  • Small Caps

The largest listed companies around the globe have been experiencing brisk demand for their shares for several years in connection with the interest rate policy of the ECB and the Fed. On the one hand investors invest directly in the shares of these companies due to their high tradability, but on the other hand the market share of passively managed products such as ETFs and certificates is growing. People are looking less and less into the balance sheets of small cap stocks. In view of the fact that this year's German Equity Forum will take place in Frankfurt next week, interested institutional investors, analysts and journalists will again have the opportunity to talk intensively about business development with decision-makers from listed small cap companies.

EXMceuticals Inc. is a young player in the cannabis industry and positions itself as a supplier of CBD. The focus of the company is that the cultivation of cannabis plants takes place e.g. in Malawi. The climate and the labour force in the southern part of continental Africa offer optimal conditions for a high-quality and efficient cultivation of the plants. Further processing will take place in Portugal, from where Europe and the rest of the world will be supplied with the ingredient CBD.

Jonathan Summers is Chairman of EXMceuticals and will present the company at the German Equity Forum. According to the website, a profit before amortization of USD 76.26 million is expected for 2020. Given that market capitalization currently stands at EUR 21.25 million, it is likely to be worth taking a closer look at EXMceuticals.


The situation at Saturn Oil & Gas Inc. is similarly exciting. In the first six months of this year, the company generated sales of over CAD 10 million and profits of around CAD 2.8 million. Saturn's market capitalization is currently at EUR 21.65 million. The CEO of Saturn, John Jeffrey, will also present his company at the German Equity Forum.

Due to the development of oil prices, it is only a matter of time before oil companies return to the focus of investors and valuations rise. At the end of the day, the company's dependence on oil cannot be permanently denied, and under return aspects, the more environmentally friendly Canadian oil industry, with growth companies such as Saturn, is particularly interesting in an international comparison.


There was a kind of accolade recently for wallstreet:online AG. The company has been granted the status of "bankable" by the Deutsche Bundesbank. As part of a voluntary creditworthiness analysis, the Berlin industry leader for financial information was rated "3", which corresponds to an investment grade rating of "A" from the S&P agency.

"Five successful acquisitions with a total volume of nearly EUR 30 million within less than two years have significantly broadened the business of wallstreet:online AG and created a foundation that is more solid than ever before. The Bundesbank's rating confirms that our growth is driven by a highly profitable business model. These are excellent prerequisites for further expanding the portal business and at the same time establishing a strong - transaction-based - second division in the FinTec area," says Stefan Zmojda, CEO of wallstreet:online AG. Board colleague Michael Bulgrin will be available for discussions with the participants of the German Equity Forum.
