I start with swimming pool news then look at today’s shocking Vast Resources (VAST) expose HERE. Then onto Berkeley Energia (BKY) – another reason to be glad about Brexit – then onto Cineworld (CINE) and Nightcap (NGHT). I save my football take for my own website HERE.

We have a small exposure to Uranium via Berkeley Energia (BKY) but its shares are driven by the Spanish approval process more than the uranium price. But I can’t say i’d be averse to a bull market in yellowcake.

In this podcast I look at the growing mini bond scandal as I flag up another ponzi waiting to collapse today HERE. Then I do a review of my own bull portfolio: Optibiotix (OPTI), Yourgene (YGEN), Concepta (CPT), Big Sofa (BST), Wishbone (WSBN), Kefi (KEFI), Reach4Entertainment (R4E), Falanx (FLX), Fox Marble (FOX), Berekely Energia (BKY) and Argo Blockchain (ARB). I did not mention Fox in the podcast so I'll do a seperate update later. Finally: why have you not joined the roll call of heros HERE? I say a few extra fucktards on that count.

A Buy at a 20p offer price share tip in September 2015, the gain on shares in Berkeley Energia (BKY) was banked at a 56p bid price in October 2016 on a 20% one day rise thanks to a newspaper tip. At that point we noted how we could see how, on a fundamental basis, the shares are worth 100p+ looking at the numbers thrown off by the definitive feasibility study and that we may re-enter if the shares come back allowing us to buy with a margin of error. The company has since made significant progress, but the shares not and so…

Since we own some shares in Berkeley Energia (BKY) I hope that Daniel Major is right in his thesis. In this podcast hel discusses the long-term potential of uranium and why the industry needs higher prices to fill the supply gap. The short-term issues are that 75% of the industry remains near or below the cost of production. Companies currently can’t afford to replace their resource. Cameco has taken the lead in closing down one of the best mines saying that it’s cheaper to purchase uranium from the market. Cameco’s announcement was a major event for the uranium industry.

A top broker, who shall remain nameless, has this morning had a go at AIM regulators. His ire is prompted by a meeting in a pub where Berkeley Energia (BKY) presented to retail investors. It was by all accounts packed which, since I am a loyal shareholder, pleases me. But I just do not understand what is wrong here.

I like Paul Atherley of Berkeley Energia (BKY). He is honest, likeable and capable and runs a company that looks very interesting indeed - yes we have a few shares!. That puts him in the 1% as far as AIM bosses go. And so here is a message he put out today,. If you are bored and fancy a drink next week and happen to be in the hell hole that is London...what Paul says in their message should get you excited about his company. Over to Mr Atherley...

Those who heard Paul Atherley of Berkeley Energia (BKY) on the main stage miners session at UK INvestor Show 2017 will be well versed in the uranium bull case. Paul is booked in to be back again in 2018 for a refresher but I need no convincing, we have a few of his shares just in case. Meanwhile here is another crash course on why you need uranium exposure.

In the disclosures at the back of Tuesday's detailed buy note on Berkeley Energia (BKY) by Peel Hunt which the broker wants me to take down, it states that the company is a corporate client but does NOT say that "5. Peel Hunt is Broker to this Company and therefore provides investment services to the Company" As it happens it is joint broker.. The note is HERE and as you can see with the shares at 47p Peel Hunt said that they were a buy worth 98p to 159p Three days later there is a placing of $25-30 million at 45p and guess who is building the book?

I start with a quick discussion on how we in the UK just don't get US politics and explain why Donald Trump will win - in fact he is already 8% ahead you read it HERE first! Then I explain why Peel Hunt is probably going to bully me with a lawyers letter regarding the Berkeley Energia (BKY) note HERE. My proposition for Steffi is not to make an honest woman of her...that would be going too far but concerns her worthless client Golden Saint Resources (GSR) and is prompted by her unhappiness at my earlier Bearcast Special HERE. I look at Andalas (ADL), Greka Drilling (GDL) and BlueRock Diamonds (BRD). I am now trying to renew my father's parking permit with Warwickshire County Council and have been kept hanging on a line for ages by the incompetent bastards. String em up with piano wire..

Peel Hunt, which is no joke as a broker, has initiated its coverage of Berkeley Energia (BKY) at 47p with a claim that the shares should hit 159p. It argues that "Berkeley’s development plans show a high IRR due to the low capital requirements, high margins and attractive cash generation. The location in Spain provides a strategic advantage in geopolitical security which is sought-after by off-takers. We therefore initiate coverage with a Buy rating and a 93p R-NAV,our short-term target. As the company progresses through permitting, financing and development milestones, we would expect the shares to trend towards our 159p NAV."

This is not a bad video and is quite interesting on both the market and also the very clear bull case for Berkeley. It is short as well so if you are a Berkeley Energia (BKY) fan it is well worth watching.

The only matter of note in the Berkeley Energia (BKY) annual report for the year to June 30th 2016, in terms of financials, is cash and trade receivables. They totalled $18.6 million which is a very comfortable position to be in. What is really interesting are the footnotes. We quote:

Berkeley Energia (BKY) has announced it has signed a Letter of Intent relating to the sale of the first million pounds of production from its Salamanca uranium project – with an average contemplated price of above $41 per pound comparing with the current spot price of around $25 per pound.

We tipped Berkeley Energia (BKY) at a 20p offer - the shares are now 48p-49p so I hope there are no complaints out there on this tip. What next? The most recent news of note was the Quarterlies. The actually numbers are academic but the only paragraph that matters states:
1835 days ago
We tipped Berkeley Energia (BKY) at a 20p offer - the shares are now 39p-41p after the publication of a Definitive Feasibility Study (DFS) confirming that its Salamanca project in Spain will be one of the world’s lowest cost producers capable of generating strong after tax cash flow, even during the current low point in the uranium price cycle.

We own shares in Berkeley Energia (BKY) which we think is a cracking investment whatever happens to the uranium price. But there are some folks who are mega sector bullish. Uranium is the ultimate contrarian investment and the most hated commodity because of it’s use in nuclear power, but recently environmental groups have gotten behind nuclear power. Nuclear power is 20% of US power overall. The constant power generation and the ability to store power make nuclear the backbone of the electricity grid.

I am not sure about that although I am a shareholder in, still cheap, Berkeley Energia (BKY) so hope this is the case. Anyhow, this week's podcast from Amanda Van Dyke's colleagues at Palisade Capital is with George Glasier who argues that increasing worldwide demand for uranium cannot be met by existing supply. Taking a new project into production is a tedious process meaning supply crunches are inevitable. The current price is so low that mines have been shutting down. This comes at a time when nuclear power plants are being built at incredible speed. That is the bull case...enjoy.

The second Dragon's Den session at UK Investor saw myself, Steve Moore & Gary Newman invest £1000 each. Our choice was Xtract Resources (XTR), Berkeley Energia (BKY) and BMR Mining (BMR). Watch for the claim made by Jan Nelson of Xtract.

Post the Dragon's Den sessions we found ourselves owning shares in Berkeley Energia (BKY). Steve and I reckon these shares are worth at least 45p, watch the video to see why we are so excited. Incidentally when we first tipped them at 20p, Brokerman Dan Levi said this was a rotten tip and stuck the knife in. Time for an apology Mr ex bank robber?

In that rarest of moves for an AIM-listed company, Berkeley Energia (BKY) has announced new financing from a major shareholder which includes new equity at a premium to the currently prevailing share price. Following several months of due diligence, mining-focused private equity firm Resource Capital Funds is to provide $5 million through a 0.375% net smelter royalty and a further $5 million for new shares at 32p each. The latter compares to a closing high share price since 2013 of 31.75p earlier this month and a pre placing close of 30.25p – these up from 26p at the start of the year and more than 50% on our share tip.
