US Stem Cell Inc (OTCMKTS:USRM) has been back in rally mode in recent action. This was a major momentum play from early last year – one of the most dramatic stories on the OTC from Jan to March of 2017, rising from deep sub-penny levels to nearly $0.20/share in that time. It was a truly extraordinary run. The catalyst then had to do with a lawsuit that was worked out in a benign fashion. However, this time around, the stock is up a quick 50% in a few days, and breaking out to new multi-month highs, and the move appears to be driven by some more basic ideas related to its core stem cell strategy.
To augment that narrative, the company just announced its participation in this year’s fourth annual Academy of Regenerative Practices’ Conference, which kicked off last week and ran through March 2 & 3 at the Bonaventure Resort & Spa in Weston, Florida. That conference has come and gone at this point, so the stock’s continued advance raises our eyebrows. We always get interested when a company has made a key presentation and then starts to run on no new headlines. It has the scent of possible “smart money” flows based on key ideas presented at the event. But first, before we get into that thesis, here is a quick overview of the company for those who aren’t familiar with the name.
US Stem Cell Inc (OTCMKTS:USRM) bills itself as a company committed to the development of effective cell technologies to treat a variety of diseases and injuries. By harnessing the body’s own healing potential, we may be able to reverse damaged tissue to normal function.
The company’s discoveries include multiple cell therapies in various stages of development that repair damaged tissues throughout the body due to injury or disease so that patients may return to a normal lifestyle.
USRM is focused on regenerative medicine. While most stem cell companies use one particular cell type to treat a variety of diseases, U.S Stem Cell utilizes various cell types to treat different diseases. It is our belief that the unique qualities within the various cell types make them more advantageous to treat a particular disease.
According to company materials, “USRM is an emerging enterprise in the regenerative medicine / cellular therapy industry. We are focused on the discovery, development and commercialization of cell based therapeutics that prevent, treat or cure disease by repairing and replacing damaged or aged tissue, cells and organs and restoring their normal function. We believe that regenerative medicine / cellular therapeutics will play a large role in positively changing the natural history of diseases ultimately, we contend, lessening patient burdens as well as reducing the associated economic impact disease imposes upon modern society.”
