In today's podcast I look again at yellow journalism re Woodford Patient Capital Trust (WPCT) as covered HERE and the MySquar (MYSQ) fraud. The corrupt deadwood press is part of the problem not the solution. I cover the latest news from MySquar in case I don't have time for a dedicated article. Today is a Joshua day but I hope to write as he takes a nap. I also look at Mirriad (MIRI), Mosman Oil & Gas (MSMN) anmd Haydale Graphene (HAYD) whose news today means that Nigel Somerville will have enjoyed ouzo on his breakflast cornflakes.

What a great day. Telit (TCM) is under investigation by the FCA and Eqtec (ETQ) has really screwed up although why can't its PRs tell the truth for once and admit that its change of strategy was because I caught them all with their pants down and exposed them? This scandal begs real questions of Nomad Northland - hey chaps have you handed back the £75,000 yet? I also look at Optibiotix (OPTI) where last week's share purchase looks all the more prescient after news today. I look at Mosman Oil & Gas (MSMN) which is a dog whatever Zac Phillips is paid to say. I comment on Quartix (QTX) - insider dealing or bad luck? I comment on cash strapped SalVarx (SALV) - time for Jim Mellon to get his wallet out again methinks.

We replace each kill with a new candidate for death so until today 26 entrants had seen five recorded demises.

After last year’s highly selective reporting of its New Zealand oil “discoveries” (which didn’t turn out to be commercial), the board of Mosman Oil & Gas (MSMN) is back up to its old tricks. If you don’t read today’s RNS carefully enough, you’d be forgiven for thinking that the STEP Royalty is a cracking bit of business. The market has clearly fallen for the spin, with Mosman’s share price up 21% at 7.875p, last seen. Once again sentiment traders have blindly piled into a stock, which stands little to no chance of ever delivering shareholders a fundamental return. Here’s why.

It’s no secret that by early 2010 I had failed at what I was doing. Miserably. Facing up to that realisation was incredibly tough. A hair’s breadth from bankruptcy, the following couple of years were a surprisingly liberating experience. There is nothing like a period of enforced penury to help one reassess what matters in life and redefine one’s course. At some point, in the not too distant future, the directors of Mosman Oil & Gas (MSMN) are likely going to share this experience, as they finally come to terms with the fact their business has no serious future on AIM.

Then there are the lessons we learn from Arria, the Kenmare tale, Optare, Mosman and Ubisense which seems like a POS.

I am off shortly to the London Stock Exchange AGM and events today show why AIM is such a joke of a casino. I refer to statements by Mosman, the er..lies of New World Oil & Gas and the total farce over Horse Hill. I give you full details of the next Dave Lenigas IPO and where to apply, not that I shall be doing so I stress. I cover the latest disaster to hit my good friend JimMellon, this time it is at Webis. and what the Benchmark and Hardide profits warnings tell us about wider equity valuations.

Shares rise for no reason, the company say there is no reason, they fall, a few spoofers make money. In other cases stocks are being ramped in ways that are completely outside the rules of the game. Sorry to do this but I have to use the weekend's nonsense from Sefton (SER) as an example. Either there are rules in which case this stock needs suspending and some folks getting a slap on the wrists or there are no rules in which case the hoods are running the asylum and AIM is officially not an honest place to do business. I also look at Mosman Oil & Gas, Daniel Stewart ( apologies timescale a day out on that one) and a few other POS stocks.

I am in a good mood today as I launch into a podcast tirade. Under fire are: Crap Oil, Sorry Trap Oil, Edenville, Condor Gold (placing ahoy), Plethora (ditto), Mosman (ditto), Matomy Media, blinkx and then a full frontal assault on Camkids - come on Nick Harris at Allenby Capital be a hero, you know what to do

I refer to blinkx and the cracking Ben Edelman video HERE and discuss why companies that scam customers are bad investments. I then moved onto the market being in a good mood and discuss Greatland Gold, Mosman Oil & Gas, Environment Recycling and other shit. Then it is onto UK Oil & Gas and why the mainstream press is after Big Dave Lenigas. Then onto a couple of dogs, lead by Shoe Zone and Prospex Oil. Prospex who you say? Dogs can change their name but not their fleas.

Thanks to bloody Doc Holiday and the Mrs and her damned organic vegetable box this is my third take on this Bearcast and I have thus wasted 40 minutes of prime time working and am not pleased. In the podcast I look at Wildhorse Energy and insider dealing ( no apologies for crude racial sterotypes about Australians and how they got there), Daniel Stewart, Good Energy and Malcolm Stacey's other weekend share tips, Mosman Oil & Gas and have a detailed look at Condor Gold.

In today's podcast I reflect on all the moron comments on Bulletin Boards every time Ive been threatened with legal action by crony capitalists or outright crooks. I forgot to mention Angus Forrest of Tern in that list but it did not work out to well for him just like threats from Globo, Range Resources, blinkx, Quindell, Cupid, Sefton, TXO and now Worthington as well as the clowns in charge of the LSE Asylum all ended up badly for them. Get used to it folks, I pick my targets carefully and I win! I then have a shock revelation about TXO before going on to discuss eServGlobal, Rosslyn Data, Mosman Oil & Gas and more.

Sorry for the delay. Note to scumbag FT writers - if you wish to lift anything in this Bearcast please give an attribution rather than claim it as your own scoop. Dan McCrum you know what I am talking about. I know you work for the FT but that does not mean you HAVE to act like a total wanker.

It appears that the insane and deluded are now congregating on the boards dedicated to three worthless stocks: Quindell (QPP), Afren (AFR) and Worthington (WRN). And so for this week's competition, all posts must relate to comments made on those stocks and also on Mosman Oil & Gas just for fun. Note to Dom Cooper, nominating the entire output of Quindell Express or the QPPSAG does not qualify as an entry. Those folks will be dealt with at a later date. The deadline for entries is next Sunday. Post away in the comments section below.

It is now three weeks since shares in Naibu (NBU) were suspended from the AIM casino pending clarification of its financial position, notwithstanding the fact that it claimed to be profitable, cash generative and to have net cash of £32 million – a multiple of its market cap. In light of this I have again written to Big Ray Zimmerman of ZAI Corporate Finance, Nomad to this fraud because the implications of the fraud are severe for not only Naibu but also ZAI, Daniel Stewart (DAN) and the other members of the Fujian four – China Chaintek (CTEK), Camkids (CAMK) and Jiasen (JSI). Plus for good measure JQW (JQW).

I start on the matter of free speech and attempts by the Jihadists of the QPPSAG to deny that. We won a big victory over the morons yesterday. In that vein I urge those who enjoy Bearcasts and who support free speech to book their seats for UK Investor Show on April 18 in Westminster now HERE. In the podcast I cover Mosman Oil & Gas, Rambler Metals, Red Leopard, Beacon Hill Resources, Management Resources and then go in big time on Asian Citrus but more especially on Camkids - target price 0p.

Oh dear, Oh dear, it seems as if the board as ASX listed MEO has been listening to my advice HERE and HERE as it has just now advised its shareholders to reject the all share bid from AIM casino listed Aussie based POS Mosman Oil & Gas (MSMN).

In today's podcast I look at how the human mind reacts to rising and falling share prices, the case study being Quindell (QPP) which is tanking today - now at 80p, target remains 0p. I look at Mosman Oil & Gas (MSMN) and its proposed Aussie takeover which - as I explain - must now be in terrible trouble - target here 1p. I look at the pointless Forte Energy and Red Emperor and then a read through from Produce Investments. I also propose a new "£4 million Rule" for the AIM Casino - what do you think?

Aussie based AIM casino listed Mosman Oil & Gas (MSMN) shares were at one stage last year ramped up to 45p on the back of some fairly “aggressive” claims about drilling success. They are now just 4.875p after interim results beg the question of whether this business is insolvent yet?

It really is time that I took the mantle up and commented on some of the so-called “Bulletin Board Heroes” for exactly what they are. At best lifestyle companies run for the benefit of their Board at worst out and out frauds using the London Stock Exchange as a mechanism for Corporate self-aggrandisement. Of course not all are fakirs or frauds some are just badly run companies while others have failed through poor management decisions or been subject to the vagaries of the market in which they operate. I hear an awful lot about the “China frauds” but there’s another class of dodgy geezers operating out of Perth Western Australia. The “Aussie Lurkers. What’s a Lurk? Google it!

The development of Mosman Oil & Gas (MSMN) is fascinating to watch. The company has executed an extremely well defined strategy, almost flawlessly. Since listing in March, the directors have taken the company’s share price from 8p to an intraday high of 56p. They have achieved this without announcing commercial discoveries of oil and without telling any lies. This high wire act is very impressive.

I had a good old chuckle yesterday when I read Mosman Oil & Gas’ (MSMN) latest promotional ramp... sorry, I mean RNS. Whatever else is said about this company, these guys have been brilliant at devising new ways of hinting at a worthwhile oil discovery without telling any lies or actually claiming what they have found is commercial. The company’s announcements have been true works of art. Sadly for Mosman’s directors it looks like the fun and games are now over. In suggesting that the little dribble of oil found settled on the mud at Crestal-1 could have similar properties to the apparently much-tested Kotuku oil seep, I bet they were surprised to see their company’s share price fall a penny to 21.5p. Something tells me that wasn’t part of the plan...

Yesterday, Mosman Oil and Gas (MSMN) gave the market an update on its acquisition of the privately held Trident Energy. The critical message shareholders were probably meant to pick up was that Mosman’s board has waived Condition 2 of the transaction i.e. for Mosman to “complete an equity capital raising of at least A$2million”. In its accompanying statement, Mosman’s board claimed it waived this condition, as a result of “the success of the recent fund raisings”, but how creditable is this assertion?

Today’s Horse Hill news hasn’t done much to lift the share prices of the listed participating companies. Perhaps this is to be expected, as approval from the UK Department of Energy and Climate Change was surely just a formality. Even so, the co-owners of Horse Hill Developments Ltd are experiencing something of a market lull, but I still expect this will prove to be the calm before the storm. Although there is the looming spectre of placements, it is hard to see Horse Hill fever reaching anything other than epic proportions. When I first covered this drill, last week, I was a little flippant when I picked Alba Resources (ALBA) as the stock I might take a gamble on, based solely on it having the fewest number of shares in issue. This morning, Alba provided its half yearly report and I think I might have to change my mind.

Whoever said that ShareProphets is a one trick pony?! Proving that this view of our work is entirely misguided, I thought I’d throw in another Horse Hill article onto today’s roster... “Not more bloody Horse Hill” I hear our avid readers cry, but this is likely to be the story that dominates British resource small caps over the rest of the summer. Given the wild reaction we’ve recently seen to Mosman Oil and Gas’ (MSMN) succession of oil “discoveries” in New Zealand (which, by its own admission, it doesn’t even know if they are commercial yet) the scene could be set for ecstatic market rapture if rumours ever leak from Horse Hill’s Surrey drill site. This could end up being the highest profile onshore exploration campaign ever seen in the UK and I wouldn’t be at all surprised if a temporary campsite springs up outside the gates, as desperate private speculators resort to whatever means they can to gain access to information. Although the smart ones will probably just hang out in the local pubs, when shifts end...

In case you haven’t heard, I think I am right in saying that Mosman Oil & Gas (MSMN) has discovered oil. Today’s latest double “discovery” hasn’t been greeted with the usual fanfare, as the share price has taken a sharp dive to 33.5p (last seen). Given that this precipitous drop is in response to the announcement of two “discoveries” at Crestal-1, perhaps the market is unimpressed at the total absence of detail of what has been found? Or perhaps people are more concerned about the pending placement?

In the old days Oilbarrel Conferences used to be graced by the likes of Cairn Energy (CNE) & Tullow Oil (TLW) and were packed out. These days, a combination of serial under-deliverers and promoters looking to ramp ahead of the next funding tend to present. Last week’s line up was so dire that if you are among the handful of attendees we provide this handy crib sheet of questions for dogs Range Resources (RRL), Green Dragon (GDG) and Northern Petroleum (NOP). Oh, and for good measure, we also include Mosman Oil & Gas (MSMN), in a well timed appearance.

On Monday, I had a discussion with Mosman Oil & Gas’ (MSMN) technical director Andy Carroll. I wanted to find out more about Mosman and the gaps I reported last week in its reporting of two oil “discoveries” in its Cross Roads-1 exploration well. To be honest, I don’t think Mr Carroll expected the conversation we had. Like most executives on AIM, he is probably more used to the anodyne questioning of some other websites we could mention - “so then Mr Carroll on a scale of 1 to 10, with 10 being the best, how would you rate your project? 9, 10 or 11?”

Today’s RNS from Mosman Oil & Gas (MSMN) isn’t a helpful one to quell the growing hysteria around this stock. The company has informed the market that the “petrophysical analysis from its third party consultants including SRK and has determined the oil encountered in the Cobden Limestone at Cross Roads-1 meets the definition of a discovery in accordance with the New Zealand ("NZ") legislation”. This is the second “discovery” at Cross Roads-1 (the first being the “total potential pay of 17 metres” in the Eight Mile formation) and the share price has jumped 8.5p to 35.1p (last seen), valuing Mosman at £27.4million. This is crazy, when you consider key details are either not clearly explained in Mosman’s announcement or are missing entirely.

As sure as night follows day, Mosman Oil & Gas (MSMN) conducted a deeply discounted placement this morning, at 23p. If nothing else, the wild run Mosman has been on is another indicator of life returning to the AIM resource sector, for better or worse. On a fundamental basis it is very hard to make a case for owning Mosman, but this is AIM. What the hell do fundamentals matter?
