Trimming The Fat On The Green Rush

|Includes: Valeant Pharmaceuticals International, Inc. (VRX)

So my little foray into the medical marijuana field cost me $3,000 in 3 months. My portfolio went from $15k to $12k.

I decided to cash out and regroup.

On Monday morning I am going to purchase a $10k convertible promissory note from AVTCE. You get a one-time 10% stock bonus, 10% interest/year for the 3 years of the loan. If you convert the note to stock in the 1st year its a 25% discount, 2nd year 15% discount, 3rd year 10% discount. As of now I intend to convert the entire note immediately.

Now to trim the fat.

I compiled an extensive list of MJ stocks about 41 to be exact. Watching and trying to invest in these stocks over the last 3 months has been difficult to say the least.

I realized that 41 was too many stocks for me to track. For me, I barely knew anything more about the company than the ticker symbol.

So last night I trimmed my list from 41 stocks to 14. The stocks I chose are all MJ related and their main focus according to company description is Pharmaceuticals, Supplements, Biotechnology, Bio-Pharmaceuticals, Nutraceuticals. I think these companies are less dependent on actual legality of MJ. These companies are looking for cures to Cancer, Parkinson's, Diabetes, and many more diseases.

Here is the list:

VRX Valeant Pharmaceuticals

GWPH GW PHARMACEUTICALS

GWPRF GW PHARMACEUTICALS

NTRR Neutra Corp

IGXT Intgelgenx Technologies

CYNAF Cynapsus Therapeutics

NVLX Nuvilex Inc.

ATTBF Abattis Bioceuticals

XCHC X Change Corp

CBIS Cannabis Science

PARS Pharmos Corp

BISU Bio Solutions Corp

FITX Creative Edge Nutrition Inc.

HESG Health Sciences Group Inc.

Happy Trading!
