Tauriga Sciences (TAUG) Investors Find Metric +100% this Week

A 500% move may signal to sell the news, save some powder to accumulate smaller Cannabis stocks. I like that when you buy shares at nine or ten cents, you know exactly how much you can lose.

Shares in Tauriga Sciences TAUG are up 500% this year, and 100% this week as they prep for a product launch. Earlier this week, TAUG announced they have increased production of the Tauri-Gum™ inventory to support its ongoing commercial launch. In total, the Company has placed orders with its manufacturer for an additional 17,400 blister packs of Tauri-Gum™, on top of the 8,700 units that comprise the initial inventory tranche.

It feels like investors have a solid metric in measuring the blister pack production, in a sector that is starving for revenue metrics and real boots on the ground products. I like that you can test the product, or get feedback about adoption and come up with your own sales numbers, and it seems this has brought out the buyers, below you can see shares traded up from .07 cents topping short term around .19 cents on decent liquidity.

Keep in mind, a 500% move may signal to sell the news and maybe pick a better entry level; save some powder and accumulate these smaller Cannabis stocks. I like the fact that when you buy shares at nine or ten cents, you know exactly how much you can lose.

The sector has shown over the last few years, all the names are volatile and it is best to buy and hold (accumulate) versus trying to market time. If you believe in the sector (and I do) it is best to own as many names and be patient. I have no position here, and I want to caution you about following, or listening to any trading advice, make your own decisions in the microcap space, don’t trade tips, and trade long only.

The Company has continued to augment its inventory production, in response to what it believes to be, increasingly strong levels of interest from prospective distributors, retailers, and customers. TAUG is working with great diligence to gain market share for its CBD-Infused gum (“Tauri-Gum™”) and is encouraged by the feedback it has received at a number of important recent meetings.

“Studies have shown,” reads today’s news release, “that a chewing gum product may provide a superior delivery method for distributing its key active ingredients (such as CBD), in comparison to other oral dosage forms, such as: pills, capsules, beverages, and gummies. As an individual chews gum, the CBD is released from the gum quickly and is absorbed by the Oral Mucosa, rather than the Digestive System.”

Many of us economy-watchers have been expecting recession, though with significant differences on odds and timing. Regardless, recent banking developments just made recession more likely and may have accelerated its onset.
Many people think of position size in terms of how many shares they own of a particular stock. But it’s much smarter to think of it in terms of what percentage of your total capital is in a particular stock.
