Shares of Alpine 4 Technologies Ltd (OTCMKTS:ALPP) have been launching in recent days, propelled by strong financial performance. In that vein, the company just announced that it is providing preliminary guidance for its Q3 2019 sales. This was effectively a guidance move, and it clearly reshaped the action in the stock.
According to the release, the company expects to report for the period ending Q3 2019 sales of $6.9 million which is revenue growth of approximately 43% over Q3 2018. Alpine 4 also is estimating for the first 9 months of 2019 that its revenue will exceed $20 million. If there is an oddity here, it lies in the fact that a stock trading with a market cap under $5M could possibly be making this much money as a company. There is either a funny odor or a big opportunity at hand. Time will tell.
