  • I like the name, and the PR.

    Sentiment: Buy

  • Looks almost like an ascending triangle forming. Or is it a Bearish Three Outside Down? Or do we pop up to $79 due to jobless numbers rising tide. Guess we'll find out today.

    99% of analysts bullish on FB including everyone at CNBC. Sadly Zuck is still Mission before Money. I have to say that if any 2nd yr Harvard business school student were in charge the stock would already be at $90. Sigh.

    So it may not be reasonable to hold this stock for the full 5 year plan with Sandberg in charge of her reign of shareholder terror. As long as current management is disinterested in profits and more interested in spending, FB seems like it's going to underperform its potential. Luckily even when it underperforms it's still a good growth stock.

    So does new money go into MCD and FB? Probably just enough to inch above $80. MSFT and BABA money should go to FB now. Retracements are always possible given the bias against the stock but with so many consistent beats, what's the point in avoiding FB and AAPL?

    FB rises slowly from here to $91 thru May 2015. In spite of management, as usual. This is what happens when a few people are in charge at the top. Shareholders don't get remunerated for the risk taken. Still, in this market, FB and AAPL are pretty good bets for the next 6 months.

    Sentiment: Buy

  • Almost ... lol.

  • Absolutely. FB is now cheaper than NIKE.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

    Another strong beat, huge cash pile, #1 Zacks rating. FB is just a juggernaut that everyone loves to hate and manipulate.

    It dropped 10% once before AH of a big earnings beat due to all the shenanigans, and soon warped right back up.

    There's no doubt that FB now carries the earnings power of a GOOG and a AAPL. They just aren't a super shareholder friendly because it's a one man show. That's the difference.

    OTOH, there's very little doubt that FB is going to be over $100 in the near future. They said from the beginning that this was a 3-5 year investment. They are just about halfway there. I think they deserve another 6 months to see if they are serious about shareholders. After that, it may be time to redeploy some cash.

    Sentiment: Buy

    VOIS - Large Volume Spike Yesterday!

    Doubt positive news. Maybe a pumper published something.

    If the stock can hold this 0008 to 0009 range and form a little double bottom and break 001 again i will chance more buying. I sent an email to IR last wk and got no response.

    Next PR should be very telling here in the dead of winter. If there are new delays to production and distribution in the next PR that would certainly change my view of the company's basic credibility and ability to execute. If they are back on track with distribution of the product in the next 8 weeks I suppose the gamble is still worth the risk.

    Where is this production facility anyway?

    Sentiment: Hold

    Certainly seems to have minimal downside risk at this price, and decent potential upside IF they actually get to the distribution phase.

    Sentiment: Hold

    Agree. Time now to short oil until Buffett makes an announcement that he is loading up on more XOM.

    lol... end of year selling doesn't prove much. They said they would start manufacturing in Q1 so it's a little soon in the quarter to decide that they have no product or distribution.

    Still worth a gamble for a few more weeks because they have a billionaire on the board. Of course bashers and traders and pumpers abound. As always do your own dd.

    This is my only penny stock now.

    Sentiment: Buy

  • I'm no expert, not making recs but I sold off all my other pennies except VOIS. I will probably add after new year's. Penny trading could be fun with even some very minimal oversight regulation by the SEC. It's too bad.

    Lots of loyal followers probably still feel Abrams' connection makes VOIS THE best penny play in 2015. VR and BCI seem to be likely break out tech ideas in 2015. We'll see.

    Could VOIS crash and burn? of course. Very likely. Maybe the product isn't comfortable, or maybe it's just hard to market. But the risk reward given the 0015 support suggests a reason to load up more if they progress well with the next PR.

    End of yr sell off seems mild and about as expected. Right now, no news is good news as long as Abrams is still connected with his distribution chains.

    So if you only want to play with one penny next yr, why not VOIS?

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

    This must be the highest dividend stock with a Zacks #1 Rating. Strange that it isn't attracting more interest.
    Worth a gamble with a dividend nearing 30%.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

    They tested a whole bunch of inferior products - not MCIG. Sensationalist journalism.

    I think the downside risk is limited, but the upside may be as well with the spin off of VCIG, and the divi effect now over.

    Still, MCIG is one of the only pennies I have found with a product that is being sold, with a price advantage over much of the competition, that has no toxic debt, and fairly good assurances of no dilution. I think that's what gives it a leg up and more ardent holders than other MJNA/ECIG plays. That's why it's a buy if you're looking for a penny stock in this sector.

    LiqCig and VCIG could also be a disruptive products if they catch on. VCIG may be a better play at this point.

    Bashing a penny stock that has no debt and limited dilution threat is pointless. ALL pennies can obviously go to zero. They are not backed by Bill Gates, and they are not run by Colin Powell. So as always, don't buy pennies if you are afraid of losing every dime.

    long - MCIG, VCIG, VOIS

    Sentiment: Buy

    lol .... seems to have very good support above 20 cents which is what I suggested way back as a re entry point when we dropped to 35 cents.

    The entire MJNA and e cig sector suffered the last few months from bad publicity and regulation rants. Now that the divi drama and the worst of the publicity seems over, the support seems real at .22. More ecig bashing is probably going to happen over the next year, but the worst of it may be over.

    Good sign indeed holding above 20 cents today. Let's see what happens next week.

    Sentiment: Hold

    Hmmm... buyers may be waiting for the price to fall further. It should have already had some public interest. I'm an emotional mom and pop investor. Other REITs look much better and have less taint.

    I can buy Verizon and do just as well. Sounds like it's time to cut bait.

    Sentiment: Sell
