GRDO looks to have bottomed and has significant support at $.0022 today. I think this stock moves higher from here, and could move past recent highs, meaning there could be a nice 100%+ move on the horizon. This stock should be on your watchlist if it isn't already.
TLAN shares appear to be in short supply, as the company recently reduced its float by over 11 million shares. Recent financials show a growing company on the brink of profitability. I think it is only a matter of time before this stock starts becoming more representative of its true value, which according to a recent acquisition, was $.05 a share.
EFTI this shell stock is active at its Secretary of state meaning a relevant business entity could enter it at any time via reverse merger. the time to get into these potential reverse merger stocks is before the news hits the wires. It sure beats chasing them on the way up.
CTCC it appears no one is selling this stock down here and investors are awaiting the next company update. With an ambitious update from the new CEO, this stock is one to watch in 2011. The share float is unbelievably low for a stock trading at $.0159 a share. This was a $.46 last year, which shows the potential this stock has.

Let's face it, not every triple zero stock strikes it big for its shareholders. Some fall to the triple zero's and find a home there before eventually becoming dormant or reverse splitting. Other triple zero stocks can mount furious rallies, some that take the stock 1,000's of % higher.
Take, for instance, AWYI one of my triple zero alerts from last year. I alerted the stock with no bid and a price of $.0001 and it went on to surge some 2,300% higher from there. No one was buying that stock up until I alerted it. No one saw the potential I saw in it otherwise it would have been trading at a much higher price.
It takes a skill, knowledge and research to find the next triple stock that is ready to post a significant rally. While I have many triple zero stocks that I think have the potential to rally this year including PRMO, PRPM, MTIZ, STAU, I think TSNP right now, has the best chance at posting significant gains in the short term.
For one this stock has fallen from $.0028 and has yet to bounce. $.0028, the stocks most recent high is 1,400% from today's close, and could easily be hit if the pressure begins to build with this stock. In this market once the money starts coming into a stock it can move with reckless abandon.
TSNP just released it share structure to Pink Sheets on January 27th. It is a modest share structure and one that has not changed much the last few months. That means the company is not diluting, which is great news for shareholders.
This is the current share structure:
|Shares Outstanding||1,844,678,199||a/o Jan 27, 2011|
|Float||1,383,510,270||a/o Jan 27, 2011|
|Authorized Shares||5,000,000,000||a/o Dec 31, 2010|
You have to like the fact that the company is maintaining its obligations to its shareholders.
Finally the news flow continues for this stock. There is a lot going on for TSNP and the company has taken the time to update its shareholders with pertinent company activities. Today's press release is pasted below.
With TSNP the low float is a great quality about this stock. You want to be owning a large piece of the pie when buying into any company. TSNP's low float allows the chance to get a nice piece.
Recent company updates show that management has this company headed in the right direction. I think at some point the share price will follow. At $.0002 a share, TSNP is, in my view, a great investment opportunity. Sure these triple zero stocks can be risky, but they can also pay off handsomely down the road if you play them right.
Make Money on Hot Penny Stocks Without Becoming a Bagholder
Since fewer investors are interested in lower priced stocks for long term investment, they often trade with less volume than larger companies that are followed by analysts and are listed on major exchanges.
How Penny Stocks TradeThese stocks are likely to trade in a narrow range for large periods of time. Penny stocks almost never provide a dividend, so funds invested in them can be considered “dead money.”
Occasionally, if these stocks attract interest, they will “pop” that is, the price will jump by a large amount, at least large in comparison to the price. A 10 cent move in a one dollar stock may not seem like much, but it is 10%, which is comparable to a $10 move in a $100 stock.
Avoid Being a BagholderIt is not rare for a penny stock to double or triple in a short amount of time. The difficulty for a new investor to the stock is to know when a move is over. Penny stocks often double and then quickly return to their former price, or lower. Knowing when and how to sell a penny stock is important to maintain profits.
People who buy in late will see the stock drop, rather than continue to rise. These investors will be called bagholders by others. They are “left holding only the bag” while the fast money walks away with the profits.
What Creates a Hot Penny Stock?Since they have a low price and relatively low daily trading volume, many things can drive changes in penny stock prices:
- News – Any type of news can result in a change in price. If a company issues a new product, or a competitor enters the market. Quarterly financial statements: or other press releases can result in attention. News from the FDA on biotech companies can move a stock significantly.
- Rumors – Since volume is generally low, a well-placed rumor can move the stock price. Especially is the rumor is from a normally credible source. Penny stocks are subject to manipulation. Illegal manipulation is subject to punishment by SEC, but enforcement is difficult and may take years. The movie “Boiler Room” shows a fictional example of illegal manipulation.
When to Sell a Hot Penny Stock?There is no sure-fire method of identifying when a stock has hit a peak, but these are warning signs:
- Sell the news: Penny stocks that have run up in anticipation of a news event do often drop after the news becomes official.
- A spike in volume: Volume is heaviest during the run up, as traders buy and sell to take advantage of each small move with large trades. As volume declines, the price will fall slowly, but surely over several days. There may be brief moves up, as traders test for any opportunity.
- Newbies rush in: Watch message boards for signs that inexperienced traders have bought because of the price increase, who have no idea of company behind the stock. These novices are usually the last in, and become the bagholders.
Hot penny stocks can become cold very quickly, and investors that are not nimble can be stuck with a stock that is dropping in price and does not have a reason to resume an upward move. Knowing when to sell a penny stock is just as important as knowing when to buy.
Example of Limit Orders on Thinly Traded and Penny Stocks
This strategy is possibly acceptable when purchasing a stock that trades with high volume, such as one of the Dow 30 Index stocks. These trade millions of shares each day, and the individual investor will likely find that there are plenty of shares are available at the market price he intended to pay.
Using Limit Orders to Buy StocksAs opposed to market orders, limit orders place a cap on the price that an investor will pay for a stock. If the investor wishes to buy 100 shares of XYZ stock, he places a limit order of $10, and the broker will not pay more than $10 for each share of XYZ. If shares are available for less than $10, the broker will execute the order at that price.
Therefore, it is possible that the investor in this case will end up with, for example, 50 shares at $9.90 and $50 at $10, but an average price of $9.95. The broker will not buy shares at a price greater than the limit price of $10.
Setting a Limit Price Below the Market PriceBecause stock prices are volatile, that is, they fluctuate rapidly; limit orders are commonly used to attempt to get a lower price than the current price by creating a limit order at a price below the market price.
For example, if the market price is $20, a savvy trader may put a limit order in at $19, hoping that the price will drop to his limit price, saving a dollar per share. The risk is that the price will not drop to $19, and may increase, so that to purchase the shares he will have to pay more than $20.
Setting a Limit Price Above the Market Price for Penny StocksAn alternate strategy for penny stocks or stocks that do not trade much each day is to set a limit price higher than the current market price, especially if buying a large number of shares.
Penny stocks are low priced stocks, not necessarily worth a penny, but usually less than a dollar, and not more than $5. Because of the low price, traders can buy large blocks of shares, often more than are available at the market price.
In this example, the trader wants to buy 10,000 shares of ABC Company, and the current market price is $2 per share. Despite the low price, the stock trades infrequently, so there is no guarantee how many shares others are willing to sell at $2.
If he puts in a market order, he may find that he has purchased 1,000 shares at $2, another 1,000 at $2.10, and there are no more sellers until the price reaches $2.50. His broker will continue to raise the bid until all 10,000 are purchased. The average price for the 10,000 shares may end up being $2.40.
A smart trader will post a limit price of $2.10. This way he can be assured of paying no more than $2.10 for any of his shares. He may not get all the shares he wants at once, but he eliminates the possibility of cleaning out all the buyers and paying a much higher price. It is more likely that given time, some other sellers may step in and lower the selling price to the $2.10 level.
Using limit orders can prevent over paying for a stock, and smart traders will use all the options at their disposal in order to make the most money on a trade.

TLAN this stock looks ready to post a big move. While everyone seems content on buying diluting stocks with absolutely nothing going for them, when they inevitably drop like a rock they wonder why they are losing money. They follow the paid promo sites or some pump and dump artists. They neglect the quality stocks, the ones that aren't hell bent on dumping stock. A stock like TLAN is hard to come by these days. They aren't dumping shares in fact they have recently reduced their float by over 11 million. They reduced their float by 11.5 million shares but didn't press release this news as they are different the the rest of the peers. You have to admire that. When this stock is trading over $.01 people will be wishing they were listening to the Guru. I have always been on the forefront of big runs. I find the stocks before they run and TLAN will be no different. So you can continue to buy those diluting stocks. The money pits, or you can get into a high quality stock that isn't dumping stock. A company that is on the verge of profitability and continues to grow. The choice is yours.
CTCC the company should start updating the investment communtiy soon. This should help propel the stock much higher than today's $.017 close. Frankly this stock is quite the bargain at these levels. This was a $.046 stock when active, and it is about to become a lot more active very soon.
QASP I think we could see a nice rally out of this one short term. I am calling for $.0032 or a double from today's close. If we hit that then $.005 would be in the crosshairs. 25% of something is better than 0% of something and that 25% might be worth quite a bit more than people think.
We all know how this market works, or most of us do, and sometimes you just have to laugh when you read some of these press releases. Today's CCAA release ranks right up there with one of the fluffiest I have seen in quite some time.
To say there is a $1 TRILLION dollar demand for anything is quite a statement. To put what CCAA is stating into perspective, Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines, one of the biggest resorts on the sea has revenue of $8 billion. Carnival Cruise Lines has revenue of $14 billion. These are immensely popular vacation choices yet one would be hard pressed to characterize the demand for these to be anywhere close to what CCAA, a penny stock is claiming their underwater resort has. Carnival Cruise Lines and Roayal Cairbbean Cruise lines actually move through the water and head to different destinations. People get out at destinations and snorkel to see fish and underwater sites. Whose going to pay all this money to go no where?
It looks like a regular Cruise ship to me, except it doesn't go anywhere. So there are windows on this resort ship at its lowest floors, usually reserved for the service staff on a normal cruise ship. Those are the bowels of the resort. When people go on vacation they want to be in the warm sun, not the cold water. But hey maybe I'm wrong, looking at fish for a week or two could be pretty exciting. Maybe there is $1 TRILLION in demand for an underwater resort. Could it be that this endeavor is being penciled into the next stimulus package? The first underwater luxury resort could be donned the QE3. Its construction will create thousands of jobs and our very own Ben Bernacke will christen it the day it slides into the ocean. And it would be so fitting because like QE1 and QE2, QE3 isn't likely to do much of anything except line the pockets of those at the top.
It's fun to dream, especially when you supposedly have $1 trillion in demand.
I say why stop there! Make the thing fly too. Heck outfit it with some rockets and send it to the moon, mars, and the entire solar system. Now that would be something. And if they were able to do that I would be hard pressed to argue with them stating they have $1 trillion in demand for this resort.

NWTT the stock has retraced most of its recent gains and looks ready to renew its bullish momentum. I think this stock sees $.001 in the very short term. A visit to $.0003 could be possible before we see $.001. Either way I think this stock should see a nice rally into the weekend.
CTCC the stock remains in a tight range, and is poised to move higher. This stock was at $.46 last year and fell to its current levels. The company has since changed leadership and taken a bold step toward restoring shareholder value. I think the recent changes will result in a higher price per share going forward.
SKGO this stock has become revitalized the last few sessions and looks poised to move higher from here. Money volume is on the rise, and following the money is one of the best ways to make money in this market.

Many of you long time readers of my blog may recall my chart of KATX at about this time last year. In it I noted how it had started its third leg higher. KATX was at $.05 then and soared over $.20.I was spot on with my call. I am good at spotting these moves and think TLAN is in a similar position. A 400% gain or better looks to be in the cards for this stock.
Today TLAN continued its measured climb higher as investors greeted the company's first press release since October with some decent buying. I think it was great news for shareholders and showed the commitment TLAN has toward growth and becoming profitable. The stock closed the session at $.004 and looks well on its way to $.01 and better in the short term.
The company looks committed to increasing shareholder value and recently reduced the float by over 11 million shares. The chart is showing a stock that is right on the cusp of a significant price breakout. Volume is light but the stock continues to push higher meaning investors are buying and holding. TLAN's shares late last year were valued at $.05 in an acquisition. The stock also traded at that price less than a year ago.
The stock looks to be in its 3rd leg higher and I think we are at the stage where this stock wants to make its move. This move should take TLAN to $.01 and above and the real target to break is the 200 day moving average of $.0092. A break of that will be very bullish for this stock. It will also set up a possible golden cross.
I've brought countless winners to my blog the past couple years, and I don't think TLAN will be any different. Making money in this market can be as simple as buying a low float stock with tremendous potential and riding it for big gains. TLAN is that stock with big gains are on the horizon.
CTCC the accumulation is literally off the charts for this stock. At some point I think this stock will have a nice pop to the upside followed by a slow and sustained upward move. The company is in the midst of a turnaround and I expect the stock price to start to rise in anticipation. With this stock trading as high as $.46 in the last year, I think today's current price of $.019 represents a great opportunity for investors.
APCX with over 1 billion shares traded today and a 100% move this stock has popped up on the radar of many traders. If the volume continues there is not telling how high this stock will go. Remember this was a high flyer off its lows last year. History has a habit of repeating itself.
WTCT again new highs hit today. Just an amazing stock to watch, just when you think its dead, it comes back stronger than ever. Some real violent snap-backs and this tells me WTCT is still going to go higher from here. I expect a nice gap up at the open.
AVOP catching a falling knife is never a fun experience. AVOP fell today, rallied a little, then fell some more. I am curious to see when this selling will stop. A press release out today did little to break the grip gravity has on this enormous piece of lead. At this stage it could see $.0007-$.0008 before another meaningful and trade able bounce.
TLAN issued a press release this morning, its first since October. I think this shows the commitment the company has towards its growth. While I am curious to know who this major aviation company is mentioned in the press release, its nice to know TLAN is involved with such a company in the first place. Obviously there intent is to grow revenues, and with that profitability should come rather swiftly.
AUSTIN, TX, Jan 25, 2011 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) -- Hire International, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: TLAN) via its wholly owned subsidiary Soar Consulting, a leading provider of military and security transition recruiting announces the launch of its new outplacement services offering, named "Soar Transitions." This service is directed toward employers who are relocating facilities, downsizing, or making other major corporate changes in which their employees may be departing the employer in larger groups. The services, paid by the Employer, and delivered by Soar -- enable departing employees to hone and improve important job hunting, interviewing and resume writing skills which are critically important in this job market. The Company launched this offering with its first successful events for a major aviation company.
"The launch of Soar Transitions comes in advance of what we believe are some major initiatives that we are launching in 2011. Our outplacement services enable us to help employers and employees during a transition period for both, in a decidedly difficult job market," says Hire International SVP of Business Development Chris Beck. "We recently provided these services to a major aviation company, who while moving a facility wished to help those employees and their spouses who were not able to relocate. Our leaders provided a full complement of senior level advice and expertise to assist these individuals with reentry into the marketplace using both traditional means and non-traditional means such as leveraging social media to secure interviews."
The Company views this new business line as a viable opportunity to continue to grow revenues as many companies continue to streamline their talent acquisition and outplacement services. We believe that this displays how we continue to evolve our service offerings in response to our customer's commitment to their businesses and employees.

MTIZ a new release today seemed to get over looked. The stock was up on less than 1 million shares traded. I think interest will grow for MTIZ this year and that the stock is trading at a good risk/reward price. Sure it could go down to $.0005, $.0003, but I think at some point it goes to $.004 - $.005 or better.
WTCT I alerted this stock last year, after the company filed for a change of leadership. It was trading at $.0012 then, and as I have stated many times, change with penny stocks can be very lucrative for investors. While I was very early alerting this stock, and it has taken many months to finally move, the move itself has been a very profitable one. CTCC a stock I have started featuring has also filed a change in leadership, so if WTCT is any indication, you can see where CTCC is heading down the road. Last week I noted WTCT faced resistance at $.003. It broke that and I noted $.005 as resistance, today it closed at $.006, and if the trading day was extended an hour I think WTCT would have easily seen $.007. WTCT is in the midst of a run that could bring it to $.01 and beyond if it can break that magical number.
TLAN I know I sound like a broken record with this stock, but my instincts are telling me this stock will be trading over $.01 in the short term. This is a company that is expanding and is right on the cusp of profitability. The float has been reduced by over 11 million shares. The chart is showing we are at the start of the next leg higher. I think TLAN will test and break its recent high of $.0058 in the coming days.
CSCE, this stock jumped over 300% today to close at $.0112. This stock was alerted in the pennystockguru subscriber chat room at $.0027 by merger when the stock had only one 20,000 share trade. It ended the day trading 23 million shares. It closed right near the high of the day and I would not be surprised to see this stock gallop out of the gates when the market opens for trade tomorrow.

Gold Penny Stocks Could Benefit From Gold’s Continued Rise
2010 was quite a volatile year in the foreign exchange market. In fact, the last three years have been littered with financial catastrophe after financial catastrophe. Of course, it all started during late 2007 and early 2008 with “concerns” in the Sub-Prime Mortgage Industry. But, in the spring of ’08, it seemed that all was well when Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke made the financial prediction that Sub-Prime concerns were contained and it would not have much of a spill-over effect in the wider economy.
A few months later in the fall of 2008, our modern global economy nearly collapsed with the failure of Lehman Brothers, Bear Stearns, Freddie and Fannie Mac, and a host of other large financial institutions that were overly exposed to the Sub-Prime market. After finding some footing of economic recovery in the first 3 quarters of 2009, the global economy was dealt another major blow in November 2009 when it became evident that Greece was about to suffer sovereign default. Greece was formally bailed out in May 2010, but then just a few months later in the fall of 2010, Ireland suffered the same fate and was forced to receive emergency funding from the ECB to prevent a collapse in its banking sector.
Currently, it looks like Portugal, Belgium, and Spain are all headed for the same fate as Ireland and Greece. This incredible uncertainty in the global economy has continued put pressure on risk assets as investors seek to hedge against further deterioration in the global economy. At the same time, gold prices have continued to rise to fresh all-time HI’s.
If an investor believes that gold is going to rise in price, there are several avenues of investment. First, an investor can buy physical gold. Or he could but gold mining stocks and equity in other companies that are heavily dependent on the price of gold. However, one of the most aggressive things an investor can do is to look for companies that are involved in gold mining, production, or distribution that are currently trading for just pennies.
These gold penny stocks have an incredible potential for explosive growth, but they also carry substantial risk of loss. If gold does continue to rise in 2011, then gold penny stocks may be an investment vehicle worth considering. One way to invest in gold penny stocks is to conduct market research and find junior mining companies. Junior mining companies are companies that target specific areas where they believe large mineral deposits exist. If these companies strike gold and discover areas that do have gold deposits, the stock value of these companies can rise dramatically in a very short amount of time. If the U.S. dollar is falling in value at the same time in fx trading, then even more upward pressure could be put on gold prices in general.
Great Basin Gold Limited – a Canadian junior mining company that has seen strong growth in 2010. The company is well capitalized and has several projects underway that could lead to aggressive growth in 2011. Currently, GBS shares are selling for around $2.50, up from a low in 2009 of $0.77. Price is still off its all-time HI of $3.77, but it could retest those HI’s in 2011, which would be a 50% increase on the year.
Brigus Gold – a junior mining company that has projects in Ontario, Saskatchewan, Mexico and the Dominican Republic. Brigus is currently trading at $1.65, well off its 52-week HI of $2.25. Brigus is set for potentially explosive growth due to its aggressive mining operations in Canada and South America.
These are only two of hundreds of gold penny stocks that are trading for a few dollars or less per share. The world of penny stocks is incredibly risky, but the potential for large returns is what draws investors. Always seek professional advice before engaging in any investment.

This stock has done almost nothing but go down since mid-September. Today it bounced in a big way and looks to continue its upward trajectory on Monday. Finding a bottom can be a great way to profit in this market. For CCTR and its shareholders it been over 4 months, but for those who timed it right it was well worth the wait.
Thursday, January 20, 2011
CTCC this stock looks ready to regain its footing in 2011. This stock has traded as high as $.46 in the last 52 weeks, and a recent leadership chance could incite a significant rally from todays $.0219 close. This is a stock to watch in the coming weeks and months.
TLAN volume is slowly starting to pick up and I think we'll see some positive momentum heading into the weekend. The company has already shown its willingness to grow both organically and through acquisitions. If the current trends continue I think TLAN could be firmly in the black in the near future.
EXTO this stock has been on a nice uptrend and could be ready to breakout. I would not be surprised to see this stock trade back to $.01 or better in the short term.
PRPM the company has aggressive plans for 2011 including a 400 million share buyback. That amounts to 20% of the authorized shares and should have a significant affect on the company's share price. At $.0002 a share I think this stock offers a great risk/reward investment. With a sustained rally I think PRPM could easily see $.001 or better from here. Of course these triple zero stocks always carry tremendous risk, but don't they all.
After alerting my subscribers and free email members about EXTO at $.0004 the stock has gone on to post a slow and deliberate rally. The stock has now gained over 1,100% since I first brought it to my members and my blog.
This is one of my blog entries from last year: for those of you who follow this blog, you know how much I like EXTO. I brought this stock to your attention at $.0005. Today it closed at $.0015, with $.0016 trades going through after hours. EXTO could see $.002 and beyond tomorrow. The Guru, once again, brings you a winner.
In a penny stock world full of stocks that go up and crash down in the span of minutes or hours, its refreshing to see a stock slowly ascend from the triple digits and bring profits to those who wait. A $400 purchase at $.0004 would be worth $4,500 as of today's close, now that's something worth waiting for.
Over the last 52 weeks shareholders of City Capital Corp. have endured a bumpy ride. The stock has traded as high as $.46 and recently briefly dropped below $.01. Currently the stock trades for $.0219 and judging from some changes being implemented by the new CEO, this stock could start to recover its share price.
In October of 2010 CTCC experienced a change at the top and welcomed in a brand new CEO. Mr. Smuda is an expert in restructuring companies back to profitability, and looks ready for the task of bringing value back to CTCC and its shareholders. CTCC is trading right near its all-time lows indicating the market is not aware of the positive change that lies on City Capital Corps horizon.
Unlike its big board brethren, change for penny stocks is usually viewed in a positive light. Stable big board stocks tend to fall when their CEO's step down or are removed. Hewlett Packard saw its stock drop almost 20% after its CEO left. Apple's founder and CEO stepped down the other day and its stock is down almost 7% since. However penny stocks thrive on change. Stocks that have fallen dramatically can become reinvigorated when the company announces it is taking another direction, decides to change CEO's, or merges with another company. These stocks benefit from change because investors see a new opportunity. What if that merger finally brings money into this company? What if the acquisition makes this company profitable? What if this new CEO can really turn this ship around? While change with well established, long standing companies can be viewed in a negative light, change with a penny stock can present a very lucrative investment opportunity.
CTCC's new CEO recently wrote a shareholder letter which is posted on the company web site. It details the future of the company and makes me believe that CTCC's best days lie ahead. Here it is in its entirety:
The Board of Directors of City Capital, Corp. would like to share some exciting developments with its shareholders and the marketplace.
During the latter part of calendar year 2010, City Capital, Corp. began an aggressive analysis of all areas of its business, with a sharp eye on cost reduction, in an attempt to better position the Company for the future. During the initial analysis, it was determined that there were a number of inefficiencies within several subsidiaries, as well as several areas of duplicate services in the corporate and administrative departments of the Company. It was also discovered that the Companys acquisition efforts could be better targeted in order to generate a more profitable mix of sales.
City Capital, Corp. has recently begun a partner program with several key consultants throughout the nation. This program will enable City Capital, Corp. to focus on more efficiently managing the companys subsidiaries. The Company will be able to streamline operations, more adequately control costs, maintain a strict timeline, keep attention to detail, and develop a high quality team of professionals to effectively manage and grow City Capital, Corp.
Corporate overhead has been dramatically altered. Duplicate services have been eliminated and payroll reduced. Rent and utilities expenses have been changed to significantly lower rates. Additional, the company has reduced debt, and continues with an aggressive debt reduction program. Finally, corporate books and records are being updated, and quarterly financial results will be reported on a timely basis. Efficiency in each component of the company has become a priority as a constant vigil is kept on improving margins, and expanding operational cash flow.
City Capital, Corp. will soon launch a new business development campaign. This new approach will focus on extensive use of the internet to broaden the global awareness of City Capital, Corp. subsidiaries, and expose them to more potential customers. This will be coupled with selective print media advertising in specific trade periodicals to further present the high standards of quality represented in a City Capital, Corp. The Company will also primarily target three specific areas in its acquisition strategy: companies with proven assets, positive cash flow, and proven management.
City Capital, Corp. has put together a comprehensive business plan that will enable the company to build on its past successes. The Board of Directors has recognized areas of inefficiency within the company and begun to implement a plan of correction. Potential investors and shareholders will be able to view a new and improved, easy to navigate web site. The site will adequately display the company information in a concise, accurate, and timely manner. The company will constantly seek to deliver the highest level of service to our customers. By leveraging our existing customer base, City Capital, Corp. will attempt to capitalize on cross-selling activities to increase its operating efficiency and margins. Non-profitable segments will be sold or unwound. City Capital, Corp. will continue to focus on delivering a positive return on investment to its shareholders.
With these key areas of focus, City Capital, Corp. believes that it has taken the necessary steps to establish a more efficient, organized, and targeted Company. Currently, there is a strong sense of responsibility to the company shareholders as we embark on a new business development and acquisition campaign. City Capital, Corp. will focus on forming strategic alliances with business partners throughout the country, and the assimilation of specifically targeted profitable acquisition candidates. City Capital, Corp. management is extremely excited about the future prospects of the company while these changes begin to positively impact performance as it progresses through 2011 and beyond.
Here is a nice description of CTCC's new CEO:
Mr. Smuda is an expert in restructuring companies to profitability. He possesses over 25 years experience as a procurement specialist accomplished in the disciplines of materials management, inventory management, systems development and process improvements. He has held senior management positions in the domestic and international supply chain sectors, including retail, industrial distribution, manufacturing, design-build custom engineering and mail order. Mr. Smuda has developed two Free Trade Zones and numerous Bonded warehouses throughout North America to facilitate time efficiencies and product cost reductions in managing a global supply chain. For the past five years Mr. Smuda has served as president, and served on the Board of Directors of several public companies.
CTCC has a great share structure with a low tradeable float. I think if the company starts following through on its plans, this stock will start to gain interest. With the low amount of shares in circulation this stock could revisit recent highs. At this stage, with the new CEO, and the new direction of the company, this stock, in my opinion, should be trading higher than it is today. If the company comes through for its shareholders and Mr. Smuda can bring CTCC to profitability this stock should at least recover 50 of its recent decline from $.46.
No matter how you slice it, CTCC appears to be turning things around and that should be reflected in its share price going forward. This should be a stock to watch for quite some time.

GOHG this stock looks to have bottomed today and has begun to rally. I think we could see a quick 50-100% gain tomorrow, and possibly more into weeks end.
WTCT what a rally mid-day, and it just didn't stop all the way into the close. I mentioned yesterday that $.003 would be the next point of resistance. I think we could gap right over that price at the open tomorrow. That would bring the big $.005 into focus.
TLAN although volume has been light, this stock has held its ground and I couldn't feel better about the way its trading right now. Sure I'd like to see it at $.01 already, but good things take time to develop, and with TLAN I think its will be worth the wait. Remember these shares are valued at $.05 for the purposes of a recent transaction. Also the float has been reduced by over 11 million shares and the company is on the cusp of profitability. I think the current prices offer an excellent buying opportunity.
RTGV today's press release and after hours filing were both good news in my book. Kudos to this company for putting value back into this stock and building what appears to be a nice growth story. In the span of 3 months assets went from $0 to over $2 million, revenue from $0 to almost $500k. For $.0131 a share this stock, in my book, is trading well below where it should be valued.
A great rebound thus far. At this stage it is difficult to determine just how much SSOL has left in the tank. I think there is a good chance it tests today's high before the end of the week. The question will be if it can break through that point.
AVOP closed down almost 90% today hitting a low of $.0023 before surging a few ticks above $.007, the stock closed at $.0049. While I don't want to focus on the countless 500k blocks that came in after the close at $.0024, it is something to note. These trades are settlement trades, and with a record breaking share and money volume day, you would expect to see something like this after the close.
Think about it for a second. AVOP's record volume day before today was 3.8 million shares traded. Yesterday AVOP had ZERO trades and not one single share traded hands in the market. Today AVOP had almost 1,000 trades with over 232 million shares trading hands.
What triggered the massive spike in volume? A dump and run. We've seen a lot of them the last 6-12 months. The stock was already in a tailspin from $.26 on light volume, when suddenly a pile of shares hit the market driving the price down. Traders see the stock drop and attempt to catch the falling knife, knowing that a successful catch could net them a quick 100-200% gain. The risk is that the stock will never bounce, however that was not the case here. AVOP rallied from the morning plummet and peaked its head over $.007 before closing at $.0049.
Anyone buying shares in the morning where able to profit. I think we could see more gains tomorrow as the record volume should attract some more bottom feeders.
While I am not fond of this type of stock, if you are a trader in this market you always have to be on the look out for the dump and run. It can be a very profitable (albeit risky) trade.

WTCT it was nice to see this stock finally get its legs today. The next meaningful point of resistance lies at $.003. We could see that as soon as tomorrow.
RTGV I am keeping a close eye on this stock this week. Volume is starting to pick up and I think there is a good chance this stock sees $.003 or better before the close of trade on Friday.
TSNP this remains a great low triple zero stock, one that could post a nice gain in the near future. GTLL showed just how quickly money can be made with these stocks. The key is to get in before the blockbuster news release hits the wires. That's why you read this blog and why I think TSNP could very well be that next big triple zero stock.

TTDZ an impressive day from this stock and at this stage we have to start thinking about just how high this stock will go. It bears watching tomorrow and into the long holiday weekend.
NWTT is starting to head higher on modest volume. We know how this stock can run once it gets some momentum behind it. This stock appears to be back in play.
CIST I think we could see a nice breakout heading into the MLK holiday weekend.
After hitting highs not seen since early last year, TLAN has pulled back creating an excellent opportunity for investors to get back into the stock, or buy it for the first time. The stock fell toward the end of the session today, but was able to muster a green close on some light buying.
Looking at the chart TLAN is showing a bullish hammer reversal pattern.
The Bullish Hammer Pattern is a significant candlestick that occurs at the bottom of a trend or during a downtrend and it is called a hammer since it is hammering out a bottom. The Bullish Hammer Pattern is a single candlestick pattern and it has a strong similarity to the Bullish Dragonfly Doji Pattern. In the case of Bullish Dragonfly Doji Pattern, the opening and closing prices are identical whereas the Bullish Hammer Pattern has a small real body at the upper end of the trading range. (SOURCE)
I think this bodes well for this stock going forward. Today we tried to test support, and ended up getting some decent momentum into the close. It's also become clear that there are not many willing to part with their shares, and that today's volume was mostly market maker AUTO, who continues to test the bid as well as the mettle of TLAN's investors. With a close 2 ticks into the green, it certainly is a good start.
TLAN's float was recently reduced by over 11.5 million shares. For a stock that only trades a few million shares a day, this is a big figure. In the company's latest quarterly report they showed a loss of only $15k on revenue well over $1,000,000. I think they will report a profitable quarter very soon.
TLAN shares were recently valued at $.05 for an acquisition, which shows just how undervalued the company's shares are.
I think we will see the resumption of the uptrend and a test and break of recent highs. I suggest you keep TLAN on your watch list for the foreseeable future.

GTLL at least one of my subscribers were able to get in at $.0001 this morning when the press release hit. From that point forward it was a difficult call, trying to figure out just how high GTLL was going to go. It is a very important day for GTLL tomorrow. If it drops out of the gate, then this stock could be bidless again within a week or so. If the stock gaps and holds its gains we could see $.003 or better by weeks end. Its funny how this market works, it can be feast or famine. Let's hope GTLL investors are well fed tomorrow.
PRMO gold and commodities continue to be strong. PRMO is vastly undervalued considering its assets and profit. I expect this stock to mount a substantial rally at some point in the short term.
ZLUS I think ZLUS makes a run for its recent highs before the week ends. This stock bears watching and should make a great trade.t
A press release (pasted below the chart) came out early in the session and the shares rallied 2,100% in the span of a few hours. The stock ended the day only 1,300% higher on over $1 million in trading volume.
This news hit the wires back in early December, but fell on deaf ears. Today investors were willing to buy on the news and made this the biggest gainer in the market today.

TLAN it was nice to see the bulls get behind this stock today. The recent pull-back provided a great opportunity to get into this stock and now it looks ready to resume its climb. Remember the company has reduced the float, so there is less shares available for trade, meaning if the demand rises for shares, the reduced supply will lead to a sharper rise in price. Late last year TLAN shares were valued at $.05 for an acquisition. With the company on the cusp of profitability I think shares are vastly undervalued.
CIST this stock looks to be working its way higher after a dramatic fall in price from $.05. It could see a nice rally from here. Just looking at the chart $.005 would be the next logical target for this $.0018 stock.
GWTR it was nice to see this stock hold most of its gains today. This stock has had virtually the same share structure over the last 3 years. That tells me that whatever dilution they have planned has already been done and that the share count is likely maxed out. I think with just modest buying pressure this is a stock that could see $.003 and better in short order. Also today's patent news added some dry logs to the fire. Add GWTR to your watchlist if it isnt already there.
ACTT the chart is looking great for this stock. It recently posted some merger filings on its Secretary of State and could be coming more active in the investment community. This one bears watching going forward.

Rapper 50 Cent made $8.7 million yesterday -- by tweeting.
The 35-year-old celeb, aka Curtis Jackson, helped pop the shares of a no-name penny stock company he's invested in by 290 percent yesterday after chatting it up this weekend on Twitter, the social-networking site.
"You can double your money right now. Just get what you can afford," Jackson tweeted about H&H Imports, a money-losing venture out of Clearwater, Fla., that owns TV Goods, a marketing firm recently founded by Kevin Harrington.
Harrington is best known for his role on ABC's reality show "Shark Tank," which lets entrepreneurs pitch their ideas to potential backers.
"They are no joke get in now," Jackson told his 3.8 million Twitter followers about TV Goods, which Harrington founded in 2009. It merged with H&H in May.
Jackson received 30 million shares of H&H in a private placement last October, including a series of warrants granting him the opportunity to cash in as the stock rises: at 15 cents, 25 cents or -- no kidding -- 50 cents.
For some of the warrants, he only has to put up 10 cents a share, according to a recent regulatory filing.
Earlier this month, Jackson also "personally endorsed" a line of mobile audio products TV Goods had gained marketing rights to that are made by another Florida company, Sleek Audio, H&H said. Jackson talked up the headphones when he appeared on TV last week from the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.
Jackson's reps didn't return a request for comment.
Of course, Jackson's hype won't fix the cash-flow problems at H&H. The company lost $1.3 million last quarter on revenues of just $292,933. As of Sept. 30, the company has accumulated a deficit of $3.3 million and in March its auditor raised questions about its ability "to continue as a going concern," the company has said in financial documents.
H&H closed at 39 cents yesterday, up 29 cents, boosting Jackson's 30 million-share stake by $8.7 million.
