Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Eurasia, Boohoo, Vast and Verditek - all very possible zeros but when?

In today’s podcast I start with another couple of thoughts on the war in Ukraine and why a peace deal could see Eurasia Mining (EUA) have to ‘fess as to the lack of any real bidder and go to zero. I also look at a raft of other possible zeros discussing the reasons why for Verditek (VDTK) where my analysis suggests it is already essentially insolvent, Tintra (TNT), Mosman Oil & Gas (MSMN) and Boohoo.com (BOO). I also comment on the pre bailout pump at Guild ESports (GILD) – oh and a new speaker at ShareStock has been announced HERE.

Message from Evil Banksta on a 5 Star holiday break – why Upland is a joke valuation

Evil Banksta described at ShareStock how he takes Mrs Banksta on numerous luxury holidays funded by his winnings from shorting and then spends all day in front of a PC plotting his next swoop on some overvalued promote. And as such ,from a five star hotel somewhere hot and warm, I have received this message about Upland Resources (UPL) where the Banksta is short. I have no skin in the game but the great bear says:

Photo Article from ShareStock No 5 – Jourdan through to Frisby & beyond

After tea things started to go wrong with timings and Bev in charge of catering started to feel ill and so there were logistics issues creeping in. So I am afraid that guests missed out on home made ice cream and also lavender cordial. We almost have a date for next year sorted out (provisionally its September 7) so we will get things bang on next time! Back on the main stage it was Paul Jourdan whose talk was topical in light of Malcolm Stacey’s column today.

Photo Article from ShareStock No4 – this fellow thought he'd beaten the old master at Croquet As Andrew Bell winds up the IRA man

And so after lunch it was Peter Hambro (gold), Dominic Frisby (Bitcoin and a bit of gold) and me ( no longer convinced by either) on stage.  Both guests knew their stuff and were excellent but I wonder if this debate is really of that much interest these days.

Photo Article No 2 Sharestock 2023 - the worst dressed speaker contest, Jim's Dog meets one of my cats & the Tingo spy

After Brian Kinane finished it was myself and Peter Brailey on oil stocks. I want you to appreciate how awful is his dress sense. Jim Mellon’s dog could not handle Peter’s shirt and went outside to talk to one of my cats and also to my wife and Dominic Frisby, a man sporting an equally high volume jacket. My wife is the lady not leading the dog, that is Jim’s sister.

I cannot say how much I like and admire and am grateful to Nigel Wray. He was one of a select group at my last wedding 10 years ago and he will be invited to the next one.

The broad bean crop this year was a bit of a disaster and we shall gloss over that. But I have had some success with dwarf French beans which have supplied a few meals and keep on going.  They are, as I have explained to Joshua, magic beans. You see them below as picked, a deep purple almost black. But you then boil them and they turn green. Magic. There are about two more meals of beans and then where the plants were growing will be used for another couple of rows of radishes to be ready, pickled, for ShareStock.

And I am working hard to get an amazing speaker line-up organised as soon as possible.

The big tent is now booked for ShareStock on September 23 this year. It will seat around 100 folks but already almost 50 of those seats have been reserved.

But the speakers are lining up.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Pantheon collapses, boy you should have heard Peter Brailey on September 10

I start with a health update, finally some joy from the NHS and, even before that, I am starting to feel better. Then it is onto Pantheon Resources (PANR), Inspirit (INSP), and Atlantic Lithium (ALL) and share options, incentivising the dead. Then macro calls on interest rates, inflation, the real economy, shares, bitcoin, gold and oil. Details of ShareStock 2023 on September 23 are HERE

VINDICATED AGAIN: Made.com – it is over now: Administrators appointed

While the brokers told you to fill your boots with shares in Made.com (MADE) after its £775 million IPO last June, I warned you again and again that this would end badly, as you can see HERE. Made featured prominently in my 2022 ShareStock presentation. This company never had one profitable year in its 12 year existence and now as it calls in the administrators, shareholders have lost everything and the recriminations begin, led by establishment knobhead Brent Hoberman who founded this crock.

BREAKING: Jim Mellon, Matt Earl and Malcolm Burne join the fun – Sharestock 2023 now open for bookings

Some folks said that I did not give them enough notice about ShareStock 2022 so they were on holiday, could not find anywhere to stay or had accepted a prior engagement. So for 2023 I am giving you almost a year’s notice of an even more unusual event! We start with some amazing new speakers:

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Diary date 23 September 2023

Put it in your diary now. That is ShareStock 2023. Come on Jimbo you have more than a year to persuade your Mrs to allow you out for the weekend. Courage mon brave! In the podcast I look at Audioboom (BOOM), Parsley Box (MEAL), Fevertree (FEVR) and the greed of Novum, king of the spivs Jon Bellis and Strand Hanson with 2 Standard List IPOs today. No way on earth with that structure will anyone bar the crony capitalists make money from those deals. Coke & hookers all round.

Picture Article Sharestock 2022, Two Till Very late Indeed

Sadly, photographer C did not hang around for the cold salmon, stuffed marrows, leeks and new potatoes with mint all from the garden. Nor for the home made ice cream and for the drinking which continued until 9 PM. And for some of us even longer as home made nettle beer was opened up inside the house. Next year he must stay for that and so can you. The date is now fixed as September 23 2023 and we have a new really big name headline speaker. But back to 2022.

Picture Article Sharestock 2022, Noon to Two

By noon, thanks to the verbose Peter Brailey, we were running late and thus lunch arrived while I did a double act with Boatman Capital which I really enjoyed. Great analysis from him and a few jokes thrown in as we talked about some crooks and some overvalued stocks not run by crooks. And we talked about transparency and short selling.

Picture Article Sharestock 2022, 10 AM to c12

Folks carried on tucking into croissants however much I urged them to go to the main tent. The home made jam was just so good. But the cat was patient and still waiting for us and Gabriel Grego was ready and, later than scheduled Lucian and I kicked the day off. We over-ran too but talked about a lot of crooks.

Folks registered in the farmyard and headed through the main barn and up onto the new 35 yard by 35 yard elevated lawn ending with a Ha Ha where Sharestock took place. In the pictures below you see the tents, folks enjoying breakfast of croissants with butterand home made damson and blackberry jams and heading to the stand manned by my son Joshua who was obtaining an early lesson in the joys of capitalism. All profits on the stand go to his ice cream fund.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast and Photo: a bear with a sore head

The photo below was of me at Sharestock talking about fraud. I discuss the day and ask those who attended to say which speakers I should drop for next year and to make any other comments. Then I discuss what profits warnings are inevitable a week on Tuesday.  PS Thanks to those offering gifts of wine and ouzo yesterday. It is much appreciated although I am not inquite  the right place to start on them today.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: God Save the Queen - we battle on

I am a Republican but was an admirer of the late Queen. I reflect a bit on her death and on mawkish sentimentality and appropriated grief. I can’t think she would have approved of either. ShareStock tomorrow will go ahead as planned. With folks having flown in from many places to attend it is too late to cancel even if I thought it appropriate which I do not. I then talk about Sosandar (SOS) asking when its profits warning will be? Then about Manolete (MANO ) and Gear4Music (G4M).

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast : an absolute shocker from the FCA - Zamaz & free Cineworld cash thanks to the morons

I end with some logistics on Sharestock, booking for supper, tickets etc – we are now looking at almost 80 seats on the lawn. If you want to book yours please do so this weekend so I can sort out catering etc HERE. I start with economics lessons for the NHS and greedy and lazy Shipmans, then onto Cineworld (CINE), then thanks to Evil Banksta, what is an RCF and musicMagpie (MMAG). Finally today’s new issue Zamaz (ZAMZ) a £77 million IPO worth, £350,000. This is a true shocker. What is the FCA thinking about in permitting this to list on the Standard List?

Photo article: Hard at work in the kitchen at the Welsh Hovel

Yesterday, as my Oxford contemporaries discovered whether they were moving up or down the slippery pole at Westminster, my five year old son Joshua and I celebrated getting a sex pest suspended from his work, by going blackberry picking. It is horses for courses I guess. But boy was it fun as we discovered two new spots where nobody seems to have been and which were dripping with blackberries.  Joshua’s motive is that if we picked enough I could make more cordial which then becomes ice cream. His birthday party looms and he is keen that his friends have his favourite ice cream. Meanwhile…

Tom Winnifrith: New shorts, old shorts, no recordings no holds barred in just 8 days

It is 8 days to Sharestock when 70-80 folks will spend the day in a tent on a raised garden on the banks of the River Dee, eight m,iles from Chester but in Wales! There will be free drinks all day and up to four meals of locally produced food. There is salmonand pike fishing, prize croquet but this day is for those who want to make more money from shares. It will be fun and entertaining with no speaker, least of all me, pulling their punches.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast - could or should Boohoo.com go bust?

I start with a nasty shock my grandmother, Lesbia Cochrane, got in the late 1920s. This is relevant I suggest that a whole swathe of millenials could be getting a similar shock this year and that is one of many reasons why I pose the Boohoo (BOO) question. I look at its balance sheet, cashflows, shocking G (as in ESG) and find myself agreeing with ouzo man. Thewn the chart below and what it means for any company including Purplebricks (PURP) , getting some PR dictated puffery in The Times today, exposed to UK housing. Finally it is 12 days to ShareStock. I am off to mow the lawn for the tents next, book your seats HERE

Photo Article from the Welsh hovel - blackberry and apple crumble

I am working like a demon picking blackberries with Joshua in order to produce as much blackberry cordial as possible. On Saturday we spent an hour picking at our two favourite sites and the amount we produced generated 600 ml of cordial which is enough to make three litres of ice cream. But with both Sharestock and Joshua’s birthday party looming I need about 6 litres, plus some for normal family use. And fear not there will be other ice creams at both events (lavender and rhubarb & ginger). So it is all hands to the coalface.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Is Naked Wines going to run out of cash & is bad news already priced in at the housebuilders?

Congratulations to those remembering Steve Holdsworth with a pint at 10 AM today. That is more than I could manage. Staying with the booze theme I discuss why Naked Wines (WINE) may run out of cash and how bad it is and could be. Then it is onto the housebuilders: is the bad news priced in with sub double figure PEs?  Sharestock is now 14 days away. To get your seat book HERE

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: was this Zak Mir's worst ever (undeclared) paid for forecast ever?

I start with a joke the late Steve Holdsworth would have appreciated for I can confirm that reports of his death were, sadly, not exaggerated. Then onto two US oil plays where I see big troubles ahead: Canadian Overseas Petroleum (COPL) and Zephyr Energy (ZPHR). Then onto the failings of Aquis in covering up the sins of disgraced Graham Mullis at Love Hemp (LIFE) and onto another shocker from the lobster pot Evrima (EVA), hat tip M for that one. Finally, a detailed look at Powerhouse Energy (PHE), its dismal interims, Zak’s appalling forecast/plain paid for ramping and the looming cash crisis set to unfold by this time next year. The big tent for ShareStock arrived today. Gosh it is heavy. I am dreading trying to put it up. To get inside it book your seats HERE.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: RIP The man in the Paddington Dungeon, should I report Andrew Bell to the FCA and/or push Steve O'Hara in the River Dee at Sharestock?

If Steve Holdsworth has not passed away as I was told I hope he enjoys what I have to say about him. If he has that is my greatest loss today although I do also discuss Optibiotix (OPTI) and Skinbiotherapeutics (SBTX) in detail, the two battering the value of my pension fund. I won’t push Steve O’ Hara in the River at Sharestock but if he brings his chairman I’d be tempted. Grilling O’Hara in person over a Wrexham lager is surely another reason for you to book HERE. The number of seats now needed: 74. Join the crowd on September 10. I discuss Red Rock Resources (RRR), Allied Minds (ALM), Canadian Overseas Petroleum (COPL) and, on behalf of a convalescing Nigel Somerville, Haydale Graphene (HAYD).

Photo article from the Welsh Hovel - Joshua and I press first apple juice of 2022

The apples should be falling later but this hot summer means that in the old orchard by the river they are starting to drop already. So they should be almost ripe. If I wait longer more will fall down the sloping banks into the river or just sit on the ground waiting for worms and other bugs. And so Joshua and I gathered a large plastic ball full and did our first press of ther year, aided by our new toy, an apple scratter.

Photo article from the Welsh hovel - jam tomorrow

We have one damson tree here at the Welsh hovel up in the vegetable patch. It overhangs the road down to the hovel and you know when the fruit are ripe as they spatter onto the road and your car crunches over them as you drive in or out. There was a second tree alongside it but the gales took it and I have planted a cherry tree in its stead. For there is already a second source of damsons. My neighbours have a tree which leans over into our garden so we are allowed to pick its fruit too. Our neighbours are in their nineties and their needs are not that great.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Explaining why Victoria and Cineworld are zeros and why Malcolm is bonkers

I start with gardening news and a bit sbout ShareStock 2022 and 2023 and urge prompt ticket booking for the former HERE. Why Victoria (VCP) is a zero in waiting is a matter for Sharestock but today I look at why Cineworld (CINE) has not collapsed yet but why it will. Then there is Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO) and why it MUST end in tears whatever PL says.  Finally I comment on the lunacy of Malcolm Stacey. I think he meant to send today’s column to the Guardian letters page, it is insanity writ large.
