Global markets have been erratic, as volatility continues vengeance. A major index can fluctuate an entire percentage in mere minutes, but as any experienced trader will tell you, what is a selling window for one is a “buying opportunity” for another.

Mining or tech? Investors don’t have to choose. There are plenty of great small-cap investment opportunities in both sectors.

New data has shown that patients turned to telehealth during the pandemic and Datametrex AI Ltd. (TSXV:DM, Forum) has announced that its telehealth business, Medi-Call, now has its app available for iOS device users in Vancouver.

Vancouver, BC, residents can now download the app’s first release through the Apple App Store.

Services by Medi-Call include one 360-degree quarterly in-home wellness visits like checkups, unlimited access to the company’s telehealth platform, free prescription refills, access to expert nursing team, safe and secure electronic medical record keeping system that follows the user geographically.

The Toronto Stock Exchange recently launched the S&P/TSX Battery Metals Index and one company involved in that space is HPQ Silicon Resources Inc. (TSXV: HPQForum), who has just changed its name to HPQ Silicon Inc. / HPQ Silicium Inc.

Industry Canada issued a Certificate of Amendment under the Canada Business Corporations Act confirming the legal name of the company.

The company has also officially completed its change of business as required by the TSX Venture Exchange to change its classification from a Tier 2 Mining Issuer to an Industrial, Technology or Life Sciences Tier 1 Issuer.

HPQ’s team believes that the change in classification and upgrade to Tier 1 level issuer on the TSX Venture better reflects its current core business, given its focus on commercializing its silicon solutions and technology development. This includes its hydrogen extraction technology venture, combined with the upcoming commercial validation of the PUREVAP Quartz Reduction Reactor technology.

HPQ Silicon is a Quebec-based innovative silicon solutions company developing a unique portfolio of high value-added silicon products sought after by battery and electric vehicle manufacturers.

The company also stated TH1902 is undergoing its first-in-human study linked to docetaxel for the treatment of sortilin-expressing cancers. It has received fast-track designation from the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

Canada boasts many great publicly listed small-cap corporations. These companies discover and develop natural resources, pioneer innovations in a multitude of different settings, and are the first to identify new opportunities. They are the most-nimble entities when it comes to exploiting these opportunities, and in many cases these companies are creating new opportunities on their own.
