Credo Petroleum Completes Third Consecutive High Rate Bakken Discovery - http://yhoo.it/dPlLd2
GEOI just announced a share offering today and is down this morning, but that is a great chance to jump on shares. Why? Its planning on using some of the proceeds to drill mostly in the Bakken trend oil play of North Dakota & Montana.
(GeoResources expects to utilize the net proceeds it receives from the offering to pay down the $87.0 million outstanding balance under its credit agreement. GeoResources expects to use any of its remaining net proceeds from the offering along with its cash flow and credit facility availability, primarily to fund its drilling and development expenditures on its acreage in the Bakken Trend in North Dakota and Montana, and its acreage in the Eagle Ford Trend in Texas, and for incremental leasehold acquisitions and general corporate purposes.)
The money is being used wisely, and should bring in a big payoff for their investment. Why? The Bakken oil find in North Dakota and Montana is fast becoming the biggest Oil find since Texas.

any day now that the FDA has given it the nod for Phase III trials of Tovaxin.

If you never heard of MS then be glad you have not heard of this terrible disease that destroys a person's will to get up in the morning by making every muscle in the body feel dead tired. That is why any company that makes it to phase III is given such huge investment money not only from investors but also from a host of others in the world community who want to stop the suffering of people with the disease. I am one of the unluckly people to have seen the suffering and death caused by this disease. First encounter was my wife's uncle who got the disease when he was in the late 30's and by 50 he passed away. His daughter then got symptons in the early 20's and before reaching 30 she also passed away.
Then my brother in law showed symptons after a car crash when he injured his head, soon thereafter he awoke one day not being able to feel his legs. Now he must continue to take MS drugs to be able to move otherwise he is bed ridden. Its even worse when his son also showed symptons at only 20 yrs old, he is 22 now. They say the earlier you show symptons of MS the harder it is for the body to fight it. I remember a few years back when ACOR was in the $2's and it was in the same position as OPXA is today. I rooted for ACOR then just like I will for OPXA, maybe one day one of these companies will finally conquer this terrible disease.

So when Banro (BAA) announced that Dr. Peter Ruxton, who spent 11 years of his 15-year mining career with BHP Billiton (NYSE: BHP), had been appointed to its board. It sent alarm bells to mutual funds and such to start taking Banro a lot more seriously as an investment.
Dr. Ruxton's experience with BHP Billiton (NYSE: BHP) is a major positive for Banro to get over the hump and to limit any growing pains in the transformation from a small-cap explorer into major gold mining company. [more]
