• Technically the stock has broken down with pricing falling through a stop-loss cascade to find support some 60% lower from peak pricing a month ago, this could be a good buying opportunity into a previous growth hot shot.

Growth Focus: POLYNOVO LIMITED (PNV)
The primary focus is capital gain - stocks are selected from the ASX Top 500 All Ordinaries Index.
When investors get their fingers burned during adverse market conditions it can induce a psychological aversion to making further investments, and while this seems like simple common sense, it can also limit the ability to make the best out of a bad situation. Instead what we are looking to pick up previously strong, sector-leading companies with excellent growth prospects, bringing us unironically to Polynovo Ltd, as burns-care specialist begins its recovery after falling more than 60% since last month, but retains strong forecasting and excellent growth potential.
Australian-based biotechnology company Polynovo designs, develops and produces medical solutions for burns, hernia and other orthopedic applications, using its patented biodegradable polymer; NovoSorb. These products can be used for drug transfer, antimicrobial protection, and accelerating wound healing, are available in various formats like films, foams and coatings. NovoSorb is able to be applied within a matrix to physically close wounds, being applicable to even full-thickness burns, encouraging fresh dermal layer growth before the matrix degrades revealing new natural skin.
The company remains early-stage in so far that it is not expected to turn cash flow positive until next year, but this company is advancing fast. Reporting shows strong growth with sales revenue almost doubling in the last year, with this same robust sales expansionary trend seen since 2016 – and is expected to continue through to 2022. This kind of strength attracts favourable attention and we can see this reflected in the strong majority positive analyst sentiment and almost 60% discount to consensus price targets.
The company retains a good cash position as it approaches its crossover to positive earnings, and is engaged in a rapid product rollout with sales teams and facilities being built and expanded across Australia, New Zealand, Asia, the US and Europe. All of these markets are only just opening up and there remain opportunities for expansion internally within the stated regions, as well as externally through the many other global markets yet to be approached.
The price action of recent weeks looks as expected and is dominated by a cliff-drop selling collapse beginning late last month before cutting values in half before finding deep price support, and has rallied back up to minor resistance around $1.50. We expect it to test higher towards the major resistance structure around $2.00, with plenty of further targets above, stretching back towards old highs past the $3.00 ceiling. Right now we see good momentum in the short-term and if we are right it could be a good time to have some fake skin in the game.
