Five slam-dunk sells for 2019 – March edition, as Walcom struggles on (just)

Published 61 days ago

Last month one of the five had its denouement as AIM-listed Haydale (HAYD) had an emergency bailout  - as long predicted by me -  at only 2p. That left just four. My suspicion was that AIM-listed member of the Filthy Forty, Walcom (WALG) would be next with its head under the guillotine and the news there was only marginally better as death has been postponed to June.

Haydale – even at 2p open offer raises less than 50%, shares crash again. Sell.

Published 72 days ago

Oh dear – things are going from bad to worse at AIM-listed Haydale. The bailout refinancing had to be repriced down to just 2p and the open offer raised less than half the amount wanted. And now the shares have fallen below the bailout price – which was set at 2p, the nominal (or par) value of the shares which make raising any more cash a tad difficult.

Five slam-dunk sells for 2019 – one down, four to go

Published 90 days ago

They say that a week is a long time in politics (attributed to Harold Wilson), and so it seems with the equity markets. A week ago my portfolio of five shares to sell was actually up by 4.6%. Now, all of a sudden we are at minus 8.6%.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: this podcast really is an aphrodisiac according to 1 listener (at least)

Published 91 days ago

I cover the matter in the tiitle at the end of this podcast and also remind you that tomorrow is my first long training walk for the 33 mile Woodlarks trek in the summer where we now have EIGHT rogue bloggers signed up and where I ask each bearcast listener to think of me tomorrow and donate a tenner HERE. In the podcast I discuss my unhappiness over City behaviour at Reach4Entertainment (R4E), Yourgene (YGEN) and ref Chris Oil. I stress that I own shares in Yourgene and Reach and both are cheap notwithstanding my unhappiness. I look at Haydale (HAYD), Flybe (FLYB) and Chesterfield (CHF)

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Haydale misleads and some investors are too thick to realise

Today's podcast focusses in on the sheer stupidity of some private investors and covers Flybe (FLYB), Haydale (HAYD), Telit (TCM) and finally the disgraceful tale of crony capitalism that is Davictus (DVT).

Haydale – ouzo on the way and Proactive should be ashamed; still a screaming sell

Published 93 days ago

Well here we are: I’ve  been saying for months that AIM-listed Haydale (HAYD) had to raise cash in a material way, all the way down from 78p last June and now we have word of a placing at just 5p which Steve Moore published yesterday. Amazingly, even after the company more-or-less confirmed our story (or failed to deny) the shares still sit at 12.25p, having been as low as 9.75p. Some people simply won’t be told. But Proactive should be shame-faced.

Five slam-dunk sells for 2019 – mid-February update

It is four weeks since my last update, so it is time to take another look at my sells for 2019. The five have, as a whole, had a better month but I cannot help but think that for three of them the precipice approaches...

Haydale – Wheelsure suspended pending accounts: where does that leave the collaboration?

Published 112 days ago

Back on 27 November 2018, AIM-listed Haydale (HAYD) announced (via RNS Reach, mind you) a collaboration with NEX-listed Wheelsure (WHLP) was being joined by Manchester University’s Graphene Engineering Innovation Centre (GEIC) in a project to develop an intelligent new product pairing Haydale's functionalised graphene sensor technology with Wheelsure's failsafe locking solution. Of course, Haydale needed cash then (as it does now). But then so did Wheelsure (see HERE). As such it all looked like a ramp.

5 Sells for 2019 – early January update

Published 123 days ago

I thought I’d update on my 5 sells for 2019 as after just a couple of weeks a few cracks are beginning to show already. The five, Telit (TCM), Haydale (HAYD), Yu Group (YU.), Walcom (WALG) of the ShareProphets AIM-China Filthy Forty and First Derivatives (FDP) are not necessarily shorts – some, such as Walcom, couldn’t be shorted anyway. But they are sells.

Haydale – after yesterday’s selling news, yet another RNS Reach

Published 129 days ago

I see that AIM-listed Haydale (HAYD) has released yet another RNS Reach to tell of an eighteen month supply agreement. The shares have jumped once again, by 12%, But, of course, it is an RNS Reach and thus should be viewed as a marketing, rather than anything significant such as mega-earnings.

Haydale – another insti bailing and more insider dealing

Published 130 days ago

AIM-listed Haydale (HAYD) is still seeing its management selling shares and another institution seems to be bailing out. Of course, we know that Haydale needs a placing and it is only a matter of time before the £3.2 million black hole in the balance sheet as predicted by paid-for researcher Hardman (so I’ll bet it is more) has to be addressed.

Haydale – more insider selling tells you all you need to know

Published 138 days ago

It was announced on Friday that the former CEO and now former board member of AIM-listed Haydale (HAYD) has been selling shares. Back in December it was his two colleagues at Haydale Ceramic Technologies dumping shares (over £110,000 worth). In September, former boss Ray Gibbs sold about 38,000 bits of confetti and now he’s sold a further 80,000 shares. That’s a fair bit of selling by insiders!

Haydale: PMDRs selling out, take note!

Published 147 days ago

I have been calling AIM-listed Haydale lower from 78p last June, in the wake of a nasty profit warning. Since then we have had two more, and even the company’s paid-for ramper research company Hardman admits the company needs more cash but Haydale sat on its hands instead of biting the bullet until raising a pitiful £250,00 in a placing at 20p shortly before Christmas and kicked the can down the road with a further £750,000 loan (at 11% interest).

Haydale – well ho ho ho, time for an ouzo!

Published 154 days ago

And so, at long last, AIM-listed graphene play Haydale (HAYD) has raised some money. With the shares closing at 25.5p last night, it raised just £250,000 in a placing at 20p (a 21.5% discount) and £750,000 by way of a loan from the Development Bank of Wales at 11%. Oh, and we have a new finance director (did he jump or was he pushed), the former CEO (who stepped down on the profit warning back in June) is off (did he jump or was he pushed too?) and so is a NED. 

Haydale – Wheelsure nonsense!

Published 161 days ago

We all know that AIM-listed Haydale needs to raise money, and we have had all forms of pumping to support it in the form of RNS Reaches and paid-for broker notes. Now we see reannounced old news from NEX-listed Wheelsure (WHLP) regarding the joint venture with Haydale and the University of Manchester which Haydale announced on 27 November (and Wheelsure announced on the 26th)! Even Haydale didn’t even bother with an RNS Reach, although an announcement went out via Alliance News: never miss the opportunity to re-inform! But this does beg one or two questions.

Haydale – ANOTHER RNS Reach!! Pre bailout placing ramp in full swing!

Published 175 days ago

AIM-listed purveyor of all things graphene, Haydale (HAYD) has been on an RNS Reach-fest, the latest of which came this morning. Of course, RNS Reach announcement are by definition immaterial and are best viewed as free advertising. But the market has bought into the ramp and the shares are markedly up on the 12p low point they reached when it emerged – along with proft warning No. 3 in six months – that Haydale had been unable to raise loan finance it had planned to. The stock is now up at 36.5p – still a long way down from the 78p at which I wrote about the company last June.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Could Watchstone, the bastard son of Quindell, be a buy?

In today's podcast I look at Tomco (TOM), Watchstone (WTG), the bastard son of Quenron, Condor Gold (CNR), dire numbers from WH Ireland (WHI) and the read across to the FinnCrap IPO, Amedeo Resources (AMED), the Sith Lord Zak Mir and Optibiotix (OPTI) and at Haydale (HAYD)

Haydale – another RNS Reach, no numbers. Desperate stuff

Published 186 days ago

AIM-listed and almost out of cash Haydale (HAYD) has issued yet another RNS Reach, this time to tell us that it has signed an exclusive deal with TKS Siampress Management for an anti-counterfeiting product. Whoopie doo – but there are, predictably, no numbers offered. And an RNS Reach is for news which is, effectively, not material.

Haydale – paid-for researcher Hardman issues another (suicide) note

Published 192 days ago

As covered here on ShareProphets many times, AIM-listed Haydale (HAYD) is in deep trouble as finally admitted last Friday. I’ve been saying sell all the way down from 78p in June of this year and the shares plunged to just 13.5p on Friday – after the company warned it was short of cash and offered, effectively, yet another profit warning (the third in three months). Last night the shares were 12.25p and Hardman, which ramped the shares after hours in September only to see the shares fall in response the next day, has had another go. It is laughable.

Haydale – gets a grant, shares race ahead 21%. A good opportunity to get out!

Published 223 days ago

AIM-listed Haydale (HAYD) has announced that it has got a grant of £120,000 from a package worth £249,600 and the shares have raced ahead by 21% to 32p. Of course, the RNS announcing the funding was an RNS reach and therefore does not affect the dire financial position of the company, which I fear may be doomed. Shareholders would be well advised to look skywards in gratitude and view the rise as a welcome opportunity to exit.

Haydale – shares tanking again. When's the placing (if you can)?

Published 230 days ago

I can’t help but notice that shares in AIM-listed Haydale have been on the slide once more. Today they are off by another 13.2% - I wonder if the company wants to issue a statement as to the reason why? Na….thought not. Well, just to help out Haydale (‘cos we are such nice guys)…..

Haydale: now a director is selling - follow the lead

Published 235 days ago

Yesterday afternoon while the city was tuning in to the Ryder Cup, AIM-listed Haydale (HAYD) released an RNS announcing the sale of 38,233 shares (about 7.7% of his holding) by director Ray Gibbs – the CEO who announced his intention to step down in June on the back of a profit warning – on 26th September, the day before Hardman issued its after-hours ramptastic buy note.

Yesterday at 5.20pm – no-one-is-watching o’clock – paid-for research house put out some piffle about AIM-listed Haydale (HAYD). The shares are attractively valued compared with their peer group, on P/NAV and EV/sales, and also on a DCF basis don’cha know. Well, maybe – apart from the fact it is loss-making, going to run out of cash and the last placing was at a 32% discount! If the company thought that would get a lift in the share price, I’ve got bad news….

Shares in AIM-listed graphene play Haydale (HAYD) are off again to 44p (mid, last seen) following full year results to June this morning. Following a profit warning in June, when I said this was a bargepole stock at 78p and suggested that we were in for a £6 million loss before tax, cash would be down to around £5 million at year-end and another big cash-call was on the way, let’s see how my Mystic Meg powers are holding up……

AIM-listed graphene play Haydale (HAYD) announced a Contract Updates % Notice of Results RNS this morning. Don’t be fooled: there’s a placing coming and the updates are a tad over-dressed to help.

Haydale – shares crash again. So much for a placing at 50p, SELL!

Published 306 days ago

Shares in AIM-listed Haydale have been a one-way bet to financial destruction ever since it conducted a placing at 120p (a discount to the then share price of some 32%). In the wake of a trading warning and the stepping aside of its CEO, the stock has now crashed to just 50.5p – the stock gave up a further 14% on Friday alone. The problem is that it needs to get another bailout placing away.

Haydale – another RNS Reach……when’s the placing?

Published 309 days ago

AIM-listed Haydale (HAYD) has issued another RNS Reach announcement to add to the one released on June 19th. But we all know (don’t we?) that RNS Reach announcements are effectively marketing ploys, not hard news of cashflow. And we also know that Haydale has to get a placing away in order to get its accounts signed off as a going concern.

Haydale – (almost) no-one-is-watching o’clock holdings in company tells you what you need to know

Published 334 days ago

AIM-listed Haydale offered a terrible trading update the week before last, announced the CEO was moving aside and we know it needs to raise cash. In that context, the ramptastic pre-placing RNS Reach of Tuesday and a sub-£9,000 director’s-wife’s buy announced on Wednesday would appear to need taking with a large pinch of salt. Last night, at 4.20pm, however, we learnt that Legal & General had been selling.

Haydale - when director buying says sell

Yesterday afternoon, AIM-listed Haydale (HAYD) announced a buy by the wife of one of the NEDs. That should be good news, but I see it as bad news - especially as we all know the company needs to get a placing away and has just announced a crap trading update.

Haydale: “Strong Commercial Progress”? No - Red Flags ahoy, it’s a pre-placing ramp.

Published 339 days ago

AIM-listed Haydale (HAYD) has offered the market an RNS this morning describing “Strong Commercial Progress”. Bearing in mind the profit warning of last week, and the inevitability of another bailout placing one wonders if this marks the appearance of pastures new in the distance, or whether it is just a pre-placing ramp.

Haydale – disappointing sales, CEO steps aside. Oh, and surely a placing on the way. Timber….

Published 345 days ago

I previously looked at AIM-listed Haydale (HAYD) last October (HERE), concluding It may be a great business in the making, but the lack of visibility of earnings (just £6 million over the next 3.5 years) is too thin – profits seem an awfully long way away and the carefully crafted obfuscation in the trading statement makes me steer a wide berth…. Today we got a warning that sales have been disappointing, the CEO stepping aside and cash sitting at £5.6 million. Given that it raised £9.3 million last October (at a 32% discount) one has to wonder how long it will be before the tin is rattled again.

Haydale – up to £9m fundraising on (piss poor) results release day...TIMBER!!

Published 590 days ago

AIM-listed Haydale (HAYD) joined Applied Graphene (AGM) on the heavily discounted fundraising trail yesterday from the graphene sector of AIM (albeit it has other products as well). Not only has it announced its full year results to June, it offered the begging bowl at not less that 120p per share. Given that the stock closed last night at 176p, it suggests that the company was expecting a frosty reception. At the low point the stock was trading down 54.5p at 121.5p before a recovery to 125.5.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast - Savannah Resources you are so fecking transparent

Published 591 days ago

Some companies are so transparent. I look at the RNS from Savannah Resources (SAV), do the maths and predict a placing within weeks. I then crow about one I called earlier, Applied Graphene Materials (AGM). Then it is onto Interquest (ITQ) which is back on the AIM casino thanks to Nomad Allenby, a firm that I take to task for being morally bankrupt. I look at Johnston  Press (JPR) which is nothing to do with Luke Johnson who is also mentioned. I then look at Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO) and i3 Energy (i3E) as well as the dog Haydale (HAYD)
