Stocks Under $1 One Dollar, Inc. (OTCMKTS:SNET) Slashes A Third Of Its Price August 19, 2013

What do you need to do if you want to pump a penny stock company? There are a few different approaches and there's no established path but we have witnessed some trends. Often, before putting the ticker under the promotional spotlight, the people who stand behind the company do a couple of preparations that include changes in the business plan and the management team, a stock split, an increase in the number of authorized shares and all this is frequently garnished with a couple of optimistic press releases. Then, it's just a matter of waiting for the pumpers to spring into action. This is exactly what happened to, Inc. (OTCMKTS:SNET) last week. read more

Pershing Gold Corp (OTCMKTS:PGLC) Struggling To Get Noticed August 16, 2013

Things seem to be going along nicely at Pershing Gold Corp (OTCMKTS:PGLC). In fact, on July 24, they issued a press release that we rarely get to see from a junior mining company. Apparently, they are starting work on Phase I of their drilling program at the Relief Canyon Mine property in Pershing county. That, you would agree, is a huge announcement and we must say that bombshells like this are not seen everyday. Then again, PGLC is not the typical mining penny stock. read more

Yesterday The Great American Food Chain, Inc. (OTCMKTS:GAMN) burst onto the market.

Exlites Holdings International, Inc. (OTCMKTS:EXHI) made its debut to active trading just this week when on Monday it took the market by storm trading more than 20 million shares.

Investors Are Still Not Impressed With Jones Soda Co. ( USA ) (OTCMKTS:JSDA) August 16, 2013

Unlike a large portion of the small cap ventures that we cover on these pages, Jones Soda Co. ( USA ) (OTCMKTS:JSDA) is a solid company. They have worked long and hard and they have managed to market a brand that enjoys a strong support from the people who buy it and is easily recognizable. Jones Soda's Facebook page even has over a million likes. read more

CodeSmart Holdings (OTCBB:ITEN)'s First Days Of Trading August 15, 2013

We deal with penny stock promotions around here every day and we must say that CodeSmart Holdings (OTCBB:ITEN) looks like the perfect pump set up. The business plan was changed a couple of months ago, some new people took the helm, a stock split was performed and the number of authorized shares was increased. In addition to this, some stock was sold at $1.60 (which considering the current value of $2.60 is quite a discount) and if you've followed as many pumps as we have, you know that these steps are often taken when a newly-born small cap venture is prepared for a promotional campaign. Still, as of right now, there seems to be no such thing. The newsletters are keeping quiet, we found no landing pages or paper mailer brochures, and even the message boards are pretty inactive. There are a couple of optimistic contributors on Seeking Alpha saying that ITEN will prosper, but we'll just assume that they really like the company and see if there's any merit to their claims. read more

Arch Therapeutics Inc (OTCBB:ARTH) Falling To Pieces August 14, 2013

It would appear that more and more money is being poured into the pump for Arch Therapeutics Inc (OTCBB:ARTH). The campaign started on July 8 when the landing page written by Mr. Ian Cooper went live. We talked at length already about how far-fetched his predictions, price targets and opinions are, so, instead of discussing them once again, we'll focus on the disclaimer which, during the first days of touting, said that the total promotional budget stands at around $790 thousand. read more

The movement of the stock on the other hand remained rather pessimistic. read more

BlueFire Equipment Corp (OTCMKTS:BLFR) Pumped Big Time August 14, 2013

Until about a couple of months ago, nobody could care less about BlueFire Equipment Corp (OTCMKTS:BLFR). Trading was non existent and even the almighty QuoteMedia is not able to provide us with some historical value of the shares.

Yesterday's session was pretty eventful with quite a lot of ups and downs and we decided to see what's going on. read more

Elephant Talk Communications, Inc. (NYSEMKT:ETAK) Resort To Self-Funded Promotion August 13, 2013

Cereplast Inc (OTCMKTS:CERP) On The Rise In Anticipation Of Q2 Results August 12, 2013

You can see from the chart on the right that the last six months or so haven't been the most successful in Cereplast Inc (OTCMKTS:CERP)'s history. If you take a look at the stock movement from further back in time, you'll see that the slide started quite a while ago. Friday's session, however, ended with around 20% in gains and we're wondering if this is a sign that the trend is finally about to be reversed. read more

Jones Soda Co. (OTCMKTS:JSDA) Shows Signs Of Hesitation August 12, 2013

Running a publicly traded company is not easy. You have to think about the development of the products, about signing of various agreements. You have to do a lot of due diligence, you have to make decisions that will be of benefit to the enterprise in the long run and all the while, you have to solve a host of different problems on the go. Probably the biggest challenge of them all, however, is keeping the shareholders happy – a point that was driven home by Jones Soda Co. (OTCMKTS:JSDA)'s stock performance from Friday. read more

American Soil Technologies, Inc. (OTCMKTS:SOYL) Gets Some Free Promotional Cove... August 12, 2013

Those of you who have been around penny stocks for quite a while know that thinking twice before listening to the pumpers is definitely a good call. We've seen numerous emails saying that this or that company has huge potential when in fact, the featured venture is really struggling for breath and that inevitably leads to some horrific results, but even though we're somewhat used to seeing promises for future growth of enterprises that are on their way to the bottom, the newsletters still manage to surprise us with how badly they choose their picks sometimes. American Soil Technologies, Inc. (OTCMKTS:SOYL) is a classic example. read more
