Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Ouzo on Cornflakes day - only kidding

This is Nigel Somerville’s phrase. I should stress that the two don’t mix but it will be used by [email protected] Capital (SYME) owning morons as evidence that I am a drunk. Hmmmmmmmm on about 2 units a week, methinks not.  I discuss the Supply fraud and what the company’s, honourable and truthful, PR man is telling the morons. And what they should take from it. I look at the silver spike and advise you what Lucian has done in response. I look at reasons for ouzo on cornflakes: Bidstack (BIDS), Remote Monitored Systems (RMS) and Iconic (ICON). I look at a personal winner AEX Gold (AEXG ) which is very cheap and at new bad events at my baddest tip of the year Asiamet (ARS) for which I apologise.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast - I am NOT losing my faith in gold

I note the comments on gold by Lucian Miers HERE and Nigel Somerville HERE. Are the bulls in retreat? Well I am not and I explain why. Like Lucian, I am attracted to non-gold metals, even if Colin Bird is involved, but I am still c25% weighted in gold and happy to be so.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: I think Nigel Somerville will look like a bit of a schmuck

I discuss day 5 of Joshua’s Advent calendar, companies worth more than £100 million with no or sod all institutional investors and what that means: ref Sound Energy (SOU) before the collapse I oft predicted and Powerhouse Energy (PHE) where the collapse is yet to come, and finally Nigel’s 5 slam dunk sells for 2020 where I fear he will end the year looking like a schmuck.

With the exception of me, are Ariana Resources (AAU) shareholders the geekiest geeks on this planet? Answers on a postcard to Nigel Somerville please. For it seems many of them want to wear Ariana branded T-shirts and thus the company is selling a range of clothes and other accessories with all profits given to local charities.

Then I discuss what gold stocks I am buying before chatting to Steve Moore, a man with whom I have worked for all bar a few weeks of his working life. He is this year 38! Frightening. I started the show with a suggestion that we all look back to the 1970s. I end with a look at corporate lying and why it is on the rise and why no-one cares but that will change. Verditek (VDTK) is a case study here. You can access the show HERE

Video: Dollar Destruction Targeting $15,000 Gold and $750 Silver

Once again we stumble across someone who makes Nigel Somerville look sane and balanced. Trader Steve Penny claims that  “Commodities have never been so cheap relative to paper assets.” He argues that today is a generational wealth transfer opportunity. His macro thesis is that the national debt is mathematically impossible to repay. History has shown that politicians will always try to inflate away the debt.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: bloody hell even my Red Rock Resources shares are going up on gold's record breaking day

I wonder how Nigel Somerville is celebrating. I wonder how long the gold rally will continue and discuss why Red Rock Resources (RRR) could utterly roof it if it can IPO its Oz gold arm in time. I just need another 25% and I am back at break-even. On an Andrew Bell stock, how many folks can say that? Only kidding Andrew – maybe we are in the right place at the right time? In the podcast, I also look at EasyJet (EZJ), Intercontinental Airlines (IAG) and how the woes of vodka fiend Olaf may be a sign of worse to come for all. I cover [email protected] Capital (SYME) and look at results and the rum ‘n’ coke valuation of Dev Clever (DEV).

Today’s "fan mail" for Tom Winnifrith is from Tern owning Lloyd Leckerman

Hmmmmm, the auditor quit for reasons unexplained and the company hushed it up. There is a cash crisis by Christmas. The NAV is utterly questionable. The last placing was a flop. Why wouldn’t a journalist ask the odd question about Tern (TERN). And that is what myself and Nigel Somerville do as you can see HERE. But for the obsessive shareholder there can only be one reason for our articles which are ALL really writen by me.

Not i suggest on most things. the man is clearly bonkers. But on how the Government should tax companioes getting subsidies for wages he has a very valid point which I discuss. Then I look at gold and when, not if, it will soar and gow to play that. Finally i look at what companies will do in terms of dividends AFTER they have, prudently, scrapped payments citing the Coronavirus.

I ask Nigel if he still thinks Sosandar (SOS) is a buy at sub 20p as it is sub 20p. I’m not sure. I look at greed and rewarding failure at Staffline (STAF), pass on rumours about Union Jack Oil (UJO) and comment on Bluejay Mining (JAY) and Dev Clever (DEV).

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Fishing Republic talks a load of carp and a truly spivvy share tip for you all

Buried in this podcast is a quiz question - in what respect is my son Joshua ( aged 16 months) ahead of more than a third of millennials. The answer is at the end of the podcast. I deal again with a woman who thinks citing folks who send death threats to investigate journalists ( i.e. me) gives her a basis for smearing me. I refer of course to Julie Meyer, a woman branded borderline hysterical by a Judge  a few years ago.  I discuss the placing by Fishing Republic (FISH) and its accompanying statement. It is talking carp. Is that a deliberate typo? I look at Filtronic (FTC), have news on Milestone (MSG) it does not want you hearing and comment on Scancell (SCLP) in a way that may annoy its long suffering shareholder Nigel Somerville.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: all Things Fraud and Fright-er-ful

I am pretty much finished here in Greece as I explain in the podcast. And as such I start the journey home tomorrow to spend time in sun-drenched England with the Mrs, Joshua and - of course - Oakley, my utterly pampered three legged cat who is, I gather, now being given iced water to cope with the heat. In this podcast I look at Barclays (BARC), the SFO and the nature of fraud. I look at Thor Mining (THR) where events disgust me and at Ariana Resources (AAU) where I am dissapointed and less accepting than Nigel Somerville is.

Tom Winnifrith Delayed Bearcast from Saturday - I really have got to sack Nigel Somerville

For reasons explained year and all down to that snot gobbling bastard Bill Gates I have been offline for most of the weekend. So this bearcast was recorded on Saturday when, smarting from the defeat of the Old Country, I was minded to fire Nigel Somerville. Moving on from that I discuss inter alia: why London's most expensive clown at Fladgate needs to be put to the sword by ourselves and how we deal with unprincipled lawyers. I also covered a couple of other things but after a frantic 24 hours in Shipston I cannot, for the life of me remember what they were.

Cloudtag - no forced clarifying statement for 5 days, now another one is needed

In an article earlier today by Nigel Somerville, we raised the question of how and when Cloudtag (CTAG) incurred £50,000 of costs on the issue of the first part of Tranche 2 of the L1 loan notes and whether it was an additional fees levied for the restructuring the L1 Loan notes. Since this fraud and its hapless Nomad Cairn have not been forced to put out a statement clarifying prior deceptions for five whole days, I fear its time for another one. You see...

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: can someone teach Welsh git Justin the Clown how to read?

Poor old Justin the Clown is still talking cobblers about Andalas (ADL). Perhapds it is the strain of now having to live in a cardboard box but the poor fellow now seems unable to read so I put him straight. Then it is onto Halosource (HALO) where Neil Woodford is taking another big hit which reminds me that Nigel Somerville and I are doing a special session on Woodford disasters at UK Investor Show on April 1 2017. To celebrate this we have 20 complimentary investor class seats to hand out today.

We went ahead and what we served up was shocking. WH Ireland has to date insisted that the Bagots were a one off. That now appears to be demonstrable fiction.

An Open letter to Roland Fatty Cornish – quit Daniel Stewart NOW before the Rob Terry stink kills you off

The revelations today by Nigel Somerville make it clear that Rob Terry is up to his old tricks again with regard to share dealing in Daniel Stewart (DAN). Somewhere along the line he is dissembling in his regulatory filings. Nomad Roland “fatty” Cornish is already in all sorts of hot water over the scandals at Gate Ventures (HERE) and New World Oil & Gas (HERE), he now needs to save what is left of his reputation and quit acting for Daniel Cesspit now. I have written him a letter in the spirit of compassion and brotherly love urging him to do just that. It reads:

Dear Roland.

I write to you as your friend. I write to help you. There is no need to thank me for this I just wish to help you. Because I am, as you know, just such a nice guy.

I appreciate that you have had a spot of regulatory bother of late

The Camkids FRAUD – An Open Letter to Cairn Financial, Beaufort and AIM Regulation – suspend shares in Jiasen NOW!

Earlier today we demonstrated quite clearly (HERE) why Camkids (CAMK) has committed accounting fraud and why the statement of yesterday just does not add up. We have been saying that this company is a fraud for months and months and that is now clear to all. The local auditors of Camkids and the now delisted fraud Naibu acted for two other AIM stocks, one of which is Jiasen (JSI). It is also a fraud and we call for an immediate suspension of its shares as well.

We demonstrated clearly that there are numerous Red Flags for Jiasen HERE

This is a company that – like Naibu and Camkids – claimed to be drowning in cash yet mysteriously also borrows money at punitive rates. We have no faith whatsoever that accounts signed off by Crowe Horwath following the abject failures to report contingent liabilities or bank debt at Camkids and Naibu respectively. We are far from convinced that the stated cash position at either firm – as signed off by Crowe Horwarth – was in fact true.

In light of this

Roland “Fatty” Cornish – We will publish any response you may have: here is your Charge Sheet

Co-written with deputy Sheriff Nigel Somerville: Four times, or perhaps it is five, we have asked the AIM Regulation Team to investigate whether Roland “Fatty” Cornish and his firm Beaumont Cornish, is fit to continue acting as a Nominated Advisor (Nomad) in light of our revelations about events at Digital Learning Marketplace (DLM) in 2012. We now publish a full charge sheet. If Fatty wants to exercise a right to reply we will publish it. Pro tem we will pass this too onto AIM Regulation.

The Nomad system on AIM is supposed to be there to protect investors and ensure that company directors stick to the rules of the market and stay within the law. Nomads charge a fee for this, which investors pay for: it is their assets in the plc that pays the bill, after all. This set-up is the investor’s first line of defence.

The Nomad is supposed to check and verify all company statements put out by RNS before release, as well as niceties such as whether the company is in ‘close’ period when it comes to directors’ share dealing, compliance with AIM rules and so on.

And so, with reference to the scandal that was Digital Learning Marketplace plc during 2012, we bring you the role of DLM’s Nomad, Beaumont Cornish, in all of this.

1)      RNSs of 29 Feb 2012 and 1 Mar 2012 – does nobody own a calculator?

Angus Forrest of Tern hits back at “unwarranted abuse” from Tom W & Nigel Somerville

Angus Forrest of Tern (TERN) has asked that we publish in full a letter in which he laments the piss poor journalism of Tom Winnifrith and Nigel Somerville.  We are delighted to publish Mr. Forrest’s letter since we believe it incriminates him even more in scandal.  Our response will follow within thirty minutes. Forrest writes: 

Dear Sirs,

The Sherrif of AIM and Deputy Sheriff respond to Angus Forrest of Tern and call for the noose

We are pleased that Angus Forrest has given his side of the story with regard to what went on at DLM in 2012 - HERE. Whilst we believe his explanations fall short of satisfactory, at least he has taken the time and trouble to respond to some of the questions raised but we still call for the noose. Answering his points in turn…

Many unfounded allegations have been made against me and my colleagues concerning our time at Digital Learning Marketplace (DLM).

These allegations have been made at the Investor Show and on the Share Prophets’ website by Nigel Somerville and Tom Winnifrith

I wish to clarify to the readers of Share Prophets that at no time did Mr Somerville or Mr Winnifrith contact or meet me to corroborate any of the allegations made against me or anyone else that has been accused of “malfeasance” across some 15 separate articles. As a result I would like to take this opportunity to publicly respond to as many allegations as I can detect from the various disjointed articles published on Share Prophets.

They are not unfounded. Much of what has been said is based on announcements and documents for which Mr Forrest was himself directly responsible. We note that certain allegations including the misleading CV Mr Forrest posted on the Shareholder Circular which saw him elected to the board of Tern (TERN) are not addressed. Why not? Because no amount of sophistry can hide the fact that Mr Forrest misled.

With thanks to Spandau Ballet, I open what I hope will be my final piece on the matter of Angus Forrest, Bruce Leith and Tern (TERN) – at what point do the non-exec and advisors realize that without regime change this company is uninvestable and will thus go bust? For shareholder’s sake one hopes that point is now.

Deputy Sheriff Comrade Nigel Somerville, of the 1st Oxfordshire Peasants Army laid out the rap sheet against Forrest and Leith in full at the weekend HERE.

Over the past ten days in excruciating detail he and I have shown how at Digital Learning Marketplace (and indeed at Tern) the two men have systematically misled investors with statements that were untrue or by not revealing information germane to the investment case.

Angus Forrest & Bruce Leith of Tern and that Joke of a CVA Document – a lot more

Earlier today one of the deputy Sheriffs of AIM, Comrade Somerville, flagged up massive issues with the CVA agreed by Digital Learning Marketplace (DLM), now Alpha Returns (ARGP) under the watch of Angus Forrest and Bruce Leith, the two men now running Tern PLC (TERN), into the ground. But Deputy Somerville misses out a couple of points which just add to the scandal which, in a just world, would mean Forrest & Leith swinging on a corporate noose this week.

To read Nigel’s article which shows corporate malfeasance in going ahead with the CVA at all but also how the document just does not add up click HERE

Some might say that CVAs are complex and that Forrest & Leith could be forgiven the odd error (albeit some pretty massive ones). But that would be to ignore their track record.

Tern PLC: Angus Forrest & Bruce Leith must go NOW – An Open Letter to Non Exec & Advisor

Nigel Somerville has earlier today (HERE) published the most extraordinary evidence of corporate malfeasance at what was Digital Learning and is now Alpha Returns (ARGP). The two directors exposed by Nigel now run Tern PLC (TERN), another sub scale investment company on the AIM Cesspit. I demand that they be fired NOW!

The FCA and other watchdogs are fully aware of the evidence that Nigel has gathered and investigations are underway. The Non Exec at Tern Laurence Read is an honourable guy and he could choose to wait for the official regulators to act. However the evidence is now out there in the public domain. The Sheriff of AIM has a noose at hand and suggests that Read and Nomad John Wakefield of WH Ireland use it. Forrest and Leith must go NOW!

In that vein I have just written to John and Laurence as follows.

Dear Laurence & John.
