Any volunteers for the olive harvest at the Greek Hovel?

That time of year is dawning again. This will be, from memory, my fifth olive harvest up at the Greek Hovel. Of course it is no longer a hovel but a luxury eco palace with heating! And so, although temperatures in the Mani dip to near zero during the night, if you want to spend a week, rent free in a warm house in the middle of nowhere, now is your chance.

Will Panorama credit the folk who exposed Neil Woodford on Monday: here are our top 50 exposes since 2015

I see that Roger Lawson of ShareSoc is today praising the FT’s coverage of Neil Woodford. How sad and predictable that the establishment engages in mutual masturbation rathing than seeking the truth. The FT is the paper that publisshed a blow job interview with Woodford as recently as April 2019. Of course Roger is not mentioning our work in his little read blog posts or praising the folks who called this one out with more than 1000 articles and podcasts since 2015. But I hope that the BBC does recognise who was Woodford’s nemesis on Monday. In case it has forgotten here are our 50 most read articles on the ex fund manager

GOTCHA! Another win for the Sheriff of AIM: Peter Shea of Daniel Stewart, Quindell & China fraud infamy no longer in financial services. Its official!

Before it went bust, City advisor Daniel Stewart (DAN) was one of the firms that made the grave mistake of sending me a fascist lawyers letter. Natch I told it to get stuffed. The brother of boss Peter Shea threatened to beat me up but when I pirched up outside his firm’s Christmas Party a few weeks later he scuttled away like the coward he is. Daniel Stewart floated the mega fraud Quindelland numerous China frauds, covering up for firms like Naibu even after it knew it was a fraud.  Our extensive coverage of this company and of its boss Peter Shea continued even as he tried new dodgy tricks this year as you can see HERE. But now we have good news, as you can see below…

Oooh Er MRS… its death or mega dilution by Christmas: Yet another win for the Sheriff of AIM

You cannot say that you were not warned repeatedly by this website about AIM uber dog Management Resource Solutions (MRSas you can see HERE. The latest news is grim indeed and raises the spectre of a complete wipeout for shareholders as opposed merely to being diluted to oblivion. I think we can score this as yet another win for The Sheriff of AIM.

Expose: AIM Casino listed Amur Minerals and the great director share buying spoof

On 17 April 2018 AIM wannabee miner Amur Minerals (AMC) announced to great fanfare a scheme whereby directors and other senior managers would collectively buy £5000 worth of shares a month for a year. At the time, wityh the shares at 4.5p to sell,  I wondered if it was a spoof. But as each monthly announcement of director share buying came out some folks were encouraged. Today, with the shares at 1.65p to sell, I demonstrate that this whole scheme was a spoof.

If it sounds too good to be true….which brings me back to Versarien

On the occasion of the news that Neil Woodford had been fired as manager of his soon to be wound down flagship Equity Income Fund, the great man posted a comment on his Pravda-esque blog saying that he could not accept the decision.  His arrogance did not surprise me. What shocked me, as I noted HERE, were the comments by unit holders which were universally supportive of Neil.
