Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: BREAKING: Interims from Bezant and Caerus do not add up, have Colin Bird & Fatty Cornish misled us all?

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

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Chill Brands manages minus revenues in H2

Normally I am envious of Robert, today I am not. On that note and now with the blessing of Aunt L, I tear, once again, into Colin Bird and Tiger Resources (TIR) after interims from Bezant Resources (BZT), then onto a shocker from Chill Brands (CHLL) and finally a laugh at former Neil Woodford dog Xeros (XSG) which is still spunking half a Bernie a month seeking to revolutionise the world of washing machines. Versarien (VRS) also gets a mention as I increase my forecasts of cashburn.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Colin Bird skewers himself Neil Woodford style so Tiger Royalties shares 80% overvalued

My Aunt Lucy ticked me off this morning for writing nasty things about folks. She wants me to be nicer to EVERYONE even folks like Colin Bird and Neill Ricketts. Hmmmmmmmmmm.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: 2 David Beckham dogs a spoofing day

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Who will dare to say that Boards full of straight white men will be delivering better returns in 2022

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

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast - falling out of love with the Tories including Andrew Bell

I start with the industrial scale economic illiteracy of today’s budget. It is non sensical and inequitable. Then onto one Tory, Andrew Bell, and Red Rock Resources (RRR). Enough is enough.  Then onto Deepverge (DVRG), nanosynth (NNN) and the soon to IPO Streak Gaming, the latest bastard offspring of Bixby and Edwards and one to avoid like the plague.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Time for eco loons to head to Devon to strip naked and confront David Bramhill again

In today’s podcast, I look at Darktrace (DARK) as its shares slump again, Avacta (AVCT) , Novacyt (NCYT), UK base rate rises, nanosynth (NNN) and the dishonesty of journalist smearing and trolling Union Jack Oil (UJO). PS, Matt Earl, the Dark Destroyer, tells me that he has added to his Darktrace short today.

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

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

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

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

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: The girl just ran out in front of my van

On the upside it is Joshua’s birthday. On the downside this girl just ran out in front of my van. She is okay and there were witnesses who told her mum that it was the girl’s fault. But it was shocking. Away from that I discuss Made.com (MADE), Toople (TOOP), Deepverge (DVRG), Audioboom (BOOM) and Bidstack (BIDS) and what those in the private chatrooms do not understand.

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

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

The first big call on Naked Wines (WINE) was 18 days ago HERE. Then there was a big follow up article on September 6 HERE.

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

It is much appreciated although I am not inquite  the right place to start on them today.

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

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

Tom Winnifrith BONUS Bearcast – Come on Sarah Willingham spill the beans on the Nightcap bad news

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

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Has the Parsley Box sex pest been canned? And is Alien Metals sticking the AIM Rule book up Uranus?

I start with a few logistics on Sharestock, the opt in for booking supper with my family and how you have just 60 hours to book a seat HERE. Then onto Parsley Box (MEAL) and the sex pest I exposed last week HERE before contacting the company., Cineworld (CINE), Avacta (AVCT), Zamaz (ZAMZ) and the useless FCA and the related party or not shenanigans at Alien Metals (UFO) and its Nomad (London’s worst) Roland “Fatty” Cornish.

I start with a few words on the logistics for Sharestock, the supper with my family and Wednesday’s deadline for booking HERE. Then on why Avacta (AVCT) shares will collapse at any time, on retail-aggeddon and then onto the Malcolm Stacey view that we should all be in cash. I disagree witn the old Guardian reading loon.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Parsley Box a toxic and deceitful culture, with all sorts of stakeholders getting screwed

It is one week to ShareStock and I am flat out today cooking, mowing and otherwise preparing for the event. If you have a ticket and want a home cooked supper remember you must opt in by emailing me. If you have not yet booked I shall stop taking bookings on Wednesday night so please do book HERE. Following on from yesterday’s sexual expose, I now look at how Parsley Box (MEAL) screwed its customers, defrauding them to stave off a cash crisis last Autumn. And what does that all mean for the company? It ain’t pretty.

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

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

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Why contemporary art is really not a better investment than what Warren Buffett buys

It is my ninth wedding anniversary today and I am a lucky fellow indeed. Tonight a romantic meal at the local boozer with the Mrs. Having discussed this and answering my own quiz question I move onto contemporary art where i am glad to be getting out as claims of hs historic performance offer no guide to the future. Then I look at Revolution Beauty (REVB), Boohoo.com (BOO), Tomco (TOM), Cake Box (CBOX), Made.com (MADE), Asilimar (ASLR), Dev Clever (DEV) and Audioboom (BOOM).

It is 8 days to Sharestock when 70-80 folks will spend the day in a tent on a raised garden on the banks of the River Dee, eight m,iles from Chester but in Wales!

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

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

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Liz Truss's dim VAT idea, more Cineworld goes bust news and back to Naked Wines

I start by responding to some of your comments on yesterday’s Naked Wines (WINE) podcast HERE. Then onto Liz Truss and why her VAT plan shows she is either dim or bonkers.In stating that inflation can be tackled with handouts rather than, as Maggie knew, with pain all round and, in this case, peace in Ukraine not an endless war, Ms Truss is lying to us all. Then onto the strange death of Cineworld (CINE).

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

Then it is on to UK and US house prices, that Moody’s forecast and related matters.

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

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

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

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

Tom Winnifrith BONUS Bearcast: Dev Clever refuses to admit it and Nigel Wray won't want to hear it, but it is almost bust - a £180m nest of snakes

Dev Clever (DEV) has some very belated results out today. Its failure to update on current cash tells you it is almost bust. So too, I suggest, is its proposed RTO target Veative. And also Asimilar (ASLR) the listed company most of whose NAV is Dev related. I analyse the results and explain, not that Nigel Wray will want to hear this, why the Dev valuation is a joke. This whole mess is a £180 million nest of snakes.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: More WhatsApp messages fall into my hands – Giles Clarke what is sauce for the goose

Yesterday I discussed how Ironveld Resources (IRON) via its PR man Tim Blythe of BlytheRay ands the awful Mail on Sunday was smearing Richard Jennings but ignoring the real issue which were breaches of AIM Rule 10 and 11. But what is sauce for the goose… I today read to you a string of remarks made by Giles Clarke, Ironveld’s chairman in WhatsApp messages now in my posession. After yesterday’s indignation perhaps Mr Clarke wants to consider his position. Then onto Abingdon Health (ABDX), liquidity drying up and what it can mean, Parsley Box (MEAL) and musicMagpie (MMAG). I also discuss Wishbone Gold (WSBN) urging a note of caution on “nearology.”

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

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

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

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

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast – Six Flags is the canary in the coal mine

I start  with dire numbers from the theme park operator and what they mean for companies such as MADE.com (MADE), Fevertree (FEVR) and ProCook (PROC). Then I look at the former WPCT (SUPP), Revolution Beauty (REVB) and Canadian Overseas Petroleum (COPL), now a great low risk short, as the price is capped by the death spiral in place. That cap can only move lower.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: When it comes to customer service the French can be such xxxxx

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

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Wildlife diversity spotted on snake hill and, in a similar vein, Zak Mir does a deal with himself

Then it is onto Zak Mir’s sordid Lift Global Ventures (LFT), more Clem Chambers gimps getting the boot at ADVFN (AFN) and Bidstack (BIDS) where after today’s piss poor interims, even Stevie Wonder can see that the writing is on the wall about the next bailout placing.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast - when is the placing at Oxford Cannabinoid?

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

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

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

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast - life in the old dog yet!

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

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Is Sarah Willingham delusional?

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

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

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

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

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

I run you through the implied maths, rather than its adjusted EBITDA and other fantasies, demonstrating why by this time next year, it will have gone bust.  It is a zero, however much the bird in charge protests otherwise. Target price 0p by July 2023.

Then onto how Barclays (BARC) may strand me in Greece and why the Mrs reckons I am wrong on how gay is your stockbroker.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

On shares, I look at Edenville Energy (EDL) and its new board member, Paul Ryan (remember him?).

Well maybe not. It is a marginal call. Then it is onto SPACs and the schoolboy error of Wildcat Petroleum (WCAT). Finally AO World (AO) which looks screwed. I describe how rational behaviour by four groups of stakeholders will ensure a cash struggling company goes down.]

I do not regret buying more shares, but I am, nevertheless, cross. I explain this, before looking at Dev Clever (DEV) and something very fishy indeed. After that, I discuss Ben’s Creek (BEN), the Adam Wilson CV and why this will all end in tears. Finally, an IPO: Alteration Earth (ALTE), and why you should avoid it like the plague.

Then it is onto Oxford Biodynamics (OBD) and Shield Therapeutics (STX) – will its placing be at 5p or not at all?.  Then onto Pennon (PNN), sewage and Feargal Sharkey.

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

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

Today, the shares are 10.5p, after awful finals in which, as I explain in this bonus podcast, the company again – by omission rather than act – materially misleads investors.

Yet this afternoon, it is the school sports day, and the whole family is off to watch him. Discussing what lies ahead with him as we walked to school this morning, filled me with pride. In the main podcast, I look at Forward Partners (FWD) – another disastrous 2021 IPO; Petropavlovsk (POG), as it races to zero; Genflow Biosciences (GENF); MGC Pharmaceuticals (MXC) – placing ahoy; and Verditek (VDTK), where things could get very messy within days.

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

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

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

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

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast – today's news is a £240m damning of Neil Woodford's greed and wickedness

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

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast - why Genflow is the most uninvestable stock in London and what now for a house price crash?

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

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

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

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

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

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

I contrast these Police visits with the way they failed me when I exposed the Chill Brands (CHLL) fraud, and was then harassed and smeared – I wonder how the guilty men, notably those at Buchanan Communications, feel this afternoon. Today, I deserve a shed load of ouzo after numerous triumphs and, in turn, I look at Chill, [email protected] Capital (SYME), Bidstack (BIDS) and Vast Resources (VAST). Actually, I am joking about the ouzo: the kids and I are off to buy a hosepipe extension, some lavender plants, and an ice cream for Joshua. That is our reward.

Then it is onto Canadian Overseas Petroleum (COPL), where today’s placing vindicates me. I argue that a 20.75p share price is a compelling shorting opportunity on a risk-reward basis. Matthew and his dog will enjoy that section, as Arthur Millholland, the snake oil salesman at Canadian, really is talking shite in today’s release. I am so angry.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast - all about THG

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

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

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

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

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


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

I am busy preparing for that and also sorting out the garden ahead of a Greek trip, hence a late bearcast. In that, I discuss whether foolks really are paid to post rubbish on Bulletin Boards, why some companies set up a new holding company and at Carnival (CCL) and elsewhere why an obsession with E &S lets poor G ( shocking greed) take place.

I have spoken to both Steve O’Hara and Stuart Ashman. As Les points out in the comments section, the silver lining for you is the postponement of my retirement – but not for long.

I draw your attention to a real share trading oddity at Magpie before heading on to  discuss whether Vast Resources (VAST) or Catenae (CTEA) will go bust first. Finally a detailed look at Dignity (DTY) where that combination of zero earnings visibility, past overcharging of punters and a wreck of a balance sheet spells even more gloom ahead.

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

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

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

My 10 are Supply, Chill Brands, Versarien, Avacta (AVCT), Wildcat Petroleum (WCAT), Amigo (AMGO), Cineworld (CINE), Argo Blockchain (ARB), Verditek (VDTK) and Tern (TERN). I also look at the oil price and consider whether those sitting on gains might bank a few profits.

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

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

Then onto Hargreaves Lansdowne (HL) and finally as to why I am so proud of the Mrs which is,in a way, linked to Hargreaves.

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

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

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

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

In the Bearcast I look at Shield Therapeutics (STX) – a stand out short where the share price collapse is only just starting – UK Oil & Gas (UKOG), Oxford Cannabinoid (OCTP) and the fraud [email protected] Capital (SYME).

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Then a long look at Osirum (OSI). Obviously it is a worthless POS but what does its deeply discounted placing today mean for YOUR portfolio?

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

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

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

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

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

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

Answers in the comments section below. My sense is yes and that his behavioiur is down to massive scale money printing and what comes with it. After that I consider the SEC investigation into the bear community then answer your emails on Kefi (KEFI) and what is happening in Ethiopia this very day.

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

Then I reflect on an excellent piece by Maynard Paton on Cake Box (CBOX) which you can read HERE. I comment on some of the excellent points he makes but add in half a dozen of my own, notably comparing boasted net cash and net interest costs but also the shameful CEO pump and dump and the macro headwind given the demographic of its end user base. This is probably not another Patisserie Valerie but at 320p it is a stonking short.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

After a rant on that count which will have Matthew’s dog in delirious joy I move onto Parsley Box (MEAL) where things are even worse than the trading statement suggests, Good Energy (GOOD) whose profits warning would have delighted Uncle Christopher Booker, the wrong sort of wind FFS, and Bens Creek (BEN) where more red flags emerge.

I discuss this. Then it is onto Verditek (VDTK) which looks to owe us all a trading statement and is almost certainly bust already. The target there, at 2.9p, is 0p. I also have words for the FCA here on Financial Promotions and why it should be sending Richard “Gollum” Gill to jail. Finally I look at Eurasia Mining (EUA)

Finally I look at last week’s base rate rise and what it means and what happens next. It will not be pleasant. As an addendum I discuss our 2022 share tips of the year which will start on Boxing Day – there will be between 20 and 25 from the ShareProphets team, a few details are being finalised hence the imprecise final number.

Then I look at ADM Energy (ADME) and that RNS reach issue again, tell you about a psychic moron who owns shares in [email protected] Capital (SYME) and then I discuss, at length, Skinbiotherapeutics (SBTX) after a chat with CEO Stuart Ashman today and on the back of that I have bought more shares in the company.

Tom Winnifrith bearcast - the dossier that made my skin crawl

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

Or even been hospitalised by it in the epicentre?  The answer is the same number of times that I have shagged Cheryl Cole this week. But the market is tumbling. I discuss the real data behind this variant, the wild scaremongering and whether this is a buying opportunity in the world of shares? I referred to a bird from Edinburgh University who is the worst of the experts on forecasting HERE and to data from three continguous US states HERE, from Wales and England HERE and from central European countries centred on Hungary HERE.

Airstrip One is a rotten and corrupt place these days where folks like him are above the law.  Then I look at Cineworld (CINE), Big Sofa (BST), MyHealthchecked (MHC) and Horizonte Minerals (HZM) before looking at the peripheral issues raised by IQE’s (IQE) disastrous news and also at what is the real valuation, from someone who has called it 100% correctly.

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

On the basis of what I describe the so -alled independent NEDs need to consider their position, the Nomad Allenby needs to force an immediate repayment of the sums involved and the company, already seriously uninvestable though capitalised at £32.1 million is a 100% bargepole.

Then it is onto Cineworld (CINE) and, with the graphic below – hat tip EB. I explain why its trading statement is so deceptive and why the shares are still a sell.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: its V Day!

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

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

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Brian Basham demands a retraction

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

I start with a few words on last night’s video recording with the All Party Parliamentary Group on Personal Banking and Fairer Financial Services. With reference to it, if I sound conceited it is because, in my humble opinion, I have every right to be. The Alien expose to which I refer is HERE.

Then I look at impending lockdown lunacy  and at one company which, i suspect, is already struggling but which will be hit for six, NightCap (NGHT). I skip onto Bezant (BZT) another Colin Bird pump and place, Dev Clever (DEV) – a stock for financial masochists only – Ben’s Creek (BEN) with a new shocking expose of its link with a disgraced financier and then the Woodfordesque dealings involving Boanerges Ltd (BNRG), WeShop, Vela (VELA) and BrandShield (BRSD).

I discuss Kefi (KEFI) and what is happening in Ethiopia. I know more than all the BB savants but there is only so much that I can say. Then I look at the David Beckham-linked swizzle at Guild ESports (GILD) and, by implication, Cellular Goods (CBX) both of which will end in tears and be posterboys for the bezzles at the fag end of a bull market.

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

I ponder yesterday’s news which is terrible for Britain and which I find terribly disappointing at a personal level regarding the fraudster Rob Terry.

I consider the Domino’s (DOM) trading statement and the issue Rishi Sunak faces on VAT.  This was a short working day for Jaya reasons, I’ll be back with a longer podcast on what should be a full day on Friday.

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

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

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

To be fair they agreed with me and think the villagers are, again, acting like total poltroons in harassing me whereas the previous owners were allowed to dump asbestos and so whatever they wanted.

At 1p, a £21 million market cap is about £21 million too high in my book. I also discuss Jubilee Metals (JLP) and Mark Slater and that links nicely to an IPO I am dodging and I explain why I am passing on what appeared a likeable and competent team.

I look at Mercantile Ports (MPL) and PrimaryBid and then what I plan, or hope, to do next about the fraud Umuthi (UHS), ask the victims to tell their stories. I look at Paul Johnson’s Power Metal Resources (POW) and its latest news which takes me back to 2007 and Mark Watson Mitchell’s Yellowcake. I comment on Asimilar (ASLR) and then go to town on Deepverge (DVRG) and its journalist trolling cock of a CEO Gerry Brandon explaining why I believe investors were materially misled in the run up to the £10 million June 7 placing and why the company is, for a variety of reasons, a total bargepole.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast - More from the Umuthi fraud bombshell and the key valuable lessons (so far)

Today has been dominated by exposing the Umuthi fraud. There is a stack more to come on this over the weekend but I hope you have enjoyed it so far. I discuss another couple of aspects of this case and lessons we should alllearn. Then it is onto Audioboom (BOOM) and All Active Asset Management (AAA).

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

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

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: 3 excuses for me

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Either quitting or not turning up or quoting daft prices or saying they can’t do anything till whenever. It is all part of the inflationary storm and I discuss that.

So I asked ADVFN's boss if his company enjoyed giving a platform discussing the death of a journalist, that is to say me: Tom Winnifrith

It has just been brought to my attention that ADVFN has been hosting a (brief) thread dedicated to discussing my demise. It has been live since February 17 as you can see below. It’s only point is discussing my demise something spurred on by my exposes of and obtaining the suspension of, the fraud that is [email protected] Capital (SYME). Does ADVFN really think that offering a platform to discuss such a matter is appropriate. Will it take firm action and not only can the thread but ban the sick mind who created it? I have asked the question of ADVFN Boss Mike Hodges this morning?

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: I am going to report MyHealthChecked to AIM Regulation

Today’s scoop on MyHealthChecked (MHC) has moved the shares and looks like great news. But it might not be. What I have engaged in is not as one moron on ADVFN suggests “willy waving” or “ramping” but good journalism, that is to say breaking news someone does not want published.  MyHealthChecked has broken AIM Rules and so created a disorderly market and though I own shed loads of shares I must be consistent and report the company. AIM Regulation should be slapping someone’s wrists. I also comment on Helium One (HE1) and Verditek (VDTK)

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Three failures by the FCA that will come to haunt the useless tossers

In today’s bearcast I look at those failures in detail: Wildcat Petroleum (WCAT), Tirupati (TGR) where you might brace yourself for some language some may deem sexist and not very 2021, and [email protected] Capital (SYME) where today’s extraordinary news really should alarm any holder. I also revisit Argo Blockchain (ARB) which has published its US listing prospectus HERE which I comment on. En passant, I look at share trading patterns in  Versarien (VRS) and Chill Brands (CHLL) and what they tell us about sentiment in what were last year’s Bulletin Board darlings. They are just so 2020 afren’t they?

I explain why I hold MyHealthChecked (MHC) ahead of a trading update within weeks which will, I am sure, be cracking and why it should prosper medium term. But I admit that could change.

Then I look at backing proven failures or chaps who wave red flags mentioning Sensyne (SENS), Nigel Wray, me and a few others. That leads me on to the wall of silence from Central Copper Resources about its AIM IPO and me explaining what is really going on, notably at broker Brandon Hill. Finally I look at today’s news from Skinbiotherapeutics (SBTX) and where, as a result, I expect its shares to be at Christmas.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: feeling a real sense of national shame and deep sadness over Afghanistan... and also less safe

I start with this non financial matter as although the Mrs regards these as tragic events in a land far far away, I think of the pointless British deaths, of the increased terror risk back home, of the shameful way we are abandoning those who helped us of the shameful way we turned a blind eye to Industrial scale corruption. What is happening in Afghanistan is not only terribly sad for its people but it is also a national shame. Then I look at a pointless name change at Zoetic (ZOE) and of the spoof US OTC listing announced by Dispersion (DEFI) something that is itself a red flag.

I start with the covid tests, the Mrs and I having just taken one for 50 euros each here in Greece. sadly we both passed so will head back to Wales on Monday where our test, in Wales, will cost more than 100 Euro. I explain why we in the UK are being so utterly scammed for these pointless tests as I start a three part series on my own site on covid lunacy in this part of Greece HERE. Then I flag up a good bit of what is in tomorrow’s new shocking Zoetic (ZOE) dossier which will again place the company in the threat of severe US regulatory peril even after it covered up all the breaches I exposed last time! Finally, I discuss Iconic (ICON) and why i want it to go bust - it is the only way that a member of the Tory chumocracy – toxic David Sefton – will get his just desserts.

Forget subbing Zak Mir’s copy for eternity this is the real deal. On a lighter note I examine timelines of placings, director share dumps, profits warnings and ramptastic statements at Best of the Best (BOTB) and Braveheart Investment  Group (BRH). In a world where anyone cared any more there would be a full steward’s on both. Of course nobody gives a damn and the world moves on. Nothing to see here sir.

I start with a few more words on why I hate the Greek seaside which the Mrs forces me to go to and which has put me in a foul mood as a result. It always does as I noted a few weeks ago. I then look at the ramptastic disaster that is Helium One (HE1) and then, mentioning today’s Pello expose, I go onto a detailed analysis of the position at the fraud Zoetic and why the shares, now down to 39.25p, are heading to between 0p and 5p.

Then I look at the Optibiotix (OPTI) trading statement  discussing it and Skinbiotherapeutics (SBTX). Finally back to a wretch: Versarien (VRS) and its shite results which show why we must get Ian Westbrook over the line – he is now, with a slightly extended deadline – just £1775 shy of making the loathsome Neill Ricketts sweat in court. Please keep giving those tenners and twenties HERE

Ian Westbrook may well be within £1950 of being able to make the loathsome pig Neill Ricketts sweat like an AIM CEO so with 22 hours to go, please keep donating HERE. Meanwhile, Neill is up to his old tricks of disseminating over-egged “news” via non RNS means as I expose HERE. Surely the Oxymorons must act?

Good news travels fast, bad news is delayed. The real reason for the delay is explained in this podcast. I also cover discussions with the regulators on UK Oil & Gas (UKOG), [email protected] Capital (SYME), the John Story episode and getting the shyster resigned from Escape Hunt (ESC). I speculate on what he did next. And there is a final appeal for Ian Westbrook. Do not let the loathsome pig Neill Ricketts win by default please donate HERE

We are still talking to two potentially generous donors so please do keep the tenners flowing HERE to stop the Versarien (VRS) penny share huckster winning by default. Then onto lying on AIM and also covering up bad news with late releases. I look at [email protected] Capital (SYME), Verditek (VDTK), Powerhouse Energy (PHE), Cellular Goods (CBX), Escape Hunt (ESC) and, of course, the fraud Zoetic (ZOE). The stench of chumocracy corruption is tife in the City as liars go unpunished. It is most depressing.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Finally a few words with Cliff Weight of ShareSoc re Financial Promotions.

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.

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).

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.

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 - 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.

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).

Then a few thoughts on why the Tories are pissing off Tory voters in Chesham and elsewhere.

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: This is bull market madness: Musk, Tesla, Bixby and Edwards

I start with the frustrations of a visit to Tesco (TSCO) Wrexham. Piss poor customer service. Then I look at Manolete (MANO) where I smell more trouble ahead. Then I move onto bull market madness and how it will end in tears for my mother-in-law, Elon Musk, Tesla, Bitcoin, Jonathan Bixby, Mike Edwards, NFT Investments, Clarify Pharma, Argo Blockchain (ARB), Novum Securities and Uncle Tom Cobley and all.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Picking up Olaf's mother Big Nose at the Mars Bar - this is relevant

Well not really and it was a long time ago. But it comes up when I discuss NightCap (NGHT) and why the numbers are all bonkers and it will end in tears. Then I look at Mirriad (MIRI) and ADVFN (AFN) parallels. Finally Amigo (AMGO) where the directors make threats that would be ruinous for them personally if they implement them. As ever, if you are bored, why not donate to a wonderful cause HERE.

Then I move to Amigo (AMGO), the fraud Zoetic (ZOE) and the fate of those placing shares, Agronomics (ANIC) and then asking if my mother-in-law is a canary in a coalmine where all sorts of bubbles are set to burst.

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).

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.

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.

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.

In the rest of the podcast I take issue with ex soccer player Andrew Johnson on tax and then look in detail at the claims made by Versarien (VRS) about its graphene enhanced face nappies and why they do not stack up at two levels and, as such, why there really should be a UK product recall.

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.

The Deliveroo (ROO) IPO has bombed. Is this 2021’s version of lastminute.com in 2001? I ask and explain why I would not be interested. Then I look at Verditek (VDTK) and Bidstack (BIDS) and try to suggest a pricing and timing for their next bailout rescue placings. Now it is off to Wrexham tip with some old tyres because I lead that sort of exciting life.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: 2 shockers from the housing market and that truly shocking Julie Meyer expose

The telephone call harassment started at 6.43 AM today and woke up three of us. I hope the North Wales police will act. The DOS attacks continue and last night also saw a stream of abusive hate-filled emails from temporary and thus untraceable accounts. What fun. Tomorrow is my second Woodlarks training walk so think of me in the Welsh rain as I target 12 miles or a shade more and please make a donation HERE. In today’s bearcast, I relay two shocking tales from the housing market and then discuss today’s shocking Julie “lingerie on expenses” Meyer expose.

Then I discuss 2 acid tests today for the FCA[email protected] Capital (SYME) and Lyin’ Chris Cleverly’s planned RTO into Stranger Holdings (STHP). Then I look at St James House (SJH) and wonder if the taxman needs to have a butcher’s at 4 of its disposals involving John Botros. Then it is onto IQE (IQE) and why Malcolm Stacey and thirsty Paul Scott are wrong. Finally a look at Jubilee Metals (JLP). I look at the fundamentals after today’s interims and conclude that the shares should be well North of 20p. Then I discuss the matter with the world’s leading analyst of PGM stocks beginning with J for his input.

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.

Anyhow, I have spent some time chatting to North Wales Police about comrade Seth Freedman and the Zoetic (ZOE) inspired menacing phone calls of last month. They are taking it seriously. In the podcast, I discuss this plus the news that Hargreaves (HL) may be sued over Neil Woodford and the myth that there is a short position in small and mid caps to be squeezed.

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.

All is revealed on my latest video show out today.  Thirdly, my main energies remain on new family enquiries. Then there is a detailed look at Marchale (MAC), Chris Akers and its patently forced and misleading Trading statement.

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: Is Symphony Environmental a stonking short?

I start with the news that we are backing Harcus Parker to get cash back for victims of Neil Woodford. Then I look at Versarien (VRS) and its new improved face nappy, at Iconic (ICON) and the madness at NightCap (NGHT) – since when is one rented London bar (currently shut) worth £4 million? Then San Leon Energy (SLE), en passant, there is a detailed look at Symphony Environmental (SYM).

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: the million morons suffer a damp squib with Metro Bank

I start with the Mrs being phoned by a fraudster. Then it is a natural move to Elon Musk and bitcoin before going onto the Million Morons on Reddit and a damp squib with Metro Bank (MTRO). I comment on looking daft for eons before vindication so look at Nightcap (NGHT) and then at Bahamas Petroleum (BPC). Then it is on to Abingdon Health (ABDX) and Yourgene (YGEN).

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: As it happens I encountered a dead badger today

I start on the subject of badgers and how I met the 1 of the only good sort earlier. Then onto how investors also fail to discount regulatory risk, ref Zoetic (ZOE), a few words on Metro Bank (MTRO) and the million morons march and about what it says about the investment climate. Finally On Rishi Sunak’s idea of a sales tax on o0nline shoppers and why it is wrong at every level

Tom Winnifrith Video Shareshow No 18: A mining stock I've called wrong twice in 5 weeks plus Ross Norman with his gold, silver & PGM targets

And now from Wales, by just 30 yards, it is my new weekly video show. This costs 99p per episode, and you can either listen to, or watch, some sparky interviews with  Tony Manini of Asiamet (ARS) which, I am starting to think, I have called wrong twice in 5 weeks and then gold guru Ross Norman on where the precious metals are going this year. As a Jubilee Metals (JLP) shareholder his biggest call is the most exciting for me. As ever, on the macro view and on bitcoin, Ross is brilliant. Then from me I discuss where UK small cap shares will go in the current climate. You can access the show HERE

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: Sorry Mr Poulden I cannot show a double standard but I am not selling my shares

I start with today’s news from Wishbone Gold (WSBN). Despite the appointment of THIS MAN, I remain a loyal shareholder but the appointment is wrong. I can’t show a double standard here. I then look at market madness with reference to Iconic (ICON), Zoetic (ZOE), Versarien (VRS) & Eden Research (EDEN) while also discussing bottom fishing in retail after the bid interest at French Connection (FCCN).

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?

Yes that horrific news for shareholders in [email protected] Capital (SYME) will be out in the morning. 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.

I start with the question of who should pay for lockdown via taxes or inflation. 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.

Then it is onto Colin Bird and Jubilee Metals (JLP), Rio Ferdinand and the Gym Group (GYM) and Toxic Dave Sefton and Iconic (ICON) in the wake of Nigel’s bombshell from earlier. One of the three is a bit of a hero and, to give you a clue neither Bird or toxic Dave ever played for West Ham.  But would you want any of the three on the board of a company in which you are invested.

It does bring me to why celebrity endorsed investments are so often utter stinkers, looking back at those backed by David Beckham, Fergie, Linney himself, Fergie and at the NightCap AIM IPO driven by ghastly Sarah Willingham with no conflicts of interest at all!

Fear not I will eat my hat on video just give me a day or two. In today’s podcast I look at my macro assumptions for 2021 and a few stocks that come out of them as obviuous longs or shorts, Natch Red Rock Resources (RRR) of hat eating infamy is in the former category big time. No sniggering at the back. And talking of videos, there is another coming on New Year’s Day which will enrage our in house Euro loon Jonathan Price.

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.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast - after today's news UKOG only 75% overvalued and Colin Bird's conflicts of interest at Bezant

I start with Joshua’s Advent calendar. Then I look at Nakama (NAK) and how the Green Lord has worked his magical powers of levitation and what happens next. Then at UK Oil & Gas (UKOG), just 75% overvalued after today’s news. Then I look at Bezant (BZT), today’s acquisition and accusations of conflicts of interests for Colin Bird. He is still not speaking to me but I take a more charitable view of his actions here than some will. But I still regard them as unwise.

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.

And now from Wales, by just 30 yards, it is my new weekly video show.

I discuss averaging down  and after news this week Fox is a rare case where that is justified. This will – as I explain in the show – be a multibagger from here. Meanwhile Dr Doom is now a bull. we discuss sharers, bonds, real estate, bitcoin and gold in a must listen to interview. Then there are a few thoughts on companies you must NOT own, including Powerhouse Energy (PHE).You can access the show HERE

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 who is to be my Christmas carol villain of the year then it has to be Welsh First Minister Mark Drakeford who today has just gone complelely bonkers as I describe HERE. 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.

On Joshua’s Advent calender the shepherds go to Bethlehem. That is almost true, well a bit true as I discuss. 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.

This issue for Darren was prompted by me discussing “cousin” Axl Rose yesterday.  I start by discussing day 12 of Joshua’s Advent calendar, then what Darren needs to record for you this Yuletide. 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.

I start with today’s Advent window and then turn to the issue of last minute talks with the EU regarding Brexit. 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. I also look at Novacyt (NCYT) and the pointlessness of debating with those whose starting point is not listening to what I have ever said, or reading what I have ever written, and then attacking me for what I have not said!

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.

This summer the Rogue Bloggers walk saw us raise enough to ensure that this amazing charity will not go bust despite the lockdown which has been a disaster for it.  Activities are still massively constrained and the Christmas Grotto which brings unbelievable pleasure to 200 severely handicapped or very ill kids each year will have to be a virtual one this year.

I start with events in Europe and what to do with your shares, what to sell tomorrow, as a continent goes under house arrest and markets puke. Then it is onto the contest between Donald Trump and Joe Biden which is too close to call. But, if you put a gun to my head, I call it for Trump and explain why.

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.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Verditek, I told y'all!

I start with a few words on my preparations for tomorrow’s funeral which will mean my absence from this site for a day.  Then onto the election in America where our boy is on a bit of a roll - a full analysis of recent developments is in a special podcast HERE.  Then it is on to Verditek (VDTK), Versarien (VRS), Covid shorts and longs including, sorry Three Brains, Carnival (CCL). Finally a look at grossly overvalued Mirriad (MIRI).

The vicar sends me a stern email about Dad's funeral - the Church of England is failing its parishioners monstrously

I have been sent a stern email by the Vicar in Shipston about tomorrow’s funeral for my father. She knows my views and position but reminds me that the Church is only following the law in requiring us all to muzzle up and not sing. Naturally I have replied but the attachment below, the Church’s guidance on Covid prevention, strikes me as a monstrous deception which, in time, it will be forced to recognise and will come to regret.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: The £15m going to David Beckham from the Guild Esports IPO

I start with a few notes on  preparations for Thursday’s funeral following my piece on mad Covid rules and Dad’s ceremony HERE. Then I look at Verditek (VDTK) and Versarien (VRS) where the wheels realy are coming off. Then it is onto a defence of my friend Tim Blackstone and my analysis of Metals Exploration (MTL). 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.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Even by the standards of Welsh Labour Carolyn Harris MP is terrifyingly stupid

In today’s podcast I recount three crossings of the border out of house arrest Wales into free England and on a visit to a local store. I discuss Carolyn Harris MP on kettles, a woman who makes Matt Hancock seem like Einstein. I discuss what a dead cat bounce actually is with reference to Malcolm’s article of earlier and also why I’m glad fund managers are telling MP’s where to stick it when it comes to who should run Boohoo.com (BOO)

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: 2 hours to house arrest here in Wales

For reasons which are nothing to do with the insanity of Mark Drakeford, I cannot work properly today at the Welsh Hovel hence this bearcast is short.  I explain those reasons and hope to be back to normal by Saturday.

I ponder this grave question after considering the illogical hateful restrictions we face in Shipston next week.

Then I discuss three sets of builders here at the Welsh Hovel who must be starting to dislike me. Then it is onto Centamin (CEY), Bidstack (BIDS) and Network International (NETW) – a £1.5 billion short?

It is libellous tosh. Then to the US election. I am almost ready to call both the Senate and the Presidency for the Dems. I called the House that way eons ago.

This is bonkers. KPMG has made Watchstone shareholders far richer than they should be. I explain that and then discuss how if I was in charge and had a time machine, we would have stopped this fraud ever happening. Without the time machine, what would I do now?

I pray that Donald Trump and the fragrant Melania recover from Covid and unlike godless liberals who tweet about praying for things I do actually pray and to someone I believe in. However Lucian has a bet on Mike Pence to be the next President and I discuss this. I then move on to look at UK Oil & Gas UKOG) where I diod tell y’all, Attis Oil & Gas (AOGL) and share rampers from the AIM swamps, Purplebricks (PURP) and also the latest mystery at [email protected] Capital (SYME),the worthless POS from the province of Norfolk.

I am staying here but need some supplies so must rush to get them from a store where they don’t make you wear a face nappy before the North Wales fuzz sets up roadblocks on the bridges over the River Dee. Before my Dukes of Hazard style contraband run, I discuss various conspiracy theories over Rolls Royce (RR.) and IAG (IAG). I look at the massive issues now hanging over Verditek (VDTK) as I expose its latest desperate ramping and another past lie.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Why Xtract stinks and moving towards a win for sleepy Joe Biden

I end with today’s placing news from Xtract Resources (XTR) and the range of reasons why this has become a pariah stock.  I start with two excuses for lateness. In the middle, what I made of last night’s Presidential debate. Trump, I judge, won it but not with a knockout. 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.

I am in a bit of a rush as I prepare to head to Shipston on family business. First though filling skips, making jam and gin, emptying the kitchen. Then I answer Malcolm’s question on target prices with reference to two companies you know well. Then it is onto the assumption made by dim Tories like Lucy Allan MP about how all members of certain industries would thrive without lockdown. I know the industry she refers to better than anyone and she’s taking horse. The same madness is demonstrated with the way the dim Tories chuck cash at Versarien (VRS), the folly of which I expose again today HERE.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Explosive analysis of industrial scale fraud & deception at Verditek

I have already demonstrated HERE and HERE and HERE how AIM darling Verditek (VDTK) has deceived investors in peace time and also in wartime, i.e the run up to placing after placing after placing. 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.

Then [email protected] Capital (SYME), a good section on Verditek (VDTK) and finally a detailed appraisal of Caspian Sunrise (CASP) after its interims.

It responded with a wankerish statement insulting ShareProphets and which was full of waffle. Its shares are tanking today and are now down 40%+ since our report. is there anything it wishes to say?  Elsewhere I look at Symphony Environmental (SYM) and Covid madness, at Brighton Pier (PIER) and the maths of the hospitality industry and finally take on Gary Newman on Red Rock Resources (RRR) suggesting he is blinded by #BellDerangementSyndrome and so cannot look at facts. What would Red Rock trade at if it had a different boss I wonder?

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.

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 have mentioned the sale of leasehold properties by housebuilders such as Barratt Developments (BDEV) before and regard their actions as utterly wrong. I am an ethical capitalist, they are profiteering. So I welcome the news that the Competition & Markets Authority is now investigating. It is not why I would not own shares in this sector but it is good news anyway. I also cover Kefi (KEFI), Vela (VELA) and the scoundrels at con [email protected] Capital (SYME), its latest “news” and past lies.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: My great grandmother was illegitimate but James Parsons is a complete and utter bastard

I have been doing good work on the mystery of who my great grandmother really was. My great aunt, her daughter the actress Anna Lee, did some work, as you can see HERE, but I have gone a step further and have agreement to do a DNA test to solve the mystery once and for all. I discuss this distraction then Sound Energy (SOU), Optibiotix (OPTI), Cobra Resources (COBR) and 7 Digital (7DIG).

Tom Winnifrith bearcast: what interests me today is the lesbianisation of history

I am prompted by my hero Mr Peter Tatchell and having checked with another hero, Mr Kelvin MacKenzie, that I am not misquoting him, I shall be penning a piece tonight on this fascinating subject. Elsewhere I look at Pendragon (PDG), Nostra Terra Oil & Gas (NTOG), Wishbone Gold (WSBN), Tern (TERN), Dev Clever (DEV) and [email protected] Capital (SYME) and why the FCA MUST act against the last two enterprises on my list today.

Tom Winnifrith & Zak Mir cartoon - [email protected] Capital

The other day, the Sith Lord Zak Mir produced a slavish piece of PR puffery dressed up as journalism suggesting folks buy shares in [email protected] (SYME) at c0.7p – a £250 million valuation. It was vomit inducing and, even by the standards of my semi-literate and utterly innumerate friend, it was utterly moronic.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast - is this the smelliest nest of vipers on the London market?

On the exact occasion of my 7th wedding anniversary I am off to see my father so just a brief bearcast from me. Well quite a long one actually but it is recorded early. I start with Carnival Cruises (CCL), then TrainLine (TRN) and then the stinking nest of vipers that is Asimilar (ASLR), Dev Clever (DEV), All Active Asset Capital (AAA), Mark Horrocks, Chris Akers, Novum and Peterhouse Capital. Hold your noses as you listen.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: [email protected] Capital boss Zamboni plays hostile press the way the king of the fraudsters Sam Antar suggests

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.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast - the final straw from Rishi and why [email protected] is such a scandal

Many of you will be waking up to news in all the papers as to how Rishi Sunak is to steal your cash to pay for folks stealing money on furlough fraud, stealing it via criminal Covid loans and to pay for pay rises for the idle bedwetting teachers, Policemen taking a knee and GPs on £100,000 sitting at home and taking the odd call on skype from patients. This is the last straw and sends out such an appalling message about doing business in Britain. Then onto today’s shocking revelations about [email protected] Capital (SYME) and why it is such a scandal.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Can Trump Win? Everything says it is getting more likely and why this does matter to British Investors?

I called it for Trump in September 2016 when the media classes wrote him off. I am not calling it for him yet, but it is looking better and better, hence more fake news reports from the BBC and the rest of the Mainstream Media to the contrary. 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.

Tom Winnifrith Video Shareshow No 8: Well over 2 hours of gold, me on corporate lying, Richard Poulden and Steve Moore

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

I start with a look at Boohoo (BOO) shares in which a falling on back of reports in a paper founded on profits from the slave trade that suppliers in Leicester are using slave labour. Then I ask if Luke Johnson or I am more sociable and what this means about folks stopping working from home. Then onto gold stocks in general, Hummingbird (HUM), Kefi (KEFI), Red Rock Resources (RRR) and Ariana (AAU). I look at Amigo (AMGO) , Attis Oil (AOGL) and finally why today’s shocking Versarien (VRS) expose really could indicate a major scandal. Footnote:

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).

My main podcast today was a history lesson for the loathsome BBC HERE. In terms of bearcast I am not so inpired today, I promise I shall be more on fire tomorrow but do comment on why Harry Adams of Kefi Gold & Copper (KEFI) is share dealing like a dervish. I also look at the rebel at Inspirit (INSP) and explain why I think he is doomed to fail and why anyone buying the shares needs their head examined.

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.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Will Asimilar be the much deserved Waterloo of Chris Akers? This stinks!

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.

London Millionaire liberal elitist, our own in-house Euro Loon Jonathan Price, faces house, or should I say mansion, arrest within days. About bloody time. I joke with him on email but I am not sure he sees the funny side. After that digression I discuss Red Rock Resources (RRR) – do you believe Andrew Bell?  – Amigo (AMGO), Sunrise Resources (SRES), Cobra Resources (COBR) and the very odd price movement at joke company Anglesey Mining (AYM). Cheryl Cole gets two mentions in this podcast

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: the stink of corrupt journalism and Jeff Prestridge and the shocking scandal at R4E

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.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Why Malcolm is wrong on shares and housing

I refer to Malcolm Stacey’s earlier piece and take him to task, although I discuss the regional housing shifts he mentions in a more charitable light. I look at the new IPSX Exchange and suggest it has a problem. Then I respond to PL’s charge that I support unethical capitalism involving screwing everyone to make maximum profits. I don’t think this and I don’t think it makes any sense but that does not mean that tree-hugging capitalism makes any sense either, except for Sandra Bates and other members of the 1%.

Tom Winnifrith Bonus Bearcast: Bell, Adams & Bird are only heros because gold is going up, right?

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 also look at the latest Covid data which spells death for Catenae (CTEA) and doom for others and, with a hat tip to the great Peter Tatchell to covid profiteering by Burberry (BRBY). 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. I also explain why comrade PL is taking nonsense on ESG spend adding value.

Well there is an annoying ex for starters. Then the folks taking the piss on a sash window here at the Welsh Hovel. Then PL defending Katie Potts spunking £1 million of other folks cash on Bidstack (BIDS)  and why following TR1s is an error. I look at Wishbone Gold (WSBN), trying to be realistic, more cracking news from Xtract Resources (XTR) and at sording pumping and dumping at Europa Metals (EUZ). No doubt Messrs Laurence Read and Benjamin Turner will be taking me off their Christmas card lists after that. Hey ho.

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?

I look at wider gold issues. I cover Versarien (VRS), ASOS (ASC), the so called economic recovery, and finally Verditek (VFTK) where I am vindicated by today’s fess up but it is not enough of a mea culpa, boardroom heads should be rolling. The stock is, pro tem, uninvestable.

I shall keep you posted but I am in the right place to secure barrels of ouzo with which to celebrate. Elsewhere I discuss Eqtec (ETQ) and why an eminent poster on our comments section is wrong to give it a clean bill of heath regarding its fraud. I debate valuing stocks in relation to NAV with respect to mining stocksand investment companies and why it is different. I look at Cineworld (CINE) and bid rumours, [email protected] Capital (SYME) and lunacy and at the atrocious results from Versarien (VRS) and its startling admission re its illegal taxpayer loan. I also discuss why i am not panicking on gold and the gold shares I own.

Zenith admits it doesn’t own its main asset, it clearly deceived investors and now it smears Tom Winnifrith

Anyone who checked out the track record of the once self-styled  “King of Socks” Count Andrea Cattaneo della Volta, would never have invested in Zenith Energy (ZEN). This is a man who trousered vast sums from Pex, a Leicester sock maker, before shutting up shop in the UK leaving workers owed huge unpaid wages.  Last week I published a letter appearing to show that Zenith had lost its main asset, the Tilapia field in the Republic of Congo. Today, a bombshell…..

I start with reflections on how Boris is begging companies to get the workers back to doing a shift at the office. Sory BoJo but in this mess of your own creation you are dreaming. 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).

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.

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.

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: 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 start with the rather stupid, uber-woke dismal Tory MP for Wrexham Sarah Atherton and her latest photo tweet. 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?

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Why is Bidstack trolling Darren Atwater?

Answers on a postcard please. Anyhow, it prompts me to discuss when Bidstack (BIDS) will run out of cash again so will have to do another bailout funding (again), and the history of its associates harassing me. I discuss historic death threats I have received. Elsewhere, I have more words on Lenigas PLC and frenzied activity in gold. I look at Midatech Pharma (MTPH), Petra Diamonds (PDL) and Symphony Environmental (SYM).

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: A challenge to David Lenigas

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).

He is thinking like a Bulletin Board Moron. I was paid to write on this sector for five years so know a bit and explain why he is not thinking straight.

I also look at 3 David Lenigas related situations: Empire Metals (EEE), Pires (PIRI) and UK Oil & Gas (UKOG). 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 who will Baillie Gifford which wanks for Britain on virtue signalling ethical investing (see HERE) react as it is a major Boohoo backer?

Sure,conscript all the snowflakes, after they have finished their degrees in media and gender studies and send them to invade Albania. It sort of worked in 1939. Seriously, this is more madness.
