Plandai (PLPL) Gets $13 Million

It’s Been Lots of Fun Lately

Winner #4 in the last 30 days should be dished up post open today, and I couldn’t be more excited about the way things are going. In case you haven’t been paying attention of late, here’s three stocks I’ve been covering that have dished you up monster profits if you invested recently:

  • Vringo (AMEX: VRNG): Introduced May 1st, 2011 at $1.50, closed Friday at $3.62 for a 141% gain.
  • Liberator (OTC: LUVU): Introduced January 8, 2012 at $.15, closed Friday at $.44 for a 193% gain.
  • Luxeyard (OTC: LUXR): Introduced April 11, 2012 at $.80, closed Friday at $1.70 for a 112.5% gain.

I know these gains seem extraordinary, and they are. I know there have also been a few losers sprinkled in over that time frame, and there have been. However, these are real returns, and you can just click on the dates, read the original editions, and look at where the stocks are now.

That’s really good news, but there’s great news today as well. I’m as near as certain as I can be that I’ll be adding a 4th recent idea to that extraordinary list based on the pre-open news from one of the other followings.

Please tell me you already own this one. If not, it’s probably not too late. I don’t know where the stock will open or even if it will open a lot higher than Friday’s close. However, today’s news turns the Plandai (OTC BB: PLPL) dream into a reality, and I suspect the stock is poised to rock.

Read on- only if you like making money….

Plandai (PLPL) Gets Its $13 Million; Game On

Lest you think the health food sector has not been hot of late, consider the following:

  • Annie’s (NYSE: BNNY); organic pasta maker- came public at $19 on March 28th- 30 days later the stock hit $44 for a 131% return
  • Whole Foods (NYSE: WFM): the best of breed organic grocery store chain has traded from $10 to $85 in the last 3 years- 750% return
  • Fresh Market (NYSE: TM): the second largest organic grocer- from $32 to $52 in the last year – 62% gain
  • Hain Celestial (NASDAQ: HAIN): natural and organic food manufacturer was $16 a year ago- $45 now – 182% in the last 18 months
  • Monster Beverage (NASDAQ: MNST): Formerly Hansen’s natural sodas- $20 to $64 in the past year- 220% in the last 15 month.

So, lest you think this sector is not smoking hot- just look at those numbers and I believe you’ll see it differently.

Identifying the up and coming small stocks in a hot sector can yield remarkable returns.

Today, before the market opened, Plandai Biotech (PLPL)- a stock I featured back on March 26th, announced a watershed event and one that I am very certain will add PLPL to the big winners list featured in the first section.

Rather than a full review of what the company does, I’ll simply reference my initial presentation if you want all the details. The March 26th edition tells you all you need to know. The stock was $.25 that day, and closed at $.28 on Friday- so there’s still plenty of upside.

The quick over view- Plandai (PLPL) is a combination agricultural/biotech technology company. The company’s founders have developed a revolutionary new technique for super charging Green Tea Extract- a food product in huge demand. Rather than license, they plan to grow tea, process extract, and sell it to major beverage companies to maximize their profit potential.

Today, before the market opened, the PLPL horses left the gate. The company has a 49 year lease on 8500 acres in prime South African tea growing country, but needed money to start growing and to build their processing plant.

Today, PLPL disclosed it had finally gotten the long awaited 100 million Rand ($13 Million US dollars) low cost loan from the South African Land Bank- an agency of the South African government.

The terms of the loan are remarkable- they pay .5% interest- yes, that’s 1/2 percent. They don’t have to make a payment for 25 months. It’s secured by the assets of the company and agricultural receivables. One subsidiary must share 15% of profits somewhere down the road.

At $.27, the stock reflected a company with interesting and exciting technology, but no money to implement its strategies.

This is a resounding endorsement of the company from the South African government. Land must be cleared, tea must be grown, and production equipment must be acquired, assembled, and producing.

Can you imagine owning this stock somewhere down the road when they start getting purchase orders from major international names in the healthy beverage industry?

You’re getting this information on PLPL before anyone. The company has filed this information with the SEC, but hasn’t put out a formal press release yet. I’m sure that’s to follow.

By the time you read this, I have no idea where the stock will be trading. If the market hasn’t jumped on it, you might be able to acquire shares at $.30 or under.

Here’s what I know. The company announced this funding from the South African government in January, and the stock ran up to $.60. Then there were complications, and it took 3 more months to close the transaction.

A return to $.60 would be a cool double from Friday’s levels. Regardless of what happens in reaction to the news in the short term, I am certain PLPL will now join the ranks of the big wins listed in the first section of today’s edition.

Much more to come on PLPL.

All The Tea In China: Plandia Bio (PLPL)

All The Tea In China

All the Tea in China is no longer All the Tea in China. I’m sure you’re wondering what the heck I’m talking about.

China is where they invented the stuff, and it’s been consumed as an enjoyable beverage with some perceived positive side effects for 5,000 years. In the last 20 years, scientists have started to understand the very powerful healthy side effects Green Tea extract delivers to the body- therefore, while the euphemism“All The Tea in China” used to mean a whole bunch of tea- about all there was in the world, it’s no longer the case. Tea- more importantly tea extracts- have spread globally, and all the Tea is no longer In China.

There is more tea consumed globally than any other individual beverage. The only liquid with higher human consumption is water. Only about 2.9 million tons of tea are grown annually around the world. The beverage was discovered about 5,000 years ago by Shan Nong, a Chinese Emperor, in 2737 BC. Like many of the world’s great discoveries, it happened by accident. A few leaves fell into his drinking water as it was being boiled, and he is said to have enjoyed the alluring aroma and taste.

Western cultures have only consumed tea for the last 500 years as trade expanded between East and West.

Tea has taken on a whole new persona in the last 10 years as research has proven the therapeutic value of tea has long been underestimated. Tea extracts, through multiple clinical trials, have now been proven to extend life, reduce medical costs, decrease weight, increase metabolism, decrease stress, and increase anti oxidants.

The demand for healthier alternatives is proven out by two outstanding companies in this sector:

  • GNC (NYSE: GNC): This retail chain has grown to 5849 US stores, and 504 International stores generating about $1.2 billon in annual revenues.
  • Royal DSM (NYSE Euronext N.V) is a global science based has 22,000 employees and annual sales of $11.8 billion. Royal DSM manufactures a Green Tea Extract that is used in many US based products.

Green tea extracts have become a prominent part of the businesses of many of these health product companies. There are six major manufacturers of Green Tea Extract globally, and the stuff sells for anywhere from $80 per kilo to $540 per kilo.

Today’s new idea has the most exciting new technology to ever come along in this sector. Plandia Biotechnology (PLPL) has developed an extraction process for Green Tea Extracts that delivers many times the health benefits of the status quo.

Enter Plandia Biotechnology Inc (OTC BB: PLPL): Superior Technology

PLPL is a complicated story. However, the way you can make money in the short term is very simple.

Here’s the 30,000 ft overview. A couple of pHd scientists spent the last 10 years developing new extraction technology that creates by far the best green tea extract known to man. In several studies it has proven to be far and away the most “Bioavailble” green tea extract. About 2 ounces of their extract provides the same benefit you would expect from a gallon of the other guy’s stuff.

In order to begin commercialization using this revolutionary new technology, the company ventured to one of the best places on Planet Earth to grow green tea. It also happens to have a very favorable political climate- money is available from the government.

The tea growing region of South Africa has a 70% unemployment rate and tea plantations have grown fallow since Apartheid. Native South Africans took back their plantations, but they didn’t have the skills or resources to operate them.

At the end of January PLPL received a formal commitment from the Land and Agricultural Development Bank of South Africa for a 100 Million Rand debt financing (about $13 million).

The capital will be used to restore 300 hectares of prime green tea farm land in South Africa. This land is absolutely ideal for this crop. Nine months of the year green tea can be grown and harvested every 19 days.

A smaller portion of the funds will be used to restore the tea growth. The larger portion of the funds will be used to build and install PLPL’s proprietary Green Tea Extraction technology, which is patented and proven out in many scientific studies.

The loans have not closed as of this time. The Land Bank, which is a quasi government agency in South Africa assigned to task of making loans that will put people to work, has required the company to restructure the loans so they could be divided up equitably amongst the company’s subsidiaries. To read the SEC filing that describes the delay on funding and the subsequent completion of the requirements, simply click here.

140% Upside

Since I’m going to be covering this one for the next 6 months, I’m going to leave out a lot of information I’ll save for future editions.

I could write volumes on the revolutionary new Green Tea Extract method the company has devised and patented. When seen to fruition, this extract will be far more “Bioavailable” to the human body (meaning the body will absorb a far higher percentage), and be pharmaceutical quality. Lots more on this in future editions.

However, making money in the short term is a very simple matter, and the chart tells us exactly what’s likely to happen.

PLPL announced the signed commitment for the capital from the Land Bank at the end of January. As you can see from this chart, the stock traded up to $.60 on the news.

The closing of the financing has been delayed, and the stock is now $.25.

If you invest in this stock today at about $.25 while it’s at the very low end of it’s trading range, and wait until the company gets the funding closed, the stock is likely to head back to the $.60 level- where it was when the market expected the loan to close in the short term.

Hence- 140% on your money from today’s levels if and when it happens.

While no one can use the word “guarantee” with regard to the closing of the loan, I have interviewed CEO Roger Duffield extensively from South Africa, and reviewed last week’s SEC filing.

I believe it’s highly likely this loan will close, and the company will immediately begin the process of restoring these lands to productivity and assembling the required equipment for their amazing extraction process.

There you have it- $.25 today. Back to $.60 on the news, which could come any day. There’s not much technical downside as the stock is trading very close to its lowest historical level.

Once the funds have been secured, we can take a much harder look at the value of Green Tea Extract, and in particular PLPL’s proprietary technology that makes for the highest grade and most bioavailable Green Tea Extract in history.

I would suggest accumulating at around $.25 with a short term price target of $.60 and an SSL of $.15.

Take your position, then hold for the news, which will be just the beginning of this story, and the start of a highly profitable saga.
