GEO Investing

I love pitching stocks to my friends, family, colleagues and the GEO community.  It’s that one habit I just can’t break.

There are lots of reasons you might choose to join a stock research platform like Geoinvesting. However, when it comes down to it, in the end, you are probably looking for interesting ideas on stocks that you might want to add to your portfolio or perform research on. 

So, that’s why in this installment of the Monthly GeoWire, we are reiterating a new addition to our website – The Pitch Lobby, a concept we recently sent you some information about on September 9, 2023.

We don’t want to focus on short term returns, but it’s nice to see that the stocks included in the Pitch Lobby are performing nicely. Within less than 2 months, the average return was over 9% at the time of our email, while the NASDAQ and Russell 2000 small-cap indexes were down 2.4% and 4.1%, respectively. The peak average return was 16.92%.

This dedicated page serves as a central repository and summaries for our recent and future stock pitches, encompassing a range of ideas we think are timely. Most of the pitches on this page are from the GeoTeam about stocks in our research pipeline or in our Model Portfolios, but once in while we will include compelling ideas sourced from diverse channels, including contributions from our investor network.

The primary objective of this page is to provide you with a snapshot of the diverse set of companies we cover.

Make sure to visit the page a few times a month to stay current with our timely ideas.

pitch lobby profiles – July 14, 2023 to August 26, 2023

Recession Resistant Microcap At The Heart Of Large Power Grid Efficiency Initiative, New Recurring Revenue Streams In Sight

  • Asset Class: Equity
  • Price & Revenue: Price under $1.00; Revenue under $15 million.
  • Expected Return: 100%
  • Industry: Wireless Remote Monitoring
  • Catalyst: Two new growth initiatives (additional recurring revenue); Insider buying; Investor awareness of growth initiatives; Building a moat; Competitive pressure abatement.

The stock pitch discusses a recession-resistant microcap company that plays a vital role in enhancing power grid efficiency within the United States infrastructure. The company’s services allow businesses to monitor operations and address issues with reduced staff. The company is taking two new growth initiatives – One that focuses on optimizing gas company operations through mission-critical services, where the company has a unique advantage, and the second involves a partnership to strategically manage electricity usage for utilities. These initiatives are expected to contribute to revenue starting in 2024.

Beyond the initiatives, the company has also seen the lessening of competitive pressures that previously hindered its growth. The CEO’s stock purchases at lower prices add to the company’s appeal. The company’s strategies position it as an innovative player disrupting traditional energy practices and expanding its market reach with new recurring revenue streams.

An AI Stock No One’s Heard Of

  • Asset Class: Equity
  • Price & Revenue: under $15; Greater than $100M
  • Expected Return: 40.3
  • Industry: AI / Information Technology & Software Data Analytics
  • Catalyst: Revenue and earnings per share (EPS) growth; Favorable industry trends; Strong patent position

With the growing impact of AI in business, this company leverages AI for digital identity and fraud prevention solutions.  The company’s unique approach involves an AI-infused cloud software platform that utilizes AI and machine learning to enhance the authentication of identity documents using camera-equipped devices. This approach sets the company apart in its industry.

Backing the pitch is a seasoned research contributor’s prediction of a potential 52.4% increase in the stock’s value. The company’s strong financial track record includes consistent revenue growth from $9 million to $140 million since 2001. A further anticipated 15% growth over the next three years is projected, accompanied by a streak of nine consecutive quarters of expected earnings growth.  

Moreover, the company capitalizes on favorable industry trends related to identity theft, with its solutions widely adopted by thousands of institutions.

Will New Addition To Run To One Model Portfolio “Quench” Our Thirst For Supersized Returns?

  • Asset Class: Equity
  • Price: Under $1
  • Expected Return: Potential 5x return purely based on competitors’ Price To Sales ratios
  • Industry: Beverage
  • Catalyst: Strong CEO Background; New Product Launch; Accelerated Revenue Growth; Investors will associate the stock with stocks of other highflying beverage companies

A non-alcoholic beverage manufacturer recently added to our “Run To One” Model Portfolio, which focuses on stocks under $1 per share that exhibit growth potential. The CEO’s industry expertise, increasing annual revenues, and the launch of a drink line targeting a sizable market segment contribute to the company’s appeal. The company’s improved capital structure, profitability at a small revenue base, and commitment to shareholder value through stock buybacks add to its attractiveness.

The CEO’s reputable track record and an established distribution network enhance the company’s prospects. Key reasons for favoring the stock include its presence in 10,000 locations, the recent launch of a beverage product targeting a larger market, and the first mover advantage in an underserved high-growth industry segment. The company’s profitability at a small revenue base further supports its potential.

At the time of our write up the stock was trading at a P/S ratio of 2x compared to its competitors’ 10x, and it has around $1 million in net operating losses to offset future taxes.

While acknowledging the potential for significant rise in the stock’s value, considering momentum in its new beverage product, a few caveats include the stock’s lack of liquidity, the unproven nature of the new product line, and the need for distribution expansion.

Microcap Fund Manager Reveals His Top Pick

  • Asset Class: Equity
  • Price: Under $25
  • Expected Return: 50%
  • Industry: Staffing Solutions
  • Catalyst: Strong order backlog; Management repurchase of shares

A microcap fund manager with a strong track record and 7 years of experience revealed his top pick, which aligns with my prior research endeavors. The stock, previously covered by my team on GeoInvesting, had a significant rise in 2022 followed by a pullback due to market conditions. The company operates in the staffing solutions sector for commercial and government segments in North America.

Key points from the bullish pitch include:

  • Management’s successful share repurchases (20% since 2020).
  • Strategic expansion into stable sectors like clean energy and healthcare.
  • Robust fundamentals and cash flow, supported by a solid order backlog.
  • Anticipated earnings growth in the coming period.
  • A potential 50% stock price increase based on a conservative P/E valuation of 15x.

Riding High On A 166% Move In AEHR Year To Date, GeoInvesting Subscriber Gives Us His Next Pick

  • Asset Class: Equity
  • Price & Revenue: Under $1
  • Industry: Remote Software Solutions
  • Catalysts: Sparse competition; Artificial Intelligence; Locked in contract revenue – All to contribute to various facets of growth. 

A GeoInvesting subscriber, known for his successful pick of Aehr Test Systems (NASDAQ:AEHR) with a 166% gain year-to-date, has presented a new exclusive idea. The company focuses on providing remote software solutions to the energy industry, aiding in timely infrastructure maintenance to prevent costly disasters and downtime. This stock is seen as a candidate for the RunToOne Model Portfolio (R21) due to its nearing inflection point and potential 300% undervaluation.

Key points shared with GeoInvesting subscribers include:

  • The stock’s low visibility due to undiscovered bullish catalysts.
  • The company has a unique and irreplaceable service, creating a competitive advantage.
  • Predictable revenue growth through expanding contract values.
  • The software employs AI capabilities from a rich dataset spanning years.
  • Anticipated 50% yearly growth for several years.
  • Despite being priced under $1.00, the stock is expected to exceed $1.00 within the year.
