What To Focus On - Part Two

My blog of November 27th was entitled "What to Focus On". Please read it. This week we are feeling a bit of a hangover. Last's weeks triple witching event is over. Stocks that were forced to contract in price to sqeeze out spectatate positions on them are now free to resume there old trading patterns. This Monday morning at 10:20 a.m. the Djia is up 301 points. There are also losers. So now what? Mark on your calendar exactly three months down the road how the markets traded on the first morning after one of these triple witching events and use this same logic to catch the upside on the next "hangeover" day like this. How do you pick the winners? Find a few stocks that have enjoyed a recent upswing and play them to pop on the first trading session after one of these events. This blog is just an observation.

What Happens on the Day After a 100 for 1 Reverse Split. Are Shareholders In A Better Position? SugarBud (Symbol SUGR)

Management was sleeping at the switch today to allow their share price to drop 24% on a volume of only 30,000 shares on a day just after a 100 to 1 reverse split. With somewhere over five million shares left outstanding a drop of 24% wipes out about one million dollars in shareholder value. Lets add to this storey the following information. I also note that there was some good news. Yet then again, how good really was this news?
So now what? Check out Sedar. Look at how SugarBud is filled to the rafters with inventory that is not going anywhere and look at how their operating expenses are double what their gross sales are. You can't run a business that way. In a recent blog I noted how "Eve and Company" (Symbol EVE.V) near London Ontario Canada also has inventory problems. There is nothing special about growing weed. Anyone can do it. It's an industry of the survival of the fittest. When I looked at the Mendocannabis.ca website I came across "Nextleaf Solutions" (symbol OILS). They also supply product to Medicibis and they recently raised over three million dollars in a new issue. Here now is more about it. Do your own homework. The marijuana space is a dangerous sector of the market to be in right now.

*** A final note on the root of this problem. Prices derived from growing the product are falling. To learn about an interesting company who is busy trying to get ahead in this space go the the Sedar website and read the news releases on Sundial. They never seem to stop in trying to reinvent themselves and their daily trading volumes are impressive.
+++++++ A Feb 28th update. If this was to happen and this happens and this happens... SugarBud now has a new friend.
*A 2022 update. SugarBud did not survive.
