Call to Action: Hemispherx Biopharma (HEB) – Will look to trade due to Chardan Capital pitching HEB as EBOLA play with $3 price target.

Looking to trade HEB ($0.35) – Quote from Chardan report.

“Chardan Capital affirms its Buy rating and $3 price target on Hemispherx BioPharma (AMEX: HEB) following a recent company update and expanded Ebola collaborations.”

Please note that we have little respect for Chardan due to their past involvement in financing several of what we considered to be fraudulent U.S. listed China companies. But the pump and dump momentum crowd may look at HEB, so we will give the trade shot.

Summary of general highlights:

On the Asian Front…

Lentuo Intl (NYSE:LAS) ($1.74) a leading non-state-owned automobile retailer headquartered in Beijing, announced,

it has been granted approval to become a BMW authorized dealer. The Company’s first BMW dealership will be built in Gaobeidian, Hebei Province, China.

The Company’s first BWM dealership in Gaobeidian is another major step in the Company’s strategy to expand sales and services of premium cars in China while continuing to diversify its business away from Beijing. This will be the first and only BWM dealership in Gaobeidian, a small, economically prosperous city located just south of Beijing in the Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei economic triangle. Gaobeidian is one of the first development and reform pilot cities designated by the National Development and Reform Commission in the 12th Five-Year Plan.

The BWM dealership will offer the full suite of Lentuo value-added after sales services, including vehicle financing, auto insurance, car leasing, auto accessories and spare parts, and will be adjacent to a high-volume office complex and upscale residential area. The dealership will cover an area of 14,000 square meters which includes a 12-car showroom and a repair and maintenance service center with 50 separate workstations.

“We are extremely excited to add a second high-end brand to our portfolio. Thanks to our solid brand recognition and reputation for high technical quality, we are confident that we will build a long and fruitful relationship with BMW. We continue our discussions with other high-end brands and believe we will see more positive developments in the future,” commented Mr. Hetong Guo, Founder and Chairman of Lentuo International. “The construction of our first BMW dealership is another critical step in our development, not only because of the diversification and expansion in our high-end portfolio but also because we continue our expansion outside Beijing. Sitting at the heart of the Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei economic triangle, Gaobeidian is an ideal location with its ability to attract customers from nearby cities, growing population and rapid economic growth. By expanding into new territories outside Beijing, we will be able to increase the brand visibility for our premium car business and fully leverage the 20 years of industry knowledge and leading customer service experience we have accumulated.”
