And right now, this company has several potential catalysts to know. Check them out:
No. 1 KBNT Potential Catalyst - Outsiders And Insiders Show Significant Interest
It's worth noting that outside in-vest-ors and insiders are increasing stakes significantly.
For instance, Saudi Arabian in-vest-ment company Mithuq Capital SPC increased its stake in the company to 10.1% recently.
Notably, Mithuq also owns a reported $300Mn stake in Tremor (NASDAQ; TRMR), an ad-tech company that KBNT has ties to.
Thus, connecting the speculative dots, Mithuq's interest there, especially with the three already linked, could bode well for additional Mithuq interest in Kubient going forward.
And, by the way, insiders aren't giving up equity, either. They, too, have been accumulating, with the reporting group now owning about 40.1% of the outstanding st-ock.
Moreover, not a single insider sold shares at any time last year.
Thus, while many small-cap in-vest-ors get the "needed cash to pay taxes" selling excuse from insiders, KBNT shareholders had none of that.
That's indeed a vote of confidence.
Not only that, when 41% of company shares are aligned with its retail base, good things tend to happen.
No. 2 KBNT Potential Catalyst - Another Low Float Profile
According to the Yahoo Finance website, KBNT has a low float.
The website reports this profile to have approximately 8.34Mn 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 could help spark a vertical move in the short-term.
No. 3 KBNT Potential Catalyst - Reporting Net Revenue Increases in YoY And QoQ Results
Kubient Reports Strong Third Quarter 2021 Results
Company Records Net Revenue Increase of 141% Year-Over-Year and 35% Quarter-Over-Quarter

Third Quarter 2021 and Recent Operational Highlights

- The number of total direct publisher partnerships that have authorized Kubient to sell their inventory is currently 3,270, a decrease of 298 from the prior quarter. The decrease in publishers was a result of KAI identifying and removing fraudulent websites within the Audience Cloud
- Revealed figures on the state of ad fraud as identified by the company's proprietary ad fraud detection tool, Kubient Artificial Intelligence ("KAI")
- During the three months ended September 30, 2021, Kubient continued its expansion of KAI and performed 8 KAI audits with prospective customers. Year to date, the Company has performed a total of 14 KAI audits
"It is greatly encouraging to recognize a record net revenue increase of 141% year-over-year and 35% quarter-over-quarter, as we continue to steadily expand and recognize that advertisers and publishers are starting to embrace our concept of a transparent and fraud free marketplace," said Kubient Founder, Chairman, CSO, and Interim CEO Paul Roberts. "With our sales team increasingly speaking to more prospective customers, a common underlying theme we have unveiled is that companies continue to be very interested in our technology and our ability to help them generate a higher ROI, in a safe and efficient manner. The growing interest centers around KAI, as we've performed a total of eight KAI audits in the third quarter and 14 audits year to date. Though we are in the early stages of the industry adopting KAI, we are confident in our ability to capitalize on the growing opportunities and expanding our footprint."
"In conjunction with our organic growth strategy, we are continuing to make progress with our M&A initiative. We are deep in the due diligence phase with several companies and have signed a number of non-binding LOIs, of which we are confident will not only result in acquisition but will add lasting value to our growth strategy. It has been our goal to bolster both the publisher and advertising side of the Audience Cloud marketplace equation, and I am confident that our M&A efforts will help increase our marketplace both vertically and horizontally. As the year comes to a close, we remain laser focused on executing across all fronts and getting one step closer towards transforming the digital advertising industry."

No. 5 KBNT Potential Catalyst - Key Technicals Could Signal Possible Near Term Healthy Reversal
As of close on Tuesday, Barchart was reporting this profile to have key oversold leaning technicals.
These technicals could be signaling a healthy reversal in the near term for KBNT.
Here's the definition of a "reversal" from Investopedia:
"A reversal is a change in the price direction of an asset. A reversal can occur to the upside or downside. Following an uptrend, a reversal would be to the downside. Following a downtrend, a reversal would be to the upside. Reversals are based on overall price direction and are not typically based on one or two periods/bars on a chart."
Now, here are some key technicals (as of close Tuesday) that could signal KBNT to be leaning oversold and on the verge of a potential reversal.
- 9-Day Relative Strength Index: 34.85%
- 14-Day Relative Strength Index: 36.72%
When these numbers drop down to the 30% range and lower, they can be viewed as being in oversold territory. While in this territory, they can paint the picture of a profile that is undervalued.
Keep an eye on these technicals closely.
