This makes it really difficult for most companies to stand out in the crowd.

Chances are good you’ve looked through your mobile phone apps and discovered one you didn’t download. You can thank Digital Turbine for that.

Through the company’s “Ignite” digital software, apps are automatically delivered to mobile devices. This increases lead times, which helps companies improve their advertising budgets and reach wider audiences.

Digital Turbine’s technology platform has been used by more than 40 mobile operators and original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), delivering more than 2.3 billion app preloads for tens of thousands of advertising campaigns.

Digital Turbine stock has been bullish all year, advancing more than 350%, But it has actually been rewarding buy-and-hold tech penny stock investors since the start of 2017. Over the last three years, APPS stock has soared 1,100%.

While it might be difficult to replicate a 1,000%+ gain over the next three years, a doubling in share price over the next 12 months is entirely feasible.
