What about them? I am totally unfamiliar - have seen a lot advertised, is all....
Are they as good as they claim to be?
Do you subscribe to one?
Do you get tons of spam and pop-ups if you do?
Thanks in advance.
Mostly paid promoters running them.
Oh jeez, I thought this might be the deal... thanks for the info!
I signed up for around 2 to 3 to see which stocks will be promoted next, if I have already invested in it I'll just ride it for a little bit and jump out when it starts doing well, otherwise I'll avoid the investment all togeather for a few days .
I subscribe to quite a few newsletters actually. The best thing to do is see how long the advertising contract is (in the disclosure at the bottom of the email). If I see something like:
"******.com has been compensated by a third party Trinity International LLC fifteen thousand dollars for a one time news alert on KDKN."
Then I stay away because obviously, someone wants a quick pump to sell shares for a little higher profits. But when I see:
"******.com has been compensated by a third party Winning Media thirty five thousand dollars for a one month SPNG advertising services contract."
Then I do my research and consider "riding" the pump. Spongetech was, in fact, pumped up to .28/share, then dumped down to like .10/share. So if you did your DD, got in under .10/share when the pump started, then sold after a hefty return, it would've been a great deal. So I just keep them around because it wouldn't hurt. Just watch out for gappers if they put out their emails outside of the market session.
Thanks for this info, Smash! Do you post those "hot picks" on here? I hope so!
And can you please give me some input on the 10-1 Forward Split thread?
Thanks ever so much!
I subscribe to a few of them as well. It doesnt hurt to get a few emails from them and you can make a quick buck from a few of them if you know of to play their picks right ( as Smash mentioned above). I made an easy 4k with roundupthebulls.com's last pick. Just be careful and do additional research.
Need some advise from someone that knows the anwser. I subscribe to some of these newsletters also and make some money from them I could make a lot more but I can never buy the stock at open price?
For example; I recieve the stock newsletter @ 6:30am Monday morning the stock asking price is .04 so I put a buy in @ .04 but when 9:30am comes around my buy doesn't go through and the asking price increases. I see volume moving before 9:30am so someone is buying but not me.
Is there anything I can do to get an earlier buy or do I just live with what I get?
Thaks for your help.
You can buy pre market. Commissions are much higher, and its a guessing too, until level II's get active just before open.
Greenman thanks for the info, I use Zecco and Scottrade for my trades Scottrade is hard to buy pennies but I might try to use Zecco for a pre Market buy if they allow me?
How do you do a pre market buy, can it be done online or do I need to call?
I'm not familiar with Zecco. I use Lowtrades. I can place pre market or after market orders online. 1 hour before or 1 hour after.
