These commercialization strategies will help Akers become more profitable.

Currently, the stock has a $49 Million market cap. The current price is -74% below its 52-week high, but 4.5x its 52-week low. 

Will Akers bounce back? Per Finstead Research, the company’s stock has the average price target of $4, which is much above its current price ($0.56).

The company forward P/E ratio is valued at 2x, which is fairly low.

Akers Biosciences (NASDAQ: AKER) stock price has been hovering around $0.80 last week.  Over the last 3 months, Aker’s stock price appreciated around 6x. 

The company focuses on rapid diagnostic science. Its products include clinical and safety diagnostics, wellness products, and tests in development.

Akers’ key product is a rapid antibody test for allergy to a widely-used blood thinner, heparin. Heparin is a frequently used agent because of its low price. Akers’ test is significantly faster than other available alternatives on the market.

The majority of Aker’s revenues is still derived from the heparin test. 

The Company also has a line of breathalyzers for the health and wellness industry that sync with Bluetooth-enabled reading devices. 

The best-known breathalyzer test checks for oxidative stress which is a good indicator of a person’s overall health and well-being. 

The market is optimistic about the breathalyzer test because it could result in significant revenue opportunities for the Company.

Recently, the stock garnered some negative sentiment, because of the reduction of positive inflows by ETFs holding this stock.

According to Finstead Research, the average price target is $4 which is much higher than the current price (hovering around $0.80).

On the basis of forward P/E ratio, AKER is a cheap stock. 

The high Short Share of Float compared to the market, in general, is an indication of potential high volatility that may occur in the upcoming period.
