I reckon these stockbrokers must earn even more that those chancers my wife gets in to clean the windows and so I am a frustrated non buyer of a shares I have not owned before. Jaya and I did some due diligence at the coal face today and I explain why I may be buying if I can get hold of the great man tomorrow.  Then it is onto Wildcat Petroleum (WCAT) and the corruption of the deadwood press (the Sunday Times in this case) and finally a detailed look at Malcolm Stacey favourite Strix (KETL) where I have been a bear.  The shares are down 69% over the past 13 months and after today's news I see an easy 30-40% more downside from here. With an EV of c£400 millionand a £270 million market cap it should be shortable and should be shorted.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: 1990s encounter in a gents urinal

I do explain the reference in full and it is not what you think. In the podcast I look at the utterly unconvincing sophistry of Colin Bird as I dissect his Bezant Resources (BZT) statement about the Caerus scandal. His sums just do not add up. And his company is insolvent. I look in detail at Bluebird Merchant Ventures (BMV) following news today and lunch on Saturday. I forgot to mention that I paid for lunch. I don't do freebies. Then Mitchells and Butler (MAB) and why old Malcolm is bonkers and finally Wildcat Petroleum (WCAT) which is an almighty sell after a spoof yesterday. that is where the urinals incident comes in.

Today's Mail on Sunday carries a nasty hit job on Richard Jennings of Align accusing him of racism. You can read it HERE. The story is clearly manufactured by Ironveld Resources (IRON). I do not know enough SA slang to comment on Jennings' words. However, amazingly the dickhead journalist not only failed to report matters showing Jennings as a supporter of poor blacks in Zim South despite having the evidence, but the whatsapp messages referred to show Ironveld driving a coach and horses through AIM Rule 11 and AIM Rule 10 so misleading its investors. I explain why that may have enabled some smart money to get out at the wrong prioe and why this should be enough to see Martin Eales and Giles Clarke fired at once. Unlike the wretched Mail I bring you the full whatsapp thread.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Explaining why Victoria and Cineworld are zeros and why Malcolm is bonkers

I start with gardening news and a bit sbout ShareStock 2022 and 2023 and urge prompt ticket booking for the former HERE. Why Victoria (VCP) is a zero in waiting is a matter for Sharestock but today I look at why Cineworld (CINE) has not collapsed yet but why it will. Then there is Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO) and why it MUST end in tears whatever PL says.  Finally I comment on the lunacy of Malcolm Stacey. I think he meant to send today's column to the Guardian letters page, it is insanity writ large.

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.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: the shock 6.22 PM death of 4D Pharma - lessons everyone can learn

At 6.22 PM yesterday evening, 4D Pharma announced the reason for its "temporary" share suspension. It wasn't a messy and discounted placing, as I suggested here, but administration. Shareholders will, I fear, lose everything. I discuss who is to blame, what can be done (nothing) and the read-across to a raft of other stocks that could go the same way, including Shield Therapeutics (STX), Cineworld (CINE), Petropavlovsk (POG), Verditek (VDTK) and more.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Gary Newman wrong to slam DDDD for being transparent and honest ahead of bailout placing

I start with a logistics issue, which may see Matthew and his dog suffer cold turkey on bearcasts for 3 or 4 days over the summer. I am working on it. Then, to 4D Pharma (DDDD), where young Gary is wrong in condemning the company; Lamprell (LAM); and Deepverge (DVRG), where I make reference to the earlier podcast special.

Tom Winnifrith Bonus Bearcast: Once Again, Deepverge Grotesquely Misleads Investors

Last year, AIM sewer poster boy,  Deepverge (DVRG), did a placing at 30p. It had misled investors on trading, and its ghastly CEO, Gerry "the arse" Brandon, slated me as not understanding investment. Today, the shares are 10.5p, after awful finals in which, as I explain in this bonus podcast, the company again - by omission rather than act - materially misleads investors. If you own this stock, lube up; there is more pain coming your way.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: I should have stayed with the young mums

But instead, I left a birthday party to record this. Such dedication. I start on why Nigel's Barkby (BARK) piece was wrong.  Then, I look at Shield Therapeutics (STX), Kefi Gold & Copper (KEFI), Naked Wine (WINE), Nostra Terra Oil & Gas (NTOG) and Trainline (TRN).

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: well done, olive harvesting genius, reader B - I am sure it is a zero

It is all panic here at the Welsh Hovel, as our first Sykes Cottages guests arrive in the annexe. Next week, our first paying guest arrives at the Greek Hovel - which you can rent HERE, although it is pretty much booked out until September. I start with B, and why you need multiple accounts to short; his triumph is on Verditek (VDTK). I then cover Dev Clever (DEV), Tirupati Graphite (TGR), Audioboom (BOOM), Corcel (CRCL) and Argo Blockchain (ARB).

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Shield Therapeutics or Verditek - which sees a share price collapse first?

I start with my wonderful son, Joshua, losing every race at Sports Day with bravery and humour. Then, onto UK Network Agency; Innovation Agri-Tech; Eden Pharma; the wretched FCA's failure on £65 million fraud, Appbox Media/One True View; Ocado (OCDO); Morses Club (MCL); Cake Box (CBOX) - where Steve is wrong; Verditek (VDTK); and Shield Therapeutics (STX).

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: happy anniversary, Forward Partners. Not! And so much pride in Joshua ahead of sports day

He might come home with a raft of certificates for "Welsh speaker of the week", or other such academic achievements, but Joshua is no great sportsman. Yet this afternoon, it is the school sports day, and the whole family is off to watch him. Discussing what lies ahead with him as we walked to school this morning, filled me with pride. In the main podcast, I look at Forward Partners (FWD) - another disastrous 2021 IPO; Petropavlovsk (POG), as it races to zero; Genflow Biosciences (GENF); MGC Pharmaceuticals (MXC) - placing ahoy; and Verditek (VDTK), where things could get very messy within days. Ref MXC, I discuss two historic examples of biotech's presenting data - on AIDS "cures", and its spoof ramp last week.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: No No No, you Bitcoin cultists! You are kidding yourselves, but nobody else

I have received a number of comments about yesterday's Bearcast. I address some of those cultists, speaking out from the last redoubt.  Then, prompted by Three Brains, I look at what a PE of 5 means as a guide to value, and why it can so often mean nothing at all.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: will ASOS ever again generate cash?

I describe Thursday morning for me and Jaya, including a stop-in with my parents-in-law.  This is relevant, as I discuss what my mother-in-law was watching on TV. I look at the house price bubble, the Bank of England, and interest rates. Then, I touch on THG (THG); ASOS (ASC); Sosandar (SOS); Zephyr Energy (ZPHR) - get your wallet out, Cliff; Wildcat Petroleum (WCAT); Kinovo (KINO); and Boohoo (BOO). I also discuss the notion that MusicMagpie (MMAG) has a list of "spiffing institutional inveestors", and that this will save the company. It won't.

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).

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Am I panicked by Skinbiotherapeutics?

I am more panicked by the IRA man objecting to my bonfire. Heck, it is not as if it were the 12th July, and I were wearing my bowler hat with an orange sash, is it? In today's podcast, I look at Skinbiotherapeutics (SBTX); Eurasia (EUA) and a Kraut moron; Supply@ME Capital (SYME); and Argo Blockchain (ARB).

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Back from bear country

I have just arrived in Wales with my battered diesel van. Bed beckons, as I am still cream-crackered following yesterday's walk. The photos below are from two towns along the route, and show the likes of me and Lucian are greeted with the respect we deserve in that part of the world. I discuss Brian Basham's 26-mile cheat, but still, he is amazing. We have now raised £29,000 with gift aid, and that should rise this week. Feel free to donate, HERE. I discuss the big macro lesson from the walk, referencing Kinovo (KINO); St James Place (STJ), and the troubles one has in a bear market; and Hargreaves Lansdown (HL). Now to bed.

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.

Evil Banksta explains why, with my 2p price target, I am far too kind to Cineworld

I estimate Cineworld (CINE) is worth c. 2p per share, as noted in yesterday's bearcast. Perhaps my greatest flaw is overkindness. It is a real failing, with which I constantly struggle.  Anyhow, Evil Banksta - being a banksta - has no such problems, and takes me to task for my generosity. He explains:

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Time to double up on the Shield Therapeutics final collapse, the money's almost all gone!

On 18 February, at 25.5p to sell, the big bear call was greeted with abuse from BB savants, who, unsurprisingly, always know better.  Shares in Shield (STX) are now 14.6p, and the final collapse to c. 5p is now set to begin. Double up on your shorts.  In this podcast, I discuss Argo Blockchain (ARB); Nostra Terra Oil & Gas (NTOG) and its unsavoury CEO, Matt Lofgran - praise be the Lord; then, I look at Genflow Biosciences (GENF), as its shares continue to tank; Challenger Energy (CHAL); Eurasia Mining (EUA); and Petropavlovsk (POG), where the target remains 0p.  Finally, I remind you that Rogue Bloggers for Woodlarks is just 4 days away, and we are at 34% of the target. If among the 92% of listeners yet to donate, do give a fiver (or a tenner), HERE.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast – today's news is a £240m damning of Neil Woodford's greed and wickedness

It is just five days to Rogue Bloggers for Woodlarks and we are at just under 33% of our target so can the 93% of listeners yet to donate please do so HERE. In today's podcast I cover the quarter of a billion quid blown, largely by Neil Woodford, at Rutherford (RUTH) and how that made Woodford,personally, even richer. I name and shame a couple of those who enabled that scam.  I look at Wildcat Petroleum (WCAT), Guild ESports (GILD) and Cellular Goods (CBX) and the piss poor Times' idea of breaking news, I mention Optibiotix (OPTI),look at Eve (EVE) which seems to be a zero to me, at spineless and busted Cineworld (CINE) and in detail at ADVFN (AFN) and its woes.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast - why Genflow is the most uninvestable stock in London and what now for a house price crash?

Today we are donating £2500 to Rogue Bloggers for Woodlarks. I don't ask you to follow suit but if you are among the 93% of listeners yet to donate to this cause with just 6 days to the event how about giving a fiver here? Then onto Genflow (GENF) in light of the Hindenburg dossier HERE. Then after observations from Chris Bailey earlier on Barratt (BDEV) I look at house prices and house builders.

The most amazing bear dossier of the year so far - Hindenburg on Enochian (and the link to UK listed Genflow)

The dossier below from bear raiders Hindenburg is the stuff of movies. You could not make it up. It strikes me that Nasdaq listed Enochian (ENOB) is a zero as the man behind it, Serhat Gumrukcu, is a lifelong criminal now facing a possible death sentence in the US as he is charged with having a whistleblowing former associate murdered. There is a UK angle which I discuss in bearcast later, the unclear links between the CEO of Genflow Biosciences (GENF), Endochian, Dandrit Inc and Serhat.  Enjoy.
