I am still livid about matters concerning my wife's place of work and with it showing no sign of movement I have today discussed the matter with my lawyers. Bah fucking humbug, there is no seasonal goodwill from me in 2017. In this podcast I discuss Inspirit (INSP) at length also Falanx (FLX) - shares in which we own - Low & Bonar (LWB), Minoan (MIN) and Gotech (GOT), formerly Guscio.

Luke Johnson was bang on the money at the weekend in his description of the current market madness. In that vein I discuss Milestone (MSG), On Line (ONL), Vela (VELA) and Tizania (TLS). This will end in tears. I take my hat off to Luke Johnson after today's results from Patisserie Valerie (CAKE) but still have two major concerns, a three if you include valuation. I look at Andalas (ADL) and its new death spiral funding and also cover Kefi (KEFI) and Falanx (FLX)

Sadly illness is still rife in this house so for this Thursday it is no coffee for me with the fit young mums. At least I shall be in Greece in five days time and that must be restorative to my health. In this podcast I start by looking back on UK Oil & Gas (UKOG) and its death spiral. I explain exactly how it works. Then a few further thoughts on Falanx (FLX) and why I am not selling our shares at this price. Then I look at Alexander Mining (AXM), another mega spoof from Clem Chambers, this time at ADVFN (AFN), at "Nomates" disaster RM2 (RM2)Fishing Republic (FISH) - a good zero bet - and at Regal Petroleum (RPT) which seems to be in a spot of bother in Ukraine.

I am sorry that bearcast is late. I am just back from lecturing the snowflake sociology students of the Mrs. I think I may have intruded on their safe space with some challenging thoughts in my talk "Lies, damned lies, public sector underpay and other myths." I hope to have a recording and the slides up here later this week. Pro tem I offer up some thoughts on Cogenpower (CGP) - to become Monreal PLC - Paternoster Resources (PRS) - now co run by Amanda Van Dyke, formerly of this Parish but now on the dark side, Falanx (FLX), Interquest (ITQ) and Conroy Gold & Natural Resources (CGNR)

Waseem has a few wise things to say and I note why I always listen to him even if he is being beastly about a stock I own. Do you really benefit from closing your ears to a contrary viewpoint from a guy who is more often right than wrong? No. Elsewhere I look at how gravity cannot be defied forever and Inspirit (INSP), Avanti Comms (AVN), I3 Energy (I3E). Then I answer a question on Falanx (FLX) where I am long and very happy as results loom, about Snoozebox (ZZZ) which has gone tits up (Sheriff 1, Cynical Bear 0) and finally what to make of the Persimmon (PSN) statement.

Truly some of my fellow shareholders in Falanx (FLX) are some of the dumbest folks on earth. I refer you to yesterday's bonus bearcast which will be a theme for the next 18 months. It relates to Topps Tiles (TPT) where the bad news is largely priced in. But I think I have a £1billion stock that it could take to zero. I discuss Xtract Resources (XTR) and follow up analysis to this article on 88 Energy (88E) post a company chat.

I start with a look at the weekend's events in what could be, and should be, the Catalan Republic. It shows our political leaders, but especially those in the EU, in the worst possible light. If the Catalans do go it alone it has massive implications for the Euro which I discuss. Then it is on to PCG Entertainment (PCGE) where I declare an interest but try to be objective in a detailed analysis. There is a similar biopsy but it could soon be an autopsy on Starcom (STAR). I also cover Falanx (FLX) "the flea jumping" - a stock we own - and comment on Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO). I have remembered what I forgot at the end and will cover it tomorrow.

First the disclosures. No 1. We own stacks of these shares (bought at 4p) but will not sell until the shares are north of 10p. No 2. Hotstockrockets tipped them at a 4.25p offer and has them as a STRONG HOLD -I think certain colleagues are too cautious. Now over to cybersecurity play Falanx (FLX) which has recently served up a cracking trading statement and a cute little acquisition. Falanx says that in the run up to its half year end (30 September) it has won "significant new sales contracts with recurring revenue... Remains on course for operational breakeven this financial year." It repeats that "business on track to reach breakeven during the financial year with sufficient cash to see all current operations through to profitability."

Shares in Falanx (FLX) have slipped and slipped most of the summer. The reality is - as we noted with Optibiotix (OPTI) the other day - that sensible folks are sitting on beaches and this means that there is a bit of an absence of buyers. Well let us clarify there is certainly an absence of buyers for small cap stocks where there has been no news and Falanx fits that bill.

Four times in the past three or four months we have advised our readers to bank big gains on shares we tipped - the one before the one before last was a 77% profit (offer to bid ) in just 12 days. But though we target quick gains, most tips take rather longer to make money for our readers. take Falanx (FLX) we tipped it last year at a 4.75p offer - it is a solid cashed up fast growing cyber security play. We like it so much we own a few shares too but won't be selling any of them till after our readers bank big gains. The shares are now 9.5p -10p! That is a potential 100% offer to bid profit!

The shares were 4.25p offer when we tipped this but they are still cheap. Naturally our paying customers got in at lower levels that you can today. However the thesis stands. Falanx (FLX) has not covered itself in glory since its AIM admission just under three years ago. There have been a couple of profits warnings and, just over a year ago, there was a change of strategy, a shift from profitable but dull traditional security to dealing with cyber security. It sounded sexy but it meant huge losses and the shares have slumped to 4p-4.5p. But they are now a buy. Why?
