Shares of venture capital firm Tern PLC (LON: TERN) surged 8% in an attempt to break above the recent resistance level but encountered intense selling pressure at the level forcing the price lower.

The company has a unique business model. It invests exclusively in startups within the Internet of Things (IoT) segment and recently reported a full-year pretax profit of £800,000 compared to 2019’s £800,000 loss.

Tern has invested in companies such as; Device Authority, a leader in Identity and Access Management (IAM) for the Internet of Things (IoT) and Blockchain; FundamentalVR, which delivers VR haptic ‘flight simulators' for surgery; and InVMA, an experienced IoT and Industry 4.0 System Integrator and Value Added Reseller, among others.

The company is well-positioned to benefit from the projected growth of the IoT sector over the next few years, driven by the rollout of 5G networks that can support fast communications between IoT devices and human beings.

Tern is constantly looking for new companies to invest in, which will fuel its future growth while mentoring and providing additional resources to its current investees to achieve their growth objectives.

A positive announcement could fuel the next rally in Tern shares, pushing it above the 13p resistance level and the 14p level. However, we are likely to get more pushback from the bears for now until the shares build up enough momentum to break higher.*
