PERSONAL, UNDILUTED VIEWS FROM TOM WINNIFRITH

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: 550kg of olives harvested in one day, I'm cream crackered

Share this article with your comrades in revolutionary capitalism

I am utterly wiped out after day one of what looks like being a cracking harvest. A full photo report is HERE. In the podcast I discuss votes tomorrow in Austria and Italy and what they mean and why we bears are feeling good about the lack of a Santa Rally. Trump was Santa this year and that rally is over. I explain why I disagree with Malcolm Stacey's article today. I then look at a number of AIM stocks set to slide and why, as I refer to Steve's piece earlier. In focus: Avanti Communications (AVN), Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO), Telit (TCM), Boohoo (BOO), Tungsten (TUNG), Fastjet (FJET), Cloudtag (CTAG), African Potash (AFPO) and I have a few words about Worthington (WRN)

UKLA & Worthington - this is surreal

Share this article with your comrades in revolutionary capitalism

This is beyond satire. On Friday night, as it does every night, the UKLA published via RNS its list of companies subject to potential bids and guess what? Worthington is still there. Worthington as in the company where an administrator has now been appointed and a first gazette published? Yes that is the one. But it gets better.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast - Please God let those emails arrive so I can ruin someone's weekend

Share this article with your comrades in revolutionary capitalism

I have had some emails read out to me and they are dynamite. I hope they will land in my in-box soon. I shall pop into the small church on the way to the Greek Hovel tonight to say a prayer for their safe arrival as if they arrive some folks are in deep deep merde and it will certainly be an ouzo o'clock moment.  Please join me in my prayers. Elsewhere I look at Boohoo.com (BOO), Avanti Communications (AVN), Cloudtag (CTAG), Mosman Oil & Gas (SHITE), African Potash (FRAUD), 88 Energy (HYPE) and with that I wish you all a happy weekend.

Metal Tiger & BMR Group Non Merger: the real story?

Share this article with your comrades in revolutionary capitalism

I realise that there are some out there calling for the head of Alex Borelli after the failed merger attempt between Metal Tiger (MTR) and BMR (BMR), two companies where he is the CEO. I admit it all looks odd. But my initial position is based on the assumption that Borelli saved BMR, going in after the previous boss stole all the cash. Fundamentally he is a good and honest man so surely he would not do anything dodgy. Having dug around I put to you another hypothesis.

Bear raider Waseem Shakoor warns again on Cloudtag - share price crash accelerating

Share this article with your comrades in revolutionary capitalism

I sense that Waseem and I will not be getting that many Christmas cards this year from the morons who still hold shares in Cloudtag (CTAG) but we did warn you time and time again. Waseem has now issued another stark warning: If you think the share price meltdown is going to reverse, think again. It is about to accelerate! The great man writes:

Photo Article: day one of the olive harvest 2016 at the Greek Hovel

Share this article with your comrades in revolutionary capitalism

In 2014 we harvested 1.65 metric tonnes (1650 kg) at the Greek hovel which yielded 566 litres of olive oil. Last year was a disaster - 550 kg and I fell and ended up in hospital. So far 2016 has been a triumph. I did not fall. Albeit with a few breaks I lasted the full working day and we have already harvested 550 kg with only a fraction of the trees finished. It is a triumph but I am shattered.

The first thing of note is that we have new technology

Half a Cow, Mad Vegans, Daft Millennials and the new £5 note

Share this article with your comrades in revolutionary capitalism

It appears that the new five pound note contains traces of tallow which is fat from a cow. Very small traces as I shall demonstrate below but that has not stopped more than 100,000 snowflake millennials signing an online petition calling for the notes to be withdrawn and the bankers responsible to be hung drawn and quartered. 

Okay I made the second bit up but an awful lot of folks are getting angry on behalf of vegans, Hindus, Jews and all sort of other minorities. As it happens the Jews are quite cool about it. The board of deputies says no Jews would have a problem unless they tried to eat the notes. How sensible but elsewhere the faux anger grows. It is the sort of faux anger
