This collection of stocks, the munKNEE Pure-Play* Pot Stock Index, is the exact opposite of diversified. It represents a place for investment in a new sector, which seems like a worthwhile offering. As such it is a FOCUSED index, not really diversified at all.

Being different also means that it will not perform the same as those highly diversified entities that try to avoid experiencing flat spots or slumps.

So to state the very obvious, if you are different, you are not the same.
