There can be little doubt that graphene is going to be the new stock market boom industry. With more records in the world of physical sciences, more versatility than you can shake a stick at, and currently the topic of more academic research papers than any other topic, graphene is certainly a material with a whole lot of promise. What does this mean for savvy investors and early adopters? There is certainly some money to be made from graphene stocks.
However, investors usually want to know more than simply whether something is a good idea, they want to know about the commercial prospects, the profitability and the rate of return. Well, for sure, they should put any concerns they have to one side because when talking about graphene stocks and graphene in general, the consensus seems to be that few investments will generate the kind of returns projected for the graphene industry. Recent reports from a couple of specialist market analyst companies suggest the value of graphene will rise consistently by over 40% before the start of the next decade. That’s a growth from a base line of $9 million in 2012 to a phenomenal $126 million in 2020. Now, who doesn’t want a slice of that pie? I know I do.
So, which are the companies to watch in the world of graphene? Which are the ones deserving of greater research and a few hours of due diligence? Here is a list of 4 graphene stocks to watch:
No. #1 – Grafoid.
This company is yet to go public but if the rumours on some of the discussion boards are true then Grafoid, a medium sized Canadian graphene producer part owned by a major mining company, will soon be floated on the stock exchange. It’s got strong backing, a unique method of envronmentally friendly production and a very rosy future. With firm partnership deals in place already this is the best of the ones to watch.
No. #2 – CVD Equipment Corporation.
This company produces the equipment required for the chemical vapour deposition production of graphene and it seems to be doing very well indeed. All the charts show favourable growth for this company and, as the first publicly traded company to operate within the industry, it is well placed to continue its growth. The company have just finished building a new production facility which they will be moving into in the next month, so you can expect the production side to ramp up pretty soon.
No. #3 – Samsung.
OK. This company is more know for its electronics and smart phones than for anything else, however, the South Korean firm has also been researching heavily into the electrical properties of graphene and have announced several products that they are currently working on. Super durable smartphone screens and laptop computers that can be rolled up, are just some of the possibilities with this super strong, super flexible, and incredibly conductive material.
No. #4 – Oxford Instruments.
You only need to look at the growth of this company to know that it is well positioned to profit from the nanotechnology and graphene boom. The share price has already increased an incredible amount and currently shows no sign of reversing. Definitely one to consider, but it is possible that most of the share price growth has happened already.
So, that’s four graphene companies to keep an eye on. If you haven’t heard of graphene until now then remember where you read these tips and visit again soon.
I would also recommend a visit to these sites as they seem to be very much on the ball when it comes to graphene investment, research and development.
