Audio Pixels Holdings Ltd: Do you know this $580 million company that’s up 33% in a week?

Audio Pixels Holdings Ltd (ASX: AKP) is a $580 million company which many investors may never have heard of despite the stock gaining close to 200% in the past five years.

The group’s share price gain over the past five years puts the stock ahead of much more widely followed growth shares including:

SEEK Limited (ASX: SEK) – up about 140%

Cochlear Limited (ASX: COH) – up approximately 60%

Carsales.Com Ltd (ASX: CAR) up around 170%

Despite an impressive track record of share price appreciation, perhaps this week’s 33% gain will be the catalyst for more investors to familiarise themselves with this cutting-edge technology company…

For many years now, Audio Pixels has been involved in the development and commercialisation of digital speakers. These speakers employ techniques which have the potential to dramatically change not just the quality of sound but also the size of speakers. In fact, the digital speakers of the future could be absolutely miniature yet provide outstanding audio quality.

While the company remains at the pre-revenue stage, Audio Pixels appears to be getting closer to commercialisation. According to a recent company presentation, there is no direct competition on the horizon and it is now in the final phase of “productisation”.

While there is no guarantee of success and there are certainly high expectations already built into the current share price, there is also the potential for the stock to be worth a lot more if its revolutionary digital speakers gain traction and capture a significant share of the speaker market.
