Xtract Resources – a classic Colin Bird Pump & Dump action replay from September

With some folks having paid 8p+ for shares in Xtract Resources (XTR) late last week, today the company did a placing to the sewer-dwelling clients of Novum Securities at just 4.5p.  The shares are now just 4.8p to sell. Boy those folks suckered in by the Colin Bird ramping must be hurting today. This is so familiar but I did warn you explicitly what the old scoundrel was up to.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Were Malcolm Stacey and Thirsty Paul Scott right about IQE after all?

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.

The Usual Agonising Dilemma Sets In as a Losing Penny Share Suddenly Takes off

Hello, Share Players. This modest article is out of the ordinary. Lately, I’ve been featuring companies I think stand to benefit from the covid shadow or which should recover faster than most after a nasty year. Today I feature a share which has given me a few worries, but which has suddenly taken off…

How did the companies presenting at the ShareProphets shares conference in May do in terms of share price?

Thanks to reader Paul we have an answer. Normally companies presenting at such events, as they pay to do so, do not always deliver in terms of share price gains. In fact Ed Croft of Stockopedia claims they always do the reverse, they underperform.  That would be unlike big calls from Stockopedia, which tipped Wirecard as a storming buy 2 days before what was obviously Europe’s largest fraud went tits up and also said Quindell was one of the cheapest shares on AIM. Did I mention Globo, Ed had that as a big buy too before it became a zero. Anyhow back to our show in May…

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Why Xtract stinks and moving towards a win for sleepy Joe Biden

I end with today’s placing news from Xtract Resources (XTR) and the range of reasons why this has become a pariah stock.  I start with two excuses for lateness. In the middle, what I made of last night’s Presidential debate. Trump, I judge, won it but not with a knockout. I am not calling it yet but I move my prediction from too close to call to still tight but leaning to Sleepy Joe. It is his to lose now. Correction: the debate host was from Fox not CNN – as stated inh the podcast – but is a known Trump hater and his clear partiality was all too evident.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Will Asimilar be the much deserved Waterloo of Chris Akers? This stinks!

I start with a brief discussion of Rule Britannia where it is clear that the BBC and others (including the Mrs) have not actually read the words or studied their history. I will do a much longer piece on this when back from seeing my father in Shipston. I look at Asimilar (ASLR), All Active Asset Capital (AAA), Mesh PLC, and Chris Akers – a scandal where the unravel is surely underway. I comment on DFS (DFS) and furlough economics, on Iconic Labs (ICON), and on Amigo (AMGO) as well as on Xtract Resources (XTR), where there is yet more good news making you who followed my tip and I who bought shares even richer. Also covered is NoGold who has no gold exposure and lambasts me for tipping gold shares and making you all richer… even more of a miserable old git.

Tom Winnifrith Bonus Bearcast: Bell, Adams & Bird are only heros because gold is going up, right?

I start this bonus bearcast prompted by your emails and comments while I started to make some Damson Jam with Joshua with a few comments on the wisdom or otherwise of averaging down with reference to Wishbone Gold (WSBN). Then I look at NoGold’s claim (poor fellow having no gold exposure of late) that gold is being driven higher by herd behaviour. Finally, I am told that Messrs Andrew Bell (Red Rock Resources -RRR), Colin Bird (Xtract Resources – XTR, and others), and Harry Adams (Kefi) are only looking like heroes rather than zeros, as has been the case for many years, because gold is going higher. Referencing also Mr Kerim Sener of Ariana Resources (AAU), I discuss this and the nature of investing in mining stocks.

Just when the long-suffering shareholders of Xtract Resources (XTR) thought things couldn’t get any worse, they’ve been absolutely stunned by this morning’s RNS. Well, they say it’s good to get all the bad news out at once, right? Let’s take a look at it in detail.

Xtract Resources: Jan tries to do the right thing….and messes up! Share should be suspended

I’ve been a bit harsh on Jan Nelson, the CEO of Xtract Resources (XTR) on a few occasions but, to give him credit, he tried to do the right thing at yesterday’s shareholder presentation and actually tell the truth. Unfortunately, the truth ended up being price sensitive information for a very select audience and the shares should have been suspended as a result.

Xtract – results out and surprise, surprise, the numbers make no sense!

One of my first pieces on this site back in January (HERE) highlighted the clear discrepancy between the half-year results of Xtract Resources (XTR) and all the ramping RNS’s beforehand. Despite assurances to the contrary, it appears that some things never change. Xtract announced its full year results yesterday and the revenue for the full year was £350,000.

Xtract sells Manica: Good deal?

Feeling a bit sad writing this having read the RNS issued by Xtract Resources (XTR) last week about the disposal of the Manica project to Nexus and MTI for $17.5 million. I feel that I should pay my respects.

The Dragon's Den £15,000 - what 10 AIM stocks were bought and at what price

At UK Investor Show we ran five Dragon's Den sessions where five CEOs each gave a five minute pitch and three Dragon's each picked one stock in which FIML invested £1,000 via our most excellent broker J Herbert Esq at European Wealth. And so £15,000 was invested on Tuesday Morning. Steve will track this portfolio over the year with each Dragon at liberty to place a sell order at any time. And so this is what we bought.

Xtract Resources – the promises just do not add up – an apology (I should have said more)

As a new boy to this site I feel I should apologise. A couple of people commented on the fact that my article on Sunday on Xtract Resources (XTR) was only focussed on one relatively small part of the future value of this business, namely Chepica, and that it would have been more balanced if I had mentioned other parts of the business.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast 10 January - Denial from Evil and you dear readers on Xtract & Watchstone

Evil Knievil sent me a snotty email on Watchstone (WTG) of which he is long. I think he is a bit in denial. And so to are some of our readers as they respond to perfectly good articles appearing here today by our new author Cynical Bear, notably on Xtract Resources (XTR) and Challenger Acquisitions (CHAL). All this is discussed in today's podcast.

Xtract Resources - the promises just do not add up

The first step in reviewing a business for potential investment starts with a review of the Board looking at track record, commitment and trust. There are countless examples of insufficient commitment by CEOs but I won’t focus on that here and instead will look at the issue of trust. If a business continues to under-promise and over-deliver, the share price will rerate significantly upwards over time but, unfortunately, the opposite is true, and that is much more prevalent on AIM. And this brings me to Xtract Resources (XTR), another stock promoted shamelessly by Zak Mir.

Xtract Resources: nosedives on disappointing interims, more dilution coming

Shares in Xtract Resources (XTR) have fallen 20% to 0.24p today on the company’s disappointing interim results. Xtract has been one of the most hyped stocks of 2015, rising from a low of 0.07p to a high of 0.45p on 1 June. Following the inevitable pullback in advance of 29 June’s placement, the share price settled in a range of 0f 0.215p to 0.3p, only to start rallying again last week. Cynics might wonder whether this was a pre-results pump ahead of today’s dump. Certainly anyone who bought in at yesterday’s high of 0.324p is now nursing a hefty loss, within half a trading session. The question now is can Xtract regain its momentum?

Galileo Resources pins its faith on Nevada prospects

Having newly raised £375,000 at a depressed 1.2p to pay licence fees on its gold and copper projects in the south of the US state of Nevada, AIM dog Galileo Resources (GLR) still feels unloved by the investment community. Yet the company, whose shares have fallen from more than 30p four years ago to a 12-month low of 1.25p in dire gold and copper markets , could be sitting on ‘a new Carlin Trend’, declares Colin Bird, executive chairman and 35% shareholder.

Xtract Resources - golden news makes this a speculative buy

Depressed gold at $1,092.45c (£700) an ounce and copper at below $2.40c a lb have yet to attract hordes of bargain hunters or contrarians, but AIM-quoted Xtract Resources (XTR) is keeping up the momentum in its quest to develop gold and copper opportunities across the globe. Chaired by entrepreneurial veteran Colin Bird, of Jubilee Platinum (JLP) and Tiger Resources, and steered by chief executive officer Jan Nelson, ex-boss of Pan African Resources, the company is characteristically trumpeting the discovery of a second high-grade reef system, ‘Reef System B’, at its Chepica gold and copper mine in Chile.

Xtract lines up new takeover - shares high risk buy

Expansive and newly popular Xtract Resources (XTR) is poised to make another acquisition, this time of an as yet unnamed South African gold producer capable of delivering 60,000 oz. to 100,000 oz. a year, according to chief executive officer Jan Nelson. Shares in Xtract, highlighted here in April at 0.25p, have bounced from a barely-visible 12-month low of 0.07p to 0.41p, as the company has increased potential resources in and around its three-year Chepica copper and gold project in Chile, and Nelson, ex-boss of Pan African Resources, declares the proposed acquisition, which would involve issuing shares, could ‘seriously transform’ the IM-quoted company’, now valued at £26.25 million.

Another copper move by Xtract

Xtract Resources (XTR), the recently volatile AIM performer chaired by entrepreneurial veteran Colin Bird (also head of out-of-favour Jubilee Platinum) and boasting disparate copper and gold interests in South Africa and Chile, has moved to add to its African projects. The company has signed heads of agreement with a local copper explorer to investigate 182,000 tonnes of surface oxide material with a copper grade of 0.54% at the Concordia project in South Africa’s Northern Cape.
