- Early-Stage NASDAQ Listed Fintech Holdings Company looks like it has Plenty of Room for Share Price Appreciation.
- All-in-One Financial Trading Platform Focused on Chinese Investors.
- Wide Spectrum of Trading Options for Affluent Clients via High Tech Apps.
- New Acquisition of Fintech Trading Group Crypto Asset Licensed in Dubai serving the Middle East.

In January UP Fintech Holding Limited (NASDAQ: TIGR) also known as Tiger Brokers, climbed over 98% with little news from the company. However, this gain may be reflective of new awareness for the emerging value in Fintech oriented companies by market investors. Only about 4% of this stock is owned by institutions. This could indicate the company is still relatively undiscovered by Wall Street. The company is being called the “Robinhood of China,” with revenues growing dramatically as the business plan expands.
Another stand-out example in the Fintech sector is Futu Holdings Limited (NASDAQ: FUTU) where analysts have now forecasted a major upgrade. The analysts have significantly increased their revenue projections for 2021. The market seems to agree with the stock almost tripling from late December to hitting new highs in January.
Now let’s take a look at what could be the next big winner in this hot 2021 market trend, and at a much easier entry price level for the average stock buyer. This is Lion Group Holding Ltd. (NASDAQ: LGHL) which operates an all-in-one trading platform that offers a wide spectrum of products and services with a focus on Chinese investors. Through its state-of-the-art technology, LGHL offers contract-for-difference (CFD) trading, insurance brokerage, futures brokerage, and securities brokerage on its platform, which can be accessed through applications available on the iOS, Android, Windows, and macOS systems. LGHL customers are well-educated and affluent Chinese individual investors residing both inside and outside the PRC as well as institutional clients in Hong Kong.
