Rodney Smith, Chairman and CEO said, “Smith-Midland is pleased to report
positive earnings for the three months ended March 31, 2011. Although
first quarter earnings were below that of the same period in 2010, the
company, as well the construction industry as a whole, is beginning to
see signs of improvement from both the private and public sectors in the
number of projects being financed and bid by owners and general
contractors. Although we have been awarded several large architectural
projects over the past few months, all of which will be produced in
2011, the Company’s overall performance during 2011 will depend on the
construction industry’s continued improvement, and how successful
Smith-Midland is in bidding and acquiring new contracts.”

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.
