Potential Catalysts:

RPC is known as a momentum stock with speculative traders. Any type of multiple day rally could bring irrational buyers into this high beta stock.

RPC remains a favorite of short term traders, who offer large amounts of liquidity to microcap stocks.

RPC’s Onko -Sure product is very cost effective and can be marketed to the masses.

RPC remains a short squeeze candidate due to unsubstantiated rumors of large naked short positions.

RPC’s Onko-Sure product is attempting to gain a foothold into the major growth markets of Russia and India.

RPC’s CIT patented technology also has potential to take advantage of India’s growing economy pending it’s approval.

RPC’s product line is fairly diversified for a microcap stock.

CIT achieved favorable results in a pre-clinical study at the University of Alberta, Canada.

Increased global demand for anti-aging products could provide RPC a revenue stream from the Elleuxe product line.

The Elleuxe product line could benefit from the recent increased spending on anti-aging products by the 25-30 year old age group.

Potential Risks:

RPC, like all small biopharma companies could need to seek additional financing in the future.

Global market uncertainty could make it difficult for RPC to raise additional capital.

RPC can potentially be lumped in as a “one trick pony” biopharma despite having a somewhat diversified product line.

Earnings visibility on RPC remains uncertain.

RPC faces potential challenges in marketing and distributing it’s product lines.
