E Cannabis Central: Befitting St. Patrick's Day Sector Saw Much More Green Today

Cannabis stocks crashed 11.2%, on average, on Monday but, befitting St. Patrick's Day, the sector's performance turned much more green remaining virtually unchanged today. Below are the 11 pot stocks that advanced in excess of 10% on the day, 5 that declined by +5% or more and the performance of 7 of the larger cap cannabis companies.

The cannabis market consists of 319 publicly-traded companies of which the vast majority trade for less than $1/share (i.e. are penny stocks) and it is acknowledged that even small changes in such prices can have a very large effect on the percentage change. Because of the aforementioned, this post only highlights those stocks that are currently trading above $1/share.

Below are those pot stocks trading above $1/share that increased in price in excess of 10%, those that declined by at least 5% and the performance of 7 of the remaining largest cap stocks, in descending order:  (Source of data)
