  • Nutrastar International: If It Sells At Net Cash Per Share, It Will Almost Triple In Price. [View article]
    eqp,

    If not said in confidence I would like to know what Richard had to say as he is a very important part of the confidence in Nutrastar not being a scam.

    China stocks as a whole have proved to be very risky utra jada hfgb ckgt wkbt stock I have also owned just quit reporting giving investors little recourse but to lose all their money.

    I have been a die hard by holding on to nuin & cpqq because they are still fully reporting but investors need to know they will share in cash flow at some point in time.

    I would also be interested in what is found out with a real visit to the factory.

    From what I have heard from Gary a friend who had a visit done,,, the factory is real & Mr Tick is a wonderful man.

    Just got off the phone with IR & Howard Gostftand had no answers to why revenue guidance & earnings were below what investors expected.

    He says demand is strong in China yet health drinks are not making a strong showing.

    He doesn't think acqiusitions are the answer & i do.

    He doesn't think a dividend is forthcoming & I think they should even if it costs them a premuim converting to dollars.

    I thought Cordyceps Militaris was at 100 ton capacity last year, now they say that won't even happen by 2014 yearend.

    I still like Nutrastar longer term but they sure put a damper on my short & intermediate growth prospects.

  • Nutrastar: $5.80 Cash Per Share And A Highly Profitable Business For Less Than $2 Per Share [View article]
    I am not a big fan of tech. charts as they apply to lightly traded stocks like Nutrastar unless the fundamentals & increased volume confirm.

    P&F pattern for Nutrastar showed a triple top breakout on Jan. 8th 2014 with a preliminary bullish price obj. $8.50.

    I am raising my conservative $6.00 price target to $8.50 to conform to this update as I am also impressed with Nutrastars ability to only give back a small amount on light volume since its further breakout on better than 10x normal volume last week when volume spiked to 350,000 shares two days in a row.

    Look at the p/e ratio of 2.7 vs 5 year average of 3.9 & p/book of 0.5 vs 1.2 & p/sales of 1.3 vs 2.0 & you can see how undervalued Nutrastar is even now after its advance.

    On a growth rate basis Nutrastar is even more undervalued as U.S. stocks growing like Nutrastar would be valued @ 30x its future projected eps.

    Lets give Nutrastar a 50% discount for being Chinese,,,,I project that Nutrastar eps was $1.40 in 2013 & with a very conservative 15% increase in 2014 we come up with a price to growth target of $24.00.

    Now this seems kinda far fetched but thanks to Mr Fearon giving Nutrastar some believability it could indeed be the stock of 2014.

    The reason Nutrastars products are not found in Hong Kong has been explained by Nutrstar in its filings they have been waiting on more cordyceps to be cultivated & harvested.

    Now that they have beefed up production to over 100 tons per year they have plans to introduce consumer products into not only Hong Kong but Japan,Korea,Australia & Southeast Asia.

    Mr. Fearon should help with opening channels the U.S. & Canada although Chinese Med. products are not regulated in the U.S. & some Nutrastar products are already available via e-commerce.

  • Nutrastar - A Great Hidden Opportunity For 2014 [View instapost]
    Nutrastar has been increasing its ability to cultivate & harvest Cordyceps Militaris by about 20% a year since 2010 & currently has capacity of over 100 tons per year.
    This will facilitate a faster launch of consumer products that had been delayed by the lack of enough golden grass.
    Global markets that had been on hold in [Japan,Korea,Australia & sountheast Asia] as well as further expanding in China & HongKong.
    This projects a visibly strong growthrate over the next 5 years & margins should be maintained.

    Nutrastar is consolidating its gains on very light volume & from a technical view 1st support @$3.26 has not been breached today.

    Profit taking is healthy as it releaves the weaker holders of there shares.

    I do not expect anymore 52 week highs until 2013 numbers are released but I maybe wrong if support continues this strong on pull backs.

    The Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center,,

    Has found Cordyceps useful in treating;;

    fatigue,sexual dysfunction,coughs,as a immune supplement & some cancers as it somehow restricts the growth of cancer cells thus aiding in reducing tumor size.

  • Nutrastar International: If It Sells At Net Cash Per Share, It Will Almost Triple In Price. [View article]
    After a astounding rise to $3.25 a new 52 week high besting the old highs of $2.60 Nutrastar back tracked to finish the day @$2.99 up $0.99 on the day a almost 50% rise.

    More to come imo when Nutrastar reports 2013 results my guess around $1.40eps & with increased production of Cordyceps Militaris to over 100 tons 2014 should be another solid year as Global markets in Japan,HongKong,Australia & Southeast Asia will now be able to be supplied with consumer related products that have been kept on the backburner awaiting increased production of golden grass[Cordyceps Militaris].

    My target remains $6.00 in 2014 based on Nutrastars cash value even though I believe that is still a undervaluation.jmho

    I got out of ckgt when they quit reporting ,wkbt has also stopped reporting but I continue to hold because the pps salvages very little.

    I must add that I swing trade Chinese stocks & overall I am ahead on ckgt but not wkbt.

    I had some 10 baggers in Chinese stocks when times were good ,aob was my 1st & utra was my last one.

    Things continue to change is a constant in the stock market & I believe after the big blood bath in Chinese stocks the last few years most of the frauds have left the building.

    For 2014 I believe selected fully reporting Chinese stocks will make a come back & I have over 50 years experience investing in small cap growth oriented stocks that are fundamentally sound in basing that opinion.

    Without risk there is little reward & I like the 20% annual returns I netted other than 2011-2013 my only losing years.

    And I must admit 2011-13 was a bloodbath causing me to give back 20% of my gains.

    Nice brisk trading this morning & the mm is letting the pps rise to meet demand.

    I do not expect anymore new 52 week highs until after they report final 2013 results but with all these write ups Nutrastar is getting I maybe wrong.

    However with over a 100 tons of Cordyceps now available to further launch consumer products into the stream 2014 looks like more strong growth.

  • Nutrastar: $5.80 Cash Per Share And A Highly Profitable Business For Less Than $2 Per Share [View article]
    Thru the 1st 9 months of 2013 Nutrastars growthrate has increaed dramatically & 2013 yearend results will continue that trend & 2014 I expect more of the same.

    By increasing production of Cordyceps Militaris to 100 tons neglected consumer products can now be more fully launched.

    Also Global markets & parts of China not now serviced can be entered.

    Outlets in Japan,Korea,HongKong,&... Asia along with Australia have been awaiting product availability.

    And with current demand 6x supply Nutrastar need to think about further increasing its supply of Cordyceps Militaris.

    55 of 75 buildings owned by Nutrastar are still not being used for golden grass cultivation & harvest so the future is brighter than the present.

  • Nutrastar: $5.80 Cash Per Share And A Highly Profitable Business For Less Than $2 Per Share [View article]
    Cordyceps Militaris has a projected global demand of 1550 tons a year by 2016 well in excess of aggregate production capacity of 550 tons a year[source; Market Survey of Cordyceps Militaris 2012]

    Nutrastar currently has 100 tons of that capacity with 20 buildings currently in operation.

    Nutrastar owns 100 building that can be used to house the growth & development of Cordyceps Militaris[source presentation on Nutrastars website]

    I have followed & owned shares for a while my handle is pappytom,,,

    I believe Mr Fearon intends to help take Nutrastars products international.

    Cordycepin Compound one developed product has a 3-Deoxyadenosine agent that has shown promise in reducing cancer tumor size & boosting the immune system.

    Lets talk about demand for Cordyceps Militaris Nutratrars main product a bit;;;international demand 1000tons per year & China 500tons per year with annual growth rate of over 13%.

    Current production capacity is far less than demand with Nutrastar being by far the worldwide production leader.

    Nutrastar probably had eps of $1.40 fully diluted in 2013 & probably continue to grow at a 15% clip in China alone over the next 5 years.

    It owns enough buildings in China to increase current production of Cordyceps Militaris by a factor of 5x if its decides to do so.

    So with international & domestic demand for its products if reached for Nutrastar could double its growth rate imo to 30% over the next 5 years.

    I realize this compounded figure is fantasy currently eps $4.25+in 5 years but if value investors are starting to notice Nutrastars undervaluation now what will growth investors value it at then.

  • Is This Pharma Stock Poised For A Strong Comeback? [View article]
    China is corrupt & until it allows its audits to be verified all Chinese stocks should be barred from trading in the U.S.

    Furthermore investors under international law should be allowed to sue those responsible for bringing these stock onto the U.S. for trading.

    And those responsible both Chinese & U.S. should face prosecution under international law with the full backing of the U.S. miltiary if the need arises.
