PaySign Inc: Perfect Time to Make a Double, Fundamentals SurgingPaysign Stock Too Cheap to Ignore

After the massive 63% rally from the March lows, it’s difficult to find any technology stock that may have been overlooked, but I may have found one. Paysign Inc (NASDAQ:PAYS), a provider of payment solutions services, prepaid debit cards, rewards programs, and customizable payment services.

Paysign’s clients are found in sectors including healthcare, hospitality, pharmaceuticals, and retail.

PAYS stock plummeted to $3.63 during the March sell-off. It has rallied 178%, but Paysign stock remains well below its 52-week high of $17.46, down 26% over the past year.

PAYS stock could be set to signal a bullish golden cross pattern if the 50-day moving average can break above the 200-day moving average.

The chart shows that a breakout could send Paysign stock to $18.00.
