Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: swimming wearing the Emperor's New Clothes

I mix metaphors, after a hard session watering the lawn for ShareStock. Thereafter, I discuss: Canadian Overseas Petroleum (COPL); Wandisco (WAND) and a wasted decade; Argo Blockchain (ARB) and why Mark, who is right about most things, is wrong; Vast Resources (VAST); Tertiary Minerals (TYM); Guild ESports (GILD); and Wildcat Petroleum (WCAT).

Wandisco – absolutely appalling MBE winning results – when will this £170 million bubble burst?

A week ago, Dave Richards - CEO of Wandisco (WAND) - was tweeting pictures of himself suited and booted, as well as his Mrs dressed up to the nines, as they headed to the residence of comrade Elizabeth Windsor. Today, he proudly waffles on about 2021 results from Wandisco. Only when you read the notes buried at the bottom, are you reminded of the dire realities. It could go bust, and will inevitably do a bailout placing - but is that enough? This is a train crash, and, rather than serving up nauseatingly misleading statements, Richards should admit to the facts.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: The sordid truth emerges about Wandisco & the Equities First Hoods, Dave Richards should shoot and/or fire his advisers

I follow up on yesterday’s bearcast on Wandisco (WAND) and the deal done by CEO Dave Richards with the hoods at Equities First Holdings (EFH). Dave called me up. I explain why he is naive not dishonest but why he needs to grill his advisers. Was there a brown envelope? Who penned the RNS which now looks even more dishonest with what I tell you today? Dave should shoot and/or his advisers as they have landed him in the reputational soup.  I then look at today’s latest  disgusting revelations on the Charlie Wood Hydrogen and Helium SPAC spoof IPOs, at the utter naivety of Aquis and I have advise for certain City folk on what they should do as the regulator has failed. Liam, Fungai and he who shall not be named you know what to do. I look at Bowleven (BLVN) and also at Caracal Gold (GCAT) asking who is selling?

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: BREAKING - Equities First Holdings is back - Wandisco officially now uninvestable!

I start with good news for those who like salacious financial markets sleaze.I have been doing more digging into the David Lenigas, Charlie Wood & Anthony Eastman cesspit and this will become a series. Another installment tomorrow. And as a bonus there is a new bombshell on Julie “Lingerie on Expenses” Meyer MBE on its way. Who’s been a very naughty girl then? Then the Wandisco (WAND) shocker. I explain why today’s RNS is deceitful and why this makes the company uninvestable. Then it is onto Nanosynth (NNN), Darren Winters, The High Street Grp and a £60 million FCA mini-bond failure and finally, another villain of these pages, Colin Bird and a few thoughts on why shares in African Pioneer (AFP) may be tanking. PS I see that dodgy HK360 Limited has been forced to admit its sold its Net Zero Infrastructure (NZI) shares after yesterday’s letter to the FCA from myself. Will Net Zero now force TR1s from other shareholders who have dumped or doesn’t it care about the rules?

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Let us pray for Thirsty Paul Scott and his boss Ed at Stockopedia

Thirsty Paul Scott and his boss Ed Croft at Stockopaedophile do not like me. Maybe that explains Paul's very sad attack on Optibiotix (OPTI) yesterday which was strewn with factual errors and poor analysis. Or maybe Paul was just pissed after pouring too much vodka on his cornflakes that day. I go through his article pointing out the string of errors. Clearly Paul is not a well man and we should pray for him.  Elsewhere I look at Sabien (SNT), its knob head boss, dodgy share dealing, the cash crisis and why it is fecked. I cover Cabot (CAB), Wandisco (WAND) and then take a look at Motif Bio (MTFB) - a share tip from Malcolm Stacey where, I have told him, you all deserve an update - and a related party Amphion (AMP), which looks pretty fecked too.

Video: Dave Richards of Wandisco starts to stick it to the City great and good, this will be fun

I have always liked Dave Richards of Wandisco (WAND) and indeed own a few shares. In the video below he tells the BBC how his firm was almost ruined and wiped out by folks parachuted on to the board from big corporations. But that is only half the tale. The question is who imposed them and backed them? The answer is City advisors and institutional fund managers. I spoke to someone close to Dave this morning and Dave will spill the beans on the City grandees who almost screwed his company up. He's a brave guy for speaking out. This is going to be illuminating and entertaining and will cause some real discomfort in the Square Mile. Bring it on...

The revelations this week about how both Teathers Financial (TEA), notably HERE & HERE, and the former manager at Wandisco (WAND), HERE, have pillaged shareholder funds to allow management, their wives and pals to live the high life have been shocking. That the Teathers boys thought racking up a bar tab in one night which was greater than the UK average post tax monthly wage just shows how distorted was their value set. But this is the tip of a very enormous iceberg on AIM and among the crony capitalists who service AIM Companies. And it's all your money.

Wandisco - CEO Dave Richards "unfired" but the ex Sage crew purged from board - the tale of the cat flying first class

On Thursday 29 September 2016 at 10.41 AM Wandisco (WAND) boss Dave Richards resigned. Or so we were told. The RNS prepared by Non Exec chairman Paul Walker (who agreed to take a massive pay hike and go Exec) stated that Richards was "stepping down.". No reason was given. In fact Richards had been fired by Walker, head of the "Sage crew" within the firm who had been battling Richards for a good while, the main issue being costs: Richards ( the founder) wanted restraint, the men from the "big company" had other ideas. Today Richards was reinstated. It gets better still and more farcical.

I start with today's placing news from Deltex Medical (DEMG). I do not reckon that this will be its last placing and its language stinks at every level. The money will be used for "working capital". Bollocks. It means to "fund our ongoing fucking losses". And there is more. Yes this is a bad language special. And if you are a Guardian reading loser who thinks the NHS is cash starved you will also be offended.  I also look at Petro Matad (MATD), Petroceltic (PCI), Rose Petroleum (ROSE) and once again push Wandisco (WAND) for a statement. Is there a "strategic review" yet? How close are you to tits up time?

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast 29 January: Wandisco needs to issue an RNS NOW!

Is Wandisco (WAND) negotiating a trade sale as I hear or is it going bust? Either way it needs to issue an RNS now. Elsewhere I wander back to the days of Turnip Townsend to discuss why deflation could be the new norm in light of news from Tokyo overnight. At a company level I cover ITM Power (ITM), Proxama (PROX), Condor Gold (CNR), Peer TV (PTV) and the over ramped shite that is Glenwick (GWIK)

Naughty naughty Wandisco - but breaching AIM Rules the least of its problems

A extra bag of crisps for The Deputy Sheriff of AIM for spotting a bit of a rule breach by ailing Wandisco (WAND). Given that it is almost out of cash and that insolvency looms if it cant get a rescue bailout underway, perhaps this is just a minor distraction?

Tom Winnifrith Christmas Eve Bearcast - A message praising David Lenigas and other matters

In this podcast I discuss Chris Oil's Christmas carol, part 1 HERE and parts 2 & 3 to follow. My Christmas Carol series always gives me great pleasure to write and I hope you enjoy reading them. And I beg you to fill in the Christmas win an iPad survey HERE. Then it is onto David Lenigas, Sam Antar, Petroceltic (PCI) and Wandisco (WAND) and to what little treats are in store for tomorrow. Ho Ho Ho. Finally i wish you all a Merry Christmas, none of this PC seasons greetings bollocks from me.

WANdisco – after-hours contract wins RNS: Why?

It is pretty unusual for a company to slip out good news at no-one-is-watching o’clock, but that is what AIM-listed and rather short of cash WANdisco (WAND) pulled out of the hat yesterday at 5.26pm. Is the news really that good? And talking of hats…..…is this all just a precursor to passing the hat around to raise some much needed cash?

A song for Wandisco shareholders from Iron Maiden

Shares in Wandisco (WAND) are sharply lower again today. They now trade at 87.5p, off 6.5p on the session and down from 140p a month ago. But there is far worse to come - as Steve Moore and I have warned time and time again - see HERE. And so with a few comments here is some sage advice from Iron Maiden.

Tom Winnifrith BearCast 30 November - Producing the Oakley Christmas Card

The annual ritual is complete. The Mrs and I have photographed my morbidly obese three legged cat Oakley in his Christmas hat and even Tara played her part posing in the hat and in a stocking. And thus our rather un-Christian cards are now in production. Awway from that I have a long look at Slater & Gordon (SGH) where the management has just allowed the bears a chance to sell even more shares. Jabba The Hutt stocks Solo (SOLO) and LGO Energy (LGO) get a mention as does Aureus Mining (AUE) with its hugely discounted placing. Alba (ALBA) is clearly lining up its next confetti issue and I comment on that as well as Blur (BLUR), Outsourcery (OUT), Wandisco (WAND), Plant Health Care (PHC), Gulf Keystone (GKP) and NAHL (NAH), Finally I commend the CEO of ValiRx (VAL) who attended Gold & Bears on Saturday and was incredibly poilite. Memo to TW. I will be less beastly to her in 2016.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast 10 November - More Lenigas material & remember I had a hippie childhood

Having been warned off by the thuggish PR to David Lenigas (HERE) I have asked AIM Regulation to get the low down on Big Dave's trades or otherwise in LGO Energy (see HERE). And then what next? Aha Octagonal (OCT), an AIM listed company where the aforementioned Mr David Lenigas is involved - needless to say its shares have slumped. Then it is onto Nanoco (NANO) and Wandisco (WAND) as well as Lonmin (LMI). Finally I commend to you last night's BBC programme by Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall on waste and the supermarkets. Can Malcolm Stacey reallysay the are ethical investments? I commend you all to watch it. Remember I grew up in a hippie self-sufficent family so maybe I am biased but I was horrified.

WANdisco plc – forecast cuts follow interim results, how long until ‘all the money’s gone’? …

I warned in March that despite having fallen from approaching 1300p to below 300p, with there no signs of profitability in sight and cash burn severe, shares in WANdisco plc (WAND) looked to remain a sell – see HERE. The following updates with the shares now around 140p and following further savage forecast reductions post results for the first half of 2015…

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast 5 October - Suspension is never good & a cheap joke

A visit to the quack today was not good news but at least the woes of English rugby and LGO Energy (LGO) are there to cheer me up. in this podcast I discuss Alexander Mining (AXM), Cloudbuy (CBUY), the hoods at Equities First Holdings LLC (EFH), Daniel Stewart (DAN), Imaginatik (IMTK), Wandisco (WAND), Mirada (MIRA), Range Resources (RRL), tech stocks vs mining stocks, Amanda Van Dyke and, to end, I can't resist a cheap joke about the rugby.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast 23 September - these folks are ALL avin a bubble

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)

Wandisco Interims – car crash ahoy!

You cannot say we did not warn you repeatedly but interims today from Wandisco (WAND) – although well spun – are a dog’s dinner. It is car crash ahoy time. When’s the next bailout placing and who would be mad enough to subscribe?

SELL!: WANdisco plc – what’s the exact nature of its HSBC credit facility?

Steve Moore previously commented on AIM-listed WANdisco plc (WAND) HERE (‘after the 2015 Q2 sales update, it’s forecast reduction time yet again!’), including noting forecasts of net cash reducing to $6.2 million at the year-end and an $8.5 million net debt position at the end of next year, with there currently a $10 million revolving credit facility in place with HSBC to March 2017. If this balance sheet position was not too close for comfort already, we now have reason to question the exact nature of the HSBC facility…

Tom Winnifrith BearCast 2nd August - a dying and snearing deadwood press, interest rates and Wandisco

My father is at Church and the the pub and so I am able to record a quick podcast covering three themes. First the snearing and dying deadwood press - something prompted by THIS. Then interest rates. And then Wandisco. For more on Wandisco, as mentioned in the bearcast, and on many other matters including why Rob Terry of Quindell (QPP) infamy will go to prison, read the latest Uk Investor Show magazine out this weekend HERE

WANdisco plc – after the 2015 Q2 sales update, it’s forecast reduction time (yet again!)

Having noted a decline in quarterly sales bookings from WANdisco plc (WAND) to $2.4 million (Q2 2014: $3.4 million) HERE, it is now forecast reduction time yet again…

WANdisco plc – slightly less PR spin attempted this time, but an update to party about?

Having changed the name of its first quarter sales update to “Fusion Attracts First Big Data Customers” as it attempted to PR spin its way out of bookings disappointment (see HERE), we now have a second quarter update (actually entitled “2015 Q2 sales update”) from WANdisco plc (WAND)…

Zak Mir's Great Request Show: Independent Oil & Gas, OneSavingsBank, Wandisco.

If you want me to analyse a stock for you just drop me a line at sqmir@hotmail.com - Today I look at Independent Oil & Gas (IOG), OneSavingsBank (OSB), Wandisco (WAND).

WANdisco plc – is the party about to start? Really?

Having last week reiterated a bearish view on WANdisco plc (WAND) – noting it was trying (and failing) to PR spin its way out of bookings disappointment, a weekend newspaper piece (see HERE) has helped the shares approaching 16% higher  to 292.5p. Does this give me cause to re-appraise my view? Er, NO…

WANdisco – trying (and failing) to PR spin its way out of bookings disappointment?

The 18th April 2013: a WANdisco plc (WAND) announcement entitled “Q1 2013 Bookings Update”. 17th April 2014: a WANdisco announcement entitled “Q1 2014 Bookings Update”. 23rd April 2015: a WANdisco announcement entitled… er, “Fusion Attracts First Big Data Customers” - despite the first sentence of the announcement noting that the company “reports on first quarter sales”. I think I can guess why…

WANdisco plc – 2014 results & research update suggest it’s far from party time here

Having been approaching 1300p a year ago, shares in WANdisco plc (WAND) currently trade below 300p following recently announced results for 2014 and a research update. What are the prospects from here?

Tom Winnifrith BearCast 12 December

I am starting to feel quite ill and am looking forward to getting back to Bristol and heading off to bed with two cats as hot water bottles and a stiff whiskey. That is not a typo, emember my genetic origins. Ahead of that today's podcast exposed Paul Farrelly MP (Lab) as a useless POS, puts the Tories on the spot on AIM regulation and covers Naibu, Daniel Stewart and the new Daniel Stewart (ZAI), Hargreves Services and Quindell. I also look at tech stocks to short: Blur, Wandisco, Mopowered and Outsourcery

Tom Winnifrith's Bearcast - 26 November, Quindell investors in denial edition

I touch on a few other companies in this podcast, notably 3Legs Resources, Wandisco and Security Resources which is leaving the AIM casino. But I focus on Quindell analysing how and why its remaining shareholders are simply in denial. I also discuss at length today's bombshell research note from Canaccord (HERE) and what it means. It means death and 0p.

Paul Scott’s Red Flag Spreadsheet

This is a truly brilliant spreadsheet from Paul Scott, the person I rate as the UK’s top share blogger and an all-round nice guy to boot.  In saying all round this is not a reference to his figure although….  Paul does not write for this site and is fiercely independent in his views but he has graciously allowed me to publish this anyway. And so especially for followers of Quindell (QPP), Globo (GBO), Outsourcery (OUT) and a good few others…

WANdisco – Edison cuts forecasts and flags equity raise looming
