Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Matthew's Dog will be on cloud nine as I am so angry with Nigel, the corrupt Sunday Times and with MyHealthChecked

First up, after I nudged Paul Staines (Guido) we did get that hat tip as you can see HERE. Cheers Paul. I then look at Babcock (BAB), Boatman Capital and the corrupt deadwood press, Minoan (MIN), the fraud Zoetic (ZOE) and its missing results, Kefi (KEFI), [email protected] Capital (SYME) and the missing shares and then at MyHealthChecked (MHC) where I expect the shares to zoom within weeks but which is causing me to spit nails.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: this is all about the loathsome bully and stock promoter Neill Ricketts

This is all about Ricketts who runs the worthless POS that is Versarien (VRS) trying to bully his critics into silence. Please listen and if each listener agrees that Ricketts must be stopped and donates £10 here we will stop him. Please donate NOW!

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: MyHealthChecked & Zoetic again, on the latter big questions raised

On MyHeathChecked (MHC) I tidy up all the loose ends from yesterday’s options storm and i am confident that the greedy management have behaved in this way as the shares will head higher. On the fraud Zoetic (ZOE) I discuss the purchase of the domain name Chill.com and all the questions that throws up. I do know a bit about buying domain names and this is not what it seems. Then I cover the 2 questions that its financial adviser, Nick Harriss at Allenby and its scumbag PR Henry Harrison Topham will not respond to and which i will be taking up with the FCA tomorrow. It strikes me these are slam dunk rule breaches.  Nick, at least, used to care about such matters.

Tom Winnifrith praised and thanked by a regulator yet again as another PLC forced to correct crooked accounts signed off by KPMG

Sometimes when I read what BBMs write about me even I start to wonder if I am a bad guy even though I know all their defamatory slurs are false. But those who matter know otherwise and also take me seriously. Today, another letter arrives thanking me for my work which has caused another PLC to have to restate crook accounts. The Sheriff of AIM vs Eden Research (EDEN) and KPMG (again). For the second time in 4 years my work has spurred the Financial Reporting Council to act against Eden & KPMG.  I have now lost count of how many such missives I have received from my good pals at  the FRC but it is quite a lot. The letter is below.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: A day when ShareProphets is covered in glory (again)

Yet again I have been thanked by the regulator for exposing cooked PLC books. Not that this will stop BBMs from defaming me in all the usual ways but those who count know we matter. So I discuss Eden Research (EDEN) and KPMGThen there is Peter Brailey’s amazing scoop. Ta Guido for the hat tip (not!) – I discuss Powerhouse Energy (PHE) and Tim Yeo the sleazebag ex Tory MP.  Then I turn to Verditek (VDTK) as it misleads again c/o the AIM Shit of the year Richard “Gollum” Gill as his green ponzi bond deadline approaches. Finally there is the fraud Zoetic (ZOE) where my target price remains 0p after today’s dire admission. Add to your shorts.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: I have never read such total bollocks in my life in an RNS

An early podcast as Joshua and I are off exploring for an old bridge and a back road to Orova shortly. In today’s bearcast I look at Predator Oil & Gas (PRD) – a cause for extra ouzo tonight as Ron Pilbeam gets the order of the boot after my missive to the FCA – at new IPO Spinnaker Acquisitions (SPAQ) which looks like an overpriced nest of vipers and finally at the fraud [email protected] Capital (SYME) whose RNS today is just complete and utter bollocks.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Been there, done it, bought the T-shirt

I end with another appeal for brave Ian Westbrook. We are now just over £7,000 from making Neill Ricketts of Versarien (VRS) sweat like the loathsome pig he is. Please do donate HERE. I start with a comment on Kefi (KEFI) from the horse’s mouth, and a look at the fraud Zoetic (ZOE), Deepverge (DVRG), Moonpig (MOON), Uru Metals (URU) and the Zak Mir top of the market call.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: PR firm takes its knob off the Block

Forgive the crude title or love it if you are Matthew and his dog. I could not resist. I start with a discussion of the tyranny of village facebook pages prompted by my latest spat with some villagers of Holt in Wales HERE. Then I look at Kefi (KEFI), Zoetic (ZOE), Kanobo (KNB), [email protected] Capital (SYME), Block Energy (BLOE) and the bitcoin pump by America’s Neil Woodford and others. Ian Westbrook is now at just under £12,000 and has ten days to reach £20,000 to see the loathsome Neill Ricketts at the next stage. To call the bluff of the Versarien (VRS) bully, please donate HERE. PS Darren points out it is the 26th not the 27th. He is correct.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: No I am not buying Red Rock or Open Orphan tomorrow or any Ben & Jerry's ice cream

I start on the issue of PLCs with unpaid bills from lockdown. There will be some catch-ups and icebergs ahead. Cineworld (CINE) is a case study. Then the stock I am buying tomorrow. It is NOT Open Orphan (ORPH) or Red Rock Resources (RRR) as some of you think and I discuss both. Then to Ben & Jerry’s and its hatred of the Jewish state. I am tempted to buy a share in Unilever (ULVR) to go to its next AGM.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: the thief in the night is now free

Good news: the mule with my money arrived last night. I shall buy the shares at 8.30 AM Monday and serve up a bonus bearcast/bullcast to explian my thinking then. The rest of today’s podcast covers inflation, the genie has escaped but what should you do?

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: my money still on a donkey, the dimmest PR going & a refresher on goat milking

I apologise for a late bearcast. I was meeting up with my mentor on goat milking. Meanwhile brave Ian Westbrook is now half way to target to ensure that bully boy Neill Ricketts does not steamroller his second biggest critic - please do donate HERE. After 24 hours I still cannot tell you what shares I will be buying. Maybe on Monday. In the podcast I look at Ptredator Oil & Gas (PRD), Simec (SAE), Remote Monitored Systems (RMS) and  Acceler8 Ventures (AC8) where my take may surprise you.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: If Ron Pilbeam has not broken market rules either I'm a banana or the rulebook is a joke (or both)

Is the sound okay? The arrival of the Mrs and Jayarani means a change of recording location. I start with Peter Brailey’s Predator Oil & Gas (PRD) expose. If the FCA does not come down on director Ron Pilbeam like a ton of bricks we might as well all give up. Then I look at Vast Resources (VAST) – a total bargepole stock where I sniff a deeply discounted placing  – then challenge you on two counts regarding Online Blockchain (OBC) before considering Argo Blockchain (ARB) its strangely worded RNS today and whether it will still be solvent on St Ledger’s day.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Could Argo Blockchain explode within weeks?

A frantic morning of tidying sees Joshua and I ready to face the Mrs, we head to Athens shortly. Ahead of that I suggest a new gender test for the Olympics. In the main podcast I look at bitcoin, Argo Blockchain (ARB), Fevertree (FEVR), coping on a meltdown day, Nightcap (NGHT) and St James House (SJH).

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast - so I am going to buy some more shares

I shall explain why and what tomorrow. But I eat my own pudding in that I believe the recent sell off in small caps offers opportunity. But for some companies, notably those with funding issues it could be very bad news. I discuss [email protected] Capital (SYME), its director Mr Bull and its mother of all death spirals, Remote Monitored Systems (RMS) where the cash, its only asset of value,  is disappearing fast and Versarien (VRSwhere I urge you to back Ian Westbrook TODAY as its 2 death spirals really start to bite. I also comment on Predator Oil & Gas (PRD) which looks to be a can of worms and Loop Up (LOOP) where maybe I am just a bit dim but isn’t it pointless?

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Me and the rent boys

In today’s podcast, I discuss the two big media stories of the week: GB News getting no viewers at all at some stage last week and the idea that social media posters should have to disclose their identity. That is where the rent boys (non) issue comes up.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Will gold hit $18,000 - do I have to mention Cheryl?

I start with events on the Isle of Man and general covid lunacy and how that makes everything – including MyHeathChecked (MHC) – such a gamble. When will this track and trace madness stop? It is sheer insanity. Then I look at the gold price reviewing my portfolio and finally a few words on today’s expose on Wildcat Petroleum (WCAT) where the silence of its scumbag advisors is deafening.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast - why the hell should someone on an average wage fund a 3% pay rise for my sister?

I start with the 3% pay rise for all employees of the envy of the world which once employed the late Harold Shipman. It is quite dreadful. Then I look at Bluebird Merchant Ventures (BMV), Parsley Box (MEAL) and Audioboom (BOOM).

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: For a change talking my own book

First up, would you rather listen to Joshua on Dinosaurs than to me on shares tomorrow? He thinks he is the world’s greatest expert but perhaps we should see how he fares on the Sunday quiz if Darren yields to his demands and has some dinosaur questions in it first? In today’s podcast, I look at the FCA’s new business plan, at ADVFN (AFN) and why Yair Tauman need to put up or shut up, at Online Blockchain (OBC), [email protected] Capital, Seed Ventures (SEED – in detail – and en passant the fraud Zoetic (ZOE) and Orcadian (ORCA) which I backed pre IPO and which Peter Brailey writes up HERE.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast - Another fail for the FCA and more to come!

Happy Bastille Day to our listeners in France. Here another day of swimming and cooking for guests. In today’s podcast, I look at Verditek (VDTK) and the latest missive from Gollum, the investment whores at Proactive, the fraud [email protected] Capital (SYME) & its death spiral and finally more thoughts on today’s Winnileaks special on MC Saatchi and what it says about the useless FCA when it comes to tackling white-collar crime. Finally a few words with Cliff Weight of ShareSoc re Financial Promotions.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: for the second time I question Ariana

Forgive the late bearcast but the local members of the Guardian reading classes came round to swim with Joshua. In today’s podcast I look at Ariana Resources (AAU), Bluebird Merchant Ventures (BMV) and ther IPO frenzy with especial reference to Revolution Beauty and Forward Partners (FWD)

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: those magic words "I have 700 Euro for you here in cash" worked perfectly

I start with swimming pool news then look at today’s shocking Vast Resources (VAST) expose HERE. Then onto Berkeley Energia (BKY) – another reason to be glad about Brexit – then onto Cineworld (CINE) and Nightcap (NGHT). I save my football take for my own website HERE.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Will the soon to be ex NED birds at the FRC stop whining & would I buy Crystal Amber?

We have our first visitor at the Greek Hovel this year, an odd fellow, so Joshua and i have been tidying hard. My son really was very helpful at putting together the new hoover, I’d have been lost without him. In today’s podcast I discuss soon to be ex NED’s whinging about lack of diversity at the FRC and why they are so wrong. Then I ask whether I’d buy Crystal Amber (CLS) as surely i will make 20% in five months. Er…no.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Beware extrapolationitis re MyHealthChecked

Joshua and I visited Kardamili of Paddy Leigh Fermor fame this morning and more on that later. In today’s podcast, I cover Catenae (CTEA), en passant the fraud Zoetic (ZOE), and MyHeathchecked (MHC) where I caution against extrapolations but suggest why I think the shares should or could double. PS Joshua’s second name is Patrick, he is named after the great man who was a good friend of my father.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: C'mon Cheryl love - forget the health spa, how about a break in a Greek Hovel, half way up a mountain in the snakefields?

Hat tip to Roger for pointing out what Britain’s leading chanteuse is missing out on as she celebrates her 38th birthday. No it cannot be true can it? Elsewhere I look at Hurricane Energy (HUR) and the antics of Crystal Amber, at Verditek (VDTK) and at how TR1s are abused by penny share hucksters and rampers.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Buying a hoover in Kalamata

Obviously the big excitement was the snake but Joshua and I also faced down mask fascists as we bought a hoover in Kalamata. Most of today’s bearcast concerns the antics of Justin the Clown, Boston International (BIH), the rash of IPOs and what it means and Argo Blockchain (ARB).

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Too many schoolboy errors on the navigation front - finally back at the Greek Hovel

Joshua and I are back, at last. It is all my fault, he was very understanding although he blamed me. In today’s podcast I explain this and then look at Morrison’s (MRW), Zoetic (ZOE) and [email protected] Capital (SYME).

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Am I, as a Glaxo shareholder, sexist for saying that a CEO who underperforms should be fired?

Joshua and I are about to have pancakes and a swim and then set out on the next leg of our road trip. A few photos from yesterday’s tearful encounters are HERE. In today’s podcast, I look at the smears that establishment folk like Alex Brummer are using to defend an establishment woman who has failed to deliver, the grotesquely overpaid CEO of GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) Emma Walmsley. I want her to pack her bags too and explain why she should.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Another gotcha for the Sheriff - this time it's Bidstack, bailout placing at 2p

In today’s bearcast with myself and Joshua recorded in Metsovo, I comment on MyHealthChecked (MHC), Boots & EasyJet, the blooming Poulden Lenigas bromance, on Zoetic (ZOE) and on Bidstack (BIDS). More ouzo tonight methinks.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Disagreeing with Nigel on Ariana and disagreeing with PL on Bluebird/Southern Gold

I record this early in the Greek morning as today is a road trip day as Joshua and I head to Vlach land. I cover two stocks I own – Ariana (AAU) where I am less excited about a special dividend than is Nigel. I reckon its strategy is wrong. And Bluebird Merchant Ventures (BMV) where I explain why PL’s suggested proxy purchase of Southern Gold is not as smart as he thinks it is.

Tom Winnifrith Photo Bearcast: Celebrating the Eden triumph but humiliated by Andrew Bell again

I start with logistical issues. Thanks to Andrew Bell and Red Rock Resources (RRR), I need to find another hat to eat on video. This may take a while but I am a man of my word. I discuss Red Rock and why Bell has let me down. I end with a picture of where I was at lunchtime with Joshua celebrating today’s personal triumph re Eden Research and KPMG. Then I look at Verditek (VDTK) where surely the FCA or the Oxymorons at AIM Regulation must act now. Today’s news begs more questions for the AIM Shit of the year 2012-20, Richard Gill, aka Gollum. Then onto Hurricane Energy (HUR), Wildcat Petroleum (WCAT) and Eight Capital Partners (ECP) part of the [email protected] Capital (SYME) swamp.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Even now I reckon Bluebird could double this summer

In today’s bearcast from myself and Joshua who I am having to bribe to be quiet, I look at Bluebird Merchant Ventures (BMV), TrakM8 (TRAK), more smoke and mirrors from the fraud [email protected] Capital (SYME) and the joys of watching tonight’s football here in Greece with my friend Nicho the Communist and the rest of a village where the Hun are not wildly popular.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: [email protected], Hurricane & Tern - 3 joke valuations

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast - the 3 reasons Matt Hancock should have resigned this morning whatever his job

I start with l’affaire Hancock and what it says about standards in public life, whether politics or the corporate world in Britain today. For three reasons, not including the fact that he is useless or the act of infidelity, he should be fired. He will not be. I then consider late results with reference to Ariana (AAU) and the fraud [email protected] Capital (SYME) which is now – perhaps – just three working days from slipping down the plughole leading to the sewer of insolvency.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast - I find this AIM Sewer crony capitalist greed too much to bear

I return to the subject of Sosandar (SOS) – goaded by PL – then to Braveheart Investment (BRH). I discuss companies late filing accounts using the covid excuse – is it not time this ruse was stopped. Then I end with some words on the Manolete (MANO) dog.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: bad language special as I consider the repellent greed shown by the 1 percenters at Sosandar

I am so angry that I forgot to mention bitcoin crashing again and the operational and financial gearing at drowning in red flags Argo Blockchain (ARB). So I am angry and the resultant bad language will delight Matthew and his dog. I consider Sosandar (SOS), Hurricane Energy (HUR), Bidstack (BIDS), Kefi (KEFI) and Bluebird Merchant Ventures (BMV).

Bidstack still to confess to slumping trade, placing needed within weeks or its bankrupt but mad conspiracists blame Israel & Tom Winnifrith

Shares in Bidstack (BIDS) have slumped to just 2.95p today. There are two reasons for that but mad Jew-hating loons on the Bulletin Boards think there is a third. Of course, blame the wicked Jews for everything. Just why does this company attract such total lunatics? Do you remember cross-dressing IT freak Mike Turner from Northants?

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast - filling in another fecking form for Greece

That wasted an hour of my life but it looks like all systems go for Saturday when Steve Moore will be in charge of this website while Joshua and I head to the Greek Hovel. In today’s podcast I look at bitcoin’s latest dump and Argo Blockchain (ARB) and at Dev Clever (DEV) and its joke acquisition. That required a bit of work for me at Companies House as did researching today’s smoke and mirrors deal from Remote Monitored Systems (RMS) – how did Nomad SP Angel sign off on this cobblers? I then look at Avacta (AVCT), Zoetic (ZOE), MyHealthChecked (MHC), Bidstack (BIDS) and the fraud [email protected] Capital (SYME). Where are its results?

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: another reason to hate the Tories as Olaf shows what a girly swot she is

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Do I buy, sell or hold MyHealthChecked?

I start with a defence of my share tipping on Optibiotix (OPTI). Am I really responsible for a chap who has bought and sold four times each time making a loss? He blames me. Then I consider if I should buy, sell or just hold MyHealthChecked (MHC). Then a few words on Father’s Day and also a few words on how I shall be annoying Abi the mutant curtain twitcher tomorrow.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: I'm only doing it for the Israelis, for the Jews & what about the missing £100,000 say the morons

I start with a reflection on two smears from Bulletin Board Morons and about how media platforms from BBs to twitter need to respond to deal with such malice. Then a few thoughts on why the Tories are pissing off Tory voters in Chesham and elsewhere. Then I look at Versarien (VRS), Westminster Group (WSG) and at Bidstack (BIDS), breaking AIM Rules as it teeters on the edge. Oh, is that a Fat Lady I see gargling over there?

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Zoetic shares crash 20% in US

I start with a request to you all, to help me nail some villains. Please can you send THIS OUTSIDE PAYWALL ARTICLE to all your twitter, instagram, facebook etc accounts. I then look at the frauds Zoetic International (ZOE) and [email protected] Capital (SYME), as well as Best of the Best (BOTB) which is not a fraud but is a stock that for three reasons I would not touch with a bargepole.

I then battle EasyJet (EZJ) to get my own money back and discuss why i would not own its shares. Then onto Bidstack (BIDS) which will meet payroll next week but will struggle in July, Verditek (VDTK) and finally Westminster Group (WSG) run by sleazy ex Tory MP Tony Baldry of the fraud 3DM infamy.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Paul Atherley do you really think this EU fake news will help you pull young women, even in Islington?

I start with the 4 week delay to what is laughably called Freedom Day here in Airstrip One. It makes me so angry as there is no justification for it. Next up more woke nonsense from Pensana (PRE), before a look at Colin Bird’s quartet of mining juniors and asking if it is worth the risk? Finally Tavistock Investments (TAVI) – too good to be true?

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast - more failures at the FCA and more bonuses plus Kefi & country risk

I start with a few thoughts on Kefi Gold & Copper (KEFI) in the wake of today’s scoop. Then it is onto more failings at the FCA and the scandal of its staff bonuses. Finally some thoughts on inflation which is now clearly starting to get a grip. Even so I can’t stop myself holding a good bit of cash.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast - a big scare on the Greek front

I start with a big but false Greek holiday scare and a triumph on the nettle brewing front here at the Welsh hovel, followed by a snake scare at the same place.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast - [email protected] Capital really is keeping the idiots in suspense and me too...

Not coal which brings me onto the lies and reality at Plutus Powergen (PPG). I look at the fraud [email protected] Capital (SYME) and Alien Metals (UFO) and the more general issue of related party deals after today’s expose on this website.

Kefi – Victory for Tom Winnifrith & PL as executive greed gravy train sent into reverse

On Monday morning, Kefi Gold & Copper (KEFI) boss Harry Adams said he was unaware of anyone opposing a plan which would have seen him trouser a $1.5 million cash bonus – on top of his annual drawings of £337,000 – within two years just for doing his job. I made it bloody clear that I was livid and would vote against all proposals at the forthcoming AGM if Harry did not think again. Today he did the right thing and thought again.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Even Olaf can't keep getting hammered every night forever

In today’s podcast I look at Alien Metals (UFO), have a lot more thoughts on Kefi (KEFI) where I agree with PL’s plan to align Harry Adams’ interests with ours as shareholders and have urged the company to consider it, at [email protected] Capital (SYME) and at NightCap (NGHT), the financial creation of La Willingham.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: all about Kefi says an angry man

This is all about Kefi Gold & Copper (KEFI), corporate governance, linking management reward to that for shareholders and how CEOs and Nomads and PR fluffies do not have a fecking scooby on how we dirty private investors invest and think. I am an angry man. But I also think these shares will quadruple.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Retirement planning, Iconic & Northern Ireland

In today’s podcast, I start with a few thoughts on the finances of retirement, then the G7 tax ruling and what it means for the future of God’s chosen lands of Northern Ireland. And then there is the demise of Iconic (ICON): why I welcome it, what it tells us about investor behaviour and why it is yet another fail for the woke dullards at the FCA.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Why can't Adam Reynolds burn his bloody keyboard?

I start with my utter revulsion at Neil Woodford after today’s expose HERE - can anyone be in any doubt now that he is a truly evil and morally bankrupt individual?

It seems that Britain’s thirstiest share blogger Paul Scott has had another go at me with a post at 25 minutes after midnight. I trust Paul had enjoyed a good night. Anyhow, I put him straight with a few facts. I then look at Argo Blockchain (ARB) and its trading statement and valuation, Plutus Powergen (PPG), Tern (TERN), [email protected] Capital (SYME) and Cineworld (CINE).

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: does anyone care about corruption or misuse of taxpayer cash anymore?

I start with thoughts about yesterday’s walk, especial thanks to Jonathan Price, Steve Moore, Robert Lewis and Lucian Miers and his son, the other five rogue bloggers who managed all 34.2 miles. Lucian as the logistics meister who also got another stack of relatives to join us deserves especial credit. Thank you to all who sponsored us, it is not too late to donate here. Then onto what I see as corruption, the misuse of taxpayer cash by so many in the corporate world. It is legal but immoral but I sense no one really cares which saddens me.

Buy Sylvania Platinum

On banking near 300% gains on Jubilee Metals (JLP) earlier this year, we noted still significant positives but management actions which were not comfortably supportable. On fundamentals, at 20p, Jubilee still looks to have 10% upside, or arguably more, which is why Tom Winnifrith & Steve Moore remain shareholders but we cannot, in good conscience, tip shares in a company where there are such clear corporate governance issues. So, on that basis, the following looks a good replacement for it .

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast - we live in the time of the bezzle

I start on the usual subject. Please do donate HERE. Then I discuss a bull market and the bezzle and recent deals that are simply corrupt or wrong or deceptive. The case studies are Live Company (LVCG), Iconic (ICON) and Powerhouse (PHE). Anyone spending 20 minutes on the internet can see for themselves. Only in a raging bull market could folks think they would get away with such nonsense. I comment on the crisis at Bidstack (BIDS) and then analyse today’s trading statement from ADVFN (AFN) and what it means for the battle for the board.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast - will Fergie stay schtum? A much needed change in rules for departing executives

I start with a discussion of my 27 mile training walk today. Gosh it was hard going in the Cheshire mud so as you think of my suffering, thank you if you have already chipped in, please donate to Rogue Bloggers for Woodlarks NOW HERE. Then it is onto the idea of what departing executives should have to say rather than accepting gagging orders. Paul Ferguson of the fraud Zoetic (ZOE) is a case study. I reckon he will say nowt and bank a payoff instead. That should not happen.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Explaining with hard data and FACTS why Zoetic shares will collapse from 63.5p to buttons

I thank those who have been so generous so far but if you have not yet donated to Rogue Bloggers for Woodlarks consider a fat middle aged man walking 27 miles in the Cheshire rain tomorrow and please give a few quid HERE. In this podcast I look at one company, at hard facts about its share ownership, about its sales about what it has not said and at peer group valuation analysis. At the end of it all, I challenge anyone to disagree with the conclusion that the shares will collapse over the coming months from 63.5p to buttons. Re the declaration, the share I own is Imperial Brands (IMB).

I start by asking you to consider a fat old man walking 27 miles in the rain this Sunday and then to make a donation to Rogue Bloggers for Woodlarks HERE. Then 1 man who harassed victims of Harvey Weinsten for the old pervert and one who discussed having me killed contact me within 14 minutes of each other with an identical demand. Coincidence?  Can I now say #MeToo and that this is all rather unpleasant? Then I discuss Bidstack (BIDS), Nightcap (NGHT) and finally London & Associate Properties (LAS) and my old pal the quite amazing and great Baron Phillips.

Then Verditek (VDTK) – looking more and more a zero – Watchstone (WTG) – Quindell as was and the jail cell waiting for Rob Terry, today;s update on that.

Tom Winnifrith Podcast: is Labour still pissing in its own bath? Jersey and Northern Ireland suggest that it is

Labour took a hammering across the UK last night and in this podcast I consider this rather crude analogy first used by one of its own leaders with regard to how it views the folks who were its core supporters. with reference to Northern Ireland and Jersey I argue that it cannot close the gap that now exists with its core and as such it can never hope to regain power and in Wales – as has already happened in Scotland – it may well become an irrelevancy. I refer to this piece on Tory sleaze from last week. One day that will matter but maybe it won’t for a very long time.

Remembering the late Dr Tom Winnifrith

My father would have put big red marks on this obituary for him by Stephen Nash for the Anglo Albanian Association, where it is suggested that Shipston is in Worcestershire rather than Warwickshire. Otherwise he would have been rather touched by what follows as were myself and my siblings. But Dad wouldn’t have said so. Folks of his generation did not admit to such things. Maybe he might have chosen a rather less “mad professorish” photo.

There are a lot of disgraceful things happening today and so this is a long bearcast and Matthew and his Dog will enjoy it.

In the excitement I forgot to mention uber dog Bidstack (BIDS) which is now down to its last seven weeks cash and where a bailout placing must be imminent.

The 30 most read articles in almost nine years as TomWinnifrith.com reaches a landmark of 3 million page views

Okay that is not a huge number. Despite being behind a paywall my main site, www.ShareProphets.com has achieved almost ten times as many reads in one fewer year. But some might be surprised that my ramblings on rebuilding and living in hovels in Greece and Wales, on life on both, on politics, on jokes and on all sorts of other matters, mainstream and obscure, get any readers at all. So this is a modest landmark. When this website started it was therapy for me at a very difficult time in my life and I’d be lucky to get 30 page impressions in a day.

Right now my main battle seems to be with the snitchers here in Snitcher-on-Dee where I take no prisoners again today - HERE.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: what would you ask Steve O'Hara?

The 98% of you yet to donate to rogue bloggers for Woodlarks will not have seen the offer made by Optibiotix (OPTI) boss Steve O’Hara. You can both see his offer and make a donation as you think of the misery that looms for Andrew Bell on 29 May HERE.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Optibiotics vs Skinbiotherapeutics

I start with a few words on the late Phil the Greek and reference an article I wrote exactly one month ago HERE on the liberal US celeb Joy Behar calling out Phil and his family as Nazis.  I reflect on the weather here in Wales and how tomorrow’s 20 mile training walk for Woodlarks will be very unpleasant indeed. So please do support me with a donation HERE.

Then the debate on whether to back the Skinbiotherapeutics (SBTX) or the Optibiotix (OPTI) charger?

I also beg you again to help Woodlarks – we are now just 7 Rogue Bloggers thanks to an injury and are just shy of £4,000 pledged - help get us over the £4,000 mark today HERE. The bulk of bearcast looks at the fraud [email protected] Capital (SYME) and the hard numbers which show what a joke its Singapore deal is. Anyone holding these shares is truly insane.

AsiaMet Resources- Is it run by total #ARS (es)? (TW Note, No! Peter is talking out of his ARS)

First it is Peter Brailey: My colleagues Tom Winnifrith and Gary Newman have provided opinion on the investment case of AsiaMet Resources (ARS) for some time. I think it is fair to say both see good potential upside. I remained on the fence watching. But I do see downside on the company’s social media strategy and I do not like it at all. It’s made me get off the fence – I will not invest until the company acts with a moral code I can agree with.

BREAKING: ShareProphets won't be around too much longer - Tom Winnifrith going to prison for 7 years with "unlimited fine"

Well you heard it here first. Actually you did not.As you can see below this report comes from an impeccable source: twitter where Jack Dorsey et al ALWAYS act to censor fake news so you can rely on twitter to give you the truth. Perhaps that is why 26 folks liked this tweet and 1 has retweeted it. Sadly for those 28 losers ( the author, RT and likes) this is demonstrable fantasy.


[email protected] Capital (SYMEshares were suspended by the FCA at my instigation, firstly for failing to publish accounts on time after it changed the year end to cover up lies it had told.  And then as the FCA started investigating those lies and many others, most notably its fraudulent prospectus in which it overstated net assets by 99% and its bogus 2020 interims in which it booked fake sales and its RNS of 28 September 2020 announcing more fake sales and director share dumping on the back of those lies.

This podcast is mainly on the pot bubble looking at Cellular Goods, Kanabo (KNB), Path Investments (PATH) and the odd goings on at Voyager CBD and strange share price moves ahead of today’s placing and Zoetic (ZOE). I also look at Bluebird Merchant Ventures (BMV), Yourgene (YGEN) and naughty Manc scallywag Dan Levi. Finally a comment or two on Scancell (SCLP). The Path/Voyager screenshot is below.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast - my first training walk for Woodlarks completed, the shame of it

I guess it was about seven miles that my daughter and I managed and it was terribly muddy so hard going but I am not in great shape. On the last Saturday in May I shall be doing 34 miles. I need to up the pace a bit. In the podcast I cover: AIQ (ASIQ), Online Blockchain (OBC), MyHealthChecked (MHC), Zoetic (ZOE), Kanobo (KNB) and Ariana Resources (AAU).

Tom Winnifrith employs hundreds of scammers in 12 "boiler rooms" - a true moron from ADVFN has fake news for you

The Patient Investor dwells in the asylum that is the ADVFN Bulletin Board and is quite literally mad. He appears to think, erroneously, that a boiler room is a place where teams of folks post on Bulletin Boards and apparently “knows” that I employ hundreds of folks in 12 distinct sites, each paid £10 an hour, to control share prices via BB postings. This is fake news of the highest order. Nurse! Nurse! The patient (investor) needs his meds upping fast! For starters: the idea that I’d pay anyone more than the minimum wage is preposterous! Just ask Steve Moore!

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Paul Scott is bang on the money

I will not make that joke about Paul, Lent starts tomorrow and my minimal alcohol intake will be going to zero until Easter. I may have a couple of glasses tonight to brace myself for a period of thirst that lies ahead. In this podcast I discuss Paul’s comments on [email protected] Capital (SYME) and why I think the FCA may not allow this fraud to relist. I look at Zoetic (ZOE) where I am hopeful of an imminent share suspension, and the pot and small cap bubble in general, also looking at today’s pot float, Kanabo (KNB).

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: This is for Cliff - the corruption of the press expose + Zoetic screwed by Path statement

This is for Cliff weight of ShareSoc. I discuss incidents in my life on Fleet Street showing the corrupt nexus between financial PRs and the press in action. I hope you all find it amusing as informative and relates to this fight I got into earlier today. Then it is onto Brokerman Dan who is a visionary analyst of health stocks, notably MyHealthChecked (MHC) as PL and I are agreed. Finally Zoetic (ZOE) has been exposed by an RNS today from Path Investments (PATH) which is damning. Its implications are clear, Zoetic is now mortally wounded; however, its evil PR spinners tried turd polishing earlier today.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: what can be done to stop corrupt and bad folks like Lucy Burton and Neil Woodford?

This podcast is all about the Woodford scandal of today. The corruption of the Sunday Telegraph in trading a scoop for dishonest journalism and the scandal that the disgraced fund manager may be back after less than 20 months of not screwing around with other folks’ cash. Why must people like Lucy and Neil be stopped and who will stop Neil? Lucy, I fear, is destined for great things in the corrupt world of the deadwood press.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: giving as good as I get to Craig from the Badger Trust

Craig has been stirred up by the trolls who harass me and my family and has now repeated the defamatory remark that I am encouraging others to harm the frightful pests. The Crime Officer at the Badger Trust is now also demanding that I rewrite articles though I have committed no crime. He is not apologising for making up false allegations about what I wrote.  He is picking on the wrong man on behalf of morons who own shares in Zoetic (ZOE) and [email protected] Capital (SYME). Does the Badger Trust really think that harassing a journalist whose only “crime” is exposing fraud, at the instigation of those supporting those frauds, is a good thing to do? I discuss both companies and the failings of Standard Listings with regards to frauds which they demonstrate in spades. I also look at house prices in London and here in the boonies.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: 2 stocks my pension bought today & the pot madness grows

Deep Throat has sent Winnileaks 2 confidential presentations for cannabis IPOs c.o low grade brokers Novum and Peterhouse. Novum bats for the Beckham linked Cellular Goods which I exposed here and it is so sleazy it includes a chart of the share price of the Zoetic (ZOE) fraud as a reason to buy. I discuss these companies as well as the Peterhouse play, Spinnaker Opportunies (SPO). If that opportunity knocks, I’ll pass. I look at Remote Monitored Systems (RMS) and discuss the two shares I bought and why: Red Rock Resources (RRR) and AEX Gold (AEXG).

I am sorry for a bad tip but I drank my own medicine and I will almost certainly average down in the morning in AEX Gold (AEXG). I explain why. Then I look at 88 Energy (88E) at Abingdon Healthcare (ABDX) where I disagree with the leading commentator in our comments section. I comment on the most expensive, shuttered, bars in London at Nightcap (NGHT), on Verditek (VDTK) and give you a taster of the next Zoetic (ZOE) bombshell.

The Battle for free speech – let’s get Tom Winnifrith the badger killer sent to jail

The battle for free speech is hotting up. I have just published a piece HERE on attempts to shut down a new TV channel before it goes on air because its founders are not part of the woke establishment. Meanwhile, a few days ago I expressed my hatred for the badgers living at the Welsh Hovel here. Mistakenly I also outlined a plan to get rid of them which, I now understand is against the law. Suddenly, on certain bulletin boards and on twitter, badgers are seen as the nation’s favourite animal and I am off to jail.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: A former bank robber pisses on Supply & Zoetic shareholders from the moral high ground

Thank you Brokerman Dan for supportive words, you are always welcome at the Welsh Hovel and indeed my son often asks when you are coming again. But when a self confessed ex con pisses on folks, like certain shareholders in [email protected] Capital (SYME) and Zoetic (ZOE) from the moral high ground, you know such folks dwell in the moral sewers. I discuss the reaction to today’s Zoetic bombshell and what happens next. I also look at Big Dish (DISH), Agronomics (ANIC), Dev Clever (DEV), Bidstack (BIDS) and Verditek (VDTK) speculating on the bailout placing prices at 2 of those 5. Then I discuss Bacanora Lithium (BCN) where I might be tempted to have a punt.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: I apologise to Zak Mir, he is a total genius and certainly did not kill little Maddie

I start by flagging up that I aim to publish an 85 page dossier,m an opus magnus, on a the sort of company Zak Mir promotes at 8.30 AM tomorrow behind the paywall. I see it as a zero. Then I discuss why Zak is, contrary to some suggestions here otherwise, a total and utter genius  who did not kill Maddie and then look at his analysis of Jubilee Metals (JLP). I move on to why I’ve bought more shares in AEX Gold (AEXG) before looking at the nest of snakes at Dev Clever (DEV) its bonkers valuation and why it must collapse. I reference this excellent expose of that nest of snakes. I look at investor grief and what is happening at [email protected] Capital (SYME) and what will happen – and when – at Dev.

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

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Wellesley investors have only themselves to blame & what now for SYME after today's dynamite expose

I start with ShareSoc backing an investor action group at bust mini bond outfit Wellseley. I warned folks explicity about this almost two years ago HERE and many times thereafter so have scant sympathy. I discuss the role of the floor shitters at the FCA in this debacle. That brings me to [email protected] Capital (SYME) after today’s dynamite expose HERE. The email is genuine. I ask what next? Finally I discuss comments by populists seeking cheap love, such as shamed Neil Woodford promoter Jeff PressTrip of the Mail on Sunday and Nigel Farage, about GameStop. Do they both really support bubbles and capital misallocation?

Meanwhile I reflect on a video I have recorded with the great Dominic Frisby which goes live tomorrow, I hope, and on news that Kwasi Kwarteng might just take action to stop directors lying to investors. I then explain why Redditt groups exposed HERE and HERE in the UK are, in reality, just pump and dump schemes, why they will not deliver another GameStop and why most folks following them will do their conkers. It will end in tears and, I hope, jail time and won’t “burn the shorters”  or Fuck The London Stock Exchange, as the organisers promise, at all.

Then it is onto an article by Harriet Dennys in the Mail on Sunday on NightCap (NGHT), the AIM baby of Sarah Willingham of Dragon’s Den which could go bust by July. The article is so bad, so full of massive factual errors and so utterly misleading that it is easily the worst piece of financial journalism I’ve seen so far this year. And that includes articles by Zak Mir. Seriously, writing this sort of bollocks does have consequences.

Then onto [email protected] Capital (SYME) shareholders chatting about having me killed and the wider issues it raises.

I start with the new nickname for baby Jaya and why I am double sleep deprived. Men of my age really should not be fathering babies. Then to the great news, I have spoken to Chris Bailey and he is recovered and plans to start writing again this week. I discussed gold, inflation, market madness with Chris and relay our thoughts. Then I ask you to consider your mask wearing habits and discuss Remote Monitored Solutions (RMS). Finally can you top £150 for a bid for something worth 2 Euro which will not arrive for 6 months? Please do so before midnight HERE.  And the reason I may need to seek asylum in England is explained HERE.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: it's all about management - Richard Gollum Gill, me, the late Stephen Dean, Nigel Wray, Oisin Fanning and Neill Ricketts

Have I judged Oisin Fanning of San Leon (SLE) by a different standard to, say, Neill Ricketts of Versarien (VRS)? Sure. Would I not judge, for instance, Cheryl Cole by a different standard in the looks department than, say, Diane Abbott? Yes I would. And I bet Cheryl is also better at singing, counting and more or less everything else than Ms Abbott too. Management is key to it all in the world of investing as I discuss today.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast - waiting with Joshua for the snow

Of course, here in Wales, you can get Covid from sledging but Joshua and I will risk it and as the first snow fell today his excitement was off the scale. Sadly the snow has not lasted. Fingers crossed for tonight. In the podcast I discuss tips of the year contests ( as opposed to our 22 tips of the year) and laugh at Justin Urquhart-Stewart. I look at two reasosn the bulls spout for bullishness and discuss. And i look at executive turnover and greed among FTSE 100 fat cats.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Happy Brexit has been done New Year to you all

I mean it. happy New Year to you all especially our own in house Euro loon Jonathan Price who will be in tears at 11 PM Tonight. I shall not be! In this podcast I discuss the FCA and today’‘s mini-bond calamity in waiting, [email protected] Capital (SYME) and the Marwyn vehicle (MAC1) where Vin Murria is now on board but where it seems impossible to buy shares. That’s not much fun is it? Vin: how about a Primary Bid offer for we plebs?  I also lash out at Priti Patel and the Tories for blowing off the public sector while the private sector is screwed. I thought that is what Labour was for.

The Top 30 Most-Read Articles on TomWinnifrith.com in 2020

Then should we all jump on board Malcolm Stacey’s green shite bandwagon and abandon any “dirty” old world plays? You see it is not as simple as the old guy claims. Do you remember when he was telling us all to buy Radio stocks back in 1927?

Tom Winnifrith Christmas Bearcast: This is the scandal that MUST sink London's worst Nomad Roland "Fatty" Cornish

This is all to do with events at Octagonal (OCTdescribed earlier. When did Fatty know? The answer is that thanks to a whistleblower it was eons ago. But it is what he did about it that is the real scandal and why AIM Regulation must drum him out of the City PDQ if it is to maintain any sort of pretence that AIM is a credible market. PS. Merry Christmas to one and all, even Fatty.

Meet investor Sonic the Dog who fantasises about beating me to death and abuses my wife and baby daughter

It seems that Sonic is another anonymous keyboard warrior, too cowardly to reveal her or his identity and who thinks that if he or she abuses me, my wife and baby daughter and threatens me, he or she might save the cons he or she is invested in, such as [email protected] Capital (SYME). Asking who the father of my baby daughter is, manages to insult me, the Mrs and Jayarani. Normally this individual just sticks to me and fantasises about beating me to death. You kind of wonder whether Sonic shares his or her keyboard activities with his or her employer and partner. I guess they would be really proud of Sonic.

Photo Article: Reflections on Christmas cards at the Welsh Hovel

Before I start, I must confess that I stand guilty of gross hypocrisy. My preference, as long-term readers know, is for Christmas cards to be somehow related to why we are all having a holiday on December 25 even if we are not celebrating Christmas. That is to say the birth of Jesus.  But this year the card I sent out was of a snowman. My excuse was that it was designed by Joshua at his nursery. Last year, I failed almost as badly with the card being of a tree. It too was designed by Joshua but at his playgroup in Wales so the message was very much Nadolig Llawen. Okay, so I am a hypocrite. Next up: a confession of very minor sexism.

Meanwhile Dr Doom is now a bull. we discuss sharers, bonds, real estate, bitcoin and gold in a must listen to interview.

BREAKING: Octagonal – another departure from the AIM casino and more egg on face for Britain’s most useless FD Nilesh Jagatia

You cannot say that I have not warned you all so many times that Octagonal (OCT) would end in tears. Corporate Governance and related party deals involving boss John Gunn were shocking and Nilesh Jagatia is, without doubt, the worst FD on the AIM casino. Today came news of a delisting and the shares have collapsed by almost 70% to just 0.7p. I do hope that the Bulletin Board Morons who knew so much better than useless old Tom Winnifrith, were well lubed up.

Then I look at Vin Murria’s Summerway Capital (SWC) and explain why you are not too late even at 1.65p. then a look  at AFC Energy (AFC) and my new policy on dealing with abusive trolls. I discuss Fox Marble (FOX) and averaging down and then the scandal that is Remote Monitoring Systems (RMS) gets even worse. Surely the Oxymorons must investigate.

Liam Murray of Cairn looks after the ultimate Penny Dreadful, Catenae (CTEA). Then I return to Sarah Willingham’s NightJar and why she is destroying value for morons who pony up £6 million for the IPO on day 1. This is a scandal and Nomad Allenby should be ashamed.

In prior years I have penned a three part Christmas carol featuring a villain of the year: Rob Terry, Neil Woodford and Chris Oil have starred. So please nominate your villain of 2020 for this year’s opus magnus below. In the podcast I discuss the IPO of Sarah Willingham’s company Nightcap on a day when most of its bars go into tier 3. She is ‘avin’ a giraffe. There are other red flags and questions to ask. Then I look at Jubilee Metals (JLP) and Bahamas Petroleum (BPC) asking if, on AIM, anyone gives a toss about the law of the land. Finally I look at Dignity (DTY) where i retain grave concerns.

Then it is the strange tale of Calisen (CLSN), Goldman talking woke nonsense and finaly BBC #fakenews on cheddar cheese prices and why my grandfather, Sir John Winnifrith, was right in 1975 and why food prices, therefore, could and should fall from January 1.

Then it is onto Anglesey Mining (AYM), those A Grade knaves at Iconic (ICON) and a detailed look at the ramptastic news from cash strapped Corero (CNS) and my analysis of why it is a) overvalued and b) going to run out of other folks’ money ( again) in Q2 2021.

As the grandson of a Bennite campaigner against the EU, I will have no Islington based fucktard lecture me about why I voted to leave. But I discuss the dire warnings in today’s papers about what may lie ahead.

Tom Winnifrith Podcast: the betrayal of our children as academia moves to a BLM History GCSE

The tide is turning against a radical Black Lives Matter Agenda as I demonstrated here yesterday. But there are last redoubts manned by members of the liberal elites who are determined to push this agenda. Academia is one such redoubt and there are moves to make history GCSE more BLM friendly. I discuss two of the changes proposed from Tudor England and Nazi Germany and deal with actual facts and try to put them into context. I also explain why this patronising nonsense is divisive, insulting to folks such as the Jews and the Roma and also fails to tell our kids of all colours who they are which is surely what history is all about. Of course the Government can stop it. If only we had a Conservative Government.

But it will still cost a few quid…

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast - passing a 100% meaningless 25m landmark

Zoom Recording of the funeral of Tom Winnifrith (my father)

A few folks have asked if there was a recording of the zoom version of my father’s funeral on Thursday. It is not perfect but there is one and it is below. The first 13 minutes show some of the 100 folks who zoomed just waiting. The service begins at c12 minutes. The recording does not do justice to the singing of the choir, essentially the family of my sister T whose husband is the singer James Gilchrist. But, for those who are interested, I hope you can take in a bit of what happened. Before the service, the hearse stopped outside Dad’s house and the family walked behind it to the church. The whole street stood silent in respect which my father would have appreciated very much.

Finally I look, in real detail (hence the length of this podcast), at Guild Esports (GILD) which was much hy;ped by the deadwood press at its IPO a few weeks ago partly because David Beckham was investing in it. I expose why that is so utterly misleading, Becks will make a killing from this IPO but I suggest mug punters will not. This whole thing stinks.

I am not calling it yet but I move my prediction from too close to call to still tight but leaning to Sleepy Joe. It is his to lose now. Correction: the debate host was from Fox not CNN – as stated inh the podcast – but is a known Trump hater and his clear partiality was all too evident.

Now I turn to events from August 2017 to October 2018 which did not start to come to light until June 2019 and show, with regard to the WES operation, industrial scale deception by the company, before and during a fund raise which also involved misleading investors. AIM Regulation needs to suspend these shares pending an independent investigation into every claim Verditek has ever made since the repeated nature of its deceptions is now just too great to ignore.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: If what we did today is not illegal it will be tomorrow

Yes we enjoyed a 4th birthday party. I consider this, the Government’s next steps to attack Covid, the furlough scheme and where the economy is going. I also look at crony capitalist Reg Hoare and his defence of the indefensible at Science Group (SAG).

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: can you assist me in unpicking Innovate UK - I smell a massive fraud on we the UK taxpayer

I may be in the gulags of Merthyr Tydfil by tomorrow night so if there is no Monday bearcast, you know why. I look at abuse of furlough and how some folks want this madness to continue and then at the Government’s bonkers demands of the EU to allow it to hand out vast sums to British companies. In that vein, I flag up my latest expose of Innovate UK HERE. I sense this scandal is massive and will grow. If any of you are bored and want to assist uncovering it, the relevant link is HERE.

Tom Winnifrith Video Shareshow No 10: Almost 3 hours of Andrew Bell, Matt Earl of Boohoo infamy and myself on more red flags from the liars at Verditek

And now from Wales, by just 30 yards, it is my new, I hope, weekly video show. This costs 99p per episode, and you can either listen to, or watch, some sparky interviews with bear raider Matt Earl on the markets, the real economy and on 2 stocks where he is short (IQE & Boohoo) and one where he might be soon (Future PLC). we focus on Boohoo. There is also a detailed interview with Andrew Bell of Red Rock Resources (RRR). Its shares are 0.82p and what Bell says is ground breaking. I am on record as saying I shall eat my hat on video if the shares are not 1.26p before Christmas. I now reckon 1.65p is achievable and this is explained very clearly. Finally I return to the liars at Verditek (VDTK), why it is drowning in red flags and more. You can access the show HERE

Or rather don’t.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Bidstack's countdown to next bailout placing

It is bad news for gender fluid, Bidstack (BIDS) owning, journalist-defaming moron Mike Turner - the countdown to the next bailout placing is underway. I crunch the numbers and speculate on what boss Lyin’ James Draper will do about it. After that I consider Verditek (VDTK) and its growing catalogue of lies and also warn Innovate UK that I am on its case as I have been alerted to another of its grant scandals. Finally I consider two companies that are desperate to be bid for but which, I suspect, will not be: Audioboom (BOOM) and Eurasia Mining (EUA).

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Maybe I was wrong (it happens now and again) on AEX Gold

I start with a London millionaire slating me for being an Alt Right billionaire. I am neither but our in-house Euro loon Jonathan Price is a peculiar fellow. I look at the madness at Vela (VELA), at Future (FUTR) and its trading statement (a win so far for Mark Slater vs Matt Earl), at what Verditek (VDTK) did NOT say, and at AEX Gold (AEXG) where the CEO is 13, or at least looks it, but I may have been a bit harsh before.

Sorry to the in-house Euro loon Jonathan Price who reckons that my interest in the US election is excessive but two new polls yesterday cast further light on the races in Pennsylvania and Florida which  as I noted yesterday  are two of the three states that will decide the election. I discuss this and then Justin Urquhart Stewart on gold where he gets his numbers so wrong that I am more bullish than I was as I think this tells you something of wider import. Finally onto my good mate the Sith Lord Zak Mir, a chap called Carl Linton who is a plumber and heating engineer, and the current mood of market craziness.

My new video show is live and if you have a spare three hours it is, if I say so myself, a total belter and can be watched HERE. I then discuss the US election and am ready to call all bar three states: Pennsylvania, Florida and Michigan. I believe that the maths are that Trump will have to win all three to win. there are three others I am calling but with a low degree of certainty ( Ohio for Trump, Wisconsin and Minnesota for Biden). I discuss what will swing the three uberswing states and where things stand now but also what financial betting markets tell us. Then trolling of me by morons, this time owning [email protected] Capital (SYME) hits a new low. I discuss these sad creatures and how they motivate me to dig even more.

I start with musings on croquet hoops, something I am geekish enough to comment on, and how it is symbolic of our age. I wander on to consider the craziest job creation scheme in history but one which the mainstream media takes seriously… back to crazy croquet hoops. Then it is news that Capita is closing offices where 15,000 work and the Government’s barking mad plans and pleas to reverse this tide. Finally, the response of Alessandro Zamboni of [email protected] Capital (SYME) to me terming his company a con and saying he should be in jail. Other than his stupidity in telling an obvious lie, Sam Antar, the king of the fraudsters, would be proud of him.

This is the last straw and sends out such an appalling message about doing business in Britain.

I examine what the polls say in detail, debunk a right-wing conspiracy theory and look at the four key variables that will determine the outcome and, bad news for the liberal media, all four trends are playing Trump’s way.

And now from Wales, by just 30 yards, it is my new, I hope, weekly video show. This costs 99p per episode, and you can either listen to, or watch, some sparky interviews with Richard Poulden on gold and where it goes next, on the US election but also on Wishbone Gold (WSBN) as it takes a new direction. As a long suffering shareholder, down £30,000, I have a few tough questions. Then I discuss what gold stocks I am buying before chatting to Steve Moore, a man with whom I have worked for all bar a few weeks of his working life. He is this year 38! Frightening. I started the show with a suggestion that we all look back to the 1970s. I end with a look at corporate lying and why it is on the rise and why no-one cares but that will change. Verditek (VDTK) is a case study here. You can access the show HERE

Then I ask if Luke Johnson or I am more sociable and what this means about folks stopping working from home.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: A sincere and heartfelt apology to that brilliant analyst Mr David Lenigas

It is now only four days to my 7th Wedding Anniversary. Given my track record I reckon that merits a round of applause. After you have finished the applause, I will apologise to Mr David Lenigas. If I have ever given the impression that he is a shameless ramper of worthless penny stocks, having considered his recent tweets on Wishbone Gold (WSBN) where my losses are now down to a mere £27,500, I would like to apologise. I now accept that Mr Lenigas provides quite brilliant and clear analysis of undervalued gold juniors and we should be profoundly grateful for his services. Elsewhere, I look at Avacta (AVCT), Novacyt (NCYT), Scancell (SCLP), Rurelec (RUR) and Amigo (AMGO).

Tom Winnifrith podcast: Rule Britannia, lies, the BBC and what it all really means in a historic context

This podcast is dedicated to my friend and a man who for more than 30 years has been a key figure in my life and for whom my admiration and love knows no bounds. That man is William Long, who lies gravely ill in a New York hospital. We might disagree on much, but on the need to call out a lie and on the imperative of original historic research and putting matters within that context we will always agree on. I thus discuss the BBC, Last Night of the Proms, what Rule Britannia actually means and refers to, its historic context, some of its critics and what motivates them and allows them to smell out racism and imperialism without reference to actual fact. I refer also to my article on Thomas Guy, another man facing erasure as we do not teach anyone our nation’s history nor care about the actual facts of it. Mentioned in this podcast are The Mrs, the great Neil Masuda, Laurence Fox, Tony Hall, Matthew Hopkins, and his true heir today Kehinde Andrews.

I start with a brief discussion of Rule Britannia where it is clear that the BBC and others (including the Mrs) have not actually read the words or studied their history. I will do a much longer piece on this when back from seeing my father in Shipston. I look at Asimilar (ASLR), All Active Asset Capital (AAA), Mesh PLC, and Chris Akers – a scandal where the unravel is surely underway. I comment on DFS (DFS) and furlough economics, on Iconic Labs (ICON), and on Amigo (AMGO) as well as on Xtract Resources (XTR), where there is yet more good news making you who followed my tip and I who bought shares even richer. Also covered is NoGold who has no gold exposure and lambasts me for tipping gold shares and making you all richer… even more of a miserable old git.

Yes it is corrupt to claim that with 60 articles a year you are chasing Neil Woodford when you were for two decades his greatest cheerleader on Fleet Street. Jess Press-trip ignored ALL the warnings and kept on urging Mail on Sunday readers to average down on Woodford funds. He should hold his head in shame. He demands transparency over Woodford, I demand transparency from him so have 4 questions the loathsome reptile will not answer. I also look at bent PR led journalism at the Sunday Times ref BT (BT.) Then it is onto Reach4Entertainment (R4E) where the FCA and AIM Regulation should be all over the company, its CEO Marc Boyan and chairman Lord Grade.

I start this bonus bearcast prompted by your emails and comments while I started to make some Damson Jam with Joshua with a few comments on the wisdom or otherwise of averaging down with reference to Wishbone Gold (WSBN). Then I look at NoGold’s claim ( poor fellow having no gold exposure of late) that gold is being driven higher by herd behaviour. Finally I am told that Messrs Andrew Bell (Red Rock Resources -RRR), Colin Bird (Xtract esources – XTR, and others) and Harry Adams (Kefi) are only looking like heros, rather than zeros as has been the case for many years,  because gold is going higher. Referencing also Mr Kerim Sener of Ariana Resources (AAU) I discuss this and the nature of investing in mining stocks.

I look at Plutus Powergen (PPG) in detail, and also at share trades that have happened but others that are not happening which explain why [email protected] Capital is shaping up to be such a scandal and one where the FCA has disgraced itself by its actions and is still disgracing itself by its inactions.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Explaining to Pierotlunaire why he and Warren Buffett really do exist

I start with this explanation which relates to events at Eqtec (EQT). By the way is PL really saying that some investors were given information that the market and other participants in the placing did not have ahead of the placing? For that is what he posted on the comments section. Surely that too is a bit naughty? I then move onto Nigel Somerville’s purchase of Golden Prospect Precious Metals (GPM) and discuss that before turning to the shocking behaviour of the CMA with respect to funeral pricing which appears to give providers – including Dignity (DTY) – a license to overcharge going forward. That is dead wrong and a grave error that surely cannot be allowed to continue?

Then it is onto our major expose of securities fraud at Verditek (VDTK) today, where it seems that Old Mother Walters is again batting for the company with a bonkers market cap, no sales, which lies to investors, and which is technically insolvent. What’s not to like? Oh yes, and the company’s chairman is a former Tory MP. More red flags than at the May Day rally in Moscow.

Richard Jennings of Align defends his bonkers valuation of BlueBird Merchant Ventures

I have shares in Bluebird (BMV) and think that at 4.25p they are cheap. They should, IMHO, be trading at 6p and might get into double figures if it can resolve issues with its Aussie, soon to be ex, partners in Korea. But a 34.79p target price, a 69p DCF valuation, is insane as I explained in detail in bearcast yesterday HERE. But that is the target price of Align Research, which owns almost 4% of the shares, and its boss Richard Jennings wants to defend that viewpoint and being a fair man I allow him to do so.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: I will appear in court for PWC if asked to defend £63m joke Quindell claim

I start with a few notes on Covid hysteria, referring you to my earlier piece on perceived death rates HERE but also to research showing how pointless wearing face nappies is HERE. I look at R4E (R4E) and how Richard Jennings asks me to explain why Dr Green’s valuation of Bluebird Merchant (BMV) is a joke. I am a Good German and oblige. The shares, which I own, are – I believe – very cheap, but the analysis of Green is piss poor. Indeed it is so piss poor that the journalist-smearing old bastard should be fired at once. I look at Watchstone (WTG), Quindell as was, and its £63 million claim against PriceWaterhouseCoopers filed in the High Court today. I shall happily give evidence for PWC. I comment on Avacta (AVCT), Versarien (DOG), and Red Emperor (RMP).

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: drilling into the shocking accounts of broker Novum and is this the crazy broker note that marks peak gold madness?

The note I refer to is from Align on Bluebird Merchant Ventures (BMV). I agree the shares are cheap. I own some! But are they as cheap as the note suggests? Nope. It is bonkers. I discuss its author and other peak cycle bonkers notes etched in my brain. I look at R4E (R4E) and why you should not follow Fraud. Then at the accounts from troubled broker Novum which came out yesterday. They are truly shocking and get a full debagging from me. I comment on Hammerson (HMSO) and illusory asset values and on Simec Atlantic (SAE) and – en passant – Hurricane Energy (HUR).

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Metro did not throw the kitchen sink at anything!

I end with a view from my office photo just to annoy Graham Neary. I also comment on the latest bonkers ideas from Boris about how to cripple the economy. Those are relevant as I discuss the assumptions made by Metro Bank (MTRO) and its Godawful results. Who is it trying to kid? It has certainly not thrown in the kitchen sink in terms of provisioning. There is far worse to come when the banking crisis really gets going. I discuss gold and ask those with a knowledge of cocaine to help Lucian out with a new valuation metric. I look at Centamin (CEY) and am not persuaded there is a new normal to justify a sub 4% prospective yield.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: My anger at R4E, my sympathy for Graham Neary & my question about Centamin

I do not wish to fall out with Nigel Wray and I do not really blame him for the Reach4Entertainment (R4E) news today but I explain my anger. Then I explain my sympathy for Graham Neary. Next up, results from Centamin (CEY) are great for we loyal shareholders but I ask what is the appropriate yield? Then onto Xtract Resources (XTR) and a phone call from Colin Bird. Treat the “Ford dip” as an opportunity!

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Black swan event at Bluebird

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: masks in Manchester to a water deprived Kambos and the Greek Hovel

I will start writing up my Greek diary tomorrow when I feel a bit more rested after the travel. But in this podcast, I give you a taster of a few of my thoughts and of life here in Kambos where I shook a man’s hand for the first time in months yesterday. I also look at the latest Covid madness from bonkers Boris and at BP (BP.) and the question of its dividend. Of course it should be slashed and if it is, I’d expect the shares to bounce.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: The Piss Poor Daily Telegraph predicts a roaring twenties...this is why it's totally wrong

I start with how Boris is wrecking the UK economy. I truly despair. Then I discuss the daft comparison with the years that followed Spanish flu. I then move onto the growing banking crisis. Finally, I discuss the idea that industries will change 100% to avoid human contact. I explain why this is not the case with reference to an industry I know well, investor shows. The maths does not stack up and most humans, though not me natch, are social creatures. There is a lot of hot money betting on the world changing completely. It will not.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Is Cineworld now a slam dunk zero thanks to blundering Boris?

My wife’s young cousin – L – and her young man will arrive shortly to our house to cat sit and the Mrs, Joshua, and I can head to the Greek Hovel. I wonder what Covid restrictions there are in Greece and how they will be applied? Here in the UK, BoJo has new rules and I ponder if they will mean the death of Cineworld (CINE).  On the subject of death, I discuss Versarien (VRS) and also its moronic shareholders and why ADVFN (AFN) scores an own goal in not banning them. I look at Coro Energy (DOG) and also International Consolidated Airlines (IAG), British Airways as was.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Versarien, Lanstead, Innovate UK - chapter & verse on what is being hidden and what Nomad SP Angel MUST do next

There are breaches of TR1 rules and a lack of transparency on Versarien’s (VRS) cash position. We need clarity, and that clarity will demonstrate why the £5 million UK taxpayer loan is 100% illegal. I move from one dog to two others: Iconic (ICON) and [email protected] Capital (SYME) before offering some price targets on Ariana (AAU) where I am a very happy shareholder.

Tom Winnifrith Shareshow Number 7: Two and a half hours on gold as it hits record high, what to buy or should I play the "green revolution" instead?

And now from Wales, by just 30 yards, it is my new, I hope, weekly video show. This costs 99p per episode, and you can either listen to, or watch some sparky interviews with Nigel Somerville on gold and where it goes next, on how to play the gold bull market, what stocks to buy and what non stocks to buy and how a gold bug positions the rest of his portfolio. Then Paul Atherley from a non gold miner, Pensana Rare Earths (PRE), a play on all this green shit everyone – bar me – seems to love. And I explain why I have bought Pensana shares even though I think man-made global warming is utter bunkum. Finally two stocks where the valuation is insane: Dev Clever (DEV) and Trainline (TRN). You can access the show HERE

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Explaining to Shipston's Buffett why he is not so smart after all & Mahmud does the right thing at Boohoo

A brief and early bearcast today, as I am heading off to Shipston to see my dad and with reference to the sterling price of gold, I have to explain why he is not quite as clever as he thinks. Then it is off to near the Coronavirus hotspot of Leicester to buy an antique wood burning stove. What exciting lives Joshua and I lead. I discuss where next for gold and why companies with no proven resource can be a play on gold & silver prices but are really just a gamble. I cite Alien Metals (UFO) as a case study. What a terrible dog. Then it is onto Mahmud Kamani, Boohoo.com (BOO), the slave labour allegations and today’s news. I read it as bad for the bears and good for Mahmud.

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

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

Tom Winnifrith postcard: A journey through England as Coronavirus madness stalks the land in July 2020

I start with some family memories from 1893. I hope that my son and his grandchildren are able to look back to these family memories from July 2020 and laugh. I fear they may cry. I consider a journey that my son and I made yesterday from a village by the Dee in Wales to South Warwickshire, to Ratby near Leicester and back to Wales again. I consider the madness of quarantines, vaccine orders and masks, of thousands of suicides, early cancer deaths and of economic ruin. I consider the complicity of the entire mainstream media and political classes and the madness of GroupThink. We will look back on this with true horror.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: how to value a near zero revenue Green Zeitgeist play like AFC and will a banking crisis sink the Alison Rose?

AFC Energy (AFC) is the debate of the day and I start with a few thoughts on the problems of valuation. I end with another zeitgeist theme – the self-entitlement of the public sector and where that leaves we wealth creators. In my case, it is thanking God that retirement is not that far away!. In between, I ponder whether we will have a full blown banking crisis to dethrone folks like Alison Rose, the virtue signalling poltroon running NatWest, and other top banksters.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: It's all about cash as the real economy tanks

I move via International Consolidated Airlines (AIG) as I discuss just how awful the real economy is, how no-one, especially Intercontinental, has any earnings visibility and the steps companies are taking to maximise cash but to mislead about their cash position. I mentioned Primary Bid. Make sure you are registered HERE.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Journalist-smearing motherfuckers Citigate Dewe Rogerson & FastJet Edition

I have been waiting for this day for a long while. I hope that comrade Graham Neary has a glass (or seven) of Black Velvet over in Ireland tonight. I shall have an ouzo as I enjoy some karma heading to the - journalist-smearing – fascist PR bastards at Citigate. I should warn you that this podcast contains some bad language as I consider the AIM demise of Fastjet (FJET). I laugh at a rumour about Ascent Resources (AST) and the whore blogger Malcolm Graham Wood and I consider the laughable plans of the pathetic nanny state regime of Bojo to tackle obesity.  I also look at Cineworld (CINE), R4E (R4E) and [email protected] Capital (SYME), three firms I fear are in the merde. And did I mention that Citigate Dewe Rogerson are a bunch of journalist-smearing motherfuckers whose comprehensive lack of ethics I shall toast with ouzo tonight?

I discuss historic death threats I have received. Elsewhere, I have more words on Lenigas PLC and frenzied activity in gold.

I have more on last night’s breaking news HERE on Lenigas PLC and offer a challenge to Dave Lenigas. Is he man or mouse? Or just a chicken? C’mon Dave what have you to fear? Then I look at Eve Sleep (EVE) and wider issues on the stated cash position of PLCs, then at 2 gold miners both of whose shares are up today. One, Altus Strategies (ALS) still looks cheap, the other, Cobra (COBR), sends off the wrong signal with today’s news which I view as a spoof.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: this is the final straw Boris, you can all kick me in the nuts if I ever vote Tory again

It is we in the private sector that have suffered the massive economic pain of the Government’s blundering on Covid. It is the private sector that will eventually create the jobs and wealth to pay for it. So what is Boris doing? Landing us with a bigger bill to pay so he can reward Doctors ( the top 2% of earners), taking the fucking knee Policeman and the bedwetting stay at home teachers. Fuck you Boris, this is the final straw, you and I are done. After thar brief message from a, now, Plaid Cymru supporter, I look at healthcare bubbles, Aids and Covid, at Midatech Pharma (MTPH), Audioboom (BOOM), Conroy Gold (CGNR), IQE (IQE) and Bidstack (BIDS).

With regard to the last of the three I mention Jubilee Metals (JLP), in which I bought some more shares today. I also discuss the “it’s too good to be true” rule ref Amigo (AMGO)

But broader questions about cancellations and refunds remain unanswered. I discuss this and then a chat with Lucian Miers which covered the markets, Wizz Air (WIZZ) and Carnival (CCL). I look at Trafalgar (TRAF), Katoro Gold (KAT), Victoria (VCP) and Elecosoft (ELCO).

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: My local Tory MP in Wrexham has gone too far - she is utterly infuriating

The latest tweet from my local Tories just pushes me too far. These folks live on another planet. I start by discussing the tweet below and why it makes me so angry. The bosses at Escape Hunt (ESC) should be, like Sarah Atherton MP (Con), be sent to the gulags of Merthyr Tydfil and I explain why. I look at UK Oil & Gas (UKOG), Red Rock Resources (RRR), Power Metal Resources (POW) and Versarien (VRS) ahead of next Tuesday.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Julie "Lingerie on Expenses" Meyer and Drive software masterclass in red flags & aggressive accounting

Julie is back and since she seeks press coverage and is also seeking investment into a new great British Company she is, in my view, fair game for comment. No doubt she will accuse me of misogony, obsession and try to get the fine upstanding lawyers she shares with Prince Andrew to harass me (remember what happened last time Julie!) but what follows is a case study in red flag spotting and how to read through aggressive and unusual accounts.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: the answer to too much debt cannot be even more debt

I start with two points of order on my next premium podcast (out later tonight) and on July 18 ( more details tomorrow). Then I look at Walcom (WALG) and lessons learned, Tomco (TOM) and lessons not being learned as who gives a flying wotsit about criminality on AIM, and at Cineworld (CINE) where there are four reasons to stay short.

A reminder, July 18 keep it free. I first discuss the latest ideas of Rishi Sunak to revive the real economy and point out the problems and contradictions. Then I consider Zak Mir’s cunning plan to make a killing on the stockmarket and a variant of the Sith Lord’s wheeze suggested to me by a private client stockbroker. Will it end in tears?

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Why is any shop at all paying a cent in rent & Keep July 18 free

I have an announcement. Please keep July 18 free. All is explained in this podcast. Then I discuss the fraud Wirecard and the cult of the “star fund manager.” It seems that only 20% of shops will pay their rent on June 30th? Are the 20% mad? Why would anyone pay. I look at what this all means for the three parties at play: retailers, landords and banks.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: the lies, the crimes, the shame in the sewer at Tomco and Iconic

If only to protect themselves folks at Turner Pope and Shard Capital need to take urgent action. There is clear insider dealing and crime evident at Tomco (TOM) as more than 100% of the issued share capital looks set to change hands today. At Iconic (ICON) I detail lie, after lie after pointless fecking lie relating to an RNS of 12 September 2019 – will my pal Damon Heath do the decent thing and pull the plug?

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Eric Platt a snotgobbler in short trousers from the FT vs Warren Buffett

I start with a few words on the hard working, courageous and heroic teachers. Then it is Barry the Tit from Turner Pope who cannot read and insults the professionalism of Gary Newman but raises a wider point about how AIM and brokerages operate. Barry is a tit but I regard his employer as Best of Breed although if I had my way the breed would not exist if the Casino was run according to new rules I suggest. Finally a look at the idea from Eric “snotgobbler” Platt of the Financial Times that the greatest living investor, Mr Warren Buffett, might be past his sell by date.  Hat tip on the last point to Jim Mellon.

I promise you pictures of my 99 now planted strawberry plants later and I also have good news from the orchard.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: daring to consider the chances of being killed by lightning in America

I start with a few thoughts on the protests and riots following the murder of an African American man by a cop. I offer up some hard data which makes me ask whether the riots can be justified. I stress that, as someone who goes to sleep with a person of colour every night and with a mixed race son, I do think that black lives matter, including those six black lives now taken by US rioters . I comment on Woodlarks where we are now at 55% of target so please please make a donation today HERE.

I only ask each of you for a tenner but how about every bearcast listener donates that TODAY so we hit target. Please give HERE. Then I look at my friend Jonathan Price’s article about why I am wrong on property plays. Euro loon Jonathan is a great chap though utterly misguided on almost every issue as only an elitist London millionaire can be and I clarify matters. Then onto Curzon Energy (CZN): I am a long and wrong shareholder and explain why I think the shares are too high and why a statement is needed ASAP. A few words follow on SSP Group (SSPG) and today’s dividend placing madness.

Drunken Sailor who is suffering a GroupThink induced lockdown dementia thinks so and also that I am a ramper and should tell folks to sell. I discuss Drunken’s concerns in light of a chat with O’Hara and an email from him which I read out.

I refer, of course, to smokers. Before Malcolm gets on his high horse, hear me out. What I say is logical if a bit crazy.

I start with Catenae Innovation (CTEA), Tern (TERN), Clear Leisure (CLP) and Attis Oil & Gas (AOGL). I also discuss the crazy idea of buying FinnCap (FCAP) shares.

BREAKING: Tom Winnifrith yet again commended by regulator: The FRC thanks him on Diversified Gas & Oil

Here is another commendation for me for my pig ignorant critics on the Bulletin Boards and supporters of fraud to ignore. One day, maybe even Roger Lawson and certain thirsty share bloggers from Brighton might actually be forced to admit that the folks who matter not only respect my work but act on it too. This tme it concerns what was the largest oil company on AIM before it moved to the main market, Diversified Gas & Oil (DGOC). I complained about its accounts, the FRC thought I was correct and forced Diversified to make changes. The letter below makes that clear. Ouzo for the Sheriff of AIM tonight methinks.

Tom Winnifrith Bonus Bearcast: the stench of lies and wrongdoing at Novum ref Pathfinder Minerals

My bearcast yesterday forced Pathfinder Minerals (PFP) and the scholars and gentlemen who run Novum Secutiries to issue a statement today. Unfortuanately the RNS of this morning is not true, it is misleading and deceptive and shows the desparation of Novum to cover up what really happened. I shall have a bombshell on Scrotum Securities later today but first I explain why what hapened and the attempted cover up is a total disgrace.

Novacyt shareholder commits market abuse impersonating Tom Winnifrith to keep the ramp going

In yesterday’s new video show I explained why Novacyt (NCYT) shares were 90% overvalued and presented damning new evidence of the management ramp. Yet immediately a raft of twitter fools – who clearly do not listen to what I have repeatedly said about this stock  – accused me of a volte face? And one particularly deranged individual showed “evidence” of me ramping the stock on May 18. Hang on Henry! This is market abuse. It’s personation. It’s fraud.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Darren Atwater & some bird from Brooklyn (who probably also has a beard) spout lefty post Covid shite

I start with one of Darren’s long reads which offers a post Covid plan for the restaurant sector. The author obviously has not got a clue about what being an entrepreneur means and about how business works. But this sort of nonsense is mainstream. In a similar vein I discuss board room greed and stupidity at Lloyds (LLOY) before moving onto how you deal with serial failures & pigs, reference the main troughers at Iconic (ICON). I start with a row with my neighbout who thinks my Woodlarks training threatens her social distancing and will see her dog kidnapped. I despair. I shall be walking past her house 7 times this afternoon. As you consider that treat please donate to rogue bloggers now as we reach 29% of target. Please give HERE

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: So it will be 50 laps of the fields as I struggle with the share dealing timeline at AJ Bell

Myself and some friends from here, the last village in Wales, walked the track around the 3 farthest fields at the Welsh Hovel and it is 1.1 kilometres long. That means that on June 13 I shall walk the circuit 50 times exactly raising the money Woodlarks needs just to survive into 2021. Today I did three laps as I faced a busy day. Tomorrow it will be ten. Please donate a few quid today HERE. In the podcast I consider in long detail the timeline of major share dealings at AJ Bell (AJB) which just does not look right to me. There are a stack of questions going begging. Then it is onto Eurasa (EUA) and what will happen on Friday. Will SP Angel again show that it will act for anyone or will AIM Regulation wade in to ensure Eurasa is booted off the AIM Casino? I discuss that matter in detail.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: This is a crazy world

I discuss rocketing unemployment – and we ain’t seen nothing yet, shares making higher ground and folks paying to lend money to the Government. It is all insane yet, on balance, I remain a bull of shares. Then I look at how nothing has changed with regard to executive greed citing three examples I have covered elsewhere today. There is a fourth which makes what I outline today seem like a nothing issue. It is linked to shameless stock promotion and I will expose it all at the weekend in a new premium, i.e. we charge 99p, podcast to replace Shareprophets Radio. Media models based on advertising and sponsorship are, in my view, dead. I think 99p for a 2 hour video & audiocast is a fair price but what do I know? Finally, we are now at 20% of our target at Rogue Bloggers for Woodlarks. Help us get to 23% by tomorrow, please donate HERE

Woodlarks needs £48,000 to survive the year. We have now raised 17% of that, please can you make a donation, however small, today to get us closer to target. Please give HERE. I then launch into a heartfelt defence of Roger Lawson of Sharesoc over what appears to be an undeclared related party deal at the organisation that campaigns for improved corporate governance and transparency. Then I look at Imperial Brands (IMB) and First Derivatives (FDP), one a stonking long the other a stonking short.

Then I cover Corero (CNS), Open Orphan (ORPH), where I am both vindicated after Friday’s letter to AIM Regulation and also a seller of more shares today, Novacyt (NCYT), Collagen (COS), Falanx (FLX), and Bidstack (BIDS).

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: No Roy I will not pay more tax to keep paying Polly fecking Toynbee £300k a year

Thde good news is that Buzzfeed UK has been shut down for good. The bad news is that pampered journalists are increasingly demanding that we plebs pay more in tax to subsidise them. I discuss that then the increasingly murky goings on at All Active Asset Capital (AAA), death spiral nonsense at Tertiary Minerals (TYM) and then buyers remorse at Restaurant Group (RTN). Finally I have bad news about Woodlarks & need your help, please respond.

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

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

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Rishi's in denial, Purplebricks is in denial but will AIM regulation be in denial about Tern?

I start with the economic mess the Government has landed us all in. Will 25% of small businesses go bust or just 13% and who is going to pick up the tab? Then it is onto Purplebricks (PURP), Tern (TERN), Mosman (MSMN) and Bidstack (BIDS) where time is almost up, the Fat Lady is surely gargling now.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: taking incoming from all quarters today

There are folks in a certain rain sodden second world nation objecting to an article on my own site HERE. The Mrs. Natch. It is all to do with mother-in-law jokes.  At least one AIM CEO objecting to this article. And finally a chap who asribes evil motives to the timing of my investment in San Leon (SLE), without actually knowing a couple of key facts. I discuss the point he raises. In the main podcast I look at Tern (TERN), where I think Nigel S is wrong but that the boss is a rogue director as I explained at the weekend HERE, 88 Energy (88E), and Land Securities (LAND) and the entire commercial property sector.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: I cannot condone the actions of the Mrs or join her as I am a law abiding citizen

Yes, the Mrs and Joshua broke lockdown to go see the mother-in-law. Naturally I was keen to join them but gave two reasons why I could not. On that matter the Government has no strategy that works for ending the chaos it created. It is a shambles. I explain what all the fuss is about at Fox Marble (FOX) - you can see for yourself HERE. Then look at San Leon (SLE), Kefi (KEFI), Mosman (MSMN) and Bidstack (BIDS). The moral of the tale, swot up on your show videos tonight HERE.

Mike Turner really is a stupid man.  I find myself once again talking to the Law about his attempts to stop me exposing him as a defaming moron. I move on to discuss the conflicted riole of the broker to the POS that is Bidstack (BIDS). Then it is onto events at Motif Bio (MTFB) and Tern (TERN) and the way it presents its dismal results. Finally I have just recoreded a 90 minute video for Saturday with Mark Slater. I see that in the comments section NoGold reckons he will would learn nothing from Slater but NoGold is a genius.

Ouzo for Gabriel Grego & Tom Winnifrith as Akazoo (InternetQ as was) admits its a fraud - Martin Hughes at Tosca, I'm coming for you!

Back in 2015 I demonstrated, without any doubt, that AIM listed InternetQ (INTQ) was a fraud. I doorstepped it in Athens. I crawled all over its bigus websites in Greece.  The Greek management and fund manager Martin Hughes of Tosca – a shareholder PA as well as via his fund – responded by taking it private. They then rebranded it as Akazoo and listed it on Nasdaq, Earlier this week Gabriel Grego again exposed it as a fraud. On Friday, the shares were suspended, the CEO fired and investors warned that ALL historic financials may be fiction. The SEC filing below is damning.

I end by saying I recorded a PLC video for the show earlier.  I am incredibly tempted to buy the shares heavily. Anyhow both videos and 70 others will go live on May 9 so book your ticket HERE. In today’s podcast I look at Novacyt (NCYT), Avacta (AVCT) fake news in the Mail on Sunday, Urban Exposure (UEX) and in very real detail that old Thirsty Paul Scott fave TrakM8 (TRAK) where today’s numbers ring massive alarm bells.

BREAKING: The Bidstack smearer of Tom Winnifrith exposed as a gender fluid contact of James Draper

Yesterday, ShareProphets discussed a defamatory website about, myself, Tom Winnifrith that was put online on Friday and appeared to be the work of a supporter of Bidstack (BIDS), the AIM listed company run by Lyin’ James Draper.  We rebutted its clearly spurious allegations and condemned is appeal to anti-semitism. The author of the website claims to be a female investigative journalist. We can reveal that this is a,lie, who the real author is and how he (not she) is trying to hide his links to Lyin’ James.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: The prick that will burst the Novacyt, Avacta and other Covid test bubbles has arrived - timber!

I start with the defamatory and anti semitic blog attack on me from Bidstack (BIDS) owning loon which I rebutted yesterday HERE. I have now identified the author who is not as “she” claims a female investigative journalist but is a male Bulletin Board Moron. I shall expose his identity and also his close social media links to Bidstack boss Lyin James Draper, which “she” has been trying to hide this weekend, later. When, I wonder did “she” last swap ideas with Lyin’ James? Then I look at the prick which will burst the Coronavirus testing bubble on AIM. If you own shares in Novacyt (NCYT), Avacta (AVCT) or any of the other Covid test plays watch out! Finally, I am in despair at smug Sam Smith of FinnCrap (FCAP), La Horlick and various other women determined to see taxpayers cash spunked by Rishi Sunak on gender quota lines in his start up bailout scheme. This is insanity laid upon insanity. There is no such insanity at the ShareProphets Shares Show. I am busy making recordings for it every day now, please do book your seats for May 9 HERE

I discuss quite how scandalous it is that Legoland owner Merlin should get a cent of taxpayer cash. Then it is onto Avacta (AVCT) and gold stocks. Should we be banking gains? On the former I suggest yes on the latter I think not but offer a few notes of caution. Today is a day when I really start recording videos and podcasts for the ShareProphets Shares conference.

I start with a few words about how business is setting the pace on ending the Coronavirus lockdown and wonder if the Government’s hand will be forced. On the subject of Covid 19 my latest podcast is live HERE and explains why I believe the Government has made the biggest blunder in history.  I then reveal what Versarien (VRS) does not want you to know about its “hook up” with Rolls Royce and ask if SP Angel is earning commission on the death spiral and if so why is it not being declared? I look at Tullow (TLW), Open Orphan (ORPH), Novacyt (NCYT) and Collagen (COS). And I suggest that you really should buy a ticket to watch the greatest ever line up at a British investor show HERE.

Tom Winnifrith Coronavirus podcast 7 - The data from Sweden shows that the dire warnings from the British Political & Media class were just a GroupThink lie

We were told by ALL the politicians, nearly all the media, by many scientists, including the world famous virologist Piers Morgan, that we had no choice but to respond to Coronavirus with a draconian lockdown that has smashed our civil liberties and hurled us into the worst recession since the 1930s. Sweden is the one Western country to have gone down a different route despite immense media pressure and threats from the World Health Organisation. But the bodies are not piling up in mass graves in Malmo, they are not running out of death carts in Stockholm or Gothenburg. And that exposes the GroupThink driven calamity we are now all suffering for what it is. The media still thinks the scandal is that we did not lockdown earlier or provide enough PPE. But data analysis or logic is not something anyone at the BBC seems to understand – they don’t teach that sort of thing on liberal arts courses at Oxbridge. The real scandal is that we have blundered into a policy which will, in the end, show that the “cure” was not a cure at all but was in fact worse than the ailment. Time once again for our leaders to read the last work by my late uncle, Christopher Booker, on GroupThink (available here).

I commend you to read Nigel’s piece today on gold. I think he may be right and think I need to add to my gold exposure although, for company specific reasons, my biggest holding, Bluebird Merchant (BMV) will soon fly, methinks. I reveal a new speaker at the greatest investment show I have ever organised and suggest you buy a ticket HERE

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Do not celebrate my Optibiotix humiliation too much & the murky uber ramp at AAA

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

Tom Winnifrith Coronavirus podcast 5 - the dodgy data of the Mob who will not brook NHS criticism and who insist PPE blunders are killing doctors & nurses

The mob is now suffering industrial scale GroupThink when it comes to Coronavirus and especially when it comes to the NHS. We must all line up once a week to applaud NHS staff, we must accept how hard they are working and how the NHS is uber-efficient, and we must lambast Government for failings of testing and providing PPE to staff which has caused too many of them to die. This is the line and any dissenter is attacked as despising NHS staff or wanting old folks or doctors to die. But the hard data justifies nothing that the mob insists and the Mainstream Media and Government in a craven way just go along with it all. Please do listen to what I actually say before lambasting me for what you think I might say. Then perhaps read  GroupThink (available here)  by my late uncle Christopher Booker to place this insanity in context.

Then I do the work on the RNS statements issued by Ascent Resources (AST) and Iconic (ICON) that their advisers should have done but failed to do.

What is happening at morally bankrupt law form Pinsent Masons is a particular disgrace.

I start with a few comments on Coronavirus as more evidence emerges HERE of why the economy wrecking Government lockdown is such complete madness. It reminds me of an incident around 2000 years ago today when the mob persuaded a leader to adopt a policy not backed up by the facts. I then look at why Roger Lawson is so utterly wrong about Carson Block of Muddy Waters and should apologise. Finally I discuss the behaviour of folks like Alison Rose of NatWest in this crisis. Shocking and unethical maybe but would you not do the same?

Then I take great joy from the news that Channel 4 is having to make big cost cuts, but comment on its moral bankruptcy in taking state aid while still paying stars a packet and also what this tells us about companies such as Audioboom (BOOM). I look at the latest daft idea from my local Tory MP, Sarah Atherton, about the taxpayer funding a dying industry. I discuss a chat with Paul Jourdan of Amati, why I think house prices will crash but the bull case for shares. I look at the new dot.com bubble, the Corona bubble discussing, inter alia, Novacyt (NCYT), Tiziana (TILS) and Omega Diagnostics (ODX).

I look at news that Tesco (TSCO) is upping its dividend while getting a massive tax break from the taxpayer. This is wrong at every level. The Times tries to defend it, no doubt on orders from a powerful corporate PR machine, but this is simply a transfer of wealth from the poor to the rich and should not be allowed. I look at Nostra Terra Oil & Gas (NTOGfollowing up on my earlier piece with more questions for the board and Nomad, Strand Hanson, and another shocking revelation abiout the behaviour of CEO Matt Lofgran. Finally a few words on Concepta (CPT), my share tip of the year where I have averaged down in today’s placing.

First an appeal on behalf of Darren, please can you assist him. Then I look at R4E (R4E), a Covid zero or a multibagger. Then compare the management at Restaurant Group (RTN) and then at Cineworld (CINE) where the greedy bastards are doing exactly what Liverpool FC did before there was a public outcry. Then a note on Bidstack (BIDS) and a look at 88 Energy (88E)

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: No longer a down and out old man but a throwback to the 1970s & I hate James Hay

Yes, after three weeks, I have shaved off a lockdown beard that was white, grey, black and brown and made me look like an elderly Big Issue seller. But having run out of foam i still have a dark moustache and so am now a throwback to the 1970s. The good old days.  I discuss this and also the idea that we will see a dramatic post Coronavirus economic, stockmarket and oil price recovery. I look at Easyjet (EZJ), Angling Direct (ANG) – using it as a case study of how the economy really is snagged so badly – and at the scandal at Versarien (VRS) where lyin’ Neill Ricketts now stands totally exposed with regards to his share dumping a year ago. Surely the regulators must act now. I discuss how James Hay are m aking my life a misery with their incompetence lover my SIPP transfer.  Finally an appeal from Darren please send your views of your new home desks and the views from your window to [email protected]

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: have you lost your animal spirit yet?

On the occassion of my father’s 82nd Birthday i ponder how miserrable life must be for him today. I urge you to hold your nose and go online to the Mail on Sunday just to read Peter Hitchens today. His column is golden prose, a joy to read. we agree on the coronavirus and the Government’s appalling response. Luke Johnson is in the same camp and I quote from his Sunday Times column reflecting on where my animal spirit sits as a consumer, an investor and an entrepreneur. Where, I ask,  do you sit dear listeners? I sense, in many cases they have been crushed and thus what lies ahead is a recession of the sort few of us have ever seen before.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Now really is an ideal time to talk about FTSE 350 and also AIM executive greed

I start with a swipe at the failings of the deadwood press and the behaviour of the soccer Premier League. More on the former in a podcast on my own website later this weekend – a promise for comrade Euro Loon Jonathan Price. Then a look at Debenhams whose demise I regard as a silver lining from the Covid 19 cloud. I think Zombie firms should all perrish. But the main part of this podcast looks at Executive Greed and with firms asking either investors or the taxpayers for a bailout now is an ideal time to lance this boil.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Happy Birthday to the Mrs & Guardian reading sister N - where does the bailout madness stop?

It will be a strange birthday for the Mrs here in Wales.  At least she has my cooking to look forward to.  Most of this bearcast looks at bailout madness. Where do we stop? Soccer clubs, Rugger clubs? The charities. In, almost, all cases I argue we shiould not be bailing them out. Indeed if Covid 19 alters the face of pro sport and the Charity sector I think that is a good thing. Then there is the deadwood press. I also look at Bagir (BAGR) and Tullow Oil (TLW).

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: This is NOT a late April Fool: Bear raider Evil Knievil turns mega bullish on shares

I swear i am not joking. I discuss my life with Evil (no, Mt BBM we are not gay lovers, stop sniggering at the back) and his remarkable macro view.  I also reveal I have a treat for you all, keep May 8 in your diaries! In terms of stocks I look at the scandalous flouting of almost every rule by AIM Casino posterboy Conroy Gold & Natural Resources (CGNR) and the wider issue that the Oxymorons at AIM Regulation will do SFA about. I look at Burford (BUR) and more vindication for my pal Carson Block of Muddy Waters, at Carnival (CCL) – sorry Three Brains -  and at Coro Energy (CORO) where the curse of James “Dracula” Parsons strikes again.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: 5 signs that a banking crisis is on the way

Some of you fell for my April Fool - wow! thanks for the messages of congratulation! In yesterday’s bearcast I argued that banks had to abandon paying dividends pro tem. Now under pressure they have agreed to do so. I now give you five little or big case studies showing why a banking crisis is inevitable. Then I look at Nostra Terra Oil & Gas (NTOG), Bluebird Merchant Ventures (BMV), where I am a very excited and supportive shareholder but think the chairman must be fired after today’s news, Bidstack (BIDS), Plutus Powergen (PPG) and the associated POS companies and Westminster Group (WSG) where repellent slug and ex Tory MP Tony Baldry of 3DM infamy shows again why he is the unacceptable face of capitalism.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: More red flags than flutter on Jeremy Corbyn's bedroom wall

I start with a look at dividends in general and why they should be cut or axed but I discuss  as per today’s most excellent article from Chris “Three Brains” Bailey  Imperial Brands (IMB) and Shell (RDSB) in particular. I am tempted to buy both becuase i think their shares will go up AFTER an inevitable dividend cut. I discuss what a moron Jeremy Corbyn is and my anger at an Oxford institution wanting Government cash. I look at Zenith Energy (ZEN) wondering if it has found more fake sheikhs drawn to the AIM Casino and also at AIQ (AIQ) – which continues to amuse.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: it is all about the cash & JD Wetherspoon needs a 7 AM RNS

Maybe I admire Tim Martin of JD Wetherspoon (JDW) a bit less but I understand what he is up to. Across the land not everyone is rallying around praising the NHS and saying “we are all in it together.” Businesses are desperate to hoard cash and are forced to behave in ways that are not always very pleasant. I do not think some folks realise just how bad the Government’s reaction to Covid 19 rather than the virus itself will be for the economy, for businesses and for its own finances. Mr Martin needs to draft an RNS for 7 AM to say whether he has been misleading beer suppliers or misleading investors.

I am sure that like almost all healthy victims he will recover and refer you to my two podcasts HERE and HERE as to why the Doomsayers are engaing in GroupThink but really cannot have it both ways: the virus cannot be both highly contagious and highly lethal. I discuss why the three day shares rally, now reversed today, cannot be justified in terms of the likely curve of corporate earnings recovery. I look at Next (NXT), Optibiotix (OPTI) and dual listings, Dev Clever (DEV) & Royal Mail Group (RMG)

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Jim is your dad really Independent & win a prize by explaining Online Blockchain's accounts to me

I had a long chat today with my stockbroker, City veteran A. Laiker Esq on what it is like working from home. He loves it. I sense so do many others. I have loved it for years, being essentially a miserable and anto-social bastard. Companies will also love this new trend in the post Covid era and i discuss its implications. I look at Intu (INTU) and what an awful position it is in. The shares are a zero but discuss the whole sector. I run through the latest rumours on Ascent (AST), reveal that it is Novum Securities that has welshed on a £200,000 commitment but report another (bad news) rumour that ascent needs to comment on. I look at a good deal for Webis (WEB) but think my old pal Jim Mellon is taking the piss with his view of who qualifies as an “independent” director. Then onto the markets where we have another bad news is good day and finally the prize contest relates to the utterly shite results of Online Blockchain (OBC) snuck out at no-one is watching O’clock yesterday alongside the pretty shite numbers from sister company ADVFN (AFN)

In today’s bearcast I start by apologising to someone who is not a pest at all. Then I again discuss Covid 19 and have another podcast on my own website up today which has some relevance to this. I look at surging markets and am sceptical, at Yourgene (YGEN), Genedrive (GDR), FastJet (FJET) and at Versarien (VRS) which has announced a big China deal which cannot be a fraud given the involvment of top nomad SP Angel in doing due diligence and honest as they come Neill Ricketts in constructing the deal.

Then I look at gold and when, not if, it will soar and gow to play that. Finally i look at what companies will do in terms of dividends AFTER they have, prudently, scrapped payments citing the Coronavirus. I fear Nigel Somerville and Ian Cowie of the Sunday Times may be in for a nasty shock.

Then I look at the Boeing, British Airways and Easyjet (EZJ) bailout conundrums facing our leaders. Easyjet has just scored a big own goal on that front and almost deserves to perish, hence the share price move today. I look at Crest Nicholson (CRST) and also at R4E (R4E) which is either a five bagger or bust.

I chatted to Nigel Wray, Britain’s Buffett, at length today about the markets, individual shares, the coronavirus, the shape of the recession, consumer attitudes and most interestingly about commercial property, which he knows a bit about. I also discuss Sosandar (SOS), Finncrap (FCAP), Arden (ARDN), WH Ireland (WHI) and other Nomad/brokers and when the FCA will have to step in to check their solvency.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: my distraction from the stockmarket crash is working out my odds of dying from coronavirus

It is a happy game which I have discussed with a couple of listeners. Anyhow, it just shows how data can be interpreted in so many ways. I am, you may be pleased, or maybe distressed, to hear taking steps tpo improve my chances. I then discuss the market crash and how it affects different classes of shares – the issue for us all is not whether our investments are cheap but will the equity in them survive? If the answer is YES then I suspect they are now cheap. If NO well then they are still expensive. I discuss Optibiotix (OPTI), Bidstack (BIDS), Versarien (VRS), Big Sofa (BST), Big Dish (DISH), Restaurant Group (RTN), Ascent Resources (AST), City Centre Pubs (CTC) and also why gold and gold shares are not soaring. Fear not, Malcolm Burne has the experience and the answer. They will.

I look at Restaurant Group (RTN) which, again, I warn is a disaster waiting to happen, then at various bubbles that have burst  in the past few weeks including bitcoin (ha Dominic Frisby take that!) cannabis, junk bonds and AIM shite and discuss a few companies in those sectors. I also clarify a point on bailouts for the benefit of NoGold.

I look at why the Government statistics on Covid 19 are sheer fantasy as it has been stalking us for far longer than Boris admits. And finally I explain why my family and I are now in self isolation and locked down here in North Wales for the next three months and how we must adjust how we live as a result.

In today’s podcast I start with an apology to Mitch Tarr for perhaps marginally misquoting him. But that turns into a demand that for all sorts of reasons BigDish (DISH) fires its chairman Jonathan Morley-Kirk, who should be in prison. Then I look at Coronavirus and Dignity (DTY) following a discussion with my GP sister. Then it is onto Sirius Minerals (SXX) and finally to why Brexit “bad boy” Arron Banks is a hero both for dealing with the ghastly Carole Cadwalladr and for his actions at Iofina (IOF) which I support for reasons I explain in great detail.

I am indeed with my father in Shipston this morning and even he has noticed that he is not quite as rich as he was two weeks ago. Shiuld we pamic about our holdings? On balance I am not suggesting that you do but certain stocks do look very vulnerable. Surely profits warnings from Telit (TCM), IQE (IQE) and Carnival (CCL) are in the pipeline. Then there is the issue of companies such as Bidstack (BIDS) which need placings urgently. Just how possible is that going to be in the current climate. Then to Sirius (SXX). The Sunday papers seem to think that sh\areholders may well reject the Anglo bid and so lose everything. I discuss this looming calamity, who is to blame and what the impact localised and more widely will be.

Then I turn to what it means for a company to be insolvent and why that is not necessarily trading whilst insolvent. Finally back to Versarien and Neill Ricketts trying to silence a critic using the Police. A) given the way he eggs on the mob to harass me and my wife this is nauseating hypocrisy, b) the Police do not have a leg to stand on and I urge the critic to keep posting so the Police look like fascist arseholes, c) it shows just how desprate Lyin’ Neill has become and as such this is a massive red flag.

Versarien (VRS) has been forced to come partially clean and the news is utterly terrible. Even morally bankrupt PR firm Yellow Jersey – which spun for Frontera (FRR) AFTER I showed it was a fraud – cannot polish this turd.

Then onto what filing management accounts means and the question of possible securities fraud at Dev Clever (DEV), which I have flagged up with the FCA today. Then, as per the screenshot below, it is the changing behaviour of Neill Ricketts at Versarien (VRS) and what that tells us about the regulatory hole he is in and why Canaccord quit as Nomad. Finally a comment on Bahamas Petroleum (BPC), its piss poor death spiral and crazy valuation.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast - So what really did happen at Great Western & is Zenith near toast?

In today’s podcast I look aty one theory about the past 48 hourse at Great Western Mining (GWMO). i shall be asking the FCA to investigate. I pass on a rumour about Zenith Energy (ZEN) which, if true, will rapidly accelerate its already inevitable demise and I explain why directors of Dev Clever (DEV) should be in jail. Hell’s teeth, Dev’s year end is November 30 not December 31 as I thought, making this case of securities fraud even worse than I describe in the bearcast. Lock em up starting with boss Chris Jeffries. Again I shall be contacting the FCA.  I also look at NMC Health (NMC) and Novacyt (NCYT). Now that we are at 5 rogue bloggers for Woodlarks, with more rogue bloggers gto be announced soon, surely all listeners can spare a tenner to donate HERE

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Update from flood central, just when will IQE issue its Coronavirus warning

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

hey what better way to mark International Women’s day than to hear an overpaid BBC nobody interview someone who  says she is “ A self-confessed believer in the human spirit, she is ‘ridiculously and overwhelmingly happy with the opportunities that she has to develop and how she can play into the amazing world that we live in.” Yup, you know who is back.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: the death of my great uncle David Cochrane & Virgina Woolf

I have been contacted by an elderly academic who has written up the events of Virginia Woolf’s 1932 tour of Greece. She claims to have been in Delphi when they discovered the body of my great Uncle David Cochrane. I rather doubt it and discuss this a) because it fascinates me and b) to annoy No Gold. Then it is onto Predator Oil & Gas (PRD) – is it placing ahoy?  Versarien (FRAUD), Eurasia (EUA), Ascent Resources (AST), Sound Energy (SOU) and James “Dracula” Parsons and finally uber dog Mosman (MSMN).

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Sosandar placing, you were warned but for some folk it will be a shock and is enough to turn a man to drink

In today’s podcast I look at the shocking behaviour of Sosandar (SOS) and at the even more shocking behaviour of some shareholders in Novacyt (NCYT), shares in which are grotesquely overvalued. I also look at Zoetic (ZOE) where my predictions have come to pass, and at United Carpets (UCG) which should, IMHO, delist from AIM pronto.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Playing the Chris Akers game & another Versarien question for Bobbie Hilliam of Quindell infamy

In today’s podcast, interrupted by the pest Lucian, I look at Chris Akers and what he knows about Dev Clever (DEV), at Versarien (VRS) and an RNS from February 2017 which I urge its hapless Nomad Bobbie Hilliam at Canaccord to consider carefully as his client runs out of money again, at Andalas (ADL), Eurasia (EUA) and Tesla (TSLA). I consider the woes of Bidstack (BIDS) and a company with even less money, the curious trading statement from Zoetic (ZOE) and then do the maths, again, on UK Oil & Gas (UKOG).

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Sam Antar will be so proud of Future PLC

I am not saying Future (FUTR) is a fraud just that the way it has responded to Matt Earl’s devestating dossier will make my pal, the King of the Fraudsters, so incredibly proud. At last someone is following his advice on how to deal with critics. I also look at Burford (BUR), Big Dish (DISH), NAHL (NAH),Nostra Terra (NTOG),  St James Place (SJP) who I suggest hires Elizabeth Holmes and Julie “lingerie on expenses” Meyer at once, Versarien (VRS) and Arden Partners (ARD), home of the China fraud specialist Mr Paul Shackleton of Naibu (NBU) infamy.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: I write a perfect script for a Versarien owning moron as I fall out with Lucian

In today’s podcast I look at Versarien (VRS) and explain why Lucian Miers and I have fallen out over this one on the latest edition of ShareProphets Radio. I look at Tern’s (TERN) bollockese trading statement and ask “when’s the placing” or “Show Me The (lack of) Money”. I look at the (bad) news from UK Oil & Gas (UKOG) regarding Horse Hill and for me the numbers still do not stack up even with the shares having slumped to 0.675p.

This will be entertaining if, I suspect, utterly pointless. I also comment on Versarien (VRS) correcting a BB loon – and flag up that I have a major AIM expose of a high profile, shortable, stock going live tomorrow morning. I explain why it is so interesting. Now I am off to do a Woodlarks training walk. So far we have £6600 raised or pledged - don’t be mean donate today HERE

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Online Blockchain shares up 58% - have you read the 2019 accounts?

ADVFN (AFN) sister company Online BlockChain (OBC) shares a Nomad in Roland “fatty” Cornish. If you read the 2019 accounts you will be squealing with laughter yet the shares have rocketed 58% today. Why? No doubt Roland is on the ball and a statement will be forthcoming. I look at the madness at Davos, signs of peak bull market insanity and at the news from Westminster Gtroup (WSG) chaired by repellent pig The Right Honourable Tony Baldry of 3DM infamy.

Is it wrong for companies to pay morons as well as whore bloggers to ramp. Having now discovered one company where this is going on I discuss just how big this issue is and whether and why it is a scandal.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: I'm sitting on a dynamite resignation letter + No Gold you are ( as usual) wrong Steve O'Hara is NOT a liar

The resignation letter from a NED at an AIM listed company is a shocker. So far there has been no RNS. If the company does not come clean on what is in the letter I shall publish in full on Monday as it opens up a serioes of cans of worms which raises far bigger scandals I suspect. I discus this at length. I also look at Plutus Powergen (PG), Zinc Media (ZIN) and in great detail Optibiotix (OPTI) where the professional cynics have got it wrong and need to apologise. I have bought more shares on the back of today’s interims and explain why.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast - I wouldnt buy the shares at 9.25p but Jim Mellon's Agronomics really fascinates me

Dickhead of the decade George Monbiot of the Guradian has a book to plug and is all over the radio. Oh, which decade you ask? Every decade. Anyhow I have swapped emails with Jim Mellon on this as it concerns his company Agronomics (ANIC) which really interests me. I think today;s interims show the shares, at 9.25p are expensive but at a lower level there is a case for buying as I explain. I also look at Oracle (ORCP), correcting an error I made yesterday, Lekoil (LEK), Lamprell (LAM) and urge you to start donating to Rogue Bloggers for Woodlarks HERE.

Suffice to say the Clown is acting like a total tit and is 100% wrong. I discuss Kier (KIE), something missing in the Sheikh on the Make scandal at Oracle Coalfields (ORCP) – not just brain cells in the case of those buying the shares, and at Plutus Powergen (PPG) and its free speech-denying boss.

I look at three Nomads and their clients: Lekoil (LEK), Versarien (VRS) and Anglo African Oil & Gas (AAOG) plus I discuss Tizania (TILS) and today’s monster spoof from almost insolvent Iconic Labs (ICON).

First things first. It is 6 months and 1 day to the 3 Rogue Bloggers for Woodlarks walk. I did a short train yesterday at Moel Famau of which more later. Anhow, if you enjoy bearcast please show so by donating HERE.  Thanks in advance for your support and also for the birthday wishes. As you can see in the comments section HERE there is a poster on ADVFN who seems to think he can save Versarien (VRS) by suggesting, falsely, that I am a paedophile. Normally I’d ignore such pond life but I am almost tempted to teach him a very expensive legal lesson in libel law. What do you think?  Then it is onto a story dictated by NMC Health’s (NMC) PR team to yellow journalists at the Mail on Sunday. The real import of threats against Caron Block & Muddy Waters is very negative for NMC. Finally I have a bombshell for AIM Cesspit followers tomorrow. Watch this space!

Ahead of the start of my training for the 2020 Woodlarks walk on June 13 I appeal for volunteers – who will join me on this 34 mile trek? Then there is an update on my literary efforts. Then it seems asn if Nu-OG (NUOG) may be the third company dragged into the criminal activiuty on private chat-rooms scandal. Just how big is this? Then I turn to Plutus Powergen (PPG) where the useless and venal board survived a sack the board GM narrowly. C’mon, our resident in-house Euro loon Jonathan Price, who now asserts as an insult that my Dad and I are “posh”, how about you start campaigning for a confirmatory second people’s GM?

Tom Winnifrith Beacast: The cancer of private chatrooms for shameless ramping by AIM Casino bosses - will AIM Regulation act?

As I reveal that it is not only Versarien (VRS) up to no good in this respect but also Eurasia Mining (EUA), I wonder which other shameless PLC rampers are up to no good and will AIM Regulation do anything to stop an increasingly disorderly market becoming an open sewer? I look at retail shares and real estate plays on that as more evidence emerges that my very long term “avoid the lot like the plague” stance was correct. I look at changing brokers at Cenkos (CNKS) and Condor Gold (CNR) and Premier Miton (PMI) and what the AIM Casino demise of SalvaRx (SALV), where managers are talented, says about the dangers of backing a cash shell.

There are no guests in this week’s show which is sponsored by Open Orphan PLC (ORPH). It is just me once again sitting in the Welsh Hovel. As I note in the podcast the reason why I think Open Orphan is such a good company with undervalued shares is explained HERE. In part one I look at corporate lying citing a number of different examples and why some lies matter more than others, some are red flags but not killers others are investment case killers.  Then I offer up a number of macro reasons to be very cautious on all asset classes this year. Do not believe the idea that Bojo will usher in the roaring twenties.

I comment on another of its failings in light of today’s Neil Woodford News.

I look at Anglo African Oil & Gas (AAOG) and at Zenith Energy (ZEN) whrre I am contacted by material shareholders who want regime change something that makes Anglo’s desire to own Zenith shares even more bonkers.

Yes Merry Christmas to you all and to your families however you celeberate it and even if you are a pagan like Darren Atwater orf a sinner like some of those I discuss today: Vast Resources (VAST) and a spoof warrant exercise, my friend Andrew Bell and Red Rock Resources (RRR) who makes himself a hostage to fortune with his careless words, Drew Nelson at IQE (IQE) with an odd management greed RNS and Charles Tatnall whose Fandango Holdings (FHP) serves up the most bonkers and misleading set of results in 2019.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: which is a bigger pile of pooh: the results from Zoetic or Star Wars

I say this as a Star Wars groupie: I went with my daughter todaty and it was pure woke rubbish. It really was awful. I was bored, annoyed and almost walked out.  I thenm discuss Bidstack (BIDS), caught up ion its own lies and running out of cash and Zoetic International  (ZOE) caught up in its own poor judgement and running out of cash.

Its performance is dire and redemptions are vast, is it in really deep merde or just very serious trouble?

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Blatant market abuse at Dev Clever while Bidstack refutes its own spoof at no-one is watching O'Clock

FFS it is not Season’s Greetings but Happy Christmas. Please do not wind me up with any more Godless messages. Thanks to Jim for flagging up what should be a parody, but sadly is not, Neil Woodford’s next business venmture. The I look at Bidstack (BIDS), NMC Health (NMC) and Circassia (CIR), two of which are surely good bets for bankruptcy in 2020.

FREE Podcast: ShareProphets Radio Edition TWENTY ONE with Tom Winnifrith - what does it mean to generate cash, fake & real claims

There are no guests in this week’s show which is sponsored by Open Orphan PLC (ORPH). It is just me once again sitting in the Welsh Hovel as the flood waters rise. I start with a red flags special on Iconic Labs (ICON). The company is an irrelevant and wofrthless POS but the red flags are interesting. Then it is onto a company where I demonstyrated compelling red flags six years ago but I’ve had to be patient. Finally, using Fulham, Shore (FUL) as a case study I look in real detail at why claims that company’s generate positive operating cashflow can be so misleading and why this is so important.If you like this and can’t wait seven days for more of the same and are tired of being a cheapskate you should listen to my Bearcast every day.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast - It is more than six years since I published the Bloody Dossier

Firstly, I am delighted to say that NoGold has been in touch about the £50 bet. Good man. Then I reflect on G3 Exploration (G3E) in light of Evil Banksta’s excellent piece yesterday. It is now more than six years since I ignored a certain amount of pressure and published the Bloody Dossier HERE. Under the Roger Lawson rules I would not have published. I am, again, vindicated. I comment on Anglo African (AAOG) and will have more to follow on toxic David Sefton and Iconic (ICON) later. Today’s news moves Lyin’ James Draper of Bidstack (BIDS) one place up my target list. I look at Online Blockchain (OBC) in detail and also at Fulham Shore (FUL) where the numbers look all wrong and which is, I fear, an accident waiting to happen. The £65 million valuation is crackers.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: from Sefton to Bidstack, corporate lying is fraud but at last 1 regulator is smelling the coffee

NoGold has still not been in touch regarding the £50 he owes me. It seems as if my good mates at the FRC really are getting tough on executives who commit accounting fraud. Fabbo. But I ask for more. And what of lying? It is fraud of a different sort and I have strong suggestions for what the FCA and especially the Oxymorons at AIM Regulation already can do and very rarely do do but need to do so more often to drain the swamp and put me out of a job.

I start with the Election, move on to the odd events at Versarien (VRS), sectors deemed to be scorching hot and others where death is not yet discounted.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Has Justin the Clown's IPO been pulled & a funny thing happened on the way to the polling station

I start with me voting and the Mrs not being able to vote here in Wrexham earlier today. Then there are two reports I have had that the Vox markets IPO has been pulled, I wonder if Justin the Clown will mention this in his podcast or will he be too busy blowing off Neill Ricketts of Versarien (VRS) whose abject results I discuss. I look at IP Group (IPO), Purplebricks (PURP), Premier African Minerals (PREM) and Bidstack (BIDS) wondering if it will serve up its overdue warning after hours tonight? Finally there is a plea on behalf of my cats.

In today’s podcast I start with the latest joke journalism from Justin the Clown who still shows extreme cowardice and declining my challenge. I answer the question about Ms Lingerie on Expenses and the empty chair, with reference to the FCA. I discuss Big Dish (DISH) again and why NED’s do matter. I look at Mercia Asset Managenment (MERC) and the comments of Roger Lawson of ShareSoc and his fave Chronic Investor hack, explianing where they are both going so badly wrong. Finally a look ay Rosslyn Data (RDT), its profits warning, valuation and vain boasts of generating cash.

Will Bidstack (BIDS) be £1 at Christmas as Justin the Clown predicted or will it crash with a lack of sales & profits warning. We know it is the latter, Justin is not stupid, just tied in by a busted business model at Vox which I again challenge him to discuss with me in a podcast. So far it is silence from the cowardly clown. I look at Futura Medical (FUM), cue flopping willy jokes, Ted Baker (TED) where I told y’all what would happen and Mothercare (MTC), ditto

Yes that shameless promoter James Parsons of Sound Energy (SOU) infamy has a new stock to promote to the gullible. I discuss Sound and his new grossly overvalued POS Regency Mines (RGM). I also look at what was Strat Aero, Remote Monitored Systems (RMS) asking ,in light of today’s news, if it has committed securities fraud? Has hapless Nomad SP Angel of Mysquar (MYSQ) infamy asked to see management accounts for Geocurve from July to today? If not why not?

Today’s news is shocking but should not shock you as I have warned this would happen. Anyone invested in commercial property shares is insane for reasons I explain again and as for an open-ended fund they are even more insane. I also look at the latest accounting wrongdoing at Ted Baker (TED) and M&C Saatchi (SAA). Do no auditors show professional scepticism these days. Then there is comment on Tomco (TOM) and value destruction. Oh and there is a snake story too.

One more day to go and then I shall be free to write a bit more.

In today’s bearcast I reflect on the start of Advent which I miss in Wales and on its start here in Kambos Greece. I look at pay at the big accountants and what it says about the sanctions against such folk when they screw up. Then it is onto Neil Woodford’s biggest cheerleader in the press until recently, Jeff Prestridge of the Mail on Sunday and his demands for action against the guilty parties in this scandal. Jeff misses out two of the guilty parties and misses the point on the rest.

Then it is on to Dignity (DTY), St James Place (STJ) and – in some detail – the very naughty boys at Iconic (ICON), led by toxic Dave Sefton and why the two NEDS walked today.

For once I defend the disgraced fund manager. I look at Eurasia Mining (EUA), I3 Energy (I3E) and also at Fastjet (FJET), a company that uses journalist smearing Citigate to polish its turds. The Eurasia podcast I refer to which should now be looked at by AIM Regulation is HERE

In the bearcast I look at Inspirit (INSP), 13 Energy (E3E), Eurasia Mining (EUA) which is run by a top banana bt has a joke valuation and FinnCap (FCAP) which has a joke valuation in light of today’s interims and is run by a top er… it is run by Sam Smith.

There are no guests in this week’s show which is sponsored by Open Orphan PLC (ORPH). It is just me and I start with the idea of it’s too good to be true at Intu (INTU) and that leads me on to look in some detail at the compelling bear case against all the housebuilders and what that means for other sectors and for you and me. Then I look at the 3 most overpromoted stocks on AIM, Bidstack (BIDS), Versarien (VRS) and AFC Energy (AFC), the common themes and why shares in all three will eventually collapse. But there is a warning for the bears too. Then it is onto the up to £15 million Appbox Media, One True View scandal I exposed this week HERE.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: is it okay to lie these days? Pocohontas, Iconic & UK Oil & Gas

I start with another moral question from the General Election  as I have already noted HERE  Labour thinks that our record number of abortions ( 206,000 last year) is not high enough, we must murder more babies. I then turn to the issue of lying asking if society now thinks it is just acceptable.  That brings me neatly onto Iconic (ICON) and UK Oil & Gas (UKOG) both of which I discuss in detail.

It is just me and I start with the tale of Lyin’ Chris Cleverley, the lying fraudster cousin of Tory Party chairman James. Lyin’ Chris runs listed companies and there is no doubt he is a liar and a fraudster so why has the FCA not acted? Then it is onto PureCircle (PURE) a billion dollar fraud, where after six years, myself and Lucian Miers are utterly vindicated. I invite you to read its 2018 annual report and despair at the woke world of best practice in corporate governance.

Then I look at Angus Energy (ANGS), Optibiotix (OPTI), Neil Woodford disasters Kier (KIE), Eddie Stobart Logistics (ESL) and Non-Standard Finance (NSF). Then at Veltyco (VLTY) which is clearly insolvent. 95p to 1.5p in two years, thank God it had a female CEO to demonstrate the benefits of boardroom diversity for some of that period. Incidentally that CEO Ms. Blau earned 220,000 Euro for just seven months work so did a great job of closing the #GenderPayGap.  Rejoice! Rejoice!

Then it is onto reports that the stricken Woodford empire may be selling £500 million of healthcare stocks. But at what price? Then it is onto how Ed Croft of Stockopedia, the company that flagged up mega fraud Quindell as one of the top 10 AIM stocks to buy, is claiming to have “predicted” the  Neil Woodford scandal. Of course it did not but no doubt this persuades more folks to sign up to Ed’s flawed system.  Then I crow as I discuss Nanoco (NANO) which I called out as long ago as 2015 and discuss where next for Bahamas Petroleum (BPC) as its open offer flops.

In today’s bearcast I look at fat yob Mike Ashley’s latest outburst on Goals Soccer Centres (GOAL), at Galantas (GAL), Bidstack (BIDS), Versarien (VRS) and at the tale of woe that is Cabot Energy (CAB) where the behaviour of the board in relation to potential wrong doing compares very unfavourably with that at Goals.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: the great thing about Vox Markets & Proactive is that they are a platform to tell 100% lies to investors

You think that Justin the Clown at Pox Markets and Proactive are there to help you? Think again. He who pays the piper…I reference Bidstack (BIDS) and Big Dish (DISH) in this part of the show. I discuss Dev Clever’s  (DEV) “news” today with reference to Cheryl Cole, look at the accounting mess at PureCircle (PURE) and have a few thoughts on the trading statement from Sosandar (SOS) where I am really not tempted to leap back in again.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: More on that Big Dish "rollout" as St James customer scams exposed

In today’s bearcast I take forward yesterday’s work on the Big Dish (DISH) “rollout” with some comments on its operations in Bristol. I look at Mothdercare (MTC) and Addison Lee, two firms whose time has gone. I look at attacks on fund managers who underperformed Neil Woodford and ask if those attacks are fair and at new ways St James Place (SJP) is shown to be ripping off its customers and what that means for shareholders in this unethical enterprise.

A day of delight for Joshua as we head off to meet Thomas the Tank Engine at Llangollen and for me as Brokerman Dan makes a truly amazing discovery at the Welsh Hovel. Then it is onto Gabriel Grego’s latest triumph, why we bears do such great work and the forces of evil ranged against us.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: to that bimbo at Walbrook PR who objects to me calling her (not by name) a bimbo, well you are one darling

I start by explaining why this bimbo who complained about me in public last night really is a bimbo and why her firm is in no position to complain. Then I look at why Rathbones let down my Aunt Lucy by giving her Woodford exposure – chaps you really need to sign up to a certain website. Then a look at how to value IP Group (IPO) and Woodford Patient Capital Trust (WPCT) and changing manager changes little. Finally I look at the mad woke world of Synthomer (SYNT) as it served up a warning today.

There are  no guests in this week’s show which is sponsored by Open Orphan PLC (ORPH). It is just me and I start with the 4 massive misses in this week’s Panorama on Neil Woodford. Then, bracing myself for massive trolling, I explain to shareholders in Bidstack (BIDS) how broker research actually works and why they should sell all their shares NOW!

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: the greed, folly and borderline criminality of Neil Woodford exposed again

I start by re-explaining to a monkey why the dogs he lies down with really are covered in fleas, then it is onto Big Dish (DISH) and why it is just 100% uninvestable. Finally it is Verseon (VERS) which has today shown itself a case study in how Neil Woodford put his interests ahead of those of his unit holders with a most disatrous call. PS target price for its shares is 0p by Christmas.

There are  no guests in this  week’s show which is sponsored by Open Orphan PLC (ORPH). it is just me, at the end of a momentous day in the world of financial services. First up I discuss Thomas Cook (TCG) and grandstanding by limp dick MPs, executive greed, the failings of NEDs and fund managers and the heroin that is debt. Then the vast bulk of the show is devoted to Neil Woodford. What went right and what went wrong and why? Why the FCA is cuplable and why Woodford should go to jail. What were the warning signs everyone bar this website ignored? Who else is to blame? Why Hargreaves Lansdown (HL.) must be broken up. What will happen to each of the 3 vehicles Woodford was fired from or quit yesterday and how much cash investors wil get back.If you like this and can’t wait seven days for more of the same  and are tired of being a cheapskate you should listen to my Bearcast every day.

Photo and video special: Tom Winnifrith and Nigel Somerville go to visit Neil Woodford in person

I happened to be in Oxford, for family reasons, and my colleague Nigel Somerville lives close to the City of Lost Causes and so we thought we’d pay Neil Woodford a visit. After the past 1000 articles exposing the soon to be ex fund manager since 2015 it was the least we could do.

It will be good to catch up. See you later! In the podcast today I also look at Woodford Patient Capital Trust (WPCT), backing Richard Jennings at Global Resources Investment Trust (GRIT) and at Optibiotix (OPTI). I also receive complaints about my coverage of Neil yesterday. I despair.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: A day of complete vindication as Neil Woodford is ruined

How I remember being singled out by name by Neil Woodford at the Woodford Patient Capital Trust (WPCT) AGM as a purveyor of fake news on May 16 this year. Neil was adamant: he was doing brilliantly I was making thisngs up. Today he was fired by his flagship fund and his City career is in its final weeks and will end in disgrace. Investors who ignored four years of warnings on this site will have lost billions. I reflect on all of this, where it leaves various parties including Neil’s other vehicles, disgraced Hargreaves Landsdowne (HL.) and other disgraced promoters.  I also comment on another vindication, the mercy takeover of Brady (BRY) at just 10p after I forced it to fess up to its finacial woes, with the shares at 26p just three weeks ago.

Video: Neil Woodford fired & disgraced today, here is Tom Winnifrith predicting it all in April 2018!

Neil Woodford, Britain’s best known fund manager, has today been fired by his flagship Equity Income Fund which is to be wound down. Some in the corrupt deadwood press, like the Mail on Sunday, were still praising Woodford up to the date before EIF was gated in June. Others have turned bearish over the past few months having previously drunk the cool aid. But we first warned about Woodfoird in 2015 and 1000 articles and podcasts later, we were clearlty first and our journalism has been utterly vindicated as you can see HERE. Site Editor Tom Winnifrith gave a keynote address at UK Investor 2018, in April of that year, predicting exactly what would happen and highlighting numerous red flags. You can see that video below

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Premier African shares soar on spoof newspaper articles (below)

Align bust up is funny but the spooof newspaper articles Gary Newman alerts us to below about Premier African (PREM) are hilarious. But some folks believe them and the shares up up 71%. Bonkers. Elsewhere I look at fund outflow at Miton Group (MGR) and what that all means and at the most overvalued ramps on AIM: Versarien (VRS) and Bidstack (BIDS) where Cynical Bear thinks there is no need for it to warn that it will miss broker forecasts by a mile even though he accepts it will. Strange man.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Why Bidstack now needs a formal (lack of) profits warning and could it run out of cash in Q1 2020

Of course I only record this because I am in the pay of the Israeli and Russian Governments. Whatever. I start with the pathetic deadwood press and how Richard Jennings blows them off to his shame and my disgust. But this podcast is really all about Bidstack (BIDS). Its CEO lied to investors on August 8 as explain with more detail this time. Ther case is open and shut. Now the company needs to issue a formal lack of profits warning. Again that is not a matter poof debate as I explain, in case wretched Nomad Mark Brady of Spark is listening and wants to avoid getting into even more trouble after his August 8 failure. Finally I ask how soon it will need to place again?

Top broker Andrew Monk of VSA defends Shareprophets for doing its job & exposing discounted placings

Punters are pissed off that we reveal placings such as that of Reabold (RBD) last week. Would they honestly prefer that companies just ramped shares via ramptastic RNS’s and podcasts with Justin the Clown so they overpaid in the secondary market ahead of a discounted placing to City insiders and spivs? Really? Do my critcs really enjoy such financial flaggelation so others can prosper?  Anyhow Monk goes on thus:

Fake Sheriff of AIM Marcus Stuttard and colleagues what a shit-showeryou preside over. Thanks to Adept Technology (ADT) we have a stat that damns you.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: St James Place is morally bankrupt, one hopes it goes bust and its staff never work again

The Sunday Times has a major expose on St James Place (SJP) based on testimony of an ex employee. It is truly shocking stuff although not shocking for me as St James pursued my late Uncle Chris very aggressively. What this firm does to screw clients and to reward staff who shaft those clients is repellent and shames capitalism. I hope the firm goes bust and its workers never work again. and it may happen…

Then at Neil Woodford’s latest woes at the Woodford Patient Capital Trust (WPCT) which are the beginning of the end. Will I get to monster the board at an AGM in 2020 as I did this year?

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: I am glad Mugabe is dead & burning in hell with Martin McGuinness

I start with the incredibly exciting matter I flagged yesterday. It did happen and I shall be able to say more in 4-6 weeks. Then onto the death of Robert Mugabe. I am sure the BBC will focus on early heroics. It should not. That is like saying “but… Hitler created some good art early on.” I celebrate Mugabe’s death wishing it had happened years ago. I look at how the regulators fail to tackle white collar crime reference Sefton (SER) and at why Altitude (ALT) MUST be investigated. I also cover Alien Metals (UFO) and Neil Woodford dog Xeros (XSG).

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Sam Hutchins scoop admitted to by GRIT but not enough - public career hanging needed now

Global Resources Investment Trust (GRIT) has today fessed up to some of the shocking revelations on this website about its former boss David “Sam” Hutchins. A small ouzo for the Sheriff for hos breakfast is perhaps in order. But this is not enough. GRIT and its adviser, Peterhouse Corporate Finance, need to go to the FCA and ensure there is a public“career execution” for smug Sam as part of a zero tolerance approach to those who break the rules. I also discuss Malcom’s bonkers views on the housebuilders and what the Shoe Zone (SHOE) warning and writedwns says about commercial property NAVs, ref Intu (INTU) and Hammerson (HMSO) in particular.

Would you believe I wasted 20 minutes of my life answering questions about the dossier from this ungrateful knobhead today?. It is not the first time I’ve helped him but with no grace to credit, it will be the last.  I also look at First Derivatives (FDP), discuss the very low grade lawyer’s letter I received today, look at ADM Energy (ADME) and at the comedy show that is Providence Resources (PVR)

Then a few words on Neil Woodford and finally I discuss the full extent of the possible regulatory horrors which follow on from today’s shocking breaking news on AIM “superstar” First Derivatives (FDP. Update First now says the lawsuit that could have bankrupted it was withdrawn ( it has not said why) on Friday. That does not explain why there was no RNS on Wednesday.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Will the FCA investigate whether a Dubai Royal Shaikh Ahmed Bin Dalmook Al Maktoum, is guilty of AIM casino insider dealing

This looks like a doddle to investigate. The stock is ADM Energy (ADME) but will the FCA dare to challenge Shaikh Ahmed Bin Dalmook Al Maktoum or is insider dealing just an offence of you are a nobody? Then I look at the Eddie Stobart (ESL) fraud debacle, the Industrial Heat shambles, Woodford Patient Capital Trust (WPCT), the  Equity Income Fund (which has  today insisted it will look to ungate at Christmas… whatever) the Income Focus Fund (soon to be gated) and what today’s news says about the stupidity, arrogance and lack of ethics of Neil Woodford himself. Postscript: His Highness Sheikh Ahmed bin Dalmook bin Juma Al Maktoum is not to be confused with Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum, Chairman of Emirates and indeed a very wealthy man. I did confuse him but this is still a Dubai Royal, will the FCA take him on?

Tom Winnifrith Bonus Bearcast for Roger Lawson: your post Burford proposals are largely unwise & would be, largely, counter productive

In the wake of the Muddy waters attack on Burford (BUR) Roger Lawson of ShareSoc has published a detailed set of proposals to tackle what he sees as a big problem as you can see HERE. He makes a couple of suggestions which we can agree on as being utterly sensible. But he fails to grasp that existing laws can deal with other issues, the problem is that they are never implemented. He goes on to make a number of proposals which are naive and would gag websites like this in the extremis making London markets, already a great place for fraudsters and shameless promoters to do business, even more friendly for such folks. They would be a disaster as I explain in detail.

I cover Providence Resources (PVR) and its dirtbag fat cat boss Tony O’Reilly Jnr, at Cabot Energy (TOAST), Mysale (MYSL) – another mark of shame for Burford’s Nomad Macquarie and for Sir Philip Green – and at IMC Exploration (IMC) which is toxic.

Instinctively I side with Block, however if today’s Mail is correct and he has closed much of his short while still issuing bearish tweets then is he any better than Chris Oil on Sefton or shamed broker SP Angel on Blue Jay (JAY).

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: WPCT directors find their hand forced and cover their arse's on Atom

My voice recovered a bit and so I squeeze out a bearcast covering all developments Neil Woodford including the fury of a lapdog journalist scorned (Jeff PressTrip) but also the awful problems WPCT faces as shown by the Atom Bank news. Put simply, a hopelessly compromised board cannot save this ship.

TRIUMPH: Financial Reporting Council says Tom Winnifrith complaint saw £800m First Derivatives have to alter its accounting policies

To those who say that ShareProphets is a joke site run by a fool or a knave, stick this letter below from the Financial Reporting Council where the sun don’t shine. Yet again the FRC is marking my homework with A*s.  To those cretins on the Bullettin Boards who abuse me daily I ask: when was the last time you got a regulator to force an £800 million market cap company to change its, overly aggressive and misleading, accounting policies?

There is a new RNS out today which begs massive questions which the company refuses to answer. And there is still the matter of the placing at 5.2p and more questions about whether Anglo African Oil & Gas (AAOG) will get that away in light of what it claimed on Friday.

Adding to my joy it is off to the mother-in-law’s for her Birthday. One lawyer’s letter was on behalf of Julie Meyer. I have reported Ms Lingerie on expenses and her lawyer to the North Wales Police in response to the letter you can see here. The other was from Stifel Europe. I discuss Stifel’s letter concerning Yourgene (YGEN), Stifel’s dire coverage of Woodford Patient Capital Trust (WPCT) and then how Sir Douglas Flint  of IP Group (IPO)  a big short  has come out to bat for Neil.

My series of exposes on Anglo Africa Oil & Gas (AAOG) have revealed a raft of corrupt deals by boss David Sefton. Most shareholders appeared to respond by attacking me. Today he ‘fessed on the deals in full, admitting that I was right. He then reversed and changed them which will save his shareholders £1.3 million. They should be thanking me and singing my praises. They will not be. Meanwhile I expose Sefton’s life of first class air travel – how long can this company afford to employ this shamed man?

That reading is Matthew  19 verses 23 and 24 (KJV):  Then said Jesus unto his disciples, Verily I say unto you, That a rich man shall hardly enter into the kingdom of heaven. And again I say unto you, It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God

Cynical Bear warned Benevolent AI would be Neil Woodford’s Kryptonite in May 2018. His coverage before then and his and our coverage since then was amazing and so far ahead of that of the Deadwood Press. The Sunday Times does some “analysis” today and almost gets the same answer we got years ago. Wankers. But it has a new angle: the next funding round will be a savage “down round”. I explain why this will blow Woodford apart exposing to all what a greedy charlatan and chancer he is.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: The placed Neil Woodford "scoop" in the Sunday Times - read through the spin, it could be endgame by July 1

Firstly a few words on Woodlarks. Your generosity has secured its funding for another year. So thanks to all who supported the rogue bloggers. Photos of myself and other old codgers crossing the line are HERE. If you have yet to donate we need just £690 more to hit £50,000 so please donate HERE. Then it is onto Woodford and taking out the spin of the stories in today’s Sunday Times it looks really grim and I explain why it could be end game by early July and also why I think we loyal Woodford Patient Capital Trust (WPCT) shareholders were misled at the recent AGM.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: So Roger Lawson & the share selling twit from Accesso, just how do you want to control me?

Roger Lawson of ShareSoc has not reacted well to yesterday’s article HERE but still refuses to say how he wants me and ShareProphets to be curbed and controlled. Over to you comrade and I think you really are talking bollocks. Then it is onto Red Rock Resources (RRR), Georgian Mining (GEO) and some hard questions about potential AIM Rules breaches at Westminster Group (WSG), run by loathsome ex Tory MP Tony Baldry of 3DM infamy. I remind you to risk a milkshake from a wretched lefty and vote the right way today. And I make another plea to those bearcast listeners yet to be heros, please donate now to Rogue Bloggers for Woodlarks HERE.
