Galvan loves Optibiotix too

Disclosure: Financial Investigative Media Limited, which is not owned by Tom Winnifrith but by a trust for his dependants, owns shares in companies mentioned in this article. I wrote this article myself, and it expresses my own opinions. I am not receiving compensation for it (other than from ShareProphets). I have no business relationship with any company whose stock is mentioned in this article.

We own the shares so we are totally biased and a reader who owns the shares is also biased too but asked us to get our mitts on a recent report from Galvan on Optibiotix (OPTI) and publish it. So here you are.

    Tom, I hope you are not giving credence to Galvan for that report. Take it from someone who has had dealings with them, that they are a bunch amateurs. They didn’t start tipping OPTI until the SP was around 60p. They sent me am e-mail asking why I hadn’t responded to their recommendation. It gave me great pleasure to inform them that I had bought OPTI @ 20.5p and goofed by selling @ 40p. This is the same outfit that recommended AFREN as a BUY at over 100p! They had earlier suggested buying GFK at 150p and tucking them away. According to their weekly report in 2009/10 that Lloyds bank was worth 300p. RBS should be above £30 now according to their analysts at around the same time. Oh yes Tom, a favourite of yours, AVANTI, I originally bought them because you reckoned, like that idiot Bulford that AVANTI would be worth £21.00 after lauching Hylas 2. I sold them at £3.85 realising that I had been had. Galvan wrote that AVANTI was a BUY at just over £3.00…….When they phone me (often) they never fail to mention the awards they have won from ADVFN!! Galvan, in my experience is full of what you describe UKOG’s ramp news today.
    Keep up the good work.
