The Dark Destroyer warns that Mothercare won't exist in two years time

Published 60 days ago

I was uber bearish on Mothercare (MTC) in yesterday's bearcast and could easily see it go to zero as I explained in full. My confidence in that assessment is reinforced by comments made by Matt Earl, the Dark Destroyer who is the Mothercare specialist in the global shorting conspiracy.

The talents of Ruth Veronique Katz/Cats the wife of Telit Communications (TCM) boss Oozi/Uzi know no bounds. She is the owner of showjumping ponies which allow her daughter to compete for Israel. She owns a company producing arthouse films. Back in the early nineties it seems as if she, or someone born on the same day with the same name married to a man of the same name, had expertise in real estate fraud, as I revealed earlier today HERE. But still Ruth marches on, slaving away as a, no doubt well paid, employee of Telit. What does she do? Over to LinkedIn....

Tom Winnifrith: The Top short sellers, bears and fraudbusters all together on April 1 - don't miss out

Published 303 days ago

You might hate bear raiders. You might think that short selling is unethical. But what you cannot argue with is that ignoring men such as Evil Knievil when they sniff out a fraud or accounting malpractice will cost you a packet. At last year's UK Investor Show the Country's top bears did a detailed presention on AIM darling Avanti Communications, one of the AIM companies most beloved by professional fund managers. Since that warning Avanti shares have collapsed by more than 90%. This year the bears have new targets.

Avanti Communications now just 18.75p to sell - but bonds tell you that it is still 100% too high! S&P alert.

Published 346 days ago

I am still boondoggled by the way that Avanti Communications (AVN) managed to get a refinancing away. You will remember that the cash guzzling satellites business which misses every operational target going was set to run out of what little cash it had left. Amazingly it persuaded its bond holders to agree to accept stacks of interest on its bonds in new ( equally worthless) bonds. And it got the institutional mugs to sign up for more bonds.

My top ten shorts for Christmas – Tom Winnifrith

Published 824 days ago

Circumstances change, share prices change and so ones evaluation of what is in sight as a good short always changes. Challenged by a reader I serve up my ten top shorts/sells for Christmas, with one caveat.

Dialight... more expensive than you think?

Published 826 days ago

Dialight (DIA) has defied gravity of late. I wonder if buyers realise how expensive it likely is. Bloomberg consensus earnings expectations for full year 2015 are set at 21.7p per share. That would suggest DIA trades on a relatively pricey 32x this year's earnings. But it's likely no where near that cheap. 

Optimal Payments ... a gamble in China? A sure fire short bet

In this podcast I look back to my own experiences of the dotcom bubble of 2000-2001 you see I remember it well, the lunacy, the excess and how it all ended in 2001-2002. It ended in tears. My mind is drawn to this as I contemplate the New Media bubble of 2015 and signs that it too will end in tears. I refer to two excellent articles, one on Zero Hedge HERE and the other on this website by Matty Earl, the Dark Destroyer (HERE). Both offer real insight. And I then speculate on why New Media will blow up and on the wider ramifications.

After hours Tungsten (TUNG) responded to a dramatic fall in its share price with a statement that was so weedy that it almost makes me tempted to go short, something I have not done before.

I reckon Dialight (DIA) is a grossly overvalued business. All I see is a business capitalised at £255 million, with little in the way of IP, and a dismal record of free cash flow generation. For example, on my calculations it achieved a free cash outflow of £4.6 million in 2013, as compared to a paltry free cash inflow of £2.5 million in 2012.

Long and wrong shareholders in Quindell (QPP), Avanti Communications (AVN) and Globo (GBO) please take note of this warning amd case study from the Dark Destroyer Matt Earl. Matt Writes: A common misconception used by longs against short sellers is that a short argument can be negated by the fact that a shorted company's management may have bought stock (typically subsequent to a short attack). This is not always so and can be a dangerous (and lazy) assumption. One of many instances where it proved a mistake is in the case of Connaught (CNT).
