HIVE Blockchain Technologies Ltd. (HIVE)

InvestorPlace, QualityStocks, MarketClub Analysis, MarketBeat, StreetInsider,, StockMarketWatch, Greenbackers, Hit and Run Candle Sticks, Barchart, Stock Market Watch, WealthMakers, StockOodles, StreetAuthority Daily, The Online Investor, TopStockAnalysts, Wall Street Resources and smartOTC reported earlier on HIVE Blockchain Technologies Ltd. (HIVE), and today we highlight the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.

HIVE Blockchain Technologies (NASDAQ: HIVE) (TSX.V: HIVE) (FSE: HBFA), a leading digital asset miner and green-focused data center builder and operator, today announced the earnings report for the second quarter ended Sept. 30, 2022. Among the highlights, HIVE announced that it achieved revenue of $29.6 million this quarter, through mining 858 green and clean Bitcoin and 7,309 Ethereum, which were subsequently sold to reinvest in new ASIC mining equipment. As such, HIVE’s production of Bitcoin increased by 4.5% quarter over quarter while its average daily production of Ethereum increased from 84.3 ETH per day to 94.9 ETH this quarter, prior to the Sept. 15, 2022, merge date when it ceased mining Ethereum.

“We wish to again thank our loyal shareholders for believing in our vision to mine both Ethereum and Bitcoin. We are sad to see the higher margin from mining Ethereum gone and now will be more easily compared to our Bitcoin mining peers. It was an extremely challenging quarter for the global digital asset ecosystem, where we saw the capitulation of crypto prices due to the Proof of Stake ‘PoS’ Luna token blow up in the spring and subsequent contagion from over leveraged ‘shadow banks,’ hedge funds and offshore exchanges,” said HIVE’s Executive Chairman Frank Holmes. “Strategically, we have not borrowed expensive debt against our mining equipment or pledged our Bitcoins for costly loans, thus our balance sheet remains healthy to weather this storm. We believe our low coupon fixed debt, attractive green renewable energy prices and high performing energy efficient ASIC chips will help us navigate through this crypto winter.”

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

The EV industry has sworn that electric vehicles will rule the road in the future. According to scientists, vehicles fueled by gasoline and diesel must be discontinued if there is any chance of preventing the worst effects of a climate disaster, as transport accounts for about 25% of all carbon pollution produced by humans.

According to a report issued this week by Greenpeace, the transition to electric cars is progressing slowly to avoid dangerous climate change. The report went on to say that the industry’s leading manufacturers, Toyota and Volkswagen (VW), are moving too slowly toward electric vehicles, which would have serious consequences for the climate and would lead to a climate conflict.

Analyzing the electrification report of the major EV producers, which account for 40% of those producing cars, it is noted that two of them, GM and Kia, are set to go fully electric by 2035 and 2045, respectively. The report further revealed that Toyota and VW had yet to give dates for when they were to go electric. VW has set the year 2040 as a likely date for going electric, whereas Toyota has not identified a date, claiming that the EV transition will take longer than many expect.

If these findings by Greenpeace are to be believed, then pollution from all the excessive vehicles would match the pollution released by buildings across the globe. And this will be a huge spread over time, one that will be hard to offset.

The report also noted that climate laws could dictate the market for these vehicles. All across the globe, climate laws want to gradually reduce diesel and gasoline vehicle sales. Consequently, car producers that do not transition to electric vehicles on time risk having their cars not sold once they are produced, which will mean staring at grounded vehicles and a huge loss. The report said that there was a risk of $2 trillion in losses.

For this reason, bankers as well as investors must take the initiative to call out the internal combustion engine bubble and use their power to hasten car producers’ shift to electric vehicles.

This truth has caused several countries and jurisdictions to be more ambitious in their goals for discontinuing gas vehicles. For example, the United Kingdom and California intend to gradually stop the sale of fossil-fuel vehicles by 2030 and 2035, respectively. By the end of 2030, Greenpeace wants legacy automakers to follow this example and stop using gas-powered engines and join EV startups such as NIO Inc. (NYSE: NIO) in churning out only electric vehicles.

NIO Inc. (NIO), closed Tuesday's trading session at $11.51, up 3.0439%, on 63,244,226 volume. The average volume for the last 3 months is 601,506 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $8.375/$43.12.

Warrior Met Coal Inc. (HCC)

The Online Investor, MarketBeat, StreetInsider, Market Report, QualityStocks, Zacks, The Street, Trades Of The Day, Daily Trade Alert, BUYINS.NET, StockMarketWatch, MarketClub Analysis, Schaeffer's, StreetAuthority Daily, AllPennyStocks, Market Intelligence Center Alert, InvestorPlace, Street Insider, CRWEFinance, TopStockAnalysts and SmarTrend Newsletters reported earlier on Warrior Met Coal Inc. (HCC), and today we highlight the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.

The role fossil fuels such as coal and oil played in human industrialization cannot be understated. These fuels allowed us to finally break free of our energy limitations and develop into a modernized society. However, several countries across the Americas, Asia and Europe have begun efforts to scale down fossil-fuel energy in exchange for more sustainable alternatives.

Fossil fuels such as oil and coal may have played a major role in human advancement, but they are also responsible for the existential threat of climate change. Efforts to replace these fuels with alternatives such as solar and wind energy were well underway across Europe before Russia invaded Ukraine and plunged the region into an unprecedented energy crisis.

Russia cut natural-gas supplies to the interior of Europe in response to western sanctions against the Kremlin, leading to an energy crunch that has driven up the cost of nearly everything. One other consequence of the energy crisis is that several European countries, including Poland, have been forced to scale back their green-energy initiatives amid crippling natural-gas shortages and increasing energy prices.

Poland won’t just be putting its plans to shut down already-existing coal plants on hold, it will be expanding coal production and is expected to launch two new coal-production facilities. With winter fast approaching, European nations are scrambling for an affordable energy source that could keep their populations warm over the coming cold months.

Poland, which already generates 70% of its power using coal, planned to close all local coal mines by 2049 and reduce coal-produced power to 11%—27% of the entire grid by 2040. But it seems as if the European country is putting a pause on these plans amid the global energy crisis and a fast-approaching winter.

Climate minister Anna Moskwa said in a recent interview that the demand for coal was growing even before the Russia-Ukraine war and that the unprovoked invasion exacerbated an already deteriorating situation. As such, the minister noted, Poland is looking to increase coal production and is even planning to begin mining in new locations.

Moskwa said that although Poland is committed to a nuclear energy future, with the country’s first nuclear plants expected to begin operation in 2023, the country needs to shore up its energy deficits in the meantime. Until Poland’s nuclear power plants begin operation, Moskwa said that the country will not be shutting down any operational coal power plants.

State assets minister Jacek Sasin said in a recent interview that the country still plans on closing its coal plants by 2049 but will have to revise its schedule for when each power plant is closed. Such measures taken by Poland and other affected countries show why coal extraction companies such as Warrior Met Coal Inc. (NYSE: HCC) still have a market to serve until greener forms of energy are readily available.

Warrior Met Coal Inc. (HCC), closed Tuesday's trading session at $34.84, up 1.2791%, on 614,259 volume. The average volume for the last 3 months is 1.84M and the stock's 52-week low/high is $20.251/$42.95.

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

While physicians have worked on developing treatments for physical ailments for centuries, mental health has been neglected for a long time. In recent decades, however, we have become more and more aware of the significant role mental health plays in determining overall health and quality of life.

There are several pharmaceutical treatments for common mental health ailments, but those treatments aren’t always effective, and they tend to have unwanted side effects. Consequently, researchers have been looking for more effective mental-health treatments that can alleviate symptoms with minimal side effects.

Amid a wave of drug reform, psychedelics have emerged as a viable treatment for a variety of mental-health conditions. Studies and clinical trials have shown that when paired with psychotherapy, psychedelics can deliver significant mental-health benefits for conditions such as PTSD, depression and eating disorders.

During a recent podcast episode of the CNN original docuseries “Chasing Life with Dr. Sanjay Gupta,” CNN commentator and neurosurgeon Dr. Sanjay Gupta talked about psychedelic-assisted psychotherapy. Gupta invited two individuals who had just undergone ketamine-assigned therapy to the show where they attempted to describe their psychedelic experiences.

With millions of dollars being poured into psychedelic research and initial studies revealing that hallucinogenic drugs can have significant mental health benefits, it is impossible to ignore the growing conversation around psychedelics.

Gupta said that people are increasingly turning to drugs such as psilocybin, MDMA, LSD and ketamine to address a variety of conditions, including post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). He noted that most of these psychedelic drugs are still considered controlled substances at the federal level and by most states, making it quite difficult for researchers to study them effectively at medical or academic centers.

However, lawmakers have already begun loosening psychedelic policies as a wave of drug reform sweeps the country. For starters, the Food and Drugs Administration (FDA) approved the use of a psychedelic called ketamine as a therapy for treatment-resistant depression.

Dr. Meera Garcia, another guest on the podcast, noted that ketamine is FDA approved for a wide variety of uses. Garcia operates a ketamine-assisted therapy retreat that treated two of the guests who came onto the show to describe their psychedelic experiences.

Gupta also talked about one of the most interesting aspects of consuming psychedelics: their impact on the senses. He said that hallucinogenic drugs tend to work their magic and cause profound changes in consciousness when they ensnare the senses.

Gupta has been interested in psychedelic-assisted therapies for some time, interviewing a major player in the psychedelic research field in 2014 and stating at the time that psychedelic drugs have fascinated psychiatrists from the day they were discovered.

The public awareness that results from docuseries such as those presented by Gupta and his team provide another angle from which the discoveries so far made by psychedelic industry actors such as Atai Life Sciences N.V. (NASDAQ: ATAI) can be better understood or put into context by lay people who could one day benefit from breakthrough therapies.

Atai Life Sciences N.V. (ATAI), closed Tuesday's trading session at $2.88, up 1.0526%, on 1,839,688 volume. The average volume for the last 3 months is 350 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $2.60/$15.115.

These parameters are currently being tested in an FDA-cleared clinical trial.

CycloSam® has been shown in laboratory testing to cause significantly less (30x less) buildup of long-lived radionuclidic impurities than prior FDA-approved drugs, which management believes will enable the ability to safely administer therapeutic doses via higher and multiple-dose regimens and effectively expand its potential clinical utility to therapeutic uses in areas of high unmet medical needs.

The indications for CycloSam® currently being evaluated by QSAM Biosciences include:

  • Metastatic Bone Cancers – On April 28, 2022, QSAM Biosciences announced that the first patient had commenced treatment in its clinical trial evaluating CycloSam in patients with metastatic bone cancer. As noted in the release, the study is a Phase 1 open-label, dose-escalation trial to evaluate the safety, tolerability, dosimetry, and preliminary efficacy of CycloSam®.
  • Pediatric Osteosarcoma/Ewing’s Sarcoma – On February 2, 2022, the company announced that the U.S. FDA has granted Rare Pediatric Disease Designation to CycloSam for the treatment of osteosarcoma. Combined with a previously granted orphan drug designation for osteosarcoma received in 2021, this milestone “may allow QSAM to potentially bring CycloSam® to market more rapidly through additional incentives and eligibilities,” according to CEO Douglas Baum.
  • Bone Marrow Ablation – In a 2020 single patient Investigational New Drug (IND) study, an investigator concluded that high-dose CycloSam® can be administered safely to ablate bone marrow in advance of a stem cell transplant with no apparent renal toxicity and no unexpected adverse events attributable to the drug.

QSAM Biosciences’ preclinical and clinical development pipeline is supported by a strong IP portfolio. The company has secured 14 patents across three distinct patent families spanning the U.S., Japan, Canada and the European Union.

Market Outlook

Through its ongoing development of CycloSam®, QSAM Biosciences is targeting multiple large and underserved market opportunities. According to the American Cancer Society, roughly 400,000 new cases of malignant bone metastasis are diagnosed annually in the U.S. alone. Additionally, QSAM will pursue indications for osteosarcoma and Ewing’s sarcoma that are the most common primary malignancies of bone tissues in children.

Despite this pressing need, the current standard of care for bone cancer is aggressive and suboptimal, leading to marginal success with significant side effects and poor long-term survival prognosis. As a result, QSAM Biosciences estimates a sizable market opportunity for its development pipeline.

  • Bone Metastasis has an estimated total addressable market of $20 billion in the U.S. based on total new cases and comparable drug pricing.
  • Osteosarcoma/Ewing’s Sarcoma have a total addressable market of roughly $125 million in the U.S. based on approximately 1,000 new cases in 2021.
  • The total addressable market for Bone Marrow Ablation is projected at $1 billion, with an estimated 32,000 procedures completed annually.

The company anticipates that the ability to administer CycloSam® for higher and multiple-dose regimens may expand its clinical utility for therapeutic uses in additional areas of high unmet medical needs.

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:

  • NanoAbs targeting IL-17 as drug candidates for the potential treatment of psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis
  • NanoAbs targeting IL-13 and NanoAbs targeting TSLP as drug candidates for the potential treatment of asthma

These are conditions for which the antibody target is validated by existing treatments and the mechanism of action is well understood. Both represent large medical needs and growing markets. BiondVax anticipates preclinical proof-of-concept for at least one of these NanoAbs in 2023. This is in addition to the aforementioned human clinical Phase 1/2a for the inhaled COVID-19 NanoAb therapy, which is also anticipated in 2023.

Market Opportunity

COVID-19 treatment, target of the company’s lead NanoAb therapy candidate, had an estimated market size of $22 billion in 2021.

Future BiondVax drug candidates will target conditions with large markets growing at attractive CAGRs.

The global asthma treatment market was valued at $18.08 billion in 2019 and is projected to reach $26.01 billion by 2027, exhibiting a CAGR of 4.5% during the forecast period, according to Fortune Business Insights. The research firm predicts that the global psoriasis treatment market will grow from $26.37 billion in 2022 to $47.24 billion by 2029, exhibiting a CAGR of 8.7% over the forecast period.

Flora Growth Corp. (NASDAQ: FLGC)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight Flora Growth Corp. (NASDAQ: FLGC).

There are an estimated 3.6 million registered medical cannabis patients in the United States withslightly more than 700,000 residing in the state of Florida. But, despite the fact that dozens of states have legalized medical marijuana and launched legal markets, thedrug is still illegal at the federal level. This often leads tosituations where businesses and customers abiding by state law arepenalized by the federal government, which still considers cannabisto be illegal. One major example is the fact that cannabisbusinesses cannot access banking and financial services despite paying billions of dollars in taxes. On the other end of the spectrum, recreational andmedical cannabis customers have also found themselves running afoulof federal law despite consuming cannabis as per state law. Forstarters, the federal government has banned medical cannabispatients from purchasing and possessing firearms, a move that has been called unconstitutional because it is indirect violation of the second and fifth amendments. Theseinconsistencies between federal marijuana policy and state-levellaws don’t just affect consumers. Even companies such as Flora Growth Corp. (NASDAQ: FLGC) find themselves having to navigate a complex legal maze in orderto adhere to state laws while avoiding running afoul of federalpolicies.

  • CardioMap® is intended to provide early, non-invasive testing for heart disease. The system offers a number of potential advantages over traditional EKGs, including requiring less training to operate, offering heightened sensitivity and coming in a small and portable form factor. CardioMap is being developed for a 510(k) regulatory pathway, which requires a study to demonstrate equivalence to legacy EKG offerings.
    • When approved, CardioMap is expected to be the only device in its class that has a predictive value, illustrating ‘grey’ areas where deterioration has begun but not yet led to pathology. Odyssey expects this feature to provide a powerful incentive for doctors to use the CardioMap device in end markets such as hospitals, doctors’ offices, rehabilitation centers and sports medicine practices.
  • Save-A-Life (SAL) is a patented, single-action, instantaneous, handheld, mechanical anti-choking device that creates a vacuum chamber in the mouth to dislodge throat obstructions in a matter of seconds, all without harm to the victim. The device is currently in development, with a proof of concept established.
    • Odyssey believes that, once FDA-approved, its anti-choking device will quickly become the “accepted” standard and leader in the treatment of choking incidents globally. Its low-cost manufacturing and convenient portable design give SAL a competitive edge over competing devices utilizing cumbersome masks.

Market Opportunities

Odyssey’s varied development pipeline positions it to address a number of sizable market opportunities with significant unmet medical need. Concussions alone currently account for medical costs of roughly $10-15 billion annually in the U.S., despite the lack of a currently approved FDA drug treatment. This need is particularly apparent in the military and sports industry, where the likelihood of athlete head-injury recurrence is estimated at 75%.

It is for this reason that, in March 2021, Odyssey announced the formation of a sports advisory board featuring well-known athletes supporting the company’s efforts to enhance public awareness of traumatic brain injuries and concussions, as well as the need for an FDA-approved therapy. Members of Odyssey’s sports advisory board include NFL Hall of Famers Kurt Warner & Brett Favre and two-time Olympic gold medalist Abby Wambach.

With its CardioMap platform, Odyssey is targeting the global cardiac monitoring market, which was valued at $28 billion in 2021 by Insight Partners and forecast to reach $43 billion by 2028.

Save-A-Life targets a similarly underserved market. Choking is the fourth-leading cause of death in children, and approximately 5,000 choking deaths occur each year in the U.S. While 95% of these deaths result from in-home incidents, current choking rescue devices fail to address in-home applications.

Management Team

Joseph Michael Redmond is the President, CEO and Chairman of Odyssey. He has over 30 years of commercial experience in medical device companies, previously serving as CEO of Parallax Health Sciences Inc., V.P. of Business Development for DxTech Inc. and V.P. of Sales and Marketing for Bioject Medical Technologies Inc. While at Bioject, Mr. Redmond helped raise over $15 million in capital, entered into several licensing and distribution deals with major biotech and pharmaceutical companies and grew the market cap of the company from under $10 million to over $400 million. He started his career at Abbott Labs and holds a B.A. from Denison University.

Christine M. Farrell is the company’s CFO and Secretary. Prior to joining Odyssey, Ms. Farrell was Vice President of Finance for Bioject Medical Technologies Inc. She also held accounting and financial management positions with Spar-Tek Industries, a manufacturer of high quality and cutting-edge technology for the plywood industry, and Action Machinery, a seller of new and used robotic machine tools and equipment. Ms. Farrell holds a B.A. in Accounting from the University of Washington and an M.B.A. from Willamette University.

REZYFi, Inc.

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight REZYFi, Inc.

President Joseph Biden made plenty of promises while on the campaign trail, including his pledge to offermarijuana pardons. One of his more progressive statements, thepromise was met with praise from drug reform activists across thecountry. Last month, President Biden announced that he was taking steps to pardon everyone who had been federally convicted of simple marijuana possessionoffenses. The announcement was met with surprise as the Bidenadministration has been largely silent on cannabis reform despiteBiden’s campaign promises. Biden also instructed governors to issuesimilar pardons at the state level and stated that he would initiate an administrative review of marijuana’s scheduling at the federal level. This is the systemof classification that classifies cannabis at the same level asdangerous drugs like heroin and cocaine. Biden noted that it made no sense that marijuana, which has been found to have a variety of medicalapplications, is considered to be more dangerous than fentanyl atthe federal level. Marijuana crime pardons are just one of thereforms that activists want to see implemented. Access tomainstream banking is also limited for marijuana companies, whichis why solutions such as those provided by REZYFi Inc. are gaining traction within the cannabis industry. However, fullaccess to banking services is the ideal situation for thesestate-legal businesses.

REZYFi, Inc. is a cannabis mortgage bank servicing the needs of both traditional and non-traditional consumers and businesses. Its target markets include licensed and permitted cannabis companies, owners of real estate who lease to cannabis companies, and companies and individual homeowners seeking a variety of real estate-related first and additional mortgage-based financing and project-specific financings, such as solar installations and real estate development projects.

Headquartered in Miami, Florida, REZYFi operates through two wholly owned subsidiaries – REZYFi Lending, which primarily addresses emerging real estate-related financing opportunities, and ResMac Inc., the company’s traditional mortgage origination, correspondent and servicing operation. REZYFi is currently licensed in 34 U.S. states, with plans to expand to all remaining states later this year.

REZYFi is positioned as one of first cannabis mortgage bankers in the U.S., while most traditional lenders are still reticent to serve the state-licensed cannabis industry.


REZYFi Lending

REZYFi Lending leverages a wide network to offer options such as 15- and 30-year fixed-rate loans, FHA loans, VA loans, reverse mortgages, jumbo loans and adjustable-rate mortgages.

Looking ahead, the company expects increased funding in marketing and loan agents to drive significant origination growth over the next two years, further supported by the planned launch of a high-margin cannabis division later this year.

ResMac Inc.

ResMac has been in operation for 13 years, having closed more than 20,000 loans for more than 15,000 clients. The company expects to accumulate $285 million in retail origination in 2023, alongside $250 million in wholesale origination for the same period. ResMac is further targeting $600 million in origination through its mortgage correspondent operations for 2023.

Through its ResMac subsidiary, REZYFi operates as a direct lender and originator of residential mortgages, with active mortgage correspondent and mortgage servicing operations. Through its correspondent segment, ResMac primarily purchases and aggregates residential mortgages from trusted third-party originators.

The company intends to harvest the database of customers within its mortgage servicing operations as an essential source of additional growth, especially relative to the new alternative residential loan programs being offered.

Corporate Strengths

  • Experience – REZYFi is led by a seasoned management team with significant expertise spanning a wide range of real estate and financing subsectors. The team also has extensive experience in the cannabis and hemp marketplace, which the company intends to leverage as it navigates the changing landscape of the cannabis industry while sourcing the best opportunities in the sector.
  • Network of Independent Brokers – Over the past five years, REZYFi has developed an extensive network of independent mortgage-related brokers and licensed loan officers. The company is currently training the network members on its new service offerings, with many already launching sales efforts. REZYFi believes this network will be a vital asset moving forward as other firms in the sector terminate relationships in the face of slowing mortgage business in a rising interest rate environment.
  • Proprietary Technology – REZYFi has invested heavily in designing, building and implementing proprietary automated/machine learning technology to shorten loan processing timeframes and increase efficiencies, allowing it to operate its legacy business at staffing levels meaningfully below those of its competitors.

Market Overview

REZYFi’s diversified approach to the real estate lending sector positions it to capitalize on growth in multiple verticals in the years to come.

In the first quarter of 2022, lenders issued 2.71 million residential loans, with the average balance for a first mortgage climbing to a record high of $298,324 in 2021, according to the Mortgage Bankers Association. This trend is expected to continue, with Freddie Mac forecasting a 10.4 percent increase in home prices in 2022 and a 5.0 percent bump in 2023. Growth prospects in the cannabis industry paint a similar picture.

The National Association of Realtors® issued a report in April 2021 examining the correlation between cannabis legalization and real estate demand. In states where prescription and recreational cannabis use is legal, more than a third of surveyed agents reported an increase in demand for warehouses. Likewise, 23 percent of those surveyed reported an increase in demand for storefronts, and 28 percent observed increased demand for land. As other states look to join the 19 that have embraced full cannabis legalization, this rising demand could create an opportunity for REZYFi’s cannabis-focused initiatives.

In total, an analysis by market research firm Business Research Insights projects the global loan servicing market to reach a value of nearly $1.5 billion by 2028, up from $680.8 million in 2021. Those figures represent a CAGR of 11.0 percent during the forecast period of 2022-2028.

Cub Crafters Inc. (typically styled CubCrafters) is an OEM aircraft manufacturer based at McAllister Field Airport in Yakima, Washington. The company was founded in 1980 to build parts and supplementary type certificate (STC) improvement modifications, which were used to establish it as the preeminent center for rebuilding the classic Piper PA-18 Super Cub light aircraft. CubCrafters went on to advance the market with its own, newly manufactured aircraft models and holds an approved Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Production Certificate. Yakima-based operations include an engineering design-test-certification center, aircraft parts and assembly production facilities, and an MRO maintenance service and overhaul facility.

The first newly manufactured aircraft by the company, the CC18-180 Top Cub, was Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) type certified in December 2004. The Top Cub was also granted type certificates (TC) by Transport Canada in July 2008, followed by Australian certification in August of that same year. With the FAA’s release of the new Light Sport Aircraft (LSA) class, CubCrafters created a brand-new model in 2008, the CC11-100 Sport Cub, similarly based on the original Piper J-3 Cub’s appearance, which it validated to ASTM international standards as an LSA. This model advanced to become known as the Carbon Cub, the bestselling LSA of all time in the U.S.

CubCrafters focuses on four main product lines, including the Carbon Cub SS, Carbon Cub FX, XCub, and the Top Cub under license. Some models are built to be lightweight and powerful for quicker flights, while others are built for longer missions in unforgiving backcountry environments.

CubCrafters has a service and overhaul facility for PA-18 Super Cubs and other Cub derivative designs at its Yakima headquarters. The company sells aircraft kits as well as finished aircraft.


The Carbon Cub is available in three variants: Carbon Cub SS (production Light Sport Aircraft), Carbon Cub FX (an innovative Builder Assist E/A-B aircraft) and Carbon Cub EX (E/A-B aircraft kit). Carbon Cub has been designed for off-airport operation with a powerful engine, strong lightweight airframe and nimble low-speed manners. The Carbon Cub has taken the fundamentally superior design of the Piper Super Cub and reinvented it using 21st century materials and computer-aided design. Superior engineering results include the Carbon Cub having 50% fewer parts and weighing more than 300 pounds less than a similarly equipped Super Cub. Now in its third generation of innovation advancements, there are over 1,000 Carbon Cubs flying.

The CubCrafters CC19-180 XCub, FAA Certified and introduced in June 2016, is supplied complete and ready-to-fly. The XCub is a further scaled development of the CubCrafters Carbon Cub, which the company continues to supply, but with higher performance and incorporating more structural carbon fiber. The XCub was developed over a six-year period and not publicly announced until FAA TC had been completed and issued. The process was completed organically using company resources and did not involve any venture capital, loans nor any advanced customer deposits. XCub is built on a wholly original fuselage design. The CNC-milled 4130 chromoly steel frame meets the latest FAA Part 23 certification standards for 2,300-pound gross weight aircraft. XCub’s useful load is as high as 1,084 pounds. Current Part 23 certification requirements ensure this is the strongest Cub ever produced. It can fly farther, providing greater comfort. It is an airplane that has taken the best from the past and, using the very latest in design, material and manufacturing technology, has established a new standard.

The XCub was approved by the FAA for seaplane operations in December 2017. That same month, EASA approved the XCub design and issued a new type certificate. Four international type certificates have been gained: EASA Dec-2017, Canada Feb-2018, Japan April-2018, and Australia Aug-2018.

CubCrafters increased the horsepower of the XCub line in 2019, offering two new models: the CC19-215 FAA Certified version and the CCX-2300 Builder Assist, both powered by the new CC393i 215 HP engine built by Lycoming.

In December 2021, CubCrafters gained FAA Certification of a new nose wheel version of the XCub, branded the NXCub.

Arizona Metals owns 100% of two copper and gold explorationprojects in mining-friendly Arizona

Both projects have excellent infrastructure, including roads,available power and water access

Only 3% of the prospectively mineralized trend that hosts thehigh-grade Kay Mine Deposit has been drilled

The company had $60 million in cash as of June 30, 2022, tocomplete Phase 2 and begin Phase 3 drilling at the Kay Mine

Arizona Metals Corp. (TSX: AMC) (OTCQX: AZMCF) is a mineral exploration company engaged in advancing precious and base metal deposits in the state of Arizona. Its flagship copper-gold-zinc-silver asset is the Kay Mine Project, located in Yavapai County. The company also owns Sugarloaf Peak gold project in La Paz County.

The company in November 2022 received permit approval from the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) for two new drill pads, located approximately 1,200 meters west of the Kay Mine Deposit. These new pads will allow for testing of the company’s Western Target, while also allowing for drilling of additional coincident anomalies located between the Central and Western Targets. Construction of the drill road for the Central Target (located 500 meters west of the Kay Mine Deposit) is currently underway, with drilling expected to begin in November 2022. Road construction for the Western Target will begin upon confirmation of BLM acceptance of the company’s posted bond, with drilling expected to commence in Q1 2023.

The company is fully funded, with $60 million in cash as of June 30, 2022, to complete the remaining 18,000 meters planned for the Phase 2 program at Kay, as well as an additional 76,000 meters in the Phase 3 program (budgeted at $27 million), which will be used to test the numerous parallel targets heading west of the Kay Deposit, as well as the northern and southern extensions of the Kay Deposit.

Arizona Metals Corp. is based in Toronto, Canada.


Arizona Metals Corp. owns 100% of the Kay Mine property in Yavapai County, which is located on a combination of patented and BLM claims totaling 1,300 acres that are not subject to any royalties.

None of the key assumptions, parameters, and methods used to prepare the historic estimate were reported by Exxon, and no resource categories were used. Significant data compilation, re-drilling and data verification may be required by a “qualified person” (as defined in National Instrument 43-101 – Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects) before the historic estimate can be verified and upgraded to be a current mineral resource. A qualified person has not done sufficient work to classify it as a current mineral resource, and Arizona Metals is not treating the historic estimate as a current mineral resource.

The company also owns 100% of the Sugarloaf Peak Property in La Paz County, which is located on 4,400 acres of BLM claims. Sugarloaf is a heap-leach, open-pit target and has a historic estimate of “100 million tons containing 1.5 million ounces (of) gold” at a grade of 0.5 grams per ton. The historic estimate at the Sugarloaf Peak Property was reported by Westworld Resources in 1983. The historic estimate has not been verified as a current mineral resource. None of the key assumptions, parameters, and methods used to prepare the historic estimate were reported, and no resource categories were used. Significant data compilation, re-drilling and data verification may be required by a qualified person before the historic estimate can be verified and upgraded to a current mineral resource.

Market Opportunity

The World Gold Council, an industry association representing gold producers with hundreds of mining operations in nearly 50 countries around the world, reports that global demand for gold during the first six months of 2022 was 2,189 tons, a 12% increase in demand over the same period in 2021. Demand came primarily from gold bar and coin investors, jewelry consumers, central bank purchases to bolster currency reserves and technology manufacturing.

The average price per ounce for the period was $1,871, marking a 1% year-over-year increase. The council reported gold mine production for the period was up 3% over 2021 at 1,764 tons. For the remainder of 2022 and into 2023, the council projects flat gold demand with possible slight increases in gold mine production. The council notes that unpredictable geopolitical factors, the Ukraine war for example, and likelihood of global economic slowdown could have significant near-term impact on gold demand and prices.

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.

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.

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.

Moving forward,we are focused on building momentum and advancing this importantprogram across the finish line.” To view the full press release,visit With the fields of machine learning and artificial intelligence (AI) evolving almost daily, experts in several industries aretrying to figure out ways the technology can advance their specificsectors. Artificial intelligence can analyze an unfathomable number of data points in shockingly little time and come up with conclusions that would have otherwise takenhundreds if not thousands of human work hours. In medicine,researchers hope this ability can help them treat two of the mostdifficult-to-treat diseases on the planet: brain and spinal tumors.Referred to as cavernous malformations, these are vascular tumors that develop in the spinal cord orbrain and often result in severe health issues such as stroke,blindness and epilepsy. Patients with cavernous malformations canalso suffer from numbness, trouble with movement and tinglingfeelings throughout their entire body.

CNS Pharmaceuticals Inc. (NASDAQ: CNSP) is a clinical stage biotechnology company specializing in the development of novel treatments for primary and metastatic cancers of the brain and central nervous system.

The company was founded in 2017 and is headquartered in Houston, Texas.

Organ Targeted Therapeutics

The company’s lead drug candidate, Berubicin, is proposed for the treatment of glioblastoma multiforme (“GBM”), an aggressive and incurable form of brain cancer. Berubicin also has potential to treat other central nervous system malignancies. Based on limited clinical data, Berubicin appears to be the first anthracycline to cross the blood brain barrier in the adult brain, and it was the subject of a successful Phase 1 study which found the MDT and produced efficacy data as well.

CNS holds a worldwide exclusive license to the Berubicin chemical compound. The company has acquired all requisite data and know-how from Reata Pharmaceuticals Inc. related to a completed Phase I clinical trial of Berubicin in malignant brain tumors. In this trial, 44% of patients experienced a statistically significant improvement in clinical benefit. In 2017, CNS entered into a collaboration and asset purchase agreement with Reata.

CNS intends to explore the potential of Berubicin to treat other diseases, including pancreatic and ovarian cancers and lymphoma. The company is also examining plans to develop combination therapies that include Berubicin.

CNS estimates that more than $25 million in private capital and grants were invested in Berubicin prior to the company’s $9.8 million IPO in November 2019.

CNS intends to submit an IND for Berubicin during the fourth quarter of 2020 and expects to commence a Phase II clinical trial of Berubicin for the treatment of GBM in the U.S. in Q1 2021. A sub-licensee partner was awarded a $6 million EU/Polish National Center for Research and Development grant to undertake a Phase II trial of Berubicin in adults and a first-ever Phase I trial in pediatric GBM patients in Poland in 2021.

The company’s second drug candidate, WP1244, is a novel DNA binding agent licensed from the MD Anderson Cancer Center. In preclinical studies, WP1244 proved to be 500-times more potent than the chemotherapeutic agent, daunorubicin, in inhibiting tumor cell proliferation. The company has entered into a sponsored research agreement with the MD Anderson Cancer Center to further the development of WP1244.

CNS Pharmaceuticals recently engaged U.S.-based Pharmaceutics International Inc. and Italian BSP Pharmaceuticals SpA for the production of the Berubicin drug product. The company has implemented a dual-track manufacturing strategy to mitigate COVID-19-related risks, diversify its supply chain and provide for localized availability of Berubicin. CNS has already completed synthesis of Berubicin’s active pharmaceutical ingredient (API) and has shipped the API to both manufacturers in order to prepare an injectable form of Berubicin for clinical use.

Global Brain Tumor Therapeutics Market

The high recurrence rate of malignant brain tumors is due to reappearance of focal masses, indicating that a sub-population of tumor cells in these cancers may be insensitive to current therapies and may be responsible for reinitiating tumor growth. This necessitates the development of newer drugs in the market that demonstrate greater efficacy in treating such aggressive cancers.

A global increase in neurological disorders has placed increased attention on cancers of the brain over the past decade. Neurological disorders are becoming one of the most prevalent types of disorders, due to longer life expectancy, greater exposure to infection and an increasingly sedentary lifestyle. Because few treatments for primary and metastatic cancers of the brain exist, costs are high and have acted as a restraint for the brain tumor therapeutics market.

Despite progress in surgery, radiotherapy and chemotherapeutic strategies, effective treatments for brain cancer are limited by a lack of specific therapies for the brain and the difficulty in transporting therapeutic compounds across the blood brain barrier. Therefore, there is a significant need for novel and effective therapeutic drugs and strategies that prolong survival and improve quality of life for brain tumor patients.

Several companies are making significant investments into R&D, which is expected to bring more treatment options to the market in the near future. Industry reports consistently project continued growth in the market.

One report estimates that the global brain tumor therapeutics market will reach a valuation of $2.74 billion in 2023, with the market expected to register a CAGR of 11% during the forecast period from 2018 to 2023. Another report projects that the global brain tumor therapeutics market will reach $3.4 billion by 2025, up from $2.25 billion in 2019 (
