A few months back….Like eight months ago…we highlighted a very real and very important part of the Marijuana Industry that no one was paying attention to. But taking a 30,000-foot view, it made total sense to us. As investors were scrambling to grab cheap, emerging marijuana stocks that were just putting a business plan together, who was already established in the “growing industry”? Think back to grandma’s garden. What did she use to get those beautiful flowers and raspberries off the bushes? Miracle Grow!
Marijuana cultivation is very real and very relatable as far as opportunity goes. Sure lights and grow boxes are great but without the actual plant, we’ve got nothing. So growing is obviously the first stage you need in order to even have an industry like marijuana. Case and point, and why I bring this up: I caught an article from CNBC (http://www.cnbc.com/2016/08/04/scotts-miracle-gro-is-a-marijuana-play-says-jpmorgan.html) this afternoon that apparently was “breaking news” about Scott’s Miracle Grow (SMG) becoming a huge opportunity for the marijuana space according to JPMorgan (rolls eyes).
Well I hate to break it to everyone but we called this one back in December of 2015. December 15th to be exact. This was long before anyone had been reporting on blue chip companies even getting involved. And definitely long before Microsoft started “making a play at marijuana.”
The proof? You can reference the link below. Bottom line is, CNBC, I hate to say it, but we broke it right here first on MarijuanaStocks.com and since then, SMG shares have increased about $15 per share. Was it all from the marijuana industry? Who knows, but we’d like to think it has something to do with it, and we’d like to think that our subscribers can read between the lines and connect the dots we lay out. People need to become more educated on this space and think outside the box…which is exactly what we’ve aimed to do from day one.
SMG isn’t the first company we’ve beat the pundits on the street to or CNBC to, just take a look at my coverage on social for any of the companies in the Biotech space like GWPH, CARA, ZYNE, INSY, and ABBV, you will see that we were weeks ahead of some of the Gurus out there. We get it, we understand that this isn’t your space and you probably think it’s all Penny Stocks. Problem is we are the boots on the ground, MarijuanaStocks.com wants to find the “Gold” first and by the time you “break the news” you’re just buying our subscribers shares… So Thank you!
