    Aspermont: GBC Research sees 300% opportunity

    Can Aspermont Limited shares multiply? Yes, say the analysts at GBC Research. Their price target is EUR 0.04. Aspermont shares are currently trading at around EUR 0.01. The optimism is quite understandable, as there is much to suggest that Aspermont's share price will rise: Attractive niche, strong growth, debt-free, and completed consolidation.

    2023 was a year of consolidation for the B2B media company for the raw materials industry. Nevertheless, Aspermont increased its turnover by 3% to AUD 19.20. Particularly pleasing: at AUD 11.1 million, over 70% of revenue is now recurring. At 57%, the gross margin is high and expected to increase to over 60% in the current year. Last year, a joint venture was terminated and written off. The net result fell accordingly from AUD -0.4 million to AUD -1.7 million in 2023. Other non-profitable products or events were also discontinued and new managers were brought on board. Aspermont now wants to focus on profitable and high-growth areas. According to GBC, this should already pay off in the current year. The analysts expect Aspermont to return to double-digit growth and increase revenue from AUD 21.56 million in the current year to over AUD 31 million by 2026. The EBITDA margin is expected to rise to 19.9% during this period. Free cash flow of AUD 4.30 million is expected as early as next year. Aspermont is currently valued at around AUD 40 million.

    Canopy Growth: Share intoxicated by German fantasy

    Canopy Growth has shown in recent weeks that a share can quickly double due to turnaround fantasies. From April 1, 2024, cannabis will be officially recognized as a non-narcotic in Germany. The euphoria among investors is correspondingly high and shares in the sector have risen significantly in the past two weeks. Canopy Growth shares, for example, have more than doubled to EUR 6.89. However, an all-time low of EUR 2.80 was only reached at the beginning of March. Around three years ago, the share was still trading at over EUR 300. This puts the rise in the share price into perspective.

    In any case, Canopy sees itself in a good position to benefit from legalization in Germany. In a recent interview with Bloomberg, Canopy's CEO said that the German cannabis market could grow from the current EUR 500 million to EUR 2.5 billion in just a few years. In the medium term, he believes that the market in Germany could even reach a volume of EUR 5 billion. Canopy is active in Germany with the Storz & Bickel vaporizer brand and with Canopy Medical for medical cannabis products. The legalization of recreational cannabis and the expected growth of the medical cannabis market in Germany would offer exciting growth opportunities.

    Canopy manager Tara Rozalowsky comments: "The reclassification of cannabis as a non-narcotic is a critical step for patients and physicians, enabling them to better explore cannabis as a viable treatment option for a broader range of conditions. We are excited to continue serving the medical community with high-quality cannabis products that meet patients' needs, and we look forward to further expanding our already leading presence in the German medical cannabis market."

    Super Micro Computer: Further strong growth expected

    After the price fireworks that have driven Super Micro Computer's share price up by over 250% in the current year alone, it has been consolidating at a high level over the past two weeks. The AI boom is driving the Company's turnover and has even led the share into the S&P 500. Analysts are confident that the shares can do even better - but the air is getting thinner. JP Morgan has added the Super Micro Computer share to its coverage and recommends it as a "Buy". However, the target price of USD 1,150 is not far off the current level. The Company is one of the major beneficiaries of the rapidly increasing demand for data centers in the field of artificial intelligence.

    The analysts expect the market for "AI inferencing workloads" to multiply from USD 41 billion in 2023 to USD 283 billion by 2028, which should benefit Super Micro and enable the Company to grow by 43% per year over the next four to five years.


    Aspermont is a hot turnaround story. After last year's consolidation, the Company is poised for double-digit growth and rising margins. GBC's price target shows the direction it could take. In recent weeks, Canopy has demonstrated that bombed-out shares can quickly gain several hundred percent. However, doubts about the sustainability of the price increase are justified. Companies in the sector have not really been able to benefit operationally from the market openings in Canada and the US. Super Micro has excellent growth prospects. However, it must capitalize on them to justify its valuation of over USD 58 billion.

    Next share price jump? TUI, Aixtron, and Desert Gold

    Is the Aixtron share about to make its next leap? The shock of the profit warning was digested with a rise of over 10%. Three analysts recommend the share as a "Buy". Desert Gold is also ripe for a new rally. After more than doubling in a short space of time at the beginning of the year, it consolidated textbook style. Will it soon jump to a new yearly high? The Company is certainly not expensive, and experts consider a gold price of USD 3,000 possible. Important drilling results are also on the horizon. TUI is currently performing well operationally. The summer season business is booming, and the bankruptcy of a competitor is providing additional momentum. Nevertheless, the share is trending sideways. Could the purchase of an island be the trigger?

    After the parliamentary elections in France at the weekend, it is not only in politics that the course for the future needs to be set anew. Recent news from oil producer Saturn Oil & Gas revealed that it has taken a major step toward becoming a "midsize producer. Following this significant transaction, several analysts have given the share a thumbs up and see an opportunity for multiplication. The hydrogen sector is also seeing new movement, suggesting that a long-term rebound could be on the horizon.

    Growth of 100% possible with stocks like Alibaba, Verve Group, Super Micro Computer, and GameStop

    The NASDAQ is rushing from high to high. While it was primarily stocks with AI fantasy at the beginning of the year, there has even been a resurgence in e-mobility in recent weeks. Tesla reported surprisingly high deliveries in the second quarter, and Volkswagen bought into the startup Rivian to solve its software problems. This brings new fantasy for investors. However, with such advanced upward trends, it is important to find followers, meaning stocks that have not yet performed as well. We are therefore taking a closer look at some typical "growth stocks" as the revaluation overseas is likely not yet complete.
