Yesterday i was in Manchester and braving its slums albeit with Brokerman Dan providing security was heroic. For that, if not for the planned 32 mile walk with Dan how about you give a tenner to Woodlarks HERE. On the podcast I cover Optibiotix (OPTI), another victim of Julie "lingerie on expenses" Meyer MBE on the phone, Stobart (STOB), FairFx (FFX), Mothercare (MTC) and - with not too much sniggering - the flop at me-too Viagra play N4 Pharma (N4P)

You don't care what I say today, all you care about is the football. Indeed: come on Eng-er-land. I reflect briefly on the soccer, then cover Mrs May's Brexit sell out, why I'm not voting for the party of the useless and treacherous old hag again, and finally discuss the idea that British companies should not be bought by "dirty foreigner", ref Inmarsat (ISAT). I cover Optibiotix (OPTI) en passant and am glad that thanks to the incredible generosity of Nick Leslau, myself and Brokerman Dan have now raised £13,000 - 65% of our target - for Woodlarks ahead of the 28 July charity walk. Check Nick's donation and perhaps give a tenner yourself HERE.

The fat Lady arrives at Nighthawk (HAWK) and looks to be in the wings at Nature Group (NGR) while new problems emerge at Imaginatik (IMTK) - a former Rob Terry fave but I speculate on bigger worries that the Quindell fraudster faces - and at Management Consulting (MMC).

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.

A pattern of such spoofs and a subsequent placing has continued. Will I get an apology? I also look at lessons from Flybe (FLYB) and the non bid, at Fevertree (FEVR) director share sales, at UK Oil & Gas (UKOG) which is also spoofing, 13 Energy (13E) - "you say it best when you say nothing at all " - R Keating.

But Steve O' Hara of Optibiotix (OPTI) comes, I believe, across well and explains the import of recent announcements.

Paul Scott shows an extremer double standard in describing this as "nudge, nudge wink, wink" - I just called it talking to a company which is what anyone sensible would do. I explain why Scott is talking cock and applying double standards HERE. As for Optibiotix, do your maths listen to the whbole interview ( the last 30 seconds are very interesting), the shares are incredibly cheap at 62p offer and will go to well over 100p this year if half of what O'Hara says in this interview comes good.

I start with the BMR (BMR) scandal where i am an angry small shareholder. The problem is that this is not an isolated incident, I look at Telit (TCM), MySquar (MYSQ) and Sefton (SER) where crime really did pay. Then I look at an Optibiotix (OPTI) share sale and indicate at what point i will, again, be buying. I look at a share sale in BCA Marketplace (BCA) and why that is such a massive red flag compounding the thesis explained in my major report of last Autumn, The Big Short.

I look in real detail at the trading statement at Reach4Entertainment (R4E) where I am a shareholder, at Woodford dog RM2 (RM2) which is going on a one way trip to the vets in a fortnight and also at Woodford Patient Capital Trust (WPCT). Post bearcast it announced its NAV at 85.93p which means gearing must surely be through the 20% barrier. I also look at Optibiotix (OPTI) and the warrant exercise issue.

Shares in Optibiotix (OPTI) hit 60.5p mid at one point Wednesday but closed at 61p-63p. Having retipped this as a buy in the low seventies and at up to 80p we have received a number of emails saying "should we sell?" Some were citing savants on the LSE Bulletin Board who make dire predictions and others were asking what is wrong?

This morning NWOGaction, the shareholder action group for New World Oil & Gas (NEW), announced its support for Adam Reynolds and his team’s bid for election to the board, at the forthcoming AGM. This is an exciting turn of events for New World’s long-suffering shareholders. It promises to set this stricken company on a much more positive path, led by the value creating force behind the recent flyaway successes of Optibiotix (OPTI) and Premaitha Health (NIPT). Reynolds and his experienced team of turnaround specialists have identified a project and new executive management for New World, in the booming Med Tech space. Now all shareholders have to do is vote in favour of this radical change in direction.

The numbers for the six months to May 31 from Optibiotix (OPTI), the AIM listed developer of compounds to tackle obesity, high cholesterol and diabetes matter far less than the supporting text. If you can buy at 40.5p or below (the spread is now 39-40.5p) do so as we see a September whoosh for the shares.

Verdes Management (VMP) has since its AIM admission in 2005 been a total dog. Different management teams have run different models and all have ended in failure. The last chump in charge was Dave Breith of Coms (COMS) infamy. But that is all changing. The shares YESTERDAY weere consolidated and relisted following a RTO by React (REAT) - the company's new name as of today. A refinancing was completed at 1.68p. The shares are a buy at up to 2p with a target to sell of 3.3p before the autumn is too well progressed.

My last bearcast from the Greek Hovel starts with the UK Oil & Gas and Horse Hill mob suspensions. Then onto Rosslyn Data and a warning for Charles Clark, but it is not about his career in porn. Then I look at the profits warning from Scicys and what it means for others and then a discussion about running open ended funds and the problems Dave Newton has at Heliium, this covers Coms, Verdes, Optibiotix and Gable.

The largest holding that Real Man has in its portfolio is Optibiotix (OPTI). At 34.5p we are, quite amazingly, looking at a 300% profit (plus warrants) on our initial investment. The size of the holding is, I admit, a trifle frightening as are the gains. But although we have advised readers to bank gains we are not doing that ourselves. Are we mad? I think not.

As I noted in my ten macro themes for 2015 article (HERE) the analysis that Steve Moore and I serve up is bottom up – that is to say company specific – not so much macro driven. But the odd macro think session establishes useful tramlines for the investment process. My first, second and third share tips for 2015 are already live and so onto Number 4.

We tipped shares in Optiobiotix (LSE:OPTI) just a few months ago at a 9p offer. Knock me down with a feather they closed Friday at 20.75p-21.25p. But the fun is not over yet. We urged you strongly a week ago to buy at up to our limit buy price of 15p as the last chance to get in cheap. We hope that advice was taken even if you ignored the original tip.

Heck, I am biased, we own these shares, but I thought that the presentation by Steve O'Hara and Adam Reynolds of Optiobiotix (OPTI) at the second ShareProphets seminar was pretty compelling.

I am feeling rather virtuous today. Just a Greek salad and a coke to eat and I have already done one hour’s manual labour in the fields. I am just off for another stint now.
