Put NDRA on the Top of your watchlist right now ! ! !
Long-term success on Wall Street is all about getting ahead of the story everyone else will be chasing months or even weeks down the road. That’s why Endra Life Sciences Inc. (NASDAQ-NDRA) has my attention now.
Look at NDRA today and it’s more potential than powerhouse. The company doesn’t even make room for revenue on its quarterly pre-revenue reports yet. It hasn’t sold anything. The profitability that institutional investors demand is probably years away.
On paper, all it has to back up its $15 million market cap is $3 million in cash, miscellaneous other assets and a whole lot of talent and ideas. Big ideas. Many patents were collected over the last five years, 5 others overseas and dozens of others around the world.
Those ideas and the talent to turn them into commercial reality are the important thing about NDRA right now. All in all, they’re why the analysts who know this little company best say it will be worth $5.00 to $6.00 under the right conditions.
The firm with the most bearish take on NDRA just raised its target to $2.75 and left the door open to additional upgrades beyond. That’s pretty big talk for a stock that was trading at $0.65 at the time . . . and even now, after a blockbuster 65% run, remains within sight of a lowly $1.
THE BILLION-DOLLAR OPPORTUNITY
What have the analysts figured out that the market can’t see? Putting the dots together starts with four simple letters: N A S H.
It stands for Non-Alcoholic Steato Hepatitis. It means fat builds up in the liver (steatosis) and starts causing inflammation. In effect, it’s a form of self-inflicted hepatitis. In extreme cases, scarring and cirrhosis follow. It resembles alcoholic liver disease, only without the liquor.
And it’s a silent health epidemic that we know affects 20 million Americans and probably up to 80 million more people carry the fatty markers without knowing. Do the math and it kills more people than coronavirus . . . but because it’s progressive, the longer you have it, the worse your odds get.
NASH is now the top reason people need liver transplants today. Bigger than hepatitis. It can even cause cancer. While there’s no cure right now, Big Pharma has already spent BILLIONS ($1 billion from Gilead alone, and even then, that drug failed) trying to ring that bell. There are literally dozens of hopeful drugs in the clinic now. Most will fizzle out on the road but those that finally make it all the way to FDA approval will share a $35 billion sales jackpot.
Is it any wonder Wall Street goes nuts on the faintest whiff of progress toward a NASH cure? But if you’re curious about where tiny little NDRA fits into the story and how it hopes to compete with just about every ambitious drug company around, stop wondering.
NDRA isn’t racing the giants to a cure. That’s a fool’s game. Instead, management did a little reading between the lines and realized that they can help by coming up with better ways to detect NASH in its early stages.
Detection is essential. And it’s difficult. “Early detection is one of the biggest challenges” because by the time you notice the symptoms, you’re really sick.
Right now there are really only two ways to test for NASH: 1) a liver biopsy and 2) a full MRI to peek inside the body. The biopsy is invasive and uncomfortable. The MRI is expensive and relies on increasingly irreplaceable helium to run the magnets.
Between Option A and Option B, there’s no easy way to screen for who has NASH and who doesn’t. When you’re looking at a silent and lethal epidemic, it’s a good idea to run as many tests as you can . . . tens of millions just to identify all the people who have the condition now.
So NDRA came up with Option C. and differentiate fat from lean tissues.
THE NDRA ALTERNATIVE
Because fat is the problem, recognizing it on the scanner is all it takes. You’ve got NASH or you don’t. Follow-up tests can gauge progress or remission once those new drugs hit the market, telling doctors when to prescribe a pill or how to evaluate its effects.
NDRA’s system is proprietary. Only their machines know how to decode the waves and find the fat. The procedure doesn’t require gigantic magnets or rare helium. The machine costs 1/50 of an MRI suite.
And hospitals don’t have to buy an all-new imaging suite to run the test. This system TAEUS sits next to the existing ultrasound and plugs right in.
Say there are 20,000 radiology labs in the developed world that do ultrasound screens now. NDRA can ultimately gross $1 billion selling them each a $50,000 TAEUS unit. That’s not a bad windfall at all for a company that’s currently valued at $15 million, right? For little NDRA to trade at even 1X that “base addressable market” opportunity, it would need to unlock truly massive upside . . . which would in turn give shareholders who got in early plenty to cheer.
From there, the accounting really adds up. The system can also map temperature in the body to help guide laser- and heat-based surgical procedures. It can track blood flow down to the microscopic level. Ultimately TAEUS has the potential to spot blockages to diagnose and assist treatment of a wide range of conditions. And throughout, NDRA has made sure to keep building in ways to sell disposable equipment and charge licensing fees to people who have already built the machine.
Remember, tens of millions of people in America alone (not even counting the rest of the world) probably have NASH and need to get a definitive diagnosis. Biopsies cost $1,500 apiece. An MRI scan is running close to double that . . . and that’s when the machines are actually working and slots are available! Even if the disposables only cost a few dollars per procedure, we’re looking at real money here.
All in all, management suspects there’s $18 billion to chase. At that point, the multiplier gets vast. Again, NASH is a big problem and big money: here’s a report suggesting that just selling the genetic markers that say you MIGHT get the disease is going to be worth $2 billion a year very soon. People with the markers will still need physical confirmation. That’s where NDRA comes in.
SOLVING THE BILLION-DOLLAR PUZZLE
Of course it’s a long way from a $15 million stock with big dreams to the kind of company that can realistically conquer billion-dollar markets. NDRA today reflects reality on the ground today. However, management has done a lot of work paving the road from here to there.
To start, nothing ever happens in healthcare without regulatory approval. NDRA has already gotten clearance in Europe and is now looking to file its 510(k) medical device submission this summer, so the clock is ticking there. If you aren’t familiar with the 510(k) process, it’s a lot faster than what it takes to get a drug approved.
You really just need to prove safety and effectiveness. As long as your system doesn’t hurt people and actually provides the medical benefit you claim it does, the FDA tends to give you the green light to start selling. Historically it takes less than six months, so as long as NDRA makes its 2Q timeline, we can hope to hear back by the end of the year.
But maybe NDRA wants to wait and make sure the application is as strong as possible. A few months ago their research revealed a past FDA decision that might raise the odds of approval as long as they “do it that way.” Getting the data points in line has taken a little more time.
Meanwhile, the Europeans have already signed off on the device. That’s 5,500 hospitals or a $275 million revenue opportunity ($50,000 per TAEUS) that just opened up. Even if nothing happens on other regulatory fronts for months to come, NDRA is now free to start making money. And at this point, any slice of the initial $275 million market will feel mighty good.
Once you get the green light, you still need to convince the doctors they need to lobby hospitals to buy the equipment. NDRA has teamed up with the liver experts at the Medical College of Wisconsin while partnerships with the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center and Rocky Vista University do their share to spread the word. The more data that gets out into the journals, the easier the job gets.
A lot of doctors are probably eager for an efficient NASH testing system, so resistance is probably going to be mild at worst. When potential customers actively want to buy what you’re selling, all you have to do is give them a way to hand you the money.
And that’s the last big piece of the puzzle snapping into place. NDRA isn’t building a vast sales force to approach thousands of hospitals. That takes time and a whole lot of money. Instead, they’ve teamed up with GE Healthcare . . . which sells and supports the ultrasound machines that TAEUS plugs into.
If the ultrasound is the razor and TAEUS is the fancy new blade, NDRA has made a very powerful friend. GE is happy because the added functionality makes the ultrasound more relevant. NDRA gets to virtually “ride along” on the sales conversations. That’s what “facilitating introductions” means in that last link. Do you have an ultrasound machine? Did you buy it from GE? Have you heard that NDRA can leverage your existing machine to detect NASH?
THE BOTTOM LINE
Add it all up, NDRA has a solid shot at getting a lot of those hospitals to upgrade their existing ultrasound machines. Once they all do it, that’s billion-dollar potential, a real company maker.
Look at a company like Exact Sciences, which makes mail-in colon cancer tests. It took the last two years to book $1.3 billion in sales. This year it might do $1.2 billion as well. That once-obscure company is now worth close to $13 billion.
According to that math, NDRA only needs to sell a couple dozen TAEUS systems a year to justify its current market cap. The European hospitals can buy now. Even if NDRA hits 1% penetration of that market, we’re looking at a lot more than “a couple dozen” sales.
Remember, GE is helping. The data is flowing. Awareness around NASH isn’t fading. Doctors are waking up to the depth of the problem they’re facing as liver cancer and transplant numbers hit the red zone.
Day by day, those hospitals will get more receptive. And then “a couple dozen” will look small, at which point NDRA translates its potential into something a lot more substantial . . . and shareholders who saw the future in an obscure $15 million stock will be able to brag that they were early and right.

Small Cap Exclusive is owned and operated by JBN PARTNERS LLC, which is a US based corporation. We are paid advertisers, also known as stock touts or stock promoters, who disseminate favorable information (this “Article”) about publicly traded companies (the “Profiled Issuers”).
We publish the Information on our website, smallcapexclusive.com and in newsletters, text message alerts, audio services, live interviews, featured “research” reports, on message boards and in email communications for specific time periods that are agreed upon between us and the Profiled Issuer and / or third party paying us. Our publication of the Information is known as a “Campaign”. This information may be sent to potential investors at different times that are minutes, hours, days or even weeks apart. Typically, the trading volume and price of a Profiled Issuer’s securities increases after the information is provided to the first group of investors. Therefore, the later an investor receives the Information, the more likely it is that he will suffer trading losses if they purchase the securities of a Profiled Issuer late in a Campaign. We are paid to advertise the Profiled Issuers, Endra Life Sciences Inc. Small Cap Exclusive has been hired by 1047631 BC LTD for a period beginning on June 18, 2020 to publicly disseminate information about (NDRA) via website and email. We have been compensated $61,000. We will update any changes to our compensation.
Third Parties paying us to market the Profiled Issuer we believe intend to sell their shares they hold while we tell investors to purchase during the Campaign. Endra Life Sciences Inc. is a penny stock that was illiquid (little to no trading volume) prior to our Campaign, and therefore these securities are subject to wide fluctuations in trading price and volume. During the Campaign the trading volume and price of the securities of each Profile Issuer will likely increase significantly because of the media exposure. When the Campaign ends, the volume and price of the Profiled Issuer will likely decrease dramatically. As a result, investors who purchase during the Campaign and hold shares of the Profiled Issuer when the Campaign ends will probably lose most, if not all, of their investment.
The Information we publish in the Campaign is only a snapshot that provides only positive information about the Profiled Issuers. The Information consists of only positive content. We do not and will not publish any negative information about the Profiled Issuers; accordingly, investors should consider the Information to be one-sided and not balanced, complete, accurate, truthful and / or reliable. We do not verify or confirm any portion of the Information. We do not conduct any due diligence, nor do we research any aspect of the Information including the completeness, accuracy, truthfulness and / or reliability of the Information. We do not review the Profiled Issuers’ financial condition, operations, business model, management or risks involved in the Profiled Issuer’s business or an investment in a Profiled Issuer’s securities.
All information in our Campaign is publicly available information from 3rd party sources and / or the Profiled Issuers and/or the 3rd parties that hire us. We may also obtain the Information from publicly available sources such as the OTC Markets, Google, NASDAQ, NYSE, Yahoo, Bing, the Securities and Exchange Commission’s Edgar database or other available public sources.
We select the stocks we profile and / or pick as we are compensated to advertise them. If an investor relies solely on the Information in making an investment decision it is highly probable that the investor will lose most, if not all, of his or her investment. Investors should not rely on the Information to make an investment decision.
The source of our compensation varies depending upon the particular circumstances of the Campaign. In certain cases, we are compensated by the Profiled Issuers, third party shareholders, and / or other parties related to the Profiled Issuers such as officers and/or directors who will derive a financial or other benefit from an increase in the trading price and/or volume of a Profiled Issuer’s securities.
We make no warranty and / or representation about the Information, including its completeness, accuracy, truthfulness or reliability and we disclaim, expressly and implicitly, all warranties of any kind, including whether the Information is complete, accurate, truthful, or reliable and as such, your use of the Information is at your own risk.

We are providing you with this disclaimer because we are publishing advertisements about penny stocks. Because we are paid to disseminate the Information to the public about securities, we are required by the securities laws including Section 10(b) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the “Exchange Act”) and Rule 10b-5 thereunder, and Section 17(b) of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), to specifically disclose my compensation as well as other important information, This information includes that we may hold, as well as purchase and sell, the securities of a Profiled Issuer before, during and after we publish favorable Information about the Profiled Issuer. We may urge investors to purchase the securities of a Profiled Issuer while we sell my own shares. The anti-fraud provisions of federal and state securities laws require us to inform you that we may engage in buying and selling of Profiled Issuer’s securities before, during and after the Campaigns.
Any investment in the Profiled Issuers involves a high degree of risk and uncertainty. The securities may be subject to extreme volume and price volatility, especially during the Campaigns. Favorable past performance of a Profiled Issuer does not guarantee future results. If you purchase the securities of the Profiled Issuers, you should be prepared to lose your entire investment. Some of the risks involved in purchasing securities of the Profiled Issuers include, but are not limited to the risks stated below.
We do not endorse, independently verify or assert the truthfulness, completeness, accuracy or reliability of the Information. We conduct no due diligence or investigation whatsoever of the Information or the Profiled Issuers and we do not receive any verification from the Profiled Issuer regarding the Information we disseminate.
If we publish any percentage gain of a Profiled Issuer from the previous day close in the Information, it is not and should not be construed as an indication that the future stock price or future operational results will reflect gains or otherwise prove to be advantageous to your investment.
The Information may contain statements asserting that a Profiled Issuer’s stock price has increased over a certain period of time which may reflect an arbitrary period of time, and is not predictive or of any analytical quality; as such, you should not rely upon the (favorable) Information in your analysis of the present or future potential of a Profiled Issuer or its securities.
The Information should not be interpreted in any way, shape, form or manner whatsoever as an indication of the Profiled Issuer’s future stock price or future financial performance.
You may encounter difficulties determining what, if any, portions of the Information are material or non-material, making it all the more imperative that you conduct your own independent investigation of the Profiled Issuer and its securities with the assistance of your legal, tax and financial advisor.
When 3rd parties that hire us acquire, purchase and / or sell the securities of the Profiled Issuers, it may (a) cause significant volatility in the Profiled Issuer’s securities; (b) cause temporary but unrealistic increases in volume and price of the Profiled Issuer’s securities; (c) if selling, cause the Profiled Issuer’s stock price to decline dramatically; and (d) permit themselves to make substantial profits while investors who purchase during the Campaign experience significant losses.
The securities of the Profiled Issuers are high risk, unstable, unpredictable and illiquid which may make it difficult for investors to sell their securities of the Profiled Issuers.
We may hire third party service providers and stock promoters to electronically disseminate live news regarding the Profiled Issuers, yet we have no control over the content of and do not verify the information that the Profiled Issuers and/or third party service providers publish. These third party service providers are likely compensated for providing positive information about the Issuer and may fail to disclose their compensation to you.
If a Profiled Issuer is a SEC reporting company, it could be delinquent (not current) in its periodic reporting obligations (i.e., in its quarterly and annual reports), or if it is an OTC Markets Pink Sheet quoted company, it may be delinquent in its Pink Sheet reporting obligations, which may result in OTC Markets posting a negative legend pertaining to the Profiled Issuer at www.otcmarkets.com, as follows: (i) “Limited Information” for companies with financial reporting problems, economic distress, or that are unwilling to file required reports with the Pink Sheets; (ii) “No Information,” which characterizes companies that are unable or unwilling to provide any disclosure to the public markets, to the SEC or the Pink Sheets; and (iii) “Caveat Emptor,” signifying buyers should be aware that there is a public interest concern associated with a company’s illegal spam campaign, questionable stock promotion, known investigation of a company’s fraudulent activity or its insiders, regulatory suspensions or disruptive corporate actions.
If the Information states that a Profiled Issuer’s securities are consistent with the future economic trends or even if your independent research indicates that, you should be aware that economic trends have their own limitations, including: (a) that economic trends or predictions may be speculative; (b) consumers, producers, investors, borrowers, lenders and/or government may react in unforeseen ways and be affected by behavioral biases that we are unable to predict; (c) human and social factors may outweigh future economic trends that we state may or will occur; (d) clear cut economic predictions have their limitations in that they do not account for the fundamental uncertainty in economic life, as well as ordinary life; (e) economic trends may be disrupted by sudden jumps, disruptions or other factors that are not accounted for in economic trends analysis; in other words, past or present data predicting future economic trends may become irrelevant in light of new circumstances and situations in which uncertainty becomes reality rather than predicted economic outcome; or (f) if the trend predicted involves a single result, it ignores other scenarios that may be crucial to make a decision in the event of unknown contingencies.
The Information is presented only as a brief snapshot of the Profiled Issuer and should only be used, at most, and if at all, as a starting point for you to conduct a thorough investigation of the Profiled Issuer and its securities. You should consult your financial, legal or other adviser(s) and avail yourself of the filings and information that may be accessed at www.sec.gov, www.otcmarkets.com or other electronic media, including: (a) reviewing SEC periodic reports (Forms 10-Q and 10-K), reports of material events (Form 8-K), insider reports (Forms 3, 4, 5 and Schedule 13D); (b) reviewing Information and Disclosure Statements and unaudited financial reports filed with the OTCMarkets.com; (c) obtaining and reviewing publicly available information contained in commonly known search engines such as Google; and (d) consulting investment guides at www.sec.gov and www.finra.org. You should always be cognizant that the Profiled Issuers may not be current in their reporting obligations with the SEC and the OTC Markets and/or have negative legends and designations at otcmarkets.com.
