Best of the Best – interims, profit warning AGAIN!

Online prize competitions company Best of the Best (BOTB) has announced results for its half-year ended 31st October 2021 including “in line with market expectations as updated in August 2021”. However, I previously noted that “updated” was actually a massive profit warning, concluding with the shares around the mid 600p’s I want to see some evidence of the earnings “uptick” potential before reconsidering from the watchlist. The shares last closed at 606p but are currently below 450p, so what’s going on with the apparently “in line” results?…

After the July lack of profits warning, you might have thought that interims today from Parsley Box (MEAL) could not make things any worse. You would be wrong.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast - another high yielding blue chip Neil Woodford is having to dump & another shite note from FinnCrap

In today's podcast, my last Monday bearcast from the civilised south as opposed to the Grim North,  I start with a look at another blue chip high yield stock Neil Woodford is being forced to sell as a result of the flood of redemptions. Then I have a revelation of shame about Daniel Stewart (DAN) and executive largesse. Then I look at the Yourgene (YGEN) trading statement and the lamentable research note it produced from FinnCrap (FCAP) which I reproduce in full below. Really: it is time to sack FinnCap and get a proper broker on board Finally a look at Adept4 (AD4) and an appeal to you all to join the roll call of heros HERE

Shore Cap takeover of Stockdale shows what a joke valuation Finncap enjoys

With every other Nomad/broker in town having issued a profits warning in the past few months it is only a matter of time before FinnCrap (FCAP) has to 'fess up to. But quite amazingly the shares still trade at their IPO price of 28p valuing FinnCrap at £47 million which today’s ShoreCap (SGR) purchase of rival Stockdale shows to be a joke.

More Good News for this Medical Pioneer Which Makes War on Three of our Most Common Cancers

We are now told that it won’t meet the 31 January (new) deadline but will happen on or before 20 February after the Chinese New Year. Whatever… the statement itself throws up an enormous red flag, how on earth Nomad FinnCrap (FCAP) signed off on this crap defies belief…it is almost as if it is only in it for the retainers and does not care about doing its job properly.

Breaking: the Other nail in the London Oil & Gas coffin that will bring down AIM listed Independent Oil & Gas

Oh dear, oh dear. This really is proof that Independent Oil & Gas (IOG) is - whatever its scumbag Nomad FinnCrap (FCAP) claims -complete toast. You will remember that Independent owes more than £30 million to unquoted London Oil & Gas. That money has to start being repaid within a few months and Independent will go bust unless London provides more funds. But London has borrowed money from LCF a related party firm subject to a full blown FCA raid as it is a ponzi fraud as we showed here yesterday. That cash is repayable on demand. Now read on....

Anglo African Oil & Gas – who is the villain here: Tom Winnifrith, Nomad FinnCrap or CEO David Sefton?

Yesterday I revealed that Anglo African Oil & Gas (AAOG) was undertaking a massively discounted placing at 10p to raise £4 million which seems to have stirred up a real hornets nest among the Bulletin Board Morons. I have been reported to the FCA numerous times ( again) and the charge is that I am the villain. But am I? I suggest not but put up two other candidates for that eipthet and that I am the hero of this tale.

VINDICATION: Telit – FCA enquiry widened, implication is of wholesale securities fraud re 2017 placing

The fraud that is Telit (TCM) continues to unravel. We already knew that ex FD and CEO Yosi fait was being investigated for selling all his shares in early July 2017 while he was aware of damaging price sensitive information ( a profits warning) – that would be insider dealing. We know that founder, former CEO and the man who is still running Telit via puppet directors, Uzi Katz, is being investigated for not admitting that he was a fraudster and fugitive from justice.  Now it gets bigger.

Is the Finncrap IPO a sign that AIM is doomed

Today brings news that FinnCap, Finncrap to its friends, the biggest AIM Nomad and broker is to buy Cavendish Corporate Finance, the corporate advisory firm run by pompous Tory Lord Leigh, who claims to speak for ordinary shareholders but is actually a City fat cat like the rest of them, and that the combined business will itself list on the casino in December. Is this a sign that AIM is headed into irreversible decline?

Big Sofa – dismal results and placing at just 3p. Roll call of shame

Tom Winnifrith writes: Firstly an apology from us. Big Sofa (BST) has been a very poor tip - as big investors in the IPO we share your pain and - justifiable - anger.  We apologise for believing numerous things said by CEO Simon Liddington. I have just emailed him and called him, to his face rather than behind his back, a “corporate wanker” for reasons I shall explain below. He should resign at once allowing newly appointed CCO Kirsty Fuller to take charge. Liddington is not fit for purpose and I am sorely tempted to go to the forthcoming EGM and tell him that, once again, to his face and demand he goes.

Imaginatik – “financial performance has improved”, but sufficiently?

FinnCrap - a disgrace to the City

Some of you will be aware of my whining about market makers and house broker games played out on the trading floor of AIM. I am sure some of you think these are merely conspiracy theories of a blogger and attempted to explain negative share price movements on a particular day. I'm not going to rehash my market maker theory again, instead, lets discuss a the role of a house broker, I guess these creatures are right at the top of the tree, along with bankers, as a breed of creatures we hate because we feel they cannot be trusted, and yet we are effectively held to ransomed because of the duty they perform.

Premaitha – results, placing and the sheer uselessness of broker Finncap - wankers

Tom Winnifrith writes and has also discussed this in bearcast HERE: We ordinary shareholders in Premaitha (NIPT) have suffered for many years and shown enormous loyalty. News released well after the market close of a £2.5 million placing at 10p might thus seem like a kick in the teeth by a management treating us with contempt. I am afraid the story is far worse.

Peter Young was the co founder of Independent Oil & Gas (IOG) and until March of this year sat on its board.
