Hat Off to Roger Lawson - he is bang on the money re Barclays Stockbrokers debacle

Published 70 days ago

Old Lawson may still be pursuing a ridiculous claim against me for libel, he noted this week that he had another meeting with his lawyers, but credit where credit is due, the old fool has nailed the shambles last week at Barclays (BARC) stockbrokers perfectly. And in a posting on the ShareSoc blog he gives advice on what to do if you have been jerked around.  This is an example of the good work he can do when he is not distracted by falling in love with companies such as Globo. Over to Lawson:

Reader Comment of the day - Roger Lawson has new smelly "friends" but needs a lesson in stockmarket basics

Published 85 days ago

It seems that Roger Lawson of Globo and blinkx fame is not impressed by my suggestion that he is a bull of Purplebricks (PURP) and that it might therefore somehow be jinxed. But in a couple of after the pubs opened O'clock comments here last night he focusses the mind on what a select group he himself belongs to.

Telit bombshell Part 2 - its Distributors are oft on a par with those of Globo

Published 98 days ago

Earlier today I published a bombshell that demonstrated that Telit (TCM) was Globo v2 - that is to say a FRAUD heading for zero in short order.. One of the points that caused Globo to unravel within days were its bogus distributors. I covered that in some detail in Part 1 of this series but here in  part 2 I offer up some graphics to make my point. Distributors account for only 30% of claimed sales but if they are bogus then is anything genuine? It is game over for Telit, the Fat Lady is getting ready... Enjoy what follows...

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast Special - the culture of corporate lying as I say GOTCHA to Telit

Published 98 days ago

Following today's bombshell there can be no doubt that Telit Communications (TCM) is toast. Companies that lie and deceive so industrially in the way I demonstrated earlier HERE will always end in tears.  In this podcast I look at the culture of corporate lying and wrongdoing and what it means for you as an investor. I look at rent boys at BP then at Quindell (QPP), Globo (GBO) and of course, in the main, at Telit

Telit Communications – Mr Fat Katz unusual remuneration arrangements

Published 98 days ago

After today's complete bombshell which shows that Telit (TCM) is a Globo style fraud and thus utterly worthless what follows may be a tad academic. But, none the less, it is yet another Red Flag which we all should have noticed earlier. Reading through the 2016 annual report of Telit it is apparent that Mr Fat Katz, sorry Mr Oozi Cats, had two unusual remuneration arrangements. 

Emails sent to AIM Regulation & Nomad Finncap after today's Telit bombshell - this must be suspended 7 AM Monday

Published 98 days ago

This is becoming Globo v2 at a an alarming rate. Today's bombshell dossier on Telit Communications (TCM) nails it as a slam dunk ZERO beyond all doubt. The only way that the shares do not completely crater in the morning is if they are suspended first. And that is exactly what should happen. As such I sent a couple of emails last night. One to tthe head of the Oxymorons Marcus Stuttard and his clueless colleagues, the Keystone Cops at AIM Regulation and the other to the folks at Nomad FinnCap from CEO Sam Smith via head of Corporate Finance Stuart Andrews down to analyst Lorne Daniel with a minor jackal in Corporate Finaance also included in case Andrews is too busy with his polo ponies to read emails on a Sunday. Enjoy!

Table of shorted AIM shares - week to 11/08/2017

Published 99 days ago

From the FCA's spreadsheet of short positions required to be disclosed to it, the following shows the shorted AIM shares with positions from 2016 and thus far in 2017 (by net short position %) - and if this position has increased (red), reduced (green) or remained unchanged (black) since last week (see HERE) - you may note a sharp increase in the Telit (TCM) short position even though the shares have collapsed. The bear community smells a zero here, this is Globo all over again - note Tom Winnifrith's smoking gun of earlier & ignore it at your peril 

Telit - no news = bad news?

The poodles of the PR community, that is to say the deadwood press, were briefed that Telit Communications (TCM) would by Friday have completed the review of whether is CEO was charged with fraud in 1991 but did a runner pre trial. Telit did not deny the allegations we broke as companies invariably do, at first, when exposed. Anyhow it is now Friday.

Tom Winnifrith Bonus Bearcast on Telit - calling Uzi's next move: this feels like Globo Mk2, here's why

Published 102 days ago

Okay so the Sheriff of AIM has got his man. Uzi/Oozi Katz/Cats has gone "temporarily" (my arse, again) from Telit Communications (TCM). So what happens next? I comment about what was NOT said in today's release, try to second guess Uzi (that is the real one not a bogus ballet dancer/statistician/award winning chef) as to his next move. Then I discuss the underlying business and explain why, to me, it has all the makings of a Globo, not a Quindell,. and why that means that its share price collapsersoonie could be sooner than you think, if banksters HSBC are anywhere close to being on the ball. Enjoy.

Is the post Letts bounce in blur justified? Nope - at last Roger Lawson is 100% right

On Monday evening we were treated to the shock news that blur (BLUR) founder Phil Letts had been given the order of the boot just 18 days after his ghastly Mrs Kara Cardinale was also handed a P45 and a black bin liner. While the two of them relax at their luxury Devon Estate, shares in blur have enjoyed a relief rally to 4.75p ( now just 98.5% off their peak) but is that share price spike justified. Like hell it is.

BREAKING: Now Roger Lawson & his lawyers lie to Audioboom to get another bearcast taken down

Published 113 days ago

Are there no depths to which disgraced share ramper Roger Lawson of ShareSoc, Globo and blinkx infamy will not go in order to gag a free press? The latest trick from shamed ramper and his fascist lawyers Keystone is to lie to Audioboom. Ramper's lawyers have again been in touch with Audioboom about a post. You will remember that two days a go they argued that a bearcast from July 2017 was libellous and Audioboom did not have the balls to question this and just removed it - full details on thst shameful day plus the bearcast in question now hosted on another platform are HERE. Buoyed by the fact that Audioboom are just plain pussies, the bully boy lawyers and Lawson have tried it on again. So late last night a poltroon called Alex from Audioboom wrote to me:

Today's the day that African Potash gets slung from the NEX markets or has the rules bent for them, so in normal circumstances it would sponsor this week's contest. But there is an even better sponsor, step forward disgraced share ramper Roger Lawson of ShareSoc infamy who will donate some of the Globo shares he owns as a prize.  Natch, Ramper Lawson sold most of his Globo shares before telling readers to sell, but he still has some left and even offered to help the management take the company forward.

Paternoster Resources - the Elephant in the valuation room

Yesterday I explained at length HERE why I would not touch Paternoster Resources (PRS) shares with a bargepole - they look cheap in relation to asset value but are not.

When shamed AIM casino posterboy Mercantile Ports & Logistics (MPL) moves from being a member of the minus 98% club in which it currently sits to being a member of the minus 100% club, I want it known that Nomad Cenkos has been fully aware of massive issues all along and has done nothing other than bank obscene fees. As such we have run a series of letters from a big shareholder to Amber Wood, head of Corporate Governance at Lagos Securities, HERE and HERE and HERE. Now for letter four which puts fragrant Amber and Lagos, Nomad to the Quindell (QPP) fraud as well, on notice for when the final wipeout occurs that they will be held accountable.

And so the battle lines are drawn at Magnolia Petroleum (MAGP), the dash guzzling worthless AIM POS founded by Gavin Burnell of Globo infamy. On the one hand there is an overpaid incumbent board led by less than lovely Rita Whittingham and backed by an overpaid army of crony capitalist advisers. On the other side are Even Ainsworth from Nostra Terra (NTOG) and Zac "The Knife" Philips, the City's top oil analyst. Magnolia has accepted that a GM request to outs less than lovely Rita and appoint Ainsorth and The Knife is valid. So what is the voting maths?

That was why he was able to dismiss so easily criticism from myself, Ben Edelman and Paul Scott about blinkx (BLNX) and Globo (GBO), two of his big holdings. And when we criticised again he smeared and slandered us without declaring his personal holding.

Wise words from the man who tipped Globo & Blinkx - Ramper Lawson

Published 305 days ago

Who has just written "I said in our last newsletter that my portfolio performance was disappointing in 2016, but I am feeling a lot better now as I made a reasonable profit and better than most of the "expert" tipsters it seems. Perhaps the moral to be drawn from this news is that it might be best to do your own research rather than pick up tips from others and rely on them for investment purposes. Reading the national press or other publications might be useful for picking up ideas, but you should consider any tips with an appropriate amount of scepticism until you have researched the companies and fully understood what they do and their financial structure. In other words, don't simply believe what you read.

And I ask why Cloudtag (CTAG) morons want to send cash to a convicted criminal who appears to be living in a £3 million house despite BOTH he and his wife going through bankruptcty. It's all very odd.

In the days before we exposed it HERE and got its shares suspended and the firm put into administration, CEO Costis Papadimitrakopoulos sold millions of pounds worth of Globo shares knowing what was to emerge as snot gobbler Dan McCrum of the FT had tipped him off without actually having the balls to break the story. So Costis is clearly a crook but crime does not pay does it? Well it seems that for AIM CEOs like Costis it does.

Marcus Stuttard of AIM Regulation: African Potash admits to fraud - will you please act?

Published 443 days ago

I have today published the lawyers letter sent by Memery Crystal - lawyers to Globo - but which also acts for the fraudsters African Potash (AFPO) demanding money from me, trying to gag me but also admitting that its client has committed securities fraud. The letter also implies that Nomad Cantor Fitzgerald approved releases (and lack of releases) which meant investors in a placing on 12 January 2016 were utterly deceived as to the trading position at Potash. 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? I have written to the man who basks in the title "The Sheriff of AIM" as you can see below.

The FRAUD African Potash: bailout placing & loan deferral delays bankruptcy till January

Aha, let's tell the morons that we are going to take legal action against Tom Winnifrith for pointing out that we are lying bastards who commit fraud. That will allow us to get a rescue placing away but we don't want to go for libel because disclosure would destroy us. Telling spivs you are going to sue the Sheriff of AIM allowed the fraudsters at Sefton to issue more confetti several times and African Potash (AFPO) is using the same playbook. But death for this worthless POS is merely postponed by a few months.

Still no lawyers letter from Memery Crystal acting for fraudsters African Potash so here's the one they sent us on behalf of fraudsters Globo - it is a scream

Published 445 days ago

As you are aware African Potash (AFPO) has told the morons that it is consulting its lawyers about taking action against me for daring to point out that the the company were liars who had committed Securities fraud. Potash's lawyers are Memery Crystal whose senior partner was aware of at least one Potash fraud as he was cc'd in on the emails ahead of the RNS. That, as I explained HERE, is why Nick Davis should quit the AIM Advisory board now. So far Memery Crystal, has not sent me a letter on behalf of the Potash fraudsters but it did sent me one one behalf of the fraudsters at Globo. It really is fascistic, pompous and shows that Memery Crystal will act for the scum of the earth as long as it gets paid. 

Why AIM’s woeful regulatory environment makes it a hotbed of FRAUD.

It seems that we at ShareProphets are not the only people concerned about the amount of fraud we see on the London markets – and, in particular, on AIM. We have seen the horror of the biggest stockmarket fraud for thirty years (Quindell, QPP – now Watchstone, WTC) unfold before our very eyes and yet as Tom Winnifrith doggedly banged on the doors of AIM Regulation and the FCA they did nothing and the frauds continued unchecked for far longer than they otherwise would.

A regulatory rant - the FCA is not fit for purpose

When Gotham City published its now infamous report on Quindell, a copy of which was sent to the FCA and the Serious Fraud Office, it was OVER a year later that any action was taken and this despite a high profile campaign against it by Tom Winnifrith Shareprophets and, to a far lesser extent, Dan McCrum at the FT which, in the case of Shareprophets, included many specific allegations of fraud and open exhortations to the FCA to do something about it.

Tom Winnifrith BearCast - the FCA has been investigating me for the past few weeks - poltroons

In this podcast I relay to you news of an investigation which has now closed into me and others relating to InternetQ. It shows the sinister powers the FCA has and uses but also the crass stupidity of the regulators in pursuing such an obviously flawed investigation. Not only was I 100% innocent but I was demonstrably so. What makes the fact that these fascist poltroons go after an investigative journalist who has busted so many frauds is that the FCA has not gone after the frauds despite me handing it evidence on a plate. I refer to Quindell, 3DM ( where in its FSA days it actually helped protect the fraudsters), Globo and Sefton This has meant that investors have been screwed as a result. The FCA is not fit for purpose

Then a few weeks ago we exposed Globo as a fraud HERE whiler the rest of the gutless British press - notably snot-gobbler Dan McCrum at the FT -  sat silent until the shares were suspended. Today I thought I'd pop along to see what was left. The answer, as you can see from the photos below, is nothing.

Sometimes it is simply that the level of audit which would have been required to unearth the fraud (or, cough, errors) would simply have been too expensive to perform and not necessarily required by the regulators.

We hope this will enhance your understanding of the stock-lending deal he did in order to offload ten million shares. That the deal was not declared at the time stinks, but one has to understand how his and the lender's 'interests' in the shares were affected in order to comprehend how the regulators view these types of arrangement. We sincerely hope that this helps.....

As predicted HERE in the wake of after-hours interims from the company on Wednesday, shareholders in AIM cesspit dog Ultima Networks (UTN) plc are to be treated to a placing. Gotcha. In fact it is rather more than that, as an RNS issued yesterday (mercifully, at the usual 7am) details proposals to be put to an EGM under which the business is to be disposed of into a private company and the plc restructured into an investing company – the last refuge for failed sub-scale ventures on the Casino.

And so to win a bottle of wine this week you can post the most insane comment from any thread on any Bulletin Board below.

Globo (GBO), Quindell (QPP) - ref Himex or perhaps blinkx (BLNX)? Again! To understand how to make money from tech stocks listen to the maestros in the video below from UK Investor Show, notably Vin Murria, the Queen of tech who is on top (outspoken) form.

Globo – Uh, Oh….

It is no secret that I am not a fan of Globo (GBO) – perhaps I shall have to treck up from the Mani to Athens for another visit. I sense things are getting exciting. For the bears.

ShareProphets (Prophets of Doom), REM, Bulletin Board Morons – a FINAL word

Published 1221 days ago

On twitter, on various bulletin boards and on the comments section here on ShareProphets  and elsewhere we have come under sustained attack for 24 hours – let me set the record straight. And then I can get back to dealing with the snakes, rats and bats that infest my home for the summer in Greece.

Evil Knievil, Lucian Miers, Matt Earl and Tom Winnifrith – the top 10 stocks in London to short for summer

Published 1228 days ago

Anyone who was at UK Investor 2014 knows that the Bears session (HERE) saw some great calls. And so ahead of a long sweaty summer I asked Evil Knievil, Matt Earl (The Dark Destroyer) and Lucian Miers for their top 5 shorts of the summer and for good measure I add in my own. Between us we have thus compiled the top ten stocks to short in London!

Quindell the most likely company to sue Tom Winnifrith: Reader Poll and Tom’s Response

Published 1231 days ago

Last week we asked readers to vote on which company they thought would be next to send a lawyer’s letter to myself, Tom Winnifrith. The readers have spoken clearly - exactly half of those taking part think that Quindell (QPP) is about to piss its shareholders cash away with a legal threat.

You may not like short sellers but the bear raider panel at the UK Investor Show 2014 called things right on a range of stocks from blinkx (BLNX), to Globo (GBO), to Quindell (QPP) as you can see in the video below. Evil Knievil, Lucian Miers and Matt Earl (The Dark Destroyer) have all promised to return for another main stage masterclass at UK Investor Show 2015 on April 18.

Reader Poll: Which AIM Cesspit Company will send a lawyer’s letter to Tom Winnifrith Next?

Published 1240 days ago

I have not had a lawyer’s letter for more than two weeks. I can only conclude either that the greedy fat cat City Bully Boy lawyers are all sipping corporate champagne at Wimbledon or that I am slipping and being too much of a nice guy for my own good. It is only a matter of time and so I invite readers to guess who will send me my next lawyer’s letter. And, to help you select which scumbags are likely to win, I offer a handy form guide.

blinkx – I disagree with Gary as it is a sell & my top three stocks to short on AIM

Published 1243 days ago

Yesterday my colleague Gary Newman argued HERE that at 66p shares in blinkx (BLNX) were a buy. I respect Gary but disagree with him, this company is not worth £264 million. The shares remain a sell.

Globo Trading Statement – Meaningless Gibberish

Published 1247 days ago

Globo (GBO) this week issued a trading statement which is the usual gibberish from a company driven by issuing non news to support a share price which I fundamental terms is unjustifiable.

Twitter Moron of the Week –Mike Bowen a bull of Quindell, Coms & blinkx

Published 1254 days ago

You could not make it up. Some folks cannot but help pick overpriced glamour stocks which crash. Meet Mike Bowen who tweets as @lookatbowen and who first spring to my attention as he tweeted @tomwinnifrith the only person certifiable is you Tom  Oooh er missus. I guess he owns Quindell (QPP) then.

Gulf Keystone tanking as Mosul falls to Al – Qaeda: a dreadful day for the Bulletin Board Morons

Published 1256 days ago

The two stocks most beloved by Bulletin Board Morons are Quindell (QPP) and Gulf Keystone (GKP). I have got death threats, shit in the post, a hate campaign against my restaurant for questioning both companies. I am not gloating about the losses suffered by “innocent shareholders.” But the losses suffered by those who have tormented me trying to gag free speech and legitimate questioning cause me no sorrow. Quindell shares have plunged today as it failed to move from the AIM Cesspit to the main market (see HERE) but Gulf is also down by 12.5% at 79.3p: blame leverage and Al Qaeda.

Globo: FFS Speak Real English as you announce total non news – smell the panic

Published 1259 days ago

I have noted before, in relation to Globo (GBO ) as it happens (HERE) how companies that are starting to panic about a dismal share price or about investors are asking pesky awkward questions about profits to cash conversion and other investment fundamentals react by issuing total non-news. Today’s effort from Globo (GBO) is a stormer in that respect. It is prize winning non news with a dose of unintelligible corporate bullshit thrown in. In fact it is such classic MBA style bullshit that I will run a competition on the back of it.

Ducat Ventures – a 56% Move and Suspension, hmmmmmm

Last week shares in tiny investment company Ducat Ventures (DUC) were suspended after jumping 56% in just a couple of hours. Heck this is AIM so surely nothing could be a bit iffy here…

You MUST sack Tom Winnifrith NOW! The threats and blackmail used by those who oppose free speech

Published 1286 days ago

I have noted before how for daring to dissent from a cosy consensus that shares in certain stocks but notably Quindell, Globo and blinkx, are screaming buys I have received death threats, stalking and shit in the post and on the internet. But now those who seek to deny free speech have started an economic war and are actively seeking to ensure that I face economic ruin. Such folks will fail because most people believe in free speech but to see what they are up to read on.

Buy Globo (GBO): Up, Up And Away

Published 1634 days ago

As most of us are probably aware, apart from holidaying in Ibiza, there are few things more exciting in life than the world of international mobile solutions, the sphere in which Globo occupies. Last month the software as a service provider reported that annual revenues were up over a quarter on sales of its smart phone technology. But the real interest at the moment may come from the latest price action where it would appear that a break out is imminent.

Buy Globo: Initial 2013 Momentum Maintained

Published 1676 days ago

It is perhaps rather unfortunate that after more than a decade exposed to the language, my knowledge of Spanish is basic to say the least. However, I do know that Globo (GBO) means balloon, and that as far as the technicals of the international mobile solutions and software are concerned the stock is set to float higher for the AIM 100 listed technology play.
