Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Even now I reckon Bluebird could double this summer

In today’s bearcast from myself and Joshua who I am having to bribe to be quiet, I look at Bluebird Merchant Ventures (BMV), TrakM8 (TRAK), more smoke and mirrors from the fraud Supply@ME Capital (SYME) and the joys of watching tonight’s football here in Greece with my friend Nicho the Communist and the rest of a village where the Hun are not wildly popular.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: is John Story of Zoetic infamy facing a margin call and cash crisis?

I won’t bother asking poor John but maybe someone with a bit more cash can chip in £313 and get the Rogue Bloggers for Woodlarks over £15,000 - HERE. In today’s podcast, I discuss TrakM8 (TRAK)  – as non-transparent as ever -  the scandal at All Active Asset Capital (AAA), I exposed HERE, and finally the fraud Zoetic (ZOE), the extent of leverage in its shares and the rumours swirling around concerning its big shareholder, the liar John Story.

TrakM8 – yet another dismal profits warning

Perennial AIM casino disappointer TrakM8 (TRAK) started today’s statement with the good news: a modest contract win. But this company never fails to disappoint and so having hyped its H2 prospects before Christmas now we have the bad news.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Is Supply@ME under FCA Investigation?

I answer this question as best I can as there has been internet commentary suggesting that it is. After Supply@ME Capital (SYME), I look at another POS, Bidstack (BIDS) and a third in TrakM8 (TRAK). Then it is onto Union Jack Oil (UJO), Reabold (RBD) and Concepta (CPT) where – do not laugh – I am really very excited.

Has Ed Croft's Stockopedia just served up the very worst BUY call in stockmarket history? Timing is everything

No I am not referring to Ed's stock picking system concluding that the Quindell (QPP) fraud was one of the 10 cheapest shares on AIM. Nor am I referring to it rating the fraud Globo (GBO) as a 92/100 BUY.  Or to thirsty Paul Scott using the Stockopedia system to serve up classic buys like IQE (IQE) and TrakM8 (TRAK)  This gem from the Stockopedia stock picking system is an even worse call and in fact possibly the worst stock call in history.

Expose: TrakM8 needs to restate results announced yesterday thanks to PWC Screw-up

The critical point about yesterday’s full year numbers from TrakM8 (TRAK) is that they show a company with zero earnings visibility, burning cash and with a drowning in debt balance sheet which is thinner than an Ethiopian super model when it comes to tangible net asset backing. I do not wish to sound like an accosting pedant and geek but there is another issue: auditors PWC Southampton have screwed up and the numbers need to be corrected and re-issued. Let me explain:

For a while it was going so well for TrakM8 (TRAK). Put out RNS’s saying you had cash when you had debt, record ramptastic interviews with thirsty Paul Scott and get him ramping hard, make really dodgy acquisitions that made no sense, generate no cash and watch the shares go ever higher. Then the Sheriff of AIM started to look underneath the hood and kick the tyres. The shares were 360p back then. They are opening today at just 23p to sell after a truly diabolical set of results and a (lack of) profits warning.

TrakM8: a treble whammy of bad news for it - I'm celebrating

For those of us who have been 100% vindicated with our bearishness on TrakM8 (TRAK) today is a bit of a party because we find ourselves celebrating not one but three pieces of bad news. And we are not the only ones celebrating.
I would imagine that Lorne Daniel, an honourable man, who is the research analyst covering tech round at FinnCap will also be on cloud nine as he will never have to write another supportive corporate broker note on this dog ever again.

TrakM8 talks shite - evil PR maestro Reg Hoare at it again

I wonder if my pal Paul Scott, the UK's top share blogger, has headed up to the post industrial grim urban wastlelands of Coventry for the AGM and investor open day of TrakM8 (TRAK). As someone who grew up near there I would not wish such a fate on anyone let alone a sensitive soul like Paul. Anyhow if a day in the place that gave us "Living in a ghost town" is not bad enough he will also have to digest a trading statement crafted by evil PR genius and crony capitalist Reg Hoare which ...leave a lot to be desired in term transparency.

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.

TrakM8– still burning cash & still promising jam tomorrow, this is just a bad business

My contention, questioned by certain other well known share bloggers, is that TrakM8 (TRAK) is what Warren Buffett would define as a "bad company." That is not saying that it is a fraud. It is not, although it has told untruth's in RNS's and raised cash to buy some strange old businesses. It is bad because it just does not generate free cashflow. Paul Scott, PR crony capitalist Reg Hoare or the paid corporate shrills can bang on abourt earnings per share till the cows come home but earnings are a matter of opinion, cash is a matter of fact. Trakm8 yesterday published its, piss poor, results for the year ended 31 March 2017.

Paul Scott ... your boys took a hell of a beating! Your boys took a hell of a beating!" Yes The Sheriff of AIM is again 100% vindicated and it is ouzo o'clock already thanks to dog TrakM8 (TRAK)! But where next for the shares? All is discussed in full in this bonus podcast.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Should I admit that "waterboarding" Paul Scott was right about Boohoo

I start with a discussion of gold versus Sovereign debt and refer to a table at the bottom of an article I penned today on the delusional poisonous midget Nicola Sturgeon and her welfare addicted countrymen HERE. Then it is onto TrakM8 (TRAK) but more importantly Boohoo (BOO). Will Paul Scott concede defeat on the former, should I show humility and concede defeat on the latter, just to avoid another session of retail gross margins waterboarding. What do you think? Cripes that reminds me that we picked up some Boohoo shares in the Dragons Den session last year at UK Investor. Bank gains, methinks.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Just how many red flags do Cloudtag morons need to see?

This morning's article on Cloudtag (CTAG) should be yet another red flag and Lucian and I should served up one more soonish. Just how many red flags to the morons need to see? I ask this after a fellow asks me what he should do about his collapsing investment in TrakM8 (TRAK). Answer you should have listened to me when the shares were double today's price! I also look at Impact Holdings (IHUK) and then offer warnings about Blur (DOG), Rosslyn Data (RDT), Strat Aero (AERO) where, in all three cases, I'm sure it is placing ahoy and I explain why. And I look at why the Footsie is heading through 7,000 and where next.

TrakM8 share price slide continues - shows director buying meaningless

As we know, my good pal Paul Scott bought shed loads of TrakM8 (TRAK) shares at c220-230p following what he termed a "Winni-wobble", that is to say share price weakness caused by my high quality investigative and forensic journalism. With the shares dipping another 10% today to 165p-170p without me saying a dickie bird, perhaps Paul wants to average down? I wouldn't.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Buffett themes on bad companies, CMC, TrakM8 and the stinker that is Starcom

In this podcast I refer to an article I penned today on the greedy bastards that are the junior doctors HERE. My central theme is various ways that Warren Buffett would define companies as "bad" and in that vein I look at CMC Markets (CMC), TrakM8 (TRAK) and in some detail the uber ramped dog with fleas that is Starcom (STAR) which I covered a month ago -gosh my analysis is good (as you can see here).

TrakM8 Trading Statement: More joy for myself, a bear, than for Paul Scott

I am aware that Britain's top share blogger Mr Paul Scott is flying back from an extended Greek holiday this morning. When he lands at Gatwick and checks his smartphone he will see that shares in his beloved TrakM8 (TRAK) have dived by 10% today, to just 200p to sell after a piss poor trading statement. I hope Paul has some duty free ouzo for the Sheriff as I think he owes me an apology on this one. Hmmmmm I can almost smell the aniseed now...Scotty you know where to send it.

Tom Winnifrith #InternationalCatDay Bearcast: at war with inbred Isle of Wighters, thieving lazy Scousers and Glenwick owning morons

Who described me as evil today? A lazy thieving welfare scrounger ( i.e.a Scouser), an inbred chav with a low IQ (ie someone from the Isle of Wight) or the dumbest of them all, a Glenwick (GWIK) shareholder? I pissed off scousers on an industrial scale HERE,, the inbreds HERE and the uber morons on the Glenwick shareholder list HERE.  I discuss this all in today's podcast. Then it is onto IGAS and the other UK shale plays which are all racing ahead today. Then to TrakM8 (TRAK) and Aureus (AUE) before my morbidly obese three legged cat Oakley intervenes in a very audible manner to remind us all of what really matters today.

TrakM8 claims its generating pots of cash. That is not the case - still a sell

No doubt Paul Scott is wetting himself as TrakM8 (TRAK) boasts of how pre-tax profits of £3 million leads to cash of £4.45 million being generated in calendar 2015. There is so much cash generated that his Dorset bunnies are paying a 2p per share dividend, even though the company has now moved into net debt. The squeals of Scotty delight in Brighton are almost audible here in Bristol. Except that it is all smoke and mirrors. TrakM8's business remains a piss poor non generator of cash.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast - its all about cash & shagging Dallas Cowboys cheerleaders

It seems that Dallas Cowboys News likes my tweets on the matter of its cheerleaders so I talk about them again. Then I move on to ECR Minerals (ECR), Servision (SEV) and the spivs at Belfort Securities, Gulf Keystone (GKP), Rose Petroleum (ROSE), Clarkson (CKSN), XCite Energy (XEL) and TrakM8 (TRAK) 

Bearcast

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast - Oy Oy Paul Scott - what the feck is happening at TrakM8

Why are shares in TrakM8 (TRAK) plunging. This is not a "Winni-wobble." The company needs to make a statement either officially or via its spokesman on earth, Paul Scott. Elsewhere, after a visit to Mistra which was amazing, I look at Gulf Keystone (GKP), death merely postponed, Avanti Communications (AVN ) - ditto - Edenville Energy (EDL) ditto and Cyan (CYAN) where I explain who is shafting Joe Retail: brokers and management.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: On the toast rack are CIC Gold, xCite and Gulf Keystone & what's happening at TrakM8?

There may not be a bearcast tomorrow. It is all down to the arrival of the Mrs as I explain. Meanwhile I look at Gulf Keystone (GKP) and XCite (XEL). The best time to kick a man is when he is down. So says Evil Knievil. And that applies to these two oilers where events are moving fast and the shares are near enough certs to be toast already. CIC Gold (CICG) is in an even worse state and today's RNS is a shambles. The curse of boy scout mugger Stuart Bromley strikes again. It is doomed. Then I discuss what, if anything, is wrong at TrakM8 (TRAK). Then a question raised by the share price move on Friday at ADVFN (AFN).

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast - sticking it to Mayair, Jupiter Energy and in fact all Australians bar Kylie

In today's podcast I start with a few words on Greece as I head up to the Greek Hovel and the snakes. Then I move through TrakM8 (TRAK), Avanti Communications (AVN) and onto Boxhill (BOX). Lord Razzall: we will give you the day off to compose a resignation (in disgrace) letter, there are two more bombshells for you but they can wait until the weekend. I look at Bushveld (BMN), Jupiter Energy (JPRL) - and what its crisis says about oil companies in general - and finally I spend a good time taking apart Mayair Group (MAYA)

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast 11 Feb: Trivial Pursuit Q, the sexual hang-ups of Swedes and Leni-maths from Neil Ritson

Warning: This podcast contains a lot of bad language and images of a sexual nature. As far as I understand it, Sweden is known for the fact that 95% of its population enjoy thrashing the naked buttocks of other folk's partners at the weekend. But it is not this that concerns me but its insane Central bank which has cut interest rates again ... to minus 0.5%. I reflect on this madness and the insanity of Janet Yellen of the Federal Reserve and then on the gold price. I look at a few gold stocks racing ahead wrongly ( Condor (CNR), Goldplat (GDP) and Patagonia Gold (PGD)) and at others I might buy. I comment on the insane dead cat bounce at Motive TV (MTV) and on the odd behaviour of crony capitalist PR man Reg Hoare of TrakM8 (TRAK) and explain why its shares are still a sell. Then it is onto the deadlines for Solo Oil (SOLO) and LGO Energy (LGO) going under as Neil Ritson tries his hand at Leni-Maths. And I also have a trivial pursuit question for you all.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast 27 January - Please Mr Lenigas stop lying to your mad followers

Bears are the new regulators, in fact the only regulators. Jabba the Hutt wants shorting banned. Worse still he is telling his deluded followers that shares in Afriag (AFRI) and his other dogs fell because of shorting. That is untrue as I explain in this podcast. I also cover: the after effects of ouzo, Frontier Resources (FRI), FastForward (FFWD), TrakM8 (TRAK), PeerTV (PTV), Sirius Minerals (SXX), London Capital (LCG) - in detail - and Jiasen (JSI)

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast 25 Jan - 2 hours after Ouzo O'Clock

Okay I am celebrating the impending departure of Afriag (AFRI) from AIM so might get a bit carried away in this podcast, there is a bit of bad langauge. Other than dancing on the PLC grave of Jabba The Hutt as he tries to spin this disaster I look at: Green Dragon Gas (GDG) - PLACING AHOY - Servision (SEV), Jiasen (JSI), TrakM8 (TRAK), Fusionex (FXI), Independent Resources (IRG) and Plexus (POS).

TrakM8 - before we look forward lets just examine its historic lack of cash generated (Part 7)

Paul Scott insists that I must ignore the series of historic lies, woeful lack of cash generation and the rest of the Red Flags at TrakM8 (TRAK) and look forward to the jam tomorrow. I shall do exactly that on Monday and show why that jam won't arrive. But Benjamin Graham tells us that historics are often a better guide to valuation than promises of jam tomorrow and in that vein I shall now demonstrate what an overhyped dog's dinner of a cash consumer this company is.

The TrakM8 Series..how much of a crap deal was Route Monkey? A source comes forward

Paul Scott's beloved TrakM8 (TRAK) would like you to think that its latest purchase, Route Monkey, was a prize jewel it was lucky to pick up. Au contraire. Its a dog and has been for sale for at least 20 months...finally it found a buyer in TrakM8. Now one potential purchaser who "kicked the tyres" has been in touch. He says.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast 22 January: more Red Flags for Paul to ignore, Petroceltic loons & Frontier bastards

Warning: This Podcast contains bad langauge throughout as well as a couple of mother in law jokes. In it I cover TrakM8 (TRAK), Petroceltic (PCI), Frontier Resources (FRI), criminals who should be in jail, Plethora (PLE), Pinnacle Technology (PINN), Plutus Powergen (PPG), Fusionex (FXI) and the fate of those follishly buying into shitty little oil stocks today.

TrakM8, another lie for Paul Scott to ignore completely - the curious numbers of the Box Deal

Paul Scott has today dismissed THREE lies told by TrakM8 (TRAK) in RNS statements as irrelevant. Whatever. So let's go with a fourth and from there look at what was hailed as a transformative deal, the purchase of Box Telematics Ltd in a Reverse takeover in October 2013.

TrakM8, net cash, Paul Scott & Lies - Part 4 of Series

Britain's top share blogger Paul Scott seems to have fallen in love with TrakM8 (TRAK) and is thus blind to numerous red flags which in any other stock would be causing him to plunge the knife in. Let's start with the lie about net cash.

Tom Winnifrith BearCast 21 January - Surreal chat with TrakM8 PR and Frontier day of shame

Warning: This podcast contains bad language throughout. I start with a quite surreal chat with the PR for TrakM8 (TRAK). Either he is on acid or I am. Anyway a follow up to yesterday's expose HERE is on the way.  Then there is a detailed analysis of Fusionex (FXI) which is a red flag delight. Then it is onto the disgusting events and flagrant market abuse at Frontier Resources (FRI) and some scathing comments on the dog that is Bingo, Bongo, Bango (BGO). PeerTV (PTV) gets a lashing - I have a cunning plan for this one. Then a comment on how bad news is good news at Pearson (PSON) and finally considered words on MX Oil (MXO)

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast 20 January - Arguing with the UK's top share blogger Paul Scott again

Warning: This podcast contains bad language and some not terribly PC remarks about the Germans. A bit of an argument this morning with Paul Scott, Britain's top share blogger, on the subject of TrakM8 (TRAK). For once he sounded like a bit of a stale bull and I go through the bull excuses when faced with analysis like THIS. I am right on this one. I also cover Environmental Recycling (ENRT) and Motive TV (MTV) both of which are flea ridden dogs with puss ouzing from every pore and should be put down at once. Then it is on to Nostra Terra (NTOG) and Independent Resources (IRG) as well as Northern Petroleum (NOP) and Armadale Capital (ACP). I did not cover Corero (CNS) but I see its shares are slipping so should ask "when is the placing" and I gave Jabba The Hutt a break today but if you need a fix there is an LGO expose HERE

TrakM8 - Crazy valuation & bonkers acquisition pre Christmas - one to short

On 21st December - as all normal folks were not watching - much ramped AIM casino telematics play TrakM8 (TRAK) announced the £9.1 million purchase of Route Monkey Holdings, a transaction which is nonsensical - if one bothers reading Monkey's 2014 accounts - but given that Trak's own shares are ludicrously overvalued who really cares?

Zak Mir's Bull Call Of The Day No.2: Trakm8: Above 50 Day Line Points To 300p

It is interesting that the big buy signal on the Trakm8 (TRAK) daily share price chart was as long ago as December last year, coming in the form of a golden cross between the 50 day and 200 day moving averages. Can the shares live up to this omen?

Zak Mir's Bull Call Of The Day No.1:Trakm8 Holdings: Ultra Trending Situation

It rather goes with the territory that as far as Bull Calls Of The Day are concerned, we should be generally looking at and looking for charts for shares like the one currently being sported by Trakm8 Holdings (TRAK). There could now be an interesting upside share price target brewing
