3D Graphtech: Another 3D Printing Graphene Company

3D printing has the potential for very high growth in the coming years. Graphene is an amazing material that has many potential disruptive applications. Combine the two and you get 3DG; 3D Printing using graphene. Graphene 3D Labs, a company with several patent applications and $1.3 million in cash has managed to increase their share price by over 100% in 5 days by touting their work in the area of 3DG. It's difficult to say what their patent applications are even about since they have yet to appear in the USPTO patent application database, but there is nothing at all that shows this company merits their current $75 million valuation. One Australian company is looking to follow suit by partnering with a graphite miner, announcing the establishment of a 3D printing graphene company,  and intends to begin trading on the ASX through a reverse merger.     About 3D Group 3D Group was founded by [...]

D.Light Solar: Making the World a Brighter Place

Social responsible investing (SRI) is any investing strategy that looks to maximize financial return and social good. Maximizing social good often involves targeting the less fortunate in this world and can be very lucrative. "Sell to the poor and live with the rich" as the saying goes. One startup company that epitomizes this investment thesis by making products that use renewable energy and better the lives of the less fortunate is D.Light Solar.       About D.Light Founded in 2007, D.Light was the brainchild of two Stanford MBA students, Sam Goldman and Ned Tozun, both of who were recognized by Forbes as two of the world's top-30 social entrepreneurs. The company's goal is to empower the 2.3 billion people in this world who do not have access to reliable electricity.

Regen Biopharma IPO: Buyer Beware

Around 6 months ago we published an article titled "Big Red Flags from Bio-Matrix and Regen Biopharma". Any investor who would have sold their shares in Bio-Matrix (OTCMKTS:BMSN) the Monday after our article was published would have been fortunate. Those who did not sell their shares would have lost -61% of their investment as of today. Investors who held BMSN over the past 5 years would have lost -98% of their investment. This should come as no surprise given that the CEO, David Koos, has a track record of destroying shareholder value as discussed in our previous article. Just this past week, another vehicle has emerged that will undoubtedly destroy shareholder value over time. This week saw the IPO of the Bio-Matrix subsidiary, Regen Biopharma (OTCBB:RGBP). At the helm of this venture is none other than David Koos.       In May of 2012, Regen unveiled their ambitious plan for "value [...]

Investing in Smart Glass with Research Frontiers

In a recent article we discussed the rapidly growing smart glass market with a forecasted compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of +20% over the next 6 years which is expected to reach $5.8 billion by 2020. While the company discussed in our previous article, View Inc., seems to be taking on building applications with their "dynamic glass", another company, Research Frontiers, seems to be taking on transportation applications with their nano-enabled "SPD-SmartGlass".         Research Frontiers offers a nano-enabled smart glass product called SPD-SmartGlass. In 1986, Research Frontiers (NASDAQ:REFR) debuted their IPO and to-date performance has been dismal with shares returning -3% compared to an over +1000% increase in the NASDAQ over the same time frame. REFR claims to have over 40 companies that have licensed their SPD-SmartGlass technology including most of the world's [...]
