Navy Capital’s one-room office in midtown Manhattan could probably fit in the coat closets of many of its competitors. But the hedge fund’s digs belie the firm’s success in betting on something few of its peers will touch: cannabis.

Since the Navy Capital Green Fund launched in May 2017 the company said it’s increased assets under management to almost $100 million from $10 million and returned more than 100 percent net of fees last year.

As for 2018, “we’re having a good year so far,” Sean Stiefel, Navy Capital’s 30-year-old founder said in an interview at the company’s office on Lexington Avenue, where the only adornment is a white board labeled “prospects.”

As Canada moves toward legalization of recreational marijuana on Oct. 17 and the U.S. shows signs of growing leniency, hedge funds such as Navy are leading the advance of institutional money into a sector that’s so far been dominated by retail investors.

Currently, institutions account for only a fraction of shares held in many pot companies: big firms hold 6.5 percent of Aphria

Is the Cannabis Industry as Green as Its Product – Marijuana Stocks (press release) (blog)

The cannabis industry has seen a massive boom over the course of the past several years, but many have questioned the ecological impact of such a fast-paced industry. The marijuana industry has also been able to produce incredibly large businesses with massive amounts of potential for the future, but growth strategies are quickly being questioned as to how eco-friendly their businesses are.

Doug Morrow, the director of thematic research as Sustainalytics, stated that “there’s a bit of a disconnect between investors enthusiasm and what’s going on on the ground. The big four cannabis companies show quite a stunning lack of disclosure on a lot of these issues.” The company has been working to secure some of this eco-data for some time now, but has found that the companies do not fare well on their scale of sustainability. Morrow continued to state that the environmental health factors will soon become a large part of the industry as the market counties to grow. There is no way that an industry based on the growth of plants, cannot take into consideration its effect on the greater ecosystem.

Many have stated that the large companies within the cannabis industry should begin to disclose this data to the public so that individuals can see which company is the most-eco friendly, and be able to choose based on that principle if they would like. A company known as Eco Firma, based out of Oregon, is the first truly sustainable cannabis producer. By utilizing LED grow lights and solar power, the company has managed to make their cannabis operations completely carbon-neutral. This is quite an amazing feat considering all of the

How Do I Invest In The Marijuana Stock Market? – PotNetwork (blog)

A PotNetwork Special Report

Investing in the marijuana stock market is no casual endeavor. Cannabis’ projected worth is in the billions, and there is a lot of money to be made —or lost. With this much cash on the table, you need to do your research.

No two pot stocks are alike, and your strategy (or lack thereof) could make or break your cannabis stock investment. If you’re thinking about investing in marijuana stocks like these, read this introduction first. Here is everything you need to know to start investing in the marijuana stock market.

Investing In The Marijuana Stock Market For Beginners

In layman’s terms, investing, whether it’s in weed, or marijuana stocks or anything else means you are giving your money to a company or product in the hope that they will be successful so you can reap a profit. The idea is to create long-term wealth with your investments.

An effective investment strategy will encourage you to invest in strong companies who show promise. You do not want stock in a company, be it cannabis or some other product that you have to check on every day. In fact, studies show that day trading is not as lucrative as it seems. You want a solid investment you can stick with for a long time and trust to perform successfully.

A Quick Word on Small-Cap Marijuana Stocks

This article focuses on investing in marijuana stocks specifically. If you are considering investing in pot stocks, realize that most of them are small-cap investments. Your investment in a cannabis company with a smaller market cap has better odds of growing over a three-to-five year period than other big share companies in the market. You will also avoid the competition that comes along with big company investors.

Here's The Latest Marijuana Stock To Seek A US Exchange Listing – Investor's Business Daily

Marijuana stock Sunniva has revealed plans to spin off its Canadian assets and seek a separate listing for them on the Nasdaq and Toronto stock exchanges.

The spun-off Canadian assets would include Sunniva Medical, which is building a 740,000-square-foot greenhouse in British Columbia that will be able to produce 100,000 kilograms of cannabis flower.

Sunniva already has a two-year contract to supply Canopy Growth (CGC) with 45% of the production from the forthcoming greenhouse.

Meanwhile, the Sunniva parent company will retain the U.S. assets. Those include CP Logistics, which will operate a proposed 489,000-square-foot greenhouse in Cathedral City, Calif., that will produce up to 160,000 kilograms of marijuana annually.

The facility is scheduled to be fully operational in the third quarter and will include an on-site dispensary with a distribution license.

Sunniva CEO Anthony Holler claimed the current company is undervalued, and that the spinoff will unlock value for existing shareholders.

“Creating a new Canadian company with our Canadian assets and listing them on the TSX and NASDAQ would be expected to bring added visibility and additional analyst coverage to our story and has the potential to attract institutional investors that are currently unable to purchase stock on the CSE or purchase companies holding US assets,” Holler said in a press release Wednesday.

Among marijuana stocks, Canopy Growth, whose Canadian ticker is WEED, fell 0.1% on the stock market today. Cronos Group (CRON) rose 1.15%, while cannabis-focused exchange-traded fund ETFMG Alternative Harvest (MJ) retreated 0.5%, and AdvisorShares Vice ETF (ACT), which also has exposure to cannabis, dipped 0.1%.

U.S. Opportunity For Marijuana Stock

Sunniva will continue to trade on the Canadian Securities Exchange under the ticker SNN.

But the proposed spinoff faces a number of hurdles. It requires both Sunniva shareholder approval and Canadian Securities
