Moxian, Inc. (NASDAQ: MOXC) Shifts to Joint Venture Strategy in Effort to Penetrate Key Markets in China

  • Crystal Equity Research, encouraged by new joint venture strategy, forecasts rising revenue for Moxian (http://dtn.fm/Q8Fva)
  • Key to market growth is UnionPay’s payment module in Moxian+ app
  • MOXC now targets larger $2-4 million businesses for Moxian+ Merchant app sales

Moxian, Inc. (NASDAQ: MOXC) has changed its business strategy to grow more quickly within China, targeting the nation’s top four markets while also beginning to utilize a joint venture strategy in order to penetrate these markets more efficiently with the aid of entrenched businesses. MOXC’s marketing and sales team members are now acting as sales managers, working with independent agents to secure higher volume.

MOXC, an integrated platform operator focused on processing digital payments, is converting its unpaid platforms to paid platforms. Key to its new strategy is MOXC’s relationship with China’s dominant payment processor, UnionPay. A UnionPay processing module on the Moxian+ platform is critical in allowing MOXC to attract new joint venture partners in China and neighboring Asian markets. Now, the Moxian+ Merchant platform offers digital processing modules for UnionPay, Alipay, and WeChatPay.

“We anticipate revising our revenue estimates upward when Moxian confirms the formalization of the joint venture with Shewn International,” the Crystal Equity Research report said. It now projects MOXC revenues at $2.3 million by FY2018.

Crystal Equity Research sees the joint ventures as strengthening and making more efficient Moxian’s plans to penetrate the markets of Beijing, Shanghai, Shenzhen, and Guangzhou. “We view it as an important catalyst for valuation,” the report said. It added that such joint ventures could raise investor confidence in the company and result in higher valuation of shares.

The joint venture with Shewn International Group of Shanghai gives MOXC a new revenue stream from a percentage earned on all its processing of payments from Shewn. Further, Crystal Equity Research notes that MOXC is burning less cash with the new joint venture strategy. It noted that the company used only $1.3 million in cash during the quarter ended June 2017 versus the $5.4 million the company spent in the prior quarter. The reduction was attributed to reduced selling, general and administrative (SG&A) costs with the new tactics.

Shewn International, in addition to its fine wine sales in wine clubs, also plans to open as many as 500,000 new vending machines across China to sell its fine wines. Affluent residents of luxury apartment complexes, Shewn believes, will react positively to the convenience of buying its upscale wines, offered at the correct temperature and humidity, from these machines.

Net Element (NASDAQ: NETE) and the Growing Value of the Payments Processing Business

  • Non-bank payment processing at $1.2 trillion, with 12.8% CAGR forecast through 2021
  • Large bank takeovers already underway
  • NETE operating the right business in the right sector at the right time

Savvy investors always look to capitalize on hot sectors of the market and often single out potential winners in such uptrend niches. Short-term traders and long-term investors alike seek out stocks in sectors on the upswing and aim to position themselves prior to large upside moves. Though it may be perceived as mundane, payment processing is proving to be a just hot growth sector grabbing global investor attention.

A recent article published by MarketWatch (http://dtn.fm/0mPnD) clarified the opportunity. Preliminary takeover approaches from J.P. Morgan Chase & Co. (NYSE: JPM) spurred frenzied interest in payment processor Worldpay Group PLC (OTC: WPYGY) and rapidly drove its stock to new highs. More importantly, this activity highlighted the growing value of the payments processing business.

In the MarketWatch piece, Ken Odeluga, a market analyst at City Index, stated, “Interest by the U.S.’s largest bank, J.P. Morgan, points to an identification of digital-payment processing as one of highest potential spheres of remaining growth in financial services, particularly if we assume that retail banking in Western markets is near saturation point.”

This becomes even more apparent when realizing that total digital payment transactions outside of conventional providers like banks are projected to be worth roughly $740 billion this year and are expected to increase at a compound annual growth rate of 12.8% through 2021, exceeding $1.2 trillion by the end of the period.

Net Element, Inc. (NASDAQ: NETE), a technology-driven mobile payments and transactional services company, is perfectly positioned is this explosive sector and poised to capitalize on this growth curve. Net Element provides turn-key services, including the technology and services required for cashless transactions, to small- and medium-sized businesses throughout the United States and in select international markets. The company’s products and services include mobile payments, value-added services, marketing solutions and business analytics. Through its wholly-owned group of companies, Net Element’s global divisions support electronic payments acceptance in an omni-channel environment spanning across point-of-sale, e-commerce and mobile devices.

The South Florida Business Journal recognized Net Element as one of the fastest growing technology companies in the United States last year, and, in 2012, the company’s Unified Payments division was named the fastest-growing private company in America by Inc. magazine. Already exhibiting strong domestic growth, the company added a record number of merchants to its customer base in Q1 2017, and Net Element is simultaneously launching expanded international efforts. With significant footprints already established in select international markets, Net Element expects to broaden its global presence by leveraging its omni-channel platform into targeted emerging markets.

At first blush, payment processing doesn’t seem like an exciting investment opportunity, but don’t try to convince the shareholders of Worldpay, who just enjoyed a 33% surge in share price. Payment processing is proving to be one of the highest potential spheres of growth in the financial services arena. As the value becomes more recognized, it’s easy to envision Net Element as the next beneficiary of this growth and a subsequent surge in value.

MissionIRNewsBreaks – India Globalization Capital (NYSE: IGC) a Dark Horse in the Race to Treat Alzheimer’s

Alzheimer’s is the most expensive disease in the United States, and pharmaceutical companies are racing to find viable treatments for this devastating disease, which currently affects more than 5.3 million Americans and their loved ones. Wall Street is placing bets on who will win the race to treat Alzheimer’s, and India Globalization Capital (NYSE MKT: IGC) is one promising candidate with a compelling patent-pending treatment protocol. An excerpt from an article further discussing this reads: “IGC is a pioneer in the development of new classes of phytocannabinoid pharmaceuticals with broad therapeutic applications for both humans and animals. IGC’s pipeline of patented and patent pending therapeutics includes treatments for pain, post-traumatic stress disorder, cachexia, neurologic disorders, Parkinson’s, and, now, Alzheimer’s disease. IGC recently acquired the exclusive rights to its novel THC-based treatment for Alzheimer’s disease from the University of South Florida (http://www.igcinc.us/alzheimers-disease/). The patent identifies discovery of a new pathway in which low doses of THC bind to amyloid beta plaques and prevent those plaques from aggregating on neurons, which is exactly what occurs in Alzheimer’s disease and causes cognitive decline.”

Moxian, Inc. (NASDAQ: MOXC) Ready for a 75% Upside Ride?

  • Crystal Equity Research maintains $5.25 price target for Moxian
  • 75% upside from current price
  • Price appreciation could be even higher depending on paid user conversions

Crystal Equity Research published a research report on Moxian, Inc. (NASDAQ: MOXC) in January 2017 and identified a price target of $5.25 for the company. The price target remained unchanged at $5.25 in the August 15 updated report from Crystal Equity, and the report categorized an investment in Moxian as a speculative buy (http://dtn.fm/AmU79). Currently trading near $3.00 per share, reaching the research projection would equate to a 75 percent upside ride for Moxian. That’s the kind of speculative return sought by most investors.

The Crystal Equity Research report highlighted areas of Moxian’s business that could be catalysts for even greater price appreciation. The report cites the company’s memorandum of understanding with Shewn International Group in Shanghai aimed at a joint venture featuring Shewn’s fine wine clubs and using Moxian+ online-to-offline technology. This proposed joint venture with Shewn is an example of a change in market penetration tactics by Moxian, emphasizing pacts with enterprises needing Moxian+ platform payments or any of the unique CRM features created by Moxian. Moxian would earn fees based on a percentage of digital payments traffic by Shewn customers on the Moxian+ platform.

Moxian, Inc. caters to and focuses on the new Chinese consumer and, importantly, bridges e-commerce to brick-and-mortar retail. Moxian provides small- and medium-sized brick-and-mortar businesses with cutting-edge turnkey solutions to attract and maintain customers. Free to the consumer, Moxian’s creative and socially interactive online platforms and mobile applications are moving the burgeoning Chinese consumer from online views to retail purchases at Moxian’s brick-and-mortar retail client locations. Moxian’s seductive social network integrates social media and business into a single platform that offers products, features and services that appeal to consumers, keeping them engaged and referring new customers.

The company’s ingenious online platforms and mobile applications, the Moxian+ User app and the Moxian+ Business app, allow businesses to interface with both new and existing customers. These online interactions provide each business the data to analyze consumer likes, dislikes and trends, providing Moxian’s business customers with invaluable consumer information and a real-time, state-of –the-art CRM. Moxian is in the midst of converting its unpaid platforms to paid, reflected in its joint venture with upscale wine distributor Shewn. This conversion could significantly enhance Crystal Equity’s price target.

One line on the home page of Crystal Equity Research’s website says, “INSIGHT FOR ALPHA RETURNS”. Crystal has set and maintained a target of $5.25 on shares of Moxian, representing a 75 percent upside from the current price. If the conversion to paid users goes as planned, alpha returns could be in the bank.

India Globalization Capital, Inc. (NYSE: IGC) Growth Potential Fueled by Phytocannabinoid Treatments

  • Hyalolex for Alzheimer’s and other cannabis-based drugs for pain, epilepsy, and more are raising the market valuation growth potential for IGC
  • Phytocannabinoids target protein receptors in the brain, peripheral nervous system and other parts of the body, including the lungs, liver, and other organs
  • Cannabidiol makes up as much as 40 percent of cannabis-plant extract and has more potential medical uses than THC

Cannabinoid receptors have been known in the medical community since 1988. India Globalization Capital, Inc. (NYSE MKT: IGC) is the first company to develop revolutionary cannabis-based pharmaceuticals targeting Alzheimer’s. Based on this alone, the company’s market valuation growth potential is high, given the possibilities now recognized for these compounds. IGC has a deep pipeline of products, including recently announced therapies such as IGC-501, for arthritic and neuropathic pain; IGC-502 for canine seizures; and IGC-504 for cachexia, a syndrome often associated with debilitating diseases such as multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s and cancer.

The potential for growth is strong, as cannabis companies such as Anavex Life Sciences Corp. (NASDAQ: AVXL), AC Immune Ltd. (NASDAQ: ACIU) and others have seen market valuations in the hundreds of millions of dollars and even higher.

While there is no cure for Alzhimer’s, therapies, such as the one IGC is pursuing for Alzheimer’s, hold promise in addressing the disease. Phytocannabinoid treatments are also effective because of the protein receptors in the brain and other tissues of the body. There are several different types; one includes the G protein-coupled receptor family, activated by endocannabinoids the body synthesizes when under stress. These receptors play a role in pain modulation, appetite, mood, and even memory.

There are also CB1 receptors, which are thought to be expressed at the synapses in the brain. They have also been found in the peripheral nerves and in muscle, liver, and lung tissue, as well as in fat. Aside from being associated with pain regulation, these cannabinoid receptors have effects on emotion, sensory perception, memory, cognition, and movement. Some autonomous functions are affected as well. Found in the immune system, CB2 receptors have anti-inflammatory properties and other functions, being based in T cells and B cells. They have also been found in macrophages and hematopoietic cells.

Evidence suggests there are more types of cannabinoid receptors. The known types are activated naturally by endocannabinoids but can also be stimulated by compounds found in cannabis plants and by synthetic cannabinoids, which helped researchers identify the receptors in the first place.

Until recently, it was tetrahydrocannabinol that had the attention of mainstream media, known for its psychotropic effects. However, cannabidiol (CBD), which constitutes up to 40 percent of plant extracts, seems to have more medical applications. It’s widely believed to have anti-psychotic, anti-depressive, anxiety-reducing, and anti-convulsive effects. Therefore, CBD has the potential to be useful to the 50 million people around the world with refractory, or drug resistant, epilepsy; the 1.3 million individuals in the United States affected by cachexia every year; the 5.3 million people in the country with Alzheimer’s disease; and the millions who suffer from chronic pain.

Net Element (NASDAQ: NETE) Maintains Listing following Meeting with Nasdaq Hearings Panel

  • Nasdaq Hearings Panel grants decision on listing based on shareholder equity and minimum bid issues, conditional on NETE providing evidence of compliance by October 20, 2017
  • NETE says impact of its cost cutting program should be realized by the third quarter of 2017
  • Zack’s Research Report projects that NETE will generate sales of $74.6 million by FY2018

Net Element, Inc.’s (NASDAQ: NETE) common stock will continue to be traded on the Nasdaq Capital Market after the company met with the exchange’s Nasdaq Hearings Panel. The panel’s decision to grant the company’s request is conditional on NETE providing evidence of compliance with Nasdaq’s regulations by October 20, 2017, as noted by the company in a news release (http://dtn.fm/AN4sa).

NETE is a cloud-based financial company that accepts electronic payments in an omni-channel environment. The payments are processed at point-of-sale and on mobile devices. The firm also offers management tools for clients. A Zack’s Research report projected that NETE would generate $74.6 million in sales by 2018 (http://dtn.fm/6HWor).

NETE received an initial letter from Nasdaq explaining that, because the company was no longer in compliance with its regulations concerning shareholders’ equity and minimum bid price, its stock would be delisted. In a meeting afterward, NETE presented its plan for Nasdaq regulation compliance on both issues.

“We are working diligently to comply with Nasdaq’s listing requirements while improving shareholder value,” Oleg Firer, chief executive officer of NETE, stated in a news release. However, the company said there can be no assurance it will cure its stockholders’ equity or bid price deficiencies.

Nasdaq requires $2.5 million in shareholder equity. The exchange cited NETE’s shareholder equity of only $1,975,435 for the quarter ended June 30. The exchange also has a regulation requiring a $1 minimum bid.

In a July 2017 letter to shareholders, NETE said its institution of a cost cutting program should be realized by the third quarter of 2017.

Exciting Potential for Growth Fuels Net Element (NASDAQ: NETE) as E-commerce and Consumers Converge

  • 2017 second quarter net revenues up 18 percent to $16.1 million
  • PayOnline, a flexible e-commerce payment solutions platform, launches in U.S.
  • Net Element is strategically poised for growth in the U.S. and emerging countries

Mobile-based purchasing by the world’s consumers is booming thanks to smartphones and other portable devices. Net Element (NASDAQ: NETE) is tapping into that expanding e-commerce world with its focus on small- to medium-sized businesses in the United States and select emerging markets.

Florida-based Net Element is a global financial technology company delivering a wide range of value-added solutions that support electronic payments in an omni-channel environment that spans point-of-sale, e-commerce, and mobile devices.

Its PayOnline subsidiary, launched July 2017 in the United States, supports more than 100 payment methods in as many currencies, in addition to credit card acceptance, and it is certified with most payment processors in the United States and globally.

PayOnline’s Instant Payment Module utilizes chat-bots with four popular instant messaging apps to help retailers interact with consumers, which Net Element believes represents a global opportunity for the company.

This major consumer habit of buying online, fueled by millennials, bodes well for Net Element and its long-term growth opportunities as e-commerce markets expand.

An online retail forecast from Forrester, cited by Digital Commerce 360, predicts that U.S. shoppers will splurge on nearly $460 billion in online sales in 2017, proving the global marketplace is ripe for Net Element’s ideas (http://dtn.fm/w4DoU).

“We are pleased with our continued growth. Our results are a reflection of our ability to deliver growth,” Oleg Firer, CEO of Net Element, said prior to the company’s August 15 conference call to discuss second quarter 2017 financial results and business highlights. “We are excited about our strategic initiatives for the remainder of the year as we continue to streamline international operations and reduce operating expenses while managing the strong U.S. growth and expansion.”

India Globalization Capital, Inc. (NYSE: IGC) – The Pros are Already Picking Horses

  • Alzheimer’s is America’s most expensive disease, with a new diagnosis every 66 seconds
  • IGC’s unique use of marijuana extracts in combination therapy for potential Alzheimer’s breakthrough shows promise
  • Low market cap could make IGC a big winner for early investors

Alzheimer’s disease is one of the greatest medical, ethical, and financial challenges facing society today. Currently, more than 5.3 million Americans and their families have to deal with Alzheimer’s disease, and projections suggest that number will nearly triple to 14 million Americans by 2050. Globally, the figures are even more staggering, with about 47 million people worldwide currently diagnosed and projections at 132 million in less than three decades. Right now, someone in America develops Alzheimer’s every 66 seconds, and soon, this deadly diagnosis is expected to occur every 33 seconds.

Alzheimer’s is already the country’s most expensive disease. In 2016 U.S. costs totaled $236 billion and global costs exceeded $600 billion. These figures will skyrocket unless scientists develop new approaches to prevent or cure this insidious disease. Given the magnitude of the problem, pharmaceutical companies are scrambling to find ways to mitigate the disease’s devastation.

With so much on the line, it’s no wonder that Wall Street has already started to place bets on who might be a winner in this race. In this vein, Goldman Sachs recently highlighted Biogen (NASDAQ: BIIB) and its lead pipeline Alzheimer’s drug as one of the first to possibly prevent or slow the progression of the disease (http://dtn.fm/QoqT5). Goldman pegged potential drug sales at over $12 billion and targeted the $60 billion market cap stock at a 17 percent premium, if successful. However, everyone knows there are no guaranteed winners in this race. A broad spectrum of options must be considered if investors want to participate in the enormous upside potential of an effective Alzheimer’s treatment.

One compelling candidate with a promising patent pending Alzheimer’s treatment protocol and ridiculously low market valuation is India Globalization Capital (NYSE MKT: IGC). IGC is a pioneer in the development of new classes of phytocannabinoid pharmaceuticals with broad therapeutic applications for both humans and animals. IGC’s pipeline of patented and patent pending therapeutics include treatments for pain, post-traumatic stress disorder, cachexia, neurologic disorders, Parkinson’s, and, now, Alzheimer’s disease.

IGC recently acquired the exclusive rights to its novel THC-based treatment for Alzheimer’s disease from the University of South Florida (http://www.igcinc.us/alzheimers-disease/). The patent identifies discovery of a new pathway in which low doses of THC bind to amyloid beta plaques and prevent those plaques from aggregating on neurons, which is exactly what occurs in Alzheimer’s disease and causes cognitive decline.

IGC plans to enter clinical trials this year on its potential cannabis-based blockbuster treatment for Alzheimer’s, as well as on the company’s primary pipeline of other major therapeutics that address large market maladies. Any one of these trials could provide breakthrough treatments for previously untreatable disease. With a market capitalization currently around $10 million, IGC is one very interesting bet investors may want to place in this race for an effective Alzheimer’s treatment. Any positive results from the clinical trials could easily catapult valuation and make IGC a big winner for early investors.

MissionIRNewsBreaks – Crystal Equity Research Reaffirms Price Target of $5.25 for Moxian, Inc. (NASDAQ: MOXC)

In January 2017, Crystal Equity Research LLC published an initial report on Moxian, Inc. (NASDAQ: MOXC) with a price target of $5.25, and that price target remains unchanged as of an August 15 updated report from Crystal. Crystal categorized investment in Moxian as a “speculative buy” and made positive note of the company’s joint venture with Shewn International Group in Shanghai, also stating it anticipates revising its revenue estimates for Moxian upward when the Shewn transaction is formalized. As noted in a recent NNW article:

“Moxian is an integrated platform operator in the midst of converting its unpaid platforms to paid. Its joint venture with upscale wine distributor Shewn — expected by Crystal Equity to be finalized by the end of September 2017 — calls for Shewn to use Moxian+ Merchant App technology. It uses a UnionPay module processing system and offers Moxian’s Mo-Points redemption plan. In return, Shewn offers Moxian quicker and less costly market penetration and an additional revenue stream. Moxian will earn a fee on Shewn’s digital sales processed on the Moxian+ platform. ‘Execution on the Shewn International joint venture should put greater certainty into the Moxian story, providing the foundation for greater investor confidence and a higher valuation of the shares. We view it as an important catalyst for valuation. In our view, the stock provides an interesting play on China’s e-commerce industry,’ the report said.”
