Amfil Technologies Inc. Reports $2,445,949 In Fiscal Q3 2018 Revenue, Up 35% Year Over Year

Distribution
A
mfil Technologies Inc. (OTC Pink: MFE) is pleased to report a 35% increase in year over year Fiscal Q3 Revenue at $2,445,949, up from $1,809,064 for Q3 2017, with gross profits up from $827,874 to $1,450,649. Comparative year over year growth for the quarter saw a 35% increase despite Q3 being the company’s historically slowest quarter. The January to March quarter is not usually a large quarter for distribution which is a large part of the company’s overall revenue stream and is also affected by returns on holiday items, redemption of gift cards, and the industry-wide attendance dips during the post-holiday season, all which effects the bottom line.

TWMJF (WEED) breakdown, 5/19/18

Investors, Management, News
T
here is no question, WEED is in an uptrend. Day traders know that WEED cannot short Monday. Monday is a day of OC trading that for the most part, does not allow shorts. Monday will be a HUGE day for WMJF, up nearly 15%. Smart OC traders will ride the day up, and sell and the end of the day because the shorts come back on uesday to hit the over-bought conditions. Be smart traders. Buy WMJF at early AM, ride the green all day. ake profits at the end of the day. his is what will happen. Look at WEED's (WMJF's) history. Huge green days on Canada closed days, then pullbacks on the day after. as the shorts hit. WMJF will have one of it's biggest days on record Monday. Even higher if NYSE hits as CGC. his stock has nowhere to go up, and anyone who tells you otherwise is shorting and trying to cover. his is as BULL as a market gets. Watch 10-20% gains Monday on WMJF with low-volume, as shorts take a day off and WEED will not be trading. Want to make a quick 15% on your money? Buy WMJF first thing Monday, before it runs. Sell an hour before market close. I'm not on here to pump any stock. It's downright obvious what will happen to WMJF on Monday, and there is a lot of money to be made. I made millions. I'm on here now to help other people improve their lives. I'm now retired comfortably and feel the need to help other people. While I still have millions to be made, WMJF WILL RUN HEAVY GREEN MONDAY. No doubt in my mind. Don't listen to people on here that say otherwise. If you want to make some serious money on Monday, buy WMJF early AM and sell about 3pm. Don't wait until 3:30pm, because profit taking will already be under way. Maybe even 2:30 if charts are showing that. I want you all to make money, and I'm trying to help. his is not a pump by any means. I will be buying about 300,000 shares of WMJF first thing on dip Monday morning, and unloading about half of that at 2:30pm. he other half is being held long anticipating NYSE listing and institutional investors. hese people saying AH is coming... lol. AH is only 18% away. AH was based off speculation. New AH is astronomical compared to chart analysis. Charts are supposed to tell the future from the past. However, in a market like this... full-scale legalization has never happened. here is no credible past with which to compare. his is a budding industry with credible financials. Watch CGC to $60 USD by August 1st. Small dip in August, followed by another crazy bull run September thru December. Don't believe me? Look what these stocks have done for the last 5 years in late-summer through January. Nothing but bull. Given legalization (92% chance), this market is in it's baby stages. People who keep pointing out market cap are so mistaken. Canopy Growth Corp. has operations in about 10 world-wide countries, approximately 30B worth of market cap. Canada (as Bruce has stated) offers them about 40% market cap of the recreational Canadian market. By estimations, this adds about 6-10B of market cap. his company is undervalued by almost 4x, even with current valuations priced-in. here is a reason WEED is outperforming other stocks on a consistent basis. hey are the market king, with the smartest management team. hey understand shareholders and their value and importance, and place the interest of shareholders first. his can be demonstrated by Bruce unleashing acquisition news at the same time as NYSE news, basically cancelling the negative affect of a very small share dilution. Expect to see about $100/share by year's end. I'm a private investor that does my heavy DD. his stock is INSANELY cheap right now. I've been loading long term, and taking advantage of short term NR's. Averaging down is past news. I'm accumulating as much as possible right now. We will never see these stock prices again. Agree with me or not, I'm trying to help hundreds/thousands of you with making a pretty penny on Monday. However, we will see a small 2% dip about 15 mins after open. After that, it's off to the races. Expect some SERIOUS profit taking at the end of the day, placing us almost down to opening price. Haters can argue. However, this is just about fact. Make money, that's what this sub is all about, right? EDI: grammar submitted by /u/Jefferzon420 [link] [comments]

T
alk of legalizing marijuana throughout North America has been growing like a weed. Up to 88% of Americans favor its medicinal use, thanks to a growing body of research supporting marijuana's use for medical purposes. Some studies even suggest it can be used for a variety of medical issues including pain, nausea, loss of appetite, Parkinson's disease, inflammatory bowel disease, post-traumatic stress disorder, epilepsy, and multiple sclerosis and even traumatic brain injuries - the list goes on. Several legitimate players in the medical marijuana sector include Scythian Biosciences Corporation (SX-V: SCYB) (OC: SCCYF), GW Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ: GWPH), OrganiGram Holdings Inc. (SX-V: OGI) (OC: OGRMF), Corbus Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ: CRBP) and Aphria Inc. (OC: APHQF) (SX: APH). As more than 29 U.S. states plus Washington, D.C. have approved its medicinal use, and as eight states have approved its recreational use, it's clear that legal marijuana stocks are here to stay. On top of that, 61% of Americans now believe marijuana use should be legal. Whether it be Scythian Biosciences Corporation's cannabis-based treatment for traumatic brain injury or GW Pharmaceuticals' Epidolex drug currently under review for childhood epilepsy, investors are seeing promising steps forward for the medical marijuana industry. Medical Marijuana Sweeping the Continent wenty years after California legalized medical marijuana, it's become a multi-billion dollar business, says USA oday. "Millions of Americans believe that marijuana helps them. hey say it relieves pain, improves their appetite and eases the side effects of chemotherapy. Others swear by it for helping with PSD or anxiety or seizures. Millions use it just to sleep better." Aside from PSD and anxiety, GW Pharmaceuticals has been picking up momentum on indications the U.S. Food and Drug Administration may approve its cannabis-derived drug Epidolex for treatment of seizure symptoms of Lennon-Gastaut syndrome (LGS) and Dravnet syndrome. Peak sales are estimated to be $500 million if approved. Zynerba Pharmaceuticals is working on treatments for Fragile X Syndrome (a genetic condition that causes developmental issues), developmental and epileptic encephalopathies, adult refractory seizures, and ourette syndrome. Corbus Pharmaceuticals is working on Lenabasum (formerly known as anabasum), a synthetic, oral, small-molecule, selective cannabinoid receptor type 2 (CB2) agonist that preferentially binds to CB2 expressed on activated immune cells and fibroblasts for the treatment of systemic sclerosis, cystic fibrosis, dermatomyositis and systemic lupus erythematosus. Scythian Biosciences Corporation (SX.V: SCYB) (OC: SCCYF) also is just beginning to gain momentum, advancing its treatment efforts for concussions and traumatic brain injury with its proprietary cannabinoid-based combination drug therapy. he Cannabis Commitment to Brain rauma Remedies Scythian Biosciences is committed to advancing prevention and treatment efforts for concussion and traumatic brain injury with its proprietary cannabinoid-based combination drug therapy. Recently, the company teamed up with Isodiol International Inc., an industry leader in pharmaceutical grade phytochemical compounds production, as well as CBD consumer products development. his partnership will allow Scythian to tap into Isodiol's experienced, top tier team of chemists, technicians, and professors that yield the purest government-approved CBD available. Particularly, the way Scythian accomplishes its top-tier brain-trauma medication is through a combination of drug molecules called CB2 receptor agonists and NMDA receptor antagonists. CB2 receptor agonists, principally a compound known as cannabidiol (CBD), is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid compound naturally found in the marijuana plant that is known to resolve inflammation without the associated high, quickly, effectively, and systemically shutting the inflammatory response down. NMDA antagonists inhibit white blood cell activity within injured brain tissue, stopping cytokine release and further brain damage. CB2 agonists modulate the inflammatory response itself, easing the initial swelling and the resulting pressure of injured brain tissue against the skull. Scythian's ambitions doesn't stop there. he company has recently announced its letter of intent to acquire MMJ International Investments Inc., sole holder of an Argentina-based pharmaceutical import and distribution company. his move, along with Isodol's ability to export the pure, natural CBD anywhere in the world, including Argentina, Colombia, and Jamaica, could exponentially expedite Scythian's international footprint and industry advancements. he Need for Medical Marijuana he medical community believes they've found an alternative treatment to help patients - medical marijuana. Medical researchers have already found that it can slow the progress of protein deposits in the brain, which may be part of what causes Alzheimer's. Animal studies have shown that it can also kill certain cancer cells. Some animal and small human studies show that cannabinoids can have a "substantial analgesic effect," notes CNN. It may even help lessen dependency on opioids. he medical community has even looked at its impact on glaucoma patients, finding that it can help lower eye pressure and blood pressure. Researchers have even found that some cannabis chemicals may help prevent muscle spasms, pain, tremors, and stiffness in cases of multiple sclerosis. Right now, there is a clear need for medical marijuana. Since 2014, more than $1 billion has been raised by marijuana businesses. he values of these businesses have gone on an upward trajectory consistently thanks to high investments and product demand. For example, prominent marijuana producers like Aphria saw their stock skyrocket from around $5.00 this time last year to as high as $24.75 in early 2018, close to a 400% gain. Companies like Scythian Biosciences Corp. are on the right path. Potential Comparables: GW Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ: GWPH) GW has established a world leading position in the development of plant-derived cannabinoid therapeutics through its proven drug discovery and development processes, intellectual property portfolio and regulatory and manufacturing expertise. Its lead product candidate is Epidiolex, developed for certain rare and severe early-onset, drug-resistant epilepsy syndromes. OrganiGram Holdings Inc. (SX-V: OGI) (OCQB: OGRMF) Organigram Inc. is a licensed producer of medical marijuana in Canada. he company is focused on producing the highest-quality, condition-specific medical marijuana for patients in Canada. Its portfolio includes dry cannabis and cannabis oil, along with accessories like vaporizers. Corbus Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ:CRBP) CRBP focuses on the development and commercialization of various therapeutic products to treat inflammatory and fibrotic diseases. he company's lead product candidate is lenabasum, a synthetic oral endocannabinoid-mimetic drug that is in Phase III clinical trials for the treatment of systemic sclerosis, cystic fibrosis, dermatomyositis, and systemic lupus erythematosus diseases. Aphria Inc. (OCQB: APHQF) (SX:APH) Aphria is one of Canada's lowest-cost medical cannabis producers. he company sells its products through both retail and wholesale channels.
