North Springs Resources (NSRS) Risk Not Worth Reward

The Hottest Penny Stock, North Springs Resources (OTCQB: NSRS) has gone from being the best penny stock to buy to the most volatile stock within minutes earlier this week. Multiple times we have alerted on the risk involved with NSRS, the scam and the unavoidable crash of the stock coupled with the corporate history of NSRS CEO Harry Lappa

Many think it is still a good penny stock to buy since its collapse from $1.72 with various claims of the plunge being caused by a short squeeze.

Nothing could be further from the truth as there were only 1.75 Million shares shorted as of January 31 which could be covered within 30 minutes of a trading session. Therefore, that claim is simply unwarranted.

NSRS One Day Chart: February 10

The truth is no one except insiders who aggressively traded NSRS Friday, which hit 42 cents at 12:35pm and was back above the 50 cent level 45 minutes later, are the only ones who know where the Oil & Gas Exploration, Development & Acquisition Company is going.

Did I say Oil & Gas?

My Mistake. NSRS is a Gold Mining Company. How Could I make that mistake? Ahhh because their last 10Q filed with the SEC December 19th states them to be in Oil & Gas while their website and Yahoo Corporate Profile have them as a company focused on the evaluation, acquisition, exploration, and development of mineral resource properties, primarily precious metal properties in Nevada.

Curiosity raises one to do some due diligence digging so lets head to and see what we find:

As for: research firm IRI still stands by their price figure and also still has NSRS recommended as a “STRONG BUYSeriously? The $350,000,000 potential mentioned in the recent press release from NSRS is the potential Harry Lappa stands to make with the shear amount of shares owned and volume created in this Oil & Gas Gold Exploration Company.
