Buzz on the Bullboards: New Rising Opportunities


Stockhouse Editorial

There has been a lot of attention on the tech sector and the stocks working in that marketplace as of late. Despite market volatility, the tech-heavy Nasdaq has displayed much growth this year as it dug itself out of the COVID hole that had investors and the markets at large panicking in March.

Nasdaq stock chart via Google - Jan 2020 to Oct 2020:



Stockhouse’s Tech Bullboards has seen its fair share of chatter around this market activity, but also the work being done among some of these companies that touch every other sector out there, from medical, to industrial, and even cannabis.

This last week, Bullboarders have been generally interested to see what has been developing with telehealth company CloudMD Software & Services Inc. (TSX-V: DOC, Forum) after announcing some acquisitions are on the way.

T-DOC’s leadership team has said it is going to purchase a majority interest in a leading cloud-based provider of fully integrated solutions, Benchmark Systems Inc.

Benchmark has a system to automate healthcare workflow processes including revenue management, practice management and electronic records management. CloudMD will purchase 87.5% of Benchmark from Benchmark’s parent company and global healthcare and AI leader, AntWorks Inc.

CloudMD is also out to acquire 100% of Snapclarity Inc., a provider of an on-demand digital platform that provides an assessment for mental health disorders resulting in a personalized care plan, access to online resources, a clinical health care team and the ability to match to the right therapists.



Last week, we told you about how Datametrex AI Ltd. (TSX-V: DM, Forum) has been providing its COVID-19 tests with test kits and related services to film crews working in Vancouver’s movie and TV industry, like the new “Are You Afraid of the Dark”, crew.

The artificial intelligence and machine learning tech company now has a new customer to talk about and it is one of the world's largest media and entertainment groups for its theatrical film and TV shows in both Vancouver and Toronto. While Datametrex wouldn’t say who the new client is, the company mentioned that it is anticipating more than $20 million in revenue for the first nine months.

Having just seen its share debut on the OTCQB Venture Market, Loop Insights Inc. (TSX-V: MTRX, Forum) announced this week that it had signed a non-exclusive license agreement with Austin, TX based startup CasaPerks LLC to use various aspects of its own technology in a $1,930,000 cash and share deal.

In the nearly eight months since the March 2020 market cratering, Loop Insights’ shares have had a rocky, but upward climb.

It seems to be getting more common that we are seeing company stocks reviving some value lost since the COVID-induced market plummet in March, but appearances in special cases may not indicate the economy’s trend as a whole. This brings us to this week’s Stockhouse Editorial poll question … Do you think North American markets are healthy right now? Click the image below to cast your vote.




Last week’s poll asked if you were impressed by the much-hyped “Battery Day” festivities that Tesla put on. A solid majority followed much of the cynicism felt around the internet toward the event and the announcements.




When it comes to expecting less, the public was already critical of Aurora Cannabis Inc. (TSX: ACB, Forum)’s fiscal Q4 2020 revenue results coming in as a loss before the news even crossed the wire, but it means people were still talking about the cannabis company, what with ACB topping the Bullboards once again. Investors will likely find out more about this at the company’s upcoming annual general and special meeting on Thursday, November 12th, 2020 at 10:00 AM (Mountain Time).





Canopy Growth Corp. (TSX: WEED, Forum) just amended an agreement on its acquisition of all the issued and outstanding fixed shares of Acreage Holdings Inc., a vertically integrated, multi-state operator of cannabis ‎licenses and assets in the US.

Toronto-based Aleafia Health Inc.(TSX-V: ALEF) announced a suite of products that includes its formal entry into the Cannabis 2.0 market. Aleafia said it will begin selling vape cartridges to both the medical and recreational markets, as well as producing cannabis-infused sublingual strips and confectionary edibles.

The company also said it plans to expand its dried flower offerings. Aleafia is expected to harvest its outdoor cultivation sometime next month over its 86-acre property in Port Perry, ON which could produce more than 50,000 kilograms of cannabis.

One company that has seen a surge in interest on the Bullboards is HPQ Silicon Resources Inc. (TSX-V: HPQ, Forum), a Montréal-based producer of Innovative Silicon Solutions, building a portfolio of unique high value specialty silicon products needed for the anticipated renewable energy revolution.

After closing a $2.4 million non-brokered private placement with PyroGenesis Canada Inc. (TSX-V: PYR, Forum), HPQ announced this week that its subsidiary, HPQ Nano Silicon Powders inc. had received its first request for Spherical Nano Silicon powders to be produced by the PUREVA Nano Silicon Reactor from a major automobile manufacturer.





Working in BC’s “Golden Triangle”, American Creek Resources Ltd. (TSX-V: AMK, Forum) entered into amended and restated property option agreements this week with respect to its Silver Side property, the Ample Goldmax property and the Glitter King property.

Lithium is a magnetic topic among the Metals and Mining Bullboards and Cypress Development Corp. (TSX-V: CYP, Forum) seems to have gained new fans after releasing details on its project proposal submissions to the Department of Energy, Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy around two lithium projects and their work over the next three years.

One is a collaboration with the University of Utah, Colorado School of Mines, and Cornell University, and will assess highly selective resource independent lithium extraction processes technology that will demonstrate the use of Next Generation Lithium Ion Sieve Technology (NGLIST) as an innovative and low-impact processing method for recovering lithium including lithium contained in clay minerals.

The other project will be done in partnership with the University of Utah, Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, and Cornell University, studying novel and adaptive amino acid looping strategies for directing lithium carbonate synthesis by using CO2.

In the company’s news release, its chief metallurgist, Todd S Fayram said, “Successful completion of either project will allow for more efficient utilization and lower cost recovery of lithium including from the claystone resources in Cypress’ deposit in Clayton Valley, Nevada”.
