If you’ve decided to buy an electric vehicle this year, you may not be able to negotiate a low price because of the high demand. The reality is that many buyers of electric vehicles won’t be able to negotiate pricing. For instance, certain car producers, such as Tesla, never bargain over pricing. In other situations, dealers are unlikely to lower the MSRPs of their small selection of electric vehicles.

However, haggling with dealers can be an important aspect of purchasing a car, especially an electric vehicle. Find out how to purchase your next electric vehicle at the lowest cost possible.

Be adaptable and think about using a hybrid. Flexibility when shopping, specifically for electric vehicles, get the greatest deals. If you’re willing to explore a car with a few distinctive specifications or perhaps an older vehicle as compared to a new one, then you are well placed to bargain for a large discount. Additionally, if your desired vehicle is not a hybrid, then consider one, because there are more hybrid model options available as they are significantly less in demand than electric vehicles and are less expensive to purchase.

Perform research before contact. Electric vehicles are complicated, especially for new buyers. It’s critical to research the market and be aware of typical rates for the particular electric vehicle you are considering. This can help you establish a strong negotiating position and determine whether the dealership is providing a reasonable price.

As with gas cars, when dealers compete, you win. Stimulating rivalry between dealers in the same region is another strategy that can be used with both electric and internal combustion engine vehicles. Never be scared to do shop comparison and check prices at other dealerships. This will improve your understanding of the market and provide you with more negotiating power.

Recognize your limit and be ready to walk. Enter the conversation with a figure that you are not willing to exceed and hold on to if negotiation talks are unsuccessful. Most dealerships will be happy to negotiate. If the price isn’t right for you, don’t feel rushed to buy.

Negotiate the financing if they won’t change their mind about the sticker price. Before you engage in negotiations, ensure your credit score is good. Dealers may make up the difference in the finance department when they are unable to negotiate on pricing.

Be courteous and professional. Throughout the bargaining process, avoid being harsh, unkind or overly demanding. Keep in mind that the dealership is in a profit-making business. Courtesy and professionalism are paramount. This could result in a more favorable deal as well as help establish a good rapport with the dealership.

With time, it will become easier for motorists to buy EVs directly from automakers such as Lucid Motors (NASDAQ: LCID) at a pricing level that will likely be better than what dealerships can offer.

Lucid Motors (LCID), closed Tuesday's trading session at $11.69, off by 0.510638%, on 50,844,447 volume. The average volume for the last 3 months is 915,650 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $6.09/$30.85.

The demand for precious metals has increased greatly these last few years. Precious metals such as silver and gold are great for introducing a bit of stability into your portfolio, particularly if you’re keen on diversifying it. While traditional currencies tend to fluctuate in value over time, especially during times of economic upheaval when their purchasing power can reduce drastically, precious metals tend to maintain their value.

This means that adding some gold or silver to your portfolio can allow you to retain your purchasing power, even as economic inflation reduces the utility of fiat currencies such as the U.S. dollar and U.K. pound.

If you’re looking to diversify your portfolio and offer some protection to your holdings amid current inflation and projections for even worse economic performance, you should strongly consider adding precious metals to your portfolio. So, how exactly should a relatively green investor go about adding precious metals to their investment portfolios?

Well, the first thing you should do is acquaint yourself with the gold/silver ratio, which is typically expressed as the number of ounces of silver it takes to purchase an ounce of gold. This ratio tends to fluctuate within a broad but discernible range and is often reliant on the emotional state of investors who invest their cash in the precious metals market.

Investors interested in precious metals are more likely to avoid volatile silver in favor of safe and stable gold when they do not foresee monetary disruptions such as inflation. This causes gold prices to rise relative to silver prices, resulting in a high gold/silver ratio.

On the other hand, investors tend to gravitate toward silver due to its greater upside potential when they expect inflation or some other kind of currency instability. In this case, gold and silver prices both rise, but the gold/silver ratio tends to fall as investor interest in silver increases its prices faster than gold prices.

These price fluctuations tend to occur within the 40 to 80 range, meaning 40 to 80 ounces of silver for an ounce of gold. A higher number indicates that silver is fairly affordable relative to gold, while a lower number indicates that gold is fairly affordable relative to silver, with the current ratio of 75 implying that silver is undervalued and should be favored over gold by investors, at least in the near-term.

A gold/silver ratio of 60% to 40% can be beneficial for an investor who wants the security of both gold and silver in their portfolio. If physical gold isn’t appealing, you could add gold stocks after doing your due diligence on leading companies such as Royal Gold Inc. (NASDAQ: RGLD).

Royal Gold Inc. (RGLD), closed Tuesday's trading session at $127.03, off by 0.641377%, on 1,094,875 volume. The average volume for the last 3 months is 45,971 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $84.54/$147.70.

The QualityStocks Company Corner

BiondVax Pharmaceuticals Ltd. (NASDAQ: BVXV)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight BiondVax Pharmaceuticals Ltd. (NASDAQ: BVXV).

Macular degeneration is an eye disorder that commonly affects people aged 50 years andolder. It occurs when the inner layers of the macula, a region ofthe retina that provides the eye with a clear vision in the directline of sight, begin to break down and function less effectively.Although we don’t know precisely what causes macular degeneration,research indicates that it may be due to a combination ofenvironmental factors, including diet and obesity coupled withfamily genes and age. Close to 20 million Americans aged 40 andolder are currently living with some kind of age-related macular degeneration (AMD), and the condition is a leading cause of visual impairment and irreversible blindness across the globe. Of the nearly 20 million Americans withage-related macular degeneration, around 1% will experience vision-threatening AMD. Researchers from the New York Eye and Ear Infirmary of Mount Sinai recently published a study indicating that two ocular diseases maycontribute to the development of AMD. The study found that twonatural deposits called subretinal drusenoid deposit (SSD) and drusen may contribute to the onset of age-relatedmacular degeneration. For their research, the investigators studiedparts of 23 different eyes in 18 patients who were suffering from advanced AMD.Companies such as BiondVax Pharmaceuticals Ltd. (NASDAQ: BVXV) have drug-development pipelines that include potential candidatestargeting macular degeneration and other conditions whose clinicalneeds aren’t being sufficiently met at the moment. The success ofthese programs could offer hope to AMD patients.

BiondVax Pharmaceuticals Ltd. (NASDAQ: BVXV) is a biopharmaceutical company focused on developing, manufacturing and commercializing innovative products for the prevention and treatment of infectious diseases and other illnesses.

In collaboration with the prestigious Max Planck Institute for Multidisciplinary Sciences (MPG) and the University Medical Center Göttingen (UMG), both in Germany, BiondVax is developing a pipeline of innovative nanosized antibody (NanoAb) therapies addressing diseases underserved by current treatments and with large and growing markets, such as COVID-19, asthma and psoriasis.

NanoAbs, also known as VHH-antibodies or Nanobodies, are alpaca-derived nanosized antibodies that exhibit multiple significant competitive advantages over existing antibody therapies, including stability at high temperatures, superior binding affinity, more effective and convenient routes of administration and efficient production. BiondVax is uniquely positioned to advance nanosized antibody innovation from R&D through commercialization.

The company’s highly experienced and successful pharmaceutical industry leadership team includes former senior executives from Novartis, GSK and Bristol-Myers Squibb.

Since its founding, BiondVax has executed eight clinical trials, including a seven-country, 12,400-participant Phase 3 trial of a prior influenza vaccine candidate, and it built, owns and operates a 20,000 sq. ft. state-of-the-art GMP biologics manufacturing facility housing its laboratories, production facilities and offices.

Lead Candidate: Inhaled COVID-19 NanoAb

In December 2021, BiondVax signed definitive agreements with the Max Planck Society – parent organization of the Max Planck Institute for Multidisciplinary Sciences– and the UMG to enter a strategic collaboration for the development and commercialization of innovative COVID-19 NanoAbs.

The company is planning a rapid development path that leverages its expertise and capabilities in biological drug development and manufacturing. BiondVax anticipates preclinical proof-of-concept results for an inhaled COVID-19 NanoAb by the end of 2022, with initial Phase 1/2a human clinical trial results expected in 2023.

The intended inhaled mechanism of delivery of BiondVax’s COVID-19 NanoAb formulation may serve as a significant differentiator when compared to approved monoclonal antibodies, which are injected. Inhaled delivery has shown to be cheaper, more convenient and likely safer for patients and providers.

NanoAb Pipeline: Psoriasis, Asthma and More

The COVID-19 NanoAb development agreement is part of a broader five-year research collaboration agreement signed in March 2022 covering discovery, development and commercialization of NanoAbs for several other disease indications with large market medical needs, including asthma, psoriasis, macular degeneration and psoriatic arthritis.

BiondVax has an exclusive worldwide license for development and commercialization of COVID-19 NanoAbs and exclusive options for similar worldwide licenses for NanoAbs for the above mentioned additional large market disorders currently underserved by approved therapeutic antibodies.

Academic research teams from MPG and UMG have verified strong affinity by the new NanoAbs to their biological target molecules and high thermostability. They have also demonstrated strong neutralization by several NanoAb candidates of their respective target molecules. Neutralization studies of the other NanoAbs are expected to begin later in 2022.

Based on the promising results, BiondVax will focus development efforts beginning with the following NanoAbs:

La Victoria has good infrastructure, with access to road, water and electricity, and is located at an altitude that ranges from 3,150 meters to 4,400 meters above sea level.

The company has a strong management and technical team working diligently to uncover the value of both Iska Iska and La Victoria. Eloro is based in Toronto, Canada.


Iska Iska – Potosi, Bolivia

Iska Iska is associated with a Miocene possibly collapsed/resurgent caldera, emplaced on Ordovician age rocks with major breccia pipes, dacitic domes and hydrothermal breccias. The property is wholly controlled by the title holder, Empresa Minera Villegas S.R.L. It is located 48 kilometers north of Tupiza city, in the Sud Chichas Province of the Department of Potosi. This is an important mineral deposit type in the prolific South Mineral Belt of Bolivia. Eloro commissioned a NI 43-101 Technical Report on Iska Iska, which was completed by Micon International Limited and is available on Eloro’s website and under its filings on SEDAR.

A fully financed drill program is currently underway on the property, situated near world-class deposits including Silver Sand, San Bartolomé, Pulacayo, San Cristobal, San Vicente, Chorolque, Tasna, Choroma and Siete Suyos. Iska Iska is in the southwest part of the Eastern Cordillera, which hosts a number of major polymetallic mines and mineral deposits. Drilling and continuous channel sampling results have demonstrated some very high metal values, especially silver and tin, within an immense system, where mineralization has been encountered in every drill hole to date. The company believes there is excellent potential for world-class bulk mineable deposits.

La Victoria – Ancash, Peru

The La Victoria project, targeting gold and silver production, is situated near world-class, low-cost gold producers Pan American Silver and Barrick Gold Corporation. Located in Ancash Department, La Victoria sits on the western slopes of the Peruvian Andes. The property is located 12 hours from Lima, with a travel distance of 600 kilometers.

Ucore Rare Metals Inc. (TSX.V: UCU) (OTCQX: UURAF)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight Ucore Rare Metals Inc. (TSX.V: UCU) (OTCQX: UURAF).

Ucore currently owns REE mining projects and advanced separationtechnology

Commercial demonstration of the company’s RapidSX(TM) technology isongoing

Ucore plans several modern REE refineries in North America, withthe first SMC slated to begin construction in Louisiana in 2023.This planned REE separation and rare earth oxide production plantis scheduled to process 2,000 tons of total rare earth oxides bythe end of 2024, increasing to 5,000 tons in 2026

Through its strategic partnerships with Kingston Process MetallurgyInc., Mech-Chem Associates Inc. and other supporting contractorsand vendors, Ucore is developing a North American REE supply chain

Ucore Rare Metals Inc. (TSX.V: UCU) (OTCQX: UURAF) is engaged in Rare Earth Element (REE) resource development and in commercializing its critical metals separation technology, RapidSX™, for the mining and metals extraction industry. The company is guided by principles of environmental, social and corporate governance (ESG) with a focus on disrupting China’s current dominance of the U.S. REE supply chain.

Ucore’s vision is to become a leading advanced technology company providing best-in-class metal separation products and services to the mining and mineral extraction industry. It plans to aid in the development, through strategic partnerships, of a North American REE supply chain controlled by the U.S. and its allies.

The company intends to contribute to this initiative through the near-term development of a heavy and light rare-earth processing facility in Louisiana and subsequent development of Strategic Metals Complexes (SMCs) in Alaska and Canada, as well as through the longer-term development of its 100%-owned Heavy Rare Earth Element (HREE) mineral resource property at Bokan Mountain on Prince of Wales Island, Alaska.

Ucore is headquartered in Halifax, Nova Scotia.

Projects & Technology

RapidSX™ Demonstration Plant

The Kingston, Ontario, RapidSX™ Demonstration Plant commissioning process is underway. Once commissioned, the plant is designed to demonstrate the commercial capabilities of the RapidSX technology platform.

The RapidSX demo plant will show:

  • The techno-economic advantages of the RapidSX technology platform
  • The processing of tens of tons of heavy and light mixed rare earth element concentrates in a simulated production environment
  • The platform’s ability to operate for thousands of semi-continuous run-time hours
  • Production of high-purity NdPr, praseodymium, neodymium, terbium and dysprosium rare earth elements for early OEM product qualification trials

The demo plant is located within Ucore’s 5,000-square-foot RapidSX Commercialization and Demonstration Facility and is run by its laboratory partner, Kingston Process Metallurgy Inc. (“KPM”).

RapidSX™ Technology

Innovation Metals Corp., acquired by the company in 2020, developed the RapidSX separation technology platform with early-stage assistance from the United States Department of Defense, later resulting in the production of commercial-grade, separated rare earth elements at pilot scale.

RapidSX combines the time-proven chemistry of conventional solvent extraction (SX) with a new column-based platform that significantly reduces time to completion and plant footprint, as well as potentially lowering capital and operating costs. SX is the international REE industry’s standard commercial separation technology and is currently used by all REE producers worldwide for bulk commercial separation of both heavy and light REEs.

Utilizing similar chemistry to conventional SX, RapidSX is not a “new” technology, but it represents a significant improvement on the well-established, well-understood, proven conventional SX separation technology preferred by REE producers.

Strategic Metals Complex

Ucore, engineering partner Mech-Chem Associates Inc. and KPM are developing the full-scale engineering for the company’s first Strategic Metals Complex (SMC). The SMC is a planned REE separation and rare earth oxide production plant slated to commence construction in Louisiana in 2023. It is scheduled to initially process 2,000 tons of total rare earth oxides by the end of 2024, increasing to 5,000 tons in 2026.

Bokan-Dotson Ridge REE Deposit

Ucore has invested over C$35 million to establish and validate the Bokan-Dotson Ridge resource in preparation for mine design and permitting. Initial drilling is complete, and a Preliminary Economic Assessment has been issued. Next steps for the project include a feasibility study, detailed mine design and permit acquisition. The project can be “near shovel ready” for construction in less than 30 months after receipt of the next stage of development funding.

Market Opportunity

According to a report by Grand View Research, the global rare earth elements market was valued at $2.8 billion in 2018 and is forecast to reach a value of $5.6 billion by 2025, achieving a CAGR of 10.4% during the period. Market growth is driven by increasing demand for these elements in the manufacturing of magnets and catalysts for the automotive industry. Rising demand for electric vehicles to reduce CO2 emissions is expected to propel the use of permanent magnets in the production of EV batteries.

China is the major producer and consumer of REEs. To maintain self-sufficiency and to meet future demand, China has been raising the export tariffs on rare earth elements shipped to various countries, including the U.S., Japan, India, Brazil and the European Union. This led to the current supply-demand gap in these countries, as they rely on imports from China.

China reduced the exports of REEs by 72% in the second half of 2010 to preserve its reserves of these elements and continues to export REEs at reduced levels, thereby affecting industries such as automotive, oil and gas, and electronics, which require an ample amount of rare earth elements.

Delic Holdings Corp. (CSE: DELC) (OTCQB: DELCF)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight Delic Holdings Corp. (CSE: DELC) (OTCQB: DELCF).

Bipolar disorder is a mental illness affecting 2.8% of the U.S. population and around 46 million people worldwide. The disorder is characterized by extreme mood swings that include emotional lows (depression) and highs (mania orhypomania). Although there is no permanent cure for bipolardisorder, the condition and its symptoms can be managed through treatments such as mood stabilizers, antidepressants andatypical antipsychotics. In addition, researchers are always on thehunt for safer and more effective treatments for complex mentaldiseases such as bipolar disorder. A study that was recentlypublished in the “Journal of Psychopharmacology sought to understand the impact psilocybin, the main psychoactiveagent in magic mushrooms, would have on people with bipolardisorder. According to the study’s findings, some people reportedthat the psychedelic experience was helpful while others reportednegative outcomes, such as manic symptoms. Plenty of research byentities such as Delic Holdings Corp. (CSE: DELC) (OTCQB: DELCF) is ongoing to indicate more about the therapeutic role ofdifferent psychedelics for different indications. With time, itwill be clearer which substances are better suited to the treatmentof bipolar disorder or other mental health challenges.

Delic Holdings Corp. (CSE: DELC) (OTCQB: DELCF) is the leading psychedelic wellness platform, committed to bringing science-backed benefits to all and reframing the psychedelic conversation. The company owns and operates an umbrella of related businesses, including trusted media and e-commerce platforms like Reality Sandwich and Delic Radio; Delic Labs, the only licensed entity by Health Canada to exclusively focus on research and development of psilocybin vaporization technology; Meet Delic, the premiere psychedelic wellness event; and Ketamine Infusion Centers, one of the largest ketamine clinics in the country.

Delic is backed by a team of industry and cannabis veterans and a diverse network, whose mission is to provide education, research, high-quality products, and treatment options to the masses. Its founders helped build the multi-billion-dollar cannabis industry and aim to do the same in psychedelics as it follows a similar path toward legalization. In its quest to advance the new psychedelic renaissance upon us, Delic has become the pioneer in its field, creating an ecosystem of opportunities by investing in cutting-edge ideas.

The Vancouver-based company was formed in 2019 to address the growing interest in psychedelic wellness backed by science. Delic was the ‎first psychedelic umbrella platform. It is currently a trusted source for those interested in ‎psychedelic culture, education, treatments, and more.

While other emerging companies focus on patent medicine and big pharma for substances limited by government regulation, Delic is blazing a unique trail. It identifies ancillary and fully legal opportunities like IP, new media, live events, ketamine clinics (with the ability to offer additional psychedelic treatments once legalized, and large-scale production and brings them under its big tent of resources and reach.

The Big Problems Delic Is Addressing

  • Fifty percent of Americans will meet the criteria for a mental health condition sometime in their lifetime. The FDA has approved psilocybin therapy as a breakthrough therapy for depression.
  • Every 40 seconds, someone in the world commits suicide. Ketamine has been shown to decrease thoughts of suicide significantly. In 2019, the FDA approved esketamine as a fast-acting antidepressant.
  • Traditional palliative care methods do not eradicate end-of-life (EOL) anxiety. LSD and psilocybin have been shown to reduce EOL anxiety for terminally ill patients. Eighty percent of terminally ill patients with psilocybin sessions experienced significant reductions in depression and anxiety.
  • Approximately 50 million people in the U.S. are addicted to some tobacco product. Research shows that psilocybin is helping people quit smoking.

The Delic Ecosystem

The Delic Ecosystem covers three main areas: media, health, and science. The media focus is educating and motivating the masses through a variety of digital platforms, like Delic’s Reality Sandwich digital magazine, a free public education platform providing psychedelic guides, news and ‎culture (1.4+ million page views in 2020 and 54k social media followers across all platforms); Meet Delic, the first-ever psychedelic wellness summit and the premier psychedelic wellness event based in Las Vegas (over 2,000 live attendees and 5,000+ email subscribers); and Delic Radio (over 43 episodes and 100k total streams). Delic has also been featured in numerous media outlets like Forbes, NBC News, The Joe Rogan Experience, Daily Beast, High Times, and The Dr. Drew Podcast.

The focus of Delic’s health operations is the most accessible psychedelic treatments that can help billions of people live happier lives. Delic does this through one of the largest ketamine clinic chains in the country, Ketamine Infusion Centers (KICs), a limited liability corporation formed under the laws of Arizona that runs three ketamine clinics located in Bakersfield, California, and Phoenix, Arizona. Its management team has over 15 years of experience in the clinic and medical space, scaling and operating over 20 clinics, with a plan to open 10 more clinics in the next 18 months. Together, these clinics have overseen 4,000+ treatments delivered to date.

The focus of Delic’s science operations is developing IP and advanced extraction and testing facilities that are the backbone of the legal market. Delic carries this out through Delic Labs, a licensed cannabis and psilocybin research laboratory based in Vancouver. It’s the only entity licensed by Health Canada to exclusively focus on research and development of psilocybin vaporization technology.

Founded by award-winning chemists, Delic Labs focuses on extraction optimization, analytical testing, and chemical process development to advance the cannabis and psilocybin industries. Health Canada gave it a Section 56 Exemption to work with psilocybin compounds, allowing the company to possess and research these products for development and quality control before they hit the market.

Latest Acquisition – Homestead Book Company

On March 4, 2021, Delic announced its acquisition of Seattle-based Homestead Book Company. Homestead is a legacy counterculture distributor of psychedelic media. It’s also the creator of one of the first self-contained psilocybin mushroom grow kits.

The acquisition of Homestead is an exciting one, as it shows how Delic is increasing accessibility to this nascent industry within regulated jurisdictions. Homestead has sold tens of thousands of mushroom kits globally and was one of the earliest distributors for High Times and many other counterculture publications.

The Homestead acquisition allows Delic to increase its product offerings on its website, Reality Sandwich, which recently hit a record for average monthly traffic of over 200,000 unique visitors and over 2.6 million active readers in 2020.

Silo Pharma Inc. (OTCQB: SILO), a developmental stage biopharmaceutical company, is focused on merging traditional therapeutics with psychedelic research for people suffering from indications such as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), fibromyalgia, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, and other rare neurological disorders. Silo’s mission is to identify assets to license and fund research that the company believes will be transformative to the wellbeing of patients and the health care industry.

Silo is committed to developing innovative solutions to address a variety of underserved conditions. Combining Silo’s resources with world-class medical research partners, the company looks to make significant advances in the medical and psychedelic space.

Silo works to identify and partner with leading medical universities, providing the needed financial resources to develop safe therapeutic treatments while moving cutting-edge research through the clinical stage and into commercialization. The company is well-capitalized with access to additional funds as opportunities present themselves.

Silo recently engaged Donohoe Advisory Associates LLC for consulting and advisory services in connection with the potential uplisting of Silo’s common shares to the Nasdaq Stock Market.


Silo has entered into research agreements and partnerships with multiple leading medical universities.

The company is involved in a sponsored study with Maastricht University utilizing repeated low doses of ketamine and psilocybin to examine the effects on cognitive and emotional dysfunctions in Parkinson’s disease and to understand its mechanism of action. The investigator in the Netherlands is acquiring the substances for the study and will then finalize the documentation to submit to the ethics committee.

Additionally, in June 2021, Silo announced its entry into a scientific research agreement with the University of California San Francisco (UCSF). The agreement will leverage four other clinical trials being planned by the university to determine the effects of psilocybin on inflammation. The study will take place at The Translational Psychedelic Research (TrPR) Program at UCSF.

Silo also recently extended its exclusive option agreement with the University of Maryland, Baltimore (UMB) to explore a novel invention generally known as joint-homing peptides. These peptides are being developed for use in the investigation and treatment of arthritogenic processes and can be used for enhanced targeting of therapeutic agents.

This agreement includes the study of two separate peptides. The first is an option and study for the treatment of arthritis. The second is a patented licensed peptide for the central nervous system, with an initial study for MS autoimmune diseases, in addition to rheumatoid arthritis. Animal studies are underway for both initial indications relating to the UMB agreement, with the potential for studies evaluating additional indications in the future.

Finally, Silo signed an agreement with Columbia University granting it an option to license certain assets currently under development, including an Alzheimer’s disease formulation targeting NDMARs and 5-HT4Rs, as well as a prophylactic treatment for stress-induced disorders and PTSD. Both candidates are currently being tested in mice and have already provided early data.

In addition to its university partnerships, Silo entered a joint venture agreement with Zylo Therapeutics Inc. (“ZTI”) focused on the development of ketamine and psilocybin using ZTI’s Z-Pod™ technology for the transdermal time released delivery of therapeutics. In November 2021, the company announced ZTI’s reception of its first ketamine shipment and initiation of loading ketamine into its Z-Pod technology. In a news release, Eric Weisblum, CEO of Silo, called the development an “important milestone” that will help the company “study the benefits of slow-release transdermal release of Ketamine.”

Coyuchi is the gold standard in sustainable luxury home goods. The company offers sustainably produced luxury organic bedding, sheets, towels, apparel, and other home goods for the environmentally conscious home. With a timeless, coastal-inspired aesthetic, Coyuchi uses only 100% organic cotton materials to manufacture all of its textiles.

The Company was built upon four foundational pillars: protect the planet, innovate circular design, live sustainably, and enrich the community. These guiding principles have proven an effective market strategy. In 2021, Coyuchi earned $33.3 million in net sales, amounting to 26% YoY growth (the industry average is only 5%). It also experienced 2x customer growth to 200,000 active customers, averaging a 35% customer repeat purchase rate.

With a seasoned leadership team, a robust e-commerce shopping experience, and a healthy customer base that drives the fast-growing organic luxury market, Coyuchi is prepared to propel a new phase of growth as the rest of the world finally awakens to sustainability at scale.

A Lucrative Market Ripe for the Taking

The global market for organic bedding, which was estimated at $814.3 million in 2020, is projected to reach $1.1 billion by 2027, growing at a CAGR of 4.9% over that period, according to Research and Markets. More specifically, the domestic organic bedding market is estimated at $240.1 million in 2020, according to Statista. Overall, the U.S. market for home textiles is currently valued at $25 billion annually, and, with a forecast annual growth rate of 5%, it is expected to reach $30 billion by the end of 2025.

Grand View Research reported in 2020 that shifting consumer preference toward high-end lifestyle products is a key factor driving the growth of the organic bedding market. Seventy-four percent of consumers are willing to pay more for sustainable products – a consumer preference that has steadily increased over the last few decades. Millennials especially favor ethical consumption over price when purchasing goods and services, with 83% of millennials reporting that they want the brands they purchase from to align with their beliefs and values ( With a majority millennial customer base, Coyuchi is poised to capitalize on this trend.

Industry Defining Sustainability Practices

For 30 years, Coyuchi has explored organic farming and sustainable textiles and guarantees the highest environmental and ethical standards through a number of certifications such as The Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS), Fair Trade Certified, and MADE SAFE®.

Coyuchi continues to push the organic textile market forward through its circularity initiatives and by supporting cross-industry sustainability advocates. Coyuchi’s mission to bring beauty and comfort to every home without sacrificing the health of our planet has resulted in a number of important sustainability checks and balances.

  • A Circular Business Model: Coyuchi has cultivated a holistic 360-degree approach that contributes to the fight against climate change with its take back and recycling program, 2nd Home™. In 2017, it became the first luxury home brand to implement such an initiative, and, since then, the company has eliminated 68,758 lbs. of toxic chemicals from homes and renewed 6,000 lbs. of textiles.
  • The Coyuchi Climate Council: In early 2022, Coyuchi introduced a cross-disciplinary council with a goal of Net Zero Emissions by 2025 and Net Positive Emissions by 2030. The Coyuchi Climate Council brings together influential minds across fashion, regenerative farming, and sustainability who have the knowledge and experience necessary to achieve climate change.
  • C4: The California Cotton & Climate Coalition: Most recently, Coyuchi announced it is a founding member of C4, which includes innovative, sustainable fashion, apparel, and personal care brands like MATE the Label, Outerknown, Reformation, and Trace. Working together pre-competitively, C4 creates a structure for investing in regionally grown, Climate Beneficial™ cotton and directly supports the livelihoods of the farmers that grew it. Coyuchi is the only home industry brand currently involved in the project.

Omnichannel Business Model

Coyuchi differentiates itself through an omnichannel and circular business model, both of which have proven a clear draw for customers. It was an early adopter of an e-commerce sales and marketing approach (over 80% of its sales are directly through, creating a distinct advantage over incumbents and start-up newcomers in the luxury space. This has resulted in a high lifetime value customer, luxury retail partners such as Nordstrom, and a flagship store in Marin County.

Coyuchi’s Organic Textile Products

Coyuchi’s product assortment consists of consciously designed bedding, bath, apparel, and lifestyle products spread across about 1,400 SKUs. The company believes that its product assortment, produced from 100% organic cotton with Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) certification, provides it with a significant competitive advantage. GOTS is the world’s leading textile processing standard for organic fibers, ensuring the organic status of textiles after harvesting raw materials through environmentally and socially responsible manufacturing all the way to labeling, a major environmental and social benefit over conventional cotton product production.

EverGen Infrastructure Corp. (TSX.V: EVGN) (OTCQX: EVGIF)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight EverGen Infrastructure Corp. (TSX.V: EVGN) (OTCQX: EVGIF).

NetworkNewsWire Editorial Coverage: The market for renewable energy enjoys considerable tailwinds dueto growing concerns about climate change, energy security andglobal initiatives to reign in carbon emissions. The tailwindsturned into a tempest late in 2022 when the Inflation Reduction Act(“IRA”) was signed into law. The IRA is the largest investment ever by the U.S. government in renewableenergies, earmarking $369 billion to accelerate efforts to reducedependence on fossil fuels. According to some experts, the IRA is expected to more than triple America’s clean-energyproduction by 2030, resulting in about 40% of the nation’s energycoming from sources such as wind, solar and renewable natural gas(“RNG”). For this to happen, about 550 gigawatts of new energysupply from green sources will come online over the next sevenyears. Against the backdrop of this generational opportunity, EverGen Infrastructure Corp. (TSX.V: EVGN) (OTCQX: EVGIF) (Profile), a specialist in RNG, has positioned itself as an emerging leaderin the booming renewables sector. Others in the space that arerecognized as leaders include oil juggernaut BP plc (NYSE: BP), utility Fortis Inc. (NYSE: FTS), cleantech 347Water Inc. (NASDAQ: SCWO) and Anaergia Inc. (TSX: ANRG).

To achieve net-zero carbon emissions by 2050, it is estimated that$100 trillion in capital investment is necessary, creatingunprecedented upside for innovators.

EverGen Infrastructure, which owns and operates the firstgrid-connected renewable natural gas facility in North America thathas been producing RNG for more than a decade, has a growingportfolio of projects.

Expansion at EVGN’s three flagship facilities will result in thegeneration of ~480,000 gigajoules of energy annually.

The company expects to significantly grow its Adjusted EBITDA to$13M from its core portfolio versus ~$3M in existing adjustedEBITDA, placing it at an attractive EV/EBITDA ratio compared topeers.

EverGen Infrastructure Corp. (TSX.V: EVGN) (OTCQX: EVGIF) is developing Canada’s Renewable Natural Gas Infrastructure Platform, starting on the west coast in British Columbia. The company is combating climate change and helping communities contribute to a sustainable future by acquiring, developing, building, owning and operating a portfolio of renewable natural gas (RNG), waste-to-energy, and related infrastructure projects.

While EverGen is currently focused on British Columbia, its continued growth is expected across other regions of North America. RNG is produced differently than conventional natural gas, without drilling wells. RNG is derived from biogas, which is captured from decomposing organic waste in landfills, food waste, agricultural waste matter and wastewater from treatment facilities. This waste feedstock is supplied to an anaerobic digester which contains bacteria that breaks down organic matter in the absence of oxygen. The resulting biogas is captured and cleaned to create carbon neutral or carbon negative RNG to be used by the existing North American gas pipeline grid. By capturing these emissions and transforming them into RNG, then combusting into CO2, the overall greenhouse gases (GHG) impact is materially less potent than allowing natural decomposition to release methane into the atmosphere. Liquid and solid digestate matter is a byproduct of the RNG production process and is used as fertilizer and in other applications.

EverGen operates three projects in British Columbia. The company was incorporated in 2020 and went public in 2021, with its common shares listed on the TSX Venture Exchange under ticker symbol ‘EVGN’. In February 2022, EverGen’s common shares began trading on the OTCQB Venture Market in the U.S. under ticker symbol ‘EVGIF’. The company is headquartered in Vancouver.

Portfolio Projects

Fraser Valley Biogas is one of three projects in EverGen’s portfolio. Located in Abbotsford, British Columbia, the facility has been digesting manure and off-farm organics since 2011 and was the first agricultural digester in Canada to produce RNG. The RNG generated through this project is part of a FortisBC program to supply renewable gas to homes, businesses and other customers. Fraser Valley Biogas also provides Abbotsford farms with renewable fertilizer via the digestate produced. EverGen acquired Fraser Valley Biogas early in 2021 and is currently enhancing and expanding the facility. These optimization projects resulted in record production during the month of September 2021, supporting the growing demand for RNG in British Columbia. Optimization activities contributed an additional 18% of RNG production for September and a 9% higher year-to-date production compared to the previous year. The facility produces approximately 80,000 gigajoules of RNG, enough to heat more than 1,000 homes for a year.

Net Zero Waste Abbotsford, a wholly owned EverGen subsidiary and portfolio project, is an existing composting and organic processing facility and RNG expansion project. The British Columbia Utilities Commission recently approved a 20-year offtake agreement between the facility and FortisBC, an electricity and gas utility. Under this agreement, FortisBC will purchase up to 173,000 gigajoules of RNG annually for injection into its natural gas system upon completion of an anaerobic digester project at Net Zero Waste Abbotsford. Once construction is complete, this project is expected to produce enough energy to meet the needs of more than 1,900 homes.

Sea to Sky Soils, a wholly owned EverGen subsidiary and portfolio project, is an existing composting and organic processing facility and potential future RNG expansion project which has been operating near Pemberton, British Columbia, on Lil’wat Nation land since 2012. The Lil’wat Nation is a key partner and supporter of the facility, which has employed a majority of its staff from the First Nation since inception. The Sea to Sky Soils facility processed approximately 160 percent of its forecast tonnage in the second half of 2021. In total, Sea to Sky Soils processed approximately 36,000 tons of organic waste in 2021. The facility is working with the Ministry of Environment to expand its operational capacity in 2022. EverGen has partnered with local municipalities – including Metro Vancouver and the municipality of Pemberton – for the delivery of additional organic waste to the facility. The facility is an important part of EverGen’s RNG infrastructure platform and serves as a source of valuable feedstock to support the company’s existing and future operations.

Market Outlook

A report from Global Market Insights states that the biogas market is projected to see significant growth over the next few years, driven by a shifting preference to utilize biogas to reduce emission levels from traditional fuels. Escalating RNG usage by gas utilities as a sustainable and low carbon alternative to supply heat and electricity in industries and buildings will further stimulate growth. RNG is increasingly deployed across the transport sector, especially for heavy vehicles and vessels, to abate GHG emissions.

Many North American gas utilities have set RNG targets of 5% to 15% of production by volume in 2030, compared to less than 1% by volume in 2020. FortisBC has a goal of including 15% RNG in its gas supply by 2030. EverGen believes this presents a potential C$16 billion+ opportunity for RNG producers.

Correlate Infrastructure Partners (OTCQB: CIPI), a tech-enabled development, finance, and fulfillment platform fordistributed energy solutions across North America, has remainedcommitted to reducing costs, improving comfort, and increasingenergy reliability for home, work, and commercial commerce, whileeliminating the adoption barriers to net-zero carbon goals. Havingstarted with its first offering that allowed for the remote auditof buildings and designing energy optimization without theinvolvement of on-site engineers and auditors, the company hasgrown to offer industry-leading energy solutions and a financingplatform for the industrial and commercial sectors.

Correlate Infrastructure Partners Inc. (OTCQB: CIPI), formerly Triccar Inc., through its two subsidiaries, Correlate and Solar Site Design, offers a complete suite of proprietary clean energy assessment and fulfilment solutions for the commercial real estate industry. The company believes scaling distributed clean energy solutions is critical in mitigating the effects of climate change. CIPI is at the forefront in creating an industry-leading energy solution and financing platform for the commercial and industrial sector. The company sees tremendous market opportunity in reducing site-specific energy consumption and deploying clean energy generation and energy efficiency solutions at scale.

The opportunity exists to remove friction between today’s legacy finance process and the needed clean-energy upgrades developed within the company’s program technologies. For the U.S. to reach its 2050 carbon goals, 200,000 commercial buildings must be retrofitted every year until that date. That represents approximately a 5-10x increase over the 2022 industry process run rate.

CIPI announced completion of its acquisition of 100% of the equity of Correlate Inc. and Loyal Enterprises LLC dba Solar Site Design on December 28, 2021. The company notes these acquisitions occurred at a key inflection point of its growth. CIPI currently enjoys channel and sales partnerships with Fortune 250 companies and a strong, proven industry network.

The company’s transparent, leading-edge model changes value delivery for both facility owners and proven solution providers seeking scale. CIPI believes its rapid growth is due to industry demand for actionable, cashflow positive energy programs and the underlying carbon reduction mandates taking effect globally.

CIPI has filed with the SEC for a name change to Correlate Infrastructure Partners Inc., which will more closely reflect its new platform and growth focus. The company has been aggressively moving to rebrand, with efforts including a revised website, investor presentation materials and an investor relations awareness campaign. The company’s shares will continue to trade on the OTCQB Venture Market under the current ‘CIPI’ ticker symbol until changes are approved.

Market Outlook

CIPI is in a rapidly growing market with a unique offering to address a total market of more than 5.9 million commercial buildings in the United States, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration. Currently, the company’s wholly owned subsidiaries, Correlate and the Solar Site Design, have an opportunity pipeline of over $100 million in commercial projects with more than $20 million in awarded backlog. According to the Rocky Mountain Institute, portfolio energy optimization is a $290 billion market in the United States driving deep financial savings and energy efficiency across the commercial sector.

Commercial buildings consume more than 35% of the generated electricity in the U.S. and are underperforming in energy efficiency at every level. These buildings waste energy, emit too much carbon, and are too costly for owners and occupants, but retrofits are not happening at the rate or scale needed.

In today’s real estate market, portfolio property owners own most commercial buildings. Yet most building efficiency work is focused on single buildings, thereby missing the distinct needs of this owner class which has very different needs than traditional owner-occupiers. The diverse nature of commercial buildings, combined with technology and performance uncertainty, make simple energy optimization initiatives – which could greatly reduce energy use and improve building value – financially unattractive, resulting in slow adoption rates. CIPI’s financial instruments and software breakdown this issue known as the “split incentive”, unlocking the majority of the addressable market.

Advanced Container Technologies Inc. (OTC: ACTX)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight Advanced Container Technologies Inc. (OTC: ACTX).

With more than 30 U.S. states now allowing some form of cannabisuse within their borders, hundreds of businesses have sprung up tosupply the almost unending demand for cannabis products. As themarket attracts more players and becomes increasingly competitive, companies have adopted unique approaches to stand out from theever-growing crowd and increase brand loyalty among theircustomers. One recent tactic that businesses within the cannabisindustry have adopted has been to include marijuana seeds in their product lineups. While this might seem counterintuitive because it could encourageconsumers to grow their own cannabis rather than purchase fromlicensed retailers, cannabis companies don’t see it that way.Trade Roots cofounder Carl Giannone stated that even though plenty of peoplewho have home gardens grow tomatoes over the summer and spring, awhopping 98% of the tomatoes they consume are bought in grocerystores. Applying this logic to cannabis seeds, Giannone explainedthat if growing tomatoes encouraged people to buy tomatoes then itwould make sense to let your customers grow their own tomatoes.According to Ryan Douglas, a cannabis cultivation consultant basedin Florida, the move could allow businesses to boost their brandrecognition and loyalty through high-quality or rare cannabisvarieties. This approach of selling cannabis seeds also has theadded benefit of potentially boosting the sales of ancillaryenterprises such as Advanced Container Technologies Inc. (OTC: ACTX), which focus on making indoor cultivation equipment.

Advanced Container Technologies Inc. (OTC: ACTX) is in the business of selling and distributing self-contained, automated, indoor “micro-farms” called Grow Pods, along with related equipment and supplies. Additionally, the company designs and sells patented proprietary medical-grade plastic containers, known as the Medtainer®, that store and grind pharmaceuticals, herbs, teas and other solids or liquids.

ACTX is the leading distributor of Grow Pods. With a controlled environment, food and herbs can be grown without pesticides, harmful chemicals or risk of pathogen contamination, and with low energy consumption. Restaurants, grocery stores, non-profits, MSOs and entrepreneurs can use Grow Pods to ensure a fresh supply of ultra-clean produce year-round.

The company entered the Grow Pod business in October 2020 with its acquisition of all shares of Advanced Container Technologies Inc., a California corporation. As of February 28, 2022, ACTX is exploring the acquisition of the assets and the assumption of some or all of the liabilities of GP Solutions Inc., the developer and manufacturer of Grow Pods, for which ACTX is currently the sole U.S. distributor.

Because Grow Pods can be located almost anywhere, produce can be grown closer to the point of consumption and harvested at its peak, providing nutritious fruits and vegetables where needed. Indoor micro-farms, utilizing a practice known as vertical farming, have attracted the attention of governments and universities, which are now promoting vertical farming as a way to combat food insecurity and inequities.

The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) has stated that vertical farming “is no longer a futuristic concept.” The department is enthusiastic about vertical farming, particularly those utilizing repurposed shipping containers, such as Grow Pods. Arizona State University reports that vertical farming reduces water use by 90 percent compared to conventional farming but produces 10 times the crop yield.


Grow Pods

One of the company’s main business units is focused on selling advanced, self-contained hydroponic containers called Grow Pods. These unique and innovative automated systems are essentially micro-farms that can be placed virtually anywhere and, with their controlled and specially filtered environment, allow cultivation of a wide variety of crops, 365 days a year. The Grow Pod controlled environment offers major advantages for the production of high-value crops. The ability to grow year-round and the ability to cultivate in a smaller footprint using less water and power are some of the primary advantages of the system. Grow Pods offer constant temperature, humidity and airflow control, as well as automated watering and lighting schedules for optimal growth and minimal labor requirements, regardless of crop.


ACTX meets the needs of the pharmaceutical and medical markets, including the cannabis and hemp industries, with patented packaging systems. The company designs, customizes, brands and sells proprietary medical grade plastic containers that can store pharmaceuticals, herbs, teas and other solids or liquids, with a special built-in feature that can grind solids and shred herbs. The company’s flagship container product is the patented Medtainer®, a child resistant, medical-grade herb container and grinder that is water-tight, air-tight and smell proof. Packaging in the cannabis industry is critical, with numerous stringent regulations about how cannabis products must be packaged and labeled. ACTX also offers custom-branded, compliant vacuum seal bags and other retail container solutions.

Equipment and Supplies

ACTX markets and sells two principal products: Grow Pods, which are specially modified insulated shipping containers manufactured by GP Solutions Inc., in which plants, herbs and spices may be grown hydroponically in a controlled environment, and Medtainers®, which may be used to store pharmaceuticals, herbs, teas and other solids or liquids and can grind solids and shred herbs. The company also markets and sells various products related to Grow Pods and the Medtainer®, as well as providing private labeling and branding services for purchasers of Medtainers® and certain related products.

GP Solutions manufactures and sells other products, such as humidity controllers and LED lighting systems for vertical farming. The company’s specially designed lighting panels are programmed to emit the exact wavelength of light that each crop requires. The system has a daybreak-to-nightfall feature that gives plants the proper chromatic signals to grow rapidly and fruitfully. High efficiency LED light strips supply the crops with a red and blue light spectrum required for photosynthesis in the spectrum that plants need most.

Market Overview

The global vertical farming market is expected to reach $33.02 billion by 2030, according to a new report by Grand View Research. The market is forecast to expand at a CAGR of 25.5 percent from 2022 to 2030, according to Grand View. Escalating production of biopharmaceutical products, including cannabis, is anticipated to drive the market. The building-based segment of the market is expected to register a significant CAGR of 27.8 percent over the projected period. In addition, the climate control segment is expected to see high growth.

The global cannabis packaging market is expected to reach $14.34 billion by 2028, according to analysis by Reports and Data. The analysis forecasts 1,700 percent growth in cannabis users by the end of 2026, with packaging likely observing a whopping 26.42 percent growth in the forecast period. There are significant barriers to entry in the cannabis packaging market, giving an advantage to companies already established in the sector. These barriers include developing a thorough knowledge of the myriad regulations that govern cannabis packaging (which differ in each state), and child-resistance requirements.

Management Team

Douglas P. Heldoorn is the Founder and Chairman of Advanced Container Technologies Inc. He also holds the positions of President, CEO and COO at the company. Mr. Heldoorn has served on the Board of Directors since its inception in 2013. He has also previously held the position of Executive General Manager at Nissan Motor Corp.

Jeffory A. Carlson is CFO and Treasurer of ACTX. Mr. Carlson has also served as the company’s Corporate Controller since 2014.

Advanced Container Technologies Inc. (OTC: ACTX), closed Tuesday's trading session at $0.4, even for the day, on 3 volume. The average volume for the last 3 months is 3 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.2005/$1.25.

Freight Technologies Inc. (NASDAQ: FRGT) (“Fr8Tech”) is a technology company developing solutions to optimize and automate the supply chain process, providing a platform for B2B cross-border shipping in the NAFTA region. The company’s mission is to revolutionize cross-border shipping by providing carriers with increased growth opportunities and shippers with flexibility, visibility and simplicity for the once-complex process of international over-the-road shipping.

Freight Technologies, formerly known as Hudson Capital Inc., assumed its current name and ticker symbol on May 27, 2022. Its primary operating subsidiary and its marketplace are known as Fr8App, and it conducts operations throughout North America under the names of Fr8App and/or Freight App. The company is headquartered in Houston, Texas, with multiple locations across the U.S. and Mexico.

The Fr8Tech Solutions Suite

Fr8Tech leverages artificial intelligence to provide cloud-based platforms aimed at automating the over-the-road transportation process, effectively reducing human touch points and expediting load booking times. The company’s suite of solutions includes:

Led by corporate educator Mario Mena, Fr8University is designed as an investment in the company’s human capital, providing an opportunity to communicate Fr8Tech’s corporate culture while accelerating operational growth.

Market Outlook

Fr8Tech’s established foothold in Mexico is key to its current efforts to promote sustainable growth in the cross-border shipping industry. Ongoing disruption in U.S.-Chinese trade relations have strengthened Mexico’s status as the largest trading partner of the U.S., with cross-border annual freight spending estimated at $385 billion according to data from the U.S. Department of Transportation. Annual domestic shipping in Mexico is estimated at $34 billion, while annual domestic shipping in the U.S. is estimated to total $732 billion.

Despite the size of this industry, fragmentation and inefficiencies prevail in the space. Thousands of legacy brokers, tens of thousands of shippers and hundreds of thousands of carriers still rely on outdated systems to arrange transport, spending hours on the phone negotiating pricing, waiting days to find trucks and drivers, preparing and printing forms, and operating without tracking or visibility. Add in cross-border complexity relating to customs and additional paperwork, and you have an industry ripe for technological disruption.

Fr8Tech’s recent revenue growth trends have highlighted the company’s efforts to capitalize on this opportunity. In 2021, Fr8Tech achieved revenues of $21.5 million, marking a year-over-year increase of 134%. The company issued revenue guidance for fiscal 2022 of $40 million in a February 9, 2022, press release, which would account for a further 86% year-over-year increase.
