Directview Holdings Inc (OTCMKTS:DIRV) is a stock we profiled a few days ago as a potential breakout in the making. The action has continued to heat up leading to an explosion higher to start this week, with shares launching nearly 100% higher on the day on a continued ramp in trading volume. There doesn’t appear to be any particular clear catalyst for the move, but the company has put out a series of catalysts of late, and this one is certainly no stranger to “investor awareness” activity over the years.
The most recent tangible catalyst doesn’t scream of an explanation for this move, but it should be noted: a few days ago, the company announced that it intends to relaunch a fully redesigned ApexCCTV.com website in the summer of 2018. This refers to a recent acquisition by the company, and one that, reportedly, has been strong on the top-line. Perhaps the reminder of this asset has helped to foment enthusiasm over the course of this move.

As noted above, DIRV shares have been on a major bull trend over the past month – one that boiled over on Monday in the form of a high-volume breakout leading to nearly triple-digit single-day gains.
This comes in the context of strong company performance in revenue growth, but also into the teeth of a troubled balance sheet featuring a low cash balance that contends with over $5M in current liabilities. But the ApexCCTV deal apparently continues to be a bull item.
Roger Ralston, DirectView CEO, stated: “ApexCCTV.com generated over $10 million since its inception, and approximately $2.7 million in revenue in 2016 alone. We strongly believe that an investment in the redesign of the ApexCCTV.com site will enable us to unlock additional growth potential for this important aspect of DirectView’s business. By providing an interactive experience with in-depth product information that is fully SEO optimized, we are confident that we can expand our customer base, attract new product suppliers, grow revenue and build lasting value for our shareholders.”
Now commanding a market cap of $308.54k, DIRV has a store ($203K) of cash on the books, which must be weighed relative to about $5.3M in total current liabilities. One should also note that debt has been growing over recent quarters. DIRV is pulling in trailing 12-month revenues of $2.8M. In addition, the company is seeing major top-line growth, with y/y quarterly revenues growing at 1342%. As more color becomes clear on the name, we will review the situation and update our take.
