Red Flags at Night: Catenae Innovation offers up another profit warning at 5.02pm Friday after ramptastic effort Thursday– SELL!

Catenae Innovation (CTEA) snuck out another profit warning on Friday at 5.02pm – truly no-one-is-watching o’clock, telling the market that its trading performance continues to be below management expectations as notified on 11 September and its financial position remains weak. Oh dear, of dear – things aren’t getting any better for the former Milestone Group (MSG) showing once again that Warren Buffett’s adage that when a bad company meets good (or only slightly better) management, it is the reputation for the former which prevails.

Five slam-dunk sells for 2018 – June update

I wondered last weekend whether we might see a casualty amongst my portfolio of five slam-dunk sells for 2018 as the reporting deadline on Friday approached. Sadly all outstanding numbers were forthcoming, so no ouzo for me. But the reported numbers were staggeringly awful.

Five Slam-Dunk shares to sell for 2018 – April update

I offered a portfolio of shares to sell for 2018 during the ShareProphets Christmas Tipfest – let’s see how it is doing (albeit a few days late). Into the original portfolio went Frontera (FRR), Milestone Group (MSG), Tern (TERN), UK Oil and Gas (UKOG) and Telit (TCM). Subsequently Milestone changed its name to Catenae (CTEA) and Tern dropped its death spiral so was replaced by Inspirit (INSP).

Five slam-dunk shares to sell for 2018 – March update

As we approach the end on March it is once again time to look at my portfolio of shares to sell. Of course, it is now down to four after Tern plc (TERN) ditched its death spiral so we’ll need to find a replacement for that one.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: surely Gert Rieder of Falcon is a fraudster who should be sent to jail

In today's podcast I start with a digression about driving to Greece given the day's good news about the hovel HERE. But I have a serious point about residual values of cars, ref BCA Marketplace (BCA), Northgate (NTG) and others. I then look at Falcon Media (FAL) and its boss who I accuse of fraud and think should go to jail. Then it is on to Milestone (MSG) - told y'all!!!! - Ferrum Crescent (FCR), De La Rue (DLR), and Amur Minerals (AMC). I have a pop at an Ulster born bimbo on BBC Business over Brexit and then discuss Neil Woodford where Roger Lawson defends the indefensible after today's shocking revelations. If you like bearcasts then remember that at UK Investor on April 21 one of many highlights will be a live bearcast with myself and Paul Scott.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: So I told the dentist you guys are all Laurence Olivier not Dustin Hoffman

I am £155 and two teeth worse off after my encounter with Sir Laurence. I explain all. I am still not 100%.

Milestone – shares now below nominal: what are the chances of getting a placing away?

I see that AIM-listed Milestone Group (MSG) has had its shares marked down below their nominal price of 0.1p today: they are now 0.09 – 0.1p bid to offer. Given that the company has a desperate need for cash, that’s a problem – especially when it passed on the opportunity to put resolutions for a capital reorganisation to its forthcoming AGM.

Milestone Group – Black Cactus watered down (or is it a graceful exit)?

Yesterday afternoon two RNSs came out from AIM-listed Milestone Group (MSG). At 4pm we were notified that the 2017 Annual Report had been published, as had the AGM Notice. But at 3.07pm a rather more interesting announcement was issued regarding Black Cactus. Yes folks, that’s the one we’ve been waiting (and waiting and waiting) for. You will no doubt remember that Black Cactus is the outfit of Larry (who has not got an Oxford Maths Degree) Cummins, and that Milestone had agreed a deal with it whereby it would get a few quid in commission and new shares worth 29.5% of the company. Now we are told:

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: doing some futurology to help my good friend Neil Woodford & is it game over for Andalas

Oddly enough Britain's most conceited fund manager Neil Woodford has yet to agree to appear at UK Investor Show to answer some simple questions from me. What is he frightened of? I will have to go ahead with the session without him but I hope that he does not bleat on about how he had no right of reply! Anyhow, I discuss my futurology piece of yesterday and how it should be viewed if you are, like Nomates Neil, a big holder of auto related stocks. I cover BCA Marketplace (BCA), The AA (AA.) and Northgate (NTG) in this section. I also look, en passant, at another Woodford dog RM2 (RM2). Then I cover Milestone (TOAST) and finally pick up on the most excellent post on the comments section of this site by Drunken Sailor on POS Andalas (ADL)

Milestone Group – FY17 results a dog’s breakfast, is it INSOLVENT yet?

AIM-listed Milestone Group (MSG) has this morning posted the most awful set of results. Having been on the AIM Casino since 2003, the company clocked up losses of £2.26 million on revenues of a paltry £24,640. Retained losses stood at a jaw-dropping £33 million and the audit report (needless to say, missing from today’s RNS) contains, we are told, a material uncertainty paragraph. I should coco.

Milestone: ‘fesses up that January compromise deal settlement cash from 2016 non-placing still not arrived

Way back in November 2016 I first commented on the fiasco at AIM-listed Milestone Group which eventually saw then CEO Deborah White handed a black bag. This was the placing, first announced in October 2016, where the £1.25 million of cash never arrived and which the company sat on news of non-payment until it ‘fessed up on the day Donald Trump won the Presidency. It was a good day to bury bad news – but as ever, ShareProphets was watching. Well, the cash STILL hasn’t arrived, even on the much reduced 10p in the £ compromise terms announced on 22 January this year and I think the company has again been tardy in passing on the news.

Milestone – why does it always hop into bed with technically insolvent partners?

Milestone Group (MSG) has announced a memorandum of understanding with Seed Media Limited and Martin Heath with a joint venture that is intended to be owned 50.5% by Milestone. The proposed deal has two things in common with the proposed deal with Black Cactus namely that underlying technology to be used is Blockchain and the fact that Seed Media like Black Cactus is technically insolvent and loss making.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Fishing Republic talks a load of carp and a truly spivvy share tip for you all

Buried in this podcast is a quiz question - in what respect is my son Joshua ( aged 16 months) ahead of more than a third of millennials. The answer is at the end of the podcast. I deal again with a woman who thinks citing folks who send death threats to investigate journalists ( i.e. me) gives her a basis for smearing me. I refer of course to Julie Meyer, a woman branded borderline hysterical by a Judge  a few years ago.  I discuss the placing by Fishing Republic (FISH) and its accompanying statement. It is talking carp. Is that a deliberate typo? I look at Filtronic (FTC), have news on Milestone (MSG) it does not want you hearing and comment on Scancell (SCLP) in a way that may annoy its long suffering shareholder Nigel Somerville. Finally I have an uber spivvy share trip for you all.

BREAKING: Hey Milestone – anything you want to tell us? Oh, OK, we'll tell then...

AIM-listed Milestone Group (MSG) has been up to its neck in controversy for over a year now, but I wonder if the company has had some bad news it hasn’t quite got around to sharing. This is regarding its blockshain spoofery (oops), I mean its software license agreement with Black Cactus Global Inc (Envoy Group as was) which we were told it had entered into on 6 December.

Milestone Group – do we also need to talk about Adrian Towning?

In his expose yesterday, Cynical Bear raised several questions around the probity of Larry Cummins the CEO of Black Cactus Holdings group. I am sure that Milestone (MSG) is rushing to clarify whether this key player has a bogus CV. Perhaps while it is at it it might clarify something about another of the four key players at Black Cactus, Adrian Towning.

Strange Goings on at Milestone Group – funds in the door at .29p vs 0.14p prevailing

AIM-listed Milestone Group (MSG) has had a colourful history recently when it comes to raising money. There was the cash which didn’t arrive which the company ‘fessed up to rather late in the day. There was an RNS dated 3 August last year which announced a placing which was already announced in the company’s Interims in June 2016. Now we have a new investor ponying up £1.5 million at 0.29p against a share price of 0.14p when the company was surely running on fumes.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Bob Diamond Panmure Gordon & a crap industry

I have been greatly distracted not least dealing with this utterly brain dead and vile Cloudtag (CTAG) shareholder who has been spamming me with the most ghastly abuse all day. I look at the Bob Diamond bid for Panmure Gordon (PMR) and what it means for the wider broking/corporate advisory sector. I then turn to Premaitha (NIPT) and the wider issue of the pointlessness of commissioned research. I touch on Management Resource Solutions (MRS) in light of the news earlier HERE but now the way it is really trying to screw shareholders with a 5p placing. There is comment on Jubilee Platinum (JLP). Then it is back to two old favourites: Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO) and Milestone (MSG). Woof Woof.

How many of Cairn's clients are frauds and how many will quit to avoid reputational damage? I list them all...

Nomad Cairn has not resigned as adviser to Cloudtag (CTAG) even though it has lied to investors on a serial basis and committed Securities fraud. Cairn's reputation is thus in tatters. It thus begs the question of how any of its other clients are frauds, how many are simply not investment grade material and how many of the few good clients will want to be associated with the disgraced Nomad for much longer as it will not help their share prices to be linked to this rotten, stinking adviser. The clients are listed below by AIM or ISDX category.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast 22 Feb: A dying cat, a moronic follower of Lenigas & Gavin Burnell's kiss of death

A lot of references today to yesterday's podcast covering cats and Andrew Monk's puzzles (see HERE). Today I answer the money puzzles and I am afraid there is very bad cat news indeed. So I really dont care about shares and it was not a good day for a moronic disciple of David Lenigas with 9 followers to have a go at me on twitter. As it happens I have a few things to say about Jabba who I will be nailing for good within six weeks. I also look at Nomad resignations, Auhua (ACE), DQ Entertainment (DQE), Milestone (MSG), Litebulb (LBB) and then at Magnolia (MAGP) and the wider career of Gavin Burnell.
