Veye’s Take

Following the recent US approval of Striate+, the receipt of the R&D tax incentive refund further strengthens the Company’s capital position and enables it to progress the Striate+ partnering program. The approval was received sooner than expected. This is a strategic milestone and a positive step in the pathway to partnering Striate+ in dental GBR indications. The stock was trading in a band, testing the closing levels of $0.450 made in the month of August 2020 repeatedly. The stock managed to close above this level. The upside momentum is seen on the price charts well supported by MACD. RSI is showing slight weakness which is an indication of retracement of the previous bullish candle. The overall uptrend signals upside potential in the stock. Veye maintains a "Hold” on “Orthocell Limited” at the current price of $0.535
