The Bottom Line on OZSC Stock
So what should you know about OZSC stock and Ozop Energy Solutions? To start, investors should know that this is an incredibly risky and speculative play. Without confirmation of anything other than the new subsidiary, diving in on hopes of a Tesla deal or other big customer is a huge gamble. Plus, even after a 100%-plus rally today, shares still trade hands for less than 3 cents each.
Although there is no ignoring the risky nature of OZSC stock, its fans may be on to something. The market for renewable energy solutions continues to gain popularity. With the upcoming inauguration of President-elect Joe Biden, longer-term catalysts for renewable energy are on the way. Plus, even before the inauguration, things are lining up for clean energy. Just look at the rise in interest in things like solar power and electric vehicles!
Be incredibly cautious with OZSC stock. If you like the catalysts but are nervous about the penny-stock status, try these nine stocks perfect for an energy revolution.
