In December–January, Progressive Planet Solutions Inc. (PLAN:TSX.V; ASHXF:OTC) acquired Absorbent Products for C$16.3 million and then proceeded with a funding, with these two factors keeping the price of the stock restrained. However, on the 10th of this month the company announced the completion of the first sizeable tranche of the private placement, with the rest expected to be completed shortly, which will then no longer act as a restraining influence on the stock price. With the price now hard down on support this, therefore, looks like a good point to buy.
The company is now a much larger concern thanks to its acquisition of Absorbent, which had revenues of over C$20 million in its latest fiscal year, so the pattern that has formed on the stock chart over the past year is not thought to be a top — rather it looks like a consolidation, and with the price now hard down on quite strong support it looks likely that it will start higher soon, particularly as the Accumulation line has remained buoyant over the past year.
On the six-month chart we can see that if PLAN does succeed in breaking higher here, the current tight bunching of price and moving averages promises a significant rally, so it is rated a a strong speculative buy here, perhaps with a stop some way below the trendline. Note that it trades in very light volumes on the US OTC market where for this reason it should be avoided for now, or limit orders employed.
