Investors are constantly on the lookout for catalysts that can influence price movements, and news often plays a pivotal role in this regard. Positive news can have a significant impact on stock prices. 

Let's dive into four stocks with recent news from this last week.

Epazz Inc. (OTC:EPAZ)

Epazz Inc., a mission-critical provider of drone technology, artificial intelligence software, cryptocurrency apps, blockchain mobile apps, and cloud-based business software solutions, has recently made significant strides that could potentially shape its future trajectory.

In a recent announcement, Epazz Inc.'s subsidiary, ZenaDrone, Inc., established ZenaDrone GmbH, a German corporation specializing in drone demonstrations. This development is particularly noteworthy as it allows the company to engage with the thriving European market, especially in Germany, where the demand for drone technology is on the rise. CEO Shaun Passley emphasizes the opportunity to expand the company's presence in Europe and showcase its capabilities to a broader audience.

The ZenaDrone 1000, a versatile multi-rotor drone designed for industrial and commercial applications, was recently featured at the AERO General Aviation Convention in Friedrichshafen, Germany. This exposure led to scheduled demonstrations with NATO partner countries, law enforcement departments, and a major rail line in Germany. Epazz Inc.'s drone's advanced safety features and cutting-edge technology position it as a valuable asset for various industries.

In another promising development, high-ranking U.S. Navy personnel have selected the ZenaDrone 1000 for a major presentation. Epazz Inc.'s success in gaining the attention of multiple branches of the U.S. military, including the U.S. Air Force, U.S. Marine Corps, and U.S. Army, underscores the potential of its drone technology within the defense sector. CEO Shaun Passley believes that a substantial portion of the company's revenue could come from U.S. government sales.

The U.S. Navy's interest in the ZenaDrone 1000 for missions such as surveillance, search and rescue, and reconnaissance reflects the drone's adaptability and potential impact. The EPAZ team is eager to demonstrate its capabilities, aiming to not only meet but exceed the Navy's expectations.

These recent developments position the company as a player to watch in the evolving landscape of drone technology. While we can't definitively state the outcomes, Epazz Inc.'s strategic moves in Germany and its success in gaining U.S. military attention open doors to substantial opportunities. As always, careful observation of how these events unfold will be key to assessing their true impact on EPAZ's future prospects.
