Alarming statistics for the current market leaders…
Energy drinks have become a beverage of choice for many people looking for an alternative to coffee. But some of the ingredients and data about excessive consumption have raised red flags when it comes to consumer health.
Most of the negative effects of energy drinks are attributed to the high caffeine content. Experts agree that consuming more than 1,000 mg of the compound a day may lead to jitteriness, high blood pressure, rapid heart rate, and insomnia that could result in long-term poor sleeping habits. In some cases, it may even lead to muscle breakdown, fatigue, and increased urination.
PDPG strives to bring new and exciting products that are made with healthy, organic, and sustainably sourced to market on a regular basis.
Co-founder Leonard Armenta’s mantra is this, “Make sure that your business idea solves a problem or a need in the industry you are looking to become a part of. Know that you are willing to give everything you have to your business and lastly never try to be a know- it- all. Take advice from those who have been there and done that. Learn from those who you employ and do it without an ego.”
Could this mantra lead PDPG to the promised land?
Time will tell, but recent corporate actions could fuel this profile near term.
For now, here's 5 key potential catalysts including big 2022 news announcements to sink your teeth into.
No. 1 PDPG Potential Breakout Catalyst - Another Low Float Profile
According to the OTC Markets' website, PDPG has a low float.
The website reports this profile to have approximately 379,271 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 (like big news) could spark a vertical move in the short-term.
No. 2 PDPG Potential Breakout Catalyst - The "Pro Boost" Launch Could Bring Mainstream Attention

No. 3 PDPG Potential Breakout Catalyst - LOI Signed Towards Establishing A JV With EU-based Partner
Performance Drink Group Signs JV LOI with New European Partner Focused on R&D
PDPG Explores Heart- Healthy Ingredients Including a new Cann-a-bis Ingredient Range
WHEAT RIDGE, CO / ACCESSWIRE / March 7, 2022 / Performance Drink Group, Inc. (OTC PINK:PDPG) ("Performance Drink" or the "Company"), a new force in the manufacturing of unique Sports Nutrition and Energy Drinks, today announces a signed Letter of Intent (the "LOI") toward the establishment of a joint venture (the "JV") with a new EU-based partner that specializes in Research & Development.
Further details about the JV will be released over coming days and weeks.
The JV exists to foster the development of patent-protected trade secrets related to both raw ingredients and production processes for the fast growing beverage marketplace, with a particular emphasis on the development of a new and unique portfolio of ingredients, supplements, and products capable of promoting heart health.
"The goal of this partnership is to target game-changing R&D rooted in a very broad-spectrum sampling of natural ingredients, including olives, nuts, honeys, and, of course, cann-a-bis-based products," stated PDPG CEO David W. Lovatt, commenting from Portugal. "Once the definitive agreement has been signed by all parties, this venture stands to give Performance Drink Group access to stable, growing revenue streams spanning multiple continents capable of lasting long into the future underpinned by strong IP protection."
According to the Company's industry analysis, the dominant innovation channel in the market has traditionally been the development of new flavor extensions, with Monster® recently releasing their Dragon Fruit Flavor. But innovation is now starting to come in other areas where consumers are demanding improvements that push beyond flavor and into the domain of the core ingredients that make up the functional value of the drinks themselves.
Lovatt added, "Once these products have been developed and protected, we believe they will represent a game-changing step for an industry that currently remains very limited in its ability to offer consumers products free of negative health side effects. I am particularly interested in how our research might disrupt the cann-a-bis drink industry as it now operates."

No. 4 PDPG Potential Breakout Catalyst - Oversold Leaning Technicals Could Signal Reversal Potential
Going into Monday's opening bell, Barchart was reporting this profile to have several oversold leaning technicals.
These technicals could be signaling a healthy reversal in the near term.
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 (going into Monday's opening bell) that could signal PDPG to be leaning oversold and on the verge of a potential reversal.
- 9-Day Relative Strength Index: 39.47%
- 14-Day Relative Strength Index: 38.81%
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: 18.75%
- 14-Day Williams %R: 81.25%
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.
