Today’s CGAQ press release brought significant volume to the stock, the question is….is the buying warranted? Was this press release bona-fide? Would you want to be holding shares of this stock going forward?
I’ll be quick to the point. No, maybe, and no.
The press release seems like a company orchestrated promotion. If you want investors to like your financials, then file 10q’s and 10k’s with the SEC. Don’t release a fluffy press release that is lacking substance.
With penny stocks it is all about following the herd and buying the hype. Just be sure you are selling the hype before the herd, or you will get trampled.
