News can play a significant role in the investment world. It can provide investors with key information to help make investment decisions. But it doesn’t stop there; news can also affect the way investors feel about a certain company, industry, or market.
In other words, news stories have the ability to shape and influence the emotions and opinions surrounding a stock, which can drive the decision to buy or sell.
News stories can often be a catalyst for movement in the stock market. Investors are constantly on the search for positive and even negative news in an attempt to gauge which direction a stock may go. This is especially true in OTC markets, where companies are releasing information that is oftentimes critical to the stock’s success.
Let’s take a look at four OTC stocks with recent news for investors to put on their watchlist.
Raadr Inc. (OTC: RDAR) is a technology and software development company that provides cutting-edge solutions to detect and combat cyberbullying and cyberharassment throughout the internet on social media platforms. Raadr is known as the Internet anti-bullying company.
Raadr’s products allow children, parents, school districts, and law enforcement to monitor bullying and other threatening behavior across social media and the metaverse in real time.
RAADR Parental 2.0, a parental monitoring and student reporting social media application, allows parents to protect children by using real-time monitoring across all major social media platforms and the metaverse to report cyberbullying, suicidal thoughts, and threatening behavior.
On January 24, the company issued news detailing updates regarding their RAADR Parental 2.0 application. Samed Nisar, project manager, stated, “We are pleased to announce that after a lot of hard work and determination on behalf of the entire RAADR development team, we have completed stage one of the RAADR application development and are ready to launch.”
The latest Android version of the RAADR app is already available as early access on the Google Play Store for internal beta testers. As of January 24, the final version of the app is live for the public.
The Apple iOS version of the RAADR app is currently in submission to the App Store for final approval. The company believes this process will be complete by the end of January and that the app will be available to the public on IOS.
RDAR CEO, Jacob DiMartino, stated, “This is a huge day for the company and its investors, shareholders, supporters, and believers! We are laser focused on getting our app in the hands of as many parents using Android devices as possible! We are looking forward to getting the IOS approval very soon as well.”
With 73% of school students saying they feel they’ve been bullied in their lifetime and 44% saying they believe they’ve been bullied in the last 30 days, cyberbullying remains a problem for students, parents, and school officials.
RDAR finally offers a solution for combating the issue of cyberbullying. As pressure from parents, teachers, administrators, and the government continues to grow, cyberbullying is an issue that needs to be addressed.
