Understanding the Basics of Bitcoin, Cryptocurrency and Blockchain

For those who have heard about bitcoin, cryptocurrency and blockchain but don't really understand it, here is an unbiased look into the basics of all three and the motivation for wanting to store information, financial or otherwise, onto the blockchain:

A Cannabis and Blockchain Story III: Part of a Larger Weed Tech Empire

For those who have followed our picks recently, we have had some very good success picking stocks trading in Canada that are in the Cannabis realm without being growers themselves. In July we picked Isodiol International (LAGBF) (ISOL.CN) in our articles Isodiol: 10x Undervalued Cannabis Stock Inks Deals With Canopy and Isodiol: A Profitable Cannabis Company. ISOL has moved up nearly ten times since then, hitting a high of $2.14 in Canada from $0.23. In November we picked Global Cannabis Applications, or GCAC, (FUAPF) (APP.CN) in our article A Cannabis and Blockchain Story. GCAC has more than doubled in a month and we think it has a lot more room to go, especially after what we have found out researching today's news.

GCAC announced that it has partnered with a leading Israeli pharmaceutical company to provide medical cannabis data to blockchain. That company is called SciCann Therapeutics and its CEO Dr. Zohar Koren was a co-founder of Cannabics Pharmaceuticals (CNBX). What we found interesting is that a firm called ThreeD Capital (BWSOF) (IDK.CN) has made a private equity investment in SciCann Therapeutics with a fair value of $100,000. ThreeD Capital recently invested in GCAC as well through private placements, and is up substantially on that investment so far. ThreeD Capital is only a small firm with a market cap of around $10 million, but it's led by Sheldon Inwentash, a famous Canadian multi-millionaire investor who specializes in small cap ventures. Clearly he is the one behind this relationship between GCAC and SciCann. It looks like he is trying to build a weed tech empire.

If you are reading our reports for the first time and have missed out on ISOL and the rest of the explosive weed industry, GCAC may be a second chance for you to score a big gain. Even though it has more than doubled since we first called it, it is still lagging ISOL and the rest of the weed players, many of which have more than quintupled this year. During the decade-long gold bull market we saw earlier this century, what made investors more money? Barrick Gold? Or Caterpillar? Here's a stock price comparison of ABX versus CAT since 2001 when gold began its decade-long bull run in case the point we are trying to make isn't clear:



ABX has decreased 12% since 2001 and CAT has increased 421% during that time. Even when gold was hot, ABX and CAT performed about the same then really split off once gold pulled back from $1,800 an ounce. This doesn't even consider the dividend yield. CAT's yield is 2.3% and ABX is only 0.9%. Long-term CAT investors have made in excess of five times their money (a $3 dividend on a 2001 CAT cost basis of $30 is a 10% annual yield) and ABX investors have struggled to get a return that beats a t-bill.

Why is this? Other than poor management decisions at ABX, gold is a commodity product and there are a lot of companies out there trying to look for it or dig it out of the ground. However, there are only a handful of companies out there that make the equipment to dig mineral resources out of the ground. They have been the ones to benefit the most from any gold rush. Cannabis is a commodity product and there are many growers out there. But there are only a handful of companies looking to service the industry in other ways. One could argue that cannabis isn't traded like gold is and the weed companies would not be susceptible to dips in its price. But how long will that last? Cannabis is an agricultural product just like wheat, corn or beef so it could eventually trade on futures markets.

GCAC doesn't touch the leaf but is a Caterpillar to the weed industry. It describes itself as the "Only technology driven cannabis tech company to offer an end-to-end data aggregation and user delivery solution". What does all that mean? More on that later, or look at the investor presentation from where that quote came from.

Whether weed stocks are trading at their speculative peak like gold in 2010 or still have a lot more to go like gold did in 2005, we don't know. But odds are that companies that find unique ways to service the cannabis industry and can successfully execute while trading at stock prices reflective of being undiscovered, overlooked or misunderstood by the market, they will outperform the growers at this point in time until the market catches on and stretches their valuations in a similar way. This is another reason why we picked Isodiol. It is a profitable company that found a unique way to service the cannabis market and would be a big winner in the event of legalization for recreational use.

GCAC is on whole other level when it comes to OTC speculative risk compared to Isodiol. It doesn't have any revenues yet and a minimal balance sheet, although the recent private placements that included strategic investment by Sheldon Inwentash and his investment firm gave it some cash. When you're the CEO of a company with no revenue and a minimal balance sheet, all you have to bring to the table is your word. And so far GCAC's CEO Bradley Moore has been a man of his word. What GCAC has is a concept that is turning into a reality.

GCAC's CEO has made promises to get things rolling in Q4 and has so far delivered. In November, the company updated its website and created a new investor presentation. The bigger accomplishment came from the listing of the CannaLife app on the Google Play store. The app has been listed since November 15 and has gotten a total of 100-500 installs. This isn't a lot but GCAC has an actionable plan to acquire a lot of users quickly. The CannaLife app was made by GCAC's subsidiary, Foro Technologies. Foro Technologies is also the developer of Foro Student Marketplace, an app where university students can buy and sell goods with fellow students on campus. The app has 50,000-100,000 installs and a reasonably good 4.2 rating. About one-quarter of young people are cannabis users, so GCAC could use Foro as leverage to quickly grow CannaLife's user base to about 25,000. Foro is also available in the Apple Store, and CannaLife recently became available for iOS. In the investor presentation, GCAC claims that it has over 300,000 subscribers who fit the Citizen Green target demographic.

Having scrolled through CannaLife ourselves, we found one user with nearly 4,000 followers. So there is a lot more users than what is being reported on the Google Play store.



FUAPF currently trades at a market cap of $16 million and around $20 million CAD under its Canadian symbol APP. GCAC had a feature in the CannaInvestor Magazine for October which goes into great detail of its business plan as well as gives it legitimacy having been featured in a cannabis industry magazine. The CannaInvestor article starts off with the company mission statement:

"Global Cannabis Applications Corp. is a global leader in designing, developing, marketing, and acquiring innovative data technologies for the cannabis industry. GCAC's Citizen Green technologies include mobile applications, blockchain infrastructure and artificial Intelligence. These technologies facilitate the proliferation of digital conversations by like-minded people in medical cannabis. Managed by digital and cannabis industry experts, GCAC is focused on viral global expansion by providing the best digital experience in the cannabis market."

The article then goes on to talk about the company's Citizen Green platform, which GCAC proposes will be the only one in the world the can offer an end-to-end data aggregation and user delivery system for the cannabis industry. It can be broken down into four parts:

This platform starts with the newly released CannaLife, a social media app that users can use to rate their experiences with various forms of medical cannabis. It seeks to develop a community environment which might not be possible on more mainstream social media platforms where cannabis is considered controversial.

Prescriptii also allows for the rating of cannabis products but sounds more like a Yelp type of business rather than an actual community like CannaLife. GCAC is looking to roll out Prescriptii in North America before the end of the year and internationally shortly after that. It looks like both CannaLife and Prescriptii will be used to aggregate user feedback data so members can gain access to this global knowledge bank and make informed purchasing decisions.

The company looks to be using AI algorithms to ensure that the data entered meets a certain standard and falls within regulatory guidelines.

The information gathered will be put into blockchain to ensure the safety and integrity of this sensitive medical data. The most exciting part from a stock promotion perspective might be the initial coin offering, or ICO. The company may be able to raise substantial amount of cash from this and we would expect this ICO to be popular because it promotes a niche cause in "normalizing" a marijuana industry that is just on the cusp of gaining mainstream acceptance and global legality, but prior to that was very fragmented and seedy. A large problem with medical marijuana has been its inconsistency with quality and effectiveness. The Citizen Green platform looks like it could be a way to solve that issue. The ICO will also fund a token loyalty program on the app. Users will get tokens for participating on the Citizen Green platform which can be redeemed for products. This ensures continued participation by members and the addition of timely information to the data bank.

This all sounds fine and dandy, but what would stop a larger company with more resources from doing the exact same and surpassing GCAC's Citizen Green? The company outlined what it believes is its market advantages in the CannaInvestor feature.


Basically GCAC believes that it has such a head start with the data, it will be difficult for another company to catch up. Even if the competitor has a more functional app. Think of it in terms of this example. Even if a company came out with vastly superior phones to iPhone, the iOS ecosystem is what drives brand loyalty to Apple. If Citizen Green is the storage of the best information out there, who cares about the functionality of the app, it's the data that people care more about.

The promises of CEO Bradley Moore haven't stopped with the CannaInvestor feature or individual talks with investors. The investor presentation has him taking it up a notch with key milestones and revenue projections over the next 18 months.



In only six months, GCAC is forecasting 650,000 users on Citizen Green apps. By the end of 2018, GCAC is forecasting a $1 million per month revenue run rate, increasing to $1.4 million per month by May 2019 and quickly growing. If GCAC can achieve this goal, revenue will be around $6 million for 2018 and approaching $20 million in 2019. With these types of numbers, it's clear that the company would be valued at much higher than an $8 million market cap. We are assuming these numbers are in Canadian dollars since that is GCAC's home base.

Buying in now assumes the risk of requiring GCAC's successful execution in order to benefit from the extremely high upside. GCAC is assuming a $1.00 ARPU per month for an app that is free to the user. GCAC's presentation mentioned "revenue and user growth achievable from numerous sources" and that there will be multiple revenue/fee streams from dispensaries, pharmacies and online retailers. GCAC did not make the revenue drivers very clear beyond this and we suggest that the company should do so in future investor communications. However, we can take a reasonable guess at a few of them:

1. Data generated on Citizen Green can be accessed by the dispensaries through a fee structure, possibly by location, so they can better manage their inventory.
2. Online retailers pay for advertising/listing on Citizen Green in relevant locations. Like a Yellow Pages for medical marijuana, the user turns to the appropriate "page" for their ailment and the retailers who sell the strain meant for that ailment show up.
3. Collecting a fee from the digital rewards token program.
4. Drug companies pay for the anecdotal medical data generated on Citizen Green for research and development purposes.
5. Generate enough value on Citizen Green that a large player in the medical marijuana industry buys the company out. This would be a long term scenario after several years of operations so don't expect a buyout overnight.

Don't forget to read the feature in the CannaInvestor Magazine and the investor presentation for more information on Global Cannabis Apps, OTC symbol FUAPF or APP in Canada.

Burcon: Tax Loss Turnaround Stock Like GLBR With Potential Cannabis Deal At Play

As every year ends, stocks that have done poorly get sold down even more as investors sell their losers in time to be eligible for a tax loss credit against their winners. These stocks tend to reverse from their oversold condition in January. What we have noticed is a trend that certain poor performers spike before year end now as more and more people have caught onto the trend and want in on the trading spike.

One great example of this past week was Global Brokerage, Inc. (GLBR). On November 13th a restructuring deal was struck that included the intention for the company to "initiate the steps to deregister its common stock under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934". Naturally, the stock went on a steep decline from $1.31 that day to $0.25 on December 6th. From that point on, the stock spiked as high as $1.44 in two days, higher than the November 13th close before the intent to deregister the stock was announced. After hours on December 8th, the stock tanked from $1.12 close to $0.76 upon further confirmation that GLBR plans to deregister the common stock with the last day of trading being December 28th. We expect GLBR to drop significantly on Monday after this news, but there are other trading opportunities out there that don't have plans to de-list. One such opportunity is Burcon Nutrascience Corporation (BUR).

Burcon has dropped from $2.00 at the start of the year to as low as $0.40 as the company's cash balance is getting low. It looks like it will need to finance in Q1 2018, but BUR is still in way better shape than GLBR which saw a dead cat bounce of over 400% from its low in two days. BUR's trading on Friday had an extremely similar pattern to GLBR on Thursday which spiked in the morning, faded, and then had a big recovery at the end of the day. BUR closed up 50% to $0.72, the same price that GLBR closed at on Thursday. BUR looks like a prime target to continue its dead cat bounce on Monday.

But there is also a chance that this wasn't a dead cat bounce, but a move based on news to come. Burcon is a food science company. Its most intriguing application is to hemp, which has lower concentrations of THC and higher concentrations of cannabidiol (CBD). This is a note in the company's latest financial statements:









"During the quarter, Burcon continued work to further the development of a new plant-based protein process, as well as limited research work on protein extraction from various plant sources to explore potential new commercial and patenting opportunities. Burcon’s extraction and purification technologies are versatile and may be adapted to process a range of oilseed and non-oilseed meals to produce specialty proteins, such as flax and hemp. The demand for plant-based proteins continues to grow and Burcon believes there may be niche market opportunities for its specialty protein ingredients. Burcon intends to explore these opportunities in the near future."

For those who have followed our picks recently, we have had some very good success picking stocks trading in Canada that are in the Cannabis realm without being growers themselves. In July we picked Isodiol International (LAGBF) (ISOL.CN) in our articles Isodiol: 10x Undervalued Cannabis Stock Inks Deals With Canopy and Isodiol: A Profitable Cannabis Company. ISOL has moved up nearly ten times since then, hitting a high of $2.14 in Canada from $0.23. In November we picked Global Cannabis Applications Corp. (FUAPF) (APP.CN) in our article A Cannabis and Blockchain Story. That stock has more than doubled in a month and we think it has a lot more room to go. An update on GCAC, we see that the CannaLife app is up to 100-500 installs on the Google Play store. This has grown from 10-50 from when we last checked at the end of November. Slow and steady increase in users for now, but we expect a huge increase in the user growth early in 2018.

Another very successful stock on the fringes of the weed world has been Radient Technologies (RDDTF) (RTI.V). Like Burcon - which also trades in Canada under the symbol BU - Radient is a food and plant extraction technology company that has signed a joint venture with Aurora Cannabis (ACBFF) (ACB.TO), both of which think the expansion into the hemp market will be lucrative:

"Radient also commends the positive developments under the Proposals for the expansion of hemp production and the extraction of CBD from hemp, for which the high-throughput capability of Radient's platform is a strong fit. With its cornerstone customer and partner, Aurora Cannabis Inc. (TSX:ACB) ("Aurora"), and Aurora's investment in Hempco Food and Fiber, Radient's accelerated entry into this valuable market segment is possible."

We think that BU will continue to run hard on Monday, similar to what GLBR did on Friday. But we also cannot discount that this company will develop technology applicable to the cannabis industry and have a more sustained push like Radient. BUR has developed valuable plant-based protein extraction technologies but had failed to capitalize on them so far outside of a licensing agreement with Archer Daniels Midland Company. It's about time that BUR jump on the cannabis bandwagon and find a producer that wants to improve its process and differentiate its product like what Aurora has done by teaming up with Radient. We don't know for sure if this will happen with Burcon, it is just a guess. But what we do know is that this company needs something to boost its business, and Friday's spike is indicative of a sudden increase in interest in the stock.

A Cannabis and Blockchain Story II: Turning a Concept into Reality

We generally don't pick OTC stocks, but we have made two exceptions to get into the Canadian weed space and both of those have worked out very well so far. In July we picked Isodiol International (LAGBF) (ISOL.CN) in our articles Isodiol: 10x Undervalued Cannabis Stock Inks Deals With Canopy and Isodiol: A Profitable Cannabis Company. More recently we picked Global Cannabis Applications Corp. (FUAPF) (APP.CN) in our article A Cannabis and Blockchain Story. The company refers to itself as GCAC and we'll do the same.

Isodiol isn't the typical OTC stock. It has plenty of revenue and even profits to its name. The problem it had was in order to get to that point it had to dilute the stock quite substantially. Now that it looks like it has blown through the cheap paper, the sky is the limit. ISOL has already tripled from our original recommendation of $0.23 CAD, but funny enough is still several times undervalued compared to the rest of the weed industry because larger industry players like Canopy Growth Corporation (TWMJF) (WEED.TO) and Aurora Cannabis Inc. (ACBFF) (ACB.TO) have ran a lot too. Readers can still make a lot of money holding ISOL, even after a triple. Maybe sell a third of your ISOL position to lock in profits on your original investment and ride the rest to millions if you want. We think GCAC is an even better play right now because while it has ran a bit in the couple of weeks since we recommended it, it is still pretty low in price and presents a very unique business opportunity in the cannabis sector.

We get asked if we get paid for our reports like so many other writers on these types of OTC stocks do. We do not. Our only payment is on the Adsense revenue and the commission made on the services/e-books listed on the bottom of this page. For those writers who get paid to write reports, think about why they are doing that. Maybe their stock picks are bad and their only source of income is getting paid to write those reports? We made close to a six-digit figure on ISOL and plan to do the same on GCAC. Our readers probably made millions combined if they held onto ISOL since July. We don't need the pathetic $5,000 or whatever it is to write a report like this for an "awareness campaign". We rather the company keep that money and use it to develop the business so we can all make money.

If you are reading our reports for the first time and have missed out on ISOL and the rest of the explosive weed industry, GCAC may be a second chance for you to score a big gain. During the decade-long gold bull market we saw earlier this century, what made investors more money? Barrick Gold? Or Caterpillar? Here's a stock price comparison of ABX versus CAT since 2001 when gold began its decade-long bull run in case the point we are trying to make isn't clear:



ABX has decreased 12% since 2001 and CAT has increased 421% during that time. Even when gold was hot, ABX and CAT performed about the same then really split off once gold pulled back from $1,800 an ounce. This doesn't even consider the dividend yield. CAT's yield is 2.3% and ABX is only 0.9%. Long-term CAT investors have made in excess of five times their money (a $3 dividend on a 2001 CAT cost basis of $30 is a 10% annual yield) and ABX investors have struggled to get a return that beats a t-bill.

Why is this? Other than poor management decisions at ABX, gold is a commodity product and there are a lot of companies out there trying to look for it or dig it out of the ground. However, there are only a handful of companies out there that make the equipment to dig mineral resources out of the ground. They have been the ones to benefit the most from any gold rush. Cannabis is a commodity product and there are many growers out there. But there are only a handful of companies looking to service the industry in other ways. One could argue that cannabis isn't traded like gold is and the weed companies would not be susceptible to dips in its price. But how long will that last? Cannabis is an agricultural product just like wheat, corn or beef so it could eventually trade on futures markets.

It describes itself as the "Only technology driven cannabis tech company to offer an end-to-end data aggregation and user delivery solution". What does all that mean?

What GCAC has is a concept that is turning into a reality.

GCAC's CEO has made promises to get things rolling in Q4 and has so far delivered. This past week the company updated its website and created a new investor presentation. The bigger accomplishment came from the listing of the CannaLife app on the Google Play store. The app has been listed since November 15 and has gotten a total of 10-50 installs. This isn't a lot but GCAC has an actionable plan to acquire a lot of users quickly. The CannaLife app was made by GCAC's subsidiary, Foro Technologies. Foro Technologies is also the developer of Foro Student Marketplace, an app where university students can buy and sell goods with fellow students on campus. The app has 50,000-100,000 installs and a reasonably good 4.2 rating. About one-quarter of young people are cannabis users, so GCAC could use Foro as leverage to quickly grow CannaLife's user base to about 25,000. Foro is also available in the Apple Store, though there is no indication as to when CannaLife will be available for iOS. In the investor presentation, GCAC claims that it has over 300,000 subscribers who fit the Citizen Green target demographic.

The risk of the minimal balance sheet came into play this week. GCAC announced a financing at $0.10 to raise a total of $230,000. This killed the momentum of the stock as APP was headed over $0.20 and instead ended the week at $0.15. The financing looks like it was given to strategic investors, that's why the steep discount. The drop in the stock price may present a buying opportunity for anyone who wants to get in now. If the news on Citizen Green keeps coming, it may be the final buying opportunity an investor may have. GCAC currently trades at a market cap of CAD $8 million under its Canadian symbol APP. GCAC had a feature in the CannaInvestor Magazine for October which goes into great detail of its business plan as well as gives it legitimacy having been featured in a cannabis industry magazine. The CannaInvestor article starts off with the company mission statement:

The article then goes on to talk about the company's Citizen Green platform, which GCAC proposes will be the only one in the world the can offer an end-to-end data aggregation and user delivery system for the cannabis industry. It can be broken down into four parts:

This platform starts with the newly released CannaLife, a social media app that users can use to rate their experiences with various forms of medical cannabis. It seeks to develop a community environment which might not be possible on more mainstream social media platforms where cannabis is considered controversial.

Prescriptii also allows for the rating of cannabis products but sounds more like a Yelp type of business rather than an actual community like CannaLife. GCAC is looking to roll out Prescriptii in North America before the end of the year and internationally shortly after that. It looks like both CannaLife and Prescriptii will be used to aggregate user feedback data so members can gain access to this global knowledge bank and make informed purchasing decisions.

The company looks to be using AI algorithms to ensure that the data entered meets a certain standard and falls within regulatory guidelines.

The information gathered will be put into blockchain to ensure the safety and integrity of this sensitive medical data. The most exciting part from a stock promotion perspective might be the initial coin offering, or ICO. The company may be able to raise substantial amount of cash from this and we would expect this ICO to be popular because it promotes a niche cause in "normalizing" a marijuana industry that is just on the cusp of gaining mainstream acceptance and global legality, but prior to that was very fragmented and seedy. A large problem with medical marijuana has been its inconsistency with quality and effectiveness. The Citizen Green platform looks like it could be a way to solve that issue. The ICO will also fund a token loyalty program on the app. Users will get tokens for participating on the Citizen Green platform which can be redeemed for products. This ensures continued participation by members and the addition of timely information to the data bank.

This all sounds fine and dandy, but what would stop a larger company with more resources from doing the exact same and surpassing GCAC's Citizen Green? The company outlined what it believes is its market advantages in the CannaInvestor feature.


Basically GCAC believes that it has such a head start with the data, it will be difficult for another company to catch up. Even if the competitor has a more functional app. Think of it in terms of this example. Even if a company came out with vastly superior phones to iPhone, the iOS ecosystem is what drives brand loyalty to Apple. If Citizen Green is the storage of the best information out there, who cares about the functionality of the app, it's the data that people care more about.

The promises of CEO Bradley Moore haven't stopped with the CannaInvestor feature or individual talks with investors. The investor presentation has him taking it up a notch with key milestones and revenue projections over the next 18 months.



In only six months, GCAC is forecasting 650,000 users on Citizen Green apps. By the end of 2018, GCAC is forecasting a $1 million per month revenue run rate, increasing to $1.4 million per month by May 2019 and quickly growing. If GCAC can achieve this goal, revenue will be around $6 million for 2018 and approaching $20 million in 2019. With these types of numbers, it's clear that the company would be valued at much higher than an $8 million market cap. We are assuming these numbers are in Canadian dollars since that is GCAC's home base.

Buying in now assumes the risk of requiring GCAC's successful execution in order to benefit from the extremely high upside. GCAC is assuming a $1.00 ARPU per month for an app that is free to the user. GCAC's presentation mentioned "revenue and user growth achievable from numerous sources" and that there will be multiple revenue/fee streams from dispensaries, pharmacies and online retailers. GCAC did not make the revenue drivers very clear beyond this and we suggest that the company should do so in future investor communications. However, we can take a reasonable guess at a few of them:

1. Data generated on Citizen Green can be accessed by the dispensaries through a fee structure, possibly by location, so they can better manage their inventory.
2. Online retailers pay for advertising/listing on Citizen Green in relevant locations. Like a Yellow Pages for medical marijuana, the user turns to the appropriate "page" for their ailment and the retailers who sell the strain meant for that ailment show up.
3. Collecting a fee from the digital rewards token program.
4. Drug companies pay for the anecdotal medical data generated on Citizen Green for research and development purposes.
5. Generate enough value on Citizen Green that a large player in the medical marijuana industry buys the company out. This would be a long term scenario after several years of operations so don't expect a buyout overnight.

Carver Bancorp: The Next Huge Low Float Runner?

On Thursday afternoon, we put out an alert on Carver Bancorp Inc. (CARV). It ended the day at $5.05, up 150% and about flat to when we recommended it. However, we have held overnight because we believe there is a strong chance that it can continue a huge run into its second day of hot trading like what we saw with Diana Containerships Inc. (DCIX) on November 3 through 7 and CHF Solutions, Inc. (CHFS) Wednesday and Thursday. At a minimum, the pattern suggests that CARV could challenge Thursday's high of $7.95. Other high-flying low-float stocks that ran a lot over the past couple of days include China Advanced Construction Materials Group, Inc. (CADC), SemiLEDs Corporation (LEDS), OptimumBank Holdings, Inc. (OPHC), Meridian Waste Solutions, Inc. (MRDN) and Clean Diesel Technologies, Inc. (CDTI).

This is a view of the ownership structure of the three largest gainers on Thursday, CADC, OPHC and CARV:






CARV has 3.75 million shares outstanding which is more than CADC and OPHC. But its insider and institutional ownership is far higher than the other two. This not only gives credence to it being a more legitimate company because shares are held close as opposed to being spread among retail traders, it also really reduces the float. CARV has a float of just 1.37 million shares which is actually less than CADC's float of 1.46 million shares. But the most striking stat is the volume. CADC rose 265% on 21.6 million volume. OPHC rose 234% on 3 million volume. CARV rose 150% on only 500K volume. Imagine if CARV has millions of volume traded in a day.

Look at the price history of OPHC:




















On November 9, OPHC experienced a temporary 100% move on 227K volume. Like a warning tremor before the full blown explosion that took place on Thursday. CARV's move on Thursday looks more like that tremor and the big day could be still to come.

With CARV being around $5.00 it trades at market cap of under $19 million. Look at the last SEC filing. The 10-Q for the quarter ended June 30, 2017 was filed November 14. The company has been filing financials late, but at least they are finally getting filed. This could be another reason why the stock is going up since investors are happy that is this happening. The company had a net loss of $641,000. But that is a drop in the bucket compared to the balance sheet:



The assets are cash, investments and mortgages which should be relatively liquid. As long as the housing market doesn't collapse overnight like in the mid-2000's this is not an issue. The company has $47 million in total equity, more than double its market cap. There is preferred stock which complicates things but overall as a business, CARV is in way better shape than usual low float stocks which always have to dilute their shares. So CARV looks like a strong bet to continue its run. With a $19 million market cap you're not going to get a perfect company. But CARV's financials are at least decent. Usually at such a low market cap you can assume a large burn rate and maybe negative equity or some other major problem.

Trade Alert: CARV

We are putting out a trade alert on Carver Bancorp Inc. (CARV) which is trading at around $5 and has moved up around 150% along with many other high flying low-float stocks like CHFS, CADC, LEDS and OPHC today.

CARV has 3.7 million shares outstanding and at around $5.00 it trades at market cap of under $19 million. Look at the last SEC filing. The 10-Q for for the quarter ended June 30, 2017 was filed November 14. The company had a net loss of $641,000. But that pales in comparison to the balance sheet:



The assets are financial and mortgage ones which should be relatively liquid. As long as the housing market doesn't collapse overnight like in the mid-2000's this is not an issue. The company has $47 million in total equity, more than double the market cap. There is preferred stock which complicates things. But this looks like a pick that could continue its run and is in better shape financially than comparable high flying stocks. CARV hit a high of $7.95 today. Let's see if it retests that. It has moved on very small volume so it has the potential to really rocket if buying comes in.
