When they were simply trying to find a way to find vaccines to prevent, and treat HIV, the penny stock of GeoVax Labs, Inc. (GOVX) was simply looked at as a poor choice for a long trade, losing more than -50% of its market cap since the start of the year. Dropping from the high .40’s at the start of the year to under .20 for a brief moment in July, GOVX stock needed something to help push it back into the spotlight considering their revenues dropped considerably compared to last year even though their shares trended similarly in 2013 from the mid .70’s. After announcing that they too are throwing their hat into the “find a cure for Ebola” arena, the turn around being witnessed today may have the same life expectancy as an infected person with the disease.

Ebola and finding a cure or way to treat the disease that was only recognized less than 40 years ago has become one of the hottest catalysts in the stock market right now. We profiled earlier Hemispherx Biopharma, Inc. (HEB) and listed a group of other stocks that are trading hot due to the Ebola catalyst, but GeoVax Labs hadn’t yet gotten involved publicly until their announcement pre-market today that they were going to embark on their own investigation about how to come up with a safe and effective vaccine to prevent infection.
When you have a glance at the balance sheet of GeoVax Labs, an amazing discovery is their almost complete lack of liabilities for a biotech firm whose sole purpose is to, by any means necessary, find a way to treat or cure the clade B subtype of the HIV virus that is most prevalent in the United States and western Europe. Thanks to having funded their activities to date from government grants and clinical trial assistance, as well as some selling of GOVX stock, total liabilities, as of June 30, 2014, were a mere $237,494, roughly $75,000 less than they were at the start of the year.
Interestingly, GeoVax Labs is not without revenues on their income statement, despite being an OTC listed player in the vaccine field. For the 6 months ended June 30, 2014, revenues from government grants were $337,781 compared to $1,238,601 for the same 6 month period in 2013. Although the revenues are obviously from funding programs, the Company’s progress on their HIV studies which stems from technology exclusively licensed from Emory University which was developed in collaboration with the National Institutes of Health and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention proves that they are serious players and not just news whores trying to get some attention on GOVX.
Thanks to the news announcement today and the low number of issued and outstanding shares, GOVX stock was a great play at the bell, gaining over 50% before the midday break. With volume just now past the half million mark, a strong EOD push once traders see what’s within the Company’s track record for HIV studies, GOVX stock could see themselves closing above their current spot and push, yet again, tomorrow morning to levels not seen since Q1, 2014.

These penny stocks playing in the Ebola arena are going to see initial pops just like what we saw at the start of the year when Company X would mention how they were getting involved in marijuana. GOVX stock has held up nicely through the morning and should be atop the list of Ebola stocks that traders are playing through the end of the week. With a pullback likely to come, those who missed out on the run may want to wait for another pop before jumping in too deep after seeing how poorly GOVX shares have performed since the start of 2013.
