  • Craft Brew Alliance Is Undervalued By 30% [View article]
    Dane, Disagree on both the calorie count and association w big beer. If the person really cared about calories they wouldn't drink beer, period. Few people are going to drink Bud light for the "taste." If they're just drinking to get drunk they'd likely use liquor, cheaper, quicker, less calories...or soon enough they'll just snort Pacohal. Craft drinkers drink it bc they like the taste or they want to be cool.

    And as far as the association w big beer, how has that hurt sales of blue moon? Last quarter I think blue moon and leinenkugel or whatever were the only 2 american brands within their network w sales increases...

  • 48 Marijuana Stocks - A Post-Mortem: Part I [View article]
    Professor Cataldo,

    Seriously not trying to be a dick but what is the point of your articles, if you don't own any of the shares, only get paid $100 for the article, and offer little to zero insight on the stocks mentioned? You're only doing a disservice to the world by enticing unsophisticated retail investors into stocks they - and possibly you - don't understand.


    For example, what does this tell anyone????:

    "6-GW Pharmaceuticals, PLC [1/9/2015].

    GW Pharmaceuticals [GWPH] closed at $80.92 per share on February 27, 2015, up from $78.53 per share [~3%] on January 9, 2015."

  • A Preliminary Examination Of N=35 Canadian Marijuana Stocks... Eh? [View article]
    It is perfectly legal as long as you don't flood the newswire w misinformation. Just go to interactive brokers. You can short pretty much anything there, but they want $2.50 in margin for each share of any of these dog companies. For example to short 100 shares of grow life at its peak of around $0.70, you would need to give interactive $250 in margin, for shares that trade at $70.

    blasted,

    1. Moonshine is still available and cheaper than regulated booze...how many people do you know that go buy their whiskey out Merle's pick up truck?
    2.The barriers to entry are being installed by governments, as obviously seen in Canada and medical states in US.
    3.Good weed does not grow like the weeds in your garden...as evidenced by the struggles of canadian growers. The bud is actually a flower anyway.
    4.Weed is different than booze in that booze was only illegal for a relatively short time. Weed developed a stigma, and it is overcoming it....so use should rise in the short term then stabilize at a lower level, long-term.
    5.Nobody wants to grow their own weed, just like nobody wants to brew their own beer or ferment their own grapes (yeah sure a few people do, but they will generally be bad at it and give up quickly...or being a stoner in this case just never do it bc they're lazy).

    BUT you are right about one thing, retail price will go down as more producers enter the market.

    Prof, How do you suggest shorting these stocks? Last I checked interactive brokers was the only place retail investors could short pennies, and they want $2.50 in margin per share, making it fairly impractical.

    Lol, excellent in regards to what? Compiling a mass of information and incredibly shallow analysis that could have been done by one of his students.

    "I would view the above as favorable, with respect to the most recent closing price per share at $0.26 Canadian. The warrants are out-of-the-money and this stock might be worth placing on your watch list, particularly if the stock price continues to decline."

    If you liked Supreme at $0.26 then you'll love it at $0.00..aint that right professor? That is an absolutely horrible way to invest in most stocks, but especially pennies. Yeah if Warren Buffett has warrants in Goldman at $115, and GS trades at $100, then yeah that says something to me (and it did a few years ago). But none of these stocks are Goldman and nobody worth following owns those warrants.

    God I can imagine his students being inundated with exceedingly long useless lectures/power point slides.

  • Growing Marijuana Is Still Illegal For Growlife Inc. And Other Pot Stocks [View article]
    bob,

    again you're blaming the sec for your choice of a obviously shady/useless company (no offense meant we all make bad investing decisions from time to time). its not like the suits at the sec were sitting around jerking each other off and said "oh I don't like bob and not too mention sterling scott and phot, they really suck. lets really stick it to those retail investors and this guy's AWESOME company by halting their shares. We are such haters."

    your example of madoff even better promotes the idea that for the sec to get off their a$$es and do something it must be some blatantly obvious shady $hit going on. and Just because they haven't charged them yet doesn't mean the SEC won't.

    You can't blame the government for investing in a dog of a stock. I haven't heard of a stock in this sector that encountered the wrath of the SEC and was a good one. I think the SEC just got them closer to $0.000 in a much shorter timespan...I haven't really kept track of who's gotten halted by the SEC, but I am surprised their are some that haven't yet (mainly FITX and MJNA come to mind).

    I do agree that management should be more highly scrutinized, but they likely wouldn't recover any meaningful amount of money to compensate investors.

    chiefking, doesn't really mean anything. dea will just say that they were linked to cartels or doing something illegal if they want to raid. They don;t have to prove it til later and by then the damage is mostly done.

    HGI,

    Probably right, it's not worth the risk for them...unless their casino isn't faring too well. They also might run into a problem with their buffets if a weed store is located at the casino.

    Wonder if the recent statement about growing/selling on native reservations in the US will set off another wave of the pump and dumps. I can picture grow life or someone "partnering" with some casino operating tribe. Wait for the press releases.

    Don't you have to build the grow before HC gives you a license? Or do you mean building permits?

    trabob, Not sure who you're talking to but that wasn't delight in people losing money. The LOL was for people that think Lakeshore matters. I guess I was laughing at their ignorance, I have no way to tell if the people I'm laughing at have lost money or are going to lose money...hell some of them may have made a ton of money on both of these dogs, fitx is still up 300% since the Forbes press release last year and phot is up from somewhere...lol.
