Goals Soccer Centres – ‘investment delivering improvement’, ‘progress from strategic recovery plan’. Hmmm…

In today's podcast I spend a lot of time looking at Pantheon Resources (PANR) - when is the next bailout placing? I make wider observations about this sector. There is then a direct challenge to Mileestone (MSG) about Lyin' Larry and to its Nomad Cairn Financial. I then look at Mila (MILA) and MySquar (MYSQ) commenting on how some AIM CEO's groom BBMs like peadophiles groom their victims. Sam Antar has made the same analogy . It is all about gaining trust.

OK, I’m breaking all the rules – the deal was two long tips and here I am with a third tip of the year and it is five stocks and they are shorts (or at least avoids). Still, as Cynical Bear knows, rules are for breaking, and in any case we both broke the rules in our suggestions for shares looking for a Christmas surge when we named two, not one.

I do not always agree with Richard Jennings of Align Research. He is 100% right about cats, 100% wrong about Israel and on all other matters he sits on the spectrum between those two extremes. But his latest missive to the FCA is bang on. I share his frustration.

I am still in a foul mood. Bah fucking humbug. The season of Goodwill is cancelled. This podcast contains a lot of bad language. I look at blockchain madness: Coinsilium (COIN), On Line (ONL), Vela (VELA) and Longfin (US:LFIN) on Nasdaq. Buy why is Milestone (MSG) missing out? Well Larry Cummins is a liar and that is just for starters. I look at Fishing Republic (FISH) where a statement is needed and then there is a detailed look at the latest horse served up by Uk Oil & Gas (UKOG) which is a stand out slam dunk sell for reasons I explain in detail.

With Milestone Group (MSG) still unable or unwilling to put out an announcement to its shareholders about its relationship with Lyin’ Larry Cummins, I thought I would keep the pressure on with a couple of snippets that I find amusing about the fraudulent front of the man. I mean he’s not a writer, gardener, ballet dancer or boxer from Boston but I still find it amusing.

Another bad day at the office for Britain's most conceited fund manager Neil "nomates" Woodford. There is yet more bad news at Vernalis (VER) now 9p having collapsed again - Nomates has been a big cheerleader after all prior disasters saying Mr Market is wrong. Whatever. Then there is the issue of IP Group ( IPO). Elsewhere I takje another look at IDOX (IDOX) where I am even more bearish and then at Tungsten (TUNG) which looks all wrong. I also comment on Dialight (DIA) , The People's Operator (TPOP), On Line (ONL), Milestone Group (MSG) and a chat with Mark Slater on a pub company which is just the wrong price.

That Larry Cummins of Black Cactus is a proven liar is now widely accepted. What is stunning is that AIM listed Milestone (MSG) whose entire market value is based on the belief that a deal with Black Cactus is worth something has failed to comment. Maybe the Securities & Exchange Commission in the US will force its hand.

In Today's bearcast I look at ValiRx (VAL) whose CEO I actually like and at my portfolio, am I worried no? I comment on what Nigel Somerville is up to today which is bad news indeed for Larry Cummins of Black Cactus and Milestone (MSG) infamy. I look at Ambrian (AMBR), The People's Operator (TPOP), Magnolia Petroloeum (MAGP) and how it legged AIM over yet again, at Physiomics (PYC) and finally in depth at Lombard Risk Management (LRM) where the curse of Phil "InterX" Crawford looks set to strike again.

Black Cactus which is run by proven liar Larry Cummins (BA Oxon NOT!!!) is clearly critical to Milestone Group (MSG) which - without BC - is pretty much worthless. We suspect that even with BC Milestone is sunk so let's go to Companies House shall we?

Further to my weekend expose on Milestone Group’s (MSG) saviour, Larry Cummins and his dubious CV, I couldn’t help but notice that Larry suddenly seems to come over all immodest and has removed all signs of his incredibly impressive education from his LinkedIn and corporate website. Why could that be?

Yesterday we accused key Milestone Group (MSG) player Larry Cummins of lying about his educational achievements. Cummins has told Align Research, a supporter and shareholder, that our article was not true. He has "denied" it. Align has thus urged Milestone to make a statement and has again urged it to comment on today's article about Adrian Towning. You can see the tweet from Align below. We urge Milestone to proceed with extreme caution on this matter...

Further to yesterday’s piece on Milestone Group (MSG), it gets a bit more serious today as any Milestone shareholders should think very hard about whether they want to get into bed with Black Cactus and Larry Cummins as he looks like an A1 prize bull-shitter to me.

A couple of pieces this weekend on one of the Blockchain Buffoons, Milestone Group (MSG). First a light-hearted look at what must have been a dispiriting clear-out this week of the ex-CEO, Deborah White’s mess and then tomorrow a more serious piece that I would urge all Milestone shareholders to read. First though, the (more amusing stuff.

Deborah White should have been fired as boss of AIM uber-dog Milestone (MSG) so many times. The company has been a serial non deliverer, shareholders have lost nearly everything and Debs has made out like a squealer being amply rewarded for her abject failure. Then last Autumn was the crime that should have seen her go to jail

I have it well sourced that the leading shareholders in AIM Casino listed Milestone Group (MSG) have demanded the immediate resignation of its serially underperforming CEO Deborah White. And the demand is backed with menace.

This morning AIM uber dog Milestone (MSG) announced that a new investor, Para & Co (UK) Ltd, was providing a cash advance of up to £400,000 of cash via a convertible loan note as part of a total capital raise of up to £1.5 million for a maximum interest of 29.9% at a price of 0.29 pence per share. Nigel covered this earlier here but let's dig further into the affairs of this new investor.

Milestone’s (MSG) interim results today were truly appalling as it racked up a loss of £1.1 million. The statement about the "progress" of its range of sub scale crap businesses is - as ever - upbeat. Read the words and you think this company must have done brilliantly. And then you look at the P&L buried beneath the acres of spin and you see that sales in the six months to March 31 2017 were just £22, 237. Down by 56% on the prior year and just pitiful. The ice cream van parked in my street just now generates more sales than this POS which has no right to be on the AIM Casino at all. It gets worse...

The underlying problem with Milestone Group (MSG) is that it is a crap business that never generates any cash. Thus in order to keep CEO Deborah White in the lifestyle to which she has become accustomed and to keep paying crony capitalist advisers such as shamed PR firm Walbrook (Eden, Fusionex, Advanced Oncotherapy etc) it relies on bailout placing after bailout placing with shareholders seeing value destroyed every time.

Readers will be aware of the aborted placing in Milestone Group (MSG) and the City bucket shop that is City of London Markets per HERE. What we can reveal is that the individual at the heart of the debacle is a gentleman by the name of Spencer Binks – a name in certain circles of the City that is described as “colourful”.

I think Deborah White of Milestone Group (MSG) should be fired and then made to to a perp walk for her blatant breach of AIM rules with regard to non disclosure of price sensitive information. But there is another reason to hand Debs a p45 today...her stunning record of non delivery. It is worth chronicling just how bad it is.

Tom and I have been pretty consistent in our criticism of lifestyle company, Milestone Group (MSG), and although it was touched upon in Friday’s Bearcast (HERE), I thought the ridiculous recent RNS’s required a bit more of a kicking. It is an appalling effort with one sole purpose, to try to seduce new mug punters into supporting this useless company.

I wrote about Milestone Group (MSG) back in November (HERE) highlighting it as one of the best examples of a lifestyle company on AIM. That combined with the lack of disclosure around the (lack of) funding in October suggests one should stay well clear. Today’s results for the full year to 30 September 2016 only emphasise that fact.

I start and end with Cloudtag (CTAG) - so far today no news which I take to mean it is bad news and explain why. At the end I discus who disgruntled and out of pocket punters should sue over this fraud and when. In the middle of the Cloudtag fraud sandwich I look at Andalas Energy (ADL) which really is fucked whatever it says. I reckon Justin the Clown will have to sell the cardboard box and sleep in the open air before long. I also look at Starcom (STAR), Servision (SEV) - which is a major scandal in the making - Union Jack Oil (UJO) and Milestone Group (MSG) which remains non investment grade crap as CEO Deborah White should be wearing an orange jump suit and doing a perp walk.

I will produce a detailed photo article on my manual labours today on the fields at the Greek Hovel later today but I am rapidly concluding that I am getting a bit old for this manual labour malarky. No doubt six months on a building site over the summer will knock me into shape. In terms of the markets Steve Moore is a nice guy. He needs to learn to be a total bastard like me. I comment on Brave Bison (BBSN) where young Steve was just far too nice - someone at Brave should be doing a per walk. In a similar vein I comment on Milestone Group (MSG). Then it is onto the much ramped Frontera Resources (FRR), ditto China Africa (CAF) and then onto Inmarsat (ISAT) and Avanti Communications (AVN). Oh and I have chatted to Colin Bird of Xtract Resources (XTR).

Three generations of Winnifrith males appear today. Young Joshua is with me as I record and chips in now and again. we start with my father helping Boris Johnson with some of his history errors. Poor show Boris. Then I look further at Murray d'Almeida and Management Resource Solutions (MRS). I follow up my earlier Winnileaks massive expose HERE by asking if insider dealing took place? Then I turn to uber dog & AIM rule breaker Milestone Group (MSG) before commenting on Torotrak (TRK), Cambria Africa (CMB) and Challenger Acquisitions (CHAL). Then I revert to Boohoo.com, the unacceptable face of capitalism which I covered in a bearcast special earlier. I repeat my warning for shareholders: it is all about unknowns.

I appreciate that there are many contenders for the title in the heading of this piece but I do think Milestone Group (MSG) can make a real claim to be up there as one of the best examples of the AIM lifestyle company and, as a result, the recent funding issue highlighted HERE shouldn’t really be that much of a surprise. Please allow me to explain.

Talk about a good day to bury bad news: every media commentator is trying to come to terms with the election of Donald Trump (with the notable exception of our own Tom Winnifrith, who is off to get his new Poll Sheriff’s badge) and so at 3.41pm yesterday AIM-listed Milestone Group (MSG) slipped out a “miscellaneous” RNS. It may have won two big contracts recently but in terms of this RNS, there was nothing miscellaneous about it: this company is in serious trouble.
