INVESTORS  subscription news Facebook (FB+1.4%) is setting up a subscription-based news product that it will start testing in October, the company’s Campbell Brown told the Digital Publishing Innovation Summit.

The product looks to be built on its Instant Articles and would call for setting up a paywall requiring readers to subscribe after reading 10 articles. It would also still steer readers to publication home pages to promote digital subscriptions directly to the publishers.

“One of the things we heard in our initial meetings from many newspapers and digital publishers is that ‘We want a subscription product — we want to be able to see a paywall in Facebook,’ ” Brown said, without elaborating on whether/how Facebook would share payments for its paywall.

Facebook shares are at an all-time high today of $165.25.

Michael Welch, President and Chief Executive Officer of Rocky Mountain High Brands, stated, “Indian Nation Wholesale chose Eagle Spirit Spring Water as a premium water after an extensive evaluation process.  They loved the story of our water and its Native American heritage.  Our Made/Produced by American Indians certification mark also was another contributing factor in their decision. It provided our Rocky Mountain High Water Company subsidiary the needed authenticity of being a Native American Majority Owned Enterprise. The taste of our water, its story, its Native American Heritage and the Made/Produced by American Indians certification mark will all be huge selling tools for Indian Nation Wholesale’s staff when they call on their customers, which include casinos located in Southern Oklahoma.”

Welch continued, “Indian Nation Wholesale is a highly respected and experienced distributor and has a very strong footprint in market growth areas that are closer to our corporate headquarters in Dallas. This marketing strategy perfectly aligns itself with the recommendations from our new Board members, Gerry David and Kevin Harrington. Our agreement with Indian Nation Wholesale is the first of many steps toward achieving that commitment to Mr. David and Mr. Harrington in growing the market in our own back yard.”

Rumored Product Release

Reports are making the rounds that Apple Inc. may launch new products this week, which could be new “iPad Pro” models. This could include an all-new 10.5-inch model with slimmer bezels, as well as updated 9.7-inch and 12.9-inch versions. There could also be the launch of a larger “iPhone SE.” (Source: “Apple expected to Announce New Products as Soon as Next Week, Supply Chain Sources Say,” MacRumors, March 13, 2017).

AAPL stock has gained a phenomenal 22% year-to-date as investors get more bullish on the prospects of “Apple Services” and the rumored launch of the “iPhone 8” with support for augmented reality (AR). The focus on AR is likely to strengthen the Apple ecosystem and, together with the new hardware launches, makes room for more Apple stock price increases in the coming weeks.

nother recent report points out how Apple CEO Tim Cook is betting on augmented reality. Apple has built a team by combining the strengths of its hardware and software experts, as well as hiring outsiders to make its AR dream a reality. The team is run by a former executive of Dolby Laboratories, Inc.(NYSE:DLB) and includes engineers who worked on the “Oculus Rift” by Facebook Inc (NASDAQ:FB) and “HoloLens VR” headsets by Microsoft Corporation(NASDAQ:MSFT). (Source: “Apple’s Next Big Thing: Augmented Reality,” Bloomberg, March 20, 2017.)

Apple’s fiscal first-quarter sales rose in every region except in China, Hong Kong, and Taiwan. The sales in Greater China fell by 12%, to $16.2 billion for the December quarter, as local companies like OPPO Electronics and Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd. continue to eat into Apple’s market share.

However, investing in the new R&D centers and working with Asian companies to develop new and advanced technologies and services may turn the tide in Apple’s favor and ease the pressure on AAPL stock a bit.

BlueOcean NutraSciences Inc. Announces its Intention to Launch a Cannabinoid plus Astaxanthin Product

BlueOcean NutraSciences Inc. Announces its Intention to Launch a Cannabinoid plus Astaxanthin Product

BlueOcean NutraSciences Inc. Announces its Intention to Launch a Cannabinoid plus Astaxanthin Product
BlueOcean NutraSciences Inc. (TSXV: BOC) has developed a science-based approach to leverage its current access to 63 retail stores and large online distributors such as Amazon to capitalize on three prominent nutraceutical market segments:

BlueOcean NutraSciences Inc. (“BlueOcean” or the “Company”) (TSX-V: BOC) is pleased to announce that it has begun the development of a formulation of hemp extract containing cannabinoids (not including the psychoactive drug THC) in combination with its signature Omega-3 Astaxanthin oil from natural wild caught shrimp. The commercial product, to be branded “SeaBD” is expected to be launched as a dietary supplement into the United States market. Hemp extracts combined with BlueOcean’s natural omega-3 astaxanthin oils are a natural combination as an anti-oxidant supplement. Subject to financing, SeaBD™ is expected to be commercially available in the first half of 2017.

 

A great deal of attention has been given to the health benefits of cannabidiol (“CBD”) from hemp, for example, on June 24, 2015, Nora D. Volkow, Director, National Institute on Drug Abuse Senate Caucus on International Narcotics Control stated: “pre-clinical research (including both cell culture and animal models) has shown CBD to have a range of effects that may be therapeutically useful, including anti-seizure, antioxidant, neuroprotective, anti-inflammatory, analgesic, anti-tumor, anti-psychotic, and anti-anxiety properties.” Dr. Volkow further stated: “A review of 25 studies on the safety and efficacy of CBD did not identify significant side effects across a wide range of dosages, including acute and chronic dose regimens, using various modes of administration.”

CBD derived from help extract is currently being sold across the US as a dietary supplement. The total market for legal cannabis products in the US is estimated to be $7 billion in 2016, a 26% growth over the previous year (ArcView Market Research). With a number of states legalizing medical cannabis and recreational cannabis in the recent November election, the market for cannabis products is expected to continue its rapid growth. In addition, the current Canadian medical cannabis market is estimated to be worth $100 million, however with the Liberal party’s platform including the push for legalization of recreational cannabis, the total legal cannabis market value in Canada is estimated to grow to $5 billion (Dundee Capital Markets).

And the numbers bear that out. The wearables market saw a modest growth of about 3.1% in the third quarter compared to a year ago, hitting 23 million shipments, according to market research firm IDC. That may not blow your socks off, but smartwatches would kill for those numbers. Sales of smartwatches fell by 52% in the same period. This hasn’t killed Apple stock, but it’s not good.

Of course, it’s worth mentioning that while Fitbit Inc (NYSE:FIT) looks good in these numbers, it has absolutely gotten killed this year, with FIT stock falling 73% since the beginning of 2016, whereas Apple stock has not fared nearly as poorly, of course, as it has diverse offerings.

A lot of the FIT stock downtrend is a result of potentially having tapped out the market for the device, but these numbers act as a provocative counter to that line of thinking, perhaps allowing for a Fitbit resurgence down the line.

  • Buz Investors Bullish Tesla Motors Inc’s New Product (NASDAQ:TSLA) stock lost about two percent on Friday and closed the session at $196.51, continuing its downward trend.
  • Then CEO Elon Musk sent a tweet over the weekend that the company’s surprise product now won’t be unveiled until Wednesday, as it needed more refinements.

Tesla Motors Inc’s New Product  This Cannot Solve Problems at Tesla

TSLA Stock: Could This Be Tesla Motors Inc’s New Product?

The media is full of stories guessing what the new “unexpected” product might be. As per a survey conducted last week, around 40% of people expected it to be “Autopilot 2.0” and 20% expected it to be “Tesla Vision,” which is the vision system of “Autopilot.” (Source: “Tesla is about to unveil an ‘unexpected’ product: what do you think it will be? [Poll],” Electrek, October 11, 2016.)

 


Other Stories Buz Traders Share

It was reported on Sunday that the German transport minister has asked Tesla to stop advertising its cars as having an “Autopilot” function. The word Autopilot suggests that the car can run on its own without drivers’ attention, which is misleading to potential buyers. The right term to use would be “driver assistance system.” (Source: “Germany says Tesla should not use ‘Autopilot’ in advertising,” Reuters, October 16, 2016.)

Autopilot has always been under intense scrutiny following Tesla car crashes in different parts of the world. This has had negative impact on TSLA stock. Autopilot function was also the reason that Mobileye NV (NYSE:MBLY) had a falling out with the company. Mobileye was clear that Autopilot was a driver assistance system only, and could not be a driverless system as Tesla was promoting it to be. Meanwhile, Musk wants to convince everyone that Tesla’s Autopilot system is twice as safe as human drivers.
