Trading in penny stocks is not for the faint-hearted. Penny stocks are considered lucrative but high-risk bets. Investors are drawn to penny stocks for their low prices and hopes of huge profit upside despite the high risks involved. Potential investors should be careful to understand what they are getting into.
Troubles brewing at Bahvest
Trouble is brewing at Sabah-based mining company Bahvest Resources Berhad after a private company owned by its managing director and chief executive officer filed a letter of demand (LOD) to the listed entity for trespassing into a concession area that the private company owns. This is on top of a string of investigations and material litigations to deal with.
The LOD is seeking RM20.4 million in compensation from Wullersdorf Resources Sdn Bhd (WRSB), a 100% subsidiary of Bahvest, for wrongful occupation of the mining land belonging to Southsea Gold Sdn Bhd (SGSB) for the period between September 2017 and April 2023. At the same time, SGSB demanded that WRSB vacate and move all operations out of SGSB’s mining lease land within 30 days from the date of LOD. SGSB has subleased 317.7 ha of land to WRSB since 2017 at RM60,000 per annum for 33 years.
