    What are traders? How are we doing out there? Hope you guys are ready for another specks attack. We have a great one. We're going to get into our headlines, our watch lists. We're going to get into some winners and losers. Then we'll talk about the calendar. What dates are coming up that you guys need to be informed on?

    And of course, we'll get to some ticker time. Welcome to it. Specks attack hit the like let's get it started.

    What's going on, everybody out there. Yes. I'm catching up with the chat. What's going on. Jason's blog. We are here. We are. We will see everything you put in that as comments. So if you're new to the show, definitely say hello, born to be free. Knows how we get it. Started smash the, like what? Spring on my man, Chris pedia.

    What's up, man. What's going on brother? Yeah. How we doing? It's Wednesday. But for those of you out there who have not followed along with Benzinga TV this week, we will not have a show tomorrow or Friday because we have the wonderful Benzinga cannabis conference. Two days hybrid in-person New York and also live here on Benzinga.

    So that means today will be our Friday show. I think Mitch, where we kind of do a little bit more casual, no interviews today. We're going to look at, we're going to take it back. We're going to do some headlines. We're going to talk about that deal. Announced. We're going to look at movers on our watch list.

    We're going to take a peak at next week's calendar. As Mitch said, we're going to offer some trading ideas, some sectors to watch, and then we'll be taking your tickers from the chat like we normally do on a Friday. So again, a casual show here for those of you who are new to the show, um, I think you'll enjoy this one.

    And for those of you who are normally here, you know, how we like to do on. All right, so I'm going to do something. I normally don't go out of the limb do in here, but I'm going to go ahead and say that we have over 170 people watching right now. If we get to a hundred likes today, I'll go ahead and take a trade live right here on the specs tech.

    Of course, it's going to be more of a swing trade. I don't day trade specs. I don't think I've ever day traded a spec, but I can tell you right now, I don't mind taking a swing if you guys hit that, like I just might as well go ahead and do it. Let's go ahead. Let's get into our headlines first. I know that a lot of stocks are moving out there.

    Some people are watching a stock that even, I didn't think would be up, but we'll talk about that. When we get to our watch list, first thing we do is get to our headlines and Chris do what do you do best and inform us, take us back.

    All right guys. Yeah. Uh, let's talk headlines first here. So analysts notes out there. We have Jeffrey's initiating coverage on Sarcos technology. That's S T R C with a buy rating and a price target of $16. Our other big analysts note, this one was out yesterday. Um, I believe after the show aired was when I saw it.

Guys stay tuned. We've got a great show for you. We'll talk about some top specs and of course we'll bring on the brains.

    The show. His name is Chris catchy. Some know him as Chris pedia. Some might know him as the guy from the roadmap, the NFT king over here. What's going on? Hey, match. What's going on? Yeah. Hope you had a great weekend. Back, right. We haven't had a show since Monday it smacks attack is back. It looks like some people in the chat missed us, so we're happy to be back.

Hey, like always is going to be ups and downs in the specs. We're going to be talking about it. And Chris, I think we need to do another one of these man, another nother specs underneath 10.

    Think we might need to do another of those shows. If you guys don't remember, this was one of our most popular shows and look back at that. It's always fun to look back at our old shows, see how we were looking at specs and definitely we'll take a look at that. Four then let's go ahead and get into some headlines.

    Chris, before we get into headlines today, I do want to talk about an event coming up. Now, one thing that we do want to know is that, Hey guys, we always want to talk about these asset classes that are probably untouched and at least unmastered. And I think one of those unmastered areas really is cannabis.

    Why. 'cause there's still just so many questions. Whether it be one of the regulations is going to come down. How did the taxes come into play the banking system? So many questions yet unanswered, and you guys can find out so many of these answers at the one. Okay. Yeah. Love that promo, that cannabis conference is going to be great.

    I know I saw clever leaves among the companies presenting. They of course went public bias back. So if you want more information on cannabis companies, make sure you check out the Benzinga cannabis conference. Let's dive into some headlines, and then we're going to spend some time looking at our watch list in detail, and also looking at some stocks to watch for the by October.

    Yes. Tober fall is here. And then if we have time, of course, we'd love to get to some ticker time. So if you guys have checkers, please hold them right now. But we'll be calling on those in a little bit. Let's start the day with some analyst ratings. We of course had lots of analysts ratings last week, too, t

    How are we doing traders? Welcome to the specs attack. Yes, we're going to be getting into aerospace. We talked about these companies we've talked to Joby, we've taken a look at these companies. So get ready. We're going to talk to another one, one that has impressed me. And I know Chris is going to be super excited to get into the interview.

    Let's go ahead and jump right into the. We're going to get into headlines and hit that interview as fast as we can. Let's go ahead. You guys start us up with a thumbs up.

    what's going, what's going on, traders. How are we doing out there? Let's go ahead and bring in the brains of this show. Chris catchy was going on. Hey, what's up Mitch? Yeah. Happy Friday to everyone out there. Starting to show up a little late, but. We got the headlines. We, we got an interview and we'll also try to hit ticker time at the end of the show.

    So stay tuned to everyone. It's going to be a great episode here. Yeah, you guys, like it says at the bottom up next, we'll be getting into BSN, which is a company that's going to be merging into an aerospace plate. You guys, you know, one thing that we've talked about is how we've. Taking a step into these kinds of plays that have come to the market.

    We're going to bring you another one today. But first thing, we got a couple of headlines. I know Chris wants to get right through that. Let's go ahead and knock those out.

    All right guys. Yeah. Quiet Friday out there. No new deals. I'm not seeing any rumors. Um, but let's get to some headlines. We do have some analysts notes out there. So up first SMF, our SEMA for holding. Jeffrey's initiating coverage with a buy rating and a price target of $13. So a SEMA four S M F R. This is one that's under $10 right now.

    Uh, got a nice little uptick this morning, but about 2% right now. And we have PEO near pay P a Y O city group initiating coverage with a buy rating and a price target of $12 and 50 cents. I'm one of those FinTech plays. This one is starting to creep back up to the $10 level. Uh, we'll see if PEO near can get back up there.

    And then Protera Barclays initiating coverage on pro Terra PTR a with a price target of $10, a Proterra. Remember electric, uh, buses and vehicles, the $10 call here. Um, this is an equal weight rating. Not great. Considering the stock is trading right around 10 times. Um, this continues to be one of my favorites going forward.

    As I think we get some new electric bus deals. And then speaking of electric buses, we also have lion electric, L E V Barclays initiating coverage with an overweight rating and a price target of $17. So there you have your pair trade Barclays, essentially coming out and picking Lyon electric as the one that it favors more.

    Over pro Terra. So interesting. I like both of them. I think the sector's got room for many p

    What's going on traders. Yes. We made it to a. Specs attack. We got some top specs to talk about. We're going to be looking what's on the radar. What's the watch out for yes, the market is going down right now, but we have been seeing the specs, get another lift. We'll see how they continue to move and like always welcome to the specs attack.

    We've got a great interview for you for you today. Of course, we're going to go ahead and get into hotel planner with the CEO, just stay tuned and hit the light button. Let's get started. Specks attack. Get access to actionable news and market research with all the information you need to invest smarter and profit faster.

    Start your free trial today@prodotbenzinga.com. What's going on my family out there. Don't worry. Sue, you enjoy the beach. It's a red day. I understand if you're sitting back relaxing, enjoying the day to day and just going to listen in on the interview. I got no problem with that. Let's go ahead and bring on my friend and you guys.

    Christo pedia, what's going on? What's going on, brother? Yeah. Happy to be here. It's Monday the start of another week. I mean, I wish I was sitting on the beach too, because I mean, it's a red day out there, Mitch. So time to probably sit on them, hands don't look at your portfolio. Or if you had stocks on your watch list today could be a buying opportunity.

    But again, please use caution as we are seeing a lot of red out there for everyone. Yeah. It's just one of those days where, um, this is what I always say. This is one of those days where you really got to know your risk levels. You know, it's okay to cut positions if you're finding yourself below that risk amount, because yes, I know stocks can come back and a lot of times we have seen these big.

    Eventually just get bought back up and you'll see a stock go through your price point. But what I always say is remember to the systematic trade, because at the end of the day, if you stay systematic, you keep yourself in the mathematical advantage. Once you lose, you go outside of your system, let's say, um, you're supposed to cut 5% losers and you wake up today and it's at six or seven and you're like, you know what?

    I'm going to hold. And see if it comes back. Next thing you know, that position is going down that minus 10%. And what you're really doing is you're killing yourself on the next two to three traits. What you do is you put the pressure on, on the next trade because that one trade just cost you mor
