California retailers are happily clearing shelf space for PLUS’s...


EQUITY.GURU podcast: Patriot One Technologies (PAT.T) - the hardware that protects soft targets

If the world was inhabited exclusively by decent, well-adjusted people, Patriot One (PAT.V) (a covert weapons-detection tech company) would be out of business. But that is not the world we live in. Every day about 400 people in the U.S. are shot, and 100 of them die. Patriot One’s “Cognitive Microwave Radar” detects concealed weapons from parking lots to buildings. Recently, U.S. soft targets have been targeted by shooters: a grocery store in Kentucky, a synagogue in Pittsburgh, a Las...

The fact that the property sits within a mining friendly and politically stable jurisdiction, makes it all that...


Equity.Guru podcast: VitalHub (VHI.V) builds healthcare solution business for the value investor

EQUITY.GURU: Westleaf Cannabis (WL.V)

When Canada legalized recreational cannabis in October 2018, Canada’s LPs may have thought the hard part was over.

With a...


EQUITY.GURU: Tinley Beverage Company (TNY.C)

Tinley’s second generation of beverages are ready to hit shelves, with a third phase in the pipeline. But delayed rollouts have been a concern to some investors, so...


EQUITY.GURU: Permex Petroleum (OIL.C)

Legal cannabis has had a wild ride on the public markets: while some cannabis companies were being valued at 20x sales, operators in other sectors like energy and resources saw their market caps shrivel.

EQUITY.GURU: Lifestyle Delivery Systems (LDS.C)
