OneWeb Wants Internet In Space, Captain Marvel Not Pleased

You know what? Do you remember that glasses-wearing kid you used to bully back in fifth grade because you didn’t understand multiplication, they did, and you decided the only choice you had was to make them feel small? Well, that kid remembered that every time they looked up into the stars and thought, one day I’m going to change the world for the better.

Avoiding the enticing tangent of discussing the dangers of bullying, history has gifted us with these nerdier individuals who, upon further schooling and development of their ideas, went on to invent technologies that redefined human existence each time one of these people shared an idea. A few months ago, we spoke about Elon Musk, the wacky-yet-brilliant entrepreneur who founded SpaceX with the goal of educing the cost of traveling to space while simultaneously putting in the groundwork to hopefully establish a new colony of Earthlings on the planet, Mars. 

SpaceX, namely Elon Musk, recognized something that many of us are still very much in denial about. We believe that the Earth is still a sufficient planet for our future generations. Elon Musk and the creative hive mind responsible for SpaceX does not share this same ideology. Musk recognized, early-on, that space is an untapped resource in terms of development and placement of technology, as well as a new setting for our existence. 

Well, Musk isn’t the only one with their eyes fixated on the future possibilities that Space has to offer. After four years and billions in funding requests, OneWeb launched and deployed the first of six satellites in a planned constellation of hundreds several weeks ago. For those unfamiliar with OneWeb, it is one of few companies, including SpaceX, determined to use thousands of satellites to create a global-internet system for every person on the planet. Per TechCrunch’s profile on the company, OneWeb plans on launching nearly one-thousand satellites to about a 1,100-kilometer low Earth orbit, where these devices “will be able to provide broadband to practically anywhere on Earth.” 

In their pursuit of covering every nook and cranny of the planet with internet, OneWeb has raised nearly $1.5 billion in funding to start mass production of their satellites. Prior to last month’s launch, investors were concerned with the future of the Company and its ability to meet its self-set deadlines. Following the launch, we now know that OneWeb means business. 

“With the recent successful launch of our first six satellites, near-completion of our innovative satellite manufacturing facility with our partner Airbus, progress towards fully securing our ITU priority spectrum position, and the singing of our first customer contracts, OneWeb is moving from the planning and development stage to deployment of our full constellation…”

Adrian Steckel, Chief Executive Officer, OneWeb

We have quite a bit to unpack here, so hold on to your seats, folks. First of all, its mind-blowing that a company is making significant progress in launching not just one, but an entire constellational network of internet-providing satellites into Space. It’s truly incredible that OneWeb wants to help the world connect with one another, and they’re taking concrete steps to making this a very real possibility. 

Next, and arguably the most important thing to consider about this project. I’m not sure if any of you are aware of the current going-rate for satellites, but they’re not just something you can buy in bulk at Costco. According to TechCrunch, OneWeb satellites currently run at about a million dollars a pop. While the company has raised its total funding to $3.4 billion, it’s going to be a bit of time before OneWeb has a fully-functional constellation of internet. 

Per the details from OneWeb’s most recent corporate update, the Company intends to launch thirty satellites per month over the course of the next year, in order to test connections. Once these tests have been completed, they will begin to offer limited commercial services, hopefully, in the year 2021.

Is The Entertainment Streaming Market Ready For Its Next Move?

New Streaming Options Have Opened A Big Door For Content Providers

As many experts have pointed out, the end of 2019 is going to see the commencement of the ‘streaming wars’ as more and more companies enter the OTT market to challenge the supremacy of Netflix Inc (NASDAQ:NFLX). The launch of the streaming service Disney Plus last week formally launched the streaming wars.

Do Content Providers Stand To Benefit?

According to an article published on Reuters the global video streaming market was valued at $26.27 billion in 2015 and is expected to reach $83.41 billion by 2022 growing at a CAGR of 17.9% from 2015 to 2022. Apple, Disney, Netflix, Amazon, NBC, Hulu & more are all competing within the global video streaming market and they all need the same thing… new & original content. Massive demand may create a huge opportunity for companies like Fearless Films (FERL).

Fearless Films is an independent full-service production company. This is the exact type of company that can benefit from what could become one of the biggest cash grabs in entertainment history and here’s why. You’ve likely heard of the big production houses: Warner Bros, DreamWorks, Red Crown Productions and others who benefited from big deals with streaming companies.

It isn’t just Netflix who’s flexing billions in content budgets, Apple, Amazon, Disney, NBC, Roku – the list goes on. These are huge entertainment distributors who are now fighting for one thing… Where you spend your waking hours streaming entertainment.

Key Analysis On Streaming Service Providers

Considering the fact that the new service has already garnered 10 million users, it’s fair to say that it is here to say. Considering the fact that Apple has already launched its own service and many other services are going to be launched in the next few months, experts are now wondering whether the streaming space has become too crowded.

The success of Game of Thrones has ushered in an era of unprecedented spending for quality content. The show generated total profit to the tune of $2.2 billion for HBO, which is owned by AT&T. Hence, video streaming companies have also decided to spend jaw-dropping sums on original content. Apple has earmarked $6 billion for original content, while Disney is expected to match that.

Both companies are trying to create that one show that could turn into a cash cow. On the other hand, Apple is going to price is monthly subscription at $4.99 and Disney is going to charge $6.99 for the same. In such a situation, one can expect Netflix to change tack since its cheapest subscription is worth $12.99.

So, the crowding is quite apparent as mega corporations enter the streaming space. However, the question remains whether the business is going to grow and new subscribers are going to flock in. Studies suggest that it will grow and up until 2024, the streaming market should grow by 18.8% each year. In 2024, the market is going to be worth $687 billion. Hence, it is quite clear that despite the intense competition that is going to come to the streaming space, there is still room for companies to grow and become profitable.

The Biotech Index Just Hit New Highs; Stocks To Watch

The Biotech ETF – IBB – Just Made New November Highs, What’s Next?

Investment experts and professional money managers almost always tell people to invest across a range of experts. This is usually in order to generate bigger returns in the long term. One of the sectors that is almost always favored by professionals is the biotech sector and the simple reason behind that is the fact that the sector has managed to grow at an impressive pace.

However, in order to pick stocks, an individual would need to conduct his own research with regard to different companies. Here is a look at three biotech stocks that should be tracked closely due to recent events.

PharmaCyte Biotech (PMCB)

PharmaCyte Biotech, Inc. (PharmaCyte) is a biotechnology company developing cellular therapies for cancer and diabetes based upon a proprietary cellulose-based live cell encapsulation technology known as “Cell-in-a-Box®.” This technology will be used as a platform upon which therapies for several types of cancer and diabetes are being developed.

What Happened This Week?

This week was important for the company as it hit a milestone never met. The company announced that its partner, Austrianova Singapore, has successfully completed the second and final GMP manufacturing run to produce PharmaCyte’s clinical trial product. The product is now ready for “release testing.”

The data from the “release testing” of both manufacturing runs will be included in an Investigational New Drug application (IND) and submitted to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to support PharmaCyte’s planned clinical trial in patients with locally advanced, inoperable pancreatic cancer.

“We have cleared what was a major hurdle for us and have completed our most impactful milestone to date. Successfully completing two manufacturing runs is a milestone that has now been met as we progress toward our submission of an IND to the FDA so we can begin our clinical trial in LAPC.”

PharmaCyte’s Chief Executive Officer, Kenneth L. Waggoner

NovaBay Pharmaceuticals (NBY)

The first biotech stock to consider is that of NovaBay Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NYSE:NBY). The NovaBay stock has been on a tear this morning owing to an important product announcement from the company. The company issued a press release this morning in which it revealed that its product NovaSight has been launched on Amazon.

The product in question is a mineral supplement and a daily vitamin that is meant for the eyes. After the announcement was made, the stock rose by as much as 26.50% in Monday’s trade and it remains one of the stocks to watch on the market today. The announcement is a significant one and could have far-reaching implications for NovaBay.

REPORT: 1 Biotech Stock is Positioning Itself for Success

BioCryst Pharmaceuticals (BCRX)

Another biotech stock that has been in the middle of a highly impressive rally in recent sessions is that of BioCryst Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NASDAQ:BCRX). The stock has gained over the course of the past three trading sessions and has generated gains of as much as 28% so far.

In a new development, the company completed a capital raise by offering its equity and managed to raise as much as $55 million. This prompted Bank of America analysts Tazeen Ahmad to upgrade the stock from neutral to buy. The capital raise and the upgrade possibly resulted in the remarkable rally in the BioCryst stock in recent days.
