HPON

ore on Buffet and Burlington Industries, there’s a new twist
to the story, it now appears to be a battle of two billionaires.
BRLG gained 100% Friday on news that Wilbur Ross of WL
Ross and Co. is trying to wrestle control of BRLG away from
Warren Buffet and Berkshire Hathaway. Why the stock spiked
Friday is this: “Ross is offering a plan that may get shareholders
something like 50-60 cents a share.”

http://www.marketwatch.com/news/yhoo/story.asp?source=blq/yhoo&siteid=yhoo&dist=yhoo&guid=%7B55D2AA36%2D41DC%2D4755%2D8B98%2DD8E93D46BE39%7D

That’s a nice gain from Friday’s close at .025. If Buffet wins
control, the stock price goes to zero (according to what we
reported last week from Burlington Industries’ Press Release).

If Ross wins the stock price goes to the moon (relatively
speaking compared to where it is now). It appears like a
50-50 gamble from here in the cheap seats. I guess you
got to ask yourself, do I feel lucky?

Hop-On HPON (.129) is the developer and marketer of
the world’s first disposable, fully recyclable, and contract
free cell phone. A blurb in the latest issue of Business 2.0
magazine (March 2003 issue, page 126), as well Popular
Mechanics (March 2003) and Consumer’s Digest may give
them some needed recognition. The fact that they are a pink
sheet stock we will merely mention but not harp on.

BRLG

The rich get richer…
Isn’t now the time to buy, imagine the deals you can get.
Warren Buffet just plucked one from the OTCBB.

Berkshire Hathaway announced the purchase of Burlington
Industries BRLG who’s been in Chapter 11 since 2001.

For all those enticed by “Q” stocks:
“All shares of Burlington’s Common Stock would be
canceled with no payment.” Just so you know.

Locate Plus Holdings LPLHA (.18)
recently reported record revenues
http://biz.yahoo.com/bw/030206/62204_1.html

Whats more interesting is this:

Dr. Richard Geist Initiates Coverage on LocatePLUS Holdings
http://biz.yahoo.com/bw/030211/112334_1.html

I’ve mentioned this guy in the past in reference to some insightful
articles he wrote regarding the psychology of investing.
Never knew he was in the “coverage” business.
He was paid quite handsomely according to the disclaimer.
Either way, LPLHA provides online investigative solutions to law
enforcement, legal and insurance professionals, licensed investigators,
and other related businesses. The “snoop” business apparently
is growing.

ENDD

Bad news for everyone else, but there’s a theory being
tossed around that so goes January so goes the year

Most major indexes finished January in the red.
Pennyheaven Super 7 however ended January +9.78%.

Super 7 News – First Aid Direct FADI (.13)
announced their moving into bigger quarters

“The new facility is comprised of approximately 17,000 square feet,
more than double the previous space of 7,000 square feet. The new
facility has additional office space for new key employees and for
additional office staff to handle the Company’s continued growth.”

Another good company-bad spread scenario:

CYTP

he market is getting hammered and most YTD indices are
now in the red (Nasdaq is hanging in at +.5%).

Thanks partly to yours truly and the partial fill I got at .13 on
FADI the Pennyheaven 2003 Super 7 finished the week at a
new YTD high (+8.0%).

Cybertel Communications Corporation CYTP (.016) announced
a stock buyback program…The company has made several
purchases over the past two weeks. “At these levels Cybertel
is so undervalued that we can’t afford to pass up this opportunity,”
stated CEO Richard Mangiarelli.

Cybertel Communications Corp. is a provider of long
distance voice and data telecommunications services.

For the nine months ending 9/30/02 revenues are down
about 15% and net loss is up about 25%. On top of that
Form S-8 issued 12/13/02 mentions the registering of
35,000,000 shares as part of an Employee Stock Incentive
Plan for the Year 2002.

37,196,077 s/o as of 11/13/02
Marketcap: $595,137

Bottom line, who knows? The above is a bold and bullish
statement for any CEO to make especially considering that
revenues are down and losses are up. What do they know
that we don’t? I hope its something other than the registering
of 35,000,000 shares.

Pennyheaven Super 7 – 2003

Pennyheaven.com News Report – 01/01/03

First lets review and see where we are:
Major indexes are down 3 years running, Nasdaq just
experienced the worst December ever, consumer confidence
is down near a seven year low, and the thought of war is on
too many minds.

I think its safe to say now is not the best time to be a
stock picker. Still, Pennyheaven Top 10 (2002) did finish
in the black (+ 10%) even though 7 of the 10 were in the
red. HQNT finished up 400%, LDNA up 100%, and UBET
up 67%. I’ll take it.

This year we’re doing something different. The current
environment dictates we get lean and mean.
Instead of the Top 10 we’ve narrowed it down to Top 7.
No Fat; No Waste.

Ladies and Gentlemen,
