The cannabis market has been growing with a tremendous amount of ferocity over the course of the past few years, but new developments in the industry have led to even more availability and exposure for investors. The newness of the market, however, has made some of the normal trading rules not fully applicable to the market, but the infancy has also been able to produce some new rules for trading as well.
One of the smartest moves to make in the cannabis market is to be tactical for investments. The infancy of the industry has also meant that investing in cannabis stocks should be considered to be a long term goal. Many stocks have seen a large amount of volatility because of the new nature of the market, but in the long term it only makes sense that they would continue to grow.
Another rule that many investors have taken into consideration is the fact that cannabis should be considered to be just another market to invest in and not the only one. This of course coincides with the idea of diversity in a portfolio and should remain one of the main factors to ensure one has in the industry. The diversity is simply in place to ensure that there is a solid mix of high and low volatility stocks to make sure growth can continue to happen.
The long term strategy as mentioned above should also make sure to consider the idea of speculation. Since the market on cannabis is undoubtedly still very new, many stocks suffer from a high amount of fluctuation based on news and other pieces of information that comes out. This is a signal of a new market and is nothing to be afraid of, but once the market is able to stabilize even further, it will likely make this investing more obsolete than before.
One of the pieces of news that has largely affected the cannabis market in recent times is the legalization of Canadian recreational cannabis. As soon as this news passed through the various media outlets, stocks went into a frenzy. This frenzy, however, did die down after some time with prices returning to their prior value, but as we near the date of recreational cannabis actually being able to be sold. The news however of this recreational availability should potentially allow stocks to reach more of what their true value is as we move toward the future but only time will tell.
The cannabis market has also benefitted from a large influx of capital given the new business in the market, and this capital has helped companies to continue fueling their large growth rates as the industry continues to proliferate. As stated before however, the cannabis market is still very new which means that there are a lot of details to work out before the industry can function smoothly for the future.
The key to investing in the cannabis market is simply to do ones research on the companies that they are investing in. This might sound incredibly simple, but many investors overlook this easy and doable process. If one does the right homework on what they’re investing in, they can be sure that the financials and the information is all in check before putting a dollar in to the industry. As the market is able to smooth out all of the legislative issues, it will remain incredibly interesting to see where the industry can go in the near to not too distant future. Only time will tell how well these issues continue to play out.
