Two Stocks Moving Up On News

On November 5, we recommended Global Cannabis Applications Corp. (FUAPF) (APP.CN) in our article "A Cannabis and Blockchain Story" at $0.09. Since then, FUAPF has risen to $0.13 and as high as $0.16 on excitement over its Citizen Green platform that is set to redefine the way that medical cannabis data is stored and shared across the globe. On November 12, we recommended Rand Logistics, Inc. (RLOG) on expectations that improving financials would lift the stock in our article "RLOG: Improved Financials And Insider Buying From A Local Bank Executive Foretells Positive Future Events?" It closed last week at $0.71 and rocketed up 19% in the last few minutes of trading to end Tuesday at $0.80 before Q3 financials came out.

Reviewing the SEC filing, RLOG's revenue in Q2 (July-Sept) increased very slightly from $39.2 million to $39.5 million from 2016 to 2017. This is significant because it reversed the declining trend in revenue that the company has been seeing over the past several quarters. The EPS In Q2 2017 was $0.07 which was down from $0.14 in the quarter from the prior year, but with the stock price being in significant decline over the past several years, the market could consider this to be an undervalued turnaround play at $0.80. RLOG's business is seasonal and Q2 is generally its best quarter since its business is shipping on the Great Lakes between the Canada and U.S. border.

The initial reaction to the quarterly result was positive as RLOG traded well over $1.00 after hours before it pulled back. So pay close attention to RLOG on Wednesday morning. It could re-test the level it saw in the initial after hours reaction and spike from there.

But there may be much more to this than simply expecting a positive reaction to a quarterly EPS of $0.07 on an $0.80 stock. There has been fairly substantial insider buying from Brent D. Baird of First Carolina Investors Inc. and M&T Bank Corporation (MTB). Unlike Kalani on Dryships (DRYS) and Topships (TOPS) which just abuse the capital markets by dumping to retail investors at ever lower prices, the buying from Baird has been REAL insider buying from a REAL investor. 

On March 27, 2017, Baird filed that he owned 1 million shares of  RLOG, 5.37% of the company's entire float. Just five months later on August 24, 2017, he filed that he owned 2.9 million shares, or 15.85% of the float. It looks like these purchases are part of his own personal investing rather than as a representative of the fund or bank he works with. During that time period between March 27 and August 24, there were a few times where the stock suddenly experienced a surge in volume, but then died down over the next several days. July 14th and 17th in particular. Were those the days that Baird was buying the 1.9 million more shares? Has he bought more since August 24? Was he responsible for the madness seen last Tuesday? If so, we can only guess as to how much more he bought until we see an updated filing. 

Understand why this is so important. Baird sits on the Board of Directors of M&T Bank, a bank in Buffalo which is located right on Lake Erie of the Great Lakes. Baird and MTB are right in RLOG's backyard. RLOG management has made mention several times about restructuring its debt. I don't think we need to put two and two together for our readers, they can take a pretty good guess at what we think is going on there. When The Bon-Ton Stores, Inc. (BONT) announced an amendment to its credit facility on October 24, the stock price quadrupled in two days before the company announced that it is de-listing and going onto OTC, killing the momentum. If you look at BONT and RLOG, both companies are in similar shape with their financials even though they are in very different industries. So an announcement for RLOG that is similar in tone as it was for BONT could likely see a similar reaction on the share price.

FUAPF rose on news of the release of its updated website and investor presentation, detailing the imminent arrival of the Citizen Green platform and the impact it will have on the medical marijuana industry. The news release stated:

"Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada / TheNewswire / November 14, 2017 - Global Cannabis Applications Corp. ("GCAC" or the "Company") (CSE:APP, FWB:2FA, OTCQB:FUAPF), a leading developer of innovative data technologies for the cannabis industry, is pleased to announce the launch of a new corporate website at www.cannappscorp.com and investor presentation.

"The new corporate website and investor presentation captures the vision and the value of building a world-leading medical cannabis community and supporting database," said Brad Moore, Chief Executive Officer of GCAC. "We are excited about the opportunity to become the trusted source for all information relating to the medical cannabis community, and we will achieve this goal through advanced technology by offering the best content with the most trusted information on the most interesting and intuitive mobile applications."

The new GCAC website and Investor Presentation highlights GCAC's focus on the multibillion-dollar global medical cannabis markets and the noticeable lack of regulatory-approved medical cannabis products beyond its basic leaf form. The regulatory process to approve cannabis products is slow and inefficient, and it takes substantial time to generate data for product approvals through clinical studies. With over 42 governments moving forward with the legalization of medical cannabis, there is a need and an opportunity to fill the medical cannabis data void using advanced technology.

A key focus of both the website and the Investor Presentation is the Citizen Green platform, which uses six core technologies to aggregate anecdotal and clinical trial data to pre-qualify candidates for clinical studies. Pre-qualifying will increase the speed and improve the efficiency of data collection and the approval process for medical cannabis products. As the medical cannabis community grows and the database expands, GCAC's platform becomes more powerful and the Company expects all stakeholders of medical cannabis will see the value of GCAC's data and information.

Current shareholders and qualified investors can receive the new corporate presentation by "signing up for updates" on the corporate website at www.cannappscorp.com.
