All The Wall Things

Twas’ the weeks before Christmas, when all through the states, the Americans were panicked for their government’s fate. Trump told all who’d listen that he wanted his wall, and if this didn’t happen, he’s shut down it all. Clever rhyming aside, the US Federal government is potentially headed for a shutdown at President Trump’s request because Democratic representatives in Congress won’t give Trump the votes that he needs to allocate the necessary funds to construct a massive wall along the US-Mexico border. Last week, Trump sat down with two members from the Democratic Party; Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi. During this meeting, which can be viewed via several entertaining clips on the internet, Trump expressed, in a less than politically cordial tone, his adamance on funding the border security wall. 

“If we don’t have border security, we’ll shut down the government — this country needs border security. I will take the mantle, I will be the one to shut it down. I’m not going to blame you [Democrats] for it.”

-President Donald Trump 

The wall has become synonymous with President Trump’s time in office, really. People originally had their doubts about the wall, some people hated the wall, but plans for the wall continued to gain tread. Now, even more, Americans are against the wall, and some just don’t care about what the wall has to say. 

All the wall things aside, the question on everyone’s mind in America is: Will President Trump actually shut down the government? 

The US Federal government is but a few days shy of its Dec. 21 deadline to vote on legislation the would provide the entity proper funding. It is clear, from several headlines and his own social media interactions, that President Trump has no intention of letting the upcoming deadline pass without an iron-clad agreement from Congress approving Trump’s $5 billion funding request for the wall. Aside from the wall, parts of the federal government will be cash poor in one week’s time if the White House and Congress don’t approve several funding bills. While Trump has puffed up his chest, saying that he’d be “proud” to shut down the federal government if the Democrats don’t increase their $1.3 billion wall package to $5 billion, shutting down the government will cause serious financial duress to hundreds of thousands of nonessential government workers across the country. 

According to several political analysts, if the federal government is indeed shut down from operations, governmental departments crucial to the everyday survival of low-income families and individuals will suffer the consequences. In anticipation of a federal government shutdown, U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue issued a public statement informing Americans, namely those that rely on the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP,  on how the USDA will make its services available in the event of a shutdown. 

“USDA is committed to safeguarding life and property through the critical services we provide – and should the government shutdown, we will continue to do just that. I am proud of each USDA employee for everything they do to benefit the farmers, ranchers, foresters, and producers who depend on our services. It is their mission each day to fulfill our USDA motto, ‘Do right and feed everyone.”

Sonny Perdue, U.S. Secretary of Agriculture 

Perdue went on to explain that the SNAP program and other government-funded food support programs including child nutrition programs in schools, and the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children, will “have funding available to operate through the month of February, and many have funds to continue operations through March…” The Trump administration Sunday reaffirmed their stance on unplugging the government in the event of Congress deciding not to give Trump his milk money, with senior adviser Stephen Miller referring to this as a “fundamental issue.”

“At stake is the question of whether or not the United States remains a sovereign country. The Democrat Party has a simple choice. They can either choose to fight for America’s working class or to promote illegal immigration. You can’t do both.”

Stephen Miller, Senior Adviser to President Donald Trump 

While I very much understand the divisive nature of the current situation facing the federal government, I disagree with Miller’s monochromatic assessment. No one in this country wants to see the government shutdown, this much is known. As for fighting for the American working class, I find it ironic that these sentiments come from the Senior Adviser to an individual whose income bracket places him in the 1% of earners in the United States.

I fail to see the correlation between funding the wall and supporting the working class. In my opinion, the Trump administration has exhausted all options and is using pure rhetorical statements to convince Americans of its agenda, but nevertheless, we shall see if the federal government is, in fact, powered down.

biotech stocks to watch

Biotech stocks is often regarded as safe due to the simple fact that it is a sector that has grown across the board for quite some time. However, in addition, the biotech sector has the potential to generate handsome gains if an investor ends up choosing the right stock.

Investors need to watch the market closely and be aware of the latest news from the sector in order to make the best choices. Here is a look at 3 biotech stocks that turned heads in the biotech sector this week.

PharmaCyte Biotech (PMCB)

PharmaCyte Biotech (PMCB) is in the prep phase of clinical trials and readying to complete its Investigational New Drug Application for the FDA.  Whether you’re new to biotech stocks or a seasoned vet, you should understand how important milestones like this are for a company.

David A. Judd, a cellular biologist and a member of PharmaCyte’s Medical and Scientific Advisory Board, was recently interviewed. Right now, PharmaCyte Biotech (PMCB) is putting together the necessary material for its planned clinical trial for inoperable pancreatic cancer, one of the most deadly forms of cancer today. Though there has been a targeted focus on Pancreatic cancer with PharmaCyte, its diabetes application may also have promise according to Judd.

“I think diabetes is where this type of technology really lends itself to the application. The key is to develop the right type of cell line to treat Type 1 and insulin-dependent Type 2 diabetes. There are several cell lines being explored by PharmaCyte simultaneously to do this. Selecting the right cell line to become our leading product candidate to treat diabetic patients in need of insulin is key to the success of PharmaCyte’s Diabetes Program.”

As one report puts it, “Clinical trials are essential for the development of new treatments, and PharmaCyte will enter this upcoming trial with two essential goals in mind—the future of its pancreatic cancer treatment and the future of its technology.”

VIVUS (VVUS)

The first biotech stock to consider here is that of VIVUS, Inc. (NASDAQ:VVUS), which has rallied on Wednesday on the back of a major announcement from the company. The stock rallied by 3% this morning in premarket trade after the results were announced from the Phase 1 clinical trial of its product Qsymia. The medicine in question is a capsule and is meant for people who suffer from binge eating disorder.

It should be noted that medicine is currently approved in the United States when used by people in order to reduce calories in their diets. It is a major development for VIVUS and it is no surprise that the stock rallied today.

Diffusion Pharmaceuticals (DFFN)

The other biotech stock that is worth including in the watch list is that of Diffusion Pharmaceuticals Inc (NASDAQ:DFFN), which made solid gains yesterday on the back of the announcement of positive preliminary data from the Phase 3 clinical trial of Trans Sodium Crocetinate (TSC). The medicine is meant for treating inoperable glioblastoma and in the results, it has been revealed that patients recorded a median survival duration of as long as 14.3 months.

Historically, the standard survival duration is only 9.2 months. The results triggered a rally in the stock and the Diffusion stock soared by as much as 67.60%.

Defense Stocks in Focus This Week

While Many Watch Marijuana Stocks, Defense Gets Another Push

It is a well-known fact that the United States has the biggest defense budget in the world and the budget rises every year. That’s is why defense stocks are almost always in demand. These are companies that often win mega contracts from the American government and are immune from the volatile swings of the market.

Even if the economic situation is weak, the government will continue to spend on defense. Therefore these stocks are so attractive for investors. Here is a look at three penny stocks that are worth tracking at this point in time.

Liberty Defense Holdings (SCAN.V) (LDDFF)

There have been more mass shootings this year in the United States than there have been days in the year. Over 330 mass shootings [1], to be exact. This is becoming a huge issue that is costing precious lives and could see billions of dollars spent to fix this situation.

Liberty Defense (TSX: SCAN.V) (OTC: LDDFF) plans to address this issue using HEXWAVE, a next-generation high-tech security scanning system. It will use advanced, low-power radar, 3D-imaging, and Artificial Intelligence (AI) to screen people at public gatherings such as sports games, unobtrusively. The company itself has been making paramount progress this quarter.

Most recently the company signed a collaboration agreement with Port Tampa Bay to beta test HEXWAVE. Between the years 2007 and 2017, total cruise ship passenger capacity grew by 25 percent in North America, with the following 10 years estimated to see a further 41 percent increase, according to a 2017 report. So this move could prove to be well-timed for a company like Liberty Defense (TSX: SCAN.V) (OTC: LDDFF).

Also, keep in mind that they’ve also got agreements in place with FC Bayern Munich’s Allianz Arena in Germany, Rogers Arena in Vancouver, British Columbia, Maryland Stadium Authority’s Camden Yards Complex, and in the state of Utah. There’s also projects with the Virginia Division of Capitol Police, in Sleiman shopping centers, in a Hindu temple, in the Metro Toronto Convention Centre, in Toronto Pearson International Airport, and with the University of Wisconsin Police Department. To say that they’ve laid the groundwork may be an understatement and results of these beta tests are highly anticipated by the company.

Air Industries Group (AIRI)

The first defense stock to consider is that of Air Industries Group Inc (NYSEAMERICAN:AIRI). The company is involved in aerospace and defense space. Air is best known for manufacturing, designing and selling products that are meant for flight safety. The Air stock has done particularly well this year and has soared by as much as 65% thus far. It is important to point out that Air counts some of the biggest names in the industry among its clients.

Products made by the company are currently used in Sikorsky’s UH-60 Black Hawk, Lockheed Martin’s F-35 Joint Strike Fighter, Northrop Grumman’s E2 Hawkeye, Boeing’s 777, Airbus’ 380 commercial airliners, and the US Navy F-18 and USAF F-16 fighter aircraft. It also supplies equipment for different United States State Department Branches. It goes without saying that this is a stock that should be tracked closely.

Astrotech Corp (ASTC)

The other defense stock that should be in investors’ watch lists is that of Astrotech Corp (NASDAQ:ASTC). On November 14, it emerged that a product made by the company’s subsidiary 1st Detect has been chosen to conduct live screening at Miami International Airport by the U.S.

Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Transportation Security Administration (TSA). The product in question is TRACER 1000 and ever since the announcement was made, there has been an impressive rally in the Astrotech stock. That stock rallied by as much as 80% in one day.
