Breaking News

S&P 500 this week troughed 12% below its peak before rallying 4%.

Putin has clearly lost his mind and this could very well lead to his ouster. The penalties Russian State and the unfortunate citizens living there will be huge.

The bad news is that just like so many times in the past when seemingly, all was more or less running well economically along comes some very unexpected event that throws the whole system into chaos and no one likes uncertainty- especially institutional money.

Perhaps our politicians will wake up and take whatever steps necessary to gain back energy independence.

How many times have we had to deal with an enemy we made rich buying oil from them?

Yahoo Finance 2-18

Corporate America is launching two of its own birds into Putin’s backyard for his invasion into Ukraine. Not airplanes, but one finger from each hand.  ‌ Here are the first round of actions from a host of multinational companies that began to trickle in over the weekend: ‌ Transport giants FedEx and UPS have suspended shipments into Russia.BP is divesting its 19.75% stake in Russian controlled oil company Rosneft. The move will come with a hefty $25 billion charge. BP has done business in Russia for three decades.Intel and AMD have reportedly suspended chip shipments into Russia. A spokesperson for AMD was unable to comment to Yahoo Finance on the report. A spokesperson for Intel didn’t immediately return Yahoo Finance’s request for comment. ‌ Expect more penalizing announcements from global companies in the week ahead, which no doubt will have a major impact on the Russian economy and way of life for its citizens.

1-17-2022 Apollo Future Mobility Group (HK:860)
Greenridge Global Research provides Update

Changes to Board & Management Team.  On Thursday, AFMG announced changes to the management team and Board, highlighted by the addition of Freeman Hui Shen as Co-Chairman of the Board.  Mr. Shen is the founder, Chairman and CEO of WM Motor Group, a Chinese-based EV manufacturer, and largest shareholder of AFMG.  Mr. Shen will also serve as Chair of the Nomination Committee and as a member of the Investment Committee of the Board.  Joseph Lee was appointed as an Executive Director, Vice Chairman of the Board, and a member of the Investment Committee and Corporate Governance Committee.  Mr. Lee brings over 15 years of private equity and investment banking experience to AFMG, will earn HK$200,000 per month in salary, and was granted 40,000,000 ten-year options exercisable at HK$0.44.  Eric Ho will no longer serve as Chair of the Nomination Committee and will now serve as Co-Chairman instead of Chairman.  With the reduction in shareholding and entrance of WM Motors, it is unclear how involved Mr. Ho will be going forward. 

H2:21 Results.  AFMG reported H2:21 Revenue of HK$287.5 million, well ahead of our estimate due to the higher than expected contribution from the legacy Jewellry business.  The Auto business was lower than we expected, at HK$60.6 million, due to a delay in deliveries of two IE vehicles.  As the Company has noted, the ESO business continues to build and it expanded last year to accommodate that growth.  Operating expenses were roughly in line with our expectations.   Non-operating expenses and losses in the period were mostly related to legacy assets or the contingent accounting for acquisitions.  Net Loss for the period was HK$147.8 million, or HK$1.71 per diluted share. 

Model Update.  We shifted the two delayed IE deliveries into fiscal 2022 and added in the 125,000,000 ten-year stock option grant, exercisable at HK$0.445 into our model.  We left everything else relatively unchanged as AFMG moves towards more rapid growth on multiple fronts.

Maintaining Rating & Target.  The addition of Mr. Shen as Co-Chairman is a logical step to better align WM Motors and AFMG.  We continue to believe the Company is significantly undervalued based on the sum of its parts, and expect that discount to fair value to decrease as its investment holdings move towards being publicly listed.  We remain optimistic on AFMG’s potential and are reiterating our Buy rating and HK$1.50 target price on Apollo Future Mobility Group.  Our target price is based on a P/E multiple of 25 times our fiscal 2023 Diluted EPS estimate of HK$5.75 cents, which falls just before the launch of the Apollo EVision S.

Dawson James issues Research Update

Raising Estimates and Price Target to $13.00

 SRAX announced full year and Q1 revenue guidance far above our and consensus estimates. We are raising our estimates and price target, from $11.50 to $13.00 to reflect continued strong growth in the Sequire platform.

 We are raising our estimates for 2022 and our price target after the company announced revenue guidance for Q1 and the year far ahead of our and consensus estimates. For 2022 we are now projecting revenue of $45.5 million, at the low-end of company guidance of $46 to $48 million and an increase from our prior estimate of $38.4 million.

We estimate there were 250 Sequire customers at year-end 2021 and have modeled 415 by the end of 2022, an increase of 165, an acceleration from the 125 added in 2021. Average revenue per subscriber, per month, in 2021 was over $11,000. We have assumed this declines slightly, to $10,750 per month in 2022.

Trickle Research issues Research Update

24 Month Price Target to $7.50

On 08/16/21, SRAX reported 2Q-F21 results, and those results and associated comments included a handful of interesting data points. We will try to briefly recap the most cogent of those.

First to recap, in some of our prior research we have tried to provide some pro forma glimpses of SRAX’s operations without the consolidation of BigToken. Recall, SRAX spun their BigToken division into a separate public company; Force Protection Video Equipment Corp. (OTC: FPVD) dba: BigToken. In short, because of their relative (majority) ownership of FPVD, SRAX is required to continue consolidating those results. Unfortunately, in our opinion, that consolidation continues to “muddy the water” and impedes the evaluation of SRAX in the context of its core Sequire business. Our hope is that they/BigToken will be able to execute an arrangement that will allow SRAX to report results that are not consolidated with those of FPVD.

The above noted, SRAX’s Sequire platform continues to gather momentum, so we will try to focus on that notion.

ValuEngine Weekly Report

Is It Time for Actively Managed Value ETFs?

There is no sugarcoating it.  January was a lousy month for the market.  Many pundits are certain that this is the beginning of a yearlong downturn. Other experts are calling this a dip and a buying opportunity.  Our models at ValuEngine are mixed with a six-month forecast on S&P 500 ETFs of +2.6% but a one-year forecast of -2.3%.  The way we look at it, there’s no need to dump stocks now as you can lose a lot by being out of the market when it rises. 

In the type of choppy market that may lie ahead and given the steep price-return decline of close to -7% in S&P 500 ETFs in January, it might be time to move some money from market-cap weighted index funds into some actively managed value-and-quality strategies geared to hold up better in volatile markets.
