Big Money Is About to Get Access to Marijuana

Apr 02, 2019

Imagine running a legal business – one approved by the state – and generating millions of dollars in revenue but not being able to deposit it in a bank account. Crazy, huh? Think about paying the bills. Instead of writing a check or sending money electronically, you need to deliver cold, hard cash. This scenario is still a harsh reality for the marijuana industry. Due to regulations, few banks will take on the risk of doing business with a marijuana company in the United States. This is one of the major problems for the industry leaders I speak with. Of the nearly 5,000 FDIC-insured commercial banks in the U.S., only about 400 – or 8% – offer services to the marijuana industry. Continue Reading…

Best Stocks for 2019: CWBHF Is Well-Positioned to Capture Growing Demand in CBD

Mar 31, 2019

Investing in the leader of one of the fastest-growing industries in the world makes for a great opportunity. Investing early is even better. According to Brightfield Group, the hemp-derived CBD market is poised to increase from $591 million in 2018 to $22 billion by 2022. That is nearly 40X growth in four years. I am not aware of any other industry that has that kind of potential. Buying the early leader in a booming, up-and-coming industry is a no-brainer. And that’s exactly what we’re doing with my pick in the Best Stocks for 2019 contest. Continue Reading…

This Genius Must be Reading My Investment Ideas…

Mar 29, 2019

Making predictions is one of the most fun parts of my job. It’s also one of the most important. I’m not talking about those internet quizzes that predict the first letter of the person you’re going to marry. And I’m certainly not talking about a stranger on the phone who claims to have all the answers to life’s questions. I’m talking about analysis-driven predictions based on the past and the present that help us see where the world is headed. This is critical for investing success. Hockey great Wayne Gretsky said, “Skate to where the puck is going, not where it has been.” To get to the puck before everyone else, I take into account everything I have studied and learned over the years and apply it the future.

CBD Goes Mainstream with Jump to CVS and Walgreens

Mar 28, 2019

When I tell people that marijuana stocks may be one of the best investment opportunities of their lifetimes, I think their minds usually go to the more dramatic story of “legal weed” — like the “cannabis cafés” popping up everywhere from West Hollywood to Alaska. However, I’ve long thought that its non-psychoactive cousin, cannabidiol (CBD), could be the real growth opportunity. But don’t take my word for it. CVS Health (CVS) and Walgreens (WBA) apparently see the same thing. In the last week, both CVS and Walgreens have announced that they will start selling CBD in several different states. Continue Reading…

Yield Curve Craziness: All You Need to Know to Keep Making Money

Mar 26, 2019

Head for the hills! Go to cash! A recession is coming! That’s been the cry in the financial media the last few days as we faced the dreaded inverted yield curve. Should you be scared? Should you change your investing strategy? No and no. The yield curve – especially an inverted yield curve – is a legitimate economic indicator. We shouldn’t dismiss it. At the same time, it’s not as simple as the headlines make it out to be. Nothing ever is. It’s critical that you know the proper context. That’s what I want to help you with today, so you understand the scary headlines and can take full advantage of the opportunities created by those who don’t. Continue Reading…

More Profitable than the Uber and Lyft IPOs

Mar 22, 2019

It is the moment a lot of investors have been waiting for. It is finally time for the Silicon Valley unicorns and ride-sharing giants to make their market debuts. Uber – the biggest name in the industry today – plans to make its initial public offering (IPO) in April. But Lyft, the smaller, more centrally-focused of the two, launched its pre-IPO “road show” this week. The stock is scheduled to start trading on the NASDAQ next Friday, March 29, under the symbol “LYFT.” Assuming all goes according to plan, Lyft will become the first-ever U.S. ride-hailing company to go public. These companies point us to one major trend – the growth of autonomous vehicles and the emergence of robo-taxis. Continue Reading…

Two Similar Opportunities that Can Make You a Fortune

Mar 21, 2019

I’m a huge sports fan. Always have been. I’m an even bigger fan of making money. Much bigger actually, and that’s saying something. We’re smack in the middle of a great time for both. In terms of sports, the NBA and NHL playoffs start in just a few weeks. Major League Baseball’s spring training is in “full swing” (sorry, couldn’t resist). In fact, I’m writing to you from Florida, where I’m catching a few Philadelphia Phillies’ practices and games. And to top it all off… the 2019 NCAA basketball tournament just got under way. You’ve likely heard it called “March Madness,” and that brings us to investing. More than 40 million people were expected to fill out those famous brackets. Continue Reading…

Why Marijuana REITs Are One of the Best Cannabis Investments Today

Mar 19, 2019

What a difference five years makes. If you were with me back then, I urged you to keep your eye on marijuana stocks. If you watched Fox Business, you saw me get ridiculed for saying so. And now, as legalization has spread to 11 states – and counting – the cannabis industry is on the brink of explosive growth. But there are two key hurdles to overcome… and marijuana REITs like Innovative Industrial Properties (IIPR) are solving them both. For growers, it’s not easy to produce high-grade marijuana. Nor is it cheap. For investors, the options have been limited, as that Schedule 1 label prohibits most U.S. companies from listing on the NYSE or NASDAQ. Continue Reading…

Can an Old Dog That Learns New Tricks Make You Money?

Mar 14, 2019

Full disclosure right up front: I’m not a pet guy. It’s just not my thing, and I’m too busy with my work. I’m on the road today heading to a cannabis conference in Indianapolis. I’ll be in Florida next week. I’m going to China later in the year. Travel is important to my stock research, so I wouldn’t have time to have a pet even if I wanted one. It’s not that I don’t like animals, and I don’t want to offend anyone who does. Based on the trends, that’s clearly a lot of people. At times, I’ve felt like I’m the only one who doesn’t have a pet. I bring this up because I want to ask all you dog owners out there… Is it true that “you can’t teach an old dog new tricks,” as the old saying goes? Continue Reading…

As U.S. Market Heats Up, Pot Stocks Cash In

Mar 13, 2019

I’m packing my bags and getting ready to head to my second cannabis conference of the year. If it’s anything like the first one, the buzz will be about the next big domino expected to fall in the wave of legalization. A big part of my job is hitting the road and staying in contact with industry insiders and executives to help my readers get to the biggest investment opportunities first. There’s no substitute for face-to-face conversations. That’s what I did a little over a month ago in Miami, and now I’m heading to Indianapolis. I’ve been following the huge opportunities in marijuana companies for nearly a decade, but when I left the last conference, my enthusiasm for the long-term wealth-building potential was at a new level. Continue Reading…
