  • Tale Of Penny Stocks: Pump And Dump In Harsh Times

    The current bear market, led by the energy sector, will play out steadily. Strong companies will eventually rebound as excess supply dynamics are worked out. What will NOT rebound is penny stocks. Take a look at my top SELL/SHORT picks. In general (but not always), stocks under $5 tend to do poorly when the fundamentals are simply not there.

    A few of the short ideas came from other SA (seeking alpha) articles. The position recommended is opposite that of the calls made. Remember: articles are not recommendations, they are a starting point for ideas and for thinking. You owe it up to you from that point on.
