Worthless: Superlattice (SLAT.OB) and Hybrid Tech (HYBR.OB)
How do you know a worthless penny stock lithium battery wanne be and it's "former parent?" You could look at the gruesome financials, pictured above. Alternately, you could read press releases like this one, discussing short position, clearly aimed at collecting a following of two types of bagholders: those that believe short squeezes are the road to riches, and those who believe that companies who complain about short interest are somehow fighting for the downtrodden.
Or, you could simply look at the carrier of the PR. If it's Marketwire, you can pretty much bet you're getting the market's finest junk.
Get your virtual shorts in now, folks, before these two perfect examples of bogusness return to the penny bin whence they came.
