Could this be the news that sends BSGM towards its analyst provided price targets?
Currently, it is up an approximate 5% and has hit a high of $11.15.
If you haven't yet, read my initial BSGM report below and get it on your radar quickly.
Today, I'm bringing back to your attention a past champ NASDAQ profile with significant upside potential.
Previously, I released this profile on April 9th when it was trading around $4.85. By the time May 12th rolled around, it had climbed to a stunning high of $12.43.
Overall, that short-term move accounted for an approximate 153% surge!
With several new potential catalysts since the last time I made you aware of this NASDAQ idea, this stock could be headed for another breakout.
Right now, I want you to get BioSig Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: BSGM) on your radar.
BioSig Technologies, Inc., a medical technology company, engages in developing a proprietary biomedical signal processing platform designed to improve the electrophysiology (EP) marketplace.
At this moment, BSGM has several potential catalysts starting to bring serious buzz to this NASDAQ MedTech idea. Here they are:
#1 BSGM Potential Catalyst - Significant Price Targets
According to CNN's website, BSGM has two analyst provided price targets.
The first is a $13 target which gives BSGM upside potential of approximately 27% from Tuesday's closing valuation of $10.21.
The second is a $17 target which gives BSGM upside potential of approximately 66% from that same closing valuation yesterday.
If you are looking for a weighted average, it would be a $15 target which gives BSGM upside potential of approximately 46% from yesterday's close.
We haven't seen $13 breached yet in 2020, but if that does happen, $17 could be the next high it climbs to based on at least one analyst's opinion.
#2 BSGM Potential Catalyst - Bullish Technical Indicators
BSGM comes into Wednesday with several triggered technical indicator within the short, medium, and long-term.
