There hasn’t been much to get excited about so far in 2022. We are seeing a choppy market and a lack of multi-day runners. This is a trader’s market and not an investor’s.
Right now, one needs to be quick to take profits and go where the opportunities are. For us and our subscribers here at Insider Financial, that means trading both OTC and Nasdaq stocks.
There are plenty of opportunities for our subscribers in OTC, Nasdaq, and NYSE penny stocks with low floats, news, and a significant short position.
Smart investors know that if you want to make the big money off a small account, the place to be is in penny stocks. There are many good penny stocks that can boost your portfolio’s value in the long term. 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.
In this article, we take a look at 4 penny stocks that can do well in the following weeks. They are Alpine 4 Holdings, Inc (NASDAQ: ALPP), Vinco Ventures, Inc (NASDAQ: BBIG), Guardforce AI Co., Limited (NASDAQ: GFAI), and Splash Beverage Group, Inc (NYSE American: SBEV).
PENNY STOCKS #1 ALPP
Alpine 4 Holdings, Inc hasn’t been doing well even as the company got uplisted from OTCQB to NASDAQ. Nevertheless, as we usually preach, this may be the right time to buy the dip, especially when it has a healthy balance sheet. At the time of writing, the stock is trading near $1.51, the lowest level since the end of 2020.
Despite the multi-month bearish trend that started in February following ALPP’s peak at over $9, the stock has actually been a great success for our subscribers. We first paid attention to ALPP in February 2020, when the share price was just $.075 a share.
ALPP owns and acquires businesses that fit into its disruptive DSF business model of Drivers, Stabilizers, and Facilitators. It offers electronic contract manufacturing solutions in the US.
The company also provides automotive technologies, including:
- 6thSense Auto – a connected car technology that provides various advantages to management, sales, finance, and service departments in the automotive dealership industry to enhance productivity, profitability, and customer retention.
- BrakeActive – a safety device that enhances vehicle’s third brake light’s ability to reduce or prevent a rear end collision.
ALPP also provides fabricated metal parts, assemblies, and sub-assemblies to original equipment manufacturers. It also designs, fabricates, and installs dust collectors, commercial ductwork, kitchen hoods, industrial ventilation systems, machine guards, architectural work, water furnaces, and others, as well as specialized spiral ductwork.
Last year, the company developed its blockchain-enabled Enterprise Business Operating System called SPECTRUMebos.
On top of that, ALPP’s subsidiary Vayu, Inc is developing aircraft, conducts research, tests markets, and builds relationships with early adopters, suppliers, and regulatory authorities around the globe.
In a recent update from CEO Kent Wilson, he said that the 2021 accomplishments were clearly visible. The company is now projecting revenue in excess of $100 million for 2022 without any additional acquisitions, which is pretty significant for a company with a market cap under $300 million as of today.
ALPP is also making advancements on many fronts ranging from high-tech graphene-enhanced lithium batteries to advancements in commercial UAVs with Vayu’s G1 and the ongoing development of the US-2, with more details to come soon.
The CEO asked for patients and expressed his confidence in the company despite the current bearishness.

“Please try to ignore the drama on social media platforms. They are a horrible place to seek investment advice, as many commentators on those sites have an agenda, and those agendas, generally, do not benefit you or the company. Alpine 4 has had considerable accomplishments in the past eight years since its founding, as we strive to create positive change in the world we live in. Unfortunately, the market we operate in i.e., the stock market, doesn’t always reflect those accomplishments.”
The price will definitely find a bottom sooner than later, and you better hoard the stock at this low price before a major update triggers another rally.
Institutions are adding up alpine, if this isn't a great time not sure when is.
Ignore the fud, and actually watch what the institutions are doing
This is what we want. Institutions buy to decrease volatility.

PENNY STOCKS #2 BBIG
Unlike ALPP, Vinco Ventures, Inc has had a great week, surging about 90% during the last five trading days. At the time of writing, the NASDAQ-listed stock is trading at $4.53. Earlier this week, it broke above the $5 mark for the first time since the beginning of November.
Vinco operates as a consumer product research and development, manufacturing, sales, and fulfillment company in North America, the Asia Pacific, and Europe. It manufactures and offers toys, plush, homewares, and electronics to retailers, distributors, and manufacturers through e-commerce channels, as well as personal protective equipment to governmental agencies, hospitals, and distributors. The company was formerly known as Edison Nation, Inc and changed its name in November 2020.
Vinco operates 13 consumer and digital marketing brands, including 911 Help Now, SRM Idea Lab, and Ferguson Containers.
BBIG’s business model relies on aggressive acquisitions based on its BIG strategy: buy, innovate, and grow.
BBIG is getting a lot of attention of social media, and with a huge short float of over 20%, it can become a short squeeze candidate. The $600+ million company had already experienced this scenario last year when it surged over 260% at the beginning of September.

The stock has making waves thanks to BBIG’s social media app called Lomotif, which is a competitor of TikTok. The company is also tapping into non-fungible tokens (NFTs), with an investment in projectable E-NFTs.
Nevertheless, the biggest expectations are associated with the company’s upcoming crypto spinoff Cryptyde, which will be launching on Wall Street under the TYDE symbol.
BBIG was among the top five most-talked-about tickers on Reddit earlier this week, along with names like GameStop, Tesla, and Microsoft. Considering the increasing popularity and the upcoming catalysts, BBIG is poised to expand its market cap to break the $1 billion mark soon. You can still buy it while it’s a penny stock.

PENNY STOCKS #3 GFAI
Guardforce AI Co., Limited has been moving horizontally this year, although it saw an uptick last Friday that hasn’t managed to put the price action on a bullish path. GFAI joined the NASDAQ league last year and is the smallest company on today’s list, with a market cap of less than $25 million. Its price is holding above $1.1, after breaking above $2 last week on record volume figures.
There is much room for growth as GFAI started the NASDAQ journey in September at about $4.
The Thai company offers cash solutions and cash handling services at home. Its services include cash-in-transit, vehicles to banks, ATM management, cash center operations, cash processing, coin processing, and cheque center services, as well as cash deposit machine solutions comprising cash deposit management and express cash services. Its customers include local commercial banks, chain retailers, coin manufacturing mints, and government authorities.
In 2020, GFAI launched its robotics solutions for customers in Thailand and the Asia Pacific region with the deployment of AI-powered robots managed by an Intelligent Cloud Platform (ICP). The service is aimed at medical institutions, office buildings, business units, campuses, residential communities, and apartments.
The robotics segment continued to expand with the recent proposed acquisition of SBC Global Holdings Inc in the US. The acquisition, which is about to close in a few weeks, will further empower the company’s operations and ability to deploy robotic and technology solutions in the US and Canada.
The latest price surge came after GFAI announced the expansion of its Robotics as a Service (RaaS) offering with the proposed acquisition of Shenzhen Keweien Robot Service Co., Ltd (SZ) and Guangzhou Kewei Robot Technology Co., Ltd (GZ). The proposed acquisition is scheduled to be completed by the end of February 2022.
GFAI CEO Lei Wang commented:
“This strategic acquisition is emblematic of Guardforce AI’s growth strategy of acquiring successful companies that are leaders in their field. This development is expected to contribute to our goal of scaling operations while providing swift entry into highly evolving markets. China’s surging focus in robotics development and AI applications makes this proposed acquisition a natural fit for us. As a result of this proposed acquisition, we will gain an incredibly experienced and established sales team. Upon the completion, SZ and GZ will benefit from Guardforce AI’s global scale and presence, allowing them enhanced international opportunities.”
SZ and GZ are based in the Greater Bay Area, one of the fastest-growing economic regions in China, with both Shenzhen and Guangzhou ranking among the top 10 largest Chinese cities and in the top 30 globally.
With expected net revenue of over $55 million without the SZ and GZ deal, GFAI has the potential to return to its IPO price, which translates into great opportunities for investors.
$GFAI mcap 22.4M
– Net revenue of $33-$35 million
– 2022 Company expects:
Net revenue of $55-$60 million

PENNY STOCKS #4 SBEV
Splash Beverage Group, Inc has been on the rise and momentum is still solid. The NYSE American stock has already surged by over 240% during the last two weeks, currently trading at $3.96. The price touched the $5 mark for the first time since June.
The Florida-based company with a $130 million market cap produces, distributes, and markets various beverages in the US. It offers hydration and recovery isotonic sport drink under the TapouT Performance brand, and flavored tequilas under the SALT Naturally Flavored Tequila brand. It also sells beverages and groceries online through qplash.com, produces premium wine under the Copa di Vino brand, and offers premium Pulpoloco Sangria.
The price bottomed out on January 10 near the $1 mark to touch the lowest level on record and then took off the bullish move following several announcements.
Last week, SBEV said that it had received authorization to sell its TapouT performance drink in Florida beginning with 47 Walmart stores located in major metropolitan regions. Walmart has approximately 341 stores in the state of Florida, the second-largest number of stores by state in the US.
CEO Robert Nistico said:
“We are thrilled with this Walmart authorization, and this is a wonderful way to start 2022. Walmart is extremely selective in the brands they choose to offer their shoppers and selecting TapouT is great validation that TapouT can compete at the highest level with the biggest global brands.”
On Wednesday, SBEV announced that it had received authorization to sell its Pulpoloco Sangria line in 187 of Ralph’s Grocery stores. Ralph’s Grocery, a division of The Kroger Company, is a market share leader with 187 stores across Southern California.
Thanks to these deals, SBEV is improving its fundamentals significantly and is becoming a great penny stock to hold in 2022.
THE FINAL NOTE
Now is a great opportunity to invest in top penny stocks with great potential. Our job is to identify the best penny stocks with strong fundamentals and let our subscribers pick the ones they like to build a well-diversified portfolio.
Buying dips and selling rips as swing trades remains the best strategy in the stock market. Still, whenever a hot stock is in the middle of a bull run, we recommend our subscribers to book profits.
It’s very important to eye penny 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 penny stocks to run in order to crush the market averages.
As always, good luck to all (except the shorts)!
