Taxes are one of the new ghouls scaring the cannabis industry. The Tax Code 280E bars businesses trafficking in controlled substances from taking federal tax deductions from normal operating costs. This rule can drive some cannabis business tax rates to 70%. Many in the industry have bemoaned the law claiming it is a prohibition tax law still in place during a time when cannabis is growing into a billion-dollar industry.

Back in the day, for those of you that are old enough to remember and have experienced one of the most incredible trader psychology driven stock market decline in recent history. The difference between "Black Monday" and most of the other recent stock market declines is that October 19, 1987, was driven by a true psychological panic, what we consider true price exploration, after an incredible price rally. It is different than the DOT COM (2001) decline and vastly different than the Credit Market Crisis (2008-09) because both of those events were related to true fundamental and technical evaluations. 10/21/2019 13:41

In fact, their ego may actually cause them to make worse decisions than us common investors. Being Smart Doesn’t Translate into Good Decisions. Our education and intellect should help us make better decisions. But sometimes it can blind us , because of their accompanying egos and overconfidence. Remember Long Term Capital Management?

Header. CEO and Consumer Confidence are polar opposites while Brexit chaos continues. The House marches toward Impeachment and China drags their feet on meaningful trade reforms. Earnings estimates have been falling for a year and corporate debt vs income is approaching financial crisis levels. What could possibly go wrong? S&P 500 1 Year Chart. In a vacuum, the S&P 500 would likely be at the bottom of a 20% slide with calls for another 20 just around the corner. Magazine covers and blogs would have titles like Business Week’s 1979 article “The Death of Equities." Of course, we don’t live in a vacuum and like most things in life even asset classes are in competition for your dollar. Suddenly in that dynamic the playing field levels. Stocks li. 10/21/2019 08:29

It’s a common strategy in war. Addition by division. Put simply, adding content and flair by dividing two sides, is a very effective means of polarizing two or more sides. Cultural communists use it in their war on climate change “ You’re either with us ditching plastic straws or you’re harming the environment ”. Economists use it to confirm their investment bias, “ If you’re not a Keynesian follower then you’re not a true capitalist ”. Crypto enthusiasts use it too, “ HODL or you hate Bitcoin, the future currency of everything ”. Dividing people is an easy way to engage the ones most in favor of your cause, or financial interest. And Gold vs Bitcoin is no different. I was recently asked to lend my thoughts in a candid interview and to “ rip. 10/18/2019 10:29
“In the short run, the market is a voting machine, but in the long run, it is a weighing machine.”-Benjamin Graham. Investors sometimes confuse a volatile stock for a volatile business. When a stock is up or down by 25% or more after nearly every earnings report, it’s only natural to assume the company’s cash flows are similarly volatile. Sometimes, though, a company’s stock will move dramatically based on sentiment, geopolitical issues, or other factors even if the underlying business is stable. Skechers has delivered consistent growth over the past five years, but its stock continues to swing wildly based on concerns over its long-term growth and, more recently, the potential impact of tariffs. Despite these swings, the stock has outperfo. 10/18/2019 09:29
