Fresh Vending International, Inc. (OTCBB:VEND) Lengthens Red Series

Fresh Vending International, Inc. (OTCBB:VEND) seems unable to rebounce, this time ending the day at $1.75. VEND sank by about 6% on Tuesday, on dollar volumes a bit above $496,000. The company easily slides down when press releases go silent, and the many days in the red suggest that the paper mailer has also dwindled, no longer bringing in new investors. For now, it is a question of how deep the fall will be, and if VEND will be able to keep a bit of its old positions or even make another temporary growth cycle. VEND1211c.png

The company has not posted any press releases since the financial results at the end of November. While VEND achieves relatively high cash flow due to the nature of vending business, it is still burdened by debt and threatens stock dilution. WTER1211.png

Investors’ forums are relatively inactive, mentioning the possibility that VEND proves itself and doubles its share price- but also suggesting that the company is misleading investors and the prices are overinflated, both by the general future promises and the concerted publicity and promotion efforts.

For now, it’s a wait-and-see how VEND meets the end of the year, and if the slowing down during the upcoming holidays won’t derail the ticker further.

Along with VEND, we are tracking other heavily promoted tickers, to see how they are doing over a longer period. The Alkaline Water Co., Inc. (OTCBB:WTER) is one of them- a high-flier that got depressed. Now, WTER is in a lower range, perhaps biding its time for another run upward, perhaps surviving before a deeper cut. WTER drifted above 50 cents for a while, then moved to a lower range and now fluctuated between 30 and 40 cents.

World Moto, Inc. (OTCBB:FARE) is blessedly outside a loud promotion, which means less price disproportion. But FARE is also propped by future business expectations, and a year of hopeful sales.
Now, FARE is back down toward the 10-cent level, bucking the rising trend. While seen as undervalued, FARE has not been without its corrections, due to realizing profits or just drawing away when there are not enough PR messages to stoke enthusiasm.

If you are still waiting for a good entry position to VEND, keep in mind that the company tries to balance true potential with some serious red flags. Invest accordingly, to avoid being drawn into a downward spiral, if VEND shows its disappointing side more.
