Sell DryShips on the surge

DryShips soared by more than 50% in today's trade following news that CEO George Economou agreed to enter

DryShips (NASDAQ:DRYS) soared by more than 50% in today’s trade following news that CEO George Economou agreed to enter into a private placement with the company and the company ended its controversial stock issuance to Kalani Investments.



 

DryShips

 

But Heard On The Street‘s Spencer Jakab notes that Economou’s payment “effectively will consist of shipping assets, redeemed loans and a series of preferred stock that had given him super-voting rights that had cemented his control over the company during the rapid dilution.”

“Economou remains the captain of this ship. That is reason enough for those fortunate enough to have made a quick gain to hop off at the next port,” Jakab writes.

Marijuana Real Estate With excitement bubbling over the growth potential in the marijuana stock market, investors are keen on which pot stocks

Marijuana Real Estate: The Most Exciting Marijuana Stocks That Don’t Sell Marijuana

Marijuana Real Estate

Marijuana Real Estate With excitement bubbling over the growth potential in the marijuana stock market, investors are keen on which pot stocks

Marijuana Real Estate With excitement bubbling over the growth potential in the marijuana stock market, investors are keen on which pot stocks are the best to ride that wave of hype into comfortable returns. But as the industry grows, so too will the options presented to investors who are bullish on weed. For instance, what’s good for Tesla Inc (NASDAQ:(TSLA) will also be good for lithium mining companies. They are linked industries, after all. The same applies to a new scaffold industry that is developing around the marijuana stock market: marijuana real estate.

Marijuana real estate refers to the need many of these pot companies have, which is to find enough land to produce copious amounts of weed in order to satisfy customer demand.

Marijuana Laws

One of the reasons that marijuana real estate is in such an interesting position is because pot, as we all know, is in a precarious legal situation itself.

The federal government, spearheaded by U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions, has consistently laid out its vision for marijuana—harsher crackdowns and more federal involvement in drug enforcement.

Whereas the Obama administration took a laissez-faire attitude towards states that pass legislation regulating recreational pot, the Trump White House has made it clear that it intends to be more hands-on with pot…and not in a good way.

The first-ever cannabis real estate investment trust went public in October and has been testing the waters in the marijuana stock market.

 



Marijuana Real Estate

 

marijuana stock market chart

 

The company, Innovative Industrial Properties Inc (NYSE:(IIPR), went public in October and has a focus on buying properties of specialized industrial medical cannabis facilities. The idea being that the purchase will imbue cannabis producers with much-needed capital while the REIT can in turn offer lease-back deals so they don’t lose the land.

Marijuana REIT, IIPR Stock, and the Marijuana Stock Market

So has IIPR stock been a roaring success? Not exactly.

The company came in at just about the worst time in the marijuana stock market, getting hit by the downturn as many proclaimed the pot bubble had burst. The stock is down about nine percent since it went public, hardly a great return on investment, especially considering the strength of the stock market in so many other areas.

What we’re looking at here instead is a proof-of-concept test. If IIPR can bounce back, and if you believe that the marijuana market will rise again, then it stands to reason that IIPR stock will follow. In that case, we’re looking at a pioneer in a novel industry with a novel business model.

US STOCKS SELL OFF Wall Street traded lower on Thursday as investors took profit from the prior session’s gains and buying enthusiasm in banks and a positive read on growth were unable to support the wider market.

U.S. STOCKS SELL OFF AS BANKS, UPBEAT GDP UNABLE TO SUPPORT GAINS

US STOCKS SELL OFF Wall Street traded lower on Thursday as investors took profit from the prior session’s gains and buying enthusiasm in banks and a positive read on growth were unable to support the wider market.

BUZ INVETORS  US STOCKS SELL OFF Wall Street traded lower on Thursday as investors took profit from the prior session’s gains and buying enthusiasm in banks and a positive read on growth were unable to support the wider market.

At 11:11AM ET (15:11GMT), the Dow Jones fell 56 points, or 0.26%, the S&P 500 lost 14 points, or 0.58%, while the Nasdaq Composite traded down 85 points, or 1.36%.

Tech was once again leading the losses Wednesday , nearly erasing what had been the Nasdaq’s largest one day rise since last November in the prior session.

US STOCKS SELL OFF

 

Financial institutions celebrated the fact that the Federal Reserve (Fed) did not object to any of the capital plans of the 34 banks it reviewed in the second part of the annual stress tests implemented in the wake of the financial crisis.

Several big Wall Street banks announced significant increases in their plans to return capital to shareholders after getting the green light from the U.S. central bank.

The KBW bank index, known as the BKX, jumped nearly 2%, with Goldman Sachs (NYSE:GS) and JPMorgan Chase (NYSE:JPM) leading the advancers on the Dow.

In other company news, Staples (NASDAQ:SPLS) jumped 2% after the retailer confirmed a definitive agreement to be acquired by Sycamore Partners for $10.25 a share.

On the downside, Rite Aid (NYSE:RAD) tumbled 25% as Walgreens Boots Alliance (NASDAQ:WBA) opted to abandon the merger offer due to concerns over anti-trust and instead decided to buy nearly half of the smaller rival’s U.S. stores for $5.18 billion.

Positive news came from the economic front, as first quarter growth was surprisingly revised up to 1.4%.

Although weekly jobless claims came in above forecasts, the data confirmed the continuation of the solid U.S. labor market.

Still ahead, St. Louis Fed president James Bullard was scheduled to give a presentation on the U.S. monetary policy and the economy at 1:00PM ET (17:00GMT).

Meanwhile, oil prices extended gains into a sixth session to hit the strongest level in two weeks in North American trade on Thursday, after U.S. government data revealed the biggest weekly decline in domestic crude production in almost a year.

Data from the U.S. Energy Information Administration on Wednesday showed that total domestic crude production fell by 100,000 barrels a day to 9.25 million barrels, the biggest decline in weekly output since July 2016.

USDCHF

BUZ INVESTORS USDCHF Sell at 0.9960 The USD is trading at 0.9912 against the CHF at 09:40 GMT this morning, 0.5% lower from the New York close. Amid no economic releases in Switzerland today, investor sentiment would be governed by global macroeconomic events.  During the session, the pair traded at a high of 0.9965 and a low of 0.9903. In the New York session yesterday, the US Dollar slightly rose against the Swiss Franc to close at 0.9962. Immediate downside, the first support level is seen at 0.9882, while on the upside, the first resistance level is situated at 0.9963.

 

As dollar’s decline has gathered momentum, adding credence to our view that the selloff from 1.0100 top is still in progress, hence further weakness towards support at 0.9859 would be seen, however, break there is needed to retain bearishness and bring subsequent fall towards previous chart support at 0.9813 which is likely to hold from here due to near term oversold condition.

In view of this, would not chase would be prudent to sell dollar on recovery as 0.9960 should limit upside. Above previous support at 0.9987 would defer and suggest an intra-day low is formed instead, risk a stronger rebound to 1.0025 but price should falter below 1.0045-50, bring another decline later.

Euro has staged a strong rebound after falling to 1.0839, suggesting consolidation above this level would be seen and near term upside risk remains for further gain to 1.0997 resistance, however, if our view that top has been formed at 1.1025 is correct, upside would be limited and price should falter below recent high at 1.1025, bring another decline later. Below 1.0895-00 would bring weakness to 1.0855-60 but break there is needed to retain bearishness an extend the fall from 1.1025 top to 1.0821, then 1.0795-00 later.

In view of this, we are still looking to sell euro on further subsequent rebound as 1.0997 resistance should limit upside. Only break of said resistance at 1.1025 would abort and signal early upmove has resumed instead, bring further gain to 1.1050-55 and later 1.1075-80 before prospect of another retreat.

BUZ INVESTORS  Trade Idea EURUSD This morning at 09:40 GMT, the EUR is trading at 1.0872 against the USD, 0.06% higher from the New York close. In economic news, data indicated that Germany’s wholesale price index advanced in April. This morning, the pair traded at a high of 1.0893 and a low of 1.0859. The Euro traded 0.11% lower against the US Dollar in the New York session yesterday, with the pair closing the session at 1.0865. The pair is expected to its find support at 1.0851 and its first resistance at 1.0893.

As the single currency has recovered after falling briefly to 1.0839, suggesting consolidation above this level would be seen and corrective bounce to 1.0895-00 is likely, however, reckon upside would be limited to 1.0930-35 and renewed selling interest should emerge around 1.0955-60, bring another decline later. A break of said support at 1.0839 would extend the fall from 1.1025 top for at least a strong retracement of early upmove towards 1.0800 but reckon 1.0770-75 would hold from here.

In view of this, we are looking to sell euro on recovery as 1.0955-60 should limit upside. Above 1.0970 would defer and risk a stronger rebound but a break above resistance at 1.0997 is needed to signal pullback from 1.1025 has ended, bring retest of this level later.
