In my experience the Stevia pitches I’ve seen are all pump and dumps. Haven’t looked at this particular one, but there’s no reason to expect a stevia company to be particularly notable, it’s just a plant grown by many farmers — my guess is that the only emerging brands in the area are run by, and will continue to be run by, the majors, like Cargill’s Truvia, and if you don’t have a brand there’s not much point in owning anything related to a niche sweetener in my opinion.

You’re better off looking into STEV which I believe is the real deal. Got this from a Vietnamese news broadcast in relations to STEV.

Plans don’t mean assets or revenue or income, they are as cheaply made as promises. I don’t like to make broad pronouncements since I obviously haven’t studied every single company that’s touted as having some connection to the… Read more »

Hard to imagine how this company could be worth $30 million. Stevia is a plant, not something that can be owned, so you’d have to be confident that they genuinely have a different way of producing sweetener that will make them better or different than anyone else who can grow or process stevia. The financials are ridiculous, expenses almost doubled to over $1 million in the past quarter to boost revenue from $40,000 to $80,000, so unless you’re an expert on the sweetener market and can explain why they’re going to be growing revenue by leaps and bounds for a… Read more »
