Very interesting. Currently has a dividend yield of 11% with a healthy balance sheet and dividends are covered by earnings. Would be very interested in investing in this on Freetrade.



I have just read the AIM Megathread on here and discovered it is highly unlikely it will be added due to AIM exchange not being a priority for Freetrade without sufficient support from the community so I have provided some pictures of stock information and if any of you would like to see this on Freetrade perhaps enough votes will sway this.

Yes, can we please get this added Freetrade?

Steppe Cement (LSE: STCM) makes cement in Kazakhstan. And it trades on a forward price-to-earnings growth (PEG) ratio of 0.2. A reminder that a stock trading on a reading of below 1 could be considered to be undervalued by the market, or so goes conventional investing theory.

This penny stock’s low valuation is created by broker expectations that earnings will rise 53% year-on-year in 2021. I don’t think that this penny stock is just a flash in the pan, either. As a provider of essential building materials it’s well placed to ride the construction boom in the Eurasian country.

As the OECD notes, around three-quarters of Kazakhstan’s transport infrastructure needs to be replaced or repaired. The Kazakh government is also taking steps to aggressively tackle the nation’s housing shortage, something that will require massive amounts of cement. It plans to build 103m square metres of housing in the next five years, it was announced back in April.

Steppe Cement’s latest financials showed revenues soar almost a quarter year-on-year in the first half of 2021. Volumes rose 10% from the same 2020 period, while the average cement price jumped 11% to 19,814 tenge per tonne. The company said that cement demand in the country leapt 25% between January and June.

With respect, adding loads of appealing information is unlikely to help your cause. No matter how many times a stock request is bumped by new posts, the rules Freetrade use to decide whether or not they’ll add something won’t change.
