Investments in cannabis are at an all-time high; with profits soaring from medical sales to the legalization of this miracle plant in more progressive states, it seems that it’s time to get on the bandwagon and start earning some passive income from this movement.
How do we capitalize on this era of pot promotion? Even if you aren’t a seasoned investor, profiting from pot stocks has never been easier. There is a wealth of information in print and on the World Wide Web that can help you to get started earning money from even the most meager startup investment. The more confident you become in your profit, the more you’ll be able to allocate toward this lucrative investment.
Here are some “best tips” for capitalizing on the cannabis movement and profiting from pot stock investment:
1. Set realistic expectations
Investing $100 initially won’t net you 1.5 million in the next couple of years; slow and steady progression wins the race. With consistent profits, companies like Canopy Growth Corporation are netting a 350 percent profit over the course of the last year. With these gains there are bound to be losses; commit to riding the wave over the long term, and you’ll see your money grow.
2. Focus on the long run
When analyzing an investment, it’s important to look at it from a future perspective. The cannabis industry is taking off right now, but it will soon cool off and become an obscure investment option at some point. Over time, we’ll see long term gains as people who stayed the course with their investments see a payout at the end of their investment career.
3. You don’t need to be a professional trader
More trading doesn’t necessarily mean more profits, it’s investing early with future global leaders that will determine the success of your own investments. Finding that golden egg that multiplies its stock value hundreds of times will ensure that you find the best value.
Picking the right combinations of companies to invest in will determine the level of success that you experience. Right now, there are over 250 companies competing for the title of “most lucrative and profitable”. Do some digging and find out what kind of success these companies are experiencing and go where you see growth and consistency.
5. Don’t wait for a pullback
If you wait too long, you’ll miss the boat. Watching a stock that is consistently riding high should not be a turnoff, and waiting till it goes low may reduce your chances of missing out on a wonderful opportunity. You can adjust your portfolio to buy and sell anytime; pick and choose the ones that you are interested in sticking with for the long haul, and watch your profits soar.
6. Optimize taxes with a Roth IRA
Big profits have one drawback—big taxes. A good tax strategy to employ when dabbling in cannabis stocks is putting them directly into a Roth IRA. Under this umbrella, all of your profits will grow tax-free; the only time you’ll pay taxes on this income is upon withdrawal from the account. Check with your tax professional to see how you can continue to optimize your stock growth under tax-sheltered annuities.
Doing a little research, taking some extra spending money that you have lying around, and investing in the cannabis market is smart business. You’re going to see consistent gains as you work toward growing a portfolio that will potentially net thousands for your future.
