Bob Moriarty of 321Gold discusses Defense Metals’ recent PEA and explains why this company is important for the Western EV market.

For most of the last year I have been predicting the start of a major market crash, long overdue, to take place starting in October. I got it totally wrong. The giant crash started weeks late but is now with us. Tax Loss Silly Season this year is going to be the biggest blood bath and greatest opportunity most of us will ever see. While it’s true that the clipto currencies and major markets will suffer the greatest losses, when the margin clerk is on the other line, investors sell everything they can get a bid on.

Green eyeshade wearing account clerks in the back office convinced management of every western auto manufacturer that the way to maximum profits was to adopt a system of “just in time” parts delivery. In theory the auto companies saved money because they weren’t paying interest on the money they tied up in keeping a healthy supply of spare parts. That theory actually didn’t make any sense in an environment of zero interest rates.

The big car companies have lost hundreds of billions in revenue this year for lack of ten-dollar memory chips. All made in China or Taiwan to save money. Single sourcing anything is a sure way of life biting you on the ass.

I have been writing about Defense Metals Corp. (DEFN:TSX.V; DFMTF:OTCQB; 35D:FSE) for nearly three years. And here. And here.  And here. The primary focus of Defense Metals is on their Wicheeda REE project located in British Columbia, Canada. While China mines and processes the bulk of Rare Earth Elements (REE) in the world, we are right back to that ticking time bomb of single sourcing critical elements. China’s share of production of REE needed for high performance magnets and other ultra high tech metals has actually been growing as production in the rest of the world has slowed to a crawl. China produced 85% of REE in 2019 and 90% of the finished products. You could say China has a stranglehold on REE just as they did with microchips. And the result will be similar.

Last week Defense Metals released a long awaited preliminary economic assessment (PEA) on the Wicheeda REE property. The numbers were good showing a NPV of $765 million pretax and after-tax NPV of $512 at an 8 percent discount rate. The after tax IRR is 16 percent and I highly suspect the company is sharpening their pencils in order to raise that number. The PEA envisions a nineteen-year mine life with an operating margin of a nice 65.2 percent.

Capex for the mine and mill is estimated at $461 million with a twenty to twenty-five percent contingency allowance. The 43-101 shows a five million tonne indicated resource showing a 2.95% TREO and a twenty-nine point five million tonne inferred resource averaging 1.83% TREO. During 2021 DEFN finished an additional 5,340-meter drill program in 29 holes. Those assays have not yet come back from the labs. DEFN expects those results will come out in early 2022.

Poor planning on the part of auto companies has costs them hundreds of billions in revenue. If the governments of Canada and the US don’t get their act together, the lack of domestically sources REE will destroy the EV manufacturing in the West. Action needs to take place soon.

I have participated in several private placements in DEFN and bought shares in the open market. I am biased. In addition they are advertisers so naturally I am biased. As always do your own due diligence.

Nio Has Big Plans for 2022, But the Nio Stock Recovery Might Take Longer

Investors in the Chinese electric vehicle (EV) group Nio (NYSE:NIO) stock have been scratching their heads amidst the year-long decline. On Feb. 10, 2021,…

Investors in the Chinese electric vehicle (EV) group Nio (NYSE:NIO) stock have been scratching their heads amidst the year-long decline. On Feb. 10, 2021, NIO stock hit a peak of $64.60 — a price that is now in the rearview mirror.

Source: Robert Way / Shutterstock.com

Then, Nio shares saw a 52-week low of $27.52 in late December and closed at $29.12 on Jan. 20, down 48% in the last 12 months and 4.5% year-to-date (YTD). By comparison, the S&P Kensho Electric Vehicles Index has dropped 21.6% in the past 52 weeks and 6.8% YTD.

Despite the decline in shares of many EV names, the industry is growing. For instance, new-energy vehicles (NEV) sales in China, the largest EV market in the world, is expected to exceed 5 million units in 2022. And EV sales should comprise over 30% of the nation’s auto market, reaching at least 7 million units, by 2025.

Meanwhile, Chinese authorities are reducing EV subsidies for 2022 and will withdraw them completely in 2023. Moreover, the government has recently removed a long-standing mandate and now allows for “full foreign ownership of passenger car manufacturing” in China.

Puzzled by the extended downtrend, investors of NIO stock wonder what could be in store for the company in 2022. Despite the positive industry outlook, fierce competition and stringent regulations could create further headwinds for NIO. Thus, investors might want to wait on the sidelines for the short-term.

Nio’s Q3 Performance

Founded in 2014, the China-based EV group Nio aims to differentiate itself through its battery swapping solutions, Battery as a Service (BaaS) and Autonomous Driving as a Service (ADaaS).

Management issued Q3 financial results in early November. Revenue soared 116.6% year-over-year (YoY) to 9,805.3 million RMB, or $1.5 billion. Total EV deliveries reached 24,439 vehicles, up 100.2% compared to year-ago quarter.

Net loss attributable to NIO’s ordinary shareholders came in at 2.86 billion RMB (or $443.7 million). It went up by over 140%, mainly due to the increase in operating expenses. Cash and equivalents were 47 billion RMB, or $7.3 billion at quarter end.

On these metrics, CEO William Bin Li said, “Despite the continued supply chain volatilities, our teams and partners are working closely together to secure the supply and production for the fourth quarter of 2021.”

Meanwhile, recent delivery figures point to a record delivery of 25,034 vehicles in Q4, up 44.3% YOY. Total deliveries ended 2021 with 91,429 vehicles, up 109.1% YOY. Nio is expected to report Q4 earnings in late February.

Adding NIO Stock to Portfolios

Among 26 analysts polled, NIO stock has a consensus buy rating. Also, the consensus of 25 analysts for a 12-month median price target stands around $58.43, implying an upside potential of 95% from current levels. The 12-month price estimates for the stock range between $37.74 and $87.64.

Its trailing price-to-book (P/B) and price-to-sales (P/S) ratios stand at 11.9 and 8.5, respectively. By comparison, these metrics for Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA) are a P/B of 37.8 and a P/S of 24.7.

Put another way, despite the recent decline, NIO shares still look frothy by traditional valuation metrics. The same holds true for TSLA stock as well.

Yet the company gets significant attention due to its growth potential. Thus, despite the ongoing negative market sentiment, investors might want to keep the stock on their radars with a view to buy around $29, or even below.

Meanwhile, interested readers could also consider investing in an exchange-traded fund (ETF) that also holds NIO stock. Examples include the First Trust NASDAQ Clean Edge Green Energy Index Fund (NASDAQ:QCLN), the Invesco PureBeta FTSE Emerging Markets ETF (BATS:PBEE), the KraneShares MSCI China Clean Technology ETF (NYSEARCA:KGRN) or the VanEck Vectors Low Carbon Energy ETF (NYSEARCA:SMOG).

Bottom Line on NIO Stock

Currently, NIO is one of the top-selling EV manufacturers in China. It sells a number of car models including a coupe sports car and three SUV models. Since last September, Nio has been selling its ES8 model in Norway as well. The company plans to expand into five more countries in Europe in 2022 and more than 25 countries worldwide by 2025.

Also, this year management is launching two new models. The luxury sedan ET7, will be available for orders as of Jan. 20. Deliveries are expected to start by late-March. The other new model, the ET5, is a midsize premium smart electric sedan. Deliveries are anticipated to commence in September 2022.

As part of these expansion plans, a second manufacturing plant is being built at NeoPark in Hefei. The facility, which will help meet the growing demand, is expected to become operational around September 2022.

In summary, Nio has a solid product line and offers tangible growth strategies. However, NIO shares could continue to come under pressure in 2022, in part due to tougher competition, higher operational costs and regulatory risks. Given the upcoming tightening moves by the Federal Reserve, investors are also taking money off the table. Therefore, NIO stock could easily continue to slip further below $30. Long-term investors might still need to be patient.

DATS Stock Alert: The Latest Acquisition News Sending DatChat Soaring Today

It’s been a busy week for DatChat (NASDAQ:DATS), and it isn’t even over. Yesterday, the alternative social media platform announced it was venturing into the non-fungible token (NFT) security space. Today, it took this mission a step further. DatChat has signed a letter of intent to acquire Avila Security Corporation. This move will mean significantly expanding its holdings in the blockchain and user data security spaces. DATS stock didn’t react well to the news yesterday, but the tides have shifted. Both companies have cause to celebrate today.

What’s Happening With DATS Stock

Yesterday began with the news of DatChat’s Web 3.0 platform initiative. While this sounded like good news, DATS stock did not initially react to it, slipping into the red. Today’s news has clued Wall Street into the fact that DatChat is making big plans to gain share of a rapidly expanding market. As of this writing, DATS stock is up 23% on the day. It shot up early and hasn’t slipped.

This morning’s gains have pushed DATS into the green by more than 40% for the week and 23% for the month. Investors saw the stock spend the final month of 2021 in decline, falling by as much as 22%. This type of growth should be reassuring.

While the deal is not yet finalized, it includes “$1 million in cash and the greater of 739,650 shares of restricted common stock.”

Why It Matters

These back-to-back announcements make one thing undeniably clear — DatChat is serious about blockchain security. The company made a name for itself by offering secure social media and messaging options. Now it has recognized that its technology can be applied to a new market, one that is ripe with potential. According to a statement released two days ago, the company is focused on building a “decentralized advertising network for Web 3.0 and Metaverse applications.”

The successful acquisition of Avila will expand DatChat’s intellectual property assets to include both blockchain-based digital rights management and object-sharing technology. The move also makes sense for the company’s communications aspect. Avila’s assets also include encrypted WebRTC real-time video and audio-streaming communications. In acquiring this little-known company, DatChat is strengthening both the old and new components of its business.

The markets for enhanced digital security in both communications and digital asset storage is booming. NFT sales are rising, but as they do, so do theft and fraud within the space. Additionally, Web 3.0 and metaverse applications are only going to help drive stock prices up as both markets heat up in 2022. InvestorPlace’s Luke Lango predicts that in 2022, metaverse stocks will see the type of growth that the electric vehicle (EV) sector did in 2021. If DatChat continues this type of progress, it could be among the metaverse stocks that are destined for growth in the year ahead.

What It Means

When a company announces two major deals in the same space within the same week, investors should pay attention. The second deal isn’t finalized, but DatChat has proven it means business when it comes to these digital expansions. It sees multiple red-hot markets, and it is strategically planning ways to secure shares of both.

NFT security, encrypted social media and metaverse technology are going to be three of the hottest sectors in 2022. If you’re bullish on any, or all three, DATS stock should be on your radar.
