What Is Driving Big Gains In Marijuana Penny Stocks

Marijuana Penny StocksWhich marijuana penny stocks have had the biggest gains since marijuana became legal to sell in Colorado on January 1, 2014?  A number of marijuana penny stocks experienced incredible gains in price since the beginning of 2014.  The entire sector of marijuana stocks got red hot just after the new year, as the national media focused attention on Colorado’s implementation of legal marijuana sales within the state.  Many  marijuana penny stocks shot higher by hundreds and in some cases thousands of percent over the following five weeks.  This article profiles some of the marijuana penny stocks that experienced the biggest gains since the new year began.

While it is too late to profit from the January 2014 surge in marijuana penny stock prices, it is worthwhile to perform an analysis of which marijuana penny stocks had the biggest gains during early 2014 to identify which stocks may be big gainers the next time the marijuana stock sector heats up and is poised for another round of above-average gains.  While it is difficult to determine which events might trigger additional sector-wide rallies in marijuana stocks, there are two events that could possibly spur new rallies, including marijuana legalization initiatives in several states that will be on the ballot in November 2014 and Washington State’s plans for allowing legal marijuana sales to commence on December 1, 2014.

The marijuana industry is still quite small, with only two states out of fifty having made it legal for recreational use and a number of others having legalized it for medicinal purposes.  Companies in the marijuana sector are just getting their operations off of the ground.  The growth potential for the marijuana industry and marijuana penny stocks in coming years is enormous, which means there will likely be many more thousand percent plus gainers to come.  A look at which stocks recently had large gains can yield valuable insights regarding the ones may be big gainers in the future.

Caution Is Advised When Trading Marijuana Penny Stocks That Have Made Big Gains

Hemp IncMarijuana penny stocks that have made big gains should be traded with extreme caution.  Penny stock trading is all about momentum, and if the momentum that has propelled marijuana penny stocks higher in early 2014 fades, the stocks will come crashing back down to much lower levels.  The idea behind tracking the marijuana penny stocks that have made the biggest gains since the beginning of 2014 is to bring into focus the stocks that may be big gainers next time there is a penny stock rally in the marijuana sector.  From a traders perspective, the best scenario would be if these stocks settle down and trade at lower levels with light volume to set them up for the next wave of buying and potential future gains.  In the meantime, there is no point in getting caught up in any downdraft that develops in these stocks, as they find new levels to build a base.

Keep in mind that marijuana penny stocks are in most cases very young companies with uncertain finances and uncertain futures.  Some may even be outright scams, as it appears that many penny stock companies are quickly jumping on the bandwagon and putting out Press Releases (PRs) regarding the startup of marijuana related businesses that may be real or illusionary.

Proper due diligence is necessary to root out the scams and separate them from legitimate marijuana companies that truly have the potential to experience explosive growth in coming years, as the marijuana business grows.  A good place to start due diligence is on the Pink Sheets (otcmarkets.com) website.  Check the company’s share structure to see if the float and/or authorized shares is bloated with billions of shares.  Also, check to see if the company has a history of doing reverse splits, as this is an indication of a scam company that is interested in selling shares, rather than building a business that rewards shareholders.  Use Google or your favorite search engine to search for the company and company directors with the word “scam” in the search query to see if others have identifed the penny stock as a scam.  If a marijuana penny stock appears to pass the scam evaluation, then turn to search engines again to see if any well known financial websites or commentators are talking about the companies.  If any are talking positively about a particular marijuana penny stock, it may be a good candidate for future big gains the next time the marijuana stock sector heats up.
