Long Island Ice Tea Corp | $LTEA Stock | Shares Fly On Blockchain Announcement


Long Island Ice Tea Corp (NASDAQ: LTEA)


On Thursday morning before the market opened, Long Island Ice Tea ($LTEA) announced that they will be shifting their focus to use blockchain technology. This technology is a product of Bitcoin and how it accounts for transactions which will likely be adopted by other companies as well.

The company also announced that they will be changing their name from Long Island Ice Tea Corp to Long Blockchain Corp.

With all the buzz around cryptocurrencies, it’s no surprise this stock is ripping higher following this news. However, I am a bit skeptical prices will be able to maintain this huge run up as most of this move, if not all, is pure speculation.

Long Island Ice Tea Corp Technicals

As you can see in the chart above, $LTEA has been extremely volatile in the premarket with highs over $14 compared to yesterday’s close of just $2.44, well over 500% gain. This stock will be on a lot of traders radars so expect a lot of volatility and volume throughout the day and possibly for the rest of the week.

If you are look to trade this stock, make sure you time your entries and place hard stops because this stock will be extremely shifty and volatile.
