Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: is Deliveroo this bull market's lastminute.com?

The Deliveroo (ROO) IPO has bombed. Is this 2021’s version of lastminute.com in 2001? I ask and explain why I would not be interested. Then I look at Verditek (VDTK) and Bidstack (BIDS) and try to suggest a pricing and timing for their next bailout rescue placings. Now it is off to Wrexham tip with some old tyres because I lead that sort of exciting life.

Lying’ James Draper on cracking form as the very bad news from Bidstack buried at the bottom

How on earth is Lyin’ James Draper still in charge of Bidstack (BIDS)?  Dumping shares at almost four times the current price after lying to investors on a Justin the Clown podcast and while sitting on a lack of profits warning, issuing misleading RNS statements that had to be corrected and missing every financial target going is a piss poor CV even by the low standards of the AIM sewer. The man is a disgrace and is not fit to run a public lavatory let alone a public company. So to calendar 2020 results out today and the looming cash crisis.

ShareProphets translation service – Bidstack ramp ahead of placing

Following its shocking lack of 2020 AND 2021 profits and disappearing cash warning on February 1, Bidstack (BIDS) is close to running on vapours with net current assets set to go negative by the end of May and cash set to run out before then. Oh dear. What to do? Ramp the shares ahead of a discounted placing from the Nomad and broker which signed off on the grossly misleading pre-Christmas trading statement, Stifel.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: A former bank robber pisses on Supply & Zoetic shareholders from the moral high ground

Thank you Brokerman Dan for supportive words, you are always welcome at the Welsh Hovel and indeed my son often asks when you are coming again. But when a self confessed ex con pisses on folks, like certain shareholders in [email protected] Capital (SYME) and Zoetic (ZOE) from the moral high ground, you know such folks dwell in the moral sewers. I discuss the reaction to today’s Zoetic bombshell and what happens next. I also look at Big Dish (DISH), Agronomics (ANIC), Dev Clever (DEV), Bidstack (BIDS) and Verditek (VDTK) speculating on the bailout placing prices at 2 of those 5. Then I discuss Bacanora Lithium (BCN) where I might be tempted to have a punt.

Letter to AIM Regulation re Bidstack PLC and Stifel Europe – Possible Breach of Rule 10

On December 17 Bidstack PLC (BIDS) and its Nomad Stifel Europe, fully cogniscent of the likely outcome for calendar 2020, issued a trading statement which I believe, in light of a confessional and disastrous statement on February 1 2021 was a clear breach of AIM Rule 10. I have written to AIM Regulation demanding an urgent enquiry and that sanctions be taken if appropriate.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Ouzo on Cornflakes day - only kidding

This is Nigel Somerville’s phrase. I should stress that the two don’t mix but it will be used by [email protected] Capital (SYME) owning morons as evidence that I am a drunk. Hmmmmmmmm on about 2 units a week, methinks not.  I discuss the Supply fraud and what the company’s, honourable and truthful, PR man is telling the morons. And what they should take from it. I look at the silver spike and advise you what Lucian has done in response. I look at reasons for ouzo on cornflakes: Bidstack (BIDS), Remote Monitored Systems (RMS) and Iconic (ICON). I look at a personal winner AEX Gold (AEXG ) which is very cheap and at new bad events at my baddest tip of the year Asiamet (ARS) for which I apologise.

In between I look at IQE (IQE), Bidstack (BIDS), Xtract Resources (XTR), Eurasia Mining (EUA) and Greatland Gold (GGP). But it is mainly IQE.

Bidstack – The share price tells you that Stifel has an urgently needed bailout placing underway

Bidstack (BIDS) managed to ramp its shares up to 13p the other day thanks to the follow on from a trading statement which was long on ramp but short on critical detail. That AIM Regulation allowed a company with a history of deceiving investors to issue such bollocks is another mark of infamy on its already soiled record. After the pump, you know what comes next and it looks to be underway.

Based on what I reveal today, where do you think its cash will go?  Then it is onto Verditek (VDTK), Bidstack (BIDS) and a second company run by a former Tory MP, Powerhouse Energy (PHE) where the man in charge is sleazy Tim Yeo.

Lying James Draper and Bidstack – it is what is NOT said in today’s pre-placing ramptastic trading statement

Sales are vanity. Profit is a matter of opinion. Cash is reality. But if you are trying to ramp your shares ahead of a bailout placing you do not want to talk about cash ( or rather lack of it) or even profits (or rather losses) so you jus bang on about sales. That brings us to Bidstack (BIDS).

Will Novacyt follow Bidstack or Henderson Morley?

The Annual AIM awards were a virtual event this year. So there was no need for 1200 crony capitalists from the City to fork out £150 for a ticket, pour themselves into DJs and party frocks and head off to tell each other how wonderful they all were. The crony capitalists will have to spend cash ultimately leached from mug punter investors elsewhere. What good news for coke suppliers and hookers.

Then it is onto Union Jack Oil (UJO), Reabold (RBD) and Concepta (CPT) where – do not laugh – I am really very excited.

Bidstack – do the maths as a lack of sales warning is about due!

As at June 30, thanks to a grubby fund raise organised by Nomad and broker Stifel, Bidstack (BIDS) sat on £5.9 million of cash and bet current assets were only a tad lower. But as we approach Advent and the year end that position has got much worse. When, I wonder, is the warning and official admission of that?

Letter to AIM Regulation: Versarien must clarify misleading RNS

On 17 April 2020, worthless AIM promote Bidstack (BIDS) published details of an “independent” study that it claimed validated its technology. Following intense pressure from ShareProphets, AIM regulation forced Bidstack to ‘fess on 27 April that the research was not at all independent but was paid for. In that light, I have written to the Oxymorons at AIM Regulation and to hapless and shamed Nomad SP Angel about the release issued by Versarien (VRS) yesterday.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Bidstack's countdown to next bailout placing

It is bad news for gender fluid, Bidstack (BIDS) owning, journalist-defaming moron Mike Turner - the countdown to the next bailout placing is underway. I crunch the numbers and speculate on what boss Lyin’ James Draper will do about it. After that I consider Verditek (VDTK) and its growing catalogue of lies and also warn Innovate UK that I am on its case as I have been alerted to another of its grant scandals. Finally I consider two companies that are desperate to be bid for but which, I suspect, will not be: Audioboom (BOOM) and Eurasia Mining (EUA).

Well there is an annoying ex for starters. Then the folks taking the piss on a sash window here at the Welsh Hovel. Then PL defending Katie Potts spunking £1 million of other folks cash on Bidstack (BIDS)  and why following TR1s is an error. I look at Wishbone Gold (WSBN), trying to be realistic, more cracking news from Xtract Resources (XTR) and at sording pumping and dumping at Europa Metals (EUZ). No doubt Messrs Laurence Read and Benjamin Turner will be taking me off their Christmas card lists after that. Hey ho.

Answers on a postcard please.

I discuss historic death threats I have received. Elsewhere, I have more words on Lenigas PLC and frenzied activity in gold. I look at Midatech Pharma (MTPH), Petra Diamonds (PDL) and Symphony Environmental (SYM).

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: this is the final straw Boris, you can all kick me in the nuts if I ever vote Tory again

It is we in the private sector that have suffered the massive economic pain of the Government’s blundering on Covid. It is the private sector that will eventually create the jobs and wealth to pay for it. So what is Boris doing? Landing us with a bigger bill to pay so he can reward Doctors ( the top 2% of earners), taking the fucking knee Policeman and the bedwetting stay at home teachers. Fuck you Boris, this is the final straw, you and I are done. After thar brief message from a, now, Plaid Cymru supporter, I look at healthcare bubbles, Aids and Covid, at Midatech Pharma (MTPH), Audioboom (BOOM), Conroy Gold (CGNR), IQE (IQE) and Bidstack (BIDS).

I promise a photo over the weekend of that and other horticultural endeavours. Secondly we have now raised 61% of the £48,000 we need to ensure the survival of Woodlarks. Tomorrow my daughter and I do 25-30 1,185 metre laps of the fields here. Think of the pain and please donate NOW HERE. I then discuss the odd but good US jobs data and whether it will replicate here, Revolution Bars (RBG) and Bidstack (BIDS).

Lyin' James Draper puts up not a cent as Bidstack raises bailout cash at just 4p

My next big walk is Tuesday - we are at 36% of target so please do donate HERE. Next up in hargreaves Lansdown (HL.), why not screw your customers as they seem to like it? Then onto share sales in Skinbiotherapeutics (SBTX) by Optibiotix (OPTI) and what appears to be a scandal involving broker SP Angel. I shall be going to the FCA tomorrow to ask for an enquiry. Finally is Steve O’Hara a liar like Lyin’ James Draper of Bidstack (BIDS). Drunken Sailor who is suffering a GroupThink induced lockdown dementia thinks so and also that I am a ramper and should tell folks to sell. I discuss Drunken’s concerns in light of a chat with O’Hara and an email from him which I read out.

Letter to AIM Regulation: The Time to suspend Bidstack shares is NOW pending clarification

Despite incteasingly desperate attempts to ramp its share price, AIM dog Bidstack (BIDS)  sees its stock marooned at 6p. Interestingly, the spread is wide enough to drive a bus through, indicating market makers are aware that either one last ramp but also that a deeply discounted bailout placing may be imminent. But the bare fact is that the company cannot both meet May payroll and satisfy short term liabilities. As such, its shares should surely be suspended pending clarification of its financial position. I have written to the Oxymorons at AIM Regulation today making this request.

Bidstack : Broker Stifel is ‘avin’ a Turkish with one of the crappiest notes in history

The key phrase in today’s research report on Bidstack (BIDS) from broker Stifel is “Stifel does and seeks to do business with companies covered in its research reports. As a result, investors should be aware that the firm may have a conflict of interest that could affect the objectivity of this report. Investors should consider this report as only a single factor in making their investment decision.” Put another way, Bidstack runs out of cash in a few weeks, needs to get a bailout placing away with Stifel which will earn 5% commission on that. The report is truly dire.

I start with events at Bidstack (BIDS) detailed in free to read articles HERE and HERE where one gender fluid shareholder will, I can reveal in this podcast, shortly be served by eight parties he defamed.

Good news: Watchstone PLC off the hook for the Quindell fraud, great news Rob Terry et al are not!

Companies do not commit fraud, individuals commit fraud. Almost invariably in recent years this has been forgotten. Banks break the rules almost no-one is prosecuted and the banks pay a fine which hurts shareholders a bit but is regarded by the corporate as just another cost of doing business. But why should shareholders pay when they have probably suffered a direct pocket book hit from the fraud anyway? This brings us to Watchstone (WTG), the company once known as Quindell (QPP), a £3 billion fraud which I did so much to expose, getting two lawyers letters, a dedicated put-down company blog and numerous other dirty tricks against me for my efforts. Sound familiar Bidstack (BIDS) morons?

When, I wonder did “she” last swap ideas with Lyin’ James? Then I look at the prick which will burst the Coronavirus testing bubble on AIM. If you own shares in Novacyt (NCYT), Avacta (AVCT) or any of the other Covid test plays watch out! Finally, I am in despair at smug Sam Smith of FinnCrap (FCAP), La Horlick and various other women determined to see taxpayers cash spunked by Rishi Sunak on gender quota lines in his start up bailout scheme.

Did Bidstack deceive investors – letter to AIM Regulation, statement needed

Bidstack really should be clarifying its financial position. By my calculations it can meet payroll this month but will not be able to pay its bloated wage bill at the end of May. Its financial position is certainly perilous and that means that this company, run by a proven liar, Lyin’ James Draper, needs an urgent bailout placing ASAP. That is one issue it should clarify via RNS. The second is to clarify whether a statement it issued via RNS Reach yesterday was misleading. I believe it was, as explained HERE, and have now written to the Oxymorons at AIM Regulation suggesting that they force a follow up RNS. The letter is below.

In the middle I go therough the very murky tale at AIM listed All Active Asset (AAA) which sees uber ramper Chris Akers in action and Peterhouse Corporate Finance boss Peter Greensmith make a £768,000 killing in his private vehicles while acting as broker and pulling the strings at AAA and also acting as broker to suspended AIM stock Asimilar which is involved in this strange tangle. Then it is onto Optibiotix (OPTI) and a small placing. But this is not a bailout as Cynical will no doubt claim but,possibly a gateway, to a mega re-rate as I explain.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: A share which I own is either a Covid 19 zero or a multibagger, let me explain

First an appeal on behalf of Darren, please can you assist him. Then I look at R4E (R4E), a Covid zero or a multibagger. Then compare the management at Restaurant Group (RTN) and then at Cineworld (CINE) where the greedy bastards are doing exactly what Liverpool FC did before there was a public outcry. Then a note on Bidstack (BIDS) and a look at 88 Energy (88E)

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: 5 signs that a banking crisis is on the way

Some of you fell for my April Fool - wow! thanks for the messages of congratulation! In yesterday’s bearcast I argued that banks had to abandon paying dividends pro tem. Now under pressure they have agreed to do so. I now give you five little or big case studies showing why a banking crisis is inevitable. Then I look at Nostra Terra Oil & Gas (NTOG), Bluebird Merchant Ventures (BMV), where I am a very excited and supportive shareholder but think the chairman must be fired after today’s news, Bidstack (BIDS), Plutus Powergen (PPG) and the associated POS companies and Westminster Group (WSG) where repellent slug and ex Tory MP Tony Baldry of 3DM infamy shows again why he is the unacceptable face of capitalism.

Bidstack: Covid 19 trading statement bluster less than 5 weeks from bankruptcy

The only metric you need to know about Bidstack (BIDS)  is how much cash it has left. Based on the likely run rate at the year end, on the fact that it has not laid off staff but has hired it is almost certain that by the end of April the number will be nothing at all and that, barring a bailout placing, it will be crash landing in Tits Up Alley. A trading statement today more or less confirmed that in what it did NOT say. Naturally CEO Lyin’ James Draper tries to spoof gullible investors.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: my distraction from the stockmarket crash is working out my odds of dying from coronavirus

It is a happy game which I have discussed with a couple of listeners. Anyhow, it just shows how data can be interpreted in so many ways. I am, you may be pleased, or maybe distressed, to hear taking steps tpo improve my chances. I then discuss the market crash and how it affects different classes of shares – the issue for us all is not whether our investments are cheap but will the equity in them survive? If the answer is YES then I suspect they are now cheap. If NO well then they are still expensive. I discuss Optibiotix (OPTI), Bidstack (BIDS), Versarien (VRS), Big Sofa (BST), Big Dish (DISH), Restaurant Group (RTN), Ascent Resources (AST), City Centre Pubs (CTC) and also why gold and gold shares are not soaring. Fear not, Malcolm Burne has the experience and the answer. They will.

I am indeed with my father in Shipston this morning and even he has noticed that he is not quite as rich as he was two weeks ago. Shiuld we pamic about our holdings? On balance I am not suggesting that you do but certain stocks do look very vulnerable. Surely profits warnings from Telit (TCM), IQE (IQE) and Carnival (CCL) are in the pipeline. Then there is the issue of companies such as Bidstack (BIDS) which need placings urgently. Just how possible is that going to be in the current climate. Then to Sirius (SXX). The Sunday papers seem to think that sh\areholders may well reject the Anglo bid and so lose everything. I discuss this looming calamity, who is to blame and what the impact localised and more widely will be.

Are you a Bidstack owning moron seeking the company of like minded morons?

Tired of Bulletin Boards where, just now and again, someone dares to point out inconvenient truths like the fact that CEO James Draper is a liar and the fact that the company needs a bailout placing within months?

Here is the answer, a bear free paradise for you and your fellow morons to tell lies to each other and say how wonderful the latest podcast with Justin the Clown Waite was.  Fear not, bears will not be permitted to join and spoil your paradise.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Ian Smith you are in denial and Versarien tell us about the Nike "leak"

I start the podcast with my torture in trying to transfer a pension from the Daily Mail to my SIPP. It got so surreal this week but I might be making, expensive, progress. Then I look at how we often jump to easy conclusions when a share price falls. I am guilty of one such lazy jump. I refer to Versarien (VRS) and UK Oil & Gas (UKOG) in this section. I also have questions for Versarien and its hapless Nomad Bobbie Hilliam of Quindell infamy about the recent spike in its share price. Then I look at Bidstack (BIDS) and investors in denial and finally at Ian Smith and MXC Capital (MXCP) which is leaving the AIM Casino which is NOT what it should do. Smith is in denial too.

This is a total omnishambles clusterfuck and it is hard to know where to start. So let’s just note the strange coincidence that yesterday shares in Bidstack (BIDS) were marked sharply lower and today the company has served up the most godawful of trading statements. But this is AIM, supervised by those stormtroopers of propriety, the Oxymorons at AIM Regulation with assistance from the chocolate teapots at the FCA so there cannot have been any insider dealing.  No really.

I consider the woes of Bidstack (BIDS) and a company with even less money, the curious trading statement from Zoetic (ZOE) and then do the maths, again, on UK Oil & Gas (UKOG).

While those with #TrumpDerangementSyndrome will shed tears for this Jew hating, terror loving mass murderer, I do not but discuss the impact of this latest Trump triumph on the region, on the oil price and on oil stocks. I look at Anglo African Oil & Gas (AAOG) and at Zenith Energy (ZEN) whrre I am contacted by material shareholders who want regime change something that makes Anglo’s desire to own Zenith shares even more bonkers. Finally I suggest that unless Bidstack (BIDS) clarifies three matters urgently its shares will continue to collapse.

Bidstack finally fesses to dire trading up but this shows CEO James Draper to be a crook as well as a liar, shares worthless

I ramped up the pressure at the weekend and today Bidstack (BIDS) has finally issued a dire lack of sales warning. This admission shows that share selling CEO James Draper is a crook as well as a liar and the next bad news will be a bailout placing. For the morons who own these shares (40p+ just a few month ago and now sub 9p) the pain is far from over.


You will remember that Draper told his first massive lie to investors on August 8 when saying the company would hot half calendar year sales forecasts of £1.75 million knowing full well that it would not – sales for the six months to June 30 came in at just under £27,000.

It is now more than six years since I ignored a certain amount of pressure and published the Bloody Dossier HERE. Under the Roger Lawson rules I would not have published. I am, again, vindicated.

As Bidstack shares continue to tank CEO Lyin’ James Draper takes to LinkedIn for an unofficial trading statement

Of course what Bidstack (BIDS) should be doing is issuing a trading statement via RNS. Does it still expect to have 24 games live by December 31 as forecast by Peterhouse. Or to have FY revenues of £5.75 million (having managed £26,000 in H1) or to achieve FY losses of just £500,000 (having lost £1.5 million in H1). The answer of course is No, No and No which is why the company should be issuing a formal profits warning and if Nomad Mark Brady at SPARK was not such an utter poltroon he’d be forcing the issue. Instead Lyin’ James Draper has issued a trading statement on LinkedIn. My guess is that his nose is just that bit longer as a result.

I have suggested in a number of recent bearcasts that Bidstack (BIDS) was the most over-ramped and overvalued stock on the AIM Casino and also that it would have to do a placing within six months to keep the show on the road. A City source has now provided me with more specific information, an offering is already underway but it is struggling.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: The curse of loathsome ex Tory MP Tony Baldry is striking again

In bearcast i raise unanswered questions about Westminster Group (WSG) run by smug lardarse Tony Baldry and ask how soon the next bailout placing will be and at what price. I look again at the most overvalued & over-ramped stock on AIM, Bidstack (BIDS), at BlueJay Mining (JAY) and at AO World (AO) and Purplebricks (PURP) two companies that boost profits by ripping off customers.

Tom Winnifrith Bonus Bearcast for Paul Scott - this is why moral journalists break news of placings - ref Cyan Scoop

Paul Scott is slating me for breaking news of the Cyan (CYAN) placing which the company has now confirmed in a grudging sort of manner. I examine why Paul is upset but explain why his argument is flawed and why he needs to direct his ire at the company not at me. Ever since there have been financial journalists our job has been to break stories of placings, bids and profits warnings. I explain why that is the moral thing to do and exactly why it was the moral thing to do to break the Cyan placing today. I've been breaking such stories as a financial journalist for 25 years. I am bloody good at it and so have no plans to stop. It is one of the few things I do which I can say, without doubt, is morally right. My snake encounter article, I mention in the podcast, is HERE
