You know… the idea that the SEC’s adoption of new rules facilitating greater access to capital may actually be a win for the little guys. But after letting it settle in the more sober mind a little bit, you remember that the devil is in the details. It seems that the past few times the SEC made adoptions meant to provide positive capital resource outlets for the micro-cap / nano-cap markets, or at least believed to, the already wide divide between the haves and have not’s… the who can vs. who cant’s…, only widened.
So… are these new rules facilitating greater access to capital really a good thing?
It’s just an opinion, but it almost seems that every time a new solution is adopted, we find that either (1) it’s really no solution at all for early development stage companies – particularly the public ones, or, (2) it is just another investment vehicle creating a loophole that will allow the quiet but rapid exploitation of early development stage companies – particularly the public ones. This of course leads back to point #1.
So what’s to be done?
Well, a good place to begin is in the demanding [by “the People”] of better educational resources from the Securities and Exchange Commission for both shareholders buying penny stocks and those nano-cap/micro-cap Issuers. This would greatly assist with comprehending what these adoptions actually mean in practice vs. principle.
Another would be News resources that are objective. Objective vs. the B.S. subjective narratives that mascaraed as facts; found in promoter financial newsletter services, non-licensed analyst reports and half-baked extortionistic message boards. This would greatly assist with ensuring that the information a perspective shareholder will base their investment decisions upon – decisions which ultimately underline the capital vehicle accessed by Issuers – is sound, and they [shareholders] are not getting caught up in just another investment vehicle creating a loophole, that will allow the quiet but rapid exploitation of early development stage companies… and its shareholders for that matters.
Even this however, would just be scratching the surface.
Nonetheless, we must first play the game and see what really comes of this new adoption and if these new rules facilitating greater access to capital actually pan out for all parties. Of course, you can only prove or disprove anything based on substantiated evidence, not philosophical views. So, while we will certainly keep an eye on what resources like The National Law Review have to say about this matter, AJENE WATSON, LLC will look to initiate and/or participate in executing the expanded Reg. A offering, in order to contribute more meaningful commentary on the SEC’s new rules facilitating greater access to Capital.
