E Cannabis Central: A Possible Action Plan For Conservative Investors

In summary:

The 8 consumer products/pharmaceutical companies:

  • are only up 3.4%, on average, YTD, compared to their associated marijuana companies which are up 48.3%, on average, YTD but 
  • have a beta (a measure of volatility in stock price) of less than the overall market at 0.96, on average, compared to their associated marijuana companies which have an average beta of 1.91 or double that of the overall market.
  • have dividends (excluding Molson Coors) that currently yield 4.2%, on average, while none of the marijuana companies have dividends.


Taking a look at the performance of the above stocks one could conclude that conservative investors who want stable stocks that pay dividends but also would like to be somewhat invested in the marijuana sector might want to consider investing in the above mentioned major corporations rather than in their associated cannabis companies.
