The first cyber brothel in the world is set to launch its services later this month in Berlin. This comes after a successful test phase that allow customers to verbally and physically interact with the artificial intelligence dolls for one hour.

Cybrothel owner and founder, Philipp Fussenegger, stated that many individuals would be more comfortable discussing private matters with a machine because it wouldn’t judge them. He revealed that prior to this, a lot of interest centered on a doll with a voice actress where consumers could interact with the doll and hear the voice.

Now, he noted, the demand was even higher for interactions with AI.

This is one of the many ways that generative artificial intelligence is being used by the adult-entertainment industry. A recently conducted analysis determined that companion apps based on AI had surpassed 220 million downloads on Google Play Store.

The analysis was conducted by SplitMetrics, with general manager Thomas Kriebernegg noting that he expected more application developers to pay attention to this trend and find ways to further monetize and innovate the category.

Misha Rykov, a privacy researcher with the Privacy Not Included guide under Mozilla, stated that artificial intelligence companions can be profitable. Rykov explains that this is a high-margin business that allows proprietors to impose fees without having to develop the core tech. These applications also gather personal data and share it with third parties, which is a reliable business model.

Despite these positives, however, the merger of the adult-entertainment industry and artificial intelligence has raised concerns. One issue lies in the bias in generative artificial intelligence, which bases new content on data it was trained on.

A senior research fellow at the University of Cambridge’s Leverhulme Center for the Future of Intelligence, Dr. Kerry McInerney, stated that there is a risk that regressive gender stereotypes about pleasure and sex can be encoded in the applications. McInerney noted that it was important that the data sets used to train these chatbots were well understood to prevent the replication of ideas about sex that ignored sex which occurred outside of heterosexual relations and demeaned female pleasure.

Rykov also highlighted the risk of addiction to chatbots, noting that their primary target was lonely individuals, particularly men. He revealed that analyses conducted had found that most of these chatbots had high addictive potential and possible harms, particularly to those with mental-health issues.

Mozilla has already included content warning to several chatbots, having observed themes of violence, underage relationships and abuse.

Other parties also highlight the effect these artificial-intelligence chatbots could have on relationships in the real world, with one senior practice consultant noting that issues may arise if actual encounters don’t correspond to AI experiences. The consultant, Tamara Hoyton, adds that porn based on AI may put users in dangerous situations.

Apart from the adult-entertainment industry, AI from entities such as Inc. (NYSE: AI) is making inroads into various verticals within the business landscape. Such technologies are helping businesses improve their engagement with customers while also powering revenue growth. Inc. (AI), closed Wednesday's trading session at $31.62, up 0.990099%, on 7,660,574 volume. The average volume for the last 3 months is 7.207M and the stock's 52-week low/high is $20.23/$48.87.

(SNDL), and today we highlight the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.

Voters in Dallas may have the opportunity to decide whether the state should decriminalize marijuana in small quantities in November. This is if members of the city council approve a plan to place a resolution on this year’s ballot.

Chad West, a council member, recently revealed that he would be proposing the Dallas Freedom Act later this month. Organizers revealed that a petition in favor of the change has received more than 50,000 signatures.

West stated that voters in the city and the country at large wanted to decriminalize cannabis, explaining that law enforcement was already burdened and needed to focus on serious crimes instead of arresting individuals with small amounts of cannabis. Putting the resolution before voters via a city-council-proposed amendment instead of a petition would save the city resources as well as time.

In a news release, Ground Game Texas’ executive director, Catina Voellinger, stated that the amendment would remedy historic discrimination, reform cannabis enforcement, end cannabis criminalization and save millions in public funds.

Ground Game Texas collected the signatures for the petition.

The resolution would direct the police force to stop making arrests or writing tickets for possession of under four ounces of cannabis. Currently, possessing two to four ounces is classified as a class A misdemeanor that can result in a one-year jail term. On the other hand, possessing less than two ounces is classified as a class B misdemeanor and attracts a 180-day sentence.

Similar proposals have been approved in other Texas cities, including Killeen, Austin, Denton, San Marcos, Elgin and Harker Heights. If voters approve, Dallas would become the biggest city in Texas to dodge state laws that ban the recreational use of cannabis.

Texas is one of 26 states around the nation that haven’t fully legalized cannabis. Adam Bazaldua, a Dallas Council member, revealed that he had advocated for such an initiative to be implemented for the last four years, noting that jails were filled with predominantly Black and Brown individuals serving sentences for a drug that was making others millions in more than 30 states countrywide. Bazaldua asserted that the time had come to take action against this injustice.

Recent polls show that most Texans are in favor of cannabis decriminalization. Despite this, there isn’t much hope for a law that favors decriminalization or complete legalization while conservatives are still leading the state.

The growing trend of local authorities becoming impatient with state and federal legislators and opting to pass local measures reforming marijuana regulations is something that industry actors such as SNDL Inc. (NASDAQ: SNDL) could be watching closely because it could eventually trigger larger reforms at a national level.

SNDL Inc. (SNDL), closed Wednesday's trading session at $2.05, up 0.4901961%, on 2,018,731 volume. The average volume for the last 3 months is 2.742M and the stock's 52-week low/high is $1.25/$2.93.

Major economies around the globe are focused on putting an end to coal projects receiving funding from the private sector. Coal power capacity worldwide currently stands at more than 2000 GW, with China developing an additional 500 GW. The economies want to finalize this move before the 2024 U.N. climate summit.

If approved, this proposal by the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) would help limit funding for coal significantly. Coal is one of the largest contributors  to climate change because it produces high amounts of carbon dioxide emissions when burned for energy, particularly in comparison to gas or oil.

The objective of the draft proposal is to set a standard policy for how coal is approached by financial institutions, halting new funding for existing or planned projects and keeping coal infrastructure from being built. Under the proposal, financial institutions would finance the retirement of coal plants and direct financing to clean energy in an effort to replace lost capacity.

Urgewald revealed in a recent report that between January 2021 and December 2023, lending and underwriting by commercial banks to the coal industry added up to $470 billion. At the moment, only about one-quarter of financial institutions globally have implemented policies to limit coal funding.

Members of OECD are currently putting together feedback on the plan, which is to be released for public consultation prior to being adopted formally before COP29. The climate summit is scheduled be held this November in Azerbaijan.

The launched policy, despite being nonbinding, will focus on establishing a global standard to be used by companies’ shareholders and boards. Other guidelines established by OECD, such as child labor, etc., have been adopted by different multinationals. This has helped set a standard for nations where no formal laws on child labor have been enacted.

The European Union, Canada, Britain, the United States and France are some of the parties supporting this proposal as part of an initiative devised during the CP28 summit in 2023. The initiative, called the Coal Transition Accelerator, also centered on decreasing the cost of capital for investments into clean energy.

It was supported by emerging economies relying on coal, such as Vietnam and Indonesia. Both countries are party to billion-dollar agreements to decrease their reliance on coal.

Not all countries support this draft proposal, however. Japan, which is currently the number three largest importer of coal globally, has loudly rejected the proposal. The country generates about one-quarter of its energy from this fuel.

Coal energy companies such as Peabody Energy Corporation (NYSE: BTU) could eventually find themselves running out of funding options for any new projects they wish to develop, and that could make the coal business unviable when compared to other industries where funding is readily available.

Peabody Energy Corporation (BTU), closed Wednesday's trading session at $23, up 0.6124234%, on 1,723,098 volume. The average volume for the last 3 months is 401,224 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $19.34/$27.242.

Stronghold Digital Inc. (SDIG)

QualityStocks, RedChip, MarketBeat, Investor News, InvestorPlace, Real Pennies, SmallCapVoice, StockEarnings, Zacks, CryptoCurrencyWire, OTC Markets Group, StockPicksNYC, StocksEarning, The Online Investor, InsiderTrades, Early Bird and Prism MarketView reported earlier on Stronghold Digital Inc. (SDIG), and today we highlight the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.

On June 7, 2024, the cryptocurrency market, including Ether, Bitcoin and various altcoins, saw a decline following better-than-expected employment data released in the United States. Despite this drop, traders are optimistic that this is merely a temporary setback before the market resumes its upward trend.

Renowned cryptocurrency trader il Capo of Crypto expressed its opinions to its more than 848,000 followers on X, characterizing the state of affairs as a robust sell-off consolidating support levels, with altcoins bearing the brunt of the losses. The trader suggested that this event appears to be a “shakeout,” a term used when many investors sell their assets simultaneously due to uncertainty in the market or the economy.

The Employment Situation Summary Report of the U.S., which was released that same day, revealed an unexpected rise in the number of jobs. This went against the forecasts of cryptocurrency analysts, who thought that a weaker jobs report would put pressure on attempts to reduce inflation and maybe push Bitcoin to all-time peaks.

10x Research research chief Markus Thielen had earlier stated that a weak job report could lead to interest rate cuts. He further noted that if the upcoming CPI inflation report showed a year-over-year rate of 3.3% or lower, it could push Bitcoin to a record high.

Despite the actual employment data showing a different trend, Thielen did not directly attribute the crypto market’s decline to the report. He noted that the cryptocurrency market had dropped off at the end of the day in the absence of a clear driver, calling the data “mixed.”

May saw a 272,000 gain in total jobs in the United States, while the unemployment rate increased by 0.1%, the United States Bureau of Labor Statistics says.

Il Capo of Crypto added that if major support points hold, an upward continuation in the market should follow soon. More recently, BTC experienced a 1.99% drop to reach $69,410. Ether saw a decline of 3.22% while altcoins suffered even larger losses. Pepe plummeted -10.54%, Solana fell -4.89%, while Dogecoin dropped -7.88%, as CoinMarketCap reported.

Other traders also weighed in on the situation, suggesting that the market’s peak is still far off and viewing the current decline as a buying opportunity. For instance, a pseudonymous trader known as Kaleo commented on X that the real bull market has not yet begun. Another trader, Jelle, noted that the small dip was unexpected but still saw it as an opportunity, stating that they bought some dips for a fast turnaround trade.

You can be sure that entities such as Stronghold Digital Inc. (NASDAQ: SDIG) will be watching any market movements in the coming weeks and months since any major movements in either direction could have significant ramifications for the trajectory of the industry.

(RIVN), and today we highlight the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.

Recently, Rivian Automotive Inc. (NASDAQ: RIVN) announced major changes to the RI models to take proactive measures to make customers happy by improving the vehicles’ performance. As other budding EV companies are expanding their catalog with new models, California-based Rivian is focused on upgrading its current models. The company has announced numerous changes to the batteries and electrical components, which the company describes as the brains of the two vehicles.

The innovative electric vehicle (EV) manufacturer known for its R1T truck and R1S SUV sought the help of Nvidia chips to improve the computing power of its R1 pickup and SUV models, the R1T and R1S, redesigned versions.

One notable upgrade is the battery pack. This new 135bkWh battery pack provides 400 miles of range on a single charge, which is 20 miles more in range than the previous pack. The charging times for these vehicles have also improved. Within 20 minutes, the vehicle is capable of adding a charge of 140 miles of range. For long-distance travelers or those who rely on their vehicles for daily commutes, the upgraded R1T is a viable option.

Complementing the new battery pack is the quad motor powertrain. Each wheel is fitted with its own motor, providing an exceptional degree of control and traction. This means drivers can enjoy off-road capabilities, on-road performance and smoother handling.

Rivian has also made significant changes to the suspension and handling of the pickup truck and SUV. Thanks to the more advanced adaptive damping system, these new models have a smoother ride and improved stability, even at high speeds. Drivers will notice this feature while driving on rough terrain where they can easily handle challenging conditions.

Rivian has also updated the interior of both the R1T and the R1S to improve comfort and functionality. The seats now feature more sustainable, high-quality vegan leather. Overall, the vehicle’s design has been refined for both ease and comfort.

Rivian’s modification also extends to its technology and safety upgrades, which include improved infotainment system and safety features. The upgraded infotainment features a larger touchscreen display, high-resolution Blindspot monitoring and highway assist, improved connectivity options, among others.

However, these new and updated features come at a price. The R1T and R1S will now cost $69,900 and $75,900 respectively. The price for R1S has increased by $1,000.

While the exterior of these vehicles remains unchanged, the innovative electric vehicle manufacturer has done a lot to improve the vehicles’ performance and drivers’ experience on the road and cater to customers’ evolving needs. These upgrades have made the electric vehicle maker more competitive.

Rivian Automotive Inc. (RIVN), closed Wednesday's trading session at $11.8, off by 0.2535926%, on 35,059,949 volume. The average volume for the last 3 months is 948,304 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $8.26/$28.06.

p>It has become clear in recent years that obtaining a cannabis license is both expensive and complicated. As a result, many people have found it easier to sell intoxicating products, such as hemp THC beverages. However, this trend may be shifting, especially in California.

Hemp THC beverages are drinks that contain hemp-derived delta-9 THC. You might be wondering how this is possible given the federal law that restricts THC content to 0.3%. Interestingly, these beverages can still be intoxicating without exceeding this limit. For instance, a drink containing 5 to 10 milligrams of hemp-derived THC can be intoxicating while still maintaining a THC concentration below 0.3%, depending on its weight.

California Governor Gavin Newsom issued an order in April for the Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC) and the Public Health Department (CDPH) to ensure hemp products sold in the state adhere to the law. The initiative, titled California Takes Action to Protect Youth from Illegal Hemp Products, emphasizes the need to prevent mislabeled and misleading products from reaching the market, particularly to safeguard children’s health.

The directive highlighted concerns about highly intoxicating hemp beverages appearing in retail stores, which could easily end up in the hands of minors. Hemp products, distinct from those in the legal market, must adhere to stringent consumer safety regulations, including precise labeling requirements. Failure to comply with these regulations is illegal and can lead to license revocation.

Following the directive, both ABC and CDPH issued general warnings to entities about potentially illegal hemp products.

Last week, CDPH specifically warned consumers against drinking hemp-infused sodas under the Mary Jones branding, alleging that the drinks contained isolate of delta-9 THC. As per the CDPH, state law prohibits the inclusion of THC isolate as a component in hemp products.

This warning, which indicates that CDPH views goods containing THC isolates could be dangerous, might have a big impact on the California hemp THC beverage market. The future actions of CDPH remain uncertain, especially regarding companies that produce hemp THC drinks without using THC isolates. State law grants CDPH and other regulators substantial authority to target companies selling “misbranded” or “adulterated” products. These terms can be interpreted broadly, potentially encompassing any product with intoxicating cannabinoids.

Under California law, “THC” broadly consists of:

  • tetrahydrocannabinolic acid
  • tetrahydrocannabinol of any kind regardless of how they are derives (the CDPH may exclude certain isomers from this definition)
  • any other cannabis compound, except CBD, that CDPH determines to be intoxicating.

This definition indicates that CDPH may examine any psychoactive cannabinoid, not just isolate of delta-9 THC. Additionally, there are federal considerations to keep in mind. Recent proposed amendments to Farm Bill 2024 aim to limit intoxicating cannabis compounds. While the amendments do not specify a restrictive milligram cap for hemp THC beverages, they do exclude products with “quantifiable levels” of THC or other intoxicating cannabis compounds from the definition of hemp. The exact meaning of “quantifiable levels” will be determined by federal regulators, which could result in regulations that effectively ban intoxicating hemp THC drinks.

The actions taken by California regulators to crackdown on hemp intoxicants could help to clarify the boundaries between the THC products from licensed companies in various jurisdictions, such as Cresco Labs Inc. (CSE: CL) (OTCQX: CRLBF), and products synthesized from hemp.

(PINS), and today we highlight the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.

Pinterest (NYSE: PINS) has been making waves in the investment community, as noted by its recent trends on The company, known for its visual discovery engine and social media platform, has experienced a slight increase in its stock value by 2.2% over the past month. This performance, while modest, is slightly below the gains seen in the broader S&P 500 composite and the specific internet software industry sector. Such movements in Pinterest’s stock price warrant a deeper dive into the factors that could shape its future in the competitive landscape of social media and online advertising.

Analysts are showing a bullish outlook on Pinterest’s financial health, particularly focusing on its earnings potential. The projected earnings per share (“EPS”) for the current quarter stand at $0.28, marking a significant 33.3% increase from the previous year. This optimism is further supported by a 25% upward revision of the Zacks Consensus Estimate for Pinterest’s earnings over the last 30 days. For the fiscal year, earnings are anticipated to hit $1.43 per share, a 31.2% jump from the prior year, with forecasts for the next fiscal year predicting a 21.8% increase to $1.74 per share. These adjustments reflect a growing confidence in Pinterest’s ability to expand its profitability amidst the competitive tech landscape.

Revenue growth is another critical component of Pinterest’s promising outlook. The company is expected to see a 19.7% year-over-year increase in sales for the current quarter, with estimates pointing to $847.13 million. Looking further ahead, revenue is projected to grow by 20.1% and 17.2% for the current and next fiscal years, respectively, reaching figures of $3.67 billion and $4.3 billion. Such growth rates are indicative of Pinterest’s solidifying position in the market, driven by its unique value proposition to both users and advertisers.

Pinterest’s recent financial performance underscores its growth trajectory. The company reported a 22.8% increase in revenues, reaching $739.98 million in the last quarter, alongside an EPS of $0.20, up from $0.08 the previous year. These figures not only highlight Pinterest’s ability to generate higher income but also its efficiency in translating revenues into profits, surpassing the Zacks Consensus Estimate by a notable margin.

However, despite these positive financial indicators, Pinterest’s valuation metrics suggest a note of caution for potential investors. The company’s F grade in valuation reflects a premium trading position relative to its peers, based on metrics such as price-to-earnings (P/E), price-to-sales (P/S), and price-to-cash flow (P/CF) ratios. This assessment points to the importance of weighing Pinterest’s growth prospects against its current market valuation. With a market capitalization of approximately $29.91 billion and a recent stock price of $43.79, fluctuating within a yearly range of $23.59 to $44.64, investors are advised to consider these factors carefully before making investment decisions.

Reflex Advanced Materials Corp. (CSE: RFLX) (OTCQB: RFLXF)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight Reflex Advanced Materials Corp. (CSE: RFLX) (OTCQB: RFLXF).

Last month, the European Securities and Markets Authority stated that environmental, social and governance ("ESG") investment funds would need to have no less than 80% of assets under management engaged in activities associated with ESG objectives. The new rules also prevent the funds from investing in assets such as large producers of oil and gas. A recent analysis determined that these new rules could greatly impact the United States, particularly on stock market value. The analysis conducted by Morningstar estimates that more than 40% of possible stock divestments that shall be caused by the new rule will affect the United States. France and China may also see stock divestment increase but not to the level of the U.S. The latest rules highlight the European Union's efforts to address holes in its Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation. For the time being, asset managers will need to incorporate the new guidelines to avoid any unwanted attention from the regulators. For enterprises such as Reflex Advanced Materials Corp. (CSE: RFLX) (OTCQB: RFLXF) that have embraced ESG, a time may come when they are ahead of competitors that were laggards when forward-looking entities took up ESG of their own volition.

Reflex Advanced Materials Corp. (CSE: RFLX) (OTCQB: RFLXF) is a strategic minerals company focused on locating and developing economic properties in the strategic metals and advanced materials space. The company aims to improve domestic specialty mineral infrastructure efficiencies to meet surging national demand from North American manufacturers, effectively positioning itself as one of the only North American suppliers of high purity natural graphite for hi-tech applications.

Reflex Advanced Materials is based in Vancouver, British Columbia. Its project portfolio includes the Ruby Graphite Deposit in Montana and the ZigZag Lithium Property in Ontario.


Ruby Graphite Project

Located in a mining-friendly jurisdiction in southwest Montana, the Ruby Graphite Deposit is a low cost, rapid re-entry opportunity that produced roughly 2,400 tons of graphite from 1902 to 1948. Reflex Advanced Materials holds mining rights for 755 hectares at the Ruby Graphite Project, with 96 federal lode mining claims. Recent samples assay at 95.8% to 98.4% total carbon.

The site is notable as the only combined U.S. graphite flake and vein graphite source. Vein graphite is ideal for energy storage applications, because it requires fewer steps to achieve purity than synthetic alternatives and is therefore far less environmentally damaging. This is expected to play a key role in the project’s development as demand for electric vehicles continues to surge.

In March 2023, the company announced its submittal of permit applications to the Bureau of Land Management in respect of its exploration of the Ruby Graphite Project. Its initial drill program, expected to take place in the summer of 2023, includes plans for 3,500 total meters of drilling, cored to an average depth of 130 meters. The targets for this drill program have been identified using historical data from original mine operations and data gathered for the initial 43-101 technical report on the project, dated January 31, 2023.

ZigZag Lithium Property

Located in the Thunder Bay Mining Division of Ontario, the ZigZag Lithium Property consists of eight mining claims spanning roughly 2,710 hectares. Mineralization at the property, most notably lithium, is based in pegmatite dikes and concentrated in spodumene crystals, which are consistent throughout the entire unit.

Spodumene is readily observable in outcrops and in drill cores, with crystal sizes ranging from 3-15cm, on average.

Reflex Advanced Materials and American Energy Technologies Company Metallurgical Partnership

Reflex Advanced Materials has entered into a material processing agreement with American Energy Technologies Co., which is based in Arlington Heights, Illinois, to conduct metallurgical testwork with the goal of creating a technical support data package for Reflex’s target customer base, U.S. Federal agencies and qualification programs with hi-tech customers in the battery and battery storage business.

The resulting coated, spherionized, purified graphite (CSPG) material that is expected to be created from the aforementioned tests will be used to provide potential customers of CSPG with samples so that they can begin the material qualification process.

Market Opportunity

Graphite is an ideal battery anode and has dominated the market since the proliferation of lithium-ion batteries. Despite this demand, there is currently no significant production of lithium-ion battery anode material in North America.

Instead, most graphite sold in North America today is sourced from Chinese producers. U.S. President Joe Biden highlighted this sourcing disparity in a 2022 address:

“The United Stated depends on unreliable foreign sources for many of the strategic and critical materials necessary for the clean energy transition – such as lithium, nickel, cobalt, graphite and manganese for large-capacity batteries,” he said. “Demand for such materials is projected to increase exponentially as the world transitions to a clean energy economy.”

The U.S. Department of Energy is in the process of awarding $2.8 billion to expand domestic manufacturing of batteries for electric vehicles and combat this foreign dependency. Reflex Advanced Materials has identified its Ruby Graphite Project as a prime candidate for U.S.-sponsored initiatives due to the rarity and scarcity of natural graphite deposits in the country.

Processing graphite domestically in the U.S. is expected to provide Reflex Advanced Materials a competitive advantage as manufacturers begin to seek out American supply in the face of increased diplomatic tension. This is critical, as a rise in anode demand is expected to fuel a shortage of 8 million tonnes of graphite by 2040. World Bank Group projects 494% growth in total graphite demand by 2050.

Leadership Team

Paul Gorman is the CEO and a Director of Reflex Advanced Materials. He brings to the company over 25 years of experience in junior mining finance, public listings, viability assessment and operational rationalization. For 18 years, Mr. Gorman served as president and managing partner of Riverbank Capital, where he played an instrumental role in raising more than $85 million for small-cap companies. In 2008, he funded Industrial Minerals Inc. (later Northern Graphite) and served in an advisory role for four other graphite companies, contributing significantly to the revitalization of the junior graphite space in North America. Mr. Gorman founded Mega Graphite Inc. in 2009 and has served as chief executive for three other companies.

Tasheel Jeerh, CPA, is the company’s CFO. He is a finance and accounting professional with over a decade of experience spanning both public and private sectors. Prior to joining Reflex Advanced Materials, Mr. Jeerh played a pivotal role in the growth of a private upstream oil and gas firm, dealing with over $2 billion in M&A activity and $1 billion in financing activities. He gained his designation at PricewaterhouseCoopers, where he worked as a manager in the assurance practice.

The International Energy Agency (IEA) has revealed that solar energy is attracting more funding than every other source of electricity combined. With photovoltaic solar infrastructure growing incredibly cheap over the last several decades, major territories such as the United States, China and Europe have embarked on a record run of solar installations. The result is historic levels of investment in the renewable source of energy, reports the IEA. In 2024 alone, global investments in renewables will hit a whopping $2 trillion, two times the funds set to be invested in fossil fuels. IEA executive director Faith Birol noted that almost $2 go to clean energy for $1 that is invested in fossil fuels, including coal and natural gas. This is a clear win for renewables because drawing investment away from fossil fuels will be critical to cutting fossil-fuel production. The power sector's investment in solar-photovoltaic technology alone is predicted to surpass $500 billion this year, more than every other source of energy combined. Investment in nuclear energy, on the other hand, accounted for 9% of the clean-energy spend and is predicted to increase this year following two years of falling investment to reach $80 million, almost two times more than the decade low of 2018. With enterprises such as FuelPositive Corp. (TSX.V: NHHH) (OTCQB: NHHHF) accelerating their development and manufacturing of clean-energy technologies, it is easy to see how the $3 trillion predicted by the IEA might quickly add up.

FuelPositive Corp. (TSX.V: NHHH) (OTC: NHHHF) is a growth stage company focused on licensing, partnership and acquisition opportunities building upon various technological achievements. The company is committed to providing commercially viable and sustainable clean energy solutions, including carbon-free ammonia (NH3), for use across a broad spectrum of industries and applications.

FuelPositive is headquartered in Toronto, Canada.

Hydrogen Economy Problems and FuelPositive’s Carbon-Free Technology

The hydrogen economy is currently facing many challenges. Traditional NH3 manufacturing exists on a massive scale, but centralized facilities result in some of the world’s most concentrated CO2 emissions. In total, an estimated 200 million metric tonnes of NH3 are consumed each year, with greater than 80% utilized by the agricultural sector. NH3 is also being positioned as a viable alternative to fossil fuels.

FuelPositive’s flagship carbon-free ammonia technology provides an innovative solution to these environmental concerns. Developed by Dr. Ibrahim Dincer and his team, the company’s platform allows for the in-situ production of NH3 in an entirely sustainable manner, using only water, air and sustainable electricity.

The production of hydrogen is energy intensive, but it is just one variable hindering the growth of the hydrogen economy. Other hurdles include:

  • Storage – The storage of hydrogen by compression or liquification are both cost prohibitive and unsustainable.
  • Distribution – The distribution network for effective hydrogen deployment has yet to be developed, as the extreme high-pressure distribution requirements to transport hydrogen would result in enormous infrastructure costs.
  • End Use – R&D on the transportation-related end use applications for hydrogen is in its infancy, but almost any vehicle on the road today can be easily converted to run on NH3 at a considerably lower cost per mile traveled when compared to traditional fossil fuels.

A key benefit of FuelPositive’s patent-pending, first-of-its-kind carbon-free NH3 technology is its flexibility. The process allows for small, medium or large-scale production of NH3 on location, minimizing or even eliminating the challenges and volatility associated with storage and transportation to end use. As such, with an appropriately sized FuelPositive system and access to renewable energy, the end use applications for the company’s platform are nearly infinite.

Manufacturing Partnership

On May 19, 2021, FuelPositive announced its selection of National Compressed Air Canada Ltd. (“NCA”) to undertake manufacturing of the company’s Phase 2 hydrogen-ammonia synthesizer commercial prototype systems for carbon-free ammonia production.

In a news release detailing the partnership, FuelPositive CEO Ian Clifford noted, “This critical milestone for FuelPositive will confirm the broad application potential for our technology and is the backbone of our Carbon-Free Hydrogen-NH3 offering. Partnering with the knowledgeable and experienced team at NCA on this commercialization project will bring our development-stage program to life.”

Global Ammonia Market Outlook

The global ammonia market was valued at $52.71 billion in 2017 and is forecast to reach $81.42 billion by 2025, growing at a CAGR of 5.59%, according to data from Fior Markets (

The agricultural industry consumes more than 80% of global NH3. Smaller percentages can be attributed to the waste, water treatment, refrigerants, antiseptic, textile, mining and pharmaceutical industries.

One of the most polluting industries on the planet consists of conventional agribusinesses. These polluters are responsible for more greenhouse emissions per year than transportation. This is where FuelPositive’s technology is expected to be extremely beneficial.

PaxMedica Inc. (NASDAQ: PXMD)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight PaxMedica Inc. (NASDAQ: PXMD).

Researchers have always been stumped by why some kids with autism experience symptoms such as an inability to speak, social struggles, and developmental delay, while the milder symptoms of other individuals diagnosed with autism actually improve over time. Now, new research has determined that severe autism may be associated with overgrowth in the brain's outer layer during the gestation period. For their research, investigators obtained blood stem cells from 10 children aged between one year of age and four years of age. Their objective was to develop 3D models of each child's cortexes using lab cell cultures. Once this was done, they compared these models to brain cortical organoids of children without autism. Now that the investigators have determined that brain overgrowth begins in the womb, they are now focused on finding out why it happens. The research's findings were published in the "Molecular Autism" journal. As more such studies uncover the mechanisms through which autism spectrum disorder develops, it will give companies such as PaxMedica Inc. (OTC: PXMD) additional scientific data to work with in their efforts to develop future treatments against this condition, whose incidence is rising at concerning rates.

PaxMedica Inc. (NASDAQ: PXMD) is a clinical stage biopharmaceutical company focusing on the development of novel anti-purinergic therapies (APTs) for the treatment of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and other serious conditions with intractable neurologic symptoms.

The company’s lead programs are focused on ASD, for which there are currently no approved pharmacologic treatments that target its cause and symptoms. Currently used treatments only address the symptoms of the condition, rather than targeting the pathophysiology itself.

PaxMedica is on a promising path to address these unmet medical needs, bringing hope to millions. Anti-purinergic therapies target the excess production of purines in cells. An overexpression of purines can offset homeostasis and result in an overproduction of cellular adenosine triphosphate, the main energy molecule in all living cells.

The company is headquartered in Tarrytown, New York.

Product Pipeline

PaxMedica is building a robust pipeline of products targeting ASD and related neurodevelopmental conditions. The company’s lead product in development may help eliminate, reduce or modulate some of the more troublesome aspects of ASD. That would open the potential for people with autism to integrate their behavior with others more successfully and improve their lives.

PaxMedica’s lead programs, PAX-101 and PAX-102, utilize the company’s proprietary source of suramin sodium, a broadly acting anti-purinergic therapy that has been known for over 100 years. Its current pipeline includes:

  • PAX-101 (IV Suramin) for ASD – PAX-101 completed a Phase 2B study for ASD in 2021. Suramin is a broadly acting APT and has reported positive results from a dose range study. The results of PaxMedica’s Phase 2B study, which targeted 52 subjects across six sites in South Africa, were presented to AACAP in October 2021.
  • PAX-102 (Intranasal Suramin) – PaxMedica has developed a proprietary intranasal formulation of suramin that is currently being evaluated in ASD and other neurodevelopmental conditions.
  • PAX-101 for HAT – Given suramin’s historical use as a treatment for Human African Trypanosomiasis (HAT), or African Sleeping Sickness, the company is also developing PAX-101 as a treatment for HAT. PaxMedica’s most advanced program is the pursuit of PAX-101 for early-stage East African HAT.
  • Selective APTs – PaxMedica has conducted several preclinical studies to evaluate other APTs that are more selective to specific purinergic receptors and may offer additional benefits over suramin.

Market Opportunity

According to a report by Fortune Business Insights, a leading global market research company, the global ASD therapeutics market was estimated at $1.93 billion in 2022 and is projected to grow from $2.01 billion in 2023 to $3.42 billion by 2030, a CAGR of 7.9% over the forecast period. As there is no current treatment for the core symptoms of autism, PaxMedica believes the addressable market for PAX-101, if approved, could greatly exceed these forecasts.

Autistic disorder, Asperger’s Syndrome and Pervasive Development Disorder are the three main types of ASD, affecting millions of people globally. A 2020 report by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control & Prevention estimated that one in 36 children in the U.S. have been diagnosed with autism disorder.

Several factors are expected to contribute to market growth prospects. A growing prevalence of the condition globally and rising awareness coupled with available treatment options are key factors expected to drive ASD therapeutics market growth during the forecast period. Growing investment in R&D to find effective treatments is also expected to fuel global market growth.

Fathom Nickel Inc. (CSE: FNI) (FSE: 6Q5) (OTCQB: FNICF)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlightFathom Nickel Inc. (CSE: FNI) (FSE: 6Q5) (OTCQB: FNICF).

Fathom Nickel Inc. (CSE: FNI) (FSE: 6Q5) (OTCQB: FNICF) is a Canadian natural resource development and exploration company that targets high-grade nickel sulfide discoveries for use in the rapidly growing global electric vehicle (EV) market. The company has a portfolio of two high-quality exploration projects located in the prolific Trans Hudson Corridor in Saskatchewan.

Led by a management team with more than 100 years of combined mining and exploration experience, Fathom believes in a continuing bright outlook for nickel and its increasing use in the manufacturing of batteries needed for energy storage in the high-growth renewable energy and EV industries. The company’s modern approach to exploration has yielded significant new nickel discoveries.

Fathom is headquartered in Calgary, Alberta.


The Albert Lake Project

The Albert Lake Project comprises 90,460 hectares of lands located in north-central Saskatchewan, with over 80,000 hectares currently unexplored. The project is host to the historic Rottenstone Mine, a high-grade, open pit nickel sulfide past producer that was active from 1965 to 1969 and yielded ~26,000 tonnes of 3.3% Ni, 1.8% Cu, and >9 g/t Pd-Pt+Au.

The geological setting of the Albert Lake Project is within the Trans Hudson Orogeny (Corridor), which is host to numerous world-class nickel mining camps including the Thompson Nickel Belt (currently operating with more than 5 billion pounds of nickel produced since 1959), Lynn Lake (past producer) and Raglan Nickel Belt (currently operating with more than 39,000 tons of nickel produced in 2020).

The project is fully permitted. Exploration plans for 2024 include drilling a high-priority target located approximately 2km south of the historic Rottenstone Mine along with drilling other high-priority targets. Additional soil geochemistry, surface geophysical programs and geological mapping and prospecting will be performed during the summer field season.

The Gochager Lake Project

The Gochager Lake Project in northern Saskatchewan, also in the prolific Trans Hudson Corridor, was recently expanded through the addition of the contiguous Watt’s Lake property and direct staking, bringing its total land area to 22,620 hectares.

The Gochager Lake property is host to a historic resource defined by drilling in 1966-1967 consisting of 4.2 M tons grading 0.29% Ni and 0.08% Cu. Recent drilling by Fathom has defined multiple very robust off-hole borehole electromagnetic (BHEM) responses in eight of nine holes drilled in 2023 and three historic drill holes probed. There is very strong evidence of multiple, high-grade nickel-copper-cobalt steeply oriented chutes within the historic Gochager Lake Deposit.

Prior to Fathom exploration in 2023 and since 1970, exploration at the property has been limited to small drill programs in 1989-1990 and 2018. Exploration plans for 2024 include expanded surface geophysical programs, drilling and continued BHEM surveys to expand tons and increase the grade of the historic Gochager Lake deposit. Summer exploration will consist of soil geochemistry, mapping, prospecting and additional surface geophysical programs focused on identifying other Gochager-like deposits within the current land package.

Market Opportunity

Nickel plays a crucial role in clean energy technologies, and that is expected to cause demand to well outstrip supply for the foreseeable future.

With an annual market value of around $35 billion, nickel demand is projected to rise due to its intensive use in lithium-ion batteries used to power EVs. However, new discoveries of nickel sulfide deposits (currently the most reliable source for battery-grade class 1 nickel) have been rare, which could constrain class 1 nickel supply in the coming years.

According to Deloitte’s global EV forecast, total EV sales will grow from 2.5 million in 2020 to 11.2 million in 2025, reaching 31.1 million by 2030 and representing approximately 32% of the total market share for new car sales. Over the next 10 years, the EV market is projected to see a CAGR of 29%, with increased demand for nickel expected to be comparable.

Management Team

Fathom Nickel has assembled a best-in-class leadership team consisting of highly qualified industry professionals with deep knowledge and understanding of the mineral exploration industry and capital markets.

Ian Fraser, P.Geo., is CEO, VP Exploration and Co-Founder of Fathom Nickel.

Advanced Gold Exploration Inc. (CSE: AUEX) (FSE: 4TG) (OTC: AUHIF)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlightFathom Advanced Gold Exploration Inc. (CSE: AUHIF) (FSE: 4TG) (OTCQB: AUHIF) .

Advanced Gold Exploration Inc. (CSE: AUEX) (OTC: AUHIF) (FSE: 4TG), formerly Advance United Holdings Inc., is a junior mining company bringing an entirely different approach to the mining industry. Advanced Gold Exploration doesn’t intend to become a mining company. Rather, it has acquired a portfolio of undervalued gold properties and is increasing their value through the application of modern technology. The object is to eventually monetize the projects to add value for its shareholders.

Advanced Gold Exploration has a growing pipeline of similar properties that it is looking to acquire. The company is involved exclusively in the acquisition and advancement of past gold projects – with no intent to bring them back into production. It leaves the actual gold mining to others who are experts in that area.

Advanced Gold Exploration’s expertise is in identifying and acquiring undervalued properties with significant historical work which were previously not economically viable, but that the company believes have economic value at today’s gold prices. Advanced Gold Exploration funds the reworking of historic data and applying modern technology to underwrite new qualified reports that document quantifiable resources and reserves to current standards, thereby recognizing the current value of the projects.

The company’s purpose is to bring immediate and long-term value to its partners and shareholders while seeking to eliminate exploration risk. Advanced Gold Exploration believes that the future of gold is strong, and it will be part of that future.

The company is headquartered in Toronto.


The Melba Property is the site of a former producing gold mine located about 15 kilometers north of the gold mining center of Kirkland Lake, Ontario. The project is located in the Abitibi Greenstone Belt, part of the largest gold producing area of Canada. Visible gold can be identified in quartz veins on the surface and high-grade gold intersections have been obtained in drilling by AUEX. No exploration has been carried out on the extensions of the veins to the north or south of the surface exposures in swamp covered areas.

The Doyle Property lies in the Batchawana Greenstone Belt located north of Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario. Past drilling identified high-grade gold deposits in three areas of the property. Follow up studies are needed on all three sites. Exploration has not been carried out to follow-up the high-grade gold intersections. Further work will focus on expanding the areas of known gold mineralization.

The Landrum Property in Edgefield County, South Carolina, is in the Carolina Gold Belt, home of at least five past producing gold mines and one currently producing gold mine. The area was the site of the first gold rush in the U.S. in the early 1800s, predating 1849 California. The area has recently become of interest due to gold bearing intersection on a nearby property where 62.5 meters graded 8.5 G/t gold in a recent drillhole. Gold can still be panned in some streams in the area. Identified veins consist of silicified zones generally made up of 20-50% and vary in thickness from less than a meter to 10 meters.

The Paint Lake Road Property is located in Wawa, Ontario, and is less than five kilometers from Wesdome’s operating Mishi Open Pit gold mine. Gold deposits have been found to the north, east and south of the property. A recent geophysical survey on the neighboring property has pointed to a prospective mineralized horizon which appears to trend onto the property.

Market Opportunity

The World Gold Council, the industry association for the world’s gold producers, estimated in 2023 the physical financial gold market, which is made up of bars, coins, gold ETFs and central bank reserves, is worth nearly $5 trillion. The council reports that gold mine production adds approximately 3,500 tons of the precious metal to the world’s supply annually, equivalent to about 2% growth.

Recently the gold price has reached new highs on multiple days and is tracing a trend upward.

This historical scarcity and relatively slow production of new supply, as compared to other commodities, is a primary reason gold has retained its value for millennia, according to the council.

Management Team

James Atkinson, M.Sc., P. Geo., is CEO of Advanced Gold Exploration. An experienced exploration geologist and project manager with over 50 years of experience, he has spent his career in mineral exploration and mining.

Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (NASDAQ: LEXX)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (NASDAQ: LEXX).

Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (NASDAQ: LEXX) is a global innovator in drug delivery platforms. The company’s patented technology, DehydraTECH™, improves the way active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs) enter the bloodstream by promoting healthier oral ingestion methods and increasing the effectiveness of fat-soluble active molecules. DehydraTECH promotes fast-acting, less expensive and more effective oral drug delivery and has been thoroughly evaluated through in vivo, in vitro and human clinical testing.

DehydraTECH is covered by 21 issued and more than 50 pending patents in over 40 countries around the world. Lexaria’s first patent was issued by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office in October 2016 (US 9,474,725 B1), providing 20 years of patent protection expiring June 2034. Multiple patents have been awarded since then and are expected in the future.

Lexaria has also collaborated with the National Research Council (NRC), the Canadian government’s premier research and technology organization. The company has been granted patent protection for specific delivery of nicotine, vitamins, NSAIDs, antiviral drugs, cannabinoids and more.

Lexaria began developing DehydraTECH in 2014 and has since continued to strengthen and broaden the technology. The company has no plans to create or sell Lexaria-branded products containing controlled substances. Instead, Lexaria licenses its technology to other companies around the world to offer consumers the best possible performance across an array of ingestible product formats.

The company’s technology is best thought of as an additional layer that providers of consumer supplements, prescription and non-prescription drugs, nicotine and CBD products can utilize to improve the effectiveness of their own existing or planned new offerings. Lexaria has licensed DehydraTECH to multiple companies, including a world-leading tobacco producer for the research and development of smokeless, oral-based nicotine products, and for use in industries that produce cannabinoid beverages, edibles and oral products.

DehydraTECH is suitable for use with a wide range of product formats including pharmaceuticals, nutraceuticals, consumer packaged goods and over-the-counter capsules, pills, tablets and oral suspensions.

DehydraTECH Technology

Lexaria’s DehydraTECH is designed specifically for formulating and delivering lipophilic (fat-soluble) drugs and active ingredients. DehydraTECH increases their effectiveness and improves the way active pharmaceutical ingredients enter the bloodstream. The major benefits to a subject ingesting a DehydraTECH-enabled drug or consumer product can be summarized by the following:

  • Speeds up delivery – the effects of the product are felt by the subject in just minutes.
  • Increases bioavailability – the technology is much more effective at delivering a drug or product into the bloodstream.
  • Increases brain absorption – animal testing suggests significant improvement in the quantity of drug delivered across the blood-brain barrier.
  • Improves drug potency – more of the ingested product is made available to the body, so lower doses are required to achieve the desired effect.
  • Reduces drug administration cost – lower doses mean lower overall drug costs.
  • Masks unwanted taste – the technology eliminates or reduces the need for sweeteners.

Lexaria has demonstrated in animal studies a propensity for DehydraTECH technology to elevate the quantity of drug delivered across the blood-brain barrier by as much as 1,900 percent, initiating additional new patent applications and opening possibilities for improved drug delivery.

Since 2016, DehydraTECH has repeatedly demonstrated, with cannabinoids and nicotine, the ability to increase bio-absorption by up to five to 10 times, reduce time of onset from one to two hours to just minutes, and mask unwanted tastes. The technology is to be further evaluated for additional orally administered bioactive molecules, including antivirals, cannabinoids, vitamins, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) and nicotine.

Market Outlook

Lexaria’s ongoing research and development efforts are mainly focused on development of product candidates across several key segments:

  • Oral Cannabinoids – a market estimated to be worth $18.4 billion in 2021 and expected to reach $46.2 billion by 2025.
  • Antivirals – an estimated $52.1 billion market in 2021 that’s expected to grow to $66.7 billion by 2025.
  • Oral Mucosal Nicotine – smokeless tobacco products, a $13.6 billion market in 2018, is forecast to grow at 7.2 percent annually through 2025.
  • Human Hormones – estrogen and testosterone replacement therapies represented a $21.9 billion market in 2019, with a forecast CAGR of 7.7 percent through 2027.
  • Ibuprofen and Naproxen – NSAID sales totaled $15.6 billion globally in 2019 and are projected to reach $24.4 billion by 2027.
  • Vitamin D3 – the global market size was $1.1 billion in 2021, growing at 7 percent per year and expected to reach $1.7 billion in 2026.

Correlate Energy Corp. (OTCQB: CIPI)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight Correlate Energy Corp. (OTCQB: CIPI).

Correlate Energy Corp. (OTCQB: CIPI) is a publicly-traded company strategically positioned to capitalize on America’s unstoppable trend toward decentralized energy generation.

The energy grid in the U.S. is insufficient for the booming clean energy trend, and current infrastructure is limiting green energy distribution. Constructing the needed infrastructure to address this demand imbalance will cost billions and be far too slow, positioning decentralized systems, like those on offer from Correlate, in a key position for heightened demand.

Correlate has identified several key economic drivers powering the decentralized energy trend, including:

  1. Real Cost Savings – Customer pays zero money down and gets an instant electrical price discount to current rates.
  2. Massive Project Investment Funding – The International Energy Agency estimates that over one billion dollars per day will be invested in solar energy in 2023.
  3. Consistent Long-Term Incentives – The Inflation Reduction Act is a game-changer, supercharging renewables with $1.2 trillion in tax credits for 10 years of market support.
  4. Robust Customer Demand – Wood Mackenzie expects the U.S. solar industry to nearly triple in size over the next five years.

Correlate’s team of multi-decade experts who have worked with renowned global brands are positioning the company to make the most of this opportunity while consolidating a fragmented industry. Collectively, the team has developed, financed and deployed over $2 billion in clean energy projects to date.

Three-Pronged Strategy

Correlate is leveraging a three-pronged strategy aimed at driving shareholder value:

  1. Sell – Correlate seeks to finance, develop and profitably sell localized clean energy solutions and microgrids to industrial, commercial and residential customers.
  2. Retain – Correlate plans to retain ownership of some of these energy systems and thereby realize ongoing, reliable cash flow.
  3. Acquire – Correlate seeks to acquire proven renewable energy companies in order to exponentially grow earnings per share for investors.

This strategy is enhanced by current investment trends. Clean energy earnings are being sought after by investors. In Q4 2022, the median EBITDA multiple for green energy companies was 12.3x, according to Finerva.

Market Outlook

Over the next decade and beyond, renewable energy growth is expected to come primarily via decentralized systems like those offered by Correlate.
The Inflation Reduction Act enacted in late August 2022 is likewise expected to drive growth for the company by providing new tax incentives that reduce costs for clients and/or elevate returns to investors.

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 are very different from 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.

A key portion of Correlate’s strategy relates to consolidation of what has been a fragmented industry. By uncovering opportunities to improve efficiencies through strategic M&A activities, the company intends to enhance profitability throughout its operations.

Management Team

Todd Michaels is President and CEO of CIPI and founder of Correlate. He formerly served as Vice President for Innovation at SunEdison and Senior Director Distributed Solar at NRG Energy.

He holds a B.A. in Environmental Chemistry from the University of California at San Diego and an MBA from the University of Southern California. He is also an advisor and early-stage investor to several startup companies in the renewable energy space.
