Seeking Alpha Analyst Since 2020

  • On Friday, 9/18/2020, the BULLS returned to GNUS and crushed all walls of resistance in a matter of minutes, propelling the stock to $1.31 at one point.
  • Why is this important? The stock has been held down for quite some time and to see a powerful breakout is telling and could mean that breaking news is imminent.
  • GNUS has recently completed all updated versions of their Kartoon Channel! Apps and feedback has been stellar, which shows the company is capable of improving in a short time frame.
  • One Catalyst that may have caused the spike is an Accretive Acquisition as the CEO put it. There may be insider buying based upon the potential Accretive Acquisition.
  • Another Catalyst is the Social Media Campaign to gain as many followers as possible to download the Kartoon Channel! App. This includes using Stan Lee's millions of followers on Instagram.

Genius Brands (GNUS) is on the rise again after being pummeled by shorts and unhappy investors since the June 2020 explosion to $11.70. It has been a slow and painful bleed for the majority of investors who stuck with the company.

But is the rise again finally here?

Many investors and knowledgeable GNUS bag-holders would agree. 

Many factors go into why GNUS is finally worth putting dollars into the stock:

1. Debt free and over $50,000,000+ in cash with the potential to buy a company in an accretive way.

2. Kartoon Channel! App has been upgraded into a worthwhile version across iOS, Android, and other platforms.

3. AVOD's are running with some videos playing 4 to 5 advertisements per video. SVOD's or Subscription based video on demand (Similar to Netflix) are now available.

4. Stan Lee's Instagram with millions of followers are now lured into downloading the Kartoon Channel! app to watch Stan Lee's Mighty 7. The more downloads, the more video watches, and the more advertisement money. Other social media "influencers"are beginning to promote GNUS.

5. Of those advertisements, popular brand names are buying into GNUS and displaying their products on the GNUS Kartoon Channel! Platform, which includes Legos, Disney+, new movies, etc.

6. Rainbow Rangers are beginning to become a kid favorite and as small stocks of toys hit Walmart, bigger production of these same toys are beginning to ramp up to prepare for the Christmas season. Expect a "Normandy Invasion" of promotions and advertisements for Rainbow Rangers as it looks to become as popular as "Strawberry Shortcake" and "Power Rangers." Halloween Episode to launch on October 11 on Nick Jr. at 11:00 A.M.

7. Arnold Schwarzenegger will start to promote GNUS most likely in Quarter 4 (a few weeks away) to promote Stan Lee's SuperHero KinderGarten. Arnold is active on Twitter and has 4.6 Million Followers. Pair this with the announcement of an action-based comedy of Stan Lee's SuperHero KinderGarten with John Landis and the hype and popularity is going to prove this stock is a potential gold-mine. 

8. The cast that is inside Genius Brands is an A+ team that has done nothing but win. Michael Uslan of Batman, Margaret Loesch of Power-Rangers and X-Men, Steven Banks of SpongeBob SquarePants, Shane Morris of Disney's Frozen, Rob Minkoff of Disney's The Lion King, Multiple Emmy Award Winning director Michael Maliani, Andy Heyward as CEO and executive producer and a background of success such as creating Inspector Gadget. This is just a few of the star-studded diamond core at Genius Brands.

9. Genius Brands now owns all of Stan Lee's post Marvel intellectual property. Contrary to my bear friends opinion about Disney and Marvel not wanting all of Stan Lee's IP (See article of Stan Lee's Daughter refuses to sell Stan Lee's IP to Disney and Marvel due to the treatment of her father).  Genius Brands will now release multiple new SuperHero's yearly and they have the A+ talent to sift through all of the incredible IP that Stan Lee created during his lifetime. Could this lead to a potential partnership between Disney and GNUS? Just dive into the A+ Exec team and you will find many former Disney Employees.

10. Revenues are finally here with AVOD or Advertisement Video on Demand and SVOD's. This is what the Market Makers were waiting on and now they see it. In my opinion, the time may be right to enter GNUS at a low price to maximize on future profits as the future of this company is in its infancy stages. The "Normandy Invasion" is here.
