E How To Value A Patent: American Manganese

TM Editors' Note: This article discusses a penny stock and/or microcap. Such stocks are easily manipulated; do your own careful due diligence.

American Manganese Inc. (AMI) trades on the TSX Venture under the symbol AMY and in the U.S. markets on the pink sheets as AMYZF.

The company currently has a market capitalization of approximately C$30.5 million with 150 million shares outstanding. So by many standards a very small company.

Many investors tend to shy away from small companies, particularly if they are trading on the Venture Exchange, but, in my opinion, that would be a big mistake with AMI.
