Aureus News Update & More


Aureus Inc. (OTCMKTS:ARSN) – News Update

We’re swinging back around today to relay the new PR released by Aureus this morning. For those of our readers who may not have read the report that we published on Monday morning, you can find it right here. It outlines the most recent announcements from the company which would give more context to this morning’s announcement.

The company is reporting its progress with regard to marketing and the status of its Metro Atlanta project that intends to see just under two dozen “Micro Markets” established around the city. 

ATLANTA, GA / ACCESSWIRE / November 19, 2020 / Aureus, Inc. (OTC PINK:ARSN) (“Aureus” or the “Company”) (www.AureusNOW.com) an emerging leader in the food brand development industry which owns the Yuengling’s Ice Cream brand (“Yuengling’s Ice Cream” or “Yuengling’s”) (www.yuenglingsicecream.com) including all intellectual property, will diversify its interests into the food sector by developing Micro Markets throughout the metro Atlanta area. This new Subsidiary is named Aureus Micro Markets (AureusMicro.co)

“We have multi-pronged marketing effort for our new Micro Market enterprise that includes, direct mail, telemarketing, Google Ads, and outside sales/locators.

These efforts have been layered in over the last few weeks. We have seen progress coming from the Website/Google Ads which have been running for 3 weeks. The leads produced are being followed up on.

Last week, we sent 1000 direct mailers to businesses that were targets in the metro area. This week, we established a great location from that mailer; more to follow on that.

The most immediately successful effort is the outside sales and locators. Our new outside salesperson came on board this week. In addition, we brought in two professional contract locators. As of the end of business on Tuesday, they had secured three additional new locations, with one of those being a multi-unit installation in a single business. The sales staff also has a high level of confidence on another three, as of Wednesday morning. At this rate, we expect to have homes for the first ten units we purchased by the end of the month. These will be physically deployed in the coming weeks.” Stated CEO Everett Dickson. (>>Read Full PR via OTC Markets)

Options Reviews, New Ideas

Options Recaps:

Our only new idea and primary target yesterday was Target, which performed incredibly well on the day. We had signaled interest in the TGT Weekly $143-146 Calls in our morning report, and those produced some serious multibag gain opportunities.

Here are the total profits that were available to anyone that had caught our premarket report:

TGT Weekly $143-146 Calls 
$143: 4.45-11.70 (+163%)
$144: 3.35-10.65 (+218%)
$145: 3.00-9.81 (+227%)
$146: 2.50-8.80 (+252%)

We are also going to want to stay close to the action as TGT continues to show strength. We are going to roll up to include the TGT Weekly $150-155 Calls, which we will track into the end of the week tomorrow.


Aureus, Inc. ARSN 

We had also tagged ARSN in yesterday morning’s extended watchlist, and multibag gains were to be had there as well. We witnessed a low of .0025 before it ran up to .0067, for an intraday push of 168% that came on an all-time record volume of 427.3M shares.

An interesting factoid on ARSN: The stock actually represents the original dairy company that the Yeungling family established during Prohibition to supplement the losses from their world-renowned brewing business.
