Tom Winnifrith Bearcast – V is for Vindication day

As I write, four of the top 12 fallers are stocks that I have exposed as total wronguns and one of the four even coughed up that I had gpt a scoop on Friday. In today’s podcast, which should please Matthew and his dog, I cover: Omega Diagnostics (ODX) and its porkies, MGC Pharmaceuticals (MXC), a Turner Pope dog still valued at £40 million even now but not worth a fraction of that,  Guild ESports (GILD) & the greed of David Beckham, Vast Resources (VAST) and the fraud Chill Brands (CHLL ) which could be going down the plughole for good within a  couple of weeks. I forgot to discuss the latest news from Zak Mir and Lift Ventures. That will have to wait for another day.

After scoop by UK's top financial journalist, Omega Diagnostics and Paul "Queenie" McManus ‘fess to discounted placing but deceive (again) about finances

On Friday I reported that Omega Diagnostics (ODX) was sounding out folks about a deeply discounted bailout placing, at as low as 5p. This was not speculation, this was not guesswork. I had a source. This is what is called good journalism, a scoop, printing something of note that the subject does not want to read. Today Omega ‘fessed up but, natch, it also deceived.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: I am going to report MyHealthChecked to AIM Regulation

Today’s scoop on MyHealthChecked (MHC) has moved the shares and looks like great news. But it might not be. What I have engaged in is not as one moron on ADVFN suggests “willy waving” or “ramping” but good journalism, that is to say breaking news someone does not want published. MyHealthChecked has broken AIM Rules and so created a disorderly market and though I own shed loads of shares, I must be consistent and report the company. AIM Regulation should be slapping someone’s wrists. I also comment on Helium One (HE1) and Verditek (VDTK).

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: A day when ShareProphets is covered in glory (again)

Yet again I have been thanked by the regulator for exposing cooked PLC books. Not that this will stop BBMs from defaming me in all the usual ways but those who count know we matter. So I discuss Eden Research (EDEN) and KPMGThen there is Peter Brailey’s amazing scoop. Ta Guido for the hat tip (not!) – I discuss Powerhouse Energy (PHE) and Tim Yeo the sleazebag ex Tory MP. Then I turn to Verditek (VDTK) as it misleads again c/o the AIM Shit of the year Richard “Gollum” Gill as his green ponzi bond deadline approaches. Finally there is the fraud Zoetic (ZOE) where my target price remains 0p after today’s dire admission. Add to your shorts.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast - more failures at the FCA and more bonuses plus Kefi & country risk

I start with a few thoughts on Kefi Gold & Copper (KEFI) in the wake of today’s scoop. Then it is onto more failings at the FCA and the scandal of its staff bonuses. Finally some thoughts on inflation which is now clearly starting to get a grip. Even so, I can’t stop myself holding a good bit of cash.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: what can be done to stop corrupt and bad folks like Lucy Burton and Neil Woodford?

This podcast is all about the Woodford scandal of today. The corruption of the Sunday Telegraph in trading a scoop for dishonest journalism and the scandal that the disgraced fund manager may be back after less than 20 months of not screwing around with other folks’ cash. Why must people like Lucy and Neil be stopped and who will stop Neil? Lucy, I fear, is destined for great things in the corrupt world of the deadwood press.

Bahamas Placing pulled as it fails to raise $25m & the excuses are outright lies

In scoop after scoop this week starting HERE and ending HERE I detailed how Bahamas Petroleum (BPC) was trying to raise $25 million, first at 1.4p, then at 1.2p and finally at 1p. Those who signed up at 1p were told it would be announced Wednesday then today. In fact it has been pulled as the company could not, even at 1p, get close to $25 million. But today Bahamas has quite simply LIED.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: The Deadwood press is institutionally corrupt, case study Sunday Times & Quindell today

Liam Kelly of The Sunday Times spins for Watchstone (WTG) in a terribly dishonest way becuase it has been shown an email relating to the Quindell (QPP) era and Slater & Gordon.

All is discussed in today's podcast.

The Corruption of the Deadwood Press: The Mail on Sunday, Jim Mellon and Agronomics

Agronomics (ANIC) is an AIM listed firm which knew full well on Friday that it was set to raise £4.5 million at 5p - as against a 5.5p mid. So here is what to do. Leak the story to the fraudsters fave journalist, Ben Harrington, who will give it an utterly misleading write-up in the Mail on Sunday in return for the "scoop." MoS readers fill their boots on Monday and the shares move higher - they are now 6.5p. So Harrington and the Fail on Sunday get another "scoop", the Spiv clients of broker Peterhouse get to flip the stock and thank Peterhouse which earns 5% to pay for the coke and hookers and the company is cashed up.  The only folk who get screwed are readers of the Fail on Sunday who are buying shares on the basis of completely fake news.

Gotcha – Bidstack completes placing at just 12.5p: feel that cashburn

Finally, after almost three weeks of trying, and after I forced them to ‘fess with a scoop HERE, Bidstack (BIDS) and tawdry broker Optiva have managed to complete a placing. They were aiming to raise £5 million at 15p. Then it became 13.25p. The placing was completed at just 12.5p.

Mail on Sunday hack Jamie "limp dick" Nimmo runs 100% untrue story about PCGE

You may remember that Mail on Sunday hack Jamie Nimmo is a liar. Mr Limp Dick claimed to have “revealed” a scoop which in fact I had actually revealed 20 days earlier. Now he is telling porkies with his latest “scoop” on PCGE with the story “City firm quits as adviser to PCG Entertainment over bond probe”. Oh dear Jamie you are a sad man. Why do you have such a problem with the truth?

Audioboom – placing flops and it still dissembles: Gotcha!

Last Thursday evening I revealed in a bit of a scoop that Audioboom (BOOM) was trying to raise £8 million at 2.5p. The next morning the company was forced into a statement and said it was trying to raise £5 million at 2.5p. That was not really true - I published the deck the wretched company had sent to potential investors showing it was trying to raise £8 million. Today it fessed up that it has raised just £2.8 million with £1.2 million of that coming from the board and the Candy Brothers chucking good money after bad. What a shower…

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Another scoop on dissembling POS Bidstack & a strange deal at ValiRx

I am procrastinating ahead of a 24 mile training walk in the Grim North as the wind blows hard and the rain tips it down. As you think of my suffering please please donate now HERE. In consider the 3Xs in light of today's Pathfinder (PFP) scoop. I apologise to Peter Greensmith, he is not the knobhead in the Bidstack (BIDS) affair and indeed not a knobhead at all. I name the real knobheads and have another scoop on the company showing how firms like Optiva make AIM a disorderly market with their slimeball behaviour. Finally I look at yesterday's financing by ValiRx (VAL) which looks like a bad deal in so many ways.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Greensmith dont be such a knobhead when I scoop a placing by your POS client

This website is placing scoop central. For the avoidance of doubt we do not engage in market speculation we report fact. Peter Greensmith you know that to be the case and are being a knobhead for pretending otherwise. Yes this is a bad language special covering Audioboom (BOOM), Bidstack (BIDS) and Westminster Group (WSG). I also cover Inspirit (INSP) and FairFx (FFX) and explain what has been occupying me today: we have two new cats. Finally as I prepare for a 24 mile training walk on Saturday do the decent thing and donate to Rogue Bloggers for Woodlarks HERE

BREAKING EXCLUSIVE: Project Coffee - Audioboom set to place again at 2.5p

The codename for the latest bailout funding of Audioboom (BOOM) is Project Coffee. The presentation, which I have seen, gushes about growth opportunities but that is always the way with this serial deliverer of jam tomorrow. There is no mentioning of burgeoning trade payables. That is always the way with Audioboom and its bailout placings. Anyhow, the company is, according to its jargin filled document "now seeking to raise a ‘growth’ capital round of c£8m at c2.5p per share."  With the stock at 2.3-25p that might be a bit of an ask. Time for an official comment on this ShareProphets scoop methinks...

Mail on Sunday journalist Jamie Nimmo you are a liar who shames your profession with your 20 day old limp dick "scoop"

I have noted before the way that stars of the deadwood press all too often run material which first appeared on ShareProphets, claiming that it is their scoop. Today's proven liar who shames our noble profession is Jamie Nimmo of the Mail on Sunday who claims to "reveal" that heroin dealer Frank Timis owns 14% of Argo Blockchain (ARB). You can see hios "scoop" below. There is only one problem with Nimmo's fantasy of breaking a story....

Is Tom Winnifrith right to out companies doing placings?

The busting of a placing by AIM-listed UK Oil and Gas (UKOG) at 1p by Tom Winnifrith has caused a bit of controversy. It is not the first time he has been accused of being irresponsible by blowing the lid on a placing only for it to be pulled or the price dropped. Anyone left holding the baby gets their fingers burned – in the recent example quite badly if they had been buying into the ramp at north of 1.4p only to see the company raise cash at just 0.8p. Is it right?

Ooops a daisy another day and another scoop and another hugely discounted placing revealed by yours truly. Apologies to Paul Scott if he was suckered into this one too by a ramptastic trading statement on May 31 but with shares in Provexis (PXS)  trading at 0.26p-0.29p this perennial uber-dog with fleas is passing the hat around again.
