Risks of Investing in Core One Labs: High

Bottom Line: Is Core One Labs Stock a Good Buy?
Core One Labs is a life sciences company in Canada looking to turn psychedelics into medicines. Various indications for them could include alcoholism and depression. They do hold IP on thin strips for oral/sublingual delivery of medical compounds.
They have recently announced that they can now produce psilocybin at scale in a cGMP facility to be used as their API. They claim the costs to do so are $100s per gram instead of the market prices of $10,000 per gram for synthetic psilocybin. This could turn them into a contract manufacturing company which just supplies API to other companies.
The larger news for them is the preparations to list on the Nasdaq, which would give them access to huge liquidity. To do this they will consolidate shares in a 8:1 ratio. Developing drugs is a long and expensive process. Listing on the Nasdaq could supply them with all the capital they need to be successful for this.
The problem with them is that they have an accumulated deficit of $130 million and for Q1 2021 a loss of over $24 million. They need capital fast and if the Nasdaq listing doesn’t happen, they will be in an extremely difficult position. For these reasons, we see them having way too much risk moving forward. They may yield short term gains for the rest of 2021 (thanks CanninBot!) but longer term, we give them a Weak rating.
