQE) were all dragged in. Well now Drew Nelson, CEO of IQE has done another deal with EFH – and the announcement stinks. Has the company learned nothing from last time, when all of the above companies had to restate and restate again?

Reader Poll: IQE appoints new Nomad and broker so what price is the bailout placing?

We warned you two days before the most recent profits warning from IQE that one was on the way, HERE,  and when it arrived it meant that the company was a slam dunk cert to need a bailout placing. Today we discover that Canaccord has been axed as Nomad and replaced by Peel Hunt while Citigroup joins the party as co broker. This can only mean one thing, that bailout placing is imminent. So with the shares at 52.4p on Friday (and overvalued at that) at what price do you think the placing will be at? Vote below with a deadline of midnight tonight.

Ouzo O’clock in North Wales, misery in the valleys as IQE warns (as predicted)

The Sheriff of AIM is surely entitled to a celebratory breakfast ouzo at his hovel in North Wales? On Wednesday I flagged up a profits warning from the Krauts at Siltronic and suggested that IQE (IQE) was likely to follow. Less than 48 hours later the Cardiff dog duly barks.
