Japaul Gold records 40% surge in a week raising its capitalization by N1.38 billion

Shares of the rebranded company surged by a whopping 40%, in the first active trading week in the month of April.

Japaul Gold took the market by surprise in the first active trading week in the month of April, as the shares of the rebranded company surged by a whopping 40%, to lift the company’s capitalization by about N1.38 billion.

The recent move which led to the N1.38 billion increase in Japaul Gold’s market value can be attributed to the actions of bargain hunters and value investors.

These investors, during the week, seized the company’s relatively low price to accumulate additional stakes in the company, in a bid to capitalize on the upward swing in the price of the company’s shares.

Data tracked from the close of the market on the 1st of April to the close of trading activities on the exchange yesterday revealed that the shares of Japaul Gold and Ventures Plc surged by 40% from N0.41 to N0.63.

This suggests that the share price of the gold exploration company surged by 40% in just four trading sessions on the NSE this week. In line with this, the market capitalization of Japaul Gold increased from N2.57 billion to N3.95 billion, representing a N1.38 billion gain during the week.

In case you missed it: Prior to the recent move to N0.63 per share at the close of the market yesterday, the shares of Japaul Gold bottomed at N0.41 on the 31st of March 2021, after printing a record high of N1.67 per share on the 18th of January, 2021.

What you should know

Bitcoin’s dominance is currently 55.36%, an increase of 0.21% over the day.

Investors are moving their funds to Bitcoin after an avalanche of COVID-19 stimulus shocked the crypto market since last year amid fears of rising fiat inflated currencies coupled with leading business brands adding more buying pressures on Bitcoin with BNY Mellon, America’s oldest bank giving its approval on the new digital gold as it makes a debut into mainstream investment assets.

Consequently, MicroStrategy now has 91,579 BTCs worth about $5.54 billion while Tesla holds 32,608 BTCs, hinting that more global business brands may take such route to hold the most popular crypto as a treasury tool amid concerns that just 21 million BTCs will ever exist with about 4 million BTCs already lost forever.

That being said, crypto pundits argue that bitcoin still faces strong headwinds in the coming months amid growing regulatory concerns. There is also the bias that its high volatility is making it challenging for some traditional investors to come on board and its massive electrical consumption via the blockchain has also put it at odds with many environmentalists.
