Analyst Consensus: Not covered by Wall Street analysts.

Potential Catalysts / Reasons for the Hype:

  • GNS announced it was issuing a special dividend and could execute a possible stock buyback, reverse stock split, and/or dual listing in an effort to combat the suspected manipulation of its ordinary shares.
  • The company released its 2023 guidance, with expected revenue of between $48 million and $52 million.

On analyzing the company’s stock charts, there seem to be multiple bullish indications…

Bullish Indications

#1 Falling Wedge Pattern Breakout: The daily chart shows that the stock has been forming a falling wedge pattern for the past several months. These are marked as purple color lines. It has typically taken support at the bottom of the wedge before bouncing back. The stock has currently broken out from the falling wedge pattern. Once the stock breaks out of the falling wedge pattern, it could move higher.

  2. In 2019, 2020, and 2021, over 90% of the company’s revenues were generated from operations outside of the United States. As a global business, GNS is subject to complex economic, legal, political, tax, foreign currency, and other risks associated with international operations.
  3. The company has significant competition in the market segments that it serves, and such competition is expected to increase further.
  4. GNS has a limited operating history upon which its business and prospects can be evaluated.

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.
