Today's PUMPs & dumpS

Geopulse Explores Using Caveats
to Find Customers For Insider Stock!

A lot of ongoing Pumps & Dumps bring on new blood today into floundering campaigns in an effort to create some new interest.

Geopulse Explorations (GPLS) has added a couple of new touts to their month long Pump & Dump campaign.  This one has taken a 40% dive since the campaign began as insiders find few dupes willing to take on stock in a company that releases caveat filled news.  We warn about caveats in our article It's A Pump & Dump, which is required reading for all penny players.

Sometimes, caveats are found by reading in between the lines of news releases such as those disseminated by GPLS.  In their opening press release, they used the sentence, when referring to their acquisition of a purported copper property in the Lisbon Valley of San Juan County, Utah, the company makes the statement, "It was strategically purchased for its copper exploration potential." Here, the word potential is key and leaves an opening for the possible future, didn't pass due diligence, statement, much like the one massive PnD subject GGRI recently made about their Summer Property (which we prognosticated, by the way).  Now while the Lisbon Valley does have many signifcantly producing copper mines, we somehow have a feeling that this property won't be home to one of them. 

GPLS's most recent press release was also caveat filled, when they blasted the headline, "Financing Agreement for Up to $25 Million Signed by Geopulse Exploration", making it sound like it was a done deal.  However, by reading the press release in its entirety, one discovers that it is a "best efforts" agreement, rendering the announcement meaningless.

Always be wary when terms like "potential", "best efforts" and "pending due diligence" appear instead of words like, "proven", "deliverable" and "completed due diligence now proves".  Caveats are almost always the sign of lip service being paid to suckers buying insider stock.

OtcPicks.com has joined the growing list of touts trying to get somebody, anybody interested in failed Pump & Dump GreenCell (GCLL). The two week campaign of the less-than-sexy line of business being promoted has thus far attracted a total of less than 600,000 shares of volume representing a total value of under half a million dollars.  Somebody's not earning those not-so-hard earned dollars they're being paid to push this garbage.  Now OTCPicks is trying to stoke the fire with the ridiculous notion that this company with $4,000 in the bank and a market cap that already exceeds $25 million, is worth $1.40 per share.  Yeah, good luck with that.

HWI Global (HWIC) enters Week 4 on our watch list with two more touts trying to boost back the share price which has fallen a dismal 50% since the campaign began.  We're guessing that insiders would be happy to let go of stock at an additional 50% discount, if only they could find some takers for this snoozer, who claims to be a "leader" in clean room design engineering, amongst other things we don't understand.  We can say however, that penny companies are never a "leader" in anything but schemes and we'd be vary of any company using that word to promote itself.

Sideways Pump & Dump subject, Lone Star Gold (LSTG) has also brought on a couple of additional touts to help pimp the worthless stock the insiders are shedding themselves of.  LSTG is the perfect example of a sideways PnD, in which insiders are smart enough to sit on the offer and prevent investors from thinking that the stock is running away and too late to purchase.  In spite of having almost 5,000,000 shares traded since the pimping of the shares began three weeks ago, when the insiders owned almost every share, the stock has moved in a very tight range, classic of a sideways PnD.  As usual, and as was the case with HPGS, which we predicted would see bid whacking once the sideways PnD had run its course, this will also see insiders sell relentlessly, as soon as new investors run scarce.

In the meantime, FiberTower (FTWR) is the latest Nasdaq listed stock looking to raise funds and perhaps save their listing by boosting the share price through a new promotion.  It is almost always impossible to save the listing, which requires a price per share of at least $1.00, as evidenced by the recently failed campaigns of SAPX and HGSH. but insiders may sell stock to those who think they are getting Nasdaq listed stocks at a bargain.  You can trust us when we say that they are no bargain and you'll more than likely soon be owning Bulletin Board listed stocks.
