Veye’s Take

Janison’s primary revenue source and largest opportunity for growth is the licence of its Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) digital Assessment Platforms and Products to education bodies, globally. As Janison’s revenue from SaaS platforms and products increases, its Gross Margin profitability is also expected to increase. In 1H21 the Company increased its Gross Margin percentage through a number of targeted cost efficiency programs which aided in lowering Cost of Sales. The stock has remained on an upside move for a long, with Doji formations in between, pointing some uncertainty for the trend direction. The immediate bullish candles have cancelled such uncertainties and maintained the uptrend. RSI together with price charts indicates that it can have the potential of growing well in the near to medium term. “Buy” was given to “Janison Education Group Limited” at the price of $0.41 on 12 August 2020. It has already grown by more than 53% in less than six months. Veye maintains a "Hold" on “Janison Education Group Limited” at the current price of $0.63
