Apptigo International Inc (OTCPK:APPG) is a name that I believe is currently the target of a penny stock promotion scheme. It is my view that the stock's intrinsic value is somewhere near $0, and it is with conviction that I recommend that any investors currently in the name sell the entirety of their stakes immediately. I also believe that Apptigo International is a stock definitely worth shorting. My track record of identifying and publicly exposing such highly overvalued equities is excellent.
Little Revenue. Debts. No Business. Bright Future?
As is usually the case with these types of hyped-up scams, it takes only one quick glance at the balance sheet to realize that the $160M market capitalization that this equity commands is beyond ludicrous. With $420,233 total assets and $0 in revenue. It's my suspicion that the purpose of this company is not to succeed, but to sell stock. The recent volume is due to overly bullish promotional mailers. This has a very high risk of an SEC suspension.

You can see obviously someone is interested in increasing public awareness for Apptigo International Inc. Most likely the insiders, who own 8,925,000 free trading shares in Apptigo International. Why else would someone spend $23,000 to increase public awareness? I suspect the budget to be much more than what the disclaimer is stating from my experience with these types of play and the daily volume. At these levels, those are worth about $11 million! It is worth it to them, because if they can bring in buyers and liquidate their shares around these prices, that can mean millions in profits! Running pump and dump schemes is a lucrative business, and that is why we see it way too often. My job is to wake you up.
Dodi Handy Involvement
Dodi Handy is handling IR duties for Apptigo International Inc. She runs Hanover Elite and Elite Financial Communications groups. She was involved with AWSR when it saw a pump and dump campaign by awesompennystocks. She was involved with DiMi Telematics International, Inc, which saw a pump and dump campaign. I contacted the company and actually got a response from Dodi Handy. Of course she denied any involvement, but from my research anywhere she goes a pump is around the corner. Make sure to read this great blog post HERE to find out more about Dodi Handy shady backround.
DIMI Chart Mirrors APPG
What I find funny is how the pump and dump campaigns of both these companies Dodi Handy have been involved with look so similar. Take a look for yourself.
DIMI has had some splits since its campaign so I found the actual chart during its promotion on a blog.
Now it will be interesting to see if Apptigo International will have a death drop soon after couple days of bouncing like DiMi Telematics International, Inc. did. DiMi Telematics International, Inc. went from $1.30 to $0.10 in the matter of a couple days! I recommend you not to be long the stock to find out because once a stock starts dumping its hard to get out just like Apptigo International Inc first hard drop from $1.80's to low of $1.00 in one day.
If you own shares of this company, get out now. Do not hope that you can hang on to sell them to a greater fool. These shares are worthless. I have showed you that the reason for the promotional spam indicates that the individuals behind this stock scam are trying desperately to unload their worthless shares onto the unsuspecting public and book a huge profit before the inevitable collapse. If you are a more sophisticated investor and can get a borrow on these shares, then I believe that shorting this name will be highly lucrative for you. Apptigo International has shady promotion with a manipulated chart pattern. Makes me believe that it has a high risk for an SEC Halt. It is my opinion that this is too risky to hold period with a very high risk of an SEC Halt. You have been warned.
