PRMO volume is starting to pick up, and I don't think it will be long before this stock starts to get a head of steam going. These triple zero stocks can get a mind of their own and with gold sitting near all-time highs, investors are looking for the next big gold stock. PRMO just might be that stock.
BFHJ news out bolstered the stock and could be signal another potential rally for this stock. It certainly deserves watching going forward.
AWYI money keeps pouring into this stock. One thing that never lies with penny stocks is money flow and AWYI has got it going on. This was a $.012 stock back in 2008, and while I don't see that price coming this year, I do think there is plenty of more room to the upside for AWYI.
STAU this stock burst higher in the middle of today's session before closing at $.0012. I really like this stock and think it could see $.002 - $.003 in the very near term.
History of Pink OTC
Before the creation of the Pink Sheets, OTC markets were fragmented and inefficient. In the early 1900s it was the custom of bond houses, investors, investment dealers and brokers to offer securities, both new and outstanding issues, through advertisements in financial publications and in the financial pages of the leading daily newspapers. Also, they prepared circulars, which described the offerings and distributed these to their clients and to other investment firms. In 1904, Roger W. Babson, the financier who founded Babson College, established a statistical organization to collect this information. Mr. Babson's organization, based in Wellesley Hills, Massachusetts, sought out every source of bond offering information. They systematized this voluminous amount of information about issues and quotations into a once-a-month publication.
In 1911, a Boston-based financial book publisher turned his office over to the care of his assistant and boarded a train to New York. His errand was to consult with investment dealers and brokers; and half the country's investment firms were to be found in lower Manhattan. Calling on one investment dealer after another, he asked, "Would you support a service that told you each day the securities in which other dealers and brokers were interested, the amounts they were willing to buy and sell and the prices bid and asked?" Dealers said yes. And the publisher, Arthur F. Elliot, returned to Boston, brought his publishing business to New York and there organized the original service of reporting daily security quotations of investment dealers and brokers in the OTC market.
Mr. Elliot's and Mr. Babson's organizations and services complemented each other, making the combining of the two a natural step. Accordingly, the two services were consolidated and The National Quotation Bureau was organized in October of 1913.
By this time market quotations were being reported each day for firms in five Eastern cities, and plans were laid to extend the service more widely to other financial communities throughout the country. The NQB used the latest in telecommunications and printing technology to rapidly extended its service westward to city after city, and within a few years it was reporting quotations for dealers and brokers in more than 50 centers from coast to coast. The Pink SheetsTM, the Yellow SheetsTM and the Stock and Bond Summaries became integral tools for OTC Dealers and OTC Investors.
The privilege of publishing quotations has always been available only to registered broker/dealers. In the past, broker/dealers wanting to publish quotations had to satisfy financial net worth standards and disclosure requirements. They had to provide financial information and references from banks and two New York Stock Exchange member firms. Firms had to provide ten-year histories of each partner, officer, principal stockholder and trader. A statement of clearance arrangements was also required. The establishment of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission through the Securities Act of 1933, the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and the National Association of Securities Dealers through the Maloney Act amendments to the Exchange Act in 1938, created a system to regulate and oversee broker-dealers and the OTC market. At the outset, the NQB had imposed higher standards than the SEC or NASD on OTC Market Makers. In the early sixties, the quotation service was opened to any broker/dealer registered with the SEC and thus, by default, any NASD member.
In 1963, NQB was purchased by a big conglomerate, Commerce Clearing House. CCH was a publisher of reference books. They viewed the NQB products as books and therefore did not want to invest in new technologies. Thus in response to market needs, the NASD established The NASDAQ Stock Market®, a real-time dealer quote service. Using technology to improve markets, NASDAQ® has become a huge success.
NQB continued as a paper-based publisher, turning out fewer books and fewer quotes.
In 1997, the NQB came into the hands of a new management group dedicated to using leading edge technology to improve the services offered to customers. Just like Mr. Elliot, NQB made another pilgrimage to its customers in the OTC trading community. One after another said, "We want a real time quotation service." As a result, in September of 1999, NQB introduced the Electronic Quotation Service, a leading edge Internet based real-time quotation service for OTC equities and bonds.
In June of 2000, NQB changed its name to Pink Sheets LLC and introduced www.otcmarkets.com a premier financial web portal for information about OTC securities trading and issuers.
Dedicated to serving the OTC markets for almost 90 years and empowered by the Internet, Pink Sheets has transformed itself to be a vital information and software application provider for OTC markets in the years to come.In April 2008, Pink Sheets LLC announced that it changed its name to Pink OTC Markets Inc. The name change reflects both the company's conversion from a Delaware limited liability company to a Delaware corporation and more accurately communicates the company's preeminent position as a technology and financial information provider for the U.S. Over-the-Counter securities markets. Through its electronic quotation, trading and information platforms, Pink OTC Markets provides technology services and information that enable OTC market participants to communicate, connect and categorize, enhancing OTC market transparency, efficiency, and liquidity for broker-dealers, issuers, and investors

VLCO interest is starting to grow for this movie production stock. The company recently retired 20 million shares, which boddes well for anyone taking a stake in this company.
AWYI has come back to life in a big way and looks regain its form from 2008. Back then this was a $.012 stock and then the financial crisis hit. At $.0015 you still are looking at the potential for big gains down the road.
PRMO this stock remains the cheapest gold stock in the stock market. With today's annual filing we found out just how cheap this stock is. $18 million in assets, almost $7 million in revenue and $2.3 million in net profit. At some point investors will catch onto this stock and send it higher. Getting in before the crowd is one of the best ways to make money in this market.
The company's latest annual filing reveals what I have thought all along, PRMO is the cheapest gold stock out there. They are growing revenues, posting millions in profits, and is trading quietly at $.0002. I don't think this will be the case much longer.
To top it off PRMO has over $18 million in assets. That is a substantial number for a triple zero stock. Most transparent triple zero stocks have very little, if any, assets. Also consider they have over $11 million more in assets than liabilities. While some see a large share count, I see a gold stock that has been under quiet accumulation. I think many will be surprised when this stock finally starts to run.
With these triple zero stocks there are always the naysayers, those who doubt the potential these stocks have. More often then not they provide a good indication of exactly what won't happen. The way to make money trading penny stocks is to buy when no one else wants to, or believes it to be the right thing to do.
PRMO isn't trading for $.0002 because people want to buy this stock. But I think that will all change in the near future.
Back in the middle of October, AWYI sat quietly with no interest. Only the Guru foresaw the potential this stock had to reward investors. This is what I wrote about AWYI at the time to my subscribers, the date was October 14th, 2010:
AWYI - Ariel Way, Inc
Bid noneAsk $.0001 Three Market Makers (NITE, CSTI, VERT)
Authorized 2 billion
Last Known Outstanding 651,983,983
This stock has been dormant since late 2008, or almost two years. The company remains active at its secratary of state, meaning things could get going again at anytime. This stock traded from low triple zero's all the way to $.012 in 2008, while I am not saying that will happen again, it is good to know what the potential this stock has if the company awakens from its dormancy.
Usually a company that folds up shop does not keep active at the secratary of state. The fact the AWYI remains active tells me they have plans for the future, whether that is right now or further down the road.....
Overall AWYI is a stock that at $.0001/$.0002 could offer a great reward if something were to transpire with the company in the future. As long as it is still active at the Secretary of State the chance is there for this stock to get reinvigorated.
This is what the chart looks like since my alert:
Since I alerted this stock to my subscribers AWYI has indeed become reinvigorated and looks to regain much of the market capitalization it lost back in 2008.
I want to congratulate those who believed in me and my call, you are sitting on quite a profit and that could not make me any happier. My goal is to help everyone profitably navigate the penny stock market. While it is not an easy task, stocks like AWYI show that I have an uncanny ability to find those big gains before anyone else.

PRMO as I have said previously PRMO is the cheapest gold stock in the entire stock market. Anyone wishing an inexpensive way to capitalize on the recent rise in the price of gold need to look no further than PRMO. This stock has found solid support and I would no be surprised to see it start to gain momentum over the coming days and weeks. This stock is ripe for a big rally.
STAU is shaping up to be an excellent trade. The chart shows a stock that is slowly grinding higher, with an RSI showing neither overbought or oversold conditions. The slow move higher is both healthy and desirable for this stock and gives me reason to believe that this rally is still in its infancy.
UWRL we are still waiting for the company to get its house in order. Four months in the penny stock market is like 4 years anywhere else. Investors have shown some semblance of patience, but the tipping point is drawing near. I think the current prices offer a great chance to capitalize on UWRL getting the skull and bones removed from Pink Sheets.
PCFG the stock closed up over 60% today, and looks to build upon those gains tomorrow. Certainly this is a stock to watch heading into the holiday.
OTC 101 — Part 2 - Trading
As discussed in Part 1 – Market Structure, the U.S. OTC market contains the same participants and incentives as other U.S. markets. The same is true for trading in OTC securities.
OTC trading, and all securities trading, responds to the supply and demand in the market place for certain securities. Individual investors, professional investors, and broker-dealers desire to buy and sell securities at certain prices. The number of orders, the volume (e.g., share size), the timing of buy and sell orders, and the availability of information determines how prices will move for a particular security.
The best way to illustrate the OTC market trading process is to step through a specific example. This example is tailored for individual investors, although many of the same principles apply to institutional investors.
- Investor Selects a Broker-Dealer – Only FINRA registered broker-dealers may execute trades, so investors must select a broker-dealer (or multiple broker-dealers) to execute trades.
- Investor Makes an Investment Decision – The most difficult decision is the investment decision which should be based on thorough research on the company and security. OTCMarkets.com provides investors with comprehensive, in-depth data, including trade data, company news, and company financials to help facilitate an investor’s investment decisions.
- Investor Defines the Order – Investors must define the order they wish the broker-dealer to execute. There are two main order types: the Limit Order and the Market Order.
- Limit Orders allow investors to specify the exact price they are willing to accept for a buy or sell order. While Limit Orders are designed to offer more price protection for investors, a Limit Order may not be executed if the price of the security does not reach the price stated in the Limit Order.
- Market Orders direct the broker-dealer to immediately execute either a buy or sell order at the current ‘market price’ – the best bid or offer.
- Broker-Dealer Executes the Order – Once a broker-dealer receives an order, they often go through the following steps/decisions as part of the trading process:
- Execute Trade Internally
- Trade Marketable Order Externally
- Create/Edit Quote on Inter-dealer Quotation System
- Trade Non-Marketable Order Externally
- Execute Internally – Broker-dealers usually will first determine if they can or choose to execute the trade internally. Internal executions occur if they can ‘match’ (same prices for a buy and sell order) Limit Orders or if they choose to trade for their own account. If they are trading for their own account, they must give investors their limit order price or the NBBO (National Best Bid or Offer) as defined by an Inter-dealer Quotation Systems (Pink Quote/OTC Bulletin Board) at that point in time. This rule is known as ‘Best Execution’ and is among the regulations discussed in Part 3 – Regulation.
- Trade Marketable Order Externally – If the broker-dealer cannot, or chooses not to, execute the trade internally, they must attempt to execute the trade with another broker-dealer. This often means accessing the security on Pink OTC’s OTC Dealer application and ascertaining whether the order is marketable. Marketable orders are orders where the price specified can immediately be executed in the market. Market Orders are, by definition, marketable. Limit Orders are marketable if the limit price is better than or equal to the bid price (for sell orders) or ask price (for buy orders). For example, a customer’s Limit Order to buy security XYZ for $30 will only be marketable if the offer/ask price is $30 or less. If the offer price is $30.01 then the limit order is not marketable and will not be executed. If the order is marketable, the broker-dealer may use the Pink Link system to send an order to a specific broker-dealer (or group of broker-dealers) or contact the broker-dealers by phone.
- Create/Edit Quote – If the order is not marketable, the broker-dealer may create or edit its existing quote on an Inter-dealer Quotation System (e.g. Pink Quote) to reflect a new price or size. The quote lets all other broker-dealers know the price which they are willing to buy or sell. Quotes do NOT have to mirror orders. Broker-dealers often do not want show the entire order to other broker-dealers because this information may cause the other broker-dealers to move their prices resulting in inferior or no execution. Broker-dealers are required by rule to provide their clients with Best Execution.
- Trade Non-Marketable Order Externally – Once broker-dealers have created or updated their quote, they may continue to monitor the market; if prices change (to satisfy the limit price) they may send an order to another broker-dealer. They may also receive a Pink Link order against their standing quote or for a different price/size. For example, another broker-dealer may have a marketable order. At that point the broker-dealer may accept, decline or counter (send a different price or size) the order. This is one of the main differences between OTC trading and listed security trading. There is no central system that matches/executes orders in the OTC – all trades are agreed upon directly between the broker-dealers. Pink OTC’s Pink Link system facilitates the speed at which trades are negotiated. Broker-dealers are liable for their quote price and size, and those firms that decline liable orders are subject to penalties from FINRA.
Firms may also negotiate trades over the phone. While the same process and rules apply, the speed with which trades are executed is inherently slower than Pink Link.
- Broker-Dealer Reports, Clears and Settles Trade – Once broker-dealers accept an order on Pink Link or over the phone, they must report, clear, and settle the trade. Part of this process is the confirmation of the trade with the investor; however, the trade will not be complete until final settlement (the delivery of funds by the buyer and securities by the seller), which, for equity securities is generally three business days after the trade date (T+3). While Pink OTC’s products and services facilitate the reporting, clearing, and settlement process by transmitting trade data to the broker-dealers, all three functions are the responsibility of the executing broker-dealers.
- Reporting – Broker-dealers are required to report their trades to FINRA within 90 seconds of the execution. This information is then disseminated by FINRA to the market. Pink OTC offers this ‘real-time’ trade data within a number of its products (OTC Dealer, OTC Quote.com, OTCIQ – Market Intelligence). The trade data on OTCMarkets.com is provided in real-time for Pink Link traders. All other trade information is on a 15 minute delayed basis.
- Clearing and Settlement – For OTC equity transactions, clearing and settling, the matching of trades and the movement of money and securities, is often handled by third-party firms for the broker-dealers.
This trading process example is very basic but it helps to explain how the OTC market efficiently trades in excess of $600 million on a daily basis.

VLCO a quick burst of buying pushed this stock to $.0239 this morning before closing the day at $.018. Its taking less volume to move this stock. If the buyers continue to surface VLCO should see $.03 - $.05 in the short term.
LKEN I know many have lost money on this stock as it continues to plunge, but at some point this stock will find a bottom and post a rally. Could it be right here at $.0011? Or is LKEN heading to $.0002 - $.0003 before mounting a rally. In either case its worth watching.
NEGS blasted higher on a late session press release. Look for it to gallop out of the gates tomorrow.
OTC Market structure is very similar to other equity security markets. A key difference, however, is in the actual trading process, which will be explained in Part 2 – Trading. The five participants in the OTC market include:
- Inter-dealer Quotation/Trading Systems (e.g., Pink OTC’s Pink Quote platform)
- Companies (Issuers) – Companies create and sell securities in the market to raise capital, complete an acquisition and/or allow selling shareholders to exit their investments.
Companies may issue and sell shares in the OTC market pursuant to the safe-harbor guidelines under SEC Rule 144 and 144A; however, new issuances among OTC companies is relatively rare.
In the OTC market, companies that qualify and are current in their financial disclosure may choose to list currently tradeable security(ies) on OTCQX. Companies may also choose to provide adequate disclosure either to regulators or Pink OTC Markets in order to be classified in a ‘Current’ OTC Market Tier.
Liquidity follows transparency. Companies that provide current disclosure either through a regulator or directly to Pink OTC Markets experience significantly greater levels of liquidity, improved price discovery, and more efficient trading.
- Investors – Investors in the OTC market vary in their knowledge and experience from large institutional money managers to retail investors. The goal of all of these investors is the same – to generate returns from their investment. Pink OTC facilitates information transparency in the OTC market by aggregating and disseminating real-time broker-dealer quote information and operating the platform for companies to provide financial and other corporate disclosure for investors.
All investors must execute their OTC securities transactions (buy and sell orders) through a FINRA-registered broker-dealer. Individual investors should check to see if their broker-dealer trades OTC securities. More information on trading is available in Part 2 – Trading.
- Broker-Dealers – Broker-dealers (such as E*Trade, Knight Equity Markets, UBS, Citigroup) participate in the OTC market by executing client orders and principal orders. Broker-dealers earn revenues from commissions charged on orders, the bid (buy) and ask (sell) spread (the difference between what an investor is willing to buy and sell a security), and principal trading (investing the firm’s capital in an investment/trading strategy).
Broker-dealers often receive buy and sell orders that ‘match’ – meaning, someone is willing to sell a security for the same price someone else is willing to buy the same security. In this situation, broker-dealers will execute the trade “internally”. This is preferable for broker-dealers because they receive commissions on both the buy and sell-side of the trade. In executing client orders, broker-dealers may also buy or sell for their own (principal) account, at their own risk. If, however, there is no match for a trade or a broker-dealer does not wish to trade for their own account then a broker-dealer must find another broker-dealer willing to trade that particular security.
Regardless of the broker-dealer’s decision regarding a customer order, they must comply with FINRA’s ‘Best Execution’ Rule 2320. ‘Best Execution’ and other customer protection rules are discussed in more detail in Part 3 – Regulation.
There is no central ‘exchange’ (e.g., NYSE) in the OTC market; therefore, broker-dealers must communicate and trade directly with other broker-dealers. In order to notify other broker-dealers that they are willing to trade a security at a particular price, broker-dealers post their ‘quotes’ on an Inter-dealer Quotation system such as Pink Quote or the OTC Bulletin Board. The aggregation and ranking of these quotes defines the ‘market’ for a security. The highest ‘bid’ (purchase price) and lowest ‘ask or offer’ (sale price) becomes the ‘inside market’ or NBBO – the National Best Bid and Offer.
If a broker-dealer decides to trade they can communicate with other broker-dealer(s) using Pink Link – Pink OTC’s electronic messaging and trade negotiation system – or they may contact the broker-dealer over the phone and negotiate the trade.
- Regulators – The OTC market and broker-dealers’ activities in the market are regulated by The Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA), the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and various state securities regulators. As well, companies with SEC-registered securities are regulated by the SEC. Pink OTC Markets is neither a stock exchange nor a self-regulatory organization (SRO) and is not regulated by either FINRA or the SEC.
Complaints regarding companies should be directed to the SEC, while complaints regarding broker-dealers or other investment professionals should be directed to FINRA. More information about specific OTC regulations is covered in Part 3 – Regulation.
- Inter-dealer Quotation/Trading Systems – Inter-dealer Quotation/Trading Systems allow broker-dealers to post and disseminate their ‘quotes’ (prices) to the market place and, in the case of Pink Link, negotiate trades at agreed-upon prices. The two major Inter-dealer Quotation Systems are:
- Pink Quote (operated by Pink OTC Markets)
- OTC Bulletin Board (operated by FINRA)
The OTC Bulletin Board (OTCBB) system, on the other hand, is a quotation only system, as it lacks the electronic messaging capabilities of Pink Link. Furthermore, only companies that are SEC-reporting (or bank/insurance reporting) are eligible for quotation on the OTCBB. Since these securities may also be quoted on Pink Quote, many BB eligible securities are ‘Dually-Quoted’ on both inter-dealer quotation systems. Currently, there are approximately 3,400 securities that are quoted on the OTCBB, of which approximately 3,370 are also quoted on Pink Quote. Currently, there are 28 securities that are quoted on the Bulletin Board only.
The significant majority of broker-dealers quote the securities of SEC-reporting companies on both systems because the OTCBB does not have electronic trading capability. Broker-dealers must use Pink OTC’s Pink Link system to trade these securities electronically.
Pink Quote and the OTCBB distribute their market data to broker-dealers, investment professionals, market data re-distributors, and financial websites, including OTCMarkets.com.
The real-time dissemination of quote information provides price transparency, which leads to a more efficient investment/trading process. The dissemination of price information and company financial data to the investment community (including individuals) leads to the development of new prices via trading decisions. This continuous flow of information between participants defines the OTC market and all market places.

STAU this stock closed near its session highs on some fairly nice volume. This stock continues its uptrend and I see it trading at $.002 and better next week. This is an incredi-stock. For those of you who haven't read it yet, here it is: http://pennystockgurus.blogspot.com/2010/10/stau-incredi-stock.html
VLCO yesterday's late day rally turned into a complete buying spree today. No share was left unturned as buyers surfaced to push this stock above $.02 before falling back a little at the end of the day. I expect this momentum to carry right on through to next week, where we could see $.03 - $.04 in rapid fashion.
SSWC the bid remained strong throughout the session as buyers started to pick up the $.0004's in anticipation of a rally. With the recent positive events I think it is only a matter of time before SSWC takes off and breaks out of its recent bottoming trend.
PRMO this is the cheapest gold stock in the entire stock market. This will be one of those stocks you wished you had bought when it was at $.0001/$.0002. You see it all the time, the regret of missing an opportunity when it was right there for you. Not many thought SRSR was a good buy at $.0003/$.0004 a few years back. That gold stock went on to hit over $.20 a share, and gold wasn't even trading at the record prices it is today. I think PRMO will be one of those stocks that people will be wishing they had bought.

SSWC issued news today that was well received by investors. They are making strides that should attract buying volume and should bolster SSWC shares.
At this stage I think the risk of any further downside is minimal when compared to the possiblility of big gains in the short term. I could see SSWC trading at $.001 - $.0014 within the next few trading sessions if buying volume picks up.
FLEMINGTON, NJ, Nov 18, 2010 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) -- Ken Glynn, President of SpeechSwitch, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: SSWC), today provided the following status report:

Also, the last three quarterlies -- 09' 1st quarter, 2nd quarter and 3rd quarter 10Qs are now being completed and will be forwarded for final review and filing. As soon as these are completed, the Company will be current and the caveat emptor is expected to be removed.

We have had more than a dozen inquiries and these interested parties await the opening of a company store to engage in serious negotiations. We believe that by the end of 2011, we will have at least 10 to 20 franchise stores in different phases of operation.
(4) WEBSITE. CEO Central's business development team is constructing a new website as a base for the company's product. Progress is being made and the new site is expected to be functional in three weeks.

A shipment of solar paneled, recharger designer pocketbooks as well as shoulder bags and backpacks will arrive within the next three weeks. Print Media advertising will be purchased to drive purchasers to the website to purchase for Christmas.
PRMO with a strong bid and steady it is only a matter of time for this stock. This is the cheapest gold stock out there. What better way to capitalize on the recent rise in gold?
SSWC today's news release brought buyers back and could lead to another rally in shares. SSWC is a stock to watch going forward.
TRDY a great chart for this stock. The rally continues and at this stage you would have to think it sees $.025 - $.03 or better tomorrow.

VLCO late day news helped get a bid under this stock. I really like this one and think it should be trading at much higher levels. Today's 20 million share retirement is a great step and shows the company's commitment to increasing shareholder value.
UWRL no i have not given up on this stock. I have written about UWRL seemingly 100 times over the last 4-5 months. Once that skull and bones gets removed at Pink Sheets I will have UWRL on my blog more frequently. Until then this stock is a great buy IF/WHEN the company gets its act together.
EPGL the press release came out later than expected and perhaps that is why there was selling today. Once investors digest today's excellent PR they will see the future EPGL has and the stock should be better bid tomorrow.
What the company has done today is increase everyone investors stake in the company.
I think investors will react positively to this news on Thursday and bid up the stock.

PRMO I received an email asking why I like this stock. I will give three reasons. First it is a gold stock and gold, even with the recent drop off, is still sitting near all-time highs. PRMO is the cheapest gold stock in the entire market. PRMO recently filed an amendment indicating the company is coming back to life. PRMO trades for $.0001/$.0002, a great price for those of you that want to take a gamble that PRMO will post a 500% - 1,000% gain from here.
VLCO this is a stock that has fallen on light volume. Considering what it has going for it, there is little doubt VLCO should be valued at a much higher price per share. At $.012 VLCO is undervalued personified.
STAU I really like this stock and I think it will post a significant gain from today's close. Significant? Some of you might be asking just how high I think this stock will go. I try not to put a price on these stocks, but I will tell you this. I could see STAU trading at $.002 - $.004 in the short term, meaning before the middle of December. Obviously if the company returns to their diluting ways, then the stock will not move. But right now STAU is looking real good.
HSCO just a beautiful few days with this stock. I could see more gains coming tomorrow. HSCO at the start of 2010 was a $2 stock. Currently trading at $.0033 there is a lot of room for upward movement.
I came across VLCO several weeks ago, as the stock was slowly selling off on light volume. The more research I did on the stock the more I liked it. Currently the stock is trading close to it's all time lows, and I think it is ready to turn the corner and post big gains in the future.
I see VLCO as an up and coming company, and recent developments show that they are indeed starting to grow revenue. The share structure is attractive for a $.012 stock and seeing how this was trading over $.10 only a few months back, there is a lot of room to go as far as upside gains are concerned.
Who is VLCO - Valcom?
I suggest you watch this video. It should give you a good idea about the company and its potential.
This is a summary right off the company web site:
ValCom offers several flexible studio configuration options. Our digital control rooms and studios are perfectly suited for music video productions, commercials, television programs, industrial and training productions, direct response, media and satellite tours, webcasting events and videoconferencing.

ValCom controls its destiny and profitability from start to finish by overseeing its entire Production pipeline through its film, music studios, motion pictures, Television distribution, and live theater.
VLCO also owns and operates their own television station myfamily.tv It reaches over 25 million households so far and growing.
Here is a brief synopsis of myfamilytv
Following the 100% acquisition of the Christian Television Network, Faith TV LLC on December 15 2008, ValCom began an immediate rebranding to “My Family TV”. The network which had been operating through 65 broadcast, IPTV and cable affiliates at the time of acquisition has now grown to over 88 affiliates. With a primary focus on family friendly programming, management has engaged a strategic plan of growth through quality programming, distribution through organic growth and acquisition leading to a strong foundation for sales. My Family TV is a strong family friendly network with a core established audience and broadcasts to over 50m households through its extensive affiliate network of full and part time affiliates. My Family TV is an emerging network created for American families.
With the acquisition of My Family TV, Valcom now has a library of over 1,000 films, over 200 episodic TV series and more than 500 individual TV one-off specials and documentary programs.
A major revenue stream for ValCom is network television. The vision of the company is to follow the path of ABC Family; a network that was purchased for $1.6 Billion and was later sold for $5.1 Billion. The first network being built by ValCom is My Family TV, which was acquired by the company in 2008.
ValCom has made significant changes to My Family TV that has increased the overall value of the network. Some of these changes include: New programming blocks of health and lifestyle, classic television, comedies, children’s and primetime entertainment and over 80 movies per month; Increasing carriage to include major growth markets such as: Charlotte, Dallas, Denver, Phoenix, San Francisco and Tampa. The implementation of an aggressive effort to secure cable and broadcast coverage in additional major markets will lead to improved ratings and increased revenues.
In less than one year ValCom has eliminated all debt from the acquisition and is operating My Family TV with almost no debt load. Short term plans include the acquisition and launching of new channels that will grow in value based on 4 factors: Programming, Distribution, Ad Sales and Low Operational Expenses. The company has positioned itself to be a U.S. market leader in live interactive televised auctions, traditional and innovative family programming, and sports, and will launch this successful formula to major international markets in 2010.
ValCom’s business includes television production for network and syndication programming, motion pictures, and real estate holdings. Revenue is primarily generated through the lease of the sound stages and production. Our past and present clients include Paramount Pictures, Don Belisarious Productions, Warner Brothers, Universal Studios, MGM, HBO, NBC, 20th Century Fox, Disney, CBS, Sony, Showtime, the USA Network, the Game Show Network, Endemol, BET Home Shopping Network and Sullivan Studios.
ValCom has a long history of TV and film production and continuously develops projects for productions and considers proposals for co-production. ValCom has developed and produced a number of live action series pilots and full length feature film projects such as PCH (Pacific Coast Highway) and the 40 episode TV series AJ’s Time Travelers. Valcom has been commissioned to produce pilots such as Truster for Fox, It also produces development pilots itself for pitching to networks such as the New York based sitcom Fuhgedabowit and Let’s Do It Again featuring Frankie Avalon. With its integrated studio operation, studio equipment and post production facility, ValCom has the opportunity to co- produce by way of the provision of services with the opportunity to defer costs and also to provide executive producer services to assist with development, planning, financing and distribution.
VLCO's revenue growth is on the rise and the stock should react accordingly. Volume is starting to pick up and it is only a matter of time before the price starts to follow. This will be a stock to watch going forward.

IGSM news out today was met with selling and the stock fell as low at $.0009 before closing a few ticks higher. With its attractive share structure and the prospect of positive company news, this could be a great spot to be opening or adding to a position.
PRMO I think this triple zero gold stock will surprise people in the near future. These can be the most lucrative trades in this market. The low price and potential for substantial gains draws interest from investors and traders alike.
BFHJ after a nice pop in the morning the rally fizzled in the afternoon and BFHJ investors were left with only a 10% gain on the session. The chart looks to be turning around and I wouldn't be surprised if people started getting back into this stock in anticipation of another 200-300% rally.
Friday, November 12, 2010
PRMO this gold stock has held strong the last few sessions and looks poised for a significant breakout. With every other high priced gold stock already posting big gains, this $.0002 stock is the cheapest active gold stock in the entire stock market. I think that will change soon.
MXGD this gold stock hit new highs on its rebound and looks ready to really break out come Monday.
EPGL has announced that it will be sharing some significant information and facts about its corporate business strategy for investors on November 17th, 2010. I could see the stock running up into this announcement, and depending on the announcement continuing to move higher.

STAU I really like this stock and think $.0002/$.0003 is a great range to be getting into this one. This stock could break out at any moment.
PRMO this remains the cheapest gold stock in the entire stock market. At some point investors will get into this stock and it will get the interest it deserves. Until that time comes, in my view, this is a great buying opportunity. Getting into a stock before the rest of the investment community is one of the best ways to profit in this market.
DGRI the chart still looks bullish to me. As long as DGRI holds current levels, this stock is heading higher.
A press release today after the market closed by Golden Valley Development, Inc. (OTC: GVDI), states that since June 2010 they have no longer owned the web site www.goldenvalleydevelopment.com. Apparently someone quickly scooped up the site and posted some promising comments on the main, and only, page. It reads:
Welcome to the new site for Golden Valley Development. We are very excited to start this new chapter of our company. We have undergone numerous changes in the last 2 years and are pleased to announce we are in the process of merging with a Real Estate Development company. The new company will continue to operate as Golden Valley Development. With over 20 million dollars invested into development projects, the new Golden Valley Development is a front runner in the Real Estate Development sector. More information will follow in the coming weeks.
In my view someone bought the site with the sole purpose of raising the price per share of GVDI by making it seem like the future was getting brighter. Right now the real company doesn't even have a web site. I don't know how good their business is doing, but they were concerned enough about recent share appreciation to issue a press release.
Whoever purchased the site and created it made it seem like there were $20 million in investments. On this news the stock has soared from sub $.002 to recently over $.06 a share. After today's press release by the real company, current holders of GVDI stock will be given a dose of reality tomorrow.
It's unfortunate when others lose money based on deception, but it is also a lesson to be learned for everyone. Penny Stocks are high risk trades and in this market almost everyone is out to make a quick buck. Do your own research before buying a stock. Never believe what anyone says, unless you can verify it yourself. And never, ever, invest money in this market that you cannot afford to lose.
Today's press release is below for your viewing pleasure:
Golden Valley Development, Inc. Clarifies Its Web Presence Business Wire "Press Releases - English "
BAKERSFIELD, Calif. --(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Golden Valley Development, Inc. (OTC: GVDI), a Bakersfield -based intermediary finder of fresh produce and live animals for farmers and ranchers, announces a clarification regarding its web presence.
Through approximately June 2010 , the Company had owned the domain name www.goldenvalleydevelopment.com. After four years of operating the website, and with none of its business operations generated through web traffic, the Company allowed the web address domain to lapse. That domain name was subsequently purchased by an unrelated party.
We have no association with this other Golden Valley Development firm which currently owns and operates the goldenvalleydevelopment.com website, and are not even aware of who its management are, and have been unable to contact them,? said the Companys president, Art Davis .
In addition, the Companys management has become concerned that others might be using this website to create the false impression that the website has some affiliation with the Company. To be clear, the website www.goldenvalleydevelopment.com has no connection or relationship with the Company. Due to concerns over the possible confusion between this website and the Company, management has decided to issue this press release to clarify the matter. Additionally, management for the Company attempted to contact those responsible for the current website, but was unable to do so because the website publishes no contact information.
The Company wishes to publicly clarify that it has no web presence at this time. There are no websites which have been authorized by the Company or are official in any capacity. Plans are in place to restore a web presence in the future, and at such time, a new press release will be issued.

HTLJ with the next quarterly filing only days away it appears investors are in a buying mood. I suspect it will be a good report and could move the stock higher. I still think this is a $2 - $3 stock down the road. At $.19 to say this stock is undervalued just doesn't do the term "undervalued" justice.
BFHJ news out today helped boost the stock. With the MACD turning, this stock could post a nice rally from current levels. There is, and has always been, a lot to like about this stock. I tend believe it can see $.005 or better before weeks, end.
TRDY was up again and could continue its winning ways tomorrow. With almost $800k in volume this is currently the hottest stock in the penny stock market. TRDY should gap out of the gate tomorrow.
ENFORCEMENT PROCEEDINGS - Commission Orders Hearings on Registration Suspension or Revocation Against Fourteen Companies for Failure to Make Required Periodic Filings

PRMO the stock saw some light buying throughout the session. The bid firmed and this stock looks to be setting up for a nice run. This is a company the should be ready to capitalize on Golds dramatic rise in value.
DKGR bounced off of its lows and mounted a mini-rally before losing bid support late in the session, With the recent reinstatement of this stock as well as positive comments posted on the new company blog, I don't think it will be long before this stock tests recent highs.
SMMT this has been one of the most impressive stocks over the last ten trading sessions. From no volume and a $.0002 price to record volume and a close today of $.007. If this one isn't on your watch list yet, now would be a good time to add it.
GGII I like this stock for a bounce from current prices. At $.0003 this stock could double or triple in a short period of time.
Monday, November 8, 2010
STAU it is only a matter of time before this "Incrdi"stock gets back on its feet This $.0003 stock should, in my view, post a 750%_ gain from today's close.
DGRI only two days into this run and I don't think its over yet. Tomorrow should see another gap at the open.
PCFG today's trading was healthy and necessary if this stock wants to take it to the next step.
PRMO closed trading today at $.0002 a share. I think it could see interest grow in the coming days and weeks. Last year PRMO's annual report showed assets of over $12 million. Currently PRMO's market cap is 1/6th that figure. If PRMO just wanted to realize fair market value it would have to post at least a 600% gain from today's close. And those are last years numbers. With Gold up over 60% from last year, PRMO's assets have likely grown considerably, meaning its shares are even more undervalued today then ever before.
Some may argue that PRMO has a very large share structure that will limit price gains and the the recent amendment will send this stock back to $.0001. My response is simply that I don't think the company would bother staying active and filing amendments if they did not see a price gain on the horizon. Actually the company is putting things together at precisely the right time. With Gold hitting a new high seemingly every trading session, what better time to utilize your millions in assets and restore shareholder value then right now?
I have always tried to find my readers and subscribers stocks that are poised for a big run. I think PRMO fits the bill for the next runner. There will be many that are surprised by this stock and many who have the opportunity to profit off this stock.
While everyone is out buying up the next Gold stock for $.02, $.05 $.20 a share, investors have missed a great opportunity that was right under their nose. I do not expect to see $.0002's last for very much longer. At the current prices PRMO offers an excellent risk/reward opportunity. The risk is that PRMO goes back to no bid, the reward is PRMO posts a 500 - 1,000% rally from here or even better.
Either way PRMO deserves watching in the days and weeks ahead.

AWYI has been consolidating nicely the last few sessions while relieving overbought conditions. The company recently reduced debt and the share structure is maxed out, meaning there are no shares available for dilution. This was a $.012 stock two years ago and if the interest comes back to this stock there is really no telling where it can go.
LOCN talk about a pretty chart. I think we could see another try at $.325 early this week. A break of that price would put the $1 mark into focus.
PCFG this Gold stock continues to follow the precious metal higher. With volume and price on the rise, I could see $.10 or better this week, especially if Gold continues its ascent.

HTLJ some interesting filings hit the wires today. The company has brought more assets in and looks to continue its growth. At some point traders will begin to see the value here. Until then, in my view, this is an amazing buying opportunity.
LOCN after going over $.30 LOCN pulled back. No sense going to fast, especially if you want price sustainability. I like the way this stock is trading and at this rate I would not be shocked to see LOCN at $.50 in the short term. After all, whats another 150% after a 10,000%+ run.
PCFG I nailed this stock at the start of the week. I stated: the recent consolidation phase looks to be nearing an end. While I am no chart Guru, the recent action appears to have formed a bull flag, which means more gains are likely. With gold back near all-time highs this is a stock to watch in 2010-11. With gold hitting news highs every day, this gold stock is following suit. I think it can see $.10 and better short term.
Wednesday, November 3, 2010
Late last year I called ZVTK's top, stating "Don't be the one holding the bag when the lights go out"
Since that point ZVTK has dropped like a stone. Anyone that held onto their shares from my call is down 90%. Don't say you weren't warned. While I try to bring my readers big potential gains, I also try to steer them away from those -90% money pits. Capital preservation in this market is a vital strategy.
SDIR rallied late in the session and I expect this momentum to carry through to Thursday's session. SDIR continues to work its way off recent lows and attempt to rally further. The company has some positive events this month, which should help draw more awareness to this stock.
SSWC this stock should get going again at some point. In anticipation of a run, these prices offer a great opportunity to capitalize on a rally to $.001 - $.002 in the short term. While there is a chance those prices won't come in the short term, we all know how quickly SSWC can run when it has the wind at its back.
UWRL I received a few emails recently about this stock. I know I don't write about it every day like I used to for over two months. The company is working on removing the skull and cross bones from Pink Sheets. Until that is done this stock is great to trade from $.0008-$.0012 range to $.0016 - $.002 area. I see this stock trading to $.006 and beyond when the company gets its act together.
A 15,000% Move In 5 Trading Days
LOCN's chart is the perfect explanation as to why people buy penny stocks. If you had purchased just $120 worth of LOCN at its low you could have sold just 5 days later for $18,000.
$100 into $18,000 in 5 days.
