Some traders might be looking to rest up for the new year, if you are not one of them here are a few penny stocks to keep your eyes on:

SGGC has had one red day since its run started weeks ago. Certainly worth a look.
COPI might be turning profitable? Do your own DD with this one but the potential for a run has already been proven, its just a matter of sustaining a run now.
GSNHmight dip a little and could be a good entry for those looking for a reverse merger play in its infancy.

Happy New Year to All and Green trading!

Choose a Broker
Prior to making a decision to purchase OTC securities we strongly advise you to read our Risk Warning. and Investor Protection Information
Why doesn’t your online broker have real-time Pink Sheets quotes? Probably because their customers have not complained enough. Tell your online broker you want to see real-time Pink Sheets quotes on their web site now.
You must open an account with a brokerage firm (the entity that executes your buy and sell order) to buy Pink Sheets stocks. Investors cannot buy or sell securities directly through the Pink Sheets. While your brokerage firm account will allow you to trade Pink Sheets stocks, as well as those listed on NASDAQ, the New York Stock Exchange, and other venues, investors should clearly understand that trading practices for OTC securities are different from those of securities traded on exchanges. Your broker or the market maker they route your order to, may not provide you with limit order display or instantaneous executions in Pink Sheets stocks.
Unlike those listed on NASDAQ and New York Stock Exchange, Pink Sheets stocks are not required to meet listing standards. This means there is a wide range in the quality of issuers that are traded in the Pink Sheets, from major international conglomerates to very small companies struggling to survive. Investors must be aware that good information is simply is not available for many Pink Sheet traded companies and that there are unscrupulous individuals that will attempt to defraud investors through manipulative schemes in Pink Sheets stocks. While Pink Sheets cooperates fully with securities regulators and those regulators are continually working to combat fraud, it is not possible to eradicate fraud from the markets. Accordingly, you must be very careful in making a decision to invest in a Pink Sheets stock or any OTC Security.
Prior to making a decision to purchase OTC securities we strongly advise you to read our Risk Warning. and Investor Protection Information
There are three types of brokers: a full service broker, a discount broker, and an on-line broker. Full-service brokers offer advice with reports from their firm’s research department as well as execute transactions for you. Discount brokers charge less per transaction but offer less investment advice. Online brokers are the least expensive way to trade your stocks; you use the internet for transactions and your own research.
Before you choose a broker, ensure that the firm will accept orders in Pink Sheets stocks. Not all brokers do!
Limit Order vs. Market Order to Know the Difference Between a Limit Order vs. Market Order
When placing an order with your broker, you will come across such terms as Market Order and Limit order. It is important that you understand each type of transaction.
To avoid buying or selling a stock at a price higher or lower than you intend, place a “limit order” rather than a “market order.” A limit order is an order to buy or sell a security at a specific price. When you place a market order, you can’t control the price at which your order will be filled.
Because the market price for your stock may go up or down considerably before your trade goes through, with a market order you may end up paying more for the stock than you intend, or selling at a price lower than you wish.
For more detailed information please read SEC publication Trade Execution: What Every Investor Should Know.
Always Research Your Proposed InvestmentYou should not make a decision about investing your money in a particular company solely on the basis of a “hot tip” or someone’s advice. It is important that you make an informed decision based on your thorough research of the company’s annual report and current financial statements.

2009 September 10

eworld Companies, now stock ticker EWRC (after a 12,000-1 reverse split), had investors buying shares today at a rate that slightly exceeded selling of stock. Considering the $126 million offer you would have expected more price appreciation, but with a stock that has sucked so many investors dry it was no surprise to see the upside action suppressed.

The stock opened near prime reverse split levels before a press release hit the wires that is in the running for the most ludicrous Pink Sheet press release of all time.

Before we get started take a look at this chart. Over the last 4 years, if you included all the dilution and reverse splits, a $10 million+ investment would now be worth less than a dollar! You have that right. $10+ million dollars turned into less than a $1 over 4 years. Those are Bernie Madoff type numbers. Shouldn’t their CEO be running the NASDAQ by now?

EWRC today received “A Major Offer” per their press release. That “Major Offer” was to purchase all 6.63 BILLION shares outstanding for $.019 a share. This is all right from the press release that we have posted below. The stock opened at $.0013, yet someone was willing to buy these same $.0013 shares for $.019? And not just a few million shares, they were willing to buy all 6.63 billion of them for a total cost of $126 Million dollars? Does this make any sense at all? Why buy 6.63 billion shares when you can just wait a month for the next 12,000 for 1 reverse split and only have to purchase several million shares? Heck why not buy them on the open market. Check the chart out. There have been shares to buy for years. No reason to scoop them up all at once for 1000 times what they are worth.

The pennystockgurus are stumped at this “major offer”. Even more confounding is why the company has not already accepted the offer. If a CEO of any publicly traded company had to consult with lawyers before accepting an offer that values their “company” at 1000% more than it currently is worth , then they should have his/her head examined and be promptly terminated. Anyone holding shares here should wonder why they aren’t already worth $.019. Maybe they can seek the person(s) behind the “major offer” and sell their shares privately seeing how the market was willing to pay only $.0019 for them at the close today not the $.019 per the press release. You think the company was filling that 700 million share gap today. Couldn’t the perosn behind the “major offer” buy a few billion shares at a 90% discount today to lessen the $126 million purchase price? Then again if your willing to spend $126 million on a $.0019 stock you probably aren’t working with a full deck.

“eWorld CEO Henning Morales has forwarded the offer to the company’s attorneys for review and due diligence.” Due diligence? Review? Someone is willing to pay $126 million for a company whose sole business has been selling shares and performing reverse splits. Take the money and run…. oh wait isn’t that exactly whats going on here?

Who is the one lacking intelligence more? The CEO who wont accept a 1000% premium for a stock that has done nothing but print shares the last 5 years, or the person willing to fork over $126 million for a Pink Sheet stock that has sucked investors dry every day of its existence? Let’s forward that question to our lawyers for further review.

VYGO | Free Penny Stock Alert

Voyager Petroleum is capitalizing on the GREEN FRIENDLY revolution. If you’ve been looking for a hot penny stock that capitalizes on the flow of dollars that is finding its way toward GREEN FRIENDLY TECHNOLOGY and GREEN-FRIENDLY COMPANIES than VYGO could be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to own a considerable amount of a company at ground level prices.

VYGO (Voyager Petroleum) secures oil-based waste products for a nominal amount. They then recycle and recondition the waste and turn it back into actual useful products such as windshield wiper fluid! The concept is out of this world and we think the market will quickly catch on to the legitimacy of their business plan.

Recent press indicates that great things are on the horizon for Voyager Petroleum (VYGO). They have been acquiring a marvelous team of people to guarantee success and our eyes our focused to the wires in expectancy of MORE GREAT NEWS.

VYGO had a share structure of about 350M o/s and 200M in the float. At the current trading range we think VYGO could prove to be VERY UNDERVALUED. We at INVESTOR CLUESO have been doing some intensive due diligence on VYGO and are beginning to focus our investing energies on alerting some of our larger investors to this one of a kind situation!

Some Quick Due Diligence

Voyager Petroleum (VYGO) is a publicly traded mid market level petroleum-based brokerage that processes and distributes. VYGO is directly involved in securing a plethora of supply streams for processing and distributing lubricants to the $11 billion U.S. market.

VYGO provides privately labeled and wholesale GREEN (eco) -FRIENDLY petroleum-based products to end-users including small to mid-sized fuel blenders, refineries as well as the automotive and manufacturing markets. VYGO’s goal is to deliver superior quality products at an inexpensive price to its customers.

Some Quick GREEN (eco) FRIENDLY Facts To Consider!

• Recycling oil is good for the environment and the economy
• Re-refining oil uses one-third the energy of refining crude oil.
• 1 gallon of used oil makes 2.5 quarts of re-refined oil, however, it takes 42 gallons of crude oil to make 2.5 quarts of virgin oil.
• Used motor oil accounts for more than 40% of the total oil pollution of US harbors and waterways.
• Corporate environmental responsibility is highly important to market penetration, customer retention and cost reduction.
• Monarch Petroleum provides recycled lubricants at a cost-savings due to the efficiency and reliability of our processing facility.
• Since lubricants do not lose their general characteristics, Monarch provides a value proposition in the market place by providing quality and convenience with our recycling services.
• Monarch offers the extension of lubricants life cycle with its environmentally friendly processing.

VYGO Recent & Future Projects

Recent Projects:

We’ve been working closely with owner/operators of several processing facilities with access to millions of gallons of storage capacity to service pre-existing regional customers.

Our joint ventures are allowing for processing and packaging equipment for use of proprietary, eco-friendly processes.

New petroleum-based sales contracts have been entered into with automotive and industrial customers.

Projects On The Horizon

We plan to grow reclaimed oil and finished product sales through the wholly-owned subsidiary and commodity-based brokerage business, Monarch Petroleum.

We plan to attain a “lifting number” on behalf of Monarch Petroleum to allow us to act as a catalyst between companies needing petroleum-based products and other companies dispersing them, whether via transport, rail, pipeline, or ship.

Acquiring a lifting number will allow the company to lift diesel fuel direct from the pipeline racks. This will enable us to use rail cars and haul the fuel to our existing customer base or anywhere in between.

Having a lifting number in place will also provide the company with future options such as purchasing from this “major” in the future — namely making gasoline purchases, etc.

The lifting number we seek will allow us to direct shipments to customers, and one of the racks is located very close to our delivery point of the used lube in New Orleans.

This is very difficult to get this opportunity from any of the majors, and we plan to provide the best scenario for all of the parties involved moving this project forward.

We are looking to even out existing joint ventures into partial ownership of various facilities.

The Pennystock Article- HPQ Hewlett-packard

 


Hewlett-Packard (HPQ: Charts, News, Offers) has been looming large in the headlines this week, following CEO Mark Hurd’s abrupt resignation last Friday after a sexual harassment probe into his relationship with an employee revealed falsified expense accounts concealing an extramarital affair. Hurd had been instrumental in the restructuring and rebirth of HP, cutting costs and increasing margins drastically, doubling the share price in the past five years. In his absence, CFO Catyhie Lesjak has taken the reins as interim CEO until a suitable replacement can be found. Investors remain divided on the future of HP without Mark Hurd. Some have likened the removal of Hurd to Apple’s nearly fatal decision to oust Steve Jobs back in 1985, while others believe that HP is still on track to fulfill its full year revenue forecast. Indeed, upon the announcement of Hurd’s departure, HP unexpectedly revised its full-year EPS outlook from 4.45-4.50 to 4.49-4.51, in a thinly veiled attempt to pacify shareholders. As if the Hurd scandal wasn’t enough, new allegations of bribery in Russia totaling 10.9 million to secure a contract have further sullied the company’s reputation. Is there any hope for this once bright tech beacon amid a PR nightmare?

Stock Analysis
For many years prior to Hurd’s ascension, HP was tangled in a web of low margins and over-diversification. Since 2005, Hurd increased margins from 4% to nearly 9% at one point. He followed IBM’s (IBM: Charts, News, Offers) example and shifted much of its focus towards higher margin software and IT services, which now make up 31% of HP’s revenue model. 68% of HP’s gross revenue still comes from hardware – 54% from personal computers and imaging/printing devices, and 14% from enterprise storage and servers. Its recent 13.9 billion, 3-year acquisition of EDS (Electronic Data Systems) is expected to boost its storage/servers division significantly, making it the second largest corporate storage provider after IBM. Also worth noting is the recent $1 billion acquisition of struggling smartphone maker Palm for a 23% premium, despite the company failing to turn a profit since 2008. This shows HP’s desperation to enter the lucrative smartphone market, even if it means starting late and handicapped. Of these aforementioned divisions, the imaging division, which includes printers, scanners and print cartridges, is the most profitable. The imaging hardware is sold at either a loss or a very thin margin, while the replacement cartridges are sold at 50% margin, and provide HP with its cash cow, earning over 50% of the company’s net profits.


HP’s decision to enter the smartphone arena with an already fragmented business model may prove to be distracting, unnecessary and costly. Critics have already pointed out that the Palm brand is practically worthless and quickly becoming a footnote in the fast moving mobile world. Others have predicted that HP would strip the Palm name and mine its technology in order to release a new HP branded smartphone quickly. HP had previously used Windows Mobile in its previously unsuccessful iPaq handsets, and now also owns Palm’s WebOS. Neither would be a viable choice to enter a market dominated by Apple’s (AAPL: Charts, News, Offers) iPhone, Research in Motion’s (RIMM: Charts, News, Offers) Blackberry, and a slew of Google (GOOG: Charts, News, Offers) Android powered devices which include HTC, Samsung, Motorola and Sony Ericcson. It would take a gentle hand to guide HP into the smartphone game without incurring massive initial losses and decrease the margins that Hurd had so shrewdly increased.


Due to the fact that HP’s focus is so broad, there are multiple competitors on several fronts, which would take skillful maneuvering, on the level of Mark Hurd, to counter. On the personal and corporate computer front, Dell (DELL: Charts, News, Offers) is its closest competitor, though it has lower net profit margins (2%) than HP (7%). On the IT services and software front, IBM is the biggest threat, with significantly higher net margins (14%) than HP. However, HP’s profit engine is its imaging division, where it faces a whole different group of rivals – Lexmark, Canon, Samsung, Xerox and Epson. Against these companies, HP holds a commanding 45% of the market. There is, however, a new threat of office mega-stores such as Office Depot (ODP: Charts, News, Offers) and Staples (SPLS: Charts, News, Offers) selling their own generic brand print cartridges that are compatible with HP devices. This is a serious threat to HP as much of its bottom line depends on the sale of print cartridges.


As HP’s share price sinks, there are many purely technical factors that make it an attractive long-term investment. The trailing P/E is only 11.4 and the forward P/E is 8.06. The PEG ratio has fallen to .98, and it rests right above the 52-week low of 39.95. There is also a small 0.08 quarterly dividend to boot. Hewlett Packard is a strong brand with a healthy heart generating plenty of cash, and it won’t go under anytime soon.


The new CEO will have to be as focused as Hurd was on maximizing HP’s comparatively small margins, cutting costs further, and streamlining HP’s fragmented business model and insuring the absorption of EDS and Palm go smoothly. Many analysts believe the stock could go either way at this moment, and with pessimistic uncertainty thick in the air regarding Hurd’s replacement and the outcome of the current DOJ bribery probe, it may be prudent to step back and set HPQ on a watchlist for now and see what happens.

Learn how to buy penny stocks without losing your shirt in the process.


Since writing about trading penny stocks online over at my blog, I received many emails about the topic and it appears to have generated a fair deal of interest. Folk have been trading stocks online since the first days of the web, and today it is a straightforward matter for anyone that decides they need to become involved to start online trading.


Check the bottom of this article if you would like to see an automated penny stock trading robot making a killing on live video.


However, there are many things you should be conscious of before choosing to start to buy penny stocks, not least being that it’s a bet, and this applies with no regard for your understanding or experience.


You want to have some money to invest and it should be cash that you can affors to lose.


Keep in mind the worst case eventuality – i.e. Fair alert if you do not wish to read any more. If the idea of an exciting dangerous investment system appeals to you, trading penny stocks might be the adrenalin fix you are looking for. It’s pretty easy to start, but success or failure are similarly possible results. Firstly, penny stocks are often outlined as stocks trading at below a share.


Some folks think about this capricious amount differently and would say that would be a better yardstick, but, whatever the definition, these are shares generally traded outside the major exchanges. They are frequently unpredictable and unpredictable and their performance is awfully tricky to monitor or foretell.


The enticement to buy thousands of shares for some cents is one that regularly ends in many folks getting their fingers burned. What you have got to remember is that there’s a reason the stock is so inexpensive – it’s actually not worth much and the chance of making a slaughtering on such shares is some distance from the foregone conclusion that some folks will try and convince you it is.


Creating the likely performance of these stocks is generally very unlikely as regularly there is little info available on the firms to do any sort of suggestive analysis. Do not be suckered into purchasing stocks just because a newsletter or e-mail tells you it’s a dead cert.


There are lots of sharks out there who will engange in the practice known as’pump and dump’, whereby they will try to generate unsubstatiated hype about a selected stock in the hope that there’ll be a rush to buy, allowing them to sell on their valueless holdings to gullible tryouts.


When you buy penny stocks you actually must excercise caution and do your own’due diligence’ – if you do not, you’ll soon finish up regretting impetuous penny stock purchases. For penny stock trading Lowtrades.com offer an excellent service.


To line up an account you’ll need to submit an application by post. This may be downloaded in PDF format from their site.


When you have opened an account you’ll need to pay for it ( more details of how to do that are listed at the site too ) and then, you are ready to trade. In extremely simplistic terms you may place orders with your broker through the net trading interface and they are going to carry out your purchasing and selling instructions.


Each trade you carry out, purchasing or selling, will cost a small commission to the broker. Presumably your interest in penny stocks implies you’re looking to make fast returns.


It’s correct that he rewards can be amazing – it is completely possible to make masses of greenbacks in a day. When you buy penny stocks you need to realize this.


By the same principle, get that wrong and the losses can shortly mount up too. Day trading is not necessarily profitable, but it is always dangerous. Naturally, if the share price falls, you’ve a call to make – sell it at a loss, or hold on in the hope that costs will recover and you can lessen your losses.


You’ve got to understand that not every time you buy penny stocks will they go up in value in the course of one trading day. This implies you might finish up with your risk capital tied up in one company, leaving you unable to make any other trades till you dump the stock.


For those with some funds to invest, this may present a little bit of a quandary when you buy penny stocks. There’s little point purchasing so few shares that whether or not the price rockets upward, you’ll make just a couple of dollars – you have to not forget to take brokerage costs from overall profits too.


On the other hand if the stock price increases by a dollar, you have 0. The simple arithmetic is easy enough, so you must look punctiliously at whether an investment is probably going to be worthwhile relative to the amount you’re able to invest.


It doesn’t need to be said the more investment capital you have, the more you stand to make, or lose when you buy penny stocks. Opening a trading account is easy enough when you know the sort of account you need.


Try a few shops to find the hottest deal for your own private circumstances. Charges will change too, and these all have effects on your bottom line, so be sure you know how much each trade is going to cost. Eventually, I can repeat my earlier recommendation – never invest anything that you are unable to afford to lose.


When you buy penny stocks you are making a bet, and if you do not have the constitution for risking the price, don’t start with online trading of any type. Chill and have a good think about what you are planning to do and what you hope to gain through your investments.


If you are thinking of day trading you’ll need to be in a position to observe your stocks across the trading day – if you aren’t going to be ready to do this, you won’t be ready to sell when the requirement arises – i.e if the price should spike temporarily. If you’d like to start trading penny stocks online, read up on the topic fastidiously and learn as much as you can.


There are masses of helpful web sites like AllPennyStocks.com where you can start to learn to buy penny stocks and also, I have included some helpful resources below for those needing to learn more. Never let anybody tell you that it’s as straightforward as falling off a log though – if it was, we’s all be millionaires by now!

AMLM.ob Investments and Reasons Why AMLM Should Be On Your Radar

 


American Lithium Minerals Inc. (OTC BB: AMLM.OB) developing projects for lithium, the mineral used to manufacture the rechargeable battery of choice for computers, cell phones, and electric and hybrid-electric cars. With lithium being such an important component of the U.S. government’s green energy plan, demand for lithium-powered vehicles is expected to increase fivefold by 2010.


Moving Borate Hills to Feasibility PhaseI


-Intent is to advance to feasibility by spring 2011
-Investing US$4.5 million dollars over the next year to complete an economic pre-feasibility study
-Phase I will include surface sampling, reconnaissance drilling and metallurgical testing.


The Borate Hills Project is a large co-product lithium and boron deposit located 20 miles west of the only producing lithium mine in North America. Recently reported Japan Oil, Gas and Metals National Corporation (JOGMEC) investment will fund completion of an economic pre-feasibility study for the Borate Hills Project. The project features a very large deposit of relatively high grades of 2750 ppm lithium (0.275%) and 10,000 ppm boron (1%).


JOGMEC’s decision to join forces with AMLM will enable American Lithium to advance the pre-feasibility stage of the Project and is ultimately expected to be instrumental in increasing the United States’ market share of production of goods using lithium power, particularly in the area of electronics and automobiles where this technology is being used increasingly more often by manufacturers due to its longer battery life and lighter weight.
