We are used to seeing professors and lecturers at low grade universtities and former polytechnics espousing utter nonsense as they indoctrinate young folk at what have become intolerant left wing madrassas. But you would have hoped that Bristol University would be above that. Think again, Meeet Professor Lewandowsky.Wednesday 13 November 2019
There are no guests in this week’s show which is sponsored by Open Orphan PLC (ORPH). It is just me and I start with a phone call from a young man urging me to buy a cannabis stock. Then I look at why you are bound to lose money in junior mining and hydrocarbon plays. Finally I discuss the Golden Rule of Investing: Don’t buy shares that are almost certain to go down. If you like this and can’t wait seven days for more of the same and are tired of being a cheapskate you should listen to my Bearcast every day.
In today’s podcast I consider the view that the Tories are certain to win thanks to the partial withdrawal from the General Election fray of the Brexit Party. I look at Brady (BRY), Sirius (SXX), Infrastrata (INFA), Iconic (ICON), Tissue Regenix (TRX), Mereo Pharma (MPH) and Eco Animal Healthcare (EAH) which might just offer some value now.
Bet against the great Northern Bear Waseem Shakoor at your peril. He is invariably right and his ability to spot frauds and overpromotes is uncanny. So I asked the great man what he considered the five most overvalued stocks on the AIM casino. With an answer that will make him even more reviled on the Bulletin Boards, Waseem said:
AIM dog Brady (BRY) will shortly be taken over by PE firm Hanover at 10p a share. If the deal is not supported by shareholders the company will go bust. I have already twice written to the FCA and AIM Regulation demanding that they investigate how Brady and its Nomad Cenkos mislead investors. Today the scale of that deception has become clear.
So there is a Plan B right? Well sort of. But it changes nothing at Sirius Minerals (SXX). It is still almost certainly a total wipeout for shareholders whatever the company says about an update on its “strategic review.”
For some reason, Britain’s most disgraced fund manager held this AIM dog in his Equity Income Fund though the chances of it paying a dividend made my chances of getting lucky with Cheryl Cole look like a nailed down sure fire certainty. Today there is another body blow, clinical failure, but the real issue, if you do the maths, is looming insolvency.
I start the podcast discussing legalisng cannabis, I cover the idea of investing in it HERE. Then I look at coverage of disgraced Neil Woodford in the Sunday Times and in the Mail on Sunday c/o Jeff Prestridge. Mr Presstrip has sunk to a new all time low and both papers cast a stain on an entire profession.
I fear that it all looks very bleak for Management Resource Solutions (MRS) a company we have red flagged her numerous times. In this podcast I look at the big red flags and other companies flying the same sort of red flags.
Firstly so many thanks to all of you who donated to the Woodlarks Christnas Grotto appeal. 101% of our target has now been reached so I’ll call it a day. Thank you again. In today’s podcast I also discuss Big Dish (DISH), and Dev Clever (DEV) two examples of why you should never invest in an IPO and I have data to back that up. I look at Tern (TERN) and at Sound Energy (SOU), shame on James Parsons, and then in detail at Velocys (VLS).
Analyst Sam Laasko says that 2015 was the bottom of the bear market for gold, and he doubts that we will ever see those levels again. Gold may retest the 2016 highs over the next month and then head higher by the end of this year.
