Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: is the Alien Metals valuation out of this world? Sure it is bonkers but so what?

In today’s podcast I look at Alien Metals (UFO), at Novacyt (NCYT) and at Audioboom (BOOM), at spoof boardroom buying and at why broker buy notes are a sell signal. I also chuck a few Covid stats your way as we head for another national lockdown.

Audioboom: no one wants to buy it, the cashburn continues & a new investor well versed in the ways of the AIM sewer arrives

Well what is not to like? Having tried to find a buyer for this loss-making POS since February 19 the process has now been terminated and the adviser fired. But Audioboom (BOOM) would not wish you to think badly of it as a result.

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).

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).

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Now I am going to try to make you smile and laugh

I start by suggesting you read about the clownish Emma Priestley, AIM’s most incompetent boss HERE. Then I take great joy from the news that Channel 4 is having to make big cost cuts, but comment on its moral bankruptcy in taking state aid while still paying stars a packet and also what this tells us about companies such as Audioboom (BOOM). I look at the latest daft idea from my local Tory MP, Sarah Atherton, about the taxpayer funding a dying industry. I discuss a chat with Paul Jourdan of Amati, why I think house prices will crash but the bull case for shares. I look at the new dot.com bubble, the Corona bubble discussing, inter alia, Novacyt (NCYT), Tiziana (TILS) and Omega Diagnostics (ODX).

AudioBoom – as the cash runs out (again), when will the mothers accept that sales are just vanity?

Audioboom (BOOM) may have dispensed with the services of free speech denying, relative hiring, value destroyer Rob Proctor but his successor Stuart Last is equally obsessed with sales at any cost, regarding cash generation (or lack of it) as seemingly irrelevant. As it happens today’s Q1 trading statement may be the last where he boasts about growing sales…

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Any bloody fool (bar Neill Ricketts) can grow sales if he, she, they or it spunk enough on marketing

Audioboom chairman Michael Tobin talks complete & utter bollocks

I have long criticised the cash guzzling daft business that is Audioboom (BOOM) and its senior management, notably the former CEO free speech denying knobhead Rob Proctor. Now it is the chairman Michael Tobin who today talks patent bollocks. Do these folks not realise how ridiculous they look?

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: I've got more chance of getting lucky with Cheryl Cole than Bidstack has of meeting forecasts

In today’s podcast I discuss the ominous silence from Brady (BRY), dare to disagree with Chris “three brains” Bailey on SIG (SHI), look at Bidstack (BIDS) and consider the, incomplete, Q3 trading statement from Audioboom (BOOM), pondering when its next bailout placing will be.

Audioboom – the scale of the pre placing cash fudge is revealed by shocking interims

I have noted on this website several times how Audioboom (BOOM) has real form in giving a misleading indication of its cash  position and cashburn ahead of a bailout placing. I warned you that it was up to its old tricks again in the final months of 2018 and early 2019 ahead of two placings which came along as predicted. Now the scale of that naughtiness is revealed with dismal interims out today. Here is your timeline.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: the debt markets are screaming out that Thomas Cook shares are toast

Sorry for the late podcast but I have spent most of the day renovating another room in the Welsh Hovel. I may post some pictures later but it is far more entertaining than even writing about Neil Woodford’s woes or Julie Meyer’s lingerie. In today’s podcast I look at Thomas Cook (TCG), Audioboom (BOOM), Kier (KIE), Staffline (STAF), Dev Clever (DEV) and the Woodford Patient Capital Trust (WPCT), where, of course, I remain a loyal shareholder. Ho. ho. ho.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: who has been daft enough to send me a fascist lawyers letter

Someone wants to gag the free press and has sent me a fascist and ludicrous lawyers letter. But who wants to suffer the curse of the Sheriff? make your guesses in the comments section below. It is not Neil Woodford but I discuss his woes, I look at Karelian Diamonds (KDR) and offer to back those wanting to sack the board, comment again on BlueJay (JAY) and its porky pie and look at results from Audioboom (BOOM). Finally, my cats are now showing their teeth as trained vermin killers.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: The analyst who said a corporate client was "not bust yet"

I start with a tale from my early career and then cover Mosman Oil & Gas (MSMN) – the two are related – Iofina (IOF), Portmerion (PMP) and its profits warning, but is it a buy? And finally I look at Audioboom (BOOM) and worry that another placing will be needed soon. Finally, we are over £20,000 now but most bearcast readers are yet to donate to Rogue Bloggers for Woodlarks, If you have donated I thank you. If not, please go HERE TODAY

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast - these companies are just taking the piss as management troughs it

Ahead of lunch with a scouser I encounter someone just out of prison. There you go, life here in the Grim North. I urge you all to follow the lead of Saintly Tech Queen Vin Murria HERE.Greedy AIM bosses screwing shareholders infuriate me and in that vein I cover: Mirriad (MIRI), EVR Holdings (EVRH) and Argo Blockchain (ARB). I also look at FinnCrap (FCAP) where the dam is breaking, Share PLC (SHRE), Frontier Smart Technologies (FST) and Audioboom (BOOM).

Audioboom – placing flops and it still dissembles: Gotcha!

Last Thursday evening I revealed in a bit of a scoop that Audioboom (BOOM) was trying to raise £8 million at 2.5p. The next morning the company was forced into a statement and said it was trying to raise £5 million at 2.5p. That was not really true – I published the deck the wretched company had sent to potential investors showing it was trying to raise £8 million. Today it fessed up that it has raised just £2.8 million with £1.2 million of that coming from the board and the Candy Brothers chucking good money after bad. What a shower…

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Greensmith dont be such a knobhead when I scoop a placing by your POS client

This website is placing scoop central. For the avoidance of doubt we do not engage in market speculation we report fact. Peter Greensmith you know that to be the case and are being a knobhead for pretending otherwise. Yes this is a bad language special covering Audioboom (BOOM), Bidstack (BIDS) and Westminster Group (WSG). I also cover Inspirit (INSP) and FairFx (FFX) and explain what has been occupying me today: we have two new cats. Finally as I prepare for a 24 mile training walk on Saturday do the decent thing and donate to Rogue Bloggers for Woodlarks HERE

Audioboom struggling with placing, forced to scale back, dissembles in face of our scoop

Yesterday I revealed that Audioboom (BOOM) was running around trying to raise £8 million at 2.5p HERE. The Company has responded with an RNS “Statement re Online Commentary on proposed fundraising.” Oh come on CEO Rob Proctor you free speech denying knobhead, surely you can brinmg yourself to recognise which fine website scooped you and forced the statement. The statement natch dissembles as I shall demonstrate below.

BREAKING EXCLUSIVE: Project Coffee - Audioboom set to place again at 2.5p

The codename for the latest bailout funding of Audioboom (BOOM) is Project Coffee. The presentation, which I have seen, gushes about growth opportunities but that is always the way with this serial deliverer of jam tomorrow. There is no mentioning of burgeoning trade payables. That is always the way with Audioboom and its bailout placings. Anyhow, the company is, according to its jargin filled document ”now seeking to raise a ‘growth’ capital round of c£8m at c2.5p per share.”  With the stock at 2.3-25p that might be a bit of an ask. Time for an official comment on this ShareProphets scoop methinks…

Happy Birthday Dad. I hope that you enjoy your "medicinal" apple based gift. I am about ten days from moving house and have just completed a mail relocation form so I shall get my postal vote for the Euros forwarded. I dislike many of the creeps who surround Nigel Farage but his Brexit party has my vote in the bag and I explain why. I look at Management Resource Solutions (MRS) as another red flag emerges for this insolvent piece of crap. I cover Westminster Group (WSG) run by loathsome swine Tony Baldry, Audioboom (BOOM), Woodford Patient Capital Trust (WPCT) and his other dogs and Purplebricks (PURP) in a Joshua interrupted podcast.

I consider what Rob Terry is doing now as I contemplate the latest threat to Watchstone Group (WTG), Quindell (QPP) as was. I look back on a few other fraud busting successes but view them as fairly irrelevant. I am more proud of my work for Woodlarks and, in that vein, again urge you to sponsor Rogue Bloggers for Woodlarks HERE.  I consider DeepMatter (DMTR), Audioboom (BOOM), Centamin (CEY), Yourgene (YGEN), Big Sofa (BST), I3 Energy (I3E) and Kavango (KAV)

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast - Audioboom's placing tomorrow, 6 reasons why it is a bargepole stock, the corruption of the deadwood press & silly Kelly Tolhurst MP

In today's podcast I look at Audioboom (BOOM) in light of today's placing "scoop" in the M ail on Sunday and also what it says about the corruption of the deadwood press. I also comment on the virtue signalling by silly business minister Kelly Tollhurst re diversity on FTSE 100 boards. Suffice to say, she scores a gamma double minus for data analysis.

The mystery of the Audioboom Dog that barked – SMTM mothers!

Following a week of intense share price weakness, Audioboom (BOOM) has served up, what looks like, a panicked trading statement. It is long on blather but fails to mention the one thing that really matters: the looming cash crisis. This company could be out of money and insolvent by Christmas, indeed sooner, but free speech denying, family on the payroll poltroon of a CEO Rob Proctor fails to address that elephant in the room. I suppose that there is some good news.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Will Audioboom go bust by Christmas & about that Sosandar placing...

How long will the sell-off continue, what is causing it and what should you do?  I then look at Audioboom (BOOM OR BUST), Sosandar (SOS), Wey Education (WEY), Frontera (FRR) and Babcock (BAB). You can book free seats to grill Sosandar, Nigel Wray etc on December 3 HERE

Champion value destroyers Audioboom issue another dire warning dressed up in bullshit- bankruptcy looms

Oh dear, oh dear. At what point will those who have backed this crock of shit decide that it is not worth chucking any more cash down this black hole. I know that free speech denying boss Rob Proctor and his relatives on the payroll need jobs but but this company is just a disaster zone. As he wakes up for a meeting with Karma today, Proctor tries to polish the turd but today’s lack of profits/almost out of cash warning is his worst yet. And that takes some doing given his track record of abject operational failure and of consistent value destruction

I shall soon be on my first training walk in the 34 degree Greek heat. This is just a short five miler but on Friday I plan a 12 mile plus stroll of which the first five miles is solidly uphill. For that surely you can donate a tenner to the Woodlarks charity walk appeal HERE.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Sorry I made a mistake yesterday

The mistake in yesterday's podcast was on Telit (TCM). In fact it is even worse than I thought! The good news is that sponsorship of the walk I'm doing with Brokerman Dan for Woodlarks has now topped £9,000. I explain here why this walk makes the difference bewteen Woodlarks having to cut services or carry on, please do give a tenner today. This afternoon sees Joshua and I on another training walk, my second in two days. Think of my pain and COUGH UP HERE. In a long bearcast I predict that, after today's shocking news, FastJet (FJET) will be sold for £1 and explain why.

I look at Audioboom (BOOM), Frontera (FRR), Woodford Patient Capital Trust (WPCT), Prime People (PRP) and 88 Energy (88E). Tomorrow I will be bored to death by Lucian Miers, he will drone on about West Ham for 6 hours as we complete a 19 mile training walk from Bristol along the Avon to a few miles past Bath. I am building up to my 32 mile walk for Woodlarks with Brokerman Dan on 28 July. Think of my suffering tomorrow and please donate a small sum HERE.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: So just why were Bush & Morgan fired by Cabot? I think I have the answer to that $16.5m question!

I am still recovering from yesterday's 14 mile training walk for the Woodlarks 32 mile charity walk. Yesterday's trip did not go quite to plan and ended up being a tad longer than expected. I explain all HERE. If you enjoy my suffering I shall do a 20 mile walk next weekend so how about you spare a tenner and sponsor me HERE. In the podcast I ask very hard questions about the sacking of the CEO and FD at Cabot Energy (CAB), formerly Northern Petroleum. I think I know why the P45s and black bags were handed out but Cabot must come clean NOW. Same Nomad, different dog, more questions - MySquar (FRAUD). Then I look at Audioboom (BOOM) and Wishbone Gold (WSBN) where I am a long suffering shareholder. And I smile to myself as I remember watching Germany vs Argentina four years ago in Kambos HERE

Gavin Burnell of Globo infamy – what does he do at Novum and does the FCA know?

I noted yesterday that Gavin Burnell of Globo infamy was one of the team at Novum Securities which raised £4.5 million for Audioboom (BOOM) at 3p – a placing which is already well underwater. How do I know? Because his name is one of three at Novum on the RNS. But here is a funny thing: Burnell is not approved by the FCA to conduct investment business! As you can see below, it reckons he is “inactive.”. I took this up with Novum boss Hugh McAllister…

There was the radio boom of the 1920s and the dot com boom of 1999-2001 but is the blockchain bubble at 1999, 2000 or 2001? Among the companies also mentioned are On Line (ONL), Vela (VELA), Milestone Group (MSG)  and Coinsilium (COIN), where we have a small holding. Madness, my friends, is in the air.

I am sure that he will fit in brilliantly and help rack up an admin overhead which is now closer to £600,000 a month than £500,000.

Elsewhere I look at the latest utterly meaningless trading statement from Audioboom (BOOM). Why is its CEO Rob Proctor so averse not only to defending free speech but also to handing out metrics that actuially mean anything. He is another man for the job of lavatory attendant at the Athens bus station. And BTW this company is going to run out of cash AGAIN.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Wringing the Vicar's Neck, he is a mad Guardian reader

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).

It is 4 weeks to the day to UK Investor and tickets are 85% booked out so if you are not booked in book NOW! On this podcast I also look at Brave Bison (BBSN) and TrakM8 (TRAK) and how cost cutting can itself prompt a cash crisis. I look at Audioboom (BOOM) with a more generous eye. I look at Glenwick (GWIK), now booted off AIM, which stinks. And I look at the idea of investing in shite companies to make money, ref Red Leopard (RLH) and Cynical Bear. This also brings me to ECR (ECR) where we own shares and I now see arch ramper Big Gib is on board. Over to you Big Gob do not let me stop you!

I then look at Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO) and the questions it is NOT answering.

Audioboom - Horseshit Trading Update from cashburning central

Later today I shall record another most excellent Bearcast using the Audioboom (BOOM) platform which to date appears to have generated advertising revenue for me of er...nothing at all. That is somewhat below what I was led to expect but who cares, I bring you my expletive ridden thoughts for the sheer pleasure of it. Let's start early today with the tourette's: The Audioboom trading statement is just plain shite.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: 100% Shite Research from Belfort Securities on Advanced Oncotherapy, Servision and Strat Aero

I am in a bad mood because a) baby with no name is screaming a lot and I am tired and b) some little shit for brains round at Beaufort Securities was slagging me off to a client today. 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).

Audioboom - drowning in red flags - where to start: sell

I noted a week ago, here, that Audioboom (BOOM) shares were weak and that since it was running out of cash I reckoned a placing was afoot. Lo and behold there is indeed a £2.55 million placing at 2.5p today but there is also a stream of other announcements which are a red flag festival. This is a horror story.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Roland "fatty" Cornish - "oops I did it again

I start with Gulf Keystone (GKP) and a share price driven by morons. talking of morons, London's most useless Nomad, Roland "fatty" Cornish has screwed up again. This time it is Nyota Minerals (NYO) although the real issue here is when is Nyota bust. I think it might be already. I look at Avanti and ask who is smarter: Tom Dobell of M&G, a Bulletin Board Moron or an institutional investor in bonds. I look at Koovs (KOOV), Essentra (ESNT) and Audiooboom (BOOM).

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast 17 March - you just cannot be Sirius

I start with two matters from yesterday's Budget which I neglected to mention in my otherwise excellent post Budget podcast HERE. The I move not to Sirius Minerals (SXX), which I shall cover in a seperate article elsewhere following a chat with Chris Frazer which left me quite impressed, but to Sirius Petroleum (SRSP) which is a dog with fleas and whose placing today stinks. Then it is onto Wandisco (WAND), Gulf Keystone (GKP) - where are my fucking apologies from the morons? - Audioboom (BOOM), Challenger Acquisitions (CHAL) and the uber perma dog Sareum (SAR) before I engage in a lengthy discussion on Fitbug (FITB) another perma dog.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast 8 March: Solgold & Rose Petroleum - just doing the ffing maths!

It is International Women's Day and I ponder how to celebrate now that the Mrs has cooked my breakfast and been made aware that my West Ham shirt needs cleaning. Then to the markets. Solgold (SOLG ) announced its placing last night - as I flagged it would at the weekend HERE - next up is Rose Petroleum (ROSE) where I flagged up the timing of the placing it must surely announce soon 90 days ago HERE. It is just about doing the bloody maths. I have a detailed look at Audioboom (BOOM) and then have a new message for the disgraced failed CEO pig that is [email protected] My other podcast to which I refer on why the sordid deal with Turkey MUST make you vote for Brexit is HERE

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast 4 March - Arguing with a Drunken Sailor as rats jump ship from AIM

Rules are rules and whether it is soccer playing sex offenders or AIM Companies you have to stick to them. Moreover a COI is a COI even if sign off on and some may be legally kosher but are morally wrong. I refer to my rows with DS on 3Legs Resources (3LEG). I look at Monitise (MONI), rats leaving AIM, viz Edge Resources (EDG) & UMC Energy (UEP). I ask where is the fraud at African Potash (AFPO)? And then - to entertain Wildes - I look at LGO Energy (SHITE) again as well as at Iofina (IOF) - when will it fess up? I also ask a question of Audioboom (BOOM)

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast 9/11 - Looking back & forward & a rip roaring day on AIM

It is 9/11 and I look back 14 years. I also reflect on the Orwellian way we all viewed Syria earlier this week. Looking forward, we have sold 90% of the restaurant in Clerkenwell to the pizza hardman Darren Atwater. we end up slightly ahead on the deal but I have had enough of running businesses and blame my own old age and the Tories for that. This is the start of my wind-down. On AIM its a cracking day with another China fraud kill, China Chaintek (CTEK) and more fun and games at Mosman Oil & Gas (MSMN), Redhall (RHL), Monitise (MONI), Sefton Resources (SER, Cloudbuy (CBUY) and Golden Saint Resources (GSR). And I am getting into bed with Rob Proctor of Audioboom (BOOM). Not literally but...well I explain in full. in the podcast.

Tom Winnifrith BearCast 7 September - Flip Flop the "drug dealer", the bank robber and Audioboom

What a total waste of a day, dealing with Dan Levi (the bank robber, reformed) vs Ben Turney (the legal drug dealer, reformed). Dan's expose is HERE. Ben's response is HERE. What a total waste of my day, I am so tempted to just give up altogether. But isntead I outline why the prohibition never works and how I am responding to the allegations: by wasting money on bringing in a barrister to investigate them in full for a report we will publish here. Then I turm to Audioboom (BOOM) and NorthWest Investment Group (NWIG). If the world was different I'd be booking a one way ticket to Greece and throwing my laptop in the sea. Surely both Dan and Ben can go after real villains and just leave me in peace.
