Frontera – workover news but the only thing it really wants to pump is the share price as the cash crisis deepens

Published 57 days ago

Frontera Resources (FRR) is, as you know, completely out of cash, drowning in debt and facing two pieces of litigation either of which could see it lose all its assets, D-day in one case could be within a week. In such a bleak position there is only one thing to do: Issue a spurious release and then get the whore blogger Malcolm Graham Wood to pump the shares to try to get a bucket shop discounted placing away. But surely shareholders in this company are not that stupid? Er....

David Lenigas tweets on Angus Energy ahead of placing at 9p today

Published 77 days ago

Of course David Lenigas is not on the board of Angus Energy (ANGS) and thus had no idea at all that a heavily discounted placing at 9p would be announced today. And thus his aggressive pumping of the stock on twitter last week, as you can see below, is just another remarkable coincidence. Just like this one ahead of the last UK Oil & Gas (UKOG) bailout placing.  Big Dave.., an AIM casino leopard who never changes his spots.

Sosandar – after the pump the dump and an old chestnut of an excuse

Published 104 days ago

Broker Shore Cap insisted that shares in Sosandar (SOS) were worth 50p. Thirsty Paul Scott gushed about how they were potentially worth far more and after such massive pumping the stock hit the mid forties at which point it was valued at around thirty times historic sales. Insanity. And then the shares started sliding, falling from 44p at the start of this month to 36p yesterday. That must have been enough to turn anyone to drink. Whatever could have been happening… oh yes…

After the David Lenigas twitter pump on Angus Energy...guess what happened next?

Published 173 days ago

The leopard does not change its spots. Pumping UK Oil & Gas (UKOG) hard as it was trying to arrange a bailout placing is bad enough. But now we come to Angus Energy (ANGS) another Horse Hill play and one where the CEO has just "been resigned" in disgrace following revelations HERE. But Big Dave has, as you can see below, been pumping its shares hard on twitter. What happens after a Big Dave pump?

Fake news and a Twitter pump precede Bellzone Mining placing - pure coincidence of course!

Published 194 days ago

Anyone who follows the world of AIM on bulletin boards and Twitter will have noticed a lot of sudden excitement in Bellzone Mining (BZM) yesterday, with the share price rocketing and closing at around 0.9p, but unfortunately some were posting false news. Was that deliberate market abuse?

The future looks bleak for Ferrum Crescent - another placing isn't far from being needed!

Published 491 days ago

The lower end of the AIM market can be surprisingly predictable at times, especially when it comes to raising funds, so it often amazes me how many private investors get caught out when such news comes. That would certainly seem to have been the case with the recent fundraising activity at Ferrum Crescent (FCR) and the events leading up to that, even if many on the bulletin boards were in denial of what was coming.

Arian Silver, Pump, Dump, Feed the Board, Pump, Dump, Rinse & Repeat

Published 558 days ago

Our very own Gary Newman nailed this spot on at the weekend flagging up that an almighty pump in Arian Silver (AGQ) was underway. Our sober, harsh but fair coverage contrasts well with the really sordid rampfest that saw the shares pushed ahead ahead of a placing today raising £600,000 at just 0.5p.

Magnolia Petroleum - why Rita Whittingham must be fired Part 3 - duping mug punters

Published 583 days ago

Earlier today i showed how Magnolia Petroleum (MAGP) has become a gravy train not just for CEO, not so lovely Rita Whittingham, but for her extended family as well. But when the operations are not generating cash how to fund the gravy train? Shimples: pump the stock with misleading RNS statements and do a discounted placing. Rinse and repeat. Want an example (for there are many)? Here goes.

Stuttard’s Septic Seven May update: another one bites the dust (Taihua 'where’s the website gone now' plc)

Published 618 days ago

Marcus Stuttard, head of AIM and the oxymorons of AIM Regulation, had a specially selected and beautifully diversified portfolio of AIM stocks chosen by ShareProphets back at the end of last September so that he could demonstrate his faith in the regulatory set-up of the market he runs. Naturally, there was nothing at all wrong with any of the companies picked: they were all trading on the Casino as normal, so we were just plain wrong to be Red Flagging them all for one reason or another.  We were just so, so wrong that……

MySQUAR: A classic Pump and Dump

Published 651 days ago

I looked at MySQUAR (MYSQ) recently commenting on the apparent conflict between the broker, Beaufort Securities, and its lender, Sandabel Capital (HERE). The good news is that the Sandabel deal has now come to an end. The less good news is that the average PI here has just been played like a fiddle with a classic pump and dump and it is worth taking a closer look.

The Joke valuation that is Bushveld Minerals

Published 671 days ago

I explained some time ago why I thought that the management of Bushveld Minerals (BMN) had treated retail investors with clear contempt and why that made the stock uninvestable. In the short term this can go anywhere, in the long run shares in companies run by scumbags usually head south. I wake up and find that the shares are now 7p and so - with a lot of "assistance" from a great broker we can note.

I started writing this article on Xtract Resources (XTR) yesterday morning and was going to comment on how sentiment was turning and Colin Bird’s straightforward approach in recent RNS’s was to be applauded and then – WHAM - a placing RNS from hell and I’ve had to rewrite the whole piece.

Photo Article: Golden Saint talks bollocks as it serves up another bailout placing

Published 796 days ago

Christ I am naive. There was I thinking that all the twitter and Bulletin Board ramping during the past two weeks was there to allow disgraced PR genius Steffi to dump her few remaining shares in this worthless piece of Turkish. Oh no. Silly me. It was a pump before a different sort of dump. A bail-out placing dump. The release is a hoot. It can only have been written by a compulsive liar. Remind me: who does the PR again?

Frontera Resources – After the pump…….

Published 812 days ago

Having pumped up the share price at the start of last week with yet another ramptastic operations update, all rather predictably comes the dump. This morning AIM-listed Frontera Resources (FRR) announced the draw-down of another £382,550 under a Standby Equity Distribution Agreement (SEDA) – for which read death spiral – with YA II PN Ltd (for which read Yorkville). Another wheelbarrow-load of confetti, 402,684,211 shares, has been issued at 0.095p per share. We are told this will be used to advance work programs of the Company.

Two positive-looking RNSs, one each on 9 Feb and 16 Feb saw shares in AIM-listed ValiRx (VAL) shifting about sharply. On 9 Feb the shares shot up from a previous close of 15p and peaking at 18.25p before topping out at 21p the following day. Then Tuesday's news saw the shares close down at 13.25.

Published 1660 days ago

Another day and another “contract win” announced by Avanti Communications (AVN) – natch the value is undisclosed. Friday’s Victor Meldrew “contract win” was – as I explained HERE – very peculiar indeed. And the directors are all making small share purchases. Its ramp ramp ramp time because Avanti desperately needs to do a placing.
