  9. News about SNCA merging with leading BioSciences. (05/04/2021 - Reddit Stock Market)
    A recently proposed merger between Seneca Biopharma and Leading BioSciences is awaiting a key vote from Seneca shareholders. For this vote to take place, shareholders must vote for a reverse stock split as well as the change in control and issuance of new shares. Should these votes be positive, the two companies will merge, creating Palisade Bio. In the case of a merger, Seneca shareholders will own about 26% of Palisade Bio and enjoy a contingent value right, or CVR, giving shareholders rights to 80% of proceeds from Seneca Biopharma’s legacy assets. In the video, the CEO explained that the merger would be beneficial to Seneca shareholders, who are frustrated with historical stock performance. He went on to explain that through the merger, Seneca shareholders will enjoy ownership in a company with a world-class management team, several valuable ts, and a focus on providing shareholder value. Leading BioSciences has a strong pipeline of gastrointestinal drugs and a management team that has a strong history of performance. Moreover, not only will Seneca shareholders receive access to this management team and pipeline, should the merger be approved, shareholders will also enjoy an 80% share in legacy assets, So, you’re really not giving up much here.

After Alibaba (with Ant group), Didi just last week and now tencent, it seems no one is safe anymore. I guess this will bring tencent and other Chinese tech stocks further down on Monday. I know you should buy when there is blood in the streets, but considering all the other problems with Chinese stock like ADRs which are not really shares of the companies, questionable accounting practices in china and basically the non existence of the rule of law, Holding Chinese (tech) Stocks long term seems to be really a bad idea, even with the relatively low PE and high growth potential of the companies.   submitted by   /u/doctorzaius6969 [link]   [comments]

  16. Is anybody else like me and almost always votes against executive compensation during AGM season? (09/04/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    It seems pretty ridiculous that the directors of a company - often c-suite executives for another company already - can set forth a remuneration for an executive team valued in millions (either dollars outright, DSUs, options, or warrants) and then dip into the kitty for themselves. I think it's dumb that these votes on "our consideration, if advisable, to pass a resolution to accept the approach to executive compensation" are recommended as "FOR" and that these votes often receive 95+% acceptance from shareholders. People should look more into executive compensation. Many investors will never have as much in their account in their lifetime as many directors are receiving in a single year just for playing an advisory role to a company that may not even be their primary focus throughout the year. Something to think about.   submitted by   /u/dbpf [link]   [comments]

    Is this not an excellent entry point? Sure tech has had a huge run up in the last year, but it has always been on the uptrend. With almost guaranteed low interest rates for the next 2/3 years, why would you not invest during this dip? Arguably this extra 20-25% money in the world is bound to go and stay in the stock market unless there are weenie babies who sell and pay taxes. The chip shortage in the short term might be negative, but once the chipmakers like TSMC, AMD, NVIDEA, INTEL are back to operating at full capacity, tech sales will blow past what we’ve had this past year.   submitted by   /u/theepicone111 [link]   [comments]

  29. Will FRX become the next Peloton? (23/02/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    Why aren’t more people talking about this merger? 7x upside potential. Revenue and subscriber count on par with Peloton. The estimated market cap after the merger closes with beachbody will be around 3 billion. If this stock is even half as valuable as Peloton (which if you look at subscriber count and revenue compared to peloton, they are just barely behind peloton and closing in) this would put beachbody at an estimated 20 billion dollar market cap. That is almost 7x the market cap of beachbody when the merger goes through with FRX. Not to mention that beachbody has way more possible streams of revenue they can tap - from their nutritional supplement business, to the integrated bike they will have to offer from MYX once the merger goes through. This new merger with beachbody seems like Peloton on steroids to me and I’m honestly baffled by the lack of interest in this. Thoughts? ????   submitted by   /u/Keep_It_Toasty [link]   [comments]

  31. $CCIV will be a lesson to not buy SPACS before Merger (23/02/2021 - Reddit Stock Market)
    EDIT: in the title I mean not to buy before Merger terms are announced, not before actual merger I feel for every holding CCIV. There is still not a good understanding of SPACs in the retail world. The reason CCIV is crashing is because the new merger terms are extremely favorable to Lucid at the expense of CCIV shareholders. The reason Lucid was able to get such great terms of the merger is because they had a crazy amount of leverage due to the extreme run up of CCIV before the merger. Basically Lucid was able to see the ridiculous premiums that people were willing to pay. They knew CCIV had no leverage at all because their share price would go back down to $10 the second the announcement of no merger happens. Lucid had CCIV by the balls and im assuming this is why it took so long for the merger to actually happen. A report came out not too long ago valuing that the pro forma equity value was going to be $12bn, now the pro forma equity value is supposed to be $24bn, even though CCIV shareholders only own 2bn of the company, so basically CCIV shareholders owned ~1/6th of the company according to the pro forma equity value in the first report, but now they own only about ~1/12th of the pro forma company. A huge kick in the balls. All else equal, CCIV should theoretically trade 50% lower. That wont happen because people are going to be buying to own Lucid now, but basically you as a CCIV shareholder own about half the piece of the pie that was anticipated. We have never seen something like this before where the blank check shares run up so much in anticipation of a merger even though the MERGER TERMS ARE NOT OFFICIAL. Really an unprecedented time we are in.   submitted by   /u/BiscuitBoi69 [link]   [comments]

    The two big canadian railroads giants have been fighting over Kansas City Southern for a couple months. Now it looks like CNR will be the one who is gonna merge is KCS. I invite you guys to check out this picture, of the rail road maps: https://www.trains.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/04/CN-KCS-map.png As you can see, this merger will make CNR a major player in international trade. The coverage looks incredible to me. You have access to both oceans in both north and south hemisphere. The downside is that it will cost around 33.6 billion C$ to CNR for the merger. To me this looks like a strong bullish event but only for the longterm (5+ years). What do you guys think about the merger? Is it good/bad ?

  44. APHA & TLRY Merger (30/04/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    Forgive me, I am just too confused, and am hoping to receive some clarity on this merger. I understand the terms of the merger, or, should I say, the reverse merger. Aphria is absorbing Tilray, but the APHA ticker will change to TLRY. There will be 7 original Aphria board members, only 2 original Tilray board members, and the CEO of Aphria will remain the CEO. So, it's really Aphria, just rebranded as "Tilray." I keep reading advice that encourages "buy Aphria stock, even ahead of the merger, just in case the Aphria shareholders vote against the merger." However, in my opinion, the merger is more than likely going to happen. And, assuming it does, the TLRY ticker is what you're going to want in your portfolio. NOT APHA. Especially considering the disadvantageous 1 to 0.8381 conversion from APHA to TLRY. Assuming the merger happens, the masses are only going to be ecstatic about the merger and buy more TLRY stock (ahead of the very possible positive earnings in the next couple years). I just don't see the price of TLRY tanking any time soon. Especially long term, where Tilray will probably start turning positive revenue. To me - there are bear factors to keep in mind, as there always are - but there's far more bull factors that are playing in Tilray's favor. I'm long-term bullish on Tilray AND TLRY's price. Is there a piece of information I'm missing or don't understand? That may change my mind about Tilray?   submitted by   /u/Nashorn101 [link]   [comments]

    Anybody know what's going on with BTX, a biotech company with no positive news yet? It has been pumping 50% every day for for about 2 weeks. This company went public in 26-March with a reverse merger with NTN Buzztime (which is an entertainment company, with no relevance with biotech, not a SPAC either) This company just started a phase 2 study. According to their presentation, they value themselves at around 500M by comparing to other biotech. Their market cap is way above their projection now with the recent run up. I skimmed through their 8K, prior share under NTN Buzztime was valued at $0.05, a transaction of $2M with merger. Anybody with an idea how reverse merger works?
