On Friday, small cap stocks Unique Pizza & Subs (PINK:
UPZS), Double Crown Resources (PINK: DDCC) and
Warrior Girl Corp (PINK: WRGL) were all sinking hard despite
recent (paid for) appearances in various investment newsletters or emails.
Specifically, Unique Pizza & Subs fell 26.83%, Double Crown Resources fell
15.2% and Warrior Girl Corp fell 22.35%. That could mean the paid promotions
either failed to ignite interest in these small cap stocks or the money has
already run out. With that in mind, here is a quick look at what might be right
or wrong about these small cap stocks:
Unique Pizza & Subs (PINK: UPZS) Has a Pending Merger (But Acts
as if the Deal is Done)
Unique Pizza & Subs is an all-natural pizza restaurant chain offering
fresh, natural and healthier foods at its eco-friendly locations worldwide after
it a definitive agreement to acquire privately held Pizza Fusion Holdings was
signed in August 2012. On Friday, Unique Pizza & Subs sank 26.83% to $0.012
for a market cap of $1.06 million plus UPZS is down 81.8% over the past year and
down 99.9% over the past five years according to Google Finance.
What’s the Catch With Unique Pizza & Subs? According to
various disclosures, transactions of $5k and $30k have occurred to mention
Unique Pizza & Subs in various investment newsletters. On Tuesday, Unique
Pizza & Subs announced that Pizza Fusion Master Franchisor, Samir Group,
Inc. has signed an agreement with Food Fusion Est. to open up to 25 Pizza Fusion
locations throughout the United Arab Emirates. However, investors need to
remember the merger between Unique Pizza & Subs and Pizza Fusion Holdings is
still pending and will close upon fulfillment of the terms of the merger
agreement – meaning investors might want to wait until the ink is completely dry
before jumping in. Likewise, there aren’t any up-to-date financials for Unique
Pizza & Subs available – another reason to be cautious.
Double Crown Resources (PINK: DDCC) Is On Television
Double Crown Resources is a natural resource exploration and development
company holding a 100% interest in the McNab molybdenum property located in
Southwest, British Columbia, and the Bateman gold and nickel prospect near
Thunder Bay, Ontario. On Friday, Double Crown Resources sank 15.2% to $0.053 for
a market cap of $11.11 million plus DDCC is up 37.5% over the past five trading
days according to Google Finance.
What’s the Catch With Double Crown Resources? According to
various disclosures, transactions of $3k and $5k have occurred to mention Double
Crown Resources in various investment newsletters. On Thursday, Double Crown
Resources announced that its feature on the "Insights with Terry Bradshaw"
television show would begin running on Friday and will continue to run on a
range of stations and at different times for several months – no doubt giving
the company plenty of ongoing attention. On Tuesday, Double Crown Resources
also issued a press release noting that since the beginning of the year, private
placement funding of over $176,000 was received by the company and another
$13,000 has been committed. However, a quick look at Double Crown Resources’
financials reveals no revenues; net losses of $65k (most recent reported
quarter), $188k, $795k and $462k for the past for reported quarters; and had
just $3k in cash to cover $1,071k in current liabilities at the end of
September. In other words, the private placement funding of $176,000 is still a
long way off from covering just Double Crown Resources’ current liabilities.
Warrior Girl Corp (PINK: WRGL) Sank on No Apparent News
Warrior Girl Corp is a holding company for a series of diversified online
projects that span B2C operations, financial services, online hosting, web
services and social media. On Friday, Warrior Girl Corp sank 22.35% to $0.0139
for a market cap of $2.29 million plus WRGL is down 7.3% over the past year and
down 99.7% over the past five years according to Google Finance.
What’s the Catch With Warrior Girl Corp? According to
various disclosures, a transaction of $45k has occurred to mention Warrior Girl
Corp in various investment newsletters. However, I am not seeing any press
releases from Warrior Girl Corp on Google Finance or Yahoo! Finance and no
explanation as to why the stock dropped 22.35% on Friday. A quick look at
Warrior Girl Corp’s financials also reveals revenues of $19k (2012) and $101k
(2011) for the past two years; a net loss of $783k and net income of $11k; and
$11k in cash to cover $24k in accounts payable. Nevertheless, perhaps the $45k
transaction to promote Warrior Girl Corp has already run out.
