Black Swan Connection September 2017

Posted By Administration, Friday, September 22, 2017

September 2017


Our goal with the Black Swan Connection is to provide our subscribers, investors and financial professional compatriots outstanding investment insight that is a step above and outside of what will normally be found in mainstream financial press. To that end we have brought together seasoned, successful, and some of the brightest professionals in their respective fields to provide the articles and advice that is based on decades of practice in the field.

Dave Lavigne Editor-Black Swan Connection
Cyber Security

Preface By Dave Lavigne

As some may recall, at the first of the year, Stock Market Manager hosted its first piece of research from my Company Trickle Research. That research covered a Denver, Colorado identity theft company called I.D. Watchdog, Inc. A few months ago, I.D Watchdog was acquired by the credit reporting giant, Equifax, Inc. (NYSE: EFX).  Of course, Equifax has been inauspiciously in the news lately because of a data breach that may have compromised 143 million customers.  Now, even the U.S Congress is involved because (aside from the obvious consumer protection issues) some of the Equifax executives were apparently selling stock in and around the time of the breach. 

What is perhaps most in question is the timing of when Equifax actually discovered the breach.  Apparently, hackers first gained access to Equifax data sometime in May but the Company claims it did not discover the breach until July 29th. Again, some seem to be questioning whether they actually knew about the breach sooner.  Frankly, I am not sure which is worse, getting hacked and not figuring it out for 30 to 60 days, or getting hacked and not telling anyone for 30 to 60 days?  What is of course even more interesting to me specifically, is, did Equifax know about the breach when they made the offer to buy I.D. Watchdog in mid-June?  Recognize, mid-June sits smack dab in the middle of the time the hacking started, and the time Equifax actually said they discovered it and told the rest of the world.  By the way, one of Equifax’s “remedies” for its compromised customers is one free year of credit monitoring. I bet you can guess who will be providing that credit monitoring service…  If my math is correct, ID Watchdog’s cheapest monitoring offer was around $10 per month.  At that rate, if Equifax had to buy credit monitoring for 143 million people instead of providing it through its new subsidiary ID Watchdog, it would cost them $17 billion for a year’s worth… and people thought I was crazy when I said that Equifax’s offer of $63 million for ID Watchdog as too cheap.  Read More


How to Protect Your Identity

SMM has partnered with Generali Global Assistance to provide the most comprehensive and cost effective ID Theft protection available.

By now, you are most likely aware that Equifax, one of the three major consumer credit bureaus in the United States, has reported a widespread data breach, potentially exposing the records of 143 million people.

Unfortunately, we are living in an era where data breaches are becoming increasingly common and it is more important than ever to stay vigilant. Comprehensive, proactive identity and credit monitoring are a critical line of defense in minimizing the risk of identity fraud resulting from personal information exposed during a breach, particularly one of this size.

While data breaches represent highly public examples of identity theft, identity fraud with its long term, time-consuming financial impacts, can occur months or years later. Our Identity Protection program provided by Generali Global Assistance consistently monitors the deep and dark web where stolen personal information is bought and sold, so that if suspicious activity does occur, we can take quick action to minimize the risk and resolve any issues.

Command Center, Inc.    (CCNI)   Initiating Research Coverage   9/18/19

12-24 Month Price Target Range $.80   Allocation  4
Closing Stock Price on 9/15/17            $.1999

Command Center, Inc. (“CCNI”) provides temporary “on-demand” as well as “temp-to-hire” labor services across the U.S. The Company’s focus is in the unskilled or semi-skilled sector of the temporary service market, and as such it serves approximately 3,200 customers in retail, construction, warehousing/industrial, hospitality/events, transportation/auto auction and other related industries. Its business is largely diversified across these various opportunities, so it is generally not concentrated in any one sector. As of this writing, the Company supports 66 stores across 22 states and employs approximatively 34,000 temporary workers.

Command Center has been operating in the temporary labor space for nearly 15 years. The Company was founded in 2002 by the prior founder of industry heavyweight Labor Ready (now called TrueBlue, Inc.), which he built into a billion-dollar enterprise over approximately 10 years before starting Command Center.  Read More

Pulse Evolution Corp.  (PLFX)   Initiating Research Coverage   9/18/19

6 -18 Month Price Target Range $1.15 - $2.30
Closing Stock Price on 9/15/17            $.1999

Pulse Evolution – A Sleeping Giant Awakens

  • Major Production Resulted in Recurring Revenue
  • Qualified CEO Managing Operations
  • Academy Award Nominated Animators
  • Animation Technology Tested and Ready for Prime Time
  • Strategic Investors Fund over $40 million
  • Undervalued Digital Likeness Assets

Pulse Evolution (PLFX) has essentially been in investor hibernation mode for the past 2 years, but that doesn’t mean they have been sleeping.  They are a voluntary filer and chose to stop communicating with most investors while strategic investors silently funded nearly $40 million of technological development.  At a large special effects company this investment wouldn’t have gone far, but the all-star team at PLFX, assembled by former CEO John Textor, worked within this relatively small budget to create hyper realistic digital humans capable of fooling an audience of 11 million TV viewers at the 2014 Music Billboard Award show.  The true value of this technology can be seen at the end of Rogue One with Princes Leia’s CGI cameo that unfortunately for Lucas Films, fooled no one.  Read More

Latest Happenings

Irma is behind us or at least the windy part…….

First of all our best wishes for a speedy recovery and hoping that life can return to normal for those adversely affected. In our case we had power out in our office for a few days and most of our employees as well, but aside from some missing siding and tress, most of us fared pretty well.

Sadly that is not the case for the unfortunate victims in the Caribbean islands and the Florida Keys.

The Caribbean islands directly in the path when Irma was at Cat 5 strength suffered total annihilation. Someone coined the phrase a “nuclear hurricane”. This BBC video from the British Virgin Islands lays it out. BBC Video of BVI destruction. Had the islands been carpet bombed the result wouldn’t be much different.

It will be years before things are rebuilt and lives restored and they will be totally dependent on foreign aid to accomplish that. The Florida Keys reports indicate 1 in 4 houses totally destroyed and 90 % damaged.

Since these tropical paradise locations are primarily dependent on tourism revenue will go to zero and stay that way for some time to come.

Still we were very lucky. Had Irma landed in the US at CAT 5 the damage would have been unimaginable.

One way to help those in need in the Caribbean is to book your next vacation there as soon as a viable location is up and running.

Earlier estimates of $2-300 billion in damage has now been backed down to lows of $50bn to highs of $200bn.

Additional economic fallout will be felt down several chains in the damage pipeline.

Mortgage Defaults


 "There are 1.18 million mortgaged properties in Harvey-related disaster areas, more than twice as many as were hit by Hurricane Katrina, with nearly four times the unpaid principal balance (of $179 billion)," said Graboske. Source Black Knight

“Tropical storm Harvey has put as much as $30bn of securitised industrial mortgages on analysts and buyers watch lists, as harm from the catastrophe has heightened the risk of defaults”. Source


Some $40 billion in securitized commercial mortgages is potentially at risk in Florida, thanks to major damage left behind by Hurricane Irma. Source Morningstar

That is a boat load of mortgage defaults. Fannie Mae will carry some of this load and so will some insurers, but the brunt will be taken by Mortgage backed securities and banks.

Insurance claims

Property damage from Hurricane Irma has been projected at $64 billion to $92 billion by Moody's Analytics.  Following Hurricane Andrew 22 insurance companies failed leaving billions in unpaid claims.

Remaining insurers either left the Sate altogether or raised rates to ridiculous levels. A State sponsored insurer called Citizens was established as an insurer of last resort and a backstop for catastrophic damage.

We’ll see what happens with that. Citizens Reserves are reportedly at only $9 billion.

Business interruption-

Effectively the State of Florida was completely shut down for at least a week. Annual GDP of Florida is $748 billion. Divide that by 52 and you can add another $14.4bn to the overall cost.

All tolled it’s an easy $300bn hit from these two hurricanes and I haven’t added in the damages etc in the Carolinas and Georgia and only a small part of Harvey estimates.

Great Article on the value of Research from our Research Partner Don McDonald at Consilium Research

The Changing Landscape of Capital Markets & the Strategic Role of Research

The traditional model for equity capital markets has changed dramatically over the past 30 years and it is not working anymore.  New regulations, electronic trading, bans of proprietary trading and increased capital requirements has changed the landscape on Wall Street.

In a speech a few years ago, Jamie Dimon of J.P. Morgan Chase noted 30 years ago they trade a share of stock for 15¢, and today 1¢ a share.  At a penny per share how does an investment bank pay an analyst, a salesmen and a sales trader?  The model is broken – Bear Stearns, Lehman Brothers and hundreds of research investment banks that focused on small and mid-cap companies have shut their doors.  The end result is 80% of public companies of market caps below 125 million have no research coverage.

What is the Value of Equity Research?

According to a recent study published in CFA Magazine, the valuation of a security over the long-term consists of: 

  • 10% Market Fluctuation
    • 55% Management Execution
    • 35% Investor Recognition


The value of equity research for all intents and purposes, is recognition – recognition by investors and decision makers who purchase securities. Compared with uncovered peers, companies with equity coverage exhibit greater market valuations, greater trading activity and realize a lower cost of capital. A recent study published in the Financial Analysts Journal (FAJ) indicates that the capital markets discount companies lacking recognition by more than one third, resulting in a higher cost of capital.

Special Situation      TESLA  (TSLA) $376

We’re going to be following this as a special situation. I don’t know how you can’t come to the conclusion that the stock is way overvalued by any mortal means of valuation.

Market Cap 60.6 B (yup that’s $ Billion). Compare that to Ford at $43.5B with a $.60 a share dividend and at 11.6 X earnings. Tesla lost $675 Million last year.

One of the newest things is a self-driving car. Not so fast --no pun intended.

After Joshua Brown, 40, of Canton, Ohio, was killed driving a Tesla Model S in the first fatality involving a self-driving car, questions have arisen about the safety of the car’s crash-avoidance Autopilot system. Tesla told Senate investigators that a “technical failure” of the automatic braking system played a role but maintains that Autopilot was not at fault. Read complete article.

Tesla also says a driver of an autopilot car has to keep his hands on the wheel and pay attention etc. I’m paraphrasing here, but you get the idea. I think that has about zero merit for the following reasons:

  1. We have a huge problem with driver distraction in using cell phones etc now when you are supposedly 100% in control. Imagine what happens when you think the car can drive itself??
  2. A system failure of any kind at speed could quite likely kill you.
  3. Being a car and motorcycle race driver I learned something very interesting from a local physicist that runs an aircraft-auto race simulator facility.

You believe with absolute certainty that what you see is in real time.  Not True. Depending on your age and reflexes etc the time delay from when your eye sees an image and when it is registered by your brain is between 2-4 tenths of a second. If you’re the 4 tenths guy that is 28 feet at 50mph. In other words you are already 28 feet further down the road than you think you are. How close are you going to be towards that truck the car didn’t see when you realize you have a problem??

Tesla was cleared of problems with its systems, but in this report from the NY Times they lay out exactly my case as to the why that auto driver car will kill a lot of people until the systems are bullet proof to the point that automated trains are.

Tesla has said its camera failed to recognize the white truck against a bright sky. But the agency essentially found that Mr. Brown was not paying attention to the road. It determined he set his car’s cruise control at 74 miles per hour about two minutes before the crash, and should have had at least seven seconds to notice the truck before crashing into it.

Complete article

Bottom line is that before this auto driving car idea can really take hold it will need to be tested to death. If not you’ll kill people on a regular basis and the attorney’s will have a field day. 

Sooooo anybody building in some huge revenue for Tesla from self-driving cars better have lots of patience.

Reg A Update

AAAAAh yes--  our friends at Elio entertain once again..

Well if you’ve been following along you were probably aghast to see Elio announce a securities offering and the stock torch up to a high of $10.60 last week.

Carl you must have lost your mind when you said it was going to zero…

The lost mind crowd is the group that thinks that because you file an S-1 offering doc that means you’re going to raise the money. That might be true if there was a firm commitment underwriting LOI from a recognized Investment bank. Sorry, but there isn’t one. That filing is a smoke-show, that anyone could replicate. First it has to be approved by the SEC and then you have to find someone dumb enough to put up $100 million more into this charade, which would still be a long way from getting the job done. In my opinion all the dumb money is already in.

The Wishful thinkers have sobered up and as I write this it is already back to $5.25 and headed back where it came from and on down.

Some excerpts and comment below from the S-1 (Link Here):

“We expect the Elio to have a gamechanging impact beyond simply vehicle sales.” As of March 31, 2017, we had 65,255 reservations for the Elio.”  

Seems to me the game is really bilking those 65,255 car reserve people out of their money. Sorry guys, Elio spent it already so you’re not getting your car and you’re not getting your money back either.

“On May 31, 2017, we entered into a third amendment to our purchase agreement with RACER Trust pursuant to 
which our commitment to create 1,500 new jobs by July 1, 2017, has been extended to September 1, 2019. On May 31, 2017 and July 1, 2017, we entered into forbearance agreements with RACER Trust pursuant to which 
RACERTrust has agreed to forbear on enforcing the payments due under a promissory note from October 1, 2016 
to September 30, 2017. If we  receive  net  proceeds  of  at  least  $25  million,  in  the  aggregate  from  one  or  more  offerings  of  the  Company’s  debt  or  equity securities on or before September 30, 2017, then we must pay to RACER Trust, on or before September 30, 2017, the sum of the unpaid monthly amounts due to RACER Trust under the promissory note. Default interest of 18% per annum will continue accruing until the payments are resumed on October 1, 2017. In addition, the maturity date of the promissory note has been extended from July 1, 2017 to July 31, 2018.”

Bottom line is they need $25 million from this offering to keep the property and equipment deal in place. That’s 45 days. Not Happening

“The Elio is  still  in  development,  and  we  do  not  expect  to  start  delivering  to  customers  until  2019.”

Every time he does a Press Release he adds a year to delivery. Nice try, your car reserve people are going to be well into the class action lawsuit before then.

 “Currently, we estimate that we need to raise an estimated $376.6 million from new investment.”

Let’s suppose that’s true… How does a $100 million offering get that accomplished?  It doesn’t and therefore smart money is not going to go down that road not knowing where the other $276 million is coming from.

“We face significant barriers as we attempt to produce our first mass produced vehicle. We currently have a few drivable early prototypes  of  the Elio,  but  do  not  have  a  full  production  intent  prototype,  a  final  design,  a  built-out  manufacturing  facility  or manufacturing processes. “

This alone makes a host of internet posts and press releases a bald faced lie.

I could go on.. bet there is really no need.

It’s only a matter of time until gravity will finally take its toll on the stock price

HP Inc. (HPQ) is the surviving entity following the November 2015 split of Hewlett-Packard Company into publicly traded entities – Hewlett Packard Enterprise Company and HP Inc. The company’s focus will be on the PC and printing products and services. HP Inc. is headquartered in Palo Alto, California.

Keep in mind that today we are discussing HP Inc, this is the company most people think of when they think “Hewlett Packard” because this is the entity that is responsible for PCs, printers, and other similar items. The “other” HP is Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE). Hewlett Packard Enterprise handles data centers, software, and IT services for corporate clients.

The company split up after the disaster that was the reign of former CEO–and recent US presidential candidate– Carly Fiorina. Fiorina wrecked one of the premiere tech pioneers of Silicon Valley in little more than five years. She was responsible for a variety of disastrous decisions including purchasing COMPAQ, firing @30,000 workers, and other missteps. It took a full on revolt from the founders’ heirs to finally remove her.

Of course, as is too often the case in modern-day America, for her “success” Fiorina was rewarded with a $20 million golden parachute package. Now, the company is on the mend–indeed, once Fiorina was fired the stock popped 10% in response.

When the companies were split up, most analysts expected HP Inc. to fade. Perhaps not immediately, but surely a focus on PCs and printers, items which are more like a commodity than a high-value item (unless you are Apple), would not be very “sexy” and would have more mundane profits.

HP Enterprise, on the other hand, was supposed to be the “golden child.” It’s focus on high-value items like data centers and services would boost their bottom line. So, this was the portion of HP that attracted all the “smart” money and analysis.

But, over the past year we have seen a reversal here. HP Inc. is the company with the good results and the attention. HP Enterprise is having a hard time in the cloud, and sales goal and projections and not being met. Meanwhile, HP Inc. has posted good numbers and has been rewarded by analysts and investors. Their efforts to expand their 3D printing business show promise–and profits–and changes to how they handle ink supplies for more standard printers have also paid off. They have also focused on more powerful–and profitable–computers for higher-end business clients and thus also boosted their bottom line.
