Goals Soccer Centres – ‘investment delivering improvement’, ‘progress from strategic recovery plan’. Hmmm…

Another week where 7 out of 10 of the top articles are videos or Bearcasts. That's fine by me, it's a USP of ShareProphets membership and I'm glad that people are using one of the defining things of our site in such numbers.

I start with a look at whether some current assets are really current assets, taking my inspiration from my earlier analysis of Jim Mellon's flagship dog Regent Pacific. I explain why getting this right is so important in endeavouring proper company analysis. Then it is onto Friday's market sell off caused by what even ABC now admits was 100% fake news about Donald Trump. I look at the tax plans of POTUS which are inspirational and compare them with the rhetoric coming out of Jeremy Corbyn's Labour Party. I increasingly think Corbyn will win the next election and explain why that would be such a disaster. Tomorrow there may be no bearcast as I am travelling but I plan to do a double video share tip for paying subscribers only

We're four days into the reader supported ShareProphets and I'd rate it a stunning success. But what lessons are to be learnt are less clear.

Hugh Hendry was one of the funniest and articulate of fund managers and for a while his Eclectica funds delivered - as bears - spectacular returns. But Mr Market went against him and he has now closed up shop with his main fund worth a meagre $30.6 million. His final parting shot is a letter in which he has given up on fighting fake news. Over to the great man

Once again, Tim Martin of JD Wetherspoon (JD) has let rip with a devestating attack on the EU and its attitude to Brexit. It comes as JD unveiled a 43% increase in Full Year Profits achieved, as the fake news broadcasters at Channel 4 and the BBC would say "despite Brexit." Over to our hero of the day, Tim Martin:

Neil Woodford's fund management group has spent vast sums advertising its products in the financial press and has received vast amounts of slavishly positive comment in the same publications. These two facts are, of course, in no way related. And so after Woodford said sorry, in a terribly unconvincing manner, for having done so badly over the past year how does the Mail on Sunday's Alex Sebastian, himself a unit holder, spin this? With fake news natch

Sometimes for routine incompetence but more normally for attempting to publish the sort of money tree worship inspired fake news that should be the preserve of the BBC and the Guardian, pizza hardman Darren Atwater gets fired at least once a week by ShareProphets. Naturally he is reinstated almost immediately. The winner of this week's BBM Contest gets to fire Darren next Monday by mail or in person. What a prize!

Of course the slide of Sterling - as I explained in full HERE - is nothing to do with Brexit. It started months and months before the vote when the polls showed we were certain to stay in the Evil Empire. It is, as I pointed out, to do with base rate expectations and growing fiscal imprudence in the UK. But still the BBC and other fake news outlets such as Channel 4 say that it is down to Brexit.

Like the AIM Market itself, there are aways an array of losers to choose from in the Bulletin Board Moron of the week. Well actualy (TW here) that is yet more fake news from Darren. It really is time to fire him again and so he can go make up stories with his fellow Trump hating money tree worshippers at The Guardian or the BBC. There were only two entries last week. Come on folks surely you can supply more this week? Tell you what i shall offer a prize. Anyhow last week's winner was:

Usually I comment on the most popular stories of the week, and the ones that were not read as much as they should have. But today I was going to tell more lies about President Trump and then smear Robert Lee like every other brain dead liberal Metropolitan elitist and finally the patience of Tom Winnifrith has snapped. If Darren wants to write fake news he can fucking well quit and go work for the fucking Guardian.

When the Brexit remoaners paper of choice, The Guardian, suffers an internet glitch there is always the lamentable Independent which serves up a daily diet of fake news on all matters European. Yesterday we learned that Southern Salads, a Kent firm, had gone bust and 250 ex workers could thank Brexit for it all. Well that is the Indy line, except that it is palpably false. It is just made up news. Fake news at every level.

I bet the BBC News picks up on it and runs with it too. But its sister publication is quick out of the blocks...The Guardian today runs with a raft of misleading headlines and other fake news as is its wont but the one on Brexit driving EU workers abroad wins the prize. The left wing rag with plunging sales and spiralling losses states: "Almost half of highly skilled EU workers 'could leave UK within five years". The sub head is "Deloitte study finds 47% were considering leaving after Brexit, while overall one-third of non-British workers could leave". Right, okay but hang on what did the survey actually say and was it big enough to be statistically valid?

I have to confess to being very depressed over the course of the last few months. I think the depression has actually been increasing and I put it all down to media and politics.

Okay so PIRC makes up fake news about pay at Sports Direct (SPD) and backs discredited management at Bowleven so as to stay "in" with its City fund manager pals but at least as corporate governance wonks its own annual report would be a model of transparency and all round rectitude. Er...no. As you would expect from folks like this rank hypocrisy is at play.

The staff of Corporate Governance tossers PIRC are a parasite sucking the lifeblood from the capitalist system and so it is delightful to see them doubly humiliated today. First up they backed the despised board at Bowleven (BLVN) who were ousted by shareholders. Now they appear to have done the impossible: make loathsome lardball Mike Ashley look like a hard done by victim by publishing some very fake news...

Hat tip to reader Bearfacts for pointing this out but one must ask if the London South East Bulletin Board, aka the LSE Asylum, is close to going bust? Fingers crossed.

Last week's Bulletin Board Moron of the week demonstrated the complete moral bankruptcy of the LSE Bulletin Board, see HERE. Actually all Bulletin Boards exist largely by stealing advertising revenue from those who create genuine content, so, ultimately, driving them to the wall as I explained here at the weekend. And let us not forget that the LSE had the timerity to threaten me with legal action for pointing out that it was publishing "fake news" on broker buy notes. And so this week's contest is in honor of the prize mothers who run the LSE Asylum. To win simply post the most inane BB or twitter post about shares that you can find in the comments section below. Deadline: midnight Sunday 5th February.

On the LSE Asylum Cloudtag (CTAG) Board, some punters were excited that their new product, the Onitor has now finally received some reviews based on this website . What a joke, the site had a total review feedback of 9 user reviews and also states under market status about the product “Unreleased”. I put it to you that a review of a product not released has got to be "fake news" - you can't review something you cannot use.

Well, this is awkward.. Prime Minister Theresa May will be visiting newly minted US President Donald Trump next week and hopes to initiate some sort of trade deal, a mere 48 hours after Trump told the world of his plans: “From this day forward, it’s going to be only America first. America first.” But I am sure that he'll make an exception for us. TW Note - Does Darren actually bother to check what Trump says on Trade deals? More fake news from remoaning liberal losers...

I have been alerted by various folk to the fact that a Fox Marble (FOX) customer Eboracum Marble has a First Gazette notice out against it which, according to the knockers, means it is going bust/is a fraud and that Fox will issue a profits warning. This has seen the shares drift to 7.75p. Sometimes before you hit the sell button it pays to make a few phone calls. Which is why you should buy the shares today.
