You can research it on quantumonline. It is sold on the OTC with ticker SBCKP.

You'll need to talk to your broker to figure out exactly how to put an order in - with Scottrade it took a phone call as it is too thinly traded and lacks a market maker.

The fact that there is no market maker makes this a TOUGH stock to trade in. Some days no shares trade, some days 200 or 300 shares.

You really need to do some homework before jumping in on something like this and be comfortable with what you're buying. You likely need to buy 100 shares for any chance of the order going through, and you may not be able to liquidate it at all if you need the money in a pinch down the road.
