mCig, Inc. LTCHD
We put LTCHD up on yesterday afternoon’s Extended Watchlist, and are entering it into the discussion this morning as a new play on our marijuana-related stock radar. The company has recently transitioned to a new name, from Lifetech Industries to the current mCig. Along with that change, the company effected a 10-for-1 forward split.
For people who already owned shares prior to the restructuring, those shares were subject to a routine hold, which can take 3-5 days for the position to become free-trading. So we are on the lookout for a pullback this mid-week as that occurs, and people attempt to lock in profits by selling their shares into the market.
From there, we’ll be on the lookout for a bottom, and subsequent bounce.
The company falls under the marijuana stock category, as they are preparing for the rollout of their first mCig product within the next month. The company will be looking to capitalize on the legalization of marijuana in two states, as well as the growing popularity of “vapor pens” which vaporize cannabis concentrates for consumption.
BELLEVUE, WA, Aug 28, 2013 (Marketwired via COMTEX) — Lifetech Industries, Inc. (OTCBB: LTCHD), announces today that it has changed its name to mCig, Inc. and completed a forward stock split on a 10-for-1 basis.
On August 2, 2013, the Company’s Certificate of Incorporation was amended and restated to effect the name change and the forward stock split. The name change is part of an initiative led by incoming CEO Paul Rosenberg to reposition the company and its technology by launching a new consumer product, the mCig — a purpose built loose leaf eCig that will be launched next month.
mCig’s CEO, Paul Rosenberg, commented: “With the name change complete we can now focus on the next chapter of our business development targeting two long-term secular trends by developing consumer products that are exciting and disruptive. We will be updating our shareholders shortly with more information on our first product the mCig which will be launched in Q3 2013.”
The name change and the forward stock split were also approved by the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (“FINRA”). The name change and forward split will be effective for trading purposes on the open of business on Thursday August 29, 2013. The new symbol will be (LTCHD) for 20 business days until September 27, 2013 when the symbol will change to (MCIG).
ENDEXX Corp. EDXC
EDXC is another medical marijuana play that we’ve been covering for quite some time. It also appeared in Friday’s report that revisited our interest in many cannabis stocks. Since that time, EDXC has traded from a low of .055 (Friday) to yesterday’s high of .097. That works out to a two-session move of 76%
Congrats to anyone who was able to take advantage of that timely alert, and be sure to check out that report containing all of our marijuana interests, as the entire sector was given a morale boost via last week’s US Department of Justice announcement that the federal government would not be interfering in individual states rights to make marijuana available to their citizens for both medical and recreational use.
Press Ventures, Inc. PVEN
PVEN has experienced an abnormal burst in volume over the past week or so, and yesterday’s volume exceeded the three days’ prior combined. Given that the stock wasn’t really trading up to that point, we have reason to suspect that PVEN could be the subject of an upcoming promotion. This out-of-the-blue volume explosion could be a result of front-loading, and so we are placing this stock on watch for any major price movements that could occur.
We also exercise the utmost caution when dealing with plays that have promotional activity going on behind the scenes, and this instance is no different.
Facebook, Inc. FB Options
FB has recently been pushing its 52-week highs (Hit 42.26 on Friday), so we are looking at how to capitalize on the trend via options trading. The 09/13 $41 Calls (closed at 1.57 yesterday) are of great interest to us, because if FB can breakout to $45 by next Friday, we could be looking at multi-bag gains from these contracts.
