Investors are always looking for catalysts that may impact price moves. One big driver that often impacts prices is news. Positive news sometimes has the ability to send stocks soaring.
Let’s take a closer look at four such stocks, all listed on the OTC markets.
Sekur Private Data Ltd. (OTC: SWISF) (CSE: SKUR) has been making significant advancements in the field of cybersecurity. In August 2023, SWISF achieved remarkable milestones in optimizing its operations. Notably, it has successfully reduced its Customer Acquisition Cost (CAC) to a mere US$26 per customer, surpassing its 2023 target CAC by an impressive 65%. This achievement underscores Sekur’s commitment to cost-effective growth.
In addition to CAC improvements, Sekur has seen a notable uptick in the average revenue per user (ARPU), now standing at US$8.75. This represents a substantial 3.4% increase compared to July 2023. The surge in spending per subscriber can be attributed to the revamped Sekur website, which offers bundled solutions, enhancing the value proposition for users.
Furthermore, Sekur has witnessed a remarkable 24% month-over-month increase in average spending per customer since July 2023, reaching US$14.97. This metric encompasses all expenses for users registered under a specific customer, such as families, small businesses, or enterprises. With the impending launch of new offerings like SekurVoice for encrypted voice calls and SekurPRO for secure video conferencing in Q1 2024, SWISF anticipates further growth in spending per customer and user.
Sekur's strategy revolves around reducing CAC through targeted digital marketing initiatives, including campaigns on platforms such as Google Ads and META. SWISF's commitment to enhancing website content and SEO efforts has played a pivotal role in its success. With the goal of achieving 100,000 monthly website visits and a conversion rate exceeding 2.5%, Sekur aims to lower CAC to an impressive US$4.
Alain Ghiai , CEO of Sekur Private Data said: "We are very happy to be ahead of our plans for our CAC reduction. Right now, if we count the money we are spending on digital marketing, and the organic growth from the SEO efforts, we are tracking a CAC of US$26 as of August 2023 . This is the 3rd month of us achieving a CAC of well under US$50 . All metrics, from ARPU to monthly sales, are increasing month over month as well. As we increase spending on digital media, we expect to increase our user base, and our organic traffic and SEO are also contributing to this lowering of the CAC. Our immediate goal is to reach a website traffic of one hundred thousand visits per month, and since we are already tracking a conversion rate of over 2.5%, we could get the CAC down to US$4 with those visits, based on our SEO and digital PR marketing costs of US$15,000 per month.”
Furthermore, Sekur has introduced SekurVPN and customizable bundles for consumers and businesses. This strategic move has proven highly successful, with approximately 50% of customers opting for bundles, and 32% choosing SekurVPN either within a bundle or as a standalone service.
In summary, Sekur Private Data Ltd. stands as a beacon of innovation in the cybersecurity landscape. With its impressive CAC reduction, ARPU increase, and expanding product portfolio, the company is well-positioned for sustained growth and success in the realm of digital security. These achievements underscore Sekur's commitment to providing comprehensive and secure communication solutions for individuals and businesses alike.

In a recent update dated September 5, 2023, SunHydrogen announced a significant development.
