For traders and investors interested in a deep value play in the rapidly growing security space, DirectView Holdings, Inc (OTCMKTS:DIRV) offers some under-the-radar potential at an extremely cheap price. The stock has been under distribution but is now testing very important chart support, and the company just hit the wires with a game-changing set of financial results.
The big news here is the record sales growth. The stock has been on the decline because the balance sheet is a little heavy – as is the case with any speculative high-growth story. The bet is always about whether or not the sales growth acceleration will kick in fast enough to light the fire. In this case, with the company producing a record growth pace so far in 2018, the market will have to reconsider its recent bias, and a vault back to the upside could be potentially in order here.
As noted in the company’s press release to kick off this week, we are now seeing the growth acceleration kick into gear, with 70% sales growth to a record $2.3 million so far in 2018. The company also noted a 73% growth rate for overall product sales to a record $1.9 million, and 57% growth in services sales to a record $0.4 million.
In other words, the fire has been lit. Given that the total market capitalization right now – after the recent bout of weak action in terms of market price per share – is down under $800K, this could be a very good time to give this stock a close look.
Another point to make here is that isn’t just about the top line. Gross profitability is growing as well. According to the company’s most recent release, DIRV saw a 37% gross profit growth to a record $1.0 million during the first half of this year. That included a 64% growth in product gross profit to a record $0.9 million and a 185% increase in SG&A.
Roger Ralston, DirectView’s CEO, chimed in on the strong data, stating, “DirectView’s first half of 2018 performance generated the highest sales and profits of any period in our history. As we continue our technology and acquisition investments, we realize significant adoption and scale will take time. The results speak for themselves and we remain laser focused and bullish on our strategy.”
