Stock Market Manager: Weekly Update 12.11.17

Posted By Administration, Tuesday, December 12, 2017

Weekly Update: December 11, 2017

Happy Holidays!!!

Hope everyone has been following our research this year, you’d have some pretty spiffy looking brokerage account statement to put under the tree !!

We’ll publish results in the Black Swan newsletter this month.

Latest Happenings

More three wheel car deals!! 

Not sure we need more but at least I believe the premise behind Acrimoto (FUV) makes sense. All Electric fun vehicle that offers more utility than a motorbike and ease of driving opens up a much bigger market. Not trying to be a 3 wheel car with a last century gas motor like Elio and at a price that seems to make sense.

Arcimoto defines the Fun Utility Vehicle category, delivering a thrilling ride experience, exceptional maneuverability, full comfort for two passengers with gear, optimal urban parkability, and ultra-efficient operation, at an affordable target base model price of $11,900. Check it out  

No toys under the tree for the underwriter though. Stock came public at $6.50 and before they could recover from the champagne hangovers it is already at $2.97,  pretty ugly. We’ll keep you posted. Market is saying the valuation was way to high. I’m guessing it’ll level off at say $1.00 or so with a $20 million market cap, which if they can get production happening that will make sense and then upward again if they can execute on the sales side.

THE HOLIDAYS ARE PRIME-TIME FOR IDENTITY THIEVES

Luckily, we have you and your customers covered. 

Because this time of year is known for increased travel, increased spending, and an increased desire to give, consumers face an increased risk of identity theft.

HolidayScamCover-252940-edited.jpg

Our new e-book developed in partnership with the Identity Theft Resource Center, "Preventing Holiday Identity Theft Scams", fresh off the presses, is an easy guide to some of the most common identity threats seen during the season. It makes great shareable content and can help demonstrate your identity protection education commitment to your customers.

How to Protect Yourself

While data breaches represent highly public examples of identity theft, identity fraud with its long term, time-consuming financial impacts, can occur months or years later. Our Identity Protection program provided by Generali Global Assistance consistently monitors the deep and dark web where stolen personal information is bought and sold, so that if suspicious activity does occur, we can take quick action to minimize the risk and resolve any issues.

To learn more about how you can protect your identity for less than $12.00/month, click here.

 

Nobody cares about my football contest so that is being discontinued. I’ll keep my $50 bucks for holiday cocktails.

Reg A Update

Another new listing OTC for Iconsumer (ICCMP).

It hasn’t traded yet and has a funky share structure deal. We’ll see what happens. Keep you posted. Click here
 

Elio Motors
Price has broken the $4.00 mark and sliding down to $3.50 this week. Got a long ways to go yet since this still pegs it with $100 market cap.

Better get what you can before it’s zero, put a little more rum in your eggnog and hide the brokerage statement from Mom. It’s gonna be a lot uglier before it’s over, just a question of when.

Do Not Pass Go

Volkswagen US Official Convicted In Emissions Scam

Volkswagen ADR (VLKAY). Volkswagen is the largest automobile manufacturer in Europe. Their activities focus on the automotive market and they offer products and services along the entire automotive value chain. With nine independent brands, they are able to offer a unique range of models from the extremely efficient 3-litre car to the great sporting tradition of Bentley. While each of the brands has a distinct personality, it also benefits from its membership of the Volkswagen Group with its global manufacturing base

Volkswagen has recovered nicely--in share price terms--from their horrible emissions scandal. To recap, the company was caught installing defeat devices in its popular diesel vehicles in the US and elsewhere. The cars, sold as a "green
alternative to traditional gasoline vehicles which had the added bonus of running on cheaper diesel-based fuels, turned into a nightmare for the company and owners once savvy university researchers noticed that their emissions figures came nowhere near those claimed by the company.

However, the fallout from this case continues. This week, high-ranking US Volkswagen executive Otto Schmidt, a German citizen and the general manager of Volkswagen's engineering and environmental office, was sentenced to seven years in prison and fined $400k for violating the Clean Air Act and for participating in a conspiracy to defraud the federal government of the United States. 

Schmidt may end up being the fall guy here, because Germany will not extradite other officials to face justice. The US only caught him because he was dumb enough to fly to Miami for a family vacation. He was key in the scam however, as he lied to US officials once they became suspicious an began investigating the defeat devices. So far, only one other employee has faced justice--and that person was a lower-ranking engineer.

Despite the bad press, the fines, the costly recalls, and all the rest, VW has rebounded nicely since this scandal. We had a SELL or STRNG SELL on the company for a while, but, as of now our models currently rate the company a BUY.

ValuEngine continues its BUY recommendation on Volkswagen ADR for 2017-12-06. Based on the information we have gathered and our resulting research, we feel that Volkswagen ADR has the probability to OUTPERFORM average market performance for the next year. The company exhibits ATTRACTIVE Company Size and P/E Ratio.

Stock Market Manager Weekly Update: November 27th, 2017

Posted By Administration, Wednesday, December 6, 2017

http://www.smm.global/graphics/logo.png

Weekly Update: November 27 2017

Hoping everyone had a Happy Thanksgiving!

Last week was pretty quiet on the financial front so aside from wrangling over the AT & T deal there isn’t much new.

Latest Happenings-

Ohhhh there is one thing………..  Tesla

Tesla announces new Semi-Truck.   I don’t buy it at least not at a $318 stock price. They are claiming that the all-in per mile cost of owning and operating will be less than a traditional Diesel truck. We’ll see. Much More detail on the road forward for tesla trucks in our upcoming Black Swan Newsletter

If it is even close this could be a game changer.

Don’t get me wrong, I love the company and what they are trying to do, it’s just way ahead of where the valuation should be and I believe way ahead of when we’ll see Tesla truck s become a”thing”. I am also, wondering like others, if these seemingly monthly over the top news announcements are just business as usual or to some degree share price window dressing.

Click Here for video>>

ValuEngine Report on tesla-

I didn’t even have this to press yet and our friends at ValueEngine published a nice report on Tesla that basically corroborates my take-
=================

--Semi-Good News
Tesla Gets DHL Deal

Tesla Inc. (TSLA) designs, develops, manufactures, and sells electric vehicles and stationary energy storage products. It operates primarily in the United States, China, Norway and internationally. Tesla Inc., formerly known as Tesla Motors Inc., is headquartered in Palo Alto, California.

We have followed Tesla for a while now, interested by their battery technology and space program, but not so sanguine about their car business, their so-called "hyperloop," or their promises vis-a-vis self-driving vehicles. 

Lately, we have had the uncomfortable nagging sense that the company puts out press releases designed to foster hype, light on substance, in order to bolster their--in our view--wildly over-inflated stock price. We still don't believe that this company is worth more now-- or in the near future, than Ford, GM, etc.

Let’s talk football-

Football Season Contest

(I’m repeating this since no one signed up last week)

C’Mon man nobody wants $50.00 !!

Every week through superbowl we’re giving away $50.00 and at the end of every month a free subscription to the Black Swan Research Subscription (a $399 value)

Last week’s winner is Cheryl Cooper from Lexington, SC and a check for $50.00 is headed her way. Here is her write up on Sweetness:

I wanted to suggest Walter Payton as a subject for your next feature. Known as Sweetness, he was the greatest running back of all time. His story is one of hard work, the willingness to go the extra mile, and talent. Watching him on the football field was a thing of beauty and grace in motion. Watching his life play out he was a humble man who was faced with unfortunate circumstances with his health. He faced those circumstances as he did on the football field, humbly and with grace. Unfortunately his passing was all too soon, but he left behind a legacy filled with sweetness.

Thank you,

Cheryl Cooper

 

Walter Payton a football Life

Well put Cheryl and thank you!

You could be the next winner!

Here is what you have to do:

The holiday season used to be THE story for retailers. However, lately so many retailers are desperate to stay relevant vs online giants such as Amazon that big holiday sales almost seem secondary. For this season we see yet another battle royale shaping up between giants like Wal-Mart and Target on one side, and Amazon.com on the other.

Today's Wall Street Journal notes that the big retailers have adopted a variety of pricing strategies to deal with Amazon this season. Target has changed its emphasis, structuring more sale weekends during the season with less focus on Black Friday. Wal-Mart is offering different prices for online and store items in an effort to lure traffic. Retailers like Best Buy offered Black Friday-like discounts far earlier in November than in prior years.

Dave Lavigne Editor-Black Swan Connection

Reverse Stock Spits- The Good, the Bad … and the Irrelevant

By Dave Lavigne

Recently, one of our coverage companies (Command Center Inc. Symbol: CCNI) announced a 1:12 reverse stock split, which they are doing in conjunction with an intended “uplisting” to a major exchange.  The reverse split is a necessary component to the uplisting because major exchanges require minimum trading prices for the shares before considering the uplisting request. Our sense is that there is some grumbling in the street about the company’s reverse split decision, although the initial impact does not seem to be negative for the stock all things considered (they announced numbers recently as well).  I voiced my support for the reverse on the company’s earnings call largely because I think reverse stock splits are often quite appropriate, even in cases where uplistings are NOT topical.  On the face, reverse splits are an accounting nuance; a not particularly relevant in real terms.  However, I have often argued that reverse splits are a good way to realign a company’s level of business with its capitalization table.  I cover that a bit below.  I any case, the writeup below is one that I prepared for a company that was considering a reverse split, but was hung up on its negative connotation.  My charge was to provide the board of directors with a perspective that could remove the negative veil from the concept, and perhaps allow them to make a decision that in my view improves the transparency of the financial reporting of some companies.  I prepared this overview a little less than a year ago so some of the particulars of the uplisting tables/thresholds may have changed a bit, but I didn’t bother updating those because they are not germane to my main point here, which is that reverse stock splits are often a good idea and they are not detrimental to the value of public shares over any measurable periods of time provided the fundamentals of the company are sound. For the sake of relevance and brevity, the information below does not include the entirety of the document I originally prepared.     Read More

 

Great article on Medical Identity Fraud from Generali Assurance

Medical Identity Fraud – A Risk to Your Health and Wealth

Imagine this scenario: you’re sitting in a doctor’s office with a long-lasting fever after your camping trip. Because it may be an infection from a tick bite, the doctor decides to give you an antibiotic shot. She glances at your records, swabs your arm with alcohol, picks up the syringe and says “this little dose of penicillin should help…” and you interrupt: “wait, I’m allergic to penicillin.” “But, that’s not what your records say… we gave you penicillin last time you were here.”

Frightening? Yes. Impossible? Not at all.

By now, we are all aware that our financial information is a target for identity thieves. But did you know that your medical history and insurance profile are also at risk? Medical identity theft is on the rise and it can not only have crippling effects on your finances but can seriously put your health in jeopardy.

The Medical Identity Fraud Alliance, a group of concerned corporate and non-profit partners,  speculate that over 2 million Americans were put at risk of medical identity theft in 2014, a figure that leaped 22% from previous research. This doesn’t even take into account the nearly 80 million individuals affected by the Anthem data breach in 2015 - the country’s largest healthcare breach.          Read More

How to Protect Yourself

SMM has partnered with Generali Global Assistance to provide the most comprehensive and cost effective ID Theft protection available

While data breaches represent highly public examples of identity theft, identity fraud with its long term, time-consuming financial impacts, can occur months or years later. Our Identity Protection program provided by Generali Global Assistance consistently monitors the deep and dark web where stolen personal information is bought and sold, so that if suspicious activity does occur, we can take quick action to minimize the risk and resolve any issues.

To learn more about how you can protect your identity for less than $12.00/month, click here.

Last week’s winner is Cheryl Cooper from Lexington, SC and a check for $50.00 is headed her way. Here is her write up on Sweetness:

I wanted to suggest Walter Payton as a subject for your next feature. Known as Sweetness, he was the greatest running back of all time. His story is one of hard work, the willingness to go the extra mile, and talent. Watching him on the football field was a thing of beauty and grace in motion. Watching his life play out he was a humble man who was faced with unfortunate circumstances with his health. He faced those circumstances as he did on the football field, humbly and with grace. Unfortunately his passing was all too soon, but he left behind a legacy filled with sweetness.

Thank you,
Cheryl Cooper

Reg A Update

Updates on Reg A +


A nice article in Forbes November 17, 20117 on why a company may want to go the route of a Reg A registration as opposed to the traditional S-1 type of registration:

Level Brands' IPO Lists On The NYSE; How And Why They Switched To Regulation A+

Today Level Brands Inc became the seventh Regulation A+ IPO to complete and the second to list and trade on the NYSE American Exchange. The company raised its maximum of $12 million by selling 2 million shares at $6 each at a pre-money valuation of $35 million. The ticker is NYSE: LEVB

Martin Sumichrast, CEO of Level Brands Inc. said; “We were probably one week away from completing our S-1 IPO when we decided to change direction and make a Reg A+ IPO instead. We felt that with Kathy Ireland's huge affinity group as our focus we would do well to market our offering broadly and provide democratic access to our IPO – unlike the very limited availability that is usual for an S-1. Kathy has always been a disrupter, and she liked this approach." Kathy is Chairman Emeritus and has a significant role in the company. Advantages of Reg A+ over a traditional IPO.

"The ability to go out and market the offering and to talk to investors that Reg A+ provides is a welcome change, " he said.  Read More

SMM Weekly Update November 6th

Posted By Administration, Wednesday, November 8, 2017

Weekly Update: November 6th, 2017

Veterans Day

Veterans day is coming up and hopefully everyone will take a moment to thank the all the Vets and serviceman who risked everything so we can live in freedom. If you haven’t already been watching there is a terrific documentary series on Vietnam on PBS produced by Ken Burns and Lynn Novick. It’s simply excellent and doesn’t take political sides. Just tells it Walter Cronkiteesque like his famous sign off “and that’s the way it is” and lets you make up your own mind.

From Walter’s signoff February 27-1978

We've been too often disappointed by the optimism of the American leaders...

 Both in Vietnam and Washington to have faith any longer in the silver linings they find in the darkest clouds. For it seems now more certain than ever, that the bloody experience of Vietnam is to end in a stalemate. To say that we are closer to victory today is to believe in the face of the evidence, the optimists who have been wrong in the past.

To say that we are mired in stalemate seems the only realistic, if unsatisfactory conclusion. On the off chance that military and political analysts are right, in the next few months we must test the enemy's intentions, in case this is indeed his last big gasp before negotiations.

But it is increasingly clear to this reporter that the only rational way out then will be to negotiate, not as victors, but as an honorable people who lived up to their pledge to defend democracy, and did the best they could.

This is Walter Cronkite. Good night.

After knowing what we now know and new things from this series it’s hard to see how we lived up to even Cronkite’s grim assessment of our failure both to defending democracy and our pledges to our ally.

 I’ll warn you there are parts of this that are gut wrenching. Check it out

Every American should have to watch this. I’ll have more on this in the monthly newsletter.

Latest Happenings-

From analyst Marc Robbins at Catalyst Research on the Black Death- scary stuff!

 

According to Marc’s research we are void of therapies for viral pathogens…..except for the AEMD Hemopurifier.

“I love reading novels by Tim Willocks.  His trilogy, starting with The Religion was not only a book that one could not put down (engrossing!), it was an amazing tour back into the life of a soldier/merchant in the 1500’s. One thing I thought we left back in those times was ‘the Black Death’, the horrible bacterial disease that wiped-out one-third of Europe’s population.

It’s back!

And, in spades.  Over the course of just a couple of weeks, the outbreak in Madagascar has grown 10-fold and is now threatening nine other African countries.  I’ve added just a couple of graphics about the possible progression of this horrible way to die to express the geometric curse a biological outbreak like this can inflect on a country or group of countries.  What is more disheartening is that Bubonic Plague is now being spread through respiration (remember your history: back 500 years ago it was spread via the bites of fleas found on rats.)  The good news is that this disease a bacterial disease and can often be stemmed by antibiotics. 

When discussing Aethlon, we are really thinking about the realm of viral outbreaks—diseases caused by viruses”.  Read More

Let’s talk football-

Packers didn’t look so crisp without star QB Aaron Rodgers but I thought the new kid Brett Hundley actually looked pretty good for one of his first outings.  Lots of armchair criticism but my bet is he’s a rising star. Detroit look out next time.

To celebrate we’re kicking off a Football season contest.

Every week through superbowl we’re giving away $50.00 and at the end of every month a free subscription to the Black Swan Research Subscription (a $399 value)

This week’s winner is Cheryl Cooper from Lexington, SC and a check for $50.00 is headed her way. Here is her write up on Sweetness:

I wanted to suggest Walter Payton as a subject for your next feature. Known as Sweetness, he was the greatest running back of all time. His story is one of hard work, the willingness to go the extra mile, and talent. Watching him on the football field was a thing of beauty and grace in motion. Watching his life play out he was a humble man who was faced with unfortunate circumstances with his health. He faced those circumstances as he did on the football field, humbly and with grace. Unfortunately his passing was all too soon, but he left behind a legacy filled with sweetness.

Thank you,

Cheryl Cooper

Reg A Update

Not much new to report-

Elio Motors-

ELIO is still hanging on at sitting at $4.30 on very low volume and no news. Kind of hanging here at a new low level as the last gaspers pray for redemption. As Kevin on Shark tank says “this is where money goes to die”. Just a matter of when.

SMM Weekly Update October 30th

Posted By Administration, Wednesday, November 1, 2017

http://www.smm.global/graphics/logo.png

Weekly Update: October 30 2017

Latest Happenings

OMG Russia again…….

Well here we go--- finally someone has been indicted in the Russia scandal but in the end appears to have had nothing to do specifically with the Trump Campaign. Charged with lying to the FBI not actually any specific underlying crime.  Who knows where this ends up but for real we’re all losers. The government is once again mired in mud up to it’s proverbial neck and instead of running the country are endlessly occupied in the latest scandal. Rest of the world must be snickering and thinking these high and mighty Americans are as big a mess as anybody. The markets don’t seem to be particularly upset as the S & P only backed off a few points coming off a record high. Big money is not worried about this development and probably already had factored this in and maybe the only ones who really cares are Manafort and Papadopolus.

I watched a while back as one of our “Special Agents” was interviewed saying he was part of a team that spent untold amounts of money and resources trying to affect the elections of foreign countries including Russia and had been for decades. Funny how the media  et al are now all incensed that we should get some of our own medicine. We’ve meddled in foreign elections some 81 times between 1946 and 2000 according to the LA times Check it out

CNN  Oct 30-17 A former Trump campaign foreign policy adviser has pleaded guilty to making a false statement to the FBI after he lied about his interactions with foreign officials close to the Russian government.

In court records unsealed on Monday, the FBI said George Papadopoulos "falsely described his interactions with a certain foreign contact who discussed 'dirt' related to emails" concerning Hillary Clinton.

In addition, former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort and former Trump campaign official Rick Gates surrendered Monday to Justice Department special counsel Robert Mueller.

Gates, 45, is a longtime business associate of Manafort, 68, having worked together since the mid-2000s, and served as his deputy on the campaign. The two were indicted under seal on Friday, a source with direct knowledge of the matter said.

The charges against Manafort and Gates are unrelated to the Trump campaign, but Papadopoulos' guilty plea brings the Mueller probe into actions that occurred during the 2016 campaign.

To celebrate we’re kicking off a Football season contest.

This week’s pick is Hall of Famer Dan Marino. Still holds dozens of records and under the great coaching of Don Shula led the Dolphins to 10 playoffs despite never winning a Super Bowl. 1984 season threw 48 touchdown passes and still holds that record. His dad delivered newspapers and of course he was very talented but again shows through hard work you can really make it.

Reg A Update

Below is a synopsis of performance of the now listed Reg A companies.

YogaWorks –YOGA                                                              $2.60 down from a high of $5.85
Elio Motors-ELIO                                                                  $4.38 down from a high of over $40.00
Chicken Soup for the Soul Entertainment –CSSE                 $7.80 down form a high of $13.26
ShiftPixy-PIXY                                                                      $3.43 down form a high of $11.64
Myomo-MYO                                                                         $3.12 down form a high of $23.20
Adomani-ADOM                                                                   $5.20 down form a high of $18.31

 

Gut wrenching to say the least and I am hoping that Reg A deals aren’t tarnished with a brush that paints all Reg A deals are going down the toilet. Maybe it’s a hype reminiscent of the Dot Bomb days that are taking these way beyond rationale values in the early days. Unlike ELIO some of these are very real companies. YOGA is tracking $36 million + in revenue and $3.5 million in cash at June 30-17.

Keep you posted!
 

Elio Motors-

ELIO  is sitting at $4.38 on very low volume and no news. Looks like even the die-hard ELIO believers are starting to sober up. Only news is continuing ridiculous emails about dressing up your car that will never exist. From latest email. Click Here>>

You’re Elio’s Costume!

The Halloween holiday got us to thinking about different ways to “dress up” your Elio. Today we’ll look at how you will be able to customize your Elio through different wraps. 

Only costume will be on Paul Elio and friends in the form of an Orange Jumper when this is all over.

And a last gasp at prying any remaining fools loose of a few dollars on their credit card to reserve an ELIO

Pitch in the latest emails-

This is the most popular choice for reservations. With an "All in" Reservation you:
- Receive a 25% bonus on your reservation amount.
- Join the highest priority list of reservation holders.
- Receive the limited edition 
Elio T-shirt and bumper sticker.

Take your last $100 and significant other for a night on the town instead. You might get lucky (which is not what you’ll get with an ELIO car deposit) and nothing worse than a hangover to show for it on the downside and you won’t be out there at night scraping off that ELIO bumper sticker so neighbors don’t see you’ve joined the ranks of fools parted with their money.

Say Goodbye…………..

Black Swan Connection October 2017

Posted By Administration, Wednesday, October 25, 2017

October2017

Our goal with the Black Swan Connection is to provide our subscribers, investors and financial professional compatriots outstanding investment insight that is a step above and outside of what will normally be found in mainstream financial press. To that end we have brought together seasoned, successful, and some of the brightest professionals in their respective fields to provide the articles and advice that is based on decades of practice in the field.

Cryptocurrency:

“The Brave New World”

or

“Haven’t We Seen This One Before?”

By: Dave Lavigne

Trickle recently put out some research notes on a company we follow called SRAX (Social Reality, Inc. for those of you who have been following the research since we initiated coverage). SRAX (the symbol is also SRAX by the way), presented at our recent Rocky Mountain Microcap Conference, and to our surprise their presentation was almost totally devoted to a new piece of business we knew nothing about. (They filed an 8k the morning of the conference). That announcement and their new business for that matter, involves among other things, the creation of their own “cryptocurrency” called BIGtokens, which will be associated with the new business, which they refer to as “Blockchain Identification Graph” or “BIG”. In that write up, we noted the following:“We must admit, when we first started covering SRAX five months ago, we didn’t anticipate the story evolving into blockchains and crypto currencies…”.

Like many investors, I have taken notice of Bitcoin (the first cryptocurrency) since its inception (nearly a decade ago), and even given it more credence than some on Wall Street (Jamie Dimon), however, we have never taken the time in earnest to try to understand how it works (blockchain) or why it might (has) become a bona fide medium of exchange (money). Apparently, we should have paid more attention because cryptocurrency is now all the rage.

As most Black Swan readers can attest, my newsletter columns tend to be skewed towards macro perspectives. In short, it seems to me that the shifting macro world is generally where trends start, and I believe trends often create opportunity for small emerging companies. As such, I try to pay attention to the big picture even though I spend most of my time writing individual (micro) company research. Along those lines, this is not a cryptocurrency tutorial. That is WAY above my paygrade. Rather, I just find the macro issues that seem to be woven throughout the cryptocurrency “debate” interesting. Moreover, that evolving tapestry, like much of the investment landscape these days, appears to include plenty of risk, opportunity, blue sky and cautionary tales. Here are a few of my observations.Read Full Report>>

How to Protect Your Identity

SMM has partnered with Generali Global Assistance to provide the most comprehensive and cost effective ID Theft protection available

By now, you are most likely aware that Equifax, one of the three major consumer credit bureaus in the United States, has reporteda widespread data breach, potentially exposing the records of 143 million people.

Unfortunately, we are living in an era where data breaches are becoming increasingly common and it is more important than ever to stay vigilant. Comprehensive, proactive identity and credit monitoring are a critical line of defense in minimizing the risk of identity fraud resulting from personal information exposed during a breach, particularly one of this size.

While data breaches represent highly public examples of identity theft, identity fraud with its long term, time-consuming financial impacts, can occur months or years later. Our Identity Protection program provided by Generali Global Assistance consistently monitors the deep and dark web where stolen personal information is bought and sold, so that if suspicious activity does occur, we can take quick action to minimize the risk and resolve any issues.

To learn more about how you can protect your identity for less than $12.00/month,click here.

 

To celebrate Football Season we’re kicking off a Football season contest.

This week’s pick is Charles Woodson. Charles started out life as a poor kid from a bad neighborhood and with a Mother and coaches that cared deeply and kept him more or less on the straight and narrow became the only defensive player to ever win the Heisman trophy and will go down as one of the greatest defensive back sot ever play the game.

Again great inspiration.Check it out

Reg A Update

Legal Overview and Updates on Reg A +

Another great article from Laura Anthony-

On September 14, 2017, the SEC issued three new Compliance and Disclosure Interpretations (C&DI) to provide guidance related to the filing of aForm 8-Ain conjunction with aTier 2 Regulation A offering. The new guidance addresses the timing of financial statements and subsequent reporting requirements under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (“Exchange Act”).

Furthermore, earlier in September, the House passed the Improving Access to Capital Act, which would allow companies subject to the reporting requirements under the Exchange Act to useRegulation A, a change the entire marketplace is advocating for.

As I do with each blog on Regulation A, I have included an ongoing commentary, practice tips, and thoughts on Regulation A+, and a summary of theRegulation A+ rules, including interpretations and guidance up to the date of this blog.

New CD&I Guidance

As a reminder, Tier 2 issuers that have used the S-1 format for their Form 1-A filing are permitted to file a Form 8-A to register under the Exchange Act and become subject to its reporting requirements and to register with a national exchange. The Form 8-A must be filed within 5 days of qualification of theForm 1-Aby the SEC. A Form 8-A is a simple Exchange Act registration form used instead of a Form 10 for issuers that have already filed the substantive Form 10 information with the SEC. Upon filing a Form 8-A, the issuer will become subject to the full Exchange Act reporting obligations, and the scaled-down Regulation A+ reporting will automatically be suspended. A form 8-A can also be used as a short-form registration to list on a national exchange under Section 12(b) of the Exchange Act.Read More

For today's bulletin, we take a look at Hibbett Sports (HIBB). Hibbett Sporting Goods, Inc. is a rapidly-growing operator of full-line sporting goods stores in small to mid-sized markets predominantly in the southeastern United States. Hibbett's stores offer a broad assortment of quality athletic equipment, footwear and apparel at competitive prices with superior customer service.

Hibbett, like so many of the retailers we cover, has suffered in a market where the Amazons of the world are crushing brick and mortar retailers. However, the company is making strides in the e-commerce arena and early results from their online program are encouraging.

When they posted their last quarterly results in mid-August, Jeff Rosenthal, President and Chief Executive Officer, stated that the company

experienced a very difficult retail environment in the quarter, with a significant decline in transactions and resulting pressure on gross margin. Expenses were well controlled, while maintaining proper staffing and customer service levels in our stores. Looking forward, we expect the external environment to remain challenging, although we are encouraged with the progress we are making on our internal initiatives, most notably our new e-commerce website. Our early e-commerce sales have exceeded expectations and user feedback has been very positive. We will continue our efforts to grow our online business aggressively in the future, while continuing to improve our stores to provide a great overall customer experience.

Moving forward, the company expects the rest of fiscal 2018 to pose continuing challenges. They updated guidance during their last conference call to reflect the following:

  • Earnings per diluted share in the range of $1.25 to $1.35, which compares with previous guidance of $2.35 to $2.55.
  • Comparable store sales in the negative mid to high single-digit range, which compares with previous guidance in the range of negative 1.0% to positive 1.0%.
  • A reduction in gross margin rate of 250 to 285 basis points, which compares with previous guidance of a reduction in gross margin rate of 55 to 75 basis points compared with Fiscal 2017.

Below is our latest data for Hibbett Sports (HIBB):

ValuEngine updated its recommendation from HOLD to BUY for HIBBET SPORTS on 2017-10-11. Based on the information we have gathered and our resulting research, we feel that HIBBET SPORTS has the probability to OUTPERFORM average market performance for the next year. The company exhibits ATTRACTIVE P/E Ratio and Price Sales Ratio.

SMM Weekly Update October 9th

Posted By Administration, Thursday, October 12, 2017

http://www.smm.global/graphics/logo.png

Weekly Update: October 9, 2017

Happy to have Hurricanes behind us, but there will be a tremendous amount of work to put the Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico and neighboring Islands back together. Our hearts got out to those affected and hope everyone can set politics aside to get these people taken care of in a timely fashion.

One of the organizations you can trust to not be a front for some scam is the Red Cross. If you’ve got a few bucks to spare they could sure use it. Donate Here. We donated $100.00, but anything you can do will be greatly appreciated and you can direct funds to Hurricane Maria victims if you wish.

Of course Puerto Rico was in a very precarious financial position before these storms and in May filed a form of Bankruptcy with $123 billion in uncovered debt.

This was published in NY times on May 17, 2017. Click Here>>

This brings up the question of whether this will be the event that finally pushes Puerto Rico into statehood. The Statehood votes over the last few decades have been very close. Now with devastation from Coast to Coast and totally reliant on outside help, the recovery and rebuilding of the economy will be a long haul and people will suffer tremendously. In June 97% of voters said they be willing to sacrifice the quasi-independence and no federal income tax in return for Statehood, but will congress now move forward and pass a bill to approve Statehood. Puerto Rico’s governor is pressing ahead on that front. From LA Times Oct-5 Click here for details

Latest Happenings

Let’s talk football-

Well regardless of what you think about the politics going on the NFL the Packers and Cowboys game was outstanding. Right down to the wire and a great display of talent.

Aaron Rodgers is going to go down as one of the greats and to follow in the footsteps of Brett Favre is no small feat. More on Aaron

Again that look on Jerry Jones face like he just had a swig of milk that was in the fridge a couple two weeks to long. 

To celebrate we’re kicking off a Football season contest.

Every week through superbowl we’re giving away $50.00 and at the end of every month a free subscription to the Black Swan Research Subscription (a $399 value)


Here is what you have to do:
Make sure you’re registered on our website and subscribe to the Black Swan Newsletter.

Click Here if you’re not already registered for some reason or need to update your profile.

Send me an email to: cdilley@smm.global telling me in a few sentences why you think your pick from the “A Football Life” video profiles should be the next to be featured in our newsletter.

From the winners we’ll draw a name and send you $50.00, publish your comments and enter you for the monthly Black Swan Research drawing. Yup, it’s that simple.

This week’s pick (mine) is Coach John Madden. Guy started out with a love for the game and even though he wasn’t destined to player stardom following a knee injury wouldn’t take no for an answer. Eventually through hard work and determination became a Hall of Fame coach, one of the most beloved football announcers of all time, an author and a gazillionaire from the football video games that bear his name.

Great inspiration. Check it out

 

We are excited to announce our new Research Subscription service.

CyberSecurity-

Latest from our Partners at Generali Global Assurance

Malware: Vulnerable Computers mean Vulnerable Identities

In the wake of the recent Equifax data breach, we're all in a state of heightened awareness regarding the vulnerability of our personal data. And while large scale attacks continue to be a threat, our personal devices face a constant barrage of efforts by hackers and identity thieves to gather valuable information that can be used for fraud. While we'll never be completely safe, we can take action to minimize the risk.

If you’ve been anywhere near a TV set or a newspaper in the last few weeks, there’s no doubt you’re aware of the massive data breach of Equifax – one of the country’s three major consumer credit bureaus. Over 143 million records are suspected to have been exposed – meaning about half of Americans are facing an increased risk of identity fraud.

These highly-public data breaches heighten our awareness of the ongoing security risk of our personal data, but we are consistently under attack on our own devices. If your computer is connected to a network it is at risk. A recent study suggested that hackers are attempting to hack personal computers every 39 seconds. Many of these attacks are designed to install malicious software (or “Malware”) on individual computers in an effort to capture personal information – whether it’s yours or someone else’s.

How to Protect Your Identity

SMM has partnered with Generali Global Assistance to provide the most comprehensive and cost effective ID Theft protection available

By now, you are most likely aware that Equifax, one of the three major consumer credit bureaus in the United States, has reported a widespread data breach, potentially exposing the records of 143 million people.

Unfortunately, we are living in an era where data breaches are becoming increasingly common and it is more important than ever to stay vigilant. Comprehensive, proactive identity and credit monitoring are a critical line of defense in minimizing the risk of identity fraud resulting from personal information exposed during a breach, particularly one of this size.

While data breaches represent highly public examples of identity theft, identity fraud with its long term, time-consuming financial impacts, can occur months or years later. Our Identity Protection program provided by Generali Global Assistance consistently monitors the deep and dark web where stolen personal information is bought and sold, so that if suspicious activity does occur, we can take quick action to minimize the risk and resolve any issues.

For today's bulletin, we take a look at financial giant Goldman Sachs $GS and reports that the bank is studying a trading plan for cyber-currency like Bitcoin. We also provide a link to download a FREE STOCK REPORT on the company

VALUATION WATCH: Overvalued stocks now make up 61.95% of our stocks assigned a valuation and 26.24% of those equities are calculated to be overvalued by 20% or more. Fourteen sectors are calculated to be overvalued. Because overvaluation is now calculated to be above 60%, we have re-instituted our valuation watch.

ValuEngine STRONG BUY Goldman Sachs Eyes Bitcoin Trading Op

The Goldman Sachs Group, Inc. (GS) is an investment banking, securities and investment management company that provides a range of financial services to corporations, financial institutions, governments and individuals. The Company operates in four business segments: Investment Banking, Institutional Client Services, Investing & Lending, and Investment Management. The Investment Banking segment consists of financial advisory and underwriting. The Institutional Client Services segment makes markets and facilitates client transactions in fixed income, equity, currency and commodity products. The investing and lending activities, which are typically longer-term, include its investing and relationship lending activities across various asset classes, primarily debt securities and loans, public and private equity securities, infrastructure and real estate. The Investment Management segment provides investment and wealth advisory services. As of December 2016, it had offices in over 30 countries. 

Financial media is awash in reports today that Wall Street giant Goldman Sachs is exploring options related to trading cyber currencies like Bitcoin. Although no firm plans are yet in place, the Wall Street Journal, Bloomberg, and other outlets are reporting that the bank is in talk with "cryptocurrency experts" about setting up exchanges where clients could trade Bitcoin and other similar vehicles.

This will be tricky for the bank, as the cyber currencies are popular vehicles for a variety of nefarious activities including tax evasion, drug dealing, arms sales, etc. US and other law enforcement agencies are engaged in an onoging battle with so-called "dark web" bazaars that sell everything from credit card numbers to MDMA to weapons. Cyber criminals who infect computers with ransomware also prefer to be paid their ransoms in cyber currencies such as Bitcoin.

In launching this initiative, Goldman has embarked on a different path from competitors such as JPMorgan Chase. Just last month, the CEO at JPMorgan pronounced Bitcoin a "fraud" and promised to fire any bank employee who traded it for being "stupid."

Goldman may see an opportunity here, but one wonders how they can possibly meet various regulatory requirements when dealing with an investment whose raison d'être is providing users with anonymity and easy portability. For now, we'll just have to wait and see what the bank comes up with as more details leak out about its plans.

ValuEngine continues its STRONG BUY recommendation on Goldman Sachs for 2017-09-29. Based on the information we have gathered and our resulting research, we feel that Goldman Sachshas the probability to OUTPERFORM average market performance for the next year. The company exhibits ATTRACTIVE Company Size and Momentum.

Black Swan Connection September 2017

Posted By Administration, Friday, September 22, 2017


September 2017

 

Our goal with the Black Swan Connection is to provide our subscribers, investors and financial professional compatriots outstanding investment insight that is a step above and outside of what will normally be found in mainstream financial press. To that end we have brought together seasoned, successful, and some of the brightest professionals in their respective fields to provide the articles and advice that is based on decades of practice in the field.


Dave Lavigne Editor-Black Swan Connection
Cyber Security

Preface By Dave Lavigne

As some may recall, at the first of the year, Stock Market Manager hosted its first piece of research from my Company Trickle Research. That research covered a Denver, Colorado identity theft company called I.D. Watchdog, Inc. A few months ago, I.D Watchdog was acquired by the credit reporting giant, Equifax, Inc. (NYSE: EFX).  Of course, Equifax has been inauspiciously in the news lately because of a data breach that may have compromised 143 million customers.  Now, even the U.S Congress is involved because (aside from the obvious consumer protection issues) some of the Equifax executives were apparently selling stock in and around the time of the breach. 

What is perhaps most in question is the timing of when Equifax actually discovered the breach.  Apparently, hackers first gained access to Equifax data sometime in May but the Company claims it did not discover the breach until July 29th. Again, some seem to be questioning whether they actually knew about the breach sooner.  Frankly, I am not sure which is worse, getting hacked and not figuring it out for 30 to 60 days, or getting hacked and not telling anyone for 30 to 60 days?  What is of course even more interesting to me specifically, is, did Equifax know about the breach when they made the offer to buy I.D. Watchdog in mid-June?  Recognize, mid-June sits smack dab in the middle of the time the hacking started, and the time Equifax actually said they discovered it and told the rest of the world.  By the way, one of Equifax’s “remedies” for its compromised customers is one free year of credit monitoring. I bet you can guess who will be providing that credit monitoring service…  If my math is correct, ID Watchdog’s cheapest monitoring offer was around $10 per month.  At that rate, if Equifax had to buy credit monitoring for 143 million people instead of providing it through its new subsidiary ID Watchdog, it would cost them $17 billion for a year’s worth… and people thought I was crazy when I said that Equifax’s offer of $63 million for ID Watchdog as too cheap.  Read More

 

How to Protect Your Identity

SMM has partnered with Generali Global Assistance to provide the most comprehensive and cost effective ID Theft protection available.

By now, you are most likely aware that Equifax, one of the three major consumer credit bureaus in the United States, has reported a widespread data breach, potentially exposing the records of 143 million people.

Unfortunately, we are living in an era where data breaches are becoming increasingly common and it is more important than ever to stay vigilant. Comprehensive, proactive identity and credit monitoring are a critical line of defense in minimizing the risk of identity fraud resulting from personal information exposed during a breach, particularly one of this size.

While data breaches represent highly public examples of identity theft, identity fraud with its long term, time-consuming financial impacts, can occur months or years later. Our Identity Protection program provided by Generali Global Assistance consistently monitors the deep and dark web where stolen personal information is bought and sold, so that if suspicious activity does occur, we can take quick action to minimize the risk and resolve any issues.

To learn more about how you can protect your identity for less than $12.00/month, click here.

Breaking News from Trickle Research

ID Watchdog (Previously listed as (IDWAF)

ID Watchdog shareholders approved the buyout as proposed. Equifax purchases ID watchdog for $63.3 million or approximately $.40 per share. Click here for details

Hats off to Dave Lavigne of Trickle Research. The original buy recommendation was posted to smm.global on October 13-2016 when the stock was trading at $.14 per share.  Click Here

That’s a 285% gain in 10 months.   * SMM will be discontinuing coverage of ID Watchdog.

Command Center, Inc.    (CCNI)   Initiating Research Coverage   9/18/19

12-24 Month Price Target Range $.80   Allocation  4
Closing Stock Price on 9/15/17            $.1999

Command Center, Inc. (“CCNI”) provides temporary “on-demand” as well as “temp-to-hire” labor services across the U.S. The Company’s focus is in the unskilled or semi-skilled sector of the temporary service market, and as such it serves approximately 3,200 customers in retail, construction, warehousing/industrial, hospitality/events, transportation/auto auction and other related industries. Its business is largely diversified across these various opportunities, so it is generally not concentrated in any one sector. As of this writing, the Company supports 66 stores across 22 states and employs approximatively 34,000 temporary workers.

Command Center has been operating in the temporary labor space for nearly 15 years. The Company was founded in 2002 by the prior founder of industry heavyweight Labor Ready (now called TrueBlue, Inc.), which he built into a billion-dollar enterprise over approximately 10 years before starting Command Center.  Read More

Pulse Evolution Corp.  (PLFX)   Initiating Research Coverage   9/18/19

6 -18 Month Price Target Range $1.15 - $2.30
Closing Stock Price on 9/15/17            $.1999

Pulse Evolution – A Sleeping Giant Awakens

  • Major Production Resulted in Recurring Revenue
  • Qualified CEO Managing Operations
  • Academy Award Nominated Animators
  • Animation Technology Tested and Ready for Prime Time
  • Strategic Investors Fund over $40 million
  • Undervalued Digital Likeness Assets

Pulse Evolution (PLFX) has essentially been in investor hibernation mode for the past 2 years, but that doesn’t mean they have been sleeping.  They are a voluntary filer and chose to stop communicating with most investors while strategic investors silently funded nearly $40 million of technological development.  At a large special effects company this investment wouldn’t have gone far, but the all-star team at PLFX, assembled by former CEO John Textor, worked within this relatively small budget to create hyper realistic digital humans capable of fooling an audience of 11 million TV viewers at the 2014 Music Billboard Award show.  The true value of this technology can be seen at the end of Rogue One with Princes Leia’s CGI cameo that unfortunately for Lucas Films, fooled no one.  Read More

Latest Happenings

Irma is behind us or at least the windy part…….

First of all our best wishes for a speedy recovery and hoping that life can return to normal for those adversely affected. In our case we had power out in our office for a few days and most of our employees as well, but aside from some missing siding and tress, most of us fared pretty well.

Sadly that is not the case for the unfortunate victims in the Caribbean islands and the Florida Keys.

The Caribbean islands directly in the path when Irma was at Cat 5 strength suffered total annihilation. Someone coined the phrase a “nuclear hurricane”. This BBC video from the British Virgin Islands lays it out. BBC Video of BVI destruction. Had the islands been carpet bombed the result wouldn’t be much different.

It will be years before things are rebuilt and lives restored and they will be totally dependent on foreign aid to accomplish that. The Florida Keys reports indicate 1 in 4 houses totally destroyed and 90 % damaged.

Since these tropical paradise locations are primarily dependent on tourism revenue will go to zero and stay that way for some time to come.

Still we were very lucky. Had Irma landed in the US at CAT 5 the damage would have been unimaginable.

One way to help those in need in the Caribbean is to book your next vacation there as soon as a viable location is up and running.

Earlier estimates of $2-300 billion in damage has now been backed down to lows of $50bn to highs of $200bn.

Additional economic fallout will be felt down several chains in the damage pipeline.


Mortgage Defaults

Harvey-

 "There are 1.18 million mortgaged properties in Harvey-related disaster areas, more than twice as many as were hit by Hurricane Katrina, with nearly four times the unpaid principal balance (of $179 billion)," said Graboske. Source Black Knight

“Tropical storm Harvey has put as much as $30bn of securitised industrial mortgages on analysts and buyers watch lists, as harm from the catastrophe has heightened the risk of defaults”. Source Forexdepository.com

Irma-

Some $40 billion in securitized commercial mortgages is potentially at risk in Florida, thanks to major damage left behind by Hurricane Irma. Source Morningstar

That is a boat load of mortgage defaults. Fannie Mae will carry some of this load and so will some insurers, but the brunt will be taken by Mortgage backed securities and banks.

Insurance claims

Property damage from Hurricane Irma has been projected at $64 billion to $92 billion by Moody's Analytics.  Following Hurricane Andrew 22 insurance companies failed leaving billions in unpaid claims.

Remaining insurers either left the Sate altogether or raised rates to ridiculous levels. A State sponsored insurer called Citizens was established as an insurer of last resort and a backstop for catastrophic damage.

We’ll see what happens with that. Citizens Reserves are reportedly at only $9 billion.

Business interruption-

Effectively the State of Florida was completely shut down for at least a week. Annual GDP of Florida is $748 billion. Divide that by 52 and you can add another $14.4bn to the overall cost.

All tolled it’s an easy $300bn hit from these two hurricanes and I haven’t added in the damages etc in the Carolinas and Georgia and only a small part of Harvey estimates.

Great Article on the value of Research from our Research Partner Don McDonald at Consilium Research

The Changing Landscape of Capital Markets & the Strategic Role of Research

The traditional model for equity capital markets has changed dramatically over the past 30 years and it is not working anymore.  New regulations, electronic trading, bans of proprietary trading and increased capital requirements has changed the landscape on Wall Street.

In a speech a few years ago, Jamie Dimon of J.P. Morgan Chase noted 30 years ago they trade a share of stock for 15¢, and today 1¢ a share.  At a penny per share how does an investment bank pay an analyst, a salesmen and a sales trader?  The model is broken – Bear Stearns, Lehman Brothers and hundreds of research investment banks that focused on small and mid-cap companies have shut their doors.  The end result is 80% of public companies of market caps below 125 million have no research coverage.

What is the Value of Equity Research?

According to a recent study published in CFA Magazine, the valuation of a security over the long-term consists of: 

  • 10% Market Fluctuation
    • 55% Management Execution
    • 35% Investor Recognition

 

The value of equity research for all intents and purposes, is recognition – recognition by investors and decision makers who purchase securities. Compared with uncovered peers, companies with equity coverage exhibit greater market valuations, greater trading activity and realize a lower cost of capital. A recent study published in the Financial Analysts Journal (FAJ) indicates that the capital markets discount companies lacking recognition by more than one third, resulting in a higher cost of capital.

Special Situation      TESLA  (TSLA) $376

We’re going to be following this as a special situation. I don’t know how you can’t come to the conclusion that the stock is way overvalued by any mortal means of valuation.

Market Cap 60.6 B (yup that’s $ Billion). Compare that to Ford at $43.5B with a $.60 a share dividend and at 11.6 X earnings. Tesla lost $675 Million last year.

One of the newest things is a self-driving car. Not so fast --no pun intended.

After Joshua Brown, 40, of Canton, Ohio, was killed driving a Tesla Model S in the first fatality involving a self-driving car, questions have arisen about the safety of the car’s crash-avoidance Autopilot system. Tesla told Senate investigators that a “technical failure” of the automatic braking system played a role but maintains that Autopilot was not at fault. Read complete article.

Tesla also says a driver of an autopilot car has to keep his hands on the wheel and pay attention etc. I’m paraphrasing here, but you get the idea. I think that has about zero merit for the following reasons:

  1. We have a huge problem with driver distraction in using cell phones etc now when you are supposedly 100% in control. Imagine what happens when you think the car can drive itself??
  2. A system failure of any kind at speed could quite likely kill you.
  3. Being a car and motorcycle race driver I learned something very interesting from a local physicist that runs an aircraft-auto race simulator facility.

You believe with absolute certainty that what you see is in real time.  Not True. Depending on your age and reflexes etc the time delay from when your eye sees an image and when it is registered by your brain is between 2-4 tenths of a second. If you’re the 4 tenths guy that is 28 feet at 50mph. In other words you are already 28 feet further down the road than you think you are. How close are you going to be towards that truck the car didn’t see when you realize you have a problem??

Tesla was cleared of problems with its systems, but in this report from the NY Times they lay out exactly my case as to the why that auto driver car will kill a lot of people until the systems are bullet proof to the point that automated trains are.

Tesla has said its camera failed to recognize the white truck against a bright sky. But the agency essentially found that Mr. Brown was not paying attention to the road. It determined he set his car’s cruise control at 74 miles per hour about two minutes before the crash, and should have had at least seven seconds to notice the truck before crashing into it.

Complete article

Bottom line is that before this auto driving car idea can really take hold it will need to be tested to death. If not you’ll kill people on a regular basis and the attorney’s will have a field day. 

Sooooo anybody building in some huge revenue for Tesla from self-driving cars better have lots of patience.
 

Reg A Update

AAAAAh yes--  our friends at Elio entertain once again..

Well if you’ve been following along you were probably aghast to see Elio announce a securities offering and the stock torch up to a high of $10.60 last week.

Carl you must have lost your mind when you said it was going to zero…

The lost mind crowd is the group that thinks that because you file an S-1 offering doc that means you’re going to raise the money. That might be true if there was a firm commitment underwriting LOI from a recognized Investment bank. Sorry, but there isn’t one. That filing is a smoke-show, that anyone could replicate. First it has to be approved by the SEC and then you have to find someone dumb enough to put up $100 million more into this charade, which would still be a long way from getting the job done. In my opinion all the dumb money is already in.

The Wishful thinkers have sobered up and as I write this it is already back to $5.25 and headed back where it came from and on down.

Some excerpts and comment below from the S-1 (Link Here):
 

“We expect the Elio to have a gamechanging impact beyond simply vehicle sales.” As of March 31, 2017, we had 65,255 reservations for the Elio.”  

Seems to me the game is really bilking those 65,255 car reserve people out of their money. Sorry guys, Elio spent it already so you’re not getting your car and you’re not getting your money back either.

“On May 31, 2017, we entered into a third amendment to our purchase agreement with RACER Trust pursuant to 
which our commitment to create 1,500 new jobs by July 1, 2017, has been extended to September 1, 2019. On May 31, 2017 and July 1, 2017, we entered into forbearance agreements with RACER Trust pursuant to which 
RACERTrust has agreed to forbear on enforcing the payments due under a promissory note from October 1, 2016 
to September 30, 2017. If we  receive  net  proceeds  of  at  least  $25  million,  in  the  aggregate  from  one  or  more  offerings  of  the  Company’s  debt  or  equity securities on or before September 30, 2017, then we must pay to RACER Trust, on or before September 30, 2017, the sum of the unpaid monthly amounts due to RACER Trust under the promissory note. Default interest of 18% per annum will continue accruing until the payments are resumed on October 1, 2017. In addition, the maturity date of the promissory note has been extended from July 1, 2017 to July 31, 2018.”

Bottom line is they need $25 million from this offering to keep the property and equipment deal in place. That’s 45 days. Not Happening

“The Elio is  still  in  development,  and  we  do  not  expect  to  start  delivering  to  customers  until  2019.”

Every time he does a Press Release he adds a year to delivery. Nice try, your car reserve people are going to be well into the class action lawsuit before then.

 “Currently, we estimate that we need to raise an estimated $376.6 million from new investment.”

Let’s suppose that’s true… How does a $100 million offering get that accomplished?  It doesn’t and therefore smart money is not going to go down that road not knowing where the other $276 million is coming from.

“We face significant barriers as we attempt to produce our first mass produced vehicle. We currently have a few drivable early prototypes  of  the Elio,  but  do  not  have  a  full  production  intent  prototype,  a  final  design,  a  built-out  manufacturing  facility  or manufacturing processes. “

This alone makes a host of internet posts and press releases a bald faced lie.

I could go on.. bet there is really no need.

It’s only a matter of time until gravity will finally take its toll on the stock price

ValuEngine Rates Hewlett Packard A STRONG BUY

September 13, 2017 by Steve Hach

For today’s bulletin, we take a look at Hewlett Packard Inc. $HPQ. We also provide a link to download a FREE STOCK REPORT on the company

VALUATION: Overvalued stocks now make up 53.03% of our stocks assigned a valuation and 19.46% of those equities are calculated to be overvalued by 20% or more. Thirteen sectors are calculated to be overvalued.

To subscribe to our bulletins and receive content whenever it is published, subscribe at our blog HERE

HP Inc. (HPQ) is the surviving entity following the November 2015 split of Hewlett-Packard Company into publicly traded entities – Hewlett Packard Enterprise Company and HP Inc. The company’s focus will be on the PC and printing products and services. HP Inc. is headquartered in Palo Alto, California.

Keep in mind that today we are discussing HP Inc, this is the company most people think of when they think “Hewlett Packard” because this is the entity that is responsible for PCs, printers, and other similar items. The “other” HP is Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE). Hewlett Packard Enterprise handles data centers, software, and IT services for corporate clients.

The company split up after the disaster that was the reign of former CEO–and recent US presidential candidate– Carly Fiorina. Fiorina wrecked one of the premiere tech pioneers of Silicon Valley in little more than five years. She was responsible for a variety of disastrous decisions including purchasing COMPAQ, firing @30,000 workers, and other missteps. It took a full on revolt from the founders’ heirs to finally remove her.

Of course, as is too often the case in modern-day America, for her “success” Fiorina was rewarded with a $20 million golden parachute package. Now, the company is on the mend–indeed, once Fiorina was fired the stock popped 10% in response.

When the companies were split up, most analysts expected HP Inc. to fade. Perhaps not immediately, but surely a focus on PCs and printers, items which are more like a commodity than a high-value item (unless you are Apple), would not be very “sexy” and would have more mundane profits.

HP Enterprise, on the other hand, was supposed to be the “golden child.” It’s focus on high-value items like data centers and services would boost their bottom line. So, this was the portion of HP that attracted all the “smart” money and analysis.

But, over the past year we have seen a reversal here. HP Inc. is the company with the good results and the attention. HP Enterprise is having a hard time in the cloud, and sales goal and projections and not being met. Meanwhile, HP Inc. has posted good numbers and has been rewarded by analysts and investors. Their efforts to expand their 3D printing business show promise–and profits–and changes to how they handle ink supplies for more standard printers have also paid off. They have also focused on more powerful–and profitable–computers for higher-end business clients and thus also boosted their bottom line.

ValuEngine continues its STRONG BUY recommendation on HP Inc. for 2017-09-11. Based on the information we have gathered and our resulting research, we feel that HP Inc. has the probability to OUTPERFORM average market performance for the next year. The company exhibits ATTRACTIVE Company Size and P/E Ratio.

SMM Weekly Update September 8th

Posted By Administration, Wednesday, September 13, 2017

http://www.smm.global/graphics/logo.png

Weekly Update: September 8, 2017

Last week we were sending our best wishes for the folks suffering through Harvey in Texas and now we are getting ready for the same treatment from Irma.

It is still too early to tell what the impact zone will be in Florida, but if as predicted Miami is a direct hit and then Irma tears up the center of Florida and on into Georgia and the Carolina’s with cat 4-5 winds, the damage from Harvey will pale in comparison. Having lived through some minor Hurricanes and saw first-hand the damage wreaked by Hugo that impression is still well imprinted even though it was almost 30 years ago. Hugo is maybe a close second by comparison. That Hurricane skirted Florida so the impact on the heavily populated southeast of Florida was minimal. I was in Puerto Rico and St. Thomas shortly after where they took a direct hit. It could only be described as apocalyptic. Power was out for months in some areas and St. Croix with a population of less than 50,000 had 90% of buildings damaged and over $1bn in damages in 1989 $. These images tell the tale. Click Here

From Wikipedia - Hurricane Hugo was a powerful Cape Verde-type hurricane that caused widespread damage and loss of life in the Leeward Islands, Puerto Rico, and the Southeast United States. It formed over the eastern Atlantic near the Cape Verde Islands on September 9, 1989. Hugo moved thousands of miles across the Atlantic, rapidly strengthening to briefly attain category 5 hurricane strength on its journey. It later crossed over Guadeloupe and St. Croix on September 17 and 18 as a category 4 hurricane. Weakening slightly more, it passed over Puerto Rico as a strong category 3 hurricane. Further weakening occurred several hours after re-emerging into the Atlantic, becoming downgraded to a category 2 hurricane. However, it re-strengthened into a category 4 hurricane before making landfall just slightly north of Charleston, on Sullivan's Island on September 21 with 140 mph sustained winds (gusts to more than 160 mph). It had devolved to a remnant low near Lake Erie by the next day. As of 2016, Hurricane Hugo is the most intense tropical cyclone to strike the East Coast north of Florida since 1900.[1]

Hurricane Hugo caused 34 fatalities (most by electrocution or drowning) in the Caribbean and 27 in South Carolina,[2] left nearly 100,000 homeless, and resulted in $10 billion (1989 USD) in damage overall, making it the most damaging hurricane ever recorded at the time.[3] Of this total, $7 billion was from the United States and Puerto Rico, ranking it as the costliest storm to impact the country at the time. Since 1989, however, it has been surpassed by multiple storms and now ranks as the eleventh costliest in the United States.

What does all this mean economically??

If the10 million people in the path of Irma are affected in a similar fashion to the damage from HUGO in St. Croix that bill extrapolates to $400bn.

When people throw numbers around in the billions it is hard to contemplate what that is. If you look at initial Harvey estimates at $120bn and divide that by the 2016 estimated number of employed persons in the US at 127.4 million that equals $941 for everyone of you that have a job. Well you say: “ok the insurance companies will pick up a big part of this”. In the end you still pay, since you are the one paying the insurance premiums. I am guessing Irma will eclipse the Harvey damage, simply due to the number of people in its path, the size of the strom and the severe winds. Harvey max sustained winds were in the 80 mph range. Irma is CAT 5 185 mph sustained and gusts to 225 mph. Only the strongest concrete and steel structures can withstand a direct hit and wave and surge damage anywhere near a coastal area where there is a direct impact will be beyond belief.

So everyone working; this will cost you another $2-3,000 on top of your bill for Harvey and get ready for another round of double digit flood and wind damage insurance premiums.

So, what can you buy for the cost of Harvey at $120bn ??

How about 9 nuclear aircraft carriers at $13bn a piece, add the cost of Irma and you can put a man on the moon. First time around that cost about $200bn in current $.

If you’re anywhere in the path, take this seriously and we wish you all the best of outcomes.

Latest Happenings

North Korea continues to threaten and we (the US and Trump administration) will be increasingly forced to make some very tough choices. All of which will be the best of bad alternatives. The economic impact could be substantial.

Latest from CNBC –Click Here

  1. All out military action will result in a large number of casualties and the US becoming responsible for the remains of North and South Korea and its population Millions will flee over the border to South Korea and the North Korean government will collapse totally.

  2. Further sanctions including cutting off trade with China will also be devastating. China is our largest trading partner with 2016 two way trade totaling more than $578 bn.

One way or another this guy has to be stopped however. More on this in the Black Swan Connection this month.

 

Reg A Update

No exciting news this week.

ELIO Motors bouncing off of $6.00 on very low volume and no news. Just more goofy emails about how the design of the engine which doesn’t exist etc

For today's bulletin, we take a look at Sanderson Farms (SAFM). Sanderson Farms Inc. is a fully-integrated poultry processing company engaged in the production, processing, marketing and distribution of fresh and frozen chicken products. The company sells ice pack, chill pack and frozen chicken, in whole, cut-up and boneless form, primarily under the Sanderson Farms7 brand name to retailers, distributors, and fast food operators principally in the southeastern, southwestern and western United States. 

Sanderson posted decent results last week for Q3 2017. Net sales for the third quarter of fiscal 2017 were $931.9 million compared with $728.0 million for the same period a year ago. For the quarter, the Company reported net income of $115.8 million, or $5.09 per share, compared with net income of $54.7 million, or $2.42 per share, for the third quarter of fiscal 2016. These numbers were better than expected for the company and the shares got a nice bump as a result of the good results last week.

Driving these numbers were a chicken craze in the US that shows no signs of abating. Healthy eaters provide a strong base for the boneless-breast meat business while other eaters continue to gobble up chicken wings in ever larger numbers. It still is interesting to consider the fact that chicken wings, once considered a throw-away product, now command higher prices than other chicken parts--including breast meat. The media is awash in click-bait stories of shortages for this part any time there is a big sporting event in the US.

The CEO of Sanderson, Joe Sanderson, told investors that

Sanderson Farms’ financial results for the third quarter of fiscal 2017 reflect a continued favorable balance of supply and demand for fresh chicken sold to retail grocery store customers. That balance was reflected in relatively strong market prices for that product during the current third fiscal quarter. Market prices for boneless breast meat, bulk leg quarters and jumbo wings produced at our plants that process a larger bird were all higher this year when compared to last year’s third fiscal quarter. Food service traffic and demand in the United States remain below pre-recession levels, but demand from and the popularity of local chain concepts and restaurants that focus on wings are offsetting reduced traffic at casual dining restaurants. This demand contributed to a good supply and demand balance during the quarter.

Moving forward, Sanderson will be bringing a new plant online in Texas in the coming months and will reach maximum production levels from a recently completed plant in North Carolina soon. Increased production should allow the company to boost its profits and meet additional demand for the high-value items like boneless breasts and wings.

Below is our latest data for Sanderson Farms (SAFM):

ValuEngine updated its recommendation from BUY to STRONG BUY for Sanderson Farms on 2017-09-01. Based on the information we have gathered and our resulting research, we feel that Sanderson Farms has the probability to OUTPERFORM average market performance for the next year. The company exhibits ATTRACTIVE Sharpe Ratio and Momentum.

Black Swan Connection August 2017

Posted By Administration, Monday, September 4, 2017

August  2017

Our goal with the Black Swan Connection is to provide our subscribers, investors and financial professional compatriots outstanding investment insight that is a step above and outside of what will normally be found in mainstream financial press. To that end we have brought together seasoned, successful, and some of the brightest professionals in their respective fields to provide the articles and advice that is based on decades of practice in the field.

Cannabis: You are What You Smoke

Trickle Research is headquartered in Colorado, and I have a second home in Northern Idaho about 60 miles from the Washington border. I started in the business in Spokane, Washington in 1984 so I still have a number of friends and acquaintances in the financial industry in that area.  Its nearly impossible to spend time in Colorado and/or Washington state in the early stage emerging company business without seeing a considerable amount of deal flow from the cannabis space. 

Recently, Trickle published its first piece of public company research in the space as we initiated on a company in the retail hydroponics business, which these days is driven by cannabis growers.  Unfortunately, the issuer chose not to have that piece of research hosted and distributed by SMM.Global so the research is not available to the public, but suffice it to say, our thesis is built on the notion that the cannabis industry is poised to get much larger, as more and more states legalize cannabis (on one level or another) through either legislative or ballot initiatives.  To be sure, the industry remains shackled by reluctance of legalization at the federal level, while states are being pushed to legalize by overwhelming public opinion.  While I certainly have no insight into the minds of public officials contemplating federal legalization, and I am not sure there is such thing as a foregone conclusion with respect to federal legislation.  However, country wide cannabis legalization, one way or another, is a rolling stone…and it doesn’t seem to be gathering moss.  Read More

 

It’s Football season again!!!

Not soccer, good old American Football. Did I mention I love football…..

In many ways it is a great analogy for running a business. Teamwork, leadership, training, practice, hard work, employing the best people for the job etc etc

The beauty of football is that it is a take-no-prisoners business and politics and infighting take a back seat to the very clear goal of winning football games. When I was a kid I dreamed of being a pro football player. In Junior High I was a pretty stocky guy and got the role of middle linebacker, which I loved. I wasn’t the biggest or fastest by any means, but I was a pretty stocky kid for my age and could either simply run over or toss those skinny leg guys out of the way. One of my happiest days came like this:

We’re practicing for our first game of the year and nearly every play I get through the line and have the quarterback or half back, if he was lucky enough to get the ball, before they knew what happened. After probably a half hour of this coach calls a break. He gets us together and tells the offense side we’re going to run maybe 10 plays like this:

Wherever Dilley lines up or you think he is coming through the line I want the half back to hit Dilley head on and I want the offensive tackle to pull and come around on the side Dilley is on and help the half back. I’m thinking OMG I’m about to get crushed a bunch of times in a row and am thinking coach is teaching me a lesson for having caused so much chaos up to now in practice. Somebody asks, coach why are we doing this? Well in case it hasn’t occurred to you guys yet, if there is a Dilley playing linebacker on the other team come Sunday you’re going get killed and you better have a plan to deal with it and this is it. I don’t remember much after that I was so proud of that left handed pat on the back. We had a good season, but unfortunately I never grew much after that and a football career was soon out of reach.

The point is, though, we had a great coach (CEO) and loved the guy. Decades later I still see his face and hear him cheering us on. Hats off to coach Dan Fouts from Colton, Oregon. I have no idea if he was related to the San Diego Charger QB with the same name. He was quick to make changes and get the right people on the field and recognize and reward people. Quick to match people who’s talents fit the right spot on the team. That lesson above was only one of many in how to deal with adversity and work together for a common goal. In business that translates to making money for the organization and taking care of your people.

If you want a dose of inspiration check out the video production that is part of the NFL series “A Football Life” on Ladanian Tomlinson. A humble kid from a poor background that in spite of all sorts of setbacks and adversity took his considerable natural talents (we all have some) and became a superstar a terrific role model and an inspiration to generations of kids and probably everyone he was ever involved with.   Click Here

Latest Happenings-

TESLA  (TSLA) $364.70

Market Cap 60.6 B (yup that’s $ Billion). Compare that to Ford at $43.5B with a $.60 a share dividend and at 11.6 X earnings. Tesla lost $675 Million last year. 

Speaking of Smoking Pot, seems the analysts that keep upping their share targets for TESLA have been burning the pipe at both ends. 

This is starting to remind me of the old Dot Bomb days. “You just don’t understand Brick and Mortar is dead and if you don’t get in now, you’ll never get another chance”.

Electric cars are in and if you don’t get in now………….

Don’t know if you’ve checked but nearly 20 years later and there is still a Macy’s and most of the rest of the big brand brick and mortar. Ecommerce is now becoming big business, but it took a long time to happen. This won’t be any different and if our new mentality about US energy supply is anywhere near successful oil and gas prices will continue to decline over time putting additional competitive pressure on alternative energy anything.

Even though I’ll be the first to agree that electrifying the auto industry is a good thing in principal, battery technology and charging availability will hinder the industry for several years to come. Latest report I saw indicates about a $10,000 premium for battery technology over a typical gas driven vehicle. That is offset to some degree by a $7,500 federal tax credit. The new Model 3 is supposed to get 215 miles on a charge and is supposed to come in at $35,000 before tax rebates. Owners will have to pay for supercharging (getting a charge quickly instead of overnight), but we don’t know what that cost is yet.

The other rub is that they have to build filing stations. Imagine you just invented the gas powered car and you had to build a network of filling stations no more than 215 miles apart!!  Ok, so they can partner with existing filling stations, hotels, restaurants and convenience stores or whatever, but it still is an enormous undertaking.

Musk has a goal of boosting its network of Supercharger stations, which can repower its vehicles in under 30 minutes, to 10,000 by year end from 5,400 currently. Chargers installed at “destination” locations – hotels, resorts, restaurants, etc. – will expand from 9,000 currently to 15,000 this year, from a recent Tesla blog post

Tesla has been going through money at a heart stopping rate and they just announced a $1.5 billion bond offering.

From the CEO in the Q-3 call last October

 “One thing that's worth mentioning and, certainly, I would take this with a grain of salt and not like it's – like sometimes, I'll say things which I think are sort of speculation or my best guess but they are not – it's different from a promise. Our current plan – our current financial plan does not require any capital raise for Model 3 at all. So now that's different from saying whether we should raise capital or not to account for uncertainty to have a larger buffer and to sort of de-risk the business.”

Not sure about you, but that doesn’t give me a warm feeling that they have any idea what’s going on financially for real.

In upcoming newsletter we’re going to dig in a little deeper and keep you posted.

 

Reg A Update

AAAAAh yes--  our friends at Elio entertain once again..

Well if you’ve been following along you were probably aghast to see Elio announce a securities offering and the stock torch up to a high of $10.60 last week.

Carl you must have lost your mind when you said it was going to zero…

The lost mind crowd is the group that thinks that because you file an S-1 offering doc that means you’re going to raise the money. That might be true if there was a firm commitment underwriting LOI from a recognized Investment bank. Sorry, but there isn’t one. That filing is a smoke-show, that anyone could replicate. First it has to be approved by the SEC and then you have to find someone dumb enough to put up $100 million more into this charade, which would still be a long way from getting the job done. In my opinion all the dumb money is already in.

The Wishful thinkers have sobered up and as I write this it is already back to $5.25 and headed back where it came from and on down.

Some excerpts and comment below from the S-1 (Link Here):

“We expect the Elio to have a gamechanging impact beyond simply vehicle sales.” As of March 31, 2017, we had 65,255 reservations for the Elio.”  

Seems to me the game is really bilking those 65,255 car reserve people out of their money. Sorry guys, Elio spent it already so you’re not getting your car and you’re not getting your money back either.

“On May 31, 2017, we entered into a third amendment to our purchase agreement with RACER Trust pursuant to 
which our commitment to create 1,500 new jobs by July 1, 2017, has been extended to September 1, 2019. On May 31, 2017 and July 1, 2017, we entered into forbearance agreements with RACER Trust pursuant to which 
RACERTrust has agreed to forbear on enforcing the payments due under a promissory note from October 1, 2016 
to September 30, 2017. If we  receive  net  proceeds  of  at  least  $25  million,  in  the  aggregate  from  one  or  more  offerings  of  the  Company’s  debt  or  equity securities on or before September 30, 2017, then we must pay to RACER Trust, on or before September 30, 2017, the sum of the unpaid monthly amounts due to RACER Trust under the promissory note. Default interest of 18% per annum will continue accruing until the payments are resumed on October 1, 2017. In addition, the maturity date of the promissory note has been extended from July 1, 2017 to July 31, 2018.

Bottom line is they need $25 million from this offering to keep the property and equipment deal in place. That’s 45 days. Not Happening

“The Elio is  still  in  development,  and  we  do  not  expect  to  start  delivering  to  customers  until  2019.”

Every time he does a Press Release he adds a year to delivery. Nice try, your car reserve people are going to be well into the class action lawsuit before then.

 “Currently, we estimate that we need to raise an estimated $376.6 million from new investment.”

Let’s suppose that’s true… How does a $100 million offering get that accomplished?  It doesn’t and therefore smart money is not going to go down that road not knowing where the other $276 million is coming from.

“We face significant barriers as we attempt to produce our first mass produced vehicle. We currently have a few drivable early prototypes  of  the Elio,  but  do  not  have  a  full  production  intent  prototype,  a  final  design,  a  built-out  manufacturing  facility  or manufacturing processes. “

This alone makes a host of internet posts and press releases a bald faced lie.

I could go on.. bet there is really no need.

It’s only a matter of time until gravity will finally take its toll on the stock price
