Investors are in business for one reason- value appreciation.
And whether those gains come from large or small-cap stocks, at the
end of the day, it’s the numbers that count. One under-the-radar
company appears to be doing everything right and is on track to add
to its 149% gains made last year. In fact, this company is not your
ordinary OTC Pink sheet stock. No, iQSTEL, Inc (OTC
Pink: IQST) is much different. And, with its
record-breaking $44.9 million in revenues last year, is now on pace
to deliver upwards of $60.5 million in sales this year.
Better still, IQST targets massive billion-dollar industries.
And through innovation, the leveraging of valuable patents, and
creating new products that meet unmet demand, the opportunities in
play during the remainder of 2021 can be substantial.
iQSTEL Delivered $44.9 Million In 2020
The excellent news is that iQSTEL, Inc. is starting 2021 with
momentum after an enormous growth spurt in 2020. Audited financials
last week confirmed revenues of $44.9 million. Better still, this
international telecommunications company is showing no signs of
Guidance for 2021 is to reach $60.5 million in sales, with
revenues coming from four of its business divisions-
Telecommunications, Technology, Fintech, and Blockchain. The
inherent diversification allows IQST to target massive underserved
international telecommunications markets, utilize its patents and
technological expertise to develop innovative products, provide
Visa Debit Card services to emerging markets, and help companies
implement blockchain technology into their business strategies. The
great news is that each division contributes revenue to the mix,
which could accelerate IQST growth.
Moreover, IQST is consolidating its seven operating subsidiaries
under one name, which is expected to increase already solid margins
and complement a strong balance sheet. That initiative could be
another substantial value driver in 2021.

Debt-Free And Generating Substantial
Unlike most of its peers, IQST is generating revenues that
immediately impact growth. Last year, IQST implemented a plan to
eliminate debt- and they were successful. As of Q1 FY-2021, the
company is debt-free and has no convertible notes, warrants, or
settlements. That allows IQST to invest all available funds from
operations and Reg A, further strengthening its balance sheet and
growing the company. In its 10-K summary, filed last week, IQST
said it expects to see improvement in its consolidated Statement of
Operations and Balance Sheet throughout the remainder of 2021. That
statement is credible.
Keep in mind that despite 2020 being an unprecedented
pandemic-related challenge to most international companies, IQST
was able to deliver remarkable growth of more than 149%
year-over-year. To put that increase in a better perspective,
revenues surged from just $18 million in FY-2019 to $44.9 million
in FY-202. And 2021 sales are expected to jump another 34%.
Notably, the revenue growth caused a 70% reduction in its loss
per share to $(0.10) in FY-2020 versus $(0.35) in FY-2019. The
increase this year could put positive earnings into play. And that
could help facilitate its planned uplist to NASDAQ and attract
institutional money. Also notable is that IQST increased its assets
to $5.9 Million in FY-2020 compared to $5.6 Million last year due
to an increase in its cash position.
The company also reduced Current Liabilities by 29%
year-over-year and Total Liabilities by 27%. The expected
announcement of its Q1 revenues in May could show the benefit from
reaching these financial milestones.
Of course, it’s the business that’s driving growth. There, its
innovations, strategies, and recent partnerships are creating a
wave of momentum.
Record-Setting Expectations In 2021
The recent weakness in share price is exposing a massive
opportunity. On a revenue multiple basis alone, the stock should be
valued substantially higher. Many attribute the volatility to being
on the OTC Pink market, and that could indeed be the case.
Certainly, more orderly markets take into account modeled
valuations, using metrics that would likely value IQST shares
closer to its February high of $2.00.
Its strengthened balance sheet, increased assets, and reduced
liabilities are reflective of the company’s direction. And, with
revenues on track to reach its $60.5 million 2021 forecast, prices
at these levels should not last. Factoring in its deals with at
least one Fortune 500 company, its partnerships to expand into the
electric vehicle sector, and its money-saving subsidiary
consolidation, IQST is in hyper-growth mode through a number of
In fact, in April, IQST is expected to commence its commercial
launch of the MNPA Blockchain platform, initiate the first stage
field test of the IoTSmartTank, and accelerate its initiatives to
establish a footing in the booming electric vehicle sector in a
deal with Alternet Systems, Inc. (OTC:ALYI).
That will be followed up in May and June with expected
production of its IoTSmartTank technology for a Fortune 500
chemical client, the launch of its Fintech, Visa Debit Card
product, VisaMoneyOne, and the highly anticipated quarterly
financial results that are expected to benefit from the
implementation of new operational efficiencies.
Also in play, IQST is taking steps to earn its NASDAQ listing
during the first half of this year and is expected to continue with
plans to complete accretive acquisitions that could drive revenues
Perhaps the best news is that IQST has the management team,
experience, and business infrastructure in place to reach its
immediate and long-term goals. Thus, its market cap of $54 million
last week appears to be comically low, especially with the company
on pace to exceed $60 million in revenues and supported by a clean
While not there yet, investors should look at competitors Atento
3.86%, who’s presence in 13 countries has earned them a
market cap of roughly $354 million. Or at America Movil,
0.07% with a market cap of $48 billion. Long-term
speculation suggests that, despite its current size, IQST can also
build out its markets in successful fashion. If so, expect the
market cap to earn a substantial boost…likely in the hundreds of
millions of dollars.
A Breakout Year In Progress
Undoubtedly, investors could be witnessing the start of a
breakout year. Record revenues, substantial partnerships, accretive
acquisitions, and a business presence in 15 countries make IQST
extremely attractive on multiple levels. And with at least three
important announcements expected in the coming weeks, the current
share price should earn a raise.
Even now, though, providing a revenues-based premium to its
share price is not only appropriate but is well-earned by the
company. Also, keep in mind the stock is priced for appreciation
from announcements from any of its four operating divisions. But,
with news expected from all, the combination of events could send
the stock exponentially higher this quarter.
Thus, trading ahead of expected news could be a wise
consideration. iQSTEL, Inc. may not stay under-the-radar for much
