Optibiotix – Slimbiome now in Cookies at WalMart & Costco

Of course, those who know best will insist that this in no way validates the IP of Optibiotix (OPTI) and is a small deal which will not generate any license (and thus almost all margin with no working capital needed) profits at all. Whatever… So why has it not been announced?

Optibiotix confirms report here 2 days ago – Slimbiome US launch: STRONG BUY

Tom Winnifrith writes: Two days ago on this very website I gave four reasons why I have never been so bullish about Optiubiotix (OPTI) with the shares then at a 60p offer. Now the offer is 67p and the shares are still a massive buy at up to 80p with a target to top slice at 125p achievable within months.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: ValiRx is a false market - why it must issue an RNS now!

In today’s podcast I discuss freedom of expression with reference to Alistair Stewart, Andrew Monk, Schroders and a whore’s drawers.  I look at ValiRx (VAL), the joke that is NEX Exchange Regulation, Oracle Power (ORCP), Andalas Energy (ADL) and Haydale Graphene (HAYD). Finally I defend No Gold ( please donate to the Rogue Bloggers for Woodlarks old chap, HERE) and report back on my Optibiotix (OPTI), Slimbiome weight loss programme.

4 pieces of Optibiotix news but only 2 announced – I have never been so bullish

I am now a customer as well as a shareholder having ordered two boxes of Slimbiome to help me shift, ahem, a few pounds. I shall report back on my progress. But you want to gain pounds don’t you? Well at a 60p offer, the way to do that is to buy more Optibiotix (OPTI) shares. I have as I have never been more confident about the company and its prospects. Let me explain why with reference to the four bits of news out this week.

The photos below show the two boxes of Slimbiome that arrived today at the Welsh Hovel and also one of the sachets, 21 of which sit in each box. I have used a standard loo roll in the pictures to give you an indication of size.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast - My Slimbiome arrives this afternoon

In today’s podcast I discuss Optibiotix (OPTI), how the critics have moved the goalposts and the ghastly Daily Mail. I also look at Big Dish (DISH) where ennui is setting in, at misleading interims from the worthless cur that is Plutus Powergen (PPG), at serial confetti issuer Zenith Energy (ZEN) and then at Eurasia Mining (EUA) where, after this post, I should say Optiva is now denying it is doing a placing. But frankly, it’s still a matter of when not if.

Optibiotix – er should you not have declared this related party deal with your chairman?

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.

Optibiotix – Indian Slimbiome regulatory all-clear another piece in the jigsaw

Optibiotix – the good news keeps on coming : DO NOT SELL

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.

Optibiotix: Slimbiome deal with Boots on the cards?

Critics of Obtibiotix (OPTI) reckon that it is all jam tomorrow and it needs to announce big name deals which see real rollout of its products and commercialisation. Well how would a deal with Boots for its Slimbiome weight-loss drinks and snack bars do for starters?
