Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: My fecking feet are killing me & will Neil Woodford's Waterloo be in Guernsey

Published 9 days ago

I start with a discussion abiut a 19 mile rogue bloggers training walk today and about Woodlarks which I compare to the big name charities. I beg you to join the roll call of heros HERE. Then I look at Neil Woodford and events in Guernsey and explian in detail the role of the FCA and the ACD and why this could collapse very soon indeed. I discuss why no IFA worth his or her salt can risk not advising clients to redeem.

And this week’s disaster for Neil Woodford is…..Guernsey

Published 10 days ago

The big news for Neil Woodford this week is that his joke listings in Guernsey have been suspended, casting a big shadow over his tactics of playing with the rules over the unlisted stocks within his portfolio. The questions ahead are whether they will now be booted off the Guernsey International Stock Exchange, and what the FCA will demand of him in response.

This week’s top disaster for Neil Woodford

Published 16 days ago

Our good friends over at Citywire have again come up with bad news for Neil Woodford, in revealing that investors in his Equity Income Fund (EIF) reacted badly to last month’s sequence of dismal news by cashing out to the tune of £160 million. Having started March with £4.7 billion, EIF slumped to £4.4 billion last month which suggests that redemptions are not the only problem for Woodford.

London & Capital Finance, which we have done so much to expose here, is just the tip of what will prove to be an enormous mis-selling scandal where, naturally, the overpaid poltroons at the FCA have been 100% asleep at the wheel.

In today's bearcast I go further on the growing scandal we are uncovering at Management Resource Solutions (MRS) and also at Nigel's work this weekend on Neil Woodford.

With a big hat-tip to Citywire, is this the biggest Woodford scandal yet?

Published 23 days ago

Citywire yesterday published an article which stated that Neil Woodford has listed four previously unlisted investments held by  Woodford Equity Income Fund on the International Stock Exchange in….er….Guernsey. Surely even Guernsey’s own residents would agree that this is not exactly the London Stock Exchange! But the odd thing is that Woodford himself seems to have been a tad reticent on the matter – I don’t see any headline proclaiming great success in gaining a listing in Guernsey from Neil Woodford! Why might that be? And that appears to be the nub of the issue.

Today we have news of a shocking transfer of unquoted crap from Woodford's flagship Equity Income Fund to Woodford Patient Capital Trust (WPCT). It may keep the FCA at bay on one point for a while but it is a joke that only serves to create fresh problems. And the RNS is misleading to boot on the issue of cash. Or lack of it. As I noted yesterday, the FCA would not tolerate this nonsense from any other fund manager but its pressure is forcing Nomates to act in an increasingly desperate manner. If you enjoyed this podcast please support the EIGHT rogue bloggers for Woodlarks with a small donation HERE

Are the wheels about to come off ref Telit’s disposal?

I can’t help but notice that the share price of AIM-listed Telit (TCM) hit a new end-of-week low last week, closing down at just 118.9p – a level not seen since August 2017. Of course, that still capitalises the company at £152 million, which seems extraordinary for a company looking to sell its crown jewels to leave it with, according to The Sheriff, perhaps only $10-20 million of cash at peak working capital usage. And loss making at the full year. But why the collapse now? Is that anything to do with the putative purchaser?

I look at too good to be true investments starting with London & Capital Finance. I look at house prices and why I think that bad data gives far too rosy a view. I look at US jobs data yesterday and what that means for base rates. And I look at the big short positions in AIM stocks. Don't bet against the bears! Now off to West Ham. 

Neil Woodford's missing annual report caption contest

Published 108 days ago

The FCA must be all over him on this matter as Neil Woodford is now 4 days late with the Woodford Investment management annual report. What is he hiding? As we wait for Britain's most conceited fund manager to come clean and file, I invite you to provide a suitable capition for the image underneath in the comments section below. As ever the prioze for the wittiest entry is a semi naked photo of Britain's top share blogger (mornings only), thirsty Paul Scott. The deadline to enter is midnight Saturday, January 5.

BREAKING: It is official – Neil Woodford is late with his accounts: what is he hiding?

Published 110 days ago

Last year Britain’s most conceited fund manager, whose flagship fund is ranked 241/241 for performance,  Mr Neil Woodford filed accounts 11 days before the deadline, on 20 December. This year Woodford Investment management has yet to file its accounts for the year to March 31 2018. It is late. It will be fined. The FCA will be having kittens.  You want proof?

In 2017 Neil Woodford filed accounts for Woodford Investment Management, due by December 31, on December 20th. It was thus at a time when no-one was reading the financial press that it emerged that despite a shite year for his investors, for to the 12 months to March 31 2017, Neil himself had trousered £7 million in dividends as a reward for being so useless.

Neil Woodford's Christmas Carol - the final chapter of three

‘Twas the night before Christmas.  The man who liked to be known not only for his humility but also for being Britain’s greatest ever fund manager lay back on his disruptive Eve mattress next to his rather flatulent but ever faithful old poodle Dampers. Whilst his companion snored loudly, Neil Woodford was deeply troubled by not just one but a second ghostly apparition that night.

Frontera – Nomad quits, shares suspended, it is game over morons & ouzo time for me

Published 120 days ago

I have spent all weekend being abused on twitter by morons who own shares in Frontera Resources (FRR) - notably @keithcareth, check his feed he is insane -  who insisted that I did not know what I was talking about, that the FCA was after me, etc etc etc. I await an apology as today – as was inevitable after our weekend revelations HERE and HERE – the Nomad, Cairn, has quit. The shares are suspended and here is why it is game over.

Woodford – did the FCA or the bank prevent him from fully standing his corner with Kier?

Published 120 days ago

A spot of maths and it seems that we were all wrong! In the prospectus for the rights issue by Kier Group (KIE) we were told that Neil Woodford was sitting on 13,797,000 shares, or 14.13%. We were also told that if he took up his rights in full he would hold 22,903,020 shares, or 14.13%. We know that Woodford piled in for more shares after the rights offer was announced. So what did he end up with?

 The court filing below hangs Frontera (FRR) in its own words. It makes it clear that it is in default on the Outrider loans so is likely to lose all its assets. It also lays bare its failure to secure external funding throughout the past nine months and its now utterly parlous financial state. The shares should be suspended first thing Monday. If not they will utterly collapse. If you have ignored my repeated warnings and can sell Monday do so at any price. And this document may trigger another FCA investigation.

ShareProphets RNS Translation Service: Yu Group ‘fesses up (again) as shares collapse another 22%

And so at last we have the results of the forensic accounting review which followed the confession from AIM-listed Yu Group (YU.) on 24 October 2018 that its accounts were, in effect, a work of sheer fiction and has seen the company’s £12 million placing at £10 per share being investigated by the FCA. We already knew that the bill would be around £10 million – but now it is going to be around £13 million. As ever, the ShareProphets  RNS Translation Service is on hand to help us understand all this (original in bold).

F*CK YU – now the FCA investigates as suspicions of securities fraud mounts

On Monday I wondered out loud what was happening about the forensic investigation into various accounting matters – including accrued income recognition and impairment of trade debtors at Yu Group (YU.). Then there was the small matter of a £12 million placing on the back of FY17 accounts which now appear to be somewhat questionable. Well blow me down with a feather: now the FCA has notified the company that it intends to conduct an investigation and the shares (which I called a bargepole of the highest order on the initial ‘fessing up of 24th October) have now fallen below half of the IPO price of March 2016.

The fraud that is Telit (TCM) continues to unravel. We already knew that ex FD and CEO Yosi fait was being investigated for selling all his shares in early July 2017 while he was aware of damaging price sensitive information ( a profits warning) – that would be insider dealing. We know that founder, former CEO and the man who is still running Telit via puppet directors, Uzi Katz, is being investigated for not admitting that he was a fraudster and fugitive from justice.  Now it gets bigger.

And so it has come to pass.  The shares are up 4p at 71p having fallen 29p in late trade Monday. IQE has also clarified its profits warning and that has offered some comfort. It won’t last.

Two days after MySquar (MYSQ) suspended its shares on the AIM Casino and admitted to fraud and a cash crisis its odious slug of a chairman, the well known PR spinner Mr Piers Pottinger has quit as a director and from the company. Piers may wish to distance himself from what is a very messy crime scene but it is too late. He was either involved in the fraud or enabled it by his incompetence or his silence or both.

The rumour swirling round the City is that following an FCA visit 2 weeks ago the SFO called in on a well known firm today.

I don't know but in the current climate folks are prepared to believe the worst. I discuss why the number of AIM Casino listed companies will plunge from c930 today to sub 800 within 18 months if the bear market in small caps continues or, indeed, accelerates. I think it could.

That Telit (TCM) is going to zero is a given as I explained yesterday HERE. But now we need to know why Canaccord quit on May 26 as Nomad. I suggest the reason in this podcast and call for a wider AIM Casino rule change on Nomad resignations. Then it is on to 2 CEO resignations. The bombastic prick David Williams has gone from drowning in debt Avanti Communications (AVN). Avanti is toast but I run through the red flags pertaining to Williams himself and ask a question about his payoff for failure. As for Redcentric (RCN) can I claim this as a scalp? Frazer  Fisher must have known about the mega payroll fraud of March 31 2016 as I revealed HERE. Yet he trousered a big 2016 bonus and sold stacks of shares just after publishing the 2016 number which he KNEW WERE CROOK. This departure is to avoid him being in situe when the FCA, FRC and SFO announce their findings. Actually can the Sheriff claim a scalp on the bombastic prick Williams too? I got the FRC to pan his company and exposed all sorts of Avanti red flags and naughtiness. Two scalps in a day - ouzo time?

Today the train wreck happened and as I write, shares in what was the most shorted stock on the casino, are 39% down at 156p. But a £199 million market cap is still a rum and coke. The shares could be 20p and I still would not buy. Pro tem I count this as another big win for the Sheriff of AIM.

Oh dear, AIM-listed jam- (and product) tomorrow (or sometime, maybe) CloudTag (CTAG) closed last night notching up (or, perhaps down) a bid price of just 6.75p per share. This might be causing a few headaches over at L1 Towers as it seeks to convert its remaining £1.2 million of convertible notes from Tranche 1 of its death spiral funding package. My plan to become a death spiral financier on the Casino seems to have hit a nasty problem – that of headroom in already existing share issuance authorities of the investee company running out and leaving me lobster-potted in unconvertible notes. Of course, I can “persuade” the company to increase the authorities, but time is of the essence: I want to offload ASAP and bank my bunce.

Cloudtag & Nomad Cairn: Another urgent request to AIM Regulation

Published 876 days ago

Over the weekend I urged AIM Regulation and the FCA to open a formal enquiry into market abuse and securities fraud by the AIM uber-fraud Cloudtag (CTAG). This morning I have sent an urgent missive to AIM Regulation and its hapless boss Marcus Stuttard asking why Cloudtag is not being forced to postpone its General Meeting allowing it to issue more shares.

Cloudtag & Cairn Financial: A letter to Marcus Stuttard at AIM Regulation & the FCA please instigate formal investigation now

Published 877 days ago

You may remember that some Cloudtag (CTAG) owning moron contacted the FCA to demand that they shut me down. Oddly that seems to have come to nothing. But the regulators at Canary Wharf as well as Marcus Stuttard's team of Keystone Cops at AIM Regulation must be awqare of this fraudulent company by now. I have today written to both showing the clear evidence that Cloudtag has committed market abuse and fraud and demanding that a formal investigation be opened at once into the company AND its Nomad Cairn Financial. And here is why, as I publish the letter in full.

Letter to AIM Regulation & FCA re Advanced Oncotherapy - URGENT enquiry needed now

Published 878 days ago

Yesterday shares in Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO) plunged after it fessed up that a critical deal worth up to $120 million with a Chinese entity had encountered problems. Those who backed a big fundraise just weeks ago are already 26% down. But the incident begs massive questions about the timeline of disclosure and RNS statements that appear to be utterly untrue. I have written to the FCA & AIM Regulation, as this appears to be market abuse, outlining my very specific concerns and demanding an urgent enquiry and, if appropriate, that sanction be taken against those responsible. The letter is below:

Advanced Oncotherapy - so does it have any orders at all? What does it define as a sale? This stinks

Published 879 days ago

How many commercial orders does Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO) have for its Proton beam machines? I put it to you that the answer is zero but that it has always been zero. This company appears to have over-egged the pudding on a serial basis, allowing it to raise vast sums. The FCA should be now launching an urgent investigation into this matter demanding to see original "commercial sales" paperwork in order to see if Advanced has been as transparent as the rules dictate.

And that is a clear cut case of fraud. But will Marcus Stuttard, the head of AIM Regulation do anything about it or is fraud now acceptable on AIM?

And the chocolate teapots appear happy to let this continue. It is bad enough that Terry boasts that he made in excess of £30 million from the Quindell fraud, but it seems in Britain he can carry on stealing and no-one cares.

Lonmin Offers a High Risk Recovery Play with Large Upside

Tern – mysterious warrant exercise at 0.02p. Where is the regulation?

Published 1327 days ago

As previously flagged HERE there is some mystery regarding a warrant exercise announced by AIM-listed Tern plc (TERN) on 17 August (see HERE). I wondered where these warrants, which were exercised at 0.02p, had come from. Following quite a bit of enquiry, it is still unclear. What is also unclear is where the responsibility may lie. So this is not an attack on Tern plc, or its Directors, or its Nomad. It is more a case of how the current regulatory set-up has once again failed investors. In this case it is in a small way, but next time?

WH Ireland: an open letter to Business Secretary Sajid Javid MP – will you help other pensioners who were mugged?

Published 1331 days ago

Over the past two weeks we have unearthed details of how senior WH Ireland (WHI)  Stockbroker John Molyneux (now suddenly retired) systematically stiffed those with discretionary accounts into duff penny stocks, usually corporate clients. So far one 78 year old who lost c£330,000 has been given compensation of £150,000 – but this may be the tip of the iceberg. So I have written to Business Secretary Sajid Javid asking him to intervene urgently.

With immediate effect. But if he and AIM listed WH Ireland (WHI) think this scandal is over they are mistaken. It is just beginning.

Yesterday I reported the story of an AIM CEO, who shared his first hand experience of the City corruption that enables the illegal forward selling of placements. Today I publish a second account, from a separate CEO, who also spoke on the condition of anonymity. Over the years, a number of companies on AIM have suffered illicit coordinated market attacks against their share prices. There has long been a suspicion of direct City complicity in these abusive assaults, involving regulated brokerage firms and market makers. Thanks to the vagaries of libel law and the City’s conspiracy of silence this is a story nearly impossible to report on, but the comments of CEO 2 serve as a warning to private investors in this utterly bent market.

AIM Regulation and the FCA’s inability or unwillingness to tackle rampant market abuse involving the illegal forward selling of placements on AIM has cost companies and shareholders hundreds of millions of pounds. The problem has become so widespread that it is widely seen as the cost of doing business in the lower reaches of the market. This is unacceptable and two current CEOs of AIM-listed businesses have spoken out about the parlous state of play.  Below I share the first testimonial, given on the condition of anonymity.

The FCA now has two reasons to call its colleagues Down Under, at the Australian Securities & Investment Commission (ASIC). First it might like to suggest that perhaps the Australian Women’s cricket team should represent the country in the next Ashes series. Based on recent form, they will certainly offer a greater challenge than their male compatriots. Second, after we pointed out the odd issue or two in Black Mountain Resources’ (BMZ) planned involvement in a so-called subsea salvage operation to retrieve >$1billion worth of lost war gold, perhaps the FCA might like to find out how serious the Australian authorities are in policing their small cap market and protecting British Private investors.

Quindell and regulatory failure: an open letter to Business Secretary Sajid Javid MP

Published 1353 days ago

This week’s disclosures by Quindell (QPP)  have shown conclusively that the gargantuan body of work which started back in April 2013 by ourselves and colleagues at ShareProphets was on the button. Along the way there were allegations of securities fraud, accounting fraud, VAT fraud, insider dealing, market abuse in what is simply a staggering litany of revelations. The evidence was passed to the FCA, AIM Regulation, the SFO and others in a series of submissions going back to April 2014. Yet the FCA and AIM Regulation utterly failed to act on the evidence handed over. The FCA took until June of this year to open an investigation – we rather suspect because of a me-too response, once it was known that the SFO was involved and that the Financial Reporting Council (FRC) had been looking at Quindell. AIM has yet to confirm any actions beyond a spot of belated flag-waving.

It will now be a source of major embarrassment both to the London Stock Exchange and the Financial Conduct Authority that a man with Levi’s background was able to become Executive Chairman of Sefton Resources (SER), without anyone picking up on his criminal past.

This morning, Metal Tiger (MTR) announced that its outstanding unsettled position in New World Oil & Gas (NEW) has been settled. Two months late, the failure of regulated market participants to fulfil their contractual terms has materially and detrimentally impacted the fortunes of hundreds, if not several thousand, private shareholders up and down the country. The shareholder action group could not reach the 10% threshold to requisition a general meeting directly because of this. While the London Stock Exchange failed miserably to enforce its own rulebooks, the FCA stood idly by and did nothing. This whole episode is dreadful for the reputation of AIM and calls into question how trustworthy or viable is this market?

Last chance for the London Stock Exchange to save the credibility of AIM ref. New World Oil & Gas

Published 1385 days ago

The New World Oil & Gas (NEW) forward selling fiasco has been a disaster for the credibility of AIM. So far, every single safeguard that is meant to be in place to protect private investors has failed. Predatory regulated City firms are on the cusp of making millions of pounds of profit from the chaos they have caused, while hundreds of private investors stand to suffer unacceptable and unjust losses. Had the authorities been doing their jobs properly in the first place none of this would have happened, but such is the paucity of regulatory oversight on AIM that the conditions have been primed for this shambolic situation for a long time. Nevertheless, the London Stock Exchange has one last chance to prove itself deserving of its licence for self-regulation of “the world’s most successful growth market”.

At the start of the New World Oil & Gas (NEW) forward selling fiasco Liam was cited as being one of the “innocent” forward sellers, who “accidentally” got himself embroiled in this mess.

Unfortunately for those who chose Liam as the forward sellers’ poster-boy, he has not behaved well. Posting under the username “Awkward Turtle” across social media, Liam is quite removed from being an “ordinary” private investor. Mr Turtle, as it is perhaps more appropriate to call Liam, is a small, yet revealing, part of something far more sinister and well coordinated.

A few minutes later the man phoned back to say that it was alright now, because he had shot the intruder. Within minutes his house was crawling with armed police and helicopters swirled the sky above. The burglar was arrested, unharmed. Afterwards, the police chief said to the man ‘I thought you said you had shot him’. The man replied ‘I thought you said there was nobody available to attend’.

Another day and another exclusive. Today we bring you the court filing made by disgraced Jimmyliar Ellerton as he tries to screw not $250,000 but $400,000 from the company. It will not make pleasant reading for Sefton (SER) shareholders but I am happy to appear as an expert witness for the company as the claims he makes are - as you would expect - packed full of lies.

Has New World Oil & Gas made a catastrophic error in its open offer?

Published 1407 days ago

By Friday afternoon it looked like New World Oil & Gas’ (NEW) board and its hapless regulated advisors had made yet another catastrophic error. Even by this group’s sheer rank incompetence over the last seven weeks, the latest blunder could be the worst. Not content to forward sell an unconfirmed placement, trample over shareholders’ lawful rights, ignore market rules, waste the company’s dwindling cash on an unjustifiable battle to save its advisors to the detriment of shareholders and try to force through an abysmally mispriced open offer, New World and its grossly inept advisors appear now to have broken the law.

Could the New World & Gas naked shorters really make £5million from the havoc they caused?

Published 1409 days ago

If New World Oil & Gas’ (NEW) board of directors gets its way and saves the skin of the naked shorters, then this group could stand to make at least £5million from this fiasco. As disgusting as this figure it, what is most troubling about it is that the group of naked shorters must include a number of regulated firms, who have acted incredibly recklessly and irresponsibly. Will the London Stock Exchange and Financial Conduct Authority stand by and allow this to happen?

Published 1415 days ago

About thirteen years ago, there was a tiddly company, quoted on AIM, called Room Service. Room Service was in serious trouble with its business and more than a few entirely reasonable people reckoned that not merely did it need to raise cash quickly, but there wasn't much point since it was a useless, shortly to be insolvent, business.

Bulletin Board Moron of the Week Contest #21 - In honour of market abuser @ChrisOil

Published 1430 days ago

On the very day that market abuser Chris Oil started selling 96 million shares in Sefton Resources (SER) he tweeted out that the stock was a buy to those who follow him. There were other ramps to follow as Oil cleared his position which were so blatant that the FCA is now investigating him. To be so blatant with your market abuse surely makes you a Bulletin Board Moron but perhaps you have spotted someone tweeting or posting something even more stupid. we suggest that boards for New World, Sefton and Worthington will once again throw up some examples.

Quite simply, the firm of Beaumont Cornish is not fit for purpose as a Nomad. It epitomises all that is wrong with the AIM market. The epic fiasco surrounding the New World Oil and Gas Placing may be the last straw but Beaumont Cornish has form going back years. Even with regard to just this one company there have been serial disasters, but there are more cases where Beaumont Cornish has failed in its duties as Nomad.

Environmental Recycling, formerly 3DM, still a POS 10 years after we battled last - time for round 2?

It sent me lawyer’s letter after lawyer’s letter as it tried to bully me into silence. Its cheerleaders, tipster Mike Walters and a City spiv called Johnny Townsend, encouraged all shareholders to report me to the FSA (the FCA of old). But in the end it was 3DM that was censured not once but twice by the FSA (2006 and 2008) for its serial lies. Today that company is called Environmental Recycling (ENRT) and it is still on AIM.

Aiden Earley – as Some Documents go Down (pro tem) the Killer Worthington/.Rangers document emerges

Published 1508 days ago

I am obliged under the interim injunction to remove all emails republished here from Craig Earley and all documents attached to those emails by 4.30 PM today and shall do so. I appeal the matter in the High Court Wednesday. However I have just been handed a document which is not attached to any email from Earley and appears to be the killer blow on the Worthington fraud and also casts a whole new light on Rangers and the Craig Whyte affair.  Since it arrived as a stand-alone it is NOT covered by the injunction. I shall be passing it onto the UKLA/FCA and Serious Fraud Office at once and imagine Rangers supporters may want the Scottish Police to see it as it implies that the current Rangers enquiry may need widening.

Insider dealing at e-Therapeutics – let’s see if AIM Regulation and the FCA are awake today

Published 1517 days ago

e-Therapeutics (ETX) has just issued this statement about the >35% jump in its share price in the last few days. In short, its board has admitted that it thinks price sensitive information has leaked from the company. “Big deal”, I hear our regular readers cry, “this is what we expect on AIM”. Sadly I have to agree with this sentiment, but this instance of seemingly clear-cut insider dealing has caught my eye. This is because, on this occasion, the London Stock Exchange’s AIM Regulation team and Financial Conduct Authority should have an easy time of catching the culprit or culprits. That is, if they are awake. It is, after all, Thursday afternoon.

Formal Request to FCA to investigate David Currie and Quindell for Market Abuse

Published 1518 days ago

On Monday 22 February the fraud Quindell (QPP) put out a statement that misled investors as to the status of its discussions with Slater & Gordon as to the sale of QLS. Slater and Gordon was forced to clarify the situation with its own statement. Shares soared on the Quenron RNS but retreated as S&G revealed the truth. As such this begs the real question as to whether David Currie, the chairman of Quenron and old pal of Mr Robert Simon Terry, is guilty of market abuse. I have written to the FCA today asking it to launch a formal enquiry.

Quindell, RTA, Rob Fielding and the missing £2 million, new document – Sacking needed now

On Christmas Day I revealed how Quindell (QPP) CEO Rob Fielding had made £2 million for selling a worthless company established by him in December 2013 to Quindell a month later. This should have been declared as a related party deal – since Fielding is a PDMR – but it was not but was instead rolled into a £30 million deal involving convicted Nigerian fraudster Andrew O’Dua. I now have a new document which makes this look even worse – why has Fielding not been fired and the Old Bill called in?

I’ve already scotched a few rumours and outright untruths about Tern plc (TERN) HERE, HERE HERE  and HERE and Tom Winnifrith has added to the opprobium several times, in particular HERE. But in the wake of a ‘clarification’ RNS which appeared to seek to set the record straight, Tern’s company chairman, Mr Angus Forrest, is STILL misleading his investors by giving an overstated impression of Tern’s beneficial ownership of Cryptosoft. I would suggest that this amounts to Market Abuse. It is a disgrace. The FCA and AIM Regulation need to act now to stop this. It is an affront to all the regulatory systems in place to make sure that the market is told the full truth!

Correction: IGas -STILL not in compliance with AIM Rule 17. Time for AIM Regulation to show its teeth

Yesterday I ran a piece saying that IGas (IGAS) was still not complying with DTR 3 of the Disclosure and Transparency Rules in the FCA rule book. It isn’t, but it turns out that DTR 3 does not apply to AIM companies, not that I managed to glean that from the DTR rules, although it can be inferred from the AIM Rules in the Guidance Notes. Mea Culpa, then and I apologise for the error. But AIM Rule 17 contains much the same requirements and so here is a corrected version of that piece. For the record, DTR 5 (rules governing disclosure of holdings greater that 3%) DOES apply to AIM Companies.

The Scandal of Tern: An Open Letter to the FCA and to AIM Regulation – I Bloody Told You So!

Published 1568 days ago

For over a year I have been providing the regulators with a chapter and verse dossier of breaches, lies, misrepresentations, incorrect filings, missing RNSs, market abuses, contract breaches and a whole lot more besides with regard to the collapse of Digital Learning Marketplace (DLM) in 2012. They were warned that it would all happen again unless they acted. They have not. And so, in the wake of an utter scandal at Tern (TERN) which, one way or another, involves almost ALL of the protagonists from the DLM scandal I have written an open letter to the chief executive of the  FCA, Mr Martin Wheatley and to the head of AIM, Mr Marcus Stuttard. The latter, laughably, describes himself as The Sheriff of AIM. I think we all know that he is an imposter and who is the real Sheriff.

CROOKS: Rob Terry and Laurence Moorse BOTH let margin calls lapse – sacrifice Quenron shares & trouser £7 million.

First thing today we heard that hapless (soon to be ex) Quindell (QPP) finance director and insider dealer Laurence Moorse had received a margin call under his Equities First Holdings LLC shoddy share sale/loan deal. Larry did not met the margin so officially said goodbye to 20,000 shares. After hours it was revealed that fraudster in chief Rob Terry had made the same call so waving goodbye to 8.85 million shares.

Letter to the FCA: Robert Fielding CEO of Quindell is Guilty of Insider Dealing – please investigate

Published 1610 days ago

We already know that the FCA is investigating Rob Terry, Steve Scott and Laurence Moorse of Quindell for insider dealing – they are clearly guilty in that they sold millions of quid’s worth of shares knowing that join broker Canaccord had quit but without letting the market know that. But now I also accuse CEO Robert Fielding of insider dealing and wonder if this is why Canaccord quit on October 21st. I have written to the FCA (and cc’d in AIM Regulation as well as the chumps round at Cenkos) asking that the FCA widens the Quindell insider dealing enquiry to include Fielding.

Open letter to the FCA; investigate Rob Terry, Steve Scott and Laurence Moorse for market abuse

Published 1617 days ago

I’d love to believe that this morning’s statement from the disastrous, discredited and detestable Rob Terry is the last we will hear from this awful man in an RNS. Sadly I fear it won’t be, unless the authorities launch an immediate investigation into Quindell (QPP). Prior to listing Quindell, Terry’s record at the Innovation Group was there for all to see and red flag warning signs were waving long before Tom embarked on his valiant campaign. Once again, the “world’s most successful growth market” has fallen woefully short in offering British private investors any sort of genuine protection. The brokers, Nomad, PR firms and corporate advisors have all been paid handsomely, while thousands of ordinary people have watched their life savings evaporate. This cannot be acceptable. There are dozens of reasons why the FCA and AIM Regulation should investigate Quindell, but let’s begin with a first complaint of market abuse to the FCA.

But then I turn to the negligence of Nomads, Cenkos, Canaccord and Hanson Westhouse and why that should be career ending for some. And the to why Equities First and its employees should be struck off by the FCA.  This scandal is enormous and for many involved professional disgrace is the least of their worries.

ShareProphets Exclusive: Bucket shop market abusers find new way to steal from private investors

Published 1641 days ago

Private investors on AIM are used to watching millions wiped off the value of their investments by the illegal forward selling of placements, followed by gratuitous discounts forced by brokers. Not content with the scale of their illegitimate profits, it now looks like the market abusers have struck upon a new method of stealing from shareholders. It’s come to our attention that certain bucket shops are demanding a sizeable percentage of brokers’ fees for participation in placements. Sadly, we have been made aware of at least one broker, which is playing along with this outrage. This helps explain the mystery of the increasing number of stocks we’ve watched trade below placement prices, immediately after the completion of fundraisings. Even by the abysmal standards of AIM’s cesspit, this revelation is a new low.

This morning I have written to the FCA asking it to investigate whether the allegations I made on 13th October 2014 regarding Quindell PLC (QPP) constitute market abuse. The allegations are the most serious I can make, that Quenron has committed wholesale accounting fraud and has lied to investors via RNS.  If the allegations are not true I have committed market abuse. As it happens they are 100% verifiable and I have not seen one person show why they are not. That is because they are verifiably true.

Reader Comment of the day: TurboMuncher on the Quindell cash Crisis

Published 1651 days ago

It is abundantly clear that Quenron (QPP) now faces a cash crisis of monumental proportions. I am sure that the FCA is now monitoring its Regulatory capital position with extreme concern. And if you want to know what happens when this becomes an issue have a look at Daniel Stewart HERE. I flagged up earlier today, one way in which Quenron is hiding this time bomb from investors – by delaying salary payments HERE – but the other obvious way is by not paying its bills, something you would not be able to gauge from the cobblers in its trading statement of Monday. But poster TurboMubcher has the data and puts it into context for you in an excellent post:

On an almost daily basis I am alerted to a post which has been made by someone who really is truly bonkers. I was entertained to see some cretin on ADVFN discuss the “TW Red Flags” on Quenron – apparently having a strong opinion which is not buy is deemed a Red Flag.  However, The Bulletin Board Moron of the Day is “Mr Palmer” on the LSE Board. On a day when another Quindell nutter who boasted on twitter of having a "hitlist" which included myself and Dan Levi has been reported to the Old Bill (not by me as I regard the Met as useless), Mr Palmer takes centre stage.

Apparently at 31p shares in Naibu now trade on a 2015 and 2015 PE of c0.7. Any stock trading on such a rating is either the cheapest stock on this planet or an outright fraud, a Norfolk. Naibu is a fraud. My target price is 0p and this stock will lose its Aim listing soon. It could be very soon. If Daniel Stewart, nomad and broker to this POS – and the firm that listed Quenron – had any integrity it would resign at once as Nomad and broker. As such I ask two questions of Daniel Cesspit.

Open letter to the FCA; please investigate Kibo Mining’s placement of March 31st

Published 1733 days ago

On March 31st this year, Kibo Mining (KIBO) raised £750,000 at 2.5p. The price of this placement was horrific, at a 42% discount to the previous close’s 65 day Moving Average (65MA) closing price. On March 28th Kibo’s 65MA closing price was 4.28p. In percentage terms, this was one of the worst recent cases of placement value destruction I have come across and there was a very strong suggestion that Kibo, and its shareholders, had been victim of blatant (and sloppy) forward selling. Forward selling is the term used to describe a version of market abuse whereby certain parties, armed with confidential “inside” information, use this to profit, by going heavily short a stock, which they know is trying to raise money. We see possible cases of forward selling of placements regularly on AIM and there is an impression that that the regulator is doing little to nothing about it. Below I have drafted an open letter to the FCA to ask them to investigate this matter.

Why, at ShareProphets, do we call London’s Alternative Investment Market a cesspit? Because it’s too easy to cheat. If you are of a certain corrupt mindset, then AIM is the perfect breeding ground for you to hatch all manner of devious plans to con people out of their money. You can plot your nefarious schemes, safe in the knowledge that absolutely nothing will be done to stop you. In any other walk of life theft is a criminal offense. However, thanks to the veneer of respectability that the London Stock Exchange affords to AIM, this inconvenient social convention is not only ignored it is trampled all over. Wearing a white collar, it seems, grants you immunity from prosecution.
