The curse of sleazy Lord Drayson – Sensyne shares crash on cash crisis - worse to come!

He took an £850,000 bonus for staging the AIM IPO of Sensyne (SENS) even though he had promised his Nomad which had then assured institutional investors, that he would not. Then Lord Drayson used more company funds to pay off a whistleblower. This man, enobled by the war criminal Sir Tony Blair after, in a wholly unrelated way, donating vast sums to New Labour, is a festering wart on the backside of the corporate world.  One hopes that a cash crisis will deal with this wart once and for all. Natch I have been a bear of this stock all along, unlike hedgie Matthew Scarborough of Gatemore who did his darndest to get me to pump this stock days before the scale of the current crisis started to become apparent.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: The SEC, Medallion Financial and the read across for the scammers & promoters of the Standard List and AIM

I discuss the arrests made on 29 December in the USA and why the FCA should look at some of the activities of folks in the UK small cap world. Case studies include Eurasia Mining (EUA) and Chill Brands (CHLL). I then move on to Supply@ME Capital (SYME) and its news today, Wildcat Petroleum (WCAT) and also Verditek (VDTK), which I reckon is a zero for 2022 but since it can’t be shorted is not one of my tips of the year. To JP, sorry I have no idea why Peel Hunt quit as broker to Bushveld (BMN) but I suspect it gave three months notice. Leaving SP Angel as sole broker can’t be seen as good news. It is like firing our beloved West Ham as joint broker to retain the sole services of Chesterfield Town.

Sensyne shareholders punished for the greed and duplicity of sleazy CEO Labour Lord Drayson

It is not just sleazy Tory Lords that this website finds unacceptable, and I am not finished with cash for questions scumbag, the Earl of Shrewsbury yet. On the other side of the house sits Lord Drayson, a man enobled by the war criminal Blair and, by pure coincidence, a generous donor the the Labour party. Drayson founded and is CEO of Sensyne (SENS). And today there is another kick in the gonads for his shareholders.

Scumbag Labour Lord Drayson has today stated that the market fails to value his Sensyne (SENS) company and that as a result the company is enterimg a formal sales process as he tries to secure funding. So why might the market “undervalue” this company? Take your pick from these reasons.

Centamin – West African Portfolio Review: BUY

Fully-listed Egyptian Gold-producer Centamin (CEY) updated the market on its West African portfolio of exploration assets yesterday. Broadly speaking, one – Doropo –  is being progressed, a second- ABC – is to undergo further testing and a third – Batie West – looks like being shelved. Since I have largely ignored these assets as I value Centamin as it stands now, I’m not so concerned with shelving assets – but the one which is being progressed looks very interesting and could add significant value.

Revolution Bars – argued “successful fundraising” shows contempt for private investors

Previously writing on Revolution Bars Group (RBG), in March with the shares at 29p I was cautious with assumptions on government restrictions having proven dangerous and also the debt and prior challenges. Now the self-styled “leading UK operator of 66 premium bars, trading under the Revolution and Revolución de Cuba brands, is pleased to announce the results of its Bookbuild launched yesterday”.

Another triumph for AIM: Labour Lord Alli’s Koovs goes bust

Well you cannot say you were not warned about Koovs (KOOV) by this website numerous times. This Bearcast from January 11 2016 (Koovs disgusts me) is pretty explicit. The City Crony capitalists loved the Indian retailer as its momentous losses meant it was a fee cash cow. I dread to think how much coke & hookers cash this company generated for the City.  Our full list of warnings are here and should be preserved as, today, the administrators were called in, the Nomad quit and the Fat Lady moved centre stage. What is the Hindi version of “All the Money’s gone?”

IQE – In the dock as the Equities First scandal re-emerges with an incomplete and therefore misleading statement

We have not heard from Equities First Holdings (EFH) for a while, but regular ShareProphets readers may remember the scandal which emerged five years ago whereby directors of AIM companies announced they were buying shares when, if fact, they were selling vast numbers of them to EFH with the right, but not the obligation, to buy them back. Such fine enterprises as Rob Terry fraud Quindell (QPP – now Watchstone), Igas (IGAS, under Andrew “piggy” Austin), Cloudbuy (CBUY), Angle (AGL), Optimal Payments (OPP) and, of course, IQE (IQE) were all dragged in. Well now Drew Nelson, CEO of IQE has done another deal with EFH – and the announcement stinks. Has the company learned nothing from last time, when all of the above companies had to restate and restate again?

Reader Poll: IQE appoints new Nomad and broker so what price is the bailout placing?

We warned you two days before the most recent profits warning from IQE that one was on the way, HERE,  and when it arrived it meant that the company was a slam dunk cert to need a bailout placing. Today we discover that Canaccord has been axed as Nomad and replaced by Peel Hunt while Citigroup joins the party as co broker. This can only mean one thing, that bailout placing is imminent. So with the shares at 52.4p on Friday (and overvalued at that) at what price do you think the placing will be at? Vote below with a deadline of midnight tonight.

Ouzo O’clock in North Wales, misery in the valleys as IQE warns (as predicted)

The Sheriff of AIM is surely entitled to a celebratory breakfast ouzo at his hovel in North Wales? On Wednesday I flagged up a profits warning from the Krauts at Siltronic and suggested that IQE (IQE) was likely to follow. Less than 48 hours later the Cardiff dog duly barks. As a long term bear I have repeatedly warned silly sell side analysts, Thirsty Paul Scott and others that this company is a crock…once again I stand vindicated. And so to detail….it is grim.

Recapping the week for house builders

It’s been an eventful few days for UK house builders, with numerous earnings announcements over the last week coinciding with speculation about the future of the Government’s flagship ‘Help to Buy’ subsidy scheme. As a result, we’ve seen daily returns and sentiment levels in the sector fluctuate more than usual over the course of the week. This week’s chart shows abnormal tipster and broker sentiment levels (above/below the 6-week average) towards a portfolio of eleven house builders over the last few days. It also shows returns for the same companies over the same period.

Would you Adam & Eve it – today’s nightmare for Neil Woodford

As it happens I am in the process of buying a number of new mattresses for the house I have rebuilt in Greece. And it seems a remarkably simple process buying what is a commodity product. When my friend Nigel Wray says his mattress company Simba is revolutionising the market I cough and change the subject. But he is not the only one who thinks that mattresses need “disrupting”.  Natch, Neil Woodford, the UK's most conceited fund manager, also thinks that, like washing machines mattresses, are ripe for a revolution.  He owns just under 30% of Eve Sleep (EVE) shares of which are now in free fall.

Move into Movies by Looking at a Share Which Shouldn't Have Flickered as Much as it Has

Blistering Performance of IQE Shares, But I'm Not selling Yet

Hello Share Scrimpers. When one suggests a share which becomes a two-bagger plus, there is a bit of a duty to keep readers appraised of developments.

Peel Hunt: Berkeley Energia at 47p worth up to 159p

Peel Hunt, which is no joke as a broker, has initiated its coverage of Berkeley Energia (BKY) at 47p with a claim that the shares should hit 159p. It argues that "Berkeley’s development plans show a high IRR due to the low capital requirements, high margins and attractive cash generation. The location in Spain provides a strategic advantage in geopolitical security which is sought-after by off-takers. We therefore initiate coverage with a Buy rating and a 93p R-NAV,our short-term target. As the company progresses through permitting, financing and development milestones, we would expect the shares to trend towards our 159p NAV."

City of London - now just 1 rat left on sinking ship: the company is now breaking the law - bankruptcy looms

AIM Cesspit listed City of London (CIN) is surely a sinking ship. If Nomad Peel Hunt had a shred of integrity it would surely quit now on news that a third director has quit in six days leaving just one rat on board - chairman Paul Milner. The shares are off by 24% today to 3p but fair value ahead of suspension, administration or both is surely 0p. The Company is now in Breach of the Companies Act 2006, S154(2)which requires a public company to have at least two directors. Do hapless Nomad Peel Hunt or the oxymorons at AIM Regulation care about companies breaking the law? It appears not.
