2020 – The Good, The Not-So-Good And The Very Very Good

2020 ended up being a surprisingly good year for investors, including my subscribers.

I was able to find stocks that went up in all our key sectors

  1. Gold,
  2. COVID stay-at-home
  3. EV battery technology
  4. ESG

through the full year.

Normally I’m looking at a stock that’s in one of the major memes of the year–so it has liquidity, and there’s lots to write about. But the secret of course is separating the promoters from the businessmen & women who have something real.

I want to say up-front, I had a few bad trades this year. NOBODY traded HYRECAR (HYRE) worse than me. It traded lock-in-step with UBER, except for its quarterlies which showed profitability moving farther and farther away. I couldn’t take that, but congrats to CEO Joe Furnari. And I sold some high quality stocks way too early out of the COVID bottom that I wish I still owned.

But for the most part, 2020 was an exceptional year for subscribers.

In January this year, subscribers saw companies like Nano One (TSX-V:NNO), an EV battery play, and Greenlane Renewables (TSX-V:GRN-), a renewable natural gas stock (we used to call this garbage gas in the 1990s) triple in stock price as the ESG meme was in full swing. I wrote about Nano One just recently here.

Then in February and March, I found the first 10-bagger of the year–Capricor Therapeutics (CAPR). I bought it at $1.11. It was a micro-cap biotech with a ZERO Enterprise Value (trading at cash) with upcoming catalysts in the same space that took Sarepta from $10 – $160 in few months (a couple years ago). The stock went up 10X to over $11 by the end of April–in just two months–and we took profits all the way up.

Then in early April, a mining junior named Fosterville South (TSX-V:FSX) came public. Our subscribers participated in the 40 cent IPO, and the stock opened above 90 cents. Located directly south and on trend with the most profitable mine in the world–Kirkland Lake (KL).

Anything not related to 2020 has to be better. Worst year ever! At least in my lifetime.
