On analyzing the company’s stock charts, there seem to be multiple bullish indications…

Bullish Indications

Potential Risks / Red Flags:

    TELL – Consolidated Statements of Operations

  2. The company will be required to seek additional equity and/or debt financing in the future to complete the Driftwood Project and to grow its other operations, and may not be able to secure such financing on acceptable terms, or at all. This is because the company is not anticipated to generate any significant revenue from the Driftwood Project for multiple years, and the cash flow from its other lines of business is expected to be modest for an extended period.
  3. Hedge Funds Decreased Holdings by 32.9K Shares Last Quarter.

    TELL – Hedge Funds

  4. Tellurian has a limited operating history and its business is in an early stage of development.
  5. Despite being a loss-making company, the executives are being paid significant compensation.

    TELL – Executive Compensation

  6. The company has significant competition from independent, technology-driven companies, and large, established companies. Some of Tellurian’s competitors have greater financial, technological, and other resources. This could have a material adverse effect on Tellurian’s business, results of operations, financial condition, liquidity, and prospects.

As you can see, today’s featured penny stock offers big upside potential… but it also comes with a number of risks and red flags. As always, when dealing with penny stocks, we advise caution before entering into such high-risk ventures. Remember to think before you trade… understand the risks… and if you decide to trade, stick to your stop-losses!

Happy Trading!

READ BEFORE TRADING PENNY STOCKS: The allure of penny stocks lies in their potential to deliver massive gains in a short period of time. However, in exchange for that opportunity, most penny stocks carry tremendous risk. They can be extremely volatile and are susceptible to “pump and dump” schemes and fraud.

Unlike regular stocks, the financial condition of most penny stock companies can be extremely difficult to analyze, as the majority of such stocks are traded on over-the-counter (OTC) exchanges, which are typically less transparent and less regulated than the major exchanges. In fact, in the penny stock space, it’s often easier to spot warning signs and red flags than it is to identify a sound investment. Nevertheless, we do our best to identify short-term trade opportunities in this exciting space because we know some of our readers are looking for high-risk, high-reward ideas. We just urge you to make sure you fully understand the risks before making any of these trades.
