2 Marijuana Stocks To Watch As New Of Trading Begins
Right now marijuana stock investors are watching the sector show increased volatility. It’s not that this is a new factor yet is leading to more up and down behavior in the sector. For those who are looking for marijuana stocks to buy volatility is something that can help. As well volatile trading can also lead to seeing some upside as well. All the way around the sector both US and Canadian marijuana stocks had better trading in August. Now, this recent momentum could be due to several reasons the most current being positive earnings throughout the sector.
When one or more cannabis companies can report good earnings oftentimes it can resonate well with other marijuana stocks also. Yet the bigger news many are left waiting for is what will be the end result of federal cannabis reform. At the moment there are several bills that take aim to solve this issue. If any of these federal bills become law it can potentially spark a big run for marijuana stocks. This is the collective opinion of many who are invested. Also, this is based on how historically when positive news on federal reform is released marijuana stocks react well.
Still, there is much to be done and seen as shareholders remain patient. Some of course are using more of a sniper trading strategy where you buy the dips and take profits at the site of any recovery. For others they are buying and holding for a recovery they feel is coming in the near future. The marijuana stocks to watch below could soon pick up more momentum in September.
