Knock Knock $ANY.V One Home? (SPHERE 3D CORPORATION)

A contact of mine from twitter is the only reason I came across this stock, nowhere else had I seen anyone mention it, and it didn’t come up on my radar at all (not that I was searching too hard). Sphere 3D Corp is a technology development company focused on establishing its patent pending emulation and virtualization technology. The CEO is Peter Tassiopoulos. And it has a current Market Cap: 219.86m.
The first thing I did was pull up the chart of ANY.V and said to myself, I need to be prepared to bet against this company. It is my opinion that any company who is listed on the TSX Venture and is trading above $1.00 per share needs to be looked at with the potential of short selling / betting against the stock. As you can see ANY.V has a 52wk range of $0.44 to $9.74, and closed today at $9.39 per share.
ANY-VN-ALL-TIME-DATA
Read this article published today by thestreetsweeper.org, leaving you with the impression that things will end badly for ANY.V. We don’t know the exact day when the stock will collapse, but when it does, it will quite likely shed at least 50% of it’s share price within a 1-3 day period (whenever that time might be).

This stock has a dual listing on the US markets as well. The ticker is SPIHF and it trades on the OTC/PINKsheet market. Notice the short sale amount has nearly doubled from Apr 30, 2014 to May 15, 2014.
SPIHF-short-sales-data
I like to see what type of insider transactions are present just to get a quick glance. As you can see, Sheldon Inwentash has been a very active buyer of shares in the public market… interesting.

This stock is very hard to borrow, but I have found one broker that will allow one to short sell at will. 
IT IS NOT A MATTER OF IF IT WILL COLLAPSE, IT IS JUST A MATTER OF WHEN!

$MCP more bearish option activity

What are your thoughts going into $MCP earnings, is the risk to the downside or the upside? @fedtrans @fioritojarrad @mktmitch @stockguy22  1:11 PM – 5 May 2014

twitter-MCP-going-into-earnings-question

 

 

$MCP May 09 2014 $4.50 strike $Put has 5889 volume (Initiated by buyers) compared to 2276 Open interest. Going into earnings May 07 AMC.  1:31 PM – 6 May 2014

– The above tweet implied bearish sentiment going into the earnings announcement the next day (May 07). Well, they definitely picked the right side of the trade.  As seen in the chart below, they purchased these contracts around $0.18 and today this contract hit a high of $0.90. It doesn’t look like they are closing their positions though, or at least not yet.

MCP-May-09-4_5dollar-put

 

Well the put buying hasn’t let up yet. As noted by CBOE’s tweet:

 Active puts @ CBOE; $TSLA 5/9/14 180 $VXX Sept 33 $SUNE Jan 12 $TSLA 5/9/14 180 $MCP 1/15/16 4
I decided to go check out how these positions were initiated to try and determine if it was buyers or sellers that initiated the position, this gives us their sentiment on the stock, and in this case, it’s bearish by the look of it.

What the $GFOX said… 40% drop in two days

Within the last 2 days of trading, $GFOX declined a total of 40%, starting at a high of $1.70 yesterday and hitting a low of $1.01 today, before closing at $1.20 down -22%. I personally made a 29% gain on this play, see the trade details here.

GFOX-two-day-chart-03-18-2014

In short, (pun intended) it is fairly safe to say that the $GFOX has been laid to rest. I noticed that ever since @FraudResearch published this article on Seeking Alpha, it’s as if the $GFOX market consumed some bad chicken feed. Read the article on SeekingAlpha if you wish to learn about the people behind this pennystock promotion campaign.

what-does-the-gfox-say

Here is the daily chart with approximately 4 months worth of trading data.

GFOX-daily-03-18-2014-screenr-url

I actually captured a 5 minute video of live trading the day of March 3 2014 when $GFOX re-tested it’s 52wk high and fell 1 penny short of the $2.72 52wk high. The fact that $GFOX could not make a new 52wk high means it’s a perfect time to sell your long position and/or get short.

$GFOX was a very hard stock to find borrows (short shares) as noted by my broker. GFOX-hard-to-borrow

Consider yourself lucky even if you managed to find 100 shares to sell short of this stock. As of Feb 28, 2014 there are 282,449 shares of $GFOX sold short. You can see the data and it’s history here: http://www.otcmarkets.com/stock/GFOX/short-sales

I was one of the lucky ones that found some shares to short and I made a 29% gain on the trade, closing my short position at $1.22 this morning. I wasn’t actually at my desk when my GFOX trade executed, which may have been a blessing, preventing me from closing out earlier. Although I did miss the panic selling, which is usually the place where one wants to cover their short position.

Well, there is quite a collection of weed stocks to trade. But which ones will you decide to trade? For starters, it’s probably safest to trade the liquid ones. But after that, how can you attempt at seeing what the value of the company is which you are trading? I’ve made a quick excel spreadsheet here to try and show if the company is trading above or below the enterprise value, and if so, how many times above is that company trading above the enterprise value.

For example, you can see that GRNH currently has a market cap of 61.84M and the enterprise value of the company is 12.06M. This means that at today’s closing price of $0.52 per share, the company is trading 5.1x above it’s enterprise value.

Now I know what you’re thinking, how can you put a fundamental value on these hyped up weed stocks? Yeah I agree. Who knows what the market will do with these stocks. All I’m trying to do here is to see which weed stocks are still “cheap” and which ones are “expensive.”

Edit: Addition from 01-08-2014, CBDS stock crashes over 50% within 15 minutes.

Tell the market‬ your company is a ‎bitcoin‬ ‪investment‬ ‪vehicle‬ = 10,000% return.

Simply saying that a company will be investing in Bitcoin, and saying that by investing in GBC you can participate in a bitcoin investment vehicle is enough to drive any stock. Bitcoin is such a “fresh” idea that this will pump a lot of stocks that say they invest in bitcoin. Nobody will even care about the company’s fundamentals, etc.

I wish I was in early, but buying a stock that is already up ~10,000% from 52wk lows is not for me. I would imagine that most investors missed this boat. Only a few lucky one or insiders will be taking advantage of the price increase.

I saw the greenbank-paid-ad come into my email yesterday. I did some quick DD about the company. I’ve never played a stock on the CNSX before, and I wasn’t prepared to participate.

This stock hardly trades and you can see in the GBC-historical-data and the chart below. Less than 1 month ago you could’ve bought this stock between $0.005 and $0.025. After the news from yesterday this stock jumped all the way to a high of $0.57 and eventually closed at $0.50.

OTCBB: SOLS – Stock Declines 30% Within 25 Minutes (Caught on Tape!)

The stock is not very liquid, but it is still a pump and dump that has moved up almost 500% since summer of 2013. Today the stock had a pull back and closed -22% by the end of day. I captured some live footage of this collapse, I will admit it’s not the most interesting, but if you’re holding short from $0.345 it still makes you a lot of money.

OTCBB: VEND real-time intraday trading flow – 11/26/2013

VEND is one of the more newer stock promotions on the block. If you’re new to this game and need to find out which brokers you should get to participate in the action, see my blog post about brokers.

Today I decided to take some raw footage of the intraday trading since we in the TimAlerts subscription chatroom service were expecting somewhat of a sell off today. VEND ended the day down 13%, not bad. We expect more downside to come yet. Some are even thinking that VEND might get halted like LIFS just did.
