  • .Part II of argument:

    Just think about what I am saying and try your best to create an argument why vcig's estimated opening price wouldn't change between January, when the February mcig investor presentation was first written, and today.

    Think about this, because this may be my strongest argument:

    Back when vcig was first proposed to open at .05 (the month of January), mcig traded between .20-.30

    So at 5 cents, that priced vcig at 25% or 17% of mcig.

    During the month of March, mcig traded as high as 92 cents but spent most of its time between 60-80 cents.
    This was despite the marijuana index plummeting 70% during this month.
    Mcig's value as a stock held up remarkably well despite the rest of the sector getting demolished.
    Even now in April, mcig has held up the best, by bar, of any mj stock.
    Compare it to the 2 other "quality" names like trtc and attbf.

    Now, if we assume the same 25% and 17% and we play it conservative and use 60 - 80 cents for mcig's stock price, then we come up with .10-.15 for the mcig 60 cent number and .14-.20 for mcig at 80 cents.

    In summary, that would make vcig worth .10-.20 per share on the opening day of trading for vcig with an average estimate of .15
    I will play it conservative here and go with .10-.15 Less

    Part III of argument:

    How many mcig shareholders does it take to say "Geez, I bet vcig sells a lot more than mcig" and "geez, the market for vcig is a lot bigger than the market for mcig" and "geez, vcig is legal and appeals to everybody whereas mcig appeals to pot smokers" and "geez, vitacig could easily sell in retail stores without fuss whereas mcig is more controversial" before you realize that the .05 suggested stock price for vcig back in JANUARY no longer makes any sense.

    Why do you think mcig has held up so well in such a terrible trading climate?
    Why do you think mcig was repeatedly shorted whenever it appeared a breakout to new highs was imminent?
    So the people in the know, the people with big money, could accumulate as many shares of mcig as possible so that with the 1:1 dividend, they could own as many shares of vcig as possible without having to compete with every other potential buyer of vcig stock on the opening day of vcig trading who was stupid or unlucky enough not to accumulate mcig shares.

    Go ahead, try to use logic, not emotion, to disprove my argument.

    Vcig opens trading at .10-.20 in July and that is the bottom line.

  • Vitacig dividend worth .10-.20 per share!!!

    Part I of argument:

    One thing I've been thinking:
    Back when Paul attached the hypothetical .05 price for vcig stock, vitacig was just an abstract idea.
    This was several months ago.
    No vitacigs were manufactured yet.
    No vitacigs were sold.
    There was no way to estimate the demand for the vitacig.

    Several things have happened since then that may cause Paul to change the opening price of vcig.
    1) The cnbc interview vastly changed the sales arc of mcig's product and bolstered the company in an unprecedented way that likely increased the value of vitacig because there is a lot more awareness of vitacig now and awareness will only increase between now and the opening day of trading in vcig

    Everybody who ordered mcigs after the cnbc interview will receive an email of all press releases from here on out, including the vitacig video and the vitacig launch.
    What do you think that will do to vitacig sales?

    2) Paul likely underestimated the demand for vitacig, even without the cnbc interview.
    Sales of vitacig are a lot more robust than was expected and the official launch has not even happened yet.
    And this is not my opinion, but something that was relayed to me.
    In contrast to before mcig began trading and even after mcig had been trading for several months, before vcig begins trading, there is way more supply of vitacig, way more sales of vitacig, way more marketing of vitacig (cnbc interview + next few months of pr), way more potential buyers of vitacig, and the possibility that vitacig is selling in retail stores before vcig even opens for trading in July.

    3) the vitacig video premiering tomorrow is likely to be replayed on a lot more websites than usual, again due to the cnbc interview.

    This is a big reason why the filing of the s-1 was changed from April 5th to April 20th, in order to allow some time to gauge the effect of the cnbc interview on both mcig and vitacig, in addition to gauging how vitacig

    MCIG technical analysis

    Mcig is way oversold.
    RSI is sitting at 55, which is the lowest it has been in 2014.
    Only other time RSI was at 55 was back on Feb 25th when the stock was trading at 35 cents after it had based there for weeks.
    Sounds familiar, eh?
    The very next day, mcig began its run up to 80 cents, which only took 1 week.
    A double in 1 week.
    What was the catalyst?
    A very indirect reference to marijuana vaporization after cnbc mentioned the company openvape.
    Hmmm, sounds familiar, eh?
    Aren't we going to be on cnbc this week?
    And isn't our appearance on cnbc a lot more direct this time?
    Oh wait, you mean cnbc is going to interview mcig?

    So last time marijuana vaporization was mentioned on cnbc without any direct reference to mcig, the stock doubled the next week.

    And now, you are telling me that cnbc is going to be directly interviewing several members of mcig and highlighting all of their products?

    And you are telling me that mcig stated they expect to sell 1-2 million units of mcigs this year?

    Oh, and you are telling me that the ceo of oaksterdam university mentions that whoever the first movers are in this sector are going to make billions?

    And a lot more of the float is locked up by big money now than 1 month ago.
    And there has been very little retail interest in this stock so far.

    And cnbc tends to spark retail interest in a stock.

    Connect the dots.

    The next move will be parabolic.

    $1.50 by end of next week is a lock.
    That is a conservative target.
    It is not outside the realm of probability that mcig may hit $2 or even $3 after the cnbc interview airs and mcig releases a slew of press releases over the next 2 weeks.

  • I'm back! The interview started an hour late and took about two hours between several setups and shoots.

    First, let me start by saying that there were no major announcements, although there were a few tantalizing tidbits of information. Paul Rozenberg couldn't make it. I was told that he was traveling on some important business and given the impression that it could result in some positive news.

    The Oaksterdam campus consist of one small two story building fronting one of downtown Okland's main streets, Telegraph Ave.
    I was the first one to arrive and was told that the interview had been postponed until 1:00 PM because there was a university class occupying the classroom until then. I was invited to sit in on the class and was treated to a lecture about marijuana pests.

    Once they finished the discussion of fungus gnats and spider mites, everyone left and the room was re-arranged. While they were preping, I had a chance to talk with the three guys from MCIG, Mark Linkhorst their COO, Patrick Lucey who's with the Vapolution group and a gentelman named Khary (didn't catch his last name - my apologies Khary if you read this) who is on their medical advisory board. I was given a suvenier T-shirt and samples of the three VCIGs. Mark knew who I was as he had been watching our board and saw that I was comming. I asked Khary whether he could see the VCIG Energize competing with energy drinks like Red Bull. He indicated that while it would be possible to put caffein in a smoke, there could be a lot of legal exposure if people overdosed. The VCIG has a much more subtle effect (I suggested it was more like the stuff they put into Jamba Juice that they say will give you energy or boost your immune system). Nevertheless he indicated that he could see it marketed in convenience stores. I asked him about other medications and he said that would take some time since there are a lot of regulatory hurdles (extensive testing would probably be required). They were, however, working on a next generation VCIG with new ingredients.

    Jane Wells from CNBC conducted the interview. Besides the cameraman and one or two students who looked in, I was the audience. They started with Mark explaining the MCIG and the principles behind vaporization - e.g. less plant material is required and your stash will last longer. He said that they were overwhelmed with demand but that most of the people, who called about their orders, told them that they were happy to wait. He said that they had already sold tens of thousands of MCIG's and were expecting to sell about 1 to 2 million units the first year. Jane asked whether he was worried about the dangers of smoking MJ and he indicated he was not. When asked about competitors he said that there were none at our price point. She asked what would be next and he said "new ingredients for the VitaCig".

    Jane next interviewed Dale Sky Jones the Univerity Chancellor who gave an enthusiastic defense of vaping as a harm reduction technique for people quitting tobacco and indicated that there has recently been an explosion of new products using hemp and cannibis. She said that the first person through the wall of this industry can make billions.

    Khary was next and he said that inhalation of vitamins and using vaporization for health was a new concept. He described the flavors and ingredients in the VCIG and, regarding MCIG, he said that there was a whole population of people who are ignorant of the benefits of marijuana. Asked if there would be a backlash against ecigs and if it would hurt the business, Khary said we need to just be patient and look at the evidence.

    Patrick addressed the Vapolution end of the business and said that we had the only all glass inhalation path vaporizer in the business and it only costs $99. Vapolution is now sold in over 20 countries. He again stressed that vaping was more efficient than smoking. Asked if he was concerned about whether pot would be legalized or not he said "not that much - people will always smoke pot.

    After the interview, I asked about whether they would market cartridges. Mark then demonstrated to me how easy it was to screw on an OpenVape cartridge to an MCIG. I suggested we should form a partnership with them and he smiled and said he wasn't about to reveal anything. I left it at that, but it makes you wonder about Pauls trip.

    Anyway, here I am enjoying my new VCIG's while I write this piece. THEY ARE SO NICE! Very smooth draw and taste. The yellow "Energize" is hard to describe. My first impression was that it tasted like a Red Bull, but when I tasted the green "Refresh", I would say it taste even more like that. I think the main difference between the two flavors is that the Refresh has more citrus taste along with a little mint. The purple "Relax" has a distinct blueberry flavor. While I'm disappointed that there isn't a more noticable immediate energy or relaxation kick, I can definitely see getting hooked on the taste. After smoking a cigarette, I found it immediately removed the tobacco taste from my mouth. Perhaps it could be marketed like a breath mint. I found all three flavors to be somewhat relaxing but perhaps different people will react in different ways. In any event I can definitely see a winner here.

    Cane,

    The game is over.
    Check out my posts on the mcig 3.0 on the investorshub board.
    Press release tomorrow morning, I bet.
    This week is gonna be nuts with mcig 3.0 release, divy date of vitacig release and cnbc appearance including demonstration of mcig 3.0 and vitacig

    We are going to straight to $1.50 and likely past $2.00 this week.

  • I have predicted exactly what will happen to this stock this week and during the next several months.

    Price target is $1.50 by end of this week and that is a conservative estimate, IMO.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • Clues are all over vitacig website under "discover" tab.
    Go to investorshub mcig discussion board for details.

    You are welcome!

    3 major events will drive the stock this week:
    Cnbc on Wednesday
    Announcement and unveiling of mcig 3.0 on cnbc
    Vitacig dividend date announced

    Stock should end week between $1.50 - $2.00 IMO

    In my last post, I shared with you my fears.
    In this post, I will present a bull case.

    Something major is in the works, either a buyout or merger or major international government contract or the china contract we already have in place comes thru big time.
    And due to this, we need a major cash infusion to build out a lot faster than planned.

    Thus, we announce the big news at the conference call and stock price shoots up and then we raise money when our share price is elevated.

    I just feel a major move is coming and it really could go either way.
    Recent trading action looks not so hot but then again even tesla surprised its investors with good news at the conference call.

  • No news in a long time
    Recent filing of shelf
    Unable to trade north of 1.60
    EV adoption not accelerating since march, stuck on 8k cars monthly.

    Revenue from charging sessions is minimal, Ravi mentioned this in last cc
    EV project revenue is done this quarter.
    How will ecty make up the EV project revenue in next few quarters?
    They can't.
    Next year or two revenue from chargers will be several million annually, no more.

    Shelf registration because EV adoption slower than expected, businesses committing to chargers slower than expected, home chargers being sold slower than expected and expenses higher than expected.
    Thus, cash flow is hurting and they need 10-20 million in cash to get them thru 2014, when they are projecting profitability if EV adoption increases to 25k monthly by 2015.

    I hope I am wrong.
    If not, My stock will be sold off soon.

    Sentiment: Hold

    Big move is happening soon.
    Question is which direction.
    Tough to say at this point.
    If we are a takeover candidate, move will be to $3-$4 range within 60 days.
    If we are bleeding money faster than expected, below $1 becomes likely.
