Julian Lin, who originally appeared on our MasterClass episodes, has a new cannabis focused marketplace service, Cannabis Growth Portfolio. Cannabis is his highest conviction idea and largest position in terms of sector weight. We're seeing growing investor impatience as companies are reporting high growth numbers, especially in recent earnings reports - if they were in a major exchange and a normal growth stock, they would go up 30% in a day, but given the sector and lack of serious coverage, some of these stocks are actually going down. Legalization is not the thesis to be owning cannabis stocks. SAFE Banking, though it looks far off and is getting hard to keep up with, may lead to improved interest expense. Thoughts on EBITDA. California concerns and whether The Parent Company (OTCQX:GRAMF) and Glass House (OTC:GLASF) belong in a portfolio.
