E Cannabis Central: Friday Saw Non-Penny Pot Stocks Advance Impressively

In addition, two of the three associated sector categories advanced as well. The details are as follows.

The pot stock universe has 400+ pure-play, cannabis-related and ancillary securities listed on the various Canadian and American stock exchanges of which approx. 300 actively trade. Only 25 of those 300 stocks (i.e. 8%) trade for at least US$1/share and, as such, are included in the Non-penny Pot Stock Index.

  • 5 trade between US$5 and US$10/share and
  • 16 trade between US$1 and US$5/share.
