A second domino is falling in the world of psychedelic stock investing.
Last week, Psychedelic Spotlight reported that Mind Cure Health (CSE: MCUR) (OTCQX: MCURF) was halting its psychedelic medicines research, following a “strategic review” undertaken by the company.
In short, they ran out of money.
As I have stated repeatedly, running a psychedelic research company is ridiculously expensive, and many smaller companies with low market caps and little money in the bank will find it hard to survive in a market context of low stock prices.
At the time, I speculated that “we shouldn’t be surprised if this is just the first domino,” and unfortunately, it didn’t take much time for the prophecy to be realized.
On March 19th, psychedelics company Core One Labs (CSE: COOL) (OTC: CLABF) announced that they are “working to investigate investment and potential takeover opportunities by strategic psychedelics or pharmaceutical companies.”
Or, in other words, they too have run out of money and are looking for a financial savior.
This wasn’t particularly surprising. Taking a cursory look at their financials, we can see the dire position the company is in. As of the end of September, the company had $587,000 CAD in the bank, and they were spending more than $5 million per quarter. With a market cap of around $32 million, Core One would have to dilute their stock by more than 15% each quarter to keep spending at the same levels. This, obviously, is an unsustainable proposition.
So, with two psychedelic medicine companies essentially announcing that they no longer have the financial wherewithal to continue operations, does it mean that the end of psychedelic stocks is near?
No, it most certainly does not.
To start, we need to understand that the psychedelics companies that are beginning to falter are the ones who were already in bad financial shape. There are many companies that have strong financials, and do not need to worry about refinancing any time soon. A short and non-exhaustive list of these companies include: atai Life Sciences (Nasdaq: ATAI); MindMed (Nasdaq: MNMD) (NEO: MMED); and Small Pharma (TSXV: DMT) (OTCQB: DMTTF). Even if — and I judge this to be likely — more small-cap psychedelics companies follow Mind Cure and Core One Labs’ lead, the more financially stable companies won’t be affected.
