Weapons Detection Technology Is Giving Investors Big Firepower In 2019

In a world that becomes more digitized by the day, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that many companies are leveraging this as an opportunity to disrupt their industries.   For instance, global artificial intelligence (AI) in the security market is forecast to grow at a compound annual growth rate of 31.38% from 2016 to 2025, reaching $34.81 billion according to a report from Markets and Markets. 

Concerns for public and private safety are rapidly rising across the globe. As such several companies are working to dissolve these concerns through the combination of AI and security.

AI Defense Stocks To Watch

Liberty Defense Holdings (TSXV:SCAN) is a company that provides security solutions for concealed weapon detection. It does so through its real-time, next-gen 3D imaging HEXWAVE technology products.  The technology creates high fidelity concealed threat images. The images are then assessed using deep learning and AI to alert security. It greatly supports the decision response hierarchy of the threat.  Liberty Defense (TSXV:SCAN) plans to initiate beta testing later this year with two planned partnerships thus far.

“By providing a security solution that is modular, scalable, and capable of providing layered protection to identify threats before they evolve into an attack, we believe that we can make these spaces safer for patrons and merchants alike”.

Bill Riker, Liberty Defense CEO

To date, many established defense contractors have treated AI and robotics as ancillary markets. But they have underestimated the long-term threat to their business. This has opened doors for companies that have helped lay groundwork for the next phase of AI in defense.

For example, Patriot One Technologies Inc. (TSXV:PAT) (OTCQX: PTOTF) is the developer of the award-winning PATSCAN covert weapon detection system. In January the company closed on its acquisition of EhEye Inc. This is an AI-powered safety and surveillance company. It became a wholly-owned subsidiary of Patriot One while its video recognition software was then rebranded as PATSCAN VRS.

Patriot One CEO and President, Martin Cronin, “Their award-winning threat recognition software will integrate into our client’s existing video camera networks offering a first line of defense to detect active shooters or terrorists approaching a venue with weapons drawn. It will also offer an additional layer of detection inside buildings to track threats and even identify irregular disturbances or physical altercations between individuals”.

In line with Patriot One, Liberty Defense (SCAN) has also laid its groundwork in mass market penetration. The Vancouver Sun, highlighted the company for its deal to beta test at the Rogers Arena. What’s more is that Canucks Sports and Entertainment owner Francesco Aquilini is an adviser to the firm. This could be a big opportunity for the company. Not only is Mr. Aquilini leveraging his position to help Liberty but there are additionally board members that could be set to do the same.

The next generation of high-tech security scanners will use advanced radar, 3D imaging and AI to unobtrusively screen sports fans, and the people entering Rogers Arena could be early test subjects for one company’s bid to enter the field.

Derrick Penner, Vancouver Sun

Similarly, ShotSpotter, Inc. (Nasdaq: SSTI) is expanding its own footprint. The company is a leader in gunshot detection solutions. The company helps law enforcement officials and security personnel identify, locate and deter gun violence. 

In 2018 alone, the company’s solutions detected more than 107,000 gunfire incidents across the US. In October, the company acquired HunchLab Technology. This further enhanced its ShotSpotter Missions platform with AI-driven analysis capabilities to improve predictive policing.

William J. Bratton, former NYPD and LAPD Commissioner and ShotSpotter Board Member, “Precision-policing products represent a new era in law enforcement that will provide more specific and objective data to help prevent crime”.

Unfortunately, the world is a scary place and threats to one’s safety are real.  Similar to your health, preventative measures are vital.  As more companies are integrating AI into their security detection, it may be a good time to get familiar with some of the stocks in the sector.

Blackberry Stock Price Corrects 23% In A Month, A Value Buy?

blackberry stock price

There was a time when BlackBerry Limited (BB) used to be one of the leaders of the telecommunication industry by virtue of its smartphones. However, the company’s glory days are well in the past and the stock declined by more than 15% recently after it released its results for Q1 2019. The stock is now trading less than $8 but at the same time, it is important to note that the company has managed to deliver as far as its top-line figures are concerned.

Poor Earnings Lower Blackberry Stock Price

The software and services division is now the company’s most important division. It has emerged as the biggest revenue generator for the Canadian company. Overall sales for Blackberry rose 16% year over year in the latest reported quarter.

Special Report | On-Demand Tech Companies Hit Billion-Dollar Valuations; Here’s How Investors Can Capitalize In The Market

However, in the software and services, it was a far more pleasing picture. Its GAAP revenues rose 27% year over year. The company seems to be on the right track in terms of its plan to turn around. But the market doesn’t seem to take a fancy to it. The reasons behind this might have something to do with allegations made by certain parties.

They say that the company uses non-GAAP methods to report earnings. If there is any kind of accounting cloud over a company, growth may be far away.

Where Does This Leave Blackberry Stock Price?

However, Blackberry has been quick to defend itself against these allegations. Financial disclosures of the company are fully SEC compliant. It remains to be seen whether the SEC takes an interest in the matter.

This problem has been the biggest reason behind the underperformance of Blackberry stock price. That’s despite the company’s decent performance. The acquisition of machine learning company Cyclane is also a positive development. But it remains to be seen how it affects Blackberry’s future growth.

Uber Technologies (UBER) Stock Price Hits $45 Mark Again; Are Delivery Stocks Set To Fly?

A. Lawrence

Published

on

Uber Technologies (UBER) stock price hit its IPO level of $45 again. Since its IPO, this becomes the fourth time that the company has hit its $45 mark. Each time it has been a real challenge for the company to rise above the IPO price.

Uber has made its name through its market dominance however it’s growth continues to be slow-paced and also has continuous losses, making Uber less attractive to many. However, the thing that Uber has done is bring more attention to the on-demand and delivery stock arena.

Special Delivery: Small-Cap Delivery Stocks Are Gaining Ground In Cannabis

Driven Deliveries Inc. (OTC: DRVD) is one of the only publicly traded cannabis delivery service operating in the United States. Now that’s what we call first-mover advantage. Driven Deliveries provides on-demand marijuana delivery in select cities where allowed by law. The service provides the legal cannabis consumer the ability to purchase and receive their marijuana in a fast and convenient manner.

Consumers are growing increasingly lazy with most of all purchases from retail to food shopping being done online. And now you can add weed to that list. Driven Deliveries (OTC: DRVD) is quickly gaining steam in legal US markets as the new delivery option for customers is resulting in increased revenue and transactions for dispensaries.

Food delivery apps and services such as GrubHub and Uber Eats have already expanded revenue generated in the food-service industry by 22% or more. Consumers love getting what they want without having to leave their house to get it, plain and simple.  

In Spite Of Being A Broken IPO, Still Worth An Investment

Cannabis is just one small niche expanding into the on-demand technology market. Uber has always managed to capture the headlines. This week it did that by launching itself in the sixth German city, Hamburg. The company further has plans to acquire Postmates which gives UberEats a heavy competition provided the price is right.

McDonald’s exclusivity with Uber also came to an end this year with the former getting into a contract with DoorDash. The company is set to report its financial results for Q2 on August 8. Uber had given accounts of its earlier performance through the prospectus issued during the IPO.

UBER stock price has been trading at $40 range since June. But, the figure is likely to change in the coming future for better. Uber has been able to disrupt various markets like those of food delivery, personal mobility, and freight logistics. In Q1 results, the company had reported 93 million monthly active platform consumers.

The revenue of the company has been on a slow rise especially on a net basis. The company sends a major portion of the money received to its drivers to keep them encouraged and active. This is a move that is not going away anytime soon. The deep deficits could also prove to be advantageous for the company.

Even though Uber looks like a broken IPO, it still leads in its industry. The concerns with the valuation persist still for good reasons. Uber continues to ride at a market cap which is five times the current year’s revenue. But, one would have to wait till 2025 to see a positive earning in the growing market.
