  • VOXX International: Strong Sell Due To Questionable Management Practices And Deteriorating Fundamentals [View article]
    Qualcomm is an investor in the 360Fly and when it is launched in a couple of weeks, one would be a total fool to be short, but congrats for today.

  • ITKG Breaks Out To 52-Week High And Tells The Market There's More On The Way [View article]
    Don't think we'll see dilution, as the company can exercise warrants that are already figured into the fully diluted share count. That would bring in enough money to where they would never have to dilute again. I get the sense they are finished with dilution. If they did dilute, it would be with friendlies, nothing like the convertible debt of the past.

  • American Airlines Group: Fuel And Taxes [View article]
    I love the valuation and own the stock, but I must admit .... this is by far the worst airline there ever was. They ALWAYS bait and switch their flights, i.e. last week when I booked my trip, I chose a Super 80 since it has WiFi, but when I got to the gate, it was a pile of crap RJ with no WiFi. I asked the agent where the Super 80 was and she said they don't use the Super 80 for that route .... ever. I could write all day long about how crappy AA is, but I have other things to do.

  • Irrational Overreaction In Ironclad Performance Wear Shares Creates Compelling Buying Opportunity [View article]
    The sell-off is wayyyyy overdone and the lawsuit doesn't even involve the company. People to need to realize that we also have insider buying in recent months. Great article as always.

  • The Back Story Behind InVivo Therapeutics Sell-Off [View article]
    Personally, and with plenty of litigation experience, I think the ex-CEO is selling on the advice of his lawyer, probably being told that the company might seek an injunction preventing his selling of stock until the lawsuit has been heard and if Reynolds were to lose (he will), the company might just take all his stock as part of the judgment. In the end, when the selling is finished once and for all, I look for a triple within 2 weeks tops from that point. I absolutely love this type of special situation that has now presented itself. Also, did you listen to this morning's presentation (link below) made by the new CEO ? The guy is very sharp ......

  • Barbell Strategies For Video 'Powerlifters' [View article]
    ADTM should fly when the legacy holders are finally finished with the dump, a dump that is near its end after a solid year of non-stop selling, yet a year when all selling has been met with plenty of demand on the buy side of the equation.

  • Update: Sino Agro Food Closed $25 Million Convertible Note Funding [View article]
    Here's what's on the SEC's desk as well as the lead investigator for Nasdaq new listings ......

    Sino Agro Food Inc. (SIAF) is a Chinese fraud on a massive scale. Even though SIAF trades on the OTC, they have been able to swindle away millions and millions of dollars away from extremely naïve investors through years and years of fraudulent press releases, always dangling a carrot. It wasn't until the latest charade that I decided to put my foot down in attempting to help prevent the growing shareholder base from being defrauded out of millions more.

    In early 2010, Sino Agro was a pinksheet company that wasn't fully reporting. Starting on January 29, 2010, the company (with the assistance of Chad Sykes) began to repeatedly put out false information about the timeline of becoming a fully reporting company. This repetitive false and misleading information surrounding the audit dates enticed people to buy the stock in anticipation of the company becoming fully reporting, meanwhile the company was dumping millions and millions of shares based on this fraudulent information.

    The following PR's ALL spoke about the imminent completion of the audit to become fully reporting and take notice of the dates of expected completion ....
    January 29, 2010 -

    "Company efforts to become fully reporting and quoted on the OTCBB continue to move forward on schedule. Financial reports for 2008-2009 are currently under review with audits expected to be started in late February."

    March 10, 2010 -

    "The audit process has begun with the majority of review work completed. The Company has begun preparing its non-financial information required under Regulation S-K, Standard Instructions for Filing Forms under the Securities Act of 1933."
    March 30, 2010 -

    "The Company’s auditor has completed their onsite visits of operations. Work is being done to complete the final draft on both 2008 and 2009 annual audit reports. The Company expects the audits to be published in the next 2 – 3 weeks"
    April 1, 2010 -

    "Later this month we expect to release audited annual reports for both 2008 and 2009. This will provide the market with 4 years of audited financial statements for review in determining an investment opportunity"

    These statements in each PR above are egregious lies. Why ?
    On May 24th, 2010, I called SIAF's auditor (Madsen & Associates at #801-268-2632) and spoke with Ted Madsen. I was suspicious about the statements SIAF made repeatedly along with the massive selling of stock coiciding with the false and misleading PR's. What Madsen (no longer SIAF's auditor) told me to my surprise was nothing less than shocking. Here is a post I made detailing the conversation .......

    I learned from the auditor that the statements made above by the company were absolute lies. First of all, Ted Madsen sent a signed engagement letter to SIAF on April 9th for audit work to be performed for the years 2008 and 2009 and he told SIAF that his projected completion date for 2008 and 2009 would be August 1st and not before he could make an on-site visit later in July.
    The company KNEW this all along, yet they were putting out false PR's in late January, throughout the month of March and again on April 1, stating that audits would be completed by early April, meanwhile Madsen & Associates' services hadn't even been engaged yet. LOL. Are you kidding me ?

    Now are you ready for this ? As of May 24th, 2010, Ted stated that he had not yet received the signed engagement letter back from SIAF.

    Shareholders (including myself) lost a great deal of money based on the company's fraudulent statements, as we were enticed to buy the stock in thinking the audit would be completed at any moment when in fact the auditor's services hadn't even been engaged as of May 24th and the company was informed early on that the auditor wouldn't be able to make the trip to China until mid-July at the earliest, yet the company repeatedly led shareholders and potential investors to believe that the audit was almost finished when it was months away from even being started.
    As if this isn't bad enough (I am the only one with this information from the ex-auditor), the perpetual lies have continued, as the company further enticed the public to buy stock with a PR on September 19, 2012, stating a cash dividend would be paid on May 30, 2014 (I believe this date may have been altered by the company) and of course when May 30, 2014 rolled around, NO dividend was paid ......

    Meanwhile, after this PR about cash dividends and other numerous false and misleading PR's about uplisting to various exchanges, unsuspecting individuals continued to buy the stock as the company continued to dump millions and millions of shares into the market.

    What gets even more troublesome is the fact that there's a high-level employee of American Airlines/U.S. Airlines that is soliciting the company's (SIAF) stock amongst thousands of employees through out the airline industry. He updates investors of SIAF through the alias "hyperboy262626" on .......

    All of his postings can be read at the above link and he was responsible for organizing a recent meeting in Charlotte (one of U.S. Air's airline hubs) in which he arranged for SIAF's CEO to fly in from China to pitch the stock to hundreds of airline employees. When the CEO was asked about the identity of this "hyperboy262626" in the company's last conference call, the question was avoided and they quickly moved on to another subject. Meanwhile, airline employees across America continue to pour in millions and millions of dollars into the company without having a clue about the blatant and massive fraud perpetrated by SIAF and many other Chinese companies trading on U.S. exchanges. I called American Airlines with a warning about this individual and they said a company security specialist would get back with me. To this date, I have heard back from no one.

    I will gladly testify about the massive fraud committed by Sino Agro Food Inc. and I haven't even touched on the other numerous false and misleading statements made year after year. I was the only one who had personal knowledge about what the ex-auditor stated about timelines, etc. about the original audit and feel like this is the most important fact to disclose to the SEC, establishing the very long trail of fraud this company continues to engage in.

    On May 25, 2010 (morning after I discovered the massive fraud), I received an e-mail from the company's IR representative, Chad Sykes (well known for having represented many pump and dump pink sheet companies), stating they would get to the bottom of things. Following receipt of his e-mail, I received a call from the company's CEO, as detailed here in this post I made that same day ....

    Shortly after this, I received a call from the company's legal counsel, The Sourlis Law Firm (Joe Patricola & Philip Magri) threatening me with a lawsuit in which I revealed in this post here .....

    The attorney I was working with ended up not filing a suit against the CEO and the company because he stated he was too busy starting a Title company. The suit threatened against me by the company's law firm was never filed and I never heard from them again.

    I hate the way this stock trades, as every single little spike gets sold in minutes, but with anticipated EPS of $1.81 this year, the stock is stupid cheap.

  • Update: MGT Technology's Q2 Earnings - Owning Up To The Worst Call Of My Career [View article]
    Iroquois keeps loading the boat and the Markman hearing is finally here (next month). If you like the stock at $5.00, you have to love it down here below $1.00, especially with (finally) real numbers finally being reported. There is HOPE on the gaming side, but also take into consideration that MGT just said the need for money now starts to dwindle going forward. There's also a presentation showing the damages from patent infringement of around $18 billion, not million. And .... has anyone seen the new presentation on the company's website from last week ? Pretty cool video along with slides, but of course .... the company told no one about it.

  • Update: Sino Agro Food Earnings [View article]
    You guys don't realize SIAF is a total ChiScam fraud that's lied to shareholders for years and will continue to do so. If people saw the extremely detailed "whistleblower" report I recently filed against this company with the SEC along with Nasdaq's lead investigator, they wouldn't touch this scam with a 10 foot pole. Sooner or later, the SEC shuts down this fraud for good and now there's reports the company owes a monster tax bill to the IRS and guess what ? Shareholders will again foot the bill. And BTW, the authorized share count is about to be jacked up yet again. Any day now.
