New call-to-action

SOS Limited (SOS)

If you've heard about the blockchain and the metaverse – big buzzwords right now – then you should know how many resources are required to operate them. As we move more into the "techno world", as I'd call it, supercomputers are at the core of making this a reality. SOS Limited has been and remains in the progress of positioning itself in the supercomputing market

 

Trading at around $0.70 per share, the company is in the process of constructing its Wisconsin Center, a supercomputing and hosting centre. The centre stands to benefit from renewable energy after expanding its power grid to 50MW.

According to Yandai Wang, SOS chairperson: "The supercomputing and hosting centre in Wisconsin is an important part of SOS's efforts to create its own blockchain technology-based ecosystem.

"We look forward to launching our supercomputing and hosting service business in Wisconsin in the first quarter of 2022."

This comes after the company upscaled its crypto mining operations and formed a joint venture that will be hosting SOS’s supercomputing centre, the Digital Super Computing Operations Center. In the 2021 calendar year (CY21) also raised $3.4 million to expand its smart vending and digital marketing platform.

By the end of the company's six-month period ending 30 June 2021, SOS revenue increased to $184.5 million, representing a growth of over 1800% from the reported revenue in the previous comparative period of $9.9 million. As a result of its crypto mining operations, gross profit improved during the period to $17.2 million from $0.8 million PCP in June 2020. SOS cash balance was sitting at $185 million compared to $0.61 million PCP. Given the revenue and the number of outstanding shares (234.05 million), SOS had an EPS of $0.79 per share and was trading relatively below its earnings with a PE ratio of 0.9x, as of writing.

New call-to-action

Quantum-Si Inc (QSI)

Trading at around $4, Quantum-Si Inc is a biotech company focused on advancing the next generation semiconductor chips that will enable what it calls "single-molecule next-generation protein sequencing".

Prior to its listing by June 2021, Quantum merged with HighCape Capital Acquisition Corp, a health-focused company. This transaction provided Quantum with a capital injection of over $500 million.

 

According to Dr Jonathan Rothberg, founder and chairperson of Quantum, the merger "will power the commercialisation of our technology to disrupt the rapidly growing proteomics market.

"Having been at the forefront of next-generation DNA sequencing, it is very fitting that our team is also on the cusp of making next-generation protein sequencing a reality."

As of the third quarter of the company's fiscal year (FY21 Q3), Quantum reported a cash balance greater than $500 million with at least more than 500 patents rewarded/filed. Making commercial progress in the year, the company expanded its understanding of proteoforms (a term used for describing protein complexity or rather protein species) to 1,000,000 proteoforms, from the range of the known proteins (10,000). The company is currently trading with a market cap of $550 million, as of writing.

Roundup

As inflation continues to take a toll on the global economy, stocks, especially tech looking stocks - may face volatility as more data reveal how widespread inflation is.

Furthermore, with oil prices remaining high, as a driving factor of inflation, this may contribute to triggering a sell-off in markets moving closer to the period when central banks review inflation, consumer price and spending data, which may be an opportunity for investors to buy the dip.
