Summer IPO Market | Penny Stocks

As many of our followers know, we often provide color on many upcoming offers in the IPO market. Today, we are going to alert you to five new offerings that are or will become extremely newsworthy in the near future.

Groupon (GRPN: NASDAQ) This web commerce company is slated to float $750 million in stock. Right now, the prospects for Groupon to trade at a premium remain stable, despite conflicting opinions on fundamentals. Goldman, Morgan Stanley and CS First Boston will act as the leads, so allocations should be very small for retail. The trade date is still undetermined, but we wouldn’t be surprised if the deal is consummated in the near future.

Toys R Us (TOYS: NASDAQ) This is a company that obviously has name recognition, and a great brand often helps aftermarket performance. However, TOYS is a private equity deal and similar selling shareholder deals have done poorly in the last year. At this point, TOYS has an all-star group of underwriters, who are expecting to raise $800 million. Keep in mind that at this point, many IPO services are only looking for a small premium on the open.

Dunkin Brands IPO (DNKN:NASDAQ) The company who owns Dunkin Doughnuts and Baskin Robbins is also a private equity deal, but DNKN seems to have a ton of interest, especially from retail investors. Dunkin Brands is looking to raise $400 million and by most accounts, the deal is expected to have a nice first-day pop. penny stocks news JP Morgan, Barclays, Morgan Stanley, BAC, and Goldman are at the top of the books and allocations will obviously be tight. Morgan and BAC might be the retail investors best shot at a small allocation.

Zynga IPO – This could be the most anticipated in the IPO market since Google because of a lot of revenues that Zynga generates. They also have a loyal user base and have developed addictive games like Farmville and Cityville. The relationship with Facebook remains a question with institutional investors, but probably won’t interfere with the IPO being oversubscribed at epic proportions.

Zillow- This web-based real estate information company is another in the IPO market with limited information. The stock symbol and trading date are yet to be determined, but it would surprise very few if Zillow traded before Labor Day. The offering will be small and Smith Barney will be acting as lead. Most feel Zillow will be extremely oversubscribed.

Pandora IPO | Penny Stocks

************************

***Pandora IPO UPDATE***

As most of you know, we have seen a slew of red hot, tech-related IPO‘s in the past few months. In the next few months, we could see even more, especially if companies like Groupon, Twitter and Facebook come to market. Facebook alone could rise the tide of the entire NASDAQ and provide some cover for lesser internet related IPO’s to suddenly become successful if the mania continues.

However, yesterday we were told a different story. The Oakland based internet radio company Pandora (P:NYSE) opened up at a large premium after being priced at $16. Now at the time of this entry, the shares have fallen below the IPO price, and that is generally not a good sign going forward. Chinese internet company Renren (RENN:NASDAQ) has recently been the latest example of a super hot IPO that’s fallen from high’s. Returns for some investors who have bought RenRen are similar to a penny stock trade gone. Shares of RENN are currently below $8.

Now the Pandora IPO might be in a similar situation since the stock price is below $16 for two reasons. Many traders will take a flier on quality IPO in the aftermarket when shares get close to the offering price. They then set tight stop orders, but once those stops are run, the trade often becomes broken for the short term, and the bloom is off the rose. Other investors who have a longer time horizon all of a sudden become bargain hunters and shy away from broken IPO’s until they become so cheap, that they are almost forced to buy them. In simpler terms, buyers are looking for a deal, this factor is magnified in uncertain markets like we are in presently. At this point it doesn’t look like Pandora is at bargain basement levels yet, especially with their valuation concerns. Remember that the shorts can’t get borrows yet, So being a hero at these levels might unwise.

pandora ipo Pandora IPOPandora IPO (P:NYSE) came public today and became the latest internet based company to launch a successful IPO. The internet sector has shown us two incredibly hot deals recently, Yandex (YNDX:NASDAQ) being one and LinkedIn IPO (LNKD:NASDAQ) being the other. Both YNDX and LNKD skyrocketed on the first day of trading, only to fall back in subsequent sessions. penny stocks at 52 week low Will Pandora lapse as well? Maybe and here is why.

Market conditions were much more favorable when YNDX and LNKD first traded. The current turmoil we are currently seeing in Europe could weigh on stocks and especially high beta names like Pandora. There are also the usual valuation concerns regarding this hot Pandora IPO. At today’s current share price, the Oakland based internet radio company. is trading at more than 20x sales.

How soon will the Pandora IPO become profitable?

Now on a growth basis, Pandora is very impressive. For the quarter ending in April, Pandora’s revenue grew to 51 million. Pandora also added 12 million new subscribers since January. However, figuring out how to monetize this growth is the million dollar question. During the same time period Pandora lost $9.1 million, and during an interview with CNBC today, CEO Joe Kennedy seemed somewhat vague, didn’t offer any guidance and wouldn’t predict when Pandora would become profitable.

With these facts in mind, a market reversal to the upside on Thursday could temporarily put Pandora, back in favor, but based on recent IPO trading trends, it’s probably safe to say that the shares could drift lower. Shares of Pandora were priced …

Renren IPO | Penny Stocks

renren ipo Renren IPOKu6 Media Co., Ltd (KUTV:NASDAQ). is as an online video company in China, and it owns and operates ku6.com. The site is basically a social media site that operates an online video portal. Even though shares of KUTV have run from the low $4 range to almost $8, on the anticipation of the Renren IPO (RENN:NASDAQ) they have the potential to run higher. Renren is another Chinese Internet company that is in the social media space. The company has over 30 million use and their site renren.com appears to be stuck. Users spend over 7 hours a month there. It sort of sounds like a poor man’s Facebook. But what’s wrong with that ?

Any individual who mildly follows the market nows that shares of RENN will trade next Wednesday. penny stocks a good investment Even though the deal has over 50 million shares most IPO experts feel a two to three point premium, or even more is likely. The market cap of Renren IPO will be rough $4million at it’s suggested offering price. Now how do you play this ? Especially since IPO shares of RENN will be few and far between for retail investors. Institutions might sell stocks like Sina Corp. (SINA:NASDAQ) or Youku (YOKU:NYSE) simply to diversify, or they may look at cheaper sympathy plays like KUTV.

Before I wrote this piece I scoured the internet looking for Chinese social media penny stocks to add to my list of stocks. Surprisingly I found nothing remotely close. However, that’s when I stumbled across KUTV. It closed on Wednesday with a market cap under $250 million, even after its recent massive gain.

By no means am I saying to jump out tomorrow and buy shares of KUTV in the pre-market Thursday morning, but you should definitely add it to your list of stocks. A lot of the easy money has been made already, but it could still pull back. This small-cap name fits nicely on a list, especially in between your large caps and penny stocks. I often write about sympathy plays in my frequently posted stocks to watch list, and KUTV seems to fit this description nicely.

Toys R Us IPO | Penny Stocks

Today’s piece is based on the Toys R Us IPO that is expected to price and trade sometime in the near future. In addition to our stocks to watch list and penny stock alerts, we want to give our readers and subscribers a brief background on the company and touch on the current perceived demand, and timing of the deal. Toys R Us is a well-known company and the offering could get decent coverage on cable news networks in the upcoming weeks. We just want to give you the heads up first.

toys r us ipo Toys R Us IPO2011 has been a big year for private equity-based IPO’s. Some like HCA Holdings (HCA:NYSE) did well, while others have faded. Toys R Us (TOYS:NYSE) was taken private by KKR, Bain and Vornado for $6.6 billion in 2005. Sometime in the near future, the Toys R Us IPO is expected to do $800 million. penny stocks weed This deal was rumored to come a little earlier in the year, but for some reason it never materialized. Despite the vast name recognition, and the perception of a turnaround in the business model, many IPO rating experts are only calling for a slight first-day premium, which surprised some, who expecting was Toys R US to have fast rising stock potential.

Maybe that rating is based on the street’s view balance sheet? I tend to agree with the experts about this one not being a screamer, despite the impressive lineup of underwriters being impressive with firms like Goldman Sachs at the top of the list. Still, add this one to your list of stocks. Oddly enough, at this point, Toys R Us IPO looks like a deal that brokerage firms will probably allocate to retail clients.And trust me, that’s not always a good thing. Here is one last tip, experienced IPO investors often shy away from private equity deals. Mainly because in reality, they are on the other side of a firm like Bain or KKR’s sell trade. To make it even more simple, you are buying their stock.

Check back frequently, as you can see, we are not some run of the mill penny stock news site. Look for more market news, stocks to watch, and alerts on some of the best penny stocks to buy.

Zynga IPO | Penny Stocks

***ZYNGA IPO UPDATE***

The Zynga IPO, as many of you already know, is already being talked about by some, as the most sought after IPO in the last few years. On a pure interest basis, comparisons are to be Google (GOOG:NYSE) are already being made. Especially with the recent demand for other tech related IPO’s.

As some of our followers know, we make an effort to highlight some high profile public offerings, and we give color on other lesser known investment banking deals as well, but the Zynga IPO is different, much different from other deals.

Recently, some of you have watched tech IPO’s like the LinkedIn IPO (LNKD:NASDAQ) and thePandora IPO (P:NYSE) have huge pops, but only fall back after institutions and IPO flippers came out of their allocations. The reason for the declines of the two stocks mentioned above is pretty simple. Their fundamentals don’t match the market caps for the short term. Short sellers know that even a booster shot buy recommendation from a brokerage firm can only do so much for a stock price. This is why many hedge funds short these deals when borrows become available.

Zynga’s IPO is unique though. Look at a company like Pandora, even the CEO can’t tell you when they are going to be profitable. With Zynga, it’s obviously different. Their presence on Facebook is huge and still growing. The revenues are also off the charts already and it’s not unreasonable for some to say that Zynga could eclipse the$1 billion marks in revs in the next couple of years.

Zynga’s user base is also extremely loyal even in the competitive gaming space. Games like Farmville, Cityville, and Frontierville keep users coming back. Zynga’s solid brand and management also has something to do with the present valuation talk being in the $20 billion range. Keep in mind that most experts felt Zynga was valued in the $10 billion range at the time of our initial Zynga IPO profile entry.

So get ready for the hype to begin as the deal is rumored to trade in the fall. Even though Zynga’s IPO offering will be larger than some of its recent tech predecessors, shares will be extremely limited for retail accounts. In other words, for a deal of it’s size, Zynga will be oversubscribed to epic proportions. So please don’t be disappointed or mad at your broker if you are shutout. do penny stocks ever make money?

Zynga IPO Gonna be Hot

zynga ipo Zynga IPOSan Francisco based social networking game developer Zynga is rumored to file for an IPO in the very near future.I has almost 250 million Facebook users and 4 of its most popular games are City Ville, FarmVille, FrontierVille and Zynga Poker. On Tuesday, Zynga just released it’s new game Empire and Allies. A move that some feel is geared towards creating, even more, interest in Zynga’s IPO stock offering.

In the past few months we have seen a slew of red hot IPO’s come to market, especially in the social networking space. LinkedIn IPO (LNKD:NASDAQ) was the latest, and despite the fact some are calling for a bubble in the space, it’s probably safe to say that the Zynga IPO will be heavily oversubscribed. Zynga already has roughly 250 million active Facebook users who frequent their games. The company has also been recently valued in the $10 billion range, and is rumored to have Morgan Stanley and Goldman Sachs in the running to be the lead underwriters.

Sunergy Reports Update on Operations on Its 150 sq. km. Ghana Mining Concession

Submitted by SmallCapVoice.com


SCOTTSDALE, AZ — (Marketwire) — 08/13/09 — Sunergy, Inc (the “Company”) (OTCBB: SNEY) reports the following update on the planning and preparation for operations on our 150 sq. km. Nyinahin mining concession, located in Ghana, West Africa. During Q’4 2009 we plan to test and evaluate the alluvial gold recovery potential along the Ofin River which runs through the eastern portion of the concession for about 45 km. We plan to do this by bulk sampling the numerous existing artisan pits along the river on our concession. Our planned budget is around $300,000.00 US which could recover an estimated 1,000 oz./gold generating around $900,000.00 of revenue from the program. Our plan involves either leasing a suitable gold recovery plant or joint venturing with another operator with suitable equipment. The permitting for the operation will commence shortly.


The Ofin River is an easterly-flowing waterway in Ghana. It flows through the Tano Ofin Reserve in Ghana’s Atwima District. The Ofin riverbed is 90 meters above mean sea level. The Ofin and the Pra rivers form the boundary between Ghana’s Asahanti and central regions. Dunkwa-on-Ofin is a major town on the river. Gold is mined from the river’s sediment. The Ofin tributaries also offer good gold and diamond recovery historically.


Karl Baum, Manager of West African Development, said, “Since this concession already has a full prospecting license, permitting is very straight forward and inexpensive. The artisan pits have no overburden and are considered high grade targets by the industry in Ghana. Many alluvial projects in Ghana have from 2-15 meters of overburden, so our excavation costs should be very economic. I am excited about the opportunity for early cash flow.”


Company President Joseph Guerrero said: “This cornerstone project offers both immediate gold recovery opportunities through the numerous abandoned Artisan pits along the Ofin River as well as substantial hard rock exploration in three large anomalies that warrant a vigorous exploration effort. Some larger mining Companies operating in the area have already expressed interest in evaluating the mineral potential on this concession and we are currently evaluating 2 immediate gold production acquisition opportunities to establish immediate cash flow and aggressively advance our shareholder value.”


About Sunergy: The Company is an aggressive junior mining exploration and development Company that is production oriented at the earliest possible profitable opportunity. We control 100% of the 150 SQ. Km. Nyinahin mining concession with a full prospecting license. The concession is surrounded by several operating mines and is adjacent to Newmont Mining’s property. This concession has the Ofin river flowing through our eastern portion and there are numerous artisan pits ready for testing and evaluation for near term production. The Ofin river is known for good alluvial gold production. Artisans usually recover about 30% of the available gold through primitive hand methods, leaving 60-70% to be recovered by modern mechanical operations.
