Westminster Group ramp: Arden Partners and MWM you are an effing disgrace

The morons are getting terribly excited by an article by my old mucker Mark Watson Mitchell (HERE) suggesting that shares in Westminster Group (WSG) chaired by disgraced ex Tory MP Tony Baldry of the fraud 3DM infamy, are cheap as chips. The article is titled “Giving Money away” But it is all demonstrable bollocks targeting the stupidest investors to try and pump the shares ahead of a bailout placing. That will be the 35th such bailout in Westminster’s tawdry history.

Tern – And Another Fundamental Question…..

We know that investee of AIM-listed jam-tomorrow investment company Tern plc (TERN), FundamentalVR (FVRVS), raised new money via a Series B funding round as announced on 31 May 2022, and again as announced on 11 August 2022 – the second of which cost Tern £1.5 million against the book value of its investment. On 28 July 2022, Tern chairman Ian Ritchie was announced to have bought 560,000 shares in Tern. This raises an interesting question.

Two questions for loathsome Neill Ricketts of Versarien, as his product loses certification

Versarien (VRS) shares have surged of late: last week, they lounged at 15p; yesterday, they reached 24p.

The spike is driven by chatroom speculation and is, in effect, a concerted pre-placing ramp. In that vein, I have two questions for loathsome CEO, Neill Ricketts:

The last two filings at ailing Vox Markets, the company paid by others to ramp their shares, make for interesting reading. Before Christmas, we saw revised accounts for the year to August 31 2020, showing negative net tangible assets of c. £450,000 and negative net current assets of £581,000, up by nearly 50% on the year.  So, having corrected all the errors in its first filed accounts, Vox looked bust.

AIM-listed but BVI-registered URU Metals (URU), which as Cynical Bear put it, seems more interested in drilling shareholders’ pockets than the ground, has announced a ramptastic pre-placing RNS this morning. Of course, we all knew it was coming as by my maths this John Zorbas POS is still technically insolvent and the clue is hidden in today’s announcement.

Stock Ramp Cobra Resources – just how is this NOT a misleading RNS?

Standard listed Cobra Resources (COBR) is the sort of enterprise that gives Aussie stock promoters a bad name. It has two brokers to pump the stock and do placings as often as possible, the esteemed blue chip houses of Peterhouse and SI Capital. Lots of placings, lots of dilution, but lots of commission, coke and hookers all round.  It also employs THREE firms of the calibre of LSE Share Talk to pump the stock to mug punters. But an RNS release of 17 August surely goes a step too far.

Of course, at first glance Trafalgar is an utterly worthless POS but recently announced that the holding company was clean of debt – the expectation being that the subsidiaries will either be packed off to the administrator’s office or sold off for a traditional £1.

Another day and another bullshit announcement from the company whose main business is issuing new shares while claiming to be an oil explorer, Frontera Resources (FRR). the timing is handy for Frontera is hosting a City presentation for mug punter Private Investors tomorrow. It all smells terribly as if more confetti is on the way. Let's start with the bullshit RNS.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast - 3 more Woodford disasters today & one tells a MASSIVE FECKING LIE as well

Oh dear it is another bad day at the office for Neil Woodford. First up I answer the question posed by Cynical about the great man HERE. Then I look at the disasters one of which told a monstrous lie in its RNS today: Mereo BioPharma (MPH), Mirriad (MIRI) and Hvivo (DOG). Then I look at Concepta (CPT), shares in which we own, Nighthawk (HAWK) and its dead cat bounce and finally at uber ramp Sound Energy (SOU) and what a CPR based on 2D seismic really means, i.e. Jack shit.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: MySquar & UKOG - spot the difference: not all "death spirals" are the same

In today's bearcast I start with a reader complaint but then he is a tosser so who cares? Then it is onto looking at the differences between the funding facilities at UK Oil & Gas (UKOG) and MySquar (MYSQ). I am bearish on both but the differences in the two packages are instructive. I look at Nature Group (NGR), Jim Mellon's uber-ramp FastForward (FFWD) and at Purplebricks (PURP) is the Neil Woodford bubble about to burst again, as even former supporters like Paul Scott admit my analysis was right and theirs wrong.

Mosman Oil & Gas - the Pump & Dump, naughty naughty Zac "the knife" & SP Angel

Two days ago Mosman Oil & Gas (MSMN) , share price at peak ramp 44p, put out its latest meaningless RNS. But it was the pump and I am afraid to say that the City's No 1 oil analyst Zac Phillips and his colleagues at SP Angel played their part....

Is this an early April fool video: The fraud Cloudtag is getting into blockchain?

Remember the fraud Cloudtag (CTAG), booted off AIM after its Nomad quit after it told just one too many total lies? Perhaps this is a spoof but it seems that fitness bands are not the place to be, Cloudtag is getting into blockchain. Natch!

Waseem Shakoor slates Frontera on its latest ramptastic presentation

The morally bankrupt and intellectually challenged PR fucktards at Yellow Jersey, who fund their miserable existences by helping shite companies such as Frontera Resources (FRR) ramp their worthless shares, organised an investor presentation last night for the faithful. By all accounts the wine flowed freely with the morons who attended not realising who was paying for it... it was them. Waseem Shakoor who is - rightly - short, as an £81 million market cap is absurd, notes:

Frontera Resources slammed for breaching disclosure guidelines and more

Folks can ignore the warnings of myself, Nigel Somerville and Waseem Shakoor about the overvalued ramp stock Frontera (FRR) if they wish. But the City's No 1 oil analyst Zac "The Knife" Phillips has just published a very specific and damning note. No doubt "fat bastard" Malcolm Graham Wood will ignore this real analysis as he continues ramping the shares with misleading statements in return for generous cash payments to buy yet more pies.  But it might pay the Bulletin Board Morons to listen to someone who is not on the payroll and does know what he is talking about. Over to The Knife...

Don't buy into the Saffron hype warns the City's No 1 oil analyst Zac The Knife

Ramptastic - if not entirely transparent RNS releases, Bulletin Board and twitter ramping by all the usual suspects with ludicrous price targets, no cash. What on earth did you expect was going to happen next at perennial uber dog Mayan Energy (MYN)? As those who were paying up to 0.9p at peak ramp just a few days ago contemplate how they were used to get away a £2 million placing at 0.6p they should have very serious questions for London's worst Nomad Roland Fatty Cornish who has signed off in recent ramptastic releases. Enter the fray Zac "The Knife" Phillips of SP Angel, the City's top oil analyst who has 14 questions that a Nomad with a shred of integrity and competence would have asked before allowing the releases.

Three oil stocks - Waseem says compare and contrast value & hype

Two are mega ramps and their valuations are insane and Waseem Shakoor is (rightly) short. The other one is one he owns. Which do you think is the value play? Here's what Waseem tweets:

Waseem Shakoor asks - has UK Oil & Gas scrapped flow testing of Broadford Bridge

The bear raider and professional northern git has been tweeting frantically with what he believes is photo evidence that key kit has been removed from Broadford Bridge meaning that UK Oil & Gas (UKOG) cannot be flow testing the well. That would seem odd as UK Oil needs good flow data to ramp the shares ahead of the bailout placing it so urgently needs now that all its cash has been spent. Curiouser and curiouser.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Starcom is the bullshitter of the day and Altona the ramp du jour

I start with Starcom (STAR) whose statement as it announces a placing is pure unadulterated bullshit. Do the crony capitalists who put this shite out take us all for morons? Then it is onto Altitude (ALT) whose shares are up by 19% today valuing the company at £32 million. Maybe I am thick ( don't comment on that!) but I just cannot get my head around that valuation and explain why. Finally onto Altona Energy (ANR) and related ramp Uru Metals (URU). This is the latest POS to get the full ramp treatment and I explain why its share price is absurd.

If it sounds too good to be true, it is too good to be true. That brings me to the Cascade (nothing to do with Bill Gates) ramp and Servision (SEV) and a detailed look at why it is utterly worthless. I look at the bogus French bid stories at UK Oil & Gas and how the Froggies are actually dumping the shares ahead of a bailout placing and because they are monstrously overvalued. Its also placing ahoy at Magnolia (MAGP) and Andalas (ADL) which is so shite it makes UKOG look like BP. I look at Blenheim (BNR), the boardroom departures and why its shares are 50% overvalued. Finally I try to work out how soon Condor Gold (CNR) will have yet another placing and why I would not back it at any price.

Nuformix: “Aberdeenman”, the LSE’s very own Daddy McPig is wrong again – listen to him at your peril

I was excited to see how Nuformix (NFX), the renamed company previously known as Levrett, would perform on debut yesterday as the LSE’s bulletin board in-house expert was predicting great things. Alas, it was all a bit of a damp squib but let’s hope at least that he managed to take a bit off the table during his ramp though.

Operational Update from UKOG - 100% ramptastic shite, placing ahoy red alert

The shares are tanking said the PR man to lyin' Steve Sanderson, CEO of UK Oil & Gas (UKOG). How will we get the bailout placing away? I know said Lyin' Steve, let's put out a ramptastic operational update. And so lo and behold Lyin's Steve issued the release and the Bulletin Board Morons fell for it (again) and the shares zoomed from 4.05p to 5.35p-5.4p. It is placing ahoy.

African Potash litigation update - now almost 100 claimants

There is another update on the potential claim against Nomad Cantor Fitzgerald for its negligence in allowing the fraud African Potash (AFPO) to post utterly untrue statements to ramp its shares ahead of a rescue placing.

Reason to sell MySQUAR No. 135: Shocking trading update - pre-placing lies ramp all too clear

The reason for the deafening silence emanating from uber-dog MySQUAR (MYSQ) became all too clear this morning as it issued a shocking trading announcement which makes clear that revenue has fallen off a cliff. Surely something should have been mentioned at the time of the placing in late-July?

Saffron Energy: The ramp is on already – it’s all in the name

I’ve been on holiday for a week in Italy (funnily enough) and am just catching up on a few interesting pieces of news and thought I would comment on the Saffron Energy (SRON) deal with Sound Energy (SOU) that was announced last week.

Then he said he never claimed that. Then a video emerged of him saying that. So is that one big lie or two? Anyhow as UK Oil & Gas tries to ramp its shares ahead of a placing we have more ramptastic news from the Hill.

Challenger Acquisitions: Really ugly stuff – no winners here, other than Yorkville and Magna of course

Andalas Energy you are scum - a day of shame for AIM from this worthless crap

Andalas Energy (ADL) and its loathsome boss Dave "the rule breaker" Whitby represent all is worst about the AIM Casino. The company is worthless and its sole achievement has been an industrial scale transfer of wealth from the many to the few. Even by its own tawdry standards yesterday was a low point and it is a matter that I shall now be asking the authoriies to investigate as, blatant, market abuse. But first we must rewind to August 8.

MySQUAR: Finally, house broker Beaufort confirms “operating break-even” actually means “still heavily loss-making”

I always take house broker notes with a heavy pinch of salt as they will paint as optimistic a picture as possible so this morning’s effort from Beaufort Securities on its client, MySQUAR (MYSQ), surprised me somewhat with its honesty but it’s good to finally put the nonsense about “operating break-even” to bed.

Echo Energy: How insiders made over £3 million in less than a month – shocking non-disclosure

My last piece on Echo Energy (ECHO) looked at how connected party Greenberry was making a fortune out of the ramp and also looked at rather odd TR-1s. Well history is repeating itself and, as always expected, yesterday’s TR-1 shows how the other connected “institutional investor” here, Pegasus, has also made a very quick buck - not that it told anyone when it was doing so!

Echo Energy - gets into bed with twice convicted market abuser as its new broker

Having rather publicly fired its old retained broker Brandon Hill Research on 31 July for being sensible, Echo Energy (ECHO) has today announced it has a new broker Hannam & partners. Who? I must admit that I have never heard of this firm and an RNS search shows it acting for just one other London listed company as its retained broker. But maybe it has a big research capacity to ramp the shares? er...

Echo Energy fires its broker - for doing the sensible thing & dumping shares

Echo Energy (ECHO) the overvalued wannabee oil explorer has today announced that it is firing its retained broker Brandon Hill. This is most unusual.

MySquar - the numbers just make no sense whatsoever - what is it hiding?

Yesterday morning I ran a piece pointing out that at 0.15p the valuation of PCGE (PCGE) was utterly insane and anyone buying shares (at up to 0.16p!) deserved the beating that would surely follow. It did not take long. At 2.19 PM the company announced it had raised £400,000 at 0.1p. Ouch. The shares are now 0.11p to sell. BBMs 0 The Sheriff of AIM 1. A familiar scoreline.

In September I used EVR Holdings (EVRH) as a case study in ‘How to make money out of a Chris Akers stock’ and suggested that it could rise from around 3p and wouldn’t be surprised to seeing it hit 6p, but would perhaps get out then. Well, it hit my target price this week, more quickly than I initially envisaged, so what would I do now?

I say once again because we have now lost track of the number of times this has happened. And the lies have been told with deliberate purpose: to pump the share price to allow both insiders and those backing placing after placing to dump stock at inflated prices. This is fraud.

But now old Lorne is back in full ramptastic mode with two announcements in two days at the end of last week.

ShareProphets RNS Translation Service: Frontera Resources – rampety ramp, rampety ramp (PS you’ve just been diluted again)

AIM-listed Texas-based oil explorer and monster cash-burner Frontera Resources (FRR) yesterday released another ramptastic RNS. The shares stormed ahead by 29% on the day, with the rise getting going at about 11am. No doubt someone just got very lucky, as an RNS didn't come out until 3.35pm.

Tom Winnifrith Bonus Bearcast: Justin the Clown & Cloudtag: Manna for Morons

Sheep shagging buffoon Justin the Clown is unrepentant after the Andalas debacle and yesterday transmitted a podcast with the CEO of Cloudtag (CTAG) which is the Bulletin Board Moron ramp de jour. In this podcast I tear into the Clown but also into Cloudtag explaining all the reasons why it is a sell and flagging up the issues the Clown would not tackle as he sucked up to another CEO on the ramp and his moronic audience.

Harvest Minerals: re-Placement ramp underway!

We do like to provide balance here on ShareProphets and in that vein we bring you yesterday’s morning note from Beaufort Securities, house broker to Harvest Minerals. As exclusively revealed HERE by Tom Winnifrith with his Sheriff’s hat on, the company pulled a placing at 8p last week, in the hope of getting one away at a higher price. But that appears to have triggered a short squeeze as forward-sellers were forced to cover their positions. But it now seems that it is full rampety-ramp steam ahead for a second attempt.

Bulletin Board Ramper of the Week sponsored by Strat Aero PR man sayitlikeitis

Over the weekend we revealed how Strat Aero's PR man boasted of pretending to be a Bulletin Board Moron, sayitlikeitis, to post rampatstic nonsense on the LSE & ADVFN asylums. He was paid to ramp the stock with ludicrous claims and comments but some folks do it for free!. Please nominate your BB ramper of the week posting the most ludicrous claims you can find on boards or on twitter (so Big Gob tweet ramps are eligible) in the comments section below with a deadline of midnight Sunday 15th August. Ramps on any stock are eligible.
