Our Readers Scored Big On Gopher Protocol (OTCMKTS:GOPH) Last Month But It's Not Too Late To Get In Early
If you'd have taken a position in GOPH when we first highlighted it, you'd be sitting on an 800% gain right now. Don't worry, though. There's still time to get into this technology runner ahead of the crowd.
Anyone that caught our last coverage of Gopher Protocol (OTCMKTS:GOPH) and picked up a position on the back of us urging them to put the company on their watch list has scored big since that date.
For those that missed it, it's available here.
As part of that coverage, we gave our readers three reasons to take a look at GOPH and we suggested that once they had, they'd be rushing to pick up an exposure to the incredible growth potential that we felt the company had.
At that time, Gopher Protocol went for $1.33 a share. Fast forward to January 11 and the stock trades for $2.72 – a 104% run in a matter of weeks.

And in fact, this was the second time we gave our readers a chance to get in ahead of the curve on this stock. Our initial highlight came back in October, here. At that time, OTCMKTS:GOPH was trading way down at $0.30. From that point to the just noted $2.72 highs, early entrants are looking at a more than 800% gain.
For those that are new to this story, it's probably tempting to be disappointed about missing out on these gains. If only you'd have caught our coverage towards the end of last year – you'd be sitting on an incredible gain by now, right?
Well, don't worry.
We said it last time and we'll say it again – our bull thesis on this one is long-term and the latest run is very much just the beginning of what we see as an overarching upside revaluation for GOPH moving into the remainder of 2018 and beyond.
We know, of course, our readers are sophisticated investors. In many ways, our record speaks for itself on this stock but that's not going to be enough on its own to make readers start their research on this one right away – we've got to back up our statements with some substance.
Luckily, with Gopher Protocol, that's very easy to do.
So, for the third time, here's why our team of analysts think this one's a winner and a look at what's happened since we last looked at the stock that reinforces our thesis.
First up, for anyone new to the company, let's kick things off with an introduction.
GOPH is a development-stage company which consider itself Native IoT creator, developing Internet of Things (IoT) and Artificial Intelligence enabled mobile technology. The Company has a portfolio of Intellectual Property that when commercialized will include smart microchips, mobile application software and supporting cloud software.
As we said last time, it's worth taking this company description with a pinch of salt – these sorts of technical language blurbs can confuse even the tech-minded investors out there and in turn can cloud the primary operational goals of the company they describe.
This, of course, can sometimes work in our favor, given that an inability to understand exactly what a company does can lead to some investors passing over a stock in favor of something a little more straightforward.
Anyway, let's get back to the point.
This company is a tech company that's developed a groundbreaking microchip technology that has a raft of different use cases, each of which has the potential to be a game changer as and when it hits shelves.
The technology is designed to be fitted to mobile devices and, in turn, to allow GOPH to create its own private communication network designed to improve the computing power, database management, internal memory, and security of all mobile devices equipped with the chip.
It's neat and it's revolutionary.
And the first application of this tech comes as part of what the company calls The Guardian Pet Tracker.
Which brings us to our first fundamental development since we last took a look at the stock.
So, here goes.
Development #1: Gopher Initiates Prototype Development of the GUARDIAN ORB Proprietary Pet Tracking Product
To add a bit of background to the picture before getting into this product, Gopher took its microchip technology and turned it into a tracking patch that it calls the Guardian Patch. The image below shows what this patch looks like:
The technology itself is relatively self explanatory. Stick the patch to something (anything) and it will emit a signal that can be tracked using a proprietary mobile device application, the latter of which can be installed and accessed on pretty much any mobile device – smartphone, tablet, smart watch, all that sort of thing.
There is a huge number of potential applications of this technology – tracking stolen cars, monitoring the travel progress of friends and relatives, keeping an eye on children, and many more.
GOPH has to start somewhere, however, and this is where the Guardian Orb product enters the fray.
It's a derivative of the Guardian Patch, modified to allow for the tracking of domestic pets.
Millions of pets are lost every year in the US. The vast majority are dogs and cats. Pet owners spend thousands of hours looking for lost pets and – in many cases – the search is fruitless.
With the Guardian Orb system, this problem (and all the wasted time associated with it) is completely negated.
GOPH has created what it calls the Base Station, which is essentially a radio receiver unit. The pet owner places the unit in their home and, at the same time, puts the Orb on the animal (as an attachment to their collar). They then download the application and everything links together. The application interface is a map type screen (think Google Maps) that shows the location of the animal that's got a tracker attached in real time.
The Base Station has a range of up to five miles, meaning so long as the animal is within five square miles of the owner's home (which is very likely), it can be found and recovered quickly and easily.
And it isn’t just limited to this five-mile radius.
The application is able to link up with all Base Stations, so the pet can be within range of someone else's unit and it will still show up on the owner's application.
This is a big deal because it means that the technology will become more useful over time as more and more pet owners adopt the tracking system.
So why is this important now?
Because, as per this announcement, the company just secured a joint venture partner to design and manufacture both the static and portable pet tracker systems.
Upon successful development and delivery of prototypes, Gopher’s joint venture partner will appoint the manufacturer as the exclusive manufacturer subject to entering an appropriate agreement.
As we outlined last time, GOPH recently acquired an entity that generated more than $32.2 million in sales during the 30 weeks to August 26, 2017. That's already an incredible number for a company valued (at current prices) at just shy of $100 million.
When the Guardian Orb hits shelves, however, we expect revenues to shift up into another gear again.
So that's the product development driver out of the way. Let's move onto the second fundamental advance that's hit press since we last highlighted this one as one to watch…
Development #2: Gopher Protocol, Inc. Files Patent Application in the European Patent Office
Intellectual property is incredibly important in the technology sector and this is especially true when you're talking about the cutting edge of the industry. It's not unusual for a company's IP portfolio to account for the lion's share of its valuation.
This is why companies like Apple Inc. (NASDAQ: AAPL) and Intel Corporation (NASDAQ: INTC) spend billions of dollars protecting what they've created.
Gopher Protocol recognizes this and is pushing to make sure that its groundbreaking proprietary technology is protected.
On December 15, the company reported that it filed a patent application in the European Union Patent Office.
As per the announcement, the patent is entitled “ELECTRONIC CIRCUITS FOR SECURE COMMUNICATIONS AND ASSOCIATED SYSTEMS AND METHODS” and covers Gopher’s proprietary microchip technology.
This follows a round of similar applications in the US, all of which are designed to make the company's products airtight as far as protection from competition is concerned. When you develop and commercialize a technology that's as revolutionary as GOPH's microchip tracking and networking technology, you're going to get companies trying to copy what you've created.
A solid IP portfolio provides a platform from which GOPH can fend off any competitors encroaching on its market and – in turn – can ensure that it's able to maximize and maintain its market share.
It's really important not to underestimate the significance of Gopher Protocol's efforts on the IP front. This is something that many small tech companies overlook in favor of allocating resources towards marketing and product development. In turn, it's something that said companies come to regret further down the line when, as soon as they start to build market share, the market is flooded with impersonation products.
In contrast, GOPH is making sure it's got a strong IP foundation from which it can push into its target market before its competitors have a chance to act.
Which brings us to the third and final major fundamental development of the last few weeks…
Development #3: Financial and Operational Launch Platform
OK, so we're cheating a little bit on this one and bunching a couple of key points together – the thing is, we could go on all day about why this one could be a great pick right now but we don't want to keep you too long.
We've already seen how quickly the stock can run and the longer we keep you, the longer you're being held back from kicking off your own research on the company ahead of potentially taking a position.
That said, stick with us just a little longer as the following are a couple of really important points.
First, on January 4, 2018, GOPH announces that it had taken further steps to eliminate most of its convertible debt. All the information is available in this 8K, so for anyone looking to dig into the details, it's well worth checking out the filing using that link.
As a brief overview, however, the de-levering is part of the company's strategy to reduce its dependence on convertible debt financing and create a balance sheet that gives investors clarity regarding the number of shares outstanding and potential dilution caused by historical convertible debt financing.
This is incredibly important.
The vast majority of the risk associated with an early stage exposure to a growth company like this is the potential for dilution, rooted in the company's necessity to raise capital to fund its operations.
By de-levering its balance sheet to eliminate convertible debt, this dilution potential is mitigated, as is the impact of previous dilutive activity. In turn, a large portion of the risk is mitigated, making the upside all the more attractive to a potential investor at current levels.
But that's not all.
The second part of this financial repositioning came on January 2, when the company announced a closing of the sale of common stock and a common stock purchase warrants, which generated $1 million in proceeds.
Taken directly from the announcement:
This financing included an equity raise generating gross proceeds of $1million and the conversion of previously issues convertible notes into common stock as well as commitment, under certain terms, for of an additional financing of $500,000 potentially bringing the total raise to $1.5 million. The additional capital was in exchange for restricted common shares and a leak-out agreement. This transaction represents $0.75 for restricted share.
In a nutshell, then, GOPH just raised the cash it needs to set itself up in an incredibly strong position moving into 2018 – one that involves a much more attractive liability positioning and a solid cash balance that's now available to fund its technology platform.
There's another takeaway from this financing worth noting, as well:
A private accreditor investor has made the transition from being a lender to a long-term equity investor.
Nothing says vote of confidence like an accredited investor putting their money where their mouth is and as a retail investor considering a position, this is a major BUY signal.
So there you have it.
For any of our readers that are already in this one, the information above could be used serve to reinforce a long-term hold argument.
For anyone that missed our previous coverage, however, here's yet another chance to put a stock on your radar that looks like it's got incredible growth potential.
And at current prices, shares are available for a circa 30% discount to mid-week highs.
So while we strongly urge you to do your own research before taking the plunge, probably best you don't take too long to do it.

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, Gopher Protocol Inc. Small Cap Exclusive has been hired by a third party, Sunrise Media, LLC ., for a period beginning on October 18th 2017 to publicly disseminate information about (GOPH) via website and email. We have been compensated $720,000. We will update any changes to our compensation. We own zero shares of (GOPH).
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. Gopher Protocol 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. The Information is provided as is without limitation.
We are not, and do not act in the capacity of any of the following; as such, you should not construe our activities as involving any of the following: an independent adviser or consultant; a fortune teller; an investment adviser or an entity engaging in activities that would be deemed to be providing investment advice that requires registration either at the federal and / or state level; a broker-dealer or an individual acting in the capacity of a registered representative or broker; a stock picker; a securities trading expert; a securities researcher or analyst; a financial planner or one who engages in financial planning; a provider of stock recommendations; a provider of advice about buy, sell or hold recommendations as to specific securities; or an agent offering or securities for sale or soliciting their purchase.
There are numerous risks associated with each Profiled Issuer and investors should undertake a full review of each Profiled Issuer with the assistance of their financial, legal, and tax advisers prior to purchasing the securities of any Profiled Issuer.
We are not objective or independent and have multiple conflicts of interest. The Profiled Issuers and parties hiring us have conflicts of interest. Third parties that have hired us and own shares will sell these shares while we tell investors to purchase, and this selling of the Profiled Issuer’s securities will likely cause investors to suffer losses.
Our publication of the Information involves actual and material conflicts of interest including but not limited to the fact that we receive monetary compensation in exchange for publishing the (favorable) Information about the Profiled Issuers; and we do not publish any negative information, whatsoever, about the Profiled Issuers; in addition to the fact that while we do not own the Profiled Issuer’s securities, the third parties that hired us do, and intend to sell all of these securities during the Campaign while we publish favorable information that instructs investors to purchase, and this selling of the Profiled Issuer’s securities will likely cause investors to suffer losses.
We are not responsible or liable for any person’s use of the Information or any success or failure that is directly or indirectly related to such person’s use of the Information because we have specifically stated that the information is not reliable and should not be relied upon for any purpose. We are not responsible for omissions and / or errors in the Information and we are not responsible for actions taken by any person who relies upon the Information.
We urge Investors to conduct their own in-depth investigation of the Profiled Issuers with the assistance of their legal, tax and / or investment adviser(s). An investor’s review of the Information should include but not be limited to the Profiled Issuer’s financial condition, operations, management, products and / or services, trends in the industry and risks that may be material to the profiled Issuer’s business and other information he and his advisers deem material to an investment decision. An investor’s review should include, but not be limited to a review of available public sources and information received directly from the Profiled Issuers or from websites such as Google, Yahoo, Bing, OTC Markets, NASDAQ, NYSE, www.sec.gov or other available public sources.
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.
