What Happened to Cellceutix Corp (OTCMKTS:CTIX)

Published

on

Cellceutix Corp (OTCMKTS:CTIX) continues to trade just over $1 a share on moderate volume in recent weeks. Investors are looking for a comeback on this one and a return to its glory days of 2014.

CTIX is the biotech that rose from pennies to a high of $4.93 last December before the whole thing collapsed. Mako Research published a number of false and misleading hit pieces on Seeking Alpha that are now subject to an ongoing lawsuit as Mako has gone dark.

Cellceutix Corp (OTCMKTS:CTIX) is a clinical stage biopharmaceutical company developing innovative therapies in oncology, dermatology and antimicrobial applications. Cellceutix believes it has a world-class portfolio of compounds and is now engaged in advancing its compounds and seeking strategic partnerships.

Cellceutix was granted Fast Track Designation for Brilacidin-OM, an oral rinse formulation of the Company’s novel defensin-mimetic Brilacidin, for the prevention of oral mucositis. Oral mucositis, a common and often debilitating inflammation and ulceration that occurs in the mouth as a side-effect of certain cancer treatments, afflicts approximately 450,000 patients each year in the United States and can affect the course and outcome of cancer therapy. There are no FDA approved drugs for the prevention of oral mucositis.

Cellceutix’s anti-cancer drug Kevetrin is currently in a Phase 1 clinical trial at Harvard Cancer Centers’ Dana Farber Cancer Institute and Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center. In the laboratory Kevetrin has shown to induce activation of p53, often referred to as the “Guardian Angel Gene” due to its crucial role in controlling cell mutations.

Cellceutix’s anti-psoriasis drug Prurisol is in a Phase 2 trial. Prurisol is a small molecule that acts through immune modulation and PRINS reduction.

It all comes back to Cellceutix chief scientific officer, Dr. Krishna Menon; the man is a real whiz; he played key roles in developing two blockbuster cancer drugs; Gemzar and Alimta for Eli Lilly & Co.(NYSE:LLY) back in the late 90’s.

For CTIX he developed Kevetrin which just received Orphan Drug Designation for the treatment of ovarian cancer.. Kevetrin is successful in regulating the p53 pathway that has long been the holy grail of cancer research and big pharma. Industry leaders spent hundreds of millions of dollars trying to achieve what Dr. Krishna Menon has achieved with Kevetrin.

As anyone in the industry knows, regulating the p53 pathway has long been the holy grail of cancer research and big pharma has spent hundreds of millions of dollars researching ways to achieve this with no success thus far. It seems Kevetrin(TM) has accomplished this; extensive preclinical research on Kevetrin shows the re-activation of p53 across a wide spectrum of cancer lines including colon, lung, breast and pancreatic cancers.

If testing is successful, Mr. Ehrlich says the market potential for Kevetrin in treating drug-resistant cancers is worth $5 billion a year. Other cancers could easily represent an additional $5 billion annually, he adds..

On August 6 of last year Mako Research disclosing they were short published the first of a number of false and misleading hit pieces on CTIX claiming ”Cellceutix: Empty Office, Unviable ‘Science’, Misleading Disclosures, 96% Downside” The articles claimed that Cellceutix’s pipeline of drugs in clinical trials are ineffective and the company is essentially without worth. Over the next 6 weeks Mako Research published 5 more articles on Seeking Alpha all with the aim of decimating CTIX share price before the outfit went dark with the last article published on September 23, 2015.

The Mako Research articles were effective, especially the first one on August 5 causing a sharp drop in CTIX’s share value. Later that day the Rosen Law Firm of NYC announced it is investigating potential securities claims on behalf of shareholders of CTIX resulting from allegations that Cellceutix may have issued materially misleading business information to the investing public. It stated that CTIX had misrepresented the efficacy of its drug candidates Brilacidin, Kevetrin, and Prurisol.

In November the FDA granted Fast Track Designation for the Company’s lead drug candidate Brilacidin-OM. According to the release ”In an ongoing Phase 2 trial, Brilacidin-OM is being evaluated for its safety and efficacy in preventing oral mucositis in patients undergoing chemoradiation for the treatment of head and neck cancer. Seven clinical sites and two satellite sites are currently enrolling patients in the trial, with additional sites expected to open enrollment in the coming weeks.”

On July 21 CTIX announced additional information in the ongoing, Phase 2 clinical trial of Brilacidin-OM for the treatment of oral mucositis (OM), a serious and debilitating complication of radiation and chemotherapy for head and neck cancer.

Cellceutix has recently retained several experienced OM consultants and embarked on a rapid expansion of the study with a goal of completing its study enrollment on an expedited basis. The Company also has been advised that a competing OM trial, which announced recently that it is being discontinued, has resulted in the availability of a large number of clinical sites, that are being considered to participate in the Cellceutix trial. Cellceutix expansion of the study assures that it will be working with sites and investigators possessing a keen understanding of the unique challenges of OM trials and a proven track record of reliable patient recruitment and retention.

Currently trading at a $157 million market valuation CTIX has $6 million in the treasury, manageable debt and no revenues to date. The stock was the darling of the bb’s all the way to $4.93 share before the shorts led by Mako Research took it to the woodshed decimated the share price to lows of $0.941. CTIX is the same exciting story it always has been with several drugs in advanced clinical trials sitting on drugs in development that could potentially turn the multi-billion dollar drug-resistant cancers market upside down. The Company also recently announced the FDA granted Fast Track Designation for the Company’s lead drug candidate Brilacidin-OM as well as the conclusion of the last patient visit in its randomized, double-blind Phase 2 trial for Prurisol with top-line data expected in May.

Global Tech Industries Group Inc (GTII) rally could be just getting started

Published

on

Small-cap stocks have seen a significant increase in the first weeks of January, a trend that is often seen at the start of a new year. This presents an opportunity for investors to capitalize on the surge before it dissipates. The Russell 2000 index, which follows small-cap stocks, has shown a 7.4% increase as of Monday’s close, outperforming the large-cap Russell 1000, which has risen by 5%, and the S&P 500, which has increased by 4.5%.

The “January Effect” rally, where small caps surpass large caps, is a common phenomenon. One such stock that may be benefitting from this January effect is GTII. Global Tech Industries Group Inc (GTII) last traded at $1.86 and closed with double-digit gains of 11.08%.  GTII has a 52-week range of $0.4302 – $8.9700, suggesting a tremendous upside potential from the current levels.

Good Vibrations Shoes Inc. (OTCMKTS: GVSI): The OTC Stock To Own In 2023?

Published

on

Good Vibrations Shoes Inc. (OTCMKTS: GVSI) is perhaps the most-talked-about OTC stock to kick off 2023 as a George Sharp reverse merger penny stock.

Good Vibrations Shoes Inc. (OTCMKTS: GVSI) is perhaps the most-talked-about OTC stock to kick off 2023 as a George Sharp reverse merger penny stock. Many say they won’t sell for less than $.50 a share. They are banking on reverse merger whiz George Sharp to deliver the goods like he did when TSNP merged with HUMBL Inc. (OTCMKTS: HMBL).

As everyone knows, George Sharp is the stock whizz behind some of the biggest runners in recent penny stocks history, including the great TSNP and FORW, which also went from under a penny to $1 plus. For the past 17 years, George Sharp has been a consultant to companies in various contexts, including software development, assisting public companies with growth and regulatory compliance plans. In June 2017, Mr. Sharp was engaged as a consultant by OTC Markets Group, Inc. to develop compliance processes to bring more timely and actionable data to the OTC market. Working with OTCMarkets Group as a consultant for many years gives GS a considerable advantage, and if anyone can make things happen with GVSI, it is George Sharp. 

Reverse mergers can be more explosive than biotechs when the incoming Company has real value but is undiscovered to investors, and many RM stocks that we have covered on this website have gone from pennies to dollars. Microcap Daily was one of the first on the scene as TSNP was taking off, reporting on the stock on November 15, 2020 when TSNP was trading at $0.003, stating at the time:

“TSNP is making a spectacular run up the charts in recent weeks, quickly transforming into a volume leader and one of the top most traded stocks in small caps. TSNP started in triple zero land but has gone parabolic since then, quickly attracting legions of new shareholders who continue to bid the stock higher. Reverse Merger stocks (RM) are easily among the most exciting and explosive stocks in small caps rivaling only biotechs in their ability to make historic gains. TSNP is the perfect merger candidate; a clean shell with virtually no debt, and the new Company HUMBL is a major mobile payments player with a first-class management team with team members coming from companies like Western Union, Moneygram, Visa, American Express, Epson, Microsoft, Facebook and Qualcomm and was recently named a Forbes “Rising Startups to Watch” The merger is being shepherded by well-known OTC Markets analyst George Sharp, who brought the parties together and has provided valuable advice on strategies and compliance to complete the transaction.” We concluded, “The whole deal is being shepherded by George Sharp, a reverse merger whizz and someone known for doing it right.”

The Company is a perfect reverse merger candidate with a clean balance sheet of just $250k in liabilities.

GVSI

Latest Updates

GVSI should be Pink Current any day now. The Canadians that sold after GVSI came off the Expert Market will be buying back in. Savvy investors that picked up cheapies under $.025 will be rewarded.

GVSI has also filed to cancel shares.

We also have this agreement between GS and GVSI. These are the shares that, on August 29, 2021, in recognition of the $50,000 cash invested and $50,000 in consulting fees accrued by George Sharp for professional and regulatory costs to reinstate the registrant in the State of Nevada and to have the registrant become current in its filings under the SEC’s recently imposed requirements for public companies operating under SEC Rule 15c2-11, the Board issued 300,000 shares of the authorized “blank check” preferred stock to George Sharp with 10,000 votes for each share of preferred stock to give voting control to Mr. Sharp.

GVSI represents the highest risk-reward in the OTC Markets right now. Some investors have been impatient and sold their shares at these low levels. The key to understanding is that these things take time, TSNP took a long, long time, and GVSI will be all the more exciting. As previously stated, Mr. Sharp was engaged as a consultant by OTC Markets Group, Inc. to develop compliance processes, so if anyone can get it done, he can. Mr. Sharp continues to tweet about GVSI regularly, and it’s listed at the top of his Twitter account. All the uncertainty and bashing have created a unique situation for GVSI; it currently trades under $0.03. If things happen here as GS says they will, this will be one seriously parabolic situation with a massive upside. There are no guarantees on the OTC and no sure thing at all, GVSI is a lottery ticket for sure, but considering GS track record, I would say this is a good ticket. We will update GVSI when more details emerge, so make sure you are subscribed to Microcapdaily to know what’s going on with GVSI.

CeCors Inc (OTCMKTS: CEOS) Opportunity Mushrooms with Disabled Veterans

Published

on

CeCors Inc (OTCMKTS: CEOS) is at heart a mushroom company with products on the shelf that is transforming into a disabled veteran benefits company.  Many have heard of magic mushrooms, psychedelic mushrooms, and psilocybin and their medicinal benefits. One of the biggest consumers of these products is disabled veterans. The core company is PsyKey which is a vertically integrated mushroom company developing medicinal products for healthcare professionals and consumers.  The products come primarily from functional mushrooms that have specific purposes.  Their mushrooms are cleverly mixed with coffee pods as a delivery system that allows people to start their day off right.      

While the company does have modest revenues from the sales of their core products, the sizzle is in the acquisition of VetComm Corp. announced in mid December. The reality was that this binding letter of intent was not taken seriously by market participants until they were beaten over the head with a video with the charismatic CEO of VetComm, Kate Monroe.    

This video outlined her goal of onboarding 1.0 million veterans of the 14 million veterans eligible for disability to get their rating.  If she accomplishes this goal she claims 

“This would put $30 billion per month into the US economy”

The huge problem they are trying to solve is the simplification of the governmental claims process.  These 14 million veterans eligible for benefits simply don’t have the energy to cut through the red tape and get a successful disability rating with the government.  VetCOMM has a seasoned team that essentially handles the rating process for the vets.  All the vets have to do is pay the monthly fee and answer the questions from VetComm.  

1.0 Million Veteran Challenge

Anyone thinking that 1.0 million isn’t attainable is underestimating both the CEO Kate Monroe, a veteran herself from the Marine Corps, and the networking power of veterans. Veterans are a tight knit community.  Think about it some of these vets were sitting in a foxhole and their life depended on their buddy doing his job.  So when these vets sign up for VetComm and get a positive result and then call their buddy up and say trust me you need to do this, there is no waffling around. Vets will listen to other vets.  This video from Randy Couture just shows you a hint of the star power they have behind this company. 

   

The government set aside tens of billions of dollars for disabled veterans but navigating the rating process with the government paper pushers is worse than combat for some of these vets.  They get discouraged and give up, that is where the tenacity of the VetComm team comes into play and knows how to successfully navigate the bureaucratic maze and get results for these veterans. VetComm just takes a flat fee for their service ($247 or $997) and the vets could receive thousands of dollars monthly depending on their level of injury.  There is no reason not to try, and the company has a money back guarantee.  Even more exciting is the back pay some of these vets could receive.  Wait until some of the testimonials go viral.  The website currently has real testimonials from veterans sharing their story of how easy it was to get rated.  The message from VetComm is that there is nothing to lose and almost everyone walks away with something.  

The CEO is a networking guru and has pictures with top politicians and generals all supporting her efforts.  These are top politicians like Senator Ted Cruz, Roger Marshall, Earnest Grassley, John Cornyn, and Deb Fischer. Then there are the celebrity endorsements from Randy Couture, Ken Shamrock, Donald Trump, Jr., Sarah Palin, Matt Thomas of Parmalee, Carl Higbee, and Gretchen Carlson. 

Revenue Estimates

The revenue off of her 1.0 million veteran goal could be $500 million considering that the average fee is about $500 dollars assuming the majority will opt for the do it yourself rating instead of the “Done-For-You” service.  The company has no formal projections but if they do release something it could be a big catalyst. The costs of goods sold on this are marketing and the customer support line.  VetComm is essentially getting a small sliver of the $30 billion monthly pot of money the government has agreed to pay out but hasn’t had to because the veterans haven’t filled out their paperwork.  Kate Monroe is creating a social movement in the veteran community to take what they are owed and not let politicians repurpose those funds for other special interests     

Acquisition Synergy         

There is a sense of community that VetComm is trying to establish.  Many of the vets that suffer from PTSD would be helped by the functional mushroom products.  There is also a planned expansion of the product line that the company alluded to last year.  A natural expansion of the line could mean that other products like gummy bears, capsules, or other delivery systems are introduced.       

Financial Analysis

The company has 332 million shares in the O/S and has 148 million in the float.  The current market cap is sitting at close to $10 million. Since they are an operational company with revenues they had their Shell Status designation removed from OTC Markets.  The company has also openly stated that they are not going to reverse split the stock or take on additional dilution.  This might be interpreted to mean that they won’t exceed the authorized limit of 500 million shares.    

This means the VetComm acquisition is likely to be paid with treasury stock.  In early 2022 87.75 million shares were brought back into treasury and could easily be reissued for the purchase.  This is complete speculation because the details of the acquisition have yet to be released but the bread crumbs lead to a very shareholder friendly transaction.  

Risks

There is a definitive deal to acquire VetComm, but investors are not privy to the terms of the deal. Therein lies the major risk. Investors have no idea how much dilution is possible in the acquisition nor do they know how strong the underlying business is. Dilution would have to be less than the authorized max.  It’s impossible to tell if it’s a good deal or a bad deal, although their comments on social media demonstrate it’s going to be very positive.  Leadership is a question too because there is no CEO at the helm.  The filings show Amar Bhatal is the president and the CEO spot is vacant. While it’s reasonable to speculate that Kate Monroe would be the ideal candidate for CEO, she has no public market experience. If the VetComm acquisition were to fall apart many investors could be holding the bag because the underlying mushroom business has not generated sufficient earnings to support the public listing short term.       

Investor Summary

The volume is just starting to ramp off of what looks like a long term bottom so there doesn’t appear to be much downside at the current stock price and plenty of upside to $.12. The mushroom industry is massive, but a unique opportunity exists in servicing veterans.  VetComm is led by a charismatic CEO who might very well take over CEOS.  Her social media standing suggests that she is going to use digital marketing and the power of veteran networking and endorsements to mobilize the veterans.  This deal can almost be considered a Software as a Service (SaaS) deal as it contains those components.  The goal of attaining 1.0 million veterans by year end could translate into massive revenues in the tens of millions or hundreds of millions with little to no customer acquisition acquisition costs (CAC).  It’s too early to tell, but CEOS is one of those long term fundamental plays that should be held in a speculative portfolio. Should they complete the acquisition and give revenue estimates investors could see long term 12 – 18 month upside up to $1.00 assuming a fully diluted 500 million O/S and $500 million in revenues trading at a multiple of 1X sales. The downside risk is nominal given their rapidly expanding mushroom line that could be cash flow positive on its own this year.
