This has given a boost to the market and these four stocks are continuing to gain attention in a big way on Friday the 13th. Furthermore, chart patterns and above average intra-day trading activity suggest that momentum has been building rather than slowing. With the market saturated with overbought stocks, we’ve found some potential “value” plays with 4 stocks paring larger gains to now offer a trough for investors to look toward a possible future rally.
Life Clips Inc (OTCBB:LCLP) has managed to move up more than 150% since last Monday (5/2). Today has been the first time that the stock has had any major consolidation on an intra-day level. After hitting all time highs of $0.65 this morning the stock has pulled in to lows of $0.52 which could be offering potential point of entry after such a large run up in a short period of time.
The Company announced yesterday that they have placed an initial order for its new 4k Action Camera the SoluVu™ to fulfill retail and distribution orders. Last week Life Clips Inc (OTCBB:LCLP) announced that it had signed a binding letter of intent to purchase Israeli battery maker Batteryfly Energy, LTD. The battery maker has a product that is already distributed outside the US called Mobeego, which is a single use, untethered charger for cell phones and action cameras, both of which LifeClips has targeted for market entry.
In Thursday’s announcement, Life Clips CEO Bob Gruder stated, “We are coming out of the gate swinging. We aim to aggressively compete with companies like GoPro by offering comparable or better features at a far lower price. The SoloVu™ will retail for $159.00 which is significantly less than the leading brand. What we have here is a feature and option rich product with a quality and a price that should be extremely attractive to consumers. We are not putting the cart before the horse, we are currently in the advanced stages of conversation with some of the nation’s largest distributors and big box retailers. We anticipate having a great roll out of this initial camera product. We hope to have several more exciting models releasing this year as well.”
