  • NASDAQ Up Listing And Institutional Buying Could Double Finjan's Shareprice

    Finjan is extremely undervalued right now, and there's an imminent catalyst that could instantly double the share price; the NASDAQ up listing. As many of my readers remember, Organovo (NYSEMKT:ONVO) went from $3.90 to $13.65 following the company's up listing.

    Best of all, the delay in Finjan's up listing has driven Finjan shares below $6 so I have been an aggressive buyer over the last few days. Once investors realize an up listing is probable, we could see share price appreciation before the up listing.

    But what investors don't realize is that the up listing is not nearly as important as what will happen after the up listing. Once Finjan has a NASDAQ listing, major institutions will be able to accumulate shares. With Finjan's low float, any level of institutional buying could push the shareprice significantly higher.

    The other factor that investors seem to have forgotten is that Finjan could announce a major settlement at any time, given the 5 litigations that are currently underway. Depending upon the magnitude of the settlements, it would not be surprising to see Finjan trading in the $15-$20 range.

    In my opinion Finjan is extremely undervalued at this price level, and with the probability of a NASDAQ up listing, institutional buying, and settlement announcements before the end of this year, the upside potential is large, and downside risk is limited.
