6PTRC_chart.pngAfter a few booming sessions for the stock of Petro River Oil Corp. (OTCBB:PTRC, PTRC message board) in the middle of November, things quieted down and the company stock was hovering around $0.050 price per share.

The volumes were not great and the company rarely registered trade values above $50 thousand. Yesterday, however, PTRC posted their financial report for the quarterly period ending October 31 and registered the highest volume of traded stock in more than 3 years, while making a decent jump.

The ticker climbed a good 33.33% in value, going from $0.055 to $0.066, while more than 7.1 million shares switched hands, generating a dollar volume of $487 thousand, the highest in more than 3 months of trading.

This was expected, considering the numbers contained in the published financial report.

 

  • cash: $4.1 million
  • current assets: $4.2 million
  • total assets: $17.9 million
  • current liabilities: $1.4 million
  • total liabilities: $1.8 million
  • quarterly revenue: $87 thousand
  • net income: $483 thousand

Furthermore, when looking at the six month period ended October 31, we can see that the net loss has increased by 30% compared to the same period in 2012.

The company also annouced a $6.5 million investment from Petrol Lakes Holding Limited, a newly formed investment group in China of which we managed to find no actual information apart from PTRC's announcement.

Growlife Inc. (OTCBB:PHOT) also had a great session yesterday in which their stock gained 20% in value on quite a lot of traded shares. Nutranomics, Inc. (OTCBB:NNRX) weren't that fortunate and their stock slid a whopping 37% down.
