I warned explicitly about ProCook BEFORE its IPO Last November; now, a dire warning as shares collapse

The big institutions all barreled in to ProCook (PROC), since they knew better than Old Tom Winnifrith, despite his explicit warnings why this would end in tears. So, too, did Primary Bid, which was a keen supporter - as was our own Malcolm Stacey. What was he thinking?  But, just seven months after the IPO comes a disastrous profits warning, and the shares have collapsed.  While Malcolm drowns his sorrows with an extra pint of Old Mother' Green's organic ale, it is ouzo time at the Welsh Hovel. But do the founding O’Neill family, who flogged tens of millions worth of shares to dumb IIs, really care?

Malcolm Stacey is still unwell

Recent experiences proved too much for the old boy, who, on his return to Blighty, headed off to the Punter’s Return. There, he enjoyed a moderate celebration, with a couple of pints of Old Mother Green's organic craft ale. Mrs Stacey reports, this Bank Holiday morning, that Malcolm is still unwell.

Malcolm Stacey’s Sicilian adventure & Money Tree quest part 1 (as relayed by his diarist Tom Winnifrith)

I am off on my annual search for the magic money tree, which, if found, (it definitely exists) will solve all the world’s problems. Just harvest the tree, and Government debt will disappear. Then harvest it again, and the government can give more money to help deal with inflation. It is so simple. I simply cannot see why Uncle Tom, and other wicked Tories, disagree.

Ouzo for the perma bears – Mirriad shares tank on dire numbers and piss poor excuses

Crack out the ouzo.  At 21p, down 14% so far today, the market cap is £59 million making this still a stonking short.

Professor Malcom Stacey's Highly Regarded Universally Famous Dazzling Christmas Lecture

Merry Christmas, Share Helpers. This old punter has an uneasy feeling the number of readers of this seasonal seminar – like the chances of snow on the big day – dwindles every year. However, as long as just a few Christians hold the line, it’s possible there’ll be a resurgence in religion in the future, possibly as the world becomes more enlightened with greater eduction and fewer disasters. Though I don’t expect non-believers to agree with any of that.

Feedback – back the bookbuild or – after disastrous results – it’s a crash landing in tits up alley

There are a few things that I disagree with Comrade Malcom Stacey about: all this green shite from COP26 for starters. Just how great meat tastes is another. And whether the Guardian newspaper has any useful purpose other than to light a fire is a third. A fourth is Feedback (FDBK) which he keeps tipping and which I regard as a cash guzzling, jam tomorrow generating, worthless piece of crap which serves only to enrich City financiers and has two decades of failure to boast about. So today we have (dire) results and a £10.5 million or more fund raise. A bookbuild is underway.

Of course I’d never sack Malcolm Stacey but if I was going to do so it would be today

I would never fire Malcolm or indeed any writer here for what they write (within reason). This website believes in free speech so folks can say what they think even if it involves a brutal attack on a company in which I own shares.

A week ago, Malcolm Stacey could have sold his shares in Avacta (AVCT) at more than 200p each. In fact I think the old trading genius might just have done that. Then the company started “sounding out” investors about a fund raise and, not that anyone in London ever breaks insider dealing laws so this is a total coincidence, the shares started tumbling fast. As I write they are off by 5p at 132-5p as it has announced am up to £45 million fund raise at 120p. I don’t blame it.

Gold – all the “Experts” are mega-bulls……except ShareProphets fave Jordan Roy-Byrne, and what I am doing.

I like Jordan Roy-Byrne’s analysis – even though he’s a technical analyst. Part of that is because he doesn’t draw magic squiggly lines and predict what the CEO of a company will have for breakfast next Tuesday. Part of it, however, is that he’s not just a technical analyst – he learns from history too (something I wish the great and the good at Westminster would follow), and looks at fundamentals too. So with all the gold so-called experts seemingly in mega-bull mode (and we’ve featured a good many on ShareProphets), for balance I thought I would share some of his thinking, because he’s no bull right now – although be in no doubt, he is in the longer term.

Gambling Neil Woodford doubles down on sliding Card Factory

Last time Neil Woodford piled in for shares in Card Factory (CARD), back in October 2017 at c. 315p, the shares were hit by a profit warning and slid to 232p in January 2018. With 5.02% of the company, Neil Woodford was sitting on a loss (of other people’s money) of some £54 million and Tom Winnifrith was scathing. Well, the shares are now around 186.5p and the market (including Tom Winnifrith) is wrong, natch. We know this because Neil has been buying again, taking his holding to 10.06% last Friday. Heck: only 40% down – this is a winner, let’s buy some more!

A Malcolm Stacey share tip where the company has misled investors hugely

Actually I am being generous. One might suggest that certain undergarments are look very combustible. I am sure that when Malcolm becomes aware of this he will wish to revisit his position. This is a scandal, the company has declined to comment and its advisors do not seem to give a damn either, their excuses are risible.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Let us pray for Thirsty Paul Scott and his boss Ed at Stockopedia

Thirsty Paul Scott and his boss Ed Croft at Stockopaedophile do not like me. Maybe that explains Paul's very sad attack on Optibiotix (OPTI) yesterday which was strewn with factual errors and poor analysis. Or maybe Paul was just pissed after pouring too much vodka on his cornflakes that day. I go through his article pointing out the string of errors. Clearly Paul is not a well man and we should pray for him.  Elsewhere I look at Sabien (SNT), its knob head boss, dodgy share dealing, the cash crisis and why it is fecked. I cover Cabot (CAB), Wandisco (WAND) and then take a look at Motif Bio (MTFB) - a share tip from Malcolm Stacey where, I have told him, you all deserve an update - and a related party Amphion (AMP), which looks pretty fecked too.

Next and Staffline under the spotlight next week

Ahead of a more comprehensive review of annual broker and tipster activity next week, this week’s article focuses on two expected early-January trading announcements from Next (NXT) and Staffline (STAF). Strong returns on Next shares were wiped out during a disappointing second half to the year, while shareholders of Staffline will be happy with a return of over 20% in 2018. Both updates will be seen as important early indicators for their respective sectors, but are brokers and tipsters bullish about both companies’ future prospects?

“A Tough Week for ASOS: Broker and Tipster Opinion”

The biggest casualty of the week was online fashion retailer ASOS (ASC), which was toppled from its position as the most valuable company on AIM after shares sunk by 50%. Investors were spooked by the company’s trading update for the first three months of the financial year – released on Monday – warned of a “significant deterioration in the important trading month of November and conditions remain challenging”. After three years of impressive returns, 2018 had already proven a fairly rough year for holders in ASOS prior to this week’s events. Still, brokers and tipsters (on the whole) have been bullish about the future prospects of the company.

ITV – another one for the dividend muncher’s list

I’ve been wandering through my list of tasty-looking dividend plays identified HERE for further additions to my dividend muncher’s list. The first was BT (BT.A) which I bought at 225p and has since risen nicely to 241.5p. We’ll see how this plays out when its results are released early next month, but so far, so good. My second choice was Centrica (CAN), but I haven’t taken the plunge there yet.

It's been an ongoing trope on this site to note when mainstream media ties itself into knots trying to avoid mentioning the word ShareProphets. Instead, they tend to refer to our dozen writers as a 'blogger' or, in more convoluted cases, as 'an Italian newspaper.' But finally! We have a brave newspaper, the Western Telegraph, in Haverfordwest has referred to our name in full. No wonder that they were named the best weekly newspaper in Wales.

Feedback - Oh dear, Malcolm appears to have contracted a nasty bout of Woodforditis

To be clear, I don’t believe Malcolm has ripped off shareholders in an investment trust he manages by stuffing it full of unquoted stocks to save his bacon elsewhere; however, he does seem to have picked up a few of the “star fund manager’s” bad habits when it comes to a stock, namely Feedback (FDBK).

Here I am in Shipston with my father who enjoys bearcasts if they mention him so just for that reason I record again. His faux political correctness is exposed by the issue of coverage of women's cricket in The Guardian - the dreadful newspaper he has delivered to try to fool my family of public sector "working" lefties that he is one of them. In terms of the market I look at Carillion (CLLN) and 88 Energy (88E). Shares in both companies are collapsing today and I look at why and at what lessons folks should be learning. You could so easily have avoided losing money on both. Please note Malcolm Stacey and other Ocado (OCDO) bulls, lesson one on Carillion is for you. I also make it clear that while he may have some of the attributes of a Bulletin Board Moron as he showed HERE, Evil Knievil is not, in fact, a BBM, I was just joshing him when I suggested otherwise. En passant I look at MySquar (MYSQ) and explain why today's exposes HERE and HERE may refer to events a long time ago but are pertinent.

Advanced Oncotherapy share plunge - when will it hit 0p? Reader Poll

Shares in AIM dog Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO) closed Friday at just 21p. That is below the 25p nominal meaning that death spiral provider Bracknor cannot convert any more loan notes without taking a huge loss and, if that continues, it means the company will go tits up in the summer. Or the former Malcolm Stacey darling will need to approve a capital reconstruction to set a new nominal (2.5p?) which will see the shares plunge, so meaning Bracknor physically can't convert loan notes so Advanced will go tits up this summer. So when will its shares hit 0p or be suspended from AIM? Vote now in our reader poll - deadline midnight tonight.

In the podcast I cover insider dealing (ref Logica), buying after a profits warning (ref Red Rock & SpaceandPeople) and why the bulls are wrong even though the FTSE 100 is at a record high (ref Malcolm Stacey)

ShareProphets Share Tips of the year 2017: No 15 Buy Centamin says Malcolm Stacey

Hello Share Hopers. Gold prices are not as high as they might be, given the shakiness of the major currencies over this year. These currencies may be come even more unstable in 2017 - the dollar, euro and pound.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: The K to O of AIM fraud & a dire warning on property

I start this podcast with an absolutely dire warning on property as an asset class. Malcolm Stacey is wrong just look at the most recent Begbies data and think about it long and hard. Then I continue my series on AIM fraud. A to E is HERE. F to J is HERE and today I look at K to O covering Kevin Ashton, Lawyer's Letters, Minmet and Mike Walters, New World Oil & Gas and Odey Asset Management. I stress Odey is not a fraud but I'm making a general point about fund managers. My Scrooge article I mentioned is HERE. The next part of this series is P to T - any suggestions for what Q and T might cover?

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: 550kg of olives harvested in one day, I'm cream crackered

I am utterly wiped out after day one of what looks like being a cracking harvest. A full photo report is HERE. In the podcast I discuss votes tomorrow in Austria and Italy and what they mean and why we bears are feeling good about the lack of a Santa Rally. Trump was Santa this year and that rally is over. I explain why I disagree with Malcolm Stacey's article today. I then look at a number of AIM stocks set to slide and why, as I refer to Steve's piece earlier. In focus: Avanti Communications (AVN), Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO), Telit (TCM), Boohoo (BOO), Tungsten (TUNG), Fastjet (FJET), Cloudtag (CTAG), African Potash (AFPO) and I have a few words about Worthington (WRN)

Could there ever be another ASOS in terms of share price gain? And if so what?

As I noted in bearcast yesterday I remember my old pal Mark Watson Mitchell tipping ASOS (ASC) at 7p. The shares hit a high of c£70 so that was a 1000 bagger for anyone who got their timing spot on and held. I doubt anyone did. But could there be another ASOS lurking out there on the London Stockmarket and if so what is it?

Does Emollient Malcolm settle my nerves? No, but here are a few whacky ideas.

Malcolm Stacey kindly took the trouble to comment on my piece of Tuesday when I confessed to a bout of extreme nervousness in the wake of the FTSE100 again breaching the 7,000 mark. Answering my concerns the next day, Malcolm was still in upbeat mood. But perhaps not quite as upbeat as we might think: I sense that the ShareProphets uber-bull may be preparing the ground for a spot of nervousness himself, with his suggestion that the markets will continue to rise this side of Christmas. What comes after that?

Bear

As the FTSE100 sails through 7,000 what to do?

No doubt raging bull Malcolm Stacey will be crowing and snarling bear Tom Winnifrith will be growling as he changes the nappies: the FTSE100 has, again, popped up through the 7,000 mark. We can expect round 4,953 of the ding-dong between those two in the coming days. But what to make of it – are we on the cusp of a cracking selling opportunity or should we be filling our boots? And if we treat the latest gyrations as a chance to offload, what to do with the proceeds?

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: The USA is going bust but France is catching up & why shoddy broker buy notes are a sell signal

There are two parts to this bearcast. First I look at Government Debt and GDP over the past 8 years in the UK , France, the US and Greece and where all four are heading - it will startle those like Jeremy Corbyn, Chancellor Hammond and Malcolm Stacey who still believe in the money tree. Then I look at the great sell indicator that is a broker buy note and explain why.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Malcolm Stacey's maddest article ever - he is mad as a Cloudtag moron

Malcolm's article today, HERE, suggests that the men in flapping white coats will be coming for him soon. He is madder than a convention of morons at the Cloudtag (CTAG) AGM. But it is all symptomatic of late stage bull market self delusion. I discuss this phenomena and give explicit advice of how to protect your wealth ahead of the shit storm that is coming. The reference to safe spaces for dippy and pathetic millennials is HERE

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast - I'm selling shares ahead of a winter of discontent

I refer to a podcast I did earlier on Dr King and Donald Trump HERE. Malcolm Stacey has today urged you to buy shares HERE. I am starting to sell FIML owned shares as I am now more bearish than I have been in a very long time. I take apart Malcolm's flimsy arguments but add in a number of other points to make, what I think, is a compelling bear case.

Wasting More Time with the bastards at Barclays

Having had the run around from my Barclays team in Douglas, Isle of Man as I described on bearcast yesterday, I was advised to go to a Barclays branch in Bristol with two forms of ID to change its records of whom I worked for. As I had a dental appointment in town I walked to the main Barclays branch in central Bristol, at Broadmead, where the bastards then wasted another forty five minutes of my life with sheer incompetence.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast - Looking back to 16 September 1929, lessons we don't learn

In this podcast I speculate on how the pace of change is accelerating and what world my son will grow up in. But more importantly I look back to 8 years ago yesterday and 87 years ago yesterday, to what happened then and the mistakes and lessons we all forget to think about as we blunder on. Yes I am talking asset bubbles and stockmarket crashes again. Malcolm Stacey take note!

Do not give a cent to the Calais Jungle Charities - Malcolm Stacey is wrong (again)

Today my friend Malcolm has stated that he is giving £1,000 to three Charities helping folks in the Calais Jungle as they wait to (illegally) enter Britain. He urges you to donate and you can read his article HERE. But I urge Malcolm to cancel his cheque and for no-one to give a cent to the Charities because what Malcolm says is just plain wrong. Malcolm means well but is naive and poorly researched.

Tom Winnifrith Bonus Bearcast: Malcolm Stacey has mad bull disease & is wrong, wrong, wrong

Malcolm Stacey penned a piece earlier today (HERE) on why shares should rise. They may do so, as we live in crazy times but an number of the "facts" claimed by Malcolm are quite simply wrong. And his thesis is thus built on straw - he is wrong, wrong and wrong again as I explain in this bonus podcast.

Tom Winnifrith Bonus Bearcast: Brexit, data manipulation, hate crimes, house prices & Malcolm talking Foxtons cobblers

I have been doing some work to show that the claims made by the left that Brexit has caused a sharp rise in hate crimes are at best academically flawed and thus unproven and at worst an outright lie. That leads me very directly onto claims made by Malcolm Stacey today on Brexit and house prices as he discussed Foxtons (FOXT) HERE. I take that article apart completely as my old friend is just wrong.

Malcolm Stacey in Hospital Caption Contest Result

There were thirteen entries in the final Malcolm Stacey caption contest as you can see HERE. Thankfully Getafix is back from his time with the Quacks and normal service has now resumed. The winning caption for the picture of the nice young lady below came from Backwoodsman and is:

Malcolm Stacey Caption Contest 8 - Off with the quacks

Sadly Getafix has a routine hospital visit today and so, once again, we must live without his golden prose. Luckily the greedy bastard junior doctors are not on strike for a change so we hope that normal service will resume tomorrow. But Malcolm has managed to send in a snap of one of the nurses treating him and I invite you to suggest a suitable caption in the comments section below by midnight tonight

GetAFix

The Final Malcolm Stacey Caption Contest winner is... The King

Day 7 of the Getafix on Holiday Caption Contests saw six entries as you can see HERE. But there was only one winner which, once again, was the King of the Caption Contests himself, Show Me The Cash. His entry to the photo below is:

Malcolm Stacey on Holiday Day 7 caption Contest & day 6 winner

There were a massive 28 entries for yesterday's Getafix caption contest! I cannot think what aroused such interest but perhaps you might get an idea HERE. Anyway there is a joint winner and today Malcolm has sent us yet another selfie from his hols...do your worst in the comments section below with a suitable caption. Now to yesterday's caption for the photo of Malcolm with the stunning partially clad young lady.

GetAFix

Malcolm Stacey on holiday Caption Contest day 6 & day 5 winner

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.

GetAFix

Malcolm Stacey on Holiday Caption Contest Day 5 ( and day 4 shock winner)

The standard of entries in yesterday's Getafix on holiday contest was dire. And so notwithstanding the fact that Wildes will now report me to the FCA for market abuse I am awarding the non existent prize to my own entry. You can see the other captions HERE. Please do better with today's selfie sent in by Malcolm who is now back on the beach as you can see below.

Malcolm Stacey on Holiday Day 4 Caption Contest & Day 3 winner

It is not just to avoid Wildes screaming "fix - insider dealing and market abuse" and reporting me to the FCA but once again I am not awarding the prize for the day three contest to Nigel Somerville. You can see his and the other five losing entries HERE. For today's contest Getafix has, it seems, left the beach and headed inland and sent us a new photo to allow you to do your worst. The deadline for entering today's contest is midnight ( which is also the deadline in the Tory leadership poll HERE). So yesterday's winner with another corker was...

GetAFix

Malcolm Stacey on Holiday Caption Contest day 3 (and day 2 winner)

Getafix is still on holiday and without his enthusiastic endorsement trading activity in Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO) has all but disappeared. But as a consolation the old boy has sent us another holiday snap which is begging for a suitable caption. Yesterday's picture produced a standout winner from the 10 entries as you can see HERE

Malcolm Stacey on Holiday Caption Contest day 2 (and day 1 winner)

Getafix is still on holiday and has sent us back another snap for our amusement. But before we go to today's caption contest there was a clear winner yesterday

Photo-Me – shares slump on results announcement, do I agree with shareholder Malcolm Stacey?

Results for its year ended 30th April 2016 from Photo-Me International (PHTM) include “a 14.6% increase in reported underlying pre-tax profits to a record £40.1million”, though the shares are down more than 17%, at around 132p, in response. As a shareholder Malcolm Stacey’s response is HERE and the following is my take.

There he goes again, Malcolm blaming Brexit for everything - he is just plain wrong

Last time it was the slowdown in house prices. Today it is the fact that UK equities are not rocketing that Malcolm Stacey is blaming on Brexit fears. His fellow Guardian reading Euro loons blame Brexit for slowing UK economic growth while Dodgy Dave blames it for an increased chance of World War Three. Maybe it is Brexit that is causing Cheryl Cole not to head out to the Greek Hovel for a night of passion with me?.Bloody Boris, you bastard: it is all your fault that I am not playing jiggy wiggy with the UK's leading chanteuse tonight.

You can't be critical of shares in companies that are fighting cancer or of ones beloved by Bulletin Board Morons and Malcolm Stacey. Yes I can! Sorry but shares in Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO) are surely a stonking sell. Then I cover PCG Entertainment (PCGE), and with reference to Teathers (TEA) I look at Boxhill (BOX) which will go to zero one way or another. I have a few comments on Highlands Natural Resources (HNR) but flag up that I am penning a piece tomorrow

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast 8 May -Don't fall into the trap Malcolm (Stacey) admit that facts have changed

In today's podcast I chide my colleague Malcolm over an article he runs tomorrow on Inmarsat (ISAT). He makes the mistake, as we all do, of failing to accept that facts have changed. I explain why Inmarsat is certainly NOT a buy but then also reflect on why J Hon Esq makes the same error on China and on why I am so bearish on equities and, in accepting that, why the case for gold grows stronger.

The grim reaper will achieve what quotas will fail to do and will make Britain wealthier in the process.
