The #1 Stock for the 2022 Big Tech Boom


(MENAFN- Baystreet.ca) The #1 Stock for the 2022 Big Tech Boom

The semiconductor shortage has wreaked havoc on the tech boom…

Hitting revenues, and profit margins, hard over the past year.

But it could become worse, as a critical gas shortage may soon disrupt every single tech company across the industry.

The shortage of a rare gas could slow the production of all electronics, affecting both consumers and some of the largest companies in the world.

However, it's a growing crisis that most are still completely unaware of.

While some of the biggest oil and gas companies are spending billions on capturing natural gas, another rare resource is worth roughly 100 times more today.



 

Tech companies are spending tens of millions of dollars on the rare gas and its derivatives each and every year.

For example, just for a single space rocket launch alone, aerospace companies need an estimated $12 million worth of this substance.

Considering there have been over 100 of these launches in 2021 already, those numbers can add up quickly.

But it's not just space travel that depends on this gas - it's everything across the tech world.

The element is required to make the semiconductors you find in everything from electric toothbrushes to multi-ton automobiles.

It helps cool the data centers the Big Tech giants rely on to keep their servers running for their millions of customers.

It even powers the internet itself, as you can't produce the fiber optic cables without this rare gas.

That's why it's so concerning seeing headlines like one from the New York Times that reads,“The Global Helium Shortage is Real.”

Demand for helium is spiking at an incredible rate today.

.

The bottom line is that Big Tech needs helium more than ever, and that makes this commodity potentially more valuable than any other around when it comes to our tech-powered world.

And as the largest supplier is now phasing out of the market, that's created a once-in-a- lifetime opportunity for public companies like Avanti Energy Inc. ( TSX:AVN.V ; OTCMKTS:ARGYF ).

 With their upcoming drilling phase set to begin, this could be just the beginning.

Which is why all eyes are turning to Avanti after they just signed the contract to begin drilling in their upcoming project, set to start just weeks from now in early December.

Here are 3 reasons why you should be paying attention to Avanti Energy Inc. ( TSX:AVN.V ; OTCMKTS:ARGYF ) in the days ahead:

1 - The Team Behind the Last Great Oil and Gas Discovery

The Montney Formation in Western Canada is one of the biggest natural gas discoveries in recent history.

The gas there makes up around 45% of Western Canada's gas supply. But that number is expected to climb to 65% by 2030.

In the past year, the Montney has seen at least 9 significant deals that add up to roughly C$2.3 billion, and that's thanks in large part to the $10 billion titan, Encana (now Ovintiv).

Now, several key figures from Encana that left the oil and gas giant, have joined a small helium exploration company in Avanti.

.

As this all-star team now plows ahead at Avanti, it's turning heads across the industry.

Plus, in addition to the leadership team coming in with world-class experience…

They've added two key geologists with over 50 years of combined experience to help prove up their next project.

It's almost unheard of to see a team with direct experience developing multi-billion dollar projects landing with a company with a market cap around $70 million.

That would suggest Avanti Energy ( TSX:AVN.V ; OTCMKTS:ARGYF ) may be onto something big with their upcoming project, especially when you pay attention to how the leadership team is preparing for their upcoming drill program.

CEO Chris Bakker has bought over $500,000 worth of Avanti stock at up to TWICE the price it's trading at today (i.e. as high as $2.91 per share in May).

Now he's started buying up shares again just as the announcement came last week that they're set to begin drilling at their new property.

We'll have to wait until sometime early in the New Year to hear news of the results, but signs like these suggest that where there's smoke, there could soon be fire.

2 - The Next Big Billion Dollar Discovery?

In keying in on their upcoming project, Avanti's team did an incredible amount of due diligence.



 

Avanti Energy ( TSX:AVN.V ; OTCMKTS:ARGYF ) has estimated an undiscovered, unrisked resource potential could fall somewhere between 1.4 billion and 8.9 billion cubic feet of helium.

But while most of their competitors get caught up in the total potential or a project's“showing,” Avanti's experienced team uses a different system to see where the potential truly lies.

They focus on the pressure and how accessible the gas is, looking at a rate of recoverable helium per day.

Fortunately, in addition to all the promising 3D seismic data they've obtained this fall, they have something that could be even more exciting.

Looking less than 10 km up the road, Avanti's nearby competitor gives us a sneak peek as they're already hard at work on structures very similar to what Avanti has in the Greater Knappen.

.

When you add that up at $150 per 1,000 cubic feet, that means roughly $3 million in revenue each year.

Since these structures could produce helium at that rate for 5 years, and even continue producing at a lesser rate for another 10 years, those numbers add up quickly…

Especially considering if all goes to plan.

3 - The Tidal Wave of Catalysts is Approaching

Things are finally starting to heat up at Avanti's property as they're set to begin an initial 3 well drilling program on their property in the coming weeks.

 

Test results from the first well could break sometime just after the New Year.

But as Avanti Energy Inc. ( TSX:AVN.V ; OTCMKTS:ARGYF ) plans to tick off another new well each month through May, there's hope for a wave of steady news and exciting catalysts continuing over at least the next 6 months.

And while they're starting with these 3 wells, , which means that could be just the start.

This all-star team has experience and a track record that could push the potential to significant highs.

Now, with Big Tech's future success potentially dependent on another huge helium discovery, eyes are set on Avanti and the news that could be coming just weeks from today.

From helium and hydrogen to lithium and beyond, here are a few more companies to keep an eye on in the months to come:

Air Products & Chemicals (NYSE:APD) has been at the forefront of global hydrogen production for years. They recognize that this clean alternative fuel can help make an impactful dent in boosting our country's green energy initiatives as well as reducing carbon emissions across industries by decreasing reliance on fossil fuels like coal and petroleum products, etc., which Air Product's own extensive experience with helping others achieve sustainability goals through chemical innovation will bring about even more progress than before

Air Products and Chemicals has well over 60 years of experience producing hydrogen, and more than two decades designing fueling stations. It's SmartFuel stations have been deployed across the globe and support a number of different unique and interesting transportation applications. The fully-integrated stations include compression, storage and dispensing systems that have proven to be safe and reliable for its customers. Though Air Products has been around for some time, the $66 billion company has had a particularly strong year in 2021 thanks to the growing interest in Hydrogen applications.

Dow Chemical Company (NYSE:DOW) is an American multinational chemical corporation headquartered in Midland, Michigan with over a century in operation. This company has been called 'the chemical companies' chemical company' as its sales are to other industries rather than directly to end-use consumers and it employs around 54 thousand people worldwide. Along with being one of the three largest producers of chemicals in the world, they also make plastics, agricultural products and more.

George Kehler, Dow's commercial manager for Fuels and Energy, notes,“One of Dow's options to develop a diverse portfolio to power our facilities is to produce energy off the grid through cogeneration, as well as having renewables become an increasingly more important part of the mix”

Dow is also teaming up with GM to produce hydrogen for fuel cells and reduce their reliance on natural gas. Dow produces chemicals that help the environment as well as plastics, which can be used in everyday items like water bottles or cell phones; but now they're looking into something more than just a single product line! In addition to reducing costs by using another company's resource (hydrogen), this partnership will also provide clean energy while making it easier - these two companies are committed not only toward improving our technological future...but extending it so we never run out!

Linde plc (NYSE:LIN) i has been in the business of manufacturing and distributing gas for over 130 years, making it one of THE oldest companies still operating today! It was founded by Carl von Linde who invented an improved process for liquefying air. Today they have customers all around the world including hospitals (especially ones that use anesthesia), petrochemical plants, steel mills – you name it; if there's anywhere with a demand on atmospheric gases then likely someone at this factory can help meet those needs.

Linde is also involved in engineering. Linde Engineering designs and builds large-scale chemical plants for the production of industrial gases including oxygen, nitrogen, argon, hydrogen and carbon monoxide. These chemicals are used in a variety of industries from food to medicine manufacturing as well as other places like welding or gas appliances. The engineering division also develops process plants that use technologies related to natural gas processing so they can provide energy efficient solutions for their customers around the globe who want safe operations with minimal environmental impact

The company is currently looking forward into new projects such as renewable energies where it will be developing an innovative solar project combining steam power generation technology (SPG) with thermal storage modules. The 130 year old industry giant might not have some of the incredible upside potential of newer companies in the space, but that doesn't mean it's not worth keeping an eye on as the renewable revolution kicks into its next stages.

Xcel Energy Inc. (NASDAQ:XEL) is a leading electricity and natural gas utility that services 3 million customers in Minnesota, Michigan, North Dakota South Dakota Wisconsin Colorado Texas New Mexico among others with nearly 9KMW for its wind projects on top of another 1 600MW coming from solar generation plans over the next couple years which has increased 4x since 2011 making them one of America's fastest growing utilities while they also plan an increase by as much 50 percent more soon!

Xcel Energy operates one of the biggest and fastest-growing investor-owned transmission systems with more than 20,000 miles of transmission lines across 10 states. Xcel has a goal to invest $24.3 billion through 2025 to expand its operations, with 25% of that earmarked to expand its transmission business to help support increased renewable energy deployment. One of the company's top projects is the proposed Colorado Pathway Transmission expansion that will see the company invest up to $1.7 billion to build 560 miles of new transmission lines to support 5.5 gigawatts of new renewable power generation.

Maxar Technologies (NYSE:MAXR, TSX:MAXR) is an aerospace and defense company that was founded in 2003. They have a variety of services, including satellite development, space robotics, and earth observations. One of their most well-known products is the Canadarm2 robotic arm for the International Space Station (ISS). The ISS has been operational since 1998 with more than 100 missions to date. Maxar Technologies has had a history of partnering with NASA to maintain the ISS's systems as well as providing them with new technologies such as the Canadarm2 robotic arm. is a moon-bound tech stock to keep an eye on. While space firm specializes in satellite and communication technologies, it is also a manufacturer of infrastructure required for in-orbit satellite services, Earth observation and more. 

More importantly, however, Maxar's subsidiary, SSL, a designer and manufacturer of satellites used by government and commercial enterprises, has pioneered research in electric propulsion systems, lithium-ion power systems and the use of advanced composites on commercial satellites. These innovations are key because they allow satellites to spend more time in orbit, reducing costs and increasing efficiency.

Thanks to Maxar's incredible tech and innovative approach to the already extremely complicated space industry, the company has seen its share price climb where many of its peers have struggled.

Polaris Infrastructure () Is a Toronto-based renewable energy giant with a global footprint. The company's biggest projects are in Latin America. It's Nicaragua geothermal project, for example, is already producing over 77 MW of renewable electricity. And in Peru, its El Carmen and 8 de Augusto power plants, is set to produce a combined 17MW of electricity in the near future.

Turquoise Hill Resources Ltd. () is a key player in Canada's resource and mineral industry. It is a major producer of coal and zinc, two resources with distinctly different futures. While headlines are already touting the end of coal, zinc is a mineral that will play a key role in the future of energy for years and years to come.

In addition to its zinc operations, Turquoise Hill is also a significant producer of Uranium. Uranium is a key material in the production of nuclear energy, which many analysts are suggesting could be a major component in the global transition to cleaner energy. While the mineral has not seen significant price action in recent years, there are a number of new projects set to come online across the globe in the medium term, which could be a boon to Turquoise Hill, especially as alternative energies gain traction in the marketplace.
