Marijuana Stocks Blazing to New Highs in 2013
On Monday, we encouraged everyone to check out one of our recent marijuana stock reports, where we highlighted no less than ten plays in the up-and-coming sector. We feel like a broken record at this point, having pounded the table on these stocks for a very long time, but we won’t quit parroting ourselves until we’re sure everyone understands: If you ever asked yourself “what is the next ‘big thing’?”, this is it. Marijuana stocks are the next big thing, and we’ve done our absolute best to show everyone we believe just that. It has become clear to most lawmakers that the advantages to ending marijuana prohibition, particularly from a fiscal standpoint, far outweigh any alleged drawbacks. The Marijuana Stock Index has risen over 900%% since October, and it’s no coincidence. Just take a look at this article explaining how the marijuana industry is gearing up for a “legislative windfall” regarding the legal status of the now mostly-illicit substance.
This week, MWIP has thus far traded in a range from .0585-.12 gaining 105% If you take into the account the low since we first mentioned MWIP (.0024), our total cumulative gains have reached a staggering 4900% as of yesterday’s high.
ERBB hit a high of .0163 yesterday, which represents move of 104% from this week’s previous low of .008.
PureSafe Water Systems, Inc. PSWS
PSWS has been a successful new play on our watchlist, performing very well so far this week. It first appeared on our extended watchlist on Monday, when it was trading as low as .0049. Yesterday the stock closed at the high of day at .0075, a 53% gain from Monday’s low.
This morning’s PR:
PLAINVIEW, N.Y., Feb. 13, 2013 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ — Leslie Kessler, CEO of PureSafe Water Systems, Inc. (OTCBB: PSWS) (OTCQB: PSWS), is pleased to announce the signing of strategic agreements with Global Equipment Marketing, Inc. (“GEM”) and Engineering Technologies Group, Inc. (“ETG”) of Hopkinton, MA.
Peregrine Pharmaceuticals, Inc. PPHM
Those of you who have followed us for long enough, know that PPHM is an old-time favorite of ours. We’ve tracked this play for the better part of a year now, and in that span, we’ve seen it make some stellar gains.
PPHM first began appearing in our watchlist in mid-August 2012, as it ran from 2.30-3.09, after which time it pulled back to 1.76, before skyrocketing as high as 5.50.
More recently, we’ve been looking for PPHM to challenge 2.78, a recent swing high, that represents the current main area of resistance on the chart. The company released favorable test results for its pancreatic cancer treatment this morning, so be sure to check this stock out if you have not already done so.
This morning’s PPHM headline reads:
