Tom Winnifrith Bearcast - I find this AIM Sewer crony capitalist greed too much to bear

I return to the subject of Sosandar (SOS) – goaded by PL – then to Braveheart Investment (BRH). I discuss companies late filing accounts using the covid excuse – is it not time this ruse was stopped. Then I end with some words on the Manolete (MANO) dog.

The last company I will ever float to delist – Jim Mellon does the right thing at Agronomics, is there an arb for a safe 20% in months?

It was back in 2011 that I helped float Port Erin (PEBI) on Aim and indeed I was a director until 2012 when my stint as a crony capitalist ended in tears and failure. Today that company, now known as Agronomics (ANIC) is to delist with my fellow co-founder, Jim Mellon backing a take private move. Jim is doing the right thing. But is there a trading arb now opening up?

Has ShareSoc supremo Cliff Weight gone full crony capitalist – ref Sirius Minerals

Last night, as we reported at the time HERE, shareholders in Sirius Minerals (SXX) gave an almighty feck you to folks like the ShareSoc suits and pompous Crispin Odey and backed the 5.5p per share bid from Anglo American. Before the meeting ShareSoc’s Cliff Weight was on twitter and going full on crony capitalist.

Iconic Labs – finally corrects its maths….it’s only taken a week! Still a screaming sell.

Further to my article last weekend which pointed out that someone at former David Sefton outfit Iconic Labs (ICON) couldn’t add up with reference to its RNS of 4.08pm on Friday 7 February (no-one-is-watching o’clock) announcing a capital reorganisation, a week later the company finally got around to correcting it…….at no-one-is-watching o’clock (4.09pm) yesterday. Perhaps yesterday’s crony capitalist lunch at shareholders’ expense was alcohol-free.

ValiRx – petty cash placing to keep the lights on. How many Brokers does this £0.9m company need?

When I first commented on AIM-listed cancer drug developer ValiRx (VAL) back in 2016 the shares had just seen a pump’n’dump which pushed the stock up to 21p before a placing at just 12p. Now the stock is just 0.1p and on a market cap of £0.9m (source: ADVFN): never mind the 90% club, this is a fully paid up member of the 99% club. And now we have a placing for just £200,000 gross…..and Broker number three joins the fray, although as Tom Winnifrith points out the RNS will have to be reissued. How on earth can you justify paying three broker retainers for a company worth less than a million pounds?

Explosive UK Investor Show Video: Tom Winnifrith chapter & verse on why AIM bad boy MySquar is a 100% FRAUD

I start at the beginning which is the early career of Eric Schaer, the fraudster in chief, and end at the end which will be insolvency and, I hope, jail time for Eric and the gang. This is chapter and verse on why MySquar (MYSQ) is a 100% fraud and why the employees of Nomad SP Angel are gutless, morally bankrupt, crony capitalists for continuing to act for it. This is no holds barred material. Enjoy.

TrakM8 talks shite - evil PR maestro Reg Hoare at it again

I wonder if my pal Paul Scott, the UK's top share blogger, has headed up to the post industrial grim urban wastlelands of Coventry for the AGM and investor open day of TrakM8 (TRAK). As someone who grew up near there I would not wish such a fate on anyone let alone a sensitive soul like Paul. Anyhow if a day in the place that gave us "Living in a ghost town" is not bad enough he will also have to digest a trading statement crafted by evil PR genius and crony capitalist Reg Hoare which ...leave a lot to be desired in term transparency. I would expect nothing less.

TrakM8– still burning cash & still promising jam tomorrow, this is just a bad business

My contention, questioned by certain other well known share bloggers, is that TrakM8 (TRAK) is what Warren Buffett would define as a "bad company." That is not saying that it is a fraud. It is not, although it has told untruth's in RNS's and raised cash to buy some strange old businesses. It is bad because it just does not generate free cashflow. Paul Scott, PR crony capitalist Reg Hoare or the paid corporate shrills can bang on abourt earnings per share till the cows come home but earnings are a matter of opinion, cash is a matter of fact. Trakm8 yesterday published its, piss poor, results for the year ended 31 March 2017.

Warning: This podcast contains a lot of bad language and images of a sexual nature. As far as I understand it, Sweden is known for the fact that 95% of its population enjoy thrashing the naked buttocks of other folk's partners at the weekend.

I reflect on this madness and the insanity of Janet Yellen of the Federal Reserve and then on the gold price. I look at a few gold stocks racing ahead wrongly ( Condor (CNR), Goldplat (GDP) and Patagonia Gold (PGD)) and at others I might buy. I comment on the insane dead cat bounce at Motive TV (MTV) and on the odd behaviour of crony capitalist PR man Reg Hoare of TrakM8 (TRAK) and explain why its shares are still a sell. Then it is onto the deadlines for Solo Oil (SOLO) and LGO Energy (LGO) going under as Neil Ritson tries his hand at Leni-Maths. And I also have a trivial pursuit question for you all.

With controversy and speculation surrounding a number of AIM stocks recently I felt compelled to write a little more about a small cap aim company that has been slammed by the naysayers based on pure ignorance and fool hardiness.

I refer mainly to cash – always an issue with companies run by crony capitalist Angus Forrest, a man who was told by the Old Bill that he was silly for trying to have me arrested a few weeks ago (see HERE).

Tom Winnifrith Very Good Mood Bearcast - 13 March

I start the podcast today with a little joke for Gareth at Sirius Minerals before dealing with Afren, Gulf Keystone, Mosman, Kea, Touchstone Gold, Cloudbuy, Powerhouse Energy and Gate Ventures. Steve Berry, you crony capitalist, I have a little song for you.

Crony Capitalist Angus Forrest of Tern Reports Tom Winnifrith to Police …no action taken

I have just taken a call from Lavender Hill Police station because crony capitalist Angus Forrest of POS Company Tern (TERN) has reported me for harassment. I had a great chat with a very nice police officer who said that the case was no closed and that Mr Forrest would be told “there is no case”.

1Spatial – Disgraced Chairman Steve Berry fired and more Good news.

1Spatial (SPA) announced last week that its chairman Steve Berry was to leave with immediate effect. Good.  I have exposed this utter  rotter as being up to no good at all at another company on AIM – Touchstone Gold (see HERE).

Tern – FY 2014 Results, where to start? Ah yes, who is making the money?

Yesterday, Tues 10 Feb 2015, Tern (TERN) published its annual results for calendar 2014. I am spoilt for choice as to where to start. So let’s start with how investors have been rooked over the year.

Tern - Yet more clarifications of the clarification of 7 Jan 2015 needed

Tern (TERN) has today issued an omnishambles of a misleading results statement. I shall turn to that later. But before then let’s look at yesterday’s omnishambles RNS from crony capitalist Angus Forrest. A clarification of a clarification of a clarification is still needed.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Petropavlovsk, Peter Hambro, Indaba - you make me sick

City grandee Sir Peter Hambro is quoted in today's Daily Mail, bleating about how prvate investors in Petropavlovsk (POG) hate him and might allow his POS company to go into administration. Good. I hope they do. I view Mr Hambro and his company with contempt. He is a rich man and shareholders have lost up to 98% of their cash.  But Eton educated Hambro just does not get this becuase he thinks he is better than we peasants. I also look at the crony capitalist knees up starting at Indaba. Jeepers these folk all make me so angry for how they abuse ordinary private investors.

1Spatial gets rid of Steve Berry, another scalp for The Sheriff and our resident poet writes

1Spatial (SPA) a well-run firm on the AIM casino has today announced the immediate departure of its chairman, crony capitalist Steve Berry. This follows a series of revelations such as THIS about his activities elsewhere at POS and Touchstone Gold (TGL). While The Sheriff of AIM celebrates another scalp, our resident in house poet, EJ has dashed off an offering: In Memoriam Steve Berry.

Breaking – Mosman is FUCKED – MEO rejects takeover bid

Oh dear, Oh dear, it seems as if the board as ASX listed MEO has been listening to my advice HERE and HERE as it has just now advised its shareholders to reject the all share bid from AIM casino listed Aussie based POS Mosman Oil & Gas (MSMN). The technical term for where that leaves Mosman is “fucked”.

Tom Winnifrith BearCast - Grand Group Investments - another China POS IPO - Red Flag Special

Grand Group Investments plans to IPO on AIM tomorrow thanks to fat crony capitalist Ray Zimmerman of ZAI Corporate Finance. The usual advisers to China Norfolks are on board: dirtbag lawyers Pinsent Masons and PR poshboy Henry Harrison Topham, I say old chap didn't your grandfather bugger mine behind the bike sheds at Eton? In this podcast I look at the other Red Flags

Quindell: a Letter to Richard Rose

Richard Rose is the chairman designate of Quindell (QPP) In that vein I sent him an email yesterday. He has not replied. It reads: 

Tern – FCA Responds: Are You Sweating Yet Angus Forrest, And Your Crony Capitalist Cabal?

On Tuesday I published an open letter to the FCA and to AIM Regulation lambasting them for their uselessness over the fiasco which took place at Digital Learning Marketplace plc in 2012 which had at the time involved two of Tern’s (TERN) current board as well as one of Tern’s current Brokers, and asking them to investigate recent events at Tern plc. You can read that open letter HERE  The FCA has now responded – and the Market Abuse team is taking a look. Here is what they have to say for themselves:

Quindell Bulletin Board Moron of the Day – Tycoon Ted – but sentiment is changing as it does with all frauds

I despair. Quindell “needs to sort me out” – so says Tycoon Ted on ADVFN. Well why doesn’t it launch legal proceedings as it threatened three months ago if I did not shut up and grovel? Or does Ted think it should just have me killed. What do you think Ted? Ted posts:

Our Readers Reckon Rob Terry’s Quindell margin call was 69p (and they are right) so what did Rob do?

Quindell (QPP) has yet to fess up as to what price Rob Terry, Larry Moorse and Steve Scott face margin calls on their Equities First Holdings LLC “loans”. But having reflected upon the matter I agree with our readers who overwhelmingly reckon it is 69p on which basis Mr 2+2 has already faced an unwelcome phone call from the hoods in Indianapolis.

Reader Poll – what Price is Rob Terry’s Quindell Margin call

Crony capitalist Nomad Cenkos won’t tell us. Mr 2+2 can = 5, the fraudster Rob Terry will not tell us but we NEED to know at what price does Rob Terry face margin calls from Equity First Holdings LLC and so presumably sell more shares to EF so creating a death spiral? Well maybe our readers have an idea. There have been various suggestions put forward. Vote now on what you think the margin call price is – deadline midnight:

Tom Winnifrith's BearCast 3rd November - the Sefton lessons for Sefton, Quindell and others edition

Shares in Sefton Resources (SER) are among the big fallers today- nowat 0.11p vs 2.5p when i started attacking this fraud more than two years ago.  There are some lessons from that "campaign" for shareholders in the fraud that is Quindell. But there are wider lessons brought home by today's latest catastrophic news, viz the reality of real asset backing and the failure of auditors. I also cover Quenron and its share price and the  turn my fire on Touchstone Gold - a crony capitalist pointless POS vehicle, before discussing Globo and why its shares are so grossly overvalued -a point made in more genteel terms by Steve Moore earlier today HERE

Daniel Stewart shares still suspended – shock picture from its IPO Department Revealed: Another Caption Contest

Shares in Crony capitalist Nomad and broker Daniel Stewart (DAN) remain suspended on the AIM casino as the financially challenged enterprise has still failed to get its accounts signed off and published. While we wait we have managed to obtain an exclusive image of its IPO Department. This is the part of the firm that brought you winners like Quenron (QPP), Naibu (NBU) and China Chaintek (CTEK), made £1 million raising cash for Globo (GBO) but could not quite manage to float China fraud Fraspens in August. So what will be its next offering?  I ask you by midnight tonight to post a suitable caption below.

Naibu – a Damning Indictment of the failure of regulation on the AIM Casino

Shares in China fraud Naibu (NBU) bounced to 27p at the tail of the week. That is a dead cat bounce. This is a fraud and the shares are worth 0p. But the episode shows just why regulation on the AIM Casino is such a total joke.

Naibu FRAUD watch Day 1: now on a PE of 0.46 and 132% upside in shares if Daniel Stewart believes its own SHIT – why wont it say buy?

Shares in Naibu (NBU) have slumped another 10% today to just 21.5p. The company is an out and out fraud and it is only a matter of time before the shares are suspended. If it had a smidgeon of integrity, its Nomad and Broker Daniel Stewart (which likes acting for China frauds on the AIM Casino and also listed Quenron) would resign. But it seems that the greedy ethics free crony capitalist bastards at Daniel Stewart would rather keep banking fat monthly retainers.

The answer to failure of regulation & the FCA is NOT more regulation and more cash for the FCA

Over the weekend I described another glaring failure by the FCA/FSA which has cost 325 investors £25 million. I am told by a, normally sensible, fellow in the comments section that the answer is to give the FCA more money and more resource. How 100% wrong can you be?

Brian Toye of Toye & Co: Crony Capitalist you have Massive Questions to answer you POS

Brian Toye runs a listed company Toye & Co (TOYE) and has now made a 35p a share offer to buy out his fellow stockholders. The offer is disgracefully low – a 30% discount to the share price and a 70% discount to the last NAV. The manner of the offer also begs a stack of questions as to whether rules have been followed. The NEDs said No. But it will go through unless regulators intervene. This is disgraceful crony capitalism and POS Brian Toye has serious questions to answer.
