Jupiter Wellness, Inc. (NASDAQ: JUPW) is a diversified company that supports health and wellness by researching and developing over-the-counter (OTC) products and intellectual property. The JUPW product pipeline addresses a range of conditions, including hair loss, eczema, burns, and sexual wellness. Revenue is generated through the sales of OTC and consumer products, contract research agreements, and licensing royalties.
Buyins.net, a service which tracks investor shorting in public companies, reports that JUPW has been experiencing substantial short selling activity over the past several weeks. Data from mid-September through early-November indicate that over 216 million shares were sold short during this time period, placing unusually strong downward pressure on the JUPW pps. These short sold shares must be covered at some point and Buyins.net is projecting a potential short squeeze for JUPW could occur in the near future.
StockWireNews has also been tracking JUPW in recent weeks and is currently alerting its followers to the potential for JUPW to jump in share price as a result of multiple positive catalysts from the company as well as the current over-sold and potentially over-shorted condition of JUPW shares in the markets.
On November 14th JUPW announced its financial results for the Third Quarter ended September 30, 2022. JUPW generated $1,569,925 in revenues for the three months that ended September 30, 2022, compared to $687,928 for the same period in 2021. In addition to the revenues booked in the Third Quarter, JUPW wholly-owned subsidiary, SRM Entertainment, received $3.6 million in guaranteed purchase orders from the world’s largest amusement parks. These revenues will be realized once the orders are shipped from our facilities.
Brian John, CEO of JUPW, said, “I am very pleased with our progress in reducing our operating expenses while increasing our revenues. We anticipate continued revenue growth and reduced expenses as the demand for our products and services grows steadily. With combined sales orders shipped or received in the Third Quarter of over $5 million just coming off a record revenue in the Second Quarter, we are well on our way toward profitability by mid-2023.” John continued, “We plan to file to spin off our SRM division to our shareholders as its own separate NASDAQ traded company by year-end. Jupiter Wellness will remain the largest shareholder while enabling us to access additional capital to grow the SRM business at a faster pace.”

JUPW Re-Opens Enrollment in Clinical Trial Comparison of JW-100 and EUCRISA for the Treatment of Eczema
Expected to Complete Patient Enrollment of Clinical Trial in December 2022
On November 10th JUPW announced that it has re-opened enrollment in a clinical trial aimed at evaluating the superiority of JW-100, a novel cannabidiol topical cream, in a head-to-head study against EUCRISA, an FDA Approved topical treatment for eczema developed by Pfizer.
The study was put on hold to solve stability issues in the original JW-100 formulation. These issues were addressed and resolved to the satisfaction of the study’s clinical investigators.
JUPW CEO Brian John, said “Due to the nature of a double-blind study, we are only able to access certain data from the first run of this trial. However, what we have seen suggests to our team of scientists that we are on the right track and that this study warrants continuation. We are very encouraged by this update and hope to prove that our JW-100 is as effective, if not superior to a leading drug already on the market that does hundreds of millions in revenue. We hope to have the second half of this trail completed in the first quarter of 2023.”
