    Missed a zero in the stock price.....75K investment , not 750K..

    What can this company do with that kind of money? Payroll?

  • Takes 9.99% stake per filing...Yahoo won't let me paste link

    Implies 220,000,000 outstanding common shares.

    VV has pulled this stunt before where he gets a fund to invest but doesn't have all the board members approval. Not saying this is the case here but leopard normally doesn't change his spots. Will be interest to see where $750K investment goes to.

    Sentiment: Sell

    Marketwired release 9-22-14

    Typical VV PR...list the total available size of the oilfield and imply that is what their well can possibly produce. The only numbers they have ever claimed on any well is 100 bbls a month so you do the math on that. Again typical OTC BB pinkie press release. Blind 'em with a large number to hide the fact that their capabilities are so small that no one even knows they exist.

    It's possible that VV will produce more PR's than barrels of oil.

    Sentiment: Sell

    You'll never see a 10-Q or a 10-K IMO because it's VV.

    Notice how anyone they "hire" has a skeleton in the closet that VV conveniently says he didn't know about. Forces VV to have to contract with another lawyer who will likely get paid in shares.

    If somebody went out to those wells I'm confident that there is a different story to what Paradigm has disclosed IMO.

    Shareholder call will be a love fest with VV hyping how great business is while he looks at the ocean from his beachfront condo. Some people never learn.

    New CFO

    Doubt it as Stewart was also hired on Sept 8. 2014 to be CFO of Spiral Toys. Another entertainment guy in the oil and gas business. The guy is consultant at best and doubt if he would be inclined to dig thru moving boxes to come up with financial statements. This is just a company that will continue to issue only 8-K's . Highly unlikely you will ever see a 10-Q or 10-K. Typical VV move.

    From a Marketwired press release dated September 8, 2014:

    In addition, RoCap Marketing/Spiral Toys has appointed Robert Stewart, former CFO at NewSight Inc. and Yada Yada, as their Chief Financial Officer. Mr. Stewart has extensive IPO experience in the entertainment sector and was the audit manager at Price Waterhouse.
    "I worked with Mr. Stewart for a number of years while I was at Disney and know him to be sharp, intuitive and reliable executive who knows how to navigate the rough seas of a tech start-up," says Mr. Meyers.
    Spiral Toys, a RoCap company, has developed an integrated hardware/software/cloud solution that enables mobile-connected entertainment as part of their user experience. Spiral already has completed product development and has products in the marketplace, as well as an ongoing co-development agreement with a major entertainment studio.

    Building acquistion

    With today's news that the company has now decided to pass on purchasing the property saying "it's not in the best interests of the company", one has to wonder about the Sept. 10th press release where it plainly states the bought, it was worth $500K, they paid 470K and how great the property was. Maybe he was just told by the appraiser that the property was worth only $300K.

    Vince is tossing out press releases left and right, just as he did at his other companies, that announce some great accomplishment then retracts or contradicts at a later point in time. Strange (not really) how financial reports or filings can never seem to be completed.

    Run people run unless you like playing pinkies with no real news.

    Sentiment: Sell

    They spent 470K on a building that was listed anywhere between $295K - $395K during the past few months. Not too smart. Guess the preferred stock component forced them to overpay. Run from Vince as fast as you can. What does a guy who spent his entire life in the entertainment business know about oil & gas business?

    Coffee futures have gotten pounded over the last few days on this news....The roasters say they are able to buy significant amounts of Coffee from Peru and Colombia right now, and this talk has been around the market but not confirmed. However, reports from Colombia have noted the very strong production this year, so increased selling is likely.

    While it won't make up for the Brazilian shortfall it's at least providing a cushion to the shortage.

    And that eventually affects JVA since it's a hedging operation.


    Sentiment: Buy
