Stock Market Trading - Potential US Takeover Targets

Don't you just love surprises ! Especially when they arrive unexpected in your e-mail box and invite you to sign up for stock market tips. Well I gave them my e-mail address (which they already had anyway) and got the possible takeover target tips. They are for US stocks so may be of interest to folks who invest in North American stocks. They are all also under $10.

Ballantyne Strong, Inc. (AMEX: BTN) - a leader in the transition to digital and 3-D, and making profits as the transition grips the industry.

BTN can outfit a theater, and is one-stop shopping mall for folks who want to get a movie theater up-and-running, or want `to retrofit an older theater with digital or 3-D technology.

So there you have it 5 possible takeover targets as tipped by an ex-securities analyst in the brokerage industry. They sound reasonable enough but potential takeover targets is a rather loose term, but I'll be keeping an eye on them all the same to see how they turn out. And why do people trading stock on the stock market need to ply their wares via my mailbox ? That implies, as far as I'm concerned, that they are making their living selling stuff rather than actually investing on the stock market. Why don't they give all their tips away free not just a few to draw you into their e-mail list ? They may even manage to drive up the price of the stocks they have bought that way if they sent out enough e-mails. I wonder if anyone else has thought of that ?
