Fundamentals of blockchain stock BTL Group
On the one hand BTL Group is active in the hottest technology trend: blockchain. This is a blue ocean similar to the internet in 1997. The blockchain will disrupt industries in a once-in-a-decade fashion. It is happening in front of our eyes although many are not aware of it.
The key success factor now is to be ahead of the game. Every company that offers a blockchain must iterate its service as soon as possible to gain traction ahead of its peers. The companies active in this space right now are the ones that can benefit from first mover advantages, though they have to act fast.
We believe BTL Group is doing the right thing, gaining traction, validating its service to the market, on its way to become a first mover. We see that in the way they evolve their Interbit platform, its core blockchain service.
Moreover, the company recently announced to got another $15M of funding through a private placement. The exercise price of the shares was set at $7.00.
A quote from the press release:
“We are delighted to have completed this funding round, where we saw significantly increased investor demand given the recent progress and exciting news from the Company. The capital will be used to rapidly expedite our go to market strategy for our third generation blockchain platform, InterbitTM. As we have proven throughout this year in our customer journeys, InterbitTM meets the requirements of industry via its scalability and privacy, with the platform using its multiple connected blockchains, aiming to handle hundreds of thousands of transactions per second. Our plan is to deliver a product that will be relevant in many years to come, as we envisage widespread enterprise adoption of blockchain technology,” said Dominic McCann, CEO of BTL.
In sum, BTL Group is doing the right thing, fundamentally, and they are in a booming industry that is only starting to expand now.
Chart of BTL Group’s stock price going into 2018: buy or not?
The chart of BTL Group, going into 2018, looks awesome, provided that $7.00 holds. Uncoincidentally, this is also the exercise price of the recent private placement (see above).
We recently identified this almost ‘layered’ chart structure in BTL Group. This pattern will remain valid for as long as it continues to trade in that pattern. That may sound as simple and intuitive as it is, but the majority of investors have a very hard time investing with a pattern. They are too fast shaken out of their positions once support levels in ongoing patterns are tested. Even worse, they get shaken out because they read something somewhere from someone on the internet. The chart is your most reliable compass in markets, smart investors treat it with humbleness and with courtesy.
BTL Group’s stock chart reveals one key message: it will trade in its newly set (higher) trading range as long as it continues to trade above $7.00. If this pattern holds it will trade higher in 2018.
At InvestingHaven, we continue to be bullish on BTL Group, and buy the dip in 2018 for as long as the ongoing chart pattern is respected.
