Past Champ (RELI) Is Up Approximately 11% And Could Be Heating Up Towards A Vertical Move
RELI is coming out hot this AM.
Trending green early and hitting a high of $3.89 so far, RELI is up approximately 11% at the moment.
Could we see potential resistance at the $4.00 level tested today?
Just over a week ago, RELI was trading over the $4.00 mark, so you'll want to watch it closely today as it trades over its 5-Day Simple Moving Average (SMA) and nears its 20-Day SMA.
If you haven't read my initial report below, do so now and get RELI on your radar quickly.
There's not a second to waste this morning as the opening bell just rang and the markets are open...
Today, I want to bring a past champ back to your attention as several potential catalysts could be signaling a possible vertical move in the short term.
Previously, I alerted you to this Nasdaq profile on Sunday, March 14th after it had closed on the prior Friday at $4.39.
That Monday, it rocketed to a high of $5.46 before reaching a high of $5.68 a day later.
From $4.39 to $5.68, this profile made a dollar+ move and ran almost 30% short term.
Now that I've got your attention, you're going to need to get this idea back on your radar again ASAP.
But first, let me ask you a question. What do you know about insurance agencies?
Insurance ("Ins") agencies act as intermediaries between Ins carriers and consumers.
Unlike carriers, agencies do not bear Ins risk.
The U.S. Ins broker and agency industry generated revenue of $164Bn in 2018.
The market has grown steadily over the past 5 years due to macroeconomic growth, beneficial legislation, and positive trends within the sector.
There is one company looking to make a name for themselves in this market and requires you immediate attention for Tuesday, April 20th:
Reliance Global Group, Inc. (RELI)
Reliance Global Group, Inc. is moving forward with its goal to operate in the Ins sector through its Ins brokerage agencies and online Ins businesses, and potentially other sectors. RELI's focus continues to be to grow the Company by pursuing an aggressive growth strategy of acquisition opp's, including Ins agencies. Ins agencies, as opposed to Ins carriers, bear no Ins risk.
And, in past couple years Reliance Global Group, Inc. has made numerous acquisitions that has them poised to grab Wall Street's attention.

We have also hired senior insurance industry executives to assist in both the rollout of our online offering, as well as accelerate our acquisition strategy. In addition, we significantly enhanced our balance sheet through the recent public offering for gross proceeds of $12.4Mn concurrent with our listing on the Nasdaq. The combination of these events provides us a much stronger platform to execute our organic growth and acquisition strategies.”
“In 2020, revenue increased 63%, reflecting our continued growth and execution of our business model. Importantly, we incurred significant company expenses in 2020 related to preparations for our Nasdaq listing, while at the same time, we invested heavily in our infrastructure and operations to support our continued expansion. As a result, we believe we have built a highly scalable operation with the potential for high recurring revenue and operating margins.”
