While looking through a stock scanner for stocks showing high buy volume spikes I came across a familiar name. Jones Soda (JSDA) has been around a long time and even have their products in my local high end grocery store Harris Teeter. It's been almost forgot now though and trades on the OTC with other penny stocks at just $.51 a share. It bottomed out lately at about $.30 a share. Average daily trading volume on JSDA is 85,000 shares. It traded 1.5 million shares Friday!
This is a $21 million company. Looking at the balance sheet everything is fine. No long-term debt and a 1.5 current ratio. Hardly your typical penny stock. Something must be wrong. Yes, revenues have been flat to down the past couple years. Gross margins are stable now though. I think this is one of those companies where expectations are so bleak that anything positive boosts the stock. I see that likely hood a lot more than I see the revenue and earnings getting worse. With the balance sheet the way it is they have plenty of time to get it together. Technically, the stock has bottomed. It looks like a high bull flag going on here. If it breaks over $.56 again it's off to the races.
