Micro-Cap Investing Reaches New Highs; Blazing a Trail in Surging Markets Like Mobile Gaming, Energy, and Life Sciences
SALT LAKE CITY, UT / CRWEPRESSRELEASE / August 20, 2015 /Micro-Cap investors who are trading in markets that see huge fluctuations need look no further than the one industry that has demonstrated non-stop growth throughout the last several years, expected to set record highs for revenue in 2015. Ten years ago, mobile game stocks would not even have registered as a blip on most investors’ radar, but in 2008, digital games generated sales of about $3 billion, and by 2013 they experienced a 350% increase to $14 billion in revenue. Some current estimates indicate that the general games market could crack $100 billion in 2017, with mobile games accounting for the lion’s share of that figure.
One appealing aspect of this industry for up-and-coming mobile gaming companies is the emphasis on viral, word-of-mouth marketing, and an unprecedented willingness of the consumer to try new products. Although a handful of mobile gaming giants exist, there are also a relatively large number of smaller-scale success stories, with a handful of different companies generating enough revenue per year for Wall Street to take notice.
One rising company that should soon be noticed by industry giants in mobile gaming is Tapinator, Inc (TAPM). With a multitude of new games constantly on the horizon and some, like Dinosaur Revenge 3D, cracking the Google Play Top App charts, Tapinator’s portfolio reached over 100 million users at the end of last month. Unlike many other mobile gaming companies, Tapinator, which trades at $ .20 with a market cap of 11M, creates quality content with high replay value. This summer alone, the company will release improved versions of their existing games (Video Poker VIP 2.0) to satisfy its customers and create brand loyalty, while also unleashing a steady stream of new content (Rotatio 1.0) in order to increase its consumer base.
Tapinatorwas even featured recently on Fox Business TV. The segment highlighted the company’s partnership with Hyperpower Games Group and the Discovery Channel, a pairing that resulted in Tapinator’s release of Deadliest Catch: Seas of Fury, which has proved to be a hit for the company.
In addition to TAPM, another player in the sector is Glu Mobile (GLUU), which is trending toward a substantial comeback. Trading at 4.71 with an average volume of 2.4M, the company reported over 260 million in revenue over the last year, while research and development is up 60% from two years ago, indicating the company should be entering plenty of new content into the fray in the near future.
Though some have predicted a future decline of King Digital Entertainment (KING), a company viewed by many to be a standard bearer in the industry thanks to its Candy Crushseries of games, the company still posted 3 of the top 10 highest grossing games for iOS and Android over the last quarter, with adjusted earnings landing ahead of market expectations. Trading at 13.69 per share with a 4.21B market cap, KING still stands as a benchmark in mobile gaming; one that, given current market trends, appears increasingly within reach for young, maverick companies like TAPM.
Micro-Cap has continued to do well across multiple markets, however, with stocks like American Resources Exploration Inc. (AREN), a natural gas company that trades at .89 per share, seeing steady gains over the last several weeks. Anavex Life Sciences (AVXL) is another example. Trading at 1.64, AREN is just beginning to take its biggest steps, with several proprietary biopharmaceuticals in the works.
All of the above companies share the common trait of potentially groundbreaking intellectual property. NuGene International, Inc. (NUGN), which trades at 2.19 per share, fits in with that characterization. Specializing in regenerative biocellular growth for cosmetic purposes, NUGN’s product line functions as its foundation, and investors can take a look at the company’s newest financial outlook, which was just published this week.
Micro-Cap trading, which could bear increased success for investors across some of the hot markets mentioned above, such as mobile gaming, does not appear to be going away any time soon. A stock such as TAPM not only exhibits enough of a steady history to give investors a vote of confidence, but such a stock could also turn out to be a true gem with immeasurable upside potential.
