As you read, you'll see the big red flags we've come across on these companies. And with all the great penny stocks out there… there's no reason to put a single dime into any of these companies!
This week, we're exposing a pump and dump scams on: Beamz Interactive, OTCPK:BZIC
Well, if you buy this stock don't say I didn't warn you- because there's nothing to like about it… fancy apps or not!
Red Flag #1: Paid PUMP!
Small Cap Financial Wire has been paid to promote Beamz Interactive. Here's what I dug up in their disclaimer…
"SCFW and or its affiliates has been compensated by Beamz Interactive forty five thousand restricted shares per month for three months of advisory work which has expired and has signed a new agreement for twenty five thousand restricted shares per month for a six month agreement"
If you can't read the word math, it says 45,000 restricted shares a month in the past- and 25,000 shares per month for six months! I'd think it must be hard to write unbiased research when paid this to support the share price!
Red Flag #2: Horrible Financials
The only glimmer for BZIC investors is that they actually report to the SEC. The bad news is the Beamz is in a deep hole and has a $40,000 bridge loan due to pay out this April.
Here's some more of BZIC's financial nightmare-
- $2.1 million net loss for the 3 month period ending September 2013, or a $0.09 per share loss.
- Recent 3 month gross sales of $9,523 for a gross profit of -$7,065. Meaning their cost of goods sold is greater than what they were selling it for!
- $19.7 million accumulated deficit, with $1.2 million in current liabilities
With just over $12,000 in cash on hand, it may be pretty hard to pay that $40,000 coming due in April… especially while burning through cash like they are!
However, things could theoretically change for BZIC…
But will their fortunes change fast enough is the million-dollar question. The company is pinning all hopes on the success of their apps at the upcoming CES show, and their relationship with a celebrity endorser. Here's what they say in their latest press release…
"We are devoting significant resources to raising brand awareness for our mobile interactive music entertainment applications, in addition to leveraging our partnership and product endorsement with Flo Rida."
That sounds great and all, but here's my bottom line…
We still can't eliminate a paid stock promotion is going on for BZIC. And nothing will change their massive accumulated debt and lack of operating income!
For these reasons alone, I'd leave the stock off my "buy" list.
Disclosure: I have no positions in any stocks mentioned, and no plans to initiate any positions within the next 72 hours.
