The excitement among investors around non-fungible tokens (NFT) has exploded this year, with enthusiasts spending big sums of money on artwork and other digital items. NFT systems usually rely on the Ethereum Blockchain. The NFTs are attached to brands or even people that are expected to gain in the coming years. Ranging from tech websites to TV networks, NFT’s are gaining popularity in every industry. However, there is little doubt that the latest NFT craze is fueled by speculators and not enthusiasts.
Non-fungible tokens are digital assets that represent a wide range of unique tangible and intangible items, from collectible sports cards to virtual real estate and even digital sneakers. But behind the positive picture of this blockchain game lie quite a few risks. Confusing hype, the whims of rich collectors, and the potential for fraudulent actors could add to investors’ risks in the budding space. The NFT marketplace is one which has both the potential for incredible success and catastrophic losses.
As such, we believe overvalued NFT stocks Hall of Fame Resort & Entertainment Company (HOFV – Get Rating), Cinedigm Corp. (CIDM – Get Rating), and Liquid Media Group Ltd. (YVR – Get Rating), which are caught up in the frenzy, should be avoided now.
Established in 2020, HOFV is a leading sports, entertainment, and media enterprise headquartered in Canton, Ohio. The company is the result of a merger between HOF Village, LLC., a partnership between the Pro Football Hall of Fame and Industrial Realty Group (IRG), which began in 2016, and Gordon Pointe (GPAQ) Acquisition Corp.
In April, HOFV announced its first non-fungible tokens (NFTs) offering in partnership with Dolphin Entertainment, Inc. (“Dolphin Entertainment”) (NASDAQ: DLPN) and Elite Holdings LLC (“Elite Holdings”), the entity, which owns H2H. The companies plan to develop, market, promote and sell NFTs associated with the H2H Legends. The unique content should help them generate e fan engagement opportunities across their business verticals.
HOFV’s forward EV/Sales currently stands at 13.01x, 656.8% higher than the 1.72x industry average. The company’s 14.49x trailing-12-month Price/Sales is 816.3% higher than the industry average 1.58x.
