  • Paid promoters have helped push CYNK market cap to $655 million after a 3,650% increase in the share price on Tuesday.
  • CYNK had assets of just $39 (no zeros omitted) as of March 31, 2014 and a cumulative net loss of $1.5 million. The "company" has no revenue.

  • With no assets, no revenue, and no product, CYNK has no value. Author expects that CYNK shares are worthless.

CYNK Technology (OTC:CYNK) shares soared 3650% on Tuesday after paid promotion companies simultaneously touted the company's prospects in what appears to be a coordinated effort.

Will this be enough to create the next Facebook (FB) or LinkedIn (LNKD)? It is unlikely. It is also worth noting that CYNK has one employee (discussed below) and does not even have a website. Here is a look at CYNK's most recent balance sheet:
