Vringo (AMEX: VRNG): The Big “D” is Imminent

I thought it might be a nice sleepy summer for VRNG, and we could accumulate the stock in the mid $3 range. We will hopefully see it down there again soon, so you can pick it up at a more reasonable level. The stock was up there close to $4.50 yesterday, but today closed at the $3.72 level- so we are headed the right way if you don’t own it.

Back on July 19th VRNG closed its acquisition of Innovate/Protect- which means it’s game on as VRNG goes to court, armed with all the old Lycos technologies in its IP portfolio. In its SEC filings, VRNG describes the transaction as a “reverse merger”- meaning the assets and business of Innovate/Protect now become the primary direction of VRNG. That business is the business of suing the likes of Google, AOL, Target, and a few other giant names. Innovate/Protect owns all the assets of the old Lycos- one of the early stage search engines.

To me, it was rather amazing the stock traded so well in light of this week’s news. The only positive news related to new director Donald Stout- now Chairman of VRNG’s intellectual property committee.

This past week, Stout has become a true David taking down several Goliaths. NTP inc is a company cofounded by Stout- unrelated to VRNG.

However, this past week NTP was richly rewarded after several years of patent infringement battles appeared to pay off big time.

NTP settled with AT&T, Verizon Wireless, Sprint, and T-Mobile- NTP is still going after smart phone manufacturers Apple, Motorola, Palm, LG Electronics, and Samsung.

While the terms of the settlement were undisclosed, the market loved it in the face of some negative news out of VRNG, and bid the stock up to $4.29 on huge volume (7 million shares Tuesday).

Modern day David took down these Goliaths with their massive legal teams- but the true outcome remains unknown. One might assume Stout has earned a gigantic pay day for his efforts. The market certainly did.

I believe this week’s surge will prove short lived as there have been some major negatives this week as well- all related to the Big “D”- D for DILUTION. At some point in the future the public float of VRNG will inevitably be much larger- meaning the stock will become far more cumbersome in terms of moving up the charts.

The other developments this week include the following:

  • VRNG issued approximately 51 million shares in the form of common stock, convertible preferred, and warrants to acquire Innovate/Protect. Formerly boasting a very manageable 14 million shares I&O, it has now ballooned to about 65 million or more fully diluted.
  • VRNG also filed a “shelf registration” to raise $100 million. This means the company will eventually be able to sell any combination of common, preferred, debt, warrants, rights, purchase contracts, or units to raise a maximum of $100 million in any form it wants at any price it wants. Since whatever form any capital takes will somehow end up as free trading shares as soon as funded at whatever price the company deems, this registration statement represents an ominous technical black cloud which could hang over this stock for sometime to come.

In the September/October time frame, Innovate/Protect’s case will be moving to the next stages. This is when I expect the story to really heat up.

In a best case scenario, I expect the stock could be worth about $10 with this new dilution coming into the picture. I’ve read forecasts of $30 per share, which would imply a $2 billion market cap- that’s without raising the $100 million they filed for this week.

Add in the potential $100 million that will certainly take some form of massive dilution, and the picture becomes even murkier.

I still believe this stock should be owned. The market sometimes has the ability to wear blinders when it comes to explosive upside potential- as we have here.

I’m no lawyer, but I know one who’s following the story. These law suits will not likely be worth $2 billion- probably something more like $500 million at best.

My suggestion- accumulate on dips into the $3.25 to $3.50 range.

At present- I’m not a shareholder, just an interested party. I’ll be looking at some call options if the stock trades off.

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.


I’ll be featuring Plandai (PLPL) on today’s BigBizShow at about 12:30PM Eastern, 9:30 AM Pacific. Tune in.

Regency Resource (RSRS): Technically Tasty

Wow: Zero To Hero In Two Weeks

It’s been a bit of a dry spell lately, with a few of my ideas backing up this year and generating losses. That’s the nature of penny stock investing- when you’re hot, you’re really hot. When you’re cold, it seems like winter in Alaska. You might have thought I couldn’t hit my backside with a tennis racquet. So, just when you least expect it….BOOM

On Vringo (AMEX: VRNG)- if you’re a trader, you should take profits. If you own it from my original call of $1.25 a year ago, last Fall at $1.20, or two weeks ago in the mid $2 range, you should be up anywhere from 220% to 60%. In either case, the stock gets hot when news drives it up, and drifts down when it’s quiet. With Monday’s huge gap up on the Mark Cuban news, it’s time to lock in gains and reacquire when it quiets down. The stock will likely fill the gap and head back to $3.

The response to my Luxeyard (OTC BB: LUXR) idea has been overwhelming. I suggested the short term price target of $1- a 25% gain in a few days. Yesterday the stock closed at $1.19 on 3.6 million shares of volume. A new high for both price and volume. Investors love this one. That’s a 50% gain in the first 5 trading days, which I’m of course very pleased about.

LUXR is just getting started, but it’s not going to rocket up like this everyday. As I’ve disclosed, I have a very large position in both free trading shares and restricted shares, all picked up with my own money. I’ve liquidated a small percentage of shares into this rally, but technically the stock sure looks like it wants to go higher. I have the restricted shares for my long term position, so I’m not afraid to lose a little into this frenzy.

If you’ve been watching, you might want to wait for a pullback to get involved. I don’t know. I could be $1.50 today, or it could be $1. Either way, a short term gigantic win for OTC Journal members.

If you missed my interview with the Chairman of Luxeyard on the BigBizShow on Monday morning, just go to www.otcjournal.com, and hit the play button on the video window whenever you’d like.

Penny stocks are very hot right now. I’m looking for technical breakouts, and watching a couple of names. If you’re looking for a good trade, here’s one you can check out right now. Big volume has appeared out of nowhere, and this one might be just getting started.

Read on………

Regency Resources (OTC BB: RSRS): Technically Tasty

Another one is blowing up out of nowhere. I’m a huge fan of the new direction for digital technologies. Consider my last few ideas: iTrackr (IRYS)- despite it not working out; Vringo (VRNG)- a giant win that helps you watch your cell phone ring; and Luxeyard (LUXR)- the new frontier of digital shopping and a giant short term win.

So, when I see a heretofore unknown and unfollwed stock explode with volume after announcing they are acquring a company that is building out media for delivering content to the next generation of Internet TV, it gets my attention.

3D TV did not take off. I don’t think people really cared about having their TV in 3D- I mean, after all, the Hi Def picture we get now is so fantastic there wasn’t enough incentive to switch your TV out.

However, I can’t tell you how many times I wished I could browse on my TV. There’s so much Hi Def programming you can get online, people want to get it to the TV screen.

That’s probably why investors are pouncing on Regency Resources- soon to acquire Digital Distributed Acquisition Corp, a “media based business offering an in-depth portfolio of content for Internet TV distribution” (according to a recent press release).

I dug into the SEC filings and learned RSRS has entered into a binding agreement to merge, but the merger is not closed at this time, which adds a bit of risk to the idea. Without the Digital Distribution company, the company doesn’t have much.

However, the market seems to love it. As you can see from this chart, the intention to acquire DDAC was announced on the 12th. The stock traded 500,000 shares that day, and has now traded nearly 3 million shares in 4 trading days. That’s quite a step up from less than 10,000 shares a day before the acquisition was announced.

The stock has also traded from $.85 to about $1.10, and could be just getting started. I’ve seen a few of these huge volume surges of late, and they all seem to be taking these stocks higher (see LUXR).

I really like this chart. I suggest owning it immediately, but the lack of information about company leads me to also suggest a tighter stop than normal. If the pattern repeats itself I could easily this one finding its way to $1.75 to $2.

Pick it up in this $1.10 range, but use $.90 for your SSL (suggested stop loss). If it trades below $.90, you’re on your own. However, if this volume continues and the stock continues to look this good technically, you might just find yourself notching a $.50 to $.75 gain (45% to 70% gain) against the possibility of a $.20 loss. I’m looking for this one to find these higher levels in the next two weeks.

All the major manufacturers are beginning to introduce pre configured Internet TVs, and someone has to provide the technology and content to make them worth it. Why not RSRS- if for nothing but a trading profit?

New High: Price and Volume on LUXR

There’s no way you can tell me this is not a great chart. It looks perfect, and looks like higher levels are in store. My short term price target of $1, and longer term price target of $3 looks like it’s a distinct possibility- the $1 short term price target appears to be a fait accompli with Friday’s breakout.

And, speaking of the $1 price target, let’s take a quick look at the chart. In the last hour of trading on Friday, the stock broke out on big volume.

Here’s what happened this past week. On Monday, LUXR traded 168,000 shares. Tuesday- 165,000; Wednesday-254,000, Thursday- 259,000, and Friday- get ready- 580,000 shares.

Perhaps more importantly, the $.80 level had acted as a ceiling for the stock. In the last hour of trading on Friday, the stock broke through to the $.90 level. suggesting the market had eaten through the $.80 resistance level, and was finally ready to go higher.

$1 in short order- perhaps even Monday. You might not have believed my hypothesis this stock was indeed 50% undervalued based on registered users. It would appear the market is buying into that hypothesis.

If you don’t own this stock yet you’ve only missed the first 11% move- in the first two days. More to come likely.

If you want a little better understanding of their model and you want to meet the Chairman, I suggest you tune into the BigBizShow on Monday at 12:30 Eastern, 9:30 Pacific.

Instructions above.

As many of you know, I’m the co host of the show every Monday from 12PM to 2PM eastern. The show finds its way onto hundreds of AM radio stations into into about 30 million cable homes throughout the course of the day.

Amir Mireskandari, Chairman of Luxeyard (OTC BB: LUXE), will be interviewed live on the show by Sully and myself. He’ll be discussing the future of retail in general, and discussing some specifics of the Luxeyard business model.

11% in the bag. More to come.

Vringo (AMEX: VRNG) Finds High Profile Sponsorship

It’s likely VRNG – one of my current favorites, will surge Monday. Late in the day it was reported Mark Cuban, owner of the Dallas Mavericks NBA team and well known technology investor, has taken a 7% passive stake in VRNG.

Watch for a surge on Monday on the heels of that news.

Where Are VCs Clamoring To Invest? VRNG Near New High

Where Are VCs Clamoring to Invest?

There’s a new, red hot sector in internet investing, and the Silicon Valley venture capital firms are just flinging money in this direction even faster than Ben Bernake prints the stuff up at the Federal Reserve. Believe me- that’s fast.

Here’s a few eye opening facts:

  • Amazon (NASDAQ: AMZN) bought a company in this sector for $110 million in 2010
  • Nordstrom (NASDAQ: NOBE) bought one for $270 million in 2011
  • American Express (NYSE: AXP) did a 50/50 joint venture valued at $3 billion in May of 2011
  • $70 million just went to one competitor in the sector for under 10% of the company.

Have I got your attention? Here’s more…..

Flash Sales: The New Gold Rush of Silicon Valley

Flash sale sites are the new Gold Rush of Silicon Valley- a place that has seen more than its fair share of gold rushes over the years. Flash sale sites are borne out of the 2008 recession.

When the US was facing a complete financial collapse three years ago, manufacturers and retailers found themselves in the precarious position of having too much inventory laying stagnant in their warehouses and on their shelves.

Retailers can have special sales, but their brick and mortar customer bases are limited to the immediate area. Manufacturers can offer big discounts to retailers- but again- you are limited by the brick and mortar proximity.

eCommerce pioneers came up with the brilliant idea of a Flash Site, and here are the main components:

  • Build a user of base of 1 million plus consumers who are highly motivated by deep discounts on merchandise.
  • Negotiate a very deep discount “bulk” purchase from a manufacturer of some sort of excess inventory.
  • Offer the product to your subscriber base by passing on these huge discounts for a limited time- while the supply of inventory lasts.
  • Move mountains of merchandise in a limited time, thereby freeing up badly needed capital trapped in the manufacturer’s excess inventory.

Needless to say- you have to find products consumers want at a deep discount, and have the registered user base to move the merchandise.

As I stated above, the Silicon Valley VCs are just throwing money in the direction of these companies. Here’s more examples:

  • Gilt Group was recently valued at $1 billion based on an investment made by Goldman Sachs, Pinnacle Ventures, Matrix Partners. Gilt is expected to do an IPO in late 2012.
  • Zulily received $43 million in VC funding last August from Meritech Capital Partners
  • iDeeli just raised $70 million from Kodiak Ventures, Constellation Ventures, and Starvest for just under 10% of the company.
  • OneKingsLane was valued at $440 million in a recent investment by Kleiner Perkins.
  • Fab.com received a capital injection of $40 million from AndresenHorowitz this past December. The financing valued this total start up at $200 million.

So, where is all this fantastic information leading? Glad you asked, because I happen to have the answer.

Believe it or not, there is only one public company in the Flash Sale business, and as compared to the money raised by the names you see listed above and the valuations, this stock is very undervalued.

I’m also personally an investor in this company. I own both free trading shares I’ve purchased, and restricted shares I’ve purchased when I helped finance this company’s growth.

In light of the explosion of interest in the sector, I’m very optimistic about the opportunity to notch some major profits in the near term.

I’ll be introducing the company to you on Thursday- remember- it’s the only Flash Sale Site public company you can participate in today.

Stand by for the 411…. I’ll have all the information, and then you can make your own informed decision.

Vringo (AMEX: VRNG) Trying For New Highs

In case you’re following huge OTC Journal win VRNG (introduced last year at $1.20- now $3.37- the stock has been trying for another new high the last couple of days on some very positive developments.

It’s traded over 1/2 million shares today, down from over 1 million shares yesterday.

The surge in the stock is being fueled by a research report out of Five Star Equities, citing the significant opportunities in the growth of the 4G LTE networks as being significant fuel for companies with services in the sector.

Five Star forecasts LTE Phone shipments will grow 10 fold in 2012, from 6.8 million units in 2011 to 67 million in 2012 globally.

Two companies mentioned in the report that should benefit greatly from the growth of 4G LTE networks and handsets are Zynga (NASDAQ: ZNGA), and Vringo (NYSE: VRNG).

If this company continues receiving this kind of positive press, breakouts to new highs are inevitable.

If the stock pulls back to the $3.15 level, that would be a good time to accumulate. If it softens more and holds $2.50, that would be a great time to pile in with a full position and a tight stop. I would not hesitate to suggest jumping into this one if and when it pulls back to that level.

This stock has gone from quiet and under followed to “In Play”. Several analysts and writers have picked up on the story, and I suspect there’s more to come.

Use a pullback to get positioned.

Vringo Rings the Profit Bell

We’re making some real progress on this alert already. Remember, the last time I published on Vringo (AMEX: VRNG), it took a week or so to notch a 44% gain. Nevertheless, as you can see from the chart, yesterday’s opening trades were at $1.36. The high print today has been $1.69.

From yesterday’s opening trade, to today’s high trade, there’s a 24% move. The only way to have captured that move would have been to trade into the stock right at yesterday’s open, then leave an open, good-till-cancelled limit order to sell 20% higher. You would have scalped a beautiful profit.

If there’s some follow up news soon, we’ll likely see a repeat of the 50% we made on the stock back in May. Stand by, and keep your SSL in place. As long as the highs keeping getting higher each day, and the lows get higher, it’s going to be a money maker.

Now- let me ask you this. There are highly successful small business all over the country installing residential solar power. It might not be so great in Seattle, but if you live in Phoenix you can all but eliminate your air conditioning bill and get a tax incentive for installing the systems.

Suppose there were a company that could offer those same cost savings using a different form of renewable energy, and suppose that company was publicly traded?

Also, suppose that company’s stock had been literally cut down to 1/3 of last May’s price where it traded millions of shares, has been sideways for 2 months, and is ready to come charging back up the charts?

If these kinds of low risk entry points on very hot stocks interests you, stand by for a new idea post close tomorrow. I see this one being Deja Vu all over again. It was red hot in the spring, and I believe it will be red hot again- very soon.  As usual, OTC Journal subscribers get the pole position.

V’Ringing the Profit Bell: Again- With A FaceBook AP

Ever feed a stray cat? What happens? The cat shows up again for a repeat. Cats know how to survive and prosper anywhere, and I know how to survive and prosper in the world of small and microcap stocks.

So, like the cat who shows up for its next meal, I’m hungry, and going back to the same stock for another meal of profits.

Vringo (AMEX: VRNG) was very good to us the first time around, had a couple of tough months, and now appears to be ready to pounce to higher levels once again. These mobile stories are just growing like weeds, and VRNG is right in the middle of the content revolution finding its way to your cell phone.

I first featured VRNG back on Sunday, May 1st. I called it the company that allows you to "Watch My Cell Phone Ring". VRNG has spent years developing video technology that allows callers to "push" unique video content to other smart phones when they call. The video content becomes the ring tone the recipient hears and sees.

For example, your daughter could record a short video message- something like "Hi Dad, it’s your daughter Laura calling". When she calls, the video/audio message becomes the ring tone. Clips from movies can be pushed as well. It’s the first technology I’ve even seen that allows the sender to set the ring tone, and the ring tone can be video/audio. Fantastic stuff.

Obviously, it doesn’t work on every cell phone. It has to be a more advanced hi-tech phone. The company has teamed up with major cell carriers and content providers all over the globe- especially in the Far East and on the India sub continent where smart phone use is far advanced as compared to the US.

The service is now available to millions of users through multiple mobile carriers in India. Their APs are being rapidly adopted in Malaysia. Adoption is starting to gain momentum.

The major marketing push for VRNG’s visual ring tones started over the summer, and in Malaysia, where users have limited access to computers and tend to rely more on the Smart Phones and their excellent networks, VRNG’s product has already been downloaded by 300,000 users.

As their technology started being adopted, there have been a couple other corporate developments- VRNG recently closed a $2.5 million financing with Silicon Valley vc firms Benchmark Capital and DAG Ventures, and received an extension through year end from the NYSE AMEX to meet their requirements for continued listing- all good stuff. But here’s the really big news:

VRNG is starting the deployment of a new killer ap: The "Facetone", which of course integrates with a Facebook Page. Read on………

Enter "Facetones"- the Killer VRNG AP

VRNG’s Facetone is one very cool product, and I wouldn’t be surprised to see this one become highly viral- in fact- it already is.

It was just released last week for U.S. users through Verizon’s V Cast store- it now works with many Verizon phones, and VRNG is working on the iPhone version right now. Click Here to check it out.

Here’s what this AP does. When you load the AP into your phone, it goes into your contact list, and matches all of your contacts with their Facebook Page.

Now, when you are talking to one of your contacts on your Smart Phone, all the most current pictures and postings from their Facebook Page scroll by on your screen. Vice versa- all of your latest Facebook Content scrolls by on their screen even if they don’t have the AP loaded into their phone.

Delivering the content is pretty cool, but the technology side of this is more difficult than you think. Almost all Smart Phones go into a shut down mode of all other applications when you’re speaking on the phone. FaceTones overrides the shut down, and allows this content to appear on the screen.

This new form of social media now allows you to catch up with someone’s latest Facebook entries while you’re actually talking to them from anywhere. That’s what I call cool stuff. Verizon is advertising it as a $2.99 AP, or $.99 per month if you prefer.

Most other carriers are also offering a free version with advertising content embedded.

The first 100,000 of these APs have already been downloaded, and this is going catching on very quickly. With each call, the other party receives a solicitation to download the AP, so as it becomes more widespread, it will be become highly viral. VRNG reports 30% of the downloads are coming from completely unidentified sources, which makes them users who experienced the AP elsewhere.

Last week, VRNG announced the AP was available on Verizon, and now you’ll see why I believe we might be in for a repeat of the 50% return we experienced on this one back in May.

As you can see from the chart, on the news the stock gapped up from $1.32 to $1.90 at the open.

And, what do I keep saying about gaps in a chart? Gaps are a vacuum, and nature always tries to fill a vacuum. Therefore, VRNG becomes a buy again when the gap from last week gets filled.

As you can see from this chart, the stock has come back and nearly filled this gap. Time to start climbing again, and I expect the stock to do so on the heels of today’s pre open news. Read on again…… 

Vringo (AMEX: VRNG) Doubles Down in Malaysia

Celcom is Malaysia’s biggest mobile service provider, and the one VRNG didn’t have. VRNG has Celcom now, as was announced just before the market opened today.

Celcom is the biggest in Malaysia, boasting 11 million customers, and its network reaches 98% of the population. Celcom is part of the Axiata Group of Companies that reaches 160 million customers across 10 Asian nations.

Here’s what I find interesting. VRNG’s APs get marketed by the second largest mobile carrier in Malaysia. 300,000 downloads later, all of a sudden Celcom, the largest carrier in Malaysia, is offering their APs as well.

What’s next? Well- there’s two distinct and not totally separate possibilities. Since Celcom is part of a group, how about the possibility of expanding to the other 10 mobile service providers in the group, and reaching 160 million customers instead of 11 million?

Also, now that Verizon has picked up the VRNG AP, could other US based carriers be far behind?

The New York Times called VRNG "the next big thing in ringtones". USA Today said their service has "to be seen to be believed".

Here’s how I see this. VRNG has a lot of momentum. Revenues are starting to climb. Their APs are highly creative and in demand. There’s already be 500,000 downloads of their services combined just since I started covering the company. Volume is coming back into the stock. Market conditions are improving. Everything you could ever want in a stock is happening here.

Mobile and Social are two of the hottest growth areas in the market. This company has combined them both.

VRNG closed at $1.42 yesterday. I don’t know where it will open today. The highs are now starting to get higher, and the lows are also getting higher. That’s known as an UPTREND.

I suspect the stock can easily get back to last week’s high, and possibly push on from there if there’s more news behind today’s.

Accumulate up to $1.60. Short term target: last week’s high or $1.90. Longer term look for the former high of $2.60 (83% higher than Monday’s close). Looking a year down the road? $5 is possible. SSL: $1.30.

This one could really rock.
