I wish Bruna Nikolla the very best of luck as she becomes the new CFO at Cellular Goods (CBX) just in time to have a good chat with the auditors about whether this company can be viewed as a going concern.

Cellular Goods – does it think we're mad?

As the David Beckham-backed/hyped CBD play, Cellular Goods (CBX), lurches ever closer to a deeply discounted fundraise, it is keen to ramp the shares. Does it think that we’re mad?

BREAKING: What is David Beckham hiding?

Yesterday, we learned that David Gardener had left the board of struggling Guild ESports (GILD), where David Beckham’s DB Ventures is set to earn £14 million. DB invested just £250,000 in Guild – a “mates rate” price – as it signed the £14 million deal.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: V is for Vindication (Kefi, Verditek, Shield and the list today goes on and on)

In today’s podcast I look at Optibiotix (OPTI) where I bought more shares today, Kefi Gold & Copper (Kefi), Guild ESports (GILD) asking if it and David Beckham are breaking up, Nanosynth (NNN), the shysters at Verditek (VDTK) and Shield Therapeutics (STX). It is definately ouzo, or rather elderflower champagne, for supper tonight.

David Beckham-backed pot play, Cellular Goods, launches pointless petition of the year

Nope, it doesn’t ask Cheryl Cole for a hook-up; this petition is even more pointless. Hosted on Change.Org, it was launched by cash-strapped Cellular Goods (CBX), along with seven other “leading” companies.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast - lied to by Barclays, and fleeced by EasyJet

I discuss both these corporates, and remind the 94% of you yet to support Rogue Bloggers for Woodlarks: please do so, HERE.  Then, I discuss Stuart Ashman of Skinbiotherapitics (SBTX), who has made me look like a complete git (again), as he withdraws from ShareStock. But, I will announce another BIG-name speaker tomorrow, and will replace Stuart. So, make sure you book your tickets, HERE.  Then, I look at Cellular Goods (CBX) and Guild ESports (GILD), the David Beckham dogs.

Even Neil Thapar, the evil PR genius, can't polish this turd: interims from David Beckham pot play, Cellular Goods

Ooops – it looks as though the LGBT-friendly promoter of the world’s most homophobic regimes, Mr David Beckham, may need to rescue his CBD play, Cellular Goods (CBX), as today’s interims are truly disastrous.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast - who'd have guessed that David Beckham was not a stock picker?

As you grow old, you should learn from investing. In that vein, I discuss my 1997 encounters with Adonis Pouroulis of Chariot Oil & Gas (CHAR), and why I’d not touch Chariot with a bargepole. I also discuss investing in a bear market, what we should do and the irrational decisions others will make, looking at AAA, Asimilar (ASLR) and Audioboom (BOOM). I then examine Guild ESports (GILD), and what I believe is an upcoming placing at 1p. That will also kick Cellular Goods (CBX) in the golden balls. Finally, I discuss renting out the Greek Hovel, as you can see HERE, and urge the 95% of listeners yet to donate to Rogue Bloggers for Woodlarks, to do so HERE.

BREAKING: The David Beckham backed pot play Cellular Goods buries bad news at 6.04 PM Friday night

Here in Greece, it was Good Friday but, for shareholders in Cellular Goods (CBX), it was anything but good. Having initially denied reports – on this website – that the Food Standards Agency (FSA) was banning its ingestible CBD products, evil PR genius, Neil Thapar, served up a dreadful admission to ruin folks’ weekend. That makes his rather hasty “don’t panic” RNS of 11 April, look all the more disingenuous.

So maybe Cellular Goods CBD products are banned after all – is the David Beckham pot play the most clueless company going?

This is a farce.  Losing your CEO less than a year after IPO, seeing your shares plummet, and facing insolvency by Christmas, is bad enough. But now, Cellular Goods (CBX) has got its knickers in a twist as to whether or not the Food Standards Agency is banning its products. This is sheer comedy.

Video: Corporal Jones goes into bat for David Beckham's struggling cannabis play Cellular Goods

Over the weekend I flagged up the regulatory crisis affecting the UK CBD industry. Notably Cellular Goods (CBX) ,the CBD company in which Mr Posh Spice was allowed to buy cheap pre IPO shares which, fourteen months after IPO has already lost its CEO and is now rapidly running out of cash. Today, Corporal Jones went into bat for Cellular. As ever it is unconvincing.

BREAKING: Ooops – David Beckham backed pot play Cellular Goods up shit creak without a paddle, products banned

As I noted recently, David Beckham backed pot play Cellular Goods (CBX) faces a cash crisis later this year. This bastard offspring of the Edwards/Bixby/disgraced broker Andy Frangos/ John Storey/Peter Wall gang has always been overhyped and overvalued but now it really is screwed as the Food Standards Agency has ordered that retailers remove its product from their shelves at once.

Cellular Goods – the David Beckham pot play starts to go up in smoke

On January 7 this year I warned you that Cellular Goods (CBX),was making it up as it went along to hide the failure of the launch of its CBD products. Hey ho. Today it has fessed that,as is so often the case, I was bang on the money.  And better still, 360 days after the IPO, founder and CEO Alexis Abraham is walking the plank. Things will only get worse for a company chaired by Peter Wall of Argo Blockchain (ARB) infamy.

Cellular Goods and the claimed “endorsement” from the Metro newspaper & should your Mrs rub your semen on her body

David Beckham backed pot play Cellular Goods (CBX) has axed its boss after serving up a horrible lack of sales warning, as I said it had to do on January 7 HERE, and I shall come to that later. But first just to point out how evil PR spinner Neil Thapar rather over-eggs the pudding when it comes to media endorsements in today’s release. In a series which also included a riveting read “Woman claims mixing semen with her moisturiser gives her glowing skin: Is there any truth in it?”  Thapar et al reckon that the Metro newspaper endorsed Cellular’s products. Well er…

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast – V is for Vindication day

As I write, four of the top 12 fallers are stocks that I have exposed as total wronguns and one of the four even coughed up that I had gpt a scoop on Friday. In today’s podcast, which should please Matthew and his dog, I cover: Omega Diagnostics (ODX) and its porkies, MGC Pharmaceuticals (MXC), a Turner Pope dog still valued at £40 million even now but not worth a fraction of that,  Guild ESports (GILD) & the greed of David Beckham, Vast Resources (VAST) and the fraud Chill Brands (CHLL ) which could be going down the plughole for good within a  couple of weeks. I forgot to discuss the latest news from Zak Mir and Lift Ventures. That will have to wait for another day.

David Beckham ‘’e's ‘avin’ a larf – tragic finals from Guild Esports, cash burn central, Yellow Journalism at Daily Mail disgraced again!

Floated at 8p on the (sub) Standard list on 2 October 2020, football gaming shower Guild Esports (GILD) now sees its shares languishing at just 3p after the release of truly dreadful interims. The only shareholder laughing all the way to the bank is David “show me the money” Beckham.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Looking forward to a spectacular own goal from Team David Beckham

In today’s podcast I cover Chill Brands (CHLL) and Guild E-Sports (GILD) as both prepare to publish results.I look at lessons learned, or rather not learned by the Oxymorons at AIM Regulation, from Deepverge (DVRG) and I comment on Union Jack Oil (UJO), its disgraced boss David Bramhill and its inevitable cashburn.

EXPOSED: Cellular Goods: Rewriting history & backtracking fast amid a sound of silence on its product launch

The RNS about today’s AGM Cellular Goods (CBX),  the company that sold cheap shares to David Beckham to wallow in his *“brand glory” and ramp ahead of the IPO, said nothing other than resolutions were passed but there was a link to a shareholder Q&A and this should ring real alarm bells as the  company rewrites history. Firstly let us all rewind to December 1.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast - is this peak Beckham a market top signal?

I start with a discussion of why I have very wet feet. It was, a schoolboy error according to Joshua. Pictures explaining why can be found here. Then to some corrupt journalism in the Mail on Sunday and why it makes me more bearish on The Hut Group (THG) and a story about David Beckham cashing in which looks to me to be another top of the market signal.

Cellular Goods – the Beckham CBD skin cream play burns that cash like there’s no tomorrow

When not earning millions promoting one of the most hateful homophobic regimes on this planet or appearing with his good pal Elton at a gay Pride event,  Mr David Beckham has become a celebrated investor. There is Guild E-Sports (GILD) which will see him turn £250,000 into £15 million however badly the company does. And it is doing badly.  And then there is Cellular Goods(CBX) with the same motley crew of pre IPO investors and advisors.  It makes facecreams which must be useful if, like Becks, you have two of them. It had results today.

EXPOSE: Guild Esports– was a £5.5 million cash payment to David Beckham not properly recorded in the interim accounts?

On 30 June 2021, Guild Esports (GILD) published its interim financial statements for the six months ended 31 March 2021 which showed cash and cash equivalents of £15.86 million.  These interim financial statements were unaudited and unreviewed by their auditors.  However, they did state that they had been prepared in accordance with International Accounting Standard No 34. Hmmmm.

Shocking expose: David Beckham’s Guild Esports – when did it know that its biggest “guaranteed contract” was duff?

I say this is David Beckham’s company, just to remind you that Becks owns less than 5% having put in £250,000 at a fraction of the 8p IPO price just over a year ago. In return for promoting this company’s products Becks will trouser a guaranteed c£15 million over five years.  Today Guild (GILD) made a shocking admission but showing it does not give a FF about market rules today saw a shocking admission but not the full story.

Update: What's happening at David Beckham’s Cellular Goods? The John Story Lock-in and his financial woes as Zoetic shares now almost 50% off highs

As shares in the fraud Zoetic (ZOE) slid to a new year low today, this will have caused real pain for some of those holding shares on a CFD basis as they faced margin calls. Amazingly, more than 25% of the free float is held on margin and the largest single holder of CFDs is the proven liar John Story, with c6% of the company at risk of margin calls. We already know that Story has had to walk away from a couple of placing commitments he had made since early April due to his increasing margin pressure at Zoetic.

Has John Story broken a lock in and sold any of his Cellular Goods shares: yes or no?

This is a simple enough question for Cellular Goods (CBX) the Standard Listed pot company backed by David Beckham in a shoddy IPO on 26 February which we exposed HERE. The shares zoomed to 22p in early trades from a 5p IPO but have since rolled back to 7.6p to sell suggesting that many BB punters have been royally shafted by the inaccurate media hype but also that some pre IPO investors who paid a fraction of the IPO price may have been dumping.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: the NFT IPO - when will David Beckham get involved in this opportunistic POS?

I have a few words about the disasters that are Deliveroo (ROO) and Parsley Box (MEAL). Okay the latter is a duff IPO and a disaster in waiting. Then I move onto NFT Investments, an IPO on the way from First Sentinel and the scumbags at Novum Securities. Hold your nose and brace yourself for just how opportunistic this is. I am only half kidding about Becks.

BREAKING: David Beckham turns £250,000 into £5.7 million in a month thanks to cannabis - this is a farce!

That will pay for a few month’s losses from his wife’s fashion chain. Cellular Goods (CBX), the cannabis skincare company, albeit without any products actually for sale yet, in which Becks invested on 28 January has got off to a flying stockmarket start. The whole thing is a farce.

SHOCKER: The corrupt press (Sky News) City uber spivs, investment genius David Beckham and the pot heads & a filthy IPO

On Thursday 4th February at 7 AM a CBD company Cellular Goods announced its plans to raise £8 million on a £20 million valuation and join the (sub) Standard List, home to so many frauds and dogs. The night before, Sky News came up with the “scoop” that this news could be revealed as soon as the following morning and that David Beckham had invested and would soon sign a deal to promote the CBD skin product. Oooooooh a nice photo of Becks and blow off comment with no questions asked, this is the corrupt MSM and a PR drop all over again as I noted with the other listed company where Becks has “invested”, Guild Esports (GILD) the other day HERE.

The corruption, or is it just laziness, of the deadwood press: The Daily Mail, David Beckham & AIM listed Guild Esports

The financial sections of newspapers like to have articles about celebrities as, they can use a photo and they believe that brings traffic. But when it comes to dealing with celebs either laziness or corruption kicks in. Last week I flagged up the appallingly untrue Mail on Sunday coverage of Dragon’s Den star Sarah Willingham and her grossly overvalued (in part to the MOS ramp with its wrong numbers) and scandalously conflicted Nightcap (NGHT) POS company by Harriet Dennys. This week I turn to David Beckham who features in a Daily Mail article by Francesca Washtell which is also a disgrace.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Bear raider Andrew Left becomes a raging bull - is this a sign that we are at an insane market top

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: The worst piece of financial journalism of 2020: Donna Ferguson blows off Piers Linney in the Mail on Sunday

I discuss both the article which you can see below which really is the worst piece of financial journalism seen this year. It does bring me to why celebrity endorsed investments are so often utter stinkers, looking back at those backed by David Beckham, Fergie, Linney himself, Fergie and at the NightCap AIM IPO driven by ghastly Sarah Willingham with no conflicts of interest at all!

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: The £15m going to David Beckham from the Guild Esports IPO

I start with a few notes on  preparations for Thursday’s funeral following my piece on mad Covid rules and Dad’s ceremony HERE. Then I look at Verditek (VDTK) and Versarien (VRS) where the wheels realy are coming off. Then it is onto a defence of my friend Tim Blackstone and my analysis of Metals Exploration (MTL). Finally I look, in real detail (hence the length of this podcast), at Guild Esports (GILD) which was much hy;ped by the deadwood press at its IPO a few weeks ago partly because David Beckham was investing in it. I expose why that is so utterly misleading, Becks will make a killing from this IPO but I suggest mug punters will not. This whole thing stinks.

It is not often that I cheer the taxman but in the case of the virtue signaller Gary Lineker....

I would like to see a low tax small state Britain. Sadly that dream is not shared by any of the money tree worshipping political parties but I can still hope. Instinctively that makes me view HMRC as the pantomime villain, a body to be hissed and booed whenever it comes on stage to try and get more cash out of hard working folks. But in the case of HMRC vs Gary Lineker, the jug eared virtue signalling poseur, I will not be warning Mr Walker's Crisps that "he's behind you", I cheer on the taxman at every turn.

Tom Winnifrith Postcard: Another big loser on Independence day - the idea we care what celebs think

The celebrities lined up in their droves for Remain yet today we celebrate Independence Day in Britain. Does anyone care what David Beckham, Posh Spice, Keira ffing Knightley or Daniel Craig think about the EU? I suspect not. Indeed some celebrity interventions were clearly unhelpful but celebs like Sir Bob Geldof are so utterly convinced of their own self importance they just don't get it. I discuss this all in a bonus podcast. Of course one celeb, pictured below, swayed tens of thousands of votes.

Vicars should grow beards to appeal to Muslims says Bishop of London...I give up

And you wonder why no-one takes the Church of England seriously any more? You despair at the sad decline of Western civilization? Prepare for just another sad footnote in that decline.

Writing in The Church Times, the Right Reverend Richard Chartres, Bishop of London, suggests vicars growing beards could help the Church of England reach out to parishioners from Asia where wearing a beard could mark a man out as holy. He flagged up two priests in East London - the Rev. Adam Atkinson, Vicar of St Peter's church in Bethnal Green, and Rev. Cris Rogers of All Hallows Bow - who have grown bushy beards.

Chartres is himself a bearded fellow and if you did not think this man was already crackers he goes on to describe David Beckham
