There are literally hundred’s of stock promoters making it’s tricky to keep track of them all. With that being said the vast majority are crap with a terrible track record. Only a handful of them have the ability to bring decent volume to a stock, making it worthwhile to buy or short sell. The landscape is constantly changing with big-time promoters getting shut-down by the SEC such as Awesome Penny Stocks, Best Damn Penny Stocks and Victory Mark Corp. Two / three years ago it wasn’t difficult to make money buying pre-promo’s by discovering details of upcoming promo’s through researching via Google. APS and PennyPic had dozens of “sister websites”, e.g. Pennystockgains.com was a sister site to APS. (It’s important to note that in the past big-time promotions were released on sister sites first).
List of Promoters to follow for 2016
- ElitePennyStock.com – in my opinion is currently the best promoter currently, it has ties to AwesomePennyStocks.
- Stocktips.com – In the past has generated good volume and buying power in their promo’s, although their last pump COLV was a massive disappointment.
- Wall Street Revelator
Use a yopmail as a disposable email address to sign up to their alerts so you can track them. It’s useful to be aware they separate their email lists and don’t email their subscribers all at once. If they have a list of 10,000 emails they might divide it up into 4 lists of 2,500.
Useful Websites for Research
Stockpromoters.com – Follow what websites are advertising what tickers.
EquityFeed.com – Scan to find OTC stocks with abnormal volume. (Look at the bottom of the page to see the filters I use).
Goodetrades.com – This is a great site for research on pumps.
Promotionstocksecrets.com – Premium service to learn inside out about how promotion works, free articles on the site are educational.
I also use SEMrush.com to track how much websites are spending on advertising campaigns on Google. This is paid SEO tool which estimates how much a site is spending on PPC (Pay Per Click) campaigns. They bid on search terms / keywords relevant to their website, like “stocks to buy”, this could keyword could cost $1-$4 a click, the higher you bid the higher you appear on the ads section. E.g. TradeProdigy for July has received 10,422 visitors at a cost of $51,306 and overall are bidding on 3,374 keywords. ($51,306 / 10,422 = $4.92) This means TradeProdigy are paying nearly $5 per visitor, that is a significant amount to spend and results in high quality website traffic which means more people signing up to their alerts. StockoftheWeek.net for July got 17,497 visitors at of cost of $6,214. (17,497 / 6,214 = $2.81) In theory TradeProdigy should be the more effective promoter as they’re paying $2 more per click and received 4210 more visitors.
Here’s a screenshot of an example.
My Equity Feed Filter
(1) Select markets: “OTCBB” & “Pinksheets”
(2) Stock Types: Regular Securities” and “New Issue”
(3) Price: From “$0.01” to “$1.50”;
(4) Volume: From “$5,000” to “$5,000,000”;
(5) Liquidity Movement Action: “Share volume” is “greater” than “2.5” times “20-day volume avg”
The above settings cast a very wide net. For better search results, try minimum “$50,000” $volume and/or “10” times the 20-day volume avg.
