This NYSE American Past Champ (KULR) Requires Full Attention Due To Key Analyst Coverage And Revenue News
Taglich Brothers Inc. Analyst Provides $4.50 Price Target
I've been keeping a close eye on a past champ that looks like it has been inching towards another potential breakout after stringing a handful of green closes together last week and on Monday too.
When I brought this profile to you previously, there were several factors that were signaling a potential vertical move, and, well, you saw it come true first hand.
Moving roughly 34% (approx.) in just over a month, the profile which appeared undervalued at the time climbed the charts in an impressive fashion.
But that's just the tip of the iceberg on this past champ...
Space: The Final Frontier (And A Potentially Lucrative Market)
While watching the daily news, it seems we are getting closer to commercial space travel.
It was recently that we all watched as Amazon founder, Jeff Bezos, blasted into Space on his rocket company's first flight and more recently lifted-off with Captain Kirk himself, William Shatner.
Shortly before that, Richard Branson, Virgin Galactic founder, shot off into space himself in a rocket he helped fund.
And obviously we've been reading about SpaceX and Elon Musk for years.
To say the least, the past year has been a landmark moment for the commercial space industry.
Millions are enthralled by the thought of leaving the surface and testing the waters of space travel. Granted, while space tourism companies aren’t quite ready to send folks into space just yet, the industry is seeing demand.
In fact, according to analysts at Cowen, “39% of people with a net worth of more than $5Mn are interested in paying at least $250k for a flight.”(1)
Better, by 2040, Morgan Stanley believes the industry could be worth about $1Tn.(2)
So why do I bring all this up?
One NYSE American whose TRS technology was chosen by NASA to safely ship and store batteries aboard the International Space Station is being overlooked, but maybe not for much longer.
And, with the ever growing number of Electric Vehicles (EVs) on the road today, companies are looking for more efficient, safe and effective battery options.
That's why I want you to turn your attention to this company ASAP:

KULR Technology Group Receives Special Permit from the U.S. Department of Transportation Authorizing Transport of Damaged, Defective, or Recalled (DDR) Batteries
A trio of recently granted DoT special permits enables the Company to strategically pursue regulatory markets ranging from shipping prototype batteries to end of life battery management
SAN DIEGO, CA / ACCESSWIRE / July 28, 2021 / KULR Technology Group Inc. (NYSE American:KULR) (the "Company" or "KULR"), a leading developer of next-generation lithium-ion battery safety and thermal management technologies, announced today it received a special permit, its third in two months, from the U.S. Department of Transportation (DoT) authorizing commerce transportation of damaged, defective, or recalled (DDR) lithium ion cells, batteries, or lithium metal cells contained in or packed with KULR's proprietary Thermal Runaway Shield (TRS) packaging.
The granting of the recent DDR special permit marks a key strategic step for KULR as it continues to push its Thermal Runaway Shield as an integrated design solution providing total battery safety for more efficient battery systems, increased sustainability, and end of life battery management. The Company's solutions have been proven by various government testing authorities to stop or mitigate the impacts of dangerous lithium-ion battery failures known as thermal runaway which can occur during transportation of batteries.
The granting of KULR's third special DoT permit validates the commercial and regulatory viability of its passive propagation resistant (PPR) solution. Previously, in October 2020, the Consumer Product Safety Commission reported KULR's design solutions could stop fires and explosions in lithium-ion battery packs, and provided additional insights on the future of safe battery technology. In 2019, KULR provided NASA with a solution to protect laptop computer battery packs aboard the International Space Station (ISS).
"Damaged, defective, or recalled lithium-ion batteries can present tremendous safety risks to people, property, and the environment if they are improperly handled, stored or disposed of," said Keith Cochran, KULR President & COO. "We live in an increasingly portable and digital society in which we routinely see rechargeable batteries or battery centric products suffer damage or defect which require a recall. We've seen it with children's toys, scooters, laptops, mobile phones, online shopping, and of course electric vehicles. With further adoption of Li-ion technology, we believe there will be an ever-increasing need for KULR's Thermal Runaway Shield (TRS) packaging. Our DDR special permit, along with our recently attained prototype battery special permit and recycling special permit, strategically establishes KULR as an end to end provider of safe battery shipping solutions, no matter the mode of transfer."
