Central Asia Metals looks a great longer term investment in copper

Published 1 day 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.

Fishing retailer Angling Direct lists on AIM - but does it offer value?

Published 5 days ago

Following the successful floatation of Fishing Republic (FISH) a couple of years back, it was only a matter of time before one of the other large fishing tackle retailers followed the same route, and we’ve just seen Angling Direct (ANG) list on the AIM market.

Premaitha - new Thermo Fisher loan: sends strong message to Illumina: BUY

Published 6 days ago

Premaitha Health (NIPT) has announced that it has entered into a further extension of the investment agreement with Thermo Fisher Scientific  announced on 14 December 2015 and extended as announced on 23 September 2016. This is good news.

Will UK Oil and Gas ever produce large amounts of oil onshore in the UK? Er... sell!

Published 9 days ago

I haven’t looked at UK Oil and Gas (UKOG), and more specifically the Horse Hill oil field, for quite a while and a lot has changed in the meantime, so I thought it about time that I revisited it.

Falanx Results - Really what is not to like?

Published 10 days ago

Falanx (FLX) has finally released its results for the year to March 31. The numbers were in line but it is the forward looking statement that is the dazzler. That is not reflected in the share price which came off by more than 10% on the session at 6.75p-7p. We think the market called that wrong and here is why.

I'm getting a feeling of deja vu with Nu-Oil and Newfoundland

Published 11 days ago

Nu-Oil and Gas (NUOG) is all the rage at the moment amongst PIs, but I’m finding it hard to get quite so excited about its prospects and am getting a feeling of déjà vu when I look back at some of the old Enegi Oil announcements.

Frontera – Directorate Changes: RNS Translation Service

Published 11 days ago

AIM-listed Frontera Resources (FRR) has announced that Steve C Nicandros is to relinquish his executive role as CEO but remains at non-executive chairman. After 21 years of service it is natural to look back and talk about the highlights, so the ShareProphets RNS Translation Team has been busy with today’s quote from Mr Nicandros. Original is in bold.

If all else fails - buy a lithium licence! The "business plan" for AIM joke Arian Silver

Published 13 days ago

When a tiny AIM company suddenly becomes popular all over Twitter and the bulletin boards, and without any real news to justify that sudden attention, then you have to question why it is happening.

Nearly Time to Short Tesla

Published 14 days ago

I am not a great fan of shorting crazy valuations on the basis that they tend to get crazier. For this reason, I have not been short the likes of Fevertree (FEVR) or Purplebricks (PURP), as calling the top is well-nigh impossible.

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

Published 14 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 17 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.

Nektan: Some good news, survival for now and a change of stance from a Not-Always-So-Cynical Bear

Published 17 days ago

Nektan (NKTN) has been surviving on fumes recently but its short-term survival is ensured by an announcement this morning with a loan from its major shareholders and although the future still looks tricky, such support is to be applauded as it keeps hopes alive for the wider shareholder base.

Hurricane deal disappoints investors, but is it really that bad?

Published 22 days ago

Hurricane Energy (HUR) is a company that I have followed closely, and have been invested in at various times, since it first floated on the AIM market, and it has come a long way since then.

Shenanigans at Blenheim Natural Resources need investigating

Published 24 days ago

A few weeks ago I penned a piece on Blenheim Natural Resources (BNR) in which I was highly skeptical of the recent holdings RNSs from a certain Pershing Nominees/Valbury Capital.

Reader Poll Advanced Oncotherapy share price by close of play Friday?

Published 27 days ago

Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO) shares have fallen from a ramptastic peak of 350p to just 13.5p to sell as at last Friday. But sell you should as I explained again today HERE. The question is what will the shares be trading at ( mid) as at next Friday which is a critical deadline. What do you think? Let's gloat on the professional graves of scumbag crony capitalist Dr Michael Sinclair, arch share ramper Alan Green and PR low life Paul "Queenie" McManus. With a deadline of 7 AM Monday 26th vote now in the poll below.

Fusionex shares up 55% at 61p - WTF? Fear not

Published 33 days ago

In seven days time shares in Fusionex (FXI) the drowning in red flags tech company from the Norfolk province of Malaysia will be delisted from the AIM Casino. Yet the shares are up by 55% today at 61.5p. WTF?

Sylvania Platinum looks to offer great long term value

Published 35 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.

Jubilee Platinum continues to make progress: BUY

Published 37 days ago

Shares in Jubilee Platinum (JLP) have taken a bit of a battering in recent months, but I can still see plenty of upside here on any sort of positive reversal in platinum prices, and it is also worth remembering that other platinum group metals have been more robust.

Strange share price action at Blenheim Natural Resources

Published 38 days ago

Blenheim Natural Resources (BNR) isn’t exactly on my list favourite AIM companies to invest in, but even I have been surprised by the recent sizeable drop in share price.

Mosman Oil & Gas over-reacts to very average news at best!

Published 39 days ago

Private investors often seem to have very short memories, and although many have previously been badly burned by putting money into Mosman Oil and Gas (MSMN), some were flocking back into the company again today, sending its share price rocketing.

Shoe Zone – half-year results suggest continued income value

Published 41 days ago

Value footwear retailer, Shoe Zone (SHOE) has announced results for its half year ended 1st April 2017 and that it “has traded broadly in line with management's expectations since the period end and the board continues to look to the future with confidence”.

Some might think Oilex looks cheap - it isn't!

Published 45 days ago

Oilex (OEX) took a big hit to its share price this week following news of an unsuccessful workover at two of its oil wells, and it is hard to see how the company is going to turn things around.

The People's Operator burns through cash at an astonishing rate

Published 53 days ago

The People’s Operator (TPOP) was once a favourite with private investors but its share price has taken a tumble since the latter part of 2016. However, I believe that it is still well over-priced at its current level.

Cost cutting could prove costly for International Airlines Group

Published 54 days ago

International Consolidated Airlines Group (IAG) has been on a steady upwards trajectory ever since taking a big hit to its share price when the UK voted in favour of Brexit last June, but that rise looks like it is about to hit a brick wall following last week’s debacle involving British Airways.

Petrofac can still recover after recent bad news

Published 55 days ago

Petrofac (PFC) has seen its share price get absolutely hammered in recent weeks, and although some will probably think I am mad, I can see a buying opportunity here at these levels.

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

Published 60 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. 

Time to buy Vedanta before the release of results in the UK

Published 62 days ago

Vedanta Resources (VED) was one of my best performing shares during 2016, and after a significant pullback in the share price in recent months it is well worth considering buying back in at current levels.

A magnificent seven damning points on Frontera by the great Waseem

Published 65 days ago

The great bear Waseem Shakoor rates Frontera Resources (FRR) as one of the top 3 dogs for shooting on the AIM casino. He has just posted seven points for bulls to ignore as they ramp this worthless crap. Over to Waseem.

Disappointing updates from Lonmin suggest further weakness to come

Published 67 days ago

Lonmin (LMI) is a company that I have followed closely for several years, but after the latest updates this week, and with platinum still looking weak, I wouldn’t be in any rush to buy.

Andrews Sykes – 2016 results, dividend yield remains attractive despite share price rise

Published 69 days ago

Andrews Sykes (ASY), a 380p offer price November share tip, has announced results for the 2016 calendar year and that it is “cautiously optimistic for further success in 2017”

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

Published 72 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.

Another good update from Randgold Resources - still a buy

Published 75 days ago

I have been a fan of Randgold Resources (RRS) for a long time and the latest update from the company continues to support my bullish view here.

Ariana remains a buy after resource update

Published 79 days ago

I recently wrote a piece HERE expressing my surprise that the share price of Ariana Resources (AAU) had failed to react positively to good news, so it probably shouldn’t have come as a surprise that a decent update on its resource actually resulted in the share price closing slightly lower.

I don't view Blenheim Natural Resources as an investment, but can see a potential trade

Published 81 days ago

Regular readers here will know that I am not exactly a fan of Blenheim Natural Resources (BNR), nor have I ever been despite plenty of interest from private investors in this company.

Another decent update from Sylvania Platinum

Published 86 days ago

I’ve been a fan of Sylvania Platinum (SLP) since early last year and during that time the share price has doubled, and the latest operations update has certainly done nothing to alter my view of the company.

Surprising lack of interest in Ariana

Published 87 days ago

Given that the company is now producing gold, I’ve been somewhat surprised by the lacklustre response that the market has given Ariana Resources (AAU) since that news came.

Fishing Republic: Impressive growth but still looks expensive

Published 88 days ago

Fishing Republic (FISH) is a company that I have been keeping a close eye on ever since it first listed on AIM back in June 2015 and, although I find it hard to see value at the current market cap, it is showing signs that it could grow into it.

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

Published 89 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.

Why the sudden interest in Infinity Energy?

Published 92 days ago

There suddenly seems to be a lot of excitement all over twitter and the bulletin boards about a tiny AIM shell called Infinity Energy SA (INFT) – but of course that wouldn’t have anything at all to do with the recent placing and placees looking to offload for a quick profit!

Orosur looks under-valued as gold shows continued strength

Published 94 days ago

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!

Is Onzima's placing the most expensive ever?

Published 95 days ago

Shareholders of Onzima Ventures (ONZ) will be breathing a sigh of relief following confirmation of the acquisition of the remaining 51% of private company N4 Pharma, and meaning that the new entity will relist on AIM. 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.

A Few Jolly Good Reasons to Return to BP

Published 96 days ago

Hello Share Rattlers. On checking the number of BP shares I hold, I was rather shocked. It’s one of those shares I’ve been gradually building up, whenever I find myself with a bit of share cash and no clear company currently worthy of investment.

Atalaya Mining offers a speculative play on copper prices rising further

Published 99 days ago

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.

Sanderson Group is showing steady growth

The tangled web behind URU Metals

URU Metals (URU) seems to have this RNS lark cracked – if the market hates the first one that you issue, then just word it slightly differently and release news about the same project again the following day. You really couldn’t make it up!

Central Asia Metals - the best value mining stock on the market?

Published 108 days ago

A few weeks back I wrote a piece here suggesting that Central Asia Metals (CAML) was one of the best value mining shares around, and following the release of its final results I believe that to be even more the case now.

K3 Results - no further nasties: Buy

Published 109 days ago

Updating previously on K3 Business Technology (KBT) in January, we noted a most disappointing profits warning. This is now reflected in announced results for the company’s half-year ended 31st December 2016 – about which we have now spoken to management…

My view on Sound Energy's market valuation remain unchanged

Published 115 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.

Could Digital Barriers be on the verge of turning things around?

Published 117 days ago

Digital Barriers (DGB) has been like so many other AIM companies, in that it has promised a lot but has failed to deliver in the way that investors expected it to, and it now looks like the last chance for the company to live up to expectations.

Check this Compass - A Company that Knows Where It's Going.

Hello Share Takers. Compass Group  (CPS) is one of my all time favourites, but it is not a fast mover. We have here more of a slow steady profitable company that rarely sees huge jumps, and even rare falls in its share price.

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

Published 121 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 121 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

Published 122 days ago

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 124 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).

Zinc Media looks expensive based on latest financials

Published 124 days ago

Small AIM outfit Zinc Media (ZIN) released its interim results last week and trumpeted that it is continuing to move in the right direction, but I would question whether the turnaround is happening fast enough to make the shares attractive.

Is it worth giving Chariot another chance?

Published 125 days ago

Chariot Oil and Gas (CHAR) has begun to get my attention again recently as it has plenty going on operationally during the next year or so, and could well become a popular share to be in once again.

Igas – hats off to the board

Published 127 days ago

I never thought I’d be saying this, but it is hats off the to the board which looks to have saved the company. This morning AIM-listed Igas Energy (IGAS) updated on its rescue refinancing and it looks to be a done deal. Shareholders will be feeling the pain, but as we have continually warned as the share price declined this was an inevitable consequence of the financial predicament in which the company found itself, the legacy of the Andrew “Piggy” Austin era. 

Interquest Results - still a recovery buy

Technology sectors-focused recruitment group, InterQuest (ITQ) has announced results from a “challenging” 2016 year of“transformation” following a change in executive management, though is “cautiously optimistic about 2017”.

TLOU Energy has the potential to succeed

Published 129 days ago

TLOU Energy (TLOU) was once one of those AIM companies that was hugely popular with PIs and was attracting a lot of attention and hype. Now that has now subsided, I can see real potential with this company going forward given the track record of those who are running it.

Advanced Oncotherapy forced to fess up on Death Spiral Provider Bracknor & Short selling

Published 134 days ago

Heading to zero, serial liar Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO) has today called a GM to approve the issue of a blizzard of shares to obliterate its share price via death spiral. More on that later but the documentation throws up another issue other than the lies refered to earlier HERE, why will Advanced NOT come clean on short selling by death spiral provider Bracknor.

You'll struggle to find a better copper play than Central Asia Metals

Published 136 days ago

Copper has been showing some signs of weakness in the past week or so following an unstoppable rise from around $2/lb during the early part of 2016, and despite the pullback it is still trading much higher, at around $2.62/lb, as I write this piece.

Tom Winnifrith Bonus Bearcast: Standard Life & Aberdeen Asset management - tedium & corruption

Published 138 days ago

There are two matters under discussion in this podcast. First the merger between Aberdeen Asset Management (ADN) and Standard Life (SL.). I am bored by it. It is not what will drive the share price. Second the corrupt way the news was leaked via a corrupt Fleet Street in a way that can only harm private investors. As an "insider" in days gone by I explain exactly how this corrupt and rotten system works.

It's time to consider Premier Oil as a longer term recovery play

Published 146 days ago

Premier Oil (PMO) is a company that I have been bearish on so far in 2017, but it has now reached a level where I would consider changing my stance to a buy, or at the very least one to watch closely for when the recent trend changes direction and it starts to bounce.

Advanced Oncotherapy - The Death Spiral dance begins....timber!

Published 147 days ago

Having promised "non dilutive funding" ad nauseam, on Wednesday AIM listed POS Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO) announced a £13 million death spiral funding with are shylocks Bracknor. On Friday it drew down tranche one and promptly served up another dose of smoke and mirrors for punters. The death spiral dance is now underway. Advanced announced that:

Advanced Oncotherapy: Metric the £11 million black hole and insolvency by March 31?

Published 149 days ago

Yesterday I pointed out how the £13 million death spiral Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO) had signed with loan sharks Bracknor would see its share price collapse. It should but there is worse news in store - that of insolvency looming in just five weeks time. Insolvency you say? What are you talking about? Let me explain.

Advanced Oncotherapy - the Bracknor Death Spiral explained Part 2 - this is just so bad, it is awful.

Published 150 days ago

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 157 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.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: A tale of two podcasters, I met a sheep with its hind leg trapped in the fence today

Yes I did. It was on the way back from the mountain village of Kambos to Kalamata. Some podcasters might have salivated and regarded this as an opportunity. But I am not Justin the Clown, still smarting from rugby defeat for his beloved Wales at the weekend. But I thought it was my duty to help anyway. I digress from the main features of this podcast: Kefi (KEFI), Mila Resources (MILA) and the China fraud Jiasen (JSI). I also look at a share price of a stock where I am an insider - oh no not insider dealing on the AIM casino I hear you say. And then I update on the Dirty Dozen AIM Resource portfolio which I shall launch later today.

Blenheim Natural Resources is being pumped hard after the recent placing

The things I do for you dear reader: go to the Spring Fair and read the Mail on Sunday. Truly what sacrifices I make. We are in the tail end of a bull market for low grade AIM stocks. 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)

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 176 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.

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

Published 191 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.

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.

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.

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

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...

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Roland "fatty" Cornish - "oops I did it again

I start with Gulf Keystone (GKP) and a share price driven by morons. talking of morons, London's most useless Nomad, Roland "fatty" Cornish has screwed up again. This time it is Nyota Minerals (NYO) although the real issue here is when is Nyota bust. I think it might be already. I look at Avanti and ask who is smarter: Tom Dobell of M&G, a Bulletin Board Moron or an institutional investor in bonds. I look at Koovs (KOOV), Essentra (ESNT) and Audiooboom (BOOM).

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

Published 361 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.

Savills offers good long term value and growth prospects

Published 362 days ago

Estate agents and housebuilders plummeted after Britain voted to leave the EU, as the chances of a slump in the property market were seen by some as having increased as a result of that outcome. 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.

Published 373 days ago

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.

Tom Winnifrith bonus bearcast - 14 Red Flags you may have missed At Avanti Communications

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! I missed an obvious 15th: the promise to move from AIM to the Main Market. It did not happen. Companies that promise the jump but don't make it (think Quindell) are always red flagged.

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

Published 399 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?

Hello Share Mongers. The case for investing in large pharma companies remains strong in my book. Maybe it's because I'm getting old, but I see that health is the biggest concern we ought to have. 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.

CIC Gold (CICG) is in an even worse state and today's RNS is a shambles. The curse of boy scout mugger Stuart Bromley strikes again. It is doomed. Then I discuss what, if anything, is wrong at TrakM8 (TRAK). Then a question raised by the share price move on Friday at ADVFN (AFN).

So a Brexit vote should not make much difference. This Midlands company builds roads. It also does pipes, drainage outlets, security hardware. crash barriers and fences. I last looked at this outfit 4 months ago. The share price has risen from 778p then to its present level of 910p. 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.

PowerHouse Energy looks set to be booted off of AIM at last!

African Potash: Where are the payments and delivery on the other MOUs?

Published 572 days ago

Vedanta (VED) is a company that I have been consistently wrong about over the past year or so, but which I still like! Like pretty much any resource stock its shares have been slaughtered over the past 12 months, having traded in the mid 550s at the start of the year, as opposed to the current share price in the 280p range. That means its market cap has taken a hit of in the region of £770 million.

If at first you don't succeed, change the goalposts – the resetting of Directors options: ref David Lenigas

Published 582 days ago

Vislink plc – "trading statement" attempts to follow management cowardice and greed with PR spin

Published 588 days ago

Vislink plc (VLK) announced a new management “incentive policy” in July, with shares in the company having exceeded 60p in the prior month.

Rare Earth Minerals – another way of looking at it?

Published 603 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 605 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.

The share price charting position of Leaf Clean Energy (LEAF) is of interest from a bullish perspective, partly in its own right, and partly on the basis that it is very similar to the configuration at today’s first Bull Call Of The Day stock, Inspiration Healthcare Group (IHC).

Published 610 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?

Crazy market valuations aren’t exactly that unusual on the AIM market as hype plays a big part.

Burberry: zero revenue growth, zero profit growth…but still a buy

‘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.

Atlas Developments - worth a gamble at 0.6p?

Published 618 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.

STM Group (STM) may be about to receive the kiss of death from a little Zak Mir technical analysis, but it would appear that at least for now the setup in the share price here is robust enough to deliver for the bulls. Can the shares live up to this billing?

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

Published 619 days ago

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 619 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 620 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 621 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 624 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.

Red Rock Resources; is the tide turning?

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 633 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?

“A big deal is on the way”, “heads of terms being agreed right now”, “contract to be signed in a week”, “the news will be massive”; these are just some of the rumours currently ricocheting round about AIM tiddler Armstrong Ventures (AVP). Priced at 0.0169p and with a modest 23billion shares in issue, Armstrong Ventures’ market cap is £3.9million. Putting money into a stock like this is the investment equivalent of playing with fire, but that doesn’t mean you can’t make a turn on it - so long as you dive for the exit at the right moment.

CEB Resources: No placement so far, I owe Doc Holiday a fiver

Published 640 days ago

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.

Primary Health Properties targets further expansion

Buying and developing sizeable modern health centres and renting them to general practitioners has been proving a profitable game for fully-listed Primary Health Properties (PHP), a UK real estate trust which aims to boost its present £1.1 billion of assets by at least £100 million a year and hopes to see rental growth in the sector accelerate from its present unexciting 1%. 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 645 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 646 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.’

UPDATED - Sula: stock flippers make hay, shareholders get slaughtered

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.

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

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, 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 662 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?

Sable Mining Africa (SBLM), the AIM-quoted company founded by veteran Zambian-born cricketer and entrepreneur Phil Edmonds, has for long suffered in investors’ appraisal because of its heavy involvement with iron ore, which now trades in the $50 a tonne region, a third of boom-time peaks.

It has been a torrid time of late for mining companies in light of low commodity prices, and even the largest ones have struggled.

Top of that list would be BHP Billiton (BLT), which is a company that I have covered before at higher levels and still see as a good longterm buy, even more so at the current share price of around 1041p.

Your Spread or Mine? Beating the Chasm Twixt Buy and Sell Costs.

Hello Share Putters. One thing that really stops us making as much as we should - and worse, can put us off buying penny shares altogether - is the obscene size of some of the spreads.

Orsu Metals: How to find out from your broker if your shares have been settled.

Published 668 days ago

I asked yesterday whether or not there is a short squeeze in Orsu Metals (OSU)? I don’t own any Orsu stock, so have no way of personally confirming whether or not there are any settlement issues in the market. However, if you bought stock on Monday on a T+2 settlement, it should be straightforward to find out. (And when I say, “should” that does come with a few caveats…)

Globo plc – “EUR14 million Proposed Acquisition”, Hmmm…

Paragon Diamonds in project funding talks

Published 668 days ago

Gem hopeful Paragon Diamonds (PRG) is celebrating two reports by independent consultant MSA Group on its Mothae project in the southern African kingdom of Lesotho, as it negotiates funding with several potential providers, besides hitherto favoured backer, International Triangle General Trading (ITRGT) of Dubai, for its $8.5 million (£5.6 million) acquisition of the project. Guernsey-based and AIM-quoted Paragon, which is developing its flagship Lemphane kimberlite deposit in the same area, recently received approval from the Lesotho government to buy 75% of Mothae from Swedish tycoon Lukas Lundin’s Lucara Diamonds and says the MSA studies ‘exceed management expectations’ for Mothae, which holds an estimated 39 million tonnes of rock with 2.7 carats per hundred tonnes.

New World Oil & Gas: analysis of Paternoster’s 8% purchase

Published 669 days ago

This morning, Paternoster Resources (PRS) announced it has bought an 8% stake in New World Oil & Gas (NEW). In yet another unexpected twist in the unfolding New World story, Paternoster’s motives are unclear. With New World’s AGM looming, shareholders in the company will be faced with a clear choice. Support the existing failed management and plan, or vote in Adam Reynolds and his team. Given this situation, there will be speculation why Paternoster has chosen to buy into New World at this particular point. However, judging by the manner and method of its announcement today, there could be some interesting clues that might help answer at least some of the questions.

Zak Mir's Bull Call Of The Day No.2: DP Poland: Classic Bull Set Up

Hello Share Fans. Well, that was a bummer. There I was expecting Zurich to put in a strong offer for RSA (RSA) the big insurance combine. There was talk of £5.50 from the present going rate of 5.15p which had already been boosted greatly by the preliminaries to merger.

Zak Mir's Great Request Show: RSA: A Bottom Fish Opportunity After The Rug Is Pulled

I have to confess that although M&A moves in a very volatile and largely bearish summer London stock market should have been very enticing, the RSA (RSA) share rally and decline have totally passed me by. But now that the deal with Zurich Financial is off, what does this mean for the share price after the drop?

Royal & Sun Alliance: it is not you but me…

Published 670 days ago

Bit of a Swiss surprise today with the news that Zurich Insurance is ending its 550p bid for Royal & Sun Alliance (RSA).  Normally when a proposed deal falls apart it is because the bidder has found something dodgy in its detailed due diligence – and let’s face it insurance accounting is opaque at best.  However this time the issue is all with the seemingly not-so-prudent Swiss with the management at Zurich noting ‘the deterioration in profitability in certain parts of the(ir) General Insurance business’ which it has to sort out first before it could even consider completing a bid on another insurance company like RSA.

GlaxoSmithKline is a strong buy at these levels

Published 670 days ago

The recent big drops in many leading stock market indices, including the FTSE100, is giving an opportunity to pick some stocks up at a bargain price. I think that GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) definitely falls into that category and its current share price of around 1285p – the lowest levels since mid-2011 – offers a great long term buying opportunity for this FTSE100 listed pharmaceutical company.

Name change and growth for EMED - shares could well be very cheap

Spanish copper producer EMED Mining (EMED) plans to change its name to Atalaya Mining and to implement a one-for-30 share consolidation, as the AIM-quoted company prepares to boost annual production 50% to 7.5 million tonnes a year from the historic Rio Tinto mine near Seville. EMED, whose shares have fallen from a 12-month high of7.98p to 3.875p with copper in retreat, intends to reach that output level by the end of next June and lift it further to 9.5 million tonnes a year six months later  -- with expected extraction costs significantly below even today’s depressed copper price.

There are strange goings on over at Red Emperor Resources (RMP). Since the company announced the failure of the Hawkeye-1 exploration well, it has issued half a dozen holdings RNSs in which three organisations, including its UK broker, Brandon Hill Capital, have been steadily increasing their notifiable holdings on the open market. Yesterday, the J&J Bandy Super Fund joined the party, declaring its 3.66% stake. Today the company’s share price has risen 8.37% to 1.27p, last seen. Does the market sniff that something is afoot?

LGO Energy: Gary Newman vindicated, this one is in trouble

Published 673 days ago

A month ago, Gary Newman wrote that LGO Energy (LGO) “looks overvalued and in trouble”. His analysis drew quite a lot of criticism, but this morning it looks like his view has been vindicated, as the company announced an unimpressive set of interim figures. For good measure, hidden away in these, is a significant downgrade of the company’s production outlook.

Conflicts around the world seem to be on the increase, and if anything it looks likely that we can expect more in the coming years. This is of course bad news for most companies operating in those regions, especially some of the African and Middle Eastern ones, with the exception being those companies that are in the defense and aerospace sector. One such company that would be likely to benefit is FTSE-listed Chemring Group (CHG), which released a fairly bullish trading update earlier this week.

Tower Resources; plague stock on the mend?

Published 675 days ago

Whenever I mention Tower Resources (TRP) to anyone it’s as if I’ve asked him or her if they enjoy incest and Morris dancing. At the same time (because surely you cannot have one without the other). Tower appears to be as loathed a stock on AIM as one could imagine. With its miserable history, 6.7billion shares in issue and 0.16p share price it’s no wonder this oil & gas exploration company seems to feature at the top of most people’s bargepole lists. What could there possibly be to love?

At 0.36p, is Afriag worth a gamble?

Published 675 days ago

A seemingly innocuous Tweet from David Lenigas on Monday, distancing himself from the looming Sefton Resources (SER) catastrophe, might be an indicator of good things to come for shares of Afriag (AFRI). At 0.36p last seen, Afriag is worth a touch under £5million. There has been little to no market interest in this stock for most of this year. In the last 54 trading session, Afriag has recorded 22 zero volume days and the share price has flat lined. So why might Lenigas feel so committed to this apparent dead duck of a stock?

Panic city at Glencore = mining sector opportunities

Published 675 days ago

Let’s review recent events at the self-styled mining giant Glencore (GLEN).  A month or so ago Glencore management gave a pretty clear view in its post results conference call that the balance sheet was strong enough not to raise money. Nine days ago bullied by panicky ‘key stakeholders’ (i.e. big institutional shareholders) the company announced a surprise range of initiatives as I noted here to strengthen their balance sheet. On the accompanying conference call the management noted cost cuts, mine mothballing and disposals were all way preferable to an equity money raising but that – once again – they would be sounding out the company’s ‘key stakeholders’ to gauge their views.

Mosman Oil & Gas; same old disclosure problems

Published 676 days ago

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

One of the alleged problems with charting the minnows is the way that there is the problem of a lack of liquidity leading to a lack of transparency in terms of the charting and technical set up.

North Sea oil is hardly something that I would generally be rushing to put money into at the moment.

Well, well, well.  For me today’s number one most interesting UK regulatory news update was from Glencore (GLEN).  Just nineteen short days ago after listening to the management of the FTSE-100 mining/commodity trading company confirm their faith in their balance sheet and general corporate approach, Glencore have unveiled a range of initiatives including a US$2.5bn of new equity issuance, the suspension of the dividend for at least the next year and various asset sales and mothballing actions to slash US$10bn from their net debt pile.   Well I did warn at the above link that Glencore was ‘still too much of a full-on risk situation to get involved – and don’t believe that 9% dividend yield many data providers are highlighting at the moment…Enthusiasts for large cap mining investment should continue to prefer Randgold Resources (RRS)…or…BHP Billiton (BLT)…(companies) with a proper underpinned dividend and little debt’.  For the one-line summary this remains my view.

Audioboom Group – substantial existing equity stake placed out… but at a substantial discount…

Published 684 days ago

With its shares have risen towards 17p last year and commenced 2015 at more than 10p, a bearish stance on Audioboom Group (BOOM) has proven wise since – with the shares slipping below 4p last month. The announcement of the placing out of an existing equity stake of 10.8% in the company has though currently helped the shares recover a further approaching 17%, to 5.25p, but does this change the picture here?

Golden Saint Resources; the worst pre-placing ramp ever?

Published 687 days ago

As soon as a company starts pumping the propaganda on Director’s Talk you know what’s coming. This morning, AIM pig dog Golden Saint Resources (GSR) published an entertainingly inept corporate video. If you have eight minutes to kill this lunchtime it is worth a watch. You will quickly become a pointless trivia expert on the climate of Sierra Leone and Executive Chairman Cyril D’Silva’s bizarre way of describing years by using each individual number. You will learn next to nothing about the company or its projects. A cynic might suggest this is because there isn’t much worthwhile to say about either…

Following Bacanora’s milestone agreement to supply Tesla Motors, US maker of electric vehicles, with lithium hydroxide for the batteries they need, the Sonora participants have mobilised a second rig to accelerate drilling the second nine holes of an 18-hole programme as part of a pre-feasibility study on the project, which should be completed in the first quarter of next year.

MX Oil – can it triumph over the savage funding environment?

Published 688 days ago

I’ve got to admit I like the MX Oil (MXO) story. There is plenty of reason for me not to like it, but despite this the fact remains that this is a company that has seized its opportunities. When CEO Stefan Olivier bellowed at me that he wanted me to buy into his MX Oil vision it provoked a wry smile. “Who the bloody hell does this man think he’s talking to?” I quietly wondered to myself, as I received a barrage of an elevator pitch down the phone. We haven’t spoken since, but the brash confidence of that first contact has left its mark. The question now is can MX Oil deliver on Olivier’s bullishness?

Published 695 days ago

On Tuesday, Chris Bailey offered some excellent analysis of BHP Billiton’s (BLT) results. I won’t attempt to steal Chris’ thunder, but one point he made has stuck with me. In its own words BHP Billiton’s board is “resolute” to pay what is now a 7.9% dividend. This is an enormous yield for such a large stock and if the directors follow through with this pledge, the current £10.55p share price is surely a gimme. The question is will the company pay this generous sum?

Shares in AIM-quoted Turkish gold and copper play Ariana Resources (AAU) have come off the boil since the company won permission from the authorities to proceed with its 232,000-oz.

Ariana is choosing the final mining contractor for the project and is negotiating on plant components with local suppliers, having secured a $33 million (£21 million) construction facility from Turkish banking group Turkiye Finans Katalim Bankasi, but its long out-of-favour shares, having rallied from a barely visible 0.75p to 1.35p last month, have fallen back to a price of 0.9p.

Published 699 days ago

Shares in long-unfavoured Oracle Coalfields (ORCP) have been winning some new friends in the wake of acceptance by government of Pakistan’s Sindh province of the company’s pricing petition for its 1.4 billion tonne brown coal (lignite) project in the province’s Thar desert. Shahrukh Khan, entrepreneurial Chief executive officer of AIM-quoted Oracle, argues this acceptance, which will still needs federal ratification if the Sindh government approves, amounts to a ‘green light’ for the projected first phase of the project, which envisages producing four million tonnes a year to feed a 600-megawatt power station for the electricity-hungry region, at an initial price for the lignite of $76.48c (£49) a tonne, subject to later annual review.

It’s great to see a mining company on AIM doing exactly what it said it would do, especially in the current climate. This morning, Kibo Mining (KIBO) delivered its latest important milestone, on schedule. The company has released the findings of Phase 2 Stage 1 of its development plan for the Mbeya Coal to Power Project in Tanzania. Based on exploiting the 109.39mt inferred and indicated resource at the Rukwa coal deposit, this represents another significant step forward for Kibo. It’s now something of a surprise to see the company’s share price trading at 4.75p. Up only 0.63p on the day, it seems likely that Kibo’s shares are held back by the general headwinds blowing a gale against the resource sector. Unperturbed, the company continues to push forward.

Zak Mir's Bull Call Of The Day No. 2: Mortgage Advice Bureau: Bullish Configuration For 380p Destination

Published 710 days ago

On the face of it in a near zero interest rates environment one might have thought that there may not be too much demand for mortgage advice. With a name like Mortgage Advice Bureau (MAB1) you'd be surprised if there was much interest for the company's shares, but as I show below there are some interesting share price targets. 

Zak Mir's Bull Call Of The Day No.1: Private & Commercial Finance Group: 2014 Price Channel Points To 27p

Published 710 days ago

Progress at and along a rising 200 day moving average is what one would expect to see in the more robust of technical situations, and this is what we have been treated to with the shares of Private & Commercial Finance Group (PCF) over the recent past. With the company having pulled back to a possible level of support, I offer a share price target for the potential upside on offer

China Fraud on AIM – the stench of Zedex

Published 710 days ago

I warned folks about Zedex on 16 September 2014 – it is the unregulated boutique that specialises in floating frauds and investment car crashes from China on the AIM Casino. I now update that piece in light of recent events at Camkids and Naibu, both proven Norfolks. I warn you, next up for share price evaporation is China Chaintek (CTEK).

SELL!: WANdisco plc – what’s the exact nature of its HSBC credit facility?

Published 711 days ago

Steve Moore previously commented on AIM-listed WANdisco plc (WAND) HERE (‘after the 2015 Q2 sales update, it’s forecast reduction time yet again!’), including noting forecasts of net cash reducing to $6.2 million at the year-end and an $8.5 million net debt position at the end of next year, with there currently a $10 million revolving credit facility in place with HSBC to March 2017. If this balance sheet position was not too close for comfort already, we now have reason to question the exact nature of the HSBC facility…

Zak Mir's Bull Call Of The Day No.2: Prime People: 170p Target At 2013 Price Channel Top

Published 711 days ago

As far as shares of Prime People go, although we have perhaps had the feeling that this is a slow burn to the upside over the recent past, the overall picture has actually been very strong. Not least because the share price since the start of the bull run in the summer of 2013 has more than tripled.

Zak Mir's Bull Call Of The Day No.1: Emerging Markets Minerals: Intermediate Rebound Towards 50 Day Line

Published 711 days ago

It may be unfortunate that the concept of “Emerging Market” and that of “Minerals” of any shape or size are not exactly hot property or buzzwords on the financial markets at the moment. But for the shares of Emerging Market Minerals (EMM) this is exactly the challenge facing them. I take a look at the chart and offer some share price targets.

Imaginatik plc – more Rob Terry delusion

Published 711 days ago

Tom Winnifrith commented last week on the latest views from the ludicrous Rob Terry HERE. The following updates on Terry’s delusional view in relation to another AIM company he is trying to ramp shares in; Imaginatik plc (IMTK). Does he really expet to push the share price up?

Rockhopper; market does not like this deal, but is it a buying opportunity?

Published 712 days ago

The market is clearly unimpressed with Rockhopper Exploration’s (RKH) acquisition today. The company’s share price has fallen to 6.15% to 57.25p, last seen. Perhaps investors are concerned to see the $11.5million drop in Rockhopper’s cash pile, perhaps they aren’t overly enamoured with an entry into Egypt or perhaps this is just simply a reflection of the general distaste for all things oil. Whatever the case, on a fundamental basis, today’s news looks attractive. That is so long at the crazies don’t sweep to power in Egypt!

Quindell & Cenkos together prove why AIM’s model must fail

Published 712 days ago

The Quindell (QPP) scandal keeps raining blows on AIM’s reputation, further calling into question how much longer this market can limp on in its current guise. At the heart of many long-standing complaints about AIM’s viability are concerns that the Nomad system of self-regulation is inherently flawed. AIM has never been able satisfactorily to answer how poachers can be expected to act as effective gamekeepers. The next revelations about the £5.4million worth of share payments Quindell made in early 2014 to its Nomad, Cenkos Securities, are hardly going to help.

Tern – after the ramp to 27p comes the Placing at 12p. But what’s this?

Published 712 days ago

Well surprise, surprise! As expected (see HERE) AIM listed Tern plc (TERN) has announced a placing in the wake of the monumental rise in the lead-up to its Interims last week, and the explosion following chairman Angus Forrest’s mega ramp of an interview with paid-for Proactive Investors. With the shares having peaked at 27p on Thursday, the company announced a placing of shares this morning – at just 12p. One might only imagine how anyone who was sucked in to paying 27p last week might be feeling now.
