    When we discover an undervalued company with game changing technologies, we send subscribers an Email Trade Alert. We then publish an analysis on Seeking Alpha either as an Instablog or a Yahoo syndicated article.

    As Wall Street becomes aware of the trade, we generally see an increase in price and volume, as our reports are read by over 100,000 investors annually. In 2011 and 2012 the average gain following publication was 36% per trade. In 2013, the average gain following publication was 124% per trade, primarily as a result of extending the holding period.

    Here are the results for all trades initiated in 2013:

    1. 22nd Century: 487% gain

    2. MusclePharm: 238% gain.​​

    3. Senesco: 133% gain.​​

    4. BioZone: 97% gain.

    5. MedBox: 84% gain.

    6. Oculus: 68% gain.

    ​7. MGT: 54% gain.​​

    8. Marathon: 37% gain.

    9. Pershing: 12% gain.

    Average gain per trade 2013: 126%

    ​All trades can be validated by confirming the publication date of each analysis on Seeking Alpha, which you can do by going here, and comparing the closing price the day before publication with the resulting peak price following publication.

    My concern are: Can they afford the debt?


    Do they have the cash to maintain operations (Lived with a $5M line of credit while trying to mfg product for the govt while the company was "getting back on its feet").


    If they become profitable how many shares are out there (potential P/E) and are revenues there to support a modest P/E?.
