Markets still say the economy is coming back big time as NASDAQ and S & P 500 set new record highs.

Technology stocks leading the way and a drop in new unemployment filings add to the good news.

“The value trade is still intact. It got overcrowded, it got over-loved … but when we look at the fundamental drivers behind that trade, they’re still intact,” Keith Lerner, Portfolio & Market Strategist at Truist Advisory Services, told Yahoo Finance.

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.

Deal Announced With Shanghai Jinqiao To Launch Apollo EV Prototype Later This Year

 Shanghai Jinqiao EV Deal Announced.  On March 30, AFMG announced it signed an agreement with Shanghai Jinqiao [SS: 600639 / 900911] to develop and manufacture EV sports cars, luxury vehicles and SUVs with the “Apollo” brand name in the Development Zone in Pudong, Shanghai.  AFMG intends to create a JV with a local partner and will set up a R&D center, regional headquarters and production lines in the Development Zone.  Jinqiao will provide land for the plant and work with the government to secure capital for the project, similar to the deal Tesla [Nasdaq: TSLA] received.  Management believes the location is ideally suited from a supply chain standpoint, with numerous auto-related companies in the Development Zone.  We believe this arrangement is likely the result of AFMG’s strong showing at CIIE in November.  The prototype vehicle, which will be designed by Ideenion and incorporate solid state batteries, 800V SiC dual inverters and 3D printed parts, will launch later this year, with commercial production expected in 2023.  Should AFMG find a solid partner, this deal could create unique a domestic China EV brand that showcases the Company’s technology and design expertise.  Additionally, it could completely transform AFMG’s financials and create a substantial increase in the Company’s stock price given the valuations of other EV companies.

Legacy Property Sold.  On March 30, AFMG announced it agreed to sell its legacy commercial property in Shenyang to an unrelated buyer for HK$200,000,000, which carried a NAV of HK$199,063,000.  Legacy asset divestitures have been expected for some time and this marks another step towards exiting old business lines as generating cash to be put into the mobility business.

EV Power Update.  On February 25, the Company announced that EV Power accepted an equity investment from a HK-listed telecom company.  The size of the investment and the valuation were not disclosed.  The investment drops AFMG’s ownership in EV Power from 38.08% to 32.66%.  By way of comparison, EV Power and Blink Charging [Nasdaq: BLNK] each have roughly 23,000 charging units.  Blink has a market cap of US$1.80 billion, which when placing equal value to the charging units, would make AFMG’s equity position worth roughly HK$4.6 billion, or slightly more than 860’s entire market cap.

Model Update.  Despite the magnitude of the announcements, we made few changes to our model.  We will hold off on adding any impact on the Apollo EV announcement until a JV partner is announced and there is a better idea of how that will be structured and funded.

ValuEngine Weekly Report

By: Herb Blank

Defensive Sector ETFs for Turbulent Times
 This week’s featured US equity ETFs, all focused on the US Consumer Staples Sector, are projected to outperform the market going forward. The similarities with last week’s blog end there.  These all get a more modest 4 (buy) recommendation.  Risk versus safety differentiate the last blog from this one.

My last blog entry profiled ETF opportunities in the Biotech subindustry group. They were all listed as top 5 rated ETFs from ValuEngine, following recent pullbacks.  All had been characterized by above-average market volatility and above-average returns during the past 10 years.  All had very different construction and maintenance methodologies. This week the chosen ETFs are all from the US Consumer Staples Sector.
