Low volatility marijuana stocks for the New Year

The 2018 year in cannabis was quite up and down in terms of volatility for the majority of the large stocks in the industry. As we inch into 2019, it seems as though marijuana stocks with lower levels of volatility may be the way to go. Of course, these picks are for the safer investor and for those who day trade, stocks with larger fluctuations may be a better choice.

These pot stocks have the most cash

The marijuana industry is coming off what could arguably be described as its greatest year in history. Last year, we witnessed Canada become the first industrialized country in the world to legalize recreational cannabis, and saw a handful of significant advances in the U.S., be it through the legalization of hemp and hemp-based cannabidiol, the approval of the very first cannabis-derived drug, or the continued legalization of medical or recreational weed at the state level.

Better buy: Aurora Cannabis vs. Tilray

A war is raging within the confines of America's northern neighbor, Canada. A marijuana war. Canada's decision to legalize recreational marijuana use among adults last year sparked a flood of licensing applications to Health Canada to grow, sell, and perform research on cannabis. At the end of 2018, for example, the agency reported a whopping 132 companies with licenses already in hand to cultivate marijuana and several hundred more applications currently under review.

The 5 top marijuana value stocks in 2019

The marijuana industry had what can only be described as an odd year in 2018. In one sense, it gained legitimacy like never before with Canada choosing to legalize recreational marijuana, and a handful of U.S. states also giving cannabis the green light in some capacity.

Then again, after years of big gains, marijuana stock investors weren't able to participate in this good news in 2018. Most pot stocks ended the year lower by a double-digit percentage, with some losing more than half of their value.

Canadian marijuana stocks are taking over the market

For those who follow the marijuana stock market, it’s clear that Canada has been leading the charge since they legalized the use of recreational cannabis. After October 17th, the day Canada began allowing sales of adult-use cannabis, many stocks were able to come to fruition.

Since that time, there have been a series of new supply agreements and international movements. All of this has helped to cement Canada’s spot at the top of the marijuana industry. Many large investments into the industry have made headlines in the past several months as billions of dollars continue to flow into the market.

The 5 biggest stock market winners of 2018

The year 2018 has come and gone. For most publicly traded companies, it was a bad year. But a handful of businesses and individuals stood out from the crowd and had great runs in the year that passed. Similar to Apple Inc during the late 2000s recession, there are always stocks that become runaway bulls in bear markets. Despite the TSX losing 15% of its value last year, there were a surprising number of stock market successes in the same 12-month period.

In this article I’ll be chronicling five of them–starting with one whose fortunes may not look rosy this year, but had a great run in the last.

Canadian stocks just suffered the worst year in a decade, but analysts say the future looks brighter

Canadian equity strategists may have spent New Year’s Eve eating crow, as not even the most bearish outlook foresaw what turned out to be the worst year for stocks since 2008.

That hasn’t stopped them from predicting double-digit gains for 2019.

The S&P/TSX Composite Index will end 2019 at 16,644, 16 per cent above its 2018 closing level, according to the average of eight estimates compiled by Bloomberg. That would be the biggest increase since 2016, when stocks gained 18 per cent.
