As displayed by the chart, there were a number of catalysts responsible for the >2X valuation valuation namely: USTP Patent extension, FTC approval, Galgus CHT, and Galtronics Antenna. However, multiple insider sales (8 in 3 months) have fueled selling pressure. Not only did it dampen the momentum on Kroger's announcement, it also made the next three catalyst look bearish (i.e. F50 $1.1M contract, OTCBQ listing, and Echelon's note).
Currently the stock is oversold (29) and the MACD suggest that the sell cycle is diminishing. YFI.V has tested S1 ($0.305) earlier this month but we suspect that it is likely to consolidate at these levels. Currently, support on level 2 looks sturdy with a number of Anonymous orders on the bid.
Despite the negative trajectory, YFI.V has disruptive technology. Should it succeed, Echelon's target price for the year is $1.25 price. For now, YFI.V has to show the market that it can drive more revenue and minimize interference on its client networks and from itself. Below is our forecast for the week.
