Wet Seal is NOT a "turnaround."  Turnaround means it's begun to improve.  It's continuing to decline in sales.  It's a candidate to be a turnaround, but most such things don't surge ahead.

I believe your right about Star Scientific; this little unknown has 31 Million Shares Short right now and several catalyst coming in the coming months that you did not mention. First, the Thyroid Study being conducted with John Hopkins, release date Dec or Jan.  Second, the Alzheimer human clinical trials. The MS Study. all with the same supplement.  Also, what folks don't know is that a couple of their directors served as directors for the FDA and how drugs are developed and released.  Star Scientific's Anatabloc is slowly getting the press it deserves.  Thanks Mr. Reeves for finding this needle in a haystack stock.

See, this is the **** I am talking about. You can not have an equal playing field for the small money investor who basically are the poor and poor working class looking for a viable means to be wealthy somehow. If you buy cheap stocks there are major warnings and ultimate disappointments and it is virtually impossible to afford the higher priced shares and if the poor take the risk and lose the brokers still make their monies daily with no risk loss. Why are there not shares in the more profitable stocks that can be sold at a lower cost per share so all have a equal chance in obtaining wealth? Don't bother to tell me the answer. I already know why they are not available. I think it is a curse to be poor knowing the wealthier have the finances and the oppurtunies available at will
