The US consumer sentiment might have collapsed to the lowest level in a decade, but the overall picture of the economic recovery looks promising. It’s true: the preliminary sentiment index declined from 81.2 in July to 70.2 in August, which is worse than all estimates. Americans are more concerned about the economic prospects, inflation, and the recent surge in coronavirus cases.
Richard Curtin, director of the survey prepared by the University of Michigan, said in the report:
“Consumers have correctly reasoned that the economy’s performance will be diminished over the next several months, but the extraordinary surge in negative economic assessments also reflects an emotional response, mainly from dashed hopes that the pandemic would soon end.”
The survey respondents are still concerned about inflation, although the Federal Reserve said that it was a temporary issue. Consumer prices have increased by the most in years, while recent data showed that home prices surged by the most on record in the three months to June. The average price of an existing single-family home jumped 23% from a year earlier to an all-time high of $357,900.
The inflation is driven by Fed’s quantitative easing and the stimulus measures implemented by the government. However, the same circumstances are driving the stock market rally, and this is a great time to invest in OTC stocks and secure great returns.
OTC MARKETS THE PLACE TO BE

We also recommend you own a portfolio of OTC stocks. For some, that can be as many as 10 to 20 or more OTC stocks. This provides diversification and allows one to manage the market’s moods much easier. It also helps to own shares in the following 4 trending OTC stocks gaining momentum.
In this article, we look at 4 OTC stocks to watch that will greatly reward patient investors. They are Alpine 4 Holdings, Inc (OTCQB: ALPP), Business Warrior Corporation (OTCPK: BZWR), Good Gaming, Inc (OTCPK: GMER), and Viper Networks Inc (OTCPK: VPER).
OTC Stocks to Watch #1 ALPP
Alpine 4 Holdings, Inc is a large company by OTC Markets standards. In fact, it is already penny stock exempt and is working to reach on NASDAQ. ALPP has been a tremendous success for our subscribers.
We first paid attention to this stock in February last year, when the share price fluctuated below ten cents. Now you should pay $3.060 per share, but there is still room for growth, as the stock has been in correction mode since February this year when it hit the year-to-date high at over $8.50.
The $440 million company owns multiple small market businesses and acquires businesses that fit into its disruptive DSF business model of Drivers, Stabilizers, and Facilitators. The focus of the company is on how the adaptation of new technologies in brick-and-mortar businesses can drive innovation. This unique perspective has culminated in the development of its blockchain-enabled enterprise business operating system called SPECTRUMebos.
Some of the ALPP subsidiaries are Impossible Aerospace Corp, A4 Manufacturing Inc, Horizon Well Testing LLC, American Precision Fabrications, Morris Sheet Metal, Deluxe Sheet Metal, and A4 Defense Systems. These businesses produce anything from electric aircraft parts and equipment to surveillance systems to the US military, and they deliver anything from sheet metals to business services.
ALPP has been bullish in anticipation of its financial report for the second quarter.
🚨 $ALPP 🚨 $2.70
Alpine is becoming a monster and the fundamentals are the best out there at such a discounted price.
My largest position, I added more today as it’s only a matter of time before it takes off!

Last month, the company said that it expected sales of $14 million, which is revenue growth of about 54% compared to the same period in 2020. The company also anticipates that Q3 revenue will grow to over $18 million.
Alpine 4 CEO Kent B. Wilson said:
“This quarter’s success was led by A4 Manufacturing and its subsidiaries Quality Circuit Assembly, Inc. and Alternative Labs, LLC. Both companies are firing on all cylinders, and further growth is expected for Q3 and Q4 due to the robust demand from their customer base. It is noteworthy, that Alternative Labs, LLC. and Thermal Dynamics International Inc., were acquired one month after the quarter had begun. It is for this reason that one month of their revenue will not be reflected in Alpine’s Q2.”
We think $3 is still a bargain price for a company with a healthy balance sheet and great prospects.
OTC Stocks to Watch #2 BZWR
Business Warrior Corporation has increased by about 200% since the beginning of the month, currently trading at $0.2950, which is a record high.
BZWR is providing marketing and brand enhancement solutions to small businesses to help them get more customers. Business Warrior’s proprietary software takes a holistic view of a business’s online reputation, listings, website search results, and social media. It uses predictive algorithms to recommend the most important actions needed to drive new customers, positively impact daily operations and improve profitability. Currently, it provides Scout and Pro packages, which cost $49 and $299 per month, respectively.
Investors are excited about BZWR’s record-breaking revenue figures reported last month, with growth accelerating by 897% compared to the previous quarter. In May alone, the company reported over $1 million in gross revenue, which demonstrates the rapid expansion of BZWR.
The positive quarterly results enabled a 33% reduction in total liabilities and no leftover convertible notes. Business Warrior CEO Rhett Doolittle said the business would become profitable this year, which is almost two years ahead of schedule.
BZWR will use the better-than-expected cash flow to develop and launch its version 3.0 of the Business Warrior software, update the corporate website, and work with banks to come up with a new solution that offers small businesses access to growth capital.

Celebration time! 🎉🥳

The company is growing rapidly, and it has a healthy balance sheet. The momentum is accelerating without much resistance, so make sure to get exposure to this OTC stock as soon as possible.
OTC Stocks to Watch #3 GMER
Good Gaming, Inc has been surging lately after finding strong support on Wednesday at $0.20. Since then, the Pink Current stock has doubled to $0.432. It touched the YTD high at over $0.60 in mid-July, following a bull run that started at the end of May at less than $0.03.
We shared our bullish sentiment on GMER at the end of May, well before it hit the highest level in five years.
GMER operates a leading tournament gaming platform and online destination targeting the over 250 million amateur eSports players worldwide that want to compete at the high school or college level. It started more than a decade ago as a collaborative space for gamers to share their knowledge, becoming one of the leaders in hosting Hearthstone tournaments. In 2016, the company expanded its reach by establishing multiple Minecraft servers with some of the most popular versions of Prison and Skyblock.
Earlier this year, GMER developed its NFT DeFi crypto game called MicroBuddies, which has been the main driver behind the stock rally. Non-fungible tokens (NFTs) have surged in popularity in the first four months of the year, with digital artists and gamers leveraging these blockchain-based tokens for a variety of use cases.
MicroBuddies lets players adopt “lovable, self-replicating microbes” that passively produce the company’s own cryptocurrency called GOO. The cryptocurrency can eventually be used to create new MicroBuddies. “Well-bred” MicroBuddies that have a high rate of GOO production can generate profits for players. At a later date, GOO will trade on third-party cryptocurrency exchanges. The game is going live.
The first 2,500 MicroBuddies, collectively known as generation 0, are expected to be the rarest and most scarce set of MicroBuddies and what the rest of the game will propagate from. Thus, the increased activity as the game launches is reflected in the share price.
On August 13, GMER said that it had partnered with Blockchain App Factory – a popular NFT, crypto, and blockchain firm – to develop strategic initiatives for the marketing and brand development of the MicroBuddies game, which is about to launch in the third quarter.
What we like about GMER is that it leverages NFTs, which have been the fastest-growing sector at the beginning of the year. MicroBuddies’ marketing campaign will continue to drive the share price, so be ready for another rally.
OTC Stocks to Watch #4 VPER
Viper Networks Inc has been bullish at the beginning of August, gaining over 34% during the five days alone to trade at $0.012. However, the Pink Current stock has been correcting since mid-February, when it hit a record high at six cents.
Previously, the company has been dormant for years, but now it’s growing its business thanks to some fresh deals and potential upcoming partnerships and orders.
Viper Networks provides a wide range of intelligent LED lighting solutions that can easily be deployed into metropolitan areas, parking lots, and warehousing facilities. It offers LED street lights, and parking lot and indoor lighting products, as well as intelligent lighting solutions with camera, sensor, and wireless technologies.
The recent price increase was preceded by the news that Viper reached a final 20-year agreement with a consortium of 21 cities throughout suburban Chicago, Illinois, to build and operate a variety of smart city projects. The cities are looking to take advantage of the latest $1.2 trillion Infrastructure Bill of the Biden Administration and Viper Networks is in a good position to partner with the latest technology and services firms to launch Smart City Projects nationwide.
As US cities begin to transform their infrastructure, Viper proposes municipalities to efficiently control and adjust street lighting, monitor activities, provide state-of-art communication, enhance security and manage traffic. Viper is making it easier to buy with its latest infrastructure-as-a-service combined with a revenue-share model, allowing cities to quickly deploy infrastructure without heavy upfront capital. In exchange, cities share the upside of new revenues with Viper, such as advertising or artificial intelligence-based traffic violations, generating a long-term mutually beneficial relationship. This is a massive stream of revenue that will be reflected in VPER’s share price.
The project is starting in the cities of Palos Hills and Justice, and will target the rollout of about 2,000 smart poles by the second half of 2022. This will drive annualized revenue of $10 million before adding the revenue share.
VPER CEO and President Farid Shouekani commented:
“We began this unique Public Private relationship with Illinois suburban cities over three years ago with a Memorandum of Understanding. Today, our company’s further enhanced technology coupled with the country’s historical infrastructure bill passage are truly coming together for the greater good.”
This is really a big deal for VPER. This is one of those OTC stocks offering working products, having a great balance sheet, benefiting from increasing demand, and being able to secure revenue for the coming years. This is a great OTC stock to hold in your portfolio.
THE FINAL NOTE
All of the 4 OTC stocks discussed today are on the rise and are good stocks to hold. Nevertheless, our best advice is to be patient and enter the market during corrections. Buying dips and selling rips as swing trades remains the best strategy in the penny stock market. Still, whenever an OTC stock is in the middle of a bull run, we recommend our subscribers to book profits.
It’s very important to eye OTC stocks that have room for growth and have yet to make their explosive move. There are plenty of opportunities, and we take our time to monitor hundreds of penny stocks to buy each week, trying to find the best alerts for our subscribers.
Remember, all you need is one or two OTC stocks to succeed in order to crush the market averages.
As always, good luck to all (except the shorts)!
