Ascent Solar Technologies, Inc. (ASTI) continues its ascent

Posted by :: Planet Penny Stocks on Aug 17, 2012

Ascent Solar Technologies, Inc. (Nasdaq: ASTI) was up more than 10 percent from Thursday’s closing price in late-day trading on Friday. The Colorado-based company develops flexible thin-film photovoltaic modules that enable solar power generation.

Most recently, Ascent Solar Technologies announced that it launched a charger for the Samsung Galaxy S III smart phone featuring the company’s ultra light CIGS technology. The new charger will be branded under Ascent’s EnerPlex line of consumer products, and “adds minimal weight and size to the Galaxy S III yet provides significantly improved battery life by harnessing sunlight for electric power,” an August 13 press release stated.

144 million smart phones were sold globally in the first quarter of 2012. Ascent is developing the EnerPlex line utilizing its transformational CIGS technology to bring solar enabled power to a variety of new consumer products such as the widely anticipated next generation iPhone, the August 13 press release stated.

A recent article on Seeking Alpha listed three reasons why Ascent Solar Technologies is “the best solar speculation.” The reasons given by the author include the company’s consumer electronics and iPhone initiatives, the fact that the company has more cash than debt, and finally momentum.

Shares of ASTI are up more than 200 percent over the past three months, according to Yahoo Finance.

How to Trade and Pick Penny Stocks

Posted by :: Planet Penny Stocks on Jun 25, 2011

Penny stocks are loosely categorized companies with share prices of below $5 and with market caps of under $200 million. They are sometimes referred to as “the slot machines of the equity market” because of the risks involved. There may be a good place for penny stocks in the portfolio of an experienced, advanced investor, however, if you follow these steps.

Understand why penny stocks are considered a dangerous investment. Penny stocks are among the most volatile and most manipulated form of investment in the stock market. The companies usually have no track record of solid financial performance. In addition, the stocks are often manipulated by scam artists.

Get at least one year’s experience with mid- and large-cap stocks first. You should become adept at reading a balance sheet, income statement, and cash flow statement during this time.

Look for companies that have consistently generated cash and are growing their free cash flow over time.Avoid companies with a heavy debt load.
