Oil and Gas– May the #COP26 farce be with you

I have been following the COP26 two-week jamboree of the so called “great and the good” flying into Glasgow on private jets over the last two weeks. I have noted how some 18-year-old school kid from Scandinavia has been teaching our bonkers Prime Minister Carrie Boris Johnston to say Blah blah blah. It has been irritating and an insult to all thinking people. However, the implications to us investors are wide and many. A few views and opinions as the wafflefest comes to a close.

Oil Price – Coming along nicely – but it’s only the start: FYB with oil shares!

The oil price is panning out largely as I expected when I last drafted on this matter back in March. We are now at $84 as I type, compared to the $67 when I last commented. I saw a high probability of $100 by year end, and so far, I see little to change my mind. Oil and Gas equity prices lag the commodity prices, and oil lags gas. I see real opportunity here, but not without some downside risk.

EXPLOSIVE: Shame on Allenby Capital & Optiva – disgraceful float of Ben’s Creek, another US coal dog from colourful Adam Wilson

If this rings any bells it should. Ben’s Creek Group PLC was only incorporated on 11 August 2021 with the “colourful” financier Adam Wilson of Daniel Stewart and Atlantic Carbon ( another US coal dog) infamy the driving force. Now it plans to raise £7 million valuing the shite within this company at £28 million. There is so much that I doubt Optiva and Allenby are telling mugs who are ponying up ahead of an AIM sewer listing in two weeks time.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast - Supply@ME Capital really is keeping the idiots in suspense and me too...

I start with ITM Power (ITM) where I just don’t understand pipeline valuation and definitions and the valuation is absurd. But then green is where the zeitgeist is. Not coal which brings me onto the lies and reality at Plutus Powergen (PPG). I look at the fraud Supply@ME Capital (SYME) and Alien Metals (UFO) and the more general issue of related party deals after today’s expose on this website.

What is Plutus Powergen not telling you about its planned RTO into US coal? What's the biggest lie today?

Having not completed an RTO within six months of becoming a shell, shares in Plutus Powergen (PPG) were suspended from the AIM sewer this morning but fear not: Charles Tatnall and James Longley have a US coal RTO “oven ready” as Lyin’ Boris Johnson might say. Natch it is what is not in the release that should horrify you although that contains at least one absolutely monstrous lie.

Drax Group– Uninvestable to me – but very important

I have commented earlier today on NextEnergy Renewables (NREN). There is no question the UK grid has been under real stress this winter when the wind does not blow and the sun has set. The answer can only be gas fired stations in my view. Drax Group (DRX) is focused on Biomass power generation, but potential influence on gas fired generation worries me.

NextEnergy Renewables Ltd – Immoral “woke” deployment of capital

GCM Resources – the end or the beginning of the end or perhaps neither

One of the World's Top Funds Warns About Investing in Carbon Fuels. But Should We Take Notice?

Hello, Share Pickers. As a shareholder in Black Rock’s Greater European Fund (BRGE), I take account of what the company’s supremo has to say about the future. And the interestingly-named Larry Fink says climate change worries will cause a "fundamental re-shaping of finance”. And that it’ll come a lot sooner than expected.

The Curse of Daniel Stewart strikes again – management fallout at Atlantic Carbon

Thanks largely to the work on this website, the ludicrous proposal to reverse drowning in debt POS Atlantic Carbon into worthless Daniel Stewart Securities ahead of a Standard List came a cropper in early April as noted HERE. But the curse of doing business with Daniel Stewart and its toxic boss Peter Shea is now becoming clear for all to see.

Major blow to Edenville Energy's coal-to-power plans

All that Edenville Energy (EDL) seems to have managed to achieve over the years is to burn through cash at a rate of knots whilst failing to deliver anything for shareholders other than a steady and prolonged decrease in the share price. I can remember even back in 2010/11 when this company was being promoted as having huge potential, along with all the other rubbish that you tend to hear spouted about these small AIM resource outfits across the bulletin boards...

Oracle Power is suddenly very popular - so when is the next placing?

Oracle Power (ORCP) seems to have become popular all of a sudden and has seen its share price rise by around 80% in the past week, but as usual some on the bulletin boards seem to be claiming that it should actually be worth many multiples of its current valuation.

Why I still wouldn't invest in GCM shares even after its deal with PowerChina

Investors in GCM Resources (GCM) seem to be shocked that recent news hasn’t caused the share price to rise much higher, and barring a very brief spike immediately after news of a deal landed, it has settled back to around the level that it was trading at before the RNS dropped. The news that has got everyone invested in this Bangladeshi coal miner so excited is a joint venture agreement with a huge government owned entity called PowerChina, which is involved in coal fired power plants and is a name that some will be familiar with as it also has similar deals in place with other small mining companies in various parts of Africa as well...

Billiton gets religion...with a little help from its activist hedge fund 'friend'

It was around a year ago that I wrote an article about one of my then tips of the year BHP Billiton (BLT) observing that the world's largest mining company had just made billions of dollars of losses...but correctly the share price was going up. Billiton was a nice solid pick for 2016 but so far this year the share has been more volatile than remunerative.

Hargreaves Services (HSP) crosses the radar today on the back of a trading update ahead of full-year results which are set to be released in August.

New chance for Altona Energy

Shares in Australian coal play Altona Energy (ANR) have bounced almost 50% to 0.43p since we highlighted director Nicki Lyth’s recent flight to China to save the company’s 7.8 billion -tonne Arckaringa coal project in South Australia. Now sporting an AIM value of £2.8 million, the company, whose shares traded above 8p five years ago, awaits the first tranche of A$6 million (£2.75 million) due in early December as part of the A$33 million which its Chinese joint venture partners, Sino-Aus Energy Group and Wintask Group, have been persuaded to put into Arckaringa.

Atlantic Coal shares to double says Roger Bade, world’s No 1 mining analyst

We always thought that AIM listed Atlantic Coal (AC) was a 100% dog but the world’s number one mining analyst Roger Bade of Whitman Howard thinks otherwise and has initiated his coverage with a buy note. Whatever. In the interests of balance, the great man writes: 

Can Sable Mining maintain its share price surge?

Sable Mining Africa (SBLM), the AIM-quoted company founded by veteran Zambian-born cricketer and entrepreneur Phil Edmonds, has for long suffered in investors’ appraisal because of its heavy involvement with iron ore, which now trades in the $50 a tonne region, a third of boom-time peaks. But its shares enjoyed a spike the other day on a memorandum of understanding (MOU) signed with CITIC Group, the People’s Republic of China’s overseas investment corporation, to establish a 600-megawatt central African power station at the company’s Lubu coal project in Zimbabwe.

Is Atlantic Coal poised for a speculative recovery?

US-focused open-cast anthracite coal producer Atlantic Coal (ATC) is ‘actively looking for further high-quality and economically viable anthracite properties’ after turning a $272,000 (£175,000) loss into $3.7 million (£2.4 million) pre-tax profits in the six months to June. That is the word from chairman Adam Wilson, former head of entrepreneurial City stockbroker Hichens Harrison, following a near-40% increase in volume sales from the AIM-quoted company’s Stockton mine in Pennsylvania to 106,000 tons (not metric) in the first half year.

Oracle Coalfields – rally should continue based on the back of pricing deal

Shares in long-unfavoured Oracle Coalfields (ORCP) have been winning some new friends in the wake of acceptance by government of Pakistan’s Sindh province of the company’s pricing petition for its 1.4 billion tonne brown coal (lignite) project in the province’s Thar desert. Shahrukh Khan, entrepreneurial Chief executive officer of AIM-quoted Oracle, argues this acceptance, which will still needs federal ratification if the Sindh government approves, amounts to a ‘green light’ for the projected first phase of the project, which envisages producing four million tonnes a year to feed a 600-megawatt power station for the electricity-hungry region, at an initial price for the lignite of $76.48c (£49) a tonne, subject to later annual review.

Kibo Mining – operational progress keeps on coming!

It’s great to see a mining company on AIM doing exactly what it said it would do, especially in the current climate. This morning, Kibo Mining (KIBO) delivered its latest important milestone, on schedule. The company has released the findings of Phase 2 Stage 1 of its development plan for the Mbeya Coal to Power Project in Tanzania. Based on exploiting the 109.39mt inferred and indicated resource at the Rukwa coal deposit, this represents another significant step forward for Kibo. It’s now something of a surprise to see the company’s share price trading at 4.75p. Up only 0.63p on the day, it seems likely that Kibo’s shares are held back by the general headwinds blowing a gale against the resource sector. Unperturbed, the company continues to push forward.

New World cuts losses

Czech coal miner New World Resources (NWR) has slashed its annual deficit from E914 million (£672 million) to E 21 million thanks to an advantageous capital restructuring and is ‘identifying new business opportunities’ while coal prices remain weak.  Formerly part of the Czech state-owned coal industry, the company, which is listed in London, Prague and Warsaw and operates through its Czech mining subsidiary OKD, increased output 2 % in 2014 to 8.6 million tonnes, with hard coking coal for the steel industry 3% ahead to 8.3 million tonnes and thermal coal for power generation down 30% to 3.5 million tonnes.

Oracle gets its licence back

Shares in bombed-out Oracle Coalfields (ORCP) have bounced on confirmation that the company has had its mining lease over a lignite (brown coal) deposit in south-east Pakistan’s Thar coalfield potentially holding more than a billion tonnes reinstated by the government of Sindh Province. Entrepreneurial chief executive Shahrukh Khan says AIM-quoted Oracle, whose shares fell from a 10p float price in 2011 to a recent low of 0.37p before rallying to 0.9p, is now talking to major potential Pakistani and Chinese partners about putting together a $1.3 billion (£840 million) project funding package.

Kibo, which had last year signed a memorandum of understanding with Korea’s state-owned East West Power group about possible participation in Rukwa, is now concentrating instead on a pre-feasibility study, due this month from energy-to-infrastructure specialist Aurecon, of its plan to build a 300 to 350 megawatt power station there.

How bearish can we be on mining stocks – the world’s No 1 analyst Roger Bade warns things will get worse

The world’s No 1 mining analyst Roger Bade of Whitman Howard has produced his quarterly review and while there are a few new buy ideas, such as Amara (AMA), on the whole his tone is as bearish as ever. Anyone who says how some mining juniors should be “viewed with contempt” is a top man. Although Mr Bade’s less than complimentary words about the quite excellent Women in Mining organisation run by mining guru Amanda Van Dyke (pictured left since she is a tad more photogenic than Mr Bade) have “been noted”.  Naughty. The review makes for sobering reading for anyone still investing in this sector. Mr Bade writes:

Speculation has suggested potential partners could include German engineering and electronics giant Siemens or Swiss-based chemicals group Ineos, active at the Grangemouth oil refinery in the Firth of Forth, but AIM-quoted Cluff Natural remains tight-lipped.

Placement Watch - Edenville Energy further proves its lack of fundamental value

On January 17th, Edenville Energy (EDL) caused outrage among its shareholders when it placed £1.4million at 0.07p. This was a greater than 50% discount and illustrates exactly the problem, which faces cash strapped junior would-be miners. Without sufficient backing, the “assets” these companies own are, to all intents and purpose, worthless. Today, Edenville has hardly helped any attempts at making a value case for this stock, as it placed again. This time it raised £250,000 at 0.06p. Further dilution, for such a small amount and at this awful price further calls into question Edenville’s viability. Oh, but hang on moment, I heard its shareholders cry, what about the Expression of Interest the company signed only nine days ago? Well...
