Over the past couple of weeks, our coverage of cannabis stocks has been relatively toned down. Both an abundance of other interests, as well as sector-wide consolidations pushed many of these plays to the back burner. Today we want to talk about some of the ones that are once again showing signs of life.
Transbyte Corp. ERBB
The last time we mentioned ERBB was at the end of January. By that time, we had already seen monstrous gains from this stock over the previous year, coming all the way from subpenny territory. At the time of our last mention, ERBB was trading at .0122, and this week we’ve noticed the stock reaching new highs, touching .045 on Wednesday. In just three weeks, that’s a 269% jump.
Yesterday also brought an exciting PR that we wanted to share. Tranzbyte’s marijuana vending solution, the ZaZZZ machine, will be put into use for the first time at a Colorado dispensary. Click through to the full PR for details:
TEMPE, AZ, Feb 20, 2014 (Marketwired via COMTEX) — Tranzbyte Corporation (OTC Pink: ERBB) announced today that it has signed a formal agreement with Herbal Elements LLP, a legal Medical Marijuana Dispensary in Eagle-Vail, Colorado to assist in the final aspects of machine roll-out specific to Colorado. >>> FULL PR
Latteno Food Corp. LATF
We last pointed out LATF On February 11th, after witnessing a nice 43% intraday move the day prior, from .007 to .01. Since that time the stock has been on a bullish run, pushing its way upward and culminating at a high of .0154 yesterday. That means we’ve seen a positive move of 120% in a span of just eight sessions.
LATF also had news out yesterday, alluding to forthcoming quarterly figures that blow last year’s numbers out of the water:
SANTA ANA, CA, Feb 20, 2014 (Marketwired via COMTEX) — Latteno Food Corp. (OTC Pink: LATF) is pleased to announce that preliminary Fourth Quarter financials for 2013 shows record numbers for LATF shareholders.Preliminary Fourth Quarter reports 3,100% increase in prior year’s revenues and over $413,000 in net income versus a net income of only $7,000 for prior year 2012. Year-end financials are anticipated to be filed with OTC within 30 days.
Media Technics Corp. MEDT
MEDT last appeared in our reports along with ERBB on Jan. 29th. In addition to gaining as much as 90% from its recent low of .001 to yesterday’s high of .0019, we also wanted to point out this morning’s press release:
BEVERLY HILLS, CA, Feb. 21, 2014 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ — MediaTechnics Corporation (PINKSHEETS: MEDT) is pleased to announce that Henri Atamian has stepped down as President and CEO and appointed Jeremy Carr as MEDT’s president and sole director.

Verde Media Group, Inc. VMGI
We’re putting VMGI up on our radar at the suggestion of one of our faithful readers, Craig S. This is another cannabis-related stock to add to our enormous tracking list, thanks Craig!
Options Trading Side Notes:
The BBRY 02/28 $10 Calls we mentioned in yesterday’s extended watchlist fared well, making a 50% intraday move from .12 to .18. We’re going to continue monitoring these contracts into their expiration date.
In addition to those, we’re going to be looking at FB $69.50 and $70 Weekly Calls for a possible intraday flip opportunity.
