Are These The Best Small Cap Stocks To Buy Right Now?
The stock market is trending higher after Memorial Day weekend. Not only are we seeing large cap stocks jumping but so are small cap stocks. Positive sentiments from the easing of lockdown has been a driving force for certain industries, particularly travel-related stocks. But our focus today is on small cap stocks that are having a breakout this week. The second quarter has most definitely seen some big gainers so far. If you dive into corporate filings of many small cap stocks, you’re likely to come across a handful of Chinese small cap stocks. Many of them are famously known for their swift breakouts and rapid breakdowns.
The rising tensions between the U.S. and China are pushing some traders to the edge of their seats. The new bill passed by the U.S. Senate last week could pose some threats to Chinese stocks listed on U.S. stock exchanges. The tension was further escalated when China proposed a new national security law on Hong Kong. This in turn raised questions on the future of some of the biggest Chinese companies in the US stock market today. Companies like Alibaba (BABA Stock Report) and JD.com (JD Stock Report) are among the names at risk of being delisted. We’ll have to see how this plays out in the coming months.
The Luckin Coffee’s scandal also came at an inopportune time. China-based companies have been treated with skepticism among some investors. That’s because Luckin, and possibly other companies, demonstrated inconsistencies in reporting financial data. But before we jump to conclusions, let us not forget the episodes of Enron and WorldCom. Putting this aside, let’s look at a few small cap stocks that have attracted investors’ attention for a variety of reasons this week.

News of Greenpro Capital (GRNQ Stock Report) shares skyrocketing was one of the hottest topics on Wednesday. The GRNQ stock made a huge jump of 212.46% in a single day.
