Notes from Underground: The Teddy Bears picnic

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.

ShareProphets readership increases every week - we can tell because we're a registration site and if you unsubscribe, you are kicked off the site. We don't have a dead subscription list like other, lesser, sites.

But this week, we jumped up  housands both in page views and readers. Why? Our coverage of the Rangers FC and the the Dave King's antics.

You think Quindell, Cloudtag, or Worthington fans are enthused? You haven't come across Scottish football fans.

For those keeping track, the first non-Tom article on the leaderboard technically is Igas – hats off to the board by Nigel Somerville at an unfashionable #30.

In the past seven days, 63,356 unique readers read 100,904 pages on ShareProphets. The circulation of the Investors Chronicle is c30,000. Shares is less than half of that. To our critics who think we do not count, we say think again.

Our top 10 most-read stories this week were:

  1. Dave King on the hook for £14m - forced to bid 20p for Rangers FC and caned by Takeover Panel
  2. Rule Breaker Dave King spouts 100% bullshit after being told he must make £14 million Rangers bid
  3. It took a year but my "insanity" call on Concha 100% validated
  4. A Cloudtag owning moron writes to Tom Winnifrith
  5. Tom Winnifrith Bearcast - Treating White Van man & the JAM's with Contempt - Chancellor Hammond Sucks
  6. Most of Bowleven board ousted at GM - the bastards depart with no grace at all
  7. Independent Resources down 30% but valuation insane
  8. Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Bob Diamond Panmure Gordon & a crap industry
  9. Even at the bitter end Bowleven's scumbag boss Kevin Hart treats shareholders with contempt as he falls on his sword
  10. Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: On dangerous ground telling a joke about crap Scottish Football
