I got up early to do part one of my Christmas Carol series today. I had been lying in bed thinking about it and some of the jokes for hours. I hope you enjoyed it. Part two will be tomorrow when we also start our tips of the year, a series of 20. Today I discuss Versarien (VRS), Cellular Goods (CBX) and “the gang” and Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO) where – with the shares now at less than half of par – matters are getting critical and the final collapse could be imminent.

I have commented extensively on this issue. I cannot understand how Odey is not both creating a false market in shares in Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO) – so inflating its AUM – but also knowingly and deliberately losing money for clients. I have written to the FCA asking it to examine the matter
Request that you investigate Odey Asset Management over share dealings in Advanced Oncotherapy

I start with macro economics and why I am so bearish on UK PLC. Then to Purplebricks (PURP) and the housebuilders in light of today’s shocking warning from the UK banks on mortgage lending prospects for 2023. Then Parsley Box (MEAL), Vast Resources (VAST) as the trap door approaches and Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO, Odey Asset Management and the FCA. I may be wrong about this but I’d like the FCA to have a butcher’s. Finally a big thank you from me on helping us raise all the money needed for the Woodlarks Christmas Grotto appeal.

Study showcases the potential superiority of LIGHT! Shouts today’s RNS from Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO). That would be the LIGHT Proton system that is not yet up and running? Yes that one. Great. So, who did the study? Er…

I do not believe that Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO) will ever generate a cent of positive free cashflow as the demand for the proton therapy services it will offer at some point in 2023 is, in my view, already fully catered for with existing capacity. Others, notably a fund management firm run by a chap who looks remarkably like Daddy Pig, father of Peppa, disagree but what we might agree on its that, until late 2023, there is no doubt that Advanced will continue to guzzle cash. Which makes the next bailout placing only a matter of time.

Sometimes I switch off my PC thinking that was not a very good podcast. Most days I am content but today is one of those days when I think “that was a bloody good podcast” I start of with why this website is not free and how you need to change business models if the world changes and then as to the strange idea that we have a “house view” on any given stock. That is with reference to ITM Power (ITM) which I then cover in detail (more ouzo for me and for Peter Brailey, cold cabbage water for comrade Malcolm Stacey of the 6th Guardianista peaceand flower power corps). I also look in detail at the spoof from Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO), Deepverge (DVRG) en passant, but which is covered in more detail HERE, and Bidstack (BIDS) after my bombshell expose c/o Winnileaks earlier. A good day’s work. Now I can go and weed my onion patch in peace.

I mention, en passant, our next PM the economically illiterate Rishi Sunak and how boorish I find Tory MPs. Then I look at Vast Resources (VAST), Pure Gold (PUR), Mirriad (MIRI), Deepverge (DVRG) and Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO) and the fat conceit that is Crispin Odey.

I start with a reference to this personal podcast about Christmas Day 1914 HERE. Then it is onto Ironveld Resources (IRON), Kefi Gold & Copper (KEFI), Skinbiotherapeutics (SBTX), Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO) and Argo Blockchain (ARB) and it is one of two more reasons given to book your seats at ShareStock on September 10 NOW HERE
162 days ago
The real problem Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO) faces, as I explained here, is that there is not enough demand for its Harley Street proton centre to make a profit even when its LIGHT system is up and running. But for now, LIGHT is not up and running, the company is guzzling cash and that brings us to today’s latest keep the LIGHTs on fund raise. Advance really is taking the piss with its excuses.

I start with gardening news and a bit sbout ShareStock 2022 and 2023 and urge prompt ticket booking for the former HERE. Why Victoria (VCP) is a zero in waiting is a matter for Sharestock but today I look at why Cineworld (CINE) has not collapsed yet but why it will. Then there is Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO) and why it MUST end in tears whatever PL says. Finally I comment on the lunacy of Malcolm Stacey. I think he meant to send today’s column to the Guardian letters page, it is insanity writ large.

I should declare that I am a shareholder in this company. I bought 1 share a few years ago so that I could attend its AGM to quiz the management on the catalogue of lies they had told to investors. Then covid struck. On a properly regulated market Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO) would have been given the order of the boot years ago, but this is AIM.
182 days ago
I start with the trials of ordering portable loos for ShareStock which I have now done. More than 40% of the seats are now taken so with 7 weeks to go please book yours HERE. Then onto how Barclays (BARC) may strand me in Greece and why the Mrs reckons I am wrong on how gay is your stockbroker. Then it is onto Skinbiotherapeutics (SBTX), Optibiotix (OPTI), Ben’s Creek (BEN) and Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO).

Yesterday all of you said i should sack him. But the sad old geezer has texted me today.I relay what he wrote and ask, in today’s edition of the Moral Maze, if I should still sack him? The answer I think you will give, bears direct relation to both musicMagpie (MMAG) and Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO) which I discuss. I also cover Petropavlovsk (POG), Amala Foods (DISH), Zak Mir, Richard “Nobody Likes me and I do not care” Jennings and Lift Ventures whose IPO seems not to be quite as “imminent” as Zak told us it was two months ago.
312 days ago
I start with a few words on some odious remarks made by Ukranian President Zelensky and a few more on Radio 5 Live Rugby commentary which was just so bad it was off the scale. Then it is onto share buying which is a sell signal, referencing two Nigel articles this weekend on UK Oil & Gas (UKOG) and Advanced Oncotherapy(AVO) but bringing in incidents at Amur Minerals (AMC), Nanosynth (NNN) when it was the Strat Aero fraud and Jim Mellon’s Condor Gold (CNR)

Happy St David’s Day and happy pancake day. I start with the spread betters and Russian stocks notably Petropavlovsk (POG), Eurasia (EUA) and Polymetal (POLY). Then I look in detail at MGC Pharmaceiticals (MXC), how it legged over investors in November and is a massive short even now before turning to Vast Resources (VAST), Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO), Cellular Goods (CBX),Novacyt (NCYT) and Avacta (AVCT) my big sector short which has seen its shares collapse to 46p but could easily halve again within weeks.

Nigel Somerville is too nice a guy to ask if a company has been a very naughty boy indeed. I am not. I note his piece earlier on Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO) and it seems obvious that, while Nomad Allenby probably does not give a flying feck, the question should be asked. And so I have written to the Oxymorons at AIM Regulation asking them to investigate

I start with a few notes on tomorrow, logistics and the funeral of Uncle Chris Booker. Then it is onto Yourgene (YGEN), Thomas Cook (TCG), Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO), Amur Minerals (AMC), and the dog St James House (SJH) formerly known as the Boxhill hound.
1446 days ago
In today;s bearcast I discuss Alpha Growth (ALGW), Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO) and Optibiotix (OPTI) as well as Spain, the latest crisis in the special place in hell that is the EU.

I start with the latest developments on Julie Meyer and hint at what is coming next from myself and also from John Galt. Julie you ain't seen nothing yet. Praise be the Lord. Then it is onto Westminster Group (WSG) and someone almost as loathsome as Meyer, that is to say ex Tory MP fat Tony Baldry. Then I look at Eden Reseearch (EDEN) which fat Tone knows well, Pantheon Resources (PANR), Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO), the tossers at the FT, Jubilee Metals (JLP) and other Beuafort Securities victims and Interserve (IRV) and the tools at the FCA.

And the next video is the bears with myself, the Dark Destroyer Matt Earl, the Bard of the Boleyn Lucian Miers and a cameo by Nigel Somerville on Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO). On the agenda Telit (TCM), Tesla (TSLA), Mitie (MTO), IQE (IQE), RM2 (RM2),Avanti Communications (AVN), AIQ (AIQ) and a good stack more.

In the main bearcast of the day I start by asking what payoff disgraced Dave Whitby got at worthless insolvent POS Andalas (ADL)? And were mugs who backed the latest placing told where much of their cash was going ( i.e. to Whitby). Feel free to contact me if you are an Andalas owning mug. The fat Lady arrives at Nighthawk (HAWK) and looks to be in the wings at Nature Group (NGR) while new problems emerge at Imaginatik (IMTK) - a former Rob Terry fave but I speculate on bigger worries that the Quindell fraudster faces - and at Management Consulting (MMC). I think the fat Lady may well also have an appointment with Widecells Group ( WDC) shortly. I comment on 4 reasons why Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO) shares may be falling and on looming results at Optibiotix (OPTI), where we own shares.

Ok this is embarassing but I will admit on tape what we were up to. It is our guilty pleasure and involves Deacon, Scarlett, Gunner, Avery and Will Lexington. Then I look at WPP (WPP) and the deeply unsatisfactory and unfair way Sir Martin Sorrell has "resigned" - this smells all wrong. Finally I look at why Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO) and Frontera (FRR) are not answering or evading questions - it is because they are both bad companies. If you like bearcasts then remember that at UK Investor on April 21 one of many highlights will be a live bearcast with myself and Paul Scott.

Not this one but one I recorded yesterday with my pal the king fraudster Sam Antar who created the original Panama Pump. Sam was on fine form and I shall unleash that podcast in a couple of weeks time but it was awesome. I pick up on a few themes from it and discuss Ascent Resources (AST), Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO) - read Nigel's brilliant piece, about a company where I own 1 share so I can attend GMs, HERE - and Strat Aero (AERO). If you like bearcasts then remember that at UK Investor on April 21 one of many highlights will be a live bearcast with myself and Paul Scott.

Today Joshua and I have coffee with the fit young mums then we are off to go to his first business lunch. I have a work lunch and my boy is coming too. That is the deal for folks wanting to meet up on a Wednesday to Friday. I start today's podcast with ADVFN (AFN) and On-Line (ONL) talking pure 100% unadulterated crypto bollocks. Then it is onto Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO) - good news yes but given its track record of allowing insider dealing, misleading customers and investors and, arguably, wholesale securities fraud I would not buy. I look at The People's Operator (TPOP) and question the wording of today's RNS - the shares are 71% down but this could well be toast by Christmas - look at the wording again! Finally a few words on the latest news from the boiler room and the dog Sabien (SNT)
1936 days ago
Some companies are so transparent. I look at the RNS from Savannah Resources (SAV), do the maths and predict a placing within weeks. I then crow about one I called earlier, Applied Graphene Materials (AGM). Then it is onto Interquest (ITQ) which is back on the AIM casino thanks to Nomad Allenby, a firm that I take to task for being morally bankrupt. I look at Johnston Press (JPR) which is nothing to do with Luke Johnson who is also mentioned. I then look at Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO) and i3 Energy (i3E) as well as the dog Haydale (HAYD)
1942 days ago
I must rush. The fit young mums are waiting. Ahead of that, Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO) really should comment on the weirdest rumour which I relay. Redcentric (RCN) answers one question but many remain. Then Sound Energy (SOU) hype takes the acid test of a trade sale of its Italian assets and the real value is exposed. Sound really is so much hot air. Finally a look at the CVA and rape of shareholders and creditors of Kin Group (KIN) by broker Peterhouse and the new, crony capitalist, directors.

Links with Arsenal, massive cash burn, China, always missing goals (like the Arse) - that was BNN Technology (BNN), shares in which have been suspended today along with its CEO and China boss. I look at BNN in detail plus Telit (TCM), UK Oil & Gas (UKOG) after my weekend pieces HERE and HERE. I cover Blenheim (BNR) after its joke RNS today and also the dog Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO) after its latest spoof. The Mrs says my headline is crude & arguably homophobic, but I know you will love it and it is not if you take it in context.

Shares in Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO ) are again tumbling on this fine summer's day. Oh what joy it is to be alive. 350p at peak ramp less than two years ago, they are now just 10.75p to sell. Ouch, I just love the smell of burning share certificates belonging to Bulletin Board Morons in the morning. So what crisis looms? Take your pick.

The stench of desperation at AIM POS Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO) is overpowering.It knows that insolvency looms, that the money is running out fast ( within weeks?) and that a blizzard of share sales from death spiral provider Bracknor will obliterate the share price in the last few days. The board know it. The advisers must know it. But they cannot bring themselves to admit it. The pretence goes on for a while yet. And thus today we have an RNS.
2040 days ago
In a sense this is not that relevant as Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO) is within a couple of months of running out of cash and going tits up but on a point of principle I have written to the my very good friends at the Financial Reporting Council as there are aspects of Advanced's 2016 annual report and accounts which stink more than a pile of rotting kippers left out at a sewage farm in the scorching midday heat. The letter follows:
2043 days ago
AIM-listed Advanced Oncotherapy(AVO) has released its final results RNS for 2016 with four days to go before deadline day Bully for Advanced. But there are no notes to the accounts and why is there no no auditor’s statement – the very things that we were looking for. What is the company hiding? We are told that the report WILL be made availlable on the website but hang on...this is crucial!
2044 days ago
Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO) shares have fallen from a ramptastic peak of 350p to just 13.5p to sell as at last Friday. But sell you should as I explained again today HERE. The question is what will the shares be trading at ( mid) as at next Friday which is a critical deadline. What do you think? Let's gloat on the professional graves of scumbag crony capitalist Dr Michael Sinclair, arch share ramper Alan Green and PR low life Paul "Queenie" McManus. With a deadline of 7 AM Monday 26th vote now in the poll below.

The underlying problem with Milestone Group (MSG) is that it is a crap business that never generates any cash. Thus in order to keep CEO Deborah White in the lifestyle to which she has become accustomed and to keep paying crony capitalist advisers such as shamed PR firm Walbrook (Eden, Fusionex, Advanced Oncotherapy etc) it relies on bailout placing after bailout placing with shareholders seeing value destroyed every time.
2057 days ago
Shares in doomed Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO) are now 15.25p to sell, compared to a 25p nominal price. That means that as death spiral provider Bracknor desperately tried to convert c£3 million on loan notes into shares to flog to eliminate its exposure under the spoof arrangement with Advanced it will demand fees of 40p for every £1 of loan note converted. As it scrambles to convert notes and flog shares before the fat lady waddles onto stage from the wings (where she is already warming up), the share price will continue to tank making things even worse. So what to do?
2062 days ago
With its hand forced by my article HERE, Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO) has clarified, i.e. changed, the terms of its death spiral deal with loan sharks Bracknor. It states "This reaffirms Bracknor's prior and on-going support for the Company and its shareholders." Dr Michael Sinclair you are talking bollocks. It has changed a death spiral to a death spiral on steroids.
2066 days ago
Wakey wakey Michael Sinclair and the other tossers who run Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO). Time to get out of the luxury gym ( membership fees paid by grateful shareholders) – you need to be issuing a statement don’t you? Bracknor? 10 days? Capital Reorganisation? Ring any bells? Come on, call your useless PR man Paul Queenie McManus and tell him to stop promoting the Eden fraud and get a release ready for you.

Heck my family has been waiting 40 years for this day as I explain HERE you must allow me to have some fun! To the markets and I have a detailed look at Sabien Technology (SNT) which is talking absolute bollocks today, at Johnston Press (JPR) and then at China New Energy (CNEL), today's ramp of choice but which stinks to high heaven. Then I discuss whether I have been too harsh on Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO). The answer is that I have not been hard enough. Ahead of a GM on Friday which I am attending the stance remains sell with a target of 0p.

My father is being charmed and buttered up by the quacks at Warwick Hospital and I am off there shortly for a pre operation chat. Ahead of that I look at Tesco (TSCO) and its fines today - we really have got white collar crime all wrong in this country. Then I look at Genel (GENL), Tasty (TAST) which is really not very tasty at all, Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO) which is is utterly inedible and Sound Energy (SOU) where the issue is valuation. Surely the good news is in the price already?
2133 days ago
It has arrived! My £52 costs and 32p investment in one share in AIM dog Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO) is not money wasted.

It seems as if my father has drunk all the ouzo. Who can blame him? But how will I celebrate if the fraud Cloudtag (CTAG) is booted off AIM today? Join in the fun with our Cloudtag termination clock HERE. Elsewhere I look at Bowleven (BLVN), gosh I loathe its management team, Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO), also run by tossers, and Strategic Equity Capital (SEC).
2134 days ago
Ho ho ho. Even as it faces insolvency those wags at Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO) do so with a sense of humour as they try to spoof us all with news of an even more desperate financing which will keep the lights on until late June. Dr Michael Sinclair you should go on the stage. You really are a hoot.
2136 days ago
I comment on the hopeless response of smug MPs and the established media to yesterday's terror attack on my own website in a podcast HERE. On the markets I look at expectations management at Next (NXT), at how we know or knew about the balance sheet at Toople (TOOP) covered HERE by Cynical Bear or Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO) heading for 0p and covered in detail by me earlier HERE. I look at Public Services Properties (PSPI ) and what its AIM casino departure says about RTOs and contingent liabilities - which reminds me again of New World Oil & Gas (NEW). Finally I have a detailed look at the strange world of Paternoster Resources (PRS), not a stock you have to own in any way. PS Cynical Bear is not me. Can you see any typos in his articles?
2136 days ago
It is just eight days to the GM of Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO) where shareholders are being asked to approve the issue of gazillions of new shares for the Bracknor death spiral. Since the alternative is going bust within weeks if not days then the result is a gimme although I intend attending - as the owner of 1 share - to ask some searching questions. But the collapse in the share price - the stock is now 31.5p mid, 30p bid tells you there are even bigger issues and that Advanced is, quite possibly toast whatever.
2136 days ago
Clearly this is the story of the day. I reflect on this from various angles. I then move onto Franchise Brands (FRAN) shares in which surged 16% forcing a suspension. No insider dealing here guv, walk on, walk on. Then it is onto Bowleven (BLVN), Yolo (YOLO), Starcom (STAR) which I may have called Starvest but I meant Starcom, Van Elle (VANL), Nyota (NYO) and finally the uber dog Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO) which is in freefall. Hah! Death spiral shylocks Bracknor your spoof is not working is it! On the subject of terror I mention that evil bastard Martin McGuinness.You should not speak ill of the dead but for this unapologetic murderer and for those in the media who praise him as a good man I make an exception HERE. Mr McGuinness was a wicked man who sought no salvation in apology and repentance and, if there is a hell, his soul is right now burning at the heart of it.

Dad and I got back from the hospital and were sitting down to lunch. water for me, wine for him. After a morning with a range of Shipmans he deserved it. Who should bound in but the vicar from our old village of Byfield. I told him that I had recently written an article about wringing his neck HERE. He then gushed out a stream of left wing views on Trump, Brexit and other matters that were so barking mad that even my Guardian reading father was a bit taken aback. A bitter attack on Uncle Chris Booker was the final straw. No wonder the CofE is going to the dogs. On the podcast that followed I cover Orogen (ORE) where we are in and backing Adam Reynolds again, Nyota (NYO), Audioboom (BOOM), Andalas Energy (ADL) and Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO).

Death spiral provider Bracknor does not buy shares in companies. It loans the desperate, cash at pound of flesh rates which it then converts into shares at discounted rates and flogs to mug punters. That is the classic death spiral model. But to get such a death spiral away it needs a perception of market liquidity and also to avoid a complete short term collapse of the share price. And that brings us to Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO).
2143 days ago
I have been greatly distracted not least dealing with this utterly brain dead and vile Cloudtag (CTAG) shareholder who has been spamming me with the most ghastly abuse all day. I look at the Bob Diamond bid for Panmure Gordon (PMR) and what it means for the wider broking/corporate advisory sector. I then turn to Premaitha (NIPT) and the wider issue of the pointlessness of commissioned research. I touch on Management Resource Solutions (MRS) in light of the news earlier HERE but now the way it is really trying to screw shareholders with a 5p placing. There is comment on Jubilee Platinum (JLP). Then it is back to two old favourites: Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO) and Milestone (MSG). Woof Woof.
2143 days ago
Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO) is, as you know, utterly desperate to create buying interest in its shares so that death spiral shysters Bracknor can dump £13.7 million of equity onto the market over the next year. That is not going well and so Advanced today boasts that it has paid investment analyst prostitutes for hire, Hardman, to publish a glossy note. This report is so unbelievably unbalanced that I can only assume that Hardman outsourced the work to the Bulletin Board Morons on the LSE Asylum. Folks can see through this shite and the shares are down by a penny at just 40p bid which is very bad news for Advanced as explained HERE.

Heading to zero, serial liar Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO) has today called a GM to approve the issue of a blizzard of shares to obliterate its share price via death spiral. More on that later but the documentation throws up another issue other than the lies refered to earlier HERE, why will Advanced NOT come clean on short selling by death spiral provider Bracknor.
2150 days ago
Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO) has today called its GM to approve the issuance of more shares to feed the Bracknor Death Spiral - more on that later for the document is, like the company, a joke. But first lets go to a big fat monstrous lie it told last year to help get that bailout placing away in September.

I have already covered the admissions (HERE) and lies (HERE) flagged up in today's notice of a GM published by Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO). The great news is that the GM is on March 31 in London, a day when I shall be in the Capital. As the proud owner of 1 share bought earlier this week I shall be there for a bunfight. Just 32p for so much fun - bargain! Get your beer & popcorn ready. Why not come along to join me in giving the board hell over all the lies and other matters? There is free beer on me at Wedge Issue afterwards. But there is a far more serious problem for the shysters.

On the agenda today, I start with a twitter spat with Hugo Rifkind a man who is where he is today thanks to who is Daddy is not his innate lack of talent and who is tweeting nonsense about a matter he has no experience of. After that thrill there is news on UK Investor Show, nappy changing, the ethical dimension in investing in pharma companies, Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO), W Resources (WRES),Domino's Pizza (DOM) and a discussion about residential property and non resident speculators.
2151 days ago
I am beginning to think that the 32p I invested in buying one share in Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO) may be dead money sooner than I think. The silence on certain matters relating to the £11 million it owes Metric is deafening and leads me to believe that on March 31 this company could be insolvent. Or is it already insolvent? The first question is whether Advanced has breached covenants on the loan already and so is in technical default, i.e. insolvent. If that is the case investors should be told at once should they not. Perhaps hapless Nomad Stockdale might force a clarification of this matter?

Yesterday I asked Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO) to answer 16 questions. I regret to say that as at 12 noon today now undertaking had been given to answer the questions and that therefore I am now at war. As such as I celebrated International Women's day by having a good looking 28 year old blonde run her fingers through my hair I decided to buy one share in this POS company. Bring on the EGM and AGM says The Sheriff of AIM and I hope that other folks out there will also buy one share so that we can get the mothers on this board to answer some very valid questions. In this podcast i also look at how if I was running the fraud at Eden (EDEN) I would buy some time before all is revealed. I also comment on Solo Oil (SOLO) and on the budget and our irresponsible chancellor Hammond who is the real villain of sterling weakness, not Brexit.

Shares in Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO) are sliding again today. Last time I looked they were 32p bid and they are heading rapidly towards the 25p mark at which point Bracknor will not be able to forward sell/convert loan notes as explained HERE without GM sanction. Thus the loan shark death spiral provider - which is pro tem exposed to the tune of well over £1 million will be flogging shares as fast as it can. Meanwhile Advanced just won't answer my 16 questions HERE. But there is something else going on which you can see if you check out the Bulletin Boards and it is quite remarkable and shows this company is toast.
2153 days ago
Cynical Bear says that I am just being far too kind to Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO) with my 15 questions earlier today. Oddly I have yet to get an answer and nor will I as the company contemplates insolvency and other matters. But back to Mr Bear who says I should have asked a 16th question concerning another possible case of lying.

For years Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO) has ramped its shares to get away placing after placing with ramptastic investor presentations. But that was before I started asking all those horrible questions for which there was no answer. and Winnileaks started obtaining toxic leaked emails. Last night the company had a presentation in London. It has another in Zurich this morning. Warning Swiss folk and tax dodgers quotes about the London chinwag include "everyone left unhappy" and from a long term bull "I am just throwing in the towel." The shares have crashed by 23% to 36p bid so far today. The target for me remains 0p. But for those folks going to the Zurich meeting here here are 15 questions Advanced can't or won't answer:

If you object to bad language do not listen. The madness and corruption of AIM, the willingness of the crony capitalists to deceive investors to get away another placing just got to me. In today's podcast I cover Blur (BLUR) - but would commend young Steve's coverage which is superb HERE, FastForward (FFWD) - the Jim Mellon spoof - Advanced Oncotherapy (DOG), Independent Resources (IRG), Amur Minerals (AMC), Sunrise Resources (SRES) and Zenith Energy (ZEN).

When AIM uber dog Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO) announced that instead of going for non dilutive funding ( as no-one would provide it) it was being forced to resort to a dreadful £13 million death spiral from loan sharks Bracknor, its shares were 65p. When the death spiral started the shares were 58p. Now it just £100,000 of the death spiral loan notes on the first £1.3 million tranche converted, the shares are just 43p to sell. Bracknor now has three reasons to panic.

Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO) the company with sod all cash, that is a cash guzzler, with no sales and which has persistently misled both investors and customers has moved up a gear with its death spiral funding and the shares have fallen again to just 49p to sell. Boy how sleazey former director, the Blair crony, Lord Evans of Watford must be glad that he dumped all his shares at 120p just ahead of the last big placing and during a closed period. And there has been no sanction at all. Bully for him. Now back to the death spiral.

If you had raised £10 million for the AIM dog Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO) less than 5 months ago at 100p then your stance on the stock - at 54p-58p- would be some sort of buy. Oh no. broker Beaufort who did indeed raise that cash has today downgraded its stance to, what may be termed a corporate "hold" (i.e. sell) and makes it clear that the shares will fall allowing lower entry points. I should cocoa. Beaufort today opines after the Bracknor death spiral announcement of Friday - the underlines are mine:

Don't you just love our new Cloudtag (CTAG) countdown clock on the right hand side of this page? I am already assembling material old and new for this presentation at UK Investor but the clock is a jolly jape is it not? Elsewhere I never cease to wonder at the stupidity of some investors. I look at Amur (AMC) in this respect. I then look at Weatherly (WTI) which is telling you, plain as day, that its shares are worthless. I explain a few hard facts and ask new questions about Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO) and then have a butchers at Rosslyn Data (RDT) shares in which have just hit a new all time low. I wonder why? Smiley face, smiley face.

Yesterday I pointed out how the £13 million death spiral Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO) had signed with loan sharks Bracknor would see its share price collapse. It should but there is worse news in store - that of insolvency looming in just five weeks time. Insolvency you say? What are you talking about? Let me explain.
2166 days ago
I have noted before that some death spirals are in fact a decent way for companies to raise cash, cheaper and less share price destructive than a bucket shop placing. But the Bracknor deal announced today by Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO), which had promised non dilutive funding but clearly does not mean a word it says, as I explained here earlier, is a total rotter. It will crater the share price as Bracknor makes a killing. Let me explain why.

When it looks like placing ahoy, sounds like placing ahoy and smells like it is placing ahoy it usually is placing ahoy. I look at the numbers for Corero (CNS) and Amur Minerals (AMC). In this podcast threatened by the greed of morbidly obese three legged cat Oakley, I also cover NCC Group (NCC) following up from yesterday's late in the day article, Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO) Beowiulf (BEM) and TrakM8 (TRAK). I also look at the laughable PR of worthless crap company Fitbug (FITB). There is a stand alone bearcast on the joke news from Servision (SEV) HERE
2166 days ago
Serial misleader and worthless bag of AIM listed shite Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO) today announced that it has secured death spiral financing for £13-26 million from the lowest of the low DS funders, Bracknor. That is bad enough and will see the shares forward sold to buggery, as I will outline in a separate piece. What is worse is that it exposes Advanced for again misleading investors.

Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO) has finally fessed up to the truth of its bust up with Sinophi and is paying the Chinese $250,000 to settle - even last week house broker Beaufort was, with an Advanced steer, suggesting the Chinese would be paying Oncotherapy several million quid. Lets remind ourselves of a timetable of lies, deception and non disclosure.
2192 days ago
This is becoming something of a ritual. Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO) is tardy in releasing very bad news but eventually fesses up. But it misleads investors. Its (now very clearly former) partner Sinophi then, effectively, accuses it of lying. Oh dear, for the second time Sinophi has stated that (almost insolvent) Advanced is telling porkies.

If I sound more like my father that is a good thing for he is honest and precise in his use of language, although he would not use some of the "french phrases" which occur in this podcast. I discuss the use of language and how wording has an exact meaning - this is in relation to Coral Products (CRU) which needs to clarify something. I do not think it is a fraud and it can easily blame its useless Nomad Cairn. After what it has signed off for Cloudtag (CTAG) few will fail to accept such an excuse. I then move onto deliberate lying by AIM Companies which is actually quite rare. Gross over-promotion is quite common. I explain the difference. Cloudtag and Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO) are mentioned in detail in this section. In discussing what is a fact I refer to my article of yesterday on Holocaust Memorial Day which is HERE

I had a couple of contacts attending Thursday's attempted rampfest by floundering Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO) hosted (for a fee) by the sleazy IR promoters at Proactive Investors. I am grateful to one financial analyst - who is short of the stock - for his notes.

You think that following director share buys is smart? Not always. I start with Coral Products where old Joe Grimond really is spoofing us all with a recycling of a dividend that really should not be paid. Coral also highlights those scallywags at Cairn signing off on another RNS lie just like they do for the fraud Cloudtag (CTAG). Then I look at Quindell (QPP) in that vein and at Avanti Communications (AVN) commenting on its refinancing completed today. Then it is onto the hot gossip of the cash crisis at Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO) where I have another story breaking this weekend. Finally I touch on the troubles at Guscio (GUSC)

Apparently some folks think that Cloudtag (CTAG) is just a bad company not a fraud. I explain to such folks the difference between a fact and an opinion (Latin scholars are aware of this already) and why exactly that makes this company a 100% fraud. Its shares are now just 4.75p to sell but the target remains 0p as it is a fraud. Then it is on to the importance of NEDS and what they are there for ref Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO). Then I move to Ashley House (ASH) and a bit of macroeconomics, to Grand Group (GIPO) and onto Galantas Gold (GAL)

Criminal Aidan Earley says thatmy work destroys great British Companies. That is what Rob Terry used to say too. What is the difference between those two fraudsters? About £50 million and so far only one has served time. I discuss Winnileaks triumphs today on Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO) and Strat Aero (AERO) and why they vindicated my work so much. Then I look at BT (BT.A), Rosslyn Data (RDT), Cloudtag (CTAG), Sunrise Resources (SRES) and LGO Energy (LGO).

Yesterday I goaded AIM weasels Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO) to come clean on the status of its relationship with Chinese distributor Sinophi, HERE. It seems the world moves quickly because Advanced has today announced that Sinophi has, as of yesterday, "terminated" its orders and at a stroke the order book goes from $150 million to nil. But this smells all wrong and at the same time means that Advanced may well go bust within five weeks. Let me explain.

Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO) said in September that it would secure additional non dilutive funding by the year end. Today it is clarified where it stands but has neglected to point out how perilous its financial position is. Net current assets will be negative within five weeks which begs a real question regarding whether this company is solvent

Weekend press reports (not in the UK natch as the British press is ignoring this £2 billion City scandal for reasons one can only imagine) suggest that the FBI is now investigating. Already in France there have been arrests including that of the CEO of Areva - Atomic Anne - which bought AIM & TSX listed Uramin for £2 billion and had written all of its assets off as worthless within three years. There is also a major new investigative book out on the scandal due out on Thursday. I am sure my good friend Jim Mellon will be ordering an advance copy. Elsewhere I look at Vislink (VLK), at the train wreck waiting to happen at Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO), at Fitbug (FITB) and Cloudtag (CTAG) and then finally at SalvarX (SALV) - placing ahoy on this related party express train to planet hype.

AIM (very) bad boy Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO) did its best to ramp its shares following the shock loss of its entire order book back in November. Or was it October? Glitzy promo videos and spoofing share purchases by NEDs phased out to have maximum effect on fooling the gullible managed to get the shares back to c90p. But now folks are looking behind the smokescreen of bullshit and the shares are tumbling again, to 73.5p. Since this company has committed securities fraud my target remains 0p. The questions are mounting fast.

I start with thanks for all the offers of support in dealing with the criminal poltroon Aidan Earley of Worthington (WRN) - now in liquidation - infamy. I then look at Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO) and the questions it is NOT answering. Then I touch on Audioboom (BOOM) before going onto Parallel Media (PAA) before ending up with the basket case that is Inspirit Energy(INSP), its bleak future and its links to the Teathers Financial (TEA) scandal. Finally I brace myself for a night of woe tomorrow.

It is now 11 days since I published details of leaked emails which showed that AIM scumbag Advanced Oncotherapy had withheld awful trading news from investors as the company launched an open offer. That is clearly securities fraud. Almost as bad, the emails showed that the timelines the company had held out to both customers in China and investors in London for product delivery were just fantasy. And that is why customers walked. Heads should have rolled. Hapless Nomad Stockdale should have forced a statement. And having told its house broker (Beaufort) that a much needed refinancing would happen by the year end, we need an update on that too. Instead...

In today's bearcast I look at the A to E of AIM fraud. It covers Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO), Boxhill (BOX, Cloudtag (CTAG), Daniel Stewart (DAN) and Eden Research (EDEN). Can you remember which two of those have sent me a fascist lawyer's letter?

As joint house broker to the exponent of Securities fraud that is Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO), Beaufort has to sound bullish and has thus reiterated its speculative buy stance today. But read the note carefully. Beaufort is frit. I have highlighted key phrases that have not appeared before for you. Key phrases which show goalposts being moved and a broker that is sick of being made to look foolish.

My day at the olive harvest was tiring and curtailed only slightly by Vreki - details HERE. But that explains the late bearcast on a day of stockmarket insanity. I discuss Santa rallies and some true indicators of the lunacy that abounds.

Yesterday I published extracts from leaked emails that show that Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO ) kept very bad news regarding China contracts from investors as it launched and conducted an open offer. That is monumentally serious. In the US folks would already be doing a perp walk fort that but even our useless regulators will do something here. In normal circumstances the company would issue a response via RNS but here we are a day and a half later and even though the shares slumped yesterday and are sliding again today we hear only a deafening silence.

I am utterly shattered after day three of the olive harvest - a photo article is HERE. Please note Cloudtag (CTAG) morons I can't respond to your inane tweets at once every day. Cloudtag shares have raced ahead today. I explain why and why it won't last. As with all frauds the target price is 0p. Talking of which I also discuss Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO) which seems unwilling to comment on today's bombshell revalations and African Potash (TOAST). I also look at Mirada (MIRA), Interquest (ITQ) and Aeorema Communications (AEO)

AIM promote Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO) and Sinophi have already publicly disagreed as to whether the $120 million order by the Chinese has been "terminated" or not and and on when it was "terminated". Advanced announced the bad news on November 24 suggesting no termination, Sinophi used the T word and said it told Advanced in "early November". A source out East has ensured that I have now obtained access to confidential emails from Sinophi to Advanced which show that Advanced was aware of problems far earlier and at a time when it was soliciting funds from investors. It did not tell those investors. Heads must roll.

At about 2.30 this afternoon George the Albanian wandered over carrying the electric olive harvesting rod which I think is called a twerker. Battery kaput he said and looked unhappy. I endeavoured to look sad too but internally I was delighted because surely this meant that we could knock off early. Bar a 40 minute break to upload my Advanced Oncotherapy bombshell article and 20 minutes at lunchtime when I devoured a hunk of bread dripping in olive oil, a small piece of feta and a tomato all provided by George, I had been working hard since just after eight. And I was aching all over.
Sadly my inner joy was short-lived.

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)

She was horrified. I am not sure she agreed with my line that the mainstream press were part of the problem not the solution but she agreed that AIM had its issues. On the bearcast today I look at Red Leopard (RLH), Formation Group (FRM), Mobile Streams (MOS) and its charming CEO - Andalas (ADL) - whose CEO is a tosser - Strat Aero (AERO), Finnaust (FAM), Inspirit (INSP), Plus 500 (PLUS), Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO)), TrakM8 (TRAK) and Cloudtag (CTAG) plus one way of looking at it which sees 300 companies on AIM as a sort of fraud.

In the face of relentless pressure from this website, embattled Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO) yesterday put out a statement attempting to draw a line in the sand over its falling out with Sinophi, whom it had claimed was set to buy $120 million of machines from it. It has failed. the statement begs even more questions and the shares remain utterly uninvestable.

Then it is onto Cloudtag (CTAG) and a detailed look at the numbers for Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO) in terms of when it will run out cash, then onto Boxhill (BOX) and more questions for sleazy Lord Razzall.

I have spent the morning reading a few Bulletin Boards. I feel dirty in admitting to doing this as it is something I do very rarely and only when no-one is watching. Specifically I looked at threads on Cloudtag (CTAG), Strat Aero (AERO) and Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO) for instructive lessons in both human behaviour and also the nature of all the best frauds.

Yesterday shares in Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO) plunged after it fessed up that a critical deal worth up to $120 million with a Chinese entity had encountered problems. Those who backed a big fundraise just weeks ago are already 26% down. But the incident begs massive questions about the timeline of disclosure and RNS statements that appear to be utterly untrue. I have written to the FCA & AIM Regulation, as this appears to be market abuse, outlining my very specific concerns and demanding an urgent enquiry and, if appropriate, that sanction be taken against those responsible. The letter is below:

How many commercial orders does Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO) have for its Proton beam machines? I put it to you that the answer is zero but that it has always been zero. This company appears to have over-egged the pudding on a serial basis, allowing it to raise vast sums. The FCA should be now launching an urgent investigation into this matter demanding to see original "commercial sales" paperwork in order to see if Advanced has been as transparent as the rules dictate.

There is no explanation at all given for today's resignation, with immediate effect, of Lord David Evans from the board of Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO). If it had been planned, as a result of illness or some other matter, it would have been announced with other board changes on October 10 and 27. Make no mistake: the reason that Evans has "resigned" is my scoop of 6 days ago regarding his share dealings - Congratulations you Blairite low life you have met The Sheriff of AIM.

Earlier today I pointed out how Lord David Evans, the senior NED at Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO) sold his entire holding of shares during a closed period and just ahead of a major placing. He appears only to have told the company this week, although the share sales took place between 19 August 2016 and 16 September 2016. This is a massive breach of AIM Rule 21. I have written to Marcus Stuttard, the head of the Oxymorons at AIM Regulation.

On 30 September 2016 Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO) announced not only its interim results but also a large placing at 100p. In the run-up to a placing and in the eight week closed period ahead of numbers surely no director could dump his entire holding? Surely not? Think again.

As indicated at the time of its bailout £10 million placing on September 30th, Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO) has now announced that it is to raise up to £4.8 million via an open offer at 100p.

This little turd of little brain turned out to have his facts wrong and so I am now officially on the warpath and, hence, go through today's morning note from Belfort and dissect its utterly 100% shite research on Strat Aero (AERO), Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO) and Servision (SEV). I also look at Audioboom (BOOM) and Kodal Minerals (KOD).

Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO) announced its interim results on 22nd September 2015 and so you would expect that it will be publishing numbers for 2016 within the next week or so. The main question is whether it will be accompanied by a desperately needed placing of at last £35 million? But as we await that I wonder if the company would care to update us all on the true state of its UK sales pipeline. Telling the truth is not too much to ask is it?

On 25 March 2015 Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO) announced what it claimed was a major breakthrough in China, what it termed the "first major sale of a LIGHT system" in China. Well that was the headline. The customer was a firm called Sinophi. The shares zoomed on this $40 million order. Jolly good news. 37 days later the company raised £20 million in a placing at 8p. But did anyone care to look underneath the PR spin? No. Lets start with Sinophi Healthcare Limited.

Beaufort Securities is joint broker to grossly over-ramped Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO). That means a fat retainer and also a good slug of the commission earned for the regular placings this company needs to keep paying its bloated boardroom payroll and other costs. The commission on the May 2015 fundraise at 8p would have been £1 million. Coke & hookers all round! Except for the shareholders, that is, as the share price is now 5.25p and its going to fall further as the next placing is imminent. So how do you ramp a stock ahead of a placing?

One is not allowed to be beastly to companies that claim to be tackling cancer since we are all terrified of the big C. In fact cancer overwhelmingly affects old folks and so if ALL cancer was eliminated tomorrow,global life expectancy would increase by just 4 years. If we really want to change the world we'd be tacking the reason why younger folk die in poor countries rather than why older folk shuffle off this mortal coil a few years early in the West. But, heck, who cares about the darkies, let's look after folks closer to home. We are still all scared witless by the big C and if you have cancer or are close to someone who does you have my deepest sympathy. But it is that cloak of "we are doing good" that allows some folk to, if you will excuse the pun, make a killing. I today start a new series on Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO) by looking at boardroom pay.

First up he lives in remote West Wales, drinking at the Punter’s Return, seeking out the Money Tree and looking after “my precious” – his stash of Advanced Oncotherapy share certificates. Malcolm says that he and his Mrs sometimes go to Cardiff but he cannot bare to be away from his precious for too long so rarely heads further east. But he promises that he will make the trek over to Bristol soon.

Malcolm Stacey arrived in Islington last night in his pursuit of Comrade Jeremy Corbyn’s famous Money Tree. He felt that he was close to his quest. But did he get to meet the great bearded one?
As you know Getafix Stacey is worried. His potions based on cuttings from the money tree do not seem to be working. Why are shares in Advanced Oncotherapy not at 50p despite being featured here twice a week? Why is the FTSE 100 not at 8,000 as predicted? Perhaps the Money Tree he has been using in the depths of the Welsh forest is a fake or has lost its powers. But another old fool (sorry we meant respected druid) has emerged in North London.
As he wandered up Upper Street in Islington, wading through the litter of discarded granola bar wrappings, Malcolm sensed that the London of his youth had changed. This un-nerved him slightly but he took consolation from the fact that he was just minutes away from the last rally of Comrade Corbyn’s campaign.
Gone were the ramshackle shops of old. Next to the stern sign from the local council “anyone caught smoking cigarettes will be shot with

Comrade Jeremy Corbyn is a true believer in the Money Tree. And so Malcolm Stacey has headed off to find this new mystic. The trouble is that Corbyn is elusive, rushing round the country speaking to massed crowds. Can Malcolm find him and will Corbyn reveal where he cuts twigs from his Money Tree… watch this space, Getafix is in hot pursuit.

I keep having this odd image of Malcolm Stacey. He lives among the heathen celts of Wales and is a self confessed money tree worshipper, an older man with white hair - he is Getafix, the druid from Asterix the Gaul. Getafix heads off into the woods with his sickle to hack away mistletoe to make potions. Malcolm heads off into the woods to hack away at the money tree and then brews up a potion.
He stands over his cauldron and as Delphic type vapours emerge he intones "I know, buy Advanced Oncotherapy, add more Tertiary Minerals." Sometimes it works and he enjoys a good night at the Punters Return. Other times it does not work and Malcolm realises he took cuttings from the wrong tree. Getafix mutters to himself "but the Money Tree realy does exist" and trudges back into the woods with his sickle to continue his quest. I digress.
