Cannabis, Alcohol, Short Squeeze 2022, and Barrels of Oil Indicate Some Opportunities

We all look for stock plays that can provide near term profits and we want to point out these four potentials and bring attention to a new blockchain report we will have ready 2-16-22 near market open that should do very well.

HUMBL Inc. (OTCQB: HMBL) also known as Humble & Fume (CNSX: HMBL), has added a supply agreement with BRNT Ltd. through its wholly-owned subsidiary Windship Trading, to add depth to Humble & Fume’s distribution business. The company will supply Humble with BRNT’s assortment of cannabis accessories, led by its acclaimed Hexagon bong, for distribution through Windship’s network of thousands of retail accounts across the United States and globally. Humble & Fume’s latest quarterly results indicate their Canadian operations experienced 27% organic revenue growth year-over-year, while gross margins increased 30% over the same time frame.

Windship Trading has grown to become a leading distributor of cannabis consumption devices and accessories for dispensaries in the United States. The company caters to the needs of dispensary and smoke shop retailers worldwide in the cannabis industry. It has active operations in San Marcos, Texas, Denver, Colorado, Las Vegas, Nevada and Los Angeles, California. With the U.S. cannabis industry expected to expand at a CAGR of 26.7% from 2021 to 2028, the company is forming the alliances to help it capture a substantial portion of that U.S. industry growth.

PHI Group Inc. (NV) (OTCPNK: PHIL) is a holding company engaged in PHILUX Global Funds, the Asia Diamond Exchange project in Vietnam, mergers, acquisitions and investing. The company just announced that HHT Global Co. Ltd., a Vietnamese limited liability company, has signed an agreement with PHI Group to join the PHILUX Global Subfund for agriculture. HHT Global and Empire Spirits, Inc., a subsidiary of PHI Group, Inc., will immediately cooperate to grow sorghum for Empire Spirits, Inc. and Five-Grain Treasure Spirits, a baiju distiller company. Baiju is distilled from sorghum, similar to vodka and is currently the most consumed spirit in the world.

According to the Five-Grain/Empire Spirits development plan, these companies will follow a three-prong growth strategy: (1) grow sorghum using its proprietary seed and technology, (2) ferment and process sorghum to produce bulk spirits and supply to other beverage companies and (3) develop its own brand using proprietary manufacturing methods and preferred distribution channels. By reaching these goals, Empire Spirits would be able to generate an average of $3.5 billion in revenues and $1.6 billion in net profit per year from operations during the first two years. The potential for explosive growth at PHIL is high.

Most investors are familiar with AMC Entertainment Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: AMC) either because they are movie goers, or they remember the Reddit led short squeeze from 2021. Through its subsidiaries, the company owns, operates, or has interests in movie theatres. As of March 12, 2021, it operated approximately 1000 theatres and 10,700 screens in the United States and internationally. In recent news, AMC announced that Ellen Copaken will be joining AMC as the vice president of Growth Strategy, effective Feb. 18. Copaken previously served as an executive for Pepsi, Frito-Lay and Hostess Brands.

AMC has a new popcorn initiative. AMC announced last November that it has plans to capture a piece of the growing multi-billion-dollar popcorn market installing popcorn kiosks and stores at select locations, like mall retail stores.

With the short position in the company’s shares currently hovering in the 20 percentiles, there is much talk about the potential for another short squeeze for 2022. The potential is there because AMC’s movie theaters are beginning to fill up again with 90% of them operating. The company is flush with cash, bringing in new management talent and expanding operations. When the stock market rebounds as it always has, AMC share could begin to gain, making short positions less tenable. With the AMC share price down with the stock market, and a high level of shorts, a squeeze play looks really possible.
