There were plenty of deals to be had on Black Friday but small cap stocks E-Debit Global Corporation (PINK: WSHE), Truli Media Group (PINK: TRLI) and Intelligent Living Corp. (PINK: ILVC) in particular were on special offer in various investment newsletters. However and as with many a Black Friday deal, looks can be deceiving to put it mildly. With that in mind, are small cap stocks E-Debit Global Corporation, Truli Media Group and Intelligent Living Corp. good deals for investors or traders? Here is a quick reality check:
E-Debit Global Corporation (PINK: WSHE) Is Undergoing a Reorganization
E-Debit Global Corporation’s subsidiary Westsphere Systems Inc. securely acquires, authenticates, routs, switches, authorizes and settles financial transactions across multiple channels whether the choice of payment is gift card, debit or prepaid card or credit card. According to various disclosures, transactions of $20k, $50k and $150k have or will occur for the mention of E-Debit Global Corporation in various investment newsletters. On Friday, E-Debit Global Corporation fell 28% on the OCTQB to $0.009 (WSHE has a 52 week trading range of up to $0.05 a share) for a market cap of $2.98 million. However, the stock is still up 100% since the start of the year thanks to a recent spike but its also still down 70% since early 2011. E-Debit Global Corporation had announced at the end of August that it will be doing a corporate reorganization with a further announcement about a week ago that it was undertaking the first stages of this reorganization. E-Debit Global Corporation could probably use some reorganization as while it has produced revenues of $605k (most recent quarter), $609k and $609k so far this year and revenues of $3,346k (2011), $3,973k (2010) and $3,645k (2009) for the past three years, it has also produced net losses of $220k (most recent quarter), $29k and $308k plus $1,096k (2011), $1,153k (2010) and $1,288k (2009) plus had $1,170k in cash to cover $3,524k in current liabilities at the end of September. That’s not exactly great but better than many small cap OTC stocks as at least there are revenues and cash on the books.
Truli Media Group (PINK: TRLI): Should Investors Have Faith?
Truli Media Group is led by an experienced team of industry and ministry leaders that collectively aggregate family-friendly, faith-based Christian content, media, music, film and IPTV (Internet Protocol TV) programming and manage a platform for collaborative, social networking amongst members of the Christian community worldwide, allowing them to share, communicate and deepen their faith together. According to various disclosures, transaction of $3.5k and $7.5k have occurred to mention Truli Media Group in various investment newsletters. On Friday, Truli Media Group rose 9.09% on the OCTQB to $0.36 (TRLI has a 52 week trading range of $0.20 to $1.20 a share) for a market cap of $18 million plus the stock is down 52% since September. Truli Media Group has been rather busy with press releases this month but it also only began trading as a fully SEC reporting public company on the OTCBB back in September through a reverse merger with S.A. Recovery (OTCBB: SARY). Truli Media Group also points out that annual sales in the US Christian retail industry are $4.3 billion while international sales are estimated to be around $4.5 billion or more. However, I can’t be sure if the financials posted on Yahoo! Finance or Google Finance are for Truli Media Group or S.A. Recovery and either way, they aren’t particularly excited. That means investors should probably wait for a new financial filing to be made.
Intelligent Living Corp. (PINK: ILVC) Might Be Worth Watching By Traders
Intelligent Living Corp., through its wholly owned subsidiary MCM Integrated Technologies, Ltd. (MCM), specializes in designing, supplying, installing, upgrading and servicing control and automation solutions that include energy use monitoring and conservation systems, security and access control systems, lighting control systems, heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) and environmental controls and distributed audio/video systems. According to various disclosures, no compensation has been paid for the recent mentions of Intelligent Living Corp. in various investment newsletters but one group had been paid $7.5k from an unrelated third party for a profile about the small cap. On Friday, Intelligent Living Corp. rose 5.26% on the OCTQB to $0.04 (ILVC has a 52 week trading range of up to $1.01 a share) for a market cap of around $512k plus the stock is up 769.6% since late June. Intelligent Living Corp. has also been rather quiet and has issued a press release since the end of last August when it issued an update to mention “advanced negotiations with a coastal First Nations community” for the providing of engineering and design build services for the construction of rental accommodation and single family housing. No further updates have been given. On the financial front, Intelligent Living Corp. reported $25k in revenue and a net loss of $8k for the first fiscal quarter of the year and revenues of $292k (fiscal 2012), $345k (fiscal 2011) and $234k (fiscal 2010) along with net losses of $560k (fiscal 2012), $578k (fiscal 2011) and $212k (fiscal 2010) plus it had $34k to cover $1,256k in current liabilities at the end of August. That’s not too exciting but perhaps traders might want to keep an eye on the stock in case its about to be promoted again.
The Bottom Line. Small cap investors with a long-term time horizon may want to keep an eye on both E-Debit Global Corporation and Truli Media Group while traders should watch Intelligent Living Corp. in case its due for another round of promotional activity now that Thanksgiving is done with.
