TEK Capital - another Chronic Investor cock-up and a valuation that looks exceedingly full

TEKCapital (TEK) is on a roll. Its 15.1% stake in May AIM IPO Belluscura (BELL) has surged in value to be worth £15 million and to top it off Simon Thompson of the Investors Chronicle — in the past a great cheerleader for AIM listed China frauds — tipped the stock on Friday. But it seems Simon got his sums a bit wrong.

Notes from Underground: We now return to your regularly scheduled programme, already in progress

Tom has returned from his sabbactical and the stats speak for themselves: you people like Bearcasts. I can only imagine the plight of our readers for the past five months, fetal position on the floor, listerning to a skipping Victorola or the snow of an untuned wireless waiting for the return of Bearcast.

Notes from Underground: The Summer Wind, came blowing in, from across the sea

ShareProphets doesn't aggragate stories, we don't do clickbait, and we don't coddle our readers. You should be proud that you're one of them.

Notes from Underground: Telit to the hand

I had an oniine conversation with an FT reporter about the Telit affair over how the FT would rather credit some Italian newspaper than your obd't one stop source for free breaking news, expert analysis, and videos on AIM and LSE listed shares. They had to credit somebody given that the FT did not break the story themselves. How convenient for them. CityAM and other publications went with credititing nobody at all. The story broke itself!

New Bulletin Board Moron of the Week Contest - sponsored by the FD-less FRAUD Aquatic Foods

Thanks to a last minute sponsorship from China, where the financial director of Aquatic Foods (AFG) has walked out, we're pleased to open another round of AIM's favourite game show: Who is the Bulletin Board Moron of the Week!? Maybe we could start by naming the brokers who usrged folk to buy this stock? Did the Investor Chronicle tip the shares or is this the 1 China fraud it did not promote?

Notes from Underground: On fire but not getting burnt

The standout story of the week is Tom Winnifrith - the shares that are my 18 holdings: the non dirty dozen and a half which not only takes the top spot, it only went up yesterday and easily blew past every other story as it was Tweeted and passed around the bulletin boards. It can be crazy when a story catches fire like that.

Notes from Underground: Help stamp out disco in our lifetime

The first non-Tom article is #1, The explicit signs that a stockmarket crash is on its way... soon, by David Scott.

The number one story this week is General Election June 8th - Surely there is no doubt as to the outcome, there is no uncertainty now, written by one Tom Winnifrith.

The week that follows Christmas Day is the slowest of the year on ShareProphets reader views - but we'll still be here.

I don't know whether is some sort of reality avoidance action or ShareProphets readers are actual embodiments of Scrooge - a personal hero on Tom's as he has explained today HERE.

Well, well, well. The Cloudtag (#CTAG) saga has not just whipsawed through the wallets of slackjawed investors, it has upturned this weekly feature.

Well, it's time to sit back, put one's feet up, and watch how the Cloudtag events unfold. Will the company avoid the terrible fate of the death spiral?

The top 10 slowly opened up to new entrants - then boom: it's Tom all the way down. Should we talk about the fifth most read (heard?) article is the Easter Day Bearcast?

China Fraud Camkids goes onto AIM Casino Death Row – Nomad quits, shares suspended

And it is another kill for the Sheriff and Deputy Sheriff of AIM – China fraud Camkids (CAMK) is now on death row with its shares suspended as Allenby this morning quit as Nomad with immediate effect. The lying tossers at Camkids could not even tell that straight – the RNS stated “Change of adviser”. It meant, the adviser had quit as it finally accepted this was a nailed down slam dunk fraud. It gets worse.

As this site as mentioned several times, Tom Winnifrith is on a sabbatical, planning to spend time with family and write a book or two. He intends to come back in the new year.

Reader Poll – when will shares in the FRAUD Camkids be suspended?

Shares in China AIM Casino fraud Camkids (CAMK) should be suspended now. If Nomad Allenby had any decency it would quit at once.

Deadline for entries midnight tonight or the suspension time whichever is sooner:

Breaking: Camkids – If it looks like a duck, and walks like a duck……

Something just does not add up with AIM listed (pro tem) Camkids (CAMK). Tom Winnifrith and Steve Moore have already considered the credibility of yesterday’s RNS HERE and pronounced Camkids, from Fujian Province in China as a prime candidate to join the club from the Norfolk province of AIM. We’ve been looking at it from a different angle: the annual report and accounts. What we find is shocking. 

FRAUD: Camkids – an old dog with new tricks to explain how nearly ‘All the Money’s Gone’

Former ‘Investors Chronicle’ favourite AIM casino China fraud Camkids Group (CAMK) has released a more than 600 word RNS, which can be almost summed up by a 1999 song from Wolverhampton band Babylon Zoo; ‘All the Money’s Gone’… The shares are crashing and if Nomad Allenby had any integrity it would quit.
