Citron research, for what it's worth, is supposed to be preparing an article on JMIA and China's last mile in Africa, saying it is the "news we've been waiting for".
@oakraid it’s worrying nothing if it’s being pumped by citron

UPS is a pretty trusted company, if they have faith and are supporting JMIA success.... it is worth looking at.

On my radar
Buy and sell weekly covered calls with huge premiums
Worth a look.
