Recent News & Updates
Origin Agritech Ltd. Is Poised For Explosive Growth - Could Be The Right Time To Plant A SEED
The company is poised to capitalize on an expected shift in China to allow government-approved GMO seeds, being one of only three Chinese companies in a 15 billion Yuan market. The stock price recently cratered on the successive filings of a $25M shelf, and then an Equity Purchase Agreement with Oasis Capital, providing a good entry point. Key near-term catalyst: Approval for sale of its GMO corn by Chinese regulators is expected in the near term – with billion yuan revenue potential to shortly follow. This little Chinese seed company could be worth a small speculative investment.
