Two matters of great interest to PrimaryBid followers

I am a fan of PrimaryBid. It allows ordinary punters like you and I to take part in placings hitherto reserved for City insiders. So everyone should sign up HERE. But there are two pieces of news today.

Bould short squeeze rumours are a load of rubbish designed to pump the share price!

There’s nothing like talk of a short squeeze to get private investors predicting all sorts of crazy figures and scenarios – when the reality is that it is normally nothing more than just a rumour designed to pump the share price, and even if true it would be more likely to result in suspension of trading for a disorderly market, than a huge rise in the share price.

Tom Winnifrith Bonus Bearcast: Concepta EVERYTHING that is wrong with AIM Casino Placings on display

We own shed loans of shares in Concepta (CPT) and they are, in my view, still cheap. But today's placing fills me with utter disgust and makes me so angry as I explain in full. The image below is from the Boots website.

A ban on shorting AIM companies would lead to a lot of the bad ones quickly going bust! (TW - Gary Newman talking bollocks)

There has been a lot of talk on social media recently about a petition to ban the short selling of AIM listed stocks - although it currently only has a little over 3,200 signatures, including a few CEOs, and is well short of the 10,000 needed to even get the government to respond – 100,000 are needed for a Parliamentary debate...

Despite a big drop in share price Greatland Gold still looks expensive

Investors who believed all the hype surrounding Greatland Gold (GGP) received a nasty shock this week when the share price collapsed, but for many of us who have been around the market for a while it didn’t really come as much of a surprise.

Ferrum Crescent - still burning through cash and achieving little of note!

With any AIM listed natural resources company it is always interesting to look at where the company is at this point in time when compared to the accumulated losses of the business since it started.

I don't view Blenheim Natural Resources as an investment, but can see a potential trade

Regular readers here will know that I am not exactly a fan of Blenheim Natural Resources (BNR), nor have I ever been despite plenty of interest from private investors in this company.

Versarien - another Primary Bid after hours Friday opportunity - sign up now, Sunday 5 PM deadline

This is becoming a regular Friday feature - an after hours offer from Primary Bid for increasingly credible placings. The last one was Ascent at 1.85p - its shares, 3 weeks later, are 2.375p which is great news for our readers who took part. Next up is Versarien (VRS) which is raising £1 million at 15p.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: 2 massive rule changes AIM MUST make in the wake of the Cloudtag scandal & the issue of blame

I know some folks want to blame others if they have lost money on the Cloudtag (CTAG) fraud. Well it is fair to hold some to account and make adverse comments and some folks should be doing a perp walk. But ultimately we are all accountable for our own trades whether winners or losers. Moving on this debacle has raised issues which call for two MASSIVE changes to the AIM Rule book: the announcement of Nomad departures and the disclosure or banning of placings based on T+ trades. PS Does anyone have an address for Cloudtag ramper David Greece. Please post in the comments section below in case I get bored and find myself in his locality.

Cloudtag - why the shares are suspended: a ghastly silence from Novum, here is the sordid detail

Why were Cloudtag (CTAG) shares suspended yesterday? I answered that in part HERE but can now add more detail. Welcome to the ghastly and murkeyand sordid world of T+10 placings.

Ascent Resources £3m fund raise shows PrimaryBid has come of age - why aren't you signed up?

You know that I am a massive supporter of Primary Bid as it gives ordinary punters the chance to take part on placings hitherto reserved either for fund managers or for bucket shops. The platform has now really come of age with news of a £3 million fund raise for Ascent Resources (AST), a stock I quite like. If you are not signed up you are MAD so do so here.

Watch where you are buying - the placing frenzy on AIM is stunning & tells you two things

I was struck by a number of conversations I enjoyed during my trip to London this week with brokers on the sell side and also bucket shop investors - they are rushed off their feet. This is confirmed by the comment below from Andrew Monk of VSA and it tells you two things very clearly. Take heed, you have been warned.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: RIP Maurice Byrne, this is dedicated to you my friend

I start with a dedication to Maurice Byrne, a friend of my family for more than 40 years, a true eccentric and a bearcast listener who sadly passed away on Thursday. I will miss him, not least as a bulwark against the raging political correctness of my family. Then I turn to Cloudtag (CTAG) and African Potash (AFPO) two companies now exposed as having lied to investors in a material way just days before placings. What does this say about investing in frauds? What does it mean for the shares and what does it mean for AIM? as the Potash story now starts to head towards the Nationals (oh yes St Brides PR brace yourselves, you can smear me but will you continue in that vein?) what happens next in both cases? Maurice would have enjoyed these battles in so many ways.

Norman Broadbent - This recruitment company still has a lot to prove

Friday saw the release of Norman Broadbent’s (NBB) final results for 2015. This small executive search business is alive and kicking despite a sequence of unprofitable years.

The murky world of bucket shop placings and warrants

If you didn’t know that the AIM market was highly regulated by the FCA, you could be forgiven for thinking that some companies exist purely to generate fees for the directors and brokers.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast 9 March: Bell, D&D, PR Fuckwits at FTI & Glenwick Rampers talk balls

I warn you that there is a lot of bad language in this podcast. I start with the balls talked by D&D on Fastjet (FJET). I have put the company on the spot as to what $20 million cash available means and I await a response. It matters big time. Then there is Andrew Bell talking balls on Horse Hill ahead of placings ahoy across the board. Then those who denied placings at Pantheon (PANR) and the posh fuckwits who spin for Scancell (SCLP). Both denied my stories. Both placed today. Folks: you know where to send your ouzo apologies. I discuss those placings and also that of Armadale (ACP) - a pisser as we own those shares. Then I discuss dire results from Glenwick (GWIK), shares in which deserve to halve and which were ramped by the same sort of mothers who ramped CEB/Andalas. The result will be the same. And also a horrid profits warnig from Tandem Group (TND) comes under the spotlight. I also mention my articles today on greedy Junior Doctors ad the BBC's woeful Trump coverage HERE

Horse Hill time for UK Oil & Gas & others to come clean on the chemical highs as locals speak out

The companies drilling Horse Hill, the so called Gatwick Gusher, have claimed that the oil that has flowed has flowed with minimal stimulation. But perhaps Steve Sanderson of UK Oil & Gas (UKOG) - a proven liar - might clarify what minimal means given evidence emerging from local residents.

Horse Hill Leni Maths in Reverse - what is the long term sustainable flow rate?

I ask you to examine two RNS statements issued by Lenigas ramp (how's the placing going) UK Oil & Gas (UKOG) concerning Horse Hill flow rates from 29 February. Then let's do some Leni-maths.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast 3 March - Off to Hospital & the Horse Hill smells

A day truncated by medical appointments sees me start the podcast with Grantchester and the Mighty Hammers - the article I mention on the latter is HERE. Then it is onto the disgrace at 3Legs (3LEG) for which there can be no excuse and where there is more to come. Then onto Horse Hill, a funny smell and the THREE placings on the way. I look at African Potash (AFPO), LGO Energy (TOAST) and the total farce at Petroceltic (PCI  - bad language alert in that section.

Now you can co invest with institutions in ShoreCap, FinnCap, Arden placings - why not?

Now this is starting to get interesting. PrimaryBid which we have backed since its launch has now got three decent AIM brokers as investors and as of now when they do placings for clients, PerimaryBid customers will be able to participate. This means getting into GOOD placings from half decent brokers acting for decent companies and this is revolutionary. I am already signed up as a client, if you are not sign up - its free - now HERE.

Why Horse Hill shares are massively over-ramped - a top broker explains using UKOG's own maths

Yesterday I pointed out how David Lenigas and others were ramping Horse Hill like mad to get rescue placings away for companies such as Solo which are at death's door. The ramp continues today with new flow data. But in a private email to clients a leading broker explains just why the Leni-maths does not stack up at all.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast 24 January: Himex this is jail for Rob Terry & bad news for Watchstone + crap AIM investment companies

I am sorry for the delayed podcast but I am only just back from time in the Grim Northern welfare safari with the mother in law and thus can now let myself go with a volley of bad language.  I end with an explanation of who benefitted from the £150 million + Himex fraud at Quindell (QPP) laid bare earlier HERE and how it also affects Watchstone (WTG). Before that I talk of my annoyance on the silly blogger spats and the explain the difference between a cash shell and an investment company and why I regard our work on exposing the latter as invaluable. In the middle segment I have more bad news for oil companies such as XCite (XEL), IGAS (IGAS), Petroceltic (PCI) & Gulf Keystone (GKP) and for the sector as a whole but also for the markets. Dont blame China, we bears are still in the driving seat.

Social Media's corrupting influence on AIM

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast 20 June - smears & signing autographs

Recorded at 1 AM to work around the travel plans of pizza hardman Darren Atwater I am shattered after a shift as a waiter, cook, dishwasher and host at Free Speech & Liberty Pizza. I more shift today and then back to sabbatical. But I explain why I was autographing table cards here for Americans late last night. It all tuies in with what this website is trying to do but what crony capitalists are trying to stop us doing - I reveal the latest smears against me from those who resent us breaking news of certain placings. I also say why we break that news. Then I move onto Afren

Tom Winnifrith BearCast - 16 May

Oddly I had quite a lot to say in this podcast. I start on a personal note, feeling a confidence breached. I then move onto the buggers muddle at New World Oil & Gas (NEW) - really the shares must be suspended now until Wednesday. Then onto Insetco (INC) and lessons learned from a debacle we warned about and which the Deputy Sheriff of AIM covers again HERE. Finally onto the "Gary Newman rule" - his suggestion of locking in those taking part in AIM placings. I sympathise but I warn that it would kill off 400 companies on the casino. Beware of what you ask for.

Death to the bucket shops –now private investors can do the discounted placings themselves: AIM Revolution starts TODAY!

A revolution on AIM starts today. The days when small AIM stocks could only raise money at a huge discount with private investors excluded and screwed are now over thanks to a new platform  Primarybid which is going live right now – this will screw lazy City corporate brokers and – hopefully – put the bucket shops to the sword by allowing private investors to directly offer funding to AIM stocks. Let me explain, this is revolutionary and brilliant
