The AIM Market statistics for June 2023 have arrived. And the self described “world’s most successful growth market” has had another shocker.
2023 continues to be a poor for the AIM market and within that June was a particularly bad month with a net 8 leavers with Fox Marble appearing as both a joiner and a leaver due to a reverse takeover. For the first half of 2023 the AIM market has lot a net 24 companies dropping down to 792 companies – a 20 year low.

To be fair, I was urging folks to buy shares in Fox Marble (FOX) last week but it seems I was a bit wrong about the maths and our in-house BB savant PL was right. Does that make Fox a raging FYB buy on Tuesday? I then look at ScotGold (SGZ) and yet another scandal and finally at Flip Flop’s Kavango Resources (KAV) as per my earlier piece HERE. Tomorrow I really am on a training walk so please, as I aim to do 15 miles, consider a donation to Rogue Bloggers for Woodlarks HERE

Then it is onto woke nonsense and boardroom quotas at Colin Bird’s African Pioneer (AFP), the great news from Fox Marble (FOX) and my thoughts, such as they are on Deutsche Bank buying Numis (NUM) for £410 million. Finally, tomorrow sees me back on a training walk for Rogue Bloggers for Woodlarks. To the 95% of you yet to donate, how about you hand over a tenner ( or more) HERE.

Remember that Fox Marble (FOX) is now fully funded to pursue a legal claim against the Republic of Kosovo for – under a previous regime – allowing one of its mines to be half inched. Legal giants Dentons were already on board now it has hired top barrister Simon Nesbitt QC from the Maitland Chambers to argue its case.

And now from Wales, by just 30 yards, it is my new weekly video show. This costs 99p per episode, and you can either listen to, or watch, some sparky interviews with Chris Gilbert of Fox Marble (FOX) and Dr Doom David Scott. I discuss averaging down and after news this week Fox is a rare case where that is justified. This will – as I explain in the show – be a multibagger from here. Meanwhile Dr Doom is now a bull. we discuss sharers, bonds, real estate, bitcoin and gold in a must listen to interview. Then there are a few thoughts on companies you must NOT own, including Powerhouse Energy (PHE).You can access the show HERE

Then I look at Vin Murria’s Summerway Capital (SWC) and explain why you are not too late even at 1.65p. then a look at AFC Energy (AFC) and my new policy on dealing with abusive trolls. I discuss Fox Marble (FOX) and averaging down and then the scandal that is Remote Monitoring Systems (RMS) gets even worse. Surely the Oxymorons must investigate.

Shares in Fox Marble (FOX) fell by almost 10% to 8.25p-8.5p on the back of news that it had appointed Beaufort Securities, Belfort Secs to its legion of admirers, as the company's joint broker. The assumption is that Belfort, whose clients are mainly bucket shops, will be doing a discounted placing. that is not the case, Fox has enough cash to get it through to profitability but Belfort's reputation proceeds it. Fox has gone on the record to say there is no placing.

There are folks out there determined to suggest that something is not qu9ite right with Fox Marble (FOX). In one sense they are correct, Fox has missed a stack of targets.

They are - I believe - wrong but their war on Fox has left the shares very cheap indeed.

This is the closest I am going to get to tipping a mining stock in a hurry – Fox Marble (FOX) might own mines but it is essentially a building materials stock. This should be a boring and dull business. To date it as not been.
Fox owns quarries which are largely in Kosovo, an area once in Serbia where with the complicity of the West the ethnic Serbs were ethnically cleansed by the Albanians. The latter have no historic claim on the area (it was never part of greater Albania) but when it came to the vilification of the Serbs we in the West did not really care about our oldest allies in the region. Rant over. The new regime does appear relatively honest so when a bent local official tried to seize a Fox asset soon after the IPO he was sent to prison and the asset quickly restored. None the less being in Kosovo has not been seen as a massive plus point by AIM casino investors.

Contrary to suggestions made here and elsewhere by some of my greatest admirers, the first ShareProphets seminar was packed out with just over 50 folks gathering in Clerkenwell on Monday and – I think – having a good time. The next seminar is on Monday October 13 and you can ensure you get priority booking by registering HERE.
The doors opened for free drinks at 6 PM and the first talk was at 6.30 and was by Chris Gilbert of Fox Marble (FOX). Chris explained very clearly what Fox does in Kosovo – mining marble – claiming that there was minimal political risks and going through the maths of mining, polishing and cutting and selling the different types of marble. In a sense this is a bit of a play of global GDP growth but the critical point is that Fox has to produce the stuff, get its factory up and running asap to boost margins and deliver sales contracts.

Kosovo and Balkans region-focused marble company, Fox Marble (FOX) has updated investors attending its AGM that it continues to believe that “2014 will be a pivotal year in establishing Fox Marble in the market”, though “as a result of the unexpected weather conditions and one quarry site being extended to acquire the premium quality resource, production has been set back and thus booked revenues will be more strongly second half weighted”.

Why are you guys not tipping a raft of bombed out mining stocks? Well we are not sure that things have bottomed out quite yet. There is no rush to fill the gold portfolio on our Nifty Fifty site ( although – amazingly) we are only 1% down over a year on gold stocks. Fox Marble (FOX) is classified as a mining stock on AIM but I’d view it as a building materials sector play.
It produces marble – the price of which is far more predictable than, say, gold. It is not a cash cow yet but it will be pretty soon. It is run by a sensible and successful businessman Chris Gilbert who is modestly paid but has a big equity stake and the 2015 yield could well be close to 100%. I am not joking. The stock is a buy at an offer price of 17.5p with a two year target price of 60p.
