SinoCoking Coal & Coke Chemical Industries, Inc. SCOK
SCOK was a huge standout call from yesterday’s newsletter. The play came off of our extended watchlist and it was pretty apparent right from the get-go that we had a breakout runner on our hands.
After trading for a little as 3.35 at the open, the stock quickly shot skyward, bulling its way up to an astonishing afternoon high of 9.37. That was an incredible intraday pop totaling 180% on volume exceeding the monthly average by more than 151X (an all-time record!) so cheers go out to anyone who caught this monster mover with us!
The major chart development came concurrently with an announcement by the company regarding an upcoming coal-to-gas conversion project in China which is “expected to be completed in February 2015 and yield syngas output of 60,000 cubic meters per hour, which the company says will equate to $30 million-$45 million in added gross profit by 2015.” >>>READ PR
It’s important to temper enthusiasm after a huge news-fueled run like this, and to keep in mind that even after yesterday’s huge pop, the company does still only have a market cap of roughly $170M, so a course correction would not be a surprise from this point. For anyone who isn’t already in on the action, a safe route would be to wait for a pullback and subsequent bounce.
Alkame Holdings, Inc. ALKM
We sincerely hope some of our readers were able to capitalize on our flag of ALKM in yesterday’s report. We radared this play after it was yielded up by a routine morning scan showing significant trading action, and it was a good thing we did.
ALKM started out trading at .157 in the early morning, and began to steadily uptrend. Around lunchtime, things really began to kick into high gear, as the stock would go on to reach a high of .27. That marked an intraday increase of 72%
The volume in ALKM was rather significant as well, to the tune of just over 38X its 3-month average, and the stock held a vast majority of its gains into the close, however we would still urge readers to use extreme caution in dealing with this stock beyond this point. We’ve identified it as the latest pick from the notorious group of promoters formerly known Awesome Penny Stocks, who says that they “expect to receive” a whopping $4.6M for the promotion of ALKM by a group calling themselves “LaLuna Services, Inc.”
If the group’s past exploits are any indicator, the stock is likely to fall flat after its rapid upward surge, and runs a real risk of being halted by the SEC (like their next most recent play, PGFY). For that reason, we would categorize ALKM as extremely high-risk moving forward, but with large funding of that nature behind the promotion, a continuation of momentum into today does remain a possibility.
Regardless of what happens from here, we’ll chalk up our happenstance inclusion of ALKM in yesterday’s email as a big win!
