Nanosynth – as the share price collapses the sheer scale of the 26 August mendacity is exposed

Needless to say, the Oxymorons at AIM Regulation have failed to force serial dog Nanosynth (NNN) to correct the grotesquely misleading RNS of 26 August in which it claimed that a Lanstead death spiral deal meant that it had secured “ a conditional subscription to raise £2,942,500  through the issue of 535,000,000 new ordinary shares of 0.01 pence each in the Company at a price of 0.55 pence per Ordinary Share.” That was a big fat fecking lie and with the shares collapsing to 0.42p, i.e less than they were before the deal was announced and a couple of subsequent ramptastic bullshit RNS’s. Mr Market is waking up and smelling the coffee even if the bogus Sheriff of AIM, Marcus Stuttard, and his colleagues are asleep at the wheel.

Tom Winnifrith Bonus Bearcast: Crack out Evil Banksta's ouzo, vindicated on Naked Wines disaster call in just weeks

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. After 2 announcements at no-one is watching O’Clock last night the shares have crashed by 40% today. I discuss where next as I ponder Evil Banksta’s generous gifts on Saturday.

Boom, boom: Why are Audioboom shares collapsing?

The shares are off another 15% today at 498p. That is less than a quarter of what they were, earlier this year when the fraudsters favourite journalist Ben Harrington was telling readers of the loathsome fake financial newspaper the Mail on Sunday that bidders were circling. So why are the shares trading lower. There are three reasons:

Ignore director spoof share purchases, fundamentals will out: ref Cake Box

Back in November of last year the CEO of Cake Box (CBOX) sold 3 million shares at 350p to mug fund managers. That means that over the past two years he has trousered £16.4 million at 170p and 350p. Lucky him. The company, which I have called out for months as a slam dunk car crash waiting to happen, has recently served up a horrific profit warning and its shares touched 90p. But then the CEO invested £250,000 at 121p and hey presto the shares are now 142p – more than halfway back to the pre-warning 180p level. This is absurd.

Cineworld worth 0p-1.5p, stay short – Evil Banksta

My problem, as ever, is being to much of a nice guy. So, generously, have long argued that Cineworld (CINE) shares might be worth 2p. And I stay with that view after yesterday’s Chapter 11 news.  Evil Banksta,, being a bankster, is by definition not a nice guy and so has been even more bearish. He stays short and bearish and argues that, in a best case scenario, the shares are going to 1.5p. And unlike Damian from Northern Ireland who should be in jail, he explains his reasoning in a balanced fashion, thus:

Cineworld – this man should be in jail

AFTER the company announced that it was going into Chapter 11, Damian From Northern Ireland posted the video below urging folks to buy shares in Cineworld (CINE). Damian you should be in jail.

The shares were 25% ahead shortly after the RNS arrived. but are still 13% up at 4.4p. Madness. Cineworld is explicit about what is going on, stating:

Then onto three companies where there may be financing issues very soon: Versarien (VRS), Deepverge (DVRG) and Wishbone Gold (WSBN). Finally Sharestock.

Westminster Group ramp: Arden Partners and MWM you are an effing disgrace

The morons are getting terribly excited by an article by my old mucker Mark Watson Mitchell (HERE) suggesting that shares in Westminster Group (WSG) chaired by disgraced ex Tory MP Tony Baldry of the fraud 3DM infamy, are cheap as chips. The article is titled “Giving Money away” But it is all demonstrable bollocks targeting the stupidest investors to try and pump the shares ahead of a bailout placing. That will be the 35th such bailout in Westminster’s tawdry history.

Cineworld – a shorters nightmare or a shorters wet dream?

Shares in Cineworld (CINE) are rocketing. They were down to 2p. Today they are more than 50% ahead at just under 7p, valuing this company at £90 million. On the BBs folks are talking 10p and 20p. They have not been this excited and screamed “burn shorters burn” since they piled inro Petropavlovsk (POG) just before it went bust. Or Thomas Cook, shares in which surged from 4p to 14p in the last fortnight before it went bust!

Cake Box Told y’all! Disastrous warning and it will get worse

Lucian Miers may have become a big fan of Cake Box’s (CBOX) egg-free mega calorie cream cakes but it seems that others are taking a different view. You have been repeatedly warned that this was a disaster in waiting and today there is a catastrophic profits warning and it is only going to get worse. How jolly glad the CEO and his Mrs who sold 3 million shares at 350 to poor dumb sheeple fund managers last November and 3.75 million 170p in September 2020 will be to have banked £16.88 million as the shares are now just 98p.

A hopping mad Matt Earl on Darktrace – you’d be mad to own the shares

Last week the Dark Destroyer agreed to do a conference call with a few fund managers to discuss Darktrace (DARK). Some sad feck recorded the call and passed the recording to the Sunday Times which ran a big story “exposing Matt’s undisclosed short”. If only financial journalists on the deadwood press understood that short disclosures are only visible over 0.5%. So, for Darktrace that would be c. £18 million, way too big for Earl’s Shadowfall oufit. Earl is hiding nothing.

EXCLUSIVE: Boohoo.com – The Dark Destroyer Matt Earl spells out the cash need and the way shareholders were fleeced

Over the weekend I explained HERE why Boohoo.com (BOO) could go bust. Given the shocking corporate governance history here arguably it SHOULD go bust. Boohoo is just a bad actor on the PLC stage. Matt Earl, the Dark Destroyer, was an early critic of Boohoo but even with the shares having crashed to 44p, giving a £560 million market cap, he warns of massive problems ahead and quantifies the extra cash need: £200 million.

Today it “responded to media speculation” and essentially ‘fessed that I was right. This will be messy.

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.

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.

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.

This is a new posterboy for the AIM 2021 IPO class of shame and advisers Zeus Capital should be asked some real questions.

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

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: V is for Vindication (Kefi, Verditek, Shield and the list today goes on and on)

In today’s podcast I look at Optibiotix (OPTI) where I bought more shares today, Kefi Gold & Copper (Kefi), Guild ESports (GILD) asking if it and David Beckham are breaking up, Nanosynth (NNN), the shysters at Verditek (VDTK) and Shield Therapeutics (STX). It is definately ouzo, or rather elderflower champagne, for supper tonight.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Cliff Weight of ShareSoc, the High Class Eastern European hooker, Mark Slater & our bet

I am not suggesting anything inappropriate just making an analogy as I discuss Zephyr Energy (ZPHR). I then discuss Optibiotix (OPTI) and a chat with Steve O’Hara. If you want to spend a day with Steve over all day drink and home produced Welsh food you can of course do so HERE where, I am happy to say, that almost a third of the seats are already booked out. Then it is onto Oxford Biodynamics (OBD) and Shield Therapeutics (STX) – will its placing be at 5p or not at all?.  Then onto Pennon (PNN), sewage and Feargal Sharkey. Finally Abingdon Diagnostics (ABDX) where good news today has seen the shares rocket but that only postpones the next bailout placing ( or death) until Advent.

Tom Winnifrith Bonus Bearcast: Once Again, Deepverge Grotesquely Misleads Investors

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

Bluebird at 2.5p worth 9.58p! Just a few caveats guv

Just a few caveats. Align Research is paid to pump out the research below. Align and its boss, Richard “nobody likes me and I don’t care” Jennings own shed loads of shares in Bluebird Merchant Ventures (BMV), and the “analyst” is disgraced, journalist smearing, part time PR man, the vile and repellent Dr Michael Green. Dr Green should not be allowed to work in financial services after his crimes as an enabler of the fraud Sefton Resources (SER). Having said all of that, I too have an interest in these shares and reckon they are cheap. Are they worth 9.58p as the ludicrous Green suggests? Er no. But could they double? Yes.

So, too, did Primary Bid, which was a keen supporter – as was our own Malcolm Stacey.

But do the founding O’Neill family, who flogged tens of millions worth of shares to dumb IIs, really care?

Two questions for loathsome Neill Ricketts of Versarien, as his product loses certification

Versarien (VRS) shares have surged of late: last week, they lounged at 15p; yesterday, they reached 24p. This surge is all the more remarkable given the company’s May 12 warningwithin a year, it could run out of money. My guess? The spike is driven by chatroom speculation and is, in effect, a concerted pre-placing ramp. In that vein, I have two questions for loathsome CEO, Neill Ricketts:

Octagonal – fined $1 million by SEC, more evidence of the mendacity and dishonesty of John Gunn and the utter incompetence of Nilesh Jagatia

I have not written on Octagonal (OCT) for some time, as, on 21 January 2021, it delisted from AIM, following the self-imposed suspension of shares on 24 December 2020.  In an RNS of the same day, Octagonal’s statement explained that the suspension was requested due to a complaint from the SEC:

Even Helen Keller and Ray Charles can see the writing on this wall – although, natch, some posters on the LSE Asylum still know better.

Value Creation Plan my Arse; Andrew Piggy Austin sticks his snout in the trough again at AIM sewer listed Kistos

The headline is “value creation plan”. My arse. This is a disgracefully structured plan to further enrich Kistos (KIST) boss Andrew Piggy Austin and his fellow boardroom troughers. Oink. Oink. This is a disgrace. How on earth has Nomad Panmure Gordon signed off on this scheme as being fair?

Andrew Piggy Austin “clarifies” £25m Greed per fat cat Plan at Kistos – my arse – plan needs changing

Yesterday I outlined how the proposed Value Creation Plan at AIM listed Kistos (KIST) was nothing of the sort, it was just a scam aimed at handing up to £25 million of free shares to senior management, notably Andrew “Piggy” Austin of IGAS (IGAS) & Equities First Holdings infamy. The shares slumped on the news allowing Piggy to buy another 150,000 of them at a year low price. Today the company “clarifies.” My arse. It dissembles. This scheme needs a radical redrawing.

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)

Things get even worse at PCF, another suspension looms and this is all the work of disgraced David Bull of the [email protected] fraud

Having just managed to get its shares unsuspended, PCF Group (PCF) has today warned folks that they are likely to be suspended again. To have your shares suspended once may be understandable. But twice looks like carelessness and the man responsible is now a key figure in the [email protected] Capital (SYME) and Eight Capital Partners (ECP) fraud. Any quarter decent firm would have suspended David Bull months ago. But Supply & Eight promoted him instead.

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!

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.

The bad news is that – unless there is a bailout placing – the company will still run out of cash well before Easter. In fact before half term. Now the morons reckon this deal will allow Verditek (VDTK) to book a profit. Well… er… sort of but not really. And even with this sale Verditek is still insolvent, or near as damn it.

Showing rather poor form, Dr Jaswir Singh made the purchase BEFORE rather than AFTER the company put out a weedy and patronising RNS trying to refute the bear case as explained HERE on Sunday.  Surely the good Dr was aware that a refutation was coming and thus had price sensitive information?

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

The Botswana bounce and the cash strapped – a short list for shorting

I write after a day in which shares rallied sharply after Friday’s big sell-off. That shakedown was on fears that the Botswana covid variant or rather the extreme over-reaction to it given the level of hospitalizations and deaths it has caused (0 & 0) could see corporate earnings hammered. I noted on Friday that the sell off was driven by a false fear. Surely even the lunatics in charge of the asylum we call Britain will soon have to accept that the Omicron (an anagram of moronic) variant is no great threat and thus the new lockdown measures will have to be reversed and thus the impact on PLC earnings will be trivial. One would hope so. That growing realisation that our leaders have blundered is what, one suspects, drove the rally.

BREAKING SCANDAL ON AIM: Has SP Angel been dumping shares while telling folks to buy yet again? It’s Union Jack Oil

A couple of years ago we exposed how SP Angel had been ramping the arse off Bluejay Mining (JAY) with ludicrous price targets while secretly dumping its entire holding at a fraction of the stated target. In other words it was selling its shares to the same folks who wanted to buy because of its ramping. SP Angel should have lost its license from the FCA then and the regulators should have been pressing charges against the individuals involved. The regulators did nowt and now we come to Union Jack Oil (UJO).

BREAKING: The man who ensured the FCA prosecuted Globo bosses reveals himself

No! It is not snot gobbler Dan McCrum of the FT who tipped off the CEO allowing him to sell millions of shares in the days before the balloon went up at the Globo (GBO) fraud. McCrum still insists that he is the journalist responsible for Globo’s downfall whatever Gabriel Grego says. But it is another unsung hero who brought Globo to book. You may have thought that he was a supportive shareholder in the fraud, dissing we bears as not knowing what we were talking about. However…

[email protected] Capital – what about the next £2m of death spiral funding due by Sunday?

Quelle surprise. Who would have guessed it?  The fraud [email protected] Capital(SYME), now almost out of cash and still burning cash, has elected to pay the remaining November amounts due under its Mercator death spiral – which at announced as being a loan   by issuing more shares rather than in cash. Calling this deal a “loan” was the least of the lies told by Supply But it was a lie.  With the shares at 0.1525p Mercator will have already forward sold see volumes in the past couple of days – the £300,000 of shares it received at 0.135p.  But there is a bigger elephant in the room.

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.

Between then and now it had boasted of utterly spurious crypto and NFT deals then, one suspects under FCA pressure, reverted to its prospectus gameplan of trying to do an RTO in oil.  But now another lie.

There are suggestions today that Chill Brands (CHLL) next bailout fundraise will be at 5p. I would suggest that this is the bull case. Rapidly running out of cash and with a business model that is a proven failure I cannot see why this business will be rescued until it is on the brink and the spivs at broker Peterhouse do a friends and family offer at 0.1p turning it into a cash shell. What is clear is that the shares will collapse as stale bulls dump and that anyone hanging on is insane. But what of the FCA?

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

10 red flags we all might have spotted at the Umuthi fraud

This weekend’s short letter on the N50 website will look at a company whose shares you can trade. Today, I am feeling pretty proud of my take-down of Standard Listed Umuthi (UHS) whose March 4 IPO was to have valued it at £368 million. A series of articles HERE has seen its sole NED resign and nobody now seems to doubt that this is a complete fraud with no business and that the revelations are truly shocking. Sadly, as it is an obvious zero, its shares are suspended but there are lessons. Here are 10 signs that this was a fraud:

[email protected] Capital – a master class in avoiding answering AGM questions

The fraud [email protected] Capital (SYME) held its AGM on 3 July and it took until 16 September to provide responses to the questions raised by the morons who own its shares.  Admittedly there were 182 questions but there was a large degree of overlap in the questions and Supply resorted to standard answers for many of the questions.  For instance, 22 questions related to trading (numbers Q27, Q40, Q44, Q69, Q73, Q77, Q87, Q118, Q121, Q122, Q123, Q124, Q135, Q140, Q141, Q146, Q156, Q166, Q168, Q169, Q174, Q178) were answered with a one sentence reply essentially stating refer to revenue guidance.  Similarly, 12 questions on Negma convertible loan note (Q67, Q82, Q83, Q95, Q96, Q97, Q112, Q120, Q125, Q126, Q161, Q172 were answered with the statement “The Company recently updated the market regarding the termination of the Negma arrangement.”

Another Winnileaks bombshell – Gert Viljoen sends a lie packed email to Umuthi shareholders

Thanks to the Winnileaks service I have been sent an email from Gert Viljoen, the CEO of the Umuthi (UHS) fraud, sent on 18 September 2019, almost 18 months before the FCA allowed this con to list. Read and weep at the lies Gert told to folks sold shares in Umuthi by either him or the Queen of the fraudsters Connie Van Nieuwkerk with most of the cash trousered by Gert or Connie and a bit going to Umuthi.

More Ramptastic tweeting from David Lenigas on Valereum (minus 63% in three months)

David Lenigas is to ramptastic tweeting what Colin Bird is to pre placing pumps. He just cannot help himself. Today’s special is a picture of two men in late middle age standing in a tax haven shaking hands. Apparently this is very significant for Aquis lobster pot listed Valereum (VLRM), the crypto play pumped to 80p three months ago as the shameless chartist turned penny share stock promoter Zak Mir called it up to £2,  That helped it get away a £1 million placing at 70p. Its shares now trade at 29p but even that is still a staggering 20 times net assets for this loss making business. Maybe three men could shake hands tomorrow in some tax dodging location and that would be even more significant, eh Dave?

Novacyt admits possibly loss making – a reminder of that porcine executive bonus plan

You may remember that directors of Novacyt (NCYT) made an abosolute killing because of a cash bonus plan which was dependent on the share price at October 17 2020. Assisted enormously by news of a massive contract win with the DHSC announced on September 29 the shares were c930p on D day. Today they are 325p as the horror of the DHSC feck up emerges. As a reminder here is what Novacyt said on 29 September sending its shares roofing it:

DeepVerge dire results expose what a poseur and a prick is its journalist trolling arse of a CEO Gerry Brandon

For pointing out what an overvalued crock is Deepverge (DVRG) and how the maths of cashburn did not stack up, its arse of a CEO took to trolling me on twitter, a medium he uses to ramp his shares in an alarming manner.  Today’s interims vindicate me and show why anyone believing Brandon deserves all they get. Notwithstanding the company’s Covid play based, literally, on piss and pooh, the valuation is a joke.

Argo Blockchain – the bitcoin price goes up so it borrows more money, this makes no sense at all

EXPLOSIVE: Umuthi - The Standard List fraud that exposes the slime at the heart of the City of London, part 2 the rest of the board knew

In part one of this series I established that the flotation of Umuthi Healthcare (UHS) on the Standard List which is regulated by the FCA was organized by a serial fraudster who also made out like a bandit selling shares before and after the IPO claiming they would roof it. But was she acting alone? Did the rest of the board, notably CEO Gert Viljoen and Chairman Advocate Shaun Gresse know about her past? The answer is shocking and can be found in an email from Viljoen which has found its way into my hands.

Good news travels fast bad news is delayed – its Salt Lake Potash again

Shares in Salt lake Potash (SO4) have been suspended on the ASX since 27 July although on AIM they have traded since 29 July allowing anyone with half a brain cell to get out. The cause of that suspension was an admission of technical issues which meant a delay in production which, in turn, meant that without new funding Salt Lake would crash land in tits up alley by Christmas. As the meeting with the Fat Lady draws ever closer we have news today. Or rather lack of news on that financing.

Cenkos: Optibiotix at 55p is worth 178.75p

Cenkos is house broker to Optibiotix (OPTI) so it is biased. I own a truck load of shares in Optibiotix so I am biased. But this 34 page note is detailed and may give you pause for thought. Steve O’Hara is doing an online presentation and Q&A tonight. I am not attending as I am washing my hair. Brokers notes and investor love-ins are all very well what I want to see now are material revenues and profits. And, while notes and presentations may tickle the share price, a material re-rate can only come from those sales and profits being delivered. I still believe that it will happen but I understand that others are bored of waiting. The full note is below.

Parsley Box interims – the taste of IPO vomit

After the July lack of profits warning, you might have thought that interims today from Parsley Box (MEAL) could not make things any worse. You would be wrong. Anyone buying into the IPO on March 31 when the company raised £5 million and existing shareholders dumped £12 million of shares, would look at the unfolding horror and feel physically sick. This is what happens in bull markets, shit floats, smart folks cash out and fund managers show they are as dumb as anyone else and buy into it all, albeit with other folks’ cash.

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.

On Tuesday I cited the utter fiction produced by Proactive Investors on the [email protected] Capital (SYME) fraud.

AIM Regulation should be slapping someone’s wrists. I also comment on Helium One (HE1) and Verditek (VDTK)

Video: Argo CEO/Chairman Peter Wall fails to deal with Boatman report - 3 out of 10 for artistic interpretation, nil for technical merit

He covers the “report” but does not name it just in case folks actually are encouraged to go read it. It is a poor rebuttal.

BREAKING: Truly Explosive Bear Dossier on Argo Blockchain from Boatman - anyone owning this stock is bonkers, short it if you can

This 17 page dossier from Boatman Capital of Babcock (BAB) fame is just out this very second and is dynamite. I have repeatedly warned folks that Argo Blockchain (ARB) failed the smell test on a number of counts and that its valuation was insane but even I did not dream that things could be this bad. What is not alleged, but proved, in this dossier is dynamite and the shares should be suspended at once with heads forced to roll over what we now know. Of coursemillenial  ESG freak fund managers are still drooling over the company appointing 3 women to the board the other day. To them that is far more important than a Texas land deal that stinks to high heaven and a legal dispute which suggests the company has not a shred of corporate integrity.  The FCA may well consider a share suspension, ahead of that the shares are a nil brainer slam dunk sell/short This is superb research. Enjoy!

BREAKING BOMBSHELL: [email protected] Capital - is CEO Alessandro Zamboni dumping his entire holding via an undeclared Equities First type deal

You may remember the Equities First Holdings (EFH) scandal which we did so much to expose? Fine chaps like the fraudster Rob Terry of Quindell (QPP) would take out a loan at a big discount to the value of shares pledged. They did not care as they knew the shares were way overvalued. The “lender,” EFH, would dump the stock at once so locking in a profit and when the shares fell a bit more the borrower would default. Easy! How to dump your entire holding in a worthless company while saying you were not. A document filed at Companies House, below, but natch not admitted to via RNS suggests the CEO of the fraud [email protected] Capital Alessandro Zamboni has (again) been reading the Rob Terry playbook.

By contrast in calling out Supply as a fraud and Remote as an overvalued POS, I was the villain of the tale. With shares in both companies heading south at a rate of knots I invite you to consider the cartoon below and offer up suitable captions in honour of my good pal the Sith Lord. Post away in the comments section below. Do your worst.

Remote Monitored Systems Trading Update (in name only)

That is because there really is no trading. But the update does contain an explicit warning that the cash is going up in smoke fast. This is a shocker. Some turds can be polished but PR man Graham Herring at IFC will not have bothered with this one. It is just a rough and ready turd au natural. And that makes the valuation a joke. BTW Graham: I wonder why the shares have fallen so sharply in the couple of days ahead of this awful update? It is a coincidence I am sure.

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?

Headlam Group – a recovery buy?

A trading update earlier this month from Headlam Group (HEAD) included “total revenue for the year-to-date is now in-line with the 2019 comparator, having been slightly below for the four months to 30 April 2021” and “the company’s Operational Improvement Programme delivering revenue growth opportunities and cost improvements”. This combination suggests there is further recovery value in the shares.

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.

Of course I’d never sack Malcolm Stacey but if I was going to do so it would be today

I would never fire Malcolm or indeed any writer here for what they write (within reason). This website believes in free speech so folks can say what they think even if it involves a brutal attack on a company in which I own shares. That is why, I think, our writers enjoy working here rather than on other sites where they would, I am sure, earn more. However… for a brief millisecond today, Malcolm pushed me hard…

UK Oil & Gas – almost as predicted, after the pump....

I warned that UK Oil & Gas (UKOG) was passing the hat around yet again to the bucket shop community at 0.17p. Almost right. Thanks to Bulletin board morons lapping up the horse, Lyin’ Steve Sanderson spouted on its Turkish prospects it has managed to raise £5 million at 0.18p. And there is also an open offer at the same price but with the spivs already flipping, the shares are 0.185p so I cannot see much more cash being raised. How long will this latest bailout last?

Align’s disgraced Dr Green halves his target price but reckons Bluebird shares could quadruple

The journalist-smearing, Sefton fraud-enabling PR man turned analyst and all-round tosser Dr Michael Green has updated the world with his take on Bluebird Merchant Ventures (BMV) after yesterday’s news.  While his initial coverage was patently ludicrous with a target of 34.79p which I rubbished HERE, the latest note is less bonkers with a target of 16.72p.

Many stocks in the recruitment sector have already responded, doubling and much more but here a current 294p to buy compares to a low of 220p and we see recovery potential back to 375p+. That makes the shares a recovery buy.

For a death spiral to work, your shares need to be trading. If they are suspended, you cannot run a spiral.

BREAKING: Lekoil CFO walks and accuses company of lying and breaking AIM Rule 10

First it was the CEO, then a NED and now the CFO has quit, drowning in debt, AIM dog Lekoil (LEK) of fake sheikh infamy. But the resignation letter of Edward During is dynamite. Lekoil itself has not put out a statement on this matter but Lekoil Nigeria, which it owns 40% of and seems to be at war with, has. Kerboom. How long can these shares remain unsuspended? Is the Nomad, hapless SP Angel of the fraud MySquar infamy, not considering whether to walk? It should be but, then again, it is morally bankrupt.

Letter to the FCA regarding the latest monster lie from [email protected] Capital

How do you know if the fraudsters at [email protected] Capital (SYME) are lying in an RNS or financial report? Simple. If there is a “y” in the day Supply is lying. It lied about its net assets in its RTO document, repeatedly lied about its sales pipeline, lied about its sales in 1 RNS and 2 interim reports and lied about so much else. And here is another lie exposed yesterday.  I have written to the FCA which has already suspended the shares once.

[email protected] Capital – announces £5.6 million death spiral – natch it misleads, shares tank, target 0p

Death spiral providers take no view on whether a company is good, bad, honest or dishonest as long as there is liquidity in the shares so it can dump who cares? Thus the cash guzzling fraud [email protected] Capital (SYME) says it has secured a £5.6 million death spiral. And it seems as if once the initial tranche of shares is dumped Supply/Negma can repeat up to nine more times. Talk about a rolling maul of selling pressure!

Alpha Growth (ALGW) is a company listed on the (Sub) Standard List of the LSE main market which specialises in the longevity asset space.  Its shares at time of writing are off 17% which values the company at £18 million.  For a company which reported turnover of just £90,264 and a loss of £223,971 in its last interim results, this is baking in a lot of hope value for its managed fund and its recent life insurance company acquisition.

BREAKING EXPOSE: Alien Metals – at least TWO massive apparently undeclared related party deals: immediate suspension needed

If a company undertakes a related party deal, its Nomad must approve, it must be declared as such in an RNS and the auditors must flag this up in the annual report and opine, in accordance with International Standards on Auditing 550 Related Parties, that the deal is kosher, that there is no “transfer of assets from or to management or others at amounts significantly above or below market value”. AIM dog Alien Metals (UFO) appears to have done at least two massive related party deals, implicating ALL of its three directors and with financier Richard Shemasian, brother of infamous promoter Mick, at the centre of the web and has declared neither. Its shares should be suspended at once until everything is out in the open and investigated.


The cast of characters involved are:

Daniel Smith – Non-Executive Chairman
Bill Brodie Good  – CEO
Mark Culbert – Non-Exec Director

As I have noted many times, following the “disappearance” of the eight contracts Verditek (VDTK) used to ramp the shares ahead of its last bailout placing, it is a company without revenue and now, once again, almost out of cash. And this it seems that equity investors have had enough and so the company has resorted to even dimmer and more credulous punters from the crowdfunding community. I have no idea what Tory Toff Lord Willetts is smoking other than a last cigar marked desperation but this makes no sense.

The Best time to kick a man is when he’s down

Being a bear over the past year has, as I have noted many times before, been painful. You expose a company for being a fraud and its shares go up. You reveal that it has lied to investors and…its shares go up. You demonstrate that it is trading poorly and is running out of cash, its shares dip but then, post an oversubscribed placing, start to roof it again. It is unnatural. But it is the way of life in the last blow off stages of a bull market.

Shares in the Standard Listed fraud that is Zoetic International (ZOE) are, at 56p mid, almost 50% off their all-time highs achieved at peak pump earlier this year. To have suffered such slippage amid a bull market for pot and small cap stocks takes some doing and is, in itself, something of a red flag. The posh but extremely dim and morally bankrupt PR man for this firm, Mr. Henry Harrison-Topham, tried to steady the nerves of the fools invested here with a trading update but it was no good. It was a case study in where what the company did NOT say serves as a red flag.

Thanks to the pressure applied by major dossiers and a string of exposed published by myself and by the Dark Destroyer, Matt Earl, a new management team at First Derivatives (FDP) has started to clean up its act. I got the FRC to force it to change its misleading accounts. And the old, very whiffy related party/Panama Pump deals of the ancient regime are gone. But yesterday’s results show that without the gloss of aggressive accounting and dodgy deals, what is left is a dull business but still one on a glamour rating. My original bear call – sell at £46 on 28 June 2018 – was spot on. The shares are now £22.25 to sell but still a slam dunk sell. Here is why…

Zoetic – as the shares tumble again is it worth considering the matter of revenue recognition. You bet!

Shares in the fraud Zoetic International (ZOE) are off again sharply today hitting a new year low of 56p. They are still about 55p overvalued and with 25% of the equity owned via CFDs there are going to be an awful lot of margin calls being issued as each new low is hit. That will create some forced selling so making this a sort of rolling maul which will see anyone dumb enough to keep holding racking up ever greater losses far more quickly than they might think. And thus at this juncture I ponder the issue of revenue recognition, now that Zoetic appears to have a bit of revenue. I say “appears” quite deliberately.

SHOCKING FRAUD at [email protected] Capital: explaining IFRS to morons at the FCA & elsewhere which means revenue is ZERO

This is so simple that even the woke dullards at the FCA should be able to understand it. If you delve into the geeky world of IFRS you will see why [email protected] Capital (SYME) cannot have booked any sales at all in calendar 2020. That makes its September 28 2020 RNS claimed booked revenues of £2.2 million and its interim results published on January 29 2021 claiming H1 sales of £386,000 also a lie. Directors have dumped millions of pounds worth of shares at prices inflated by those lies which makes this a fraud. So here, for chatroom and regulatory morons, is a detailed explanation of IFRS and what is going to happen next.

ADVFN – Clem Chambers running scared of a putsch & possibly the biggest joke in the history of awards

Yesterday I speculated at great length about the possibility that Israeli brain box Yair Tauman with a just sub 19% stake in ADVFN (AFN) might be able to call an EGM to oust the board led by Clem Chambers. It seems that King Clem agrees with my analysis and is running scared. Today he announced that he had exercised 411,473 options at 14p taking his stake up to 1.014 million shares or 3.88%.

Leverage can hurt bulls as well as bears – watch Zoetic collapsing

Given that it has lied on an industrial scale to investors, regulators and consumers and managed first half sales of just £54,000, I think it will not surprise anyone terribly that I view the fair value of shares in Zoetic International (ZOE) as 0p. But I published all the evidence of the malfeasance and parlous financials and the shares still headed to well over 100p valuing this company at more than £200 million. That was two months ago. Now they are 57p to sell and falling fast. If you can short you should do so as this should be a penny stock really very soon.

BREAKING: AAA shares suspended – where does that leave the Chris Akers possible market abuse and promised share purchase

Jubilee Metals - Coppertastic news but Colin is still giving the Bird

I will not advise others to buy shares in Jubilee Metals (JLP) while penny share huckster Colin Bird remains chairman and there are institutions who want to buy but will not do so until we are given a timeline for the exit of a man who sold all his shares, into a ramp, at 13p earlier this year. But, as a loyal shareholder, I am not selling at today’s 17.6p (although I paid sub 4p) after a Zambia copper update which was everything I could have asked for and more. These shares could be 40p+ by some stage in 2022 if Bird does the decent thing and walks. So why the excitement?

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: is John Story of Zoetic infamy facing a margin call and cash crisis?

Love Hemp – the read across is that Zoetic at 67p bid is worth 4.3p MAX!

Once upon a time there was only one CBD company listed in the UK, Zoetic (ZOE). It lied to investors, regulators and customers and was pumped by unscrupulous investors and PR veterans of the China fraud scams and its rarity value and the lamentable failure of the woke dullards at the FCA to address all that lying, saw the shares ramped to ludicrous levels. But now more CBD businesses are listing and that throws a spotlight on valuations. The clear read across implication is that Zoetic shares are going to crash.

Is Neill Ricketts causing cancer with Versarien’s face masks? Read a scientific paper suggesting the answer may be YES

Shares in Versarien (VRS) have been ramped, in as much as you can ramp a cash guzzling POS, on the back of its graphene enhanced face masks. But as I pointed out yesterday there is, despite Ricketts’ misleading RNS claims – no scientific study on humans to show that they either stop one human transmitting covid to another but, worse still, there is no proof they do not harm wearers. It gets worse: there is evidence from a scientific study that they may well harm wearers which is why Spain, Ireland and Canada have already moved to ban and recall such products.

Bahamas Petroleum – Millionaire Boss Simon Potter shunted upstairs as shareholders kicked in gonads yet again

On 17 September 2011 it was announced that Simon “Harry” Potter was to become CEO of Bahamas Petroleum (BPC) with the shares ending that day at c9.3p. Last year Potter trousered £375,000 as CEO so it is fair to say that his nine and a half year gig has cemented his position as a millionaire. But what of those dirty grubby peasants the shareholders? How have the hoi poloi prospered? Over the years I have repeatedly warned about the ramping of the shares, the extremely suspect financing arrangements and Harry – watch me make your ISA disappear, its magic – Potter’s ample rewards for failure.

In anything other than a raging and insane market this company would be valued at 0p

Egged on by disgraced share tipster Mike Walters some folks paid almost 20p a pop. Today the spread is 3.7p-3.9p but even that values this business at £12.8 million which is insane as fair value is clearly zero.

Vast Resources – wants shareholder approval for more value destruction: vote NO at GM, let's end the gravy train now!

In 2008, shares in Vast Resources (VAST) traded at 24.6p. Today they trade at 0.082p. In other words those running this company have, while trousering multi= millions of pounds in fees, managed to destroy 99.67% of shareholder value. While many companies do badly for shareholders the trick here is to keep the company going so more fees can be extracted as part of an ongoing shareholder screw. Now the board wants shareholder permission for more of the same. I urge shareholders to say NO!

That [email protected] Capital (SYME) is a fraud is beyond all doubt. Put simply, it has deceived gullible investors on an industrial scale allowing directors to sell vast numbers of shares at grossly inflated prices. They get to become multimillionaires as a result while mug punters will lose everything when Supply finally admits that it has run out of other people’s money. Which it already has but has yet to admit to. Yesterday, evidence emerged of THREE more monster deceptions via RNS which pumped the stock allowing insiders to sell. I have written to the FCA as you can see below.

[email protected] Capital – The liars admit to more delays on relisting but insists that its moronic shareholders have nothing to fear

Oh dear, oh dear. If anyone believes the latest RNS from the fraud that is [email protected] Capital (SYME), I have a bridge to sell them. It is now 18 days since the company asked the FCA to unsuspend its shares, a process that should have taken hours, but still the FCA will not relist and the half-witted owners of the equity are being asked to believe that there is nothing wrong? Whatever.

[email protected] Capital – the Fintech with minimal software development costs? Anyone smell a rat?

Shares in the fraud [email protected] Capital (SYME) have now remained suspended for 16 days as the FCA investigation into numerous irregularities continues. As we wait for the final denouement, a question for folks like the Sith Lord Zak Mir who are so keen to promote the stock: let’s turn to page 47 of the prospectus.

Red Rock Resources – another placing: I buy more

I am massively ahead on the Red Rock Resources (RRR) shares I bought at about the 0.625p offer price when we tipped the shares. Though initially frustrated by news that the company has raised another £1 million at 1.05p, I have considered the rationale and I have bought a few more shares today after recording an interview with Andrew Bell you can watch HERE. Here is why you should also buy the shares.

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

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

I discuss these companies as well as the Peterhouse play, Spinnaker Opportunies (SPO). If that opportunity knocks, I’ll pass. I look at Remote Monitored Systems (RMS) and discuss the two shares I bought and why: Red Rock Resources (RRR) and AEX Gold (AEXG).

BREAKING: The fraud Zoetic – how soon before the cash runs out and the company crashes in tits up alley? Weeks?

Having established, beyond any doubt, 9 days ago that the £143 million capitalised Zoetic International (ZOE) has lied to investors, regulators and its, very few, customers HERE, yesterday I showed how it was trying to cover up its crimes and, in doing so, was revealing that it had been using fake customer reviews, HERE.  Quote why anyone would hold the shares now defies belief so let’s now turn to how soon the company will go bankrupt. Because, to misquote Britain’s greatest ever Prime Minister, “the trouble with frauds is that eventually they run out of other people’s money”.  So how close to the precipice is Zoetic and can it be saved?

BP – Q4 results, still an Income buy!

Previously updating on BP (BP.), in October we concluded with the shares currently down to below 200p (they were above 500p early this year) and yielding around 8%, we continue to see long-term recovery and income value from here. Therefore, still a long-term Income buy. They’re currently still above 250p on the back of fourth quarter 2020 results but they are still cheap.

Red Rock Resources – share surge happens as I predicted but too late to avoid hat eating: I shall double up

I wake up to see that shares in Red Rock Resources (RRR) are 1.3p in the middle so the HotStockRockets team is now more than 100% ahead on this share tip. But it came too late for my personal indignity. I said the stock would be 100% up, at 1.26p by Christmas. It was not and so, as you can see here, I had to eat my hat on video. What next? I make another prediction and this time I am sure I will not have to eat my hat.

More vindication after 5 years: Bahamas Petroleum shares crash – Simon Potter is a rotter

For years AIM sewer listed Bahamas Petroleum (BPC) has spun the line that all it needed was a farm in partner to unlock massive potential for oil in the Bahamas. For years I have called out CEO Simon “Harry” Potter as a useless and grossly overpaid promoter who should be fired – here is a piece from 2015. And warned that this stock was just not investment grade - you can see a series of exposes and scoops HERE.  Sadly Potter was not fired in 2015 and today – with him having hauled out well over £5 million in compensation – since his 2011 appointment when the spoof started, the house of cards has collapsed.

The death of Iconic Labs Part 1 - is Katharine Lewis committing what used to be a criminal offence?

After yesterday’s debacle, Katharine Lewis, is now the sole remaining director of Iconic (ICON) which means it is breach of the 2006 Companies Act which requires all public companies to have at least two directors.  However, that is the least of her worries.  The main concern, and one which should be getting the appropriate professional and legal advice about is Iconic currently trading whilst insolvent and should she ask for the shares to be suspended whilst it clarifies its financial position?  Trading whilst insolvent was until recently, for a director, a Criminal Offence. It should be again.

Letter to the FCA regarding [email protected] Capital and why its shares should stay suspended until it truly 'fesses

It was a letter from myself, as an honest and upstanding member of the financial community, to the FCA, the regulators of the Standard List, that got shares in con [email protected] Capital (SYME) suspended. Now technically, having finally published audited numbers for 2019 and unaudited half calendar 2020 numbers, it should have the shares unsuspended. But what has emerged has been so nonsensical, both for 2019 HERE and for 2020 HERE that I have written to the FCA urging it to maintain the suspension for a while yet.  Now I reckon the floor shitters are so useless at regulating, if not defacating on their own carpets, that they may well unsuspend the stock.

He still owns 12.3 million shares and a shedload of massively in the money options. But for a company meant to be in a bid process this was not seen as a good signal given his rolde in the company. Understandably so. Anyhow, given how these folks have abused those of us who have questioned the shocking red flag behaviour at Eurasia over the past year, it is a delight to see them squirm!

Tom Winnifrith Letter to the FCA - suspend [email protected] Capital shares NOW

[email protected] Capital (SYME) shares are listed on the Standard List which means that no Nomad has to sign off on its ludicrous RNS statements. The regulator is the FCA which only acts in a reactive way, i.e. after a company has sinned. Actually, the FCA’s overpaid staff are too busy publishing papers on global warming, the gender pay gap or just shitting on the floor to do any regulation at all. The FCA is institutionally useless. However, in the hope that Supply’s sins are so egregious that it might just act, I have emailed Mark Steward – the Enforcement Director of the FCA – asking him to get his minions to have a butcher’s and actually do something.

It started in October 2018. Boatman Capital published its first bear dossier on Babcock International (BAB) with the shares at 672p. After yet another dire warning today, the stock trades at just 215p and still looks overvalued.

Bidstack – The share price tells you that Stifel has an urgently needed bailout placing underway

Bidstack (BIDS) managed to ramp its shares up to 13p the other day thanks to the follow on from a trading statement which was long on ramp but short on critical detail. That AIM Regulation allowed a company with a history of deceiving investors to issue such bollocks is another mark of infamy on its already soiled record. After the pump, you know what comes next and it looks to be underway.

Rumour and counter rumour and Skinbiotherapeutics

Shares in this company, where I am a loyal shareholder, raced ahead to 33p on Friday.  The excitement was driven largely by a false rumour and in part, methinks, on a rumour that is true. This morning I had it confirmed that the false rumour was, er, false.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Steve O'Hara of Optibiotix blames interviews with me for share price weakness

Yup, if he does an interview with me and my tough questions, shares in Optibiotix (OPTI) go down.  So, going forward, it is only those paid-for interviews with folks like Proactive. “Steve, is your schlonger enormous or gigantic? Why are your shares so cheap? etc etc.” Whatever, I apologise to you all for asking the odd question. Without my malign influence, Optibiotix would clearly be in the FTSE 100. I discuss this company’s prospects and also those of Skinbiotherapeutics (SBTX) where I am also a loyal shareholder. I look at Trainline (TRN), Online Blockchain (OBC) and Vast Resources (VAST).

How did the companies presenting at the ShareProphets shares conference in May do in terms of share price?

Thanks to reader Paul we have an answer. Normally companies presenting at such events, as they pay to do so, do not always deliver in terms of share price gains. In fact Ed Croft of Stockopedia claims they always do the reverse, they underperform.  That would be unlike big calls from Stockopedia, which tipped Wirecard as a storming buy 2 days before what was obviously Europe’s largest fraud went tits up and also said Quindell was one of the cheapest shares on AIM. Did I mention Globo, Ed had that as a big buy too before it became a zero. Anyhow back to our show in May…

SHOCKING EXPOSE: The twitter pumping of Trevor Brown in the days before and the day he dumped all his Remote Monitored shares

Braveheart (BIM), the investment vehicle run by Remote Monitored Systems (RMS) boss Trevor Brown who is also a major investor in Braveheart, sold ALL of its Remote shares on 16,17 and 18 November at 2.9p-5p, netting it c£15 million. Not only did Brown sign off on ramptastic RNS statements by Remote on 11 and 16 November pushing the line that the company would, by the end of November, have a machine in Nottingham producing Covid stopping masks but he was also active on twitter pumping the stock. Of course the machine did not arrive in November, something Remote fessed to on 26 November. With more delays since, trial failures and a bailout funding the shares have collapsed to 1.22p. Now back to the pump.

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.

The newly installed finance director of St James House (SJH), Mr Daniel Pym, (appointed on 30 September 2020) hasn’t exactly got off to the best of starts because his announcement of delays in completion of the audit citing COVID 19 and “complexities in relation to fair value adjustments of certain assets” means that the shares will be suspended on 2 November 2020.  Given these accounts are for the year ended 31 January 2020, the COVID 19 excuse isn’t credible as management has had 9 months to finalise the financial statements and major companies have published not only their 31 December 2019 accounts but also their interim accounts for the six months ended 30 June 2020.  I look at three of the lower quality assets on the balance sheet where if I was the auditor exercising my professional scepticism, I would be requiring management to take major write downs:

Disgraced, journalist smearing, fraud enabler Dr Michael Green serves up another bonkers share price target - this time its Xtract

After his role in anabling the fraud at Sefton Resources (SER), including in smearing the UK’s top investigative journalist, Dr Michael Green should NOT be working in financial services. You know my views. But he is. and his job these days seems to be penning bonkers research notes on small mining stocks setting insane share price targets which are multiples of the current share price. You may remember his classic piece on Bluebird Merchant (BMV) where the target – and I say this as an enthusiastic sharenholder – was just insane. Then there was a classic on the worthless James Parsons POS Ascent. His latest note is on Xtract (XTR) where he predicts profits of 500% for those buying the shares. If you enjoy a piece of badly wfritten fiction and don’t have a Jeffrey Archer to hand, the note is below.

Manolete – time for another bogus trading statement to try another Canute on a tanking share price?

Xtract Resources – Calamity Bird does it again: another forward sold placing with spiv bucket shop Novum plus dirty dealings by ex Beaufort boss and there was just no need!

Having advised readers to bank big gains on Xtract Resources  (XTR), I waited the requisite period and then dumped my own shares, disgusted by the way that Chairman Colin “Calamity” Bird seemed determined to dilute his mug punters in a shameless and un-needed fashion. Today, vindication.

[email protected] Capital: Insider dealing, aggressive accounting and a joke trading statement, what’s not to like?

On Friday we were told that [email protected] Capital (SYME) chairman Dominic White had dumped £1.5 million of shares with a spurious and plainly fictitious excuse. Today a risible trading statement and the shares are off again. Now are we really saying that the information announced today came as a shock to White?

BREAKING: Shareholders call GM to oust Colin Bird from Tiger Royalties

Seven years ago shares in Tiger Royalties and Investments (TIR) traded at 2p. Today they are 0.25p offer. As at June 30 2012 net assets were £4.4 million. Eight years later net assets were £360,000 and last week the company announced another £500,000 raise at just 0.21p. Enough is enough say shareholders owning just under 6% of the company who are now calling a GM to oust boss Colin Bird. Bird has yet to fess up to this via RNS, having received the letter two days ago, but happily Winnileaks has seen the requisition letter and thus I publish it below.

Verditek – now at the slow death or quick death point...

For the avoidance of doubt I am not short, I never am since it would allow folks who own shares in frauds, engage in frauds or promote or enable them to accuse me as having a vested interest and thus compromise my status as an investigative journalist. But if you are into shorting here’s why this company is now at the slow death or quick death point.

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.

It is not good enough, Zamboni has committed market abuse and should be in jail and it shows his company is a scam.

SHOCKER: Manolete - a panicked trading statement reveals the unjustifiably aggressive nature of its accounts

I noted on Monday how shares in Manolete (MANO) were tanking. So what to do? Natch, issue a panicked trading statement at 4.25 PM on Tuesday to reverse the rot. An unscheduled trading statement in the face of a sliding share price is always a bit of a red flag. And this statement was a total horror in the way that it boasted of the settlement of a major claim. It only serves to show how utterly aggressively this company presents its accounts and thus why you’d be bonkers to own the shares.

It was on July 10 that we published an explosive dossier on Manolete (MANO ) warning that its shares would fall by 66%. 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?

Even worse than the days when the system rated the Globo and Quindell frauds as massive buys. So maybe Stockopedia can redeem itself with a call on mystery Company A which has filed its accounts for calendar 2019.

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.

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.

On my first weekly video show, I spelled out to you all why bosses at Novacyt (NCYT) will do absolutely everything they can to ramp the shares ahead of October 17. Every extra  penny on the share price on that day is worth more than ten thousand pounds to the CEO alone. In that vein, we have more ramptastic “news” today. But perhaps you are excited about a “second wave” of Covid deaths in Spain.

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 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 Bonus Bearcast: Synairgen - a message for Peter "ramper" Brailey and other Bulletin Board Morons

Peter Brailey thinks he will be selling his last Synairgen (SNG) shares at £10 based on its “cure” for Covid 19. Peter admits he has no specialist knowledge. It shows. 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.

Manolete: attempted PR hit job on ShareProphets as company issues woeful attempted rebuttal of our dossier

Last week I published a detailed dossier on Manolete (MANO) explaining why the shares, then 515p, were worth 80p. Today the company has published an attempted rebuttal which starts with upper class twit PR scumbags Instinctif trying to smear ShareProphets. The shares are off another 15p at 395p.  The PR men may find smearing journalists almost as entertaining as mutual masturbation behind the bike sheds at Eton, but the markets are not convinced. I shall deal witrh that smear in bearcast later. First why the rebutall is so weak.

Eurasia Mining shares unsuspended & soar: pro tem ouzo for the morons, bears burned

That did not wash and the shares tumbled. And so today, as I urged it to do at the weekend, it has announced an independent enquiry but I am afraid the statement is nonsensical bullshit and the shares continue to slide.

Why is Eurasia still suspended: letter to morally bankrupt Nomad SP Angel & the Oxymorons at AIM Regulation

The continuing suspension of Eurasia Mining (EUA) makes no sense at all, at least not without another statement from the company on why it is still suspended. What is happening now is in clear breach of AIM rules. Thus an upstanding and concerned citizen who is, I believe, short of the shares though that is irrelevant has written to morally bankrupt Nomad SP Angel and the Oxymorons at AIM regulation, demanding that rules be adhered to. The letter is below:

Crony capitalism in action: Pity the poor British taxpayer bailing out Versarien as Chinese walk

The shares roofed it and he dumped vast amounts at 137p – today the shares are 42p. First it was BIGT, the CIGIU and finally YG, a newly established Hong Kong entity set up to source funds working with those other companies that had no websites or offices or phone numbers.

Related party deals, uber aggressive accounting, shocking corporate gvernance, executive greed, a rotating door of FDs, pointless acquisitions, failure to file subsidiary accounts. All is exposed.

Following the shocking revelation that Tomco (TOM) had lied to investors it has pulled the £1.5 million placing at 0.4p announced on Wednesday leaving it running on fumes. In fact, I’ll wager you a line or two of finest Colombian marching powder, direct from the City’s grubbiest dealing floors, that it is technically insolvent. Yet its shares, returning from suspension, have rocketed ahead to 0.775p, a gain of c75%. The FCA should be hot footing it to the offices of broker Turner Pope without delay. I smell crime.

Novacyt – new Coronabollocks news, this is all about executive greed and share ramping now

As I explained in some detail in my first new video show three weeks ago, Novacyt (NCYT) senior managers, notably CEO Graham Mullis, are massively incentivised to ramp the shares as hard as they can up to October 17. If they achieve peak ramp they will clean out the company’s cash reserves, leaving the PLC gasping for breath as they shout “Ching! Ching!

As I write they are off by 5p at 132-5p as it has announced am up to £45 million fund raise at 120p. I don’t blame it.

Letter to AIM Regulation: The Time to suspend Bidstack shares is NOW pending clarification

Despite incteasingly desperate attempts to ramp its share price, AIM dog Bidstack (BIDS)  sees its stock marooned at 6p. Interestingly, the spread is wide enough to drive a bus through, indicating market makers are aware that either one last ramp but also that a deeply discounted bailout placing may be imminent. But the bare fact is that the company cannot both meet May payroll and satisfy short term liabilities. As such, its shares should surely be suspended pending clarification of its financial position. I have written to the Oxymorons at AIM Regulation today making this request.

Tern Plc – at least 50% overvalued even if you believe its stated NAV ( which I don’t)

Nigel Somervile HERE and myself HERE both took apart yesterday’s ludicrous and dismal results announcement from AIM dog Tern (TERN).  Neither of us believe its NAV is real but even if you are credulous enough to swallow that canard the shares should surely be 50% lower. Here’s why.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Today I laugh with, not at, Zak Mir

I start with a few reflections on recordings I am doing and how lucky I am. there have been a lot of laughs so far today and to his credit the Sith Lord Zak Mir is quite funny. Anyhow, this is all for the Shareprophets Shares Conference where the 70 hours of video content really is, and I say so myself, of a very high quality. If you like bearcast, You really will enjoy what I am producing so book your tickets now HERE. In today’s podcast I discuss the latest misguided thoughts of the one global star of the investment world not speaking next Saturday, I refer, of course, to Roger Lawson of ShareSoc, on regulation in the wake of the latest NMC (NMC) news. I then look ata clear failing where the FCA needs to act fast, Akazoo and the role of Tosca Fund. I am on the warpath.

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

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

Is that justified? I discuss the forthcoming Shareprophets Shares show on May 9 with its quite amazing speaker line-up.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast - as I prepare a major presentation and celebrate the latest Bidstack triumph I ask what is a fraud?

I am doing a number of presentations at the Shareprophets Shares show but a major one will be on what makes a fraud. I will draw on a number of companies, some now in tita up alley others like Bidstack (BIDS) still listed. It will be a stonker and yet another reason to book your ticket now for the ShareProphets shares show on May 9 HERE. In today’s podcast I consider the Motley Crew that is Watchstone (WTG) – Quindell as was – Bidstack (BIDS), UK Oil & Gas (UKOG), Sacvncell (SCLP) and IQE (IQE)

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: TrakM8's numbers are so unclear they really could turn a man to drink

I start with my excitement about the video I have just recorded with Carson Block of Muddy Waters for the Shareprophets shares show. Lawyers alert!. It was brilliant stuff. I end by saying I recorded a PLC video for the show earlier.  I am incredibly tempted to buy the shares heavily. Anyhow both videos and 70 others will go live on May 9 so book your ticket HERE. In today’s podcast I look at Novacyt (NCYT), Avacta (AVCT) fake news in the Mail on Sunday, Urban Exposure (UEX) and in very real detail that old Thirsty Paul Scott fave TrakM8 (TRAK) where today’s numbers ring massive alarm bells.

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

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

Another letter to AIM Regulation re Bidstack - time to suspend the shares

The Oxymorons at AIM Regulation and hapless Nomad Mark Brady at SPARK have yet to reply to my letter of Saturday about Bidstack (BIDS), the almost bankrupt company led by Lyin’ James Draper which, I believe, (again) deceived investors last Friday. so I have penned a follow up missive. Surely the time has come to suspend the shares. The letter is below.

Hammerson a hero or a zero?

Covid-19 has changed the world. Well perhaps not the virus itself but the governmental response, which I continue to see as the biggest exercise in GroupThink madness the world has seen. But the change has come and a clear victim is Hammerson (HMSO), a heavily indebted owner of retail properties. Its last stated NAV was 601p, the shares trade at 84p. Either this is the cheapest stock going or something is so wrong that it could be horribly expensive.

I have no guests in this week’s show which is sponsored by Open Orphan PLC (ORPH). Instead it is just me discussing all things Coronavirus. My own views on the pandemic and on the Government’s disastrous, GroupThink driven, response are well documented in a series of podcasts and a couple of articles on my own website HERE. my views are not the issue it is the economic and stockmarket fallout. I discuss the bubble led by stocks like Novacyt (NCYT) and why it MUST burst but also stocks to buy and why I am nervous of the market rally.

More smoke and mirrors and plate-spinning from James Parsons..this time it is Ascent Resources

What are shares in Sound Energy (SOU) trading at today? 1p, 2p? I reckon this drowning in debt POS is worthless but only time will tell. It was not that long ago that shares in Sound traded at 90p. Not one institution bought as the stock headed to a £700 million market cap driven by obscene share ramping by the then CEO James Parsons, aided by some of the less scrupulous characters on the AIM scene.

Then I do the work on the RNS statements issued by Ascent Resources (AST) and Iconic (ICON) that their advisers should have done but failed to do. Needless to say there are massive questions that need ansewering. Finally a look at the valuation of Novacyt (NCYT). I have seen this sort of thing before and it is bonkers.

Imperial Brands – an Income buy

Shares in tobacco and ‘next generation’ products smoking-focused Imperial Brands (IMB) were above 2000p early this year and it updated investors the other day on a number of matters including “although the economic and social impact of COVID-19 is developing rapidly, there has been no material impact on group performance to date and current trading remains in-line with expectations”. The shares are though now available to buy at 1665p – they were  1570.5p when this article first appeared -  and we think you should although we regard a dividend cut as almost inevitable.

Cineword Covid 19 Update tells us nothing at all other than the directors are greedy bastards – in a mad world shares roof it

Shares in utterly bankrupt and worthless Intu (INTU) are up by 10% today. It is one of those days when folks just assume the best in everything. The worst recession since the 1930s, sod all earnings visibility, looming mass unemployment? Who cares? Just Fill Yer Boots! In that vein, shares in Cineworld (CINE) are up by 44% at 57p despite a dismal Covid update telling us nothing we need to know at all. Other than that the board are greedy bastards and you & I are subsidising that greed!

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

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

I discuss why the three day shares rally, now reversed today, cannot be justified in terms of the likely curve of corporate earnings recovery.

I chatted to Nigel Wray, Britain’s Buffett, at length today about the markets, individual shares, the coronavirus, the shape of the recession, consumer attitudes and most interestingly about commercial property, which he knows a bit about. I also discuss Sosandar (SOS), Finncrap (FCAP), Arden (ARDN), WH Ireland (WHI) and other Nomad/brokers and when the FCA will have to step in to check their solvency. Finally a few words on the Government’s daft £330 billion loan scheme.

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

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

As an investor, doing nothing is generally under-rated (but sometimes the facts have changed)...

The oil price tanking  for reasons I explained at the weekend HERE  and shares tumbling across the board on concerns as to what damage the Coronavirus is doing, and will do, to the real economy and thus to corporate earnings. Generally, my view is that doing nothing as an investor is something that is greatly under-rated. It is perhaps better to wait until the smoke clears. Having said that, sometimes we need to accept that facts have changed and that does fundamentally alter an investment thesis…

The company is clearly in breach of IFRS and I have reported the company to the FRC, so what is happening. The shares are now 76p.

BREAKING: The blatant market abuse at Dev Clever – the FCA does seem to be taking it seriously

I contacted the FCA last week about what appears to be blatant market abuse, or possibly even securities fraud, at Dev Clever (DEV) and to its credit it has sent back a non standard reply indicating that it is taking the matter very seriously. As a reminder, Dev did a placing on December 20 2019 and its CEO sold £500,000 shares a month later only to admit in February that sales for the six months to 31 October 2019 were way below forecast. How can a software firm have not had any inkling of that before the placing and CEO share dump. It defies belief. The FCA writes:

Versarien owning loons produce a chart of my obsession...

Nope, this is nothing to do with Cheryl Cole. Instead the chart below is intended to show how obsessed I am with the Versarien (VRS) car crash. The chart was published before today’s shock warning and aims to show that I am obsessed or desperate and thus to be ignored. I fear those who have ignored me are rather poorer as a result. But fear not morons, when you have lost all your money and Versarien has been booted off AIM, a then 100% vindicated Sheriff will cease coverage… meanwhile I bet Neill Rocketts is glad he sold so many shares even if he was not 100% honest about the reason!

If so will it issue a corrective RNS tomorrow and/or resign? Let me start with two tweets made by Ricketts after he dumped £153,750 of shares on 4 January 2018.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: time to lock Brokerman Dan up with Prince Charles & Greta in a small room

I start with the great global warming nutter who is here today. I then deal with another of that ilk, Malcolm Stacey, and his worries about owning oil shares. I coment on how central bankers might respond to Coronavirus but ask if it will work. I look at Angling Direct (ANG) and Sirius Minerals (SXX).

After nine days Eurasia must make a statement and put the rumours to bed

Nine days ago shares in Eurasia Mining (EUA), having rocketed to 7.3p were suspended following “social media” comments which we revealed to be a suggestion that after months of promising to sign an engagement letter with Chinese bank CITIC, that it had signed and was well on the way to making massive disposals. Since then amid a lack of news there has been nothing and he rumour mill is in overdrive. A statement on some of the rumours is needed now as some investors fear they may lose everything while others consider how many Porsches they will be buyng. So what are the rumours?

Versarien - William Battrick is the man to follow & the missing TR1

Who the hell is William Battrick you say? Easy, he was one of the founders of Versarien (VRS) and so knows the company better than most folks. Indeed William was a director up until 10 March 2016. In 2015 he helped ramp the shares, buying 54,000 at 17p to take his holding to 7.69 million shares, 7.3% of the then equity.

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

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

Bidstack: after yesterday’s insider dealing a dreadful trading statement today – bailout placing inevitable

This is a total omnishambles clusterfuck and it is hard to know where to start. So let’s just note the strange coincidence that yesterday shares in Bidstack (BIDS) were marked sharply lower and today the company has served up the most godawful of trading statements. But this is AIM, supervised by those stormtroopers of propriety, the Oxymorons at AIM Regulation with assistance from the chocolate teapots at the FCA so there cannot have been any insider dealing.  No really. Stop sniggering at the back please.

MAJOR EXPOSE: The Future House built on sand - Part 1 overstated organic revenue growth

Future PLC (FUTR)  floated on AIM in June 1999, in the midst of the dotcom bubble. It listed at 385 pence per share, raising around £173 million, and valuing the company at £578 million. Within a year, its shares had risen by more than 100%. Within 2 years, its shares had fallen by almost 95% as its investments into new magazines and web sites failed to pay-off. While revenue jumped, it began to rack up losses.

EXPOSE: Versarien – are graphene sales just a nano amount of group turnover? The hard and shocking data revealed

Uber ramp Versarien (VRS) refuses adamantly to break out how much of its business is actually involved in graphene. It is the graphene hype which explains why the shares are at 79.5p valuing the company at £122 million. The legacy non graphene activities may generate real sales but will never be material cash cows and thus are fundamentally almost worthless. So how much does Versarien actually make from graphene?

Good companies just do not behave like this – non financial red flags at Eurasia and Versarien

Lucian Miers and I have covered Versarien (VRS) many times, looking at the maths as to why the shares, at 79.5p having fallen back a good bit, are still monstrously overvalued. It was one of Lucian’s sell tips of the year HERE and he, and I, reckon that fair value is sub 10p.  Eurasia Mining (EUA) is another AIM casino ramp which, on fundamentals, looks to be massively overvalued. I would not be a buyer of the stock even if it fell by two thirds from the current 4p.

I discus this at length. I also look at Plutus Powergen (PG), Zinc Media (ZIN) and in great detail Optibiotix (OPTI) where the professional cynics have got it wrong and need to apologise.

Anyhow I have swapped emails with Jim Mellon on this as it concerns his company Agronomics (ANIC) which really interests me.

FREE Podcast: ShareProphets Radio Edition 22 with Tom Winnifrith on the subject of lying from the Daily Mail to five cited CEOs

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

I look at Anglo African Oil & Gas (AAOG) and at Zenith Energy (ZEN) whrre I am contacted by material shareholders who want regime change something that makes Anglo’s desire to own Zenith shares even more bonkers. Finally I suggest that unless Bidstack (BIDS) clarifies three matters urgently its shares will continue to collapse.

Bidstack finally fesses to dire trading up but this shows CEO James Draper to be a crook as well as a liar, shares worthless

I ramped up the pressure at the weekend and today Bidstack (BIDS) has finally issued a dire lack of sales warning. This admission shows that share selling CEO James Draper is a crook as well as a liar and the next bad news will be a bailout placing. For the morons who own these shares (40p+ just a few month ago and now sub 9p) the pain is far from over.


You will remember that Draper told his first massive lie to investors on August 8 when saying the company would hot half calendar year sales forecasts of £1.75 million knowing full well that it would not – sales for the six months to June 30 came in at just under £27,000.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: £2.5 billion M&G fund gated, you were warned

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

Optibiotix – not my preferred measure of disclosure

Do not get me wrong. I am a big fan of Steve O’Hara. I think he is doing a cracking job at Optibiotix (OPTI) where – as a loyal and very material (for me) shareholder – I expect to see the shares more than double from 62p within the next year. However, I’d be a hypocrite if I did not hold O’Hara to the same standards as obvious scallywags like Neill Ricketts of Versarien (VRS) when it came to the disclosure of material information.

As Bidstack shares continue to tank CEO Lyin’ James Draper takes to LinkedIn for an unofficial trading statement

Of course what Bidstack (BIDS) should be doing is issuing a trading statement via RNS. Does it still expect to have 24 games live by December 31 as forecast by Peterhouse. Or to have FY revenues of £5.75 million (having managed £26,000 in H1) or to achieve FY losses of just £500,000 (having lost £1.5 million in H1). The answer of course is No, No and No which is why the company should be issuing a formal profits warning and if Nomad Mark Brady at SPARK was not such an utter poltroon he’d be forcing the issue. Instead Lyin’ James Draper has issued a trading statement on LinkedIn. My guess is that his nose is just that bit longer as a result.

Ok, so Horse Hill is now shown to have been a great big 100 billion barrel piss take. David Lenigas does not mind. He is no longer involved with any of the Horse Hill stable of related party companies he helped to create. He’s probably sold his shares. He’s almost certainly made millions of pounds and so he needs a new game,a new crock of shite to ramp. Step forward AfriAg (AFRI) on the NEX lobster pot and the tweet below.

Sound Energy bailout $3m placing to keep lights on.. pro tem

Once upon a time, with its shares at 82p, Sound Energy (SOU) was valued at c£500 million. But no institutions were backing it, this was just a ruthless private investor ramp. It worked but you cannot keep plates spinning forever and drill failures in Italy and Morocco brought the shares crashing down. Today there was a final kick in the gonads for the mug punters suckered in by CEO James Parsons and others.

He’s ‘avin’ a giraffe – king fraudster Rob Terry wants to sue Watchstone (Quindell as was) for £14.7m

But now Terry is seeking to counterclaim for £14.7 million. His claim is utterly ridiculous but will waste more of Watchstone’s dwindling cash pile.

No-one, not even the PR cocksuckers at the Financial Times, believes that for a minute and the shares have slumped again today to 59p, despite, or perhaps in part because of, the weediest of statements from WPCT.

Sosandar slides again back towards IPO price – time to buy back in?

Mr Scott repeatedly argued, normally via 3AM thirsty tweet rants, that my tipping the shares was holding them back and so when I advised readers to bank 100% gains at 34p (and did so myself as well) he argued this was awful advice but thought it good for the share price which he saw at 65p+. The stock is off another 5% today at 22p to sell so should we be thinking of horrifying thirsty Paul and buying back in?

Oh dear. Oh dear. For those beguiled by the shoddy analysis of thirsty Paul Scott into buying shares in IQE (IQE), things are set to go from bad to worse. Much worse.  Last night Apple issued a first quarter sales warning.

Another day of shame for AIM: Cabot Energy spunks $16.5m in a year, warns could go bust in weeks, did ex CEO inside deal?

Cabot Energy (CAB) which, as Northern Petroleum, once saw its shares touch 140p today admitted that unless it gets away a placing at a “deep discount” (its words) it will go bust by the end of January. Its shares, about which we have been warning for eons, have crashed by 59% to 0.625p. To think that, less, than a year ago, former CEO Keith Bush raised $16.5 million at 5p. All the money's gone.

Wishbone Gold Placing, I could ffing scream - BUT!!!!

Tom Winnifrith wrote before Christmas: I am just livid, But you make bad trading decisions when livid so I am not selling my shares in Wishbone Gold (WSBN) but am doubling down on my torture by going to spend two days with my mother in law in the grim Northern welfare safari.

First Derivatives – now tell us about Kx and Shakti: does this make your $53.8m ( which you don't have) a pure spunk?

Given that its IPO prospectus was fraudulent and how its earnings have been materially overstated in recent years as demonstrated here, only the sort of moron who would back the fraud Globo to the hilt would still be owning shares in First Derivatives (FDP). They are an outstanding short at 2125p. But now lets look at Kx Systems Inc and something that might just blow up First early in the new year.

Frontera – Nomad quits, shares suspended, it is game over morons & ouzo time for me

I have spent all weekend being abused on twitter by morons who own shares in Frontera Resources (FRR) - notably @keithcareth, check his feed he is insane -  who insisted that I did not know what I was talking about, that the FCA was after me, etc etc etc. I await an apology as today – as was inevitable after our weekend revelations HERE and HERE – the Nomad, Cairn, has quit. The shares are suspended and here is why it is game over.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: the most shorted shares on AIM - the bear case is now even stronger

I start with a look at Frontera Resources (FRR) and what should and what may happen on Monday in light of this weekend's revelations. You would not want to be long of this one. Then I look at the most shorted shares on AIM and explain why for many of them, notably IQE (IQE), Telit (TCM), ASOS (ASC), Boohoo (BOO) and Victoria (VCP) the bear c ase has just got that much stronger, by an order of n, in the past few weeks. Finally a warning for shareholders in First Derivatives (FDP) - I have a small present for you tomorrow. :)

Frontera Resources Court Filing - hung in its own words: we publish damning court filing

 The court filing below hangs Frontera (FRR) in its own words. It makes it clear that it is in default on the Outrider loans so is likely to lose all its assets. It also lays bare its failure to secure external funding throughout the past nine months and its now utterly parlous financial state. The shares should be suspended first thing Monday. If not they will utterly collapse. If you have ignored my repeated warnings and can sell Monday do so at any price. And this document may trigger another FCA investigation.

For it shows that Outrider can veto any new loans - surely that is something Frontera should have revealed when claiming it had a $60 million term sheet (i.e it had asked for a loan). Surely that non disclosure misled investors? How long can Nomad Cairn continue to act for Frontera? A resignation and share suspension surely cannot be ruled out in light of this latest bombshell.

Winnileaks: Breaking - Frontera Resources under FCA investigation for misleading investors

The Winnileaks service has been provided with an email sent by an investor which confirms that investigations are underway into whether Frontera Resources (FRR) has mislead investors. Facing two big court cases, out of cash, drowning in debt and burning cash could this be the final straw?  It goes without saying that the shares are a sell. the email is below:

Lyin’ Steve Sanderson caption Contest Result – joint winners

Shares in UK Oil & Gas (UKOG) have actually rallied to 1.35p to sell in recent days. Natch they remain grotesquely overvalued as the clock starts to tick on the countdown to yet an other placing. But still there are those who reckon that on £650k per annum Lyin’ Steve Sanderson is good value as CEO. Whatever. On Tuesday I asked for suitable captions for the photo below and there were many decent entries as you can see HERE. But there can be only one winner…NO!

There are two winners of a semi-naked photo of Britain’s top share blogger (mornings only) Thirsty Paul Scott and they are:

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast - when does forced selling by fund managers become a flood?

I start with the issue of fund managers and redemptions and thus forced selling of shares. Not just Neil Woodford, a special case, but generally. I look at this in the context of what corporate newsflow I expect in January.  I also look at Urals Energy (UEN), Telit (TCM) and the FCA, Andalas (ADL) and UK Oil & Gas (UKOG) answering a point posed by our own in house Bulletin Board loon Wildes HERE.

As UK Oil & Gas shares plunge to 1.225p – it's time for another Lyin’ Steve Sanderson caption Contest

Of course the stock is still hugely overvalued. But as they have plunged from 2p in just a few weeks, for some reason, Big Dave Lenigas has stopped pumping out twenty tweets a day about how cheap the shares are.  Meanwhile the Bulletin Board Morons who lined up to abuse and smear myself and folks like Waseem Shakoor, who warned them, have been lining up to apologise. Not! And thus we have another pic of UK Oil & Gas (UKOG) boss Lyin’ Steve Sanderson in action destroying shareholder value for you to consider ….

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: a dark day in the fight against corporate fraud & the share price that tells you a B2C stockmarket bloodbath is on the way

I start with the bad news on the collapse of the fraud case against two Tesco (TSCO) executives. We have got the fight against fraud all wrong. But things will change as the anger generated by a bear market causes c
