dropped from mid-February. Here’s a better description before the recent downtrend the many marijuana stocks were trading at higher market positions. Furthermore from November 2020 to mid-February when cannabis stock dipped it most times would recover to a higher level. As of late, that has not been the case for the marijuana sector.
Right around the end of April moving into May marijuana stocks began to wake up a bit. The sector during this time was incredibly volatile but overall marijuana stocks were not seeing the gains they once did. A few factors that could have contributed to this are people started selling off their position to recoup what they could. Another reason for this is as mentioned above the growing concern of the future trading for marijuana stocks.
Another issue other shareholders are seeing is when progress or news such as positive earings is out and adds not momentum to the sector. At one point in time when good news or strong financial reports were released, it would help bring momentum into the sector. As of late the big focus and what’s helping cannabis stocks rise are all based on more states going legal and federal cannabis reform.
Marijuana Stock And Industry Update
Some might fully understand how this plays a big part in the cannabis industry and its overall progress and growth. With more states going legal not only will it add more pressure on congress but it also will create new cannabis markets that will generate more money. As well with federal reform in place many feel this will be the catalyst that brings marijuana stocks back up to higher trading levels.
