Top Cannabis ETFs For Your Portfolio In 2021
Top Cannabis ETFs In Q4 2021
Are you looking for ways to invest in the cannabis industry in 2021? For the past several months many leading cannabis stocks have experienced a pullback that has left the cannabis sector trading at some of its lowest market value this year. Although leading cannabis companies have been performing well and delivering significant revenue growth in 2021 it has not translated into market gains.
Instead, the cannabis sector seems to be influenced heavily by federal cannabis reform or the lack of it. With Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer not introducing his legislation earlier in the year, the cannabis sector has suffered significant declines. Now in the fourth quarter cannabis investors are hoping for something to be passed in Congress whether it be The SAFE Banking Act or The MORE Act.
But with top pot stocks trading at lower levels, it could be a good time to find ways to invest in the cannabis industry long term. One way more retail investors are turning toward is cannabis ETFs. An exchange traded fund or ETF is a type of security that tracks an index, sector, commodity, or other asset and is bought and sold on the stock exchange like a regular stock. ETFs are like mutual funds and can provide a way to invest in a certain sector as opposed to just one company.
Investing In Marijuana ETFs And The Cannabis Market
Top marijuana ETFs in 2021 have declined along with the cannabis sector. Most invest in a specific area of the cannabis market giving investors exposure to certain parts of the industry. On one hand, you have cannabis ETFs that are heavily invested in the US cannabis industry. And others that have Canadian and medical cannabis companies in their holdings. In addition, some of these marijuana ETFs also provide a dividend for shareholders. In general, not many top marijuana stocks to invest in currently provide dividends.
