Today, we would like to bring to your attention a new trade opportunity.
This company could potentially benefit from two of the hottest industries of 2019.
New Trade Alert: HQ Global Education Inc. (HQGE)
Has the way you consume media changed over the past few years?
One of the fastest growing industries has been the rise of podcasts.
According to a new report, the “podcast industry [is] expected to create $1 billion in annual revenue by 2021”.
The “latest revenue figure represents an increase of 53 percent in just a year.”
With this incredible consumer demand for podcasts, this has created a massive growth opportunity.
Companies that successfully position themselves first in front of this growing number of consumers could potentially gain loyal long-term customers.
As a result, this could give them a significant competitive advantage.
But that’s not all…
Imagine the growth potential if you combined two high growth industries?
2019 has marked the beginning of a massive shift for cannabis and CBD.
As a reminder, in December, the US passed the 2018 Farm Bill, which “makes hemp-derived CBD legal under certain circumstances”.
This is one of the most important milestones in the cannabis sector.
To best capture this sentiment, recently Consumer Reports stated: “CBD Goes Mainstream”, and in their survey “found that more than a quarter of people in the U.S. say they’ve tried CBD”.
Already, according to Fortune Magazine, “CBD for medical use is legal in 46 states” and “CBD derived from hemp rather than marijuana is legal in all states”.
Furthermore, according to one study, “CBD Market Could Reach $16 Billion by 2025” while another study estimates that “hemp-CBD market alone could hit $22 billion by 2022”.
HQGE, our new trade opportunity, could be positioned to benefit from both of these high growth industries.
HQGE is “dedicated to becoming the industry leader in data gathering, intelligence and education for the industrial CBD industry”.
The company aims to play “a major role in helping to fill the enormous global demand for CBD oil and related products”.
Just a few months ago, in June, HQGE announced that “it has acquired 100% of the assets of Hempsession Podcast, which has now become a division of HQGE”.
As the company explains: “Hempsession is a premier news and entertainment source of the CBD industry”.
“Hempsessions covers in-depth the entire value chain of hemp and its periphery from seed to final product.”
“Hempsession podcasts are curated by an experienced team of contributors to determine which aspects of CBD are most relevant to and sought after by its large and growing listener base”.
In August alone, HQGE announced multiple breaking developments that could have been overlooked by markets.
On August 7th, the company announced:
“HQ Global Education Announces Debut of 24-Hour Online Hempsession Radio Station”
“Hempsession Radio now resides on the Official Live65 Internet radio broadcasting and listening network, where users can choose to listen to thousands of human curated stations created by people from around the globe. Hempsession’s broadcasts will continue to feature a wide variety of Entertainment, Education and Insight, with special emphasis on Hemp-related news as well as presenting the best of Reggae and World Music, exclusive interviews and music by hot new upcoming musical artists, and its very own Miami Beach Top 5 Weekly Chart.”
But that’s not all…
On August 14th, the company announced:
“HQ Global Education’s Hempsession Is Now Available on iHeartRadio”
Here’s a little about iHeartRadio in the company’s own words:
“iHeartRadio is the national umbrella brand for iHeartMedia’s radio network, aggregating its over 850 local iHeartMedia radio stations across the United States, as well as hundreds of other stations from various other media, including companies such as Cumulus Media, Cox Radio and Beasley Broadcast Group who are also using this service.”
“The service hosts thousands of podcasts and offers on-demand functionality and is the only service that allows listeners to save and replay songs directly from live broadcast radio to their digital playlists. iHeartRadio is available across more than 90 device platforms including online, via mobile devices, and on some video-game consoles.”
As the company stated in the same August 14th press release:
“In conjunction with this announcement, Hempsession Founder and Host Oliver del Camino commented, “This is a great day for Hempsession. iHeartRadio is far and away the #1 favored destination for podcasters and is widely recognized as THE online source for music, radio and legitimate news. Only the top podcasters are invited and allowed to broadcast on iHeartRadio, and we are proud to be part of this elite group. Broadcasting on this platform lends even more credibility to Hempsession, and also provides us with another great asset for increasing our exposure and expanding our reach.”
Both of these announcements could be potentially significant developments for the company’s growth opportunity.
In addition, most recently, HQGE announced:
“HQ Global Education’s Hempsession Ready to Assume Management and Operational Control of Top Jamaican Tourist Restaurant”
“Los Angeles, CA, Aug. 16, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — via NEWMEDIAWIRE — HQ Global Education, Inc. (HQGE) announced today that its Hempsession division will be assuming full management and operational control of one of the largest restaurant and catering businesses in Jamaica, with an eye to rebranding it along the lines of Hempsession’s themes of Reggae, World Music and all things hemp-related. The parties have already agreed to all terms in a preliminary agreement, with final execution and the formal transfer of operational control to take place in Jamaica within the next few days.”
“The restaurant, currently named Jerk Center, is located near Ocho Rios in the heart of Jamaica’s top tourist attraction at the world-famous Dunn’s River Falls. Dunn’s River Falls has been called “Natural Disneyworld” and is considered by many to be the #1 tourist attraction in the entire Caribbean.”
“Ocho Rios and the local area are host to a large and steady stream of cruise lines and a major hub of tourist traffic, providing a steady flow of visitors to the area’s restaurants and attractions. Jerk Center is the largest restaurant at Dunn’s River Falls and also runs one of the largest catering businesses on the island. Jerk Center is a full service restaurant serving a complete menu including beer and wine. Mixed drinks will be added once Hempsession assumes control.”
“Hempsession Founder and Host Oliver del Camino commented, “We are excited to make this announcement, which is the first of several steps we intend to take as we expand our Hempsession brand and business model. This restaurant and catering business will both provide us with immediate cash flow from Day One, and also expand our international brand awareness through exposure to the millions of tourists who will continue to visit this region.””
HQGE has a history of experiencing significant upside volatility in recent weeks.
In August, HQGE rallied upwards of 75% from 0.004 to as high as 0.007.
Following this breakout HQGE has consolidated to its 20 day moving average (DMA).
Now, HQGE could be positioned for another breakout higher.
As more investors discover this company, they could notice what we believe to be a new and overlooked opportunity, positioned to benefit from two of the fastest growing industries.
