I start with a bity of my travel adventures. I was in bed by 3 AM last night after the previous night's 5 AM. If I ever say that I am driving from Greece to Wales in 2.5 days again you can shoot me. Then I remind you that it is less than a month to ShareStock so book your seats on the greenest lawn in Wales NOW. Then I look in detail at Revolution Beauty (REVB), Wildcat Petroleum (WCAT), I have a hot rumour on Parsley Box (MEAL) and I comment on GSK (GSK) and the Zantac issue. or non issue. Any more carcinogens with your medication vicar?
I start with my troubles in travelling and also with a guest at the Greek Hovel changing all the locks. Suffice to say I am in a bad mood as I head back to Wales. Then it is onto Canadian Overseas Petroleum (COPL) where - goaded by a trolling and abusive shareholder - I remind you why the shares will be sub 10p by Christmas and could well then head rapidly towards zero. Then back to Zak Mir and Lift Ventures (LFT), where I serve up a scenario where the initial Miriad deal was illegal and the cover-up needs exposing, something Aquis Regulation could do at ease. Of course if the NEDS and adviser Optiva are smart and, if my theory is correct, they will resign and whistleblow now as IF the initial deal was illegal and that is now being covered up they do not want to be implicated if things get messy.
I am afraid that events have conspired to deprive us of Malcolm’s words of wisdom for a third day. You will remember that Malcolm has now moved the contents of his 26 room South Wales seaside mansion to his new home in North Wales in a carbon net zero worker friendly manner. But he has no internet. Yesterday …
There is no column from the old boy today as he is moving house. This presents a dilemma for our own in house eco and social justice warrior. How does one ship the contents from his 26 room palace on the sea shore in the poshest village in South Wales to his new abode in the land of the Gogs, that is to say North Wales, in a net carbon zero manner?
Drew Nelson is the scumbag who as CEO of IQE (IQE) persuaded thirsty share bloggers and other gullible souls that his low grade commodity business, based in the rain sodden, post industrial, covid ridden, second world wastelands of South Wales which never generated a cent of cash was somehow a great growth stock. That justified paying Drew a vast salary but that was not enough to sate his greed.
I start with a few reflections about being alone on holiday for the first time in two weeks. It is a short respite, but blissful. Then, it is onto Julie Meyer and why she is so wrong about the economic prospects of her latest bolt hole, Greece. It is doomed. Then, onto delusion among shareholders in the fraud, Supply@ME Capital (SYME). And finally, why you should book your tickets for ShareStock, on the banks of the river Dee in Wales, on September 10 HERE
Given it is hammering down here in North Wales, I bet Mr Mellon is somewhere far sunnier than Port Erin. The graphic below is from him, and I discuss it in detail. Then, I look at those determined to ignore clear warnings, ref Petropavlovsk (POG). I cover incomplete and thus, potentially deceptive, RNS statements ref. Nostra Terra Oil & Gas (NTOG), before assessing Fulham Shore (FUL) in detail. With gift aid, we have now raised £19,700 for Rogue Bloggers for Woodlarks - please help us reach the £20,000 landmark today (D-3 days), HERE. Finally, my podcast on falling out with Dominic Frisby, 1939 and all that can be accessed, HERE.
Still branding herself after the colour of her hair dye, the blonde, Julie “lingerie on expenses” Meyer is today again spamming her GPDR non-compliant mailing list trying to persuade folks to join her at her latest investment conference. This email from the fugitive from a 6 month jail term here in the UK is her most insane yet. She insults the French, the Queen and invests a whole new island off Wales, North Anglesey. It is of course just Anglesey, or rather Yns Mon. Maybe she should visit the place as the North Wales Police are keen to have a word following her recent wasting of Police time.
It is now over a year since I wrote about ITV plc (ITV). I am trying to think if I have watched the channel since then but certainly, judging by the over 40% share price fall since, it was wise to observe last May that “if you don’t own it…you can chill…overall like the majority of TV in my opinion a bit of a yawn”. Have I changed my mind at any level today?
I start with a few words on vegetables here at the Welsh hovel. Then onto today's election in France, and finally, the £16.60 pub burger in Wales: what is happening and what does it all mean?
These are the most-read articles and most listened-to Bearcasts of the week. The most read non-Tom story is Centamin – 2021 FY Numbers And Dividend: Is It Now A Sell? by Nigel Somerville at Number two or Number four if you include Bearcasts.
I give you the circumstances and ask should I sack this old bloke? I can see no reason not to even if it forces me to have to learn how to slate. Then I look at BlueJay Mining (JAY), musicMagpie (MMAG), McColls (MCLS), and the almighty joke that is Standard Listed Fragrant Prosperity (FPP) which is, as I explain, worth less than nothing.
I explain why and about a bit of a mishap as I left Wales. The it is onto musicMagpie (MMAG) after this piece earlier, Parsley Box (MEAL), Chill Brands (FRAUD), Online Blockchain (OBC), TrustPilot (TRST) and Knights Group (KGH). After my enforced training walk thismorning you can donate to Rogue Bloggers for Woodlarks HERE on the news of our new star walker.
I comment on the weather here in Wales and then start with those sort of folks who engage in utterly reckless behaviour they know will ruin them. I think of vicars or Tory MPs having unsafe sex with rent boys in the era of the News of the Screws or of Paul Smith the, now ex, CEO of Morses Club (MCL). I look at ADVFN (AFN) and ask if its shares are now cheap at 63p? Then it is onto UK Oil & Gas (UKOG), and to Predator Oil (PRD) where I smell a pre-placing ramp and where the COO is now tweeting like a lunatic. Finally it is Guild ESports (GILD) and Cellular Goods (CBX).
Ahead of West Ham vs Kidderminster and Wales vs Ireland I am obviously rushing to get things done. But this is a full length Bearcast covering Kefi (KEFI), Love Hemp (LIFE) and Powerhouse Energy (PHE)
Now that it is cash generative, pro tem, ADVFN (AFN) reckons that its shares are undervalued. Of course Clem Chambers, the globe trotting boss of the websites group, has been saying this for years as the stock price tanked and I reckon that Cheryl Cole is missing out on a damn good time here in North Wales. We are all entitled to our opinions.
Will Joshua ever make it back to school? There appear to be suggestions that Wales’s bone idle teachers will postpone his education in why white privilege makes him an automatic victim by yet another day. In the podcast I discuss why Cliff Weight is wrong about share options, the Chill Brands (CHLL) spoof and then took a detailed look at AIM China play Univison Limited (UVEL) which looks tome to be a zero. Have you looked at what this loss making indebted POS spunked £949,000 on during the first half? In signing off on interims,Nomad Spark Advisory is ‘avin’ a bubble.
Every day until New Year’s Day we’ll publish a picture taken from the window of a ShareProphets reader. Today, Tom W. from Wales. Said Tom on 24 December, ‘The mother in law has been here almost a day so now considering pitching a tent in the cold wet field for the duration.’
I start with a report on life at the only place in the world wetter than Wales. Will harvester B have to swim across the dry river to make it home? There are photos on my site but it is getting a bit nerve wracking. I look at crypto and answer questions from reader Guy as to whether it is a bubble. I discuss the ethics of Matt Earl closing most of his Civitas Social Housing (CSH) short and I admit again to being bored by Ariana (AAU) while others are bored by Optibiotix (OPTI) but is that a reason to sell?
I am not so keen on pubs these days and my feelings on my fellow residents of the rain sodden* land that is Wales fluctuate. But I have invested a modest sum as a present for my daughter in a fund raise that closes at midnight Sunday. If you like pubs or Wales or both I urge you to join me on the shareholder list. Will I make money? I doubt it so this is like most stocks on AIM but this is a good cause.
Just how many profits, or rather lack of profits, warnings has IQE (IQE) issued during the 21 years since its 2000 IPO at c400p. The shares are today 40p after the Pride of the Welsh tech sector added another warning to its, already extensive, collection. I hope that folks have listened to my warnings over many years that this is a dog with fleas, or ci gyda chwain as we say here in the post-industrial, rain sodden, second world province.
It is not that he is a great investor yet. But perhaps when he is a bit older he might consider this present something to treasure.
I commented earlier this week my predicted COP26 lack of meaningful outcome would have little relevance to the wider investment world. But that does not mean it has had no impact to my thinking or investment cases I consider. Unfortunately, Provident Resources (PVR) has had its investment case holed below the waterline for me by a COP26 side deal.
I start with a few notes on horticulture here in Wales then move onto questioning my strongly held belief that Supply@ME Capital (SYME) is a worthless fraud. Then I explain why the recent Cenkos note on Skinbiotherapeutics (SBTX) is wrong and how, via its website, the company faces an acid test. Actually the website I refer to has now been amended as you can see HERE. But not before my contact placed an order. Finally I look at Vast Resources (VAST) and its shocking placing followed by even more shocking no-one is watching O’clock results.
Peter Brailey has explained numerous times on this website why Simec Atlantic Energy (SAE) is a zero in waiting. Its technology is suspect. It is year away from ever generating cash in a best, wildly optimistic, scenario and it has some ludicrous mini bonds which it cannot hope to repay where repayment is coming up fast. But to add to its woes it is now going to be screwed by the Government of land which, by 30 yards, I call home, Wales.
Today is not only Joshua’s Birthday but also 100 days to Christmas and also Dydd Owain Glyndwr Hapus!. So I am busy cake making. Maybe a picture later after I burn my own house down in honour of the last Welsh Prince of Wales. In the podcast I discuss naughty corporate brokers, Optibiotix (OPTI) and Novacyt (NCYT)
I have been a keen cyclist all my life. And even if I am probably too old now to climb the infamous Alpe d’Huez climb in less than an hour, I can still push around my LeMond Buenos Aires carbon road bike at a decent speed. Whilst I could ramble on about the epic Tour of Britain route in Wales later today which I look forward to watching on TV, we need to focus on the investment world and that brings me to Halfords (HFD).
It has just been brought to my attention that ADVFN has been hosting a (brief) thread dedicated to discussing my demise. It has been live since February 17 as you can see below. It’s only point is discussing my demise something spurred on by my exposes of and obtaining the suspension of, the fraud that is Supply@ME Capital (SYME). Does ADVFN really think that offering a platform to discuss such a matter is appropriate. Will it take firm action and not only can the thread but ban the sick mind who created it? I have asked the question of ADVFN Boss Mike Hodges this morning?
Having suffered the shocking customer experience of Curry’s yesterday, including an attempt to sting me for £45 with a false claim, I enquired of the press office at Dixons Carphone the owner, as to why its store was celebrating a Pride weekend? Much to my surprise Chloe, from the press office answered my email this morning stating:
I am back in Wales as of the wee hours and reflect on that. Today has been plum harvesting day. In the podcast, I look at Jubilee Metals (JLP) where I am out but should I dive back in and Ariana Resources (AAU) where I am in but should I dive out? Then the two dogs both beloved of the Sith Lord Zak Mir: Argo Blockchain (ARB) and Remote Monitored Systems (RMS).
I fly back to Wales tomorrow so have wasted too much of my life filling in moronic covid related forms today. I cannot say that i am happy to be heading back. I start with Luke Johnson’s warning on WFH and I rather think that on some points I disagree with my friend. Then onto UK regulation and its failings ref today’s two articles on Vast Resources (VAST) and the bombshell on the Zoetic (ZOE) fraud.
It is my penultimate Sunday in Greece and I consider the idiot Mark Drakeford and special hurdles I face in returning to Wales. I have spent the afternoon poisoning frigana in the snake fields. Photos tomorrow but I discuss that. Then I ask listeners to do a final chip in to raise another £495 to see loathsome pig Neill Ricketts sweating in court. Please donate HERE. Finally, I ask you to send 2 emails to aimregulation@Lseg.com tonight. One on Central Copper Resources and why the IPO must be stopped and one on why sleazy Tim Yeo must be sacked at Powerhouse Energy (PHE).
Forgive the crude title or love it if you are Matthew and his dog. I could not resist. I start with a discussion of the tyranny of village facebook pages prompted by my latest spat with some villagers of Holt in Wales HERE. Then I look at Kefi (KEFI), Zoetic (ZOE), Kanobo (KNB), Supply@ME Capital (SYME), Block Energy (BLOE) and the bitcoin pump by America’s Neil Woodford and others. Ian Westbrook is now at just under £12,000 and has ten days to reach £20,000 to see the loathsome Neill Ricketts at the next stage. To call the bluff of the Versarien (VRS) bully, please donate HERE. PS Darren points out it is the 26th not the 27th. He is correct.
Oh dear. What have I been accused of now? All is revealed in the photos below. I end by thanking you all as we are now at nearly £40,000 for Rogue Bloggers for Woodlarks. Thanks to all who have donated. To those still to chip in, as we are just c£8,000 short, please do so HERE. Sunday’s training walk will be the most grim yet. In the podcast, I look at Amigo (AMGO), Evil Knievil’s “scum” comment, Hurricane Energy (HUR), Skinbiotherapeutics (SBTX) and Novacyt (NCYT).
And now from Wales, by just 30 yards, it is my new weekly video show. This costs 99p per episode, and you can either listen to, or watch, a sparky interview with Red Rock Resources (RRR) boss Andrew Bell and then a detailed four way with myself, Chris Bailey, Gary Newman and Nigel Somerville on all things mining. Which metals are the ones to be in and why and how to play that. If you invest in mining stocks this show is for you..You can access the show HERE
Nigel Somerville agonised at the weekend about who to vote for on May 6. In answer to his questions, various of our writers will, over the coming days, suggest who is worthy of your support. Last up is myself explaining why, here in Wales, we should vote for the cottage burning lunatics of Plaid Cymru.
Well, you still don’t get a prize. Find your own beer, sit in the most comfortable seat, and, under no circumstances, can you Google the answer. Only I can do that. There are no prizes but post your scores in the comments for bouquets and brickbats.
And now from Wales, by just 30 yards, it is my new weekly video show. This costs 99p per episode, and you can either listen to, or watch, some sparky interviews with Charlie Morris a bitcoin guru where we also discuss gold and the markets and Malcolm Palle of Aquis listed Coinsilum which is now an NFT play Plus there are a few thoughts on wider stockmarket issues from me. This bitcoin, blockchain & NFT special has a lot of gags but is also, I hope, pretty informative.You can access the show HERE
I start with a few words on the late Phil the Greek and reference an article I wrote exactly one month ago HERE on the liberal US celeb Joy Behar calling out Phil and his family as Nazis. I reflect on the weather here in Wales and how tomorrow’s 20 mile training walk for Woodlarks will be very unpleasant indeed. So please do support me with a donation HERE. Then I discuss the saintly Vin Murria and share sales at Summerway (SWC) and for the first and last time in history I am a bit uneasy about all of this. Then the debate on whether to back the Skinbiotherapeutics (SBTX) or the Optibiotix (OPTI) charger?
I have spent the past day sorting out books and furniture at my late father’s house and reflect on that. Then I discuss Hurricane Energy (HUR) and why I am not selling my shares in MyHealthChecked (MHC) yet, and why they will pass through 10p fairly soon.
I start with Boris and the blonde and what it says about double standards for the public sector (our servants) and the private sector. My big political scoop of the day, BTW, is HERE. Then I discuss procrastinating ahead of a Woodlarks training walk. The weather is foul here in Wales but off I go so as you listen, think of my suffering and donate HERE. Then it is onto Hargreaves Lansdowne (HL), poodle journalists, Link and Neil Woodford.
Simec Atlantis Energy (SAE) updated the market yesterday that the Uskmouth Power Station planning application has been “called in” for determination by the Welsh Government. That in itself is bad news for shareholders as this will cause delay. However that is far from the entirety of the bad news.
And now from Wales, by just 30 yards, it is my new weekly video show. This costs 99p per episode, and you can either listen to, or watch, some sparky interviews with Tony Manini of Asiamet (ARS) which, I am starting to think, I have called wrong twice in 5 weeks and then gold guru Ross Norman on where the precious metals are going this year. As a Jubilee Metals (JLP) shareholder his biggest call is the most exciting for me. As ever, on the macro view and on bitcoin, Ross is brilliant. Then from me I discuss where UK small cap shares will go in the current climate. You can access the show HERE
Our esteemed IT genius Darren says that there are so many pictures of my garden in badgerland Wales, the latest going up last night, and that my bleatings about snow stopping play are so pathetic that we should post a picture of his garden in the socialist paradise of Canada this morning. Okay.
It is such a good joke I think I make it about 5 times in what follows. And now from Wales, by just 30 yards, it is my new weekly video show. This costs 99p per episode, and you can either listen to, or watch, some sparky interviews with Harry Adams of Kefi Gold & Copper (KEFI), where i am a loyal shareholder expecting the shares to double or more by mid year, and also Dominic Frisby. The singer, songwriter, comedian, gold guru, bitcoin expert and libertarian is on great form especially on the bitcoin/gold issue and tips the only AIM stock he owns and explains why. You will laugh and learn with him. You can access the show HERE
At least this moron is not discussing having me killed but it would be fair to say that this shareholder in Supply@ME Capital (SYME) would not be your first pick for the pub quiz team. In fact, there are more signs of intelligent life on the planet Neptune than in this post from the LSE Asylum below. When shareholders in a company are this dumb, obsessive and determined to post demonstrable untruths, it is always a bit of a red flag. A hat tip to CZ for this spot.
Only kidding Mahmud my friend, but here is a Dog’s Arse for you which arrived in Wales today. In the podcast, I look at ASOS (ASC), Boohoo (BOO), Remote Monitored Systems (RMS), Ridgecrest (RDGC), MyHealthChecked (MHC), Nightcap (NGHT), the green madness of Joe Biden and a stat showing how he will screw female athletes, and Asiamet (ARS).
Here are five long reads that have nothing to do with shares. Put the kettle on, find a comfy chair. You have the time, don’t you?
I start with the weather. Guess what it is like in Wales today. I end with Joe Biden, what I shall NOT be watching tonight, what I fear from the next four years and why. In between, I look at IQE (IQE), Bidstack (BIDS), Xtract Resources (XTR), Eurasia Mining (EUA) and Greatland Gold (GGP). But it is mainly IQE.
And now from Wales, by just 30 yards, it is my new weekly video show. This costs 99p per episode, and you can either listen to, or watch, some sparky interviews with Chris Gilbert of Fox Marble (FOX) and Dr Doom David Scott. I discuss averaging down and after news this week Fox is a care case where that is justified. This will – as I explain in thde show – be a multibagger from here. Meanwhile Dr Doom is now a bull. we discuss shares, bonds, real estate, bitcoin and gold in a must listen to interview. Then there are a few thoughts on companies you must NOT own, including Powerhouse Energy (PHE).You can access the show HERE
Of course, here in Wales, you can get Covid from sledging but Joshua and I will risk it and as the first snow fell today, his excitement was off the scale. Sadly, the snow has not lasted. Fingers crossed for tonight. In the podcast I discuss tips of the year contests (as opposed to our 22 tips of the year) and laugh at Justin Urquhart-Stewart. I look at two reasons the bulls spout for bullishness and discuss. And I look at executive turnover and greed among FTSE 100 fat cats.
Every day until New Year’s Day, we’ll publish a picture of the view through a reader’s window. This is the seventh year we’ve asked our readers for their photos, and we have received photos from all over the planet. It’s one thing to know that we have tens of thousands of readers, it’s another to see proof of it.
Okay, the pantomime at the theatre in Wrexham is cancelled this year along with Christmas thanks to the clinically insane leader of Wales, Mr Mark Drakeford. Instead, thanks to AIM listed Remote Monitored Systems (RMS), we are treated to a performance of a new pantomime. Chancer spivs Paul Ryan & Trevor Brown, your AIM Cesspit career is behind you! Oh no it’s not! Oh yes it is! Or it soon will be.
I start with Joshua’s Advent calendar where window 20 leads neatly to Lyin’ Matt Hancock and the illegal escape of daughter Olaf and her mother Big Nose to stay with Olaf’s grandmother in West Wales. Then I discuss the difference between contrarian investing and bad investing with reference to Peter Brailey’s article today on oil stocks. Finally, I flag up what to expect from 23rd December on this website. Get your camera ready!
Here in Wales, thanks to First Minister, Mad Mark Drakeford, all 50 JD Wetherspoon (JDW) pubs are shuttered and will stay so for the foreseeable future. As I noted in a photo article just published, life just over the border in “free” England is not much better for the boozers. Tim Martin is, yet again, my hero of the day, using Wetherspoon’s AGM as a platform to expose the Government and a supine 4th estate which laps up lockdown lies without question. The great man opines:
Here in Wales, all 50 of Tim Martin’s JD Wetherspoon (JDW) pubs are now closed as a reaction to crackpot Mark Drakeford’s latest mad plans. Yet Covid cases are roofing it as never before. Lockdowns do not work and today Tim Martin has issued a statement making it clear why and how badly we are going wrong in the UK. The great man says:
Hello Share Shifters. You don’t hear of the fabled Santa Rally these days. After all, we do have more important virus-related issues to consider. However, there will be the usual Christmas boost to most shares and added to the joy of new vaccines that should see a bigger seasonal boost than ever to our shares. Though, as always, the opportunity to make money will be limited as the New Year should bring the usual market hangover.
I am still under the weather hence my rasping voice. I look at more madness in Wales, why Biden will win – and it is not cheating – and at Wishbone Gold (WSBN).
I did what 3 million Welsh residents could not do today and had a pub lunch. But I’ve broken the border and am back at the Welsh Hovel. I discuss my day, why I think Nigel is wrong on investing in residential property and ask why Link is being sued over Neil Woodford’s crimes yet he seems able to escape scot free.
Perhaps I should have included idiotic government edicts in that list as well, but it is clear to me that the globe faces a massive financial crisis. We’ve been around the block on the Coronavirus pin that popped the everything bubble and that it could have been any old pin but where we are today is really scaring me. The question is where does one turn?
In today’s podcast I recount three crossings of the border out of house arrest Wales into free England and on a visit to a local store. I discuss Carolyn Harris MP on kettles, a woman who makes Matt Hancock seem like Einstein. I discuss what a dead cat bounce actually is with reference to Malcolm’s article of earlier and also why I’m glad fund managers are telling MP’s where to stick it when it comes to who should run Boohoo.com (BOO)
For reasons which are nothing to do with the insanity of Mark Drakeford, I cannot work properly today at the Welsh Hovel hence this bearcast is short. I explain those reasons and hope to be back to normal by Saturday. In the podcast, I discuss that impending lockdown and also last night’s debate between Donald Trump and China Joe Biden and what it means for November 3.
Tomorrow, notwithstanding the house arrest fire break that starts at 6PM tonight, I head over the border to England. I do so perfectly legally, because I am doing so to get my annual flu jab. There is no surgery in our village here in Wales so almost all of us are registered with an English infidel GP a few hundred yards away on the other side of the river. Once in England I may wish to go shopping or head out for lunch at a restaurant or to go for a snifter at a boozer.
I am back here at last and allow a bit of time for personal matters. Then it is on to Optibiotix (OPTI), Skinbiotherapeutics (SBTX), Verditek (VDTK) and G3 Exploration (G3E)
Lockdown in our part of Wales starts in just under two hours. The Mrs has already escaped to England with Joshua. I am staying here but need some supplies so must rush to get them from a store where they don’t make you wear a face nappy before the North Wales fuzz sets up roadblocks on the bridges over the River Dee. Before my Dukes of Hazard style contraband run, I discuss various conspiracy theories over Rolls Royce (RR.) and IAG (IAG). I look at the massive issues now hanging over Verditek (VDTK) as I expose its latest desperate ramping and another past lie. Finally, Dev Clever (DEV), what is going on with Asimilar (ASLR) and Mark Horrocks as its share price slides again.
Alessandro Zamboni’s mad followers are desperate for him and his worthless company, Supply@ME Capital (SYME) to sue me for libel. I want him to sue me too as the disclosure process would be a hoot. I really want to say “see you in Court Bitchez” but very wisely, especially after Wednesday’s slam dunk market abuse, Zamboni says he is not going to sue. And his excuse?
And now from Wales, by just 30 yards, it is my new, I hope, weekly video show. This costs 99p per episode, and you can either listen to, or watch, some sparky interviews with bear raider Matt Earl on the markets, the real economy and on 2 stocks where he is short (IQE & Boohoo) and one where he might be soon (Future PLC). we focus on Boohoo. There is also a detailed interview with Andrew Bell of Red Rock Resources (RRR). Its shares are 0.82p and what Bell says is ground breaking. I am on record as saying I shall eat my hat on video if the shares are not 1.26p before Christmas. I now reckon 1.65p is achievable and this is explained very clearly. Finally I return to the liars at Verditek (VDTK), why it is drowning in red flags and more. You can access the show HERE
Okay, this is only one store in a medium sized Welsh village. The one I live in. Perhaps, unbeknown to me, absolutely all of my fellow villagers spend their nights re-reading the works of Ayn Rand, brushing up on Austrian economics or on the greatest 100 quotes of Ronald Reagan and we are somehow atypical. My instincts are that this is not an unusually enlightened place. And thus in light of my article earlier in the week on #BoycottBenandJerrys and the woke hypocrisy of Unilever (ULVR) I bring you a photo from the village store.
Someone who does not have a Shareprophets subscription (so cannot see what I write or hear what I say) has been in contact to abuse me. The name rang a bell. David Dunham, Daveycaferacer. His latest missive reads:
I start with a few words on the summer weather here in Wales. then it is on to Big Sofa (BST). Then onto a few words about Neill Ricketts, Versarien (VRS), Rolls Royce (RR.), me, Cheryl Cole and the company's latest promo video HERE. Finally, onto Wirecard a German Norfolk which tests the Roger Lawson thesis on how to deal with short sellers to destruction as it implodes.
With gift aid we are now just a few hundred quid shy of raising the £48,000 needed to ensure that amazing Woodlarks can survive the Covid lockdown and continue its work next year. So if you have donated I thank you and if not please do so HERE. It would be great to end the weekend with the job done. The Mrs and Darren combined to put up a few photos of yesterday’s 33.3 mile walk so here is the full story.
Myself and some friends from here, the last village in Wales, walked the track around the 3 farthest fields at the Welsh Hovel and it is 1.1 kilometres long. That means that on June 13 I shall walk the circuit 50 times exactly raising the money Woodlarks needs just to survive into 2021. Today I did three laps as I faced a busy day. Tomorrow it will be ten. Please donate a few quid today HERE. In the podcast I consider in long detail the timeline of major share dealings at AJ Bell (AJB) which just does not look right to me. There are a stack of questions going begging. Then it is onto Eurasa (EUA) and what will happen on Friday. Will SP Angel again show that it will act for anyone or will AIM Regulation wade in to ensure Eurasa is booted off the AIM Casino? I discuss that matter in detail.
We're inviting you to send pictures in of what you see out of your window and/or of your new workspace. Just email them to email@example.com . Today, we're looking at the view of Tom, 30 yards into Wales. The first photo was from two weeks ago when the tree was full of blossom. Yesterday's photo is of the grass below a tree whose branches are now bare, Below it the petals lie as if the lawn is covered with pink snow.
We're inviting you to send pictures in of what you see out of your window and/or of your new workspace. Just email them to firstname.lastname@example.org . Today, we're looking at the view of Tom, 30 yards into Wales.

We're inviting you to send pictures in of what you see out of your window and/or of your new workspace. Just email them to editorial@shareProphets.com Today we're looking at the Welsh hovel of Tom.
I start with a few thoughts on how folks here in our village are showing their good side and how some businesses in doing so and adapting are showing the way forward for capitalism. Then I look at the Boeing, British Airways and Easyjet (EZJ) bailout conundrums facing our leaders. Easyjet has just scored a big own goal on that front and almost deserves to perish, hence the share price move today. I look at Crest Nicholson (CRST) and also at R4E (R4E) which is either a five bagger or bust.
I write by a candle. I have no power here in Wales and am using my mobile to access the internet and it is dying. So I must be brief, it is Neil Woodford and fraud on the agenda today.
I start with a few words on Brexit Day and how we celebrated it HERE in Wales. Then with case studies Toople (TOOP) and Haydale (HAYD) I look at clear Nomad and adviser failings harking back to those at African Potash (AFPO) and suggesting why it is vital that, now, heads start to roll. I also discuss Future (FUTR) and Optibiotix (OPTI) and suggest that you all follow the great example of No Gold HERE
Every day until New Year's Day, we'll publish a picture of the view through a reader's window. Today, ShareProphets shares our reader's views from Spain and Wales.
In today's podcast I explain what happened with Mrs Chav's pussy and also about how the move to Wales and the Grim North went and why this is now a bigger project than the Greek Hovel. I cover Bould (BOU) and systemic market abuse, Telit (TCM) and its dire results and the threats to Nigel Wray and myself from Julie Meyer. I gather the Times has also been threatened and it is standing its ground. How do you think I will respond ahead of a 5PM deadline? Meanwhile we are now at 25% of our £40,000 rogue bloggers for Woodlarks target and i urge you to check out the rioll call of heros ( even if you are a dripping lefty who thinks my world view stinks) and join them HERE.
Come home to a real fire...buy a second home in Wales. You remember the sketch. Anyhow, the Mrs and i are looking and pondering because, as you know, she wants to pursue her career and I want to rear goats. The exercise, however, throws up very real questions about house prices. Moving on I look at Bushveld Minerals (BMN), Optibiotix (OPTI), Avanti Communications (AVN), Imaginatik (IMTK), Redhall (RHL) and Mitie (MTO) another company whose former boss helps to make Jeremy Corbyn's quite insane policies seem almost desirable.
Mrs Stacey says that I have been spending too much time in the Punter’s Return reading dull articles about shares and that we need a break. She says that I need inspiration for my next novel and so has suggested that we head off on one of those holidays advertised during Midsomer Murders for a more mature and sophisticated audience.
There suddenly seems to be a lot of excitement all over twitter and the bulletin boards about a tiny AIM shell called Infinity Energy SA (INFT) – but of course that wouldn’t have anything at all to do with the recent placing and placees looking to offload for a quick profit!
In a rash move yesterday, while wandering around "the book town" of Hay on Wye I splashed out £100 on an investment which my father is not so sure about but I reckon is a winner. Having checked a few websites overnight I reckon I am 30% ahead on my trade already but I am holding this as over 20 years it will be a multibagger.
I could not sleep and found myself scouring the interweb for data on poverty and population for the town of Blaenavon where I visited a coal mine on Monday ( see HERE). I plan a major podcast on that when I am back in internet friendly civilisation, i.e. England. On the markets I look at Pearson (PSON), Nostra Terra (NTOG) and the idea that we are seeing a market blow-off. I dismiss one conspiracy theory about market makers then move on to Mitie (MTO) - Matt Earl is da King! - and then to Rosslyn Data (RDT).
Hello Share Mates. My flight was about two hours late getting into Cardiff Airport after my trip to Munich. Then the plane was held for about another hour because all the lights had gone out in the terminal due to a massive power cut. So I missed the big match between Wales, where I live, and Portugal where I don't. Consequently I'm penning this in the early hours of the morning. Worse still, in a few hours' time, I will be under the surgeon's knife.
Some of my wife's pals are such patronising bastards. They work in the public sector, read the fecking Guardian and are so fucking self righteous they can drive me up the wall as they let it be known that they just know what is good for the rest of us, we ignorant oiks. Today they sent my blood pressure soaring as I explain HERE. Then it is onto Glenwick (GWIK) and why the poltroons can't get their maths right and African Potash (AFPO) which is worth 0p. Finally a division with my daughter & her mother, Big Nose, looms, it is Wales vs Northern Ireland.
Hello Share Tuggers. Armchair tycoons like us tend to be attracted to sectors which are in the news. The big ones - like banks and oil giants, for example. And we all know what’s been happening to them over the last few years.
AIM listed biotech Reneuron (RENE) has today announced that it has completed the move of all of its operations from Surrey to Pencoed, Bridgend, Wales. Hooray...welcome to the most expensive job creation programme in history paid for with YOUR money.
Hello Share Samplers. As I write this, there is a dire threat of the heaviest rainfall in my West Wales neck of the woods for 100 years. It seems to be the next incarnation of that huge snow fall which covered New York. Though as the temperature here is a mid spring 13 degrees, it will fall as rain, not the magical sparkly stuff.
Oh dear, looks like a few more troubles at 't mill for joke company Worthington Group (WRN). Last week I asked why Worthington had not been dissolved for failing to file its accounts for the year to September 30th 2014. It seems as if the wheels are turning at Companies House in Cardiff...
Stellar Resources (STG) has been yet another company connected to serial entrepreneur David Lenigas which has been a disaster for its long-term shareholders. Sure, insiders and the odd lucky trading punter have made cash on this stock, but for the overwhelming majority of Stellar’s small army of shareholders this has been a shockingly poor investment.
Hello Share Smackers. As I write this modest little column, my IQE (IQE) shares have leapt on the day by 12%. This is jolly good because I've been ambivalent about this investment.
