Lixte Biotechnology Holdings, Inc. (LIXT)

Stockhouse, 4-Traders, Real Pennies, MarketWatch, InvestorsHub, and Simply Wall St reported on Lixte Biotechnology Holdings, Inc. (LIXT), and today we are highlighting the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.

Lixte Biotechnology Holdings, Inc. is a drug discovery company based in East Setauket, New York. The clinical-stage Company utilizes biomarker technology to identify enzyme targets associated with serious common diseases and then designs novel compounds to attack those targets. Lixte’s product pipeline encompasses two major categories of compounds at different stages of pre-clinical and clinical development that the Company believes have wide-ranging therapeutic potential for cancer and other debilitating and life-threatening diseases. Lixte Biotechnology lists on the OTCQB.

The Company’s cancer drug development strategy has led to the discovery of novel compounds. These have the potential to be therapeutically useful against several other important but seemingly dissimilar diseases.

The phosphatase inhibitors are in pre-clinical development for lessening the extent of tissue damage following stroke, heart attack, and septic shock. The deacetylase inhibitors are in pre-clinical development for the prevention and treatment of neurodegenerative diseases, traumatic brain injury, and topically for fungal dermatitis.

Lixte’s commitment is to discovering drugs for more effective treatments for cancer. It has identified molecular signaling pathways altered in disease states and designed compounds that can safely target them in animal models.

The Company’s current drug portfolio includes inhibitors of protein phosphatases, which are vital to cell division and DNA damage repair, and inhibitors of protein deacetylases that regulate pathways of gene expression and protein degradation.

Lixte Biotechnology’s unique phosphatase inhibitor is LB-100, its lead compound. LB-100 is in a Phase I clinical trial at two NCI designated Comprehensive Cancer Centers and three U.S. Oncology Research locations.

Lixte Biotechnology granted an exclusive license of its LB-100 for the treatment of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) in Asia to Taipei Medical University (TMU). LB-100 is not currently approved for treatment of HCC.

Under the license, Taipei Medical University will ascertain the effectiveness of LB-100 against HCC in clinical trials conducted in compliance with Taiwanese and U.S. regulatory requirements. TMU will pay milestone and royalty payments to Lixte Biotechnology.

In February, Lixte Biotechnology Holdings noted that investigators at the Terry Fox Laboratory, British Columbia Cancer Agency, Vancouver, British Columbia, reported on February 7, 2018 (Lai et al., Sci. Transl. Med.10, eaan8735 (2018)) that in animal models the Company’s protein phosphatase 2A (PP2A) inhibitors overcome resistance of chronic myelogenous leukemia (CML) cells to standard treatment.

Dr. John S. Kovach, Lixte Biotechnology Holdings’ Chief Executive Officer, said "The vast majority of CML cells are killed by drugs called tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKI), the prototype of which is imatinib (Gleevec), considered the first truly targeted form of chemotherapy. … The Terry Fox investigators found inhibition of PP2A with LB-100 or LB-102 preferentially sensitizes these resistant CML cells to killing by TKI compared to normal bone marrow stem cells. If these results can be replicated in the clinic, LB-100 and analogs may further improve the effectiveness of CML therapy.”

Lixte Biotechnology Holdings, Inc. (LIXT), closed Monday's trading session at $0.13, up 4.00%, on 1,000 volume with 1 trade. The average volume for the last 60 days is 3,292 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.094/$0.39.

The Porvenir Zone is approximately 3 km to the southeast of the Norte Zone and 1.8 km southeast of the Raya Tembrillo area of the Villa Rica Zone.

J. Duane Poliquin, Almadex Minerals’ Chairman, said, “We are very excited to report these final assays from the very successful 2017 drill program. In 2017 we stepped out roughly 2 kilometers to the south of the Norte Zone and hit significant mineralization in first pass drilling in the northern part of the large Villa Rica Zone. We believe that the results from Raya Tembrillo are proof of large scale porphyry potential in this part of the project. The drill results from 2016 and 2017 clearly show that we are dealing with a large cluster of porphyry systems all of which hold the potential to be important porphyry copper-gold deposits. We are currently defining a large 2018 drill program and look forward to reporting that shortly.”

Last week, Almadex Minerals announced that its Board of Directors unanimously approved a strategic reorganization of the Company’s business. Almadex's early stage exploration projects, royalty interests and certain other non-core assets will be transferred to a newly incorporated company (Spinco).

Petroteq Energy Inc. (TSX.V:PQE) (OTCQX:PQEFF)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight Petroteq Energy Inc. (PQEFF). Today, Petroteq Energy Inc. closed trading at $1.32, up 19.28%, on 346,753 volume with 500 trades. The stock’s average daily volume over the past 60 days is 60,867, and its 52-week low/high is $0.015/$1.8892.

Petroteq Energy Inc. (TSXV: PQE; OTCQX: PQEFF; Frankfurt: A2DYWC), a company focused on the development and implementation of proprietary technologies for the energy industry, today announced that it has successfully completed testing of all major process systems at its heavy oil extraction facility in Asphalt Ridge, Utah. Further, the Company has initiated test runs of the utility system—among the final steps prior to launching commercial production.

Petroteq Energy Inc. (TSX.V: PQE) (OTCQB: PQEFF), 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.

Petroteq Energy Inc. 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, Petroteq Energy Inc. and its mining interests are primed for success.

Petroteq Energy Inc. 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.

Singlepoint, Inc. (SING)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight Singlepoint, Inc. (SING). Today, Singlepoint, Inc. closed trading at $0.0605, up 5.00%, on 3,389,316 volume with 245 trades. The stock’s average daily volume over the past 60 days is 10,104,765, and its 52-week low/high is $0.0132/$0.415.

CFN Media Group ("CannabisFN"), the leading creative agency and media network dedicated to legal cannabis, announces publication of an article discussing SinglePoint, Inc. (OTC: SING) and their recently announced entry into the blockchain healthcare space with its letter of intent with ORHub, a technology provider that aims to make operating rooms much more efficient.

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.

Medical Cannabis Payment Solutions (REFG)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight Medical Cannabis Payment Solutions (REFG). Today, Medical Cannabis Payment Solutions closed trading at $0.0362, off by 2.16%, on 161,274 volume. The stock’s average daily volume over the past 60 days is 667,712, and its 52-week low/high is $0.0161/$0.12.

Cannabis-focused financial services company Medical Cannabis Payment Solutions’ (OTC: REFG) CEO Jeremy Roberts believes that proposed legislation in Utah will be ready for consistent debate before the end of the current legislative session on March 8. An article discussing the company reads: “A medical cannabis bill that would advocate a more moderate approach and would “bridge the gap” between two very different legalization initiatives currently underway, has every chance to be successful, according to Medical Cannabis Payment Solutions (OTC: REFG) CEO Jeremy Roberts, quoted by the Deseret News (http://cnw.fm/WDo7C).

Medical Cannabis Payment Solutions (REFG), headquartered in Cheyenne, Wyoming, is a first-tier merchant processing cannabis industry pioneer, offering one of the first and only comprehensive card processing operations of its kind to serve the state-sanctioned medical marijuana industry. The company's state of the art system, which also tracks sales and tax collection, and eliminates the need to deal in cash-only transactions.

Through its robust, closed-loop merchant processing system, the company's unique "StateSourced" proprietary system enables authorized operation under FinCEN parameters and complies with all regulatory frameworks. StateSourced is tailored to deliver full-spectrum merchant processing services, providing the convenience of modern commercial card processing resources and making it the first operation of its kind geared to the legal cannabis industry.

StateSourced is not a prepaid or gift card, which is an important variable for merchants since standard banking institutions have not offered this form of payment processing to the legal cannabis industry. Federal law still considers marijuana illegal under the Controlled Substances Act, although 29 states and the District of Columbia have legalized the plant either for medicinal or recreational uses or both. This restriction has kept financial institutions at bay since most banks are federally insured and haven't been inclined to venture into the nascent industry.

Medical Cannabis Payment Solutions is able to offer its StateSourced card on a state-by-state basis where the card can be used in purchasing product from a legal, authorized vendor, providing a much-needed option for consumers and businesses alike. In another first, the company is collaborating with First Bitcoin Capital Corporation to integrate First Bitcoin's cryptocurrency ($Weed) with Medical Cannabis Payment Solutions' StateSourced payment gateway. This collaboration will allow state-licensed marijuana establishments across the nation to accept both StateSourced debit cards and cryptocurrencies such as WeedCoin and Bitcoin.

Medical Cannabis Payment Solutions president and CEO Jeremy Roberts and his executive team are working with state lawmakers to introduce legislation in an effort to address the growing problems in banking for the medical cannabis industry. For companies in the emerging legal cannabis industry, where retail and non-retail transactions such as vendor payments and payroll are almost exclusively paid for with cash, the solutions offered by StateSourced can help businesses avoid the inherent risks associated with a cash-intensive sector. Medical Cannabis Payment Solutions has also signed its first StateSourced contract with a Las Vegas-based vertically integrated marijuana establishment.

"We've completed our transition from development stage to revenue stage," says Roberts. "We have just started our business development efforts and the market is responding very well. We anticipate having many more, similar releases."

Medical Cannabis Payment Solutions provides end-to-end management across multiple systems for medicinal marijuana operations. The company solves the fragmentation problem experienced by many of these rapidly growing companies by identifying tools that are important to dispensaries and customizing those tools to meet the specific needs of this unique industry.

Petrogress, Inc. (PGAS)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight Petrogress, Inc. (PGAS). Today, Petrogress, Inc. closed trading at $0.0235, off by 9.62%, on 248,578 volume with 17 trades. The stock’s average daily volume over the past 60 days is 204,114, and its 52-week low/high is $0.017/$0.072.

Petrogress, Inc. (PGAS) founded in 2009, owns and operates a fleet of tankers from its base in the historic Port of Piraeus, Greece, through a series of Marshall Islands subsidiaries. The company is an international merchant of petroleum products which includes reliably marketing and trading crude oil, distillates, and refined products off the coast of West Africa. The company also operates service and shipping facilities at the Port of Limassol in Cyprus and the Port of Tema, Greater Accra, in Ghana. It is actively seeking expansion opportunities, including in operating and developing natural gas production and transmission facilities along with LNG processing in the U.S., refinery operations in north and west Africa, and the transport and sales of LNG in Europe.

Petrogress has created a diversified revenue stream, giving it a significant advantage over similar companies working in the oil and gas shipping arena. A case in point is the recent formation of "PG Cypyard & Offshore Service Terminal Ltd. ("Cypyard"), through the company's wholly owned subsidiary, Petrogress Int'l, LLC. Cypyard is concluding negotiations for an operations and management agreement covering ports in Hellenic Cyprus, including the Port of Limassol, directly with the Cyprus Ports Authority. Current plans include a long-term lease with renewal options covering all in-place port facilities, including floating dock and dry dock areas, with cranes and scaffolding, construction and repair workshops and storage, and complete on-site administrative and office space.

"I think the opportunities there are great, and dealing directly with partners in government has numerous benefits," said Christos P. Traios, president of Petrogress Inc. in a news release announcing the venture. The recent appointment of two industry experts to the Petrogress Advisory Board is expected to help the company capitalize on future growth opportunities while simultaneously developing a comprehensive U.S. and international lobbying and government outreach program to facilitate business plans in the U.S., European Union and Africa.

Additional Petrogress Inc. subsidiaries are:

  • Petrogress Co. Ltd., an international merchant of petroleum products that combines regional market knowledge with over 20 years of excellent shipping experience.
  • Petrogress Co. Ltd., an international merchant of petroleum products that combines regional market knowledge with over 20 years of excellent shipping experience.
  • Petrogress Oil & Gas Energy Inc., which has expansion plans through a supply of liquified natural gas located in the oil fields of Texas with an eye toward exporting LNG to Mediterranean markets.

Petrogress continues to "adjust its sails" in order to meet new challenges. Opportunities include upstream oil resources and exploration, the addition of more product fleet carriers, downstream movement of petroleum products from refineries to finished sales, and sea transportation of liquified natural gas. A closely followed economist, Jim O'Neill, states that oil prices could spike more than 25% in the next year. O'Neill, now an economics professor at the University of Manchester, says the market is finally waking up to the fact that global economic growth is gaining momentum and likely expanding at 4 percent or higher. That means there will be more demand for oil, the article states, which translates into brighter days ahead for companies like Petrogress. Disclaimer

Over 1.2 million people currently use cannabis, including CBD products, for medical application, including cancer, epilepsy, and depression. By sourcing hemp outside the U.S., the company avoids current federally-based legal problems involved in growing cannabis domestically. In the meantime, PotNetwork Holdings continues to target a large and rapidly developing cannabis market, expanding from $6.5 billion in 2016, to an expected $30 billion in 2021 (Forbes), and $50 billion in 2026 (Bloomberg). The cannabidiol market alone is projected to reach $2.1 billion in 2020, a 700% increase from 2015. PotNetwork Holdings Inc. plans to expand its subsidiaries as well as make strategic acquisitions.

Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (CSE:LXX) (OTCQB:LXRP)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (LXRP). Today, Lexaria Bioscience Corp. closed trading at $1.34, up 3.08%, on 91,367 volume with 201 trades. The stock’s average daily volume over the past 60 days is 457,519 and its 52-week low/high is $0.27/$2.54.

Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (LXRP) has developed and out-licenses its proprietary technology for improved taste, rapidity, and delivery of bioactive compounds, including cannabinoids. Though boasting a wide range of health benefits, cannabinoids are traditionally poorly absorbed by the body's gastrointestinal tract. To achieve higher effectiveness, consumers usually default to smoking. Lexaria provides a superior administration method by delivering hemp oil ingredients – or through locally licensed partners, cannabis oil ingredients – through a patented process within food products.

The key differentiator between Lexaria's products and others on the market is the company's disruptive technology proven to enhance the absorption of orally ingested cannabinoids while improving the "unusual" taste of cannabinoids and allowing for lower overall dosing with higher efficacy. Lexaria is primarily a B2B enterprise, and is in licensing discussions or has existing agreements with companies in Canada, the largest-market states in the USA, and internationally. Lexaria has also developed its own brands partly for demonstration purposes, utilizing its patented technology to infuse hemp oil ingredients within lipids in popular foods. These brands include ViPova™, Lexaria Energy Foods, and TurboCBD™.

In 2015, Lexaria commissioned an independent, third-party lab to test its technology under carefully monitored in vitro conditions. Results showed that the company's technological process and lipid formulation both improve intestinal absorption as much as 500%. Additional follow-up studies in human volunteers suggested that Lexaria's processed, lipid-infused tea may be more effective in an actual gastrointestinal system than in an in vitro simulation with results indicating as much as a 1,000% increase in overall absorption.

Lexaria also has an R&D partnership with the Canadian government's National Research Council. That R&D is expected to characterize molecular bond formation theorized to occur with Lexaria's unique technology between the lipid delivery agents and the bioactive substances it processes and combines. Results from this R&D are expected to support accelerating B2B relationships – not just in the cannabis industry, but also to support new B2B business relationships in the fields of vitamins, NSAIDs, and nicotine delivery. All of these sectors expected to offer additional future growth potential.

Aside from testing, a critical component of Lexaria Bioscience's business model is a strong intellectual property portfolio that utilizes the most commonly used food processing techniques. As of 2017, the company's patent portfolio includes 19 patent applications filed and pending in more than 40 countries around the world. The most recent patent applications expand Lexaria's lipophilic food and beverage composition claims to include the processing of cannabinoids, vitamins, NSAIDs and nicotine in many of the world's most commonly used food processing ingredients. Lexaria is expecting additional new patent awards both in the USA and internationally in 2017 and 2018.

Royalties play a vital role in Lexaria's revenue-generating business model. The company out-licenses its technology (royalty) to third party partners, and has several deals signed and/or pending. The company's growth initiatives are guided by a management team headed by CEO Chris Bunka, a serial entrepreneur who has raised more than $50 million in working capital for the companies he has led over the course of his career. He is supported by a team of professionals with extensive experience in pharmaceutical and bioscience sectors, invention, toxicology, consumer goods, and other relevant skillsets. Disclaimer
