TomCo - damning assessment after latest discounted placing from City's No 1 oil analyst

I warned you that Tomco (TOM) was pumping ahead of a placing. Some poor saps ignored that advice and paid up to 4.5p per share earlier this week. I hope they lubed up well as this morning £600,000 was raised at just 2.75p. Ouch! But this money will be pissed away just like all the other monies this POS company has raised. The City's No 1 oil analyst, Zac "the Knife" Phillips of SP Angel is damning in his morning email to clients. The great man opines:

Tomco: the ramp continues but with placing ahoy, the City's No 1 oil analyst far from convinced

Well before the end of June, Tomco (TOM) needs to get away another placing to avoid crash landing in its up alley. To that end, the £3.9 million market cap at 4.3p is a complete rum 'n; coke. Bt the ramp is underway ahead of the next bailout and thus we have a statement today which has failed to impress the City's No 1 oil analyst. Zac "the knife" Phillips of SP Angel writes:

City’s No 1 oil analyst sticks knife into Mayan after latest bailout placing? Where is the cash going?

Mayan Energy (MYN) has today raised £750,000 at 0.12p in its latest bailout placing but it comes with an admission that it has forgotten to file returns to the US taxman, the IRS, for an unspecified period and thus who knows how much of that cash will be swallowed up in unpaid tax bills. As such we have no idea how fast the clock is ticking on the next bailout placing. The City’s top oil analyst, Zac Phillips of SP Angel is scathing. He writes:

Mayan Energy - appointing a new NED is not enough it's a chocolate teapot - sackings needed: top analyst

Four days ago the CEO walked with immediate effect and without explanation.

Magnolia Shocker - to delist from the AIM casino - why is the board not being sacked?

I have repeatedly warned against investing in Gavin Burnell of Globo infamy creation Magnolia Petroleum (MAGP). Drowning in debt, burning cash and paying vast sums to CEO Rita Whittingham and her ghastly relatives on the payroll this is a dog. Today the company says that it is going to try and sell some of its (crap) assets and to save £100,000 it will delist from AIM. It could save far more by firing its deadwood staff. The shares have plunged 65% and are now just 0.6p to sell. But you should sell. SP Angel guru, the City's No 1 oil analyst Zac "The Knife" Phillips sums up this farce perfectly.

Why the SNP maths on Oil is all wrong – a former oil analyst (Andrew Bell) explains

Andrew Bell of Red Rock Resources (RRR) and Regency Mines (RGM) like me started his life as an oil analyst.  Bell is a Scot living in England and, I sense, supports the Union.

But Bell adds to the debate in a very well argued video showing how SNP assumptions about Scottish oil revenues are quite simply sheer fantasy.
