Recommended Trade (based on the charts)
Buy Levels: If you want to get in on this trade, the ideal buy level for SDIG is above the price of $3.30.
Target Prices: Our first target is $4.30. If it closes above that level, the second target price is $5.30.
Stop Loss: To limit risk, place a stop loss at $2.70. Note that the stop loss is on a closing basis.
Our target potential upside is 30% to 61%.
For a risk of $0.60, our first target reward is $1.00, and the second target reward is $2.00. This is a nearly 1:2 and 1:3 risk-reward trade.

Potential Risks / Red Flags:
- The company has a history of net losses. SDIG incurred a net loss of $27.3 million in fiscal 2021 and has an accumulated deficit of $338.7 million as of December 31, 2021.
- Hedge Funds Decreased Holdings by 570.0K Shares Last Quarter.
- Despite being a loss-making company, the executives are being paid significant compensation.

READ BEFORE TRADING PENNY STOCKS: The allure of penny stocks lies in their potential to deliver massive gains in a short period of time. However, in exchange for that opportunity, most penny stocks carry tremendous risk. They can be extremely volatile and are susceptible to “pump and dump” schemes and fraud.
Unlike regular stocks, the financial condition of most penny stock companies can be extremely difficult to analyze, as the majority of such stocks are traded on over-the-counter (OTC) exchanges, which are typically less transparent and less regulated than the major exchanges. In fact, in the penny stock space, it’s often easier to spot warning signs and red flags than it is to identify a sound investment. Nevertheless, we do our best to identify short-term trade opportunities in this exciting space because we know some of our readers are looking for high-risk, high-reward ideas. We just urge you to make sure you fully understand the risks before making any of these trades.#1 AI Stock of 2023 (Not NVDA) [sponsor]
