Bull's Eye Investing

Symbol NYMH
Price .19
Target 1.15
Rating 10 of 10

I only have time to tell a select few investors about the breaking news that's got me excited again. Often times it's not the stocks we hear about everyday that bring the heftiest gains. Often times it's small little known companies that all of a sudden become known.

Simply ask yourself this question.

Do you really want to buy a stock at $20 per share and wait months or possibly years to see a 20% - 100% increase? Or would you rather buy stock in a small viable company and realize a short-term gain of 100% - 3000%?

Take for example NYMET Holdings Inc. (Pinksheets\:NYMH) an innovative metals and mining company headquartered in Port Jefferson, N.Y. that last week announced the completion of an acquisition agreement in Bernice, Louisiana. NYMET's stock was up forty-three percent at the close of trading last week. And we are looking for that momentum to carry forward this week with even bigger gains for savvy investors.

My new big pick is NYMET.PK. The company is quickly becoming a national leader with green solutions with the Green Trade initiative. NYMET.PK an innovative Green Technology solutions company. Put NYMET on your watch list because liquidity is increasing with a huge increase in short interest in July. This could be huge break out for the company on the heels of good news as the shorts are now realizing the NYMET is now a buy!

A Brief History of Jet Propulsion

Jet propulsion only literally and figuratively took off with the invention of the rocket by the Chinese in the 13th century.

Rocket exhaust was initially used in a modest way for fireworks but gradually progressed to propel formidable weaponry; and there the technology stalled for hundreds of years.

Archytas, the founder of mathematical mechanics, as described in the writings of Aulus Gellius five centuries after him, was reputed to have designed and built the first artificial, self-propelled flying device. This device was a bird-shaped model propelled by a jet of what was probably steam, said to have actually flown some 200 meters.

And there you have how jet propulsion started.

What are Oil Shales?

Oil shales are source rocks that have not been exposed to heat or pressure long enough to convert their trapped hydrocarbons into crude oil.

Technically speaking, oil shales are not really shales and do not really contain oil, but they are usually relatively hard rocks called marls containing a waxy substance called kerogen. The kerogen trapped in the rock can be converted into crude oil using heat and pressure to simulate natural processes. The method has been known for centuries and was patented in 1694 under British Crown Patent No. 330 covering, "A way to extract and make great quantityes of pitch, tarr, and oyle out of a sort of stone."

Although oil shales are found in many countries, the United States has the world's largest deposits.

The petroleum industry is involved in the global processes of exploration, extraction, refining, transporting (often with oil tankers and pipelines), and marketing petroleum products. The largest volume products of the industry are fuel oil and gasoline (petrol).

Petroleum is also the raw material for many chemical products, including pharmaceuticals, solvents, fertilizers, pesticides, and plastics. The industry is usually divided into three major components: upstream, midstream and downstream.

Midstream operations are usually included in the downstream category.

Dough Prepared According to Certain Customs

A basic principle of whether a given dough can be used for mitzva matzo is that dough that does not have the potential of becoming chametz by simply sitting for 18 minutes cannot be made into mitzva matzo. Thus, a dough made from juice or something similar is of doubtful validity as mitzva matzo and may be used for the mitzva only in cases of illness or age.

Those who contend that Ashkenazi Jews should not eat egg matzah cite Rema (Orach Chaim ibid., 4) ruling that the custom among the Ashkenazim is to refrain from using Egg Matzah on Passover at all, unless it is necessary for children or the elderly who would have difficulty eating regular Matzah.

Commenting on Rabbi Yosef Karo's permission to use egg matzah, the Rema responded "in our communities, we do not knead (matzah) dough with fruit juice. And one should not change from this unless in a time of emergency for the sake of a sick or old person who needs this". Those who follow this prohibition of eating egg matzah on Passover also include chocolate covered matzah, grape flavored matzah, and the many other varieties available.
