    Opportunity for high profit margins

    EXMceuticals is a manufacturer of highly refined cannabis ingredients for the pharmaceutical, medical, nutraceutical and cosmetic industries. The company is preparing to enter the lucrative pharmaceutical market for CBD and other regulated cannabinoids on a B2B basis over the next 12 months. The company is focusing on the establishment and expansion of its Portuguese and European operations, in particular its existing R&D activities and the planned industrial refinery for cannabis ingredients near Lisbon.

    EXMceuticals has completed the detailed planning for the equipment of an existing industrial plant in order to create a pharmaceutical quality factory that operates on a large scale and is certified according to EU GMP standards. The first production of medical ingredients from cannabis, including CBD, is expected once financing for the project is completed. Brightfield Group analysts forecast that the European CBD market will grow from EUR 373 million in 2019 to EUR 1.5 billion in 2023, with the global market expected to be worth EUR 14.4 billion by 2025. The analysts of Align Research have set a target price of CAD 0.958 in their latest study and assigned a 'Conviction Buy' rating.

    Positive effects of COVID-19

    Media and Games Invest plc has a profitable and growing portfolio of companies in the games and digital media sectors. The Group's primary objective is to grow through acquisitions, restructure and integrate companies into one large platform, and this strategy has so far produced a number of synergies including cost reductions, leverage and economies of scale. According to management, only a few competitors, particularly in the gaming sector, are pursuing this strategy, leaving room for acquisitions at a low price.

    In the current COVID 19 pandemic, video games have once again proven to be crisis-proof and non-cyclical. As consumers had more leisure time, the demand for entertainment and thus for video games has risen sharply. The uncertainty surrounding the COVID 19 pandemic and its impact on the global economy remains difficult to predict. Although GBC Research's analysts remain cautious due to the volatility of the video games business, they remain fundamentally positive and have raised their price target from EUR 2.10 to EUR 2.85 and maintained their 'Buy' rating.

    Plug Power, BYD, Osino Resources - New price objectives!

    • Analysts

    Warren Buffet and his business partner Charlie Munger probably thought "Build your Dreams" when in 2008, with their investment company Berkshire Hathaway, invested in the then-unknown Chinese electric car manufacturer BYD. At that time, the share was quoted at the equivalent of EUR 0.10. Now, in October 2020, BYD trades at over EUR 14.00 and rush to new all-time highs almost weekly. The news situation is favourable, and the direct comparison with the big brother from overseas does not make the stock look overpriced.
