Tom Winnifrith Podcast: USA Election and the Russia Ukraine war - the grim news for Presidents Biden and Zelensky accelerates

I start with a few words on President Carter. Then on the ground in Ukraine things are looking ever more grim and that only adds to the woes of President Joe Biden.I discuss some amaing recent poll data on the swing states, three of which now look rock solid red, why blacks and hispanics are swinging towards Trump and wonder what real 5 way polling in Virginia, Minnesota and New Jersey would look like: are these blue states now swing states?

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Diversified Energy can be a zero ( new bear dossier) & why Pete Brailey and the BBMs are being played

I start with a big day for Joshua. I guess if he does get into expensive King’s Chester any thoughts of imminent retirement are off the table. Then it is Peter Brailey and Serinus (SENX), Diversified Energy (DEC), Vast Resources (VAST) and NightCap (NGHT) where, in both cases, AIM Regulation must act, Argo Blockchain (ARB), still a short at 14p, and Supply&ME Capital (SYME) and doing the granular maths on when, not if it is a zero

Tom Winnifrith Podcast: Russia, Ukraine, the American election and Stormy Daniels

I start by reminding you all why the war in Ukraine and the US election are so closely tied up and also why I get so angry being lied to. I discuss what is happening on the front line and reports I am hearing of how casualty numbers are far greater than we are being told. Then as Stormy Daniels takes the stand in New York I look at that and other Donald Trump legal cases, a fascinating poll in Wisconsin, who Kennedy is hurting the most and how things look set for November.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Why the FCA should have a butchers at Ceres Power

Before turning my attention to Daphne du Maurier and underpants I say a few words about betting on the US election where, as I predicted, The Donald is now a racing cert for the GOP Nomination and, I reckon, favourite to win the General. Then it is on to Ceres Power (CWR), Tern (TERN), Zoo Digital (ZOO), Genflow Biosciences (GENF), Verditek (VDTK), Belluscura (BELL) and Centamin (CEY).

Tom Winnifrith podcast: Russia, Ukraine and the American Election

In the latest of these series I start in Ukraine where things are getting rapidly worse for the home team. I look at what is happening and what will happen next. That is linked to the US election where I look at the swing state polls, discuss the Trump show trials and how US voters perceive then, Robert Kennedy jr and who his candidacy hurts most and conclude that things are looking ever better for President Trump. Things can change but as things stand the smart money is so much on trump that I ponder what happens if polling trends continue theoir recent run up to the Democrat convention. Will Biden throw in the twel at that point? What happens then?

The bulk of the podcast covers my damning expose of NightCap (NGHT) which is the sort of journalism which really excites me and makes me think I’d never retire. It is shocking and I explain what should happen next, for any Allenby employees listening!

BREAKING: Tom Winnifrith & Evil Banksta: Belluscura, TMT Acquisitions, Nigel Wray and Dowgate

Nigel Wray attended my most recent wedding almost ten and a half years ago and he is my friend. Or I really hope that he still is. I do not wish that to change but the optics of the proposed takeover by Belluscura (BELL) of TMT Acquisitions (TMTA) now look terrible for him and he should insist that it be renegotiated. I flagged this up in Bearcast yesterday but I now dig deeper and bring in comment from Evil Banksta who is short of Belluscura.

Finally a long look at Belluscura (BELL) and TMT Aquisitions (TMTA).The deal really stinks and should be called off which would utterly fuck Belluscura.

Tom Winnifrith podcast: is the Trump Biden election now too close to call?

That is what Betfair/The Daily Mail is now suggesting. I look at what the latest polls actually say, whether you bshould believe them and what is driving them. I do not agree with the Mail’s conclusion though I sense a very little bit of a tightening where it matters in the swing states but cannot really explain why as there are two factors right now which should be hurting Biden.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: the Canadian Overseas SEDAR filing spelling out how it will die and shareholders will be wiped out

Shame there was no RNS on Friday. But the SEDAR filing below spells out the slow and the quick death of Canadian Overseas Petroleum (COPL). Despite the proposed bailout at just 0.15p, it is a slam dunk zero and anyone holding is just mad. As for the motherfuckers at Yellow Jersey who misled investors and smeared me when I first exposed this crock at 2p just 20 months ago, they really should go fuck themselves. I await their apology but am not holding my breath as Dominic Barretto and his team and morally bankrupt pustules on the arse of AIM.

SkinBioTherapeutics (SBTX) has announced a placing and “retail offer” at 19p per share to raise, respectively, a minimum of £3 million and up to £0.25 million, with CEO Stuart Ashman stating this is needed “to help with the current commercialisation and development strategy of AxisBiotix in skin health, with our latest venture beginning in acne, as well as providing a stronger financial base to support our strategic partnering discussions around three of our other business pillars. The funding will also support us with working capital and strengthen our balance sheet”. Tom Winnifrith has applied for shares in the offer and we suggest you do too BUT Ashman is talking bollocks and we will be slashing our target price from 150p.

Finally it is back to Skinbiotherapeutics (SBTX) and why I stand by comments made last Friday HERE and indeed go further.

In this podcast I discuss the damascene conversion of the Mrs on a couple of issues and I say “thank you” to those donating to Woodlarks on the Christmas grotto appeal. We are now almost 75% of the way to target so if you can spare a fiver ( or more) please do so today HERE. I look at Verditek (VDTK), Tern (TERN), Red Rock Resources (RRR), mention Skinbiotherapeutics (SBTX), Cellular Goods (CBX) and have a look at Parkmead (PMG) where i am not convinced that Peter Brailey is right to be just so bearish.

In this bonus Bearcast, I explain why I am cutting my target price materially for Skinbiotherapeutics (SBTX) but still see this as a potential five bagger. I am furious with Stuart Ashman who is greedy and has not delivered. And I think the company’s broker, Cavendish, has a lot of questions to answer.

Tom Winnifrith podcast: Russia & Ukraine: the impending fall of "fortress" Avdiivka, the death of Alexei Navalny & that Tucker Carlson interview

What is happening in Avdiivka is truly horroble but is being eitther ignored or misreported by the Western press. The death of Navalny is very sad and I do blame President Putin. The Tucker Carlson interview raises interesting questions and the response fromthe GroupThink is predictable. At some stage we will have to force Ukraine to negotiate a peace with Russia which, though you would not believe it if you follow the UK media, is making ground on all fronts.

I do not mention Israel in the podcast but discuss Caracal Gold (GCAT), Supply@ME Capital (SYME) and Technology Minerals (TM1) and the two critical differences between the Standard list and the AIM sewer.

I was on a road trip yesterday so only noticed the after hours ‘fess up late in the evening. Upland’s shares will be destroyed, it is a complete vindication of my coverage and some folks should be going to jail if the FCA, regulator of the Standard List, launches a criminal enquiry as it must do. Upland Resources (UPL) management are – at best – guilty of criminal naivete and negligence, To show that they are not part of a criminal conspiracy, perhaps involving the tweet below, they should be demanding an FCA enquiry – I hope you followed my short advice as these shares will, as I predicted, collapse like a failed souffle on Monday.

The timeline below is funded by you the taxpayer and is used to tell our kids about Srebrenica in Bosnia. They are taught fake history. I discuss why so many folks, especially the young, fail to grasp what a holocaust really is, what genocide really is and why it is more than ethnic cleansing. In part this is a history lesson for the young in part a sad tale about why fewer and fewer folks will say #NeverAgain and mean it. The candle may flicker in this house this January 27 but across Europe and America the candles are going out. I refer to this article from two years ago about Srebrenica

Tom Winnifrith Podcast: I'm still no Putin apologist, but I was right all along, you were lied to and Ukraine is losing its war with Russia

I have to start with usual prefaces: I am no Putin apologist, he was wrong to invade Ukraine. But I hate all wars and also being lied to by a media and political class GroupThink and – as I have flagged up on this site numerous times – we were all lied to.  I called out those lies. Many smeared me as a Putin apologist for doing so. I hope now they see the error of their ways. The harsh reality is that Ukraine is now losing ground and running out of men and women to fight for it. I explain various reasons why there has to be a peace and I curse folks like Boris Johnson who prolonged this war for two years so needlessly. They have blood on their hands.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: the explicit case for sacking Alison Rose as NatWest CEO if she was the source of the BBC Coutts Farage leak

I start with Ms Rose and NatWest (NWG). then I look at Optibiotix (OPTI) and why I would not sell at 15p after interviewing Steve O’Hara today. I look at Cakebox (CBOX), AMT Energy (AMTE), Lansdowne Oil & Gas (LOGP) and at IOG (IOG).

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: what a wicked world we live in, I despair

The phone call that was today’s person from Porlock was my mother-in-law who had just come home from an appointment to find smashed windows in her house just across the river from here. My 93 year old father-in-law, deaf as a post, had slept while burglars stole everything of value throughout the house. What a world we live in. From that I move onto the scandals of Dave Richards and Wandisco (WAND), Canadian Overseas Petroleum (COPL), Miriad (MIRI), Bidstack (BIDS), Supply@ME Capital (SYME) and Oxford Nanopore (ONT) and dual US listings.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: I've always seen R&D tax credits as a system abused, now the Government seems to agree

I start on the matter of R&D tax credits. Maybe readers can help by nominating companies such as Deepverge (DVRG)) and, I think, Versarien (VRS) which have taken the piss in this regard and maybe in for a nasty shock. Then on to UK house prices and why Malcolm is so 100% wrong on housebuilding stocks, and the UK and US General Elections next year. On the latter the polls really are a damning indictment of American politics.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Is IOG or Rishi Sunak the bigger zero?

In today’s podcast I discuss the idea that you can cure inflation without pain, public sector pay hikes and folks paying their mortgage with a credit card. I look at the idea of abolishing inheritance tax in such a context: does Rishi Sunak really have a death wish for his party? Then it is onto Zoo Digital (ZOO) again and onto IOG (IOG).

I’ve had enough of it all and sooner or later some moron is going to get his collar felt. Bring it on. Then it is onto Versarien (VRS), Zoo Digital (ZOO), actors and porn actors and the march of AI, MGC Pharmaceuticals (MXC) and Argo Blockchain (ARB) whose shares are surging.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast - another hour with the Police

No BBMs do not get too excited. It is not me for I have done nothing wrong. My discussions were about the obscene email one such moron sent me last Friday. After that I discuss IOG (IOG), pointing you to two tweets from morons below and the share price chart. I await apologies for I am never short but am usually right. IOG is very possibly a zero, today’s update is grim. Then it is onto Mirriad Advertising (MIRI), Cloudbreak Discovery (CDL) and its disgraced CEO, Unbound (UBG) , MGC Pharmaceutics (MXC) and Flip Flop’s Kavango Resources (KAV) and why Ben Turney should be sacked in disgrace.

Then its cash crisis ahoy at Colin Bird’s Bezant Resources (BZT) and finally when is it a good time to stand down as CEO and what can it mean, I refer to FinnCrap (FCAP) and to Pod Point (PODP) PS I reckon that FinnCap is due another profits warning PDQ as is its proposed merger partner Cenkos (CNKS).

Tom Winnifrith Podcast: Radio 4's Today Programme, the Poet Laureate Simon Armitage and the global warming GroupThink

The Poet Laureate is in the Arctic writing poems about global warming. Mr Simon Armitage was interviewed by Amal Rajan and Martha Kearney on  BBC Radio 4’s Today show and it was just so lamentable. The poet talked utter tommy rot and the presenters had done no homework on hard data to call him out. It was the London liberal elite GroupThink  on steroids. With data I call out the lot of them for serving up fake news and fake poetry.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: if Piers Linney is worth £69m I am a banana

I question the net wealth claimed by two former Dragons in the Mail on Sunday. Linney’s claim is a joke following the demise of Outsourcery (OUT) as is that of Sarah Willingham of Nightcap (NGHT) which I look at after its latest crap acquisition and lack of profits warning. Then it is onto Wandisco (WAND) and the proposed bailout at just 50p, to Eurasia (EUA) where nothing at all adds up. Then onto today’s ouzo moment, the suspension of Eight Capital Partners (ECP), the insolvent fraud Supply@ME Capital (SYME) and Canadian Overseas (COPL) whose shareholders’  reactions to my latest piece show themselves to be as unpleasant as they are stupid. When Canadian, already 90% down since my first big bear call, heads towards 0p as it will inevitably do I will have no sympathy at all.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Lets go for a quick death and vote Labour and I really am bored with gold

Nigel says that my boredom is a buy signal. But is it? Maybe it is right to be bored as something has changed.  After that a bit on house prices and why I don’t see a mega crash but would not buy housebuilders as Malcolm suggests I do. Finally, why not go for a quick death rather than a slow one and vote Labour? Oh, and I remind you why I may not be at liberty to bearcast on Tuesday. CORRECTION: Fellow Hammer J Price points out that Rice will be on £15 million a year not a week as I said in the podcast..

After 12 years of campaigning, a result from Warwick School last night as reported HERE but now another victim of sexual abuse has been in touch so I guess the campaigning goes on. I am almost certain that I will name a paedophile teacher tomorrow. Then more, after I exposed it in almost 300 articles, ouzo c/o Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO) which looks to be, effectively, brown bread.  I look at looming share suspensions including Premier African (PREM), Boohoo (BOO) and Revolution Beauty (REVB), the fraud Supply@ME Captal (SYME) and Cellular Goods (CBX), also on deadline day.

Canadian Overseas shareholder wants to cremate Tom Winnifrith and Gary Newman then Guillotine us both

I shall leave you to ponder how one chops the head off ashes but one suspects that this shareholder in Canadian Overseas Petroleum (COPL) is not the brightest spark as he wishes death on myself and Gary on the LSE Bulletin Boards. Of course if he’d sold and gone short at 25p as I advised he would, with the shares at 2.5p and set to fall to zero be happier and richer. But he knew better than a trained oil analyst and thinks he will get rich again if Gary and me are killed. Whatever…

Thanks so much to all who have donated. You ALL have an open invite to the camp. If you have forgotten to sponsor my last walk you can do so HERE. Then I talk about Avacta (AVCT) its placing I exposed yesterday HERE (might it, in fact, be lower than 90p?) and the denial and stupidity of some of its shareholders. Then I point out that Nigel would have made more money selling all his gold and switching into pasta and cat food ( or even tins of baked beans) so ask can he really still view the yellow metal as a store of value? .

With two exposes today it is a Tingo (US:TIO) – tastic day for me. I discuss why I am so interested and why this is a zero.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Andrew Bell vs Harry Adams vs Arthur Millholland vs Al Sisto vs Lyin' & Cheatin' Chris Cleverly

Can you list them in terms of long term career value destruction? I start with Kefi Gold & Copper (KEFI) and some of the daft comments made. The to More Acquisitions (TMOR) and Doc Holliday’s cunning EGM plan which will surely destroy the company and lose it its quote. Then Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO), Red Rock Resources (RRR), Canadian Overseas Petroleum (COPL) and Tern (TERN) which looks to me to be almost bust and where I look forward to reporting its auditors to the FRC when the Fat Lady appears on stage.  I should add what I forgot to say in the podcast: Tingo (US:TIO) is the most obvious zero from the province of Norfolk that I have see for ages. And it is shortable.

Tom Winnifrith bonus Bearcast: Kefi placing and Primary Bid Offer at 0.7p - I suggest you take it up

Another after hours placing from Kefi Gold & Copper no doubt has many of you crossing Harry Adams off your Christmas card list. But I try to justify it, discuss what the fundamental value is, the upside and downside risks and conclude that with the shares at 0.84p and the Primary Bid offer at 0.7p you should take it up not to try and flip but to double or treble your money or more. If you are not a Primary Bid member and want to take the offer up, sign up HERE and this website will get a small payment to put towards the goat fund. I also mention Amaroq (AMRQ) in this podcast.

I preface this by condemning the Russian invasion and President Putin. I am no apologist but I am a realist. I ask you to consider the real and proportionate scale of losses in this war, if you are happy being lied to by Ukraine as well as Russia and if you are happy to keep writing blank cheques. Finally I offer a scenario by when after a few more blank cheques and much more bloodshed, the West forces Ukraine to cave. Will you consider that money and blood well spent?

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.

I start with a slam dunk political bet in the wake of Donald Trump’s looming arrest – a clean sweep for the Republicans in 2024, as I explained a couple of weeks ago HERE. Then onto why house prices falling at the fastest rate for 14 years ( a misleading headline) are to be welcomed but not if you are long Purplebricks (PURP) or the housebuilders. Not that I’d necessarily go short either. Today’s ouzo is sponsored by Asimilar (ASLR). I also cover Genedrive (GDR) and the placing it will not ‘fess to although it is clearly underway. Then I look at Pensana (PRE) where yakking on about climate change and hiring stacks of lesbians from Islington seems not to have prevented a bit of a looming cash crisis. How, I wonder, do folks in London N1 describe a fat lady in a woke way? Hey Magna Carta, guess what I forgot to mention today? HERE is a clue

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: there are worse hobbies than raising a quarter of a million quid for a great cause like Woodlarks

But reader Magna Carta says that you all want me to stop mentioning what he terms my “hobby”. Matthew’s Dog and Catriona will be delighted that I think he can go feck himself, please do feel free to donate HERE. Nearly all of the podcast , as ever, is about companies and I cover: Inland Homes (INL), Moonpig (MOON), Caracal Gold (GCAT), VSA Capital (VSA) and its revenue recognition and the odd company that is Kelso (KLSO). PS did you know that Andrew Monk who runs, what he terms, Very Sexy Andrew, went to Oriel College Oxford? He does mention it now and again.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast - an amazing apple from Wales

I start with a few ramblings on turning the Welsh Hovel into a homestead and an apple I have just eaten. I end with a reminder that 98% of you have yet to donate to Rogue Bloggers for Woodlarks. I am sure that you can each afford a tenner, please do donate HERE. Then I look in detail at Strix (KETL) and explain why Versarien (VRS) really is screwed. Unless you have dealt with banks when running a struggling company – as I have – you just won’t get why. I also look at BSF Enterprises (BSFA), Wishbone Gold (WSBN) and Inland (INL).

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Catriona and Matthew's Dog will love it: Tortilla Mexican do the maths while FYB with Skinbiotherapeutics

I start with Tortilla Mexican Grill (MEX) where, as is his wont, young Steve Moore was far too generous yesterday in calling at an avoid. I do the hard maths and it is in deep merde. Then it is onto UK Oil & Gas (UKOG), Pennpetro (PPP), Predator Oil & Gas (PRD) and the bloody useless FCA. Finally Skinbiotherapeutics (SBTX) before, principally to annoy poster Magna Carta, a few words on why I ask you to donate today to Rogue Bloggers for Woodlarks - you can do so HERE

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: six little small cap piggies

I end with a discussion about myself, Andrew Bell, his imaginary marathon running g/f and Cheryl - please donate to Rogue Bloggers for Woodlarks HERE.

Has Andrew told anyone today that he went to Oriel College Oxford?

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: The Rogue Bloggers are now 8 (+2 fantasy women) & the wooden floor that protects female failures like Sharon White & La Willingham

I start on journalist ethics, that is to say not selling shares before advising readers to and a chap called Magna Carta who reminds me of the weeds in my strawberry patch. Then onto Rogue Bloggers where Andrew Bell says he is joining us and bringing a fantasy woman. I shall bring Cheryl. Please donate HERE. Finally, referring to Sarah Willingham and Dame Sharon White of John Lewis infamy (see the Daily Mail article I refer to HERE) I suggest that a glass ceiling for women in business has been replaced by a wooden floor.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: is Inland totally 100% fecked?

If you sense the pain in my legs please donate to this great cause HERE. Then I discuss Inland (INL) and more red flags. It is either the cheapest stock on the market or a zero and I know what my money is on.

Tomorrow is my third training walk for Rogue Bloggers for Woodlarks.

I cover Amigo (AMGO), Versarien (VRS) and the liquidity trap, Inland (INL), Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO) before I turn my fire on Celadon (CEL).

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Another disaster from Andrew Monk and an excruciating video from the disgraced broker

I start with a few thoughts on getting old as Olaf suffers her last ever Oxford tutorial. Then it is onto SVB, an apology to Euro loon Jonathan Price – let this be the last – and a few words on Aferian (AFRN). Then, after today’s ouzo moment as the fuzz arrest a fraudster whose company I have exposed, onto the disaster that is Tungsten West (TUN). This company was IPO’d by the Monkey and VSA to monetize and asset first discovered in 1867 and which has flopped more times since 1916 than Monk might care to admit. I discuss its financial woes, VSA’s research coverage and bring you a video featuring Monk dressed as a road builder and celebrating the endorsement of Liz Truss. It is excruciating. Then I cover Ariana Resources (AAU), Condor Gold (CNR) and Chesterfield Resources (CHF) and how some disposals are just so misleading.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Atlantic Lithium collapsing on Blue Orca bear dossier

I start with a rant about the fecking GPs and the bloody teachers as approx. 0.0 inches of snow accumulates and my father in law has to go to hospital again. I am so bloody angry about both. Then it is onto the collapse in the share price of Atlantic Lithium (ALL) – about which I explicitly warned you all just under four months ago HERE – after a bear dossier was published: see below. Then I look at Red Rock Resources (RRR), some of the #IWD jokes including one from Jeremy Corbyn and one from Guild Esports (GILD). Finally it is ouzo o’clock as musicMagpie (MMAG) serves up dire results and warns of tough times ahead. Footnote: at 4.15 PM Atlantic shares were suspended “pending an announcement”

Today I look at Conroy Gold & Natural Resources (CGNR), Ariana (AAU) and Bluebird Merchant Ventures (BMV). Then at Pantheon Resources (PANR) and at ADVFN (AFN). Finally Evil Banksta has sent me this Bulletin Board post below on Technology Minerals (TMI). I have always been bearish on this stock as any company in any way linked to Chris Cleverly is always a dog with fleas. The post below looks to be kosher, thought it may not be, so, I suspect, does not alter the bear case and my target remains 0p.

Tom Winnifrith BONUS bearcast: Advanced Oncotherapy, 9 weeks from death & now a full blown death spiral in place AFTER today's £5m financing

Was there any insider dealing before a mid afternoon financing update from Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO). A 32% share price fall suggests that the Pope is also a Catholic. I discuss the new £4.975 million financing which still leaves Advanced only 9 weeks away from running out of cash and the full blown death spiral which cheats its way around par value rules but which will crush the share price.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast - the problem with sacking people, the 3 xs

Then it is onto young journalists and the problems they face, Jamie Nimmo eulogising Dan Wagner with some PR puffery in the Sunday Times. Finally why Avacta (AVCT) is such a compelling short.

I start with a bit of macro-political stuff but that does relate directly to a) Gary’s tip today and b) my muted enthusiasm for UK PLC shares. Then it is onto Kavango Resources (KAV), seemingly moving goalposts to avoid accusations of failure. Finally Colin Patterson of Bluebird Merchant Ventures (BMV) popped in after this recording. FWIW, after the meeting I conclude that the shares are a VERY STRONG BUY.

The snake oil salesman Arthur Millholland of Canadian Overseas trolls ShareProphets and Tom Winnifrith - this did not age well

On 8 April 2022 I reported Canadian Overseas Petroleum (COPL) and its CEO Arthur Millholland to the FCAbranding the CEO a “snake oil salesman” as you can see HEREHis response issued via RNS on 14 April was a direct attack on me and on this website. He branded his critics as “snake oil salesmen” and false “prophets”. He was talking about me. He said critics  did not understand accounts and were in it for my their “nefarious” gain. I suggest, never having had a position long or short in Canadian, just being a journalist who trained as an oil analyst I am today vindicated as the company warned it could go bust and its shares collapsed. Millholland’s statement is below. It has not aged well.

I start with NatWest closing down a bank branch (quite rightly) and what the fuss made by MPs etc says about the doomed UK.

Then Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO) which sounds madder by the day. It certainly does not understand economics.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: the argument for not selling rubbish like Red Rock and Wishbone

I start off with why the Times‘ demands for a Sheriff of Tipsters smacks of glass houses and throwing stones. Has its own tipster declared all conflict of interests. Then onto gold, looking at my portfolio and why I have not sold Red Rock (RRR) and Wishbone Gold (WSBN) yet despite my grave governance reservations and their failure to monetise assets whose quality I start to doubt. So why not sell and reinvest in a higher quality play I own like Centamin (CEY), Ariana (AAU) or even Kefi Gold & Copper (KEFI). One reason was the illness that laid me so low I just forgot. But there are others which I explain in the podcast, my second of the day after this photo/podcast from Lake Vyrnwy which has given me great pleasure.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Elon Musk businessman of the year or just a mega crook on a roll?

After all Time Magazine made Hitler man of the year 1938 and – I think – made Great Thunberg, the Doom Goblin, Person of the year as well. As folks in Europe and America freeze to death in coming years they will look back on both awards in an unkind way. So what of The Times making Elon its businessman of the year? As Ouzo man starts shorting Tesla (TSLA) again is this a Hitler moment? I also look at Asiamet (ARS), at whether UK retail had a better Christmas than expected and at Quantum Blockchain (QBT), surely a pre-placing pump is underway.

Tom Winnifrith Photo Bearcast: Was this another Zak Mir brown envelope job & should I buy Yourgene?

Eldur Olafsson of Amaroq (AMRQ) thinks I am a member of the British establishment. I explain why I am not. No doubt Sir Arthur Cochrane would view me as he viewed his daughter, my grandmother, as a “traitor to our class” But I am. and explain why with reference to Eldur’s company. Then it is onto Zak Mir and the Okyo (OKYO) scandal. Your link to his video is HERE. And the photo below is of Zak himself relaxing today at the Carlton Club. That is the establishment today which makes me so hostile to it all and determined to be a simple goat farmer. Then I answer a, rather unfair, question on Yourgene (YGEN) before looking at Argo Blockchain (ARB) and Angle (AGL)

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Is this the time that Bidstack's James Draper really does go to jail - questions about the interims

I start with some nerd like comments about river and reservoir levels in North Wales. Bear with me. This will be interesting I promise. Then Bidstack (BIDS) and what questions today’s shocker begs about the pre-placing interims. Surely the Nomad ( SPARK) and AIM Regulation must investigate. Then Okyo (OKYO) where post podcast recording the company has published interims on its website. Technically it missed the deadline and the FCA – whose conversations with me I discuss – must take this further. As it happens the interims are truly appalling and red flag strewn as I discuss HERE Then I discuss Lucian’s two big oil shorts: Pantheon Resources (PANR) and Canadian Overseas (COPL). He is right on both IMHO. Finally a few words on Helium One (HE1)

Tom Winnifrith postcard - the data lies you are being fed by the BBC and others: Northern Ireland does not want a United Ireland

I refer to another data manipulator, the LGBT campaigner Peter Tatchell HERE. But this is about Ulster and how you are being lied to about Catholic majorities, and the desire for Ulster to be part of a United Ireland if not now then inevitably in the future. I look at the hard data from the 2021 census which the media GroupThink, always sympathetic to the Republican cause, manipulate to post a false narrative. I also discuss the true history of the IRA and the Troubles and what are kids are not being taught as they are encouraged to romanticise evil. Maybe those of us who back Ulster might need to start explaining the real history and facts of “the troubles.”

Oxford is so full of Godless liberal tossers these days. After a brief rant on that matter I look at the importance of December to the bars and restaurant trade and how this month will be awful.

It is my intent to cut my losses when back at my desk in Wales next week and to reinvest the little cash that comes in, in a boring gold play with a dividend which will not be passing the begging bowl around numerous times next year. I think probably I shall buy a few more Ariana (AAU). The three companies that I slate today are Red Rock Resources (RRR), Tiger Royalties (TIR) and Wishbone Gold (WSBN)

Andrew Monk of VSA, who no longer speaks to me but only to deadwood press journalists who blow smoke up his arse, keeps on saying how wonderful Aquis is and how it will replace AIM. But it cannot unless it addresses the long tail of garbage listed there. I mention a few names but focus in on today’s statement from Love Hemp (LIFE). It is possibly the worst trading statement I have ever seen from a listed company. I then discuss why Mirriad (MIRI) may say it has £11m cash but why it is a zero.

I start remembering a career moment of shame involving Colin Bird and that brings me to Xtract Resources (XTR) where for all Bird’s dissembling surely a placing is underway? I look at the joke company eEnergy (EAAS) and the disgraceful antics of Justin the Clown.  I cover nanosynth (NNN) which I expect to go bust by New Year’s Day and Argo Blockchain (ARB) which I think is already bust. I explain how it can avoid paying its bills for a while.  Then I look at “wonder stock” Atlantic Lithium (ALL), its £1 billion NPV and how robust that is, its management, the various red flags and the inevitability of a near term placing. There are bull points here as well as bear.

Condor Gold – Jim Mellon has to bail it out at 15p: surely this should have been before sale process started?

Last week Condor Gold (CNR) announced that as part of a strategic review it was putting itself up for sale (again) which I warned was because it was out of cash and probably could not raise any. Guess what? Old Tom Winnifrith was right yet again.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Posh Spice Ltd now owes £60m but Bulb has cost every taxpayer £232

The legover reference is HERE. I am still very much under the weather with all the symptoms of covid. I am feeling a bit better but not well enough to do more than a few hours work today. Thanks to Steve for taking care of things. In the podcast I discuss Devro  (DVO) – who said young Steve and I could not tip a waiter? Then FinnCap (FCAP) then finally the dire sentiment towards mining stocks. Is it really that bad out there?

I start with a few words on Jubilee Metals (JLP) and Bluebird Merchant Ventures (BMV). Then some Trustpilot detective work on AQRU (AQRU) which, I predict, will go bust in 2023. I move on to Xtract Resources (XTR), Shearwater (SWG), Alliance Pharma (APH) and then to the impending demise of Applied Graphene Materials (AGM). Gotcha! I also cover Argo Blockchain (ARB) which I still have down as a 2022 bust, maybe as soon as this week

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Explaining why the Condor NPV is not serious and why that makes it a cracking short

I am still being pestered by my fellow Kefi Gold & Copper (KEFI) shareholders for reasons I cannot fathom. Some of them are delusional. I then turn to Microsaic (MSYS) where a statement on related party deals is needed pronto. Then onto AO World (AO.) where I do not buy into today’s rally before onto why Jim Mellon’s Condor Gold (CNR) is actually a short after today’s second attempt to put it up for sale.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: The red flag lessons from quick death/slow death Wilko

Apparently the 92 year old chain needs an emergency refinance this week. If it gets it it is a slow death in 2023. If not it is a quick death before Christmas and 16,000 P45s. I look at the red flags in this case over the past year and why I own no retail or no property stocks – there are lessons for both sectors here.  Then I ask if Dave Richards of Wandisco (WAND) has gone mad or simply stuck his own moral compass where the sun don’t shine?

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast - white collar crime DOES pay and Malcolm Breaks the habit of a lifetime

You find me making sweet chilli jam as Christmas is near. Photos later. For some companies such as nanosynth (NNN) and Versarien (VRS) time is thus running out. I look at that but start with Malcolm and his deviation from every year I have known him. Then I look at how crime does pay – Elizabeth Holmes and Theranos and, I fear,  FTX.  Then a few words on the budget, a statement of “managed decline.”

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Is Cliff Weight sniffing out insider dealing at N4 Pharma?

I start by referencing a podcast on public schools HERE and saying why I am at a funeral today. Gone are the days when the BSD at ShareSoc offered to help out those chaps at Globo (GBO) get the show back on the road. In new hands there is a suggestion of odd share dealings at N4 Pharma (N4P). I look at that and then the fundamental case against this stock. I also look at Parsley Box (MEAL) and CEO spoofing and at Eco Atlantic (ECO) and the dangers of punting on an E&P play ahead of a well.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Jeremy Hunt is a LIAR Steve O'Hara is not

Even Pete Brailey the most staunchest of Tory members you could ever meet says he has given up on the party after today’s budget. I go through two lies Jeremy Hunt told and consider how he has screwed the poor, those of us running SMEs and is protecting super rich folks with sons at Eton with another lie.  Like Peter I shall not vote Tory next time.  Then onto a man who is not a liar, Optibiotix (OPTI) boss Steve O’Hara and the presentation he gave today which is below. I mention Skinbiotherapeutics (SBTX) and an email exchange today at this point. Then a few words on Kefi Gold & Copper (KEFI) follow then on to Argo Blockchain (ARB) which I expect to go bust next week and Ceres Power (CWR) whose valuation is still bonkers despite the shares slumping by 80% since peak ramp.

Tom Winnifrith postcard: Jeremy Hunt's lie - there is NO case for not ending charitable status for public schools

Mr Hunt lied about what would happen if he ended the status which would have brought in material revenues. There is no case whatsoever for not ending such status and in doing so Mr Hunt protects the rich while the poor feel the squeeze. Now, of all times, this anomaly should be ended. The RSPCA is a charity. Woodlarks is a Charity. Eton College or Warwick School should not be allowed to claim charitable status.

As we all face a cost of living crisis with the poor and the young hardest hit, Andrew Bell insists that Opera needs more subsidy.

Then onto Kefi Gold & Copper (KEFI), Ithaca Energy (ITH), MGC Pharmaceiticals (MXC) – which looks like a possible zero – and Dignity (DTY).

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast - Clem Chambers and the most almighty spoof & extra lashings of ouzo for me after AGM

Maybe I shall save the celebratory ouzos for tonight and double up as I watch liberal tears as we see a Red Wave in the mid terms. I discuss that briefly then go on to look at Applied Graphene (AGM) and what it is like running a company facing corporate death as well as the ethics of my scoop last night. I look at Online Blockchain (OBC), Mello destroying its brand c/o Zamaz (ZAMZ), Argo Blockchain (ARB) and a couple of points about Seraphine (BUMP) from an accounting perspective and in terms of changing consumer behaviour and also how as a bear one can do non financial DD.

Then it is onto ouzo man and Purplebricks (PURP) before I turn to two gold stocks that could now rocket by Christmas, Kefi Gold & Copper (KEFI) and Bluebird Merchant Ventures (BMV).

I will do that as a bonus bearcast at some point this week. But as a teaser Verditek (VDTK) is on the list and I explain why. My Birthday is in January BTW. I cover Cineworld (CINE), ADM Energy (ADME), Technology Minerals (TM1) and Lyin’ Chris Cleverly and the CEO chap who dressed as a “good” Nazi.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: this is a bloody good one if I say so myself

Sometimes I switch off my PC thinking that was not a very good podcast. Most days I am content but today is one of those days when I think “that was a bloody good podcast” I start of with why this website is not free and how you need to change business models if the world changes and then as to the strange idea that we have a “house view” on any given stock. That is with reference to ITM Power (ITM) which I then cover in detail (more ouzo for me and for Peter Brailey, cold cabbage water for comrade Malcolm Stacey of the 6th Guardianista peaceand flower power corps). I also look in detail at the spoof from Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO), Deepverge (DVRG) en passant, but which is covered in more detail HERE, and Bidstack (BIDS) after my bombshell expose c/o Winnileaks earlier. A good day’s work. Now I can go and weed my onion patch in peace.

That was back in the days of Lastminute.com (LMC) and it showed me how the British establishment always looks after its own however much they screw up. Brent was the founder of Made.com (MADE) which I discuss. Then it is onto Union Jack (UJO), Angus Energy (ANGS), IGAS (IGAS) and Uk Oil & Gas (UKOG) and fracking.

Massive Vindication for Tom Winnifrith No 2 - Chill Brands forces to restate results by FRC after TW intervention, letter in full

When I started exposing the fraud at Zoetic, now Chill Brands (CHLL) the shares were 76p. They are now 2.4p and, FWIW, running out of cash again so a sell. The other side fought hard. Seth Freedman – who had harassed Harvey Weinstein’s victims for Harvey - was engaged by a shareholder to threaten, menace and harass me and also two other writers here and a PR girl who is known to be a friend of mine. Shame on Freedman and those who defend him like Evil Knievil. I was not bullied into silence and so, after the massive Worthington vindication earlier, here is another one a, a letter from the Financial Reporting Council.I complained to it about Chill’s accounts. Hey presto, the FRC took action and – as you can see below – forced Chill to restate.

Massive Vindication for Tom Winnifrith No1 – FCA takes Aiden Earley & the whole Worthington 5 to criminal court

We defied the threats  and those articles remain up to this day on this brave and courageous website and the trove of documents I dared to publish were all passed on to the FCA. The FCA has now charged Earley, his brother and 3 others, the Worthington 5, and they appeared in Court yesterday. As I scuttle off for a celebratory ouzo here is what the FCA states:

I also explain for BB Moron Stuart Little why breaking the news of the placing was not only not illegal but was a real public service by me and also why I shall be writing to the FCA later asking for it to investigate placings by Turner Pope and Turner Pope’s clients. Ben and James, a.k.a. the Mitchell Brothers, that letter is not “market speculation” it is fact you dimwitted bellends.

Today is Canadian Thanksgiving so if this podcast is late it is because Darren and other folks in the socialist hell hole are giving thanks to a God they do not believe in for not being American. Normally they all celebrate with roasted turkey but after a few years of President Castro-Trudeau many of them have been forced to become vegans under the latest Hate Crime laws or will be chasing their cats as Felix will be the main course on the only special feast which is now affordable. The screenshot below relates to Zamaz (ZAMZ) as I discuss its latest acquistion where the numbers just do not add up. I also look at Versarien (VRS), Chesterfield Resources (CHF), Argo Blockchain (ARB), asking if the ptoposed funding is for real, and I discuss a weekend chat with ‘arry Adams of Kefi Gold & Copper (KEFI).

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Snopes raises massive questions for KPMG, Nomad Peel Hunt, the idiots at AIM Regulation, the SNP et al

I refer to this amazing exposé by Snopes HERE into Max Polyakov, Ukraine’s Elon Musk. Why does it matter: I recall Cupid and the great establishment cover up.  Thjis is crime plain and simple and the board knew about it and covered it up. KPMG covered it up. The Nomad did nothing and so too did the Oxymorons at AIM Regulation. The SNP has been lobbying hard for Polyakov. They are all beneath contempt. Then I ask if share buying at Bluebird Merchant Ventures (BMV) is legit. It is. Then I discuss why a whistleblower may or may not have a story about another AIM company, look at Made.com (MADE), Sosandar (SOS), Tern (TERN) and Bidstack (BIDS): two placings , one a pea shooter, one possibly (but probably not) a bazooka.

Jaya and I did some due diligence at the coal face today and I explain why I may be buying if I can get hold of the great man tomorrow.  Then it is onto Wildcat Petroleum (WCAT) and the corruption of the deadwood press (the Sunday Times in this case) and finally a detailed look at Malcolm Stacey favourite Strix (KETL) where I have been a bear.  The shares are down 69% over the past 13 months and after today’s news I see an easy 30-40% more downside from here.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Yes! Carnival could be a zero

I start by rubbing more salt into the wounds of Chris Bailey as I look at just how screwed is Carnival (CCL). Then onto whether we are in a recession or not and how long it will last. In light of my conclusion I urge you to ignore Malcolm’s share tip tomorrow. Finally a thanks to a reader who stopped me poisoning my family last night with my self sufficiency.

Yesterday saw interims from Bezant (BZT) and Caerus  (CMRS). Has Colin Bird deceived us all? Have King of the spivs Jon Bellis and London’s worst nomad, Roland “fatty” Cornish signed off on a work of complete fiction? I think they have and that Bezant shares should be suspended ASAP and Bird’s career of penny share hustling broughtto an immediate close. All is  explained in today’s podcast.

I start with a question for you all ( except Nigel Wray and Nick Leslau): should the Mrs and I fix our mortage next April. Then onto Boohoo (BOO) and the timing of its next trading warning. For Boohoo also see Sosandar (SOS), etc, etc. Finally I wonder which academic will be brave enough to run an exercise correlating boardroom diversity with share price performance in 2022. You and I can work out what the result will be and also that there is no causal link but who will dare say it for exposes the boardroom diversity MUST be good line for the canard that it always has been.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: the awful forecasts and looming bankruptcy Bidstack is trying to hide

I start with the shameful behaviour of Bidstack (BIDS), a ramptastric RNS and an admission of new forecasts but not what they are. Guess what? They are shockingly bad, notwithstanding the ramptastic RNS, and admit that this company will be bankrupt by the first week of January unless it does a bailout placing. It took me an eternity to obtain the forecasts referenced in an RNS just about those very same numbers. Most morons have no idea how bad they are. I reveal all. I also cover Eve Sleep (EVE), Future (FUTR) and a £315 spoof at almost bankrupt Asimilar (ASLR).

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: An apology, Death Spiral vs Bucket shop, why cash is not the answer and windfall taxes on oilers

Sorry for the lack of material yesterday. It was Joshua’s birthday party.  Today I look at Chris and Malcolm’s thoughts on staying in cash on the perceived threat of a windfall tax on big oilers and at the death spiral versus bucket shop debate. I apologise for an error on Friday in this regard and FWIW I think that in some cases death spirals are far better news than bucket shop placings and I explain why.

But it was shocking. Away from that I discuss Made.com (MADE), Toople (TOOP), Deepverge (DVRG), Audioboom (BOOM) and Bidstack (BIDS) and what those in the private chatrooms do not understand.

Tom Winnifrith postcard: The 23 September UK Budget: Economic illiteracy, utterly inequitable and unfair and NOT what Mrs Thatcher would have done

In this podcast, I reflect on the Kwasi Kwarteng, Liz Truss mini budget. I am amazed and how badly the right wing commentariat has called it for it was mean and unjust and economically illiterate. It is not what Mrs Thatcher would have done and was a betrayal of her brand of conservatism and of the poor, working and middle classes too. It was just awful at every level and should form the basis of an electoral rout for the Tories in two years which will be fully deserved.

Sometimes a share price flags up that something is awry. In the case of Nightcap (NGHT) the bars chain, dripping in red flags with some of the worst corporate governance on the AIM sewer, run by Dragon Sarah Willingham and her husband Michael Toxic, I think that is the case. So La Willingham when are you going to ‘fess up?

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.

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.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast - in smearing Richard Jennings as a racist via the Mail on Sunday, Ironveld exposes how it broke AIM Rules 10 & 11 and why its bosses should be fired & sanctioned

Today’s Mail on Sunday carries a nasty hit job on Richard Jennings of Align accusing him of racism. You can read it HERE. The story is clearly manufactured by Ironveld Resources (IRON). I do not know enough SA slang to comment on Jennings’ words. However, amazingly the dickhead journalist not only failed to report matters showing Jennings as a supporter of poor blacks in Zim South despite having the evidence, but the whatsapp messages referred to show Ironveld driving a coach and horses through AIM Rule 11 and AIM Rule 10 so misleading its investors. I explain why that may have enabled some smart money to get out at the wrong prioe and why this should be enough to see Martin Eales and Giles Clarke fired at once. Unlike the wretched Mail I bring you the full whatsapp thread.

Then it is onto Canadian Overseas Petroleum (COPL) where – goaded by a trolling and abusive shareholder – I remind you why the shares will be sub 10p by Christmas and could well then head rapidly towards zero. Then back to Zak Mir and Lift Ventures (LFT), where I serve up a scenario where the initial Miriad deal was illegal and the cover-up needs exposing, something Aquis Regulation could do at ease. Of course if the NEDS and adviser Optiva are smart and, if my theory is correct, they will resign and whistleblow now as IF the initial deal was illegal and that is now being covered up they do not want to be implicated if things get messy.

 I start with AMTD Digital, run by a man banned from operating in Hong Kong, whose US listed shares have zoomed  ahead by 14,000% since its IPO a few weeks ago. It is now valued at more than Goldman Sachs. This is insanity writ large but it is risky betting against insanity. Then it is onto the stench of the Betahny Garner affair, Cellular Goods (CBX), Kanabo (KNB) and Oxford Cannabinoid (OCTP) where i discuss other clear signs that a bailout placing is being lined up. Then it is onto Online Blockchain (OBC) and the threat ADVFN (AFN) should be making against it. Finally I discuss La Willingham’s Nightcap (NGHT), its trading statement and the cash crisis looming this Autumn.

Tom Winnifrith bearcast: is journalist Bethany Garner of Forbes bent or just incredibly stupid?

I start with Kanabo (KNB), Oxford Cannibanoid (OTCP) and Cellular Goods (CBX). Who on earth would write them up as the three pot stocks to buy. They are all utter dogs facing looming cash crises. Meet Bethany Garner. I then discuss Victoria (VCP) after this bombshell. Then  Gary’s death wish, not as a Euroloon, but in considering buying Revolution Beauty (REVB). Then Ariana (AAU) and why its shares continue to drift.  I start with news of a last minute cancellation here in Greece. If you fancy a last minute luxury break drop me an email. Anyhow it means a more leisurely drive back for me starting, I think, on Monday.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast - life in the old dog yet!

I shall post photos in the next day or so showing me climbing a rocky and overgrown hill to a castle in the burning midday sun with my daughter Jaya on my back. I did the same three years ago with Joshua but managed better today. There is still life in this old dog. Then onto GSK (GSK) and Haleon (HLN). I ditched my Haleon shares today and explain why. Then I look at Revolution Beauty (REVB), ProCook (PROC), the fraud Supply@ME Capital (SYME), Cellular Goods (CBX) and in detail at Purplebricks (PURP).

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Is Sarah Willingham delusional?

I start with a defence of the privatised water companies on leakage but then discuss their debts and the debts of others, consumers and corporates and how they will cope over the coming year as base rates go from 1.25% to 3.25%. Then I look at La Willingham’s Nightcap (NGHT) and what it is NOT saying as it opens another bar for posh a’hole Oxbridge rejects at Bristol University. Then onto Procook (PROC) and Wildcat Petroleum (WCAT).

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: sexual harassment, expense abuse and a disastrous IPO

I am today alone at the Greek Hovel, for reasons I explain. Walking up and down snake hill, I must have sweated off 15 lbs! In the podcast, I start with a look at Boohoo (BOO), ASOS (ASC) and the issue of earnings visibility, as business models are forced to change. On my return, I spoke to a whistleblower from a 2021 IPO roll-call-of-shame company; I relay some of the specific accusations made. I’m not sure when to name the company, and how I should play it. But I will do so when back in the UK. The said accusations compound a dire financial position, about which I have warned you numerous times.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Flip Flop, Ben Turney, & Dan Levi go to war again

I have no skin in this game, though I wouldn’t wish to own shares in Flip Flop’s Kavango Resources (KAV). However, as the two men go to war, it is time to grab some beer and popcorn and enjoy from the sidelines. Then, I look at Asimilar’s (ASLR) cash crisis, and Red Rock Resources (RRR) where, despite Andrew Bell pulling his usual trick, I hang on. Finally, I take a detailed look at Ince Group (INCE), where I am now 90% vindicated, with the shares crashing to c. 5p. I await an apology from its PR man, who suggested that, at 52p just before Christmas, I was wrong to be such a bear. To watch my next hat eating, go HERE.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: 2 spoofs and a dog's dinner at Parsley Box

I start with the business, the spoofs at shamed Union Jack Oil (UJO) and Hydrogen Utopia (HUI), where the Aquis DOM of the year is yanking your chain.  Then, onto today’s appalling trading statement from Parsley Box (MEAL). I run you through the implied maths, rather than its adjusted EBITDA and other fantasies, demonstrating why by this time next year, it will have gone bust.  It is a zero, however much the bird in charge protests otherwise. Target price 0p by July 2023.

I start with the trials of ordering portable loos for ShareStock which I have now done. More than 40% of the seats are now taken so with 7 weeks to go please book yours HERE. Then onto how Barclays (BARC) may strand me in Greece and why the Mrs reckons I am wrong on how gay is your stockbroker.

Then it is onto Julie Meyer and why she is so wrong about the economic prospects of her latest bolt hole, Greece. It is doomed.  Then onto delusion among shareholders in the fraud Supply@ME Capital (SYME).

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Canadian Overseas Petroleum - absolutely desperate debt facility is NOT what was promised

Anyone who invests in a company run by serial value destroyer Arthur Milholland is asking for it. After deceiving investors ahead of its last placing, his latest vehicle for self enrichment, Canadian Overses Petroleum (COPL) has today served up a new debt structure which is so utterly horrible it tells you just how badly Milholland and Canadian are perceived. I discuss this, the shambles at Mirriad (MIRI), Eden Research (EDEN) and at cash strapped Asimilar (ASLR).

Tom Winnifrith Bonus Bearcast: My own thoughts on Pires Investments and Tern, the marriage that failed

I am after all an expert on divorces and failed marriages. But this one failed even before the two made it to the altar as Pires Investments (PIRI) shareholders rejected an all share merger with TERN (TERN) I salute them. I look at why this deal failed, the logic behind it for Tern (TERN), viz an escape. The logic for Pires – arguably the right strategy but the wrong target – and where both go from here. I make Pires an offer it should accept if it is to consider any more M&A activity.

Then dividends, ADVFN (AFN) and Royal Mail Group (RMG). Then Morses Club (MCL) and Optibiotix (OPTI). And I admit to being bored with gold. What does that tell you as I am a real gold bull?

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Pineapple Power is a total fecking disgrace & one for fruitcakes only

In today’s Bearcast I reflect on why it is important to report Eight Capital Partners (ECP) but, more importantly PKF Littlejohn, to the FRC as I have done today. I look at why I don’t look at Direct Line Insurance (DLG), then consider Tortilla Mexican Grill (MEX) but in the same vein Fevertree (FEVR), Cineworld (CINE), Music Magpie (MMAG) and Parsley Box (MEAL). Then I look at Anglesey Mining (AYM) with a hisory lesson stretching back to 4000 BC and words of warning to suckers who may fancy a dabble. Then it is onto the disgrace that is Pineapple Power (PNPL) and all the rogues associated with this shocking promote.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: what should I say to new ADVFN supremo Yair Tauman next week?

The Mrs arrives in a few hours so I record early so that Joshua and I can tidy up the hovel and car in order to ensure a harmonius reunion. I am sure all men know how I feel when your other half has spent a few daysd away from home allowing you to make the sort of mess only men can make. In the week coming up I shall be chatting to Yair Tauman the new supreme ruler of ADVFN (AFN) about various matters but mainly about how the sewer that is the ADVFN Bulletin Board can be improved. I share my views with you, noting some recent extraordinary market abuse on the Optibiotix (OPTI) thread, but also invite you to post your views in the comments section below and, as long as they make sense, I shall relay them to Yair.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: falling for a £49 covid test scam

Yes I fell for this scam sponsiored by the British and French Governments ands I mention this in the context of folks getting, wrongly, excited by news today from Novacyt (NCYT). Make no mistake: the covid testing bubble is over. I discuss Fevertree (FEVR) where I predict two more profits warnings – stay short. And then on the vicious attack on Richard Jennings by Ironveld (IRON). Jennings is a litigious fellow so may well be talking to his lawyer. I wouldn’t bother myself but cant think that Ironveld’s board is doing itself any favours with such antics.

Tom Winnifrith Photo Bearcast: the most stressful 30 minutes I can remember & the 2 French Lesbians on the ferry

Below, you can see two photos of the Greek Hovel, where I have now arrived. Gosh, it is wonderful here. I describe my trip, starting in Wrexham at 12:00 on Monday, and ending at 3 PM GMT today. There was a great deal of anxiety involved, including the most stressful half an hour i can remember at a toll booth near Aix. Then, there were the pretty young lesbians snuggled up on the sofa next to us, as we took the ferry from Bari. Then, it is onto IQE (IQE), MGC Pharmaceuticals (MXC) and Optibiotix (OPTI). Now for a swim; normal service resumes tomorrow.

I comment on life in Bethune, before looking at Pure Gold (PURE) and the justifiable indignation of Richard Jennings. Finally, I discuss Sosandar (SOS). Today’s historic results may justify an extra gallon of breakfast Prosecco for one well known share blogger, but what about the future?

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast – Back at 3.30 AM from the Northern Ireland game

I share a few thoughts with you – truths one cannot say in public – about the game last night. Notwithstanding that, I enjoyed the match, and the Northern Ireland girls held their heads up. Then, I discuss Canadian Overseas Petroleum (COPL), explaining my Christmas sub-10p target – the shares really will halve from here. I look at Shield Therapeutics (STX), MGC Pharmaceuticals (MXC), and Science in Sport (SIS) which, at every level, looks a stinker – even after today’s 22% fall, the shares are grotesquely overvalued. I explain why. Finally, I describe why Malcolm should have learned from IQE (IQE) before continuing to tip Zoo Digital (ZOO) - as he has again done, today.

So, my output may be limited until then. Today, I discuss the read across from Cellular Goods (CBX), and why news from Hydrogen Utopia (HUI) reinforces what a monumental slam-dunk sell Powerhouse Energy (PHE) is.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Will Lucian Miers survive Thursday Night?

As a Scottish Catholic, Lucian Miers will support Norway this Thursday. I think this is unwise, as we are sitting amongst the Northern Ireland supporters. I’ll have to explain to fellow members of the GAWA that Lucian is a Fenian, hence his sudden love-in with the land of Quisling. On shares, I look at Edenville Energy (EDL) and its new board member, Paul Ryan (remember him?). Then, I discuss Central Copper Resources, Cineworld (CINE), and Purplebricks (PURP), which, ceteris paribus, will go bust in a year.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: the spiral of death when stakeholders smell a cash crisis – ref AO World

I start with explosions here at the Hovel in Wales and how Bearcast listener G cannot assist. Talking of explosions I comment on IRA loving cottage burners in a Welsh independence march I went on yesterday with the kids HERE. With hindsight I’d rather have attended the Pride March. Well maybe not. It is a marginal call. Then it is onto SPACs and the schoolboy error of Wildcat Petroleum (WCAT). Finally AO World (AO) which looks screwed. I describe how rational behaviour by four groups of stakeholders will ensure a cash struggling company goes down.]

I apologise for ShareProphets’s lack of Pride celebrations, unlike the big corporates. Next year. Or maybe not. Then, it is on to my argument with Steve O’Hara at Optibiotix (OPTI). I do not regret buying more shares, but I am, nevertheless, cross. I explain this, before looking at Dev Clever (DEV) and something very fishy indeed. After that, I discuss Ben’s Creek (BEN), the Adam Wilson CV and why this will all end in tears. Finally, an IPO: Alteration Earth (ALTE), and why you should avoid it like the plague.

Their xenophobia was matched only by their economic illiteracy, as we were graced with a video message from blood-soaked IRA Sinn Fein. Those at the March have passion on their side, but few fact-based arguments – however much they pretend otherwise. The march, and my two Welsh kids, are pictured below. (For the record, I still want Welsh independence).

Then it is onto Oxford Biodynamics (OBD) and Shield Therapeutics (STX) – will its placing be at 5p or not at all?.  Then onto Pennon (PNN), sewage and Feargal Sharkey. Finally Abingdon Diagnostics (ABDX) where good news today has seen the shares rocket but that only postpones the next bailout placing ( or death) until Advent.

Tom Winnifrith Postcard: The stench of lies - the war in Ukraine is not in my name

First off, I am not a Putin apologist. That I must stress this, is a sign of the Group Think at play. I walk through the rewriting of history from World War Two to 2014, addressing the catalogue of lies we are fed by the political and media classes. It is not in my name. We must all consider the facts, and stand up to this – just as we should all have done during the Covid Group Think. Those of us who did challenge that Group Think, were told we had blood on our hands. We are now vindicated - it is the Group Think leaders who should be in jail.  Before you slate me on Ukraine, listen to this podcast and consider the facts I present, not the lies you are being told.

Last year, AIM sewer poster boy,  Deepverge (DVRG), did a placing at 30p. It had misled investors on trading, and its ghastly CEO, Gerry “the arse” Brandon, slated me as not understanding investment. Today, the shares are 10.5p, after awful finals in which, as I explain in this bonus podcast, the company again – by omission rather than act – materially misleads investors. If you own this stock, lube up; there is more pain coming your way.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: happy anniversary, Forward Partners. Not! And so much pride in Joshua ahead of sports day

He might come home with a raft of certificates for “Welsh speaker of the week”, or other such academic achievements, but Joshua is no great sportsman. Yet this afternoon, it is the school sports day, and the whole family is off to watch him. Discussing what lies ahead with him as we walked to school this morning, filled me with pride. In the main podcast, I look at Forward Partners (FWD) – another disastrous 2021 IPO; Petropavlovsk (POG), as it races to zero; Genflow Biosciences (GENF); MGC Pharmaceuticals (MXC) – placing ahoy; and Verditek (VDTK), where things could get very messy within days. Ref MXC, I discuss two historic examples of biotech’s presenting data – on AIDS “cures”, and its spoof ramp last week.

In the main podcast, I discuss discretionary consumer spending; Parsley Box (MEAL); ProCook (PROC); Altyn Gold (ALTN); Optibiotix (OPTI) and a chat with Steve O’Hara, who, of course, you can meet HERE; and AEX Gold (AEXG).

I warned explicitly about ProCook BEFORE its IPO Last November; now, a dire warning as shares collapse

The big institutions all barreled in to ProCook (PROC), since they knew better than Old Tom Winnifrith, despite his explicit warnings why this would end in tears. So, too, did Primary Bid, which was a keen supporter – as was our own Malcolm Stacey. What was he thinking?  But, just seven months after the IPO comes a disastrous profits warning, and the shares have collapsed.  While Malcolm drowns his sorrows with an extra pint of Old Mother’ Green’s organic ale, it is ouzo time at the Welsh Hovel. But do the founding O’Neill family, who flogged tens of millions worth of shares to dumb IIs, really care?

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: with a hat tip to reader, Jim, on the Isle of Man

Given it is hammering down here in North Wales, I bet Mr Mellon is somewhere far sunnier than Port Erin. The graphic below is from him, and I discuss it in detail. Then, I look at those determined to ignore clear warnings, ref Petropavlovsk (POG). I cover incomplete and thus, potentially deceptive, RNS statements ref. Nostra Terra Oil & Gas (NTOG), before assessing Fulham Shore (FUL) in detail. With gift aid, we have now raised £19,700 for Rogue Bloggers for Woodlarks - please help us reach the £20,000 landmark today (D-3 days), HERE. Finally, my podcast on falling out with Dominic Frisby, 1939 and all that can be accessed, HERE.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Time to double up on the Shield Therapeutics final collapse, the money's almost all gone!

On 18 February, at 25.5p to sell, the big bear call was greeted with abuse from BB savants, who, unsurprisingly, always know better.  Shares in Shield (STX) are now 14.6p, and the final collapse to c. 5p is now set to begin. Double up on your shorts.  In this podcast, I discuss Argo Blockchain (ARB); Nostra Terra Oil & Gas (NTOG) and its unsavoury CEO, Matt Lofgran – praise be the Lord; then, I look at Genflow Biosciences (GENF), as its shares continue to tank; Challenger Energy (CHAL); Eurasia Mining (EUA); and Petropavlovsk (POG), where the target remains 0p.  Finally, I remind you that Rogue Bloggers for Woodlarks is just 4 days away, and we are at 34% of the target. If among the 92% of listeners yet to donate, do give a fiver (or a tenner), HERE.

It is just five days to Rogue Bloggers for Woodlarks and we are at just under 33% of our target so can the 93% of listeners yet to donate please do so HERE. In today’s podcast I cover the quarter of a billion quid blown, largely by Neil Woodford, at Rutherford (RUTH) and how that made Woodford,personally, even richer. I name and shame a couple of those who enabled that scam.  I look at Wildcat Petroleum (WCAT), Guild ESports (GILD) and Cellular Goods (CBX) and the piss poor Times’ idea of breaking news, I mention Optibiotix (OPTI),look at Eve (EVE) which seems to be a zero to me, at spineless and busted Cineworld (CINE) and in detail at ADVFN (AFN) and its woes.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: why aren't the shares suspended?

Recovering from several lectures on the evils of Brexit, I send you greetings from Frogland this Bank Holiday Thursday. In today’s podcast, I look again at the Tern (TERN) – Pires (PIRI) merger. I then discuss three slam-dunk zeros: Kinovo (KINO) – whose shares should be suspended with immediate effect – Versarien (VRS) and Nanosynth (NNN), where the new CEO, Mark Duffin, is a complete clown. If he does a deal in snails, as he suggests, I am a Dutchman.

Then harvest it again and the government can give more money to everyone to help them deal with inflation. It is so simple. I just can’t see why Uncle Tom and other wicked Tories just don’t get it.

Go on, just a tenner for Rogue Bloggers for Woodlarks, you know it makes sense. Please donate HERE. In today’s podcast I discuss Vin Murria and M&C Saatchi (SAA), the scoundrels at Ince (INCE) and Deepverge (DVRG), Vast Resources (VAST), Audioboom (BOOM) and then I take a very detailed look at Tortilla Mexican Grill (MEX) as it buys Chilango. This looks all wrong and another membr of the 2021 IPO hall of shame.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast - who'd have guessed that David Beckham was not a stock picker?

As you grow old, you should learn from investing. In that vein, I discuss my 1997 encounters with Adonis Pouroulis of Chariot Oil & Gas (CHAR), and why I’d not touch Chariot with a bargepole. I also discuss investing in a bear market, what we should do and the irrational decisions others will make, looking at AAA, Asimilar (ASLR) and Audioboom (BOOM). I then examine Guild ESports (GILD), and what I believe is an upcoming placing at 1p. That will also kick Cellular Goods (CBX) in the golden balls. Finally, I discuss renting out the Greek Hovel, as you can see HERE, and urge the 95% of listeners yet to donate to Rogue Bloggers for Woodlarks, to do so HERE.

Last time, the complainant was anonymous; this time, it was Julie Meyer. I describe my chat. Suffice to say that Ms “sex toy on expenses” Meyer will again be frustrated. I contrast these Police visits with the way they failed me when I exposed the Chill Brands (CHLL) fraud, and was then harassed and smeared – I wonder how the guilty men, notably those at Buchanan Communications, feel this afternoon. Today, I deserve a shed load of ouzo after numerous triumphs and, in turn, I look at Chill, Supply@ME Capital (SYME), Bidstack (BIDS) and Vast Resources (VAST). Actually, I am joking about the ouzo: the kids and I are off to buy a hosepipe extension, some lavender plants, and an ice cream for Joshua. That is our reward.

Then onto Vast Resources (VAST) and Eden Research (EDEN), not Pharma as I misspoke in the podcast. Finally, Gear4Music (G4M), which is enough to turn fanboys Paul Scott and Malcolm Stacey to drink.  Vindicated yet again as a bear, I warn of worse to come, following today’s bullshit-heavy trading statement.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: You want me to be angry with 'arry fecking Adams of bloody Kefi? You will not be disappointed

In today’s Bearcast, I start with Guild ESports (GILD), and a collapsing party house of cards. I refer to the David Williams of Avanti infamy shocker - it is still a cracking short. Then I comment on Petropavlovsk (POG), where I am surprised no one has feigned offence at my earlier headline.  There is a bit on NightCap (NGHT), but most of this podcast covers Kefi Gold and Copper (KEFI). Matthew and his dog will be delighted by that section.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Canadian Overseas, vindicated again

This has been the most stressful day in Greece for a long while; I really do need a holiday. I explain all.  Then I look at Sensyne (SENS); Chill Brands (FRAUD); Blue Star Capital (BLU) and an AGM shock that may trigger the collapse of the Bixby, Edwards, Frangos, Story and Peter Wall house of cards. Then it is onto Canadian Overseas Petroleum (COPL), where today’s placing vindicates me. I argue that a 20.75p share price is a compelling shorting opportunity on a risk-reward basis. Matthew and his dog will enjoy that section, as Arthur Millholland, the snake oil salesman at Canadian, really is talking shite in today’s release. I am so angry.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast - all about THG

I have been bearish on this for a while, unable to understand the valuation from the IPO. Shares in THG, The Hut Group as was, now trade at a new low of 95p. There are a couple of matters to discuss ahead of numbers on Thursday, notably a management departure and suggestions of late payments to suppliers. Is this window dressing as per Canadian Overseas Petroleum (COPL) and its December 31 cash number, or something worse?

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Why regulators should be all over Canadian Overseas Petroleum & Vast Resources - 2 placings that stink

I start with Deliveroo (ROO), whose IPO was at 390p – a year later, the shares are at 106p. What went wrong, I ask, and what now for the shares? Then to two placings: Vast Resources (VAST) announced its placing on Monday; I discussed the one Canadian (COPL) has been working on since last Thursday, last night. It seems to be struggling, but I expect it will be announced by the company tomorrow. Both placings stink, and decent regulators would be all over them. I explain why.

I look at Canadian Overseas Petroleum (COPL) and at Bidstack (BIDS) as well as at Angus Energy (ANGS) and Sound Oil (SOU).

Canadian Overseas Petroleum Responds with hilarous & libellous smears about Tom Winnifrith and more deception of its sap investors

This is hilarious and libellous. What Canadian (COPL) has said about me in its RNS in response to THIS is untrue and defamatory as its limp dick advisors at morally bankrupt PR Yellow Jersey know full well. However it is what Canadian fails ( again) to say about itself that is critical. It is still deceiving its investors massively and thus the smart money will be using the spike it has created to add to their shorts.


Let’s start with the smear on me. Arthur Millholland (of Oilexco infamy) says

Not only are Optibiotix (OPTI) shares not flying (yet) but part two of my retirement plan has also been scuppered as I explain, by the imminent arrival of my in-laws to live in our annexe. I am busy preparing for that and also sorting out the garden ahead of a Greek trip, hence a late bearcast. In that, I discuss whether foolks really are paid to post rubbish on Bulletin Boards, why some companies set up a new holding company and at Carnival (CCL) and elsewhere why an obsession with E &S lets poor G ( shocking greed) take place.

I have today been disinvited from the Woodford TTF event, so if you paid £75 to hear me, ask for your money back. I’m sure the FT’s happy, and I discuss what you will NOT now hear. I also discuss today’s April Fool on ShareProphets - which some of you fell for! Finally, I look at 4D Pharma (DDDD); Verditek (VDTK) – is that the Fat Lady I see?; Eden Research (EDEN), and the issue its auditors will have; and musicMagpie (MMAG), with today’s share price lurch in mind.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: A night of shame for Mello Events, and Skinbiotherapeutics - I'm buying more

I start with Mello Events, which last night exposed itself as a PR promoter, failing to allow any questions about the elephant in the room: musicMagpie(MMAG).  Then to Optibiotix (OPTI) and Skinbiotherapeutics (SBTX), after today’s news from the latter. I have spoken to both Steve O’Hara and Stuart Ashman. As Les points out in the comments section, the silver lining for you is the postponement of my retirement – but not for long. The market has over-reacted: long-term, these two companies will subsidise the goat farm, as I explain in detail.

Yesterday all of you said i should sack him. But the sad old geezer has texted me today.I relay what he wrote and ask, in today’s edition of the Moral Maze, if I should still sack him? The answer I think you will give, bears direct relation to both musicMagpie (MMAG) and Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO) which I discuss. I also cover Petropavlovsk (POG), Amala Foods (DISH), Zak Mir, Richard “Nobody Likes me and I do not care” Jennings and Lift Ventures whose IPO seems not to be quite as “imminent” as Zak told us it was two months ago.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Surely Dignity has to refinance and it will not be pretty

I start by explaining why my next musicMagpie (MMAG) article was delayed until tomorrow. It is all to do with a Greek, a lorry and a shortage of bubblewrap in Wrexham. I draw your attention to a real share trading oddity at Magpie before heading on to  discuss whether Vast Resources (VAST) or Catenae (CTEA) will go bust first. Finally a detailed look at Dignity (DTY) where that combination of zero earnings visibility, past overcharging of punters and a wreck of a balance sheet spells even more gloom ahead.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: I start the expose of a new well known zero in waiting tomorrow but here are three to tuck into first

Forgive the voice. Last week’s cold has left me sounding like I have been swallowing gravel. I start with a few words about distractions today which included ordering 72 blackthorn plants and 12 wild blackberry bushes and fetching antique Welsh furniture to go to Greece. Then I ponder whether Nigel is reinvesting his Ariana (AAU) dividends in Ariana (AAU).I explain why I am not and where I am putting the cash. Or  rather I am sitting on the fence between Optibiotix (OPTI) and Skinbiotherapeutics (SBTX). The 3x company I mentioned on Saturday, is a well known one and will be exposed via a multi-part series kicking off tomorrow at 8.30 AM and it is, I am sure, a zero.  Ahead of then I discuss what makes a real bear market and how it affects rubbish stocks out of cash. Until you see  a good few RNS statements each month saying that “shares are suspended pending clarification” you are not in a bear market.  In that vein, I mention three POS companies which RIGHT NOW have no cash and are burning it: Vast Resources (VAST), Chill Brands (CHLL) and Supply@ME Capital (FRAUD) and I discuss the next steps for that trio and why the net is tightening on them.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: All about Optibiotix apart from a few comments on the most despicable MBE out there

I do comment about Julie Meyer’s latest tweet. Suicide is no joking matter and this act alone should see her lose her MBE. But most of this podcast is about events today at Optibiotix (OPTI) whose core businessis not worth MINUS £12 million as Mr Market implies. Ahead of the 24th March FYB! A pedant points out that at 14 mins in I say Optibiotix shareholders will get a distribution of 36-38%of Skinbiotherapeutics – clearly  meant Probiotix. Apologies – long covid strikes again.

You can now donate to the 2022 Rogue Bloggers walk on June 11 HERE. In today’s podcast I discuss Optibiotix (OPTI), a long chat with Steve O’Hara and an, in my view, mistaken, but for him massive, call by Lemming Investor.

Neither Nigel or Tulsi are but that won’t stop certain loons from saying they are. Then a bit more on dangerous fake news.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: I despise Roman Abramovitch but stealing his assets is just wrong & a bad precedent

Obviously I do hope Chelsea goes bust and is docked 500 points and finds itself playing next season in the National League so allowing two clubs to be promoted which might just include Wrexham. But what is happening to the Abramovitch sets a dangerous precedent. I discuss this with reference to Evraz  (EVR). I look at Parsley Box (MEAL) and the role of certain institutional investors and also FinnCrap (FCAP) in some detail. I predict Parsley will go bust by the autumn notwithstanding today’s dishonest bailout.  I look at Oxford Cannibinoid (OTCP) and the growing scandal there  and also comment on Eurasia (EUA), then at Chill Brands (CHLL) and that other Standard Listed fraud Supply@ME Capital (SYME). I discuss Summerway Capital (SWC) and Argo Blockchain (ARB) but I start with a parents dilemma.

One has fallen so far it is probably not a short now though I would not buy it while three look set to go to zero, possibly as soon as next week in one case. My 10 are Supply, Chill Brands, Versarien, Avacta (AVCT), Wildcat Petroleum (WCAT), Amigo (AMGO), Cineworld (CINE), Argo Blockchain (ARB), Verditek (VDTK) and Tern (TERN). I also look at the oil price and consider whether those sitting on gains might bank a few profits.

Tom Winnifrith Bonus Bearcast: Is this the smoking gun showing Chill Brands doing a $1m pig and pork fraud

With Chill Brands (CHLL) the only question is when the end game is played out. In this podcast I discuss the nature of fraud and suggest how it is possible that the company is a 100/100 fraud on the spectrum of crime becuase it may have committed a pig and pork type fraud for c£1 million. This podcast has gone to Mark Steward and his team at the FCA asking that it makes an urgent enquiry and if the answer is yes it is suspension and game over. If the FCA is as useless as ever the auditors will cry fowl in the summer and it is game over then.  But i am 99% sure that this is a pig and pork and I believe the smoking gun is there for all to see.

I comment specifically on the frauds Chill Brands (CHLL) and Supply@ME Capital (SYME) and on Ukranian hookers and fake news and also on Ten Lifestyle (TENG). And I discuss pen Orphan (ORPH) vs Braveheart (BRH), the saintly Cathal Friel vs the spiv chancer Trevor Brown. It is all to do with returning capital or not.

I discuss  the Europa (EOG) fund raise and what the real discount – not the pretend discount referred to in today’s misleading RNS – actually means for all small caps.  I look at the shock DotDigital (DOTD) warning and what that says about earnings visibiity generally and would I bottom fish that one stock?

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast - Who has been swimming with no trunks and Ukraine musings

I start with events in Ukraine and offer a few thoughts. But I also look at a few companies notably Eurasia Mining (EUA), Versarien (VRS), ADVFN (AFN)  – one of which is, I think, a buy – and also, en passant, the fraud that is Supply@ME Capital (SYME) and in the context of bitcoin tanking, Argo Blockchain (ARB).

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: When is FinnCrap's profits warning? And some good news for Julie Meyer

I start with Ms Lingerie on Expenses after the latest bombshell.  Then it is ADVFN (AFN), Union Jack (UJO) with its spoof from the Eurasia (EUA) playbook, Seraphine (BUMP), Peel Hunt (PEEL) and FinnCap (FCAP).

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: The Mrs is a"blackleg" - how very proud of her I am!

I start with a few thoughts on flooded fields then on where next for Julie “Lingerie on Expenses” Meyer after yesterday’s six months in jail (suspended pro tem) bombshell.I fear that things are very soon going to ge much worse for her.  Then onto Ukraine and panic, oil and gold. Then onto Hargreaves Lansdowne (HL) and finally as to why I am so proud of the Mrs which is,in a way, linked to Hargreaves.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Is Lonny Baumgardner of Predator stark raving Twitter bonkers?

I comment on the weather here in Wales and then start with those sort of folks who engage in utterly reckless behaviour they know will ruin them. I think of vicars or Tory MPs having unsafe sex with rent boys in the era of the News of the Screws or of Paul Smith the, now ex, CEO of Morses Club (MCL). I look at ADVFN (AFN) and ask if its shares are now cheap at 63p? Then it is onto UK Oil & Gas (UKOG), and to Predator Oil (PRD) where I smell a pre-placing ramp and where the COO is now tweeting like a lunatic.  Finally it is Guild ESports (GILD) and Cellular Goods (CBX).

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: How to play Ukraine and what to believe about what is happening? A detailed rebuttal of my Shield critics and THE crypto short

I start with some thoughts on Ukraine and Russia which some of you may disagree with. Perhaps what is happening there will be a handy excuse for Eurasia Mining (EUA) to ‘fess up to the lack of bid? Then onto how bitcoin and other cryptos are faring as a safe haven right now. And why that makes Argo Blockchain (ARB) such a monumental sell. It could utterly implode. I see that more than 25% of posts on the ADVFN Bulletn Board,a few hours ago,were on Shield Therapeutics (STX) with nearly all of them slating me for all the usual reasons. I do not play the man here even though my critics do seem to have the collective IQ of a Cheese sandwich, but the ball and answer each of the bull points made to rebut my bear thesis in turn.

If this podcast arrives too late they did not.  All is explained in the actual recording brought to you frmthe land of the bedwetters, Wales, as there is abit of wind and rain. In the Bearcast I look at Shield Therapeutics (STX) – a stand out short where the share price collapse is only just starting – UK Oil & Gas (UKOG), Oxford Cannabinoid (OCTP) and the fraud Supply@ME Capital (SYME).

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast - Accepting the resignation of Peter Brailey as there is a line in the sand

I want to be 100% transparent with you so I explain why, as of 8 AM today, Peter is no longer a member of this parish after apologising for yesterday’s poor sound quality for which there was a good reason. I look at two shocking economic statistics and what they mean. I then cover: SkinBiotherapeutics (SBTX), Bluebird Merchant Ventures (BMV),  AEX Gold (AEXG), Novacyt (NCYT), Avacta (AVCT) and Cake Box (CBOX).

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Just how do market makers work and set prices

I am asked this question by a long suffering reader in relation to Skinbiotherapeutics (SBTX) and do my best to answer. I look at IQE (IQE),the curious share dealing of Mr Drew Nelson and whether I’d be tempted. I still see no sign of the IPO of Zak Mir’s crazy media investment company which he said was imminent two weeks ago. Is it Lift off?  I comment on Bluebird Merchant Ventures (BMV)  and then have a detailed look at Sarah Willingham’s Nightcap (NGHT) in light of today’s expose. It really is a one way bet.Down.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: the greed of Piggy Austin is just not acceptable

I start with a few thoughts on a visit this morning to the post industrial wastelands of Salford. Gosh it was grim.  Then a schoolboy error on Skinbiotherapeutics (SBTX) but it only makes the case  for filling your boots stronger. No, I have not got a scooby about why Bluebird (BMV) shares are up but I speculated and put together a few pieces of the jigsaw.  I look at W Resources (WRES) but would not touch it with a bargepole and then discuss the wholly unacceptable greed of Andrew “piggy” Austin at Kistos (KIST)

Tom Winnifrith Bonus Bearcast - why I think Skinbiotherapeutics is a 10 bagger (or more) from here

As you know I am reviewing my pension as discussed HERE. As such I am chatting to various CEOs who I have backed and yesterday evening I had a long chat with Stuart Ashman of Skinbiotherapeutics (SBTX). He is not a bluffing promoter but, I believe, a sober and grounded chap. I came away from the call just incredibly excited. I explain why the share price is where it is but also why this could within a couple of years be a 10 bagger but it could equally be a 20 bagger. Certainly any free cash within my SIPP will, even at twice today’s price be going into this stock. And if I am right there is a clear implication for Optibiotix (OPTI) so I am not selling any shares in it either.  Footnote/correction. There are not 2 million psoriasis sufferers worldwide as per podcast but 120 million. I can’t say that weakens the case!

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Ok I sacked him! And my pension reviewed with a new purchase

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: WW3, Inflation and Tern vs Omega, similar deceit in the portfolio of death

I comment on a kind post one of you made on the LSE Asylum. In today’s Poirot on Channel 10 he had tired of fighting crime in the City and retired to tend his garden. I know how he feels. I discuss events in Ukraine, inflation and how it those who dismiss the damage it causes, Comrade Stacey, are wrong. Then I look at a BB portfolio of death, something for tomorrow’s bearcast. Two stocks which were both in it are Omega (ODX) and Tern (TERN). After last week’s collapse Omega may now be out – though I certainly would not buy. I discuss the common trait of how both mislead investors. I discuss how all folks should own some oil, a point I have made before, naming the 2 oil stocks I own.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Beware the blizzard of confetti on its way to you from Anglesey

I mention briefly events at Omega Diagnostics (ODX) but that is covered largely in a seperate bearcast HERE. Then it is onto the new big covid test short Avacta (AVCT) and why our own esteemed PL is talking cock. I cover Anglesey Mining (AYM) and what its news today really means. Then a long look at Osirum (OSI). Obviously it is a worthless POS but what does its deeply discounted placing today mean for YOUR portfolio?

A man who blocked Tom Winnifrith because he knew more about Omega Diagnostics and shares can't fess his gargantuan losses to his wife

The chap below blocked me on Twitter as I did not know what I was talking about when it came to Omega Diagnostics (ODX). He did, of course, and now he has lost so much money he cannot bring himself to ‘fess up to his Mrs that he has trashed the family finances. I do actually feel sorry for him though no doubt he has said a lot of beastly things about me. It will be of no consolation to him when folks, the sort of Omega owning folks who egged on his enthusiasm, say things will get better or he can learn from this. Things may improve for Omega and I hope he learns but right now he must feel pretty rotten. The biggest lesson, of course, is never to put all your eggs in one basket. Perhaps a second one is that, on bear calls, whatever you read on Bulletin Boards,I am almost always right.

A free to access podcast from Tom Winnifrith for shareholders in Omega Diagnostics

I guess you are all feeling a bit shafted right now and are wondering who to blame and what to do next after today’s debacle. Contrary to what you might read on certain Bulletin Boards I do not celebrate the pain of most Omega Diagnostics (ODX) shareholders, just those who abused and insulted my 100% accurate warnings of the bailout placing and other matters. For those chumps, it is schadenfreude all round. So what should you, as an Omega shareholder, do now? I answer that question and them discuss the legality of my reporting and indeed the morality of the reporting plus I explain exactly who shareholders should be angry with on a number of matters and why. Enjoy.  My regular daily podcast, behind the paywall, will go live later today. If you are not yet a ShareProphets subscriber and do not want to get caught out again as you have been today, you can rectify that HERE

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Omega confirms my scoop (again) but now I reveal what it is NOT telling you

Firstly I discuss how Omega Diagnostics (ODX) mislead folks on 19 January about the lack of a placing. The slippery words of PR shithead Paul “Queenie” McManus of Walbrook saw folks pay 15p per share. Today Omega confirmed my latest scoop, yes it has raised £5 million and will do an open offer for another £2million at just 5p. But Queenie says this is dependent on another corporate action. In the podcast I reveal exactly what that action is since the PR shithead won’t. There is a brief discussion about poor Prince Charles and the total bursting of the Covid stocks bubble. Then onto the shocking corporate governance and executive greed at Nanosynth (NNN). It is dressed up as aligning executive interests with those of mug punters owning this grotesquely overvalued stock.  It is nothing of the sort. The shares should fall by 90%.  Former chairman Antony Legge would NEVER have allowed this. How standards have slipped.

Not, I stress, to Darren. I fired him yesterday as I have done about once a week for nine years. But to someone working at the Welsh Hovel. I explain what he does and ask if I should fire him. Answers in the comments section below. My sense is yes and that his behavioiur is down to massive scale money printing and what comes with it. After that I consider the SEC investigation into the bear community then answer your emails on Kefi (KEFI) and what is happening in Ethiopia this very day. Then I look at Bidstack (BIDS) in some detail and finally at Argo Blockchain (ARB).

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Britain's worst newspaper (the Mail) misses the point on Britain's worst auditor (KPMG) & what would Jesus say about Rio Tinto?

Then onto the Methodists and why its stance on Rio Tinto (RIO) is, I suggest, not what Jesus would have advocated.  Moreover it highlights how ESG driven investing has created valuation anomalies on both the long and short side. Finally, THG (THG) and PE bid speculation.

What sort of institutional retard  backed this IPO?

If folks want to be Good Germans they can be but I cannot be arsed with such poltroons.  Then I look at Cineworld (CINE) prompted by this news from Ealing as well as my earlier piece HERE. My only question is whether my target is 0p or 2p.  Then SpaceandPeople (SAL) and words on overdrafts. That also applies to Omega Diagnostics (ODX) which I cover. Then today’s warning from the Bank of England is discussed and its importance and grim implications. Finally my chat with Steve O’Hara, forecasts for Optibotix (OPTI) and where the shares will be in three years.

Then onto Amigo (AMGO) where – with the shares surging – it is surely ‘a mega’ short. Then it is onto regulatory and ethical failure at Braveheart (BRH) and Chamberlin (CMH), the common links being the scumbag Trevor Brown and the scallywags at Peterhouse Capital. Then on to more regulatory failure at Chill Brands (FRAUD) before I take along look at UK SPAC (SPC) and all who sail in her.

Then I move onto news that the FCA staff are balloting on strike action over plans to scarp their bonuses. Then to lessons learned from the Novacyt (NCYT) scandal – where I did warn you! The chief lesson is that poor corporate governance often goes hand in hand with poor share price performance. I discuss ADVFN (AFN) in this vein.

Optibiotix (OPTI), Eurasia Mining (EUA), Doc Martens (DOCS) and Challenger Energy (CEG). I said I’d mention madness incarnate but forgot to.My reference ws to Wildcat Petroleum (WCAT) , up 28% today at 2.7p valuing a company with sub £200,000 cash and no assets at all at £65 million.

I discuss what Trustpilot says about the company HERE and Lucian’s road trip to do more due diligence. Re Lucian I also discuss other big blowups that will happen this year and bitcoin. Then there is Amigo (AMGO), Chill Brands (TOAST), MyHealthchecked (MHC), Novacyt (NYCT) and Argo Blockchain (ARB) in light of today’s NFT nonsense but also the collapsing bitcoin price.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast - Cake Box is NOT another Patisserie Holdings but it looks a stonking red flag & macro short

I start with a few words on Oxford Cannabinoid (OCTP).I have not said fill your boots nor should you. The issue here is management allegedly lining their own pockets ahead of corporate action which they know all about. One should not buy shares in such companies. Then I reflect on an excellent piece by Maynard Paton on Cake Box (CBOX) which you can read HERE. I comment on some of the excellent points he makes but add in half a dozen of my own, notably comparing boasted net cash and net interest costs but also the shameful CEO pump and dump and the macro headwind given the demographic of its end user base. This is probably not another Patisserie Valerie but at 320p it is a stonking short.

Then, sorry Gary, back to Advance Energy (ADV) and its history with this fine website as Andalas and as CEB Resources, the pumpers (Zak Mir, flip flop Ben Turney, and Justin the Clown), the villains (Dave Whitby) and the lessons.

As a loyal shareholder this is another kick in the gonads for me and I urge Steve O’Hara to sack three of the four of them and replace them with one new, less greedy, individual. Actually I’d go for all four booting out chairman Neil Davidson as well.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast - Lucian getting hammered by Cineworld et al - does he deserve it?

I start with a few comments on my life as a tree hugging, green, feminist and the issues that presents. Then I comment on Wildcat (WCAT) and its smearing of me in a bonkers statement. I then comment on Versarien (VRS), the Ian Westbrook case and what will cause a share price collapse this year. Then it is on to Cineworld (CINE), the Restaurant Group (RTN) and easyjet (EZJ), three end of covid plays and why they are not all the same. Finally I look at Nostra Terra Oil & Gas (NTOG) and the latest statement served up by its devoutly Christian boss and why I am not buying into it.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Welsh school teachers are a total fecking disgrace

Will Joshua ever make it back to school? There appear to be suggestions that Wales’s bone idle teachers will postpone his education in why white privilege makes him an automatic victim by yet another day. In the podcast I discuss why Cliff Weight is wrong about share options, the Chill Brands (CHLL) spoof and then took a detailed look at AIM China play Univison Limited (UVEL) which looks tome to be a zero. Have you looked at what this loss making indebted POS spunked £949,000 on during the first half?  In signing off on interims,Nomad Spark Advisory is ‘avin’ a bubble.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast - is this peak Beckham a market top signal?

I start with a discussion of why I have very wet feet. It was, a schoolboy error according to Joshua. Pictures explaining why can be found here. Then to some corrupt journalism in the Mail on Sunday and why it makes me more bearish on The Hut Group (THG) and a story about David Beckham cashing in which looks to me to be another top of the market signal.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast - the fallacy of green bitcoin and the bad things hidden in ESG wrappers

I start with a couple of points of economics, covering disincentives to work for low paid folk, especially if divorced dads and also the epidemic sweeping the nation, the public sector variant. I flagged this up to Bath Spa students a few years ago, it is still true.  Then, tying in to my 4th tip of the year out today, I move onto bitcoin and also the smokescreen, being seen as ESG friendly provides but why it will unravel as the market gets nervous this year.

I hope you have a Happy New Year’s Eve.  I aim to be in bed by 8 PM. Bah Humbug. Intoday’s podcast I look at URU Metals (URU), Lansdowne Oil & Gas (LOGP), Path Investments (PATH), Kore Potash (K2P) and the fraud Supply@ME Capital (SYME) and today’s red flag dripping trading statement. I also explain why I expect the oilprice to go higher over the coming year.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: The SEC, Medallion Financial and the read across for the scammers & promoters of the Standard List and AIM

I discuss the arrests made on 29 December in the USA and why the FCA should look at some of the activities of folks in the UK small cap world. Case studies include Eurasia Mining (EUA) and Chill Brands (CHLL). I then move on to Supply@ME Capital (SYME) and its news today, Wildcat Petroleum (WCAT) and also Verditek (VDTK), which I reckon is a zero for 2022 but since it can’t be shorted is not one of my tips of the year. To JP, sorry I have no idea why Peel Hunt quit as broker to Bushveld (BMN) but I suspect it gave three months notice. Leaving SP Angel as sole broker can’t be seen as good news. It is like firing our beloved West Ham as joint broker to retain the sole services of Chesterfield Town.

Tom Winnifrith Christmas Eve Bearcast - no rest for those exposing the wicked

I end with a seasonal message of goodwill to all men. I start with a detailed demolition of Versarien (VRS), Deepmatter (DMTR) whose placing statement is a disgrace and finally of Love Hemp (LIFE) an Aquis dog from Peterhouse Capital where, after today, there are more red flags flying than on May Day in Moscow. It is a shocker. I also have somewhat implausible news about Central Copper Resources.

Then I consider Tern (TERN), PCF Group (PCF) and the fraud Supply@ME Capital (SYME) and I urge you to enter Nigel’s sweepstake HERE before midnight.

My anger at the hypocrisy of those who rule us is mounting as I prepare for our first full family meet up since the funeral. After a rant on that count which will have Matthew’s dog in delirious joy I move onto Parsley Box (MEAL) where things are even worse than the trading statement suggests, Good Energy (GOOD) whose profits warning would have delighted Uncle Christopher Booker, the wrong sort of wind FFS, and Bens Creek (BEN) where more red flags emerge.

I was made an insider on today’s placing a while back and I am not selling my shares in Kefi (KEFI) for reasons I explain. But I am pretty angry with Harry and understand the ire of many of you. I discuss this. Then it is onto Verditek (VDTK) which looks to owe us all a trading statement and is almost certainly bust already. The target there, at 2.9p, is 0p. I also have words for the FCA here on Financial Promotions and why it should be sending Richard “Gollum” Gill to jail. Finally I look at Eurasia Mining (EUA)

The article is in the Daily Mail but I ask you to hold your nose and read it and not to just feel a profound sense of despair. It is HERE.  I then discuss the manifest failings of the FCA exposed earlier HERE. Finally I look at last week’s base rate rise and what it means and what happens next. It will not be pleasant. As an addendum I discuss our 2022 share tips of the year which will start on Boxing Day – there will be between 20 and 25 from the ShareProphets team, a few details are being finalised hence the imprecise final number.

The olive harvest is almost done, Bearcast listener and harvester B and I finished today as the heavens opened. So I am a bit wet but it is done. More details on my own site tomorrow when I shall have a full day at my desk.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast - Union Jack is now the most toxic stock on AIM

I comment on day three of the Greek Hovel olive harvest, a good day but a long one. But I start with Peter Brailey’s piece on Union Jack Oil (UJO) and explain why the company is now possibly the most toxic on AIM. I then look, en passant, at Amala Foods (DISH) and in detail at Tern (TERN) and Argo Blockchain (ARB).

The podcast covers life in Greece and then a suggestion that all EIS and VCT schemes should be wound up and consigned to the dustbin of history.

Who should join that merry band of fine upstanding citizens? Before then I discuss a chat with a broker about placing ennui, Tungsten (TUNG), what was WPCT (SUPP) and Rutherford Health (RUTH) where we await imminent news of the bad variety.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Chatting to Stuart Ashman, making a share purchase and meeting a psychic moron

In today’s podcast I discuss why I worry that my wife may have become a real housewife of posh Cheshire, not the part where they play rugby league. Then I look at ADM Energy (ADME) and that RNS reach issue again, tell you about a psychic moron who owns shares in Supply@ME Capital (SYME) and then I discuss, at length, Skinbiotherapeutics (SBTX) after a chat with CEO Stuart Ashman today and on the back of that I have bought more shares in the company.

Tom Winnifrith bearcast - the dossier that made my skin crawl

I do not name the company but the dossier is one one of the journalists here. It concludes that he has done nothing wrong but it goes through utterly uncalled for very personal details about him, his world view, his girl friend, his work and more. It made my skin crawl and the company that spunked £40,000 on this document should be utterly ashamedof itself. I have put in a call and let it know that behaving like this towards one of our journalists is asking for a lot of trouble. It is repellant and I am on the warpath.  I then look at the SP Angel/Union Jack Oil (UJO) scandal, at Nanosynth (NNN), Powerhouse (PHE) explaining the RNS/RNS Reach issue in full. Finally, I discuss Skinbiotherapeutics (SBTX).

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Doing the shocking maths on the cash position at the fraud Supply@ME Capital

In the end frauds always run out of other people’s cash.  It will be the same at Supply@ME Capital (SYME) and today’s Bearcast is a detailed analysis of just how bad its cash position has become. I also comment on ADM Energy (ADME) and wind damage to the slates here at the Welsh Hovel.

TomWinnifrith Bearcast - on the Upper Volta Aquis equivalent these shares would be suspended on Monday but on AIM?

I deal with the specifics of ADM Energy (ADME) shares in which must surely be suspended after my second bombshell in 24 hours, another fake sheikh exposed, but this is the AIM sewerr so maybe not. I deal with individuals who enabled this and name them and say why they should not have been in a position to enable this and have some ideas for the FCA, after its recent statement, on Quindell and other frauds.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: You ain't seen nothing yet on ADM: it's a zero

In today’s Bearcast I refer to my earlier podcast on the Botswana variant market sell off but take that forward to specific stocks to be buying and shares to be selling as a result. Then I look at Optbiotix (OPTI) and whether Steve O’Hara has been a naughty boy, ADM Energy (ADMEand my expose of earlier HERE – you ain’t seen nothing yet - and Union Jack Oil (UJO).

Tom Winifrith bonus Bearcast: The Botswana Covid variant and a tumbling stockmarket

How many folks have tested for this variant in the UK or died from it in the country where it is most prevalant – not Botswana? Or even been hospitalised by it in the epicentre?  The answer is the same number of times that I have shagged Cheryl Cole this week. But the market is tumbling. I discuss the real data behind this variant, the wild scaremongering and whether this is a buying opportunity in the world of shares? I referred to a bird from Edinburgh University who is the worst of the experts on forecasting HERE and to data from three continguous US states HERE, from Wales and England HERE and from central European countries centred on Hungary HERE.

In the podcast I apologise to the Earl of Shaftesbury (if he exists), it is – of course — the Earl of Shrewsbury who has been taking cash for questions.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: IQE in no way a Da company, I agree with Gary and that Big Sofa placing

I start with the Earl of Shrewsbury (not Shaftsbury a podcast mis-speak) who should be kicked out of the House of Lords after my latest cash for questions expose HERE. Of course he won’t be. Airstrip One is a rotten and corrupt place these days where folks like him are above the law.  Then I look at Cineworld (CINE), Big Sofa (BST), MyHealthchecked (MHC) and Horizonte Minerals (HZM) before looking at the peripheral issues raised by IQE’s (IQE) disastrous news and also at what is the real valuation, from someone who has called it 100% correctly.

The triumphs for me are Globo (GBOwhere the man who should know recognises my unique work and puts the FT’s snot gobbler in his place as the FCA swoop and SpectrumX and some real Tory sleaze exposed as it goes bust as advisers say its IPO is on track.  Then I look at AO World (AO.) where almost all the writers here are vindicated and deserve an ouzo tonight (sparkling water for puritan Chris), and Harland & Wolff (HARL) – ouzo for Peter Brailey, cabbage water for Andrew Monk. Finally a few words on the lastest spoof from the fraud Supply@ME Capital (SYME).

There is news of an interesting new shareholder today at ADVFN (AFN). I discuss what is, I think, going on and why you should not bet the ranch on a formal bid emerging.

Finally Chill Brands (CHLL) has been relegated to the Spartan South Midlands Division One and I explain what that means.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Why I can't be as bullish as I should be on gold & is La Willingham's chairman independent in any way?

I start on gold and why, though a bull, I can’t be as bullish as I think I should be. We are all prisoners of our pasts. Then back to Nightcap (NGHT) the corporate goverance disgrace founded by Sarah Willingham of Dragon’s Den fame. This all started with the greed and reward for failure I exposed HERE, the misuse of company funds exposed HERE and then the shocking undisclosed relationship of La Willingham with the chap who runs the Remuneration Committee HERE. Now I turn to chairman Gareth Edwards and another NED Thi Hanh Jelf and the Pinsent Masons connection. Can we really view Gareth as independent?  I call for three resignations and the return of company funds first thing tomorrow. That is the least Nomad Allenby should accept as the price for it not resigning.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: KERBOOM - the AIM CEO and the £167,530 of company cash used to settle personal liabilities

I have this one bang to rights. It is all there in the IPO prospectus (page 135) and the most recently released annual report. On the basis of what I describe the so -alled independent NEDs need to consider their position, the Nomad Allenby needs to force an immediate repayment of the sums involved and the company, already seriously uninvestable though capitalised at £32.1 million is a 100% bargepole. The image below is from one of its sites and page 18 of the annual report. At least this company understands irony.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: the silence of Superdry and the sleaze at Nightcap - surely this is a 0/10 for G (as in ESG)

I start with news of two birthdays. Then I look at today’s Superdry ramp from Versarien (VRS), at Wildcat (WCAT), where the FCA has already responded to  my missive, and at Nightcap (NGHT) where what I have revealed today is legal but surely stinks to high heaven making the shares utterly uninvestable.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast - a helpful graphic explaining the Cineworld smoke and mirrors today

I record from the Welsh Hovel which is once again a building site. Excuse any background noise. I look at Wildcat Petroleum (WCAT) and its uncorrected and untrue 4 October RNSThen at the fraud Chill Brands (CHLL). In both cases the regulator, the hapless FCA, should be acting right now. Then it is onto Cineworld (CINE) and, with the graphic below – hat tip EB. I explain why its trading statement is so deceptive and why the shares are still a sell. Finally a few words on Optibiotix (OPTI) & Skinbiotherapeutics (SBTX) and today’s confirmation of what a good journalist I am. What does it mean for both stocks?

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Proof that the liar and rule breaker John Story has been dumping Chill Brands shares and not telling folks about it

It was, of course, John Story who engaged with Seth Freedman, causing the harassment of myself, Gary, Peter, and a poor PR girl some months ago. We know he is a proven liar and also a rule breaker. So has he been dumping shares in Chill Brands and not telling anyone via TR1? You bet. And I prove it in this podcast. I also suggest what Chill, its shamed advisers Nick Harris of Allenby, and arsehole journalist smearer Henry Harrison-Topham of Buchanan as well as the FCA need to do about this mess.

Both Optibiotix (OPTI) and Skinbiotherapeutics (SBTX) have declined chances I have offered (two for Opti) to deny the trade was as I speculate. So where does this leave shareholders in both companies and the, badly advised by scumbags Cenkos, Steve O’Hara?

Then I look at the fraud Supply@ME Capital (SYME) where my vindication is complete, and which I can celebrate with vodka infusd plum crumble,  Volex (VLX), Manolete (MANO) and Feedback (FDBK)

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: The sordid truth emerges about Wandisco & the Equities First Hoods, Dave Richards should shoot and/or fire his advisers

I follow up on yesterday’s bearcast on Wandisco (WAND) and the deal done by CEO Dave Richards with the hoods at Equities First Holdings (EFH). Dave called me up. I explain why he is naive not dishonest but why he needs to grill his advisers. Was there a brown envelope? Who penned the RNS which now looks even more dishonest with what I tell you today? Dave should shoot and/or his advisers as they have landed him in the reputational soup.  I then look at today’s latest  disgusting revelations on the Charlie Wood Hydrogen and Helium SPAC spoof IPOs, at the utter naivety of Aquis and I have advise for certain City folk on what they should do as the regulator has failed. Liam, Fungai and he who shall not be named you know what to do. I look at Bowleven (BLVN) and also at Caracal Gold (GCAT) asking who is selling?

In today’s podcast I look at Argo Blockchain (ARB), at Galileo Resources (GLR) as Colin Bird tried to polish a total turd of drilling results, at why nobody cares about TR1’s even the supposedly virtous folks at Net Zero Infrastructure (NZI) with their patsy Tory career politician NED and finally at the new David Lenigas IPO, Hydrogen One PLC, which is, for so many reasons, a complete and utter disgrace and makes me ashamed to be a capitalist.

I start with good news for those who like salacious financial markets sleaze.I have been doing more digging into the David Lenigas, Charlie Wood & Anthony Eastman cesspit and this will become a series. Another installment tomorrow. And as a bonus there is a new bombshell on Julie “Lingerie on Expenses” Meyer MBE on its way. Who’s been a very naughty girl then? Then the Wandisco (WAND) shocker. I explain why today’s RNS is deceitful and why this makes the company uninvestable. Then it is onto Nanosynth (NNN), Darren Winters, The High Street Grp and a £60 million FCA mini-bond failure and finally, another villain of these pages, Colin Bird and a few thoughts on why shares in African Pioneer (AFP) may be tanking. PS I see that dodgy HK360 Limited has been forced to admit its sold its Net Zero Infrastructure (NZI) shares after yesterday’s letter to the FCA from myself. Will Net Zero now force TR1s from other shareholders who have dumped or doesn’t it care about the rules?

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: when you are in a bubble you never realise it

In today’s podcast delayed by the birthday of Mr Atwater Snr (perhaps) and by Christmas pudding making (for sure) I reference two other articles on the website today and two of the manias currently in mode which will end in tears.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: This GQ interview with Matthew Moulding of The Hut Group is a massive sell signal

Mr Moulding is clearly feeling the pressure at THG (THG). The interview here is remarkable and no doubt Moulding feels it will assist the share price. For all sorts of reasons I conclude that what comes over is a quite enormous sell signal.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Prize contest to win Greek Hovel 2021 olive oil, in 100 words what is a innovative Asymmetric Pseudo-Capacitor power pack

In today’s Bearcast, I ask how much would you be prepared to do to break LSE Rules to stop your company’s share price from crashing – ref Chill Brands (CHLL). I look at Versarien (VRS) and its latest spoof and the track record of it spunking your cash via Innovate UK grants. But the meat here is on HK360 Limited Brian Basham, Net Zero Infratructure (NZI), the FCA and what appears to be amassive failure of corporate governance, as outlined HERE

TomWinnifrith Postcard: US elections analysis, America says Let's go Brandon

Yesterday I predicted what would happen and what that means for the mid terms and the 2024 General Election HERE. In essence i was right, the Dems got a damn good kicking as America said Let’s Go Brandon.  The media and some Dems are in denial and I discuss the excuses made and why they do not wash. I also look at Trump vs Biden and how they acted over the past week and how that plays out. And so to the predictions for 2022 and 2024. Enjoy.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Happy Halloween, is that Julie Meyer screaming Trick or Treat at my front door?

Actually it is lashing down with rain and the Welsh Hovel is at the end of a badly lit lane so I shall be very surprised if any kids venture down here to say Trick or Treat. But I am ready to say “bugger off” if they do. In the podcast I discuss storms, COP26 and 1987, today’s article on Vast Resources (VAST) and the shock factor of interest rate rises for folks who cannot consider the idea they may happen.

Tom Winnifrith podcast: US Elections Special, #Trump2024 & #LetsgoBrandon - what it all means

I explain to British listeners the cultural idiom Let’s Go Brandon,look at the polls on Biden and explain them too.  That leads us onto today’s elections in the US but more importantly the mid terms next year which could leave Biden in very serious trouble.Will he then run again in 2024 or will his party cite senility, incompetence or incontinence and stab him in the back? So might we see Trump run again and win. It might be worth a small wager. Come what may, today’s polls may well mark the beginning of the end for sleepy Joe and his crime family and he has not even been in office for a year.  The original Nascar video referred to is below while the article on how the 2020 election was stolen is HERE, sleep Joe,

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: What will YOU do when interest rates spike & letters to regulators in Dublin & London

I start with letters I have or will be writing to two regulators. One is about a thief and a liar in Dublin and I explain why the Central Bank really should act but possibly will not.  The other is about a company on the Standard List exposed HERE today and I urge the FCA to take immediate action. Then I discuss the inevitability of higher interest rates. How will you cope?

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: its V Day!

I start with the two companies beginning with V and articles on this website today: Versarien (VRS) has responded, weakly to this expose. Vast Resources (VAST) cannot respond to this bombshell which exposes the cancer at the heart of AIM Regulation again and makes the shares uninvestable at any price. Then I look at Ben’s Creek (BEN), Skinbiotherapeutics (SBTX) on product launch day and at Central Copper where an IPO that should be pulled is delayed again.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Am I wrong about Supply@ME Capital and how do you know if Andrew Prelea of Vast is lying?

I start with a few notes on horticulture here in Wales then move onto questioning my strongly held belief that Supply@ME Capital (SYME) is a worthless fraud. Then I explain why the recent Cenkos note on Skinbiotherapeutics (SBTX) is wrong and how via its website the company faces an acid test. Actually the website I refer to has now been amended as you can see HERE. But not before my contact placed an order.  Finally I look at Vast Resources (VAST) and its shocking placing followed by even more shocking no-one is watching O’clock results.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Brian Basham demands a retraction

The Fleet Street Legend is up in arms about what he terms a foul smear on him HERE but, as I explain, the old champagne socialist is trying to pull the wool over our eyes with his mockney dining habits. At least the budget means that the champagne for Brian and his comrades will be cheaper but the Budget really is a shower. I explain why. Then it is onto Bluebird Merchant Ventures (BMV), Red Rock Resources (RRR) where it looks ever bleaker for my pal Andrew Bell and finally why the Redcentric (RCN) valuation is bonkers.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Am I wowed by the Skinbiotherapeutics presentation and what about the elephant in the room

According to a FinnCrap report all UK fund managers are. Even my old pal Mark who is slightly to the right of Genghis Khan? Somehow I doubt it but, as per Joshua and the red clothes day, which fund manager would dare to say that it is all so much shite? I discuss the opportunities that ESG mania offers for those prepared to call out the Emerperor’s New Clothes for what they are. I also discuss whether all entrepreneurs should be feted in the same way by those of us who do believe in capitalism, as per yesterday’s bearcast.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: So Jo Battershill do you understand why you now have fleas?

Then I look at Alien Metals (UFO) and Anglesy Mining (AYM), at Kanobo (KNB), Guild ESports (GILD) and at Reabold Resources (RBD). I start with a few words on last night’s video recording with the All Party Parliamentary Group on Personal Banking and Fairer Financial Services. With reference to it, if I sound conceited it is because, in my humble opinion, I have every right to be. The Alien expose to which I refer is HERE.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast - 3 horrors from Joshua's school that will make you despair

I start with the three horrors  which will make you despair and that is even before we deal with another INSET day, a day of yakking for teachers and inconvenience for the working prime carer who is your host today. Then I look at impending lockdown lunacy  and at one company which, i suspect, is already struggling but which will be hit for six, NightCap (NGHT). I skip onto Bezant (BZT) another Colin Bird pump and place, Dev Clever (DEV) – a stock for financial masochists only – Ben’s Creek (BEN) with a new shocking expose of its link with a disgraced financier and then the Woodfordesque dealings involving Boanerges Ltd (BNRG), WeShop, Vela (VELA) and BrandShield (BRSD).

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Will Andrew Bell be fired for Christmas?

I start with the wish of Joshua’s best pal to be a sheep in the school play. Like father like son, natch my boy is one of the three wise men. Then I ask if Andrew Bell will be fired at the Red Rock Resources (RRR) AGM before looking at Simec Atlantic (SAE), Feedback (FDBK), the fraud Chill Brands (CHLL) and my next missive to the FCA and British Honey (BHC) where, following up from my earlier piece, it seems an entire family was at the trough.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Charles Ingalls never suffered this, the grotesque inefficiency of mask fascist NHS staff & Kefi's woes

It has been a bad day at the homestead, the Welsh Hovel, as I explain. I have also had a run in with Shipmans and other staff at  “the envy of the fecking world”  so am in a bad mood. I discuss Kefi (KEFI) and what is happening in Ethiopia. I know more than all the BB savants but there is only so much that I can say. Then I look at the David Beckham-linked swizzle at Guild ESports (GILD) and, by implication, Cellular Goods (CBX) both of which will end in tears and be posterboys for the bezzles at the fag end of a bull market.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast - the 1 stock I have bought for my SIPP and four I almost bought

I start with a couple of talks from the Welsh Hovel and what they say about inflation and that almost drove me into buying two stocks for my SIPP.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: maybe the FCA might deal with Rob Terry

I ponder yesterday’s news which is terrible for Britain and which I find terribly disappointing at a personal level regarding the fraudster Rob Terry. I have a suggestion for the woke dullards at the FCA. I comment on the arrests of Umuthi fraudsters in Zim South and who in the UK now has massive questions to answer. I consider the Domino’s (DOM) trading statement and the issue Rishi Sunak faces on VAT.  This was a short working day for Jaya reasons, I’ll be back with a longer podcast on what should be a full day on Friday.

Tom Winnifrith Bonus Bearcast - a bleak day for the good guys in what is the golden age of fraud & white collar crime

I discuss the SFO, FCA, FRC, the big four accountants, the media and political classes and the big lawyers and the king of the fraudsters Rob Terry. I fear nothing will change. I go into detail how it could and should, why Rob Terry was guilty as sin giving you chapter and verse. But I fear nothing will change and explain why.

Tom Winnifrith SHOCKING Bearcast: No individual accountants at all are paying a cent of the fines the FRC boasts about

This is a shocking revelation which I discuss in detail. It shows the Big 4 accountancy firms are actually incentivising partners to engage in risky and incorrect business practices by indemnifying them against all costs if they are found out. The Big 4 then treat such fines as just another cost of doing business. What is going on is a disgrace which expses the moral bankruptcy at the heart of the accountancy establishment and must force the FRC to rethink punishments. I also discuss Ariana Resources (AAU) and why it needs no PR but especially the shysters it currently uses, the deafening silence at Chill Brands (CHLL) which marks it out as a zero and Union Jack Oil (UJO) where I suspect it is tme to give up and look elsewhere in the sector.

I look at Mercantile Ports and Logistics (MPL), Sosandar (SOS), Powerhouse Energy (PHE), Simec Atlantic Energy (SAE) – well done Peter Brailey – and finally as the economic illiteracy of Boris Johnson as the Tories screw the poor in an inflationary world they only make worse.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast - when's the profits warning from Sosandar & the tale of the unhappy young man

I sart with the unhappy young man. Actually he is in his 40s. But it is a tale which, I suspect, is being replicated across the UK. It will trigger abrain drain as we go back to the 1970s. Then I discuss the scumbags at Abingdon Health (ABDX) screwing PIs ahead of an inevitable placing, I ask when Sosandar (SOS) will warn as it surely must, I look at share trades in the fraud Chill Brands (CHLL) and what they mean and then ask what the xxxx (Matthew & dog please insert word) Luke Johnson is doing investing in the lifestyle business run by the upper class twit of the year that is Marechale Capital (MAC). I am sure it will do better as an investment than Patisserie Holdings (CAKE) but not that much better.

Then, in that context, I look at the Optibiotix (OPTI) vs Skinbiotherapeutics (SBTX) debate. Should one short one and go long the other as PL has suggested? I discuss what I am doing and why.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Which high profile journalist said last night "TW was brave and TW was right!"

Jeepers, the answer will shock you but is a reminder that Fleet Street does read this website avidly.  In the rest of the podcast, as my son spends the day vomiting I discuss a work life balance that is becoming increasingly daft. Then I head back to work looking at Ariana Resources (AAU) where I disagree with Nigel and probably lose another friend (Kerim Sener),  Chesterfield Resources (CHF), Boohoo.com (BOO), AO World (AO.), Parsley Box (PUKE), Mercantile Ports (MPL) and Primary Bid and what it needs to change.

I receive an invitation to an online pot conference. More signs this sector is hot and thus one I shall avoid. I mention Chill Brands (CHLL) which is not hot and which could see its shares suspended by Friday. I discuss why the Tiger Royalties (TIR) portfolio is toxic and could implode. Surely its Nomad Roland “fatty” Cornish can peer over his ever expanding belly and see the danger? I discuss en passant Go Ahead (GOG) and in more detail interims from Powerhouse Energy (PHE). Then to why HEIQ (HEQ) numbers today are so dripping in red flags as yet another recent IPO ( 10 months ago) comes crashing down.

Then a look at Real Good Food (RGF) and companies delisting before a look at the pathetic punishments for the enablers of fraud at Patisserie Holdings (CAKE) I also look at what Australian regulators are doing to tackle pump and dump twitter gangs while the FCA jerks off on more ESG porn doing nothing about tackling real crime. I flag up Aura Energy (AURA) in this regard.

To be fair they agreed with me and think the villagers are, again, acting like total poltroons in harassing me whereas the previous owners were allowed to dump asbestos and so whatever they wanted. I explain all in the podcast but suffice to say I am angry. Then I look in detail at Tern (TERN) and go far further than Lucian did earlier HERE. Then onto Union Jack (UJO) where nothing  ow makes sense. I also look at the crazy world of Wildcat Petroleum (WCAT) once more and add my tuppence worth on the scandal that is Seraphine (BUMP).

At 1p, a £21 million market cap is about £21 million too high in my book. I also discuss Jubilee Metals (JLP) and Mark Slater and that links nicely to an IPO I am dodging and I explain why I am passing on what appeared a likeable and competent team. Finally a detailed look at perennial dog Mirriad (MIRI) whose shares are – despite slipping 10% today – still a stonking sell.

Will it on Wednesday blow off Jeff Prestridge as he blew off Neil Woodford? Or will it face him down and put one of the main enablers of what went on via his yellow journalism on the spot? I suggest some questions that Cliff Weight needs to put to Mr Presstrip. Or what abut listener Steve, would such an online showdown cheer you up?

In the podcast I deal with Unon Jack Oil (UJO)  and my article of earlier and of the issue of who CEO’s should do interviews with.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast - what about the victims?

I discuss a fascinating article about XL Media (XLMHERE in the Times of Israel. If I wanted to list a fraud I’d be big on ESG as was XL. Chris Bailey’s fund manager pals would love it as I stole all the cash. I look at gender targets and ask what they should be, referencing Principals of Cambridge Colleges. I look at Mercantile Ports (MPL) and PrimaryBid and then what I plan, or hope, to do next about the fraud Umuthi (UHS), ask the victims to tell their stories. I look at Paul Johnson’s Power Metal Resources (POW) and its latest news which takes me back to 2007 and Mark Watson Mitchell’s Yellowcake. I comment on Asimilar (ASLR) and then go to town on Deepverge (DVRG) and its journalist trolling cock of a CEO Gerry Brandon explaining why I believe investors were materially misled in the run up to the £10 million June 7 placing and why the company is, for a variety of reasons, a total bargepole. It is just not investment grade material.

As folks close to the fraud Umuthi (UHS) start to play the man not the ball I set the record straight. I have agonised about the ethics of this as a journalist but feel I have no choice and then to MyHealthChecked (MHC) where we shareholders have to accept that facts changed today.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast - thoughts on 9/11 and the advantages of being older as greed is all around us

I start with a few reflections on that dreadful day 20 years ago. Then look at Oxford Nanopore and Central Copper and the advantages as an investor of having been around the block a few times as greed right now is all around us. Finaly a few more words on Umuthi (UHS) after today’s shocking exposes and what the FCA needs to do asap about this scandal.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: I do not think camp Optibiotix realises how unloved it has become

I start with the Chris Cleverly West Ham round-up and what says about our attitude to white collar crime in the UK. What it says disgusts me. I move onto Optibiotix (OPTI). i am still a bull but i explian to the company why it is so unloved. Then finally to Cineworld (CINE) a slam dunk short at 63p. This could be a penny stock after an inevitable debt for equity swap but, taking a 30 year view, I would not buy even then.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: 3 excuses for me

I make three excuses for a short bearcast all of them equally valid and then serve up a normal length bearcast after all covering ennui and self delusion setting inat Chill Brands (CHLL), my ancient memories of Anglesey Mining (AYM) and why you should not believe a word that it says and the most excellent expose by Peter Brailey of Powerhouse Energy (PHE) which we published today.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: IQE proves the genius of Tom Winnifrith & why Malcolm and thirsty Paul were so wrong

I start with an explanation of why I feel old and of the noises you may hear from the Welsh Hovel as I record. Then I look in detail at IQE (IQE) plus I comment on Verditek (VDTK) and Bidstack (BIDS) and when each will next run out of cash, at MyHealthChecked (MHC) which will not and finally at the disgrace that is Parsley Box (MEAL) at lessons folks should, but will not, learn and at why the shares will still crash even from here, having almost halved since the March 31 IPO.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast - a forensic investigation into the Marechale spoof and Weardale Lithium

I start by looking at a new normal and justifying a £50 million valuation. Then there is a look at the most almighty spoof from Marechale Capital (MAC) run by upper class twit Marke Warde-Norbury. How on earth did Nomad Cairn Financial sign off on this bollocks announcement regarding Weardale Lithium? Thirty seconds at Companies house shows what a farce this all is as I explain in full detail.

Tom Winnifrith Bonus Bearcast - Probing Lucian, as he prepares to do porridge, on the big five UK shorts - what triggers the end game?

Yesterday I was reviewing Lucian’s big 5 small cap shorts with the great bear over breakfast. Breakfast BTW was porridge with home made stewed apples (from the Welsh Hovel) in cinnamon. In the podcast I discuss last night’s culinary fare but then probe Lucian on what he sees as critical mid and end points for each of his 5 UK small cap big shorts: Tern (TERN), Versarien (VRS), Chill Brands (CHLL), Supply@ME Capital (SYME) and Eurasia Mining (EUA)

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Shocked by a dossier on a Standard Listed fraud the FCA knew about and allowed you to buy shares in

This podcast is in two parts. I start with a few words on Malcolm’s piece of earlier on Creightons (CRL) and paying a high or low PE. Then I have been passed a dossier and had a conference call about a company the FCA has allowed you to buy shares in even though it was told that the individual behind it was on Police bail for a massive fraud and had a history of fraud and guess what, this company is also a top to bottom fraud. I am gobsmacked by it all but especially by this latest Standard List failing by the FCA which is just not fit for purpose.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Workmen quitting on me, this is part of that inflationary storm

Either quitting or not turning up or quoting daft prices or saying they can’t do anything till whenever. It is all part of the inflationary storm and I discuss that. Then daft broker and paid for research notes. Should regulators act? I think it is pointless. I look back to 2010 and 2001 and other notes, it is all just a sign of the times.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Lucian Miers' big 4 UK small cap shorts

On each of the four there is borrow and Lucian is short. There is a 5th where he has a small short but borrow is hard to obtain. I go through all five and explain why they will all see a share price collapse if not a total wipeout.
