Dragon Victory International Limited [NASDAQ:LYL] has been gaining quite strongly over the past month and does not seem to be slowing down. In yesterday’s trading session, the stock rallied and closed the day with gains of 47%.

Similarly, the desire by entrepreneurs to come up with new companies aimed at solving various issues in different markets. In essence, the increased upside of the Chinese economy post pandemic is likely to see this stock gain in value as entrepreneurs envisage long-term profitability.
