It Was A ‘Red Red Whine’ Sort of Market On Wednesday – $AMZN $LULU $TSLA Movie Higher

By John F. Heerdink, Jr.
“Man is only great when he acts from passion.” – Benjamin Disraeli, British Statesman, December 21, 1804 – April 19, 1881


Happy Hump Day!

Today was a relatively down day for the markets, especially for growth stocks, as 7 of the 11 sectors closed in the red making some us whine or at least look forward to cracking open a nice bottle red wine after today’s sobering session. Risk trades were surely off as investors tried to chew through a number of negative headlines i.e. lack of infrastructure bill support, Janet Yellen’s fearful comments regarding the unresolved debt-ceiling issues, a number fo companies sending reserved outlook messages, & the Fed’s Beige Book confirmed that economic growth moved lower to a moderate pace in early July through August pointing to the spread of the Delta variant.

However, if you were heavily invested in the utilities sector, then you had a big smile on your face as the sector led all with an attractive 1.8% jump.  At the end of the day the major indices all closed in the red as the S&P 500 closed at 4,514.07 (-.13%), the Dow 30 closed 35,031.07 (-.20%), and the Nasdaq closed at 15,286.64 (-.57%). The pressure was lager as you moved down the food curve as we saw the small caps on the Russell 2000 close lower at 2,249.73 (-1.14%) & the MicroCaps also moved lower today as bids were noticeably missing broadly as the iShares Micro-Cap ETF (IWC) closed at $147.04, (-1.25%).

The macroeconomic schedule was fairly busy as it delivered the consumer credit report which confirmed a rise by $17B in July, but missed expectations. The job openings report also showed a rise to an all-time record-high of 10.934M in July. The weekly MBA Mortgage Applications Index fell by 1.9%. Tomorrow’s schedule will be limited to the weekly Initial and Continuing Claims report. 

The yield curve tightened today, as the 10-yr treasury yield closed down 4 basis points at 1.33%, while the 2-yr yield bump up 1 basis point to .22%. The U.S. Dollar Index moved up up by .2% to close at 92.71.

The precious metals markets moved lower again today as gold prices closed lower at $1,792, -$5 and silver closed at $23.99, -$.38.

BIOTECH MOVES LOWER

 The SPDR S&P Biotech ETF (XBI) closed at $133.47, -.54%. The iShares Nasdaq Biotechnology ETF (IBB) closed at $175.44, -.21% & the NYSE ARCA Biotech Index (^BTK) closed at 5,919.99, -.1.31%.

VP WATCHLIST HIGHLIGHTS

Our complete VP Watchlist is a list that we believe deserves consideration for short term and long term portfolio adds that include Apple, Tesla, Disney & 8 other names currently. The dedicated pages for each of these companies will enable you to stay informed and learn more about these companies daily. Please review few of the updates on a few of the VP Watchlist companies below:


  • Shares of VP Watchlist stock, INmune Bio (NASDAQ: INMB) closed trading at $21.57, -22.55% after reaching $26.31 in intraday trading. 
    • On Wednesday, Aug. 4th, INmune Bio, Inc. reported its financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2021 and provided a business update. Raymond J Tesi, M.D., CEO/CMO of INmuneBio (INMB) stated, “We continue our planning and setup for a Phase 2 clinical trial of our lead candidate, XPRO™ (Xpro1595™), in patients with mild Alzheimer’s disease, which we plan to initiate by year-end. We have already demonstrated that XPRO™ can reduce neuroinflammation and decreases biomarkers of neurodegeneration and improve synaptic function. If successful in Phase 2, we believe XPRO™ has the potential to be among the most significant advancements in the treatment of Alzheimer’s Disease (AD) and other neurodegenerative diseases in many years. At the Alzheimer’s Association International Conference last week, we introduced a new biomarker – Apparent Fiber Density (AFD), a measure of axonal integrity measured by MRI. XPRO™ increases AFD in patients receiving 1mg/kg/week. We believe the novel non-invasive white matter analytics of white matter free water and apparent fiber density will be very useful in the development of XPRO™ in AD, Treatment Resistant Depression (TRD) and the many other CNS indications we hope to attack in the future. Last month, we treated the first patient in the first Phase 1 clinical trial of our NK cell priming platform, INKmune, in high-risk myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS). We are calling INKmune a pseudokine because, in vitro, it converts the resting NK cells into memory-like NK cells that can kill cancer cells as well or better than NK cells treated cytokines such as IL-12, IL-15 and IL-18 alone or in combination.”
    • On July 26th, INmune Bio announced the design of its upcoming Phase 2 clinical trial of XProTM in patients diagnosed with mild Alzheimer’s disease (AD) at AAIC. The announcement was accompanied by the release of additional biomarker data from the Phase 1b AD trial that shows improvement in white matter (myelinated axons) that degenerate in AD patients.

  • Shares of Fate Therapeutics (FATE), a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company dedicated to the development of programmed cellular immunotherapies for patients with cancer, closed at $69.52/share, -4.98%. The 52-wk high is $121.16. 
    •  On August 19th, FATE highlighted positive interim clinical data from the Company’s FT516 and FT596 programs for patients with relapsed / refractory B-cell lymphoma. FT516 is the Company’s universal, off-the-shelf natural killer (NK) cell product candidate derived from a clonal master induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC) line engineered with a novel high-affinity, non-cleavable CD16 (hnCD16) Fc receptor, which is designed to maximize antibody-dependent cellular cytotoxicity (ADCC), a potent anti-tumor mechanism by which NK cells recognize, bind and kill antibody-coated cancer cells. The Company’s FT596 program incorporates both the hnCD16 Fc receptor and a chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) targeting CD19, which is designed to enable multi-antigen targeting of tumor cells, as well as an IL-15 receptor fusion (IL-15RF) to enhance NK cell activity and survival.
    • On August 4th, Fate reported business highlights and financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2021. Scott Wolchko, President and Chief Executive Officer of Fate Therapeutics stated, “We are very pleased with the early clinical safety and activity we have observed with our off-the-shelf, iPSC-derived NK cell programs in relapsed / refractory lymphoma and acute myeloid leukemia, where interim Phase 1 data indicate FT516 and FT538 are well tolerated and can deliver complete responses for patients. We look forward to sharing additional clinical data from our FT516 and FT596 programs in B-cell lymphoma at our upcoming investor event. Additionally, treatment of the first patient with FT819, the first-ever iPSC-derived T-cell therapy to undergo clinical investigation, is a landmark achievement and further demonstrates the Company’s leadership in off-the-shelf, iPSC-derived cell therapy and the versatility of its proprietary iPSC Product Platform.”
    • On Aug. 2 Fate announced that the first patient has been treated with FT819, an off-the-shelf chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) T-cell therapy targeting CD19+ malignancies. FT819 is the first-ever CAR T-cell therapy derived from a clonal master induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC) line, a renewable cell source that enables mass production of high quality, allogeneic CAR T cells with greater product consistency, off-the-shelf availability, and broader patient accessibility. FT819 is engineered with several first-of-kind features designed to improve the safety and efficacy of CAR T-cell therapy.



  • INVO Bioscience (NASDAQ: INVO) is a medical device company focused on creating alternative treatments for patients diagnosed with infertility and developers of INVOcell®, the world’s only in vivo Intravaginal Culture System. Shares of INVO closed at $3.66.
    • On September 7th,  INVO Bioscience announced that it has officially opened the Company’s 2nd INVO Center in the United States, based in Atlanta, Georgia after recently opening their first in Birmingham, AL called “Innovative Fertility Specialists, An INVO Center” on August 9th. INVO Centers are further scheduled this year to open in Monterrey, Mexico & the San Francisco Bay Area. This new joint-venture, named “Bloom Fertility, an INVO Center,” will focus on patients in need of advanced fertility care utilizing the efficient, effective, and affordable INVOcell solution. READ THE COMPLETE STORY. 

    • On August 16th, INVO announced their financial and operating results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2021 and provided a business update. Steve Shum , CEO of INVO stated. “Our team made excellent progress during the second quarter of 2021 toward our key objectives, headlined by last week’s official opening of our first INVO Center practice in Birmingham, AlabamaWe feel INVO is now well positioned for success based on the following core foundational elements developed over the past 2 years. We believe there is a substantial underserved patient population with infertility challenges and a real need to expand access to treatment. In our opinion, this is a multi-billion-dollar market expansion opportunity, and INVOcell is well positioned to address the unmet medical need.”
    • On Aug.2, INVO announced the Company’s first Joint Venture INVO Center practice in the United States, based in Birmingham, Alabama, was officially opening on August 9, 2021. Dr. Hammond commented, “With the opening of the country’s first INVOcell medical practice, we are advancing a core mission towards improving access to advanced fertility services for the many patients who would otherwise never have the opportunity. To date, we have already received numerous advanced inquiries via word of mouth and have dozens of patients scheduled for initial patient consultations who are eager to proceed with treatment. As we officially open the center next week, we expect to accelerate our marketing programs with the help of the INVO marketing team to enhance overall patient awareness around Innovative Fertility Specialists, An INVO Center.”
    • Over the past 40+ years, since the first IVF baby was born, the fertility market has grown into a $20+ billion global industry. Here in the U.S., according to the most recent 2019 CDC data, approximately 330,000 IVF cycles were performed across 448 clinics, which implies a roughly $5 billion domestic marketplace. However, this represents only a small portion of the actual market as approximately 90% of infertile couples go untreated each year. There are some real challenges with bridging the gap of treating the volume of patients that need care. Patient affordability and lack of insurance coverage is often the most discussed dynamic, but that is only one part of the challenge. We believe that there is an equal or even greater challenge related to capacity limitations in the industry given the relatively small number of IVF clinics and limited human resources available which are typically only available in major metropolitan areas. We believe that INVO Biosceince’s INVOcell, without the need of expensive lab build outs, can bring much needed capacity additions and access to the market beyond the major metropolitan areas at a more affordable price.

Atossa is therefore adjourning the meeting for 30 days to allow additional time for stockholders to vote. Atossa stockholders may vote by calling (833) 786-6488 Monday through Friday 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Eastern Time.
    • On Aug 13th, Atossa announced financial results for the fiscal quarter ended June 30, 2021, and provided an update on recent company developments. “We continue to experience encouraging progress in our MBD and COVID-19 programs, with new regulatory approvals being granted in Sweden for a Phase 2 trial in MBD and authorization in Australia to commence a Phase 2 study of AT-H201 for respiratory illness associated with COVID-19. In the meantime, we continue to enjoy a strong balance sheet, which we have significantly expanded over the last three quarters and will facilitate our development plans over the near term. As we actively explore the possibility for strategic expansion into other areas where we might see near-term milestones and results, we also urge all of our shareholders to exercise their right to vote at our special stockholder’s meeting on September 7, 2021. We urge a vote in favor of the proposal to increase authorized shares, which will provide the Company with the flexibility to issue shares as part of these potential acquisitions, collaborations and partnerships, a common strategy successful biotech companies seeking to grow shareholder value employ in order to create a more attractive opportunity for all. We look forward to continuing to update our stockholders on these opportunities as they develop,” stated Dr. Steven Quay, Atossa’s President and Chief Executive Officer.
