Ability (ABIL): the next moonshot project or a complete scam?

2:01 am ET, 19 Aug 2018

Ability Inc. (ABIL) shares are trading at 4.65, ahead of earnings next week.  The ABIL stock price skyrocketed on August 8, when the shares price more than doubled.  Previously, the stock popped on June 26 and gained more than 5x in value. What's ABIL stock price forecast?

First, some background on the company.  Ability Inc. provides interception, geolocation, and cyber intelligence products and solutions for security and intelligence agencies, military forces, law enforcement agencies, and homeland security agencies worldwide. It specializes in off-air interception of voice, SMS, and data communication from cellular and satellite communication networks; and deciphering solutions for cellular and satellite communications. Ability Inc. was founded in 1994 and is headquartered in Tel Aviv, Israel. 

This is a micro-cap company, with a market cap of less than $15 million.  The wild swings in the ABIL stock price are caused by the speculations about its technology named ULIN, which stands for Unlimited Interception System. ULIN allows silent and remote snooping on mobile phone calls, texts and location via a huge vulnerability in a core part of global telecoms infrastructure, the Signalling System No. 7 (SS7).  All that’s needed for ULIN to work is a target’s phone number.  

Quintum Capital conducted an in-depth study of ULIN, speculated to be a game changer for interception solutions.  Their research uncovered a number of critical issues regarding the product. Quintum questioned the future viability of the company, given that ULIN ultimately may not be successful.  In addition, sales of the company's current products seem to be declining, and serious legal liabilities may be looming.
