Kush Bottles Inc (OTCMKTS:KSHB) broke key chart support on Friday, cracking sharply under the critical $6/share level on a clear jump in trading volume.

As noted above, shares of the stock cracked key support on Friday in a move that doesn’t really mesh with the company-level catalysts in play for the stock at the time, suggesting that we are dealing with a move that is more technical in nature.
In fact, the move to add Mr. Hunter to the board seems like a positive for further cultivating legitimacy in a market space starved for strong expressions of that attribute.
“Don has more than 25 years of public company experience and brings a wealth of knowledge in corporate governance and internal control, financial reporting, process improvements, mergers and acquisitions, international operations, and strategic planning. We look forward to his contributions as a member of our board of directors,” said Nick Kovacevich, Chairman and CEO of Kush Bottles.
Mr. Hunter commented, “I’m pleased to join the Board at such a promising time in the company’s development. Kush Bottles is uniquely positioned to thrive in the growing cannabis market and I look forward to working with its Board and management team to help scale the business and develop long-term value for shareholders.”
KSHB is a stock with a past that has featured a litany of sudden rips to the upside. What’s more, the listing has seen a growing influx of trading interest, with the stock’s recent average trading volume running a bit over 330% above the average volume levels in play in this stock over the longer term. This is particularly important due to the extremely small float size in the stock (of 9.7M shares).
Now commanding a market cap of $324.4M, KSHB has a significant war chest ($5.5M) of cash on the books, which compares with about $1.9M in total current liabilities. One should also note that debt has been growing over recent quarters. KSHB is pulling in trailing 12-month revenues of $25.2M. In addition, the company is seeing major top-line growth, with y/y quarterly revenues growing at 257.9%. This may be a very interesting story and we will look forward to updating it again soon.
