Adex Media (ADXM)

Current price $0.55

52 week range 0.49-5.50

Market cap 17.63M


ADXM operates as an integrated Internet marketing, advertising, and lead generation publisher, as well as developer, marketer, and distributor of consumer products in the United States.

"We can take any product, whether brand new or existing, and sell it online in high volumes worldwide in weeks."

In a competitive market for search marketing, AdEx will face challenges ahead with big players such as Google, but is still setting its goals high and reaching out into less competitive markets than the US. In August 2009 the company expanded its operations into Canada, and is expanding into Europe in the 4th quarter of 2009 with the target countries being UK, Germany and France. AdEx will expand its strategic partners internationally. There is less competition, and they will pay less for leads. I'm going to keep a close eye on AdEx and see if they have any success in their global endeavors if they experience growth in these less competitive AdEx could be an attractive investment.

Ireland Inc (IRLD)

Current price $0.44

52 week range 0.15-0.71

Market cap 97.01M


Ireland, (IRLD) an exploration stage company, engages in the acquisition, exploration, and development of mineral properties in the United States. It owns a 100% interest in the Columbus project comprising 128 mineral and millsite claims with gold, silver, and calcium carbonate deposits, as well as has rights to an additional 147 mineral claims located in the Columbus Salt Marsh in Esmeralda County, Nevada.

The company also holds a 100% interest in the Ireland claim consisting of one unpatented mineral lode claim located in the Yellow Pine Mining District in Clark County, Nevada. In addition, it has interests in the Red Mountain project comprising 60 mineral claims with gold, silver, and tungsten deposits covering approximately 7,500 acres in San Bernardino County and Kern County, California. The company was formerly known as Merritt Ventures Corp. and changed its name to Ireland, Inc. in December 2005. Ireland, Inc. was founded in 2001 and is based in Henderson, Nevada.

Future Outlook

In September 2009 Ireland announced it had received approval from the Bureau of Land Management to expand its previously authorized 30-hole drill program at the Columbus Project by 28 holes. The 58 holes were drilled to depths ranging from 200 feet to 400 feet below the surface. The objective of the program is to determine the three-dimensional extent and economic potential of the gold/silver mineralization that lies between and beyond the previously identified mineralized Zones A and B of the Columbus Project. In September, Ireland also announced that its second 2,000 pound pilot scale leach test produced 83% recovery of gold and silver (metal-in-hand) (


With the price of gold rising, the dollar value decreasing and expectations of high inflation Ireland could have an attractive revenue source with its current exploration for gold and silver. Due to the speculation of this investment and the lack of historical data or performance this company should provide a few good quarters or even a full year of positive operating performance and cash flows before an investment decision should be considered.

SPAR Group, Inc. (SGRP)

Current price $1.00

52 week range 0.36-1.10

Market cap 19.14


The SPAR Group, Inc. is a supplier of in-store merchandising and marketing services, and premium incentive marketing services throughout the United States and Canada. The company also provides database marketing, teleservices, marketing research, and Internet-based software. The company's operations are divided into three divisions: the Merchandising Services Division, the Incentive Marketing Division, and the Internet Division. Spar Group Inc. has a market cap of $19.14 million; its shares were traded at around $1 with a P/E ratio of 25 and P/S ratio of 0.27.


SPAR Group just reported operating results with some positive and negative news. The company reported net income of $157K or $0.01 per share compared to a net loss of $117K or $0.01 per share. This is the good news, which masks the bad news that the company's revenue declined to $18.9 from $22.8 for the same period last year. SPAR Group became profitable due to strict cost cutting and improved efficiency. The decline in revenue was due to the loss of one of its larger customers who filed for bankruptcy.

Revenue Decline

Looking at SGRP's 10 year income statement the company has had negative growth in revenue since 1999 and has had more negative years for net income than positive this could mainly be due to larger companies become big players and stealing market share, as mentioned earlier one of these companies Spar Group is not thanking this Thanksgiving is Google who has become the world's largest cost per click advertising company.

Risks (ALL)

Each of these stocks has very low volume and is subject to more stock volatility. Because there is more variance in price and volatility there is more risk involved with the investment. Consider all risks and options before investing and seek professional advice.
