US stock indexes continue to fluctuate near their all-time highs, as the economy continues to rebound amid the massive vaccination campaign.At the beginning of the week, data showed US manufacturing activity rose last month, driven by pent-up demand in a reopening economy that boosted orders. Nevertheless, unfinished work still remains because of shortages of raw materials and labor.All in all, stocks are increasing despite concerns that rising inflation would force the Fed to tighten the monetary policy.Peter Tuz of Chase Investment Counsel explained:
“People came back from a holiday weekend convinced that the economy is recovering nicely and that any inflation that we might be seeing in labor and other costs is temporary.”
Minneapolis Fed President Neel Kashkari and Fed Vice Chair for Supervision Randal Quarles on Tuesday reiterated the opinion that higher prices would be transitory.
NOW IS A GREAT TIME TO BUY OTC STOCKS
All in all, this is a great time to invest in OTC stocks, as the US and the global economy are gradually recovering from the devastating impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.Still, with blue chips, you can’t generate substantial returns given their massive market cap. One option would be to employ leverage, but it is risky, and there are few brokers and trading instruments that allow leverage on major stocks.The good news is that there are OTC stocks with robust fundamentals that are trading at bargain prices, and we’re here to bring them to light.Generally speaking, trading OTC stocks is much easier than getting exposure to blue chips. You don’t need a big account, and it’s technically extremely easy to make the first steps. All you need is a laptop and a brokerage account.Nevertheless, you should keep in mind that small-cap stocks are subject to enormous volatility like what we have witnessed in the February-April period.Also, remember these two important points when it comes to investing in small caps.
- Buy low and sell high.
- Don’t be afraid to book profits.
However, don’t rush to book profits too early.Finding the right balance is not that difficult if you’re not getting too greedy and stay disciplined.If you watch the Insider Financial YouTube channel, you can get a sense of the ideal time to book profits.

Now, when we say that we find momentum BEFORE it happens, we are investors looking to position our subscribers BEFORE the move happens.We recommend you to own a portfolio of small-cap stocks. For some that can be as many as 10 to 20 or more OTC stocks. Obviously, our recommendation to build a portfolio means that day trading is not an option for us. Day trading doesn’t suit our personality, and we don’t like the intraday moves markets make.

OTC Stock to Watch #1 AVVH
AVVAA World Health Care Products, Inc. is one of the hottest OTC stocks right now. Its share price rose over 300% in May and over 4,000% since the beginning of the year. Most of the gains came at the end of May, and strong momentum is still there at the time of writing. OTC stock to watch AVVHInvestors are excited about AVVH, which used to be a biotech firm and now has zero debt, as they expect a big merger to happen soon, with the community assuming that Gold Quest Group is about to acquire it in an effort to go public. Gold Quest Group, LLC is a residential, commercial, and heavy industrial direct lender and financial brokerage firm based in Houston, Texas. It has been around two decades and lends over $500 million per year in Texas and across the US, becoming one of the largest lenders in the state.While there is no official release about the merger, if Gold Quest acquires AVVH, its stock price would skyrocket to reflect the valuation of the resulting firm, probably exceeding the $1 mark. Interestingly, there is even a website created specifically for the merger, though we can’t know whether it’s official.What we know today is that the controlling stake of AVVH reached to Krisa Management LLC at the beginning of the year, with the latter becoming the majority owner of AVVH with 60% of its total voting rights. Eventually, Krisa Management sold its single share of Special 2021 Series A Preferred Stock, which represents 60% of voting rights in AVVH, to Omnis Capital Management, LLC – a specialist investment company probably meant to facilitate the transition to Gold Quest.Investors found out a link between Omnis Capital and Gold Quest. Specifically, Miguel Sanchez, President of Gold Quest, is also a key figure in Omnis Capital as per the SEC filing, with the investor community assuming that he created Omnis to conduct major deals.https://twitter.com/BinDaddys/status/1399030811643432963To conclude, some big news is coming, and if or when AVVH’s merger with Gold Quest becomes official, be ready for a massive surge in its share price.

OTC Stock to Watch #4 SBFM
Another Canadian firm with great potential is Sunshine Biopharma, Inc. The stock price rose over 60% in May and is currently trading at 20 cents. SBFM started 2021 trading at just under $.02 a share. OTC stock to watch SBFMAt the beginning of the year, Sunshine Biopharma’s share price started to ascend after it filed for patent applications for a new COVID-19 treatment. Previously, RB Capital Partners Inc. agreed to invest $2 million in the coronavirus treatment, with the last tranche being paid in January. In April, RB Capital Partners injected an additional $500,000 in SBFM.Besides the COVID treatment, SBFM has also filed a patent application for a cancer drug. At the end of May, the company revealed the mechanism of action of its anticancer drug called Adva-27a. The drug has two activities: evasion of P-glycoprotein and inhibition of Topoisomerase II. P-glycoprotein is the most common protein responsible for multidrug resistance in over 50% of all cancer types. By escaping the efflux pump of P-glycoprotein, SBFM’s drug is capable of accumulating inside cancer cells and destroy them by inhibiting Topoisomerase II, a DNA unwinding enzyme preferentially used by cancer cells to multiply.Sunshine Biopharma CEO Dr. Steve Slilaty said:
“The implications of this development are vast in the context of cancer therapy as a whole. We are excited to soon have a new drug available for cancer sufferers around the world.”
We think SBFM’s anticancer drug is a big deal, which makes the OTC a good buy with a long-term target.
