Insignia Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ:ISIG) used to trade in a much higher band in the period of 2009-2011 but the crash in 2011 brought the stock from $7 levels to sub-$2 levels very fast. Almost all of the year 2012 and most of 2013 was spent to make a Rounded Bottom base. If this Saucer pattern survives, then this stock can turn out to be a multibagger in the coming year, with targets of $5 and then $7.50. The recent short term range breakout may increase the bullish momentum.
