Smart investors know that if you want to make the big money off a small account, the place to be is the OTC Markets, especially since blue chips are struggling these days. There are many good OTC stocks that can boost your portfolio’s value in the long term irrespective of what happens in higher-tier markets. For investors, we preach the key to trading penny stocks is finding momentum BEFORE it happens and ahead of the crowd.
We alert our subscribers with our best ideas before our regular readers. This is the value of having a subscription to Insider Financial, which you can sign up for here.
If you watch the Insider Financial YouTube channel, you can get a sense of the ideal time to book profits. We warned our subscribers not to get greedy or get caught up in the diamond hands/paper hands BS.
We also recommend you own a portfolio of penny 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.
In this article, we look at 4 OTC stocks that can boost your portfolio. The OTC stocks are Aiadvertising Inc (OTCPK: AIAD), Liquidmetal Technologies, Inc (OTCQB: LQMT), Solar Integrated Roofing Corp (OTCPK: SIRC), and Unique Logistics International, Inc (OTCPK: UNQL).
OTC STOCKS #1 AIAD
Aiadvertising Inc has had a great month, gaining 30% so far. More importantly, the uptrend doesn’t seem to lose momentum, with the OTC stock ready to challenge the resistance that separates it from the highest level since April 2021. Today you can buy AIAD for $0.026 per share, up almost 15% on Tuesday alone. This is the highest level since the end of October, and AIAD has to break above the fine penny mark in order to update the multi-month peak.
Investors turned their attention to AIAD as it’s associated with Trump-related stocks that include DWAC, a NASDAQ-listed SPAC that exploded at the end of last year.
On Twitter, AIAD is promoting itself as an AI as a Service tech company that harnesses the power of artificial intelligence to eliminate waste and drive the performance of digital advertising. AIAD built a proprietary advertising software platform powered by machine learning and AI. It enables marketers to leverage AI to develop, manage, and implement digital advertising campaigns more effectively. Services of the platform include the automation of persona development, the ability to dynamically render and predict creative assets, automating look-a-like audience curation, omnichannel activation, and real-time performance management.
Earlier this month, AIAD presented its first client, a US-based company that is part of the Caterpillar and Hyster Americas dealer networks.
We are excited to welcome CTE as our newest client. As a part of the @CaterpillarInc & @hysteramericas dealer networks, CTE operates 28 locations throughout the southeast U.S. through their @CarolinaCat and @LiftOne_MH businesses. We look forward to helping them grow! pic.twitter.com/gjyRByXp10

So what does AIAD has to do with the Trump ecosystem?
While it’s a marketing-oriented company that seems to be neutral on political matters, Brad Parscale, who is largely known for his work on the media side of former President Donald Trump’s campaigns and who has over 700k followers on Twitter, is actively praising the company, mentioning it not only in multiple tweets but also on his profile description. Part of AIAD’s operations were Parscale’s former company, so he has a vested interest in making AIAD a success.

With or without the endorsement from conservative elements, AIAD seems to be the real deal. With a market cap of $24 million and a decent share structure, the company is poised to grow fast as it’s only starting its journey. It has been adding people and is finally securing deals with clients. This can grow really quickly.
OTC STOCKS #2 LQMT
Liquidmetal Technologies, Inc has also gained over 30% over the month, but it’s much larger than AIAD and is an OTCQB member, making the bullish move even more relevant. The $112 million company has increased by 32% during the last five days alone, trading at over $0.12.
The company is promoting itself as the leading developer of bulk alloys and composites that utilize the performance advantages offered by amorphous alloy technology. Amorphous alloys are unique materials that are distinguished by their ability to retain a random structure when they solidify, in contrast to the crystalline atomic structure that forms in ordinary metals and alloys. LQMT is the first company to produce amorphous alloys in commercially viable bulk form, enabling significant improvements in products across a wide array of industries, including non-consumer electronic devices, medical products, automotive components, and sports and leisure goods.

Recently, two announcements pushed the share price higher, triggering a potential bullish trend. Last week, LQMT, through its majority-owned subsidiary, Liquidmetal Golf, has entered into a sub-license agreement with Amorphous Technologies Japan Inc. (ATJ), a newly formed Japanese entity established by Twins Corporation, a company operating for over 20 years in the sporting goods industry with direct access to over 3,000 global retail establishments. ATJ will focus its efforts on developing golf clubs utilizing LQMT’s technology and selling them across the globe, beginning in Japan, where golf is one of the most popular sports in the country.
Meanwhile, LQMT, which is the foremost supplier of applications for zirconium-based bulk metallic glasses (BMGs), entered into a manufacturing supply agreement with Dongguan Yihao Metal Technology Co., Ltd, the world’s largest manufacturer of BMG products.
LQMT CEO Tony Chung said:
“While Liquidmetal has already been working with Yihao as its contract manufacturer over the years, this supply agreement now solidifies our long-term relationship.”
LQMT is one of those stocks that can grow slowly without much hype. The company has a great share structure, with the number of authorized shares almost maxed out and with less than 50% in the float.
OTC STOCKS #3 SIRC
Solar Integrated Roofing Corp is yet another OTC stock that has increased by over 30% during the last month. It’s bigger than LQMT in terms of market cap, but it still goes with the Pink Current symbol as of today. At the end of last year, it applied to uplist to OTCQB, which would be the right place for now. SIRC is now trading at $0.46 after peaking last week near 60 cents, the highest since mid-October.
SIRC hit the $3 mark in mid-February amid the massive wave of bullish stocks, but it eventually has corrected. The first time we reported on SIRC was in December 2020, when the stock was trading below $0.30. It eventually rose by about ten times in less than two months, which highlights the perfect timing of our analysis.
While we don’t expect SIRC to explode 1,000% this time, it has strong fundamentals and seems to be undervalued.
As the name suggests, SIRC is an integrated solar and roofing installation company specializing in commercial and residential properties with a focus on acquisitions of like companies to build a footprint nationally.
Last week, SIRC presented its ambitious plan for 2022, signing a series of binding Letters of Intent (LOIs) to buy seven companies, adding an anticipated $78 million in incremental annual revenue.
Solar Integrated Roofing Corp. Announces Seven Planned Acquisitions Totaling Over $78 Million in Projected Annual Revenue, Positioning Company for Significant Growth in 2022
— Solar Integrated Roofing Corp (@SIRCStock) January 18, 2022
Here are the seven firms to be integrated into the SIRC ecosystem:
- Storm Ventures Group(SVG), a respected industry contractor consulting firm;
- Standard Eco, a licensed engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) solar provider with a presence spanning five states and over 4,000 solar installations;
- Eco Management, a licensed EPC solar provider with a presence spanning four states and over 2,000 solar installations;
- BVI Solar, a California licensed roofer and solar contractor which has been party to over 1,000 solar installations – founded by an early pioneer of the solar roof concept, which later became the CertainTeed Apollo II Solar Shingle;
- Bel Aire Construction and Development, an established property development firm to drive the development of green housing developments, driving notable synergies across the SIRC family of companies;
- Music City Roofing, a very highly-rated roofer in Tennessee, with over 5,000 roofs replaced and over 3,400 roofs repaired since inception – while furthering a charitable mission centered on giving back to the local community;
- Heartland Constructors, a licensed EPC and a premier west Texas solar provider which has served as a lucrative referral source for SIRC – referring a nationwide EV charging station contract spanning over 200 apartment complexes as well as several high-value solar projects.
The news came shortly after SIRC reported record revenue figures for the third quarter of the fiscal year 2022, which surged an impressive 964% to $48.2 million compared to revenue of $4.5 million in the same year-ago quarter.
The acquisitions don’t cause dilution, as SIRC has a great share structure. SIRC is turning into a national brand, and $0.50 is really a good entry point. We believe this stock is undervalued.
$SIRC No more stock dilutions for acquisitions per the guidance of Arbiter Bank. The seven companies being acquired have agreed to use proceeds to buy SIRC shares on the open market. 💪 https://t.co/uz5RS2Tz8X$BLNK $OEG $CHPT $SUNW $SPWR $SHLS $ENPH $MAXN $TSLA $RUN $JKS $FSLR

OTC STOCKS #4 UNQL
Unique Logistics International, Inc has been the best-performing stock compared to the other three, but we still believe it’s massively undervalued. The OTC stock is now trading at $0.064, up 80% during the last five trading sessions. UNQL has surged over 220% over the month, hitting the highest level since the beginning of July.
At the end of 2020, Unique Logistics Holdings went through a reverse merger and now plans to change its name and symbol as well as uplist to higher-tier markets.
Unique Logistics is a global logistics and freight forwarding company serving a large customer base in the US that includes well-known retailers and other companies that import goods to the US, export goods from the US to other countries, or require other supply chain services, including warehousing. Unique Logistics executes sections of the supply chain process for its customers and holds operating licenses issued by US Customs, the Federal Maritime Commission, and the Transportation Security Administration for this purpose. It offers air and ocean freight, customs brokerage and compliance, warehouse and distribution, and order management services.
Here is the interesting part: UNQL’s market cap is only $42 million but the company generates over $400 million in revenue per quarter! Earlier this month, UNQL shared its financials for Q2 ending November 30, reporting revenue growth of 225% to $408 million. Income was up 190% to $5.7 million.
CEO Sunandan Ray said:
“With this record quarter, UNQL remains firmly on track to achieve and exceed our goals for Fiscal Year 2022. The successful organic growth of our business has positioned us strongly to complete strategic acquisitions, integrate them into our organization and expand our business for the future.”
UNQL may become one of the best stock picks during this bearish market. With a great share structure and potentially great acquisitions ahead, the stock should get much closer to the $1 mark.
Last month, UNQL said that it had reached an agreement with current debt holders to recapitalize and eliminate all outstanding convertible notes and warrants in exchange for equity. With no more toxic dilution and increasing revenue, guess which direction the share price will go.
$UNQL taking profits now is funny when financials puts this 5-10x higher. This will hit all time highs in next dews weeks and then it could moon based on news. Current financials support this rise and much more. https://t.co/m2LKMWrCIt
