Look, every investor knows about stocks like Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA) or Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL). The stocks that get all of the coverage from the media, so anytime they make an announcement, it’s not a surprise at all. These stocks have such large market caps and so many eyes on them, that you rarely make any sizable gains. In fact, you could say they are starting to trade like value stocks, with little to no volatility.
So how do you find those hidden gem stocks that can be 5x or 10x over a few days of trading? First, the OTC markets are a great place to look for these diamonds in the rough. Find companies that nobody’s ever even heard of and do your research on them. If you find stocks before the market discovers them, you can increase your gains substantially once a bullish catalyst arrives.
Another great way is to scan the internet for press releases. These announcements from companies often fly under the radar, and don’t get picked up by the mainstream media for a day or two. This means you can usually get in before the first major move upward from a positive headline. Let’s take a look at three hidden gem stocks to buy before their big moves.
Ludwig Enterprises, Inc (OTC:LUDG)
Here’s a company that has been busy as of late and you would know this if you followed along with its press releases. Back in June, the Ludwig CEO of a decade stepped down voluntarily for retirement. They were replaced by Ms. Anne Blackstone, the current CEO and Director of Ludwig’s subsidiary, mRNAforLife, Inc. Her background and experience in leading health-related companies will certainly come in handy. The move comes alongside a re-shift in focus for Ludwig back to its core business of technology and health industry projects. Now, there is rumours of major medical advisors coming aboard the company in some capacity. A breakthrough technology with mRNA medicine? Perhaps, one can wait and find out or get in now.
If you weren’t paying attention to these announcements, you might not have pieced together that this company is about to change its entire trajectory and focus on what it does best. The appointment of Blackstone signals a change in direction from the Board of Directors, and the company has even raised $200,000 in private equity funding and had its note holders waive interest to help solidify its financial position. If there’s a stock on this list that could possibly explode soon, it’s Ludwig.
iQSTEL is one of the more well known OTCQX stocks as it is a legitimate tech conglomerate in the making. With the company branching out into several directions including its Global Money One fintech platform, its global telecom division, and award-winning IoT services, iQSTEL is on the cutting edge of the tech industry and will likely see its first ever $90 million in annual revenue this year.
But what you might have missed is that iQSTEL recently received an offer from a private company for its EVOSS electric motorcycle subsidiary. With electric vehicles taking over the automotive industry, iQSTEL has decided to decline the offer and spin EVOSS off into its own NASDAQ-listed entity. The company has even stated that current iQSTEL shareholders may receive EVOSS shares at the IPO. If you are bullish on electric vehicles, now might be a good time to look at starting a position in the very undervalued iQSTEL.
Hive Blockchain (TSXV:HIVE.V)
Sometimes you just have to dig a little deeper and check out other stock exchanges to find some hidden gems. Here, we take a look at Hive Blockchain, a Vancouver-based Bitcoin mining firm that trades on the Toronto Venture Stock Exchange, which is similar to the US OTC Markets. Hive is a premier Bitcoin and Ethereum miner that has operations across Canada and Europe.
The company is mired in a crypto winter alongside any other crypto-related business. But when combing through their June report, the company mined an equivalent of 420 BTC which at an average price of about $20,000 equals $8.4 million in monthly revenue. Now think about what will happen when the crypto bull market returns. Even as the crypto markets are struggling, Hive is efficiently producing and holding millions of dollars worth of cryptos, that will be worth a lot more whenever the price of Bitcoin and Ethereum recover. If you don’t want to deal with the volatility and hassle of investing in cryptos, invest in a crypto miner like Hive while the crypto prices are at 52-week lows.
