Hargreaves Lansdown gives Neil Woodford another Blow Job as its clients lose even more money

Published 13 days ago

As this morning’s shock revelations about Neil Woodford’s greed and reward for abject failure start to sink in, I imagine that many investors in his funds will be feeling a deep sense of disgust and regret. Perhaps they will blame those who advised them to invest and who, as the performance has gone from bad to worse, to even worse, have told them to hang on or average down.  Perhaps the biggest cheerleader has been Hargreaves Lansdown which has just published another blow job type piece on Woodford.

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

Published 29 days ago

‘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.

Neil Woodford’s Three Part Christmas Carol: Chapter One

Published 30 days ago

‘Twas the night before Christmas and the man who liked to be known as Britain’s Buffett paced up and down his bedroom, deep in thought. Attending the local carol service at the Church nearest his Country Estate, Neil Woodford felt that he had so much in common with the wise men but like the Shepherds he was this evening of a troubled mind.

Dunelm - am I at danger of buying some frilly curtains? (and more)

Published 103 days ago

Exciting general times in the market...and I am thinking about my assertion a month or two ago in my write-up on Dunelm (DNLM) that I would buy some frilly curtains from my local store if the shares pushed up to the six quid odd level I mused upon...

Sefton Resources – Jimmyliar Ellerton shares confiscated, yours may be forcibly bought back

Published 139 days ago

And you thought the pantomime was over… now unlisted and registered in the BVI the latest developments at Sefton Resources (SER) are, predictably amusing. When Sefton was booted off AIM it had 4.8 billion shares in issue. Until the other day it appears to have had almost 9 billion pieces of confetti in issue. But that is set to change.

Interactive Investor ( iii) - We are not the only bastards in the stockbroker village

Published 560 days ago

iii, aka Interactive Investor, do not seem happy at being called total bastards for changing the terms for holding client money so that clients, that is mug punters like you and I, get more risk and iii gets more money. It says that this is not the objective of what is going on any anyhow other stockbrokers such as Hargreaves Lansdown and the Share Centre are doing the same thing. As such I am happy to clarify " I apologise for saying that iii are total bastards. I meant to say that iii like many other stockbrokers including Hargreaves Lansdown and the Share Centre are total bastards." The iii spokesman is keen that I put this all in context.  iii's comments are in bold, my translation service is below.

Fisking The Times & Standard Life as AIM is lambasted

Published 585 days ago

The Times yesterday ran an article "Investors take aim at LSE’s mistrusted upstart - Stock exchange defends Alternative Investment Market but its critics are losing patience", which it painted as a major attack on AIM. In fact it appears to have found one new critic - Standard Life - which, having done its conkers on Fusionex (FXI) because its fund managers knew better than our writers here who issued repeated warnings, now seems to think AIM has a problem. On which fucking planet has Standard Life been for the past ten years?

The starting gun on the next general election has been fired so unexpectedly that the report has been felt throughout the country. But the first tangible response was a swift rally in the pound, putting pressure on the UK stock market.

Cloudtag - has dodgy Andrew Regan's Corvus Capital dumped its shares?

Published 799 days ago

Andrew Regan, the man who shot to fame as he was caught at a Motorway Service Station trying to buy stolen documents relating to a bid for the Co-Op, was also the man who brought Cloudtag (CTAG) to market with his Corvus Capital vehicle owning 28.8 million shares (just under 20% of the equity) on admission. But...

AIM: the Data that shows its a disaster

Published 944 days ago

AIM is now 21 and new, hard, data from Hargreaves Lansdown shows that, whatever the London Stock Exchange says, it has been a disaster. Over that time the AIM Index has fallen by 30%. By contrast - with dividends included - the FTSE Small Cap Index is up by 220%. Ouch.

Are you a customer of Barclays Stockbrokers? Has it disposed of your shares too without your permission?

Published 1301 days ago

Evidence started to emerge four weeks ago of a major problem with the nominee service used by clients of Barclays Stockbrokers, Barclayshare Nominees. There is now a strong suggestion that Barclayshare Nominees and Barclays Stockbrokers have disposed of clients’ physical stock without their permission. This is a shocking turn of events in the New World Oil & Gas (NEW) forward selling fiasco and points to an even graver flaw in the mechanics of the London Stock Exchange’s Alternative Investment Market. Something like this should just not be possible, but the numbers appear telling.

Hargreaves Lansdown jumps into bed with the free speech deniers & black balls ShareProphets

Published 1447 days ago

You would have thought that a firm of stockbrokers would want to see a critical press exposing fraud on AIM so that its clients do not lose money. But it appears that Hargreaves Lansdown (HL.) has given into the Bulletin Board jihadists and has joined other companies such as Tesco in refusing to advertise here. The same folk who have sent me death threats, smeared me and the restaurant because of what I write (fraud exposes) are trying to get this website closed down.

Buy blinkx

Published 1659 days ago

OK so I’m a contrarian and as such I am now long blinkx (BLNX). I bought three times on the day of the crash in my mad punting account. (I have this to remind myself of the pain of self-immolation in trading, so I don’t lose track of my customers.) I bought at 40p, 33p and 29p averaging out at 34.1p. Basically, this is where it sits right now. I think it is going up.
