Should I be invested in penny stocks?
Answer: Hell no!
Do not invest in penny stocks!
Marijuana is going to be a huge growth industry with lots of profits to be made, but that doesn’t mean you buy a hyped up weed-related stock that has no revenue, no earnings and probably just changed its name and stock symbol so that the stock could go up on hype and insiders can sell their worthless shares to you.
Lesson? DON’T EVER BUY A PENNY STOCK! Don’t play with hype. Remember that you are the mark in the penny stock market including pot stocks. Being under a dollar has nothing to do with being undervalued.
Even if you don’t know anything about how to read a company’s financial reports or you don’t understand what a market cap is or why you’re always the mark at the table when it comes to hyped up penny stocks, you can and should at least read the SEC filings or anything else you can about any stock you’re considering buying. For example, just go read Terra Tech’s latest 10k. They have no operations and no sales and were a VoIP company til pot got hot. VoIP stands for Voice over Internet Protocol, which is a telecom thing, not a pot thing! You can find most companies, including this TRTC’s SEC filing, on Yahoo Finance.
David Merkel explains why in this absolute must-read for every body who’s ever been tempted by those ads you see on Yahoo! Finance and elsewhere about trading penny stocks. Please read this article about why you should never invest in penny stocks if you own any penny stocks or are thinking about ever trading penny stocks.
On Penny Stocks – Some key quotes from David in the article:
I am often a fan of neglected small cap stocks. When I find a good one, I add it to my portfolio. But I am generally not a fan of stocks that trade below $1.00. Why? Because there are many promoters of the stocks who deceive those who are illiterate regarding the markets, promising big gains, but end up delivering significant losses.
Amateurs who invest in volatile asset classes tend to lose money, and more money as the asset classes get more volatile. Penny stocks are volatile in the extreme. Even leaving aside the promoters who pump-and-dump, it is a rare person who can approach these in a businesslike manner.
Amid growing frenzy over an Ebola outbreak in West Africa and fears it could spread, Canadian-based Tekmira Pharmaceuticals Corp. has moved a little closer to getting approval for a treatment that combats the deadly virus, sending its shares soaring Friday.
Both U.S. and Canadian shares of Tekmira (TKMR +34.20%) (CA:TKM) were up more than 28% in recent action, reaching new highs for the session.
Tekmira announced late Thursday that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration gave verbal approval to change the status on its drug, known as TKM-Ebola, to a partial clinical hold from a full clinical hold. The company says this could potentially allow the use of the drug in those already infected with Ebola. TKM-Ebola is being developed under a New Drug Application with the assistance of the Pentagon’s medical countermeasures office.
“We have been closely watching the Ebola virus outbreak and its consequences, and we are willing to assist with any responsible use of TKM-Ebola. The foresight shown by the FDA removes one potential roadblock to doing so,” Dr. Mark Murray, Tekmira’s chief executive, said in a statement. “This current outbreak underscores the critical need for effective therapeutic agents to treat the Ebola virus. We recognize the heightened urgency of this situation, and are carefully evaluating options for use of our investigational drug within accepted clinical and regulatory protocols.”
TKM-Ebola currently is in Phase 1 testing; most drugs have to go through three test phases before winning approval for marketing. The drug has been used on non-human primates and proved 100% effective in protecting them from lethal doses of the Zaire Ebola virus.
The announcement comes as other drug makers are hurrying to find a cure for Ebola as the World Health Organization has declared a medical emergency in West Africa. Reports say 932 people have died and nearly 800 more have contracted the disease, mostly in Guinea, Liberia, Sierra Leone and Nigeria. One patient, Spanish priest Miguel Pajares, has been flown home to Madrid for treatment.
Two Americans, Dr. Kent Brantly and Nancy Writebol, survived after being treated with a vaccine made by privately held Mapp Biopharmaceutical Inc., based in San Diego.
Tekmira’s news seems to be having a ripple effect for other anti-Ebola drug makers. BioCryst Pharmaceuticals Inc. BCRX +10.78% made no significant announcements regarding its drug, now known as BCX4430, but it shares jumped more than 10% at one point and were up 9% in recent action.
BCX4430 proved effective in treating not only Ebola but Marburg virus as well, the company announced in March. BioCryst is developing the drug in conjunction with the U.S. Army’s Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases and hopes it will prove effective in treating a number of viruses that pose a threat to health or national security.
X-Money: Okay does anybody smell a setup? Gee I wonder how long Tekmira executives has been planning all of this?
Apparently Wikipedia needs a thorough update especially on crediting contributions to the Sumerians. The Sumerians gave the world astrology. Sumerian astrology tablets are the first historical record of astrology. They are literally the oldest astrological documents. They named many of the constellations and defined the nature of numerous bodies in the solar system. The Sumerians taught the Babylonians astrology. Ptolemy and others then learned from the Babylonians. And we learned from them. Apparently history is leaving them out or altered on for insidious reason.
I went to look at Sidereal and tropical astrology. What comes up is “A sidereal system is used in Hindu astrology” There’s no mention of Sumerians creating zodiac astrology and what’s more infuriating is that it also states, “In 1995, Walter Berg introduced his 13-sign zodiac, which has the additional sign of Ophiuchus.” Sumerian created sidereal astrology over 6,000 years ago. They was actually the first true astronomers. Walter Berg even have a chart that is more jacked up. It is true that history is written by the victors. It is definitely proof in the pudding that either unknown reptilian shape-shifting species that controls the governments, health care, food services and financial systems is making sure we stay in the dark by erasing Sumerian Empire from existence.
The Epic of Gilgamesh is among the earliest known works of literature. An epic is a long poem that tells the story of legendary or heroic people or gods. Like most epics, the first stories of Gilgamesh began as oral stories handed down by word of mouth. Hundreds of years after the poets first spoke of Gilgamesh; the legends were collected and recorded on clay tablets.
The story takes place nearly five thousand years ago. Gilgamesh was the king of the wealthy city of Urduk. The king was strong and handsome, but he was also cruel. Gilgamesh forced the people of Urduk to build him great palaces. He also made his subjects live in constant fear. When the people of Urduk begged the gods for help, they led Enkidu to Urduk. Enkidu was also big and strong, but he was wild and ignorant of the ways of civilized people. Enkidu was raised in the forest where he lived with the animals. When Enkidu learned of Gilgamesh’s cruelty, the wild man challenged the mighty king to fight. As the two powerful men battled, they realized they admired one another; so instead of remaining enemies, they became inseparable friends.
The unlikely pair left Urduk to embark on many adventures. Gilgamesh and Enkidu entered the forbidden Cedar Forest where the gods lived, but they soon faced a grotesque monster named Humbaba.
"in order to protect the Cedar Forest [the gods] assigned Humbaba as a terror to human beings; Humbaba’s roar is a flood, his mouth is fire, and his breath is death!”
When Gilgamesh and Enkidu tricked the beast, the powers of Humbaba were spread over the lands of Sumer.
Gilgamesh displeased the goddess Ishtar, so she sent the fearsome Bull of Heaven to destroy the crops of the Sumerian farmers. Gilgamesh and Enkidu killed the bull. This enraged the gods, so they caused Enkidu to fall ill and die.
Gilgamesh was heartbroken by the death of his friend. The king also feared that one day he would also die, so Gilgamesh began to search for the secret of eternal life. One version of the epic describes a terrible flood that covered the earth many years before the time of Gilgamesh. Gilgamesh went on a long journey to meet Utnapishtim, an elderly man who survived the flood because the gods warned him of the coming deluge. Utnapishtim told Gilgamesh,
“The life that you are seeking you will never find. When the gods created man they allotted to him death, but life they retained in their own keeping.”
Gilgamesh returned home filled with wisdom from his adventures with Enkidu and Utnapishtim. Gilgamesh became a gentle ruler who no longer mistreated the people of Urduk. Gilgamesh realized that he could not escape death, but he could live on in the memories of the people he loved.
The Epic of Gilgamesh had many parallels with to the story of Noah and a great flood in the Old Testament of the Jewish and Christian holy books.
Modern science has discovered that there was a marked increase in the sea levels about 6,000 years ago as the last ice age ended. The melting ice drained to the oceans causing the sea levels to rise more than ten feet in one century. Gilgamesh may be connected with the end of the ice age.
Were the Ubaidian people reptile beings? It would explain the 13th Zodiac Sign that represent constellation, Ophiuchus. Do you think these reptile beings are still here as shape shifters? There are conspiracy theorists proof of one with the infamous video of Shape Shifting Secret Service on YouTube. If this indeed has any merit then what if the Illuminati are a group of these shape shifting reptile creatures that are making decisions that basically enslaving us by constant monitoring through NSA and Google and systematically killing us. Who truly developed the drug they used in executions and how long before it will become airborne? We are having a climate change that does make the Earth more habitable to the reptilian nature. We now witness the rise of Ebola Virus. The disease typically occurs in outbreaks in tropical regions of Sub-Saharan Africa. From 1976 (when it was first identified) through 2013, fewer than 1,000 people per year have been infected.The largest outbreak to date is the ongoing 2014 West Africa Ebola outbreak, which is affecting Guinea, Sierra Leone, Liberia and likely Nigeria. As of August 2014 more than 1600 cases have been identified. Efforts are ongoing to develop a vaccine; however, none yet exists. Is this the end?
