    Penny Stocks

    So who plays with penny stocks...

    As an example

    GTSO.


    GTSO Negotiates Potentially Lucrative International E-Waste Transaction 5:00 AM ET 08/20/2013

    Today it is at .035 but the 52 week low has been .02 cents with a 52 week high of .85 cents.

    Put a buy order in when the stock drops to .025 cents as an example. Then wait for a spike to .04+ cents and sell at $7.95 a trade. If you put in $500 dollars plus your $15.90 for the transaction you can just about double up your money. That is just a loose example.

    Question is can you always sell off a penny stock instantly when you see the price spike up.

    It is at about 2 cents. I wonder if it will go lower or it is bottomed out.

    I am absolutely no expert I just read a lot. You can easily lose your shorts on stocks. I was hoping a few other people might have chimed in on stocks that look like good investments.

    Here is one stock I did move on 05-20-14. Purchased at .2032 per share. I waited too long. I was looking at this when it was about 12 cents. I'm hoping this stock hit a few bucks a share by the end of the year.

    XIDEQ

    EXIDE TECHNOLOGIES

    By June 30th they should be announcing their reorganization and I think earnings.

    Stocks seem to be fully valued, so people now are going to penny stocks to make a quick buck. Personally I would avoid them as they carry more risk than the SP 500 blue chips!

    A lot of money will be going to money heaven in a few years, so in the end it really doesn't matter.

    XIDEQ

    EXIDE TECHNOLOGIES is doing well. Currently up 23% since it was purchased 5/20/14

    Could totally tank tomorrow.


    Some good news

    Penny Stocks are very volatile and sometimes hard to buy/sell. You put a sell order in and you may not find a buyer when the stock is tanking.

    Check this client tip on 10/13/16

    When you get a phone call and the person says "Hey do you want a stock tip?" Best thing to do is not listen. I thought about this one because "stock tips" usually don't work out. This was the first tip that a client explained how he came to the conclusion it's a good stock tip


    I got in at .24 plus the 7.95 transaction on Thursday. What I normally don't do is buy more the following day but this time I did. On Friday purchase a little bit more at .37 plus the $7.95 transaction fee.


    Currently I'm at 103% on the first purchase and 31% on the second. He and a few others think it should hit $1.50 to $2 as the cost of oil increases. I see the Yahoo Finance chart shows an 1 Year Target Est of $2.

    So everyone knows I could be at a total loss by the end of the day. It's all timing.




    The judge was deciding how BREITBURN ENERGY PARTNERS was going to come out of their bankruptcy.

    This was in Forbes


    The Equity Committee Trend: When Shareholders of a Bankrupt Company Hope to Get More Than Nothing

    [COLOR=rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.870588)]The publicly traded shares of Breitburn Energy Partners - at one point expected to be worth virtually nothing after Breitburn filed for bankruptcy in May - closed at 40 cents today. The reason for the surge is today’s oral ruling in the Breitburn Energy bankruptcy case, which saw Judge Stuart Bernstein of the bankruptcy court for the Southern District of New York direct the appointment of an official committee of equityholders in the case - a once-rare development that has been happening with increasing regularity in the past year. When Breitburn filed for bankruptcy on May 15, the price of the company’s stock - which had been trading on Nasdaq under the BBEP ticker and had been as high as $6.14 just a year earlier - fell to pennies.[/COLOR]

    To be greedy or not to be greedy...

    First purchase is currently at 105.43% and second purchase is at 32.74% with a total increase of 73% on the investment.

    I stepped away for 1 hr since starting this post and it dropped to 97.59% and 27.67% with a total increase of 67.09%

    Shows you how important timing is.

    I think I will sell my initial investment and leave what is left over minus the $7.95 trade fee. Or maybe not...

    I don't know if it's Trump or not based on what I read in the news. I have people who are democrats saying the stock market highs are Obama's accomplishments.

    For 2017 I earned 20.5% even with 3 stock tips I shouldn't have listened to.

    Best performer so far has been adobe.

    From 5/9/2017 it is up 44.42% and my second purchase 11/06/17 is up 7.66%. I was on the fence in Oct whether to purchase more and waited too long. I would have been far higher than 7% if I didn't wait.


    So is the market doing well because of Obama or Trump?
