Hero Stocks helps provide coverage on the best private placement opportunities and deals for accredited investor in the medical marijuana / cannabis industry. Learn why getting invested in private placements at the early stages of a marijuana based company can reward shareholders as the industry continues to become legalized for medical use.
This is an exciting time to be an accredited investor in the medical marijuana / cannabis sector and you should take the opportunity to evaluate these private placement while they are available during the early stages of financing required by these companies. The big fund managers are only entering the marijuana industry now and some are reluctant or cannot invest in private placements because of the lack of uncertainty around rules and regulation by the U.S. Federal Government. Once the big fund managers are given the green light to start investing in this sector, these early investors will benefit from the sectors growth and the share prices will rise with additional buying pressure coming from funds. Once that happens the market caps will rise to a point where the fund managers will be in a position to start getting invested in the marijuana sector.
They key to investing in the cannabis space is to identify several different companies which standout above the rest, get invested early enough (especially now that many of the company’s stock price have corrected) and then wait for the broker and institutional money to start aggressively buying the sector.
As an accredited investor in the cannabis industry you will come across many opportunities with companies looking for funding, a key success for any company is their approach to acquiring customers and plans for retention. We have spoken with many companies who are licensed producers and applicants under MMPR, and only a few have a well-defined customer intake/retention strategy from the beginning. Most are hoping to acquire customers with a “build it and they will come” strategy.
We are at the early stages of this industry and with over 800 applicants sitting with Health Canada hoping to get a producers license, we feel that the hardest driver of success will be the company’s strategy for acquiring and retaining customers. So one major contributing factor to choosing an investment in the medical marijuana industry is to choose a company with a great strategy that is executable. While the number of authorized producers should increase over time, there will be a small number of relatively niche producers (small scale and with few varieties) that will be quite successful. The companies who can retain the right customer, build a strong consumer brand with limited marketing tools and excel at customer service should do quite well over the next 3-5 years.
