Igas – New Year tip update: crunch time this week?

When I penned my one and only suggestion in the 2015 ShareProphets Christmas tipfest, AIM-listed Igas Energy (IGAS) shares sat at 18.5p on a market capitalisation of £55.3 million. They have been all over the place since then – up as high as 21p twice and down as low as 10p. They are currently 12p as the last bubble nonsense deflates gently but has anything really changed? Er, no. The company is still drowning in debt which it can’t repay and the lit fuse is now almost ten months shorter. Igas remains a stonking sell.

Circle Oil - it now admits it is toast and so is this the worst broker note in history?

Those dreaded phrases "strategic review" and "breach of banking covenant" should have warned you that Circle Oil (COP) was toast and I warned you often enough in bearcasts. But it today Circle has admitted that the game is up yet one broker does not get it and has published the worst note in history or at least since Cenkos & SP Angel told folks to reject the 3p bid for Petroceltic (PCI)

Useless porcine goons on Petroceltic board finally says accept 3p bid from Worldview

Until today the board of Petroceltic (PCI) has either opposed or refused to endorse the 3p a share offer made by Sunny Hill Ltd, aka 29% shareholder Worldview. Tens, if not hundreds, of thousands of pounds have been spunked on advisers and drawn as boardroom pay while the imbeciles who made Petroceltic what it is today ( effectively bankrupt) denied the inevitable.

Can anyone help me get borrow on UK Oil & Gas?

Final Thoughts on Petroceltic

I think it is probably fair to say that Petroceltic (PCI) Chairman Robert Adair and CEO Brian O Cathain do not feature on the Christmas card list of Worldview’s Angelo Moskov who now, finally controls the company, having snapped up 70% of the company’s debt at a substantial discount to face value.

SP Angel now asks questions of Worldview - urges Petroceltic shareholders to stand firm

I reckon that Petroceltic (PCI) is toast and that the villains of the peace are the management who drove it into the ground. It is toast. But broker SP Angel thinks 29.6% shareholder Worldview has questions to answer and reckons other investors should put up a fight for a better deal. I think the broker is wrong but in the interests of balance, it writes today...

Petroceltic - The End is Nigh

At first I thought that Angelo Moskov of Worldview must have gone crazy to bid 3p per share for the 70% of Petroceltic (PCI) that he doesn’t already own. But I see now that there is method in his madness and that he is merely trying to remove the current management from ongoing discussions with the banks before they lose patience and pull the plug on the company.

Petroceltic - it is not just on the Bulletin Boards where we find morons - over to Cenkos & BMO

Bidder Worldview has made it clear that Petroceltic (PCI) equity is worthless and the fact that the debt trades at 35 cents in the dollar shows that it is right. As such the 3p per share offer from Sunny Hill ( aka Worldview) is the best outcome for idiots who own these shares. That the Bulletin Board Morons are in denial - see HERE - is no shock but leading City brokers? WTF. Prepare to meet an analyst who makes an amoeba look like a multi-brained frigging genius.

Petroceltic: Moron "experts" from Bulletin Boards take it up the arse as bid comes in at 3p

Time and time again we bears warned folks that shares in Petroceltic (PCI) were essentially worthless. But the Bulletin Board Morons - as always - knew better. Tom Winnifrith is just a failed fund manager/pizza boy/alcoholic they chanted as they bid the shares to 20p+. Oh dear folks, this former oil analyst has no sympathy as today Petroceltic received a bid at just 3p per share and that is as good as it will get. The Morons - as ever - just do not know what they are talking about.

Further Thoughts on Petroceltic, still a storming sell

The website of hedge fund Worldview Capital doesn’t give much away.  We know that the principal is a Bulgarian named Angelo Moskov, and that one of the firm’s specialties is “Distressed debt situations including restructurings”. How much money the fund has under management or who the investors are is unclear.

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?

Eleven Oil stocks heading for Zero

The weekend news from the oil sector is grim. I am not sure that folks out there in, what Malcolm Stacey might term, punterland realise just how grim it is.

And in that spirit I offer up a list of eleven oil E&Ps to sell now, to get out what and while you can, as they could well hit zero.

Petroceltic's annus horibilis ends badly, 2016 will be worse

Petroceltic's (PCI) year just got a whole lot worse when at 5.24pm yesterday, a.k.a '' nobody is watching o' clock " the company rolled out the red carpet of piffle from an operational and financing update inc. a strategic review. As Petroceltic has a history of trying to gag anonymous bloggers (whilst I don't hide) I think I'll skate gently on the thin ice its business model is built upon. I don't want to spend Christmas suffering another attack from an army of delusional investors crowing that Petroceltic is a real value play when in reality the paddywack performance is plain to see.

Rockhopper; market does not like this deal, but is it a buying opportunity?

The market is clearly unimpressed with Rockhopper Exploration’s (RKH) acquisition today. The company’s share price has fallen to 6.15% to 57.25p, last seen. Perhaps investors are concerned to see the $11.5million drop in Rockhopper’s cash pile, perhaps they aren’t overly enamoured with an entry into Egypt or perhaps this is just simply a reflection of the general distaste for all things oil. Whatever the case, on a fundamental basis, today’s news looks attractive. That is so long at the crazies don’t sweep to power in Egypt!

Petroceltic International – is the board dancing to Worldview’s tune?

The 35% drop in Petroceltic International’s (PCI) share price over the last three weeks has been one of the most predictable events of the year. Once the company’s major shareholder, Worldview, fired the first shots in the latest civil war to engulf the company, there really was only one direction the stock could take. Against the backdrop of a persistently low oil price, lingering concerns about the health of Petroceltic’s balance sheet were bound to have a depressing effect. This morning the company issued its latest response to this unfolding disaster. And it doesn’t exactly inspire one with much confidence, even at 58p per share.

Petroceltic; open conflict breaks out with Worldview, not looking good for the share price

This lunchtime, Worldview released details of the subject matter of the EGM it has called for at Petroceltic International (PCI). In response to the “past history of very poor financial management and false claims”, Worldview now seeks to place restrictions on the board and to stop it pledging the company’s “crown jewel, namely its participation in the Ain Tsila asset, as a security for a contemplated $175 million bond issuance”. Reading through Worldview’s full announcement and it looks like things are about to get bloody over at Petroceltic.

Is civil war about to break out at Petroceltic?

Just over a year ago, Worldview Capital Management, Petroceltic International’s (PCI) largest shareholder, launched a stinging public attack on the company’s board. Petroceltic responded, there were some closed door negotiations and by the middle of June 2014, a compromise was reached. Boardroom changes followed, which seemed to ameliorate Worldview. I tipped Petroceltic at 150p, as a contrarian play against the prevailing negativity this little drama caused. By the start of October, the company’s share price rose to 221p, only to fall back dramatically as the market for oil went into meltdown. Today Petroceltic trades at 101.5p, Worldview is back and this time it means business.

Is the dire situation in Iraq a chance to average into Kurdish oil stocks?

I’ve spent a little time this morning wondering how I could write about events in Kurdistan. It is horrible hoping to profit out of human suffering, but I’ve had to remind myself the market is amoral. It simply reflects the good and the bad of our society, for better or worse. I’ve chosen to be a market commentator and it is more than probable that if you are reading this piece you’ve chosen to buy stocks. However we might feel about what is happening in the world, in this aspect of our lives our goal is simply to grow our wealth by as much as we can. Fear often leads to the best buying opportunities. It is generally a costly mistake to ignore this. The precipitous drop in the value of the various companies with Kurdish oil ventures could prove to be a significant opportunity for anyone who believes in the long term viability of these operations.

Petroceltic resolves its issues with Worldview – reasonable buy at 157p

There was a hint, a week ago, that Petroceltic International (PCI) was going to resolve issues over its proposed $100million placement, with its unhappy shareholder Worldview Capital Management, when the EGM was postponed until today. An hour or so ago Petroceltic once more adjourned the EGM (this time until June 26th), but was now “pleased to announce” it had reached an agreement with Worldview. In short Petroceltic’s fund raising is going to go ahead, as Worldview, with its 20.04% is going to vote in favour of the deal, but there some important changes in the governance of the company.

Petroceltic; a contrarian buy against the prevailing mood

What a set of releases by Petroceltic International (PCI) this morning! Together with its Annual Report (found here) and notice of its AGM, the company delivered a hat-trick of failed exploration wells in one announcement (in Kurdistan, Romania and Egypt) and then mounted a robust defence against public criticisms made by the company’s major shareholder Worldview Capital Management, which holds 19.91% of the company. Worldview’s complaints can be found here, but they concern the proposed $100million placement arranged by Petroceltic’s board. In short, Worldview is not happy and it looks like a race is now on for the future control of Petroceltic.
