The 2022 OTCQX Best 50 – the top 50 performers on the OTCQX of the prior year – traded an aggregate of $594 million in average daily dollar volume in 2021, marking roughly a 383% increase from the respective $123 million in 2020.

According to OTC Markets Group Inc.’s OTCM latest announcement, the companies delivered a median total return of 81% to investors in 2021.

North American-based companies from Canada and the United States, such as Enzon Pharmaceuticals, Inc. ENZN, Unrivaled Brands, Inc. UNRV, and Corning Natural Gas Holding Corporation CNIG, made up a majority of the list. Also represented were international companies from Euronext Amsterdam, the Hong Kong Stock Exchange, and the Australian Securities Exchange (ASX).

The constituents of the 2022 OTCQX Best 50 also exhibited relative diversity in their initiatives. Top-performer Nanalysis Scientific Corp. NSCIF, for example, develops and manufactures nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) devices. NSCIF shares the “top 50” designation with Wow Unlimited Media Inc. WOWMF, an animation and entertainment company, Taal Distributed Technology Inc. TAALF, an enterprise blockchain processing company, and Indiva Ltd. NDVAF, a cannabis producer.

Adding to the diversity, a number of energy-driven securities make the 2022 OTCQX Best 50, as well as the three community banks: GrandSouth Bancorporation GRRB, SVB&T Corp. SVBT, and Coastal Carolina Bancshares Inc. CCNB.
