Marijuana-Stocks-weed money wad (1)

Towards the end of June, the S&P 500 had been up almost 20% over the course of 12 months. With a historical rise on average of around 7% annually, the new average is something investors are excited about. If this looks like solid gains than you’re right, but take a look at the gains for the marijuana industry and you’ll be ecstatic. In some instances this industry has doubled or even tripled its value over the past 12 months.

Why are these stocks doing so well? One of the main reasons behind it is the rapidly changing public opinion on the plant. With more research than ever being conducted, the public is learning the truth behind marijuana’s health benefits. A 2016 poll from Gallup showed that favorability toward the legalization of marijuana hit an all time high of over 60%. As opinions get better, so do sales. Investors project the sales from U.S. legal marijuana will top $6.9 billion in 2016 and are expected to more than triple by 2021. All of this leads to a bright future for cannabis related investments.

Marijuana stocks are more profitable than ever as sales continue to grow. This does not mean one should forgo their usual research, if anything one should be extra careful because it is a new industry. That said, this is the time to diversify a portfolio to get some green with some green. Here’s four stock picks that should see profit this year.

1. Aphria
This is one of many Canadian medical marijuana producers and retailers as the Canadian marijuana industry has been around for much longer than its U.S. counterpart (legally that is).

Aphria (NASDAQOTH: APHQF) has been profitable for investors for an astounding five consecutive quarters. A new project is seeing the company enlarging its growing capacity to a 1 million square feet to help produce an estimated 75,000 kilograms of cannabis per year.

2. Canopy Growth Corp.
Yet another Canadian marijuana stock; this company currently has the highest market cap. Canopy Growth Corp. (NASDAQOTH: TWMJF) is on track to be profitable for this year. This company has benefitted from exporting some of its production overseas in places where cannabis is legal medically.

Canopy Growth also acquired Mettrum Health (which boosted its customer reach within Canada). In addition, they recently purchased 472,000 sq. ft. for its headquarters to expand grow capacity.

3. MedReleaf
This is another profitable stock called MedRelead (NASDAQOTH: MEDFF) (TSX:LEAF), which was the largest North American IPO to date. MedReleaf, like Aphria and Canopy Growth is a producer of medical cannabis for Canadian patients. The company recently raised over $74 million dollars from its IPO to fund its expansion in a facility located in Bradford, Ontario. Once the new facility is completed, MedReleaf says it will be capable of 35,000 kilograms of annual cannabis production.

4.Scotts Miracle-Gro
This emerging marijuana stock Scotts Miracle-Gro (NYSE: SMG) is expected to generate high profits for the 2017 fiscal year. The majority of Scotts’ business comes from various traditional lawn and garden care products. The other portion of business comes from hydroponics. As the traditional part of Scotts’ sees various ups and downs according to weather etc., their hydroponics section is growing very quickly up 17% from last year.

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!
