OTC Markets, MarketWatch, Stockhouse, InvestorsHub, Barchart, SmallCapVoice, Streetwise Reports, Metals News, and StockoftheWeek.net reported on LiCo Energy Metals, Inc. (WCTXF), and today we are highlighting the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.

OTCQB-listed, LiCo Energy Metals, Inc. conducts exploration for metals used in the production of lithium-ion batteries. The Company has four ongoing projects in mining-friendly jurisdictions within the U.S., Canada, and Chile. It has an increasing portfolio of encouraging projects, all with goals of developing battery-grade lithium or cobalt. LiCo Energy Metals has its corporate headquarters in Vancouver, British Columbia.

The Company’s projects include the Glencore Bucke Property, the Teledyne Cobalt Project, the Purickuta Exploitation Project, the Dixie Valley Lithium Project, and the Black Rock Desert Lithium Project. The Glencore property comprises 16.2 hectares. It sits along the west boundary of LiCo’s Teledyne Cobalt Project.

The Teledyne Cobalt Project comprises 5 mining claims and 6 staked crown claims in the Buck and Lorrain Townships, in the district of Temiskaming, Ontario. The project encompasses 115.5 hectares of mining and surface rights, with an additional 439.1 hectares of staked crown claims.

The Purickuta Project comprises160 hectares. It is one of a few "exploitation concessions" granted within the Salar de Atacama, home to roughly 37 percent of the globe’s Lithium production.

LiCo has entered into an option to acquire 100 percent, net 3 percent smelter royalty to acquire 348 claims in the Dixie Valley Exploration Project in Churchill County, Nevada. Additionally, the Company has entered into an option agreement where it may earn an undivided 70 percent interest subject to a 3 percent Net Smelter Return Royalty in the existing Black Rock Desert Lithium Project. This Project comprises 199 placer claims (3,980 acres/1,610 hectares) in southwest Black Rock Desert, Washoe County, Nevada.

Last week, LiCo Energy Metals reported assay results for drill holes TE17-04 and TE17-05 completed on the Teledyne Cobalt Property, positioned 6 km northeast of Cobalt, Ontario. The design of the present drill program was to confirm and extend the existing known mineralization along strike and up and down dip.

A summary of the most significant results of the recent drill core assays include TE17-05 2.32 percent Co over 4.00 m from 126.5 to 130.50 m, including 21.9 percent Co over 0.36 m from 127.64 to 128.00 m; and TE17-05 1.70 percent Co over 6.00 m from 136.00 to 142.00 m.

Pivot Pharmaceuticals Inc. (PVOTF)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight Pivot Pharmaceuticals Inc. (PVOTF). Today, Pivot Pharmaceuticals Inc. closed trading at $1.87, off by 7.43%, on 317,087 volume with 182 trades. The stock’s average daily volume over the past 60 days is 83,031, and its 52-week low/high is $0.047/$2.46.

Pivot Pharmaceuticals Inc. (PVOTF) is pleased to announce that it has filed three provisional patents with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (“USPTO”) related to the delivery of cannabinoid-based products. Also today, CannabisNewsWire released a report on the company detailing why Pivot Pharmaceuticals is “One to Watch”

Pivot Pharmaceuticals Inc. (PVOTF), based in Vancouver, Canada, is an emerging biopharmaceutical company engaged in the development and commercialization of pharmaceuticals and nutraceuticals that provide novel treatments for unmet healthcare needs. Pivot's recent acquisition of BiPhasix ™ Transdermal Drug Delivery technology for the delivery of cannabinoids (CBD) to patients provides the answer for an age-old problem associated with cannabinoid-based therapies: the lack of a robust smoke-less delivery mechanism.

Research into the bioavailability of cannabinoid-based therapeutics shows that rates of absorption vary greatly between smoking cannabis to an orally-consumed product, with a difference noted even between individuals. Cannabinoids are degraded in the stomach and smoking may not appeal to patients for health or lifestyle reasons. Topical delivery, while a better alternative, has suffered from weak formulation issues. Transdermal cannabinoid delivery, on the other hand, could provide a better alternative route since it reduces side effects and bypasses other absorption issues. In addition, transdermal delivery provides the benefit of enabling patients to access a steady stream of medication over a prolonged period with fewer side effects.

Pivot Pharmaceutical's newly created subsidiary, Pivot Green Stream Health Solutions Inc. ("Pivot Green Stream"), will focus on improving the bioavailability of cannabinoid-based and pharmaceuticals. BiPhasix™ has been tested in FDA and EMA approved human clinical trials, which have shown the delivery system enhances the bioavailability of many drugs and improves clinical outcomes. Pivot Green Stream is tasked with developing several natural health products containing cannabinoids (CBD) that can receive a Health Canada Natural Health Product (NHP) designation. This marketing method ensures a shorter development cycle and faster revenue generation opportunities.

Pivot Pharmaceuticals Inc., which has positioned itself as a growing and crucial vertical in the cannabis industry, represents a compelling opportunity in the biotechnology field. The company's plans include working with Licensed Producers (LP) and Licensed Dealers (LD) to bring newer therapies to patients. The company has also applied to list on the Canadian Stock Exchange (CSE).

The global medical marijuana market is expected to reach a value of $55.8 billion by 2025, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. The growing number of states and countries gaining approval for using cannabis in therapeutic applications is expected to continue driving the market forward.

Pivot Pharmaceuticals has assembled a highly experienced management team, bringing together a wealth of clinical, commercial, product development and financial experience. Among the many healthcare targets in Pivot's pipeline are cancer supportive care, pain and inflammation, women's sexual dysfunction, dermatology and eye disease. Disclaimer

That's a stunning advancement from the conventional method of extracting minerals from brine through an evaporation process that can take up to 18 months, requires hundreds of acres of land, and averages less than a 50 percent mineral recovery rate. Using this advanced water purification technology, MGX Minerals cleans the wastewater that accompanies petroleum as it's being pulled up to the surface. The company's petrolithium process eliminates the need to inject contaminated wastewater back into the ground, which prevents drinking water contamination and possible earthquakes.

In January 2017, MGX Minerals successfully recovered concentrated lithium from heavy oil evaporator blowdown wastewater using its rapid recovery process, an accomplishment independently confirmed by the Saskatchewan Research Council. In August 2017, the company also successfully processed wastewater and lithium brine from eight North American projects at its one-cubic-meter-per-hour processing plant, proving the technology is economically viable. Research group Global Water Intelligence expects the wastewater treatment industry to grow into a $45 billion market annually by 2025, which suggests there are ample revenue-generating opportunities for MGX Minerals technology.

Lithium, the "white gold" of the new energy economy, is the key to clean energy development as global demand for hybrid and electric vehicles, high-drain portable electronic devices, and large-scale energy storage systems ramps up. Grand View Research, Inc. reports that the global lithium-ion battery market is expected to reach $93.1 billion by 2025. Current market forces show a high demand for lithium and a low supply, which further supports the necessity of MGX Mineral's cleaner, faster method of extracting high-value minerals from brine wastewater.

MGX Minerals is led by a team of industry standout performers who have worked in the mining and technology industries for decades. The leadership team is joined by an array of top-notch technical partners with unmatched experience in the oil and gas sectors, environmental services industry, marketing and product development, along with applied research and commercial development of technologies.

PreveCeutical Medical Inc. (CSE: PREV) (OTCQB: PRVCF) (FSE: 18H)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight PreveCeutical Medical Inc. (PRVCF). Today, PreveCeutical Medical Inc. closed trading at $0.385, up 6.94%, on 45,507 volume with 21 trades. The stock’s average daily volume over the past 60 days is 5,572, and its 52-week low/high is $0.01/$0.80.

PreveCeutical Medical Inc. (CSE:PREV) (OTCQB:PRVCF) and UniQuest Pty Limited, the main commercialization company of the University of Queensland (UQ), Australia, are expecting 2018 to be an exciting, productive year for joint medical research projects.

PreveCeutical Medical Inc. (PRVCF), headquartered in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, is a health sciences company dedicated to researching and developing innovative options for preventive and curative therapies utilizing organic and Nature Identical™ products. The company is strategically staking out select positions in the medically acute areas of diabetes and obesity, pain management, neurological disorders and cancer.

PreveCeutical Medical Inc. had its beginnings in 2009 when Stephen Van Deventer, a seasoned businessman and venture capitalist, and Kimberly Van Deventer, a successful entrepreneur, met and formed a business partnership. The duo created Cornerstone Global Partners, a venture capital and business development company, and became involved in numerous ventures including building companies such as Aurora Cannabis Inc. Taking their interest in the health and wellness market further, the pair began researching how nature and science can work together to benefit health-conscious consumers. Coining and trademarking the word "PreveCeutical" – a combination of the words "preventive" and "pharmaceutical" – was a precursor to the company's formation and incorporation in October 2015.

The company's first product was developed in the Dominican Republic and is now marketed and distributed worldwide by PreveCeutical. It is a Caribbean Blue Scorpion venom product sold under the trade name CELLB9®. This product is an oral dilute solution infused with select peptides sourced exclusively from the blue scorpion (Rhopalurus princeps) found only in Caribbean nations. The active potentiated ingredients in CELLB9, which have been used in over 40 countries for over a decade, appear to support health at a deep, cellular level. PreveCeutical's research team is using proprietary chemistry to generate Nature Identical™ peptides derived from natural compounds found in Caribbean Blue Scorpion venom with the goal of eventually treating, regulating and preventing cancer progression. Peptides are also being used to target an array of disease indications including metabolic disorders, pain management, cancers, cardiovascular and infectious diseases.

PreveCeutical is developing the first nose-to-brain delivery system of cannabinoids (CBDs) with a novel process that prepares insoluble drug-containing nano-micelles and successfully incorporating them into a proprietary sol-gels application, essentially creating a targeted drug delivery vehicle. Intended for use via a nasal spray, this unique formulation rapidly gels upon contact with mucosal tissue, which paves the way for direct nose-to-brain delivery. This novel application eliminates first pass metabolism (stomach, intestines, liver), potentially improving bioavailability and delivering extended time release formulations that may alleviate side effects of higher dosage therapeutics. This CBD-based patented formula is projected to be deployed in selected markets with licensed medical marijuana companies within 18 months.

PreveCeutical is working with four leading Australian research centers to develop a curative therapy for diabetes and obesity. This four-year program involves engineering a novel approach that selectively targets the gene that encodes for the protein PTP-1B, which is implicated and over-expressed in both type-2 diabetes and obesity. PreveCeutical's gene-silencing technology would effectively "turn off" the genetic signal which leads to the over-production of this key protein molecule, bringing it back down to safe, normalized levels, and prevent the body from storing excessive fat. Diabetes kills one person every six seconds, with more than $800 billion spent globally on the disease.

Another exciting joint venture, established with Sports 1 Marketing, will focus on the therapeutic potential in the peptides and proteins connected to the Caribbean Blue Scorpion venom to potentially treat mild brain injury concussions. Developing a therapeutic product geared towards athletes who suffer from concussions could help alleviate suffering experienced by those who are affected by head trauma.

PreveCeutical Medical's science and research team is led by Dr. Harendra (Harry) Parekh, Ph.D., who is based at the University of Queensland's (UQ) Pharmacy Australia Centre of Excellence (PACE), and Dr. Makarand Jawadekar, Ph.D., whose 28 years of R&D experience with Pfizer Inc., is applicable in his role as chief science officer. Research collaborators include Dr. Rakesh Veedu, an emerging expert internationally in the field of molecular medicine, and Professor Grant Ramm, who is currently head of a leading medical research institute located in Brisbane, Australia.

PreveCeutical Medical is partnering with leading industry experts and companies in its quest to be a leader in the preventive health sciences sector. Its Research and Development partnership with UniQuest, the main commercialization company for the University of Queensland, provides PreveCeutical with the rights to all intellectual property arising from projects created under the agreement. PreveCeutical Medical Inc.'s management team brings an extensive portfolio of research experience, product development, deep corporate strategy and capital markets leadership to the company's core.

Founded in 1999, ChineseInvestors.com, Inc. (CIIX) has become a leading financial information website for Chinese-speaking investors in the United States and China. Recognizing unprecedented opportunities in the U.S. cannabis industry, CIIX is also laying the groundwork to capitalize on growing demand for cannabidiol (CBD)-based nutrition and health products.

Through its primary website, www.ChineseInvestors.com, CIIX offers a variety of investor education products and services, including real-time market commentary, analysis and educational related services in Chinese language character sets; consultative services to smaller private companies considering becoming a public company; and advertising and public relations related support services.

At the center of this initiative is the ChineseInvestors Method, a unique integration of a disciplined investing process, web-based tools, personalized instructions and support. Using this strategy, CIIX provides reliable market information to help investors make informed investment decisions and meet their individualized financial goals.

CIIX is also leveraging its financial expertise to enter into the burgeoning CBD industry, which within a few years has grown from a relatively invisible sector to a billowing market expected to reach $2.1 billion in consumer sales by 2020.

The increasing demand for CBD-based products is a catalyst for innovative business endeavors. To this accord, CIIX has established a three-year development plan to capitalize on the convergence of CBD and the nutrition and health products market in mainland China, where the benefits of CBD oil have not been widely recognized.

Under a wholesale agreement with a reputable CBD health brand, CIIX is launching the world's first online CBD health products store published in the Chinese language. The site, www.ChineseCBDoil.com, caters to a growing number of Chinese people awakening to the numerous health benefits of CBD oil for treatment of a variety of conditions such as anxiety, stress, poor sleep, Alzheimer's disease, and more. CIIX expects to launch this website at the end of January 2017, and plans to sell CBD-infused products via online and in-store.

In conjunction, CIIX's cannabis-focused "Yelp"-style mobile app is in development as a platform for Chinese people to review and discuss various cannabis products. The app will be the first marijuana social media mobile app designed for Chinese-speaking customers worldwide. Disclaimer

Singlepoint, Inc. (SING)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight Singlepoint, Inc. (SING). Today, Singlepoint, Inc. closed trading at $0.062, off by 2.36%, on 11,832,863 volume with 627 trades. The stock’s average daily volume over the past 60 days is 13,696,131, and its 52-week low/high is $0.0132/$0.415.

NetworkNewsAudio announces the Audio Press Release (APR) titled "How Blockchain is Transforming Payments and More," featuring SinglePoint, Inc. (OTC Pink: SING). To hear the NetworkNewsAudio version, visit LINK. To read the original editorial, visit LINK.

Singlepoint, Inc. (SING) has grown from a full-service mobile technology provider to a publicly-traded holding company. Through diversification into horizontal markets, SinglePoint is building its portfolio by acquiring an interest in undervalued subsidiaries, thereby providing a rich, diversified holding base.

SinglePoint's approach is to first research and identify acquisition opportunities in which it can take an active and influential role among existing leadership to provide enhanced strategy and direction. Target companies are undervalued, cash-flow positive, with high potential and verified assets. SinglePoint acquires and takes controlling interest of successful candidate companies.

SinglePoint recently signed a Letter of Intent to acquire an interest in Jacksam Corp., dba Convectium, a profitable California-based provider of equipment, branding, and packaging solutions for the cannabis industry. Convectium has developed the world's first cartridge and vape pen oil filling machine for wholesale distribution to dispensaries. The 710Shark and 710Seal systems can fill and package over 100 cartridges or disposable vape pens in 30 seconds and are sold to dispensaries through its EquipCanna.com brand. The company also operates a consumer brand that includes BlackoutX and HazeSticks and reaches customers in over 52 countries.

Additionally, SinglePoint has raised more than $300,000 and has signed a Letter of Intent to secure an additional $1 million in funding. The move provides management with ample capital to execute its business plan, while avoiding debt repayments that can eat into cash flow and reduce flexibility over time. It's also a rare development for a development-stage company in the cannabis industry.

Guided by a visionary leadership team with extensive experience in technology, engineering, marketing and raising capital, SinglePoint continues to explore high-potential acquisition opportunities to grow and diversify its current holding base. The company also plans to uplist to the OTCQB and become a fully reporting company during the current fiscal year.

The company has engaged Milost Advisors to pursue acquisitions and financing facilities toward funding acquisitions, as well as to provide working capital. Milost Advisors will assist SinglePoint in the acquisition of undervalued companies with annual revenues of at least $50 million, and has already identified potential acquisition targets for the company to consider.

First Cobalt Corp. (TSX.V:FCC) (OTCQB:FTSSF)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight First Cobalt Corp. (FTSSF). Today, First Cobalt Corp. closed trading at $0.887, off by 0.89%, on 234,996 volume with 272 trades. The stock’s average daily volume over the past 60 days is 278,809, and its 52-week low/high is $0.3148/$1.3041.

First Cobalt Corp. (FTSSF) this morning announced positive results from its 2017 drill program, which intersected 25 meters of fracture-controlled silver mineralization in Canada’s Cobalt Camp. The company’s drilling found 106.2 g/t silver over 13.7 meters, including 445 g/t silver over 3.0 meters, near the Keeley Shaft. Also today, Uptick Newswire, a leader in international micro-cap coverage and investor communication, welcomed back Trent Mell, President and CEO of First Cobalt Corporation. To listen to the full interview please click here to the following link: https://upticknewswire.com/featured-interview-ceo-trent-mell-of-first-cobalt-corp-otcqb-ftssf-2

First Cobalt Corp. (TSX.V: FCC) (OTCQB: FTSSF), with headquarters in Canada, seeks to create the world's largest pure-play cobalt exploration and development company. The company's current focus is on its Greater Cobalt Project located in Silver Centre, Ontario. The company is also in the midst of a three-way merger with Cobalt One Ltd. and CobalTech Mining Inc. and on completion First Cobalt will control over 10,000 hectares of prospective land and 50 historic mining operations in the Cobalt Camp in Ontario, Canada, as well as a mill and a permitted refinery facility.

The merger agreements with Cobalt One Ltd. and CobalTech Mining Inc., announced earlier this year, will result in a combined land position of more than 10,000 hectares (nearly 25,000 acres) in the Cobalt Camp containing approximately 50 past cobalt/silver producers and working mines. Initial test results from a mineralogical assessment of sample material taken from various historical mines located throughout the Cobalt Camp show both cobalt-rich and silver-rich mineralization styles. Samples taken at the former Bellellen mine, located within the Greater Cobalt Project in Ontario, show high grade cobalt assays, prompting First Cobalt to increase its drilling program at that site.

First Cobalt Corp. is moving quickly to leverage its potential against an economic background that estimates global consumption for refined cobalt is set to grow at an average rate of approximately 5 percent per annum for the next 10 years. The electric vehicle market, in particular, is driving this sector since more than 50 percent of the world's current production of cobalt is used in the manufacture of rechargeable lithium-ion batteries. The global lithium-ion battery market, as estimated by Zion Market Research, indicates the value at around USD $31 billion in 2016 and is expected to generate revenue of nearly USD $68 billion by end of 2022, growing at a compound annual growth rate of slightly above 17 percent.

The company's clear pathway to production and cash flow generation includes being one of only four fully permitted cobalt extraction refineries in Canada with significant material and processing infrastructure on site. With the price of cobalt increasing significantly and its importance in the growing battery market underpinning a strong long-term demand forecast, First Cobalt Corp. and its mining interests are primed for success.

First Cobalt Corp. President and CEO Trent Mell, a mining executive and capital markets professional with extensive international transactional experience, is joined by a team of reputable and seasoned deal-makers, mine builders and mine operators with decades of global experience in exploration, business development, geoscience, engineering and finance.

EVIO, Inc. (EVIO)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight EVIO, Inc. (EVIO). Today, EVIO, Inc. closed trading at $1.90, off by 4.04%, on 52,859 volume with 100 trades. The stock’s average daily volume over the past 60 days is 111,120, and its 52-week low/high is $0.47/$2.85.

ABcann Global (TSX.V:ABCN) (OTCQB:ABCCF)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight ABcann Global (ABCCF). Today, ABcann Global closed trading at $2.1521, off by 14.40%, on 1,419,280 volume with 2,012 trades. The stock’s average daily volume over the past 60 days is 766,204 and its 52-week low/high is $0.6171/$3.2929.

ABcann Global (TSX.V:ABCN) (OTCQB:ABCCF) announced today that, further to its news release of December 12, 2017, it has completed the acquisition of Harvest Medicine Inc.

ABcann Global (TSX.V: ABCN) (OTCQB: ABCCF) ABcann Medicinals, Inc. is a globally licensed, cost efficient producer of premium quality organic standardized medicinal cannabis. One of the earliest licensed Canadian medical marijuana producers under Canada's federally-controlled Access to Cannabis for Medical Purposes Regulations (ACMPR), ABcann has five years of operating experience in the burgeoning medical marijuana space. The company currently owns and operates a fully functioning 14,500 square foot facility in Napanee, Ontario. Additionally, ABcann owns 65 acres of real estate with proper zoning and existing infrastructure in place to support the construction of another production facility of up to one million square feet.

In a November 2016 report, market research firm Canaccord Genuity Group forecasted that the medical marijuana market in Canada could see sales in excess of $8 billion by 2024, creating a sizable opportunity for the country's licensed producers (LPs). The research firm also noted that the "rigorous process of becoming a licensed producer of cannabis in Canada imposes significant barriers to entry and there will be a shortfall of supply in a legalized market in the short-term." This market barrier serves as a strategic advantage for ABcann as it prepares for its highly-anticipated IPO, which is currently scheduled for April 2017.

Canaccord's synopsis of the Canadian cannabis industry is supported by recent market activity, as companies sporting one of the illustrious Canadian government licenses for medicinal production have recorded strong growth following IPO. Canopy Growth (OTC: TWMJ), one of the largest fully-licensed Canadian marijuana growers, saw share prices skyrocket by more than 700 percent in the months following its initial offering. Aphria Inc. (OTC: APHQF), another licensed grower, climbed by more than 900 percent following its IPO. Other companies that have recorded huge growth since going public include Aurora Cannabis (OTC: ACBFF), climbing nearly 900 percent, and SupremePharma (OTC: SPRWF), which soared more than 1,300 percent.

With these market trends in mind, ABcann's impending IPO is one that prospective investors in the marijuana sector will want to explore. Recalls from some of the biggest players in the Canadian cannabis industry have highlighted the considerable learning curve that LPs face in today's market, which makes ABcann's proven track record in the market all the more noteworthy. The company has built a reputation over the years for its best-in-class standardized approach to growing cannabis, including the thoughtful omission of pesticides and a computer monitored growing technique that allows ABcann to minimize the risks of variance in its yields and ensure the creation of consistently high-quality products.

This technique, which the company calls the ABcann Advantage, has helped it record a customer retention rate of 94.7 percent alongside 30 percent month-over-month customer growth. When combined with ABcann's current yield rate, which it has measured at roughly 100 percent greater than the industry average, the company has constructed a strong foundation upon which to build a sizable presence in the global cannabis industry. This global growth potential is illustrated by ABcann's partnership with Israel's Syqe Medical, producer of the world's first selective-dose pharmaceutical grade medicinal plant inhaler. After visiting the company's production facility, Perry Davidson, founder of Syqe Medical, noted that ABcann's production technologies put it "in a class with the best in the world" in its ability to produce standardized pharmaceutical grade cannabis.

ABcann's entry into the public sector is being guided by a seasoned management team, board of directors and advisory board that feature well over a century of combined industry experience. Ken Clement, the company' founder and executive chairman, has been the key component and driving force behind ABcann's development since its inception. His vision of standardized production and dosage sets ABcann apart in the medical cannabis sector. Clement is joined on the company's management team by CEO Aaron Keay. Keay brings more than a decade of capital markets experience to ABcann, having played a role in raising approximately $250 million for public and private market issuers.

Notably, ABcann also has access to the 'Father of Cannabis Research', Raphael Mechoulam, PhD, through its board of advisors. An organic chemist and professor of medicinal chemistry at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Mechoulam was the first scientist to isolate both cannabidiol (CBD) and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), and he has received more than 25 prestigious academic awards, including the Rothschild Prize in Chemical Sciences and Physical Sciences in 2012.

With more than 65 acres of growth capacity, a healthy cash balance to fund upcoming construction efforts, steady sales growth, industry-leading yield rates and an established operations team in place, ABcann is well-positioned to compete in the rapidly-expanding Canadian medicinal cannabis industry. These factors, along with the company's ongoing global expansion into the European, Australian and Israeli markets, show why ABcann Medicinals' upcoming public offering fits the bill as "Canada's Next Medical Marijuana IPO."
