Limners & Bards IC TOP 10 stock

Limners and Bards the latest IPO to hit the market, made it to the Junior Market TOP 10 with the potential to double in price, notwithstanding the critical information that is missing from the prospectus.
Jamaica Broilers returns to the main market list as Grace Kennedy graduated with a rise in the stock price. AMG Packaging released nine months results that showed 28 percent rise in pretax profit for the third quarter but that was not good enough. Earnings for the 2019/20 fiscal year, were downgraded to 20 cents per share. That level of earnings was not good enough to keep it in the TOP 10 list.

The three most attractive Junior Market stocks are, Iron Rock with gains of 243 percent, followed by Caribbean Producers with projected gains of 233 percent and tTech with possible gains of 191 percent.
Sterling Investments heads the main market with 179 percent potential gains followed by Radio Jamaica with expected gains of 173 percent and Sygnus Credit Investments in third spot with the potential to gain 154 percent by March next year.
