Disclosure: I have no positions in any stocks mentioned, and no plans to initiate any positions within the next 72 hours. 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.
Strike two. The September reporting season has just taken its second victim of the 17 remaining members of the ShareProphets AIM-China Filthy Forty. Asian Citrus (ACHL) has announced that it can’t get its numbers out by tomorrow’s deadline for the HK Stock Exchange in the wake of allegations over conflicting bank statements and books which have triggered further audit work so as to get to the bottom of it. Thus the shares are to remain suspended over here (having had the plug pulled yesterday lunch time, “pending an announcement”). Oh dear Mr Marcus Stuttard, the Sham Sheriff of AIM, surely this could not be yet another China FRAUD on the Filthy Forty coming to light, could it? But I thought there was no problem of fraud on AIM….
