Continued Cannabis Sector Surges
We’ve been all over the cannabis space for years, but the scope and intensity of our observation has been decidedly more focused in past weeks and months. On Sunday, legalized recreational marijuana took effect in California and elsewhere, so you can all expect that the pot sector will be an area of continued interest as the industry as a whole is set to undergo huge growth and change in coming months.
We had a few reminders appear in Friday’s premarket report from among the vast group of pot plays we’ve tracked over an extremely long period at this point. PHOT and VAPE, two old favorites, both followed that up with solid intraday performances to close out 2016.
PHOT posted a nice intraday move from .0167-.0198 (+19%), while VAPE ran from .0122-.0167 (+37%). We’ll continue to track these and other cannabis stocks, including but not limited to: MCOA, HEMP, MCIG, GRNH, TRTC, MYDX, MYHI, CHIT
Oceanic Research & Recovery Inc. ORRV – We began mentioning ORRV on Wednesday, and subsequently would witness a low of .0005. Friday the stock posted a huge finish to the year, running up to a new high of .00271. That marked a three-session swing of 442% We’re going to be keeping an eye peeled for the possibility of continued momentum.
ERF Wireless, Inc. ERFB – Our first tag of ERFB came three Friday’s ago, at which time we would observe a low of .0013. It too broke out to new high on Friday, reaching .02. From our initial low that works out to an overall increase of 54% More gains could be on the horizon in this case as well, so we’ll be watching.
Vanguard Natural Resources, Inc. VNR
We also want to put VNR on our radars as we kick things off on this short week. We’ve included a snapshot below and as you can see, a triple-bottom formation is currently in effect. We are going to be watching for a reversal, which, if the last couple of cycles are any indicator, could lead to a pretty significant PPS increase.
ProShares Short VIX Short-Term Futures SVXY
With the markets as a whole appearing to want to open up 2017 on a high note, we’re going to signal a range of bullish options calls for the SVXY ETF. We’ll be monitoring the SVXY Weekly $93.50-95.50 Calls.
