Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: When it comes to customer service the French can be such xxxxx

I start with my troubles in travelling and also with a guest at the Greek Hovel changing all the locks. Suffice to say I am in a bad mood as I head back to Wales. Then it is onto Canadian Overseas Petroleum (COPL) where - goaded by a trolling and abusive shareholder - I remind you why the shares will be sub 10p by Christmas and could well then head rapidly towards zero. Then back to Zak Mir and Lift Ventures (LFT), where I serve up a scenario where the initial Miriad deal was illegal and the cover-up needs exposing, something Aquis Regulation could do at ease. Of course if the NEDS and adviser Optiva are smart and, if my theory is correct, they will resign and whistleblow now as IF the initial deal was illegal and that is now being covered up they do not want to be implicated if things get messy.

Tirupati Graphite warning – surely a discounted placing is needed asap

Supporters argued that incompliance with listing rules was of no great import and, as the FCA agreed, perhaps they were right. Hopefully, you did not fall for that and bailed, at 115p, on my warning last August. Shares in this Optiva-promoted dog’s breakfast are now 35p. It is not what is said today, but what isn't.

EXPLOSIVE: Shame on Allenby Capital & Optiva – disgraceful float of Ben’s Creek, another US coal dog from colourful Adam Wilson

If this rings any bells it should. Ben’s Creek Group PLC was only incorporated on 11 August 2021 with the “colourful” financier Adam Wilson of Daniel Stewart and Atlantic Carbon ( another US coal dog) infamy the driving force. Now it plans to raise £7 million valuing the shite within this company at £28 million. There is so much that I doubt Optiva and Allenby are telling mugs who are ponying up ahead of an AIM sewer listing in two weeks time.

BREAKING: FCA needs to suspend shares in Main Market listed Tirupati Graphite NOW!

Tirupati Graphite (TGR) listed on the main market at 45p on 14 December and the shares have done well, surging to 115p. £6 million was raised by Optiva on listing and another £10 million at 90p in April. But I have just contacted the FCA as there appears to be a problem, a big problem.

Just how much financial trouble is broker Novum in and how did it manage to feck it up in this market?

Broker JubCap, whose financial woes we exposed here, is now in administration. It is an ex broker and not one that the world will miss. So who is next? Well, all the signs are that Novum, the bucket shop which employs king spiv Jon Bellis and has Gavin Burnell of Globo infamy working there even though he is not authorised to do so by the FCA, is in the merde. I suggested 66 days ago that its financials were so bad that the FCA needed to have a look and, for once, it seems the chocolate teapots have done more than that, acting on what I exposed. I count this as a win for the Sheriff so it’s ouzos all round at the Greek Hovel today.  But how is Novum in such a mess?

Even when I  am wrong I am right! Ref Eurasia Mining

Two sources whom I trust told me that Eurasia Mining (EUA) was doing a placing via Optiva.  And so I ran the story, first giving the company the opportunity to comment, an opportunity it passed up on. The shares had been falling for a few days and that is normally a good sign, on the insider dealing plagued market that is the AIM Casino, that a placing was underway. So I guess a few folks sold on the basis of the article. Fear not folks, count it as a lucky escape.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast - My Slimbiome arrives this afternoon

In today's podcast I discuss Optibiotix (OPTI), how the critics have moved the goalposts and the ghastly Daily Mail. I also look at Big Dish (DISH) where ennui is setting in, at misleading interims from the worthless cur that is Plutus Powergen (PPG), at serial confetti issuer Zenith Energy (ZEN) and then at Eurasia Mining (EUA) where, after this post, I should say Optiva is now denying it is doing a placing. But frankly, it's still a matter of when not if.

Tom Winnifrith Bonus Bearcast: Stockopedia, Optibiotix & Optiva not trying to bribe me!

Broker Optiva has made a very generous donation to Rogue Bloggers for Woodlarks. Given how beastly I am about it (as is Levi) that is very generous. I suggest you follow suit HERE. Stockopedia has done another poor hatchet job on Optibiotix (OPTI). I explain why it is just a piss poor and pointless piece. The shares, at 89p are a BUY at up to 90p and will be 125p+ in a very short order.

Gotcha – Bidstack completes placing at just 12.5p: feel that cashburn

Finally, after almost three weeks of trying, and after I forced them to ‘fess with a scoop HERE, Bidstack (BIDS) and tawdry broker Optiva have managed to complete a placing. They were aiming to raise £5 million at 15p. Then it became 13.25p. The placing was completed at just 12.5p.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Another scoop on dissembling POS Bidstack & a strange deal at ValiRx

I am procrastinating ahead of a 24 mile training walk in the Grim North as the wind blows hard and the rain tips it down. As you think of my suffering please please donate now HERE. In consider the 3Xs in light of today's Pathfinder (PFP) scoop. I apologise to Peter Greensmith, he is not the knobhead in the Bidstack (BIDS) affair and indeed not a knobhead at all. I name the real knobheads and have another scoop on the company showing how firms like Optiva make AIM a disorderly market with their slimeball behaviour. Finally I look at yesterday's financing by ValiRx (VAL) which looks like a bad deal in so many ways.

Andalas – The greed of scum City advisers laid bare as another post ramp bailout placing announced

That insolvent Andalas Energy (ADL) is undertaking a placing is no shock. It is insolvent with negative net current assets of  at least £400,000 but thanks to some fairly sordid share ramping it has managed to raise a gross £1 million at 0.02p. The ramping of shares in this company with worthless assets is pretty unpleasant but what is laid bare in the news is the sheer greed of City advisers notably brokers Novum – of Jon Belliss and Gavin “I made £750k from Globo - Burnell infamy – and Optiva.

Breaking - worthless joke company Andalas Energy raising up to £1 million at 0.017p & junking Asian focus: statement needed at 7 AM

With all the usual rampers including the infamous Big Gib, invited to participate, I can reveal that worthless piece of crap AIM Andalas  (ADL), currently 0.019-0.02p, is endeavouring to raise up to £1 million at 0.017p. Methinks there is now going to have to be an emergency RNS at 7 AM. For the story gets even more interesting...

Lenigas Cuba - three investors now have cases with Financial Ombudsman re 2p placing scam

Yes one of the three is Brokerman Dan. Some of you may not feel the greatest of sympathy for him but when he and others ponied up a total of £4.2 million at 2p for what they were told was "seed financing" for Lenigas Cuba (CUBA) they were not told that at the same time David Lenigas and two pals were getting more than 50% of the equity in this POS at just 0.01p. That funding was the seed capital and Levi and others were fleeced.

MX Oil, Cornhill, Optiva Et Al… I Declare War

It’s yet more bad news for holders of MX Oil (MXO), the BMD information feelers are currently monitoring this company as well as ALL the companies that Cornhill Capital is involved with. Of particular note is the disastrous Lenigas Cuba (CUBA) fuckup, which is shortly to hit the High Courts in Manchester, as well as the Financial Ombudsman, more on that later. I have two solicitors currently working on a return of my capital. It may develop into a full blown ShareHolder Action Group. But at this stage I am personally at war with this lot.
