2 Marijuana Stocks To Watch In The 2nd Week Of August

Over the last several month’s marijuana stocks have been moving up and down in the market. Much of this volatile trading can be attributed to a few factors. For one there is a growing amount of uncertainty and skepticism around marijuana stocks. This stems from the downtrend that took place from the middle of February till right around the end of April.

Even with the market trading at a lower average more action is starting to happen. Now this action comes in the form of some volatile trading. What this means is a particular company may be trading up and down and some people are able to get in on the dip and exit on the bounce. Another factor to this volatile trading is simply how unpredictable the sector is. When investors and shareholders are unsure they will most time hold their position or sell it.

It seems some of this downward volatility is also coming from people selling off their shares which would drive the price of that cannabis stock down. Another factor that may play a part is the push for federal cannabis reform. Many marijuana companies are in need of better cannabis reform to which federal legalization is the key. By ending cannabis prohibition in the U.S. it would open many doors for marijuana companies that were once closed due to federal law.

But even with the cannabis industry still thriving and growing it has not resonated amongst the sector as it did before mid-February. Nonetheless, more action is taking place to a degree as some analysts feel the sector will return back to previous trading levels before the downtrend. Even if it’s not a full recovery with how the sector is trading now is a good time to find top marijuana stocks to buy.
