Argo Blockchain spouts green shite but still will not answer fundamental questions so here is another!

Another day and another announcement from Argo Blockchain (ARB) the company that is spending $17.5 million buying some Texas scrub land worth $168,000. It is more green hype which might impress some of the ESG loving millennial fund managers who Chris Bailey is keen on, but cash guzzling Argo refuses to address the herds of elephants in the room.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: the time of year when my hatred of Amazon mounts

I explain why I am cursing Amazon almost daily. I look at redemptions and fund managers a problem lurking under the surface but also how do private investors react to stocks going to zero or doing an IQE (IQE). I look at worrying data from China and then at Utilitywire (UTW) - another Neil Woodford car crash - and at Interserve (IRV). Ouzo for Nigel Somerville soon I sense.

Tom Winnifith Bearcast - Will the Lombard crew be prosecuted for fraud & I'd rather not write in ignorance like Cynical Bear

It is a day off from training, after yesterday's ten mile walk. My 75 year old coach, Brian Basham, says I must rest my muscles. I restart again tomorrow but how about you donate a tenner to a great cause and sponsor me HERE? Meanwhile i discuss Cynical Bear's latest piece written in ignorance on Big Sofa (BST). He might be right and I may be wrong. So far he has called it right. But what we do know is that he is guessing and writing in ignorance, I'd rather not do that. Then I look at fund managers making pathetic excuses for their own failure over Persimmon (PSN). Finally after today's shocking Lombard (LRM) expose HERE I ask will the authorities finally hold individuals to account to show they really want to stamp out fraud.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: I hope Persimmon's Mr Fairburn tells the fat cat fund managers where to stick it & keeps his £110m

The scandal over fat cat bonuses at Persimmon (PSN) is something that we were the first to expose back in September of last year way before the national press got onto the case. The real villains are the Government but also the overpaid and negligent City fund managers who agreed to this scheme. They are now trying to shift the blame onto the bosses, notably CEO Jeff Fairburn, but this is about blame shifting not what is in the best interests of shareholders. I then look at wider market wobbles mentioning, en passant, IQE (IQE), SnapChat and other examples of lunacy.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast - feeling sympathy with alleged City criminals and more on UKOG

It looks as if the double share tip video will be out on Tuesday - www speeds in Greece are just too slow to upload it. In today's bearcast I start with the leaking of failed bids, ref Elegant Hotels(EHG). Who benefits and why do it? Then I look at the fund managers accused of colluding to drive down IPO prices. I really do have some sympathy with them and explain why. Then it is onto UK Oil & Gas (UKOG) and Alba (ALBA). Finally I take apart today's ludicrous claims about growing poverty in Britain. They are pure bollocks.

Winner of the Bulletin Board Moron of the Week contest - sponsored by the fund managers who knew so much better than the dirty plebs on Telit

It seems like everyone is reading obscure Itallian newspapers, because the Telit story is on everyone's lips. Even BBC Radio 4's Today show mentioned it this morning. Of course none of the mainstream media would ever admit to reading ShareProphets. Funny that.. we do track IP you know!

New Bulletin Board Moron of the Week contest - sponsored by the fund managers who knew so much better than the dirty plebs on Telit

Just three months ago some of Britain's top fund managers ploughed more than 50 million dollars into a placing organised by AIM dog Telit Communications despite numerous warnings from ourselves and others. But they knew better and anyhow it was other people's money. The shares have collapsed today to less than half the placing price after the most awful set of interims. But the fund managers will still earn Inter City salaries + ( more than 125) and fat bonuses so who cares? Are there any folks in the share world dumber than those fund managers? Er....

Tom Winnifrith: I think this is my best bearcast for months: Redcentric, the FCA, arrogant dickhead fund managers, Independent Resources & Mkango

I hope this does not sound conceited but I think this is possibly my best bearcast for some time. I really enjoyed this from start to finish. Maybe I shall not go into retirement just yet, after all. Or maybe I still will. Anyhow, on the agenda: Redcentric (RCN), MX Capital (MXCP), the FCA, Mkango Resources (MKA), Independent Resources (IRG), arrogant dickhead fund managers and the UK Investor Show.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Insider Dealer fund manager Mark Lyttleton - the whole thing is a joke

City slicker Mark Lyttleton of BlackRock is behind bars this Christmas. But not for long enough. How he sinned tells us how bent the whole City is and the joke sentence shows that white collar crime really does pay. This podcast is recorded in Shipston with my father listening. As a stern lefty he would imprison all fund managers not just the crooked ones,

Fastjet - Private investors refuse to take part in overpriced offer, trading likely remains grim

Fastjet has this afternoon announced the result of its general meeting and capital raising. Not surprisingly, given the support of the institutions involved, all resolutions were passed.

Fastjet – Fund managers request to pay more because they don’t want to own too many shares

The remarkable placing document which has finally been released says more about Fastjet’s (FJET) hapless shareholders than it does about the company itself.

Gulf Keystone Morons: what was that you were saying about institutional backing - M&G dumps its shares

The Morons who have ignored my advice to sell Gulf Keystone (GKP) all the way down from 180p to 6.6p today have occassionally argued that I cannot be right because fund managers are long and strong and they know more than a pizza delivery boy/alcoholic etc etc etc. Today M&G has sold its 5% stake and now owns no shares at all.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast 29 November - my surprising Gold & Bears key takeaways

If you missed Gold & Bears you missed a fun day out. I will think more about it and what comes next over the next few days. What I am certinly going to ensure is that UkInvestorShow on April 30 is a blow out event. After that we will see what happens next but book your seats now HERE. The key themes for me ae that I am increasngly drawn to mining stocks ( and I name 2), the new attitude to bears and takeaways from my tech session and other key shorts. And why fund managers are far from certain to beat you and I in the markets. Thank you for all the kind emails and tweets from those who attended.

Two companies beginning with ‘R’: Royal & Sun Alliance and Rolls Royce

Well what a week and if you are a Rolls Royce (RR/) shareholder what an end to the week…but more on the perils of owning one of the favoured holdings of institutional professional fund managers in a minute.

View Investing as A Mental and Emotional Challenge

You could describe what has happened to the market as a massacre over the past two days. It’s even making ‘conventional’ news now, and new ‘experts’ are being found to pass comment on it. The truth is... most of these experts don’t have a clue really. Interestingly today the Telegraph is doing a review of highly paid fund managers who at the beginning of the year were predicting the FTSE would be at 8,000 by the year end...

Life in a private company and a PLC – the Year end merry go round

The Real Man year-end is just five weeks away. We are a private company and so it makes not a blind bit of difference to us. Sure we have to fill in a few forms which we will do. But does it impact on our behaviour? Not in the slightest. How different life is at a PLC where what is termed "window dressing" takes place. What odd things it makes folks do.
