The OTC bear market hasn’t gone away; however, this too shall pass. We’ve been here before and will be here again no matter what happens. Markets go in cycles and OTC stocks aren’t immune. Matter of fact, the OTC probably sees more bull and bear markets in a year than any other market.
OTC investors are failing to realize that there are still plenty of opportunities on the OTC Markets. Continuing to buy the dips in losers is not a winning strategy. We tell our subscribers to focus on what’s working and ignore the noise. Don’t get caught up in the diamond hands/paper hands BS. We talk about all of this in the video below.
In this article, we look at 4 hot OTC stocks, including American Battery Technology Company (OTCQB: ABML), LiveToBeHappy, Inc (OTCPK: CAVR), Fernhill Corporation (OTCPK: FERN), and International Star, Inc (OTCPK: ILST).
OTC STOCKS #1 ABML
American Battery Technology Company has had a great month so far, with the OTCQB member getting back to the $1 billion market cap. ABML has gained 75% over the month to trade at $1.60. On Monday, the stock broke above $1.7 for the first time since July.
The last time when we covered ABML in February of this year, it was trading near $1. We concluded that it was undervalued at that price and we keep saying it today. By the way, we first reported on this stock at the beginning of last year, when the share price fluctuated near five pennies. Our subscribers that got exposure at the time could have seen profits in the range of 3,000% and even as high as 8,000% at the February peak near $5.
For those still unfamiliar with ABML, it is an advanced technology battery recycling and resource production company. It explores, mines, extracts, and recycles battery metals. It is focused on its Railroad Valley battery metal project in Nevada with the goal of becoming a substantial domestic supplier of battery metals to the increasing electric vehicles and battery storage markets in America.
We have big expectations of ABML because, even though the EV market is expanding at a fast pace, few battery makers are thinking about recycling. ABML has the opportunity to become a leader in the battery recycling market. On top of that, it is exploring and mines lithium and other components needed for batteries.
This year, ABML has been building its lithium-ion battery recycling Pilot Plant, which will consist of three functional building areas totaling approximately 100,000 square feet of floor space with 60,000 square feet dedicated to production space.
The latest price surge intensified after the Biden administration announced that the President would refer to the Defense Production Act (DPA) to produce minerals used in EV batteries. ABML, which is about to change its ticker to ABTC to reflect its recently updated name, welcomed the news. CEO Ryan Melsert said:
“ABTC is uniquely positioned to support this Presidential initiative to accelerate the ramp up of domestic environmentally and socially responsible manufacturing and refining capacity of battery metals. We have the opportunity, the imperative, and the responsibility to work collectively to support this transition to a lower-carbon infrastructure. While there are large amounts of battery cell and electric vehicle manufacturing capacity already under construction in the US, the President accurately identified that there is a large void in the upstream portion of this domestic supply chain and a significant shortage in the amount of domestic and environmentally responsible battery materials manufacturing and refining capacity required to feed these facilities.”

The ABTC team has developed and is currently commercializing a first-of-kind processing train for the manufacturing of battery grade lithium hydroxide from Nevada-based sedimentary claystone resources as part of the company’s Tonopah Flats Lithium Exploration Project, which is supported by its recently awarded grant from the US Department of Energy, Advanced Manufacturing Office, in partnership with DuPont. The technologies for this processing train were developed through rigorous first principles physics-based design, and have been demonstrated at bench scale to be able to produce these battery metal lithium products with a disruptive step change improvement in environmental footprint.
The company said that it had also developed and is commercializing an in-house designed set of technologies for the integrated recycling of lithium-ion batteries and the recovery and manufacturing of key battery metals, such as lithium, nickel, cobalt, manganese, and copper. ABML currently has under construction its pre-commerial lithium battery recycling plant in northern Nevada, and is undergoing a commercial scale development and demonstration project in collaboration with BASF and C4V through a grant awarded by the US Department of Energy in collaboration with the US Advanced Battery Consortium, a subsidiary of the United States Council for Automotive Research (USCAR), which is a collaborative technology company comprised of General Motors, Ford, and Stellantis.
ABML is in the ongoing process of becoming a major player in a fast-growing market. We feel that it will advance to leave the penny stock league.
OTC STOCKS #2 CAVR
LiveToBeHappy, Inc has had some bullish attempt at the end of March, but the bearish pressure was still overwhelming and the Pink Current stock has lost almost 10% since last week. The price is now fluctuating near $0.016, close to the lowest since January 2021.
We covered CAVR in a dedicated article back in February 2021, when it was trading near 4 cents. The stock eventually broke above $0.06, but then lost momentum and has declined since then. At the time, the company was named CAVU Resources.
LiveToBeHappy is a cross-platform holding company with a Real Estate Development Platform and Technology Platform. The former is managed by wholly-owned subsidiary Sinacori Builders. When it comes to the Technology division, the company launched Growing Together Academy, an online education program, the DRIP Climber, a patent-pending climbing machine, and SOKU, an avatar-based social media application.
At the end of March, the company reported its positive performance in 2021 and said it expected even better results for 2022. Investors had a prompt reaction to the news, but the bullish momentum failed to maintain.
CEO Kevin Vincent Cox commented:
“I’m thrilled with our revenue and profit growth on a year over year audited basis. 2021 was the best revenue year for the company ever, and we’re confident we will double, if not triple it in 2022. If you consider all the investments we’ve made into preparing the company for long-term growth, laying the foundation to up-list to OTCQB, building an M&A pipeline, completing 5 acquisitions, and outperforming financially – it’s stunning! I believe the market will be amazed by our success in 2022 as we continue to grow our core real estate services business, start to realize the gains from thee 5 businesses we acquired in late 2021, and close on additional acquisitions under LOI – stay tuned for additional news early next week as we’re just getting started!”
Earlier this week, the company came with some exciting news, and we expect the stock to recover sooner than later. We always preach that buying the dip is the right approach to target profits. On Monday, CAVR said that it had been offered a $30 Million Term Sheet to fund new acquisitions, recapitalize the business, and initiate a share repurchase of up to 6% of the outstanding common stock.
The $25 million company also announced that it had acquired a majority stake in HRS Construction (HRS), a Real Estate Services Company with $20 Million in its revenue pipeline for 2022. HRS operates throughout the southeast and is focused on real estate services and large commercial rehabilitation. The acquisition is expected to be significantly accretive to the company’s combined 2022 net income.
Kevin Vincent Cox said:
“Our hard work is starting to payoff in multiples for the company. This is an exciting and strategic acquisition for us. No shares are being added to the float and the team at HRS and Sinacori have already started their integration planning. We reached another major milestone and will be executing a $30 Million term sheet that upon funding will finance additional real estate services acquisitions, payoff existing convertible debt, and reduce the current float by 15%. We are expanding our footprint, our labor pool, and our service offerings.”
CAVR has a decent share structure and it is ready for more acquisitions, which means the best is still to come.
#real — those who invested into Logistyx with me in 2017 made 7X their investment in 4 1/2 years. Cant guarantee the same for $CAVR, of course, but I can guarantee the same strategic prowess, leverage, and energy is being put into action — and I’ve invested more here. #doitagain

OTC STOCKS #3 FERN
March has been a strong month for Fernhill Corporation. The Pink Current stock bottomed out in mid-February at about $0.006 before managing to recover to the current level at $0.016, up 55% during the last five days alone and close to the highest since January.
Exactly one year ago, when we reported on this crypto play, the stock was trading slightly lower, but it eventually broke above the six penny mark in September, enabling investors to secure generous returns. Despite the bearish mood that has been around for months, FERN is on its way to recovering and potentially consolidating above the $0.5 mark if it manages to adjust to the new conditions of the crypto market.
Fernhill Corp is a developer and acquirer of high-performance proprietary software solutions focused on cryptocurrency mining, crypto trading, and infrastructure applications that are designed to simplify, optimize and automate the blockchain ecosystem.
The latest spike came after FERN released an investor presentation in March, according to which it will expand its ecosystem in 2022. The $34 million company now operates PerfectMine, which helps optimize and automate rigs for higher returns for the top tokens that can be mined with GPUs and CPUs. MainBloq acts as a crypto trading platform that offers global liquidity and instant execution across multiple crypto exchanges. MainBloq is connected to 33 exchanges and OTC desks using FIX, Web Sockets and REST APIs to and from venues. FERN is currently working to develop a non-fungible token (NFT) minting solution as well as a decentralized finance (DeFi) platform.
With an almost ideal share structure and two upcoming major updates, FERN is about to make a big move.
OTC STOCKS #4 ILST
International Star, Inc is a small Pink Current company that changed business direction at the end of last year and has been making the first steps of its new journey, which translates into great opportunities for investors. The share price has more than doubled since its recent bottom at the beginning of March, which was the lowest level in a year. ILST is now trading at $0.0083, up 13% since last week.
The $17 million company used to focus on mineral property interests, but it shifted its business focus to fintech, Decentralized Finance (DeFi), blockchain, metaverse, non-fungible tokens (NFTs), crypto and gaming industry.
ILST has been evaluating various acquisition candidates for months, and it was close to securing some deals, although no official announcement has been released to date.
We like that ILST has a great share structure, with outstanding shares making accounting for about 66% of the authorized shares.
Investors are keeping an eye on ILST because it’s yet another Caren Currier play. Caren is has a great reputation for being a reverse merger guru. Our subscribers may know her contribution to companies like ILUS, AXTG, and OWUV.
On March 15, she said that her team had some important updates to be announced soon.
Just to let everyone know that we are working on ILST and hope to be able to release some news soon
— Caren Currier (@QTToesLA) March 15, 2022
Note that ILST is still making its first steps, and it can quickly grow into something huge. Getting exposure at less than two pennies is the real deal. This may become another OWUV, which was one of the biggest winners for our subscribers in 2021.
THE FINAL NOTE
All of the 4 OTC stocks discussed today are good stocks to own. The upside is much greater than the downside at these levels.
It’s also very important to eye OTC stocks that 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 penny stocks to succeed in order to crush the market averages.
As always, good luck to all (except the shorts)!
