I predict by September the stock market will be worth very little as currency slides to a fraction of what it is worth now, BUY STUFF,,,, gold, silver, land, especially farm land. even a new pickup truck will be very valuable. Paper investments will be a "bust"

I bulked up on NSPH and ONTY, two under $5 that I hope will bring a January surprise.  I am also long on pennystocks BSHF, LSTG, BIOM, because, at that price, what can I lose?

Some of these stocks are promising, but there's a warning sign to beware this article when we readers are given information like "Wet Seal most recently posted a 5.4% decline in same-store sales and an operating loss in its most-recent quarter...." and then are told the unbelieveable: "it's a turnaround."  It makes you wonder if the author has a clue.  A turnaround is a stock that's shown financial signs of a change to a positive direction.  A "potential turnaround" is one where recent management, strategic, or tactical changes indicate there's a good chance it will change to a positive financial situation.  Wet Seal is NEITHER of those things.

They missed the boat on SIRI. Time to buy was 2009 when it hit 7 cents a share. That's where the money was made.

My daughter did half her clothes shopping at wet seal for school this year.  I thought they sold bathing suits so maybe they are getting popular with the young folk.  If their pricing remains cheap I think they have a good chance in the market.  If they try to overcharge for their cheap clothes parents will buy them elsewhere.  Maybe if I invest $100 I can use the profits to buy her clothes next year, but if they don't make money she'll be shopping at Goodwill!
