Bould short squeeze rumours are a load of rubbish designed to pump the share price!

Published 1 day ago

There’s nothing like talk of a short squeeze to get private investors predicting all sorts of crazy figures and scenarios – when the reality is that it is normally nothing more than just a rumour designed to pump the share price, and even if true it would be more likely to result in suspension of trading for a disorderly market, than a huge rise in the share price.

Atalaya remains a buy after recent updates

Published 1 day ago

If you want exposure to copper and are looking to invest in an earlier stage outfit that is already in production, then your choice of UK listed companies is actually fairly limited. The majority are either still at the exploration/development phase, or are large FTSE listed miners, and in many cases copper is just one of many metals that are being produced, with the odd exception...

Unless actual contracts land quickly, Eqtec will soon be drowning in debt

Published 10 days ago

Smaller companies often offer promises of imminent revenue streams which cause upward spikes in the share price, but for any longer term appreciation in value they need to actually deliver on the expectations of their shareholders. Currently that would definitely seem to be the case with Eqtec (EQT), which I have been bearish on since the share price was between 1.26p and up to 1.57p, and private investors in this gasification to energy company were quick to point out how wrong I was when there was a brief spike in the share price shortly after my initial coverage at the lower end of that range. So, it has really come as much of a surprise to me that the share price has steadily declined over the few months since then and it now trades at around the 0.84p level to buy...

Why Coro Energy was my Dragon's Den pick

Published 14 days ago

Coro Energy (CORO) was my pick this year during the Dragon’s Den session I was involved in at the UK Investor Show, and I also hold a small position here myself from around the current share price. Like many smaller companies in the oil and gas sector, it is an investment that I class as being speculative, hence not risking huge amounts of money in it at this stage – but there is also a lot of potential upside...

Nudge, Nudge, Winx, Winx - all sorts of games were played around this drill!

Published 36 days ago

The drilling and testing of the Winx-1 well on the North Slope, in Alaska, has been so farcical that it would almost be comical if it wasn’t for the fact that vast sums of money have been lost as a result of it. As is the norm with this type of exploration drill, social media has been awash with all sorts of rumours, and self-proclaimed drilling/reservoir engineers seem to have sprung out of nowhere armed with diagrams to show why it would be a huge find and was even better than some of the existing discoveries in the region – in reality though, many of the ‘experts’ are online avatars and could just as easily be someone who works down the local chippie and their actual experience of oil involves a deep fat fryer!...

Further short term dips in Avesoro Resources will offer a good buying opportunity

SDX Energy should perform well in 2019 and beyond - buy

Published 43 days ago

SDX Energy (SDX) seems to be one of those AIM natural resources companies that has largely been forgotten about by private investors, but it has an awful lot going on over the coming 12 months, and beyond, and if even some of what it has scheduled goes to plan, then I would expect the shares to trade a lot higher...

Catenae Innovation – placing and warrant issue, still a buy here

Time to buy Jersey Oil and Gas ahead of the Verbier appraisal

Published 53 days ago

For junior resource companies which aren’t actually producing anything yet, larger movements in the share price are usually dictated by newsflow relating to the operational side of things, rather than by fluctuations in commodity prices. Jersey Oil and Gas (JOG) has gone through a period where not a lot has been happening drilling-wise, and as a result it has seen its share price bouncing around within a fairly tight range for this sort of stock...

Strategic Minerals copper mine is due to come online soon - speculative buy

Major blow to Edenville Energy's coal-to-power plans

Why I still wouldn't invest in GCM shares even after its deal with PowerChina

Investors in GCM Resources (GCM) seem to be shocked that recent news hasn’t caused the share price to rise much higher, and barring a very brief spike immediately after news of a deal landed, it has settled back to around the level that it was trading at before the RNS dropped. The news that has got everyone invested in this Bangladeshi coal miner so excited is a joint venture agreement with a huge government owned entity called PowerChina, which is involved in coal fired power plants and is a name that some will be familiar with as it also has similar deals in place with other small mining companies in various parts of Africa as well...

Published 79 days ago

PCG Entertainment (PCGE) has seen its share price slump over the past few months but, despite there having been a number of large transactions, there have been no notifications of any changes to the significant shareholdings in the company. Now I find this very strange, given that there have been several sells that have amounted to around 1% of the shares in issue, along with numerous others around the 0.5% level, and during December and January there were more than 233 million shares traded in total – of the 1.244 billion in issue...

KAZ Minerals has the potential to become a copper mining giant in the future

Published 87 days ago

After a strong performance during the first half of 2018, copper has been weak and is currently trading at close to its lowest levels since mid-2017. Having hit peaks of more than $7,200/t last June it is now around the $6,000/t area, and although an improvement on the $5,800/t level it started the year at, I would hardly call this slight resurgence a proper bounce just yet. But I do think that is going to come as the metal is too important to stay at these levels for long, especially in light of the fact that many analysts are forecasting a supply deficit in the coming years due to the increasing use of the metal – as I’ve mentioned in the past, electric vehicles will be a factor and use far more wiring than the cars that are currently in common use...

Revolution Bars Group has long term potential despite the current blip in performance

Published 130 days ago

Revolution Bars Group (RBG) is a company that caught my eye a while back, but at the time it was for the wrong reasons as I’d noticed that the share price seemed to be on a steady downwards trajectory. In terms of this, nothing has really changed and it has been making new lows around the 100p area, losing around a third of its value in the past year – which included a brief spike to around 175p in January. This is one where there could be an argument for waiting for the trend to turn positive, if indeed it does from here, but with the market cap back around the £50 million level I can see value in buying here...

Ariana – should we be cynical? I think not…

AIM-listed Turkish gold producer Ariana (AAU) has seen its share price move a fair bit over the past few days. The shares have been bumping along the bottom at around 1.25p for a while and even dropped to almost 1.1p last month. Now, with a very positive update from its Kiziltepe plant at the Red Rabbit project in Eastern Turkey (and terrific looking financials), a positive (house) Broker note, exploration news and an investor evening in the last few days, the shares are up at a much healthier-looking (roughly) 1.425p, if a tad volatile (they’ve been up to 1.525p and down to 1.375p today). So should we be cynical and expect a placing?

IQE Clarifies profits warning: as predicted the “crowded bear trade” supports share price (for now)

Published 157 days ago

I noted last night in my bonus bearcast that the real short position in IQE was, whatever the FCA says, probably well North of 20% and that as bears used the profits warning as a reason to close out what is clearly a “crowded trade” this would provide some share price support. And so it has come to pass.  The shares are up 4p at 71p having fallen 29p in late trade Monday. IQE has also clarified its profits warning and that has offered some comfort. It won’t last. You see it is all about cash.

Glencore looks too cheap - I can see why a share buyback is ongoing

A lot of AIM investors seem to view main market larger companies as being boring as you aren’t ever likely to multiply your capital overnight, but conversely it is unlikely that you will ever lose the lot either. By ignoring the larger companies, especially in the mining and oil sectors, you are potentially missing out on some very good gains, and with relatively low risk to your capital as these businesses tend to be so well diversified that any single event is unlikely to cause a complete share price collapse.

The fraud MySquar gets bailout placing away at just 0.35p – the end is nigh

Back in July 2017 MySquar (MYSQ) misled investors massively about its current trading and thus committed blatant securities fraud in raising £1.2 million  at 3.75p. It stated then that it “does not expect to require additional funds for current operations.” That was a lie. Since then it has raised millions via death spiral funding but with liquidity drying up and the share price tanking it has now raised just £600,000 gross at a pathetic 0.35p. Ouch. It gets worse.

Cairn Energy will see rapid production growth in the coming years - buy

Published 171 days ago

A brief look at Cairn Energy (CNE) would leave many wondering how on earth the company can be worth its current market cap of more than £1.15 billion. Especially when you consider that although it is an oil producer, in H1 2018 it only averaged 14,400boepd, and there are many others on the market producing those sort of quantities with much lower market valuations. What you would be missing though is the fact that this company has huge future growth potential, both from increased production from its existing Kracken and Catcher operations in the North Sea, but far more importantly from the future development of the SNE field in Senegal and Nova in Norway.

A few weeks ago I covered the fact that Bellzone Mining (BZM) looked to be in serious trouble, and following recent developments it looks in an even worse state now. This share has been a recent favourite of the pump and dump crews, as the uncertainty over its future has caused the share price to be incredibly volatile and no doubt some will have made money from these daily fluctuations. But what really amazes me is that so many PIs seem willing to buy into a share which already had a very high chance of failure, and even more so now.

I would imagine that most Lionsgold (LION) holders were somewhat less than impressed when news came at the end of last week that its shares were being cancelled.

Neil Ricketts of Versarien in twitter and share price meltdown

Published 180 days ago

As you know, since Versarien (VRS) supplies the Israeli Defence Forces and thus helps protect the only democracy in the Middle East, it can do no wrong in my eyes. Thus I note, with some concern, the increasingly odd reaction of boss Neil Ricketts as the shares continue to slide.

I find it hard to understand why SOCO International is so cheap - buy

Published 183 days ago

Sometimes it is hard to fathom why a company with strong fundamentals continues to be unloved by the market, and for me that is very much the case with SOCO International (SIA) at the moment, and has been for some time now. Lately the share price has slipped and is now trading at around the 88p level, and whilst it has bounced around 10% from the recent low of 80p that we saw, it still seems incredibly cheap at a market cap of just over £300 million, especially when you consider the current strength in oil prices.

Norcros - first-half trading update, looks to remain good value

Five large cap stocks I would buy now for capital growth despite market volatility

Published 186 days ago

Well what a last week with fear - for once in recent years - in ascendancy and lots of 'worst week since February' statistics being quoted.  As Tom Winnifrith noted in a recent bearcast the big honking issue is debt around the world, although tactically you can throw in a supporting cast of world trade angst, a bit of inflation bubbling up and a firm US dollar.  

Frontera: More spoofing, more company destroying litigation, no more cash – the Fat lady is warming up

Published 188 days ago

The gyrations in the share price of Frontera Resources (FRR) caused by its latest lie-packed City presentation have forced the company to put out a statement and it makes for truly grim reading. This company is worth 0p per share and in the current climate it may well get there before too long.

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

Published 190 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…

Bluejay, spoof share purchases, more disgusting behaviour & a blatant lie from disgraced SP Angel and the questions mount

This morning BlueJay Mining (JAY) announced that three directors had bought shares.  That is a spoof. The amounts are not material and the aim is to try and arrest the share price slide. If anything such spoofing is itself another reason to sell. It gets worse…

BlueJay Mining & the looming date with destiny

Published 196 days ago

Yesterday saw yet another decline in the share price of Blue Jay Mining (JAY) and that has continued this morning. This is perhaps the biggest small cap mining promote seen in recent years but reality is starting to dawn on the mug punters as they consider the options the company now has going into 2019 absent an offtake agreement, EIA & SIA approval and the all important Exploitation licence.

Tlou Energy has the ingredients in place to be successful - speculative long-term buy

Published 196 days ago

In Africa things always tend to take far longer than people expect, and even more so when it comes to anything in the natural resources sector. Interest in, and the share price of, Tlou Energy (TLOU) seems to have waned and I think that has largely been as a result of some having far too optimistic timescales with regards to the company’s coal bed methane project at Lesedi, in Botswana.

Things look very bleak for Bellzone Mining

Published 196 days ago

It never ceases to amaze me how much of a gamble some PIs will take with their money, even when the company itself has warned that it is in real trouble and it is almost impossible to see a way out of a bad situation which would result in a higher share price.

SP Angel’s Zac Phillips wrong on Frontera as it prepares for another lie-fest on October 4

As it tries to stop its share price collapsing ahead of its much needed bailout refinancing, Frontera Resources (FRR) has announced another lie-fest, or as it terms it “shareholder update meeting followed by Q&A” on October 4. The City’s top oil analyst Zac Phillips of SP Angel is damning on this POS in his morning email but gets it 100% wrong when he says there is “Only 1 question.”

Atalya offers good exposure to copper plus has plenty of growth potential

Spanish copper miner Atalya Mining (ATYM) has seen its share price drop back recently, but then the situation has been similar on most producers in this sector and has come as a result of weakness in the commodity price rather than anything company specific.

Sosandar – in two minds as we approach the AGM

Published 217 days ago

Shareholders in AIM-listed Adam Reynolds stable Sosandar (SOS) have an AGM to look forward to next Tuesday, and I am very hopeful that a trading update will accompany proceedings. At the last count the company reported quarter on quarter growth of 70-odd percent – a remarkable achievement, even for a near start-up. The market is clearly hoping for more of the same, although I’m not sure that rate of growth will have been repeated over the summer holidays. But it has been growing like mad – and we loyal shareholders have done very well.

I’m a big fan of Aston Martin cars and it is one of the most famous brands from the UK, but I can’t see myself rushing to buy shares when the IPO takes place in early October. More details on exactly how the floatation will be structured should become available when the car maker publishes a prospectus around September 20, but it is expected that it will be seeking a valuation of around £5 billion.

The share price action is telling you that folks already know the worst – shareholders have to bail it out again or it will be going down well before the Christmas decorations go up.

I would continue to avoid Koovs until it proves that it can turn the business around

Published 219 days ago

I came in for a fair bit of criticism when I covered Indian fashion retailer Koovs (KOOV) negatively and suggested it was a sell or avoid back at the start of July. Since then the share price has pretty much halved from the 20p level that it was trading at, so I feel that my criticism of the company was justified, and my view has been vindicated – hopefully some of you who have read my articles and were holding at the time also saved yourselves from seeing the value of your investment halve. A number of people have been asking me what my view is of the company now that the share price has dropped back to around 10.6p to buy, so I felt that it was time to take another look.

EVR Holdings - a long way from justifying its current valuation?

Block Energy has interesting assets and is funded - speculative buy

Published 276 days ago

These days it often seems to be the case that if you are interested in a new IPO, it is better to wait until that company has listed and the dust has settled, as often you will get a chance to buy in cheaper than those taking part in the initial fundraise. Block Energy (BLOE) looks to be one such outfit and the timing of its listing looks good, with the oil sector showing strength, plus there is plenty of potential from gas as well.

Air Partner will recover from its accounting problems - buy

Published 301 days ago

The market doesn’t respond well to any announcements of accounting problems, and the share price of any company releasing such news tends to get hammered. In some cases the resulting drop is justified, but there are also plenty of occasions where there appears to have been a massive over-reaction and that can present a buying opportunity, as long as the underlying fundamentals of the business haven’t changed and it is just a one-off error or omission that won’t negatively impact the company going forwards.

Mobile Streams faces an uphill battle - just to avoid bankruptcy

Echo Energy accelerates its operations in Argentina

Published 325 days ago

Often when a smaller AIM company operating in the natural resources sector announces a placing it ends up being bad news for those currently invested, but there are also cases where the money is being sought in order to accelerate operations. Of course, the company still ultimately needs to deliver and for the work that the money is being raised for to be successful, but I would certainly rather see this than a company that is sitting around doing nothing and burning through cash whilst its directors pocket a nice salary.

RockRose Energy makes yet another acquisition and shows that it means business

Why I might be prepared to give Powerhouse Energy another chance

Powerhouse Energy (PHE) is a company which I have previously been very negative on, and rightly so given its performance over the past few years. The company specialises in waste-to-energy production, either in the form of generating electricity or producing hydrogen for fuel cells, but in the past its gasification technology has failed to really take off in the way that investors had hoped.

Cluff Natural Resources looks interesting as attention returns to the North Sea

Published 359 days ago

Some positive sentiment finally seems to be returning to UK offshore oil and gas companies, and Cluff Natural Resources (CLNR) could be in a position to benefit from that. Things have been pretty dire for the North Sea focused company, and although its assets revolve around gas, which has performed badly in comparison to oil of late, any renewed interest in the area should be of benefit.

I'm surprised at the current lack of interest in Savannah Petroleum

Published 364 days ago

Given the rise in oil price that we’ve seen over the past week or so, and the highest levels that it has been at in quite some time, I’m a little surprised to see Savannah Petroleum (SAVP) still languishing at around the 12-month low. With a market cap of nearly £230 million it isn’t as likely to see such large movements as you get on the AIM micro caps, but it is still small enough that I would expect the higher commodity price to have had some impact, given that it produces significant amounts of oil already.

Ascent looks like it is about to begin another descent!

Ascent Resources (AST) has hardly exactly lived up to its name in recent times, as it has been on a steady downwards trajectory for some time now. There's now been an RNS advising of a strategic review and a formal sale process for the company being initiated. Given its situation, I certainly wasn’t expecting the market to take the news particularly well - but the share price rocketed and even as I write this, it is currently 1.1p to buy - up more than 22% on the prior close.

Asiamet Resources continues to make good progress and remains a long-term hold

Published 388 days ago

When it comes to AIM mining companies, the majority of them will fail dismally and won’t even come close to producing anything or selling on their ‘assets’, but occasionally one does come through which looks like it could really make it. Contrary to popular belief, there are actually a few decent mining outfits listed on AIM – including an old favourite of mine which I have covered here a few times in the past, Central Asia Metals (CAML) – and I believe that if it carries on delivering as it has done up until now, then Asiamet Resources (ARS) could soon join that select club.

Crusader Resources IPO should see plenty of interest

Published 402 days ago

Generally, I’m wary of the reasons for companies which are already listed on other exchanges deciding that they want to be dual-listed on the AIM market. This is especially the case when it comes to ASX companies operating in the natural resources sector, as in general the track record for those hasn’t been great, with often very little of substance being achieved despite large sums being raised on AIM. There are exceptions though...

Online Blockchain - does a fashionable name really justify a higher market valuation?

Published 403 days ago

Currently it seems that the mere mention of cryptocurrency or blockchain can drive investors into a frenzy, with people thinking that the new Bitcoin is about to be born, when the actual reality is that most of these companies will ultimately fail. It seems to be a bit of a ruse that is being used at the lower end of AIM, whereby the company announces some sort of involvement in this field, knowing that it will gain some interest as a result.

I admit it: this has been a very poor tip, dating way back to the ShareProphets Christmas/New Year tipfest at the end of 2014 when I offered AIM-listed Scancell (SCLP) at 31.75p. Much of what I was looking for came to pass  - apart, that is, from an offer for the company or one of its cancer-busting platforms. And a few things went wrong.

Jersey Oil and Gas is worth a look before it drills Verbier this summer

Jersey Oil and Gas (JOG) hasn’t had much luck in the past, having managed to get a decent sized field into production it was subsequently hammered by the collapse in the oil price.

Despite the name change to Maistro, blur looks set to continue to perform badly!

Published 409 days ago

Despite changing its name from blur Group (BLUR) to Maistro (MAIS) at the start of the year, it is hard to see much of a change when it comes to the fortunes of the company. Basically, it offers businesses a platform for the procurement of business services, including marketing and human resources, and on its website it boasts that it has been in the business for over a decade. With that in mind, it doesn’t exactly look great that the company is still racking up heavy losses each year, and looks like it is going to continue doing so for the foreseeable future.

Yet another pump and dump playing out on Nu-Oil and Gas

Nu-Oil and Gas (NUOG) seems to be one of those AIM shares which periodically finds favour with private investors, despite never actually having achieved anything of note other than burning through investors cash over the years.

Even at the current lows it is hard to see value in the People's Operator

What is UK Oil & Gas actually worth? 0.4p? Or am I too generous?

Published 422 days ago

You may say that fundamentals don't matter on the AIM casino. In the short run you are right - sentiment drives share prices. But in due course fundamentals always out and that inherent valuation mismatch is your opportunity to buy cheap, unloved, stock or to short over-promoted crap. And that brings us to UK Oil & Gas (UKOG), now just 1.375p after yesterday's disastrous news from Broadford Bridge. So what is it really worth?

Buy the dips on Cairn Energy

Published 424 days ago

Cairn Energy (CNE) is one of a number of oil producers which look to be unloved by the market currently, but I would expect that to change in the future. In recent years the company has had impressive amounts of reserves on its book, but has now moved to the stage where it is producing from several of those fields, and with more to come in the near future.

Mosman Oil & Gas - the Pump & Dump, naughty naughty Zac "the knife" & SP Angel

Confirmation of a merger deal would be great news for SOCO International

Can TalkTalk turn things around?

Published 431 days ago

TalkTalk Telecom Group (TALK) has been having a torrid time recently and has pretty much seen its share price halved since the start of November. It has posted some disappointing results, and given that the slide in share price started just prior to the release of the interims around three months ago, it would seem that such figures weren’t entirely unexpected.

Increased stake in GPA is good news for Parkmead Group: Long Term Buy

Published 435 days ago

I can understand why longer term investors in Parkmead Group (PMG) may be somewhat unimpressed with the performance of the share price recently, but the company itself is continuing to make good progress. I hold shares in the company myself, and whilst the share price has generally been trading in the mid-30p to low-40p range, in spite of the strength that the oil price has been showing in recent months, I’m happy to remain invested and see how things unfold in the coming months and years.

As a reminder, Capita has scrapped its dividend. Yet on 19 January Nomates opined:

Is Lionsgold really worth £19 million currently?

Published 455 days ago

The rise in shares of Lionsgold (LION) has got the attention of many, and it certainly looked as though news was leaked prior to an RNS later in the day. Having seen the share price dropping steadily of late, it suddenly surged more than 40% on much higher than normal volume. Initially it looked like just another pump, as this share has been very popular with private investors ever since its share price rose by around 500% in December and is very volatile, but then an RNS dropped informing the market that it was making a new investment, and it ended the day up nearly 90% at 4.55p on the ask.

Tri-Star Resources - what is the end game for Odey?

Published 463 days ago

I can see why holders of Tri-Star Resources (TSTR) would be less than impressed with the recent open offer, especially given the huge discount to the share price prior to that. This isn’t a company which I have really followed closely in the past, but the recent large fundraising at a 92% discount to the previous share price, and subsequent approval at the general meeting this week, got my attention.

New acquisition adds to the long term potential of Horizonte - buy

Published 485 days ago

I have been a big fan of Horizonte Minerals (HZM) for some time now, and am even more so following an acquisition announcement. The market didn’t take the news that this AIM listed mining company, with operations in Brazil, had acquired a further nickel-cobalt project particularly well - the shares down by over 6% to 4p on the ask, but I suspect that was largely as a result of an issue of equity coming at the same time, rather than a reflection of what people think of the newly acquired Vermelho project, which Horizonte now owns 100% of.

Sula Iron and Gold switches its focus to cobalt

Published 486 days ago

Sula Iron and Gold (SULA) has been a massive disappointment to investors in recent years, like so many other junior miners on the AIM market. It is also following a similar path to many others before it, in that it is on the verge of changing its name, as well as focussing the business in a different direction, but still within the mining sector.

I am sad to say that Peterhouse appears to be ignoring my generous advice driven by the season of goodwill. Meanwhile the share price is slumping - now just 0.7p to sell - as the broker hits the phones.

Polymetal looks a great buy at the current price

Published 494 days ago

Some investors avoid companies which operate in Russia and the surrounding area, but I believe that they are missing out if they take this approach with Polymetal International (POLY). The FTSE-250 precious metals miner has operations in Russia, Kazakhstan and Armenia and ever since listing has been returning cash to investors via dividends, and from the current share price of around 849p, I can see plenty of scope for capital appreciation as well.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: No Malcolm (Palle) it is 2000 and not 1997 and here's why!

I start with the issue of whether Blockchain bonkers-ness is so 1997 as comrade Malcolm Palle of Coinsilium (COIN) - which we own shares in - says or late 2000. I explain why it is the latter and cite today's bonkers share price move at On Line (ONL). Then it is on to MySqaur (MYSQ), Xaar (XAR) and Bagir (BGR) which is, I think, talking bollocks.

Why Hurricane Energy remains a conviction buy

Hurricane Energy (HUR) remains a favourite of mine amongst the AIM listed companies which have appraised assets and booked reserves, and I think it is one of the few which will make it into production in the near future, and has the potential to grow much larger.

SOCO International share price decline could be close to a reversal

Published 527 days ago

As an investor who has always been a big fan of oil and gas plays in general it is difficult not to focus on that particular sector at the moment, given the recovery that we have been seeing there. Some people may argue that the move has already happened and that oil prices might not go much above the $64 level that we have hit this week, and could well finish the year a fair bit lower – certainly somewhere in the high 50s wouldn’t surprise me, although a lot will revolve around the outcome of the OPEC meeting at the end of the month. Whilst that may be the case with the commodity itself, when it comes to equities many have lagged this commodity correction, and given the share price action of some of them, you could be forgiven for thinking that oil was still down in the doldrums and completely unloved.

Even large, FTSE-100 shares can go through periods where seemingly every piece of news brings about a decline in the share price, and the company seems to be hit by one negative revelation after another.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Another slam dunk lie in the MySquar trading statement - time for correction number 2

Published 547 days ago

Oh dear, oh dear. This is pretty simple maths although clearly beyond the wit of clueless Nomad SP Angel but in this podcast I demonstrate clearly another slam dunk lie in the MySquar (MYSQ) trading statement of last week and corrected version of this week. Time for another correction? But it gets worse. I remind you of what SP Angel needs to establish to show that MySquar only breached AIM Rules rather than committing wholesale fraud (ref July sales) but now suggest that its claims re September comparatives might bear scrutiny as well. And there are some very fishy rumours coming out of Singapore that SP Angel might consider as it decides whether to quit or not.  I move on to cover Paternoster Resources (PRS) after its latest bad news and explain why its NAV is illusory and then ask readers for help in outing which oil & gas stock Cornhill is raising $15 million for today at a discount of 12% to some share price or another.

CityFibre is yet to prove that it can be profitable

Why I'm happy with the Central Asia Metals acquisition

Published 569 days ago

If I’m being completely honest then I have to admit that I was somewhat annoyed when an RNS from Central Asia Metals (CAML) initially landed to say that trading in the shares had been temporarily suspended pending the acquisition of a large asset. That annoyance though was largely driven by a shorter term view, as shares in the company had been doing very well and the price was increasing steadily in the run up to the financial results, which were expected to be good and with yet another high yielding dividend to be paid. Alongside that copper was flying and had just topped the $3.10/lb level.

Serica Energy is on the verge of restarting production - worth a nibble?

Published 571 days ago

When it comes to the AIM resources sector, any sort of delay or news which is perceived to be negative can have a negative effect on the share price which is far from justified. Of course there is a lot of junk on the market and when bad news comes and it inevitably crashes, it is of no real surprise, but there are other companies where a temporary hit to the share price can present a great buying opportunity.

Tom Winnnifrith Bearcast: Purplebricks, the hard numbers - this just does not stack up at all!

I start off with a cheque received for 29p. Then as we see the Purplebricks (PURP) share price start to melt I look at hard maths and explain why the shares will collapse from here. I look at the Rose Petroleum (ROSE) placing, misleading comments from worthless crap Strat Aero (AERO), dismal interims from shamed lifestyle company Magnolia Petroleum (MAGP) and then at Intelligent Energy (IEH) which looks like a zero in waiting. 

Canadian Overseas could be worth the gamble - but only if financing is secured

Canadian Overseas Petroleum (COPL) is a company that I have followed for a while now and recently I have noticed it getting a fair bit of attention again – certainly as much as we’ve seen since the failed drill in Liberia back in late 2016.

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

Published 577 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.

Gulf Keystone is a very different company these days - buy

Published 584 days ago

Gulf Keystone Petroleum (GKP) was one of the most hyped up oil companies that I have ever seen during my time in the markets, and although that all ended in tears, I think it could be worth another look now as it has changed a lot since those days.

CSF Group looks screwed, yet the pump continues!

Then I discuss the underlying business and explain why, to me, it has all the makings of a Globo, not a Quindell,. and why that means that its share price collapsersoonie could be sooner than you think, if banksters HSBC are anywhere close to being on the ball. Enjoy.

While the two of them relax at their luxury Devon Estate, shares in blur have enjoyed a relief rally to 4.75p ( now just 98.5% off their peak) but is that share price spike justified. Like hell it is.

Manx Financial - why is Jim Mellon giving away free money?

Published 626 days ago

The sub scale bank Manx Financial (MFX) admitted yesterday morning that it could do with raising some more capital for regulatory purposes. It had considered a placing but, for some reason, that idea had not flown. But luckily its chairman Jim Mellon had a stack of warrants at 6p outstanding with a deadline for exercise of er...yesterday. With the share price at 8p surely this was a nil brainer for my good friend, the offshore based asset stripper, Mellon?

Watchstone shares plunge to just 97p (bad news for Evil) - but should you bottom fish? No!

Oh dear. Poor old Evil Knievil who has been a perma bull of Watchstone (WTG), the former Quenron (QPP), loftily dismissing claims by Slater & Gordon for £637 million and my analysis as not worth the paper they were writen on. Oh how bullish was the great man, at 141p, just a few weeks ago as he posted his bon mots on a Bulletin Board. The shares have duly plunged to just 97.5p so costing EK and his fellow BB Morons a good packet. Poor Evil. Poor BB Morons.

China fraud Aquatic Foods: crunch time?

Published 634 days ago

ShareProphets AIM-China Filthy Forty play Aquatic Foods (AFG) shares were suspended last month because it couldn’t get its accounts out on time. We were told that this was because of difficulties getting its enormous cash-pile out of China to pay a number of parties whose assistance is required for the finalisation of the audited accounts. For that, we might presume that it includes the audit firm. We were told that the accounts were anticipated to be released in July – and here we are with 6 trading days left. Is it crunch time?

Central Asia Metals looks a great longer term investment in copper

Published 637 days ago

On the AIM market these days it seems as though many would far rather buy into the latest pump and dump on a piece of junk, than invest in a company that is actually running its business properly and making money. The problem with putting your money into junk is that at some point true value normally shines through and the resultant share price crashes can be spectacular.

Oi! Jim Mellon - so how have Plethora shareholders done after that 12.5p all share offer you made?

Published 650 days ago

Back in November 2015, Plethora Solutions (PLE) the AIM listed developer of a treatment for premature ejaculation run by offshore based asset stripper Jim Mellon was almost on its uppers, its cash position was critical and its share price had collapsed. Refinancing would have been impossible so it was announced that Regent Pacific, Mellon's Hong Kong based vehicle which already owned 28% of Plethora having chucked good money after bad, was to launch an all share offer worth 12.5p per share. I warned that was too good to be true HERE. And so let's wind forward 20 months...

Advanced Oncotherapy - the ramps become ever more pathetic - today's reeks of desperation

Published 652 days ago

The stench of desperation at AIM POS Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO) is overpowering.It knows that insolvency looms, that the money is running out fast ( within weeks?) and that a blizzard of share sales from death spiral provider Bracknor will obliterate the share price in the last few days. The board know it. The advisers must know it. But they cannot bring themselves to admit it. The pretence goes on for a while yet. And thus today we have an RNS.

Sylvania Platinum looks to offer great long term value

Published 671 days ago

As long as there is nothing fundamentally wrong with the company itself, then with any leveraged play on commodity prices, which is basically what many producers are, the time to be buying is when the price of the underlying commodity is near the bottom of a cycle. It is usually hard to judge exactly where the bottom is going to be but, when it comes to platinum, I think we are nearing that area.

Amryt at 22.5p worth 62p - new 44 page report

Published 696 days ago

Take a look! European investors are clearly failing to grasp the very significant financial and commercial benefits available for Orphan or Rare Disease drug developers. So much so in fact, that sector-focussed Amryt Pharma (AMYT) finds no quoted peers in London, yet a good basket of NASDAQ-listed comparables are seen to command a significant premium despite mostly being pre-revenue and somewhat earlier in their development. Such anomalies can and, of course, do rapidly correct.

Distil has been a fantastic investment but it may be time to take some profit

Published 708 days ago

Whilst it is true that a lot of the small companies listed on AIM are total junk, there are also some gems amongst them, and I think that Distil (DIS) falls into that category. I first came across this company at the UK Investor Show a couple of years back and it has performed extremely well since I first covered it as a buy here at around 0.8p - the share price is currently nearly 350% higher than it was back then.

Andalas - ramptastic news: in case you forgot it needs £500,000 (which it hasn't got) by Friday

Published 725 days ago

Another day and another ramptastic "Operations Update" from Andalas Energy (ADL). Operations is a bit of a strong word as Andalas does not really have any. It should really have been "Jam Tomorrow" update but then again tomorrow suggests the jam may arrive which, given the track record of this dog, looks unlikely. What will arrive on Friday is a demand for £500,000 and as Andalas has sod all cash and is burning what it has at a rate of knots that is a bit of a problem. Oddly this is not mentioned in today's RNS.

Orosur looks under-valued as gold shows continued strength

Orosur Mining (OMI) certainly isn’t amongst the more popular resource stocks on AIM and trading volumes are often verging on non-existent, but I believe that many are missing an opportunity here as they go chasing rainbows with companies that are years away from production, assuming they ever actually get to that stage!

This won’t have come as a massive surprise as the company announced this proposed acquisition back in January, but some still seemed nervous as the announcement went right down to the wire in terms of Onzima either announcing such a deal (which constitutes a reverse takeover) or being booted off of AIM.

Atalaya Mining offers a speculative play on copper prices rising further

Copper has remained volatile in recent weeks, but is still showing far more strength than we’ve seen in the last couple of years, and I think the upward trend will continue. There are still some concerns about a potential drop in demand, but at the same time we’re not seeing many new copper projects reaching production and I can see further shortages in supply going forwards, barring a worldwide economic meltdown.

My view on Sound Energy's market valuation remain unchanged

Published 751 days ago

I’ve been bearish on the valuation of Sound Energy (SOU) for a while now, and nothing in the updates this week on Tendrara or its final results have changed that opinion. Don’t get me wrong, I can certainly see potential in this company, and it has done well to turn things around and get to where it is currently, but I still think that it is crazy that it is trading at a market cap of well over £500 million at this point in time.

Advanced Oncotherapy - back at 31.5p - is Bracknor dumping or spoofing today? Timber!!!

Published 756 days ago

It is just eight days to the GM of Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO) where shareholders are being asked to approve the issue of gazillions of new shares for the Bracknor death spiral. Since the alternative is going bust within weeks if not days then the result is a gimme although I intend attending - as the owner of 1 share - to ask some searching questions. But the collapse in the share price - the stock is now 31.5p mid, 30p bid tells you there are even bigger issues and that Advanced is, quite possibly toast whatever.

Frontera – well ahead of itself, sell

Published 757 days ago

One has to marvel at how oily serial disappointment AIM-listed Frontera (FRR) has doubled its share price since yesterday. Has it has a takeover? Nope. Has it announced a gusher? Nope. So what has sparked the rise? It seems  that it is in talks over a possible transaction involving a farm-out or joint operation arrangement within the area of its Block 12 holding in Georgia. But is this just a monster spoof?

Lekoil offers plenty of longer term upside

Many AIM oil companies promise the earth, yet in most cases are still no nearer to actually producing anything despite a number of years having passed since their initial discoveries, so it is refreshing to see that there are exceptions to this trend.

Is Bracknor spoofing investors to postpone the collapse of the Advanced Oncotherapy death spiral?

Published 759 days ago

Death spiral provider Bracknor does not buy shares in companies. It loans the desperate, cash at pound of flesh rates which it then converts into shares at discounted rates and flogs to mug punters. That is the classic death spiral model. But to get such a death spiral away it needs a perception of market liquidity and also to avoid a complete short term collapse of the share price. And that brings us to Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO).

This morning AIM-listed Igas Energy (IGAS) updated on its rescue refinancing and it looks to be a done deal.

I have noted before that some death spirals are in fact a decent way for companies to raise cash, cheaper and less share price destructive than a bucket shop placing. But the Bracknor deal announced today by Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO), which had promised non dilutive funding but clearly does not mean a word it says, as I explained here earlier, is a total rotter. It will crater the share price as Bracknor makes a killing. Let me explain why.

Frontera – another “speeding ticket” RNS on the way? Sell.

Published 792 days ago

I think Tom Winnifrith missed a cracking entry for his Dirty Dozen AIM-listed resource stocks whose share prices might head north for no good reason. Certainly, the history of Frontera (FRR) suggests so from its share price performance over the years. Plenty of Red Flags to look at here! This morning the shares are indeed on the rampage (up 168% last seen) in the wake of a board appointment RNS. As we shall see, there seems to be little reason to celebrate that, and with one “know of no reason” RNS already issued this week, I fancy another is on the way.

So I discuss events and share price movements at Amur Minerals (AMC), Arian Silver (AGQ) with its shit head of a PR man  - Nu Oil & Gas (NUOG), Cloudtag (CTAG) and the truly incestuous events at Glenwick (GWIK)

BT accounting problems present a buying opportunity

Published 810 days ago

Whenever you get a big drop in the share price of FTSE350 companies it can represent a buying opportunity, depending of course on what caused the drop in the first place.

LGO Energy in Charts

Published 811 days ago

Bulls of LGO Energy (LGO), like our own pet in house BB loon Wildes, argue that the decline in its share price is entirely down to the falling oil price and nothing whatsoever to do with the fact that it has hopeless assets in Trinidad which, however much cash is thrown at them, cannot produce enough oil to generate free cashflow. I offer you up four charts, sent in by a kind reader, which should show this in pictures, since folks like Wildes find long words a tad confusing.

Kodal Minerals is overdue a big drop in share price

Published 817 days ago

The mere mention of lithium seems to be enough to send the share price soaring on many small AIM companies, until reality hits home and the almost inevitable pullback starts.

Fitbug's latest update must be a joke surely?

Published 819 days ago

If it wasn’t for the fact that ordinary PIs will have lost a lot of money, the announcements and share price movements in Fitbug Holdings (FITB) over the last couple of days would almost be comical!

Distil (DIS) is a company which I have been following closely for a couple of years – as well as holding shares in it myself.

Serica remains a buy despite recent strong gains

Usually when shares in a small AIM company has risen by nearly 300% from the level where I recommended it as a buy, I would be advising to take your profits before the almost inevitable retrace that so many suffer from.

Premier Oil looks to offer more risk than reward at the current share price

Published 826 days ago

Like many producers, Premier Oil (PMO) has been struggling with debt since the oil price crashed a few years back. Some have managed to refinance the debt on their balance sheets, but for Premier the process has been dragging on for far longer than many expected and hasn’t exactly helped sentiment surrounding the company. Following today’s update though it looks as though that is finally about to be resolved.

Golden Saint - just when will the Fat Lady sing? Shares crashing to new lows.

Published 827 days ago

As at 30 June 2016 Golden Saint Resources (GSR) had $722,000 cash and cash equivalents but by mid November the tank was empty and this cash guzzling joke of a company needed to raise another £400,000 gross (call it £350,000 net or $450,000) to keep going. So how much is left? The share price tells you that cash is running out fast (again) - the stock is now at an all time low of 0.025-0.03p valuing this crock at just £1.6 million. That, BTW, is £1.6 million too much.

Telit Communications (TCM) is the most heavily shorted stock on AIM but its share price has proved incredibly resilient. At 275p it is almost up at 2016 year highs and the company is capitalised at £317 million. But you simply cannot defy gravity forever and, as a sell, it is my next share tip of the year.

Why it is often difficult to value small resource companies accurately

Valuing small resource companies can be difficult, and often they will appear to be far cheaper than they really are. The bulletin boards, Twitter, etc are full of people extolling the virtues of the companies that they are invested in and pointing out that they should be worth far more than what the share price currently reflects.

However, I think there’s plenty more to go and would actually be surprised if it still existed by this time next year.

Cloudtag: FFS Cairn how many times will you take it up the arse before you quit? New Letter sent

Published 848 days ago

And so today we have another revelation, this time from Nigel, showing how the rotters at Cloudtag (CTAG) have once again lied to investors in an RNS. I say once again because we have now lost track of the number of times this has happened. And the lies have been told with deliberate purpose: to pump the share price to allow both insiders and those backing placing after placing to dump stock at inflated prices. This is fraud. Yet Nomad Cairn continues to sign off on these lies issued via RNS, to tolerate CEO Amit lying in podcasts and videos to ramp the shares. So I have written once again to Cairn and cc'd in AIM Regulation

LIARS Cloudtag: Compounding One Lie with Another. You are liars, please sue me & if not Nomad Cairn must quit

Published 856 days ago

Cloudtag (CTAG) lied not once but twice by RNS last week so it repeatedly lied to investors. Either Nomad Cairn was in on the lies (plural) in which case it should lose its license or it too was lied too in which case it must resign. For the avoidance of doubt Cloudtag are liars and its CEO Amit Ben Haim signed off on the release. So he is a liar too. I invite both to sue me for libel and if Cairn won't quit it is then complicit in the lying so it can sue me too. Over to you liars... On Wednesday 7th Cloudtag Inc issued the following lie via an RNS titled “Movement in Share Price” 

Long road to recovery for Gulfsands

Published 868 days ago

Hulsey Smith was the chap whose Court filings demonstrated wholesale fraud at Strat Aero (AERO) - filings we published HERE despite Aero's legal attempts to hush them up. So when he settled his claims with a cash and shares payoff - weeks after Strat promised to fight him all the way - you kind of knew he'd dump sooner or later. Why hold shares in a company that commits fraud?

New money is coming in at just 2.17p a share, with a new board, a new business model and a new set of advisers. Against an IPO price of 40p a share back in 2011, China Africa has been a stunningly poor company. Things look set to change for the better, although the maths suggests that the current share price is still well ahead of events.

Rarely does one find good news in results which are released at the last minute, and in the case of Igas the recent record of fairly prompt reporting suggested that leaving the interims to deadline day would be a bad omen. This morning’s numbers and, more to the point, update on the bond situation reads badly – for all the positive spin applied. The numbers aren’t good, a bond covenant breach is expected in the second half of next month and then there is the question of how long it may be before the cash simply runs out.

Heavy fuel oil alternative still has big potential for Quadrise

Published 980 days ago

The recent low oil prices have not only affected companies producing the commodity, but also others which rely on prices being high in order for their own products to be competitive. AIM-listed Quadrise Fuels (QFI) offers a good alternative investment for anyone who is confident that oil prices will ultimately recover, but who is looking for something a bit different to the traditional earlier-stage oil and gas investments around.

ValiRx – Great news as Bracknor death spiral funding package is ditched.

Published 996 days ago

I was delighted to read this morning’s RNS from AIM-listed cancer-buster ValiRx (VAL): it has ditched the value-destroying funding package with Bracknor. About time too, this has been a disaster for the share price ever since it was announced back in March. With the shares having crashed from 12.5p the day before the package was announced to the current 6.875p (last seen) the damage has been horrific.

I have no doubt that some companies in these sectors will be badly hit, especially those whose business is focussed around higher end properties in London, such as Foxtons, but for others I see the recent drops in share price as presenting a buying opportunity, especially when taking a longer term view.

Photo Me's Picture of Health Develops into an Interesting Play.

Hello Share Swappers. I know it’s not been long since I last featured Photo-Me (PHTM). This is the share that Uncle Tom characterises as my favourite. Well, it has made me a lot of money, after a very poor start yonks ago. The reason I return to it so rapidly, is that I am even more convinced that the present share price has room to move upwards. The share reached a high of 185p a few months ago. Then on June 21, three days before Brexit, it suffered. Though like many companies singled out for sudden punishment, the shares were oversold in a panicked situation.

In this bonus bearcast I run through 14 red flags which apply to Avanti and which I managed to jot down in less than ten minutes. Drat!

Advanced Oncotherapy part 2: how broker bullshit cons mug punters so allowing placing after placing

Published 1035 days ago

Beaufort Securities is joint broker to grossly over-ramped Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO). That means a fat retainer and also a good slug of the commission earned for the regular placings this company needs to keep paying its bloated boardroom payroll and other costs. The commission on the May 2015 fundraise at 8p would have been £1 million. Coke & hookers all round! Except for the shareholders, that is, as the share price is now 5.25p and its going to fall further as the next placing is imminent. So how do you ramp a stock ahead of a placing?

What is money, if we're feeling lousy? Pretty worthless. But there is always a possible danger in investing in companies which produce treatments and drugs. I am heavily into quite a few medical pioneers and I sometimes worry that I should not be sleeping at nights.

Still room to grow some more, in my view.

Hello Share Tasters. As far as I can see the share price at Marks and Sparks (MKS) has not moved very much in the last 10 years. There have been some alarming peaks and troughs along the way. But its the overall flatness of the share price that’s the main reason why I sold all my stock some time ago - and won’t be returning. However, I can see the advantage of being on board for all those share shifters who relish tasty dividends. And with the general performance of most shares at the moment, who can blame them?

In that rarest of moves for an AIM-listed company, Berkeley Energia (BKY) has announced new financing from a major shareholder which includes new equity at a premium to the currently prevailing share price. Following several months of due diligence, mining-focused private equity firm Resource Capital Funds is to provide $5 million through a 0.375% net smelter royalty and a further $5 million for new shares at 32p each. The latter compares to a closing high share price since 2013 of 31.75p earlier this month and a pre placing close of 30.25p – these up from 26p at the start of the year and more than 50% on our share tip.

That means its market cap has taken a hit of in the region of £770 million.

Rare Earth Minerals – another way of looking at it?

Published 1239 days ago

Another hat tip to reader Rudyard. Jabba The Hutt, aka, David Lenigas is a share promoter, and a good one – so far at least - , but the result is that shareholders in things like Rare Earth Minerals (REM) can end up over-paying. There is no doubt that the Sonora lithium deposit is very large, and in the fullness of time could generate substantial value.   But that misses the point, which is that Rare is an investment company and one should therefore look at the share price in terms of the current market value of the individual components.  This is important when you can get access to the same assets via investing directly, in other listed companies.

SeaEnergy: profit warning, loans, new Nomad. Was that plain or cheese'n'onion?

Published 1240 days ago

I suppose that a profit warning should actually involve profits but unfortunately for SeaEnergy's (SEA) beleaguered shareholders that seems to be a long way off. With the low oil price it goes without saying that companies with exposure to black gold in some form or other are going to be suffering in the current climate. But SeaEnergy – as discussed HERE - could and should have been almost bullet-proof. Having had cash and readily realisable assets worth millions, the company has spent the cash and stood by while the value of the holding in Lansdowne Oil and Gas (LOGP) has dwindled away. It now finds itself reliant on the bank and having to go round with a begging bowl in order to keep the lights on.

88Energy – private investors acting like lambs to the slaughter

Published 1246 days ago

Will private investors on AIM ever learn? This morning 88 Energy (88E) raised A$3million at 0.47p, a mere 24% discount to where the stock opened on Monday. The company also announced a first come first serve Share Purchase Plan (SPP) to raise up to €4,999,999 from existing eligible shareholders. Under the terms of this, retail holders of 88 Energy are allowed to purchase parcels of up to A$15,000 worth of stock on the same terms as the placement participants. No doubt people will fall over themselves to take up this deal, but if the company has such great prospects why the steep discount?

A month ago almost to the day (link here) I wrote on the luxury retailer Burberry (BRBY) that:

‘The direction of Burberry shares over the next six months does largely depend on how Chinese performance is perceived.  I think they surprise these low expectations and extrapolations…And this makes Burberry shares (still) a buy today’.

Today’s formal six month numbers to the end of September released today reiterate this view. 

Ubisense Group – profit warning, I’ve an idea where the “further cost actions” can start…

Published 1253 days ago

I looked at Ubisense Group (UBI) in August – noting "performance payments" to CEO Richard Green despite the company’s shocking track record and concluding that, even after the shares had declined from 275p reached last year to 103.5p, “even if the balance sheet was exceptionally strong (it’s not: net cash of £2.5 million), the track record suggests this a clear bargepole stock” (see Ubisense Group – interim results continue shocking track record, where are the shareholders’ “performance payments”?). The following updates with the shares currently down to 66p on the back of an, ahem, “trading update”

Zak Mir's Bull Call of the Day No. 2: Norcros: 2014 Resistance Line Projection Target At 240p

It may be a tad worrying to some, including myself, that over the past few days it has become increasingly difficult to find outstanding bullish share price situations. Perhaps shares in Norcros (NXR) offer some hope

Atlas Developments - worth a gamble at 0.6p?

Published 1253 days ago

Over the last few days I took a gamble that Atlas Developments (ADSS) is going to deliver some positive news before the end of the month. This is a punt on a stock which is widely loathed and as Gary Newman would have us believe is meant to be a “massive bargepole stock, with dilution coming”. I agree with a lot of what Gary has to say about Atlas, but I think he has overlooked the possibility the company could release a surprise RNS before the end of the month. Here’s why.

Rolls Royce – short cycle versus long cycle.

Grafenia plc – following last month’s ‘no one watching o’clock’ profit warning, what now?…

I concluded a previous piece on Grafenia plc (GRA) HERE by saying that, despite the shares having fallen to 15.5p, withfurther detail of interim results expected to be announced on 9th November, it looked one to avoid. This has proven wise, with the share price now 12.875p…

Gulf Keystone at 27p – a risky buy, but watch the 6.25% 2017 bond price

Published 1254 days ago

In the next week we should find out whether or not the Kurdish Regional Government (KRG) is going to make good on its summer pledges. In August and September it promised to establish a regular payment cycle to the various oil producing companies active in the country for crude exports. Share prices of Gulf Keystone (GKP), Genel (GENL) and Norwegian firm DNO (DNO) leapt on the news. Two months and two payments later, the third should be due on or around 15 November. If Gulf receives another $15million, might this help restore some faith in the company’s future?

Zak Mir's Bull Call of the Day No. 1: Lekoil- Bull Flag Above 200 Day Line

It might appear that shares in Lekoil (LEK) make a somewhat unusual choice for a Bull Call of the Day, especially as it is difficult to imagine what the big fundamental driver here may be for a significant upward move in the share price.

Xcite Energy; farm-in agreement a sign of desperate times.

Published 1254 days ago

Shares in Xcite Energy (XEL) are up 6.25% this morning on news of the company’s farm-in with Azinor Catalyst Limited. Under the terms of the deal, Azinor has the opportunity to earn into the UK Continental Shelf (UKCS) Licence P.1979, held by Xcite’s subsidiary Xcite Energy Resources. In return for completing a technical evaluation and then possibly an Induced Polarization survey of P.1979, Azinor could receive as much as 50% of the licence’s equity. On the face of it this looks like decent enough news for Xcite. The deal should enable progress at this non-core asset, allowing the company to focus on its flagship Bentley project. However, Xcite is giving up a significant proportion of P.1979 in return. The question now is, can this deal deliver value to shareholders?

Avation keeps to expansion path

What’s wrong with Bowleven?

Published 1255 days ago

This morning Bowleven (BLVN) announced its full year results. The company has made excellent operational progress and its balance sheet remains strong. On 30 June Bowleven was debt free, had a cash balance of $145.3million (£96million) and the expectation of the equivalent of up to a further $80million investment under the terms of the Etinde farm out ($40million free carry in two appraisal wells and $40million in cash payments, subject to certain milestones). Although the cash balance will have been eaten into over the last 4 months, during which two exploration wells were drilled at Bomono, Bowleven is in rude financial health. So why does the market continue to punish its share price?

BHP Billiton: investing after a disaster

Published 1256 days ago

There are some events which transcend normal investment analysis.  The shocking scenes of devastation over the last few days from the area around the Samarco iron-ore mine in Brazil following the unintended release of mine tailings received a lot of press coverage.  As the co-owner (along with the Brazilian business Vale) BHP Billiton (BLT) correctly in a regulatory disclosure earlier today ‘offered its full support to help the immediate rescue efforts and to assist with the investigation’ and made its ‘immediate priority…the welfare of the Samarco workforce and the local communities’. None of this of course will bring back those who have lost their lives.

Pantheon Resources; market goes wild, ignores health warnings

Published 1259 days ago

Pantheon Resources (PANR) has been AIM’s success story of the autumn, but the market’s reaction to this morning’s reaction looks overblown. The VOS#1 well, in which the company holds a 50% stake, has encountered natural gas and oil in an unexpected zone at 12,600ft. On the face of it this is good news, but there are some cautionary warnings that investors should not get too excited just yet. Despite these the market has reacted joyously and Pantheon’s share price is up 16.2% at 86p last seen.

However, the last two announcements from the company look surprisingly positive. In this morning’s trade, I’ve watched Red Rock’s Offer move from 0.025p to 0.03p on higher than average volume. Given that we are less than halfway through the session, this suggests that some in the market are starting to pay attention.

Victoria Oil & Gas – transforming from a sentiment play to a fundamental one

Published 1268 days ago

Victoria Oil & Gas (VOG) delivered a fairly upbeat set of results this morning. Although the company recorded a $50.8million loss, $49.8million of this stemmed from an impairment charge relating to the company’s West Medvezhye project in Russia. The much more positive news was that operations in Cameroon delivered a profit after tax of $5.4million. Even so, the market appears to have been fairly underwhelmed by this and Victoria Oil & Gas’ share price is off 2.5% at 58p, last seen. This values the company at £64.6million. The question now is might there be a value case for buying this stock with a medium outlook?

When I heard that CEB Resources (CEB) CEO Dave Whitby was coming to the UK for a meet and greet with investors I thought, “here we go”. As much as I like the story and can see the opportunity in the Indonesian gas market, Whitby’s visit looked like a par for the course placement run. So confident was I that this was just another foreign executive coming over to tap into the seemingly inexhaustible British desire for resource-based pipe dreams, I bet cynically bet Doc Holiday a fiver that the company would place within a month of Whitby leaving. I was wrong. Serve me right for taking on the market mechanics maestro.

Having made nearly £37 million pre-tax in 2014, the London-based company is proposing to move to quarterly dividend payments and to carry out a four-for-one share split, after lifting net asset value 10% in the first half of this year to £377.5 million or 339p a share, with interim pre-tax profits up 47% to £32.4 million, helped by a £2.2 million interest rate derivatives gain, on a 5.2% increase in rental income to £30.6 million.

UK Oil & Gas: What a shock the market doesn’t care about Markwells Wood

Published 1281 days ago

There is one thing that the “businesses” David Lenigas sets up rely on; his instinctive ability to promote overvalued paper. Despite this the Lenigas alchemy only works for so so long. As soon as Britain’s best paper salesman moves on from one of his “businesses” (once it’s reached a certain stage of “maturity”, of course) the company’s share price typically follows him quickly out of the door. This pattern has been repeated time and time again. Tom recently pointed out the miserable long-term performance of LGO Energy (LGO), but today it is UK Oil & Gas’ (UKOG) near terminal-looking decline that caught my eye. Worry not though UKOG’ers you have Stephen “I never said 100 billion barrels, although I was captured on camera saying just that” Sanderson at the helm.

Burberry’s China crisis…and why the shares are a buy

Published 1281 days ago

Six weeks ago when I wrote an article for ShareProphets’ e-book The Magnificent Seven I wrote about a business with…

‘…real heritage and was founded a mere 159 years ago in 1856.  It is a large business and nestles happily in the FTSE-100 supported by brands that have a growing global appeal with net cash on its balance sheet, good free cash flow generation and a progressive dividend yield of currently just below 3%. The company used to just sell its wares from an expensive shop location but today interacts with its fans and followers digitally to such an extent that a couple of years ago its previous CEO was poached by a small technology company you may have heard of called Apple to assist with their digital brand positioning’

Well more fool me.  Burberry (BRBY) may have risen pleasantly in the month or so immediately after the e-book publication but today’s shocker statement and share price moves puts me at a loss today versus my tip level.

Shares in the company, for long out of favour with investors, have surged from a 12-month low of 1.15p and 2.07p when highlighted here in June to 3.9p, still a mere fraction of former levels, helped by the Inspectorate’s favourable reply about the project to the Swedish Department of Enterprise, which had inquired after the local County Board of Norbotten, where Kallak is situated, had pronounced ‘a mining project at Kallak can bring significant economic benefits.’

This morning, Sula Iron & Gold (SULA) delivered one of the limpest imaginable excuses for a deeply discounted placement. Apparently the company has signed an NDA with a Tier 1 international gold producer, which is going to send one of its staff monkeys to observe drilling at Sula’s Ferensola gold project in November. This is why Sula has slaughtered its shareholders this morning, to raise £500,000 before expenses at 0.3p (an all time low for the share price, 40% below yesterday’s close). It is most definitely not to keep the PLC lights on and cover its c.£1.65million in annual admin costs.

Kibo Mining upbeat on coal to power project

Published 1283 days ago

East Africa-focused diversified coal play Kibo Mining (KIBO) is sounding increasingly enthusiastic about its 109 million-tonne Mbeya coal-to-power project in south-west Tanzania in the wake of a cheering update on the definitive feasibility study under way on the mining side of the project. With its AIM-quoted shares at 5.38p, between last December’s 12-month high of 9.75p and a 1.17p low, the Dublin-based company hopes to produce 1.48 million tonnes of thermal coal a year as from the first quarter of 2019 ’as long as there are no other snags,’ says chief executive officer Louis Coetzee, to feed a proposed 250-350 megawatt mouth-of-mine powered station to supply Tanzania’s fuel-hungry market.

Gulf Keystone: positive upgrade to its numbers, but with a touch of caution

Published 1296 days ago

At 32p Gulf Keystone (GKP) is worth £313million. This morning, the company announced its updated Competent Persons Report (CPR) for its oil & gas interests in Kurdistan. The numbers are impressive, but the market reaction has been muted, with Gulf now trading flat on the day. When a company increases its 1P Reserves by a better than expected 55% this would normally be cause for celebration, even in today’s oil price environment. However, as we all know, Gulf’s main challenge isn’t getting oil out of the ground. It is ensuring it gets paid.

Alecto Minerals in expansion quest

Africa-focused AIM dog Alecto Minerals (ALO) is understood to have a new acquisition on the continent ‘in the pipeline’ following its agreements to pool resources in Mali with Canadian outfit Desert Gold Ventures and to sell its Ethiopian interests to local concern Wame Mineral Development. Alecto, which is receiving a nominal £1 each from Wame for Nubian Gold Exploration and Rift Valley Resources plus potential eventual royalties of up to $1 million (£667,500) each should they establish formal gold resources, hopes the takeover it has in mind will provide a route to near-term production, which might come as a relief to investors, who have seen the shares fall 93% since the company was floated on AIM at 2p nine years ago to 0.13p today.

Xtract Resources: nosedives on disappointing interims, more dilution coming

Published 1297 days ago

Shares in Xtract Resources (XTR) have fallen 20% to 0.24p today on the company’s disappointing interim results. Xtract has been one of the most hyped stocks of 2015, rising from a low of 0.07p to a high of 0.45p on 1 June. Following the inevitable pullback in advance of 29 June’s placement, the share price settled in a range of 0f 0.215p to 0.3p, only to start rallying again last week. Cynics might wonder whether this was a pre-results pump ahead of today’s dump. Certainly anyone who bought in at yesterday’s high of 0.324p is now nursing a hefty loss, within half a trading session. The question now is can Xtract regain its momentum?
