<div><img src=”https://www.mmjobserver.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/02/mmjobserver-logo.jpg” class=”ff-og-image-inserted”></div><p>The tech stocks sold off due to rising rate fears. However, U.S. stock futures rose sharply in early morning trading on Monday, as Treasury yields retreated from their highs from last week, easing concerns about inflation and that higher rates would undermine equity valuations. Investors have a “rare” opportunity to buy the dip here, according to Mizuho analyst Dan Dolev.</p>
<p>The mobile payment company is coming off mixed fourth-quarter results earlier this week where the company revealed it purchased $170 billion worth of Bitcoin.</p>
<p>Shares finished the week down almost 17% but Dolev believes Square is in good shape for the long run.</p>
<p>The company’s bitcoin-enabled Cash App is “holding up well” and should continue to see growth after some recent deceleration, he wrote. The app allows users to transfer money via a mobile phone app.</p>
<p>“We see overall Seller &amp; Cash App gross profit accelerating in 1Q21,” he said.</p>
<p>And according to Dolev, the company’s products are “highly levered” to any government stimulus if more should transpire as is expected.</p>
<p>“Following the stimulus in March 2020, Cash App gross profit growth accelerated,” Dolev said.</p>
<p>The firm also has a Street high price target of $380 per share and even though the stock sold off this week, Square’s momentum remains firmly well-positioned, he said.</p>

Why ISW Holdings Inc (OTCMKTS:ISWH) Could be the Next Crypto Stock Starhttps://www.mmjobserver.com/why-isw-holdings-inc-otcmktsiswh-could-be-the-next-crypto-stock-star/34005/
https://www.mmjobserver.com/?p=34005
<div><img src=”https://www.mmjobserver.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/12/Bitcoin2.jpg” class=”ff-og-image-inserted”></div><p>As we move inexorably toward 2021, there are several themes that should strike the diligent eye of the astute investor: money creation, central bank activism, the discovery of the “fiscal channel” in policy operations, and the coming impact of covid-19 vaccines.</p>
<p>Wrapped in all of these conceptual narratives is Bitcoin, with its newfound sheen of legitimacy following moves by major payment platforms (the key to this puzzle) to invest in the digital currency. As a result, the crypto space has been on fire from any reasonable perspective.</p>
<p>But there are very few small and micro-cap investment plays available to the quote-unquote “normal” investor. The point: while Bitcoin has doubled over the past couple months, market participants are sure to be searching for instruments that can offer them much bigger returns over the near term on a proxy basis relative to the coin.</p>
<p>That’s why we are taking a closer look today at ISW Holdings Inc (OTCMKTS:ISWH), a company that has strong momentum in two major growth trends and has now established a strong anti-dilution program that deserves a close look.</p>
<p>The key here is that ISWH has laid down a recent track record of success in its telehealth and home healthcare segment and is verging on a breakout in commercial-stage operations for its cryptocurrency mining segment, producing what may be a major topline growth story now and throughout 2021.</p>

<p><strong>The Real Meal Deal</strong></p>
<p>ISW Holdings Inc (OTCMKTS:ISWH) isn’t a pretender in the Crypto space.</p>
<p>The company has made a significant investment in developing the Proceso Pod5ive datacenter pod, which is capable of driving Megawatt-level cryptocurrency computational mining power, has been fully assembled and is now ready for shipment to the 100 MW renewable energy Bit5ive LLC cryptocurrency mining project based in Pennsylvania.</p>
<p>“The job now is about bringing in revenues from participation in the Bit5ive Pennsylvania project while simultaneously building a track record for the Proceso, Pod5ive Data Center Pods as a global best-in-class solution for mining facilities around the world,” remarked Alonzo Pierce, President and Chairman of ISW Holdings.</p>
<p>“We have begun sourcing partnerships in this endeavor, and we feel our technology division has an extremely bright future ahead in step with the growing success of Bitcoin and the broader cryptocurrency space.”</p>
<p>While it apparently has an industry leading Power Usage Effectiveness (“PUE”) score of 1.06, and while Bitcoin has thundered higher, ISWH is still a micro-cap trading on the OTC, which means it will take work to drive it into the slipstream of the current bull market’s energy. OTC stocks don’t get “the benefit of the doubt”. They have to earn it.</p>
<p>But ISWH may be on that track.</p>

<p><strong>Shoring Up the Sheet</strong></p>
<p>But there’s another important dimension to note: as we approach that key moment where the company’s “pod5” crypto mining solution goes live and starts churning out mining revenues and then starts to attract interest as a product in the mining equipment space, the company has also recently taken another big step: streamlining its capital structure by curtailing dilution risk, canceling debt, and reducing outstanding shares by a substantial margin.</p>
<p>To wit, in ISWH’s most recent release: the company announced that it and its largest noteholders have reached an agreement whereby about 50% of the current convertible debt owed by the Company will be exchanged for restricted preferred equity, eliminating a significant portion of the dilution potential from convertible debentures now carried in the Company’s books.</p>
<p>According to the release, the Company and its largest noteholder have agreed to exchange convertible debentures (principal and interest) with an aggregate value of $602K for restricted Preferred B equity, thereby reducing total debt and significantly curtailing dilution potential over the coming months and years.</p>
<p>“The Preferred B Shares will be restricted for a period of one year,” said Pierce. “After one year, the Preferred B Shares can only be converted at a maximum 12.5% per quarter of the original common share issuance (a total of 4.5 million common shares). So basically, no more than 562,500 common shares will hit the market in any given quarter.”</p>

Why Digital Marketing is the Heart of the Bull Market (CRM, DOX, GEGR, TTD)https://www.mmjobserver.com/why-digital-marketing-is-the-heart-of-the-bull-market-crm-dox-gegr-ttd/34000/
https://www.mmjobserver.com/?p=34000
<div><img src=”https://www.mmjobserver.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/07/gooseEgg.jpg” class=”ff-og-image-inserted”></div><p>The stock market has been in “Full Bull” mode for the better part of the past decade. But no phase of that run has been as aggressive as we have seen in recent weeks when it comes to investor enthusiasm, especially when considers options market activity. Call option bets from retail market participants have started to verge on all-time records as the retail audience asserts itself perhaps for the first time since the late 1990’s.</p>
<p>And one of the key ideas driving that strength is how new technologies are transforming old industries, with marketing and advertising sitting near the center of that narrative.</p>
<p>While you may not have noticed it, digital marketing and advertising stocks have been lighting up the scoreboard, offering brands increasing value as companies search for new and innovative ways to engage with end market consumers.</p>
<p>With that in mind, we take a look at some of the most compelling opportunities in the space, including: Amdocs Limited (NASDAQ:DOX), salesforce.com inc (NYSE:CRM), Gaensel Energy Group (OTMKTS:GEGR), and Trade Desk Inc (NASDAQ:TTD).</p>

<p><strong>Amdocs Limited (NASDAQ:DOX)</strong> bills itself as a company that partners with the leading players in the communications and media industry, enabling next-generation experiences in 85 countries.</p>
<p>Its cloud-native, open, and dynamic portfolio of digital solutions, platforms and services brings greater choice, faster time-to-market, and more flexibility to better meet the evolving needs of our customers as they drive growth, transform and take their business to the cloud. Listed on the NASDAQ Global Select Market, Amdocs had revenue of $4.2 billion in fiscal 2020.</p>
<p>Amdocs Limited (NASDAQ:DOX) announced that Vodafone Romania and Amdocs partnered to jointly develop the Digital Experience platform for digitalizing the retail experience. This will give Vodafone Romania a 360-degree view of its customers across a number of touchpoints while integrating fixed and mobile communication products into a converged retail product. The project included moving several key components and capabilities into the AWS cloud.</p>
<p>The project is a key milestone in Vodafone Romania’s journey towards a technology communications company where strong internal software engineering capabilities enabled a new partnership model with Amdocs. Through the digital transformation of its retail experience, Vodafone Romania can now better understand its customers’ journeys by leveraging smart systems to interact with its customers in a more focused, tailored and effective way.</p>
<p>Even in light of this news, DOX hasn’t really done much of anything over the past week, with shares logging no net movement over that period. Shares of the stock have powered higher over the past month, rallying roughly 5% in that time on strong overall action.</p>
<p>Amdocs Limited (NASDAQ:DOX) generated sales of $1.1B, according to information released in the company’s most recent quarterly financial report. That adds up to a sequential quarter-over-quarter growth rate of 2.7% on the top line. In addition, the company is battling some balance sheet hurdles, with cash levels struggling to keep up with current liabilities ($983.9M against $1.2B, respectively).</p>

<p><strong>salesforce.com inc (NYSE:CRM)</strong> trumpets itself as a company that develops enterprise cloud computing solutions with a focus on customer relationship management. The company offers Sales Cloud to store data, monitor leads and progress, forecast opportunities, and gain insights through analytics and relationship intelligence, as well as deliver quotes, contracts, and invoices.</p>
<p>It also provides Service Cloud, which enables companies to deliver personalized customer service and support, as well as a field service solution that enables companies to connect agents, dispatchers, and mobile employees through a centralized platform, which helps to schedule and dispatch work, and track and manage jobs in real-time. In addition, the company offers Marketing Cloud to plan, personalize, and optimize one-to-one customer marketing interactions; Commerce Cloud, which enables companies to enhance engagement, conversion, revenue, and loyalty from their customers; and Community Cloud that enables companies to create and manage branded digital destinations for customers, partners, and employees.</p>
<p>salesforce.com inc (NYSE:CRM) most recently announced that it has collaborated with Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance, to help Gavi manage critical information to equitably distribute approximately two billion COVID-19 vaccines to 190 countries by the end of 2021.</p>
<p>According to the release, fair, rapid and equitable access to vaccines is critical to ending the global pandemic. Public-private partnerships, such as Gavi, which are focused on getting vaccines to some of the world’s poorest countries, need to be armed with data and technology to facilitate distribution at scale. The ability to manage huge volumes of country data is essential.</p>
<p>Even in light of this news, CRM has had a rough past week of trading action, with shares sinking something like -3% in that time. That said, chart support is nearby, and we may be in the process of constructing a nice setup for some movement back the other way.</p>
<p>salesforce.com inc (NYSE:CRM) pulled in sales of $5.4B in its last reported quarterly financials, representing top line growth of 20.1%. In addition, the company is battling some balance sheet hurdles, with cash levels struggling to keep up with current liabilities ($9.5B against $12.2B, respectively).</p>

<p><strong>Gaensel Energy Group (OTMKTS:GEGR)</strong> us an interesting name in the space because of its cheap price and recent powerful transition toward a new holding company model pursuing a diversified model with growing strategic interests in the Energy, Manufacturing, Software, and Technology markets.</p>
<p>The company has recently been rolling up properties toward the establishment of a market leading framework in the digital marketing, technology, and advertising space. Its recent moves suggest the potential to make serious waves in the industry, with ties to top global firms and a vision that includes the establishment of a cross-Atlantic powerhouse market position.</p>
<p>Gaensel Energy Group (OTMKTS:GEGR) recently announced the acquisition of Suite 110 SRL, providing dynamic solutions for Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs), with annual revenues in excess of $8,000,000 USD.</p>
<p>According to the release, Suite 110 SRL that provides an all-in-one CRM management, sales and marketing system, encrypted cloud storage for secure documents, project management, invoicing and accounting, warehouse, logistics and inventory optimization, connectivity for multi-bank and cash management, and a number of other features that provide businesses with a platform that streamlines operations in one secure platform.</p>
<p>The company’s founder and Director Helmut Gaensel stated, “This is one of a number of active acquisition targets we have and continue to be negotiating and today we are pleased to have finalized the acquisition of this additional Company. Our management team has identified a number of companies and Intellectual Property ripe for acquisition and expansion as a result of the pandemic.”</p>
<p>This dovetails with another acquisition that appears to be in the works with a company that has clients spanning the highest orders of the blue-chip ranks. As such, it isn’t surprising that the stock has been acting well over recent days, up something like 8% in that time. Shares of the stock have powered higher over the past month, rallying roughly 7% in that time on strong overall action.</p>
<p>Gaensel Energy Group (OTMKTS:GEGR) had no reported sales in its last quarterly financial data. In addition, the company is battling some balance sheet hurdles, with cash levels struggling to keep up with current liabilities ($455 against $463K, respectively).</p>

<p><strong>Trade Desk Inc (NASDAQ:TTD)</strong> is a cloud-based advertising-buying platform. Ad buyers can value each impression like traders value stocks, using first and third party data to decide which impression to buy and how much to pay. Its platform enables advertising clients to purchase and manage digital advertising campaigns across various formats, including connected TV (CTV), mobile, video, audio, display, social and native, on a multitude of devices, including smart TVs, computers, and mobile devices.</p>

The ID is an upgrade and an alternative to third-party cookies.</p>
<p>Even with that news, the action hasn’t really heated up in the stock, with shares moving net sideways over the past week.</p>
<p>Trade Desk Inc (NASDAQ:TTD) pulled in sales of $216.1M in its last reported quarterly financials, representing top line growth of 31.6%. In addition, the company is battling some balance sheet hurdles, with cash levels struggling to keep up with current liabilities ($557.3M against $1B, respectively).</p>
