Penny Stocks to Buy Guidelines

By Gerald Greene

March 2, 2013

Penny stocks to buy and research are commonly defined as stocks that trade from one cent up to five dollars per share. Companies in this price range are usually based on a single idea or a lone product. If the product or concept fails so does the company. Penny stocks are exciting to trade but involve a high level of risk.

Penny Stocks to Buy Have Limited Financial Assets


Tangible assets will be limited – often under $5 million, even less if the firm has only been in business a couple of years. Annual revenues, if there are any, will also be small, probably $5 million or less. Often ongoing operations are financed by a series of private placements. This is especially true with natural resource exploratory and development companies, such as junior gold and silver mining companies, and bio technology companies involved in a long series of research and clinical trials prior to approval by the FDA and other agencies to bring new products to market.

Because of financial weaknesses and the need to fund operations by a series of private placements and venture fund funding typical methods of fundamental analysis used with larger firms are often meaningless, requiring potential investors to look far beyond earnings-per-share. Many penny stocks to buy will have losses rather than earnings or earnings will be miniscule.

J. David Stewart, who prior to his death managed one of the country’s most successful small stock advisory services, the Stewart Report – Growth Stock Investing Research, suggested looking at the following list of factors before making a decision on penny stocks to buy.

Penny Stocks to Buy Factors to Consider

Appeal of product or service – Would you personally buy what the company is selling or see a need for it in your future.

Commitment of management – Stewart never recommended a company without interviewing its CEO and other top officers. While you can’t do this, it’s fairly easy to find out if the founder is still actively involved in running the company and promoting its product or service.

A good business model – If the founder is an inventor or “idea man,” has he been smart enough to bring on a quality business manager or financial officer to ensure the company is properly structured and run according to sound business principles.
Effective marketing – A great product is worthless if it’s not being sold well.

A positive return on equity (ROE) – This is the one fundamental measure that’s of value. It’s determined by dividing net income by shareholder equity and a positive return, no matter how small, is a sign of quality in revenues, indicating the company is on its way to profitability.

Insider buying – You don’t want to buy a stock if the people managing the company don’t own it too.

A steady rise in price and trading volume, even if small – This signals increasing awareness of the company and a pattern of legitimate growth, as opposed to the big surges in price and volume often seen in low-priced stocks being used in “pump-and-dump” scams and boiler-room promotions.

Not All Penny Stocks to Buy Will Be Winners

Stewart also urged maintaining a sense of reality when trading penny stocks, reminding investors that while impressive gains are entirely possible they’re also rare. He suggested taking a “fund approach” to buying penny stocks, with a goal of doubling your money – not making one big score. While buying the right penny stock might result in a return on investment of thousands of percent such lucky penny stocks to buy decisions are rare and make only a fortunate few investors wealthy.

Penny Stocks to Buy Should Bought as Package

Put an equal amount of money into 10 penny stocks, he said, and odds are five will go broke, three will continue to chug along in the penny price range and two will turn into ten-baggers – which will give you a return in excess of 100% on the entire package.

Crocodile Gold Declares Cosmo Mine Commercial Production

By Gerald Greene

March 1, 2013

Crocodile Gold is a Canadian company with three operating mines in the Northern Territory and the State of Victoria in Australia. Crocodile Gold issued a press release via Marketwire on March 1, 2013 detailing full production is underway at its Cosmo mine.

7:01 AM ET 3/1/13 | Marketwire

Crocodile Gold Declares Commercial Production at Its Cosmo Mine

Crocodile Gold Corp. (TSX: CRK)(OTCQX: CROCF)(FRANKFURT: XGC) (“Crocodile Gold” or the “Company”) has reached commercial production at its Cosmo Mine.

During the last six months, the mine has sustained a development rate well in excess of its long-term requirements while increasing total ore production from less than 1,000 tonnes per day prior to September 2012 to over 1,650 tonnes per day in February 2013. At full production, Cosmo is expected to produce between 700,000 and 750,000 tonnes of ore per annum (or 2,000 to 2,150 tonnes per day) with associated recovered gold production of 75,000 to 90,000 ounces of gold.

Key Crocodile Gold Milestones:

Achieved an average ore production rate of approximately 1,600 tonnes per day during the last three months, which is equivalent to 75% of steady state production; — Increased the ore grade from approximately 2.5 g/t Au to 3.5 g/t Au. At current production levels, Cosmo is expected to produce over 5,000 ounces of gold per month; — Reached an average development rate of 535 meters per month over the last three months, in excess of 100% of the requirements for the next few years; — Demonstrated excellent recoveries of gold on Cosmo ore, ranging from 91% to 94%; — On target to reach full production rate of approximately 2,100 tonnes per day in the 4th quarter of 2013; and — Commissioned the main surface ventilation system in February 2013 that will provide airflow requirements as the mine reaches its full production rate later this year.

Commenting on these important milestones, Chantal Lavoie, President and CEO of the Company, said: “This represents a significant achievement for our Company. The dedication and resilience of our team combined with the support and engagement of our key business partners and local government agencies were all essential to attaining successful commercial production at the Cosmo Mine.”

Peter Crooks, General Manager – NT Operations, also commented: “Although some work remains to be done on major infrastructure such as expanding the underground electrical reticulation system, the ventilation airways network and the expansion of the underground pumping system, the key components are in place to bring the Cosmo Mine to a steady state operation.” He continued: “A significant amount of effort has been made to better understanding of the deposit’s geology and this will greatly assist in maintaining steady production. Four underground diamond drill rigs have been operating since last November in order to expand the resource and reserve base and allow the Company to better plan its future operations.”

Crocodile Gold is Trading at Multi Year Lows as Junior Mining Companies are Currently Out of Favor

Crocodile Gold is an interesting long-term play as at a price of $0.29 cents per share it is trading at multi year lows and traded as high as two dollars and 13 cents per share in early 2010. Like most junior mining shares the price has been crushed as gold consolidated around 1600 dollars per ounce during much of 2012 and early 2013. A resumption of gold’s long-term uptrend is expected during 2013.

Crocodile Gold 2012 Operating Cash Flow $ 39,143,792

Commenting on 2012 results, Chantal Lavoie, President and CEO of the Company said, “The fourth quarter results continue to support Crocodile Gold’s growth objectives. I am pleased to announce that the Company has achieved its production guidance with 155,000 ounces produced in 2012 and cash costs in line with forecasted figures. I believe that we have now built a stable base upon which to profitably grow gold production. We expect production in 2013 to exceed 2012 levels by 10%-15% as Cosmo enters into commercial production in the first quarter of 2013 and as we move other new projects forward.”

Disclosure: I have been purchasing Crocodile Gold Corp. shares near current lows and am taking  a longer term view with a three to five year holding period.

Definition of VMS District – Tirex Resources

VMS – Volcanogenic massive sulfide ore deposits – From Wikipedia:

Volcanogenic massive sulfide ore deposits (VMS ) are a type of metal sulfide ore deposit, mainly Cu-Zn-Pb which are associated with and created by volcanic-associated hydrothermal events in submarine environments.

These deposits are also sometimes called volcanic-hosted massive sulfide (VHMS) deposits. They are predominantly layered accumulations of sulfide minerals that precipitate from hydrothermal fluids on or below the seafloor in a wide range of ancient and modern geological settings. In modern oceans they are synonymous with sulfurous plumes called black smokers.

They occur within environments dominated by volcanic or volcanic-derived (e.g., volcano-sedimentary) rocks, and the deposits are contemporary and coincident with the formation of associated volcanic rocks. As a class, they represent a significant source of the world’s Cu, Zn, Pb, Au, and Ag ores, with Co, Sn, Ba, S, Se, Mn, Cd, In, Bi, Te, Ga and Ge as mining by-products.
