The defense sector in the United States is booming as the government looks to buy more sophisticated technology and weapons, which is why mergers between mammoth defense companies have now become a common practice. Mergers help large companies to pool their resources behind a particular project and give them a better chance at bagging the billion-dollar contracts.

New Product and Potential Application

Liberty Defense Holdings Ltd. is a security company looking to pioneer a groundbreaking product into the industry. As of now, they are only listed on the Canadian exchange as “SCAN.V”. Their product is known as HEXWAVE and it could transform public space security as we know it.

HEXWAVE is a 3D imaging technology product that can detect any kind of potential threat. It utilizes AI and deep learning in order to reduce human errors. HEXWAVE could be used in parks, schools, churches, concerts, sporting events, etc.

The application is practically endless. In addition, HEXWAVE has, as Sean Reyes states, “[struck] the balance between privacy interests on one side and security and safety.” This is important for the product to have given personal security is a huge factor for the general public.

Liberty plans on implementing its product for testing at various sites. This will allow the company to assess how the product reacts to different environments. As of now, Liberty Defense has signed two MOU’s for its use. One is in Utah as well as in Vancouver Arena.

In addition, Liberty has added Anthony Sleiman and Mit Shah to their Board of Advisors. Both men have experience with running business operations that involve watching over many people.

Mr. Sleiman has experience with real estate development and Mr. Shah has knowledge in the lodging and hotel industry. While they are not directly involved with security, both industries require it. These men understand where things can be improved.

So What Was The The Mega Defense Industry Merger?

In a new development, aerospace companies United Technologies (UTX) and Raytheon (RTN) announced the news of their imminent merger on Sunday. The deal is going to be completed entirely in stock. Mergers and acquisitions have become a bit of a trend in the defense industry and back in 2018, United Technologies acquired Rockwell Collins to raise their profile as an aerospace company. The deal was worth $23 billion.

The new entity will be known as Raytheon Technologies Corp and will create a defense behemoth that would boast of annual revenues to the tune of $74 billion. In the joint statement, the two firms touched upon the fact that the merger will allow it to further expand their research and development capabilities.

The new entity will have a far diverse range of products and services on offer and it will also make it a far more resilient company in the cutthroat world of defense contracting. Although a merger of such magnitude will likely come under scrutiny, experts believe that it would not be a problem since the two companies’ products do not really overlap.

The Chief Executive Officer of United Technologies, Gregory Hayes stated that the merger will allow the companies to combine their inherent strengths.

“Merging our two companies brings Raytheon’s deep expertise to vehicle integration, advanced guidance and control, and payload and combines it with UTC’s world-class propulsion technology.”

The deal’s expected to be completed at some point within the first six months of 2020. CEO of Raytheon Tom Kennedy also hosted his investor call. During it, he stated that once the merger’s completed, the company could have $8 billion a year to spend on research and development activities.

A Growing Need For Security Solutions Puts Sector Stocks On Watch

Joe Samuel

Published

on

With recent growing concerns in countries abroad, many people around the world are beginning to feel uneasy. From degenerating relationships between the US and China or recent events in the Middle East, one thing is for sure, the world is as dangerous as ever.

security defense stocks to watch

Technological advancements have become the thing to strive for in recent years. This is blatantly evident in the growth of big technology stocks like Amazon. This is where defense companies are failing to adjust which is making room for new defense and security players.

These types of security tech stocks are relatively new and have a large upside that established players do not have. Here are 3 companies looking to make a mark on the defense sector and the world:

Security Solution Stocks To Watch: Liberty Defense Holdings Ltd. (LDDFF) (SCAN)

One company re-defining what is means to be safe and secure is Liberty Defense Holdings Ltd. (LDDFF) (SCAN). This company has developed a new security technology product known as HEXWAVE. This is an active 3D imaging technology that can detect metallic and non-metallic threats like bombs or guns. Furthermore, the technology does not stop improving, it has AI machine learning capabilities that only enhance the product’s value.

Liberty has put in 5 years of research and development for its HEXWAVE product. On September 25th, the company finally announced that it had completed its HEXWAVE prototype. These 5 years are leading up to real-life application testing for the product.

This is why Liberty has been extremely active in perusing partnerships with stadiums, airports, parks, etc. to test its product. The amount of potential testing locations is large thanks to HEXWAVE being able to operate indoors and outdoors.

Since the announcement of the prototype, more collaborations and partnerships have been formed to test HEXWAVE. Liberty plans on testing it at Canadas largest airport, Toronto Pearson International and the Metro Toronto Convention Centre. These new testing sites will provide new situations for the product and will demonstrate its ability to handle large numbers of people.

Security Solution Stocks To Watch: Patriot One Technologies Inc. (PTOTF) (PAT)

Another company looking to change the security sector’s landscape is Patriot One Technologies Inc. (PTOTF) (PAT). This company develops security solutions to address the growing problem of active threats. To do this, Patriot One developed its PATSCAN technology product. PATSCAN is a weapon detection solution and is the first cost-effective solution for active shooter prevention.

The company recently gave investors insight into the company’s developments in its latest corporate update. In the last quarter, Patriot One partnered with Johnson Controls International, acquired XTRACT Technologies Inc., and appointed Robert Harward Jr to its Senior Advisory Board. Not included in that list was Patriot’s selection to be used in Bleutech Park LV, a Smart City project.

Security Solution Stocks To Watch: Kratos Defense & Security Solutions Inc. (KTOS)

Not every new company is changing defense through weapons detection. Kratos Defense & Security Solutions Inc. (KTOS) develops unmanned systems, satellite communications, cybersecurity, missile defense, and combat systems. Through these programs, the company has put itself in front of the Department of Defense’s Third Offset Strategy.

Kratos Defense has been extremely on fire these past 2 weeks. Here is just a taste of what the company has been doing. Kratos received a $3.3 million contract to produce 10 jet target drone aircraft and received another $3.6 million for a contract extension.

In addition, the company received another $2 million to support its C5ISR combat system program. In terms of product development, Kratos’ XQ-58A Valkyrie completed Flight 3 and received 100% of test points.

So what could this mean for the sector? Obviously today (10-21) will dictate the initial pace for the new week. However, thanks to this common trend, it can be suggested that biotech is in a mini-bull rally. Given that, people are starting to turn their heads toward the sector and healthcare as a whole. In addition to that, small caps have been in their own micro-rally during this same period.

If you look at the Russell 2000 Small-Cap ETF – IWM – you’ll notice a similar uptick. Given this information, here’s a look at 3 small-cap biotech companies that may warrant a closer look after recent developments.

WHAT CURING CANCER & HIV COULD MEAN FOR THIS COMPANY, INVESTORS & THE WORLD

Biotech Stock To Watch #1: GT Biopharma Inc. (GTBP)

For most of October, GT Biopharma (GTBP) has been in a relatively consistent uptrend. Starting on October 4, GTBP stock has managed to jump from $0.125 to highs of $0.1995 last week. Shares closed the week at $0.16 on October 18. So what’s happened with GT Biopharma this month?

The company may have benefited from the attention being placed on companies with targeted therapies. Specifically, GT Biopharma (GTBP) announced that Tim Schacker, M.D., Jeffrey S. Miller, M.D., and their colleagues at the University of Minnesota presented data during a poster session. The presentation was held at the 18th meeting of the Society for Natural Immunity in Luxembourg discussing their design of an HIV-TriKE™ containing an antigen-binding fragment from a broadly neutralizing antibody targeting the HIV-Env protein. 

But it wasn’t just a presentation alone; GT Biopharma’s results could be something raising eyebrows and here’s why. Despite the use of anti-retroviral drugs, infected individuals retain reservoirs of latent HIV-infected cells that, upon cessation of antiretroviral drug therapy, can reactivate and re-establish an active HIV infection.

However, Research findings from Dr. Schacker’s and Dr. Miller’s laboratories show enhanced NK cell cytokine production and the killing of infected targets expressing HIV-Env when incubated with the HIV-TriKE™. Since the publication of these results, GTBP has been in this previously mentioned uptrend. Can it continue this week?

Biotech Stock To Watch #2: Sienna Biopharmaceuticals, Inc. (SNNA)

Second, on this list of biotech stocks, Sienna Biopharmaceuticals, Inc. (SNNA) has found a more bullish trend to close out last week. This clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company recently announced that it has filed a Premarket Notification 510(k) submission to the FDA. This was for its SNA-001, a topical pre-treatment to standard laser devices to remove unwanted light hair. Sienna has also received an acknowledgement from FDA that the submission has been accepted. 

Why is this important to know?  The purpose of the 510(k) notification is to allow for commercial use of SNA-001, in conjunction with an 810 nm Diode laser, for the removal of unwanted white, gray, blonde, light red and light brown hair in women or men. According to the company, people with white, gray, blonde and red hair, for whom lasers are ineffective, have generally been limited to using waxing and razors to remove their unwanted light hair.

Biotech Stock To Watch #3: Aevi Genomic Medicine, Inc. (GNMX)

The third small-cap biotech stock on this list is Aevi Genomic Medicine, Inc. (GNMX). Late Friday, shares of this biotech penny stock saw a second surge that triggered a bullish close to finish the week.  The company focuses on genomic medicine to translate genetic discoveries into novel therapies.  Last week was a pivotal week for the company.

Aevi announced that the Nasdaq Hearings Panel has agreed to the transfer of the Company’s shares to the Nasdaq Capital Market. On top of that, it granted the Company until February 3, 2020, to gain and evidence compliance of the Nasdaq Capital Market continued listing requirements.
