PTLD - .41 hit as high as .55 sold their oil wells today and completed transformation into a profitable energy services company. Interesting deal on both ends. I've just started researching the other company, both could be winners.
PTLD latest info is that only 2.8 million shares o/s. So this represents an interesting play on a tiny float.
