Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: my daughter gets sick and another reason to hate lazy and greedy GPs and the fecking NHS

I start with my personal experience of the NHS today and how much I’d like to see all GPs lined up againat a wall and shot. I am so bloody angry.  Then it is onto Union Jack Oil (UJO), Chill Brands (CHLL), Tern (TERN), the fraud Supply@ME Capital (FRAUD) and Hurricane Energy (HUR)

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Charles Ingalls never suffered this, the grotesque inefficiency of mask fascist NHS staff & Kefi's woes

It has been a bad day at the homestead, the Welsh Hovel, as I explain. I have also had a run in with Shipmans and other staff at  “the envy of the fecking world”  so am in a bad mood. I discuss Kefi (KEFI) and what is happening in Ethiopia. I know more than all the BB savants but there is only so much that I can say. Then I look at the David Beckham-linked swizzle at Guild ESports (GILD) and, by implication, Cellular Goods (CBX) both of which will end in tears and be posterboys for the bezzles at the fag end of a bull market.

Why You have a Moral Duty to Invest in Some Companies Like These.

Hello, Share Scrumpers. As Uncle Tom kindly reminds you from time to time, I’m of a great age. This leaves me prone to a few minor health issues that require small-time surgery. But I have to endure discomfort until the covid-ravaged waiting lists at my local hospital push me to the top. But what has this to do with buying and selling shares?

Conservatives

The Tory tax hike they promised they would not make – another bribe and another betrayal of a generation

In their 2019 manifesto, the Tories said they would not hike Income Tax or National Insurance. Today we learn that an NI hike of 1-1.25% is planned to help shorten NHS waiting lists and to pay for care for the elderly. So the Tories lied. But it is worse than that. What is proposed is manifestly unjust, it is the transfer of wealth from those without to those with it.

Prospex Energy– caught between a rock and hard place

The writers on this website have warned folks that Prospex Energy (PXEN) is a dog with fleas so I hope that none of our readers are invested in it. But for those who are unlucky and unwise enough to own the shares (because, as ever, they always know better than those tossers at ShareProphets), there is now an unenviable choice of management.

The Admirable Creightons Reveal Great Numbers. But what about its Future. Golden, in my View

Hello, Share Bakers. When the Footsie falls, there are always shares that still shine, often in the small cap bracket. One such outfit is Creightons (CRL) maker and seller of budget cosmetics and hand washes. It’s not long since I reviewed the jolly numbers behind the healthy share price, but let’s now look at something even more important for would-be investors. And that’s future trends.

Today has seen Eco Atlantic (Eco) become another victim of the ESG driven woke world of idiocy that is seeing oil & gas company’s move away from core business into green energy. I can understand the large integrated exploration and production companies reacting to investor pressure, but a pure exploration company funding solar power? I don’t like the move and I have a few questions on the partner.

Breaking: Remote Monitored Systems – now set to give away its first masks

I can reveal that the first 50,000 masks produced by Remote Monitored Systems (RMS) subsidiary Pharm2farm will be given away free to NHS staff. There is absolutely no evidence that NHS staff are short of PPE right now so this gesture, though it will be seen as laudable by many, is wholly unneeded. It may thus be a PR hit but what does it say about commercial reality? First things first, I hope it goes to the NHS staff who need it most, such as these folk.

This Medical Software Specialist Is Set to Benefit Now and in the Post-Covid Future

Hello, ShareTellers. While Tony Blair once famously said; ‘Education, education, education!’, I think we should adopt the suggestion to ‘Health, health, health!’ don’t you?

This is an outfit that develops the latest technology for doctors’ surgeries and pharmacies.

Inspiration Healthcare and its un-needed ventilators for the fecking NHS (envy of the world)

In this wild and whacky year do you remember back to the early days of the Coronavirus crisis when we were told that we all needed to rally round to give the NHS 30,000 ventilators to stiop everyone dying? It was one of those many moments when Boris Johnson thought he was Winston Churchill. Instead of little ships summoned to the beaches of Dunkirk it was little businesses across the land summoned to make ventilators to save the fecking NHS.

You Might Not Want to Give EMIS a Miss as Demand by Doctors Might Soar

Hello Share Movers. As I've opined before, doctors surgeries are becoming fuller as we get older and more frail. Also, I suspect many of us are not as stoic as our ancestors and go running off to the quack for the slightest thing. All this extra pressure on your GP means that they look for ways to speed things up. Enter EMIS Group (EMIS), a company I've commended before...

Hello Share Munchers. A very useful company is commended today, one which should benefit from the growing army of GP patients. I don't know about you, but it's almost impossible for this family to see a real doctor these days. This is not always due to a shortage of them, but a fast-growing number of older patients suffer more than one chronic illness...

Au contraire.

Is GSK's Boat Finally Coming In? It Seems Healthy Enough

Hello Share Shapers. Every so often I look at that great British pharmaceutical giant, GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) and I usually notch it up as a buy. Despite the fact that it has not been quite as successful a punt as I had hoped, I am still well up on my three year old purchase. The dividend, which I have at nearly 5% is also useful. And I was gratified that it was one of the perkiest  Footsie risers on Friday.

Free Iona tests on NHS - good news for Premaitha: Buy

The Government has announced that as of 2018 it will offer free Non Invasive Prenatal Tests (NIPT) for Downs to women deemed to be at high risk - that is those over 38 years old. Right now it costs you £180 to have an NIPT test rather than an invasive one which has a 1% chance of killing your baby.

Premaitha - The Guardian reports that the NHS will offer free NIPT tests from 2018: what about morality?

The Guardian has reported that as of 2018 the NHS will offer free non invasive tests for Downs to all at risk women. This is great news for AIM listed Premaitha (NIPT) which is a leading provider of such tests. For it there is a clear financial gain but there is an ethical element here which as a shareholder but also a recent father causes me some issues.

It also offers a service to companies which include shares in their remuneration packages to their workers. This is good for employers, as there is a growing mountain of legal work connected to schemes like these and Equiniti helps them to deal with it.

The company says HCAIs lead to higher morbidity and mortality, and cost the NHS an estimated £1 billion per year. This represents a global market opportunity of $82 billion.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast 3rd February - Deltex dont give me that working capital crap

I start with today's placing news from Deltex Medical (DEMG). I do not reckon that this will be its last placing and its language stinks at every level. The money will be used for "working capital". Bollocks. It means to "fund our ongoing fucking losses". And there is more. Yes this is a bad language special. And if you are a Guardian reading loser who thinks the NHS is cash starved you will also be offended.  I also look at Petro Matad (MATD), Petroceltic (PCI), Rose Petroleum (ROSE) and once again push Wandisco (WAND) for a statement. Is there a "strategic review" yet? How close are you to tits up time?

Primary Health Properties targets further expansion

Buying and developing sizeable modern health centres and renting them to general practitioners has been proving a profitable game for fully-listed Primary Health Properties (PHP), a UK real estate trust which aims to boost its present £1.1 billion of assets by at least £100 million a year and hopes to see rental growth in the sector accelerate from its present unexciting 1%. Having made nearly £37 million pre-tax in 2014, the London-based company is proposing to move to quarterly dividend payments and to carry out a four-for-one share split, after lifting net asset value 10% in the first half of this year to £377.5 million or 339p a share, with interim pre-tax profits up 47% to £32.4 million, helped by a £2.2 million interest rate derivatives gain, on a 5.2% increase in rental income to £30.6 million.
