For those of you jumping in – the first post in the following thread and the experience of others on the chain should be a salutory lesson to those looking at the next Tilray

DO YOUR RESEARCH

IT’S A LONG GAME

And — as we have discovered over the years at cannabis law report – beware dodgy players, over excited executives and many others before you start poughing in your cash

We’ve been reporting faily on this shit for half a decade and one thing we’ve learnt for sure, people get burnt and will carry on being burnt… DO YOUR RESEARCH

Reddit traders are piling into cannabis stocks and driving up valuations, but experts say they’re betting on the wrong companies

 

We’re reminded of the old Suzie Quatro  number

The Post

My Take

It’s hard to see red, it’s even harder to wash that stuff off but if it makes anyone feel better then I’ve achieved my goal.

The industry is crashing, hype can only carry a stock so far (see CGC/ACB/Aphria/Tillray all circa 2018) but speaking from that experience here we are three years later and those who were once bag holders are now being replaced by the next cycle of bag holders and the previous holders are actually making good money…and all it took was three years.

If anything, the industry crash means ETF’s will be dirt cheap. Spread your risk, do your research and don’t listen to Reddit (myself included, I’m a just a legal paper pusher for a big telecom). If you still have holdings that are driving just leave it and/or dollar cost average yourselves to a break even and then wait it out.

It’s not a guarantee of course but if you need motivation look no further to the people posting their 2021 gains from holding the bag in 2018.

This isn’t a long play…it’s a loooooong play.

Puff puff…and wait folks and best of luck to you all.

Market is red today and we already talk of a crash and bagholders and such?
For most stocks, we are just back to prices seen two days ago.

Right? Did everyone forget the fucking market we’re dealing with right now? You think this is about to just randomly stop?

Like with a 1400 stimulus check coming soon how could anyone possibly think this bull run is close to ending? If this correction scares you then you have no business investing.

Edit: the s&p and Dow have the same correction today. It’s a market wide dip. Keep calm and buy more stonks!

It’s because of how violent the moves have been.

Many of the OG holders here have gone through multiple boom and bust cycles already. I’ve been in APHA since 2017 and have seen my holdings go from $4.5 to $24 back down to $9 back up to $20 and then down to $6 back up to $12, and then down to $3.5 and now back up to $40.

If I didn’t learn anything along the way I would be dumb as fuck.

I sold half this time at $40 and couldn’t be happier.

I learned from my losses in 2017-18…and it was a hard hard lesson at the time. After holding Aphria for the last two years I took 50% of my profits out on the way up at three levels and reinvested the proceeds in top 4 MSO’s. Honestly I look at the 2000 shares of Aphria I have left and wish I would have sold more seeing the bloodbath today. But overall I am happy I took profits and still believe in Aphria long term. For those of you new to weed stocks…this is how it goes. You gotta be prepared for massive volatility. GLTA!

I only mention that because in spite of the best advice people will still go another direction. I’d rather see people spread the love vs going “yolo” on one stock.

For transparency I’m heavily invested in HMMJ which holds CGC/Acreage/Aphria/Tillray/ACB (obligatory “fuck you ACB”) which has great entry potential to a national US market. I’ve been steadily picking up cheap prices with every down and I truly believe it will explode once the US market opens up. Also, my outlook is 20+ years on this industry in North America.

I also have some shares of HMUS which offers more US exposure and it’s set to split 3:1 EOD. That coupled with a crash will make this ETF grossly cheap for long term investors.

In the end people will do what they want and since I’ve been a long time lurker and I both sides of ups and downs…and then seeing the whole GME/AMC fiasco play out and it now leaking into cannabis stock AND todays down turn, I just want people to people to at least look at their options before crying themselves to sleep (like I used to).

But I digress…if I were right 10% of the time I wouldn’t be here sitting on my couch replying to a Reddit comment. Instead I figured I’d try and make bag holders feel a little more hopeful. To each their own.

Not Selling Until World Domination

Legalization in the US is on the horizon. Plenty of catalysts. This is nothing but a cooldown from a run with no built support. As someone who bag held for 3 years, I’m pretty confident that this sector will be soaring again once legislation picks up.

No need to doom and gloom this as a “crash”. Today should have been expected for anyone who didn’t just jump into the sector after hearing reddit or the news hype it up yesterday. Seeing red always sucks, but you only wound yourself if you actually sell it off.

How is this a crash? Lots of prices are still higher than a few days ago and only a day trend.

People not knowing what is going on thought there was a mad dash on weed stocks and bought like crazy and when they say the selloff we all expected from Tillray others started selling not knowing what was going on.

Most will bounce back and been buying on the cheap!

I’m one of the old timers that has been in this space since 2018. MSO’s (and to some extent the better LP’s) still have a lot of catalysts coming up. Repeal of 280E, up-listing and banking in the near term. I am holding strong on my core positions (granted my cost basis is really low on most of my positions) With that said, I look at these dips as a buying opportunity for the better positioned companies and ETF’s such as MSOS.

A boy can only hope.

Yes but when people invested emotionally vs logically it’s better to communicate with emotional terms.

(If they invested using a fundamental approach there wouldn’t be any crying over this spilled milk…but who am I trying to kid, there are no fundamentals with weed stocks right now)

So to those of us that are new here. We just paid for our predecessors losses. Lesson learned! There have definitely been some pming and collusion going on in here but that’s how it goes I guess. It’s the old “hey give me your lunch money play”. Touché ladies and gents, well played!

And in three years (maybe more, maybe less) or if more news comes from the US with Schumer’s bill and create another frenzy you’ll find yourself getting angry because you sold your “bags” for not as much profit as you could have.

The only difference between a masochist and a cannabis investor is the lack of safe word to get out of it.

I can personally attest to this….. it’s been a long three yrs, but the last month has changed everything. The experience gained and the profits realized are life changing.

Be patient, be careful and just know the industry is young and there will be money to be made again!

Holding hmmj at 5.80. Im happy. Definitely some fuckery here and there, but I’m looking forward to us legalization. Also have some hmus at 36(bagholding for a couple of years) and am also happy with the future prospects. The only thing I’m worried about is a broad market crash, which I think might come soon…

Things are currently being pumped by new money, and dumped by old money. I had -50% returns on my weed stock, then all of a sudden I’m UP over 100%, so yeah, I recouped my original investment, and I’m sure other longs did the same. We’ll be back again to add more, buying the dips along the way…

Not selling here! I averaged up honestly, I didn’t expect THIS big of a dip so I made mistakes there… but I’m on this rollercoaster. It’s an absolutely necessary correction to continue heading up! Biden hasn’t even passed the bill and people are selling LMAO.

Long haul baby, this isn’t like 2018 I hope 🙂 even if it is, I planned on holding for years to come regardless! If I get the opportunity to average DOWN I absolutely will

I completely agree. I’ve been accumulating weed stocks since 2019 and just kept averaging down and still some were %90 down lol. Hexo was at .70 last year just think about that. We’re just starting to see the market grow and it’s barely established. Play smart but this is definitely a solid long term investment.

Why do you think the industry is crashing? It’s definitely volatile but the industry is in its infancy. I think it’s too early to make such conclusions.

Smart people take profits from their stocks. It’s literally how you make money doing this. That’s all this was is people banking their newly found riches like you’re supposed to do. This stock ran up so quickly without much sense behind it besides a new round of hype — once articles started to hit saying “Reddit blah blah blah weedstocks”, sell the news.

Buy the dip is the plan if weed continues to be your long term play. All this feels like for me is “Holy Shit, CGC is on sale 20% this week!”

I gotta start getting in to swing trading though because I didn’t sell today even though I too realized yesterday “this share price is wayyy too high right now”. Anybody got any good articles or texts to read on swinging? Haha, not that kind… I mean unless… ?

Just look at the crash, it was before the market and a bunch of bullshit between hedges and ultra-wealthy with unlimited resources to manipulate the stock. They pushed it down before retail investors like us were even allowed to trade, by market open everyone panicked. It happens regularly, nothing changed but for a rigged system taking everyone’s money who sold today. If you haven’t sold, you haven’t realized any losses and can wait for the green again. (Yes I’ve been holding years)

Also, it will go back up. If you think this is hype based pump (things like the stupid UK distro), wait till the actual merger, wait till actual legalization, hell just allowing MSOs access to banking in the US is going to spike things upwards across the sector.

Always beware when giants are shorting shit outside market hours that you can actually trade it’s them getting ready to fuck you over.

One key difference is in 2018 the hype was for Canadian legalization.

As a Canadian and in hindsight it was laughable to even entertain the idea that our government knows how to do capitalism properly and not regulate things to hell.

This time the green rush is in America. America has a track record of successful capitalism even if it mean oppression.

One day pull back. Not a crash. When you see long term bull markets, there are often really dramatic retrenchments. Same in the opposite direction for long term bear markets.

I remember reading, “if you wouldn’t buy at those prices, you shouldn’t hold at those prices” and I think that plus seeing the media frenzy is enough to clue me in on selling. I’d rather take a small gain versus be left holding the bag. People hype diamond handing or “buy and hold”. But that statement is incomplete. Should be “buy and hold the bag”. Nothing wrong with taking profits. At the end of the day, everyone is trying to make money. Good luck to you.

2018 was very different to 2021. The cannabis industry has come a long way and is expected to see substantially more growth in the next 5 years than it did in the previous 5. Mexico has fully legalized, a country with 4x the population of Canada. The United States has legalization on the table, a country with nearly 10x the population of Canada. Europe and Asia are beginning to open up to Medical Marijuana and CBD. I think this ia one of the best long term investments out there right now.
