Where positive operating cash flow is not mentioned in association with a constituent in the list below it indicates that the company does not have positive operating cash flow.

In this inflationary timeframe, many MSO’s will go under or be bought on the cheap.  The Planet’s ($PLNHF) management is financially conservative and will survive this.  As I stated many times, this is a long term 3 year buy, and will arguably return huge rewards at this current price.  I continue to buy.  Believe we have a decent chance of getting the SAFE act billed passed in some capacity by years end which would be a catalyst to the entire sector.  Florida sales coming on line next year for the Planet.  Need to be patient and not look at the stock price everyday if you believe like i do in the future.  It is all laid out.  Planet is executing!
