Cabot Marijuana Investor 1219

December 26, 2019

The latest issue of Cabot Marijuana Investor is now available, with my current advice on the fourteen stocks in the portfolio.

The cannabis sector remains in a correction, but the new year brings the promise of a great rebound, and I want you to be in the stocks that will benefit most, so, while there hasn’t been much news over the past week, I do include full updates on each stock in the portfolio so you can best decide which stocks fit your own portfolio.

Also, the portfolio remains 25% in cash, waiting for the sector’s main trend to turn up.

Full details in the issue.

The cannabis sector remains in a correction, with Canadian stocks in particular still struggling—even as Cannabis 2.0 promises new retail opportunities. But the fundamentals of the industry remain bright, and investors are now beginning to discriminate between the winners and the losers—with the best stocks showing substantial increases in buying volume recently.

The portfolio remains more than a third in cash, waiting for the sector’s main trend to turn up, and there are just two small adjustments today. The portfolio will sell half its position in Cresco Labs (CRLBF) and double its position in Innovative Industrial Properties (IIPR).

One year ago, soon after marijuana sales became legal in Canada, investors were throwing money at the sector, anxious to get a piece of the action. Today, the opposite is true—getting money for a cannabis business takes real work!

The cannabis sector remains in a correction, weighed down in part by fears of vaping illness, but many stocks are doing considerably better than the sector and our challenge is to own the right ones—so that we can succeed both short-term and long-term.

The cannabis sector remains in a correction, but many of our stocks are doing considerably better than the sector. And the sector itself is very likely near a bottom—which I why today’s issue is titled “Buying Opportunity.”
For new investors, it’s a great time to get started.
However, I’m also recommending reducing positions in four of our holdings, always working to put more of our money in the leading stocks—and with these sales, our cash level will rise—hopefully briefly—to 30%.

The cannabis sector remains in a correction, with both marijuana and CBD stocks trending lower, giving up some of their early-year gains—and perhaps building a bottom here.

In the meantime, more and more peripheral companies are getting in on the action, and we have been increasing our exposure to these in recent weeks while still holding substantial cash.

This week we’re selling one more of the pure-play marijuana companies, raising the portfolio’s cash level to about 27%.

The latest issue of Cabot Marijuana Investor is now available, with my current advice on the fourteen stocks in the portfolio.

The cannabis sector is currently in a correction, with both marijuana and CBD stocks trending lower, giving up some of their early-year gains—and perhaps building a bottom here.

In fact some of the biggest stocks, those supported best by institutional investors, are already looking stronger, though it will take time to know if they are in real uptrends. In the meantime, I continue to build cash, which will come in handy when it’s time to buy again.

Last week we sold a portion of three stocks and this week we’re selling portions of two more, raising the portfolio’s cash level to about 33%.

The main trend remains up, in both the broad market and the cannabis sector in particular, but in the intermediate-term, we are now in a correction, and thus a little more caution is advised.

In fact, in today’s issue, I’m raising cash by selling portions of the portfolio’s two biggest investments, and then buying some more of one of the portfolio’s “safest” investments, if anything in this industry can be called safe.

The main trend remains up, in both the broad market and the cannabis sector in particular. When these uptrends will end, no one knows, but I guarantee that they will someday.

Long-term, however, I remain very bullish on both the companies and the stocks in the industry and continue to adjust the portfolio’s holdings to optimize growth (with reasonable security.)

CBD is hot, and acquisitions in the cannabis industry seem to occur daily, but the biggest marijuana stocks are cooling, at least for a while.

Long-term, however, I remain very bullish on both the companies and the stocks in the industry and am truly enjoying staying on top of the developments.

The gains so far this year, in both the sector and the portfolio, remain spectacular, but they won’t continue; I guarantee that corrections and volatility will come. And I also guarantee I’ll give you my best ideas on how to deal with them.

The latest issue of Cabot Marijuana Investor is now available, with my current advice on the sixteen stocks in the portfolio.

The gains so far this year, in both the sector and the portfolio, have been absolutely spectacular, but they won’t continue. Already I detect signs of a rolling correction and there’s the possibility that short-term, it could get worse. So in this issue, I have some sell recommendations, for investors who are working to develop maximum gains.

For longer-term, more patient investors, however, doing nothing is fine. The long-term prospects for both the industry and the sector remain bright.

The past month has been very profitable for investors in the sector, as stocks rallied off their December lows and climbed strongly through January, with several hitting new highs as I write. In general, I recommend that you enjoy the trend; the long-term prospects remain bright.

But short-term, there are opportunities for fine-tuning and risk reduction, and thus I have a few recommended changes in today’s issue, as well as one new addition, a company thriving in the booming CBD market.

Like the broad market, many of the stocks in the portfolio have had a rough time over the past month, as investors have been spooked by fears of inflation and trade wars. But as the end of the year approaches, so does the incentive to take losses for tax purposes, and my optimistic reading is that most of the marijuana stocks have bottomed—though it may take a while for uptrends to be reestablished

In today’s issue, there are no new buy and sell recommendations, but you’ll find updates on all the stocks. And as we head toward the last of 2018, I’m very optimistic that the sector will have another great run in 2019—just when most investors least expect it!

Hopefully, you took some profits last week as I advised. It’s been a rough week since then, but it wasn’t unexpected. The well-publicized legalization day in Canada was exactly the type of event that often accompanies market tops.

Of course, it’s not just the marijuana stocks that have been sinking; the broad stock market is trending down as well.

But have no fear! The key to successful investing in this sector is to hold cash when the environment is against you, and to invest in great growth companies when trends are positive, and to take partial profits—as we did last week—when stocks get frothy.
