Yes keep waiting. You have been waiting for 5+ years. We all know and it is well documented.

In the last couple of years my high risk allocation primarily consisted of crypto and MJ stocks, so can't complain at all. I do think these have become overvalued now, so I've been reallocating. No point going into details of why two years ago I felt MJ was going to take off, as it has become common knowledge to every investor by now.

I'm curious to learn what you guys think of hemp, one of the areas I've been researching for my next high risk play. Here's the cliff note version--Cannabis contains THC (part that makes you high) and CBD (part that has medical benefits). Most US states have legalized it for medical use (think CBD), some states have legalized for both medical and recreational use (think THC). Federal govt however hasn't legalized it; consequently most cannabis companies today are based out of Canada and trade on CA exchanges. Hemp contains more CBD than cannabis and almost no THC. There's been some serious effort to legalize hemp, spearheaded by senator Mitch McConnell in particular. Since 2014, area in which hemp is grown in Kentucky increased from 40 acres to over 14,000 acres. I've been keeping an eye on the Farm bill through which McConnell is pushing to legalize hemp. It didn't pass in July, I think they'll try again in November and if it doesn't go through then again some time next year. If it passes the cannabis industry could be disrupted.

Somebody once told me I'd rather buy actual weed than MJ

Great summary. I learned something. Question, do you have a position on HEMP? I've held since Dec just to wait and see. RTI supposedly has the best tech for extraction (? not sure) so consider that too. What do u think?

The bill will definitely pass, if that puts you at ease

btw i think your GE pick for a value play is a good one. I am thinking of buying.

Market feels a little jittery to me however. Even though the overall index may appear stable but it's due to some top weighted stock's performance and not reflective of how many of the stocks are performing.

I’ve recently reactivated my brokerage account and looking to invest some. I haven’t followed the market closely in a while.

I was only invested through my 401k.

But looking for some mutual funds or ETFs now. Not looking to day or short term trade.

Any ideas?

I've heard of HEMP, don't know much about them. Just looked up RTI and found that they have some kind of tie up with Aurora, which is one of my MJ stocks. I also have Aphria, CGC and TLRY although I've been a seller lately. CWEB is the hemp media darling but quite expensive. I've also heard good things about CVSI and ISOL but haven't researched them yet.

Be mindful of ETFs. Often factors like liquidity of the underlying stock and ETFs rebalancing can negatively affect performance.

If you can allocate your funds across a variety of mutual funds then you should be able to construct a portfolio that is favorable to current conditions.

Not sure abotu isol but CVSI looks good to me. Unfortunately not in a position to buy at the moment. Getting ready to buy a house and need cash. I will still keep HEMP though.

S and P or DOW based ETFs make sense but with the market at all time highs, and with such an unconventional President at the helm, the market is due to take a hit. But you can make money there too...there's SDOW which gains 2.5 points for every point the actual DOW loses. But its super high risk.

Granted I'm an investing novice, and I don't believe that any analyst has a clue of what is going on. The market is purely based on luck and intuition...a Wharton degree won't help you. You do have to know what the trend is or rather will be, and then get lucky.

For example, I bought some Spotify stock hoping it would be the next Netflix and sure enough I made some siginificant gains, but now its fallen below what I bought it for. I'm confident it will go up again, but there is always a chance it might not.

Not a long lasting turmoil but I don't think it's a minor hiccup either. Market was feeling jittery and this sell off was kind of expected I thought . Problem is 2019 will be rough year with fed rising interest rate . They not gonna slow down (rightly so) . 2018 due to small increase along with other a stimulus like corporate tax cut ..Market escaped shedding from rate hike and it happened in the back . But there are no more pending "stimulus" and I think 2019 will be testing for market with rate hikes ..

I think I lost close to 20 grand this week probably much more ..not even looking ... but I think more pain is to come .

I want rate hike ...I think it's a good thing over long run. this will atleast give CDs /high savings worth a look for investments .. and housing price to ease .

https://www.wsj.com/articles/uber-pr...s&page=1&pos=1

Uber proposed value in ipo 120 billion dollars.

I been dying to have this company go public for years now but they decided to go public as a very mature company and with in my opinion a ridiculous price tag. What's the upside now? If valued at 50 billion or so you can argue that you can take it past 100 but at 120.. DAMN!!! And they are still losing money.

I can forsee this as a long term play only if it's able to use automatic driverless car as it's mode of transport. Their revenues rises significantly but also brings in a lot of headache and responsibilities that's now carried by the independent contractors. But eventually can be a game changer and massively profitable. But other than that at current state it's a pretty rich valuation in my opinion.
