Solarwindow Technologies Inc (OTCMKTS:WNDW) is a micro-cap stock that has grabbed hold of the attention of traders during the stock’s recent bounce. The most recent catalyst driving the action is the company’s announcement last week that it has been named a winner in the 2017 BIG Innovation Awards presented by the Business Intelligence Group.
According to the release, the BIG Innovation Awards recognize companies and people who bring new ideas to life, and change the way we experience the world. Organizations from across the globe submitted their innovations for consideration in the 2017 BIG Innovation Awards. Nominations were then judged by a select group of business leaders and executives who volunteer their time and expertise to score submissions and provide feedback. As you will note, WNDW’s core technology premise certain seems to fit the mold for this award.
Solarwindow Technologies Inc (OTCMKTS:WNDW) promulgates itself as a company that develops electricity-generating systems using see-through glass windows and flexible plastic products. It is developing SolarWindow electricity-generating systems that harvest light energy from the sun and artificial sources using a see-through, semi-transparent, and coating of organic photovoltaic solar cells.
WNDW is also involved in developing SolarWindowCommercial, a flat glass product for installation in new commercial towers under construction and replacement windows; SolarWindow Structural Glass, a structural glass walls and curtains for tall structures; SolarWindow Architectural Glass, a textured and decorative interior glass walls, room dividers, etc.; and SolarWindow Residential, a window glass for installation in new residential homes under construction and replacement windows.
It also engages in developing SolarWindow Flex, a flexible film that can be applied directly onto glass for retrofit to existing commercial towers, buildings, and residential homes; SolarWindow BIPV, components associated with BIPV applications in homes, buildings, and office towers; and SolarWindow Retrofit Veneer, a transparent, tinted, and flexible veneers that installers can apply directly over top of existing windows on tall towers and skyscrapers.

The BIG Innovation Award reflects an attitude toward this company that matches our own statements in the past:
It’s like one of those conversations you might have with a buddy at a bar: “Dude, they should make windows out of solar panels!”. We have over 430 million square feet of windows installed in the US alone. Imagine how much sunlight energy bounces off that square footage every day. With a hook like that, and less than 20 mln shares on the float, you can imagine how easy it might be to fall in love with WNDW stock if the details all added up.
The fact is, the details don’t all add up. They might someday. But, at this point, the company still hasn’t cracked the barrier over to the revenue phase. Until that happens, we are always skeptics first, and believers second. That said, the balance sheet is in great condition, and Solarwindow’s excess cash suggests go-to-market potential.
Recent action has seen 9% tacked on to share pricing for the name in the past week, a rally that has pushed up against longer standing distributive pressure in the stock. However, WNDW is a stock who’s past is littered with sudden rips. In addition, the company has registered increased average transaction volume recently, with the past month seeing 20% beyond its prior sustained average level.
Traders should note this as important with a float in play that’s limited — of 20M shares. Traders should not overlook this combination, as a mechanically driven price squeeze can result from this type of mix of small float and ramping attention from traders.
Earning a current market cap value of $98.3M, WNDW has a chunk ($1.8M) of cash on the books, which must be weighed relative to about $581K in total current liabilities. Solarwindow Technologies is pre-revenue at this point. This may be a very interesting story and we will look forward to updating it again soon.
