You are hated in the City! Yup tell me something I don’t know

2163 days ago

And so someone I respect told me yesterday that I was hated in the City.  Not by everyone but in certain quarters. Tell me something I didn’t know. Apparently some folks feel that saying nasty things about companies, advisors, PR firms etc. is just despicable. “Other journalists don’t do it…why do you?” And it gets better.

Apparently this person was told by a well-respected City group not to be seen to work with me because I was being sued for libel by Sefton. To give them credit they did ask the City Group if they knew about the case and was told no. There was just the assumption that if listed company issues libel proceedings then the person it is suing must be a baddun.

Where do you start here? Without commenting on the specifics of this case I would point out that I have had legal proceedings threatened and commenced before. The companies who tried it on before have all disappeared or been censured (in the end) because they were liars or crooks or both.  Any trade body/City group which in a blinkered fashion believes that companies always tell the truth and so without doing any research automatically sides with the company in such matters is frankly a joke organisation. Perhaps these folks have never heard of Robert Maxwell or Asil Nadir or Bernie Madoff? Some companies are bent…just accept it.

And so why write articles which point out that certain shares are overvalued, that certain companies are – if one analyses their published statements – running out of cash or that certain companies have issued RNS statements that are verifiably false or over optimistic?  Let me think for about fifteen seconds:

  1. It is precisely because I can see so few – if any – other journalists writing such stuff today that I want to. In the “old days” folks like Clive Wolman would expose such nonsense on a weekly basis. But financial journalists are these days either young and inexperienced or so in bed with the PR firms such that they do not wish to ruffle feathers. The state of my industry is not a good one, it has been corrupted and emasculated at the same time. The fact that financial Fleet Street has lost the plot is no reason for me to do so too.
  2. There is a whole industry in the City working on IR/PR for shite small caps.  Offering one contrary view is surely a good thing. Balance?
  3. It is fun.
  4. It is intellectually honest. To pretend that all shares are buys & all companies good companies is intellectually dishonest.
  5. Because it means that in some parts of the City I am hated. That means I am doing a good job. Those City folk who ALWAYS side with companies on the assumption that ALL companies must be on the side of right are either blinkered and deluded or are  simply corrupt and in it for the money. Do I want to be liked by folks who are either complacent unthinking fools or part of the culture of greed themselves?  No. I despise such folk, I make no bones about it and to be told that they “hate me” is a vindication of my work. Not that I really give a flying fuck what they think.

My friend tells me that writing the way I do will not make me rich. And that these grubby CEOs, PRs etc. will try to take me down with law suits and by making my life hard. Tell me something I do not know.

I guess I had my time of being forced to make compromises, of kissing arse of not writing what I thought and it left me miserable and was unsustainable. Not entirely through choice I got another chance to go back to what makes me happy, to say what I want and to sleep soundly knowing I just did not have to make compromises which I would find hard to explain to St Peter. Oh yes, and living this way means that I never have to wear a suit either.

The first time I sunk a dodgy IPO was back in 1993. My first legal letter (from a company that does not exist anymore) was in 1994. The first time a company announced via an RNS that it was suing me personally was in 1997 (it went bust). The first time a company complained to the FSA about my writings and announced it was 1998 (Minmet!). That sort of list goes on and on.  I am delighted to see the Bison Ventures IPO bite the dust this week and reckon it is fair to add that one to the mantelpiece too.

There are days when I think about quitting writing about finance altogether. Life would be far simpler if I just organised an annual investor show and ran Real Man. To be told what I was told yesterday has spurred me on for another few months. It was a great pep talk.

Frankly to be told that you are hated by large numbers of people in the City is not exactly a dreadful condemnation. In case the City had not noticed, after numerous scandals folks in the City don't exactly have a great rep. out there. I would reagrd being hated by large numbers of City pigs and fools as being about as damning as being told that Jimmy Saville did not approve of your taste in girlfriends.

Victory on the Cesspit: Bison The Dust - is this Dead Kennedy Ventures?

Nominations Close at midnight today for the 2013 AIM Cesspit awards – Make your Nominations now!

2190 days ago

You have just one day left to make your nominations for the 2013 AIM Cesspit awards, an annual celebration of everything this is worst about London’s junior market. So hurry, hurry, hurry.  The point of these awards? Well there are a couple.

The first is that there are numerous awards where the “best” of AIM is celebrated. The market always wants to talk about its triumphs. The reality is that it tries not to discuss its failures and failings openly. It needs to. We all know that there are Nomads out there that will float any POS without, it appears, any regulatory sanction at all.

More importantly we all know that the vast majority of companies on AIM have delivered abject returns for investors. AIM constantly boasts about the amount of money it has raised for member companies. But so much of that money has gone to greedy directors who do not deliver, parasitic advisors or simply to money heaven as it is pissed away on duff projects. AIM needs to be reminded of that. If nothing else this is a chance for investors to vent some of their justifiable anger.

At an awards ceremony in late June, real trophies will be presented to those who have helped make AIM the Cesspit it is.

There are seven awards of which two are objective mathematical awards and the rest awards where the winners will be decided by the investing public. The Cesspit year runs from May 1st 2012 to May 1st 2013.

The awards are:


IPO of the year – an objective award for the IPO which moves most rapidly from IPO to suspended pending clarification.



The Darwin award – an objective award for the company that destroyed most market capitalisation in the 12 months prior to its shares being suspended pending clarification.

Entrepreneur of the year – investors vote on which AIM CEO has destroyed value most spectacularly in the past year.

PLC Pig of the year – investors can vote on which AIM CEO or Chairman was most grotesquely over-remunerated relative to performance. Hmmm…I wonder which Chairman whose first name begins with J I shall be nominating.

Cesspit lie of the year – investors vote on which RNS issued during the year by an AIM listed company was most misleading. Naturally the AIM regulation team appears to think that none have been misleading as there have been no public censures. But I am sure that you have sharper eyes than the regulators.

Cesspit deal of the year – investors vote on which merger or acquisition of the past year did the most to destroy value.

Cesspit entrepreneur of the year, the most coveted award, handed out to the man or woman whose over promotion of a stock, under-delivery and ability to destroy value has done most to contribute to making the Cesspit regarded as it is today.

To make your nominations for the five investor decided categories go HERE

We will close nominations at midnight tonight (Friday) and commence voting the following week ahead of an awards dinner on Monday 24th June to which all winners will be invited to attend or send a representative.



Tom Winnifrith is a journalist who enjoys writing about the Cesspit at the bottom of AIM. You can find more of his work at www.Shareprophets.com

Facebook makes someone happy as the fake user scandal grows

2485 days ago

Yesterday I wrote about how 80% of the customers one firm had paid (on a per click model) Facebook to send over were in fact bots (computer programmes). While there is sod all chance of most of Facebook’s customers (students, teenagers and piss poor Indians) buying anything online, there is zero chance of a bot buying. One thinks that advertisers will be thinking twice about using the services of Mark Zuckerburg’s great enterprise.

But it gets better. The company now admits that 1 on 10 of its accounts are in fact fake. That is to say duplicates ( where someone is so moronic that they need to “friend” themselves as they cannot find enough other morons online to be friends with?), not real (pets, etc) or spammers. You cannot now make any sensible earnings forecasts, the valuation is still crazy and insiders are about to start dumping hundreds of millions of shares onto a market where only the certifiable will buy. IPO $38. Price now $21. Target by Christmas (probably a lot sooner sub $10). As a non shareholder this is getting quite entertaining.
As one correspondent puts it:

“I’m loving this as my colleague took his first foray into investing on the IPO, buying a massive 3 shares. The only thing more amusing would be if he returned home to find Zuckerberg in bed with his wife.”

Why not? Zuckerburg has already screwed the investors, why not screw their wives as well?
