How Small Caps can Increase their Share Price by up to 30% in 90 Days

Small Caps are under-researched, under-invested, and under-valued. They are too small for the large investment banks and fund managers to deploy their expensive resources.

There is always an opportunity to add value in small caps due to poor analyst coverage, which leads to poor market pricing efficiency meaning many are undervalued.

Therefore, it is crucial that small cap companies are proactive in increasing their profile via marketing and public relations.  It is not enough to rely on investor relations.

Small cap companies must actively promote themselves to the investment community, potential shareholders and the general business community.

A media relations campaign targeting major high profile Australian and international publications will have a a major impact on considerably increasing a small caps share price.

Specialist agency Small Caps PR, www.smallcapspr.com,  has worked with many Australian small caps and has released findings from research undertaken on 50 Australian small caps over three months.

The research analysed 50 Australian small caps which were separated into three groups.  Group one undertook a media relations campaign where they were featured in high profile financial and business publications.

Group two focused on social media including Linkedin, Facebook, Twitter and shares forums such as Hot Copper and Share Café.

Group three didn’t undertake any marketing campaign.

The results were as anticipated with Group One which undertook a media campaign increasing their share price by an average of 25 per cent and a number of the group increased to 30 per cent.

Group two which utilised social media had an average increase in share price of 18 per cent during the campaign.

Group three which did not undertake any type of marketing campaign during the six months had little or no increase company share price.

Group one and two increased their profile and reputation, creating a strong brand.

Our analysis shows that companies that own what we define as a strong brand have consistently higher share prices and are less affected by stock market turbulence.” states principal Louise Elyse

It has been demonstrated in research studies that a good corporate reputation, considered an intangible asset, brings considerable benefits to a small cap company.

According to Forbes Magazine intangible assets account for as much as 75% of a public company’s market capitalisation.

Research indicates that positive perception of a company by the broader public can result in at least four favorable outcomes: lower cost of capital, an ability to attract new investors, increased market capitalisation and stronger resistance to volatility.
