A Stock Market Conversation – about PRHB

Tuesday, September 3rd, 2013

copyright Bettina Network, inc. 2013

Every once in a while we have  conversation about the stock market – stocks people are buying – all the things of interest to those who invest, trade, gamble  stocks listed in the New York Stock Exchange, but sometimes we even have conversations about foreign exchanges and stocks traded around the world.

The most interesting are generally those connected with natural resources – gold, silver, oil and the like.

This one is about a small stock we traded before and so were interested to hear it come up for consideration once again.

It is PRHB –  which stands for Pure H2o BioTechnologies.  They are currently selling for $.0001 – so $100 will buy one million shares.  Our ears picked up immediately.  What a conversation piece.  We could buy this stock and talk to our friends dropping our million share purchase of a stock we expected to soar.  Well, to at least .01/share, but we will leave out that part.

The cost of one million shares is the cost of a lovely meal for two – so we will forego the meal and buy the stock.  Much more fun and with some lasting memories.  Maybe we will even send for the stock certificate and frame it for future generations.

The company has a good technology, we think.  It produces and distributes high purity water for industrial and institutional applications.  What could be more environmentally friendly.  They say their water treatment is trouble-free for their clients and they say “they manufacture the highest quality, totally integrated systems that exceed customer expectations and reduce customer operating costs.”

If you want to read more about them, their web site is www.ipureh2o.com or you can Yahoo, Google or Bing PRHB or their name!

We didn’t do a lot of research – instead we just bought the stock because we were looking for a bit of fun in the stock market, which has been great for some lately and a disaster for others.  We thought we would take the fun part and have a great story – follow a stock that could produce millions for us – or could lose us our $100 investment.

Maybe next month we may even buy another one million shares!  Our ears are open for those conversations at breakfast which just might bring us that windfall that the lottery has not produced.

Isn’t it amazing how bed and breakfast can add to the quality of your life!

ACRI, the stock we are buying

Monday, May 3rd, 2010

Moved from .060 where it closed on Friday to .0737 today. We think the move came from a press release from the company which talked about a new Purchase Order it received for product to be delivered in two weeks:

“Acro, Inc. Receives Purchase Order for ACRO-ETK5 Plus Explosives Detection Kit From Government Agency
9:04a ET May 3, 2010 (Market Wire)
Acro, Inc. (OTCBB: ACRI), a leading manufacturer of explosive detection solutions for the homeland security market and related sectors, today announced a new purchase order for its popular ACRO-ETK5 Plus explosives detection kit from an international government agency. The purchase order will be shipped in two weeks, and will be used in the field to detect a wide range of materials used in explosives.

“This product has been successfully used by Israeli Port Authorities and security forces of other countries around the world,” said Gadi Aner, President and Chief Executive Officer of Acro, Inc. “This newest purchase order demonstrates our ability to successfully grow our base of customers and increase market adoption for our products.”

The ETK5 Plus enables simple, rapid and reliable detection of persons engaged in preparing, handling or carrying explosive charges and allows for fast screening of suspects in the field. The kit aids in detection through exposure and proof of contact contamination of various surfaces by explosives.”

ACRI has a product which can be used by companies around the world and it looks as though it is beginning to get its groove on. Hopefully, it will continue to move up as more such orders come pouring in.

CAESAREA, ISRAEL, Apr 06, 2010 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX News Network) —
Acro, Inc.

“This order is very important for us because it continues our momentum in the United States and could further increase market adoption of our cutting-edge explosive detection solutions,” said Gadi Aner, CEO and Chairman of Acro, Inc.

ACRO-CH.E.T. (Chlorate Explosives Tester) is light, easy to use and gives instant results, even when explosive quantities are small. ACRO-CH.E.T. has low false positive and negative alarm rates, is very sensitive, and can detect 10 micrograms of chlorate based explosives traces.

This initial purchase order will be used to determine the suitability of Acro’s explosive detection devices for certain U.S. Army units. The order is expected to ship within few weeks.

About Acro: Acro, Inc. develops explosives detection technologies and manufactures relevant products. In addition to the explosives detectors that are currently marketed by Acro, the company continues to develop proprietary technologies for the HLS market.

Follow ANITTEB on Twitter

Thursday, April 22nd, 2010

copyright 2010 the Bettina Network, inc.

Anitteb is Bettina spelled backwards.

We have a twitter account and we are “tweeting” on how to build a fortune, starting from almost nothing. We are given lots from the bed and breakfast business and are doing two things with it;

1) Building a business which is fully integrated and brings in as many people and ideas as possible – and –

2) Sharing what we get from a great community of people as you all pass through our homes. The middle class is being squeezed today by the banks, and everyone else – how do you not just survive, but thrive. We think we’ve found one way and we have lots of help from all of you, so we are sharing.

With Twitter we are going to try to build a fortune, going from $500 to $10,000,000 in one year.

We need your help – if you have a twitter account, sign up to follow us on Twitter. If you do not have a twitter account it is easy to sign up. Go to www.twitter.com. They will ask for your email – a screen name – and a password.

Once on Twitter put – anitteb – in the search box. Once anitteb comes up, check ‘following’ and you can then log out. You will receive our “tweets” in your email box or you can log onto twitter and get them there.

You can then buy whatever we have bought and hopefully, with this community of people, we will all do very well and that goal of moving from $500 to $10 million dollars will be realized. You might make money and on our bad days you might lose money, Hopefully, it will all work out in the end so that the net result moves us to our goal.

Don’t have a brokerage account? Let us know and we will tell you how to get one where you only need a little money to start.

Its all in good fun and we might wind up making complete nuts of ourselves, but it won’t be the first time so what’s to lose?

We hope you will send us your feedback as you read the “tweets”.

Tell all of your friends!

Let us know what you think!

Sincerely,

All of us at Bettina’s

Keep in touch with a great community of people through Bettina’s Blog www.bettina-network.com

If you are bowled over by us and want to become a host family, putting your home in the Bettina Network to welcome guests from all over the world – call us at 800 347 9166 – and lets talk.

If you have or know of an estate that needs to be sold – redistributed back into the world from whence it has come – call us also.

Have a house you want us to take over and manage – we can do that to.

Geez! What won’t they try next?

Even More Stock Market Information

Tuesday, April 6th, 2010

copyright by The Bettina Network, inc. 2010

A summary of this breakfast’s stock market conversation is only for the strong of heart.

We had a guest who was celebrating wildly at breakfast. He owns 1 million shares of a little stock called EKWX. To find it we had to go to http://investorshub.advfn.com/, an information web site for people who spend $50 and buy a few million shares of stock (I hope you realize that is an exaggeration).

This is a stock which sat dormant for several years at about .0006/share and since March 31, 2010 has gone to .002/share. Figure out that profit if you owned the 1,000,000 shares. There is no information on the company I could find. The guest knew nothing, he was totally into his euphoria over his great luck and he was going home to buy more.

Going to Investors Hub,—- when their site opened, on the landing page on the left hand side was a list of the 15 stocks with the most comments, which were left by those who regularly follow what happens on investors hub and at the top of the list was EKWX. Much of what we read was about conjectures that this was going to be a reverse merger where EKWX is a publicly traded shell, probably merging with a private company and the activity comes about because, as you know, news leaks, only we aren’t on the top of the list to get the leaks.

EKWX traded almost a billion shares today and has gone up some 350% since 3/31/2010.

We are going to follow this guest and his stock tradings. We asked him to write a blog for Bettina’s, but he spends his days watching the stocks he buys and sells and doesn’t write.

He danced around the breakfast table all morning, trying to stay sane until the stock market opened and he could watch his stock – which he did, all day. We would have danced with him if we owned any of EKWX, but since we don’t we just drank an extra cup of coffee.

If the stock goes to $1, he becomes an instant millionaire.

This has better odds than the lottery, at least you get to keep some of your money if what you expect doesn’t happen.

The blogs are hot with this stock and the conjecture on most of this is that EKWX – a public shell – is in the process of becoming a Reverse Merger. Which is what is causing all the furor.

What is a Reverse Merger with a Public Shell?

“A Reverse Merger is a transaction where by the private company shareholders may gain control of a public company by merging it in with their private company. The private company shareholders receive a substantial majority of the shares of the public company (normally 85% to 90% or more) and the control of the board of directors. The transaction can be accomplished in as little as two weeks, resulting in the private company becoming a public company. The transaction does not go through a review process with state and federal regulators because the public company has already completed the process. The transaction involves the private and shell company exchanging information on each other, negotiating the merger terms, and signing a share exchange agreement. At the closing the public shell company issues a substantial majority of its shares and the board control to the shareholders of the private company. The private company shareholders pay for the shell and contribute their private company shares to the shell company and the private company is now public.

Upon completion of the reverse merger, the name of the shell company is usually changed to the name of the private company. If the shell company has a trading symbol it is changed to reflect the name change. An information statement, called an 8-K, must be filed within 4 days of the closing. The 8-K describes the newly combined company, stock issued, information of new officers and directors, a full description of the business, and financial statements audited to US GAAP standards. The 8-K must disclose the same type of information that it would be required to provide in registering a class of securities under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.
(See Sec Final Rule 33-8587, pdf file)

If the shell company is listed on the Bulletin board, the registered or “free trade” shares can continue to trade. The company can do a private placement immediately. To trade new shares offered by the public the newly combined public company must first register the shares with the SEC. This process takes three to four months and normally requires filing a Registration statement with the SEC under Reg. SB-2 or SB-1.

If the shell company does not have a symbol, an application for a symbol is usually made to the NASDAQ Bulletin Board. The application for a symbol requires filing a Form 211 by a market maker that is a member of the NASD. The Bulletin Board has no financial requirements. A listing will be granted if the affairs of the company are in order and the company answers the questions posed by NASDAQ.”

ED: NOTE; THIS WAS COPIED FROM THE Investors Hub Web site to give you an idea of what this kind of trading is like and how and where to find information when you are off the big board and onto the sub-penny stocks. We hope they don’t mind.

Of course, another possibility is that this is what is called a “pump and dump”, something which happens on these boards. Someone starts buying a stock to get your attention, little by little others jump on the band wagon seeing the action and when the stock has moved up a bit, the original person sells all of his stock and runs to the bank with the money, leaving a lot of folks holding the “bag”. Only generally, the stocks don’t go this high this fast with a pump and dump operation going.

Wheee! Isn’t this fun? It actually would be if we had money invested in EKWX at .0006. This way, as observers, it is a learning experience and especially learning how to contain our jealousy of someone who has that 1 million shares.

Stock Market Talk Over Breakfast

Monday, March 15th, 2010

copyright 2010 The Bettina Network, inc.

I love those stock market conversations. This time, I decided to buy the stock and make a few dollars (hopefully). I hope you forgive me for buying the stock before telling you about it – since I only bought a few shares it certainly hasn’t affected the market. I am not really a big spender, the stock I bought cost $.1915/share for this company which mines molybdenum. I know nothing about molybdenum, but that has never stopped me before.

The stock we talked about and that I bought is Avanti Mining (AVNMF). The same person who told us about this stock several months ago came back and we had a more in-depth conversation. When he was here before, I was a little shy about grilling him on his stock interests, but this time I found my aggressiveness and gave him the third degree.

He found the stock through www.stockhouse.com, a web site which is about American, Canadian and Australian stocks, among others. You can find information on Stockhouse about stocks you can’t find other places – like its currently traded price, press releases, comments and a blog hooked to each stock where people, who are buying the company, tell you what they know. They are mostly very inexpensive stocks.

You can do many things on Stockhouse, but if you want to know more, you should check it out yourselves. The breakfast conversation centered around the column and newsletter written by Thomas Calandra. Calandra co-founded ‘CBS Market Watch’. He has been around quite a while and knows his way around buying and selling stocks. Our bed & breakfast guest follows Calandra’s ‘Ticker Trax’, which is a newsletter which comes out on a regular basis, which has made lots of money for its subscribers. It is mostly about gold, silver, molybdenum, uranium, Biotechnology, Diagnostic Substances, drug manufacturers, etc. The stocks in Ticker Trax are low in price, so most of us can buy a nice amount. I should also tell you it is not a free newsletter, you have to subscribe and I don’t know the cost per year. You might check that out too. I think the address is www.tickertrax.com or you might try www.ThomCalandra.com. You can go on Stockhouse.com and get a free copy of the newsletter to see what its like. It will not be the latest issue because he saves that for his paying customers and rightfully so.

Calandra checks out all of these companies, follows their management and keeps up with the health of the company. His track record is impressive. I used to follow and subscribe to another newsletter written by John Embry, who was known as THE person to go to about gold miners and other miners, but he retired and I have been left hanging out trying to decide what to do so we were very interested in knowing what our bed & breakfast guest thought about Thom Calandra since he seems to be Embry’s heir-apparent.

The last stock we talked about on Bettina’s Blog was Ford Motor Co. It was selling about $11/share at the time – check out the blog – and it is now selling about $13/share. WE have also told you about other stocks which were the topic of breakfast conversations. At some point, I will do another update on what has happened to those stocks. In the meantime, you can re-read those blogs and see for yourself what happened to the stocks our bed & breakfast guests discuss.

Breakfast at Bettina’s – By a Guest!

Wednesday, January 6th, 2010

This is great!  I’ve had this secret wish to be a journalist for a long time.  I do a lot of writing, but all scientific and publishing for scientific journals so you can guess I am an astrophysicist, and those who stay at Bettina’s a lot and recommended this house to me – you know where I am – with my family this time, not on business.  i had to show my wife and children this house.  They love the doll houses and all the toys.  The kids slipped out of the room very early in the morning.  At first I panicked, how do I keep them reined in here – and I almost lost it when I thought of all those antiques in every room of the house,  then I heard ………. offering them a cup of hot chocolate and I knew I could go back to sleep.

Since they were playing right outside the door – one into the doll houses, the other hauling toys up to the landing from the toy room downstairs, I felt ok to sleep without worrying about them.  The place was a grand mess when we finally got up and dressed.  No one seemed to mind so we just left the mess because we knew it would only recur.  We did clean it up before we left for home – for those of you who don’t want me to ruin a good thing for you!

Breakfast was really special.  Having read the Blog, I wondered about those ‘stock tips’.  Maybe I would be at breakfast the morning a great investor dropped a huge tip which would make us a fortune.  Well I was at breakfast with a fairly heated discussion about a couple stocks.  Much heat, not enough light, but I am going home to buy the one which won the battle – Ford Motor Company.  A couple, who are in the stock market on a regular basis, talked about their ‘investments’ and they just bought Ford Motor Company.  My first thought was – WHY?  It just didn’t sound very exciting and given all the trouble with the automobile companies who would jump in and buy one.  By the end of breakfast I was quietly convinced I should put nice money into Ford.  It is selling today at about $11, according to my breakfast mates.  They bought Ford at about $8.  I am going to buy around $11-12.  Hopefully, I will make enough to pay for this trip.

Because it is a holiday – although not my holiday, our hosts put a book at each plate.  That was our Christmas gift.  Its great.  You can’t move in that house for tripping over books so it made sense that a book would be a gift.  Being very comfortable since I’ve been here a zillion times, I had to ask if I could swap the book they gave me for one I was reading in the bedroom and of course I could, so I am going home with three books – one a first edition.  My wife is horrified at my lack of manners, but I go downstairs late at night in my robe and pajamas to get hot milk, why not ask about another book?  Is it possible to feel too much at home?  I actually feel as though I am visiting my parents – I would say grandparents, but they are going to read this blog and I want to be welcomed back.

My wife plays the piano so she enjoyed playing on the grand piano in the house.  I’m not sure the rest of us did.  Later in the day we heard fantastic music coming from the piano.   We were really tired and didn’t go down to see who was playing.  It was so nice just to listen, in bed.  I know enough about music to know it was Chopin, and to know it was good, but I did fall asleep in the middle of the music.

Oh, I almost forgot.  While my wife and I were sleeping the kids made playdoh – well not the real thing, but a pretty good imitation.  It was the highlight of their stay and they are bringing it home with them.  They made it out of flour, water and salt cooked up in a very large pot.  Given our lack of an organic home and our tendency to buy all of their toys, they were really excited about this amazing experience.

Hope you enjoyed my blog.  It was fun writing it.  Is this payment for the books I am bringing home?

Update on 2009 Stock Tips at Breakfast!

Thursday, December 31st, 2009

2009 copyright the Bettina Network, inc.

We received notes from guests about buying stock mentioned over breakfast when they stayed at a Bettina home.  Three stocks were mentioned and we have the dates the guests purchased the stock.  To keep it honest, lets take an end of the year note on what happened.

On 6/15/2009 a guest wrote about the conversation about IVAN, then selling at $1.56/share and IVN, then selling at $6.12/share.  You might check out those posts for more information.  This is only to bring those conversations up to date.
Today IVAN is selling for $2.86/share – the energy stock
IVN is selling for $14.63/share – the gold mining stock

On 7/21/2009 another guest wrote about a conversation around a Bettina breakfast table about SIRI.  On that date SIRI was selling for $ .425/share.
Today SIRI is selling for $.5895/share – the Sirius XM Radio stock

We will keep you up to date on other stock conversations and hope the people who emailed us about their purchase of these stocks will also email us when they sell.

Stock Information

Friday, September 4th, 2009

It is great reading your blog! Keep up the good work. I especially like the variety of information. My contribution will be two stocks I bought today. One is Avanti Mining (AVNMF) and the other is Sunridge Gold (SGCNF). Hopefully, these two will do as well for your readers as the stocks you mentioned in other blogs. I bought all of the stocks from your other blogs and am very happy with my new portfolio and not a minute too soon because the stocks I bought over the past several years lost a lot of money for me. So I shall reciprocate by suggesting stocks I think might benefit your readers in return for and as a thank you for the money I made on other readers’ suggestions.

Avanti Mining is a molybdenum mining stock. Your readers will have to search for the company and the molybdenum to know more about it. It costs something like $ .167 so it is really inexpensive and $100 dollars can buy almost 600 shares.
Sunridge Gold came out with a big announcement today of an investment by Antofagasta Mining putting some $10 million dollars into the company for exploration purposes. Sunridge has property in Eritrea. Antofagasta is in Chile and several other countries. Search on their name and you will learn something about the company. It was selling today for some $ .6225. It was selling a few days ago for $.45 so the investment of ten mill jumped the stock by about 25%. I think it will double shortly. It has about 4.5 million in cash on hand for exploration, this 10 million triples its cash. It should be able to do great things and the property Sunridge is exploring seems to be a company “sitting on riches.”
I know you check out these suggestions after awhile. I hope I am not embarrassed when you do that. I would not want to make money on someone else’s suggestions only to have mine tank! I did a lot of research on these before buying so hopefully, that helps.

A Stock Market Follow-Up

Friday, August 21st, 2009

Copyright the Bettina Network, inc. 2009

From the blog “Stock Market Action at Breakfast”.
The guest wrote about buying two stocks from a discussion around the breakfast table at a Bettina Network home. The blog is dated June 15, 2009. The stocks they talked about were IVAN and IVN. IVAN – an oil stock and IVN a gold mining stock. On the day we received their note – June 15, 2009 – IVAN was selling at $1.56/share. Today IVAN is selling at $1.39/share.
IVN, however, was selling at $6.12/share. Today IVN is selling at $9.13/share so on the whole, they did very well. We will continue to follow the stock tips we receive to keep you up to date on how good or how poor these conversations are for stocks.

Update on Guests Stock Tip

Friday, August 21st, 2009
Copyright by the Bettina Network, inc. 2009

We received a correspondence from a former guest on 7/4/2009 saying they bought SIRI – Sirius Radio at $ .425/share.

The Blog is entitled “A Guests’ Email re Stock Tips” We will not let these stock tips go un-followed, so today we looked up SIRI and discovered it is currently selling for $ .76/share. That is an increase of $.335/share – not far from a double and today is August 21, 2009. Not bad. We don’t know how much they purchased and if they sold it or kept it so we can’t comment on their profit. Not bad folks.

A Guests’ Email re Stock Tips

Tuesday, July 21st, 2009

“Thanks for putting up the blog on stock tips. Otherwise I would not have written this one. Didn’t think it was anything of interest to your blog readers.

At breakfast at a Bettina home we had a great conversation about the stock market and the tip I picked up was SIRI – Sirius Radio. The general consensus was that SIRI would be a great stock to own over August-September. I hope so because I bought some at $ .425 and am hoping for a quick double. I did a lot of work researching before I bought it and found it had moved from about 16 cents to over 40 cents in a few months. My concern is that it is below the $1.00 requirement of the board so it is a bit risky if it doesn’t make that nice move. I also discovered that the board voted to do a reverse split only I don’t know who would decide if that vote should be implemented.
I put in money I could lose so I wouldn’t suggest anyone follow my actions with their serious money.
Breakfast in the Bettina home where I stayed was a great experience. It reminded me of the way private men’s clubs – which I used to belong to – functioned at mealtime. In this home it was roughly equivalent to the “open table” where members would sit if they were alone at mealtime at the club. More deals were made at the open table than I could reiterate in a month of Sundays.
Thanks for such a great concept in a way to travel.
A devoted guest who will return.
correspondence dated 7/4/2009

Stock Market Action at Breakfast

A guests response to a Bettina Breakfast

Hi Bettina People:
I stayed in one of your homes a couple months ago and enjoyed it thoroughly. The guest questionnaire is great, but I thought this note of thanks, in addition, was really needed. We had great breakfasts every morning, but one particular morning helped us financially.
We had a very lively conversation about the economy. I mentioned how much money my wife and I lost in the stock market. The immediate response was – Madoff? But no we just lost a lot of money! A great conversation ensued in which I wrote down two stocks – Ivan and Ivn – to look up when I got home. It was a hilarious conversation as well as lots of input as to what’s happening in the economy.
Long story short – I didn’t look up the stocks, I did buy them and they have now doubled so our trip was paid for and then some by this tip at breakfast. Wish all my days were like that. Needless to say I have become a Bettina fan. My next trip is to Washington, D. C. and I will call you to make reservations for a home in D. C. Who knows, maybe I will find another great stock tip waiting. (I know that won’t happen, but it was such a shot in the arm for us after mourning for so long over our lost money and not expecting to find such a boost at a bed & breakfast.) Thanks!! Keep up the good work!!!
