We tipped these shares a couple of weeks ago for a third time. The shares are now 2.7p in the middle and so even at the bid we are up on this one. But our target to sell at 3.5p+ so there is more to go for. Our original share tip reads:
This evening new LEGO Energy (LGO) boss Leo Koot will host an analysts briefing in the City on the day the company changed its name to Columbus Energy (CERP). The company has upgraded its FD and a statement issued is exceedingly upbeat. For that, as a loyal shareholder, I am glad. But the statement also contains aboslute A grade corporate gibberish/bullshit. Who is responsible for what follows? Please do not say it is Leo.
Over the weekend this site explained 4 reasons why LGO shares were set to move sharply higher and soon. They are up by 9% so far today but there is a lot more to come. One thing we missed is that the new boss Leo is doing more City meetings later this week. This is flagged up in an email sent today by Andrew Monk, boss of house broker VSA. He really believes that the shares could be 20p. we shall see. Monk's email follows:
Shares in LGO Energy (LGO) have started to tick higher and closed last night at 2.5p mid - well up on our 1.8p offer price share tip of just over three weeks ago. Four things are happening and we are increasing our target price to sell from 2.7p to 3p and even that may have to be increased again. So whaat are the 4 reasons?
Well, the first non-Tom article is by me, at a lofty #4: Leavers are either nuts or hiding what they're really on about. There, I said it. To be honest, I still haven't received a satisfying answer in the comments.
LGO Energy (LGO) has announced that chairman and CEO Neil Ritson has stepped down with immediate effect to make way for Leo Koot. Leo who? He is very tall, he's Dutch, he sleeps for just two hours a night and he is massive big hitter in the world of oil. Why on earth did he go for LGO?
This is becoming routine. After hours on on Friday PrimaryBid announces a material placing opportunity for its members. This weekend it is LGO Energy (LGO) which has raised £2.2 million in a placing at 2.2p but is now offering a chance for ordinary investors to put up another £300,000 at the same price.
Yesterday we advised our readers to bank gains in LGO Energy (LGO) at a 3.9p bid - that would be a 77% gain on an offer to bid basis made in 14 days. Not bad eh? All those idiots who questioned why we tipped LGO have their answer: to make money for our readers. And that we did. The shares are now 3.7p offer. Paying customers (just £5) come first so got out at higher levels. The rationale for the take profits advice is clear - our article from behind the paywall reads:
I refer to young Steve's article earlier on the most shorted AIM shares. The fact is that most AIM shares cannot be shorted at all. There then follows a discussion on Sound Energy (SOU), Boohoo.com (BOO) and Telit (TCM). On a serarate note I look at LGO Energy (LGO). When the facts change what do you do?
Just to please our own in house pet Bulletin Board Moron Wildes who is a big holder, I am delighted to publish a note from broker VSA out today initiating its coverage of LGO Energy (LGO) at 2.45p with a 22p price target. I kid you not. VSA is house broker so chuck in a pinch/bucket load of salt but 22p? I used to know a bloke called Edward Vaughan who was a bit bonkers. I do not think that it is the same Edward Vaughan who penned this note but whatever... in its full 16 page glory
It takes two to tango or, rather, two to make a market. I am not exactly a great fan of LGO Energy (LGO) having called this as a teddy to perfection. But Andrew Monk of VSA reckons it is time to bottom fish and since I believe in free speech I am happy to publish his reasoning from his morning email.
I take a detailed look at fad investing covering the big California drone fraud but also Fitbit which had a shocking profits warning today, Fitbug (FITB) and Cloudtag (CTAG). I look at two China frauds on AIM in big doo doo, Jiasen (JSI), which is definitely a kill for the Sheriff of AIM, and Taihua (TAIH) which will be. Then I look at Torotrak (TRK), Guscio (GUSC), Greatland Gold (GGP), Andalas (ADL), Golden Saint (GSR), Amur Minerals (AMC) and finally LGO Energy (LGO)
Bulls of LGO Energy (LGO), like our own pet in house BB loon Wildes, argue that the decline in its share price is entirely down to the falling oil price and nothing whatsoever to do with the fact that it has hopeless assets in Trinidad which, however much cash is thrown at them, cannot produce enough oil to generate free cashflow. I offer you up four charts, sent in by a kind reader, which should show this in pictures, since folks like Wildes find long words a tad confusing.
Criminal Aidan Earley says thatmy work destroys great British Companies. That is what Rob Terry used to say too. What is the difference between those two fraudsters? About £50 million and so far only one has served time. I discuss Winnileaks triumphs today on Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO) and Strat Aero (AERO) and why they vindicated my work so much. Then I look at BT (BT.A), Rosslyn Data (RDT), Cloudtag (CTAG), Sunrise Resources (SRES) and LGO Energy (LGO).
In the most recent statement from LGO Energy (LGO) much was made about how the board was showing restraint at the corporate trough. Shareholders may have seen the shares collapse from 6p+ to just 0.11p but "we are all in it together". Nope! This is a smokescreen.
I have loaded the photos of pressing the olives from the Greek Hovel HERE. There may not be a bearcast tomorrow as I am about to start travelling soon. Today I look at LGO Energy (LGO), Milestone Group (MSG) and its CEO Deborah White who has committed market abuse and should be fired, Strat Aero (AERO), Fox Marble (FOX), Golden Saint (GSR) where I suggest a rule change is needed at AIM to deal with share dumping parasites like PR genius Steffi, and Proxama (PROX).
Having ramped its shares up to 0.15p by pretending that the refinacing of its bank debt was by anything other than a death spiral and with some huffy puffy claptrap about new drilling, LGO Energy (LGO) got back to what it does best today, a placing to dilute yet again.
Shares in LGO Energy (LGO) have raced ahead by 33% to just over 0.14p on news that the company has signed up to a new uber expensive death spiral. Truly some folks just do not get why death spirals are called death spirals. But every cloud has a silver lining: the cash means that LGO can repay French banksters BNP Paribas.
Loons, like our very own LGO Energy (LGO) owning fanatic Wildes, will have yesterday celebrated news that 11,200 barrels of Spanish oil which had accumulated over the summer had finally been sold. But shares in LGO still fell to just 0.11p. Here's why.
I almost feel sorry for LGO Energy (LGO) CEO Neil Ritson. He just seems to have rotten luck. This time last year a contractor dropped some kit down a bore hole. Wind on 12 months and Hurricane Matthew has caused a few "problemos". Neil, put a few extra quid in the collection box this Sunday, you need the Almighty back on side for today's third quarter update is piss poor and begs the statement "placing ahoy."
The world still hates small oil stocks. We are not sure when that will change but given how many of the mid caps are collapsing either entirely (Afren) or surviving only via schemes that see shareholders almost wiped out ( XCite, Gulfsands, Gulf Keystone, IGAS, LGO, etc, etc) we feel we could be at a Burmah Castrol moment. Do a google search if you are too young to understand the reference!
Hapless Neil Ritson of LGO Energy (LGO) is doing yet another ramptastic interview with BRR Media, the company that charges PLCs who want to ramp worthless shares to record interviews with easy questions. The webinar is at 11 AM on Friday and has asked that questions be sent over to email@example.com. I am a nice guy and always keen to help so here are 25 for starters:
I wish Andrew Monk a happy wedding anniversary today but surely his fragrant wife should have got time off for good behaviour. But Monk is wrong on Aquatic Foods (AFG) it is a Norfolk, its interims out today make that 100% clear and I explain why. I note the suspension of Asian Citrus (ACHL) and I pose a new challenge to LGO Energy (LGO) about output and sales numbers which really do not add up. I look at RapidCloud (RCI) whose interims suggest a terminal conclusion and Zincox (ZOX) where a pompous chairman seems in denial about the grim outcome that lies ahead.
Last week LGO Energy (LGO) had a keep the lights on placing at 0.1p, just four months after the prior keep the lights on placing at 0.2p. As I noted today, the next keep the lights on placing will be at 0.05p and within two months. But it is good to see that a company that is spunking £150,000 a month to money heaven still has spare cash for important things...
Half year numbers from LGO Energy (LGO) are absolutely appalling. There was a placing at just 0.1p last week, another one is imminent. The numbers just do not lie. It is hard to know where to start but lets go with output and sales....do you remember when LGO used to be producing 2,500 bopd and promising 4,000 bopd: how things change.
On today's bearcast I look at Jiasen (JSI) but have to speak quietly since Oakley may get the wrong idea when I discuss a dead cat bounce. I also cover Xtract Resources (XTR), Obtala (OBT), Corero (CNS), Toople (TOOP), GCM Resources (GCM) and in some detail LGO Energy (LGO)
It was about a year ago that I had a spat with my good pal Big Dave Lenigas when he denied my assertion that LGO Energy (LGO) was about to place. Naturally it did. As I have indicated in recent weeks that another bailout blizzard of confetti was on the way there was not even an attempt to deny from camp LGO this time around. I have oft suggested that the next bailout would be at 0.1p. Just call me mystic fucking Meg please...
So what if LGO has been drowning in debt, breaching banking covenants, have to get away placing after placing just to keep the lights on, let's ensure that vital corporate expenditure is not reduced. Sod drilling oil wells to increase output...this is how Neil Ritson spunked a quarter of a million of shareholder's cash in April 2015
I take my hat off to Neil Ritson, the hapless CEO of LGO Energy (LGO), as he does not seem keen to disclose more information about how his company is doing. Unfortunately the information is underwhelming and as the company's cash runs out and the next bailout placing looms the shares are set to head only one way. And it is not up.
Oh dear Oh dear, things are looking ever bleaker for Neil Ritson and AIM dog with fleas LGO Energy (LGO). Interims out next month will be diabolical, the cash position by now is looking grimmer than a wet Thursday in Scunthorpe and ramptastic announcements are just not having any impact on the share price, surely it is time to bring back Big Dave Lenigas. Cometh the day and all that.
It is of course Bastille Day and that, of course, prompts a few jokes at the expense of the Froggies. I then move into Gulf Keystone (GKP) and a spot of moron baiting and working out moron investing game theory. I then move to a detailed look at Digital Globe (DGS) before covering en passant XCite (XEL), LGO Energy (LGO), Trinity (TRIN), Circle Oil (COP), Premier Oil (PMO), IGAS (IGAS) and Nostra Terra (NTOG). I also comment on Glenwick (GWIK), 88 Energy (88E), Strat Aero (AERO) and Inspirit Energy (INSP)
For months and months Trinity Exploration (TRIN) has been in default on loans taken out with Citibank. Investors who declined to sell the worthless shares seemed to believe the truism that "If you owe the bank $1 you are in trouble, if you owe $1 million the bank is in trouble" as Citibank - which was actually owed $13 million declined to pull the plug. Until today. Instead of the normal weekly rollover announcement we are told:
During the past few weeks, I have received a few tweets from someone with the Twitter handle @CraftyOLegit accusing me of writing anti-LGO Energy (LGO) stories on ShareProphets or on various bulletin boards. I tweeted back the first time saying he had me confused with someone else and ignored the rest...
Some naughty, naughty chappies appear to have taped the entire AGM of LGO Energy (LGO) on Monday. You naughty, naughty boys. Transparency for an AIM listed PLC. Whatever next? This is political correctness gone mad. If Neil finds out who is responsible he will get his favourite PR genius Steffi to spank bottoms at once. I digress lets go 14 minutes and 30 seconds into the recording...
Yesterday's holiday snap from Getafix generated 17 possible captions. The most innacurate, from Backwoodsman, suggested that Malcolm burying his cash in the ground might be his worst investment decision. No way. Surely buying LGO shares was worse. At least there is a slim chance of getting your cash back out of the hole. But Backwoodsman also served up the winner. You can see all 17 entries HERE. Today Malcolm's snap suggests the old rogue has got very lucky. Do your worst.
Jeepers, if turd polishing was an olympic sport Neil Ritson of LGO Energy (LGO) would be battling for a place, after so much practice he has acqusired a certain skill. But a turd is - however polished - still a turd and that brings us to the statement today from POS LGO.
Announcing your annual results at 1.38 PM ensures that some folks will miss the horrors you reveal. London's most useless Nomad, Mr Roland "fatty" Cornish will just be starting course two of four and so will not be back at his desk until the next trading day. So there is some point in sneaking out the bad news in the middle of the day. And that brings me to the trainwreck with Neil Ritson at the wheel, but David Lenigas driving from the back seat, LGO Energy (LGO).
LGO Energy (LGO) should be publishing the year end accounts for 2015 within the next week. If the accounts are audited we will probably see LGO declaring an operating loss of between £10-15 million. I have not seen any analysts expectations so its hard to assess how the market will react to this.
Hat tip to reader Steve but it seems as if Neil Ritson of LGO Energy (LGO) is talking with forked tongue. I refer to what is - or is not - happing at its dog of a Spanish operation.
And so today, Circle Oil (COP) has admitted what anyone with half a brain cell could have figured, that it is officially toast. The question is which of the drowning in debt oil mid caps or large E&Ps will be next to fess up? There is an RNS from Gulf Keystone (GKP) today saying its bondhoders have given it another 11 days but could it be overtaken by XCite (XEL), whose shares are sliding as the clock ticks? Other oilcos in breach of loans include Trinity Exploration (TRIN) and LGO Energy (LGO) while the yield on IGAS debt suggests it is in the merde. So who will be next to admit it's toast, to use either the word "administration" or the phrase "little or no value for shareholders". Voting deadline is midnight tonight.
There is so much delightful (for we bears) symmetry between LGO Energy (LGO) and Andalas (ADL) as both sink to a level where flippers in the recent placings must now take a loss. Right down to the CEOs both having facial hairs. It is uncanny and the subject of this podcast which also makes general points about stocks where the share price dips below a placing price in short order. It is all about human psychology.
I’m a bit confused: how can you sell down your holding and at the same time increase your % interest all at the same time? Well, I guess that’s pretty complicated stuff and best left to the professionals.
Yup I am still clean and 99.9% of the time very glad to be. But I know that if I have just one fag it will be all over. So I will not. I digress. Today's podcast covers my little internet difficulties here in Kambos then goes onto Aureus Mining (AUE), Circle Oil (COP), IGAS (IGAS), LGO Energy (LGO) and Gulf Keystone (GKP). Finally I urge regular listener Marcus Stuttard, head of the oxymorons at AIM Regulation, to read the utterly shocking Phil Edmonds and Andrew Groves tale HERE as it shows what a shite job the bogus Sheriff is doing.
I shall put the photo up later on TomWinnifrith.com but this is the first snake of the current greek trip - day 6 and one down!. I am a modest man, as you know, but feel that I have little to be modest about in saying that this really is a most excellent podcast covering Nostra Terra (NTOG), Avanti Communications (AVN) and a new lawyers letter,, Outsourcery (OUT) and LGO Energy (LGO) all in some detail.
It has been suggested by Duck & Dive and repeated by other poltroons on LGO Energy (LGO) Bulletin Boards, that in my last article it was unfair to 'confuse' reactivations with re-completions as it is a case of drawing conclusions about the depletion rates of apples with the depletion rates of oranges. In answer to this criticism, I would stress firstly, that it was Neil Ritson who framed the terms in which he sought to demonstrate that wells in the Goudron Sandstone deplete slowly. I will quote him again.
In reflective mood on election day I cover just a few companies. Falanx (FLX) where we backed the placing and the shares have tanked! LGO Energy (LGO) where the morons were spoofed and death is postponed, Centrica where shareholders are paying for CEO crack, that is debt addiction and Feedback (FDBK) which seems like a rum and coke to me. I also cover, en passant, Conroy after getting a pleasant ambush, but an ambush none the less, post dentists, from Ireland.
LGO Energy (LGO) shareholders have a habit of taking every production figure that LGO releases and reasoning their way a priori to envelope that figure within a schema of general conventional oil production far into the distant future without factoring in the overwhelming rates of depletion at the field. Essentially this is a wilful ignoring of the empirical evidence of decline. This falls squarely within Einstein's definition of insanity as making the same set of assumptions over and over again and expecting different results.
As we know, having failed to get away a £6 million placing a few weeks ago (raising just £1.3 million) LGO Energy (LGO) will not be able to make its scheduled bank repayment in May and so faces another insolvency risk. Hence it is ramping for all its worth to issue yet more confetti, now that it had permissions to issue 1.6 billion more shares. And thus today's pitiful release below. It is what hapless CEO Neil Ritson does NOT say that matters.
This bearcast and your newsletter are late for a range of reasons including my sickness; taking the Mrs to start a 3 AM journey to fill impressionable young minds in Finland with lefty nonsense; dealing with Bill Bloody Gates; morons from the Walsall Shit Hole and also Bodie, Doyle & Cowley, The Professionals. In the podcast itself I cover Watchstone (WTG), Rosslyn Data (RDT), Fitbug (FITB), Rose Petroleum (ROSE), SeaEnergy (SEA), UK Oil & Gas (UKOG) and in great detail LGO Energy (LGO). I urge you to read the piece today on SP Angel. Read it carefully my friends!
We were meant to record a video. In fact we did record but something went wrong and the Conservative Club with its cheap beer beckoned. And thus the video short letter appears as a contemporaneous note.
It rather seems to have passed folks by but having failed to raise £6 million in a placing he masterminded a month ago (as leaked emails show HERE), Jabba The Hutt is still determined to see dilution on an unprecedented scale - even by his standards - at LGO Energy (LGO). There is an EGM on Monday 18 April.
Ascent (AST) admitted to a bid approach on Thursday and we own the shares (pro tem). I really do not wish to discourage morons from ramping this to high heaven but feel obliged to point out that those who could make us better off are, in fact, morons (HERE). Do you understand what I am saying? All I suggest is that Ascent boards will be happy hunting grounds if you wish to nominate for this Bulletin Board Moron contest. For instance, with the shares at 1.05p having doubled on Thursday, can you beat this tweet?
Due to the huge interest in my UK INvestor Show session "Why David Lenigas should be drummed off AIM forever" we are now miving this session to the main auditorium on April 30 2016. I would not want anyone to miss out. And if you needed further evidence of why the case is such a slam dunk here is a tweet from 48 hours ago:
A short bearcast as I am set to fly back to the UK soon. Shame, shame. I start with earnings visibility looking at Gable (GAH) and Asian Citrus (ACHL). One is a shite investment the other is going down the pan completely. Then it is onto LGO Energy (LGO) which, with the curse of Lenigas, is in the latter category. I explain why BP rumours are just bollocks.
LGO has been flagging that this would happen for months but now that the royalty rates on Goudron have been cut, Neil Ritson is announcing the news as if it was the second coming of Jesus. It is not. For starters Jesus would struggle to find three wise men and a virgin to welcome him at any company associated with David Lenigas. This company is still screwed and more confetti issues are ineviable ahead of its next formal debt repayment default in May.
Yesterday as LGO Energy (LGO) raised £1.36 million gross, I published the emails showing how David Lenigas stated that the company needed £5-6 million to turn around. Even that was a lie predicated on silly output projections, but on the sums raised LGO is just fucked, it has merely postponed crunch time from April ( 2-3 weeks) to May, lets call it 7 weeks.
In a wide ranging podcast today I cover: 88 Energy (88E), Verona Pharma (VRP), LGO Energy (LGO), UK Oil & Gas (UKOG), Solo Oil (SOLO), the woes of Jabba The Hutt, Wandisco (WAND), Stilo (STL) and Jiasen (JSI) and I offer you a severe warning about uber-ramped Challenger Acquisitions (CHAL) where its a real PLACING AHOY
LGO Energy (LGO) has announced that it has raised £1.36 million in a placing at 0.25p and also that contractors have agreed to take payment of £590,000 of debts at the same price. This is a disastrous snub from the London Markets to David Lenigas as it was he who led this attempted bailout and mug punters were being promised a £5 million raise as you can see in leaked email correspondence below. Neil Ritson the hapless CEO of LGO admits that this is not enough, stating in the release:
Five days ago we revealed that David Lenigas himself was trying to arrange a £5 million bailout placing for insolvent LGO Energy (LGO) which would see Jabba go back on the board and hapless CEO Neil Ritson pushed into the long grass a couple of months later. We have emails from broker Dowgate to potential investors explaining Jabba's plans and saying that the placing would close well before the end of last week. There has been no RNS. Clearly - and not surprisingly - the placement is struggling big time and so LGO has today released ramptastic bollocks from Goudron to try to spoof punters into backing the bailout.
This morning LGO Energy (LGO) admitted that US investors were - after all - not going to spunk $20 million on bailing out the debt ridden, AIM listed disaster story. I can reveal that a plan B is now underway. Jabba The Hutt is back in town...
In the race to 0p who will win? After today's statement FastJet (FJET) is in the running as is LGO Energy (LGO), PetroCeltic and XCite Energy (XEL) which also had news today. I also look at Plethora (PLE) and the idea of something which is too good to be true. Then I move onto Richard.Chase@Nyotaminerals.com - if you have not emailed the greedy useless mother yet PLEASE DO SO NOW. I offer up a suggested form of wording for your email. Warning/ Bad language alert.
And yet again the Bulletin Board Morons take something of a battering because they thought they knew better. This time it is - essentially bankrupt - Petroceltic (PCI), shares in which have this morning been suspended pending clarification. Ooops a daisy.
After yesterday's dire news from LGO Energy (LGO) which saw its shares slump to 0.31p the case of Tom Winnifrith vs David Leni-Maths continies and I now bring you another piece of evidence, possibly the worst broker note in history. Analyst Barney Gray at Old Park Lane was either on crack cocaine when he penned this classic back on 21 February 2012 or he was simply writing exactly what the share ramper David Lenigas told him to write. My guess is that it was the latter as Old Park was joint corporate broker at the time. Anyhow, Barney told us that the shares were a buy at 1.2p with a 5p target. But it is what he says in this nonsense that is of real import.
The unacceptable face of capitalism, Mr David Lenigas, can ramp LGO Energy (LGO), the company that paid him almost £1.8 million over 7 years to help buy his 100 foot yacht, as much as the fat liar wants but a statement today makes it clear just how fucked LGO is and that its position is getting worse rapidly.
You see a share price falling despite your ramping what do you do if you are Jabba The Hutt, David Lenigas, the unnacceptable face of capitalism? You open up your laptop on your 100 foot yacht in the Monaco tax haven and tweet out some lies. David Lenigas you are a liar. I invite you to sue me for libel for calling you a liar. You will not because here is (more) slam dunk proof that you are a liar. Here are some lies you told about LGO Energy (LGO) - target price 0p - with the past 24 hours.
Warning: The podcast contains both bad language and also a lot of abuse directed at Australians.I start with the guys who run Slater & Gordon and accept that they can't be thrown to saltwater crocs who have not eaten since Christmas. shame. Its all down to geography. I then move onto the liar David Lenigas, Rare Earth Minerals (REM) and LGO Energy (LGO). Then to Bingo Bango Bongo (BGO) WTF is going on? Petroceltic (PCI) - the new Afren in every respect - and then to 4D Pharma (DDDD), Finally I dwell on the spectre of mass unemployment in certain sectors in China, the UK and the USA and what it means.
I start with Jimmy Savile as I have no apologies for running this yesterday.The BBC enquiry is just another establishment cover up and I explain why. Then it is onto investor denial at Petroceltic (PCI), not at Premaitha (NIPT), but at LGO Energy (LGO). I explain why Volex (VLX) is - and always will be - a shit company. Then I ask Rob Terry and Knob Park to unblock me on twitter as we should all have an online beer and popcorn party late on Sunday when Slater & Gordon (SGH) reports its results. I'll be up to do a special podcast and it will be fun. I hope you'll be joining me and that Rob will unblock me so he can take part too. There is also a brief comment on Nyota (NYO) where the piggery by a useless CEO is about to stop.
The unnacceptable face of capitalism, Mr David Lenigas, is today ramping shares in LGO Energy (LGO), spoofing the army of lobotomy patients that appear to follow him, into buying the shares, with his own peanuts purchase. The shares are now 0.33p as these poor fools are parted from their hard earned savings, as they are played, spoofed, by the fat Aussie share promoter.
There is an RNS out from LGO Energy (LGO) which is being spun as a triumph. It is not. The shares are up 37% today (so just 90% down on the IPO) but I systematically expose the truly bad news LGO is fessing up to. David Lenigas is - as you can see - on twitter having a go at me. Like his tobacco smuggling pal Yusuf Kajee he plays on the suicide of my mother, implying again that I have mental health issues. I do not, but Mr Lenigas will see his soul burn in hell. He is shameless and all folks with any conscience will just refuse to have anything to do with him.
The silence from doomed LGO Energy (LGO) is ominous. There is not even an attempt to ramp the shares ahead of a bucket shop placing because the bucket shops cannot write the sort of cheque this POS needs to survive. I doubt anyone can or will which is why my target price for the shares remains 0p. As I get the beer & popcorn ready for the final act (the death scene) here are 5 questions for hapless CEO Neil Ritson.
LGO Energy (LGO) owning lunatic Wildes responds to yesterday's damning indictment of the David Lenigas created value destroying machine by saying that it was all down to the oil price and BP (BP.) was no better. In this podcasts I give the hard facts that show that Wildes is just wrong and explain why BP is an investment and is good news for all concerned while LGO is just a crap gambling chip which gains no-one other than the man exposed HERE, Jabba The Hutt.
I noted today that the ability of the (value) Wrecking Crew that is David Lenigas and associated gophers at Polemos was dire and I doubted if anyone could do worse (see HERE). But a kind reader has managed to find an even more disastrous investment made by Jabba The Hutt using - natch - other folks cash. Let's wind back to 2008 and LGO Energy (LGO), then called Lenigas & Oil.
Unlike yesterday's podcast this was recorded before lunchtime and, anyway, I am staying sober until after my presentation tonight when I might be less sober. Still there is a good deal of bad language in the Bearcast as I do a concluding section on Bulletin Board Morons in denial with reference on this occasion to Servision (SEV). I also cover more market abuse at Frontier Resources (FRI) as well as Independent Resources (IRG), Plexus (POS), LGO Energy (LGO) and Fusionex (FXI) - reference director's dealings.
I showed quite clearly yesterday that the latest investor presentation given by Neil Ritson, the hapless CEO of LGO Energy (TOAST) was misleading. Now I move on to show that this is not a one-off, this company - whose shares are worth 0p - has serious "form."
An RNS from LGO Energy (LGO) late yesterday announces that hapless CEO Neil Ritson is presenting at yet another conference in Trinidad. Boy that guy must have some air miles. The presentation which you can download HERE is truthful but misleading in respect to the calamitous decline in output. I refer you to page 2 which is below. This is a shocker.
I warn you that this podcast contains bad language from the start as I discuss how - as a customer - I hate BT (BT.A) with a passion. I then move onto China Norfolk Taihua (TAIH), a brief Jabba the Hutt section on Solo Oil (SOLO) and LGO Energy (LGO) and a look at SeaEnergy (SEA). Oil disasters dominate the fallers and in that vein I cover Petroceltic (PCI), MX Oil (MXO), Iofina (IOF), Magnolia Petroleum (MAGP), Bahamas Petroleum (BPC) and Range Resources (RRL). I also have a butchers at the fun and games at Altona (ANR).
The weekend news from the oil sector is grim. I am not sure that folks out there in, what Malcolm Stacey might term, punterland realise just how grim it is. There is a massive PR and IR industry supporting the proposition that things can only get better. Au contraire, for the next few months at least, they are going to get a lot worse. And in that spirit I offer up a list of eleven oil E&Ps to sell now, to get out what and while you can, as they could well hit zero.
LGO Energy (LGO) has all sorts of problems. It is almost out of cash, it is burning cash, it is drowning in debt and it has a management credibility issue. But its real problem? Its assets in Trinidad are shite. The company has never come clean on how rapidly new wells go into decline but here is the raw data and it is pretty terrifying. It is based on RNS releases for each of its Goudron wells.
Featuring shares in Aminex (AEX), Forbidden Technologies (FBT), Falkland Oil & Gas (FOGL), LGO Energy (LGO) and Rockhopper Exploration (RKH) with share price targets set for all five stocks.
Jabba The Hutt cannot help himself. Having pompously blathered on about how we all need to be responsible when using social media the fat Aussie has today shown himself (again) to be utterly irresponsible or worse. This time the rampfest is LGO Energy (LGO). Jabba tweets:
I start by explaining to Zak Mir what a dead cat bounce actually means. That brings me to Golden Saint Resources (GSR). Then there is a detailed analysis of the worthless POS that is Magnolia Petroleum (MAGP), comment on why Wildes is so wrong on LGO Energy (TOAST), on Sports Direct (SDI), Premaitha (NIPT) and finally on Games Workshop (GAW) and Mysale (MYSL). I also continue pointing out why lunatics like George Ferguson the barking mad Mayor of Bristol, only serve to make retail stocks even more of an avoid.
I could not sleep last night so spent several hours looking at filings by Alibaba (US:BABA), the world's largest IPO. They seem red flag strewn and I would have this one down as a slam dunk sell for 2016. There will be more on this to follow but I am just putting a marker in the sand. Back in the UK I look at Gulf Keystone (GKP), African Potash (AFPO) and LGO Energy (LGO)
This company is on the precipice. It needs to raise £5-6 million in emergency equity to keep going and everything is going against it. The best case for LGO Energy (LGO) is mega dilution from whatever is a confetti issuing machine, but an equally plausible outcome is insolvency.
Sorry that material appeared late on this website today. I was out last night at a play on Christopher Street which some of you may well know well - that explains one part of the headline. Elsewhere I look at interims from Daniel Stewart (DAN) which is just a plain farce. Then onto Afriag (AFRI) and the attempted bribe and LGO Energy (LGO) the two Jabba The Hutt plays. Fraudster Rob Terry was a big fan of Daniel Stewart and also of Imaginatik (IMTK) which I discuss. Fitbug (FITB) is mentioned as - in more detail - is Scancell (SCLP) which seems to be pump priming for a placing.
Today's edition comes from the banks of the Ottawa River in the bucolic Gatineau region of Canada. Unusually for this date, there is no snow and the river is unfrozen. Ciimate change denier Tom Winnifrith will probably put the blame on Canadian pot-smokers warming the air in anticipation of looming legalisation.
The biggest problem that LGO Energy (LGO) faces, other than still not fessing up fully to misleading investors (Leni-lying-gate) and hurtling towards administration unless it can secure a bailout placing and an oil price which is so low that it can't generate cash and having fields which suffer such sharp declines in output that they make no sense, is the association with toxic Aussie share ramper David Lenigas. It tried to distance itsself from Jabba The Hutt by changing its name from Leni Gas & Oil..but er...
Two days ago I accused LGO Energy (LGO) of misleading investors big time - HERE. Today, when it thinks no-one is watching, it has put out a grovelling correction but someone is still lying. Neil Ritson you useless little shit another correction is still needed.
Cripes there is so much entertainment provided by the clowns who run shite companies on the AIM casino. Where do I start? This podcast covers Mosman Oil & Gas (MSMN), Rapidcloud (RCI), Arian Silver (AGQ), Concha (CHA), Rosslyn Data (RDT), LGO Energy (LGO), Fastjet (FJET), Afriag (TOAST), UK Oil & Gas (JOKE), Jiasen (FRAUD), Nostra Terra Oil & Gas (NTOG) and Independent Resources (IRG).
I will now demonstrate how LGO Energy (LGO) appears to have mislead investors in a cavalier and wilful fashion on a very material transaction and fund raise in 2014. It appears to have breached AIM Rule 11 flagrantly but does anyone care any more? Is the Sheriff of AIM the only person left who actually reads the AIM Rule book and takes it seriously?
Jabba The Hutt quit all five AIM Casino boards he sat on today. In this podcast I reveal the events of the weekend and discuss why he may have left. I warn him that the Nationals are on his case and so smearing me will be ever more pointless. And then I look at actions of the Bulletin Board morons who are still in denial. And finally at what this means for the Jabba stable. It is bad news. The best bet for near term zeros are Afriag (AFRI) and Evocutis (EVO) but Rare Earth Minerals (REM), Inspirit (INSP), Solo Oil (SOLO) and LGO Energy (LGO) are also all slam dunk sells as I explain.
Featuring shares in Churchill Mining (CHL), Egdon Resources (EDR), Falkland Oil & Gas (FOGL), Frenkel Topping Group (FEN) and LGO Energy (LGO) with share price targets for all five stocks.
This podcast ends with an apology to Doc Holiday. I am happy to set the record straight on which shit Patrick Cheetham stock he tipped and which was a Malcolm Stacey blunder. We start with another request for ideas on what I should get the Mrs for Christmas and thanks Mike from Scotland but it is not going to be a boob job. Then it is onto the disgrace that is African Potash (AFPO), Bonmarche (BON), retail generally, nasty remarks about Americans, Work Group (WORK) and today's Jabba The Hutt comment concerns LGO Energy (LGO)
Featuring shares in Concha (CHA), Falkland Oil & Gas (FOGL), Iofina (IOF), LGO Energy (LGO) and Sable Mining (SBLM) with share price targets for all five stocks.
Heck if you are a shareholder in a Jabba The Hutt company they might even work for you. I am on new prescription pills and flying. In today's podcast I cover LGO Energy (LGO), tiouch on Afriag (AFRI) and then InternetQ (INTQ) more on that tomorrow, target price 0p. There is a detailed look at Audioboom (BOOM) and a look at Circle Oil (COP) and Tribal (TRB) which have a lot in common with 3 big name zeros I call out in the latest UK Investor Show magazine out today HERE . Finally a look at Tertiary Minerals (TYM) and Concha (CHA)
Well there is a shock. The LGO Energy (LGO) 2014 annual report was simply wrong in stating that David Lenigas had sold enough shares to go below 3% - naughty, naughty Neil Ritson, but I guess that is the least of your sins. For today Jabba The Hutt announced that he owned 154 million shares.
Yes I have indeed done just that, or I think I have. The olive harvest saga continues and the snow has started on the mountains above the Greek Hovel, pictures later. In this podcast I look at Jabba The Hutt ramping Afriag (AFRI) and warn you what will happen next. Then a comment on LGO Energy (LGO) before heading onto PeerTV (PTV) and - in an unusual manner - I cover ValiRx (VAL). You see Satu I am a man of my word, Halosource (HALO) gets "the treatment" as does Gary Newman for buying into corporate bullshit speak. Then it is onto Photosntar Led (PSL), Fitbug (FITB) and finally InternetQ (INTQ).
Featuring shares in 88 Energy (88E), Cloudbuy (CBUY), Independent Oil & Gas (IOG), LGO Energy (LGO), San Leon Energy (SLE) and Westminster Group (WSG) with share price targets for all five stocks.
I seem to be struggling to do business with my olives here in Kambos, Greece. I appear to have sold the oil - all bar 16 litres which I am taking back to the UK. But so far I have paid the press 16 Euro for the transaction which now sees it owning 200 litres of MY oil. Surely this is not right? Perhaps InternetQ (INTQ) runs the olive press? In this podcast I also cover LGO Energy (LGO) just to keep Wildes happy - Jabba the Hutt fave Rare Earth Minerals (REM) and European Metals (EMH), Concha (CHA), Tern (TERN), Imaginatik (IMTK), Peer TV (PTV) and the looming debacle at Chris Oil fave Mkango Resources.
In this presentation from Gold & Bears I posed 12 questions that Jabba the Hutt will not answer. I then ran through the Lenigas portfolio explaining why you should sell shares in each of: LGO Energy (LGO), Rare Earth Minerals (REM), UK Oil & Gas (UKOG), Inspirit (INSP), Lenigas Cuba (CUBA), Evocutis (EVO), Solo Oil (SOLO) and AfriAg (AFRI). Enjoy...
Yesterday I asked you to identify the odd one out in the four pictures below: The England Rugby team, David Lenigas, Market-makers Winterfloods and the City Nomads, brokers and PRs celebrating at their annual Christmas party and YOU ALL GOT IT WRONG but there were some good answers anyway HERE.
The pain killers are really starting to kick in and so I must warn you that this podcast contaions some bad language. Well quite a lot of bad language actually. On the agenda are the delusional fantasists who are running both Rose Petroleum (ROSE) and Condor Gold (CNR) into the ground. There is an apology on LGO Energy (LGO) but its shares, down again today, are still toast - I discuss what a strategic review means and why Bulletin Board morons are just so blinkered...they are in love you see. Then it is onto Iofina (IOF), Quoram (QRM), InternetQ (INTQ) and the dog Fitbug (FITB)
In today's podcast I update you all on the olive harvest - I managed four hours in the fields today despite still being in real pain. But not as much as LGO Energy (LGO) - its RNS today smells of desperation. For strategic review read "the game is up" and that also applies to Kolar Gold (KGLD). I comment on Avanti Communications (AVN) where the share price crumble is accelerating - remember debt is crack cocaine for management but for shareholders it is bad for your wealth. I comment on Silver Falcon (SILF) and tick off the grossly irresponsible, Justin the Clown of ADVFN and also on Defenx (DFX), rapidly becoming an IPO omnishambles. Then onto InternetQ (INTQ) where it is now "game on" but I end with Antrim Energy (AEY) where a concert party of Brokerman Dan, market abuser Chris OIl and ADVFN (AFN) head honcho Clem Chambers have just taken a 3% stake.
Despite Jabba The Hutt tweeting like mad about how cheap shares in LGO Energy (LGO) are, they have crashed again today and are now just 0.15p to sell. Ouch. Only 0.15p to go. In honour of this we have a new odd one out contest. Simply say which of the four pictures below is the odd one out and why.
I refer not to InternetQ (INTQ) of which a lot more later but to an accident I suffered when picking olives this morning. I am in real pain. I know how it feels to be a shareholder in LGO Energy (LGO) which I discuss. In today's podcast I also cover Northern Petroleum (NOP), Hardide (HDD) - in grisly detail - Hunter Resources (HUN) and take Nigel's excellent weekend piece on China New Energy (CNEL) further - this just stinks. Talking of China and Norfolk, I also note the news today from JQW (JQW). Finally I question the RNS from Forbidden Technology (FBT)
You were not spoofed by Neil Ritson and his puppetmaster Jabba The Hutt, aka fat Aussie share ramper David Lenigas, into thinking that today's news means that LGO Energy (LGO) is going to attract a bid were you? Oh dear. It is not going to happen. Let me explain.
In this podcast I discuss OPEC and the oil price. I think you should have some oil exposure via BP (BP.A) and I am intyerested in a couple of gas plays, notably Ascent (AST). But I remain uber bearish on oil juniors as I have been (correctly) for four years. Among those heading for zero which I discuss are Gulf Keystone (GKP), Xcite Energy (XEL), IGAS (IGAS), Mosman Oil & Gas (MSMN), Northern Petroleum (NOP) and LGO Energy (LGO). And there are others take may not hit zero within a year but which still face share price decimation such as Solo (SOLO) and the Horse Shite/ Horse Hill Gatwick Gusher plays.
No Albanians, no work on the olive harvest yet. And now Vrechi, that is what I fear. I have yet to discuss my entanglements with Globo (GBO) and InternetQ (INTQ) with my neighbours but I am sure they will understand. I start the podcast on InternetQ and the weedy rally today. Then it is onto LGO Energy (LGO), another David Lenigas triumph. But what does Jabba The Hutt care? He sold his shares. En passant I mention UK Oil & Gas (UKOG), Motive TV (MTV) and Papua Minerals (PML) before taking a detailed look at Escher (ESCH).
I make this two confetti issues by floundering LGO Energy (LGO) in the three months since Jabba The Hutt, aka David Lenigas, dissed me on twitter for saying a placing was inevitable. The bad news is that there is a far larger share issue still needed. The good news, for the fat Aussie share ramper at least, is that he sold most of his LGO shares (if not all) last year without disclosing it as he should have done. So it is not his problem.
The annual ritual is complete. The Mrs and I have photographed my morbidly obese three legged cat Oakley in his Christmas hat and even Tara played her part posing in the hat and in a stocking. And thus our rather un-Christian cards are now in production. Awway from that I have a long look at Slater & Gordon (SGH) where the management has just allowed the bears a chance to sell even more shares. Jabba The Hutt stocks Solo (SOLO) and LGO Energy (LGO) get a mention as does Aureus Mining (AUE) with its hugely discounted placing. Alba (ALBA) is clearly lining up its next confetti issue and I comment on that as well as Blur (BLUR), Outsourcery (OUT), Wandisco (WAND), Plant Health Care (PHC), Gulf Keystone (GKP) and NAHL (NAH), Finally I commend the CEO of ValiRx (VAL) who attended Gold & Bears on Saturday and was incredibly poilite. Memo to TW. I will be less beastly to her in 2016.
Featuring shares in 88 Energy (88E), Independent Oil & Gas (IOG), Inspirit Energy (INSP), Kefi Minerals (KEFI), LGO Energy (LGO) and Oxus Gold (OXS) wth share price targets for all six stocks.
Call it a dead cat bounce. Shares in LGO Energy (LGO) have bounced to 0.5p on news that the bank is not pulling the plug so it is not bust. Yet. Jabba the Hutt, aka David Lenigas, still refuses to saw when he sold most of his shares but it was a good call by Big Dave to get out when he did because the outlook is still grim.
Featuring shares in Alba Mineral Resources (ALBA), China New Energy (CNEL), Cap-XX (CPX), Kennedy Ventures (KENV), LGO Energy (LGO) and UK Oil & Gas (UKOG) with share price targets for all these minnows.
Hat tip to twitter follower @Terryfwit1 for flagging up a fascinating new section on the LGO Energy (LGO) website – Q&A. It displays clear signs that CEO Neil Ritson is trying to distance himself from David Lenigas over his share dealing i.e. selling)..
In six days’ time at Gold & Bears I shall be posing 12 questions for fat Aussie share ramper Jabba the Hutt and explaining why every stock associated with the man is a slam dunk sell. But as I sit here on Flatbush Avenue Brooklyn here is a teaser for Big Dave. What do our readers think Leni Gas & Oil is?
I’ve had an interesting discussion with our stalwart reader Wildrides on my recent 88 Energy piece (88E). Cut a long story short Wildrides has made a number of comments on pieces I’ve written pointing out the obvious flaws in the businesses I’ve covered. Wildrides and I swap the odd email, so I do know his real name. He is an experienced investor and someone whose opinion I respect, but our recent exchange has left me wondering; does AIM make thieves of us all?
Featuring shares in David Lenigas (pictured left) donkeys: Afriag (AFRI), Inspirit Energy (INSP), LGO Energy (LGO), Rare Earth Minerals (REM), UK Oil & Gas (UKOG)
It seems to be open season on David "Green Hair Services" Lenigas (pictured left). Today top broker Andrew Monk of VSA Resources who is a mega bull of lithium has taken Rare Earth Minerals (REM) and Bacanora Minerals (BCN) off his buy list just because of the Lenigas factor. And he has also stuck the knife into jabba the hutt, notably on UK Oil & Gas (UKOG). Mr Monk writes:
It is suggested by some who still believe in David Lenigas that he has not in fact sold any shares in LGO Energy (LGO) while telling us all how cheap they were but has merely shifted stock into Nominee accounts. Sorry folks that does not wash. Dave & LGO Energy MUST answer in public the questions posed HERE. The facts are simple.
I hope that his PR man does not beat me up for saying this but David Lenigas appears to have made millions of pounds from selling shares in LGO Energy (LGO) – despite constantly tweeting how cheap the shares were – and appears not to have notified AIM of those share sales.
Featuring shares in Argos Resources (ARG), Castle Street Investments (CSI), Coms (COMS), LGO Energy (LGO), New World Oil & Gas (NEW), Stratex International (STI), together with some share price targets
One good turn deserves another and following Big Dave’s black tie event on Friday (see here) we hear that down at the scrubs they are planning a charity event on B Wing for David “I drown my enemies in confetti” Lenigas. Noting that Lenigas Cuba might soon have to return most of its cash to mug punters and that LGO looks set to go tits up, a committee has been established to bail out Big Dave. Details are sketchy but inmates are awaiting the imminent arrival of Mr Rob Terry of the notorious Fareham Five gang”
As a supporter of Ireland, nothing gives me greater pleasure than seeing the England Rugby team get a thrashing on the field of play. Or so I thought until I read today’s lead story in that fine publication, The Sun on Sunday, “England stars in shares rip off”. Oh what joy.
This podcast ends with me thanking many readers for making me laugh. Before that I look at Lenigas Cuba (CUBA) and suggest that all 2p investors contact the Financial Ombudsman now. Then I discuss the - unfashionable - idea of taking responsibility for our own actions. Then I cover the fraud Globo (GBO) before looking at LGO Energy (LGO) and Inspirit (INSP) where placings loom very soon indeed. Then I cover World Careers Network (WOR), Standard Chartered (STAN), PeerTV (PTV) and Getech (GTC).
Thanks to reader BobbyChariot who has captured proof that David Lenigas is rushing from Cuba following the disastrous Lenigas Cuba (CUBA) IPO to Trinidad to check out the LGO Energy (LGO) train wreck. Its not a good day for either company but Big Dave is on the case , working hard for shareholders. Feel free to supply a suitable caption in the comments section below
David “I love the smell of newly issued confetti in the morning” Lenigas may no longer sit on the board of LGO Energy (LGO) having ducked out ahead of the shit hitting the fan, but the curse of Big Dave cannot be escaped. Today’s statement from LGO is a disaster and this is now officially another Lenigas car crash.
Should one feel sorry for shareholders in Lenigas Cuba(CUBA). Explicitly No! I explain why. Where does this shambles leave David Lenigas? In a bad spot I suggest for Afriag (AFRI), Inspirit (INSP) and LGO Energy (LGO) all of which need to raise cash. I also cover Cambian (CMBN), Caza (CAZA), Stellar Diamonds (STEL), Gfinity (GFIN), Atalaya (ATYM)- formerly EMED - and Fitbug (FITB)
It is one month to Gold & Bears and we now have a A1 bear speaking line-up. I hope that all bearcast listeners will be coming along - details on how to get a free ticket are HERE. I then discuss the new Bond. Political correctness gone mad. Then it is onto Meggitt (MGGT), Chemring (CHG), Plutus Powergen (PPG) - a total ffing disgrace - Petra Diamonds (PDL), DJ International (DJI) - my heroes of the day - CEB Resources (CEB), UK Oil & Gas (UKOG), Auhua (ACE) and the other China Norfolks, PeerTV (PTV) , LGO Energy (LGO) and I have a warning for the board at Minera (MIRL), I have a "treat" for you guys later. Smiley face.
A busy day with my daughter beckons. In the evening it is the new James Bond film. But first a lunchtime bootcamp with Uncle Chris (Booker) to put her straight on the Evil Empire, the EU. In the podcast I ask if InternetQ (INTQ) is the new Globo (GBO)? Then I look at Chemring (CHG), Dialight (DIA) - another win for the bears - Afren (AFR) gets a mention as does LGO Energy (LGO), BP (BP.), Union Jack Oil & Gas (UJO) and - just to niggle Wildes - Premaitha (NIPT) whose shares are moving ahead nicely - more to go there!
Featuring shares in Alba Mineral Resources (ALBA), Boxhill Technologies (BOX), LGO Energy (LGO), Mosman Oil & Gas (MSMN) and Vast Resources (VAST) with share price targets for all five stocks.
Yes this story is about smears. Fat Aussie share ramper David “I just love the smell of confetti in the morning” Lenigas has been caught in bed with market abuser Chris Oil and Dan Levi. Let me explain.
Circumstances change, share prices change and so ones evaluation of what is in sight as a good short always changes. Challenged by a reader I serve up my ten top shorts/sells for Christmas, with one caveat.
Globo (GBO) is now the No 1 short on AIM and I explain why. Then I take a listener request - this is one off favour - and look at Messaging International (MES). Then onto LGO Energy (LGO) where I explain why the Bulletin Board morons are wrong and my target price is either 0p or 0.2p. UK Oil & Gas (UKOG) is heading down to 0.75p and I explain why. Rurelec (RUR) could well be a zero but is certainly a slam dunk sell. And then it is back to preparing my lecture for the lefty sociology students of the Mrs tomorrow "Capitalism makes the world a better place for all (Greed is Good)"
If you want me to analyse a stock for you just drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org - Today I look at shares in LGO Energy, Rare Earth Minerals, UK Oil & Gas and Afriag and set share price targets for all four stocks associated with marmite Big Dave Lenigas.
Naturally anyone associated with David Lenigas must be a respected industry figure whose integrity is beyond doubt. You can trust every word said by men such as Steve “I said that there were 100 billion barrels on camera but deny that I said it” Sanderson of UK Oil & Gas (UKOG). And so it is a given that LGO Energy (LGO) has been upfront about its Goudron 678 well issues is it not?
Today's podcast finds me in a panic as Oakley and I need to do frantic tidying before the Mrs returns to cover our respective sins. Meanwhile Tara the cat is also misbehaving. On the agenda - the great unravels at LGO Energy (LGO) but more especially Tribal Group (TRB) - the latter getting a thorough analysis. Then it is onto JQW (JQW), Alba Minerals (ALba) and the Horse Hill/Horse Shite prospect and Michelmersh Brick (MBH) which leaves me confused, perhaps Chris Bailey of Financial Orbit is geekish enough to assist?
We will ignore the preposterous Lenigas Cuba as we already know that it is trying to rope in suckers to pay 5p – a mere 25,000 % premium to what Big Dave paid for his own shares just three months ago. But which of the other companies associated with the fat Aussie share ramper will be next to place?
You cannot say I did not warn you about LGO Energy (LGO). After today's news I ask if it could go to zero? The answer is yes and the shares are a stonking sell still. But the wider David Lenigas brand is also badly tarnished. I will have another dynamite revelation on Lenigas Cuba (CUBA) shortly, Afriag (AFRI) needs a placing big time and the Horse Hill hype is being shown to be just that so UK Oil & Gas (UKOG) has real issues. It is not a happy Monday for Big Dave.
Another day and it’s another conference presentation by Neil Ritson, the hapless CEO, of cash burning & drowning in debt LGO Energy (LGO). And for once I commend him for his honesty in listing five reasons to sell shares in LGO.
Big Dave Lenigas still will not answer TWO QUESTIONS. His PR man last night refused to condemn and almost condoned the barbaric behaviour of UK Oil & Gas (UKOG) shareholders. And now the big fat Aussie stock ramper is playing the man (two men) not the ball again on Twitter:
No doubt Big Dave will tweet that he does not read my material but that I am 100% wrong. Just like he did when I said LGO Energy (LGO) was going to do a placing. Then it did one. So shall we double up Big Dave? When is Afriag (AFRI) going to do a placing? Methinks VERY SOON.
If you want me to analyse a stock for you just drop me a line at email@example.com - Today I look at shares in Centralnic (CNIC), Lansdowne Oil & Gas (LOGP), LGO Energy (LGO) setting share price targets for all three stocks
A visit to the quack today was not good news but at least the woes of English rugby and LGO Energy (LGO) are there to cheer me up. in this podcast I discuss Alexander Mining (AXM), Cloudbuy (CBUY), the hoods at Equities First Holdings LLC (EFH), Daniel Stewart (DAN), Imaginatik (IMTK), Wandisco (WAND), Mirada (MIRA), Range Resources (RRL), tech stocks vs mining stocks, Amanda Van Dyke and, to end, I can't resist a cheap joke about the rugby.
Investing does not have to be hard. If you see a company with a weak balance sheet and burning cash you should expect a placing. And so I warned numerous times in recent weeks (notably HERE) that a placing was imminent at LGO Energy (LGO). The head in sand denial was predictable, I await the apologies. Big David Lenigas should be first in line.
I had sme great news just now but cannot share it with you. On the other hand my day has been cursed. PR girl fuckwits calling during bearcast, Paragon Diamonds (PRG) owning morons on twitter and above all - since flip flop is on holiday - I have to sub Zak Mir's copy. Please God what have I done to deserve this? I comment on Paragon, Churchill Mining (CHL), Forte Energy (FTE), LGO Energy (LGO), Golden Saint Resources (GSR), Horizonte Minerals (HZM) and the loons who love CEB Resources (CEB) and why they are loons. I am now off to work on a cracking new mining share tip for Monday on the Nifty Fifty.
A few reflections on the AFCE Fraud conference today at which I spoke and on the Boohoo (BOO) supper with Paul Scott last night. Then onto Daniel Stewart, Caza (CAZA), LGO Energy (LGO), Wandisco (WAND) and Magnolia Petroleum (MAGP). Then the fire alarm went.
Featuring shares of Aeorema Communications (AEO), Bushveld Minerals (BMN), EMED Mining (EMED), LGO Energy (LGO), Reach4Entertainment (R4E), Sefton Resources (SER), together with some share price targets.
In a wide ranging podcast I once again praise the great share blogger Paul Scott, if only to annoy those Bulletin Board Morons who wish to see us be nasty to each other. That will not happen. Elsewhere I comment on LGO Energy (LGO), UK Oil & Gas (UKOG), Armadale Capital (ACP), RM2 International (RM2), London Capital (LCG), JQW (JQW), IMC Exploration and that scumbag Liam McGrattan of US Oil & Gas (USOP) infamy and what that says about Standard Listings, and also on Tungsten (TUNG).
In the wake of the recent dismal interim numbers LGO Energy (LGO) head honcho Neil Ritson yesterday gave a presentation at an investor conference and he rather gave the game away. When’s the placing Neil, my son?
So much to discuss today on the podcast. On this wet day in Bristol my life is brightened by a stream of disastrous RNS announcements. In no particular order I discuss Geong (GNG), Vmoto (VMT), Jiasen (JSI), JQW (JQW), RSA (RSA), Boohoo (BOO) - why the UK's top share blogger Paul Scott is wrong - LGO Energy (LGO), oil prices, Antrim Energy (AEY), Belgravium (BVM), Arian Silver (AGQ), Audioboom (BOOM), Proxama Resources (PROX) and in a bit of detail Seeing Machines (SEE).
In today's podcast I cover Big Dave Lenigas, LGO Energy (LGO), Sefton Resources (SER) and Pinsent Masons and Boohoo (BOO), ASOS (ASC) and the unsustainability of super normal margins at a general level
I start this podcast with a mention of my personal weekly podcats this week - The Orwellian BBC is not fit for purpose - you can catch it here. Then onto Wildes, LGO Energy (LGO), Sefton (SER) and the consequences of wage inflation and the abandonment of sound money.
A month ago, Gary Newman wrote that LGO Energy (LGO) “looks overvalued and in trouble”. His analysis drew quite a lot of criticism, but this morning it looks like his view has been vindicated, as the company announced an unimpressive set of interim figures. For good measure, hidden away in these, is a significant downgrade of the company’s production outlook.
In today's podcast I celebate Fiji - come on guys, the Celtic World expects. Then onto how Goldman Sachs got the FOMC to carry on blowing bubbles and the to the farce carry on up the Sefton (SER) - Raylene Whitford has quit. Then to New World Oil & Gas (NEW), Ferrexpro (FXPO), Arian Silver (AGQ), Monitise (MONI), Metals Exploration (MTL) and LGO Energy (LGO - The Sheriff of AIM vindicated once again
Featuring shares in Ferrex (FRX), Jiasen (JSI), Imaginatik (IMTK), LGO Energy (LGO), Tern (TERN), together with some share price targets.
The share price of LGO Energy (LGO) has plummeted recently, but I still think it looks over-valued and wouldn’t be buying. At the start of the year I gave a sell recommendation on the company when the share price was around 3.5p, giving a market cap of circa £100 million, and since then it has fallen to its current level of 1.55p on the ask.
Featuring shares Jubilee Platinum (JLP), LGO Energy (LGO), Nighthawk Energy (HAWK), Quindell (QPP) and Serica Energy (SQZ) with share price targets for all.
Featuring Cap-XX (CPX), Forte Energy (FTE), Gulf Keystone (GKP), Globo (GBO), Imaginatik (IMTK), LGO Energy (LGO)
Featuring Gulf Keystone (GKP), LGO Energy (LGO), Metminco (MNC), Northcote Energy (NCT), Sirius Petroleum (SRSP), Vast Resources (VAST)
Featuring Formation Group (FRM), Frontera Resources (FRR), LGO Energy (LGO), SolGold (SOLG), Spark Ventures (SPK), UK Oil & Gas (UKOG)
If you want me to analyse a stock for you just drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org - Today I look at Frontera Resources (FRR), ITE Group (ITE), LGO Energy (LGO)
News just crossed the wires that stock-promoter extraordinaire David Lenigas is going to stand down as Executive Chairman of UK Oil & Gas (UKOG). The company’s shares fell sharply in an immediate reaction to this, only to recover quickly. Last seen, UK Oil & Gas was trading at 2.18p and the question on all shareholders’ minds must be who is going ramp the stock now?
Featuring Ascent Resources (AST), Boxhill Technologies (BOX), Concha (CHA), Highland Natural Resources (HNR), LGO Energy (LGO), Proteome Sciences (PRM)
As the big shares all decay, as I write, due to the Greek woes, the penny shares are, as usual, largely unaffected. And some of my large stable of cheapie are doing well enough to offset the disappointment in my Footsie collection.
Featuring AFC Energy, Kenmare Resources (KMR), LGO Energy (LGO), Proxama (PROX), Stellar Resources (STG), UK Oil & Gas (UKOG)
Just over two months ago, Gary Newman (a little ambivalently) picked Solo Oil (SOLO) as his runner in the Horse Hill race. His reasoning had less to do with Horse Hill and more to do with the appraisal of the Ntorya gas condensate discovery in Tanzania, in which Solo retains 25%. As it turned out, this was another good call by Gary, albeit a reluctant one! At the start of the month, Solo announced a sizeable upgrade to the reserves at Ntorya-1 and the company’s share price hasn’t looked back. From an end of day close of 0.38p on September 3rd, this stock hit an intraday peak of 1.2p and now trades at 0.98p, last seen. This values Solo at £46.56million. Now that the company has secured a c.$8.6million funding package, the question is can Solo build on its recent fantastic gains?
Yesterday was a momentous day for AIM as we saw David Lenigas depart his role at Leni Gas and Oil (LENI). Lenigas stepped aside from his eponymous company and gave way to a new number of board members. He leaves behind his legacy if only in name and maybe salaries will rise, but should we be sad or is this a great revelation?
I’ve spent a fair amount of time today wondering whether or not life is too short to get involved in the David Lenigas debate. After the fiery “we love/we hate Rare Earth Minerals (REM)” schoolyard spat this week, whatever I say runs the risk of pouring fuel on the fire. But I can’t ignore today’s Leni Gas and Oil (LGO) placement. It has a bit of everything.
I see my old sparring partner ''David'' Leni Gas & Oil (LGO) has released yet another RNS, which means not only are we at a baker’s dozen plus in little over a month now (!!!), but also that each one creates less and less impact. A lot of the news is surely already priced in and is even, arguably, overpriced into today’s share price.
After the recent big rises on Leni Gas and Oil (LGO), banking at least some profit looks to be the sensible move. When you consider that the share price was a little over 0.7p as recently as April and has now risen to close to 4p, adding nearly £75 million to the company’s market cap, this one looks a little on the ripe side.
Today I close out what has been one of ShareProphets best tips over the last few months. In March I made a call on Leni Gas and Oil (LGO) as a stonking buy even though the board had royally cocked up with the court case. The share price was 0.69p and people called me bonkers, an idiot, and a fool.
This morning’s announcement by Rockhopper Exploration (RKH), to take over Mediterranean Oil & Gas (MOG), is a very interesting move. Shareholders in Rockhopper had readied themselves to sit back and wait for the commercialisation of the Sea Lion field, north of the Falklands Islands, hopefully by 2018. Meanwhile, shareholders in Mediterranean, flush with the recent legal victory over Leni Gas & Oil (LGO), still had a nervous wait on the outcome of the soon to spud Hagar Qim exploration well, off the coast of Malta. Today’s deal delivers a significant shake-up to the status quo of both companies and could present a buying opportunity.
