Feature Article

Oil Price Tug-of-War
By: Dave Lavigne

18 months or so ago in this column, I discussed the state of oil prices and the fact that in my view, the resurgence of domestic oil production (albeit from new shale production), may prove to be one of the major economic themes of the first quarter or perhaps half of the 21st century.  I argued then that the rise of non-OPEC production and the resulting waning of OPEC influence, might create the closest thing to a “free market” for oil the the world has seen since oil became relevant. As an extension to the thought, I also suggested that as oil prices become more influenced by market forces (as opposed to monopoly pricing) they may begin trade in a more reasonable proximity to their cost of production, a notion that would probably suggest oil prices in a range closer to $40-$50 than to $70-$80.   At the time of that writing, WTI oil was trading about $46, whereas today it is closer to $66.  So much for my predictions.

Reg A update

June 10- New York Venture Hub

SEC Reporting Companies Soon to be Regulation A+ Eligible

Buried in new legislation mainly intended to ease Dodd-Frank restrictions on small banks is an expansion of Regulation A eligibility to include SEC reporting companies. Previously, such companies were not eligible. The new access to Regulation A will create a viable mini-public offering pathway for SEC reporting companies, particularly those not eligible for registering securities on the streamlined Form S-3 registration statement.

On May 24, 2018, President Trump signed into law the Economic Growth, Regulatory Relief, and Consumer Protection Act, which primarily is intended to ease the burdens on smaller banks under Dodd-Frank. Buried in the Act is Section 508, entitled “Improving Access to Capital”, which expands the availability of Regulation A+ by requiring the SEC to remove the requirement that the issuer not be an SEC reporting company. Section 508 also requires the SEC to amend Regulation A+ so that any company subject to Section 13 or 15(d) of the Exchange Act will be deemed to have met the periodic and current reporting requirements of Regulation A+ if it satisfies the Section 13 reporting requirements.

This could be a big boon to small fully reporting companies wanting to raise capital. Reg A allows general solicitation and provides for Blue Sky exemptions in all 50 states making the offering and registration process much less costly.

 

Elio Update

Jalopnik 6-8-18

Elio Motors Had All Of $7,155 Left In The Bank Late Last Year

Elio Motors recently emerged from a months-long period of silence with ostensibly promising news of a $2.5 million investment from Overstock.com, a website that surprisingly still exists. Only now we know just how badly Elio needed it. By the end of 2017, Elio didn’t even have enough cash on hand to buy one of its own vehicles, according to a report filed Friday with the Securities Exchange Commission.

Here’s the full clip from the report:

As of December 31, 2017, we had cash of $7,155 and a working capital deficit of $49,674,327 as compared to cash of $120,206 and a working capital deficit of $42,280,863 at December 31, 2016. The increase in the working capital deficit was due primarily to the decrease in cash and restricted cash as a result of principal payments made on the note payable due to a related party and payment of property tax.

Read the full Jalopnik Report

There is $42.3 million due in the next 12 months and they say now in the SEC filing he needs another $531.2 million for production. So that’s only $571 million after parting Overstock with $2.5 million. Let’s say he raises that even at the current ridiculous stock price of $4.40 (implying the company has a market cap or value of $125 million) that’s another 130 million shares. There are some 28.5 million outstanding now.

Really!!! 

This pig is permanently grounded and, well maybe pigs will fly someday, but only when Elon and company send them up in a rocket which will be long after this one has been slaughtered

Oh I forgot- ELIO is in the cryptocurrency business. Maybe all the reservation holders that have been bilked will get an ELIO crypto coin as a reminder of their lesson……..

 

April 30-18 Digital Trends

Only institutional accredited investors will be eligible to purchase the initial tokens. The tokens will be traded on an Overstock-owned platform named tZero, and investors will ultimately have the option of redeeming ElioCoins for a car, The Drive explained. Elio has consequently canceled plans to raise money through a $100 million IPO, according to Nasdaq.

There won’t be any ELIO so matter how many ELIO coins you have you’re not getting an ELIO in any case.  It can’t be built for anything like $7,500. That the bottom line and no amount of scheming will change that. Overstock dude will get a $2.5 million $ lesson in car building

Please- just say goodbye and be done with it..

 

STOCK RECOMMENDATIONS FROM SMM

Special Situations -Recommended by C. Dilley (SMM)
 

SHORT- Elio Motors, Inc. –ELIO Nov-2016  $11.80  June-15-18 price $4.40  (nice chance to add to short if you can get a borrow on ELIO)

SELL Tesla, Inc. –TSLA Sept-2017   $376.00 June 15-18  price $350.00

Short sale recommendation terminated. I am still extremely negative and not the least of that concerns the big push to self-driving cars.  

Latest charts show strength and the stock is on the rise again even if it makes no sense.

If not already- take profits and close out your position for now.
