Apple’s stock price doesn’t recover, pot stocks experience a bitcoin-like implosion, and the price of oil remains under $75 all year. These are some of the “bold and perhaps unpopular” market predictions the author of today’s article is making for the year ahead – and while he acknowledges that some of these predictions may be sources of disagreement, he notes that they each highlight important issues for investors and hopefully cause the reader to “at least think about the other side of the trade and prepare your portfolio accordingly for the year ahead.” For more, CLICK HERE.
When investing in marijuana stocks, what really matters? The author of today’s article advises that “what a lot of folks overlook is that there’s more to investing in pot stocks and analyzing the marijuana industry than just aggregate cannabis production. If peak production were all that mattered, Aurora Cannabis…would clearly be the largest marijuana stock by market cap, trailed by Canopy Growth…and Aphria. Of course, that’s not how things have shaped up…” He proceeds to outline five things that may be more important when investing in marijuana stocks. What are they? CLICK HERE.

When it comes to marijuana stocks, there are a number of widely known risks – including political, financial and other risks. However, in addition to these readily apparent risks, the author of today’s article cautions that “there’s one potentially silent killer which could wreck marijuana stocks that investors seem completely unaware of”.

Many pure play marijuana companies have seen their stocks soar as the legalization of medical – and recreational – marijuana has expanded. These companies can be risky bets however (consider the fact that most are still not profitable). The better bet, according to today’s article, may be companies that service the marijuana industry – and while many of these companies are private, there are some publicly-traded options. For some of these “impure” marijuana plays – including a REIT “focused solely on acquisition and management of industrial properties leased to companies that require medical-use cannabis facilities” – CLICK HERE.

And I don’t mean explode in a good way”? CLICK HERE.
