E Canadian LP Pot Stock Sub-Index Decline Continues

The Canadian Licensed Producers (LP) component of the munKNEE Pure-Play Pot Stock Index decline accelerated this past week (-8.2%) after having declined 4.9% in March. 

When so many stocks in the same industry sink, there's usually are common denominator and, in this case, the culprits are:

  • Vice President Kamala Harris' comments this week in an interview with the San Francisco Chronicle in which she stated that the Biden administration has been too busy with other priorities to address marijuana decriminalization or other major cannabis reforms. This relegation of cannabis-related efforts to the back burner could be increasing investors' doubts that any action will be forthcoming in the near future.
  • Natalie Fertig's (with Politico) tweet that the Treasury Department's Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau has been meeting with various cannabis advocacy groups to discuss cannabis regulations. Investors could be more worried about the possibility that cannabis reform measures won't meet expectations than they are that no reform will happen at all.

A non-diversified portfolio is bound to have more variability as interest in that specific segment varies from day to day. Possibly that can be attributed to the very short attention spans of those most involved. (At least that is a reasonable guess.)
