Starting last Friday people on Twitter started reporting receiving hard mailers promoting Windstream Technologies (WSTI). So far there has been no email or online promotion of the stock that I am aware of. I posted on Twitter a few times about the promotion; Tim Sykes blogged about it earlier today. Considering the high stock price and large market cap and relatively high volume I think it very likely that this pump will dump big within the next week.

Promoter: Mandarin Media / Wall Street Revelator / Andrew Carpenter

Previous closing price: $1.45

How do you get on these junk mailing lists?
I only rarely get these, but I follow people on Twitter who do get them or who watch for them.
How important do you think a good knowledge of technical analysis is when shorting these pumps?
Some knowledge of technical support is very useful but you don’t need to know more than the basics.
I bot in at $1.60. . about $2000.00. . so, you think it’s a scam? Shameful. They say they have all these distribution agreements overseas. Why isn’t the SEC on this if it’s a fraud?
It takes the SEC time to investigate and plenty of times they never obtain enough evidence to prove fraud. In cases where the SEC suspends trading in a stock it usually takes them a few weeks after the pump starts. WSTI looks like it could go parabolic today — but I do think that it will have a big drop within a couple days if not later today.
Don’t just read the press releases. All penny stocks can put out nice-sounding PRs. Look at the company’s SEC filings — here is the most recent 10-Q: http://www.otcmarkets.com/edgar/GetFilingHtml?FilingID=9984573
While WSTI does look like a ‘real’ company and not just a shell (unlike some pumps like VOIL), they have large losses, negative book value, and an obscenely large market cap.
I have had trouble finding borrows for stocks like WSTI. I use Interactive Brokers and put in sell orders above the price and I get this message that they will need to “locate” shares. For OTC, they are rarely located for me. What is the trick for you to find/get your borrows?
Simply put, IB has not had borrows on big pumps recently. They had only a few thousand shares of WSTI ever and those were taken by StockRealist early in premarket one day. VOIL I was only able to short 1600 shares at IB and I don’t know anyone else who was able to short it at IB.
I intend shortly to enroll in the Millionaire challenge. Have been watching Tim for 5 yrs now. I was looking at an email from FDM(five dollar movers) for Basta holdings Helicopter leasing Co in Ft. Lauderdale Fla. (what I consider a home for P&D’s. They had a good financial report from Murphy Analytics (viewed him on utube) and he got 3grand from Tower Securities in the phillipines for it. Murphy seems to take money to give a good analysis based solely on company info. and forward looking stmts. P&D?. And a good report from our good friends at “The Wall Street Revelator” another pumper? looks like it. And that linked me to you and to Tim. And this is how I found your website and u are now in my favorite bookmarks. I look forward to working with you and Tim and Tyler soon. Oh, what do you think about Basta? email addr firstname.lastname@example.org
BTW did you get in on the Windstream P&D? A 65cent stock that pumped to 2.07 june 26th and crashed to .19 now?
Sorry, I see you did short 1600 shares. OK
I would never have touched this stock if I had not seen the technology (which I had no idea what it was prior to the literature arriving in the mail, just saw it on a blast berm at my NG base here in Indiana). I’ve been burned on a P&D before (small change). In hindsight, I would’ve waited until it was down in the .10 range (last few months) and bought a few thousand shares and watched it rise realistically. Own about 600 shares, and still upside down about 50% (about $150, again, chump change).
I bought wsti stock solely on your advise. Why is the stock presently worth one penny, when on paper the stock looks a fantastic buy???????. I own based on your article a large no of shares. Please kindly reply..
You must not be very intelligent. This post is over a year old and the pump is long over and one of the first things I say is “Considering the high stock price and large market cap and relatively high volume I think it very likely that this pump will dump big within the next week.”
