No Insider Dealing Honest Guv: Chill Brands car crash trading statement – it is even worse than it looks

Yesterday saw two trades of 2,005,106 and 2,550,000 Chill Brands (CHLL) shares dumped well below the offer at 14.25p. That is more than 2% of the equity. There were other big sells below the bid on Monday. Was a major shareholder at last accepting that I was right or was this just canny de-risking as today there is a trading statement which is so terrible it is hard to know where to start. No doubt the FCA will ensure there is no story of insider dealing to tell. So how bad is the statement? It is dire.

Julie "lingerie on expenses" Meyer: who's going drive you home?

Remember Drive Software? This was, according to Julie” lingerie on expenses” Meyer, going to be Tesla meets Fitbit. More like British Leyland meets Enron. Accounts for the year to March 31 2021 are out and are a car crash.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Another day of shame for AIM and why Sosandar is just not for me anymore

Today I look at three companies. I start with Skinbiotherapeutics (SBTX) where I ask if it is better to travel than to arrive? Then it is onto Sarah Willingham, Allenby Capital, The Sunday Times and their collective shame in the disgraceful AIM IPO of car crash in waiting Nightcap (NGHT). Finally I look at Sosandar (SOS).

URU Metals – More Shares, but no Cash

AIM-listed John Zorbas POS URU Metals (URU) has announced the issue of a stack of shares to settle directors’ fees and those of an adviser this morning. That to add to yesterday’s paltry subscription shares raising just £280,000  (before expenses). I would suggest that this latest splurge of confetti shows just how badly screwed the company is.

Victoria Oil and Gas – A car crash already but set to get massively worse - SELL

Victoria Oil and Gas (VOG) has had a rather turbulent recent few years, with changes of management combining with very material changes to the operating business. The company raised $17 million gross in April last year to refinance the business and set it on a positive route forward with a re-freshed board. It appears to me this was good money thrown after bad. I see little to like in this investment case.

Finablr – the car-crash continues at Red Flag Central and still no word on Dr Shetty and his mates. SELL!!

Having first landed on fully-listed Finablr at the back end of January when I asked if it was a house of cards at 95p, I have been supping at the ouzo ever since – and the shares are down again today to just 46.75p last seen. But the stock remains a slam-dunk sell – especially in the light of what has happened at fellow Shetty-inspired vehicle NMC Health (NMC). And then there is the cyber-attack at its Travelex operation….and coronavirus…..and the continued silence from the company.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: I really am going to have to go to the FRC about this one

In today's podcast I look at PureCircle (PURE), the roll call of shame and who should be publicly executed. I also look at Dev Clever (DEV), Tissue Regenix (TRX) and, once again, at Blackmore Bond a mini bond car crash which appears imminent and is another part of what will be one of the biggest financial scandals for years.

Yet another crisis at Funding Circle - this could go all the way to zero!

You all know what I think about the peer-to-peer lending Funding Circle (FCH) which i have written about negatively a couple of times in the last few months, most recently here   Back then I concluded 'you do not need to get involved... unless you are a desperate business which really, really needs finance and the mainstream banks have prudently turned you down already. For the rest of us, grab some popcorn and watch the ongoing post-IPO car crash'.  Broadly speaking this still feels a very, very prudent position to take.

A twitter gem - Polixenes13 on the Tesla car crash waiting to happen

Most material on twitter is unadulterated junk. But there is the odd gem. In the case of Tesla (TSLA) where the sell side analysts are all paid bulls, some of the best insight is on twitter. Like Lucian Miers, I regard this company as an accident, no an outright car crash, just waiting to happen. In that vein I bring you a most instructive series of tweets yesterday from @Polixines13 who knows his or her onions.

How do you know Elon Musk of Tesla is getting desperate? Look at his attacks on journalists and analysts

Ask a high quality fraudster like Sam Antar how to deal with critics in the media or on wall Street? It is easy. Do not give them the oxygen of publicity, ignore them and focus on what really matters: committing fraud. But Elon Musk of Tesla has a problem. To keep his cash guzzling baby Tesla going he needs to raise fresh debt and.or equity so tumbling bond and share prices matter and you can tell Elon is panicking. His latest outbursts show that. as you can see below.

73 Mind-Blowing Implications of Driverless Cars and Trucks - car crash ahead for the AA, BCA and others?

Hat tip to Andrew Monk of VSA for spotting this paper from Hult Business School. It does give you food for thought. Certainly why would anyone invested in a heavily indebted business with bigg exposure to the carrying value of cars as we known them ( Northgate or BCA Marketplace for example) or the AA? Maybe Neil Woodford should read this and ponder before he buys any more shares in the AA or BCA?

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: UK Oil & Gas today shows why a death spiral is a one way bet (down!)

Uk Oil & Gas (UKOG) today provides a case study in death spiral share price destruction. The only question wis whether the provider converted another tranche a few days ago and UK has not bothered to tell us or whether it converted today and is already selling hard. Elsewhere I look at the Tony Baldry car- crash on the way at Wesztminster Group (WSG) and try to put director share purchases at Condor (CNR) and Concepta (CPT) - which we own - into perspective. I look at Yolo (YOLO) which does not impress me much and blockchain madness at Vela (VELA). I ask what I should get the Mrs for Christmas, I am out of ideas.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Do you think Jamie Oliver is a tosser?

The fraud African Potash (AFPO) has until 7 January ( saturday) to find a new Nomad or its shares get booted off the AIM casino first thing Monday. On the ISDX lobster pot (now known as the NEX lobster pot) it can't get a placing away - for reasons explained in this podcast - so it will be tits up within weeks. That has implications for Blenheim Natural Resources (BNR). Jamie Oliver is blaming Brexit as he shuts six of his over-priced branded eateries. But he is just another celeb tosser don't you think? I look at the real macro headwinds the UK faces. There is comment on Crawshaw (CRAW) and then a very detailed review of Lombard Risk Management (LRM) which is, I reckon a car crash in waiting.

Wandisco Results - this is a disaster slow-mo car crash

Slater & Gordon Beer & Popcorn Results Debacle Podcast Part 3 - why did S&G's board crash the car

Car Crash IPO Lenigas Cuba now MINUS 90% after 3 months - Jabba's Excuses Brilliant

David Lenigas tries his best to ramp the crock of shit that is Lenigas Cuba (CUBA) but its shares are now just 0.5p to sell (in small amounts), that is 90% down in just over 3 months. The excuses Jabba The Hutt is offering on twitter are lamentable as you can see below. And there are also the half-truths.

Oh no Paul Scott is giving me health advice again. If he promises never ever to waterboard me again with online retail gross margins I might just quit smoking.

Then it is onto EKF Diagnostics (EKF), Moneyswap (SWAP), Oilex (OEX), Forte Energy (FTE), Alliance Pharma (APH), Iofina (IOF) and the Fitbug (FITB) dog.

Octagonal – another David Lenigas AIM car crash – looking at its investments number 2

Anyone who was mad enough to back the Octagonal (OCT) placing at 2p this June is already 57.5% down. I guess by the standards of most David Lenigas placings of late that has to be viewed as a roaring success. I first touched on Octagonal as a car crash underway HERE and yesterday discussed its first rum and coke balance sheet entry HERE. But it gets worse (for Dave) and better for me.

Was David Lenigas the source of the false rumours of a stock shortage in Leni Gas Cuba?

An explosive email has emerged, sent by David Lenigas on Friday to various brokers ahead of the disastrous Leni Gas Cuba (CUBA) IPO. Over the weekend false rumours spread across social media that there was a serious stock shortage ahead of the company’s calamitous market debut. The word was that conditions were primed for another potential New World Oil & Gas-style (NEW) short squeeze. If there were any doubt that this was all nonsense, yesterday’s crushing collapse in Leni Gas Cuba’s share price obliterated this. The rumours were completely untrue and it now seems that Lenigas himself forwarded the email below to a number of online stock rampers. Unsurprisingly this email is now doing the rounds.

Quindell (QPP) is spinning for its life. I examine how it spins what is bad news. The only 2 guys it can find as new NEDS are proven failures. The trading statement is dire. Look at the miss on cash generation in Q4. And look at the real net cash position. This is woeful. The statement on revenues and earnings is telegraphing that PWC is going to be red ink City and the fact that there is no PWC until the end of Febuary shows how bad things are.
