After seeing success with many Big Board COVID-19 plays this year, we are scouring the OTC Markets looking for the best penny stock COVID-19 plays. Our track record has been pretty good this year as our subscribers have been in Moderna since $21, Inovio since $5, and Sorrento since $4. In this article, we take a look at OPTI stock, a smart COVID-19 play trading under $.05 a share.As you can see, OPTI stock has a history of big moves. Our only regret is not discovering the company back in June before its run to $.19 a share. However, the stock has seen a big drop and the dip is a buying opportunity. OPTI Stock Daily Chart

OPTI Stock

First up, here's a little background info for those not familiar with OPTI stock. With Locations in Carlsbad and Vista, California, OPTEC International is a developer and manufacturer of electronic LED, Ultraviolet (UV) & UV-C safety products, and related advanced technologies and PPE (Personal Protection Equipment) products. The company's Safe-Scan product line is being launched at a time when HR directors and facilities managers are experiencing extreme concern with respect to keeping environments safe during the global pandemic crisis and the safe reopening of the U.S. economy.

$5,000,000 Financing

OPTI stock just secured a $5,000,000+ funding approval with California based RB Capital Partners, Inc. RB Capital has agreed to provide funding to the Company in the form of premium to market 12-month promissory notes. The minimum amount of funding that RB Capital has agreed to provide to the Company under these terms is $5,000,000 payable during the next three to six months period.The proceeds will be used for further development, increased production, and distribution of a suite of UV-C sanitization products that the Company can't keep on the shelves due to increased demands. Currently, a prominent San Diego school district has deployed the touchless temperature scanners in addition to the Rover room sanitizers, and the Company is in talks with other local school districts to help safely re-open in person tuition. The company is also in discussion with a popular non-profit fitness organization to help safely re-open indoor activities.

UV & UV-C Hydroxyl Air Purifier Solutions for Commercial and Personal Applications

OPTI stock now has a suite of products that effectively kills 99.99% of virus, bacteria, germs, and other harmful contaminants based on SGS testing (the world's leading inspection, verification, testing, and certification company).The iWand is a portable UV-C LED disinfection device equipped with aviation aluminum, military-grade hardening treatment. The iWand comes with a powerful UV-C light eliminating the use of harmful chemicals such as bleach, ozone, and ammonia. The iWand provides an effective, proven, non-toxic cleaning solution that protects people from harmful bacteria and ultimately prevent illnesses and diseases.Additionally, the OPTEC Rovers 1, 2, and 3 use medical-grade UV technology to sterilize 1,000 sq. ft., 2,000 sq. ft., and 3,000 sq. ft. spaces respectively. The Rover 1 is an ideal soliton for classrooms and hospital rooms between 500-1,000 sq. ft and the Rovers 3 and 4 are the perfect sterilization solution for larger spaces such as warehouses, gyms, auditoriums, conference areas, and more.[embed]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ESysrPeO3p4[/embed]These products are especially critical in light of the recent spike in reported cases in large gathering areas including college campuses across the country. The CDC's updated guidance generates a new level of severity when it comes to air sterilization. Optec has already been providing companies, schools, police departments, and countries with its UV-C sterilization products and is primed for wider distribution given the increased demand.

OPTI Stock Killing Bacteria

Ultra-Violet light is now the world's most advanced solution for killing bacteria. UV-C LED technology falls directly in line with the company’s main goal of global sustainability. Eliminating the use of harmful chemicals such as bleach, ozone, and ammonia, UV-C provides a better, safer clean environment.UV-C works because when exposing microorganisms to UV-C light, the light penetrates through their cell wall and disrupts the structure of their DNA molecules – prohibiting reproduction. By deactivating the DNA of bacteria, viruses, and other pathogens, it destroys their ability to multiply and cause disease.Specifically, UV-C light causes damage to the nucleic acid of microorganisms by forming covalent bonds between certain adjacent bases in the DNA. The formation of such bonds prevent the DNA from being unzipped for replication, and the organism is unable to reproduce. In fact, when the organism tries to replicate, it dies.Ultraviolet technology is a non-chemical approach to disinfection. In this method of disinfection, no harmful chemicals are added which makes this process simple, safer, more effective, and low maintenance.Optec has filed several patent applications in recent months and recently received provisional patent approval for the integration of digital touchless temperature scanning technology into cellphones and tablets as registered with the US Patent Office. This now allows the company to officially state the technology is “Patent-Pending”.

OPTEC BioMasks

OPTI stock has now added additional FDA approved products to the company's Inventory catalog including an advanced series of Bio-Masks integrating a patented nanotechnology process using an "NBELYAX" active agent ingredient. This type of process significantly increases the removal of DNA and RNA from pathogens providing additional protection. The masks offer an equivalent of N-99 protection exceeding the protection offered by the most popular N-95 mask. Offered for adults and children in a series of graphic designs, including licensed TV show versions for the children's versions and a special Limited edition for the OCTOBER "Breast Cancer Awareness Month 13+".The products are available for purchase at https://optecuvc.com/store/.OPTEC is also introducing a new advanced personal FDA approved sanitizer range of products which include multiple versions of sanitization along with bacterial and virus protection technology for individual and commercial use.

Short & Distort

The biggest challenge facing OPTI stock comes not from making sales and growing its business, but rather short-sellers. When we looked into this company, we could not believe the number of paid bashers saying that the company has no product to sell and is a scam. First of all, all anyone needs to do is go to OTC Markets and look at the financials for OPTI. This is a company that has grown revenues from $24k a year to over $1 million.Second, would RB Capital lend $5 million to a scam company? We don't think so!Third, regarding product in the warehouse. The warehouse is just for distribution. Product comes in and goes right out. This is how a healthy business operates. Matter of fact, we would be more worried if the warehouse was full of product as it would signal the company couldn't sell its inventory. Obviously, these paid bashers don't understand how business works.Fourth, go ahead and order product just like Ryan did.View on Twitter/X

OPTI Stock Bottom Line

OPTI stock is an exciting COVID-19 play, and we have not even discussed its fuel optimization business, which we will cover in our next article on OPTI stock. For now, the focus is on COVID-19 as that presents the most immediate opportunity for OPTI stock.While many are betting on a vaccine to save the day, we see testing and prevention as the better bet. This comes as a Hong Kong man contracted the coronavirus twice in the same year. Most experts were under the impression that once someone had COVID-19, that they would be immune from catching it again. This new development has investors realizing that COVID-19 is going to be with us for a long time. The only solution is testing and prevention.Once more news hits the tape, we doubt these levels will last. Now is a great time to pick up cheap exposure before the next big run.As always, good luck to all (except the shorts)!
