So I started a TDameritrade account just to tool around with stocks.

I am incredibly tempted to buy stock in marijuana related companies...cause they're so damn cheap and potential for the future with the country getting more and more accepting of MJ

Are there that many publicly traded companies in that line of business?

Seems like a risky move right now due to its illegality under federal law. Also, considering it's an election year, I would expect that the election of either candidate (neither of whom support legalization) would drive down share prices of such a company. Just my thoughts, anyway.

There seems to be 3 main ones that I''ve seen reported on. And their shares are already so damn small (2 cents, 5 cents, etc) that even if I bought a significant amount of stock, a price dive wouldn't cost me all that much money haha.

Seems they mostly deal with servicing states like Colorado and California right now. And while Obama doesn't seem to support legalization, he does seem content to leave it to the states. I figure within the next 5-10 years we'll get at least a few more states to legalize it.

yeah I have yet to find one that I feel confident investing in. But goddamn if weed and knowing what our generation feels about weed and its legalization doesn't make me intrigued about the few stocks I've found. The question is, are these companies going to still be around when it eventually becomes highly profitable.

Pretty much. There's a good reason they're penny stocks in the first place.

One of the weed stocks I'm looking at was trading at nearly 40 dollars before the crash in '08, so it wasn't always in bad shape

I understand that most penny stocks are generally awful, but it seems that only a few of these weed stocks exist out there. I'm gonna continue to read up on the treatments the one company is pushing to see what the potential is.


Seriously, if anyone else here wants to talk stock market trading and all that, PLEASE do. I'm really looking to get into this and wanna read as much as I can from others.

The stock market loves democrats.
Quote:
The BGOV Barometer shows that, over the five decades since John F. Kennedy was inaugurated, $1,000 invested in a hypothetical fund that tracks the Standard & Poor’s 500 Index (SPX) only when Democrats are in the White House would have been worth $10,920 at the close of trading yesterday. That’s more than nine times the dollar return an investor would have realized from following a similar strategy during Republican administrations.
A $1,000 stake invested in a fund that followed the S&P 500 under Republican presidents, starting with Richard Nixon, would have grown to $2,087 on the day George W. Bush left office...The Democratic edge is so large that the party comes out ahead even without counting Bill Clinton (the Democrat with the biggest S&P 500 gain) and George W. Bush (the Republican with the worst market record).
