Cannabis Stocks: Down 10% – 25% Across the Board Friday as White House Targets Recreational Use

At Equities Research we think this is healthy, this is a very long game and pullbacks are good for the markets - who got a bit ahead of themselves - as part of the Global Trump Trade since the Election.

If you don’t know, Cannabis is like any other industry where it is broken into sub-sectors and there is inherent volatility. It is likely much of the volatility will come as the Trump Administration clarifies its position on Cannabis Stocks in general. But clearly the important metrics revolve around Federal Legalization, Supreme Court appointments and the voice of the people who know keeping cannabis illegal is a large waste of money.

Friday, Sean Spicer made some comments during a press conference which sent stocks related to recreational cannabis production and sales lower. But it seems from the down side action that nearly every stock found a seller into the close on Friday. More news continued over the weekend and the selling pressure should continue across the board. At Equities Research, we think this is healthy, this is a very long game and pullbacks are good for individual stocks and the market as a whole – which got a bit ahead of themselves – as part of the Global Trump trade since the Election.
