Friday File part 1: “Accidental Discovery” and a 10-Cent Stock?

By Travis Johnson, Stock Gumshoe, June 26, 2020

I saved this teaser pitch to cover for you, dear Irregulars… and I confess that it’s mostly because covering a company this tiny and illiquid for our larger group of free readers feels a little bit irresponsible. Even if I say cynical or skeptical things about a stock, talking to thousands of my closest friends about it all at once seems likely to have a huge impact on the stock price.

I know, I know, we’re all adults and you can certainly make your own decisions… but I would feel a little guilty if I covered the stock and our attention caused it to create a “pump and dump” opening for somebody.

“An ‘Accidental Discovery’ Is About To Shock the Market…

“And Turn This 10-Cent Stock into the Biggest Payout of my Career”

He likens the “accident” here to Viagra, the erectile disfunction pill that was originally intended to be a blood pressure treatment but went on to blockbuster status and a starring role in our culture. More from the ad…

“… dozens more ‘lucky accidents’ have gone on to generate millions, even billions in profits.

“And I am all but certain I’ve found a new one.
