There comes a moment in every Agatha Christie novel when Poirot scolds himself for being so blind to the obvious. I just wonder if for myself and Telit (TCM) that moment was late last night. That the CEO was a fraudster fugitive from justice when he floated Telit is one matter, the crminal investigations in Italy are another but the heart of the issue is the dire financials & possible behaviour of the Norfolk variety. In case you missed it, I refer you to note 5.2 of the most recent interims published August 7.

The trouble with Norfolk's is that in the end they run out of other people's money. And that brings us to MySQUAR (MYSQ) the sort of company which, even by the lowly standards of the AIM Casino, is a dog. A Source has been on the trombone and says...

For the second time in a week we have seen share options exercised at AIM listed Norfolk MySQUAR (MYSQ) - this time it is 1.875 million warrants exercised at 5.5p which will add £103,125 to the coffers. that is kind of handy for this cash guzzler which is close to running on fumes. But this is a spoof.

The house broker on AIM earns its money not from investors but from corporates. It banks £2-4,000 a month as a retainer and then makes 5% commission on any funds it raises. Lovely jubbly, coke and hookers all round. Of course that makes its research less than impartial. Prostitutes do not tell their clients that they have a small dick and so you would not expect Arden Partners to conclude that shares in Mercantile Ports & Logistics (MPL) are worthless crap, which they are. Welcome to a strong contender for the worst research note of the year to date.

I wish Andrew Monk a happy wedding anniversary today but surely his fragrant wife should have got time off for good behaviour. But Monk is wrong on Aquatic Foods (AFG) it is a Norfolk, its interims out today make that 100% clear and I explain why. I note the suspension of Asian Citrus (ACHL) and I pose a new challenge to LGO Energy (LGO) about output and sales numbers which really do not add up. I look at RapidCloud (RCI) whose interims suggest a terminal conclusion and Zincox (ZOX) where a pompous chairman seems in denial about the grim outcome that lies ahead.

Such is the current febrile state of the markets that even China scams are being bid up with gusto. Take Mayair (MAYA), which purports to sell clean air filters in China and floated on AIM in May last year at 130p. Its shares, having gone down in a straight line to 40p (as insider selling outweighed the constant barrage of good news that these companies always come out with) have doubled to 84p in the last month as summer madness takes hold. The company itself was forced yesterday to say there is no reason for the rise. Indeed.

And there is more to come. On the bull tack I look at Independent Oil & Gas (IOG). Yes I did say bull tack!

Indeed, you should go down to the world’s local bank (HSBC) and get a mega-loan and buy the entire company for it is trading on a market capitalisation of £11.1 million (source: ADVFN) and yet has a cash pile of £46 million. Heck: shut down the business (except the Chinese authorities have already done that, for a month) and walk away with £35 million profit?

AIM-listed China Companies with characteristic Red Flags seem to be coming thick and fast as featured articles here on ShareProphets. Tom Winnifrith was on record some time ago saying that any Chinese company listed on AIM was an automatic bargepole, and with good reason. We’ve had Naibu (NBU) and Sorbic International (SORB) already given their marching orders by AIM, after spending over month looking for a new Nomad. Indeed, with Naibu’s CEO jailed and evidence that the cash it claimed to have was all fiction, and Sorbic’s rather more straightforward situation that the CEO ran off with the cash and the assets (and the Chinese authorities seem reluctant to intervene) it is hard to avoid the conclusion that these were just plain, abject frauds from top to bottom.

I am sorry to say this but the research note published this morning by my friend (well he used to be) Simon “Wincey Willis of Daniel Stewart on China Chaintek (CTEK) is a total disgrace. I assume Wincey has been leaned on to justify what is obviously a fraud because Daniel Stewart is earning such vast fees as Nomad and broker to Chaintek. Wincey is a good and honest man and hence he drops covert hints that he thinks Chaintek is junk but I urge him to stand up to the reality that Chaintek and Naibu are engaged in fraud. He should explicitly tell clients to sell, even if that means that Daniel Stewart fires him. Simon do not sell your soul in this way.

Naibu is a fraud. My target price is 0p and this stock will lose its Aim listing soon. It could be very soon.
