Securities Attorney Ambulance Chasers are at it again…..

Lately there have been multiple email campaigns by the esteemed Law firms of Lifshitz Law Firm PLC, Kehoe Law Firm, Barr Law Group and others launching smear campaigns against public companies in the guise of launching investigations, investigating potential Securities claims etc etc and perhaps there will be class action lawsuits filed.

Part of this is to solicit investors who have been harmed, to participate in a class action suit against the company. It only tales as few as 12 claimants to be able to file a “class action suit” in some states. Well by definition, you have been damaged because the smear campaign has successfully tanked the stock. Athira (ATHA) for example was trading in the $20 range and is now $10 ish.

Reminds me of the same sort of tactics used 20 years ago designed to create a short opportunity in the stock and after the smoke cleared found that people associated with the law firms had benefited substantially from these smear campaigns. 

 In the end many were disbarred, but not until long after they had successfully destroyed the companies involved.

If you’re an officer in one of these companies my suggestion is to immediately hire qualified counsel and bring a suit for slander and include PCLRA abuse as part of it.

If you’re a shareholder you have probably already had a big loss in the position. Not much point in bailing out now and maybe you have a cause of action against Lifshitz et al.

New Sonar Survey Discovers Large Unsalvaged Sections of SB Pulaski, 1838

Jacksonville, FL, June 23, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — via NewMediaWire — Project partners Blue Water Ventures, Inc. (OTCPK: BWVI), Endurance Exploration Group, Inc. (OTCPK:EXPL), and Marex International, Inc. are pleased to announce the start of the 2021 Recovery season on the SB Pulaski-1838.

The M/V Blue Water Rose was deployed off the North Carolina coast in early June with specialized high resolution side-scan sonar equipment and tasked with conducting an intense, high resolution sonar imaging survey of the areas near the project’s most recently salvaged site of the SB Pulaski. The mission, led by project managers Mark Martin and Rodney Grambo, has now located and inspected several dozen additional debris fields believed associated with the SB Pulaski sinking. The debris, which includes large sections of the ship’s machinery and contents, is scattered along a drift-line of several miles. Most importantly, a new section of the wreck, believed to be the elusive stern section which has evaded us for several years, is now believed to have been located. This section includes what appears to be an approximately one-hundred-foot section of the ship’s wooden keel, and a very large concentration of shipwreck artifacts and material. The SB Pulaski’s stern section sank approximately one hour after the ship’s boilers exploded causing the ship to break into two pieces, spilling her machinery and contents while the two ship’s sections continued to float until sinking.

Shift In Inverter Model Should Yield Higher Profits Starting In 2023

H1:21 Results Driven By Jewelry & The Ideenion Closing.  AFMG reported first half Revenue of HK$241.1 million, beating our estimate due to much higher legacy Jewelry sales.  Two IEs were delivered during the period, as expected, however Outsourced Engineering Revenue was weaker due to COVID-related delays and the Jinpeng business being booked through Ideenion, which only had roughly one month included in the period.  Operating expenses were higher than expected, at HK$267.6 million, due primarily to HK$106.8 million in non-cash stock-based charges.  Losses from JVs and Associates totaled HK$22.9 million.  Net Loss for the period was HK$201.8 million.

Operations & Model Update.  We made a number of significant changes to our model.  We continued to spread out deliveries of the initial IE deliveries and pushed out EVO deliveries by six months, but added in 10 additional IE Roadster units to be delivered in the next 18 months.  We also adjusted the Inverter from a license model to a product sale model, which had a significant impact on the model.  Switching from a license model to an OEM model, including partnering with a European motor manufacturer for the electric motor, will push out Revenue for this product and reduce the gross margin.  However, the Revenue and Net Margin from this product should be higher as compared to what the license model would have produced.  We expect there will be immediate demand from OEMs to test the Inverter/Electric Motor later this year.  We also made reductions to the Jinpeng JV due to COVID-related delays.  The timing of EVO deliveries, Jinpeng sales growing, and commercial orders for the Inverter set up 2023 to be a big year for AFMG, and all of this still excludes the Shanghai JV, which could potentially deliver more than 1,000 Apollo-branded EVs in 2023; we will continue to hold off adding this to our model until greater detail is provided on the structure and plan for the proposed JV.

ValuEngine Weekly Report

By: Herb Blank

Drill, Baby, Drill? Oil ETFs

For each blog article, I scan through relevant groups of ETFs that relate to possible investment strategies.  Three ETFs from iShares by BlackRock stood out to me this week: IEO, IEZ, IYE.  All have ValuEngine’s strongest rating of 5 checks and all have fared very well in price performance during the past 6 months since the market’s rotation away from growth and toward value, a theme we have discussed in several blog posts over the past couple of months.  I was aware of the rotation but unaware that these oil-industry stocks were carried so far by it so quickly. 

  • IEO is the iShares US Oil & Gas Exploration & Production ETF.  Top five holdings include: Conoco Phillips; EOG; Phillips 66; Marathon Petroleum; Hess Corp.
  • IEZ is the iShares US Oil Equipment & Services ETF; Top five holdings include: Schlumberger; Halliburton; ChampionX; Baker Hughes; Helmerich & Payne
  • IYE is the iShares US Energy ETF; Top five holdings include: Exxon Mobil; Chevron; Conoco Phillips; EOG; Schlumberger
