Wayne Gretzky famously said that one should not skate to where the puck is, but rather to where the puck is going to be. The cannabis industry is where the puck is going to be.
Today we are launching Stock Card's The Green Fund. It's a portfolio managed by Mark Bernberg, a successful technology entrepreneur and the founder of TheGreenFund.com and an avid stock market investor who shares the vision of investing in well-managed companies in growing industries. You can get to know Mark and learn his insightful thoughts and ideas related to the states of valuations, regulations and fluctuations in our latest episode of Renegade Investors podcast.
Why cannabis sector? Isn't it just a commodity, agricultural product, a hyped-up group of companies that make no money?
Au contraire mon amis ...
These days, anyone who touches the cannabis industry is applauded by the investors. Take Shopify (Ticker: SHOP). This Canadian company has been at the forefront of cannabis eCommerce and the investors have praised the company with gold. The stock price has been up significantly in the past few months as the result of the green rush. But, when it comes to The Green Fund, we are going beyond the rush!
We have been working with Mark - The Green Fund's portfolio publisher - to pick up six companies for this portfolio, to start with. We've researched several cannabis companies, and despite the outstanding growth each of these companies has had in the past few months and quarters, they are still poised to grow further from where they are standing today. Over the next four weeks, we will add one new stock to the portfolio, and once the month is over, we will add new companies to the portfolio as and when Mark discovers them. Usually, we introduce just a few stocks per theme. But, because the cannabis stocks are volatile, investing in only one stock may not be such a good idea unless you are sure that emotionally you can tolerate the volatility. Mark decided to give you a few well-managed companies so that you can spread your investment in the sector.
The good news is that with the launch of The Green Fund, we are also introducing a new "Portfolio Follow" feature. Just like how you used to follow individual Stock Card,s you can now follow any portfolio, and you will get notified by email when new companies are added or removed from each of the Stock Card's portfolios on the Portfolio Store. The video below shows you how:
