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.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: The world's richest man vs the world's most bombastic man

I refer tio Elon Musk vs my friend Evil Knievil and so far, I am sad to report, the forces of light and truth, that is to say EK, are half a Bernie down and Tesla’s Elon is drowning in filthy lucre. I consider life in the year 2000 and today’s bull market madness. I look at Plutus Powergen (PPG), MyHealthChecked (MHC),  Grafenia (GRA), BigDish (DISH) and Eurasia Mining (EUA) asking if the regulators will ever force it to make a statement.

I have today been quite busy on family matters, see HERE, which I find fascinating. I appreciate others may not! In the podcast I look at the general market meldown in the face of the Government going economy wrecking bonkers over Covid. I look at [email protected] Capital (SYME) and Avant Garde,  Verditek (VDTK) and its idiot investors, Big Dish (DISH), Trainline (TRN), Bidstack (BIDS) FinnCap (FCAP) and a cracking trading statement but questionable morals and Iconic (ICON) and the perils of the sub Standard List.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: should I fire Peter Brailey for costing me £9,000?

I start with the latest statue pulldown, Frederick Douglas, and what it says about the insanity of 2020. I then move onto Peter Brailey and the P45, re Rock Rose Energy (RRE), [email protected] Capital (SYME), Iconic (ICON), Boohoo (BOO) and Big Dish (DISH). Tomorrow I record the first video for MineProphets, remember to book your seat HERE

Big Dish update- The Sith Lord spins for Harrow, St George & England

It was Harrow that gave Sir Winston Churchill his great powers of oratory. It was Harrow that made Lord Byron such a wonderful poet. And it is the same establishment that has allowed the Sith Lord Zak Mir to polish up the complete turd that is today’s statement from Big Dish (DISH) into something almost respectable. Given that Zak is almost completely illiterate I applaud him.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: I have sold all my Open Orphan shares now and explain why

First of all i hope you listen to the first of my now weekly long premium video podcasts which went out late last night HERE. It was a lot of work recording as I explain in this bearcast. It also gives background on my thinking on Covid-19 and that brings me to Novacyt (NCYT) which has company specific issues which will blow it up as I explain in yesterday’s show and Open Orphan (ORPH) which is very well run and a great company but where I have sold my last shares. I explain why. I also look at Asiamet (ARS), Bluebird Merchant Ventures (BMV), 4D Pharma (DDDD) and Big Dish (DISH). Finally if you have yet to donate to Rogue Bloggers for Woodlarks , the great day looms and we are now at 31% so please donate HERE

A loyal shareholder in Bluebird Merchant writes – double sack chairman Jonathan Morley-Kirk NOW!

I am a big fan of Bluebird Merchant Ventures (BMV). I expect it to secure loan funding to ensure opening of its first gold mine very soon and that folks will then realise that this is perhaps the cheapest London listed gold play. I really could see its shares trebling from the current 2.45p mid. But there is one problem, its non executive chairman Jonathan Morley-Kirk simply has to be fired, not only from Bluebird but from Big Dish Ventures (DISH) as well. I have written to senior director Aidan Bishop.

Oi Zak Mir you pretentious git what’s the real jackanory – BigDish & Coronavirus

It is not often that a press release has me reaching for a dictionary but today’s Covid 19 update from Big Dish (DISH) manages that. The company’s evil spin doctor my old pal the Sith Lord Zak Mir, tries to use a long word but I am not sure he knows what it means.

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.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: stockmarket Bloodbath

Then I look at Cineworld (CINE), Mosman Oil & Gas (MSMN), Nostra Terra Oil & Gas (NTOG), Big Dish (DISH), NMC Health (NMC), Finablr (FIN) and Metro Bank (MTRO)

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: reflecting on who Coronavirus will kill should I buy Dignity shares?

In today’s podcast I start with an apology to Mitch Tarr for perhaps marginally misquoting him. But that turns into a demand that for all sorts of reasons BigDish (DISH) fires its chairman Jonathan Morley-Kirk, who should be in prison. Then I look at Coronavirus and Dignity (DTY) following a discussion with my GP sister. Then it is onto Sirius Minerals (SXX) and finally to why Brexit “bad boy” Arron Banks is a hero both for dealing with the ghastly Carole Cadwalladr and for his actions at Iofina (IOF) which I support for reasons I explain in great detail.

Befire Versarien (VRS) owning morons get too excited I do explain what happened in full. Then it is onto Sirius Minerals (SXX) where it does seem increasingly likely that having been egged on by folks like ShareSoc, the turkeys will be voting for Christmas tomorrow. Then onto Big Dish (DISH) and comments from a chap call Mitch below my article of earlier today which show the mindset of bull market madness – I take him and those who think like him to task in a big way.

Big Dish – why will it not give revenue numbers, more meaningless metrics

I recounted, in the most recent edition of ShareProphets Radio, working for a dotcom where everyone talked about “eyeballs”, revenue well who cared about that. Big Dish (DISH) appears to live in the same sort of parallel universe. We have another trading statement where , for reasons I suspect of embarrassment, Big Dish declines to give any sales metrics.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Sam Antar will be so proud of Future PLC

I am not saying Future (FUTR) is a fraud just that the way it has responded to Matt Earl’s devestating dossier will make my pal, the King of the Fraudsters, so incredibly proud. At last someone is following his advice on how to deal with critics. I also look at Burford (BUR), Big Dish (DISH), NAHL (NAH),Nostra Terra (NTOG),  St James Place (SJP) who I suggest hires Elizabeth Holmes and Julie “lingerie on expenses” Meyer at once, Versarien (VRS) and Arden Partners (ARD), home of the China fraud specialist Mr Paul Shackleton of Naibu (NBU) infamy.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast - My Slimbiome arrives this afternoon

In today’s podcast I discuss Optibiotix (OPTI), how the critics have moved the goalposts and the ghastly Daily Mail. I also look at Big Dish (DISH) where ennui is setting in, at misleading interims from the worthless cur that is Plutus Powergen (PPG), at serial confetti issuer Zenith Energy (ZEN) and then at Eurasia Mining (EUA) where, after this post, I should say Optiva is now denying it is doing a placing. But frankly, it’s still a matter of when not if.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: The Trolling & harassment of myself and my family plumbs new depths

It seems to be followers of Versarien (VRS) and Bidstack (BIDS) leading the charge but there is another matter as well. suffice to say, this has been a bloody week and as I celebeate my birthday this weekend I wonder how many more years this can go on for. In terms of companies I discuss the hot air at Big Dish (DISH) and the red flags at, soon to leave AIM, Cloudbuy (CBUY). Followers of IQE (IQE) please take note.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: smiley face, smiley face, smiley face - the new form of RNS from Versarien

In today’s podcast I look at mini-bond scandal house Wellesley Finance and why it once again shames new Bank of England Governor Andrew “asleep at the wheel” bailey and the shitheads round at the FCA. I comment on another of its failings in light of today’s Neil Woodford News. I comment on Big Dish (DISH), have a theory about Angloa African Oil & Gas (AAOG), comment on Optibiotix (OPTI), Versarien (VRS) and ask how long its Nomad will tolerate Neill Ricketts and finally on Aston Martin Lagonda (AML).

BREAKING: Big Dish – why it needs to reissue its interim financial statements & fire chairman Jonathan Morley-Kirk

I explained in great detail in yesterday’s bearcast why Big Dish (DISH) chairman Jonathan Morley-Kirk needs to be fired or “resigned” at once over the statements made via RNS on May 30  a week ahead of a placing which, interims out yesterday, showed (again) to be a most monstrous lie. But those interims are also non IFRS compliant and must thus be reissued and for this latest bollocks up the man who is meant to bring City experience to the board, Morley-Kirk, must surely walk.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: the scalp of 1 chairman claimed today now here are TWO More that I want ASAP and why

Thanks to Winnileaks I think the position of one of the two is now utterly untanable. The other is sunk by his own RNS. In today;s podcast I look at Iconic (ICON), Anglo African Oil & Gas (AAOG), Big Dish (DISH) and Silence Therapeutics (SLN). I also look at the FCA fine handed out to Kevin Gorman and suggest that David “Sam” Hutchins formerly of Global Resources Investment Trust (GRIT) deserves the same treatment for the reasons I exposed earlier in the year.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: A lesson in maths for Roger Lawson and his crush at the Chronic Investor & Julie Meyer went missing at Legatum - why?

In today’s podcast I start with the latest joke journalism from Justin the Clown who still shows extreme cowardice and declining my challenge. I answer the question about Ms Lingerie on Expenses and the empty chair, with reference to the FCA. I discuss Big Dish (DISH) again and why NED’s do matter. I look at Mercia Asset Managenment (MERC) and the comments of Roger Lawson of ShareSoc and his fave Chronic Investor hack, explianing where they are both going so badly wrong. Finally a look ay Rosslyn Data (RDT), its profits warning, valuation and vain boasts of generating cash.

Following my intense pressure Big Dish only half apologies for May 30 lie - not enough

A stream of articles on this monstrous lie was followed by lunch with Big Dish (DISH ) founder Aidan Bishop and his PR spinner the Sith Lord Zak Mir here at the Welsh hovel. I urged the company to make a full apology and to make serious boardroom charges. Today it has gone only half way there. It is not enough to make the shares investable.

Ahead of that I discuss two things where, to me, the numbers do not add up: Cloudcall PLC (CALL) and the Labour Party manifesto. I offer another, non financial, reason NOT to vote Labour HERE

BigDish – the Lying CEO “resigned”, wholesale strategy change but it still stinks

Is the, until today, CEO of Big Dish (DISH) Sanj Naha a liar? The articles we have run on this website over the past few months show that statements were issued by RNS in his name, notably on May 30 2019, that were lies. But did he act alone or is the whole board complicit?

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: More on that Big Dish "rollout" as St James customer scams exposed

I look at Mothdercare (MTC) and Addison Lee, two firms whose time has gone. I look at attacks on fund managers who underperformed Neil Woodford and ask if those attacks are fair and at new ways St James Place (SJP) is shown to be ripping off its customers and what that means for shareholders in this unethical enterprise.

Finally it is Verseon (VERS) which has today shown itself a case study in how Neil Woodford put his interests ahead of those of his unit holders with a most disatrous call.

As such it pains me to say this but this company is now shown, with the publication of its results,  to have lied to the market on May 30th  2019 in the most serious of ways, just eight days ahead of a £2.1 million placing.  This should be jail time for someone.
