After we understand what the company does and who they are, we must make sure the qualify for verification.

Next, we perform research on the company and their stock ticker. We ensure they are an OTC company and perform additional research to see if they would be a good candidate for verification.

Verify Information with Company

We verify the information exchanged with the company to make sure it’s valid and inline with the profile information provided by OTC Markets. We require companies to use the exact contact information provided on their OTC Market’s profile, and send a verification email request to their publicly listed email account.

If the company is a good fit and meets our verification criteria we introduce them to the community. We typically help them identify investors based on message board posts and posts tagged with their stock ticker.

News With Sentiment Analysis

News is just words. It’s really defined by how it is reacted to. Imagine you could read every piece of data on every OTC stock and do it while time was frozen.

Every piece of news with an instant, meaningful output

No Nonsense Identification of Promotions

Nonsense stock promotions will instantly be identified and applied to a ticker’s placement within the dataset. It’s about time right?
