News Update: September 7

Congratulations! CEI has now posted a double - 100% - hitting $1.04 today.

While we do expect more gains to come from CEI, everyone should consider booking your profits. We do believe CEI will be higher later and momentum continues, but there is a risk of a pullback since it has doubled so quickly. Please consider taking at least some profits here.

News Update: August 24

This morning, CEI announced its majority-owned subsidiary, Viking Energy Group, Inc., entered into an Exclusive Intellectual Property License Agreement with ESG Clean Energy, LLC regarding ESG's patent rights and know-how related to stationary electric power generation, including methods to utilize heat and capture carbon dioxide. The license is exclusive for all of Canada (unlimited number of systems), and non-exclusive for up to twenty-five locations in the United States.

The ESG Clean Energy System is designed to generate clean electricity from internal combustion engines and utilize waste heat to capture - 100% of the carbon dioxide (CO2) emitted from the engine without loss of efficiency, and in a manner to facilitate the production of precious commodities (e.g. distilled/ de-ionized water; UREA (NH4); ammonia (NH3); ethanol; and methanol) for sale.

This is excellent news for CEI and is giving the stock the attention it deserves. This should help bring investors back into the stock and give it a bounce today and that attention should help drive more momentum which is what we've been waiting for! CEI traded over $0.45 in the pre-market hours and looks to open around $0.42. If the stock can hold on here, more attention will be coming.

The proceeds from the transaction are to be used by Viking to facilitate the potential acquisition of an approximate 60.5% interest in a company engaged in the manufacture and supply of industrial engines, power generation products, services and custom energy solutions; facilitate the potential execution of an agreement with respect to the license of a patented carbon-capture system for exclusive use in Canada and for a specified number of locations in the United States; and for general working capital purposes.

Conclusion

This is a riskier play than we normally do, but we believe that CEI is at or near a bottom and the market is missing something big. The market is the boss, but sometimes, it's not so smart. Sooner or later, it will catch up. That's how folks find undervalued plays and get in early.

CEI is an energy company that has been around for quite a while. It's had management and complete business changes and there's plenty to not be so proud of over the years. But, this is the energy sector afterall. Just like financial companies (our exprience)... Lehman Brothers, MF Global, Thornburg Mortgage, ... we've seen many buried in the graveyard with many others almost die, but to have their assets taken over and reworked. That's kind of like CEI. It's survived, and it is certainly not the same company it started out as. Even the CEO took the helm just last December.

What makes us like CEI? A company that's had numerous chances for many years? Well, the current management for one. Many might say that they're chasing the new, "shiny" object. But no, they've invested in it - and not the object itself, but a company that helps that shiny object work. We're talking about crypto-currency, of course. No, CEI and it's investment (Simson-Maxwell) are not in the crypto business, but they provide specialized energy solutions which now include the crypto miners and other financial exchange businesses.

Simson-Maxwell provides power system solutions that are optimized for cryptocurrency mining projects. Efficient, durable, and reliable systems provide maximum uptime to ensure that productivity and revenue streams are maximized. Mining certain currencies (like Bitcoin) takes an immense amount of power. Large, professional miners require huge, uninterrupted streams of electricity. On top of that, large backup power in case the lights go out.

The crypto-currency markets are going through a consolidation phase. We see it, even when others don't - yet. Just like the gambling & online sports gambling consolidation that is happening right now - literally this week. DraftKings just this week purchased Golden Nugget for $1.56 Billion. That's after Penn National Gaming announced plans to acquire betting powerhouse The Score.

Right now, we think that Rush Street Interactive (Symbol: RSI) will be the next to get acquired - perhaps by FanDual or even MGM. But, as of the time of this writing, RSI is just under $13.00, so we cannot profile it. We think RSI will soon be acquired and if the valuation of Golden Nugget and The Score hold up, $25+ could be expected.

We're not saying CEI will be acquired, not in the least. But, we're saying that major crypto miners are consolidating (or being acquired) and the larger they get, the larger CEI's Viking energy's customers become. Winning one large order will propel Viking to become a major player. Once that happens, others will follow.

On the technical side, we've noticed that every time the Slow Stochastic crossed up when the stock is in an oversold condition, it has spiked. Below, we've noted each time that has happened recently and you can see the result. It just recently happened again.

We've also noticed a lot of new chatter on social media and traders' channels. The interest with professional day/momentum/swing traders is ramping up fast. We could see a move soon and if it's quick enough, we may see a bit of a short squeeze. More than 20% of the freely tradeable "float" shares is currently shorted. There is also just 25 million shares in float right now.

CEI has extended the maturity date of its promissory notes from December 11, 2022 to January 1, 2024. These notes can be converted in part or in whole into shares. That would of course be dilutive, but they have a fixed conversion rate of $1.25 per share. So, until we reach at least $1.25, these notes will not be converted into shares and sold. We have plenty of room.

We see the interest in CEI ramping up, the stock is at or near a bottom and technical indicators are perking up quickly. To stay on the NYSE, CEI will need to trade at over $1.00. Management has already stated they believe there is no need for a reverse split to make that $1.00. In other words, they're confident they will reach the $1.00 minimim bid price soon. So do we.

We believe we will see CEI at $1.00 or more fairly soon - the next few weeks to a month or two for a 100% gain. We believe there is more that is possible, but the overhang of convertible shares at $1.25 might slow any rise for a short while.

As mentioned, this is a riskier play than we normally profile. However, the risk/reward ratio is very much in our favor. CEI has a 52-week low of $0.43 and we believe a stop-loss at $0.41-$0.42 should be considered.
