Playing Blowout Earnings (Again) with EnviroStar, Inc.

Sometimes the market provides investors with gifts—great entry points for stocks of up-and-coming companies which are flat-out performing and profitable. Right now, I believe that’s the case with EnviroStar, Inc., a “low-floater” that just reported blowout earnings, and whose share price should be in line for some nice gains ahead if you’re patient enough to stay the course. EnviroStar, Inc., through its wholly-owned subsidiary, Steiner-Atlantic Corp., distributes commercial and industrial laundry and dry cleaning equipment and steam and hot waters boilers manufactured by others, supplies replacement parts and accessories and provides maintenance services to its customers, and designs and plans laundry, dry cleaning and boiler systems to meet the layout, volume and budget needs of…

Taking Stock – Following Up On Some OTC Winners

It’s been a rough and highly volatile start to 2014 for market players. That makes now an opportune time to look at the performance of some recent recommendations and close out some older OTC positions, as the “easy money” bull market days of 2013 appear to be coming to at least a temporary halt. Fusion Pharm (FSPM) This issue was one of two plays that appeared primed to benefit from the capital rush into marijuana stocks that accompanied Colorado’s legalization of the substance in January, and plans afoot in many other states to pass similar legislation. As hoped, FSPM shares raced all the way to and through the $8 mark after we wrote about the…

Getting High (returns) With Colorado’s Legalization

I can’t think of any historical precedent for what’s happening with marijuana in the United States—when a formerly illegal substance with a massive built-in market becomes legal. Alcohol prohibition almost fits the bill, but alcohol was legal before prohibition. That being the case, it’s time to take a look at two pure play over-the-counter stocks that appear well-positioned to benefit from Colorado’s burgeoning marijuana industry: Fusion Pharm, Inc. (FSPM) and Endexx, Inc. (EDXC). Fusion Pharm, Inc. Based in Denver, Colorado, Fusion Pharm, Inc. manufactures and sells a patent pending commercial hydroponic cultivation system capable of growing almost any herb, vegetable, flower, fruit or terrestrial plant better and faster than traditional farming methods. The system is…

The Ghost of GLD Ghosts Past

GLD

A happy New Year to all. Let’s get straight to business. We’ll start with the golden delicious – what appears to be a bounce in the precious metals that has many people wondering if we’ve seen the bear’s bottom. On the bullish side, the chart shows the SPDR Gold Trust (NYSE:GLD), a decent proxy for the metal, moving higher over the last few sessions, and her Relative Strength Index (black circle, at bottom) ascending above its midway waterline. But beyond that, there’s little on offer that’s positive. We still have all the moving averages unfurled and trending lower, including the no-nonsense 137 DMA, which has proven itself an indomitable line of resistance for the last…

Godzilla Investing

Godzilla

Sometimes we rant. It’s never too long, usually, and we don’t do it often, so when an occasion like New Year’s affords us an excuse and the spirit of the rant settles upon us, we figure it’s time to take a minute and let loose. First off, we had a good year. It was a good year because we remained independent. We laid out our own investment hypothesis and stuck with it regardless the noise. We made tactical adjustments along the way if our thinking, or just our timing, proved askew. And we can’t emphasize that first point strongly enough. Success is never the product of doing what the other guy’s doing, or just did,…

On The Fast Track With Navidea

I’m rarely attracted to publically traded small-cap biotech and pharmaceutical firms. Most are struggling to get their products approved by the FDA, and looking to enter a marketplace already populated with “800-pound gorillas”—giant big pharma multinationals with deep pockets and heavy-duty institutional support. Very occasionally, however, I’ll stumble upon an up-and-comer in the sector that appears well worth a long look as a nice long-term investment. Right now, Navidea Pharmaceuticals (NAVB) is just such a company. Now in its 30th year of operation, Navidea Pharmaceuticals is a biopharmaceutical concern focused on the development and commercialization of precision diagnostics and radiopharmaceutical agents. The company’s radiopharmaceutical development programs include Lymphoseek (Lymphoseek, Kit for the Preparation of Technetium…

SURGing Towards The Black

In the never-ending push to find “the next big thing,” or capitalize on volatile, short-lived momentum movers, market participants often miss out on bread-and-butter issues that hold out the potential for slow, steady and relatively risk-free gains.

(SURG) may offer just such an opportunity right now, as the company’s bottom-line performance and outlook suggest that it is very much headed in the right direction.

Signs Point to Breakout Move for Highpower International

Sometimes there are fundamental reasons for a company’s stock price to rise – usually tied to expanding sales and a growing bottom line profit. Other times a stock will jump primarily based on its technical trading profile.

Update – Taking Stock Before The Holidays

It’s been an amazing, record-shattering ride for U.S. equity markets in 2013. With Thanksgiving right around the corner, and Christmas less than one month later, it’s a good time to look back at several of our picks, evaluate how they did, and weigh in on how these plays may perform during the rest of the year and beyond. Sharps Compliance (SMED) Sharps Compliance Corp. (SMED), which I brought to your attention in late October, is in the business of collecting and disposing of medical waste, and a range of other dangerous potential contaminants.  Based on the company’s latest earnings report, indicating that business was booming, along with several other factors, I felt that there was…
