2 Marijuana Stocks To Keep Your Eyes On This Month

As marijuana stocks start to see more momentum the sector as a whole is starting to see a better recovery. In the last few months of trading, many marijuana stocks to watch have begun to show a bit more volatility. Yet with this volatile action, has led to some cannabis companies performing better in the market. As well as just plainly showing more life than during this past downtrend. via MarijuanaStocks

Now even as the sector rises and more cannabis stocks are slowly moving up a bigger increase needs to take place for a full recovery. With just the action that has taken place since the end of April, it has eased some of the fears of current and future investors. During the 3-4 months the sector was dropping it created a lot of uncertainty for investors.

Before mid-February, the sector as a whole was consistently rising. Some cannabis companies during this time even reached new 52 week highs which is huge to see as a shareholder. Gains were being made and things were looking strong market-wise until the second week of February. Now things have started to slowly turn around but as mentioned above a stronger rise needs to happen. This because even when people bought the dip during the downtrend some marijuana stocks dropped even further.

This was a double-edged sword for many people who invest in marijuana stocks. Meaning even though the average cost of the position is down the sector needs to climb past a certain point to see a significant return. Now as the push for federal cannabis reform is in motion the sector has been building up more trading momentum. Below are a few marijuana stocks to watch as they fight to end cannabis prohibition continues in 2021.
