Marijuana ETF in Trouble—What Does It Mean for the Industry?

The First Ever Marijuana ETF Plummets

BUZ INVESTORS  Marijuana ETF It’s been a wild ride in the marijuana industry over the past few months. Stocks have been crushed, only to rally a few days later, only to find themselves on the losing end again by the next week. It’s a roller-coaster ride, one that is not for the faint of heart, but it is also to be expected in an industry with so much hype surrounding it and so much money flowing in and out. All this makes the performance of the first ever marijuana ETF an even more complicated investment opportunity, or at least one that warrants a good deal of research.

The fact is that nearly everyone believes that there is money to be made in marijuana stocks. After all, this is a widely used substance that has a built-in market and is slowly but surely making its way towards legality in most major countries. Many of the companies on the stock market today that trade in marijuana products are already successful in the medical marijuana fields. As legalization for recreational use comes, they’ll almost certainly be able to expand those profits.

The Ups and Downs of the Marijuana Industry 

HMMJ had a brief flirtation with success upon its release, but has been on a steady downward spiral since mid-April. The ETF, like any other industry, tracks marijuana stocks overall and, as such, fell in relation to the decline in share prices that many major marijuana companies experienced.

As seen in the chart below, the ETF predictably fell as marijuana stocks in general fell. This makes sense and is not a cause for alarm, should you be interested in taking advantage of the marijuana ETF.

But this ultimately leads us to the question of whether the marijuana ETF will be worth it in the long run. While of course the investment will come with a fair bit of risk, that risk is inherent to the marijuana industry as a whole. But are you better served putting your money in an ETF versus an individual stock in the marijuana stock market?

Conversely, if you want to be able to reap the rewards of massive gains at the expense of having your investment be more vulnerable, then playing with individual tickers is the way to go.

At the moment, there are a lot of companies trying to make money off the marijuana hype, and we’re going to see a lot of pretenders crop up looking to make a quick buck. While some are certain to be profitable investments, others could be absolute duds. So invest with caution when it comes to marijuana companies.

Will We Finally See a Bitcoin ETF This Year?

Buz Investors Gold vs Bitcoin Bitcoin prices have officially outpaced gold prices per ounce for the first time in the currency’s history. With the bitcoin price in 2017 trading above gold prices, you have a day that cryptocurrency

BUZ INVESTORS   Bitcoin ETF Bitcoin is back on the table. After rejecting the filing for an ETF on this cryptocurrency by Winklevoss Bitcoin Trust, the SEC is reviewing its decision once again.

The proposal actually involved listing the ETF on the Bats BZX exchange, one of the largest U.S. equities market operator (read: No Bitcoin ETF Says SEC: What’s Next?).

Now that Bats’ petition to the SEC to reconsider the decision, has been accepted by the authority, a new-found optimism has been noticed in the space. Apart from this fact, there was another tailwind that recently made bitcoin a hot investment. As per an article published on CNBC, “Japan legalized the cryptocurrency as a payment method recently and this has led to a greater amount of bitcoin being bought with yen.”



 Bitcoin ETF

>>>TRADE <<<

The Russian government is also expected to make cryptocurrencies legal financial instruments in 2018, as per the source. Minneapolis Fed President Neel Kashkari pointed to the strength of the blockchain technology supporting bitcoin lately.

Overall, the currency has been firing on all cylinders since the beginning of 2017. Most recently, the currency surpassed the mark of $1,700. Its value beat the $900 mark in late December for the first time since February 2014. In mid-2015, the currency was at around $200 (read: Explaining Bitcoin and Crypto Currency).

What is Bitcoin?

Bitcoins are ‘mined’ by using a greater amount of computer processing power. However, since there is a fixed amount of bitcoins, it becomes hard to ‘mine’ for the coins when the limit is reached. The best part of this system is that it is beyond the reach of central banks (read: Believe It or Not: Winklevoss Bitcoin ETF on the Horizon).

What Lies Ahead?

The tussle between the U.S. Securities Exchange Commission and Winklevoss over the launch has been going on for about three years. In fact, the issuer has restructured the proposal for the Bitcoin ETF multiple times.

The currency is in the limelight probably because of the fact that “bitcoin isn’t regulated by any government and has been used by consumers worldwide to shelter assets from inflation or political upheavals in their home countries.” As per an article published on CNBC, Bitcoin is emerging as a safe haven asset like gold.

With SPDR Gold Shares (GLD )– Free Report) coming under pressure due to rising rate prospects in the U.S. and a likely higher greenback, one can possibly find refuge in seemingly safe or alternative assets like bitcoin.

The operating backdrop may be strengthening for bitcoin, but the SEC is seemingly looking for more proof of the safety in this trade. Plus, after the refusal in March, chances of a SEC approval in the near term is less likely, unless and until further changes are probably done in the proposed fund.

As of now, investors probably have to be happy with traditional safe-haven assets and gold and silver bullion ETFs like (GLD) and iShares Silver Trust (SLV)Free Report) (read: 3 Safe-Haven ETFs to Watch on Market Correction).

Cash continues to flow into emerging market hedge funds

Assets under management in emerging market hedge funds rose another 5.6% in April, according to Hedge Fund Research, with India and China standing out.

Money is following returns: The HFRI Emerging Markets Index was up 1.6% last month, and 7.8% for the year. The HFRI China Index was up 1.2% in April and more than 10% year-to-date – besting the Shanghai Composite by almost 900 basis points.

Horizons (HMMJ) ETF: World’s First Marijuana ETF Is Worth a Second Look

Marijuana ETF: A Game Changer for Investors?

BUZ INVESTORS World’s First Marijuana ETF Viva la revolución! That’s the slogan jubilant potheads are raising in Canada, as the country is officially going to become the second in the world to legalize recreational marijuana.
Viva la revolución!

BUZ INVESTORS  World’s First Marijuana ETF  Viva la revolución! That’s the slogan jubilant potheads are raising in Canada, as the country is officially going to become the second in the world to legalize recreational marijuana. By July of next year, weed lovers in Canada will freely puff joints. But they are not alone in the celebration. There are thousands of those who invested in marijuana stocks and are now watching their investments multiply. But if you missed the boat earlier, fate is once again knocking at your doors, because we have just been given the first ever marijuana ETF!

Potential investors in the U.S. and Canada have been anxiously waiting to see which way the winds blow for weed legalization before getting into the pot craze. Now that Canada has given it a green signal and many U.S. states are likewise considering legalization, many of us feel ready to set sail. The only problem that remains is to figure out the directions to the right marijuana stocks to watch right now.



World’s First Marijuana ETF

Prices have tripled and even quadrupled for marijuana stocks, and it’s natural for us to feel jumpy. Frankly, nobody likes to overpay. But for those of us who feel we’re late to the party, this new opportunity could be a game changer for our portfolios.

Should You Buy Horizons’ HMMJ Marijuana ETF?

It’s okay if you’re new to investing and wondering; “What the heck is an ETF?” Let me make it easy for you. An Exchange-Traded Fund (ETF) is the fraternal twin of a mutual fund. It is similar in essence but different on the face of it.

Like a mutual fund, an ETF pools together different investments into a single fund. So an investor who doesn’t have the time or knowledge of analyzing individual investments can simply buy a fund and forget.

The HMMJ ETF tracks the North American Medical Marijuana Index, which includes 16 top medical marijuana companies in the U.S. and Canada. Now Horizons’ Marijuana ETF constitutes most of these stocks, but not all of them. So, it aims to replicate the performance of the index, plus earn an alpha. In layman’s lingo, alpha is the extra return over the index return.

You may now be wondering why someone would consider buying a passive ETF when they could have a mutual fund manager actively trading for them instead. For lower fees, duh! Mutual fund fees charge much higher fees, usually in excess of two percent of invested funds.

Here is the list of all the companies included in the ETF.

Company Weight Exchange Company Weight Exchange
Aurora Cannabis Inc
10.26% Canada
Insys Therapeutics Inc
9.81% U.S.A.
Zynerba Pharmaceuticals Inc (NASDAQ:ZYNE) 9.35% U.S.A.
Aphria Inc
9.33% Canada
Canopy Growth Corp (TSE:WEED) 9.07% Canada Scotts Miracle-Gro Co (NYSE:SMG) 8.9% U.S.A.
GW Pharmaceuticals PLC- ADR (NASDAQ:GWPH) 8.66% U.S.A. Cronos Group Inc (CVE:MJN) 7.98% Canada
Organigram Holdings Inc (CVE:OGI) 5.75% Canada CanniMed Therapeutics Inc (TSE:CMED) 5.33% Canada
Supreme Pharmaceuticals Inc (CNSX:SL) 4.52% Canada Emblem Corp (CVE:EMC) 4.44% Canada
ICC International Cannabis Corp (CVE:ICC) 2.87% Canada Emerald Health Therapeutics Inc (CVE:EMH) 2.72% Canada
Hydropothecary Corp (CVE:THCX) 0.76% Canada Cash 0.24%

Is Marijuana ETF Safe?

It’s evident that all the major marijuana plays have been duly given weight in the ETF, albeit many of them are penny stocks. Also note that there are quite a few U.S.-based marijuana companies, yet Canadian marijuana stocks dominate the ETF. The two factors may add to the risk of the ETF.

Now, no investment is ever 100% safe. So this marijuana ETF is no exception. But roughly speaking, an ETF diversifies your risk across various securities instead of exposing you to one or more individual securities.

On the same lines, it makes sense for a marijuana ETF to be a safer play compared to most marijuana stocks in this exceedingly speculative industry.

Bottom Line on HMMJ Marijuana ETF

The legal medical marijuana industry is already a multi-billion-dollar industry that generated over $6.0 billion last year in North America alone. The impending legalization in Canada and many states in the U.S. will likely kill marijuana’s illegal black market. In turn, that money will also start flowing to the legal marijuana companies.Like up on FACEBOOK
