Another victory for The Sheriff: Iconic Labs – it's game over, it’s officially bust, it's time for the ShareProphets National Anthem

It is ouzo on cornflakes time again as I warned you so many times that this would end in tears. Huge liabilities, dodgy related party deals by TWO management teams, not a cat in hell’s chance of generating cash, yet as ever the Bulletin Board Morons knew better. In recent weeks, they had the “big mo”. But gravity cannot be defied forever and at 6.39pm on Friday night, Iconic Labs (ICON) released the following RNS statement:

Two days after letter to FCA Supply@ME Capital shares suspended – ouzo for the sheriff! A Lesson for the morons

My joy this morning is somewhat tempered by the fact that the River Dee which flows past the Welsh hovel in which I live is at its highest level this century and I have wasted much time putting sandbags by the doors at the river end of the house. Fingers are crossed as, right now, the waters have just reached door level. Notwithstanding that, it is ouzo on cornflakes time, as shares in con Supply@ME Capital (SYME) have been suspended at my instigation, albeit two days too late.

The Great ShareProphets Christmas Red Flags Sweepstakes – The Result

Unfortunately Boris Johnson is still celebrating his Brexit success, before sharing what is in the document with anyone else. What could possibly go wrong!? So he has asked me to help out with the final adjudication of this year’s ShareProphets Christmas Red Flags sweepstakes  – with, as ever, absolutely no prize at all beyond the immeasurable kudos involved. So here is my list of RNS Red Flags on Christmas Eve.

Wellesley Finance – finally admits it is bust: 4 kills out of 4 for the Sheriff of mini-bonds, more disgrace for FCA

I have been warning about Wellesley Finance Plc since Sunday 17 February 2019.  It was the third in a series of articles I wrote about mini-bond lenders in early 2019, starting with London and Capital Finance Plc, then Blackmore Bond Plc, and finally Bassett & Gold Plc with the other three now all in administration with substantial losses of investors capital. Now it’s 4 from 4 – ouzo at the Sheriff of mini-bonds towers! And, again, the FCA has fecked it up when it comes to ignoring clear warnings and its basic job of protecting investors.

Ouzo for Tom Winnifrith: Aquis Regulator acts on his specific complaint, fines Block Commodities run by Lyin' Chris Cleverly

Oh dear, Lyin’ Chris Cleverley, the cousin of Tory party bigwig James, is in a spot of bother having been slammed by the regulators of the junior exchange Aquis for misleading investors in his POS company Block Commodities, formerly African Potash. Better still, Aquis acted on a specific letter from my good self sent on 18 November 2019.

Versarien owning loons produce a chart of my obsession...

Nope, this is nothing to do with Cheryl Cole. Instead the chart below is intended to show how obsessed I am with the Versarien (VRS) car crash. The chart was published before today's shock warning and aims to show that I am obsessed or desperate and thus to be ignored. I fear those who have ignored me are rather poorer as a result. But fear not morons, when you have lost all your money and Versarien has been booted off AIM, a then 100% vindicated Sheriff will cease coverage... meanwhile I bet Neill Rocketts is glad he sold so many shares even if he was not 100% honest about the reason!

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: who has been daft enough to send me a fascist lawyers letter

Someone wants to gag the free press and has sent me a fascist and ludicrous lawyers letter. But who wants to suffer the curse of the Sheriff? make your guesses in the comments section below. It is not Neil Woodford but I discuss his woes, I look at Karelian Diamonds (KDR) and offer to back those wanting to sack the board, comment again on BlueJay (JAY) and its porky pie and look at results from Audioboom (BOOM). Finally, my cats are now showing their teeth as trained vermin killers.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: the Sheriff battles Neil Woodford at WPCT AGM

Today's bearcast is a full report on the AGM of Neil Woodford's Woodford Patient Capital Trust (WPCT) which I'd score as a win for me against the great fund manager and his chairman Susan Searle. I did manage to get Cheryl Cole into the debate and I did ask Neil woodford to donate to rogue bloggers for Woodlarks, as you can do here,, but I also took the board to task on a number of other matters and managed to get Neil pretty riled. Happy days.

Crack out the ouzo Fishing Republic goes tits up

Just when The Sheriff thought the coast was clear to jump on a train to the big smoke, AIM-listed (pro tem, at any rate) Fishing Republic (FISH) saw its shares suspended by AIM at 1.20pm pending an announcement. Uh-oh! But it gets worse and I fancy The Sheriff is set to enjoy an extra ouzo tonight after taking Dominic Frisby, Premaitha and Falanx apart.

InternetQ - what are the dodgy bubbles hiding now - accounts overdue....

In December 2015 from my winter base in Greece I ran a series of articles, starting from Athens with Love, which, I believed, quite clearly showed that the Greek, AIM listed company InternetQ (INTQ) was a fraud. Specifically I demonstrated that its music streaming business Akazoo was a sham. The company denied this and in the end its boss Panagiotis Dimitropoulos and fund manager Tosca paid c£20 million to buy out minority shareholders and take InternetQ private. It is now called Akazoo Ltd. The Sheriff is still on the case

Westminster Group's paltry placing is not enough, Mr Market has given up

At the weekend I flagged up that Westminster Group (WSG) was at death's door and needed a bailout placing ASAP. Today it announced that it has raised a paltry £750,000 gross at just 10p. Any company chaired by the loathsome ex Tory MP Tony Baldry, of 3DM infamy, is a no go for me but it seems that Mr Market agrees with the Sheriff. Here is why Baldry's Westminster is toast.

Tom Winnifrith Bonus Bearcast on Telit - calling Uzi's next move: this feels like Globo Mk2, here's why

Okay so the Sheriff of AIM has got his man. Uzi/Oozi Katz/Cats has gone "temporarily" (my arse, again) from Telit Communications (TCM). So what happens next? I comment about what was NOT said in today's release, try to second guess Uzi (that is the real one not a bogus ballet dancer/statistician/award winning chef) as to his next move. Then I discuss the underlying business and explain why, to me, it has all the makings of a Globo, not a Quindell,. and why that means that its share price collapsersoonie could be sooner than you think, if banksters HSBC are anywhere close to being on the ball. Enjoy.

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.

Scoop: WH Ireland - after FCA Fine: staff to be told of wholesale redundos this week

Yesterday afternoon I revealed HERE that the FCA would stiff disgraced pensioner mugging stockbroker WH Ireland (WHI) with a large fine. Sources claiming to be close to WH Ireland pooh poohed my story. They should have known. The Sheriff was not wrong. Today came the fine ( £1.2 million), a 72 day ban on taking on new corporate clients and news of a £1 million placing at 90p to keep the lights on...but WH Ireland is still not telling you everything. Here are two more scoops.

How much did Jim Ellerton spend on Sefton’s credit cards? And on what?

Sefton Resources (SER) shouldn’t really deserve the coverage it is getting on this site at the moment. Even if the proposed refinancing happens, this will only mean the company survives on life support, slowly paying down its bills. Shareholders will effectively be wiped out and the Promised Land of Tapia/Kansas riches tomorrow will be a distant dream. What has happened at Sefton should be a catalyst for the reforms that AIM so badly needs. This company has exposed many of the deep and irreconcilable flaws running through this market. Sadly, I don’t believe anyone in authority is really paying attention and the likes of Jim Ellerton will continue to run riot. That is until they run into the Sheriff and his posse, of course. We are paying attention and today I want to return to this little gem in Sefton’s latest accounts – “included within trade payables above are amounts owed on credit cards in Mr J. Ellerton’s name which are Group liabilities, and not included within the related party balance above.”

Monitise - trading statement vindicates earlier bearishness, where now?

With its shares at 72p in January I warned HERE that although Monitise (MONI) has a number of significant partners, there remains clear execution risk and a competitive environment and that a lack of tangible support for the valuation would likely see the shares hit particularly hard in the event of any upcoming decline in market sentiment. The following updates with the shares currently at 42p following a dismal trading statement today.
