It is difficult to understand the lack of brains in any news by NBC and MSNBC but especially when on the financial. In their socialistic attempt to convince the shrinking middle class to continue to buy as the big guys sell, it is almost immoral.  What is going to happen when the government ends buying bonds with taxpayers money in the stock market?  A crash as has occured because of the overspending by Big Brother Obama.  The fact America as a result of poor decisions, lack of job programs and job growth is standing on stilts just waiting for one big rush of wind power to fall on its head like Spain.  It is difficult to watch Fox news all the time but even a dem like myself likes to know what Benghazi means and all the cotten watchers being given 19 million in the farm bill.  Not only in the worst recession ever but no accountability, no balance of powers, just the new kings. Sad.

There are reasons stocks sell for less than $5, almost none of them good.

The chart patterns on most of these stocks are lower highs and lower lows.  Imation reported earnings of   -$9/share.  Losers, all of them.

Can't buy stock now. The numbers are fishy, you can't go from huge negative to positive overnight. Who's manipulating the market?

You don't buy stocks to hold onto them forever. Jump in Jump out (buy low sell high called day trade)

Think with your wallet not your mind. If your worried about losing the money you should not play.

They will temporary make money because the naive investor will  believe you and lose their money.

High risk indeed.  You will either go home a winner or a loser on these.  5%+ gains or losses all the time.

 

It really depends if you are willing to pay to play the game.  :/

Buy and hold the Dow 30 and reinvest the dividends. Always an exception like Kodak but few and far between.

I was looking at DHRM last fall ( it was around  2 bucks)  and followed it for a while. It would go up and down in regular intervals, a good pattern to make some money. Get in get out type of stock. It recently hit 12 bucks. Would have been a nice profit but I sat on my hands and lost out.

"Could" get rich returne.  Might get rich returns.  Should get rich returns.  May get rich returns.  Sounds like an "ask your doctor" ad.  This stuff might help you, may help you, could help you, should help you, but it will defintiely COST you!  And, if you have reactions, seek medical help immediately....but they never say "and send the bill to us."  Same here, It "could" get rtich returns, but it WILL cost you and if you lose your money,  come badk for tomorrow's offer.  It Might be better.

This is Gambling at best and not even smart gambling at that.

 

Do it the old fashion way - Buy only proven Large Cap Stocks with Iconic Products that pay Dividends and choose to automatically re-investment of the dividends in more stock.

 

And Hey - There is no charge for my advice so relax!

I know someone who lost his million dollar retirement in the 2008 stock market crash and he had to go back to work.

 

No one will ever convince me that gambling on the stock market is the way to go, I'm not willing to lose a dime of my hard earned money.
