Quindell Bulletin Board Morons – Abusing Me Strengthens Me, It won’t save you

The attacks on me from shareholders in Quindell (QPP) continue. Yesterday say them produce & circulate a defamatory video alleging inter alia that I had an undeclared short position, that my restaurant was unprofitable, that I was very ugly, that all women hated me and that the Quindell Share price was zooming ahead. How very profound. Ugly is a matter of opinion, all the other points are demonstrably untrue.

The video talked about my past career failings. As those slip further and further into history I am not sure of their relevance but I do not hide them. Funds I managed had an okay 2010 and stormingly successful 2011 but a disastrous 2012 – and I was in charge of them until April 2012. Clearly my time at Rivington was not a great success in its later stages although I am not sure that I am entirely to blame. Whatever, I lost my job and my entire net worth and was left worth minus £250,000. I have learned a painful lesson.

But that was a while back.  Heck I may be ugly but I have a stunningly pretty younger wife so you think it bothers me? I know that I have no short position in Quindell. And the Real Man Pizza Company restaurant is profitable.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Shame on PWC & Numis, Hat tip Jim Mellon and ouzo for a vindicated Lucian Miers

Jim Mellon says he loves listrening to my podcasts and has sent over a very interesting article following the pulled We Work IPO which I discuss at length. The into PureCircle (PURE) which Lucian has called brilliantly, notably here. Yesterday’s shock warning tells us so much about the disgraceful apathy of folks like Numis and PWC when evidence of aggressive accounting was there for all to see over many years. I discuss another company shown to be swmming with no trunks. It will not be the last.
