2 Small-Cap Growth Stocks Offering Once-in-a-Lifetime Opportunities

Small-cap stocks that aren’t widely known to investors offer special opportunities to those who get in early. Once stocks like Drone Delivery Canada Corp (TSXV:FLT) or Goldmoney Inc (TSX:XAU) become mainstream, the stocks tend to shoot up, as investors rush to get a piece of the action before everyone else.

Finding small-cap stocks that are mostly unheard of offers investors great opportunities. The best way to make a ton of money is to find future stars before the rest of the market. It doesn’t always take a fortune teller to pick these stars.

In many cases, the business is a leader in a new industry, and it is clear that the stock will be worth more one day; the only question is when. These stocks are ideal for a small portion of your portfolio, as they carry a lot of risk, but they offer massive rewards.

You may not even need to wait specifically for profitability, as these stocks will see a hefty jump once they become more commonly known among investors throughout Canada.

Two stocks that are relatively unheard of that offer huge opportunity for investors are Drone Delivery Canada (TSXV:FLT) and Goldmoney (TSX:XAU).

Drone Delivery Canada

Drone Delivery Canada is a delivery platform and logistics company that has been developing its technology since 2014. It’s building a cost-effective platform that is scalable and will lead to the next generation of delivery and logistics to various industries.

Currently, the company is undergoing testing in Vaughn with a variety of pilot partners to tweak the services and technology to client needs. It has a variety of specifications to get in order before the first commercial flights can be up and running, but it’s cutting no corners in the effort to build its data and knowledge of specific parametres.

Drone Delivery Canada is a prime opportunity for investors to get in on this brand-new industry that will be sure to grow as online shopping continues to grow and as the technology for drones improves.

Right now, it has a market cap of just ~$160 million, offering investors an opportunity to get in on the ground floor of this brand-new industry.


Goldmoney is a precious metals custodian for investors to buy and hold a variety of products. Through its platform, it makes buying and selling precious metals extremely easy and charges a small fee for the transactions. It also offers physical gold redemption and the ability to apply for prepaid cards backed by the precious metals in your account.

Because it is the easiest and cheapest way for investors to buy physical gold, it is one of the top growth companies on the market. Since 2017, it has more than doubled the amount of gold it’s holding on behalf of clients.

It continues to innovate its existing platforms and launch new ones to better capture the needs of users. In January, it launched its Goldmoney Active Trader platform, allowing investors to better select the timing and prices of their transactions.

It did over $4 million in gross profit in the first quarter of fiscal 2020 and has a trailing 12-month price-to-earnings ratio of just over seven times.

Bottom line

Both companies offer investors the chance to get into cutting-edge businesses at the ground floor. Investors can expect appreciation of the share prices over time, as more investors learn of the once-in-a-lifetime opportunities and pile into the stocks.
