Here's a recap:
- From an October 20th open of $2.14, KULR has now run to a high of $3.81 on November 15th for a short term surge of 78%.

That said, I've been tracking a new profile closely which could be breakout bound near term due to several potential catalysts.
For Tuesday, November 23rd, there is only one profile to have on your radar:
*Iconic Brands, Inc. (ICNB)*
Iconic is a vertically integrated innovative beverage and lifestyle branding company with expertise in developing, branding, licensing, manufacturing and distributing alcoholic beverages for itself and third parties.

No. 2 ICNB Potential Breakout Catalyst - Another Low Float Profile
According to the OTC Markets' website, ICNB has a low float.
The website reports this profile to have approximately 10.00Mn shares in its float.
Why is that important? It's important on one crucial level. Volatility.
With so few shares available for trading, other potential catalysts (like big news) could spark a vertical move in the short-term.
