BREAKING: Tom Winnifrith yet again commended by regulator: The FRC thanks him on Diversified Gas & Oil

Here is another commendation for me for my pig ignorant critics on the Bulletin Boards and supporters of fraud to ignore. One day, maybe even Roger Lawson and certain thirsty share bloggers from Brighton might actually be forced to admit that the folks who matter not only respect my work but act on it too. This tme it concerns what was the largest oil company on AIM before it moved to the main market, Diversified Gas & Oil (DGOC). I complained about its accounts, the FRC thought I was correct and forced Diversified to make changes. The letter below makes that clear. Ouzo for the Sheriff of AIM tonight methinks.

I start by thanking both Jim Mellon and Nigel Wray who have eached pledged £1000 to Rogue bloggers for Woodlarks, ahead of June 13 when I shall be walking around my fields here in Wales.

Roger Lawson slates ADVFN - surely if Lawson is right the company must have broken the rules

I hold no candle for either Roger Lawson of ShareSoc or ADVFN (AFN) but Lawson has made the most serious of allegations about ADVFN's AGM of last week which surely the company needs to answer and thus I bring Lawson's words to a wider audience. While he is at it Lawson has a go at ADVFN's business model and its blockchain spoofery. 

Roger Lawson slates IDOX but I think he is too charitable

I gave another bearish assessment of IDOX (IDOX) in Thursday's bearcast and the shares duly fell again sharply on Friday. They are now 30p valuing the company at £124 million. I am afraid that is still too high. Roger Lawson of Sharesoc is a bearish stale bull

Roger Lawson sticks it to Blancco - calls for FRC to look at dodgy accounts

The old goat has turned over a new leaf and today really sticks it to Blancco Technology (BLTG) in which he admits he has a trivial holding. I doff my hat to Lawson for that and his comments on the ShareSoc blog are spot on. Personally this company's revenue recognition policies stink so much that I'd have to rate it as a sell.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast - it is fit young mums day!!

Just a short bearcast today as I had to rush off for my regular Thursday morning date with the Fit Young Mums. In today's podcast I talk about the IPO/RTO today of Sosandar (SOS) which we own shares in and I reveal the first of the celeb investors. Then it is onto Playtech (PTEC) and some wider thoughts on gambling regulation in the UK. Finally there is a look at Rosslyn Data (RDT) where - hat tip Roger Lawson - it is surely profits warning ahoy. I look back at the numerous Rosslyn red flags.

Listen to the Bearcast:

Well spotted Roger Lawson - The Sharesoc man inadvertently discovers some big red flags at Rosslyn including a looming profits warning

Roger Lawson of ShareSoc bought a few shares in Rosslyn Data (RDT) as a recovery punt in a placing. That he was able to get EIS relief added to the attraction although I still worry he will lose money on this company which I have highlighted many times (HERE) as a howling dog even by the standards of AIM. Lawson attended the AGM yesterday and reports back on what appears to have been a curate's egg in his mind. I think he is being well generous.

BREAKING: Purplebricks - the Dynamite reviews it is utterly desperate you do not see: SELL Target price 0p

These are the genuine reviews on AllAgents.co.uk that Purplebricks (PURP) has attempted to ensure that you do not see by sending threatening lawyers letters as we exposed yesterday. As you can see they are dynamite and show quite clearly a flawed business model which sees customer after customer ripped off. Word of that is spreading which is why this company will NEVER make a profit and will sooner or later run out of money and go bust. The shares are a sell at 380p - target price 0p. Now read on and wonder why folks like Neil "nomates" Woodford and Roger Lawson want to own these shares... PS If Purplebricks wants to threaten me to remove these posts I will take great pleasure in seeing the bitchez in Court.

BREAKING: Purplebricks - bogus internet reviews on Trustpilot as it launches in the USA

A questionable business model,shocking revelations on Watchdog, very murky management CVs exposed HERE, a complete lack of profits, a sky high valuatione, endorsements from shareholders "nomates" Neil Woodford and Roger Lawson as well as being tipped in the Godawful Midas Column in today's MoS- what could possibly go wrong for Purplebricks (PURP)? To justify its most recent keep the lights on fund raise it had to promise a new expansion strategy. And so on Friday it announced a US Launch. Natch it starts off with patently bogus internet reviews as you can see below. The Yanks are so dumb they will not notice will they?

Hat Off to Roger Lawson - he is bang on the money re Barclays Stockbrokers debacle

Old Lawson may still be pursuing a ridiculous claim against me for libel, he noted this week that he had another meeting with his lawyers, but credit where credit is due, the old fool has nailed the shambles last week at Barclays (BARC) stockbrokers perfectly. And in a posting on the ShareSoc blog he gives advice on what to do if you have been jerked around.  This is an example of the good work he can do when he is not distracted by falling in love with companies such as Globo. Over to Lawson:

New Bulletin Board Moron of the Week contest - sponsored by Roger Lawson endorsed Purplebricks: Prize the right to fire Darren Atwater

Naturally he is reinstated almost immediately. The winner of this week's BBM Contest gets to fire Darren next Monday by mail or in person. What a prize!

My top four short-able shorts in London

It is all very well saying that tiddly little companies like Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO) or Eden Research (EDEN) are worthless cash guzzling frauds heading for 0p but they are just very hard to short. That both stocks will hit zero is a given. In the end frauds always run out of other people's money. What you want are stocks you can short which look almost certain to collapse. And right now you need them badly as a hedge. A hedge against what?

Reader Comment of the day - Roger Lawson has new smelly "friends" but needs a lesson in stockmarket basics

It seems that Roger Lawson of Globo and blinkx fame is not impressed by my suggestion that he is a bull of Purplebricks (PURP) and that it might therefore somehow be jinxed. But in a couple of after the pubs opened O'clock comments here last night he focusses the mind on what a select group he himself belongs to.

The Nomates Neil Woodford 2001 excuse/defence - it's just a Maginot line

It is quite amazing to see just how few friends fund manager Neil Woodford has in the City these days. It is almost as if I am starting to feel that he is a kindred spirit. Neil, how about we have a joint Square Mile Christmas party for all of our friends in a telephone kiosk somewhere? The vast fees Nomates has charged for delivering three years of dismal underperformance do not play well but it is the arrogant insistence that Mr Market is always wrong because Nomates knows better that has unleashed such waves of schadenfreude after his latest disasters. But he still has one or two defenders who say "aha remember 2001" - but this Maginot defence does not wash.

Telit - as we often predicted this is the day the disaster unfolded, but can the CEO explain his £24m share sale?

I am not sure if Neil Woodford had a big stake but Telit Communications (TCM) ticked all the other red flag boxes for AIM casino disasters waiting to happen. UK Investor Show attendees know that this has been high on the bear's hit list for a while. Today the train wreck happened and as I write, shares in what was the most shorted stock on the casino, are 39% down at 156p. But a £199 million market cap is still a rum and coke. The shares could be 20p and I still would not buy. Pro tem I count this as another big win for the Sheriff of AIM.

Notes from Underground: They're not saying Boo, they're saying Booo-urns

The story of our week has been our turmoil with generic file hosting PLC, Audioboom. It's a sad fall for them. Created in 2013 as Audioboo, the service was intended as a resource for journalists (and musicians) to create audio clips as easiily as taking a picture. Founder Mark Rock talks about how instrumental Audioboo was during the Arab Spring uprisings here.

The Bearcast the Audioboom pussies pulled after Roger Lawson threatened is back: find out what Roger wants you not to hear!

Has Roger Lawson of ShareSoc not heard of the Streisand Effect?  Last week his lawyers sent a take-down letter to Audioboom about a bearcast that he asserted ( wrongly) was defamatory and libellous. Since the podcast is more than a year old and so was rarely listened to these days his act was pointless but, more importantly,, Audioboom had no legal liability as libel is time limited by statute.  But Audioboom has no cojones just like it has no FD after the last chap resigned without any explanation given but with immediate effect the other day. We explained this tale of media cowardice in full HERE.  However...

FairPoint to go bust, three lessons to learn and a classic outburst from the UK's top share blogger

First up I must congratulate Paul Scott for sticking with and, I think averaging down, on Revolution Bars (RBG) which earlier this week received a tentative 200p share offer. Paul was right and I was wrong. It happens. I guess my, almost teetotal existence and his extensive field work gave him the edge. Only kidding - it was a great call by Paul and one orf the reasons why he is such a great share blogger. I am sure his session with Nigel Wray at UK Investor 2018 (as well as his live bearcast with me) will justify attendance on its own. But just as a reminder we do not get it all right, here is a classic Scott twitter outburst, regarding Fairpoint (FRP) which said that it would be calling in administrators today.

Is the post Letts bounce in blur justified? Nope - at last Roger Lawson is 100% right

On Monday evening we were treated to the shock news that blur (BLUR) founder Phil Letts had been given the order of the boot just 18 days after his ghastly Mrs Kara Cardinale was also handed a P45 and a black bin liner. While the two of them relax at their luxury Devon Estate, shares in blur have enjoyed a relief rally to 4.75p ( now just 98.5% off their peak) but is that share price spike justified. Like hell it is.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast special for Roger Lawson, ShareSoc and Barbara Streisand

My good pal Roger Lawson will be receiving a superb see you in Court Bitchez letter from my lawyer tomorrow addressing his allegations of libel to go with the one I sent last week concerning his claim of harassment. On Friday his lawyers wrote to poor Audioboom (BOOM) bullying it to take down an April 2016 bearcast  So here is a new bearcast for Roger, for ShareSoc, Mr Lawson and for Barbara Streisand.     

BREAKING: Now Roger Lawson & his lawyers bully Audioboom to get another bearcast taken down

Are there no depths to which Roger Lawson of ShareSoc, Globo and blinkx fame will not go in order to silence me as part of a free press? The latest trick from Roger and his bully boy lawyers Keystone is to have a go at Audioboom.

BREAKING: Now Roger Lawson & his lawyers get Audioboom to get Bearcast taken down

Roger Lawson of ShareSoc is determined to use his wealth to stop publication of legitimate comments about his writing and share dealing activities and has thus threatened me, Tom Winnifrith with both a libel case and an injunction for harassment.

Who has been daft enough to send Tom Winnifrith a stern lawyer's letter? 92% of you guessed wrongly

Five days ago someone who you would say had  a career death wish, if he had actually got a career, sent me a stern lawyers letter demanding that I pull all articles on him (going back 40 months) pay him damages, never write about him again and publish a grovelling apology dictated by him. I asked you to guess who has been so daft and 92% of you got it wrong.

That is not for them at least. But it seems there is one born every day.

Wise words from the man who was supportive of Globo & Blinkx - Roger Lawson

Who has just written "I said in our last newsletter that my portfolio performance was disappointing in 2016, but I am feeling a lot better now as I made a reasonable profit and better than most of the "expert" tipsters it seems. Perhaps the moral to be drawn from this news is that it might be best to do your own research rather than pick up tips from others and rely on them for investment purposes. Reading the national press or other publications might be useful for picking up ideas, but you should consider any tips with an appropriate amount of scepticism until you have researched the companies and fully understood what they do and their financial structure. In other words, don't simply believe what you read.

Just how useless is a house broker "buy" note: Shamed Canaccord on IGAS

This website has pointed out that AIM listed IGAS has been a slam dunk sell for more than two years but for a good few months as it warned that it would breach covenants on its bonds any moron could see that the writing was on the wall. Except loyal house broker Cannacord, shamed over the Quindell fraud, its research on this has been laughable. It shows that a buy note from a house broker, especially one as shoddy as Cannacord, is just worthless. You will remember how Canaccord fired heroic Kevin Ashton, the world's number 1 tech analyst, when he refused to write a buy note on the Quindell fraud.

That blinkx (BLNX) is a total dog is now beyond doubt. Steve Moore and I called it right and we are still bearish (see HERE) but now it seems that shareholders are waking up and that for CEO Brian Mukherjee the “black bag” day may be looming. Even Roger Lawson of ShareSoc is on his case.

EBITDA is a bull market metric for fools and knaves – ref blinkx and Globo

I leave it to Steve Moore to have the pleasure of plunging the knife into the dog blinkx (BLNX) after its profits warning HERE. It is a dog pure and simple and the shares, at 21p, are a stonking sell with a 12p target for starters. On the matter of blinkx we long term bears are again vindicated while the self-proclaimed expert on the stock, the disgraced ramper Roger Lawson of ShareSoc is one more shown up as a fool as well as a knave. But now to EBITDA.

blinkx trading statement is dire and worse is to come on April 18

Today’s trading statement from blinkx (BLNX) must be making even Roger Lawson from ShareSoc splutter into his cornflakes as it is truly dire. No wonder that the shares, 90p a year ago as Lawson said the bears did not know what they were talking about, are just 28.5p and falling.

Hey Roger Lawson: Mr blinkx “expert” how are your shares doing?

I have not picked a fight with anyone for a week or so but as its my Birthday tomorrow I thought I’d treat myself and have a go at Roger Lawson from ShareSoc as he has written a piece today that is mean spirited in omission if not content. Journalists like fights and I have been goaded.

That Ben Edelman Video from April Again – why no sane person would have held blinkx

We faced down the bully boy lawyers from blinkx (BLNX) & threats from Bulletin Board Morons to bring you Ben Edelman at UK Investor 2014. At the time the blinkx fan club (step forward Citi– Buy target price 175p, have you guys adjusted that yet?) Bryce Eldercock at the FT, dimwit Harriet Denys at The Telegraph and Roger Lawson of ShareSoc dismissed Ben as saying nothing. You guys all so sure now? 

blinkx – This Stinks! Dire Profits warning

"S. Brian Mukherjee, Ed Bridges at FTI, ultra-thick hackette Harriet Denys, Citi Group, Numis Securities, Richard Eaton of bullyboy lawyer Twobirds, Roger Lawson--we have beaten them all. We have beaten them all. S. Brian Mukherjee can you hear me? S. Brian Mukherjee, I have a message for you in the middle of the share price collapse. I have a message for you: We have been 100% vindicated on your POS stock. S. Brian Mukherjee, as they say in your language in the boxing bars around Madison Square Garden in New York: Your boys took a hell of a beating! Your boys took a hell of a beating."  Yes blinkx (BLNX) has served up a disastrous profits warning.

Blinkx, Roger Lawson & ShareSoc – Time to come clean?

ShareSoc does great work campaigning for private investors, for greater boardroom accountability and transparency. But right now with regard to blinkx (BLNX) it is ShareSoc and its deputy chairman Roger Lawson who have the questions to answer*. 

Blinkx plc – Steve Moore view following the UK Investor Show

Following Ben Edelman’s presentation at the UK Investor Show at the weekend, ShareSoc Deputy Chairman Roger Lawson has published a blog entitled ‘Impressions of a self-publicist, and Blinkx’. I’d concur with Doc Holiday that it is the quality of the work rather than whether the writer is perceived to be someone ‘of modesty’ or not that is of relevance.
