O, Canada! Huge Day For Cannabis Investors

O, Canada! What a historic moment for the cannabis industry!

Canada just became the first developed country in the world to legalize recreational cannabis.

Now that legalization has set billions of dollars in motion, Cannabis Stock Trades members are in a prime position.

We've been prepping our portfolios to capitalize on this giant day and it's finally here.

Cannabis stocks have a clear history of jumping higher before and after these key legalization dates.

Let's take a look at three recent examples.

1. Cannabis stocks soared when Colorado went legal on Jan 1, 2014.

On January 1, 2014, Colorado became the first US state to legalize recreational cannabis.

It was a breakout moment for the US cannabis industry – and it sent US cannabis stocks soaring. Continue reading "O, Canada! Huge Day For Cannabis Investors"

Marijuana ETFs Aren't Too 'High' Just Yet

With Canada set to legalize the recreational use of marijuana on October 17th, marijuana-related stocks and thus marijuana ETFs built around these equities have been on the rise. Many investors believe the marijuana industry will the next big growth industry since the drug has never been legal, but known to be rather popular with those looking to relax. Not only have individual investors been looking to the industry as a way to grow their wealth, but the alcohol industry has recently shown serious interest in the industry.

In August we saw Constellation Brands (STZ) increase its stake in Canopy Growth (CGC), we saw Molson Coors (TAP) partner up with Hydropothecary Corp. (HEXO) and there were reports that Tilray (TLRY) was in talks with Diageo (DEO). The rumors that Diageo and recently IPO’d Tilray where in talks has helped TLRY jump more than 100% since going public in mid-July of this year. While the moves from TLRY, HEXO, and CGC have all been astonishing in the past few months, the fact remains that the industry as a whole can still go higher in the future.

When marijuana became legal in Colorado and then California, the industry experienced a significant increase in demand literally overnight. That demand is once again going to jump on October 17th when Canada becomes legal. Furthermore, with the trend appearing to be taking hold not only around the country but the world, it's not hard to see how within maybe the next five to ten years from now, some of the marijuana stocks will be as big as the top alcohol companies.

But, that is where the problem rests. Trying to determine today, which companies are going to dominate the marijuana market in the coming years is not only a daunting task but perhaps more like gambling than investing.

Luckily though, we have a few ETFs that you can pick from today. Continue reading "Marijuana ETFs Aren't Too 'High' Just Yet"

Analysis originally distributed on April 28, 2018 By: Michael Vodicka of Cannabis Stock Trades

Investing in cannabis stocks is exciting and can be very lucrative. However, given their volatility, it is important to keep these 7 tips in mind to confidently and successfully leverage this explosive sector.

1 – Create Realistic Expectations:

The legal cannabis industry is one of the most exciting investments I’ve ever been around in 17 years of trading and investing. Many cannabis stocks have delivered big returns in a short amount of time. These outsized returns have expectations running sky high for the cannabis stocks. Although I’m expecting great things from cannabis stocks, don’t get too excited about gains and don’t get too bummed about losses.

2 – Focus on the Long Run:

When analyzing an investment, sometimes I use a microscope and other times I use a telescope. For cannabis stocks, I am using my telescope. That means I am looking at this investment from 10,000 feet above. I am expecting plenty of volatility in the short run. But in the long run, I am expecting the industry and stocks to steadily move higher for many years. It’s another way of saying don’t sweat short-term volatility.
