GTEC Holdings (GTEC.C) CEO locks down the future, thumps chest on Twitter

GTEC Holdings (GTEC.C) is a company we’ve written about a lot, a BC-based cannabis grower that laid out a business model of multiple small licensed grow facilities, hitting the premium artisan weed market. Their products are great, their costs are low, and they’ve never yet benefited from the irrational weed booms of the ’15, ’16, and ’17 years because they were late to get those licenses.
This means, they’ve experienced all the weed industry dives, but none of the runs. Their stock price: $0.09, good for a market cap of just $11 million.

Green Organic Dutchman (TGOD.T) drops fat quarterly loss, underwhelming revenues

No company in the Canadian cannabis space polarizes people like Green Organic Dutchman (TGOD.T), which roared to the public markets on perhaps the biggest promote yet seen, raised nine-digit totals along the way, swept in more first time private placement participants than any company before them, and then did… well… nothing, for a long time. With top brass having been walked recently and plans to super-size the company grow facilities shelved in the wake of underwhelming need for more weed, TGOD has made no secret it is at a moment of recalibration, but investors will have expected to see more than this.

Did Aytu BioScience (AYTU.Q) just SpankChain the NASDAQ?

When a sector gets hot, small cap stocks can often get a bump by sidling up to the hot sector with a new product/idea/opportunity. When the dust clears, the intrinsic value of the new offering is typically deemed to be low. We saw it in 3D-printing, with Dung Beetle Treats. We saw it in weed with a $1 billion website that forgot to sell cannabis. We saw it in blockchain with a Cryptocoin for porno transactions.

Shroom stocks go nuts: First movers SHRM, MMED, RVV up hard as gamblers gamble

Today was a day that daytraders have been looking forward to for some time; the day that shroom stocks finally gripped the road and took off. Mind Medicine (MMED.E) ripped 90% to $0.77 on the back of 15m shares traded, reminding anyone who’d listen that ex-Canopy CEO Bruce Linton and pretend billionaire Kevin O’Leary were on board. Champignon Brands (SHRM.C) zoomed 40% to $0.33 on a lot smaller market awareness spend byt a handy ticker, Roadman Investments (LITT.V) was up 30% to $0.065 being sucked along in the other two companies’ wake, and Revive Therapeutics (RVV.C) was up 81% to $0.10 on ripples caused by the rest.

Heritage Cannabis (CANN.C) loses $2.3 million in Q4, finds extra year of runway as revenues kick in

A quick scan of headlines today would tell a harrowing story that Heritage Cannabis (CANN.C) was in big trouble and had lost $13 million and pandemonium had broken loose, and dogs and cats were going to be living together any time now. That’s because the company led their Q4 financials news release today with their yearly metrics filling the headlines, while their not-so-rough quarterly numbers were largely and inexplicably hidden from view.

CloudMD (DOC.C): Perhaps this might be a good time to talk about investing in telemedicine

As happens whenever a global crisis hits, there are plenty of investors currently watching the global Coronavirus outbreak and looking to panic sell. There are also a few looking to capitalize on the opportunities found in potential doom. Like folks who buy gun stocks whenever a military conflict breaks out, or those who buy gold as a safe haven when the world’s leaders engage in a game of ‘Armageddon chicken.’ a pandemic brings about macroeconomic changes that can be utilised to make money.

Invictus MD Strategies (GENE.V) kicked off Venture Exchange after screwing up everything for three years straight

Invictus MD Strategies (GENE.V) announced tonight that, in accordance with its efforts to work through creditor protection proceedings, it has been kicked off the Venture Exchange. On the upside, if Invictus’ history of going back on news releases is anything to go by, we’ll receive another release inside ten days that the bankruptcy proceedings have been cancelled and they’ll continue on as usual. Because that’s how it’s always been for Invictus, which has the worst track record in Canada’s cannabis space for announcing things, only to un-announce them very shortly after.

2020 Gravitas Securities Growth Conference lines up seriously interesting deals, even in weed

Respect where it’s due, I haven’t been to an investor conference in a long time where I came away interested in most of what I saw, let alone *everything* I saw, but this year’s Gravitas Securities Growth Conference lineup absolutely hit it out of the park. The GSGC isn’t the biggest show around, but they know how to turn out the playahs, and the only way you keep big money showing up is to be a little bit picky with what you offer them. Don’t waste anyone’s time and they’ll know it’s cool to return.

Wayland Group (WAYL.C) selling once hyped foreign assets for pennies on the dollar

As part of an ongoing process to deal with its bankruptcy, Wayland Group (WAYL.C) is dispensing with several foreign assets that were once touted as being amazing international opportunities, and it’s doing so at prices you can afford. The courts have granted approval for WAYL to get rid of its Colombian subsidiary, Colmed Pharmaceuticals, which was purchased in an all paper deal for 11 million shares a little over a year ago. Who’s buying it? It turns out, one of the companies that originally sold it to them, RG5 Investments.

If the cannabis industry is desperate for capital, time to bet on the guys with capital

With a little over and hour left in the year 2019, past 10PM on December 31, I saw a news release from James E. Wagner Cultivation (JWCA.V) about a small $2 million loan they’d taken out. The timing of the announcement of their loan was surely not coincidental. Actually, thinking about it, ‘payday loan’ might be the more appropriate term to have used. JVCA took out a debenture financing of $2 million at an interest rate of 25% annually. That’s just the first tranche of the deal; there’s another $8 million out there if they want it. My credit card, abused as it has been, costs me less interest to maintain than JWCA’s loan.

1933 Industries (TGIF.C) blows up, jumps 35% preceding California harvest announcement

You’ve gotta love it when a plan comes together: 1933 Industries (TGIF.C), which has been banging the same ‘we’re grownups, we’re doing it right, hang tight’ drum for several years now, dropped news this February 14 that will make any Valentine’s heart swell with joy. “Following the completion of a combined 20,000-square-foot expanded cultivation, extraction, manufacturing and distribution facility in the Los Angeles area, the company began harvesting its first cannabis crop this week to be utilized for both its proprietary brand Alternative Medicine Association (AMA), as well as for its licensing partner luxury brand Blonde cannabis, with products earmarked for dispensaries for the first time outside of Nevada.”

Fire in the hole: Supreme Cannabis (FIRE.T) drops rough financials as expected, transition afoot

Ontario-based Supreme Cannabis (FIRE.T) released its Q2 2020 financials today and there were few surprises contained in its pages, bar perhaps the size of the quarterly loss. At a $17.3 million net loss after taxes (and a $10.4 million loss in adjusted EBITDA terms), FIRE shares fell in value below the $0.40 mark it’s been hovering around for some time, a 5% drop in real terms. Previous quarters had seen smaller losses, even come close to break even. But even the rosiest-eyed fanboy would have expected these numbers to be rough, considering the CEO change and staff layoffs announced earlier in the year.  We predicted as much a week ago.

Powell: “Nothing about this expansion that is unstable”

Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell said that the Fed is keeping a close eye on the possible fallout and impact of the coronavirus outbreak in China. Powell hasn’t made any claims yet as to what this means either in terms of possible liquidity injections or a rate cut. Let’s examine that.

Hold your FIRE: Supreme Cannabis (FIRE.T) lays off staff in bid for balance sheet superiority

Large Canadian cannabis licensed producer Supreme Cannabis (FIRE.T) told the markets they’re laying off around 30% of their staff today, days before their next quarterly financials are released and with the dust still settling after their recent CEO change. To the casual observer, this might appear to be a sign of desperation, that the sky is falling in Kincardine, Ontario, and the owner of the esteemed 7 Acres brand was making some sort of last ditch effort to stave off Armageddon. It ain’t that.

There’s no place like home: 3D Sustainable Developments prints an answer to the global housing crisis

Canada more than doubles the Indian subcontinent in terms of land mass, but its population of 37.59 million is a 2.8% sliver of India’s 1.3 billion – that’s 4 people per square kilometre compared to 420. Interestingly, both India and Canada are in the middle of a serious housing crisis that threatens to break the spine of India’s economic miracle and stab at the heart of Canada’s social stability. Will anyone be able to save us from this fate before it’s too late?
