Market Comment

In our opinion (guess might be the right word) yesterday was total capitulation day. The market looked like it had finally put in a good bottom on Tuesday, and stocks were beginning to rebound with the NASDAQ opening 80 points higher than Wednesday's close.

Then the news came out on the terrorist attack on our Navy ship, and the market was torpedoed. The NASDAQ turned around more than 180 points to the downside. Simultaneously small stocks experienced total capitulation. The Trading Alert we issued Wednesday night had started up nicely and was looking good. When the the sell off began the stock dropped like a rock on big volume. This is why we always set a stop loss on Trading Alerts. If you followed our advice you should only have lost a little money.

The lower we go the harder we will bounce. There are boatloads of cash on the sidelines just waiting for the bottom. The Fed is almost certain to start lowering interest rates after the Election. Consumer spending has been fueling our economic expansion, but the market is telling us retail spending is over. Even powerhouse Home Depot (NYSE: HD) issued an earnings warning yesterday. Stocks trade based on expectations over the next six months, and nearly all retail stocks are trading at 52 week lows, most cut in half this year.

If we are right Thursday should have been the climactic sell-off with margin calls hurting stocks everywhere. Next week we will publish a list of larger cap stocks we believe will rebound, and it should start now.

Today's edition has two great ideas for our valued members: If you choose to act we will save you money on your long distance service and hopefully make you money in the market. If you decide to invest please set a tight stop loss in the event of another down draft in the NASDAQ.
 

GTC Telecom (OTC BB: GTCC)

Our mission is to find unique values on behalf of our members. Today's edition offers a two-for-one opportunity. When we first looked at GTC Telecom we were only interested in the stock side of the opportunity. When we started discussing their business model we couldn't believe the low rates they offered on long distance service with no hidden charges or strings attached.

We suggested to the company putting together a special offer for our valued members, and have come up with a very compelling two pronged approach. Invest in the stock to make money, use their long distance service to save money, or do both.

GTC Telecom is a long distance company located in Costa Mesa, California. The company recently announced year end results. Revenues were up 1600% from the previous year.74 million minutes of long distance time were sold, up from 1.7 million minutes of usage in fiscal 1999.

Their growth has been fueled by a great deal of high profile publicity on their very low long distance rates. GTC Telecom sells long distance service for $.05 per minute, the lowest price we know of anywhere!!!!!!!!!

This year GTC Telecom received a great deal of positive publicity due to these very low rates. Here is a list of publications that have been favorable on their long distance service:

Furthermore, management informs us that due to their prolific growth, the company is on the verge of turning cash flow positive for the first time in their history. The company is also trading at about 1x Annual Revenues, which is 1/2 the industry average. As evidenced by the press release below, the company's growth is prolific. On that basis, and assuming the NASDAQ will continue to due for a bounce, here is your Trading Alert on GTC Telecom:

  • Buy up to $7/8
  • Set Your Stop at $.44 (all time low)
  • Look for the stock to rebound to $1.04 (October's high and a double from closing price). If the stock can break through $1.04, it could go on to $1.50 (300% from today's close).

2000% INCREASE IN USAGE IN THE 1st QUARTER -vs.- SAME PERIOD LAST YEAR REPORTED BY GTC TELECOM
*****

Company Reports Over 44 Million Minutes of Usage 

COSTA MESA, CA – October 13, 2000 - GTC Telecom (OTCBB:GTCC) today announced that the Company has provided over 44 million minutes of long distance and international usage in the 1st quarter ended September 30, 2000 as compared to usage of less than 2.1 million minutes for the same quarter last year. 

Paul Sandhu, CEO of GTC Telecom commented, “This growth in usage continues to show the strong demand for GTC’s products.  As the Company reaches the point of being cash-flow positive, we will be looking to spur that growth rate even more significantly. In addition, we will also be looking to leverage our cash-flow into more high growth and high margin areas.  This means that GTC will be investigating further areas of expansion similar to our venture into the wireless arena in 2000.  GTC continually searches for ways to leverage profitability while simultaneously rounding out our product bundles to meet the consumer’s telecom needs and demands.”

Sandhu continued, “As we approach the level of being cash flow positive, we are very excited about the future of not only GTC Telecom as a company but in seeking out and providing new technologies as a whole.  With our revenue and minute projections, we believe that GTC is on track for a record 2nd quarter.”
