Notes from Underground: Why read when Bearcast is around?

Published 2 days ago

Since I broke up the leaderboard into stories and Bearcasts—as a way of shoehorning in more stories—readers don't really get to see the domination of Bearcasts on the leaderboard, much to Tom's irritation.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: CyanConnode - did it deceive and Malcolm bonkers on bankers

Published 5 days ago

In today's bearcast recorded before my first training walk for Woodlarks I look at Sabien (SNT) and ask if CyanConnode (CYAN) misled ahead of its last bailout placing. I deal with the nature of fraud, the culpability of Luke Johnson (there is none) and Patisserie Holdings (C AKE) and then explain why I think Malcolm's stance on the bankers is bonkers

Patisserie Holdings …it gets worse: formal update from not so lucky Luke Johnson

Published 6 days ago

My pal Luke Johnson used to be known as Lucky. Just like Lord Lucan. Luke does not stand accused of butchering his nanny and is not fleeing the country but there is blood on the streets round at Patisserie Holdings (CAKE) and Luke’s luck seems to have run out. Though I was a perma bear on Patisserie it gives me no pleasure to be revealed as a superb journalist once again...

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: defending my friend Luke Johnson as the deadwood press prepares another attack

Published 12 days ago

In today's podcast I look at Brighton Pier (PIER) in some detail and am almost tempted to make a small speculative punt on my pal Luke Johnson. I look at Debenhams (DEB) and Marks & Spencer (MKS) and at Imaginatik (IMTK). Finally I have a few questions ( again) about Wey Education (WEY). Oh. There is also a sexist joke in there and if you are offended I really don't give a damn.

Brighton Pier Group – gloomy & hard-to-reach PIER follows inedible CAKE for Luke Johnson

Published 12 days ago

“Trading Update” from Brighton Pier Group (PIER) – and the shares currently down around 30%, at circa 45p. Uh oh – after the recent Patisserie Holdings (CAKE) debacle (and with its continuing share suspension), doesn’t look like things are getting any easier for ‘Lucky Luke’ Johnson…

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast - in praise and defence of my friend Luke Johnson

Published 79 days ago

I will not take the populist path of kicking Luke just becuase he is down. Firstly he is my friend and I don't abandon pals just because they are not flavour of the month right now and secondly, and more importantly, much of the criticism is pure bollocks by folks who could not run a whelk stall and do not know what they are talking about. I also look at what makes a dead cat bounce ref Photonstar Led (PSL), Urals Energy (UEN) and Inspirit Energy (INSP).

Patisserie Holdings can still sell you a mean cake

After everything that has happened to Patisserie Holdings (CAKE) in recent weeks, it is of little surprise that today's deadwood press includes an article about a potential bidder for the business:

Patisserie Holdings – winding up petition thrown out, but…..

Published 89 days ago

A marginally less bad day today for AIM-listed Patisserie Holdings (CAKE), owners of Patisserie Valerie in that there was good news in with the bad as announced just before 9am this morning. The good news is that a winding up petition against its main trading subsidiary, Stonebeach Ltd, has been thrown out. Good news: no trip to the insolvency shop, then. As for the bad news, it is a relatively small matter but perhaps tells us what may have been going on.

What I learnt from the Patisserie Holdings shocker

Published 99 days ago

A few days ago I mused upon occurrences at Patisserie Holdings (CAKE)  which I did not own shares in but intrinsically I liked...especially as a customer.  It seems to me that my gut feel back then that the combination of a skilful fraudster, poor internal controls and a professional lack of duty from the auditor all contributed.  As Luke Johnson - Chairman and biggest shareholder - noted in an article in lieu of his Sunday Times column this week: 

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: In defence of Luke Johnson as he's mauled by a degenerate & ignorant Press

Published 99 days ago

First of all please read abut the Christmas Woodlarks Santa's Grotto £2500 appeal and donate a tenner. If you like bearcast you know you can afford it. Details are HERE. This podcast covers the shameful and ignorant treatment of Luke Johnson over Patisserie Holdings (CAKE) and I stand in defence of Luke. This country needs more folks like him not fewer and much, if not all, of today's coverage is shockingly bad in every respect..

Patisserie Holdings still has a chance to recover

With any company where there has been fraudulent activity you have to consider whether there are more skeletons in the cupboard which could cause a further freefall in the share price when they emerge.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Luke Johnson's Cake and the (is it £20m) fraud, a few thoughts

Published 104 days ago

In today's bearcast I start with a look at Patisserie Holdings (CAKE) run by my pal Luke Johnson and I discuss the nature of fraud. I look at Sosandar (SOS) again and get really very angry (warning bad language alert), at FastJet (FJET), Telford Homes (TEF) and the folly of Government policy, Online Blockchain (OBC), and at Urals Energy (UEN) and the folly of the AIM Cesspit.

Patisserie Holdings - let them suspend CAKE

Published 104 days ago

Just when you think you have seen almost everything the market could throw at you...news today that Patisserie Holdings (CAKE) shares are suspended after 'the board of directors of the Company...has been notified of significant, and potentially fraudulent, accounting irregularities and therefore a potential material mis-statement of the Company's accounts'. Well we know what majority shareholder and Chair of the company Luke Johnson will be coordinating for the next few days, if not weeks and months…

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast - get your wallet out to see Brokerman Dan in his undies and...Vin is back!

Published 179 days ago

Thank you, thank you. we have reached our £20,000 target for Woodlarks. In fact Luke Johnson has just pledged £1,000 so we are now well over £21,000 but if we reach £25,000 Brokerman Dan will undress for you. More on that in the podcast but please donate, if you have not already, HERE. Elsewhere I look at Facebook (FB) and Robber Barons of the nineteenth century, at Imaginatik (IMTK) and Vin Murria, the Queen of Tech, at Range Resources (RRL) and at RM2 (RM") a Neil Woodford dog where I reckon cash is already looking tight, again!

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast - I ask for your help wherever you are

Published 260 days ago

I start with a discussion on regulation, estate agents and a doomed UK prompted by the excellent Sunday Times Column yesterday by #LukeJohnsonforPM. Then it is onto Folli Follie. The British may be idling their way through another bank holiday but hard working Greeks are back at work. So we have a weak denial statement from Folli Follie but its Athens based shares which were off 30% are now off only 18% and are bouncing fast. I think this is still a zero and ask you if you can examine this manifest of claimed stores and assist. FWIW I explain why the manifest just does not wash. I am off right now with my camera to the House of Fraser in Bristol. I have made a call already and this will be a "win" for the Bears. Watch this space... - if anyone can do other HoF stores, Selfridges or the Irish ones on this list  and get me photos plus what the stores say J'd be grateful.

The one man you cannot miss - surely you want to know what the UK's top fund manager is buying & selling?

Published 294 days ago

No! Not Neil Woodford silly! The data about who is the UK's top fund manager is very clear and unless you hold the charts upside down it certainly is not Woodford. The hard data shows that Mark Slater was not only the 3rd best performing UK fund manager last year but over ten years is No 1. Facts don't lie - Slater, like his late father Jim - is just incredibly good at stock picking.

Tom Winnifrith bearcast: No Luke you are wrong - it is because Jamie Oliver as an A grade a'hole

Published 317 days ago

In today's bearcast I look at the writings of Ian Cowie in the Sunday papers and his cunning scheme to avoid IHT by losing all your money and his patronising view that journalists know better and can be trusted. A bit like Estate Agents and MPs then? I then discuss Luke Johnson's view that we are celebrating the business woes of Jamie Oliver because we envy him. Luke is not all wrong but overlooks the fact that Oliver is a patronising A grade A'hole.

Published 366 days ago

Again Carillion (CLLN) dominates the news and the political class is talking utter tosh with our useless Prime Minister Mrs May leading the way. By way of contrast Luke Johnson is superb in his Sunday Times Column today. Luke for PM before it is too late.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Milestone, On Line, Tizania - the lunatics have taken over the AIM casino asylum

Published 421 days ago

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)

Luke Johnson's apocalyptic - but sensible - warning about stockmarket madness

Published 422 days ago

When asset classes reach new highs, whipped ever higher by froth, sentiment or easy money, folks always insist that "it will be different this time" and arrive at new convoluted ways of justifying absurd valuations. We are at that stage now warns the great Luke Johnson in today's Sunday Times. Of course he is right.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast - I agree with Luke Johnson on shite small cap research

Published 464 days ago

I start with a look at the poverty of small cap coverage in the Sundays but then in general. Just where can you get quality objective material on AIM shares? Then responding to Malcolm's what he looks for in shares to buy, I go through a good look at what I look for in shares to avoid or short.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast - Savannah Resources you are so fecking transparent

Published 469 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)

Wanna buy shares at 11 cents when a £3.50 bid has been tabled? Welcome to the crazy world of Africa New Energies

Published 554 days ago

Back in February 2017 I was contacted by a private company Africa New Energies asking if I wanted to buy shares in a placing at 11 cents. Since the company is run by Stephen Larkin, a man who takes advice from loathsome Richard "Gollum" Gill I was nor rushing to sign up. But then I was told, but we are going to be taken over soon at 350p per share a bid has been tabled! Er... so is this placing not sort of insider dealing I asked?

There are two parts to this podcast. I start by explaining how a liquidation works with reference to the fraud Worthington (WRN). I know some of its shareholders are obsessing about this and reckon they should report me to the liquidator. Go ahead, we are already talking. Then I move onto a quite brilliant column by Luke Johnson about the myth that is the sharing new economy and specifically how it effects uber but also the media world with evil google and the bulletin boards in my sights

Eclectic Bars – More Crony capitalists meriting a firing squad after the libertarian revolution

Published 1203 days ago

I am on an anger roll with the crony capitalists on the AIM casino today. SeaEnergy (HERE) was the first to feel my ire. Next up is the board at Eclectic Bars (BAR). When the great libertarian revolution comes the newly privatised Police force will round these swine up too and – having organised a firing squad as a result of a competitive tender process to select the shooters - these bastards will also be put up against the wall.

Eclectic Bar Group – Luke Johnson to work his magic

Published 1316 days ago

Eclectic Bar Group (BAR) yesterday delivered a master class in how to deliver bad news. At 7 a.m. the company announced its latest dire trading update. For about thirteen minutes shareholders must have been pulling their hair out. Faced with the third overnight cliff dive in seven months, this ill-fated bunch would have been forgiven for wondering which stock market gods it had wronged to deserve such poor fortune. Then at 7:13 a.m., like a divine bolt from the blue, came the second RNS. None other than serial leisure entrepreneur Luke Johnson (primarily of Pizza Express fame) was buying into the company and joining the board as Executive Chairman.

In this podcast I look back at some of the themes and highlights (for me) of UK Investor Show 2015. The hall was packed and I hope that folks all had fun. There are some pictures of the day HERE and to order tickets on an early bird 50% discount for April 16 2016 click HERE and there is a last chance to win a holday at the Greek Hovel HERE.  Among the highlights for me were the Horse Hill panel, Ben Edelman on blinkx which was damming, the bears on Tungsten which was also pretty damming but the buy ideas from Mark Slater, Paul Scott and Paul Jourdan. Luke Johnson was a cracking performer and I think I wasnot too bad either. Anyhow, I reflect on yesterday

Shefers has posted a comment on an article on this website which wins him the coveted title of Bulletin Board Moron of the week.  He is also clearly the sort of Jew hater who would have regarded The Protocols of the Elders of Zion as ideal bed-time reading for his kids.
