Past Champ (SPONF) Has 5 Potential Catalysts To Know Ahead Of Today's Opening Bell
(US: SPONF) (CSE: SPO)
I've been eyeballing a specific past champ closely and want you to get it back on your radar this second.
To be blunt, there are 2 key reasons to soak in right now:
- First, when I brought this past champ to your attention back in January of 2021, it ran from a sub-penny $.007 level (which it is at once again), to a high of $.0318 high for an approximate run of 354%.
- Second, because I alerted you again in February of 2021 before it went on a run from approximately 272% from a low of $.0295 to a high of $.11.
Could its next big breakout be taking shape as we speak?
With this profile now trading at sub-penny levels, it is displaying a stunning amount of upside potential to its 52-week high of $.11.
Now, I'm not saying this profile is going to soar to $.11 this week, but due to its disruptive advertising model, multi-channel distribution network, and several potential catalysts, I want you to turn your full attention again to this past champ for Wednesday, February 9th:
SponsorsOne Inc. (OTC: SPONF)

Combined, this allows the brands to build and manage exclusive and highly engaged communities of influencers (from pro to micro-influencers) within the social realm.
And right now, this past champ has 5 potential catalysts that could lead to its next possible breakout:
The No. 1 SPONF Potential Catalyst
SponsorsOne Provides an Operational Update and Goals for 2022 Company
Waterloo, Ontario – TheNewswire - January 20, 2022 - SponsorsOne Inc., a company that utilizes its proprietary platform that combines digital marketing, wholesale and retail distribution, branding, and operational & funding capital, giving it a competitive first-mover advantage in rapidly growing its proprietary brands focused in the Alcohol, Functional Beverage, and He-mp Sectors is pleased to provide an operational update and focus for 2022.
Myles Bartholomew, CEO of SponsorsOne, said, "Last year, we launched Doc Wylder's in several test markets to establish product-market fit with major retailers like Costco and Ralphs. The table is now set to scale Doc Wylders in the USA and Internationally."
IWSR states: "The market for ready-to-drink (RTD) alcohol products continues to show traction and demand from consumers. RTD volumes have been growing faster than any other major drinks category since 2018 and are expected to significantly outperform the wider beverage alcohol market over the next five years, increasing their market share to 8% by 2025 (from about 4% share in 2020) in top RTD markets."
2021 Review – Summary
- Doc Wylder's product line was introduced and adopted by regional and national distributors. Costco and Ralph's test-marketed the product, and in both retailers, we exceeded the minimum sales required for additional purchasing.
- We introduced the Smithville, 4 Corners, and Riverview spirits products to test market demand among retailers and distributors.
- We created a new product division to focus on C-B-D He-mp Smokes and secured large-scale production capacity. Discussion among distribution and retailers helped us refine the launch strategy for 2022.
- 2021 Revenues represented the sample orders placed in retailers and our online ecommerce platform.
- The SponsorCoin platform was upgraded with a new software language to provide the scaling capability for security and reliability.
2022 Outlook – Summary
- SponsorsOne's capital structure and markets will be a priority in 2022, focusing on shifting the shareholder narrative to operational execution with visibility of financial metrics to map and track the Company's progress. The narrative in 2021 was about the build as we entered the Brand creation market.
- We are focusing on the distribution channels and regions that proved successful. In large national grocery, we are expanding our market coverage with Ralph/Krogers through the relationship with RNDC. In the national club channels, we are working towards a larger regional program with Costco. In the specialty channel, Doc Wylder's expects to replicate the success at Lee's Liquors in Nevada in high growth markets like California and Arizona.
- Debt versus Equity will focus on financing purchase orders and inventory. In 2021 we used equity to finance start-up inventory. As our client base grows and revenue becomes predictable, we can transition to debt financing (Purchase Order and Invoice Financing), which is much less costly than equity.
- New co-packer relationships are being developed that can more efficiently handle the bottling and packaging of the Doc Wylder’s product.
- Some packaging design changes have occurred, allowing for higher production capacity and maintaining the re-sealable lid on Doc Wylder's.
- The Spirits business will move to a control label strategy whereby we will sell the spirits Brands to distributors or influencers. Discussions are ongoing around the sale of the Smithville, 4 Corners and Riverview Brands. The sale includes all the inventory, brand design, goodwill, and our support to continue to supply the Brand owner with the product.
- With He-mp Smokes, we expect distribution agreements in place in the first half of 2022 and will use 2022 to scale up production, marketing, and general market acceptance of the three brands we created. Both USA and International distribution discussions are making progress.
- The SponsorCoin platform is intended to beta test around the Doc Wylders Brand this year, validating the community commerce model of digital engagement. We are seeing the shift of the influencer to the authentic community, which supports the idea of decentralization away from large, centralized influence. The data generated will allow us to tune messaging and engagement leading to increased sales.
In summary, 2022 will be a transition year from development to growth. With CV issues still present and taxing the supply chain, our management team will continue to balance the inventory levels to ensure quick order turnaround while managing the On-Demand supply chain, reducing the need for internal capital. It will be a challenging year for us, but the groundwork achieved in 2021 sets SponsorsOne up for a successful 2022.

The No. 2 SPONF Potential Catalyst
As of close on Monday, Barchart was reporting this profile to have several oversold leaning technicals.
These technicals could be signaling a healthy reversal in the near term for SPONF.
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 Monday) that could signal SPONF to be leaning oversold and on the verge of a potential reversal.
- 9-Day Relative Strength Index: 31.42%
- 14-Day Relative Strength Index: 33.34%
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.
- 14-Day Raw Stochastic: 9.09%
- 14-Day Williams %R: 90.91%
As the Raw Stochastic nears the 10% range and lower and the Williams %R nears the 90% range or higher, these technical indicators may also be viewed as oversold and undervalued.
Keep an eye on these technicals closely.
