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 Optibiotix (OPTI) boss Steve O’Hara and oil guru Peter Brailey. There is also me. I am a big investor in Optibiotix but explain why I am angry but not selling and challenge Peter on how to play oil plus he and I discuss the most overvalued stock on the Standard List, a total joke capitalised at almost £100 million, worth c£1 million.You can access the show HERE

My video with Optibiotix (OPTI_) boss Steve is with Darren and the show should go live tomorrow. But I pick up on one point and that is the behaviour of IIs vs PIs. Then with that also in mind I look at Savannah Resources (SAV), comment on Big Sofa (BST) and then on the fun and games at Versarien (VRS) which could well bring my 0p target a lot sooner than I had thought. We have now raised more than £15,000 ( with gift aid) as the rogue bloggers for Woodlarks. Thank you to Jocelyn and Vin for two big donations today, can you please also be generous and donate HERE

The 98% of you yet to donate to rogue bloggers for Woodlarks will not have seen the offer made by Optibiotix (OPTI) boss Steve O’Hara. You can both see his offer and make a donation as you think of the misery that looms for Andrew Bell on 29 May HERE. In the rest of the podcast I discuss being snitched on by some cottage burning freak, Ridgecrest (RDGC), Bluebird Merchant Ventures (BMV) and Alba Minerals (ALBA).

I start with a few words on the late Phil the Greek and reference an article I wrote exactly one month ago HERE on the liberal US celeb Joy Behar calling out Phil and his family as Nazis. I reflect on the weather here in Wales and how tomorrow’s 20 mile training walk for Woodlarks will be very unpleasant indeed. So please do support me with a donation HERE. Then I discuss the saintly Vin Murria and share sales at Summerway (SWC) and for the first and last time in history I am a bit uneasy about all of this. Then the debate on whether to back the Skinbiotherapeutics (SBTX) or the Optibiotix (OPTI) charger?

I start with a true story. Surely it is a cracking warning of the top of the market. Then onto the fraud [email protected] Capital (SYME) confirming my scoop. Finally a long discussion on the morality of breaking lock-ins ref Optibiotix (OPTI), Skinbiotherapeutics (SBTX) and Powerhouse Energy (PHE) run by sleazy ex Tory MP Tim Yeo.

Notwithstanding the lock in shenanigans with Optibiotix (OPTI) discussed HERE I am more bullish than ever. The results from Skinbiotherapeutics (SBTX) for the six months to 31 December 2020 came out on Monday. I apologise for the delayed update but I needed to ponder a while. What we read a few days ago was just excellent. Hence this upgrade.

Yesterday it was Skinbiotherapeutics (SBTX) which allowed Optibiotix (OPTI) to dump shares less than six months after announcing a firm lock in agreement lasting 12 months. Today it is Powerhouse Energy (PHE) showing that these announcements are utterly meaningless and investors cannot rely on them at all.

I think Optibiotix (OPTI) shares are very cheap as are those of Skinbiotherapeutics (SBTX) and am a loyal shareholder in both expecting to treble my money from here. Nor do I begrudge Optibiotix selling a few shares in Skinbiotherapeutics as it announced it had today as I imagine that will more than pay for a Nasdaq listing which may drive a re-rate. But I suggest that, in light of today’s events, a document signed by Steve O’Hara and Nomad and broker Cenkos is a worthless piece of toilet paper and both have legged over and deceived investors in Skinbiotherapeutics. Let me explain.

OptiBiotix Health (OPTI) has announced a “Commercial strategy update” which shows strong progress in its strategy to initially build sales and brand presence and then move up the value chain by selling more product than ingredients and commercialising further compounds. We’ve also had a catch up chat with CEO Steve O’Hara. This should be THE YEAR when profits come close to or exceed £1 million. Next year that will be £3-5 million. 2021 is inflexion year and the shares are a buy.

Don’t get me wrong, I like the Optibiotix (OPTI) meal substitute drinks and do actually feel better after just a few days of losing a meal a day and a week of near zero carbs and no booze at all. But a serving suggestion from one reader went down very badly. Elsewhere I look at Sabien Technology (SNT) and the fallout from l’affaire Julie Meyer, Skinbiotherapeutics (SBTX) and also at Provident Financial (PFG).

The shares are now 61.5p mid and I think thery will easily double from here within 18 months if not far sooner. But there can be no double standards here in the way that I cover companies, just becuase I own shares in them. I think the company has made a material accounting error which is also an own goal! Here’s why:

Yup, if he does an interview with me and my tough questions, shares in Optibiotix (OPTI) go down. So, going forward, it is only those paid-for interviews with folks like Proactive. “Steve, is your schlonger enormous or gigantic? Why are your shares so cheap? etc etc.” Whatever, I apologise to you all for asking the odd question. Without my malign influence, Optibiotix would clearly be in the FTSE 100. I discuss this company’s prospects and also those of Skinbiotherapeutics (SBTX) where I am also a loyal shareholder. I look at Trainline (TRN), Online Blockchain (OBC) and Vast Resources (VAST).

Then onto share sales in Skinbiotherapeutics (SBTX) by Optibiotix (OPTI) and what appears to be a scandal involving broker SP Angel. I shall be going to the FCA tomorrow to ask for an enquiry. Finally is Steve O’Hara a liar like Lyin’ James Draper of Bidstack (BIDS). Drunken Sailor who is suffering a GroupThink induced lockdown dementia thinks so and also that I am a ramper and should tell folks to sell. I discuss Drunken’s concerns in light of a chat with O’Hara and an email from him which I read out.

I start with a note on Bidstack (BIDS), which I shall be taking up with AIM Regulation over the weekend and end with Future (FUTR) which needs to issue a profits warning. In the middle I go therough the very murky tale at AIM listed All Active Asset (AAA) which sees uber ramper Chris Akers in action and Peterhouse Corporate Finance boss Peter Greensmith make a £768,000 killing in his private vehicles while acting as broker and pulling the strings at AAA and also acting as broker to suspended AIM stock Asimilar which is involved in this strange tangle. Then it is onto Optibiotix (OPTI) and a small placing. But this is not a bailout as Cynical will no doubt claim but,possibly a gateway, to a mega re-rate as I explain.

The prices of all AIM stocks are now essentially a binary bet. They are either 100% overvalued as they will go bust or, having collapsed, are fundamentally incredibly cheap as they are not going bust whatever the share price says. Optibiotix (OPTI) is very much in the latter category. I accept folks are panicking generally or they are facing margin calls elsewhere and have to sell shares to meet them. That however is not what will drive the share price in the long run…

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.

This really is today’s bearcast despite my introduction. Thanks for the kind messages about the flooding, the waters are now recedng fast. In today’s podcast I look at China and the Coronavirus and ask WHEN IQE (OQE) will warn and if that will force a discounted placing. Methinks it will. I then look at the rioles of brokers (does research mean anything)? and Nomads (rules on quitting) in general and specifically in relation to Versarien (FRAUD). Then I discussa crazed TW hater and Optibiotix (OPTI) and how ultimately all comment on a company cannot determine its real value. In that vein I also look at Novacyt (NCYT) before finally looking at the worthless joke that is Conroy Gold and Natural Resources (CGNR). And I announce a fifth rogue blogger, Praise the Lord.

Do not get me wrong. I am a big fan of Steve O’Hara. I think he is doing a cracking job at Optibiotix (OPTI) where – as a loyal and very material (for me) shareholder – I expect to see the shares more than double from 62p within the next year. However, I’d be a hypocrite if I did not hold O’Hara to the same standards as obvious scallywags like Neill Ricketts of Versarien (VRS) when it came to the disclosure of material information.

In this seventh edition of the ShareProphets Radio podcast sponsored by Turner Pope, this week, in order I discuss why Burford scrutiny is so welcome then interview Matt Earl, the Dark Destroyer, on Avanti (AVN) , Burford (BUR), IQE (IQE), First Derivatives (FDP), Versarien (VRS), Quindell (QPP)) and Kerry Group. After a few more thoughts from me on scrutiny of smaller AIM stocks I interview Steve O’Hara of Optibiotix (OPTI) and then discuss one area where I disagree with him on strategy. If you like this and can’t wait seven days for more of the same you should listen to my Bearcast every day.

Shares in Optibiotix (OPTI) have fallen by more than a quarter on the back on results for the six months to May 31 which are, let us not kid ourselves, really not very impressive indeed. The bears are cock-a-hoop but now talking errant nonsense. We bulls look a bit daft. As a shareholder I feel a bit sore but, having chatted to CEO Steve O’Hara at length, I retain a stance of strong buy. I see one director, Fred Narbel, has bought 17,000 shares at 50p and I expect more, larger scale, boardroom buying to follow. And this is why…

Apologies for the background noise in the Thomas Cook (TCG) segment, a workman at the Welsh Hovel has not quite understood how I have to pay his bloated fucking wages.

Optibiotix (OPTI) shares now trade at 72p to buy after the announcement of a new deal with a company called BioEnergiser Ltd for the online distribution of SlimBiome Medical in the UK. SlimBiome Medical is a CE-marked medical device which independent clinical studies show reduces hunger, cravings for sweet and savoury foods, and fat intake. Steve O’Hara tells me this is not because Optibiotix’s own online sales are slowing. Far from it. But this is just another channel to market…

I have known that this move was in the offing for a couple of months. Quite simply the official broker to Optibiotix (OPTI), that is to say finnCap, is useless.

Optibiotix (OPTI) has announced the launch of SlimBiome® Medical in the UK – as of 29 April. All; well and good and I remain an enthusiast for the shares – they are cheap. But there is another matter which is not so impressive in a word where transparency is now universally viewed as critical.

It is another piece in the jigsaw and it could turn out to be quite a large one.

The approval was gained by Optibiotix’s manufacturing partner, Zeon Life Sciences, for both SlimBiome and SlimBiome-containing products.

Another day, another deal. Is this No. 30 or 31, I rather lose count. But if you watched the interview with Steve O’Hara the other day, HERE, you will know that the majority of those already signed are now generating revenues and the curve in nearly all of those is sharply upwards. Optibiotix (OPTI) is profitable and hugely operationally geared.
778 days ago
It is a Proactive interview so the questions are not exactly taxing. But the ansswers given by Steve O'Hara of Optibiotix (OPTI) are illuminating. "The majority" of partners are now generating revenues. This company has signed almost 30 deals. That tells me that the massive ramp up in sales in H2 of last year will continue and indeed accelerate in H1 this year and beyond so full steam ahead. I reckon the shares are a buy at the current 84p and at up to 90p and see the shares motoring ahead to 125p+ in short order. Note what O'Hara says about the pipeline of announcements.

My attention is drawn to a press release issued by this wretched Government which should, I believe, force Optibiotix (OPTI) to make a statement and make even the most cynical of bears wake up. It reads:

These days Optibiotix (OPTI) is on the cusp of being or already profitable and as such what excites us are rapidly growing revenues and new sales and marketing agreements. We will not have to wait long at all for more news on both those fronts. But behind this great company is the IP, the science.

Thirsty Paul Scott was so flamed by some of his readers for his hatchet job on Optibiotix (OPTI) , littered, as it was, with false statements that he announced he would not be penning a column on Friday as he was, alongside thousands of school kids worried about global warming, going on strike. The difference between those withdrawing their labour on Friday is that the kids will, one day, grow up and most of the teenagers already produce work that is far less error strewn than that of the Thirsty one.

In today's bearcast I bring you a hot rumour. The King of the spiv bucket shops Jon Bellis of Novum is apparently trying to raise £4 million at 10p for Anglo African Oil & Gas (AAOG). I look at Sound Energy (SOU), Andalas (ADL), delays in selling houses and in a similar vein what IFA's who have put clients into Woodford funds do next. I also look at Gear4Music (G4M) and director share buying which is a sell signal. I make a brief comment on Optibiotix (OPTI) and almost tie it in with a mother-in-law joke but resist the temptation.

Optibiotix (OPTI) boss Steve O’Hara has dusted down his Adam Reynolds keyboard for another RNS which the market seems, unwisely to ignore. But we, the faithful shareholders, will be rewarded for our patience with something far more stirring and we shouldn’t be waiting very long at all.
885 days ago
On Tuesday we learned how Optibiotix (OPTI) had secured medical device approval for Slimbiome and a CE Mark and that it had been working on this for two and a half years. We suggested that it would thus hit the ground running and so it was perfectly plausible that it could be delivering annualised profits of £7 million from this one product within two years. On Thursday we saw evidence of how well prepared it is for a rapid rollout.

Okay, I know that an interview with Proactive Investor is not exactly taxing, the questions make those posed by the Sith Lord Zak Mir look like the Spanish Inquisition in full flow. But Optibiotix (OPTI) has more great news today and Steve O' Hara rams that home in the video below. The shares are 96p and I am certainly not selling any at anywhere near this price - they are going a lot higher.

I expliain why today's output from me is limited and then break the latest news from Julie "lingerie on expenses" Meyer MBE. Then I look at Independent Oil & Gas (IOG), Optibiotix (OPTI), Dignity (DTY) and the scam that is the funeral industry and BCA marketplace (BCA) which may have hoodwinked Andrew Monk but whose interims today are shoking. They could have been written by wretched Theresa May and are alarmingly bad. I also comment on the Project Fear Brexit uber bollocks spouted by the not fit for purpose Bank of England Governor Mark Carney yesterday.

Having top sliced our holdings in Optibiotix (OPTI) a few weeks ago I see the shares are back at 94p today despite it having served up cracking news last week. I am asked if I am panicked? Not at all. I fully expect the shares to bounce sharply on more good news. Are we buying more? No I stated clearly, I wanted to build up our cash reserves as I am worried about the market. That has not changed. Yesterday CEO Steve O'Hara did an interview with Proactive and if you are worried watch it, below, and you should be greatly reassured.

I do not apologise for a second for advising folks to top slice Optibiotix (OPTI) at 131p but today the company has served up news which shows why it was right to hang onto at least part of your holding ( and we have held onto 6/7 of ours). Today’s release is big and does not use the Adam Reynolds keyboard – there are real numbers and big numbers.

And with a very pregnant deal pipeline so a stack of RNS's on the way, we who ignored the old Bear are feeling happy.

Amazed to find that one of her share tips had actually gone up, Jo Hart of the Midas column In the mail on Sunday advised the poor saps who follow her to top slice or sell Optibiotix (OPTI) on Sunday. Just as a buy note from Ms Hart is seen by most folks as a sure sign that a PR puff campaign is underway and that you should sell at once, the Midas sell stance seems to have pushed the shares ever higher as the chart below demonstrates. Yes £1 hit again, another case of ouzo Cynical Bear needs to send me. I discussed why I’d not be selling at this price as I expect fireworks soon HERE. Meanwhile…

First of all thanks for all the kind comments on the Woodlarks walk. The final photos and my final thoughts are HERE. It is not too late to donate HERE and that is what David Lenigas should do now as he gets his twitter knickers in a twist over his pre-placing tweets on UK Oil & Gas (UKOG). He now says on twitter he was an insider -in the US that would be a perp walk admission. The shameless old ramper is now batting for Angus Energy (ANGS). Elsewhere I cover Optibiotix (OPTI) and the odd Midas call, Wolf Minerals (WLFE), N4 Pharma (N4P), Arden Partners (ARDN) and Goldplat (GDP).

Big Dave Lenigas is copied in on these tweets.

I have recorded a special Woodlarks podcast today which you can listen to HERE.

First there was his flip flop On Sosandar (SOS) when he ‘fessed that his bearishness was an error. Now Cynical Bear’s much repeated claim in his seven things that won’t happen series, that Optibiotix (OPTI) would not hit 100p is in tatters too as the shares have this morning touched that level. Time for another volte face? And more importantly…

Ok miserable bastards. I have a train walk with Joshua tonight, a very long one on Sunday (to Chew I think) and then the big 32 miler in just eight days. So donate to Woodlarks NOW! HERE. In the podcast I look at Versarien (VRS), Optibiotix (OPTI), Big Sofa (BST), Sosandar (SOS), Audioboom (BOOM), Wh Ireland (WHI), Symphony Environmental (SYM) and Feedback (FDBK)

Okay the video is from blowjob TV that is to say Proactive from yesterday and thus the interviewer makes Zak Mir look like Jeremy Paxman. But, remembering that chairman Davidson has a reputation to lose, take note of what he implies about buying even more shares and also about deals not yet announced. His quiet confidence is clear and that is why even at 86p-88p you would be certifiable if you sold any shares. We certainly will not be at anywhere near this level.

Neither myself or the audience gave Steve O'Hara of Optibiotix (OPTI) an easy ride at Monday's UK Investor event in the City. But he presented well and I note that the chairman has today announced the purchase of £150,000 of shares at 71p. Watch Steve closely and you will see why the chairman is buying and why the shares - which are our largest holding but one we have added to in the past couple of months - are so cheap.

As you can see HERE, I have spent the morning loading a white van as boxes of my stuff heads out to the Greek Hovel which might just have a roof by the weekend! Yesterday i was in Manchester and braving its slums albeit with Brokerman Dan providing security was heroic. For that, if not for the planned 32 mile walk with Dan how about you give a tenner to Woodlarks HERE. On the podcast I cover Optibiotix (OPTI), another victim of Julie "lingerie on expenses" Meyer MBE on the phone, Stobart (STOB), FairFx (FFX), Mothercare (MTC) and - with not too much sniggering - the flop at me-too Viagra play N4 Pharma (N4P)

You don't care what I say today, all you care about is the football. Indeed: come on Eng-er-land. I reflect briefly on the soccer, then cover Mrs May's Brexit sell out, why I'm not voting for the party of the useless and treacherous old hag again, and finally discuss the idea that British companies should not be bought by "dirty foreigner", ref Inmarsat (ISAT). I cover Optibiotix (OPTI) en passant and am glad that thanks to the incredible generosity of Nick Leslau, myself and Brokerman Dan have now raised £13,000 - 65% of our target - for Woodlarks ahead of the 28 July charity walk. Check Nick's donation and perhaps give a tenner yourself HERE.

Bearcasts may be sporadic over the next few days as I explain. By Wednesday I shall be mountain walking in Greece for my Woodlarks training. Think of me with the snakes and in 35 degree heat and donate HERE. Today I look at Optibiotix (OPTI), Audioboom (BOOM), Andalas (ADL), Frontera (FRR), Boxhill (BOX) and KPMG and in some detail at Jim Mellon's failing gold play Condor Gold (CNR).

I feel like shite, hence the late bearcast. I managed it! 27 miles in the heat today has taken its toll. I am in real pain in all sorts of places. Enjoy that pain TW haters, revel in it and make a donation HERE I could have walked 32 miles today but did not - that treat awaits me and Brokerman Dan on July 28. He is training hard too. Enjoy his pain and please donate HERE. In the podcast I pass on market intelligence on Optibiotix (OPTI), discuss Cynical's massive expose on Kibo (KIBO) HERE and then leap to the defence of both a PR firm and the asset stripper Jim Mellon. It must be the sun...

In this podcast I reflect on how the UK is going to the dogs commenting on South West trains and the award of the Orwell prize to a proven specialist in fake news. George will be laughing in his grave. I cover boardroom shenanigans at Telit (TCM), shameless ramping at Andalas (ADL) which is really worth 0p, Frontera (FRR), D day looms, Westminster Group (WSG) and the ambiguity of loathsome ex Tory MP Tony "Fatso" Baldry of 3DM infamy, Rossylyn Data (RDT), Dillstone (DSG), Cluff Natural Resources (CNR) and its pomopus arse of a founder and Optibiotix (OPTI). now I see that evil PR spinner and crony capitalist Reg Hoare has donated to Woodlarks in support of the my sponsored walk with Brokerman Dan. we are now just £31 short of £9,000 and 45% of our target - go on, do the decent thing and chip in HERE

In today's podcast I look at Falcon Media (FAL), Avanti Communications (AVN), Echo Energy (ECHO), Fishing Republic (FISH) - Gary Newman can you help us out here, Woodford dog Xeros (XSG) and Optibiotix (OPTI). Now the Woodlarks charity walk. We have now raised just over £4,000 (nearly £5,000) with gift aid. A big shout out to Mark McDowell who pledged £666 yesterday (clearly a reference to Brokerman Dan). But 97% of Bearcast listeners are yet to chip in, I am sure you can all spare a tenner so please donate NOW HERE. To those who have donated already, thank you.

Forgive the late bearcast. Blame it on Greek Hovel business. In today's podcast I look at Folli Follie, shares in which are slumping again as I warned you the other day HERE - tomorrow might be D (for Death) Day. I then take up Andrew Monk on AIQ (AIQ), Petra Diamonds (PDL) and the idea of consolidating brokers and Nomads via M&A. It makes no sense Andrew. Then I look at the GoTech (GOT) shambles - its now a dope play but frankly you must be a dope to own this stock. Then I cover Optibiotix (OPTI) again with a point folks like Cynical Bear have missed. Finally its i3 Energy (I3E). Thanks to those who have sponsored me as I suffer the dual agonies of walking 30 miles and having to listen to Brokerman Dan drone on all day, but 99% of bearcast listeners have not yet donated a tenner. Please do so HERE

Oh well that will keep me happy for the next few days. What fun. Before I go on, more than 1000 folks will listen to this bearcast. I know you can all afford to donate £10 to Woodlarks for my sponsored walk - please do so HERE and NOW otherwise I shall have to keep reminding you every day up until 28 July! On today's podcast I discuss Ms Lingerie on Expenses and the UK honours system, Magnolia Petroleum (MAGP), Optibiotix (OPTI), Paternoster Resources (PRS), Physiomics (PYS), Brave Bison (BBSN) and Paternoster Resources (PRS), home to Amanda Van Dyke.

I chatted to Steve before the show and at it. This is my biggest single holding, I bought more after the show and at a 71p offer shares in Optibiotix (OPTI) are IMHO still very cheap. I really do expect them to be at 120p+ during the coming months as it unveils a string of new sales agreements. Here is Steve in action...

In the main bearcast of the day I start by asking what payoff disgraced Dave Whitby got at worthless insolvent POS Andalas (ADL)? And were mugs who backed the latest placing told where much of their cash was going ( i.e. to Whitby). Feel free to contact me if you are an Andalas owning mug. The fat Lady arrives at Nighthawk (HAWK) and looks to be in the wings at Nature Group (NGR) while new problems emerge at Imaginatik (IMTK) - a former Rob Terry fave but I speculate on bigger worries that the Quindell fraudster faces - and at Management Consulting (MMC). I think the fat Lady may well also have an appointment with Widecells Group ( WDC) shortly. I comment on 4 reasons why Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO) shares may be falling and on looming results at Optibiotix (OPTI), where we own shares.

What a great day. Telit (TCM) is under investigation by the FCA and Eqtec (ETQ) has really screwed up although why can't its PRs tell the truth for once and admit that its change of strategy was because I caught them all with their pants down and exposed them? This scandal begs real questions of Nomad Northland - hey chaps have you handed back the £75,000 yet? I also look at Optibiotix (OPTI) where last week's share purchase looks all the more prescient after news today. I look at Mosman Oil & Gas (MSMN) which is a dog whatever Zac Phillips is paid to say. I comment on Quartix (QTX) - insider dealing or bad luck? I comment on cash strapped SalVarx (SALV) - time for Jim Mellon to get his wallet out again methinks. And I look at Quadrise (QFI) where a placing looks inevitable after today's debacle.

On 6th December I said that a token share purchase by Jim Mellon of shares on Condor Gold (CNR) was a spoof as it was so small for Jim. Moreover Condor was running out of cash and would do a placing within months. Mellon's PR man chewed my ear off. Well hey ho today there was a placing. A pattern of such spoofs and a subsequent placing has continued. Will I get an apology? I also look at lessons from Flybe (FLYB) and the non bid, at Fevertree (FEVR) director share sales, at UK Oil & Gas (UKOG) which is also spoofing, 13 Energy (13E) - "you say it best when you say nothing at all " - R Keating. Then I look at uber dog Golden Saint Resources (GSR) which is leaving AIM and says it wants to go to the Standard List. Lucky Standard List. I also mention our share purchase of more Optibiotix (OPTI). If you like bearcasts then remember that at UK Investor on April 21 one of many highlights will be a live bearcast with myself and Paul Scott.

There appears to be a sustained seller of Optibiotix (OPTI). I believe he is close to completing his exit but the truth is that I don't know. Short term that has depressed the shares to 55p-57p. Thanks for the opportunity pal.

You know that I view soft soap paid for interviews with folks like Proactive in a deeply negative way. But Steve O' Hara of Optibiotix (OPTI) comes, I believe, across well and explains the import of recent announcements. In this interview O Hara gives the sort of hard numbers I have used in my writings on this stock. Paul Scott shows an extremer double standard in describing this as "nudge, nudge wink, wink" - I just called it talking to a company which is what anyone sensible would do. I explain why Scott is talking cock and applying double standards HERE. As for Optibiotix, do your maths listen to the whbole interview ( the last 30 seconds are very interesting), the shares are incredibly cheap at 62p offer and will go to well over 100p this year if half of what O'Hara says in this interview comes good. BUY.

I am very excited by working through the most wonkish of data sets to show Channel 4 was serving up A grade fake news as it reported on the drought in SA last night. More on that HERE. I start with the BMR (BMR) scandal where i am an angry small shareholder. The problem is that this is not an isolated incident, I look at Telit (TCM), MySquar (MYSQ) and Sefton (SER) where crime really did pay. Then I look at an Optibiotix (OPTI) share sale and indicate at what point i will, again, be buying. I look at a share sale in BCA Marketplace (BCA) and why that is such a massive red flag compounding the thesis explained in my major report of last Autumn, The Big Short.

I start with why this bearcast is late. I got back very late from London where I was watching my daughter play Harold Wilson in Made in Dagenham and she was brilliant. So too was the musical. Well done Olaf although you are wrong about the gender pay gap! I look at the market bounce and the shit that is leading it. I look in real detail at the trading statement at Reach4Entertainment (R4E) where I am a shareholder, at Woodford dog RM2 (RM2) which is going on a one way trip to the vets in a fortnight and also at Woodford Patient Capital Trust (WPCT). Post bearcast it announced its NAV at 85.93p which means gearing must surely be through the 20% barrier. I also look at Optibiotix (OPTI) and the warrant exercise issue.
1189 days ago
Okay this is a Proactive interview where the sycophantic cocksuckers ask only soft questions. But the statements Steve O'Hara of Optibiotix (OPTI) makes on the value of deals signed ( 4 minutes in) and the pipeline explain why I am so bullish. And perhaps why the chairman has just bought £100,000 worth of shares, something announced this afternoon. At 63p offer the shares are a storming buy ahead of a stream of big contract wins which will, finally, push the stock to 100p and beyond, IMHO.

I start with a look at the portfolios of those who are crowing as they have aced it for months. I have a warning for them. Then I look at my own portfolio, at the issue of short vs longer term performance at the individual stocks at risk reward and at why I am happy. Under discussion: Mark Slater, Neil Woodford, Optibiotix (OPTI), Reach4Entertainment (R4E), Falanx (FLX), Concepta (CPT), Big Sofa (BST), Premaitha (NIPT). I failed to mention Sosandar (SOS) but I am very happy there too. My HMD podcast I refer to is HERE

I am still furious, in fact more so than ever. Bah fucking humbug. Christmas is cancelled.

I hope you enjoyed the two share tips earlier and thanks for the kind words from many of you abour our place in Greece. I start with a look at Strat Aero (AERO). I covered the dire maths earlier here but it is the sheer dishonesty of the placing that really annoys me. Then I look at more bad news for Nomates Woodford from Provident Financial (PFG) which cvould well up a zero. Then I cover UK Oil & Gas (UKOG) as its shares slide again and Arian Silver (AGQ) which is worthless. Adam Reynolds was not - as gleeful in house BB loon Wildes suggests - fired by Optibiotix (OPTI) - I explain why I remain uber bullish there. Finally today's interims from Vianet (VNET) are misleading and even after a 10% fall today the stock is a slam dunk sell.

It is hard to know what to say about the latest news from African Potash (AFPO) so I present its latest release to you in full below. Fan-bloody-blockchain-tastic. Elsewhere I comment on BCA Marketplace (BCA), Torotrak (TRK0, Optibiotix (OPTI) and Fishing Republic (FISH)

After languishing unloved for a while in the low sixties, shares in Optibiotix (OPTI) are really steaming ahead and are now 78p to buy. We hope you bought in the low sixties as we repeatedly urged.

And so the guy delivering a package for next door said "Hello Tom". He is a keen reader and owns shares in UK Oil & Gas (UKOG), ScotGold (SGZ) and Xtract Resources (XTR). He must be a big fan of Big Dave Lenigas as well. It was a good chat. In this podcast I look at how quickly sentiment can change ref Nostra Terra (NTOG) and Optibiotix (OPTI). I cover Iofina (IOF) and Strat Aero (AERO) and reflect on how the curse of the Sheriff of AIM has fallen on Dolphin Capital (DCI). It took a while!

Finally a few words about Paternoster Resources (PRS) and as a related issue New World Oil & Gas (NEW).

Moving on...I look at how events at Taihua (TAIH) and African Potash (AFPO) show what a joke regulation on AIM has become. I comment on Blenheim Natural Resources (BNR), Strat Aero (AERO), Avanti Capital (AVA) and its chairman Phil "InterX" Crawford and his other charge Lombard Risk (LRM). I look at Coral Products (CRU) where you need to dig beneath headline numbers and then I comment on Optibiotix (OPTI)

As house broker to Optibiotix (OPTI), Hybridan is paid to be a fan and on that basis you should really take its bullishness for granted. But a note published a few days ago, before today's cracking news, explains the bull case and since we own shed loads of these shares why not give this most excellent report a wider airing. If the target was 106p pre today's good news surely it would be higher now as analyst Derren Nathan ( not a total poltroon) could cut the risk weighting on one product?

Hybridan is house broker to Optibiotix (OPTI) and so although I agree with its conclusion this note is clearly biased and feel free to ignore it completely. As for Hybridan, like most brokers. its employees should be strung up with piano wire. But for what it is worth.

We own stacks of shares in Optibiotix (OPTI) so naturally we agree with Hybridan analyst Derren Nathan that the shares are cheap at 71p. Mr Nathan published a new note late last week so you can make up your own mind. We expect big news soon and sure are not selling our shares.

Broker Hybridan has not (yet) published research on Optibiotix (OPTI) following last week's City presentation. But it has sent a private email to certain clients and, put it this way, we are not going to be selling on the basis of what follows. It strikes me that we may see some very big news soon. Hybridan director of Corporate Broking William Lynne states his key takeaways:

A reader posted on our comments section: "Ive also just bought into FFWD. Tom why can't you tip this for 2016 instead of repeat tips on OPTI and NIPT?" Hmmm well I am sure that Optiobiotix shares will race ahead ( 100p + within weeks after the next deal is announced) and that Premaitha will announce new contracts and that it is passed the inflexion point of cash breakeven soon and that its shares will head to 30p+. That is why I tip them as buys. You want me to tip shares that will go up ,right? But your wish is my command and so I will also tip FastForward Innovations. But as a sell at 17p.

We own these shares so feel free to ignore what we say. But for the avoidance of doubt our next top slice order is with our broker at more than 95.4p. In fact it is at more than 100p. Hybridan is house broker to Optibiotix (OPTI) so its research cannot be regarded as impartial either. It is paid by Optibiotix. But it has just published a note with a big upgrade so here you are.

I also look at Mosman Oil & Gas (MSMN) - more shite from poltroons from the land where most folk are descended from convicts - Flying Brands (FBDU), 88 Energy (88), Kea Petroleum (TOAST), JQW (FRAUD), Northern Petroleum (NOP), Optibiotix (OPTI) and African Potash (AFPO). I also deal with some wanker on twitter who thinks I am a sexist and wants to have a fight with me and ask more questions about market abuser Chris Oil AIM IPO car crash waiting to happen, Mkango Resources

That means the regime which leaves Paul looking so trim and svelt - ie lots of alcohol - plus long lectures on margins in online retailing. If that does not turn a sober fellow like me into a drunken share blogger nothing will. Away from that I explain why I am not really a snob and then make a snobbish comment or two, then discuss CIC Gold (CICG), ECR Minerals (ECR), Falanx (FLX) and Optibiotix (OPTI) and the curse of the Sith Lord Zak Mir and Plethora (PLE) and its premature ejaculation drug. I dont understand what it is all about but invite readers to share their personal experiences so that we can get a grip on what's going on here.

On today's podcast I start with a couple of risers: Berkeley Energy (BKY) - where's my apology Brokerman Dan? And Optibiotix (OPTI) - you know I am not totally useless at long tips. Then onto the losers: Galasys (GLS), TyraTech (TYR), Northern Petroleum (NOP). Then it is Golden Saint Resources (GSR) where I also try to help out hapless compliance officer the Northern Slum refugee Richard "Gollum" Gill by explaining the rules about a financial promotion. I missed out FastJet (FJET) - down on weak passenger data, can anyone remember anyone involved in its IPO who might be a red flag? Then I turn my attention to David Lenigas, the boiler room and Inspirit (INSP).

This was not going to be my tip in the recently published book "The Magnificent 7" which you can download for free HERE. I was set to tip Optibiotix (OPTI) at c40p. Unfortunately for you (but fortunately for me since we own shares in the company) the share price has raced ahead to a 48p offer. I still think that they could head much higher and Zak Mir reckons that Optibiotix shares will be 60p by October. I think, that is what a chartist terms a long term view.
I take a rather longer, long term view than my illiterate Old Harrovian pal Zak and note that at least one broker (Hybridan) reckons that Optibiotix shares could trade at 200p by 2017 IF it delivers on all that it has promised. But I accept that there are a lot of IFs in that analysis and anyway you don’t want a stock that has already raced ahead since August.
And so that brings me to a sister company, Premaitha (NIPT)

I’m biased as RMPC owns stacks of these shares. So please take that caveat on board but here is a pretty comprehensive note on Optibiotix (OPTI) from Investor’s Champion which – I think – explains why you should be so excited about this stock.
