Hi Ezra, hope I hit your correct email adress. 
I was going to mention about these incredible opportunities 
for future prosperity.There is a company outhere 
known as Exchange Mobile Tele Co (EXMT). 
This one as you can see is climbing, but by just looking at it 
I can tell it's gonna explode.So you do have a window to digg in 
while it's still in it's low.I got a few shares of mine and made 
5K. So what a hey, go ahead and do the same make some money while 
it's there. 

I hope it was a helper.I'll email you later this week. 



Do not forget!
DO NOT INVEST in a company, if you received a tip online.
Why? Because stocks go up when a lot of people buy them but will fall rapidly when people figure out the hoax (and try to sell their stocks).
Tip If you really have some money to invest, try contacting a brokerage (FOREX trading) company. As they do this for a living, they will put your money in the best businesses. Some companies also let you choose the risk level of your investment portfolio. If you pick one that does, choose a moderate risk portfolio. A smaller profit is still bettter then a big hole in your pocket.
