Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: How do you keep an idiot in suspense?

Only kidding, Elric – the bit about Optibiotix (OPTI) is at the end. Before that, I discuss bear market-funding economics (it is more interesting than it sounds); c/o Luke Johnson; Russia & Ukraine; ADM Energy (ADME) and its pre-bailout-placing spoof; Vast Resources (VAST); Versarien (VRS); and then, matters to keep Mr Lemming happy.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Luke Johnson and the upper class twit of the year

I start with a look at 5 duff IPOs and the questions folks did not ask: Peel Hunt (PEEL), musicMagpie (MMAG), Nightcap (NGHT), Parlsey Box (MEAL) and THG (THG). Then onto Russian stocks crashing and Eurasia Mining (EUA) delaying its own downfall but only pro tem. Finally a look at Marechale Capital (MAC) backed by my friend Luke but run by the Upper Clas twit of the year. What is Luke thinking of? I run through hard numbers.

Hat tip Luke Johnson - life in big tech and what it says about the sinking West

It was Luke who flagged this twitter thread up to me. It is a fascinating insight into life in big tech and how a combination of woke fascism and WFH scamdemicary is sinking productivity, morale and drive in such firms. It is a tale of the decline of the wretched West and as such, worrying but fascinating. Put it this way – this is not happening in India or China!

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast - when's the profits warning from Sosandar & the tale of the unhappy young man

I sart with the unhappy young man. Actually he is in his 40s. But it is a tale which, I suspect, is being replicated across the UK. It will trigger abrain drain as we go back to the 1970s. Then I discuss the scumbags at Abingdon Health (ABDX) screwing PIs ahead of an inevitable placing, I ask when Sosandar (SOS) will warn as it surely must, I look at share trades in the fraud Chill Brands (CHLL) and what they mean and then ask what the xxxx (Matthew & dog please insert word) Luke Johnson is doing investing in the lifestyle business run by the upper class twit of the year that is Marechale Capital (MAC). I am sure it will do better as an investment than Patisserie Holdings (CAKE) but not that much better.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: have you lost your animal spirit yet?

On the occassion of my father's 82nd Birthday i ponder how miserrable life must be for him today. I urge you to hold your nose and go online to the Mail on Sunday just to read Peter Hitchens today. His column is golden prose, a joy to read. we agree on the coronavirus and the Government's appalling response. Luke Johnson is in the same camp and I quote from his Sunday Times column reflecting on where my animal spirit sits as a consumer, an investor and an entrepreneur. Where, I ask,  do you sit dear listeners? I sense, in many cases they have been crushed and thus what lies ahead is a recession of the sort few of us have ever seen before.

The one man you cannot miss - surely you want to know what the UK's top fund manager is buying & selling?

The hard data shows that Mark Slater was not only the 3rd best performing UK fund manager last year but over ten years is No 1.

Ask Luke Johnson about Entrepreneurship at #UKInvestorShow on April 18

I am delighted that my old pal Luke Johnson is back at UK Investor Show and this year he will be giving two talks. On the main stage he will discuss the poverty of sell side research, why bears are the new regulators and why a free and critical financial press is needed. But on the analysts floor ( second floor) in an 80 person room Luke is talking about something he is better qualified than most to discuss – entrepreneurship.

Tom Winnifrith: Will you support ShareProphets Investigative campaigns against AIM Fraud?

Last week we learned that the Bulletin Board jihadists had lied to Etihad airlines in order to persuade it not to advertise on this website. It joins Tesco, Waitrose, Hargreaves Lansdown and John Lewis in caving in to the free speech deniers. Speakers at UK Investor Show have also been pressured into pulling out by those who do not support a free press. We will not back down but ask for your support.

Bulletin Board Moron (and bigoted believer in a global Jewish conspiracy) of the week – Shefers Shadow

Shefers has posted a comment on an article on this website which wins him the coveted title of Bulletin Board Moron of the week.  He is also clearly the sort of Jew hater who would have regarded The Protocols of the Elders of Zion as ideal bed-time reading for his kids.
