The LATEST company to enter the 4th Quadrant…

Fire. We still use it just like the first caveman did.

There’ve been no significant advancements in fire in, well… forever!

Hard to believe, isn’t it?

With the inside scoop on recent testing, though, fire will never be the same.

I really don’t want to write an article for thousands of folks about a tiny little company that has already run up in price, and that has been teased before, but a lot of readers are asking about this latest pitch from Louis Basenese so I thought I should get a quick answer out for the Irregulars, at least.

His pitch is that he chooses “Fourth Quadrant” stocks for his Microcap Tech Trader service, stocks that are just a product launch or a big order away from taking off for dramatic gains. He gives several examples, all of which did have substantial runs in price after Basenese touted them (and after we covered them, too, in revealing his “secret” stocks) — though it’s always hard to pinpoint exactly why a little sub-$100 million market cap stock jumps up in price. Is Basenese right that these are exciting tech companies driven by company-changing developments, or is it just that the attention his tens of thousands of subscribers bring to a tiny story stock, combined with chatter from folks like yours truly that helps introduce the stock to new investors, overwhelms the available shares? I suspect it’s a bit of both.

And yes, all three of the examples he gives are stocks that had a big run after and during his recommendations — but they’ve also all fallen back down, in some cases quite dramatically. If you want to check up on them, they were Uni-Pixel (UNXL), which he teased and touted in the summer of 2011 when it was around $8. It did shoot up dramatically to near $40 but then collapsed pretty quickly as well, back down to under $12 today; mobile security firm Imageware (IWSY), which he touted early this past Summer and helped drive from $1.50 or so up to $2.50+, and it’s now back down at $1.80; and Parametric Sound (PAMT), which he first started teasing in the Summer of 2012 at around $10, it fell to $5 then shot up to $20 and now is back to, well, $11.

So what will happen with this ...
