I told you that Metro Bank was dodgy...and that you shouldn't underestimate Burberry's Chinese chavs!
Zoo Digital – from November “confident in the prospects” to now “significantly below expectations”. Uh oh…

It has now been exactly a year and two days since VSA completed its “due diligence” on AIQ (AIQ) and brought this cash shell to the Standard List. And what a year of shame it has been.

In today's podcast I look at FastJet (FJET) - you were warned - Mercantile Ports & Logistics (MPL) - ditto - and Babcock (BAB) where the corrupt deadwood press do their best turd polishing today.

In today's podcast I look again at yellow journalism re Woodford Patient Capital Trust (WPCT) as covered HERE and the MySquar (MYSQ) fraud. The corrupt deadwood press is part of the problem not the solution. I cover the latest news from MySquar in case I don't have time for a dedicated article. Today is a Joshua day but I hope to write as he takes a nap. I also look at Mirriad (MIRI), Mosman Oil & Gas (MSMN) anmd Haydale Graphene (HAYD) whose news today means that Nigel Somerville will have enjoyed ouzo on his breakflast cornflakes.

The PR machine of Neil Woodford got its pliant servants at the Daily Mail and elsewhere in the corrupt deadwood press to make great play about how the Woodford Patient Capital Trust (WPCT) was about to go into the FTSE 250 Index so meaning that Index funds would have to buy the shares so the share price would go up. Uh Oh! Late last night came an announcement from the LSE:

I address issues raised by poltroons about yesterday';s bearcast and our new investment. I look at some awful yellow journalism at the Evening Standard regarding oily Piers Pottinger and the MySquar (MYSQ) fraud which demonstrates again why the dying deadwood press are part of the problem not the solution. I look at Amur Minerals (AMC) which is in VERY big trouble, I suggest. And also at Avanti Communications (AVN), Totally (TLY) and Venn Life (VENN). The big short dossier articler is on the runway and I should publish it very soon.

Bear analysts Boatman Capital made the schoolboy error of leaking part of its report to the Sunday Times. The deadwood press is part of the problem not the solution. Thus the Sunset Times scuttled off to Babcock (BAB) allowing the company to spin its side and the paper to run a piece slating the bear commentary. Such is the sordid state of financial journalism in Britain today. Anyhow for what it is worth the full report is now out and Babcock shares are starting to slide despite the company’s spinning c/o the deadwood press…

I see that smarmy lefty millionaire comedian Bob Mortimer is boasting in today's Sunday Telegraph about how he bought IQE (IQE) as a penny stock and it is now 163p. Methinks not Bob. I warmed folks to sell at 138.5p in a detailed dossier published in October HERE. Matt Earl's 36 page note of Friday has really set the cat among the pigeons. The shares are 104p but will - I suspect - tank on Monday.

I start with today's personal triumph on Quindell (QPP). And it is a real personal triumph for me, not that the deadwood press or my critics will recognise that. I then cover Milestone (MSG) - Ho Ho Ho - Pets At Home (PETS), Joshua's fave store, N Brown (BWNG), Worldwide Blockchain (BLOC) and Velocity (VEL) another dog from the FinnCap kennel.

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!

I was due to fly back to Greece on Saturday with British Airways but I did not. It is not for the reason you think, there being no British Airways flights at all out of Heathrow and Gatwick due to an IT bollocks up, but for other reasons equally damning of the airline, now part of International Airlines Group (IAG).

I know I shouldn’t have too much sympathy for the retired bigots that read the Daily Mail but its recent tipping of Nektan (NKTN), which will no doubt cost its loyal readers a few quid, is yet another reason to boycott the rag.

Lazy journalists on a local paper that thinks it is a national clearly read this website and are happy to lift our stories without attribution. Hence on 23rd October, Cynical Bear ran the "Challenger Suck Dick" scoop HERE. Four days later this is presented as news in the woeful City gossip column of the piss poor Evening Standard. Natch there is no attribution... the Standard would not want its readers to know where it gets its old news dressed up as news from would it?

According to reports elsewhere in the deadwood press, the appalling left wing Guardian Newspaper is set to report a full year loss of £173 million. That is the good news. The bad news is that the Guardian it is years away from going bust.

Folks like greedy & disgraced Richard Chase of Nyota think that the deadwood press is still king and that online publications do not count. He has clearly been too busy lubing up for his next job at King's Cross to notice that the Independent has shut its print edition and that this weekend both the Guardian and News International have announced that 100 of their staffers will be getting P45s in yet another round of cost cutting.

The deadwood press is part of the problem not the solution. It is corrupt, staffed by folks seeking their next career in PR and so who print what they are told and also staffed by lazy mothers who think they have a right to be served stories on a silver spoon without any fact check. This week's howler from the deadwood press is from the Sunday Times.

Daniel Dunkley of the Sunday Times business section is a tosser devoid of professional ethics. I explain why in this podcast and also why the deadwood press is a corrupt propaganda machine contribution to its own demographics driven demise. Then it is on to a session on value investing looking at Stanley Gibbons (SGI) and Surgical Innovations (SUN) with an en passant mention of today’s episode of Carry on up the Sefton (SER) thrown in.

Aussie law form Slater & Gordon must be getting pretty pissed at having to issue Oz RNS releases clarifying the lies issued by Quenron. Once again a Quisling journalist has made definitive statements about an offer made by S&G for Quindell’s QLS unit. The Quisling’s claims are preposterous but in clarifying Quindell does not deny them forcing S&G to publicly bitch slap. So this time, I recap:

I am not in a fit state to write much today so I shall communicate via BearCasts. There will be a regular podcast later but ahead of that I shall run a series of Quindell fallout specials. I start with the role of the dying industry that is Fleet Street and the deadwood press. It is part of the problem of crony capitalism and corruption on the AIM casino not the solution as I try to explian here.
