IT stocks


Youre strapping yourself to the market rollercoaster, which does not guarantee that it will be upor even back to your starting pointwhen the time comes that you have to get off. The longer you are in the market, the more uncertainty you faceespecially in todays wacky socio-economic and political climateand plenty of folks translate uncertainty as risk. Then theres the basic idea that if the market becomes less risky over time, it would create what amounts to a free lunch for anyone who sticks around long enough to enjoy it. For anyone who believes in efficient markets, thats anathema; the market is supposed to finds those edges and advantages and exploit those strategies until they are useless and dead. The concept behind the new research involves time diversification, an idea that experts and academics argue over, with some suggesting its real and powerful and others saying it doesnt exist.

You have to be a dope to buy marijuana stocks

A handful of these stocks have recently crept into the top Scutify trending stocks board and yesterday I was asked about three or four times about various pot stocks in my weekly TradingWithCody.com chat. So heres my take on the pot stocks like $HEMP /quotes/zigman/11335612/delayed /quotes/nls/phot PHOT $CBIS $MJNA and so on. Legal marijuana distribution and growing is way too new and full of scams out there. Criminals that are still being rooted out. You literally have to be very into that industry to get any idea of whats trustworthy and whats not in the stocks that are in the weed industry. I think that most of the publicly-traded marijuana stuff, including the aforementioned names and companies with symbols likeCannabis Science $CBIS andMedical Marijuana $MJNA, is hype and that the only way to separate the potential good buys in the space from the bad buys best cheap stocks to invest in is to do a bunch of on the ground research and meet the companies and tour their facilities and what not.
