NEW YORK, Jan. 21, 2020 /CNW/ -- OTC Markets Group Inc. (OTCQX: OTCM), operator of the OTCQX®, OTCQB® and Pink® financial markets for 10,000 U.S. and global securities, today announced the 2020 OTCQX® Best 50, a ranking of the top-performing OTCQX companies in the prior calendar year.  

The OTCQX Best 50 is an annual ranking of the top 50 U.S. and international companies traded on the OTCQX Best Market, based on an equal weighting of one-year total return and average daily dollar volume growth.

"We congratulate the 2020 OTCQX Best 50 companies on achieving this recognition," said Jason Paltrowitz, EVP, Corporate Services. "This year's roster of industry leaders demonstrates the breadth, depth and diversity of companies represented on OTCQX.
