Be the first with the news that moves the market

Once the U.S. Thanksgiving is in the rear-view, the mood among North American markets dramatically shifts. Traders must now juggle holidays, gifts, and vacations on one hand, and the end of their fiscal years on the other.

Companies share this sentiment as well, looking to end the calendar year on a positive note, pushing last-second “Hail Mary” rallies for their shares as attractive investments for the tax sell-off season.

Any stock plays that appear to be on the rebound are always a magnet for hot discussions on the Bullboards, as investors and analysts debate whether to put up money into what is part of a long-term recovery or short-term rally.

This week, we highlight three companies in three sectors that have either seen a surge or a dip heading into the winter season. Who could be continuing their trend upward? Let’s break down what is happening and see which investments are worthwhile bargains or potential money pits.

Two markets that have gathered a lot of investor attention lately are tech and health care. One company out there that is quite popular among the Bullboards has managed to tap into both.

Datametrex AI Ltd. (TSXV:DMForum) has scored a turnkey opportunity for a fully operational health clinic business, which integrates with the company’s other medical initiatives in telehealth.

The company has acquired Imagine Health Medical Clinics Ltd., Imagine Health Pharmacies & Research Ltd. and Imagine Health Physio Ltd.

The acquisition of Imagine Health was completed by way of a share purchase agreement from November, between Datametrex, Imagine Health, and the shareholders of Imagine Health.

Datametrex acquired all of the issued and outstanding shares of Imagine Health corporate entities for two sites in Alberta (one in Calgary and one in Edmonton) for a purchase price of $2,600,000, satisfied by $1,300,000 in cash, 5,000,000 common shares of Datametrex, and a secured vendor take-back note with a principal amount of $800,000 payable in installments of 6, 12 and 18 months from the date of issuance. The note is secured by the assets of Imagine Health. Datametrex has committed to expanding Imagine Health by way of working and growth capital contribution of up to $1,000,000 to Imagine Health over a period of twelve months from the date of the acquisition.

The Imagine Health entities are now wholly-owned subsidiaries of Datametrex. Imagine Health co-founder Dr. Jonathan Chan will act as Chief Operating Officer of Imagine Health Medical Clinics Ltd. and Imagine Health Physio Ltd. Imagine Health co-founder Mr. Ray Yue will act as Chief Operating Officer of Imagine Health Pharmacies & Research Ltd., ensuring the continuity of growth and leadership of Imagine Health.

Planning on travelling this holiday season? Aviation heavyweight Bombardier Inc. (TSX:BBDForum) reported that NetJets has ordered four of its Global 8000 jets for $312 million.

NetJets, a Berkshire Hathaway company, provides shared jet ownership, lease and jet card options, aircraft management, private jet chartering, brokerage and acquisition services, as well as specialized security services.

NetJets is also converting its Global 7500 fleet and eight existing orders for Bombardier products to the 8000 model, which will bring its Global 8000 fleet to 24.

The Global 8000 features an industry-leading range of 8,000 nautical miles and a top speed of Mach 0.94, as well as cutting-edge entertainment systems and advanced HEPA filter technology.

The aircraft also features the Nuage seat, offering the first zero-gravity position in a business jet, allowing owners to arrive at their destinations revitalized and refreshed.

Topping the metals and mining Bullboards this week is New Found Gold (TSXV:NFGForum), who struck a bonanza-grade gold intercept on its Queensway Project in Newfoundland and Labrador.

Follow-up drilling targeting the new Keats West discovery area, which had a hole with a grade interval of 171.60 grams of gold per tonne over 6.50 metres.

The prospective hole was a part of a program designed to follow up on high-grade gold recently found at Keats West, located west of the highly prospective Appleton Fault Zone.

The intercept is located 200 metres down-plunge of a previously reported high-grade gold intercept and 25 metres along strike of another known high-grade intercept.

The company stated that with this new intercept and others in nearby known holes, the intercepts have all been interpreted to occur within the same host structure.

Broad fields of lower-grade gold were also intercepted in multiple holes over a footprint spanning Keats West.

Companies look to end the calendar year on a positive note, and any stocks making last-second rallies become even more attractive. The Bullboards light up with discussions surrounding plays that look like they are on the rebound, and investors and analysts debate whether to invest in what is part of a long-term recovery or short-term spike.

If there is one thing to guarantee, the year is wrapping up quickly, as is the trading season ahead of the Christmas holiday. Even though this is just the beginning of December, there are only a few more editions of Buzz on the Bullboards to come in 2022 to see how the hottest stocks and sectors are faring heading into the new year.
