  • Growlife - It's All Smoke And Mirrors: Research Uncovers Why Shares Are Overhyped And Overvalued [View article]
    Growlife isn't the only MJ stock with a "complicated structure." There's a whole lotta smoke being blown in this entire area and very little transparency.

    With the recent surge in $PHOT's stock volume (and price) over the past month, obviously some folks are buying into the hype. Just hope they don't get burned too badly...

    What I find really interesting is how PDEX stock zoomed from $2.66 to $3.34 (+25%) on 55k volume in the first three minutes after this article was published. Some folks sure are fast readers!

  • The Internet Of Things: Intel And Google Are Pushing The Trend [View article]
    Thanks so much for the forward looking article and your efforts in pulling this all together, but have you considered the cyber-security of any of these potential devices?

    In other words (IOW), if I stuck a roast in my oven at 300 degrees at 3pm and expected to serve it 7:00 pm, would I be confident that someone wouldn't turn up the heat and burn it?

    Something fishy is definitely going on with these stocks. My guesses are as follows:

    1. The pump & dump is a bait for something bigger
    2. It's a diversionary tactic
    3. It's an artifact of an ancillary scheme
    4. It's part of a more complicated algorithm involving other stocks and/or indices

    Since many questions remain unexplained, I wouldn't ever recommend shorting them. The only way I would play them is to the long side, and then only with a small amount of mad money that one can afford to lose.

    Perhaps the way to solve this puzzle is to follow the money--who has made it and who has lost it?

    Buying a lot of cheap out of the money SPX options would be a way for someone of means or a hedge fund to actually skew the SKEW, don't you think?

    I think you hit the nail smack on its head. This is not your mom & pop pump & dump--it's a very sophisticated p & d. I'm seeing this all over the place--just look at the chart of LOTE (Lot78). Same story as VISN.

    I think this is run by insiders who control the stock. They start buying (from each other?) at low prices as trading volume increases. The reason there's no stock to short is because they own it all. When the stock rises, they start slowly selling their positions. The question now is why is there still no stock to short?

    I've been looking at this for a year or so and there is definitely something fishy going on. I just haven't had time to figure it out, but good for you for voicing your doubts.

    I'm right there with you.

  • Full Steam Ahead For Marine Shippers -- December 26 [View instapost]
    Hi Chris,

    The entire group has been badly beaten down for one thing. I think the other is a bet on the global recovery. Also, some of the ones based in Greece (SB, NM) are benefitting from the Greek recovery. SB has purchased new vessels at low prices and NM recently posted blow-out earnings with a continuing positive outlook.

    One big caveat in this space is the enormous amount of debt held by some companies. But, if they're well-run and the global economy continues to improve, then they should have the funds to begin paying down their debt (generally needed to acquire new vessels). So, if you're interested in investing in the shippers, it would behoove you to closely peruse their balance sheets, management efficiencies, and future revenue forecasts.

    I'm certainly not an expert in this space but them's my two dracmas.

    Thanks for your feedback!
