Stock O'holics Investing University
IBOX UNDER CONSTRUCTION
Even if you read IHub only just a few times a week… then it is too late. You are already a Stock O'holic. You are already addicted to looking for that next stock that will have huge movement. Many investors like us here have already given in and admitted to being a Stock O'holic already.
The stocks mentioned here within the forum are basically penny stocks and are mainly high risk and as like most penny stocks, they are not on the levels of MSFT, QCOM, CSCO, etc. Please understand this before buying any penny stock regardless to how good the story, news, rumors, etc.
This forum is not the place for debate. If there is a stock that you have an issue with, then simply don't buy it. Antagonistic questions and comments that are deemed to incite aggravation, whether on purpose or not, will not be allowed. Take your issue up with the individual privately. Still, the Moderators discretion will rule for being the determining factor.
The primary objective of this forum is to educate investors about the penny stock world while providing stocks that provide a solid return on your investment or trade given the amount of risk. Still, everyone will be responsible for their own decisions to buy, sell, or hold. Stocks move for a variety of reasons and therefore, there are many different variables of knowledge that you should become familiar with to help you know and better understand the type of opportunity that a certain stock might present. Hopefully some of the following due diligence (DD) will get you started in the right direction.

Charts vs Fundamentals
Charts and Fundamentals should be used as tools for investing and/or trading. Charts (sometimes called Technical Analysis) tell us where we have been with a stock. They can also indicate potential or probable trend changes and direction based on a predetermined set of rules. However the past does not always predict the future or timelines. Fundamentals are used to accumulate based on information obtained from research and an understanding of the company's ability execute a business plan. This is where management plays the biggest role in maintaining integrity. I am sure there is much more that can be added, but below are some posts to read about:
Rumor vs Fact
Everyone should be mature enough to hear any rumors floating around, but on the same end everyone should be mature enough to not believe in them until after it happens. I think it's ok to rationalize on the logical deduction for how a rumor could be true, but a certain understanding must go along with that. Rumors existed before any of us began investing and they will still be around after we are done. I would treat all rumors as a grain of salt until it transforms into a real bowl of sugar. Still, it is fair for one to do their own research and make their own determination as to the value they will individually place on the rumor for being either true or potentially true.
About Dilution; Good Dilution vs Bad Dilution
The Difference between Pumping vs Bashing…
When you state that a stock is "going to the moon" or some other kind of positive statement without some kind of logical reasons explaining how such could happen, then it will be usually considered as pumping regardless of your true intentions. Also, the repetition of those thoughts stated depending on the variety of its delivery could classify such thoughts as pumping too.
On the contrary, when you state that a stock is "going down or tanking" or some other kind of negative statement without some kind of logical reasons explaining how such could happen, then it will be usually considered as bashing regardless of your true intentions. Also, the repetition of those thoughts stated depending on the variety of its delivery could classify such thoughts as bashing too.
These are thoughts chosen by the market to react in such a way and not I. I think everyone should able to understand these thoughts that posts on any message board.
A Patent is known as Intellectual Property (IP) and makes a company far more valuable should the company ever decide to be acquired by a larger company. In the short term a patent deny market access to any competitor who may have similar products, unless they license these patents from the owners of the patents, which then creates another revenue stream for a company.
Below are some links to use to further reference and verify the existence of patents:

TRADING TECHNICS BY MARKET MAKER MANIPULATORS.
Penny traders believe that Market Makers (MM) will "signal" moves in advance buy using small amounts of buys or sells as "signals". The "signals" are such a small amount of shares (worth no more than 5 or 10 dollars) that no trader would have paid a commission that costs more than the amount of shares bought. The "signals" are from one MM to another.
100 I need shares.
200 I need shares badly,but do not take the stock down.
300 Take the price down so I can load shares
400 Keep trading it sideways.
500 Gap the stock. This gap can be either up or down, depending on the direction of the 500 signal
IN SUBPENNIES ADD A ZERO OR AN UNUSAL TRADE
