Hitting The Ground Running, Low Float Nasdaq Idea (KBNT) Trends Green First Thing This AM (Read Immediately)

January 26th

SCF Readers,

Surging out of the opening bell, full focus needs to be on KBNT this morning.

Trending green up approximately 9% early and hitting a high of $2.57, KBNT is trading above two key lines of potential support that could be signaling a continued bullish move near term.

Those two lines it trades above are its 5-day Simple Moving Average and its 5-Day Exponential Moving Average.

Remember, it was only just this month that KBNT was trading above $3.00 and it also has a 52-week high of $16.00+.

Now, I'm not saying this profile is going to make moves to either of those levels today, but you need to be aware of this Nasdaq idea's potential upside.

On top of that, as I mentioned in my report, this is a low float profile which means that volatility can be ever-present on a daily basis.

Take a moment now to get KBNT on your radar and read my initial report below as quickly as possible.

On the hunt once again for under-the-radar profiles, I've come across something riddled with potential.

In fact, it reminds me of a recent Nasdaq idea, MYNZ.

Brought to your attention back on December 8th, MYNZ went full on beast mode over the last few weeks.

Running from $8.55 to last week's brain-bending high of $30.00, MYNZ stunned the markets running approximately 250% since my alert.

Boom.

But it's time to look forward to a new breakout idea with a ton of upside potential based on several potential catalysts I'll highlight below.

For Wednesday, January 26th, there is one Nasdaq tech profile to get on your radar immediately:

*Kubient, Inc. (KBNT)*

Kubient is a technology company with a mission to transform the digital advertising industry to audience-based marketing. Kubient's next generation cloud-based infrastructure enables efficient marketplace liquidity for buyers and sellers of digital advertising.

The Audience Marketplace is the solution for brands and publishers that demand transparency and the ability to reach audiences across all channels and ad formats.

And right now, this profile has 5 potential catalysts that could spark it to a vertical move near term. Here's what you need to know:

No. 1 - Outsiders And Insiders Show Significant Interest

No. 2 - Another Low Float Profile

No. 3 - Reporting Net Revenue Increases in YoY And QoQ Results

No. 4 - New Partnership Could Be Long Term Game-Changer

No. 5 - Key Technicals Could Signal Possible Near Term Healthy Reversal

But more on those in a second...

Digital Transformation Is Driving Unprecedented Digital Advertising Growth

Industry Problems

Ad Fraud

  • In 2019, advertisers lost $42Bn to ad fraud.
  • Ad fraud is when an ad is displayed to a fake website or bot to falsely inflate web traffic numbers & sell false advertising space.
  • Current machine learning & fraud prevention solutions can only identify such fraud AFTER an ad purchase has already occurred. Fraud is expected to reach $100Bn by 2023.

Fragmentation

  • Ad markets have become fragmented & siloed, creating an inefficient supply path and lack of transparency between supply & demand.

Latency

  • Delayed or loading wait times.

Waste

  • Up to 30% of advertising is not seen by a human audience.
  • $37Bn of worldwide marketing budgets are being wasted on poor digital performance.
  • Publishers struggle to effectively monetize their audiences due to too many vendors that take a percentage of revenue.

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

Continued Expansion of KAI Platform Drives Strong Momentum Heading into 2022

NEW YORK, Nov. 10, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Kubient, Inc. (NasdaqCM: KBNT, KBNTW) ("Kubient" or the "Company"), a cloud-based software platform for digital advertising, today reported fin-an-cial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2021.

Third Quarter 2021 and Recent Operational Highlights

  • Net revenue increased 141% year-over-year and 35% quarter-over-quarter, as a result of an increase in partnerships on both the supply and demand side of the Audience Cloud marketplace
  • Partnered with Verve Group to increase transparency and reduce fraud in the advertising supply chain. The partnership opens up premium inventory for advertisers working with Verve Group, and enables Kubient's publishers the ability to access additional premium inventory from Verve Group, ultimately creating more transparency and efficiency for brands and agencies
  • Publisher inventory that Kubient can monetize, or ad impression opportunities, for the Audience Cloud, Kubient's flexible open marketplace for both advertisers and publishers to reach, monetize and connect their audiences, increased 156% from Q2 2021 to Q3 2021
  • 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

Management Commentary

"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. 4 KBNT Potential Catalyst - New Partnership Could Be Long Term Game-Changer

Kubient Partners with Verve Group to Increase Transparency and Reduce Fraud in Advertising Supply Chain

Advertisers Working with Verve Group Can Now Access Premium Inventory from Kubient via Verve Group's DS

PNEW YORK, Oct. 27, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Kubient (NasdaqCM: KBNT, KBNTW) ("Kubient" or the "Company"), a cloud-based software platform for digital advertising, today announced a mutually beneficial partnership with Verve Group, a privacy-first omnichannel ad platform connecting advertisers and publishers to people in real time. The partnership opens up premium inventory for advertisers working with Verve Group, and enables Kubient's publishers the ability to access additional premium inventory from Verve Group, ultimately creating more transparency and efficiency for brands and agencies.

"We hear from our brands and agencies that they want more transparency throughout the bidding process, but are continuously faced with partners that have multiple vendors. This can impact the price of inventory and raise questions around the quality of inventory being sold and purchased," said Ryan Adams, SVP of Partnerships at Kubient. "By partnering with Verve Group, we're providing a seamless process for our advertisers to access quality inventory that's specific and relevant to the audiences they are trying to reach. This partnership will also tremendously impact our supply side partners, by expanding the number of advertisers that can bid on their inventory, which benefits all parties."

The partnership with Verve Group will rapidly expand Kubient's direct selling offerings, allowing for the team to continue building out a robust demand side of the business. Kubient looks to create greater revenue opportunities by opening up its publisher's inventory to Verve Group.

"Kubient is a great partner for Verve Group, as we continue to evolve as a business and disrupt the ad tech landscape for both demand and supply partners," said Sameer Sondhi, Co-CEO at Verve Group. "Our team is always looking at ways to expand the breadth of inventory we can offer brands. By making Kubient's inventory available through Verve Group, our advertisers can expand the types of audiences they engage through campaigns. Additionally, we are also excited to offer Verve Group's high-quality inventory for Kubient partners."

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.
