Friday Recap: Week Ending January 5th, 2018

Well, that was certainly an interesting week! As you are well aware, the pot stock sector took a beating this week thanks to that of Attorney General Jeff Sessions. As many suspected, he began his crackdown this week on American marijuana laws by rescinding current policies the federal government has towards legalization. This sent the markets in a tizzy on Thursday, after setting countless new highs earlier in the week. Needless to say, it was a wild start to 2018!

Speaking to that, Happy New Year to all of our viewers. With the holiday season effectively over, it’s now time for many of us to buckle down and find our quality plays for the year. Many have been reviewing their long term picks over the past couple weeks, as well as their projections for where the market will land by years end. Will Canada actually see recreational legalization, or will it be pushed off? What effect will this have on the markets? And just as importantly, how will the Cali Rally play out?

With respect to the last question, the next couple months will be interesting for those that have exposure to this massive market. California alone has a larger population base than that of Canada, so it will provide an excellent comparison to how things will go up here, minus the whole federally illegal bit. The week started off excellent for the likes of Lifestyle Delivery Systems, Friday Night, et all, however they were off put due to yesterdays news. We’ll be watching this market closely for signs of whats to come.

And with that, time for our weekly recap!

BRIEF: 3 Concerns Related to MPX Bioceutical

Next up to bat is our briefing on MPX Bioceuticals. Although this piece came off as rather pessimistic, its purpose was for us to air our grievances related to the company. Largely, this was focused around the share structure. As noted within, this article contains our concerns that arose while working on our next full analysis, which is due out this Sunday. Of particular note, is the heavy selling pressure being created by an ex-insider of the company. Will this trend continue, or will it be able to buck the selling pressure to move higher?

 

Data Deposit Box (CSE: DDB)

BRIEF: Data Deposit Box – A Traders Paradise

We recently did an article on Data Deposit Box, and we received some flak for it. The consensus was from many commentators that it was largely traders moving in based on volume to the stock, rather than that of investors. This was our follow up to those comments, where we identified what the stock had going for it for those inclined to trade. We also examined the net house positions, and what they mean for those involved in the stock.

To lend them a hand, we identified the current derivatives outstanding for the stock, and identified price points that traders need to be aware of. To wrap it up, we also identified the impact hype can have on the mentality of an investor.
