IRVING, Texas, May 4, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — (RBC Life Sciences: OTCBB: RBCL) – RBC Life Sciences, Inc., a provider of proprietary nutritional supplements, wound care and pain management products, today reported consolidated net sales of $6.54 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2011, compared to net sales of $6.98 million for the same period during 2010. The Company also reported net earnings of $143,000, or $0.01 per share, compared to net earnings of $211,000, or $0.01 per share, for the same quarter last year.
“Due to a variety of logistical factors, net sales in our largest revenue channel declined during the first quarter of 2011 resulting in an overall decline in consolidated net sales,” said RBC Life Sciences President and CEO, Clinton H. Howard. “However, we saw a 37% increase in Associate network sales during the quarter, and the number of individuals who joined our Associate network more than doubled. This growth is the result of a program we introduced in March 2010 that allows customers in Southeast Asia to enroll in the Associate network and purchase our Nutritional Products. Because of the very positive reception in this market, we plan to open a branch office in Taiwan later this year.”
Penny Stocks are stocks traded for under $2 and they represent the small cap companies. They trade on the OTCBB so you will not find them on the major stock exchanges. They are very cheap stocks and normally come for businesses needing capital. They are a very risky investment as the business can go under and leave you with a stock worth nothing. However that being said penny stock trading can be a great money maker, and there are numerous traders who make 6 figures and more from them each year.
The best reasons to trade in penny stocks are the fact that they do not require a large initial investment, meaning that they are an affordable investment for many. Penny stocks are cheap. For example if you were to buy 1000 shares in a company with shares at 10 cents, you would only require an investment of $100, whereas if the shares cost $5 you would require an investment of $5000. Penny stocks also have the potential of huge gains, and have been known to rise as much as 1000% daily. Therefore your $100 investment can be worth $1000. This is very unlikely to happen to other stocks from large cap businesses.
