One and Done – POWRtec International Corp (POWT) Plummets

What was shaping up to be first major pump in penny stock land for 2012 turned into a nightmare in the second day. POWRtec International Corp. (OTC:POWT) saw a major run-up on Wednesday after the front-loading on Tuesday. The stock jumped triple digit percentages yesterday and the forum chatter on the stock was at a fever pitch. The group behind the email promotion has had a string of long-term (relative term in penny stocks) winning streaks in recent months.

POWT opened with a gap up this morning but quickly had a wave of sellers come in a rip the stock to shreds. Now the penny stock promoters behind the stock will claim massive short selling but in reality you can look to the front-running volume earlier in the week.

Overall it pays to be wary of these types of plays. Not saying you cannot make money on it but this is not like buying Apple stock. If you are willing to risk the money these are definitely day trades. You do not want to buy and hold. For every Cinderella penny stock story of runners lasting week, there is a road filled with shattered dreams of penny stocks that collapsed after a day. If you want to play the game of penny stocks you have to be nimble and unemotional. Just take your profits when you have them and cut losses quick.

Recent POWT news has them announcing they are delivering fifty thousand smart meters to Danish Utility energy giant, DONG Energy. This will bring the total number of smart meters to 210,000 meters when deployed in the next 12 months.
