I feel like shite, hence the late bearcast. I managed it! 27 miles in the heat today has taken its toll. I am in real pain in all sorts of places. Enjoy that pain TW haters, revel in it and make a donation HERE I could have walked 32 miles today but did not - that treat awaits me and Brokerman Dan on July 28. He is training hard too. Enjoy his pain and please donate HERE. In the podcast I pass on market intelligence on Optibiotix (OPTI), discuss Cynical's massive expose on Kibo (KIBO) HERE and then leap to the defence of both a PR firm and the asset stripper Jim Mellon. It must be the sun...
I’ve been following the Kibo Mining (KIBO) story for a while now watching Louis Coetzee continuing to fail to deliver the PPA at its flagship Mbeya power project but Friday’s announcement raised my eyebrows slightly higher than normal. In my view, it is either securities fraud or merely epitomises all that is wrong about disclosures and announcements and the roles of the various advisers at the lower end of the market.
Strat Aero (AERO) is quite clearly insolvent. That its shares have not been suspended pending clarification is just another badge of shame for the world's most successful growth market, that is to say the AIM Casino. Today sees another pathetic attempt to sucker in mug punters to try to pump this worthless stock ahead of another bailout placing.
Sub-Standard Shocker XI member, Papillon Holdings (PPHP) has been a horror show from the beginning, as I have highlighted a few times, most recently HERE, but the massively delayed announcement of the results on Tuesday this week shows Tatnall and Longley to be low-rent lying fraudsters and investors should be clamouring for their money back.
Andalas Energy (ADL) and its loathsome boss Dave "the rule breaker" Whitby represent all is worst about the AIM Casino. The company is worthless and its sole achievement has been an industrial scale transfer of wealth from the many to the few. Even by its own tawdry standards yesterday was a low point and it is a matter that I shall now be asking the authoriies to investigate as, blatant, market abuse. But first we must rewind to August 8.
I have in my hand a little piece of paper which means peace in our time said Andalas (ADL) boss Dave "the rule breaker" Whitby as he announced yet another great deal for his company. But like all the other pieces of paper that he has waved in front of his labotomised army of groupies led by cardboard box dwelling sheep shagger Justin the Clown, it is just a worthless piece of paper - just like an Andalas share certificate. Hat tip to Brokerman Dan for that joke.
Not that Challenger Acquisitions (CHAL) has bothered with an RNS but the wheels are literally falling off here with disastrous news pertaining to its only real asset, the New York Wheel. If you haven’t got out already I suggest you do so now and save a few pennies while you can.
This morning’s RNS from Challenger Acquisitions (CHAL) is actually good news for the business, but some of the goings-on in the last week have made me more cynical than ever and I despair at the state of the lower end of the market.
So far all the rats remain on board the stinking ship of fools and fraudsters that is African Potash (AFPO). But one rat is going to jump at some stage as either the authorities prepare to swoop or the company finally runs out of other people's money. We asked who would be first to go and you said:
Things are moving fast at the fraud African Potash (AFPO). So far it has not - as threatened - instigated legal proceedings against me but in light of specific information now in my possession which is enough to see folks bunking up as Rob Terry's roomie we say bring it on. See you in Court Bitchez! We sense that some of the rats in camp Afpo are getting skittish so the question is which one abandons this sinking ship of fools and fraudsters first? You decide, please vote in our African Potash rat poll below - deadline midnight Sunday.
Naughty naughty St Brides PR. We know that it publishes lies on behalf of the fraudsters African Potash (AFPO) both via RNS and when smearing me to moronic shareholders but its efforts on behalf of Strat Aero (AERO) today really are not very impressive. Naughty Susie Geliher who works on both accounts it really is time you had your bottom spanked.
I start with a dedication to Maurice Byrne, a friend of my family for more than 40 years, a true eccentric and a bearcast listener who sadly passed away on Thursday. I will miss him, not least as a bulwark against the raging political correctness of my family. Then I turn to Cloudtag (CTAG) and African Potash (AFPO) two companies now exposed as having lied to investors in a material way just days before placings. What does this say about investing in frauds? What does it mean for the shares and what does it mean for AIM? as the Potash story now starts to head towards the Nationals (oh yes St Brides PR brace yourselves, you can smear me but will you continue in that vein?) what happens next in both cases? Maurice would have enjoyed these battles in so many ways.
I still await a letter from lawyers to lyin' Chris Cleverley and the fraud that is AIM Casino listed African Potash (AFPO) but since the disclosure process will destroy both lyin' Chris and his company I cannot wait. Meanwhile AIM Regulation has sent a standard response acknowledging anot noting my demand that it investigates Potash and its Nomad Cantor Fitzgerald over the misleading and untruthful RNS statements of December 1 2015 and January 6 2016. I have replied to AIM Regulation putting it on notice...
African Potash (AFPO) has not put out an RNS but it has reassured Bulletin Board Morons that it is is preparing legal action against me. Great news. I cannot wait to see the bitchez in court. The disclosure process will be a hoot. I really look forward to seeing that Letter of Credit from the January 6 RNS because it DOES NOT EXIST. Disclosure here will destroy Potash so bring it on Bitchez;. The statement which PR operatives St Brides has sent to morons by email reads:
I have warned you repeatedly (the archive is HERE) that AIM listed Magnolia Petrooleum (MAGP) is a dog with fleas that exists merely to keep its useless board in well paid employment and to provide coke and hookers money for the crony capitalists. It will never make money for shareholders. Hence today we see a laughable bailout placing. Death is merely postponed.
I realise that over on the LSE Asylum criticising Highland Natural Resources (HNR) gets the sort of reaction normally reserved for those who suggest that the McCann's are not complete role models when it comes to best practice in babysitting, but a transaction announced back in 2015 looks very odd indeed to me. Any more red flags vicar?
Oh dear, Surely not any more scandal on the world's most successful growth market that is the 100% rigged AIM Casino. Oh yes...I fear that is the case. Step forward the St Brides PR agency and Goldplat (GDP).
One of the highlights of my 2013 was Malcolm Stacey’s departure from the Evil Empire and arrival here at ShareProphets and a great memory of 2014 was the day we spent together around the time of the UK Investor Show. Malcolm really is one of the nicest and most decent guys in the world of shares. But what he has written today I fundamentally disagree with – as Malcolm well knows!
Twice in the past couple of weeks I have accused AIM Cesspit listed Astar Minerals (ASTA) of issuing an RNS that was a lie - HERE and HERE. Twice I have been pilloried by Bulletin Board Morons. On Friday Astar ‘fessed up via RNS and its chairman Andrew Frangos called me to thank me for forcing his company to set the record straight. The sinner repenteth, I am vindicated. The Sheriff of AIM is a merciful man and the incident is at an end, I move on.
