Are These Marijuana Stocks Right For Your Portfolio?
Are you looking at marijuana stocks to buy, but can’t find which company is right for you? Although 2020 has seen many top marijuana stocks make gains, volatility remains the same with most pot stocks. While most pure-play marijuana stocks remain the most volatile in the cannabis industry, there are other options for investors. For example, Innovative Industrial Properties, Inc. (IIPR Stock Report) is a REIT that strictly does business with licensed cannabis companies in the U.S. In 2020 IIPR stock has been performing well for investors steady climbing up since April and also rewarding shareholders with a dividend. Since the company does not directly rely on the cannabis plant for profitability, it has a more stable stock price when compared to other leading pot stocks.
