Investment Experts, Come on In - Marijuana Legal in CA

By BayArea following x   2016 Nov 14, 11:25am 4,069 views   43 comments   watch   quote     share    


Patnet investors,

With CA and other states continuing the trend of legalizing marijuana, I'd like to start a discussion about where investors should be putting their money if this trend continues and the nation remains bullish on marijuana legalization.

Please discuss.

To invest for the most part other than in the black market your left with buying marijuana stocks on
the OTC market (pennies market) which carries more inherent risk then just about any other market.
Here are a couple that I have a stake in that are doing well. There was lots of speculation $ going into
them a few weeks before the election and have held up fairly well since, AGTK being my best performer
hitting 2700% profit on house shares I still own. Now it's sitting at 1500%+ however I'm giving it lots of room
to move because I expect several 1000% more in profit before I close it down.

AGTK, MCIG, TRTC, CBIS, BLOZF, XXII, ICBU

MJNA is a possibility, I'm looking for a little stronger confirmation before I execute a trade.

"In terms of marijuana and legalization, I think that should be a state issue, state-by-state," Trump told The Washington Post. "… Marijuana is such a big thing. I think medical should happen — right? Don’t we agree? I think so. And then I really believe we should leave it up to the states."

Prices have already cratered from ~ $10 a gram , down to $2-3. That's some serious disruption.

Dispensaries down here are still charging $10 for bottom shelf. Prices have been steady in San Diego for the past four years, at least at the shops.

To clarify, I'm not necessarily talking about investment in marijuana. I'm talking infrastructure, equipment, breathalizer technology, etc. Think outside the box.

And those stock tickers, my goodness. That's straight gambling. Thank you for sharing, I will look into them.

It may be a good idea to short stocks associated with the prison industry. They make a large fraction of their money on the basis of locking up marijuana dealers, and will now have fewer prisoners to charge taxpayers for.

They were I think the biggest lobbyist against legalization, and the beer distributors were second.

So perhaps it may also be good to short beer distributors and producers. Or to buy puts for more safety than shorting.

Though it looks like some alcohol producers may be getting into cannabis production: http://finance.yahoo.com/news/reads-weed-kend-beyond-marijuana-200538728.html

Absolutely... It's a market you trade risk capital in it's truest form and definition of a zero-sum game.
The idea is look for trades that have high probability of 100% and ideally 200% gains then sell off for profit and keep some house shares for a bigger run.
You can use http://stockcharts.com/def/servlet/SC.scan?s=runreport,predefalli to find OTC high volume and 52 week new highs to see what the flavor for the
day is. OTC is definitely not for everyone but is the best way a person can leverage and have exposure to this market.

AGTK

With this kind of volatility and small market caps, can I expect that limit orders will always execute? Let's say I'm investing 4 or 5 figures at a time.

What's been your experience with this?

The Arcview Group (https://arcviewgroup.com) estimates that now that Prop 64 passed, legal sales of cannabis products in Cali, currently valued at $2.7 billion, will grow to $6.4 billion by 2020.
I can't think of another industry with that projected growth rate.

I don't know how it's going to be done in CA, but in Maryland, you have to have a license from the state, and there are only a very limited number of those, most likely only available to individuals who made the appropriate bribes (AKA campaign contributions).

Alcohol sales in Colorado actually increased after Cannabis became available legally for recreational use.

https://www.leafly.com/news/politics/how-have-alcohol-sales-been-impacted-since-cannabis-legalization

Since Colorado legalized recreational cannabis 18 months ago, alcohol sales have "seen phenomenal growth," according to Justin Martz, the owner of a wine and spirits store in Denver.

Martz isn't the only person in the alcohol industry who's enjoyed an uptick in sales post-legalization. The New Belgium craft brewing company hasn't seen a negative impact in sales, either, with its spokesperson arguing that alcohol and cannabis can actually boost each other's overall sales

http://denver.cbslocal.com/2015/09/15/legal-weed-in-colorado-doesnt-curb-alcohol-sales/

Alcohol excise tax collections were up 2.4 percent, to about $42 million. Marijuana-specific taxes came in at about $70 million.

Haven't found any articles on Washington State yet.

Amazing everyone can charge that much. The stuff is literally a weed, though I guess the intensive cultivation has certain costs in power and fertilizer.

Legal marijuana has two positive side effects:

1. environmental: an estimated 11% of all electricity in California is spent on indoor pot farming using electrical growing lights. Now the growing can use sunshine instead. Winning! Growing marijuana with lamps really is obscene. Also probably some benefits from avoiding unnecessary fertilizer use and pesticide use.

2. fiscal and social: as people have pointed out, the benefit of not unnecessarily criminalizing and jailing large swaths of various minority populations will have social benefits, as well as fiscal savings. Only problem is, what underground jobs might replace the MJ?

Most of the costs come once the plant is cropped. Yea, you can cure it on the cheap like a shlep. But if you want the kind of raw chronic that my friend had delivered to my hotel room in Las Vegas, that My friend happily paid $25 a gram for, you need some expensive, labor intensive processes to get you there.

The cost is driven by prohibition. Plants all take about the same amount of effort and cost, although trimming is quite time intensive. I expect costs to be way lower for the ditchweed they'll sell at Walmart, produced by big tobacco. But I expect craft weed, like craft beer to continue to have a place in the industry, and carry a premium.

The only correlation I can think of is the heightened sensory perception that comes with smoking cannabis.

You must buy these at absolute lows for these gains, most people don't have the time to scan and most companies like AGTK will end up at zero making lower lows and lower highs. AGTK may be doing better and be more serious with decent insider ownership, but the OTC market will rip-off most investors as death spiral financing and extreme dilution is the norm.
