Over at Paternoster Square, above the headquarters of the London Stock Exchange the black flag was again raised this morning as Geong (GNG) took its final walk to the AIM casino execution chamber and was despatched. I’ve been wanting to say this for three years: “Geong, Geong…Gone!” This is the 15th AIM casino ShareProphets China Filthy Forty stock to meet its maker since the Index was started on June 1 2014. Who’s next?
Entries in Wednesday's caption competition were entertaining as readers poked fun at AIM Regulation's ineptitude over the Quindell (QPP) and the ShareProphets AIM-China Filthy Forty scandals. We have a winner - and a new contest in honour of Xavier "L'Atruche" Rolet, CEO of the London Stock Exchange Group as we celebrate AIM-China execution number 13, ARC Capital (ARCH).
Given the disgraceful profits warning, disposal that made no sense, joke of a balance sheet and all round laughable state of affairs, AIM China play Vmoto (VMT) should have lost its Nomad and been suspended ages ago. Instead it has just announced that it is to leave the AIM casino and since it maintains a listing in Australia it no needs no permission to do so. Another one bites the dust.
My uber foxy legal team is on standby. I trust that I will not get flamed in the way that whining tedious feminist Charlotte Proudman flamed her LinkedIn admirer, for saying that my barrister/lawyer legal team are very foxy. well they are. That is fact. And they are on standby for when our latest opponent can get round to serving me properly. I discuss that plus panic for myself and the cats as the Mrs returns then Vmoto (VMT), Carclo (CAR), PeerTV (PTV), Afriag (AFRI), Iofina (IOF) and Fitbug (FITB). CEB Resources (CEB) is coming up later.
AIM Casino China play Vmoto (VMT) has served up yet another red flag with an announcement that it has issued a shed load of shares to various parties. Vmoto claims to be drowning in cash but as I pointed out HERE its balance sheet is actually very weak. So today it announced:
Of the 40 China stocks listed on AIM on June 1 2014 or listed since only 25 are still trading. 11 have been booted off and 4 are on death row awaiting expulsion following the loss of their Nomad. The returns from this portfolio of doom now average MINUS 50.125%. But actually it is worse.
The ShareProphets AIM-China Filthy Forty is having an amazing week. We’ve had all manner of nonsense, from AIM failing to boot off Global Market Group (GMC) after being without a Nomad for a month until three days late, Geong (GNG) shares collapsing after a (derisory) take-over fell apart, a fantasy world presented by Vmoto (VMT) as it sold off a division on a PE of about 1 to the same people it bought it from and joke interims from JQW (cash pile mounting but dividend binned) and this morning Jiasen (cash pile mounting, dividend chopped by two thirds). And we have also had interims from Haike Chemical (HAIK).
The countdown to Corrie live is underway. If you wish to understand what life is really like in the muder and drug dealing infested sexual hothouse that is the Grim Northern welfare safari tune in tonight. How can I compete with that in a podcast? But I do my best discussing Golden Saint Resources (GSR), JQW (JQW), Vmoto (VMT), Wandisco (WAND), Publishing Tech (PTO), Daniel Stewart (DAN) and Plethora (PLE)
Shares in Vmoto (VMT) are back from suspension on the AIM Casino and ASX after it published a statement which only the thickest of morons and China Norfolk addicts will believe. It is talking shite. The shares are off 18% at 13.5p but the valuation of £20 million is just a rum n coke. Sell.
It is London Buses time once again here on ShareProphets.com. A quiet few days on the AIM-China Filthy Forty and then all of a sudden three dreadful RNSs all come at once. Nine Filthy Forty members have already departed stage left. Three more are on death row following Nomad resignations – China Chaintek (CTEK), ARC Capital (ARC) and Global Market Group (GMC) which receives its last rites today. And now today two further China plays announced dire news, JQW (JQW) and Vmoto (VMT) as well as a potential bidder walking out on Geong (GNG) in the wake of a few issues with revenue recognition. No doubt the auditors there (UHY Hacker Young) will be shown to have acted with all due care.
So much to discuss today on the podcast. On this wet day in Bristol my life is brightened by a stream of disastrous RNS announcements. In no particular order I discuss Geong (GNG), Vmoto (VMT), Jiasen (JSI), JQW (JQW), RSA (RSA), Boohoo (BOO) - why the UK's top share blogger Paul Scott is wrong - LGO Energy (LGO), oil prices, Antrim Energy (AEY), Belgravium (BVM), Arian Silver (AGQ), Audioboom (BOOM), Proxama Resources (PROX) and in a bit of detail Seeing Machines (SEE).
Oh dear. It is another dismal day for those invested in the Filthy Forty China Aim stocks with shares in Vmoto (VMT) suspended on the casino after a most bizarre statement. Let’s look at the timeline of what has – to date – been one of the star performing China AIM plays one of only three showing gains since IPO. Make that two now.
Vmoto (VMT), is a manufacturing and distribution group specialising in high quality "green" electric powered scooters which was brought to AIM on 9th November 2012, by finnCap (Company Nominated Adviser and Broker). After raising £1.6 million by selling 121,075,002 new ordinary shares at 1.3p pence.
