Clean Coal Technologies, Inc. (CCTC)
InvestorsHub, Stockhouse, Insider Financial, StockNewsUnion, Stock Invest, InvestorPoint, Small Cap Exclusive, Marketbeat, Investors Hangout, and StocksTrade reported on Clean Coal Technologies, Inc. (CCTC), and today we are highlighting the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.
Clean Coal Technologies, Inc. is an emerging growth coal technology enterprise. The Company holds patented process technology and other intellectual property (IP) that converts raw coal into a cleaner burning fuel. Its trademarked end products, "Pristine™" coals, are considerably more efficient, less polluting, more cost-effective, and provide more heat than untreated coal. OTCQB-listed, Clean Coal Technologies has its headquarters in New York, New York.
The Company’s clean coal technology may decrease approximately 90 percent of chemical pollutants from coal. This includes Sulfur and Mercury. As a result, this resolves emissions issues affecting coal-fired power plants.
Its technology deals with extraction of the volatiles in liquid form from lower ranking coals. Upon the moisture being removed from the targeted coal, the liquid volatiles are used by way of an “absorption” process to fill the pores of the coal that has been dehydrated. More liquid volatiles are used via an adsorption process to coat the coal.
The result is a significant improvement in the coal ranking through increased caloric content (BTU’s), and a stable low moisture feedstock for power generation. Removing moisture lessens shipping costs by weight and the delivery of less volume of higher ranking coals to meet the requirements of the end user. Moreover, increasing the coal ranking improves the market price and salability of coal.
Clean Coal Technologies’ Pristine M technology is a patented, low-cost coal dehydration technology. The Pristine M process starts with the extraction of volatile material in liquid form from lower ranking coals.
The Company has its Pristine-SA technology. This is a development stage technology designed to eliminate 100 percent of the volatile material in feed coal. In addition, Clean Coal Technologies has its legacy technology, Pristine™. The design of it is to remove moisture and volatile matter (VM), as per client-specified requirements.
In October of 2017, Clean Coal Technologies announced the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the School of Energy Resources, University of Wyoming. The emphasis of the MOU is to further develop the performance and commercial potential of the Company’s pioneering coal-beneficiation technology. Clean Coal Technologies’ products provide solutions for coal users involved in power generation, steel, and coal-to-gas or coal-to-liquids projects.
Clean Coal Technologies, Inc. (CCTC), closed Thursday's trading session at $0.082, up 2.37%, on 133,765 volume with 9 trades. The average volume for the last 60 days is 136,889 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.073/$0.15.

Through its wholly owned subsidiary, Foresight Automotive Ltd., Foresight is engaged in the design, development and commercialization of stereo/quad-camera vision systems and V2X cellular-based solutions for the automotive industry based on 3D video analysis, advanced algorithms for image processing and sensor fusion. The company’s powerful and patented stereoscopic technology is derived from field-proven technology that has been deployed throughout the world for almost two decades.
Foresight’s innovative autonomous driving solutions are based on mature, proprietary stereoscopic image technology that uses two synchronized cameras to mimic human depth perception and produce a three-dimensional image. This 3D image can anticipate possible collisions with other vehicles, cyclists, pedestrians and other obstacles. The technology provides highly accurate real-time alerts about the vehicle’s surroundings while in motion. The systems are designed to improve driving safety by enabling highly accurate and reliable threat detection while ensuring the lowest rates of false alerts.
The company’s patents provide IP protection for its robust and proven proprietary stereoscopic technology, which was developed using the security technology of Foresight’s major shareholder, Magna B.S.P.
Foresight has developed three main products:
- QuadSight™. This breakthrough detection system sets the bar for autonomous vehicle vision. It features nearly 100 percent obstacle detection with almost zero false alerts and operates optimally under all weather and lighting conditions, including darkness, rain, fog, haze and glare. QuadSight™ is the first quad-camera multi-spectral vision solution of its kind, driven by advanced and proven image processing algorithms. The system consists of two sets of stereoscopic infra-red and visible-light cameras that enable highly accurate and reliable obstacle detection for seamless 24/7 vision.
- Eyes-On™. This solution uses advanced algorithms for accurate depth analysis and obstacle detection to provide a unique stereo vision Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS). It can detect all potential obstacles regardless of shape, form or material, including other vehicles, cyclists, pedestrians and animals. It has an accuracy and reliability of almost 100 percent and near zero false alerts.
- Eye-Net™. This is a cellular-based accident prevention solution that is designed to provide real-time pre-collision alerts to vehicles and pedestrians. This proprietary system is deployed on smartphones and cloud-based servers operating on existing cellular networks, and it eliminates the need for additional designated hardware. Eye-Net™ is designed to provide a complementary layer of protection to advanced driver assistance systems and extends this protection to road users who are not in direct line of sight. It is optimally designed for both urban environments and high-speed scenarios to provide protection for the most vulnerable road users. On March 28, 2018, Foresight announced that it had completed a successful feasibility study of its Eye-Net™ accident prevention solution involving 120 users of Android and iOS cell phones located across Israel.
In 2017, Foresight sought more opportunities within the international market. The Company signed pilot agreements with three leading car manufacturers in China and completed pilot projects meeting all pre-defined requirements and criteria. In addition, FRSX completed a pilot project with Uniti Sweden.
Studies by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety continue to emphasize the dramatic reduction in accidents and injury-related crashes reported when vehicles are equipped with collision avoidance systems. A recent study by the Institute states that the rate of single-vehicle, sideswipe and head-on crashes was 11 percent lower in vehicles with the warning systems. More importantly, the study shows collision avoidance technology cut the rates of injury crashes of the same type by 21 percent.
Foresight Autonomous Holdings, Inc. also holds a 32 percent interest in RailVision, a company that develops advanced systems for railway safety and maintenance. RailVision has successfully completed 13 tests in Israel, Germany, Italy and Switzerland in addition to a real-time system test with a European railway operator.

Zenergy Brands, Inc. (ZNGY)
Zenergy Brands, Inc. (OTCQB:ZNGY), the nation’s leading next-generation utility, announces it has engaged the corporate communications expertise of NetworkNewsWire ("NNW").
Zenergy Brands, Inc. (ZNGY) is the nation’s leading next-generation energy and technology company operating in the emerging smart energy, conservation, and utility industries. Headquartered in Texas, Zenergy provides an entire suite of conservation-based products and services that enable clients to achieve sustainability goals, reduce carbon emissions and improve their bottom line. The company’s cutting-edge Zero Cost Program™ reduces utility expenses by 20 percent to 60 percent by offering energy conservation, smart controls, and efficiency-based products and services to residential, commercial, industrial and municipal end-use customers.
The Zero Cost Program™ is a financing mechanism that allows customers to reduce water, natural gas and electricity expenses by implementing proven conservation technologies at no out-of-pocket cost. The Zero Cost Program™ enriches businesses by immediately reducing energy consumption through the use of smart controls, building automation, LED lighting solutions, refrigeration optimization, efficient water systems, EC motor controls, demand-side management and load factor correction.
A unique Managed Energy Services Agreement (“MESA”) allows a portion of these utility savings to be retained by Zenergy’s partner financing the upgraded, retrofit equipment and installation costs until a specified repayment period ends. After that, clients reap all the financial rewards of the technologies implemented, which Zenergy estimates should range between 25 percent and 45 percent of total utility costs.
Residential customers seeking cost-effective energy savings can also choose from a suite of “Smart Home” products including home automation, security monitoring, and energy conservation services that can be controlled 24/7 from the comfort and convenience of their smartphones or internet-connected smart devices. Zenergy’s residential program offers partnership opportunities for homebuilders and residential, multi-family real estate developers to provide smart home technologies to high-end customers.
Zenergy Brands’ acquisition of Enertrade Electric LLC, a fully operating, licensed Texas-based Retail Electric Provider (REP), further increases the company’s value proposition. Zenergy CEO Alex Rodriguez said this new subsidiary adds an essential complementary service to the company’s suite of smart energy products and services.
“Since our founding, our vision has been to converge smart controls (home and building automation) with energy conservation and retail energy to deliver the comprehensive smart energy service to customers,” Rodriguez said.
On a global scale, residential and commercial buildings account for nearly 45 percent of the world’s total energy consumption. Improving the energy efficiency of these homes and buildings is often a more affordable way to reduce harmful gas emissions while minimizing the need for new energy production. According to Navigant Research, global revenue for energy-efficient commercial building retrofits alone is expected to grow from $71.4 billion in 2016 to $100.8 billion in 2025. At the same time, the energy-efficient devices market is expected to reach a market size of $908 billion by 2022. Increasing demands for reduction in energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions along with concerns over climate change are contributing factors driving the market’s overall growth.

Victory Square Technologies Inc. (CSE: VST) (OTC: VSQTF) (FRANKFURT: 6F6) (WKN: A2AKL8) recognizes the potential of disruptive technologies and is unlocking the power of blockchain to bring life and new opportunity through VR. To view the full article, visit: http://nnw.fm/6QpKr.
Victory Square Technologies Inc. (VSQTF) is a venture builder that creates, funds and empowers entrepreneurs working in the fields of blockchain technology, virtual reality, artificial intelligence, personalized health, gaming and film. As a technology incubator, Victory Square invests in game-changing entrepreneurs who are provided access to education programs, global mentorship networks, distribution partners, creative workspaces, resources, and other forms of operational support to help them scale internationally.
Victory Square has made multiple early partnerships and investments in the blockchain space. Approximately three years ago the company incubated and invested in BTL Group, which is now a $150 million dollar TSX-listed company offering blockchain solutions across multiple industries with particular focus on the finance, energy and gaming sectors. BTL’s showcase product – Interbit – is a blockchain platform that facilitates the rapid development of business applications that dramatically improve efficiency. Some of the world’s largest institutions are using Interbit to explore new opportunities on private blockchains.
A new social sports betting platform to be developed by Victory Square’s wholly owned subsidiary, FansUnite Media Inc. As a social sports data platform, FansUnite relies on robust data to allow members of its community to engage with like-minded individuals by collaborating, discussing, and predicting the winners of sporting events with a free virtual currency. The integration of blockchain technology into FansUnite’s social sports data platform could also lead to blockchain initiatives developed by other divisions and subsidiaries of Victory Square.
Integral to the FansUnite platform is the introduction of FAN Tokens, an in-game currency purchased with the cryptocurrency Ethereum that token holders can use to place wagers. FansUnite members will be able to earn FAN Tokens through participation in any number of networking effects identified in the company’s Bounty program.
“Blockchain technology and the inherent security it provides will enable us to push every envelope we can to build the most dynamic and responsive social sports betting platform,” said Darius Eghdami, Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer of FansUnite. “The opportunity to secure data through Blockchain certainly appeals to the accountant in me and we are confident it will become the gold standard among sports betting sites around the world.”
Company subsidiary Victory Square Health Inc., which serves as the venture arm dedicated to companies focused on the development of solutions in personalized health technologies, has also invested in Personalized Biomarkers Inc. (PBI). PBI develops test kits that reliably predict the expected response to a number of therapies prior to prescription, with an initial focus on diabetes. Within this field, five potential biomarkers have been identified, allowing PBI to enter a $4 billion market opportunity.
“We are excited for the opportunity to partner with Personalized Biomarkers as they have correctly identified a massive market opportunity, and have formed an exceptional team of industry leaders,” said Shafin Diamond Tejani, Chief Executive Officer of Victory Square. “This is another investment that is fully aligned with our newly created subsidiary, and one we expect to significantly impact the landscape of personalized medicine.”
A partnership with Insight Diagnostics Inc., also through Victory Square Health, will focus on the development of a personalized diagnostic solution for the improved management and prevention of Type II diabetes.
The company’s investment in V2 Games, a development and publishing studio of high-quality mobile games, is another example of incubating great ideas. V2 Games is well known for its successful launch of PAC-MAN Bounce and Beast Brawlers, two of the company’s releases that are capturing the gaming world by the millions of downloads.
In a move designed to strengthen its presence in film and entertainment, Victory Square has acquired a 40 percent equity stake in United Film Fund II, LLC, which is producing three major motion pictures in 2017 and 2018 including “What They Had,” starring two-time Academy Award winner Hilary Swank.
“This kind of investment in entertainment and film represents a major plank for our Company going forward and we consider ourselves fortunate to have the opportunity to acquire this 40% stake in the Film Fund,” said Tejani, who has launched more than 40 startups in 21 countries that employ hundreds of people and generate more than $100 million in annual revenues. “We believe it’s another strong initiative in film production for us and our stakeholders,” he added.
Victory Square has strategically positioned itself in the legal cannabis industry through an investment in Tantalus Labs, a Canadian-based cannabis cultivation company. Tantalus Labs optimizes plant health and sustainable cultivation by using a unique, environmentally controlled greenhouse engineered specifically for growing cannabis. Called a “SunLab,” the greenhouse takes 90 percent less electricity, uses filtered rainwater, and cools the growing environment to prevent stagnant moisture, recycling the air every 7 minutes to achieve maximum airflow.
Victory Square and its leadership team have seamlessly transitioned from its former identity as Fantasy 6 Sports Inc, a company focused solely on fantasy sports, mobile gaming and immersive sports, to a strategic technology company that creates, funds and successfully executes leading-edge ideas. A long-time technology entrepreneur and advocate of the industry, Tejani received the Person-of-the-Year Award at the 2017 Technology Impact Awards in British Columbia, a hallmark award category that recognizes betterment of the tech industry through leadership and philanthropic or enterprise skills and talents. Tejani has pledged to match up to $1 million in donated funds to be shared by a number of Canadian endeavors aimed at education and child-safe projects.
“These are exciting and important steps in the evolution and growth of our Company, and which properly and fully align with our strategic plan focusing on our core competencies in Blockchain Technology, Artificial Intelligence, Gaming, Personalized Health, Film and Virtual, Augmented and Mixed Reality,” said Tejani. “We’re spurred on by the success we have had in building on our original forays into fantasy sports, mobile gaming and immersive sports. In addition, we are energized by our most recent initiatives in sports, personalized health and entertainment and the confidence being shown by our shareholders in the dynamic direction of the Company.”
Victory Square Technologies and its management team believe innovation, incubation of excellent ideas and social responsibility are at the core of its growing success.

“The opportunity to expand to the rest of this new building over the course of the next six to 12 months ensures we won’t have to move again anytime soon,” Sharing Services Inc. Chairman Robert Oblon said. “We are on track for very significant growth here in the U.S., as well as upcoming international expansion, so this move is in preparation for what’s in front of us.”
The company recently signed a joint venture agreement with Health Wealth & Happiness Limited (“HWH”) to expand its “Elepreneurs” brand and market its products throughout Asia.

Nearly 1,000 people attended Sharing Services, Inc.’s first “Elepreneur Happiness Convention,” held March 2-3, 2018, in Dallas, Texas. Attendees arrived from several countries including the U.S., Canada, Mexico, Singapore and Hong Kong. Keynote speakers included several internationally known motivational leaders – Shawn Achor, Sandra Yancey, John Fleming and Les Brown – who provided exceptional material and inspirational discussion points.
“The enthusiasm of our attendees and the early success that we are experiencing is incredible considering our growth has been 100 percent organic, with almost no marketing from the company,” Oblon said. “I’m speechless by the dedication of our Elepreneur leaders and their entire teams, as they share our incredible line of products that have helped so many people.”
Sharing Services and its management team plan to travel the U.S. to hold several mini conferences to expand on the messages presented at its Happiness Convention that focus on helping people become “healthier, happier and wealthier.” Details of the company’s aggressive global expansion initiatives are soon to be announced, Oblon said.

Maxtech Ventures Inc. (CSE: MVT) (OTC: MTEHF) (FRANKFURT: M1N)
Maxtech Ventures Inc. (OTC: MTEHF) (CSE: MVT) (FRANKFURT: M1N), through its Maxtech Mining Zambia Limited subsidiary (“MMZL”), is eyeing global markets following its filing for two large scale exploration licenses for manganese in Zambia (http://nnw.fm/oJb56).
Maxtech Ventures Inc. (CSE: MVT) (OTC: MTEHF) (FRA: M1N), headquartered in Canada, is a junior exploration company assembling and acquiring mineral assets worldwide with a view to becoming a pure-play, low-cost supplier of manganese to the agricultural, industrial and green technology markets. Maxtech has assembled several high-grade manganese assets that it intends to develop with its established partners on the ground in strategic global regions.
Manganese is a diverse battery metal increasingly in high demand as an irreplaceable mainstay of steel production, an essential element of fertilizer in the agricultural sector, and as a vital resource in renewable battery technology. Maxtech Ventures is positioning itself to become a force in the green energy revolution where manganese is a critical element used in rechargeable batteries that power cars, hybrid vehicles, power tools and home appliances. LMD batteries, which typically use a 61 percent manganese in its mix and 4 percent lithium, are currently used in the Chevrolet Volt, Nissan Leaf, Hyundai Sonata and some Tesla-produced products. LMD batteries have numerous benefits including higher power output, thermal stability and improved safety compared to regular lithium-ion batteries.
“The price and demand for high-grade manganese is again on an upward trend. There are only a handful of junior pure play manganese explorers. This is an advantage Maxtech is looking to capitalize on as it expands its claims and strategic relationships in more mining jurisdictions,” said Maxtech Ventures CEO Peter Wilson.
Maxtech Ventures holds strategic partnerships; one of which is Grupo Maringa Ferro-Liga SA. Maringa is the second largest producer of high-grade manganese in South America with over 2,000 employees and over US$200 million in 2016 revenues.
Maxtech Ventures is currently advancing work on several high-grade manganese projects in Brazil with its first large land package in Juína in the State of Mato Grosso. This 40,000-plus hectare land package has assayed high-grade manganese results of 51.4 percent to 55.9 percent Mn. Detailed prospecting and geological studies are being continued on the Juína claims and a trial mining license (‘Guia de Utilização’) (GU) has been filed with the Departamento Nacional de Produção Mineral (DNPM) on one of the claims and the company is awaiting approval.
The company plans to expand its Brazilian operation into other states of the country including Pará and Goiás. Maxtech has signed a joint venture in the state of Pará on the exploration of 40,000 hectares as well as one in Goiás focused on the joint exploration, evaluation, and potential acquisition of manganese mineral deposits.
Maxtech is also currently preparing applications for licenses to explore potential high-grade manganese deposits in Zambia. The company will work closely with partner GeoQuest in its mandate to identify, joint-venture and acquire assets with high-grade manganese mineralization. GeoQuest is led and managed by Julian D.Green BSc., MSc., D.I.C., CGeol., EURGeol, FGS, FSAIMM. Julian has worked as a Professional Exploration Geologist in Eastern Europe, Australia and particularly Central and Southern Africa for a variety of mining and exploration companies including Tesla, KGHM, Rio Tinto and Caledonia.
Maxtech’s long-term strategy is to build an international industrial minerals company to produce and sell manganese ore and processed manganese into the global markets of Europe, North America and Asia. Maxtech Ventures has assembled a group of veterans in mining and exploration, acquisitions and field management to guide the development of its mineral interests.
CEO Peter Wilson has been the lead financier for public and private companies, raising over $300 million in equity and bond financings in the mineral and energy fields over the past two decades. As an experienced corporate executive, Wilson has extensive relationships in project acquisition, corporate structure and finance specializing in, but not limited to, the global resource sector.
John Harper, consulting geologist, is an international mineral exploration geoscientist and consultant with over 30 years of industry experience in base and precious metals, manganese, uranium and diamond exploration. He is a member in good standing of the Association of Professional Engineers and Geoscientists of Alberta (APEGA) and Ontario (APGO). His international experience has taken him to projects in Africa and Brazil where he managed comprehensive programs for Cancana’s manganese claims.

Pressure BioSciences Inc. (PBIO)
Richard T. Schumacher, President and CEO of Pressure Biosciences, Inc. (OTCQB:PBIO), joined Everett Jolly on the “Stock Day” podcast with exciting news about the first contract to be received that is based on their recent acquisition of intellectual property from BaroFold Inc.
Pressure BioSciences Inc. (OTCQB: PBIO) develops, markets and sells proprietary laboratory instrumentation and associated consumables to the life sciences sample preparation market. Sample preparation refers to the wide range of activities that precede most forms of scientific analysis. It is often complex and time-consuming, yet a critical part of scientific research. The market for sample preparation products is currently estimated at $6 billion worldwide.
The Company’s product line can be used to exquisitely control the sample preparation process. It is based on a patented, enabling technology platform called pressure cycling technology (“PCT”). PCT uses alternating cycles of hydrostatic pressure between ambient (14.5 psi) and ultra-high levels (up to 100,000 psi) to safely and reproducibly control critical biological processes, such as the lysis (breakage) of cells, the digestion of proteins, and the inactivation of pathogens.
Pressure BioSciences’ product line is led by its newly released, next-generation Barocycler 2320EXTREME instrument. Named a finalist in the prestigious 2017 R&D Awards (also known as the “Oscars of Innovation”), the Barocycler 2320EXT is already being touted by some key opinion leaders as an essential element of the $1.8 billion U.S. “Cancer Moonshot” program. For example, Professor Phil Robinson, Co-head of the cancer research center of the Children’s Medical Research Institute (Sydney, Australia), said in a recent interview: “We are collecting the whole proteome on 70,000 tumor samples from all classes where complete clinical outcome is known. Due to its unique capabilities, the Barocycler 2320EXT has become a critical part of our program. It is the primary enabler of the high-throughput component of the project. Without this step, our project simply could not be done. In fact, the Barocycler 2320EXT works so well we have just purchased two more.”
Momentum is building when it comes to the potential for using the Company’s unique PCT technology platform. Leading scientists are intrigued by Pressure BioSciences’ approach, which among other attributes, revolutionizes the process of rupturing cells (lysis) for further study, yielding superior biomolecules for investigation. The Company’s technology transcends current methods of breaking open cells, which use chemicals, blades, metal beads, or other damaging and altering methods that can ultimately adversely affect the result for researchers. Pressure BioSciences’ PCT technology utilizes customized, controlled hydrostatic (water) pressure to rupture cells in a chamber, enabling exquisitely customized levels of pressure to optimally break open different types of cells at prescribed pressure levels—something never before accomplished in a commercial setting. Using this pioneering method, the result is a truer, more legitimate sample, which boosts the efficacy of research and the quality of results. The potential impact of this technology on scientific advancement is enormous, enabling research scientists to begin their studies with biological samples of unprecedented integrity, with the potential to improve research outcomes at the earliest, most critical step. PCT can additionally inactivate pathogens (e.g., viruses, bacteria) using hydrostatic pressure, making the samples safer to study—another innovation with astronomical potential for application in a variety of markets.
The Company’s high-pressure instruments for research purposes are marketed throughout the United States, Europe, China and Japan. To date, Pressure BioSciences has installed nearly 300 PCT Systems in over 165 leading academic, government, biotech and pharma laboratories around the world. Its primary applications are in biomarker discovery, forensics, agriculture and pathology. Over 100 scientific papers have been published on the advantages of the PCT platform, which is also being used in the specialized fields of drug discovery and design, bio-therapeutics characterization, soil and plant biology, vaccine development and histology.
Impressive as their biotech business is, there is more to the PBI story. Pressure BioSciences recently received two patents in China for its novel Ultra Shear Technology (UST), a process that has potential in a wide range of industrial applications, including extending the shelf life of some food products and making two insoluble liquids (like oil in water) soluble. Patents have also been filed in many other countries worldwide. UST is a novel technique based on the use of intense shear forces generated from ultra-high-pressure valve discharge.
This important technology has the potential to play a significant role in a number of commercially important areas through its ability to create high-quality, stable nanoemulsions. Scientific studies indicate that improved absorption, higher bioavailability, greater stability, lower surfactant levels and other advantages can be achieved with nanoemulsions – all hugely important factors in the fields of nutraceuticals, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, and in various medical products. There is an enormous opportunity in the cannabis market, since the technology can potentially reduce oil droplets containing cannabidiol (CBD) to nanoparticles, after which they can be safely suspended in a stable water solution—something many companies have endeavored to achieve without success. Researchers looking for a way to increase the bioavailability of cannabinoids in the body will find this technology a game changer.
The Company’s UST technology also has possibilities in the production of clean label foods, which are currently processed using several innovative methods, including high-pressure treatments (such as Starbucks’ Evolution line of juices). In 2015, the worldwide market for high-pressure processed (HPP) food was estimated at U.S. $10 billion. UST uses ultra-high pressures and certain valves to generate intense shear forces under controlled temperature conditions to produce nanoemulsions, and which also significantly reduces food-borne pathogens. Pressure BioSciences’ initial focus with this technology will be to evaluate UST for the production of high-quality dairy products and beverages.
Pressure BioSciences Inc. (PBIO), closed the day's trading session at $3.90, up 5.41%, on 2,034 volume with 14 trades. The average volume for the last 60 days is 1,609 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.70/$8.50.
