HedgePath Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (HPPI)

InvestorsHub, BUYINS.NET, MarketWatch, and Stockhouse reported previously on HedgePath Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (HPPI), and today we highlight the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.

HedgePath Pharmaceuticals, Inc. is a clinical stage biopharmaceutical company. It discovers, develops, and plans to commercialize leading-edge therapeutics for patients with cancer. The Company is looking to repurpose the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved antifungal pharmaceutical itraconazole as a potential treatment for cancer. HedgePath Pharmaceuticals is based in Tampa, Florida.

The Company is the exclusive U.S. licensee of a patented formulation of itraconazole, called SUBA-Itraconazole. Clinical studies have shown it to have more bioavailability than generic itraconazole. The Hedgehog signaling pathway is a major regulator of cellular processes in vertebrates. This includes cell differentiation, tissue polarity, and cell proliferation.

Based on published research, HedgePath Pharmaceuticals believes that inhibiting the Hedgehog pathway could delay or possibly prevent the development of certain cancers in humans. Taking advantage of research undertaken by key investigators in the field, HedgePath’s plan is to explore the effectiveness of SUBA-Itraconazole as an anti-cancer agent and to pursue its potential commercialization.

The design of “SUBA technology” (which stands for “Super Bioavailability”) is to improve the bioavailability of orally administered drugs that are poorly soluble. SUBA-Itraconazole is a patented formulation developed by Mayne Pharma. It has improved absorption and considerably decreased variability versus generic itraconazole.

Clean Coal Technologies, Inc. (CCTC)

Stock Invest, InvestorPoint, Small Cap Exclusive, Marketbeat, Investors Hangout, InvestorsHub, Insider Financial, Stock News Union, Stockhouse, and StocksTrade reported on Clean Coal Technologies, Inc. (CCTC), and today we report on the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.

OTCQB-listed, Clean Coal Technologies, Inc. is an emerging growth coal technology business. It holds patented process technology and other intellectual property (IP), which converts raw coal into a cleaner burning fuel. The Company’s trademarked end products, "Pristine™" coals, are substantially more efficient, less polluting, more cost-effective, and provide more heat than untreated coal. Clean Coal Technologies has its corporate headquarters in New York, New York.

The Company’s clean coal technology may reduce roughly 90 percent of chemical pollutants from coal. This includes Sulfur and Mercury. Therefore, this resolves emissions issues affecting coal-fired power plants. Clean Coal’s technology deals with the extraction of the volatiles in liquid form from lower ranking coals.

Upon removal of moisture from the targeted coal, the liquid volatiles are used via an “absorption” process to fill the pores of the coal that have been dehydrated. More liquid volatiles are utilized via an adsorption process to coat the coal. The result is a considerable improvement in the coal ranking through increased caloric content (BTU’s), and a stable low moisture feedstock for power generation.

Clean Coal Technologies has its Pristine-SA technology. This is a development stage technology designed to eliminate 100 percent of the volatile material in feed coal. Clean Coal also has its legacy technology, Pristine™. The design of it is to remove moisture and volatile matter (VM), as per client-specified requirements.

The Company’s Pristine M technology is a patented, low-cost coal dehydration technology. The Pristine M process begins with the extraction of volatile material in liquid form from lower ranking coals.

On October 9, 2018, Clean Coal Technologies announced that the Australian Patent Office accepted the Company’s Pristine SA patent. Mr. Sean Mahoney, Clean Coal Technologies Press Officer, said, "The Pristine SA Australia patent was applied for in May 2013 and CCTI is very pleased to announce today that the Patent Office has accepted our application. The patents for our Pristine and Pristine M technology were granted in 2016 and this completes the patent protection for all three of our technologies.”

Midwest Energy Emissions Corp. (MEEC)

SeriousTraders, MissionIR, NBT Equities Research, Greenbackers, Marketbeat, Wall Street Resources, TopPennyStockMovers, and PennyStocks24 reported earlier on Midwest Energy Emissions Corp. (MEEC), and today we are highlighting the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.

Midwest Energy Emissions Corp. is a developing leader in mercury emissions control technology for the international coal-power industry. It develops and utilizes patented and proprietary technologies to remove mercury from coal-power plant emissions. Midwest Energy Emissions centers on the delivery of mercury capture technologies to power plants and other industrial coal-burning units in North America, Europe, and Asia. OTCQB-listed, the Company has its corporate headquarters in Lewis Center, Ohio.

Midwest Energy Emissions employs patented technology, which has been shown to realize mercury removal levels compliant with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) Mercury and Air Toxic Standards (MATS) rule, at a substantially lower cost and with less operational impact than methods now used. This is while preserving the ability for customers to recycle and sell fly-ash for beneficial use.

The Company’s proprietary SEA™ (Sorbent Enhancement Additive) technology delivers a flexible, tunable solution. It allows the worldwide coal-power industry to easily comply with new, highly restrictive regulations on mercury air emissions. Midwest Energy Emissions acquired all patent rights for its Sorbent Enhancement Additive (SEA™) mercury emissions control technology from the Energy & Environmental Research Center Foundation (EERCF of Grand Forks, North Dakota).

The SEA™ approach to mercury capture is precisely custom-made for each application to complement a customer’s fuel type and boiler configuration for best results. EERCF is an organization that works to provide inventive solutions to the globe’s energy and environmental challenges.

The Company is adding a new product to its proven, cost-effective mercury capture program. The product will lessen mercury emissions by preventing scrubber re-emission events. The design of the product is purposely for coal-fired power utilities with wet scrubbers to help remove mercury and other metals from the scrubber.

This month, Midwest Energy Emissions announced it secured a three-year, multi-million dollar yearly supply contract extension with a present customer. With this extended supply contract, the Company will continue supplying its proprietary Sorbent Enhancement Additive SEA® technologies.

Last week, Midwest Energy Emissions announced its expansion into a present customer’s fleet to supply its proprietary Sorbent Enhancement Additive SEA® technologies to two additional coal-fired boilers. The expectation is that this expansion will produce multi-million dollars each year in Revenue over the course of three years.

Mr. Richard MacPherson, Midwest Energy Emissions’ President and Chief Executive Officer, said, “This expansion was secured with one of the largest utilities in North America and a long-term customer of ours. Our ability to expand into other boilers for this client is a result of our continued best-in-class performance. We believe that our unique ability to bring boilers into emissions compliance with the most efficient, cost effective system will continue to drive new business to our Company in the coming months and years, both with current and new customers.”

BriaCell Therapeutics Corp. (OTC: BCTXF) (TSX.V: BCT)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight BriaCell Therapeutics Corp. (BCTXF).

BriaCell Therapeutics Corp. (OTCQB: BCTXF) (TSX.V: BCT) recently initiated patient dosing in a combination study of lead clinical candidate Bria-IMT with Merck’s (NYSE: MRK) KEYTRUDA® and Bristol-Myers’ (NYSE: BMY) YERVOY®. To view the full article, visit http://nnw.fm/3omHg.

BriaCell Therapeutics Corp. (OTC: BCTXF) (TSX.V: BCT), based in Berkeley, CA, and headquartered in Vancouver, British Columbia, is a clinical-stage biotechnology company focused on the development of targeted immunotherapy for advanced breast cancer.

BriaCell hopes to develop and market the first off-the-shelf personalized immunotherapy for the treatment of advanced breast cancer.

The results of two previous proof-of-concept clinical trials produced encouraging results in patients with advanced breast cancer. Most notably, one patient with breast cancer that had spread to other sites (metastatic cancer) responded to Bria-IMT™ with a substantial tumor shrinkage in multiple sites including the breast, the lung, soft tissues and even the brain. Similar observations have been confirmed more recently in additional patients, and BriaCell is developing BriaDX™ as a way to identify those patients most likely to respond.

BriaCell has recently completed recruitment of a Phase I/II study (NCT03066947) of Bria-IMT™, the Company’s lead product candidate, in advanced breast cancer patients showing an outstanding safety profile and excellent efficacy. BriaCell is currently enrolling advanced breast cancer patients in a combination therapy trial (NCT03328026) of Bria-IMT™ with Keytruda® (Keytruda® is a registered trademark of Merck Sharp & Dohme Corp., a subsidiary of Merck & Co., Inc.) or Yervoy® (Yervoy® is a registered trademark of Bristol-Myers Squibb Company). For further information on the Phase IIa clinical trials, please visit trial NCT03066947 and trial NCT03328026.

BriaCell’s pipeline also includes Bria-OTS™, the first off-the-shelf personalized immunotherapy for advanced breast cancer; and, a companion diagnostic product BriaDX™. By using BriaDX™ to identify and treat the patients who would most likely benefit from their immunotherapies, BriaCell expects to personalize the treatment for the patients, and bring hope to thousands of cancer patients who currently have few-to-no treatment options.

Breast Cancer Statistics

The National Cancer Institute estimates that more than 265,000 new cases of female breast cancer will be diagnosed in the U.S. during 2018, and that more than 40,000 women in the U.S. will die from the disease. Approximately 12 percent of women will be diagnosed with breast cancer at some point during their lifetime, based on 2013-2015 data.

Using its novel technology platform and strong R&D capabilities, BriaCell believes it has the opportunity to address this market, as well as have the opportunity to develop immunotherapy candidates for other cancer indications.

The global cancer immunotherapy market is expected to reach nearly USD$203 billion by 2025.

Next-generation energy and technology company Zenergy Brands, Inc. (OTC: ZNGY) aspires to be the industry leader and facilitator of change by leading small and medium-sized customers toward sustainable energy efficiency and conservation goals (http://nnw.fm/7aVbo).

Zenergy Brands, Inc. (ZNGY) is the nation’s leading next-generation energy and technology company operating in the emerging smart energy, conservation, and utility industries. Headquartered in Texas, Zenergy provides an entire suite of conservation-based products and services that enable clients to achieve sustainability goals, reduce carbon emissions and improve their bottom line. The company’s cutting-edge Zero Cost Program™ reduces utility expenses by 20 percent to 60 percent by offering energy conservation, smart controls, and efficiency-based products and services to residential, commercial, industrial and municipal end-use customers.

The Zero Cost Program™ is a financing mechanism that allows customers to reduce water, natural gas and electricity expenses by implementing proven conservation technologies at no out-of-pocket cost. The Zero Cost Program™ enriches businesses by immediately reducing energy consumption through the use of smart controls, building automation, LED lighting solutions, refrigeration optimization, efficient water systems, EC motor controls, demand-side management and load factor correction.

A unique Managed Energy Services Agreement (“MESA”) allows a portion of these utility savings to be retained by Zenergy’s partner financing the upgraded, retrofit equipment and installation costs until a specified repayment period ends. After that, clients reap all the financial rewards of the technologies implemented, which Zenergy estimates should range between 25 percent and 45 percent of total utility costs.

Residential customers seeking cost-effective energy savings can also choose from a suite of “Smart Home” products including home automation, security monitoring, and energy conservation services that can be controlled 24/7 from the comfort and convenience of their smartphones or internet-connected smart devices. Zenergy’s residential program offers partnership opportunities for homebuilders and residential, multi-family real estate developers to provide smart home technologies to high-end customers.

Zenergy Brands’ acquisition of Enertrade Electric LLC, a fully operating, licensed Texas-based Retail Electric Provider (REP), further increases the company’s value proposition. Zenergy CEO Alex Rodriguez said this new subsidiary adds an essential complementary service to the company’s suite of smart energy products and services.

“Since our founding, our vision has been to converge smart controls (home and building automation) with energy conservation and retail energy to deliver the comprehensive smart energy service to customers,” Rodriguez said.

On a global scale, residential and commercial buildings account for nearly 45 percent of the world’s total energy consumption. Improving the energy efficiency of these homes and buildings is often a more affordable way to reduce harmful gas emissions while minimizing the need for new energy production. According to Navigant Research, global revenue for energy-efficient commercial building retrofits alone is expected to grow from $71.4 billion in 2016 to $100.8 billion in 2025. At the same time, the energy-efficient devices market is expected to reach a market size of $908 billion by 2022. Increasing demands for reduction in energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions along with concerns over climate change are contributing factors driving the market’s overall growth.

First Cobalt Corp. (TSX.V: FCC) (OTC: FTSSF)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight First Cobalt Corp. (FTSSF).

First Cobalt Corp. (TSX-V: FCC; ASX: FCC; OTCQX: FTSSF) (the "Company") is pleased to announce that Mr. Ryan Snyder has joined the executive team as Chief Financial Officer. Trent Mell, President & Chief Executive Officer, commented: "As a we sharpen our focus on our flagship Iron Creek Project, we are consolidating the organization by closing the Vancouver office and moving the finance and accounting function to the Toronto head office. I look forward to working with Ryan, who brings extensive financial and strategic experience including financial reporting, business planning, project modeling and M&A." Also today, NetworkNewsWire released a report on the company detailing how FTSSF is following up on the encouraging September 26 maiden resource estimate for its Idaho exploration project (http://nnw.fm/V3LIy) with news that drilling within wider mineralized zones has encountered high-grade copper and cobalt intercepts, confirming metal zonation and establishing further options for development.

First Cobalt Corp. (TSX.V: FCC) (OTC: FTSSF), with headquarters in Canada, is the largest land owner in the Cobalt Camp in Ontario with control of over 10,000 hectares (nearly 25,000 acres) of prospective land and 50 historic cobalt/silver mines. The company’s assets include a mill and the only permitted cobalt extraction refinery in North America capable of producing battery material, providing an integrated solution for cobalt projects. First Cobalt began drilling in the historic Cobalt Camp in 2017 and seeks to build shareholder value through new discovery and growth opportunities.

First Cobalt’s 2018 $C7 million drilling program, which includes testing different styles of mineralized areas throughout the Cobalt Camp in more than 10 past-producing mines known to contain cobalt, is a significant expansion over its 2017 exploration activities. The company received positive test drill results from the Bellellen mine location, with early results confirming the presence of high-grade cobalt and nickel, prompting First Cobalt to increase its drilling program at that site. A prospecting sampling program of existing muckpiles around the camp’s historic mines, trenches, pits and surrounding bedrock could provide an early production scenario.

First Cobalt Corp. is moving quickly to leverage its potential against an economic background that estimates global consumption for refined cobalt is set to grow at an average rate of approximately 5 percent per annum for the next 10 years. The electric vehicle market, in particular, is driving this sector since more than 50 percent of the world’s current production of cobalt is used in the manufacture of rechargeable lithium-ion batteries. The global lithium-ion battery market, as estimated by Zion Market Research, indicates the value at around USD $31 billion in 2016 and is expected to generate revenue of nearly USD $68 billion by end of 2022, growing at a compound annual growth rate of slightly above 17 percent.

First Cobalt is embracing innovation in the mining sector, utilizing a digital compilation of 100-plus years of mining and geological data spanning the historically prolific Cobalt Mining Camp’s lifespan. First Cobalt’s management team is also assessing the ability of artificial intelligence to accelerate the discovery cycle. As a member of the Mineral Exploration Research Centre (MERC) and Metal Earth Project, First Cobalt conducts regional geophysical surveys for geological interpretation of structures controlling cobalt-silver mineralization.

The company’s clear pathway to production and cash flow generation includes being one of only four fully permitted cobalt extraction refineries in Canada with significant material and processing infrastructure on site. With the price of cobalt increasing significantly and its importance in the growing battery market underpinning a strong long-term demand forecast, First Cobalt Corp. and its mining interests are primed for success.

First Cobalt Corp. President and CEO Trent Mell, a mining executive and capital markets professional with extensive international transactional experience, is joined by a team of reputable and seasoned deal-makers, mine builders and mine operators with decades of global experience in exploration, business development, geoscience, engineering and finance.

First Cobalt Corp. (FTSSF), closed the day's trading session at $0.21, off by 0.76%, on 117,175 volume with 32 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 214,734 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.1983/$1.3041.

StateSourced is not a prepaid or gift card, which is an important variable for merchants since standard banking institutions have not offered this form of payment processing to the legal cannabis industry. Federal law still considers marijuana illegal under the Controlled Substances Act, although 29 states and the District of Columbia have legalized the plant either for medicinal or recreational uses or both. This restriction has kept financial institutions at bay since most banks are federally insured and haven’t been inclined to venture into the nascent industry.

Medical Cannabis Payment Solutions is able to offer its StateSourced card on a state-by-state basis where the card can be used in purchasing product from a legal, authorized vendor, providing a much-needed option for consumers and businesses alike. In another first, the company is collaborating with First Bitcoin Capital Corporation to integrate First Bitcoin’s cryptocurrency ($Weed) with Medical Cannabis Payment Solutions’ StateSourced payment gateway. This collaboration will allow state-licensed marijuana establishments across the nation to accept both StateSourced debit cards and cryptocurrencies such as WeedCoin and Bitcoin.

Medical Cannabis Payment Solutions president and CEO Jeremy Roberts and his executive team are working with state lawmakers to introduce legislation in an effort to address the growing problems in banking for the medical cannabis industry. For companies in the emerging legal cannabis industry, where retail and non-retail transactions such as vendor payments and payroll are almost exclusively paid for with cash, the solutions offered by StateSourced can help businesses avoid the inherent risks associated with a cash-intensive sector. Medical Cannabis Payment Solutions has also signed its first StateSourced contract with a Las Vegas-based vertically integrated marijuana establishment.

“We’ve completed our transition from development stage to revenue stage,” says Roberts. “We have just started our business development efforts and the market is responding very well. We anticipate having many more, similar releases.”

Medical Cannabis Payment Solutions provides end-to-end management across multiple systems for medicinal marijuana operations. The company solves the fragmentation problem experienced by many of these rapidly growing companies by identifying tools that are important to dispensaries and customizing those tools to meet the specific needs of this unique industry.

Medical Cannabis Payment Solutions (REFG), closed the day's trading session at $0.0215, off by 6.52%, on 482,244 volume with 49 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 434,923 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.0161/$0.092.

Marifil Mines Ltd. (TSX.V: MFM) (OTC: MFMLF)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight Marifil Mines Ltd. (MFMLF).

Vancouver-based Marifil Mines Ltd. (TSX.V: MFM) (OTCQB: MFMLF) is focused on precious metal and lithium exploration at its projects located in Argentina - a land that is proving ripe with potential. To view the full article, visit http://nnw.fm/4ywZ9.

Marifil Mines Ltd. (TSX.V: MFM) (OTC: MFMLF), headquartered in Vancouver, Canada, is engaged in the exploration, evaluation and acquisition of mineral rich resource properties in Argentina. A rising global demand for cobalt and lithium is generating interest in Marifil Mines and its resources located within South America’s famed “Lithium Triangle,” which include 15,267 hectares spanning its recently acquired Ratones and Fraile claims, as well as two lithium properties covering the southern portions of the Carachi Pampa salar in the Argentine province of Catamarca.

The company’s property also includes the Las Aguilas nickel-copper-cobalt deposit property, with more than four contiguous claims in the San Luis province of Argentina. The Las Aguilas property, which is 100% owned by Marifil, is noted as one of the largest cobalt properties in Argentina. Other noteworthy properties in the company’s portfolio include the Toruel copper-silver property, with more than two contiguous claims, and additional potash properties in Punta Colorada, Pedernal and El Carmen.

Marifil’s sizable portfolio of cobalt and lithium claims in what is recognized as the world’s most prolific mining jurisdiction for these resources strategically positions the company to benefit as global initiatives push demand for lithium-ion batteries toward a frenzy. Zion Market Research, a leading research and consulting firm, has forecast that the lithium-ion battery market could hit $67 billion by 2022, realizing a CAGR of more than 13.7% from 2017-2022. Both lithium and cobalt are major components of these energy storage solutions, with industry data indicating that the battery industry currently consumes roughly 42 percent of global cobalt production.

The company is reviving a lithium exploration program that was active in Argentina a decade ago, building on an unexplored mine it owns there. Marifil will utilize a large proprietary geologic and geochemical data base it developed during its 2009 lithium exploration program in the Salta and Catamarca province sites to resume lithium exploration in the region.

Applications for a second mine and negotiations to purchase a third property are underway, which would establish a significant property portfolio of ‘salar’ brine evaporation lakes. Hydrothermal solutions emanating from regional faults in area volcanoes often enrich the brine with lithium, boron, potassium and magnesium.

In addition to nearly 152,000 acres of lithium-staked properties, Marifil owns 887 acres of land for cobalt exploration and 91,565 acres of gold mining rights in an advanced exploration stage in San Roque that company engineers indicate has high gold discovery potential with “excellent infrastructure and mining friendly politics.”

To date, more than $7.5 million has been invested assessing Marifil’s flagship San Roque gold property, including nearly 16,000 meters of diamond core drilling. The property is jointly owned by Marifil and Novagold Resources, with Marifil holding a 51% stake and serving as the current project operator. The company recently commenced a drilling campaign to further evaluate several deposits of significant gold-silver-indium-lead-zinc mineralization on a 4-kilometer-long zone.

Marifil has closed a private placement funding for $2 million that will inject additional life into the company. Proceeds from the funding will benefit acquisition plans, the ongoing drilling program at Marifil’s gold claim and other output from its general working capital accounts.

Robert Abenante, a chartered professional account, serves as president and chief executive officer of the company. He has extensive experience in the public markets and has served as an officer and director of several public and private companies across various industries, with particular success in the mining sector.

Marifil Mines Ltd. (MFMLF), closed the day's trading session at $0.095, off by 6.95%, on 84,180 volume with 14 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 26,167 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.009/$0.165.

American Premium Water Corp. (HIPH)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight American Premium Water Corp. (HIPH).

American Premium Water Corporation (OTC: HIPH) was highlighted today in a report by Investorideas.com, a global news source covering leading sectors including marijuana and hemp stocks. The report is a sector snapshot with a focus on CBD and THC beverage deals that are brewing amid the legal cannabis market in Canada opening up new opportunities.

American Premium Water Corp. (HIPH), headquartered in Playa Vista, California, is a diversified holding company, manufacturer, distributor and marketer of branded consumer products. HIPH, the acronym for “Hi-Power of Hydro,” maintains a portfolio of subsidiaries catering to the health-conscious consumer and luxury fashion brand connoisseur. The company’s two main pillars focus on the development of health and beauty biotech, dedicated to unlocking the power of hydrogen and nanotechnologies. Paired with cannabidiol or “CBD” in a unique beverage, the technology is proving to be a significant health and wellness option for astute consumers.

Among the company’s holdings are:

  • LALPINA Hydro beverages mix hydrogen with nanotechnology into consumer beverages that combine the best of health, nutrition and fitness to deliver short and long-term therapeutic health benefits. LALPINA Hydro utilizes atomic molecular hydrogen, or diatomic hydrogen, which converts antioxidants in the body to H2O to further enhance hydration, which helps increase endurance, reduce lactic acid and melt away fatigue. Over 500 peer-reviewed articles demonstrate hydrogen to have therapeutic potential in essentially every organ of the human body and in 150 different human disease models.
  • LALPINA Hydro CBD is a technically superior CBD-infused beverage. Using hydro and nanotechnology, LALPINA Hydro CBD encapsulates water molecules with cannabidiol molecules, making them infinitely more bioavailable and accelerating delivery to the body’s cells and tissues. Each bottle of LALPINA Hydro CBD contains 3 million nanograms of CBD free from the psychoactive compound THC (tetrahydrocannabinol). HIPH is the first to introduce a hydro-nano CBD-infused beverage on the market, which is a more effective delivery mechanism for administering CBD into the blood stream than traditional beverages or oils, with up to a 90 percent higher absorption rates.

The company recently signed a distribution agreement for its subsidiary, LALPINA Hydro CBD, to sell its beverages to two SinglePoint, Inc. (OTCQB: SING) e-commerce channels: SingleSeed.com and DIGSHydro.com. SING is a technology and investment company with a portfolio that includes mobile payments, blockchain solutions and ancillary cannabis services. HIPH will drop ship its product to the customers.

HIPH CEO Ryan Fishoff said the e-commerce arrangements “could bring in excess of a million of revenue over the life of the agreement.” The agreement serves as a pillar of the company’s e-commerce distribution strategy, driving awareness and impressions for the LALPINA brand.

In addition, HIPH seeks to market emerging fashion brands and leverage its relationship with classic retail partners while incorporating disruptive blockchain technologies to expand its retail footprint with the following:

  • Gents, a producer of luxury hats and other fine accessories and apparel, was acquired in September 2017. Gents is distributed across many luxury retail outlets including Saks Fifth Avenue, Bloomingdales, Nordstrom, and other high-end channels. The company added the Worthy streetwear brand to its portfolio in June 2018.
  • HIPH also acquired the license to operate the FashionCoinX exchange, a blockchain exchange focused on creating utility tokens for the fashion industry, and created THRD Coin, a multi-branded utility rewards token that is also the first token to be traded on the exchange. The company is leveraging its retail footprint and expertise in the fashion and apparel space with the burgeoning blockchain sector.

American Premium Water Corp. (HIPH), closed the day's trading session at $0.079895, off by 11.23%, on 13,976,824 volume with 930 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 16,093,689 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.0035/$0.132.

Koios Beverage Corp. (CSE: KBEV) (OTC: KBEVF)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight Koios Beverage Corp. (KBEVF).

Koios Beverage Corp. (CSE: KBEV) (OTC: KBEVF) was highlighted today in a report by CannabisNewsWire explaining how doctors in the UK (Wales, Scotland and England) will soon start prescribing cannabis for their patients who have conditions that can be improved by this substance. This announcement was made by the UK Home Secretary, Sajid Javid. He stated that cannabis would see its status changed from a schedule 1 substance (substances with no therapeutic value but having a high likelihood of being abused) to a schedule 2 controlled substance.

Koios Beverage Corp. (CSE: KBEV) (OTC: KBEVF) develops and distributes nature-based products that boost brain function, enhance health, and improve productivity. Its core vision is to help a billion people worldwide live more productively through the development of nootropics, which are supplements that improve cognitive abilities.

The company’s flagship product, Koios, is a GMP-certified dietary supplement. Made from natural ingredients and backed by science, Koios is designed to improve focus, memory, mental drive, clarity and energy. The company produces Koios in the following formulations:

  • Powder supplements containing nootropics as well as caffeine and lion’s mane and chaga mushrooms;
  • Vegan-friendly capsules;
  • Canned beverages containing nootropics along with MCT oil to burn fat and increase metabolism.

Not to be mistaken with prescription-only drugs which are at times used for similar effects, nootropics are over-the-counter dietary supplements; some of which, like Koios, contain ingredients that are currently used in the treatment of patients with Alzheimer’s disease. The global field of nootropics is growing rapidly and expected to reach USD $6,059.4 Mn by 2024 with a CAGR of 17.9 percent from 2016 to 2024.

According to media reports, there is believed to be significant and growing use of nootropics among high-achieving students and professionals. The UK’s leading Guardian newspaper found that nootropics are commonly used in Silicon Valley by computer industry professionals who want to “hack” their minds and maximize their productivity without any possible negative effects on the brain.

Koios was born out of the personal struggles of its founder and CEO, Chris Miller, who has ADHD. Miller found that the symptoms of his condition held him back when navigating the competitive modern workplace. Unhappy with the effects of the Adderall he was prescribed, Chris began a search for a natural remedy that would improve his attention and mental capacity.

Speaking of his struggles at this time, Miller says, “Coffee and energy drinks were no longer helping me. Eventually, I was drinking so much caffeine that I was beginning to notice negative and troubling health effects.” He adds, “I believed there had to be a better way. Better technology that the earth was providing that I could implement and not only boost my daily performance but take care of my brain and body long-term.” After years of experiments and with the help of leading scientists, he developed Koios, named after the Greek Titan who represented rational intelligence.

Koios contains the following ingredients, among others:

  • Vitamin B12: Crucial for the function of the nervous system and the synthesis of DNA, B12 also helps in the creation of red blood cells.
  • Vitamin B6: This vitamin is crucial for brain development among children and brain function in adults. B6 is also important in the production of key hormones: serotonin, which regulates mood, norepinephrine, which helps us handle stress, and dopamine.
  • Huperzine A: Developed from the Chinese club moss plant, huperzine A is used on Alzheimer’s patients to boost their memories. It is also used to raise energy levels and alertness and is the subject of medical trials to test its efficacy when combined with other drugs.
  • Bacopa: Also known as brahmi, bacopa is an Indian herb used in Ayurvedic medicine to improve concentration and memory. Modern science has recognized its effectiveness, and it is used to treat symptoms caused by Alzheimer’s disease, ADHD and anxiety.
  • Ciwujia: Sports scientists have been interested in this herb since they heard of how mountain climbers in Tibet use it to boost their performance at high altitudes. Peer-reviewed research has shown that Ciwujia has clear positive effects on endurance.

A full breakdown of Koios’ active ingredients is available on the company website.

Additionally, safety is paramount for Koios, with all its products developed in a high-grade nutraceutical laboratory which is GMP-certified and in compliance with FDA guidelines. Koios only uses high-quality ingredients sourced from the best possible locations in order to deliver a product that is not only safe but also “one of the world’s greatest nootropic blends.”

The company’s products can be found online and in stores, both across the United States and internationally, via a continuously growing distribution network.

Koios CEO Chris Miller is supported by a team with strong credentials in medical supplement start-ups, corporate finance and sales, which includes CFO/Director Anthony Jackson, Director Scott Walters, Director Konstantine Lichtenwald and Vice President of Sales Gina Burrus.

With people seeking a mental edge and cognitive boost, Koios believes that there is an opening in the market for its nature-based, over-the-counter nootropics, especially when current prescription medicines have worrying side effects..

Koios Beverage Corp. (KBEVF), closed the day's trading session at $0.312, off by 20.61%, on 158,764 volume with 107 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 417,368 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.001/$0.8142.

Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (CSE: LXX) (OTC: LXRP)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (LXRP).

Lexaria Bioscience (CSE: LXX) (OTCQX: LXRP), in a strategic effort to build its global intellectual property (IP) portfolio, has filed a new patent application for its proprietary absorption technology platform. To view the full article, visit http://nnw.fm/aA71h. Also today, CannabisNewsWire released a report featuring the company, which examines how Lexaria Bioscience has developed patented technology that helps make cannabis available to nonsmokers; the company’s innovative development methods make cannabis’ active chemicals more palatable and more effective in food and drink. Additionally, LXRP was highlighted today in a report explaining how Doctors in the UK (Wales, Scotland and England) will soon start prescribing cannabis for their patients who have conditions that can be improved by this substance.

Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (CSE: LXX) (OTC: LXRP) has developed and out-licenses its proprietary technology for improved taste, rapidity, and delivery of bioactive compounds, including cannabinoids. Though boasting a wide range of health benefits, cannabinoids are traditionally poorly absorbed by the body’s gastrointestinal tract. To achieve higher effectiveness, consumers usually default to smoking. Lexaria provides a superior administration method by delivering hemp oil ingredients – or through locally licensed partners, cannabis oil ingredients – through a patented process within food products.

The key differentiator between Lexaria’s products and others on the market is the company’s disruptive technology proven to enhance the absorption of orally ingested cannabinoids while improving the “unusual” taste of cannabinoids and allowing for lower overall dosing with higher efficacy. Lexaria is primarily a B2B enterprise, and is in licensing discussions or has existing agreements with companies in Canada, the largest-market states in the USA, and internationally. Lexaria has also developed its own brands partly for demonstration purposes, utilizing its patented technology to infuse hemp oil ingredients within lipids in popular foods. These brands include ViPova™, Lexaria Energy Foods, and TurboCBD™.

In 2015, Lexaria commissioned an independent, third-party lab to test its technology under carefully monitored in vitro conditions. Results showed that the company’s technological process and lipid formulation both improve intestinal absorption as much as 500%. Additional follow-up studies in human volunteers suggested that Lexaria’s processed, lipid-infused tea may be more effective in an actual gastrointestinal system than in an in vitro simulation with results indicating as much as a 1,000% increase in overall absorption.

Lexaria also has an R&D partnership with the Canadian government’s National Research Council. That R&D is expected to characterize molecular bond formation theorized to occur with Lexaria’s unique technology between the lipid delivery agents and the bioactive substances it processes and combines. Results from this R&D are expected to support accelerating B2B relationships – not just in the cannabis industry, but also to support new B2B business relationships in the fields of vitamins, NSAIDs, and nicotine delivery. All of these sectors expected to offer additional future growth potential.

Aside from testing, a critical component of Lexaria Bioscience’s business model is a strong intellectual property portfolio that utilizes the most commonly used food processing techniques. As of 2017, the company’s patent portfolio includes 19 patent applications filed and pending in more than 40 countries around the world. The most recent patent applications expand Lexaria’s lipophilic food and beverage composition claims to include the processing of cannabinoids, vitamins, NSAIDs and nicotine in many of the world’s most commonly used food processing ingredients. Lexaria is expecting additional new patent awards both in the USA and internationally in 2017 and 2018.

Royalties play a vital role in Lexaria’s revenue-generating business model. The company out-licenses its technology (royalty) to third party partners, and has several deals signed and/or pending. The company’s growth initiatives are guided by a management team headed by CEO Chris Bunka, a serial entrepreneur who has raised more than $50 million in working capital for the companies he has led over the course of his career. He is supported by a team of professionals with extensive experience in pharmaceutical and bioscience sectors, invention, toxicology, consumer goods, and other relevant skillsets.

Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (LXRP), closed the day's trading session at $1.50, off by 14.29%, on 338,100 volume with 520 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 228,404 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.3621/$2.54.

Located in Miami, Florida – the “yacht capital of the world” – Victory Marine has over 20 years of experience in an industry hailed as “an American pastime and economic engine” by the National Marine Manufacturers Association (“NMMA”).

Victory Marine Holdings Corp. (VMHG) is a world-class yacht sales, brokerage and consulting firm with a sprawling inventory of new and used boats, financing, insurance, documentation and recreational marine accessories. Located in Miami, Florida – the “yacht capital of the world” – Victory Marine has over 20 years of experience in an industry hailed as “an American pastime and economic engine” by the National Marine Manufacturers Association (“NMMA”).

According to the NMMA, marine sales reached $39 billion in 2017. To capture its share of this market, Victory Marine has established partnerships with several selective manufacturers and is pursuing opportunities for vertical growth. While the company’s near-term focus is on expansion of its inventory and sales team, its longer-term plans reflect the current state of the broader yacht industry.

Marine sales are at a 10-year high, and though yacht manufacturers are operating at full capacity, delivery of some products can take longer than 18 months. As a result, Victory Marine is taking steps to establish its own pipeline. Management is currently in negotiations with several yacht manufacturers to build the company its own unique, private-label design, which would enable Victory Marine to quickly deliver a superior product to its clients.

Demand for recreational boat trailers is also on the rise, with growth reported for nearly all powerboat segments. Florida continues to ride the top of that crest with sales of powerboats, trailers, and accessories up 10 percent in 2017 to $2.9 billion, followed by Texas ($1.7 billion) and Michigan ($982 million).

Victory Marine’s wholly owned Excalibur Trailers USA subsidiary is set to take advantage of this market, and is approved by the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE International) to build custom marine aluminum trailers for recreational boats, as well as for commercial boat transport. Excalibur Trailers USA has filed the necessary paperwork to trademark its brand name and logo and is seeking a suitable manufacturing facility in South Florida for production of powerboat, sailboat, catamaran, powerboat and Jet Ski trailers.

Leading Victory Marine to capture its share of the market is company CEO Orlando Hernandez, whose experience in the marine industry includes negotiation, business planning, investor relations, operations management and sales. He is joined by veteran yacht broker Gary Beaver, who has more than 20 years of successful yacht sales and industry experience. Beaver brings to Victory Marine his portfolio of approximately 25 vessel listings, valued in excess of $10 million.
