Call(s) to Action:

SPCB ($9.08), Digital Identify Solutions –  files shelf which we presume will be used for making future acquisitions and/or filling its growing pipeline of orders.  Just like GTT and IG, if shares pullback we will use as an opportunity to add trading shares to our core positions.

CSTI ($12.20), Video Security Products – Conducted follow up interview with CSTI management to better understand the implication of the its most recent acquisition of COHU.  We do not think the market has fully priced in this transformative acquisition into the shares of CSTI.  We are looking to add to our position.

NHTC ($7.20), Nutritional Products – Reported preliminary Q2 2014 results; expects revenues to be $34.2 million vs $10.6 million in the prior year period an up sequentially from the $23.2 million reported in Q1 2014.   We are still long.  If shares open weak or down we will look to add to our position.

Speculative Plays…

Progressive Green Solutions In (OTCCB:PGSC) ($2.95) a development stage company, focuses on the sale of mobile marketing solutions for businesses through the launch of a Web-based platform.  Reasons for tracking:

  • Reverse merger with increasing revenues and tight share structure. Completed a reverse merger on 3/13/2014.
  • Operate in sexy industry


  • Still losing a lot of money
  • Have to raise a lot of capital, already set at raising capital under $1 at a price of $0.13

Not sure if this will be a pump and dump candidate but with the company raising money at $0.13 which is significantly lower than its current price of $2.95, we could foresee a scenario where a pump campaign occurs to increase volume so these shares can be sold.

Stock has risen from $0.40 to $2.95 in the last 3 weeks.
