Investors are always on the lookout for potential investment opportunities in the stock market, but with so many options to choose from, narrowing it down can be difficult. Creating a watchlist can help investors stay on top of potential market movers. These stocks have been picked based on recent trading activity, news developments, upcoming events, and other factors that make these stocks stand out. These stocks offer a range of investment opportunities for investors with different preferences and risk appetites.
Let's take a look at four stocks for your watchlist this Friday.
Epazz, Inc. (OTC: EPAZ)
Over the last month, EPAZ has seen a hefty increase in trading activity. This uptick follows a string of updates from the company, detailing their successes with their spinoff UAV company, Zenadrone.
On March 1, EPAZ announced that the US Air Force had invited ZenaDrone to showcase the ZenaDrone 1000 at an air base in California on March 16 and 17, kicking off a month of wins for Zenadrone. The meeting at the airbase led to multiple scheduled flight demonstrations and presentations at multiple air bases.
While Zenadrone may be a younger player in the drone sector, the technology is certainly there. On March 7th, Zenadrone announced that it had received the official utility patent on its AI-predictive Drone Smart Charging Pad. While other charging pads on the market are priced between $4,000 and $15,000 for drones weighing less than 55 pounds, the ZenaDrone charging pad is designed to charge their flagship product, the ZenaDrone 1000, which weighs over 250 pounds, at a price point of under $15,000. This represents a significant cost advantage for drone operators who require high-capacity charging solutions, putting them in a key position to take advantage of the growing drone sector.
Just earlier this week, the company announced that they received a letter of support from the U.S. Air Force to use ZenaDrone 1000 for drone cargo delivery, which includes blood transport. ZenaDrone is invited to work with the U.S. Air Force at an overseas base to test the ZenaDrone 1000 platform under battlefield conditions.
ZenaDrone is now qualified to submit a Phase II SBIR grant for external funding of this cargo delivery solution. Phase II SBIR grants are generally up to $1.2 million for a two-year period and are a non dilutive source of funding. This will be the second direct to Phase II project for ZenaDrone 1000.
Overall, EPAZ has been making impressive strides with their spinoff company, Zenadrone, and the drone industry is taking notice. As a result, investors should keep an eye on EPAZ as the company continues to develop and implement innovative solutions that have the potential to shape the future of drone technology.
Gatos Silver (NYSE:GATO)
On Thursday, GATO closed at a 52-week high of $6.79, marking a significant increase of 19.3% for the day. This surge in price followed the completion of three-quarters of its financial statement filings, bringing the company up to date on its filing requirements in both Canada and the United States.
The filings were initially delayed due to errors found in the 2020 Technical Report that resulted in a reduction of metal content in the company's mineral reserves. Gatos reported a net income of $18.3 million for the nine months ending September 30, 2022, compared to a net loss of $3.1 million for the same period in the previous year, due to increased revenues from the Cerro Los Gatos joint venture.
Gatos Silver is a Mexican company that explores, develops, and produces silver and zinc-rich minerals. Gatos Silver is a major player in the mining industry, dominating in the exploration, development, and production of silver and zinc in southern Chihuahua State, Mexico. Their discovery of a new mineral-rich district has put them on the map, and with over 103,000 hectares of untapped potential in the LGJV, the future looks bright for this company.
American Battery Technology Company (OTCQX: ABML)
On Thursday, ABML announced that they entered into an agreement to sell 14,285,715 shares of common stock, resulting in expected gross proceeds of $10 million. The offering is set to close on March 31, 2023, and H.C. Wainwright & Co. is the exclusive placement agent.
As the electric vehicle market continues to surge, American Battery Technology Company is revolutionizing the industry with its domestically sourced critical battery metals. ABMLs ESG principles prioritize ethical and sustainable sourcing, creating a closed-loop circular economy for battery metals.
With divisions in lithium-ion battery recycling, primary metal extraction technologies, and primary resource development, the company is a key player in the growing electric vehicle, electrical grid storage, and consumer electronics industries. Get ready for a low-cost, low-environmental impact, domestically sourced supply of battery metals, early adopters may want to put this stock on their watchlist.
Bed Bath & Beyond (NASDAQ: BBBY)
Bed Bath & Beyond (BBBY) saw its stock drop by 26% and close at 59 cents following the company's announcement that it plans to sell up to $300 million in shares. The struggling retailer stated in its filing that if the equity offering is not fully completed, it may need to file for bankruptcy protection.
While this certainly is not positive news for the retailer, there is still the chance that BBBY may be a potential bounce play. While the stock was down hard on Thursday, it may be worth watching for a bounce.
Bed Bath & Beyond's new investor, B. Riley Securities, is making its payments weekly rather than in the monthly installments Hudson Bay Capital had paid. This will bring in Bed Bath and Beyond's capital quicker in an effort to restock inventory.
Bed Bath & Beyond,a popular meme stock over the last few years, is thinking about a reverse stock split of either 1-for-5 or 1-for-10. This move would increase the value of the shares and possibly attract more interest from retail investors.
