Another Day Another $DOLLAR…or Thousand(s)!

I missed Monday but what can I say, it’s been friggin’ BUSY in the markets.  Whoever said sell in May and go away obviously hates making money because day after day there seems to be a brand new unicorn trade…or at least the beginning of a multi-day unicorn.  Today I absolutely killed it with SPHS, which I entered on Friday and made sure to mention it in detail.  Entry into this one was confirmed Friday afternoon after I had stalked the crap out of it for most of the day.  My entry was a little high for that day but after holding into Tuesday, I have no complaints!  Highs of $8.55…YES PLEASE and thanks to a nice liquid market, my average price on the exit was great at $8.17.

As far as the other Friday trades, CLNT topped out at $1.80 again Tuesday so I probably could have gotten out of it on Friday.  I’m still content here with modest gains but out of the market there (for now).  It’s gotten real choppy so until I can ID a consistent pattern, I’m gunna shy away…again…for now.

ZFGN I’m still long on and progress in the market isn’t as aggressive but I’m fine with that.  I don’t need to monitory this one every second…more like every minute so the $2.99 entry isn’t doing too bad for me right now with ZFGN sitting around $3.10.  My hope with this trade is that the gap down from a few weeks ago starts to fill and I feel like a news catalyst would be good here. The company focuses on obesity and has early Phase Trials going on.

As far as NFEC, NSPR, WHLR, or GDEE go, I missed the quick spike on NFEC and I’m happy I did because the stock consolidated for now and I’m watching to see if it goes any lower or back to that previous support it was trading at before the jump. NSPR was the same and honestly this one…just in my opinion…may not have a whole lot of percentage potential on a single day.  The shares structure is pretty large including the float. If you look at a candlestick chart you will notice like I did, NSPR only moved from $0.1946 to about $0.22 the day it traded almost 16million shares.  What could that mean?  Well in my mind if it took that many shares to see just a small increase, how much will it really take to see the kind of gains I really want?  But…I’ll keep it on watch for now. WHLR I need one more day to watch but the chart is really looking good in my opinion.  It’s climbed steadily and no major red days to speak of (yet).  GDEE, a previous promotion, is still trending at the bottom of its chart and if there is no promotion, organic market momentum could be something excited as a potential catalyst.  Again..still on watch.

So What Else?

Well, today’s trades were VERY EXCITING and an old time long of mine is going bonkers right now.  I entered at about $0.84 a few months back, exited the majority of my position late last month and ended up re-entering again at the beginning of this month.  I took profit because I wanted to get some cash free in my account to make new trades but if I didn’t do that, my total position would be awesome right now.  Either way I’m not unhappy whatsoever…What’s the symbol?  EBIO of course and my @SobeDayTraders Instagram post shows exactly the entry.

When I have time, I’ll pretty up my posts and put em up on Instagram but lately the market’s been soo busy, I just haven’t had time…I will try to do better (my twitter is more active).

ALIM was another trade I went long on today.  I probably should have sold the majority of my position but I’m taking a gamble on an overnight hold.  The chart held itself together all afternoon so I’m hoping to see another leg to this climb. They just came off of a record second quarter and could have been the spark to this move today.

My only day trade today was also pretty amazing. KOOL was something I was looking at and probably should have gotten into yesterday afternoon but I just didn’t think it would hold the trend.  “Listen to your Gut Small Cap!” Anyway, this morning I decided to tuck my nuts up and just go for it during the first hour and a half of the trading day.  I pulled off a $4.75 entry  and managed to grab a decent gain on a $6.16 exit from most of my position right when it started to pull-back the second time during the afternoon.

Most likely I’ll keep it on watch during the post market hours because even though it did consolidate this afternoon, I saw no real catalyst to this type of “All Day Move”…someone know something I don’t?  So I may take another toe dip tomorrow and add to what I have left as a very small core…we’ll see.  I like speculative plays but I also really like high risk 🙂

WGBS I may have been a bit pre-mature here but I ended up grabbing a small position right at a Buck this morning.  It’s pulled back a little bit but overall I really like the daily chart on this.  Volume is building and price is maintaining a bullish direction. The crazy part is that they haven’t had news in quite a long time so I’m wondering if anything is rumored here.  If anyone has any spec on this one, leave something in the comments for me.

My shining star this week, however, has been INNV.  I know you shouldn’t fall in love with stocks…and I’m not saying I do…but the chart and volume on this one have both been amazing.  My entry was right at the open on Monday so my base is solid at $0.455 and I’ve only taken a small haircut from my position, taking profit on a quarter of my whole position when INNV hit $0.64.  There’s a lot of speculation on the pending results of their FDA submission and from what I’ve seen they are supposed to find results sometime between here and September.

Screen Shot 2016-07-26 at 4.28.01 PM

Either way, it could be exciting so I’ll most likely trade around my core until something out of the ordinary (research report, way above average volume, or something along those lines) happens.  I’ve got a good core so I’m setting an initial stop at $0.54 (just in case I take my eyes off the screen and something happens). I also saw a promotion on it as well and it looks like whatever size of that network, it looks active so thanks for the awareness haha! I also shamelessly plugged the article from Friday because…why not pound the chest a little…It was a “Great F*cking Friday” lol.

Well, that’s all I have for now.  Keep up the great work and everyone who’s sending me DM’s keep em coming.  I’m all about interacting with everyone following along…AND REMEMBER:

What’s there to say today? Earlier this morning I tweaked some things on a few of the scanners that I built on the E*Trade Pro platform and long story short, I caught some of the biggest swings in price than I have ever hit in a long time.  Usually the scanners, how they were set up, would catch on DURING a move and I’d miss out on some serious profit.  Not even money left on the table but simple money not PUT on the table at all.

Needless to say, today has been phenomenal and usually I’m more of a swing trader than anything.  Today though, my day trade skills were tested as well as the new scan set-up I put together.  Even though I risked a decent amount of money, it was all in the name of learning and trying to stream line what already has been working.  So what was today like?

Ended up taking a long position in ZFGN.  Haven’t really read up on the company yet but what I have done is analyze the chart set-up.  Lately there has been a pretty successful trend of finding Gap Down charts and playing the speculation.  Miss most of the downside after it finds bottom and if we see some speculative trading like today, my outlook is simply based on the idea that there have been a TON of biotech stocks that have had a similar pattern and enough spec on “future” potential of their drug therapies has been enough to ignite a decent run.  Obviously I’m taking HUGE caution here because as speculation goes, I could also lose big too. (more details to follow in the coming days)

Screen Shot 2016-07-22 at 12.31.33 PM

A couple things that hit my scanner before 11AM and GBR is the one I ended up jumping on earlier in the morning.  I try to keep my tweets as active as my trades but sometimes it’s difficult.  In any case GBR entry was at $3.04when the stock was seeing a lot of above average volume while also holding a sideways pattern.  My hopes were that there was enough short interest to catch a squeeze and sure enough that’s what I think we saw.  GBR ended up hitting a high of $5.13.  I wasn’t lucky enough to get out at the high but a $4.40 exit after it started to pull-back isn’t too shabby in my book either 🙂  As far as INVT, I never entered the trade.  It was way too volatile for me and rightfully so it has ended up coming down in price.  KONE was something I traded yesterday on some monster momentum and wished I had held out a little more for an overnight hold.  Unfortunately my balls are THAT big so I took a 45% gain on it intra-day on Thursday LOL.

CLNT was another great trade so far today.  I took a shot at it with a small starter at $1.30 and still holding (as of 12:38PM EST).  I’ll keep a close eye on this during the afternoon and if I reeeaaaaly like what I see, I may overnight hold here.  NFEC I have on watch.  The daily chart looks good to me and I’m hoping to see a confirmation of a new bull trend.  Kaikin Ashi (or however you spell it) chart shows a bullish undertone so for now it’s on my watchlist for a swing.  NSPR is the same as NFEC.  I’m not in it but again the daily chart looks a lot better over the last two days, there haven’t been any crazy moves like GBR or XCOM on an intra-day level so this may be as simple as a bottom bull play. And as far as OPGN goes, I thought about trading this today but the intra-day chart has consolidated on me before I could make a decision to react.  I would probably be in the red by a little bit had I taken the plunge so right now it joins the party with NFEC and NSPR on my watchlist

SPHS is a bit of a different story because it has had an AWESOME day so far with really nice volume that has taken the stock from about $3.90 to $4.60 and is now trading kinda sideways.  If you look at the DAILY chart though (slideshow above) I notice that even though volume is a little light compared to the explosion it saw a few days ago, the stock is continuing to increase steadily in price.  For me this is still a watch BUT depending on what the afternoon looks like and possibly what Monday (7.25) looks like, this may be something I bring home with me for a few days.  I will be watching to see if it retraces back to the 20MA (yellow line) or if it can establish a new channel a bit higher that the 20 to potentially retrace back to.

LPTN is another one on the list.  We’re starting to see an uptick in volume while price has just started to increase.  In my opinion, just like CBYL….just like MRNS, this could be the early signs for a reversal in my opinion. So for now, LPTN is on watch.

Other than these, I’m watching a few others that have charts that  I feel could indicate some kind of promotion or at the very least, “nudged continuation trend” WHLR, GDEE, and CJJD:

This slideshow requires JavaScript.


They’ve got these chart patterns and volume indications that I like to see when I’m targeting a swing.  Quiet to moderate volume, consistent price movement on a gradual basis, and testing technical end points like Moving Averages and historic Support/Resistance lines. That’s all I’ve got right now. If you come across this article and want to follow me live, head to twitter and follow @MrSmallCap a/k/a  Small Cap Reporter…and if you wanna be really awesome, share this and get your friends to follow the twitter handle.  Have a great weekend!

Why Should Investors Be Paying Attention To Software As A Service? International Business Machines Corp. (NYSE:IBM), Oracle Corporation (NYSE:ORCL), Iddriven Inc (OTCMKTS:IDDR), & Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT

Global “Software as a Service” (SaaS) revenue is expected to increase more than 20% year over year to a whopping $106 billion in 2016 according to Goldman Sachs, with North America accounting for a significant share of the market as they prove a widespread use of SaaS apps across a variety of verticals. The dynamics of the company create opportunities for small, agile companies to build their market share and expand. International markets, though, may see the highest growth rates moving forward. SaaS security applications enable IT to eliminate a good deal of on-premises hardware and software. This facilitates the process by cutting out the need for a big upfront investment right off the bat. We’ll discuss how companies like International Business Machines Corp. (NYSE:IBM)Oracle Corporation (NYSE:ORCL), Iddriven Inc (OTCMKTS:IDDR), and Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT).

Implementing SaaS also takes away the need for unnecessary upgrades and new implementations. Instead, all the hardware and software are managed by your security SaaS provider, behind the scenes. Others aim to completely take over the end-to-end management of your applications and data. According to a 2016 report on the state of SaaS-based security, 1,400 have popped up in the past five years alone, with subscriptions for IT, business intelligence, enterprise vertical applications and SaaS-based security continuing on a rise.

Software as a Service has grown to become the latest trend within the business world, making buying and installing programs onto a computer a thing of the past. Given the growth of this software licensing and delivery model, it is important to get a grip on what is trending. As of 2016, according to, 81 percent of the surveyed companies got a maximum of 20 percent of new revenue from existing customers in the form of upselling and expansion sales. SaaS companies with a faster growth have better results in terms of churn and upsell, a trend that has been concluded accurately over the past two years. Over 50% of companies surveyed in a recent MarketsandMarkets research report assigned the biggest portion of their budget for customer retention costs, with an increasing focus on the ideas of focusing on building teams rather than on developing their infrastructure.

The SaaS market is still in its infancy and proves to hold maximum potential for future growth as businesses move towards a cloud-based system. Public markets are currently valuing SaaS businesses at about 4.5 times run rate revenue. The identity and access management (IAM) market are expected to grow from USD 7.20 Billion in 2015 to USD 12.78 Billion by 2020, at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 12.2% during the forecast period, according to the same MarketsandMarkets survey. Growing emphasis on management, increasing mobility trends, telecommunications, public, and critical infrastructure sectors are the main drivers driving the growth in identity and access management market.

SaaS is becoming increasingly popular, and as the industry develops, more and more companies are dropping their traditional business models and moving in favor of these new technology solutions. One of the benefits of the SaaS model are that it is easier to administrate, all users will have the same version of the software because updates will be done automatically, and therefore collaboration will be made easier.

Also, it will grant global accessibility, making remote work models easier, which helps in reducing costs as well as in improving performance. As more and more SaaS products are integrating marketplace dynamics into their business models, the prevalence of these products is becoming a necessity for further expansion of their companies. Instead of companies installing software on their own servers, software providers host the software at theirs and charge them according to the time they spent using it, for a simple monthly fee. Identity Access Management is a framework for business processes that facilitates the management of electronic identities. The framework includes the technology needed to support identity management. This technology can be utilized to initiate, capture, and manage user identities and their related access permissions in an automated manner.

Thus, this ensures that access privileges are granted according to one interpretation of policy and all individuals and services are properly authenticated and authorized. With the ever-evolving business environment, it can become difficult to keep track of as employees migrate through different roles in an organization, while also managing identity and access. While North America had captured the largest market share in 2015 for IAM, Asia-Pacific is the fastest growing region in terms of CAGR. Factors that affect a company’s decisions to switch to the innovative cloud-based business model for IAM solutions are increasing internet usage, compliance regulation, and mobile usage.

An increasing number of enterprises and industries are spearheading the technology implementation in terms of mobility, cloud computing, hosting services for a variety of sources, leading to increased customer base and internet users, leading to the surge necessity for IAM solutions. Currently, companies like International Business Machines Corp. (NYSE:IBM)Oracle Corporation (NYSE:ORCL)Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT), and Dell make up a significant portion of the identity and access management sector, building off of the “Software as a Service” mentality. Smaller companies have also entered the space at a time when the mergers and acquisitions climate is beginning to heat up. Companies like Iddriven Inc (OTCMKTS:IDDR) and CRM are competing for the lion’s share in the market, providing innovative solutions for day-to-day business environments. Specifically, IDdriven has recently been building its international footprint through new, leading channel partnerships that will allow for further integration of IDdriven’s IDaaS solution with Microsoft’s Identity Manager Software, thanks to interface software funded and developed by companies like Oxford Computer Group.

The trends are in favor for Identity Access Management as well as SaaS solutions, and the global surge towards a cloud-based business environment facilitates the market growth for these solutions. The new, integrated next-generation identity management platforms provide breakthrough scalability with an industry-leading suite of identity management solutions. According to an IDC study, SaaS delivery will significantly outpace traditional software product delivery, growing nearly five times faster than the traditional software market and becoming a significant driver for functional software markets.

Forecasts hold a positive outlook for these solutions, pointing to future successes, with new developments and improvements being made daily for a competitive advantage on the market. The future bodes well for SaaS and IAM solutions, with opportunities for growth as more companies move towards cloud-based environments.

$PGSC Progressive Green Solutions (OTCMKTS:PGSC) Grabbing Big Gains On Light Volume Early On Wednesday

Why Progressive Green Solutions (PGSC) is Well Positioned to Drive Shareholder Value Through Reverse Logistics

Some of the largest retailers and shippers in the business utilize reverse logistics (“RL”) to capitalize on returned items and sell these goods in a secondary market. Items that are not brand new and ones that have never been used are procured through returns or even from stores like Sears (SHLD) and Macy’s (M) to create revenue from items that were once discarded or simply liquidated at extremely low prices. According to former Best Buy CMO Barry Judge, “Secondary market electronics sales represent an estimated $15B market in the United States.” So we know this is a huge market secondary or not.

Many Fortune 500 companies like GE (GE), Amazon (AMZN) and Ebay (EBAY) are taking full advantage of what some used to call a mistake. According to a quote by Dan Eisenhuth, executive vice president for asset recovery at GENCO Distribution System, “Retailers used to liquidate to Compensate for ‘screw-ups.’ Today they do it to stay fresh.”  

How “Fresh” is Selling Damaged and Refurbished Goods?  

To put things into perspective, the value of U.S. remanufactured production grew by 15 percent to at least $43.0 billion, supporting 180,000 full-time U.S. jobs in 2011, according to the US International Trade Commission. There is no doubt that the market is getting bigger and with the DOW hitting 18,000+, new companies are sure to emerge as secondary market consumer electronic distributors and secondary appliance distributors.

The average consumer saves close to 30% for an item that has a small ding from the show room or for a scratch from moving it off a truck. For example, consumers spent $998 on average per person in 2011 for electronics and that would have been roughly a $300 savings. With more and more people spending their money wisely and with these items being “as good as new” the industry as a whole has blossomed into a great investment opportunity.

PGSC: Undiscovered Company Beginning to Increase its Footprint…Quietly

Take a look at potentially undervalued company, Progressive Green Solutions, Inc. (PGSC).  This company is deeply seeded into reverse logistics and boasts some strong numbers in its financials.  The first 6 months alone show revenues nearly hit $1million every quarter with a 20% gross margin. Total cash on hand was just over half a million dollars and total current assets nearly topped out at $2million after the close of its second quarter.   More importantly, the company has already begun streamlining operations.

First it was able to decrease COGS by adopting the capitalization of direct labor and packaging costs.  Second, the company realized an increase in gross revenue attributed to greater availability of inventory for sale and an addition to the sales team late in June 2014.  Finally, Progressive saw an increase in gross margin due mostly to a new supply chain of air conditioners (out of all potential products that could bump up numbers).  It will be interesting to see how this next quarter unfolds especially as the company continues to grow.

Due to the nature of its operational structure, Progressive has begun setting itself apart by not only focusing on building strong inventories but also enhancing how direct laborers (the “boots on the ground”) are fulfilling orders.  This is a crucial piece in the revenue model believe it or not. If operations suffer because of employees working inefficiently, the bottom line could greatly suffer.  PGSC has engaged this model to generate more revenue, increase inventories (the lifeblood to RL), decrease cost, and increase margins all within the first 2 quarters of doing business under this model.

Market Value

Right now reverse logistics has gained the attention of some of the big organizations in the retail spot and with the size of the market, a smaller player even grabbing a 5% market share could see impressive revenue numbers with shareholders reaping the benefits.  Even if you take 1% market share of a $43B industry, a company would be roughly generating $430M a year in annual revenue. For PGSC, a $430M revenue number would put this stock around $3.75 currently it’s trading at $0.70 leaving over 500% in potentially upside if Progressive’s stock ran to those highs.

As a more familiar industry, (if you aren’t up on your air-conditioning market facts) the Mobile phone industry sold about 1.2 B phones world wide last year and the return rate for that 1.2 billion was about 8% according to the Recovering Lost Profits by Improving Reverse Logistics report commissioned by UPS and written by Curtis Greve and Jerry Davis. That means that there were roughly 96 Million phones that were refurbished and then sold on the secondary market. At an average resell price of $82.50 there are certainly those who are profiting handsomely from the 7.9B that’s generated by the resale of these secondary market.


Reverse logistics is a relatively new industry having its humble beginning back in the 70’s with dry stored items being shipped to grocery stores who wanted to max their profits and not take such devastating losses. Little did the clerks and fork-lift operators know at the time that their screw ups would ultimately be a defined and studied billon dollar industry; now there could be an incredible opportunity right in front of us to take advantage of such a growing market.  Progressive Green Solutions has found an underserved niche and has continued to grow quarter over quarter as it continues to streamline its operations and feed the fire through adding to its inventories.  Simply based on its growth and revenue potential alone, this could be an incredibly undervalued company and a reason to look closely at the company especially as the third quarter is coming to a close and a new fourth quarter will be underway for the Holiday Season.

Current Market Value is Roughly $80M.  430/80 =5.375 multiple


Moko Social Media ($MOKO) Gains Attention After Latest Quarterly Review

MOKO Social Media Ltd. (NASDAQ:MOKO) is a social media digital and mobile apps platform used to compliment social media giants such as Facebook (NASDAQ:FB). The company buzz is picking up as it just released news reviewing their quarterly highlights, and MOKO extends their contract with the IMLeagues, which is used as a mobile app for Colleges and Universities’ intramural sport leagues.

The finalized structured deal between MOKO and the IMLeagues is crucial from the company’s view. By building their exclusive control of the mobile information and App rights, MOKO’s administration with IML is protected. The company can now dedicate more outlets in teaming up with IML to continue the growth of REC*ITs efficiency and further define themselves within the upper echelon of our nation’s college sports and recreation forum. MOKO is already being contacted by other media and tech businesses, as well as rights management groups, which are devoted to breaking new ground on ways to work with MOKO to achieve this “want” for the university student demographic. The new agreement with the IMLeagues also helps get rid of some obstacles and will bring initiative to expand REC*IT further than it’s current scope. This will allow MOKO to go after other deals that focus on student activities on campus and other community and adult sports and leisure management. The company is planning to release a statement pertaining to this topic in the near future.

MOKO’s Political Team is growing, its’ reach is steadily expanding and their belief is the partnership with the Netroots Nation event is a firm sign that BNR is beginning to be noticed as a major contender in digital media all throughout political areas.

One of MOKO’s goals they have stated is reaching no less than 10 million Monthly Active Users by the conclusion of 2015. Also with some of the developments mentioned above the company is speeding up its activity to achieve this goal. At the end of January, MOKO was able to attain just over 5 million MAU’s and they look to expand this during the current quarter as they release REC*IT and Speakiesy. The company’s cash burn is within their budgeted projections as they expect to receive a $1 million this quarter as MOKO’s R&D rebate. They have acknowledged and stabilized the crucial senior personnel and they are about bulk up there executive team anticipated for the next month or so.

#Superbowl of Stocks: Coming to the #OTCQB and The Year of $OXIS Continues

Coming to the OTCQB, 2015 the Year of $OXIS Continues

Oxis International (OTCQB:OXIS) has had quite the year. Right after the new year OXIS announced patent licensing for Multiple Myeloma treatments, as well as releasing press of Dr. James J Mulé to the scientific advisory board. The cherry on the sundae, so to speak, may have come last week with the announcement of OXIS being up-listed to the OTCQB.

Unless you’re new to the small cap or micro cap game, this probably isn’t the first time you’ve heard about a company getting “up-listed” and it certainly won’t be the last. Many people don’t really understand the importance of up-listing and how it can be a real game changer for the company.

There are many advantages for a company that gets up-listed but as with all good things, there are some disadvantages too. Let’s take a take a look at both sides of the coin.

Some of the advantages to a stock getting up-listed include:

  1. Exposure to more favorable financing options
  2. Increased investor confidence due to reporting requirements of the exchange
    1. IE companies need to identify an accurate share structure, list the law firm responsible for handling the company’s annual report(s), etc.
  3. Minimum prices per share will be maintained due to the requirements of the exchange
    1. For OTCQB, companies need to meet an ongoing minimum bid price test of $0.01 as of the close of business for at least one of every 30 calendar days
  4. A heightened sense of corporate responsibility by way of additional reporting by companies regarding information on officers, directors, and controlling shareholders.

If you are an investor with your eye on a company, like OXIS, that is moving up to another exchange, those are just a few of the positive things, among others.

Of course, there are also negative things to be warry of. If the company is struggling financially, coming up with the $10,000 (minimum) annual fee and one time application fee of $2,500 to upgrade to the OTCQB, could mean even more hardship for the company. Not to mention, if the company currently is already trading on the line of the minimum, it could end up having a hard time meeting the minimum price lives that are required of a company on the OTCQB.

But for those doing their DD, if the company is making the jump “the QB”, you would hope as an investor, that the company wouldn’t make that big jump if they didn’t have all their ducks in a row. For investors, the upside is, if a company they are watching is making that jump, chances are a certain level of transparency

Should exist with the company and in turn can become a strong focus for investors.


Playing with the Big Boys

Moving up can be a definite game changer for the future of a company. Establishing transparency is key in maintaining confidence of investors. Being able to have a clear picture of the financial situation of a company is one of the most important things to making smart investing decisions. And for some companies, if things go well on the OTCQB, they set their sights on the NASQAQ or NYSE!

Hopefully a Happy Ending


In conclusion, there are a host of ways a company can attract investors. From hitting today’s social media market, to hiring of a professional investor relations firm, the ultimate outcome depends on the financial health and transparency of the company in question.

Top Trading #MarijuanaStocks Hitting The Radar On January 14

“Marijuana Market Watch For Wednesday January 14th”

Attention on marijuana stocks has begun to increase since uncertainty last year during midterm elections spawned a consolidation period just before the close of the year. As the new outlook for 2015 became more positive for companies in the sector, the January effect has had its way with many of these stocks and several continue to see new highs. With major investment coming into the industry, there’s no doubt that this will continue to be a topic of interest in the coming year. Just recently Paypal co-founder Peter Thiel invested in the marijuana industry through a minority stake in Privateer Holdings (through his own fund, The Founders Fund). Seemingly the marijuana industry’s biggest investor thus far has created a domino effect within the public markets, giving more confidence to otherwise prudent investors.

Oxis Inernational Inc (OTC:OXIS) recently announced that it had executed a worldwide exclusive patent licensing for certain assets for the treatment of Multiple Myeloma and initiated a consulting agreement with University of Pittsburgh’s Professor, Dr. Xiang-Qun(Sean)Xie. Dr. Xie is one of the foremost cannabinoid research scientists in the world and boasts a track record of success that’s a mile long. The license agreement provides Oxis Biotech, Inc an exclusive worldwide license to develop and commercialize therapies for the treatment of Multiple Myeloma.

Over the last 10 days, OXIS has managed to reach two major and very important milestones, which may have been cause of so much market attention building around this company. They went from caveat emptor status on OTCMarkets to a Current PinkSheet after getting all of the filings up to date. Furthermore Oxis entered into this recent licensing agreement. Since mid-December not only has the stock been on a very consistent upward trend but it has also seen highs of nearly $0.04; coming up from lows of just over a penny.

Advanced Cannabis Solutions (OTC: CANN) is a service provider to businesses in the cannabis industry. Recently the company announced that it has signed a Master Services Agreement with New York based Spector Group, one of the nation’s leading architecture, interior design and master planning firms, for the build out of its multi-tenant office building in Denver, to be known as “The Greenhouse.” Robert Frichtel, Chief Executive Officer of ACS, commented, “We are very glad to have Spector Group come on board with this project. As an established and highly experienced firm, we are confident that Spector will bring our vision of The Greenhouse to life quickly and with a minimum of difficulty.”

Over the last 2 weeks, Advanced Cannabis has been on a warpath for big gains. The stock opened the year at $1 and has since jumped more than 400% to highs on Tuesday of $4.50. Similar to Oxis just a few weeks ago, Advanced Cannabis is reporting a Caveat Emptor status on OTC Markets.



United Cannabis Corporation (CNAB) has also come across the radar of many marijuana stock investors. This month the company announced that it has signed a consulting and licensing agreement with FoxBarry Farms, LLC, whereby FoxBarry will be the exclusive licensee and distributor of United Cannabis branded medical marijuana products in the State of California.

FoxBarry has earmarked $30 million to fund all phases of the California state-wide program. The Company will receive $200,000 in prepaid royalties for exclusive licensing rights in the State of California and the first location will be located in Northern California; operations are expected to begin in the next 30-45 days. During the matter of a few days, United Cannabis’ stock price has been on a bull run. Since opening the year around $0.70, this stock has seen an increase in volume and a jump in price by roughly 91% in the matter of just a few weeks. Sentiment remains high (no pun intended) across the marijuana sector and these companies have garnered more interest from traders and investors alike.

Marijuana Will Be the Single Best Investment Idea of the Next Decade

Marijuana Will Be the Single Best Investment Idea of the Next Decade

Marijuana Will Be the Single Best Investment Idea of the Next Decade

Call it a drug trade for investors. Todd Harrison, CEO and founder of Internet-based financial media company MInyanville, thinks cannabis “will be the single best investment idea for the next ten years.”

But while the public has watched recreational marijuana take off in Colorado this year, how can they profit from it as an investment theme?

Harrison believes it will be driven by the broader legalization of marijuana, inspired by states’ need for tax revenue. He points to expectations that legal marijuana use is expected to generate $134 million in tax revenue for the upcoming fiscal year in Colorado, the first state to allow recreational marijuana. That’s nothing to sneeze at, and Harrison calls the state the “litmus test” for broader legalization. Harrison also cites the expected decline in crime rates and prison populations as powerful incentives to decriminalize marijuana.

The New York Times reports that half the states in the U.S., including some in the conservative South, are currently considering decriminalization of the drug or legalizing it for medical or recreational use. Oregon and Alaska are the likeliest to legalize pot next year. Twenty states now permit the use of medical marijuana now, while Colorado and Washington have legalized it for recreational use.

The legal marijuana market is estimated to grow 64% to $2.34 billion in 2014 from $1.44 billion, according to a recent report by the cannabis investment and research firm Arcview Group.
