Our List of 3 Best Performing ASX Small Caps Stocks to Buy in September 2021
As the broad market may be set to bounce back, we have identified for you three small caps that might beneficiate your growth portfolio.
Magnis Energy Technologies (ASX: MNS)
Magnis intends to become one of the key players for the end-to-end supply chain in sourcing high-quality graphite. Graphite is a crucial ingredient for the development of batteries. As of today, Magnis has a world-class graphite deposit in Tanzania. This site has high distribution towards natural flake graphite in the Super Jumbo and Large flake categories. In fact, the world supply of such categories is very low, making Magnis’ project highly valuable.
In our opinion, Magnis could become the sixth-largest battery manufacturer in the world. The lithium-ion battery industry is a nascent industry with an addressable market of $100 billion by 2022. In a very competitive sector, Magnis has certain advantages over its peers. The company has unique intellectual properties in battery technology. They have patent protection in over thirty-five countries. Magnis is also run by a highly experienced and credible board of Directors, with Nobel Prize winner. In fact, the firm disposes of unrivalled capabilities and expertise in the lithium-ion battery, automotive innovation, and mining sectors. Moreover, Magnis is on the way to become a fully vertically integrated company. This provides the firm end to end supply chain management and control, and that is a serious edge over the competition. Currently, at around 30.5 cents per share, Magnis could exhibit massive upside potential with the commercial production for 1HFY22.
Pointerra (ASX: 3DP)
The Pointerra Ltd (ASX: 3DP) share price is under pressure since the beginning of this week. This came after a fantastic 46% breakout occurred on September 13.
At the time of writing, the 3D geospatial data technology company’s shares are down 6.8% to 48 cents. Despite a correction of almost 13% this week, we still like this stock. Actually, investors have been selling down the 3DP shares after the broad market weakness offset the release of a positive announcement.
The reason we like this stock is that the company has won a few contracts during September. This includes a $1.55 million contract with “Florida Power & Light” across four projects. In addition, the company has signed contracts with “Pacific Gas & Electric” and Gridvision worth approximately $250 thousand each.
The deal with “Florida Power & Light” includes a vegetation growth predictive analytics project. This will study and model the likely impact on powerline infrastructure of growth in vegetation adjacent to the powerline.
Furthermore, the contract with “Pacific Gas & Electric” is similar to the main “Florida Power & Light” contract. It is a vegetation management analytics project. Finally, 3DP’s contract with Gridvision is for mine powerline data capture and analytics campaigns for the power infrastructure network of a global tier-one miner’s Australian operations.
As of today, Pointerra is trading at 48 cents per share, just down 5.8% year-to-date. Thus, the recent correction is clearly an opportunity to capture the positive momentum.
Raiz Invest (ASX: RZI)
Raiz investors regain their composure after the recent shock announcement.
At market close, the investment platform provider’s shares are up 0.58 %, trading at $1.72. This follows a sharp share price fall on Monday following the broad market sell-off.
Despite RAIZ ending the day in green, the company’s share price remains -6% since last month. But that is nothing when we know that RAIZ has been up by an impressive 82% year-to-date.
So, what drove RAIZ share price down for a month? Well, that was coming from a surprise announcement sprung on shareholders entailed a “Section 249D Notice” from BBH-GL Nominees Pty Ltd. To set the context, BBH-GL is a company associated with Raiz’s founder and CEO, George Lucas.
Indeed, Mr Lucas holds 5.12% of total shares on the issue through his holding company. Because of this, Lucas can propose the removal of certain directors. According to the release, the proposal was to remove three out of the four other board members. Undoubtedly, such an unpredictable move has introduced volatility to the Raiz share price.
The company has stated that they will provide further information soon. Apart from this headline, the company is a rock-solid institution. RAIZ has over the last five years consistently improved its profit margin along with earnings growth. We believe, RAIZ share price pullback may just be a temporary event. Hence, a great opportunity to grab some shares of this terrific investment platform provider.
