Fecking YUseless Chocolate Teapots discontinue investigation

Published 3 days ago

Never mind that a £10 million (or thereabouts) black hole was found in the accounts of AIM-listed Yu Group (YU.) and it raised £11.6 million in a placing last year on the back of dodgy accounts, the chocolate teapots at the FCA have discontinued their investigation, according to the company this morning...

Yu-hoo! Why are the shares down 13.5%? Statement needed, surely?

Published 53 days ago

Shares in Yu Group (YU.) have been slipping for a few days, and today they are off by 13.5% at just 75p bid, 85p offer. Of course, we already know that it was making up its numbers until the appointment of the new FD and the bean-counters have been crawling all over the company since then…..as has the FCA. A few days ago the stock was at around 120p, so why the drop?

Five slam-dunk sells for 2019 – March edition, as Walcom struggles on (just)

Published 56 days ago

Last month one of the five had its denouement as AIM-listed Haydale (HAYD) had an emergency bailout  - as long predicted by me -  at only 2p. That left just four. My suspicion was that AIM-listed member of the Filthy Forty, Walcom (WALG) would be next with its head under the guillotine and the news there was only marginally better as death has been postponed to June.

SPOOOOOOOF or Snouts in the trough? YU’ve gotta be joking

Sometimes a company issuing options can have a positive spin. Think Big Sofa (BST) under the new management of Kirsty Fuller, having ‘fessed up the uselessness of the previous regime and where options were handed out at 3.5p but only exercisable if the shares clear the 6p mark.

Five slam-dunk sells for 2019 – one down, four to go

Published 85 days ago

They say that a week is a long time in politics (attributed to Harold Wilson), and so it seems with the equity markets. A week ago my portfolio of five shares to sell was actually up by 4.6%. Now, all of a sudden we are at minus 8.6%.

Five slam-dunk sells for 2019 – mid-February update

Published 90 days ago

It is four weeks since my last update, so it is time to take another look at my sells for 2019. The five have, as a whole, had a better month but I cannot help but think that for three of them the precipice approaches...

Yu – reading through the numbers

Published 106 days ago

As Tom Winnifrith said in his Bearcast on Wednesday, Yu Group (YU.) offered numbers in its latest trading statement which are completely meaningless – and thus its net cash position could be anything. I’ve been trying to piece some of it together.

Yu Group – “Trading Update and Change of Auditor” justify the share price rise? Feck yu…

Published 109 days ago

Supplier of gas, electricity and water to businesses, Yu Group (YU.) has updated on 2018, including ‘confirming’ some prior guidance and CEO Bobby Kalar emphasising “with a strong balance sheet and a focussed and dedicated workforce, I remain confident in the underlying business, the significant market opportunity available to us, and the long term success of our proposition and I am absolutely driven to put us back on track”. The shares have responded currently more than doubling, to above 150p. Hmmm…

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Lord Razzall fecks off back to the Westminster Swamp but his final numbers from Boxhill are bollocks

Published 109 days ago

In today's podcast I take a detailed look at Boxhill (BOX) and at Yu Group (YU.) - I believe numbers from neither. I ask questions about Staffline (STAF) and its curious statement today. And i also do some number crunching on the living dead, Phontonstar Led (PSL) and have a few thoughts on Independent Oil & Gas (IOG)

5 Sells for 2019 – early January update

Published 118 days ago

I thought I’d update on my 5 sells for 2019 as after just a couple of weeks a few cracks are beginning to show already. The five, Telit (TCM), Haydale (HAYD), Yu Group (YU.), Walcom (WALG) of the ShareProphets AIM-China Filthy Forty and First Derivatives (FDP) are not necessarily shorts – some, such as Walcom, couldn’t be shorted anyway. But they are sells.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: does the BCA RNS mean Neil Woodford's funds are at death's door

Published 150 days ago

I start with a report back on my torture of last night. Then I look at a day of woe for Neil Woodford, commenting on the Kier (KIE) debacle which has shown him at his arrogant and reckless worst. Then I ask questions about share trades announced late yesterday in BCA marketplace (BCA), I look at Sosandar (SOS), Optibiotix (OPTI), Bluebird Merchant Ventures (BMV), Yu (YU.) and at Avanti Comunications (AVN).

ShareProphets RNS Translation Service: Yu Group ‘fesses up (again) as shares collapse another 22%

Published 150 days ago

And so at last we have the results of the forensic accounting review which followed the confession from AIM-listed Yu Group (YU.) on 24 October 2018 that its accounts were, in effect, a work of sheer fiction and has seen the company’s £12 million placing at £10 per share being investigated by the FCA. We already knew that the bill would be around £10 million – but now it is going to be around £13 million. As ever, the ShareProphets  RNS Translation Service is on hand to help us understand all this (original in bold).

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: From 5.30 tonight think of me dear listeners as I undergo sheer torture

Published 151 days ago

I start by explaining that torture and it involves sociology lecturers. I then move onto explaining why Roland "fatty" Cornish is the utterly unacceptable face of crony capitalism. Then moving from the undeserving rich to the needy,  I ask you to give a few quid to Woodlarks HERE. I then look at Frontera (FRR) where the silence is deafening, Amur (AMC), Audioboom (BUST), Angus Energy (ANGS), UK Oil & Gas (UKOG), F*ck Yu (YU.) and finally at Gulf Marine (GMS) which is about to discover that just because it is Christmas that won't stop the banksters being total bastards. There is no season of goodwill for that profession.

F*CK YU – now the FCA investigates as suspicions of securities fraud mounts

Published 151 days ago

On Monday I wondered out loud what was happening about the forensic investigation into various accounting matters – including accrued income recognition and impairment of trade debtors at Yu Group (YU.). Then there was the small matter of a £12 million placing on the back of FY17 accounts which now appear to be somewhat questionable. Well blow me down with a feather: now the FCA has notified the company that it intends to conduct an investigation and the shares (which I called a bargepole of the highest order on the initial ‘fessing up of 24th October) have now fallen below half of the IPO price of March 2016.

YU – all silent in run up to Christmas (so far….)

Published 153 days ago

Back on 24th October, AIM-listed Yu Group (YU.) issued a devastating RNS regarding accrued income recognition, impairments of trade debtors and the shares collapsed 80%. Then on 5th November the company announced that it had appointed PWC and DLA Piper to carry out independent forensic investigations and promised to update the market in due course. So how about that update?

Fuck Yu! Shares crash 80% as accounting review commences. Uh oh….. surely this is another £12m of AIM fraud?

Published 207 days ago

AIM-listed Yu Group (YU.) only joined the Casino back in March 2016, via a placing at 185p. Since then it has been a one-way street for shareholders, with the stock rising to a peak of over £14 in March of this year. And then the Finance Director resigned…..
