New York, NY (WiredPRNews.com) – Peter Leeds, the widely followed expert on penny stocks, is giving back to the industry with today’s announcement of his “Standing Up for Penny Stocks” campaign. Peter Leeds, along with the help of his entire team of analysts and support staff, aims to repair the bad name that penny stocks have generated over the years, while helping investors understand and profit from the highest quality of these low-priced shares.
Known as The Penny Stock Professional, Peter Leeds will be leading the Standing Up for Penny Stocks campaign, to accomplish it’s three-part mission:
1. repairing the “penny stocks” name by educating investors
2. identifying best investments
3. fighting unethical practices
“This campaign is more important now than ever,” said Peter Leeds. “Way too many people are getting taken advantage of, losing money by getting involved in the wrong investments, or making costly trading mistakes. By standing up for penny stocks, my team and I can help people avoid the mistakes, profit from the great high quality penny stocks that are out there, and ultimately reverse the negative connotations that are unfairly leveled against low-priced shares.”
Leeds went on to say that, “Our best penny stock pick last year was Ford Motor Company. When people think of penny stocks, they don’t generally think about companies like Ford, but it was a penny stock. Since we selected it at $1.87, it traded as high as $14 in a year, giving our subscribers a massive return in a short time frame from a well-known, fundamentally solid investment.”
The Peter Leeds team indicated that a big part of the education they will undertake will involve guiding newer and less experienced investors away from stock promoters. Such players get paid by the companies they tout, and drive up prices of thinly traded shares through one-sided information in free newsletters, mailing lists, and websites.
When asked if penny stocks were a good investment vehicle for all people, he said that they weren’t, but that with the right knowledge and approach most investors will be able to benefit significantly from them.
Interested individuals are encouraged to become a part of the Peter Leeds movement, by becoming a follower of the fan club on Facebook. At the fan club, enthusiasts of penny stocks gather to discuss companies, ask questions, and communicate directly with Peter Leeds and his team.
The Standing Up for Penny Stocks campaign will involve a media and content push, which will include press releases, blog discussions, social media touch points, articles, videos, media interviews, and special feature reports. Dissemination will target subscribers to their penny stocks newsletter, visitors to any of the online properties affiliated with Peter Leeds, media professionals, and ultimately the general public mass market.
