  • Platinum Studios announced today that Equiti-trend Advisors has put together a 6-page analysis of PS, which can be viewed here, which is overall pretty dry but does blame their current stock price on the mortgage meltdown. “At its 12-month low currently, largely due to macroeconomic problems and the mortgage meltdown of 2008, PDOS is a bargain currently at less than$.10 per share”Well, .10 cents per share is a bargain, but so are Hatian penny stocks. The Beat has a post about Platinum’s new advisory board.
