Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Sorry Matthew I let you down

Listener Matthew W writes to say how much he enjoys bearcast but has requested a bit more swearing as it entertains him while walking his dog. I made a mental note to swear a bit about the fecking purple windows or Amazon and the melted Easter Egg but I clean forgot. Sorry Matthew. Instead I discuss: Kefi (KEFI), AEX Gold (AEXG), Remote Monitored Systems (RMS), UK Oil & Gas (UKOG) and Sound Energy (SOU).

Photo Article - the melted Chocolate Easter Egg from Amazon, rotten customer service

Joshua’s dinosaur Easter Egg arrived c/o Amazon the Wednesday before Easter and within 48 hours of order. But the one for the Mrs arrived late in the afternoon of Easter Sunday. I opened the box when I returned home from Woodlarks training walk number 3, 16 miles of pain, and I was already in a foul mood thanks to the purple window when I discovered an egg that had more than half melted, as you can see below.  It was too late to find a replacement but the Mrs was surprisingly understanding as I had prepared three amazing suppers for what was also her Birthday weekend and some spectacular brunches. So notwithstanding one stand up row with a mad lefty pal of hers who was staying for the weekend, I was in the good books of the boss and she empathised on the egg. But it got worse from there as far as Amazon is concerned.

Remote Monitored Systems – does anyone believe this Amazon joke projection? Have a look for yourself

Bulls of Remote Monitored Systems (RMS) or paid penny share hustlers, such as LSE Share Talk, are forced to make extraordinary projections about sales of Pharm2Farm face nappies in order to justify urging folks to chuck their cash down the pan by buying these shares. For the current valuation is bonkers. Just see for yourself and ask a few questions.

Welcome to 1984: Twitter again censors the conservative truth as liberal media flip flops on election rigging

You may remember that many of us expressed some concern that mail in voting in the US elections would lead to cheating. But the liberal media, led by the Washington Post, said that this was all another Trump lie. Even after the event, the Post and others ran with the line “so what if it enabled folks born in 1865 to vote in swing states? Joe Biden won anyway. Orange man. Bad.” Well now that the free and fair election is all settled, it seems as if one individual has seen the light, Jeff Bezos, owner of the Washington Post and the boss of Amazon.

Photo article: Yes there are more than two genders T-shirt says Amazon... now which sort of shirt do you want?

The photo below is I think self explanatory. You and I know that there are only two genders but those who disagree and wish to say so on a T-shirt face a bit of a quandary when selling through genderist old Amazon.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: the time of year when my hatred of Amazon mounts

I explain why I am cursing Amazon almost daily. I look at redemptions and fund managers a problem lurking under the surface but also how do private investors react to stocks going to zero or doing an IQE (IQE). I look at worrying data from China and then at Utilitywire (UTW) - another Neil Woodford car crash - and at Interserve (IRV). Ouzo for Nigel Somerville soon I sense.

LAST DAY to order free copies of Tom Winnifrith e-books

A slight tweak in the ShareProphets business model means that, as of November 1st nearly all, of the e-books that I have penned will no longer be available for free on this website - you will have to buy them on Amazon. So TODAY IS THE LAST DAY to get free copies of titles such as "The 49 Golden Rules of making Money from Shares" as well as the 49 Red Flags book and the book Ben Flip Flop Turney and I produced on how to value oil, gas and mining shares. The same applies to Zak Mir's crap e-book on charting.

Starbucks and Google – The Stench of Political Hypocrisy and Short sightedness

The political class is today delighted as Starbucks appears to be caving in and agreeing to pay more tax. No doubt Amazon and Google will follow suit. My warning here is that what is going on will cost British jobs and it stinks of high hypocrisy. And yes Margaret Hodge MP I am talking about you.

I start with Hodge who has appointed herself as witchfinder general sniffing out big American companies who pay tax rates of as little as 1% in the UK. You may remember that this was the vile woman who ran Islington Council at a time when an institutionalised paedophile ring operated in its care home system. When this started to be exposed she attacked those doing the exposing as homophobes. Her reward for allowing little kids to get buggered by council employed nonces was to be made Children’s Minister by Tony Blair. You could not make it up.
