Buying for Endeavor IP, Inc. (OTCBB:ENIP
, ENIP message board
) was a bit more subdued on the last two days of the week, though the ticker added another 2.5% to its price, reaching $1.21. Trading volumes were a bit above $424,000, keeping up well despite the fact that the last promotional email came in on November 6th. ENIP has not placed any news press releases for a few days.
The company, boosted by a $1 million promotional campaign, is also enjoying a buzz on social networks, as well as a robust investors' forum presence. A big number of the forum's messages repeat the PR hype of the company, and thus the spirit of optimism is suspect. And so far, ENIP follows the script of other paid promotions, running up extremely well after a period of low activity.
The main attraction point for ENIP is a mention of a target price of $3. Also, the company has started a number of lawsuits on patent infringement. But beware- until ENIP marks success for any of those lawsuits, it all remains in the field of possibility. And this potential is touted as what a smart investor would select.
A new week would show if ENIP will survive a bit longer, and if indeed it would manage to climb to $3 before investors grow panicked and sell. Remember that ENIP prepared well, with a 14-for-one reverse split in September, and started sending PR messages even before the email campaign.
Even for companies that have almost everything going right, the lack of a promotion leaves the shares directionless. This was the case of Biozone Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (OTCBB:BZNE), which promised to spike high above $1, but retreated quickly, currently around 69 cents, with selling happening as soon as the ticker conquers a better level. So far, BZNE may be a long-term potentially lucrative stock, but right now it is offering a dizzying short-term ride.
Speaking of promoted OTCBB tickers, the higher stock tier does not guarantee that your investment won't be wiped out, just as efficiently as through a sub-penny risky selection. In the case of the Alkaline Water Co., Inc. (OTCBB:WTER) the end of the promotion brought a permanent stagnation around the 50-cent levels. Montalvo Spirits, Inc. (OTCBB:TQLA) slid down in the past months, to below 30 cents.
If you still want to test the waters with ENIP, the $1 million campaign is hardly worn out with just two emails, so the ticker may receive a new boost. Though it is still best to be aware of possible corrections and avoid investing unaffordable sums.
The pumper, 900PercentStocks, has only ENIP on its record, with just two emails. But it is possible that ENIP attracts other pumpers, paid or unpaid.
