The modern world has made all kinds of financial transactions much easier to manage, but unfortunately it has also enabled a far greater number of conmen, fraudsters and scam artists.
Although websites and payment providers do their best to make sure that your financial details are secure, we all need to be on our guard against financial scams.

Phishing

One of the most common of all financial scams is the phishing email. This is basically an email asking you to send money, and giving a list of sometimes plausible, sometimes wildly imaginative reasons why you should do so. Some of these are so clearly dodgy that we laugh at them: it seems ridiculous that anyone could fall for such an obvious scam. But in fact, it’s that very overconfidence that can make us vulnerable.

You may not be likely to send your bank account details to a supposed Nigerian prince wanting to outsource his personal treasury, but what about an email from a friend who tells you that they’re on holiday in Europe and have had their credit cards and passport stolen? The immediate impulse is to send them money as they request, but in fact this is an extremely common financial scam.

The chances are that your friend never left the country and is happily at home or at work. It’s so easy to check, but the emotional impact and sense of urgency in these emails is such that some people never do.

Unlikely investments

If someone offers you a great investment deal, the first rule of thumb is that if it sounds too good to be true, then it probably is. This goes for financial brokers who claim to have a foolproof get-rich scheme that you must get in on. (more…)

Stocks to Watch - Conversion Labs

We are all about investing in some great up-and-coming stocks at Zentrader. This is the first in a series where I’ll highlight some great stocks that I feel are ready to break out based on either fundamentals, technical analysis, or both.

Today, we’ll be looking at the rapidly growing health and wellness focused e-commerce company Conversion Labs (CVLB).

First Things First

As we have discussed over and over again, investing in individual stocks is not for everyone.  Make sure you are investing with money you can afford to lose if things go south. That being said, we all know that investing in individual stocks can be very lucrative if you pick the right ones.  There is no better way to beat the average market return than taking increased risk for the potential of improved returns!  Fortunes have been made in the stock market by taking small, calculated risks on fantastic companies!

Background on Conversion Labs – CVLB

Conversion Labs (CVLB) is an emerging leader in technology driven healthcare and telemedicine.  They apply their direct response marketing expertise to healthcare and provide a convenient, cost-effective and smarter way for consumers to access high quality OTC products and prescription medications.

Here are a couple quick facts about Conversion Labs:

  • CVLB is publicly traded on the OTCQB (middle tier over the counter “OTC” market)
  • Served over 850 million ad impressions over the past 2 years
  • Licensed for online Rx and physician consults in all 50 states
  • Ranked $164 on Deloitte’s 2018 Technology Fast 500 with 608% growth!

The reason why investing in Conversion Labs is so exciting is they present an end-to-end telehealth customer acquisition model:

Did you know that in a recent survey, 77% of patients prefer a physician who offers telemedicine?  This must be the reason that the global online pharmacy market is expected to triple over the next five years (from $42B to $107B by 2025)!  Conversion Labs is poised to capture revenue from these potential new customers as we see these large global shifts in patient demographics.

Fundamental Analysis of Conversion Labs – CVLB

Exciting things are happening with Conversion Labs.  In June 2019, Conversion Labs entered the telemedicine space with a strategic join venture with GoGoMeds.com, a large online pharmacy.  They also just announced a formal launch of their first telemedicine brand, Rex MD.

Here are some fundamentals for you to review:

  • Has a $14 million revenue run-rate and growing
  • Showing 32% YoY revenue growth
  • Reached 93% revenue CAGR (2015 – 2019 est)
  • Approx 90 million shares outstanding (fully diluted)
  • Current valuation of just $6.86 million
  • Every round of money which Conversion Labs has raised in the last 18 months has been at $0.23/share – this is unheard!
  • 52-week stock trading range: $0.10 – $0.29

You read that correctly – currently Conversion Labs is valued and less than $7 million when their annual revenue for 2019 is estimated at $12 million!  CVLB just closed recently at $0.15 per share.  These fundamentals look great, and honestly I am quite surprised we are seeing funding rounds come it at a premium to market share price.  That is a very strong message which investors are sending.  Now may be the perfect time to take a long position!

Note – Many of these facts were pulled from the following investor presentation.  Give it a look and form your own opinion.

Technical Analysis of Conversion Labs – CVLB

We’ve established that the fundamentals are strong for Conversion Labs.  I always like to take a look at technical analysis as well to see if this can provide investment clues.  Below, you will see a graph of the past 5-years of Conversion Labs.  As you can see, prices have been a bit range bound between $0.35 and $0.08.  We did see a huge pop all the way to $0.95 back in March of 2017.  Wouldn’t another one of those be great :-).

You will notice that there is some REAL support at around the $0.12 level which is helping to prop this stock up.  Currently, the stock is trading around the 50-day moving average.  Both of these facts tell us that now would likely be a good time to buy as the stock is not currently trading at a premium to historic levels.

We would say this stock is a strong buy at the $0.12 level based on technical analysis.  We have seen those prices just over the past couple of weeks, so now may be your opportunity if you have made the decision to go long.

If you suffer from anxiety or panic attacks, you are definitely not alone. In fact, about 40 million Americans have an anxiety disorder. From social anxiety to generalized anxiety disorder to post- traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), these illnesses are becoming more common in the United States. A highly convenient and accessible way to manage your anxiety is to talk to a professional online, such as a therapist or counselor from an online service like BetterHelp.com. However, here are some tips to help you in your day-to-day that you can start immediately.

Just Breathe

Sometimes it is really just that easy. Take a deep breath. Let it out. Repeat. In fact, focusing on breathing is a form of meditation, which we know has been an effective treatment for anxiety for years. Try it. It may just work.

Count to 10

Yes, counting can really help you when you are suffering from anxiety. Similar to meditation, just concentrating on something besides your anxiety can help. By focusing on counting, you allow your mind to let go of those other annoying thoughts that are causing the anxiety. And if counting to 10 does not work for you, try counting to 20.

Take a Hike

You probably already know that exercise is good for you. Not only physically but mentally because it increases the endorphins, which are the hormones that make you feel good. Getting outside and walking is even better for you because the sunshine is also good for you (increases Vitamin D) and the fresh air is even better.

You Are What You Eat

Getting the right amount of vitamins and not eating junk food is essential to physical and mental health. You cannot fill up on caffeinated beverages and fast food if you want to feel better. Fats, cholesterol, caffeine, and alcohol are all recommended to be avoided by those who have anxiety. Instead, try some fruit or even a piece of dark chocolate.
