Investing in public graphene stocks

Graphene is a one-atom-thick sheet of carbon atoms arranged in a honeycomb (hexagons or chicken-wire) crystal lattice. Graphene is the world's strongest and most conductive material, and no wonder that researchers and professionals looked into graphene's potential across many applications, including sensors, batteries, conductors, displays, electronics, energy generation, medicine and more.

The commercialization of graphene is just in its infancy, but already dozens of new companies have been established to develop graphene based materials, applications, graphene production processes and other related activities.

There are many companies directly involved with graphene. Most of these companies are either private early stage companies or large companies in which graphene is just one business segment, but some pure-play graphene companies are public. Below we will list some potential graphene stocks for investors that wish to take part in the graphene revolution. For a more in-depth analysis of the possibility of investing in graphene, and a complete public companies listing, see our Graphene Investment Guide.

Pure-play graphene companies

In the past few years several graphene producers and graphene application developers started trading in stock exchanges around the world - mostly in Australia, Canada and the UK. Here we'll list some of those companies:

Versarien LogoVersarien (AIM:VRS) is an advanced materials group leveraging proprietary technology to create innovative engineering solutions for its clients in a diverse range of industries - focusing on graphene materials.

Haydale logoHaydale (AIM:HAYD) is a UK-based supplier of functionalized graphene and related technologies. Haydale is mostly involved with graphene composite solutions and graphene-based inks. In 2016 Haydale acquired ACMC, a US-based silicon carbide whisker manufacturer.

G6 Materials logo imageG6 Materials (TSX: GGG), formerly known as Graphene 3D Lab, focuses on development of high-performance graphene-enhanced materials.

Other graphene investment options

Several large and public companies (such as Samsung, Intel, Nokia, IBM and Sony) are involved in graphene research. These companies may be on the forefront of graphene research - especially in high-end fields such as electronics and photonics - but graphene, even if successful, will probably represent a small portion of their business.

Another option is to invest in graphene production equipment. Aixtron SE, for example, is a provider of deposition equipment to the semiconductor industry who offers CVD graphene production systems. Aixtron trades in the NASDAQ (ticker:AIXG). US-based CVD Equipment Corporation also offers graphene R&D and production equipment. CVD Equipment trades in the NASDAQ (ticker: CVV).

Evercloak's HVAC technology gets government funding boost

Canada-based Evercloak's HVAC technology recently received a funding boost, with CAD$1.1 million (over USD$807,000) in funding from Natural Resources Canada's Energy Innovation Program (EIP).

The EIP funding supports a $1.8M project enabling Evercloak to accelerate the development of their membrane-based system, which can cut the energy required for air conditioning and dehumidification by up to 50%. According to the Company's founder and CEO, Evelyn Allen, those reductions will be crucial as global temperatures rise.

Graphene-Info releases a new edition of its Graphene Investment Guide

Today we published a new edition of our Graphene Investment Guide, with all the latest information and financial updates from public graphene companies. This is still a challenging time for many graphene companies - and also for graphene investors. Almost all the 23 public graphene companies we track show their share price decline in the past year. 

It is a time of consolidation in the industry - and investors should be careful when looking at early stage graphene companies. Most graphene companies struggle to generate meaningful revenues, and we expect consolidation and liquidation to continue in the next few years.

The Graphene Investment Guide includes:

  • An introduction to graphene
  • An overview of graphene's most exciting applications
  • An analysis of graphene's potential
  • Market forecasts from leading analysts
  • Detailed descriptions and financials of all public graphene companies
  • Over 80 financial reports and company presentations (premium edition only)
  • Graphene-Info's own investment thesis and action plan

Any technology-driven investor that wishes to stay current on the most promising new nanotechnology should look into this report. The report includes extensive data and information needed to launch a successful strategic graphene investment portfolio.
