Thermo-Tech Technologies.

I bought 20,000 shares of this stock when it was anywhere from .02 to less than a penny. OK, so I didn't lose much, but that is a few hundred that would have been better off in MO or BAC or JPM.

They since "sold" or partnered the technology to FIRMAPLUS, but the last thing I read was that FIRMAPLUS was supposed to be aquiring shares for .04 each. I never got anything for my shares and would love to get .04 each for them. I have no idea if the stock is still an owning interest in the company, if I missed the boat to cash in, or what. It still trades on the pink sheets.

The technology was very interesting, and I'm still interested in bio waste to industrial product technologies, but this one just seemed to disappear.

BTW, if anyone knows anything about these shares, I'd be greatly appreciative for the information.

There is a company that is privately funded that has a pilot plant in Philadelphia and a full sized plant somewhere in the midwest near a turkey processing plant that turns the turkey waste into oil. It's doing ok after some initial setbacks. This is the future of waste in this country. It shouldn't be going into landfills. OK, another topic for another board.

I have another story that ended ok for me, but could have been disastrous. I bought a couple hundred shares of FTFY - Fit after Fifty, and watched the stock go up. Reading articles on TMF and other places that said to just stay away from penny stocks I sold for a tidy profit. Guess when I sold. Less than an hour before the bottom dropped out! Boy did I get lucky on that one. I felt sorry for the people who bought my shares. I still am keeping my eye on this one. It is a good idea that has potential but it's too early in the process to jump on the bandwagon.
