My bearish calls have been pretty accurate over the last couple months. Life is not too good right now if you were an investor in Cellcyte Genetics (OTC BB: CCYG), Noble Roman’s (OTC BB: NROM), or Octillion (OTC BB: OCTL). After having almost doubled since I wrote about it, Cellcyte has now fallen 90%. Noble Roman’s is down over 40% since I first wrote about it. Octillion is down over 60% since I wrote about it.
Home Solutions of America (OTC: HSOA) is down over 80% since I first highlighted questions regarding fraud. Skinns (OTC BB: SKNN) is down 30% since I called its whole business ‘silly‘ while praising the quality of management. My old favorite, Continental Fuels (OTC BB: CFUL), is down 25% since the most recent time I mentioned how overvalued it was.
My recent positive calls have been few and far between. I was positive on TSR Inc. [[tsri]] and I still am. It is down only slightly since I wrote about it in mid-December, about in line with the market. Also, my positive call on Tecumsah [[tecua]] has been a good call.
While basking in my glory, I should also highlight my painfully bad call on ACA from last August, after which it fell 90%. (I blame this on my call being on video and not in writing.) In my defense, I did say that I did not understand the company enough to invest in it. IDO Security (OTC BB: IDOI) has also been a bad call. Since I wrote about its promotion by junk fax the stock is up over 40%. It will eventually go back down, however.
Disclosure: I am long TSRI and have no other position in any stock mentioned. I have an iron-clad disclosure policy.
