Buzz on the Bullboards: Passion Investing Meets COVID Solutions

Investors remain tense over an uncertain outlook for the future, as Congress considers approving further stimulus and jobless reports continue to pour in, some companies, and by extension, some portfolio results, have been performing better than others.

This market uncertainty has extended deep into many of the companies working to combat the spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic.



Take for example, Halifax-based R&D nanotech life sciences company Sona Nanotech Inc. (CSE: SONA, Forum). This small Canadian company is on-track to launch a coronavirus detection device within months, assuming successful trials and government approval, and its name has been popping up among Bullboard chatter frequently.

Where other companies have struggled to dig themselves out of a hole since March 2020, SONA stock has continued to climb and even Sona’s management isn’t sure why.





Canadian cannabis licensed producer Aphria Inc. (TSX: APHA, Forum) has been on a roll lately and is continuing to be a top stock among Bullboarders. After reporting gross revenue for adult-use cannabis of $56.7 million in Q4 2020, an increase of 27% from prior quarter and the fifth consecutive quarter of growth, APH followed that up with a new deal to provide Israeli medical-cannabis company Canndoc with 3,000 kg of dried bulk flower for a period that could last as long as seven years.





As tech company Datametrex AI Ltd. (TSX-V: DM, Forum) moves to upgrade to the OTCQB Market exchange in the United States, it recently caught investor attention with the news that it had successfully been awarded a second contract in the United States defense industry, United States Air Force via Wright State Applied Research Corp.

It is almost back to school time for a lot of kids and many kids are back already. This has left many concerned about how we can manage safe distancing in light of the coronavirus pandemic and DM has responded by rolling out its screening solutions for health and safety in the education sector in anticipation of a purchase order from schools and international student recruiting agencies by launching of the new COVID-19 pre-screening and screening tools.




It is good to be PyroGenesis Canada Inc. (TSX-V: PYR, Forum) right now, the high-tech company just announced its Q2 2020 Results: Net Income $5.2 million; gross margin 60%; earnings per share of $0.04. This followed news of total receipts of over $7.5 million in payments under the $25+ million Drosrite contract



American Creek Resources Ltd. (TSX-V: AMK, Forum) reported that its joint venture partner, Tudor Gold Corp, announced that it had completed the second set of diamond drill holes at the JV flagship property, Treaty Creek, located in the heart of Northwestern British Columbia’s Golden Triangle.

Canadian oil and gas producer Hillcrest Resources Ltd. (TSX-V: HRH, Forum) has been busy in recent weeks and its name has been making frequent appearances on the Bullboards. Having signed a term sheet with a New York based firm for a $5 million (CAD) convertible loan, Hillcrest announced that it was evaluating a funding proposal which would allow it to potentially access up to $5 million for West Hazel field development activities and the funding was conditional on Hillcrest purchasing the JV partners working interest in the asset. Hillcrest added that it had an agreement in principal for the acquisition of the JV partner's interests in exchange for three million Hillcrest common shares.

A passion for this company is pursuing opportunities related to clean energy technology with potential to substantially reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

This brings us to this week’s investor poll on Stockhouse – Do you practice “passion investing” of any kind? An investment where making money is only part of why you’re involved, you love what a company is doing and the bottom line of making a bigger return than you invested maybe isn’t as crucial as seeing where the company develops. Click the poll below to head over to vote!



Taking a look at our last poll, it seems a solid majority of you believe that metals and mining is the best bet to make a recovery from the COVID crash.



COVID-19 may be the king of investor attention for now, but every sector is seeing a rise in prominence. Has the small-cap tide turned back in the favor of cannabis for good, or will we see another change in the most-talked about companies? Check in on next week’s Buzz on the Bullboards weekly review to find out. For previous editions: click here.

Datametrex has a proven track record of sales in AI and Covid-19 testing. They are a cutting edge AI company trusted by clients including the United States Air Force and Lotte, a Korean conglomerate. And, because of established relationships in Korea, Datametrex was asked by the Canadian embassy in Korea to facilitate Covid-19 test sales for Canada, which they did and have to date had multiple test sales, please check their press releases. I'm not surprised they are listed as the #1 top viewe
