Whats teased by Jeff Siegel? He says, “After this announcement is made on December 4, 2020, a new world will exist”

Checking out the latest "Day Zero" pitch from Green Chip Stocks

By Travis Johnson, Stock Gumshoe, October 15, 2020

I’ve seen this ad circulated so many times, with adjusting deadlines, that I didn’t realize I hadn’t specifically covered this pitch for my favorite readers… at least, not in its current iteration with a new company in that “Day Zero” position.

“Day Zero” is now trumpeted as being December 4, but not long ago it was August 16, with the same company being teased, and before that very similar ads pointing at a different anti-aging company shouted about November 13, 2019 as “Day Zero”… and before that, August 4, 2019, June 13, 2019, and March 26, 2019.

Those 2019 “Day Zero” teaser pitches were all pointing at ResTORbio (TORC), which then changed its name to Adicet Bio (and did a 7:1 share consolidation) — so that November 13, 2019 tease about this being the day the world changed was kind of true for folks who had bet big on TORC… they did release important news that day, and then saw their shares lose 87% of their value over the next two days.

For anyone who’s new to these parts, that pick actually came in second place when I was deciding on the coveted “Turkey of the Year” winner for 2019 last Thanksgiving, and the “world changing” news was that their drug trial was a failure… which is what led to them essentially being used as a reverse merger vehicle to take Adicet public, with some net cash and some lingering programs being all that’s left of the original TORC business that was supposed to end aging as we knew it.

(Incidentally, the winner of that “Turkey of the Year” last year enjoyed a similar fate… though even worse, I’d argue. That was Crop Infrastructure, which briefly tried to sell itself but instead ended up doing a 15:1 share consolidation and changing its name to Vert Infrastructure (VVV on the CSE now), a move that did not stop the bleeding at all.)

So what, then, is the new “Day Zero” stock that’s going to end aging? Let’s start over and look at the clues being used in recent versions of the ad, which has run for several months but, in its latest “December 4 is Day Zero” iteration that I’ve been getting recently (several readers sent it in this week), starts out like this:

“After this announcement is made on December 4, 2020… a new world will exist.

“Insiders are calling this moment in time: Day Zero

“The history of humanity has been defined by a few epic, course-changing events…

“That alter life as we know it forever.

“Sometimes for bad…

“But often for good.

“And on December 4, 2020, it will happen again.

“This event will be very, very good…

“And could make you very, very rich.”

So what’s going to happen that day? The wording is very similar to past “Day Zero” pitches and is pretty generic, but this is what Siegel says:

“On that day, at an invitation-only meeting of the world’s most connected and influential people…

“A company executive will step to the podium and make an announcement so stunning…

“That it will rank at the top of the most life-changing events ever recorded in history.”

And, frankly, they ladle on the hyperbole pretty thick for a teaser pitch for a $99 newsletter…

“Folks still remember where they were when we landed on the moon…

“And when the Berlin Wall fell…

“And when bin Laden was killed….

“Think of the big bang creating our universe…

“Or how the time before Jesus was born is called B.C.

“And after his birth is known as A.D.

“It’s that big.”

Ridiculous, right? We know that’s stupid, but we can’t help it… we want that answer!

And what is the pitch about? It’s no longer about ResTORbio, of course, that ship has sailed (or sunk, perhaps), but it’s still an anti-aging story… just about a different company with a different cure. Here’s how they put it:

“This Is the End of Aging as We Know It….

“… on December 4, 2020, that changes.

“In that invitation-only room…

“Packed with the wealthiest insiders on the planet…

“The chief executive officer of this company will reveal scientific proof detailing a new treatment…

“That makes age-related illnesses…

“Like heart failure…

“Stroke…

“Chronic pain…

“Brain diseases like Alzheimer’s…

“And many more…

“A thing of the past.”

OK, who wants to take the “under” on making Alzheimer’s Disease and heart failure a “thing of the past” on December 4? We’ve been fighting those ailments and diseases since before modern science even knew what they were (and arguably they still don’t really know what’s up with Alzheimer’s Disease), so it’s absolutely not true that all “diseases of aging” will be cured on December 4.

Whether or not this stock Siegel is touting ends up being worthwhile at the current price is a whole ‘nother thing, of course — just clear your mind of that absurdity first, so we can take a look at whatever the stock is with some perspective. If you think of this as curing all disease of aging, and that’s the mindset with which you begin your research, you’re going to be too busy daydreaming about the next Pfizer or the next Genentech, and you’re probably not going to look under the hood very closely to see if what you were told was a V8 engine is actually just a basket of angry squirrels.

So we know it’s some kind of anti-aging thing, and they might be due to make some sort of announcement around December 4. What other clues do we get ab
