Summer Doldrums Provide Full Swing To The Negative This Week -$AAPL $MSFT Move Higher

By John F. Heerdink, Jr.
“We are what our thoughts have made us; so take care about what you think. Words are secondary. Thoughts live; they travel far.” Swami Vivekananda


Happy Saturday All!

I hope that all of you had a great week and your portfolios swelled to new high’s beyond your imagination.  As for the markets this week though, they swung to the negative as the the summer doldrums seemed to be in full swing, earnings reports rolled in, & growth concerns added the cherry on the top. For those of you who are unfamiliar with the term “summer doldrums” simply out, it refers to when many investors are indeed away on vacation and liquidity dries up stereotypically between July 1 – Labor Day, which typically increases volatility and price vulnerability. This situation usually produces values, but also tests one’s fortitude and this week was no different. 

As for the major indices they closed as follows: the S&P 500 closed at at 4,327.16 (-1%) & is remains up 15.2% YTD, the Dow 30 also moved lower this week closing at 34,687.85 (-.5%)  & remains up 13.3% YTD, & the Nasdaq closed at 14,427.24 (-1.9%) 11.9% & remains 14.1% YTD. Note that it was not all doom and gloom this week, as each of the majors achieved record new highs in the early part of the week. The utilities sector also rose 2.6%, the consumer staples sector added 1.3%, & the real estate sector moved up .7% sectors. However, the downward pressure came from both the growth & cyclicals sectors as the energy sector dropped a sizable 7.7% (oil prices slid to $71.76/bbl, -3.8%, the consumer discretionary fell -2.6%, the materials dropped 2.4%, & the financials were down 1.6%.

The small caps on the Russell 2000 also moved significantly lower this week & closed at 2,163.24 (-5.1%), but the index remains up +9.5% YTD. The Microcaps pulled back sharply too this week. The overall downward move was evidenced by the iShares Micro-Cap ETF (IWC), which closed at $141.75, -5.06% for the week, now down 8.09% the last two weeks, but remains up 19.47% YTD. I believe that we are also seeing fear or self imposed sell limits causing a current escalation in some sectors in addition to the absentee vacation bound investors and the smaller the company the more evident this truth has been to date this summer. As they say, “selling begets selling.”

MACRO REPORTS & YIELDS

Many more macroeconomic reports surfaced again that continued to paint a mixed economic picture that continues to feed into the Fed’s current low interest rate position that it believes will be sticking around for the foreseeable future as again inflation is currently believed to be ‘transitory’ in nature. On Tuesday, the Total CPI report showed a .9% m/m rise, while on a y/y basis, it is up at 5.4%. However, the Fed’s Chairman Jerome Powell delivered his  semiannual testimony on monetary policy and in short he did not alter his position on interest rates and inflation. The Treasury Budget report for June also confirmed a $174.2B deficit. Note that the fiscal YTD budget deficit is $2.24T. The NFIB Small Business Optimism Index report for June rose to 102.5. On Wednesday, the macroeconomic schedule delivered the Producer Price Index report for final demand that confirmed a rise by 1% m/m, which placed the year-over-year growth rate at 7.3% for total PPI total growth rate at 7.3% y.y. The Federal Reserve’s Beige Book for July also painted the overall economic growth as “moderate to robust.” Interestingly, the weekly MBA Mortgage Applications Index report also showed a sizable 16% leap. On Thursday, the Initial jobless claims for the week ending July 10 confirmed a drop by 26k to 360k , while continuing claims for the week ending July 3 dropped by 126k to 3.241M. The Total industrial production report showed a rise by .4% in June & the capacity utilization rate rose to 75.4%. The Import prices report reveled a 1% rise in June & export prices rose 1.2% in June. The Empire State Manufacturing Survey moved to 43 in July, a sizable leap from the June 17.4 mark. The Philadelphia Fed Index for July fell to 21.9. On Friday, the Total retail sales report showed a rise by .6% wk/wk, while motor vehicle and parts dealers sales dropped by a solid 2%. The preliminary July reading for the University of Michigan Index of Consumer Sentiment fell significantly to 80.8. The Business inventories report confirmed a rise by .5% month/month in May. 

The yield curve moved lower as the 10-yr yield ended down another 13 basis points wk/wk to close at 1.30% (27 basis points lower over 3 weeks) and is now below pre-pandemic levels, while the 2-yr moved 1 basis point lower wk/wk closing at .23%. The U.S. Dollar Index moved higher from 92.10 to close at 92.71.

Next week, the macroeconomic schedule will serve the PMI composite report, the Housing starts report, & the Leading Economic Indicators report.

VP WATCHLIST UPDATES

Please review our complete VP Watchlist that includes Apple (AAPL), Disney (DIS), Tesla (TSLA) & a select group of emerging names.  The pages will allow you to learn more and keep up with these companies daily.

For now, see the summaries or six of the emerging companies from the VP Watchlist below:.

  • Shares of Chinook Therapeutics (KDNY), a clinical-stage biotechnology company developing precision medicines for kidney diseases, closed at $14.32, -3.18% for the week. Chinook is a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company discovering, developing and commercializing precision medicines for rare, severe chronic kidney diseases, a severe and growing worldwide problem with a lack of effective treatments often leading to dialysis, transplantation, and high costs to health care systems. In the U.S. alone, kidney diseases affect an estimated 37 million people and account for over $120 billion in annual costs.
  • KDNY touched a 52-wk high of $21.68 in Dec. 2020 and has been roughly trading in the $14 and change range up to this level after uplisting to the NASDAQ in fall of 2020. It will be interesting to see if can break though the this level as it moves forward with several milestones in the back half of 2021 
    • On June 8th, KDNY announced the presentation of data from the ongoing phase 1/2 study of BION-1301 in patients with IgAN. The findings were presented in an oral presentation at the 58th European Renal Association – European Dialysis and Transplant Association (ERA-EDTA) Virtual Congress. here are the highlights: 1) BION-1301 has been well-tolerated to date in patients with IgAN, with no serious adverse events (SAEs) or treatment discontinuations due to adverse events, 2) Pharmacokinetics (PK) of BION-1301 observed in patients with IgAN are consistent with those previously reported in healthy volunteers and are sufficient to drive rapid and sustained reductions in free APRIL levels, 3) BION-1301 has durably reduced Gd-IgA1, IgA, IgM, and to a lesser extent, IgG levels in patients with IgAN, & 4) BION-1301 has demonstrated a clinically meaningful mean reduction in 24-hour proteinuria (UPCR) in the first several patients enrolled in the study, providing initial proof-of-concept for BION-1301 in IgAN.
    • On May 12, Chinook provided a business update and reported financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2021. Eric Dobmeier, president and chief executive officer of Chinook Therapeutics stated,  “During the first quarter of 2021, Chinook made strong progress with its pipeline of programs for kidney diseases, including initiating the phase 3 ALIGN and phase 2 AFFINITY trials of atrasentan, presenting encouraging clinical data from the BION-1301 program and entering into a strategic collaboration with Evotec. We are well-capitalized and resourced to execute across our programs to generate additional data catalysts and continue building Chinook into a leading kidney disease company.”

    • On April 15, Chinook’s CEO Eric Dobmeier  & CBO Tom Frohlich delivered a presentation titled “Revolutionizing The Treatment of Kidney Disease” followed by a Q&A session at the Tribe Public Network. You can view the video of the event here. 


  • Shares of INmune Bio, Inc. (NASDAQ: INMB) closed at $21.12 this week after reaching $29 prior, up considerably since we added them to the list in May when it was trading in the $9 range. 
  • This week on July 14th, INmune Bio announced that it has entered into a definitive agreement with one healthcare focused institutional investor and one family office for the purchase and sale of 1,818,182 shares of its common stock at a price of $22 per share for gross proceeds of approximately $40 million in a registered direct offering. The closing of the offering is expected to occur on or about July 16, 2021, subject to the satisfaction of customary closing conditions. A.G.P./Alliance Global Partners is acting as the sole placement agent for the offering. INmune Bio intends to use the net proceeds from this offering for working capital and general corporate purposes and to advance the development of its product candidates and expand its pipeline. This includes the completion and data readout from the Company’s planned Phase 2 clinical trial of its lead clinical candidate, XPro1595, in patients suffering from Alzheimer’s disease, which is expected to commence by the end of 2021. “With this investment, we expect the Company’s Phase II program in Alzheimer’s disease is completely funded said RJ Tesi MD, CEO of Inmune Bio.
    • On July 12th,  INmune Bio, Inc. announced that the first patient has been treated in the company’s Phase 1 clinical trial of its Natural Killer (NK) cell priming platform, INKmune, as a potential treatment for high-risk myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS). This Phase 1 open label study will enroll nine patients with a confirmed diagnosis of MDS with excess blasts in a 3×3 dose escalation protocol. The primary endpoint is the safety and tolerability of INKmune when administered intravenously. Most secondary endpoints are biomarkers and include the change in percentage of blasts in peripheral blood and bone marrow, the change in autologous NK cell activity and functional maturity into tumor-induced memory-like NK cells in vivo. The overall response rate using WHO criteria, and duration of response will also be reported. READ MORE.
    • On July 7th, The Maxim Group’s analyst raised his price target from $32 to $42 today.
    • On June 14th, INMB announced that it had entered into a new $15M credit facility with Silicon Valley Bank (SVB) and an affiliate of SVB Financial Group. INmune intends to use the proceeds from the facility to partially fund the buyout of an option held by Xencor, Inc.(XNCR), resulting from INmune’s in-licensing of XPro1595 (now known by its generic name, pegipanermin) in October 2017. XPro1595 is a next-generation inhibitor of tumor necrosis factor (TNF) that uses a dominant-negativeTNF technology that is very different from approved TNF inhibitors that block the effects of both soluble and trans-membrane TNF. Pegipanermin neutralizes soluble TNF, without affecting trans-membrane TNF or TNF receptors. XPro1595 could have substantial beneficial effects in patients with Alzheimer’s and other neurodegenerative diseases by decreasing neuroinflammation. Total consideration to be paid to Xencor by INmune is $18.3 million, comprised of $15 million of cash and $3.3 million of INMB shares at a price of $17.14 resulting in the issuance of 192,533 shares. Pursuant to the original 2017 in-licensing agreement, INmune granted Xencor an option to purchase an additional number of shares of common stock equal to 10% of INmune’s fully diluted company shares for a period of seven years. The retirement of the Xencor option eliminates an estimated 2.1 million shares of potential future common stock dilution upon exercise of the option.

    • With the June 7th FDA approval of Biogen’s (BIIB) controversial and much debated Alzheimer’s Drug behind us now, the focus on the AD space has been turned up and is shining on INMB’s program and others in the space. This week, Eli Lilly (LLY) received the FDA’s Breakthrough Therapy Designation for their investigational antibody therapy for Alzheimer’s disease (AD) potentially increasing the excitement around the space.
    • On May 18th, I hosted Immune Bio’s CEO RJ Tesi at the Tribe Public Presentation & Q&A Event for a fascinating discussion and his presentation titled “Advancing Treatment To Repair Our Aging Innate Immune System to Fight Alzheimer’s.” Please view the event video here. 
    • On May 5th, INMB reported its financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2021 and provided a business update on Wednesday, May 5th. RJ Tesi, M.D., chief executive officer of INmune Bio stated, “We continued to treat patients in the Phase I XPro1595 Alzheimer’s disease trial and expand the extensive biomarker data. The interim data that we reported in January confirms that XPro1595 decreases neuroinflammation in patients with Alzheimer’s disease and supports transitioning to a blinded randomized placebo-controlled Phase II trial later this year. We regard these results as extremely promising and look forward to further confirmation of XPro1595’s potential benefit to these patients in a rigorously designed Phase 2 study. We will report the additional biomarker data later this Summer. We have started screening patients in the Phase I INKmune NK cell priming platform trial in patients with high-risk myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS). MDS is a serious hematopoietic stem cell disorder in which patients have functionally defective NK cells, and approximately one-third of cases progress to AML. We created a short 5-minute video that we believe does a wonderful job explaining why NK cells fail to clear cancer and how the cellular and molecular interactions by INKmune activate NK cells to kill resistant tumors. The video can be found by clicking here.



  • InMed Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NASDAQ: INM) is leading clinical-stage pharmaceutical company developing cannabinoid-based drug candidates for high unmet medical needs and IntegraSyn, a proprietary and cost effective manufacturing approach for synthesized rare cannabinoids.

  • Shares of InMed closed at closed trading this week at $2.66, -9.22% for the week. The 52-wk range is $2.55 -$8.94.
    • On July 2, InMed announced that it had closed the previously announced private placement and after deducting the placement agent fees and estimated offering expenses payable by the Company, the Company received net proceeds of approximately US$11 million. H.C. Wainwright & Co. acted as the exclusive placement agent for the private placement. Under the terms of the private placement, an aggregate of 4,036,327 common shares (or common share equivalents in lieu thereof) and warrants to purchase up to an aggregate of 4,036,327 common shares were purchased, at an effective purchase price of US$2.973 per common share (or common stock equivalent in lieu thereof) and associated warrant. The warrants have an exercise price of US$2.848 per share, are exercisable immediately and have a term of five years. InMed intends to use the net proceeds from the offering to continue pipeline development, advance business development activities and for general working capital purposes.

    • On June 29th, INM announced that it has entered into a non-binding letter of intent (the “LOI”) to acquire BayMedica Inc. (“BayMedica”), a private company based in Nevada and California that specializes in the manufacture and commercialization of rare cannabinoids. BayMedica is a revenue-stage biotechnology company leveraging its significant expertise in synthetic biology and pharmaceutical chemistry to develop efficient, scalable, and proprietary manufacturing approaches to produce high quality, regulatory-compliant rare cannabinoids for consumer applications. BayMedica is currently commercializing the rare cannabinoid CBC (cannabichromene) as a B2B supplier to distributors and manufacturers marketing products in the health and wellness sector. BayMedica is currently planning additional rare cannabinoid launches for the coming year. In addition to their manufacturing and commercial activities in the health and wellness arena, BayMedica is researching cannabinoid analogs as potential drug candidates for pharmaceutical purposes. Those BayMedica proprietary compounds are based upon the structures of naturally-occurring cannabinoids and are designed to either augment the potential therapeutic effect against specific diseases or enhance product safety, or both.

    • On Thursday, June 17th, InMed Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ: INM) announced that its continued optimization of IntegraSyn™ has increased the cannabinoid yield to a level of 5 g/L, further improving the economics of this proprietary manufacturing approach in advance of large-scale production. InMed’s cannabinoid yield of 5 g/L significantly exceeds currently reported industry yields. The Company has continued to make important steps to further optimize the IntegraSyn™ manufacturing process, resulting in the improved yield of 5 g/L, surpassing InMed’s previously reported yield levels of 2 g/L, an already commercially viable yield. The impact of improved yield is a significant reduction in the overall cost of manufacturing due to greater amount of cannabinoid produced per batch. InMed is now focused on manufacturing scale-up to larger batch sizes in the second half of calendar year 2021. “We are very excited by these impressive yield levels that further validates the IntegraSyn™ manufacturing approach as a commercially viable solution for large-scale, pharmaceutical-grade GMP production of rare cannabinoids. While we continue to refine the process, we are now focused on advancing the program towards the next key milestones, including the manufacture of our first large-scale batch through a GMP-ready process in the coming months. We continue to believe InMed’s proprietary IntegraSyn™ approach will be one of the most important manufacturing processes for pharma-grade cannabinoids,” stated Eric A. Adams, President and Chief Executive Officer of InMed.

  • Shares of Atossa Therapeutics, Inc. (Nasdaq: ATOS), a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company seeking to discover and develop innovative medicines in areas of significant unmet medical need with a current focus on breast cancer and COVID-19, closed at closed at $4.50 down from from its recently achieved 52-wk high of $9.80 and is trading 20.43M shares a day. ATOS is still up a monster 373.68% YTD!
  • On July 15th, An international team of scientists and data analysts, led by Physician-Scientist & CEO of Atossa Therapeutics,  Steven Quay, MD, PhD, published a paper entitled, “Science Not Speculation Should Inform the Investigation of the Origin of COVID-19,” in which they conclude: “Until new evidence is found, an investigation of the pathway for the origin of COVID-19 should proceed with the assumption that a laboratory-acquired infection or research-related accident is at least as likely, if not more likely, than a natural zoonotic transmission.” The paper was submitted to the Subcommittee on Investigations and Oversight hearing, Principles for Outbreak Investigation: COVID-19 and Future Infectious Diseases,” held on July 14, 2021. The preprint is available available here
    • On July 7th, Atossa Therapeutics, Inc. (Nasdaq: ATOS), announced that it has received regulatory approval from HREC (Human Research Ethics Committee) to open a clinical study of AT-H201 in Australia. The nebulized formulation, AT-H201, is being developed as an inhalation therapy for moderately to severely-ill hospitalized COVID-19 patients and for “long-haul” patients with post-infection pulmonary disease. AT-H201 is a proprietary combination of two drugs previously approved by the FDA to treat other diseases and by other administration routes. AT-H201 is intended to be inhaled via a nebulizer to improve compromised lung function for moderate to severely ill, hospitalized COVID-19 patients and for “long-haul” patients with post-infection pulmonary disease. In May 2020, we completed in vitro testing of AT-H201 which showed that the components of AT-H201 inhibit SARS-CoV-2 infectivity of VERO cells, which is a standard cell type being used to study infectivity of the coronavirus. The AT-H201 components were found to be at least four times more potent than Remdesivir and at least 20 times more potent than Hydroxychloroquine. Potency was measured by microscopic examination of the cytopathic effect caused by SARS-CoV-2 in VERO cells.
    • Atossa was recently added to the Russell 2000 and Russell 3000 Indexes.
    • Atossa management held a webinar on June 9th with Tribe Public to discuss their final data from its Phase 2 clinical study of oral Endoxifen administered in the “window of opportunity” between diagnosis of breast cancer and surgery. The study enrolled seven newly-diagnosed patients with ER+ and human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 negative (HER2-) stage 1 or 2 invasive breast cancer, requiring mastectomy or lumpectomy. Patients received the Atossa proprietary oral Endoxifen for at least 14 days from the time of diagnosis up to the day of surgery. The primary endpoint was to determine if the administration of oral Endoxifen reduces the tumor activity as measured by Ki-67. The secondary endpoints were safety and tolerability and assessment of the study drug on expression levels of both estrogen and progesterone receptors, and correlation between Ki-67 and Endoxifen levels. The Phase 2 study was conducted on behalf of Atossa by Avance Clinical, a leading Australian CRO.
    • On Friday, June 11th, Atossa announced that it has received approval from the Swedish Medical Product Agency (MPA) to initiate a Phase 2 clinical study of its oral Endoxifen for the reduction of mammographic breast density (MBD). Studies conducted by others have shown that MBD reduces the ability of mammograms to detect cancer (sensitivity) and increases the risk of developing breast cancer. Additional studies show a correlation between reducing MBD and a reduction in the incidence of breast cancer. The primary objective of the MBD study is to determine the dose-response relationship of daily oral Endoxifen on mammographic breast density reduction, with secondary endpoints assessing safety and tolerability. The Phase 2 study will be randomized, double-blinded and placebo-controlled. It will be conducted in Stockholm and will include approximately 240 pre-menopausal women with measurable MBD who will receive daily doses of oral Endoxifen or placebo for six months. South General Hospital in Stockholm will be conducting the study. The study is being led by principal investigator Per Hall, M.D., Ph.D., Head of the Department of Medical Epidemiology and Biostatistics at Karolinska Institutet. The study is also subject to approval by the institutional ethics committees and enrollment will not begin unless and until all approvals are obtained and COVID restrictions are lifted in Sweden.

    • On May 17, INVO announced financial results for the first quarter of 2021 ended March 31, 2021 and provides a business update. Steve Shum, Chief Executive Officer of INVO Bioscience stated, “This was an exciting start to the year 2021 for INVO Bioscience as we advanced our INVO Clinic strategy with the signing of our first U.S.-based INVOcell exclusive facility in Birmingham, Alabama, the signing of a partnership agreement to establish and operate a center in Northern California, and the completion of our product registration in Mexico. We expect these initial centers to become operational in the second half of the year. Throughout this year, we have expanded our real-world experience data and positive results with INVOcell, enhanced our online training tools, materials, and capabilities and have experienced a substantial increase in active training sessions for our international partners and distributors. We believe the combination of strong commercialization partnerships and company-owned clinics, both in the U.S. and around the world, is key to expanding INVOcell’s adoption within the fertility industry. In addition to the progress made executing new commercialization agreements, we have strengthened our marketing capabilities to support the INVOcell-only centers and our growing number of distribution partners. Meryle Lynn Chamberlain, a tenured women’s health and fertility solution marketing professional, joined us as Director of Marketing in March 2021, while Rebecca Messina, current Senior Advisor at McKinsey & Co. and former Global Chief Marketing Officer at both Uber and Beam Suntory joined our board of directors in April 2021. As we look to increase access to care and expand fertility treatment across the globe, our market positioning and overall strategies are more important than ever. The addition of Meryle Lynn and Rebecca will enhance our ability to successfully accomplish these goals. As we look to the remainder of 2021, we have set a number of key objectives, including the opening of our first company-owned clinics in Mexico and the United States. Additionally, we will seek to build our international revenues this year through our growing list of international distribution partners as they finish training, and we complete local product registration requirements. Of note, we are extremely pleased to see the initial INVO procedures performed recently in Spain and Malaysia, which reflects the groundwork done by our team in these specific markets, which we believe will help in further expanding the overall awareness of the potential outside of the U.S. Finally, we are continuing to advance our 5-day label expansion efforts with the FDA in the U.S. market with a goal of completing this effort in 2021. It remains our belief that there is strong global demand for fertility services and INVOcell is well-positioned through our growing, global footprint to play a key role in helping to turn the dream of creating a family for millions of people around the world into a reality through our accessible, efficient, and affordable fertility treatment.”
