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 $0.32, up 9.59%, on 43,598 volume with 25 trades. The stock’s average daily volume over the past 60 days is 88,729 and its 52-week low/high is $0.0913/$0.699.

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

Epazz, Inc. (EPAZ)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight Epazz, Inc. (EPAZ). Today, Epazz, Inc. closed trading at $0.0135, up 12.50%, on 100,000 volume with 6 trades. The stock’s average daily volume over the past 60 days is 72,558, and its 52-week low/high is $0.0061/$0.09.

Epazz, Inc. (EPAZ), is an enterprise-wide software company specializing in customized web applications for higher education institutions and the public sector. Through its proprietary BoxesOS applications, the company aims to create and maintain virtual communities that facilitate enhanced communication and provide up-to-date information and content in order to streamline the decision-making process for its clients. Epazz's BoxesOS also serves as a secure digital marketplace for various types of commerce, allowing the company to meet the increasing information technology demands of the 21st century.

In addition to its BoxesOS administrative services, Epazz offers a full end-user suite of solutions designed to maximize communication and functionality with full-featured web-based intranet software. Leveraging these offerings, the company's clients gain secure access and administrative control to customized features based on their unique needs. For businesses, the value of implementing these services can be tremendous. According to data from the McKinsey Global Institute, productivity improves by as much as 25 percent in organizations with connected employees. Studying just four commercial sectors (consumer packaged goods, retail financial services, advanced manufacturing and professional services), McKinsey estimates that the fiscal contributions of implementing effective intranet solutions could amount to as much as $1.3 trillion annually.

BoxesOS also allows companies to enhance communications with stakeholders by providing one-stop access to elegant, web-enabled information dashboards designed for specific user groups. Offering the ability to create unique dashboards for each stakeholder group addresses one of the most prominent issues facing workplace intranet projects – lack of engagement. Industry data suggest that properly engaging three core types of stakeholders, including executives, implementers and users, as well as the many sub-types within each of those groups, is key to the successful implementation of digital workplace solutions.

Outside of its business software solutions, Epazz is currently addressing a rising demand in the legal cannabis industry through its ZenaPay payment system. While banks remain hesitant regarding the legality of state-approved cannabis programs, dispensaries and related businesses have been compelled to operate on a cash-only basis, creating both security concerns and inconvenience for their customers. With ZenaPay, Epazz seeks to eliminate this issue by relying on the widely-used bitcoin cryptocurrency to provide an alternative to cash transactions. These efforts are particularly intriguing when studying the forward projections associated with marijuana sales. Per ArcView Market Research, North American marijuana sales grew by an unprecedented 30 percent in 2016 to $6.7 billion, and this figure is expected to top $20.2 billion by 2021.

Epazz is led by founder, chairman and CEO Shaun Passley, Ph.D. Founding the company in February 1999, Passley has been the guiding force behind Epazz's software and product development, as well as its continuing development of future products and services. Passley is joined on the Epazz management team by Raymond Kennedy, director of sales. Kennedy has more than two decades of experience in enterprise software sales, having previously served as marketing director for HCM, Inc., where he established six new sales territories and increased overall sales by more than 30 percent.

Kootenay Zinc Corp. (CSE:ZNK) (OTCQB:KTNNF)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight Kootenay Zinc Corp. (KTNNF). Today, Kootenay Zinc Corp. closed trading at $0.0749, up 7.00%, on 102,943 volume with 11 trades. The stock’s average daily volume over the past 60 days is 95,524, and its 52-week low/high is $0.07/$0.59.

Kootenay Zinc Corp. (KTNNF) is a mineral exploration and development company focused on discovering large-scale sedimentary-exhalative ("SEDEX") zinc deposits. Based in Vancouver, British Columbia, the company is ideally positioned near its primary target, the Sully Property, located 18 miles east of the world-class Sullivan Mine.

Of the 22 raw materials tracked by the Bloomberg Commodity Index, zinc was the best-performing base metal in 2016. Based on a widening global supply deficit, outlook for the commodity remains strong. As the most closely tied base metal to the Chinese economy, zinc demand and prices are expected to rise well into the year 2020, putting increased pressure on zinc supply.

For 2017, Goldman Sachs has predicted a 360,000 ton shortage of zinc, along with a subsequent rise in zinc prices to $2,500 per metric ton in the first half of the year. Zinc continues to make history in the metals exchange, driving significant interest in the market amid supply constraints in concentrates and refined metal drive prices.

Ready to claim its share of the market, Kootenay Zinc is focused on its Sully Property. It comprises 1,375 hectares and overlies rocks of similar age and origin as those which host the legendary Sullivan deposit. The Sullivan mine was discovered in 1892, and is known to be one of the world's largest SEDEX deposits. Over its 100-year lifetime, Sullivan produced approximately 150 million tonnes of ore, including approximately 300 million ounces of silver, 8 million tonnes of zinc and 8 million tonnes of lead.

Notably, geophysical data suggests that Kootenay Zinc's Sully project and Sullivan share many geological features:

  • Strata at Sully are in the same sedimentary basin as the Sullivan mine
  • The exact stratigraphic time horizon at which Sullivan formed is present at Sully
  • Filtered AeroMag anomalies coincident with Sullivan Time at Sully appear similar to Sullivan
  • Gravity anomaly at Sully indicates excess mass of comparable magnitude to Sullivan
  • Pb-Zn is present as traces in outcrop, drill core and in a soil geochemical anomaly

The squeeze in zinc supplies particularly affects China, which is both the world's largest zinc consumer and its largest producer, with 4.9 million tons of output in 2015. Chinese manufacturers are now being forced to import zinc for use in cars, household appliances, paints, rubber products and smartphones.

Zinc's rally shows no sign of slowing down in the near future, and companies that currently occupy stake in a zinc deposit find themselves in an enviable position over miners rushing to find new reserves. With its Sully Project, Kootenay Zinc could be on track to capture its share of the market, guided by a management team of mining directors and executives that currently lead some of the world's best mining companies and have been involved in world-class discoveries which sold for billions of dollars. The company's technical team includes industry experts that have worked on mega-mining projects, including the Sullivan and Voisey Bay projects. Disclaimer

Algae Dynamics Corp. (ADYNF)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight Algae Dynamics Corp. (ADYNF). Today, Algae Dynamics Corp. closed trading at $0.09, even for the day. The stock’s average daily volume over the past 60 days is 9,628 and its 52-week low/high is $0.0001/$0.62.

Algae Dynamics Corp. (ADYNF) is focused on developing proprietary research and products involving botanical oils derived from cannabis and algae.

The original core of the company's product development strategy was the extraction of Omega-3 fatty acids from certain strains of algae with high concentrations of DHA to create various nutraceutical products. As a result of the many demonstrated health benefits of other botanical oils, most notably cannabis oil, Algae Dynamics developed a strategy aimed at developing products that combined the health benefits of algae and cannabis oils. Capitalizing on the burgeoning demand for cannabis oil and other smoke-free alternatives to marijuana consumption will help support ongoing initiatives to create and market research-driven product formulations.

Although the company is publicly traded in the U.S., business is conducted in Canada with no exposure to U.S. federal regulation involving cannabis. The Canadian cannabis oil extraction marketplace is projected to grow from C$1 million in 2015 to C$1.7 billion in 2020, which is more than a 1,000-fold increase. With the Government of Canada indicating a target date for full legalization on or before July 2018, numerous opportunities for sales in extracts and oils will open up very soon.

Using Colorado as a comparable example, a study performed by Mackie Research Capital found that 45% of dried marijuana users in the state would eventually convert to marijuana extracts and oils. This is because most consumers taking cannabis for medical purposes are increasingly looking for delivery systems that do not involve smoking marijuana. The market's attractiveness can be further realized when considering that the Canada's licensed producer marketplace is far less competitive with 45 current licensed producers for the whole country vs. 624 licensed cultivators in Colorado.

Collaborating with prominent Canadian universities is a core part of the Algae Dynamics' plan to bolster cannabis extraction expertise, develop premium products and add to its portfolio of intellectual property. Through its agreements with the University of Waterloo and the University of Western Ontario, the company is focusing primarily on the use of extracts from cannabis oil and algae oil in the context of cancer as well as the development of new pharmacotherapies for mental health.

Near-term goals include expanding research and development work with existing and new Canadian universities, securing supply/service agreements with licensed producers, and submitting an application to Health Canada to become a licensed producer of medical marijuana and ultimately have a license to sell products derived from cannabinoids. Algae Dynamics also owns a proprietary technology for the cultivation of low cost, highly pure algae biomass, which will be developed as a vertical integration strategy in the future to support the need to source algae oil for research-driven product formulations. The management team leading these initiatives has nearly a century of beneficial experience spanning from management and process experience to successful fund raising and commercialization.

As part of its key objective to be the #1 research Canadian cannabis oil research-driven product formulator, the company has also formed a strong team of scientific and strategic advisors that complement ongoing R&D relationships and initiatives. Individuals who support the company's initiatives include Dr. Jonathan Blay PhD, FRSB, FIBMS, Csci, CBiol, who performs research and product development on cannabis oil and its constituents in the context of colorectum, pancreas, breast and prostate cancers; and Dr. Steven Laviolette, BSc, PhD, who performs research and product development on cannabis oil and its constituents in the context of depression, post-traumatic stress disorder, anxiety and schizophrenia.

With such a strong foundation laid in the areas being pursued, Algae Dynamics is well positioned to execute on its carefully developed business plan to fast-track to revenue growth while having a longer-term strategy to build a sustainable enterprise-building opportunity in a rapidly expanding market.
