Rankings

The chart shows the relative rankings of the five select popular marijuana stocks. Those rankings are based on the six screens of the ZYX Change Method. Please click here to learn about the six screens.

Risk-adjusted rankings are more useful for medium- and long-term positions. Non-risk-adjusted rankings are more useful for short-term or trade-around positions.

What to do now

There are millions to be made in marijuana stocks. However, these stocks are volatile. Volatility will cause many to lose their shirts. Segmented money flows are the best tool to keep your marijuana investments prudent.

There is merit to holding core marijuana positions. Astute investors would want to make sure that their position sizes are correct. Arora’s 14th Law is directly applicable in this situation: To be successful at investing and trading, become a master of position sizing. Position sizing is critical to investing in marijuana stocks. In addition, using techniques such as trade-around positions is especially important.

Those not in marijuana stocks may consider waiting patiently for signals to buy select marijuana stocks. There is too much risk in buying these stocks at these levels. Of course, there are exceptions in buying special situations in marijuana stocks as they develop, and also for short-term trades.
